No Wray of Hope

Foreign terrorists, including ISIS, al-Qaida and their adherents, have renewed calls for attacks against Jewish communities here in the United States and across the West,” Christopher Wray warned on Tuesday. The FBI boss also cited threats from Russia, Iran, North Korea and China, which is “throwing its whole government at undermining the security and economy of the rule-of-law world.” But it wasn’t just about foreign threats.

Wray “blasted House Republicans proposed $500 million cut to the FBI budget,” which he said “ultimately hurts the American people in the neighborhoods.” The FBI boss also “offered a full-throated defense of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act,” which authorizes warrantless surveillance, and is now up for renewal. As the people might recall, the FBI has exploited FISA to spy on Americans, which Wray, a Comey crony, strongly denied.

The FBI failed to prevent Islamic terrorists attacks on 9/11, at Fort Hood (2009), the Boston Marathon (2013), San Bernardino (2015), Orlando (2016), and played no part in the takedown of the terrorists. So the bureau does not protect the American people in those neighborhoods.

Wray’s boss, Joe Biden, believes the Chinese are “not bad folks” and not even competition for the United States. The Delaware Democrat lets China’s Communist regime fly surveillance balloons over American military bases. According to Wray, the USA is part of the “rule-of-law world,” but on his first day in office Joe Biden canceled U.S. immigration law. On his watch, some eight million illegals have entered the country with no background checks, health safeguards or job prospects.

Biden’s FBI boss has kept rather quiet about any threats these millions might pose. On the other hand, the bureau makes no secret that Trump supporters are a primary target. For Biden’s FBI, pro-life activists and peacefully protesting parents are domestic terrorists, violent extremists and such. Last year the FBI shot dead Craig Robertson, a 75-year-old woodworker, for things he had allegedly posted on line, and at this writing there has been no independent investigation.

A bust at fighting actual terrorism, the FBI now functions as Joe Biden’s Geheime Staatspolizei. As former FBI man David J. Baldovin explains, that comparison does not exhaust the possibilities. So as inspector Claude Lebel (Michael Lonsdale) told Madame de Montpellier (Delphine Seyrig) in The Day of the Jackal, “be in no doubt as to the seriousness of your position.”
