FBI Spying on Trump Campaign is Yet Another Reason to Distrust Government
The investigation into whether or not Obama's FBI was snooping around the Trump campaign has gone on for weeks. Despite what seems like the sudden onslaught of The Spy Who Shagged Me 2: Infiltrated Yugely. The original reporting was from Kimberley Strassel over at the Wall Street Journal on May 10th. Check that calendar.
A few reasons for this:
- The scandal is a complicated mess.
- There are a lot of players.
- Not all the players have been named.
- Most importantly, the story of Obama's FBI spying on the opposition party's presidential candidate flies in the face of all the media's narratives. Mainly that Trump is boinking Putin between romps with Stormy Daniels. So a story of Obama sending in agents to spy on Trump is a wrinkle in need of ironing, if not a giant Russian reset button. Provided by the woman in a tented pantsuit.
Here, let Kim Strassel break it down:
CARLSON: This person, the mole who fed the information to the feds from the campaign, there has been a lot of talk about this person, whispering about his identity. Apparently, it's an older man.
Do we know who this person is? Can we say with certainty? And if we find out for sure, I mean, what are the consequences of that?
STRASSEL: Well, here's the joke. I'm 99.9 percent sure that I know who this person is.
CARLSON: I do, too.
STRASSEL: I did not get that from any congressional sources, but I also cannot get them to confirm it. So, I haven't used the name.
The layers of corruption here are overwhelming. We can add the alleged Obama FBI spy in Trump's campaign to the other clear corruption leveled at Trump. Like the fake Russian dossier concocted by Fusion GPS, used by the DNC, and reported on by CNN and BuzzFeed. A tale now crystalized in history by Trump calling CNN "fake news." I'll include the thug life clip at the end of this post.
Our friends over at The Daily Wire put together a handy timeline on how, apparently, Obama's band of merry men colluded on the release of that dossier. Reminder: the dossier was faker than Bruce Jenner's ta-tas. There's been no evidence Trump colluded with the Russians in the 2016 election. Hillary Clinton lost mainly because she's a soul-sucking bog troll.
Sorry but it's true.
But here's the bigger point. An evergreen point. For those not in the know, "evergreen" applies to content which is fresh all year round. You may shake your head at my having to explain something that self-explanatory, but I have to read comment sections.
The government is simply a body of people. Some elected, some appointed, some who want a sweet vacation plan and to take off every holiday including Arbor day. Banker's hours have nothing on government holidays. The point is, when one works for government, one isn't suddenly granted beatific powers of non-bias or uncorrupt whims. Government isn't made up of angels. Government has a plethora of corrupt, willful, greedy bastards who if you were stranded paperless in a bathroom stall, wouldn't spare a square.
Obama possibly sending a spy into the Trump campaign, or maybe one of Obama's minions sending a spy into the Trump campaign, is just one line item on a mile long list of why it's healthy to distrust government. Being skeptical of government isn't a call for mass anarchy. I'm not suggesting we all identify as preppers waiting/hoping for the zombie apocalypse to collapse civilized society. I'm suggesting we not be so freaking shocked to find out a political regime would use a federal agency to spy on the opposition. Note I didn't specify a party in the previous sentence.
Yet media, the government's biggest fangirl, is doing whatever it can to cover up for the FBI's actions. Not only because they don't disapprove, but because they don't want anyone's view of government sullied. Because yes, government has plenty of sycophantic fans. And if eventually the point "Hey, government shouldn't be given this must trust" is proven correct, the house of cards begins to crumble.
Politicians are not heroes. The government isn't a cadre of angels. Americans would do well to put trust in themselves, to protect themselves, and not so much trust in government. A point which needs to be made more than it is.
