Sorry, this one makes me really angry. I know the Vaughns. They are childhood friends of mine. Aaron’s Dad and I grew up in the same community. This not just makes me angry, it makes me sick on top of it. That’s all I’ll say before I do lose my cool. Yeah, you need to vote for this man, this party…who cares nothing about the people who help them get there….

2 Hours of Jumah Prayers…but the Catholics Aren’t Welcome at the DNC

Comments Off on 2 Hours of Jumah Prayers…but the Catholics Aren’t Welcome at the DNC

The Archbishop of New York isn’t welcome, but Muslim prayers will permeate the DNC. Even though Fox News is carrying this to show fairness, I’m not sure I can stomach watching it. Do they think the Muslim vote is going to carry them over the top? From renewamerica.com:

Obama and Islam are taking over America–just as planned

 

By Laurie Roth

The headlines are building about the DNC Convention. Islam is all over it. Family Security Matters says that they are expecting over 20,000 Muslims to attend. The convention has announced there will be “Jumah” prayers for two hours before the convention. We are told the “purpose” for this event is to address the issues faced by the Muslim-Americans. Poor Muslims…we make it hard sometimes for them to shred our Constitution, blow up buildings and people. Usually we make it easy.

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch said as bad as it is to have “Jumah at the DNC,” it is dramatically worse than the hosting of radical Islamic supremacists and jihad groups there. While all the radicals are scheduled to be everywhere, praying, speaking, and doing their Sharia moments, the Catholics and Christian folks apparently aren’t welcome. Cardinal Dolan, the President of the Conference of Catholic Bishops, was denied his request to say a simple blessing prayer at the national convention.

Can you say “Catholic and Christian insult” AGAIN?

Elsewhere in the news this week, we were reminded that our Commander-in-Chief and top brass are essentially neutering and dismantling our military in Afghanistan. They are being told to completely submit to Sharia. Frank Gaffney, Jr., has a great article on this, referencing the increase in “green-on-blue” attacks from Muslim natives on our troops. We are told these attacks are linked to the anger that locals feel regarding our soldiers apparently breaching some form of Sharia.

Recently Marine General John Allen attributed the “green-on-blue” attacks to summer heat, fast pace of missions, and hunger due to the Ramadan fast. What is the answer??? Our soldiers are told to have closer relationships with the locals and observe Sharia law. That will make them more secure and solve the problem…

No more working on the wrong day, saying the wrong thing, defending the wrong person, supporting a human right and perhaps a woman…on and on. Anyway, shut up, military, submit to Shariah, ignore your own moral common sense and sense of right and wrong. Above all, get good and close to the locals so they can continue to attack and kill you with ease. Have we lost our entire mind!!!???

There is no reason at all in my view to keep our troops anywhere in Afghanistan or Iraq if leadership from Obama on down is planning to insert Sharia submission and danger into our U.S. military and her operations. We might as well shoot our troops in the head. Making our troops EVER submit to the unethical, evil, and dangerous Sharia law is absurd and wrong on every level.

Sharia law and its use anywhere in America with any court, our military, and in all 57 Muslim-controlled countries IS the problem. It is couched as the Islamic legal system, reflecting the heart and soul of Muhammad and the Koran. It certainly does reflect the heart and soul of Muhammad and the Koran. It preaches, promotes, and facilitates the whipping, stoning, beating, raping, and abusing of Muslim wives, crucifixion of gays, dismembering of limbs, and overwhelming controls and oppression.

The belief of most Islamic leadership, Imams/Clerics, Sharia law, and the heart of the Caliphate is total takeover. Aggressive control and infiltration of Islam have been in the works since the 1920’s with Muslim Brotherhood. They have taught and pushed for Jihad and a world controlled by Islam.

Their takeover plan was matched by the radical and funded Whahabbi sect of Saudi Arabia. You know…the Saudis we have always kissed up to and looked the other way with because of our use of their oil??? Then, there was the longstanding relationship of the Bush family with the Saudi royals.

The Saudis have funded Islamic centers, mosques, schools, and colleges all over America and the world. The goal is simple and clear. Infiltrate and push Islam everywhere…cry rights issues and Islamaphobia, while getting Muslims elected to office to change laws from the top down. Only then can their beloved Sharia law supercede our Constitution. They are right on track.

Back to our DNC convention, denial of a Catholic cardinal for a prayer, 20,000 Muslims showing up for 2 hours of prayer, and radical Muslim leadership everywhere.

Obama has bowed down to Saudi royalty, said we were the largest Muslim nation on earth, denied we were a Christian nation, given nearly a billion to Hamas, spat on Israel repeatedly, and gone to war with the Catholic Church. What is your conclusion, folks?

It is vividly clear to me. President Obama is nothing but an Islamic pawn, backed by the International New World Order crowd to create Muslim-controls over America. Obama is the president of the Islamic Caliphate, not the United States of America.

We MUST get Obama out of office in November and begin undoing all the damage here and abroad. Sharia should be made completely illegal in America at every level. We must also stop Muslims from being allowed into any sensitive governmental leadership position and give our military back their common sense, sovereignty, and culture. Others can submit to our troops in ways we don’t submit to them!

Obama Trashes GOP Convention, and “No Ideas” Romney

Comments Off on Obama Trashes GOP Convention, and “No Ideas” Romney

Obviously, Mr. Oblameya should have paid more attention to the GOP convention. I will endeavor to answer his questions, because I did. This comes from the National Journal:

CAMPAIGN 2012

Obama: GOP Convention Was from Era of Black-and-White TV

The president said the GOP event showcased bad deas from the last century.

By National Journal Staff
Updated: September 1, 2012

 

President Obama didn’t think much of the Republican National Convention.

He told some 10,000 people Saturday at a rally in Urbandale, Iowa, that the agenda set out by nominee Mitt Romney and other speakers in Tampa was “better suited for the last century” more often than not.

“It was a rerun. We’d seen it before. You might as well have watched it on a black-and-white TV,” Obama said, clearly enjoying himself. “If you didn’t DVR it, let me recap it for you. Everything is bad, it’s Obama’s fault, and Gov. Romney is the only one who knows the secret to creating jobs and growing the economy.”

Didn’t DVR it, don’t need a biased recap. Who among us, unless you’re a liberal thinks things are great? Who among you (sans liberal bias) is better off than you were 4 years ago? Well, aside from blaming GW Bush, who is in the drivers seat? Not that Romney is the only one, but he’s much better equipped from seeing his background records that seeing yours…oh, I forgot, your records are sealed. And the only thing growing from the Oblameya administration…is the deficit.

He added, “There was a lot of talk about hard truths and bold choices, but nobody ever actually bothered to tell you what they were.”

Here’s the plan, as laid out by Mitt Romney in his acceptance speech:

And unlike the President, I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. It has 5 steps.

First, by 2020, North America will be energy independent by taking full advantage of our oil and coal and gas and nuclear and renewables.

Second, we will give our fellow citizens the skills they need for the jobs of today and the careers of tomorrow. When it comes to the school your child will attend, every parent should have a choice, and every child should have a chance.

Third, we will make trade work for America by forging new trade agreements. And when nations cheat in trade, there will be unmistakable consequences.

Fourth, to assure every entrepreneur and every job creator that their investments in America will not vanish as have those in Greece, we will cut the deficit and put America on track to a balanced budget.

And fifth, we will champion SMALL businesses, America’s engine of job growth. That means reducing taxes on business, not raising them. It means simplifying and modernizing the regulations that hurt small business the most. And it means that we must rein in the skyrocketing cost of healthcare by repealing and replacing Obamacare.

He said Romney “did not offer a single new idea, just retreads of the same old policies that have been sticking it to the middle class for years.” He told the audience, “you’ve lived through it and you can’t afford to repeat it.”

In one phrase, he summed up how he’s going to stop that…

And let me make this very clear – unlike President Obama, I will not raise taxes on the middle class.

As president, I will protect the sanctity of life. I will honor the institution of marriage. And I will guarantee America’s first liberty: the freedom of religion.

President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. MY promise…is to help you and your family.

The crowd booed when Obama opened his speech with a mention of the GOP convention. “Don’t boo,” he told them. “Vote.”

AMEN!

Obama’s second-term agenda will prove devastating to U.S.

By Aaron Klein

FoxNews.com

  • ObamaBiden.jpg

    Feb. 21, 2012: President Barack Obama, accompanied by Vice President Joe Biden, speaks in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House complex in Washington. (AP)

Americans may think they know what President Obama would do if he wins four more years. But, in reality, they have no idea just how radical and far-reaching his agenda would be.

Obama himself has been clear about using another term to “reform” our financial sector and ensure the implementation of ObamaCare. The president also has said he would attempt progressive-style immigration reform, with the presumption of amnesty for illegal aliens.

 

‘Will we, the American people, allow ourselves to be fooled again?’

 

Many figure Obama would continue his relentless expansion of federal government power; increasing even further his crushing, multitrillion-dollar intergenerational debt; and pursue a weak foreign policy coupled with the evisceration of America’s military.

These generalized ambitions, however, do not scratch the surface of the specific, transformative assault that is planned upon our country.

Months of painstaking research into thousands of documents have enabled Brenda J. Elliott and me to expose the detailed template for Obama’s next four years — the one actually created by Obama’s own top advisers, strategists and associated progressive groups.

This second-term blueprint is laid bare in our upcoming book, “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed.” 

We found that, just as in 2008, when Obama concealed his true presidential plans behind bland rhetoric of ending partisan differences and cutting the federal deficit, his 2012 re-election theme of creating jobs conceals far more than it reveals about his true agenda for a second term.

 

Here are some of the second-term plans we uncovered:

• The re-creation of a 21st-century version of FDR’s Works Progress Administration program within the Department of Labor that would oversee a massive new bureaucracy and millions of new federal jobs;

• An additional government-funded jobs program that provides “good jobs” capable of supporting a family with a “decent standard of living.”

• A new government mandate to force businesses to provide twelve weeks of paid benefits to employees who need time off to care for a new child, a sick family member, or their own illness. Plus, a higher, required minimum wage that would raise the floor for all employees.

•       An expansive, de facto amnesty program for illegal aliens via both executive order and interagency directives linked with a reduction in the capabilities of the U.S. Border Patrol.

•     Plans to bring in untold numbers of new immigrants with the removal of caps on H-1B visas and green cards.

•     Government-funded, neighborhood-based programs to better integrate the newly amnestied immigrants into society, including education centers and health care centers. A “federal solution” to ensure that the amnestied immigrants are treated “equitably” across the United States.

•     A National Infrastructure Bank that would evaluate and finance infrastructure projects of substantial regional and national importance” and would finance “transportation infrastructure, housing, energy, telecommunications, drinking water, wastewater, and other infrastructures.”

•     The wresting of control of the military budget from Congress by placing an ”independent panel” in charge of military spending while slashing  the defense budget in shocking ways.

•      Spreading the vastly reduced resources of the U.S. Armed Forces even thinner by using them to combat “global warming,” fight global  poverty, remedy “injustice,” bolster the United Nations and step up use of  “peacekeeping” deployments;

•     A new “green” stimulus program and the founding of a federal “green” bank or “Energy Independence Trust,” which would borrow from the federal treasury to provide low-cost financing to private-sector investments in “clean energy. “

•  A “green Manufacturing” revolving loan fund to create 680,000 manufacturing jobs and 1,972,000 additional jobs over five years

•     Detailed plans to enact single-payer health care legislation controlled by the federal government.

 

How did we obtain this expansive blueprint? By investigating the policy papers and legislative proposals of the same progressive shadow groups that crafted Obama’s first term.

Obama’s first-term strategy did not materialize out of thin air. The president’s signature policies, including the “stimulus,” defense initiatives and even ObamaCare, were crafted over years by key progressive think tanks and activists, usually first promoted in extensive research and policy papers. Some first-term plans were even recycled and modified from older legislative attempts that had previously been pushed by progressive Democrats.

Many of these same progressive groups and activists have been hard at work planning Obama’s second-term strategy: jobs, wages, health care, immigration, defense, even electoral reform.

One joke going around the capital after the rare Washington earthquake of August 2011 was that Obama had proclaimed it: “Bush’s fault.” Yet it was Bush who must be credited with dusting off an old American saw that well applies to his White House successor: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

Will we, the American people, allow ourselves to be fooled again?

Obama Unmasked On A Facebook Post

2 Comments

I get excited a lot and post political stuff on Facebook. One of the fun things is that I have liberal friends there who argue with me, and it’s fine, as long as they use facts. One of my liberal friends and I have a Southern Gentleman’s bet to wear a flattering icon of the newly elected president from November through January. I’m hoping it’s him. Not necessarily because it’s between two candidates for President, but because it’s Barack Obama. On another liberal post, another friend posted Obama’s accomplishments…and it was one of those liberal made up posters that you see and re-post for effect. Problem was, it’s a lie. When we conservatives answered it, she said she could not answer Republican propaganda. Wrong…I’m not Republican, and another of my friends voted for Obama and he wrote one of the most damning answers on Obama I have ever seen. I asked him if I could re-post it, and he gave me his permission. I will only say, thank you Rob for allowing me to do that. I will not give his full name so that people will attack him…you can save the attacks for me. But I am going to post it for your review. It’s facts that he has been accumulating since Obama was elected in it’s full glory. In this election cycle of accusations of killing people, not paying a correct amount of taxes, condemning someone for having off shore bank accounts when your own people do and more, this is stuff you need to read and consider in November. Once again, thanks to Rob for some great foresight in writing this down…as they say, it don’t get better than this:

He has done more than any other President before him. He has an impressive list of accomplishments:

First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.

First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.

First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States

First President to violate the War Powers Act. .

First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico .

First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.

First President to spend a trillion dollars on ‘shovel-ready’ jobs when there was no such thing as ‘shovel-ready’ jobs.

First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.

First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.

First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S, including those with criminal convictions.

First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.

First President to tell a CEO of a major corporation (GM) to resign.

First President to terminate America ‘s ability to put a man in space.

First President to cancel the National Day of Prayer and to say that America is no longer a Christian nation.

First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.

First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.

First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke-out on the reasons for their rate increases.

First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state it is allowed to locate a factory.

First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN).

First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.

First President to actively try to bankrupt an American industry (coal).

First President to fire an inspector general of Ameri-Corps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.

First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.

First President to surround himself with radical left wing anarchists.

First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office, 102 to date.

First President to hide his medical, educational and travel records.

First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.

First President to go on multiple global “apology tours” and concurrent “insult our friends” tours.

First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayer.

First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.

First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.

First President to repeat the Holy Quran & tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.

First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences”.

Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.

First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona). Hello Jan Brewer. It really depends on your personal feelings on on what you want accomplished. 

Anything you feel I posted above and you disagree let me know your opinion. I welcome your input on this thread without having to list biased links to liberal websites as a complete Status update making headlines. Defend in your own words and lets not bore others with headlines which they could care less to read. Do it here or wherever. The above is just a list I’ve been compiling on my own. No link and just a sample of what I’ve been keeping track of. This is first election I’ve ever became outspoken. I’m generally not a public spokesperson when it comes to politics, however what this President has done over the past 3.7 years has me baffled in the directions he is taking the country. People need to wake up and get off the I’m a die hard democrat or republican vote and really look at what is going on before it is too late. Hopefully some individuals can get off their I’m going to support the party no matter what use some common sense. We need somebody that can fix this mess rather than promise to give somebody something when they have no means to give it away!

(Liberal Answer) I cannot argue with right wing extremists propaganda.

I’m not right wing nor left wing. Completely independent. Convince me to vote for Obama with something truthful with substance. I gave Obama a chance last election. Time for another change. Surely we can get it right this time before it is too late

 

Columbia University the Downfall of Obama?

OBAMA’S COLLEGE CLASSMATE: ‘THE OBAMA SCANDAL IS AT COLUMBIA’

Wayne Allyn Root is a former Libertarian vice presidential nominee. He now serves as Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee. 
wayne@rootforamerica.com

I am President Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. I am also one of the most accurate Las Vegas oddsmakers and prognosticators. Accurate enough that I was awarded my own star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. And I smell something rotten in Denmark. Obama has a big skeleton in his closet. It’s his college records. Call it “gut instinct” but my gut is almost always right. Obama has a secret hidden at Columbia- and it’s a bad one that threatens to bring down his presidency. Gut instinct is how I’ve made my living for 29 years since graduating Columbia.

Obama and his infamous strategist David Axelrod understand how to play political hardball, the best its ever been played. Team Obama has decided to distract America’s voters by condemning Mitt Romney for not releasing enough years of his tax returns. It’s the perfect cover. Obama knows the best defense is a bold offense. Just keep attacking Mitt and blaming him for secrecy and evasion, while accusing him of having a scandal that doesn’t exist. Then ask followers like Senator Harry Reid to chase the lead. The U.S. Senate Majority Leader appears to now be making up stories out of thin air, about tax returns he knows nothing about. It’s a cynical, brilliant and vicious strategy. Make Romney defend, so he can’t attack the real Obama scandal.

This is classic Axelrod. Obama has won several elections in his career by slandering his opponents and leaking sealed documents. Not only do these insinuations and leaks ruin the credibility and reputation of Obama’s opponents, they keep them on the defensive and off Obama’s trail of sealed documents.

 

By attacking Romney’s tax records, Obama’s socialist cabal creates a problem that doesn’t exist. Is the U.S. Senate Majority Leader making up stories out of thin air? You decide. But the reason for this baseless attack is clear- make Romney defend, so not only is he “off message” but it helps the media ignore the real Obama scandal.

My answer for Romney? Call Obama’s bluff.

Romney should call a press conference and issue a challenge in front of the nation. He should agree to release more of his tax returns, only if Obama unseals his college records. Simple and straight-forward. Mitt should ask “What could possibly be so embarrassing in your college records from 29 years ago, that you are afraid to let America’s voters see it? If it’s THAT bad, maybe it’s something the voters ought to see.” Suddenly the tables are turned. Now Obama is on the defensive.

My bet is that Obama will never unseal his records because they contain information that could destroy his chances for re-election. Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again.

Why are the college records, of a 51-year-old President of the United States, so important to keep secret? I think I know the answer.

If anyone should have questions about Obama’s record at Columbia University, it’s me. We both graduated (according to Obama) Columbia University, Class of ’83. We were both (according to Obama) Pre-Law and Political Science majors. And I thought I knew most everyone at Columbia. I certainly thought I’d heard of all of my fellow Political Science majors. But not Obama (or as he was known then- Barry Soetoro). I never met him. Never saw him. Never even heard of him. And none of the classmates that I knew at Columbia has ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.

But don’t take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News randomly called 400 of our Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama.

Now all of this mystery could be easily and instantly dismissed if Obama released his Columbia transcripts to the media. But even after serving as President for 3 1/2 years he refuses to unseal his college records. Shouldn’t the media be as relentless in pursuit of Obama’s records as Romney’s? Shouldn’t they be digging into Obama’s past–beyond what he has written about himself–with the same boundless enthusiasm as Mitt’s?

The first question I’d ask is, if you had great grades, why would you seal your records? So let’s assume Obama got poor grades. Why not release the records? He’s President of the free world, for gosh sakes. He’s commander-in-chief of the U.S. military. Who’d care about some poor grades from three decades ago, right? So then what’s the problem? Doesn’t that make the media suspicious? Something doesn’t add up.

Secondly, if he had poor grades at Occidental, how did he get admitted to an Ivy League university in the first place? And if his grades at Columbia were awful, how’d he ever get into Harvard Law School? So again those grades must have been great, right? So why spend millions to keep them sealed?

Third, how did Obama pay for all these fancy schools without coming from a wealthy background? If he had student loans or scholarships, would he not have to maintain good grades?

I can only think of one answer that would explain this mystery.

Here’s my gut belief: Obama got a leg up by being admitted to both Occidental and Columbia as a foreign exchange student. He was raised as a young boy in Indonesia. But did his mother ever change him back to a U.S. citizen? When he returned to live with his grandparents in Hawaii or as he neared college-age preparing to apply to schools, did he ever change his citizenship back? I’m betting not.

If you could unseal Obama’s Columbia University records I believe you’d find that:

A)   He rarely ever attended class.

B)   His grades were not those typical of what we understand it takes to get into Harvard Law School.

C)   He attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.

D)   He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships given to a poor foreign students like this kid Barry Soetoro from Indonesia.

If you think I’m “fishing” then prove me wrong. Open up your records Mr. President. What are you afraid of?

If it’s okay for U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to go on a fishing expedition about Romney’s taxes (even though he knows absolutely nothing about them nor will release his own), then I think I can do the same thing. But as Obama’s Columbia Class of ’83 classmate, at least I have more standing to make educated guesses.

It’s time for Mitt to go on the attack and call Obama’s bluff.

Could This Be the Forewarn to Civil Unrest and Martial Law?

Are you ready for a rocky election? Hope so, DHS is…

 

DHS gears up for civil unrest prior to presidential elections

 
Reuters / Frank Polich

Reuters / Frank Polich

The Department of Homeland Security has ordered masses of riot gear equipment to prepare for potential significant domestic riots at the Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention and next year’s presidential inauguration.

The DHS submitted a rushed solicitation to the Federal Business Opportunities site on Wednesday, which is a portal for Federal government procurement requisitions over $25,000. The request gave the potential suppliers only one day to submit their proposals and a 15-day delivery requirement to Alexandria, Virginia.

As the brief explains, “the objective of this effort is to procure riot gear to prepare for the 2012 Democratic and Republican National Conventions, the 2013 Presidential Inauguration and other future similar activities.”

The total amount ordered is about 150 sets of riot helmets, thigh and groin protectors, hard-shell shin guards and other riot gear.

Specifically, DHS is looking to obtain:

– “147 riot helmets” with “adjustable tactical face shield with liquid seal”

 “147 sets of upper body and shoulder protection”

– “152 sets of thigh and groin protection”

– “147 hard-shell shin guards” with “substantial protection from flying debris, non-ballistic weapons, and blows to the leg” and “optimized protective design for severe riot control or tactical situations.”

– “156 forearm protectors”

– “147 pairs of tactical gloves”

The riot gear will be worn by Federal Protective Service agents who are tasked with protecting property, grounds and buildings owned by the federal government.

The urgency of the order can be explained by the fact that there is a growing anticipation that many demonstrators will travel to the Republican National Convention (RNC), scheduled for August 27-30 in Tampa Bay, Florida, and Democratic National Convention (DNC), planned for September 3-6 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The RNC itself, for example, will have free speech zones, which will serve as containment quarters for the protesters by not allowing them to leave the designated areas and cause trouble.

Another recent DHS move to gear up was back in March of this year, when it gave the defense contractor ATK a deal to provide the DHS with 450 million .40 caliber hollow-point ammunition over a five year period.

On top of that, the DHS has recently purchased a number of bullet-proof checkpoint booths and hired hundreds of new security guards to protect government buildings.
