70 Militarized Federal Agencies & A Standoff In Nevada Later, US Tyranny At All-Time High

It has been one of the major untold stories of the Barack Obama presidency.

The US federal government has militarized more than 70 agencies, from the post office to park rangers. Even the Social Security office and the International Revenue Service are a part of the shocking trend which should raise red flags for all Americans or anyone living in the US.

Since 2009 The Dollar Vigilante Blog has brought you story after story covering federal purchases of hollow-point ammunition, firearms, even tanks for federal agencies like the US Postal Service and Social Security.

In 2008 Barack Obama promised to create a private civilian army as strong and well-funded as the military. This is now the reality.

“It’s one of the untold stories about government,” said former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson. “People don’t grasp the size and the scope of these entities and their law enforcement arms.”

The harsh truth is that the US taxpayers have funded the militarization of federal agencies…including the Environmental Protection Agency! Here’s a partial list of the militarized agencies:

  • The U.S. Department of Education
  • The Bureau of Land Management (200 uniformed law enforcement rangers and 70 special agents)
  • The U.S. Department of the Interior
  • The U.S. Postal Inspection Service (with an armed uniformed division of 1.000)
  • The National Park Service (made up of NPS protection park rangers and U.S. Park Police officers that operate independently)
  • The Environmental Protection Agency (200 special agents)
  • The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (224 special agents)
  • The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.


It’s no question that the entirety of the US federal government has been militarized, quite a pricey operation for a country trillions of dollars in debt…it’s just the way it is. Every day in the US you probably drive by an unmarked federal government car that is armed to the teeth, you might just not notice.

Estimates posit that the US has 25,000 sworn law enforcement officers in non-law enforcement agencies. According to the US Office of Personnel Management, and the Wall Street Journal in 2011, 3,812 criminal investigators are working in areas other than the US departments of Treasury, Justice, Defense and Homeland Security.

These law enforcement agents are not sitting idly by. Do you remember Waco? It was there where 76 people were killed over their religious beliefs and wanting to home school their children.


The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County, Nevada ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, snipers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Just last week they began seizing cattle found grazing on public lands…the BLM argued it was all to save a desert tortoise…Here’s the standoff:

“No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans,” said Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval after a standoff at the Bundy ranch.

The so-called “range war” involves a 600,000-acre area called Gold Butte near the Utah border. Bundy, whose family has lived in the area for more than 140 years ago, having built much of the infrastructure in the area, claims an inherent right to graze the area and sees the conflict as a states’ rights issue. In short, he is refusing to acknowledge federal authority in Nevada. A dangerous position in an enslaved country.

“Mr. Bundy has been in trespass on public lands for more than 20 years,” BLM spokeswoman Kirsten Cannon said, adding that he owes the federal government some $1.1 million in unpaid grazing fees. So far the operation to remove the cattle has cost the US taxpayers $3,000,000, no small sum. Bundy stopped paying grazing fees in 1993. He said he did not need to do so because his Mormon ancestors worked the land since the 1880s.

“We own this land,” he said, and not the federal government. He is willing to pay grazing fees but only to Clark County, not BLM.

“Years ago, I used to have 52 neighboring ranchers,” he said. “I’m the last man standing. How come? Because BLM regulated these people off the land and out of business.”
