NBC News: Trump administration will apparently not renew a program that fights domestic terror.




https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna926361

WASHINGTON The Trump administration, which already canceled a grant for a group that fights white supremacist terror, now appears unwilling to renew the anti-domestic terror program under which it was funded, despite recent high-profile attacks like the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and data showing a spike in attacks on religious minorities.

The Obama administration launched the Countering Violent Extremism Grant Program in 2016 to fight domestic terrorism. Managed by the Department of Homeland Security, the program was given $10 million to distribute.


In the last days of the Obama administration, DHS awarded the money to more than two dozen groups around the country to counter violent extremism of all kinds, including right-wing extremism. Data from the Global Terrorism Database shows there was a spike in attacks on American religious organizations in 2016-17.

Yup Trump really wants these guys operating freely as his militia.

3. THAT'S the real question. What ta hell does DHS do solely

on their own? Bush added 17% to the size of govt w this redundant dept. Nice in theory, but, the 911 imbroglio/madness is over. Dissolve the Dept.

7. The Director spends a lot of time on her knees

Kirstjen Nielsen, like many of Trump's cabinet...isn't qualified to be a meter reader for a utility company, much less in charge of the DHS!

She's a two faced, lying slag...and possibly closet Nazi!!

"On June 20, 2018 after repeatedly arguing that the administration could not sign an Executive Order to end family separations, she was present at Trump's signing of an Executive Order ending his "zero-tolerance" policy of separating of children from families. Sources told Politico that Nielsen had privately pushed for this executive order behind the scenes while at the same time saying publicly that the executive order could not be created."

The Alt Right, KKK, Neo Nazis...those are all supports that Nielsen supports...behind the closed doors!!!

DHS is a failed department and now it will be used by Trump to give assistance to the Bowers, Roofs, and Sayocs that are still out there!!!

6. You don't expect him to investigate his base, now, would you?

He needs all of the fans he can get. Even tucker Carlson couldn't refute this study:
