The FBI Admits Its Primary Focus Is "Not" Law Enforcement

Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Recently, the FBI made a significant change to its self-proclaimed primary focus in its fact sheet from “law enforcement” to “national security.” This change merely confirms what I and countless others have claimed to be true for quite some time. That the entire regulatory, security and intelligence apparatus of these United States has been redirected away from protecting the Constitution and the rule of law, toward a narrow focus on protecting the economic and social positions of the oligarch class at all costs under the guise of a “war on terror.” We have seen many signs of cronyism at the FBI for decades now, something most accurately pointed out in the priceless image “All My Heroes Have FBI Files.”

While this change to the FBI fact sheet is just confirmation of something we already knew, it’s still mind-boggling to see it shoved right in our faces:

Screen Shot 2014-01-06 at 2.52.09 PM

TechDirt covered this story well. Here are some excerpts:

A couple years ago, it was revealed that the FBI noted in one of its “counterterrorism training manuals” that FBI agents could “bend or suspend the law and impinge upon the freedoms of others,” which seemed kind of odd for a government agency who claimed its “primary function” was “law enforcement.” You’d think that playing by the rules would be kind of important. However, as John Hudson at Foreign Policy has noted, at some point last summer, the FBI quietly changed its fact sheet, so that it no longer says that “law enforcement” is its primary function, replacing it with “national security.”


Of course, I thought we already had a “national security” agency — known as the “National Security Agency.” Of course, while this may seem like a minor change, as the article notes, it is the reality behind the scenes. The FBI massively beefed up resources focused on “counterterrorism” and… then let all sorts of other crimes slide. Including crimes much more likely to impact Americans, like financial/white collar fraud.


So… what has the FBI been doing? Well, every time we hear anything about the FBI and counterterrorism, it seems to be a case where the FBI has been spending a ton of resources to concoct completely made up terrorism plots, duping some hapless, totally unconnected person into taking part in this “plot” then arresting him with big bogus headlines about how they “stopped” a terrorist plot that wouldn’t have even existed if the FBI hadn’t set it up in the first place. And this is not something that the FBI has just done a couple times. It’s happened  over  and  over  and over  and  over  and  over  and  over  and  over  and  over  and  over  and  over  and  over  and  over again. And those are just the stories that we wrote about that I can find in a quick search. I’m pretty sure there are a bunch more stories that we wrote about, let alone that have happened.


All of these efforts to stop their own damn “plots” screams of an agency that feels it needs to “do something” when there’s really nothing to be done. Thousands of agents were reassigned from stopping real criminals to “counterterrorism” and when they found there were basically no terrorists around, they just started making their own in order to feel like they were doing something… and to have headlines to appease people upstairs. The government seems to have gone collectively insane when it comes to anything related to “terrorism.”

Once again ladies and and gentlemen: USA! USA!

When I rent a DVD, I now see three Federal warnings about copying same.   FBI was the original.  Then Homeland Security got in the act.  I can't remember the third,  but I feel safer.

Listen silly, "laws" are gone.  They have been gone for a long time now.

I think "Law" has always been something, throughout history, whch has applied only to the mundanes, and has always served its role as control mechanism for keeping the mundanes in line, along with religion and morality.  These things quite obviously do not apply to those at the top, nor to their enforcers.  But that fact has always been mostly hidden from the mundanes, whose lives consist of work, going to church, loving their children, and paying taxes to keep the whole phony thing on its feet.

The information revolution has been like the invention of the printing press.  Now it is plain, for anyone who cares to see, to see that corruption, bribery, scandal, greed and violence are rampant at the top levels of government.  It has become so obvious, in fact, that the efforts to conceal it have all but stopped.  Now in its place we see the hubris of the dare for us to try to do something about it.

Many mundanes, most in fact, trapped in their morality, still cannot conceive of just how greedy, amoral, and corrupt the politicians are.  It is inconceivable to them.  Ask them.  I have.  They have a clawing sense that something is desperately, desperately wrong, but, like all of us, they see the world through the lens of our own experience, beliefs and morality, and that worldview, so carefully inculcated by the system, quite literally prevents them from seeing they are slaves.

4 months before September 11 2001 Pearl Harbor was released.  how convenient.

The Bush presidency might well be the Jerry Bruckheimer presidency -- after the hugely successful producer of ''Armageddon,'' ''Black Hawk Down'' and ''Top Gun,'' the movie re-enacted by Mr. Bush in his flyboy landing on the Abraham Lincoln. Mr. Bruckheimer has enjoyed a happy partnership with the Donald Rumsfeld Pentagon from the get-go. While the nation and the administration snoozed in the late spring of 2001, unaware that the next Pearl Harbor was less than four months away, the gala premiere party for Bruckheimer's summer extravaganza, ''Pearl Harbor,'' took place on the aircraft carrier U.S.S. John C. Stennis, which had been sent from San Diego to Hawaii for the festivities.

DSM-5 is already out, but maybe you can get it in DSM-6.

Wed, 01/08/2014 - 01:12 | 4310620 Musashi Miyamoto

Where to start?....

Dr. Allen Frances writes that the American Psychiatric Association approval of the 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual this past weekend marks “a sad day for psychiatry.“ Frances, psychiatry professor emeritus at Duke, chaired the DSM-4 task force.

He lists the top ten changes that he says should be ignored:

“I would suggest that clinicians not follow these at all (or, at the very least, use them with extreme caution and attention to their risks); that potential patients be deeply skeptical, especially if the proposed diagnosis is being used as a rationale for prescribing medication for you or for your child; and that payers question whether some of these are suitable for reimbursement. My goal is to minimize the harm that may otherwise be done by unnecessary obedience to unwise and arbitrary DSM 5 decisions.

1) Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder: DSM 5 will turn temper tantrums into a mental disorder- a puzzling decision based on the work of only one research group. We have no idea whatever how this untested new diagnosis will play out in real life practice settings, but my fear is that it will exacerbate, not relieve, the already excessive and inappropriate use of medication in young children. During the past two decades, child psychiatry has already provoked three fads- a tripling of Attention Deficit Disorder, a more than twenty-times increase in Autistic Disorder, and a forty-times increase in childhood Bipolar Disorder. The field should have felt chastened by this sorry track record and should engage itself now in the crucial task of educating practitioners and the public about the difficulty of accurately diagnosing children and the risks of over- medicating them. DSM 5 should not be adding a new disorder likely to result in a new fad and even more inappropriate medication use in vulnerable children.

2) Normal grief will become Major Depressive Disorder, thus medicalizing and trivializing our expectable and necessary emotional reactions to the loss of a loved one and substituting pills and superficial medical rituals for the deep consolations of family, friends, religion, and the resiliency that comes with time and the acceptance of the limitations of life.

3) The everyday forgetting characteristic of old age will now be misdiagnosed as Minor Neurocognitive Disorder, creating a huge false positive population of people who are not at special risk for dementia. Since there is no effective treatment for this ‘condition’ (or for dementia), the label provides absolutely no benefit (while creating great anxiety) even for those at true risk for later developing dementia. It is a dead loss for the many who will be mislabeled.

4) DSM 5 will likely trigger a fad of Adult Attention Deficit Disorder leading to widespread misuse of stimulant drugs for performance enhancement and recreation and contributing to the already large illegal secondary market in diverted prescription drugs.

5) Excessive eating 12 times in 3 months is no longer just a manifestation of gluttony and the easy availability of really great tasting food. DSM 5 has instead turned it into a psychiatric illness called Binge Eating Disorder.

6) The changes in the DSM 5 definition of Autism will result in lowered rates- 10% according to estimates by the DSM 5 work group, perhaps 50% according to outside research groups. This reduction can be seen as beneficial in the sense that the diagnosis of Autism will be more accurate and specific- but advocates understandably fear a disruption in needed school services. Here the DSM 5 problem is not so much a bad decision, but the misleading promises that it will have no impact on rates of disorder or of service delivery. School services should be tied more to educational need, less to a controversial psychiatric diagnosis created for clinical (not educational) purposes and whose rate is so sensitive to small changes in definition and assessment.

7) First time substance abusers will be lumped in definitionally in with hard core addicts despite their very different treatment needs and prognosis and the stigma this will cause.

8) DSM 5 has created a slippery slope by introducing the concept of Behavioral Addictions that eventually can spread to make a mental disorder of everything we like to do a lot. Watch out for careless overdiagnosis of internet and sex addiction and the development of lucrative treatment programs to exploit these new markets.

9) DSM 5 obscures the already fuzzy boundary been Generalized Anxiety Disorder and the worries of everyday life. Small changes in definition can create millions of anxious new ‘patients’ and expand the already widespread practice of inappropriately prescribing addicting anti-anxiety medications.

10) DSM 5 has opened the gate even further to the already existing problem of misdiagnosis of PTSD in forensic settings.”

You got it Chumba. Correlation is NOT causation. Psychiatry tells patients they lack chemicals in the brain so take something. However, the causation of the lack of chemicals in the brain is never discussed with patients. I advise anyone with a mood disorder considering seeing a shrink to first see an MD which is more likely to give you what you need for narcotics right (shrinks will give you everything else first that have nasty side effects) away to ease suffering but while also attempting to determine the underlying cause of the mood disorder.

I have anxiety and gerds cause by Barrets disease, the short of it I dont fully digest certain minerals properly, so less processed minerals means less chemicals to the brain.

I'll tell you my short story. So I went to a nurse practictioner years ago for anxiety and occasionally got a chill pill. Well, a couple of years ago I figured I would try a specialist, a shrink. They must really know what they are doing right? I had one that told me I was manic and must be bi-polar, based on the dialation of my eyes and hurried speech.

He put me on meds that had adverse effects to the point I was a near drooling idiot for eight months.  I also developed suicidal feelings while on them. I told the shrink give me the chill pill like I used to have and I am going off the other drugs or your fired. He gave them to me. Research based on my anxiety symptoms and adverse reactions to drugs prescribed from the American Journal of Psychiatry put me a a camp where only narcotics work so wrong prescription, I had to do my own research and show this to him.

My clear thinking restored I began doing tons of research on causation of lack of chemicals in the brain. The most common causes are digestive disorders, a person doesnt absorb, metabolize or distribute the chemicals processed (or not in my case) from food. You see a high correlation of people tested for low vitamin D or lithium levels with digestive issues and mood disorders. Thyroid issues can also cause mood disorders which should also be tested.

I went to an MD and got tested, I have Barrets. So between diet changes, supplements and exercise which helps anxiety for a ton of reasons, I take only 2 MG of Ativan daily for the anxiety which is near nothing and I take it now more for business performance issues, for focus. The MD gave me a comprehension test for bi-polar with the results stating I was not. So shrinks destroyed eight months of my life, cost me thousands of dollars. About a year ago I met a retired German shrink on a plane to Boston while traveling for business. When I told him what happened, he said shrinks do not want patients to be treated for the CAUSe of mood disorders, they want you as a patient for 20-30 years at $200 an hour. The Upton Sinclair quote comes to mind: "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on not understanding it."

I tell you all this not because I want pity, I tell you this to warn you to see that MD FIRST and determine causation and avoid the shrinks so you do not pay a VERY heavy price for trusting this profession. It nearly ended my life, quite literally. And I went to some groups of people with mood disorders and I can tell you the devastation caused by this profession is rampant and widespread. For every one patient helped, you'll see five made worse.

It is the only medical profession that I can tell that can get away operating soley on correlation. BTW, a majority of famous entertainers and scientists have mood disorders. Well, it appears that if you lack certain chemicals in the brain your body may produce more adreline to function which increases beta brain waves. In today's America, Einstein would have been drugged out by his parents on ADD meds to control his mood disorder for not cooperating at school. I rarely use profanity but to ALL YOU SHRINKS: FUCK YOU

It has been determined that chain smoking is a form of grief, so nicotine is a powerful medication for those who have lost loved ones.  What the hell, start smoking tobacco constantly if you are racked by grief.

Freud studied what?  The abnormal psyche.  The guy who sold his soul to the devil, for real.

Freud committed suicide, fercryinoutloud.  He liked coke.  He wrote a book entitled The Cocaine Papers, which was banned in the United States.

Sometimes, life just plain sucks. 

Merck's Vioxx killed some 64 thousand patients, so it is a known fact that drugs can kill.

So, fuck 'em.

William Tell's first arrow hit the apple, not his son's skull.

Had he missed, the second arrow was for the Austrian prick Gessler, who would have had it coming to him.

William Tell was a real person.

"Fuck that prick Gessler, just who in the hell does he think he is?", William Tell must have thought to himself.  "I ain't submitting to any of his bullshit.  I'm not bowing to his hat and certainly not to him.  Jesus Fucking Christ Almighty, who is going to put up with this bullshit?"

William Tell's own words, I am quite sure.  If they're not, it's close.  Sometimes, enough is enough and putting up with it is not the answer, so open defiance can be a valuable tool.

Do what William Tell did and your life is going to be better.

Fuck you, Obama,  you stupid prick.  Take your Obamacare and shove it right straight up your ass, you stupid shit.

I knew an FBI agent who complained vehemently that just after 9/11 they were pulled from work on major financial crimes to running down baseless complaints from busy-body old ladies who saw 'terrorists' everywhere.  

Those very real and substantial crimes are now past their statute of limitations.


Amazing how many investigations (like the $2 trillion unaccounted for in the Pentagon's spending) evaporated after 9/11.   Some very suspicious activity in clearing Treasuries also occurred under 'emergency measures' just after 9/11 as well.


Just proves - If you're going to steal, steal BIG.  Seems like 'Too big to fail' can also be 'Too big to investigate and prosecute'

  Was right after 9/11.  Back then they still WERE investigating and even prosecuting financial crimes.   Since then - forget it.

BTW - there have been fewer prosecutions of financial crimes under Obama than under Bush or any other recent President.  I guess even W wanted the appearance of action - whihc may be what these recent prosecutions are under Obama - all prescripted settlements with minor fines (relative to the amounts looted) and nobody going to jail (unless they're 'outsiders' - South Asians or such and blatant thiefs like Madoff or Corzine... uh ... scratch that last one)

''Its a wonderful life''

''However, a group convened by J. Edgard Hoover's Los Angeles FBI field office found it to be dangerous propaganda, according to media blog Aphelis.

The anonymous circle of screenwriters targeted both the writers and the film itself. 'It's a Wonderful Life' and other films were targeted under a film regime designed by Ayn Rand, the 'Atlas Shrugged' writer who has become an icon for some libertarian conservatives in recent years, according to Aphelis.

'According to [source name redacted] the writers Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett were very close to known Communists and on one occasion in the recent past... practically lived with known Communists and were observed eating luncheon daily with such Communists as Lester Cole, screenwriter, and Early Robinson, screenwriter,' the FBI document says.

The FBI file also claims that the bureau's screenwriter sources said the film 'deliberately maligned the upper classes, attempting to show the people who had money were mean and despicable characters.'

The screenwriters reporting to the FBI claimed that the film would not have suffered if Mr Potter had been portrayed as simply looking after his bottom line, instead of as an evil, greedy fat cat.''

The nation state is on its way out everywhere, especially in the Western world. The reason for nation states was they could field bigger armies, and those no longer enjoy the edge they once did. New technology will level the playing field, so than an individual can protect his assets against consfiscation and other types of violence. A big nation state is no longer needed, also it can't maintain its tax base.

That is very bad news for the political and economic elite, both in the U.S. and in Europe. In Europe, the elite tries to slow down the development back to city states and other smaller entities, by concentrating all power into Brussels. The U.S. elite has responded to this same pressure, by tightening its grip on the citizens. Hence the "Security" apparatus with almost unlimited powers. Another move, a very smart one, was to attack the very reason behind the change. Hence, NSA has been trying to corrupt cryptographic algorithms and destroy citizens' privacy. If the citizens can't hide anything, they can't hide their wealth either, and the nation state can tax them like before.

They will lose, but it is going to get very ugly.

If the FBI was truly committed to stopping terror it would have gone after the members of the elite that were behind 9 11. Building 7s collapse can only be explained by demolition charges and that means 9 11 was an inside job. So in reality the FBI seems to have moved from law enforcement to protecting terrorists.

One thing to remember about this 'terrorist' thing is just how many serious terrorists there are in the world that a) have the means, and b) the intelligence (many of them live in huts and can't even read or write) to actually attack the west.

I'd hazzard a guess the number is between 2,000 - 5,000.

One would think a small budget could keep track of these guys wouldn't you?

So the terrorist threat is massively overblown and the sheeple lap it up all the way into a massive Police state.

I think the number is closer to 300 than 3000. Even al Qaeda was admittedly only 150-170 people. And they don't have the means really. They have no real money. They have to beg rich boys like bin laden to fund an operation.

Now it's become a brand name. A banner or something akin to putting a picture of a dragon on your shield when fighting. So the militants in Syria or Iraq who call themselves "al Qaeda" have almost nothing to do with the group that attacked the US.

Seems like every govt agency has to get in on the national security honeypot.

You and I need to understand that the people who run and control the FBI and all the other alphabet soup organisations, simply have fears like the rest of us. They might also be psychopaths, scammers, control freaks and the rest, but they still have fears and the way they try to placate those fears is through controlling the apparatus of courts, police, security agencies, congress and banks.

As for worrying about my life and assets, yes I do, but not overly so because there is the danger that fear will intimidate us more than reality to the point that life loses its meaning and spontaneity.

We have to accept that these agencies have the means to destroy each one of us individually either through real or contrived evidence and through legal or illegal means.

At the same time we have to recognise that there are a great many people working in these organisations who DO have a conscience and a sense of resposnibility to their fellow citizens and their nation.

Do you really think they would have writ the 2nd the same way  if they knew that one day one man and a machine gun could wipe them off the map in a second? I think not, it is pure sin that slowly developed and handed us the situation we are currently in, pure and unadulterated SIN. Now where do u fit in?

They were more clever than you can imagine. Tyranny is borne out of power over others. Without this guarantee the founders would have ensured tyranny. Take your subversion elswhere.

Becuase the U.S. citizen is the new terrorist! OR least will be considered as such for a convienent excuse because the reality is the average US citizen makes a sheep look brave and honorable.

It is how they justify not arresting obvious criminals in banking and government.  They have to tell themselves that it is not their job.  What a disgrace.  The FBI is a complete and utter digrace.

Nothing is more terrifying to any state then it's citizens. Hence all citizens are terrorists.

"The FBI does not keep a file on every US citizen."


Is that suppose to relieve us of the feeling of being watched?  I never thought they had files on EVERY US citizen as some are newborns. I figure they don't start a file till 10 years of age, unless of course, you happen to get suspended for making a play gun with your hand.

They don't need to keep a file! They just call the NSA and have one run!

You ought to see the fortress the FBI built not 10 miles from where I live. I mean a fortress! it is a multi-building compound with 12' high walls, security gates, cameras on every corner. The tallest building is right in the center, just like medieval times. This fucker is right behind a shopping center. Projecting the power of the federal government. It is increadibly creepy.

Oh, I mean... I feel so safe now!

Eric Holder has been abusive to the Constitution and his oath of office
just as his mentor, BHO has.
He has waived polling violations ala the Philly Black Panthers.
He has allowed guns to be run, untraced, into Mexico
He has waived the federal laws against marajuana in CO and other states.

Where do these people get off doing such things against their oath to uphold
the laws of the nation? Where do they get off fundamentally altering the mission
of the FBI? And the Federal Reserve for that matter???

Don't forget Holder was Attorney General under BILL CLINTON.

Those tentacles all belong to the same octopus...

Obama/Holder are employees of the Sinaloa cartel and the FBI makes sure no action is taken on intel that can prevent a terrorist attack. Did the FBI ever get to interrogate any Benghazi perps... of course not... they got their information from newspaper reporters who did. This administration is busy violating USSA cits rights and playing games with the muslim brotherhood/al queda, just like we did with bin laden...Maybe the NSA would like to explain why the intercepted call between Al Zawahiri and the Benghai perps was not acted on prior to the attack? Just let it keeps the dual purpose gestapo tactics in the homeland justified...make sure no government biggies are hit and fuck the people... plus if the people get out of hand we can crush them... in that arena they will be proactive. Exactly what did J Nap do with 2 billion hollow point bullets anyhow...?

Why keep a file when one can call the NSA and have one with full algorithmically structured queries creating exact histories of movement and word sent over?
