What Is Going On With Our Government?
Infinity News Network is determined to expose the American government any time it does something illegal, unconstitutional, or oversteps its boundaries. One only needs to look at our Transparency section to see the countless truths we have exposed about the wrongdoings of world governments. We feel it is important to share these facts because we understand that if the government is given an inch, it will take a mile. If we sacrifice even a fraction of a percent of our freedom, the government will continue to take and take until we have none left. And so far that is all we have suspected the government was ever trying to do, is take just a small amount of our freedom in the name of some cause such as security or prosperity or whatever it may be.
However, as we uncovered two very odd stories today, we started to connect dots to other stories we had covered in the past couple of months, and now what we are left with is just one question: What in the hell is going on inside our government?
This all started when we published a story on July 7 about a leaked army manual that revealed that military personnel were being trained to assist local and state authorities in the event of civil unrest and rioting inside America. The article pointed out how military personnel could be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest. This seemed wrong to us, so we chose to expose it, but our thinking was that the government was looking at places like Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, and the other Arab Spring countries and just preparing in the event that a large uprising did occur.
Next we found a story, which we had assumed was unrelated but equally important to expose, that was published on July 25. This story revealed that ex-NSA members were telling the American public that the NSA, DHS, TSA, and other organizations responsible for America’s safety and security were doing way more than the American public thought. They were very clear that the the organizations are spying on every single American, and that they were using a more foreign nation inspired dragnet blanket electronic surveillance and were capable of putting intel on every American aside for potential future crimes. Again, this seemed horribly wrong to us and a major violation of our right as Americans to privacy so we chose to publish the article and expose the dangers of this story, never thinking the two stories could be linked, just thinking the government was overstepping its boundaries like it always tries to do.
As we continued to keep our eyes open for violations of rights, illegal acts, and overstepping of boundaries by the U.S. government we came across the first big hint that something was awry. We found a story that left us feeling much like we find ourselves feeling today, confused and full of questions as to what our government is doing. On July 30th we published a story showing how the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) had rushed an order form for riot gear equipment to prepare for potential significant domestic riots at the Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention and next year’s presidential inauguration. The article also states that a few days before they had struck a deal with a company called ATK to provide the DHS with 450 million .40 caliber hollow-point ammunition rounds. Why did the government think there would be such riots? What were they afraid of? Or were they planning to do something that would cause massive backlash? We simply did not know and could not find the answers to these questions, so we continued to keep our eyes open.
Next on August 10 and again on August 14 we published two articles on the governments new surveillance system known as Trapwire. The article did not have incredible detail on what Trapwire was, because no one but the government itself has those answers, but it informed us that WikiLeaks had exposed that the surveillance system was in place, the creator stating that it was more accurate than facial recognition into cameras and had been strategically placed in major cities around the country. This as well seemed to be a terrible violation of our right to privacy, conjuring up images of George Orwell’s 1984 and ‘Big Brother.’ This was another sign that the government was gearing up for something that they thought was coming soon, but we could still not be sure what.
We originally saw the two stories on InfoWars, but however, as we are always skeptical of InfoWars and any site for that matter until there is confirmation from another site, we saw the two articles best summed up by Business Insider which states that the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) had requested 46,000 .40 cal hollow point rounds and listed the NWS (National Weather Service) as the requester. They have since changed that to say the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement is actually receiving the shipment and the rounds are standard issue. The article also states that the SSA (Social Security Administration) has requested 174,000 more powerful .357 hollow point rounds. Why so many hollow point round purchases for government offices? We are as curious and nervous as you most likely are.
Yes, all these things could be coincidences and our government may not be gearing up for some huge crisis that they are anticipating. We cannot comment on what we believe the government is gearing up for, because we simply don’t have those facts. The American people and media needs to demand answers from the government.
WikiLeaks and Anonymous will surely be ones to investigate what is happening with the U.S. government, and any memos and orders surrounding the ammunition and new government programs. Because any time a government with too much power seems to be stockpiling weapons and preparing to quell civil unrest and has been spying on its citizens the way ours has, it cannot be good. Many no longer trust this government because it has given them too many reasons not to. This is no call to revolution. This is not a call for violence against the government. This is a call for action. Americans need answers, and they deserve them. This country is only to be ruled by the consent of the governed, and it does not give consent to be ruled in the dark. America should take action to get answers, demanding them from elected officials and demanding them from the President. With enough voices they will have to hear us.
