    The DHS now has what are called "Fusion Centers" where they are assimilating all information on all Americans, much like the Stasi of East Germany. And as contracts between municipal police departments and their respective municipalities expire, those contracts are being picked up by the DHS. So what you end up with are Police Departments whose patches will say "City of " but who take direction from a Federal Agency. As well Obama has been purging the military High Command of anyone who will not obey "him" over the Constitution. This is no longer America but a Globalist Police State in the making.
