The “heightened threat” isn’t U.S. citizens … it’s the implementation of the Biden Administration’s “1984” Guidebook.February 16, 2021
Ben Weingarten at the Federalist, warns, “Biden’s Domestic War On Terrorism Seeks To Criminalize Political Dissent.”
With Trump toppled, the Jan. 6th protest among non-leftists provided the catalyst for completing the total war on the true objects of the ruling class’s ire: dissenting Americans.
The current narrative: There is a growing “insurgency” among “domestic violent extremists.” The riot was their 9/11. Consequently, the threat, highlighted by that despicable act, demands not only its own 9/11 Commission, but a war on domestic extremism, particularly “white supremacist extremists.”
A summary of Biden Administration initiatives…
✅ Wall-to-wall coverage of a neophyte congresswoman

✅ 60-day military stand-down to root out extremism
✅ FBI & DHS to assess threat of domestic violent extremism
✅ Improve Gov’t information sharing to disrupt violent extremist networks

The government’s collection of this sensitive information is itself an invasion of privacy. But its use of this data is also rife with abuse. Innocuous data is fed into bloated watchlists, with severe consequences—innocent individuals…
The ACLU has been at the forefront of the struggle to prevent the entrenchment of a surveillance state by challenging the secrecy of the government’s surveillance and watchlisting practices; its violations of our rights to privacy, free speech, due process, and association; and its stigmatization of minority communities and activists disproportionately targeted by surveillance.
