Those of us concerned with the corrupt actions of the DOJ, especially the ones committed by Democrat apparatchiks in the FBI during the Trump Administration, from Crossfire Hurricane to the FBI’s involvement on Jan. 6th, need to take an even closer look at what that despicably corrupt organization is really up to.
While some of what it does is just and necessary, such as the FBI division responsible for tracking down child predators and those downloading or creating child porn, most of what the FBI now does seems to be either illegal or political in nature.
On one hand, the FBI spends time and resources harassing conservatives, especially Trump Administration officials. On the other hand, when the FBI is investigating actual crimes and criminals rather than political dissidents, it’s using informants and implants to encourage formerly law-abiding citizens to commit crimes and then “catch” them in the act.
One of the most prominent examples was the “plot” to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer; of the five men arrested, two were agents of the FBI. They were the ones who came up with the plan and encouraged the others, who had never considered such an action, to adopt it. The FBI effectively sponsored a crime.
Then there’s the case of Whitey Bulger, who was an FBI informant that was allowed to keep committing crimes, including murder, while reporting to the FBI. The FBI, in exchange for information, let a thug roam free and continue preying on a city.
It turns out that those are examples not of extraordinary cases but of the norm. According to the Rutherford Institute, the FBI sponsors 15 crimes a day. Here’s what that organization found:
“Whether the FBI is planting undercover agents in churches, synagogues and mosques; issuing fake emergency letters to gain access to Americans’ phone records; using intimidation tactics to silence Americans who are critical of the government, or persuading impressionable individuals to plot acts of terror and then entrapping them, the overall impression of the nation’s secret police force is that of a well-dressed thug, flexing its muscles and doing the boss’ dirty work.
For example, this is the agency that used an undercover agent/informant to seek out and groom an impressionable young man, cultivating his friendship, gaining his sympathy, stoking his outrage over the injustices perpetrated by the U.S. government, then enlisting his help to blow up the Herald Square subway station. Despite the fact that Shahawar Matin Siraj ultimately refused to plant a bomb at the train station, he was arrested for conspiring to do so at the urging of his FBI informant and used to bolster the government’s track record in foiling terrorist plots. Of course, no mention was made of the part the government played in fabricating the plot, recruiting a would-be bomber, and setting him up to take the fall.
This is the government’s answer to precrime: first, foster activism by stoking feelings of outrage and injustice by way of secret agents and informants; second, recruit activists to carry out a plot (secretly concocted by the government) to challenge what they see as government corruption; and finally, arrest those activists for conspiring against the government before they can actually commit a crime…
…In addition to creating certain crimes in order to then “solve” them, the FBI also gives certain informants permission to break the law, “including everything from buying and selling illegal drugs to bribing government officials and plotting robberies,” in exchange for their cooperation on other fronts.
USA Today estimates that agents have authorized criminals to engage in as many as 15 crimes a day (5600 crimes a year). Some of these informants are getting paid astronomical sums: one particularly unsavory fellow, later arrested for attempting to run over a police officer, was actually paid $85,000 for his help laying the trap for an entrapment scheme.”
I highly recommend that you read the rest of the report, which is available here.
Whether the number is 1, 15, or 100, the FBI shouldn’t be sponsoring crimes. It is theoretically a law enforcement organization, not a criminal syndicate. Unfortunately, in the modern era, partisan apparatchiks and thuggish agents have turned it into a cross between the FSB and bradva. It entraps civilians, carries out false flag attacks, and uses its immense resources to turn innocent citizens into criminals.
That’s not just. Democrats lie about the police, but in the case of the FBI those of us that support law and order must refuse to “back the blue.” The FBI is corrupt and undermines, rather than enforces, the law.
