The Police State - Comrade Obama has his Justice Department and FBI pressure businesses to spy on their customers for the government.
- If customers buy food in bulk they should be reported to the FBI.
- If customers pay cash for a cup of coffee they should be reported to the FBI.
- The FBI advises store owners to demand ID’s from all new customers.
- Wake up Sheeple. The Police State is coming.
As part of its effort to encourage business owners to spy on their customers, the FBI has labeled the bulk purchase of food as a potential indication of terrorist activity, despite the fact that FEMA itself last year purchased $1 billion dollars worth of storable food.
A flyer aimed at Military Surplus stores produced under the auspices of the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism project, encourages owners to report people who “make bulk purchases of items to include….meals ready to eat”.
According to the flyer, the FBI advises store owners to demand ID’s from all new customers, as well as asking them questions about their purchase and being aware of “suspicious statements”.
The flyer also characterizes paying with cash or “demanding identity privacy” as an indication of terrorism.
The federal government has gone completely overboard and is now educating the public to report fellow Americans for engaging in mundane behavior performed by millions of people routinely.
This flyer is just one of 25 being provided to businesses from across the spectrum, everything from Internet Cafes to tattoo parlors. Yesterday we highlighted how paying for a cup of coffee with cash is also a potential indicator of terrorist activity in the eyes of the FBI.
As Reuters reported on Monday, authorities are now treating those who “believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard” as extremists who are a potential violent threat to law enforcement.

Customers paying cash for coffee could be terrorists!
An FBI advisory aimed at Internet Cafe owners instructs businesses to report people who regularly use cash to pay for their coffee as potential terrorists.
The flyer, issued under the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism (CAT) program, lists examples of “suspicious activity” and then encourages businesses to gather information about individuals and report them to the authorities.
FBI Says Buying a Cup of Coffee with Cash is a Terrorist Activity
“Each flyer is designed for a particular kind of business,” writes Linda Lewis, a former policy analyst and planner for the U.S. government. “For example, this list was prepared for owners of internet cafes. Unquestionably, someone planning a terrorist attack has engaged in one or more of the “suspicious” activities on that list. But so, too, have most of the estimated 289 million computer users in this country.”
The federal government routinely characterizes mundane behavior as extremist activity or a potential indicator of terrorist intent. As part of its ‘See Something, Say Something’ campaign, the Department of Homeland Security educates the public that generic activities performed by millions of people every day, including using a video camera, talking to police officers, wearing hoodies, driving vans, writing on a piece of paper, and using a cell phone recording application,” are potential signs of terrorist activity.
