DHS Publishes an Unhinged Terror Threat Advisory

Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security has gone to nearly comical lengths to target his political enemies.

We wish these Nervous Nellies would make up their minds. Ever since Scranton Joe took office, the Biden administration has been telling us to be on the lookout for all those highly elusive white supremacists who are, of course, the sum and source of our nation’s ills. That and global warming climate change.

But now, instead of trying to root out the handful of lactose-intolerant methane-dispensing neo-Nazis in our midst, they’re telling us that the real threat is “an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors.”

So it’s the MDM, OK? And that’s coming straight from the National Terror Advisory System within Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security. The chilling Terror advisory continues:

These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence. Mass casualty attacks and other acts of targeted violence conducted by lone offenders and small groups acting in furtherance of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances pose an ongoing threat to the nation.

Your tax dollars at work.

There’s plenty more within the document, and it’s worth a quick review, if only to better understand how feeble-minded leftists work. For example, the first bullet point within the “key factors” section of the document says: “There is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19. Grievances associated with these themes inspired violent extremist attacks during 2021.”

So if you’re not convinced that ol’ Basement Joe Biden got all 81 million of those votes on the up-and-up, and if you think all these COVID restrictions have become less and less about public health and more and more about power and control, well, you’re a threat.

But it’s not just you, and not just the rest of our loyal readership. Apparently, Texas Republican Congressman Troy Nehls is also a threat. Nehls has been a vocal critic of Nancy Pelosi’s sham J6 Committee, otherwise known as the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, and he put out a press release Tuesday saying that “a USCP officer entered his office and took a photo of private congressional material protected by the Speech and Debate Clause, Article I Section 6 of the U.S. Constitution.”

“Quite honestly, I’m being targeted right now,” Nehls told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Tuesday night. “And I believe that Nancy Pelosi is weaponizing the U.S. Capitol Police to investigate me, to try to silence me, intimidate me, and quite honestly, to destroy me.”

Nehls has asked the Capitol Police Inspector General to conduct a formal investigation into the incident, and his request has been accepted. “Capitol Police leadership have put a target on my back,” he says, “but my work in exposing the security failures on January 6th, the death of Ms. [Ashli] Babbitt, and the sham investigation into the events of January 6th will not be deterred.”

Elsewhere, several Republicans have signed a letter to Pelosi and House Administration Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren calling on them to investigate the reports of Capitol Police “monitoring” lawmakers and citizens. “If these reports are true,” said Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs, “that the Capitol Police force is actively looking for and reviewing private information, then this is a gross violation of American civil liberties and an abuse of power.”

If all this Democrat focus on weaponizing government to attack political opponents weren’t such a threat to our constitutional order and our system of checks and balances, it’d be a real hoot.
