Feds issue terrorism warning pre 9-11

Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro N. Mayorkas on Friday issued a bulletin that warns of a “heightened threat environment” across the United States through Nov. 11. 

“The threat environment to the Homeland is diverse and challenging, especially leading up to and following the 20th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks as well as religious holidays that could serve as catalyst for targeted violence,” the department wrote.

The warning says there are threats posed by “domestic terrorists, individuals and groups engaged in grievance-based violence, and those inspired or motivated by foreign terrorists and other malign foreign influences. These actors are increasingly exploiting online forums to influence and spread violent extremist narratives and promote violent activity.  This Bulletin builds on Bulletins issued in January and May by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and provides more information about the threat landscape we face for the coming months.”

At the same time, DHS has done little to secure the southern border, and illegal immigration is at an all-time high.

Terror threats DHS is warning about include these details directly from the bulletin:

  • Through the remainder of 2021, racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists (RMVEs) and anti-government/anti-authority violent extremists will remain a national threat priority for the United States.
  • These extremists may seek to exploit the emergence of Covid-19 variants by viewing the potential re-establishment of public health restrictions across the United States as a rationale to conduct attacks. 
  • Pandemic-related stressors have contributed to increased societal strains and tensions, driving several plots by domestic violent extremists, and they may contribute to more violence this year.
  • Leading up to the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula recently released its first English-language copy of Inspire magazine in over four years, which demonstrates that foreign terrorist organizations continue efforts to inspire U.S.-based individuals susceptible to violent extremist influences.
  • Historically, mass-casualty domestic violent extremist attacks linked to RMVEs have targeted houses of worship and crowded commercial facilities or gatherings. Some RMVEs advocate via online platforms for a race war and have stated that civil disorder provides opportunities to engage in violence in furtherance of ideological objectives.
  • The reopening of institutions, including schools, as well as several dates of religious significance over the next few months, could also provide increased targets of opportunity for violence though there are currently no credible or imminent threats identified to these locations.
  • Foreign and domestic threat actors, to include foreign intelligence services, international terrorist groups and domestic violent extremists, continue to introduce, amplify, and disseminate narratives online that promote violence, and have called for violence against elected officials, political representatives, government facilities, law enforcement, religious communities or commercial facilities, and perceived ideologically-opposed individuals.
  • There are also continued, non-specific calls for violence on multiple online platforms associated with DVE ideologies or conspiracy theories on perceived election fraud and alleged reinstatement, and responses to anticipated restrictions relating to the increasing Covid-19 cases.
  • Ideologically motivated violent extremists fueled by personal grievances and extremist ideological beliefs continue to derive inspiration and obtain operational guidance through the consumption of information shared in certain online communities. This includes information regarding the use of improvised explosive devices and small arms.
  • Violent extremists may use particular messaging platforms or techniques to obscure operational indicators that provide specific warning of a pending act of violence.
  • Law enforcement have expressed concerns that the broader sharing of false narratives and conspiracy theories will gain traction in mainstream environments, resulting in individuals or small groups embracing violent tactics to achieve their desired objectives.
  • With a diverse array of threats, DHS is concerned that increased outbreaks of violence in some locations, as well as targeted attacks against law enforcement, may strain local resources.
  • Nation-state adversaries have increased efforts to sow discord. For example, Russian, Chinese and Iranian government-linked media outlets have repeatedly amplified conspiracy theories concerning the origins of Covid-19 and effectiveness of vaccines; in some cases, amplifying calls for violence targeting persons of Asian descent.

   The bulletin advises that DHS will be looking for “false narratives” online and “disinformation”:

  • DHS will continue to identify and evaluate calls for violence, including online activity associated with the spread of disinformation, conspiracy theories, and false narratives, by known or suspected threat actors and provide updated information, as necessary.
  • DHS continues to encourage the public to maintain awareness of the evolving threat environment and report suspicious activity.
  • DHS is coordinating with state and local law enforcement and public safety partners to maintain situational awareness of potential violence in their jurisdictions and maintain open lines of communication with federal partners.
  • DHS is also advancing authoritative sources of information to debunk and, when possible, preempt false narratives and intentional disinformation, and providing educational materials to promote resilience to the risks associated with interacting with and spreading disinformation, conspiracy theories and false narratives. 
  • More broadly, DHS remains committed to identifying and preventing terrorism and targeted violence while protecting the privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties of all persons.

“We are committed to ensuring every initiative undertaken by DHS in response to the threat is consistent with privacy protections, civil rights and civil liberties, First Amendment-protected rights, and other applicable laws,”  the secretary wrote.

DHS and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will continue coordinating with state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement and public safety partners to ensure situational awareness of potential violence in their jurisdictions and will maintain open lines of communication with federal partners. 

“DHS encourages the public to remain aware of the evolving threat environment and report suspicious activity to law enforcement officials,” the department said.

  • For those who still don’t get it, the feds are telling you they are going to continue to create false-flag events in an effort to demonize right leaning individuals, especially Trump supporters. An example is what they did at the Capitol on January 6th. I hope everyone recognizes this by now, sheesh.
    As they crank up the domestic tension by using covid or other means, they are baiting everyone to argue or fight each other. They will use their paid villains in ANTIFA and other terrorist groups to start tearing apart our cities and country again if needed.
    The goal is to create chaos and division to weaken the middle class, so they can offer the solution. Problem, reaction, solution. They create the problem, everyone reacts poorly, then the offer the solution. More government.
    Why you ask? To get your attention away from the real issue. The audits. Everyone knows the 2020 election was stolen, and our country has suffered a hostile takeover by globalists and their supporters in our government. Keep your eye on the ball as things heat up with their false-flags.
    Do as President Trump asked and stay peaceful. Simple as that. Be careful attending events the feds can use to create false-flags against conservatives. Sit back, chill out, and don’t give them the events they need right now. Go buy what you need now, and be prepared to relax for a bit while they try and create the chaos they so desperately need. I hope you all still have enough TP after last time though. Wow…

    • WEll said Robert! Thank you.

    • That sounds like reporting from one of those independent sites that people who follow Qanon know about.
      I wouldn’t doubt part of it is true.
      But also earlier today, Sunday 15th, Taliban terrorists are showing they are recharged and charged Kabul just before MRAK released this update warning us about heightened terrorism attacks domestically and internationally.

      Those poor people. I think Islam isn’t working out for them. Hahaha

  • DHS could have saved a lot of typing and gotten their core message through much more succinctly by just writing: “Free speech is a threat to our democracy!”
    That’s essentially what our federal government is telling us these days.

    • Yes! Absolutely PJ.

  • Boy, what a load of bovine excrement Mayorkas has assembled in this announcement.

  • Gotta keep pumping that fear!
    .
    “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to ‘safety’) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”

  • The sky is falling tomorrow at noon..

  • Better get ahold of the Bush’s, Cheneys and the good people at the Lincoln Project and have the start rallying the war machine again.

  • The stage is set, actors awaiting their cues…
    So, questioning an election that has issues and questions of it’s validity is now an offense?
    There is talk of interstate checkpoints that remind me of circa 1980’s spy movies.
    If the election was secure, why wouldn’t everyone say, ” Have a look, nothing to see here..”?

    My sister just had her FB account shut down for voicing opinions about the audits and those that will soon have the justice system bearing down on them.
    I wonder why the United States of America would trust any foreign country to produce voting machines for our elections…..This is The Democracy that entire world watches and uses as a guide. We SET the standard.
    Everyone should be asking about the election.
    Do you even see how quickly all the work of the previous Administration was undone?
    If only to look at the economic recovery and more specifically unemployment across the board is enough for any reasonable person to ask, “WHY?”.

  • God Bless America! Land that we love!

  • This heightened domestic terrorism acts is the consequence of being an Atheist, telling people as young as 1 years old they originate from a cell clump, have no real good reason and purpose being here, and then they die into nothingness. Then child grows up having no value for Life becomes a monster to themselves, destroying their own self, to destroying others around them.

    No amount of terrorism and virus fears am I going to live my life in fear.

  • They speak with forked tongue.
    How about some nice blankets for you and your families because we love you.

  • Just being a red blooded, Bible believing, Constitutional American is now officially a Terrorist to the tyrannical Imperial Federal Government. The USA no longer exists, it is now officially the Fourth Reich ruled by a dementia addled Chinese Puppet.

  • If this doesn’t scare everyone then you’re lost. This propaganda is a set up for the complete takeover of American. We have lost free speech and our right to peaceful protest. The Chinese have won if we accept this crap. If you speak out against the government they are coming for you. Either we band together and say no or we march into their concentration camps. Alaska has a huge fema camp ready for us who want freedom.

  • It would seem an easy thing to cancel their social media communication. Heck we shut up the President of the US

  • At this point, do we actually believe anything from these people anymore. #manmadevirus #falseflag #problemreactionsolution #lookupHegelianDialectic

  • Yeah, no kidding! With the flood of democrat supported illegals pouring across our southern border from who knows where. My dog could have predicted this.

  • Sounds like DHS is getting us ready for a “big event” and their follow up actions soon.
    Everyone check their emergency gear. It probably won’t be fun.

  • This administration is off the charts insane.
    We have lost our way as a Nation.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.-John Adams

  • This is like a Liberal Democrat “wish list.” If you don’t subscribe to their ideologies you are a domestic threat. Question COVID? You’re a terrorist. Don’t subscribe to all their narratives and agendas? You’re a terrorist and a threat. They’re still bringing up violence against Asians which literally died on the vine. The only violence was committed by a certain ethnic group which didn’t fit the agenda. But strangely, they want people to call law enforcement, aren’t they trying to defund them?

  • Why dont they just say the threat is from pro-Constitutional Republic, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-freedom citizens that don’t like fascism.

    • Defend the construction against foreign and DOMESTIC threats.

      • Are you implying that “pro-Constitutional Republic, pro-Bill of Rights, pro-freedom citizens” are a domestic threat?
        .
        Seriously. Supporting and respecting the highest law in the land is now some kind of domestic terrorism in your eyes? Please, please…. PLEASE tell me I am wrong, and I misread your comment.

        • You did as usual. DOMESTIC terrorist identified by the like of King, X, BLM, and red necks such as yourself.

          • Thanks for clarifying. It just seemed an interesting response to the comment.
            .
            And, I was born way too far north to wear the title redneck. Although, I do thank you for including it in your list.

  • However bogus, falseflag and full of pure BS it is I’m sure will result in an attempted totalitarian lockdown of epic proportions until said “issue” can be “fixed”.

  • Shut down the border and build a wall you idiot! It worked for Pelosi in January.

  • The national security agencies are more worried about your tweets about vaccines than what the Taliban is up to when we have troops in harm’s way

  • Establishment Republicans let this happen. They might not be around too long because they were stupid enough to take the vaccine

  • “At the same time, DHS has done little to secure the southern border”:
    The events at the southern border is the largest multi national organized mass immigration project in history. It is worse than simply ordering the CBP and ICE to cease and desist from enforcing federal statutes. In terms of sheer numbers it exceeds the Stalinist era forced relocation of ethnic minorities who cooperated with the German invaders of Soviet occupied territories.
    Massive federal resources are being used directly, including use of military infrastructure, and funding outsourced NGOs to transport, house and feed hundreds of thousands, YTD 1 million+ known illegal migrants. The ratio of CBP at the border contacted immigrants is estimated at 1 in 10.
    It is likely there are several million new foreign nationals during the first 8 months of 2021, along with the 20 million plus estimated during 2020 already here.
    The fact that it is known that upwards of 40% of these persons carry or are ill with several variants of SARS-2 and they are distributed throughout the US, our own federal government is the largest “super spreader” on earth. The same government that researched, developed, funded and outsourced the creation of SARS-2, then created irrational fear and ineffective neurotic behavior amongst the population in response to the inevitable accidental or purposeful release of the virus from our #1 enemy, the CCP.
    There is no screening of the millions entering our country, and there is a percentage who are criminals. As Alaska has the benefit of physical separation from the contiguous states, Dunleavy must take steps to minimize the ability of NGOs from transporting and housing these foreign nationals, and prevent employers and any state agency from mandated trial vaccine use or mask use in our state. No action from the Governor is equivalent to supporting the policies being weaponized against our liberties, public health, public safety and prosperity.

  • Clues to watch for:
    .
    Referring to the constitution
    Clinging to guns and religion
    Speaking of freedom and liberty
    Not masking
    Not vaxxed
    Calling it chinaFlu
    Displaying the US flag
    Claiming Trump won
    Saying “swamp” and “deep state”
    etc.

  • You gotta admit, these Communists are pretty clever. They are doing what they accuse others of doing. They also know what resistance to their take over looks like and theyhave a plan to capture those who resist. If a bunch of goat herders in Afghanistan can drive out the people who wrote this above, there may still be a chance for the Constitution.

  • Mass censorship.
    Govt propoganda supported by MSM and pop culture.
    Wide open borders.
    Machevellian tactics to sow division in the populace.
    Deliberate usurpation of our Constitutional liberties.
    Watch for the False Flag – it is coming – they are going to go all in.
    It’s come time for the country to split up – living together is untenable at this point.

  • DHS just does what the Southern Poverty Law Center tells them to do. It is an example of “interest group capture” in the federal government.

  • The one positive thing that DHS could do to address this perceived problem, they refuse to do! CLOSE THE BORDER! The rest is just spin, smoke and mirrors to justify their illegal use of force in upcoming months. We The People are either going to put a stop to this legally and politically or Civil War will be the result.

  • …”In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”…

  • Thanks for sharing. These commie spooks have no shame.

  • This is what you voted for America

    • What vote? Presidents are selected not elected and it’s been that way for a long time, but at least now people see the truth. Tyranny doesn’t start overnight, this has been decades in the making. The FEMA camps were built under Reagan in secret until they were finally made public under Clinton in the 1990s. So if Americans want to point blame for this we need only to look in the mirror. After all, how many bowed down to the patriot act after 9/11 saying, “I have nothing to hide,” and then made fun of anyone who tried to warn and sound the alarm? Laziness did this to America because no one ever wants to get involved, they just want to cast a vote and have someone else do the work to fix their problems so they can go to sleep and drink their beer and watch their TVs and online porn.

  • Department of homeland security, brought to you by the republicans.

    • No, brought to America by bin laden.

  • I knew when the Bush regime created DHS that it would be turned inward on Americans as an internal political security apparatus. Less than 20 years later, here we are.

    • All those cameras inside of ATMs and on the intersection traffic lights that are plugged into the supercomputers in Utah have saved lives. DHS is not going to tell you every time they stopped a terrorist organization from killing people. Listening in on your phone calls and tracking positive Hits on phone numbers have saved lives. I just hope we’re good enough next time around. Those terrorists have a whole plane full of Obama money to play with and Iran China and Russia to keep them supplied and to share intelligence with. They are 20 years smarter than they were last time. I hope people are 20 years tougher and 20 years more vigilant than they once were.
