A bombshell exploded within the Alternative Media world when it was announced by a few websites that the Department of Homeland Security had just re-ordered another 700 million rounds of ammunition for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Glynco, GA.
I did not believe that for one minute, because I took the time and I counted each and every single type and quantity of ammunition being requested. See the article here: http://pprnnews.prepperpodcast.com/dhs-hunger-ammunition-sign-fear-weakness/#axzz23oXc0KiJ. And the article I wrote actually hit the wires first. It was basically ignored because of the newer bombshell.
This is the Excel chart that I made to account for the ammunition:

And this video outlines the total ammunition in this order, as well as all past DHS orders since Mr. Obama took office:
The problem was simple, and avoidable. This is the second mistake made by employee who has not had their work reviewed. The first was when it was announced, first on this network, that the National Oceanographic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) had ordered ammunition for the National Weather Service. It later turns out that the order was for the law enforcement component of NOAA, and not the NWS. As NOAA put it in a follow up request: “This FBO Notice corrects solicitation DG-1330-12-RQ-1028 that was previously posted through FEDBID and incorrectly identified the National Weather Service as the requesting agency.”
Now with the outrage of a possible order of another 700,000,000 rounds of ammunition, an amendment to the request included this:
A maximum of 70,000 million. And truly, that is 70 million too much considering another story that this network has reported about FLETC demands for ammunition.
A caveat on the FedBiz site states that the agency that posts the notice is solely responsible for the content. Truly, two people need to be retrained on how to create a bid announcement.
But the take home message is this: Do your homework. Just because I say something is white does not mean that I’m mistaken. Many of us are so far on the fringe that making a mistake of this magnitude is character suicide.
Bad actions by bad actors may be in the works. Plan on this happening. And then execute your plan. If nothing happens, then great, you’re ready for the alien invasion so many people speak of.
Whatever happens, just keep prepping like your life depends on it. Because it does.
