Legal Insurrection: This is a Provocation. Don't Take the Bait.

fbiden.jpg

I don't know if this is right, but... maybe:


This is a provocation. They are trying to get a reaction that allows a further crackdown.

Don't take the bait.

My overall sense of what happened at Mar-a-Lago is that this is a provocation.

If New York Times reporting is right -- and they never err on the side of being soft on Trump -- then this raid was over documents the National Archives thinks Trump should not have, or perhaps classified documents in his possession. That is not something the FBI raids major political candidates over -- See, In Re Hillary Rodham Clinton.

This is a provocation. They are trying to get a reaction that allows a further crackdown. See, In Re J6.

There's more, but it's a short post and I can't quote it all.

Certainly The Regime has defined virtually anything that a conservative might say as a "sign of domestic terrorism" now.

If you mention Waco or Ruby Ridge, you're a domestic terrorist.

If you post the Gadsden flag, you're a domestic terrorist.

If you cite the spirit of 1776, you're a domestic terrorist.

If you complain about the government's killing of Ashli Babbit, you're a terrorist.

No really. See below.

You are allowed to put out the racial-hatred stirring false claim that Michael Brown was "murdered" -- a false claim that caused violent riots, and which was proven false by Eric Holder's own racialized DOJ -- but if you say that Ashli Babbit was murdered by a cop who killed an unarmed woman, then you're a "terrorist."

You know who aren't domestic terrorists, according to the FBI and DOJ, right?

Antifa. They don't even exist.

See, they're anti-government, but The Regime approves of leftwing anti-government groups, because leftwing anti-government groups burning down cities, looting stores, and murdering people give The Regime cover to move to the leftwing.

Which is what The Regime wants.

But right-leaning groups expressing criticism of government?

Those are terrorists.

Project Veritas was leaked the FBI's guide to "Violent Extremists'" language and symbology. Ted Cruz cited this in his interrogation of a DOJ thug.


FBI Whistleblower LEAKS Bureau's 'Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide' on 'Militia Violent Extremists' Citing Ashli Babbitt as MVE Martyr


Leaked document is labelled as "Unclassified/Law Enforcement Sensitive" that is for "FBI Internal Use Only."

Under the "Symbols" category of the document, "2A" is listed with the following explanation: "MVEs justify their existence with the Second Amendment, due to the mention of a 'well regulated Militia,' as well as the right to bear arms."

"Revolutionary War imagery" such as the "Gadsden Flag" and the "Molly Ross Flag" are cited in the document under "Commonly Referenced Historical Imagery or Quotes."

...

Right below that, under the "Commonly Referenced Historical Imagery and Quotes" section, Revolutionary War images such as the Gadsden Flag and the Molly Ross Flag are listed. Each flag displayed in the document comes with a brief description of what it means.

Under the "Common Phrases and References" section of the leaked document, Ashli Babbitt is cited as a person that MVEs consider to be a Martyr.

As Viva Frei points out: It was the criminal Obama's habit of claiming that he only found out about every sleazy thing he did "from the newspapers, same as you did."



Flashback:

Leadership: President Obama now claims he doesn't watch the news after telling the public he learned about all his scandals from the news. He is a man of many contradictions.

Obama told donors at a Democratic fundraiser Tuesday that he doesn't watch the news because, "Whatever they're reporting about, usually I know." Really? That's big news coming from our bystander in chief.

Obama's go-to defense during times of scandal -- from the IRS targeting Tea Party groups to Fast and Furious gun running -- is he first learned about it from the news.

"I heard on the news about this story that Fast and Furious, where allegedly guns were being run into Mexico and ATF knew about it but didn't apprehend those who had sent it," Obama said in 2011. "Eric Holder has -- the attorney general has been very clear that he knew nothing about this. We had assigned an IG, inspector general, to investigate it."

Asked last year about the IRS scandal, Obama responded, "I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this," adding later, "I certainly did not know anything about the (IRS) report before the report had been leaked through the press."

Will Cain mentions the National Divorce.

He must be one of those Violent Extremists. Of course, when the left wing pushes this idea, as they did from 2015 to 2020, it's a defensible idea which informed Americans should seriously consider.

But when right-leaning people mention it, it's Violent Extremism.

but that's possibly incidental. it's also red meat for a very dispirited base

it's also mud all over PDJT, regardless of guilt

it's also dispiriting to all of us

it's also a distraction from things like the job market, inflation, etc etc ... all of "biden's successes"

at this point in the game, the Left is just tossing everything they can think of out there. it won't stop. this is just the start. it - I think - is a form of desperation. they don't honestly know what to do. because they're essentially not competent and have zero integrity plus no internal monologue that could possibly interfere with them just smearing their own shit all over this country.

Having some flunky like Reinhart sign off on the warrant and everyone in the regime doing The Who's on first act, "did you sign off on this, I didn't sign off on this, did you know about this, I didn't know about this" horseshit insulates and gives them plausible deniability. Any of the FIB actors that f'ed up of course will be shuffled as punishment and fail upward.

The Hunter Biden laptop has been a "ongoing investigation" that the FIB couldn't speak to for about 3 years now, and all they are doing is sitting on it.

I think the only value of keeping it an "active investigation" is so that they can refuse to answer any questions on it.

A groups of States might also agree to each create their own State militia. Not for the purpose of initiating hostilities against a federal government, but as a place for the resigned US officers to serve, and an honorable, alternative place for others to serve. This can also serve as a reservoir of military training for the time, God willing, when we have new national leadership.

I'd like to know why FBI forensics found nothing on the J6 pipe bombs. They said the explosive was "homemade gunpowder," so they must have examined the f'n things, (instead of just detonating them without forensics, as some sources claimed.)

So they did not find a single hair, or skin cell, or print, or even a so-called "signature profile" on them? There was no sticky tape in the construction? The kitchen timers were untraceable?

The Nazis has to have a major purge just to keep their ranks steady. It would not have worked if Hitler was absent as a unifying influence. As it was, the SS only came to power after years of unquestioned attack under Hitler's close guidance.

The Democrats don't have that. The Dore/ Greenwald faction already fucking hates the shitlibs, and their ranks are swelling daily. The shitlib faction is divided into fiefdoms based on whatever mediocrity they want to rise up with like ticks on a dog. But they hate sharing with each other, and Hillary Clinton would happily nuke Barack Obama's whole family for a shot at the brass ring.

Their plan to uncork genocidal hatred against normal white Americans isn't even going to keep the cartels and homeboys from attacking and looting the Outer Party in blue strongholds. Much less gain victory against Russia/ China, or even make Donald Trump less popular. They're so fucked, in a word.

236 I've told this story before, but when I was with the original Tea Party here in Savannah, we were hosting a rally on one of the historic squares. We wore Tea Party shirts and name badges (which was a BIG mistake).

During the rally, a young guy was moving through the crowd, and approached each of us on the committee and took shots of our faces with our name tags. We tried to chase him down to see who he was.

Right after that, my husband and I were flying somewhere, and for the first time ever, the TSA singled me out for a full-body pat-down. And that happened to me Every Single Time I Flew during Obama's entire presidency. Even when we had Pre-Check.

I'm convinced Barry's goons were keeping a list.

Very true. It's like turning the other cheek to win hearts and minds. It can work, but it can also fail. No one knows which outcome it will be. Tyranny or violent overthrow?

All that is known is that it is ugly, will continue to be ugly, and ugliness may worsen before it gets better and it may not get better.

261 Ace is on the right track. The "don't take their bait" advice is a spiral to nowhere.

In a recent application I had to submit in my profession re my licensure, I had to research my own criminal history over the last 20 years. I have one speeding ticket, more than 15-years ago. I had a few more driving violations before that, but that's the sum total of my lifetime.

I'm a father of multiple children. I'm "succesful" by any measure. My viewpoint on what's happening is the Mencken quote on this website. THe more the US Federal government cracks down, the more radical I become.

Should I "not take the bait" while they constrict their stranglehold on society? Should I "not the break the law," while they flagrantly violate it? Should I "hold the high ground" while they corrupt every federal institution and beaurocracy?

Honestly, I'm concerned we're even having this conversation. We are at war. We've been at war for YEARS already. Please stop the posts about "they would never accept this, if the roles were reversed."

Argentina in the 80's flipped from a political / military oligarchy to a military oligarchy, so a collapse to a manageable sized oligarchy is possible. And even then the laws of economics bit them on the butt, eventually. Posted by: Kindltot
----------------------
Show me an authoritarian government in the twentieth or later century and I will show you a government dependent on external support of money, food, etc. to stay in power. Argentina is a case in point, US govt helped keep that military oligarchy via aid and loans in power and Al Haig tried to keep that going even during the Falkland Islands. Venezuela is propped up by Cuba, China, and Russia. Iran by Russia, Norks by Chicom and Ukraine by US and Euroland. Russia itself is becoming increasingly dependent on China.

Oligarchies do stupid things for stupid reasons because they have shut off the public and private feedback functions of representative government. It can last for a few years but eventually people tire of it unless you have someone willing to decivilize a country like Pol Pot.

I am not encouraging action, just noting that controlled opposition has been in place for a while. However, those who detected setup w/J6 were so right.

Plus it just plays into the hard-starting trope of the left that the traditionals are the ones who you really have to watch for violence.

It's not like a conservative walked onto a Congressional baseball field trying to single-handedly change the composition of the House.

It's not like a conservative brought weapons and cased a Supreme Court Justice's house.

Yes, it was a type of conservative in the 90s who bombed abortion clinics, but they tried to make it property damage, only. And I'm told 1) that's not "violent" and 2) they have insurance for those things (*shakes head no*).

Companies still pay big money to advertise on those shows, not having learned yet how bad the investment is or how the audiences are dwindling rapidly.

Someday companies will grasp that advertising is almost always a fail but for now they spend billions a year on it.

He kept advancing on me after I told him to not come closer after I asked him who he was and what he wanted. He was all up in my face in my garage wanting to shake my hand and I backed off even further and told him to leave. He got pi$$ed and left mumbling something about murphy hybrid and they would mail it to me.

I'm sorry to tell everyone this, but the Republicans won't put a dent in the Deep State battleship in any investigations in 2023 and 2024. Every Deep Stater will play the Comey and Wray game, or the Lois Lerner "I take the 5th, as soon as I finish reading my statement denouncing this hearing."

The Republicans need to concentrate on going to the mattresses on budget and appropriation fights to corral and squeeze the Deep State. That will be an uphill battle, given the Senate 60-vote filibuster and Biden or someone's veto pen.

Step Two: in this budget, slash funding for CPB, effectively shutting it down.
Step Three: cut funding for FBI and reverse the lunatic overstaffing and budget for the IRS.
Step Four: Cut funding for all military operations currently active which have not been declared as actual wars.

====

Historically, Congress has the spending power. But, for the last 20 (or more?) years, ALL legislation has been of the ""comprehensive" variety. Giant legislative packages, that no nobody reads. Congress has completely abrogated their Constitutional role.

The way is was SUPPOSED to work, was that Congress would exercise it's "spending power" to deny funds to Agency X, if Agency X got out of line. But for last 20 years, every "Bill" passed by Senate or House is an "Omnibus" or "Comprehensive" Bill, where elected officials have to make binary decisions to "pass" or "oppose" Bills that touch and concern vast subject matter. It's corrupt, to the core.

395 > Just had some random guy get in my personal space. He pulled up in front of my house and the dogs went crazy. I went out the garage to meet him and ask what he was doing. He kept advancing on me after I told him to not come closer after I asked him who he was and what he wanted. He was all up in my face in my garage wanting to shake my hand and I backed off even further and told him to leave. He got pi$$ed and left mumbling something about murphy hybrid and they would mail it to me.

I can think of three somewhat probable possibilities:

1. He's a crazy person.
2. He had you confused with someone else.
3. He was probing you to see if you're a good prospect for robbery.

1 and 2 were unlikely. A crazy person that is not intent on causing harm does not close with a person like that. Most of them are very aware of personal space. 2, A person like that would not have mumbled or etc. A mistaken identity is I am sorry, I thought you were someone else.

Mumbling, etc. is designed specifically to draw you into their space for attack and is a distracting technique designed to lower your guard. Trying to grab a hand is also part of a robber's gameplan.

The one exception is if the person was very old and obviously suffering from advanced dementia. Sometimes they return to old residences or are simply trying to find such.

2. Another guy was driving an ATV up a hill that was too steep and it rolled over backwards (had a roll cage, so pretty sure he didn't get hurt).

Robbers are in fact stupid and quite often substance abusers that have rotted their brain to boot. Right now, the entire atmosphere of the media is criminals are just people trying to turn their life around. So, they are often encouraged to go places and commit crimes where normally they would shear off.

Expect more of this. A common weapon is a long shank screwdriver that can be used for stabbing or prying to get into somewhere they should not be. Easy to discard and generally not covered by laws regarding tools of burglary.

I doubt that. Did he have a vehicle? Offer to leave a business card? Etc. Most cities and suburbs require door to door solicitors to have approved soliciting licenses.

People wandering around in a neighborhood like that are often scoping places out for burglary or are scammers like the Tinkers.

You did note that you had the biggest house on the block which is often a target--big house--more stuff to steal and he headed to you first. If you are curious, check around your driveway exit along the stranger's path. Sometimes, they will leave something as a marker for themselves or others to find the place later. Lots of automobile breakins recently to find guns, expensive sunglasses, cash, etc. and so on left in cars. In and out in about 60 seconds or so.

465 My mother became suspicious about door-to-door salesmen that didn't seem quite right. She asked a deputy who lives down their street about it. He said a very common way for theives to case a house is to pose as salesmen.

466 Turned out he was a solar panel salesman that had been getting dozens of go away conversations in the neighborhood. Still does not excuse what he did to me though.

Okay, that changes things a bit that he has been going around but given no car, business cards, no other indication to show what he actually does, he is either a scammer or might be a scout. Call up your local government and warn them he is about as most governments except in rural areas require commercial door to door solicitors to actually have a license and id.

That mode of operation is also common to Tinkers (scammers in home improvement generally) but never seen that applied to solar cells. Possible that given Texas problems in power generation, Tinkers have got themselves a new scam.

468 Mop-Top may not have lied. They could put the newbies to work doing the random audits and investigating simple business tax evasion stuff. Not auditing the under $400K masses. They will assign the current, experienced employees to squeezing that group.

Both the tax system and the justice system are on a cliff. The tax system now relies on people filing via computer--if they filed via paper returns, the system would simply stop working. The justice system relies on plea bargains--no plea bargains--the system stops working. Both require voluntary compliance with norms but both are also at risk from malicious compliance with each and every foot dragging rule and law.

470 LOL, @ LEGALINSURECTION "Following the FBI raid of Donald Trump’s Florida home, some people on the left have decided that the word "raid" is too harsh and makes them sound like the authoritarians they are, so they want to change it."

PEOPLE ! IT WAS NOT A RAID, THEY JUST WANTED TO USE THE JOHN AND ACCIDENTALLY WENT THROUGH STUFF, AND MELANIA'S UNDERPANTS DRAWER. MAYBE TOOK A BOX OR TWO, THAT IS ALL ! IT WAS ALL ROUTINE , FOOLS !

I called the non emergency number to the Town police and let them know my issue. The dispatcher said she would let everyone know to keep an eye out for this guy.


No cards, no ID and no name. Shame I did not think to get a license plate number.

475 Russiagate, 2020 Election, Whitmer fake kidnapping, dead unarmed protestors, people kept without trial for over a year, all provocations. Do nothing and keep your head down.

But nooooo, Sam Houston had to play diplomat.

477 To repeat myself: the crackdown is coming regardless of what we do. When do we respond to the provocations? How soon before they load us on the trains to the happy fun camps would be prudent?

Posted by: butch at August 10, 2022 07:21 PM (ImwsV)

478 C'mon, people! This is all just a simple misunderstanding. The whole Mar-a-Lago thing? It was an innocent little panty raid. The boys needed to blow off some steam so we decided to get a pair of Melania's unmentionables to tack up on the walls at Hoover House. Everybody chill already!

Posted by: FBI Agent Douglas C. Niedermeyer at August 10, 2022 07:51 PM (Rewwz)

479 I guess it's "better safe than sorry" but it seems like everytime the left breaks the law, or use the government to go after innocent citizens who disagree with them, were told "well don't overreact or actually do anything" and they'll be saying this as we're all jailed or taken to a field and shot, and they'll use that to fund raise why they need money to stop ther government, which they never do.

If we're going to treat the left the same way, and actually jail those who commit crimes, then sure we should standby and wait, but even Trump was a coward when it came to holding thr left accountable, he let Antifa do whatever they want without consequence.

Posted by: Rbastid at August 10, 2022 08:07 PM (0Rcms)

480 Where is the separating line between "not overreacting to provocation" and "allowing your enemies to do whatever they want"?

Frankly, I've come around to the opinion that such advice is always the latter at this point, even when sincerely well-intentioned (read: a minority of the people saying it). If your enemies are trying to bait some response to use as tissue-thin pretense for more illegal action, they will just come up with another pretense after you "don't overreact". End result? They still do whatever they wanted to do, but you allowed them to inflict other pain besides.

482 Pearl Harbor-this is provocation, don't take the bait.

Here's to all those feeding the crocodile.

As Viva Frei points out: It was the criminal Obama's habit of claiming that he only found out about every sleazy thing he did "from the newspapers, same as you did."

Of course. He was too busy jerking off to videos of himself giving speeches to know what was going on.

484 Okay not yet but . . . what does this blog's masthead mean? And what did Jefferson mean when he talked about the blood of patriots and tyrants. Okay not yet but . . . there are a set of circumstances under which "your terms are acceptable" is the right answer, and if those circumstances arise, I hope we are ready to give it.

485 If the Spirit of 1776 and revolutionary war imagery are warning signs, then the National Society Daughter of the American Revolution is an extremist militia group.

A bunch of little old ladies focusing on historic preservation, education and patriotism - c'mon.
