[January 9, 2022] The FBI enjoys the reputation of a legion of good Samaritans. Countless movies and shows glorify the agency and highlight its crusade to protect justice in the United States. Despite all this, the FBI’s corruption runs rampant, and its leaders are not held to account. Despite the corruption, I believe the people of America are finally starting to wake up about this scandal-ridden, immoral, and dishonorable government bureaucracy. The U.S. government weaponizes the FBI to go after those who most love liberty and the patriotic citizens of our great nation. If this doesn’t scare you, nothing will. The FBI considers themselves the untouchables. How sad, yet how predictable is it?
The biggest problems of the FBI are not being fixed but, under its current director Chris Wray (10-year term ends in 2027), corruption is both reinforced and encouraged. The FBI, today, has a standard operating procedure of employing selective justice. Some people are “too big politically” to prosecute for their crimes, while you and I come directly under their scrutiny. Others have effectively paid off the bigwigs in the FBI to look the other way, squash investigations, and re-direct funds to ensure certain “people of value” are not troubled. And, even if you are innocent and you fit their profile as a political dissident or whistleblower, they have you in their cross-hairs and will harass you, your family, and your employer.
We all know about the FBI’s illicit investigations of political opponents in the Donald Trump administration. Irrespective of your political leanings, you must acknowledge that such behavior is unacceptable in a modern society based on principles established first under English Law. Spying on innocent civilians, gun enthusiasts, Christians, patriots, and conservatives is a scandal that should be the focus of a Congressional investigation and the removal of those in the FBI involved in this activity. Sadly, that is not happening. The FBI has a lot of dirty cops, and the outrage goes to the very top of the Bureau.
The FBI has become the enforcement arm of the Democrat Party. I hate to say this, but we allowed this to happen. It began with the rational idea that members of the FBI could be political as long as it didn’t hurt the way we at the Bureau did our business of going after the bad guys. Freedom of association and freedom of speech; good ideals, but we allowed that to become a weapon to destroy those who recommended changes to shift the FBI away from political influence. And, things are getting worse, not better, as the Agency continues to absorb more political-leaning agents with a green light to harass law-abiding citizens they don’t like.
A solution to fix the horrendous problem is to remove those who led the FBI. It starts with removing the worst director ever in charge, Chris Wray. Any U.S. President that doesn’t fire him, is guilty by association of this corrupt, selfish, attention-seeking man. And because President Joe Biden is “on their side,” that is not going to happen anytime soon. The Chinese Communist Party, at a staggering clip, now influences the FBI. Joe Biden is allowing his Chinese corruption to support the FBI’s unofficial mission to support any political structure that doesn’t see China as a problem.
People of America have lost their trust and confidence in the FBI. From lying to and misleading Congress, going after political opponents, accepting bribes, and allowing themselves to be used as a tool of one political party (and China), all of this means a major effort is necessary to turn this bureaucracy around. America is a great nation. However, we should be concerned about what destroyed past governments America was modeled on. No matter what society it takes place in, corruption is a problem and must be combated at every opportunity. The FBI is not the untouchables. They need to be brought to heel by the American people.
