Bring on the Presidential Elections... and the Riot Gear?


The Department of Homeland Security recently put in a new order for riot gear. Are they anticipating some new foreign attack? Perhaps they are looking at trouble along the border? No. They are gearing up for the presidential elections and conventions.

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.

    Yes when obummer is sent packing there will be a certain group of his supporters that may be a little upset. Like when they burned the west and south sides of Chicago after MLK was assassinated. The city was up for grabs. I was only 15 but I do remember!

    It will be like when the Bulls won the championship. Breaking store windows, looting them and turning over police cars and burning them. These people cannot handle a loss but they sure think they have the right to take it out on the rest of people! Its that prime evil mind set!

    I have thought for some time that if Obama loses there will be huge riots. I read the whole article. Does anyone else find it peculiar that the orders are for uneven quantities like 147, 152, etc.???? If it was a general buy you’d think the quantities would read like 150, 200, etc.???

    I expect riots before the election, if not major terrorism.

      Hmmm…now that would give Obama cause to declare Martial Law. Are we actually sure there is going to be an election? I don’t see Obama as someone who will give up his kinghood easily and given his past record, and lack of respect for the constitution I believe he would easily resort to extreme measures to keep it.

    Given the article originates from the clown media of RT, why would I take it seriously?

    Did they just realize that there are two conventions coming up and that they may need some gear for the folks? They will probably need more then this just to deal with all of the idiots and anarchists who are showing up in Tampa. Someone should be axed if they waited so long that they have to go through a rush process to procure necessary gear for something that was planned for years.

    This is not the only purchase of “riot gear” and other arsenal items which have recently been purchase by DHS and BATF. Has anyone noticed that these purchases were timed to coincide with when the UN Aritcle about gun control was set to be signed and approved? Wake up people and realize that if you ever have had any thoughts about personal self defense weapons and ammunition you would be well advised to start the process now and not wait. Osama wants to take away our guns for a reason and he wants his “police force” to be able to handle potential rebellion by the true patriotic citizens of the USA when he finally crosses the point of no return and assumes formal dictatorship of our country, probably on the pretext of some sort of “emergency” as described above. Pres. George Bush used 9/11 to invoke the Patriot Act as a means to protect true citizens from further terrorist attacks; Osama will create some sort of “emergency” ala “Wag the Dog” and attempt to take over complete power. Beware!

    Lets not forget the black panthers at the voting booths last time. Oh by the way, I never did hear Obama tell his friends that we don’t put bounties on the heads of Americans in this country! Guess he forgot to mention that to his black panther friends!

      Let’s also not forget that the incidence of black ‘flashgang’ attacks in public venues upon unsuspecting white and hispanic victims has been growing for months.
      The media ignores the attacks, or reports them as the work of ‘teenagers’ while carefully hiding the testimony and videos that clearly show it’s a ‘black thing’.

      If Obama supporters DO riot at a convention or inauguration venue, you can expect the ‘flashgangs’ to spontaneously appear, too.

    O BAM BAM Will go to any lengths to keep his seat, and continue his evil agenda upon our Country. Yes, I believe most definitely that Martial Law is in the wings. If there is any question that he might possibly loose the election, there are still a few months for him to change the direction enough to near guarantee his remaining in power
    This is one of those nightmares that we have, that something terrible is done, and no matter how much we want to change it, there is just no way to do so.
    He has granted himself, and the blind who follow him, have given him Power, over and above what the leader of our Country should possess.
    I believe putting the generic President in office was the very worst possible step taken in the History of America, and I fear that he is in there, and he is one we cannot do a mulligan with.

    America will likely have to live with this mistake for the rest of her history as a Nation.
    His re-election, or remaining in power, would be the legacy of our once great Country, and the land of the free, lost forever. A rotten apple at the bottom of the barrel, which effects all those which surround him with his destiny. I Pray that we are blessed with his removal from the office he took on un-kept promises of hope and change. We now hope for change.

    I am reminded of several passages from Proverbs regarding our president:

    Proverbs 29:16 NLT “When the wicked are in authority, sin increases. But the godly will live to see the tyrant’s downfall.” (Lets hope!)

    Proverbs 29:12 NLT “If a ruler honors liars, all his advisers will be wicked.” Is there an honest man in his cabinet?

    Proverbs 29:2 NLT “When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan.”
    Been doing a lot of groaning lately!

    Proverbs 28:15 NLT “A wicked ruler is as dangerous to the poor as a lion or bear attacking them.” A “Chicago bear” perhaps?

    Proverbs 18:3 NLT “When the wicked arrive, contempt, shame, and disgrace are sure to follow.” Yup!
