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.”

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.

Hunter Biden’s Art Dealer Had Grand Chinese Ambitions in 2015

This certainly raises a few new questions…

Published

on

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, has been heavily criticized in recent weeks, as he begins to sell hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of art to anonymous buyers around the world. As one can imagine, the idea that such vast amounts of money are pouring into the First Family without any transparency has led to concerns about foreign interests gaining a foothold in the White House via untraceable transactions. New reporting regarding Hunter Biden’s art dealer is now exacerbating those worries. The art dealer representing the president’s son has longstanding ties to China and said in 2015 that he wanted to be the art world’s “lead guy in China.” Georges Berges, who is representing Hunter Biden as he ventures into the art world, has talked about his business dealings in China in the past, but his reported ties could pose an ethics issue as he sells Biden’s art to anonymous buyers. Here is where it gets wild: Berges said in a 2015 interview with Resident that he wanted to be the art world’s leader in China. “My plan is to be the lead guy in China; the lead collector and art dealer discovering and nurturing talent from that region,” Berges said. “I plan to find and discover and bring to the rest of the world those I consider China’s next generation of modern artists.” He also said that that he believes “China’s economy is transforming the global economy and everything is changing because of a rising China,” and that he was fascinated by “cultural impact” China is “having on the world.” “Cultural power is real power. That is the reason America continues to be the capital of the world, because of its influence on culture for generations and on an unrivaled global level,” Berges also said. “And I…

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

Published

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…
