If you get your news from other sources than the mainstream media, then you may know about how government agencies are doing some pretty bizarre things. You may also know about some of the armed conflicts that have happened, but you may not know about the armed threats that have occurred that have not ended (thankfully) in the death of someone.
But that doesn’t change the fact that the militarization of non-military government agencies is scary. For example, Blacklistednews.com notes:
“The USDA has used its new military power to threaten people who grow lemon trees; force large fines on people for selling bunnies; confiscate raisins for no real reason; and ruin the livelihoods of small farmers.
“One USDA SWAT team even seized bees privately owned that were proven resistant to Monsanto’s GMO Roundup and killed all remaining Queens. This shows the incestuous relationship between crooked corporations like George Soro’s Monsanto and government agencies.
“The USDA is not alone in its abuse of power. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have recently used their swat teams to bully Americans for lobbyist interests or to punish political enemies.”
Yes, you read that right: people were threatened at gunpoint for growing lemon trees. Sounds like a legitimate use of government force, don’t you think? Wouldn’t you say that the threat from growing lemon trees is on par with the danger of terrorism attacks in major U.S. cities? You don’t? Good. That means that your head is screwed on straight, unlike the unelected government beaurocrats who enforce EPA, USDA, and BLM regulations.
Daniel Barker writes about a disturbing trend in our government agencies:
“Over the past ten years, 44 “traditionally administrative” federal agencies have spent more $71 million on military equipment, including cannon launchers, firearms and ammunition.
“As the federal government increasingly encroaches on Second Amendment freedoms, it is also arming itself to the teeth. And that’s not even mentioning the fact that law enforcement agencies are also becoming more militarized by the day.”
Unfortunately, the mainstream media isn’t even touching on this disturbing trend, and, so, our country is getting even scarier by the day, not because of a real threat of terrorism, but because of a real threat of random abuse by our own government.
