As America’s deep divide continues to express itself in ever more terrifying ways, the Department of Homeland Security is issuing a stark new warning.
This week, our nation will be thrust into an ideological nightmare as the January 6th select committee holds “blockbuster” primetime hearings regarding the attempted insurrection at the Capitol on that fateful day. Their work so far has appeared to revolve around former President Donald Trump, and their dirt-procurement has been routinely lambasted by the GOP who believe that the group is merely gathering salacious headlines to be used during the 2024 presidential election.
On the precipice of this showmanship, DHS is revealing some mighty concerns.
The Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin Tuesday warning of a “heightened threat environment” over the next several months as they monitor both risks of domestic terrorism and foreign adversaries looking to sow discord within the U.S. to promote acts of violence.
“The United States remains in a heightened threat environment, as noted in the previous Bulletin, and several recent attacks have highlighted the dynamic and complex nature of the threat environment,” DHS said in a new bulletin from the National Terrorism Advisory System.
The organization believes that the trouble could be widespread.
“In the coming months, we expect the threat environment to become more dynamic as several high-profile events could be exploited to justify acts of violence against a range of possible targets,” DHS said.
The bulletin listed potential targets to include “public gatherings, faith-based institutions, schools, racial and religious minorities, government facilities and personnel, U.S. critical infrastructure, the media, and perceived ideological opponents.”
DHS also suggested that foreign actors may be glomming on to the agitation for their own nefarious purposes.
