Forget about this summer and extremist groups taking siege of federal buildings for months on end and taking over entire city blocks and forming their own “autonomous zones” free from police. The storming of the Capitol is what has awakened the media to domestic terrorism (linked, inextricably, to white supremacy).
On PBS NewsHour Monday night, Susan Gordon, the former principal deputy director of national intelligence, talked with Nick Schifrin “to discuss whether Trump should be cut off after leaving office, insider threats in the military, and political appointments at the NSA.” At one point Gordon suggested the U.S. should think about a “9/11 Commission” for domestic terrorism.
Former intelligence official on PBS NewsHour tonight saying that the US should think about a "9/11 Commission" for domestic extremism and consider applying some of the lessons from the fight against Al Qaeda here at home.

2001: Globalist free trade and cultural engagement will inevitably liberalize China!
2021: You know what? China was right about authoritarian government and suppressing free speech – and we should look into having some secret police too! https://t.co/LCxctHC5Pk

Great plan. I foresee plenty of submission and acceptance of disenfranchisement and villainization by the 50% of America hated by the elite. Also, unicorns. https://t.co/Z5lXFP8f0N

So basically, we're going to see Ruby Ridge on a national scale. So much for unity.

Everything they did in DC was already illegal and telegraphed on social media months in advance. Law enforcement sat on their hands and then let them walk right in. More laws and surveillance is ludicrous in light of that.

The lessons are obvious. Don’t alienate a populace, don’t force them underground & into unregulated echo chambers, don’t give them reasons to feel persecuted, don’t give them martyrs. We’re botching this. Once they feel they are fighting for freedom & country, it’s too late.

I look forward to the unity and healing beginning to take hold as I’m dragged off to camps to be re-educated from wrong-think to right-think.

We have given intelligence agencies way to much power. People like James Comey run them. No way.

It is more than clear that our intelligence agencies need to be abolished and then rebuilt with entirely new standards, oversight, and personnel.

Journalists seem to be on board with anything that curtails freedom, aside from the freedom to get an abortion.
Mehdi Hasan says MAGA terrorists are more dangerous than Al Qaeda was (after 9/11) because they have Fox News https://t.co/9HaTgNhfuu
