The war on Americans

Since 2001, over $34 billion dollars in grant money has been given to local law enforcement to militarize them in the 'war on terror'.  Unfortunately, the end result has been to expand this into a war on the American people as military grade weapons, armor, and tactics have been used more frequently in simply criminal arrests, and raids on non-terror targets.

Since Sept. 11, 2001, thousands of communities across the nation have taken advantage of more than $34 billion in central government grants to equip police and sheriffs’ departments with assault rifles and exotic weaponry.

 In 2011 alone, approximately $2 billion in grants were awarded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), along with $500 million more allocated to existing programs.

The accounting for this expense was recently compiled by the Center for Investigative Reporting and detailed in a report, “America’s War Within: Homeland security and the first 10 years of the war on terror.” – American Free Press


For those who fail to learn history, the creation of a bogie man, in this case, terrorists on every street corner, has inevtiably led to the bogie man being the very people governments promised to protect.  1920's and 30's Europe is the biggest example of how a government used straw men (communists) to create internal gangs and armed security forces that eventually led to imposing tyranny on their own citizens.
