Mark Levin: US preparing for
societal collapse by buying
up billions of rounds of ammo

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 2/17/2013 3:12:22 PM

On Friday’s night broadcast of his radio show, Mark Levin speculated that the federal government is stockpiling ammunition to ensure the rule of law in the event of a total societal and economic collapse. On Feb. 8, Investor’s Business Daily editorial writer Andrew Malcolm penned a piece about the Department of Homeland Security amassing what he called “sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times –including illegal immigrants,” or more than 1.6 billion bullets. “I’m going to tell you what I think is going on,” Levin said. “I don’t think insurrection. Law enforcement and national security agencies

Comments:
Is Mark Levin dabbling in coo-coo land, or are we on the verge of something serious?

Only reason I say maybe is because he supposedly worked in a cabinet department, albeit back in the 1980s.

They love to send us into conspiracy theories.

If in fact they are buying ammo it´s so there is less on the open market for legal gun owners to purchase.

Perhaps levin needs to come up for some fresh air rather than stew in his underground bunker

According to the comments following the article, Mark Levin is not the only person that believes this. I believe Hussein is doing his utmost to foment a revolution. His only goal in life is to be a communist/muslim dictator of the US.

And what would be their rationale for limiting availability of ammunition to the general public? Both roads lead to the same place.

Not mentioned in the article is that the ammunition in question is hollowpoint, banned for military use and foolishly expensive to use for training purposes.

Levin does more than dabble in coo-coo land. I heard a nasty rumor his ratings have been in the tank since the election. Looks like he´s making a run at Alex Jones´ listeners. Careful, Mark, Teh Black Helicopters are real, man.

Keep in mind that Homeland Security, NOAA, EPA, IRS, Dept of Education and others are purchasing hollow point bullets. Not regular bullets for target practicing but bullets to stop a person on just one shot. Most of these Government agencies are only to operate in the US. So if they can only operate here and they have, one shot, one kill bullets, why do they have them. There´s a great article on survivalbasictraining.com that answers the ´why´.

Why would the Social Security dept. need hollow point rounds?
Levin makes good points.
We all saw how the passengers on the Carnival ship acted when food became scarce.
Now, picture your town, your city..unions all on strike, no food being delivered, or perhaps the grids being disabled..or a dirty bomb in NYC. I know damn well the first thing they will do will be to seal the bridges and tunnels. HOW will the people act in 5 days when they can´t get out?

Another thought...the gov´t has always been a good place to buy up "surplus" ammo. Maybe they´re going to do some trading. Especially for branches that run out of budget monies, they unload some of their "extra" ammo. Just athought.

I see lots of disparaging remarks about the point being made by Levin, but in none of those criticisms are there any explanations as to WHY the government is doing what they´re doing.

It was nearly a year ago (9 months?) that we´d read that the federal government was buying up millions and millions of rounds of ammunition. At that time, it was the same: hollow points. Not the cheaper, ´hardball´ stuff, but hollow points.

Numerous Ldotters indicated that caution was due. They were roundly and openly jeered right here on L.com. And now, here we are again, some 9 months later, and again, the government is placing orders for millions and millions of rounds of ammunition. And again, there are some Ldotters who express a wary and cautionary eye towards the government. And again, there are Ldotters who openly jeer those that have these views.

And yet, still no explanation as to why. Why so much ammunition? Why hollow points? Why can´t the average consumers to to any of their usual retail store outlets and find any ammunition? Failing that, why are the usual online suppliers completely sold out - at ANY cost? Why? And not only "why?" but WHEN was the last time this was the case? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? There is a reason for everything.

I think Obama has a flood of executive orders coming down the pike and he´s not taking any chances on the possible reactions.These loons have a plan to write a new constitution.A new bill of rights.A guarantee to a house,healthcare living wage and any other goody you can think of. How they plan to pay for such idiocy is beyond me. It´s also beyond me that other countries would sit by if Obama declared a civil war on his own people.

If this is a muslim takeover,it wouldn´t surprise me. Just look at how Obama is setting Israel up for the kill.

I´m also concerned about this cyber security bill.What if Obama declared a national security threat and shut all the banks down.

Homeland security is in the process of buying 1.6 billion rounds over the next 5 years. Some of these are hollow points. They say it´s for training purposes. We have a rogue government.

Some of you seem to have forgotten that Obama said, "We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded."

What does that sound like to you? And yes, I know ´FactCheck.org´ claims he was talking about just expanding the Peace Corps or some such rubbish but... I...don´t...think....so.

More like "I´m stirring up stuff, it´s what I do. It makes me feel so smart".

Talk radio numbers are down across the board since the "election", I´d bet they´re down on conservative web sites, too. Watch the gloating, Your Highness, when the two party system is killed, you´ll be eating each other. Oh yes, you will.

As for the ammo, if a gazillion hollow points are prohibited for the military, how about that domestic security force? I wouldn´t count on our military drawing down on American citizens, the new guys will in a heartbeat.

I´m not the conspiracy theory type but I think everyone should be on alert. If you have studied any history you should know that advanced civilizations eventually collapse, and the end is not pretty.
In the past 100 years so-called ´progressive´ Europe has descended into two savage wars, the last of which wiped out nearly 50 million people. Enjoy the lifestyle that you currently have, but just be aware that it could disappear rather quickly - at gunpoint.

Where is the gooberment storing the ammo? Perhaps another John Brown will appear and take it upon himself to take and distribute the bullets and weapons to the people. It wouldn´t be the first time the people have defied the oppresso...oops! Government. A 1 million strong armed private army be no match for 50 million armed citizens. I don´t think our military would side with this administration in such a scenario.

I´ve been told, as of last Thursday evening, the ammunition is being melted down.

The reason is to keep it from getting into American gun owner´s hands. It´s not sitting in a warehouse somewhere waiting to be used against us. It´s being melted down. They don´t need it in order to control us. They´ll use other measures for that.

But they have to make sure we can´t get it. That means it has to be destroyed.

Buy what you can while you still can.

I don´t understand why the government doesn´t have to account for what they are doing with this ammo, or what it is planned to do with this ammo. It´s our money. I think to say its for training is an explanation that requires documentation and real faces attached to the documents.

Above someone noted that if Stinky the Gunrunner runs guns, he also runs ammo. Probably a good deal of this is going to the Middle East and especially to Syria.

It sounds to me as if ALIbama is preparing to arm his civilian national security force. If my memory is not completely gone I remember that the Germans called them the gestapo.

All of this will be in place when he riles up we Americans and they take to the streets. When this happens he will declare Martial Law (as predicted by a lot of us on these pages) and it will be a total take over by this evil man.

There is no other plausible reason for homeland security to be purchasing all of the weapons and ammunition. It is time for someone to bring this to the congress and demand that an explanation be given.

Sorry, Mark, I disagree.
Obama knows he cannot outlaw guns or pass huge taxes on ammo.
But he can create an artificial shortage by massive government purchases (After all, there is no budget on expenditures to worry about), thereby driving up prices.

This is the sneaky, socialist way towards gun control.

I think that some L-dotters may think this is tin foil hat time, but most of the negative comments are from the Trolls who lurk around Lucianne now more than ever. They pile on certain articles, and try to sound reasonable, although it usually comes out sounding garbled due to their Lefty illogical thinking.

Mr. o. has been working toward complete economic collapse since day 1 under the command of George Soros. That´s why the W.H. has a new Bunker, they fortified the vp house, and now they are working on a 2nd Oval Office with a secret entrance and exit.

The Left has always pushed for total control of citizens and population reduction. This is a two-fer for them.

Time to inject a little history. In Vietnam, the ammo to kill ratio was somewhere around 50,000 rounds per kill (or 30,000 rounds, if you take another guess). Given that level of suppression fire, 1.6 billion rounds would equal 32,000 kills.

That would not even wipe out Galveston (47,700 population).

Levin has not talked about this until the past few days; the information has been out there.

It would be useful -- and instructive -- to know how much ammunition the Federal Government has purchased over a period of time (more than the last four years) in order to determine whether these recent transactions are over the top or normal. Is the Federal Government preparing for civil unrest, or is it controlling the supply? If this Administration is purchasing a much larger supply than in the past, I would wager that they are anticipating and/or preparing for civil unrest on a large scale (based on many factors), AND they are also controlling the supply.

Levin is citing an Investors Business Daily article, so I don´t think he´s "off". I wonder if those criticizing him actually listened to the audio link in the article.

“I’m going to tell you what I think is going on. I don’t think domestic insurrection. Law enforcement and national security agencies, they play out multiple scenarios. … I’ll tell you what I think they’re simulating: the collapse of our financial system, the collapse of our society and the potential for widespread violence, looting, killing in the streets, because that’s what happens when an economy collapses.

“I suspect that just in case our fiscal situation, our monetary situation, collapses, and following it the civil society collapses, that is the rule of law, they want to be prepared,” Levin said. “I know why the government’s arming up: It’s not because there’s going to be an insurrection; it’s because our society is unraveling.”

Sounds perfectly plausible to me.

# 15 had the quote, go back and read it. Millions of rounds of hollow point? Just last week I read that Homeland Security was buying thousands of fully automatic "assault rifles." Even if those guns and ammo are for "training purposes" what are they training for? All the alphabet agencies (IRS, HS, Agriculture, ATF, DEA, etc.) are building their own private little armies.

I thought the Posse Comitatas law was to protect us from our own army. It sure looks to me like the Obamites are up to something involving automatic weapons and lethal ammunition.

The DHS is in the process of forming it´s own paramilitary force. They have assault weapons on order, lots of ammo and will have no problem recruiting minimum wage losers willing to shoot fellow Americans. Just take a look at what they got standing around in the TSA. They quit looking at Muslims long ago. Now they are eyeballing you and me. It won´t be U.S. soldiers or Marines suppressing the people.

Levin is a brilliant man and not "coo-coo" by any means. Did you know that the government ran a practice scenario as if the Tea Party took over a city taking into account that the police and sheriffs would be sympathetic to the TP´s cause? They worked out the whole game plan to ensure they were able to stop the insurgence and bring "order" back to the city. Why would they do such a study if they weren´t planning on taking more of our freedoms? And again, what is up with all those "FEMA" compounds that are guarded to keep people in? Add this to the "peacetime" martial law orders, the ammo, the drones, the attempts to crack down more on guns and invalidate the 2nd amendment, the 500 vans Obama bought that can see and hear into people´s homes, the laws allowing cops to bug and GPS your car w/out consent or knowlege, black boxes for cars, etc... Is it really so farfetched? Not to mention what the leftists have been doing for almost 50 years...taking over schools, media, Hollywood, institutions, etc.

Mark Levin said:

. . . I know why the government is arming up. It’s not because there’s going to be an insurrection. It’s because our society is unraveling.”

Mark, will you consider connecting a missing dot or two:

It is Obama and his puppeteers WHO have been unraveling our society. It is they who have been purposefully destructing our economy.

Obama and his puppeteers have been systematically devitalizing our military. By tilting the rules of engagement to favor his radical Muslim brethren, by lying in bed with Morsi while striving against Netanyahu, by reducing our arms, by depleting our nuclear strength, the putative Commander-in-Chief has rendered us virtually DEFENSELESS against attack on our soil, against attack on Libyan soil . . .

By pitting black against white, left against right, atheist against Christian, lasciviousness against morality . . . American against American . . . Obama has been knowingly and maliciously inciting civil war.

Now, Mark Levin, please think about these two dots:

What do you get when you connect Obama’s DRONES killing American citizens on American soil to the regime’s billions of rounds of hollow point ammo?

As long as we´re injecting a little history, #40, we should keep in mind that a major use of ammunition in Viet Nam was ´recon by fire´. We used to fire full-auto indiscriminately at places where the VC or NVA might be hiding. We´d fire into tree lines or any such places an enemy might be trying to hide.

So don´t confuse the ratio of total number of rounds used to make a kill. Once we had located the enemy, it took far fewer rounds to put them down.

It seems much less likely that any sort of pistol ammunition would or could be used for the same purpose.

On her Thursday broadcast, “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly brought on Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer to sound off on the latest excerpt of President Barack Obama’s interview with the New Yorker magazine’s David Remnick. In that excerpt, Obama blamed Fox News and conservative talker Rush Limbaugh for the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Krauthammer noted Obama has “the commanding heights of the culture” in his corner and said it was unbecoming of the leader of the free world to complain on those grounds. “At least he is not blaming it on climate change or George W. Bush

On Thursday, semi-retired radio talker Neal Boortz predicted the republican party will not win control of the U.S. Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, despite all the pitfalls the democrats and president Barack Obama are facing, particularly with regards to ObamaCare. The reason, Boortz said, would be the GOP’s tendency to run on issues related to social conservatism. Boortz explained the importance to the republic for a GOP win next year while guest hosting Sean Hannity’s Thursday radio show: this whole thing about Phil Robertson and what have you – it speaks a lot to what we have

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction. I think this analysis is wrong. It’s fundamentally wrong for this reason: The difference between what are being called the hard right and the moderates, the RINOs and the true believers, is really one

During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B. Stoddard. That panel was presented with a viewer who asked what would happen if an individual couldn’t pay an insurance provider in the event of some

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law. Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.

On Wednesday’s edition of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer faced off against left-leaning show anchor Jon Stewart on conservative ideology and the way it is presented. In this rare appearance on Stewart’s program, Krauthammer was promoting his new book, “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” and explained how in working on the book he realized when he had made the transformation from liberal to conservative. STEWART: Thirty years — do you ever look back on some of these writings and think, ‘What was I thinking?’ KRAUTHAMMER: It’s worse than that.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
