Wake Up, America: FBI Whistleblower Says Gov’t Weaponized Against Own Citizens
The U.S. government is preparing to turn its political, technological, and even military might against its own citizens, warned FBI whistleblower Steve Friend.
I had the honor to meet Friend last week at a private event. In my piece originally published on The Prickly Pear about Friend’s talk, I highlighted some of his sobering warnings for Americans.
Friend first detailed the FBI’s pernicious “quota” system, which incentivizes agents to entrap individuals and create crimes that didn’t exist by requiring agents to pursue a certain number of cases to meet arbitrary statistical goals…Friend, for instance, was switched from child sex abuse cases, at a time when child trafficking and exploitation are among the biggest crime epidemics facing America, to Jan. 6 cases. After challenging the use of SWAT teams for Jan. 6 suspects who were not dangerous, Friend ended up being a target of his own agency…
Friend also explained how the FBI falsely inflates the alleged political problem of white supremacist, MAGA “domestic terrorism.” Whereas 9/11, with its 3,000 deaths and over a dozen actual terrorists, was treated as just one case by the FBI, now each and every single person who was at or around the Capitol on Jan. 6 is considered a separate case.That standard fits non-criminal citizens from all around the country…
According to Friend, the FBI is almost entirely filled now with individuals who are either political zealots or willing to follow orders to keep a job; and the agent training is geared toward worsening the weaponization. That’s the situation in multiple government agencies, he said, and it is infecting the military as well…Americans must focus on the local level to save this country, he said [Read the rest on Prickly Pear].
MAGA supporters, military veterans (especially Marines), the Covid-19 unvaccinated, religious Americans, and gun owners are among the particular targets of the FBI, according to Friend.
So, what does this tell you? For one thing, it undermines the argument that you can be non-political, or simply live your life without worrying about the government. You don’t have to be a Trump supporter AND religious to be targeted. There are many traditional Catholics I know who think they can ignore the government altogether, never vote or read the news, and live their lives, totally unaware that traditional Catholics are a particular target of the FBI. If you are a gun owner or unvaccinated, you are on a list. The days of you living on your own little plot of property in a self-contained world without worrying about who governs you are long gone. I’m not sure they ever truly existed, but certainly you could not live that way now.
You have to know and care who is your president and governor and congressman and mayor and school board representative and so on, because, as we learned during Covid, they can shut your life down in a second for completely irrational and arbitrary reasons. That’s one lesson we should have learned from Covid lockdowns and mandates, but too many people did not learn it. No matter how blatantly our supposedly inviolable rights were attacked under Covid, too many people didn’t seem to process that their government wants to destroy their lives and is willing to do pretty much anything to attain its goals.
Which leads me to my next point, that yes, your government hates you. If you go along with their idiotic ideology, they will allow you to survive, but still take your rights away whenever convenient. If you don’t agree with their globalist Marxism, they want to ruin your life. Look at how the Jan. 6 political prisoners were and are treated, literally tortured in jail, their most basic rights trampled, living nightmares sounding like stories right out of a Nazi camp or a Soviet jail. No matter how many times Trump is proven innocent, they just keep suing him, even as a literal traitor and criminal decays in the White House (and our once great country decays with him). The country is being betrayed to the Chinese Communist Party, our most deadly enemy. Pro-lifers, parents concerned about school curriculum, Jews and Christians, and Trump supporters are being hunted and targeted by the FBI, while dangerous and violent criminals are released onto our streets by pro-crime Democrats every single day.
Wake up, America! We are already living under a tyranny more threatening and powerful than the tyranny against which our Founding Fathers fought in the American Revolution. It is the same choice now, stand and fight or die. Our nation will not survive unless we step up to defend her and realize that each one of us has to be involved in the public square or there will soon be no public square at all, just a Marxist dictatorship.
