3.) Institutional collapse: Intelligence Agencies
The liberal media was so desperate to protect Obama that they ignored one of the major stories of our lifetimes. Our once non-partisan intelligence agencies became hyper-politicized and corrupted in the 2010s. The NSA spied on countless innocent Americans. The FBI’s James Comey, CIA’s John Brennan, and DNI’s James Clapper are now persons of interest in a criminal investigation.
U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr has appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham of Connecticut to lead the investigation into how the Russia hoax got started.
Clapper, Comey and Brennan all testified under oath that spying did not occur. Their claims have been proven false. Obama administration officials Susan Rice and Samantha Power were “unmasking” the names of numerous Americans right before Trump was elected. This accelerated after he took office.
The media has never asked who gave the order to unmask these people, or what the justification was. The media will never ask these questions because they will never risk dispelling the Obama-as-saint narrative.
For the Russia narrative to take hold and for the spying to take place, warrants needed to be obtained from secret courts known as FISA courts.
Fraud unto the FISA Courts
Obtaining warrants under FISA requires those signing off on the warrants to stipulate that the evidence they are providing has been verified. Four separate FISA warrants were signed off using unverified information. We know the information was unverified because the person who supplied it told the intelligence agencies that he himself could not verify it.
When the dust settles, it is highly likely that the entire Russia imbroglio was an attempt by Obama intelligence officials to overthrow the Trump government and drive him from office.
This sounds like a farfetched plot out of some spy novel, but Attorney Durham has opened a criminal probe for a reason. This happened. The mainstream media is refusing to cover the most explosive story of our lifetimes, again for ideological reasons.
Ou intelligence agencies have done more than spy on innocent Americans. They have done more than violate civil liberties and shred the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution.
They have put American lives in danger.
Every moment spent spying on innocent Americans is a moment not spent on investigating global terrorist plots against America. Time and resources are finite. Our intelligence agencies are supposed to focus on America’s enemies.
Disliking a president is not a justification for trying to overthrow him. That happens in banana republics, not the United States.
Lying before a judge is a crime. It is a felony punishable by severe jail time. It is destructive for the nation that those sworn with keeping America safe violated their oath out of anger at their preferred candidate losing an election.
Unless those who engaged in this unmasking and lying to judges go to jail, the bond of trust between these law enforcement agencies and the people may be irreparably broken.
2.) Political violence and terrorism.
Those who praise Americans note that we solve our political disputes with ballots, not bullets. The 2010 decade iswhen that changed. The media played a vital role here. Again out of desperation and ideology, they tried to make political violence a bipartisan problem. It is not. Virtually non-existent right-wing violence is amplified while constant left-wing violence is downplayed or ignored outright.
Almost every act of political violence is caused by one of three groups: radical leftists, radical Islamists, or mentally ill crackpots. Right-wing hate movements act terribly when it comes to speech, but speech is not action. Right-wing hate groups hold protest marches. There is no violence unless leftists deliberately try to disrupt those rallies.
Charlottesville descended into violence when leftists purposely crashed a right-wing rally. This was done because the leftists knew that the right-wingers would get the blame. The media obediently complied.
The real truth is that leftists are trying to murder and harass conservatives.
Republican Congressman Steve Scalise of Louisiana was shot by a leftist who purposely wanted to murder Republicans. Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky was nearly beaten within an inch of his life. The media tried to make it out to be a dispute over leaves on the lawn. The attacker was a leftist who hated Paul’s politics.
North Carolina GOP headquarters were firebombed by a Molotov Cocktail. Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords is a Democrat, but she was also shot by a leftist.
Various leftist groups in the 2010s came about for the sole purpose of breaking down law and order. Antifa, Occupy, and Black Lives Matter are all leftist mobs.
When it is not leftists or mentally ill people, it is Islamists. The San Bernardino attack was an act of Radical Islam. The Fort Hood shooter was a radicalized Muslim, but the Obama administration categorizes his murder of 12 soldiers as an act of “workplace violence.”
The Pulse Nightclub shooter murdered 49 people on September 14, 2016.
Because Pulse is a gay nightclub, the media was determined to make this a right-wing anti-gay hate crime and proof that we needed gun control. Once the shooter was discovered to be a radicalized Muslim, the media dropped the story.
The media’s continued whitewashing political violence by leftists and Islamists is a problem, but the real problem is the violence itself.
Leftists and Islamists know they will get a free pass, so they keep doing it. Conservatives in red and blue neckties are not out shooting innocent people, blowing them up. The twin threats of radical leftism and radical Islam must not be ignored. Amplifying mythical right-wing violence to fit a desired political narrative only puts more American lives in danger.
To protect people from violence, it is vital to honestly assess who is committing the violence.
In 2019, there was a rash of anti-semitic acts in the heavily Chasidic Jewish area of Crown Heights in Brooklyn, New York. The media wants these people to be white right-wing Trump supporters, but this is not true. New York City is not a hotbed of anything Republican, much less right-wing. These attacks are being committed by blacks and Islamists, and the Democrat Party needs black and Muslim votes.
The leftist Mayor of New York City is unwilling and unable to keep Jews safe. It is also noteworthy that these are Orthodox Jews, who overwhelmingly vote Republican. Their attackers overwhelmingly vote Democrat.
If law enforcement does not stop this political violence, conservative gun owners may start taking the law into their own hands. That could lead to a bloodbath. It is vital that our government permanently end leftist and Islamist political violence before it is too late.
As for the mentally ill, both parties have spent decades ignoring them. They do not vote, and they do not have political influence on Capitol Hill. Far too many violent crimes are committed by mentally ill people, and our government seems unwilling and unable to deal with the problem.
Political violence is one of the major stories of this past decade, and it is long past time to start covering this story honestly.
