DHS AMASSING ARMS FOR SECRET FORCES TO BE USED AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS?
Major General Jerry Curry, who is a decorated combat veteran, Army Aviator, paratrooper and Ranger, has asked the question: “Who does the government intend to shoot?” In an op-ed piece, Curry brings up the strange purchases of hollow point bullets the Department of Homeland security has made recently. Through other federal agencies like the Social Security Office (SSO) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the DHS have ordered several thousand hollow point bullets as well.
Curry states: “No one has yet said what the purpose of these purchases is, though we are led to believe that they will be used only in an emergency to counteract and control civil unrest. Those against whom the hollow point bullets are to be used — those causing the civil unrest — must be American citizens; since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens.”
The Geneva Convention outlaws hollow point bullets on the battle field because of their deadly nature. Curry asks if DHS intends to shoot “nation’s military and replace them with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) special security forces, forces loyal to the Administration, not to the Constitution?”
Is the DHS arming a private army with hollow point bullets with the intent to shoot at US Armed Forces, US veterans and civilians?
The DHS put out a solicitation to manufacturers for 63,000,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point bullets. By August 20th, the DHS has requested 357 mag rounds that are able to pierce through walls.
The Social Security Office has also made a solicitation for 174,000 rounds of .357 hollow point bullets.
A past solicitation includes government contracts for every type of weapon of all calibers and by the thousands. From training rounds to armory meant to devastate the human body, the DHS is preparing to win an anticipated civil disturbance.
In May of this year, the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) requested from Congress through a new authorization act to allow US armed forces to be used against American citizens as a new response team for domestic disturbances.
According to Lt. Gen. Charles E. Stenner Jr., chief of Air Force Reserve and AFRC commander: “Mobilizing needed reservists will help sustain their support for longer periods and make operations more efficient. We mobilize reservists to handle contingencies overseas, so it makes sense that we do that to take care of our own country.”
At the New York City’s Grand Central Terminal (GCT), Airman First Class Peter Grajewski, a member of the Joint Task Force Empire Shield, is stationed at GCT to conduct security operations in NYC in an effort of “deter and prevent terrorist acts.”
Army Lt. Col. Peter Riley, the task force’s commander, explains: “We are a full-time, state active-duty force of 280 New Yorkers. [This force] was formed on 9/11 and has been here since. “New York, historically, has been a city greatly targeted by terrorists. Empire Shield is designed to show the bad guys that we’re here and hopefully make them think twice about trying any sort of terrorist attack.”
Airmen and Soldiers of JTF Empire Shield work with the NYPD, Amtrak police, MTA police and the US coast Guard to ensure military-style safety of civilians. Although they are not responsible for making arrests, they are legally allowed to detain civilians at their discretion and use force if they deem necessary.
While the DHS solicits for 700 pounds of High Density Ammonium Nitrate and 700 pounds of A-5 Flake RDX which is the exact ingredients need to manufacture an improvised explosive device (IEDs), the Pentagon is coming before Congress to demand that Posse Comitatis be “relaxed” so that military troops can freely patrol American streets looking for the home-grown terrorists.
The FBI asserts that according to their intelligence, unidentified persons have “planned to travel to Tampa and attempt to close” Tampa Bay area bridges during the Republican National Convention (RNC). The FBI states these extremists will engage “in potentially destructive criminal activities against critical infrastructure outside the security perimeter throughout the Tampa Bay region because they expected access to the main RNC venue to be tightly controlled.”
These extremists are being described as “white supremacists” that are purchasing materials to build IEDs, are training with firearms to enact violence against “groups they oppose.”
In 2009, the Office of Intelligence and Analysis published a report entitled Rightwing Extremism, wherein domestic extremists, particularly white supremacists, were proposed to be the newest and most dangerous threat to the US since al-Qaeda.
While admitting that they had no definitive proof that “domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, [however] rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment.”
The DHS wanted to instill the idea that veterans were being recruited to become “right-wing extremists” upon returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. Janet Napolitano intimated that military veterans could become instruments of domestic terror. When Napolitano’s comments were met with public distain, the DHS amended their assertion that extremist groups were highly-marked; but rather it was a lone wolf type that would carry out the biggest act of domestic terrorism.
The group Reaching Critical Will (RCW) are planning to hold a conference in New York City between August 27th to September of this year to discuss the “UN Program of Action to Prevent, Combat, and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons In All Its Aspects will meet at the United Nations Headquarters.”
The RCW are dedicated to working with the UN on disarmament and coercion of sovereign nations to participate with the UN in removing the rights of citizens to have the right to own a gun.
The RCW conference is meant to be a review of the UN Arms Trade Treaty conference that was recently held in NYC at the UN headquarters. The UN’s Programme of Action (PoA), which is the initial effort to disarm all citizens of all nations will be discussed and reaffirmed. In a scheme to devise a way of convincing countries to outlaw rights to firearms to citizens, only the governmental armed forces would have access to guns.
By using “incentives and sanctions” along with business and civil society, governments must recover stocks of firearms held by the population and dispose of them definitively, preferably through destruction.”
Back in July, the UN held a conference in NY at the UN headquarters to discuss the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) wherein they have decided they will meet to create an “elaborate a legally binding instrument on the highest possible common international standards for the transfer of conventional arms.”
The ATT will empower the UN to literally force the US government to:
- Enact internationally agreed licensing requirements for Americans
- Confiscate and destroy unauthorized firearms of Americans while allowing the US government to keep theirs
- Ban trade, sale and private ownership of semi-automatic guns
- Create and mandate an international registry to organize an encompassing gun confiscation in America
We are seeing military “training” on our streets, the mainstream media demonizing US veterans, DHS purchasing hundreds of thousands of hollow point bullets and the ingredients to manufacture IEDs at the same time the UN to discussing how to effectively disarm Americans and we are supposed to continue on “business as usual” as if nothing is happening.
