AMERICANS! Are you aware if you disagree with the policies of your government – EVEN WHEN YOUR DISAGREMENT IS BASED ON FACTS! – YOU are designated as proliferating “false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions.” (As in Big Bro tells YOU to believe false science and directives OR ELSE!) AND AS SUCH your Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has labeled your factual disagreement as terrorism? ERGO According to the DHS, that means your factual disagreement makes YOU a terrorist!
Here are three cross posts (1-Activist Post and 2-The Patriot Post) on essentially the Communistic-turn in the U.S. government to totally disregard the U.S. Constitution which until Dem-Marxist/RINO totalitarianism was a government by WE THE PEOPLE.
I need your generosity. PLEASE GIVE to overcome expenses:

DHS Suggests Those Who Spread “Misleading Narratives” That “Undermine Trust in US Gov’t” are Terrorists
By Matt Agorist
FEBRUARY 9, 2022
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Monday issued a bulletin warning of a heightened terrorism alert in the United States. One of the “key factors” for the heightened threat, which the DHS considers terrorism, is “the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions.”
Naturally, this has many folks concerned, especially considering the examples cited in the bulletin which include “false or misleading narratives” about “unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19.”
While parts of the memo cite calls for violence and attacks by foreign terrorist organizations — which are actual terror threats — as cause for concern, the idea that the government’s definition of misinformation could potentially earn you the label of “terrorist,” is shocking.
The bulletin is titled, “Summary of Terrorism Threat to the U.S. Homeland” and reads as follows (emphasis added):
The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors. These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence. Mass casualty attacks and other acts of targeted violence conducted by lone offenders and small groups acting in furtherance of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances pose an ongoing threat to the nation. While the conditions underlying the heightened threat landscape have not significantly changed over the last year, the convergence of the following factors has increased the volatility, unpredictability, and complexity of the threat environment: (1) the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions; (2) continued calls for violence directed at U.S. critical infrastructure; soft targets and mass gatherings; faith-based institutions, such as churches, synagogues, and mosques; institutions of higher education; racial and religious minorities; government facilities and personnel, including law enforcement and the military; the media; and perceived ideological opponents; and (3) calls by foreign terrorist organizations for attacks on the United States based on recent events.
As stated above, reasons 2 and 3 are obvious threats of terror and make sense. However, given the government’s tendency to paint with a broad brush, undermining public trust could make millions of people terrorists, including the Free Thought Project.
It is the job of a true journalist to undermine trust in the government; and given the shifting goal posts on what is defined as “misinformation” over just the last two years, literally anyone could find themselves subject to this definition. To hammer their point home, DHS specifically calls out misinformation on COVID-19.
Remember in 2020, when any talk of a potential lab leak theory was considered “misinformation”? By this definition, everyone who talked about the lab leak theory was a potential terrorist.
Key factors contributing to the current heightened threat environment include:
1. The proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions:
* For example, there is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19.
Doctors like Robert Malone and Peter McCullough, who challenge the vaccination mandate, are now, according to this bulletin, terrorists. Given the fact that the government is urging Spotify to censor Joe Rogan for “misinformation,” according to this bulletin, Rogan is also a terrorist. Their information and discussions on Covid-19 have certainly sown discord and undermined public trust — and rightfully so — but does this make them a terror threat?
Obviously, it does not. The only people who would be threatened by healthy, science-based skepticism as espoused by doctors like these two, are tyrants who wish to control the narrative.
Given the extremely broad definition of what the government considers “misinformation,” this bulletin is one of the most worrisome documents to come from the feds in recent history. What’s more, the mere act of releasing such a document, actually “undermines public trust in U.S. government institutions” by threatening those who would dare question the status quo.
Make no mistake, this is a move to criminalize free speech by allowing the executive to declare anyone who disagrees with their dictates, a terrorist. [Blog Editor Emphasis] With declarations like this, the government doesn’t need terrorist organizations to “sow discord” — they are doing it themselves.

DHS Publishes an Unhinged Terror Threat Advisory
Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security has gone to nearly comical lengths to target his political enemies.
February 9, 2022
We wish these Nervous Nellies would make up their minds. Ever since Scranton Joe took office, the Biden administration has been telling us to be on the lookout for all those highly elusive white supremacists who are, of course, the sum and source of our nation’s ills. That and
global warming climate change.
But now, instead of trying to root out the handful of lactose-intolerant methane-dispensing neo-Nazis in our midst, they’re telling us that the real threat is “an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors.”
So it’s the MDM, OK? And that’s coming straight from the National Terror Advisory System within Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security. The chilling Terror advisory continues:
These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence. Mass casualty attacks and other acts of targeted violence conducted by lone offenders and small groups acting in furtherance of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances pose an ongoing threat to the nation.
Your tax dollars at work.
There’s plenty more within the document, and it’s worth a quick review, if only to better understand how feeble-minded leftists work. For example, the first bullet point within the “key factors” section of the document says: “There is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19. Grievances associated with these themes inspired violent extremist attacks during 2021.”
So if you’re not convinced that ol’ Basement Joe Biden got all 81 million of those votes on the up-and-up, and if you think all these COVID restrictions have become less and less about public health and more and more about power and control, well, you’re a threat.
But it’s not just you, and not just the rest of our loyal readership. Apparently, Texas Republican Congressman Troy Nehls is also a threat. Nehls has been a vocal critic of Nancy Pelosi’s sham J6 Committee, otherwise known as the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, and he put out a press release Tuesday saying that “a USCP officer entered his office and took a photo of private congressional material protected by the Speech and Debate Clause, Article I Section 6 of the U.S. Constitution.”
“Quite honestly, I’m being targeted right now,” Nehls told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Tuesday night. “And I believe that Nancy Pelosi is weaponizing the U.S. Capitol Police to investigate me, to try to silence me, intimidate me, and quite honestly, to destroy me.”
Nehls has asked the Capitol Police Inspector General to conduct a formal investigation into the incident, and his request has been accepted. “Capitol Police leadership have put a target on my back,” he says, “but my work in exposing the security failures on January 6th, the death of Ms. [Ashli] Babbitt, and the sham investigation into the events of January 6th will not be deterred.”
Elsewhere, several Republicans have signed a letter to Pelosi and House Administration Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren calling on them to investigate the reports of Capitol Police “monitoring” lawmakers and citizens. “If these reports are true,” said Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs, “that the Capitol Police force is actively looking for and reviewing private information, then this is a gross violation of American civil liberties and an abuse of power.”
If all this Democrat focus on weaponizing government to attack political opponents weren’t such a threat to our constitutional order and our system of checks and balances, it’d be a real hoot.

The Democrats’ BLM Crime Syndicate Implodes
Demos: “Move on, nothing to see here, but look over there at the RNC endorsement of that J6 riot!
February 9, 2022
“I hate deception, even where the imagination only is concerned.” —George Washington (1779)
For the past week, socialist Demo Party protagonists have been desperately scrambling to divert media attention from the collapse of their highest-profile pet political constituency front, the violent Marxist movement deceptively known as Black Lives Matter.
To achieve this “look at the shiny thing” distraction, they’ve been feigning outrage over the Republican National Committee censure of Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois for playing leading roles in Nancy Pelosi’s inquisition theater. According to the resolution, “Cheney and Kinzinger are participating in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse.”
Demos insist this is an endorsement of the Capitol riot, and typical of their ludicrous lying Leftmedia diversions was this New York Times headline: “G.O.P. Declares Jan. 6 Attack ‘Legitimate Political Discourse.’”
For context, let me reiterate that the group of thugs who confronted police outside the Capitol building, and the larger group of protesters who illegally entered the building, were outliers, most of whom had attended the large Donald Trump rally prior to the Capitol incursion. But the objective of Pelosi’s histrionic “insurrection inquisition” of the J6 protest goes far beyond what happened in the Capitol building. It is a broad-sweeping attempt to paint all Trump supporters in DC that day, and by extension across the nation, as extremist insurrectionists.
To that end, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel clarified that the censure reference to ordinary citizens who engaged in legitimate political discourse “had nothing to do with violence at the Capitol,” despite the fact Democrats and their propagandists spun it as an endorsement of the “attack.”
But Pelosi’s spinners were out in full force with the attack endorsement claim. A case in point: Referring to the RNC resolution, Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) asserted on CNN that police were murdered by Trump rioters: “In what scenario does killing police officers … become classified as legitimate political discourse? … This shows how far the Republican Party in Washington DC has become from the nation of the American People.”
There were not multiple “police officers” killed in Washington, DC, on J6. In fact, there were no police officers killed that day or later as a result of any injury suffered on January 6. [Blog Editor Emphasis]
The gross irony of Crow’s false assertion, which went unchallenged by CNN host Pamela Brown and every other “fact-checker” before this column, is that the police officer Pelosi and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) claimed was murdered by J6 protesters, CPD Officer Brian Sicknick, was used as a dead cop prop by Democrats until their lies about his death were completely debunked months after the fact, when they allowed the release of the DC medical examiner’s cause of death.
That’s grossly ironic also because, in the six months before the J6 protests, cops and many others were actually being murdered by Democrat-backed groups, including their Black Lives Matter constituents. [Blog Editor Emphasis]
After Pelosi and Schumer kneeled for George Floyd in the Capitol rotunda, using his death as a prop in order to ignite their constituents’ “summer of rage,” there were more than 50 murders (including several police officers) directly associated with almost 600 violent riots, which caused billions of dollars in damages. [Blog Editor Emphasis]
At the same time, Democrat governors and mayors were actually ordering police to stand down as they actively supported those “peaceful protests.” Recall that Kamala Harris was promoting a “get out of jail free” bail fund for these riotous thugs. [Blog Editor Emphasis]
Fast-forward to this week, when one of those murderous BLM rioters in Minneapolis, Montez Terriel Lee, who torched a building and killed its occupant, was sentenced to just 10 years. Yes, it was felony murder, but it was for a “good cause.”
Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) expressed outrage over the light sentence, declaring: “In the case of Mr. Lee, the acting U.S. attorney in Minnesota seems to have reached the bizarre conclusion that his radical political motives somehow excuse, rather than exacerbate, his wrongdoing.” That line of logic is precisely the line taken by Democrats regarding their constituent rioting — the burn, loot, and murder riots were justified.
Sen. Tom Cotton said likewise: “Justifying the murder because the career criminal shares the Biden administration’s politics is beyond the pale. The American people deserve to know whether leniency for left-wing murderers is the official policy of the Biden Department of Justice.”
Republicans are demanding that Attorney General Merrick Garland release all DoJ communications regarding this prosecution and sentencing.
At the same time Demos were fanning the “summer of rage” flames, they launched their deadly “defund the police” charade — painting a target on the backs of all law enforcement officers. The result was end of watch calls for 73 murdered cops in the deadliest year for police in two decades.
Now, the organization promoting much of that murder and mayhem, Black Lives Matter, is imploding. The corruption leading to BLM’s implosion was both fully noticed but fully unacknowledged by those Democrats who were its most fervent promoters and benefactors.
A Washington Examiner investigation into BLM’s “financial irregularities” found the organization “has had no known leader in charge of its $60 million bankroll since its co-founder resigned in May,” and that BLM has not reported required information regarding its 2020 finances — the year in which it loaded up its slush fund.
No longer able to avoid the obvious, California’s Justice Department threatened to prosecute the “charity” if it didn’t immediately cease and desist all fundraising. Likewise, Washington State issued an immediate “cease fundraising” order and BLM is out of compliance in seven other states.
After our exposé last year on BLM’s consummate hypocritical Marxist cofounder, one Patrisse Khan-Cullors (read: “Con-Cullors”), and her suspicious retirement at age 37 after purchasing $3.2 million worth of luxury residential property, nobody with an IQ greater than a paper clip is surprised by this implosion. Even the drunkest of BLM’s Kool-Aid drinkers could see this coming.
Incidentally, after the latest case of the leftist GoFundMe outfit shutting down a conservative page, this time the Canadian Freedom Convoy, claiming erroneously that the truckers were involved in altercations, I did a quick search and found many active GoFundMe pages still raising money for BLM. [Blog Editor Emphasis]
Meanwhile, according to the legions of Demos who have backed BLM’s violence for the last two years: “Move on, nothing to see here, but look over there at the RNC endorsement of that J6 riot!”
Finally, defying all reason, I still know many leftist Demos who are so emotionally bonded with this race-hustling racket that they still embrace the hustle – emotionally blinded to reality. Of course, most of them are wealthy white suburban lefties so reality is not a familiar domain.
