How To Fix The FBI's History Of Political Abuse - Abolish It!

Submitted by Ryan McMaken via The Mises Institute,

Like all employees of the FBI, James Comey lives off the sweat of the American taxpayer. His large salary, upon retirement, will be converted into a very generous pension. Like most federal employees in a high ranking position like his, Comey continues to look forward to decades of living at a standard of living far above what is experienced by ordinary people in the private sector. 

To maintain this life of comfort, all he had to do was agree to look the other way as a powerful politician clearly — by Comey's own admission — broke federal law. 

Naturally, this same treatment would never be afforded to an ordinary taxpayer, who would likely be looking at years in federal prison for offenses similar to that which Hillary Clinton has apparently committed. Moreover, Comey even went out of his way to do his best to ensure no federal prosecutor would proceed with charges when he claimed that "no reasonable prosecutor" would proceed with charges. It wasn't enough for Comey to simply not recommend charges. He had to pre-emptively condemn any prosecutor who might proceed with charges.

Some have claimed that Comey was forced to cave to Obama administration pressure in order to protect his family. Of course, Comey could have resigned his position rather than take a position he regarded as unethical. Then the task of clearing Clinton would have fallen to Comey's successor. There are precedents for this. When ordered by Nixon to fire the special prosecutor in the Watergate scandal, Attorney General Elliot Richardson resigned rather than do what the president mandated. Comey could have done the same, but then he would have had to give up some of his comforts and privileges. To find work, he might have had to move to an unexciting place like Indianapolis or Albuquerque. 

Nevertheless, Comey has accidentally done us a great service by publicly exhibiting the true nature of the FBI: it is a political organization that expands the reach and prerogatives of the federal government over citizens and taxpayers, while protecting the powerful.

Of all federal police forces, the FBI is the most romanticized, and every FBI agent is assumed to be the modern embodiment of a fictionalized version of Eliot Ness: incorruptible, professional, and efficient. Decades of pop culture has driven this home with TV series and movies such as The Untouchables, The FBI Story, and This Is Your FBI have long perpetuated the idea that when local police fail, the FBI will step in to be more effective and simply better than every other law enforcement agency. Corruption cannot touch the FBI, we are told, and they apply the law equally to everyone. 

A History of Abuse

This was always obviously untrue to anyone not suffering from crippling naïvete, but Comey has helped make the political nature of the Bureau plain for all to see. 

The reality and the romance, of course, have always been two totally different things, and it's helpful to remind ourselves that it was the FBI that was in charge of the Waco massacre where 26 children were killed. It was the FBI that led the raid on Randy Weaver's house where an FBI sniper shot a woman dead while she was holding a 10-month old baby. It was the FBI that spied on Martin Luther King, Jr., and targeted peaceful anti-war organizations for political reasons during the 1960s and 70s. It was the FBI that came of age arresting opponents of the First World War. 

Naturally, in all of these cases, the FBI has actively covered up the facts and denied wrongdoing. 

James Bovard reported in his 2012 article "A Stasi for America": 

A ripple of protest swept across the Internet in late March after the disclosure that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was teaching its agents that “the FBI has the ability to bend or suspend the law to impinge on the freedom of others.” This maxim was inculcated as part of FBI counterterrorism training. The exposure of the training material—sparked by a series of articles by Wired.com’s Spencer Ackerman—spurred the ritual declaration by an FBI spokesman that “mistakes were made, and we are correcting those mistakes.” No FBI officials were sanctioned or fired for teaching lawmen that they were above the law...At least the FBI has been consistent. Since its founding in 1908, the bureau has rarely let either the statute book or the Constitution impede its public service. Tim Weiner, the author of a superb exposé of the CIA (Legacy of Ashes) has delivered a riveting chronology of some of the FBI’s biggest crimes with his new book, Enemies.

Violating the rights of ordinary people has been standard policy at the FBI for decades. But, who can be surprised that the FBI now seeks to protect powerful politicians from the same laws that the FBI would enthusiastically use to prosecute and imprison ordinary citizens?

The FBI Is Unconstitutional and Ineffective

Thanks to the enduring view that federal police would tip the balance too far in favor of the federal government, many Americans opposed federal agencies like the FBI throughout the nineteenth century. It was feared that federal police would turn into secret police forces such as those known to be used in imperial Russia. Certainly, the Constitution does not mandate any federal police force. Consequently, it was not until the twentieth century that federal agencies like the FBI gained traction, thanks to a rising tide of pro-federal sentiment brought on by war and hysterical fear of "anarchists." 

Thanks to war hysteria during World War I, the FBI rose to prominence as Woodrow Wilson's shock troops against "dissidents" (i.e., peaceful opponents of the war). Indeed, persecuting and prosecuting political enemies of the American state would become something of the forte of the FBI, with the role of the agency being expanded ever more during times of perceived national crisis. The idea of the FBI as a crime-fighting organization — the primary message of fawning treatments of the FBI such as The Untouchables and The FBI Story — for decades served as cover for the FBI's political activities. As Foreign Policy pointed out in 2014, though, the FBI quietly dropped its claims of being a crime fighting organization and began declaring itself a "national security" organization. Down the memory hole goes the FBI's original claimed raison d'etre. In its current Q and A, the FBI now acts as if it had never claimed to be a crime fighting organization at all: 

Is the FBI a type of national police force?

No. The FBI is a national security organization that works closely with many partners around the country and across the globe to address the most serious security threats facing the nation.

No longer tied down by the need to waste its valuable time — as the FBI sees it — on mundane, real, and concrete crime such as kidnapping, the FBI can now focus on the far-more-amorphous "national security." Never mind the fact, of course, that the FBI's record on preventing terrorist acts such as 9/11 and the Orlando shooting is abysmal, and the terrorist plots it has "prevented" in recent years were actually facilitated by the FBI itself. Predictably, after the FBI was criticized in the wake of the Orlando shooting, James Comey declared to the press that the FBI did a fine job: 

"We are also going to look hard at our own work to see whether there is something we should have done differently,” Comey said. “So far, the honest answer is: I don’t think so."

The FBI Was Created to Compete with Successful Private Agencies 

It should be noted that the FBI was not created to fill a hole in law enforcement needs. On the contrary, it was created to usurp and displace a highly-efficient and effective private police force that already existed: the Pinkerton National Detective Agency. 

Writing in Private Investigation and Security Science: A Scientific Approach, Frank Machovec notes that "The FBI, founded in 1908, was modeled from Pinkerton's organization and methods," while Marie Gottschalk writes in The Prison and the Gallows that "In its early years, the FBI modeled itself after the Pinkertons and other private police agencies."

In fact, government-run police organizations had long been shown to be inefficient and prone to corruption, which is why the private sector turned to private security instead. Gottschalk continues: 

The unreliability of metropolitan police, with their strong local and partisan ties, prompted major businesses and industrialists to establish the Pinkertons and other private police forces. The Pinkertons ultimately functioned as a de facto national detective and policing service until the 1920s, when the FBI finally came into its own.

By the early twentieth century, the Pinkertons and other private investigative organizations had established themselves as reliable and effective. It's why the Pinkertons repeatedly show up in popular culture as the highly-efficient and dangerous enemies of beloved Old-West outlaws like Butch Cassidy. 

As early as 1857, politicians were already noting the public's favorable perceptions of private police over public police, with Chicago mayor John Wentworth noting: 

Our police system has been gradually falling into disrepute; and it is a lamentable fact that, whilst our citizens are heavily taxed to support a large police force, a highly respectable private police is doing a lucrative business. Our citizens have ceased to look to the public police for protection, for the detection of culprits or the recovery of stolen property.

The federal government, however, wanted a similar force that it could directly control, and thus turned to a federal police force instead. The desire to present the new agency as like the Pinkertons can be seen in the decision to call FBI investigators "agents" just as many private sector investigators were addressed (as opposed to "deputy" or "officer").

The Pinkertons were primarily interested in property crime with actual victims (i.e., train robbing). The FBI, however, could be used to go after political enemies, protesters, supposed draft dodgers and others who ran afoul of government regulations created to benefit the government itself. Over time, the FBI would crowd out the Pinkertons as a national police force (although, unfortunately, government organizations were known to contract with the Pinkertons). 

This was all to the good according to many critics of the Pinkertons who wanted a government-controlled national police force that could be used against the private sector, rather than be controlled by it. 

The FBI Is a Product of Anti-Capitalist Movements 

Indeed, the rise of the FBI is very much the product of left-wing and labor unionist movements to curb the power of the Pinkertons in favor of the FBI and similar agencies.

A recent example of this line of thought can be found in Elizabeth Joh's 2006 article "The Forgotten Threat: Private Policing and the State." 

As explained by Joh, the left was highly critical of the Pinkertons in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries for their role in combating striking workers and for being employed by private organizations. While federal police forces such as the FBI would work only in the "public interest" it was assumed, organizations like the the Pinkertons functioned at the morally base level of seeking "profit." 

The Pinkerton's however, never functioned with the sort of firepower, manpower, and legal immunity enjoyed by federal agencies today. Indeed, in some cases, the Pinkertons surrendered to their "victims" as in the case of the Homestead Riot of 1892 where, according to Joh, "[o]utnumbered, the Pinkerton guards surrendered, and were beaten by an angry mob." 

Three workers were killed in the melee, making the Homestead Riot a peaceful affair by FBI standards. Under the leadership of the FBI, federal agents killed 17 times as many people at Waco, including children. However, unlike Waco, which produced no sanctions or sustained public reactions against the FBI, the Homestead Riot became the high tide for anti-Pinkerton scrutiny and a flashpoint for action against private security agencies. For example, following an investigation of private security agencies at the time, the US Senate's investigatory committee declared that private security is illegitimate and that "use of private armed men is an assumption [that is, usurpation] of the State's authority by private citizens." Indeed, the Senate committee declared, the use of private arms to secure private property will lead to "anarchy."

For decades afterward, government committee and pro-labor groups worked together to condemn, investigate, and discredit private security agencies. Government agencies, it was maintained, would be responsive to elected officials and the public at large. If private policing agencies could be done away with, the public was told, no more would police organizations function in their own self-interest.

Such views have always been impressively naïve, although the public has long fallen for these claims. Moreover, one of the primary benefits of private security has been that it is subject to a totally separate and often hostile (to private security) legal system. Unlike the FBI, which enjoys a variety of government-granted immunities from responsibility for abuses and wrongful deaths, private security is legally subject to the same laws as everyone else. Even worse, agencies like the FBI can directly tap into nearly limitless funds through their taxpayer-funded budgets. Unlike private security firms that are constrained by real-world budgets, government prosecutors and police agencies face no such limitation. Obviously, this places defendants at an even more lopsided economic disadvantage than when dealing with powerful private firms. 

Today, federal police organizations, federal courts, and federal prosecutors are all part of a single organization. Naturally, these organizations tend to favor each other in their proceedings. On the other hand, if there is a distrust of private security within the court system (or vice versa) that's all for the best, since as a result of this tension, checks and balances are likely to actually mean something. The same cannot be said for the current system which unifies policing and court proceedings within a single organization and in which a sizable number of government judges are former government prosecutors. 

The Triumph of Federal Police in Public Opinion 

The war on private security has now been so successful that few Americans would even entertain the idea of doing away with federal police agencies like the FBI in favor of private security organizations. It is now simply accepted that federal police officers may function unimpeded in every community in America, independent of local law enforcement (such as democratically-elected sheriffs), with powers to enforce everything from laws on what we eat, what we grow in our backyards, and whom we can hire. The FBI functions with an immense amount of insulation from the voting public and requires only the approval of the president and the attorney general to function unimpeded. The Hillary Clinton affair has shown how easy it is to choose between serving the White House, or serving the public, which has no power over the FBI. 

Nevertheless, the FBI continues to benefit from decades of pop culture and government whitewashing which portrays the FBI and other federal agencies as professional and effective. Always a product of left-wing and Progressive desires for more government intervention and a weakened private sector, the FBI continues to benefit from the perception that it functions in the service of the "public." 

With James Comey's recent demonstration of the FBI's political motivations and origins, we have gained yet another insight into how the FBI works, and public service has very little to do with it.

Well, maybe you are want to live like in Mogudishu!? Without any government!?

… well, if you are watch big government expand to totalitarian end where citizenry is eventually put in Siberian gulag… maybe Mogudishu is not so bad…

Ignore emotional argument and false parallel of bat crap crazy leftist, and remember one principle: State is enemy of Individual, so if you are have state, keep it small, keep it simple, keep it under control. That's all

"if you are have state, keep it small, keep it simple, keep it under control"

My thoughts exactly. I'm no anarchist. Nor even a libertarian. Don't know what I am, but I am for a smaller government.

I think giving it the term 'government' is like you are asking for it. "Management" should have sufficed? I prefer just 'Civil servants'

Boris Alatovkrap's picture

Imagine government constituted with strict legal limitation to growth of power, and then imagine if financial supply to government is control by special group elect by citizenry to make sure government is only perform function in best interest of individual citizenry! Imagine if such system exist! Wow! Sorry, but Boris is caught up in vision of free market with limited government. If such is exist, you would do all you could to protect such refuge from tyrrany!

Representative [Name of your representative here],
I am writing you to demand you initiate impeachment proceedings against both FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

FBI Director Comey yesterday created a section of law out of whole cloth by stating that "intent" was not found in applying 18 U.S. Code § 793 - (Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information), in the actions of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Having read 18 U.S. Code § 793 I can find no mention of intent. The Director has moved illegally beyond the scope of his purview.

He also stated yesterday that, and I quote, “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statute regarding the handling of classified information, no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”, this is actually a lie, as the Obama Administration has seen fit to prosecute 5 people under 18 U.S. Code § 793, namely John Kiriakou, Shamai Leibowitz, Jeffrey Sterling, former State Department official Stephen Kim, and Bradley "Chelsea" Manning.

So according to his own admission, the FBI neither recorded Hillary Clinton's deposition nor did they put her under oath while under deposition. How could they not during a criminal investigation? And why did not FBI Director Comey refer this to a federal Grand Jury? There are only two possible reasons for not doing so. The first would be that he is incompetent. If this is the case, then he needs to be removed post-haste. I personally do not believe that Director Comey is incompetent. So what else could it be?

The only other possible plausible excuse is that he was afraid. He feared doing the very thing that his oath required, to protect and defend the United States and its Constitution. Cowardice is an impeachable offense.

Now let's look at the case of AG Loretta Lynch. Mrs. Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton in Phoenix's airport tarmac. She says that for 39 minutes they talked about "grandchildren and golf", (this from a woman who has never golfed in her life). Someone orders the FBI to instruct the press present to "not report" the meeting. Someone even went as far as to ban photos, videos and cellphones fom recording the event. Not only was Mr. Clinton's wife under federal investigation, he himself was under investigation over the handling of the Clinton Foundation. The impropriety of this meeting knows no bounds. So, did AG Loretta Lynch immediately recuse herself? No. Did she immediately appoint a special prosecutor in either of these cases? No.

Again, any prudent person must come to the conclusion that either AG Lynch is incompetent, or she is afraid. Also again, either of these conditions REQUIRE  that she step down or be removed.

This is a very ugly time in our nation's history. How you decide to stand on these crimes will be with you permanently. Do the right thing please. Represent our district and our nation with honor. These two people swore an oath they appear unwilling or unable to uphold. Don't you join them. Impeach TODAY.

Respectfully,

[Your Name here]

Correct, there is no mention of intent. Gross negligence is the actual trigger for the statute.

That would be somewhere between the third through 100th time she pressed...

...SEND.

After 100 it's kinda obvious to everyone except Comey & Lynch ;-)

"Willful blindness" seems to be all the rage these days when it comes to the crimes committed in the name of the actors acting under color of US law.

That is why we must keep attacking it right there...at the very heart of it, it's demonstrably weakest point.

It's "law"

It is what they hold up as the shiny, pure, angelic and virtuous object, that must be obeyed by all...at all times...no matter what.

Well, why?...(we ask.)

Because "it's the laaa-www!!!...that's why dammit!!!"...they respond with that zombie-blank stare and without thinking any further explanation is even required. 

Well I'm calling bullshit on the entire program.

The "law" applies to everyone equally or it applies to no one. I'm standing before the world today declaring my individual sovereignty as the man I am. I say again, Hitler had laws, as did Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro, Maduro, Marcos, Evita & Juan so, I will treat "their paid enforcers" with all the "due respect" I think they deserve as it's thugs & henchmen as I venture across "it's gang turf".

Because THAT'S EXACTLY what it has become.

This brings memories of a story I came across where someone got arrested for patching a pothole on a road. The city was supposed to do it, but it wasn't a high priority. Sounds like they got too much Kool-Aid from the District of Criminals.

Regarding raw milk.. Make that, cheese! I recall a Missouri couple who made cheese for sale. It sold well at Whole Foods and other major outlets. The Missouri Milk Board (maybe Dairy Board??) forced them out of business, even with no reports of the product having caused any ill effects to anyone. Seems the Big Corporates there were so fucking jealous that even one cent-dime would be diverted from them.

 

cdevidal's picture

The local raw dairy must mark his milk "for pet consumption only." Yet has zero issues with the law because he dots his 'i's and crosses his 't's. His product is prominently for sale in a local chain of high dollar health food stores.

How does he stay so squeaky-clean with the government? His business/sexual partner is also on the board of the local FDA governance chapter. LOL

So what did I learn from that? If you're in bed with the government you can do just about anything.

God help us heterosexual peons.

ALL GOV operates with some level of corruption as a struggle to preserve itself in order to legitimize it's existence. It does so outside of market forces of course so inefficiency is a given.

The Pinkerton's obviously a clear example of the earliest forms of private security contractors. 

In a time when private employment wages and benefits have dropped so severely vs public, coupled with the explosion of wealth inequality, there will be trouble.

The "law" would appear to be whatever the Clinton FOundation says it is this week

For anybody paying attention, this week, on basically the 240th anniversary of the Republic, the Clinton Foundation administered the coup de grace to the  American government.

The Clinton Foundation managed to nullify 6 federal laws on behalf of their candidate, and in so doing gut Congress and  the FBI-in public.

The Clinton Foundation has totally pwned Fed.gov. In every sense of the meaning.

There's a reason 30,000 emails can never be read by anybody outside the Foundation. They detail the individuals and organizations making it all happen.

People don't go into salaried government positions with good bennies and retirement to rock the boat and get knocked off by a clinton/nwo goon. There are many that know damn well what's going on but are either paid off, or unwilling to become the next unexplained death. You can't solve this level of corruption with investigations, it takes an economic failure to stop the money flow to and from the agents of evil.

No wonder Comey wimped out. The skeletons are in the FBI's closet.

Vatican_cameo's picture

 20 years ago James Comey as an attorney on the Senate Whitewater Investigation was looking into the conduct of President Bill Clinton and first lady Hillary Clinton.The investigation was to determine whether Bill Clinton used his political position as governor of Arkansas (in the 1980s) to push through an illegal loan to benefit Bill and Hillary's business partner in Whitewater. Several people involved in Whitewater went to jail, but no criminal prosecution was in the cards for Bill and Hillary. Remember James Comey was the Deputy Special Counsel for the Whitewater investigation....In Christopher Anderson's book, American Evita: Hillary Clinton's Rise to Power, Anderson gives details of the New Square offenders pardon by Bill Clinton (who had been convicted of bilking the government of $30 million dollars). Christopher Anderson relates that at Hillary's urging Bill gave clemency to 16 Puerto Rican terrorists who took the lives of 16 Americans and wounded many others.Anderson tell us that Hillary admired the Marxist Carl Oglesby and Saul Alinsky. It is from her admiration for Saul Alinsky that she formed her belief that "the only way to make a real difference is to acquire power." The pardon of billionaire Marc Rich (who traded illegally with America's enemies including Iran) by President Bill Clinton was something that everyone knew reeked of impropriety after learning that Rich's wife donated $450,000 to the Clinton Library. Again James Comey oversaw investigations of the pardon matters as well. Unbelievably James Comey did not recommend charging the Clinton in any of these matters.

Excellent commentary.....the Clinton's are obviously corrupt and have corrupted the FBI....as was made clear to anyone with an IQ over 70.

Under Obama the IRS has also been corrrupted into a wing of the democratic party....Chicago style politics at their finest.

 

Speaking of Chicago....if black lives do matter then someone should be looking at the Chicago death rates of blacks by blacks.

"Catholic" Comey, and all the deaths in support of Billary are in support of Vatican banker Rockefellers' hegemony with the Rothschilds' Beast of Gog and Babylon now upon us - including Waco - since Rome took over with the Civil War's Fasces on the House's front wall, Big Oil on murder and arson, and Wilson's blackmail by Rome's consiglieri.

True in 1776, true now: Whig Interpretation of History - "all history results from the conflict between Rome's belief it "owns the world" echoed by their Talmud Khazar cult impaling Christ killers, and the rest of the world.

Government is an unnecessary evil and a coercive monopoly

Without a government, there would be no need for city,state or federal oversight regarding legal activities. People would be free to express themselves and live their life as they desire as long as they do not use force or fraud against other people. Government secrets would not exist. Government spying would not exist. Government lies would be nonexistent. People who are adjudicated by an arbiter to have caused damage to any person would be liable for their actions and liable for compensation. Corporations are not persons and only the primary aggressor and or his associates in crime would be liable. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Market_for_Liberty

It was a Roman Catholic who murdered Vicky Weaver.

It was Roman Catholics who performed the auto-da-fé at Waco.

It was Roman Catholics who assassinated JFK and MLK.

It was Roman Catholics who created Hitler.

"Whigs," Black and White, founded America in express covenant with God.

"Whig" means "anti-Roman Catholic."

Rome and the Khazar cult-impalers have run their "good cop/bad cop" satanic psychopathy since centuries before they crucified God Incarnate on Golgotha.

Get it?

The FBI is "Opus Dei."

The CIA is "Knights of Malta."

Get it?

America is the only prophesied "Israel" by the prophet Isaiah's given signs.

Get it?

I think we might add the murder of Lavoy Finicum, since FBI was in charge, and FBI was under the direction of.... James Comey.  As far as I'm concerned, James Comey has blood on his hands.

That seems simplistic and outright misleading to the point of being disinformative, but you touch an important point that needs much more attention, that being the infiltration and influence of psychopath-hijacked fraternal groups behind all these big organizations, a kind of pseudo-mafiosi 'glue' that protects members from prosecution while going about fraternal 'business.'  Expect this sort of dirt to surface as the system breaks down under the sheer magnitude of corruption.

America's named Sovereign is "simple": serve Truth and Justice under God alone, or serve Satan. There is no "in-between."

God lives.

America is God's and the Beast now upon us shall soon be cast down. Only lost souls molest or allow their children to be molested - to become pedophile homosexual assassins, cops, generals, admirals, and politicians - especially by the known Caesaropapist/Khazar Talmud institutionalized Christ-killing abomination we Black and White "whigs" were anointed by God to escape here in true "Israel."

Fail.  That kind of occultist-fundamentalist pap leaves no room for critical thought.  If your mind was a hard drive, it would be thrown in the heap for reformatting.

iAmerican's picture

Care to admit you're a conformed ZioTalmud Bar Mitzvah? Or just another run-of-the-mill papist?

Mossad or CIA payroll? A satanist or just an atheist?

More "fundamentalist pap," Talmud? Try gaslighting some other Goy, Christ-killer.

To Samuel Kercheval

Monticello, January 19, 1810

SIR,

-- Yours of the 7th instant has been duly received, with the pamphlet inclosed, for which I return you my thanks. Nothing can be more exactly and seriously true than what is there stated; that but a short time elapsed after the death of the great reformer of the Jewish religion, before his principles were departed from by those who professed to be his special servants, and perverted into an engine for enslaving mankind, and aggrandising their oppressors in Church and State; that the purest system of morals ever before preached to man, has been adulterated and sophisticated by artificial constructions, into a mere contrivance to filch wealth and power to themselves; that rational men not being able to swallow their impious heresies, in order to force them down their throats, they raise the hue and cry of infidelity, while themselves are the greatest obstacles to the advancement of the real doctrines of Jesus, and do in fact constitute the real Anti-Christ.

You're the one whose head is full of programmatic shit, not me.  Go outside and take a walk or ride a bike. 

iAmerican's picture

What was your Bar Mitzvah Torah portion, shithead?

Lore's picture

Nothing like that, sorry.  Again, go outside and breathe fresh air.  Somebody has got their hooks into you.  You'll be a more sensible person if you strive to cut out the phantasmagorical nonsense. 

iAmerican's picture

You deny the Creator of the universe is America's named Sovereign, poor, pathetic fool.

You are slave to Satan, king, pope, or "woman."

Existence is a miracle.

Miracle ergo "God."

Wise up.

Lore's picture

Ironic that you tell ME to 'wise up.'  My mind isn't the one that's captured. 

iAmerican's picture

No slave here: as an American only God is my Sovereign. Assimilate or get out. It won't go well for Satan's JFK-assassinating, 9/11-committing, pedophile homosexual ZioTalmud/papist Fifth Column.
