Is The Federal Government
Stockpiling Bullets? Behind
Sarah Palin´s Ammunition Claim

International Business Times, by Connor Adams Sheets

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/27/2013 6:21:33 PM

Sarah Palin wrote in a Facebook post that went viral on Tuesday that the U.S. government is stockpiling bullets in anticipation of any "civil unrest" that may result from the ongoing economic troubles facing Americans. But the claim that the feds are buying large amounts of ammunition appears to be based on a misleading anonymous email that made its way to many people´s inboxes beginning last summer.On Tuesday, Palin wrote a lengthy post about the debate over the so-called "sequester" that is currently gripping Washington, D.C. (Snip) And in this case, Palin appears to be wrong.

So HS needs that many "bullets", eh? According to the numbers in the article, that´s OVER ONE HUNDRED YEARS usage! Nah, they´re not stockpiling.

Thanks OP, for all the repeat Sarah articles. I like to be reminded of her. She is the best hope I have seen for a country truly in a state of disarray.
As for the bullets, I believed the story until I read the article this morning. It fits their pattern and passes the smell test. Now I am only slightly unsure. The fact I live with is that there is very little ammo out there, and what exists has been price gouged. Someone is buying up whatever has been made. Could it be freemen trying to stock up? Or maybe the communists wanting to hold onto power? Does it even matter?

I´m sure unscrupulous emails are put out from time to time. If the government doesn´t respond with the truth and lets the rumor ride, don´t you expect that people will become suspicious? Frankly, I think this administration loves this turmoil, because they refuse to be transparent.

The comment did succeed in getting her back into the news, didn´t it? If she has a concrete plan for dealing with this situation, I´d be happy to hear it. Otherwise, I´ve been hearing the same prediction since last summer, so it´s a bit old hat at this point.

This stockpiling reporting goes back to 2012. See the article: "ammo? what ammo? DHS takes unprecedented step of redacting mass ammunition purchase" from lewrockwell.com/slavo/slavo115.html, which was reprinted in turn from SHTFplan.com. The "redaction" follows on the widespread reporting of the DHS purchases of various kinds and quantities of pistol and rifle ammunition and can be accessed by searching the internet. The specification sheets to the suppliers are available for inspection. There appears to be an attempt to deny the written records of last year, and to discredit Mrs. Palin in the process. The record of DHS paperwork will not go away however.

Read the article twice.

Apparently, the author believes that WAPO is more qualified to assess motives than Palin, and like WAPO, sees nothing unusual in buying the next century´s practice ammo....all at once....during a budget crisis....while trying to keep arms and ammo out of the hands of taxpayers.

Sorry...I figure Palin is right on this one, just as she was on "Death Panels".

I don´t think the questionable part of Mrs. Palin´s claim is the government´s purchase of lots of bullets so much as her implication that the purpose is to use them against citizens. Against "civil unrest". Does she have a source for that charge? If not, it´s pretty irresponsible of her to make it.

Emanuel tightens cash controls
after $741,000 embezzlement
Chicago Sun-Times, by Frank Spielman    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/12/2014 4:53:36 AM     Post Reply
Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration is tightening the reins on cash handling to eliminate an embarrassing lack of oversight that allegedly allowed a low-level clerk in the Chicago Department of Transportation to embezzle nearly $750,000 in permit fees over a six-year period. In a memo to department heads, City Comptroller Dan Widawsky argued that “recent events have highlighted the risks associated with cash management” and the importance of “robust controls to manage” those risks. “We are the custodians of our city’s resources and you and your finance staff are critical to ensuring that such resources are safeguarded,” Widawsky wrote. “Each department head is responsibl

A diplomatic standoff between China and the Philippines that flared up two years ago in a dispute over fishing rights at a tiny shoal in the South China Sea is coming to a head after Manila decided to ignore Chinese threats and sue Beijing in an international tribunal. The legal case marks the first time that an arbitration panel will examine China´s contentious, and oft-disputed, claims to most of the South China Sea, one of the world´s busiest byways for shipping and a potentially rich source of oil and natural gas.

WASHINGTON – Lawmakers with strong ties to the Tea Party movement have gained a toehold in the U.S. Senate but it appears they might have difficulty expanding their numbers this year. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) are among those associated with the conservative, grassroots drive that has proved influential within Republican Party politics in a relatively short period of time. But a review of upcoming Senate contests reveals that more establishmentarian Senate candidates maintain an edge – at least to this point – heading into the primary season.

Obamas´ income drops 21% to $481,098
CNN, by Jeanne Sahadi    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/12/2014 4:22:14 AM     Post Reply
New York - President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama reported an adjusted gross income of $481,098 for 2013 -- about 21% less than the year before. The bulk of their income came from the president´s salary, but the Obamas also reported roughly $100,000 in business income from Random House and literary management company Dystel & Goderich. The White House released the couple´s 2013 federal tax return on Friday. Their federal tax bill for 2013 came to $98,169, according to their return. That´s an effective federal tax rate of 20.4% on the First Family´s AGI. But because they already paid $117,277 in federal taxes,

An agreement has been reached on where to bury iconic actor Mickey Rooney, ABC News has confirmed. A dispute was settled Thursday between Rooney´s estranged wife and his conservator, the Los Angeles Times reported. Rooney died Sunday at age 93. The conservator, Michael Augustine, filed papers Tuesday noting that Rooney´s wife, Jan Chamberlin, and her son Chris Aber had attempted to move his body against the late actor´s wishes. She wanted him buried at Westlake Village cemetery, where he bought plots during better times with his wife, while Augustine wanted to fulfill the actor’s wishes to be buried away from

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis said Friday he took personal responsibility for the "evil" of priests who raped and molested children, asking forgiveness from victims and saying the church must be even bolder in its efforts to protect the young. It was the first time a pope has taken personal responsibility for the sex crimes of his priests and begged forgiveness. Francis made the off-the-cuff remarks after coming under criticism from victims´ advocacy groups for a perceived lack of attention to the sexual abuse scandal and ongoing demands that he sanction bishops who covered up for pedophiles. He delivered the comments to

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation.

Sarah Palin is walking through a suite in the Peninsula New York Hotel in midtown Manhattan trying to find the great outdoors. The former GOP vice presidential candidate is being photographed before the launch of her new reality series, "Amazing America," which features human-interest tales about outdoor adventures, ranging from a blacksmith championship to a car race among pastors. But the suite doesn´t even have a landscape painting. She finally finds a window to pose in front of, but it´s facing a brick wall, not the wilderness.

From the anti-Koch ads running in Senate campaigns to Senator Harry Reid’s (D-NV) rant claiming the latest Ryan budget is a gift tailor-made for the Kochs, the Koch brothers appear to be everywhere the Democrats look. Or, the Democrats want to make it seem like the Kochs are everywhere. I’m not really sure. I think it’s kind of weird. A majority of Americans have never even heard of the Koch brothers.

The Senate made a historic change to its rules to limit the power of the minority five months ago. But to some senators, it might as well have happened yesterday. The raw feelings still lingering over Democrats’ unilateral change to the Senate’s filibuster rules were on public display on Thursday, when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) bitterly feuded over each others’ leadership. Reid accused the GOP of standing for little other than seeking to “stand around here and do nothing,” while McConnell said Reid had a “behavior problem” for the way he

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony.

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that
