Speculation abounds surrounding the 2 billion
rounds of ammunition purchased by the Department of Homeland Security and other national
alphabet agencies in recent years. Moreover, as the White House and their
cohorts in Congress contemplate the disarming of American citizens, the very
assault weapons purported to be so dangerous
in the hands of law abiding gun owners are being
purchased in mass quantities by local and federal law enforcement agencies.
So what is the purpose and motivation behind the
government’s continued efforts to stockpile so much firepower?
One frightening theory could explain what the
President and his national security apparatus are up to.
Many of you will remember a story I broke a long time ago – about presidential
candidate Barack Obama’s little-noticed announcement that, if elected
in 2008, he wanted to create a “civilian national security force”
as big, as strong and as well-funded as the Defense Department.
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.”
Could what we see happening now in the Department of
Homeland Security be the beginning of Obama’s dream and our
We never heard another mention of Obama’s
“civilian national security force” again. Not in 2008, 2009,
2010, 2011 or 2012.
But that brings us up to 2013 and the highly unusual
stockpiling of firearms and ammo by Homeland Security – firearms and
ammo that Obama would like to deny to ordinary citizens who are not members
of his domestic army.
Well, I hate to say it, but I may have predicted
Halloween column last fall, I stated that, if re-elected, Obama would
“declare a full-scale war on his domestic opposition.”
I wasn’t joking. I was deadly serious –
so serious, in fact, that I did something I pledged I would never do: Vote
for Mitt Romney. It was a matter of self-defense and self-preservation. I
said then that a second term of Obama might mean we would never see another
free and fair election in America. (I’m not even sure we saw one in
2012.) I suggested due process would go the way of the horse and buggy. I
said I expected Obama would move to shut down or destroy all independent
media. I even speculated that his biggest critics would eventually be rounded
up in the name of national security.
Think about it.
Why does the civilian Department of Homeland
Security need billions of rounds of ammunition?
This is the agency that is responsible for policing
the border. But it doesn’t.
This is the agency that is responsible for catching
terrorists. But it doesn’t.
So why does Homeland Security need so many weapons
and enough hollow-point rounds to plug every American six times?
Excerpted from Josefph Farah of WND
The official explanation?
As for concern about the type of bullets —
hollow points, which expand upon impact — the statement said the type
is “standard issue” and is used during “mandatory quarterly
firearms qualifications and other training sessions.” (link)
While the majority of Americans will take this
explanation at face value, there are some key facts that suggest the
Department of Homeland Security is mobilizing for a significant future action
against the American people.
- The US military has been actively
war-gaming worst-case scenarios that include economic collapse and civil
unrest, going so far as to simulate wide-scale food riots.
- Just last month the military deployed gunships
over Miami and executed
a training exercise with local police departments. A few days later,
were held in Houston, TX. Last year these “exercises” also
forces, armored personnel carriers and tanks on the streets of St. Louis.
- Despite overwhelming opposition, there is an
overt and focused movement to disarm Americans of their right to bear
semi-automatic personal defense rifles and any other firearms deemed
dangerous to the public. Those calling for this disarmament qualify
their positions by claiming these weapons are not necessary for
sporting, hunting, or personal defense. As if this provision of the US
Constitution doesn’t even exist, there is a total blackout on the
of the Second Amendment, which allows for citizens to bear arms to
protect themselves against tyrannical government.
- Heavily armored vehicles have
been spotted all over the country, and many local law enforcement agencies have
taken possession of these vehicles, normally reserved for military
engagements, and have put them to use in neighborhoods and communities
- Congress has authorized the deployment of some
drones in the skies of America, to be available for use by intelligence
agencies by 2015.
- 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.
- And, as Joseph
Farah points out, the President specifically claimed he would create a civilian
national security police force as large as the US military. If he meant
it, then we’re talking about 2 million or so civilians that will
be armed, deputized and backed by the government. To do what?
We’re not quite sure, but apparently we need these civilians for
something important, or else the President wouldn’t have brought
These are but a few examples of what our government
has been up to. There are hundreds of others.
Now put all those together and the complete puzzle
begins to emerge.
This surveillance infrastructure
and control grid are being designed not for foreign terrorists or rogue nations that may
do harm to America. They have been designed for you.
You, my fellow American, are the enemy.
