Coast Guard Ordered To Stay In Port And Allow Infiltration

MIAMI, FL – Drugs, weapons, illegal aliens all are welcome under a new
directive. There is an ongoing, emergency situation with the U.S. Coast Guard, which is now an agency under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
“By directive, starting last Monday, 29 April 2013 (barring emergency calls) Coast Guard District 7,
which stretches from the Carolinas to Alabama to Florida, has been
restricted from activity. There will be no enforcement patrols of large
or small craft allowed in U.S. territorial seas, district-wide,”
according to a WDW confidential source.
This directive will mean that, of several hundred craft available,
neither the close-in enforcement operations (out to 20-nautical miles)
nor the larger, blue water enforcement craft – cutters and the like –
are actively engaged in protecting our shoreline. All such operations
have ceased; no fuel is to be used to protect the U.S. shores, at least
in District 7. All vessels would be confined to port, and personnel
would be standing around, passing time onshore. Emergency rescue and
limited air operations still continue.
Our confidential source states, “To put a perspective on this: an
average Coast Guard small boat, for example, is a light, maneuverable
outboard-equipped craft capable of quickly answering calls for
detaining, boarding and inspecting vessels close to shore. They look for
drugs, human trafficking, and weapons – including nuclear devices –
which, incidentally when found are disarmed or turned over to the U.S.
Navy bomb disposal units.”
Such a boat might interdict 50 craft per watch, or shift. That’s
hundreds of boarding’s, scores of criminals/terrorists, and tons of
contraband or worse – every watch, of every day, over thousands of miles
of U.S. coastline – that are not happening. Will Congress query the other Coast Guard operational
districts, perhaps even including our lakes and river ways, to see if
the same directive applies?
What’s more: Jacksonville, Florida is homeport to three of the U.S.
Navy’s incredibly powerful nuclear submarines, as well as many surface
Our source notes, “Until this week, (following the devastatingly
successful small boat attack on the defenseless U.S.S. Cole), a Coast
Guard small craft escort was provided to all such important Navy assets
as they made their way in and out of the port of Jacksonville. As of
Monday, this escort is no longer provided!”
