The less we understand of what our fathers and forefathers sought, the less we understand ourselves, and thus we help with all our might to rob the individual of his roots and his guiding instincts so that he becomes a particle in the mass, ruled only by what Nietzsche called the spirit of gravity.
That’s about the size of it these days. A red baseball cap is pretty damn close to all you need for the FBI to come after you and your family. We saw it start under Obama, to prevent the Trump Presidency, and we’ve seen it go further down that rabbit hole since then.
These days, it’s the FBI – really, the whole of the DOJ, but the FBI are the primary myrmidons – who are the terrorists. They even match the original definition of the term. That’s what happens when a paramilitary forced allowed to operated under the Color of Law is either weaponized against a political party’s domestic enemies or chooses to weaponize itself in order to preserve or expand its power and funding.
Ah yes. The FBI Raid Chart. It’s been around since Obama weaponized the entirety of the DOJ against the true-born and rightly-raised People of America. It’s just gotten worse, more overt, and less apologetic in recent years. What they did to President Trump and his family is just the most recent and most egregious offense by The Democrats’ jackboots.
And this is the one thing our self-proclaimed domestic enemies, the Democrats and their sorts, either don’t understand or blindly deny. A lot of us Americans either aren’t especially bothered by the FBI raiding President Trump’s home or, like me, are ambivalent due to this situation being fairly complex. What were far more than merely bothered by is that others haven’t been raided or even investigated and it’s more than obvious that the FBI’s choice of targets have been totally and solely politically motivated.
It’s obvious to a large number of us, irrespective of how we feel about President Trump, that the entirety of the federal agency apparatus and related personnel have been suborned by Democrats and are et al and in toto illegitimate, an enemy occupying force, and a clear and present existential threat to ourselves, our loved ones, and our nation.
When it’s Bernie Freaking Sanders saying something like this, Democrats should listen and take what he’s saying to heart. They won’t though. They crossed the Rubicon back in 2015 and there’s no going back for them. They’ve placed themselves in a position where they either succeed in fundamentally changing the very nature of America or this is the hill they’ll die on.
Then, Congress is full of the sorts who ignored what the January 6th protest and resulting incursion into the Capitol meant. They put up fences; they engaged in a still ongoing kangaroo pseudo-court to persecute President Trump; they are openly attempting to disarm the People. But they’re not asking themselves what they did to bring things to this point. Not one of them – except, apparently, Senator Sanders! 😯 – not even once where we, the People could read or hear it.
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty…except, apparently, when that fear is insufficient or the government is too far gone into collective narcissism to understand.
No. Instead, they went directly after the POTUS that they used every means at their disposal – legal, extralegal, and possibly illegal – for four years to forcibly remove from office. In their delusional state and utter denial of their own wrongdoings, they acted as if they believe that one man, President Trump, was such a terrifyingly powerful demagogue that he could actually shape the feelings of the American people.
Hint – Trump isn’t even that great of a speaker, as the Left has pointed out repeatedly. He’s not shaping opinions or policies. He’s a just representation of Americans’ anger.
And these Democrats – and the Republicans who, for whatever reasons, are insufficiently against them – have chosen to “double-down” on things.
Fortunately, it wasn’t the second “Shot Heard ‘Round The World.” The President was not in residence during the raid and the FBI managed not to shoot anyone else while carrying out the Democrats’ orders. That would have sparked some sad hybrid of revolution, civil war, and poorly focused violent insurrection.
Weaponizing the FBI and then being that callously overt in its misuse is bad enough. It was probably the last straw for the DOJ and, by extension, all the federal law enforcement and quasi-law enforcement agencies.
At this point, I’m not sure what’s going to happen beyond Congress and their Alphabet Bois and Gurls either not developing self-awareness or realizing that they’ve already gone too far and can’t back down now. What it’s going to look like and exactly when it going to go down is beyond my ken.
But I’m pretty sure that this is the hill they’re going to die on, or it’s going to be the hill that America dies on… or both, as is more likely.
The US Department of Justice (DOJ) has declared New York City, along with Portland and Seattle, as “Anarchist Jurisdictions” due to their local governments having permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and having refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities within their borders.
[sic] … in New York City, city officials have allowed violence to spike. In late May and early June, State and local officials allowed looting to take place for over a week, resulting in damage to an estimated 450 businesses. As of August 16, there have been 896 shootings in New York this year, compared to 492 shootings during the same period last year. The shooting victims include children as young as 1 year old. Shootings have been rising in recent weeks, and police reported 244 shootings last month compared to 88 in July 2019 â€” a 177 percent increase. While violence has surged, arrests have plummeted. In a 28-day period during the months of June and July, arrests were down 62 percent from the same period in 2019. Amidst the rising violence, Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Council agreed to cut one billion dollars from the New York Police Department (NYPD) budget, including by canceling the hiring of 1,163 officers. In June, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea disbanded the NYPDâ€™s plainclothes anti-crime units, which target illegal guns and violent crime. Police officials have cited this decision as a factor contributing to the rise in violence. In light of this unconscionable rise in violence, I have offered to provide Federal law enforcement assistance, but both Mayor de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo have rejected my offer.
This isn’t just idle words either. De Blasio’s outright refusal to maintain law and order and his and his family’s outright, over support for the race rioters of #BlackLivesMatter may well cost NYC more than $7 billion federal grant monies in fiscal 2021 alone. That would be approximately 7.5% of the NYC government’s total expected revenues. And that will be coming on top however much damage the Blacks and their enablers end up costing the city and the $9 billion loss in tax revenue the city faces due to de Blasio’s and Cuomo’s response to COVID-19.
Those of us living in NYC will soon see just how much de Blasio, Cuomo, and their constituencies in #BlackLivesMatter, #Antifa, and other Democrat cells have cost us. The director of the Office of Management and Budget has 30 days to issue guidance to federal agencies on restricting eligibility for federal grants for the cities on the DOJ’s list.
In May of 2007, Obama’s FBI and DOJ disappeared into the woods near 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue while “investigating” the Trump campaign collusion with the Russians, shot themselves in their feet, and their integrity and public confidence were never hears from again. Over a year later the “investigation” continues.
