Why Is The Government Inciting Fear Via Military Drills, Military Equipment Movement, FEMA Vehicles And Large Quantity Ammo Repositioning?

 

I generally try not to touch on this sort of topic because I often find some readers immediately accuse us of fear mongering when doing so. I can no longer hold back, however, because the government is now fully engaged in fear mongering campaigns via the U.S. military that simply must be observed, reported on and questioned.

I’m going to list some very recent incidents that are occurring on AMERICAN soil, in AMERICAN cities. Take a look at each of them and tell me… why is the U.S. government doing all of this?

SOUTH HOUSTON ARMY DRILL SCARES RESIDENTS

Check this out.

The sight of Army helicopters and the sound of gunfire created a lot of concern Monday afternoon in one Houston neighborhood.

We received a lot of phones calls, Tweets and Facebook posts from worried neighbors, wondering what was going on.

SkyEye 13 HD was over the south side where at first look, it appeared there was a massive SWAT scene happening.

With military helicopters flying above her southeast Houston neighborhood, Frances Jerrals didn’t know what to think.

A school was placed on lockdown as guns were fired, armed men were present and residents were terrified into thinking they were in a war zone. This happened in Houston, folks. Houston. Not in the middle of a valley in Nevada. Houston, Texas.

Is this sort of military drill isolated to one major U.S. city? Nope.

MILITARY DRILL IN DOWNTOWN MIAMI

(See video to hear automatic military rifle fire from the sky over Miami)

Blackhawk Choppers flew over Miami firing machine guns (blanks) and local streets were shut down. This was explained as a drill, but most residents had no idea it was coming.

1.4 BILLION ROUNDS OF AMMO PURCHASED BY GOVERNMENT

You read that right… 1.4 BILLION rounds of ammunition was ordered by the fed within the past six months.

The Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition- that is not a typo — during the last six months. This includes 450 million rounds of  .40 hollow point, 200 million rounds of .223 rifle ammunition, and 176,000 rounds of .308 168-grain hollow point boat tail (HPBT) that is used almost exclusively as ammo for sniper rifles.

Not surprisingly, there is now a national shortage on all caliber of ammo mentioned above. Now the government is ordering record amounts of 9mm ammo, which is playing right into the expanding problem. As reported Crest View Bulletin.

Kevin Camilli, who co-owns Grey Tactical Outfitters in Destin with Eli Caison, said he hasn’t been able to get ammunition in on a consistent basis for weeks.

“At some point I’ll get some in, but I don’t think it will be for a while,” Camilli said. “The government is buying a whole lot of it, which decreases the available supply. The munitions plants, there’s only a limited number of them, and every round they produce before it comes off the assembly line is already sold. When I’m putting an order in, I’m putting an order in for raw materials that haven’t even been mined yet. There is no stockpile of guns or ammo.”

Why on earth would Homeland Security need this much ammunition?

HOMELAND SECURITY ORDERS 7,000 “ASSAULT WEAPONS”

As if the ammo shortage wasn’t problematic enough, we’re now finding out the feds ordered some 7,000 semi-automatic rifles last June.

According to Steve McGough ofRadioViceOnline.com, DHS said the “select-fire” weapons are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.” The weapons sought by the DHS would be capable of semi-automatic and automatic fire and would be equipped with high-capacity 30-round magazines, the same type some want to see banned for use by civilians.

So if you’re wondering why the gun shows can’t keep a stock of AR-15 style rifles… now ya know why.

FEMA FIGHTING VEHICLES

What’s the heck is the deal with these monsters?

policeIndividuals around the US have begun reporting the site of strange, new, heavily-armed FEMA fighting vehicles. What would a disaster relief agency like FEMA need with 2,500 brand new GLS armored fighting vehicles? According to the agency’s own mandate, as well as President Obama’s recent Executive Order, the answer is ‘population control’ during a time of Martial Law.

One set of images made available by Rense.com shows trailer after trailer carrying these new DHS and FEMA armored fighting vehicles, complete with machine gun slots. They’re labeled with the usual backward American flag and the title, ‘Homeland Security’. Below that and the DHS logo, it also reads, ‘Immigration & Customs Enforcement’. Joining those markings, the black vehicles with white lettering also display ‘POLICE/RESCUE’ on one side and ‘Special Response Team’ on the other.

FEMA needs vehicles with machine gun slots??

 

AMMUNITION CONTAINERS REPOSITIONED IN MAJOR CITIES

As Jim Hoft reported, this seems odd.

Jim – I passed a convoy of olive drab unmarked 40 foot tractor trailers each with four 10 yard ammo bunker boxes chained to them and unmarked armored Hum-Vee’s heading north on I-95 in Brevard County, Florida this past Thursday morning. The “govt” is positioning these ammo storage boxes, I have been told, in strategic places in population centers around the country. They are usually painted olive drab and are unmarked except for indistinguishable numbers/letters probably for inventory, routing, etc.

Look, I’m not asserting anything here. I’m just curious as to why all of this is necessary and why it’s all being done here at home? This is the kind of activity you would expect to occur on military bases or overseas, not in downtown Miami.

The Obama administration and his ilk in Congress oftentimes accuse concerned Americans of causing fear in the minds of others. All of this posted above is certainly cause for concern, and it’s all happening at the will of the government.

So who exactly is spreading fear here?

    Goes hand in hand with wanting to take away our protection , I believe……Americans need to prepare for 2 things,,,government takeover and, somewhere in the not too far future, the 2nd coming of Christ! I would chance to believe that He’s about had his fill of what’s going on in America…..

    Real debt of the USA is currently $87Trillion (counting unfunded liabilities). Add 10 States that have more people on Welfare/Foodstamps than have jobs (Including California, NY, & IL), you have disaster waiting to happen. Not to mention Obama just gave 3 F16′s & 200 Tanks to Libya, a sworn enemy of the US & Israel, Iran just a couple Months away from Nuclear capability….you get the jist!

  • Smith

    Really are you all just so stupid no wonder the left calls us on the right “wingnuts” I just was looking at one of the sites used as a reference “rence” and it even has a story on how the NAZI concentration camps weren’t so bad after all, what is with this anit-semtenic BS. Is this really what the TEA party has become, allied with neo -NAZI’s???? If so I can and will no longer be involved with anything that has to do with it I would ask that this page look over what it uses as sources.

    • ericjodom

      You do realize that when you make statements such as “allied with neo-Nazi’s” with absolutely no proof to back it up, you discredit your entire premise, correct? Because that’s exactly what you just did. To assert the tea party is allied with such a group is to show blatant ignorance.

      • Smith

        really so saying taking another look at one of the worst concentration camps in Nazi Germany in a good way isn’t supporting Nazi views? How is that so, oh and by the way I didn’t say it was I asked if it was becoming so if it finds the use of a site posting such garbage, and by the way I’ve never watched MSNBC ever.

        • Smith

          I’m just saying to further the argument care should be taken not too take too much credence in evidence from sources that have other things on them that weaken an otherwise good argument. So also by your own assertion then the Nazi death camps were good places since you claim that “rense” is accurate?

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Marc-Matthews/100000117338436 Marc Matthews

            Using your logic shouldn’t MSNBC be guilty of what you are accusing the Tea Party of?

          • Smith

            heck if I know I don’t watch them. Look I was right when it wasn’t cool, I just don’t like being associated with nut jobs. And if CBS is anything to go by the mainstream media doesn’t use sources out side political talking points from the left. All I’m saying is don’t give the left more ammo to play the race card not that they need any.

    • ericjodom

      Additionally, since we disagree with about 98% of what MSNBC spews, are you alleging we should not link to the other 2% that is accurate reporting? In fact, there are probably thoughts and opinions on this site that other sites may not agree with, but they may still link to certain stories here. That’s the way sourcing works.

    • Chloe

      Nazi camps weren’t so bad? Maybe you haven’t seen pictures of those in the camps starving, just bones, and then shot and piled on top of one another. I’m sure Obama has a FEMA camp with your name on it you idiot. There is nothing anti-semantic about this. This is about Americans WE THE PEOPLE. Get a grip Man!!!!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/JoAnn-Warner/100000558756529 JoAnn Warner

    It seems pres obama is running scared, my thought is to put great! fear into people, so as to threaten them.I recall he asked the military if they would shoot our citizens. He seems to be putting pedal to the metal, so to speak.he wants to overwhelm we the people,and he is becoming very aggresive.Exercising a force of power.He ultimatly using fear, and abuse of power.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/JoAnn-Warner/100000558756529 JoAnn Warner

    Sure seems correct to me also Rose.He wants our firearms,and has ordered a huge amount of ammo, and police are running short also.He seems to have a plan, as much of one as to remove all of our protection.This is insane behavior.This president needs to be accountable.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/JoAnn-Warner/100000558756529 JoAnn Warner

    Wonder if by taking our firearms,and he is hoarding guns and ammo,and he is ordering this, then seems he is so fearful of how we the people will react to his next moves.Also, recently asked the military if they would shoot citizens.Seems he is loading the boats ,so , he is fearful of attack,therefore wants us not have firearms to protect ourselves.This is insane.

    • Chloe

      It was said on the news today that Obama was surprised at the outpouring of pro second admendment people. What did he expect? That we would sit idly waiting on him to come for us? I am glad he is worried and surprised. We have more guns and ammo in the south than DHS has altogether. The Bubbas of the South don’t like being messed with.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/JoAnn-Warner/100000558756529 JoAnn Warner

    wonder what his mental state is?

    • http://www.facebook.com/Lremmell64 Lorena Hess Remmell

      His mental state is “Demented”, “Narcistic” and power hungry.

      • Chloe

        as well as arrogant, pompous, lying, marxist, communist, gay, muslim, asshole.

  • Paul Revered

    Fvck the rapture, converge on 1600 when it begins, right to the top

    • http://www.facebook.com/mark.treadway Mark Treadway

      @Paul, although I try to keep a clean tongue, I certainly agree on the starting point

    • http://www.facebook.com/Lremmell64 Lorena Hess Remmell

      Right, try and step one foot in front of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as a protest and see what happens next. Because of HR347 Secret Service, Capitol Police, and DHS would be all over the crowd gathered there to protest.

      • Paul Revered

        How many of them? Can they contain several million, LOL.
        If during the Holocaust when people were being hauled away thought as one mind for just a few seconds and converged on the few guards with guns, the outcome would have been quite different. Same here.

  • DGR

    First of all, being in the military, I don’t know of anyone at all that has ever been asked if we would shoot civilians. Secondly, I know military helicopters inside and out, you never fly with multiple aircraft without all your lights on and I didn’t see one aircraft in that video with all it’s lights. Seems a little farfetched to me.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mark.mills.37 Mark Mills

      Are you saying the video might be fake, or are you saying those are not military choppers?

      • DGR

        They are military, but I can’t lend any credence to the video since there is no way any pilot would operate outside safety restrictions. Going against safety is what gets people killed.

  • chris

    I feel that the military and federal government should do the exercises. But when they do this they should inform local citizens. How can we get good at protecting Americans if we don’t practice. if we build a fake city? Then Americans will complain about that. its not a government take over or anything just practice. No one got hurt or died.

  • redfish7@verizon.net

    Only a complete fool would deny that this is leading to an all out civil war, just what “they” want, obama is already firing the military leaders that won’t kill American citizens and KEEPING the ones that will kill American citizens. How does that make you feel ? This is why he will bring in foreign mercenaries and the UN.
    WAKE UP they are going to start a war right here in America, look at what is happening all around the world. Do you think that it can’t or won’t happen here ? They will use local police departments to help them try to disarm us and then they will turn on the local P.D.’s and disarm them too.
    The rest of the world is not as much of our enemy as our own government is.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ImagineItYours Lea Fox

      yes, they are downsizing the military…they would protect and defend us!

  • http://www.facebook.com/mark.mills.37 Mark Mills

    Begging your pardon; “Select Fire” does NOT mean “Semi-automatic”.
    The order from the DHS is for 7000 Military M4 Machine Guns…

  • http://www.facebook.com/mark.mills.37 Mark Mills

    Another point: The sniper ammo ordered; “.308 Federal Gold Metal Match, with 168 Grain Sierra Match King, Boat Tail Hollow Point Bullet” is the ammunition most commonly used in police departement sniper rifles (most departments use the Remington 700p).
    The Military uses the “.308 Federal Gold Metal Match, with 175 Grain Sierra Match King, Boat Tail Hollow Point Bullet” in their M24 and M40 sniper rifles.
    What does this mean? Maybe nothing
    But, if the kid who grew up next door who became a military sniper, is home on leave complaining that he has had to “spend countless hours re-zeroing his rifle for multiple distances, and under multiple wind and weather conditions, because he will be shooting different ammo.”
    It could mean something…

  • messup

    When a tyrannical government wishes to “flex its power” what’s the first thing in its arsenal of tools to show its People??? Yep!!! Governments’ military hardware…just like Tienneman Square! Trouble with this little display of USA frivolity is, We The People fought the worlds largest, most well equipped military and naval armada ever to grace the face of this earth…AND WON!!! Does Kim-Jong-Uh’s launching of missiles bother We The People? Nah!!! Been there, done that!
    This administration just forgets American History. We The People have been in some form of continual military conflict ever since the founding of this great nation. There are more military, retired or otherwise in its 310-odd million citizenry than all of US’s standing military including National Guard and inactive Reservists combined. Think of this, We The Elite People of culture of corruption (scared beyond belief) in Washington DC think for a minute 410 million armed and willing ctizens of this great Nation will willingly let tyranny reign??? Not on your sweet patootie…Let Freedom Ring!!! You Washington DC Elites…your Pentagon Generals will be just like those surrounding two past nut jobs (the 3rd Reich’s and French Revolution). Pray. Amen.
