The tyrannical deep state is rapidly moving America to a state of Stasi control, where anyone who expresses dissent (mainly people without large influence) will be locked away and labeled “domestic terrorists.” It’s happening right now.

Bloomberg ‘reported’:

The Justice Department is “actively considering” whether to seek a new law that would let prosecutors bring specific charges for plotting and carrying out acts of domestic terrorism, a senior department official said.

“One of the things we’re looking at is would we need new authorities,” Brad Wiegmann, deputy assistant attorney general for the department’s national security division, said during a House hearing Thursday.

Wiegmann said the department has been successful using existing laws to fight domestic terrorism, such as bringing charges for offenses involving violations of weapons or explosives laws, hate crimes and arson. He said more than 430 arrests have been made in connection with the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol. The attack was carried out by extremist supporters of then-President Donald Trump.

The FBI has warned that domestic violent extremists pose a heightened threat for carrying out attacks in the U.S. in the near future, with white supremacists being the most lethal threat.

“The question we’re really wrestling with is: Are there gaps?” Wiegmann told a House Appropriations subcommittee. “Is there some type of conduct that we can envision that we can’t cover or would it be an otherwise benefit in having something else other than what we’re having now?”

‘Cancer’ on U.S.

Currently, no U.S. law lets the government designate domestic extremists as terrorists or bring specific charges for domestic terrorism. That contrasts with laws to combat international terrorism, which allow the government to designate groups and bring charges for providing those groups with material support.

It’s a gap that some law enforcement and intelligence officials say should be closed.

“This is a cancer on our country,” said Democratic Representative Matt Cartwright of Pennsylvania, chairman of the subcommittee. “Right-wing extremist attacks and plots have greatly outnumbered those from all other groups combined and caused more deaths as well.”

However, opposition to creating a specific domestic terrorism law has been voiced from groups spanning the political spectrum — from civil liberties advocates to conservatives. They contend a new law isn’t needed and could be used to violate the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens.

The Justice Department recently took other steps to better address the threat of domestic terrorism.

In March, for example, the department directed U.S. attorney’s offices across the country to notify headquarters in Washington about investigations and cases that are related to domestic extremism, Wiegmann said. The effort is intended to ensure the department has the ability to identify and internally track investigations and prosecutions involving the threat, he said.

Terrorism ‘Exporter’

Although U.S. lawmakers have traditionally worried about foreign terrorist organizations and extremist ideologies radicalizing Americans, a senior State Department official told a different House panel Thursday that the U.S. is now seen as an “exporter.”

Foreign partners are raising concerns through diplomatic channels that Americans are exporting racially and ethnically motivated violence, John Godfrey, acting coordinator for counterterrorism at the Department of State, told House Homeland Security Committee members.

“What we’re increasingly seeing evidence of is concern about the flow going the other way,” he said.

The Gateway Pundit explained:

The Biden Justice Department is “actively considering” whether to give prosecutors new authorities to bring specific charges against “domestic terrorists.”

“One of the things we’re looking at is would we need new authorities,” Brad Wiegmann, deputy assistant attorney general for the department’s national security division, said Thursday.

Because the current laws on the books to bring charges for arson, violations of weapons or explosives laws isn’t enough.

The reality is the DOJ is looking to make new laws to persecute people with whom they politically disagree.

The Justice Department did not mention BLM terrorists or Antifa terrorists; they are focused on so-called “white supremacists” – which is just code for Trump supporters/conservatives.

The FBI said white supremacists pose the most lethal threat despite the fact that BLM and Antifa have caused billions in damage, killed dozens of people and burned countless buildings to the ground over the last year.

Bloomberg reported that Wiegmann told a House Appropriations subcommittee that the one question the DOJ is wrestling with is: “Are there gaps?”

“Is there some type of conduct that we can envision that we can’t cover or would it be an otherwise benefit in having something else other than what we’re having now?” Wiegmann said, admitting the DOJ is looking to politically persecute conservatives.

“Currently, no U.S. law lets the government designate domestic extremists as terrorists or bring specific charges for domestic terrorism. That contrasts with laws to combat international terrorism, which allow the government to designate groups and bring charges for providing those groups with material support.” Bloomberg reported.

“This is a cancer on our country,” said Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-PA), chairman of the subcommittee. “Right-wing extremist attacks and plots have greatly outnumbered those from all other groups combined and caused more deaths as well.”

Again, no mention of BLM or Antifa terrorists and no mention of black on black violence that kills hundreds of blacks every year in Chicago.

Not a word about blacks attacking Asians. The Biden regime is specifically hunting down white people.
