    The Department of Homeland Security said it will be on 'heightened alert' this July 4th weekend for white supremacists looking to exploit states' rollback of COVID-19 restrictions and attack a range of possible targets, officials told DailyMail.com.  The warning comes as officials say they've been monitoring a spike in online chatter that could indicate white supremacist-motivated attacks.  Homeland Security issued a National Terrorism Alert System (NTAS) Bulletin, which it it said it won't release to the public at this time, but ABC News obtained it.  'In recent weeks, domestic violent extremists (DVEs) motivated by various violent ideologies have continued to advocate violence and plan attacks,' the bulletin said, according to ABC News. 'As of 16 June, racially or ethnically motivated violent extremist-white supremacists (RMVE-WSs) were sharing downloadable links to a publication discussing targeting mass gatherings, critical infrastructure and law enforcement officers,' it said. The Fourth of July weekend will likely have the highest number of large gatherings in 15 months, with more than 30 states rolling back nearly all of its COVID-19 restrictions.   Secretary Of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas...

    US security agencies are keep a close eye on two Iranian warships that may be headed toward Venezuela.  An Iranian frigate and a former oil tanker known as the Makran are currently sailing south along the east coast of Africa, anonymous sources told Politico on Saturday.  Intelligence officials remain mystified by Iran's motivations with the two vessels and they are unsure what kind of cargo they may be holding. However, if the ships do end up in Venezuela it could be a sign Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is trying to intimidate Washington.  The 755-foot long Makrtan was commissioned this year. Iranian officials have boasted of the its missile and weapons capabilities, and it can allegedly carry up to six helicopters.  Both Iran and Venezuela are under heavy sanctions from the United States, and they have become closer allies in recent years.  US security agencies are keep a close eye on two Iranian naval vessels that may be headed toward Venezuela. The former oil tanker, Makran, is one of two ships currently sailing south along the east coast of Africa Iran...
    Security officers at the Department of Commerce searched staff offices at night and ran keyword searches of their emails as they looked for signs of foreign influence, according to a report that revealed how its investigations unit behaved more like a counterintelligence operation. The Investigations and Threat Management Service also trawled social media accounts looking for criticism of the census as it collected intelligence on hundreds of people, according to five investigators. The office had 'been allowed to operate far outside the bounds of federal law enforcement norms and has created an environment of paranoia and retaliation at the department,' John Costello, a former deputy assistant secretary of intelligence and security at Commerce under President Trump, told the Washington Post. Former investigators, supervisors and contractors said operations were often carried out on the whim of career supervisor George D. Lee, who led the unit for a decade.  Officers from the Investigations and Threat Management Services launched a probe into a 68-year-old retiree, one of a number of social media accounts flagged after posting negative comments about the Census, which...
    The New York Times A Teacher Marched to the Capitol. When She Got Home, the Fight Began. SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. — Word got around when Kristine Hostetter was spotted at a public mask-burning at the San Clemente pier, and when she appeared in a video sitting onstage as her husband spoke at a QAnon convention. People talked when she angrily accosted a family wearing masks near a local surfing spot, her granddaughter in tow. Even in San Clemente, a well-heeled redoubt of Southern California conservatism, Hostetter stood out for her vehement embrace of both the rebellion against COVID-19 restrictions and the stolen-election lies pushed by former President Donald Trump. This was, after all, a teacher so beloved that each summer parents jockeyed to get their children into her fourth grade class. But it was not until Hostetter’s husband posted a video of her marching down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the Capitol on Jan. 6 that her politics collided with an opposite force gaining momentum in San Clemente: a growing number of left-leaning parents and students who, in the wake of the...
    The forces tasked with protecting the seat of Congress on Wednesday reported a threat. “We have obtained information which shows a possible plan by an identified militia to force entry into the Capitol on March 4,” police warned, claiming to be “prepared for any potential threats.” After this alert, the House of Representatives advanced to Wednesday evening two votes scheduled for Thursday, which will allow its some 430 parliamentarians not to return to the hemicycle before next week. On the other hand, the Senate will be in session from noon, under even reinforced security. Members of the QAnon conspiracy movement, who have never accepted Joe Biden’s victory, believe that March 4 will see Donald Trump invested as president of the United States for a second term. As that date approached, police were closely monitoring calls for a rally by pro-Trump protesters these days, in a country still reeling from the Jan.6 attack. Police say they have “already significantly increased security” on Capitol Hill since the January coup, when hundreds of Donald Trump supporters invaded Congress headquarters while parliamentarians certified...

    Ecobee has updated its SmartCamera home security camera with a few new features that make it easier to use as a baby monitor. The new Baby Monitor mode, which is enabled during setup of the camera, adjusts the camera’s settings to dim the LED lights on the front, makes it harder to accidentally enable the camera’s Siren alarm, and, perhaps most importantly, adds an audio-only streaming option that lets you continue to listen for disruptions even if you switch to a different app or lock your phone. Using a home security camera as a baby monitor is hardly a new idea, but this is the first one to my knowledge that actually makes it easier to do so. While traditional video monitors provide an always-on feed to a dedicated screen, home security cameras require the use of your phone and an app, which can be slow to load and cumbersome to use. Ecobee’s audio streaming mode effectively turns the camera and your phone into an always-on audio monitor, from which you can then tap into the app to check the...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Friday that the White House is “monitoring” unrest in Portland and Seattle, but did not comment on the violence. “We had our team on the ground or national security team even before 12:01 early in the morning on inauguration day, because we wanted to be able to monitor events happening across the country and any unrest that was a resulting from the last couple of weeks,” Psaki said. Psaki was asked if President Joe Biden had a comment on recent violence in Oregon and Washington. “I haven’t spoken with him specifically about those events, but it is something our national security team Liz Sherwood-Randall, our homeland security adviser, is closely monitoring,” Psaki said. “But if we have an additional update, I’m happy to provide it to you.” Riots erupted in Portland and Seattle on Wednesday night after protesters confronted police. Protesters openly condemned Biden at two demonstrations and multiple rioters defaced and smashed the windows of a local Democratic Party headquarters.

    Feeling secure at home is a priority for many people. Many people consider installing security systems in their homes to improve their sense of well-being. Whether one owns or rents, individuals may be surprised to learn that do-it-yourself security systems can be savvy investments. The right system can help people protect their belongings and their families, but sorting through the various security systems on the market can be a daunting task.

Professional installation and monitoring will likely cost more than DIY kits. How large is the home? Are you tech-savvy? How frequently are you out of the home on vacation or extended trips?

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The University of Minnesota says it’s closely monitoring security around the Twin Cities campus following reports of potential unrest surrounding the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. In a statement to students, faculty and staff, administrators said the university will have a close eye on a security in the coming days, sending out alerts should concerns arise. Officials urged students and staff to remain alert to their surroundings and stay safe. The heightened concerns stem from last week’s deadly mob attack on the U.S. Capitol Building, when a group of President Donald Trump supporters stormed the building as Biden’s election win was being certified. Earlier this week, the FBI warned that armed protests were being planned at state capitol buildings across the country leading up to Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — The family of Olga Maria Calderon, a Walgreens clerk stabbed to death in Wicker Park last week, wants to know why the store had removed security despite previous robberies, and why Cook County prosecutors allowed the teen now charged with her murder to be removed from electronic monitoring on a previous burglary case. “This event has shattered our families, has left my children without a mother, and left me without the most important person in my life,” said Calderon’s husband, Israel Alvarado III. “This could have been prevented if people cared, if people weren’t so involved in their own agendas. There are so many dominoes that fell that led to this event that should not have even been in place.” Frank Sommario, a partner at Romanucci & Blandin, the law firm representing Alvarado, said they are investigating the case and weighing a potential lawsuit over Calderon’s death. Sommario said the law firm has learned the same Walgreens where Calderon worked was robbed in February, and hired a security guard, but that security was removed in March. He also...
