"Lang cites numerous examples of “incompetence and malfeasance in the leadership of the 17 agencies of the Intelligence Community and the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” to include the examples cited above plus the failure to predict the collapse of the Soviet Union. On the domestic front, he cites his personal observation of efforts by the Department of Justice and the FBI to corruptly “frame” people tried in federal courts on national security issues as well as the intelligence/law enforcement community conspiracy to “get Trump.”
Colonel Lang asks “Tell me, pilgrims, why should we put up with such nonsense? Why should we pay the leaders of these agencies for the privilege of having them abuse us? We are free men and women. Let us send these swine to their just deserts in a world where they have to work hard for whatever money they earn.” He then recommends stripping CIA of its responsibility for being the lead agency in spying as well as in covert action, which is a legacy of the Cold War and the area in which it has demonstrated a particular incompetence. As for the FBI, it was created by J. Edgar Hoover to maintain dossiers on politicians and it is time that it be replaced by a body that operates in a fashion “more reflective of our collective nation[al] values.”" Giraldi
Slightly off topic: I have been reluctantly listening to the hearings in front of the Star Chamber of the House. A thing I didn’t know (but should have) and learned from the hearings: Ambassador Volker finds it totally unremarkable that a Ukrainian official would come to him for editing and approval of a public statement by the Ukrainian government. I think the foreign service needs a similar cleaning of the Augean Stables.
Sorry to repeat the gist of a lighthearted comment I made recently on this subject. But I am beginning to think that the social Class that essentially runs the Nation, (they call themselves the Meritocracy, I call them the managerial Class) and their bureaucratic minions that work for them, the Admin State, have decided to ‘replace the people’, as opposed to reforming the bureaucracy.
The Hart-Cellar Act of 1965 weaponized the “replacement strategy”, every “this is the last one, honest injun” amnesty advanced the agenda. Divide (dilute) & conquer, an old play.
and don’t we JJ, have a living, breathing, example of how this can play out? California.
Ja, if they feel sullied being in the US, let ’em go. Off the hook when the Big One hits, make ’em pay for their water, get rid of Schiff, Pelosi. HARDENED BORDER. Ta ta, Comrades.
