    DHS Publicly Denies Preparation for Riots, Civil Unrest

    Paul Joseph Watson

    The Department of Homeland Security has denied that it is preparing for domestic unrest despite the purchase of riot gear and the hiring of armed guards which the federal agency freely admits are for “riot control situations” and “civil disturbances”.

    Responding to an inquiry by the International Business Times regarding the recent purchase of riot control equipment, pepper spray launchers, pepper spray projectiles, as well as the hiring of armed guards to protect government buildings, the DHS dismissed reports (primarily from Infowars) that such activity was related to preparations for domestic disorder.

    “These reports are false. The referenced Federal Protective Service (FPS) acquisition request for Protective Security Officers will replace an existing contract due to expire November 2014, which provides security and screening within federal facilities throughout upstate New York,” DHS spokesman S.Y. Lee said in the statement. “This routine acquisition planning is not in response to, or anticipation of, any potential situation.”

    However, that’s the opposite of what the solicitation that accompanied the hiring of the armed guards actually stated. Indeed, two of the ‘potential situations’ listed by the DHS itself as to why they were hiring armed guards to protect government buildings were “public demonstration(s)” and “civil disturbances”.

    Lee also told the IBT that Homeland Security’s recent purchase of pepper spray launchers and pepper spray projectiles was for “training purposes” only, adding, “The reports about the Department of Homeland Security preparing for any extraordinary situation or domestic unrest are unequivocally false.”

    If the pepper spray projectiles were for training purposes only, then why did the federal agency purchase 120,000 live projectiles in addition to 117,000 training projectiles?

    Furthermore, when the federal agency purchased riot gear back in June, the DHS itself again admitted that the equipment was for “riot control situations.”

    Why is the DHS denying in public media statements what it freely admits within the pages of its own contract solicitations?

    Whether America is set to be hit by domestic unrest or not, the fact is that Homeland Security is preparing for that outcome. That’s not making such a claim - the DHS itself admits it in their own documents.

    These questions were not asked by the International Business Times’ Connor Adams Sheets, who also characterized the DHS’ bid to “quash dissent, monitor public events, and infiltrate peaceful protest groups,” as a “conspiracy theory,” despite the fact that the federal agency has admittedly spied on and infiltrated peaceful advocacy groups since at least 2006, according to the ACLU.

    The issue of why the DHS is now hiring an armed domestic security force in Minnesota and Wisconsin which is required to have a “Top Secret” security clearance was also not explored.

    Just as with the DHS’ ammunition buying controversy, which again in this piece is erroneously dismissed as bulk buying to save money, an explanation we debunked months ago, the mainstream media seems to think that potential government malfeasance can easily be dismissed by merely reprinting the glib statements of government officials without any scrutiny whatsoever.

        • My rule of thumb when hearing anything the government says is based on everything is opposite. When they say they’re preparing, that means they’re not ready. When they say they’re not preparing, that means they’re ready. It also usually means they’re getting close to implementing things too. I guess we’ll see. Maybe they have another hoaxed event coming to go beyond Boston, LAX and Sandy Hoax. Count on it starting with some shit like this.

          Bring it bitches.

            Just like BO denied that anyone would lose their medical insurance provider. I just can’t believe how anyone could think that the government is in their corner or telling the truth. It reminds me of those cartoons in which the person is running as fast as they can with a keg of explosives and the lite fuse following them faster than they run, then off in the distance BOOM. You would think that the cartoon character would simply dump the explosive container, but they continue to carry it. Just the same as BO supporters and those that still feel the government on their side and working for them. Throw it down before the fuse catches up with them, but so many of the masses just don’t get it and continue to support BO, the elitists, DHS, and congress, right down to the very end, BOOM!

                The DHS is beefing up for the very thing
                they are creating, civil unrest.

                What a joke. Do they think they can pepper
                spray 300 million pissed off people marching
                on the Fed with blood in their eye and
                revenge in their heart?

                Well well, the government does have a sense
                of humor after all.

                • you don't need to know says:

                  Good morning ya’ll. My question to everyone here is what are you doing?

                  SOme of you say you don’t vote anymore and you get “yelled” at by other people on this site. If I vote, it’ll be for a third party candidate, which supposedly is a vote thrown away.

                  Some of you talk about “them” trying to come get your guns and what you plan on doing when they do…

                  Some of us are prepping, storing all the esentials we think we’ll need in order to survive what we all think will happen.

                  Some of us are still trying to open the eyes of our family and friends to what is coming.

                  I was listening to one of the many shows out there yesterday and it got me thinking. What am I doing?

                  My family has moved out of the city to a very small community, set up our house and am trying to get as self sufficient as we can before TSHTF.

                  But what am I doing? Nothing.

                  Yes I’m getting self sufficient and loving EVERY minute of it, but I’m not doing anything to try and stop what is happening… There’s ALOT of big talk on this site and I really want to know what you are DOING!!!!

                  And while I was listening to the show, I realized that the police state has already affected me. I”m not doing anything politically bc I just want to be left alone and want to crawl in my hole of self sufficiency. Even though I’m very aware of what is going on in the world.

                  Who’s right? Mac, who knows the government is watching him and everything he does or me that doesn’t see any hope for the way America is right now and will become very active after the reset?

                  Just curious what everyone is DOING? When will you know?

                  @ydntk i am praying daily, thanking for blessings and asking for wisdom. and like you, am in self sufficiency mode waiting for whoknowswhat. in the mean time, today skies are clear and the air cool. put a meatloaf and sweet potato casserole in the solar oven, this eve will get a fire going in the fireplace and make an apple crumble for dessert. top off the day with a warm cup of hard cider and thank God once again for these many blessings. sometimes thats all i can do.

                  Hey there ding-a-ling! Have any of you so-called “blood thirsty for revolution” single-IQ folks ever been in a revolution? Ever been in a true civil uprising? Ever been in an area with civil unrest?

                  Be careful what you wish for.

                  Have any of you stopped to consider the distinct possibility that this entire Obama lie about being able to keep one’s insurance was deliberately calculated to enrage people? That it was deliberately calculated to provoke people into an actual uprising?

                  Quiz: What does Communism need for complete ascendancy to complete power? Answer: Chaos and breakdown of law and order.

                  These commies know what they’re doing. They’re evil, but they’re not stupid people.

                  The smart way to stop this is to bring profound and unrelenting pressure on our legislators to impeach Obama. All of the necessary constitutional requirements for impeachment have been met. Boehner wouldn’t make a bad President — not the best, but not the worst, and he wouldn’t be President beyond the constitutional term. And he, above all, would be in a position to set this country back on the right path and make the appointments necessary to restore this nation’s true culture and traditional values.

                  But pitchforks and torches? Won’t work and will play directly into the hands of Obama and his commies.

                  Other ideas for how to stop this evisceration of the country, short of violent revolution? Let’s hear them. But trust me, you don’t want violent revolution.

                  As for the unworthy welfare recipients who WILL riot when they get cut off from the welfare gravy train once Obama is gone….well, that’s where military and police force with lethal means keeps order. But that power must be under the control of a loyal American President, who wields it wisely, effectively, and lawfully.

                  Here is what I am doing. Everyday I use the internet to spread the word and not just to my friends to everybody. Its a old sales trick. Use hunting dogs for leads.By using social media and blogs you can get to thousands of minds and just plant 1 seed and see if it grows.
                  Many of you don’t use Facebook, and I wonder why? Is it because everyone knows its being watched? I got news for you by posting anywhere its being watched and who really gives a #&@&. If Facebook was so bad the why does Mac have it on this very page. I’ll tell you why it directs people to this site.. Dk is right its time to engage these MF’s and get in their face and make our voice heard that we the people will not take this BS laying down. And when that doesn’t work its time to vote and make each vote count..

                Bottom line,

                Obama care is going to collapse and what that will do is anybody’s guess. I would assume the regime cockroaches will scramble to save their own skins. I’m not much on buying the red flag scenario normally but I would assume they must do something to distract the millions of sheeple from the truth. This is one Mother of a mess that will not end well. Of course they are scrambling now because the idiots know what a failure this is going to be.

                  Here’s the God’s honest truth:

                  Obamacare was meant to fail because we are headed for something much much worse…the mark of the beast. They want to control every aspect, not just healthcare. That no one may buy or sell…have shelter or receive healthcare…the whole ball of wax.

                  cabinfever- you may be right, but if the timing is wrong, God my be doing with them what He did with the Axis powers in WWII and the USSR- allow it to get as bad as possible so that after it is defeated it will take decades before it comes back to that point- a generation or more will have learned the lessons and had their eyes and ears freshly open to Him. Look back 100 years ago. The Progressives of this nation were ready to take us there then, but the Great Depression and WWII hit a reset button. I have fought this idea, sort of wanting it to be the end of the world, so that the Kingdom of God will come, but this idea keeps coming back to me: there may be yet another reset before the last days truly kick off. So many are ready to die- but are we ready to live?

              Slightly off topic. They have prepared for something. I noticed that there are very few earthquakes within the last 24 hours(14)compared to what is normally posted 30-40. This might have something to do with the Largest Sunspot in this solar cycle facing directly at us with X flare capabilities. Maybe BI could look at this. One more thing, I think NASA lies alittle bit because they seem to be increasing the size of ISON whenever I read something. Now they gave its size in Radius instead of Diameter to make it sound smaller. 500 to 2000 meters Radius is Not small. Thats like up to 2.5 miles across which would hurt if it hit anywhere.

The feds make it clear every day through words and deeds what their intentions are toward us. There’s no question in my mind that DHS is preparing for war against us. Let them bring it on.

            The article someone posted a few articles back needs to go on the front page of this site as a matter of urgency.

            In several areas the homeless are already being sent to the US FEMA camps. If that’s not a wake up call that something wicked this way comes, I honestly do not know what is.

            Here in the UK fuel costs mean that more people will die this winter as poverty means many will lose the heat or eat balance. Our government can afford to be more subtle as we are unarmed & they’ve already had a public test run of the civil pinch points with the riots of 2010. The Olympics also gave them the excuse to install sufficient security for themselves. The raw figures show our public finances are in worse shape that those of Greece by some margin so we have no cause for complacency, especially given the tide of humanity arriving on our shores from regions of Europe where shtf already.

            Your military has been purged of those who respect the constitution and will not fire on it’s own citizens. It looks to me as if the same process is being completed with the domestic security forces. Sadly I think Dimitry Orlov was right – the West will not fare as well as Russia did during it’s own collapse.

Buying billions of rounds of hollow point ammo and then passing them and the assault rifles…er…”personal denfense weapons to every alphabet soup .gov agency means only one thing, they want to shoot people. They know to that events are reaching critical mass, some thing is going to break and very soon. They are determined to give only two choices: total submission or death.

            The amount of riot gear that was brought will be used to train officers only. They didn’t buy enough to do anything with . You have to fire so many rounds to pass the class. 120,000 live projectiles is nothing will go fast during training officers across the US. Once aging the amount brought is not enough to do a lot with when you are talking about a large city. I bet most large cities PD have that amount of riot gear on hand all ready if not more.

      Right, I feel much better now that we have been reassured that they are spending our money for no purpose whatsoever.
      This gives me so much more faith in the people we pay to look out for our interests so we have the time to focus on making the economy function and provide them with the
      lifestyles we can’t afford for ourselves. At least the 1/2 of the population that contribute by actually working for a living.

        The difference is that they print money and dump it into their accounts…no labor involved. We on the other hand have to labor for our money…then they steal it in a hundred different ways.

        Bottom line is they are able to buy the same damn things that we do with that money. Wouldn’t it be nice to just have $ dumped into your account with no labor incurred and purchase a fully stocked safe haven, precious metals, security, etc. because you sold your soul to fuckin satan.

      The government is increasingly oppressive and heavy handed. That explains some of the extra government employees and equipment. The government is also corrupt. It buys equipment from companies with politically connected lobbyists. At some point soon, corrupt and oppressive will merge, and then it’s on. Don’t go head to head with large heavily armed units. You’re the resistance not the opposing army. The government is too big to defeat. It must defeat itself. We can only help it towards it’s inevitable miserable end.

      This is a thanks to Pine4BetterDaze that posted this website on a former article on shtf….

      world dot tv/the cia manchurian candidate groomed by communists to destroy America

      It will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up!

      Just a small excerpt from that article:

      Zbigniew Brzezinski is running Obama and is his handler.

      A quote from Brzezinski make it clear he is preparing Obama to rule over a national police state surveillance grid in America….

      “The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up to date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrievial by the authorities.”

      The article goes on to state how the Communists, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn are intertwined with Obama:

      Larry Grathwold, a former FBI informant who penetrated the Weather Underground terrorist organization, testified in a court of law that Ayers and Dorn had direct involvement in a terrorist plot which killed a San Francisco police sergeant by a bomb planted by the Weather Underground terrorists.

      Grathwold also revealed that he ask Ayers, in a meeting of about 25 well to do Weathermen, most with advanced degrees from Ivy League Universities, what they planned to do when they achieved their goal of a communist takeover of the government. Grathwold stated that Ayers paused for a moment and then said that it was likely that 50 million Americans had to be re-educated in concentration camps located in the American Southwest and that about 25 million would have to be eliminated, meaning murdered.

      Allen Hulton, a 30 year veteran of the postal service provided a sworn affidavit to Maricopa, Arizona sheriff investigators. Led by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, in an effort to determine whether or not former foreign college student, Barack Obama, was eligible to be placed on the Arizona 2012 election ballot.


      Readers should take notice this is an affidavit, and as such, is formally considered evidence, not conjecture or heresay.

      My comment:

      Go to this website and you will see a blistering account of CIA involvement of Barack Obama’s rise to fame.

      Pertaining to the headline here at shtf; homeland security IS planning a takedown of America. Obama and his communist handlers are putting their plans in place.

        • Hunter says:


          ***(a redux somewhat, w/ apologies to Brandon Smith, I merely ‘souped’ it up a tiny bit).

          Without doubt, conservatives, especially (Christian) Constitutional conservatives, are the warrior class of American society. Always have been.
          Because the average conservative is far more likely to own firearms, have extensive tactical training/knowledge/proficiency with said weapons and possesses sufficient ammo to ‘feed’ them.
          Plus the gonads to use them.

          Ditto, he’s likely to have military experience and thus has less psychological fear of conflict; and he is more apt to take ‘INDEPENDENT’ physical action in the face of an immediate threat.

          This is the root of the enemy’s fear and worry!

          Because Constitutional conservatives are also more likely to fight based on honor, principal and heritage, rather than personal gain and therefore, less likely to get caught up in the madness of a false-flag, mindless mob activity or panic.

          They worry, because we are independent thinkers!

          Constitutional conservatives are the most substantial existing threat to the establishment hierarchy because, unlike dissenting groups of the past, we know exactly who the controlling hands are…behind the ongoing economic and social calamity.

          Thus they plot and scheme, all-the-more!

          Their response propagates the conservative culture being subjected to relentless attack by the establishment controllers, via MSM shills and using the Regime of President Barack Obama, as a middleman.
          Their goal, is to re-direct conservative rage towards the Democratic/Liberal left and away from the elite Talmudic hierarchy.

          Thus, the deliberately treasonous and criminal actions of the Out House regime, has become so absurd and so openly hostile and provocative lately, that one must surmise that, there’s is a deliberate strategy designed to provoke conservatives into off-hand but well deserved retaliation, against a puppet anti-GOD/anti-CHRIST, communist regime, rather than the real enemy behind the curtain and pulling the strings!

          I think they have ‘no clue’ what a prey species’ fear, while being hunted, is like!
          But one day, they’ll learn.

          Aim small, miss small.

      The NYC mayoral election is evidence of that in and of itself. Nanny Bloomboyg wasnt enough for them apparently. Goodgrief how many clues do you need?

      After some reflection on this I think the govt deserves a pass, lets face it they deny they’re prepping and most Americans deny there is any need to prep. Its a Shakespearian tradgedy happening right in front of your eyes. Shame on us.

      They have been training for the last 10 years that I know of.
      Before when we trained for anything it was for hostages being held.
      Only two times in my 20 years with one Department did we train for crowd control. this was at the end of my time with the first P.D. I worked for.
      The equipment that some of the law enforcement agencies have today is for nothing but crowd control.
      In Illinois if you work in Cairo Il. and something happens in Rockford you can go there and help with emergencies. Like floods or crowd control. This came into play after 9/11.
      You can’t B.S a BS’ser!
      Don’t take on a group of crowd control police you will loose. I know how to overwhelm them and some day I will tell you. But for now never go head to head with them they have all sorts of toy that they can play with.

            Today is the day Sir. Do tell. If, in the future, they change their tactics, we change ours. All good plans are fluid that way. Any useful information on this topic that keeps us from being cannon fodder is appreciated. In this way, an open dialogue will ensue, with more suggestions, alternate theories about applied tactics, and the pros and cons of force multipliers with regards to group size and positioning.

            I know about flanking, destabilization, bait and draw, spearhead, controlling point of contact, and evasive tactics. I do not however, know how to overwhelm, without drawing first blood or using artillery. We have practice drills against rouge elements for WROL situations, but against perceived authority, not so much.

            Any suggestion from the group, or from you is now in order. My position is clear. Crystal.

                I know what “not” to do. A frontal assault, unless used as a diversion, is a certain no go. Overwhelming a large group usually requires being part of a larger group, having superior positioning, or field of fire. Nationwide martial law means WROL to me, so game on. But prior to a major paradigm shift, tactics to disperse a riot control squad without bloodshed, or appearing to incite a violent response, is knowledge, or at least the implementation of such knowledge that I am still uncertain. Any thoughts?

                I agree with “know thy enemy”. Success is always location, location, location. Locate their weakness, whether be abode or abide.

        Government goal – GAIN MORE CONTROL. They are following the plan of ‘Cloward and Piven’ – overwhelm the system and let it crash. Afterward, they will replace it with the govt. ‘structure’ THEY want.

        Big Banks goal – ENRICH THEMSELVES.

        JP Morgan’s Food Stamp Empire
        - How the welfare state became a profit center.

        “According to the website of the Agriculture Department—which oversees the food stamp program—three companies administer the bulk of EBT card programs in 49 states (the state of Montana runs its own program) through multi-year contracts ranging from five to seven years.

        JP Morgan Electronic Financial Services, Inc. (a subsidiary of JP Morgan Chase), … has contracts with 24 states and two U.S. territories.”

        Just how lucrative are JP Morgan’s EBT state contracts? “…18 of the 24 states JP Morgan handles have been contracted to pay the bank up to $560,492,596.02 since 2004. Since 2007, Florida has been contracted to pay JP Morgan $90,351,202.22. Pennsylvania’s seven-year contract totaled $112,541,823.27. New York’s seven-year contract totaled $126,394,917.”

        Study: Food Stamps Most Rapidly Growing Welfare Program
        “Spending on advertising and outreach for food stamps by federal and state governments has also increased, now amounting to $41.3 million a year.”

        “States like Florida have hired ‘food stamp recruiters’, who have a quota of signing up 150 new recipients each month. Rhode Island hosts ‘SNAP-themed bingo games’, and the USDA tells its field offices to throw parties to get more people on their rolls.”

        SNAP is an “inefficient, fraud-ridden, and deeply troubled program, … with $858 million in direct fraud in 2012 and $2.2 billion a year in erroneous payments.”

      Unfortunately, the members of our goverment has lost creditability with the public because they’ve been bought out and some are left wing globalists who are actively seeking to bring forth a central world goverment, distribute wealth and bring down our form of national goverment. And they are working towards that goal.

      In any transition there is miscue’s,setbacks, disruptions of plans and resistance. That is what we are seeing here. Obama has said the old order is dead. George Bush in 1991 said that the time had come for a new world order. We are in that transition and most of us see the handwriting on the wall and DHS is preparing for that day when the public says no: And the goverment says Oh yes you will.

      To bring that about, I believe we could see terrorism on a level never seen before bloody and very deadly. Americans will cry for security and the goverment will provide, at a cost. The cost being personal freedoms.

      DHS is already becoming involved in cases(crimes) that are usually handled at state level, asking for information.
      If we do pray for our country, put people in office who has our, OUR best interest in their heart, our country will soon look like the Eastern Bloc of The Former Soviet Union.

      We need men and women of moral character who stand for goodness and things that are right. I fear that in the future our streets and cities will look like Beruit or Baghdad.

      God help us………..

      We thought our food stash was pretty good and then we figured that more was better. This past week made us realize we need more than we thought. We need food for about 5 years. Obamacare mess will tip us over and think next year will be very bad w/ only 2 months away. Government gone wild and will get wilder. Maybe more than 5 years but thats our new goal.
      Never thought it would be this bad this fast but I think its bad and getting worse and its here right now. Who has 5 years of food stored? Whose planning for 5 yrs?
      Beans, wheat, rice, dehydrated potatoes and bananas and apples, vitamins. We can grow a garden bigger but maybe get some dehydrated greens like kale or spinach.

        All right we will get more while we can. You need to get some wheat berries for sprouting and planting if you need to do that. I guess you dont have a grain mill but a neighbor might so worry about that later.

        How long does cornmeal last if it goes into jars that are vac sealed or bought in the cans? We dont have much but if itll store up for 5 yrs well get more,.

        Im now thinking of my printouts and info here and wondering if that could be used against us. Prepped to survive is looked at as being the enemy. Im thinking our books and stuff will incriminate us in todays gestapo tactics. Thinking hard about tossing quite a bit.

          There is no where to run or hide, but like Daniel and the other Hebrew youths with him, if we stand for God, then live or die we will find Him faithful.

          A nice old book I have speaks of sprouting and 7-day gardens (mature sprouts) as sources of veg should you need to live on what you store. I recommend having chia, alfalfa and radish seeds for sprouting, sunflower seeds and buckwheat groats for 7 day gardens (radish seed may work for this as well). Sunflower sprouts sold in stores are a good way to try them before hand and to get an idea of how to set up a 7-day garden since they are sold in trays with a support medium.

            How could I forget- mung bean sprouts too! Lentils can be sprouted as well, but I think most people eat those when they are only 2 days gone.

            Also, Ezekiel 4:9 bread recipes call for sprouted grains and legumes which God commanded Ezekiel to eat (as a prophecy about Jerusalem’s future neediness when under siege):
            “Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself.”

              We do like the sprouts and eat them. We have radish seeds and sprout those. Theyre a bit spicy and good. Thanks on the idea of mung beans. I have seen them for sale before but didnt know what theyd taste like but well get some of them. We grow greens in the winter and eat them when theyre small. City people say its micro green food.

              Ill tell the wife about the Ezekiel bread and well give it a try soon. Eagle flies on Friday so well be shopping and adding to storage again this weekend. Hope everyone else buys a little something to put away too.

      It is fsirly simple, regardless of what DHS says,always be guided by what you can see and know. We know they purchased tons of offensive and defensive equipment and we have seen the movement of MRAP’s throughout the country. We have also seen the generaql militarization of our police forces. Those are all facts, not assumptions. With the reduction of Food Stamps and the collapse of our remaining health care system thee is the real possibility that there will be public unrest. The looting of stores, such as Walmart, is a real possibility and so are demontrations opposing Obamacare. If thousands of people get their health care plans cancelled you can count on opposition. I would suggest those of us who are preparing to simply continue. What is the worst what can happen? You are prepared and nothing will happen – this time.

      Good morning ya’ll. My question to everyone here is what are you doing?
      Ok there is nothing to do that would have a viable effect on the direction our government is going. Prep learn know how & self reliance. And all you can do is try and do the right correct thing. Let it be ingrained to do right and when the time comes you wont be forced to make rash knee jerk or heart wrenching decisions. Be prepared for as many eventualities as you can. If your not contributing to the government coffers that’s a positive step. Barter, growing your own , making do, anything that eliminates the middle men and tax collection will help stop the redistribution from the making producers to the parasite takers. Become a producer and only deal with producers. If enough of us do this we can starve the beast. Vote if you wish but don’t be a denialist. Voting is futile. There hasnt been and never will be a viable political or ballot box solution.

        If voting is futile, then why are the Dems fighting voter ID’s so strenuously? It seems that any futility is due to their stranglehold on cheating ability in states with no ID requirement.

          Sigi dems fighting over voter ID? its just a posturing part of the dog and pony show. There isn’t any real difference between the political partys. George Bush Sr was the first president I heard publicly state Bring in a New World Order.

    51. thisTexan has had enough says:

      This is off topic but it does have to do with government intrusion in our lives.
      Have any of you received some form from the census bureau called the Community something or other? We got a call about it on Friday night at 9:10 but we had not received the form they were asking why we had not returned and after much back and forth I hung up on the caller after being threatened with a $5,000 fine for non compliance.
      Got another call this morning and this person said that we had not been delivered the form because we have ONLY POST OFFICE BOXES and no street delivery because of the government! She wanted me to fill it out on the phone for “about 70 minutes” and I said no. Then she said they could send me a code and I could fill it our online but I told her I did not use the computer.
      So I said “OR?” and she threatened the $5,000 fine.She said they were sending a letter demanding that the form be completed but not the form!
      Called my Senators and my Rep but their legislative assistants say I must fill it out. Told them it was a bad law and I wanted it changed. I have filled out the long form census form before and it is way too intrusive so I can only imagine what is on this one!
      What should I do?

        The census was 3 years ago. I don’t trust this- it sounds like a scam. Wait for them to send the demand letter and do some double checking. I’ll bet it doesn’t show up. You said that you filled out the long form of the census, if that was in 2010 that would have been enough. You could try calling 1-800-923-8282 to see if the US Census Bureau really are the people you’ve been talking to.

        Common law default if letter is legit, sounds like a scam. Make them prove that they have standing.

      Are you a senior because that could be your way out of that. Write a letter to your representative and tell them you are being harassed and threatened. If you are a senior tell them that too. I would like to know how this turns out and so could you keep us posted.

          OK- that makes it clear that they are doing smaller surveys after the big one in 2010. Should have known these guys wouldn’t be content to do it once every 10 years as was done previously.

        Yes I am a senior and so is my husband. I have called both Senators and my Representative and got calls back from all of them.The Reps office is sending me a release form so they can speak to the census bozos on my behalf and demand they send the form by Fed Ex or UPS since it cannot be mailed.
        My Postmaster returned them all to the census with the correct PO Boxes on them. She returned the 2010 Census forms also and they were eventually hand delivered to my town.
        I will keep my fellow SHTF friends posted on further developments. And maybe the need of bail money! LOL

      Yall really think that the average G.I. and cop will turn on his own fellow citizenry? After mom and pop chastise their soldier son about fighting with their fellow Americans, they will cease and desist. Also, there are organizations that will disobey orders from the government. There will be a very strong resistance and the guillotines will be manned, and working hard to eliminate the resistant 1% who will not willingly give up their ill gotten riches.

      All governments are fictitious or artificial persons existing only on paper after being created in the minds of real or natural persons, aka people, who then donate their life energy (taxes paid by wasting precious years of life to work/produce said revenue) to power such fiction. Only a true idiot would presume that anything artificial, especially a government, would have any honest, sincere concern for living people. Even if artificial intelligence exists, it’s limited logic can not allow it to feel emotion toward anything. Never expect anything that is not alive (artificial) to produce honor, compassion or anything remotely resembling good morals. Finally, never forget this is the cloak of darkness/deceit that power hungry cowards pretending to represent People while actually representing their own interests, hide behind. They are the future soft targets who will be held accountable for their evil/treasonous actions when the lines are finally drawn.
