DHS Under Investigation by GAO for Ammo Purchases

By Elizabeth Flock

The Government Accountability Office tells Whispers it is now investigating large ammunition purchases made by the Department of Homeland Security. Chuck Young, a spokesman for GAO, says the investigation of the purchases is "just getting underway."

The congressional investigative agency is jumping into the fray just as legislation was introduced in both the Senate and the House to restrict the purchase of ammo by some government agencies (except the Department of Defense). The AMMO Act, introduced Friday, would prevent agencies from buying more ammunition if "stockpiles" are greater than what they were in previous administrations.

"Mr. Janet Napolitano is under investigation

for possibly having a penis."

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

couldn't pay me enough to investigate that.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

What if I gave you

1 billion rounds of ammunition, 100 Mine-Resistant vehicles, and a shiney-brand new penis? Sorry, .50 Desert Eagle?

Oh yeah, and all of that is paid for by other people.

Sorry John. I'm just...pissed. I seriously want to put some of our "elected" public officials in jail myself. I want to slap the cuffs on, read them their make-believe rights, and kick them in the balls when the cameras aren't looking.

If they say I kicked them in the balls in court, I'll say everything I did was within police policy. Then I'll pay the judge off while high-fiving the prosecuting attorney.


If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

We'll see how much truth we get when the gov't investigates...


yup, when public pressure actually works:


or, in this case, when AJ & Infowars audience's activism works.

they don't have to admit it; for anyone following this issue, we all know that the only reason why it gained traction is because of AJ & Infowars and their audience, and Drudge helped make it go viral.

much thanks to all who participated and hounded the CONgressional critters.

big ups!

I hope this is the real deal and

isn't just for show....

What would the Founders do?

Good to hear

I hope something really gets done. Let's e-mail bomb our congress critters to end DHS and TSA. Lets keep the pressure on. Let your congress critter know that you are their employer and you can fire them or not re-elect them.

"you can fire them or not re-elect them."

Where do you live? Not only can I not fire or not re-elect them, they know that.

This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:

I hear ya.

Our democratic congressman, Ike Skelton, thought the same. He was in tears when he didn't win the 2010 election and lost to a Republican after holding the office for decades.
