You have to hand it to Obama. At least he is keeping his promises.
July 02, 2008 – Colorado Springs, Colorado: Presidential candidate Barack Obama announces, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
And now the Department of Homeland Security is busy purchasing bulletproof checkpoint booths; riot gear, hollow point bullets, and now sniper grade ammunition, among other things.
“This is tyranny, “ says Alex Jones at InfoWars.
In March of this year, the Department of Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point bullets, even though these types of bullets have been illegal in international warfare since 1899.
Since November of 2011, the DHS has purchased a total of 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition—and now they recently released a series of new purchase orders on the FedBizOpps website requesting over 2 million more rounds of sniper-grade ammo.
So ask yourself why the federal government is busy purchasing checkpoint booths, anti-radiation pills, and large assault vehicles, and why they are so vague and dismissive when someone presses them to explain why.
Obama is nationalizing industries (automakers, the internet, healthcare) and going around Congress to impose his agenda (Net Neutrality, the Dream Act, cybersecurity). America is now paying the price for the “hope and change” propaganda of 2008.
And he is placing the DHS front and center as the Gestapo of the United States.
This is the same agency that gropes you at the airport (and steals your belongings with increasingly regularity); and they also released a report warning of radical groups in the U.S. comprised of Christians, war veterans, pro-life supporters and small government promoters.
Are conservatives now going to be labeled as “terrorists” by the Obama administration and singled out for destruction?
His administration has targeted many conservative individuals and groups for auditing; it is no reach to assume he will use the power of the government to stamp out any dissenters.
As Obama clears government agencies for firepower, he is working to take away our rights to bear arms and defend ourselves. Consider:
- The Obama administration is working with the United Nations to disarm all Americans through the Small Arms Treaty.
- He has used his corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder and his comrades at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms (ATF) to sell arms to Mexico in an effort to force Congress to limit our Second Amendment rights.
- Under an expansion of the civil forfeiture doctrine, Obama has just given the ATF the power to seize your firearms if they choose to, without due process, and even if you are not under investigation. Under Obama’s new decree, if the ATF says they are going to confiscate your firearms, they can.
- The draft cybersecurity order, which would place all activities on the Internet under the jurisdiction of the DHS, included gun control language, encouraged by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). When that cybersecurity bill didn’t pass, Obama began drafting one of his own, which he plans to introduce by Executive Order, … will that EO contain limits on our Second Amendment right to bear arms?
If you weren’t already concerned about the power the Department of Homeland Security is amassing, you should be now—especially because we don’t have a President who respects the Constitution and the rights it gives us.
The ACLU made a Freedom of Information Act request and found that since 2009…during Obama’s entire presidential term…Justice Department spying on Americans has increased 64 percent.
Be aware that former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said that defeating terrorism will require the use of more “soft power,” meaning civilians will need to contribute more. And he wasn’t just touting Big Sis Janet Napolitano’s line of “see something, say something;” the Associated Press reported that he was calling for the “creation of new government organizations, including a permanent group of civilian experts with a wide range of expertise who could be sent abroad on short notice as a supplement to U.S. military efforts.”
The Department of Defense’s Civilian Expeditionary Workforce directive will establish that “soft power.”
Members of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce shall be organized, trained, cleared, equipped, and ready to deploy in support of combat operations by the military; contingencies; emergency operations; humanitarian missions; disaster relief; restoration of order; drug interdiction; and stability operations of the Department of Defense in accordance with DoD 3000.05
This is not something that can be ignored!
The DHS continues to request more firepower, their reasons for doing so continue to be vague, and Obama continues to give them more control over our daily lives. All this as he ignores the corruption and scandal going on within the agency itself, which is overrun with criminal allegations and corruption!
We must, as Alex Jones at InfoWars urges, become like Paul Revere and expose the purchases the DHS is making, while we lean on Congress to stop this military-like behavior by a domestic agency. Our Constitution and our Bill of Rights must be defended against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
