The Department of Homeland Security had purchased over half a ton of explosive nitrates that they wished to be delivered by the end of the month. They claimed its use was to train bomb sniffing canines. DHS has also put in an additional order of 750 million rounds of high-power ammunition.
Understand that this is in addition to the 450 million .40 hollow points ordered earlier in the year. This means that DHS has ordered in excess of a billion rounds of ammunition! And this administration was concerned over the Aurora shooter who had only 6.000?
PressTV writes about a study by Peter Tuchin titled “cliodynamics” in which scientists attempt to find meaningful patterns in history. It is possible that this may give us a clue. The article reads:
In the new study, Turchin, who reported his results in the July issue of the Journal of Peace Research, compiled historical data about violent incidents in U.S. history between 1780 and 2010, including riots, terrorism, assassinations and rampages.
The data indicates that a cycle of violence repeats itself every 50 years in America, like a wave that peaks in every other generation.
If Turchin’s model is right, then the current polarization and inequality in American society will come to a head in 2020. “After the last eight years or so, notice how the discourse in our political class has become fragmented. It’s really unprecedented for the last 100 years. So basically by all measures, there are social pressures for instability that are much worse than 50 years ago.”
