  • WHAT’S GOING ON? Governor DeSantis Ignores Good Candidates – Picks Controversial Sheriff in Same County as Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Trial

    Florida is livid. They want to know why Governor DeSantis passed up good candidates to pick a controversial candidate for Sheriff in their county. The local St. Lucie press reported on the move this week. Gov. Ron DeSantis’ appointment of Lt. Keith Pearson to be sheriff after the abrupt resignation of longtime Sheriff Ken Mascara shocked local Republican leaders, who asked DeSantis to reconsider the decision. DeSantis, a Republican, on Friday tapped Pearson the same day Mascara, a Democrat in his sixth term, notified the governor about his sudden retirement. In a letter Mascara released Friday afternoon to the public,...

    Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La) says that "at least 200 FBI agents dressed as Trump supporters were in the crowd on January 6, 2021. The FBI's involvement was deep, not just on January 6, but on the days and weeks and months prior. There was no sign that they attempted to mitigate or defuse the situation. What was their objective?" Former 3rd Special Forces Group soldier and US government contractor Jeffrey McKellop said he "was able to identify numerous government informants and agitators in the January 6 crowd. How do I know this? Because I used to do the same thing...

    Last night, I watched a documentary about the Gestapo. It occurred to me that it used the same tactics as the bumbling joke that currently occupies the Bully Pulpit and his minions. I did some research to substantiate my thoughts. History The Geheime Staatspolizei, abbreviated Gestapo, was the official secret police of Nazi Germany. It was created by Hermann Göring in 1933 by combining various political police agencies of Prussia into one organization. On April 20, 1934, oversight passed to Heinrich Himmler, the head of the Schutzstaffel (the SS, originally Hitler’s personal body guard), who was also appointed chief of...

    A new report just released by the House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government has offered shocking new insights into the full extent of the FBI’s efforts to use government power and resources to target, intimidate, and harass Catholics, pro-life activists, and other members of the religious community. The December 4 report found, among other disturbing revelations, that the FBI “abused its counterterrorism tools to target Catholic Americans as potential domestic terrorists” when agency operatives in Richmond, Virginia, circulated a memo designating so-called “radical-traditionalist Catholic[s]” as potential “racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists.” “The Committee and Select Subcommittee...

    The indictment against Hunter Biden filed in the US Court for the Central District of California this week charges him with evading $1.4 million in taxes owed to the federal government for the years 2016 through 2019. Instead of paying his taxes during these years, he spent $683,000 on prostitutes, $397,000 on clothing, $309,000 on tuition, $237,000 on health & beauty products, $189,000 on porn, $72,000 on rehab, $24,000 on entertainment, $24,000 on sports, $237,000 on miscellaneous, and withdrew $1.6 million in cash from ATMs. Hunter Biden blamed Donald Trump for his troubles, saying "Trump's Russian-aided theft of the 2016...

    An FBI raid on private safe deposit boxes has triggered a significant legal battle over civil asset forfeiture and the lengths to which federal authorities can use the practice, which has often been referred to as “Policing for Profit.”The outcome of the court proceedings could turn this into a landmark case that helps to further define the parameters in which federal law enforcement can use the controversial procedure.FBI agents cataloged Cartier bracelets, Rolex watches and stacks of cash as they combed through safe deposit boxes seized from a Beverly Hills business accused of money laundering.

    After 9/11, leftist journalists passionately exposed the New York City Police Department doing surveillance of mosques to try and prevent violent Muslim extremism. By contrast, they largely yawned when it was leaked in February that the FBI’s office in Richmond, Virginia discussed surveilling local Catholic churches to root out potential violent extremism from the “radical Catholics.” The Biden administration loves the narrative that white conservatives and “Christian nationalists” are the biggest domestic terrorism threat. The FBI’s Richmond office wrote an internal memo, titled "Interest of Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical-Traditionalist Catholic Ideology Almost Certainly Presents New Mitigation...

    Americans are losing trust and confidence in the FBI and this directly impacts national security. A staggering 63 percent view the bureau negatively -- and the reasons are hidden in plain sight. Over the past few years, valid criticisms have been leveled at the partisan decision-making within upper echelons of FBI leadership. Dating back to the 2016 Trump-Russia sham investigation, heavy-handed over-charging of Trump campaign surrogates, blatantly uneven treatment of right-wing and left-wing protesters and rioters, labeling angry parents speaking out at school board meetings as "domestic terror" concerns, aiding Big Tech’s 2020 election suppression of information, seeming disinterest in...

    Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) drew attention at a fiery congressional hearing on Tuesday when he pressed FBI Director Christopher Wray on the agency's alleged warrantless surveillance of the American people. Lee blasted Wray over the FBI's conduct regarding its searches, even suggesting he had no regard for the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution. "FBI and other agencies searched Americans' communications over 200,000 times, only 16 of which were evidence of the crime that returned information," Lee said at the beginning of his question pertaining to searches on American citizens. "Were the three related batch queries consisting of over 23,000...

    Wray opting for misdirection instead of transparency suggests he knows precisely what the FBI did in response to evidence implicating the Bidens in a bribery scandal: nothing.. FBI Director Christopher Wray alleged on Tuesday that he did not learn of the confidential human source’s (CHS) claim that the Ukrainian energy giant Burisma had bribed the Bidens until “much, much, much more recently than anything around 2020.” Wray’s testimony cannot be squared with earlier testimony from whistleblowers and the Pittsburgh U.S. attorney — unless those investigating Hunter Biden buried the CHS’s reporting. On Tuesday, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, drilled the FBI...

    Congressional lawmakers released an interim report Monday titled, "The FBI's Breach of Religious Freedom: The Weaponization of Law Enforcement Against Catholic Americans," providing a glimpse into the lengths the FBI has gone to cast those with conservative religious beliefs as threats apparently requiring state surveillance and "mitigation." The new report from the House Judiciary Committee and its Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government indicates the FBI: "abused its counterterrorism tools to target Catholic Americans as potential domestic terrorists"; "relied on at least one undercover agent to develop its assessment"; "proposed developing sources among the Catholic clergy and...

    FBI Director Christopher Wray delivered a full-throated defense of a powerful spy authority on Tuesday, invoking the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and warning lawmakers that a watered-down surveillance program could leave the agency paralyzed to respond to threats. “What could anybody possibly say to victims’ families if there was another attack that we could have prevented if we hadn’t given away the ability to effectively use a tool,” Wray told lawmakers on the Senate Judiciary Committee. “Because let’s not fool ourselves. That’s what’s at stake with the reauthorization,” he said. Wray escalated his rhetoric as Congress this week considers...

    FBI Director Chris Wray admitted to Sen. Josh Hawley that he has not fired anyone at the FBI’s Richmond office over the memo urging the FBI to investigate “radical traditional Catholics.” “You haven’t fired anybody,” Hawley, a Missouri Republican, said to Wray in a Senate hearing Tuesday. He pressed Wray on the FBI Richmond office’s Jan. 23 memo citing the Southern Poverty Law Center in urging an investigation of “radical, traditional Catholic hate groups.” After a whistleblower published it in February, the FBI rescinded that memo, saying it did not reach the bureau’s standards. Hawley cited a report that the...

The 77-page interim report, released by the House's Judiciary, Ways and Means, and Oversight and Accountability committees is the "third prong" of House Republicans' impeachment inquiry into President Biden.

Jim Jordan told FOX News. Jordan, R-Ohio, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, extrapolated on a report his panel released Monday on the FBI's apparent plan to monitor Catholics out of its Richmond, Virginia, office for any suspected domestic terrorism. FOX News learned earlier Monday from the House Government Weaponization Committee that the FBI interviewed both a priest and...
