BREAKING: Obama Administration to Distribute 13,000 Armored Mine-Resistant Vehicles to Police Units Around the US

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, March 1, 2014, 10:18 PM


Welcome to Salinas, California. It’s a community of only 150,000 people and the owner of the military assault death machine.
salinas po death machine

That’s right, a city of less than a quarter million owns a rolling death machine complete with a machine gun turret on top.
And, they’re not alone.

The Obama administration is looking to distribute 13,000 armored mine-resistant vehicles to police departments around the country.
FOX 2 News in St. Louis reported:


We may soon see military in armored trucks roaming our city streets. The reason, the Pentagon is looking to drastically cut back America`s military might. One way of getting rid of expensive battlefield vehicles is by giving them to police departments.

An estimated 13,000 mine-resistant vehicles are expected to be distributed around the country. They weigh about 20-tons and get five miles per gallon.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

Has anyone in the federal leviathan or one of the recipient state agencies articulated a reason for this?  At its most innocuous one might simply see this as a back-handed way of keeping these things operational without having to spend any federal funds to do so by pushing responsibility for operational costs down to the state agencies that get these things.  I've no doubt that they'll be required to return these things to the federal leviathan upon request.

If the feds don't hand out this military stuff to local law enforcement, the terrorists win. Or something.   **nononono*

I'd be interested in seeing if there are any actual quotes or press release items that attempt to "explain" this; we could speculate 'til the cows come home - and no doubt some of that speculation would be on target - but it's such a grossly disporportional matter that I'd really like to see the actual spin on this.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
