“What’s happening here is we’re building a domestic military wearing the exact same combat gear that we had in Iraq . . ."
former Marine Corps Colonel Peter Martino
In full view of an apathetic public that often drools on itself while playing with their shiny new phones, the Feds are funding and organizing an American version of the Imperial Roman Praetorian Guard.
This new Federally directed "Terrorist Police" will be, like the now Federalized National Guard, called into service when the Feds need more boots on the ground in local cities.
A SWAT training exercise mounted by the Broward Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Customs & Border Protection, and the FBI portrayed “native born” Americans carrying out a terrorist attack on Port Everglades, part of the accelerating demonization of American citizens as domestic extremists.
The drill was based around “sovereign citizens” attempting to steal a shipment of ammunition traveling through the facility by seizing hostages and planting bombs as part of their wider agenda to overthrow the government.
“These weren’t foreign-born America-hating terrorists. These were native-born America-hating terrorists. And they were making things difficult for the good guys,” barks a dramatic Florida Sun Sentinel report.
The whole spectacle was basically an opportunity for the Fort Lauderdale Police SWAT team to show off its arsenal of militarized gear, including “Two Bears — massive armored vehicles with turrets for automatic weapons fire — a beefed up front-end loader that lifted an overturned car like a toy and Hummers packed with serious firepower.”
The exercise ended with the seven terrorists – being played by FBI agents – “neutralized” and all the hostages rescued.
Last month, former Marine Corps Colonel Peter Martino, who was stationed in Fallujah and trained Iraqi soldiers, warned that the Department of Homeland Security is working with law enforcement to build a “domestic army,” because the Federal government is “afraid of its own citizens.”
Speaking in relation to a decision on whether the Concord City Council would accept a $260,000 Homeland Security grant on behalf of the Central New Hampshire Special Operations Unit to purchase a BearCat armored vehicle, Martino cautioned, “What’s happening here is we’re building a domestic military,” adding that police are now “wearing the exact same combat gear that we had in Iraq, only it was a different color,” reports Infowars News.
Characterization of politically motivated Americans as domestic extremists has become a familiar practice for the DHS.
