Retired Army Captain Warns DHS Acquisitions Are Bold Threat Of War Against The American People

Says Americans may have to prepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against the Obama Administration’s “coup” against the People

On Saturday, retired United States Army Captain Terry M. Hestilow publicly voiced grave concerns over the Department of Homeland Security’s absurd acquisitions, posting a letter he sent to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) on Facebook labeling the Obama administration’s recent appropriation of weapons a “bold threat of war” against citizens of the United States of America.

“It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America,” the decorated retired Army Captain’s letter begins.


Referring to the DHS’ solicitations for nearly two billion rounds of ammunition and recent purchase of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush protected armored personnel carriers as “a tyrannical threat against the Constitution” and a deliberate attempt to defund the Department of Defense, the retired Army Captain asked Sen. Cornyn to honor his oath to the American people and the U.S. Constitution and “to demand in clear terms that the Administration cannot ignore, that the Department of Homeland Security immediately surrender their newly appropriated weapons of war to the Department of Defense (DoD).”

“Significant is the fact,” Captain Hestilow writes, “that at the same time the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States in accordance with his 2008 campaign speech claiming,

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve gotta (sic) have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded [as the United States military]”–Candidate Barack Obama, 2008.

“Further, since the DHS has assumed a position in the Administration to enforce the tyrannical acts of this president against the People of the United States against the limits of the United States Constitution, it remains for the United States Congress to exercise its limiting power in the balancing of powers established by our founding fathers, to disestablish and dissolve the DHS as soon as possible,” the retired Captain’s letter continues.

Calling the DHS purchases a “glaring threat of war against our nation’s citizens,” Hestilow says the actions “can only be understood as a tyrannical threat against the Constitution of the United States of America.”

“If left unresolved,” Hestilow states, “the peace loving citizens who have sworn to defend the United States Constitution ‘against all enemies, both foreign and domestic’ are left no option except to prepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against this Administration’s ‘coup’ against the People and the foundations of liberty fought for and defended for the past 238 years. We have no choice if we honor our oaths.”

The former Army Captain cites Adolf Hitler’s rise to power as evidence of the outcome of allowing such an agency free rein, stating,

“One needs only to look to the rise of Adolf Hitler, and his associated DHS organizations, the SA and the SS, of 1932-1934, to see the outcome of allowing an agency of government this kind of control over the free citizens of a nation. The people of Germany could not have imagined, until it was too late, the danger of allowing a tyrant this kind of power. We must not be so naïve as to think it will not happen to us as well if we remain passive toward this power grab by the Marxist Obama administration!”

The post is garnering unprecedented support, according to the retired Captain. Within a day, he says it has received over 3,000 shares, in addition to lassoing in 994 new friend requests. He is also encouraging others to copy and properly amend the letter to send to their own senators and members of the U.S. House.

The retired Army Captain’s message follows another letter penned by 15 Congressmen earlier in the week to the DHS asking if the ammo purchases were part of an effort to strategically deny American people access to ammunition.

      Bernanke and Greenspan have deliberately on the illuminatis/ rothchilds orders bankrupted and help destroy America’s economy! It’s not enough to destroy and bankrupt the US government they are going to make to where there’s no money left in retirement accounts, savings accounts and totally made the US Dollar worthless! Guess what fellow Americans try using those worthless dollars to buy oil from the Middle East! No oil means no food grown, no oil means manufactures come to a halt. America will be a 3rd world nation before this year ends!
      That is why DHS and Obama has bought 2700 mraps and 2 billion hollow point rounds!
      It is satans will that America be bankrupted and destroyed because the Christians in America are the threat to him! The illuminati are satans disciples and his church, they do his will just as the Christian denominations and churches do GODs will on earth! In the end we gone win though has GOD not said so! Even so GOD Speed JESUS!

      I urge every American to to do 4 things if you truly are Americans!
      (1) call or write your congressman and demand Department of homeland security be made to turn over 2 billion hollow point rounds and 2700 mraps to the department of defense and or divided among the 50 states national guards units. And if they REFUSE defund them which will close the program
      (2) This is an important one! To fight the rothchild banking system which is the hand of satans power on earth do this! Remove your savings and checking accounts from every bank even down to the local credit union and pay with cash or money order! By keeping your money in the banks your supporting the banking system which is all controlled by the rothchild federal reserve system the hand of satan on earth. You will loose every dime in savings and checking anyway when they collapse the stock market and dollar before this year 2013 runs out! Just look what they did to Cyprus and that’s nothing to what’s comming!
      (3) remove all your investments from the stock market and investment plans such as 401k plans, bonds any money you have invested get it out and take the tax loss or you will loose it! This is going to be the biggest theft in human history! Why do you think Obama and his illuminati pals has bought 2 billion rounds for department of homeland security and also 2700 mraps also! They have to protect themselves and get away with the heist!
      (4) stock up immediately on 1 year supply of food for your family and they are Mormon websites that can help you real quickly on how to do this! Your food storage will not go bad in 10 years if you do the Mormon method food storage!
      Good luck folks we have entered the biblical tribulation period! GOD Speed JESUS!
