FBI says paying for your morning coffee with cash a potential terrorist activity, urges coffee shop owners to report cash-paying customers to authorities

Purchasing a cup of coffee using cash instead of a credit or debit card, using Google Maps to view photos of sporting event stadiums and large cities, and installing software to protect your internet privacy on your mobile phone — these and many other mundane activities are now considered to be potential terrorist activities by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). And the agency is now distributing a new series of flyers as part of its new “Communities Against Terrorism” (CAT) program that urges shop owners and others to report such “suspicious” activity to authorities.

“The Communities Against Terrorism program is funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance through the SLATT Program to provide law enforcement agencies with a tool to engage members of the local community in the fight against terrorism,” writes SLATT.org, the program of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance that is promoting the program, on its website. “To assist law enforcement in the outreach effort, templates of flyers containing potential indicators have been created for distribution to specific industries” (https://www.slatt.org/CAT).

The SLATT program offers both on-site and online training (indoctrination) for coffee shop owners, financial institution employees, tattoo shop artists, and many others into how to spot potential terrorist activities. Included among the many propaganda flyers the FBI is distributing as part of the campaign are ones for how to spot terrorists at local hobby shops and beauty supply stores, for instance, as well as flyers for owners of farm supply and home improvement stores (http://publicintelligence.net).

This little gem warns internet cafe owners to watch out for and report customers that always pay for their coffee with cash, as they could be terrorists (http://info.publicintelligence.net). Another ridiculous flyer intended for owners of boat shops warns them to be on the lookout for people interested in becoming certified scuba divers, as they could be terrorists (http://info.publicintelligence.net).

A few years ago, this type of outlandish fear-mongering and Stasi-style spying on citizens would have been considered a crazy conspiracy theory by many. But today, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with its “See Something, Say Something” campaign, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) “First Observer” citizen spying program, and the TSA’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response” (VIPR) internal checkpoint force, together with the new FBI spying program, are making this police state nightmare in America a tangible reality (http://www.naturalnews.com/034867_TSA_Super_Bowl_surveillance.html).

  1. Hello Watchers,

    I find this to be very strange since here in Ok. news we were told that our dollar
    was going to be recalled and replaced by a dollar coin by the fed. I also am suspicious
    of this idea as well since it would cause major disruptions in banking and gives the
    powers that be the golden chance to devalue any holdings people might have. Itt
    would take a great amount of time to create eneough coinage to cover the amount of dollars in circulation around the world. Our current systerm works very well and
    and there is no reason to change it . Once more it seems the powers that be are
    out creat chaos. How can we protest?
    .

  2. Hi, a friend of mine was making hollyday in America and when he wanted to pay somewhere with a 100$ bill they called the cops! Such stupidity! Tourist friendly is that not…

  3. In America there are large numbers of unemployed people who will not have a credit card but may still scrape together enough to buy a coffee. Are they terrorists or anti government, probably not however, this is more than that; this is so every transaction a person makes can be traced either by the security services or by the IRS.
    Big brother is definitely watching you under the guise of anti terrorism but in reality it is all about the control of the population.
    What is truly worse though, is that we the people of the world have let our governments do this with impunity. Remember America when Joe McCarthy was at his paranoid height, dare you question him you were branded a communist now you will be branded a cash paying coffee drinking terrorist.
