$7 Billion Strategic National Stockpile: What Is the Government Preparing For?

| |

(P.S. Are you prepared?)

un-vehicle

You may not be getting prepared for a major national disaster, but the government sure is.

I have been informed that in recent months numerous emergency food companies have been contacted by the government, and they have been told that their inventories could potentially be seized in the event of a significant emergency.  And as you will see below, the government recently participated in an exercise that simulated “an unprecedented global food crisis lasting as long as a decade”.  In addition, NPR has just revealed details about the very secretive Strategic National Stockpile program that is storing billions of dollars worth of medical supplies in warehouses around the nation.  This is a program that most Americans do not even know exists.  On top of everything else, strange reports of military vehicles with UN markings have been coming in from all over the nation.  So what in the world is the government up to?  Why are they working so feverishly hard to get prepared?

Let’s begin our discussion with the Strategic National Stockpile.  According to NPR, there are at least six of these warehouses at various locations around the country, and they are holding at least seven billion dollars worth of supplies…

Thousands of lives might someday depend on this stockpile, which holds all kinds of medical supplies that the officials would need in the wake of a terrorist attack with a chemical, biological or nuclear weapon.

The location of these warehouses is secret. How many there are is secret. (Although a former government official recently said at a public meeting that there are six.) And exactly what’s in them is secret.

“If everybody knows exactly what we have, then you know exactly what you can do to us that we can’t fix,” says Burel. “And we just don’t want that to happen.”

What he will reveal is how much the stockpile is worth: “We currently value the inventory at a little over $7 billion.

The NPR report indicates that most of the supplies are medical in nature, and this includes “millions of doses of vaccines“.

Could it be possible that the government is anticipating a major pandemic in our near future?

As I mentioned above, the government has also been preparing for a major food crisis.  The following comes from Vice

The US national security industry is planning for the impact of an unprecedented global food crisis lasting as long as a decade, according to reports by a government contractor.

The studies published by CNA Corporation in December 2015, unreported until now, describe a detailed simulation of a protracted global food crisis from 2020 to 2030.

The simulation, titled ‘Food Chain Reaction’, was a desktop gaming exercise involving the participation of 65 officials from the US, Europe, Africa, India, Brazil, and key multilateral and intergovernmental institutions.

So could we actually see such a major food crisis during the years ahead?

Well, according to Reuters global demand for food has already been surging, and one new report indicates that it won’t be too long before we could see “a doubling of food prices”…

Swelling populations and demand for food combined with ever scarcer water and land resources could lead to a doubling of food prices and trigger civil unrest in some developing countries, a new report says.

Demand for food with a higher environmental impact, such as meat, has surged as emerging countries like China and India grow in size and in wealth, said Martin Halle, policy analyst at Global Footprint Network (GFN).

“A few things are very clear: the demand for food is going up tremendously because of population growth,” he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Of course it is the job of the government to prepare for various apocalyptic scenarios.  If government officials weren’t planning for how our nation would make it through a major disaster, they wouldn’t be doing their jobs.

But what are we to make of all of the strange sightings of UN vehicles all over America recently?

According to my friend Ray Gano, UN military vehicle activity has recently been reported “in Texas, Mississippi, Arizona, Florida and now in Virginia“.

In particular, a series of photos of white UN military vehicles traveling through Virginia that were posted on Facebook by Jeff Stern has popped up in news stories worldwide.

Is all of this activity unusual?  If so, should we be alarmed by it?  Brandon Turbeville apparently thinks so…

For the past day or so, military convoys have been witnessed traveling both North and South, with lines of equipment ranging from Humvees, troop transport trucks, and tankers to military personnel following the convoy in civilian vehicles. Interestingly enough, many of the soldiers traveling in the convoy were seen wearing helmets, an unusual procedure for a simple convoy. In addition, the convoys were carrying what appeared to be construction equipment.

Although the troop movement may indeed have been a routine convoy and the United Nations vehicles may also have been a routine shipment from a manufacturing facility or even a simple and benign transport, the controversy brewing in the United States elections and the potential for civil unrest, the dangers of economic collapse, and the potential conflict with Russia are all potentials for use of United Nations “peace keepers” inside the United States as many have posited in the past as well as for some type of “martial law” scenario.

The armored UN vehicles that were spotted being transported through Virginia are quite impressive.  Here is some info on them from the Daily Mail

The VX weighs in at 16,600lbs.

Seating for two plus eight crew.

Windows do not roll down, instead there are locked gun ports on the vehicle that can be opened to shoot bullets out or accept documents in and are even big enough to pass through a can of soda.

In addition, these heavily armored vehicles are designed to withstand a gas attack and to be impervious to small arms fire…

Internal fans can keep bad air out, such as in the event of a gas attack, or bring fresh air in when reversed.

PA system to speak to the outside world.

Remote-controlled spotlights on the roof and pairs of red and blue strobe lights are mounted to each four sides of the vehicle.

Every window on the vehicle is filled with ballistic glass that’ll shed small arms fire like they’re pebbles and even resist a close-range shot from a high-powered rifle.

Each vehicle has nine gun ports, and so when they are fully manned they can lay down a very impressive field of fire.

At the end of the day, I don’t know what all of this means.

Everything that I just detailed could just be part of normal government activity that is simply receiving some unusual attention right now.

Or of course it could also be possible that the government is getting prepared for something really big, but even if they were, they would not tell us in advance anyway.

Personally, I am convinced that this period of time leading up to the election will be highly chaotic in America, and so my eyebrows definitely perked up when I came across these various news stories.

But ultimately the significance of all of this will be determined by what happens during the weeks and months to come.  Without a doubt things have become much more serious in this nation lately, and I have a feeling that they are about to get a whole lot more serious…

  • Rick E.

    The government is preparing to fight, and probably fight on different fronts. They’re preparing to fight we citizens if they need to, and are preparing to fight the world as well, as they’ve imperialistically and belligerently been provoking Russia and China–which is insane and simple minded at the very least!

    However, all of the governments preps won’t stop the elite from dying right along with us! Hiding in their bunkers for years will be futile, as they will emerge into a dark radioactive world, with not much to spend their billions on!

    Just read up on Agenda 21. Climate change is what will be used as the means to control everyone.

    • jaguar

      Don’t think so….

      • ron17571

        Have you actually read what Agenda 21 is about? Everytime one of those TV programs talks about climate change or polar bears or the weather it is all leading up to a way to control people.You will see.

    The biggest question, why are UN troops even in the USA. They surely have better places they could use their show of force. US out of the UN and the UN out of the US.

    Well guys, this is just another sign we are living in the last days, the 7 years of TRIBULATION has started, right after the Warning sign from God the 4 Blood Moons ended..first thing to happen was the deluge of Muslim Immigrants in Europe…. prepare now, while you still can !!!!!!

    • Joan Camara

      No need to be sarcastic. This is a reason for satan’s army to be immigrating to all these countries. And there’s a reason for the muslims to be taking high positions in government and other offices. I have articles of them being FBI agents, mayors, police chiefs, etc etc.
      Their at the top of our government, to the lowest…in our congress…blah blah blah. Wanna know why?
      What does it say in revelation? There’s a mark system coming. Who’s going in charge of this mark?
      But mostly,
      Who’s going to be beheading the ones, who won’t take the mark? Think about it!
      Now you know why, their here!

  • FreedomofSpeech

    Anyone who doesn’t know that martial law is about to be declared has not been doing any research at all. It will most likely come before the next presidential election. They know Hillary can’t win. They can certainly rig the election as they have in the past, but they know that the people will riot because we know that Hillary cannot possibly win. The masses will know that the election was rigged.

  • USPatriotOne

    You know what is funny, is unless your brain dead we all know the truth, but everyone is afraid of the Gov so they dance around the the truth. Lets put it this way, you would have to be brain dead not to see what is going on…over 800 Fema/Enslavement Camps, 2.3 Billion Rnds of Ammo, 386 Thousand Russian and Chines Troops on American Soil, and on and on it goes..!!! God help us, PLEASE!

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    “…and are even big enough to pass through a can of soda.” And big enough to pass through a grenade-or some other IED. Thanks for the helpful intel!

    Didn’t the U.S. start the UN after the second world War? We are financing the most of them? On U.S. soil? ?
    Is the real reason that Bill has been photographed sitting next to Chelsea?

    I think all of this could be to get ready. For the day after. Hillary gets elected.

  • David James

    The Government is preparing for the next civil war, and feels we are all the threat. We are therefore all expendable in their eyes. We are the Enemy. It is therefore paramount that we let NONE escape DC. We must kill them FIRST !!!

    Interesting to note that the links provided in the article are the only links that aren’t loading… AND the link to the FB posts of the pics of the armored vehicles in VA says:

    Sorry, this content isn’t available right now.

    Hmmmmm, you can’t call it conspiracy theory when stuff like this happens with this kind of article, yet the rest of the internet seems to be loading and working just fine.

    Also, whenever Mark Zuckerberg is involved, there will definitely be issues with Freedom of Speech…. which makes the timing of this article and the issues with the FB pages seem even more odd when you consider he’s building (aka starting with) a 6′ Lava Rock wall. Quite easy, with the stainless steel poles they’re using, to come back with extended height poles and wire.

    That’s not really conspiracy theory. That’s just looking at the manner of construction and the materials and thinking, “What would I do, if that was my fence.”

    Let’s face it… that 6′ fence is NOT about security… nor is it likely about pissing off his pre-existing neighbors who are now crying about losing their view.

    So what is it really about??

    I think it’s a SHTF prep of his property…. a sure sign that Mark Z sees everything transpiring around the world, in the US and with our next presidential election and he’s now so worried that he’s putting down a solid base for the real fence that is waiting in the wings.
