Domestic terrorism has been the trumped up theme of the Dems and the Biden administration since the Capitol riot on January 6. The potential threat of domestic terrorists, a.k.a. Trump supporters, has been the supposed cause of our nation’s capitol resembling China more than America with troops and fences galore. In fact, it has been a very effective tool of the Dems to shut down the opposition since Biden took office.
A ridiculous number of National Guard troops have been in Washington DC since January 6 under the guise of domestic terrorist threats that never panned out. We were warned of domestic terrorist attacks across the country on Inauguration day and again in February when some conspiracy nut said Trump would magically take office. None of these attacks occured leaving one to ponder is there really even a threat.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is sticking to the threat narrative as it announced Wednesday that it is considering expanding efforts to monitor possible domestic terrorism threats through surveillance of travel patterns of individuals.
“Domestic violent extremism poses the most lethal, persistent terrorism-related threat to our homeland today. DHS is committed to improving security and is reviewing options for enhancing screening and vetting protocols and travel pattern analyzes, consistent with privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties,” a DHS spokesperson told Reuters.
Precise details were unclear for how the DHS is going to step up screening of domestic travelers for possible extremist ties or intentions. The Biden administration has emphasized in recent weeks the threat that homegrown, violent individuals, including white supremacists, present to the country.

Department of Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas told lawmakers this month that domestic violent extremism is the “greatest threat” to the United States.
U.S. intelligence agencies also warned in a report that domestic violent extremists, or DVEs “motivated by a range of ideologies” pose an elevated threat in the United States in 2021, including “lone offenders,” who pose significant challenges, “because of their capacity for independent radicalization to violence, ability to mobilize discretely, and access to firearms.”
Founded after the Sept. 11 attacks, the vast, 240,000 employee DHS is tasked with everything from immigration policy to airport security.
DHS’s moves, first reported by Politico, are likely to attract skepticism from the FBI, which is principally responsible for tracking and investigating domestic terrorism threats and cases, and from members of Congress and civil libertarians concerned about government spying.
A spokesperson for the Justice Department referred requests for comment to the FBI, which declined to comment.
Two sources familiar with Congressional scrutiny of intelligence agencies said that key Congressional oversight officials had not been informed of DHS’s plans to expand domestic counter-terrorism surveillance.
The Dems have gone to great lengths to intimate that domestic terrorists are all Trump supporters. Given their “sweeping agendas” to transform America into some progressive socialist country it is no wonder they are in fear of retaliation from the right who really doesn’t want to see our country turned into China or Venezuela.
The real agenda is unknown but it is not that far of a stretch to imagine this is an easy means to keep the Capitol fully armed and thwart voices and persons protesting the trillions of dollars in spending and disastrous policy changes that will result in untold damage to America’s economy, constitutional rights and general way of life.
