I Wonder Why the US Post Office Needs So Much Ammunition

I saw this article this morning, now just wondering out loud how the FED might be planning to deploy your friendly neighborhood post office to handle potential civil unrest. Thus far it’s not against the law to speculate, to ‘wonder out loud’ about such things, so I’m re-posting this article with some links. Lucky for me, I’m good friends with all the postal workers in my little Oregon coast village, and I take them fresh produce out of my garden every summer. We talk guns and ammo over the front desk when I buy postage, so they know I’m as armed as they are [ well, almost. ] I watch as ‘legal open carry’ folks with their favorite pistols sticking out of the back of their farmer’s overalls go in to get their mail. We’re all on the same team out here.

We LOVE law and order out here, and you can hear a pin drop after 9 pm in my tiny little town. Rapes, breaking & entering, car thefts, vandalism are practically ZERO. Why? Everyone knows everyone else is armed, and no one breaks the law. It’s not rocket science. We also have practically ZERO homeless laying about peeing on every public street corner. What you WILL find is a Christian church on just about every street corner, of some denomination or the other. I love it out here and I would gladly die defending my little town from the hordes. We quietly live and let live. But enough about us gun toting rural Oregon rednecks, gay and straight. Here’s the article. It’s more than two years old, but I just found it this morning. If our local PO is also buying “bullets, lots and lots of bullets” then I guess we have a few things in common. Next time I talk ‘guns and ammo’ with my buddy behind the desk, maybe I’ll ask him about it.

I’d like to pause to congratulate Mr. Donald Trump for achieving his 1238 delegate today and clinching the #GOP nomination for this fall’s national election.

US Post Office Is Buying Bullets, Lots And Lots Of Bullets

04-20-2014, 08:07 PM


The US Post Office is now counted among the federal agencies posting advertisement to purchase copious amounts of bullets. Some Second Amendment advocates are concerned about the large amounts of ammunition being purchased, according to a NewsMax report.

The USPS posted a notice on its website requesting bids for various types of bullets. The notice on the Postal Service website under the heading “Assorted Small Arms Ammunition” said, “The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition. If your organization wishes to participate, you must pre-register. This message is only a notification of our intent to solicit proposals.”
Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is speaking to the media and questioning the need for arming US Post Officer staffers. Committee Chairman Alan Gottlieb said, “We’re seeing a highly unusual amount of ammunition being bought by the federal agencies over a fairly short period of time. To be honest, I don’t understand why the federal government is buying so much at this time.”
National Shooting Sports Foundation Director Jake McGuigan also has raised eyebrows over the massive ammo purchases by federal agencies. McGuigan noted that the unusually large ammunition bid request announcements posted on government websites in the past year or so have prompted “conspiracy-type fears” among many gun owners. According to McGuigan, some firearms owners are concerned that the federal government is attempting to impact the Second Amendment rights of Americans via a back door effort to limit the availability of ammunition on the open market.

After the tragic Sandy Hook school shooting, ammunition and guns flew off the shelves when firearms owners grew concerned about the enactment of gun control laws which would limit what types of weapons and ammo could be purchased or that prices would raise significantly. Many popular types of bullet calibers are still in short supply today.

While it is understandable that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) would purchase ammo, there appears to be a significant increase in the order amounts. The DHS requested 450 million rounds of ammo as the FBI sought about 100 million hollow-point rounds. The requests to fill ammunition orders by a host of federal agencies that are not regularly viewed as an entity with law enforcement functions, continue to ignite questions and angst.
In late 2012, the Social Security Administration posted a purchasing request for 174,000 rounds of.357 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point bullets. The Department of Agriculture (USDA) began seeking 320,000 rounds of ammo around the same time. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAH) also posted a notice seeking 46,000 rounds of ammunition. Virginia Citizens Defense League President Philip Van Cleave asked the question many Americans, gun owner or not, were wondering about; why does the weather service need bullets?
Van Cleave had this to say about the non-law enforcement federal agencies purchasing significant amounts of ammunition:

“NOAA — really? They have a need? One just doesn’t know why they’re doing this,” he said. “The problem is, all these agencies have their own SWAT teams, their own police departments, which is crazy. In theory, it was supposed to be the U.S. marshals that was the armed branch for the federal government. What’s the need for that” Do we really need this? That was something our Founding Fathers did not like and we should all be concerned about.”

What do you think about the US Post Office buying ammo?

Top Illuminati Grand Wizard Albert Pike: “We Control Islam and We’ll Use It to Destroy the West.” (WW3)

Entire populations in the United States and Europe are being systematically deceived, over decades of TV & internet social engineering by an Illuminati owned world media, to accept the notion of a “peaceful” world Islam co-existing with the Judaeo-Christian West. This will never happen and it was never intended to happen. Left wing liberals, as good and well meaning as they might be, who believe that the Christian West will eventually find a way to “peacefully co-exist” with the violent expansion of Islam are not only deluded, but they are inadvertently aiding and abetting the arrival of the final global conflict of #WW3 by cooperating in the false collusion that “Islam is a religion of peace” which has no plans to eradicate western civilization.

While The World Parties Away on Super Bowl 50 Weekend, North Korea Bumps Up It’s Missile Launch Plans

What if? What if the world’s most deranged lunatic leader of the most reclusive, cruel, oppressive and dangerous hermit nation on earth decided to commit national suicide?  What if North Korea actually launched an attempted nuclear first strike against the United States on Super Bowl 50 weekend, while the entire free world was partying away, completely distracted and unprepared?  Sounds the plot line to a really goofy, poorly made Seth Rogen comedy film, doesn’t it? [ No, not really. ]

How long will the world stand by while North Korea’s Kim Jong Un continues to up, up, up the ante, getting ever closer to being able to actually hit the United States with a nuclear first strike. Sanctions are obviously not working, and they haven’t been for years. Is the free world really more or less helpless to do anything that can really put a stop to the diabolical plans of a nuclear armed North Korea? We west coast USA residents think about these things.  We think about them more than we should. We’re first in the line of fire, along with Hawaii and Alaska. Will someone, somewhere, please do something?  Once again, “Where is 007 when you need him?”

Cited: “Satellite images taken this week of North Korea’s Sohae rocket launch site show apparent fueling activity seen in the past shortly before a rocket launch, said Washington-based 38 North, a North Korea-monitoring project.

North Korean state media has not reported on the changed schedule.

On Friday, U.S. President Barack Obama spoke by telephone with President Xi Jinping of China, North Korea’s main ally and neighbour, and agreed that a North Korean launch would represent a “provocative and destabilising action,” the White House said.

Obama and Xi also said they would coordinate efforts to respond to North Korea’s nuclear test last month and said they would not accept North Korea as a nuclear weapon state.”

Ammon Bundy to Oregon Wildlife Refuge Occupiers: “It’s Time to Go Home.”

Since the FBI won’t reveal the details of exactly how it came to be that Lavoy Filicum was shot and killed as he stepped out of his vehicle yesterday afternoon, I feel it’s safe to assume that it was yet another instance when a brutish heavy-handed approach to law enforcement chosen by the FBI led to a moment of “shoot first, and think about it later.” This is happening too frequently in our country. It is further undermining the trust of everyday Americans in their government and federal law enforcement agencies. A full investigation into the needless death of Lavoy Filicum needs to be opened immediately. That should go without saying.

If you see the news story quietly disappear from national broadcasts as the month ends, you will know that the script is going out to “officially minimize” news coverage of Lavoy’s death, something which is done routinely at the national news network level when the upper echelon elites strongly desire that a news story or reporting on an event “just go away.” They will do all they can to make it go away. It’s the responsibility of top tier alternative news media outlets to make sure that does not happen, and that justice is served for the murder of Lavoy Filicum. Keep reporting people.

Our law enforcement agencies at the federal level are both spiritually and legally liable for the shooting death of Lavoy Filicum. Their souls know this. One is tempted to wonder whether or not the FBI shot and killed Filicum as both a dreadful moment of dark social engineering, and a ‘psychological / crowd control warning shot sent over the bow’ – meant to say in effect to the other occupying protesters, “Go home, or this will happen to you.”

The very next day, Ammon Bundy changed his tune, after the tragic, heartbreaking and unneeded death of his friend and group spokesman, Lavoy Filicum.  Cited:

“I’m asking the federal government to allow the people at the refuge to go home without being prosecuted,” Bundy said in a statement read by his lawyer, Mike Arnold, outside court. “To those at the refuge, I love you. Let us take this fight from here. Please stand down. Please stand down. Go home and hug your families.”

In a federal indictment unsealed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Portland, the FBI said Bundy intended for the refuge — which he and his followers occupied on Jan. 2 — to become a permanent headquarters for anti-government “patriots from all over the country.”

According to the FBI, Bundy says in a video: “We’re planning on staying here for several years.”

So, is this true? Did the occupiers of the wildlife refuge intend to create an anti-government movement stretching over years, and use the compound as their headquarters? Those are quite serious allegations of sedition. I don’t have the answers, and until yesterday, I will admit I hadn’t followed this story too closely. But I am looking into it now, and will report to my readers what I find.

Here’s what Ammon said today:

Christian Oathkeeper LaVoy Finicum Shot Dead During Arrest of Ammon Bundy & Seven Others

Christian patriot and Oathkeeper Lavoy Finicum was killed last night in a confrontation with federal officials during the arrest of Ammon Bundy and others. Finicum was Cliven Bundy’s neighbor.

The cruel and unnecessary events of 1.26.2016 which resulted in the shooting death of Christian patriot and Oathkeeper Lavoy Filicum are tragic. The confrontation and arrests took place yesterday about 4:30 pm pacific time at a traffic stop along highway 395. That’s when Lavoy was shot and killed and another person was also wounded.  For whatever contrived or mysterious reasons, mainstream media outlets waited until late last night to report the story, and did not break the news on evening newscasts, which they could have. I found it posted at 3am and re-posted it right away. This horrible shooting event need not have happened. I am heartbroken to learn of Lavoy Filicum’s death. I am praying for his family and send out sincere condolences. I pray that Lavoy’s soul will find peace in Christ in Heaven. – Screenshots blog author

BREAKING overnight:

JOHN DAY, Ore. — Ammon Bundy, the leader of an armed seizure of a federal wildlife refuge in rural eastern Oregon, was arrested and one person was killed Tuesday afternoon in a traffic stop in rural Oregon, the F.B.I. and the Oregon State Police said.

Seven other people, including Mr. Bundy’s brother Ryan Bundy, were arrested, the authorities said. Another person was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening.

The authorities did not identify the man who was killed, but a member of the Nevada State Assembly, Michele Fiore, who has been a supporter of the Bundy family, said on Twitter that it was LaVoy Finicum. Mr. Finicum had become a de facto spokesman for the occupiers.

The confrontation came after more than three weeks of growing tension and anxiety that put the tiny community of Burns — about a five-hour drive from Portland — into an international debate about homegrown right-wing militias, public lands and constitutional rights. Mr. Bundy, 40, and a group of his followers, adopting the name Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, about 30 miles southeast of Burns, in Harney County, on Jan. 2.

Pacifica California Oceanfront Real Estate is Falling into the Sea: Photos, Video

There’s a definite history here. What you’ll see below in photos and video clips is not a new phenomenon. It’s been happening slowly, for years, decades even – in certain west coast towns along the Pacific seaboard. But the high tides, strong surf and pummeling winter coastline weather brought to Pacifica California beaches by this winter’s El Nino’ is hammering coastline properties like never before.  These properties were built to take advantage of the breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean, perched atop high cliff sides, right above the beach. What’s happening now, during this winter’s extreme coastline weather, is a jaw dropper. The slow-motion collapse of the cliffs underneath these apartment and condo buildings is stomach churning and dramatic. You have to see this to believe it.

Residents in some of the apartments sitting perched on the now absolute crumbling away edge of Pacifica’s coastline are being asked to vacate the premises, often with less than 48 hours warning. It’s a slow motion weather calamity that serves as the ultimate cautionary tale – of where NOT to build a high rise condominium or apartment complex in Pacifica California, along with the dire results of disregarding earlier erosion of these same areas in years past. The spectacular ocean-side view is just not worth it when a multi-million dollar piece of valued real estate begins to teeter on the very edge of literally falling into the sea.

It’s Not Happening Just in Pacifica CA: Properties Falling into the Sea in Oregon, Alaska, Washington State

The stunning events taking place along coastal property lines Pacifica California are being repeated in other California towns, along the Mexican coastline, and in parts of Oregon, Washington State and Alaska as well. There are now entire sections of the world famous and beloved Pacific Coast Hwy 101, which runs from southern California, all the way up the Pacific coast into Canada, which are also literally crumbling away and falling into the sea.

Houses and buildings in Alaska are “literally” falling into the sea, Alaska Sen. Mark Begich told the Senate hearing:

“It’s a hard issue to grapple with because there are political views on climate change, but that’s not the issue. The issue is: it is happening. We can argue over it all we want. But, in my state, we see it every single day.”

Landslide Repair

The constant threat of severe weather related landslides in parts of California have created a lucrative business for some geologists in helping homeowners try to save their properties. Some can be saved, and obviously – others not. Bay City Geology in Santa Monica CA is in the business of trying to rescue and prevent landslide damage to properties. Their website is http://www.baycitygeology.com/landslides.html

Similar sudden landslide events in Mexico in recent years have wrought dramatic damage to roads and coastal properties. The driver of this 18 wheeler rig had to be rescued when the road he was driving on suddenly gave way and collapsed, with him and his rig driving on it. Very jarring image!

Mother of All Snow Days: 2016 Snow Storm Jonas Pounds the USA East Coast

Get the latest storm updates here.

http://assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.2507168!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/gallery_1200/blizzard-2016.jpg

The American east coast has had a rather mild, tepid and even warmer than usual winter thus far in 2016, until this weekend. A nasty nor’easter named Jonas began forming a few days ago as weather officials scrambled to get ready. The storm is now fully 1,000 miles wide, covering an eight state area as it moves north-northeast along the Atlantic seaboard. Extensive flooding is predicted along the coastline, memories of hurricane Sandy are called to mind as residents hurry to prepare for the worst. Predictions had been for snow accumulations which might rival some of the worst snow storms of the last 100 years, and now, 24 hours into Jonas, those predictions do not disappoint. This storm has been in the news at the top of all leading news stories on every TV channel all weekend.

Projected Snow Accumulations Winter Storm Jonas January 2016

Current Radar and Winds

The videos posted below are from folks living on the east coast and from local east area news coverage of the storm. When I last checked The Weather Channel Washington D.C. was up to 28.5″ of snow, making it the second most snow accumulation in the past 50 years. Not too shabby. If you live out there, may as well put on your snow gear and get out in it, because you will not be driving anywhere any time soon. There is a widespread travel ban for all non-emergency vehicles in many big cities. Brrrrrr.

Did North Korea’s Jan 6th 2016 Underground Detonation of a Small Hydrogen Bomb Light Up the World with Sudden New Earthquake Activity?

worldquakes1.8.16

In the world of known acts of pure idiocy by national leaders, probably nothing will ever top the deranged decision by North Korea’s Kim Jong Un on 1.6.2016 to actually detonate a small to mid-sized hydrogen device underground, creating a 5.2 Richter Scale earthquake which could be felt and seen roiling the ground all the way to China. The very next day US based patriotic weatherman and alternative news reporter DutchSinse noted an alarming burst of sudden new earthquake activity all over the world, but especially noted in the United States. One wonders whether there is a relationship between these two events.
