DAVIDSON: The Deep State Is A Bottomless Pit

The CIA and the FBI have betrayed the U.S. badly.

The deep state, as characterized by the recent activities of two, out of many, U.S. federal government agencies, is much deeper than we can all believe.

The CIA, created under the National Security Act of 1947, was never supposed to spy on American citizens. Its mission was “to collect, analyze, evaluate, and disseminate foreign intelligence to assist the President and senior U.S. government policymakers in making decisions relating to national security.”

It’s Getting Worse

In violation of the law, the CIA has spied on American citizens in recent years, undertaken domestic acts outside of its purview, and operated a rogue agency. Under the direction of John Brennan, a deep, slimy swamp creature, the CIA engaged in long-term illegal operations against the Trump campaign and, even after Brennan, carried it over to the Trump Administration.

Soon we might find that the CIA was involved in manipulating the 2020 election. Who knows? CIA servers positioned in Germany Pakistan, Iran, or Russia, might have received election data which was then recalibrated in some way and sent back to the US. Why does this relay even exist?

With a ‘Biden Administration,’ if it were to happen, the CIA would grow ever more powerful, eventually manipulating nearly every aspect of American politics, let alone foreign policy and defense.

Drifting off Course

Gina Haspel, the first female CIA director, has intentionally slow-walked legitimate Freedom of Information requests and knowingly impeded lawful investigations into agency activities. Meanwhile, the CIA is supposed to consist of dedicated personnel who watch out for the welfare of American citizens and American interests around the globe.

Haspel apparently is maintaining some sort of loyalty to staff and peers, but this is not part of her job description. She needs to be loyal to the country and her oath of office. Haspel should be fired and walked out of her office immediately, with all files, computers, and records kept out of her reach forevermore, as a thorough investigation takes place as to why she has resisted.

FBI: Uncooperative, Unlawful, and Inept

A second U.S. federal government agency, among so many others, has been unlawful, inept, uncooperative, and even diabolical. Before James Comey, going back to Robert Mueller, and even before him, the agency had gone rogue.

The FBI selectively pursues certain cases and individuals, and selectively ignores others. The agency’s allegiance to the U.S., to the Department of Justice, and to its own mission has strayed so far off course, one wonders why anyone aspires to lead the agency. James Comey, in particular, is deceitful, cunning, and treasonous. While not on the same level as J. Edgar Hoover, Comey has flouted the law so often that he belongs in prison, now.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions didn’t have the chops to take any action. Bill Barr moved more slowly than a sloth in hibernation. Why he didn’t act on many issues is a mystery for the ages: Comey has already lied under oath to Congress. Yet Barr and company did nothing.

Some pundits concluded that Barr had bigger fish to fry, but months and years rolled by and Barr seemed frozen. He failed miserably regarding Jeffrey Epstein, Hunter Biden, and the 2020 election. He is now a monumental disgrace to the agency.

The FBI is a Disaster in the Making

Under Christopher Wray, the FBI is not much better than under Comey. Wray is a complete weasel. He has a pained look every time he’s in front of Congress: He knows he’s not telling the whole story. He is either an outright never-Trumper or a secret never-Trumper who is doing little to restore trust in the agency.

No one knows what Wray is up to, but whatever it is, it portends badly for our country. He claims, for example, that Antifa is not an organization, merely an ideology.

During the 2020 election fiasco, the FBI had been tasked to investigate. Wray promptly delayed for six to eight days, and even then, did about one fiftieth of what could be done. Like Gina Haspel, Wray needs to be fired immediately; walked out of the building; and have all his files, computers, software, thumb drives, etc., analyzed.

For now, let’s merely say that the CIA and the FBI are not the institutions that they once were, have betrayed the U.S. badly, and will not improve without major reorganization.

Capitol Cop Charged with Obstruction After Coaching Rioters on Social Media

His arrest came over nine months after the Capitol riot itself.

Published

Over the course of the next several months, (or more), we will be inundated with stories pertaining to the adjudication of cases stemming from the events of January 6th, and we certainly aren’t going to like everything that we hear.

For some, it will be the realization that some of these insurrectionists did indeed mean to do harm to our elected officials, including then-VP Mike Pence.  For others there will be angst as Obama-appointed judges ignore prosecutors’ requests and tack on additional jail time for those convicted in the incident.

And, for a great many of us, there will be some concerns about the possibility that participants in the incident were propelled and protected by Capitol Police. 

A 25-year veteran of the U.S. Capitol Police force was charged Friday with trying to protect a man who was later accused of illegally entering the Capitol during the January 6 riot.

A grand jury indictment charged Officer Michael Angelo Riley with repeatedly telling the man to delete all social media that would provide proof of entering the building that day.

“[I’]m a capitol police officer who agrees with your political stance,” Riley said in a Facebook direct message, according to the indictment. “Take down the part about being in the building they are correctly investigating and everyone who was in the building is going to be charged. Just looking out!”

Riley was arrested on Friday, some 9+ months after the storming of the Capitol itself, which appears to indicate just how far we are from the end of this issue.

Brutal Hashtag Trends on Twitter as Biden Blamed for Supply Chain Disaster

Americans are NOT happy!

Published

on

Problems are continuing to pile up for President Joe Biden, and the nation at large has certainly taken notice.

Biden’s first nine months in office have been nothing but trouble, in all honesty, and the Democratic Party isn’t even trying to hide that fact anymore.  Between the border crisis, the labor shortage, and his inability to get even the most basic bits of his agenda passed in Congress, it appears at times that the administration is simply doomed.

Now, with a supply chain issue bearing down on the nation as well, Twitter users are placing the blame squarely on the Commander in Chief in a brutal fashion.

The hashtag #EmptyShelvesJoe shot to the top of the trending topics on Twitter Thursday amid the supply chain crisis threatening the nation’s economy and holiday shopping.

Social media users employed the tagline to rip President Biden for empty shelves and skyrocketing prices caused by a backlog of shipping containers waiting to dock at California ports.

And they weren’t holding back.

“Just went food shopping…again…thanks #EmptyShelvesJoe I really love having to go every day now in order to find what used to take one trip,” one account wrote, along with a photo of near-empty shelves at a grocery store.

“I’m pretty sure @JoeBiden and the Democrats in DC are eating just fine and are having no issues getting what they need,” another Twitter user posted. “The rest of us lowly Americans who actually go to the grocery stores, not so much. #EmptyShelvesJoe.”

Biden recently announced that the federal government would be easing restrictions for port employees in an effort to expand working hours and power through the logjam.
