Jo Nova includes an interesting video from Nigel Farange.
Have the Democrat-FBI cabal awakened the sleeping bear?
Nigel Farage: Many people were skeptical about the concept of a “Deep State” — they’re not any more.
” The World Is ‘Bewildered’ By The ‘Politicization Of America’s Justice System’” says Farage, and “It’s a war to save Western Civilization”, but despite that, Farage is cautiously upbeat.
I do think… the Democrats have completely overstepped the mark. … and whilst it’s a very bad thing that’s happened, I think this will play very very well for Donald Trump.
It’s a shocking day but it may well prove for all of us on the nationalist, populist cause, to be a good day.
Trumps populist message could be more potent now than it was in 2016. (Not half!)
All fingers are pointing at the FBI now
There was no FBI before 1908. But once it started, it was inevitable that the FBI was going to serve the government that feeds it. And since Big-government pays better than small government, it was also inevitable that the FBI would become a tool of Bigger-Government. Following the same trajectory, it’s just a matter of time before the FBI becomes One with Big Government and then we get Tyrannical-Government.
Monday’s raid on Mar-A-Lago is not the first time in this nation’s history that the FBI has been involved in using its law enforcement authority to benefit the political party in power. For 48 years, J. Edgar Hoover used the offices of the FBI to create political intelligence reports that were given to the president. It did not matter if you were a Republican or a Democrat; Hoover misused his power to benefit the president so that the president would ensure that the FBI expanded its scope, budget, and authority.
Congress created the FBI, and Congress has the full authority to reorganize, modify, or disband the organization. Nothing in the United States Constitution requires this nation to have an FBI. In fact, the argument could be made that the Constitution does not permit an FBI since the Tenth Amendment reserved the power to enforce the health, safety, and general welfare of the people to the states (police powers).
The Big Question is of course, can the US vote it’s way out of this and disband the FBI before the FBI becomes the fully fledged Stasi?
“We’re a Collapsing Empire”
Worth watching — Mark Dice who points out that Ron Paul said way back in 1988: It almost looks like the FBI was designed to spy on Americans who might be disagreeing with policy…”
The most dangerous power of prosecutors — is the selective choice of who to investigate.
The first major issue of prosecutorial discretion is the decision to investigate. Justice Robert Jackson (former Attorney General of the United States) called that “the most dangerous power of the prosecutor, because it enables the prosecutor to “pick people he thinks he should get rather than pick cases that need to be prosecuted.”
Irving Younger observed,” …that a prosecutors power to damage or destroy anyone he chooses to indict is virtually limitless.”
When a prosecutor focuses on a person, Jackson said, it is “not a question of discovering the commission of a crime and then looking for the man who has committed it, it is a question of picking the man and then searching the law books or putting investigators to work, to pin some offense on him“. At that point, law enforcement “becomes personal, and the real crime becomes that of being unpopular with the predominant or governing group…”
