Why does Obama Need 1.6 billion bullets?
Townhall - Diana West – 3/23/2013
During the last 10 months, the Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, including millions of hollow-point bullets. The department also has purchased 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, and it has overseen the retrofitting of more than 2,000 light tanks, which, of course, were originally designed to resist the mines and ambushes of the battlefield. Why does DHS need such offensive and defensive firepower?
DHS stands for Department of Homeland Security, and "homeland," just to be extremely clear, means the
Obama must be asked against which domestic enemy he is arming nonmilitary
forces. It sounds incredible, to be sure, but are we watching administration
battle plans take shape against American citizens on the streets of Your Town,
Even the liberal-minded "debunking" site Snopes.com confirms that the Social Security Administration has procured 174,000 hollow-point bullets for 300 special agents. Meanwhile, the National Marine Fisheries Service, which is tasked with "protecting fish stocks from depletion," has procured 46,000 hollow-point bullets. Spokesman Scott Smullen explained, straight-faced, I am guessing, that 63 fisheries service "enforcement agents" will be using the so-called cop-killer bullets for "target qualifications."
And that's nothing. Last month, Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars.com reported that DHS purchased 21.6 million more rounds of ammunition, including 10 million hollow-point bullets. The latter, of course, are prohibited by the rules of war.
Commentators who have done the math tell us the feds' ammo dump includes enough bullets to fight the war in
for 27 years, or enough bullets to shoot every American citizen five times
The evidence, so far, is in the ammo. The whoppers and the stonewalling come from the government. Recently, Watson writes, the company began selling cardboard cutout targets designed to "desensitize police" to "nontraditional threat targets," as the online catalog called them. These targets included very pregnant women, children and other civilians in home, playground or other neighborhood settings. All hold guns. Public outrage over Watson's online reports was such that LET apologized on Facebook for the company's "No More Hesitation products" and removed them from its website.
What branch of law enforcement requested and designed them? DHS? Fisheries? Social Security? Who exactly is planning for the kind of action that requires all those bullets? Is the government, as some suggest, depleting ammunition stocks as a means of gun control? Then why light tanks, too? We don't know the answers to any of these questions.
That's where you come in.
