In the midst of a host of scandals plaguing the FBI, ranging from spying on Americans to intimidating their political foes, the Obama regime's solution is to put James B. Comey, former Deputy Attorney General (AG) in the Bush II administration, in charge of the FBI.
Comey was the Deputy AG who, along with former AG John Ashcroft and FBI Director Robert Mueller, was praised for taking an unsuccessful stand against including warrantless wiretaps in the Patriot Act.
What you will not hear from the Obama-friendly media, and our somnolent members of Congress, is this: Not only was the Patriot Act expanded under the supervision of Comey, Mueller and Ashcroft, when Comey left the AG’s office in 2005 he went to work as the top lawyer for…wait for it…"Big Brother" himself – Lockheed Martin.
When most people hear Lockheed Martin they think military contracts. Well, welcome to 1984. "Big Brother" is another name for Lockheed Martin, and security and surveillance is their game. They've been working closely with the National Security Agency (AKA: NSA, as in No Such Agency) for many years.
So ask yourself: Why would the Obama regime appoint a new FBI Director who works for a prime contractor that sells NSA the technology to spy on Americans? Would PETA hire a fur coat distributor?
Oh, by the way, where’s John Ashcroft today? Why he’s on the Board of Directors of Blackwater USA, which now goes by the harmless sounding name – Academi – conjuring up images of ivy-covered buildings and lounging intellectuals.
So in the days ahead, when the media and politicians tell you that James B. Comey will stand up for your civil liberties as FBI Director (citing a hospital room performance over the Patriot Act), remember: If Comey didn't support spying on Americans, why would he work for a leading company that sells the government the tools to spy on Americans?
Are the manufacturers of hunting rifles against hunting?
