Under the old color-coded “Terrorism Alert” system, there was always an “elevated” risk of terrorist attack, kind of like Lake Wobegon, where all the children are above average. But starting on April 7 2011 a new system was put in place in which the United States Government would put away its general colors and instead issue particular alerts when particular terrorist threats arose. The United States Government would make a Facebook post of its alert here. The government would issue a Tweet here. All current and archived alerts would be posted to this web page.
As you can see at each one of those locations, in the entire 631 days since the new National Terrorism Advisory System was put in place there has not been a single alert posted.
Keep this in mind as the U.S. Senate votes today to strip you of your constitutional freedom from unreasonable search and seizure. The Senate says it has to do this in order to save you from the terrorist attacks… that don’t exist.
