Congressman Jim Jordan has dispatched a letter demanding answers from FBI Director Christopher Wray after Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents revealed that the Bureau targeted a conservative women’s non-profit in 2016. Wray was given until August 24th to respond.

The group in question, Conservative Women for America (CWA) is a non-profit started in 1978 which advocates against feminism, for the traditional family, opposes gay marriage, and lobbies against abortion.

In mid-July, the Cato Institute uncovered evidence showing that an FBI agent opened up an “assessment” — essentially a proto-investigation — into CWA despite having no predicate to do so.

The agent, whose name is redacted in the FOIA request, decided to embark on a “fishing expedition” that looked at CWA’s finances in hopes of finding evidence of fraud.

At no point did the FBI have any evidence to suspect CWA of wrongdoing. The agent did not like the ideological beliefs of CWA so he or she dug up a bad review on Charity Navigator and used it as an excuse to violate the civil society group’s rights.

Cato’s Patrick Eddington, who has taken the lead in seeking transparency regarding the out-of-control FBI, has uncovered evidence suggesting that the US government is watching virtually everyone — including but not exclusively Muslim groups, civil liberties organizations, and all types of Christian and right-wing oriented people.

The drivers behind the Soviet-style domestic spying program is Jewish groups like the Anti-Defamation League, whose members dominate political donations to both parties. Groups like the ADL seek to keep tabs on and harass anyone who may contradict their community’s interests, and the FBI is eager to oblige.

Last April, Eddington filed a lawsuit seeking information on over 82,000 mostly unjustified “assessments” the FBI led between 2009 and 2011. The FBI has been refusing to comply with their FOIA obligations on the subject in order to avoid public scrutiny, so Eddington has been forced to sue.

CWA spokeswoman Penny Nance took to the opinion pages of Fox News to decry the FBI’s weaponization of its immense Patriot Act powers against her conservative civil right’s groups.

Aside from the occasional letter, like Rep. Jordan’s, not much has been done to reign in the FBI. While in theory the FBI is beholden to all three branches of government, internal documents show that there is essentially no oversight to curtail the FBI’s aggressive political activities.

As the anniversary of 9/11 approaches, there is increased public concern over the FBI’s transformation into a “CIA” to be used against the American people. A new documentary released by PBS focusing on the Liberty City 7 — a group of mentally ill black hustlers who were entrapped in a bogus Al-Qaeda terror plot while the Patriot Act was up for Congressional renewal — sought to rationalize the FBI’s behavior, but ultimately revealed the waste of time and resources that its counter-terrorism tactics are.

  1. Face it….the jews have lost their fucking minds.

    All of the chaos and misery you see before you is simply a jewish temper tantrum…..jewish fear and paranoia write large.

    The jews are not content unless they are looking right up the goy’s asshole every minute of the day.

    It is not news to anyone not drunk on their tainted Koolaid. I have spent 12 years trying to get this issue across to people. It has been a long, arduous road.

    But face it, other than what seems like a few, this goes over the heads of most since the jews’ propaganda network is so vast and complete.

    Those who know a bit about Ruby Ridge and the Branch Davidians know the FBI was always rotten. Going back even further, there was the FBI persecution of right-wing anti-interventionists from 1939-45 and the 1944 Mass Sedition Trial:

    Now do still have doubts that WHITE GENOCIDE is not real…..

  9. Christopher Wray is a Bush Family Acolyte….for sure..

    So this requires a larger analysis of what the Bush Family is about….and I think it comes down to this:

    The larger Bush Family views the Native White Working Class as chattel slaves on various REVOLTING ELITES personal planatations-whatever the labor market.

    Trumps election was a bolt of lighting to the Bush Family’s acolytes….the Native White Working Class wanted to get off the Bush Family Plantation and their trillionaire friends…..Time to implement WHITE GENOCIDE as punishment…

    Time series analysis of the Bush Family:

    Well the Bushes started out in Colonial America as Black Smiths in the upstate NY Albany area…Mohawk Valley area…

    A descendant stroke gold… rude oil…New England Patrician Bush Family ushered in…..From here the Bush Family gave us Negro Rights…..onto being in bed with corrupt Mexican Elites and Saudi Royal Family…onto the Bin Laden Family…

    And there was always the theme of wierd sexual perversion in the Bush Family:Matriarch Barbara stuffing her miscarriage into a pickle jar and handing it off to young George W for garbage mound disposal….George W’s Whitehouse infested with Gay Male Prostitutes and young children…Jeb marries a subhuman small brained primate from the jungles of Oaxaca-incapable of being paper trained…..

  10. The homosexual pederast FBI is the Bush Family FBI…and it was a direct road from the homosexual pederast Ronnie Reagan Whitehouse to the FBI 2021….Go google the 1980 Washington Times front page story about the homosexual pederast Ronnie Reagan Whitehouse.

    It is not a coincidence that Ronnie Reagan worshipper Sean Hannity had 0n as a regular guest commentator a gay male prostitute who was Bush Family operative…

    The Comet Pizza metaphor applies as much to the scummy Bush Family as it does to the scummy Clinton Family…..monumental vaulting sexual perversion and greed…

  11. …legally convict Wray and that prick that preceded him in Office…and then legally dangle both of them from a rope.

  12. @Ockham's Clippers

    These women need to inspect their “Biblical worldview”. See chapters X and XI of the Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romanes (boldface emphases mine):

    [MORE]

    10:12 For there is no difference betweene the Jew and the Greeke: for the same Lord ouer all, is rich unto all, that call upon him.

    […]

    20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not: I was made manifest vnto them, that asked not after me.

    21 But to Israel he sayth, All day long I haue stretched foorth my hands vnto a disobedient and gainesaying people.

    11:1 I Say then, Hath god cast away his people? God forbidde. For I also am an Israelite of the seede of Abraham, of the tribe of Beniamin.

    2 God hath not cast away his people which hee foreknew. Wote yee not what the Scripture saieth of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,

    3 * Lord, they haue killed thy prophets, and digged downe thine Altars, and I am left alone, and they seeke my life.

    4 But what saieth the answere of God vnto him? I haue reserued to myself seuen thousand men, who haue not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

    5 Euen so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

    6 And if by grace, then is it no more of workes: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it bee of workes, then is it no more grace, otherwise worke is no more worke.

    7 What then: Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for, but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded,

    8 According as it is written, God hath giuen them the spirit of slumber: eyes that they should not see, and eares that they should not heare vnto this day.

    9 And David sayth, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling blocke, and a recompense vnto them.

    10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow downe their backe alway.

    11 I say then, Haue they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid. But rather through their fall, saluation is come vnto the Gentiles, to prouoke them to ielousie.

    […]

    17 And if some of the branches bee broken off, and thou being a wilde oliue tree wert graffed in amongst them, and with them partakest of the roote and fatness of the Oliue tree:

    18 Boast not against the branches, but if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

    19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might bee graffed in.

    20 Well: because of vnbeliefe they were broken off, and thou standest by fayth. Be not high minded, but feare.

    21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heede least hee also spare not thee.

    22 Beholde therefore the goodnesse and seueritie of God: on them which fell, seueritie; but towards thee, goodnesse, if thou continue in his goodnesse: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

    […]

    28 As concerning the Gospel, they are enemies for your sake: but as touching the election, they are beloued for the fathers sakes.

    The Christian view of Jews is that members without faith in their Messiah of Jesus were pruned from the tree. These are the natural branches of the tree, but they were broken off. People from John Chrysostom to Martin Luther realised that broken Jews are not friends of a Christian. But now the solâ scripturâ-Americans have lost their biblical vision of the world. Perhaps the title of this article should be: “…Surveilled Conservative Zionist Women’s Group…”.

    Of course, members with faith in their Messiah, what happened to them? Would they not have simply been seen as Christians now, instead of Jews? And so who are the true inheritors of Israel? The apostate Jews who killed their Saviour, or the Jews and Gentiles who followed him?

    The best option all along was not to vote=do not consent to be governed by Nixon…Reagan…Bush H…homosexual lisping Bush W…and Trump……and it would also have been a refusal not to be governed by Hindu Kamala Harris…

    It’s already out of the news cycle but last week an ADL-led coalition released a report that got notice for its claim that, despite finding at the local level most hate crimes prosecutions are against blacks, most hate crimes are still committed by whites.
    They cite FBI numbers that appear wildly inflated, and say police can’t be trusted. The report’s goal is a uniform federal hate crimes legal regime to do away with the “patchwork” of state hate crimes laws.

    The FBI has already taken on the role, as you see. FBI bureaucrats need not be true believers (though the long march through the institutions has seeded the organization it looks like) to embrace it: the new role means new prestige, power and money.

    This is bad.

    I’m pretty sure Nixon didn’t run on demographic replacement. Whether or not Americans were betrayed by him, they didn’t vote “for” any such thing.

    This obsession with the child molestation angle is puerile and self-defeating.

    Nixon was a proto-neo-liberal who was a destroyer of Nations…After napalming Vietnam…Nixon softened Vietnam into a basket case….and down the road to neo-liberal Global Homo…Mission accomplished….Nixon set America on the road to neo-liberal globo-homo…Mission accomplished on Nov 3 2020…

    As if it all started with Nixon. That’s silly. You give him too much credit. Why waste your time on irrelevant and stupid nonsense? Don’t be a cringe-merchant. It’s very counter-productive.

    Striker’s doing good work here, and you wade in and take a giant shit, just in case a random normie needs to be scared away from the truth with bloviating cringe.

  23. @Dennis Dale

    No it didn’t start with Nixon. Started in 1945(and it goes back further than this). Nixon was a scummy opportunist like Reagan who handed the baton off. Nixon did a great job of opening up China….handed the baton off to Carter who really opened the door…The Mao suits began appearing on US Land Grant institutions in 1979….onto Reagan and the fart joke Bush Family…and onto the fart joke Donald Trump. The Han are a powerful and highly racialized Democratic Party Voting Bloc…

    The random normie is about to get their skulls crushed in by the next Dem POTUS after Biden is retired to a bedpan…

  24. @War for Blair Mountain

    Nixon and his two kraut advisors imposed affirmative action on the Native White Working Class…and the memo read:”Labor defeated….”

  25. @BuelahMan

    You’re absolutely right. This should actually be frontpage news if America had a real media, not the corporatist lackeys they actually have. As Paul Craig Roberts says, Americans are an insouciant people, mostly brainwashed by the MSM and corrupted by the “schooling” system. Very few are like us and actually realise the importance of these matters.

    Thanks to Eric Striker. His column deals with a lot of unglamorous, but very important, matters not covered by other columnists.
