Via Washington Times. In this era of a fraudulent and blatantly corrupt administration, they are weaponizing the powers of the State against you and I. Act accordingly.

The FBI currently has 2,700 open investigations of domestic extremism, more than double the usual number of cases, according to counterterrorism officials, underscoring the Biden administration’s accelerated pursuit of what it calls “domestic violent extremists.”
The increase in domestic violent extremism described by the Biden administration is shocking, suggesting that the number of plots and racially-motivated killings attributed to white supremacists has also multiplied. So far, the administration has not presented those sorts of numbers.
The Department of Homeland Security recorded an average of 1,000 investigations into domestic terrorism plots and incidents per year from 2017 through 2019, including approximately 846 arrests of suspected domestic terrorists by the FBI and other agencies, according to a DHS report.
The agencies attributed 57 deaths from 2017 through 2019 to acts of domestic terrorism, of which 47 were racially motivated and primarily carried out by white supremacists, according to the report.
“It goes without saying that the threat from domestic terrorism is heightened and has significantly increased in the last 18 months,” FBI Counterterrorism Division Assistant Director Timothy Langan said in recent testimony before Congress.
In the wake of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, the Biden administration redoubled efforts to counter the threat of “racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists” which the DHS describes as a “national threat priority.”
There are also growing concerns, however, that the hunt for domestic extremists has become politically charged and that a once-unthinkable authoritarian trampling of civil liberties in the U.S. is becoming a reality.
