Does FEMA know something you and I don't know?

By The Political Commentator

FEMA is apparently trying to stockpile hundreds of millions of MRE's (meals ready to eat)

In light of the Saudi student arrested in Texas on charges of plotting terrorist attacks throughout the United States.

In light of global food prices rising 29% in the last year and now only 3% from the all-time high that was reached in 2008.

In light of riots that have begun in parts of the world over these very food prices that make this basic human need unaffordable.

In light of solar flares that have recently disrupted the electric grid in China.

Does FEMA and the federal government know something that you and I don't know?

Is there scientific knowledge of a Katrina size solar super-storm? A storm, were it to occur, that researchers anticipate would cause a widespread national power outage. Such an outage, if it lasted for any significant length of time, could lead to “disruption of the transportation, communication, banking and finance system, and government services; the breakdown of the distribution potable water owing to pump failure; and the loss of perishable foods and medications from a loss of refrigeration…” (globalpost)

With increased chatter on terrorist networks does the government have more than just anecdotal information of an impending terror attack?

Is there fear in the federal government that not only won't food prices recede but that they will continue to rise coupled with food shortages?

Here is a report of government food hoarding activity and you make up your own mind

"... One of the nation's largest suppliers of dehydrated food has cut loose 99% of their dealers and distributors. And it's not because of the poor economy. It's because this particular industry leader can no longer supply their regular distribution channels. Why not? Because they're using every bit of manufacturing capacity they have to fulfill massive new government contracts...

... Earlier this month, FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) put out a Request for Proposal, or RFP, for even more dehydrated food. The RFP called for a 10-day supply of meals - for 14 million people. That's 420 million meals. Typically, FEMA maintains a stockpile of about 6 million meals. Why the sudden need to increase the stockpile by 420 million more...

... In this economic climate, you would expect FEMA also to be minimizing expenses. But clearly, they're not. If you do the math, the approximate tab for 420 million meals comes to about a billion dollars.

What is so urgent that FEMA is spending a billion dollars on survival food..." (The Beaufort Observer)

    This is disturbing indeed, Michael!
     
    I grew up in the 50′s. My dad was an armchair survivalist, because of the Cold War. I remember him stockpiling canned food in our basement and reading about how to make yer basement into a fall-out shelter. His lovely flower garden had edible flowers, every one of ‘em.
     
    We’re there again. Seems like every Third World country with a beef, against us or Israel (and how did that happen, anyway) has the Bomb (and how did THAT happen?!).
     
    With bombs and rockets aimed at us and Israel, and the threat of massive solar storms, coupled with serious anger in our own country against the government, I am not the least bit surprised that our gubbmint is stockpiling.
     
    MY greatest fears, tho, are not knowing who is gonna get rations and who is not. WHO is gonna make the decisions of life and death in a huge, dangerous state of emergency? Will there be a massive recall of weapons first? Or in order to eat, one must find a weapon to turn in, in return for basic living needs?
     
    There is SO much underhanded, undercover behavior in this “most transparent government ever,” that I am almost sure that there is yet more danger to our populace, and we won’t know it until the danger is literally upon us.
     
    And all we got, us ordinary folks, are prayers, and the lucky few…bullets.

      Good idea, if it isn’t already too late.

    Let’s see…is it a Katrina-solar flare or is it Obama allowing Iran to set off nukes over us so the EMP destroys our electric grid, collapses our economy and allows King Barry to create the new socialist Utopia?
    What sounds more reasonable?
