FBI Raids Trump Estate As Years-long Power Trip Reaches New Level
The FBI is making headlines for its unprecedented raid of Trump’s estate… but it shouldn’t come as a surprise, given the power trip the agency has been on in recent years.
The FBI has a history of giving itself more power, while protecting its agents when they break the law…
Can we take a minute to talk about the fact that the FBI’s raid on Trump’s home… isn’t really about Donald Trump? Or that the corruption within the agency everyone is suddenly talking about, has been there for years?
Now, to be clear, the move to raid a former president’s home in the way the FBI just did does set an incredibly dangerous precedent—and the excuse that it’s just the National Archives targeting Trump because they believe he has classified documents is questionable at best.
But while some people believe this is further proof that Trump is some sort “anti-establishment hero,” and that the FBI raid is part of a witch-hunt from the Democrats aimed at trying to stop him from running against in 2024… there’s much more to it than that.
See, I would argue that in the eyes of an agency like the FBI, people like Trump and Biden are “useful idiots,” at best.
What is often overlooked is how much power the FBI has gained in recent years. How many laws its agents have broken that they were never held accountable for, and how those crimes have become almost common.
Take warrantless searches of Americans’ data, for example. It started in the name of targeted terrorism suspects, before the FBI started throwing in the names of American citizens, and everyone just went along with it.
And yet, despite the fact that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has documented “widespread violations” by the FBI year after year—it continues to approve the controversial program it uses to collect Americans’ data without a warrant.
The corruption within the FBI doesn’t stop there—and yes, it goes far beyond what whistleblowers now say was an effort to coverup the illegal material on Hunter Biden’s laptop, by claiming it was all “Russian disinformation.”
This is the same FBI that let Jeffrey Epstein and his accomplices run rampant for years, and that continues to do so, as it acts like Ghislaine Maxwell is the end of the story.
The same FBI that refused to charge its agents who refused to investigate Larry Nassar—and then lied about their actions—after received numerous reports from the more than 100 girls he sexually assaulted.
The same FBI that has been caught time ignoring reports of dangerous individuals and refusing to take action as they went on to carry out mass shootings.
The same FBI that quietly started referring to “conspiracy theories” as “domestic terrorist threats” back in 2019, which seems only fitting, now that “domestic terrorism” is the latest variant the US Intelligence Community claims they’re concerned about.
Oh, and it’s also the same FBI whose agents have recently been changing their employers to Big Tech companies like Twitter at an alarming rate… because stealing your data through the traditional channels wasn’t enough for them apparently.
So, not only does a raid of a former president’s home give the FBI even more power by setting a precedent that they can abuse in the future—it also serves as a new distraction for the Biden Administration in the midst of a struggling US Economy.
It rallies up the Republicans who still somehow view Trump as “anti-establishment,” despite the fact that he bowed to Israel and Saudi Arabia, continued to support genocide in Yemen, killed a record number of civilians in Afghanistan, illegally stole oil from Syria and bragged about it… the list goes on.
And for Democrats, it reignites their fears that Trump will return to the White House in 2024, which brings them back to the only rallying cry they have had in recent years… which is that it doesn’t matter how useless their president or their majority in Congress is… as long as it’s not Trump.
So, at the end of the day, the entire US establishment gets exactly what it wants—for the American people to continue to align with two major parties as if they’re on opposite sides of the aisle, while in reality the members at the top of those parties continue to work together to give themselves even more power, while taking away the rights of the people they’re supposed to represent—and that’s something everyone should be talking about.
