Keeping Fear Alive: As DHS shutdown looms, Jeh Johnson Issues Terror Warning To Mall of America Customers

Just as the DHS congressional Feb 27th budget deadline and possible shutdown nears, a conveniently timed new domestic terror alert was issued today by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson. Two weeks ago Jeh Johnson also warned that a lapse in funding would cause a “terrible disruption,” and “A shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security in these times is frankly too bitter to contemplate, but we have to contemplate it,”

Could this be another politically motivated scare tactic being used against the US Congress and the American people?

Well... It was not too long ago that Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge admitted in his book The Test of Our Times, that he “was pushed to raise the security alert on the eve of President Bush’s re-election.”

The NY Daily News in 2004 found that:

Ashcroft’s Justice Department rolled out terrorism announcements frequently to give Bush a boost in the polls against Democrat John Kerry. Ridge’s first hint that Bush political aides were leveraging fear of terror attacks — an issue where Bush polled well — came in May 2004. Ashcroft and FBI Director Robert Mueller held a press conference to warn about American-Al Qaeda Adam Gadahn and other suspects. 
CNN Reports from Jeh Johnson's appearance today:
Shoppers at the Mall of America need to be "particularly careful" after a terror group singled out the Minnesota super-mall for attacks, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says...

"If anyone is planning to go to the Mall of America today, they've got to be particularly careful," Johnson said. "There will be enhanced security there, but public vigilance, public awareness and public caution in situations like this is particularly important, and it's the environment we're in, frankly."

His comments come as the Mall of America implements new security measures -- some of which the mall said in a statement would be noticeable to shoppers.
It is very possible that Jeh is just taking a page from the Former FBI assistant director that in a new documentary film explains that "to keep budgets high, we must ‘keep fear alive’
