The Department of Homeland Security is set to spend $80 million dollars on hiring a raft of armed guards to protect IRS and other government buildings in upstate New York during “public demonstrations” and “civil disturbances,” once again prompting concerns that the federal agency is preparing for food stamp riots, anti-tax demonstrations or some other form of domestic unrest.

According to a solicitation posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the Federal Protective Service (a unit of the DHS), is looking for a contractor to supply armed Protective Security Officers (PSOs) to guard a variety of government buildings in the region, including “IRS buildings(s) during tax season.”

“PSOs will be required to be armed and some posts may require screening of visitors using x-rays/magnetometers,” states the solicitation.

The armed guards will be used during “public demonstration(s),” as well as “civil disturbances, or other unanticipated events on an as-needed basis.”

“This acquisition is for approximately 380,000 hours of Basic Service, 20,000 hours of Temporary Additional Services and 3,500 hours of Emergency Security Services per year. Currently, there are an estimated 205 guards protecting approximately 95 posts at over 55 buildings. The estimated value of this Contract is between $75M and $80M,” states the solicitation.

Why does the DHS feel the need to blow $80 million dollars at a time of cutbacks on yet more armed guards to protect government buildings during “public demonstrations”? What is the federal agency preparing for? Food stamp riots? Anti-IRS demonstrations? Or some other form of civil disorder?

In June, it emerged that the DHS was purchasing top of the range body armor and helmets for FPS guards as part of preparations for “riot control situations.” This followed a controversial drill last year dubbed “Operation Shield,” during which FPS agents armed with semiautomatic guns were posted outside a Social Security office in Florida. The unannounced exercise centered around “detecting the presence of unauthorized persons and potentially disruptive or dangerous activities.” Residents were forced to show identification papers to the guards during the drill.

Could the increased security around IRS buildings be related to the introduction of Obamacare? The federal government has consistently denied that any fines pertaining to Obamacare non-compliance could be seized from bank accounts, despite reports last year that the IRS had hired 16,500 new agents to harass citizens who attempt to evade the new law.

As we reported earlier this year, Federal Protective Service officers were hired to guard an IRS building in St. Louis during a Tea Party protest against the federal agency’s discrimination targeting conservative groups. The FPS has previously been used to spy on protesters. In 2011, the DHS asserted that it had every right to spy on peaceful protest groups and had been using Federal Protective Service (FPS) agents to do so since at least 2006.

In March, Arkansas State Fusion Center Director Richard Davis admitted that the federal agency spies on Americans deemed to be “anti-government,” noting that the DHS concentrates on, “domestic terrorism and certain groups that are anti-government. We want to kind of take a look at that and receive that information,” so-called threats which included people, “putting political stickers in public bathrooms or participating in movements against the death penalty.” source- Info Wars

  • Homeland Security do something productive, arrest Engrineer, drag his ass off to a FEMA Camp, chopped his head off, so his mouth will stop with the insults!

    • You really are hilarious Dude, :mrgreen: It’s engineer and not engrineer. OK, I’ll sing your favorite song again. And don’t overdose on your meds again. :mrgreen:

      TROLL, TROLL, TROLL. your boat, gently down the crapper, MERILY, MERILY MERILY, MERILY, Life is but a dream. Don’t let the bed bugs bite. :mrgreen:

  • “Martial Law will soon be here… doo dah, doo dah, are you ready to die for your faith in Christ? Oh doo dah dey!”


  • OK. Tell me, please. how they know WHO puts stickers up in public restrooms? Aren’t cameras in restrooms illegal? Obama’s so paranoid he’s breaking MORE laws?! If he strengthened security outside a Social Security building in Florida that’s easy….he wants to cut off S.S. He has said so many times. The FACT that every American has been FORCED to pay for it doesn’t faze him. The FACT that politicians promised to invest OUR money, then spent it on their pork projects is immaterial to him. The FACT that millions of seniors NEED it to survive doesn’t bother him a bit! After all, he’s the pig who wrote the ACA, including the clause that refuses care to elder patients who may not recover. I hope I’m around when Ovomit is old and alone! It’s apparent the LIAR-in-Chief is planning a new project, or announcement that will anger people enough that he anticipates it may be the LAST STRAW! Enough people have been talking about “civil disobedience”, and others about a 2nd “civil war”, maybe he’s worried. We can only hope! What could be worse than the ACA, the IRS scandal, Benghazi? He may be right! Another demand from him may be more than any thinking citizen can take! Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.

  • It might look bad now, but, remember, we win in the end!
    Rev 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
    Rev 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
    Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
    Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
    Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
    Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
    Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
    Rev 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
    Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
    Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
    If we die for Him, we will come back and reign with Him–that will be our reward!

    IMHO… not just America but the whole world is on the brink of utter chaos. Especially with the blood moon tetrads next year. Something big is on the horizon.

  • #2 (no, not that!) ‘engineer’ is w/out a doubt a troll cool-aid drinking plant w/out roots & a product of the public propaganda machine who is sold out and told how to think! The writing’s is on the wall and the king’s knee’s buckled while he emptied the contents of his bowels, yes, the Word of God is true & penetrating like a two edged sword – this is not the time (for man) to boast!
    To Him, gets all the Glory – the hangmen also always die, we know Who gets the last (Alpha/Omega) Word! When the lost see Him in all His Glory, they too will lose bowel control while in total regret of who they chose to believe & serve, so sad!
    The Lord says; come, lets reason together, Jesus Is the only way!

    • Hi Wily, I see you can put more than one phrase together when you want to hurl insults. Your mommy should be so proud of you. Now, be a good little kid and leave the arguing for grown adults. Go back to your cartoons and don’t stay up too late or you won’t graduate from school. Have a nice day.
