    Time for action….

    Waiting for the FBI to “can’t find” evidence against a typical citizen up on a federal rap. Suspect I’ll be waiting a long time.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Freudian slip…….oh, wait, that’s what Grahamnesty wears.

  • WayneM

    Imagine the chain of coincidences required to have so many key pieces of electronic evidence lost by accident… Kind of boggles the mind, doesn’t it?

    These are the folks we are supposed to believe when they tell us they need just a little more power, but don’t worry it’s just to make us safer.

      “The [Communist] Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others… We are different from all the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we’re doing… Power is not a means, it is an end… The object of power is power… Always there will be the intoxication of power… We are the priests of power… Power is power over human beings, over the body; but above all over the mind… The real power; the power we have to fight for night and day is not power over things but over men. How does one man assert his power over another… by making him suffer… Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation.” George Orwell- 1984

      To the Dems it’s not a warning, it’s a BLUEPRINT!

    You know, I never gave it a second thought when people called agents “fibbies.” Dumb and blind, that’s me. Thanks Chris!

    Too bad they didn’t have Hillary’s washcloth or hammer.

    The problem with having what began as a political “police force” (under Woodrow Wilson) is that even if sort of reformed as it was under FDR and later Presidents, sooner or later some Chief Executive will decide that he needs a political police force again, and hey, here’s one all set up and ready to go. Just put “the right people” in charge and give them their marching orders.

    Although I would have considered the comparison odious just a decade ago, I would point out that the Gestapo in Germany actually predated the Nazi regime’. “Gestapo” is actually a contraction of “Geheime Staatspolizei” (“Secret State police”), and originally began in Bavaria before the various German states combined and became the Deutsches reich in 1871. By the 1920s every German “state” had their own local one patterned on Bavaria’s. The Nazis simply took the various “state” secret police organizations and combined them into a national one in 1934. And yes, they were looking at FDR and Jed Hoover’s “new” FBI when they did it.

    Any such organization can be misused or abused. It just depends on who’s running them, and what their goals are.

    And of course, how obedient- and venal- their subordinates are willing to be.

    Extrapolate a corrupted, weaponized “progressive” FBI/CIA just a bit – and what that implies about what PDT has been up against just in terms of his and his family’s personal safety and security…. I doubt what we know so far is anywhere near the real scary stuff going on “under the vault”…

  • Unca Walt

    Today’s headline in the Palm Beach Post — in the “FROM THE RIGHT” (balancing (hah!) the “FROM THE LEFT” diatribe:

    TRUMP’S CONSPIRACY THEORIES ENDANGER AMERICAN DEMOCRACY

    TINS, Pilgrims. This is AFTER the SOTU.

    I am not sanguine about our country being saved.

    • JTC

      Ah the PB Post, my old enemy from the late 70’s/early 80’s…

      Then as now, their leftist drivvle and reportage is published AFTER the fact, but written well BEFORE it. They’ve got the ones for the FIB’er scandal, the Russia “probe”, and the immigration deal all prepared too. They “know” what the facts are and will be in their mind.

    Make some more popcorn folks…the FBI shit-show is about to get more interesting:

    https://pjmedia.com/trending/report-mccabe-may-asked-fbi-agents-change-302-forms/

    “Investigative journalist Sara Carter reported on Fox News last night that outgoing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe may be in serious trouble if the information she had received from FBI sources proves to be true.

    “I have been told tonight by a number of sources … that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302s,” Carter told host Sean Hannity.

    The 302 form contains information from the notes an FBI agent takes during an interview of a subject. It is used by FBI agents to “report or summarize the interviews that they conduct.”

    Yep, there should be a lot of perp walking of these bastards out of FBI HQ to the Federal Courthouse.

    • John

      IIRC if McCabe is fired his pension goes down the tubes.
      A fitting end to a corrupt LEO.

      • Interventor

        Sorry, no. It might be delayed until he’s older.

  • DMW-

    BRIILIANT! Absolutely brilliant! This commentary is the best way to start my mornings.
    The sh** is about to hit the fan.

  • bill

    Can we just rename it POS and leave no doubt?

  • Erik

    Soviet Union has KGB (Committee for State Security)
    United States has DHS (Department for Homeland Security)

    It’s not like they even try to hide it. FBI has been a bunch of political hitmen from day one. Main advantage is they have great PR from Hollywood.

  • GruntGI

    So the thing is, the FBI has a history of politically charged investigations..back in the ’60s the hippies and lefties hated them cuz they went after the anti-war commies, the Weather Underground and MLK…Now that they are all in the back pocket of Obama and Hillary, suddenly the FBI is above reproach?

    REALLLY? When the fuck did the left ever care about law enforcement?

    I have three simple letters for you… B…L…M….yup, BLM and all their bullshit just proves liberals don’t give a damn about cops or law enforcement unless it advances their political agenda.

    DAMN, all this sanctimonious “law and order” BS from the left really pisses me off…

    CAN we get Sam and Zed back in the barn
