Skip to comments.Rep. Bridenstine: Why Does USDA Need Submachine Guns?
Posted on 05/24/2014 11:55:46 AM PDT by kingattax
Following the Department of Agriculture's May 7 solicitation for submachine guns with 30-round magazine clips, Rep. Jim Bridenstine is demanding an explanation.
"The fear of my constituents is that the USDA is expanding outside of its intended mission," the Oklahoma Republican wrote the agency on Wednesday.
According to AmmoLand Shooting Sports News, the timing of the USDA request for the weaponry is suspect, coming "just one month after the [Cliven] Bundy embarrassment."
"It seems that the USDA, which oversees Americas vast tracks of forested land, may be preparing itself in the event some cowboys want their heads of cattle to munch government-owned grass," the website stated.
Bundy gained national attention in April during an armed standoff in Nevada over cattle grazing rights.

They need the machine guns for the same reason they need the freight cars and camps.
Part of Konig Barry’s fundamental tranformation of America - into a police state that would make Stalin and Hitler envious.
You build a ground swell better this way ... :-) ...
Jim Bridenstine is my representative and I was one of those who voted him into office. I’m glad to have him around!
Well ... it wouldn’t make Stalin and Hitler happy knowing that the citizens are just as well armed ... :-) ...
It’s currently a stalemate.
Doesn’t the Department of Education have a swat team too?
Thanks for helping him get elected. I’m moving into his district and can’t wait to get there.
> Its currently a stalemate.
At the current rate Barry is arming the alphabet agencies, and the rate they are buyin ammunition, they will have the people outgunned soon, if not outmanned.
The only question remaining is, “Will the U.S. military stand by and let them do it?”
Barry is very busy stuffing the military command with ideologues loyal to the cause, so it’s not likely the military will intervene. Once they get rid of the Christians and Oathkeepers, the military might even participate.
The Congress and Senate have done NOTHING AT ALL to hinder or stop the breathtaking militarization of regulatory agencies.
The people will certainly be outgunned, but they won’t be outmanned if they retain their resolve.
He asks a very good question. Something strange is going on with Comrade Obummer administration. Doe he plan on taking over the government in 2016 when is term is up?
Just look at the [lack of] enthusiasm of Ukrainian military when they are sent to kill their own people for political reasons. Desertions abound.
It will be worse in professional armed forces; older adults will not be as obedient to criminal orders of their superiors as a 18 y/o man. The army can fight citizens only when there are only a few of those citizens, and they are demonized, and when the soldiers think that the law is on their side.
“Jim Bridenstine is my representative and I was one of those who voted him into office. Im glad to have him around!”
You’re right, Bridenstine is excellent. Thanks for sending him to Mordor on the Potomac. We need about 300 more like him in the House.
Seems fairly obvious to me. The different government agencies are preparing to go to war against each other while fighting over the crumbs that are left after the economic destruction of the US. What else could it be ? They surely cannot take on the American people. They would need 50 million Chinese troops to even have a chance to pull that off.
The Egyptians and the Ukraines didn’t fire on their own people. I don’t put that faith in Obama’s swat team wannabes!
Obama wants a ‘Civilian National Security Force’ that’s as powerful and well-funded as the military. And rather than recruit from sources outside of the Federal government, just arm the reliable government union members that are already on government payrolls.
And there is none of that nasty ‘Soldier’s Oath’ stuff, either. Might get in the way of firing upon other US citizens. The current version of the oath:
‘I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.’
If not bound by this oath, then the armed representative of the Federal government may fire upon ‘domestic or foreign’ individuals without ever having to have them declared ‘enemy’, or following the Constitution.
‘We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives 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.’
And if this does not make your blood run cold, you have no blood in you.
Why does the Capitol Police Force need automatic weapons?
During his coronation, the Kenyan bragged he was going to create his own “civilian” army. He just didn’t tell us that he was creating it to use against US!
>>The people will certainly be outgunned,<<
Please clarify your definition of outgunned. Do you mean heavier weapons or fully automatic or artillery, just what do you mean by that term?
none of the agencies buying these will actually keep them.
they are using budgeted money from whatever alphabet agency to buy guns for organizing for action, dhs, and whatever other brownshirt groups they’re intending to arm.
these agencies are just funding mechanisms. they are “straw purchaser agencies”. and i coined that one before anyone else i am aware of.
There are far fewer of them.
I believe this is true !!
There is too much armlament and ammo ordered to satisfy agency self-defense.
Straw purcheses fits in this regieme scenario !
But the key question is , where is this stuff going ?
Fortunately the next President can undo anything that was ordered by Executive Order and/or is illegal.
Why don’t you excise that out of their budget?
Don't forget your body armor, boys... You'll need it if you think you are gonna make me put down this tall cold glass of grass-fed Jersey cow raw milk.
Lucky you. I wish Lynn Westmoreland (R, GA-3) had the guts to say such a thing. But Lynnguini is too much of a coward to say anything in public that Speaker Boehner doesn't approve of. What a wuss we just renominated.
I think it’s obvious.
Rocky Balboa might show up and start Beating the Meat.
I think they are worried about Mad Cow Disease!
It's time to get the Tea Party and the Oath Takers to combine their efforts by creating the Constitution Party.
Submachine guns are useless beyond 100 yards.(Believe me on this,I own one).When subgun armed people come up against folks with scoped hunting rifles,they are doomed.
A 7.62x51 defeats level IIIA body armour at all practical shooting distances.They are going to have to do better than that.
How about some in Congress grow a set and say EVERYONE CAN HAVE THEM!”?
Rep. Bridenstine: Why Does USDA Need Submachine Guns?
Well Duuuugh.. it like this dude just woke up....
Maybe he is an alien from another planet..
Police State creep has crept up on him...
he must think socialism is just an ideology and not a political disease...
Reminds me of 1938 Germany.. when socialism took over there..
Socialists band together and THEN “purge” weaker forces within their ranks..
They always do that..
Should be happening soon in the U.S. if not already happening..
Socialism is a political virus..
Because the fish cops, tree cops, tax cops etc. have them. The cow cops just want to belong to the club.
To tenderize meat. Ours.

Who would have guessed that America's most dangerous enemy was talking about BLM and USDA?
The scary thing is how many people will support him if he DOES try to take over. There will be millions and millions.
Because those fancy vests don't work against head shots. The good thing is, you can always take theirs after, since they won't be damaged.
Their vests will likely be rated IIIA.Useless against 7.62 fire.
organizing for action, black panthers, nation of islam, commie symp groups...
Why are they doing it? Because that's the only thing they can do. The government cannot mail order 20 million young, healthy men who are eager to die for that government's failed policies. All it can do is to order the weapons and hope for the best. That's why most of those weapons will have to be stored; there aren't enough warm bodies to issue them to. You can't give an SMG to an IRS accountant - she simply won't take it.
Well, at least those storage depots become a reliable source of military grade arms when necessary. You can see how that worked out in several countries in last couple of years, from Libya to Syria to Ukraine. Government supplies quickly cease to be government supplies if there is nobody willing to defend them. First, police and secutiry offices are raided, and their weapons captured. Then local military bases are raided. Then the raiders have it all - guns, bombs, tanks... everything. It's very hard to force your employees to kill, and it's even harder to force them to die. Give them an alternative, and they will take it. The police force executed an impressive disappearing act during Katrina - and those people were legally required to patrol the streets. I do not believe that "an employee" of BLM, for example, will be eager to become a live target. Those guys are brave only when they are hundred strong against one unarmed man. Only the volunteers will remain, on all sides.

That’s when the armored vehicles move in and, if they’ve got them, helicopter gunships.

The next president is likely to be every bit as committed to the march to totalitarianism as Bathhouse Barry is.
When the armoured vehicles move in,patriots will look for soft targets.Things get ugly at that point.
The next paragraph of the Newsmax article:
“The USDA’s solicitation was first reported by Breitbart.”
As usual FreeRepublic had the story ahead of everyone else: Breitbart, Drudge & WND, etc.
