Oath Keepers Exclusive: An FBI Denver Joint Terrorism Task Force handout being distributed to Colorado military surplus store owners lists the purchase of popular preparedness items and firearms accessories as suspicious and potential indicators of terrorist activities, instructing store owners to keep records on and report people who:
Make bulk purchase of items to include:
Weatherproofed ammunition or match containers
Meals Ready to Eat
Night Vision Devices; night flashlights; gas masks
High capacity magazines
Bi-pods or tri-pods for rifles
The FBI handout, entitled Communities Against Terrorism: Potential Indicators of Terrorist Activities Related to Military Surplus Stores also instructs surplus store owners to:

It's beyond absurd!
This is a police state which realizes it is very unpopular, and does not have very effective teeth . . . yet.
What about reporting those who buy Arugula?
Two words: pay cash.
MREs as terrorist weapons? Well, why not. How about add baked beans to the list to be safe.
Next Obama will put spies in Walmart, Dunkin Donuts and Family Dollar because he knows they are republican establishments but don’t expect to see them in Starbucks or Targets.
Who is the FBI Director?
Robert Swan Mueller III.
As roving gangs of black youth destroy parts of downtown Philadelphia, the FBI wants to know who is buying MREs?
I am ashamed my tax dollars are going towards this.
I have a list that helps me identify domestic terrorists,,
1)visiting camping stores and instructing the owners to turn over customer lists
2)Ignoring muslims and focusing on regular Americans doing normal things,
3)universal monitoring and surveillance of citizens,
4)Impeding and supressing free speech,,
5)considering ALL food production as a homeland security issue,,
6)Homeland security conducting searches at a high school prom,
7)deliberately destroying our economy,,
etc etc etc..
We are becoming a police state.
this is the same fbi that let guns and drugs walk? Truly we are in an upside down world Alice in Wonderland. Curioser and curioser.
Sir, he looked like Beavis from Beavis and Butthead!
great find. thank you for posting this !
none of those items, have been used in any terrorist attack.
if they are laying the groundwork by tracking people buying MRE’s, it makes me worry very much,
i do not underestimate them.
Ok, that’s really weird
Turn it over in your mind: the outfit that sold guns to drug-dealers is suspicious of you wanting to survive.
Oops! Yet another trigger on their list, no doubt. Then they'll REALLY want your ID, and come out in the parking lot to note your tag no.
I think the key word in the article is BULK.
Prepper ping, I think...
pay cash.....leave no trace where possible..
This is what you get when you have a racist, lefty douchebag with a chip on his shoulder and a low IQ for an Attorney General.
Well, I figured we already were on some sort of lists anyway. Cross tabs and double crossed checked, what with our WTSHTF preparedness for buying some of the stuff.
This new ‘threat’ won’t have any effect on what we plan to do next.
According to the article, the FBI is instructing shop owners to demand ID for people who buy MREs.
Under what legal authority?
WE are a ‘terrorist nation’ after all,, if you believe what our nation’s critics say..
Human rights violators
.. yet the masses of other nations would flee here to this day .. Go figure. ;-)
pay cash....stay low key...
Also, WTF is the "Bureau of Justice Assistance"?
Let’s take a look at the demographics:
Weatherproof match containers: All boy scout and girl scout parents, Everyone on the Gulf Coast (Hurricanes), Everyone in the mountain states who likes to camp.
Tripods and bipods: Every man, woman and child below the Mason-Dixon line. Ten year old girls in Texas get these for their Birthdays. Along with the new Barbies.
Mres: The entire Gulf coast, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.
These people have lost their minds.
People that buy Hip Hop records off of Amazon are a billion times more likely to kill someone.
Wonder what they’d think if 50 million or so people bought some of this stuff and were put on their list. Or even 15 million.
Want to put the surplus stores out of business?
To the group of people that consider a 4 gun collection a "weapons cache", Bulk takes on a unique meaning.
LoL! And don't post on public forums!
Especially on threads titled "FBI Wants Surplus Stores To Spy on Customers".
Why don't you investigate the usurper Kenyan clown in the Whitehouse......?
“Two words: pay cash.”
That’s one of the things the government considers
You should have bought all this stuff already. Like, before the klinton aw ban.
Savage noted a few weeks ago that the US is, and has been in a state of quiet seige for some time, but most don’t notice it due to the incremental nature of the heat being turned up. The terrorists won. Everyone is now constantly looking over their shoulder, and we are all just one slip-up away from prison for any of a myriad of trumped up charges.
Does this sound familiar to anyone who can remember WW2?This is one of the reasons Obama is not worried about the next election.
Nest they will want to know who has been buying large quantities of dried beans, flour, rice and ramen noodles. Lets not forget canning jars and lids.
A lot of the stuff mentioned in the handout is stuff I get from my disaster kit.
Not sure about their minds, but I do think they have lost their souls!
“Insisting” on paying cash is No. 2 on the list.
Apparently, by listenting to Dave Ramsey’s financial advise, I have become a terrorist to Obama.
I buy a case of MRE’s monthly thru a surplus store. I am also an “OK” I guess I’m on someone’s terrorist watchlist.
Well, Dave's principles and the idea of people and the government living by them DOES terrify The Won, so probably, yeah.
“To the group of people that consider a 4 gun collection a “weapons cache”, Bulk takes on a unique meaning.”
When I look in the gun safe, it takes me a while to decide what 4 guns I’m going to take to the range.
It is a legal intimidation psy-ops, basicaly. Because when the average joe goes there, he now is going to fear to be labeled a Nazi. THey do the same thing with gun ownership and the Tparty whereby average people are intimidated from listening or getting a gun, lest they feel the curse that it will turn them into some kind of Nazi.
The result is the only ones with guns will be the Nazis, the communists/unions, the government and criminals.
The sheep, the center independent, have got to wake the heck up. A wide mainstreaming organized sale/marketing of such items has to be undertaken.
“...I am ashamed my tax dollars are going towards this...”
You have nothing to be ashamed of.
You’re an American.
These assclowns who dreamed this up are the ones who should be ashamed. Not only should be ashamed, they should be publically stripped of any authority and shamed into obscurity.
We need a marketing scheme along the lines of “girls love real MRE guys” etc... even trying to get some metrosexual outfit like GQ to buy the stuff.
We need to counter this Zero psyops lead by the FBI
and at the same time the website Ready.gov is ENCOURAGING you to go out and buy these things
