Is the FBI politicized? C’mon Man!

Good day Kahny,

I hope today finds you well at your desk, as the Executive Editor at that beacon of truthful reporting, the iconic NY Times. Wow, so much has transpired since we last spoke. I believe last time we spoke was around the 4th of July holiday. I know you’re not to big a fan of that one Kahny, as you are a big supporter of the CCP, as displayed by your publicity shots. You remember those right? You in your stocking feet, reading Pravda on your office floor, with your CCP coffee cup. I’m just curious, has anyone been fired yet for running with that idea…..ouch! I digress, last time we spoke, we were talking about the 1/6 reality show produced by Chardonnay Pelosi and company. Much has happened since then, let’s take a look.

The Mission is to Get Trump!

Personally, I agree with other liberals, as I don’t believe enough time and TAXPAYER money has been spent yet on prosecuting elected President Trump. I think he is getting off the hook rather lightly, wouldn’t you agree, stocking feet? I’m appalled at your tabloid though, because every once in a while there has been a negative article about Joey Bidenflation. We should be concentrating on putting out the usual 8-10 articles attacking President Trump; not attacking the greatest puppet, since Jimmy Carter. Has the radical right infiltrated your own newsroom Kahny! Or, is there a change in the works? We reached out to Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein to inquire about this but he was busy sailing off the coast of his Martha’s Vineyard estate. No wait, it might have been that he was surfing off his Hawaiian Island coastal estate. No, no I think he was just relaxing at his Washington mansion, with Michael (word is he gets his stock tips from Chardonnay and big Paulie Pelosi), hence the multiple mansions.
Anyway, we couldn’t reach the great unifier to see if the shift away from Brandon is in the works.

How Conservatives (and most people) See Things

Now back to President Trump. It appears Conservatives have a different take on things Kahny. It seems the latest attempt to get justice was to have the FBI raid his personal residence in Florida, and their decision to do so is just a little bit suspect. I believe the latest was something about him holding classified nuclear secrets (to work with Putin, of course). Seems reasonable right Kahny? We got him this time!

Propaganda at its Finest

Conservatives point out these facts : two bogus debunked impeachments, wasn’t enough. Nonstop propaganda for 6 years by such stalwarts of journalistic integrity like your tabloid Pravda, WAPO, CNN, MSNBC, ABC NBC, CBS and the like, wasn’t enough. How about the Russian collusion hoax for over 3 years, which led back to Hildabeast Clinton, that wasn’t enough. How about your former hero (and one time potential candidate for Democratic nomination to be president) Michael Avenatti and his client Stormy Daniels. That is the same Michael Avenatti who is currently serving time in prison. The censorship by social media to address Hunter Biden’s (former crack addict/energy expert, who is now a world famous artist) laptop. Claiming said laptop was Russian disinformation, which as we ALL know now was a lie, that wasn’t enough. The AG Billy Barr, sitting on this information, saying “he didn’t want to influence an election.“ Well Billy Boy you definitely did, you and Georgie Soros, Billy Gates, and some 2,000 mules.

Let’s Plan some Anarchy

Let’s look at some other events. How about, “mostly peaceful riots,” in Democratic bastions for a year straight leading up to the 2020 election, to project anarchy. Funny, huh Kahny, no outrage or disharmony since the Liar-in-Chief was installed………simply amazing. Look at all the money Georgie Soros has saved, by not having to recruit protestors, good for him. How about “Dr.” Fraudci and and the well orchestrated plandemic, and mandated “vaccine.” Remember Kahny, there is no autoimmunity, social distancing, masks, the “plandemic of the unvaccinated.” All now debunked. But it sure did facilitate the very trustworthy mail in voting agenda. Even the vegetable occupying the White House has gotten it…..TWICE, and this buffoon had both shots and 2 boosters. I‘m surprised Joey didn’t just take Covid behind the gym and beat the hell out of it. Don’t you just love Joey’s little fairytales Kahny?

Andy Cuomo: A Heart of Gold

Let’s not forget Democratic cities extended shutdowns to cripple the economy and kill small businesses. You know, like Andy “I sexually harass women, because I’m Italian” Cuomo did. This of course was when he wasn’t busy sending seniors to their deaths instead of using a Navy hospital ship—you know, just to spite President Trump. Ah, what’s a few old people dying in order spite Trump, oh I don’t know, some estimate 15,000. But ole Andy said he wouldn’t put his dear sweet Mother Matilda in senior facilities due to the virus, saying this 2 MONTHS before his March 2020 directive barring said places from turning away infected hospital patients from being admitted to these facilities. What a sweet conscientious son little Andy is, brings a tear to my eye. We all know now that these extended shutdowns did nothing, except try and portray a nation in turmoil in an election year.

A Special Shout Out to Pravda (NY Times)

It all seemed like a well thought out coordinated attack. Most Americans believe these are the kinds of coordinated attacks that would come from our enemies……..not from our OWN country. Evidently, a majority of American people have found out they’ve been wrong. Conservatives point out that the media played a major part in where we are today stocking feet Kahn, so I would guess AG Sulzberger (your publisher at Pravda) owes you a big bonus for your objective, unbiased and apolitical (wink, wink) reporting. Such journalistic integrity! Always remember, President Trump is a racist!

The White House does it’s Best Sgt. Shultz: “I Know Nothing”

But, we have a whole new chapter to add to this disgrace of a regime under the installed puppet. We now have brown shirts, I’m sorry the FBI raiding a former Presidents house over a year and a half after he left office. Apparently, the White House knew nothing of this raid. I’m back Kahny, I had to take a break to clean the coffee off my floor, after it came shooting out of my nose, due to laughing. Conservatives want to know, if this installed administration thinks the American people are as mentally addled as the sock puppet Brandon? Just wait until they add those 87,000 ARMED IRS agents.

“Dr.” Jilly Bean Expands her Wardrobe

What was it again classified nuclear secrets? Too, too funny. What are they worried about, General “treason is my game” Milley will give a heads up to China (Joey’s pals) or any other enemies for that matter. Or, was that only in place when elected President Trump was in office and now rescinded under the houseplant installed in the White House. Rumor is they raided Melania’s wardrobe, so they could get “Dr.” Jilly bean some tasteful dresses. She has been getting flak for dressing up in Thanksgiving tablecloths. Word on the street is Target and Kohls are running low ahead of the holidays due to her constant demand.

So, you can see Kahny, why America is a tad suspect about this latest charade….just a tad. Well, we’ll have to see what the brown shirts (sorry, I keep doing that), the FBI plant, I mean find, in these boxes. Early reports are one of the larger boxes contained Jimmy Hoffa, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. I always knew it had to be President Trump, I just knew it. Word is Jeffery Toobin formally of CNN was rushing there to confirm, but was busy right now on a zoom call.

The Possibilities are Endless

This story will have to do until Chardonnay’s kangaroo court starts up again next month. Wow, right before the midterms, incredible timing, huh (wink, wink). This was losing steam anyway Kahny, hence the raid ordered by Mary Garland, and the warrant signed off on by highly reputable (Barry/Barack Hussein supporter/donator) “Judge” Reinhardt. I don’t know what we’ll do if this last coup fails. What can we blame him for next—the Brinks job, Patty Hearst kidnapping, the Manson murders, the Hindenburg, the Titanic? Ya see stocking feet Kahn, the possibilities are endless. Who says the DOJ and the FBI, are being politicized and weaponized……….that is just crazy talk!

Well, Kahny some of these things do seem to be ridiculous accusations…..sort of like your NY Times reporting style. What was that again, “printing all the news fit to print,” the mantra of your tabloid…..you know Kahny, that may be the funniest and most ridiculous statement in this entire letter. Talk to you soon buddy.

Oh, one more tidbit: Brandon says inflation is now 0%. Financial networks and economists still have it at 8.5%. Oh that Joey and his fables, isn’t he precious. Funny no mention of this ridiculous glaring gaffe (lie) in your tabloid………..shocking!

Sincerely,

Government Led by Democrats Is Organized, State Sanctioned Crime

Here’s a huge news story the media censored.

ATF special agent resigns, cites lack of criminal accountability in laws.

Colorado Springs ATF special agent resigns, cites lack of criminal accountability in laws

By: Sean Rice KRDO | August 14, 2022 |

A special agent for the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tabacco, Firearms, and Explosives) in Colorado Springs has resigned after 18 years of service. In his resignation letter obtained by 13 Investigates, Brandon Garcia says he cannot support the way criminals are being handled by the current government.

The ATF is a federal law enforcement agency within the Department of Justice. ATF has a field offices in Denver and Colorado Springs.

[ … ]

Garcia, who according to his resignation letter has served in law enforcement for 18 years, has concerns about the over 5,000 ATF agents nationally.

“The last time morale was this low with ATF was probably 2013-2016,” Garcia said. “Over the last couple of years, ATF has been spending a significant amount of time talking about and changing the course of this agency to focus on ‘the gun’. Frankly, I don’t really care about investigating the gun, I care about investigating the criminal, and then plucking that criminal out of society.”

[ … ]

Garcia said he became an ATF agent to make the streets of Colorado safer. He believes people take a career in law enforcement to protect law-abiding citizens.

“For at least the last decade, the government has focused on holding police accountable. I agree, that we do need to be held accountable. But everyone needs to be held accountable for their actions, not just the police. Who is holding the criminal accountable? Who’s holding the politicians accountable,” Garcia questioned.

He says his belief is that law enforcement officers are often questioning their “use of force” in today’s day and age. He worries that people expect words to stop violence. However, he says only violence stops violence when dealing with violent criminals, the resignation letter states.

“Violence is the only language these violent criminals understand. If you have not experienced that type of evil on the streets or while conducting your investigations, you are investigating the wrong people,” Garcia said. “They are out there, and they will kill you without thinking twice.”

The special agent says he agrees with the sentiment that gun crimes are “out of control.” However, the letter states that he believes taking away citizens’ guns will not help. Rather, he says democrat-led states are not holding criminals, who perpetuate gun crimes, accountable.

“Fewer and fewer defendants associated with gun crimes are actually sentenced to prison. Additionally, violent crimes committed with firearms are consistently pled down to non-violent crimes and the defendant again avoids prison,” Garcia said. “If there is no consequence to committing a crime, then why would a criminal stop? If guns were banned, why would the criminals actually agree to abide by the law,” he questioned.

In the letter, Garcia said he worries about the number of violent criminals being released from both state and federal custody.

“This year alone, our office has had more violent federal defendants released following their detention hearing than I have seen in my entire career. That is saying something because I have never had to fight so hard just to get violent offenders prosecuted,” Garcia said. “Especially in the past two years, it seems like jails and prisons can’t let people out fast enough. I wonder why violent crime is up.”

According to the Common Sense Institute, violent crime in Colorado in 2020 was 35% higher than in 2011. Additionally, the average monthly crime rate in 2021 is 28% higher than it was in 2011 and 15% higher than it was only two years ago in 2019 in Colorado.

“The problem is that we don’t hold criminals accountable for their actions anymore. I have spent the majority of my career working violent crimes. I learned a long time ago that you do not combat violent crime by seizing firearms; you combat violent crime by locking up violent criminals for a really long time,” Garcia said. “Not just a really long time on paper, a long time behind actual prison bars; like we used to do it before legislators and members of the judicial system decided to neglect their oath.”

Garcia said he knows ATF agents at the Colorado Springs office are doing all they can to deter violent crime and keep people safe. However, he says nowadays prosecuting criminals comes down to a “roll of the dice.”

“Since I can no longer do this job the way I think it needs to be done and have the appropriate level of success, then it is time for me to fight this fight from a different angle,” Garcia said in the letter.

JK Rowling Gets Islamic DEATH THREAT Warning Her ‘You Are Next’ After Rushdie Is Stabbed and Mutilated

And still the media and the information police censors, protects the motive – Islam.

The would-be killer posts to Twitter while I am banned.

They’ve won.

JK Rowling gets a death threat from Iran-supporting Islamist extremist telling her ‘you are next’ after she backed stabbed author Salman Rushdie – while his attacker is charged with attempted murder in US

  • British author JK Rowling has received a death threat from an Islamist based in Pakistan
  • Harry Potter writer said on Twitter: ‘Horrifying news. Feeling very sick right now. Let him be ok’
  • She received the chilling reply from Pakistani extremist: ‘Don’t worry you are next’
  • Rowling, 57, has been pilloried in public ever since she objected to the term ‘people who menstruate’
  • Sir Salman, 75, is on a ventilator after he was stabbed multiple times by ‘Iran sympathiser’

By Jack Wright For Mailonline, 13 August 2022:

British author JK Rowling has received a vile death threat from an Iran-backing Islamist extremist who appears to have praised Salman Rushdie’s attacker, repeatedly expressed support for Tehran’s theocratic dictator, and branded Israel, Ukraine and India ‘terrorist states’.

The Harry Potter writer and free speech campaigner – who has been pilloried by trans activists for her beliefs on gender – had expressed her horror at the sickening attempt on Rushdie’s life in upstate New York when she was issued the chilling threat on Twitter.

Meer Asif Aziz, who describes himself on Twitter as a ‘student, social activist, political activist and research activist’ based in Karachi, has made tasteless ‘jokes’ about how to destroy Israel and branded it and Putin-savaged Ukraine – as well as Pakistan’s chief geopolitical rival India – ‘terrorist states’.

Aziz also appears to support the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who frequently rants about Israel in deranged, genocidal tweets. In one of Khamenei’s posts about the ‘oppressive Yazidis’, for instance, Aziz responded with a heart emoji.

And responding to another tweet from the Iranian dictator, Aziz gushed : ‘Dear leader your struggle for Islamic world will not be wasted until we young generation are with you’.

Rowling, 57, had posted last night about Rushdie’s stabbing: ‘Horrifying news. Feeling very sick right now. Let him be ok’.

Aziz, who had described Rushdie’s attacker Hadi Matar, 24, as a ‘revolutionary Shia fighter’, then threatened: ‘Don’t worry you are next’.

In a bid to get Aziz booted off Twitter, Rowling this afternoon posted: ‘@TwitterSupport any chance of some support?’. Critics have accused the social media giant of ‘double standards’ over which accounts it chooses to kick off the site. Twitter dramatically chose to shut down Donald Trump’s account after the invasion of the US Capitol by a mob wearing MAGA caps following the 2020 election – dubbed January 6 – but still allows Khamenei to make threats against Israel.

Rowling also confirmed that police are involved, telling her followers: ‘To all sending supportive messages: thank you. Police are involved (were already involved on other threats).’

MailOnline has contacted Twitter for comment.

Rowling and horror writer Stephen King are among the authors and notable faces voicing their disbelief after Rushdie, 75, was stabbed up to 15 times – including once in the neck – in upstate New York at a lecture about free speech.

The Indian-born British author, whose writing led to unprecedented death threats from Iran in the 1980s, was to deliver a lecture at the Chautauqua Institution when the incident occurred, leaving him with an apparent stab wound to the neck.

It comes as:

US law enforcement charged Rushdie’s attacker with attempted murder in the second degree. He has been transported to Chautauqua County Jail and will be arraigned later today. American officials have said that initial enquiries suggested the suspected knifeman was sympathetic to the Iranian regime;

Rushdie’s agent said that the author would likely lose one eye and has suffered damage to nerves in one of his arms and his liver;
Iranian state media gleefully praised Sir Salman’s attacker and branded the author an ‘apostate’ and ‘heretic-writer’;
Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron led condemnation of the attack, with the French President branding it an assault on liberty and saying: ‘His fight is our fight’.

Media Tries to Report on Salman Rushdie Stabbing Without Mentioning ‘Islam’

Author Salman Rushdie, who was forced to spend a chunk of his life in hiding because his book, The Satanic Verses, offended Islamic religious authorities in Iran who imposed a murder fatwa on him, was stabbed in the neck and had to be airlifted to a hospital when he was attacked on stage.

 Author Salman Rushdie, being stabbed at an event in New York State on Friday, suffered “10 to 15” blows in the attack, eyewitnesses said. One of them said she thought it was “a stunt” at first.

“This guy ran on to platform and started pounding on Mr Rushdie,” said Rabbi Charles Savenor, who was in the audience for the lecture at Chautauqua Institution, about 100 km from the city.

A reporter from AP said the attacker “punched or stabbed Mr Rushdie 10 to 15 times”.

“At first you’re like, ‘What’s going on?’ And then it became abundantly clear in a few seconds that he was being beaten,” Mr Savenor told the news agency. He said the attack lasted about 20 seconds.

The media, at least in this country, has wrapped itself in knots to avoid using the “I” word.

Back when Rushdie wrote The Satanic Verses, it was controversial. Today, any kind of criticism of Mohammed is considered hate speech and censored to such a degree that the media would not even report what an Indian elected official said about Mohammed’s pedophilic tendencies, only to denounce it as hurtful and hateful to Muslims.

Today, a new author could never publish something like that. And the media is uncomfortable even discussing what it is that Rushdie wrote.

The various condemnations likewise don’t mention Islam, Islamic terrorism or any beyond generic concepts like “freedom of expression.”

Long before this attack, the sharia censorship that Iran wanted to impose on Americans had already been achieved.

Donald J. Trump: American Hero, Martyr, Crusader for Truth, Justice and The American People

“What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country, will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now.” — President Donald J. Trump, Inaugural Address, January 20, 2017 in Washington, D.C.


It is ironic that August 15th, 2022 is the 926th anniversary of the 1st Crusade. It is ironic because for the first time in American history one man, and his family, have been relentlessly targeted by so many because of his absolute belief that power must rest in the hands of the people rather than in government. A man who believes in equal justice under the law. A man who believes that America has a legacy and destiny to be the beacon of freedom and liberty globally. That the American working class is much more worthy than members of the political and bureaucrat classes. A man who believes that God not government is supreme.

WATCH: Trump’s Virtues.

The proof of the danger of his beliefs to the political and bureaucrat ruling classes culminated in a direct attack on his home by the FBI on August 8th, 2022.

Instead of the FBI raiding the offices of the Department of Justice and retrieving Ghislaine Maxwell’s black book, Hunter Biden’s laptop and Hillary Clinton’s e-mails they went instead to Mar-a-Lago on orders from the White House. The DOJ  and FBI ignore over 570 BLM and Antifa riots, fentanyl coming across our Southern border, Chinese spying and the growing threat of drug cartels taking over entire communities.

This FBI raid is a classic case of political deflection, used when politicians come under fire for failing to deliver what they promised or enforcing the rule of law. Political deflection is a way of taking attention away from the growing number of failed policies of the political and bureaucratic elites since January 20th, 2021.

August 8th, 2022 will be remembered as the day government became the enemy of we the people.

This no longer is about one party versus another party. This is about a fight between tyranny and patriots. It is a Second American Revolution and its leader is Donald J. Trump and those who stand with him to keep the light upon the hill lit bright.

Time to Enforce The American Declaration of Independence

The American Declaration of Independence states,

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

The federal government has become destructive. Therefore it is the duty of lawabiding Americans to alter or to abolish it.

There are two ways to do this. The first is at the ballot box. However, the American people are now understanding that even the ballot box is untrustworthy and subject to fraud and manipulation. A recent report exposed that Democratic operatives are now in control of the voter rolls in 31 states.

If the American people see that their votes are being manipulated, not recorded or ballot boxes stuffed as they were in the 2020 election, e.g. 2000 Mules, then option two may come into play.

Option two is to go to the streets and begin the process of taking back the government from the bureaucrats. In others words massive but peaceful protests, like J6-21 redux, not only in Washington, D.C. but all across America.

The Corrupt Federal Autocracy

During the 2016 presidential election cycle to today we have seen the corrupt “federal autocracy” as the keys to taking down those who pose a threat to their power.

To understand watch Mark Levin’s reaction to the Trump raid ‘cover-up’ search warrant.

It began with Russiagate lead by the FBI and paid for by Clinton campaign. Then it became efforts to impeach President Trump using false documents created with the help of foreign entities and the Clintons to discredit the election. This morphed into a four year onslaught against President Trump and his policies. The fake quid-pro-quo allegations lead to further investigations and efforts to impeach Donald J. Trump.

After the tainted results of the 2020 presidential election it wasn’t enough to go after President Trump, the focus shifted to those who support him and all those who speak truth to power. From parents who raised questions about what their children are being taught is public schools at board meeting being designated as “domestic terrorists” buy the DOJ to the persecution of those who attended the January 6th D.C. rally to even those who support finding out the truth of what happened to Ashley Babbitt. The attacks have become constant and relentless. So relentless that Governor Ron DeSantis labeling what happened after the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago as a actions reminiscent of a “banana republic.”

America is at a tipping point. Our Constitutional Republic is under siege by the federal autocracy.

As English historian Lord Acton in a letter to Bishop Mandell Creighton wrote, “Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

We have reached the point where the federal autocracy had now gained nearly absolute power.

The only man who stands in the way of the federal autocracy is President Donald J. Trump.

President Trump is not the kind of man to take this sitting down. He has and will continue to put himself out in the public square. He will continue to be a beacon of power to the people.

Donald J. Trump truly is an American hero, martyr, Crusader for truth, justice and the American people.

If the federal autocracy is successful in its efforts to discredit him and we the people then we the people are next in line for purging.

This reminded us of the events of August 12th, 1952 Night of the Murdered Poets by Joseph Stalin. Lawrence W. Reed, Foundation for Economic Education President Emeritus and Humphreys Family Senior Fellow, reported,

Beginning in 1948, JAC [Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee] leaders and activists were targeted for arrest, and worse. Mikhoels was killed in a hit-and-run car “accident” on Stalin’s orders, Soviet archives revealed years later. The others were subjected to torture and brutal interrogations and ultimately charged with “counterrevolutionary crimes.” This went on for years before 15 survivors were hauled into court in May and June 1952.

The so-called “trial” lasted six weeks. It was a farce from the start, its outcome pre-determined. Authors Rubenstein, Naumov and Wolfson in their book, Stalin’s Secret Pogrom, described it as “nothing less than terror masquerading as law.” The Jewish defendants—most of whom were poets and literary figures for whom the JAC was a cause, not a full-time profession—were denied defense attorneys. Even the presiding military judge, Alexander Cheptsov, complained about the dearth of evidence but he was overruled by the higher-ups in the Communist power structure. All were found guilty. The rule of law was trampled by the law of the ruler.

During the night of August 12-13, 1952, thirteen of the prisoners were executed in Moscow’s notorious Lubyanka Prison. Another escaped death only because he collapsed, fell into a coma, and died months later. The 15th, a noted biochemist named Lina Stern, was regarded as too vital “to the State” so she got off with just 3-1/2 years in prison followed by five years in exile in Kazakhstan.

Today Trump and his followers are the new anti-Fascists. It’s Trump followers who are being held in prisons and tried on charges of treason and insurrection. They are the new patriot leaders speaking truth to the power of the federal autocracy. They are the new martyrs who have been persecuted for years now. History is repeating itself. The federal autocracy is no different than Stalin’s KGB or the East German Stasi.

The 2022 midterm elections will become the straw that could very well break the proverbial camel’s back. If Congress remains in the hands of those in the federal autocracy and its allies then Katie bar the door.

Gird your loins. It’s going to be a rough ride.

Trump denies possession of nuclear documents, suggests FBI planted Washington Post story

In a Friday morning Truth Social post, Trump denied reports that there was any classified information pertaining to nuclear weapons at Mar-a-Lago.

By: Just The News, August 12, 2022:

Former President Donald Trump on Friday pointedly denied still possessing classified documents about nuclear weapons after a Washington Post article suggested that was what FBI agents were searching for in his home. He compared the article to leaks during the 2016 election of the now-discredited Steele dossier.

Trump wrote on his social media app Truth Social, “Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more.”

“Same sleazy people involved,” he added, referring to some of the top appointees at the DOJ and FBI. “Why wouldn’t the FBI allow the inspection of areas at Mar-a-Lago with our lawyer’s [sic], or others present. Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn’t let them get even close — said ‘ABSOLUTELY NOT.’”

Trump further suggested that information may have been leaked to the media in order to portray him in a negative light following the raid.

“Planting information anyone? Reminds me of a Christofer [sic] Steele Dossier!” wrote Trump, referring to the debunked opposition research report that alleged collusion between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government.

On Thursday evening, the Washington Post reported that the FBI descended on Mar-a-Lago and rifled through the Trump’s private home for hours to find documents potentially pertaining to nuclear weapons. Sources did not tell the Post “what type of information the agents were seeking,” nor if any documents were recovered.

Also on Thursday, Attorney General Merrick Garland delivered a short statement, in which he confirmed that he had personally approved the search warrant of the Trump property and is currently working to unseal the warrant.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis: FBI Raid on Mar-a-Lago like that of a ‘Banana Republic’

Governor Ron DeSantis sent out the following statement on the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago:

The FBI’s raid of Mar-a-Lago is yet another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Why didn’t the FBI ever raid Hillary Clinton’s house after she laundered classified information through a private server and then deleted 30,000 emails that were under subpoena?

The federal Regime is targeting those it dislikes for disfavored treatment. They are demanding we get in line or face the consequences.

Now, the Regime is getting another 87,000 IRS agents to wield against its adversaries. With this addition, the agency is now larger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined, and BILLIONS of dollars are now being directed to fund these new hires. Democrats are not simply expanding an agency. They are growing their army of Biden Regime soldiers standing ready to execute any order by the D.C. Swamp.

The fact that the Left is turning taxpayer-funded government agencies into extensions of the Democrat Machine to do their political bidding right before our eyes should be alarming to every American. These are not actions indicative of leaders in a free republic. This mirrors a Banana Republic.

As your Governor, I have always been clear that the power belongs to the People — not politicians. This blatant overreach by the federal government is an attack on our democracy and the American people.

It is past time that elected representatives in Washington, D.C. stand up against this abuse of power by using the constitutional power of Congress to hold these agencies accountable. For too long these agencies have been on autopilot with no accountability. Let’s make sure they stand up for our rights. No excuses! – Stand with me

Sincerely,

Ron DeSantis

VIDEO: Biden Responsible for FBI Raid on Trump Home–Was It Illegal?

DOJ Unseals Mar-a-Lago Search Warrant

The warrant that authorized the search of former President Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago was released today following our court filing seeking release of all FBI warrant materials.

We’re pleased that our legal pressure forced the partial release of warrant materials about the Biden administration’s political raid on the home of former President Trump. We expect and demand the underlying warrant affidavit and other materials be immediately disclosed.

On August 9, we filed a motion asking the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida to unseal as soon as possible the search warrant materials used by the FBI to raid the Florida home (U.S. v. Sealed Search Warrant (No. 9:22-mj-08332)).

The Justice Department agreed that the warrant should be released in its filing:

The government hereby requests that the Court unseal the Notice of Filing and its attachment (Docket Entry 17), absent objection by former President Trump. The attachment to that Notice consists of:

  • The search warrant signed and approved by the Court on August 5, 2022, including Attachments A and B; and
  • The redacted Property Receipt listing items seized pursuant to the search, filed with the Court on August 11, 2022

The press and the public enjoy a qualified right of access to criminal and judicial proceedings and the judicial records filed therein.

Our legal pressure forced an important first step by the Biden Justice Department to disclose Attorney General Garland’s role in the abusive Trump raid.

Initially, the Albany Times Union and the New York Times joined us in filing for the unsealing of the warrant by filing an amicus letter and motion respectively. Other interests later joined in the effort.

Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart had ordered the U.S. Department of Justice to file a response to Judicial Watch’s Motion to Unseal the warrant and supporting materials behind the FBI raid of President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago by 5p.m. on August 15, 2022.

Due to multiple organizations filing to unseal the warrant, Judge Reinhart ordered that, “To avoid the need for individualized orders on any future motion(s) to unseal, it is ORDERED that the Government shall file an omnibus response to all motions to unseal …”

Yesterday, President Trump issued a public statement “ENCOURAGING the immediate release of those documents.”

Our August 9 motion stated:

Judicial Watch is investigating the potential politicization of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Justice and whether the FBI and the Justice Department are abusing their law enforcement powers to harass a likely future political opponent of President Biden.

[ … ]

The public has an urgent and substantial interest in understanding the predicate for the execution of the unprecedented search warrant of the private residence of a former president and likely future political opponent…. [N]o official explanation or information has been released about the search. As of the filing of this motion, the public record consists solely of speculation and inuendo. In short, the historical presumption of access to warrant materials vastly outweighs any interest the government may have in keeping the materials under seal.

[ … ]

Given the political context, and the highly unusual action of executing a search warrant at the residence of a former President and likely future political opponent, it is essential that the public understands as soon as possible the basis for the government’s action. Any government interest in securing the identities of witnesses and confidential sources, if any, may be addressed by appropriate redactions from the search warrant affidavit.

The U.S. Constitution and federal law give unreviewable authority to President Trump to take whatever records he wishes at the end of his presidency. The Biden administration’s dishonest depiction of personal records of President Trump it illicitly seized during the raid as “classified” is further demonstration that the raid was a brazen act of raw political abuse.

‘You know a nation is in trouble when its security services are raiding the residence of a former president’

Banana Republic U.S.A.

The Mar-a-Lago raid is a dangerous moment for America

by Tom Slater, Spiked, August 11, 2022

You know a nation is in trouble when its security services are raiding the residence of a former president. Doubly so when said nation’s supposedly liberal intelligentsia seem tickled pink about this unprecedented development, without a whiff of concern or scepticism about what the feds are up to. That’s where the United States is at the moment, in the wake of the FBI’s search of former president Donald Trump ’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida on Monday, reportedly over a dispute about missing official documents.

There’s still much we don’t know about this bizarrely explosive dispute between Trump and the National Archives. But what we do know is puzzling, to put it lightly. According to the New York Times, officials had been after Trump for months over official and potentially classified materials he still had in his possession. After archivists retrieved 15 boxes of documents, including some sensitive material, the US Department of Justice was called in. A grand jury was convened. Federal investigators, including counterintelligence officers, were deployed. And, unsatisfied with what had been retrieved, officers then secured a search warrant.

Why this couldn’t have been handled in a somewhat more discrete fashion, without armed agents and everything, is not yet clear. Think back to Hillary Clinton’s notorious email server and you see allegations like this are not unprecedented, but this raid certainly is. Former spooks on liberal cable-news networks have reassured Americans that everything must have been on the up and up, because the raid would have required the sign-off of a judge, FBI head Christopher Wray and attorney general Merrick Garland. ‘They wouldn’t do this unless they had the goods’ is the line being trotted out across corporate media.

To at least half of America, of course, this is about as reassuring as Joe Biden insisting he remembers where he parked the car. As left-wing journalist Matt Taibbi notes, similar reassurances were offered over and over again during the ludicrous Russiagate scandal, to justify official investigations, insane claims and even the surveillance of Trump advisers. In the end, of course, the idea that Trump was Putin’s puppet turned out to be an elite conspiracy theory. Still, the FBI and its newfound liberal cheerleaders are now hoping to rely on a level of blind public trust that no longer exists, if it ever existed at all….

Everything ‘Demolition Man’ Got Right about the 21st Century—so Far

The 1993 film Demolition Man saw some parts of our future clearly—and reminds us there are many shades of dystopia.


I haven’t thought about the movie Demolition Man in a long time, but this changed recently when it was brought to my attention that the film is now nearly 30 years old.

Made by filmmaker Marco Brambilla in his directorial debut, Demolition Man is one of those movies that manages to be simultaneously campy and ingenious. Featuring a star-studded lineup that included Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, and Sandra Bullock—not to mention up-and-comers like Denis Leary and Benjamin Bratt, as well as stage actor Nigel Hawthorne and the guy who played the warden in Shawshank Redemption (Bob Gunton)—the movie was a hit, raking in $159 million worldwide.

The movie has a delicious if ludicrous plot. Stallone plays John Spartan, a Dirty Harry-style police officer whose life takes a sudden turn when his attempt to rescue a bunch of hostages goes awry. When all the hostages are found dead following an explosion, Spartan, along with the criminal he was trying to stop, Simon Phoenix (Snipes), is sentenced to be cryogenically frozen.

Both Spartan and Phoenix are unthawed in 2032—36 years after being frozen—in a world that looks much different.

I had to rewatch Demolition Man after the release of an Out of Frame short that explored all the ways Demolition Man predicted the future. The movie was even campier than I remembered, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t also impressed by just how much of our future Demolition Man got right.

Self-driving electric cars? Check.

Humans using computers to increase their self esteem? Check.

Zoom meetings? Check.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s entry into politics? Check.

Attention spans the length of goldfish? Check.

Voice-activated search in homes? Check.

Digital currency? Check.

Tablets? Check.

Portable phones that access the internet? Check.

Anti-smoking laws, language police, germaphobia, and gun control? Check. Check. Check. Check.

This list is by no means exhaustive, mind you. And as impressive as it is, the list doesn’t include what is in my opinion the most prophetic (and best) part of Demolition Man: Edgard Friendly’s soliloquy on why he’s living as a criminal underground (literally in the ground) rather than on the surface.

Friendly (portrayed by Leary), explains to Spartan why he’s viewed as the enemy by Dr. Raymond Cocteau, one of the creators of the CryoPrison and an architect of the paternalistic society.

See, according to Cocteau’s plan, I’m the enemy. Cause I like to think, I like to read. I’m into freedom of speech and freedom of choice. I’m the kind of guy who wants to sit in a greasy spoon and think, “Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecued ribs with the side order of gravy fries?” I want high cholesterol. I want to eat bacon, butter and buckets of cheese, okay? I want to smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in a non-smoking section. I wanna run through the streets naked with green Jell-O all over my body reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly might feel the need to. Okay, pal? I’ve seen the future, you know what it is? It’s a 47-year-old virgin sittin’ around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake singing “I’m an Oscar-Meyer Wiener”.

Friendly, Spartan discovers, isn’t a master criminal. He just wants to think for himself, live as he wishes, and be left alone—and that’s something he can’t do on the surface.

“You wanna live on top, you gotta live Cocteau’s way. What he wants, when he wants, how he wants,” he explains. “Your other choice: come down here, maybe starve to death.”

Friendly’s speech invites an important question: If dystopia arrives, what will it look like?

Oftentimes dystopia is depicted as malevolent and totalitarian, like in Orwell’s Nineteen-Eighty Four. Sometimes it’s a desolate wasteland of violence, like in Cormac McCarthy’s The Road or Mad Max. But sometimes, like in Aldous Huxley’s novel Brave New World, on which Demolition Man is very loosely based, dystopia is soft, prosperous, and caring—but just as sinister.

The Christian philosopher C.S. Lewis once wrote that of all the tyrannies on earth, none was as oppressive as that which was exercised for the benefit of its victims.

“It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies,” Lewis observed. “The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

This was the tyranny Edgard Friendly couldn’t stomach. It wasn’t Big Brother that drove Edgar Friendly underground, it was something closer to the Nanny State.

And if we’re being honest, many of Friendly’s grievances speak to our world today. When he says he’s the kind of guy “who wants to sit in a greasy spoon and think, ‘Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecued ribs,’” I don’t think he was referring to the synthetic beef Bill Gates wants to shift the world to to save the planet.

When Friendly talks about free speech, it’s hard not to think about the growing hostility to free expression on social media, university campuses, and in corporate workplaces. When he says he’s into freedom of choice, the last two years of the pandemic loom large, as the Cocteaus in our world made decisions for billions of people. Wear the mask. Stay home. Get the shot. And do not complain or protest; because we’re all in this together.

Demolition Man is a reminder that there are many shades of dystopia. It’s not always about the stuff you have or don’t have. It’s much more about freedom. And if, like Edgard Friendly, you’re living in a place that wants to use coercion to control what you say, think, and eat, you might be living in a dystopia without even knowing it.

Judge Orders DOJ to Respond to Judicial Watch’s Motion to Unseal Mar-a-Lago Search Warrant Materials by 5p.m. EST on August 15

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart has ordered the U.S. Department of Justice to file a response to Judicial Watch’s Motion to Unseal the warrant and supporting materials behind the FBI raid of President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago by 5p.m. on August 15, 2022.

The order notes that, “The response may be filed ex parte and under seal as necessary to avoid disclosing matters already under seal. In that event, the Government shall file a redacted Response in the public record.”

On August 9, Judicial Watch filed its motion asking the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida to unseal as soon as possible the search warrant materials used by the FBI to raid President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida (U.S. v. Sealed Search Warrant (Case No. 9:22-mj-08332)).

The Albany Times Union and the New York Times have joined Judicial Watch in filing for the unsealing of the warrant by filing an amicus letter and motion respectively.

Due to multiple organizations filing to unseal the warrant, Judge Reinhart further ordered that, “To avoid the need for individualized orders on any future motion(s) to unseal, it is ORDERED that the Government shall file an omnibus response to all motions to unseal on or before 5:00 p.m. Eastern time on August 15, 2022.”

According to media reports, the warrant relates to an alleged dispute over the Presidential Records Act.

In its motion Judicial Watch states:

Judicial Watch is investigating the potential politicization of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Justice and whether the FBI and the Justice Department are abusing their law enforcement powers to harass a likely future political opponent of President Biden.

[ *** ]

The public has an urgent and substantial interest in understanding the predicate for the execution of the unprecedented search warrant of the private residence of a former president and likely future political opponent…. [N]o official explanation or information has been released about the search. As of the filing of this motion, the public record consists solely of speculation and inuendo. In short, the historical presumption of access to warrant materials vastly outweighs any interest the government may have in keeping the materials under seal.

[ *** ]

Given the political context, and the highly unusual action of executing a search warrant at the residence of a former President and likely future political opponent, it is essential that the public understands as soon as possible the basis for the government’s action. Any government interest in securing the identities of witnesses and confidential sources, if any, may be addressed by appropriate redactions from the search warrant affidavit.

As Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said when the motion was filed, “The Biden administration’s raid on President Trump’s home is an outrageous, reckless and unprecedented abuse of power. And the American people have an urgent right to know how it happened and who is responsible.”

DOJ Official Declares Mar-a-Lago Raid ‘A Spectacular Backfire’: Report

Eric Trump Gives Inside Look at What the FBI Outrageously Did During KGB-Style Raid: It’s Worse Than You Think

For the rule of law to reign, the Bureau must be destroyed

The FBI cannot be saved. It must be rendered into component parts and distributed to the four winds.


From the time I was 7-years-old until I was about 20, I was in love with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In second grade, while other kids wanted to be firemen, I wanted to be a special agent (and I could have told you what one was, what they did, and what the requirements were to become one). In the early 1990s, my favorite show was “FBI: The Untold Stories,” and if we were not home from Cub Scouts in time for it to air, there was a tantrum on the way. I did a book report on a J. Edgar Hoover biography in middle school.

My zeal mellowed as I grew older but never entirely disappeared. As I began my career looking at counterterrorism policy, I meticulously studied the FBI’s extensive investigation of the Holy Land Foundation, the largest Islamic charity in the country, which was successfully convicted of financing the terror group Hamas after more than a decade of FBI investigation (I’ve written two short monographs about aspects of the case).

Later I had the pleasure of providing a three-hour briefing on the ideology of Islamist terrorists for an FBI-led group of Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF) agents, which included one of the agents who worked the Holy Land Foundation case. Several of my colleagues have signed certifications from the FBI in recognition of their work in counterterrorism education.

I say all this to establish that I am not some dyed-in-the-wool civil libertarian who has always had it in for federal law enforcement. I have spent most of my adult life trying to educate people about the serious national security threats this country faces. The United States has very real enemies, both foreign and domestic, and it requires defending.

Nevertheless, the FBI must be abolished.

The solution to the abuses we now endure is not just to subject the FBI to another fruitless inspector general investigation but to dismantle it completely. The bureau cannot be the focus of yet another congressional hearing. FBI Director Christopher Wray, like his predecessors, is more than happy to sit smirking while a handful of grandstanding congressmen and senators pound the table and yell on C-SPAN. Then he’ll jet off for a holiday vacation on a taxpayer-funded private jet while the same congressmen vote to increase his budget. Again.

No, the FBI must be rendered into component parts and distributed to the four winds.

The bureau has always had its problems and its detractors. Since the days of J. Edgar Hoover keeping his own “private” files on elected politicians and famous persons, the FBI has had a political streak. As an agency it has always been savvy about its reputation, bureaucratically out-dueling federal departments that sought to infringe on the bureau’s perceived preeminence in the fields of federal law enforcement and counterintelligence. But most of the FBI’s politicization had to do with maintaining its own administrative superiority and independence, not serving as muscle for a particular political party.

That’s no longer the case.

The FBI’s actions over the past six years make perfectly clear that the FBI is more than willing to serve as the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party. It serves as its patron’s shield in matters large and small. It exonerated Hillary Clinton for her illicit server. It raided James O’Keefe and Project Veritas when Joe Biden’s daughter lost her diary. It eliminated investigation into Black Lives Matter and other black identity extremists because those pursuits annoyed the Democrats’ Congressional Black Caucus. It refuses even to utter the word “Antifa” while churches and pregnancy centers are fire-bombed. It continues to cover up for Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings with enemy nations, along with his indulgence in criminal prostitution and drug abuse.

But the FBI has also served as the Democrats’ sword as well. It knowingly laundered the Russian collusion hoax, lying in order to secure FISA warrants. It ambushed the president’s sitting national security advisor in a nonsense perjury trap. The FBI hunts down January 6 protesters while dodging congressional inquiries about the role of federal agents in provoking the incident. The FBI ginned up a fake kidnapping plot in Michigan to instill fear of right-wing terrorism, manhandled the former president’s lawyer, and shackled one of his former high-level aides.

And it has now raided the former president’s home under a mere pretext, while the Democrats openly crow on cable news about using a political prosecution to prevent Trump from ever again being able to serve in office.

Other attempts to rein in the FBI short of its abolition have failed. The FBI shows nothing but contempt for those authorized to oversee it. It routinely ignores inspector general investigations. It fails to prosecute or punish those who overtly violate established policies. It refuses to answer legitimate questions from Republican committee members. It doesn’t even respond to congressional letters of inquiry. It punishes FBI whistleblowers and seeks to purge from its midst those agents who aren’t in lockstep with its new praetorian guard role.

Break It Up Responsibly

Assuming the political will existed to do so, how might the FBI be dismembered in a way that would not expose the country to unnecessary security risks?

Begin by separating out the FBI’s component parts. The FBI’s crime lab, statistical services, and National Crime Information Center service could be pulled out and left as independent agencies with the sole job of supporting other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies with their scientific and data capabilities.

Parcel out the FBI’s criminal justice division and its tasks to the various state-level bureaus of investigation. Provide direct federal funding to compensate for the extra workload. Let them primarily make state-level cases, in state court, for the crimes committed within the physical boundaries of their states. It’s not as though kidnapping, bank robbery, drug dealing, or racketeering went unpunished before the FBI came along. White collar, financial, and cybercrimes can be handled by the U.S. Secret Service. Federal crimes whose perpetrators directly cross state lines can be given to the U.S. Marshals Service to track down. Unlike the FBI, the U.S. Marshals are largely scandal-free, and have a long history of cooperating successfully with state and local law enforcement.

For the disgraced national security division, divide up the FBI’s counterterrorism portfolio among the remaining federal law enforcement and homeland security agencies with a role to play, and the various state and regional JTTFs.

Who Has the Stomach for This Work?

The FBI’s stranglehold on counterintelligence is perhaps the most important to break. It is within this division that the FBI spied on the Trump campaign at the behest of the Democratic Party.

Even before it willingly embraced the role of partisan opposition researcher, FBI counterintelligence had few memorable successes (Anna Chapman and Operation Ghost Stories being a recent one) but multiple crushing failures, the most notable of which was Robert Hanssen. The struggle to conduct professional counterintelligence has always been driven by a tension between the FBI’s responsibility as a law enforcement agency with the intent and the authority to jail citizens for crimes, and the practice of counterintelligence, a discipline that requires strategic patience and analysis.

The FBI’s responsibility for counterintelligence should be taken away and vested in the National Counterintelligence Executive (NCIX). Its mandate should not be targeting American citizens (especially elected officials!), but rather policing the intelligence services themselves, rooting out evidence of foreign penetration within their ranks, exploiting and manipulating foreign intelligence services for American national security interests. They do not need law enforcement powers or wide-ranging FISA Court warrants for this job.

Admittedly, a GOP-majority Congress may not have the stomach for even the lightest pushback against the bureau. Expect even the promise of ineffectual hearings to fade as soon as the midterm elections are over. After all, few congressmen are as popular with their voters as Donald Trump is with his base, and if the FBI can slander and investigate a sitting president, what couldn’t it do to a freshman congressman?

But imagine how the walls of the deep state might begin to show cracks were Congress to hold fast and declare at the outset, one way or the other, the FBI is finished, with no quarter given. Then you might see bureaucrats looking for soft landings, crawling out of the woodwork with tales about FBI bad behavior and who to hold responsible. You might have a few good apples stand up and speak out if they knew with certainty that their superiors would no longer hold the keys to some future employment. Indeed, there may be any number of agents in far-flung field offices across the country who might rejoice to see themselves rehired by another law enforcement agency that actually cares about enforcing the law. But the FBI itself, as an institution, cannot be saved.

To save the rule of law, the bureau must be destroyed.

Republicans Are Violent and I’m the Tooth Fairy

“Social media platforms lit up with right-wing speculation, militant rhetoric and political fundraising after former President Donald Trump announced that his Mar-a-Lago home had been searched by the FBI.”  This is how NPR frames the issue and is conditioning you to think about the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  And their evidence for such a grand conclusion?

Subjective conclusory declarations, like this one: “It’s been a lot of very hot talk and sometimes quite violent sounding.”

Then an immediate change of subject, a detour to social media posts after the 2020 elections.

Then an assertion “elected officials and high-profile media personalities” are using civil war language without giving a single piece of documentation.

Then resort to mischaracterizing reaction to the raid as conspiracy theory and false narrative.  But what are people looking for a reason for the raid supposed to do when the FBI and Justice Department refuse to explain themselves and won’t release the warrant?

Then it’s back to “increasingly violent rhetoric from prominent figures” without a shred of documentation.  Not a single example of violence cited in NPR’s story, not one.

Not much evidence, and this is what passes for news on NPR.  I can’t tell if this was deliberate propaganda or these people live in a bubble and don’t know any Republicans.  Either way, an unfortunate pattern is developing.  Here, NPR is trying to make you afraid of everyone on the Right, calling them violent without any evidence.  This fits a recent pattern in the liberal media and broader Left’s coverage of election integrity issues. There, Republicans and election integrity activists are being painted as conspiracy theorists and violent provocateurs.  The Washington Post had a story about proposed legislation to “increase protection of election workers and officials against harassment and violence.”  The left-wing group the Scrutineers is training its people that GOP poll workers are saboteurs and violent.  “The same people who pushed The Big Lie about the 2020 election are threatening to disrupt the midterms,” their July 26th mailing said.  The left-wing Brennan Center proclaims Republican conspiracy theorists make elections officials feel unsafe. Merrick Garland’s left-wing Justice Department has started a task force to “address threats of violence against election workers.”   That’s not all.  I’ve seen countless stories, now, discrediting people working for fair and honest elections as racist conspiracy nuts, or far-right kooks who are chasing unicorns – never mind that voter ID laws get upheld by just about every court that looks at them.

Telling members that outsiders are violent and not to be trusted is a cult technique.  To make this believable, cult leaders control the information environment and disparage outside sources of information as fascistic, reactionary, and not credible.  I’ve even had a Leftist tell me the Wall Street Journal is not a credible source of information.  Poppycock!  Cult leaders shut off contrary information and give their members slogans to chant instead, like ‘Republicans are violent’ and that chant is growing louder even though it’s pure malarkey.

It’s all psychological manipulation.  This is what cults do.  The NPR story is a good example of cult techniques in action.

Left-wing media outlets like NPR smear because they don’t want you to know the real issues at stake.  Real reporting on Mar-a-Lago would have covered Donald Trump’s extensive previous cooperation with the FBI and Justice Department about White House records over many months. [more here]  Real reporters would have asked whether the judge who granted the warrant was informed of that history.  Real journalism would have reported the fact that a watchdog group has now sued to make public the warrant.   Doesn’t sound violent to me unless, of course, you think the Democrats calling the raid an abuse of power are violent, too.

NPR got one part of the story right. Trump is raising record amounts of money off the raid.  That doesn’t sound violent to me, either.  ‘Republicans are violent’ – what a bunch of horse hockey.  Once again, I remind you of Wright’s Law: everything that comes out of the mouth of the Left can be deconstructed because everything that comes out of the mouth of the Left is garbage.

FBI searched Melania’s wardrobe, spent hours in Trump’s private office during Mar-a-Lago raid

No lawyers to observe, refused access. Illegal search and seizure. G-d knows what they may have planted.

FBI searched Melania’s wardrobe, spent hours in Trump’s private office during Mar-a-Lago raid

By: NY Post, August 9, 2022:

FBI agents scoured Melania Trump’s wardrobe and spent several hours combing through Donald Trump’s private office, breaking open his safe and rifling through drawers when they raided the former First Family’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida Monday morning.

The Post has learned that the search warrant used by the FBI to enter the palatial Palm Beach property focused solely on presidential records and evidence of classified information being stored there.

A source close to the former president expressed concern that FBI agents or DOJ lawyers conducting the search could have “planted stuff” because they would not allow Trump’s attorneys inside the 128-room building to observe the operation, which lasted more than nine hours.

The raid by over 30 plain clothes agents from the Southern District of Florida and the FBI’s Washington Field Office extended through the Trump family’s entire 3,000-square-foot private quarters, as well as to a separate office and safe, and a locked basement storage room in which 15 cardboard boxes of material from the White House were stored.

Feds arrived at 9 a.m. and didn’t leave until 6:30 p.m.

[ … ]

In June, Corcoran granted access into Mar-a-Lago’s windowless storage room to FBI agents who spent several hours searching through the boxes. Trump stopped by the basement to say hello at one point, says someone who was there.

McCarthy Vows Full Investigation Into AG Garland and Trump Raid

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) promised on Monday to launch a full investigation into Attorney General Merrick Garland and the FBI’s raid on former President Trump’s Florida home, Mar-A-Lago.

McCarthy tweeted, “I’ve seen enough. The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization. When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned. Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar,” he warned.

Indeed, , Should Republicans take back the House at the 2022 congressional midterms, they will acquire the ability to launch subpoenas into the raid. The House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Reform Committee can focus on the events and decision-making process that led to the search warrant against Trump.

The House Judiciary Republicans wrote, “This is what happens in third world countries. Not the United States. Doesn’t the FBI have better things to do than harass the former PRESIDENT?”

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel wrote, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Countless times we have examples of Democrats flaunting the law and abusing power with no recourse, including Hunter Biden. Democrats continually weaponize the bureaucracy against Republicans. This raid is outrageous.”

“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar- A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump wrote in a statement. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
