Skip to comments.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 years 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.
The total amount ordered is about 150 sets of riot helmets, thigh and groin protectors, hard-shell shin guards and other riot gear.
Specifically, DHS is looking to obtain:

Ok,,exactly WTF is DHS? If someone says “FBI”,,or “DEA” i know what that means. Is there a such an animal as a “DHS” agent with arrest powers? And who picked that name that sounds right out of the third Reich?
We are becoming a police state.
Somebody is greatly overstepping their boundaries.
Department of Homeland Security, and it was created by George W Bush after 911.
By law the government is supposed to publish an offer, collect bids, and elect a winner. But they aren't even pretending to play by the book anymore. Obviously the one-day submission period works only if someone in the industry knows about the order beforehand, has papers ready for submission, and has the gear in stock (otherwise 15-day performance period is impossible.) This offer is aimed at a specific company, and the publication is just a formality.
I know that, but i was under the impression that DHS was some kind of bureacratic organization that oversaw and coordinated FBI, Border patrol, TSA etc. Is a DHS agent some entirely other animal with arrest powers??
OK, why would Nappy be doing that, the LSM and dems all say Obama is going to win easily? Methinks their internal polls drastically say otherwise, for unlike Holder’s people, they know conservatives are not going to riot.
The Federal Protective Service is responsible for security at federal installations and property. If your town or area has a federal courthouse or office building then it has FPS to act as security guards.
We all should expect by now that there will be plenty of protesters in both Tampa and Charlotte. When the protesters figure out the convention sites are locked down they will move on to other symbols of the government. Only when they are stopped from damaging those do they get around to breaking all the windows at Starbucks and setting Nike Town on fire.
My only question is, since these conventions were announced a while ago, why did it take so long to order gear?
So what are the chances the DHS drums up fake emergencies in key districts/cities and countless don’t get to vote? As far as I’m concerned, people can riot all they want if Obama loses. They’re lunatics anyway and jail suits them. However, if Obama wins re-election..the first to do so despite such a horrific economic performance...then I’d highly suspect fraud and people should be up in arms.
Florida Civil Unrest PING.
The RNC Convention has been declared a Significant National Event, warranting the highest alert level of DHS assets.
Estimates are that as many as 10,000 protesters will descend upon Tampa. LEO’s anticipate up to 8,000 arrests. Leftist websites have published instructions on how to construct, and deploy, incendiary explosives - essentially, IED’s.
According to Internet traffic, no less than six OWS chapters are organizing to be present in Tampa during the convention. The list of Leftist outfits who are pledging to be present reads like a Who’s Who from the Bush years: A.N.S.W.E.R, CodePink, Moveon.org, and Rainbow PUSH, among others.
Your answer is simple, Bandit: they’ve known for months what the threat is at the convention. They’ve been preparing for at least as long. The release of this article, with less than four weeks to go, is for the consumption of the Left.
Department of Homeland Security.......the Lady of Ludicrous and her boss and I suspect Holder are at “it” again.
USNBandit ~ “My only question is, since these conventions were announced a while ago, why did it take so long to order gear? “
Because Napolitano is in charge
I am sure that she has ordered the “bean-bag guns” ordered removed from the Southern border to Tampa .
The Federal Border agents have been issued replacment “ squirt guns” in place of the “bean-bag” guns and are now armed with tequila juice and lime. The intent is to get the cartels drunk , so they can be arrested for being drunk and disorderly, and in their drunken confusion state they will not know that they are heading south ,again across the border.
They would use the same technique for the political conventions , but they cannot afford the “Jello-shots” on their limited budget , ... and Michelle isn’t sharing !
Riot gear for the inauguration?
They are fomenting unrest as we speak. They are going to make sure that as much damage is done that can be done in as short a time as possible.
They will claim ‘disenfranchisement’ and/or ‘voter suppression’ and guess who dhs will ‘protect’.
In 2008 Democrat rat bastard anarchist Occutards were charged AND CONVICTED plotting to firebomb police cars and the GOP convention as well as kidnapping GOP delegates.
Can’t have Underground Commie rats making news this election cycle. They were f*&*ing lucky LAST time it was stricken from the history books.
Obamunist brownshirts for sh!theel Communist Athesim F8ckYeah.
DHS is busy scanning luggage at airports for bootleg music recordings and making promo videos for the city of Houston on how to Duck and Cover when some lone nut terrorist is gunning for you azz.
Let me remind you that Secretary of Hate Hillary Clintoon stole 1000 FBI files ILLEGALLY when she was married to the then President of the United States.
Laws do not matter to Communists.
In 2000 the Leftist Socialist Anarchist THUGS said that white people staged riots at the polls and interfered with the “recounts”.
