For those working for the FBI, particularly in the Hoover building or the Washington Field Office, allow me to offer a little career advice: Quit.
Anyone who cares about law enforcement, the rule of law, and the Constitution, should not associate with the criminal gang that the bureau is quickly becoming. If you want to terrify innocent Americans, scoff at Congress, and lie to courts, then the FBI is the right place for you. Those who care about their reputations for integrity should flee the FBI as quickly as possible.
Legitimacy in a republic originates with the consent of the governed. A president wields legitimate constitutional authority because he stands for an election. The FBI has no independent authority under the Constitution. Yet instead of deferring to its constitutional masters, the FBI now brazenly interferes in these elections.
In May, the Harvard Caps Harris Poll revealed that a whopping 70 percent of registered voters, “are very concerned about future interference by the FBI and intelligence agencies in elections.” The poll also indicated that 69 percent of respondents were not surprised the FBI violated its own policy to start the Russian collusion probe.
The FBI and Justice Department have simply reinforced the public perception of a two-tiered justice system with the recent news of Hunter Biden’s sweetheart no-jail plea deal. According to the Washington Post, Hunter will receive two years of probation and an agreement to not prosecute on additional charges. Under the agreement, Hunter faces no sanction for participating in $1.2 million in secret deals with foreigners seeking to influence his father. This is because, in the minds of the totally corrupt Washington establishment, the bribes aren’t the problem. Forgetting to pay taxes on the bribes is the problem. But only if you’re a connected Democrat.
As for the charges related to purchasing a firearm while habitually using drugs? The Justice Department will dismiss that charge after he completes a diversion program. Meaning Hunter will be free to continue voting and buying firearms with no felony conviction. The Post story did not indicate whether Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss will also administer a soothing shoulder rub to Hunter as he signs the plea agreement. It was all handled in private and between “gentlemen.” And we can now be sure Hunter will be spared the public relations assault and leaking the FBI reserves for its political enemies.
We’ve moved way past the “few bad apples,” excuse. The FBI is a tool of leftist power. The activists carrying badges have convinced themselves that they’re fighting the next Hitler. Anything goes because if they lose, baby Hitler will bring about a “Handmaid’s Tale” dystopia of forcing women into knock-off puritan cloaks tailored for forced maternity.
With unchecked power and gleeful cruelty, the FBI has devolved into thuggery. It stages and invents crimes more often than it solves them.
If one sees “FBI” on an applicant’s résumé, it’s worth wondering what this applicant will do once he or she gains a perch within an organization.
We know from the Twitter files that FBI alumni liaison with active FBI personnel to convert social media into agents of unofficial government censorship. The agency will push politically convenient narratives about the scourge of anti-LGBTQ white supremacist violence while suppressing stories about real violence by political allies.
We know, too, that FBI personnel are happy to intrude upon the most private details of the lives of innocent Americans. They have made blackmail and intimidation an art form and can quickly gain influence or even dominion over people foolish enough to trust them.
Inviting a former FBI attorney or agent into an organization might help achieve dark goals using dark means. But if integrity is the goal, an FBI alumnus is not the person one wants anywhere near information or power that can be abused. Because they always are inclined to abuse power—often without even any awareness that they might be doing something wrong. It’s just standard practice.
The same goes for the Justice Department. There are surely pockets within the Justice Department that might remain professional and apolitical. But as a whole, these are not people who understand or care about equal application of the law. When they say they “took an oath to uphold the Constitution,” what they really mean is that they don’t have to answer to anyone except the Constitution which they have neither read nor care to understand.
Nobody in the FBI cares about the constitutional prohibitions against illegal searches and seizures, free speech, free exercise of religion, or the Second Amendment. When Attorney General Merrick Garland says he believes in the “rule of law,” what he really means is that he believes politicized lawyers can and should be able to abuse the law to take out any political opponent.
A résumé showing experience in the Justice Department regarding anything involving politics, counterintelligence, or civil rights, is becoming career poison for people in the know. Hiring firms can assume that FBI and Justice Department personnel care nothing for the law. These ruthless bullies just want their side to win at all costs.
FBI and Justice Department officials get away with nearly any misconduct without prosecution. Why would any sane manager hire somebody from a culture so lacking in accountability? It’s not enough to violate the law for an FBI employee to get fired. An employee must do something that either undermines the political masters or offends the left-wing thugs who set the agenda for both agencies.
The raid on Mar-a-Lago and the bogus documents indictment might not have been so obviously political if they applied the same legal interpretations to Democrats. But the FBI and the Justice Department actively obstruct and cover-up any inquiry that might hurt a Democrat. They leak excessively when the information, often false, hurts their political opponents. But if the information hurts an ally, it’s all “sources and methods,” and “protecting the integrity of the investigation.”
Most of the country now thinks the FBI encouraged violence on January 6, 2021. It’s starting to look like the FBI infiltrated a legitimate protest to provoke enough violence to justify the Soviet-style mass arrests that followed. Nothing Merrick Garland or FBI Director Christopher Wray say to the contrary can be believed. Both rebuff indisputable evidence of political corruption with obvious lies about the evenhandedness of these politicized organizations.
The lies themselves are a power flex, rubbing congressmens’ noses in their own impotence. Justice Department officials don’t respect Congress and have no fear of its oversight. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover maintained control over Congress with secret blackmail files. Has anything changed? Elections come and go. The FBI’s power just grows and grows.
For now, nobody in the country is both willing and able to stop the FBI or the Justice Department as its tentacles continue to strangle constitutional checks and balances. But it will not always be so. The resentment towards these corrupt organizations continues to build with each anti-democratic victory they achieve.
One day, the people will finally gain the upperhand and expel these cancers.
And when these lawyers and agents look for new jobs, they will not be welcome at any place that prizes integrity, honesty, and fairness. For the rest of their careers they will struggle to find some niche for doing jobs that make people hate them. If that’s how they want to be perceived, then they’re in the right place working for the FBI or the Justice Department. Otherwise, FBI and Justice Department personnel should immediately start looking for honest work. Because the organizations they serve are becoming pariahs.
