ALERT: Homeland Security Issues Terrorism Advisory

( – The United States Department of Homeland Security has issued a terrorism advisory as the December holidays approach.

According to the Daily Caller in its report “DHS Cites Paul Pelosi Attack, Colorado Shooting In Warning Of ‘Heightened’ Terrorism Threat”:

“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a terrorism advisory bulletin Wednesday warning of a “heightened threat environment,” referencing the recent assault on Paul Pelosi assault and the Colorado Club Q shooting.

“The DHS bulletin, a summary of the “terrorism threat” in the U.S., suggested that there is an increased potential for “threat actors” to exploit events over the holiday through violence. The advisory pointed to the recent shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub, Club Q, in which five people were fatally shot, and the home invasion and assault on Paul Pelosi as events that received praise from online hate communities and contributed to the heightened threat environment.” [emphasis added]

According to DHS, potential targets include “public gatherings, faith-based institutions, the LGBTQ community, schools, racial and religious minorities, government facilities and personnel, U.S. critical infrastructure, the media and perceived ideological opponents. The DHS also suggested that the attackers could be motivated by grievances based on ‘perceptions that the government is overstepping its Constitutional authorities or failing to perform its duties.'”
