DHS Issues a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin: “There is currently a heightened threat environment across the United States”

The Acting Secretary of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin today after consultation with the intelligence community and law enforcement partners.

“There is currently a heightened threat environment across the United States that is likely to persist over the coming weeks.

DHS does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot; however, violent riots have continued in recent days and we remain concerned that individuals frustrated with the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances and ideological causes fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize a broad range of ideologically-motivated actors to incite or commit violence.”

  • Throughout 2020, Domestic Violent Extremists (DVEs) targeted individuals with opposing views engaged in First Amendment-protected, non-violent protest activity.  DVEs motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and police use of force have plotted and on occasion carried out attacks against government facilities.
  • Long-standing racial and ethnic tension—including opposition to immigration—has driven DVE attacks, including a 2019 shooting in El Paso, Texas that killed 23 people.
  • DHS is concerned these same drivers to violence will remain through early 2021 and some DVEs may be emboldened by the January 6, 2021 breach of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. to target elected officials and government facilities.
  • DHS remains concerned that Homegrown Violent Extremists (HVEs) inspired by foreign terrorist groups, who committed three attacks targeting government officials in 2020, remain a threat.
  • Threats of violence against critical infrastructure, including the electric, telecommunications and healthcare sectors, increased in 2020 with violent extremists citing misinformation and conspiracy theories about COVID-19 for their actions.
  • DHS, as well as other Federal agencies and law enforcement partners will continue to take precautions to protect people and infrastructure across the United States.
  • DHS remains committed to preventing violence and threats meant to intimidate or coerce specific populations on the basis of their religion, race, ethnicity, identity or political views.
  • DHS encourages state, local, tribal, and territorial homeland security partners to continue prioritizing physical security measures, particularly around government facilities, to protect people and critical infrastructure.

    But, nevertheless they’re promulgating tons of dis-information to keep you in fear. Fear God. God doesn’t lie. The government specializes in it.

    wow terrorisms! we haven’t heard about that in several years, i wonder if as the liberals take over there will be unfortunately of its ugly head

  • lkwdresident says:

    They are weaponizing everything. So if you’re unhappy with the election outcome you’re a threat. And for years they said Trump is the dictator. The antifa caused riots for years and not a word.

  • Mendel says:

    First official propoganda issued by a government agency under Biden. Oregon is burning but we are warned about El Paso from two years ago.

  • Hocker Central says:

    Agreed agreed agreed

    As a self professed avid looter and arsonist, I can tell you that I am so relieved that we now have a President who sees the real threats this country faces, instead of worrying about burnt, ash-ridden stores, stolen merchandise and cops in the hospital ward. I never thought this country would return to normalcy, but I was wrong, my mistake. I lost my faith in the mainstream media and progressivism; . my bad, my mistake. I repent.
