How the regime creates a climate of fear as they selectively target Americans for raids that strip them of their arms and possessions.
There was a time long ago in America when citizens were to be automatically presumed innocent until PROVEN guilty in a court of law.
That no longer exists in the United States of Obama’s Amerika. Any defense lawyer who has a shred of honesty will tell you, the moment an arrest or raid is conducted, those arrested for any reason automatically confers guilt in the eyes of law enforcement and the general public. Practical reality is that one must prove their innocence in the courts of law and media generated narratives that generate public opinion where odds are horrifically stacked against the individual charged.
Armed SWAT raids by DHS the ATF and other government alphabets create a climate of fear and nearly automatically render those raided with contempt from their neighbors who – without even knowing who, what or why – assume that the person/family that was raided, are guilty of some heinous crime and deserve what happened to them. Trust me when I tell you that all the entities of power in this nation understand this fact, and they will use it to their advantage in establishing Obama’s MarxoFascist tyranny.
While it was disconcerting to witness an entire state’s law enforcement panic and open fire on innocent citizens in the desperate search for Chris Dorner, it is the law-abiding citizen that are easy and frequent targets of political examples to be made.
Given what I have read of the Obama regime arming up the federal behemoth and agencies like the Weather Service getting hollow-point ammunition for unspecified reasons – and the fact that implementing much of Obama’s agenda has enforcement mechanism in the DHS, ATF, FBI & IRS – I discern that FFL gun dealers and Amish milk farmers will not be the only people to be targeted in such raids in the near future.
Many people pooh-pooh the worry over orders to confiscate guns or impose federal mandates to the non-compliant. As history teaches – it does not require raids and inspections of every home and citizen in the nation to achieve the desired subjugation of a people to oppressive rulers. It requires only a few high-profile examples that the regime and it’s agents mean business, and that you and your family can be detained, stripped, pillaged, terrorized and even killed without so much as a hesitation – to get the rest of society to comply and even help aid the regime in power to achieve it’s ends. Fear of what the government can do to you is a powerful motivating agent. It is why most of us file our taxes before the midnight deadline April 15th. It is why most will eventually comply with any gun restrictions and confiscation orders that the rulership is busy introducing in various state legislatures.
I want us to know and understand how such raids are conducted and what happens to you once the government targets you for whatever reason. You most likely will have no idea exactly why it is you are stopped and have guns placed at your head and those of your family while your home and property is ransacked and items confiscated. Then you discover you have no real recourse and your property now belongs to the government unless you have thousands upon thousands of dollars to attempt a futile legal case to regain all that you have lost. Your reputation forever marred and unrecoverable.
Welcome to tyranny. This is what it looks like from a first-person perspective.
While I do not know the merits of this individual case – I will take the word of a citizen over the word over anyone in government or law enforcement given the rotten fruits of lies, distortions, cover ups and wrongful deaths that they continue to rack up in this society and absolve themselves from. This person is lucky he did not have a dog, as they most likely would have killed it on the spot.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently raided one of our readers: a kitchen table FFL dealer who does everything—everything—by the book. He has, however, consistently criticized the ATF for its unconstitutional regulations and long history of extra-legal activities. This is his story.
Update to follow, after he consults with his lawyer . . .
First of all, forget about them coming to the door. They’ll intercept you on your way home from the Doctor’s office (for example), then one vehicle will come up behind you and two will block your way in front and turn on the flashing lights. They then jump out with ‘real’ assault rifles, point them at you and order your hands up, and exit the vehicle. You, being a law abiding citizen, comply. At gunpoint, they order you to assume the position against your car, handcuffs you and frisk you, and you’re directed to get into the back seat. Then the lead agent gets into the driver seat and drives your car to your driveway. You sit there with cuffed hands behind you – bleeding.
As multiple vehicles close off the street and announce over a loudspeaker for all your neighbors to remain indoors (and are prohibited from leaving), the lead agent calls your house and directs your wife to come out of the house – and sit in the front seat. She does. Then the Homeland Security Special Tactical Unit, and the county sheriff Swat Team arrive, and drive two armored cars over the curb onto the lawn, as the “Jack Booted Thugs” with machine guns, helmets, boots, camo, etc. enter and search your house.
You see a Homeland Security Helocopter circling overhead. You are asked if you have any explosives (well, several cans of black powder….) and are there any booby traps in the house. They offer to let you read the search warrant, but your hands are cuffed behind your back. The agent in your car reads it very quickly.
After the Jack Booted Thugs are through, teams arrive to search and ransack the house. After about an hour, you are released and NO CHARGES are filed. You are required to stay beyond the perimeter as they set up tables in your yard and begin to paw through and process your worldly possessions.
You finally realize that they’re going to keep an eye on you, but you go to a neighbor to make phone calls – and find a good lawyer, who arrives on site, but is kept out by the agents. The agents search one of your cars and release it to you. Hours later, knowing there is nothing you can do on site, you leave and arrange a motel for the night.
Later, about 9PM (12 hours later), you phone your house and an agent answers, then advises you they’re about to leave. You drive to your house to see four Feds in your front yard, ready to leave. They tell you they don’t know where the house key is (which you gave them), nor where your cat is. They hand you a copy of the search warrant, but fail to provide a copy of the inventory (which they give you two days later).
You examine your house. Your computers are gone along with every extra & old hard drive, all data cds, floppies, thumb drives, compact flash drives, and other SD drives for your camera. But most shocking, is that your entire gun collection, which you spent a lifetime building, is gone.
Antique guns, airguns, non-guns. Virtually everything. One antique shotgun lies broken on the floor. Papers are strewn everywhere. Once they looked at it, and didn’t want it, they just tossed it aside. Piles of paper. The house is trashed – every room. Your clothing has been ransacked. Your wife’s clothing and underwear. You don’t even know what is missing. You look around, feel sick, lock up the house and go to the motel.
You return the next day to try to start to get things back in order, but realize it will take weeks.
Later, you find out that the affidavit which justified the search warrant is sealed – and you can’t even find out why they searched and seized. A few days later, the sworn affidavit is unsealed, and you find out that the agent lied repeatedly, told half-truths, speculated about possible violations, and related his ‘suspicions’ with no basis in fact – and that the search warrant is nothing more than a gigantic fishing expedition to see what they could find . . .
