Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson threatened US sheriffs today. Johnson told the sheriffs that they will not receive federal grants they are counting on if the Republican Congress does not fund amnesty.
Sheriff Justin Smith from Larimer County Colorado posted this tonight on his Facebook page:
I received a very interesting veiled threat letter from Jeh Johnson, the Secretary of Homeland Security addressed to all police chiefs and sheriffs around the country.
His letter made it clear that if Congress didn’t send President Obama the DHS funding bill that he wanted (rubberstamping the president’s executive amnesty), local and state public safety agencies would not receive federal grants they were counting on because the president would veto the DHS funding bill.
Let me get this straight – the president believes he has the authority to nullify federal laws that don’t serve his personal agenda, but if Congress dares to exercise it’s responsibility of controlling the purse strings, he will willingly hold public safety grants hostage just to get his way?
Mr. President, you don’t have to love the Congress we elected, but you do have to respect their role as established under the Constitution -and Mr. Johnson, please show some integrity and stop with the threats. Sheriffs don’t take kindly to them.
Perhaps I’m “preaching to the choir”… however, this obscene situation goes back to Woodrow Wilson selling us out in 1913 with the forming of the illegal IRS, and the Federal Reserve; (which our founding fathers wanted no part of)
We need to get off of the “government tit”, states need to more effectively utilize the revenue from their residents, so as to be able to support local law enforcement, and other agencies. In this fashion, the Rogue Government could not blackmail us.
