Bizarre... Obama promoted “civilian national security force” 15 years ago, now the IRS is mobilizing

Published in Blog on August 17, 2022 by Brianna Kraemer

Barack Obama was advocating for progressive policies on the campaign trail in March 2008 when he made a remark to a naive audience that skeptics would replay for years to come – without any idea what it truly meant.

Obama stated: “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Well the time has come. The civilian national security force has crept in through the disguise of the IRS.

The Inflation Reduction Act grants the IRS $80 BILLION in funding to expand and hire up to 87,000 more agents. At the same time, the agency has faced criticism this past week over a job posting that requires special agents to be 'willing to carry a firearm and use deadly force' when necessary. 

Not to mention, the agency has been collecting ammunition and firearms. From March to June of this year, the agency has purchased $700,000 worth of ammo. Earlier this summer, Representative Matt Gaetz introduced legislation to prohibit the IRS from acquiring ammunition, called the "Disarm the IRS Act."

"Call me old-fashioned, but I thought the heaviest artillery an IRS agent would need would be a calculator," Gaetz once said. "So here's the Biden plan: Disarm Americans, open the border, empty the prisons - but rest assured, they'll still collect your taxes, and they need $725,000 worth of ammunition, apparently, to get the job done."

Gaetz has also stated that the IRS has spent over $11 million on ammunition in the last decade. 

Since the implementation of the Posse Comitatus Act in 1878, the government has been prohibited from using the military in civilian matters. While exceptions exists, particularly involving the use of the National Guard in dire situations, the overall idea is that the military cannot be law enforcement over citizens. 

However, Obama's statement refutes the Act, and the expanding IRS as a defense department questions the long-term objectives of the federal government. 

Since 2008, people have been questioning Obama's statement on YouTube: “This is disconcerting. My question is, what is this force going to be specifically tasked with?” one viewer asked 14 years ago. 

The questionable, long-term, and possibly coordinated activities within the IRS bring cause for concern, but as regular citizens, it's hard to know what to do.

One thing to persevere through all the evolving chaos is an Article V Convention of States to rein in the federal government's powers for good. The power abuses are evident, the mass spending is careless, and the establishment deepens with each day they get away with their immoral, dishonest actions.

A balanced budget, term limits and power restraints are the solution, and it can all be done through the states by calling for a convention. The IRS needs to be stopped, and the way to do it is through Article V.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
