Which Event Do You Fear The Most? begin quote This is information you MUST have to understand the swiftly changing face of your nation and the world. 1. The Gov't is Stockpiling Ammo ammoThe Department of Homeland Security has been stockpiling ammunition over the past several months. In fact, according to the “Washington Free Beacon” the DHS has placed two full years, which comes out to 247 million rounds of ammunition into its inventory. Keep in mind that’s almost 1000 MORE rounds each of ammunition on hand for DHS officers than are used on average for our acting Army and military personnel. What does the Department of Homeland Security need with all that ammunition? Considering they’re a domestic organization – it seems like a very strange purchase and allotment. So much so that it’s prompted Republicans to introduce a new bill that would actually limit the amount of ammunition that the federal agencies are able to purchase and stockpile over the next 6 months. Representative James Inhofe (R-Okla.) has been quoted as saying that these agencies acting inside the US must provide “Transparency and accountibility” when it comes to the sizes of their ammunition stockpile. In fact, according to a recent article in US News & World Report, the GAO (Government Accounting Office) is also beginning an investigation into the matter. 2. FEMA & The Mysterious MRE Request. governmentOff the Grid News reported recently that FEMA (The Federal Emergency Management Agency) put in what they call a “Request for Proposal, or RFP” for close to 420 million meals. government Typically FEMA does keep some emergency stockpiles of food on hand just in case of a “Katrina Like” disaster, but their usual inventory includes about 6 million meals. The RFP in question was an increase of close to 7000% (yes seven thousand percent) over what they normally have on hand. What do they know that they’re not telling us? A terror attack? Or something even worse… like a global food shortage? Global food prices have risen over 29% in the last year alone, putting them perilously close to “all time highs”. In fact, food prices are so high in some underdeveloped countries that riots have started and even industrialized countries like Japan are storing ever increasing amounts of food. Once word got out that FEMA had put in the request… it just as mysteriously vanished. 3. They are Listening governmentYou’d have to be under a rock to not know that the NSA is listening to your communications. And even if you were under that rock… they can still hear you. What’s been fictionalized in every CIA action movie ever.. actually exists. The government, specifically the NSA, has been listening in on millions, even billions of communications on a regular basis. In this country, and its citizens. Not only voice conversations, but your texts, your internet communications – emails and social interactions. The NSA scandal is big news but according to not only “The Source” Edward Snowden, but others – it’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are unnamed sources who testify to the fact that there are drones in U.S. airspace capable of not only listening to your conversations, but also have the technology to record video of incredible and almost “sci-fi” level capacity, down to the street sign you live on and the tag on your car. Which brings us to… 4. The Police State Near You governmentThe terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon left many people injured, several dead, and the rest in total shock. It also led to a shocking display of “The Police State” in action. In the days following the attack, the city was on almost complete lockdown. Streets were bare. People stayed inside. Businesses were shuttered. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, it cost the city approximately $333 million dollars per day while this lockdown was in place. In addition, during the lockdown police were involved in a number of so called “no knock raids” which allow S.W.A.T teams to knock down your door, and ransack your house based on limited knowledge or even any evidence that you might be involved in any wrongdoing. All of this comes about as we enter an unprecedented era of “paramilitary” local police forces. According to a recent NBC News article “America's most in-demand police vehicle is a 10-officer 16,000-pound armored tank that takes bullets like Superman and drives 80 mph. The federal government buys dozens each year for local police departments. Do America's local police need tanks?” The ACLU has even launched a campaign to assess just how militarized local police forces are becoming, requesting records on how often these types of vehicles are used. What other tactics and military equipment may be in use by your local “serve and protect” brigade? The Obama administration has even upped the ante by providing the largest increase in the original “S.W.A.T.” program. “The Byrne program got a $2 billion surge in funding as part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, by far the largest budget in the program's 25-year history. Obama also gave the COPS program $1.55 billion that same year, a 250% increase over its 2008 budget, and again the largest budget in the program's history.” Radley Balko, The Huffington Post. 5. What Does It All Mean? governmentThe government MUST know something is about to happen. The scary statistics above indicate that some kind of event or social disorder is just on the horizon. It’s clear the government is doing these things because they have information that you do not. In this article we’ve delved into several areas of concern. But what’s the average citizen to do when it appears the government is preparing for and onslaught of social disorder? My advice to you is – prepare for the worse. Have extra food, water and other survivalist items stored up. It's better to have them and not need them, then to need something you won't be able to get later. end quote Just a rehash of much already known, but still things to think about. Prepare for the worst, pray for the best.
