In 20111, a group of Muslim men who became known as the “Newburgh Four” were convicted of plotting to blow up some Synagogues in New York and shoot down National Guard planes. It was a shocking plan, but sadly not all that surprising in the post-9/11 world.
Last month, however, a federal judge in New York ordered them to be granted a compassionate early release after reviewing the FBI’s case that led to the men’s arrests. She described the men as “hapless, easily manipulated and penurious petty criminals,” saying that the real “villain” in the case was the paid FBI informant who lured them into the plot. She also described the FBI and the United States government as “the real coconspirator” in the case. …
Whitmer kidnapping by “white supremacists:”:
This is also not the first time we’ve heard about the FBI’s paid informants and even their agents being up to no good. You probably recall the alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. The more that case came under scrutiny, the more obvious it became that there were more FBI informants (and at least one undercover agent) involved in the plot than actual conspirators. And it was the FBI who originally recruited the three other men and suggested the plan. They even supplied the fake “bomb” that was supposed to be used. In the end, it proved almost impossible to convict them.
FBI ran the Proud Boys:
Then there was yet another case of the FBI investigating “domestic terror organizations.” But we later learned that there were more FBI agents and informants in the group of Proud Boys they were investigating than actual Proud Boys. The Bureau has been investigating “radical traditional Catholics” and parents running for seats on local school boards.
Something deeply wrong with the FBI:
And don’t even get me started on how they have twisted and thwarted the investigations into Hunter Biden and his father. …
For a judge to refer to FBI informants as “villains” doesn’t sound like hyperbole given everything else we’ve learned. That tag could probably be applied to some of their agents and most of the top leadership at the Bureau these days.
But what’s to be done about it? How do you investigate potential lawlessness inside what was supposed to be our premiere law enforcement agency? And even if you can prove it, what can you do about it when the current Justice Department will flatly refuse to prosecute anyone who is in any way associated with the Bidens, the Clintons, or the Obamas?
The system clearly appears to be broken, but it’s broken in a way that serves the purposes of the permanent power structure in the Swamp. And they won’t let go unless they are eventually dragged out kicking and screaming.
At what point does this qualify as a dictatorship?
