In the face of mounting evidence pointing to notable corruption and criminality within the ranks and leadership of the FBI, many conservative voices and commentators have felt compelled to stress that “there are many good people” within the agency as a whole.
Recently Donald Trump asserted through the medium of twitter that the reputation of the bureau was presently in tatters thanks to the indiscretions and corrupt actions of former director James Comey.
What Trump and others, however, fail to point out is the fact that the FBI, in a very real sense, cannot possibly avoid becoming a vessel of subversion toward the very precepts upon which the American republic was founded. This grim assessment is linked to and undergirded by the inevitable reality that power corrupts, and as Lord Acton further asserted, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely!”
Thus, when an agency such as the FBI is endowed with sweeping, comprehensive power it is a foregone conclusion that abuse, corruption, and exploitation will become the hallmark of its operational template and performance.
State Sovereignty vs. Federal Usurpation
Most Americans are woefully ignorant of the content and text of the Ninth and Tenth Amendments of the Bill of Rights. By way of review, they read as follows:
Amendment IX: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
Amendment X: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, no prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
It could not be any clearer in its presentation that the founding fathers were dramatically intent upon safeguarding the sovereign independence of the individual states. The central government was being constituted for exceedingly limited purposes which were enumerated in succinct, unambiguous fashion.
Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution states:
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
To borrow money on the credit of the United States;
To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;
To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;
To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;
To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;
To establish Post Offices and Post Roads;
To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;
To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;
To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the Law of Nations;
To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;
To provide and maintain a Navy;
To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;
To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;
To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;
To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings; And
To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.
Yes, this concise litany of functions and areas of jurisdiction comprise the entirety of what the national government was granted authorization for by our wise and learned framers. To them, the rule of law was of the utmost importance. A bloody revolution had been fought and endured for the purpose of establishing and safeguarding individual liberty.
Tyrannical usurpations would not be countenanced or tolerated under the forthcoming Constitutional republic. The founding documents of the American nation provided the legal and philosophical basis upon which subsequent generations would be equipped and empowered to carry forward the historically unique accomplishments of their visionary predecessors. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights were to serve as a law to govern the government, in that the organized power of the state had always represented the single greatest threat to individual freedom and liberty.
An essential component of the new Christian American republic would be the resolve and determination of the people themselves to provide for the enforcement of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which were, quite literally, the supreme law of the land.
In 1798 Thomas Jefferson eloquently expressed in the Kentucky Resolutions that... “In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution...” Jefferson and his liberty-minded contemporaries well understood that it would forever remain the responsibility of the people themselves to vigilantly guard against abuses of power on the part of the state.
Indeed, from the very outset of our post-revolutionary history there has existed a protracted struggle between distinct factions that were fractured over the issue of limited, decentralized government vs. the idea of a stronger, more authoritarian central power. So leery were the anti-federalists of the revolutionary era, that they insisted upon the adoption of the Bill of Rights as a prerequisite for supporting the proposed Constitution that resulted from the convention of state delegations of 1787.
The immortal words upon which America was founded certainly provide the basis and framework for the ongoing defense of liberty. It is imperative, however, that a knowledgeable and dedicated populace provide the tangible means whereby Constitutional enforcement becomes and remains a reality in the unfolding of history.
Destruction Via Prosperity and Ignorance
It is grievous and lamentable that the blessings of prosperity and material abundance often lead to a state of affairs within which men become desensitized to the cause and effect realities that govern the fallen world that surrounds them. Specifically, it is ever so natural to let down our guard when we perceive that threats to our security and well-being have become minimized. It is at precisely such moments in time that the ever-present forces of evil make decisive steps toward the objective of subverting the foundations upon which our liberty is situated.
Scripture, of course, warns us in passages such as 1 Peter 5:8 that we should “be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” And yet...it seems all too commonplace for men to do the precise opposite. When circumstances seem to be going well it naturally follows that men are lulled into a state of apathy and passivity. Material indulgence and the satisfaction of fleshly impulses quickly become elevated to the status of priority and in relatively short order the foundations of Christian civilization begin to crumble.
It is, in fact, most shocking to observe the decline of America during the first century of our existence and history. During that period we experienced enormous growth and expansion which brought with it both extraordinary opportunity and temptation. Unfortunately, we failed, in an overall sense, to build upon the Godly foundation of our republic.
Unbiblical liberalism was allowed to gain a foothold in a broad array of societal arenas and institutions. Through gradual, yet steady, methods of subversion America’s Biblical, patriarchal, righteous foundations became significantly eroded.
Of particular tragic proportions were the results and consequences of the upheaval and tumult of the 1860’s. The War Between the States and the resulting subjugation of the South marked a cataclysmic blow from which we have never recovered. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox on April 9, 1865 represented an acquiescence by the southern states to the tyrannical and usurpatious policies and actions of the national government.
From that day forward America became bound to a precedent of “might making right” instead of the hallowed precept of being “a government of law, not men.” In the midst of chaos and instability, of course, the purveyors of subversive deception and treachery are able to operate undetected and with impunity. The fratricidal conflict known as the Civil War set the stage for an accelerated pace of deterioration as the turn of the century approached. It was within such a cauldron of confusion that we witnessed and experienced the rise of such evils as Marxist political doctrine, Darwinian evolutionary theory, apostate Biblical textual criticism, and the advent of a public education system that rejected Christ-centered curriculum as the legitimate foundation of knowledge and understanding.
The 1900’s of course, were marked by the phenomenon of the proverbial chickens coming home to roost. In 1913 America experienced the triple whammy of the Federal Reserve Act, the Sixteenth Amendment-engendered income tax, and the formal cessation of meaningful state representation in the national government via the adoption of the Seventeenth Amendment whereby states’ senators were subsequently elected by the popular vote of an increasingly misinformed electorate.
In 1917 the cut-throat forces of Bolshevik communism succeeded in the murderous overthrow of the Tsarist Romanov monarchial family. Sixteen years later on November 6th, 1933, Franklin Roosevelt’s America granted full recognition to the Soviet Union and proceeded to finance the building of the very communist military machine that would ultimately be used to make possible the liquidation of tens of millions of Christians the world over.
Also of notable significance during the 1900’s were the rise of anti-Christian feminism, the dramatic watering down of the general values and morality of society, and the financing and establishment on American soil of the forerunner to world government...the United Nations!
Throughout the introduction and occurrence of all the aforementioned, Americans were consistently led to believe that, in an overall sense, the nation was being let into a state of increasing prosperity and enlightenment. In reality, however, the precise opposite was true. Hardcore truth was being undermined and revised at every turn and the seeming prosperity was only an illusion based on “smoke and mirror” type deception.
Welcome to the New U.S.S.A.
Yes, for all intents and purposes...we have slowly devolved into the veritable United Soviet States of America!
Usurpation and overreach by the federal government has come to ghastly proportions as the nanny state now threatens to seize control of every conceivable dimension of our existence. Unfortunately, the rise of the Trump administration amounts to nothing more than a small speed bump on our otherwise fast track to destruction. The federal governmental leviathan has become so pervasive and sprawling in its intrusive, domineering characteristics as to have moved significantly beyond the point of no return. Our only hope, it would seem, is for some unforeseen sequence of events to bring about a neutralizing effect upon the otherwise unlimited power of oppressive, Orwellian-type government.
Everything You Say Can and Will Be Used Against You
In light of our grim assessment of reality, the reader is hereby reminded of the initial theme of this article. Bear in mind that a legitimate Constitutional government could never rightly include within its structure and composition anything remotely resembling today’s Federal Bureau of Investigation. Instead, it has grown and evolved as a result of government having extended its meddling tentacles into a multiplicity of dimensions and theaters of activity for which the Constitution makes no provision or allowance whatsoever.
Thus, the FBI is in no way classifiable as a law enforcement agency that exists or operates within the boundaries or parameters of Constitutional legitimacy. Recent revelations serve to expose the alarming level of corruption and abuse within the bureau but, rest assured, the phenomenon is nothing new. At least as far back as the heyday of J. Edgar Hoover, the FBI was already functioning as an out of control entity that was readily susceptible to being exploited for abusive and dark criminal purposes.
In summation, it is imperative that all who yearn for and desire some semblance of restoration to lawful, Constitutional government should bear in mind the need to maintain a profile of silence when dealing with the FBI. Those who work for this agency are trained and skillful in the art of entrapment and will employ deceit and treacherous manipulation without hesitation.
Often, as in the case of Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, a targeted individual will be cunningly drawn into a situation of jeopardy on the basis of completely false pretense. More often than not, such contrived investigatory circumstances are designed to trip up the targeted subject to the point of commission of what is known as a “process crime” that typically involves the alleged act of “lying” to the FBI. In contrast to the virtually impossible standards to which the interviewee is held, the FBI lies incessantly and with impunity.
Thus, for these and many other yet unspoken reasons...it is both prudent and advisable to never talk to the FBI.
