Are Climate Skeptics the Next to be Declared Terrorists?

[Preface by Charles]

This is an article which refers primarily to politics and covid skepticism being targeted.

For example, there is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19.

However, note this sentence, emphasis mine.

the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions; 

Since Climate Change has been politicized and institutional capture appears to have occurred at the EPA, The Department of Energy, The Bureau of Land Management, NOAA, NASA (Earth Science), The Department of State, The Department of Education, The CDC, and more, this notice declares ordinary speech protected by the 1st Amendment, to be an indicator of potential terrorism and sedition. It is difficult the express the banality and danger of this notice, probably written by a 20’s something grievance studies major. Frightening doesn’t even begin to describe the descent into madness indicated by the issuance of this notice.

[End Preface]

DHS: Anyone Who Doubts Government Covid-19 Positions is a Seditionist

h/t Breitbart; According to a DHS Bulletin, anyone, especially foreigners, who promote Covid or 2020 narratives the Biden administration thinks are false are promoting sedition, which could lead to mass casualty attacks.

Summary of Terrorism Threat to the U.S. Homeland

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.

Additional Details

The primary terrorism-related threat to the United States continues to stem from lone offenders or small cells of individuals who are motivated by a range of foreign and/or domestic grievances often cultivated through the consumption of certain online content. The convergence of violent extremist ideologies, false or misleading narratives, and conspiracy theories have and will continue to contribute to a heightened threat of violence in the United States.

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. Grievances associated with these themes inspired violent extremist attacks during 2021.
    • Malign foreign powers have and continue to amplify these false or misleading narratives in efforts to damage the United States.
  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:
    • Foreign terrorist organizations and domestic threat actors continue to amplify pre-existing false or misleading narratives online to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions. Some of these actors do so to encourage unrest, which could lead to acts of violence against the facilities, individuals, institutions, and organizations cited above.
    • Violent extremists inspired by a range of grievances and ideologies continue to target crowded venues traditionally perceived to be soft targets, such as commercial and publicly accessible facilities, public gatherings, certain government and state facilities, and houses of worship.
    • The recent attack on a synagogue in Colleyville, Texas highlights the continuing threat of violence based upon racial or religious motivations, as well as threats against faith-based organizations.
    • Threats directed at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other colleges and universities, Jewish facilities, and churches cause concern and may inspire extremist threat actors to mobilize to violence.
    • As COVID-19 restrictions continue to decrease nationwide, increased access to commercial and government facilities and the rising number of mass gatherings could provide increased opportunities for individuals looking to commit acts of violence to do so, often with little or no warning. Meanwhile, COVID-19 mitigation measures—particularly COVID-19 vaccine and mask mandates—have been used by domestic violent extremists to justify violence since 2020 and could continue to inspire these extremists to target government, healthcare, and academic institutions that they associate with those measures.
    • Domestic violent extremists have also viewed attacks against U.S. critical infrastructure as a means to create chaos and advance ideological goals, and have recently aspired to disrupt U.S. electric and communications critical infrastructure, including by spreading false or misleading narratives about 5G cellular technology.
    • Some domestic violent extremists have continued to advocate for violence in response to false or misleading narratives about unsubstantiated election fraud. The months preceding the upcoming 2022 midterm elections could provide additional opportunities for these extremists and other individuals to call for violence directed at democratic institutions, political candidates, party offices, election events, and election workers.
    • A small number of threat actors are attempting to use the evacuation and resettlement of Afghan nationals following the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan last year as a means to exacerbate long-standing grievances and justify attacks against immigrants.
  3. Calls by foreign terrorist organizations for attacks on the United States based on recent events:
    • Foreign terrorist organizations will likely continue to maintain a highly visible online presence to attempt to inspire U.S.-based individuals to engage in violent activity.
    • Supporters of foreign terrorist organizations have encouraged copycat attacks following the January 15, 2022 attack on a synagogue in Colleyville, Texas.
    • Foreign terrorists remain intent on targeting the United States and U.S. persons, and may seek to capitalize on the evolving security environment overseas to plot attacks. The Islamic State of Iraq and ash-Sham (ISIS) or its affiliates may issue public calls for retaliation due to the strike that recently killed ISIS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi.

How We Are Responding

  • DHS and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) continue to share timely and actionable information and intelligence with the broadest audience possible. This includes sharing information and intelligence with our partners across every level of government and in the private sector. We conduct recurring threat briefings with private sector and state, local, tribal, territorial, and campus partners, including to inform security planning efforts. DHS remains committed to working with our partners to identify and prevent all forms of terrorism and targeted violence, and to support law enforcement efforts to keep our communities safe.
  • DHS’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis established a new, dedicated domestic terrorism branch to produce the sound, timely intelligence needed to counter related threats. The Department expanded its evaluation of online activity as part of its efforts to assess and prevent acts of violence, while ensuring the protection of privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties.
  • DHS’s Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3) provides communities with resources and tools to help prevent individuals from radicalizing to violence. In 2021, CP3 awarded about $20 million in grants through its Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant Program. CP3 also partners with local communities to raise awareness about how to prevent violence.
  • In 2021, DHS designated domestic violent extremism as a “National Priority Area” within its Homeland Security Grant Program HSGP), resulting in at least $77 million being spent on preventing, preparing for, protecting against, and responding to related threats.
  • In 2021, DHS’s Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP) provided $180 million in funding to support target hardening and other physical security enhancements to non-profit organizations at high risk of terrorist attack.
  • DHS is working with public and private sector partners, as well as foreign counterparts, to identify and evaluate MDM, including false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories spread on social media and other online platforms that endorse or could inspire violence.
  • DHS’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) works with public and private sector partners – including U.S. critical infrastructure owners and operators – to mitigate risk against our cyber and physical infrastructure and increase nationwide cybersecurity resilience.

The sheer absurdity of this hardline position is illustrated by the changing narrative on the origins of Covid-19.

In 2020, Dr. Fauci dismissed claims Covid-19 leaked from a lab.

… Anthony Fauci, the U.S.’s top infectious disease expert, was dismissive of the theory of an accidental escape.

“A group of highly qualified evolutionary virologists looked at the sequences in bats as they evolve. The mutations that it took to get to the point where it is now are totally consistent with a jump of a species from an animal to a human,” he said Friday in the White House press briefing in response to a reporter’s question on the theory. …

In 2021, Fauci admitted he had an “open mind”;

… Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday again pushed back on criticism he “deliberately suppressed” the theory that Covid-19 originated in a lab in Wuhan, China, claiming he’s always kept an “open mind” about how the virus first spread—but a review of his comments over the last year shows the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, like other scientists, has become more open to other theories even as he continues to assert, like the majority of scientists, that the virus likely came about naturally …

This growing uncertainty about the official position led to Facebook hilariously announcing in April 2020 that members are now permitted to discuss the lab leak hypothesis. Facebook had previously been vigorously censoring such posts.

… In light of ongoing investigations into the origin of COVID-19 and in consultation with public health experts, we will no longer remove the claim that COVID-19 is man-made or manufactured from our apps. We’re continuing to work with health experts to keep pace with the evolving nature of the pandemic and regularly update our policies as new facts and trends emerge. …

Read more: https://about.fb.com/news/2020/04/covid-19-misinfo-update/#removing-more-false-claims

How are we meant to interpret the DHS bulletin? Are seditionists who promoted lab leak theories in early 2020 now forgiven, because official positions have changed? Or are they still considered seditionists, because they promoted the lab leak theory during a time the official position was that the lab leak theory was an unfounded conspiracy theory? Is Facebook guilty of sedition, because they changed their censorship policy before Fauci officially softened his position on the origin of Covid-19?

The situation would be hilarious if it wasn’t so serious. People should be free to express their opinion, no matter how outlandish. Otherwise, how are we better than Communist China? How will we ever learn the truth, when the government gets it wrong?

What is “protest?” In the First Amendment – “Congress shall make no law respecting … the right of the people PEACEABLY to assemble, and to PETITION the GOVERNMENT for a redress of grievances.”

“Protest” does NOT mean the destruction of property (public or private), impeding the free movement of private citizens, or trespass upon private property. So far as I can tell, with the exception of “interfering with government meetings,” these laws pass the conditions laid down by the Amendment.

Of course, equal enforcement is the main problem. How many of the Code Pink “protestors” that have invaded the Capitol Building over the years have spent even ONE night in jail?

You know “Socialism” is just a vague feelgood term for ‘controlled society’, and I know Socialism is just a vague feelgood term for controlled society, but the useful idiots think it means the Government would be “religiously” dedicated to making the ordinary people’s lives ever so pleasant and fulfilling . .

So, I suggest you avoid using any of the vague feelgood terms that the thuggish antisocial personality disorder control freaks surely prefer to be identified with, rather than thuggish antisocial personality disorder control freaks. I mean, if that’s what you believe they really are . .

Mission creep on stilts: an organisation (ASIO) that was set up after WW2 to deal with foreign espionage now regards Australian citizens and taxpayers who happen to to think the government Covid-19 measures were gross overreactions and who claim sovereignty over their bodies as dangerous security risks.

There are two striking elements in this.

The first is the emphasis on “false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions”.

This, taken at face value, would apply to much of the BLM and Critical Race Theory ideologies, and indeed to the whole 1617 project. They do indeed tend to undermine trust in US government institutions by portraying the US as a nation founded on (and continuing to depend on) enslavement and oppression of minorities. The historical basis for the 1617 project is a classic case of misinformation and misrepresentation.  And they certainly ‘sow discord’!

The second however is the absence of any reference to any of the main events which have emerged from these ideologies, in particular the rioting and arson of last summer. After all, in Portland, such basic institutions as the police stations and city hall were being attacked, and whole areas of the city were being turned into no-go areas for the authorities. 

This was accompanied by inflammatory and misleading claims about the extent, nature and causes of police violence – and such narratives would on the face of it fit the criteria. You cannot get much clearer examples of the phenomenon being addressed than the demand that, on the basis of false claims about police violence, the police department should be defunded.

On the face of it, identity politics, in which the ethnic background or skin color is treated as the defining thing about someone, is absolutely calculated to ‘sow discord’ and lead to the formation of conflicting identity oriented interest groups.

It is a classic phenomenon in political or cultural revolutions that the institutions which the revolutionaries create are then turned on the inventors. The quoted document is an example of policies which can be turned back on the originators.

Its worth noting that something similar is happening in other Western countries. For example, the attempts in the UK, and particularly in Scotland, to ban speech which offends, is something which sooner rather than later will be applied to speech by the righteously indignant left. Its traditional on the left of the Labour Party to refer to the Conservatives in the most immoderate terms – here for instance is Angela Rayner, the deputy head of the Party, as reported in the Guardian:

“We cannot get any worse than a bunch of scum, homophobic, racist, misogynistic, absolute vile … banana republic, vile, nasty, Etonian … piece of scum,” she said at the event, before adding that she had “held back a little”.

The current head of the Liberal Democrats said, in a piece printed in the Times:

“I hereby float the idea of a Remain alliance to decaptitate that blond head in Uxbridge and South Ruislip if Johnson calls a snap election to deliver Brexit,” he said.

David Lammy, a Labour MP, compared Brexit Leavers with Nazis, and said that understated their evilness.

The more inclusive the left makes the definition of hate speech, the sooner and more fiercely it is going to get turned on them.

The real crime wave that the U.S. is suffering – the one the DHS prefers we didn’t see – has nothing to do with conservativism. It has everthing to do with dysfunctional families, easy access to guns, abysmal housing, drugs, alcohol, and violent underclasses that despise work. The clear target of the DHS proclamation is conservatism. DOJ’s Merrick Garland and others in the Biden administration are nurturing various memes about racism and domestic terrorism to smear conservatives of all types. If you see government overreach as a threat, you’re a conspiracy theorist. If you see crime as the chief problem you’re a racist. Meanwhile they turn a blind eye to the anti-police rhetoric that fuels the biggest spike in criminal violence in decades.

The clearest and most pernicious fomenters of social chaos are our current crop of liberal government officials.

UN Climate Finance advisor Marc Carney, ex-Bank of England chief, made it very clear at COP26 – the ruthless, relentless pursuit of NetZero and $100 TRILLION. Anyone getting in the way of this ruthlessness is, well naive to say the least!

“Only” imposing modern Lysenkoism!
Although it’s impossible to say for sure, Trofim Lysenko probably killed more human beings than any individual scientist in history. Other dubious scientific achievements have cut thousands upon thousands of lives short: dynamite, poison gas, atomic bombs. But Lysenko, a Soviet biologist, condemned perhaps millions of people to starvation through bogus agricultural research—and did so without hesitation. Only guns and gunpowder, the collective product of many researchers over several centuries, can match such carnage.” https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2017/12/trofim-lysenko-soviet-union-russia/548786/

There is a good reason for criticizing Liz Cheney. Complaining that Liz Cheney should not be criticized means the Senators do not see the existential threat to personal freedom posed by the radical Democrats with the support of idiots like Liz Cheney.

How many stupid Republican Senators are going to tell us they can’t see the danger the Democrats pose to the personal freedoms of all of us?

If they don’t see the danger from the radical Democrats and their useful idiots like Liz Cheney, then they should not be elected to public office because they also pose a danger to the personal freedoms of all of us because of their delusional thinking.

The Democrats are the problem, not Trump or his supporters. Get that through your thick heads, Republicans. Or you become an additonal problem.

From the article: “DHS’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis established a new, dedicated domestic terrorism branch to produce the sound, timely intelligence needed to counter related threats.”

The Biden administration set this up specifically to attack Trump and his supporters.

Democrats think it is ok to use the power of the federal government to attack their political enemies. The Obama administration did it to Trump, and now the Biden administration is doing it to Trump.

When sanity again rules in the U.S. (Republican majorities), we need to put these Democrat traitors in jail and show them that it is unacceptable/illegal to use the power of the federal government to attack their political opponents in an effort to retain their political power.

There are not enough “domestic terrorists” in the U.S. to fill a football stadium. Domestic terrorism is much ado about nothing. It’s just being blown out of proportion by the Biden adminstration in an effort to try to justify attacking Trump and his supporters.

It’s all about attacking Trump, because the Democrat Socialists fear he will take their political power away from them. And he will. So the Democrats declare Trump and all his millions of supporters as being domestic terrorists with the real goal of cracking down on behavior or thoughts the Democrats don’t like and suppressing any support Trump might have.

We are in a battle for our personal freedoms with power-hungry, ruthless, criminal Democrats who will stop at nothing, legal or illegal, to keep their political power.

**I chose ‘criminal’ due the Fed’s practice of ignoring the US Constitution and selective enforcement of laws that are often unconstitutional themselves.

How can you say, with a straight face, “the attempted coup of our national government”?

People without any leadership or chain of command, whose only unifying ideology was a belief that the election had been fraudulent, armed only with ‘weapons’ as fearsome as a flag staff and a fire extinguisher taken off the wall, confronted armed police only slight smaller in number. There was no real plan or attempt to usurp the government (To perhaps be run by a figurehead shaman with mental issues?), and no means to run the government had they been successful, however you want to define “successful.” You are not being rational or realistic! It was a riot, pure and simple, that was no more likely to replace the existing form of government than any of the violent ‘BLM’ riots during the Summer.

A coup (“a sudden illegal, often violent, taking of government power, especially by part of an army:”) was an impossibility. Whether one calls it a coup or an insurrection, it is an inaccurate characterization of a group of people whose goal was a thorough investigation of the fraud charges raised about the election. Anyone who resorts to using a pejorative term like “coup,” is demonstrating a strong bias that they are willing to support by lying.

February 10, 2022 5:17 am

Before Biden was sworn in as president, you had party-worshipping democrats say that “hate speech” should not be protected by the 1st Amendment. Who defines what is “hate speech”? Why, the very same ones who say it shouldn’t be protected. What they are really saying is that you are free to say what you want, as long as we — the leftists — agree with it.

Soon after Biden went to the White House, he said that the 2nd Amendment was not absolute.

Can you see how this will go? If the 2nd Amendment is not absolute, then so is the 1st Amendment. The 1st Amendment states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” If the US Bill of Rights is not absolute, then it is acceptable for the President or any one of their three-letter agencies to take away freedom of speech and freedom of religion. As long as Congress does not take it away, it will not violate the text of the 1st Amendment. Or worse, a treaty which takes these things away.

What else wouldn’t be absolute? The 5th Amendment, so a person’s silence means he is guilty. The 6th Amendment, so a person will not entitled to a speedy trial and can languish in prison without charges. Habeas corpus was already suspended once in the US history, what is to stop it from happening again? After all, the combination of COVID-24 and climate change is a crisis unlike any crisis we have seen before. They will argues that it is okay to suspend these things, because these rights are not absolute and the crisis is too great not to do anything.
