Domestic Terror

Is the chance of a domestic terror attack unlikely?  Will it be a thing of the past?

Most of the terrorist attacks in this country have mostly been from homegrown terrorists….and not all have been zealots…..more than our Fearless leader wants to admit have been Right wing nutcases…..sadly whether you believe it or not our President is not helping the situation………….

Politics quickly eclipsed horror after Robert Bowers allegedly gunned down 11 worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October. The shooting, the worst anti-Semitic attack in American history, almost immediately became intertwined with Donald Trump’s divisive presidency. While the president appropriately condemned a “wicked act of murder” and anti-Semitism in general, he also quickly veered toward his own domestic political agenda, telling reporters that the shooting was not related to permissive gun laws and, in fact, “if they had some kind of a protection inside the temple, maybe it could have been a very much different situation, but they didn’t. And he was able to do things that unfortunately he shouldn’t have been able to do.”

Progressive Jews in Pittsburgh expressed their anger at the president, circulating a petition asking him not to visit the city because he had failed to condemn white nationalism and had targeted minorities in general. Trump then, of course, tweeted against the “Fake News” media for how they were covering the story.

Trump’s Department Of Homeland Security has decided that since there are NO domestic terrorists they will shutdown the department that tries to isolate and stop any attacks on the Homeland……..

The Department of Homeland Security has disbanded a group of intelligence analysts who focused on domestic terrorism, The Daily Beast has learned. Numerous current and former DHS officials say they find the development concerning, as the threat of homegrown terrorism—including white supremacist terrorism—is growing.

In the wake of this move, officials said the number of analytic reports produced by DHS about domestic terrorism, including the threat from white supremacists, has dropped significantly. People in and close to the department said this has generated significant concern at headquarters.

“It’s especially problematic given the growth in right-wing extremism and domestic terrorism we are seeing in the U.S. and abroad,” one former intelligence official told The Daily Beast.

Maybe this was a duplication of effort…if so then it needs to go….but that is about the only reason I can think of right now……

I know I feel so much safer with Trump in the lead…(that is sarcasm)….how about you?

  1. No matter who the President is, if people would notify the authorities if they see suspicious people, activity, or things, it would dramatically reduce terrorism, both domestic and foreign. It is the most logical tool in the tool box. As for the subject of terrorism, having lived around the arena for most of my life, it is not likely to go away anytime soon.

      1. So, you do not know how they were tracked, and “may not” means nothing.
        I will stick with the reality at hand, which has been going on since I went on active duty in 1977.

      2. Ad what reality is that…you have tied to start a debate…..what reality? So we do not need a domestic intel unit to track these pigs…..chuq

      3. The reality I speak of is planned or actual terror attacks. Domestic or foreign matters not.
        What I have seen you talk about is theory.
        I am not interested in any debate with you.
        You can have any theory you want; may happen, may not happen, could have prevented, etc. This talk does not interest me.
        You published your post, I threw in my two cents, that is all.
        We will never solve anything here with our talk. You have your opinions, and I have mine. We do not agree on much, if anything.
        Again, you posted your blog and I commented.
        I remember when Homeland Security was invented. That was supposed to be the fix all; haven’t seen much fixed by it; and I used to work with them.
        Where did this domestic intel unit come into play? What results has it produced?
        Back when Homeland Security became, all the federal agencies were supposed to share information, they still are not playing nice with each other.
        To date I am not impressed with our intelligence community over the past several years. If you know something you can share to clarify, please share.
        If not, I am out.
        Have a nice day.
