An institution that needs to be taken down brick by brick
'The FBI As An Institution Should Be Taken Down Brick By Brick By Oppressive Brick': Clay Higgins



Yesterday the House Committee on Homeland Security, led by Chairman Mark E. Green, MD (R-TN), conducted a hearing to investigate the possible terrorist threats to the nation posed by Joe Biden's open border policy. On the hot seat were all the deep state leaders:  DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and National Counterterrorism Center Director Christine Abizaid. 

A transcript of the testimony can be found here:

FBI Director Wray Confirms the Border Crisis Poses Major Homeland Security Threat, DHS Secretary Mayorkas Stonewalls – Committee on Homeland Security (house.gov)

In his closing remarks,  Chairman Green  highlighted the policy crisis under the Biden administration:
 
“This migration crisis is a self-inflicted crisis—one we created by the change in our policy, and it has put Americans at increased risk, as you’ve acknowledged. … These catch-and-release policies that Mr. Mayorkas have implemented are the cause of the problem. You have to ask yourself, with the way that these catch-and-release policies are working now…If you get to come into the country, why wouldn’t you just turn yourself into Border Patrol? Why would somebody even go around Border Patrol now when you’re going to come in, get paroled, and get into the country? Well, it’s because they don’t want to be caught. And that scares us even more considering it’s [nearly] two million people.”

In a separate hearing involving the FBI's plan to move its HQ, Rep Clay Higgins who is calling for the complete rebuilding of an agency that has become a political weapon for the democrat party, summed up the feelings of many Americans:




In other news:

Hundreds of “violent” anti-Israel protesters clashed with Capitol Police in Washington Wednesday evening during a rally outside the Democratic National Committee headquarters, prompting its evacuation.

Video shows  dozens of officers in riot gear desperately pushing back the unruly protesters as they charged toward the building at Canal Street and Ivy Street SE.

The demonstrators — many wearing black shirts that read “Cease Fire Now” — were also seen trying to grab hold of metal barricades as the officers rushed in to make arrests.

About 150 people were “illegally and violently protesting” outside the office, Capitol Police  wrote on X.

The department said the protesters deliberately attacked its officers, leaving several injured.

“Tonight 6 officers were treated for injuries – ranging from minor cuts to being pepper sprayed to being punched. One person has been arrested for assault on an officer. We appreciate our officers who kept these illegal & violent protesters back & protected everyone in the area,” Capitol Police said in a follow-up tweet.

I wonder how many of the violent protestors will actually be charged with anything?

Please note the contrast with the very peaceful march for Israel the other day.


The left's beloved leader did it again:

WOODSIDE, California (Reuters) -U.S. President Joe Biden said on Wednesday he had not changed his view that Chinese President Xi Jinping was effectively a dictator, a comment likely to land with a thud in Beijing after the two leaders held straightforward summit talks.

Biden held a solo news conference after four hours of talks with Xi on the outskirts of San Francisco. At the end of the news conference, he was asked whether he still held the view that Xi was a dictator, something he said in June.

"Look, he is. He's a dictator in the sense that he's a guy who runs a country that is a communist country that's based on a form of government totally different than ours," Biden said.

Biden's Secretary of State Antony Blinken cringed when Biden said it.

Joe did it to himself for a change.

Good morning

We also learned yesterday that there is one Real Estate developer in NYC that stands out above all the rest. He is known as an “artist of real estate.”

Another day in the era of the left.

Hey, you took my advice!  You checked out that freakshow Clay Higgins like I told you to.   Good job!

So you did know what I was talking about when you said you didn't.  I'm shocked.

This proves that you believe his whackjob conspiracy theory.

10  The   Lord   said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.   11  Now you are under a curse   and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.   12  When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you.   You will be a restless wanderer   on the earth.”

13  Cain said to the   Lord , “My punishment is more than I can bear.   14  Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence;   I will be a restless wanderer on the earth,   and whoever finds me will kill me.”

15  But the   Lord   said to him, “Not so [ a ] ; anyone who kills Cain   will suffer vengeance   seven times over.” Then the   Lord   put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him.   16  So Cain went out from the   Lord ’s presence   and lived in the land of Nod, [ b ]   east of Eden.

The gunman who  killed Texas SWAT Officer Jorge Pastore  in a shootout that also left two hostages dead was wearing body armor and night vision goggles — and was on the FBI’s terror watchlist, according to reports.

A search warrant for the suspect’s south Austin home — the scene of Saturday’s deadly shootout — unearthed bomb-making materials inside, calling for help from the FBI’s Evidence Recovery Team,  according to KXAN .

“Cutting instruments, body armor and any tactical gear to include firearms were all said to be worn or used by the suspect,” reads the warrant, which noted that it’s “not uncommon for people with a gun, body armor or night vision to make homemade explosives.”

Neither the suspect nor the dead hostages had been officially identified as of early Wednesday.

I wasnt familiar with the name Clay Higgins, although I knew that if he was featured in this column he is likely a far right wing nut. 

So I looked up Higgins positions -

Higgins is  anti-abortion  and has compared abortion to  the Holocaust .

 He has appeared at rallies hosted by the  Oath Keepers  and publicly praised the  Three Percenters , militia groups that advocate violent action against the United States government.  In 2020, he posted on Facebook that he would "drop 10 of you where you stand", suggesting that he would use a gun to "end" the lives of protesters from a left-wing group who were also armed.

Higgins opposes  same-sex marriage . He says he believes that states should have the right to ban same-sex marriage, contrary to the Supreme Court's ruling in  Obergefell v. Hodges .

Higgins has promoted himself and spoken at rallies by anti-government militia groups. When informed that a Black militia group protesting police brutality might show up at a protest, however, he suggested on Facebook in September 2020 that he would shoot them ("drop any 10 of you where you stand").

In December 2020, Higgins was one of 126 Republican members of the  House of Representatives  to sign an  amicus brief  in support of  Texas v. Pennsylvania , a lawsuit filed at the  United States Supreme Court  contesting the results of the  2020 presidential election , in which  Joe Biden  defeated incumbent  Donald Trump . The Supreme Court declined to hear the case on the basis that Texas lacked  standing  under  Article III of the Constitution  to challenge the results of an election held by another state.

During the  COVID-19 pandemic , Higgins was an outspoken skeptic, and asserted that the  Chinese Communist Party  had created the disease as  biological warfare .

Wikiwand is simply a more reader friendly version of wikipedia, and it also has the option to listen to the article. 

The text is exactly the same as the original wikipedia version. 

There are footnotes to all of this .

And you know that virtually anyone can write on Wikipedia.

Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger has warned that the website can no longer be trusted — insisting it is now just “propaganda” for the left-leaning “establishment.”

Sanger  told UnHerd’s Lockdown TV  Wednesday that he started the “encyclopedia of opinion” in 2001 purely on the basis it would offer true neutrality and offer “multiple points of view” on “hot button issues.”

Now, he insisted, conservative voices are “sternly warned if not kicked out” if they try to add a different take on establishment views — which Sanger deemed “propaganda.”

In a letter to chairman Kentucky Rep. James Comer, ranking Democrat Jamie Raskin urged all Republicans to join committee   Democrats   in signing a draft pledge denouncing "white nationalism and white supremacy," as well the use of related conspiracy theories, including the "Great Replacement" theory during committee hearings. A spokesperson for the committee Republicans said the letter was an attempt to "distract" from the Biden administration's record on border crossings.

This is not the first time that Republicans have been urged to denounce white supremacy. In 2022, when Democrats were in control of the House, a resolution was brought forward in the wake of a racist   mass shooting in Buffalo , New York, to condemn "in strongest terms" the great replacement theory, a far-right claim that white Americans are purposely   being replaced as the dominant race   in the country by minorities and immigrants for political gain.

Clay Higgins record and actions are well documented outside of wikipedia. 

He's a far right extremist and I would guess he is also a white supremacist. 

I watched the Forbes video. Its hard to imagine a more unpleasant person. 

What is inexplicable is why you keep parading people like this into your articles.

So where he was mistaken in this is he left off Fauci and the Obama administration funding gain of function for Covid, or is the left still denying that too?

higgins is the latest republican contender in the '20 election and J6 denial olympics. although I support reintegrating the mentally challenged into society, it shouldn't involve serving in a government capacity that requires any critical thinking, not demonstrated by clay higgins. the author promotes the idea of dismantling the very institutions that have proven to be a threat to the criminally indicted leader of his party. the very institutions designed to thwart the type of actions he himself has been accused of, and indicted for prosecution. the party calling for the elimination of those gov't institutions that would create the greatest obstacles in achieving the goals of those that aspire to a dictatorial theocracy as the best form of gov't for americans, the republican party. I also find it very amusing that the party calling for the dismantling of gov't institutions are in the process of self destruction themselves.

goober inbreeding in the post-confederate south is such a tragedy...

I wonder how many of the violent protestors will actually be charged with anything?

As far as I know, only 1 was arrested. The rest of the 150 just rioted by punching the cops and spraying pepper spray on them. 

Please note the contrast with the very peaceful march for Israel the other day.

150 violent pro-Hamas Democrat Socialists of America rioters who caused lockdowns of the DNC office and the US Capitol Building

vs.

Nearly 300,000 pro-Israel, pro-America, pro-peace peaceful protesters
