Homeland Security secretary to unveil new terror alert system

WASHINGTON — Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Monday his department will unveil a new national alert system in the coming days to reflect the “new phase” of the terror threat.

Johnson said his department will move to a new system that will include an intermediate terror threat. Johnson said the new alert system will reflect the current security environment when “not having a specific credible piece of intelligence specifying a plot isn’t the end of the story.”

A much-maligned color-coded terror alert system was put in place following the September 11, 2001, attacks and phased out in 2011 under Johnson’s predecessor. It was replaced by the two-tier National Terror Advisory System that has such a high bar it has never been used.

Johnson was speaking at a forum sponsored by the website Defense One.

After Johnson’s remarks, a DHS official said that the changes did not reflect a new system entirely, and instead changes to the existing NTAS.

“Earlier this year, Secretary Johnson directed a review of the NTAS to determine how the Department of Homeland Security can more effectively and quickly communicate information to the public and other partners regarding threats to the homeland,” the official said. “This is not a new system.”

    Stop Barry, his handlers are creating terror to control through fear.
    Control through Fear. Sometimes you use fear to train a dog, even a child. The Elites are our parents. WE the PEOPLE are the kids. Raise your hand if you do not understand this dynamic. Yes it’s been happening for ages. Yes it’s F’kt up! Wake up and arm yourself while you can, tell the truth and don’t fall victim to the greedy scum bags that rule this earth. Stand up for the REAL America, LIFE, LIBERTY, Real TRUE American Patriots should continue to denounce the scripted Main Stream Media and continue to learn about our shadow gov’t.

    The SS, I mean, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler_Youth#/media/File:Hitlerjugend.svg…sorry..DHS has a black pajama warning alert system. Also, anyone with one of those NEW TOYOTA ISIS TRUCKS in Murica’ is considered a domestic terrorist fyi.

    How they get weirdo’s to do stuff for them:
    Have FBI or CIA OR just let it happen organically…. OR
    1. Find some crazies..Islamic or black/brown preferred, give them drugs with or without them knowing, like Pill Cosby.
    2. Tell them when and where to commit their crazy sht, while partying with them etc etc…do drugs
    3. Give them new weapons and a bunch a ammo, some weekend before a grill out….after you give them more drugs
    4. hype them up psychologically to follow through with their “goal”…each time you see them….give them a “chill pill”
    Result:
    noun: Islamophobia
    dislike of or prejudice against Islam or Muslims, especially as a political force.
    “Let the fear flow through you” goooooood, goooooood be scared of ALL Muslims…..Gooood.

    Seriously!? How is this even a topic of conversation? We are being infiltrated by terrorists, and we’re worried about the colors and levels of threats? How about this, if the intel community detects a threat, they deal with it swiftly and forcefuly. If they miss it, let the armed citizens and police handle it. Otherwise all you’re doing is giving websites like this some other color box to attach an ad to. What a joke.
