Executive Orders, Internment Camps, and the American Police State

ALERT: Scalia predicts internment camps for Americans as Obama’s police state grows.

Take Action! Demand Congress to DEFUND and DISMANTLE the police state!

Conservative American,
Today marks the seventy-second anniversary of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s infamous Executive Order No. 9066 that incarcerated Americans of Japanese descent.
While this event is a fact of the past, it’s a necessary reminder that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights have been overturned in our nation’s history for the sake of “the emergency” — it is also a reminder of the power of the executive order.
Shockingly, Justice Scalia suspects the federal government will likely bring back 1942-style internment camps for Americans… he recently told law students in Hawaii that “you’d kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again.”
“It was wrong, but I would not be surprised to see it happen again in time of war,” said Scalia this month. “It’s no justification but it is the reality.”
While we aren’t suggesting a round-up of Americans is currently in the works, we do know that the American Police State has undoubtedly grown stronger under Barack Obama – the new champion of Executive Orders – and Americans are necessarily concerned.
Less than two weeks ago we saw Homeland Security solicit sniper ammo (more below) to add to their current stockpile, and a week before that even the United States Postal Service placed an order seeking ammunition.
As Conservative Action Alerts contributor John Whitehead says:
“[W]hy do domestic agencies having nothing to do with national defense, such as the Postal Service, the Department of Education, the IRS and the Social Security Administration (SSA), need mass quantities of ammunition and weaponry?”
Sadly, We the People can’t answer this. We have no idea why these purchases are being made and what the federal government is preparing for.
This is why we’ve got to demand Congress to start taking action, asking questions, and begin to defund and dismantle the expanding police state!

DHS Continues Ammo Buys, Solicits Sniper Ammo

The Department of Homeland security is looking to add 141,000 rounds of sniper ammunition to their current stockpile.
According to fbo.gov, the DHS placed an order this month for approximately 7,058 boxes of Hornady .308 Win 168gr A-MAX TAP Ammunition – rounds that the manufacturer calls its “most accurate … sophisticated boattail hollow point.”
And these rounds aren’t the federal government’s economical option either; consider the following comment from James Smith:
“Hornady ammunition is not for the budget minded, and the Federal government will pay a premium price for their sniper ammunition: approximately $1.20 for each round, when they can get a lower grain .308 round for as little as $0.69 for a 147 grain .308 round …”
These costly purchases prove that Homeland Security has not discontinued its ammunition stockpiling even though the Department already possesses hundreds of millions of rounds. It also paints the DHS’ claim that the bullets are used for “training purposes” to be a sham seeing that hollow-point bullets are not used for exercises.
Looking at the bigger picture, Obama’s militarization of the DHS is right in line with his goal of building a non-military “national security force” – the one he referenced when he said the following in his 2008 campaign:
“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.”
If this is the case, Congress has got to defund these purchases immediately.
It’s important that we contact members of the United States Congress right away and demand that they investigate these purchases and begin to defund Obama’s police state!

In a special committee meeting last year, Rep. Jason Chaffetz pointed out that the Department of Homeland Security – at that time having roughly 260 million rounds – possesses more rounds than the United States Army per capita!
“Based on Homeland Security’s allocation of 1,300 to 1,600 rounds per officer,” said Rep. Chaffetz. “Homeland Security officers used roughly a thousand rounds more per person, or, per officer, than the average Army officer …”
Here are a just few of the DHS’ ammunition solicitations from that fiscal year; seehere, here, here, and here.
The DHS’ Transportation Security Administration is also being armed even though, at least under current policy, TSA agents inside airports currently carry no weapons.
Last August, the TSA solicited 3,454,000 rounds of .347 caliber ammunition.
Government Security News reported that, with such a stock, “the TSA could fire off more than 9,400 rounds per day, every day of the year, to consume that entire quantity annually.”
Again, this solicitation was made for “training purposes” …
These numbers just don’t add up. Why does the DHS need, as a whole, more ammo than the U.S. Army – the constitutional arm of the federal government created for our defense? And why do unarmed TSA agents need to stockpile enough “training” ammo to fire-off 3,321 20-round boxes per week for an entire year?
Whether the Executive Branch is simply purchasing excessive amounts of ammunition for back-door gun-control – viz. evaporating the ammunition supply - or for more sinister reasons, it’s absolutely necessary for Congress to take action and intervene!
We’re calling on you to send your blast faxes to as many members as you can today –

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.”
Sadly, it appears that Barack Obama’s “fundamentally transformed America” includes such a force… made of non-defense executive departments and agencies.
While it is true that all branches of government have encroached upon our God-given freedoms – the Congress and the Courts both playing a part – America’s overgrown Executive is chiefly to blame.
Through executive orders, actions, memoranda, and other forms of “executive legislation” Barack Obama is turning America into a police state.
Last year we saw Obama’s full-blown attack against the Second Amendment, and just last month we saw him recommit himself to a “Year of Action” without Congress.
How much longer will Congress – a separate, but equal power – allow the Constitution and the Rule of Law be trampled by Obama and his hired men?
As Obama has declared himself as an enemy of the Constitution, it’s time for principled lawmakers to start stopping him and his lawless agenda!
The House and the Senate must take action against Obama’s dictatorship by fully defunding and dismantling his police state programs!

For America,
