Homeland Security Eyes Takeover of U.S. Elections. What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

By Rick Pearcey • August 31, 2016, 09:26 AM

Paul Bedard reports at the Washington Examiner:

Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a "critical infrastructure," giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid. . . .

Johnson also said that the big issue at hand is that there isn't a central election system since the states run elections. "There's no one federal election system. There are some 9,000 jurisdictions involved in the election process," Johnson said.

Apart from opening the door to more easily and endlessly rigged elections, putting the White House in charge of U.S. elections seems a swell idea.

But for me, it smacks of putting foxes in charge of hen house security.

History, logic, and everything you see in the daily news tells us that human freedom and dignity prefer and require a diversity of centers of power.

You can read about this wisdom in the Declaration of Independence, and it's why the Constitution divides political and governmental power in so many ways. Checks and balances, etc.

Washington solves problems by making them worse. And in return, the federal government enfeebles and infantilizes the American people.

Listen up, Washington: True diversity really is one of our strengths. Just do your job as set forth in the U.S. Constitution, consistent with Declaration norms.

That's what's needed, and that's all we ask. 

That's why the states created you, by the way. We created you. You didn't create us. It'll be better for everyone if you can keep that straight.

Washington must decrease if America is to increase.

At Least 72 Homeland Employees on Terrorist Watch List

By Rick Pearcey • December 7, 2015, 09:08 AM

Adam Kredo reports at the Washington Free Beacon:

At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also "were on the terrorist watch list."

"Lynch said he has 'very low confidence' in DHS based on its many failures over the years. For this reason, he voted in favor of recent legislation that will tighten the vetting process for any Syrian refugees applying for asylum in the United States," the Free Beacon reports.

Homeland Security Spends $450,000 on "State of the Art" Gym Memberships

By Rick Pearcey • August 8, 2014, 09:30 AM

Elizabeth Harrington reports at the Washington Free Beacon

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is spending more than $450,000 on gym memberships for TSA agents and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees who work desk jobs at a procurement office in Washington, D.C.

Last month, DHS bought gym memberships for ICE workers in its Office of Acquisition to boost their morale and "improve working conditions."

"DHS is not alone in providing gym memberships as a benefit to its employees," according to the Free Beacon. "The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is responsible for creating new technologies for the Pentagon, spent $369,000 for Gold’s Gym memberships and $654,210 for Sport and Health memberships in May."

Homeland Security Converges on Random North Carolina City

By Rick Pearcey • July 17, 2014, 09:16 AM

Eric Owens reports at the Daily Caller:

Earlier this week, the denizens of Greenville, N.C. were alarmed because several well-armed Homeland Security cops and their small fleet of SUVs abruptly appeared outside a federal bankruptcy courthouse.

Local CBS affiliate WNCT mounted something of an investigation. Turns out, the Homeland Security personnel swarmed the area . . . , they said, to make people in the community aware of the fact that they exist.

Homeland Security Will Not Deport German Christian Homeschoolers

By Rick Pearcey • March 5, 2014, 08:48 AM

Dr. Susan Berry reports at Breitbart.com:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has verbally informed the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) that the Romeike family, German homeschoolers who sought legal asylum in the United States, has been granted indefinite deferred action status, which means that the order for their removal from the United States will not be acted upon.

As Breitbart News reported Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court had denied the Romeike family’s petition for certiorari, or review. According to a press release Tuesday by HSLDA, however, news of the Supreme Court’s denial sparked "an immediate and unprecedented reaction." Fox News informed HSLDA that it recorded one million page views of the story about the Romeike family within 24 hours -- an all-time high.

"HSLDA Director of International Affairs Michael Donnelly observed that the only reason the Romeike family had to come to America was because of Germany’s repressive policy towards homeschoolers," Breitbart reports.

"Germany’s persecution of homeschooling parents continues and is one reason, I suspect, that DHS was willing to grant the family indefinite status," Donnelly said in the March 4 press statement.

"How could our country send this loving, peaceful family back to be crushed by outrageous fines, criminal prosecution, and the loss of their children?," also said in the press statement. "Today Germany is holding another family prisoner only because they wanted to leave to go to France to homeschool their children. How could we send the Romeikes back to be treated like that?"

Homeland Security Wants Same Spying Powers as NSA

By Rick Pearcey • June 18, 2013, 09:40 AM

Josh Peterson reports at The Daily Caller

Domestic spying capabilities used by the National Security Agency to collect massive amounts of data on American citizens could soon be available to the Department of Homeland Security -- a bureaucracy with the power to arrest citizens that is not subject to limitations imposed on the NSA.

Unlike the DHS, the NSA is an intelligence agency, not a domestic law enforcement agency. It cannot arrest those suspected of wrongdoing. That power of the federal government lies with agencies under the jurisdiction of the Justice Department, the Treasury, Homeland Security and other law enforcement agencies.

14 Members of Congress Demand Investigation of Obama’s Ammo Horde

By Rick Pearcey • March 22, 2013, 11:50 AM

Paul Joseph Watson writes at Infowars:

Californian Congressman Doug LaMalfa and 14 of his House peers have written a letter to the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] demanding to know why the federal agency is buying so many rounds of ammunition and whether the purchases are part of a deliberate attempt to restrict supply to the American people.

The DHS has committed to purchasing around 2 billion rounds of ammunition over the course of the last year. Many believe the purchases are exacerbating bullet shortages across the country, supplies already strained by record sales prompted as a result of the Obama administration’s gun control agenda.
