The Conservative Voice in Manatee County

FBI: The Former Bureau of Investigation needs a plumber

Anyone know a good plumber? I hear the Former Bureau of Investigation needs several leaks fixed. Clearly their cesspool needs to be emptied of the BS, as well.

Did you hear about the FBI contacting Facebook after the New York Post broke the Hunter Biden laptop story and told Zuckerberg and crew that it was Russian disinformation?

Leave it to Joe Rogan to break actual news. It’s funny that Zuck would tell Rogan that on a podcast, but failed to mention it every single time he was brought before Congress.

You almost can’t blame Zuck for taking action when you have the FBI calling you and asking you to do something about misinformation that in fact was real information and a true story.

Actually, yes we can blame Zuck. For that and so much more.

Zuck told Rogan he “regrets” adjusting the algorithm that made that story virtually impossible to share. If you believe that Zuck regrets anything that suppresses Conservative truth, well, you clearly voted for Biden anyway and are eligible for a lobotomy.

I’ve seen the ads where Facebook – or Meta, or whatever they want to call themselves these days – boasts about having 41,000 employees keeping us safe from disinformation.

I was stunned when I heard the number, but then again, 80 million people allegedly voted for Biden.

I don’t know about you but I sleep so much better at night knowing Facebook employees are at the gate keeping the wolves at bay. Whew. Rest easy my friends because Facebook and the FBI are on the job.

Facebook’s army of disinformation employees is more than the active military for 104 countries by the way. But less than half of this nation’s IRS armed auditors for whatever that’s worth.

Facebook bragging about it is kind of like Hitler boasting about Joseph Goebbels and his army of SS storm troopers working hard to protect the Jews in the 1930s.

No, it’s not the same thing, and I’m not making those two statements equal. But there is some truth in there in terms of propaganda and manipulation.

Dear Lord, what has happened to this agency? Granted, it was essentially founded by J. Edgar Hoover who gained a reputation as the nation’s top G-Man for 37 years, using his power to document and spy on the sex lives of presidents and government officials.

Hoover targeted homosexuals while having homosexual affairs and rumors persist of him dressing as a woman. Hey, I don’t judge. I’m a, “you do you and I do me,” kind of guy, but there is some major hypocritical irony going on there.

It was also the first sign that the FBI was used for political power.

Hoover was also a racist who tried to discredit Martin Luther King Jr. and turned a blind eye to the Mafia in the 1950s. Some speculate the mafia had the goods on Hoover’s sex life as the reason he suddenly abandoned a focus on organized crime and used the Cold War as an excuse to change the direction of the agency.

It’s no wonder the FBI has produced people like Peter Strzok who got away with treason and James Comey, who betrayed this nation on multiple fronts.

Not to mention the so-called 50 FBI agents who swore that the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation, and whoever made the decision to use Facebook to spread their own misinformation.

Guess those 41,000 Facebook employees assigned to catch that kind of thing had the day off that day?

Not to mention Trump-appointed FBI Director Christopher Wray who should be ashamed of himself for caving to Attorney General Merrick Garland, the most corrupt and partisan AG this country has had since Obama’s pick Eric Holder.

Holder, by the way, actually ignored a congressional subpoena over the Fast and Furious scandal. He didn’t get charged like Trump associates did. Imagine that.

I guess it makes sense now that Biden decided to keep Wray as FBI Director. It’s pretty clear that Wray is a “play ball” kind of guy.

I tend to be blunt and sometimes it’s hard to activate my filter, even during our visits, but it seems to me that very few in Washington D.C. have any balls.

Yeah, I said it.

They all play the game. They all protect themselves even when their very job descriptions are grounded in the oath they take to protect and defend this country and its citizens.

How many politicians do you know that actually care about you? I suspect a few do, but I know of only one for sure and his name is President Donald J. Trump.

I suppose like everything else, this latest FBI disaster with Trump will sort itself out, and as usual, nothing will be done about it. The only accountability will come from us, and as I live and breathe, that accountability begins in this General Election.

On that note, please don’t let me hear, “Defund the FBI.”

It’s just as ridiculous as the defund the police movement. Corruption starts from the top and trickles down. Corrupt leaders breed corrupt agents and that’s what happened within the FBI.

Wray is doing nothing about it, so our option is to ensure we elect people who will do something about it and purge our government agencies from corruption once and for all.

It’s really not that complicated. Just actually prosecute people, strip away pensions and put people in jail and I guarantee corruption will take a vacation. It’s no different than our crime problem right now. Bring back law and order and these crime spikes will drop as fast as Biden’s popularity polls.

My criticism is for FBI leadership who bend the knee to D.C. swamp monsters. It is not for the rank-in-file agents who uphold their oaths and believe in justice. God bless you for your service to this nation.

There is nothing worse than putting your heart and soul into something and having the kind of leadership that betrays everything you believed in and slowly kills your soul.

Trust me, I know. For that is exactly what happened at the Bradenton Herald, which has gone from horrible leadership to no leadership. For those still there, keep your head out of the hot water and doggy paddle for your lives. It’s not going to get any better.

McClatchy has destroyed any and every illusion of local journalism in Manatee County. It just doesn’t exist anymore no matter how hard good people try to keep it afloat.

I’ll close our visit today with one final thought. I am a MAGA Republican. Joe Biden can take his mistrust for me and shove it where the sun don’t shine because he and his minions are the ones not to be trusted.

With that said, stay vigilant my fellow Patriots. Stay aware and stay informed. I kept my promise to give our primary candidates a much-needed break but we’ll start digging into the General Election next time around. And Lordy, Lordy, do we have a lot to talk about.
