Homeland Security Warns of Terrorists Exploiting Pandemic

Stay calm — but remain vigilant. Terrorists won’t let a crisis go to waste. ABC News reports that a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo warns — violent extremists could seek to exploit the Wuhan Virus (COVID-19) to carry out attacks against the U.S.

The intelligence bulletin, sent to law enforcement nationwide, was compiled by the DHS Counterterrorism Mission Center and Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office.

According to the memo, “Violent extremists probably are seeking to exploit public fears associated with the spread of COVID-19 to incite violence, intimidate targets and promote their ideologies, and we assess these efforts will intensify in the coming months.”

DHS notes that it has “no information indicating any active plotting is underway,” but has observed certain groups looking to “spread misinformation about the coronavirus.”

However, ABC News reported that DHS did cite a weekly ISIS newsletter, “which called for supporters to carry out attacks against overburdened health care systems in various Western countries.”

Another section of the bulletin identifies white supremacists online who DHS says have “advocated for violence against a range of targets, including critical infrastructure and faith-based and minority communities — including Asian Americans in response to the COVID outbreak.”

Additionally, ABC News reported on an FBI’s New York field office alert that “showed intelligence gathered on racist extremist groups, including neo-Nazis, that were encouraging followers who contract COVID-19 to spread the disease to Jewish people and police officers.”

While this new intel adds to the stress of the current crisis, we should all do our best not to allow this information to create panic. It is just an added level to be aware of as we go about dealing with this crisis.

Stay calm — remain vigilant — and carry on.

  1. Hey You Lying Mainstream Media Apparently Your Hate Filled MisInformation has Finally been Recognized for what it is!

    The DHS has observed certain groups looking to “spread misinformation about the coronavirus.

    Shut Them Down Now!!!!

  2. “violent extremists” as Nance the Ripper Pelosi and Sabotage Schumer and all the rest of the Communist Democrats, each and every one especially those of color like the Democrat Majority Whip in the House Clyburn who want their own plantations and their people of color and every other race in the US bowing down to them as King, and they were shot down and President Trump approval went above 60%.
    And then there’s Barr – it’s taken him a while but he apparently has all the evidence to hang both Ecuador’s FARC and its nexus to Maduro of Venezuela (we knew Maduro didn’t have the wherewithal to do what he’s been doing, and for so long, and now Barr has the source of money for Maduro – it’s FARC – so Barr has announced a 15 million dollar reward for Maduro for Narcoterrorism.
    That is how the US ‘got’ “Pineapple Face” Noriega, with troops sent in to bring him out and to the US for trial, and the people of Panama were with the US on that one too just as they will be for Maduro.
    BUT, what we expect will come next are all the US Political Connections with Maduro and who are also working with FARC (and against Julian Assange too since FARC is Ecuador.)
    Can’t help but wonder if Pelosi and Schumer and Soros and Gates and Obama and Victoria Jarrett and Brennan and Rice, ETC. are in on that too since it keeps looking like they’ve got their fingers in every corrupt pie there is.

  3. From article: “Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo warns — violent extremists could seek to exploit the Wuhan Virus (COVID-19) to carry out attacks against the U.S.”

    This is correct – the extremists are known as DEMOCRATS led by Nancy Pelosi, exploiting the situation to attack America. She and her il;k should be arrested immediately!!

  4. Liar liar pants on fire. The white people are kindness people in the world so anyone who believes this stupid lie look in the mirrow home land security you always keep allowing many illegal aliens in this country so if anyone going hurt any of Americans citizen you are who we will blame cause you been sucking up to the trash for decades. We the people aint scared funny you lame people still do not get it. Ya still have no idea who you are fucking with. American Hispanic who always be a Patriot. Trump 2020

    • You are right “Rhina”, the media and Home Land Security (The Deep State) has completely and very intentionally betrayed America and ALL Americans for many many years now! They are intentionally vilifying White people because they get their power when they divide Americans against themselves. I also agree that the White Americans have probably done more for human charity, without discrimination, than any other race of any other nation in history, even though good people come in all colors 😉 The Deep State (and their masters) do actually know what they are doing and there is no mistake about it because they well understand it is treason. Most of the figureheads of The Deep State are actually lawyers and/or have HUGE staffs of attorneys at their disposal. Please don’t take that comment as if The Deep State and their puppeteers are acting within the law, because they should be tried by a legitimate court and if guilty executed! Although the criminals of humanity do know what they are doing, because they have been planning and doing it for many decades, I agree with you in that they have no clue who they are fucking with! Ha! Indeed! This article is actually intended to get good folks to go against other good Americans that are actually doing their duty under The Constitution. The “White Supremacist’s” and any other so called “hate groups” that propose Americans become divided for any reason, especially race, age, or gender, are not great in numbers in America and they are clearly NOT acting in accordance with The Constitution! We absolutely must NOT allow anyone in government to vilify or harm the Americans who honor their oaths under The Constitution in law and in Spirit! I believe it was in 2009 that Hillary (as secretary of state) declared war in America when she said that “Ex military, Ex police, and American Constitutionalists are on the top of the Obama administrations terrorist list and most likely to cause trouble!”. I heard her say it myself, but the media immediately dropped the story/statement. That was a declaration of war without doubt and in no uncertain terms! Any government that makes an official statement like that is revealing its most evil and criminal intentions! Never trust the government as The Constitution warns and do your best to enjoy every day as the free American that you are!

      • While most of what you say is true ANTIFA and the res of the radical groups in this country are crazy enough to try anything but they will reap what they sow if they do.

  5. It’s nice that they put this out so they can read it and start their trouble. Why don’t you tell them how to go about it and where to start. Like what was bone whit the tween tower’s when a reporter ask a engineer that helped build them. He told what could be done.

  6. How can you resist terrorists? By fighting back when they attack. But you can’t do that if the Democrats and Bloomberg have succeeded in taking your guns and ammo. Just like the Japanese, the MUSLIMS (that is who terrorists ALL are) are most afraid of. Millions of armed patriots who refuse to obey the puppets of the elite ONE WORLD ORDER.

  7. The DemonRats been To Quiet the last couple days. I WONDER WhaT TheiR Plotting Now. 😠
    Load and BE READY To STOP the TREASONOUS Traders at ALL cost.

  8. We’re already being attacked by domestic terrorists, all the Democrats and their frauds the Drs. Fauci and Birx (there’s good reason for something is afoot with Fauci favoring to be interviewed on CNN and MSNBC but not FOX who has the top ratings b/c of telling the TRUTH.)
