The establishment media is attempting to discredit what it characterizes as “conspiracy theories” surrounding massive government ammunition purchases.

The choreographed propaganda campaign follows an article by Paul Joseph Watson posted on August 15. Watson wrote his article after a solicitation was posted by the SSA on the FedBizOpps website asking contractors to supply 174,000 rounds of “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition.”

On Tuesday, the Associated Press,CNN and other corporate media outlets simultaneously posted articles making the argument that 174,000 hollow-point bullets purchased by the Social Security Administration will be used primarily for target practice.

Social Security investigators “use this ammunition during their mandatory quarterly firearms qualifications and other training sessions, to ensure agent and public safety,” a statement issued by the agency claims.

The target practice argument, however, is misleading. “Full house” hollow point ammunition is not generally used for target practice, less expensive “range quality” practice ammo is, although it is entirely conceivable that an unchecked spendthrift government agency would use expensive hollow-point ammunition for this purpose.

The AP and CNN assiduously avoided mention of far larger government ammunition purchases totaling nearly 1.5 billion rounds. In reaction to news stories about these massive purchases, a solicitation posted on the FedBizOpps website concerning ammunition purchases made by the DHS on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) now contains numerous redacted sections.

The AP article sarcastically insists the Social Security ammo purchase “isn’t as tantalizing as an arms buildup to defend against unruly senior citizens” and ignores urgent warnings of social chaos and unrest issued by the IMF, the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute, and other globalist and government institutions.

An internal memo at Citibank revealed that the banksters lording over the economy also believe there will be social chaos and unrest after an economic implosion. Massive fiat money creation by the Federal Reserve, an analyst warned, will result in “depression, civil disorder and possibly wars.”

The CIA and U.S. intelligence agencies are also monitoring economic indicators and are anticipating civil unrest. According to the Washington Post reports, the CIA has added an economic situation report to its threat assessment for the White House.

The Army document specifically warns about an “unforeseen economic collapse” and a “loss of functioning political and legal order.” It takes to task an “American government and defense establishment lulled into complacency by a long-secure domestic order” and explicitly states that during an economic collapse or other incident producing mass civil unrest the government would use “military force against hostile groups inside the United States.”

In 2008, the Pentagon deployed an Iraq battle-hardened combat team inside the United States for “crowd control” patrols and other duties. According to the Army Times, the deployment “marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom, a joint command established in 2002 to provide command and control for federal homeland defense efforts and coordinate defense support of civil authorities.”

“The unit would also be deployed to deal with hostile crowds of Americans in the aftermath of a massive economic depression, potential food riots and race riots, if one defines the term ‘crowd control’ to match its reasonably applicable scenarios,” notes Paul Joseph Watson.

In light of preparations under way and the countless warnings of economic and social collapse by esteemed economists and political analysts, it makes perfect sense that the Department of Homeland Security, the Pentagon, and a wide array of government agencies are currently stocking up on ammunition to ward off angry and hungry mobs cheated out of their birthright and made homeless on the continent conquered by their forefathers.

It is the job of the corporate media to create fallacious straw man arguments and distract attention from the obvious economic collapse right before our eyes. The real tip-off is that the establishment media is now engaging in a concerted effort to portray journalists asking questions about the unprecedented ammo purchases as conspiracy theorists and “rightwing extremists” who should be dismissed sarcastically as lunatics.
