Random Thoughts of the Day
There was a time long ago where some of the women & men I most admired worked for the FBI. To me, they were the ultimate good guys, combating organized crime, fighting terrorism, and hunting down kidnappers, among other important duties. Maybe I was deluding myself, but it seems the whole foundation of the FBI has become corrupted lately, where they now act as nothing more than thug agents protecting the Ruling Class and taking down law-abiding Americans who don’t have the right political beliefs.
How did it get this way? The same way almost everything in government gets screwed up — politics and mainstream media. Think about what it takes to become an FBI agent. You have to finish near the top of your classes, both physically and academically, followed by a distinguished record in the military and/or local law enforcement. That’s just to even be considered as an FBI agent. You often need political connections on top of that, and you must pass a rigorous background check sure to weed out anyone with libertarian or anti-government leanings. In short, you have to be extremely dedicated to the government and your law-enforcement career, almost obsessively.
The President controls the Attorney General office, which controls the FBI, so naturally politics ripples through the chain of command. So when FBI agents are asked to do something morally questionable, and they’ve dedicated most of their waking lives to their careers, are they really going to want to defy authority? One challenge to the FBI Director or any other of your superiors could mean an instant end of their careers, or at least demotion to some unglamorous desk position. So they go along with it, often providing justifications not based on reality. The media adds to this pressure since they put heat on them to go after political undesirables like the Trump White House, the January 6th “insurrectionists,” or parents standing up to Covid tyranny.
If you want to see a perfect illustration of exactly how politics and the media can push the FBI to destroy a man’s life, I suggest watching the Netflix series Manhunt: Deadly Games, which will only be on Netflix until Dec. 6th. It covers the Olympic Centennial Park bombing and shows how Richard Jewell was ruthlessly crushed and had his life ruined by “journalists” who had no interest in waiting for the truth, along with FBI agents who compromised all their integrity to satisfy FBI Director Louis Freeh, Atty General Janet Reno, and the Clinton White House. It should have been a valuable lesson, but judging by what the FBI has become lately, they seem to have made it into textbook operating procedure.
