Source says government ammo purchase story a disinformation campaign

New information has been received indicating that the widely circulated story concerning a massive ammunition purchase by various civilian agencies of the federal government is part of a disinformation campaign designed to "smoke out" citizens who fear that the government is gearing up for a confrontation with the public.

The source is a trusted, well-placed informant who has significant contacts with government personnel and who has access to records which cast doubt on the story that the Social Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security bought over 1.2 billion rounds of deadly hollow point ammo.

Just a personal word...

Hey, folks, just a personal word here.

I'm sure you've noticed that the 2A News Roundup was not presented this week at all. My sincere apologies for that, but it could not be helped. This is one of those weeks I had to do the bare minimum (my Examiner articles) for reasons I have told you about before.

Thankfully this time things do not appear to be bad enough to warrant this going on much longer. So I expect to have the Roundup section back up and running next week...if not Monday, then definitely Tuesday.

Thank you for dropping by these pages on a regular basis. I do sincerely appreciate it. And although my little blog here never did really make the "big time" like some others, never in my wildest dreams when I started in 2006 would I have thought I would be able to draw in 400 to 800 readers per day...not a bad following for an obscure little blog that I wrote using a pen name for the first 3 years of its existence.

I'm sorry to have fooled most of you into thinking I was "D. Martyn Lloyd-Morgan," but heck, I was new to this and I had been told by other bloggers never to use your real name, that anonymity was essential.

All of that changed when I started writing for the Examiner, which required a real name at the time.

But most of you who blogged in the early years of the phenomenon understand what I'm talking about, I think.

Anyway, take care, and please remember how much I appreciate you as readers. Some of you have become very dear to me, and I thank you.

Massive govt ammo purchases spawn new theory

When it was disclosed by various reporters in the alternative press that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other agencies of the federal government had purchased enough hollow point ammunition to pump five rounds into every single American citizen, many turned to the task of attempting to pinpoint a motive for the purchases.

Why would non-military government agencies need such a huge amount of ammo? And why would non-law enforcement agencies such as the Department of Education and the Social Security Administration need deadly bullets that are designed specifically not only to inflict as much internal bodily damage as possible but to kill?

Rational minds have legitimate concerns about government possessing such massive fire power, particularly at a time in American history when the advocates of centralized government control openly call for the end of gun rights for citizens and the repeal of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

However, the less than reputable musings of the conspiracy theorists also kick into high gear, postulating all sorts of explanations for the ammo that defy all logic and that lead the vast majority of citizens to roll their eyes in disbelief....

Controversial pastor cancels presidential forum

A controversial pastor who heads what is perhaps the largest Southern Baptist congregation in the world announced Wednesday that he has cancelled his recurrent "presidential forum" which he hosts at the church during presidential election years.

The Rev. Rick Warren of the Saddleback Community Church near Los Angeles, which is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, says he holds the forums so that members can hear a discussion of the issues "in a civil manner" from persons whose views are widely divergent.

In 2008, Warren hosted a forum that featured U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., who answered questions posed by Warren in their respective campaigns to win the U.S. presidency.

Warren had planned another forum this week...

Democrats show signs of election year stress

Although the mainstream media has attempted to play up peripheral issues that distract from the concerns of most voters, Democrats are beginning to show signs of election year stress as it gradually becomes clear that most of the circumstances are stacking up against them.

While the mainstream media and liberals focus on the misstatements made by pro-life Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin, voters have indicated in numerous polls that abortion rights and pro-life issues barely register on their radar screen in terms of priorities this election year. Americans are most worried about the economy, jobs, the national debt, and out-of-control government spending. These very issues are the ones about which President Obama does very poorly in voter surveys.

Drama brewing at the GOP convention

On several fronts drama is brewing for next week's Republican National Convention in Tampa.

In February the talk centered on the distinct possibility of a brokered convention, with no candidate having reached the required number of delegates. Such a scenario would throw the convention into high drama with no guarantee as to who would emerge the winner.

Such a scenario fizzled, however, when Mitt Romney surpassed the minimum number of delegates needed to clinch the nomination. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul suspended their campaigns.

If you've ever fallen for someone you could not shake from your mind...

And now for something a bit different.

If you have ever fallen for someone you could not shake from your mind, or "get over," or forget, this song says it all.

Smearing conservatives brings in the big bucks

A report issued today by Matthew Vadum indicates that liberal activist groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) rake in the big bucks each time they smear conservatives in the press.

In recent years conservatives have often complained about the smears and outright character assassinations that liberals level against them, particularly when there is a mass shooting.

Conservatives have often noted that even before the the police arrive at the crime scene, the mainstream media machine has already created and published a narrative that the shooter must surely be part of the tea party or associated with a nationally known conservative such as Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, or Sean Hannity.
