Banks, Bullets, Lies and a “Bold threat of War”
By Daniel Brigman Copyright 2013
Over the past few weeks growing attention has been placed on the mounting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) bullet orders. At first the thought of 1.6 Billion rounds of ammunition seemed a little exaggerated and unnecessary. Unnecessary unless you were preparing for war…or lived in Montana (I digress). But, I must say, from many confirmed sources it has become apparent in the light of time passing and proper journalism that 1.6 Billion rounds may simply be a false report. It looks like the “fear” media just plain got this wrong.
As reported on the Alex Jones show this week the number is actually closer to 3 Billion rounds of ammunition; (a large number being hollow point) will have been ordered and delivered to DHS by the end of 2013. But who is counting? Apparently just about everybody. What started out as a fringe “conspiracy theory” burst into the public consciousness after sites like Infowars and then Drudge Report wrote about it.
Now it is a major news story and we can see a team of P.R. experts and spin doctors moving to downplay the account. First they ignored and now they deny. Standard procedure. The George Soros funded Think Progress has tried to temper the growing storm of concern by claiming in an article titled “OOOPS: Fox News Peddles Conspiracy Theory it Already Debunked…”
“DHS justified the purchases in a letter to lawmakers,” by explaining, “that it regularly purchases ammunition in bulk to save money…”
Hmm, the previous two years you ordered 100,000 rounds and now in the last year and leading up to the end of this year it will be THREE FRICKIN’ BILLION? I shop at COSTCO I understand bulk purchases. I might buy the story at a hundred thousand but THREE FRICKIN’ BILLION ROUNDS? That would even make Sam Walton raise an eyebrow. And since when does the government care about cutting coupons? Six-hundred dollar toilet seats should make that obvious.
Lawmakers have not shared Think Progress’s optimistic attitude. “Justified” seems an awfully generous word to use. At least there are many Congressmen who see it that way. They have aggressively sought answers to the mounting internal arms buildup by a De Facto agency, acting outside of traditional military, which operates solely on American soil. So far they have been repeatedly stonewalled when asking for transparency. Timothy Huelscamp, a member of a Congress who asked DHS for an explanation, said in an interview with Luke Rudkowski, of We Are Change;
“They refuse to let us know what is going on, so I don’t really have an answer for that. Multiple members of Congress are asking those questions.”
Claims the purchases are part of “routine” buys for target practice seem more than ridiculous. They seem downright deceptive. First of all, many current and former military men have come forward and said they have never used hollow point ammo for target practice. Why would they? Hollow points, (ammunition that pancakes and fragments when it enters the body to cause more damage), are almost twice as much as regular ammo. In addition, it is against the Geneva Convention to use such inhumane bullets in war. Secondly, if it is to be used for military drills then why is DHS making the order…why isn’t military doing it under the proper channels with Congressional oversight? Thirdly, as part of the large order of bullets, why has the Social Security Administration reportedly received 200,000 rounds? Huh? Next are they going to tell us Al-Qaeda is an eminent threat to steal our Social Security checks? They think we are so gullible it wouldn’t surprise me.
Either way, even the most ardent supporter and benign believer in the DHS has to admit the massive purchases are contributing to the ammo shortages experienced throughout the country. Is it all just a backdoor gun-control tactic to dry up supply? In a time when the Obama administration has become the “town crier” against all things second amendment it is rather hypocritical for them to demonize guns out of one side of their mouth while buying up the country’s ammo supply out of the other.
Some people still can’t understand the natural reaction for the People to buy up ammo and guns as fast as they can when they see their government buying it up even faster. I could sell potato peelers out of the back of my car in an empty parking lot. If I hired thirty people to wait in line to buy I guarantee thirty more would join just so they didn’t miss out. We are not talking potato peelers…we are talking the Right and availability for the People to arm themselves. No issue has been more emotionally charged in this country’s history. If the government is arming to the teeth then Americans most certainly will too.
The further one delves into DHS bullet orders the more questions arise. Without a doubt the inconsistencies and deception might lead a realistic person to come to the conclusion that they are “flat out lying.” We haven’t even discussed the reasonable query hanging just below the surface of “polite conversation.” If DHS is buying so many bullets…and they aren’t for target practice…and they have been purchased outside the normal channels of military congressional oversight, then….Who are these massive stockpile of bullets intended for? It is the question many are too afraid to ask because they might not like the answer.
In a scathing letter to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) retired Army Captain Terry M. Hestilow voiced grave concern over the Department of Homeland Security’s strange acquisitions. The letter he sent and posted on Facebook is now making the internet rounds as People resonate with his bold assessment. In the letter Captain Hestilow called the Obama administration’s recent appropriation of weapons a “bold threat of war” against citizens of the United States of America. The letter begins:
“It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America,”
This most profound letter raises the issue further…
“Significant is the fact that at the same time the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States in accordance with his 2008 campaign speech claiming,
‘We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve gotta (sic) have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded [as the United States military]‘–Candidate Barack Obama, 2008.”
“Further, since the DHS has assumed a position in the Administration to enforce the tyrannical acts of this president against the People of the United States against the limits of the United States Constitution, it remains for the United States Congress to exercise its limiting power in the balancing of powers established by our founding fathers, to disestablish and dissolve the DHS as soon as possible,” the retired Captain’s letter continues.
Captain Hestilow cites history to demonstrate the inherent danger that exists in such an organization…
“One needs only to look to the rise of Adolf Hitler, and his associated DHS organizations, the SA and the SS, of 1932-1934, to see the outcome of allowing an agency of government this kind of control over the free citizens of a nation. The people of Germany could not have imagined, until it was too late, the danger of allowing a tyrant this kind of power. We must not be so naïve as to think it will not happen to us as well if we remain passive toward this power grab by the Marxist Obama administration”
He also makes a direct plea to all Oath taking members of the Military and Police and People to prevent history from repeating itself…
“If left unresolved the peace loving citizens who have sworn to defend the United States Constitution ‘against all enemies, both foreign and domestic’ are left no option except to prepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against this Administration’s ‘coup’ against the People and the foundations of liberty fought for and defended for the past 238 years. We have no choice if we honor our oaths.”
The speculation is exploding. When the dots are connected they quickly lead to a place most couldn’t have imagined they would ever go. Adding fuel to the fire is a recent report from Infowars confirming a two million dollar order of “No-Hesitation” practice targets by DHS. The paper targets show images of children and pregnant women. Several drills in America involving Military going house to house to take American’s firearms have also been confirmed. No wonder the growing sentiment of suspicion is turning to extreme distrust of government in this country.
In 2008 during the banker bailout, if it wasn’t apparent already, it became clear that our government served the central banks that Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, and countless others, vehemently warned us about. Despite the People’s adamant disapproval the bailout was passed by the deceitful Congress. Central banks further sunk their demon hooks into us. Like a vampirical parasite they have sucked the engine of prosperity from the People. Where is this going? Look no further than Cyprus.
Last week it became World news when the bank accounts of private Cypriot citizens were robbed of up to 10% of their holdings. The banking insolvency crisis of the country was blamed and this was painted as a solution. A banking holiday was declared and all accounts frozen. During this “holiday” (a most unusual word choice) the EU central bankers struck a deal with the government to provide a “bailout” but 10% wouldn’t be enough. As of the writing of this article the “haircut” from accounts was going to reach 25% and possibly 40%. The government, an obvious puppet of the central bankers, is pushing as much and as fast as the People will take without an open riot.
The strategy they are using to squelch dissent is quite interesting and is a diversion tactic we should take note of. The government claims they will only take the steep percentages out of bank accounts of more than one hundred thousand Euros. So, in summary, they have economically raped the people of their country for the benefit of the fraudulent central banks. To prevent the people from getting mad at the banks and the government they use endless propaganda to sell the lie and wash the bitter pill down with some “but don’t worry little people it will only affect those dirty rich with over a hundred thousand in their bank.” An obvious collective/communist control technique to divert anger away from the culprit and gain acceptance. It is class warfare defined. Also note that gun ownership in Cyprus is not permitted in the country without specific permission from the government. How convenient…that is if you are trying to steal as much as you can carry.
You may have asked why I put the Cyprus nightmare and the DHS “bullet-gate” in the same article. They are more closely related than you might think. It is more than reasonable to think the banking crises’ throughout Europe and America are far from over. You cannot put a band-aid on a severed artery and expect the problem to go away. I ask…what will Americans do when a banking holiday is declared here and 40% is taken out of their accounts? Yeah…I agree with you. So, why do you think the administration is clamoring for your guns? Why do you think the DHS is arming to the roof with bullets, drones and armored vehicles? Why do you think Captain Hestilow has given such a grave and dire warning to the People? Why do you think our Founding Fathers gave us the Bill of Rights? Why do you think there has been such a push to subvert it?
There are some obvious questions that need hard answers. I’m not going to lie…I am concerned. I don’t believe our government is always acting with our best interest at heart. Is it still “cooky” to believe the US government just might be creating the perfect atmosphere for the central bankers to wedge their way into our lives and take everything they can from us? And then positioning the DHS to stop the riots when the People finally realize they have gone too far? I believe it is time the thought at least crossed your mind. I gotta go. I already have a potato peeler but I better get down to the gun shop and see if there is any .45 ammo left before the head of DHS, Big Sis, top TSA groper, and habitual violator of the Bill of Rights…Janet Napolitano buys it all. I trust it a lot more in my hands than hers.
