Sen. Rand Paul — who is a very important intellectual and Statesman of Liberty — decided to pass along a link today on his twitter account to the website of Alex Jones — the madman conspiracy theorist who thinks that a cruise missile hit the Pentagon, every mass murder shooter is programmed by Barack Obama, and the government is making kids gay via juice boxes.
And what was the link? Oh, not much. Just how Barack Obama is arming weathermen around the country to be his personal death squads who will murder and enslave the citizenry when the apocalyptic uprising begins.
Why would the National Weather Service need to purchase large quantities of powerful ammo? That’s the question many are asking after the federal agency followed in the footsteps of the Department of Homeland Security in putting out a solicitation for 46,000 rounds of hollow point bullets.
A solicitation which appears on the FedBizOpps website asks for 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets, noted for their strength, to be delivered to locations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass.
A further 6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey, with another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The federal government is clearly gearing up for the likelihood of civil unrest on a scale that could outstrip what we’ve already seen in countries across Europe.
While the establishment demonizes the second amendment in light of recent mass shootings and legislation is prepared to ban the sale of large quantities of ammunition online, the federal government is acquiring ammunition at levels necessary to fight a full scale domestic war.
Wow. I’m glad that you — being an important policy wonk, great thinker and U.S. senator from the commonwealth of Kentucky — shared such important information with your constituents, Rand.
Oh, by the way, I just spoke with Scott Smullen, the communications dude at NOAA. And it was a clerical error:
Due to a clerical error in the federal business vendor process, a solicitation for ammunition and targets for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement mistakenly identified NOAA’s National Weather Service as the requesting office. The error is being fixed and will soon appear correctly in the electronic federal bidding system. The ammunition is standard issue for many law enforcement agencies and it will be used by 63 NOAA enforcement personnel in their firearms qualifications and training.
Oh. I guess that explains it, Rand. An easy mistake.
Hey, but do you know how you can avoid such errors, Rand? You finally at long last stop giving attention and credibility to psychos like Alex Jones, and cease further embarrassing the state of Kentucky, which we didn’t think you could do any more than you already have.
But hey, that’s just me. I know how you can’t resist a good “armed government stormtroopers are coming to kill you” story. In fact… 2:1 odds say that Rand doubles down on this. For Liberty.
