Posted on 09/20/2012 5:16:11 AM PDT by Travis McGee
The Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition- that is not a typo -- during the last six months. This includes 450 million rounds of .40 hollow point, 200 million rounds of .223 rifle ammunition, and 176,000 rounds of .308 168-grain hollow point boat tail (HPBT) that is used almost exclusively as ammo for sniper rifles.
From beforeitsnews.com we read:
Why is everyone all up in arms about the recent purchase by Homeland security of 1.4 Billion rounds of ammunition?
Our undeclared Foreign War in Iraq Consumes about 70,000,000 (70 Million) Rounds of Ammunition Each Year, which would take about 20 years to consume 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition ordered by the Department of Homeland Security alone, not including all the ammunition ordered by the weather service, Social Security, etc! 20 Years To Use All 1.4 Billion Rounds Of This Ammo?
Is the Department of Homeland security to protect us from foreign terrorists, or to protect the central government from the American people?
Read the entire chilling article. Avoid any political discussions about Obama's infamous 2008 quote, lest your blood pressure dangerously rise.
"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that 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."

"I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?"
Then I said, "Here am I; send me!"...Isaiah 6:8
RLTW...an oath not forgotten.
Again, this guy Westmoreland is throwing it out there that this is training ammunition.
Hollowpoint ammo is NOT training ammunition. It is not needed to punch holes in paper, it is best for punching great jagged holes in people.
By George, I think he's got it!
How do we determine the locations of their armories? Will we have to take out our National Guard neighbors to capture them? Or will bureaucrats be standing security over the facilities?
So many questions!
With each story the number keeps going up, now it’s up to 1.4 BILLION............gee, that’s a lot of ammo.
It may not be training ammo to someone who has to buy their own, but if cost is no object, like a gov't agency training with your duty ammo makes sense.
DHS bureaucrats in charge of supply/distribution will likely hand out ammo to (newly-badged and ill-trained) agents like DoE hands out tax dollars to green energy boondoggles, “Lots of Tea Party Extremists out there, better take an extra case.” Thanks in advance, Janet!
Lying in bed waiting for the sun to rise, I started thinking of every possibility that this ammunition could be used for.
The best one is that the Muslims start protesting in the USA and it has to be used on them to quell the crowds and keep them from torching our schools and theaters. I am certain that is about 720 degrees out of alignment from what is actually intended.
I’m thinking that their deep planners are thinking that a total civil breakdown will follow a financial collapse.
EBTs flashing ZERO etc.
They will need to “restore order by any means necessary,” and they may not have a chance to obtain any more ammo for several years or longer, once the factories are closed etc.
It’s an adjunct to “continuity of govt operations.”
“Continuity of ammunition.”
That’s my take. They are planning for “Taxamageddon” or some other “Amageddon” leading to a total social breakdown and explosion.
It’s not like it’s needed at our foreign embassies.
Well, at least WE will know where to go when we need more ammunition ... we can "draw" on their stash ...
We've learned nothing from Khobar Towers and the Downing Report.
“...total social breakdown and explosion.”
The globalists’ community organizer, Obama, has been working the Middle East for chaos and he wants it here, too. He wants a world collapse. World war is likely.
Out of collapse-chaos will come the “progress” of the New World Order. One world bank, one world currency, Nations made into states to carry out the orders of an unelected global government. Debt erased. New phase of hell for mankind.
They are very optimistic to believe they can grab the reins of a NWO out of total disorder that will follow the EBT cards etc flashing ERROR.
Mad Max anarchy is just as likely.
