Closing Down Air Defenses

Once the pieces are positioned, a crisis is needed to finish the transition from a soft to a hard collectivist tyranny. Many assume this will be economic collapse caused by wildly excessive federal spending. But nothing dampens dissent like attacks from abroad, which unite us and make us look to the federal government for leadership. With that in mind, consider the regime’s contempt for border security:

On January 17th, 2013, Exelis Systems Corporation sent out an email to all of its employees informing them that on March 15th, 2013 all TARS Air Defense Mission Operations will permanently cease. These TARS Air Defense sites were under the control of the United States Air Force. On January 15th, 2013, the Air Force informed Exelis (the defense contractor running the TARS sites) that the TARS sites will be shut down. …

This means the southern border of the United States of America will be more vulnerable to attack from low flying aircrafts, low altitude missiles, and other infiltrations such as smuggling.

At best, this is yet another example of the federal government neglecting the fundamental duties that justify its existence even while wasting $trillions in areas outside its legitimate purview. At worst, it is further evidence that our national defenses are being deliberately eroded.

Meanwhile, the largest state sponsor of terrorism is on the verge of obtaining nuclear weapons, and Obama has nominated a Secretary of Defense who appears to have no problem with that. Five of the USA’s eight largest cities (Los Angeles, Houston, Phoenix, San Antonio, San Diego) are a short plane ride from the border of chaotic Mexico. Who needs ICBMs?

    As I’ve posted here before, The US needs to forget about the Middle East and invade Mexico. Colonize the place, teach them English, get rid of the drug dealers, pump out the oil, and provide cheap agricultural and manufacturing jobs. We can do a better job of running their country then they can. Then the Mexicans will stay in their own country and stop coming up here, and the US will have a “buffer” against more serious threats from Central and South America.

    As i have always said, one 9/11 was not nearly enough to make the American sheeple wake up. It will not be the Marxist-in-Chief and his administration, nor the elected lying crooks in congress, nor all the leftist political operatives in the MSM who will destroy this country. It will be the American people.

    As I have always said, I believe we won the election.

    So I wouldn’t blame the majority – the American people – I blame the remaining complacent and compliant (ergo complicit) American Sheeple.

    I know…semantics

    Yeah, but GOD FORBID if a middle-class white guy in a Cessna 150 accidentally strays 50 feet into a TFR tacked onto the ADIZ over the Chesapeake Bay while flying into Bay Bridge to go have a crab cake sandwich at Hemingways……..they’ll scramble the Blackhawks and the F-16s, and the WORLD AS WE KNOW IT will END………’cause this is a VERY SERIOUS MATTER and we have ZERO TOLERANCE!!!! THINK of the CHIIIIIIIIIILDREEEEEN!!!!!

    As for drugs and other contraband, invaders and terrorists, etc. coming across our borders unchecked, well, hey…..THERE’S NO MONEY IN THE BUDGET because of those mean ReThugliKKKANS, and besides, the THREAT IS OVERBLOWN and it’s really just veiled RAAAAAAAAAACISM.

    As the hysterical witch posing as Secretary Of State recently said, “Does it really matter?”

    BTW, where are we going, and why are we in a handbasket????

    While absolutely horrible, this is hardly surprising.

    After all, he promised in his campaign that he would dismantle our missile defense programs. But of course people voted for him anyway, thinking nobody would dare do something so insane. Well not in his first term, of course, he needs to keep the margin narrow enough to steal a reelection… but now it’s his second term, and you might want to take a look at some other promises he made that everyone thought, “he wouldn’t dare”.

    “A civilian national security force, just as powerful, just as well-armed, just as well-funded as the military.”

    Just what would such a “national security force” be used for? You can’t send them overseas. Something to consider.

    If you could see the future, would you climb out of that handbasket? I have my doubts, but remember the words of Leonardo da Vinci…

    “It is easier to resist at the beginning, than at the end.”

    America, you are NOT at the beginning. Trust me.

  7. F.D.R. in Hell says:

    Sadly, the Beginning was 2008.

    I think what Franklin is trying to say is, “A successful gun confiscation, leading to the planned collapse of the US economy, is the END.”

    Always the crapehanger. 🙄

    Does it sound like stuff of biblical proportions is just around the bend?
