DHS issues heightened terror threat citing ‘mis- dis- and mal-information’ on election fraud and COVID-19


by Thomas Lifson


The Department of Homeland Security issued a Bulletin on Tuesday that sounds precisely like a prelude to a totalitarian crackdown on political dissent from the preferred narratives of the Biden regime and the deep state. Read the opening of the summary:


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.

It then claims that foreign forces use these dissenting voices:

  • Malign foreign powers have and continue to amplify these false or misleading narratives in efforts to damage the United States.
The implication is obvious: disagreement with official narratives is treasonous.

As a friend of mine put it in an email, “It takes real chutzpah for Homeland Security to put out this kind of warning given its total dereliction of its duty to secure our borders.”
