Letter to Senator Cornyn (R-Texas) from Captain Terry M. Hestilow United States Army, Retired...

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

how many of you think he’s wearing a tinfoil hat?

I don’t.

Dear friends, the following is a copy of my correspondence with Senator Cornyn concerning the arming of the DHS for war against the citizens of our nation.  You are each encouraged to copy and properly amend this letter to send to your own senators and members of the U.S. House.  Further, I am somewhat overwhelmed at the response to my posts leading up to this letter on this issue.  At this point almost 3,000 of you have shared my original post, I have 994 new friends requests, 61 messages, and 70 new comments to process.  Please be patient with me and pray that this window of communication remains open to all of us as we respond to this threat against our Constitution and our people.  I am awed by you, by your positive response, and your wonderful support.  We each have a role to play in standing against this present tyranny.  Part of that proper response is sending them a letter like this from YOU, and following it up to make sure it remains a “hot button” issue that must be resolved.  God bless you as you honor your oaths and your obligations as citizens of this free nation.  May we once again know honorable leadership and peace at home.  With all sincerity and respect–Resolved, Captain Terry M. Hestilow, United States Army, Retired. via Facebook

The Honorable Senator John Cornyn, State of Texas
United States Senate
517 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C.  20510

Re:  Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and that agencies preparation for war against citizens of the United States of America.

Dear Senator Cornyn,

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.  To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America.

Significant is the fact 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.

the Obama administration is deliberately defunding, overextending, and hollowing the Department of Defense; the only legitimate agency of the U.S. government with a war mission.

This act of the Obama administration stands as a glaring threat of war against our nation’s citizens!  This act of the Obama administration can only be understood as a tyrannical threat against the Constitution of the United States of America!  If left unresolved, 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 only proper response to this threat against the American people is for the representatives of the People, the members of the U.S. House and Senate, 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).  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.  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!

Finally, for more than two centuries the nation has lived in peace at home because of the protections of our legitimate military and the many appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies, supported by Constitutional courts.  We stand today at a cross-road.  Will we allow this present Administration to overthrow our United States Constitution and its legal processes to amend injustices, or, will we honor our obligations to defend the Constitution against a “domestic” enemy?  Our Constitution lays out the proper methods of resolving our differences; and it does not include its overthrow by a rogue agency of a Marxist leadership at home.  You, sir, are our constitutionally elected agent to defend our Constitution at home.  We are counting upon you.  We remain aware, however, of this present threat and will not expose ourselves as an easy prey to the authors of the destruction of our nation.

I know that this letter demands much of you.  We elected you because we, the citizens of the State of Texas, believe that you are up to the task at hand and will, against all threats, honor your oath and office.  We are also writing to your fellow members of the House and Senate to stand in integrity with the Constitution and against this present threat by the Obama administration and his DHS.

We refuse to surrender our Constitution or our nation!

      They will hide behind denials right up to the end.

      The good Captain has used good common sense to point out the “king has no clothes.” As a former military person, I share his concerns and unshakable belief in our servicemen and women. Bring on the fight Progressive Leftists. You shall lose.

      Even my local Marshal views the DHS troops as “uninspired government employees working by the hour.” They will be mopped up very quickly.

      Molon labe.

      Hark: I hear the tramp of hobnailed boots on the front porch of Captain Hestilow’s home! Between Comrade Dear and Glorious Ruler and his version of Reichsfuehrer – SS Eric Holder, this scene is believable.

      Captain Hestilow,

      It is obvious that the “proper response” you speak of–the disarming of the DHS–will never be forthcoming. Republicans have voted overwhelmingly in favor of the various assaults against the liberty of the American public beginning with the Authorization for the Use of Military Force and the Patriot Act, up to and including the NDAA of 2013 which provides Barack Obama dictatorial powers. We can depend upon the so-called “conservative” Republican Party for nothing.

      There must eventually be a 2nd American Revolution. And when it comes, we who are willing to take up arms will be at a profound disadvantage due to the lack of organization and training. There may be a “rifle behind every blade of grass,” but it will be held by people who are generally clueless as to what they will eventually accomplish and how they will get it done.
      I believe 8-10 million Americans will join the patriot side against the tyrants hoping to enslave them, that is, 8-10 million willing to kill or be killed to preserve their liberty. It is a number which will grow exponentially upon reports of thuggish Obama minions committing murder in their efforts to confiscate firearms. But the majority will act as individuals rather than groups. The time to organize is NOW. But it will require willing and trustworthy leaders and it will require plans of operation.

      There’s nothing in this world that’s going to stop that new world order planned civil war because it cost 16 trillion dollars and somebodies expecting to be paid back. When the civil war starts these criminals need to be arrested I wouldn’t miss their hanging for all the tea in communist infiltrating china. The American patriots be warned about high technology like STS cloaking it makes the predator look like pale in comparison. I’ve picked my side I’m a patriot, I’m not scared anymore and I’m ready to die for country if need be.
