  1. Obviously you need to infiltrate domestic terrorist organizations but why would we need to pass a new law for that? Go cointelpro on the Klan, nazi groups, and openly terroristic organizations and put someone who survived Cointelpro in charge. They didn't need a new law in the 60s!

  2. It was already been written back in 2003. "With the Domestic Security Enhancement Act the Administration would seek ""to take the Patriot Act's antiterror powers several steps further.""Dubbed ""Patriot Act 2,"" the legislation would grant additional sweeping powers to the government, eliminating or weakening remaining limits on government surveillance, wiretapping, detention and prosecution."—ACLU

  3. The question revolves around, do white supremacist groups feel they can plot with impunity? If so what do you do about it? Especially if the outcome of that impunity ensures inadequate protection of the state capitol at a time when it was obvious more protection was required.

  4. The government already has the legal authority to investigate crimes, use confidential informants, undercover operations, etc. in order to see if there is probable cause to arrest or to convene grand juries to seek indictments. It isn't that difficult. Just do your job.

  5. I agree, the point they making, but the guys in Washington, don't want another security breach, this time some may get hurt.
    As far as not liking that many national guards in Washington, how about having ten times as much, U.S troops, in a foreign country, disrupting that countries normal life, for years, it's okay to do it in other countries, but up in arms, if it happens here. We live in a country were we can not tolerate the slightest inconvenience, even if it's for a few days, or weeks. If you think we live in a free country, think twice, it's ironic that in a free country, we have so many laws in every aspect of our lives.

  6. Ughhhh, these politicians just don't get it, we do not want a war on our own people; More accurately we CANNOT be a country if we are fighting ourselves. This is what the police are for, and exactly right Saagar, just use more police for times like presidential elections, bad moves here.

  7. "We're gonna have to RESET our entire intelligence approach to these <U.S. citiizens>" – there's that word – RESET. Straight from Biden's Build Back Better benefactor – Klaus Schwab / WEF. Seems to me, these folks that are intent on destroying our country, taking away our freedoms, apply censorship, create a security state – these are the real traitors. Our founding fathers would be very troubled at this terrible turn towards this beautiful country. No matter – we weathered the McCarthy extremists in the 50s, the U.S. of A will survive Biden, and become stronger of it.
