Obama admin stonewalling on big ammo buildup

Members of Congress are demanding the Obama administration explain why it is stockpiling a huge arsenal of ammunition and weapons.

The Department of Homeland Security bought more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the last year, as well as thousands of armored vehicles.

Rep. Timothy Huelscamp, R-Kan., wants to know what DHS plans to do with all that firepower, but he can’t get an answer.

A reporter for We Are Change asked Huelscamp at the Conservative Political Action Conference last week why DHS needs weapons of war.

“They have no answer for that question. They refuse to answer to answer that,” Huelscamp said.

“I’ve got a list of questions of various agencies about multiple things. Far from being the most transparent administration in the world, they are the most closed-nature, opaque and they refuse to let us know what is going on, so I don’t have an answer for that. And multiple members of Congress are asking those questions,” he added.

    Congress:
    We do not allow rogue Agencies. We do not allow rogue Agencies to arm themselves. We do not allow rogue Agencies to violate Our Constitution. No exceptions for the DOJ or HSA/TSA.

    Janet Napolitano and Barack Obama are building a rogue military force. No accountability = no Agency. Congress, you need to enforce gun control inside Federal government Agencies, and you MUST enforce accountability.

    We the People are NOT amused by these games and Our tolerance for TREASON is ending.

      ZERO Tolerance for TREASON!

    Start defunding these agencies immediately!They work for us! We don’t work for them!Conficate these items they bought and investigate their need!

  • Gary Ray

    Members of congress, when are you going to get down and start checking these questions out. where Is this e-legal ammo going, according to the geneva convention. What about these 50,000 uniforms, for who? Why all these armored vehicles? Why all the vinal casket liners down south. Why all the fema camps being built In the south west? And what about the e-legal people being seen In tennessee.. As soon as his private army Is assembled, he won’t need congress any more. How about a trip to one of these fema camps.? Is congress a part of the problem or solution?

    We’re becoming a police state. The full article had a link to another article telling how the feds were trying to hold Fed Ex and UPS responsible for illegally shipped prescriptions. .40 cal suggests police operations rather than military… still scary, though.

  • June Gagnon

    Bring those DHS employees (especially big fat sis) for another “chat session”; if they still “refuse” to answer, then have the House Sargent-at-Arms arrest and remove them, toss them in the lock-up and keep them there till they decide to cooperate. You DO have a Sargent-at-Arms and that is, precisely, his job! The next “best step” is to “completely defund” DHS and any “attached” agencies!

    Lets see 2.6 billion rounds, heavy urban assault vehicles, cops in tactical gear, Army, and Guard doing urban assault drills over major American cities, FEMA camps getting manned and ready. Oh I don’t know, maybe their just going out for a picnic. My ASS, this is a build up for war against the American people. Pure and simple.

    Remember early in o’s term he said he wanted a force within the US that was just as capable as the US military he is now doing this with the DHS. The DHS will not be hindered by the posse comitatus law and the members of DHS are already trained to ignore to Constitution as with the TSA searchs, or the data mining that is being done to e-mails, tweets etc. This will be his army within the US when the dollars fails due to the fed policies of QE infinity. I hope I am just being over reactionary but no country has in history been able to do what the Fed is doing without dire results.

      HE IS A SNEAKY LYING DECITFUL CON ARTIST MUSLIM AND HE SUCKERED ALL YOU SHEEP . NOW YOU SHEEP WILL WANT US REAL AMERICANS TO PROTECT YOU > I SAY NO > YOU WILL BE THE FIRST TO GO ,

    • Rosie46

      He actually said that before he was elected and people voted for him anyway. Then they have removed that statement from the speeches and recordings of the speeches. You are not over reacting as everything he has done points to him destroying this country. He should be impeached now and the Democrats should wake up, because once he takes control and establishes a police state they are just excess baggage.

    YOU WILL NEVER GET THE TRUTH > SO DO NOT EXPECT IT . THEY KNOW A REV IS COMING AND ARE GETTING ( LIKE HITLER ) >>> PREPARED

  • Rosie46

    Fire Napolitano and Holder and impeach Obama.

  • don

    Obama is filling the Black Panthers his personal army’s cash of ammunition. And the Black Panthers are running guns while stocking up on weapons for Obama’s army.

  • DMAC73

    I hope they get to the bottom of this crappy hording og ammo. I doubt it because everyone is terrified of this administration. for some reason. Why????

  • george

    My understanding was that CONGRESS, not obama or any other agency doled out the money. If that is the case, a majority of congress must be approving what is happening. Or are they just taking their salary and cushy benefits from us for doing nothing? Somebody somewhere along the line is cheating like crazy here.

    • liliq

      If Congress approved the purchase, it would’ve been under Feinstein/Boxer/Pelosi

  • OLDDAD

    DHS has clearly shown nothing but contempt for Congress, They ahould be defunded and shut down and all their weapons of war seized and sent back to the military where they belong. Obozzo is preapring for a military style Coup to allow him to seize the dictatorship he desires.

  • PatrioTom

    The dollar will implode. The free $hit will come to a halt. The parasites will burn down their hoods and come to the suburbs and rural areas to steal your $hit. This ammo and weaponry will be used against those of us that defend ourselves from these attacks……all in the name of social justice! The latest unconstitutional move for gun control is clearly an effort to weaken our ability to defend ourselves from these onslaughts! All of this is a pre-planned destruction of America by the Progressive socialist left currently led by BHO and the ObamaNostra crime family!!! Prepare, Prepare, prepare, prepare, prepare, prepare!!!!!!!

  • John

    You go Tim Huelscamp from a fellow proud Kansan!! Don’t give up on this ..push it to the limit!

  • Big Sheepdog CCW

    Let’s see. We’ve been in Afghanistan for over 10 years and have we been able to slow down the guns in that country. Are the Afghan insurgents allowing our soldiers to slaughter their comrades? If such a movement occurs within the borders of the United States, the Hessians will pay dearly for waging war on innocent American people. There will be no quarter, no prisoners taken. Sure they have drones but we have people who know how to hack into their systems and order the drone to self destruct or attack their home base. There are a ample supply of hunters, ex-Viet Nam Vets, retired Navy Seals and other retired Military who can still pull a trigger. DHS trainees won’t receive the degree of training that our retired vets have. There are over 800,000 hunters with scoped rifles, compound bows, crossbows & other primitive weapons who know how to hide, ambush, use a knife and other survival techniques. Most of the DHS trainees will be city kids who will pee their pants if the hear a panther scream or find a snake in their bed.
    Look at the casualties of the American Revolution and the American Civil War and multiply it by 100. A lot of us are sheep but there are many more who are wolves dressed as sheep.
