The two pipe bombs discovered at the Republican and Democratic national committee offices during the recent Capitol breach were placed in their respective locations the night before, according to federal officials.

The devices, which were found by law enforcement on the day of the Jan. 6 breach, had been placed in their respective locations the evening prior between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m.

The devices’ connection to the Capitol breach remains unclear. Investigators are still examining the devices, which were similar in style and nature – both appeared to be about a foot long with end caps and wiring attaches to timers.

While the Biden administration wants the public to be afraid of “white supremacists” and “domestic extremism” new statistics reveal homicide rates have seemed to skyrocket in many cities across the country. This is at least partly due to the fact that law enforcement are afraid to do their jobs for fear of being attacked and prosecuted as racists.

DHS Issues a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin

Editor’s Note: Alongside the contested 2020 election and prevailing narrative attached to the January 6th events at the US Capitol, upon which federal prosecutions are presently going forward, this appears to be a signal move toward criminalizing thought in the US.

One might ask, “Why is there no similar attention by the new administration toward the potential threat of two million Chinese Communist Party members who’ve reportedly infiltrated governments and corporations throughout the West, not to mention their ‘fellow travelers'”?

WASHINGTON – The Acting Secretary of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin today after consultation with the intelligence community and law enforcement partners. There is currently a heightened threat environment across the United States that is likely to persist over the coming weeks. DHS does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot; however, violent riots have continued in recent days and we remain concerned that individuals frustrated with the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances and ideological causes fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize a broad range of ideologically-motivated actors to incite or commit violence.

Was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Detained By US Marshals on January 13?

There has been considerable buzz surrounding a January 13 AP photograph of Nancy Pelosi closely accompanied by at least two US Marshals in the US Capitol Building. Her eyes are downcast, suggesting shame and disgrace. Two videos below suggest this conclusion.

Some 2,000 National Guard members were sworn in as deputies by the U.S. Marshals Service, one of several civilian law enforcement agencies that will assign special police duties to the troops ahead of Inauguration Day.

Chief Lamont Ruffin from U.S. District Court swore in one batch of troops as deputy U.S. Marshals on Sunday night, the Marshals Service said. In a notice on the agency’s Twitter timeline, the service posted photographs of the service members being sworn in outdoors by nightfall.

Other agencies will also swear in troops who are supporting Operation Capitol Response, according to the National Guard. Those agencies include the U.S. Capitol Police, U.S. Park Police and the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.

“(Baker) threatened to kidnap and injure others, and he recently issued a call to arms for like-minded individuals to violently confront protesters who are expected to gather at the Florida Capitol.

“Extremists intent on violence from either end of the political and social spectrum must be stopped, and they will be stopped.”

(U//FOUO) This Joint Threat Assessment (JTA) addresses threats to the 59th Presidential Inauguration taking place in Washington, DC, on 20 January 2021. This JTA is co-authored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/US Secret Service (USSS), with input from multiple US Intelligence Community and law enforcement partners. It does not include acts of non – violent civil disobedience (i.e., protests without a permit), which are outside the scope of federal law enforcement jurisdiction.

(U//FOUO) This product is intended to support federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial government agencies and authorities in identifying priorities, as well as private sector security partners, for protective measures and support activity regarding terrorism and other existing or emerging threats to homeland security. Information in this assessment is current and accurate as of 14 January 2021.

(U Key Findings)

(U//FOUO) As of 14 January 2021, the FBI, DHS, USSS, US Capitol Police (USCP), National Capital Region Threat Intelligence Consortium (NTIC), Joint Force Headquarters-National Capital Region (JFHQ-NCR), Virginia Fusion Center (VFC) and the Northern Virginia Regional Intelligence Center (NVRIC), Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia (MPDC), and US Park Police (USPP) assess that domestic violent extremists (DVEs) pose the most likely threat to the 59th Presidential Inauguration in Washington, DC, on 20 January 2021 due to recent incidents of ideologically motivated violence , including at the US Capitol Building. In light of the storming of the US Capitol on 6 January, planned events in Washington, DC, in the lead up to and day of Inauguration Day offer continued opportunities for violence targeting public officials, government buildings, and federal and local law enforcement.

Another Capitol Hill police officer has died, just days after one officer was previously killed during the ‘Stop the Steal’ chaos when he was reportedly hit over the head with a fire extinguisher during the Capitol mayhem that has been driving global headlines.

Officer Howard Liebengood, 51, reportedly died by suicide while off-duty on Saturday, the US Capitol Police (USCP) announced Sunday in an official statement.

The USCP has not disclosed the specific cause of death, and it’s unclear the degree to which Liebengood was involved in “front line” events of Wednesday, which saw five total people die, including one woman that was shot by an officer while attempting to breach a high secure area of Congress.
