Why the Dept. of Education Needs Shotguns

By Robert Longley, About.com Guide
March 18, 2010

While the U.S. Department of Education's notice of intent to buy 27 brand-new Model 870 police-grade 12-gauge shotguns may conjure up visions of jack-booted federal thugs marching down the halls of your local grade school, the Department's need for the guns is valid.

The shotguns, intended to supplement the Department of Education's "existing shotgun inventory, certified armor and combat training and protocol," will be used by the Department's Office of Inspector General (OIG).

As the law enforcement arm of the Department of Education, the OIG investigates cases of fraud, theft and other illegal uses of federal education funds. Since their job requires potentially dangerous duties including serving warrants and making felony arrests, Education Department OIG agents are require to carry firearms.

An annual list of cases investigated by Education Department OIG agents over the last 10 years reveals many cases of fraud involving the theft of from $100,000 to $600,000 in federal funds.

http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/oig/hotline.html
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) Hotline is available for anyone suspecting fraud, waste, or abuse involving U.S. Department of Education funds or programs to provide their concern to the OIG.

This Act provides protection from reprisal only to non-Federal employees who report waste, fraud or abuse connected to the use of ARRA funds

Department of Education SWAT Team Raids Area Home Seeking Renegade Teacher

Secret Law Enforcement Teams in Every Government Agency, Official Reveals


SAN NARCISO, Calif. -- A S.W.A.T. team, acting under orders from the U.S. Department of Education, raided a California home Tuesday and reportedly roughed up the owner, Thad Kittle, because of a student aid issue involving his estranged wife. One witness said, “They all had guns. They dragged him out in his boxer shorts, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him.” Kittle’s three children were also detained in the terrifying incident. His wife no longer lives at the address, and was not present.

The search warrant noted that authorities were seeking evidence related to Financial Aid Fraud, Conspiracy, Theft of Government Funds, False Statement to Government Agency and Wire Fraud. However, the judge who signed the warrant specifically deleted the line authorizing the search for “contraband or any other item that is immediately apparent to be evidence of a crime,” leading critics to question the use of excessive force...and why the Department of Education has an armed paramilitary.
 

Strength Lies in Attack, Not Defense
 An official who oversees government enforcement services clarified on Thursday that federal agents with the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), not local police or S.W.A.T. units, served the search warrant. Relti Floda, secretary of the Office of Recovery and Weaponized Enforcement Leverage (ORWEL), explained that the OIG is a semi-independent branch of the U.S. Department of Education that executes warrants for criminal offenses ...

It's just to complete the transition schools have been do, going through to look as much like jails as they can. Now they can have shotgun armed wardens patrol the halls to make sure that any student that tries to escape his brainwashing it thoroughly "dealt with" before they can get off the schools grounds.
You know what the funny and maybe just a little sad thing here is? Before their domestication by the Romans sheep were regarded as one of the more aggressive and free spirited creatures on this planet, sound familiar anyone?

Then  there is the OIG Exclusion List !

https://www.streamlineverify.com/services.php
The OIG exclusion list is updated EVERY month.

http://oig.hhsc.state.tx.us/exclusions/search.aspx
List of Excluded Individuals/Entities Search

http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/caregiver/fedbcpilot/fedexclusnlist.pdf
OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL LIST OF EXCLUDED INDIVIDUALS AND ENTITIES
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 expanded and revised the
US Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) administrative
sanction authorities by, among other things, establishing certain mandatory and discretionary
exclusions for various types of misconduct. The federal government will not reimburse Medicare or
Medicaid services (1) furnished by an excluded individual or entity, or (2) directed or prescribed by
an excluded physician.

http://www.sentrylink.com/blog/2007/03/26/medical-background-checks-and-the-oig-exclusions-list/

Certain professions require more specialized screening than the traditional background check. Medical providers fall into this category. In this post we explore the medical exclusions database provided by the U.S. Office of the Inspector General (OIG), and how it is used for medical employment screening
...
What gets someone on to such a list? Here is the list of exclusion reasons. The majority of them deal with fraud, not surprisingly, but also include substance abuse and patient neglect, all particular risks in the health-care arena.

(Students, be warned: defaulting on loans or scholarship obligations can also get you on the list.)

http://blog.providertrust.com/blog/bid/163679/Default-on-Federal-Student-Loan-leads-to-OIG-Exclusion-List
Default on Federal Student Loan leads to OIG Exclusion List

Did you know that if your employee defaults on his/her federal student loan that they can be put on the OIG Exclusion List during the period of the default? It's true and it is being enforced by the OIG.

Furthermore, we have seen cases where a state professional licensing board refused to renew a nurse's license at the state level while she was in default on her state (Illinois) student assistance loan.

Illinois isn't the only state tying these two things together, so be proactive and monitor for exclusions and license status.

Is your state refusing to renew licenses of individuals who are in default of a student loan? Share your experience with us.

The Social Security Administration Is Buying 174,000 High-Powered Rounds Of Ammunition

Robert Johnson|Aug. 15, 2012, 11:47 AM


First the DHS needed 450 million rounds of ammunition, then the NOAA requested 46,000 rounds, now we've discovered an online request at FBO.Gov calling for 174,000 rounds of ammunition for the Social Security Administration (SSA).
 
The request actually calls for 174K .357 hollow points that arguably have as much stopping power as any bullet out there, and hollow points do as much damage to soft tissue as possible on top of that.
...
Alex Jones' InfoWars is quick to point out that this acquisition jibes with a DHS operation in January where the agency swarmed a Leesburg, FL social security office and posted armed guards outside the doors.

See, that's the problem. All these various federal agencies have a "law enforcement arm", each are armed and go around acting like police. Department of Education making arrests? Seriously? What happened to call a cop when you think the law is being broken?

One big problem is that we have so many agencies, each with a division that carries firearms and makes arrests, etc, when they aren't even part of the Justice Department. So who polices them to make sure they are doing their "police" inverstigations properly? Nobody.

The other issue is with them making arrests. They are not a law enforcement agency. Period. Neither is the IRS, etc.

These agencies have no business with a "law enforcement arm". That's what police are for...oh wait, that's federal agencies tryng to have federal cops on staff, trying to enforce federal laws. Looks like an end around the local civilian police.

So we see this is about federal tyranny over the states. We had a war over that before. If the feds keep pushing like this, like they did back in the day, we'll have a whole new revolution on our hands. But I'm afraid that is exactly what they want to happen so they can usher in UN troops and make the global take over of the US complete.

  All these departments buying ammo is insane---unless what AJ has been saying is true.  They are going to war against the American people.  Of course we know it is true.

Training excercise startles locals
 Published: Wednesday, January 04, 2012
LEESBURG
MILLARD K. IVES | Staff Writer
millardives@dailycommercial.com

It may have looked like they were ready for war or some deranged person looking for his late Social Security benefits.
 
But it was only Federal Protective Service officers with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security who were conducting a random training operation early Tuesday morning when they surprisingly showed up at the Social Security Administration office in downtown Leesburg.
 
With their blue and white SUVs circled around the Main Street office, at least one official was posted on the door with a semiautomatic rifle, randomly checking identifications. And other officers, some with K-9s, sifted through the building.
 
"I thought someone was upset about not getting there check," said Laura Kelly, who took a friend to the office on Tuesday.
 
According to one Homeland official in the Washington, D.C. office, Operation Shield. is an effort that uses routine, unannounced visits by FPS inspectors to test the effectiveness of contract guards, or protective security officers -- "detecting the presence of unauthorized persons and potentially disruptive or dangerous activities."
 
Part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, FPS is the federal law enforcement agency that provides integrated security and law enforcement services to over 9,000 federally-owned and leased buildings, facilities, properties and other assets.
 
Officers on the scene would not speak to the press and by noon they were gone. But Thomas Milligan, district manager for the Social Security Administration office, said while the visit came as a surprise, the office was ready. He added the officers checked videos, security measures, alarm system and more.
 
"It was to make sure security measures are in place and properly followed," Milligan said.

Why Is Homeland Security Buying 450 Million Rounds of Hollow Point Bullets?
Posted on March 30, 2012

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has awarded defense contractor ATK with an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement for .40 caliber hollow point ammunition. According to an official ATK press release, U.S. agents will receive a maximum of 450 million rounds over a five-year period.
 
The following is an excerpt from the press release:
 
ATK announced that it is being awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement from the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS, ICE) for .40 caliber ammunition. This contract features a base of 12 months, includes four option years, and will have a maximum volume of 450 million rounds.
 
ATK was the incumbent and won the contract with its HST bullet, which has proven itself in the field. [...]
 
“We are proud to extend our track record as the prime supplier of .40 caliber duty ammunition for DHS, ICE,” said Ron Johnson, President of ATK’s Security and Sporting group.
 
The hollow point, of course, features a pitted or hollow tip intended to expand upon entering its target. ATK says its ammunition is “engineered for 100-percent weight retention, limits collateral damage, and avoids over-penetration” — all hallmarks of the hollow point.
 
This is not the first time DHS has placed such an order, however. In 2009, it signed a contract with Winchester for the procurement of 200 million hollow points.
 
The order may seem unusually high, but gun experts I talked to said it is not necessarily unusual and simply reflects a long-running practice by DHS and law enforcement agencies to use any remaining budget surplus on items routinely used and that would not be called into question. The idea being that if an agency does not use its entire budget in expenditures, the government will lower its budget the following year.
 
On the other hand, the decreased retail availability for hollow points does drive up demand, and hence price for such ammunition. Whether the consequence is an intended one, remains to be seen.
 
So is this a calculated move by the government to curb ammunition availability to civilians or is it simply another way for it to spend money? Weigh in with your thoughts below.

This Is Why NOAA Supposedly Ordered 46,000 Rounds Of Ammunition

Last night we put up a post mentioning that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) placed a request for 46,000 rounds of mostly hollow point, copper jacketed, .40 caliber rounds of ammunition

...
We talked to Scott Smullen, the Deputy Director of NOAA Communications & External Affairs who says the announcement is a mistake and is apparently being corrected at the time of this writing.
 
From Scott's email:
 
Due to a clerical error in the federal business vendor process, a solicitation for ammunition and targets for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement mistakenly identified NOAA's National Weather Service as the requesting office.  The error is being fixed and will soon appear correctly in the electronic federal bidding system.  The ammunition is standard issue for many law enforcement agencies and it will be used by 63 NOAA enforcement personnel in their firearms qualifications and training.
 

Last night's post mentions that the "NOAA overseas the National Marine Fisheries Service, which is responsible for all U.S. marine resources. The acquisition mentions this agency, NMFS and the OLE — Office of law Enforcement."
 
The reason for the number of rounds is explained in a follow up question:
 
Agents and officers are required to have 200 rounds in his or her duty bag, and twice-a-year firearm qualification and training calls for agents to use another 500-600 rounds. In addition, firearms instructors with more than one pistol may need more rounds in a year. In 2011, the guidance was that each agent and officer would need 700 rounds per year to meet these requirements.
 
Smullen says there are 111 special agents and 23 enforcement officers, bringing the total number of OLE agents to 134. "And here," he says, "is a succinct way of explaining what OLE folks do:"
 
NOAA officers and agents enforce the nation's ocean and fishing laws to ensure a level playing field for fishermen and to protect marine species like whales, dolphins and turtles.
 
From the NOAA Office of Law Enforcement website:
http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/ole/ole_about.html

NOAA's Office of Law Enforcement is dedicated to enforcing laws that conserve and protect our nation's living marine resources and their natural habitat. Our goal is to assure that the many people who enjoy these resources for recreation or rely on them for business follow the rules that will maintain the species for future generations.
 
NOAA's Office of Law Enforcement protects fish stocks from depletion and marine mammals from extinction. We also protect the livelihoods of commercial fishers, the hobbies of recreational fishers, and the health of seafood consumers.
 
Extensive Area of Jurisdiction
 
NOAA's Office of Law Enforcement is responsible for carrying out more than 35 federal statutes. The agency's jurisdiction spans more than 3 million square miles of open ocean, more than 85,000 miles of U.S. coastline, the country's 13 National Marine Sanctuaries and its Marine National Monuments. It's also responsible for enforcing U.S. treaties and international law governing the high seas and international trade.

The idea being that if an agency does not use its entire budget in expenditures, the government will lower its budget the following year.

That is standard government practice due to the way budgets work. Don't spend it all, you lose next year that amount. It was suppose to curd expenses, the idea being that if you don't use as much, they trim the excess next year, but instead, agencies use all their money every budget year, at least, so they won't lose any money. So much for saving the country money! I saw it done firsthand when I was in the Navy. Supply went around taking orders for basically whatever you wanted to use up the funds left at the end of the budget year. Common practice. In practice, it causes expenses to rise every budget year. Stuff is bought that isn't needed, things replaced when they work just fine and may be new. And every desk got a new sheet of plexiglas, whether it needed it or not.

Just take a look at the various government auctions of surplus stuff that takes place multiple times a year. All the major agencies have auctions of surplus. That's the public's money going right down the drain.

The problem is that the federal government gets WAY too much tax income, and they are forced to spend it on all these excesses, maxing out the budget every year, like guns for weathermen! Agencies have agencies inside agencies! There is so much law enforcement overlap and excess, it's got to the point the Department of Commerce of all agencies has people with guns.

DHS Classifies New Ammo Purchases Following Controversy                    
Federal agency blacks out amount of bullets being bought

http://www.presstv.ir/usdetail/256478.html
DHS classifies new ammo purchases following controversy
Thu Aug 16, 2012 12:4AM GMT

The Department of Homeland Security has redacted information relating to the quantity of bullets it is buying following a controversy concerning the agency’s purchase of over a billion rounds of ammo, which many fear is a sign the federal government is preparing for civil unrest in the United States.

Despite the fact that documents are only supposed to be redacted if authorized by Congress or for national security reasons, a solicitation posted on the FedBizOpps website yesterday concerning ammunition purchases made by the DHS on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) contains numerous blacked out sections.
 
The classified portions of the document include references to the amount of 223 62 and 223 64 grain ammunition being purchased.
 
The solicitation explains how the contract put out by the DHS to purchase the ammunition was not subject to “full and open competition,” a process justified by what the DHS claims was an “unusual and compelling urgency” to acquire the bullets, noting that there is a shortage of bullets which is threatening a situation which could cause “substantial safety issues for the government” should law enforcement officials not be adequately armed.
 
The Department of Homeland Security’s decision to black out sections of the document, including the number of bullets being purchased, is likely to be related to a massive controversy which has snowballed over the last few weeks pertaining to concerns as to why the federal agency has purchased well over a billion rounds of bullets over the last 6 months alone.
 
The DHS’ decision back in March to purchase of 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage prompted questions as to why the federal agency required such powerful bullets and in such large quantities merely for training purposes.

This was followed up by a more recent order for a further 750 million rounds of assorted ammunition, including bullets that can penetrate walls.

Given the fact that the DHS is also acquiring riot gear in preparation for civil unrest which could take place at the upcoming DNC, RNC and presidential inauguration, the purchase of ammunition in such massive numbers has stoked fears that the federal government could be preparing to use force against the American people.
...
The DHS’ decision to censor information related to bullet purchases for immigration authorities could also be an attempt to assuage concerns that the agency is expecting to have to resort to force to deal with a mass influx of immigrants from Mexico.
 
Back in December, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano directed ICE to prepare for a substantial inundation of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people. Prison Planet

Oh, so they admit to not making the bid available to the public. That's likely a violation.

"unusual and compelling urgency to acquire bullets"?

They should have kept their mouth shut! Now they've made it worse. ::)

Why Is Homeland Security Buying 450 Million Rounds of Hollow Point Bullets?
Posted on March 30, 2012

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has awarded defense contractor ATK with an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement for .40 caliber hollow point ammunition. According to an official ATK press release, U.S. agents will receive a maximum of 450 million rounds over a five-year period.
 
The following is an excerpt from the press release:
 
ATK announced that it is being awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement from the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS, ICE) for .40 caliber ammunition. This contract features a base of 12 months, includes four option years, and will have a maximum volume of 450 million rounds.

FOX News dismisses 'Conspiracy Theories', Ignores 750 Million round ammo purchase
 
By  Anthony Edward Borelli
EXCLUSIVE:  August 19, 2012  
...
So just what am I so upset about?

FOX News, while characterizing concerned Americans as 'conspiracy theorists,' neglected to address their core concern, namely, 750 million rounds of ammunition requested by DHS last week, just months after DHS ordered a previously unthinkable 450 million rounds to supply and train their roughly 20,000 agents.

That is 1.2 billion rounds so far this year, for a single domestic law enforcement agency with just 20,000 agents.

Want some perspective? According to the General Accounting Office (GAO), our armed forces are now using 1.8 billion rounds of small-arms ammunition a year.   In less than six months, DHS has ordered two thirds as much ammo as our entire military -- on a war footing -- uses in a single year.

Remember NOAA's assertion that its agents need 700-800 rounds each?

Now contrast that with DHS's 60,000 rounds per agent.

Then ask yourself why FOX News didn't?

The best case scenario (and I hope the most likely) is that someone in DHS has a brother-in-law that owns a bullet factory, and the citizens of this great nation are facing no more serious threat than another taxpayer funded pork dinner for some well-connected grifter.   Even then, citizens have a right to ask questions and the fourth estate should be fulfilling its sacred trust by seeking the answers to those questions instead of lying -- by gross omission -- and insulting the American public.

FOX News should be ashamed.

The DHS’ decision back in March to purchase of 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage prompted questions as to why the federal agency required such powerful bullets and in such large quantities merely for training purposes.

This was followed up by a more recent order for a further 750 million rounds of assorted ammunition, including bullets that can penetrate walls.

Legality
 
The Hague Convention of 1899, Declaration III, prohibited the use in international warfare of bullets that easily expand or flatten in the body.[3] This is often incorrectly believed to be prohibited in the Geneva Conventions, but it significantly predates those conventions, and is in fact a continuance of the St. Petersburg Declaration of 1868, which banned exploding projectiles of less than 400 grams, as well as weapons designed to aggravate injured soldiers or make their death inevitable.

NATO members do not use small arms ammunition that is prohibited by the Hague Convention.
 
Despite the ban on military use, hollow-point bullets are one of the most common types of civilian and police ammunition, due largely to the reduced risk of bystanders being hit by over-penetrating or ricocheted bullets, and the increased speed of incapacitation.

In many jurisdictions, even ones such as the United Kingdom, where expanding ammunition is generally prohibited, it is illegal to hunt certain types of game with ammunition that does not expand.[4][5] Some target ranges forbid full metal jacket ammunition, due to its greater tendency to damage metal targets and backstops.[6]
 
[edit] United States of America
 
The state of New Jersey prohibits the possession and use of hollow-point ammunition by private citizens, specifically in firearms carried outside the home, but with many exceptions.[7][8] See gun laws in New Jersey

Army OKs Hollow-Point Bullets
 —By Adam Weinstein
| Tue May. 18, 2010

Army Times today highlights a quiet but notable decision by the Army's top cop: Civilian and military police on US Army bases are now authorized to load their weapons with "jacketed hollow-point bullets."

These rounds—which are available for use by civilians in most US states but banned in international conflicts—feature a small depression cut into the slug's nose, usually filled with notched steel. As Army Times puts it, these modifications enable the rounds to "deform and fragment upon striking a hard-tissue target. Mushrooming into a larger diameter, the rounds create a larger wound cavity."
 
The reason for this policy shift? According to AT, the Army provost marshal general—Brig. General Colleen McGuire, the first woman to reach that post—issued the decision:

...after a gunman opened fire at the Pentagon in March and a deadly shooting spree at Fort Hood in November, and almost a year to the day after the fatal shootings at Camp Liberty, Iraq...The new policy, issued May 10, asserts installation police "require the tools necessary to secure our posts, camps, and stations from both internal and external active shooter threats."
 
Hollow-point munitions are already highly favored by civilian law enforcement agencies, such as the New York Police Department, which switched to the ammo in 1998. While the damage these munitions do to their target is devastating, they're also considered to be safer to bystanders, since their kinetic energy is lower, and they tend to lodge in whatever they hit directly, rather than passing through or ricocheting. (However, as Norman Siegel of the New York Civil Liberties Union asked in '98: What about when an innocent bystander—or another police officer—is what the bullet hits directly?)

The ultimate irony here is that the Army will now arm itself against internal threats with a munition that's illegal to use in war. The Hague Convention of 1899 bans any lawful combatant from using "bullets which expand or flatten easily in the human body, such as bullets with a hard envelope which does not entirely cover the core, or is pierced with incisions." That is to say, steel-jacketed hollow-points.
 
(It's also not obvious to me that hollow-point bullets would have made much difference when Sgt. John Russell killed five soldiers last May on Baghdad's Camp Liberty, a few hundred yards from me. For one thing, he was unloading on occupants of the base's combat stress control center—the one place on the military's sprawling Victory Base Complex where all the soldiers were unarmed. For another, Russell was armed with an M-16, a rifle that fires slugs at higher velocities and effective ranges than any handgun. While it's not impossible, taking down a rifle shooter with a pistol is tough and dangerous.)

If Assault Weapons Are Bad, Why Does Big Sis Want to Buy 7,000 of Them?


http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/01/26/if-assault-weapons-are-bad-why-does-the-dhs-want-to-buy-7000-of-them-for-personal-defense/
IF ‘ASSAULT WEAPONS’ ARE BAD…WHY DOES DHS WANT TO BUY 7,000 OF THEM FOR ‘PERSONAL DEFENSE’?

The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to acquire 7,000 5.56x45mm NATO “personal defense weapons” (PDW) — also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians.

The solicitation, originally posted on June 7, 2012, comes to light as the Obama administration is calling for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines.

Citing a General Service Administration (GSA) request for proposal (RFP), Steve McGough of RadioViceOnline.com reports that DHS is asking for the 7,000 “select-fire” firearms because they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.” The term select-fire means the weapon can be both semi-automatic and automatic. Civilians are prohibited from obtaining these kinds of weapons.

The RFP describes the firearm as “Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) – 5.56x45mm NATO, select-fire firearm suitable for personal defense use in close quarters and/or when maximum concealment is required.” Additionally, DHS is asking for 30 round magazines that “have a capacity to hold thirty (30) 5.56x45mm NATO rounds.”

DHS Purchases 21.6 Million More Rounds of Ammunition
Federal agency has now acquired enough bullets to wage 30 year war
 
Paul Joseph Watson
 Infowars.com
February 7, 2013

The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing for civil unrest.

A solicitation posted yesterday on the Fed Bid website details how the bullets are required for the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico.
...

Such massive quantities of ammo purchases have stoked fears that the agency is preparing for some kind of domestic unrest. In 2011, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano directed Immigration and Customs Enforcement to prepare for a mass influx of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people.
...
While Americans are being browbeaten with rhetoric about the necessity to give up semi-automatic firearms in the name of preventing school shootings, the federal government is arming itself to the teeth with both ammunition and guns. Last September, the DHS purchased no less than 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, labeling them “Personal Defense Weapons.”

Tried to buy ammo lately?  Many people can’t find what they need, or what they find is very expensive.  Standard .223 FMJ is selling for more than a buck a round at some places – and that’s when you can find it.  Welcome to the 2013 ammo shortage.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/02/16/ammunition-shortage/1919321/
Gun dealers report shortages of ammunition
February 18, 2013

Gun shops are running low on ammunition from a run by customers fearful of potential gun-control legislation, according to gun retailers and customers.

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.

...
The run on ammunition comes amid Internet discussion about recent purchases of ammunition by the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration.

Homeland Security solicited bids for up to 1.1 billion rounds of ammunition for over the next five years, but agency spokesman Marsha Catron says purchases may not run that high, and that most of it would go to required training for about 130,000 armed federal agents in various agencies. The DHS ammunition purchases have been steady since 2009.

Last year, after the Social Security Administration solicited bids for 174,000 rounds of .357 ammunition, the agency got so many questions from the public about why it needed that powerful of a bullet that its inspector general's office put out a statement explaining why.

The Social Security Administration has 295 armed agents that protect offices around the country, and that ammunition is standard issue for the arms they carry on the job, the agency said.

"Our special agents need to be armed and trained appropriately," read the Social Security statement. "They not only investigate allegations of Social Security fraud, but they also are called to respond to threats against Social Security offices, employees and customers."

Bid winner for the Homeland Security ammunition was ATK Armament Systems, a division of Alliant Technosystems Inc., and a major supplier of guns and ammunition for the military.

 According to a IBISWorld, a market analyst, ATK Armament is expected to post a 10% increase in revenue, to $1.7 billion, in 2013.

"While most Americans have cut back on their purchases of cars, clothing and other luxuries … gun enthusiasts are working themselves into a frenzy over what another four years under the Obama administration may hold for gun laws,'' IBISWorld reported in October. "As a result, they are purchasing firearms and ammunition at record rates.''

This is getting a little creepy.
According to one estimate, since last year the Department of Homeland Security has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm.

DHS also purchased 2,700 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles (MRAP).


Modern Survival Blog reported:

The Department of Homeland Security (through the U.S. Army Forces Command) recently retrofitted 2,717 of these ‘Mine Resistant Protected’ vehicles for service on the streets of the United States.

Although I’ve seen and read several online blurbs about this vehicle of late, I decided to dig slightly deeper and discover more about the vehicle itself.

In one of my posts in the link I provided in my post above, the magic number of MRAPS that were scheduled to be shipped to Iraq in '07 was 2700. Now just in case you have to scratch your head on this, chances are, the units that are no longer needed in Iraq will make their way "home" and doubtless, we will be double charged for them. I have said for years that these foreign wars are Just the testing ground for the globalist war against the American people... Washington's Dream...

September 11, 2001 was the opening salvo in the reinstitution of the hot war by the "Empire" against the cause of liberty... DHS is not only unconstitutional, it is a tentacled subterfuge government set up in direct opposition to the American republic and everything it stands for. It is worse than King George, the East India Company, Vladamir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, and Adolph Hitler all rolled into one. Why...? Because we wrongly and idiotically think it is OURS!!!!

Cities continue to get ‘tanks’ they don’t need in
nationwide police militarization trend



By Madison Ruppert

Editor of End the Lie

Last month I reported on how Georgia law enforcement agencies have acquired a massive arsenal of military-grade vehicles and weapons through the Department of Defense. Unfortunately, it’s far from isolated.

Many law enforcement agencies acquire military equipment through the Pentagon’s 1033 program. Police have also acquired military robots through the DoD but they have other ways to get their hands on armored surveillance vehicles and armored personnel carriers as well.

Indeed, the Department of Homeland Security gave the city of Keene, New Hampshire, with a population of less than 25,000, $285,933 to buy an armored counter-attack vehicle called a BearCat, according to Radley Balko.

Keene has had a whopping three murders since 1999 according to City Data and according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the city lied about the need for the tank-like vehicle built by Lenco Industries, Inc.


(Image credit: The Brain Toad/Flickr)

The ACLU points out that a Keene City Councilmember actually admitted that the city lied about their need for the BearCat to DHS.

“Our application talked about the danger of domestic terrorism, but that’s just something you put in the grant application to get the money,” the councilmember said, according to the ACLU. “What red-blooded American cop isn’t going to be excited about getting a toy like this? That’s what it comes down to.”

AJ mentioned "RED TERROR" today .... they needed alot of bullets for that

I have been seeing many comparisons of late Globally to the Bolshevik take over of Russia ... dehumanization , disarming the populace, Food as a weapon, gulags (refugee centers) concentration camps....

From a Catholic perspective but very interesting:
The Rulers of Russia - American Edition - by Rev Denis Fahey - 1938

The truth about Lenin and the Bolsheviks

The Black Book of Communism

THE RED TERROR IN RUSSIA

THE RED TERROR IN RUSSIA
BY SERGEY PETROVICH MELGOUNOV


I WAS in Russia during the first five years of the Bolshevist regime, but contrived to leave that country during the October of 1922.  Scarcely had I broken my journey at Warsaw before I found myself confronted with a question involving one of the most complex psychological and socio-ethical problems of our day.

For, as I was sitting in a co-operative cafe run by some Polish ladies, the lady who was serving me with coffee suddenly put to me the question :
" Are you a Russian straight from Russia ? "
" Yes—I am a Russian."
" Then pray tell me how it is that no one there seems willing to assassinate Lenin and Trotsky ? "
...

At first the corpses were disposed of by dumping them into the ancient Genoese wells ; but in time even these wells became filled up, and the condemned had to be marched out into the country during the daytime (ostensibly, " to work in the mines ") and there made to dig huge graves before daylight should fail, and then be locked into sheds for an hour or two, and, with the fall of dusk, stripped except for the little crosses around their necks, and shot.
...
Again, a railway workers' rebellion in Ekaterinoslav had, as a sequel, a list of "fifty-one" victims, which means, probably, that the true number was considerably larger. Indeed, we read in Z. U. Arbatov's reminiscences, entitled Ekaterinoslav, 1917-1920,4 that after 200 workmen had been arrested, and fifty sentenced to execution at once, the rest were, later, and by night, conveyed in two motor-lorries (the date being June 2) to a spot on the river Dnieper
where, with a machine-gun trained upon them from behind, the whole were so shot that their bodies fell into the water
, to be carried away by the current, and only a few were left stranded on the margin. And later more railway employees were sentenced and executed by the All-Ukrainian Che-Ka at Kharkov
...

By the winter of 1920 [he wrote] the number of provinces  included within the R.S.F.S.R. was fifty-two, and they had fifty-two Che-Kas, and fifty-two special branches, and fifty-two provincial  revolutionary tribunals. And then there existed all the swarm of regional-transport Che-Kas, railway tribunals, tribunals of " internal defence" (the " Internal Service Force "), and circuit sessional courts— these last being commissions periodically sent from the centre to supervise local mass shootings. And there were the special branches and special tribunals attached to the several armies (which, again, numbered sixteen), and the special branches and tribunals attached to the several divisions of those armies.

Hence, in all, we may assume that there existed fully a thousand torture chambers—or, if we take into account also the activities of the district Che-Kas at that period, more than a thousand; considerably more [ Fusion Centers? ].

And later, as the R.S.F.S.R. still further increased the number of its provinces (Siberia and the Crimea and the Far East becoming overrun), that increase must have been accompanied by an increase in the number of the torture chambers.

Whence, taking the Bolshevists' own totals for 1920 (though during that year no real decrease of terrorism set in— merely it was that acts perpetrated by terrorism began to be reported less frequently), we can fix upon a certain definite figure for the daily average of killing per torture centre, and see thence that the curve of shootings rose from one to fifty as regards the larger centres, and from one to one hundred as regards regions in recent occupation by the Red Army. And since terroristic outbursts always were periodical in their outbreaking and
their decreasing, a modest estimate of the average will work out at five persons per diem
...
IN its general report on Bolshevist activities during the years 1918 and 1919 the Denikin Commission has stated that the number of victims during the two years totalled 1,700,000; and, seeing that the materials collected by that Commission have not yet been fully, or anything like fully, examined, and I myself have confined my figures exclusively to deaths resultant from " legal " or "administrative" action, to deaths following upon sentence passed directly by a revolutionary authority, there can be little doubt that the actual total of the Terror's victims has been incomparably larger.
...

I believe what we are seeing today is the deployment of a global scientific red terror.

  • 'Cause it's a revolution for your mind...K?!
Yep, big time... but it will not be a civil war if we do our part... it will be a war against a foriegn agressor on our home soil... oh there will be tories, banker/royalty loving traitors, but by and large it will be the American Revolution 2.0

200 of this type of vehicle are slated for each state... Thanks DHS, how thoughtful of you...(sic)

Anyone still asleep...?

MRAPS anyone...

(MRAP and crew... set up for... Crowd Control?)

interests..."
~Ayn Rand


JT, the image you refer to, the MRAP with the "fence", the fence is actually made to cause a rocket propelled grendade to detonate before it can impact an armored surface, thereby preventing it from sending its molten copper through the armor as effectively. Just some insight into the equipment you refenced...
The resistance starts here. Unfortunately, the entire thing is moving beyond the intellectual infowar. I vow I will not make an overt rush at violent authority, until authority makes it's violent rush at me and you. I will not falter, I will not die in this course. For that is how they win.

Alarming isn't it? When are people going to wake up and smell the gunpowder?

This is a petition I began because of the ammunition shortage in America. It is on the White House website under "We the People". Please read it and if you agree, sign it and pass it on to as many like minded people you can think of. Your rights depend on it. It is my believe that the weapons ban is a Red Herring and we are being disarmed without constitutional violation by the depletion of the ammunition supply to the general public. Even if you don't agree, thank you for taking the time to read this E-mail and I encourage you all to make inquiries and look up some of the staggering facts about this subject on your own. Googling "Government Stockpiling of Ammunition 2013" will get you started.

The petition requires 150 signatures before it will be open for public view on the White House website. It requires 100,000 signatures to be addressed publicly by the President of the United States. The deadline for achieving that goal is is April 7th 2013. A copy of this E-mail has been sent to the house and senate representatives for the state of Oregon.
Wishing you all good health and happiness,

Donnie

In one of my posts in the link I provided in my post above, the magic number of MRAPS that were scheduled to be shipped to Iraq in '07 was 2700. Now just in case you have to scratch your head on this, chances are, the units that are no longer needed in Iraq will make their way "home" and doubtless, we will be double charged for them. I have said for years that these foreign wars are Just the testing ground for the globalist war against the American people... Washington's Dream...

September 11, 2001 was the opening salvo in the reinstitution of the hot war by the "Empire" against the cause of liberty... DHS is not only unconstitutional, it is a tentacled subterfuge government set up in direct opposition to the American republic and everything it stands for. It is worse than King George, the East India Company, Vladamir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, and Adolph Hitler all rolled into one. Why...? Because we wrongly and idiotically think it is OURS!!!!
