What The “H” Is Going On??? Amended: DHS Is Buying An Additional 750 Million Rounds – WHY? (Moved to Top)

I’m seeing these stories in a variety of sites now. This and DHS has bought and still buying 450,000,000 rounds of 40 cal. Hollow Points,
http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2012/03/16/dhs-order-450-million-rounds-40-caliber-ammunition-97771/ plus another 300,000,000 rounds of various calibers. Is DHS planning a war, planning to stop a war, incite riots on their own, put down riots incited by others, or impose martial law? This action seems to be unprecedented in our history. For the last two years (and can be verified by the editor) I have had a fear of violence with Obama who is a man with no past, and what past he has, is damn near scary. This DHS build up sounds Chavezlike or done in the Banana Republics. If anyone has a clue, tell us.

DHS gears up for civil unrest prior to presidential elections

The Department of Homeland Security has ordered masses of riot gear equipment to prepare for potential significant domestic riots at the Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention and next year’s presidential inauguration.

The DHS submitted a rushed solicitation to the Federal Business Opportunities site on Wednesday, which is a portal for Federal government procurement requisitions over $25,000. The request gave the potential suppliers only one day to submit their proposals and a 15-day delivery requirement to Alexandria, Virginia.

As the brief explains, “the objective of this effort is to procure riot gear to prepare for the 2012 Democratic and Republican National Conventions, the 2013 Presidential Inauguration and other future similar activities.”

ADDENDUM (8/14/12):
This makes a purchase of 1.2 BILLION Rounds just for DHS (It’s said to be for TRAINING) Training. Training for WHAT?

DHS Buys 750 Million Additional Rounds of Ammunition
Written by Gary North on August 14, 2012

Maybe you recall that the Department of Homeland security bought 450 million rounds of hollow-point ammunition earlier this year. But, when it comes to preparation, the DHS is not leaving anything to chance. It is ordering another 750 million rounds. The solicitation is here. It’s for training.

Training whom? How many? On what scale? Where? Why?

This story is really making the rounds. (I’ve got 750 million of ‘em!). It’s all over the Web – except on any mainstream media outlet. There, no one has noticed. “Nothing to see here. Please!”

  1. Just shows they’re unprepaired to fight us, the people. I have a boat more ammo then they do, for all my guns. They should have thought ahead. Perhaps if they had been tuned to The First Street Journal, and had heard Wagonwheel for all these years, they whould have known what to expect from leftists. Guess that’s just the way it goes.

  2. Leftists unprepared? I don’t think so.

    Unprepared is your Mitt Romney, as he flits around from country to country, committing gaffs left and right.

    And leave it to the weak to boast about all their ammo and guns; it’s all they have.

    And incidentally, they were not leftists who showed up at Obama rallies in 2008 packing heat. In reality, it was the weak-kneed righties who were intent on exhibiting their pistols, to show how tough and masculine. :)

  3. “So, WW, what is DHS doing with this army they are building?”

    Yorkshire, I don’t think you have yet absorbed how polarized modern Republican policies have made Americans. This is the most sustained and worst in my lifetime, far worse than McCarthyism, which was pretty bad in its time.

    But now we have a situation in which the American middle class is under attack by the 1% and their followers, like yourself, and wealth and power is going to these Plutarchs, at the expense of the middle and poor. We must stop this power grab taking place in our nation!

    Americans must not rest until we restore our electoral freedoms to our Republic.

    But now we have a situation in which the American middle class is under attack by the 1% and their followers, like yourself, and wealth and power is going to these Plutarchs.

    As I’ve said before, this political activity is breeding chaos, which leads to riots.

    We’ve seen this before when our ruling class has attempted to take power from the people, like union busting riots in the past.

    Doesn’t the First Amendment prohibit the government from interfering with the right to peaceably assemble and prohibit the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.

    The situation in Wisconsin when dictator Walker attempted to interfere with these rights, outrightly prohibiting the public service workers from collectively bargaining on their own behalf before their employers, the State of Wisconsin, we saw the beginnings once more of a crackdown on the rights of the people to advocate in their own behalf. They were not recognized by Governor Walker, which almost caused him to be relieved of his duties, and did cause their State Senate to change parties by recall vote by the citizens.

  4. Unprepared is your Mitt Romney, as he flits around from country to country, committing gaffs left and right.

    The all time king gaffe – You didn’t build that.

  5. The situation in Wisconsin when dictator Walker attempted to interfere with these rights

    You use extremist terms like “Dictator” to describe a duly elected official, and then call US polarizing??? In the immortal words of William Shatner – Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.

  6. Wagonwheel, visibly outraged, and claiming, “We’ve seen this before when our ruling class has attempted to take power from the people, like union busting riots in the past.” indignantly asks:

    “Doesn’t the First Amendment prohibit the government from interfering with the right to peaceably assemble and prohibit the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.”

    Wagonwheel then answers himself by pointing the muzzle of his indignation at his own head and squeezing the trigger:

    “Even in the application of the First (and Second) Amendment, the “art” of judgement applies …” “… an exception/context can be found where said pure absolute does not apply …”

    “The First (and Second) Amendment is actually a command, not a statement of an absolute. Anyone … will tell you that there are circumstances where a command has to be violated”

    Fortunately for Wagonwheel, since there is nothing inside the said head which otherwise might be damaged by an explosive contradiction, he survives, zombie-like, to yammer pointlessly yet another day …

  7. outrightly prohibiting the public service workers from collectively bargaining on their own behalf before their employers, the State of Wisconsin

    Collective bargaining is not a “Right” protected by the First Amendment. And their REAL employers are the taxpayers of Wisconsin. Where do THEY go for redress of grievances?

    “So, WW, what is DHS doing with this army they are building?”

    Yorkshire, I don’t think you have yet absorbed how polarized modern Republican policies have made Americans. This is the most sustained and worst in my lifetime, far worse than McCarthyism, which was pretty bad in its time.

    So, can I interpret this as DHS is going out and either kill, and/or round up all Republicans? Well, that’s absurd anyway. They have enough ammo to kill all of them. 8-) But consider this WW, you are placing 100% of the blame and problems on the Republicans. And you appear to say Democrats had and have nothing to do with this. Let’s look at the last 6 years: Reps had the Pres for 2 yrs, Dems 4 yrs; Dems had the Senate for all 6 yrs, of which one and a half years was veto proof; Dems have had the House for 4 yrs, Reps 2 yrs. The overwhelming control has been Dems, yet all this is the Reps fault. Now, I’m understanding the new math debate going on. Dems have a hard time with numbers.

    The point of the Posting was the Dem controlled DHS appears to be gearing up for a WAR. WW, you as a staunch Liberal/Progressive Democrat need to explain why a Dem President and his Dept. of Homeland Security is buying all this armament. Are you expecting a War? Will there be Riots? What is driving all this other than Obama’s lust for control and power? Or is Dear Leader going to pull a Hugo Chavez if he wins or loses?

  9. The Left knows Obama can’t win an election. With his unbroken record of failures and bald-faced lies, one after another after another, his unbridled arrogance compounded by his Administration’s outrageous corruption and pervasive incompetence, Obama’s goose is cooked, his only chance to remain in power is to suspend the elections.

    If his unindicted labor union accomplices, Black Panther street thugs, Occupy storm troops, and media enablers can manufacture a public crisis of adequate proportions, then Obama can claim justification for calling out the National Guard, suspending the elections, and demanding a cooling off period while his Democrat co-conspirators in the Senate prepare a resolution confirming His Majesty as President for the duration of the insurrection they instigated.

    All of which means they’re going to need lots of ammo.
