Newsweek cover to Obama “Hit the road Barack” Stratfor Global Intelligence: In Egypt, a Military Takeover Is Not Imminent → Obama DHS Purchases 2,700 Light-Armored Tanks to Go With Their 1.6 Billion Bullet Stockpile Posted on March 4, 2013 Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot. In 2007 the MRAP cost just over $500,000.
With improvements to the vehicle expect the price to rise for Homeland Security’s questionable purchase. MRAP_Cat_1_navistar M1-Cat 1 Navista At minimum the cost of said purchase would be about $1.35 million.
Weren’t these fools talking about the “Sequester” last week? In the video below, the commander of one of these videos explains why they need this type of vehicle to “serve warrants.” Apparently they are preparing for a serious push back from patriots that refuse to play their game. DHS even released a video on their newly purchased MRAPs. Via Pat Dollard: That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
H,T Jim Kroft, 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). homeland-security-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. The new DHS sanctioned ‘Street Sweeper’ (my own slang due to the gun ports) is built by Navistar Defense (NavistarDefense.com), a division within the Navistar organization.
Under the Navistar umbrella are several other companies including International Trucks, IC Bus (they make school buses), Monaco RV (recreational vehicles), WorkHorse (they make chassis), MaxxForce (diesel engines), and Navistar Financial (the money arm of the company).
What about all the surplus mothballed tracked vehicles that were going to be 'donated' by the military/fed to DHS /police?
It's part of means to control the population without imposing gun control. The defense industry makes more money this way because it gets to sell lots of armaments and equipment to the government, which in turn passes on the costs to citizens.
