Is DHS Ammo For Obama´s
"National Security Force"?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:HollowLeg, 2/12/2013 8:48:16 PM

Gun Control: Our future president in 2008 called for "a civilian national security force that´s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as the military. Should the "bitter-clingers" be worried? As Andrew Malcolm has noted on these pages, the Department of Homeland Security has been buying lots of ammo, enough by one calculation to fight the equivalent of a 24-year Iraqi War. Some have speculated about a link between the stockpiling between candidate Obama´s off-prompter campaign remarks about a national security force and the stockpiling by DHS

People like me have no representation in DC. "My" party, the Republicans, have no voice. They worry more about being invited to the proper cocktail parties. They worry about being criticized by the MSM.

I know there are some really good people in DC. And I don´t know what pressures they´re subjected to. I can only imagine it´s intense.

But I think about NH´s license plate motto: Live Free or Die.

I think it´s time for my representatives to embrace this saying politically. Live Free or Die politically.

1.6 Billion handgun rounds...

People, the 1.6 BILLION rounds purchased by the Dept. of Homeland Security are NOT all HANDGUN rounds...many millions of them are for .223 or 5.56 weapons which are the M-16 type of weapons except these are FULLY automatic capable (just flip the selector switch further for FULLY auto) and are true ASSAULT weapons. Nevertheless,´why´ is the question. I asked my District Congressman, Ralph Hall, his office called me during the weekend and the phone number to call back was so fast I still can´t make it out. I also contacted (e-Mail) my Federal Senators...Mr.Cornyn´s office initially said the figures are exaggerated. I will call them all again and press them on this issue. They don´t know, don´t care, or don´t want to say...Right now I don´t know which is the right choice.

DHS may have a lot of ammunition, but Congress is never going to appropriate the money for Obama to have his own personal National Security Force, that´s just not going to happen, as whatever congress critters who voted for that would immediately become unelectable.

I think some government-designated buyers are buying up the popular rifle calibers to remove those rounds from private ownership.

It´s a clever way to diminish the utility of guns.

I´m glad I´ve been buying bargain amm over the last few years and I´m stocked. I just buy now some lesser-used ammo that are common in Eastern Europe.

7.62x39 is available now, and that´s why any personal armory has at least 1 AK variant in it.

Has anybody besides myself pondered why TSA agents seem to be showing up, unbidden, at railroad stations and bus depots and major sporting events, among other places? Evidently they are even running roadside checkpoints ("May I see your papers, please"). Someone tell Gov. Jan Brewer.

Energy Policy: The president falsely claims that the jobs created by the pipeline from Canada would be but a "blip relative to the need," ignoring his own State Department and the unions that support him. At the rate President Obama is going, he may claim that building the Keystone XL pipeline will actually cost jobs. In an interview with the New York Times last Saturday, he argued that the best estimate is 2,000 initial construction jobs followed by no more than an additional 100 jobs, a mere "blip."

Energy: A Saudi prince has warned that his oil-reliant nation is under threat because of fracking technology being developed in the U.S. and spreading around the world. OPEC is now caught between Riyadh and a hard place. Indicative of the panic rippling through the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries over the U.S.-led fracking boom, billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal says his Gulf Arab kingdom needs to reduce its reliance on crude oil and diversify its revenues, lest the era of gold-plated toilets come to an end.

Welfare: SNAP, the U.S. food stamp program, has become a conduit for redistributing wealth and fundamentally transforming America, as welfare recipients now send food overseas and the White House markets to illegals. While the administration laments the distraction of "phony" scandals like Benghazi and Fast and Furious that leave real Americans dead, it trots out phony statistics about how well the economy is doing.

The wisdom of President Reagan´s words have been lost under an administration that believes government is the entity from which all blessings flow. So has Margaret Thatcher´s observation that the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people´s money.

For those who snoozed through civics class, recent news events have provided an education on the U.S. Constitution, the bedrock of American democracy, assaulted by an administration that views it as obstructionist and irrelevant and by courts that view it as a "living document" — which is to say it means whatever they say it means on any given day.

An oil-laden train not unlike those rolling down American tracks derailed and exploded Saturday in a Canadian town, proving why pipelines are safer and environmentalist opposition to a pipeline from Canada is misguided. At least 13 people were reported dead and 37 missing in the charred Quebec town of Lac-Megantic, 130 miles east of Montreal, after the accident created an inferno of burning crude. Some may never be found, likely vaporized by the sheer intensity of the blaze that burned for 36 hours. Canada´s oil boom, due largely to development

Regulation: No longer the stuff of science fiction, a little-noticed change in energy-efficiency requirements for appliances could lead to government controlling the power used in your home and how you set your thermostat. In a seemingly innocuous revision of its Energy Star efficiency requirements announced June 27, the Environmental Protection Agency included an "optional" requirement for a "smart-grid" connection for customers to electronically connect their refrigerators or freezers with a utility provider. The feature lets the utility provider regulate the appliances´ power consumption, "including curtailing operations during more expensive peak-demand times."

Energy Policy: The president said Tuesday the pipeline from Canada should be built if the State Department finds it will not add to carbon pollution and is in our national interest. But State already has — twice. ´Allowing the Keystone pipeline to be built requires a finding that doing so would be in our nation´s interest," the president said in his speech on climate change. "And our national interest will be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution." As with Benghazi, President Obama must not talk to the State Department much.

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape

KOMO-TV reports that the city´s Office of Civil Rights instructed city workers in a recent internal memo to avoid using the words because some may find them offensive. "Luckily, we´ve got options," Elliott Bronstein of the Office for Civil Rights wrote in the memo obtained by the station. "For ´citizens,´ how about ´residents?´"
