” Whoever fights monsters must ensure that in the process he does not become a beast.” Friedrich Nietzsche
We’re not handling a government that exists to serve its individuals, safeguard their liberties and ensure their joy.
Rather, we are the regrettable victims of the wicked machinations of a make-works program performed on an impressive scale whose only function is to keep the powers-that-be permanently (and successfully) utilized.
Case in point: the FBI.
The government’s henchmen have become the personification of how power, when obtained, can be so quickly damaged and abused. Certainly, far from being tough on crime, FBI representatives are also amongst the country’s most well-known crooks.
Whether the FBI is planting undercover agents in churches, synagogues and mosques; issuing phony emergency situation letters to get to Americans’ phone records; utilizing intimidation techniquesto silence Americans who are vital of the federal government, or encouraging impressionable individuals to outline acts of horrorand then alluring them, the overall impression of the country’s secret police is that of a well-dressed hooligan, bending its muscles and doing the boss’ dirty work.
Plainly, this is not a government firm that appears to comprehend, let alone respect, the limits of the Constitution.
Certainly, this very same federal government company has a pattern and practice of entrapmentthat involves targeting vulnerable individuals, feeding them with the propaganda, knowledge and weapons planned to turn them into terrorists, and after that arresting them as part of an elaborately orchestrated counterterrorism sting.
Generally, it works like this: in order to justify their crime-fighting superpowers, the FBI produces wrongdoers by targeting vulnerable people and feeding them anti-government propaganda; then, undercover agents and informants gear up the targeted individuals with the training and resources to challenge what they have actually been indoctrinated into thinking is federal government corruption; and lastly, the FBI detains the targeted individuals for engaging in anti-government, terrorist activities.
This is what passes for the federal government’s perverse idea of being difficult on criminal activity.
For example, undercover FBI agents pretending to be associated with ISIS have actually been accused of looking for online and befriending a 16-year-old with brain development concerns, encouraging him to covertly send them small cash donations in the kind of gift cards, and then the minute Mateo Ventura, turned 18, apprehending him for offering financial backing to an Islamic terrorist group.
If founded guilty, the teenager could invest up to 10 years in jail.
Yet as The Interceptdiscusses,”the only’terrorist’he is implicated of ever touching with was an undercover FBI representative who befriended him online as a 16-year-old … This law enforcement technique has actually been criticized by national security researchers who have inspected the FBI’s role in producing terrorism cases using vulnerable people who would have been not able to dedicate crimes without extended government assistance and encouragement … the Ventura case may suggest that authorities are still available to conjuring terrorists where none existed.”In another occurrence, the FBI used an undercover agent/informant to look for and groom an impressionable boy, cultivating his relationship, getting his compassion, stoking his outrage over oppressions committed by the U.S. federal government, then getting his helpto
blow up the Herald Square train station. In spite of the fact that Shahawar Matin Siraj eventually refused to plant a bomb at the train station, he was detained for conspiring to do so at the advising of his FBI informant and utilized to boost the government’s track record in foiling terrorist plots. Of course, no reference was made from the part the federal government played in fabricating the plot, recruiting a potential bomber, and setting him up to take the fall. These are Machiavellian tactics with significant repercussions for every single sector of the population, no matter what one’s political leanings, but it is particularly harmful for anyone whose views might in any method be identified as anti-government. As Rozina Ali composes for The New York Times Publication, “The federal government’s approach to counterterrorism wears down constitutional securities for everyone, by blurring the lines between speech and action and by expanding the scope of who is classified as a danger.”For example, it was reported that the FBI had actually been privately performing an entrapment scheme in which it used a front company, ANOM, to sell supposedly hack-proofphones to organized crime syndicates and then utilized those phones to spy on them as they planned illegal drug deliveries, plotted robberies and put out contracts for killings utilizing those boobytrapped phones. All told, the FBI intercepted 27 million messages over the course
of 18 months. What this implies is that the FBI was also illegally spying on individuals using those encrypted phones who may not have been involved in any criminal activity whatsoever. Even reading a newspaper article is now enough to get you flagged for surveillance by the FBI. The company served a subpoena on USA Today/ Gannett to offer the internet addresses and smart phone information for everybody who checked out
a newspaper article online on a specific day and time about the lethal shooting of FBI representatives. This is the threat of permitting the government to perform prevalent surveillance, sting and entrapment operations utilizing dubious techniques that avoid the guideline of law:”we the
people”become suspects and prospective crooks, while government agents, empowered to combat crime utilizing all means at their disposal, end up being identical from the corrupt forces they look for to overcome.
To go after terrorists, they end up being terrorists. To pursue drug smugglers, they end up being drug smugglers. To go after thieves, they become burglars. For instance, when the FBI robbed a California company that was suspected of letting drug dealerships anonymously stow away weapons, drugs and cash in its personal vaults, representatives seized the contents of all the safety deposit boxes and filed forfeit movements to keep the contents, which include millions of dollars ‘worth of valuables owned by people not accused of any crime whatsoever. It’s difficult to state whether we’re handling a kleptocracy( a federal government ruled by thieves), a kakistocracy( a government run by unprincipled profession politicians, corporations and thieves that caters the worst vices
in our nature and has little regard for the rights of American
citizens), or if we have actually gone straight to an idiocracy.
This certainly isn’t a constitutional democracy, nevertheless. Some days, it feels like the FBI is running its own crime distribute total with mob guideline and mafia-style justice. In addition to creating particular crimes in order to then “solve” them, the FBI likewise provides particular informants approval to break the law ,”including whatever from buying and offering controlled substances to bribing federal government officials and outlining burglaries,”in exchange for their cooperation on other fronts. USA Today price quotes that representatives have actually licensed wrongdoers to participate in as many as 15 crimes a day(5600 criminal offenses a year). A few of these informants are getting paid huge sums: one particularly unpleasant fellow, later apprehended for attempting to runover a policeman, was in fact paid$85,000 for his help laying the trap for an entrapment plan. In a sensational development reported by The Washington Post, a probe into misconduct by an FBI representative led to
the release of at least a lots founded guilty drug dealerships from prison. In
addition to procedural misconduct, trespassing, allowing criminal activity, and damaging private property, the FBI’s shopping list of
criminal activities versus the American people includes surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation techniques, and harassment. For instance, the Associated Press lodged a complaint with the Dept. of Justice after finding out that FBI representatives developed a fake AP newspaper article and emailed it, together with a clickable link, to a bomb hazard suspect in order to implant tracking technology onto his computer and recognize his place.
Lambasting the company, AP lawyer Karen Kaiser railed,”The FBI might have intended this incorrect story as a trap for only one person. Nevertheless, the individual could quickly have actually reposted this story to socials media, dispersing to thousands of people, under our name, what was essentially a piece of federal government disinformation.”Then again, to those acquainted with COINTELPRO, an FBI program developed to”interfere with, misdirect, discredit, and neutralize”groups and people the government thinks about
politically objectionable, it must comeas no surprise that the agency has mastered the art of federal government disinformation. The FBI has been particularly slammed in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks for targeting susceptible people and not just enticing them into phony terror plots but really equipping them with the company, money, weapons and motivation to carry out the plots– entrapment– and then imprisoning them for
their so-called terrorist outlining. This is what the FBI characterizes as”forward leaning– preventative– prosecutions.”The FBI has likewise repeatedly sought to broaden its invasive hacking powers to permit agents to hack into any computer, throughout the world. Suffice it to state that when and
if a real history of the FBI is ever composed, it will not just track the rise of the American authorities state however it will also chart the decrease of freedom in America: how a country that as soon as complied with the guideline of law and held the federal government responsible for its actions has actually progressively degenerated into a police state where justice is one-sided, a business elite runs the show, representative government is a mockery, authorities are extensions of the military, monitoring is widespread, personal privacy is extinct, and the law is bit more than a tool for the federal government to browbeat individuals into compliance. This is how tyranny increases and flexibility falls. The powers-that-be are not acting in our best interests. Almost every tyrannybeing committed by the U.S. federal government against thecitizenry– supposedly to keep us safe and the country protected– has happened as an outcome of some hazard made in one method or another by our own federal government. Think about it. Cyberwarfare. Terrorism. Bio-chemical attacks. The nuclear arms race. Monitoring.
The drug wars. Domestic extremism. The COVID-19 pandemic. In almost every instance, the U.S. federal government(typically spearheaded by the FBI) has in its common Machiavellian style sown the seeds of terror locally and globally in order to expand its own totalitarian powers. Consider that this really same federal government has actually taken every bit of innovation sold to us as remaining in our benefits– GPS gadgets, surveillance,nonlethal weapons, etc– and utilized it against us, to track, control and trap us. Are you understanding yet? The United States federal government isn’t safeguarding us from threats to our flexibilities. The US government is producing the risks to our freedoms. It is, as I make clear in my book Battleground America: The War on the American People and in its imaginary counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, the source of the hazards to our freedoms.
