FBI warns of threat from anti-government extremists

(Reuters) - Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.

The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard. (re the Gold Standard - What like, Ron Paul, Jim Rickards, Alan Greenspan, and me?)

Living in the 'Land of the Free'

No wonder increasing numbers of informed Americans are fleeing the land of the free.

From PressTV:

The US government has created a new program that would enlist local internet cafés as spies for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Flyers that list “suspicious” activities have been made accessible to the business owners in accordance with the program, the so-called Communities Against Terrorism (CAT).

According to the FBI, the “suspicious” activities that need to be monitored include the following: always paying the internet fee in cash rather than with a credit card, using the internet service at the cybercafé in spite of having an internet access at home, and participating in nonviolent demonstrations, etc.

People are also suspected of being terrorists if they own precious metals, purchase a flashlight or store a seven-day food supply.

An individual can be suspected of planning a terrorist attack if engaged in one or more of the listed activities.

Internet café owners are then advised to gather personal information about the suspected person, such as ethnicity, languages spoken, and license plates, etc.
