When The FBI Does It, That Means That It’s Not Illegal

Today’s conspiracy theory is tomorrow’s spoiler alert. (Sorry, link fixed).

As scores of Proud Boys made their way, chanting and shouting, toward the Capitol on Jan. 6, one member of the far-right group was busy texting a real-time account of the march.

The recipient was his F.B.I. handler. […]

…the records, and information from two people familiar with the matter, suggest that federal law enforcement had a far greater visibility into the assault on the Capitol, even as it was taking place, than was previously known.

At the same time, the new information is likely to complicate the government’s efforts to prove the high-profile conspiracy charges it has brought against several members of the Proud Boys.

Hey, what about that pipe bomber? Did they ever catch him?

  1. The Reichstag fire updated by “Mein GESTAPO” or “Mein FBI” as the case may be… 🙂

  2. The Democrats are still trying to throw President Trump in jail as well.
    They expect Jobama to authorize access to privileged information to be made public in their ongoing witch hunt.

  3. One day we’ll find out what the FBI really knew about 9/11 in advance—and why they did exactly nothing to stop it.

    9/11 gave W an excuse to guarantee that cheap oil would flow unimpeded to the globalists’ new enterprises in China—and that the Zionists, not Islam, China or global finance, would get the blame. The trick was to make it look good on TV.

    January 6 was staged, because of course it was. And once again, Trump and the Zionists are being blamed for attempting to destroy the republic, not China or Wall Street.

    Had it been a spontaneous attempt by the American people to save their President and their country, not whipped up by agents provocateurs, the “rioters” would have been massacred before they got near anyone important.

    The Jews would have been blamed for that too.

  4. Point of order.
    Can someone please explain to New York Slimes that Proud Boys are not “far right” as the phrase “far right” has no meaning. In the future please substitute “people we disagree with” for “far right”. Thank you.

      1. What “then”? There is no “then” you worthless demagogue.
        “Far left” is or isn’t, independent of “far right” existing or not.
        “Far right” no longer has any meaning. It means anyone who dares to protest leftist orthodoxy.
        As for “far left” being there or not. If you refer to scum like Antifa as “far left” you also miss the point as they are nearly universally supported by, mainstream left.
        Now FOAD.

          1. I am not going to be dumbing down my answers or you. If any of the words above have too many syllables try sounding them out.

          2. ^ “for ” not “or” of course.

            Further dumbing you down is not possible as your stupid has already reached the limit of one UnMe.

          3. Enema69 aka GYN for example ranks at 1 to 2 UnMes depending on the amount of opiats in his system. Most of the time he is at 1 (above) but when his balance is right, he can be quite funny.

  5. Of the several thousand people involved in the Jan 6th Capitol mob, what percentage do you think were secret FBI and/or BLM/Antifa members? 1%? 10%? 99.9%?

    1. “Protest” not “mob”. “Mob” is best used when describing looters and arsonists like BLM and Antifa.

      1. Sorry, my mistake.

        Of the several thousand people involved in the Jan 6th Capitol protest plus optional self-guided tour of the Capitol Building, what percentage do you think were secret FBI and/or BLM/Antifa members? 1%? 10%? 99.9%?


        1. Yes better. The answer is “I have no idea”. I suspect Antifa were overrepresented among the violent ones and underrepresented among the peaceful. Also, I suspect FBI were overrepresented among the front line organizers.

          Given that both ANTIFA and FBI acted in secret exact percentages cannot be available to anyone (with the possible exception of FBI).

        2. Ted. Look up the name “Sullivan” in relation to Jan 6.

          Might give you a proper perspective of the day.

          1. Yeah, I’m familiar with John Sullivan. He’s been mentioned here and elsewhere, a lot. He’s long been disavowed by BLM (months before Jan 6/01), has no confirmed affiliations with antifa, and seems like he’s just in it for himself.

            Anyway, the ‘Antifa false flag’ theory seems to hinge on this one identified guy, from a sea of thousands, plus some really weak arguments along the lines of “unidentified person wearing black clothes, just like BLM protesters do”.

          2. Bullshit. BLM is a terrorist organization like HAMAS or IRA, they have their ostentatiously peaceful (but not really) wing, for example that twitter account, and their radical violent wing with creatures like Sullivan. They’re part of the same organism. One part terrorizes the other cries foul and “it wasn’t us”. Lather, rice, repeat.

        3. Why ask the question when you have all the answers, Teddy? Frankly, I’m surprised you bother with us mere mortals.

  6. You don’t think that the FBI operatives have any incentive to give FRIGHTENING yet FALSE reports? If I were a Juror or Judge, I’d discount 95% of the operatives testimony
