Burn it down

I’ve called a bajillion and three times for the FBI to be dismantled root, branch, and bough, but never thought of this particular angle before.

Abolish the FBI or Face an American Putin

Hm. Interesting notion, I must say. I also have to say that, if the American Pooty-poot remained consistent with Roosha’s version—by which I mean he was equally devoted to advancing his country’s interests, to increasing its influence, wealth, and power by any and every means, bar none—well, it would be such a refreshing change of pace compared to what the Shadow Men yanking Biden’s strings and making his mouth move have been doing right along, I could probably live with it.

Vladimir Putin, not unlike our current FBI Director Christopher Wray, got his start as a “reformer” known for mouthing reform slogans to parry public outrage over the many abuses of the national police organization. Like Putin, Wray has used the smokescreen of cosmetic reforms to amass great power at the expense of the democratic process he is supposed to protect. The FBI has proven over and over again to be totally immune to reform. It consistently fails to punish employees for violating the rules, so changing those rules has no effect.

The existence of the FBI has had no effect on the crime wave plaguing America. Contrary to the many dramatized depictions of the FBI, the Bureau solves an insignificant minority of crimes in America.

The FBI is more than a dysfunctional agency. If it merely failed to fulfill its mandate, it might be a tolerable nuisance. Instead, the FBI has proven to be the single greatest threat to the very Constitution it is supposed to serve and protect. Its domestic spying program and its network of unaccountable informants lead to few bonafide criminal cases but many wholesale violations of constitutional principles.

The FBI is and will forever remain exactly what it’s been since J Edgar’s day: a rogue, unmanageable menace to absolutely everything the Founders intended and hoped for America to become. As the author contends, it cannot be reformed. It can only be submitted to…or destroyed utterly. As with so many other of the perplexing issues that confront us today, it really is that simple; one or the other, there is no third way here.

If only Trump had been what the commies, the swamp creatures, and the idiots (some category overlap may be observed) had said he was: an America-first tyrant who would jail his opponents at the first excuse.

One of the failures. I’d slap the FBI right out of existence. As far as I know, without digging into it, the FBI is entirely a creation of the executive branch, acting through the DOJ/Attorney general. I don’t recall that any federal statute codifies the FBI further, thus the president could theoretically disband it.

I think.

The FBI should be issued long leather coats, armbands with their symbol (?)

Notable Quotes

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." - Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine." - Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril
