The information that has been released from the FBI files on the Flynn case and the House Investigation of the Russia probe is surprisingly clear. When subjected to the light of day there is no way to disguise the fact that federal law enforcement personnel at the highest levels deliberately conspired to railroad President Trump’s National Security Advisor out of office and into a criminal conviction.
There was no legal justification for this but they figured out a way to blackmail Flynn into it. And they did it because they figured once they had stripped Flynn away from the new President, they could use the Russia hoax to get a special prosecutor appointed and use that office to attack the new administration in concert with the press and the deep state. If that isn’t treason, I don’t know what is.
Contemplating that the Justice Department of the United States felt no hesitation to commit these acts during the commencement of a new Presidential Administration surely should give any American pause when considering whether his own constitutional rights are secure in the United States. Other than unimportance what makes me think that the FBI would hesitate for a millisecond before dragging me down to one of their interrogation rooms and providing me with an even less favorable choice than the one they gave General Flynn. Imagine that an unaccountable government goon tells you that either you will plead guilty to a crime you didn’t commit, that could earn you ten years in prison or your son will be prosecuted and imprisoned for an even longer period.
In the last twenty years we have grown accustomed to the diminution of our freedoms in the name of greater security. In an alleged effort to keep Islamic terrorists from blowing up our planes every old grandmother in a wheelchair is subjected to indignities and all of us have to submit to complete surveillance of our every financial transaction and personal communication of all kinds. Of course, that hasn’t stopped obvious foreign terrorists from striking at every level of American life. And when it happens, we have to listen to harangues explaining how it’s our bigotry that inspired the violence. But we acceded to the indignities and accepted the surveillance.
But now we find that the security apparatus is our new master. All pretense that we are free men has been ended. The FBI has the means to incriminate us using these new extra-constitutional powers. And worse, they have the will to do it too. Well, I’m sorry. I no longer care whether the FBI is protecting me from Islamic terrorists or roving bands of cannibals. I want them gone. I want the President’s highest priority to be firing every last idiot with the letters FBI emblazoned across his stupid windbreaker. I don’t even care if the Russians, the Chinese and the North Koreans steal the gasoline out of my gas tank and the chimney off my house. At least they won’t be able to haul me off to the gulag for failing to genuflect to Comrade Obama and his dictatorial thugs.
The FBI from its beginnings has spied on the American people. It has spied on our leaders and it has used this spying to blackmail and coerce the government into doing its bidding. That is too dangerous a tool for our country to possess. It seems to me that the Justice Department already has plenty of employees. It needs to be dismantled. It needs its fangs pulled.
That is a tall order. It’s doubly so because the Attorney General, Bill Barr wouldn’t dream of extracting the jewel in the crown of his department. I’m not even sure he’ll clean out the viper’s nest that is responsible for the outrage they perpetrated against this country. If Barr and Durham had any sense of proportion, they would know that their precious FBI is a worse curse than the COVID-19 epidemic or the September 11th Attack. What he should do is have a press conference where he apologizes to the American people for the organized crime cartel that he’s perpetrating on the rest of us. He should fire everyone in the bureau from the top down until he finds someone who’s willing to expose the plot that we’ve lived through for the last four years. That’s what he should do. And then the President should demand Congress draft legislation to revoke the Patriot Act. And if they won’t he should have his Solicitor General petition the Supreme Court to find it unconstitutional. If the Congress squawks about that tell them to work on a constitutional amendment. That should keep them busy for about twenty years.
Anyway, this rant is to say that it’s clear we now live in a police state. It’s run by the FBI with additional surveillance provided by the tech companies. In 1984 Orwell named the security agency in his dystopia “The Ministry of Love.” If we know what’s good for us, we’ll make eliminating the Ministry of Love our highest priority. At the very least, prosecuting all the Obama apparatchiks should be a survival reflex for the Trump Administration. These people are hell bent on destroying a free society. With them having a strangle hold on our government this truly is an Orwellian nightmare. I think I’d prefer to live under a simple dictatorship. At least it would be easier to figure out the rules.
