Skip to comments.Exclusive: FBI document warns conspiracy theories are a new domestic terrorism threat
Posted on 08/01/2019 2:26:47 PM PDT by Rio
The FBI for the first time has identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat, according to a previously unpublicized document obtained by Yahoo News. (Read the document below.)
The FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureaus Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019, describes conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists, as a growing threat, and notes that it is the first such report to do so. It lists a number of arrests, including some that havent been publicized, related to violent incidents motivated by fringe beliefs.
The document specifically mentions QAnon, a shadowy network that believes in a deep state conspiracy against President Trump, and Pizzagate, the theory that a pedophile ring including Clinton associates was being run out of the basement of a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant (which didnt actually have a basement).
The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts, the document states. It also goes on to say the FBI believes conspiracy theory-driven extremists are likely to increase during the 2020 presidential election cycle.
The FBI said another factor driving the intensity of this threat is the uncovering of real conspiracies or cover-ups involving illegal, harmful, or unconstitutional activities by government officials or leading political figures. The FBI does not specify which political leaders or which cover-ups it was referring to.
President Trump is mentioned by name briefly in the latest FBI document, which notes that the origins of QAnon is the conspiratorial belief that Q, allegedly a government official, posts classified information online to reveal a covert effort, led by President Trump, to dismantle a conspiracy involving deep state actors and global elites allegedly engaged in an international child sex trafficking ring.

The real conspiracy is not being able to find FBI agents and a Justus Deportment willing to prosecute anyone of stature, since it would be unreasonable.
Two and one-half years in and the FBI is still rogue.
Just the Deep State banging the drums for totolitarian censorship. I cannot wait for the FBI, being the communist goons that they are, to start going after people who believe in the “Big Tech Censorship Conspiracy”.
My late Father often said, “Intrigue only begat intrigue.”
I have anticipated we would be drifting into the bizarre world of Spy vs. Spy and counter-counter spies.
This analysis sounds Gay.
Did the fey Wray approve this?
Entire document (redacted) at following link:
Many people actually believe either that Barack Hussein was not legally a natural born citizen of the United States or at least that he was culturally not an American.
Many people believe that Global Warming is, despite polling well among politically connected scientists funded by federal government grants, not real science.
Many people believe that Donald Trump beat Hillary [the best candidate ever] fairly rather than by colluding with the Russians.
Many people believe there is a Deep State conspiracy to overthrow the duly-elected President of the United States.
Where do these silly theories come from??? IF CNN and MSNBC were mandatory viewing, we could get rid of this nonsense.
Why should the FBI reform? They know they are protected.
Exclusive: FBI document warns conspiracy theories are a new domestic terrorism threat
One of the worst conspiracy theory offenders IS the FBI.
Everyone must be careful to believe only the official prevailing explanations. Got it.
This Jana Winter?
I think I recognize the name.
I’m not sure but I think she is part of a “cyber security” org I discovered in Phoenix.
In reality they are tuning AI software to identify conservatives and conservative postings so they can be dropped or eliminated from search engines.
I think the Q thing is silly too...but the Phoenix field office would be the same one that wanted to go after the reporter who reported on the infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting, would it not? Or was it just the Comey FBI team that wanted revenge on the reporter?
thanks to its leadership, the fbi has now become a politically weaponized private goon squad of the virulent left
imho the fbi can now write off any expectation of cooperation from civilians
we are slowly but surely becoming a banana republic
From the people who brought us the GW Bush AWOL theory
Question authority? You’re a terrorist threat.
