The Buildup Continues: Dept. of Homeland Security Purchases 2,700 MRAPs (Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles) For Domestic Use Posted on March 4, 2013 by sundance Some may ignore But we ask the same questions again, and again. Why do they need these? This is beyond Creepy Who is the DHS going to war against?
The Federal Government ordered almost 2 billion rounds of ammunition. They ordered targets looking like average armed citizens. They are conducting military style exercises in urban areas. North Carolina police say they are practicing for martial law.
Via Modern Survival Blog - 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.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.

I just read this on Drudge a little while ago. I find it highly disturbing even more so than the ammo order. This is the Civilian National Defense Force.
I am going to formally contact my US rep and have a discussion with him or request in writing his detailed view of why this is happening and why the House of Representatives is funding this stuff. I urge everyone else to do the same.
Last week a pretty bad guy killed two cops in Santa Cruz, CA. Pictures after the event showed some kind of SWAT tank from nearby Scotts Valley, which has maybe two main streets and a population of less than 12,000 spread over many square miles.
They want every town militarized.
Say goodbye to ALL guns!
Who could these bery armed men in camo be going after?
Ruskies or NKoreans a la Red Dawn?
who does that leave?
and they want us to register our weapons in a national database.
Like they said at Gonzales
COME AND TAKE THEM.
I will also be calling my elected Pols
This is the “Civilian Resistance Suppression” force.
This sure makes me ready to register all my firearms and turn in my salt rifles and hi cap magazines to the einsatzgruppen ss...oopps I meant the DHS.
If these are going to be used for border patrol, I have no problem with it, but the cynic in me thinks that’s not the case.

Before he’ll give you an answer on your question he’ll hand you a survey form with a request for a monatary contribution.
"For $10, the Scotts Valley Peace Officers Association bought the truck from a private security company that offers their retired vehicles to law enforcement agencies for very little money. Then officers drummed up donations from businesses in the area to pay for sprucing up the truck."
Remember Obamas promise to create a civilian force just as well funded, just as well equipped as the military ? Well, it looks like hes done exactly what he said he would.
This is a step around for Posse Comitatis. The president is prohibited from using military forces in the US.
This can easily be solved by the states rejecting the use of these arms within their borders.
Americans better reassert state rights RIGHT NOW!!!
Well, at least the shirts are the correct color.
Being color blind, I didn’t even notice the color of the shirts. I’m assuming they’re brown?
The gun control laws taking place in blue states is just the beginning. Statists know they can never fully control the American people until we have no means of fighting back. I will fight them every step of the way. It’s better to die on my feet than live as a slave on my knees.
I believe the United States will self-destruct within 8 years. ObamaCare will destroy whats left of the economy. Unemployment will skyrocket to third world numbers. Can anyone really see anything else happening to keep the USA together? And should a country as stupid and corrupt as the United States continue as a republic?
America has too many moochers to survive. Too many takers and not enough makers. And NO ONE in Washington appears prepared to do what is necessary to preserve the economy, the dollar, or the limited-government principles set forth in the Constitution.
“This is the Civilian Resistance Suppression force”
For once we are in total lockstep agreement.
They either know something is coming or they are planning to do something. Either way CWII is a short distance off. This stuff with DHS has ramped up so fast it makes your head swim.
