Voters living in the Republican stronghold of Kansas City, Missouri suburbs discovered something disturbing in their mailboxes on Monday: A message from an extremist group who claim they are targeting supporters of President Donald Trump during the upcoming election.
Matt Schlapp, the Chairman of the American Conservative Union, posted a picture of the flyer on Monday morning, captioning the Twitter post: “These fliers are being left in Kansas City neighborhoods. This on top of former KS National Committeeman getting run over on his yard due to his Trump sign. Please pray that America will reject this violence and hate.”
The picture shows a letter, which opens with “Dear Neighbor,” and the letter’s recipient has been identified “as being a Trump supporter” by an unnamed extremist group.
“Your address has been added into our database as a target for when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make [sure] that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given ‘Fair Warning,’” the letter continues.
The unnamed extremist group ends their threat with: “Always remember, that it was ‘you’ who started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy.”
“I’m hopeful they are ready to face consequences of their actions quickly. We cannot continue to let these people rule and rant in the streets of our country,” another Twitter user replied.

Another woman tweeted: “I’m hopeful they are ready to face consequences of their actions quickly. We cannot continue to let these people rule and rant in the streets of our country.”
Since the 2016 election cycle, the victorious presidential candidate Donald Trump, his White House and administration, as well as his voters and supporters have had to endure unsubstantiated news stories regarding allegations, suspicious behavior, questionable practices and actual criminal acts connected with the new administration.
In addition, the Democratic Party has turned the U.S. Constitution on its head in the left-wing’s pursuit of ousting the duly elected President Trump based on an impeachment of the true political outsider. During their pursuit of a crime with which to charge Trump, the Democrats — with their partners in the news media — have sought to confuse the American people, especially those Americans who actually trust politicians and the ladies and gentlemen working to inform the American people.
Last week, Attorney General William Barr, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan, Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, FBI Director Christopher Wray, U.S. Cyber Command Commander and National Security Agency (NSA) Director Gen. Paul Nakasone, and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Director Christopher Krebs released the following joint press statement:
“On Tuesday, dozens of states and local jurisdictions hosted their own elections across the country and, in November 2020, Americans will go to the polls and cast their votes in the 2020 presidential election, as well as hundreds of elections for both houses of the U.S. Congress.
“Election security is a top priority for the United States government and we have increased the level of support to state and local election officials in their efforts to protect elections. The federal government is prioritizing the sharing of threat intelligence and providing support and services that improve the security of election infrastructure across the nation,” according to a Justice Department statement.
According to the leaders listed above, “The U.S. government is working with all 50 states and U.S. territories, local officials, and private sector partners to identify threats, broadly share information, and protect the democratic process. We remain firm in our commitment to quickly share timely and actionable information, provide support and services, and to defend against any threats to our democracy.”
U.S. government adversaries seek to undermine U.S. democratic institutions, influence voters’ sentiment, and have an affect U.S. government policies.
Russia, China, Iran, and other nations or non-government enemies all will seek to — for one reason of another — interfere in the voting process or influence voter perceptions.
A number of adversaries may attempt to achieve their goal of victory through a variety of means, including social media campaigns, directing disinformation operations, or conducting disruptive or destructive cyberattacks on state and local infrastructure.
The civil unrest that has engulfed many U.S. cities in the aftermath of police officers killing black criminal suspects. Some cops believe these uprisings are a dry-run for a national rebellion should Trump be re-elected.
