According to President Biden, the intelligence community says that “terrorism white supremacy is the most lethal threat to the homeland today.”
Nuclear weapons from China or Russia can wipe out American cities.
Bioweapons can kill millions. Fentanyl from China is killing tens of thousands each year. Cities burned and dozens died in BLM-Antifa riots. The idea that white supremacists are the biggest threat is ludicrous.
If Biden is correct about the the CIA and FBI assessment, then intel agencies must either be incompetent or they must looking for a pretext for more surveillance and Stasi-style pre-dawn raids against perceived political opponents. Either way they need to be defunded to protect the republic.
On the other hand, if Biden’s report about the intel agencies is just another example of his fabrications and misinformation, then the question is why would he make up such a statement? Is it because China has the goods on him and his family, and they are demanding that he divert attention from China’s growing power and aggressive behavior?
Over 600,000 Americans have died from a virus that most likely originated as a result gain-of-function research in China. The technology for producing deadly novel viruses certainly exists and is becoming more widespread.
Hundreds of thousands have died in foreign wars since 1900; similar wars today could kill millions.
BLM riots and protests result in deaths of innocent people here are few examples as of June 8, 2020. In addition, homicide rates are way up in many cities as result of efforts to end police protection.
So instead of defunding, how bout reallocating existing resources.
They have been kicking around the rise in domestic terrorist among white nationalist for a while. Even when I was contracting in the cyber crime division at HQ, it was brought up a few times. That was almost 10 years ago.
Who to trust when it comes to assessing threats to the country? FBI/CIA officials who have dedicated their lives and careers to law enforcement and have sworn oaths of service to the country, or Bill from the internet. Tough call.
It was reported today that some of the white supremacists who trespassed on the capitol are going to plead guilty to their federal charges. And it was reported about one case where the judge is keeping a white supremacist in jail because he told her that he only gets his news from Donald Trump and so he believes that the election was stolen.
