Doomsday Prepper Raided By FBI For Criticizing Obama

Doomsday Prepper Raided By FBI For Criticizing Obama

Sharpsburg, MD – A “Doomsday Prepper” was raided by the FBI after criticizing President Obama. The prepper became a target for Maryland police and the FBI after 46-year-old Terry Porter told an undercover cop that he was “very irritated” about Barack Obama’s re-election. An anonymous tip had led to the investigation, which eventually resulted in the prepper’s home being raided by 150 armed officers, helicopters, SWAT crews, armored vehicles and even excavation equipment.

According to Infowars.com, the anonymous tip claimed Terry Porter was “getting crazier and crazier” because he was stockpiling “10 to 15 machine gun-style firearms” at his home in Sharpsburg where he had built an underground bomb shelter and installed surveillance cameras. An undercover officer pretended to be a potential customer for Porter’s welding business. Porter openly admitted to being a doomsday prepper, and criticized Obama during the conversation.

While this was not illegal, the investigation led police to the discovery that Porter had a 1992 felony drug conviction and was therefore barred from owning firearms. This discovery led to the large scale raid which resulted in much ado about nothing. The FBI recovered only “four shotguns, a .30-30-caliber rifle and two .22-caliber rifles” with no machine guns in sight. The prepper was not even home at the time.

A massive manhunt ensued, with multiple special response units combing the area. Terry Porter apparently heard about the FBI raid since he turned himself in the next morning at Hagerstown Barrack.

The cost and the scope of this massive operation is being questioned by some in the media. Porter’s possession of guns merely provided a justification for the police raid and came to light only after authorities began to investigate him over his anti-Obama statements.

“The fact that 20 years before he had a drug conviction enabled the FBI to carry out a raid they would have never even considered if it wasn’t for the fact that they knew that the man was preparing and was distrustful of the government,” said the Intel Hub. “To say the raid was simply for illegal possession of firearms is to ignore all the facts of this horrific story.”

Porter’s neighbors were angry that the government wasted their time with this raid, calling it “a big waste of taxpayer money.” Some claimed that they “would feel safe leaving his kids with the man.” Porter had not broken any laws in the 20 years since the drug conviction and some think the response was due only to Porter being a Doomsday Prepper.

“It was ridiculous for (the man), who would not hurt another person for anything,” said 35-year-old Heather Hamilton who lived around the corner from Porter. “Unless you would attack him, he’s not going to go after anyone.”

Even as Doomsday Preppers become more accepted by the general public following Hurricane Sandy, many other Doomsday Preppers have apparently been under extra scrutiny by the Obama administration. The FBI has reportedly characterized bulk food buying as a “potential terrorist activity.” One prepper featured in National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers show was declared “mentally defective” and put on an FBI list that stripped him of his second amendment rights just because he went in for a doctor’s visit for chest pains.

What do you think about this Doomsday Prepper being raided by the FBI? Did they simply overreact to a criticism of President Obama or do you think this an orchestrated effort by the Federal government to crack down on organized dissenters?

    I think you are trying to twist a few mistakes by the fbi into far more than it really was. he was arrested for having guns when he was far from allowed to have them. it has nothing to do with people saying shit against obama. the netirety of fox news would have been imprisoned if the government was affected by criticism to their president.
    and guess what? bulk food buying Can be considered suspicious for terrorist activity. still this man being a prepper had nothing to do with his arrest. the fbi simply thought he was more well armed than he really was, and the fact he was not allowed t own any fire arms. more than likely one of those people in his community is the real culprit here, and was the one who contacted the fbi.

    give out all the facts, don't withold the ones that would make your claims dismissible. we did not have people beign arrested for sneezing during these last four years, why would it start now?

    Had pretty much same thing happen to me here in Vidor,TX. Made a joke on Facebook and was investigated for months which showed them I wasn't a danger. Yet the FBi and ATF raided me only to tell me I hadn't broke any laws but to watch what I say. The Feds are jokes and respect no one. They wonder why their offices were attacked in OKC. They really shouldn't.

  3. Rizzle Myshizzle

    Listen to chad LeDouxm he's twice as cool as obama and bush.. I guess that just makes him a huge faggot and public enemy..

    Let's all toast and throw shit at his parents house because he's probably not old enough to pay his own bills.

    it makes me feel good too….. Cheers.

    You know, I know the history of government oppression but I still don't understand why someone would blow up a building killing hundreds of innocent men, women and children.

  5. Michael Snook

    They shouldn't have raided him , but he should've kept his mouth shut. Quit offering so much information.

  6. Marguerite Swartz

    We shouldn't need to watch what we say. He didn't threaten to hurt the president, he only said he wasn't happy obama got re-elected. Once we start fearing that words like that can get us locked up we have lost our freedom.

    "the investigation led police to the discovery that Porter had a 1992 felony drug conviction and was therefore barred from owning firearms". "The FBI recovered <only?> four shotguns, a.30-30-caliber rifle and two.22-caliber rifles.". This one man was not singled out for "benevolent" behavior, but because he was behaving in a manner that was causing someone alarm, and I suspect the right-wing has singled out this story to spin into an example of "despotism" (always poking at a hornet's nest; can't stand on facts, so spin, spin, spin).l He was, in any event, armed, thus, breaking the law. Becky Hobbs: "Just seems like more communist tendencies to me." LOL. Becky Hobbs obviously does not know what "communism" is.

    "extra scrutiny by the Obama administration" ha ha ha! I am sure the "administration" was acutely aware of this man and ordered the FBI to raid. Rubish! This author is an instigator who is the problem, not part of the solution to stop this atmosphere of fear and conspiracy.

  9. Michael Snook

    He didn't threaten Obama . The weapons weren't the reason for the investigation . One neighbor complained . The rest of them didn't have a problem with him . I wonder , was it really a neighbor , or just an anti-gun radical ? This isn't the first story I've heard like this , where someone has filed a false complaint against a gun owner . There is a push to let felons have the right to vote again , so shouldn't they be allowed to own a firearm again ? Sounds communistic to me . I still say his big mistake was telling anyone he was a prepper .

    Why do people label things that have nothing to do with communism or socialism with those labels? Because they do not know what communism and socialism are. They just think "bad", must be communism or socialism. Educate yourselves, else your ingnorance shows.

    DEATH TO the Non-American Obamination and his / its whole cabinet AND anyone that would follow a false identified paper worked (that Includes Social Security cards, job history, and schooling of higher learning "college" ) anyone that Follows the Obamination can be removed from office and the Country ( unless they change side and become Anti-Obamination people. He/ it is NOT worthy od even calling a human. Yet, you foolish people re-voted him back in what was the "white house" now renamed "the Dark house" or "the black House" until this thing is gone. Prep I say everyone should if the means getting guns fine with me but kept away from sight and mind only in a place of a safe haven. if a mob come to raid you just for food and you have a Family they can take the food and safe haven over my dead body. I know convicts can't have firearms BUT I do know this a Bow and arrows a cross bow and a black power weapons Are not "Firearms". they are weapons yes But, not Firearms. The Bottom line is Anything can happen and Normally does.

    It doesn't surprise me. Poor decisions made by the government seems to be part of this day and age. Just look at the big bailouts. I thought this was the USA, we do have the freedom of speech!

  13. Bill Davis

    Aparently neither do you! The latest healthcare bill is proof enough for your kind who has little or no respect for the constitution. Love the Profile pic "NOT!" Don't forget that the 2nd amendment has been protecting non-patroits such as yourself since ratification. But hey who needs rights? Dumb ass!!!

  14. James Jeffreys

    This violation of basic rights and enormous waste of public resources makes communism look like anarchy! Why on earth is it wrong to criticise an opposing political party in a democratic country? Isn't that the point? Or am I missing something here? I'd love to say only in America, but this type of big brother lunacy is spreading through the west like wild fire!

  15. Amber Wise

    This is obsurd! N what they did to this gentlemen is wrong!!! What is happening to our nation!?!? Seriously????!!!!!

  16. Gregory Romeu

    I took an oath to PROTECT and DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION of The UNITED STATES, this includes every American cirtizen's 1st Amendment right to FREE SPEECH! NOT to defend the jackass-in-chief! Another mere fact, Marines take their oaths to their graves!

  17. Gregory Romeu

    Although we took an oath to protect and defend The Constitution form ALL enemies, foreign and domestic, it even means we protect the rights of the stupid people as well. Damn the luck!

    Michael Snook In some states, Felons are allowed to own single shot muzzle-loaders, as well, they are allowed to regain their voting privledges if the complete an equal amount of GOOD TIME after their release from prison. In other words if they did 10 years for a felony, they can regain voting privledge if the complete 10 years of NO INFRACTIONS of any kind.

  19. Gregory Romeu

    Claudia Joanne Renshaw it IS a form of communism when you violate your country's Constitution and act out against THE PEOPLE without DUE PROCESS or DUE CAUSE! It's also called TYRANNY! Oh-Butthead IS a socialist, you may not recognize it because you are too busy riding unicorns and looking for rainbows! You whack-job!

    Reminds me of that band arrested in Russia for writing lyrics against President Putin. Crazy.

    when a socialist shitbag has no excuses they blame bush.

    chad: their "offices were attacked in OKC" because they did it themselves. I highly suggest you do some research into the matter (at least watch the documentary "A Noble Lie" to find out the facts that have been kept hidden from the public. Their goal was to get passed an anti-terrorism (anti-freedom) legislation that was stalled in Congress since the first bombing of the World Trade Center didn't do the trick. They chose the Murrah building because it was the only one with a day care and they thought the pictures of the dead children on the front pages of the newspapers would finally do the trick and get the legislation passed. They were right.
    The horrors of what the secret government does is almost beyond comprehension but you have to accept what the evidence shows, not matter how horrific.
