The DOJ, FBI and Facebook Share A Common Thread

We see every day the abuse of power and that the law doesn’t matter.

Published

As of now, the FBI and Justice can’t seem to be able, to tell the truth, it’s just that simple. In a Rasmussen survey, people said, “ Half Say that the FBI, and DOJ Broke the Law to Block Trump Presidency.”

On the other hand, Pew Research found an astonishing fact that just 13 percent of Americans believe that the media does an excellent job covering both sides of political issues fairly. The survey also finds that a somewhat more significant number, 22 percent, believe that the media does not do this well at all.

Then there is Facebook, in a Business Insider survey they found that 81% of people surveyed said, “have little to no confidence Facebook will protect their data and privacy. The results also reported a massive, 58% of respondents said they were not at all confident about security.

Trending: AOC May Have Committed ‘Major Ethics Violation’ After Startling Discovery Uncovered

On April 9, 2018, Facebook began notifying 87 million users that their personal data may have been breached.  Just a few days ago Facebook admitted that 3 million additional user accounts were hacked. In reaction to these attacks Facebook commented, “we have no way of knowing if even more accounts have been hacked.”

The common thread among the three is a loss of trust. The FBI and Justice are out there to protect our rights and yet there is mounting evidence that the leadership of both agencies were breaking the law themselves.  They were trying to change the outcome from the election and after Hillary lost they were and are I sill believe trying to get rid of the President even if it means they will break the law to achieve that end. They think their purpose is the high ground and to achieve their goal the law doesn’t matter. Too many of the people in high places in the FBI and Justice Departments believe they are not subject to the law, and it is unimportant to them that our rights are also under attack. We see every day the abuse of power and that the law doesn’t matter. If the law enforcement leadership don’t believe in the law then what do we as a nation stand for?

The Constitution explicitly gives the Congress oversight for the FBI and Justice Department, and yet the leadership of these two agencies believes that it is the other way around. FBI and Justice think they get to decide what and when the Congress sees evidence. If the police believe that they are not accountable to anyone, then we no longer have a Democracy.

I’m in “Facebook jail” I have been locked out of my Facebook account. So I can no longer use Facebook as a platform to market my books. When I tried to find out why I was banned, this is the response I got from Facebook. “Upon investigation, we have determined that you are ineligible to use Facebook. Unfortunately, for safety and security reasons, we cannot provide additional information as to why your account was disabled. This decision is final.”

Does this Facebook statement sound like the same words coming from Justice and the FBI when the Congress asks for information on the actions of the agencies as part of their oversight responsibility? Facebook has made a decision, and they don’t have to give me any specific reason why they have banned my books. The FBI and Justice don’t tell Congress why they are not responding they say, “we’ll get it to you in the future.”

Facebook in their decision to ban my books decided to affect my life.  For the most part, many of the people in government will not challenge the FBI or Justice and many oversight committees in the past have refused to call them out to prove what they say and are doing is legal.

Who has the oversight responsibility for Facebook? The boards of directors of Facebook have that responsibility, but are they doing their job? “The sheer volume, magnitude, and frequency of Facebook’s controversies strongly suggest that the company’s whack-a-mole approach is insufficient.  Facebook needs to institutionalize stronger risk oversight mechanisms,” Trillium Asset Management said in a letter to fellow Facebook shareholders.

In June 2014, Harvard Law scholar Jonathan Zittrain wrote an essay in the New Republic called, “Facebook Could Decide an Election Without Anyone Ever Finding Out,” in which he called attention to the possibility of Facebook selectively depressing voter turnout. In his recent testimony before Congress Zuckerberg said to Texas Senator Cruz, “Silicon Valley “Extremely Left-Leaning” Place, “I Understand your concern.

I hope that we can drain the swamp and bring back prestige, honesty, and integrity to the FBI and the Justice Department. It is also my hope that boards of directors like those at Facebook will protect the rights of all of their users and never again allow their company use the words, “ Upon investigation, we have determined that you are ineligible to use Facebook. Unfortunately, for safety and security reasons, we cannot provide additional information as to why your account was disabled. This decision is final.”

Former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan: Democrats’ battle against the border wall is driven by identity politics. President Trump declaration of a national emergency to build a border barrier is necessary according to Obama’s Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan.

Per the Daily Caller:

Former President Barack Obama’s Border Patrol chief blamed the disagreement surrounding the border wall on identity politics, during a Friday night interview with Brian Kilmeade on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Mark Morgan was on Carlson’s show to discuss President Donald Trump’s decision to declare a state of emergency in order to reallocate funds toward constructing a wall along the southern border. Trump received $1.375 billion from the bill that he signed, and intends to dedicate an around $6.5 billion more from other agencies.

“Mark Morgan is the former head of the border patrol. And he’s heard the rhetoric, but he knows the reality. Mark, is the president making up an emergency?” Kilmeade asked.

“Absolutely not,” Morgan responded. “Brian, this is part of the frustration for those of us from a law enforcement, border security perspective. How many more statistics do we have to provide? How many more factually based examples do we have to provide? How many more angel families have to stand in front of some of these individuals before they finally say, ‘Yeah, okay, this is real.’ It’s just incredulous.”

In an interview with CNN former border patrol chief Mark Morgan said that President Trump had no choice but to declare a national emergency to get funding for the border wall because “Congress failed.”

The Democrats think they know so much more and are much better informed than those who are actually on the ground every day at the Southern border.

This is not the first time Mark Morgan explained that a border barrier was necessary. In a mid-January interview he stated:

“Before I was the chief of border patrol I was with the FBI,” Morgan explained. “And I actually supervised MS-13 gang force in southern California. We used to catch them on surveillance wires, and they would laugh, MS-13 gang members would laugh [at] how easy it was to go back between Mexico and the U.S. border.”

(…) The other day when they had the national press conference, and they [border patrol agents] got up, and they said the wall works, they’re right,” said Morgan. “And it’s not based on a personal political ideology. That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven.”

This isn’t only about identity politics. It’s also about stupid, stubborn, defiant Democrats who have chosen to disregard their duty to represent the people in favor of petty party politics

MAGA MADNESS: Loony Lib Pulls Gun on Trump Fan Over Hat

I must remind you once again that we are all Americans, regardless of our political affiliation.  It’s time to start acting like it.

MAGA

What started out as a social media joke about the lunacy of the liberal left has now turned into a bonafide phenomenon called Trump Derangement Syndrome, for which we are too intrinsically intwined to have any true perspective as if yet.

Try to remember the shock and horror that you felt when you first saw the bloody, decapitated head of the President at the end of Kathy Griffin’s outstretched arm.  The steely, cold stare that she gave the camera was purely chilling.  Her eyes belied no emotion at the heinous and callous effigy in her hands, that she herself chose to create.  She had the uncaring and unflinching look of a cold-blooded predator.

It was unnerving to witness.  The photo-realistic, bloody head was enough to form a brick somewhere deep in my guts, but seeing Kathy Griffin’s absolute void of emotion struck me in ways that no political imagery had before.

Now, remember that this was all nearly two years ago now.  Today, in 2019, were we to see something like this, it wouldn’t have nearly the effect.  We’d scoff, and scold, but in the end we would chalk it up to “liberals being liberals”.

It is this passage of time, and the erosion of dignity within the democratic party, that has led to madness such as this:

Police in Bowling Green, Kentucky, say James Phillips was arrested after witnesses said he pulled a gun inside a Sam’s Club outlet because the victim was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat.

A police report notes that the suspect admitted to getting upset over the headwear and that he “flipped off” the MAGA hat wearer, according to WBKO-TV 13.

The victim, Terry Pierce, told police he had a right to wear the hat. “I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my president as he has not to,” the Sam’s Club customer said.

Pierce added that Phillips, “Pulled a .40 caliber out and stuck it in my face, backed up and said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.’”

Phillips claimed that he told Pierce to put the gun down so they could settle the argument like men, but Pierce ran out of the store, instead.

I must remind you once again that we are all Americans, regardless of our political affiliation.  It’s time to start acting like it.

Sensibility is the only cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome.
