It is a heavily documented fact the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has bought 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition(much of which is outlawed by the Geneva Convention and includes a startling amount specialized for snipers), fully automatic assault riflesheavily armored assault vehicles with gun ports, and gads of riot gear.

As DHS is a domestic operation, it would almost seem the organization is prepping for a war against the American people, and it now has 30 years worth of ammunition with which to do so.

To further back up that hypothesis, on FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness site, a listing for Program J, known as “Field Force Operations,” details how DHS has been training state and local law enforcement “to prepare for and successfully mitigate threat incidents involving civil disorder” should “National Special Security Events” or NSSEs occur.

The site continues,

“Activities included in this course are mass arrest procedures, team tactics, demonstrator tactics, crowd dynamics and mob behavior, use of riot control agents and less lethal munitions, and the employment of personal protective equipment (PPE).”

Some of the training’s “critical skill sets” include how to:

“Understand how the First, Fourth, Eight and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution relate to civil action/disorder; express the considerations and processes for conducting mass arrests during civil action/disorder; act as a member of an arrest team and remove an arrestee using both two- and four-officer carry techniques; and select for use, based on the liabilities and limitations of each, the best riot control agents and less lethal munitions.”

The three-day course takes place at Homeland Security’s Center for Domestic Preparedness at Fort McClellan, Alabama.

The class is coupled with another, “Field Force Extrication Tactics,” which provides students with “knowledge and skills regarding the tools and information necessary to extricate an individual safely from a protester device.” This course is not limited only to law enforcement, but emergency management, health, fire, EMTs, and public safety communications personnel among others. One issue discussed is, “Distinguishing the roles and responsibilities of the extrication team from other law enforcement assets.” Teams here are also referred to as “civil disobedience teams” or CDTs.

A description on the Texas Department of Public Safety site claims one of the Field Force Extrication Tactics course objectives is “To identify and protect protester rights as guaranteed by the First Amendment while still conducting extrication procedures.”

Registration for the initial Field Force Operations course is limited only to state and local law enforcement, and includes a four-step process with a medical screening form. Participants must, “have the ability to march 100 yards, lift 185 pounds with assistance, kneel on one knee, run 20 yards intermittently, stand for long periods of time (approximately 3 hours), shout commands, and don, properly seal, and doff an air purifying respirator.”

While these courses have been available for several years now, it puts all of these bulk weapons, ammo and riot gear purchases into much clearer perspective in regard to exactly what DHS is gearing up and training our law enforcement for: mass arrests of the American people.

In fact, many of the descriptions of these courses seem eerily similar to a leaked Army manual Infowars reported on last summer for “civil disturbance operations.” As Paul Joseph Watson wrote, the document “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.”

Why is DHS training with shooting targets of pregnant women?

In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, our Second Amendment rights are under constant, heavy attack. Homeland Security has led the charge for years, portraying American gun owners and political enemies of the state as terrorists.

Add that to the fact that DHS has paid $2 million for “training aids” to a supplier of “non-traditional” shooting targets  — actual shooting targets of pregnant women in nurseries, elderly people, and little kids referred to as “no more hesitation” targets — and this situation has gotten way beyond out of hand.

DHS has also announced its idea of public safety includes unleashing spy drones on the public. Recently released government documents also show DHS has customized predator drones for domestic use to track cell phones and identify whether or not a citizen is carrying a gun.

While the documented pieces of this disturbing puzzle continue to paint a terrifying picture, the mainstream media would instead have us believe that it’s all just a conspiracy theory, that all these DHS purchase orders officially posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website  are merely figments of our imaginations.

But Infowars has continuously covered Homeland Security’s neverending gear up against the American people. How much more evidence is needed for people to wake up to this blaring, in-our-face police state takeover?

If something looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it might just be a duck. If an organization releases reports on how ducks are terrorists, develops duck-related trainings to mass arrest ducks in the interest of national security, and makes purchase orders for billions of duck-subduing and duck hunting items, it is reasonably safe to conclude there is an objective here concerning the total subjugation of ducks.
