FBI vindicates all fears

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has vindicated every “conspiracy theory” anyone ever had of its attitude toward the people. Clearly it regards the American people with contempt, the same as various Communist secret police agencies did during the Cold War. (Or the Gestapo did during World War II.) Whether because the original targets of the FBI took over the apparatus and proceeded to use it against their own detractors, or whether the FBI was power-corrupt from the beginning, doesn’t matter anymore. What matters is that it’s past time to dismantle that organization and return its functions to private detective, or militia, agencies.

Latest from the FBI

Recall that Judge Aileen M. Cannon of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, overseeing the “Trump Documents Case,” unsealed the original search warrant. That warrant contained specific instructions to the FBI and its Special Weapons Assault forces (whatever they call themselves):

  1. Bring your big guns,
  2. Be prepared to shoot it out with Trump’s Secret Service detail,
  3. Have trained emergency medical personnel with you (same as armies travel with medics and corpsmen), and
  4. Call such-a-hospital if you have to send anyone to the trauma unit.

The FBI did all these things. But foolish and/or Never-Trump commentators like Erick-Woods Erickson pooh-poohed the warrant, as did Attorney General Merrick Garland. “Standard procedure!” shouted a breathless Garland. “Cut-and-paste boilerplate,” said Erickson – who nonetheless said Garland should lose his job over this, solely by reason of the “bad optics.” Special Counsel Jack Smith did worse: one of his prosecutors demanded a gag order against Trump for even mentioning that law-enforcement elements might have tried deliberately to kill him. (More on that below.)

But yesterday, the FBI avowed that it wasn’t pure boilerplate. They now allege that Trump, or one of his friends, relatives, or associates, might try to:

  1. Stab or slash one or more FBI operatives with meat cleavers, kitchen knives, forks, or other “sharps,” or:
  2. Conk one of them on the head with a dumbbell, bare barbell bar, or similar piece of weaponized gym equipment.

As I warned, the Former Feds who defend the lethal force policy included in the MAL raid plan will be even more discredited when additional details are disclosed.

It appears the FBI lied about why they needed to be armed…a dumbbell and meat cleaver?

Now who are the paranoiacs in this drama?

Even the donors are afraid

In other news, the Democratic Party seem to have “lost Silicon Valley.” Of course, Elon Musk was never going to give money to Democrats. He has been their harshest critics. This could be one reason the bitter WEF/Soros-ite struldbrugs kicked him out of their fellowship two years or so ago. Now we learn that many long-standing Silicon Valley billionaires are prepared to “juice” Trump financially. Which means they’re not getting the government contracts they used to count on getting from Democratic administrations. And it could mean they’d be afraid to touch any such contracts with proverbial ten-foot poles.

This morning, Trump’s Mississippi campaign finance director, former Gov. Phil Bryant (R-Miss.), gave an electrifying reason some are reluctant to give to Trump’s campaign. They expressed fear the FBI would show up at their doors.

And, I tell them, think of what you just said. If you make a legitimate honest campaign contribution to the Republican nominee for president, the FBI will come to your door. And they acknowledge that’s a reality in the United States of America.

Former Gov. Phil Bryant (R-Miss.)

What kind of government do we live under today? Jim Hoft (The Gateway Pundit), reporting on the Mississippi scared-donor story, compared the FBI to the Staatssicherheitsdienst (Stasi) of the Cold War-era Deutsche Demokratische Republik (German Democratic Republica, or “East Germany”). He might have done better to compare to to the Geheime Staatspolizei (Secret State Police), or Gestapo. Or to the Third Chief Directorate of the Komitet Gosudarstvennoye Bezopasnosti (Committee for State Security), or KGB).

Selective application – and denial

Worse even than all the above, is the selective application of the “standard operating procedures” of the FBI. A parallel classified-documents case exists – except that Biden’s case is worse. He was Vice-President, not President, and thus had no authority to have the documents that rested in his garage. Merrick Garland even tried to convince people that the warrant to search for and recover documents from Biden’s home had the same “boilerplate” deadly-force authority.

From the beginning people asked, “Where is the documentation for that?” But when Jack Smith and company filed their motion, they didn’t mention any such detail.

Last Friday, legal correspondent Lisa Rubin suggested Jack Smith was actually trying to change the conditions under which Trump would remain free. Furthermore, he is trying to trigger an automatic appeal in case she denies the motion.

That matters because when Trump was first indicted, his bond — which he signed — made clear that his continued release was conditioned on his compliance with certain terms. 2/— Lisa Rubin (@lawofruby) May 25, 2024

But in asking to modify Trump’s conditions of release to prohibit his making statements that pose a “significant, imminent, and foreseeable danger” to law enforcement involved in the investigation and prosecution of the MAL case, the Special Counsel is upping the ante. 4/— Lisa Rubin (@lawofruby) May 25, 2024

But the FBI might have changed the game, without telling Smith. They expressed fear that Trump or someone else would cleave someone’s skull, or crush it with a dumbbell. But they never said that a week ago, nor did Jack Smith or his team mention it. This latest expression belies their motion, and the Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit could not fail to notice. Or if the Eleventh Circuit tried to ignore it, the United States Supreme Court certainly would not.

Doesn’t the FBI realize this? Or are they now so brazen that they literally don’t care?

Latest: Judge Cannon denies the motion

This morning, according to Christina Laila (TGP), Judge Cannon denied the motion to alter terms of release. She issued a “Paperless Order,” which reads (paragraphing added):

PAPERLESS ORDER denying without prejudice for lack of meaningful conferral 581 the Special Counsel’s motion to Modify Conditions of Release.

Upon review of the Motion 581 [581-1], Defendant Trump’s procedural opposition 583, and the attached email correspondence between counsel [583-1], the Court finds the Special Counsel’s pro forma “conferral” to be wholly lacking in substance and professional courtesy. It should go without saying that meaningful conferral is not a perfunctory exercise. Sufficient time needs to be afforded to permit reasonable evaluation of the requested relief by opposing counsel and to allow for adequate follow-up discussion as necessary about the specific factual and legal basis underlying the motion. This is so even when a party “assume[s]” the opposing party will oppose the proposed motion [583-1], and it applies with additional force when the relief sought – at issue for the first time in this proceeding and raised in a procedurally distinct manner than in cited cases – implicates substantive and/or Constitutional questions. Because the filing of the Special Counsel’s Motion did not adhere to these basic requirements, it is due to be denied without prejudice.

Any future, non-emergency motion brought in this case – whether on the topic of release conditions or anything else – shall not be filed absent meaningful, timely, and professional conferral. S.D. Fla. L.R. 88.9, 71(a)(3); see ECF No. 28 p. 2; ECF No. 82. Moreover, all certificates of conference going forward shall:

(1) appear in a separate section at the end of the motion, not embedded in editorialized footnotes,

(2) specify, in objective terms, the exact timing, method, and substance of the conferral conducted; and

(3) include, if requested by opposing counsel, no more than 200 words verbatim from the opposing side on the subject of conferral, again in objective terms.

Failure to comply with these requirements may result in sanctions.

In light of this Order, the Court determines to deny without prejudice Defendant Trump’s Motion to Strike and for Sanctions 583.

Signed by Judge Aileen M. Cannon on 5/28/2024 (jf01) (Entered: 05/28/2024)

It would be hard to count the number of times in Judge Cannon has admonished special counsel for breaking the rules, citing vague claims of “threats” and “harassment,” and just bad behavior in general.

She told one prosecutor last week to “calm down.”https://t.co/m7oxCDKizd— Julie Kelly 🇺🇸 (@julie_kelly2) May 28, 2024

Judge Cannon basically gave the Special Counsel what would have been an unprintable and unrepeatable anatomical suggestion. She also appears to have dared Special Counsel to appeal her order, if he really has such reserves of bilious, gonadal, or similar anatomical fortitude. This is worse than her sternly warning a member of Smith’s team to “calm down” after he pounded the podium.

Judge: Are you trying to show contempt for this court?

Flower Belle: No, your honor, I’m doin’ my best to hide it!

Except that Jack Smith and his team would appear not even to be trying. Nevertheless, CNAV hopes she will have the foresight to see to her own security, after thus throwing down the gauntlet.

The FBI has outlived its usefulness

As CNAV has said before, the FBI does have a cadre of agents who joined because they believed in the ostensible mission “to protect the innocent.” That’s why most people (especially boys) decide they want to be law-enforcement officers at any level. But the FBI has always extended itself to extra-constitutional missions. As we asked nearly two years ago: Where does the Constitution grant jurisdiction over bank robbery? Or kidnapping, or even interstate transportation of stolen motor vehicles or other property? The often lurid tales that Quinn Martin’s staff often depicted on their long-running show did not limit themselves to “crime on a government reservation,” “crime on the high seas,” or “crime aboard aircraft.” J. Edgar Hoover made kidnapping, bank robbery, and interstate crimes, federal offenses. Pinkerton’s Detective Agency is perfectly capable of handling that sort of affair.

Would J. Edgar Hoover run an operation like what we are now seeing? By all accounts, he was an equal-opportunity, against-both-sides menace. “I have dirt on all of you, so leave me alone or I’ll burn this city to the ground.” Or words to the same or similar effect. The exceptions were:

  • Anything that aided or comforted those he perceived to be enemies of the United States,
  • Threats to those who, in his view, ran the economy and deserved protection – i.e., the rich, whom he regarded as modern aristocrats, and
  • Threats to the banking system.

Today the FBI stands against those it once most assiduously protected, except the banks.

A threat to freedom

George Washington once called government “a dangerous servant and a fearsome master.” The modern FBI has proved the danger it has always posed as a servant. Today it is a servant, not of the people, but of the particular faction now in power. In fact it demonstrated its “mastery” of the people at Ruby Ridge, Idaho. Another “three-letter agency” (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, abbreviated “ATF”) would showcase the “servant danger” in Waco, Texas a year later.

Those two incidents happened under two different administrations – Bush Senior and Clinton. The Party differences are of no moment today; we now know that Republicans were “Democrat Lite” then. Our country didn’t get back a real two-party system until Donald Trump became President. And in his administration, the FBI, and indeed the entire Intelligence Community, mutinied against him. That mutiny continues today, with actions against a former President. Their attempt to excuse their deadly-force instructions by citing kitchenware and gymnastic equipment would be funny were the stakes not so high. (And actually this goes to whether the government wants any household to have its own kitchen, much less a gymnasium.)

Abolition of the FBI should become an election campaign issue, as it was at Midterms 2022. At least when Pinkerton’s investigated thefts from railroad shipments, they never tried to assassinate a President, sitting or former. (In fact they claim credit for keeping Abraham Lincoln alive as civil war broke out.) Today CNAV will take Pinkerton’s over the FBI any day.
