The Rallying Cry of 2024 – Defund the Deep State

Let’s face it, the political activism in 2022 is a purely defensive crouch.  Taking back the House and Senate are the equivalent of bringing your arms and hands over your face while you’re on the ground being pummeled.  It’s hardly a 4D chess move.  But if we’re ever going to accomplish anything against the Leviathan in DC, we will need to starve it out.

I think the first step is to cap all federal salaries at $54,132 which is the median US salary and freeze hiring except at the discretion of the President.  Then start punishing the Deep State swamp creatures by making their lives much less fun.  Move the State Department to Baltimore and the FBI to St. Louis and reassign the sensitive jobs to direct appointees of the President.  Then reduce and simplify the income tax so it can be done with sixth grader math and convert 90% of the employees of the IRS into public restroom attendants in the high crime districts of America.

So even this guerilla warfare against the Deep State would be just the warning shots.  Whole agencies will have to be reinvented.  The FBI and the CIA have to be defanged.  In addition to repealing the Patriot Act and the FISA Courts all of the bad actors that staged the coup against Trump must be removed from positions of authority and put in charge of counting paper clips and shredding paper.  And the new work that is determined to be valuable will be given to people who won’t have the power to attack the American people again.  Those powers will be removed from the jobs.

Another priority is to legislate the venue for trials against federal employees to be in areas that don’t house large bureaucracies.  The spectacle of John Durham’s prosecutions all being acquitted proves just what kind of justice you can expect in Washington DC.

Now let’s think of what some of the consequences of this kind of change will be.  First of all, it will impoverish the Greater Washington DC area.  How great is that?  Rents and property values will collapse.  Hobo jungles will spring up in Georgetown and Chevy Chase.  PBS documentarians will be able to interview people like Antony Blinken and Merrick Garland as they huddle around a trash fire cooking their mulligan stew and hear disoriented stories about how they used to be somebody.  And DC will revert to a slightly warmer Newark, New Jersey.

I understand that there are many priorities that vie for a place among what needs to be done to save this country from the disaster that is overtaking us.  But directly attacking and taking the food out of the mouths of truly dangerous people like the deranged bureaucrats that torture us on a daily basis should be right at the top of that list.  In the long run finally getting the budget under control will require paring down the federal bureaucracy so we might as well get some fun out of it too.

And defunding the Deep State does not mean we should neglect to prosecute the bad actors who’ve done so much harm in the last few years.  I just think it will be easier and more effective if we first remove them from power.  Once you’re only earning a third of what you once were you have bigger problems than promulgating new laws on pronouns.  Instead, they’ll be concentrating on making that huge mortgage payment.  That’s the time to drag them into court to answer for their past sins.

Now the problem with all this is that legislators have a very cozy relationship with the bureaucrats.  Attacking them is tantamount to betrayal.  That is why the influx of outsiders like Marjorie Taylor Greene is such a great thing.  These people aren’t beholden to the Deep State.  The problem is they’re a handful in a sea of insiders.  This is why I almost despair of how much still has to be done.  But there’s no reason not to define the problem.  And that’s why I still bang this drum.  Carthago delenda est.

FBI Raids Mar A Lago – US Officially a Banana Republic

So they’ve taken the final step.

It’s great to see that the Stasi are doing everything they can to alienate half the country.  If we are able to take back control of the government it should be easy to find the votes to fire and cancel the pensions of most of the rats currently holed up in the Justice Department.  That should be the campaign slogan for 2022 and 2024.

So what we have are two separate standards of justice and selective enforcement based on the political alignment of the individual.  If you are Democrats or their agents you can burn down cities and even kill innocent citizens with complete impunity.  But even if you’re the former republican President of the United States you will be deprived of your constitutional protections using trumped up charges and corrupt Washington DC judges to do the bidding of Democrat political operatives in the Justice Department.

I’d say today marks the official beginning of the United States as a banana republic.  Don’t be surprised by anything.  Should really do wonders for the Democrats chances in November.  I wonder if this might get Brandon’s approval rating into the single digits by tomorrow.

Here’s a Plug for Nick Searcy’s Documentary “Capitol Punishment”

This guy reviewing the movie sounds like a normie moderate but he makes the good point that the real crime on Jan 6th was the US government treating harmless protestors as enemy combatants.  I was listening to Nick Searcy on a podcast talking about why he made the documentary and after seeing a few clips and listening to him talk about it I figure I really should see it.

The PJ Media guy makes one good point when he says emptying out the FBI is job one if we ever get control of Washington again.

FBI Batting a 1000 on Manufactured Threats, Batting 0 on Real Terrorist Attacks

Sharyl Attkisson details the litany of Muslim extremists that the FBI knew of but failed to stop from mass murdering Americans.  Then she speaks to a Congressional investigator who shows that the culture rewards manufacturing cases against right-wing targets but ignores actual Muslim, Antifa and BLM attackers.

Maybe someday a president will fire every FBI manager from top to bottom for incompetence and malfeasance.  Just a thought.

 

 

 

 

I’m Not the Only One Who Thinks the FBI Must Go

Here’s another liberal who agrees with the Right that the FBI is a fascist outfit that does more harm than good.

“The FBI has always had a policy requiring that all consequential interviews be conducted by two agents — one to ask questions, the other to take notes. Then the agents return to headquarters, where the notes are typed up. The report is known as a Form 302, and it is the official record of the interview.

The interviewees are thus placed between the proverbial rock and a hard place. If they testify, they must stick to the FBI’s version. If they deviate from the Form 302, they can be charged with having lied to the agent or, at trial, of committing perjury. Hence, there is enormous pressure on witnesses to testify not as they remember a situation, but rather in accord with the Form 302.

As a result, I’ve developed a policy of never allowing a client to be interviewed without my recording it. The agents would tell me that I’m not allowed to record the interview. I replied that I have my own policy. The agents then would leave.”

Based on what I’ve read if I ever had the FBI knock on my door I’d tell them I have nothing to say.  After watching what they’ve done to people like General Flynn I have no respect or trust in these Gestapo agents at all.

Practically Speaking, How Would a President Dismantle the FBI?

After what we’ve seen happening over the last two decades in the intelligence agencies there’s no doubt in my mind that they need to be fundamentally altered.  And I don’t think the word dismantle is an exaggeration of what needs to be done.  It could be argued that there are functions that the FBI is uniquely suited to perform that need to be done.  But I look at those functions as the exceptions.

I imagine that someone tasked with this dismantling would form a new “group within the bureau and reassign all the personnel and infrastructure critical for these useful functions to this new group.  Once that is done, he could begin dismantling the rest of the agency without too much fear of meaningful disruption.

Fire all of the top echelon of management.  Assign trusted personnel to take over and begin removing any functionality that has been abused in the past.  Using internal rules block the access to FISA courts from anyone who isn’t appointed by the new management.  Begin surveilling the use of federal resources by the FBI personnel to find anyone who is running counter-intelligence operations against the new management and the President.  And continue to prune back the agency from the top down.

Look for hidden caches of information on powerful people and figure out what this has been used in the past to blackmail them into doing.  Figure out how this information is best disposed of.  In some cases, where real crime has occurred, exposing the information may make sense.  In other cases, confronting the victim and forcing changes in the status quo may be possible.

And once power has been wrested from the FBI and other intelligence agencies then the laws that have allowed them to terrorize this nation need to be changed to prevent these abuses from recurring.  The obvious one is the Patriot Act.  The Supreme Court knows it is unconstitutional but during the supposed “War on Terror” it allowed the law to stand in order to allow unrestrained pursuit of Islamic terrorists hiding in the United States.  I think we’ve learned that the law was meant to be used against all of us.

And other laws need to be changed.  The definition of civil rights needs to be rationally defined to prevent the kind of outrageous overreach that was on display in the federal government’s interference in the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases.  And we can’t allow actual domestic terrorists like Antifa and BLM and their confederates in the blue city governments to perpetrate outrages like the George Floyd riots against American citizens.

And who would be the right person for a Republican president to appoint Attorney General?  I’m guessing it will require someone who has worked for the Justice Department.  Maybe someone like Rudy Giuliani.  He’s getting kind of old but he still might be the right guy.  But whoever it is he can’t be like William Barr who just tiptoes around the edges of the FBI and lets the swamp creatures run the show.  It has to be someone who is willing to perform radical surgery with a chain saw.  Because that is exactly what is needed.

So, will this ever happen?  If we ever want to get our country back it’s a necessity.  But it’s going to take brains and guts.  Where will we find those?

What is BLM’s Mission?

It’s in the name, right?  Black Lives Matter.  That means that blacks have been illegally targeted by the police for no good reason.  That’s been the narrative used since Obama’s regime was running the FBI.  And yet, every one of the alleged victims was a thug.  Treyvon Martin, Michael Brown, George Floyd and the rest of their less well-known associates.  Each one was killed either committing a violent assault or resisting arrest.

What that tells me is that the goal is to make black criminals immune from arrest.  This requires that the police will be prevented from using force to subdue dangerous criminals.  So, if you commit a robbery or even a murder all you have to do is resist and fight your way out of the arrest.

And how do you make something like this happen?  Easy.  You do it in blue cities and you use the FBI to frighten the cops into laying down.  After what happened to the cops who were involved in the Michael Brown and George Floyd cases it’s obvious that there will be no justice for police involved.  They will be the criminals and the thugs will be the heroes.

And now that the police have been neutered, the looting and burning is a part of daily life taken for granted by the urban dwellers in places like Portland and Seattle.  These activities are studiously ignored by the FBI.  And the FBI is the branch of the federal government that was specifically created to deal with organized crime.  But Antifa and BLM have a free pass.  They’re ignored but a kid like Kyle Rittenhouse has helicopters following him to make sure the prosecution has all the evidence they might need to send him to jail for life for trying to stop the mob from burning down another city.

I read that Ron DeSantis has enacted new legislation to arrest and jail rioters.  But he is one of few.  In all the other areas of the country the cities are devolving into lawless free-fire zones.  The woke black lesbian mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, who let the BLM riots devastate her city, even she has finally balked at the level of lawlessness that the even crazier black woman state’s attorney, Kimberly Foxx has unleashed on the city.  Foxx refused to prosecute gangs involved in a murderous shootout.  Her reason, because it was a mutually engaged in fight.  So, no charges, not even littering for filling the streets with spent bullet cartridges.  Gang war is now just part of daily life in Chicago.  Basically, that is a return to the situation when Al Capone ran whiskey back in the 1920’s.

A friend of mine is convinced that this whole approach is a ploy to allow the police to be federalized.  Maybe he’s right.  But whatever the deeper motives may be there is no doubt that the destruction of law and order will lead to dire consequences.  An obvious one is that the urban areas will become violent hellholes that all normal people will flee.  But these areas will be centers from which the criminal gangs that inhabit them will range out to commit all manner of crime against the surrounding suburban and even rural areas.  And that will be where the conflict will probably be resolved.  Eventually the states will either have to step in and rein in this organized crime or vigilantism will become the policing of last resort.

Maybe the vigilantes will brand their organization White Lives Matter.  It sounds like a concept whose time has come.

Defund the FBI

In the endless George Floyd rolling riot of 2020 and the subsequent permanent urban crime wave that now occupies all the blue cities, no one has been arrested except for people who tried to defend themselves from the mayhem.  Whether it was police officers trying to stop crime or homeowners brandishing weapons to stop rioters from invading their homes or a kid with a rifle trying to keep a mob from burning down a local business it was those trying to defend themselves from government sanctioned race rioting who were singled out for prosecution.  The local Democrats and the Justice Department conspired to encourage the destruction of these cities as a terror tactic to show white people that they were a hated class that could be attacked with impunity.  And the selective prosecution of anyone trying to stop the rampage was to prove that resistance was futile.

With the trial this week of Kyle Rittenhouse we’ll get to see just how depraved our criminal justice system has become.  All accounts of the trial describe a prosecution in disarray.  The video footage and even the testimony of one of the “victims” corroborates the defense contention that Rittenhouse was defending himself against attacks from the rioters he shot.  This week we were told by BLM activists that the jurors are being videotaped so that they can be targeted if they don’t find Rittenhouse guilty.

So where does this go?  I assume the verdict is a 50/50 proposition.  Even with a terrible case the jurors have enormous pressure on them to find him guilty.  But even if Rittenhouse is absolved on all charges, I assume that the Justice Department will immediately arrest him and charge him on trumped up weapons and civil rights charges.  And that is the point of this article.  Since the days of the Obama Justice Department, the FBI has been weaponized to allow the black underclass to commit crimes against white and even Hispanic citizens with impunity.  Treyvon Martin, Michael Brown, George Floyd and the rest of the litany of black criminals who were shot because they were committing violent crimes are the examples of this policy.  This is a clearly delineated plan to demoralize and essentially terrorize the law-abiding population of the country into submission.  They want us to surrender and surrender up whatever is asked of us in the hope that our lives will be spared.  It is a fiendish plan and it is working.

So, it is apparent what needs to be done.  The FBI has to be defanged.  And the best start to something like that is a two-pronged approach.  First, appoint an Attorney General who is not part of the old boys’ club in Washington.  It will be his job to start demolishing the senior leadership of the FBI.  Fire every single one of the cabal leaders who ran the takedown job against Donald Trump’s administration.  Then fire everyone who reported to those guys.  Then fire everyone who reported to those guys.  You get the picture.  Second, cut the budget of the FBI by about two thirds.  Take away all their toys, the armored assault vehicles and the combat weapons.  They are not the Navy Seals.

As a separate effort I think it’s time to cancel the Patriot Act.  It may have been well intentioned by some of the congressional leaders who originally drafted it but it has proven to be a license to treat American citizens as if they lived in a banana republic without any rights.  We cannot allow the government to spy on Americans as if this were East Germany.

Of course, none of this happens until a real President is in office again.  But even then, there has to be the will to do it.  With the recent string of debacles by Biden and the terrible state of the economy it’s quite possible that the Republicans will have the edge in 2024.  But it is absolutely imperative that ending the FBI’s reign of terror is a first priority in any Republican administration going forward.  If not, we can look forward to burning cities and mob violence from now on.
