We have all been reading about the launching this summer of Operation Jade Helm, a multi-state military exercise that “conspiracy theorists” have been saying could be merely a cover to start rounding up “potential terrorists”. And, considering the proven track record of the present federal administration, their fears are well-founded.
Here is a link to just one of the many stories skipping around on the net that should arouse suspicions: http://investmentwatchblog.com/what-would-happen-if-martial-law-was-declared-in-america/
If you are not adequately informed, you need to be. This “story” may well become a major concern for us all. Already, other states have been added to the original territory of the exercise.
The problem for us all is that we the people are declared enemies of the federal corporate state. They said it, not us.
Now they declare most of us to be potential terrorists, and subject to whatever penalties and punishment their changing definitions embrace.
So are you…yes, YOU…in their crosshairs as one of their “potential terrorist” targets?
Remember the statement by Attorney General Janet Reno in a 1994 interview? It went viral.In the past 20 years, the term “cultist” has been supplanted by “terrorist”. Here it is:
"A cultist is one who has a strong belief in the Bible and the Second Coming of Christ; who frequently attends Bible studies; who has a high level of financial giving to a Christian cause; who home schools for their children; who has accumulated survival foods and has a strong belief in the Second Amendment; and who distrusts big government.
Any of these may qualify a person as a cultist but certainly more than one of these would cause us to look at this person as a threat, and his family as being in a risk situation that qualified for government interference."
BUT…as much as this rings true and we WANT to believe that this utterly disgusting excuse for an Attorney General actually made this statement, it turns out that she did not make such a declaration. At least not during the interview quoted.
BUT…here is a list of similar “potential terrorists” (you and me) that the federal government actually DID compile. You can click on each one and see the original document from which it was taken, but you have to first go to the original article. See
Here is the article:
“Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner? Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order? Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a “potential terrorist” according to official U.S. government documents.
At one time, the term “terrorist” was used very narrowly. The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden and other Islamic jihadists. But now the Obama administration is removing all references to Islam from terror training materials, and instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens.
And if you are a “terrorist”, that means that you have no rights and the government can treat you just like it treats the terrorists that are being held at Guantanamo Bay.
So if you belong to a group of people that is now being referred to as “potential terrorists”, please don’t take it as a joke. The first step to persecuting any group of people is to demonize them. And right now large groups of peaceful, law-abiding citizens are being ruthlessly demonized.
Below is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents. To see the original source document for each point, just click on the link. As you can see, this list covers most of the country… (sorry–the numbering got messed up somehow…)

We are moving into a very dangerous time in American history. You can now be considered a “potential terrorist” just because of your religious or political beliefs. Free speech is becoming a thing of the past, and we are rapidly becoming an Orwellian society that is the exact opposite of what our founding fathers intended.
Please pray for the United States of America. We definitely need it.
