When Barack Hussein Obama mentioned the need for a national civilian security force every bit as powerful as the regular military, I had to ask myself a simple question: why? Why does America need a militarized security force every bit as powerful as the U.S. military? Are we at war with the American people?
Now I’m wondering if the Obama Administration is transforming the Department of Homeland Defense (DHS) into the de facto “national civilian security force.”
DHS has stockpiled some two billion rounds of ammunition and recently requested 7,000 “personal defense weapons” (PDW’s)—short-barreled (SBR’s), select-fire M4 carbines, which are “suitable for personal protection,” according to DHS.
Ironically, AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, which can be legally owned by civilians, are referred to as “assault rifles,” which Obama calls “weapons of war.”
Not too long ago, The Blaze reported that the Navy SEAL’s were using targets shaped like Muslim women. The unindicted co-conspirators of the Islamic front group CAIR were offended by the use of these targets and complained bitterly to the federal government:
The Navy will not use a target depicting a Muslim woman holding a gun at a new training range for SEALs in Virginia Beach.
The announcement came hours after the Council on American-Islamic Relations asked the Pentagon to remove the target. A picture of the cardboard target, which shows a woman in a headscarf holding a pistol, was published in The Virginian-Pilot on Tuesday. The image shows verses of the Quran hanging on the wall behind the woman, which also generated criticism from the group.
Nihad Awad, executive director of the Washington-based council, said in the letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta dated Friday that the target “is offensive and sends a negative and counterproductive message to trainees and to the Muslim-majority nations to which they may be deployed.”
Each day that passes I become more fearful and creeped out by the Obama Administration’s machinations. I have never before feared my own government like I do now.

Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. is a 21-year designer and full service provider of training targets for the DHS, the Justice Department and thousands of law enforcement agencies throughout the country.
The company’s website offers a line of “No More Hesitation” targets ”designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training.” The targets are, “meant to help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusual targets for the first time.”
The targets include “pregnant woman threat,” “older man with shotgun,” “older man in home with shotgun,” “older woman with gun,” “young school aged girl,” “young mother on playground,” and “little boy with real gun.”
Why are top training target suppliers for the government supplying the likes of the DHS with “non-traditional threat” targets of children, pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds, and elderly American gun owners unless there is a demand for such items?
This is particularly alarming given the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has purchased roughly 2 billion rounds of ammunition over the course of the last year, enough to wage a near 30 year war.
In comparison, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month.
The DHS also purchased no less than 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles last September, labeling them “Personal Defense Weapons.”
The fact that targets of armed pregnant women, children, mothers in playgrounds, and American gun owners in general are being represented as “non traditional threats” “for the first time” is deeply concerning given the admitted preparations for civil unrest undertaken by Homeland Security as well as other federal agencies.
A leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” also outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.
