More footage of military vehicles being delivered surfaces online
Mar 25, 2013
Footage of hundreds of armored trucks, similar to ones reportedly purchased recently by the Department Of Homeland Security has appeared online, raising more questions over their intended use.
The video was uploaded to YouTube last week by a user who stated that it was shot in the middle of the desert between Hackberry and Peach Springs, Arizona.
It shows hundreds of military style trucks loaded on to a train, presumably in the process of being delivered domestically for law enforcement or military purposes.
The video raises significant questions in the wake of reports that the Department of Homeland Security, headed by Janet Napolitano, recently purchased around 2,700 MRAP trucks that many believe are to be deployed to local law enforcement agencies around the country.
It is clear that the DHS does have fleets of armoured vehicles intended for use in the US.
Here is a demonstration video of such a vehicle by ICE agents:
Does the latest video show these same type of trucks in the process of being delivered?
The footage is the latest in a spate of similar videos to surface on the internet in recent months showing huge amounts of military equipment packed onto trains en route within the US.
As we reported today, the DHS’ mass arms build-up continues, with the report that the agency has bought another 360,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition to add to the roughly 2 billion bullets already bought over the past year.
Such stark activity with little to no background detail has prompted several Congressmen to ask the federal government for an explanation. According to some elected representatives, the DHS has refused to answer specific questions on the purchases, stating only that the ammunition is for “training purposes” over the next five years, and has been bulk ordered to save money.
Efforts by government media mouthpieces to dismiss the story have only caused it to become more viral.
The DHS has also purchased 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, as well as cementing 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. None of this has been addressed by the mainstream media.

Enola and Sir Knight,
One important and amusing thing I wanted to mention. Some of the trucks I work with are made by Navistar International Diesel. Thease are the people who make the MRAP armored vehicle. The DHS just purchased 2,700 MRAP's with the Maxforce diesel engine.
David Slew Goliath...
The best way to stop and MRAP vehicle is to make it drive real slow for a long time. That will foul up the DPF (diesel particulate filter) a piece of EPA mandated eviromental garbage. A clogged DPF can cause a check engine light and regen light to go off. If the vehicle does not go into regen mode at highway speed, or brought to dead stop to go into regen mode. The computer will derate the engine (engine power loss) and shut the engine down to be towed to a repair shop. Another big flaw is with EGR valve (exhuast gas relay) same EPA mandated garbage. EGR valves are failing all the time and its the biggest warrenty recall stuff we have.
The Maxforce engine in the MRAP platform is the worst diesel on the market. Poorly disigned low cost diesel thats prone to drop valves and have other failures.
One last thing thats kinda amusing. The A/C system is prone to failures on the Navistar International trucks. In other words, its gonna get kinda hot for the gestapo in black body armor in the MRAP.
If all 2,700 MRAP's are used at the same time for gun confiscation and to round up people for fema camps, I can almost guarentee that half of them will be broke down or in repair shop somewhere waiting to be hooked up to a computer and parts to be ordered to be fixed (this usually takes weeks)
All David's gotta do is walk and let Goliath follow. Goliath will choke on his own exhuast and come to a dead halt in the middle of the road.
...remember, these things are built by the lowest bidder ;)
I've been working on the railroad all the live long day.
In Germany when the radioactive issue was at its height - people stopped the trains.
You want to get their attention - want to raise the public awareness - then stop the trains.
Great this and that person filmed them - did anyone confirm (from a relative working for the railroad) where the train(s) were going? Wish for overseas but not with USA Police markings.
So let's get to work: we need train spotters, a few retired railroad workers to govern our procedures, some bright lawyers to seek injuctions blocking trains moving through local towns ("These trains have to be inspected for safety as they may be carying Live Ammo, your Honor") If that does nothing lay down on the tracks or park your old Heap cars on the crossings - after removing the tires and whatnot..
Make sure you have plenty of filming equipment and children at the scene. If this does nothing, well, I can imagine a few other avenues to follow. They have already labeled you all as T's so stop bellyaching and get to work
Or you can wait for them to Breakdown behind your house at 4 AM and then there's the Gentle Knock on the door to borrow a few tools........ RIGHT
We expect your report by 08:00
Did you contact or organise any Vet's on you area yet.. Yeh RIGHT..
We are Legion
My cousin works for Burlington Northern Santa Fe RR and he confirmed this shipment of 250 tanks and armored vehicles went through Albuquerque NM through Peachtree AZ and then on through Burbank California. Nothing was "off-loaded" it all went on to southern California.
