DHS Ammunition Stockpile: Over A Dozen Congressmen Demanding Investigation
Freedom Outpost ^ | Mar. 22, 2013 | Tim Brown

Posted on 03/22/2013 4:56:22 PM PDT by EXCH54FE

Just a couple of days ago, I reported on two congressmen who were demanding that the Department of Homeland Security explain their solicitations of 1.6 billion bullets for purchase. Congressman Leonard Lance (R-NJ) and Representative Timothy Huelscamp (R-KS) both want answers to why DHS needs to be purchasing that much ammunition, seeing that they are a domestic agency. Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) along with 14 other House representatives have written a letter to DHS wanting to know what the Federal agency is buying so many rounds of ammunition and whether or not they are doing it deliberately to restrict the supply to the American people.

That’s right friends. With the main stream wanting to poo poo this story, it is finally making its way to House Representatives and there are finally voices calling for accountability.

“The extraordinary level of ammunition purchases made by Homeland Security seems to have, in states such as my own, created an extreme shortage of ammunition to the point where many gun owners are unable to purchase any,” LaMalfa wrote in the letter.

LaMalfa pointed out that there are spending cuts, which I’ve pointed out are not any real cuts, across the board, so he wants to know why nearly 2 billion rounds of ammunition, enough for a 24 year war, were being solicited by DHS. “In light of these developments, the lack of transparency and questions that have been raised pertaining to these purchases,” Representative LaMalfa asked the following of DHS:

One thing that should not be overlooked in all of this is that Barack Obama did say that he thought he should have a “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded” as the military. Take into account that Obama’s DHS graduated its first group of FEMA corps, reminiscent of Hitler’s Brown Shirts, back in September, 2012

These arms are probably being shipped to the ME.

I don't think the millions of hollow point 9mm's are headed for the ME.

This is not ammo that the ME uses. This is intended for Americans.

Look into the HSI, "Homeland Security Investigations."

They are hidden within the DHS/ICE, but they are huge. They have offices in most cities and in 50 other nations. The SRT in this meme is their mailed fist. The new report about F&F leaked to the LATimes for the first time (that I've seen) named the HSI as a player in that deadly scandal.

The DHS is King Obama storm troopers very much resembling the brown shirts of Nazi Germany. The only difference is that they are to be armed with military equipment and would kill Americans if asked. Something to be worried about.

Government leaders know what all of us have been saying for the last couple years: The economy is going to seriously tank.

DHS is preparing to put down future riots with extreme prejudice that will occur when the EBT cards can no longer purchase anything.

For the most part, it won’t be we conservatives rioting but rather one of the Democrat base voters : Urban Blacks.

I will not be a bit surprised to see an Obama led government violently put down a black riot and then blame the GOP.

How long has this been bothering Freepers?
Just now are some of our elected Republicans starting to worry about this.
Where's the stinking Republican leadership, Boehner and McConnell, on this?

Boehner just said he trusts Obama. No reason for him this admin is up to no good.

40 S & W is the Federal cartridge. Ingenious of them to adopt a caliber that most shooters do not use, YET

They’re purchasing for one primary reason: to prevent ammo from being available to the public. Brass is not even available.

I’ve been thinking the same thing. When the SHTF keep a low profile and let the storm troopers and urban ferals go at each other. It will be a good time to observe and take notes.

FEMA Corps...Gadzooks! I defy anybody to figure out what this crappy bureacracy actually does with our hard-earned money other than turn out more Obama voters. Aren't you glad that a "diverse disaster workforce" is going to save you in the next disaster? I know it's the first thing I check when I need saving...is my disaster services provider white, black, yellow, brown, or red?

See below...

After reading the FEMA Corps brochure, the thing that popped into my mind was Olsen Johnson's comment about Gabby Johnson: "Now who can argue with that? I think we're all in debt to Gabby Johnson for stating what needed to be said. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed the courage little seen in this day and age."

That is correct and why FOX has not covered this or even Rush is a curious thing. And when we mention anything about this to the limited information voters, we are pooed pooed and told we are alarmists.

Poink! that’s my suspicion. of course, some of it is being saved here for his brownshirts, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of it going to his friends in AQ

I think if it was all this normal and innocent, Jan the Man would not be hiding from Congress on the issue. There would not be shortages of ammo on the market, either.

This is a spin piece. One hand of the military scratching the back of Obammy’s new Police State military.

Did he get a chance to ask Homeland inSecurity why they are molesting Americans at the airports in the name of stopping Islamic terrorists?

Also, if he could find out why they have named Vets, domestic terrorists, that would be useful to know.

Could he find out if and why Americans skeer the police staters so much, they want to disarm us?

I would also be interested to know if he could find out, if and why military leaders under the Bamster have to agree to shoot on the American people?

You want the framework behind everything Obama is doing?

Freedom From War, Publication 7277, State Dept. 1961.

Reducing nuke stockpile. Internal security forces - ie "we need a civilian military AS STRONG as ou military". Cutting regular military down - a sizeable part of which is operating under UN command or fulfilling UN objectives. Disarming citizens. The latest UN small arms treaty crap. Destroying the last superpower by killing the economy and creating economic crises by printing money like water. Getting ready to Cyprus our 401k's into "government bonds" and private bank savings into "stock/equity in the bank" your money's in - worse than FDIC-insured. Not far fetched as he hates America, walked around for months with the Post-America book he was reading, has all national intelligence assets looking at anyone who is "anti-government" (anti-Obama) as a threat. (And in case you didn't know, Freedom From War, the UN treaties do not allow civillians to remain armed - which means confiscation, by force if necessary.)

Do not think they will not take your supplies as well, as these emergency orders will also allow them to take any of your property they need. Once they disarm you it won't be hard.

This is what it's all about. In its "Second Annual Report to Congress" (February 1963), the ACDA presented a simple graphic depiction (see top of next page) demonstrating its proposed three-stage disarmament process:

U.S. THREE-STAGE DISARMAMENT PLAN
