The FBI: The American Gestapo?
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, there was a popular television show on ABC which aired on Sunday evenings. It was all about an agency of government that was at that time considered the gold standard of integrity, efficiency, and moral rectitude. It was about an agency that young boys aspired to join in their quest to become G-Men. It was about fighting criminals and communists. It was called the FBI.
Sadly, that great agency of law enforcement no longer exists. Throughout the autocratic half-century reign of Director J. Edgar Hoover, the heroics and exploits of the FBI were legendary. Although Hoover was himself highly controversial and could be heavy-handed and even corrupt at times, no one doubted that he was an American patriot who loved his country and loathed her enemies.
In recent years, we have witnessed the progressive degradation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation into little more than an American version of Hitler’s dreaded Gestapo. Although there were accounts of FBI wrongdoing in the 1970s at the time of Watergate and the Church committee investigations, nothing has ever approached the magnitude of the crimes committed by this renegade, out-of-control federal bureaucracy as in recent years. We are all familiar ad nauseum with the antics of Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strozk, and Lisa Page as they plotted a coup to overthrow the duly-elected President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. Their nefarious actions during the Trump Administration with their fake Russian dossiers and “insurance policies” should have landed the leadership of the FBI long prison terms – or worse – for treason against the Government of the United States of America whose Constitution they swore to uphold.
Since January 6, the FBI has been engaged in a nationwide witch-hunt to track down, prosecute, and imprison thousands of innocent Americans who peacefully gathered at the U.S. Capitol ( bought and paid for with their tax dollars ) to protest the highly questionable results of the November 3 election. Many individuals have been rounded up and held without charge. Some individuals have had their doors broken down in the dead of night. These are all American citizens who engaged in non-violent protest at the Capitol, fully within their First Amendment rights. The only violence that day came from the Capitol Police and professional agitators stirred up by FBI agent provocateurs who were seeded throughout the crowds with the purpose of stirring up trouble. Of course, these unconstitutional actions by the FBI are nothing new. For several decades now, the FBI has been using a carefully-constructed cover of fighting “terrorism” by initiating or aiding acts of terror themselves.
Remember the 1993 World Trade Center bombing? We now know that the FBI was actively working with a former Egyptian army officer named Emad Salem to penetrate circles of Islamic extremists who were charged in the bombing. According to Salem, the FBI could have stopped the bombing which killed six people and injured 1000 but failed to do so.
In 2012, a study was conducted by the Center on National Security at Fordham Law School. The researchers at Fordham concluded that EVERY SINGLE ONE of the 138 terrorist incidents recorded in the U.S. between 2001 and 2012 involved FBI informants playing leading roles in the planning and execution of these incidents, including supplying the weapons and recruiting the actual terrorists! According to The Nation:
“Nearly every major post-9/11 terrorism-related prosecution has involved a sting operation, at the center of which is a government informant. In these cases, the informants….have crossed the line from merely observing potential criminal behavior to encouraging and assisting people to participate in plots that are largely scripted by the FBI itself. Under the FBI’s guiding hand, the informants provide the weapons, suggest the targets and even initiate the inflammatory political rhetoric that later elevates the charges to the level of terrorism.”
The attacks of September 11, 2001 led to major changes in the mission of the FBI. Its focus shifted from law enforcement to domestic terrorism surveillance, prevention, disruption and entrapment. We learned through investigative journalist Edward Spannaus that the Bureau has engaged in such actions as producing its own terrorist training videos, aggressively pushing ideas of violent jihad, and actively colluding with known terrorists to the point of detonating bombs as trial runs for planned attacks. In Brooklyn in 2012, an FBI agent posing as an al-Qaeda operative supplied a target with fake explosives for a 1,000-pound bomb, which the FBI’s victim then attempted to detonate outside the Federal Reserve building in Manhattan. In Irvine, California, in 2007, an FBI informant was so aggressive in trying to entrap members of a local Islamic Center into violence that the mosque went to court and secured a restraining order against the FBI mole. In still another case out of Pittsburgh, Khalifa Ali al-Akili accused a longtime FBI informant named Shaden Hussain of trying to entrap him by recruiting him to buy a gun and go to Pakistan for training.
Sadly, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is no longer the world’s greatest law enforcement agency. It has degenerated into a gaggle of crooks, coup-makers, and corrupt political hacks who have now turned their guns on the American people. With the Biden regime and the politically-compromised Department of Justice now declaring war on political dissent nationwide and associating such dissent with “domestic terrorism” and “white nationalism,” expect the FBI to unleash an unprecedented dragnet against innocent Americans trying to exercise their First Amendment rights. There is no room for free speech, free assembly or any other freedoms in Biden’s Amerika.
Why is so much information about the bizarre events of January 6 being withheld from the American people? Why have 14,000 hours of film footage never been released to the public? Why do we still not know who killed Trump supporter and military veteran Ashli Babbitt, six months after her murder? Why is the FBI spying on 16,000 Americans?
Our Libertarian friends have long argued that all the organs of the American Police State from the Department of Homeland Security to the FBI, CIA, and BATF need to be shut down if we are to restore our Constitutional liberties. Is it finally time to admit that they are probably right?
