A tale of two FBIs



After being raised by a cop, I grew up with a respect for law enforcement of all kinds. While I knew cops weren’t gods and were therefore fallible, I also had respect for a tough job, one where people tend to be under a microscope. You make one mistake with a badge and it’s possibly news.

Your average factory worker doesn’t have to deal with that.

But in recent years, we’ve seen something very different from the FBI.

No, none of it is good. We saw how the FBI worked so diligently to undermine President Donald Trump, with high-ranking agents making it clear they had every intention of trying to wreck his presidency, for example.

But hey, sometimes they get it right.

The FBI said it supports “First Amendment rights” when asked to comment on a fundraising poster by the California State University, Los Angeles Students for Justice in Palestine chapter that featured a terrorist organization’s logo.

SJP at CUSLA made the Instagram post on Monday, which featured terrorist Leila Khaled and displayed the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine’s logo, which is a U.S.-designated terrorist organization.

The fundraiser is set for June 8 at the CSULA anti-Israel campus occupation.

When asked to comment on the poster, FBI Los Angeles Field Office spokeswoman Laura Eimiller told Campus Reform that the agency doesn’t confirm or deny investigations, but said that it supports First Amendment rights.

”The FBI does not confirm or deny investigations per policy. The FBI is in close contact with state and local law enforcement partners and, as we do in the normal course of business, we will share any information regarding potential threats,” Eimiller said. “We respect the rights of individuals to peacefully exercise their First Amendment rights and the FBI investigates individuals who violate federal law through violence or other criminal activity.”

You might be asking how I can call this “getting it right.”

Well, there’s nothing here that is wrong. The FBI doesn’t comment on investigations, nor should they. If they denied investigations, then the refusal to deny an investigation could be taken as confirmation that there is one.

Moreover, respecting the right to free speech is part of what FBI agents swear and oath to do. They should respect it.

None of this means they’re not investigating the event or organization, but this is ultimately the right approach. And considering they used a terrorist organization’s logo, they probably deserve a deeper look. If nothing is amiss, a discrete investigation won’t hurt anything.

But I can’t help but wonder where the FBI’s respect for free speech was when it decided to start looking at parents who were protesting their local school board. Yes, that came as a directive from the Biden administration, but we never heard the FBI tell the White House to pound sand.

“There were threats of violence.”

That’s a matter for the local authorities and always was. The use of the FBI was nothing but a way to try to intimidate people into staying at home during school board meetings.

Which is missing when you’re dealing with an organization that is clearly trying to show some degree of affiliation with a noted terrorist organization.

They didn’t respect free speech then.

They colluded with Twitter to suppress free speech.

They investigated a website and two journalists without any accusation of wrongdoing by any investigated party but because they engaged in unpopular speech.

And that doesn’t touch on the numerous instances of the FBI violating other civil rights, such as their Fourth Amendment rights.

Why, it almost seems like there are two different FBIs running around out there. One seeks to respect Americans’ civil liberties while the other is the tool of a state inching closer and closer toward tyranny.

That is, of course, unless you recognize that there’s just one FBI and they’re playing for a particular team. They’re respectful of the free speech rights of a group glorifying terrorism because those terrorists are supported by all the right people in government.

Meanwhile, they’ll hunt down every grandma who took an unguided tour of the Capitol for a whopping 10 minutes as if they’re Osama bin Laden.

Honestly, this is disgusting and FBI reform needs to be at the top of any to-do list for incoming lawmakers if we want to take them seriously. The FBI is well on its way to becoming a new Gestapo or KGB when it comes to domestic issues, and we should all be terrified of that.

Only one political party, unfortunately, is concerned at the moment, but then again, the guy with the vicious dog on the leash is usually not all that worried about the dog.

"“The FBl’s intentions are made clear by the questions it chose to put in black and white on a government document,” added Leavitt, whose group has represented the IRS whistleblowers in the Hunter Biden case as well as several FBI agents and analysts who claim that their security clearances were suspended or revoked because of their political views."

Nashville Shooter’s Manifesto Released Despite FBI Resistance



The 2023 Nashville Covenant School murders understandably received massive news coverage when they occurred. The fight over obtaining the murderer’s diary also received news attention. But when “nearly four dozen pages” of the murderer’s diary were finally released last week, the mainstream media completely ignored it. It turns out that behind the scenes, the FBI had fought hard against the diary’s release. Some Covenant School parents also opposed releasing the diary because it would force families to re-live the nightmare. The Tennessee Star’s parent company, Star News Digital Media, successfully filed two lawsuits to obtain the diary.

Five days after the release of the diary, with the exception of the New York Post, which is a national news outlet, the news coverage was limited to seven other conservative outlets such as The Daily Wire and Newsbusters.

The school murderer was transgender, and her diary reveals a suicidal left-winger who hated whites. The FBI expressed concern that the release of the diary from a transgender person could lead the public “to dismiss the attacker as mentally ill,” which would “further permeate the false narrative that the majority of attackers are mentally ill.” It worried that the diary could “potentially inflam[e] the public.”

The FBI worried that releasing the diary could have “unintended consequences for the segment of the population more vulnerable or open to conspiracy theories, which will undoubtedly abound.” Self-professed “experts,” the FBI fears, will “proffer their perspectives” in the press.

But there is a lot of important information in the diary. As is very typical of mass public shooters, the murderer was suicidal: “A terrible feeling to know I am nothing of the gender I was born of. I am the most unhappy boy alive. I wish to be dead.” She was also on the anti-anxiety drug Buspirone, whose potential side effects include “abnormal dreams, outbursts of anger, tremors, and physical weakness.”

The FBI worries that the diary will help create a link in people’s minds between mass murderers and mental illness, but suicidal people presumably have some mental health problems. Nor should the link be particularly surprising given that the Crime Prevention Research Center shows that 51% of mass public shooters in the last 25 years were actually seeing mental health care professionals before their attacks. That is 2.5 times the rate in the general public.

The FBI acknowledged that Americans want to “understand what led to such tragic events.” But the FBI argued these statements “seldom provide the answers” and the diaries and manifestos were “often misleading.” Yet the national media appears completely uninterested in why these murderers pick the targets they do and how their motivation to get media coverage is important in understanding how to stop these attacks.

The diary showed that the murderer had picked the Covenant School because it was a soft, unprotected target. Even if the national media ignored these comments, the Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake, who had access to the diary, said on the day of the attack, “There was another location that was mentioned, but because of a threat assessment by the suspect of too much security, they decided not to.” A couple of days later, Nashville Council member Robert Swope stated that the murderer “looked at” two other Nashville public schools before deciding “the security was too great to do what she wanted to do.”

While the FBI worries that many of “the offenders themselves do not fully grasp or comprehend” what they are writing, there is a logic to attacking facilities assumed to be gun-free zones, like the Covenant School, and trying to maximize the amount of media coverage that they receive. The FBI may not want to acknowledge this, and the media may not want to cover these points, but we see it consistently in these attacks.

The mass murderer wanted to get attention for the difficulties facing transgender individuals. She compared trans individuals to other groups in a way that indicates she clearly believed that transgender people didn’t have the same rights: “Disabled have rights, civil races have rights, LGBTQ have rights, gun owners have rights.” But referring to the life of transgender people, she declared: “… with no rights, anyone’s country is a s***** dictatorship.”

The news media and the FBI under the Biden administration are attempting to control the information available to Americans about a mentally troubled woman who identified as a man. The Biden administration is free to argue against linking transgender issues to mental illness or mass murder, but censoring the information is not the right approach.

‘Come Out With Your Hands Up!’...we know there's crimes in there...


Oakland Mayor Sheng Thao's home 'is raided by FBI', as progressive lawmaker faces recall over soaring crime



Oakland's embattled Mayor Sheng Thao has had her home raided by the FBI, local media have reported.

The Democrat lawmaker's home on Maiden Lane was raided around 5:30 am PT Thursday, CBS San Francisco reports.

It is unclear why the property was raided, but according to public records, it appears Thao rents the home.

'The FBI is conducting court authorized law enforcement activity on Maiden Lane. We are unable to provide additional information at this time,' the agency said on Thursday morning.

A neighbor told ABC7 News that she woke up to authorities banging on her door around 6 am.

According to a law enforcement source, this raid is just one of four locations in Oakland that will be searched by the FBI.

A picture of her home was seen surrounded by multiple unmarks, black vehicles parked on the street.

The FBI also raided the Oakland home of Andy Duong, a prominent Vietnamese businessman.

Duong and his family own Cal Waste Solutions, a recycling company that has been investigated over laundering campaign contributions to various member of the City Council including Sheng Thao, according to The Oaklandside.

Sources tell DailyMail.com that the mayor’s first official trip last year, to Vietnam, was co-sponsored by the Vietnamese American Business Association, which was formed by a member of the Duong family, leading to speculation that the FBI may be investigating allegations of influence peddling.

The raid took place around 5:30 a.m., sources said. It started when two Jeeps pulled up to the mayor’s house and several FBI agents in bullet proof vests jumped out.

They ran to the mayor’s door, announced they were FBI. Standing behind a shield, they then kicked the door in. They remained at the house for the next couple hours.

The mayor was a no show at a prescheduled press conference at 10 a.m. in San Francisco, where regional officials were on hand to support an affordable housing bond on the November ballot, sources said.

At another community event this morning in Oakland, Thao’s aide Brandon Harami was asked about the raid and said he knew nothing about it, sources said.

Earlier this week, it was revealed Thao is facing a recall election as voters complain about soaring crime in the Bay Area city.

They say her progressive, soft-on-crime policies have emboldened criminals and driven away businesses.

Thao will face a historic recall election in November amid anger over her failure to get a grip on the situation in Oakland.

The progressive Democrat lawmaker is the first mayor in the city's history to be up for recall, after a campaign to oust her gained more than 40,000 signatures.

'In just a year, Thao's incompetence and dishonesty accelerated Oakland's decline, causing longstanding businesses to close and generational families to leave,' the Oakland United to Recall Sheng Thao (OUST) campaign website stated.

Critics are also angry that she missed an opportunity to apply for a $15 million retail theft grant, fired Oakland Police chief LaRonne Armstrong, 'for no cause' without appointing a successor and lost the Oakland A's baseball team.

They also accused her of lying about calling a State of Emergency to deal with the crime wave crippling the city.

Oakland has been rocked by violent crime in recent months, including murders, which have soared from 78 in 2019 to 126 last year.

Crime overall increased by 18 percent in 2023 with property crime up 17 percent and violent crime up 21 percent.

And in the first four months of 2024, residential robberies soared by 118 percent on the same period last year.

Staggeringly, one car per every 30 residents was also stolen in 2023.

The situation has prompted several large corporations to pull out of the city, citing fears for staff safety and the crippling impact of retail theft.

On Tuesday a Florida family dropping their son off in the city for college enrollment had their rental car ransacked. The traumatized parents and their family have since fled the city and withdrawn their son from studying there.

In August one particularly disturbing video showed an innocent woman being dragged along the ground by two male muggers after trying to fight them off.

Oakland's only In-N-Out Burger restaurant in the area closed after 18 years, despite still turning a healthy profit, as customers and staff were 'unsafe' due to soaring crime rates, the business said.

The local Denny's also shut its doors, while Taco Bell refuses to allow indoor dining amid a spate of incidents.

Earlier this year, Kaiser, PG&E, Clorox and Blue Shield announced they were plowing $10million of their own cash into added security measures for their employees amid inaction from the city.

Thao's opponents blame her progressive policies for the skyrocketing crime.

Among them was a bizarre proposal which suggested life coaching could help tackle homicides and other crimes.

The scheme was suggested as part of the city's ceasefire plan which had been dwindling until Thao took office.

'You created a public safety crisis by systematically dismantling the Oakland Police Department, leading to the city's reputation as one of the most dangerous in America,' OUST wrote to the embattled mayor in a statement.

'In short, you lack the competency, credibility, judgment and ability to lead what was once a great American city.'

'Lives have been lost, property destroyed, businesses have shut down, and fear and collective trauma are daily occurrences for Oaklanders. We, the concerned citizens, therefore demand your recall for the sake of our city's future.'

The mayor has previously decried the increase in crime, stating that the uptick began in 2019 before her tenure.

A bombshell 8-year-old-secret involving Hunter and his FBI BFF’s just dropped…



Well, well, well, the FBI has been busy little bees, buzzing around to help their honey bear, Hunter Biden, avoid the hot seat. It appears this crooked and disgraced organization is pouring all their energy into this lately, and who can blame them? It seems the Biden boys are always up to no good.

This latest bombshell didn’t even come from the “Laptop From Hell.” Actually, it wasn’t in there. Instead, it’s courtesy of award-winning investigative journalist John Solomon, who obtained documents that revealed the FBI has known for about eight years now that Hunter and his partners were plotting to set up new ventures (money laundering?) in tax-friendly Liechtenstein. And we’re not talking about a million or anything chintzy like that. No. We’re talking about upwards of 120 million bucks.

As John points out, this is a secret that has been kept from the American public for eight long years.

Ten percent for the big guy?

Just the News:

The FBI learned as far back as 2016 that Hunter Biden and his partners had plotted to set up a new venture in tax-friendly Liechtenstein that would be capitalized by a whopping $120 million investment from the controversial owner of the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings, according to documents obtained by Just the News that have been kept from the American public for eight years.

The mega-deal was not referenced inside Hunter Biden’s now infamous laptop or during the 2019 impeachment proceedings involving Ukraine, but was instead chronicled in a trove of 3.39 million documents the FBI seized from Hunter Biden and his business partners during an investigation of securities fraud nearly a decade ago.

The cache of documents was recently turned over by former Hunter Biden business partner Devon Archer to the House Oversight Committee as part of its impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden’s conduct.

The new evidence shows the major investment plan was being built at the time when Hunter Biden was serving on Burisma’s board of directors and Joe Biden was still serving as Barack Obama’s vice president in charge of U.S.-Ukraine policy.

The memos state Hunter Biden was also supposed to serve on the board of the new company called Burnham Energy Security LLC, and it was going to be capitalized in 2015 by Burisma owner Nykola Zlochevsky, who at a time was trying to get out from under corruption allegations in his home country.

The Hunter Biden-connected Burnham entity was slated to get a quarter of the new venture’s net revenues without putting up any cash, according to recent testimony to Congress from one of the partners.

Zlochevsky, the Ukrainian oligarch, meanwhile was committed to “$120 Million over thirty-six (36) months to be invested in exploration and leasehold improvements” in the new venture designed to make Burisma a global energy leader, according to a prospectus for the project.

Reporter John Solomon, who is well-known for breaking numerous bombshell stories, recently joined Steve Bannon on his hit podcast “WarRoom.” Bannon, a constant target of the regime’s lawfare, understands the ramifications of Hunter’s criminal behavior. Aside from the recent distracting so-called “conviction,” Hunter seems to get away with all the really BIG stuff. Bannon and Solomon delved into this issue in even greater detail.

MJ Truth Ultra:

The FBI knew since 2016 Hunter Biden nearly scored $120 million Ukrainian deal while Joe was VP – And While Trump was Being Impeached over Ukrainian Phone Call

“It’s an extraordinary story because the FBI knew about it in 16, but when Donald Trump was being tried for Impeachment in 2019/2020, these documents were not made available to his defense…

Imagine if the American people knew that story, that Hunter Biden was poised for a $120 Million pay day. The impeachment would have been stopped in its grounds.”

• After 5 years, Just the News uncovered that the FBI learned as far back as 2016 that Hunter Biden and his partners had plotted to set up a new venture in tax-friendly Liechtenstein that would be capitalized by a whopping $120 million investment from the controversial owner of the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings,

The mega-deal was not referenced inside Hunter Biden’s now infamous laptop or during the 2019 impeachment proceedings involving Ukraine, but was instead chronicled in a trove of 3.39 million documents the FBI seized from Hunter Biden and his business partners during an investigation of securities fraud nearly a decade ago.

• The cache of documents was recently turned over by former Hunter Biden business partner Devon Archer to the House Oversight Committee as part of its impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden’s conduct.

• The new evidence shows the major investment plan was being built at the time when Hunter Biden was serving on Burisma’s board of directors and Joe Biden was still serving as Barack Obama’s vice president in charge of U.S.-Ukraine policy.

The memos state Hunter Biden was also supposed to serve on the board of the new company called Burnham Energy Security LLC, and it was going to be capitalized in 2015 by Burisma owner Nykola Zlochevsky, who at a time was trying to get out from under corruption allegations in his home country.

• Zlochevsky, the Ukrainian oligarch, meanwhile was committed to “$120 Million over thirty-six (36) months to be invested in exploration and leasehold improvements” in the new venture designed to make Burisma a global energy leader, according to a prospectus for the project.

So, the truth we’ve long suspected has finally surfaced. The FBI has been shielding Hunter and the Bidens, while Trump and his associates face a very different reality. They have to face pre-dawn, heavily armed raids, sham trials in kangaroo courts, and unjust prison sentences. Meanwhile, the Biden family roams free, seemingly getting away with treason, with FBI agents turning a blind eye. In fact, they’re actively covering it up. It must be nice to have all that Biden privilege. When all is said and done, they might be a bigger crime family than the Clintons, which is quite remarkable.

All around the same time as the fake impeachment over a call with recently elected Ukrainian leader...and a laptop EVERYONE knew was Hunter's, but Pop's went on debate stages and said it was lies, 50 supposed "Intel Leaders" claimed it was all Russian disinformation and they all KNEW it was true and Hunter's as well as all the business dealings. Suspend reality for a second and try to focus on if the laptop was DJT Jr's? The foreign business dealings and the amount of money verifiably being kicked up like the envelopes in a Sopranos episode or any other mob movie? If the sitting President had gotten away with it and been re-elected on it you know and I know he would be convicted and imprisoned for this type of charge/s. Switch back to reality...what are you going to do about it?

Yeah, that's what I thought.

FBI Wants 20 Years To Produce Records On Its Involvement W/ OKC Bombing


It’s been about nine years since Utah attorney Jesse Trentadue filed a Freedom of Information Act request for records about a CIA asset and FBI informant who helped fund the Oklahoma City bombing, as well as for records about a neo-Nazi bank-robbery gang also involved in the attack.

Tired of waiting, Trentaudue sued the FBI over the matter in February, demanding the bureau to produce the 69,375 pages of documents that it’s holding. But now, the FBI wants to take another nearly 12 years to fork over those documents to him, which means that it would take at least 20 years for the bureau to comply with his initial FOIA request.

Such a slow production rate is unacceptable, Trentadue said in a Tuesday court filing.

“The FBI proposes to process these records/documents for release to Plaintiff in monthly increments of 500 pages over a period of 11.5 years!” he said.

“If the Court accepts the FBI’s proposed snail-pace processing of these materials, Plaintiff will be close to 90-years of age when he finally receives all of them,” he said.

“He has already waited almost a decade for these documents/records, with the FBI having made no effort during the interim to produce them, and should not have to wait another 11.5 years to receive them.”

Trentadue has been suing the U.S. government for OKC bomb-related records for nearly 30 years, ever since his brother was murdered in a federal penitentiary. The complex story of how the death of Trentadue’s brother relates to the OKC bombing can be read in this Mother Jones article.

Trentadue’s latest lawsuit seeks records on FBI informant and CIA asset Roger Moore (not the James Bond actor), and the bank-robbery gang, the Aryan Republican Army, which he says was an FBI front group.

According to Trentadue’s lawsuit, Moore was an FBI informant as part of the bureau’s 1980s- and early 90s-era Operation Punchout, which was designed to identify and apprehend surplus dealers that bought and sold government property stolen from Department of Defense facilities in Utah.

Furthermore, Moore build patrol boats for use by the US Navy in the Vietnam War, as well as speedboats for the CIA, according to Aberration in the Heartland of the Real—historian Wendy Painting’s PhD thesis-turned-book about OKC bomber Tim McVeigh.

As for the Aryan Republican Army, Trentadue believes that was an FBI front group that also helped fund the bombing.

Trentadue’s Tuesday filing elaborated further on the ARA’s connection to McVeigh.

“During 1993, 1994 and 1995, a gang known as the Aryan Republican Army or “ARA” robbed banks and armored cars in the mid-west. Timothy McVeigh participated in some of those robberies and is reported to have used money obtained from these crimes to help fund the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995,” he said.

“According to Peter Langan, several members of the ARA assisted McVeigh in carrying out the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building.”

No hearings have been set yet in Trentadue’s lawsuit.

New Whistleblower Report Corroborates Charges Of FBI Retaliation



The whistleblower claims to have witnessed myriad cases of the FBI retaliating based on ‘political views, medical views, or even ethnicity.’

The House Judiciary Committee received a new whistleblower complaint Tuesday morning corroborating previous reports of political retaliation within the FBI.

On Friday, attorneys sent a complaint for an anonymous supervisory special agent (SSA) to the Justice Department inspector general and the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility. The complainant, who is a registered Democrat and has won awards as an agent for work against child trafficking, reports witnessing colleagues within the FBI experience political retribution. The whistleblower also claimed to have been retaliated against. The complaints were submitted to the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government and shared with The Federalist.

According to the disclosures, the latest whistleblower “witnessed firsthand as an SSA how the FBI’s Security Division improperly suspended or revoked employees’ security clearances whose political views, medical views, or even ethnicity were questioned by Security Division leadership.”

“The outcomes of clearance investigations and adjudications were often pre-determined by the Division’s acting Deputy Assistant Director and the acting Section Chief responsible for security clearance investigations and adjudications, who often overruled line staff and even dictated the wording of documents in the clearance process,” the disclosure read.

The special agent in question was suspended last year after serving half a decade as an SSA since 2018. Protected disclosures were particularly made against Jeffrey Veltri, the acting deputy assistant director of the FBI’s Security Division, and Dena Perkins, the acting section chief for the Security Integrity and Investigations Section.

“SSA Client quickly discovered that acting [Section Chief] Perkins and acting [Deputy Assistant Director] Veltri were often inappropriately involved in individual clearance cases throughout those cases’ time in [the Security Integrity and Investigations Section], from referrals to investigations to adjudications and appeals,” the disclosure read. “Perkins and Veltri would frequently make initial judgments about cases based on their own prejudices, then would refuse to move from their first impressions — regardless of what facts an investigation uncovered.”

The latest disclosures outline myriad cases in which the whistleblower witnessed retaliation, including the clearance investigation of Staff Operations Specialist Marcus Allen.

A Marine combat veteran who was suspended without pay for more than two years, Allen had his security clearance revoked over making protected disclosures related to FBI Director Christopher Wray’s testimony following the turmoil on Jan. 6, 2021. The FBI walked back its retaliation before the DOJ inspector general released a final report on the improper suspension, but a whistleblower protection group is calling on the agency watchdog to release the report anyway.

According to the whistleblower disclosures submitted to lawmakers, Veltri and Perkins colluded to suspend Allen’s clearance despite the agency investigator concluding his “Allegiance to the United States” was not in doubt.

“Perkins overruled the initial investigator and reassigned the case to another investigator to move forward with suspending [Staff Operations Specialist] Allen’s clearance,” the disclosure read.

As Allen waited for the Justice Department inspector general to review his case, the FBI denied requests to seek other work or accept public charity. Allen remained subject to gift rules for public officials despite no pay or public duties for more than two years.

The whistleblower behind the latest complaints made protected disclosures about superiors’ misconduct last summer and was disciplined by the end of September for his “attitude,” according to the report submitted to Congress.

Other FBI whistleblowers who’ve alleged agency retaliation include Garret O’Boyle and Steve Friend, both of whom blew the whistle on the weaponization of the agency by far-left ideologues.

O’Boyle told lawmakers the FBI moved him from the Great Plains to Washington, D.C., where he was suspended on his first day after making protected disclosures to Congress. O’Boyle said the FBI had been inappropriately designating white supremacy as a top national security threat in order to justify broad surveillance.

Friend also suffered retaliation for objections made to the FBI’s response to suspects at the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Friend told lawmakers the FBI deployed a SWAT team to arrest such an individual in the Orlando area.

“I’ve arrested over 150 violent criminals in my career, I’ve never required a SWAT team to do it,” Friend said during a recent congressional hearing.

Ex-FBI Counsel Behind Russiagate, Biden Laptop Censorship Now Part Of Left-Wing Election Network



James Baker, an ex-FBI counsel who pushed the lie that Trump was a Russian asset, is a member of a vast left-wing election network.

The former FBI general counsel who pushed Twitter to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story is now working with a left-wing election influencers’ group.


James Baker, also prominent for his role in pushing the FBI’s political persecution of former President Donald Trump for the “Russiagate” hoax, is listed as a member of the National Task Force on Election Crises. The group is a subsidiary of the left-wing Protect Democracy Project, a litigation group formed to oppose Trump’s policies, according to InfluenceWatch.

The task force pushes early and mail-in voting, claims to help prevent “cyber or other attacks by foreign adversaries or domestic disrupters,” promotes “pre-canvassing of absentee ballots,” seeks to discourage legal election challenges, and advocates for censorship of certain online speech about elections.

Working for the Regime

Baker’s key areas of expertise, according to the group’s website, are “legal and legislative issues,” “political violence and intimidation,” “foreign and cyber interference,” and “election subversion.”

Baker certainly knows about “legal issues.” While serving as the FBI’s lead counsel, he met with Michael Sussmann — who he later admitted was a “friend” — and who provided “intel” supposedly proving connections between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, a Russian company. Sussmann claimed he was acting on his own behalf, though he was later found to have been working for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

Baker should also know about “political violence and intimidation,” considering that he prompted the FBI to investigate Trump using Sussmann’s faulty information. He also told Congress Sussmann’s lie in 2018 that a server at Trump Tower was in communication with Alfa Bank. Upon finding the claim false, he failed to show any concern. Maybe “Russiagate” is also where he gets his experience with “foreign interference.”


He has plenty of experience with “cyber interference” too, considering his push to censor the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story, as revealed in the “Twitter Files.”

Baker started working at Twitter — now X — as deputy general counsel in 2020. He worked with the FBI to push the company’s censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story, which depicted shady business dealings involving now-President Joe Biden.

“I’m guessing that we are going to restrict access to this article as a violation of our Hacked Materials policy but after yesterday I don’t want to assume anything,” Baker wrote in an email on Oct. 15, 2020.

Elon Musk later fired Baker for his role in pushing regime censorship. “In light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from Twitter today,” Musk posted in 2022.

The intersection of Baker’s past with the group’s activities should be cause for concern. Perhaps this is where his final skill, “election subversion,” comes into play.


Election Meddlers

The National Task Force on Election Crises aims to “hold candidates and their attorneys accountable for knowingly pursuing bad-faith or frivolous legal challenges; continue to pursue accountability for those who committed criminal acts on and leading up to January 6th.”

The group also works to “downgrade or delete rather than label election-related disinformation,” “hand-pick or remove trending lists and up-next recommendations for election-related content,” and “inoculate against disinformation about voting options and the validity of election results.” Disinformation, of course, is left-wing censors’ favored way to describe inconvenient or counter-narrative speech.

These promises should not be considered empty. The members of this group include some of the most influential left-wing election meddlers in recent history.

Tiana Epps-Johnson, founder of the Center for Tech and Civic Life, and David Becker, a “hardcore leftist” and founder of the Center for Election Innovation and Research, are both members. CTCL and CEIR shuttled close to $420 million from Mark Zuckerberg to local elections offices in 2020, boosting Democrat turnout in the general election.

Amber McReynolds, a governor of the United States Postal Service, is also a member. In 2020, the National Vote at Home Institute — of which she was CEO at the time, and which shares leadership ties with CTCL — accessed absentee ballots and worked to shift Michigan election policy.

Tammy Patrick, CEO of programs at the National Association of Election Officials, is another member of the group. She was a senior adviser for elections at the left-wing financial powerhouse Democracy Fund, and she sits on the circle of advisors at NVAHI.

If the political connections of this group’s members do not already raise suspicions, Baker’s role should cause serious concern. His former persecution and censorship of the regime’s political opponents promise more of the same.

But wait…Mueller said the Russians were interfering on Trump’s behalf. Aren’t we supposed to ignore everything else?

C'mon...Big Mo was playing nice so he could angle for a position in the Trump administration. Barr was bad enough.

FBI Identified ‘Person of Interest’ in Capitol Pipe Bomb Case by Jan. 10, 2021


'FBI WF and USCP have identified a person of interest who may be a match to the description of the individual placing the bombs...'

(Ken Silva, Headline USA) The FBI released a new batch of records about its Capitol Hill uprising investigation on Monday, revealing that investigators identified a “person of interest” in its Jan. 5/6 pipe bombs investigation within days of the incident.

The record about the FBI’s person of interest is a Jan. 10, 2021, report that summarized the bureau’s J6 investigation up to that point. The extremely faded report is difficult to read, but it appears to state: “FBI WF and USCP have identified a person of interest who may be a match to the description of the individual placing the bombs, and continue efforts to identify through surveillance footage.”

The FBI declined to comment in response to Headline USA’s questions about what happened to the person of interest, including whether the person was cleared or is still under investigation.

“We don’t have any comment on the documents. The pipe bomb investigation remains ongoing,” an FBI spokesperson told this outlet.

The FBI has been extremely tight-lipped on its pipe bomb investigation, and most of the revealtions have come via congressional investigations or other agencies, such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Last July, for instance, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., played a video showing a passerby “miraculously” finding a pipe bomb outside of the DNC headquarters on Jan. 6, 2021.

Massie’s revelation followed an interview he and other House Judiciary Committee members conducted with former FBI official Steven D’Antuono, who oversaw the bureau’s pipe bomb investigation until he retired last November. In that interview, D’Antuono disclosed that some of the cell phone evidence from the FBI’s pipe bomb investigation was “corrupted.”

More recently, congressional investigators revealed that the “passerby” pegged by Massie was, in fact, a plainclothes Capitol Police officer.

The latest major development came in March, when the Justice Department released ATF records showing that CIA explosives technicians were part of the response to the pipe bombs placed outside the RNC and DNC headquarters.

Still, the FBI is staying silent on the matter.

“It was 900 days ago when this happened, and you said you had total confidence that you’d apprehend the subject,” Massie said a year ago, to no avail. “It’s 900 days. You need to tell us what you found.”

FBI Claims Purportedly Struggling To Crack Trump Shooter's Phone



The FBI has reportedly taken alleged Trump shooter Thomas Matthew Crooks’s phone to its lab in Quantico, Virginia, where its technicians are working to unlock it as part of the investigation into his possible motives.

But according to Fox News reporter Laura Ingraham, the FBI’s finest techies are struggling to crack the phone.

“An official is telling Fox they believe the shooter acted along. We’re also learning they can’t get into his cellphone,” Ingraham said on Sunday. “They have it at Quantico but haven’t been able to get any data out of it.”

BREAKING 🚨 Quantico reportedly cannot get into the alleged shooter’s cell phone, who they state: "Acted alone."

The FBI’s claim that it can’t crack Crooks’s phone should be treated with skepticism. The bureau has a track record of lying about such matters.

The most notorious case of the FBI claiming it couldn’t crack an encrypted phone happened in December 2015, in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting, in which two shooters killed more than a dozen victims.

At the time, the FBI claimed it couldn’t access one of the shooters’ iPhones. The bureau sought a court order to force Apple to help the FBI break the phone’s encryption.

Apple resisted the FBI’s coercsion, but the dispute was never fully litigated. It turned out, the FBI hired an Australian cybersecurity firm to hack the phone around March 2016 or shortly thereafter. The purported true story of how the FBI unlocked the phone wasn’t told until 2021.

A similar situation occurred in May 2020, when then-Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Chris Wray criticized Apple for not helping investigators who were attempting to gain access to two iPhones used by Mohammed Alshamrani, who launched a terror attack at the Pensacola Naval Air Station in Florida in December 2019.

Wray has continued his anti-encryption throughout the years. In March 2021, for example, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee that encryption was stifling his agents from investigating domestic extremism.

“Like Alshamrani, the plotters who sought to kidnap the governor of Michigan late last year used end-to-end encrypted apps to hide their communications from law enforcement. Their plot was only disrupted by well-timed human source reporting and the resulting undercover operation,” Wray said at the time.

“Subjects of our investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol siege used end-to-end encrypted communications as well.”

According to Wray and other law enforcers, tech companies should be able to build “backdoors” into their encryption that preserves privacy, while allowing for access when necessary. That, they say, strikes the proper balance between data security and national security.

However, numerous tech experts, civil libertarians, and others say that it’s impossible to build a backdoor that can’t be exploited by hackers. They also say that by banning encryption, the United States would be following in the footsteps of authoritarian countries such as China, which blocked the encrypted messaging app Signal.

“It is important to understand that any kind of back door (or front door) access for the ‘good guys’ can also be exploited by the ’bad guys,’” the pro-industry Information Technology & Innovation Foundation stated in a July 2020 report, in the midst of the Apple-Barr controversy.

“For example, key escrow systems would introduce new attack vectors that could allow attackers to gain access to encrypted information, such as by compromising the system that maintains copies of the keys.”

...and in case you hadn't put it all together, here's Matt Walsh...

Guys there’s nothing strange going on here. The 20 year old shooter had never used social media or posted a single thing on the internet, ever, and his phone cannot be accessed because it has a password which our government’s best hackers cannot bypass. That’s all. Normal stuff.

FBI Employee In Gun Background Check Unit Expressed Disappointment That Trump Lived



A Democrat staffer also wrote: ‘I don’t condone violence but please get you some shooting lessons so you don’t miss next time.’

Government employees including a Democrat congressional staffer and a purported FBI employee took to social media to express dismay that Saturday’s assassination attempt against former President Trump was unsuccessful.

After a gunman opened fire at a Pennsylvania political rally on Saturday, social media posts expressed sentiments like “don’t miss next time” and “so close.”
FBI Staffer: ‘So Close’

Jenna Howell, who is a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) employee, according to a former FBI analyst who spoke with The Federalist, took to Facebook to express apparent regret that the gunman failed to assassinate Trump.

“The memes…the memes are gold,” Howell wrote in a Facebook comment. She shared an image depicting the grim reaper attempting to pick Trump out of a claw machine captioned “AWWW SO CLOSE.”

Howell appeared to criticize social media users expressing grief and outrage over the political violence, writing, “Y’all gun-toting, 2nd Amendment-loving hillbillies better just sit down and stay quiet unless you’re gonna change your mind on gun control.”

Law enforcement has provided no official information on how Crooks obtained the firearm.

Former FBI analyst Chris Toompas told The Federalist that Howell is a former NICS Firearms Background Check Unit employee, the unit that decides whether Americans are permitted to obtain firearms. She is now assigned to the FBI’s Identity Research Department, according to Toompas.

Toompas, who said he worked with Howell before the Covid-19 pandemic, spoke with The Federalist about her history.

“The only thing leftists love to do is hate those who disagree with them, and in this instance, wish for their death,” Toompas said, adding that he was terminated from the FBI for refusing to comply with the Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

“I went to Facebook during my suspension to voice my disdain for the mandate and share my suspension story,” Toompas explained. “When I did so, [Howell] threatened to report me to the FBI for violating the FBI’s Facebook policy. The irony.”

Howell’s posts have since been removed from her Facebook page.
Congressional Staffer: ‘Get Shooting Lessons’

Jacqueline Marsaw, who was hired as a field representative by Democrat Rep. Bennie Thompson in 2023, shared her disappointment that Trump was not killed in a series of Facebook posts Saturday night.

“I don’t condone violence but please get you some shooting lessons so you don’t miss next time,” Marsaw wrote. The post was apparently directed at alleged gunman Thomas Matthew Crooks, who was shot and killed by law enforcement after opening fire.

Crooks, 20, wounded Trump and killed a local father, whose daughter said he died shielding her from the gunfire. Crooks seriously injured two others.

“That’s what your hate speech got you!!” Marsaw posted. She later criticized Trump supporters who spoke out against her posts, claiming they “can’t see the wrong that he does.”

Marsaw identified herself as a “CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST” and listed Thompson’s office as her place of employment. She deleted the posts, captured by the Magnolia Tribune, later that evening. Her account appeared deleted as of Sunday afternoon.

Marsaw was fired following the posts.

“I was made aware of a post made by a staff member and she is no longer in my employment,” Thompson said in a statement on Sunday.

Thompson also tweeted a response to the assassination attempt on Saturday evening and expressed he was “glad the former President is safe.”

The congressman, however, had previously introduced a bill to terminate Trump’s Secret Service protection. Thompson introduced the “DISGRACED Former Protectees Act” in April to ensure the former president would receive no “special treatment” following potential felony convictions resulting from Democrats’ lawfare.

Thompson did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment regarding how he views his DISGRACE Act in light of Saturday’s assassination attempt against former President Trump.
