You probably won't see this in the mainstream media, and if you do, reports like this one will be dismissed as a "conspiracy theory," but I should remind you right up front that the legal definition of a conspiracy requires that only two people be party to it.
Did you know that the Department of Homeland Security is stockpiling some 450 million bullets of the type that are intended only to kill people and play havoc with the human body? These are .40 caliber, hollow-point bullets which mushroom upon impact causing massive shock, blood loss and damage to internal organs. That's nearly one point five bullets for every man, woman and child in the United States, including illegal aliens.
(I understand that any bullet that pierces the body can play havoc with what it hits, but these bullets are designed to leave nothing in doubt, they are anti-personnel bullets.)
But wait, there is more. In addition to stockpiling bullets, I received notification over the Internet the other day that the Department of Homeland Security also is amassing armored vehicles of the type used by our troops for street fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan – but this time they are right here at home! And we aren't talking about training exercises on military bases either.
Like this one.
And right alongside the DHS, other federal agencies are stockpiling ammo too, hollow-point .357 magnum rounds in this case, purchased by the Social Security Administration – 175,000 bullets, and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration – 46,000 bullets! And to really top things off, the feds say the bullets are for target practice!
As a lifelong shooter, one-time NRA certified instructor, and former member of a competitive rifle and pistol team I can tell you this; you don't normally use expensive hollow-point, anti-personnel bullets for target practice unless you have an endless supply with someone else (taxpayers) picking up the tab. You use target bullets which give you a reasonable level of accuracy to make sure that when you squeeze the trigger the bullet goes where you believe it is going, and they cost far less especially in these quantities.
The benefit of using hollow points is that they provide increased velocity, higher accuracy and the aforementioned results when they impact a human body. They generally don't go through the body, meaning there is reduced likelihood of collateral damage.
But get this; they are illegal in war! That's right, our military can't use hollow points in combat anywhere – legally – but investigators from the Social Security Administration can quell uprisings of 80-year-old pensioners by giving them lethal body shots from a .357 magnum! (The use of hollow points in combat was outlawed in The Hague Convention of 1899 according to Wikipedia.)
Now, after all hell broke loose on the Internet about this issue FOX News did post a blurb on its website. It said: "Federal agencies triggered a firestorm of conspiracy theories this week after they put out orders for thousands of rounds of deadly hollow-point bullets.
But the agencies, most recently the Social Security Administration, are trying to put a damper on the speculation -- noting the ammunition is "standard issue" and simply used for mandatory federal training sessions.
The Social Security Administration solicitation, called for 174,000 rounds of ".357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition."
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, found itself scrambling to respond to a similar report this week about an order for 46,000 rounds of ammo. Though the agency initially indicated it was for the National Weather Service -- leading to questions about why the National Weather Service could possibly need so many bullets -- a spokesman clarified the bullets are actually meant for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement.
According to NOAA, the specialized agents are supposed to have 200 rounds in their "duty bag," and qualification and training requires another 500-600 rounds per agent.
Yet, even if the Social Security Administration and the Weather Service can make some sort of case that they need armed agents, the .357 hollow points still leave big questions in my mind. Does a forest ranger really need to carry hollow point bullets in case he gets into a tiff with a guy who's keeping trout when he's fishing in a catch and release area?
This smells. And don't forget, the attention has been diverted to the Social Security and National Weather agencies because it seems redundant for them to have law enforcement contingents, but Homeland Security has ordered four-hundred and fifty million rounds of ammunition. For what?
I can go on at length here, but instead I'll just point out that these purchases have a lot of people very suspicious and the reason is that they don't trust the Obama Administration. Period.
The Unity President has been anything but, and he is surrounded by advisers who are openly communist, in addition to a few Islamic extremists, who believe the United States should be dismantled and reassembled as a third-world cesspool. Some of his mentors follow the belief that to effect change in the populace you have to kill 20 percent of the people and the remaining 80 percent will fall in line.
You can't blame Americans who have been listening to four years of non-stop propaganda from these people for not trusting the primary source of that propaganda.
But there is one last point that should be made – and this is for information purposes only. Alarming the populace is never a good idea. Upset masses of the general public have been known to grab torches and pitchforks and storm the palace gates, bringing down all kinds of repressive, dishonest governments over the centuries.
"Y'all" might want to think about that before you go alarming the populace by driving around America in armored war wagons and purchasing massive supplies of anti-personnel ammunition.
