Rand Paul warns preppers that the government considers you terrorists.

In a warning from Rand Paul from the senate floor, where he speaks out against provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act, we learned today that the government considers having guns or storing more than 7 days of food a possible terrorist activity.

In the speech, Rand Paul warns Americans that, “Someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weather proofed, someone who has 7 days of food in their house” can be considered a potential terrorist by the federal government.

He warns that under new provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act, the federal government can lock you up indefinitely if you are suspected of activities that they consider terrorism related. That’s right the military will now have the power to lock up anyone, even American citizens, without due process and without being convicted of a crime.

      So you don´t find anything wrong with the dictatorial powers granted to Obama by the congress. And you must be one of those who applauded Gaddafi´s murder and the destruction of the Libyan nation by NATO/Obama, although he was innocent of the accusations invented against him? Just because he was a Dictator, like Obama is about to become?

      Chances are, the purveyors of the New World Order have already formulated their lists of who they think should survive whatever catastrophies may be on the horizon, and to prevent “the wrong people” from surviving, they got their puppet in the White House to sign an Executive Order to confiscate preppers means of surviving. All we can do is pray that Obama is removed from office, by whatever means, before he fully carries out the evil plans which his puppet masters are demanding.

    If you listen closely he is saying that under this new act one could be suspected to be a terrorist if you have guns and weather proof ammo, more than seven days of food, missing fingers. He is proposing to strike that from the bill. What I don’t know is if this is already in affect.

      If we are wise, we prepare for emergencies by growing gardens and canning/freezing the fruits of our labors and we hunt to provide and put meat on the table…. Our rights to provide and care for ourselves, our families, friends and community continues to be taken away… Certainly there must be Other terroistic habits: like being foreign or associated with foreigners and American bank accounts… We also need to check the illegal IDs that are being purchased and passed off as true… a quick glance says nothing…

    We should check to see which way our legislators voted. Even if they are in your party, if they voted to have the ability to imprison us because we store food and own guns we need to VOTE THEM OUT.

      The human invented gods have never protected anyone needing protection. Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, etc., did what they wanted and who protected them?
      Obama is doing what his group of hyenas wants; and the Americans have become un protected. This means that the Americans should act as soon as possible.

    16 Senate Democrats supported this:
    Sens. Bob Casey (Pa.), Kent Conrad (N.D.), Kay Hagan (N.C.), Daniel Inouye (Hawaii), Herb Kohl (Wis.), Mary Landrieu (La.), Carl Levin (Mich.), Joe Manchin (W. Va.), Clair McCaskill (Mo.), Robert Menendez (N.J.), Ben Nelson (Neb.), Mark Pryor (Ark.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.), Debbie Stabenow (Mich.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.)

    And almost every Republican Senator except for Rand Paul (KY) and Sen. Mark Kirk (IL) supported this.

    Gezze this is crazy in my home state they are telling us to Prep. in case of disasters and so on at least a 72 hour kit. Then our Government is trying to make us all Terorrists. I’m a county boy everyone I know has either guns, traps and they all have food for over 7 days or at least a couple days stored up. This is crazy. They need to wake up and realise they are making this a society of dependants…

      That’s the idea. A society of voters. If you make them dependent then you will be voted in.

      Bread & Circus to keep the sheeple happy and voting them back in. Worked for Rome!

      Your cowardly attitude is exactly what Obama is counting on; same as 6 million Jews assumed during WW2; bowed to the murderers and died in concentration camps. Wake up and say “At least I´ll take as many as I can with me”. Is the American Freedom Spirit dead?

        Executive Order superceeds Congress. Bush the 1st signed an EO in 92 that allowed GMO foodstuff in the food chain. I wrote my thesis on it.

    It didn’t die at all, it’s very much still alive and being pushed through. The defense authorization bill got one step closer to law Wednesday when the Senate voted 88-12 to limit debate. A final vote is expected sometime this week and it’s expected to pass

    This is horrible legislation. I wonder who Levin and McCain crawled into bed with to create this piece of sh&t…McCain tried this a year ago with a similar bill but it didn’t fly…now he’s back at it again. This guy is no American hero, you would think someone who was a POW would have more sense, but apparently this creep sold out, and is now trying to sell out the American people. This puts a whole new complexion on the police state argument, and like Judge Napolitano said, its only a matter of time before they start classifying other types and groups of people as “terrorists”. All you have to be is a suspect, a “suspected terrorist”, with no proof, no legal defense, no trial, just disappear into the black sites world where no one can help you. Chilling.

    Please keep us posted if this passes or not.

      Yes it passed The Senate 93 votes to 7.
      The Mainstream Media is reporting that the language was taken out of the bill but that is actually a big lie.
      Two more amendments that would have specifically stated U.S. citizens could not be held indefinitely by the military, were both defeated 45-55.
      In fact, Senators Levin and Graham both think that this power to use the military against American citizens will not be affected by the new language.

      People couldn´t believe what happened to the World Trade Center and they aren´t prepared to believe that their useless Congress has sold out America´s freedoms. And there exist guys who confess that the will do nothing when the FEDS “come looking for me to my house”, meaning “to jail me or to kill me”.
      The hope is that that kind of attitude should be an exception.

    mesquite… watch the video above…. He says that the prepper stuff is already on the books. This bill would have allow them to detain American citizens “suspected” of terrorist activities (He warns who the government already considers possible terrorists)
