Since the re-election of Barak Obama my head is spinning. I feel like I am on a rollercoaster, my head whipping from side to side, my stomach dropping and my senses reeling. Every day another radical issue rears its ugly head and threatens our freedoms.
This week I re-read some of the latest events making news and noticed that a startling pattern was beginning to emerge. Was I reading more into this than was really there? Or do we Americans seriously need to start worrying?
The first item was about how the Department of Homeland Security has just purchased 21.6 million more rounds of ammunition. This is in addition to the 1.6 billion it has purchased within the last ten months! Just to compare, during the Iraq war our soldiers used 5.5 million rounds a month. So, in the last 10 months the DHS has purchased enough bullets to wage full scale war for 30 years! Not only that, but they purchased 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles last September.
This is all taking place while the administration is planning on curtailing our second amendment rights in any way that they can. They are damned and determined to disarm us while they are stockpiling weapons and ammunition. For what? That is the question that we need to dig deeper into. Are they predicting civil unrest? What about the Civilian Army that Barak Obama so passionately talked about back in 2009? Could this be who the guns and ammo are for? He wanted a defense force as strong and well funded as the US military.
The second item that jumped out at me was the memo that surfaced right before the confirmation hearings for the new CIA director John Brennan. This memo put out by the Justice Department basically gives the Obama administration the right to target and kill an American citizen who they “believe” is operating with a terrorist organization outside of the country. It is so vague and broadly written however, that even some of the left-wing journalists and the ACLU are taking a second look at it.
NBC news obtained a copy of this 16 page memo and the wording used in it is extremely disturbing. It tries to explain the legal justifications for targeted drone strikes that kill Americans without trial for the sake of national security.
“The condition that an operational leader present an ‘imminent’ threat of violent attack against the United States does not require the United States to have clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future,” the memo states.
Instead, it says, an “informed, high-level” official of the U.S. government may determine that the targeted American has been “recently” involved in “activities” posing a threat of a violent attack and “there is no evidence suggesting that he has renounced or abandoned such activities.” The memo does not define “recently” or “activities.”
If this is true, then how long will it be before Obama decides that someone in the US is a threat? What “informed, high-level” official will make that call? What if they decide that a “right-wing, gun-owning, Tea Party activist” is a potential threat to the country? Will they take him out?
The third story that caught my attention was the transfer and gifting of F-16’s and tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. This ridiculous decision has been questioned by many in Congress but nothing is being done to stop it! Not only has Morsi continued to berate the United States, but he also continues to instill hatred against Israel in every speech that he gives. Even now, he is meeting with Iranian dictator Ahmadinejad discussing who knows what.
There is a definite pattern here and we better wake up. Why is all of this happening now and at such a rapid pace? What can we do to stop it or at least warn people to pay attention?
I have never been a conspiracy theorist but we can’t ignore the facts right in front of us. If we do, we do so at our own peril.
