DHS Classifies New Ammo Purchaces Following Controversy

I rarely post articles in full here but I think this one is so important that everyone should know what our own government is doing. And the fact that they are now trying to hide their actions.  Over one BILLION rounds of ammo have been bought by DHS, NOAA, Social Security and other agency's in the past few months.  What we need to be doing is asking why and demanding an answer.  Of course we won't get an answer from them.  We have to come to our own conclusions.  
  I don't watch t.v. so I can't be 100% sure but I'm willing to bet that this is not being reported on the alphabet news stations. ( ABC, NBC, CNN etc.)

The Department of Homeland Security has redacted information relating to the quantity of bullets it is buying following a controversy concerning the agency’s purchase of over a billion rounds of ammo, which many fear is a sign the federal government is preparing for civil unrest in the United States.
Despite the fact that documents are only supposed to be redacted if authorized by Congress or for national security reasons, a solicitation posted on the FedBizOpps website yesterday concerning ammunition purchases made by the DHS on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) contains numerous blacked out sections.
The classified portions of the document include references to the amount of 223 62 and 223 64 grain ammunition being purchased.
The solicitation explains how the contract put out by the DHS to purchase the ammunition was not subject to “full and open competition,” a process justified by what the DHS claims was an “unusual and compelling urgency” to acquire the bullets, noting that there is a shortage of bullets which is threatening a situation which could cause “substantial safety issues for the government” should law enforcement officials not be adequately armed.
The Department of Homeland Security’s decision to black out sections of the document, including the number of bullets being purchased, is likely to be related to a massive controversy which has snowballed over the last few weeks pertaining to concerns as to why the federal agency has purchased well over a billion rounds of bullets over the last 6 months alone.
The DHS’ decision back in March to purchase of 450 million rounds of .40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage prompted questions as to why the federal agency required such powerful bullets and in such large quantities merely for training purposes.
This was followed up by a more recent order for a further 750 million rounds of assorted ammunition, including bullets that can penetrate walls.
Given the fact that the DHS is also acquiring riot gear in preparation for civil unrest which could take place at the upcoming DNC, RNC and presidential inauguration, the purchase of ammunition in such massive numbers has stoked fears that the federal government could be preparing to use force against the American people.

This screenshot illustrates how the DHS has blacked out information pertaining to the amount of bullets being purchased.
The trigger for this could be an economic collapse that causes angry Americans to flood the streets similar to scenes witnessed across Europe over the last two years.
As Mike Adams writes, “The U.S. government clearly sees the writing on the wall. What lays ahead for America is a day of unbearable reckoning. The financial collapse will wipe out savings accounts, pensions, investment funds and equities of the working class, all across the nation. Imagine bank accounts being reset to zero, “bank holidays” enforced at gunpoint. That will unleash a wave of violent protests, social chaos and even talk of revolution. The government will almost certainly respond with a declaration of Martial Law, the rolling out of highway checkpoints, and before long, the use of live ammo on unruly protesters.”
The Social Security Administration has also recently purchased a large quantity of hollow point bullets, potentially signaling that authorities fear welfare riots could occur if benefit payments cannot be made. The NOAA also recently purchased 46,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition.
The DHS’ decision to censor information related to bullet purchases for immigration authorities could also be an attempt to assuage concerns that the agency is expecting to have to resort to force to deal with a mass influx of immigrants from Mexico.
Back in December, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano directed ICE to prepare for a substantial inundation of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people.
During the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, it was revealed that the federal government had established a contingency program under the pretext of a mass influx of immigrants called Rex 84. The program was a secretive “scenario and drill” developed by the federal government to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, assign military commanders to take over state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens determined by the government to be “national security threats.”


  1. The blacked out information speaks volumes. Not much time left to prepare I'm afraid...

    1. That's what strikes me as well. All this information has previously been available, yet now they want to start hiding things.
      Prep on as much as possible is all I know to do. Oh Craig? No trout? ;-)


  2. Hmm, now, I may be just a little bit paranoid but heres the scenario (or close to) I for see
    Obama signs up as many as he can on welfare, with no work required.
    He forces through regulations and flim flam laws even more business closures adding to the unemployment rolls…which are under-reported….as only those still drawing funds are actually reported. The “Official” numbers exclude those who have run out of time/funds.

    Small farms, gardens and homesteads are shut down for “possible health concerns” and are illegal
    Gun ownership restrictions are placed with mandatory turn in as in door to door pick up Civil unrest is inflamed due to gun restrictions and lack of food.
    Martial law is declared! Freedom as we know it is gone for good. Welcome to the “Socialist Quadrants of America”
    I pray I'm wrong!

  3. Don't give up your guns without a fight!!!

  4. Here is a far out theory, The people in power are getting ready to declare military law if there beloved leader looses in November.
    Sincerely Stepinit

  5. Seems as though "they" keep preparing while the masses are entertained...Sigh.

    1. JMD it bugs me to no end that most people don't hear anything but what is on the TV. After moving here we decided not to put the TV back in the house. It was one of the best things I think we've ever done. I've learned more since turning off that thing than most of the sheeple will ever even know.

  6. i worked for ATK..the parent company of federal ammunition untill 1 july....the company released in a company press release many of the details of this contract...unfortunatly much, actually most, of that info was not picked up by people outside the company.
    first, the NOAA order was a clerical error..the agency was actually the fish and game commission.

    second, and most importantly...the majority of ammunition was OPTIONED for future delevery...contract today at todays prices, take delevery IF NEEDED, at a future date..
    if you take a look at the numbers of bullets ordered for each agency, and the numbers of people carrying AND TRAINING with those bullets, it isn't a grossly out of proportion number.

    why hollow points?? don't know, other than they are the cheapest bullets out there....hey, maybe somebody in washington was actually trying to be fiscally responsable.....NNNAAAAAAAA lol

    1. Just a couple of things extron that really bother me. First is their decision to start redacting the orders. Why? They have always been available for viewing.
      I understand about the NOAA error but that doesn't explain why Social Security has ordered up so much ammo. Nor does it explain why the Dept of Education and the IRS ordered such huge amounts. There are other agencies that also have contracts.
      If you will take a look at the amount of ammo ordered since last March you will see that the numbers add up to almost one and a half BILLION. Why does the DHS need this much ammo? You talk about training and I've heard others say the same thing. You don't practice with this type of ammo.
      Sorry about going on a mini rant. It's just this whole thing has me very worried

  7. But we'll be subjected to limitations on ammo purchases. Laws that only pertain to "commoners", I suppose. The "elite" and hired guns, as usual, will not have to deal with any laws imposed upon us lowly citizens.

  8. My concern is all the secrecy by the Obama administration. These covert actions will surly raise serious questions about his intentions. We all know he will not go quietly into the night. His claims about preparing for riots due to government insolvency for welfare recipients is another excuse to gain the upper hand to control the people.

    My question: Will his hired guns fire on the citizens? Is he allowing the Illegals in to the US to arm them to fight against US?

  9. ...we've known all along what was coming, the last couple years they're not even hiding it...just use this info as a catalyst to procure more 'stores' split is 50-50 again, ammo to 'food'...lay in some caches, as the "door to door" thing is an inevitability...GodBlessUsAll

  10. Conspiracy theories are easy answers for weak minded people.

  11. As are comments from Anonymous posters.

  12. Our revolutionary war was fought over 235 years ago and our civil war at least 150+, so let's not be looking for a do-over.
    It does seem though to be inevitible that we will be going through some hard times in the near future because of various factors like inflation, wealth destruction and the inability to pay down the debt problem.
    More time and effort by all concerned needs to be put into our nation's problem solving instead of worrying so much about conspiracy theories.
