What Is Our Government Up To These Days?

Recently I was listening to a radio broadcast on Coast to Coast (Something I don’t really endorse due to the most often rather spuriously dubious subject matter) and the interviewee mentioned something about The Department of Homeland Security buying up rounds of ammunition. The figure of 450 million rounds was quoted. I found this to be rather suspicious but wasn’t about to take it on face value. I needed to research this, and all the other claims this person made on that particular broadcast. So as I proceeded to look these things up, I saw much to my dismay that things are not only as this man described, but in some cases even worse.

Realizing that such subject matter can be extremely uncomfortable to reckon with or even to admit (the “it can’t happen here” mentality), we must always bear in mind that the Bible speaks quite clearly regarding what we know as “the last days”. It doesn’t pull any punches when it describes the “perilous times” (2 Tim. 3:1) that are just ahead. If you view such films as the recently released The Daniel Project with Jacob Prasch, you realize as do I, that the time remaining for man’s so-called autocratic rule (and in our current position) of the elite or oligarchy is coming to a succinct close, and immediately followed (and caused) by the Second Coming of Christ. Those whose allegiance by spiritual re-birth in Christ, and for Christ will share in the ultimate and quintessential victory through our LORD and Savior. In short, no matter how dark is gets, we win in the end! So let us look these things squarely in the eye, unflinching, unafraid and with no anxiety with the greater view of eternity just beyond this miasma of (the elite of) mankind’s evil propensity for tyranny and oppression. Let us ponder deeply and with unbreakable joy the truth as spoken in the books of Daniel and The Revelation of Jesus Christ:

Daniel 2: 44

And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Revelation 11: 15

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Maintaining the eternal perspective of our victory in Christ should encourage and even embolden us to face the coming challenges and perils with faith and peace and joy that defy rational explanation! With that said, let’s look at what’s been happening recently . . .

The Department of Homeland Security has recently awarded a contract to ATK, an ammunition manufacturer for the purchase of four hundred and fifty (450) million rounds of ammunition, but not just regular bullets; rather specifically for hollow point rounds.
These particular kind of bullets are very destructive; once they penetrate the body, the projectile breaks up and fires off in various directions throughout the person, almost like a miniature grenade (with a concussive rather than an explosive impact).
According to one source these types of bullets are forbidden in warfare by the Hague Convention (1899), Declaration III; but it actually predates this from an earlier Declaration of St. Petersburg; 1868:

“Because The Hague convention applies only to the use of expanding bullets in [the case of] war, the use of expanding rounds remains legal, or even required, in some circumstances. Examples of this are use of appropriately expanding bullets in hunting, where it is desirable to stop the animal quickly either to prevent loss of a game animal, or ensure a humane death of vermin, and in law enforcement or self defence, where quickly neutralizing an aggressor may be needed to prevent further loss of life, or where the bullet must remain inside the target to prevent collateral damage e.g. on an aircraft.”

More of the same information from the site: Front Porch Politics:

“At the end of last month I reported that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) awarded a bid for 450 million hollow point bullets to defense contractor ATK. This came just two years after awarding ammunition manufacturer Winchester a similar contract for 200 million .40 hollow points and a new bid for 175 million rounds of .223 ammo [in total nearing 1 billion rounds!]. “It seems that this is not enough for “Big Sis”, as the DHS has been nicknamed. Not only does DHS need millions of rounds in .40 hollow points and .223 along with bullet resistant booths, but now it has put out a bid for even more ammunition and this time it is specifically for multiple calibers and training.
If you view the bid online it seems as if they are seeking to train their personnel in the use of firearms that would be most common in citizen’s homes. “The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) will be the recipient of this new ammunition once the contract has been awarded. There is no doubt that this is for training purposes. According to the bid, only 8450 rounds will be purchased and in various calibers from .22 to 30-06.” DHS Ammo Hording.

For training purposes? When are hollow point rounds ever required for training purposes, specifically when the targets are not live but standing objects; typically full metal jacketed bullets are used for this purpose. It’s possible that the powers of the DHS are being expanded to include, to some limited degree, the use of force, or even lethal force in order to secure our nation from terrorist threats.

Yet this in the main resides in the domain of our other intelligence and police communities such as the CIA, DIA, BATF and of course our military – not the DHS. And what terrorist acts have been committed since 9-11 that were significant enough to make the news, or demonstrably destructive in their objective that would justify these huge purchases of ammunition?
I myself haven’t even noticed an aspirin bottle being tampered with! Sure, there have been some isolated incidences such as Andrew Stack III who flew his plane into an IRS building in protest against what he believed to be exorbitant taxation and an illegal IRS entity.
There is a listing of non-Islamic related acts of terror from the years 1990 to 2004 as chronicled by the FBI (curiously enough, the majority of these are not from the ‘right-wing’ though there is some documentation of this, but from liberal Animal and Environmentalist Rights Fronts!).

Yet one is hard pressed to find acts of notable terrorism (I’ve tried repeatedly in different word searches to find such impressively destructive acts that would justify DHS recent purchases to no avail) currently happening in America. Any incidences cited involve the ‘lone wolf extremist’ or very small groups, which are certainly guilty of criminal activity, but guilty of domestic terrorism that coerces society to submit to the perpetrator’s will? Acts that demand government resolution or reformation? Other motivations that can be classified as ‘domestic terrorism’ – or are they simply violent crimes dressed up to look like such?

Yet according to The Patriot Act, enacted under the Bush administration, such crimes are re-defined as ‘Domestic Terrorism’ and so of course, with this as the criteria, Domestic Terrorism is bound to increase. The following are some quotes from this article:

“. . . the FBI has reported that roughly two-thirds of terrorism in the United States was conducted by non-Islamic American extremists from 1980-2001; and from 2002-2005, it went up to 95 percent.”

“With the enactment of the Patriot Act in 2001 (Which would have never been tolerated by the American people if 911 hadn’t happened – see the “Loose Change” film; a link provided on The RED PILL Consortium), the legal definition of "terrorism" was expanded to include domestic as well as international terrorism.

However, alternative definitions still exist at the FBI, Justice Department, Homeland Security Department, and Defense Department. Some descriptive terms (such as "sub-national," "pre-meditated," "noncombatant," etc.) are present in one definition and absent in others. Furthermore, many law enforcement groups, like the FBI, use the labels of domestic terrorism and violent extremism [such as the unfortunately common story of the lone, crazed person ‘going postal’ by shooting several people in a public place, then turning a hand gun on themselves, committing suicide; but is this domestic terrorism, or simply violent crime?] interchangeably.”

So why is it necessary for the DHS to buy up, over the course of the next five years 450 million rounds (in addition to the already purchased hundreds of millions of rounds)? The latest purchase is almost 24% more ammunition required to deliver a fatal shot to every man, woman and child in this nation!? That’s a question many people have been asking these past few weeks, but the DHS isn’t talking!
DHS appears to stand for: ‘Definitely Hesitant to Speak’? (See the following article: DHS Won’t Explain.

But while the DHS is building up their supplies, so are American citizens; last Christmas gun sales were at an all time high. In response to this, the cry for gun control has only gotten louder. Even back during the Clinton administration, such articles as this one from The Economist bemoaned the fact that gun control isn’t as powerful as it should be; that greater gun restriction laws are necessary (however, what the writer seems to ignore is that the only ones likely to obey such laws would be law abiding citizens, not the criminal elements of society. Such criminals in a fully gun controlled society would feel free to prey upon weaponless citizens, unafraid of immediate reprisals. Look at Washington D.C. and NYC where guns are totally prohibited to the law abiding citizens).

Many people I’ve spoken to believe that another Civil War may occur between the ‘Global Socialists’ and the Sovereign American Constitutionalists, and each side appears to be increasing their arms and munitions. What will be the match that lights this powder keg? Could it be the United States’ obedience to the UN directive to disarm all Americans of their guns?

So what else is DHS up to?

There is the branch of TSA (Transportation Security Administration) that travelers across our nation have grown so fond of, being poked, prodded and even groped in some cases and scanned resulting in fully nude pictures; but they are no longer restricting their searches in airports and seaports; they are ‘taking it to the street’ now in what’s known as Operation VIPER (coincidentally (?) this is the same name used by our US Military in Afghanistan in seeking out and seizing caches of weapons by the Taliban and Al Qaida forces):

VIPER stands for: Visible Inter-mobile Prevention and Response Here are some officials explaining this Operation and its justification:

Operation Viper unleashed at Union Station Posted: Jul 14, 2011 3:47 PM MST Updated: Jul 14, 2011 4:50 PM MST By David Kenney JACKSON, MS (WLBT)

- Residents arriving and departing from the Jackson bus and train station, were met by a show of force Thursday from all levels of law enforcement. Representatives from state, local and federal law enforcement departments held a checkpoint at the downtown terminal, searching for illegal activity, and controlled substances. "Operation Viper" is being led by the transportation security administration. The goal is to improve safety for all modes of mass transit. Several k-9 dogs were used to search buses, and luggage compartments for contraband. Some passengers were also sent through security screening checkpoints. Hinds county Sheriff's Department Spokesman Lt. Jeff Scott says,

"We’re glad to participate, we think it's a necessary operation and hopefully it will be a very highly visible deterrent of any kind of illegal activity that would come in off these modes of transportation."

There were no arrests made during this first day of Operation Viper. Copyright WLBT 2011. All rights reserved.

Now please don’t misunderstand me; it’s not my intention to vilify the DHS or TSA. I work at an airport and interact with TSA agents daily. They are hard working, efficient, courteous and professional. I know some of them as Christians and even one attended a fellowship with me for some years. Even some employees of TSA have been decidedly reticent about some of the methods and policies of TSA in searching airport passengers and travelers; some have even self-terminated their employment as a result.

What I am saying is that I can find no justification for this massive buy-up of ammunition; no instances of domestic terrorism that would warrant this action proportionate to the scale of these purchases. What is the DHS anticipating? Why the expansion of TSA searches beyond points of entry (airports, seaports, national borders) in our nation? DHS and its divisions appear to taking initiatives in pre-emptive action, yet what are they anticipating and why when there appears to be a lack of supportive evidence for such actions.

Any system, organization, government agency or even governments themselves that started out with righteous and good intentions can over the course of time and the increased acquisition of power become corrupt and begin to prey upon the very people they’ve been created to protect. It’s a very old story. Given the propensity of human nature, to pretend that ‘it can’t happen here’ is extremely naïve in my opinion. At the orders of such corrupt, bureaucratically bloated entities, underlings would shrug off responsibility for actions from the inappropriate to the heinous by stating, “I was just following orders” as too many (not all) German soldiers did during the reign of Nazism in WW II (See The Nazi Regime in Germany for this and other parallels to today’s culture here in America (i.e. the centralization of power).

Also consider the historically documented excerpt from Front Page Magazine; ploys perpetrated by Hitler and the Nazi government in regards to their taking Czechoslovakia and the current modus operandi of the Palestinians and associated Islamic forces and our own government’s complicity with such politics.

What else is our Federal government and its agencies doing?

There are a lot of rumors flying about, along with a weighty amount of conjecture: one such rumor is that the Federal government, specifically FEMA is buying up record amounts of MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat) – There are denials in the majority responding to this assertion, and yet at the same time, other rumors that are persisting and not without some documentation, are those surrounding the building of or remodeling of existing buildings into ‘Internment Camps’ on US soil.

First of all, there is Operation Garden Plot; also known as The Department of Defense Civil Disturbance Plan (18 USC 1385 Posse Comitatus Act) is a general U.S. Army and National Guard plan to respond to major domestic civil disturbances within the United States. The plan was developed in response to the civil disorders of the 1960s and is now under the control of the U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM).
It provides Federal military and law enforcement assistance to local governments during times of major civil disturbances.”
“Under Homeland Security restructuring, it has been suggested that similar models be followed. “Oversight of these homeland security missions should be provided by the National Guard Bureau based on the long-standing Garden Plot model in which National Guard units are trained and equipped to support civil authorities in crowd control and civil disturbance missions." Testimony of Major General Richard C. Alexander, ANGUS (Ret.), Executive Director, National Guard Association of the United States, Senate Appropriations Committee Hearing on Homeland Defense, April 11, 2002”

Taken from this article, Operation Garden Plot.

DHS is building up its ammunitions supplies for the potential increase of “Domestic Terrorism”; Operation Garden Plot can be reactivated legally in the “times of major civil disturbances”. This Op relates to and is immediately precedent to the program of developing and preparing Internment camps:

Stalag 17 – American Style: FEMA in Prepared Readiness.

“Under "Rex" the President could declare a state of emergency, empowering the head of FEMA to take control of the internal infrastructure of the U.S. and suspend the Constitution. The President could invoke Executive Orders 11000 through 11004 which would draft all citizens into work forces under governmental supervision, empower the postmaster to register all men, women, and children, seize all airports and aircraft, and seize all housing to establish forced relocation of all citizens.” REX 84 FEMA Camps programs that are on the books right now and have been for decades. Here is a video clip from a film produced by the late Linda Thompson, founder of The American Justice Federation.

You will note that this video was made in 1994, almost twenty years ago. Why would we have to worry about threats from such acquisitions of military hardware gathered two decades ago? One could easily ask the question, why should I fear a loaded gun that someone has stored in their house twenty years ago?

Yet FEMA’s current preparations are just as industrious in anticipation of Civic Unrest - H.R. 645.

FEMA Concentration Camps and MARTIAL LAW Coming soon to AMERICA?

Its past, our present and the potential future here in our country:

Part One with Jesse Ventura, interviewing investigators, reporters and government officials.
Part Two with Jesse Ventura.
NOTE: I don’t endorse some of the suppositions, assertions and, or promotions made in these videos.

In Part One of the above video clip, it’s been stated that: “Conspiracy [theorists and] their theories should be banned by Federal Government agencies.” Is this true? Was there really such a suggestion made? YES, read about it here.

President Obama himself addressed associated issues regarding something called Prolonged Detention based on those who are considered ‘potential threat’ (NOTE: This writer does not endorse ENDA or the Occupy Movement).

I have been unable to obtain information significant enough to conclusively confirm or deny many of the assertions made in the following video, but privitized detention and security agencies/private military such as Wackenhut (and Black Water) are definitely real enough. Finally, this information regarding these internment/prison/work camps – their legal establishment as persued by our government for the better of the entire 20th century and current locations of such facilities as provided for at the web site: Friends of Liberty.

Not included in this list of internment camps is a facility on Davis Monthan Air Force Base, whose location is a mere 5 minute drive from my house here in Tucson, AZ that supposedly already has prisoners incarcerated there.

Lastly, on a rather bizarre note, there seems to be a need for and manufacture of guillotines here in America; yes, that’s right – guillotines! When we (my friends and I) decided to move from New York to Arizona, we stopped by a friends house (Central US) for a visit and asked her what she was investigating lately (she had done considerable research into Satanism and satanic crimes committed by youth and secret covens in the mid to late 80’s). She presented us with rather startling information about this ‘thing’ we had heard of called “the new world order”. She showed us file after file of information that was sent to her revealing some of the inner workings of this global conspiracy, underground military facilities known as D.U.M.B.s where military, scientists and 'foreigners' (read that – alien) worked together on Black Ops and Above Top Secret projects. She also showed us copies of receipts of purchased, hydraulic powered (miniature) guillotines.

As you might well imagine, we were quite taken aback by all of this, and were inclined to disbelieve much, if not most of what was shown to us (except for one of us three, who accepted it entirely at face value). When we made our way to Tucson, procured residence and employment, we turned to our own investigation into these matters. That investigation and the information acquired is what has eventually developed into (at least in part) The RED PILL Consortium. Guillotines on U.S. Soil (NOTE: This author does not endorse everything stated in this video).

What Do We Do Now? Have Faith Over Fear! - FROM the MIND of FIRE.

Please also read HE IS OUR PEACE in the MIDST of the STORMS on our primary site, The TRUTH Under FIRE as an encouragement in these darkening days!

We have read the Scriptures for the duration of our Christian experience; the prophecies of the last days, as well as the Last Day, have been known, studied and observed, and in process of observing in their fulfillment or near-fulfillment for some time now.
There is no reason for those acquainted with prophecy to experience shock or dismay as these developments transpire and coalesce into a picture of the very last days scenario as portrayed in the Holy Bible. Do we arm ourselves with guns? Stockpile food? Seek out a secret hideaway for our family and loved ones? Do we flee the country?

Our lives and our very souls are in the hands of our LORD and Savior – He is indeed our LORD and Master; therefore we must seek His face and follow His will for us. If we consider ourselves true disciples of Jesus Christ, then we must not allow any circumstances to dictate our actions and hearts contrary to the conduct of a true disciple. Wisdom would suggest that we prepare ourselves in any way possible, providing that such preparation does not violate our witness for Christ Jesus. The Scripture still tells us to “love our enemies” and to pray for those that hate us.

If what transpires in our day and age happens as I believe it will, we will need the power of the Holy Spirit to fulfill these commands of our LORD Jesus. Again, we must maintain the eternal perspective and understand that no matter how horrendous the events of our near future, we will enjoy the eternal victory in Christ, and for our “light afflictions” we shall receive that “eternal weight of glory” (2 Cor. 4:16-18). Any ounce of suffering for His Name’s sake will reap for us a ton of glorious reward – all to the glory of JESUS Who will sustain us through such hardships!

Most of the church in the world is already suffering persecution to one degree or another. Visit and you can read for yourself of the incredible persecution that our brothers and sisters in Christ are enduring. How can the church here in America believe we will be or ought to be exempt from such experiences? There are many that believe that the church will have to go through the time known as the Great Tribulation or Daniel’s 70th week; this is not the position of this author. I am pre-milllennial in my escatology and believe that before this seven year reign of the Beast occurs, the church will be raptured (1 Thess. 4:16-18) out of this world and delivered into the beautiful glory of heaven where we will worship JESUS!

However - - that said, I likewise believe that (barring the event of the rapture which may or may not preceed it) the church here in America will have a time of persecution and join the body of Christ around the globe in suffering for His Name’s sake!

Let us look to the LORD, our Creator and Redeemer, and entrust to Him the keeping of our lives and our futures just as certainly as we have entrusted Him with our immortal souls.
