Homeland Safety Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued the sixth Nationwide Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin of the 17-month-old Biden administration on June 7. With a brand new bulletin each three months, People ought to ask: Are the threats dealing with America altering that quickly, or is the administration utilizing the bulletin as a instrument for another goal?
Timing is every little thing in life and particularly in Washington, D.C. To assist reply this query about why so many Biden administration advisory bulletins popping out of the Division of Homeland Safety, one want solely take a look at what else has been occurring the previous few weeks as we start the summer season, when the left wants voters energized to vote within the November midterms.
Given the very selective threats and priorities included within the bulletin, set towards recognized and suspected terrorists getting into the U.S. by way of the southern border, quite a few mass shootings, and violent pro-abortion supporters firebombing being pregnant facilities and protesting at conservative Supreme Courtroom justices’ properties and church buildings, the reply clearly seems to be that the Biden administration is utilizing the terrorism bulletin to advance its chosen narrative: White supremacy is in all places (the administration chooses to focus).
In releasing the brand new bulletin, Mayorkas stated:
As current acts of violence in communities throughout the nation have so tragically demonstrated, the nation stays in a heightened risk surroundings, and we count on that surroundings will develop into extra dynamic within the coming months, as a number of high-profile occasions might be exploited to justify acts of violence towards a variety of potential targets. These targets might embrace public gatherings; faith-based establishments; faculties; racial, ethnic, and non secular minorities; authorities services and personnel; U.S. essential infrastructure; the media; and perceived ideological opponents.
Translation: Violence will occur in all places and worsen this summer season and main as much as the November elections.
Nowhere does Mayorkas acknowledge the shortage of prosecution of harmful criminals by leftist district attorneys as a key consider such acts of violence. Nor does Mayorkas denounce the “defund the police” efforts or mentality, which leads to fewer cops, much less legislation enforcement, higher reluctance by police to interact violent criminals, extra preventable violence, and—needlessly—extra victims.
DHS additional states:
Risk actors have not too long ago mobilized to violence resulting from elements comparable to private grievances, reactions to present occasions, and adherence to violent extremist ideologies, together with racially or ethnically motivated or anti-government/anti-authority violent extremism … DHS continues to evaluate that the first risk of mass casualty violence in america stems from lone offenders and small teams motivated by a variety of ideological beliefs and/or private grievances.
The bulletin lists chosen mass shootings and unequally describes them to push the white supremacy narrative. With respect to the Could Buffalo, New York, grocery retailer taking pictures, the bulletin stories that the killer was “motivated by racist, anti-Black, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, sometimes called the ‘nice alternative’ or ‘white genocide.’ These theories declare that minorities, multiculturalists, and a ruling elite are intentionally threatening the existence of the white race.”
Examine that to the bulletin’s restricted description of the April New York Metropolis subway taking pictures. Nowhere does the bulletin point out that the shooter is black or that he had a historical past of spewing hatred for white individuals. As an alternative, the bulletin states that “plenty of pro-al-Qa‘ida and ISIS customers celebrated the assault.” Not solely is that irrelevant on this case, however it seems that the administration intentionally seeks to deflect from the black-on-white violence.
The bulletin omitted different very current mass shootings the place the perpetrators have been black, together with Philadelphia; Chattanooga, Tennessee; and Tulsa, Oklahoma. The administration doesn’t discuss Waukesha, Wisconsin, the place a black driver, who known as for violence towards white individuals, mowed down dozens of individuals marching in a Christmas parade along with his SUV, killing six individuals, together with an 8-year-old boy. And, after all, the weekly Chicago black-on-black violence is rarely talked about by this administration.
The bulletin additionally raises the southern border disaster, however to not level out the nationwide safety risk. It reads:
Some home violent extremists have expressed grievances associated to their notion that the U.S. authorities is unwilling or unable to safe the U.S.-Mexico border and have known as for violence to stem the circulate of undocumented migrants to america. We assess that there’s elevated danger of home violent extremists utilizing adjustments in border security-related insurance policies and/or enforcement mechanisms to justify violence towards people, comparable to minorities and legislation enforcement officers concerned within the enforcement of border safety.
Nowhere does the bulletin point out the actual threats getting into the U.S. by way of the open southern border daily. In simply current weeks, People realized of an ISIS risk to assassinate former President George W. Bush by exploiting the open border.
Nor does the bulletin alert to the suspected terrorist who was quickly processed into the U.S., per Biden insurance policies and observe, earlier than his background examine was full. When the finished examine subsequently revealed he was a suspected terrorist, it took two weeks for Immigration and Customs Enforcement to obtain approval to arrest the suspected terrorist.
And each of those circumstances got here on the heel of Mayorkas testifying about 42 recognized or suspected terrorists let into the U.S. and for whom Mayorkas couldn’t present their present location. However within the eyes of the administration, if you happen to level out our insecure border, you is perhaps a home violent extremist.
Together with this bulletin border language, People should be conversant in a June 6 letter to Congress during which 140 teams accuse those that oppose President Joe Biden’s open border insurance policies and asylum fraud of being white supremacists, identical to the Buffalo shooter. Anticipate the administration to work in live performance with congressional Democrats and leftist teams to proceed this tactic of labeling anybody who seeks a safe border and immigration integrity as a white supremacist.
The bulletin additionally factors out the violence associated to the approaching (last) U.S. Supreme Courtroom Dobbs v. Jackson Ladies’s Well being Group abortion determination. DHS writes:
People who advocate each for and towards abortion have, on public boards, inspired violence, together with towards authorities, non secular, and reproductive healthcare personnel and services, in addition to these with opposing ideologies.
The administration tries to painting violence and threats equally between abortion advocates and pro-life supporters when that defies actuality. It’s pro-abortion activists, not pro-lifers, firebombing and vandalizing pro-life and church services. It’s the pro-abortion radicals who’re illegally protesting in entrance of conservative Supreme Courtroom justices’ properties in an try to affect their last determination in Dobbs. And worse, it’s the violent pro-abortionists who threaten and endanger these identical justices’ lives.
The leftists in DHS know they’ve a violence situation on their facet of the ideological spectrum and attempt to justify it. In a leaked DHS Could 13 memo, the intelligence arm of the division is quoted as writing, “The mere advocacy of political or social positions, political activism, use of robust rhetoric, or generalized philosophic embrace of violent ways doesn’t represent home violent extremism or criminality and is constitutionally protected.”
This declare straight contradicts the administration and congressional Democrats’ efforts to label their political opponents as home terrorists and violent extremists for Jan. 6 participation, talking out in school board conferences, and different lawful and peaceable types of meeting and speech. Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Jan. 6 committee prime-time listening to manufacturing this week is Exhibit A.
The intent behind the administration releasing this sixth terrorism bulletin appears to be revealed within the memo’s following language:
As america enters mid-term election season this yr, we assess that requires violence by home violent extremists directed at democratic establishments, political candidates, social gathering workplaces, election occasions, and election staff will probably enhance.
America lived by way of many violent months in 2020, main as much as that election—violence that was carried out by radical teams comparable to Antifa and Black Lives Matter and supported by the left. Now, the left is revealing its observe and sample of encouraging and supporting violence main as much as yet one more election, within the guise of a “white supremacy” alert bulletin.
