The knives have been out for “domestic terrorists” – a corporate state euphemism for Trump supporters and, actually, anyone remotely ideologically in the vicinity of MAGA – for many years at this point.
But they’re getting sharper, and blood-thirstier.
“The federal government believes that the threat of violence and major civil disturbances around the 2024 U.S. presidential election is so great that it has quietly created a new category of extremists that it seeks to track and counter: Donald Trump's army of MAGA followers.
The challenge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the primary federal agency charged with law enforcement, is to pursue and prevent what it calls domestic terrorism without direct reference to political parties or affiliations*—even though the vast majority of its current "anti-government" investigations are of Trump supporters, according to classified data…”
*For anyone who believes that the FBI is targeting “domestic terrorists” regardless of their political affiliations, I’ve got a ski resort timeshare in Saudi Arabia with a fresh blanket of powdery snow to sell you.
This is anarcho-tyranny in practice; Trump supporters/conservatives/”even libertarians” (to quote retired CIA goon and current MSNBC news actor John Brennan) are targeted for political persecution while feral “domestic terrorists” of the Democrat variety (i.e., BLM looters during the 2020 Summer of Love) are allowed to run hog-wild in the streets.
Continuing via Newsweek, an anonymous quoted FBI hack pretends his agency is deeply concerned with protecting something called the “Constitutional rights” of the serfs it lords over in its terror campaign against them:
“"The FBI is in an almost impossible position," says a current FBI official, who requested anonymity to discuss highly sensitive internal matters. The official said that the FBI is intent on stopping domestic terrorism and any repeat of the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. But the Bureau must also preserve the Constitutional right of all Americans to campaign, speak freely and protest the government. By focusing on former president Trump and his MAGA (Make America Great Again) supporters, the official said, the Bureau runs the risk of provoking the very anti-government activists that the terrorism agencies hope to counter**.
“Especially at a time when the White House is facing Congressional Republican opposition claiming that the Biden administration has ‘weaponized’ the Bureau against the right wing, it has to tread very carefully,” says the official.”
**The whole “avoiding provoking anti-government activists” ship sailed long ago. The time for reconciliation and hand-holding has passed.

My Plan B Blueprint to Become Anti-fragile
The US and US dollar are clearly deteriorating. And there is a lot of danger in having too much exposure to a crumbling empire.
That is why I have a Plan B, which has allowed me to:
- Cut my tax rate to 4%
- Use that savings to invest in real assets, precious metals, and crypto
- Gain a second residency and apply for a second passport
- Diversify internationally
And much more.
A Plan B gives you the tools to respond to whatever the world throws at you from a position of strength.
