MEMO TO THE DOJ: THIS MUST BE ONE OF THOSE WHITE SUPREMACISTS...

According to the Department of Justice, the greatest threat to America is domestic white supremacists.

Top law enforcement officials say the biggest domestic terror threat comes from white supremacists.

Attorney General Merrick B. Garland and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas testified to senators about the threat of domestic terrorism and extremism, which they both said is often racially or ethically motivated.

“Combating domestic violent extremism and domestic terrorism has long been a core part of the Justice Department’s mission. Immediately upon its founding more than 150 years ago, the department pursued white supremacists who had sought to deny newly freed slaves their rights under the Constitution, including the right to vote. Unfortunately, the horror of domestic violent extremism is still with us.

Indeed, the F.B.I. assessed that 2019 was the deadliest year for violent domestic extremism since 1995. In March of this year, the intelligence community, in a report drafted by D.H.S., the F.B.I. and the National Counterterrorism Center, under the auspices of the Director of National Intelligence, assessed that domestic violent extremists pose a elevated threat in 2021.

And in the F.B.I.’s view, the top domestic violent extremist threat we face comes from racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocate for the superiority of the white race.”

“The terrorism-related threats we face as a nation have significantly evolved since the department’s creation in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The threat landscape is now more complex, more dynamic and more diversified.

Today, racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists are the most likely to conduct mass casualty attacks against civilians and anti-government or anti anti-authority violent extremists, specifically militia violent extremists, are the most likely to target law enforcement, government personnel and government facilities.

[OCS: Why is it the DOJ and FBI continue to mention the Proud Boys and OathKeepers, yet ignore Antifa and Black Lives Matter, two communist front groups with verifiable attacks on government facilities and personnel, and who have caused over $2 billion in property damage? Or list Louis Farrakahn's Nation of Islam as a black militia focused on racial division and separatism? ]

The threats posed by domestic violent extremism are often fueled by false narratives, conspiracy theories and extremist rhetoric spread throughout social media and other online platforms.” <Source>

Meet a real domestic terrorist…

Man takes hostages at synagogue, demands prisoner be freed

COLLEYVILLE, Texas (AP) — A man took hostages Saturday during services at a Texas synagogue where he could be heard ranting in a livestream and demanding the release of a Pakistani neuroscientist who was convicted of trying to kill U.S. Army officers in Afghanistan.

At least four hostages were initially believed to be inside the synagogue, according to three law enforcement officials who were not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation and who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity. The synagogue’s rabbi was believed to be among the hostages, one of the officials said. One of the officials said the man claimed to be armed but authorities had not confirmed whether he is.

The Colleyville Police Department said one hostage was released uninjured shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday. The man was expected to be reunited with his family and did not require medical attention.

Authorities are still trying to discern a precise motive for the attack. The hostage-taker was heard demanding the release of Aafia Siddiqui, the Pakistani neuroscientist suspected of having ties to al-Qaida, the officials said. He also said he wanted to be able to speak with her, according to the officials. Siddiqui is in federal prison in Texas. <Source>

The height of media idiocy…

The mainstream media’s continuous live news coverage of the hostage situation is an unpaid commercial for future terrorists seeking martyrdom. Amazingly, the procession of former-this or former-that talking heads speculating about attitudes, tactics, and filling the air with inane chatter is abominable.

But nothing tops Fox News having Lara Trump opine on the private training of religious leaders in tactics needed to respond to a hostage crisis. And inserting the failure of Biden and the strength of Trump into the conversation. How many times can you repeat “Fox News Alert” ten hours after the hostage-taking began?

Fox-lt

This type of fill-the-space partisan commentary numbs the audience to this act of terrorism and desensitizes the nation to the threat of terrorism.

Bottom line…

Crazies, criminals, and terrorists are surging across our Southern Border. At the same time, Attorney General Merrick B. Garland, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas, and FBI Director Christopher Wray refused to investigate and prosecute government officials ignoring federal immigration laws and allowing the slow-moving takeover of the United States. 

Note to our political leadership: Ignoring the threat that violent Islamic extremism, both foreign and domestic, poses to the United States is a dereliction of duty.

We are so screwed, 

P.S.  The first responders ARE NOT heroes – they are ordinary men and women doing the job they have chosen.

IS THERE SUCH A THING AS BADDER SPAM?

There is little or no doubt in my mind that we all hate SPAM – not the kind you eat, the kind you receive in your inbox.

So I am not overly surprised that evildoers are now exploiting your hatred of spam to deliver malware to infect your system – not in the email itself, but using the unsubscribe process.

Unsub-1

As you can see, hitting the unsubscribe button led me to a somewhat legit-looking unsubscribe page. However, my security software flagged a potential intrusion and sent the file to the quarantine bit bucket. There was no doubt in my mind that the JS/Kryptik virus is capable of opening a backdoor to your system that could which could insert additional malware on your system or allows remote access to an attacker.

Bottom line…

Be wary of the actual trojan threat as well as the possibility that your anti-virus software may be flagging a “false positive.” My rule is to delete the file if it appears questionable – even though the warning is possibly a false positive.

USING SOCIAL MEDIA TO AMP-UP A UKRAINE CONFLICT

Is the Biden Administration pushing America into another foreign conflict to misdirect the nation’s attention from the gross and growing failure of the Biden Administration that is being stage-managed by the Obamacons?

White House: Russia prepping pretext for Ukraine invasion

U.S. intelligence officials have determined a Russian effort is underway to create a pretext for its troops to further invade Ukraine, and Moscow has already prepositioned operatives to conduct “a false-flag operation” in eastern Ukraine, according to the White House.

[OCS: Why is it that these same intelligence experts never reveal that the majority of the affected population in these disputed areas are ethnic Russians, speak the Russian language, and in many cases hold Russian passports and would rather be associated with Russia rather than Ukraine?]

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Friday the intelligence findings show Russia is also laying the groundwork through a social media disinformation campaign that frames Ukraine as an aggressor that has been preparing an imminent attack against Russian-backed forces in eastern Ukraine.

[OCS: White House press secretary Jen Psaki is a liar – a despicable, duplicitous. liar willing to say anything to advance the Administration’s agenda. Baghdad Bob in a skirt!]

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby described the intelligence as “very credible.” A U.S. official, who was not authorized to comment on the intelligence and spoke on condition of anonymity, said much of it was gleaned from intercepted communications and observations of the movements of people.

[OCS: Intelligence from the corrupt Obamacons embedded in the government, especially the National Security Council? Intelligence who seem shocked and surprised when major developments occur on the world state? Intelligence gleaned from mostly open sources – using the social media as a primary source of “credible” information?]

The U.S. intelligence findings, which were declassified and shared with U.S. allies before being made public, estimate that a military invasion could begin between mid-January and mid-February.

[OCS: As we have seen before, true intelligence is almost never revealed, unless the administration is advancing their agenda or conditioning the battlefield, both foreign and domestic.]

Ukraine is also monitoring the potential use of disinformation by Russia. Separately, Ukrainian media on Friday reported that authorities believed Russian special services were planning a possible false flag incident to provoke additional conflict. <Source>

[OCS: Historically, false flag incidents are used to create propaganda justifying further political or military action.]

Purported intelligence on social media sites is suspect...

Whose side is Alexander Vindman really on?

Trump Impeachment Whistleblower Alexander Vindman Slams Biden Over Russia and Ukraine

Trump impeachment whistleblower Alexander Vindman slammed the Biden administration on Thursday over its approach to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

“Now what? Diplomacy looks to be a dead-end & the U.S. & West have done little on deterrence. Russia’s offensive against Ukraine will be the largest in Europe since World War II & there is nothing effective being done to avert it. Start working contingencies & arm Ukraine,” tweeted Vindman.

The USG should have started with an engagement (diplomacy) & pressure track. When paired, the pressure track would aid the possibility of dissuading the coming Russian offensive. Instead, the West went all-in on diplomacy, absent a display of hard power. It was destined to fail.

The pressure track, still has a small, possibly of being effective. The intent is to avoid the kind of war that is likely to drag the U.S. into a conflict (e.g. World War II). What to do: 1) Send troops to Eastern Europe to reassure allies and help with refugees coming from Ukr.

2) Arm Ukraine with defensive lethal aid (air & coastal defense, electronic warfare, & anti-armor; 3) coax Sweden & Finland into initial talks on joining NATO; 4) legislate sanction to snap in as soon as Russia escalates; 5) consider NATO (not U.S.) deployments to west Ukraine.

A major war in Europe would be a disaster for the Biden admin. On the hells of the Afghanistan withdrawal fiasco, this would kill hopes of dems holding Congress in 22 & be a disaster for the 24 election cycle. Preservation of the Republic necessitates Biden gets this one right. <Source>

[OCS: I have always regarding Vindman as a quisling who was working for the Ukraine oligarchs. An advisor proven to be an un-American liar who should have been cashiered long ago. His twitterstorm of advice is about as reliable as his account of the Trump/Ukraine telephone call.]

Bottom line…

We are entering desperate times when the out-of-control Biden Administration fails before our very eyes. Becoming more authoritarian as they elevate domestic dissent over true existential foreign threats. Possibly creating the conditions for foreign conflict to justify some of their more radical and draconian actions on the population of the United States.

To say we are screwed by powers beyond our immediate control is an understatement.
