Palin: Washington buying bullets for us ('We're going to default eventually and that's why feds....)
WND ^ | February 27, 2013 | Garth Kant

Posted on 02/27/2013 10:30:35 PM PST by Perseverando

Imagine the worst-case scenario if the sequester goes through. The market nosedives. The economy implodes. Empty shelves. Riots. The feds hit the streets in force to restore order in a “national emergency.”

Sounds like something in a Third World country or Greece. It could never happen here, right? Think again, says Sarah Palin.

The former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential nominee believes the federal government is “stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest.”

Palin says the feds are afraid of what might happen if the sequester goes into effect.

She writes on her Facebook page: “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 sequester will trigger $85 billion in immediate cuts to federal funding and $1.2 over 10 years unless lawmakers reach a deal by Friday.

The prospect of civil unrest puts a chilling spin on an off-teleprompter remark then-candidate Barack Obama made in a Colorado campaign speech in July, 2008.

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded,” said candidate Obama.

Palin’s warning echoes a WND report Feb. 17 citing radio host Mark Levin’s point that federal non-military agencies have purchased enough ammunition recently not only to shoot every American five times but also engage in a prolonged, domestic war.

Why do federal agencies need all that ammunition?

This article starts on the wrong presumption. Sequester is the reason market is relentlessly hitting new highs this month. The best thing that can happen to USA is cutting spending. Since politicians are too scared to cut spending, automatic cuts through sequester is far better than no cuts.

Maybe, or maybe the effects of a sequester will be enough to instill a little reality into the markets. It may be the pin that pops the inflated bubble of an economy that we have and brings us crashing back down to “Realville.” This economy is no longer operating based on real economics, but few want to admit it.

The FedMob may have enough ammo to shoot every American six
times but they're a few tens of millions short on personnel.

Trillion dollar deficits and they are arguing and pretending to panic over change that fell in behind the sofa.

This isn’t about the budget. This is a government that accepts no limit, not even a pretense of a limit on their authority. They will do what they will and since they’ve learned how to print the money digitally, they don’t even have to pay for ink.

It does seem interesting that they feds responded when it came from Palin.

What this country needs is an honoest politican who’s clean as a whistle and will stand up and call them on it. Put out a call to come to Arms. Show the strenth on just this one issue. The only issue to be the 2nd amendment. Lots of liberal hunters would show up and will be given the opportunity to hear the truth.

If they could somehow magically transport the whole People’s Liberation Army here, they’d still be outnumbered 200 to 1 by just the hunters.

If transforming American society was your ultimate goal, and you felt that redistribution of wealth was just and necessary, the easiest way to do that would be by devaluing the currency.

You saved $300,000 while some other guy didn’t? Doesn’t matter much when there’s been a 500:1 devaluation of the currency. If you want to reset the clock you devalue the currency.

Further, don’t think that if you own your home or property that you’re somehow protected from redistribution of those assets. When currency devaluation is combined with government controlled property taxes, your property can become theirs because you can’t pay your property taxes.

Of course, if that type of scenario plays out there will be dissent.

There is a difference between sequester and total collapse of the monetary system.

Sarah, why didn’t you run? You were the only one who could have raised the funds to beat Romney. Now look what we’re left with.

Yes good point , Sarah Palin would have beat Romney and the communist/democrat Obama. I am SURE of this.

Sarah Palin is right in this article also. Sarah Palin for president of U.S. in 2016

I have made this point that we cannot run another white male against the democrats/communists. The news media wants their democrat to run against another white male. The news media chose Romney for this reason (knocking out Palin, bacman, Cain etc). The news media will try to above all else choose a white male to be the Republican nominee( Christie or Jeb Bush is the liberal news media's fav). So I made the case for Sarah Palin . She would have obliterated the Obama monster even overcoming the voter fraud. The news media wants to portray the GOP as being only of white males (racist , women hating white males)

Sarah Palin for president of U.S. in 2016

Sarah is right , the federal government agencies are stock piling so many bullets to use on us Americans. That is no function of stupid gov agencies that need to be abolished anyway as all they do as in the EPA is destroy oil production,destroy our businesses and the economy.

Bring it on you socialist monsters. We in Louisiana are ready for cw2.

Ignorance can be cured by learning...Stupidity is terminal.

The stupid people of America far outweigh the ignorant ones and they all believe every word that comes from the Ministry of Propaganda. Furthermore, they are not individuals, they are fish that swim in schools and turn this way and that way as the leader changes course.....without question or rational thinking.

There’s a lot more of them out there than us.

Which means “We the People” will end up taking all THEIR bullets when the smoke clears .

Americans have enough ammo to shoot every federal employee 26,496 times.

The question is, once they cross a line, how long will their ammunition remain in their possession?

Despite the endless abuse from the media, or perhaps because of this abuse, I think that, deep down, there is wide respect for her, even among liberals and the wishy-washy.

It will take a charismatic candidate to beat the Dum nominee. She has my support. I don't see anyone better.

Now is the time to prepare to blunt the offensive from the get-go. First, identify and locate those who will GIVE THE ORDERS to confiscate your weapons. Like the leftist newsrag did with lawful gun owners, post their names, addresses, workplaces, how they travel, how best to catch them alone and personal data. When the confiscations begin they are the primary targets. Cut off the head and the snake will die.

I am not at all worried about effects of sequester. I am deathly afraid of what the $85 Billion Federal Reserve is printing every month. Printing money has failed every time tried, starting from the Romans, Germany, Argentina, etc. At this rate we are not far from modern day Greece. Conditions in Greece currently are horrible. Suicides, starvation, homelessness, joblessness abound.

When one has indigestion, more food is not the answer.

Regardless of how the MSM has portrayed her, Sarah is quite intelligent and knew she could not win in the primaries with so many other conservatives running against ONE moderate.

That’s right. We are the sovereigns so we will do the confiscating. :-)

“dissent”... you made me smile.

Yep, people would “mildly disagree” with the government confiscating houses and land.

When the EBT riots start, and the mobs start looting the suburbs, and the suburbanites start defending their property and lives with firearms...

I think everyone knows which way the FedLEO bullets will be flying.
