US Government asks businesses to Rat-out “Prepper” Customers
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is going around to businesses asking them to rat-out preppers. “Preppers” are people who store basic survival supplies such as food, water, fuel, clothing, and ammo.

Preppers are “preparing” for disasters that shut down electricity, food, and other basic necessities we have grown accustom from having or acquiring at Wal-Mart or other suppliers. In a major disaster, these basic supplies are gone within hours of the disaster.
During both Hurricane Katrina and Sandy power was off easily for weeks and in many cases many, many months. When there is no power, there is no gas for cars, no Wal-Mart, no food supplies, no water, no nothing. You have to live with what you have. Most people can’t do that without any “prepping”…getting prepared.
If you have never had to survive without electricity and running water, you are doomed in the event of a disaster. How do you cook? Where do you get water? How do you purify it? How do you get around? (Remember, there is no electricity so gas pumps don’t work.) I have experienced this three times from different storms, the worst of which was Katrina. Its a tough life.
Many businesses cater to preppers such as camping stores, food outlets, army surplus, etc. Preppers prepare for all kinds of disasters including natural (i.e. hurricanes, tornadoes, floods) and man-made (i.e. radioactive, chemical, EMP attacks).
Now, the Government:
DHS and the FBI has been going around to local businesses passing out flyers and letters asking these business to snitch on their customers who are buying prepping supplies. State Troopers are often used to visit businesses and pass out the flyers too.
People who are considered “high risk” are those buying the following:
- High capacity magazines
- Weatherproof ammunition
- Gas masks
- Even match containers
These are all items that are legal for anyone to buy.
Their definition of a “domestic terrorist” is any one purchasing weapons, ammo, MRE’s (Meal Ready to Eat) or bulk dry foods, flashlights, weatherproof matches. These are all the basic survival items you will need in a disaster. See the actual FBI flyer.
Hey DHS, it would be easier to make a list of non-domestic terrorist. You have labeled most all of us in the Southern states, Up-State NY, and Pennsylvania non-cityfied people as domestic terrorist .
Cliven Bundy, the Nevada cattle rancher who stood up the the US Government (specifically the BLM) and defended his land and his rights with armed citizens is now being called a domestic terrorist by our government.
DHS needs this list of domestic terrorist as it is planning for civil unrest in the US and wants to know who might be threats in the event this does happen.
The saying goes:
Those who haven’t prepared, will be knocking on your door.
Those who have prepared, the government will be knocking down your door.
A National Guard whistleblower warned soldiers were being trained that in the event of civil unrest breaking out, “Doomsday preppers will be treated as terrorists.” report by Infowar.
I have personally spoken with two friends in the National Guard who have stated they have been receiving training on civil unrest and gun confiscation.
The US Constitution guarantees our right to bear arms, to pursue life and liberty, and to live as free people. The problem is our government didn’t get a copy of this Constitution. So, I’m afraid things between “We The People” and “our oppressive government” will only continue to get worse until a major “event” happens.
