WASHINGTON, DC- Let this sink in. Last June, the FBI sent 15 special agents to Talladega Speedway to investigate a garage door pulldown that was alleged by a black NASCAR driver to be a noose.
It is unknown how many agents were assigned to investigate the “siege” at the US Capitol on January 6, but it’s reasonable to assume it probably numbers over 100. Possible terror suspects? Sorry, too busy conducting political operations like Crossfire Hurricane for the Democrats.
The New York Times reported last week that the suspect in the Boulder, Colorado grocery store shooting that led to 10 Americans, including a Boulder police officer being murdered had been on the intelligence agency’s radar prior to the massacre.
According to the Times, “The suspect’s identity was previously known to the F.B.I. because he was linked to another individual under investigation by the bureau, according to law enforcement officials.” Hmmm…isn’t that odd? Not really.
Have you heard about the new gun control measures being proposed by Congressional Democrats and Joe Biden when he isn’t falling down stairs? One of their proposals is for universal background checks, as if such a proposal is a panacea and will prevent future mass shootings.
If that is true, then Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa should not have been able to purchase a pistol six days before the incident, according to a police affidavit. Any such purchase would have required he pass a federal background check…run by the FBI. This of course begs the question—what the hell exactly is the FBI doing?
According to The Federalist¸ this is apparently not an anomaly.
Way back when Obama was running roughshod over people’s rights, former FBI Director James Comey was questioned by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) about a so-called “known wolf” problem, whereby there were 14 Islamist terror attacks in the U.S. during Obama’s presidency, including the Boston Marathon bombing.
Of those 14, the FBI had been aware of at least 12 prior to the attacks being carried out, yet did nothing.
What attacks you may ask? Well besides the Boston Marathon bombing which killed three, including an eight-year-old boy and injured 264, there was the Pulse nightclub shooting which killed 49 people and wounded 53 others, and the Fort Hood shooting where 13 Americans were killed. What is the similarity between the three attacks?
All of the suspects were known by the FBI prior to the incidents and some had been interviewed by the FBI. Yet the attacks still happened.
Want some more? How about the shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida?
Sources say the FBI had been warned numerous times about him. They had also been tipped off about the 2018 Nashville Waffle House shooter, who killed four as well as the recent 2020 bombing in downtown Nashville. Doing some tremendous work there, FBI.
BREAKING: we just received this report from @MNPDNashville showing Anthony Warner’s girlfriend reported he was making bombs in an RV one year ago. The FBI said earlier this week Warner was not on law enforcement’s radar prior to this incident. #nashvillebombing @WSMV pic.twitter.com/fYga92BIzP

The FBI is good however at spying on American presidential campaigns, even at making up the facts and circumstances used in order to show probable cause to obtain FISA warrants. Remember Crossfire Hurricane?
That was when the FBI used a phony dossier from a disgraced former spy to make up a phony Russia collusion scheme between the Trump campaign and Vladimir Putin.
That led to the Mueller Report and special counsel Robert Mueller, a plot which undermined the Trump presidency for three years and led to a big fat goose egg when it came to collusion. Brought to you courtesy of James Comey’s FBI.
Along with that, the FBI also launched a spy campaign on a national news organization at the same time—Fox News.
According to declassified messages, disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok showed the agency conducted surveillance and recorded a phone call between former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos and an unnamed vice president at Fox before President Trump was inaugurated.
Let’s not forget the FBI launching a sting operation which targeted Aunt Becky from Full House (Lori Laughlin) and Blair from Christmas With the Kranks (Felicity Huffman) for an alleged scheme to buy access for their children into college under bogus athletic scholarships.
Because using fraud to screw overpriced universities is a matter of national security demanding the FBI’s involvement apparently?
When not going after Hollywood “B” list actors, the FBI turned its attention to a group of people and an alleged plot to kidnap oppressive Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
Not happy to be mere bystanders waiting for the plot to hatch, the inserted agents actually formulated the plan and then basically entrapped the other dupes into going along, then sprung their trap.
As to the worst “insurrection” in world history from January 6, USA Today reports that “agents in all but one of the FBI’s 56 field offices have been drafted to track down” those who attended the Capitol incident on January 6.
It doesn’t matter who stood outside peacefully or the knuckleheads who breached the Capitol. The Biden administration is out for blood. And the politically-motivated FBI is more than happy to comply.
“Investigators who typically work cases involving trafficking of drugs, child pornography and sex have taken calls from rioter’s angry ex-wives and former girlfriends and employers turned tipsters,” the outlet continued.
What’s more, the FBI continues to cover-up the true cause of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick’s death, with FBI Director Christopher Wray telling a Senate subcommittee that the agency could not release that information. What are they trying to hide?
For those who stood outside the Capitol and didn’t participate in the vandalism or violence inside the building, that doesn’t matter. According to Julie Kelly of American Greatness, who reviewed court documents relative to the Capitol siege, the FBI is persecuting people who committed no violence on January 6, including one who never went inside the Capitol, nor engaged in any criminal activity.
So, what was his “crime?” According to Kelly, he appears to belong to a group in which some members believe that “the federal government has been co-opted by a cabal of elites actively trying to strip American citizens of their rights.”
That probably covers the 50% of American people who have grown tired of power-hungry governors stomping on the entire Bill of Rights for the past year.

Homeschool your children? That is apparently a FBI no-no.
According to Kelly, parents of a teen who actually entered the Capitol, however committed no violence have been threatened by the agency for their political beliefs. Their son, 18, has been held in jail for nearly two months without bail because…he was homeschooled. Seriously.
“I don’t believe that home incarceration will work because he is an 18-year-old who’s homeschooled,” said U.S. Attorney Ryan Buchanan to a judge.
Much better if the boy attended a public school where he could be educated in neo-Marxist ideology with all the other young skulls full of mush being indoctrinated as such.
The 18-year-old, Bruno Cua was among 300 people arrested for the Capitol incident. He was indicted by a grand jury on 12 counts, nearly all of them bogus, and was kept in solitary confinement for three weeks following his arrest…in the United States of America.
After being subjected to that, he was then transferred from Atlanta to Oklahoma City, where he had to share a cell with 30 other inmates? Pandemic? Not if you’re a Trump supporter apparently.
So you may ask, how many of the thousands of violent perpetrators who destroyed cities across the country last summer and fall has the FBI arrested? How many agents have been assigned to identify and arrest those responsible?
How many of those who stormed the federal courthouse in Portland, the Oregon state capitol in Salem, or the Georgia state capitol in Atlanta last week have been targeted by the FBI?
Contrast the interest the nation’s “leading” law enforcement agency has in identifying real insurrectionists with those at the January 6 Capitol incident.
All across the country, the FBI has paid for thousands of billboards seeking tips from American citizens anxious to dime out their friends or neighbors for being at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
If only they were that interested in targeting left-wing extremists who have been responsible for nearly $2 billion in damage since last May.
Sources now say that the FBI received repeated tips ahead of time from Parler about possible violence at the Jan. 6 siege. So what did the FBI do with this information? Zippo. Nada. Zero. Zilch. The agency did nothing to prevent it…almost as if they wanted something to occur.
Add to that the fact that the FBI attempted to entrap certain Tea Party and conservative patriotic groups and it seems rather curious.
Back when J. Edgar Hoover was FBI Director, the agency enjoyed a reputation as a corrupt organization used to target political enemies. For a time, that reputation went away, or at least was not there for all to see. Not anymore however. The ascendency of Donald Trump to president changed all of that.
Contrast what happened to former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith and the people who attacked Secret Service agents at a real attempted insurrection at the White House, attacked people in restaurants, and came within seconds of likely killing a sitting United States Senator versus those who participated in what amounts to a trespass and petty vandalism at the US Capitol on Jan. 6.
In the case of Klinesmith, he got sentenced to probation…for altering a CIA email, lying to an FBI supervisor, facilitating the FBI and DOJ submitting false information to the FISA court. Probation, a $100 fine and 400 hours of community service…period.
The people who attempted a White House insurrection and laid siege to Washington, DC for months, along with numerous cities across the country? Nary had a charge pressed, and a nice mural painted on the street in Washington, DC.
Are you suspected of being at the Capitol on January 6? You lose your firearms and have monitors placed on you, while the unlucky ones are in jail, such as Bruno Cua, stripped of their right to due process.
All of this circles back to the FBI. Clearly the agency has returned to the Hoover days, of using FBI agents to target political enemies or those with whom you have a philosophical disagreement.
Where exactly are the priorities of the FBI? Fifteen agents sent to Talladega to investigate a garage door pull, hundreds of millions of dollars spent trying to bag rich parents attempting to get their dumb kids into top-rated universities, and targeting the political and ideological enemies of Democrats is a priority.
Meanwhile you ignore known terrorists and terror threats which have sadly led to the deaths of scores of Americans does not lend itself to a lot of confidence in what is supposed to be the preeminent law enforcement agency in the country.
Where is Jack Bauer and CTU when you need them?
