DHS Pathetic Excuse For Buying Billions Of Rounds Of Ammunition:

It’s all about saving money, you see. DHS isn’t arming up in anticipation of a shooting war on the streets of America, and it’s not buying thousands of armored assault vehicles for that purpose either. No, DHS is only buying all this ammo to save you money!

This response by DHS, of course, is an obvious lie. Why? Because a significant portion of the bullet purchases specify hollow point rounds. In case you didn’t know, hollow points are significantly MORE expensive than “ball” ammo (FMJ). Under the Geneva convention, hollow points are illegal to use in war because they cause far greater tissue damage, too. So they can only be used domestically, inside the United States in a civil action, not an international war.

If DHS really wanted to “significantly lower costs” on ammunition, it would have purchased FMJ rounds (full metal jacket), not hollow points. But in April of 2012, ammunition manufacturer ATK announced it had been awarded a DHS purchase contract for 450 million rounds of hollow point .40 caliber ammo. That’s almost half a billion rounds right there, and they’re all hollow point rounds.

–  US Army May Use Hollow Points In New Pistols In Violation Of International Protocol (ZeroHedge, July 13, 2015):

A few months back, when “boots on the ground” trial balloons were floating around Washington, one argument made for sending so-called “forward spotters” to Iraq and possibly to Syria was that US airstrikes against ISIS needed to be made more efficient and more precise in order to minimize collateral damage.

As a reminder here’s an excerpt from a Bloomberg piece published on May 22:

Conducting precision airstrikes that avoid civilian casualties is more difficult without spotters using laser designators and other tools to guide them, particularly in and around cities, said a State Department official who spoke under ground rules requiring anonymity. Continue reading »

DARPA Announces Successful Live-Fire Test of EXACTO “Smart” Bullets (Activist Post, April 28, 2015):

DARPA seems to always be at the leading edge of finding more creative and effective means of killing. They first announced in July, 2014 their EXACTO Project (Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance) – the first ever guided low-caliber “smart” bullets.

A rather low-quality video of the 50-caliber round sought to demonstrate the potential for a “state-of-the-art sniper system (that) combines a maneuverable bullet and a real-time guidance system to track and deliver the projectile to the target, allowing the bullet to change path during flight.” Continue reading »

Thomas Jefferson Tyranny Quote

Seven years ago, the U.S. Army War College issued a report calling on the military to be prepared should they need to put down civil unrest within the country. Summarizing the report, investigative journalist Chris Hedges declared, “The military must be prepared, the document warned, for a ‘violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States,’ which could be provoked by ‘unforeseen economic collapse,’ ‘purposeful domestic resistance,’ ‘pervasive public health emergencies’ or ‘loss of functioning political and legal order.’ The ‘widespread civil violence,’ the document said, ‘would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.’” At what point will all of the government’s carefully drawn plans for dealing with civil unrest, “homegrown” terrorism and targeting pre-crime become a unified blueprint for locking down the nation?


Turning America Into A Battlefield: A Blueprint For Locking Down The Nation (The Rutherford institute, April 27, 2015):

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

– President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961

A standing army – something that propelled the early colonists into revolution – strips the American people of any vestige of freedom.How can there be any semblance of freedom when there are tanks in the streets, military encampments in cities, Blackhawk helicopters and armed drones patrolling overhead?

It was for this reason that those who established America vested control of the military in a civilian government, with a civilian commander-in-chief. They did not want a military government, ruled by force. Rather, they opted for a republic bound by the rule of law: the U.S. Constitution. Continue reading »

“Arming for riots across America?”

The U.S. government is getting ready for an all-out civil war.

Links are down below.


Arming for Riots Across America? Homeland Stockpiling “Less Lethal Specialty Munitions” (ZeroHedge, April 4, 2015):

Riot police of the Western world have recently come up against a succession of formidable threats. In Frankfurt for instance, German authorities were forced to square off against a legion of angry clowns who, in an effort to express their displeasure at austerity measures advocated by the ECB (which was at the time celebrating the completion of their new Frankfurt headquarters), set quite a few things on fire. Meanwhile, in the mean streets of Montreal, an “association of young communists” forgot to provide authorities with a protest itinerary, which led police to settle the matter with rubber bullets and sound bombs. Finally, in Quebec City, riot police were accosted by dozens of students who wanted, among other things, for the library to stay open longer, leaving authorities with no choice but to show protesters the meaning of “crowd control” via point-blank tear gas gun assaults. Here are the visuals:

Protests2

Given that, and considering several recent contentious situations in Ferguson (Michael Brown) and New York (Eric Garner), it appears the Department of Homeland Security (via the US Customs and Border Protection dept) is intent on enhancing its ability to bring unruly crowds under control, so if you are a “less lethal” munitions supplier, you may want to check out the business opportunity the government has for you. Here’s the official summary: Continue reading »

The War On Preppers: Obama Bans Ammo For The Most Popular Rifle In America (Economic Collapse, Feb 26, 2015):

Because he can’t get Congress to approve the things that he wants to do, Barack Obama has apparently decided to rule by decree for the rest of his time in the White House.  One of Obama’s latest moves is to try to ban some of the most popular ammunition for the most popular rifle in America.  Previously, the Obama administration attempted unsuccessfully to ban the AR-15.  That didn’t work, so now Obama is going after the ammunition.  This is yet another example of the war on preppers that is going on all over the nation.  Whether you are a gun owner or not, this assault on our constitutional rights should disturb you greatly.  Barack Obama has promised to try to squeeze as much “change” as possible out of his last two years, and in the process he is “fundamentally transforming” America.  But what will our country look like when he is done?

At the top of the Drudge Report today, there was a story from the Washington Examiner detailing this ammo ban…

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters. Continue reading »

U.S. Postal Service Stockpiling Ammo (Last Resistance, Feb 7, 2014):

Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration made news not too long ago when it was revealed that they had been buying up all the ammo and “assault” weapons. (Actually, if the government buys them, they cease to be “assault” weapons and become “personal defense” weapons.)

Homeland Security and the SSA aren’t the only ones buying up ammo and assault weapons. Now, the U.S. Postal Service wants to get in on the action. Infowars reported:

The U.S. Postal Service is currently seeking companies that can provide “assorted small arms ammunition” in the near future.

On Jan. 31, the USPS Supplies and Services Purchasing Office posted a notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website asking contractors to register with USPS as potential ammunition suppliers for a variety of cartridges.

“The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition,” the notice reads, which also mentioned a deadline of Feb. 10.

Yes, Homeland Security is preparing for the greatest financial collapse in (known) world history.

And yes, they are also preparing for an all-out civil war, the coming New World Order and even WW3.

DHS has bought billions of rounds of ammunition … and 450 million of them are hollow point rounds.

Under the Geneva convention, hollow points are illegal to use in war, …

… but at home against the American people they are obviously OK.

Is Homeland Security Preparing for the Next Wall Street Collapse? (Web of Debt, Oct 7, 2013):

By Ellen Brown,

Reports are that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is engaged in a massive, covert military buildup. An article in the Associated Press in February confirmed an open purchase order by DHS for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. According to an op-ed in Forbes, that’s enough to sustain an Iraq-sized war for over twenty years. DHS has also acquired heavily armored tanks, which have been seen roaming the streets. Evidently somebody in government is expecting some serious civil unrest. The question is, why?

Recently revealed statements by former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown at the height of the banking crisis in October 2008 could give some insights into that question. An article on BBC News on September 21, 2013, drew from an explosive autobiography called Power Trip by Brown’s spin doctor Damian McBride, who said the prime minister was worried that law and order could collapse during the financial crisis. McBride quoted Brown as saying:

Bosnia war survivor warns of things to come in collapse of America (Natural News, May 9, 2013):

We are republishing two important stories here (with links to original sources) that you need to read. The first is a report from a man who survived the war in Bosnia. Although the source of this cannot be confirmed, the advice is extremely valuable regardless.

The second story, appended to the bottom of this article, lists 35 excuses that will get you killed if you fail to prepare for what’s coming. This was originally published on SHTFplan.com and is sourced below.

Read both of these articles if you want to live.

Here’s the first:

One year in Hell…

I am from Bosnia. You know, between 1992 and 1995, it was hell. For one year, I lived and survived in a city with 6,000 people without water, electricity, gasoline, medical help, civil defense, distribution service, any kind of traditional service or centralized rule.

Our city was blockaded by the army; and for one year, life in the city turned into total crap. We had no army, no police. We only had armed groups; those armed protected their homes and families.

When it all started, some of us were better prepared. But most of the neighbors’ families had enough food only for a few days. Some had pistols; a few had AK-47s or shotguns.

The majority of the people has ‘stored’ food good enough for 3-7 days at home.

Many of those totally unprepared people have stocked up guns and ammo for a full-blown civil war and they really think they are now fully prepared for whatever is coming.



Those same people say that they will take by force whatever they are in need or in lack of!

Best of luck if you are surrounded by those idiots!

Forget Gold: Only Food, Tools and Resourcefulness Will Matter In a Mad Max Scenario (SHFT Plan, May 8, 2013):

When we talk about Mad Max scenarios, we are talking about events where the world as we know it no longer exists. No banks, no credit cards, no grocery stores, no gas stations, and a landscape devoid of law & order.

It’s an outlier to be sure, but one that has been experienced by millions of people throughout history.

Worst case scenarios do happen. And when they do, the activities associated with the regular flow of commerce as we understand them today cease completely.

Historically, this has happened more often than not as a result of economic calamity stemming from states that take on massive amounts of debt, with the end result being widespread war and total economic destruction. Continue reading »

Reps challenge DHS ammo buys, say agency using 1,000 more rounds per person than Army (FOX News, April 26, 2013):

Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz said Thursday that the Department of Homeland Security is using roughly 1,000 rounds of ammunition more per person than the U.S. Army, as he and other lawmakers sharply questioned DHS officials on their “massive” bullet buys.

“It is entirely … inexplicable why the Department of Homeland Security needs so much ammunition,” Chaffetz, R-Utah, said at a hearing.

The hearing itself was unusual, as questions about the department’s ammunition purchases until recently had bubbled largely under the radar — on blogs and in the occasional news article. But as the Department of Homeland Security found itself publicly defending the purchases, lawmakers gradually showed more interest in the issue.

UNPRECEDENTED Shortages Of Ammo, Physical Gold And Physical Silver (Economic Collapse, April 25, 2013):

All over the United States we are witnessing unprecedented shortages of ammunition, physical gold and physical silver.  Recent events have helped fuel a “buying frenzy” that threatens to spiral out of control.  Gun shops all over the nation are reporting that they have never seen it this bad, and in many cases any ammo that they are able to get is being sold even before it hits the shelves.  The ammo shortage has already become so severe that police departments all over America are saying that they are being told that it is going to take six months to a year to get their orders.  In fact, many police departments have begun to trade and barter with one another to get the ammo that they need.  Meanwhile, the takedown of paper gold and paper silver has unleashed an avalanche of “panic buying” of physical gold and physical silver all over the planet.  In the United States, some dealers are charging premiums of more than 25 percent over the spot price for gold and silver and they are getting it.  People are paying these prices even though they are being told that delivery will not happen for a month or two in many cases.  Some dealers are feverishly taking as many orders as they can, and they are just hoping that they will be able to get the physical gold and silver to eventually fill those orders.  Personally, I have never seen anything like this.  If things are this tight now, what is going to happen when the next major financial crisis strikes and people really begin to panic?

DHS excuse for buying billions of rounds of ammo exposed as yet another blatant lie (Natural News, April 3, 2013):

Responding to a letter from Sen. Tom Coburn, the Department of Homeland Security — an agency that has no business being armed in the first place — says it’s buying billions of rounds of ammunition in order to “significantly lower costs.”

It’s all about saving money, you see. DHS isn’t arming up in anticipation of a shooting war on the streets of America, and it’s not buying thousands of armored assault vehicles for that purpose either. No, DHS is only buying all this ammo to save you money!

The press release claimed, “The special hollow point effectively passes through a variety of barriers and holds its jacket in the toughest conditions.” You can read the full original press release at Infowars.com.

Feds buying enough bullets for ’24-year war’ (WND, Feb 17, 2013)

Federal, non-military agencies, noted radio host Mark Levin last week, have purchased enough ammunition recently to not only shoot every American five times, but also engage in a prolonged, domestic war.

The numbers are based on recent reports that put the total federal ammunition buy in the last 10 months at approaching two billion rounds.

“To provide some perspective,” Levin noted, “experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq war American troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. At that rate, the [Department of Homeland Security] is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war. A 24-year Iraq war!”

Prices have more than doubled over past year in some shops, retailers are putting limits on the amount a customer can buy, and some common types of ammunition, such as .22-caliber long rifle shells, are hard to get.

But progressives are also looking to ban legal online sales through a bevy of new gun control resolutions, including H.R. 142, which “would ban Internet or mail order ammunition purchases.”

Meanwhile, the state of New York just passed a ban on Internet “assault weapon” sales.
