Are You A Potential Active Shooter? The Feds Think So!

The federal government had financial institutions flag terms like “MAGA” & “TRUMP” to label American citizens as potential ACTIVE SHOOTERS if transactions were made using these terms.

Buying religious texts, like a BIBLE, or shopping at Bass Pro Shop, Dick’s or Cabela’s was also flagged.

The Epoc Times Writes

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN)—the U.S. Treasury Department’s financial crime-fighting unit—is being accused of urging banks to comb through the private transactions of customers using terms such as “MAGA” and “Trump” following events on Jan. 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) leveled the accusation in a letter to former FinCEN division director Noah Bishoff, in what the lawmaker described as “pervasive financial surveillance” carried out at the request of law enforcement that raises doubts about Treasury’s “respect for fundamental civil liberties.”

Specifically, the search terms included words such as “MAGA” (short for former President Donald Trump’s signature slogan, “Make America Great Again”) and “Trump,” as well as the purchase of religious texts and subscriptions to media outlets containing “extremist views.”

“According to this analysis, FinCEN warned financial institutions of ‘extremism’ indicators that include ‘transportation charges, such as bus tickets, rental cars, or plane tickets, for travel to areas with no apparent purpose,’ or ‘the purchase of books (including religious texts) and subscriptions to other media containing extremist views,’” Mr. Jordan wrote.

“In other words, FinCEN urged large financial institutions to comb through the private transactions of their customers for suspicious charges on the basis of protected political and religious expression,” the lawmaker charged.

FinSEC allegedly distributed slides that explain how financial institutions can use merchant category codes (MCCs) to identify customers whose transactions may reflect an association with potential homegrown violent extremists or active shooters.

The list of query items to detect such customers includes the MCC codes associated with “small arms” (code 3484) and “sporting and recreational goods and supplies” (code 5091).

The slides also include a list of keywords such as “Cabela’s” and “Dick’s Sporting Goods,” both businesses where people can readily purchase a firearm.

“Despite these transactions having no apparent criminal nexus—and, in fact, relate to Americans exercising their Second Amendment rights—FinCEN seems to have adopted a characterization of these Americans as potential threat actors,” Mr. Jordan wrote.

“This kind of pervasive financial surveillance, carried out in coordination with and at the request of federal law enforcement, into Americans’ private transactions is alarming and raises serious doubts about FinCEN’s respect for fundamental civil liberties.”
