WASHINGTON, DC- Nothing to see here folks. Ignore the fact the FBI just raided the home of a former president and likely future opponent of the incumbent.
Don’t think about the fact that dozens of individuals from within the inner circle of that former president have been subject of raids, search warrants, and subpoenas.
Moreover ignore the fact that the current occupant of the Oval Office recently referred to supporters of that former president number about half the country as “violent domestic terrorists.”
That is why the recent move to continue the so-called “national emergency” declared by President George W. Bush after the September 11 terrorist attacks should send shudders down the spine of not only supporters of former President Trump but all clear-thinking Americans. Power corrupts…absolute power corrupts, absolutely.
In making the declaration earlier this week, the White House claimed there is an ongoing state of national emergency, not because of Islamic terrorists as it was 21 years ago, but because of something else:
The actions of persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support terrorism continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.
For this reason, the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001, as amended, and the measures adopted to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond September 23, 2022.
Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency with respect to persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support terrorism declared in Executive Order 13224, as amended.
You got that? But wait…this is not about outside threats…it is about “inside” threats, of the kind Joe Biden mentioned in his dystopian Stalinist speech in Philadelphia a couple of weeks ago.
You remember that, where Biden had a blood red background worthy of a devil-worship gathering with two United States Marines used as props as if to signal support of his wild claims by the United States military, which he commands.
A number of sources reported this past week, including Law Enforcement Today, about a number of FBI whistleblowers who have warned the FBI, under the feckless leadership of Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland are “exaggerating the threat of white supremacists and pressuring agents to cook up domestic terrorist cases involving racist extremists.”
“Current and former FBI agents told The Washington Times that the perceived white supremacist threat is overblown by the administration,” a report in the Times read. “They said top bureau officials are pressuring FBI agents to create domestic terrorist cases and tag people as white supremacists to meet internal metrics.”
In addition, the FBI is taking cases which originated out of the Washington DC Field Office and transferring them to where the subjects come from, cases emanating from the January 6 US Capitol breach.
This is being done to make it appear that violent domestic extremism is more widespread than it really is. Most of these cases involve low-level crimes, such as trespassing and parading as opposed to the narrative being pushed by the January 6 lynch squad of a “widespread conspiracy” which was hatched and facilitated by former President Trump.
According to one whistleblower, the leaders of the FBI “have already determined that white supremacy is a problem,” and have embarked on policies prioritizing the finding of incidents of racial violence to fit the narrative of “domestic terrorism.”
Ironically, the FBI took no such action against the suspect in the Waukesha, Wisconsin parade attack, where a black nationalist mowed down parade participants and attendees, all white, killing five people and injuring dozens.
Oh, and Biden couldn’t make the time to travel to Wisconsin to comfort mourners, instead sending his wife and the husband of giggles, Kamala Harris. Probably busy popping a cap on old Corn Pop.
“We are sort of the lapdogs as the actual agents doing these sorts of investigations, trying to find a crime to fit otherwise First Amendment-protected activities,” one whistleblower said. “If they have a Gadsden flag and they own guns and they are mean at school board meetings, that’s probably a domestic terrorist” according to the new FBI “standards.”
According to the piece, the FBI classifies racial violence only as when a white commits violence against any “person of color.” If the facts swing the other way, that is not considered to be a potential act of “domestic terrorism.”
See how that works?
According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a 2020 probe found that so-called “think tanks” use “politicized terrorism data” to fit a particular narrative, that of the left who claim that “right wing extremists” and “white supremacists” constitute the single greatest threat to U.S. national security:
The analysis makes several arguments. First, far-right terrorism has significantly outpaced terrorism from other types of perpetrators, including from far-left networks and individuals inspired by the Islamic State and al-Qaeda. Right-wing attacks and plots account for the majority of all terrorist incidents in the United States since 1994, and the total number of right-wing attacks and plots has grown significantly during the past six years. Right-wing extremists perpetuated two thirds of the attacks and plots in the United States in 2019, and over 90 percent between January 1 and May 8, 2020. Second, terrorism in the United States will likely increase over the next year in response to several factors. One of the most concerning is the 2020 U.S. presidential election, before and after which extremists may resort to violence, depending on the outcome of the election. Far-right and far-left networks have used violence against each other at protests, raising the possibility of escalating violence during the election period.
Note the cutoff for the 2020 statistics…May 8, three weeks before violent left extremists went on their violent rampage after George Floyd’s overdose death, violence which caused over $1 billion worth of damage across the U.S. Didn’t fit the narrative, apparently.
Another interesting factoid. In the leadup to the 2020 election, Democratic Party run cities boarded up windows and doors out of fear that Trump would win. That was because they knew that violent left wing extremists would pick up where they left off earlier that year. After Biden pulled a rabbit out of his hat and somehow “won,” the boards came down…the so-called “violent right-wing extremists” never showed up.
A 2022 DHS National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin outlined how terror attacks are “somehow” misclassified as “right wing”:
- The suspect in the grocery store attack in Buffalo, New York in May 2022 claimed he was motivated by racist, anti-black, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, often referred to as the “great replacement” or “white genocide.”
- A violent attack in May 2022 in Laguna Woods, California targeted congregants of a church that serves the Taiwanese community. The attack killed one individual and wounded five others.
- In April 2022, an individual wearing a gas mask threw two smoke canisters and opened fire on a New York City subway during morning rush hour, resulting in injuries to dozens of individuals.
Now, how about a little truth bomb? The Buffalo mass shooter had leftist leanings and hated Fox News, hardly a far-right zealot.
The NYC subway mass shooter was a black nationalist and Black Lives Matter supporter.
The man who killed a police officer during an attack at a barrier at the US Capitol in July 2021 was a devoted follower of Louis Farrakhan and a Nation of Islam Supporter.
Salvador Ramos, the suspect in the Uvalde, Texas mass shooting is Hispanic and definitely not a “white supremacist.”
The Laguna woods shooting suspect is a Chinese nationalist upset about Taiwan.
Finally, a suspect from a hospital shooting in Tulsa, Oklahoma was initially identified as a “white supremacist,” a bit of a stretch since he was a black male who had a grudge against a staff doctor.
These are but a few of a number of incidents which were, in some cases, initially attributed to white supremacy or violent white nationalism, or far right extremism. Many of the cases which do not fit the narrative are merely ignored, hoping they just “go away.”
The scary part about all of this is the fact the Biden administration isn’t even trying to hide the fact that they are using the machinations of the federal law enforcement and intelligence communities to target political opponents. The White House recently announced the creation of a DOJ task force tasked with combating “domestic terrorism.”
The agents’ revelations coincide with President Biden’s “United We Stand” summit Thursday at the White House. The summit built upon the administration’s push to root out facially motivated domestic violent extremists, which included the creation of a specialized Justice Unit to combat domestic terrorism.
Ironically, months after the incident occurred, neither Biden nor the vice giggler have addressed the assassination plot on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh…not a word. That plot was hatched by a radical pro-abortion nut upset with the notion that the ability of leftists to kill babies on demand might be taken away, which it thankfully was.
But have no fear. The FBI denies targeting groups according to their political ideology or racial identity. You know, like people who showed up at the Capitol on Jan. 6…parents at school board meetings…people who wear red MAGA hats. The FBI would never target such people.
