Security For New Year’s Celebrations Raised Over FBI Warning

What could the FBI possibly be warning about? And whom?

Authorities beef up security for New Years Eve celebrations across US after FBI warnings

Americans and travelers who are planning to see the Times Square ball drop in person on New Year’s Eve will be surrounded by heightened security measures in the hours ahead of and after ringing in 2024, according to New York Gov. Kathy Hochul. New York State Police will ramp up staffing and state troopers, and the New York National Guard and other agencies will join in to patrol some areas.

The move comes after the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other federal agencies warned police departments across the country about potential threats to large crowds celebrating the holiday, including from lone actors motivated by the Israel-Hamas war.

Public safety agencies are increasing security across the nation ahead of New Year’s Eve celebrations following the FBI alert. In Las Vegas, where hundreds of thousands of people are expected to gather to celebrate the holiday, for example, police said they are heightening security by mobilizing a bomb squad and hazmat teams and using low-level helicopter flights.

The FBI, Department of Homeland Security and National Counterterrorism Center cautioned police agencies and the American public in their alert earlier this month about potential safety threats during New Year’s Eve gatherings. They cited “ongoing tension between Israel and Hamas” and an increase in hate crimes across the nation as grounds for the warning.

“Lone actors may seek to disrupt or escalate violence at large gatherings, high profile events, or symbolic or religious locations throughout the winter. Such gatherings could become a convenient target for those inspired to commit violence against Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and Arab communities,” the FBI said in its advisory.

In other words, despite the “It’s about everyone!” language, this is about pro-Hamas people committing acts of violence against Jews, as has mostly been the case since Hamas attacked Jews on October 7th. And about the pro-Hamas demonstrators causing issues during the New Year’s celebration, just like they did before Christmas and on Christmas day. Why do we keep letting in, and bringing in, people who side with terrorists? Who hate Jews? Who are terrorist sympathizers, who back radical, extremist Islam?

None of the warnings are specific, at least for the open advisory, but, cities across the country are increasing security, primarily because of the pro-Hamas demonstrators. This is where we are at in 2023.

    Last year under the Biden’s War to Increase Crime. Homicides fell 13%
    And another zero deaths by terrorism

    • Genocide Joe the commie says:

      First of all, you need to explain to me what the president of the United states has to do with the rate of homicides. Is the president now running all local police departments, and state prisons? Is the president determining who gets thrown into prison for committing crimes? Other of course than all us horrible insurrectionists that have to be dealt with.

      And I don’t know where you’re getting your zero deaths by terrorism but just last month 1500 Israelis were killed by terrorists in one incident alone. Seems that terrorism just had a major push. And frankly I don’t see genocide Joe doing anything for or against terrorism.
