In a puzzling, unexplained development, the Obama administration has been buying and storing vast amounts of ammunition in recent months, with the Department of Homeland Security just placing another order for an additional 21.6 million rounds.
Several other agencies of the federal government also began buying large quantities of bullets last year. The Social Security Administration, for instance, not normally considered on the frontlines of anything but dealing with seniors, explained that its purchase of millions of rounds was for special agents’ required quarterly weapons qualifications. They must be pretty poor shots.
But DHS has been silent about its need for numerous orders of bullets in the multiple millions. Indeed, Examiner writer Ryan Keller points out Janet Napolitano’s agency illegally redacted information from some ammunition solicitation forms following media inquiries.
According to one estimate, just since last spring DHS has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm. That’s sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times. Including illegal immigrants.
To provide some perspective, experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq war American troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. At that rate, DHS is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war.
Well gosh I can’t imagine why they think they’d need to be killing americans wholesale. Just because they’ve signed us on to massive amounts of fake debt that we didn’t incur after exporting most of our industrial infrastructure abroad, which will inevitably lead to mass joblessness, homelessness and starvation under the shock doctrine. But I guess most people think it’s all just another TV show which won’t affect them, as if this tragicomedy hasn’t come to life in countless countries around the world. I suspect the electricity will be the last utility to go out, just to keep people glued to the screen until the roundups begin.
Anyone with half a brain has known what to expect ever since the wall street bailouts of 2008. It’s just a matter of arithmetic. The money that is spent to pay back fake debt can’t be used to feed, house or clothe yourself. Don’t act as if you’re surprised.
