Sarah Palin Says Feds Are Stockpiling Bullets For Civil Unrest
Market Daily News ^ | February 28, 2013 | Paul Joseph Watson

Posted on 02/28/2013 11:44:09 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin has warned that the federal government is “stockpiling bullets” in preparation for “civil unrest,” adding that America is “finished” if it cannot deal with its debt problem.

Writing on her official Facebook page, Palin remarked, “If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished. We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”

The post achieved nearly 12,000 ‘shares,’ attracting nearly 60,000 ‘likes’ and over 4500 comments.

The Department of Homeland Security has committed to purchasing around 2 billion bullets over the course of the last year, in addition to buying 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles last September (the agency referred to them as “personal defense weapons”).

Although the mainstream media has played down the purchases as the feds merely saving money by buying in bulk, the ammo buys have contributed to shortages across the country.

However, concerns were further stoked last week when Law Enforcement Targets Inc, a DHS contractor that supplies shooting targets to the agency along with thousands of police departments, was forced to apologize for producing “non-traditional threat” targets which featured images of pregnant women, children and elderly gun owners in residential settings.

Politico published an article following Palin’s Facebook post bizarrely claiming that her concerns about the federal government purchasing ammo in large quantities had been debunked despite admitting that “government agencies are, in fact, purchasing large amounts of ammunition.” This tactic of admitting that the government is purchasing a huge number of bullets while simultaneously portraying anyone concerned about the fact as erroneous and paranoid has been adopted by other mainstream media outlets....

She's right...as always. Sarah Palin is a savvy observer of what's transpiring under the corrupt Obama regime and we best heed her warnings, taking prudent, proactive measures for the coming dire days ahead.

May God continue to Bless this remarkable patriot, a champion of American Exceptionalism.

Sarah is wrong.

How so?

I think she's extremely well informed and is privy to data that is suppressed by the lamestream media. Her love of America is unquestioned and I believe, much like Paul Revere, she's letting "We the People" know about the looming crisis. Obama and his evil sycophants will use all available resources to turn our land into a socialist state, at best, and a Muslim-centered theocracy at worst. I, for one, will not be dismissing the clear warnings now being issued by Mrs. Palin.

This information was in print well before Palin said anything. It was old news by then.

I don't disagree with her or the original stories but it doesn't take a political genius to figure this stuff out.

Quoting Governor Palin We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”

Have you ever lived through civil unrest in America, seen many thousands of paratroopers and marines at the ready guarding choke points and bridges, been sent to a detainment center without food or beds, held with many thousands and thousands of other people?

Obama is driving out the good men from the ranks of the military and replacing them with sodomites and Muslims. It's quite plausible -- in fact inevitable -- that firing on civilians will occur. As was the case in Germany, Hitler molded the Wehrmacht to achieve his diabolical ends. In his crafty way, Obama (the Hitler of our times, a fascist in every way) is transforming our once proud and patriotic military and law enforcement agencies into one that can and will suppress real Americans. Sarah Palin is sounding the alarm.

Are you saying that such a scenario is impossible?

So who in Homeland is going to fire on civilians Sarah?
They have proved their loyalty to their union, their jobs, to butch Janet.
Who in our government are you calling potential Nazis?
All union employees.
The National Guard?
No, they are patriots.
Local law enforcement?
There will be a divide in police forces across the country. Some will be union thugs, and others will be patriotic Americans.
The capital police?
Without a doubt.
The Marines?
All but the top brass will comport themselves as the patriots they are.
Or secret black helicopters with Men in Black willing to act as Obamas pratoreon guard?
Drones, and a new generation of mercenaries.

It boggles that you think this administration benign.

This has been reported before. However, this account conveniently leaves out the type of bullets purchased (i.e., hollow point) which are rarely used for target practice due to the cost. My understanding was the government was trying to save money.

I wish someone would publish a list of the agencies that purchased the ammunition; Fish and Wildlife, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Education, Department of Transportation, etc.

How many employees of those agencies are authorized to carry and use a weapon as part of thier legal job description. Then how much ammunition per authorized user do these puchases represent?

Not to put too fine a point on it, and by no means to be disagreeable with your many valid points or you, but regarding the National Guard I think there may be a difference. A couple of things, I noticed Mao-Bama photo ops during the ‘12 campaign that featured people in uniform and started paying attention to the demographics. Nothing scientific and presuming they were in fact Guard or even military related people and not props, those people in his background were often largely africanhyphenamerican and/or women. Given that that demographic is very loyal to Hussein Mao-Bama, are they likely to hold fire on people who are obviously not his rabid supporters?

Another point, two Novembers ago I was in Charleston SC visiting my daughter. We went to the Veterans Day Parade. There were a lot of well disciplined formations from the armed forces in the parade but, there were also formations from local JROTC programs from high schools outside Charleston consisting largely of africanhyphenamericans and/or women. Not all, but most were strikingly undisciplined. They were not marching in formation as one would expect a well trained outfit to march rather swaying along chanting different chants by the “formation” sometimes even dancing past the Exchange Building where we were viewing. This reminded me of reports a few years back that were posted here about africanhyphenamerican leaders sponsoring JROTC formations of young ahyphenas who it was posited were being trained to be a sort of a militia to take on the white man.

I truly don’t mean to make this stuff racist, it is what I have observed. My only point being that I would not be so sure about the National Guard. I would also point out that there is another paramilitary organization, the blue shirts of the TSA who are only too happy to perform invasive searches on specific groups of people not including those of the islamic persuasion.

Hmmm, Ask Randy Weaver’s wife or his son. Opps, sorry they are dead.

Ask the children in Waco. You might wait a long time to get that response also.

IMHO there will always be someone willing to take that path.

You really are quite naive aren't you!

I would think that since the proof is they are in fact buying ammo in quantities that are beyond realistic, you would get an inkling of something not quite right.

But then again, you may be too ingrained in stupidity.

Nope: Haven’t seen it.

The Germans never saw Hitler coming either. The Holocaust? First time for the Jews. Stalin? Russia never had that before either.

Didn’t Obama just ask new Generals if they would fire on Civilians?

They didn’t buy all those bullets for target practice.
Just because something never happened before doesn’t mean it won’t happen.

Sarah is wrong.

Pray that you're right, but it seems a bit naive to have such trust in our government. They have a habit of running parallel agendas which also have a habit of turning for the worse as far as Freedom and the People are concerned. One might ask why the change in buying habits - going from annual to "long-term" to save money seems a bit ludicrous if one has any sense of how they really feel about efficiency and economy.

I have a young acquaintance who was in JROTC a couple of years ago at her high school, in a black and hispanic area. JROTC was a p.e. class. It was full of people who didn’t feel like doing regular p.e., not people who cared about military service. These would be the people who were marching in your parade on Veterans Day— people cruising along for their required p.e. credit.

How is Sarah wrong? DHS and several other government agencies have been buying up ammunition like never before. For example, why would the Social Security Administration need 174,000 rounds of .357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition? What’s with the NOAA ordering 46,000 rounds — also of hollow point ammunition? Since March, DHS has ordered 1.5 billion rounds, nearly half of which are hollow-point and/or wall-penetrating.

If you want to buy the line it’s all for “training,” go on ahead. I’m not so gullible.

That thought is occurring to a lot of real patriots lately. I’m guessing they are probably in lockdown in underground bunkers somewhere probably guarded by the military or HS. Hopefully they are manned by soldiers that are real patriots. With the right persuasion they might turn their heads and allow the stockpile to be “relocated” systematically over time...: )

You’re closer to the truth than you know. The point of the government buying all this ammo isn’t that they need it for some sort of uprising. It is that it is helping drive up the cost of ammo and making it less available for most of us.

I was in the Corps stationed on Pendleton when the LA Riots broke out in the 90s. We were ordered to get staged and be ready to crush that.

I'll just say this. We were hesitant NOT.
