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 were running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then were done. Put a fork in us. Were finished. Were going to default eventually and thats 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 Palins 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....

Oh, geeze not this sh*t again.
We are living in interesting times....sigh.
May God continue to Bless this remarkable patriot, a champion of American Exceptionalism.
No great insight on Palin’s part. She is just stating the obvious.
Sarah is wrong.
Proof or link?
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.
I don't disagree with her or the original stories but it doesn't take a political genius to figure this stuff out.
I understand your anger but may I kindly and as a Christian ask you to not take the Name of Almighty God in vain? Thanks.
So who in Homeland is going to fire on civilians Sarah? Who in our government are you calling potential Nazis ? The National Guard ? Local law enforcement? The capital police? The Marines ? Or secret black helicopters with Men in Black willing to act as Obamas pratoreon guard?
Some of us here said that a month ago, didn’t make headlines then.
Has it occurred in the US previously, yes or no?
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.
You know how rare and refreshing it is to find a politician who states the obvious?
Palin is gold dust.
No, she is solid gold, a real nugget.
How awesome would it be if our President cared about OUR Liberty as much as this lady. Mmm?
You are a fed.
You would fire on us.
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.
Why isn't any other so called Republicans speaking out about this? Why does she always have to take the lead?
Good thing she is not with FauxNews anymore. They would not have let her say this
No secret that fed agencies are stockpiling bullets. You have to be real govt brainwashed or Obama Lover to believe otherwise
“So who in Homeland is going to fire on civilians Sarah?”
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.
Sounds like Katrina and Sandy to me!
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.
I would suggest you read about the race riots of the 1960’s. Also check out the whole history of the concentration camps for U.S. citizens of Japaness ancestry during WWII.
So just where do we go to rob these “stockpiles” of ammunition?
“No great insight on Palins part. She is just stating the obvious.”
It has become a bold move in our country to state the obvious, just ask Bob Woodward.
You made your point, quite well in fact, but your resorting to name calling demeaned you and your message. Leave the name calling to the Leftests.
Palin is not the only one who thinks the gubmint is stock piling ammo to be used against the American people.
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.
So are the Civilians. And there are more of us.
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.
Hollow points are the only type of pistol rounds used by DHS for practice.
Well everywhere I’m hearing how ammo is getting increasingly difficult to find so it could be to partially deplete the ammo supply available as well.
All of the above.
Pretty much what happened during the Detroit riots.
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'll just say this. We were hesitant NOT.
