ALERT: Bill gives DHS power to establish 'emergency centers.'. Take Action: Demand Congress to DEFUND and DISMANTLE the police state!

Conservative American,

It's back. The "National Emergency Centers Establishment Act" has been reintroduced in the 113th Congress.

The bill, HR 390, was quietly introduced on January 23rd while major media outlets were focusing on the pageantry of Barack Obama's second inauguration.

Sponsored by Florida Democrat Rep. Alcee Hastings, the bill would establish "not fewer than" six "emergency centers" throughout the country. The locations are designated in accordance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency's alternative "map" of the United State which consists of ten-zones (not states).

In order to establish these crisis facilities, the bill provides the DHS power to re-open and operate former and existing military facilities for their own use.

While the bill expressly states that these federal facilities are needed "to provide temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster," how can we be sure that they wouldn't be used for, as many have said, internment camps?

Former Rep. Ron Paul called such fears "justified" when he spoke to Glenn Beck about the bill when it was first introduced in the 11th Congress as HR 645.

So the question is: do we want our Congressman to give Obama's Department of Homeland Security even more power than it already has?

Government grows with every crisis; that's why we have a bigger police state today than ever been before. Do we want to consent for its further expansion?

We must demand our Representatives and Senators to oppose bills like HR 390 - not only that, we must demand that they begin to dismantle and defund the federal police state altogether!

Some of our Nation's founders rightly warned against "standing armies," having the memory of King George III's continental troops and their tyranny fresh in their minds.

It was James Madison who said that, "A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty."

Madison is being proven correct today; his statement rings true in regards to Obama's Department of Homeland Security.

Would the Great Virginian Founder have guessed that, in addition to an Army and Navy, the U.S. President would wield his very own domestic security force?

The fact is, Obama and Janet Napolitano's DHS is becoming more and more militarized. In its most recent move, Homeland Security bought nearly three-thousand fifteen-ton tanks!

That's right; the DHS just purchased 2,717 Mine Resistant Armor Protected Vehicles -- or MRAPs - which they have retrofitted to operate American streets.

These "light tanks" are more than capable of withstanding major combat.

Navistar Defense, the company that builds MRAP vehicles, describes these heavily armored vehicles as able to "withstand ballistic arms fire, mine blasts, IEDs, and other emerging threats."

The question is this: What on earth is this ever-growing DHS expecting?

They are literally preparing for war.

Remember, this same department also possesses of over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition!

Andrew Malcom notes in his piece at Investors that ammunition in this amount could've serviced the government's peak military involvement in Iraq - when 5.5 million rounds were fired per month - for twenty-four years!

Malcom adds:

"But DHS has been silent about its need for numerous orders of bullets in the multiple millions. Indeed, Examiner writer Ryan Keller points out Janet Napolitano's agency illegally redacted information from some ammunition solicitation forms following media inquiries.

According to one estimate, just since last spring DHS has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm. That's sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times. Including illegal immigrants."


(For DHS ammunition solicitations see here, here, here, and here.)

Sarah Palin, not one to be taken for a conspiracy theorist, believes that the Executive Branch is accumulating rounds in order to quell civil unrest that she believes will result from economic collapse based on our unsustainable national debt.

Palin wrote on her Facebook page: "Put a fork in us. We're finished. We're going to default eventually and that's why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest."

Congress must prevent the Executive Branch from expanding its personal military - one that is literally capable of waging war on Americans - and defund these out-of-control, unconstitutional DHS purchases and programs!

Obama's DHS has been stockpiling weapons and ammunition - hollow-points no less - for what purpose? Remember, Homeland Security is placing these orders, not the Department of Defense! In fact, the DHS just recently requested an additional 7,000 "personal defense weapons."

Is Obama's "civilian military" being assembled under our noses - the one he hinted at during his 2008 campaign when he said,

"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."


(Note: The defense budget at the time of this statement was $439 billion; to keep the "civilian" force "just as well-funded" would require an additional $438 billion.)

Georgia's Rep. Paul Broun says that Obama's "civilian military force" is:

"totally against freedom, it's not in the best interest of the American people ... [it's] exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany, it's exactly what the Soviet Union did. In fact, every fascist dictatorship [had] established a national police force or national security force ...As a peace-loving, freedom-loving American who believes in the Constitution as our founding fathers meant it to be, I'm just extremely fearful of this kind of mentality."



So far as one can tell, Rep. Broun has been proven absolutely correct.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Jim Garrow told Ben Swann in an interview that the Obama Administration, right now, is dispelling military officers that aren't willing to fire on American citizens!

(Click here to watch the full interview.)


Garrow said, "... the Obama Administration is in fact pushing the military into doing that that are a breach of the Constitution and a breach of the Second Amendment."

Since Obama took office, military training exercises in public locations have not been uncommon - in fact, they are described as "routine."

Just last month, for example, black helicopters were "buzzing around" Miami. Their purpose? Police told the Miami Herald:

"This ... routine training conducted by military personnel [is] designed to ensure the military's ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirement."


In case that isn't scary enough, read this comment from the Examiner:

"Nevertheless, the sight of soldiers rappelling onto rooftops and the sound of gunfire have many concerned.

At one point, a photographer in Miami captured video of a military helicopter firing its machine guns as it flew over an area freeway. The chopper was firing blanks, but an artist visiting the city apparently didn't know that.

'I heard the machine gun fire and then I hit the deck...I didn't know what to expect, and it was one of the loudest things I'd ever heard,' Josh Epperson said."


While Obama's DHS is loading-up on ammunition - enough rounds to plug every American about six-times - and buying "assault weapons" - the very kinds that gun-grabbers are trying to remove from the hands of Americans - many Congressmen remain sitting on their hands!

When will Congress stand-up and fight for the people they claim to represent?

When will they flex their muscles and check the power of the overgrown Executive Branch?

Congressional action is long overdue and things are only getting worse... action is needed now! They must take action and defund Obama's police state!

In the Virginia Ratifying Convention of 1778, George Mason identified one of King George III's tactics to control the colonists: disarmament.

Mason said:

"Forty years ago, when the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually ..."


Our founders knew well that big government always prefers to rule by disarmament, because an unarmed populace - like Mason rightly noted - is an "enslaved" one.
