Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, January 27, 2021

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.

Funny how the DHS is just discovering this now, after fmr Pres Trump has left office. Or... did they know about it previously, but were prevented from saying anything previously?

That aside...


Leaked Documents Show Police Knew Far-Right Extremists Were the Real Threat at Protests, Not "Antifa"

...As protests against police violence spread to every state in the U.S. and dramatic images flooded in from cities across the country, President Donald Trump and his attorney general spun an ominous story of opportunistic leftists exploiting a national trauma to sow chaos and disorder. They were the anti-fascists known as "antifa", and according to the administration they were domestic terrorists who would be policed accordingly.

But while the White House beat the drum for a crackdown on a leaderless movement on the left, law enforcement offices across the country were sharing detailed reports of far-right extremists seeking to attack the protesters and police during the country's historic demonstrations, a trove of newly leaked documents reveals....

...Audrey Strauss, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, William F. Sweeney Jr., [et al], announced that ROBERT LEMKE was arrested today based on a criminal Complaint filed in Manhattan federal court charging LEMKE with making threatening interstate communications.

As alleged in the Complaint unsealed in Manhattan federal court[1]:

On January 6, 2021, the same day that individuals purporting to protest the 2020 Presidential Election gathered in Washington, D.C. and stormed the Capitol Building, ROBERT LEMKE sent threatening text messages to the brother of the New York City-based Congressman, citing the Congressman's statements about the results of the 2020 Presidential Election. LEMKE's text messages, which included a picture of a home in the same neighborhood as the home of the Congressman's brother, stated:

Your brother is putting your entire family at risk with his lies and other words. We are armed and nearby your house. You had better have a word with him. We are not far from his either. Already spoke to [the Congressman's son] and know where his kids are.

. . . your words have consequences. Stop telling lies; Biden did not win, he will not be president. We are not[] white supremacists. Most of us are active/retired law enforcement or military. You are putting your family at risk. We have armed members near your home . . . . . Don't risk their safety with your words and lies.

Also on January 6, 2021, LEMKE sent threatening text messages to the Congressman's sister-in-law, stating: "calm your husband down . . . . We saw on the hidden camera, he was quite stirred up. You need to have him talk to [the Congressman]."

In addition, also on January 6, 2021, LEMKE sent threatening text messages to a relative of the Journalist, stating: "[The Journalist's] words are putting you and your family at risk. We are nearby armed and ready. Thousands of us are active/retired law enforcement, military, etc. That's how we do it."

LEMKE's Facebook account has...
