      Federal authorities are deeply concerned about the possibility of domestic terror and violence, including mass shootings, as the July Fourth holiday approaches and the summer season gets fully underway.

      A new Homeland Security bulletin obtained exclusively by ABC News warns that “violent extremists might seek to exploit easing COVID-19 restrictions, increased access to mass gatherings, and possible changes in levels of violence during the summer months to conduct attacks against a range of potential targets with little or no warning.”

      The intelligence document locks in on the nation returning to normalcy after the pandemic and notes that by the end of Wednesday, “34 states will have State of Emergency orders expire,” which means bans on mass gatherings and social distancing restrictions will be largely lifted.

      “In recent weeks, domestic violent extremists (DVEs) motivated by various violent ideologies have continued to advocate violence and plan attacks,” the bulletin said. “As of 16 June, racially or ethnically motivated violent extremist-white supremacists (RMVE-WSs) were sharing downloadable links to a publication discussing targeting mass gatherings, critical infrastructure, and law enforcement officers.”

      Hopefully not instigating it.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

      Be afraid! Homeland Security needs more money and to curtail your civil liberties in order to protect you! And who supports it at the time usually depends on whether they are cheering for the Blue or Red Teams.

      The government just pushes fear anymore.

      Notice it’s right-wing domestic terrorists, not the countries we’re still bombing in “self-defense.”

      Time to bring back Ashcroft’s color coded cards.

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
