Ohio Sheriff Sounds the Alarm After Meeting with FBI, Orders Every Cruiser to Carry an AR-15 and Extra Ammo

Share

“It’s not if they are going to attack, it’s just when they are.”

That’s what Ohio’s Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones said after attending the National Sheriffs’ Association Conference in Washington, D.C, held Feb. 3-6, according to the Journal-News. At the conference, FBI officials warned sheriffs from across the country about imminent terrorist attacks on the U.S.

“There are people already here who have come to this country who hate us and want to kill us,” Jones warned. He’s on a mission to make sure his department is prepared.

The new generation of terrorists is sophisticated. The FBI warned the sheriffs that terrorists could utilize cyberattacks to cripple power grids and cause train derailments. Cells of terrorists could target multiple areas of the country.

The sheriff’s office is “getting five cyberhack attempts a day by the Chinese, three times a day by the Iranians, and we got hacked two years ago by the Russians,” Jones said. “And that is not just us. I assume they are doing that all over the country.”

The Chinese have the U.S. outnumbered 50 to 1 in people working on cyberattacks and prevention, Jones said. “Their deal is to cause us disruption in our county. To cause chaos in our country, not like next week — now. From the red flags and chatter that they (FBI) are hearing.”

The FBI advised the sheriffs that people have already come across the border to “do harm to us … that they have never seen it this bad,” Jones continued. Not just a handful either. Thousands of terrorists want to cause chaos across the country. According to Jones, this includes national and local elections.

Is the United States in danger of a terror attack?

“They told us we need to be prepared to talk to local county election people to be prepared. They want us to lose faith in our government,” Jones warned.

To combat the danger, Jones urges state lawmakers to pass legislation in Ohio that allows felony charges to be filed against illegal immigrants, according to WXIX. Jones’s call to arms is similar to a measure in Texas.

Jones also is calling for a state cybersecurity czar to protect government organizations from being hacked by terrorists. He also sees the need for a task force to secure Ohio’s northern border because he says there is now an influx of drugs and weapons coming into America through the Canadian border. This is due to the manpower and resources moved to the southern border.

Terrorists won’t strike only in big cities, according to Jones. They’ll also target smaller cities and rural areas.

“The terrorists are here, we have already been told that, from 160 countries that want to do us harm,” Jones warned. “We have been told by the FBI that they are here and it is just a matter of time before they attack.”

“I am talking about people who want to attack Americans, and I would be a fool to think that is not going to happen. The national government can’t take care of it all. There is more local police than FBI. It all comes down to preparing for it,” Jones said.

Jones’ department is preparing. All cruisers will be equipped with AR-15s and extra ammo, according to WXIX. Hazmat training will also be expanded.

Local law enforcement, however, can’t do it alone. Jones announced that a training class for the public will be held in May, according to the Journal.

The course — “When Disaster Strikes: Prepare, Act, Survive” — will teach citizens in the community to prepare for disaster, survive it and, when necessary, participate in search and rescue operations after a natural disaster or terrorist attack.

Is your community prepared for terrorist attacks or other natural disasters? Are you?  Disasters are coming whether you and your community are prepared or not. It’s not if, it’s when.

Contact your local officials about “When Disaster Strikes” training or similar courses. If they aren’t already being offered, why not? Being prepared can make the difference between life and death.

It’s time to act. Now.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor

The Western Journal
