Things Just Keep Getting Curiouser And Curiouser At DHS
Have you been noticing over the last 2 1/2 years of the buying habits of DHS (Department of Homeland Security)? I had heard about it at various times as the press releases came slowly to light. When I was over at a new Arms Supply store here in the junk bond State of Illinois, I 0verheard a conversation and decided to look into the claims tonight. Before getting to the claims, we have to go back to the 2008 campaign for the General Election.
During the campaign Candidate Obama stated the following:
Here’s what he actually said at a campaign stop in Colorado July 2, 2008:
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
We have not heard anything since then about this Civilian National Security Force, not 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012. However we have seen and heard about large purchases by the DHS and other Alphabet government agencies. DHS and OGA (other government agencies) have recently ordered 1.6 billion, that’s billion, bullets. That would be enough bullets to fight the Iraq War for 24 years or enough bullets to shoot every man, woman and child in the U.S. 5 times over. Why do they need that many bullets?
Now back to our history lesson, we go back to the Clinton Administration of the ’90s. During a particular contentious legislative session, President Clinton relented on the whole pie, and stated the way to get things done in government is to get it by incrementalism. That is you get the whole pie by going after it a piece at a time, bit by bit till you have the whole thing that you initially wanted.
Fast forward to April 2012. It was reported that DHS was putting a purchase order in for 7000 NATO personal defense weapons (PDW). That is government parlance for military assault weapons, NATO caliber 5.56 x 45 caliber. This is the same caliber of ammunition that the Gun Control clowns and Administration libs advocates taking from you, the American citizen.
Also up for purchase is 2700 up-armored vehicles. These are the same vehicles used by the military. These vehicles have a special feature-not only are they mine resistant, but they have firing ports capable of supporting .50 caliber weapons. Why does DHS have a need for this vehicle? Much less one capable of supporting .50 caliber weapons?
There are also purchase orders for 200 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point bullets. The U.S. Forest Service wants 300,000 rounds, and the National Weather Service wants 46,000 rounds of .40 caliber hollow points. The National Weather Service (NWS) needs bullets? Why? Anyone?
The Federal Government also wants 30 round magazines for their 7000 PDW they ordered. The same 30 round magazines that they do not want you and other law abiding citizens to possess. Perhaps they should use only the 10 round mags that they want all of us to use.
But wait there’s more. DHS has a keen interest in Bullet Resistant Booths to be used at unannounced checkpoints. The supplier of these booths is Shelters Direct. Here is a description of the booths: “This guard building features a standing seam hip roof, a thru-wall HVAC unit, (2) UL 752 BR Level 3 sliding doors, UL 752 Bullet Resistant Level 3 glass and a Low]E coating. Other noticeable highlights of this prefabricated steel building include metal halide security lighting, decorative window grille frames, and a “Stop & Go” light with controls,” Unannounced checkpoints? Why do these need to be unannounced? Unannounced for what?
They have also been interested in purchasing 140,000,000 packaged meals, blankets, and underwater body bags, and $1 billion worth of dehydrated food. These purchases have been noted to be cached in the New Madrid Seismic Zone or just outside of the zone-that is along the Mississippi River from Illinois to 200 miles south. Many of the cities cited as being “in need” fall within the old Confederacy as far away as North Carolina, Florida, Texas, Oklahoma. Why were these areas targeted? Perhaps because there are many citizens who own guns in these states. Just a guess.
On another note, The National Security Agency is building a massive spy center capable of recording, aggregating and analyzing every digital interaction on the planet – phones, internet, purchasing patterns, travel, and even what we say in the privacy of our own homes. A 30 year veteran of the NSA says the data mining program is so vast it will “create an Orwellian state.”
The US government, in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, has created legislation that directly targets American citizens. The Patriot Act makes it possible for anyone who is identified as attempting to subvert government legitimacy as a terrorist, and also allows for the warrantless wiretapping of everyone for any reason. Under the Patriot Act and expanded government definitions, just about anyone now qualifies as a domestic terrorist.
The National Defense Authorization Act takes the Patriot Act even further, allowing the government to detain anyone suspected of being a terrorist indefinitely and without trial – this includes American citizens living in the United States
The question that must be asked is this.
So what is the purpose and motivation behind the government’s continued efforts to stockpile so much firepower and food stocks?
What do they know that they are not sharing with the American people? What do we need to know?
It is imperative that we as private citizens need to start prepping for own survival. Those that prep ahead of time increase their odds for survival.
I need to give credit to this article for some of my facts and figures. http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/are-all-those-guns-and-ammunition-for-obamas-civilian-national-security-force_02042013
There are many other reports of areas that have been abandoned for years are suddenly alive with activity. Unusual movements of military equipment being moved from the border areas to repositioning areas in the interior of the country. Kentucky and Tennessee are seeing a lot of these activities, especially in the remote mountain areas where caves and mines are known to exist, but no one can get close enough to see what is really going on. I urge you to do your own research. I also hope I am wrong, if not I’ll be seeing most you in the detention camps.
If you do nothing else at least start to prep yourselves and your family safe and alive. Do not depend on the government to do it for you. Don’t believe me, 2 words– Hurricane Katrina.
Keep on Prepping, and if need be, better start-conelrad
