The Biden/Harris administration is a mess. It’s a raging dumpster fire. The overt attempts to try to change the way our entire country is run and the efforts to try to ensure that government micromanages everyone’s lives to a woke, leftist viewpoint have conservatives furious.
But, no matter how insane this administration is, that doesn’t mean that they’re stupid. Remember, Biden worked under Obama when the Obama administration weaponized both the FBI and the IRS against political conservatives. And it looks like it may get worse. Katabella Roberts writes,
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is establishing a new dedicated intelligence team to focus on domestic terrorism, Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced on May 11.
The new dedicated domestic terrorism branch within the department’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) is designed to “ensure DHS develops the expertise necessary to produce the sound, timely intelligence needed to combat threats posed by domestic terrorism and targeted violence,” the agency said in a statement.
“I&A will also continue leveraging the National Network of Fusion Centers and our deployed intelligence professionals who collect and analyze threat information alongside our state, local, tribal, territorial, and private sector partners to increase timely and actionable information sharing in a dynamic threat environment,” it said.
In addition, DHS’s recently initiated Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3) to address domestic violent extremism will replace the Office for Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention.
Mayorkas said the CP3 will improve the department’s ability to combat terrorism and targeted violence, consistent with privacy protections, civil rights and civil liberties, and other applicable laws.
Call me cynical, but I’ve seen what Biden and Harris have done when they’ve had power, how they’ve used their political positions and government agencies to harass and abuse people that disagree with them. Does anyone think that this new team is really going to be used for anything other than harassing political conservatives?
I doubt it.
