dhs green agentsThe Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the agency that was tasked to keep us safe after 9/11, has announced that their newest mandate will be going after those dangerous Eco-terrorists.

Late last week it was announced that DHS was creating an environmental justice unit to combat environmental inequities. According to DHS their new mandate is inline with their core mission of creating a homeland that’s “safe and secure, resilient against terrorism and other hazards, and where American interests and aspirations and the American way of life can thrive.”

They go on to say in their “Environmental Justice Strategy“:

In seeking to fulfill this vision, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) aspires to avoid burdening minority and low-income populations with a disproportionate share of any adverse human health or environmental risks associated with our efforts to secure the Nation. DHS joins with other departments and agencies to appropriately include environmental justice practices in our larger mission efforts involving federal law enforcement and emergency response activities.

Wow,  and we thought they only fought terrorists! I bet you feel much safer!

According to the Department of Homeland Security, almost every agency in the government has been tasked to promote environmental justice. These agencies will work in partnership with local and state governments to solve environmental problems and promote environmental justice. But when you look at recent government served eco-justice, I think the American public should be very concerned about this new green police unit.

After all, these are the same people who recently used the EPA to kick a couple off their own land in Priest Lake, Idaho.

Last year we brought you the story of Chantell and Mike Sackett, a couple who is fighting the federal governments takeover of their land.Without judicial hearings or notice, the EPA claimed that the Sacketts property sat on environmentally protected wetlands and ordered them to return the land to its native condition or face enormous fines. The EPA then demanded payments of over a quarter of a million dollars to “request” permission from the U.S. government to build on their own land.

And let’s not forget the Government officials in Los Angeles County who are using “nuisance abatement teams” to intimidate people into giving up their land.

Last year we reported on Los Angeles County officials who were trying to make it illegal for people to live off the grid.  From threatening families with jail time for not hooking into the grid, to fining people until they were forced to move, families in the southwestern deserts of Los Angeles County were literally being terrorized by their government.

From the Chicken Man of Roswell losing his land and committing suicide, to the small family farmers in Michigan who are facing felony charges for raising pigs, the governments green police units have been wreaking havoc throughout the country. Now that DHS has announced the formation of its Environmental Justice Unit, one can only wonder what these bureaucrats have in store for America.

    Amazing what these criminals are allowed to get away with in this country. Our constitution is being shredded before our eyes and the destruction of our country is coming one mandate and one regulation at a time.

  2. JoePrepper says:

    Only a matter of time now before they come for us all. Where is the Congress? Where are the Courts? Where are the local sheriffs? Who will stand up and say enough is enough?

    The Republic is falling and not one representative cares enough to do something.

    • dave says:

      the the Congress? the Courts? the local sheriffs?

      Why they are laying back taking their kickbacks and payoffs too look the other way where else…

    • James says:

      Ron Paul is…

      • James says:

        …trying to do something about it all (not taking payouts)

    • Just Sayin' says:

      I know why Congress, Courts, and local Sheriffs are not helping American citizens out. Its what I have dubbed the BACKYARD SYNDROME. You know, the whole attitude that “If its not in my backyard, I could care less.” Doesn’t that adequately describe how Americans help each other out? If its not affecting you personally (YOUR BACKYARD), then why should I care? Sad, but that’s what’s really at play. Man’s heart has hardened to his neighbors. Man is empty of empathy and compassion for his neighbor. If there’s nothing in it for the person, they could care less anymore. So very sad.

    yuhhhhhhhhhhhhh how do we know they arn’t hacking into this site and gonna go after those folks that post a negative thought?….What happened to truth and justice for all?…what happened to equal rights for the rich or the poor…who was it said give me liberty or give me death..Thomas Paine.. yah even back then..now they have technology..there is no safe harbor..

      Truth and Justice ?? Obama is wiping his tail end with it

    • Anonymous Citizen of the true United States of America says:

      Actually, it was Patrick Henry that said “Give me liberty or give me death.” Either way, our founding fathers are probably rolling in their graves and crying because their fight has been in vain if we do not do something about this. The 3 branches of government, military and police force should all be ashamed of what they have done to this country. What did happen to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? When these people take oaths into office, did they think it was just something of tradition and didn’t have a meaning? An oath is a vow. They all took vows to uphold what the Bill of Rights, the Constitution of the United States and the Declaration of Independence states. For anyone to limit or abolish our rights as citizens need to be impeached, indicted and sent to prison for treason and never let out. Enough is enough. I do not forgive those of corruption and I will not forget what they have done.

    This has nothing to the article, but something happened to me twice in the last wk I wanted to share.
    I purchased a shotgun the other day from a sporting goods store (chain store). The dept manager wanted to know why I bought it and what was I going to hunt with it. It was a home defense shotgun and looks just what it is. The same manager asked me the same question when I was in there last thursday. Is this related to the article described on this site re: stores being asked to ask questions and relate the answers to the federal govt? I felt intimidated since the guy was serious.

    • Anonymous (Probably not) says:

      But from s gun store. The people who work at a chain store are just there for the job and probably are not as ‘in-the-know’ as a small Gun store owner who is more likely to side with Patriots. I went into a small store the other day and the owner starting ripping into the Government.

      • Anonymous (Probably Not) says:

        Buy from a gun store I meant.

      • jj says:

        Well your first mistake is buying any gun from a store were its going to have a paper trail and be traceable. Now the gestapo will come knocking at your door some night real soon wanting it. Oh wait there wont even be a knock. Just a big crash at the front door as the ram it in. just before they toss a stun grenade in the room. Then shoot you and then yell “all clear” it was just a remolt control in his hands. Then they will just report that they had to kill a gun nut that was “stock piling weapons” Some one would have to be crazy or retarded to want to go get them selves on a armed list with the government in the perilous times were in right now and our goverment acting like rabid dogs foaming at he mouth for an excuse to kill us all.

    • SovereignPerson says:

      Q: “Why are you buying this shotgun?”
      A: “Why do you buy underwear, sir?”
      Q: “What do you plan to hunt with it?”
      A: “Be vaaaa-wee quiet….I’m hunting wabbits…and ty-wants.”

  5. A concerned citizen says:

    Here we go folks. This is the kind of thing all the movies have warned us about. “Aeon Flux,” “Equilibrium,” V for Vendetta,” “The Hunger Games,” etc. These dystopian future movies all seem to have had eerily “coming true” predictions of the future. Our civil and constitutional rights are slowly shaking their death rattles. And despite what some of you think, with the polititians in office currently, there is nothing we can do about it. Its just a matter of time before we cease to be the “United States of America,” and become the “Great American Empire.” How long before it comes, is just a matter of time.

    Remember your History!! Boston, MA under Marshal Law from the Britts!! Then the uprising!! If this election doesn’t bring change , I fear we will have another Cival WAr… It’s in most Americans DNA to be free!! The ones who took a chance to come to this Nation for freedom and opportunity!!

  7. Shannon says:

    I feel the ONE definite power the federal government should be granted is environmental protection. There are many functions a federal government might and does serve, but of all, regulating and enforcing environment laws seems t appropriate. The American people and American corporations have repeatedly demonstrated they will not voluntarily protect the ecosystem on which everyone is dependent. We have a POS governor in Ohio, Kasich, who just sold our state parks to frackers. They will be clear cutting to build roads and clear cutting to drop wells, then injecting toxic “water” into the ground. PLEASE bring on the GREEN POLICE and protect us against rich greedy fuckers/frackers like Kasich and his gas and oil buddies. Like I said, if I could pick only ONE thing for which I would grant federal authority, it’s environmental regulation. I don’t think they do enough of it.

      Well put.

  8. Bill says:

    For years I worked for the old DOJ Border Patrol and Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). I was just a few years short of retiring when Bush created the DHS which absorbed the Border Patrol and INS into the hideous Customs and Border Protection (CBP) department.

    CBP is likely the most horrible agency in the US Government, even behind HUD.

    On the day I retired, I went to my congressman to ask that he introduce a bill to abolish the DHS and all its bastard children. His aid treated me as a nut and got rid of me as fast as possible.

    Recently I wrote that congressman and asked him to furnish me the reason why DHS was ordering 450 million rounds of hp pistol ammo and 175 million rounds of rifle ammo, (over five years). I never got an answer.

    From this article and others, we can see that the true mission of DHS is to become like the East German Stasi whose mission was internal suppression.

    we need a real revolution

  10. I remember a book that I read in the late 50’s or early 60’s. The title,”1984″. All about a complete government take over of the USA. Me thinks that we may be coming ever closer to the message of that book. We have all the makeings of this book of fiction.

  11. David Foote says:

    not to—GO THERE—-;)—but if any of you have ever read the “Left Behind ” series, you’d understand this is all going pretty much as biblical prophecy —predicted!—just sayin ;)

  12. Mike says:

    You people are idiots. No one is coming to get you. Sit on your couch, flip your TV channel, turn the page of your bible, whatever it is that you do that keeps you sedated and SHUT THE FUCK UP.

    • lateToTheParty says:

      Really Mike? Really? Over and over again previously non-existent SWAT teams are doing no-knock warrants for minor drug crimes and killing old men and women ‘on mistake’ and getting away with almost no punishment. Over and over they f__k up and just say “sorry, colateral damage.” Our esteemed POTUS is waging illegal wars by UAE/Drone and killing 2 to 3x more civilians than actual targets. No public and legal court is allowed to over see the program at all based on ‘National Security.”
      Really?
      Our Attorney General is passing illegal weapons to Mexican cartels and lying to Congress. Addle brained Congresswomen are banging the drum for banning a type of rifle that doesn’t exist and in the process scooping up as many other firearms as she can. Our National Debt is somewhere between $1 Trillion and $40 Trillion dollars and the politicians are crying over a tiny sequester? Inflation controlled by the illegal Fed’ is eating up more and more of your paycheck: the prices are going up slowly, but the packages are shrinking even faster. Over 1/2 of the country is either part-time or out of work. More than 40+ Million people are on EBT/Food Stamps; 15%+ of our population. Ask the gun-grabbers if just ‘Assault Rifles’ are all that need to be banned to ‘Save America’, it isn’t.

      Really?
      In Chicago, real cops are posing as fake cops robbing and killing citizens. Lat year, 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammo, a large portion of it hollow-point, NOT practice ammo is on order for a department that didn’t exist 12 years ago. It’s been noted that 1+ billion rounds is way more than the military has spent in the past 12 year.

      Really?
      Heart of the matter, it isn’t paranoia when they are actually out to get you.

    • Alan says:

      I dont think latetotheparty got the irony.
      Well said! I needed a laugh.

  13. InvictusLux says:

    Oh the irony. The DHS has just purchased or entered into contract to purchase 1.5 BILLION rounds of TOXIC HEAVY METAL deadly .40 SW hollow point ammo. It would seem inclined to grant itself exceptions from environmental impacts arising from discharging so much toxic lead into the atmosphere (more than all old standard leaded gasoline ever did) if it can recycle the natural food people back to fertilizer for daring to challenge their authority.

  14. WhatsUpGuys says:

    looks like the government isn’t as a green as the dollar anymore :P

    Sharpen your axes, load you guns, it’s time to fight.
