I am greatly concerned about the steady erosion of the America I was born into and the polarization of society. I used to think liberals were a healthy balance to our culture and now I see what they have done to America and other cultures throughout the world. I fear we are at the doorstep of another civil war and it will be a repeat of the Weimar Republic where conservative Christian capitalist battled Socialist unionist through the streets of Germany for years.

War in the Homeland ?
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, 2.2 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. (Since this letter was published, DHS placed an order for 7,000 selective fire AR-15 rifles and 30 round magazines)
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!
Captain Terry M. Hestilow United States Army, Retired Fort Worth, Texas March 23, 2013
