I waited as long as I could to see if the judge in the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago was going to release the affidavits behind the search warrant, but they still had not. However, I find it interesting how after they have changed their narratives multiple times and only leak information they want released, it’s the DOJ who is fighting to prevent the full release. We have heard from many on the Left, if we have nothing to hide, why would we be worried about a search? If we didn’t cheat on our taxes, why worry about being audited? Well, if the DOJ and the FBI did nothing wrong, why not release all of their supporting evidence for the raid?
What is interesting is how Newsweek is now saying the raid wasn’t about any of the documents previously leaked or stated, but instead had to do with documents Trump may have related to the Russian collusion hoax. If that’s the case, what we have is the use of the FBI and the DOJ to stop the presumptive front-runner (if he were to announce running) from having information damaging to the democrats and all involved in the Russia-gate hoax. Think about that for a moment and let that sink into your mind. The current regime was so worried Trump could weaponize all of their lies, manipulation and smears they levied against him as part of his 2024 campaign and was willing to raid his home to confiscate those documents. If the leaks to Newsweek are to be believed, AG Garland’s unprecedented, unnecessary and unlawful raid was to retrieve records that are politically damaging to former President Obama, President Biden, Hillary Clinton and the upper echelon of the intelligence community, to include the FBI.
Senator Rand Paul believes the burden in on the FBI to justify the Mar-a-Lago raid to prove it was not “politically” motivated. It’s going to be hard to do if the leaks to Newsweek end up being accurate. Remember, though, we are told the FBI never takes sides, treats all parties the same and would not knowingly allow harm to come to fellow Americans through their actions or inactions, right?
Let’s shift the story and see how you feel.
USA Today’s headline, ‘They left us at the disposal of a predator’: How the FBI failed US gymnasts. 13 U.S. gymnasts (most under-aged at the time) asked the FBI for help as they were sexually assaulted by team doctor Larry Nassar, but their pleas were ignored for nearly two years. They are rightfully suing the Bureau for $130 million in compensation for pain and suffering. Add to it another story, this time from the Washington Post. The headline, Gymnasts sue FBI for $1billion over mishandling of Larry Nassar case. In this story, 90 women filed a the lawsuit (to include the 13 from the USA Today story), bringing their pain and suffering claims up to one billion dollars! The suit evokes the 1946 Federal Tort Claims Act that makes the United States liable for injuries “caused by the negligent or wrongful act or omission of any employee of the Government while acting within the scope of his office or employment.”
Still think the FBI is not above ignoring some while protecting others? Still think there isn’t anything to see here related to Donald Trump?
American philosopher Sam Harris might as well have hit his own self-destruct button on his career in a recent interview. He literally said, because Trump was such a threat, it was okay for the Left to do whatever it took to keep him out of office. His exact quote, “Taking down the New York Post’s [Hunter Biden laptop story]? That’s a Left-wing conspiracy to deny the presidency to Donald Trump. Absolutely it was. But, I think it was warranted.” He echoes the words of Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) in her concession speech where she was, and still is, determined to do whatever it takes to keep Trump out of office. Sam Harris seems okay, just this one time, pretending there is no Constitution, there is no rule of law, there is no tradition or precedent to keep them from doing what was “warranted” to keep Orange Man Bad out of office.
Add to it a dust-up with Harriet Hageman, the woman who beat the pants off of Liz Cheney. She stated she never got a message from Cheney conceding the election. Someone from Cheney’s team called her a liar saying a message was sent. Stephen Hayes, Editor/CEO of The Dispatch and an NBC News political analyst, put all of his journalistic skills to work and put out a horrible tweet about Hageman being a perpetual liar and she was doing whatever she had to to win MAGApplause. When Hageman’s team released video of the phone message, showing it was only :02 seconds with no content, he waited until the following day to apologize. He didn’t take back all of the slanderous accusations about her, just stated he now realizes she was telling the truth. The no-apology apology. Once again, this seems to be the status quo for what we are calling journalism today.
Finally, it looks as though CNN’s Brian Stelter is out of a job. His weekend show has been canceled and he is being terminated from his employment. He tried over the last few months to attempt some journalism, but it was too little too late and is now gone. We can only hope this is heard by others in media to remind them of their job to be reporters of truth, not spreaders of propaganda. But as illustrated above with Stephen Hayes, that seems like an impossible habit for them to break.
