The clip below is 30-minutes in length. Do me a favor and watch it. These three FBI whistleblowers have put everything on the line to inform you about what has happened within the FBI. As we know, the agency is no longer recognizable. All of those surveillance laws enacted following 9/11 allegedly touting the need to protect Americans from those pesky “terrists” have been turned inward towards Americans. And these fine men want, hell, need you to know about it.
After watching the full hearing on the Weaponization today there are two observations worth noting.
First, these three FBI whistleblowers were impeccable witnesses. Americans would be proud of them. Moreover, their character, their allegiance to the Constitution, their oaths, their integrity and their fortitude are all qualities Americans take for granted when such individuals dedicate their lives to protecting our home, our national security.
Sadly, these valiant FBI agents, dads, brothers and friends are being retaliated against simply for questioning their superiors unlawful orders. They know their rights and they know the law. Rather than following the laws on the books for whistleblowers, the leadership inside the FBI chose to suspend them resulting in loss of income and their health insurance, fellow agents closed ranks, leadership stripped them of their security clearances and would not release them so they could/can seek employment elsewhere.
After filing a formal whistleblower complaint, former FBI agent O’Boyle accepted a transfer to another Field office and literally with the family packed up, the kids are in the car and they are on the road he received notice he was suspended. One could easily agree these actions by the FBI was intentional. Stranded with no income and all of their belongings being held up by the FBI, the entire O’Boyle family endured pure hell. Listen to this man’s testimony and while you are hearing his words consider what you would do if you found yourself in his shoes.
There is no question these three men did the right thing by coming forward by formally filing whistleblower complaints. And there is no question, after hearing their testimony, the leadership at the FBI knowingly and with malice retaliated against them.
The entirety of the FBI leadership must be fired. The whole lot of them. They have chosen a paycheck over their integrity and their oaths. These are not qualities of leaders but rather of bullies or better yet, pussies.
The second observation worth noting is what the hell is wrong with these Democrats who keep getting elected by their voters? Do these voters pay the slightest bit of attention to how radical they are? Do they hold them accountable in any way? Because their behavior towards these three whistleblowers is beyond abhorrent. One can ask questions without taking cheap shots or being demeaning towards their fellow man.
And since when did Democratic voters hold the FBI in such high regard? I was an active Dem for 50 years and never once did any suggest the FBI was golden. You wouldn’t know that after today’s hearing. They love them some FBI!
Which speaks volumes. More and more I am of the opinion that Democratic voters think their vote is winning some sort of popularity contest rather than taking policy making seriously. Because if they did hold their representatives accountable these Democrats would have shown some decency and respect.
These three whistleblowers, and the trail of whistleblowers behind them, are those who love their homeland, believe in the power of the constitution, take their oaths seriously and have dedicated their lives to making sure we American’s are safe and protected.
They, and all other whistleblowers who find themselves in similar situations deserve a full-hearing of their concerns, effective management from their leadership and common decency. They certainly don’t deserve the crap they’ve been shoveled to date.
