The FBI’s Attack on the Capitol

Thursday, June 17th, 2021

Fake Insurrections Need Fake Insurrectionists

On January the 6th, 2021, I published a post on the events in the Capitol. In my opinion, there was all the evidence in the world that the events of the day were being stage-managed by somebody as the means by which to set up MAGA/Conservatives.  To the extent that was the case, we now may conclude that among the people/institutions stage-managing the attack were the FBI.  The FBI had many confidential informants and probably agents who to varying degrees participated in the event, and may have helped to organize it.  Indeed, it’s increasingly clear that many of the so-called “insurrectionists” who fomented and incited the worst of the behavior at or in the Capitol were role-players.  All of this is being revealed by work being done by Darren Beattie at Revolver.News and reported on Tucker Carlson earlier this week. Here’s a clip from Carlson’s show:

The FBI was likely in on it. The FBI has been involved in other things too. We now know the FBI was in on the attack in Dallas in 2015.  As time goes on, we’re finding that this is the M.O. of the FBI more broadly.  Yesterday, Sundance over at TheConservativeTreehouse, rightly let loose with a criticism of the desire some have expressed for a “commission” to investigate all of this. The post is correct: We have lost our minds if we expect these people to police themselves.  A commission won’t do it. When has a commission ever revealed anything useful?  The Warren Commission?  The 9/11 Commission?  Even the Base Realignment and Closure Commission was intended to give politicians a measure of political cover.  The worst part in this case is, as Sundance points out:

“The Legislative Branch of the federal government is part of the Intelligence Community corruption.  The oversight “gang of eight” (pictured above), are enablers and participants in the corrupt endeavors that Carlson wants them to investigate.”

“The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) led by Chairman Adam Schiff, and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) led by Chairman Mark Warner, are part of the institutional corruption.  This is the problem, the core issue in the background, that too few people are recognizing as they begin to see the corruption within the intelligence community.  The legislative branch and the executive branch are working together; there is NO functioning oversight.”

This is the correct understanding of the problem we face. There is no chance to reform any of this with the current crowd in power, or, I would argue, even with the current “opposition.” Most of these people, if not all of them, are in on the plot.  This gets to the real nub of the issue.  If you wonder why they hated Trump so much, and why at any cost, he needed to go, it’s this: He wasn’t on the team.  He wasn’t on the payroll of the DeepState.  He’s not a member of the UniParty. Virtually everything elected Republicans have done since he won the nomination in 2016 had been designed to undermine him and sabotage him.  Everything the Democrats and the media have done since has been calculated likewise to destroy him. The response to COVID-19? That too was part of the playbook.

If you get to the bottom of January 6th, you get to a set of people.  If you get to the bottom of the ElectionCoup of 2020, you get to the same core set of people.  If you get to the bottom of COVID-19/SARS-CoV2, you get to the same core of people. ObamaGate/SpyGate? Same people. ImpeachmentHoax? Same people. No matter how far down into the manure-pile you dig, you always get to the same core of people.  This isn’t coincidental.

We’re under attack by deeply anti-American elements operating inside the American government with the full knowledge/cooperation of people at the tops of all branches of government.  Sundance rightly pointed out the legislative and executive branches, but it’s pretty clear to me given all we’ve seen with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and the behaviors of Chief Justice John Roberts in mal-administering the FISC that the judiciary is also mostly compromised.  They don’t care about your civil liberties, any notion of constitutional legitimacy, or any mechanism of the law in general except when they can exploit it to their virulently despicable purposes.  To make all of it more clear to you, so that you might finally understand what they’re willing to do, consider the reporting of WesternJournal.com in which they explain that the Biden Administration is now urging Americans to report on supposedly “radicalized” friends and family.

The Patriot Act and FISA are being used primarily against the American people.  Just as civil libertarians warned at the time of their original enactments and subsequent reauthorizations, these have become the weapon of the vast machinery of state against the American people.

This is not a game, and there’s no avoiding it. The time for choosing is coming. For all of us.

The Next School Shooter

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

It’s coming.  You know it, and I know it.  Every rational person knows it.  Somewhere in our nation, one or more people are preparing to go on a shooting rampage, and one of them may intend your child as a target.  That shooter-in-waiting is already armed, already possesses the means to carry out the intended attack.  It’s too late to talk about banning guns, bullets, gas masks or backpacks.  The thug is already primed, and all that is now needed is for the fuse to be lit.  Perhaps the death of a relative will be the trigger. Maybe it will be something in our highly polarized political environment that will ignite this rampage.  There’s no way to know where the shooter will appear, but there’s no doubt that the shooter is waiting, and while we bicker about banning guns or ammunition or anything else, and while we talk about “mental health issues,” we are failing our children in a sickeningly fundamental way:  We’ve shirked our first responsibility as parents to defend our children by leaving them defenseless in the face of monsters.  We cannot pretend that we can intercept these shooters by banning their implements, and we must face the fact that the only way to protect our children is to rise in their defense.

When you deliver your child to the school in the morning, or watch them load onto the school bus, you’ve effectively discharged your responsibility; everything the school does with your child is a matter of the authority with which you vested them when you placed the school in loco parentis.  You’ve effectively given the school temporary custody, presumably for the purposes of education.  At the same time, our federal government has so thoroughly nationalized our schools that we have largely prohibited the faculty and administration of our schools from participating in the defense of our children.  Except for licensed law enforcement officers, there’s nobody who can legally possess a gun on our schools’ grounds.  When it is suggested that we ought to increase security at our schools, and that the faculty and administration of our schools ought to be included in that defense, it is said that teachers cannot be armed because they cannot be trusted to refrain from a shooting rampage of their own should a child or children get out of hand.  In essence, we are told that teachers are a psychologically unbalanced lot, not to be trusted with guns.

This notion is always baffling to me, particularly when uttered by actual parents of minor children.  Are we to understand that teachers and coaches and principals may not be entrusted with a firearm, but that they are to be trusted to act in loco parentis? We trust them to shape the minds of our children, but we cannot trust them to defend our kids?  If an actual parent believes this, then there are only two rational options: 1.) Immediately withdraw your children from that dangerous school, or 2.) Reconsider your qualifications as a suitable parent for your children.  It is self-evident that if a teacher or administrator is insufficiently trustworthy to possess and carry a firearm, they have no business whatever acting in place of me with respect to my child(ren.)   If I can’t trust somebody with a gun, I certainly won’t trust them to instruct or oversee my kid(s.)

Bear all of this in mind when presented with the litany of excuses as to why we can’t or mustn’t arm non-police officers in our schools.  Remember that the thug is already out there, waiting for the timer to go off, or otherwise be “triggered” on his way.  The shooter is already armed.  The shooter already has ammunition.  You can ban guns and think you’ll discover him by psychological intervention, but you’re only kidding yourself, or permitting yourself to be misled.  The only place you can approximately guarantee the safety of your child(ren) is at home, but even there, it’s not guaranteed.  That said, you are in a position to defend your child(ren) in a way that is not possible in a conventional school environment.

It’s impossible to stress this point too thoroughly.  We must defend our children, but it must be an active defense, rather than an exercise in apprehension of villains and recovery of bodies.  Our teachers, administrators, coaches, and security must be armed and able to repel attackers.  They must be trained.  If we have teachers who cannot be trusted with a firearm, they should not be trusted with our children.  That next school shooter is out there.  It’s not possible to stop the shooter by banning anything.  The shooter is likely already armed.  The question parents must answer is this:  If you know the shooter is out there, though you can’t know his location, identity, or motive in advance, how do you defend your children?  Why are you sending your children to be safeguarded by people who are unable and/or unwilling to protect them?  Why are you putting your children in the midst of people with whom you would would not trust a gun?  The answer is an active defense.  It must be.

There will always be killers among us.  We can’t stop them all, and we can’t always intervene before they’re able to inflict casualties, but the only way we might is to present an unambiguous, active defensive curtain around our children, with trained, rational adults empowered to provide that defense.  Everything else is political cowardice.  It’s time, with all the evidence before us, for parents to insist that there be an active defense, or to withdraw their children from these schools.  What do you have that you value more?  On which political issue are your efforts better spent?  It’s simple: We must insist that our schools be empowered to mount an active defense against violent assailants.  If you sincerely wish to protect your children from the next school shooter, it’s too late to talk about bans.  That shooter is already armed, perhaps casing the target, or merely awaiting a psychological trigger; your child(ren.)  Only an active defense offers any hope.

 

Editor’s Note: It’s despicable that while the Parkland Florida shooter was preparing to commit his crime, the FBI, which had been notified of a youtuber of the same name threatening to be a professional school shooter, did only a cursory investigation, apparently too busy chasing phantom “Trump-Russian Collusion,” as directed by their senior leadership in Washington DC.  If only the FBI field agents had been able to conduct a more thorough investigation, perhaps the outcome would have been different.
