From Turning Point USA:

In this exclusive interview, Turning Point USA sits down with former FBI Special Agent, John Guandolo. This crucial conversation sheds light on the undiscussed network of jihadists and communists that have worked together to undermine America at its root for decades. From 9/11, to the Las Vegas shooting, to January 6, the Mar-a-Lago raid, Ray Epps, and the NSA – John tells truths that American intelligence agencies have long sought to deprive every American citizen of.

For years, Americans have failed to realize that our greatest enemy has not been an ocean away. Our adversaries are HERE on American soil – present within our institutions – and advising those who are sworn to represent us throughout the highest levels of our federal government. The most important battle being waged today is taking place WITHIN our intelligence agencies. The tyranny running rampant throughout the federal government cannot persist against the truth, which makes this a message they DON’T want you to hear.

What is going on in America? Every day it seems another story surfaces about an FBI raid on another conservative. This time, it was a Catholic pro-life activist in Pennsylvania. LifeSite News reports:

A well-known pro-life author, sidewalk counselor, and father of seven was the latest victim of a U.S. Department of Justice-sponsored SWAT raid and arrest — for supposed “FACE Act” violations — at his rural home as his children looked on “screaming.”

Mark Houck is the founder and president of The King’s Men, which promotes healing for victims of pornography addiction and promotes Christian virtues among men in the United States and Europe.

According to his wife Ryan-Marie, who spoke with LifeSiteNews, he also drives two hours south to Philadelphia every Wednesday to sidewalk council for six to eight hours at two different abortion centers.

Ryan-Marie, who is a homeschool mother, explained the SWAT team of 25 to 30 FBI agents swarmed their property with around 15 vehicles at 7:05 a.m. this morning. Having quickly surrounded the house with rifles in firing position, “they started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it.”

The raid apparently stems from events in October 2021 at an abortion clinic. According to Ryan-Marie, on several occasions last year, Mark, 48, took the eldest of his seven children, then age 12, to an abortion clinic where he went to counsel mothers planning to abort their children. For “weeks and weeks,” a pro-abortion protester got in her son’s face, screaming “crude… inappropriate and disgusting things… such as, ‘Your dad’s a fag'” and other statements too vile for the Catholic mom to repeat.

She said that Mark repeatedly told the man that he didn’t have permission to speak to his son and asked him to stop. “He kept doing it and kind of came into [his son’s] personal space” as he continued to shout obscenities. “Mark shoved him away from his child, and the guy fell back. He didn’t have any injuries or anything, but he tried to sue Mark,” Ryan-Marie added, noting that the case was thrown out of court earlier this summer.

Merick Garland’s weaponized DOJ put a different spin on the incidents:

The charges stem from two separate incidents both on October 13, 2021, which occurred at the Planned Parenthood Elizabeth Blackwell Health Center on Locust Street in Philadelphia, where Houck allegedly assaulted the victim, a 72-year-old man, identified in the Indictment as “B.L.,” because B.L. was a volunteer escort at the reproductive health care clinic. In the first incident, B.L. was attempting to escort two patients exiting the clinic, when the defendant forcefully shoved B.L. to the ground. In the second incident, the defendant verbally confronted B.L. and forcefully shoved B.L. to the ground in front of the Planned Parenthood center, causing injuries to B.L. that required medical attention.

Biden-appointed U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Jacqueline C. Romero, apparently signed off on the raid on Houck’s home.

Mark was arrested and appeared in federal court, charged with violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, “which makes it a federal crime to use force with the intent to injure, intimidate, and interfere with anyone because that person is a provider of reproductive health care.”

RelatedDebunking the Lies the Pro-Choice Movement Tells

Once again, we see Joe Biden’s two-tiered justice system at work. Remember when news dropped that the Supreme Court was set to overturn Roe v. Wade and the violent left attacked more than 50 pro-life centers? Guess how many people have been arrested in connection with those attacks? Not a single one. PJ Media’s Robert Spencer reported:

Nonetheless, it’s clear that Biden’s Justice Department, which took the highly unusual step of openly dissenting from the decision overturning Roe and has been decidedly reluctant to protect conservative Supreme Court Justices from illegal protests at their homes, is hardly making the protection of pro-life centers a high priority. No one has been arrested from the pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge, despite its open threats to pro-lifers. “We will hunt you down and make your lives a living hell,” the group has said. This is, it says, a “war” against pro-lifers.

And a Catholic dad with seven children warranted the full wrath of Joe Biden’s DOJ, with a SWAT raid on the family home at 7:05 a.m. According to Ryan-Marie’s account, there were 25-30 agents in 15 cars. They surrounded the house with rifles in firing position, and “started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it.”

Mark replied, “Please, I’m going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house.”

“But they just kept pounding and screaming,” the mother said. “They had big, huge rifles pointed at Mark and pointed at me and kind of pointed throughout the house,” and ordered the children upstairs. “The kids were all just screaming. It was all just very scary and traumatic.”

This should terrify every American. Mark Houck isn’t a drug lord or a mass murderer. He was involved in a minor scuffle at an abortion clinic, and now he’s facing a possible sentence of 11 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and fines of up to $350,000 if convicted.

In his dark speech at Independence Hall, Joe Biden declared war on Americans who oppose his party’s radical left-wing agenda. LifeSiteNews noted:

Since the Biden administration has taken power in January 2021, Garland’s Department of Justice and the FBI have committed dozens of SWAT team raids that have been characterized as a political “weaponization” of the federal agencies against pro-lifers, Trump supporters, conservative Christians, and medical freedom advocates.

[…]

In March, the FBI rounded up 10 pro-life activists, including Joan Andrews Bell, with SWAT team raids that serve to intimidate and humiliate the accused through an exercise of excessive force.

A surfaced video of one of these raids shows armed agents holding pro-lifers at gunpoint and ordering them to put their hands up, drop to their knees and scoot backward out their front door in the middle of the night. The pro-lifers are respectful and compliant throughout.

In other words, the raid on Mark Houck was not a one-off. Joe Biden’s weaponized DOJ could be coming for any one of us. If you are a conservative and express your views by protesting in any way, you need to have a talk with your family—today—about what to do in the event of an FBI raid and what your contingency plans are in the event you’re arrested. Biden has made it clear that dissent won’t be tolerated, and they’re rounding up people like Mark Houck to send a message: comply or you’ll pay. These are very scary times.

 

46 Somalis Charged in $250 Million COVID Fraud

There are some frauds so massively insane that Americans won’t do them. Someone has to.

covered this story back in the winter, relying on the important work of local reporters like Bill Glahn at the American Experiment. The story is mind-blowing for the sheer scale of the fraud.

In 2019, Feeding Our Future distributed $3.4 million in taxpayer food aid funds to the non-profits it was sponsoring, In 2020, that shot up to $42 million and then up to $197 million in 2021.

These were impressive numbers for a charity that seemed to focus on Somalis in Minnesota.

Glahn in American Experiment found that, “Feeding Our Future had 312 authorized sites for the program, approved for a maximum of 126,000 children.” That’s a lot of hungry Somali kids.

And I really mean impressive.

Safari Restaurant, which boasts “traditional Somali cuisine” like french fries and safari chicken quesadilla, where Rep. Ilhan Omar had celebrated her victory party, applied to participate in the Federal Child Nutrition program.

When the money was denied, Feeding Our Future complained that “minority-owned businesses serving almost exclusively economically disadvantaged children of color” were being denied the right to serve “culturally relevant foods” to “youth” during a “national emergency”.

Crying racism worked and at its peak, Safari claimed to be feeding 6,000 children a day. That’s a lot of children. Documents note that the Somali eatery claimed to be serving a comparable number of meals to “the entire St. Paul public school district.”

Safari was just one of the many providers who claimed to be feeding thousands of children.

There’s an Ilhan Omar angle and a Mecca angle.

The Feds staked out various Feeding Our Future meal sites and found no one at the places that were supposed to be feeding 50,000 children. According to the FBI, the money being stolen wasn’t used to feed children, it went into various shell companies and fronts operated by Somalis and was used to buy everything from a Porsche to African properties.

According to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, S&S Catering led by Qamar Ahmed Hassan received $13.8 million in federal funds. The FBI warrants note that, “Qamar Ahmed Hassan wrote approximately $27,000 in checks from S&S Catering bank accounts… to Amax Travel, a travel agency that specializes in Haji travel packages.”

Now the official federal indictments of 47 people are in: 46 of them Somalis.

The Department of Justice announced today federal criminal charges against 47 defendants for their alleged roles in a $250 million fraud scheme that exploited a federally-funded child nutrition program during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A key element in the fraud was crying racism. Some politicians came forward to back them up. And there are questions as to what extent politicians, especially those catering to Somalis, helped enable it.

The accused Somalis donated to a variety of politicians, including Rep. Ilhan Omar, State Senator Omar Fateh, Shukri Olow, running for state representative, State Rep. Hodan Hassan, a Keith Ellison crony, and others.

Rep. Ilhan Omar has made government meals for children one of her signature issues.

This Should Terrify Every American: DOJ Harasses Citizens for Exercising Their First Amendment Rights

BY HANS A. VON SPAKOVSKY

The Justice Department has hit the Eagle Forum of Alabama with a voluminous subpoena that violates the organization’s First Amendment rights to speak freely, engage in the political process, and talk to their elected representatives. It’s an intimidation tactic, pure and simple, and shows just how partisan the department has become. This out-of-control behavior should scare every citizen and volunteer organization, no matter where they stand on the political or social spectrum.

Eagle Forum is a very small non-profit in Alabama. It only has one full-time employee and a second, part-time employee. Virtually all of its work on issues of interest to its members is done by volunteers.  It is the quintessential, uniquely American grassroots membership organization that French historian Alexis de Tocqueville lauded in Democracy in America.

As the Eagle Forum’s motion to quash the government subpoena says, one of the issues its members have been concerned over is “gender-altering medical treatment to minors” and the “permanent and adverse effects of such medical procedures on those minors.” Those serious, lifelong effects deeply concern many physicians and parents.

Members of the Eagle Forum made their worries known by doing things every American has an absolute right to do: they spoke out, made speeches, organized meetings, talked to other residents and organizations in the state, and contacted their elected state representatives. In other words, they exercised their constitutional rights to engage in “freedom of speech,” to “peaceably assemble,” and “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” They also exercised their right to associate, recognized by the Supreme Court as implicit under the Fourteenth Amendment.

None of these activities should trigger stalking by Justice Department lawyers. So how has this come about?

Earlier this year, the Alabama legislature passed the Alabama Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act, which became effective on May 8. It bans puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgery to alter the biological sex of a minor. A huge number of left-wing advocacy organizations immediately sued the state, and the U.S. Justice Department intervened in the lawsuit, echoing their claims that the new Alabama law violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

RelatedLiberal Intolerance of First Amendment Freedoms on Full Display in Biden’s ‘Pride’ Month

The Eagle Forum is not a party to the lawsuit. Yet the Justice Department has served what is referred to as a third-party subpoena on the Eagle Forum. This subpoena outrageously demands that the Eagle Forum and its members turn over all:

  • information and communications it has or engaged in over the law and any predecessor bills;
  • materials that were considered by the Forum connected to the legislation or any draft or model bills;
  • documents concerning the Forum’s “legislative or policy goals, initiatives, and/or strategies relating to medical care or treatment of transgender minors, or minors with gender dysphoria”;
  • communications with—and testimony, letters, reports, etc., sent to—state legislators or their staff; and any other government agencies and officials in Alabama over the legislation;
  • communications with any other nongovernmental organizations over the legislation;
  • internal minutes and records of meetings, polling, and public opinion data, video presentations and speeches, newsletters and emails, and social media postings related to the legislation.

In other words, the Justice Department wants to turn the Eagle Forum inside out, forcing it to turn over its records on everything it does. This would let government lawyers paw through and scrutinize everything, including privileged communications and even personal discussions and communications with other private citizens and nonprofit organizations.

And there isn’t a single, justifiable reason for the department to do this. The Eagle Forum is not a party in the lawsuit. It is not a government agency. It is not the legislature. It has no power to vote to enact this (or any) legislation or sign it into law.

Keep in mind that the lawsuit is making a constitutional claim. The plaintiffs, including the Justice Department, are arguing that the statute as written violates the U.S. Constitution. So, what do the Eagle Forum’s polling data or social media posts have to do with that constitutional question? What do its internal records, its “policy goals, initiatives, and/or strategies,” or the communications of its members with state legislators have to do with that issue?

The answer is absolutely nothing. None of the documents or information sought by the Justice Department has any relevance to whether the text of a state law violates the Fourteenth Amendment.

This subpoena, issued by Jason R. Cheeks, an attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Northern District of Alabama, has but one intent: to harass and intimidate a conservative organization for daring to engage in the democratic process by working on an issue that inflames the Left.

The right to associate freely with other citizens who share your interests was recognized by the Supreme Court in 1959 in NAACP v. AlabamaIronically enough, in that case, the Alabama state government was harassing the NAACP with similar demands for information due to its work on civil rights issues and legislation.

In an affidavit filed with the court in the current case, Rebecca Gerritson, the executive director of the Eagle Forum of Alabama, correctly warns:

If this subpoena is enforced, legitimate, law-abiding organizations like ours will be subject to scrutiny for engaging in constitutionally protected activities.  Further correspondence by EFA, including emails, notes, presentations, speeches, interviews, etc. could be weaponized by government officials who hold (or are being required to assert) opposite political views.  In addition, enforcement of the federal government’s subpoena would set a precedent that would stifle other citizens who want to exercise their constitutional right to make their views known to their elected officials on public policy matters.

This is a dangerous action by the Justice Department. It’s something that all Americans who value their constitutional rights should oppose.

UPDATE: The Justice Department has issued a press release announcing that Jason R. Cheek, the department lawyer who served this harassing subpoena on the Eagle Forum of Alabama, has been appointed by Jay E. Town, the U.S. Attorney for the northern part of the state, to “serve as the district election officer for the Northern District of Alabama” in the upcoming November election. So Cheek, the lawyer who is trying to intimidate state residents who are members of the Eagle Forum for speaking out and engaging in the democratic process, is the “district election officer” who will be responsible for “handling any complaints of election fraud or voting rights abuses.” Given Cheek’s reprehensible conduct in this case, this is not an appointment likely to generate confidence in the electorate of Alabama that the Justice Department will handle such complaints in a non-partisan, unbiased, and fair manner.

FBI Agents Accuse Biden of Pressuring FBI to Fabricate ‘Extremist’ and ‘White Supremacist’ Cases

Current and former FBI agents have come forward saying the Biden administration is deliberately exaggerating the danger posed by white supremacists. They claimed that high-ranking FBI officials were pressuring field agents to fabricate domestic terrorism cases and label people as white supremacists in order to “meet internal metrics.”

“The demand for white supremacy” coming from FBI brass “vastly outstrips the supply of white supremacy,” one agent told the Washington Times. “We have more people assigned to investigate white supremacists than we can actually find.”

The FBI agent, who requested anonymity in order to discuss internal bureau politics, said that top officials in the FBI “have already determined that white supremacy is a problem” and established a policy to prioritize investigations into racially-motivated domestic extremism.

“We are sort of the lapdogs as the actual agents doing these sorts of investigations, trying to find a crime to fit otherwise First Amendment-protected activities,” he said. “If they have a Gadsden flag and they own guns and they are mean at school board meetings, that’s probably a domestic terrorist.”

The FBI denies that they are targeting people based on politics, but sadly, these revelations are the latest in a longstanding pattern of the politicization and weaponization of the Justice Department under Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Last year, the administration previously came under fire for using the resources of the Department of Justice to target angry parents at school board meetings and treat them like domestic terrorists. Merrick Garland authorized the FBI to investigate parents who protested school board meetings alleging a “disturbing trend” of teachers being threatened or harassed. However, PJ Media’s Megan Fox looked into those allegations and concluded that they’re mostly bunk.

In addition, the National School Boards Association (NSBA), which had prompted Garland to write the memo with a letter likening parents to domestic terrorists, eventually apologized for doing so. Despite this, Garland has not rescinded the memo. Late last year, a whistleblower revealed an internal email showing that the FBI was using counterterrorism tools to monitor parents despite Garland denying before Congress that the FBI was doing so. This summer, whistleblowers revealed that the FBI “pressured and incentivized” agents to classify cases as domestic violent extremism.

Mike Lindell Suing FBI, Government for Violating His Rights

Mike Lindell wants more than just his phone back. Following the incident in Minnesota during which agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation blocked his vehicle at a Hardee’s drive-through and seized his phone, Lindell made an appearance on Steve Bannon’s War Room. He announced that he was filing a lawsuit against the FBI and the government. You can watch Lindell’s conversation with Bannon posted by The Post Millennial below.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell to Steve Bannon: "We are suing the United States government and the FBI"

Lindell makes the point that his phone is what he uses to run his company and that it even controls his hearing aids. As someone who wears hearing aids, I had the option of connecting mine to my phone and even activating the Bluetooth feature. But while I don’t need to pair my ears with my phone, Lindell chose to do so. And for better or worse (probably worse), our lives are now almost inextricably linked to our phones. While that says more about the continuing decline of Western Civilization than anything else, let’s face it: we’d all be lost without our phones, no matter how erudite we think we may be.

Lindell noted that he had already turned over his phone records during the Dominion lawsuit. And to be honest, the FBI could have easily accessed all of his phone and internet records, particularly under Merrick Garland.

I’ve never watched Lindell.TV, and I’ve never been a huge Lindell fan, although we did buy a pair of My Pillows. They’re okay. A little too fluffy for me. We bought one of his dog beds, and the dog chewed it up. But that’s beside the point. Lindell, even if leftists and a few people on the right disparage him, makes a valid observation about the infringement of his rights. This was more than gathering evidence under a warrant. This was meant to intimidate him. And by extension, everyone else. Including you and including me.

Pay attention when people Democrats like Tim Ryan say it is time to “kill and confront” the MAGA movement. I’m not even a MAGA person, and that made me raise my eyebrows. Pay attention when Joe Biden tees off on MAGA Republicans. Pay attention to stories like those of Lisa Gallagher, a New Jersey wife, mother, and Trump supporter who had FBI agents knocking at her door because of an anonymous and false tip that she had been involved in the January 6 incident. Pay attention when Senator Mazie Hirono says, “That is how more and more women and those who support our right to make decisions about our own bodies, that is how we see it. And why? Because that’s what’s happening. Madam President, I yield the floor. But clearly, this is a — literally, call to arms in our country. I yield the floor.”

Does she know what the word “literally” means? If it is literally a call to arms, that means picking up weapons. Had she meant otherwise, she would have said “figurative.”  Someone may argue that Ryan and Hirono were just being passionate. But people in moments of passion, as well as when they are in their cups, often betray their real thoughts.

Pay attention.

Trump Blasts “Weaponized Police State” as FBI Seizes MyPillow’s Mike Lindell’s Phone

Trump Blasts “Weaponized Police State” as FBI Seizes MyPillow’s Mike Lindell’s Phone

BY JAMES MURPHY

On Tuesday night, MyPillow CEO and prominent supporter of former President Donald Trump Mike Lindell revealed that he was the victim of a surprise subpoena served by the FBI while he was at a Hardee’s restaurant in Mankato, Minnesota. Lindell says he was “cornered” by FBI agents who demanded his phone.

According to Lindell, the FBI was specifically concerned with any contact he has had with county clerk Tina Peters from Mesa County, Colorado.

“They want to know about Dominion and Mesa County in Colorado,” said Lindell, who described the event on his Frank Speech channel.

On his social media platform Truth Social, Trump, whose own home was the subject of an unprecedented FBI search in August, came out strongly in support of Lindell and against what he referred to as the “weaponized police state.”

“Breaking News: Mike Lindell, ‘THE Pillow Guy,’ was just raided by the FBI. We are now officially living in a Weaponized Police State, Rigged Elections, and all. Our Country is a laughing stock all over the World. The majesty of the United States is gone. Can’t let this happen. TAKE BACK AMERICA!” Trump wrote.

The FBI has not commented specifically on the seizure of Lindell’s phone. The Denver FBI field office spokesman could only say, “Without commenting on this specific matter, I can confirm that the FBI was at that location executing a search warrant authorized by a federal judge.”

According to Lindell, the agents who seized his phone were courteous.

Lindell strenuously objected to the seizure of his phone, since he conducts the vast majority of his business with the device.

“I go: ‘No. My whole company — I run five companies off that. I don’t have a computer,'” Lindell said. “My hearing aids run off this! Everything runs off my phone!”

Nevertheless, the FBI took the phone, citing a search warrant seeking records pertaining to any “authorization or lack of authorization to damage or modify any Dominion computerized voting system.”

Apparently, the FBI is investigating “any attempted misappropriation, theft, conversion, transfer, or exfiltration of any proprietary hardware, software or other data” that may be related to Dominion voting machines.

Lindell has been a leader in calling out possibly fraudulent practices surrounding the 2020 general election in which Joe Biden allegedly received more than 81 million votes. At his recent Moment of Truth Summit, Lindell claimed that he had key whistleblower information showing that the federal government was actively surveilling up to 20 million Americans. Lindell apparently now owns a large piece of the software used in that surveillance.

And suddenly the FBI shows up.

But Lindell wasn’t intimidated. He thought that, possibly, he was about to be served with a subpoena to appear before the circus known as the January 6th Committee.

“I said, ‘Come on, bring me to January 6. I want to be part of that show,'” Lindell told CNN. “They thought they were there to intimidate me. They won’t intimidate me.”

It is not known if the FBI harassment of Lindell is connected to the approximately 40 subpoenas related to former president Trump in the last ten days.

Among those subpoenaed was former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, whose phone was seized.

Kerik’s attorney, Timothy Parlatore, called it “the widest and most obtuse subpoena I have seen in my years practicing criminal law.”

The FBI documentation asked Lindell to remain quiet about receiving the subpoena — a request the MyPillow CEO obviously didn’t comply with.

“An official criminal investigation of a suspected felony is being conducted by an agency of the United States and a federal grand jury in the District of Colorado. As a subpoena recipient, you are not under an obligation of secrecy,” the document stated. “However, we request that you do not disclose the existence of this subpoena for an indefinite period of time.”

“In other words,” Lindell pointed out, “they don’t want me to tell anybody about the subpoena or what just happened today.”

One has to wonder at the endgame here. Much like the raid at Mar-a-Lago, the seizure of Lindell’s phone and the dozens of subpoenas handed out in the past ten days scream “fishing expedition” by a Justice Department apparently desperate to gain criminal information against Trump. It seems as if the department (acting on whose authority no one knows or will admit) is looking for something — anything — that can possibly be construed as a crime against Trump, whether it’s true or not.

And perhaps that is exactly what they’re doing — searching for some evidence of a crime that they believe will disqualify Trump from a run for president in the future. The image of Trump being perp-walked (whether he’s guilty of anything or not) would be a powerful Democratic campaign commercial going forward.


'My Pillow' Guy Mike Lindell Says He Was Swarmed by FBI in Hardee's Drive-Thru

Trump crony and pillow-meister Mike Lindell announced on his TV show, “The Lindell Report,” that the FBI pinned him into a Hardee’s drive-thru and took his phone.

Lindell and a friend were returning from a fishing trip in Iowa and decided to stop at a Hardee’s fast-food restaurant in Mankato, Minnesota.

Lindell claims he ordered his food and moved forward when a car pulled in front of him. Lindell told his fishing buddy, “It’s either a bad guy or the FBI.” Another car pulled up on his right, and a third car pulled in behind him.

The affable Lindell claims he got out of his car and asked, “Who are you?”

An agent identified himself as being from the FBI. Lindell asked for the FBI’s badges. He then asked if they were going to arrest him. They said no, they just wanted to talk. Lindell seemed almost disappointed that they weren’t going to take him in.

Related: FBI Shows up on Trump Supporter’s Doorstep, and She Wasn’t Even at the Capitol on Jan. 6

The FBI then allegedly asked Lindell questions about people in Colorado and Dominion voting machines. After a 10-15 minute talk, Lindell claims an FBI agent said, “I have bad news, we’re taking your cellphone,” and produced a warrant.

FACT-O-RAMA! Mike Lindell has been very vocal about his belief that the 2020 election was stolen. He has produced two documentaries about it, “Absolute Proof” and a sequel, “Absolute Interference.” Most big chain stores have since stopped selling his wildly popular “My Pillow” products.

Lindell supposedly told the agents that he uses his phone to run five companies as well as his hearing aid and can’t give it up. He then claimed he called his lawyer, who told him to fork it over, which he reluctantly did.

“I want to say this for the record, they were pretty nice guys.”

Lindell is one of over 40 Trump associates to get a visit from the FBI recently in what appears to be a sweep of Trump’s friends, supporters, and associates.

(Natural News) The nation’s highest-profile law enforcement agency is also its most corrupt and politicized, and now, after years of FBI leaders doing the bidding of the far-left deep state, a growing number of rank-and-file agents have had enough.

During his program earlier this week, Fox News star Sean Hannity reported that at least 20 FBI whistleblowers have reached out to Republican members of Congress about the corruption inside the agency because they know that the current Democratic majority isn’t going to do anything about it. The Washington Times also has a report on the matter:

Kurt Siuzdak, a lawyer and former FBI agent who represents whistleblowers at the bureau, said agents tell him that Mr. Wray has lost control of the agency and should resign.

“I’m hearing from [FBI personnel] that they feel like the director has lost control of the bureau,” he told the Times. “They’re saying, ‘How does this guy survive? He’s leaving. He’s got to leave.’”

The whistleblowers are detailing to members of Congress the extensive corruption throughout the bureau as well as retaliation directed towards anyone who challenges the brass. In addition, according to the Times, Wray has been told about problems within his agency on numerous occasions but he refuses to act on them:

That includes recent whistleblower disclosures to House Judiciary Committee Republicans about agents being forced or coerced into signing false affidavits and claims of sexual harassment and stalking. It also includes fabricated terrorism cases to elevate performance statistics, as reported this month by The Times.

“[The FBI agents] are telling me they have lost confidence in Wray. All Wray does is go in and say we need more training and we’re doing stuff about it, or we will not tolerate it,” Siuzdak, told the outlet.

The FBI issued a statement to the outlet that was 100 percent BS.

“The men and women of the FBI work hard every day to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution. All employees are held to the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct, and we expect them to focus on process, rigor, and objectivity in the performance of their duties,” the statement claimed, a blatant lie considering all of the times now that the bureau has been caught either entrapping Americans or refusing to seriously investigate ‘certain’ people, like Hunter Biden and Hillary Clinton.

“Allegations of misconduct are taken seriously and referred to the Inspection Division or appropriate investigative body. In reality, the FBI is comprised of 37,000 employees who do it the right way on a daily basis to keep our nation safe by fighting violent crime, preventing terrorist attacks, and defending America from espionage and cyber threats,” the statement continued.

The Times report comes as the bureau tossed out a sacrificial lamb: Timothy Thibault, the former assistant special agent in charge at the FBI’s Washington, D.C., field office, was ‘forced out’ last week over allegations of bias against former President Donald Trump. It should be noted that he led the ‘investigation’ into Hunter Biden, but strangely, after more than two years, could not come up with any evidence to charge him despite a blatant violation of federal gun laws: Lying about drug use on a federal firearms form.

“For Wray, not tolerating it means he doesn’t do anything. And that’s what I think people are reacting to because at this point you need to have leadership stepping up and taking charge, and there is a complete leadership vacuum,” Siuzdak told the Times.

It’s patently obvious by now that the FBI cannot be ‘reformed’ or changed a bit around the edges. It needs a fundamental housecleaning of top brass, and it should start with Wray.

Here’s Hannity explaining:

Judge Grants Trump Request for Special Master to Review Docs Seized From Mar-a-Lago

According to a court order published on Monday, a federal judge will appoint a special master to review the documents and items seized by the FBI during the unprecedented raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida in order to determine which are likely to be covered by attorney-client or executive privilege.

U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon agreed with Trump’s lawyers and said that Trump still has some executive privileges after leaving office, contradicting the position taken by the Biden/Garland Justice Department.

“The Court hereby authorizes the appointment of a special master to review the seized property for personal items and documents and potentially privileged material subject to claims of attorney-client and/or executive privilege,” Cannon’s ruling states.

FBI officials were reportedly already reviewing the documents, but Cannon ordered them to stop their review and that they cannot be used in its investigation until an appointed special master assesses the documents. Cannon also ruled that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence could keep evaluating the possible risk to national security posed by the removal of classified documents, some of which were allegedly related to highly sensitive government and intelligence secrets.

 

DON’T FALL FOR IT: It’s all RIGGED beyond imagination~Deep state pushing for “blood in the streets” across America before Halloween

BY MIKE ADAMS

(Natural News) IMPORTANT: The failing intelligence deep state regime is desperately trying to save itself by provoking an armed uprising that can be blamed on conservatives and Trump supporters. They need this revolt to bury the damning facts that are now emerging about the FBI’s election interference (Hunter Biden’s laptop), covid vaccines killing people (the dead bodies are becoming too numerous to ignore), and the shocking truth about the engineered collapse of food, energy and supply chains worldwide. (People will starve and freeze this winter, all across western nations.)

The people are waking up like never before, which means the deep state must try to invoke more violence than ever before. This is why the narrative is being promulgated that claims conservatives are “semi-fascists,” even though the real fascism comes from the radical Left that rigged the election, destroyed America’s economy with covid lockdowns, and shattered the First Amendment by ordering Big Tech to censor all dissenting views.

Now, the deep state wants to bait Americans into an armed, violent uprising. They've got the tools to achieve it, too, since deep state jerk-offs are, in fact, master baiters. The coming indictment of President Trump is part of the provocation scheme designed to whip up the American people into an emotional state of revolt. And if that’s not enough, my sources tell me Democrats are making a highly organized attempt to rig the 2022 midterms and maintain control over both the House of the Senate, after which gun confiscation laws will be passed and signed into law to further provoke American conservatives into an attempted uprising.

It is critical that We the People do not fall for the provocations. Violence is what the regime wants to provoke, which means violence is exactly what we must reject. This is a time for all real Americans to “go Gandhi” against the corrupt establishment and demand the dismantling and banishing of this authoritarian, Marxist system of selective prosecutions and government-sponsored terrorism that has been weaponized against American conservatives.

CLAIM: IRS agents plan to arrest and prosecute Americans for failure to pay new “assault weapons” taxes

Over the weekend, I was told from a reliable, embedded source that the Democrats, if they hold the House and Senate, plan to pass new “assault weapons” legislation that would require nationwide registration and tax payments for each rifle (or pistol capable of holding more than 10 rounds) that a person owns. If this passes, anyone obeying the new law would effectively violate their own Fifth Amendment rights by testifying against themselves via registration of their firearms. Failure to register or pay new firearm taxes would result in one of the new 87,000 IRS agents visiting your home and arresting you at gunpoint for “tax evasion.” (This explains the need for 87,000 new IRS agents and why they need to be trained in the use of “deadly force” against the American people.)

This effort is not designed to actually confiscate all the guns, I’m told, but rather to anger the American people so much that they revolt against the government, thereby creating the chaos that the regime needs to declare an active insurrection and invoke a form of martial law that would see US troops operating on the streets of America.

Essentially, the Biden regime is trying to “J6” half the country and throw as many conservatives, Christians, and pro-2A people as possible into gulags and death camps (formerly known as “quarantine camps” under covid, of course). The regime is merely one crisis away from pulling this off.

Remember that Democrats project all their own evil intentions onto their political opponents. When Democrats claim that conservatives are “a threat to democracy,” it’s because Democrats are trashing democracy. (They rigged the 2020 election with ballot stuffing mules, after all.) When they claim conservatives are violent, it’s because radical Leftists are violent. (Antifa, anyone?) When they claim conservatives don’t value children, it’s because Democrats themselves want to mutilate and murder children via transgender surgeries and abortions.

Every accusation the Democrats hurl at conservatives is actually a description of their own dark intentions.

The coming October false flag – can it be stopped?

In addition to the warnings described above — which would take place after the midterm elections — there’s a new warning emerging about an October surprise false flag attack that’s being engineered to portray conservatives and gun owners as violent terrorists. The media narrative is already being put into place on this, as you may have noticed, and the FBI is running a Whitmer-style false flag plot to recruit disenfranchised conservatives and make them the patsies in a large-scale bombing or shooting of some kind that will be tailor-made for CNN and the media to push the final “conservatives are terrorists” narrative.

Nobody is better at plotting and carrying out large-scale acts of terrorism in America than the FBI itself, which of course masterminded the 1993 Twin Towers bombing, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Waco affair (with the help of the ATF), and the 9/11 attack in NYC. The FBI was behind each of them, running the ops, recruiting the “terrorists” and providing intelligence, hardware, and technical assistance to carry out the attacks.

This new false flag attack is likely to be carried out just in time to strongly affect the early November midterm elections, and the staged terrorism event will be used as justification to arrest as many conservative podcasters (Gavin McInnes, anyone?), social media influencers and anyone to whom some level of “revolt” talk can be attributed. The First Amendment be damned, the Biden regime is going to say that any conservatives who merely expressed disagreement with the Biden regime are by definition guilty of yelling fire in a crowded theater and subject to arrest, even if they had nothing at all to do with whatever event unfolds.

That’s the mega-false flag event that’s being planned, I’m told. At the same time, there still exist white hat forces inside the FBI, DOJ, Pentagon, police forces, law enforcement, etc., who have a real shot at frustrating or even halting this effort. There’s a civil war right now inside the FBI and the Pentagon (both), and with each passing day, more and more government agents are realizing if they don’t get on the side of freedom and the rule of law, they will watch their own country go down in flames in the coming chaos. The worst deep state actors are rapidly running out of friends, and it is notable that even J6 wasn’t able to be pulled off as they had hoped. It fizzled. And the same may happen with the October surprise being planned. (Let us pray for peace and wisdom so that all those who are able to see can discern the truth about what’s happening and thereby help stop it.)

Improved election integrity in multiple states is also a positive factor

Notably, nearly two dozen US states have passed laws improving election integrity since the stolen 2020 election, and this may be a decisive factor in preventing the Dems from successfully rigging the midterms. If the GOP can seize the House — even without the Senate — the Biden regime’s most nefarious plans for gun confiscations and a civil war revolt are sent back to the drawing board. For this reason, voting for GOP candidates is critical to saving America, even as much as we are all fed up with the RINOs and the jellyfish spines of conservative lawmakers who seem utterly incapable of doing anything useful when they gain power.

In addition, many mainstream news publishers have seen enough of the lawlessness of the Democrats to start sounding the alarm. The WSJ, incredibly, is now calling out the FBI for its unjustifiable raid on Mar-a-Lago, as it seems the radical deep staters on the Left have gone too far even for Wall Street. After all, even the WSJ knows that a civil war or martial law is bad for markets, and as much as the WSJ pushes the mainstream narrative on almost everything (vaccines, Ukraine, etc.), it has obviously come to realize that if we don’t stop this lawlessness by the Democrats, whatever free market foundation still surviving in America is likely to be obliterated.

Tyranny is bad for business, in other words. Especially when you know where this is going: Price controls for food and fuel, followed by government seizure of private producers, resulting in full-blown fascism/communism as the government seizes the means of production and plunged America into a Venezuela-like collapse scenario, run by authoritarian tyrants who answer to anti-human globalists.

Many in the mainstream who have been anti-Trump for the last six years are now suddenly realizing that the Democrats aren’t going to stop at destroying Trump… they’re going to destroy America! Thus, they must be stopped simply out of a concern for self-preservation.

So the good news is that the most nefarious plans of the radical Marxists aren’t guaranteed to succeed. There are powerful forces now lining up against them, which is precisely why they’re pulling a “Hail Mary” false flag attempt to demonize conservatives and seize even more federal power under the next declared emergency. Critically, gun owners, Trump supporters, and Christians need to stay calm and refuse to be cajoled into acts of violence. If they stay calm and resist the violence, the Biden regime ends up burying itself under corruption and fraud, and the American people have a real chance at restoring their constitutional republic.

FBI Releases Docs on Raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Home. Read It Here.~FBI Affidavit Behind Trump Raid Says Classified Info and Disorganized Docs Prompted Search and Seizure

BY VICTORIA TAFT

The FBI’s affidavit supporting the raid at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home appears to be based on the president possessing classified materials and messy record-keeping.

The raid on Trump’s home on August 8, 2022, was the first time the home of a president of the United States had ever been tossed by the feds.

According to the redacted document, the FBI believed that Trump had in his possession a variety of classified materials including materials marked with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) labels, perhaps supporting the notion that the former president was looking at documents concerning the Russia collusion hoax.

The documents the FBI claims support their raid of Mar-a-Lago will probably look ugly for former President Donald Trump. After all, these are documents used to convince a judge to approve a never-before-tried search on a former president in what looks by all appearances to be in contravention of the U.S. Constitution.

A couple of things to mention here as we read through the documents and update this story. In a memorandum explaining the search warrant affidavit, the FBI outlined that the redacted portions would remain sealed, in an apparent deal with the judge.

Here are some of the accommodations made for the FBI with Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart:

  • The redacted material remains under seal
  • Witness identities will remain secret
  • Minor information which may out law enforcement will remain secret
  • Outing certain information would allow Trump to “frustrate” their investigation

Reporters trying to get a look at the documents crashed the DOJ’s  PACER website (but you can read it below).

Both law professor Jonathan Turley and Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton reported the crash.

Turley observed that the speed with which these documents were released shows that the judge just went along with all recommended FBI redactions. He called it “concerning.”

We understand that the affidavit itself is heavily redacted, as expected. And, considering that the memo introducing the affidavit was itself redacted, we don’t doubt the final product will look like a blacked-out crossword puzzle.

We’ll update this breaking story as we get information.

FBI Affidavit Behind Trump Raid Says Classified Info and Disorganized Docs Prompted Search and Seizure

The FBI’s affidavit supporting the raid at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, otherwise known in the affidavit as the “TARGET PREMISES,” appears to be based on the president possessing classified materials,  his messy record-keeping, and the assumptions of an FBI agent.

The raid on Aug. 8, 2022, was the first time a president’s home had ever been tossed by the Feds.

According to the 38-page affidavit, the probable cause to raid the former president’s Florida home stems from the 15 boxes of documents he turned over to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) that “contained newspapers, magazines, printed news articles, photos, miscellaneous print-outs, notes, presidential correspondence, personal and post- presidential records, and ‘a lot of classified records.’ Of most significant concern was that highly classified records were unfolded, intermixed with other records, and otherwise unproperly [sic] identified.”

Agents reported that there were documents with a variety of classified markings, including, they claim, things “which appear” to be defense-related. “The FBI’s investigation has established that documents bearing classification markings, which appear to contain National Defense Information (NDI), were among the materials contained in the FIFTEEN BOXES and were stored at the PREMISES.”

The affidavit claims that in May FBI agents going through the boxes discovered “184 unique documents [sic] bearing classification markings, including 67 documents marked as CONFIDENTIAL, 92 documents marked as SECRET, and 25 documents marked as TOP SECRET. Fm1her [sic], the FBI agents observed markings reflecting the following compa11ments [sic]/dissemination controls: HCS, FISA, ORCON, NOFORN, and SI.” The agent wrote that he assumed that some of the documents possibly contained NDI, saying, “based on my training and experience, I know that documents classified at these levels typically contain NDI. Several of the documents also contained what appears to be FPOTUS’s handwritten notes.”

Under the Presidential Records Act, even presidents may not hold defense information.

Former President Trump has filed a lawsuit demanding a “special master,” usually a retired judge, to go through documents and other materials seized from his home.

NARA, which referred the records battle to the FBI, was especially concerned that after Trump left the White House “moving trucks were spotted at Mar-a-Lago.” The affidavit used local news sources to support that Trump had absconded with documents because “at least two moving trucks were observed at the PREMISES on January 18, 2021.”

The General Services Administration (GSA) is generally responsible for packing up official materials, but it’s unknown if government employees were responsible for packing what was in the moving trucks on the date specified by NARA. NARA also seem miffed that, though the meetings with the president to claw back materials were contentious, he issued a statement saying that he gladly gave back the materials.

The affidavit features 17 blacked out or nearly blacked out pages.

As I reported at PJ Media, the redactions were made for several reasons in agreement with the magistrate.

Here are some of the accommodations made for the FBI with Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart:

  • The redacted material remains under seal
  • Witness identities will remain secret
  • Minor information which may out law enforcement will remain secret
  • Outing certain information would allow Trump to “frustrate” their investigation

According to the redacted document the FBI believed that Trump had in his possession a variety of classified materials including materials marked with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which may support the claim from Kash Patel, the former chief investigator on the Russia Collusion hoax for the House Intelligence Committee, that Trump was reading through the FBI Crossfire Hurricane documents.

At PJ Media, we believe it’s important to treat classified documents in a serious and respectful way. Balanced against the Fourth Amendment raid of Trump’s home before an election, however, there’s more going on here than just ticking off NARA.

Besides Trump suing to force a special master to go through the documents in question and not the FBI, the former president has a formidable task ahead of him to defend his ability to possess the documents. The president has wide latitude to classify and declassify the documents in his possession, which he did, as we’ve reported at PJ Media. The task will be to counter the fight the DOJ and FBI will put up. And if you don’t think they will, you aren’t paying attention.

It’s hard to forget the statement by disgraced former FBI Director James Comey. Comey laughed over sending agents during the busy Trump transition to have a chat with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

I sent them — something we, I probably wouldn’t have done or gotten away with in a more organized investigation — a more organized administration. The FBI wanted to send agents into the White House itself to interview a senior official. You would work through the White House counsel and there were discussions and approvals and it would be there and I thought, it’s early enough. Let’s just send a couple of guys over.

The agreement with President Obama over millions of pages of documents took years to settle with NARA.

Trump is a difficult man. Name me one president who hasn’t been. It’s clear there are different standards for Trump than for other presidents.

WHISTLEBLOWER: FBI Officials Instructed Agents Not to Investigate Hunter Biden’s Laptop Before 2020 Election

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

According to Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), a whistleblower claims that FBI officials told investigators not to look into Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 presidential election, saying they’re “not going to change the outcome of the election again.”

“These new allegations provide even more evidence of FBI corruption and renew calls for you to take immediate steps to investigate the FBI’s actions regarding the laptop,” the senator wrote in a letter to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Tuesday that detailed the whistleblower’s claims.

This bombshell comes on the heels of the FBI coming under scrutiny in the wake of the unprecedented raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. Memos revealed that the Biden White House worked directly with the Justice Department and National Archives to launch the criminal investigation into Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents.

Johnson said that “individuals with knowledge of the FBI’s apparent corruption” revealed to his office that FBI brass deliberately obstructed the investigation into President Biden’s son.

“After the FBI obtained the Hunter Biden laptop from the Wilmington, Delaware, computer shop, these whistleblowers stated that local FBI leadership told employees, ‘you will not look at that Hunter Biden laptop’ and that the FBI is ‘not going to change the outcome of the election again,’” Johnson wrote.

According to the whistleblowers, the FBI did not begin reviewing the contents of the younger Biden’s laptop until after the 2020 election, which Johnson says might have been a year after the FBI got it in December 2019.

Johnson called on Inspector General Horowitz to investigate.

“While I understand your hesitation to investigate a matter that may be related to an ongoing investigation, it is clear to me based on numerous credible whistleblower disclosures that the FBI cannot be trusted with the handling of Hunter Biden’s laptop,” Johnson wrote.

National Archives letter unveils Biden's role in Trump raid

The three lawyers representing former President Donald Trump minced no words in the lawsuit they filed on his behalf against the Department of Justice on Monday afternoon:

On August 8, 2022, in a shockingly aggressive move — and with no understanding of the distress that it would cause most Americans — roughly two dozen Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), directed by attorneys of the U.S. Department of Justice (the “Government”), raided the home of President Donald J. Trump.

According to the government, the agents seized documents, privileged and/or potentially privileged materials, and other items — including photos, handwritten notes, and even President Trump’s passports — that were outside the lawful reach of an already overbroad warrant.

The lawsuit implied that broad overreach reflected the weaponization of law enforcement:

Law enforcement is a shield that protects Americans. It cannot be used as a weapon for political purposes.

The suit raises several questions by the former president:

  1. Why raid my home with a platoon of federal agents when I [Trump] have voluntarily cooperated with your every request?
  2. What are you trying to hide from the public — given that you requested that I turn off all home security cameras, and even refused to allow my attorneys to observe what your agents were doing?
  3. Why have you refused to tell me what you took from my home?

The government has, so far, claims the suit, been either unable or unwilling to answer these questions:

The Government has declined to provide even the most basic information about what was taken, or why….

Significantly, the Government has refused to provide President Trump with any reason for the unprecedented, general search of his home.

To date, the Government has failed to legitimize its historic decision to raid the home of a President who had been fully cooperative.

Building its case that the search was “unreasonable” and therefore in violation of the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition of such searches, the suit claimed that “the actual chronology of events clearly establishes that there was no “exigency [pressing or urgent need] for a forceful raid.”

The lawsuit claimed that the warrant issued by the magistrate judge was so broadly written that it, for all intents and purposes, served as a “general warrant” that allowed agents to “rummage” through Trump’s private papers and personal effects. It quoted from previous rulings that the Fourth Amendment was designed to prohibit the “specific evil” of such “rummaging in a person’s belongings.”

The lawsuit reviewed some history behind the Fourth Amendment:

That type of rummaging was permitted [demanded] during the colonial era by a “general warrant,” which the Fourth Amendment is specifically intended to preclude….

It is familiar history that indiscriminate searches and seizures conducted under the authority of “general warrants” were the immediate evils that motivated the framing and adoption of the Fourth Amendment.

The warrant failed the “particularity” test (i.e., “No warrants shall issue but upon probable cause … and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized”):

In fact, the Search Warrant’s broad scope was in violation of the Fourth Amendment’s particularity requirement and thus the warrant permitted a “general search,” prohibited as unconstitutional since red-coated [British] soldiers created the need for the requirement in the first place.

Because Trump and his lawyers don’t trust the DOJ or the FBI, the suit asks the court to halt the investigation into the papers they seized, and to provide a third party — an outside unaffiliated party called a Special Master — to conduct the investigation. Such a third party is needed, claims the lawsuit, “to preserve the sanctity of executive communications and other privileged materials.”

The suit made it clear that Trump and his lawyers don’t trust the “Government”:

With the conclusion that the materials seized from [the Trump residence] are all presumptively privileged, it is unreasonable to allow the prosecutorial team to review them without meaningful safeguards.… Only a neutral review by a Special Master can protect the “great public interest.”

The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida, where it will be heard by a Trump appointee, Judge Aileen Cannon.

Trump to Sue DOJ Over FBI Raid on Mar-a-Lago

REVEALED: Biden White House Directly Involved in Conspiracy to Entrap Trump in Criminal FBI Probe

BY MATT MARGOLIS

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2022/08/22/revealed-biden-white-house-directly-involved-in-conspiracy-to-entrap-trump-in-criminal-fbi-probe-n1623323;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

In the wake of the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted multiple times that no one in the White House (from Joe Biden all the way down) had any role in the investigation of Trump or knew about the raid. They used the Obama administration’s go-to talking point that they only heard about it through the media.

But, according to memos obtained by Just the News, the Biden White House worked directly with the Justice Department and National Archives to launch the criminal investigation into Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents and deny Trump’s claims of executive privilege.

The memos show then-White House Deputy Counsel Jonathan Su was engaged in conversations with the FBI, DOJ and National Archives as early as April, shortly after 15 boxes of classified and other materials were voluntarily returned to the federal historical agency from Trump’s Florida home.

By May, Su conveyed to the Archives that President Joe Biden would not object to waiving his predecessor’s claims to executive claims, a decision that opened the door for DOJ to get a grand jury to issue a subpoena compelling Trump to turn over any remaining materials he possessed from his presidency.

The machinations are summarized in several memos and emails exchanged between the various agencies in spring 2022, months before the FBI took the added unprecedented step of raiding Trump’s Florida compound with a court-issued search warrant.

On May 10, Acting National Archivist Debra Steidel Wall sent Trump’s lawyers a letter that detailed the White House’s involvement.

“On April 11, 2022, the White House Counsel’s Office—affirming a request from the Department of Justice supported by an FBI letterhead memorandum—formally transmitted a request that NARA provides the FBI access to the 15 boxes for its review within seven days, with the possibility that the FBI might request copies of specific documents following its review of the boxes,” Wall wrote.

According to John Solomon of Just the News, the letter “revealed Biden empowered the National Archives and Records Administration to waive any claims to executive privilege that Trump might wage to block DOJ from gaining access to the documents.”

So, not only did the White House lie, they lied big time. The Biden White House was directly behind the effort to launch a criminal probe of Donald Trump, Biden’s 2020 opponent, and potential 2024 opponent, in part by eliminating a potential legal defense Trump’s team might use in a battle with the FBI over access to the documents.

Biden’s waiving of executive privilege over Trump documents was seen as a highly unusual and suspicious move at the time, though it was widely believed that the move was made solely to allow the J6 Committee access to them in their witch-hunt. Now it seems it was part of a conspiracy to entrap President Trump. That’s why the White House repeatedly made unconvincing claims that they had no prior knowledge or involvement in the investigation that resulted in the unprecedented raid of Mar-a-Lago.

This scandal just got a whole lot more serious.

Pence Defends FBI, Shows How Out of Touch He Really Is

Tone-Deaf Pence: ‘Attacks on the FBI Must Stop’

Former Vice President Mike Pence confirmed on Wednesday that he has about as much chance of being the Republican nominee for president in 2024 as Nancy Pelosi has of joining the Radio City Rockettes. Demonstrating a tone-deafness of Olympian proportions, Pence had harsh words for the Republicans who are appalled at how the FBI has become a tool of the partisan vendetta of Old Joe Biden and Merrick Garland against Donald Trump. In Pence’s world, the stout-hearted G-Men are still of unquestionable integrity, square-jawed, patriotic, non-partisan, and ever-vigilant for truth, justice, and the American way. It hasn’t been that way for a long time if it ever was, but Mike hasn’t noticed.

Pence, who has something of the mien of an upright, taciturn fed himself, said: “The Republican Party is the party of law and order. And these attacks on the FBI must stop; calls to defund the FBI are just as wrong as calls to defund the police.” According to ABC News, Pence added that while he was “deeply troubled” over the raid on Trump’s home, “the party can still hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable ‘without attacking the rank-and-file law enforcement personnel at the FBI.’”

Well, sure. There are no doubt a few FBI agents left who are conscientious and patriotic and are trying to do a good job for the American people. If Americans were storming FBI offices in the hinterlands and brutalizing well-meaning agents who had nothing to do with the Russian collusion hoax or the attempt to brand angry parents at school board meetings as terrorists, Pence might have a point. But they aren’t, and he doesn’t.

“The truth of the matter is,” said Pence after ignoring the major facts at hand, “we need to get to the bottom of what happened. We need to let the facts play out, but more than anything else, the American people need to be reassured in the integrity of our justice system and the very appearance of a recurrence of politics playing a role in decisions that the Justice Department demands transparency as never before.”

Yes, that’s actually true in a sense. We do need to get to the bottom of what happened, but Americans who are paying attention have already seen “the integrity of our justice system” seriously called into question. There is not only the FBI’s involvement in the Russia hoax, but the fact that Hillary Clinton and Hunter Biden were not indicted and so much more that indicates that the FBI is not dealing dispassionately and impartially and that the Biden administration is using what is supposed to be neutral law enforcement to play partisan politics in the most dishonest fashion imaginable.

Even besides all that, there is the fact that J. Christian Adams reported about on June 30: Lindsay Capodilupo, the FBI’s “Election Crimes Coordinator” (does she investigate those “election crimes” or perpetrate them?) works closely with the Democracy Fund, which Adams calls “a hyper-funded progressive money source.” Is the FBI’s “Election Crimes Coordinator” also working with some patriotic election integrity group? The chances of that are about zero minus eight degrees.

Has Mike Pence missed everything that has happened over the last few years? Has he missed the deep concern of patriotic Americans that something has gone seriously wrong in Washington, not least with the FBI, and that there is a very good reason why the bureau and other agencies are plummeting in the levels of trust they enjoy among the citizens they’re supposed to be protecting?

If the home of any prominent Leftist accused of illegal activity had been raided, Pence might be justified to be so sanguine, but the double standard is glaring. It was with good reason that Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) said that the Mar-a-Lago raid was “a complete abuse and overreach of [the FBI’s] authority.” That’s what it looks like. If Pence wants us all to trust the FBI again, that impression has to be definitively dispelled. But do the corrupt Leftists who are running the FBI now even want to dispel it?

Mike Pence is running for president as if it’s 1976 and he is Gerald Ford, the solid technocrat trying to emerge from the shadow of his disgraced former boss. But the FBI trying for years to frame Trump isn’t Watergate, and Pence is not going to get anywhere by buying into the Left’s vicious caricature of Trump as some kind of arch-criminal. Mike Pence is out of touch. If he really hopes to have a real chance in 2024, he needs to get out of the Beltway and find out what Americans are really thinking.

Majority of Americans Agree: FBI Is Corrupt and Politicized

FBI DEGENERATES INTO A NAZI GESTAPO-LIKE AGENCY

Up until recently, it would have been unthinkable, but one of the numerous catastrophic consequences of the Biden administration’s reign of terror has been a plummeting of trust in once-revered institutions. Former Trump advisor Roger Stone said it in November 2021: “We have a group of politicized thugs​ ​at the top of the FBI who are using the FBI … as Joe Biden‘s personal Gestapo​.”

After the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, Rasmussen Reports surveyed Americans regarding their attitude toward the FBI and reported on Thursday that “a majority (53%) of voters now agree with Stone’s statement — up from 46% in December — including 34% who Strongly Agree.” That’s an extraordinarily severe credibility problem for the FBI. But will they do anything to correct this impression? Almost certainly not.

Rasmussen noted that their “new national telephone and online survey” found that “44% of Likely U.S. voters say the FBI raid on Trump’s Florida home made them trust the FBI less, compared to 29% who say it made them trust the bureau more. Twenty-three percent (23%) say the Trump raid did not make much difference in their trust of the FBI.”

The news isn’t all bad for the bureau that the overwhelming majority of Americans once regarded as impervious to corruption and above the political fray. Despite all that Merrick Garland, Christopher Wray, the Steele Dossier, and the undercover agent-laden (if not undercover agent-driven) plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, as well as all the unresolved questions about FBI agents’ involvement in the Jan. 6 non-insurrection, have done to damage the FBI’s reputation, half of the surveyed voters still “have a favorable impression of the FBI, including 26% who have a Very Favorable view of the bureau.”

It’s hard not to wonder what planet these people are on, now that the Russian collusion business has been definitively exposed as a hoax. On the other hand, Peter Strzok is still claiming that Trump has a Russian passport hidden away in Moscow, so you know what they say, there’s one born every minute.

Meanwhile, back on Planet Earth, “forty-six percent (46%) now view the FBI unfavorably. including 29% who have a Very Unfavorable impression of the bureau.” The only real question here is why those numbers are still so low, but the Rasmussen survey does indicate that Americans are catching on to how corrupt and politicized Biden’s handlers’ FBI has become: “Fifteen percent (15%) of voters believe FBI Director Christopher Wray is better than most of those who held the job before him, while twice as many (30%) think Wray is worse than most of his predecessors.”

That’s good, although Wray’s total corruption of the bureau calls into question the conduct of his predecessors in ways it has never been questioned before: did the FBI really dig up all that dirt on Martin Luther King, Jr., for example, or did rogue feds cook it all up themselves? We may never know. But for over a third of the electorate, all is well, and Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. and company are still as unimpeachable as ever: “Thirty-eight percent (38%) think Wray’s performance is about the same as most previous FBI directors, and another 18% are not sure.”

Meanwhile, Democrats, heedless of the fact that a rogue, lawless authoritarian government could one day turn on them, are still popping the corks over the Mar-a-Lago raid: “Approval of the FBI, including its raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, is highest among Democratic voters. Seventy-five percent (75%) of Democrats now have a favorable opinion of the FBI, up from 63% in December. Only 30% of Republicans now view the FBI favorably, down from 38% in December; nearly half (49%) of GOP voters now have a Very Unfavorable impression of the FBI.” Independents are getting disenchanted with the feds, also: “Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 45% have a favorable impression of the FBI and 50% view the bureau unfavorably.”

These results are tied directly to the raid itself: “Fifty percent (50%) of Democrats say the FBI’s recent raid on Trump’s home made them trust the FBI more, but 70% of Republicans say the Mar-a-Lago raid made them trust the FBI less. Among unaffiliated voters, 46% say the raid on Trump made them trust the FBI less, while 18% said it made them trust the FBI more and 29% say the Trump raid did not make much difference in their trust of the FBI.” Half the Democrats say they trust the FBI more now that it raided Trump’s house; it will be interesting to see how many feel the same way when some of those 87,000 new and armed IRS agents come knocking.

The support for the idea that FBI agents are now Old Joe’s enforcer squad was also sharply divided along party lines: “Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans agree with Roger Stone’s quote about the FBI leadership using the bureau as ‘Joe Biden‘s personal Gestapo,’ while 57% of Democrats disagree. Among unaffiliated voters, 49% agree with the ‘Gestapo’ quote, 38% disagree and another 14% are not sure.”

Will the FBI ever get its reputation back? It will on the day that it starts administering impartial justice, as Merrick Garland boasted that it did. But that day doesn’t look as if it’s going to come around anytime soon.

BREAKING: Attorneys address the Mar-a-Lago raid affidavit ruling

BREAKING: DHS Whistleblower LEAKS Joint Intelligence Bulletin on ‘Domestic Violent Extremists’~Jim Jordan says 14 whistleblowers have come forward with allegations of FBI misconduct

• Document lists perceptions of “government overreach” and “election fraud” as red flags. • “The threats we have observed, to date, underscore that DVEs [Domestic Violent Extremists] may view the 2022 midterm election as an additional flashpoint around which to escalate threats against perceived ideological opponents, including federal law enforcement personnel.” • “Information contained in this intelligence bulletin is for official use only. No portion of this bulletin should be released to the media, the general public, or over nonsecure Internet servers. Release of this material could adversely affect or jeopardize investigative activities.” Project Veritas released a leaked document today from within the Department of Homeland Security which shows how federal agencies are reacting to the recent raid of President Trump’s Florida home. In the document, the DHS warns of a heightened security risk for federal agents, specifically FBI agents, because of the Mar-a-Lago raid. In addition to listing potential warning signs for Domestic Violent Extremists [DVEs], the DHS predicts that violent threats may continue to escalate this year. “The threats we have observed, to date, underscore that DVEs [Domestic Violent Extremists] may view the 2022 midterm election as an additional flashpoint around which to escalate threats against perceived ideological opponents, including federal law enforcement personnel,” the document reads. The document also appears to state that DVE ideology tends to be aligned with the ideas that “government overreach” and “election fraud” are a threat to the country. “In recent years, DVEs adhering to different violent extremist ideologies have coalesced around perceptions of government overreach and election fraud to threaten and conduct violence. As a result of recent activities, we assess that potential targets of DVE violence moving forward could include law enforcement, judicial officials, individuals implicated in conspiracy theories, and perceived ideological opponents who challenge their worldview.” The leaked material concludes with a warning to agents that the public should not know this information. “Information contained in this intelligence bulletin is for official use only. No portion of this bulletin should be released to the media, the general public, or over nonsecure Internet servers. Release of this material could adversely affect or jeopardize investigative activities.”

Jim Jordan says 14 whistleblowers have come forward with allegations of FBI misconduct

Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan says that 14 whistleblowers have come forward with allegations of misconduct by the FBI. National Correspondent Logan Ratick reports.

(Natural News) If Republicans manage to win back the House, the Senate, or both, they’re going to have their hands full with oversight duties regarding the very corrupt, very politicized Biden regime.

It’s become obvious that the hacks working behind the scenes for Barack Obama while the dementia president takes all of the heat are intent on punishing Donald Trump and his supporters, using the false flag Jan. 6 attack as their excuse.

After more than five years of investigations, allegations, false charges, and phony narratives, nothing has stuck, legally, so the latest episode involved literally raiding Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last week to scoop up anything and everything that could be used to jam up the former president, charge him with a crime — any crime — and hopefully prevent him from running again in 2024 because they are scared to death he will win (again). The left-wing deep state knows it can’t steal the 2024 election because tens of millions of Americans will be watching every move.

But just when it appeared as though every staffer and every agent in every federal department is corrupt and politicized, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) announced in a Sunday interview that more than a dozen FBI whistleblower agents have contacted his office to tell their stories of massive corruption.

The Ohio Republican, who happens to be the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News host Trey Gowdy that at least 14 FBI whistleblowers have come forward following the raid.

The Washington Examiner reports:

During a conversation about alleged politicization at the Justice Department, along with former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, Jordan made the case that the public has “figured it out” when it comes to what he characterized as the Left generating a lie, the “Big Media” reporting the lie, Big Tech amplifying the lie, and then both piling on Republicans when they catch on and say something. He said there are agents in the bureau who have realized the same.

“Fourteen FBI agents have come to our office as whistleblowers, and they are good people,” Jordan noted. “There are lots of good people in the FBI. It’s the top that is the problem. Some of these good agents are coming to us, telling us what is baloney, what’s going on — the political nature now of the Justice Department — God bless them for doing it — talking about the school board issue, about a whole host of issues.”

Conservative Brief adds: “Around two months ago, Jordan told Fox News host Laura Ingraham that a half-dozen agents had approached his committee regarding a controversial order from Attorney General Merrick Garland for the FBI to begin monitoring parents who showed up to local school board meetings angry about divisive curriculum and sexually explicit materials in libraries. In addition, four of the six agents expressed concerns regarding the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol Building.”

Since then, more agents have come forward.

“It is becoming a well-worn trail of agents who say, ‘This has got to stop.’ And thank goodness for them,” Jordan said on Sunday.

WATCH:

GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley, the New York Post reported, has also contacted the Justice Department and the FBI with the information he has obtained from whistleblowers as well, indicating massive bias and politicization of both agencies.

In the letter, he said that if the allegations revealed to him are proven it would indicate without question both the DOJ and FBI are “institutionally corrupted to their very core.”

“The information provided to my office involves concerns about the FBI’s receipt and use of derogatory information relating to Hunter Biden and the FBI’s false portrayal of acquired evidence as disinformation. The volume and consistency of these allegations substantiate their credibility and necessitate this letter,” the senator wrote.
