FBI Investigations Have Become Like Tabloid Stories

By Joe Jarvis

Is the FBI a political organization run rampant, using trumped-up charges against anyone with whom they or the political elites disagree?

That’s what you would be told from the likes of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and now Bernie Sanders. All three (or Bernie’s wife rather) have been embroiled in some sort of FBI shenanigans within the last year.

For Hillary, even though she was obviously a corrupt crook, she was not charged, despite Comey basically admitting she should be charged. But still, the FBI released a damaging letter just weeks before the election. Officially, this hurt an “innocent person,” but in real life, it was a meager attempt to assign blame to someone everyone knew could outmaneuver any authorities.

So in that case alone, no matter how you slice it, the FBI was alternatively corrupt, incompetent, complicit, and political.

Interestingly, Clinton supporters had no problem wholeheartedly condemning the investigation into Clinton assuming it to be a political charade to damage an innocent woman. But then those same people had no problem flipping and assuming an FBI investigation to equal guilt as soon as Donald Trump was dragged into one.

But what is more, is that Trump was actually never personally under investigation by the FBI. So not only does the FBI have the power to ruin reputations over investigations, the agency doesn’t even have to have a case to bring its weight to bear.

Comey’s silence is what really made the media blow up over the whole Russian ties meme. No wonder Trump fired a guy who refused to publicly state the truth about the investigation, knowing his silence was fueling false rumors.

Bernie Sanders’ wife may have committed fraud while filling out applications for student aid for the now bankrupt Burlington College of which she was President. Go figure a Socialist ran a college into the ground. Maybe that’s why she had to lie on the applications; the true problem was she wasn’t being given enough of other people’s money!

But no, I am only joking, because an investigation does not itself prove guilt. In America, you are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, despite how strong the evidence is against you. And that is the problem, that the FBI has massive power to throw their weight around, smear and drag down politicians all outside of their official capacity as an investigation agency.

Whoever directs the FBI will have too much power, because a simple letter or remaining silent can throw the media into a frenzy of finger-pointing, accusations, and false conclusions. They can turn nothing into a scandal and a scandal into nothing.

And while people sway back and forth, deciding based on the circumstances whether the FBI is legit or not, all I see is a big steaming bowl of corruption. It seems that an FBI investigation is just a political tool available for purchase. It seems also that the dropping of an FBI investigation is a political product available for purchase. Power is the currency in Washington, and politicians have countless ways to pay their debts or collect what is owed to them.

This behavior should not be surprising from such an organization as the FBI. Every level of government behaves the same way. They take your rights and sell them back to you for the price of a license. The IRS points a gun at your head and says the price to put it down is about 50% of what you earned last year. The local police do the same, as well as the state tax collectors and enforcers, and so on.

But there appears to be little coordination or organization in who the FBI strikes. Clearly, the Clinton investigation would have benefited Trump the most. And then, it was a Trump staffer from Vermont who made the original allegations against Sanders, which appear to be at least somewhat true. But Trump was also targeted by the FBI for some bad press at least.

Despite all the investigations, nothing really comes of it. So is the FBI really just the newest tabloid, the National Enquirer for politics, quietly dropping any initially well-publicized story that either turned out to be false or an inconvenient truth?

What conclusion can we come to other than that the FBI cannot be trusted to do its job, do its job right, and only do its job? And this is only talking about what disorganization the agency has fallen into over the past year or two. There are a million other reasons to believe that the FBI is hopelessly corrupt; just look briefly into the agency’s founding under J. Edgar Hoover or one of their darkest moments surrounding the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.

The only real solution would be disbanding the FBI. It, like most other government agencies, has simply become a tool of politicians and bureaucrats to wield power and climb the DC ladder.

With most government agencies, we should be asking, would this organization still exist in a free market? The way the current FBI behaves it would likely see customers and investors flee. The agency cannot be trusted and is currently a larger threat to individuals’ rights and freedoms than it is a protector of those liberties.

  1. Where have you been? Under a rock? That organization has ALWAYS been dirty. The stuff you know about is just the tip of the iceberg. Old Hoover would have been proud of how is agency is doing today. It’s the ultimate con. A criminal organization masquerading as on of the worlds leading crimefighting agencies.

    • Just an interesting connection as to whom really calls the shots, J. Edgar was a Knight of Malta. All roads really do lead to Rome, even in this corporation pretending to be a nation. DC was originally called Rome, Maryland, it was built on seven hills, and is in the “vagina” between Virginia (Virgin) and Maryland (Mary). It is referred to by the corrupt as the New Jerusalem. I could go on for days about this, but suffice it to say you’re absolutely correct, it’s always been dirty – that which starts out corrupt, stays corrupt and ultimately corrupts absolutely or garbage in, garbage out.

  2. I’ve got plenty of experience with the FBI, and some of those with whom they work. Your original assertions are spot on, only it’s worse. Much worse. They got me in the system by committing a major crime, then arresting me for it. Later, one of their assets attempted to drag me into a murder and other crimes. Several years afterwards, he actually showed me his U.S. Department of Justice computer printout. They aren’t just scum. They’re demonic. And while we’re on the topic, I’ve been wondering lately what was done with the hundreds of passengers aboard those planes on 911 which did NOT hit the Twin Towers. Last I know, they were in a hangar making cell phone calls to others, since cell phones were incapable of high-flight calls, and cues were left in the messages. The FBI should have been in the 1998 “Enemy Of The State” film’s credits. In-home FBI surveillance at three residential addresses provided fodder for some of the film’s scenes. One was on a Woodlawn Avenue in Tustin, California, and provided the premise for Jon Voight’s later religious film, “Woodlawn”. (In the 1998 film, Jon Voight’s NSA character was born on September 11th, while Gene Hackman and Will Smith discussed bringing down the towers). Last Christmas when the FBI put out their holiday greetings “From our family to yours”, it was actuallly loaded – as are their Hollywood films – with double meaning. I can explain that in a much longer posting. But as the Good Book says, they will be remmebered no more one day. Something to look forward to

    • Ever heard of paragraphs friend?

      • Yeah, but it wasn’t really that long. Sometimes paragraphs make a posting seem long or disjointed. But I hear ya and will keep it in mind for future postings. The address on Woodlawn was 12402 Woodlawn Avenue, another was 3130 Limerick Lane in Costa Mesa, the third was on a Buenos Aires street in Hemet. This takes a lot of explainin’, but it’s the truth. Geeez, is it too bloody much to expect Christians and other citizens to get their heads out of their arses and consider the world around them and who is doing what?

      • I have a dear friend who had a single federal crime charged against her in a 216 word sentence.

    That’s because they are made for dumbed down, SMART phone users, who are of low social IQ beyond pop culture banalities. But what do I know, I’m just a tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist.

  4. Another tool of the unholy goat worshipers that have been stealing from the great American taxpayer since 12/21/1913 when the treasonous Woodrow Wilson gave them the keys.
    End the Fed and all zentral bankz.
    Sacrifice the old goat(s).
    Silver stakes required.
