Members of a Pennsylvania based skinhead group called Aryan Strikeforce have now all been sentenced for a 2016 conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Joshua Steever pled to 20 years, Henry Lambert Baird got 14 years, and four others received lesser but significant sentences. What is noteworthy about this case is the FBI's outrageous conduct during the... Read More

On June 22nd, a group of anarchist hackers called DDoSecrets dumped 270 gigabytes worth of internal documents belonging to regional police fusion centers, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The documents provide interesting insight into state surveillance tactics, political bias and dynamics, and how "threats" are prioritized. The files -- dated from... Read More
The FBI's war on civil liberties and political dissent is kicking up a notch. National Justice interviewed Shandon Simpson, an Ohio-based member of the National Guard currently being discharged who was humiliated, threatened and tortured by federal agents. He was never charged for a crime. A parallel military investigation found that, while initially his identity... Read More
Tucker Carlson Explains The unraveling of the Michael Flynn case
FBI documents forced out of the FBI’s hands reveal that the case against General Flynn was illegitimate and had in the FBI’s own words no evidence in its behalf. So FBI officials undertook to frame General Flynn. It is all completely clear in the released documents, and thus the Justice Department had to dismiss the... Read More
While China blames the US government for the coronavirus, Jewish organizations and the FBI are busy seeding paranoid hoaxes against their national enemy: politically active white men in America. According to an FBI report cited by World Jewish Congress head Ronald Lauder, bands of "white nationalists" and "neo-Nazis" are currently roaming the streets of New... Read More

Yesterday, the FBI made a big show of arresting multiple alleged members of a "white supremacist" group they have designated as a national security threat equivalent to ISIS. Federal prosecutors have charged black metal fan Cameron Denton, the Nazi Al-Baghdadi, with telling the police to send SWAT teams after a journalist and a politician as... Read More
It's rare for the FBI to release documents about ongoing criminal matters on their "Vault" page, but today they did just that. A document marked "DOMESTIC TERRORISM, SENSITIVE INVESTIGATIVE MATTER," shows that they have put the pro-Donald Trump fraternity Proud Boys, started by Gavin McInnes, under surveillance as a terrorist organization. Eight pages of the... Read More
Fred C. Arena, a former employee of the Navy Yard in Philadelphia with no criminal record, has been sentenced to 6 months in prison for the process crime of "lying to the FBI." According to the indictment, Arena had filled out an electronic questionnaire to obtain a national security clearance for his job. On it,... Read More
The FBI has just classified “white nationalists and Neo-Nazis” (n.b. no distinction) as the same as ISIS (!), and America’s JournoFa are congratulating themselves [The FBI Just Put White Nationalists and Neo-Nazis on the Same Threat Level as ISIS, by Tess Owen, Vice, February 6, 2020]. Meanwhile, back in the real world, an Antifa group... Read More
Trump appointed FBI director Christopher Wray today declared that "white nationalists" and the "far-right" are being treated as a threat on par with ISIS. The Department of Justice under William Barr has also ordered a massive offensive against "anti-Semitism." The FBI has been engaged in an aggressive crusade to gather facts to bolster their claims...

Go on the Southern Poverty Law Center's website, and you will find all types of irrelevant crap. Stephen Miller once read a Vdare article. Borderline defamatory out of context quotes painting yours truly as some kind of baby eating monster. A guy who retweeted another guy, who knows a guy who might be racist. Their... Read More
The FBI has since the summer been under immense political pressure to turn up "white supremacist domestic terrorists." As with leftists and Muslims during previous political crackdowns, the FBI is dusting off the old playbook and manufacturing them. The latest case is a group called The Base, a small organization that is considered the most... Read More
Former US Attorney Joe diGenova predicts that US Justice (sic) Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the Obama regime’s FISA court violations and US Attorney John Durham’s criminal investigation of the Russiagate hoax perpetrated by the CIA, FBI, Democratic National Committee, and presstitute media will be “very bad for people in the Obama administration....

The developing story about how the US intelligence and national security agencies may have conspired to influence and possibly even reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election is compelling, even if one is disinclined to believe that such a plot would be possible to execute. Not surprisingly perhaps there have been considerable introspection among... Read More
Now that the lying machine that comprises the US and Western media has failed with the Russiagate propaganda, the machine has switched to Chinagate. The least trusted American Institution, other than the CIA, is the FBI. McClatchy news reports that the FBI has “expanded its task force on election security beyond examining Russian efforts ahead...

According to the FBI's priorities, it is more acceptable to kill blacks than to joke on the internet about killing blacks.
Watch TV shows like MindHunter or Dick Wolf's FBI and you might come under the impression that the FBI is a law enforcement organization. But from its inception, the FBI has always acted as political police led by megalomaniacs (Hoover, Mueller, Comey, McCabe) with no real congressional oversight or public accountability. They are so lawless... Read More

Did the FBI spy on the Trump campaign? Yes Did the FBI place spies in the Trump campaign? Yes Do we know the names of the spies and how they operated? Yes Were the spies trying to entrap Trump campaign assistants in order to gather information on Trump? Yes Did the spies try to elicit... Read More
Last weekend, The New York Times reported that senior FBI officials were so concerned about whatever President Donald Trump's true motivation for firing FBI Director James Comey was that they immediately initiated a counterintelligence investigation of the president himself. The Times reported that these officials believed that Trump may have intentionally or unwittingly played into... Read More

At the time of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August a year ago, Donald Trump was the only prominent American politician to blame both sides for the violence. This evenhandedness suggested his administration might be equally evenhanded in bringing charges of rioting and violence. Starting with the President’s own inauguration, antifa... Read More

Peter Strzok, the disgraced and disgraceful Federal Bureau of Investigation official, is the very definition of a slimy swamp creature. Strzok twitched, grimaced and ranted his way to infamy during a joint hearing of the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees, on July 12. In no way had he failed to discharge his professional unbiased obligation... Read More
When President Donald Trump appointed Atlanta lawyer Christopher Wray to succeed James Comey as the director of the FBI, my initial reaction was not positive. Wray is a veteran of the Department of Justice and is part of that good-old-boy DOJ network that knows how to protect its own. Indeed, when then-New Jersey Gov. Chris... Read More

After 18 months of withering attacks and accusations, Donald Trump has decided to get up off the canvas and fight back. In a series of tweets stretching from Sunday night to early Monday morning, Trump announced that he would launch his own investigation to see whether the FBI and DOJ had improperly targeted his campaign...

Few government organizations have been engaged in violation of the US citizens’ constitutional rights for as long a time and against as many individuals as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Seldom has there been greater collusion in the perpetration of crimes against civil liberties, electoral freedom and free and lawful expression as what has... Read More
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the third presidential debate in 2016, during which Clinton called Trump Vladimir Putin’s “puppet.
Russia-gate is becoming FBI-gate, thanks to the official release of unguarded text messages between loose-lipped FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok and his garrulous girlfriend, FBI lawyer Lisa Page. (Ten illustrative texts from their exchange appear at the end of this article.) Despite his former job as chief of the FBI’s counterintelligence section, Strzok had the... Read More
The original question the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign was to answer was a simple one: Did he do it? Did Trump, or officials with his knowledge, collude with Vladimir Putin's Russia to hack the emails of John Podesta and the DNC, and leak the contents to damage Hillary Clinton and elect Donald Trump?...

Within hours of his victory in last year's presidential election, Donald Trump dispatched his lawyers to establish a nonprofit corporation to manage his transition from private life to the presidency. This was done pursuant to a federal statute that provides for taxpayer-funded assistance to the newly elected -- but not yet inaugurated -- president. The... Read More
On Aug. 9, 1974, Richard Nixon bowed to the inevitability of impeachment and conviction by a Democratic Senate and resigned. The prospect of such an end for Donald Trump has this city drooling. Yet, comparing Russiagate and Watergate, history is not likely to repeat itself. First, the underlying crime in Watergate, a break-in to wiretap... Read More

Retired US Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn's sin was lying to liars, not colluding with Russians. When he spoke to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, following Donald Trump's 2016 election, former National Security Advisor Flynn was discharging a perfectly legal and patriotic duty to the electorate. In a fit of pique, then-President Barack Obama had expelled... Read More
Christopher Wray, President Donald Trump's FBI director nominee, seems a perfectly nice man. But nothing he has said during confirmation hearings, on July 12, distinguishes him as someone who would reform Barack Hussein Obama’s Islamophilic FBI. President Trump ran on a quixotic set of ideas about aggressively stopping Islamic terror. Like a fly in amber,... Read More
Last week, when former FBI Director James Comey gave his long-awaited public testimony about his apparently rough-and-tumble relationship with President Donald Trump, he painted a bleak picture. The essence of Comey's testimony was that the president asked him to drop an investigation of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn -- Trump's former national security adviser --... Read More
Last weekend, The New York Times published a long piece about the effect the FBI had on the outcome of the 2016 presidential campaign. As we all know, Donald Trump won a comfortable victory in the Electoral College while falling about 3 million votes behind Hillary Clinton in the popular vote. I believe that Clinton... Read More
When Hillary Clinton delivered a campaign post-mortem to her major supporters in a telephone conference call late last week, she blamed her loss in the presidential election on FBI Director James Comey. She should have blamed the loss on herself. Her refusal to safeguard state secrets while she was secretary of state and her failure... Read More
She showed little respect for the law—and probably compromised classified information
The FBI has decided not to recommend criminal charges for Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server, but Director James Comey’s explanation of the decision provides some additional information on what occurred and how. Among the 30,000 emails turned over by Hillary’s lawyers were eight chains classified at the highest level—“Top Secret”—plus... Read More
The China Factor in the Apple/FBI Battle
I take perverse pleasure (note to self: discuss with analyst!) in parting company with my libertarian/lefty buddies on the issue of the FBI’s demand that Apple assist in accessing an iPhone phone of the San Bernardino shooter. The shadow of the People’s Republic of China—and the demands it plans to impose on US vendors of... Read More
Does the FBI manifest fidelity, bravery and integrity, or does it cut constitutional corners in order to incriminate? Can the FBI cut the cable television lines to your house and then show up pretending to be the cable guy and install listening devices? Can FBI agents and technicians testify falsely and cause the innocent to... Read More
Lot of talk about bad guys being FBI assets recently. Thanks to his lawyers, the Interwebs are ahumwith speculation that the FBI neglected to hoover up Tamerlan Tsarnaev a.k.a. the Elder before the Boston marathon bombing because the Bureau was already in touch with him and trying to turn him as an asset, not because...

Antipathy between CIA and FBI runs deep. There was a news item tonight about someone in northern Virginia pretending to be an FBI special agent. I immediately, and reflexively, thought "Oh yeah, all he needed was a bad haircut and a cheap suit." Apologies to at least some of those who might be offended. It... Read More
