DHS Troops Confiscate SUV on Behalf of EPA


Which is scarier and more tyrannical, the Department of Homeland Security or the Environmental Protection Agency? The answer – both working together:

In another example of how the Department of Homeland Security has expanded far outside the purview of its original function, six vehicles full of DHS agents were required to seize a Land Rover from a couple in Statesville, N.C. due to the fact that the vehicle allegedly violates EPA emission standards.

As part of its mission to “protect the Homeland,” the DHS has been busy seizing imported vehicles that don’t comply with safety and CO2 regulations.

Jennifer and Bill Brinkley were satisfied that their $60,000 dollar purchase of a Land Rover Defender on eBay complied with regulations because it fell into the exemption category of a vehicle 25 years or older.

However, when DHS agents turned up at the property, they compared the car’s Vehicle Identification Number to a list and immediately seized the Land Rover. The couple were not given “a chance to debate the issue.”

WBTV’s Steve Ohnesorge said DHS agents conducted “almost like a raid to get the car.”

Prior to his catastrophic election, Obama promised that he would create a “civilian national security force,” i.e., a domestic army, “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the gigantic US military. He didn’t have to start from scratch. All that was needed was to repurpose and inflate the DHS, which as the border situation indicates is no longer focused on upholding American security.
