US Army Captain: DHS Prepping for War on Americans, Must Be Disarmed

The following is United States Army Captain Terry M. Hestilow's (retired) full letter to his Texas Senator John Cornyn regarding the Department of Homeland Security's arms race, especially since they have no authority to wage war on Americans or anyone else. Hestilow, who posted the letter on Facebook, says DHS must surrender their weapons immediately to the Department of Defense.

The letter begins below:

"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!

Admirable letter. Logical, well thought out and correct in most American minds.

However, words, logic, facts, being right, have nothing to do with changing the direction of our government. Words are the tools our government uses to misdirect and delay our actions.

This letter can accomplish nothing. Only actions have a chance of working. The time for talk is gone. We all understand what is happening.

My suggestion is that if we insist on playing their game with words, we limit ourselves to just using the word, "NO!"

@anon@ 6:05 AM:
I got up this morning before 6:AM wanting to stay alive and thinking if anyone has got to die let it be somebody else, not me.
Dead is dead; wether the body be standing, kneeling or flat on its back it ain't good for anything other than worm food pig and animal food or ash for fertilizer.
Lets let the other guys die while we figure a way to stay alive to watch them die. Or if that's too much for delicate sesabilities don.t look and let em kill each other off or destroy themselves while we just go about our buisness.
Oh yes we have a buisness, enjoying life while doing no harm.

"This letter can accomplish nothing."

Well, yes and no. In general, the power elite don't care what we serfs think. On the other hand, they don't want to trigger some kind of domino effect that has broad consciousness raising aspects to it and thus engender widespread resistance to their plans.

I guarantee you that if Senator Cornyn and all the other members of congress were flooded with similar letters from more than half of their constituents we would see a massive retreat of domestic militarism.

Angry and determined demonstrations against the Vietnam War dealt TPTB a massive setback and they had to retrench which allowed enough time for the internet to be developed. Maybe Providence is giving us a leg up. We just need to earn our freedom again.

Keep in mind that defeatism is an outgrowth of the dumbing down and learned helpless protocols.

Does anyone here remember when the last time anyone of those bastards in Congress or the House listened to any of us?.... I keep being reminded of that silly movie, "MARS ATTACKS".. "WE COME IN PEACE".... while they are shooting at us... This administration and all his minions are smiling at us and consoling us while with the other hand striping away our liberties... The time for talk has past... We need to arm up and march on DC... and empty out all 3 seats of government... and start fresh.... with 1 new Constitutional Amendment .. Term Limits on Politicians... and new elections.

Great letter, but they won't listen. Get prepared if you haven't already, join a militia or start one of your own,15-20 people is enough. Get with old Viet-Nam vets that will share the basics of guerilla warfare with you an teach you how to make and deploy booby traps, and lastly, but very important, be ever watchful. Oh, and one last point, communication in your group is VERY important,one group I know of uses pigeons as a last resort communication tool.

This letter contains as many errors as it does facts. As far as I'm concerned, I don't want either one - the DHS or the Dept. of Defense - to possess these weapons. Either destroy them or turn them over to state militias.

Personally, my feelings are, all these bullets, weapons and vehicles should be returned to the Manufacturers fro full credit and re-establish the supply line to Police, Military and Civilians. This is an aweful large sum of money spent by DHS, TAX DOLLARS that could/should be used for meaningful uses!!!

Napolitano is a true enemy of America! Call and DEMAND your Congressmen defund DHS and shut her check book and mouth once and for all!

All part of their plan. Obama care will break us finantually, DHS will TRY to break us physically. Obama is an outsider who infiltrated our system, he not American......he's a scum bag.

If you wish to see the horrors that the DoD can inflict on a population, just take a look at the many warzones it has created all over the world over the last decade. Neither the DHS nor the military will provide salvation, this should be abundantly clear to those who have been paying attention.

We have yet to see just how bad the DHS can make things here in the states, but judging from their ravenous stockpiling of ammunition, logic would dictate that they are at least going to try to match the DoD's penchant for creating and spreading chaos and destruction; heaven forbid, exceed it.

Anyway, the best advice my limited intellect can give to my follow sentient life forms would be to place your faith in that which is infallible, and although an AR15 is great a tool, the stockpiling of food a wise use of unused space, home gardening a constructive use of one's time, and gold and silver very shiny, they should not be one's foundation for survival; because as many a story can attest, these things can and in some cases WILL be taken away from you, thus they are fallible.

The government will not save you, because that was NEVER their role. Some outside faction MIGHT save you, but you better believe there will be a hefty price for them doing so. No, your faith needs to be placed in that which asks nothing more than you act like respectable human beings, and not like ravenous materialistic animals.

The system is definitely collapsing, this is inevitable. The only question is will you let it take you with it, or will you let it die cold and alone?

We the People of the United States of America have the right and the ability to limit the terms of all elected officials throughout every office in our country. This being a fact, which can be accomplished by the people, for the people.

Re-elect no one from the White House to the Outhouse. We need to put aside our petty differences and do what is right for our families and our country.

Remember, nobody gets a second term in any office so they can further destroy a country and way of life I and most Americans hold dear to their heart.

I no longer think we have that "right", but if we do, it's a neutered right, for as long as the left holds a near 50% bias... there's no way to democratically change anything that serves their purpose.

Every President is just a tool of the Elite. Obama didn't create the DHS.It was created before 9-11 and was placed into Bush's hands to lay the groundwork for terrorizing the American people. 9-11 was used for just this purpose. Many of you believe the "liberal left" is to blame for our current problems. Some of you believe the "right" are the enemies. Does anyone see the connection? We are being purposely divdided. It's an old tactic that is very effective in conquering a nation. Remember, George W. Bush stated that the constitution is "just a GOD DAMN piece of paper. So who is to blame for stripping us down to our knees? Every piece of %$#@% that has been in the driver's seat for the past few decades. Conclusion? WE ARE ALL TO BLAME!

Before accomplishing any recovery from the bus we've been thrown under we need honest/true elections. Our vote has been stolen from our options are slim. Either overthrow, military coup, or compete submission is at our door step breaking the lock as we desperately try to decide wtf to do. Power needs to be restored to truly elected officials carrying out the will of their constituents.
I'm afraid it's too late. The honest vote will not return until train has finally crashed and the damage addressed. God Speed USA. .

I served two tours in the dmz during the veitnam war. we love our country and we spilled our blood for her. we will not go quietly into the night. i refuse to give my country to those who would disarm us and then systematically slaughter our loved ones. i also took the oath as the captain and i keep my oaths

Would th Provost Marshal General David Quantock have the authority & responsibility to intercede when the Constitution is in jeopardy? He is at the Marine/Army base at Quantico, VA 22135, at the Army (CID) Headquarters. OR How many copies of Captain Hestilow's letter can we send him??? Isn't there any Govt. official in higher comman?

It has nothing to do with a right to bear arms. The question for the so called leaders of the States should be raised:

Who gave them (US) the authority to do such a thing when it is expressly in opposition to their own laws? I propose it is past due for the people to give notice to rescind their consent to be governed by a foreign corporation, and DE-register their support (vote). Besides your "vote" has never counted, nor will it ever be counted. It truly is just an illusion so you will 'waive' your "inalienable" rights.

Since they have absolutely NO authority over the states (UCC § 9-307) who and how did they get "permission" to conduct business within the states without their corporate filing? And how did they usurp authority over the states who created the "united states of America to begin with?

Is it NOT TRUE that the United States is ten square miles located in the district of Columbia? And since it is limited to the letter of the law, we need to keep them there IN the district of Columbia.

Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.)

(h) [Location of United States.]

The United States is located in the District of Columbia.

19 Corpus Juris Secundum (CJS) §§883-884: Foreign Corporations-The United States government is a foreign corporation with respect to a state.

Can you NOT revoke their corporate privileges even if they DID have them?

The DHS should change their initials to DOG. Delusions of Grandeur.

Mark D'Viglio said...

This massive purchase by the DHS is really scary. The bomb proof armoured cars says a lot. Why would they need those to put down whatever scattered resistance might be expected from a new set of gun laws? It's something bigger. Probably a plan to completely disarm the entire population, along with sheriffs and police departments. The plan is bigger than most people imagine. Obama will say that once all the guns are collected, police and sheriffs won't need guns..only the DHS will need them. They want to disarm police because they did a study that told them they can't trust the police and sheriffs to reliably oppress the people. Police and sheriffs won't go for it, and since they are organized the DHS feels they heavy weapons. The reason they are buying so much ammo is because they will shut down all ammo manufacturers, for reasons of control. Once they start their plan, all ammo manufacturing will immediately they want to be sure they have all they need. Ammo will be produced in the future, but only by the government, for the they are buying up all supply right now to keep it out of our hands, and to last them until their government manufacturers get up and running. With 1.6 billion rounds, they may have enough ammo to do the whole disarming of America.

One possible scenario. Collapse the economy and the financial system shutting down credit preventing trade, transport, and farmers from planting, causing mass starvation and societal collapse and then start shooting. Before long most of us will be begging for them to haul us off to the camps!

Likely exhausting our troops in difficult wars in the Middle East was part of the create a need to wear them out. Evil does this....wear the ones out that can defend themselves and then make a run on as many as possible who can no longer defend themselves. Check out the book Past Forward to be released soon. The evil exists in both DoD leadership and DHS but primarily at the top.
