The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is citing the Capitol unrest to declare a heightened threat of domestic terrorism through April, saying some “individuals” might be frustrated with the Biden administration.
The National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin issued Wednesday warns that “some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence.”
The DHS claims that “some” domestic violent extremists (DVE) “may be emboldened” by the January 6 “breach” of the US Capitol to “target elected officials and government facilities.”
In the accompanying press release, the DHS admits it “does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot” but that “violent riots have continued in recent days” – likely a reference to the ongoing violence in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington perpetrated by ‘Antifa’ activists, as no riots by supporters of the former President Donald Trump have materialized.
The report is from https://on.rt.com/b0gt . Note that there are no “specific, credible plots.”

What’s next? Domestic terrorists working on weapons of mass destruction?
We’ve seen this show before. The only difference is that it’s aimed at us and not brown people overseas. They’re trying for Red Scare III.

I posted it because that says it’s official government policy to be scared, not just some random blogger or pundit making noise.

For some reason when a piece of legislation or some sort of election came up, a high alert would be issued.
Of course Pelosi and Company said there would be an investigation, but Obama said, ‘We need to look forward, not back!’

How about really pissed that we were being lied to about stimulus relief, or unemployment benefits are running out for millions of people?

This is disgusting. FEAR! But, the government is afraid of it’s citizens, not just the right wing.

It’s almost official: In America being politically frustrated at our corrupt government makes you a terrorist now.
All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

That seems to be all our government knows – everyone is a suspected terrorist, without any comprehension as of why.
We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…

That does it! I’ll have to get 2 pit bulls and a gun before I
can go out on the street again. I’ll have to inquire where to
get bullet proof vests an a helmet like those our National
Guards wore against OWS kids.
