Representative ‘concerned’ about DHS ammo, tank purchases

ALERT: Congressman ‘concerned’ about DHS stockpiling ammunition, purchasing tanks. Take Action: Demand Congress to DEFUND and DISMANTLE the police state!

Conservative American,

It isn’t just the people who are concerned about the increasing militarization of the Department of Homeland Security: lawmakers are concerned too.

Speaking at a Tea Party Rally in Whippany, New Jersey, Representative Leonard Lance said he is “concerned” about the DHS’ stockpiling of ammo and heavily-armored vehicles for domestic use.

The New Jersey Rep. state he “would like a full explanation” from DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. He said, “Congress has a responsibility to ask Secretary Napolitano as to exactly why these purchases have occurred.”

Rep. Lance concluded his statement on the DHS, saying: “I think we need to make sure we continue to live in a country based on freedom – a country based on individual rights – and I hope that we in Congress get the answers to these questions.”


(Watch the video here)

While Rep. Lance’ statement stands to show that lawmakers are on our side, asking the DHS to explain its actions is not enough – what is needed is a wholesale change in the way Homeland Security does business!

The good news is that we can force this change by demanding our elected servants to investigate and defund the DHS police state!

Some of our Nation’s founders rightly warned against “standing armies,” having the memory of King George III’s continental troops and their tyranny fresh in their minds.

It was James Madison who said that, “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”

Madison is being proven correct today; his statement rings true in regards to Obama’s Department of Homeland Security.

Would the Great Virginian Founder have guessed that, in addition to an Army and Navy, the U.S. President would wield his very own domestic security force?

The fact is, Obama and Janet Napolitano’s DHS is becoming more and more militarized. In its most recent move, Homeland Security bought nearly three-thousand fifteen-ton tanks!

That’s right; the DHS just purchased 2,717 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles — or MRAPs – which they have retrofitted to operate American streets.

These “light tanks” are more than capable of withstanding major combat.

Navistar Defense, the company that builds MRAP vehicles, describes these heavily armored vehicles as able to “withstand ballistic arms fire, mine blasts, IEDs, and other emerging threats.”

The question is this: What on earth is this ever-growing DHS expecting?

They are literally preparing for war.

(See the DHS’s video release on their recent purchases here)
Remember, this same department also possesses of over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition!

Andrew Malcom notes in his piece at Investors that ammunition in this amount could’ve serviced the government’s peak military involvement in Iraq – when 5.5 million rounds were fired per month – for twenty-four years!

Malcom adds:

“But DHS has been silent about its need for numerous orders of bullets in the multiple millions. Indeed, Examiner writer Ryan Keller points out Janet Napolitano’s agency illegally redacted information from some ammunition solicitation forms following media inquiries.

According to one estimate, just since last spring DHS has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm. That’s sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times. Including illegal immigrants.”

(For DHS ammunition solicitations see here, here, here, and here.)

Sarah Palin, not one to be taken for a conspiracy theorist, believes that the Executive Branch is accumulating rounds in order to quell civil unrest that she believes will result from economic collapse based on our unsustainable national debt.

Palin wrote on her Facebook page: “Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”

Congress must prevent the Executive Branch from expanding its personal military – one that is literally capable of waging war on Americans – and defund these out-of-control, unconstitutional DHS purchases and programs!

Obama’s DHS has been stockpiling weapons and ammunition – hollow-points no less – for what purpose? Remember, Homeland Security is placing these orders, not the Department of Defense! In fact, the DHS just recently requested an additional 7,000 “personal defense weapons.”

Is Obama’s “civilian military” being assembled under our noses – the one he hinted at during his 2008 campaign when he said,

“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.”

(Note: The defense budget at the time of this statement was $439 billion; to keep the “civilian” force “just as well-funded” would require an additional $438 billion.)

Georgia’s Rep. Paul Broun says that Obama’s “civilian military force” is:

“totally against freedom, it’s not in the best interest of the American people … [it's] exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany, it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did. In fact, every fascist dictatorship [had] established a national police force or national security force …As a peace-loving, freedom-loving American who believes in the Constitution as our founding fathers meant it to be, I’m just extremely fearful of this kind of mentality.”

So far as one can tell, Rep. Broun has been proven absolutely correct.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Jim Garrow told Ben Swann in an interview that the Obama Administration, right now, is dispelling military officers that aren’t willing to fire on American citizens!


(Click here to watch the full interview.)
Garrow said, “… the Obama Administration is in fact pushing the military into doing that that are a breach of the Constitution and a breach of the Second Amendment.”

Since Obama took office, military training exercises in public locations have not been uncommon – in fact, they are described as “routine.”

Just last month, for example, black helicopters were “buzzing around” Miami. Their purpose? Police told the Miami Herald:

“This … routine training conducted by military personnel [is] designed to ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirement.”

In case that isn’t scary enough, read this comment from the Examiner:

“Nevertheless, the sight of soldiers rappelling onto rooftops and the sound of gunfire have many concerned.

At one point, a photographer in Miami captured video of a military helicopter firing its machine guns as it flew over an area freeway. The chopper was firing blanks, but an artist visiting the city apparently didn’t know that.

‘I heard the machine gun fire and then I hit the deck…I didn’t know what to expect, and it was one of the loudest things I’d ever heard,’ Josh Epperson said.”

While Obama’s DHS is loading-up on ammunition – enough rounds to plug every American about six-times – and buying “assault weapons” – the very kinds that gun-grabbers are trying to remove from the hands of Americans – many Congressmen remain sitting on their hands!

When will Congress stand-up and fight for the people they claim to represent?

When will they flex their muscles and check the power of the overgrown Executive Branch?

Congressional action is long overdue and things are only getting worse… action is needed now! They must take action and defund Obama’s police state!

In the Virginia Ratifying Convention of 1778, George Mason identified one of King George III’s tactics to control the colonists: disarmament.

Mason said:

“Forty years ago, when the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually …”

Our founders knew well that big government always prefers to rule by disarmament, because an unarmed populace – like Mason rightly noted – is an “enslaved” one.

In addition to providing specifications for an army to be raised for the defense of the States’ freedom (see: Article I, Section 8, Clause 12); the Second Amendment to the Constitution established “the right to keep and bear arms.” Thus, the Constitutional provision for Congress to create Armed Forces is treated as separate from the individual’s right to hold his own arms. In other words, the Second Amendment was not adopted to establish rights for an army; no, it was adopted to codify the natural, individual right to self-defense and as a block against tyranny.

On January 16 – just over one month ago – Barack Obama made a declaration in front of the nation in opposition to this basic, constitutional right.

His nearly thirty-minute address on “curbing gun violence” was an assault on the Second Amendment.

Despite his oath of office – which he recently recited for a second time – where he placed his hand on the Bible and proclaimed that he will, to the best of his ability, “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” – Obama has worked against the Constitution in the name of defending it.

Though many of his executive actions urged Congress to take action – regardless of the fact the not one of the twenty-three are in the proper role of the general government – Barack Obama has stood against the People’s right to keep and bear arms.

Obama wants a disarmed public, despite his claims that he supports the Second Amendment.

Let’s be clear: Obama wants to be in full control. Gun-owning, self-sufficient Americans are the very people that stand as a threat to him and his Big Government agenda. He hates individuals strong-enough to bear arms and care for themselves and their families.

Simply, Obama wants a nation of sheep.

But Congress – the People’s representatives – must act on our behalf and stop his attack on gun ownership and dismantle his police state completely!

Obama just added another weapon to his arsenal against American citizens – the “Interagency Working Group to Counter Online Radicalization to Violence.”

While the agency’s high-sounding title may sound admirable, it only takes one scratch on its surface to prove otherwise. The key is in the questions: Who is does the agency target? Who are the so-called “radicals”?

Seeing that White House website describes the group essentially as a digital counterterrorism police force – able to “investigate and prosecute” – it isn’t striking to see groups like al-Qa’ida listed as targets. However, what is striking is the agency’s listing of “sovereign citizens” among legitimate terrorist organizations.

That’s right; Obama’s new “digital cops” are directed to take action against so-called “extremists” who “believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or ‘sovereign’ from the United States.”

These are Americans he is after!

Under this criterion, our founding fathers would today be considered enemies of the state, and their Declaration of Independence called a “terrorist” manifesto!

It looks like West Point’s junk-study that essentially declares war on patriotism is paying off…

How many more bricks will Congress allow the Dictator-in-Chief Barack Obama to lay in his building of the American Police State? Further, how many more Americans will be arrested, imprisoned, or added to Barack Obama’s personal kill list?

We must tell Congress that enough is enough! They must completely defund Obama’s gestapo-type agencies now!

The United States as “the land of the free” is swiftly becoming fiction and Obama’s “fundamentally transformed America” is becoming reality.

While it is true that all branches of government have encroached upon our God-given freedoms – the Congress and the Courts both playing a part – America’s overgrown Executive is chiefly to blame.

That’s right; the Constitution and the Rule of Law have been flipped on their head by Barack Obama and his Administration through executive orders, memoranda, and other “emergency” actions.

In 2013 alone we have seen Obama’s full-blown attack on the People’s Second Amendment, essentially re-writing it to read “the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed … unless one works for the government.”

In Obama’s “fundamentally transformed America,” Americans themselves are targeted by the police and the military.

How much longer will Congress – a separate, but equal power – allow the Constitution and the Rule of Law be trampled by Obama and his hired men?

Barack Obama has been and is the most dangerous, reckless president in our entire nation’s history and it is time that upright members of Congress stop him!

The House and the Senate must take action against Obama’s dictatorship by fully defunding and dismantling his police state programs!

Janet Napolitano explained the purchase of 7,000 fully automatic (as in machine gun) M-16's as being "Defensive" weapons, yet considers citizen's semi-automatic AR-15's to be "assault" weapons. All we get is "spin" from the bureaucrats. We no longer have a government Of the People. We are just pawns for the Big Money interests of the CFR, the Tri-Laterals, and the Bilderbergers. There are a few more groups that Americans never heard of, so I won't bother mentioning them. Skull & Bone associates are one of the never heard of groups.

TRUTH REQUEST: I just saw on Fox news' "Special Report" program where Senator Tom Coburn (R – OK) checked into the DHS purchase of ammo. He didn't mention anything about hollow-points or calibers. He said DHS told him their recent purchases have actually been LESS than in previous years, and a screen-graphic indicating DHS ammo purchases in 2010 of 148 million (million, not billion) shows plainly that they're saying DHS has bought less than that figure, rather than the 1.6 billion I've been reading about. It was said that 1.6 billion was the contract ceiling (I guess that means the most they CAN purchase) and that it exists in order to keep prices down but THE NEWSCAST PLAINLY INDICATED THAT DHS PURCHASES LATELY HAVE BEEN LESS THAN 148-MILLION, NOT ANYWHERE CLOSE TO 1.6 BILLION. Sen. Coburn said he felt ok with what he'd learned from DHS. At this point I don't have time to go digging thru government websites trying to prove or disprove this information. I hope someone does, though, and that other congresspeople will receive responses to their inquiries (not sure why Sen. Coburn was able to get a reply and the "13 members of Congress" that also sent inquiries didn't) so we can clear this up. It would be a load off my mind if it was true. While I love being able to show tyrannical government and gun-grabbers for what they are, I'm not interested in doing it falsely. I want the truth.

This is a petition I began because of the ammunition shortage in America. It is on the White House website under "We the People". Please read it and if you agree, sign it and pass it on to as many like minded people you can think of. Your rights depend on it. It is my believe that the weapons ban is a Red Herring and we are being disarmed without constitutional violation by the depletion of the ammunition supply to the general public. Even if you don't agree, thank you for taking the time to read this E-mail and I encourage you all to make inquiries and look up some of the staggering facts about this subject on your own. Googling "Government Stockpiling of Ammunition 2013" will get you started.
The petition requires 150 signatures before it will be open for public view on the White House website. It requires 100,000 signatures to be addressed publicly by the President of the United States. The deadline for achieving that goal is is April 7th 2013. A copy of this E-mail has been sent to the house and senate representatives for the state of Oregon.
Wishing you all good health and happiness,

Just the tip of the Ice Berg

Add to the Armoured vehicles and Ammo

FEMA REX 84 Relocation Camps Built and Staffed by Contractors around the country, but Empty. One near Chicago was where the Gitmo Gang was to be moved to.

Thousands of Glock 40 Caliber Semi Auto Pistols purchased by Homeland Security. Request in to purchase 7000 more.

2 Classes of 250 FORSCOM Officers graduated by DHS since December 2012. FORSCOM also known as Civilian National Security Force, Civilian Military Force or Domestic Security Force depending on who is Spinning. $50 Million requested for new FORSCOM Uniforms.

For us that remember WW2, this has an evil precedence.

With the US dollar getting weaker and weaker due to printing gone WILD, we can expect serious problems coming and then civil unrest, riots, civil war and revolution. Our Founding Fathers would and should be proud. Your either a Patriot or you're a Loyalist, they'd tell ya !
