The US Capitol Police Are Becoming America’s New Secret Stasi
The East German Stasi was the most feared, secretive, and unaccountable arm of the communist government — a secret police force. Britannica says it infiltrated “every institution of society and every aspect of daily life, including even intimate personal and familial relationships … through its official apparatus and a vast network of informants and unofficial collaborators who spied on and denounced colleagues, friends, neighbors, and even family members.”
That’s why a recent announcement by the United States Capitol Police (USCP) to move offices to American cities ought to frighten every freedom-loving American today.
On July 6, 2021, the USCP released a press release entitled “After the Attack: The Future of the U.S. Capitol Police”. Signed by Acting USCP Chief Yogananda Pittman, it got little coverage. Given the direction it outlines for the future of our nation, Americans had better wake the hell up.
To justify their plan, the USCP repeats a lie that anyone half-awake should renounce. Referring to the Jan 6th event, the press release reads, “We will never forget USCP Officers Brian Sicknick and Howie Liebengood, who died after the attack.”
Most by now, save those still clinging to fake news for their news coverage, know that a fire extinguisher-wielding Patriot didn’t kill CP Officer Brian Sicknick. Even D.C’s chief medical examiner Francisco J. Diaz determined that Sicknick “suffered two strokes and died of natural causes” days later, according to RedState. USCP Officer Howie Liebengood, on the other hand, died by suicide, or so they say, days following the red flag event. Mysteriously since then, three other Jan 6th – involved police officers have also taken their lives. That is worth investigating.
The press release also states that “[s]ince that day, our team has been working with federal law enforcement agents to track down the suspects and bring them to justice. So far more than 500 defendants face charges.” Yet, if one researches the trusted news sources of the day, a majority of the charges against said defendants are totally trumped up. Not one single death was caused by a Patriot while the murderer of Veteran Ashli Babbitt, a known Capitol Police Officer, has remained anonymous and protected.
The USCP recently announced it will be opening offices soon in San Francisco and Tampa. But, that’s just the beginning.
What We Can Expect
The USCP press release outlines their new “Critical Incident Response Plan”. It “establishes a multi-phased action plan to quickly mobilize local, state, and federal manpower, including the Department of Defense [military], to respond to planned and/or no-notice emergencies [emphasis added]…, working with Congressional [CCP-controlled Democrat] oversight and the Capitol Police Board to obtain the authority to immediately request National Guard assistance if needed without having to wait for board approval.”
This seems outrageous if not downright un-Constitutional. Given the Dem’s blatant bias shielding real criminals like BLM and Antifa while treating those involved in the Jan 6th event with the harshest possible punishment, including months of solitary confinement, for simple acts of trespassing, one can only imagine where this new law enforcement overreach will lead.
Chicagoan Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith, the spokeswoman for the National Police Association, blames the left for politicizing the suicides of Jan 6th. “Talk to the federal law enforcement officers who, night after night, were in the courthouse in Portland while Antifa set fire to it. Talk to the officer in Vegas who is paralyzed from being shot in the head by a Black Lives Matter protester. Talk to the police officers who had Molotov cocktails and bottles of urine thrown at them, and had people scream at them saying, ‘I hope your kids get raped,’” she said.
According to the press release, Tampa and San Francisco were chosen because an inordinate number of the Jan 6th Patriots (charged without due process) come from those regions. A USCP spokesman told news outlets they’d be working closely with the U.S. Attorney’s Offices in those locations, both “coincidentally” blue cities with friendly prosecutors.
It’s not hard to guess the outcome of this new strategy given comments made recently by one very liberal Tampa politician.
Rep. Kathy Castor (D-FL14) left no doubt what the left’s intentions are and her agreement with them. In an interview with WFLA Channel 8, she said “I trust that the partnerships will help bring accountability to the domestic terrorists responsible for the deadly insurrection on January 6…. Many domestic terrorists from that racist, anti-American mob already have been arrested and charged – too many from Florida…. We will identify those who funded the insurrection, and those involved in beatings, injuries, and deaths of Capitol Police officers. Ultimately, USCP will protect the country from future attacks.” Need I say more?
The Legal Basis
The real question: is this even Constitutional? Because this action is a first, it’s hard to say.
A compelling letter written by Hillsborough County GOP Chair Jim Waurishuk urges Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to halt the move pursuant to Article 1 section 8 clause 17 of the U.S. Constitution. Waurishuk, a retired Colonel in the Air Force and former NSC employee under General Michael Flynn, claims that and other legal arguments prove that the “federal government has no authority to establish any presence in a state without its permission.”
The particular clause Waurishuk cites states that “[The Congress shall have Power . . . ] to exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of Particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings.”
Per the author of the article in which Waurishuk’s letter is referenced, however, the Constitutional clause cited “does not address state permission for federal offices.” This may well end up in the Supreme Court.
The Targeting of Patriots
In the meantime, should the USCP succeed in its plan, damage may be irreversible and far-reaching. Patriots have already been heavily targeted as “Homegrown Violent Extremists” (HVEs), according to a recent Department of Homeland Security bulletin. Anyone who has complained about election fraud, CCP virus restrictions, or even the presidential transition is now officially an HVE. The implementation for rounding up a whole lot of MAGA people doesn’t seem so far-fetched anymore. Even the once conspiratorial talk of FEMA camps is sounding more possible.
In 2020 the far-left group, Demand Progress, demanded greater transparency and accountability from the USCP. They say it is the most secretive and unaccountable agency in the federal government. According to them, the USCP has less oversight than our intel agencies. They have no statutory obligation to answer record requests from the public like FOIAs or to publish reports on their activities. Even in D.C., they’re rogue, known for making arrests outside their scope within Capitol grounds with little or no interference.
If Waurishuk’s argument falls on deaf ears, expect the worst. According to the press release, the USCP plans to “pivot towards an intelligence-based protective agency”, engage in “joint training with the National Guard … riot training … shoot/don’t shoot scenarios [and] increas[e] its use of force. What could possibly go wrong?
Door-to-door forced vaccinations will be imminent. Neighbors, co-workers, and even family members will only need to file a complaint and your life will become a living hell. Trump rallies, flag-wavings, boat parades, and political protests will diminish. Make no mistake, this is a concerted plan to end our freedoms as we know them and silence half of the American population.
Saul Alinsky’s first tactic, “power isn’t only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have”, is about to be unleashed in full force. And Tampa, Florida is ground zero. As the left’s mantra goes, to them, this is war by any means necessary.
Gov. DeSantis must act swiftly and decisively to abort this mission by America’s new “secret police” also by any means necessary. Should he fail, the USCP will, aided by their “brownshirt” BLM and Antifa militant arm, have unfettered power to target Patriots, spy on us, arrest at will, and control in perpetuity. They will not stop at Tampa.
This is a perceived control that DeSantis, the Florida legislature, and all Floridians must fight with everything we’ve got. If we give in to even thinking they have that kind of power, then they will.
Contact your state legislators and Governor DeSantis while we still have the freedom to say what we think.
