Homeland Security Overwhelms Livingston

Posted July 12th, 2014 by Iron Mike

…and they STILL* won’t say what they were there for…?DHS Show of force 10 July

Homeland Security and local SWAT Teams staged a massive show-of-force in tiny Livingston, Illinois [pop 850] Thursday,…claiming it was “all just back-up” for a raid on a farmhouse a few miles away.

Mind you, such federal assets are NOT being used to secure our Southern Border – the one Obama won’t visit.

But all these folks and all this hardware were deployed Thursday to ‘raid a farmhouse’? Are you buying this story?

Seems some ten (10) police cars did go to a farmhouse,…but no announcement of an arrest – or of findings – has been made.

So was this overkill, – bad intelligence, – poor judgment, – or a practice run for raiding conservative bloggers?

Do you feel any safer now?   Is this the kind of operation Janet Napolitano had in mind as she was buying 1,400,000,000 rounds of small arms ammo [enough to shoot each of us 4 times]?

Did Jeh Johnson have to approve this raid?  Did he even know?

UPDATE: Sat, 12 July 2014 –  It seems all the fuss was to capture one man – Robert E. Godsey – 34 – of Alhambra – charged with distribution of child pornography.

Hmmm! I hate child pornographers just as much as Muslim terrorists; – but this raid seems to have been an excuse to exercise the boys and the toys.

If Jeh Johnson approved this overkill raid – he should be fired, – and made to pay for it out of his pocket!

    Homeland Security has become an oxymoron. They no longer provide security, they have become a wide ranging swat team, quasi army moving at the whim of Johnson and Obama. Can you imagine armored HMMVs, helicopters and advanced military equipment and technology while we are giving pink slops to our soldiers risking their lives in war zones. Our border are pourus with thousands of illegals crossing unchecked not knowing if they are so called refugees or terrorists waiting to cause catastrophic damage and death to our country. Our airways are now at risk, with no IDs being required for traveling.

    How can this happen when we, the legal law abiding citizens of the US and other citizens of the world are required to show an Approved ID or Passport to travel on any airline in the world today. Homeland Security, led by Johnson and Obama, no longer provide Security, they provide an open avenue for terrorists and illegals so they are misnamed and they need a new name or they should be outsourced to a private security firm, at less cost to the taxpayer, no pensions and benefits and more security.

    YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK!

    INCOMPETENT U.S. DHS/CUSTOMS AND BORDER PATROL PUSSIES NEED BLACKHAWK CHOPPER AND ARMORED VEHICLES TO ARREST A SINGLE CHILD PORNOGRAPHER. REAL F#CKING HEROES THEY ARE!

    THEY CAN’T SECURE THE BORDER, THOUGH…

    WHAT THEY REALLY NEED IS A FAIR FIGHT TO PUT THEM IN THEIR PLACE. IF THEY KEEP ABUSING THE CITIZENRY THEY’LL GET ONE–IN SPADES. THERE ARE MILLIONS OF US WHO KNOW HOW TO TAKE IT TO THEM.

    I still think it was a practice run to round up conservative bloggers. Maybe they’ll get a few spare parts from the lot of us.
