UPDATE 02Nov2012: DHS Takeover: Newly Released DHS Manual Reveals Advanced Surveillance and Tactical Network(Intelhub)- When the Department of Homeland Security was brought into existence the general population didn’t really know what to expect, they were never really told, and most of them didn’t care all that much to begin with.
The people who pointed out that this organization could be a threat to privacy and liberty were marginalized and ignored, and here we are, over a decade later, and homeland security has grown into one of the most powerful and complex intelligence agencies in the world.
Last month, Cryptome published a brochure that featured some commercial services that DHS offers to smaller government organizations as well private security and military firms.
These commercial services are referred to as “intelligence products” in the manual, and, looking through the full brochure, you can see the vast capabilities that the DHS has in terms of surveillance and paramilitary services.

Independent media organization Public Intelligence went through the documents in detail and concluded that:
“The brochure describes more than fifty intelligence product lines from seven DHS components including the U.S. Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection and the Secret Service.This brochure is not intended for the average person, rather, it is something that ends up on a high level bureaucrat’s desk. Many of the products and services offered within are very poorly described because they require top-level clearance to even order.
The classifications of the products range from unclassified to Top Secret with more than thirty product lines being produced with classified material.”
Examples of the types of products the DHS is currently offering include Roll Call Releases, the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis Snapshot Series, and the Joint Intelligence Bulletin.
In their report, Public Intelligence also noted that the brochure includes things that many might not even know exist or know that they are components of homeland security.
The brochure describes dozens of intelligence products from parts of the government that you may not have known were components of DHS.As you continue to read through the document ,you will find things like deportation, background checks, military services, spy services, surveillance, and other intelligence initiatives.
For example, the U.S. Coast Guard Intelligence Coordination Center produces thirteen separate intelligence product lines, some of which are released daily. U.S. Customs and Border Protection and DHS OIA each produce twelve separate intelligence product lines.
The Transportation Security Administration and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services each produce an assortment of products, from colorful posters to “fast-paced” intelligence videos designed to inform stakeholders of “recent intelligence reporting, terrorism trends, and terrorist incidents.”
With these sorts of advanced tactics and services being offered to other organizations, one can only imagine what they are doing behind the scenes and off the record. This brochure also shows us how many different government organizations are now tightly affiliated with DHS as well as the overall growth of homeland security during the last ten years.
When you couple the fact that homeland security has become so overreaching that they offer over 50 different intelligence “products”, including numerous intelligence reports that label everyday Americans as terrorists, with the fact that they have also ordered at least 1.5 billion rounds of ammunition, a clear picture emerges.
In the last few years, the Department of Homeland Security has went on a literal ammunition buying spree, purchasing over a billion and a half rounds of ammunitionalongside other police state weapons such as armored checkpoints and high power sound cannons.
A report published on theintelhub.com in July of this year documented the buildup and its connections to what DHS must believe is an impending civil war.
“This astonishing amount of purchased ammunition has led many to speculate and believe that homeland security is actively preparing for what they believe will be a bloody and extremely violent American uprising and or civil war.
When you couple this large-scale buildup of ammo with bulletproof checkpoints, law enforcement bulletins labeling everyday Americans as possible terrorists, and a series of videos that painted middle class Americans as the new Al Qaeda, you can clearly see that at least portions of DHS are planning for some sort of violent confrontation with the American people.”
Sadly, many Americans believe that the DHS is either completely good or simply not powerful enough to takeover the country.
Obviously both those claims are complete hogwash. An agency that was actually for the people would not be ordering over a billion rounds of ammo to be used inside the country or creating videos that portray everyday Americans as possible terrorists.
And, as highlighted above, homeland security has grown so huge that they now have intelligence brochures that include dozens of “products” to further push fear and propaganda onto state and local law enforcement.
We the people must continue to expose these tyrannical actions and purchases with the hope that the masses will finally take notice and demand change.
