Reports are that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is engaged in a massive, covert military buildup. An article in the Associated Press in February confirmed an open purchase order by DHS for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. According to an op-ed in Forbes, that’s enough to sustain an Iraq-sized war for over twenty years. DHS has also acquired heavily armored tanks, which have been seen roaming the streets. Evidently somebody in government is expecting some serious civil unrest. The question is, why?
The read is chilling as perhaps we could see why Homeland Security needed those 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. Lik an conspiracy theory, the grain of truth is minimal while the ominous ramifications are huge. It makes a scary story. Rich bankers become richer. Martial law. Curfews. A Mad Max world and “Wolverines!”
But, the attempts to control things by the top down may not succeed very well this time. As the article states:
Ominous as all this is, it has a bright side. Bail-ins and martial law can be seen as the last desperate thrashings of a dinosaur. The exploitative financial scheme responsible for turning millions out of their jobs and their homes has reached the end of the line. Crisis in the current scheme means opportunity for those more sustainable solutions waiting in the wings.
Preparations for martial law have been reported for decades, and it hasn’t happened yet. Hopefully, we can sidestep that danger by moving into a saner, more sustainable system that makes military action against American citizens unnecessary.
Let’s hope so. It is more likely that this is simply more mainstream End Times rhetoric without the religious overtones.
