White House rebuffed efforts to make domestic terror greater priority


White House officials rebuffed efforts by their colleagues at the Department of Homeland Security for more than a year to make combating domestic terror threats, such as those from white supremacists, a greater priority as specifically spelled out in the National Counterterrorism Strategy, current and former senior administration officials as well as other sources close to the Trump administration tell CNN.

    There is absolutely nothing you can do to prevent non-stop, never ending mass shootings, says the only country that has non-stop, never ending mass shootings

      @Michael R Annis really? How many countries have citizens thay live in fear of druglords and terroist like Alquida and ISIS (they have the guns)? Im sure you think you are much wiser than our founding fathers. Guns have protected Americans for years in this country and to not recognize that is niave. That doesn’t mean I’m not on your side on wanting guns out of criminals/terroists/mentally ill peoples hands. Just like you are probably for stopping car accidents w/o banning cars.

      @anthonyjkeel Well we don’t disagree. I hope there will be bipartisan support for the red flags and that the notion that ‘Republicans aren’t trying to help’ be let to rest.

      @Michael R Annis You dont get it. The U.S has somewhere betweens 50-60% of civilian guns in the world. Most country’s have to control a few million guns at most. We have 300 million guns + a 2nd amendment preventing the government from disarming the people. If you think its easy, you are niave. If you think guns dont protect people from theft, rape, murder, and kidnapping, you are niave. Its not clear that banning all assalt rifles is best for the country. We all want them out of bad people with “red flags.”

      Jeremy Jackson oldest worst arguments in the world. Science shows the gun cult environment you tolerate makes it 10x more likely you will did from gun violence than any other developed country

      2016 study published in the American Journal of Medicine that measured violent death rates in the United States compared with other high-income countries, using mortality data from 2010.

      Researchers compared figures from the United States to the 26 other countries classified as “high-income” by the World Bank that were also members of the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development in 2010 — excluding Iceland and Luxembourg for “having very small populations.”

      The study focused on violent death in general, but it also looked at firearm deaths and found that “Americans are 10 times more likely to die as a result of a firearm compared with residents of these other high-income countries.”

      @cj p traitors to the country and Constitution will be dealt with accordingly.

    • @David Escobar sounds like it…the antifa firebomber…his gun malfunctioned before he got a shot off. He was mowed down instantly. Daton gun Man….was mowed down only after a minute of shooting…Steve scalise shooter…didn’t manage to kill a single person before he was blasted. Kid that tried to grab a cops gun at a Trump rally…barely got to touch that pistol before getting slammed into the ground. Few other situations I can’t remember the exact details of…but when libtards try to commit acts of violence, it ends in their usual level of monumental failure..

    The White House would be in panic mode if the terror threat was directed at them, but when it’s you America this is the response, ambivalence…. 😌🤢

    • Talk Blocked | August 7, 2019 at 7:17 PM | Reply

      Yeah, and it doesn’t help that CNN broadcasts some goof named Adolf (at 4:49) to reinforce the “good people on both sides” narrative, by saying there’s terrorists on both sides, and comparing the white-nationalist scourge with “antifa”. Anti-fascists are not the same as fascists. It’s not that difficult, CNN. Fact check your guests.

      The terror threat is directed at Trump. Have you been living under a rock?

  4. That vengeful imbecile LOVES domestic terrorism. He laughed, and encouraged people in the panhandle to shoot immigrants. He suggested that they could “get away with it”!

    • @Chard O’Mania you’re an idiot…CNN and liberal media is failing. Explain the layoffs…explain closing London offices…explain the ratings plummet after the report summary came out. Explain how trolls have quadrupled over 2 years. Libtards lack any ability to observe the world and just wait to be told what to believe.

    • @Kay and your too much of a dumbass to notice all the antifa violence. If CNN doesn’t tell you…you don’t know crap.

    The Right is trying to muddy the waters by claiming that OH shooter was a leftist as if that makes the outright white supremacists el Paso shooter a both sides argument. It’s pathetic.
    Most importantly, if the shooter was a leftist- That just means IT’S STILL THE RIGHT’S FAULT FOR ALLOWING EASY GUN ACCESS.

    Trump knows that investigating white nationalist radicalism means investigating his supporters.

  8. Thank you black reporter whose name I don’t know. We would be surprised if Trump actually did ANYTHING to thwart his white supremacist supporters!! It’s would be bizarre to think otherwise.

    • You America hating leftist’s need to drop the hate label…no one hates like the left! It makes you all look foolish when you use the word…I never knew what hatred was, until I saw the new democrat party…vile hate and ignorance…the likes this country has never seen! Driven by an America hating media that’s trying to start another civil war in this country…you’re going to wish you hadn’t listened to our enemies by the time it’s all over!

      @Gary Songer The left are Nazi propagandists. They love these shootings. They need these shootings.

    • Remember, the Bowling Green Massacre happened because Kellyanne was trying to *_invent_* tragedies to incite fear and hate against Muslims by using Islamic terrorism. Today, they’re trying to minimize the cause of tragedies by inventing excuses for White Nationalist terrorism.

      Cloud9 – Do you feel better now? Have you ever mixed paint to get a custom color? Pigments always disappear into the base, if the intent was to significantly change the color, you should first change the base. That is what Open Borders is all about, it’s a Globalist tactic. It will cause almost a universal economic neutralizing effect – so just a few can control the masses. So if you buy into this crap, its the beginning of the end – for you.

    • @Sui_Jay I wouldn’t worry about them giving Medicare to the immigrants before they do the Americans they don’t even know how to give that to the Americans so how in the hell are they going to give it to the immigrants? The Republicans have never had an answer for Healthcare. And don’t even try to address it, only continue to pretend like they are concerned. When the real truth is that they don’t give a damn about no one.

    • Vilma Balogh – You’re confusing Luciferianism with Satanism. They’re two different things. Satan is evil and of the darkness. Lucifer is light bearer, the Morning Star. The bringer of truth, knowledge and wisdom.

    • seeking wisdom | August 8, 2019 at 2:30 AM | Reply

      @Bovine One : Lucifer is the light bearer. Yet what is presented as luciferianism bears no light and is not of the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac or Jacob. Those “first born” light bearers have begun to take their positions finally 2300 years after the temple was destroyed…..Daniel 8:14kjv

    • seeking wisdom – Then why does his secret knowledge WORK so well? We control the world because of the wisdom LUCIFER has given us. Not the bible. The Bible is full lies. Why else would god punish Lucifer for giving us the truth? And Eve for “eating the forbidden fruit”? God doesn’t want man to know certain things because it would mean our liberation from him. Once you have the secret knowledge of Lucifer, god no longer has a need for you. Nor you for god.

      I would be far more constantly afraid visiting USA than I would be visiting China or almost any other country in the world, because of civilians in USA being allowed to own weapons of war, AK-47…! Anywhere at anytime in USA a mass shooter could arrive using his legally bought AK-47…! Only active war zones in the world are more dangerous than any place in USA!

    • @Akela DeWolf the only question you should be asking is, “why should anyone take me seriously?” I dont think that add was talking about statistics. It was stating a fact. Abortion is a constitutional right. Even if you dont like it. I think the fact that there are abortion clinics is a testament to the constitutional right for abortion.

    Why come to Toledo as trump called it and el Paso. When he’s to scared to stand up to the nra. And it won’t be long before he’s tweeting and being divisive. Nothing but a photo OP I feel sorry for the families and victims.

  18. Why don’t we just pay these Republicans politicians to do the right thing. Good spirited billionaires should get together and out bid the NRA. If one politician gets 2M from the NRA, we should out bid them and give them 3M. I’m pretty sure these politicians would go for it if they get paid more. We have to pay them if we want to see real results that’s the only way, unfortunately.
