Opinion written by George McClellan:
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”— Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States.
My many years in federal law enforcement, including retirement as a special agent from another law enforcement agency, has left me with enough contacts in the know about what’s happening in the FBI as to be alarmed enough to make comment. Teddy Roosevelt was right!
The silence is deafening but, an earthquake is brewing in the FBI. Director Comey alone, has brought the FBI into the murky world of political favoritism, matched only by the Supreme Courts Chief Judas, John Robert’s dumb decision on the constitutionally of Obamacare. Comey has cast a long shadow of doubt over the FBI’s future product. Comey must believe the American people are simpletons when he publicly announced no case against Hillary Clintons crimes. Well, Comey and Clinton have been close friends since the Watergate days. What hold does the odious Clinton organization have on James Comey? Does this long association have anything to do with Comey’s failure to recommend Clinton’s investigation for prosecution?
If a highly trusted agency like the FBI, which has spent years protecting its reputation for the All American principles of professionalism, competency and trust, to lose all that by the actions of its top executive, is to all but destroy that agency’s future effectiveness, especially in the face of growing Islamic terrorism. If the FBI loses the faith of the people its serves, what’s next, a new federal agency designed under the National Socialist model of the 1930’s and 40’s, i.e.: a new Gestapo? That’s what Obama would like to have. Saul Alinsky’s plan called for the destruction of America’s institutions, especially the Church and the FBI. Is Comey a sleeper agent for Progressivism’s brand of Socialism?
Here’s the problem. Director Comey was appointed for a ten year, non negotiable term as Director of the FBI. But, he is not one of us. He does not come out of any law enforcement agency. He has no street credentials, he has made no apprehensions, he has conducted no crime scenes or felony interrogations. He is a Dept. of Justice lawyer whose job it was was to receive the product of federal investigators and convict criminals in a court of law.
Having a non-company agent, one who has not come up through the ranks by hard work, smarts and leadership, is anathema to most agency employees. The agency I worked for, the NCIS, suffered that indignity recently when an incompetent, failed ATF agent (think Fast and Furious), no longer wanted by any reputable agency, and never prosecuted, was appointed to be Director of the NCIS. He did not have the approval of the NCIS Special Agent Corps. Comey came to the FBI with an untainted reputation for honesty and getting the job down, which he has now ruined. The new question is, can a political lawyer be trusted?
Comey, with his ten year, no fire contract, was apparently inserted into the FBI’s Directorship, like a Trojan Horse operative, to protect the Democrat Party when protection was needed. Then, he was a qualified top ranked DOJ Lawyer with years of experience prosecuting FBI cases. Word on the street now is that the FBI agent Corps. is totally disgusted with the director, on account of his obvious duplicity. If trust of the Agent Corps is gone, then Comey must resign. If he wants to retain any figment of a once good reputation he must resign immediately.
Remember, freedom is the goal the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (09 Sept 2016)
