the thing is, you see all these upper middle class people, who hear this and think 'oh good, they are going to shoot the poor, umemployed people' and these fools are the ones being cavity searched at the airports, not the homeless.  

  The Bolsheviks wanted the upper middle class dead, because they are the bigger threat to their power.  The poor people are their slaves, the well to do are their mortal enemies.  The smarter you are, thet harder working you are,  the more effective a military leader you might be,  the deader you are.

Riot control guns raise concern in Spain
By Tom Burridge
 
BBC News, Madrid

Questions are being asked about the safety of police riot control weapons being used in Spain, an issue with implications for other EU states where street protests against austerity have turned violent in recent years.

Ester Quintana, 42, went to protest peacefully at a demonstration in Barcelona on 14 November.  Hours later she lay bleeding in the street. Something, suddenly, had struck her in the face. She is now blind in her left eye.

What hit Ms Quintana is the subject of a legal investigation.

The police in Barcelona insist they did not use rifles to fire rubber balls at protesters that night.

However they say that 40mm plastic rounds were fired from another weapon used by police in Catalonia, as demonstrations turned violent.
...
Ms Quintana's lawyer, Laia Serra, says there have been seven cases in Catalonia alone in the past three years when people lost an eye after being hit by projectiles fired by the police

Metropolitan Police 'stockpiling' plastic bullets
By Ed Davey
 BBC News, London

Police began "stockpiling" plastic bullets - responsible for fatalities in Northern Ireland - after the London riots, a BBC investigation suggests.

The month before last August's riots, the Metropolitan Police held just 700 baton rounds.

But by December 2011, the number had jumped more than 14 times to more than 10,024, a Freedom of Information request shows.

The Met claimed the rise in rounds was "appropriate".

Baton rounds have never been used to quell disorder on the mainland of the UK.

But an ex-Metropolitan Police commander told the BBC the huge rise suggested a change of policy on the weapons and an increased willingness to use them.

I do believe that laws are being broken and those politicians that are breaking them will continue to do so until they are they are voted out of office and held accountable for violating the very people they are elected to serve.

If our founding fathers had access to military grade weaponry, they would certainly have it. We are not talking about the guns we hunt with to put food on the table. We are talking about guns to protect ourselves against rioting looters and governments that would move to take our liberties away.

We are already being disarmed by the government's purchase of 1.6 Billion rounds of ammunition. 450 Million of which are hollow point bullets. They have cornered the market. In my area, ammunition prices have increased over 300% if you are lucky enough to find it at all. This in addition to 7,000+ fully automatic rifles and 2,700+ retro fitted MRAP's. None of these government purchases are for the military. They are for use on US soil. But if you are okay with the government using your tax dollars to stockpile all of this hardware for use against you, you are of course entitled to your opinion. At least for now.

  Big Sis Refuses to Answer Conress on Ammo Purchases


Speaking at CPAC with Infowars and We Are Change reporter, Luke Rudkowski, Congressman Timothy Huelscamp revealed this week that the Department of Homeland Security has refused to answer questions from “multiple” members of Congress regarding its recent purchase of huge amounts of weapons and ammunition.
“They have no answer for that question. They refuse to answer to answer that.” Huelscamp said.
“I’ve got a list of various questions of agencies about multiple things. Far from being the most transparent administration in the world, they are the most closed and opaque.” The Congressman added.
“They refuse to let us know what is going on, so I don’t really have an answer for that. Multiple members of Congress are asking those questions.” he added.
“It comes down to during the budget process, during the appropriations process, are we willing to hold DHS’s feet to the fire?”
“We’re going to find out… I say we don’t fund them ’til we get an answer. Those type of things really challenge Americans. They are worried about this administration.” Huelscamp urged.

It is comforting to see that people are in fact beginning to wake up and smell the gun powder. In Newtown Ct., the applications for CCW permits have surged as they have all across the U.S. People are tired of being lied to and are taking it upon themselves to make personal protection there responsibility and obligation.

The bad part of this is that the government knows this and they are buying up all of the ammunition possible to keep it out of the hands of folks like you and I. What good is a gun without ammunition? It becomes a club and nothing more. May I remind everyone that it is our tax dollars being used to purchase this battery of fully automatic weapons, hollow point bullets, armored vehicles and drones for be used against the citizens of this country in our own back yards. These are non military purchases.
I started a petition on the White House website that I hope everyone here reads and signs. We need approximately 30 more signatures before it is publicly posted. Freedom is an ongoing battle. Let’s give them pause and put the power back with the people it was intended for.

They refuse to give Congressmen an explanation about their (own words) purchase of 2.2 billion target practice bullets.     Then, unbelievably, along with the target practice bullets - there are the
target practice posters!

Every 9-month pregnant American Mom deserves an explanation.
Every 10-year-old boy deserves an explanation.
Every grandmother who wears a robe and takes a shower, deserves an explanation.
Every grandfather deserves an explanation.
Every veteran deserves an explanation.
Every single American who knows a person represented in those posters - deserves an explanation.

And *my tax money* pays for this DHS operating openly in My Country?

Police Departments Beg And Barter For Ammo While DHS Buys Up 1.6 Billion Rounds In Past Year
 March 22, 2013
By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr

The nationwide shortage of ammunition has left many police departments scrambling to get their hands on the necessary rounds - with some even bartering among each other.
 
Meanwhile, Rep. Timothy Huelskamp (R-Kansas) says the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to respond to multiple members of Congress asking why DHS bought more than 1.6 billion rounds in the past year.
 
Police Chief Cameron Arthur of Jenks, Oklahoma says, "Ammunition and assault weapons in general have skyrocketed...In addition to the fact, not only is it a lot more expensive, but the time to get it could be six months to a year, or in some cases even longer."
 
Arthur says he is waiting on an order placed last October and that many departments have begun to trade and barter with each other because of the high demand.
....
Police Chief John Mabry in Marinette, Wisconsin says, "Ammo is expensive and lot tougher to get. People don't have it in stock and it's back-ordered."
 
His colleague, Menominee Chief, Brett Botbyl agrees: "We're looking at a four to nine-month wait."

    DHS Denies Massive Ammunition Purchase


   

By ELIZABETH FLOCK
March 22, 2013 RSS Feed  Print

Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., says the Department of Homeland Security was planning to buy 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the next five years.
The Department of Homeland Security responded Friday to questions from Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., about why the agency was allegedly planning to buy some 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the next five years.

DHS told Whispers it regularly fills all of its goods and services requirements at one time because it's cheaper for the agency, and that the 1.6 billion number was misleading because the language of DHS's purchase said it would need "up to" a certain amount.

One solicitation by the agency—for training centers and law enforcement personnel—was for "up to" 750 million rounds of training ammunition over the next five years, DHS spokesman Peter Boogaard told Whispers.

    DHS Won't Answer Congress On Billion Bullet Purchase


Bullet Buys: Fifteen members of Congress have written a letter to the Department of Homeland Security demanding to know why the federal agency is buying so many rounds of ammunition. We'd like to know too.

Freshman California Republican Doug LaMalfa and 14 of his House colleagues, who signed on to his March 5 letter, are asking the Department of Homeland Security to explain why it is buying 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition of various calibers. They aren't happy with explanations provided so far in the press by lower-level officials, answers meant to debunk "unfounded" concerns.

As we have noted, DHS has been buying lots of ammo, enough by one calculation to fight the equivalent of a 24-year Iraqi War.

Peggy Dixon, spokeswoman for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Ga., told the Associated Press that the training center and others like it run by the Homeland Security Department use as many as 15 million rounds every year, mostly on shooting ranges and in training exercises.

Government Cover-up of Ammo Buys Implodes
                    
Silence, secrecy and shoddy attempts at debunking the facts have led to Congressional scrutiny

Steve Watson
Infowars.com
Mar 22, 2013

The failure on behalf of the federal government to provide any explanation for why the Department of Homeland Security is arming to the teeth with high powered weapons and billions of hollow point bullets, as well as crude efforts by mainstream media mouthpieces to debunk the war-like preparations, have backfired massively, propelling the story to a viral status.
As we reported today, 15 Congressmen have written a letter to the DHS demanding to know why the federal agency is buying so many rounds of ammunition and whether the purchases are part of a deliberate attempt to restrict supply to the American people.
Big Sis has remained silent on the issue, refusing to answer questions from reporters and even from multiple elected representatives, about the ammo buys.
The continued huge orders for weapons and bullets have prompted attendances at gun shows to explode, as gun store owners say they are having to contend with significant national shortages.
Efforts to portray the very real stockpiling by the federal agency as a conspiracy theory have fallen flat on their face, and have only served to further highlight how suspect the DHS’ actions are.
When Media Matters and Raw Story both recently attacked Fox Business host Lou Dobbs for daring to raise the issue on his show, it quickly became clear that neither had any prevailing  counter point, and were dismissing the facts only by regurgitating a glib statement of a single DHS official.
Media Matters, which has been documented to be little more than an Obama administration mouthpiece, reported that, “The claim that DHS bought a 1.6 billion bullet stockpile is also misleading,” while simultaneously admitting that “DHS did buy 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition.”
The source of the claim that concerns over the bullet buys are a conspiracy theory or “misleading,” is a February 14 Associated Press report which did not conduct any actual investigation into why the DHS was purchasing the ammo, instead regurgitating a statement from DHS official Peggy Dixon, who claimed the bullets were bought in bulk to save money and were for training purposes only.
As we have tirelessly noted, however, hollow point bullets are completely unsuitable for training purposes because they cost significantly more money compared to standard firing range bullets. In one fell swoop, this fact debunks claims that the agency was attempting to save money argument and is intending to use the ammo in training exercises.
Military veterans and ammunition experts have also confirmed that they have never used hollow points for training purposes, expressing confusion at why the DHS is buying up so many of them.
When Atlantic Wire and Politico also attempted to debunk the issue, they completely ignored the DHS’ admitted purchases of  close to 2 billion bullets, instead focusing only on the Social Security Administration’s purchase of 174,000 bullets, as if it were somehow proof that the DHS is not involved in stockpiling at all.
Snopes.com, a site that profits from debunking anything and everything, also failed to even address the DHS bullet purchases, again pointing only to SSA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration purchases.
Apparently, the mainstream media has failed to grasp that concerns about government activity cannot be “debunked” by merely repeating glib statements issued by government officials, particularly given the amount of times the DHS has been caught lying about other issues such as TSA body scanners and most recently with Janet Napolitano’s erroneous claim that the sequester debate was causing delays in airports.
Amidst all the so-called “debunkings” of the bullet buys, the aforementioned media sources have also conveniently omitted details regarding the DHS’ purchase of 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, as well as a $2 million dollar relationship with a contractor that recently had to apologize for producing shooting targets of pregnant women, children and elderly gun owners depicted in residential settings.
The DHS has also been busy buying large supplies of body armor, leading to shortages. Last year, the agency put out an urgent order for “riot gear” in anticipation of civil unrest. The agency has also ordered bullet-proof checkpoint booths and hired hundreds of new security guards to protect government buildings over the course of the last 12 months. There have also been reported purchases of around 2,700 armored trucks.
None of this has been addressed by the mainstream media. Government silence, sustained secrecy, and media mouthpieces declaring it isn’t real has only served to implode an already shoddy cover-up attempt, further shining a light on the secretive prepping actions of Big Sis and her army of goons.

DHS To Buy 360,000 More Rounds of Hollow Point Ammunition
Arms build-up continues as Congress demands answers
 
Paul Joseph Watson
 Infowars.com
March 25, 2013

While the Department of Homeland Security continues to ignore members of Congress demanding to know why the federal agency is engaged in an apparent arms build-up, the DHS has just announced it plans to purchase another 360,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition to add to the roughly 2 billion bullets already bought over the past year.
 

The DHS has now purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammo.
 
A solicitation on the Federal Business Opportunities website details the DHS’ plan to purchase 360,000 rounds of “Commercial leaded training ammo (CLTA) Pistol .40 caliber 165 grain, jacketed hollow point.” The bullets are to be delivered to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, the same destination for 240,000 hollow point rounds which were purchased only last month.

  THINK PROGRESS should change their name to THINK LYING.



Obama Front Group Labels Big Sis Bullet Buys ‘Debunked Conspiracy Theory’
    
               
Think Progress fails to address fundamental flaw in DHS’ explanation
Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
March 26, 2013
The George Soros-funded Obama campaign front group Think Progress has responded to concerns about a DHS arms build-up by claiming the whole issue is a ‘debunked conspiracy theory’.

John Podesta. Image: YouTube
In an article entitled, OOPS: Fox News Peddles Conspiracy Theory It Already Debunked, the website claims that the, “DHS justified the purchases in a letter to lawmakers,” by explaining, “that it regularly purchases ammunition in bulk to save money and noted that “the 1.6 billion number was misleading because the language of DHS’s purchase said it would need ‘up to’ a certain amount.”
The article then quotes Fox News’ Charles Krauthammer who claimed that, “the amount of ammunition (purchased by the DHS) is less than in previous years.”
However, while the DHS’ own figures show ammo purchases of just over 100 million rounds purchased in the previous two years, over the last 12 months the agency has committed to purchasing at least 1.6 billion bullets. Even if you spread this figure out over the next five years (and discount additional purchases which are happening on a monthly basis), it still amounts to 320 million rounds a year – a threefold increase on previous years.
By attempting to debunk the matter as a conspiracy theory, Think Progress has followed in the footsteps of other news outlets who dismissed the whole story as a non-issue by citing the glib statement of a single DHS official, who claimed the bullets were being bought in bulk to save money and were for training purposes only.
However, as the Think Progress report fails to address, the notion that the ammo is being purchased in bulk to “save money” is completely erroneous since most of the bullets are hollow point rounds, which are almost twice as expensive as regular firing range bullets and therefore unsuitable for training purposes.
As former Marine Richard Mason told reporters with WHPTV News in Pennsylvania earlier this month, “We never trained with hollow points, we didn’t even see hollow points my entire four and a half years in the Marine Corps.”
Not a single one of the “debunking” pieces has even addressed this fundamental flaw in the DHS’ explanation for why it is buying ammo in bulk. Either the DHS is lying about its claim that the bullets are for training purposes only, or the agency is wasting tens of millions of dollars of taxpayer money while simultaneously releasing illegal immigrants claiming it is broke.
In addition, if the number of bullets being purchased by the DHS is normal, as Think Progress claims, then why would the DHS need to justify its bulk purchase of them in the first place? To concede that the bullet buys represent “bulk” purchases is to concede that they are being acquired in unusually large quantities.
Furthermore, the claim that the DHS is nowhere near approaching its “up to” figure of 1.6 billion bullets purchased is contradicted by the fact that large ammo purchases are being delivered to the same locations consecutively. For example, last month the agency bought 240,000 hollow point rounds to be sent to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, the same destination for an additional purchase of 360,000 bullets which was announced last week.
As we have previously documented, Think Progress claims that it is a “nonpartisan organization,” and yet is bankrolled by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a think tank headed by Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff John D. Podesta , who was also head of Barack Obama’s presidential transition team after the 2008 election.
According to SourceWatch, “CAP’s Progressive Media project emerged as a major communications war room on behalf of Obama’s domestic and foreign policy agenda and CAP became a strong advocate for escalation in Afghanistan. Progressive Media is run through the Center for American Project Action Fund, the more political 501(c)4 arm of CAP. It coordinates closely with the Common Purpose Project, an effort to create message discipline among the pro-Obama organizations, with a direct tie to the White House.”
According to Center for American Progress director Jennifer Palmieri, the organization is focused around “driving the White House’s message and agenda.”
Think Progress is also closely allied with Media Matters under the umbrella of Podesta’s Progressive Media propaganda campaign. An investigation by the Daily Caller last year revealed that Media Matters is an Obama administration front that strategizes with the White House on a weekly basis on how to influence and direct the news media.
Though the Center for American Progress is shy about revealing its financial backers, according to SourceWatch, no less than 58 foundations have donated over $15 million dollars since 2003, as well as corporations and elitist philanthropists such as George Soros, who donated $3 million for “general support” in 2006.
Given that Think Progress is a little more than a PR firm for the Obama administration which routinely invents its own conspiracy theories in order to denigrate its ideological adversaries, it’s unsurprising that the organization is once again running defense for the federal government.

Big Sis Ignores Congressman’s Demand For Briefing on Bullet Buys
“Congress deserves an answer” on huge ammo purchases
 
Paul Joseph Watson
 Infowars.com
March 28, 2013
 
Janet Napolitano has ignored a letter written by New Jersey Congressman Leonard Lance calling for the Department of Homeland Security chief to attend a congressional briefing and provide an explanation as to why the DHS has committed to purchasing more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the last year
...
Over a week after the letter was sent, Lance’s office has still not received a response, similar to how 15 other members of Congress were stonewalled by the DHS when they demanded to know if the huge bullet purchases were an attempt by the federal agency to restrict ammunition supplies.
 
Instead of a formal explanation, the federal agency released a glib statement to the media claiming the amount of ammunition purchased was not abnormal, that the bullets were bought in bulk “because it’s cheaper for the agency,” and that the rounds were for training purposes only.

Not one more word about "gun control" should be uttered by any pro-Constitution member in Congress unless it comes firmly attached to 1) Fast + Furious, and 2) the obvious need for control of the federal guns being aimed at us. It's absurd for them to just continue business as usual. Like Alex says, it is time to stop playing defense. It's time to stop being polite and "reasonable" with people who commit mass murder without blinking an eye.... Then surround themselves with children and play savior.

Some are talking impeachment, and that's fully justified, except the next 5 guys in line are just as corrupt. The whole system is a racketeering-influenced and corrupt organization. Really, the whole thing just needs to be shut down.

At least let's work today to remind people about Waco and OKC. Everyone can make their own conclusions about this week's attacks.

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...

Thanks for the clarification on this, GCG, much appreciated.

This bombing is all a ruse, a terrorist plot hatched by the FBI and DHS, to clamp the Iron Fist of Martial Law around the entire "disarmed" North-East!!!

this jewish senator is now proposing to regulate gunpowder, not sure if he's doing this just to piss off anti-semite right wingers or what, don't think it's a serious bill.

  Anyways, all the survivalists are talking about how they can make their own gunpowder and stuff from salt peter that's probably hard to do, you gotta get the grains the right size and all that, not really sure how easy that would be.

     Making smokeless powder would definitely be sort of difficult, I believe that is the type of gunpowder you want to use if you make your own ammo.

Oh, so now it's the Jews, huh. Give me a break! I'm also a Jew and I'm getting sick of hearing this. If you're joking, please say so. This is the second post today that wants to link being a Jew with all this shit. Yes, you have free speech. So do I, and I'd like to see some FACTS, please. :-*

  Uh, senator Lautenberger really did propose a bill to regulate gunpowder, and he's a big fat jew.

  Yes I'm just teasing you, out of loving playfullness.  He is not that big or fat, jews are not all big and fat.  I do not hate fat people either, I am teasing fat people because I love them.

      I think he's proposing a background check for people wanting to buy gunpowder which I don't even consider nefarious or diabolical.

Sorry, but there's just sooo much crap about Jews supposedly controlling the world on the web, and it just gets to me sometimes. Actually, I didn't know he was a Jew. Still, except for maybe Israel, does it really matter? He could be a jerk, probably is. Personally, I have no respect for any but local officials, and here in NH we live cheek-by-jowl so we can keep them in check. Once they get to Washington, they're bought. No offense. Just a bit touchy today, I guess.  :-[

It does matter when so many of them are in OUR government and have duel citienship with America and Israel.

Anyway, didn't Napolitano get off too easy when she answered questions to Congress? Did they even ask about the tanks?

Anyone, and I MEAN anyone, with dual citizenship should be prohibited from voting in this country and from running for office. I hate dual citizenship! Far too many American Jews have been brainwashed by Israel that it's okay, but Israel is NOT America's friend and they will use Jews (like Jonathon Pollard, who is a creep and DESERVES to rot in prison) to further their ends. That said, I fear for Americans and Israelis who have no idea what's going on. Napolitano a Jew? Can you verify that, because I always assumed her to be of Italian-Catholic extraction. Yes, there are Italian Jews, but HER? God forbid!

from drudge: Sequester sqeeze:

Sequester, tight budgets means DHS buying less ammunition

Tight budgets are forcing the Homeland Security Department to buy less ammunition, two top officials are slated to tell Congress on Thursday as the House oversight committee continues investigating the Obama administration’s ammunition purchases.
 
Despite the potential for cuts, the department still reported stockpiling more than 260 million rounds of ammunition as of November 2012 — a two-year supply, according to information provided to the committee ahead of a hearing on Thursday.
...

DHS officials deny allegations the department is ‘hoarding’ bullets

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reserves the right to buy up to 750 million rounds of ammunition over the next five years and currently has “two years worth” of ammo on hand, or around 247 million rounds in its inventory, the department’s top procurement official said Thursday during congressional testimony.
 
DHS has already purchased around 41 million rounds of ammunition this year alone, Nick Nayak, DHS’s chief procurement officer, said during an oversight hearing on Capitol Hill. Some $37 million in taxpayer dollars will be spent on the purchase of ammunition in the entirety of fiscal year 2013.
 
Several lawmakers on the House Oversight Committee said they were surprised by the requisition and asked why DHS has been purchasing such large quantities of ammo for its 72,000 officers, most of who rarely discharge their weapons in the line of duty.
 
DHS allocates anywhere from 1,300 to 1,600 rounds of ammunition per officer, or around 1,000 more rounds than is used by the average Army officer. Lawmakers called this excessive and unneeded, particularly as average American citizens face widespread ammunition shortages.
...
DHS officers “used what seems to be an exorbitant amount of ammo,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), chairman of the House’s Subcommittee on National Security. “The federal government’s massive procurement of ammunition” is troubling.
 
Rep. Thomas Massie (R., Ky.) said DHS has stockpiled nearly one bullet for every American citizen.
...
You’re telling me you have to have 3,400 rounds [per officer available] because it saves money?” Chaffetz responded.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

 Yup, I get the drift DHS-Nappy & Holder blood oathed.
 
Please bear in mind all of our folks in a position of authority or uniformed/Miiltary/ Fed,State, local cops etc  are not NWO sucklings, there exists a % who are with us. I am convinced a lot more than is spoken of, ask yourself if at this moment it would be of benefit for them to step forward ( be exposed) giving the fact they need the people to be aware before they make a move.  Citizens who are now silent will awake when their comfort zone is crumbling, inside truthers will keep their heads down and react only when the citizens come to the undeniable conclusion we in harms way.
 We acknoweldge the abomination, those who refuse to listen, those who are ingnorant to the facts, the psuedo pats, etc will soon enough have no choose but to face the reality. In short we are not the minuscule %.

Hey Momster,

My best friends are Jews (no, really), I have a Jewish name, and my Boss is a Jewish rabbi ... I have nothing against "you people"   ;)  but I think people's tribal self-proclaimed  religious or tribal background is always a factor in their decisions and needs to be duly noted. that goes for members of my tribe as well. I am one of the loudest critics of black people, and black misleaders, you will ever meet. People hide all kinds of nefarious things under cover of tribal identity, religion, and victimhood.
