Sarah Palin: Feds Are Stockpiling Bullets For Us


Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin took to Facebook on Tuesday and put her two cents worth in on why she believes the Federal government is acquiring so much ammunition. Her remarks, seemingly to clarify her earlier tweet, about the current economic situation in the United States and the massive debt we have hanging over us concluded by stating, "We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest."

Palin told those in Washington to "Cut the Drama. Do Your Job."

She then went on to expound what the vast majority of Americans think. She wrote, "Americans are sick and tired of yet another ginned-up crisis. D.C. needs to grow up, get to work, and live within its means. The real economic Armageddon looming before us is our runaway debt, not the sequester, which the President advocated for and signed into law and is now running around denouncing because he never had any genuine intention of reining in his reckless spending."

Palin also reminded her followers that the sequestration was the result of the long debt ceiling standoff in the summer of 2011. While she said it was not an ideal outcome for anyone, she attempted to claim that it at least included "real deficit reduction of about $110 billion per year for 10 years." Actually the number is much less than that and when spread out over ten years and over various Federal programs and agencies, the effects would hardly be noticed.

The former GOP vice presidential candidate said that American families had already been hit with more tax increases because of Obama's policies and bills he has signed into law, though she rightly points out that Obama calls taxes "revenues." We wouldn't expect anything less from a man that calls a "tax" a "penalty."

"The American public doesn’t want tax increases; we want government to rein in its overspending," Palin declared.

"If we can’t stomach modest cuts that would lower federal spending by a mere 0.3% per year out of a current federal budget of $3.6 trillion, then we might as well signal to the whole world that we have no serious intention of dealing with our debt problem," she added. "If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we’re running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we’re done. Put a fork in us. We’re finished."

Palin concluded her comments by stating:

"We’re going to default eventually and that’s why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest."

This is not from a conspiracy theorist people. This comes from a former State governor and vice presidential nominee.

However, she did not leave her comments with a sense of hopelessness, but instead encouraged the U.S. to put it's "fiscal house in order," to "stop the hysterics, tighten our belts, and take our medicine."

Previously I wrote about how DHS had continued their stockpile of ammunition solicitations, even while citizens are attempting to acquire ammunition during scarcity in the market.

Recently DHS put in a solicitation for 7,000 "personal defense weapons" that shoot 5.56 NATO ammunition that have "fire select" capability along with high capacity 30 round magazines.

Back in December DHS solicited for 250 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition. In September, DHS solicited for nearly 200 million rounds of sniper ammunition. In August up to 70 million rounds of high power ammunition were also solicited and in March DHS solicited 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets.

All of that is true, but to do that our representatives must be held accountable to their oath and that oath is to limited powers of spending. It would also require the people to understand those limitations and start calling their representatives to such limitations and voting out those that do not abide by them. For many, they are more concerned whether their team is in power rather than whether or not that team will obey the law of the land. We can no longer afford to think like that and must demand more from our leaders than mere rhetoric and we must look out for ourselves and our communities, should the feds decide they want to take up arms against the citizens of our country.

    I agree with Sarah...nobody will be getting anything from me, molon labe.

    So, how does Palin come to know about stock piling bullets. Since I doubt that she is privy to any US classified information, I believe that she is hearing voices in her head.

    Mrs. Palin was a small business owner and the governor of one of our largest States. The usurper in OUR White house never ran a business and was a lame member of the IL house and a lame junior US Senator. Are we better off with O-Bozo? I think not!

  • catman

    Stock up on weapons, ammo and bandages.........Why bandages ????? Because it is going to be one helluva bloody battle if it ever comes to it, and I personally feel it is not too far off.
    We the people may lose the battle, but you can bet the farm the feds are going to know we were there. It is maybe, just what this country needs to bring back the liberties our forefathers gave their sacred honor and their fortunes and in many cases, their lives for. I for one do not want their sacrifices and deaths to have been in vain.

    Obama's WAR ON AMERICA is LITERAL! This madman HAS
    an AGENDA! And it is FOR our ENEMIES and AGAINST US! That seems to be his
    general rule of thumb, other than stay or get in office NO MATTER THE MEANS! He
    is the "spoiler" of America and our Constitution! He is intent on
    bringing America down! Our ONLY HOPE is to TURN TO GOD in EARNEST! To REPENT of OUR OWN SINS! To PUT GOD FIRST IN EVERYTHING!

    Our ONLY HOPE is to FALL ON OUR FACES, FAST, and PRAY - as Esther and the Jews did in the book of Esther Ch. 4; as King Jehosaphat did in 2 Chron. 20 -
    calling out to God and getting our hearts right with Him is our ONLY HOPE! We
    CANNOT trust in man - especially our Prezident! We MUST fall on our faces and
    call out to God ALONE!

    "But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of
    faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not
    appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who
    died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with
    him." (1 Thessalonians 5:8-10)

    "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist
    the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh
    to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double
    minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to
    mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the
    Lord, and he shall lift you up." (James 4:7-10)

    Well Sarah tell Homeland security to come on if their coming because us Americans are also arming up and it`s not for rabbit hunting.
    There are 84,999,987 Firearm owners and growing by the thousands ever since obama became the President in 2009. Now in 2013 there are 100 million firearm owners that have in their possession 300 million firearms and those numbers continue to grow by the thousands. The Americans are coming.

    The Democrates laugh when you bring up the second amendment and make futile attempts at why we the people should turn over our firearms because we just don't need them anymore. They say times have changed and to many innocent children are being slaughtered by firearms. None of them know what they are taking about. I'm a retired Narcotic Agent. I've carried a firearm ever since Viet Nam and I consider myself just one of millions of gun owners who have never commited a crime with a firearm or anything eles. I own a home, I defended my country abroad and at home. I pay my share of taxes, I live a good clean life. I would never jeapordize what I have worked all my life for by committing some hyanis crime with a firearm. I lived and worked in Californa until I retired then moved to South Dakota where I could keep my firearms without worrying when the feds were going to show up at my door and demanding for me to surrender all of my guns. I was becoming quite parinoid and why. I wasn't breaking any laws. The firearms I owned and used in my law enforcement carrer yet I still wanted to purchase a few more firearms that I couldn't own in California as a civillian. Now Obama and his administration are taking over. I'm not too afraid of some intruder as much as I am our Government since all I hear coming out of Obama's mouth are lies and deception to further his politial agenda. I get worried when I hear him speaking of the way he wants to run things. I will take my chances by keeping what I have in my gun safe and know that I won't be a defensless individual who the Government won't worry about because I am unarmed. I want them to worry about me just so they know I won't tollerate a tyranical administration getting away with a singular goal of a total take over of our country. I don't want to go to jail or prison and I know my gun owning brothers and sisters are like I am, they just want to be left alone with our second amendment rights preserved for ever as our for-fathers intended.

    Well, if the fed's (read: private bank) are stockpiling ammo for me, I would like to know where to go to pick it up. I might need it later. One more thing: if the police call their AR15's defense weapons, then why are AR15's called assault weapons if a civilian has one?
    Thank you Ms. Palin. You have my vote.

    Sharing a paper received from a friend in Brazil. Sorry the translation is a bit "googled -up":

    See a familiar theme in the crap they are dealing with in Brazil?
    It's Joseph Gobbels' dung-heap.

    As far as the Marxists are concerned, THEY ARE DOING THEIR JOB.
    The destruction of America is their goal and no amount of political wheeling & dealing & compromising will satisfy their evil agenda.

    Their insurgency is about complete... only this little thing about 300-400 MILLION weapons in the hands of about 100 MILLION of us, is really holding them back.

  • Troy

    They don't call Sarah Palin a mental light weight for nothing. God forbid she had ever been elected President. She probably would have been passing out free guns to every citizen in the entire country.

    What about needing the bullets to herd us all into the FEMA camps? Even Beck finally found out about those. He didn't believe our government would build them.

    Dear Sarah,
    I will lay it on the line for you. I am ready, able and willing to stand with you and others if this disaster we call Obama gets any worse and becomes violent. The truth hurts but it is the truth. Obama will not stop until we stop him one way or another. He totally believes in what he is doing. His progressive liberals believe in him. It's time to call their bluff. If this is what they really want, we can and will oblige them.

    I'm stockpiling prayers for them if they do!

  • ch1ckster

    it's largely left unspoken but it's likely the case that many Americans have begun to feel so detached and distrustful of government that they want to be armed against the possible event of either a total collapse of government or a total tyrannical takeover by the people who are supposed to be serving us. It's still a ripple but we are seeing more reports of local law officers promising to defy the federal levels. Niot good. The President, Congress, and state legislators need to start thinking about the good of the country rather than their party, their ideology, their favorite lobby, being re-elected, etc. God help us all.

    I am counting on our military to DEFEND US rather than follow orders. BUT OBAMA could very well have his own personal army forming right now. I am actually wondering if he has the whole senate in his pocket through a threat of thug action.
