Ron DeSantis was furious over Joe Biden’s scheme to snoop on Americans who own Bibles and shop at Bass Pro

Jan 26, 2024

Ron DeSantis spent the past several months directing most of his fire towards his Republican opponents.

But DeSantis is out of the Presidential race and is now training his sights on Joe Biden.

And Ron DeSantis was furious over Joe Biden’s scheme to snoop on Americans who own Bibles and shop at Bass Pro.

House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) recently revealed how Joe Biden’s weaponized Justice Department and FBI had financial institutions give them a list of any customer who completed a transaction that used terms like “MAGA” or “TRUMP.”

In a post on X, Jordan posted a copy of a letter he sent to former Director of the Treasury Department’s office of Stakeholder Integration and Engagement in the Strategic Operations Division of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) Noah Bishoff.

“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,” Jordan wrote.

According to Jordan’s letter, FinCEN distributed materials to financial institutions following the events on January 6 that outlined the “typologies” of “various persons of interest.”

FinCEN also provided the banks with a list of search terms to flag as well as Merchant Category Codes (MCCs) to help identify the “persons of interest.”

The banks were told to search transactions on Zelle or other platforms that included “transportation charges, such as bus tickets, rental cars, or plane tickets for travel to areas with no apparent purpose,” as well as “the purchase of books — including religious texts — and subscriptions to other media containing extremist views.”

Gun owners were specifically targeted by using terms like “Cabela’s,” “Dick’s Sporting Goods,” and “Bass Pro.”

“We now know the federal government flagged terms like ‘MAGA’ and ‘TRUMP,’ to financial institutions if Americans completed transactions using those terms,” Jordan wrote above his letter. 

He continued, “What was also flagged? If you bought a religious text, like a BIBLE, or shopped at Bass Pro Shop.”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded to Jordan’s bombshell revelation with outrage in a post on social media.

“This is absurd,” DeSantis wrote on X in a post where he shared an article about Biden snooping on financial transactions. “The federal government thinks you might be an extremist if you purchase a Bible, buy a plane ticket, or shop at Bass Pro Shops.”

“Where is the accountability?” DeSantis asked.

Joe Biden and the Democrats are hell-bent on stopping Donald Trump and punishing his more than 70 million supporters.

And Jim Jordan’s bombshell post revealed the depths the Biden administration is willing to go to take down Donald Trump and end his America First movement.
