Arms build-up continues as Congress demands answers

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.
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.
Although the DHS has attempted to explain its mammoth purchase of ammunition by claiming the bullets are being acquired in bulk to save money and that they are for training purposes only, this has been disputed by reputable voices such as former Marine Richard Mason, who 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.”
Hollow point bullets are almost twice as expensive as full metal jackets, therefore the DHS’ explanation that it is buying huge quantities in bulk to “save money” doesn’t make sense.
As we reported yesterday, concerns about the apparent arms build-up are growing, with retired United States Army Captain Terry M. Hestilow sending a letter to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) warning that the ammo purchases represent “a bold threat of war by that agency (DHS), and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America.”
Questions from members of Congress about why the federal agency is buying up ammo, exacerbating shortages across the country, have been met with silence.
- Kansas Congressman Timothy Huelscamp said last week that threats should be made to withdraw funding from the DHS if it didn’t explain why it was purchasing so many bullets, remarking, “They have no answer for that question. They refuse to answer to answer that.”
- Earlier this month, New Jersey Congressman Leonard Lance said, “Congress has a responsibility to ask Secretary Napolitano as to exactly why these purchases have occurred,” signaling his intention to get answers.
- Californian Congressman Doug LaMalfa and 14 of his House colleagues have written a letter to the Department of Homeland Security asking if the purchases are, “being conducted in a manner that strategically denies the American people access to ammunition.”
Although members of Congress are treating the matter with the seriousness it deserves, the mainstream and leftist media have attempted to ridicule the entire issue as a conspiracy theory, with Atlantic Wire even suggesting that the story had its origins in a debunked email, a report that completely failed to even mention the admitted fact that the DHS had purchased around 2 billion bullets.
While the DHS continues to purchase bullets in large quantities, police departments have been forced to barter amongst each other in a desperate scramble to meet their ammo needs.
The simple solution is to defund the DHF, which is only there to molest children and other people. Has the DHS stopped even 1 terrorist?
No. Not a one.
they're an appendage, need to cut the head off the snake, then it will die. People need to quit supporting this illegal system entirely. These money junkies have a 3 billion dollar a day habit, cut off their funds and the machine will self implode in a matter of months.
It is not the system. It is the fault of the asshgole American people who vote like they are taking a dump behind a tree on a camping trip. No one else. The CFRtv and the Rothschild Associated Press are NOT the word of God. In fact, the SCOTUS handed down a decision a year or two back that even if news agencies collect money for their publications, they are under NO legal obligation to tell the truth.
Lobotomy. Connecticut. 1977-1979. Sounds like the Obummer and The Ministry of Unnatural Acts is packing more personal baggage than could be predicted by any but the CFRtv and the Rothschild's Associated Press. Since congress is too busy sucking and mewling for mother to do their job, a different entity with constitutional clout must be the sane one and dissolve congress for arrests and reelections after locking up the Executive Branch. Sly Richard Nixon invented the 'Executive Order' out off desperation while losing his presidency. The concept of an 'Executive Order' being above congress instead of for expeditious action has come about since. Now we have this bunch, so filled with inexplicable hate for human rights to be free of oppression that they can not openly express it out of personal shame and confusion.They need 2 billion rounds of killer hollow point ammunition(which I have hunted with:messy) to strike fear into all who will not submit their genitals and flirt with Napolitano's bunch. Since the DHS and TSA continue to let the Mossad agents filming the 9-11 attacks on the WTCs to roam free in America, and allow the domestic perpetrators to run free as well, I can only consider them self-indulgent molesters and traitors to the flag and people of these here United States of America. A Goddamned donkey can figure this out. We have had sex offenders in as president for the past seven terms in a row. At least two of these pigs engaged in all-out satanic rituals. If your friends won't man up, ask them to donate their children at the nearest TSA or DHS Ministry of Unnatural Acts office for 'training' and 'homeland security'. Hitler tried to force marriage to himself on his 13 year old niece. When she resisted, they killed her. This bunch, likewise assembled by the 'shadow government' illuminati, are just as sick. I used to get drunk, but I could not possibly make this shit up.
