Mark Levin believes that the Obama administration is buying vast amounts of ammo to prepare for the collapse of our financial system and our society, and the violence that might break out as a result.

The thing many are missing here is that you have to believe the likes of Big Sis when they say this vast amount of ammo is for training.
How in the hec do we know they are actually training at the implausible rate they would need to with the mountain of ammo they have contracted for?
We don’t and it’s highly doubtful they are.
The United States has become an armed paramilitary camp since 9/11.
DHS has funded the militarization of every police dept in the country.
Sheriff Andy and Barney don’t exist anymore.

For what it’s worth, I believe Mark Levin does not go far enough in his assessment of Obama’s plans for all the ammunition he is buying. Make no mistake about this issue. The government is not buying all of this ammunition; Barack Hussein Obama is buying it for his civilian army with our tax money. I believe it’s not a matter of violence possibly breaking out. I believe Barack Hussein Obama is planning to foment an insurrection using his *agents provocateurs {SEE BELOW} so that he will have an excuse to murder Christians, Jews, and conservatives who oppose his Socialist/Marxist agenda for America. Through media propaganda he will probably make it appear that these civilians (Christians, Jews, and conservatives) are terrorists and that they must me abolished with any necessary force to protect America from them. *agents provocateurs – Persons employed to associate with suspected individuals or groups with the… Read more »

Fear. That is the basis of republican thinking. Look at the Bush years, no problems solved, no issues addressed. Just waste, fraud, death and destruction, based on his voting base being a bunch of shivering cowards, clutching their guns, worried about Saddam attacking them, demonizing anyone who disagrees with their lunacy.

PRAVDA & GUN RIGHTS The English version of Pravda (yeah it’s still around) thought it necessary to remind us of the historical fact that in 1917 the first move the Red Army made was to take away all privately held guns. This well armed population was what allowed the various White factions to rise up, no matter how disorganized politically and militarily they were in 1918 and wage a savage civil war against the Reds. It should be noted that many of these armies were armed peasants, villagers, farmers and merchants, protecting their own. If it had not been for Washington’s clandestine support of and for the Reds, history would have gone quite differently. . Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position.

They are buying ammunition for the same reason that the Fed buys treasuries. To drive up the price.

I just got this from my Federal Credit Union: Look at it folks, this is what Mark Levin is talking about: Re: Transactions Limitations Policy A federal law, known as Regulation D, requires that all financial institutions, including your credit union, limit withdrawals from share/savings accounts. This law allows members to conduct up to six withdrawals from a share/savings account per month. Any withdrawals in excess of the six per month allowed, forces the credit union to take action on your account. “What types of accounts are limited by this law?” Regular share or savings accounts are subject to this law, as are money market accounts. Your checking account is not limited by this law, and you can make unlimited withdrawals from your checking account. “Which transactions count toward the six allowed?” The following combined transactions cannot exceed six per month: •Checks or drafts made payable to third parties; •Debit… Read more »

Looks like Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck may be. He is loved by the progressives, and cost LA taxpayers millions by refusing to enforce the law against the occupiers. In fact, when they were occupying private property of a bank, instead of enforcing the law and the bank’s rights, he went out and chatted amiably with the lawbreakers.

Yes, you’ve identified one for sure. Has LA media reported anything honestly? Your friends need to know what you know, but keep your tone as bland as you can. When Eric Holder met with several Progressive Police Chiefs, I was able to get several names. The exercise wasn’t encouraging, but we do know to listen for cues in liberal code.

I heard this and it scares me because it’s a plausible explanation. If you know history, if you’ve seen what’s happened in others countries when the financial system collapses, you know to be worried.

Congress has created such a large bureaucracy that no one knows what’s going on. Even congressman have to read the papers to know what is going on down the hall from them.
Often, when asked a question, they say I only know from what I read in the paper.

I think they’re cornering the market on current supplies to prevent our citizenry from stockpiling it any more. The manufacturers won’t be able to produce fast enough to restock the shelves for a year, sooooooo 2013 is going to be a very vulnerable year. I read that the type of bullets the Feds are buying up are the type you and I would buy, NOT what the military buys. So, the kind of bullets that are used for target practice are the ones in short supply.

I’m a big fan of both Levin and Malcolm (Andrew is a friend, in fact), but I had a special forces buddy of mine read through the IBD piece last week and run the numbers, which I sent on to Andrew, who is using his sources in the military community to look into them. Here’s what my friend noted: “[…] If you click through the two articles, to get at where his ‘5.5 million rounds per month’ number comes from, you’ll see why. Soldiers in a combat zone don’t shoot much – not only do the combat zone soldiers make up a small portion our our nation’s military, but they are too busy running missions/operations to sit around training. The numbers would be similar if you were measuring how many pairs of running shoes they go through – choosing combat zone soldiers to cherry pick those facts is stupid –… Read more »

Why is the government procuring so many bullets? It an interesting and serious question that needs answers.

I believe a full-blown race war will occur in my lifetime. The tension between, blacks and Hispanics and whites & blacks is boiling under the surface all across the U.S. and Obama is only making the situation worse with his class warfare and bitter partisanship. When Latino’s outnumber whites in this country the proverbial poop is going to hit the fan.

The Left don’t just want societal collapse. They want what comes after it. They want anarchy in the streets, they want total and utter economic chaos, they want rioting, they want looting, they want blood spilled on the streets, they want a total and utter break down of society – Because THEN they can come riding in on a white horse, and say “We can restore order and peace, but only by implementing a Communist dictatorship where we have the power to do what must be done.” Nobody, at that stage, will be left to stop them. They’ll just do it. There will be martial law, curfews, executions for rioters/looters, executions of all their political opponents (from their “enemies list”), the abolition of all property rights, and basically just implement the Communist manifesto right here in the US.

It’s not a question of IF it will happen, it’s when will it happen.

One day, millions of Obama voters won’t get their checks or deposits, because we’ll be out of money. Then all hell will break loose.

If all of this is as Mark says, then Obama’s next step will have to be to “censor” our internet or shut it down completely. Lets face it, as long as we can communicate and strategize the elites will never win. Not only do we need to stockpile, but we will need to come up with a system or plan of communication.

Mark Levin has, I think, made the right diagnosis. Don’t forget that these ammunition buys started early last summer, way before the elections, way before Sandy Hook, and way before all this hysteria about gun control. I think the House should immediately stop all payments for ammunition by these entities, and should ask them to show their need. Publicly. They should also demand these entities show their plans as to why so much ammo is needed by them, and when they cannot, as surely the cannot – demand the ammo is sold back, else their budgets will be reduced by the amount spent on bullets. Some enterprising people might think about how to get their hands on allthat ammo. Don’t think the criminals haven’t thought about this, perhaps even done someraids already. Don’t forget that in the eyes of the socialists, criminals are victims, and belong to the class which… Read more »

Re: armed revolt and civil disobedience…
According to the GAO, there are about 50,000 law enforcement personnel distributed through 45 agencies. These are full-time agents, authorized to execute searches, make arrests, and carry firearms. Add in some 7,462 Customs agents the total approaches 60,000. This doesn’t include contract personnel, military CID forces or personnel from agencies with less than 25 officials in law enforcement.
All of these agencies are armed with military weaponry and SWAT teams. Couple that with the military arming of state, county and local police and then tell me we aren’t living in a police state.

I think millions of Americans would step up if obama attempted to infringe upon our constitutional rights along with sheriffs and law enforcement officials in many states and the administration shouldn’t want to go there. I’m waiting for another Waco while praying that it doesn’t happen. The divisiveness obama has practiced from day one and which has been one of his favorite tools has inflamed the country and many people are becoming a little anxious. It’s not unrealistic to think his chicanery just might bite him in the ass. We saw this before with Bill Clinton and Janet Reno, but Clinton had a clear head. I’m not sure obama is even remotely as intelligent as Slick Willie was. When you see leftists rooting for a rogue cop killer you know there are people out there who aren’t thinking too clearly and you would be advised to examine your options.

Stories like this stockpiling, and the amateurish back stories put out around Aurora and Sandy Hook, do one thing very well regardless of the real intent. They fuel deep distrust of government. Deep enough to trigger another Waco or worse.

Such a provoked incident could be just what the regime would need to complete the lock down, with much popular support.

Never let a crisis go to waste.

1.6 billion bullets is probably more than most of us can visualize. I understand that most of the rounds ordered represent pistol ammo. Here’s a visualization that I came up for myself just to get an idea of what 1.6 billion rounds would look like. Using a .40 S&W round as the typical, a box of 50 (like what I get at Wal-Mart) measures 6.25” T x 3.25” W x 1.5” D. So let’s say we go out on the highway, place a box of 50 onto the pavement on its short side (1.5” x 3.25”) and then keep standing up boxes of 50 next to each other until we’ve used up the 1.6 billion rounds or 32 million boxes of 50. When you’ve finished standing up your boxes, your line of boxes will be 757.58 miles long… which would almost get you from Dallas to Atlanta. WTF do they… Read more »

We might be thinking defense instead of offense.

The guillotines of France were commissioned and dispatched in large number to efficiently eliminate and intimidate populous opposition to the ruling class. When the people finally revolted these machines were put to good use on the elites and their bureaucratic minions.

Our elites might might want to be thinking how loyal their minions are.

If it ever comes to that, you will also need to be thinking about whether or not this nation will be vulnerable to invasion from another country. The most likely scenario would be an invasion through Mexico by some third party, probably China. It wouldn’t be an invasion of the entire country, but certainly some of the border states like Texas, Arizona, or California. If we are that weak and incapable of fighting back because of massive civil unrest, you can be sure there will be nations on this planet just itching to assist the Mexicans in giving us some payback for what happened to them in 1848. And if they can take back Arizona or part of California, they will do it if the time is right. The US Army (what’s left of it after the economic collapse) will have its hands full simply maintaining order in this country,… Read more »

1.6 Billion bullets is enough to shoot every American citizen 5 times over. Well, that’s convenient, as they will limit the magazines to 5 rounds, so one mag per citizen ought to do it without ever breaking their own laws. Sometimes, a conspiracy theory is not just a theory. It’s too convenient for this administration to scream conspiracy every time we get too close to the truth. When they do scream that, they can then just dismiss us as nutcases and move on with what they have planned. Back in the 50’s, we trusted our government. We believed they were there for our good. Perhaps, we should have mistrusted them way back in the 30’s, when they started all their progressive actions to take over the country. Then we wouldn’t be in this mess we find ourselves in today.

Levin is too kind in his opinion that they’re just preparing for civil unrest. Does he really think that the Left will have an epiphany and realize that their policies are to blame for said unrest, and that we’ll go towards free market capitalism? No chance. The Left will double down on their policies; they’ll advocate and then implement a top-down centrally-planned authoritarian dictatorship, thus enabling them to crack down hard on the rioting/unrest, but also achieve their long held dreams of establishing a Communist dictatorship in the United States.

I just hope I’ve emigrated before that happens.
