How The FBI Become Irrelevant
[Comments enabled]  

It just happened folks.

The FBI has apparently declared that the Scalise shooting (at the baseball park) was spontaneous and not premeditated.

This, despite the fact that they found multiple pictures of the ball field in his possession.

They have also declared that he had no particular target in mind.

This, despite the fact that he had a list of Congresspeople on him at the time he committed the offense.

They have further declared that they have no particular motive either.

This, despite the reported fact that he asked one of the people there whether it was Republicans or Democrats practicing, and only after hearing it was Republicans did he go retrieve his guns and start shooting.

Oh, and this "random", "no known motive" nutbag (at least the last word is accurate) traveled the better part of 1,000 miles in a van from Illinois to Washington DC, rented a storage locker in which he deposited a nice big cache of rounds for his weapons, and then did all of the above.

This is the same FBI, I remind you, that had a Director (since fired) who went on national television and laid out every element of a criminal statute being violated by one Hillary Clinton and then proclaimed that "no reasonable prosecutor would bring the case."

I'm not sure if it was the Hillary thing, or even the 9/11 thing where the ragheads who would go on to blow up 3,000 Americans were called in by an astute citizen who thought it was damn odd they were paying in cash for simulator time and didn't want to know how to land.  After all, we were told, 9/11 was a "complex plot" with "lots of moving parts", especially the ones that were allowed to keep moving and leave the country for their native (guess which one) nation after it happened by one President Bush.

But this, well, it's just a bit beyond belief, you see.

You have a guy who drives halfway across the nation, rents a storage locker, searches on the Internet for where a 2017 GOP convention might be held, takes pictures of the very ball field where he commits his assault, has a list containing the names of six members of Congress on his person and then to put a cherry on top of all of it directly inquires of a passerby whether it's actually Republicans on that field before he starts shooting -- and is told "yes."

This, my friends, is all consistent with a random, no-notice and no-motive shooting "incident" -- not a plotted, and carried out, act of terrorism against Republicans by someone who in fact belonged to a Facebook group called "Terminate Republicans".

What. In. The. Wild. Blue. ****?!

It's bad enough when "they" give the muzzies an auto-pass even when they're screaming "allahu ackbar," but SERIOUSLY? This has become a systemic issue... if it's the "leadership," fire everyone above agent status and promote based on merit. If it's down through the agents, well, gut the damn agency and create something new. I'm at a loss - a real loss here. It sounds like an Onion article, if the Onion wasn't a libtard commie site.

We're ****ed. Where's Henry Bowman when you need him?

Seriously...all he was missing was a neon sign saying 'I'm here to kill Republicans and here's why'. dog has better investigative skills than this FBI.

If it looks like dog ****, smells like dog ****, and sounded like dog **** coming out of my dog's ass, then I don't need to taste it also to determine if it's actually dog ****. What more evidence did they need?

It's become quite obvious over the last couple of decades that the FBI is no longer a law enforcement organization, but instead is a political organization with guns and the ability to put you in jail... or not, depending on the politics of the situation.

It's far beyond a systemic issue and now is simply a ****ing joke. Still a quite scary joke, due to those pesky "throw you in jail" or "shoot you" issues, but a joke none the less.

It's justifiably immoral to deal morally with an immoral entity.

I'd love to say that I'm shocked or surprised, but since James Comey officially declared the rule of law dead on public television on July 2016 I can't hold any expectation of real investigative work or justice. Who would want to waste their time doing a proper investigation when they know there is no point at the start. As much as I'd like to hold on to hope, the realist in me knows that I shouldn't hold my breath as that would be a fatal exercise. It's better to quietly prepare for the worse while praying for the best to keep yourself and yours as safe as possible as insuring such safety is now entirely our own individual responsibility. We're on our own folks.

This is just a big Green Light to the extreme elements in AntiFa and Similar groups.

If you refuse to acknowledge the problem, you are giving tacit approval.

Now it is merely a matter of mission planning to avoid getting caught in the act and going underground to drop off of the radar as much as possible.
Better have an affirmative alibi because there will certainly be some patsies set up to take the fall.

It is as if they want violence but never expect to be in the crosshair themselves.

It is insanity to a normal person.
They aren't normal.

1) Large uproar over the shooting of a Democratic congresswoman in Arizona.
2) Little uproar over the shooting of multiple Republicans in D.C.
3) Open season on Republicans with no bag limit?

Every person responsible for that report needs to be fired now starting with the agencies' directors by Trump.

It is obvious obfuscation of facts and lies. Where are the gutless Republican elected to pursue this matter? Cricket's chirping is all I hear. Where's that so called bipartisan support for justice -nothing but coyote calls.

If these morons think the other party doesn't want them dead they are fools or to compromised themselves to speak out.

I'm going to start carrying multiple weapons now. Selective law enforcement is a criminal enterprise.

The FBI really has gone down hill. As a kid a I remember watching the old TV show in the 1960's the FBI with Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.. It was a showcase show for the bureau and well done, produced by the great Quinn Martin.

Now look at it a loser bureau with no pride, direction, or Balls anymore.
Their call on this case is insane.

Congress now wants a bill for any member to be able CCP or Open Carry nation wide, well thats fine. What about the rest of us?????????
