HOW AMERICA IS BECOMING A POLICE STATE

News reports that the federal Department of Homeland Security is stockpiling billions of rounds of ammunition have prompted many Americans to ask: Just who is the government preparing to go to war with?
To radio talker Mark Levin, the answer is that “our society is unraveling” and DHS is preparing for “the collapse of our financial system, the collapse of our society and the potential for widespread violence, looting, killing in the streets, because that’s what happens when an economy collapses.” Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin agrees, saying, “We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”
But all this, dire as it sounds, is just the tip of the iceberg. As WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine documents in its March issue, “HOW AMERICA IS BECOMING A POLICE STATE,” one major way Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America” is manifesting in the changing face of law enforcement – local and state, but especially federal.
The signs are everywhere:
Drones are flying overhead – not in Yemen, but here in the U.S., above your house, perhaps photographing you. The FAA anticipates 10,000 domestic drones in the next few years, and at least one police chief has publicly announced he wants to arm his drones with tear gas and rubber bullets.
Meanwhile, the Transportation Security Administration, having traumatized countless air travelers with its signature nude X-ray imaging and invasive pat-downs of ailing grandmothers and crying 3-year-old handicapped children in wheelchairs, is now expanding from airports to bus terminals and subways.
Even local police forces increasingly resemble an occupying army, especially in the big cities – thanks in part to a federal program that supplies police departments with military equipment, everything from surveillance drones to machine-gun-equipped armored personnel carriers.
Although few Americans realize it, police have already gone door to door and confiscated citizens’ legally owned firearms (in New Orleans after Katrina), and right now politicians in certain areas are trying to pass legislation to make gun confiscation official policy – but only in the event of an “emergency,” of course.
Highlights of “HOW AMERICA IS BECOMING A POLICE STATE” include:
“It’s not quite accurate to say the Obama administration is trying to disarm Americans,” said Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian. “The government is attempting to progressively disarm one segment of the population – law-abiding, private citizens – while simultaneously arming to the teeth millions of Americans who work for, and are beholden to, government at all levels. This is not exactly what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they gave us the Second Amendment.”
Kupelian added: “This issue of Whistleblower documents comprehensively, and in a balanced but no-holds-barred way, just what kind of country Americans are facing in the coming years.”
SPECIAL OFFER: For a limited time, subscribe to Whistleblower, renew your subscription or give a gift subscription for one year and you’ll get $10 off (pay $39.95 instead of the usual $49.95), plus you’ll receive two free gifts:
First, you’ll get the ultimate manual for protecting your home and your loved ones, the massive new 336-page blockbuster book by NRA leader Wayne LaPierre, “SAFE: How to Protect Yourself, Your Family and Your Home.”
If you want to take the right steps to prepare and protect the things that are most important to you – your family, your home, your financial future – then you owe it to yourself and your family to read this book.
Second, you’ll also receive one of the most eye-opening, thought-provoking DVD documentaries you’ve ever seen: “Shooting Back: The Right and Duty of Self-Defense.”
Charl Van Wyk was just an ordinary Christian man until July 25, 1993 – the day that would become known as the St. James Massacre. It was on this date that Van Wyk shot back at the terrorists who were attacking an innocent church congregation gathered in prayer, and saved many lives in the process. More than just a remarkable story of courage under fire, “Shooting Back” deals forthrightly with the consequences of his actions that day, while addressing the concerns that plague so many God-fearing people in these lawless times:
In “Shooting Back,” Van Wyk tackles these difficult questions, using the light of scripture and insights from his own experience to make the case for self-defense. Now, for the first time ever on video, Charl van Wyk tells his story. The documentary also features interviews with Gun Owners of America President Larry Pratt and a final message by WND founder Joseph Farah, who produced this presentation of WND Films.
EVEN BETTER OFFER: Subscribe, renew or give a gift subscription for two years and you’ll not only get “SAFE” and the “Shooting Back” DVD, but you’ll also get a $10 discount on the already reduced two-year rate ($74.95 instead of the usual $84.95).
These special free offers will end without notice and are good in the U.S. only.
PLEASE NOTE: When your Whistleblower subscription is due to expire, you will receive a renewal notice from us.
