What the Michigan kidnap plot reveals about the FBI, the deep state, and the correlation of forces.
While the political rhetoric in our nation may at times be divisive I am encouraged by the united front our law enforcement community has displayed in response to this indescribable act of terror.
That was Michigan attorney general Dana Nessel, after the arrest of Brian Higgins, the 14th person to be charged in the plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Michiganders might expect an act of terror to involve the murder of innocents, such as the 14 slain by Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik five years ago in San Bernardino. In the Michigan case, nobody was killed and no shots fired, yet 14 men are now charged with providing material support for a terrorist act.
As Fox News Detroit reports, federal authorities were able to stop the plot using secret informants who sometimes wore wires, and informants and undercover agents embedded themselves in the groups and secretly recorded what they saw and heard. According to the FBI, one of the kidnappers said Whitmer has no checks and balances at all. She has uncontrolled power right now. All good things must come to an end.
The FBI-generated indictment in Michigan, has all the earmarks of what has become that corrupt agencys standard operating procedure, explains Angelo Codevilla, who spent eight years supervising intelligence agencies for the Senate Intelligence Committee. The FBIs method is to place agents among the target group, stoke their sentiments, and lead them to say or do something that could be characterized as a crime, then arrest them and claim credit for foiling a plot. In intelligence lingo, this is provocation, but in legal terms, its entrapment.
As Codevilla recalls, the FBI once performed dangerous work investigating the Communist Party, but the agency is now a bunch of lazy bureaucrats eager to serve the ruling class prejudices and limiting its vision to politically correct profiles. Under the previous president, the profile of a terrorist was not an Islamic jihadist such as Maj. Nidal Hassan, who murdered 13 and wounded more than 40 at Ford Hood in 2009.
For POTUS 44, the profile was those who distrust the federal government and value their liberty, faith and constitutional rights. In Michigan, as Codevilla notes, the FBI monitored social media for excess concern for liberty. Up to that time, no crime could be alleged, only what the FBI considered a bad attitude. The FBI now claims credit for uncovering a terrorist plot, and for Gov. Whitmer it was all about Trump.
Hate groups heard the presidents words not as a rebuke, but as a rallying cry, proclaimed Whitmer after the arrests. When our leaders speak, their words matter. They carry weight. When our leaders meet, encourage or fraternize with domestic terrorists, they legitimize their actions and they are complicit. When they stoke and contribute to hate speech, they are complicit. In similar style, Dana Nessel linked the political rhetoric in our nation to this indescribable act of terror.
As Michiganders might note, groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter have been terrorizing with violence, arson and murder. Witness the killing of Aaron Danielson in Portland, David Dorn in St. Louis, and the ambush shooting of two police officers in Los Angeles. If the FBI has informers and secret agents embedded in these groups, they have failed to prevent their acts of murder and launched few high-profile prosecutions in the style of Michigan.
According to Codevilla, the essence of the trial will be the role of the FBI infiltrator in moving the men from mere talk to allegedly criminal action. When was the infiltrators recording device turned on and off, and how do the intermissions and any additions suggest a truly autonomous plot?
Their lawyers are sure to claim they were victims of entrapment, Codevilla contends. If the case comes to trial, I doubt a jury will convict them. The jury will have to decide whether the FBI was protecting society from sociopaths or whether it is itself sociopathic. To all but the willfully blind, some realities are now clear.
The upper reaches of the FBI ran covert operations against candidate Trump and spearheaded a coup attempt against President Trump. To date, only FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith has been charged, for altering a document.
Current FBI boss Christopher Wray denied any spying on Trump and has been slow-walking documents in the case of Gen. Michael Flynn. Trumps national security advisor was entrapped by the FBI in classic style and remains in legal jeopardy despite dismissal of his case by the DOJ, which was also involved in the coup attempt against President Trump. Meanwhile, as the Michigan case plays out, recall how the FBI handled soldier of Allah Nidal Hasan.
The FBI had Hasans communications to master terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, but someone in the FBIs Washington office dropped the surveillance. No FBI boss or secret infiltrator stopped the terrorist from committing mass murder. For the president formerly known as Barry Soetoro, Hasans act was only workplace violence, not even gun violence.
Hasan was sentenced to death in 2013 but at this writing remains alive, an eager supporter of Islamic terrorism. The eleventh anniversary of the Muslims indescribable act of terror comes two days after the November 3 election. As President Trump says, well have to see what happens.
Under the previous president, the profile of a terrorist was not an Islamic jihadist such as Maj. Nidal Hassan, who murdered 13 and wounded more than 40 at Ford Hood in 2009.”
And he is still alive and kicking instead of just hanging around.
Perhaps not indescribable, but I've no problem prosecuting it as terror. The point, though, is that innumerable acts of terror have occured across the nation. Organized by BLM, Antifa and their fellow travelers. Prosecutions of the organizers, crickets. Prosecuting for the destruction of statues is excelent, but misses the larger point.
How many FIBs have FR accounts?
How many are setting traps for Freepers?
I’d say, “May God protect the FBI,” but that is probably a terrorist threat, God being the Ultimate Power and all.
They were training with a Dodge/Chrysler PT Cruiser. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3895466/posts
Does the FBI really think anyone would believe they going to abduct her while driving around a junkyard?
The FBI has been corrupt for about as long as I have been alive, They should have been abolished years ago, now they should all be thrown in GITMO.
The Art Of Hoax.
Good stuff. Conservatives used to unquestioningly trust the agencies and bureaucracies of the CIA, FBI and military.
Now the scales have fallen from their eyes, they find these agencies can be as corrupt and viciously political as any in Washington DC - with much more power as well.
It is pretty clear to me, being totally disconnected from DC and on the outside looking in, there is clear coordination behind the scenes in DC. It is clear to me they have the FBI by the nuts and are pulling hard. The American people need to know the truth about this. A bureaucratic purge is essential to get our country back. May God help Trump get re-elected and help him to shine a very bright light on these people for all to know and see. Because they play on lies, deceit and injustice, they are evil incarnate. May God soon rain down his divine justice on them.
Seems to me the leaders of the plot should be sent to Gitmo and fired from the FBI.
The reframing of the leftists as white Supremists turn this from a entrapment scheme to sedition from within.
Time to bury the dead fish on the counter that is the FBI. It stinks to high heaven.
In the early 1970's the rule of thumb was the person in your group, who was advocating for the most extreme, illegal operations, was probably the FBI informant.
The FBI is become evil. The enforcement arm of deep DC. Enemies of USConstitution and We-The-People.
I’m pretty certain the FBI has more agents implanted in white militias than they have in BLM, Antifa, LaRaza and militant mosques... combined. Just my guess.
