Exploring the History Of The Federal Bureau of Investigation
It appears that the mainstream media narrative is quickly trying to shift the word “raid” to “search” regarding the recent Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) siege of Mar-a-Lago. The ruling class must have caught on that this raid is not making them look too great, even though they probably expected it to make Trump look bad.
Either way, I’m sticking with the word raid. I don’t think you can call dozens of men showing up in body armor with semi-autos pointed in your face a “search”. Especially not if you understand the history of the FBI. Raid definitely seems slightly more accurate.
This is especially true because the FBI supposedly said that the Trump’s family lawyer could not be present during the search and demanded that there be no security recording of their actions, which is hilariously illegal:
FBI Had Mole Inside Mar-a-Lago: Report
For starters, Eric Trump told the Daily Mail that “the 30 agents who arrived at the property asked staff to turn security cameras off – and to kick their lawyer off the property, but they refused.“
“They told our lawyer… you have to leave the property right now. Turn off all security cameras.”
Eric also said “They would not give her the search warrant,” adding “So they showed it to her from about 10 feet away. They would not give her a copy of the search warrant.”
He also said that the FBI brought safe crackers in to break into his father’s safe, and that agents rummaged through Melania Trump’s wardrobe.
While illegal, it should not be surprising.
This is FBI 101.
Maybe even more basic: Federal Police 101.
I wrote on the Trump raid just a couple of days ago, but I continue to be shocked by the fact that the average American still seems to think this is a new phenomenon of the FBI being corrupt and evil.
The amount of people that are acting just flabbergasted about these kind of events troubles me. How do people still not recognize this yet? How are so many still in the dark?
The indoctrination is so entrenched that the average American must have honestly considered the FBI the good guys still. I don’t know how or if we can break this spell on them. It’s sad, but it is what it is.
But more troubling—it doesn’t seem to be just the grey masses that are acting shocked by this raid, but even some dissidents.
There is a chance that I have overlooked some of our newer dissidents’ knowledge on the history of the FBI. We have to correct this. Everyone should know the truth about the Bureau, but it’s non-negotiable for dissidents. This is life-saving information for a dissident to have.
So, let’s get into it.
Let’s recall the historical founding of the FBI. Most of the grey masses don’t realize this, but the FBI was created entirely by executive order.
Not only that, but our entire democratic process and Congress actually fought the executive (FDR) before, during, and after its founding because they knew the FBI would become secret police. Sadly, they lost and the dictatorial order won.
Don’t take my word for it:
President Theodore Roosevelt initially asked the U.S. Congress to create a federal detective force in 1907. Congress opposed President Roosevelt’s idea on the official grounds of the long-cited public disdain for an all powerful federal law enforcement agency. However, unofficially, it was significant that in 1906 two members of Congress had been prosecuted for fraud, the investigation of which was conducted by the Justice Department using agents from another federal agency. As a result, many members of Congress were concerned about giving the executive branch of government more investigative power (power perhaps to conduct more investigations of those individuals in the legislative branch). Along with denying President Roosevelt’s request, Congress passed legislation that prohibited the Justice Department from using investigators from other federal agencies. Not to be stopped by Congress, in 1908 President Roosevelt created the Bureau of Investigation by executive order and directed Attorney General Charles Bonaparte to develop the agency within the Department of Justice. Twenty permanent and eighteen temporary investigators were hired. The action on the part of President Roosevelt led to considerable political conflict and to many political battles between Congress and the president. The fear of Congress was that the Bureau of Investigation was going to act as a sort of secret police—and, in fact, these fears were quickly substantiated in 1909 when it was learned that agents from the bureau had regularly opened the mail of Senator Benjamin Till-man, one of the bureau’s most vocal opponents.
Even fbi.gov gives a watered-down version of this story:
Bonaparte made the problem known to Congress, which wondered why he was even renting Secret Service investigators at all when there was no specific provision in the law for it. In a complicated, political showdown with Congress, involving what lawmakers charged was Roosevelt’s grab for executive power, Congress banned the loan of Secret Service operatives to any federal department in May 1908.
Now Bonaparte had no choice, ironically, but to create his own force of investigators, and that’s exactly what he did in the coming weeks, apparently with Roosevelt’s blessing. In late June, the Attorney General quietly hired nine of the Secret Service investigators he had borrowed before and brought them together with another 25 of his own to form a special agent force. On July 26, 1908, Bonaparte ordered Department of Justice attorneys to refer most investigative matters to his Chief Examiner, Stanley W. Finch, for handling by one of these 34 agents. The new force had its mission—to conduct investigations for the Department of Justice—so that date is celebrated as the official birth of the FBI.
Congress banned the ability for the executive to use federal police as his own personal investigators, even going so far as to ban him from using loaned operatives from other agencies. So what did Roosevelt do? He created an executive order to get around it and then used the new agents to target his opponents.
One man created the FBI. Not Congress, not the people, and not with any form of oversight by the judiciary. One executive order. That’s it. A corrupt order at that, because it directly circumvented the wishes of Congress.
Congress tried to fight against a secret police lead by the executive, but the FBI immediately started targeting the bureau’s opponents.
The FBI was a political secret police that was targeting anyone that didn’t like them from Day One, when they had like four agents.
An organization that serves the executive, created solely by the executive, with no accountability or oversight, that started with a history of political gestapo-like behavior. What could go wrong?
Give me a break.
The FBI was literally corrupt upon its founding. What’s that saying about a bad tree unable to bear good fruit?
The FBI is simply the secret federal gestapo of the managerial state. Or you could call them the Ottoman’s Janissaries. Always have been, since the founding.
Read these two articles, and it will all come together:
It’s not like this is the only incidence of the FBI being a corrupt, evil institution.
It’s hard to reduce it to only a few examples, honestly.
There was one point that the FBI had one of their snipers shoot an innocent mother in the head when she didn’t even know they were there and had no weapons on her. Just target practice, I suppose. Oh, they also slaughtered two innocent families that just wanted to be left alone in peace during that same siege.
Oh, then there was that time just recently where they went door-to-door trying to intimidate people about Jan 6.
We also shouldn’t forget that time when we had a confirmed FBI agent traveling with terrorists for days right before they attempted to commit a mass shooting and provided them with assistance in planning the act. The Fed then took a picture of the terrorists and tried to flee the scene. Luckily, a local cop intervened. Otherwise, this would have been yet another mass shooting. The FBI is likely involved in many, many mass shooting and terrorist incidents.
The FBI also has a history of setting up presidents for blackmail. So that’s nice.
Do I even need to mention COINTELPRO? If you don’t know what that is, you should immediately go study it at length. That is a dissident essential. They are doing the exact same things now with populist and dissident organizations.
Then there was that time the FBI purposefully set a building on fire with people in it (Waco), horrifically murdering nearly a hundred people, including 25 children. The reprobate FBI (and other Fed) agents then took turns getting pictures by their charred corpses, like this one:
Want even more examples of their corruption? Start here. The rabbit hole is endless, so be ready.
What about the FBI’s founding director? How was his character?
Introducing Mr. Hoover:
John Edgar Hoover was an American law enforcement administrator who served as the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States. He was appointed director of the Bureau of Investigation – the FBI’s predecessor – in 1924 and was instrumental in founding the FBI in 1935, where he remained director for another 37 years until his death in 1972.
Later in life and after his death, Hoover became a controversial figure as evidence of his secretive abuses of power began to surface. He was found to have routinely violated the very laws the FBI was charged with enforcing, to have used the FBI to harass political dissidents, to amass secret files for blackmailing high level politicians, and to collect evidence using vigilantism and many other illegal methods. Hoover consequently amassed a great deal of power and was in a position to intimidate and threaten others, including multiple sitting presidents of the United States.
Here’s a small list of his FBI-related hobbies:
- Illegal investigation of subversion and radicals (dissidents)
- Blackmailing presidents and congressmen
- Illegal wire-tapping
- Concealed espionage discoveries
- Plans for expanding the FBI to do global intelligence (One World Police)
- Plans for suspending habeas corpus
Also see here:
Hoover habitually used the FBI’s enormous surveillance and information-gathering powers to collect damaging information on politicians throughout the country, and he kept the most scurrilous data under his own personal control. He used his possession of these secret files to maintain himself as the FBI’s director and was apparently able to intimidate even sitting presidents by threatening to leak damaging disclosures about them. By the early 1970s he had come under public criticism for his authoritarian administration of the FBI and for his persecution of those he regarded as radicals and subversives. He retained his post, however, until his death at age 77, by which time he had been the FBI’s chief for 48 years and had served 8 presidents and 18 attorneys general.
If you had thought “Hey, maybe the FBI wanted to escape their founding history and change?”, you’d also be wrong. Their headquarters is still named after this guy.
The truth is, we don’t need federal police. We never needed them. They are a tool of the executive for centralization and control.
The truth about the FBI is that they were immoral secret police from their founding and continue to bear that fruit today.
Their origin was unaccountable corruption and tyranny, and they continue to bear that fruit today.
Their founder was a corrupt and power-hungry blackmailer, and they continue to bear that fruit today.
None of this will change. You should not be shocked that they raided a former president’s residence. Or that they are fine killing innocent people or acting as a militarized police for the executive. That’s exactly what they have done since their founding. You should only be shocked if they do something good for once in their existence.
Recognize the trends. They rarely change. A big piece of having wisdom is simply recognizing trends to reliably predict the future based on the past.
When Christ said a bad tree bears bad fruit, he was not mistaking his words. The FBI was clearly a bad tree from its origin, so what fruit do you expect it to bear?
