U.S. Military versus DHS - Battle Lines Being Drawn

Captain Terry M. Hestilow, United States Army, Retired
Capt. Hestilow has connected the dots. I can only hope that his letter represents the thoughts and feelings of many others in the commanding ranks of our military.
Dear friends, the following is a copy of my correspondence with Senator Cornyn concerning the arming of the DHS for war against the citizens of our nation.  You are each encouraged to copy and properly amend this letter to send to your own senators and members of the U.S. House.  Further, I am somewhat overwhelmed at the response to my posts leading up to this letter on this issue.  At this point almost 3,000 of you have shared my original post, I have 994 new friends requests, 61 messages, and 70 new comments to process.  Please be patient with me and pray that this window of communication remains open to all of us as we respond to this threat against our Constitution and our people.  I am awed by you, by your positive response, and your wonderful support.  We each have a role to play in standing against this present tyranny.  Part of that proper response is sending them a letter like this from YOU, and following it up to make sure it remains a "hot button" issue that must be resolved.  God bless you as you honor your oaths and your obligations as citizens of this free nation.  May we once again know honorable leadership and peace at home.  With all sincerity and respect--Resolved, Captain Terry M. Hestilow, United States Army, Retired.

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, 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 na├»ve 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!

Resolved,


Captain Terry M. Hestilow

    1. Thank- you, sir , for your integrity and for defending our constitution.I am doing all I can to do my part as a U.S. citizen. I appreciate the action you have taken. About an hour or so ago,I was sharing my heart with my husband concerning the distress our country is experiencing. I began weeping for this great land of ours and crying out to God for his divine intervention. While I am a woman of faith, I must admit I have been discouraged and feeling hopeless about he iminent threat of a war on U.S. citizens and having our constituional rights and freedoms taken from us by a tyranical government. Your posts have given me a glimmer of hope and some peace in my heart. You are a true American patriot and today you are a hero in my eyes.

    2. This man is not our President. Impeachment is not an option. This man must be tried for high crimes against our Country.

    1. 1) The nation wasn't founded on godly principles.

      2) God hears your prayers about as much as Santa gets Christmas lists.

      3) Even if god were real, prayers couldn't vote him out of office.

      You are a twit and it's your kind that is everything wrong with America.

  4. We need more Americans like this using their 1st Amendment right to spread the word of this evil agenda being plotted against the citizens of the United States of America.

Sincerely , Dave Sayen

  5. While I agree something is suspicious about the DHS activities this guy supposedly RETIRED as a CAPTAIN? Something wrong here folks you are being duped. If this guy RETIRED as a Captain in the US Army, well 20 years and only promoted 3 times? Better check your facts here because something just doesn't add up. Captains are in their late 20's to 30's and this guy is DEFINITELY older than this, he should have been at LEAST a Major unless of course, well you know.

    3. Ok, while I am in doubt about this letter, the person that wrote it COULD have in fact retired as a Captain. If he was prior Enlisted and crossed over to the Officer side, he very well could have retired as a Captain at 20 years and then some....just sayin

    4. Geeze!! You ney sayers drive me crazy. What if its fake? SO WHAT! Its a good letter, that should be sent to every Rep in Government that you can. You type of people will be the first to go when shit hits the fan. You'll sit there and say, Oh this is fake. The fact is that their is an assult on our Constituion. Oh I guess you think that is fake as well. The news agencies call our President the most powerful man in the free world. That is a bad label We The People are the most powerful people in the free world. The President is suppose to work for us. Some where along the line The Feds forgot that. They have developed a God complex and think that we work for them. Wake up!! Your asleep at the wheel. Just copy the letter and send it to whomever you can.

    5. The threat is real. What the Captain said is fact, no matter who said it. We are living under a Black Hitler & things are going to get very bad. Christian & atheist will suffer together. We need to band together & fight this douche bag in anyway we can!

    1. First off, hypocrite, I'm not a liberal, I'm an anarchist; and while i agree those pencil pushing pussies do nothing good, they don't trample on others rights quite like you do. I'm sure you're the type who sees every gun-control law as invading on your rights (yes they are) but banishing a people for their beliefs? So much for the first amendment. Would you like to set a precedent? Get rid of any of the first 10 amendments, the rest are soon to fall. I have a suggestion the next time you think of posting hate, why don't you re-check your bible, particularly the book of Matthew 7:1-7:5.

  7. GOOD LUCK MY AMERICAN FRIENDS - the more I see of what is going on in your country the saner I feel. I've been warning people of this for years - but labelled crazy, gun nut, our government would never do this to us. BUT THEY WENT AND DISARMED THE POPULATION and there was hardly a weep let alone a yell. A government can only control a disarmed population. As for DHS and the so called war on terror, this is the illusion all governments and dictators have used for hundreds of years - Create a common enemy. Now your own government is creating a new enemy - YOU THE PEOPLE !!! I'm Australian, Ex-Military, worked with government agencies - I HAVE SEEN WHAT "GRADUALISM" has done. WEAKENED US ALL WITHOUT THE PEOPLE EVEN KNOWING. Stay strong and true.

    1. By chance, are you related to Ned Kelly?
      That man in my opinion is by far one of the greatest heroes to grace this Earth.

  8. OBAMA is not my president. I am an AMERICAN I believe in our Constitution and stand with everyone else who will fight to insure it remains in tact. Our government has committed grave acts of treason and damned our country making us appear weak and disorderly. I stand with the American patriots and will defend MY country...

  9. "In January 2013, the Investigative Assistance for Violent Crimes Act of 2012 was signed into law. It gives federal law enforcement agencies the authority to assist in violent acts and shootings in public places and in mass or attempted mass killings. Furthermore, Executive Order 3365-2013 assigned the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Education the responsibilities to lead law enforcement training and develop model emergency management plans (EMPs) for schools, institutions of higher learning, and houses of worship. As a result of the recent horrific and violent shooting incidents in Aurora, Colorado, and Newtown Connecticut, the White House developed a new training initiative, which called for the Director of the FBI to implement a nationwide “active shooter” training program to assist all law enforcement agencies across the country."
