(NaturalNews) Often is the time when the mainstream media has been little more than a shill or an echo chamber for President Barack Obama, but when an organization flat-out lies about a well-documented truth, what little credibility remained within that organization should evaporate - unless, of course, you, too, are one of the president's ardent admirers.

Our editor and founder, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, and others began documenting a year ago ( that the federal government - and the Department of Homeland Security specifically - began purchasing hundreds of millions of rounds of ammunition. Those purchases, we reported, grew into the billions over the course of the next several months (

Initially, our reports and those of the very few other alternative media outlets willing to tell the public the truth were trashed and ridiculed by the "sophisticated class" as out-of-touch extremists with an avid imagination and hostile anti-Obama agenda - even though our reports were based on the government's own Federal Business Opportunities request for bids (like this one for 360,000 rounds of .40 cal. "jacketed hollow-point" ammunition, a type of bullet that is much more expensive and are not used as "target" rounds.

The government really is buying all that ammo

Well, it took a while - DHS officials repeatedly denied the purchases of ammo even existed - but eventually, after a couple other responsible media outlets chimed in and some U.S. lawmakers began inquiring, the department finally admitted that, yes, orders for billions of rounds indeed have been placed, but only as a means of saving money. Purchasing in bulk, you see, is cheaper (though in a subsequent follow-up investigation we couldn't find an instance where a government agency other than the Pentagon ordered so much ammunition and then tried to cover it up).

Perhaps at any other point in our nation's history, such ammo purchases - made in conjunction with the purchase of 7,000 assault rifles ( and thousands of armored vehicles ( by a federal agency that is not the military would have raised mega-suspicion among members of the professional (or pretend?) media.

Instead, most outlets have ignored this burgeoning story. Some, like The Associated Press, have even lied about it.

Here is the lead paragraph of an AP story dated April 8:

Gun enthusiasts fearful of new weapon controls and hearing false rumors of government hoarding are buying bullets practically by the bushel.

AP plays role of useful idiot

"...Hearing false rumors of government hoarding?" That is about the most blatant lie you can tell regarding this story, especially after the department, albeit reluctantly, has even admitted it is buying ammo by the billions of rounds. This kind of bald-faced storytelling is not simply false and deceptive, it is completely antithetical to the historical role of a free press in America - that of a watchdog on government, and not just when a Republican administration is in office or in control of Congress.

DHS has played a huge part in this lie as well. Secretary Janet Napolitano, as well as every lower-level flunky spokesman in the department, has said the ammo is going to be used for "training." Even the FBO requests say that. Only, hollow point ammunition is not used for target practice. Cheaper "ball" ammo is, and any law enforcement officer or shooting enthusiast will tell you that.

And something else about the purchase of all of this hollow-point ammunition that the vaunted Associated Press and other "media outlets" have failed to follow up on or even ask about: Hollow points are outlawed for use in war by the Geneva Convention, in which the U.S. is a signatory. So, these purchases aren't going to the military.

This would have been news if Obama weren't in office

Finally, the AP and others have not bothered to ask why the government is hoarding (or stockpiling, or whatever else you want to call the purchase and storage of large amounts of ammunition) so much ammo, so many weapons and so many armored vehicles. Wouldn't the purchase of these items, if they were being made by, say, the George W. Bush administration, have been deemed "newsworthy" (as they should be)?

The Associated Press has shown its hand as little more than a propaganda wing of the Obama White House on this issue. And that should answer any questions you may have had regarding the perspective AP editors and reporters will take in reporting any abuses of We the People by this administration's "homeland security" thugs, who will be using the very ammunition and weapons the news organization refuses to even acknowledge. Those, too, will be "rumors."

Let's get something straight. This is not about "Obama the Democrat" or "Bush the Republican," though there is definitely a political perspective on the part of the AP in play here. What this should be about exclusively is that our own government is looking for all the world like it is arming itself to the teeth, and is doing so absent any obvious reason or logical explanation. Any presidential administration should be hyper-scrutinized for it, and the press is supposed to play that role.

The AP clearly is not, but, to be fair, they aren't alone.
