Nothing new here... Typical

Nothing new here... Typical MSM, address and dismiss.

More lies

J Napalintano according to these DHS documents has requested more money every year.

2012 (57 billion)

2011 (56.3 billion)

2010 (55.1 billion)

inflation? or she giving herself and buddies raises. Either way, a big slap in the face to us.

What is a fox news?

I think it has vanished from my memory. turned off the "glow box news" 3 years ago. Ahhhhhhhh that's much better!

Wow.

That was incredibly believable. It was so much like truth you almost couldn't tell the difference.

LOL.

LOL.

"almost" !

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

FOX to America: Move along, nothing to see here.

No need to hop on that confusing and complicated inter-web-a-ma-thingy, spending who knows how much time wading through endless amounts of porn just to find anything relevant, doing your own research. There now. Just sit back, relax and let us do your thinking for you.

Feel better? Good! Now let's get back to important matters of hating on Democrats.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

FOX New is so unprofessional.

FOX New is so unprofessional. They failed to mention the #1 conspiracy theory reason the government is stockpiling ammo; They're getting ready for the complete and total economic collapse of the USA. I just can't believe how stupid that third rate broadcaster is for missing that.

Haha!

Woe to those still fooled by these overpaid talking heads! lol

Nah, the truth is, the mainstream media is dying, and the powers that be are on the verge of complete exposure.

Their lies become more and more blatant. Anderson cooper running his segment to debunk "conspiracy theorists" on Sandy Hook...lol

I like the new term instead of conspiracy theorists....why not "independent researchers", why they gotta try and call names? Especially when the ones calling names do ZERO research and just read from a script! lol bunch of losers with big broadcast stations. Don't worry, they are putting nails into their own coffin faster than we could hope to do it for them.

Even my father who just two years ago threw the telephone and yelled "that's traitorous!", when I suggested that 911 was an inside job. He did call back after he repaired the phone to apologize for his outrage. He is like 70, retired military, full on 50 years of brainwashing....but he's seeing through it and calling BS on what the "news" is selling. Has stopped watching O'reilly altogether.

And their octogenarian

And their octogenarian audience is literally dieing of old age by the thousands every day, but you already knew that.

wow... I bet they've already recorded

their spin piece for when the DHS actually starts using that ammo on the People.
Betcha the pay-off to Faux for that disinfo wasn't sequestered.

The question: Is Fox News a front for gov. propaganda?...

has just been answered. Who'd have thought this to be true?

Party extension

Fox News is an extension of the Republican party. So yes.

The correct answer is

because the DHS is going to have to defend the gubbermint from the millions of angry armed citizens that will be coming for them after the "citizens" realize that the gubbermint has seized all the public and private pension funds and all other privately held assets.

Oh thank heavens!

I was really worried about this, but now that Fox News has exposed the conspiracy theorists and the ammo-greedy patriots I feel better.

It turns out the government really loves us and they just want to save us money.

i laughed so hard

Thanks for the sarcasm.
It's humorous though that they just wrote it off so easily. What about the rest of the stuff they've purchased? I don't think that can be written off like the bullets.

Homeland security statement: patriotism is now considered terrorism.
I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

How many hollow point bullets

How many hollow point bullets did FOX news say the DHS has taken delivery of? Can we audit th stockpile?

This is the 3rd time (at least) FOX has tried to whitewash...

....this story. Here is a breakdown of two of their previous efforts, which shows how utterly untrustworthy FOX is. http://arkansaswatch.blogspot.com/2013/02/homeland-security-...

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)

They first "question"

dhs's purchase of the 1.6 billion rounds, and then come to the conclusion that "they have actually bought less than 2011 and 2012." What bs! Who believes this shit? They shown that dhs has purchased less than 200 mill rounds in '11 and '12 and that is somehow less than the 1.6 billion contract they put out now? What kind of backwards math are they using?

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James

They said ammo purchases were

They said ammo purchases were down and only 103 million when it is 1.6+ billion. Complete BS whitewash story.

So what is the truth and

So what is the truth and where is the proof? Is this report accurate or not?

Typical MSM reporting

They just HAD to mention "conspiracy theory" twice...and then present inaccurate "facts". There is no way bullet purchases by DHS has been declining over the past two years.

Its so obvious to people that know the MSM is nothing but propaganda but when the brain dead masses hear this report...they hear "conspiracy theory","conspiracy theory", see AJ ranting, and then swallow the lies put forward.

Since all msm is controlled

Since all msm is controlled by tptb, I find it very suspicious that they are just now coming out with the story. My guess is to help debunk and cover up.

In my opinion...

... the most logical explanation is that the Feds are preparing to limit the sale of ammo to those with a license to do so... in other words, expect to buy your next box of 9x19mm from the ABC store.

LOOK

Just because the MSM reports something doesn't mean it's illegitament. What it means is that they feel the need to apply their twist to a growing concern. In the process more people become aware of the situation and form their own opinions.

Agreed

Assuming something is 100% fake just because was it reported on in the MSM is just as bad as assuming something is 100% true for the same reason.

It's getting to the point where the topic *can't* be ignored if the MSM wants to at least maintain the illusion of credibility.

A signature used to be here!

Of Course,

That tricky "purchase ceiling" to save tax money.... They put out RFP's for 1.6 Billion Rounds with many millions of hollowpoint (conveniently the amount "authorized") to get better pricing - but are not actually going to then honor those price quotes by not accepting the product.

Right...

And I thought this dude I met the other day was really informed

He was talking about this issue and I didn't realize that TV had mentioned it. Should have known. They talk about it on Scooby Doo and it means something to people. So stupid.

Why? because when the whole

Why? because when the whole world economy collapses and people are irate from having their jobs, 401k's Ira's, and bank accounts stolen by the Government, there may be a few people who go off.
