With it’s left hand, the government is trying to pass laws banning assault rifles and your ability to protect yourself. With it’s right hand, it is ordering assault rifles to arm DHS thugs.
Well, at least we know why they got those millions and millions of rounds of ammo. They must think some kind of domestic war is coming. Do you?
Department of Homeland Security to Purchase 7,000 “Assault Weapons”
Via Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,
The hypocrisy of the government knows no bounds. I have said repeatedly, and continue to say, that I am against all gun control at the moment because our government is extremely violent and not only do I not expect it to protect the American people in general, I believe it is far more concerned with protecting the status quo from the people. It has become crystal clear that the political and financial oligarchs are quite intentionally attempting to disarm the populace while arming themselves to the teeth in anticipation of some horrible economic event they know is inevitable. From the Blaze:
The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to acquire 7,000 5.56x45mm NATO “personal defense weapons” (PDW) — also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians. The solicitation, originally posted on June 7, 2012, comes to light as the Obama administration is calling for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines.
Citing a General Service Administration (GSA) request for proposal (RFP), Steve McGough of RadioViceOnline.com reports that DHS is asking for the 7,000 “select-fire” firearms because they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.” The term select-fire means the weapon can be both semi-automatic and automatic. Civilians are prohibited from obtaining these kinds of weapons.
That being said, it is reasonable for the Department of Homeland Security to request these rifles as they are indeed effective personal defense weapons. The agency is tasked with keeping Americans safe from those who wish to do the country harm, and its officials should be equipped with all the tools they need to do so effectively.
See the meme being pushed here? These guys want the entire population completely domesticated. They want us to depend on the government for food. For healthcare. For self-defense. Two sets of laws. One for the “rulers” and one for the “ruled.” This is the opposite of how things function in a free society.
I am sorry, but unless you think the DHS is preparing for an invasion by Al Qaeda, it is quite clear these weapons are being bought for future use against the citizenry of the United States. The writing on the wall couldn’t be clearer.
The Department of Homeland Security Is Terrorizing American Citizens!
by Gary D. Barnett
As reported recently, heavily armed agents of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stormed a Leesburg, Florida Social Security office. This supposed drill was unannounced, and was understandably frightening to the local visitors to that office.
The armed DHS thugs arrived in swat team fashion, surrounding the building with their blue and white SUVs, and posting at the door of the Social Security building a guard with a semi-automatic weapon. Some began randomly checking the identification of locals, while others with drug sniffing dogs rifled through the rest of the building. One can understand their caution and hard-handed behavior due to the extreme risk posed to our country by Florida retirees.
There was obviously no cause to accost any of these innocent citizens, but when in this day and age, given the police state we now live in, do the feds care about cause? Apparently, the governor, the attorney general, and all the state police forces were absent, probably hiding behind their desks until the feds left after their fascist style raid!
The DHS had the audacity to call this assault “Operation Shield.” This sounds more like a name of a war operation in the Middle East than a raid on the elderly. This was done under the guise of a surprise drill with a mission to detect the “presence of unauthorized persons and potentially disruptive or dangerous activities.” None of these existed of course, but why should that matter to the DHS, the most abominable agency of the federal government. The real mission of the DHS is to intimidate and terrorize innocent people so as to habituate and control them. It will be necessary to break down the resistance of the citizenry, so that the people will not take aggressive action against the state when civil unrest becomes the norm, and Martial Law is implemented. Obviously the government plan is working.
These DHS “checkpoints” are becoming far too common. What began just recently in Tennessee as a test has now spread to many other parts of this country. This was expected by those of us who understand the nature of the federal government’s aggression against freedom, but the speed at which it is progressing is dangerous. These checkpoints will continue to increase in number, and will continue to expand in area. A pattern is already obvious, and allowing this invasion of our rights to go unanswered is a fool’s game.
The remedy lies with individuals, and with individual states. We as sovereign individuals have to be prepared to resist the fascist advances of the federal government, and its preferred agency of force, the Department of Homeland Security. Most still cringe at the thought of Nazi or Stalinist enforcers who detained people and demanded to see their papers, but what difference is there between those enforcers of old and the DHS? When a heavily armed DHS or TSA thug dressed in combat gear and armor forces you to submit to his orders, and without any provocation, what else can that be called but tyranny? Refusing to acquiesce to this assault on our liberty should be the first step taken.
The individual states also have an obligation to protect their residents from federal invasions and bad laws, and should take immediate action to stop the feds from terrorizing citizens with these criminal raids. When DHS thugs come into any state to set up these fascist checkpoints, the sheriff’s office, and all other state police forces, by order of the governor or states attorney general, should immediately instruct them to leave. If they do not obey, then they should be arrested and jailed.
