…testing the willingness of suspects to take certain steps in a conspiracy is one thing; actively encouraging them to commit a violent, criminal act is another.
Phi Beta Iota: The FBI is clearly out of control. One book has documented 175 instances where the FBI incited terror. Special Agent Coleen Rowley (now retired) has spoken publicly about how the FBI uses terrorism as a budget-building exercise. Of course there are “real” terrorists” and real “nut jobs” out there, but as a general statement, it would appear that the FBI is directly connected with, inspiring, funding, and generally helping to happen, over 80% of the terrorist events in the USA. The Director of the FBI appears comfortable covering up false flag events used to inspire fear and advance the gun control agenda of the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party generally (now the party of the rich who are terrified of what might happen if the larger public realizes just how deliberately the 1% have been impoverishing and malnourishing the 99%). Between FBI malfeasance, neo-fascist use of mind control to create real shooters who would not otherwise have gone on rampages, and real nut jobs who have given up hope and are angry about everything, we seem to be assuring a winter of persistent violence. The FBI should be helping, not hurting. Clearly neither the White House nor the Department of Justice are concerned about FBI malfeasance — this should be an underlying issue in the forthcoming presidential election.
