The trouble that I see DHS having is that if sequestration goes into effect March 1st, Agencies under DHS like CBP, Border Patrol, will be losing about 40 percent of their pay. Meanwhile the congressmen gave themselves a 10 per cent increase on their salary.
I will see how many BPs are going to walk out the job, apply for bankruptcy, suicide( big in law enforcement), go to other agencies or stay.
With all these cuts to adjust to the new budget (or the lack of), I would like to see how well protected the border are going to be, and how eager DHS law enforcement agencies are go be willing to deal with riots, or even if they are going to have enough people to do so.
I will ask it here is this legal? if not then why does it continue? as far as a major event didn't 2012 cover all that?
Realistic Urban Training is happening all over the U.S. In Miami, Florida on January 26, 2013, Army Backhawk helicopters swooped through the city at night, firing door-guns and chasing make-believe bad guys like something out of an action movie. The fired blanks echoed off of the buildings, scaring many residents into taking cover. The local news reported excitedly about the exercise, stating it was only a drill and for residents not to be concerned. However, there was no journalistic follow up asking hard questions. Such as, who authorized an exercise without informing the public? Why conduct this type of training in a populated U.S. city and put citizens at risk? Isn’t this a violation of Posse Comitatus? No hard follow up questions were asked, and to my knowledge, have not been since.
Gamification techniques leverage people's natural desires for competition, achievement, status, self-expression, altruism, and closure.
A core strategy for gamifying is to provide rewards for players for accomplishing desired tasks. Types of rewards include points, achievement badges or levels,the filling of a progress bar, and providing the user with virtual currency.
Competition is another element of games that can be used in gamification. Making the rewards for accomplishing tasks visible to other players or providing leader boards are ways of encouraging players to compete.
Another approach to gamification is to make existing tasks feel more like games. Some techniques used in this approach include adding meaningful choice, onboarding with a tutorial, increasing challenge,and adding narrative.

If this is true, then DHS is gearing up their officers to deal with "Civil Unrest"
It seems DHS and local law enforcement is gearing up in many ways. Non-military agencies have purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammunition this year. To put that in perspective, U.S. troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month during the Iraqi war. At that rate, DHS is now supplied for a 24-year Iraq war. But DHS is an internal agency. And those rounds are spread out over multiple, internal, agencies.

5.5 million rounds per month in Iraq? So according to.the Army's own stat that it takes 225,000 rounds fired for every one enemy killed, there were 22 insurgents killed? www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk...

A 150 million sacrifice of Christian Americans would benefit someone who wants to be Madhi. A Muslim person would glory at the idea of so many dead Americans Christians sacrificed to Allah and it would most likely cause a rush of Muslim fanatics into America to finish the job of getting rid of the infidel.
Heck, even Chinese and Russians would be happy to see so many dead gun toting Americans so they can come strip this country of it resources or to take control.
The sacrifice of twenty children may have been a blood promise.
Sacrifice to whom or what - a meteor idolized by pagan Muslims.
How about hundreds of thousands of human remains drink slush boxes being stored by FEMA so the new Arachnid overlords will have ready nourishment.
Monsanto spider goat milk turns into Spider men hybrids.
Truth is often stranger than fiction.
Why train military and police to shoot pregnant women and babies - unless the only good American is a dead one.
It could be that the old devil Satan is planning on making a comeback and wants all Christians dead.
But here is a surprise vision - something enters through the back of the head and lands or stops behind the right eye which suddenly goes blind and paralysis sets in - is it the fruition of a curse uttered by a Holy Man?
Will a crack develop in the Earth's crust that runs from the Great Pyramid of Egypt to Moscow when a nuclear warhead explodes under that pyramid. Will it cause a chain reaction where most of Egypt and all of the right side of the crack consumes all the Holy Land and all her enemies.
Where that crack happens will China finally slide slowly under the ocean so the cities in Africa make sense of why the Chinese are building them. The fate of the Chinese to turn black again as they once were.
Will lands previously attached to Japan and India rise up where Dwarka can be re-inhabited by a returning Vedic Lord and Japan will glory in their newly arisen temples of old.
When the quake hits Moscow will Putin had stayed on the safe side of Russia or will he still be on the side that slides north with instant freeze out.
I don't know if I should have put this in the rant Forum or Prophecy Forum. Maybe the mods will delete it but I am glad I finally said it.

I always have to chuckle at people that think the DHS is some new agency with their own police force and powers.
Its actually just putting a bunch of pre-existing agencies all under one authority so they can better communicate and coordinate with each other.
Its not like they actually created anything that didn't exist before. Maybe a little bit, but not much.

Why shouldn't the DHS be expecting trouble this year. Look at all the civil unrest happening around the world lately. The United States is not immune to civil unrest. Be prepared is a good motto.
