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.

“The extraordinary level of ammunition purchases made by Homeland Security seems to have, in states such as my own, created an extreme shortage of ammunition to the point where many gun owners are unable to purchase any,” California Congressman Doug LaMalfa wrote in the letter.

Concerns that the DHS is engaged in a domestic arms buildup against the People have also been echoed by notable political figures and such mainstream publications as Forbes Magazine, who earlier this month called for a “national conversation” on the topic.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was recently portrayed by media as a “conspiracy theorist” after she posted a remark on Facebook warning that imminent financial collapse could be the reason “why the Feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”

Similar concerns were also recently made public by Fox Business host Lou Dobbs when he asked NRA president Wayne LaPierre, during his March 4 broadcast, about the bizarre solicitations.

As an overwhelming number of Americans grow distressed over the curious purchases, mainstream media agencies, such as the Associated Press, Politico, Media Matters, and the Atlantic Wire, have frantically tried to tamp down speculation of a threat to civil liberties, refusing to conduct actual research into the subject and instead regurgitating superficial explanations issued by government officials.

A recent report that the DHS holds a $2 million contract with a firing range target manufacturer that produces shooting targets of armed pregnant women, children and elderly gun owners depicted in residential settings, has also not helped suppress speculation.

Despite numerous pleas to address the matter, the DHS has yet to issue a plausible explanation as to why they have apparently been building up a veritable ammunition and firearm stockpile domestically – purchasing profane amounts of riot gear, armored military vehicles, bulletproof checkpoints, and some 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles – and still refuses to answer questions from citizen journalists and multiple elected representatives.

Below is retired United States Army Captain Terry M. Hestilow’s letter to Sen. Cornyn in its entirety:

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!

Resolved,

Captain Terry M. Hestilow
United States Army, Retired
Fort Worth, Texas

      Well so far the only foreign military that has been on the rest of the world like stink is the US one (foreign from everyone else’s point of view)! Maybe it is America’s time to get back what it loves to give!

    • 5 War Veteran says:

      “ALL THE ONES WHO TOOK AN OATH,LIED” Buddy you are waaaaay wrong on that one. Yes the political elite lied. The oath they took is the same one that every serviceman and every police officer and every public servant takes. I took that oath in the early 70s and I took it seriously then as I do now.
      I will go to my death honoring that oath. So will hundreds of thousands if not millions of veterans.

    When Marshall law is enforced, it is FEMA who becomes actually becomes the ruler over the land. The head of FEMA plays a pivotal role. The EU has similar laws, and the head of the EU ‘FEMA ‘ will take over parliament upon the EU enforcing Marshall law. His seat number 666 remains vacant at this point awaiting his call to Rule The
    Land. For many reasons the EU and the US have all their communications classified. I believe they are acting in sync with each
    other for a greater rule than just us here in America. Look at all the ways Obama is enacting laws which gives the UN power over the
    United States. It is a greater conspiracy than just that of Obama.
    Not defending him by no means!

  5. Archie1954 says:

    It is unfortunate that demented individuals such as this former military officer are or were in such important positions of power. It makes you wonder how many more such nutcases are running around doing their worst to destabilize the American polity. No one ever blames the true source of America’s disastrous problems, Bush and his followers! They are the reason the US is in turmoil. you cannot expect a nation that has been stripped of its very belief in itself to be able to pull itself out of an economic and societal breakdown. Bush robbed the US while he was in the oval office. He stole its very heart and replaced it with dross. A more incompentent, venal and sociopathic president has never been ensconced in the Whitehouse before. It will take many more years before even the first light of dawn will drive away the darkness Bush, Cheney and their gang of psycopathic thugs brought down upon the US. Americans will just have to work through it.

    • Patriot86 says:

      You’re an idiot, it’s on record that Bush made several attempts to keep the American economy from imploding on itself, and when it did people like you pointed fingers at the only one who seemed to see it coming. I’m not going to defend everything Bush/Cheney did, I’ve got plenty of problems with how they handled things myself, but if you’re so smart, what are they doing with all of the ammo and firearms and riot gear then?? Demanding an explanation for something so odd and scary isn’t being crazy, it’s being skeptical of our government, which is led by a man who can’t even prove who he is. I rest my case, Nobel Prize my ass. He seemed like a man of promise, only to turn out to be a man of promises.

      • Archie1954 says:

        No wonder the country is in such dire straits when people like you are so ignorant they even decry the truth and spout lies trying to make it seem like the truth. Sorry, I’m not like a majority of your countrymen who will believe anything you and others of your ilk say. “Several efforts” like borrowing from China, like starting two trillion dollar wars. Let’s just say that incompetence knew no bounds under Bush and the present president doesn’t even come close and never will!

        • 5 War Veteran says:

          Archie,
          Why are you here? You say you are not an American and that you are not in the country at what point do your comments have any bearing? You cannot accomplish anything here and are only fomenting hate and discontent. You never answer questions and you provide no value to the conversation.
          It is your opinion that the Officer is “demented” where are your qualifications to say such things? You ASSume too much and you make highly opinionated statements that add no value to the conversation.
          Definition of internet troll – In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

          • Archie1954 says:

            And besides that I would love not to be here and leave your country alone to handle its stupidity by itself, but unfortunately for the world, the US dollar is currently the reserve currency, the US military is currently the biggest impediment to world peace and the US CIA is the most prolific terrorist organisation in the world, so I have to be here to make sure that ignorance is pointed out and some sanity added to what is otherwise a love fest for fools.

    O is at the helm, I don’t care who the puppet is, he has the power to stop all of this. He is the one who has implemented these actions against us. I just don’t get it, why there isn’t anyone that can put a stop to all of this ? How could he possibly condone it? He is mulatto, both white and black. PRAY

    Victoria,
    Color has nothing to do with it. Wealth of the Elite does. The US Government is owned by their elite masters. It is and always has been greed. The infrastructure has been built and now we are expendable. The Georgia Guidestones list the Elite 10 Commandments. The very first tells of reducing the planetary population to 500 million. With 7 billion living it means 6.5 billion must die.
    If you do not work directly for the Elite you must die. That is their plan, it always has been. The Guidestones were the warning and most Americans failed to recognize it.
    You will find in very short order that many “conspiracy theories” are actually facts supported by US Government data.
    Chemtrails? GEO-ENGINEERING, the US Aerosol Spraying Program, is not a conspiracy and global warming is caused by this program.
    Apparently not too many people remember the scientists warnings of the early 1990s concerning the impending Ice Age?
    Why do thousands of scientists and engineers agree global warming is not happening and yet the few paid by the government vehemently say it is? Because they are paid to say it.
    The elite own the media, the news and the movie studios. They feed us what they want us to see hear and believe.
    It is not a conspiracy that CNN Atlanta faked gas attacks during the first gulf war filmed on the roof of their Atlanta CNN building. It is not a conspiracy that on 9/11 people were staged to act as witnessed and one reporter was caught asking people what their roles were. It is not a conspiracy that Anderson Cooper did green screen shots of a supposed visit to Sandy Hook.

    Victoria, Obama is the puppet you refer to and whose strings are being pulled by the power elite. Who are the power elite you might ask? Very good question. You merely have to Google the membership lists of groups like; Tri-Lateral Commission, Bilderberg Group and Council on Foreign Relations to see who the traitors to America are. These are the people who want tto rule not only this country but the entire world. Obama, Bush, Clinton, they are merely pawns in the larger game.

  16. I know the Captains heart is in the right place but no one is going ot do a thing at the DHS. They are arrogant backwards and drunk wiht power, Someone should make a citizens arrest , someone from the Senate or Congress but I doubt they will od htat, so all we can do is wait and see what they are planning on trying. We will get no help form our own troops , they are being kept in Afghanistan and other middle east hot spots , th eplan wa sthat no troop sever be here to defend us, a few come home to visit at a time and then ar esent back for the 3rd and 4th tour of duty, I cant’ imagine how many are left .I honestly thing the USA can be leveled and no one would come to our aid, certainly not the Senate, they are afraid of getting involved. Obama has been planning this for a long time, he is not going to stop now . God Help us all.
