DHS Sends Out Warning to the FBI
Cristal M Clark
It does appear that the threats against our nation from the inside are heating up along with our unusually hot summer. Since the FBI searched Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago home, threats of violence have been hitting social media platforms and are being posted on pro-Trump forums at an alarming rate.
I believe everyone half heartedly expected the violent rhetoric to die down once the search warrant had been unsealed but, that has not been the case at all.
At around 4AM this morning a man struck a barrier near the U.S. Capitol and then subsequently opened fire before fatally shooting himself according to police. On Thursday of this past week over in Cincinnati, Ohio a man attempted the breach the Cincinnati FBI field office, Ricky Shiffer after a hours long standoff with law enforcement was shot and killed.
What makes Ricky’s case all the more disturbing was that the FBI admitted they had previously received intel with regards to Ricky perhaps being of a concern to the safety and welfare of I would assume law enforcement or federal officials.
The FBI claims that, after not being able to locate Ricky, they were unable to substantiate the report and thus let it go.
I supposed the next go around they will try harder.
The threats hitting social media and forums are of a particular concern, in that they are exploding online at the speed of light and it is difficult to tell which are real and which are not, in fact, the Department of Homeland Security is so concerned that they sent out a warning with regards to the threats. These people want to go after the FBI, Federal Officials, Federal agencies as a whole, the Judge who signed the warrant and multiple others. Peoples home addresses, family member addresses have also been posted, this is a ticking time bomb of pure hatred and not of love of country. Reading some of the posts if you dare are quite frightening and indeed it is difficult to say which are real and which are not.
It does appear that a large of portion of these threats are being posted so as to encourage any taker that is willing, which does make this exceptionally all the more concerning and frightening.
In part here is what the DHS had to say in its bulletin: “The FBI and DHS have observed an increase in threats to federal law enforcement and, to a lesser extent, other law enforcement and government officials following the FBI’s recent execution of a search warrant in Palm Beach, Florida. These threats are occurring primarily online and across multiple platforms, including social media sites, web forums, video sharing platforms, and image boards. The FBI and DHS would like to ensure that law enforcement, court, and government personnel are aware of the range of threats and criminal and violent incidents.”
Former President Donald J Trump broke the law and had classified documents in his home, that he stole from the White House. He had been asked nicely to give those documents back and did not do that, what was the FBI supposed to do here? So far, for his days are seemingly numbered.
Trump’s fan base is a fuelled mob running off of lies that Trump told them and keeps telling, he using their love of the United States against them in an effort to start a civil war and, they are inspired by Trump’s continued hateful and violent rhetoric which serves no other purpose other than to encourage violent behaviour.
These Trump supporters, as I said whilst Trump was in office are the new terrorist threat in the United States. Trump has conveniently politicised our legal system, law enforcement, our judicial system and the United States Government as a whole, for if you go after him, his fan base will react violently.
If the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI cannot get a handle on these threats and more individuals act out, it will change the face of this nation and not in a very good way. We must remember that Donald J Trump is not a match, he is the fuel and his fan base are the dry kindling needed to start a forest fire of epic proportions.
