Default Weaponized DOJ

This is exactly what the Nazis did when they created the SS.

Quote:
[Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)] told Fox News's Sean Hannity on Thursday that 14 FBI agents have come to his office with complaints.

"We also know that some of those whistle-blowers have had their security clearance revoked, which is always the first step in terminating someone at the FBI. And now we think there's been specific retaliation against a whistle-blower who has been suspended, and this is one of the very first whistle-blowers we have who's been suspended.

"He came to us back last fall with the school boards issue when we learned that memo randomly came from Attorney General Garland designed to say we're going to use the counter-terrorism measure against moms and dads, and 20 some parents were investigated by the FBI for simply showing up at a school board meeting.

"So it continues to escalate, and then when you view it in context of everything we're doing, this is frightening stuff."

Hannity asked Jordan, "What is going on with our Department of Justice?"

"I think the plan is all designed to fit this narrative that Joe Biden's laid out there, that half the country are fascist and extremist, this crazy claim that he's made.

“And now they have to, as I've said, juice the numbers -- we've had some whistle-blowers talk about that, how they're getting pressure to label all cases as domestic violent extremism cases to juice the numbers and to cook the books because of the way they're cataloguing these cases to make it appear that there are domestic violence extremists all over the country.

“All to fit this narrative and you now see it manifest in what happened just a week ago outside of Philadelphia with this pastor and his family.

"That seems to be what they are up to, and of course if you have conservative, if you have FBI agents who are following the law and doing things the way they're supposed to, they're not going to go along with that, that's why they're coming to us and they are trying to stop them to come forward to give us the truth.”

I agree. I saw a Tee shirt that said "Make 1884 FICTION again!"

1984 started around 2017 with full force out in CA. Of course it started way before that, but it was clearly evident everywhere about 5 years ago.

I just took a CA survey in exchange for a Target gift card (Have been there 4 times in 30 years). It was 5 questions---what was your sex at birth, what sex do you identify as, what is your sexual orientation, and what is your race. I checked the 'prefer not to answer' box on each question and got my card. Meanwhile, our country tanks. Crazy.

Nothing new. Mexican criminals are labeled as Caucasian in their crime statistics. You can easily see this on the 10 most wanted list. It's been happening for decades.

In 1964 my Father got a letter from LBJ asking him to rejoin the Marines and go to Vietnam. It was a VERY good deal they wanted to make with him and a few others. After doing some investigation he found out just how bad the war was being managed from Washington so he replied

" Dear Mr President,

Go **** yourself.

Sincerely JJH"

He found out in 1967 he had been placed on the FBI watch list.

The FBI has been used by the federal government to go after people who disagree with them since , at least, the late 1940's.

No surprise here, WAY back when I was early in my Fed career there were two IRS "whistleblowers".....their names and actions were widely known, both were GS-14s and they were ostracized and treated like paraihas... Their careers were over all while the gov't touted "whistleblower protection" and the like. There are two types of "whistleblowers" anonymous and named. Anonymous complainst are given little credence. Named submissions are scrutinized carefully but the "names" often become the stuff of office water cooler conversations. The smarter folks don't try it unless they have other career options.

As to suspended clearance, once that happens you really have no function as far as your "core" duties are concerned in a law enforcement agency and you are either on your way out or given menial and humiliating work.

Sort of makes me glad that I won’t be around much longer. Or at least have nothing to lose when the SHTF.

During Trumps time in office, it would not surprise me one bit if a fair number of those on the other site to include some mods and site as a whole are on a watch list.

Constant threats of violence made daily, whacked out conspiracy that comes straight from their asses. Funny thing is the Mods choose to enforce double standards.

It's one thing to voice an opinion you believe in, another to turn basic politics into right wing extremism.

Are you ****ing kidding me? Right wing extremism? The mods over there are so woke they don't realize how stupid they are. The only thing you got right in your post was the part about double standards.

Rex Stout wrote a book based upon that premise back in 1965. Called "The Doorbell Rang". Good book.

You know what strikes me as funny?


Sixty years ago, the quickest way onto the FBI's watch list was to make them think you were a communist. These days, the quickest way onto their watch list is to not be one. Rather funny, that.
