REPORT: Taxpayer Money For Zombie Apocalypse Training

The following clip is not a “behind the scenes” of the latest Dawn of the Dead straight-to-DVD ripoff.  It is the actual footage of a first responder seminar held by the HALO Corp. last month at the Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego.  The 5-day summit was deemed an allowable expense by DHS, permitting first responders to use federal funds for the $1,000 entrance fee and expensive hotel stay.”

Thank you for making us safe, Big Sis!

DHS spends your tax dollars teaching first responders how to stop flesh-eating ghouls.

The $7.1 billion Homeland Security Department program to make cities safer from terrorism has paid for 13 sno-cone machines in Michigan, a $98,000 underwater robot in Columbus, Ohio, an armored vehicle for a tiny New Hampshire town that uses it to patrol the annual pumpkin festival, and humorous videos that offered little valuable information for fighting real threats, according to an investigation by Sen. Tom Coburn.

“Number one is, they don’t know where they are spending the  money, and there’s no oversight to how the money is being spent,” Coburn said.

You can read Coburn’s full report here.

Coburn accuses DHS's Urban Area Security Initiative grant program of creating false sense of security, wasting money on projects unrelated to terrorism like sno-cone makers

Homeland Security is another example of Enormous Government Waste and this only serves as further proof. Our fear of Terrorism is enormously out of proportion. Like our Defense Budget it has become a Sacred Cash Cow that can also be best described as Massive Overkill. As Americans we have allowed False Promises of Security to Replace Our Constitutional Rights and what have we really ended up with? I am not a "Conspiracy Nut" and I don't believe 911 was an action of Our Government but a failure to heed ample warning. I do believe that the massive waste of Homeland Security is in part allowed because it provides a large additional structure that can have it's Purpose of "Saving Americans From Terrorism in America" quickly changed to Serve a different purpose which is to help control Social Protests Against a Government that has been to a Major Degree Corrupted by the Very Wealthy and Their Large Corporations to serve their Interests first and far before the needs of the Vast Majority of Our Countries Citizens. Valid Polls show over 70 or 80% of American Citizens Do Not Want Cuts to Social Security yet this Fact is Irrelevant to those in Power. We no longer have Journalism in American because we now have "The Corporate News Media" and Their Primary Purpose of Promoting The Corporate Agenda. It is Nothing Less Than Outrageous That Our President is Willing to Make Cuts to Social Security to Appease The Corporate Agenda and The Very Wealthy Who Continue to Demand More For Themselves and Less for Everyone Else Despite the Already Existing Enormously Wrong Distribution of Wealth In Our Country. We Have Social Security so the Elderly Do Not Live In Poverty yet tell me where and when you have seen This Definition in "The Corporate News Media"? We have a Television Channel that has Studied and Successfully Used the Tactics of Brainwashing to Promote The Corporate Agenda to the Extent they have convinced tens of millions of Americans to Vote Against Their Own Best Self Interest. And Thanks to "The Corporate News Media" and their Virtually Complete Silence about the Distortions, Lies, and even the Works of Fiction that Gives This Channel a Far Greater Degree of Credibility than it in any way deserves but has. The American "News" Media has become more of a Tool of Political Propaganda than a Source for Complete and Truthful Information. When Social Unrest does occur it has become Very Obvious that "The Corporate News Media" deliberately and intentionally Minimizes it and even Completely Ignores it. What little Coverage given does not even bother to give the cause of the Social Unrest anything more than a sentence or two such as "They are Protesting Low Wages" and other broad and vague descriptions. When Enough Americans finally come to their senses and Justifiably Create Social Protest Homeland Security is available as an additional well financed well armed method of Ending It. When Will America Wake Up, or is it Already Too Late?

I despise our politicians somewhere along the line they came to believe that OUR money is theirs to do with as they please. They steal it from us for foreign aid, welfare for corporations and people. They waste our money over and over with impunity. Some people dispute who or if this speech was given but whether it was or not isn't the point the sentiment behind it remains.

Most readers of DB should know by now that crony warren buffet pays little in taxes because of the manner in which he shelters his income (tax exempt foundations) I say since we bailed this pig out and he's always calling for higher taxes for others he should put his money where his mouth is and actually pay some taxes.

From Mike Rivero @ WRH:
"Zombie Apocalypse" is US military code-speak for an enraged population of starving citizens rising in protest against oppressive government. The phrase "Zombie Apocalypse" is used to (unsuccessfully) conceal from the public what the military are really training to do, and of course, to dehumanize the targets to make it easier for the soldiers to kill them in mass numbers. This is why Germans became "krauts", the Vietnamese were "Charlie", and the Muslims "Hadjis." What the government and military are really talking about when they say they are preparing for the "Zombie Apocalypse" is that they are preparing to murder 1/4 of the population to keep the other 3/4 obedient.

Doug is correct, however at the 1:07 mark it shows a man with an RPG, what kind of video was this?

This seminar is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard of. Where do they find the mental deficient idiots that come up with this crap?

Maybe they think the Zombie make up shows what the starving citizens will look like after repeated air strikes from drones and ground attack aircraft and being run over by armored vehicles.
