Self-proclaimed “former FBI agent” attempts to dox police officers – gets publicly humiliated

Share:

This editorial is written by a former police officer and current staff writer at Law Enforcement Today.  The writer has chosen to submit it under a pen name over fear that the subject of this op-ed will attempt to dox him and destroy his career.

Typically we at Law Enforcement Today don’t respond to trolls by responding in an editorial. We usually let our National Director take care of Karen’s who contact us by email to whine and complain about our content. This time however it merits a very public response.

For those of you who regularly read our content, you know we have been very hard on the FBI, in particular the leadership of the organization, as well as the Department of Justice under the partisan, inept attorney general Merrick Garland.

To be clear, our criticism of the FBI is not intended for the 99% of personnel who do their jobs and do them very well. We are directing our ire at the 1% of FBI personnel who have used their position to launch and participate in partisan attacks against political opponents of the “ruling class.”

All one has to do is look at the hijinks the FBI has been involved in over the past five plus years to realize it is no longer the agency it once was.

The agency has been politicized and used to target or exact revenge against those who are not beltway insiders. Moreover, they have dropped the ball on investigations, which has in some cases cost lives. Unfortunately, some otherwise very good agents have been taken along for the ride.

Want some examples?

  • Crossfire Hurricane/Russia collusion hoax
  • Hillary Clinton’s private server and destroyed emails/hard drives subject to congressional subpoena
  • Hunter Biden laptop
  • Speaking of which, no investigation of Biden’s ties to China?
  • January 6 targeting of Trump supporters, majority of whom committed no violence
  • Where is Ray Epps and why isn’t he in custody?
  • Their involvement in the so-called “kidnapping” plot of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer
  • Las Vegas mass shooting
  • Active shooters brought to attention of agency only to see nothing done to prevent them from carrying out shootings
  • Politically motivated raids or arrests on individuals, including Roger Stone, Peter Navarro, Project Veritas, President Trump and many more
  • Why hasn’t anyone affiliated with Jeffrey Epstein been arrested yet?

These are only just a few of literally dozens of cases where the FBI allowed politics to sway their operations.

This brings us to a man named Frank Scafidi, who has taken to social media platforms such as Facebook and LinkedIn to trash our company and our brand. Scafidi, who apparently claims to be a retired FBI agent has taken quite a bit of exception to our characterization of the FBI as a version of the Gestapo or the Soviet KGB.

Unfortunately for Scafidi, he has apparently missed our articles where we acknowledged that a majority of FBI agents are good and decent people, who bring honor to the law enforcement community. Our criticism is directed at the leadership of the agency and those agents who don’t stand up to principle and honor their oath to the Constitution and allow themselves to be used as pawns in the game between the DOJ and the former administration.

Scafidi is quick to blame Law Enforcement Today for a lunatic (who we venture has never read our publications) who decided to attack a Cincinnati FBI office. However we are willing to bet Scafidi held his tail firmly between his legs when back in 2020 Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi, Ilhan Omar, and others referred to federal law enforcement officers as “Gestapo,” “Storm Troopers,” and “occupying armies.”

Scafidi has been challenged to a public debate by our National Director, Kyle Reyes, but like a typical keyboard warrior, he has refused to accept the challenge. Because it is much easier to throw bombs on social media than to defend your position.

Scafidi complains because some of our authors write under pseudonyms, but given the state of the FBI and Department of Justice, can anyone really blame them? With the Biden administration poised to unleash an additional 87,000 IRS agents, does Scafidi not think they might be unleashed on some of our writers because they take a position against the administration?

Put it this way. If the FBI can target a former president for a raid under questionable circumstances, what is to stop them from targeting one of our writers? That’s right…nothing. And, in the new “doxing” era, maintaining a measure of anonymity protects these writers who also have full-time jobs. Clearly the political left isn’t beyond making stuff up to make life miserable for people with whom they disagree.

Scafidi accuses Law Enforcement Today of pushing “disinformation” yet all of our materials are sourced from mainstream outlets. He then launches a personal attack on Reyes, insinuating because LET posts articles he disagrees with it, that therefore constitutes “misinformation” and therefore Reyes isn’t a Christian. Quite a stretch there.

This “retired FBI agent” then links to a post we recently published, where former CIA Director Michael Hayden implied that the former president should be executed under the espionage act. Mind you, we never said that Hayden advocated for that. We merely noted that by responding to a post on Twitter suggesting the espionage statute might apply to Trump, it seemed Hayden agreed with the premise.

Our friend then goes on to engage in a bunch of ad hominem attacks on Reyes, which if anyone knows him he is not going to sit there and take, so he once again challenged Scafidi to a debate, in public, live-streamed to over one million people. He deflected once again, instead repeatedly suggesting that Reyes is a Russian bot.

Reyes, who has over 115,000 followers on his public figure page (found here), who has been the keynote speaker at countless events across America and done literally hundreds of media appearances, including countless interviews on national media outlets.

Yeah… a “Russian bot”.  Because when you lack the spine to crawl out from behind your computer and debate a real man… you continue with the “Russia” hoax.  How very FBI leadership of him.

Scafidi even went so far as to violate our copyrighted logo on LinkedIn in a series of unhinged posts about Law Enforcement Today. He claims LET maintains “incestuous connections” on our website and claims us to be “indistinguishable from any number of extreme right wing political individuals and groups.”

Poor Frank…he seems to have a bit of an obsessive/compulsive attraction to Law Enforcement Today. Frankly, if he was a bit sane we might be flattered, but his obsession instead feels like Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction.

Frankie then takes to doxing some of our writers as well as our founder, Robert Greenberg. He takes one particular writer to task, Jim Patrick who is admittedly writing under a pseudonym for the previously mentioned reasons. Jim is passionate in his writings about the FBI because the politicization of this once-proud law enforcement agency has become untenable. It is literally at the point where the FBI is taken as seriously as an article on the Babylon Bee; it has become a parody of itself.

How bad is it? People are questioning the conclusion that Alec Baldwin in fact had to have pulled the trigger during the tragedy on the movie set where a director was killed. Nobody believes a word that comes out of Christopher Wray anymore. That isn’t us saying it…public polling is saying it.

That is sad for the dedicated men and women who abide by their oath to uphold the constitution, who are good and decent people and who are excellent investigators. Sadly their reputation has been tarnished along with the political hacks who populate the upper echelons of the FBI.

Could Jim be a little bit more “diplomatic?” Perhaps. But if one looks at the tactics employed by the agency over the past 5-6 years, the comparison between the Stasi and the FBI is pretty close, minus the killings.

Our friend then attacks our founder, Captain Greenberg, a good and decent man – who stepped back from the company several years ago to focus on his charitable work in the non-profit space.  He links to an article on something called “BoingBoing”, a slanderous blog which accuses Law Enforcement Today’s tagline, “In Unity There is Strength” of having some ties to Benito Mussolini, therefore the site is populated by a bunch of fascists. We can guarantee that nothing could be farther from the truth.

So obsessed with Law Enforcement Today that Scafidi took time out of his day of eating Hot Pockets and playing Call of Duty that he actually wrote a letter to Greenberg, begging him to stop his writers from publishing under pseudonyms. Because if Frankie truly is a retired FBI agent (we have our doubts), he would like nothing better than to have our writers’ homes raided at 4am for…something.

Frankie then decided he would get personal on Greenberg, probably because he didn’t kiss his ass in replying to his email. “Thanks for your feedback, Frank,” was the reply. What did he want, a gift card to Taco Bell or something? Did he expect Greenberg to reply,” Thanks for your concern. We will cut these people who offend your sense of virtue immediately?”

Scafidi then decides to mock Capt. Greenberg because he happens to work in a small community. Coming from an alleged former FBI agent, it’s understandable how our hero might look down upon such a small department in a small town.

Apparently he isn’t aware that crime happens everywhere, even on small communities where there is a lot of money. Is it “over-supervised” as Scafildi mocks? Perhaps but evidently whoever is running the community is ok with that.

Oh, and that damn mission statement…it has more words than town residents! The humanity! He does complain that the community isn’t a criminal-infested cesspool like South Central LA or Chicago, but then again, how many towns or cities are?

Frankie then goes back to complaining about “phony, politically slanted and occasionally borderline racist material.” We willingly admit we slant to the right, to the side of freedom and liberty, personal responsibility, love of God, country and our Constitution. If that offends Mr. Scafidi, we’ll take that as a badge of honor.

The fact of the matter is, people such as Frankie Scafidi, the alleged former FBI agent, don’t bother us. We love to engage with the haters.

It would just be nice if some of them had the intestinal fortitude to engage with us in person, mano a mano so to speak. C’mon Frankie. Take up Kyle on his offer to debate you…it won’t cost you a thing…except your man card.

Reyes: We’re facing the collapse of law enforcement in America. It will lead to the end of our country as we know it.

Editor’s note:  In what has become something of an annual tradition (sadly), Law Enforcement Today writes about the challenges facing not only law enforcement, but our country in general.

These articles have proven to be among the most popular we post. When we started this series, we thought things were pretty bad. However, since January 20, 2021 – things have gotten much, much worse.

In 2020 during the run up to the November election, we tried to warn people what our country was up against, and what the Democrats had in mind. Sadly, but not surprisingly, we have found ourselves to be right.

Law Enforcement Today is written primarily for law enforcement officers and those who support law enforcement. However, our audience has expanded to include those who support our military, our Constitution and all the liberty and freedom it guarantees and are God-fearing patriotic Americans.

A lot of our readers ask how you can get involved. With that in mind, we invite you to prayerfully consider our membership program—LET Unity. The proceeds raised from that program are used to reinvest into capturing more stories about the heroes who protect us at home on our law enforcement agencies, and those who protect us abroad in the United States military.

The majority of our content producers for Law Enforcement Today are active, retired or wounded law enforcement officers.  The revenue we make helps provide for their families and helps bring a TRUE voice about what’s happening in America.

For the rest of you… simply keep following, keep reading, and keep sharing. Especially sharing…the more people who read these stories, the better it is for our law enforcement and military brethren.

I, [name], do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So, help me God.

On July 4, 1776, a group of patriots decided they had suffered enough at the hands of the British monarchy. On that date, at tremendous risk of their own personal safety and more so their very lives, they put quill to paper and signed the greatest document ever forged. A document that gave birth to the greatest country ever to grace the face of the earth—the United States of America.

Yet here we are, 245 years nearly to the day that document was signed, and we find our country at a crossroads. When you look at all the great dynasties in the history of the world, all of them eventually collapsed. The Roman Empire…the British Empire…they number many.

Mortality.

It’s something that you don’t really consider when you’re young.  You can do anything.  You’re invincible.

But as we grow older, we start considering that mortality.

With all of that in mind, it’s time we start considering the mortality of America.

I spend a substantial amount of time working in two different arenas – the world of law enforcement and the business world.

By day, I run a marketing agency. Among the areas we work in, we do extensive work in the firearms industry.  My travels take me across the country – often to some of the most rural parts of America.

By night, I am the National Spokesman for Law Enforcement Today.  I’m not a police officer.  I was tapped because I can do one thing cops can’t do.  I can give them a voice.  I can run my mouth and no agency can fire me.

That travel that I referenced – both in the business world and supporting the LE world – has afforded me countless opportunities to work side by side with some of the greatest patriots in America.

My closest friends are either in law enforcement or either active or retired members of some of the most elite military forces in America.  And from our greatest warriors to our everyday citizens… I can tell you the underlying fear that so many are thinking about – and that’s the seemingly inevitable collapse of society if we don’t make some monumental changes.

As a Christian, I believe we are in the middle of some serious spiritual warfare.  But you don’t have to be a Christian to understand that the very soul of America is under attack right now.  And the rapid erosion of the Thin Blue Line has us sitting on a powder keg.

Historically, if you look at the collapse of some of the greatest empires in the world, it happened from within.  Simply put, it raises the distinct danger that America won’t be conquered by foreign enemies … but rather from domestic ones.

President Ronald Reagan probably put it best when he said, “ Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same.” Prophetic words indeed.

When historians say that an empire fell, it means that the central state no longer exercised its broad power.  That happens either because the state itself ceased to exist or because the state’s power was reduced as parts of the empire became independent of its control.

It typically doesn’t happen because of a single cause, but rather a long process.  The main factors that historically lead to imperial collapse are:

  • Economic issues
  • Social and cultural issues
  • Environmental issues
  • Political issues

Now none of these factors are causes in and of themselves, but rather are ways to categorize causes.

What that means is you wouldn’t decide that Rome fell because of politics, but rather you’d explore political factors to understand the collapse.  And in those issues are warning signs for us as Americans.

That brings me to the threat we face today.

Have you ever heard of something called the Cloward-Piven strategy? It’s not exactly something the mainstream media talks about… but it’s something you need to be aware of, because it’s what we’re facing in America today.

American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven created the political strategy in 1966.  The idea behind it is to overload the U.S. public welfare system to create a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a socialist system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”.

If that doesn’t describe what we’re seeing from Democrats who are running Congress and the White House right now, I don’t know what does.  But it’s a much bigger threat than you might realize.  That’s because it’s so incredibly pervasive.  It’s poisoning the very roots of America.

And it calls to mind the words of Jefferson:

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.”

We are seeing groups here in America demanding open borders.  Demanding the decriminalization of crossing into our country illegally. Since Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, we have seen our southern border over-run, not only from Mexican citizens but by people from all around the world, including some on terrorist watch lists.

Joe Biden assigned his vice president, Kamala Harris to oversee the border crisis, but in nearly three months since being given that assignment, Harris has not visited the border first-hand to see exactly what is going on—not once.

At the same time, across our great country, we are seeing the CRIMINALIZATION of law enforcement. All across the country, from Minneapolis to Portland, Los Angeles through Chicago to New York, there is a literal war on police. Major cities such as Seattle, Portland, Chicago and New York are seeing officers either retire early or outright leave. Morale in police departments across the country is in the toilet.

We’re seeing agencies desperate for officers, because as more and more retire (or count down the minutes to retirement), we see a deficit in the number of incoming recruits.  After all, why would you want to live a life of service when you’re just going to be attacked for that service?

In the aftermath of the George Floyd death in Minneapolis a year ago, we have seen primarily Democrats across the country demanding defunding of police, taking away protections such as qualified immunity from officers, and emasculating police to the point where even when they are completely justified in using deadly physical force, neo-Marxist groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa take to the streets to cause death and destruction.

One of the demands from activists was that police officers be required to be issued body cameras, which many jurisdictions have done. Yet, when police are put in the position of having to use deadly physical force, what is shown on the body cameras is not believed, called edited footage. It’s a classic heads I win, tails you lose for law enforcement officers.

We see political activists masquerading as police chiefs.  We see them working hand in hand with liberal politicians to not only attack the rights of law-abiding citizens, but also to destroy the morale of their own departments. We watch as they flat out disrespect the oath of office they took and put officers in no-win situations. Last year in the wake of the George Floyd death, we saw police chiefs kneeling on the ground with the very people who want them dead.

If I were to design a road map for how to collapse America, starting with law enforcement, here’s what it would look like.

Step one: Divide the protectors.

The refusal to allow rank and file patrol officers to cooperate with federal law enforcement to uphold the law.  It’s a slap in the face to Americans and it’s a dereliction of duty. It’s also a clear and intentional move to create a divide between local, state and federal law enforcement.  Divide the protectors… conquer a society.

Step two: Divide the supporters.

Force officers to choose between enforcing unconstitutional legislation like Red Flag laws, which deny citizens of their right to due process… and providing for their own family.

Since the beginning of  the coronavirus pandemic last year, we’ve seen draconian emergency orders put in place by power-hungry governors, with police officers being put in the position of having to be COVID cops or face discipline. We’ve seen videos of police officers arresting people at high school football games for not wearing a mask, breaking up groups of Hasidic Jews at a funeral in New York City and shutting down a gym in New Jersey for breaking COVID rules.

Make cops the bad guys.  Take the people who have historically supported law enforcement and convince them that cops are now the enemy.  Divide the supporters… conquer a society.

Step three: Remove their protection

Make cops afraid to be cops.  Encourage disrespect on them like water bucket attacks.  Don’t go after the criminals who attack them.  When officers arrest criminals, let them back out on the street within hours because a liberal judge determined that the violent suspect with a lengthy criminal history isn’t actually a threat.

In city after city across the country, we have seen George Soros-funded district attorneys such as George Gascon in Los Angeles, Kim Foxx in Chicago, Larry Krasner in Philadelphia and scores of others go light on criminals while going hard after police officers.

Then threaten law enforcement officers that if they do their job, they’ll be investigated.  That if they have to fight for their lives, they’ll end up being charged.  Remove both their desire and their ability to police.

Step four: Flood America  

By some estimates, one million people will make illegal entry into America this year.

There are fewer than 850,000 law enforcement officers in America.  Do the math.

Now let criminals create havoc in society but instead of deporting them or actually cracking down on crime, let Americans know that the real problem is guns owned by law abiding citizens and pass legislation to take away their rights.

Step five: Destroy our homes

Own the media.  Own Hollywood.  Force feed Anti-American, socialist and communist policies into our homes and our education system.  Convince our children that right is wrong and wrong is right.  Take God out of society, destroy the family structure and teach everyone that the solution to your problems is in the form of pills, porn and the government.

Step six: Destroy our schools

Keep children out of school for over a year for in-person learning. Feed kids anti-American propaganda such as the 1619 Project which teaches America was founded on racist principles by a bunch of white racist men. Erase history and replace it with critical race theory, which teaches white children to hate themselves and believe they have special privilege because of their race. Go completely against Dr. Martin Luther King’s edict that skin color is more important than the content of one’s character.

Step seven: Destroy our military and intelligence agencies

Turn our military and intelligence agencies into indoctrination mills where sexual preference or sexual identity is considered to be of primary importance while the more important mission of looking at what those who seek to destroy us are doing and making sure that the primary focus of the military is on killing people and breaking things, now the sexual identity of a soldier’s parents.

Step eight: Bypass Congress for gun control 

Have “private businesses” like Dicks and Walmart determine what you can and can’t buy. Let the White House determine by executive order what is and what is not an “assault rifle.”

Step nine: Lose control of the truth to tech tyrants and mainstream media

Allow Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, YouTube, LinkedIn, TikTok, and Snapchat determine what you can see and what you can say… because it’s not a violation of the Constitution if it’s done by private enterprise. Allow social media to have unfettered ability to censor content that they do not politically agree with or people who have an opinion that goes against the politically desirable narrative.

Step ten: Use “social justice” to vilify love of country 

Take every patriotic American who wants to see a better country for their children and call them a racist, etc. if you don’t agree with them.  Then mass report them on social media to make sure their accounts are cancelled, and their voices are shut down.

Then say you think they’re a threat and have a judge determine that combat veterans and our nation’s greatest warriors need to be disarmed because of post-traumatic stress.  Then force officers to go to war with their own brothers and sisters.

Take people who had legitimate concerns about last November’s election and who raised serious questions about events which made no sense and put them in the category of conspiracy theorists or worse yet, insurrectionists hell-bent on the destruction of the American way of life, which is absurd.

The Collapse

It’s happening right in front of our eyes.  And it’s starting with a full onslaught against our law enforcement officers in every way, shape and form.

Want to save America?  We need to start by understanding the enemy.  And sometimes the biggest threat that an empire faces is the enemy within.

We hope you’ll consider getting in the fight with us.  Here’s what Law Enforcement Today – the largest police-owned media outlet in America – is doing.

We at Law Enforcement Today want to make our stance very clear.

We strongly and firmly stand behind the Second Amendment, companies that keep civilians and law enforcement officers safe through products and innovation, and the men and women who serve and protect our communities and our country.

We are launching a new series of options to help our partners and other patriotic businesses to be able to connect with consumers. While we can’t replace Google, Bing or Facebook – we sure can provide options to ensure that these companies and our brothers and sisters have a voice.

We welcome with open arms companies that openly support law enforcement, and we are proud to offer them options to get their products to market.

We started noticing the problems a couple of years ago.  Social media was scaling back the reach of content that it didn’t believe people should see. Those problems continue today, with both myself as well as the founder of Law Enforcement Today, Robert Greenberg being kicked off of LinkedIn.

Not that there was anything offensive about it.  We’re talking about pro-police videos, stories about patriotic Americans and more.

And from our perspective, that created a huge problem.  We have some of the greatest warriors in the world.  Yet their voices and their stories were being buried.

The mainstream media, on the rare occasion that it would tell some of these stories, would give you only a piece of them.  They’d cram as much as they could into a 90 second segment, slap their bias on it and that was it.

We needed to fix it. And so we are.

Law Enforcement Today (LET) is proud to announce the launch of LET Unity – a new home focused on bridging the gap between civilians and civil servants.  We’ve merged with The Whiskey Patriots to massively expand content, rolling out hundreds of videos to members.

Many of those in our focus groups dubbed it the “Netflix of the law enforcement community”.  But the truth is, it’s so much more.

The first officer in the door at the Pulse nightclub shooting.

Emergency responders from the Parkland shooting.

The bomb squad that responded to the Aurora movie theater massacre.

Survivors of the Dallas five killings.

The first Marine Guard hostage in the Iran crisis.

The CIA agent who started a counter human trafficking company.

SWAT teams.

Sniper schools.

World War II veterans.

And so, so much more.

The membership is less than the cost of two coffees a month, and those who sign up for an annual membership will get some surprise bonuses in the mail.  We decided to charge a nominal fee so we could take all of the proceeds and reinvest them into capturing more of these stories.  The majority of our content producers for Law Enforcement Today are active, retired or wounded law enforcement officers.  The revenue we make helps provide for their families and helps bring a TRUE voice about what’s happening in America.

On top of that, we’re opening up the platform to some well-known podcasters who are going to be joining the team with some incredible content soon.

We have a problem in society.  Censorship has created an existential threat to democracy.  But even worse is the risk we run that some of these incredible stories of patriotism, hope, faith and our Sheepdogs would be lost.

We’ve launched a series of content with Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) to share the stories of survivors.  We will also be dropping a weekly law enforcement focused newscast that addresses some of the most important topics in the country… and helps bridge the gap between those who serve and those whom they serve.

On top of that, we’ll soon be rolling out a series of private discounts and special promotions to members only as a “thank you” for being a part of the family.

You can also download the app to watch the content right from your iPhone.

We hope you’ll join us in this journey, knowing that your membership is going to give a voice to those who have been silenced for so long.

Our country is currently at a crossroads, and with that, so are our brothers and sisters in law enforcement. Today more than ever, that thin blue line that protects the sheep from the wolves is more tenuous that at almost any time in our country’s history. We need to protect and endorse the sheepdogs—our police—who hold the wolves at bay. There has never been a more important time in our nation’s still young history when we need patriots to stand up and support our men and women on the front lines of this fight.

If you are one of the many companies out there that’s being censored – or you’re worried about what’s to come – don’t hesitate to reach out today. We are all in this fight together. I can be reached at [email protected]

We will not be silenced.  You shouldn’t be either.

God bless you all, and God Bless America.
