Biden Takes On Domestic Terrorism

After a rise in hate groups over the last decade and then the breach of the Capitol on 06 January Biden has decided to take on the situation of domestic terrorism (about damn time)……

The Biden administration says it will enhance its analysis of threats from domestic terrorists, including the sharing of intelligence within law-enforcement agencies, and will work with tech companies to eliminate terrorist content online as part of a nationwide strategy to combat domestic terrorism.

The National Security Council on Tuesday released the strategy, which comes more than six months after a mob of insurgents loyal to President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress was voting to certify Joe Biden’s presidential win.

“Domestic terrorism — driven by hate, bigotry, and other forms of extremism — is a stain on the soul of America,” Biden, who’s traveling in Europe, said in a statement. “It goes against everything our country strives for and it poses a direct challenge to our national security, democracy, and unity.”

(Market Watch)

Under Federal law, “domestic terrorism” is defined as “activities that involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population, to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion, or to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.”

The Biden plan is a 4 pillar approach…..

PILLAR 1: UNDERSTAND AND SHARE DOMESTIC TERRORISM-RELATED INFORMATION

PILLAR 2: PREVENT DOMESTIC TERRORISM RECRUITMENT AND MOBILIZATION TO VIOLENCE

PILLAR 3: DISRUPT AND DETER DOMESTIC TERRORISM ACTIVITY

PILLAR 4: CONFRONT LONG-TERM CONTRIBUTORS TO DOMESTIC TERRORISM

Something needs to be done….this is a pretty good start but more will need to be done to protect our nation from those in-bred morons that commit domestic terrorism against this nation.

If you would like to see just what the president and his team want to accomplish then read the plan for yourself….

Like I stated….a good start but success will depend on the cooperation of all agencies involved….and I foresee a problem there.

We need to assure the American people (those with half a brain that is) that the events of 06 January was a one off and will never occur again.

Can this plan guarantee that?

  1. I’m glad somethings getting done finally. My mom and I have been watching these crazies for almost 40 years. I am also happy that people are finally remembering the Oklahoma City bombing back in 95. It happened a month and a day after I turned 13.

      1. I’m a History buff, and I’ve read a People’s history of the United States. I’m probably going to reread it soon.

  2. I took a quick look at the plan and what I read was reasonable.

    To make it however work, you need an attitude of:
    We’re in this together, we’ve to work together to get out.

    That’ll need a totally new approach.
    The unifying tactics, you might have had in the past, don’t work sufficient anymore.

    What really surprised me, in this plan, was:
    Learning from other countries how they deal, have dealt, with domestic terrorism.
    What works and what doesn’t work.

    Learning from other countries in general isn’t America’s strong point.
    Neither does taking preventative measures

    Domestic terrorist with crazy, farfetched conspiracies

    Domestic terrorist, not have any real idea what their country stands for.

    Domestic terrorist vonourable for nationalistic, divisive rethoric.
    Their “leader” is THE country.

    This type of arrogance, we’re are the best, is something the US, for it’s democratic survival, can’t efford, in fact never could.

    There is no shame in asking for help.
    There is a lot to learn.
    Thinking outside the American box could be one.

    I really hope for the US as a whole but also for every American, you get the democratic proces working again.

    It will be a long and winding road!

  3. I agree, the 6th was disgraceful and insane. But Biden’s plan only mentions white people, nothing about Antifa or BLM – why is that?

      1. I would think any one who goes to the extremes is one when they hurt others physically or emotionally.

      2. People don’t like being forced to think one way or another – there are names for that too.

      3. Even when they are destroying the hard work…but as you say they cannot be forced to think a certain way……and yes it is called social media. chuq
