Roscoe, Illinois. After midnight May 15th, seven people were caught trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir, one of two reservoirs supplying drinking water to the City of Boston. The two women and five men had no drivers licenses, and were from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore. The men, chemical engineers or recent college graduates, cited their scientific interests as the reason for their presence at the reservoir after midnight.
The average citizen must be shaking his head in wonderment. Seven citizens, most from the Mideast with chemical engineering expertise, are found on the premises of one of the country’s largest man-made public water supplies in the dead of night! Consider that Boston was recently the site of a bombing by Islamic terrorists at the April 15th Boston Marathon.
WZBO, CBS Boston, reported that “State Police say there were no warrants or advisories on any of the individuals and ‘there was no evidence that the seven were committing any crime beyond the trespassing.’” Was Homeland Security consulted before these seven foreign individuals were released on their own recognizance? The seven will be summonsed to court for trespassing.
Contrast this with HSA‘s rather obvious presence at Tuesday noon’s nationwide protests staged at local IRS offices. In Illinois, noon protests occurred in Chicago, Downers Grove, Rockford, Springfield, Galesburg, Bloomington, Schiller Park, and Peoria local IRS offices. Apparently, peaceful demonstrations by Americans, concerned that the nation’s tax collection agency had become politicized, was of greater concern to Homeland Security than the potential contamination of a major metropolitan water supply by foreign nationals.
The IRS rallies were in response to evidence that, although the abuse had been publicized as early as January 2012, the IRS continued demanding excessive and/or inappropriate documentation from Tea Party, limited government/low tax, 9/12 groups, and pro-life and Jewish groups through the 2012 election cycle. Several groups abandoned their pursuit of tax-exempt status, rather than complete the onerous paperwork on short deadlines, naming their contributors, and providing the IRS all their Facebook postings, lists of members, speaker topics and handout materials. An Iowa anti-abortion organization was asked to answer, “Please explain in detail the activities at these prayer meetings.”
