CNN National Security Analyst Juliette Kayyem said the Biden Department of Justice’s lawfare against former President Donald Trump is not enough to defeat him and called on the Department of Homeland Security to meddle in the election to stop Trump from winning.

On Saturday, Trump warned Americans of an economic “bloodbath” in the auto industry if Biden wins a second term.

“China now is building a couple of massive plants where they’re going to build the cars in Mexico,” Trump said during an Ohio rally. “[China thinks] that they’re going to sell those cars into the United States with no tax at the border.”

“We’re going to put a 100% tariff on every single car that comes across the line, and you’re not going to be able to sell those cars — if I get elected,” the former president continued. “Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath.”

Democrats and the media, however, cut the clip to suggest the former president was simply saying there would “be a bloodbath” if he lost. All over TV screens and social media last weekend, they spread the deliberately false disinformation narrative that Trump had called for a violent “bloodbath” if he loses.

Kayyem fired off an alarming — yet telling — post on X in which she admitted the DOJ’s unrelenting campaign to jail Trump is failing to influence the election enough to make Trump lose. Kayyem is a former Obama administration DHS official, a current advisor to an Israeli surveillance company, and a former DOJ official.

“It is good Biden is talking about the threat to our democracy coming from the violence Trump promises. We have a whole department created to address terrorism. And it would be nice to hear a plan about protecting our homeland security. DOJ is not built for this,” the Arab-American daughter of Lebanese immigrants wrote.

Kayyem then proposed “a very transparent planning process that engages local and state governments who manage elections.”

“This plan would provide transparency on threats, a crisis response capacity, recommended rules of deployment for public safety resources, a civilian strike type team that can address violence in real time and provide information to the public and media, etc.,” she wrote.

Kayyem continued to argue that “states and localities” cannot be trusted to “handle this on their own” and called for the DHS to immediately begin planning.

These would be additional measures to the multiple layers of election interference already in place. While DHS is already actively working to undermine the election on behalf of Democrats, the media is also deliberately perpetuating the “bloodbath” lie to meddle in the election.

MSNBC disingenuously headlined an article: “Trump says there will be a ‘bloodbath’ if he loses the election” while NPR ran a piece: “Trump says some migrants are ‘not people’, and warns of ‘bloodbath’ if he loses,” with The New York Times running a near identical headline. The Rolling Stone published “Trump Says There Will Be a ‘Bloodbath’ and Elections Will End If He Isn’t Reelected.”

Left-wing legacy media deceptively edited a clip to accuse Trump of political violence and make an immediate determination of guilt in the court of public opinion. That meets the definition of disinformation: deliberately spreading false information to mislead the public. This is the type of press Benjamin Franklin warned about, one in which “the accused is allowed no grand jury of the truth of the accusation before it is publicly made.”

Franklin, writing an analysis of the press entitled “An Account of the Supreme Court of Judicature in Pennsylvania, viz. The Court of the Press,” continued: “The proceedings are also sometimes so rapid, that an honest good citizen may find himself suddenly and unexpectedly accused, and in the same morning judges and condemned, and sentence pronounced against him, That he is a rogue and a villain.
