From your source.


It's biggest federal building project in D.C. area since Pentagon 68 years ago Complex to be on campus of historic buildings in long-neglected part of D.C. Project to gather more than 15,000 employees now scattered in 35 offices First new building: Coast Guard headquarters, costing about $435 million


It just smells of Big Brother, and bigger waste.

ROFLing at your seeming anger in regards to this

what kind of soldier gets angry when the enemy
conveniently makes themselves a bigger, single target by putting all their eggs in 1 basket?

what was that about If they all together had but a single neck... ?

Why not?
DHS will be the premiere instrument of oppression when the SHTF.
They gotta be selling out for something bigger.
You are looking at the new improved Gestapo headquarters.

DHS gets less than 10% what the military gets.

DHS gets 50 bil.

Israel probably gets that under the table.

I agree I'd rather see it go to embassy security if they just have to spend cash.

That is $4,999,999,751.00 more than would be spent on that asinine agency if we had anyone with an inch of spine and a half ounce of testicles in command of the budget. The $249.00 I'd happily see budgeted to DHS? According to Greyhound.com that is the going rate for 1 Greyhound bus ticket from DC to Phoenix, AZ. I think it is only fair that Janet be returned home on the taxpayer dime.

Why do we need the DHS again? My memory is a bit fuzzy these days.

How did Washington win the Revolutionary war without the DHS? How did we win WWII without it?


If you want these massive government takeovers and departments to go away you need to elect Conservatives.

Wow, 3.4 billion is too much for a building. Just a waste of money.

In comparison: The national budget here is 10 billion dollars (which includes free education (higher education, universal healthcare, government-paid pensions etc) for 1,5 million people.

This is my favorite line from that article:


"It will help us hold meetings," Secretary Janet Napolitano


So you're telling me you don't have VTC ability?

Not to say you are wrong but you are actually giving DHS $45,000,000,249.......You missed a number there.....They don't need NOR deserve 45 billion dollars to get her to AZ.....Although they would probably try for that amount....

The site today has the appearance of a sprawling college campus -- although one stuck in time. Established by Congress in 1855 as the Government Hospital for the Insane and later renamed St. Elizabeths, the campus has 62 buildings built between the 1850s and 1940.

Nomen est omen.

They aren't spending 3.4 billion USD on a building. They're spending it on a complex of buildings covering 176 acres. There are currently 62 buildings there. Ten will be demolished, 52 will be preserved because they are historic and can be renovated. An unknown number of new buildings will be built; the only one described in the article, the new USCG headquarters, will cost $435 million. They will eventually move 35 offices and 15,000 employees to the new complex.

The NSA only spent a billion on their information warehouse that can hold all the information in the world....
Is anyone out there seeing the absolute enslavement of humanity by the end of the next decade?

I mean, I do not agree with the price tag on this complex, but has nobody noticed that this ground breaking happened in 2009? This site is almost completed now, I think the Coast Guard center is all that is still under construction.

Just saying, while we were not in much better shape then, the current sequester is really of no relevance to something started and budgeted over three years ago.....
