Hey kids! Have you been finding it difficult to smash the state lately?

If you can’t smash the state, maybe you can disassemble it in an orderly manner.


The original version of this post was written before I heard of President Trump’s decision to delegate declassification authority to AG Barr.


An Anon has written about the unelected bureaucrats who are slowing choking the USA to death, and whether Trump might break their chokehold. This seems to be the root of the matter, although this post also presents some current events that might be instrumental in getting the boot of government off the neck of the American people.


‘Swamp’ thwarts Trump with $1.9T ‘hidden tax’ in regulations

President Trump’s administration cut by almost two-thirds the average number of regulations issued for every law passed, but still the “hidden tax” imposed by the unelected bureaucracy was nearly $2 trillion, according to a new analysis. The Competitiveness Enterprise Institute said that the $1.9 trillion in regulation translated into a “burden” of $14,600 on every household, an amount so high that if the costs were a country, it would the ninth largest, just ahead of Canada. The huge number and choking impact on the nation shows just how big a battle Trump’s anti-regulation war faces. During the 2016 campaign and while in office he has railed against the Washington “swamp” that includes unelected federal regulators entrenched in the bureaucracy.

Clyde Wayne Crews Jr., author of the just-released Ten Thousand Commandments: An Annual Snapshot of the Federal Regulatory State, found that Trump has made good on his promise to cut regulations. He noted, for example, that Trump’s government cut the average number of regulations imposed for every new piece of legislation. The average is 27 rules, but the Trump administration cut that to 11 in 2018. Trump also reduced the regulations-filled pages of the Federal Register to a near low. What’s more, the Trump administration “withdrew or delayed” 1,579 Obama rules that were in the pipeline. And, he noted, the Office of Management and Budget reported that agencies cut $33 billion in the “regulatory budget,” and it anticipates additional savings in fiscal year 2019 of another $18 billion.

Still, the costs of existing regulations are enormous, said Crews, vice president for policy and a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. “Despite the progress made on regulatory reform under President Trump, American consumers and businesses are still on the hook for the ‘hidden tax’ of federal regulation,” said Crews. “And that progress is further threatened by President Trump’s own regulatory impulses on issues ranging from antitrust enforcement to trade restrictions to food and drug matters, and more,” he added.

“THE SHADOW GOVERNMENT — USES SES, SERCO, AND OPIC AS PORTALS INTO UNSPEAKABLE CORRUPTION”

“SES & OPIC CONSTITUTES AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL SECRET GOVERNMENT, BUT IT’S WORSE. OTHER GOVERNMENTS HELP DRIVE THE SES SEDITION BUS.”

“The Senior Executive Services (SES) includes over 8,000 Obama stay-behind senior federal employees in all agencies of the U.S. government. They openly state that they cannot be fired by the President, which means they are not accountable to our Republic and have a law unto themselves. See our previous post Obama hired them. Trump cannot fire them. So they say. It went viral 30 days ago with an estimated 500,000 views. The story is out.”

How SES, SERCO & OPIC do the dirty work of the Shadow Government

“The Senior Executive Service (SES) lead America’s workforce. As the

keystone

of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978, the SES was established to “…ensure that the executive management of the Government of the United States is responsive to the needs, policies, and goals of the Nation and otherwise is of the highest quality.” These leaders possess well-honed executive skills and share a broad perspective on government and a public service commitment that is grounded in the Constitution.”

https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/senior-executive-service/

“President Trump is planning to use his executive powers to remove a federal agency, in line with his administration’s goal of cutting what it sees as wasteful spending and inefficiencies, the Washington Post reports.

The big picture: By the fall, the Office of Personnel Management anticipates an executive order that will break up the agency and, at first, assign its responsibilities to 3 different departments. The administration reportedly does not intend to lay off any of its 5,565 employees, but will eventually shrink its workforce through retirements and unfilled vacancies.”

MONTGOMERY, ‘THE HAMMER’ SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM WHISTLEBLOWER, BECAME THE DEEP STATE’S ENEMY NUMBER ONE AFTER EXPOSING THE TRUTH

Dennis Montgomery

By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | May 22, 2019

Remember, do not kill a mockingbird. When a whistleblower is singing for America’s protection, we embrace and celebrate him.

Inventor and software designer Dennis Montgomery, a CIA/DOD/DHS/NSA/FBI  contractor-turned-whistleblower, alerted FBI Director James Comey’s office in 2015 that President Obama’s CIA Director John Brennan and Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had turned the super-surveillance system that Montgomery designed for foreign surveillance, known as THE HAMMER, into a domestic surveillance system.

Montgomery became alarmed when Obama and his intelligence chiefs Brennan and Clapper turned the super-surveillance system against the American people.

Montgomery asserts that Obama, Brennan, and Clapper used THE HAMMER in a diabolically intrusive manner in order to spy on the American people and collect massive amounts of surveillance data for “leverage” and “blackmail.”

THE HAMMER was only to be used for foreign surveillance, not to be weaponized for domestic surveillance against the American people, according to Montgomery and to U.S. military sources.

According to those U.S. military sources, Montgomery’s surveillance technology not only saved American lives as America’s “War on Terror” broadened, but also featured built-in safeguards to prevent the system from ever being used for domestic surveillance.

“Multiple echelons” of government, including the FISA court, had to sign off on each and every foreign surveillance operation conducted with the use of THE HAMMER, those sources say.

Montgomery claims that Brennan and Clapper used the super-surveillance system Montgomery designed to spy on Article III federal judges, including the onetime head of the FISA court Judge Reggie Walton, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and Chief Justice of U.S. Supreme Court John Roberts.

Montgomery’s revelations about his super-surveillance system THE HAMMER call into question Chief Justice Robert’s strange and inexplicable 2012 decision that stood in direct opposition to his own stated legal argument. At the eleventh hour, Roberts flipped and supported the individual mandate for President Obama’s highly unpopular Affordable Care Act.

Montgomery, who is constrained by non-disclosure agreements, has spoken about the system but has not publicly identified the system by name. The secretly-recorded “Whistleblower Tapes” identify the name of the system as “THE HAMMER,” as we first reported in our March 17, 2017 exclusive exposé. The March 2017 WikiLeaks CIA Vault 7 document dump confirms the name of the system as THE HAMMER (HAMR).

Military sources, we can now report exclusively, confirm the existence of the super-surveillance system known as THE HAMMER. Those sources caution that the super-surveillance system was only to be used for foreign surveillance.

Comey Knew

In August 2015, Montgomery turned over to FBI General Counsel James Baker, who represented the office of FBI Director Comey, physical evidence, in the form of 47 computer hard drives containing 600 million pages of documents.

Montgomery maintains that the data on the hard drives prove the existence of THE HAMMER and prove that Brennan and Clapper engaged in illegal domestic surveillance, despite the existence of safeguards that were already in place.

In August 19, 2015, Montgomery turned over the hard drives under two immunity agreements struck with the U.S. Department of Justice. The 600 million pages of documents stored on those hard drives, when stacked one upon another, would measure a stunning thirty miles high, says Montgomery.

The FBI provided Montgomery with a detailed receipt for the 47 hard drives, including handwritten descriptions of each and every hard drive.

FBI Director Jim Comey took Montgomery’s evidence and buried it.

Montgomery’s claim that Obama, Brennan, and Clapper illegally spied on millions of Americans is by itself explosive.

Montgomery’s identification, by name, of one particular U.S. citizen that Montgomery insists was under constant surveillance “for years” by Obama, Brennan, and Clapper via THE HAMMER has led Obama’s inner circle to take desperate measures.

The name of that U.S. citizen targeted by THE HAMMER is Donald J. Trump.

Whistleblower Tapes: Trump Wiretapped “A Zillion Times” By ‘The Hammer,’ Brennan’s and Clapper’s Secret Computer System – The American Report

The Whistleblower Tapes released by U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow reveal that Donald Trump was wiretapped a “zillion times.”

The CIA feared Trump, maintains Montgomery.

Donald Trump and his late father Fred Trump are both known for their lifelong aversion to communism.

President Obama’s CIA Director, admitted communist John Brennan, feared Trump.

As we previously reported, Brennan and Comey both affirmed their belief in communism.

We noted in our May 12, 2019 exlusive exposé connecting “THE HAMMER” to FBI Director Comey’s launch of the Trump Russia Collusion investigation that John Brennan admitted  during his initial CIA polygraph test that he voted for Communist Party USA (CPUSA) candidate Gus Hall in the 1976 presidential election.

Comey, we simultaneously reported, told New York Magazine “I’d moved from Communist to whatever I am now.”

Frank Marshall Davis, President Barack Obama’s mentor during Obama’s formative years in Hawaii, was a card-carrying Communist Party USA member (CPUSA member #47544) and suspected KGB agent who was listed on the FBI’s Security Index, Davis’s lengthy FBI file reveals. According to Paul Kengor, “Davis hailed Joe Stalin’s state for its alleged freedom and democracy.”

Stalin could only have dreamed of a Soviet surveillance system with capabilities approaching those of THE HAMMER. Russian historian Alexander Solzhenitsyn says that Stalin murdered 60 million of his own countrymen during his reign of terror.

With THE HAMMER, Brennan, Clapper, and Obama were implementing a political system — communism — that is antithetical to America’s system of justice and to the U.S. Constitution.

Under the U.S. Constitution, the purpose of American government is to secure the rights of each American to life, liberty, and private property.

Brennan, Clapper, and Obama illegally used THE HAMMER as a technological instrument of tyranny in order to take away Americans’ inalienable rights as outlined under the U.S. Constitution.

These conspirators transformed a high technology tool designed to protect the American people from foreign threats into a tool of tyranny.

During a 2017 radio interview with his attorney Larry Klayman, Montgomery explained:

I provided to the FBI seventeen businesses of Donald Trump, including the Trump Tower, the Trump leasing programs, all of these different programs, and including Trump himself and the various family members that had been wiretapped under these programs. There has been a wiretap on Trump for years…

…I was a CIA contractor both under John Brennan and under James Clapper and these individuals were running domestic surveillance programs in the United States collecting information on Americans…they collected everything they could find. Bank accounts, phone numbers, chats, emails, and they collected a massive amount of it under the Obama administration.

According to sources, Comey was the general counsel and senior vice president of Lockheed Martin when Montgomery was paid $8,000 to use a supercomputer at a Lockheed facility in the Los Angeles area to collate the tranche of data harvested by The Hammer into individual files for each of the individuals being targeted.

“The proof of Donald Trump being wiretapped is in the documents that were handed over to the FBI” Attorney Klayman told reporter Fanning.

Brennan and Clapper covertly operated THE HAMMER out of a U.S. government facility in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Fort Washington, Maryland, according to the secretly-recorded audio tapes released by a U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow in 2015.

From September 13, 2001 until June 2006, Clapper was the director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), known until 2003 as the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA).  Clapper’s previous post as NGA director is an important detail because NGA is known to operate out of Fort Washington.

Obama and his henchmen were using THE HAMMER to create a tyrannical police state in America worthy of the East German Stasi or Hitler’s Gestapo.

According to Montgomery, the FBI, under Director Robert Mueller’s leadership, provided the computers for THE HAMMER super-surveillance system.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion investigation entirely cleared President Donald Trump of collusion with the Russians.

Regardless of the evidence and the $35 million dollar two-year investigation, many, including John Brennan and James Clapper and, according to Democrats’ spin, Robert Mueller himself, continue to smear and characterize President Trump as guilty of collusion and treason.

.

THE HAMMER Was Ground Zero Of the Trump Russia Collusion Hoax; Obama Administration Insiders Are Panicking

As Department of Justice investigators begin the hunt for the true origins of the Russia collusion investigation, Democrat insiders are beginning to unravel. Blood is in the water. And it is their own.

Brennan, Clapper, and Comey are maintaining and even ramping up their relentless tempo of frenetic television appearances as they struggle to keep their stories straight.  The conspirators are turning on one another.

COUP D’ÉTAT: DOJ, FBI OFFICIALS ON MUELLER’S RUSSIA TEAM IN COVER UP OF MUELLER’S, CLAPPER’S, AND BRENNAN’S SURVEILLANCE ‘HAMMER’ THAT SPIED ON TRUMP, STRZOK-PAGE TEXT SHOWS – The American Report

Many of these insiders appear to be well aware of THE HAMMER and of the Obama administration’s illegal surveillance of Donald Trump.

Evelyn Farkas, a former Obama administration Defense Department official and Russia specialist, blurted out during a March 2, 2017 television appearance on MSNBC “the Trump folks if they found out how we knew what we knew about the Trump staff dealing with Russians that they would try to compromise the sources and methods meaning that we would no longer have access to that intelligence.”

The unravelling of the Russia collusion scheme and the coup d’etat will lead to the trial of the century that will make the Rosenbergs look like small-time crooks.

Our May 12, 2019 exclusive feature investigation “Comey Launched Trump Russia Investigation Day After General Exposed ‘The Hammer’” first identified THE HAMMER as ground zero of the Trump Russia collusion investigation.

The Russia Collusion investigation was a coup launched in response to the exposure of THE HAMMER.

When two four-star flag officers of sterling reputation brought THE HAMMER to America’s airwaves the Deep State panicked.

U.S. Air Force General Thomas McInerney (Ret.), U.S. Navy Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons (Ret.), and Dr. Dave Janda, during the March 19, 2017 broadcast of Janda’s “Operation Freedom” terrestrial radio program, dared to bring the truth to the American people.

Within a matter of hours, the Deep State jumped into action.

COMEY LAUNCHED TRUMP RUSSIA INVESTIGATION DAY AFTER GENERAL EXPOSED ‘THE HAMMER’ – The American Report

Fanning and Jones revealed on May 12, 2019 at The American Report:

FBI Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division Peter Strzok and his supposed paramour, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, exchanged a cryptic, indeed coded, text message on Sunday, March 19, 2017, twenty-six minutes after retired U.S. Air Force Four Star General Thomas McInerney read our exclusive “Whistleblower Tapes” exposé over America’s airwaves, revealing “The Hammer”…

…Late that Sunday evening, just hours after General McInerney’s radio appearance, Strzok and Page exchanged a text message that explicitly referenced Dennis Montgomery and Montgomery’s attorney Larry E. Klayman.

General McInerney appeared on Dr. Dave Janda’s “Operation Freedom” that broadcasts from terrestrial radio station WAAM 1600.

The next morning, the Russian Collusion investigation was born.

Early the following morning, Monday, March 20, 2017, FBI Director Jim Comey announced before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that the FBI Counterintelligence Division, where Strzok served as Deputy Assistant Director, was investigating Trump’s connections to the Kremlin, and that the FBI had “no information” to support Trump’s tweet claiming that President Obama wiretapped Trump.

Montgomery’s Journey From Computer Genius To Enemy Of The Deep State

Dennis Montgomery was celebrated and hailed from many quarters as a “computer genius.”

Montgomery was later reduced from whistleblower to enemy number one of the Deep State, with purpose and forethought. Those holding and abusing positions of power within the intelligence community who had previously hired Dennis Montgomery as a national security contractor for classified projects could not afford to have him expose their duplicitous and treasonous actions.

“IT IS NOT THE FACTS THAT MATTER, IT IS THE PERCEPTION”

Montgomery claims that the FBI buried its investigation into his federal whistleblower claims about illegal domestic surveillance and that U.S. intelligence agencies, several years earlier, attempted to destroy his reputation.

According to Montgomery, the same intelligence agencies, after they had finished smearing his reputation, quietly rehired him.

In 2011, James Risen and Eric Lichtblau authored a New York Times article in which they painted Montgomery as a fraud, citing CIA sources.

In 2016, Montgomery sued Risen and the publisher of Risen’s book Pay any Price: Greed, Power, and Endless War for defamation over a chapter that portrayed Montgomery’s work for the U.S. government as a hoax.

Lichtblau has been exposed. Lichtblau, who was working as CNN editor, and two other reporters resigned from CNN in June 2017 after CNN retracted their discredited story linking the Trump transition team to a Russian investment fund. Only two months earlier, CNN had recruited Lichtblau to its investigative unit.

Montgomery stated:

They [the intelligence agencies] leaked false information about me in 2009 and 2011 to the press to discredit me in case their domestic surveillance programs ever became public. Somebody leaked my name to [New York Times reporter James Risen] saying that my work for the government didn’t work and so forth, which is ridiculous.

My work saved lives…he knew that I could not respond to his [Risen’s] articles because I was under U.S. protective gag order on me saying I could not respond to anything, and I had the state secrets privilege filed against me that if I would have violated I would have been charged with treason under the U.S. Espionage Act…

…Stroke or no stroke, I am going to expose the CIA and NSA misdeeds until the American people know the truth. I have put my family for years at great risk by coming forward. This is my last stand for America.

Inside information into the years-long child abuse saga involving Louisville Metropolitan Police Department (LMPD) officers is now being revealed. The city commissioned former U.S. Attorney Kerry Harvey to investigate the LMPD Explorers program for children to determine if sexual misconduct, abuse, and even rape were widespread with police officers involved in the program.

Hardly an isolated incident, in total, a series of seven lawsuits names more than eight current or former LMPD officers.

In a disturbing description to FOX News this week, one of the victims went into graphic detail on how he was abused and raped by people he looked up to.

“C.F.,” who uses a pseudonym to protect his identity in a civil lawsuit, said that what should have been a golden opportunity to learn about law enforcement became a nightmare of exploitation and sexual abuse.

Two former LMPD officers have already been convicted of serious crimes, as The Free Thought Project reported, and the city, with good reason, wanted to know more about how police handled the complaints from parents and reports children were being groomed, propositioned, and even raped.

As TFTP reported in October 2017:

Brandon Wood…allegedly raped a teenage boy, both in [his] car and in a residence, and filmed the crime for the purposes of producing pornography. [Kenneth] Betts and Wood were police officer mentors in the Youth Explorer Program for kids who want to one day become law enforcement officers. It was inside the mentorship program that they are accused of finding their victims.

As FOX reports, Wood pled guilty to a federal attempted enticement charges and is scheduled to be sentenced May 28. Betts pled guilty to federal enticement and and child pornography charges and will be sentenced May 23, although that date could be delayed.

Betts struck a plea deal which was going to allow him to only serve 10-15 years, but U.S. District Judge David Hale said this sentence was too lenient and issued a continuance for sentencing to get Betts to serve more time.

None of these charges would have happened had the victims not sought out lawsuits as the department had no interest in pursuing their own—allowing this abuse to go on for years.

The original accusations were followed by lawsuits with one lawyer reportedly representing five victims abused by officers inside the Explorers program. Now, that number has jumped to 15 victims.

Not only did parents accuse the police officers’ superiors of doing nothing about their criminal complaints, the Police Officers’ union also began to stonewall, filing a lawsuit in an attempt to prevent investigators from interviewing more cops. As TFTP reported:

Just as the investigation into alleged sex scandals involving teenage explorers and Louisville police officers was progressing, the police union stepped in and filed a lawsuit to prevent at least three other officers from testifying in the case. The River City Fraternal Order of Police (RCFOP) filed a lawsuit mid-August to prevent the officers from incriminating themselves in the involuntary interviews with a private attorney hired at the request of the mayor’s office. Officers Matthew Gelhausen, Joseff Keeling and Paul Paris were protected from being forced to give a deposition to the lawyer as a result of the lawsuit filed by their union.

Harvey was paid $140,000 to compile the report and released his findings, which took a year to complete. His team concluded that was there were indeed mistakes made in handling the criminal complaints but denied any cover-up within the department.

It is important to note that several sections in his report have been redacted and the public does not have access to what was written because those sections have been completely blacked out to readers. According to WDRB’s coverage of the report’s release, the investigator concluded there were numerous ways the police “mishandled” the investigations into criminal activity on the part of the officers involved.

  1. The investigator concluded the supervisors of the Explorers program should have noticed, “a pattern could be seen that Betts viewed Explorers as potential sexual partners,” and interviewed every Explorer who ever had contact with Betts.
  2. LMPD investigators should have taken their findings to the prosecutor’s office to see if criminal charges were warranted.
  3. Investigators failed to conduct a forensic investigation into Betts’ cell phone, the same one he allegedly used to proposition a 16-year-old for sex.
  4. Investigators failed to conduct a forensic interview with the girl, separate from her parents, an interview which likely would have been recorded.
  5. Investigators deleted nude photographs on the girl’s phone which should have been saved as evidence.
  6. An interview was conducted between police, the parents of the girl, and the girl but failed to record it.
  7. Betts was allowed to resign. Harvey took umbrage with that decision writing he should have been fired and, “the record should be clear as to the nature of Betts’ misconduct and the decision to fire him as a consequence.

Even with all of these so-called “mistakes,” Harvey concluded in his 90-page report that “there was no effort in the LMPD senior command staff to cover up allegations of misconduct in the Explorer program.”

It may be easy to arrive at such a conclusion, especially since the city commissioned the investigation, presumably to get to the bottom of the matter but essentially to make the city appear as though it is doing its due diligence. However, when looking at this scenario as if Woods and Betts were not cops, and the ones investigating them were not their employers and fellow comrades in arms, a different scenario might emerge.

If a child had gone to the police with claims that her teacher was propositioning her for sex, the police would have set up an elaborate “to catch a pedophile” type of sting. The entire incident would have been recorded. The teacher would have been arrested, placed in an orange jumpsuit, filmed as he went into court, his mug shot would have been all over every local news outlet and on the internet, and the victim’s family would be interviewed to be able to express their outrage that a person in a position of authority would do such harm to a child.

Criminal charges were only filed against the two officers after another male victim filed a lawsuit against the department, the officers, and the city alleging that he had been raped as a teenager, and the assault was filmed by the two officers. There are currently seven civil lawsuits pending against officers involved in the Explorers program.

Harvey also blames the police officers’ union (Fraternal Order of Police) for refusing to allow his team to interview active duty police officers whose names, among others, were mentioned above, and states that this stonewalling impeded his investigation. One might be tempted to think the union would want anyone suspected of or having knowledge of cop-involved pedophilia out of their ranks.

According to Harvey’s report, Our inability to interview active-duty officers has, however, limited our access to material witnesses.” Harvey and his team were asked by the FBI to, in essence, stay out of its way and not interfere in the ongoing federal investigation into sex abuse crimes within the Explorers program at LMPD. It is unclear how far along the FBI’s investigation is in bringing federal sex abuse crimes, if any, against both past and current officers. Harvey also stated that a number of additional factors limited his investigation.

First, he was not given access to the items seized by the LMPD’s “Public Integrity Unit” when it conducted search warrants and seizures of items such as cell phones, social media accounts, and items taken from homes and vehicles. Harvey’s report also stated that since the team did not have subpoena power, no one they contacted was compelled by law to cooperate. As a result, Harvey’s subsequent investigation focused almost exclusively on Wood and Betts, two former LMPD officers who have both since been convicted for abusing multiple children.

Even with all of these so-called “mistakes,” Harvey concluded in his 90-page report that “there was no effort in the LMPD senior command staff to cover up allegations of misconduct in the Explorer program.”

It may be easy to arrive at such a conclusion, especially since the city commissioned the investigation, presumably to get to the bottom of the matter but essentially to make the city appear as though it is doing its due diligence. However, when looking at this scenario as if Woods and Betts were not cops, and the ones investigating them were not their employers and fellow comrades in arms, a different scenario might emerge.

If a child had gone to the police with claims that her teacher was propositioning her for sex, the police would have set up an elaborate “to catch a pedophile” type of sting. The entire incident would have been recorded. The teacher would have been arrested, placed in an orange jumpsuit, filmed as he went into court, his mug shot would have been all over every local news outlet and on the internet, and the victim’s family would be interviewed to be able to express their outrage that a person in a position of authority would do such harm to a child.

Criminal charges were only filed against the two officers after another male victim filed a lawsuit against the department, the officers, and the city alleging that he had been raped as a teenager, and the assault was filmed by the two officers. There are currently seven civil lawsuits pending against officers involved in the Explorers program.

Harvey also blames the police officers’ union (Fraternal Order of Police) for refusing to allow his team to interview active duty police officers whose names, among others, were mentioned above, and states that this stonewalling impeded his investigation. One might be tempted to think the union would want anyone suspected of or having knowledge of cop-involved pedophilia out of their ranks.

According to Harvey’s report, Our inability to interview active-duty officers has, however, limited our access to material witnesses.” Harvey and his team were asked by the FBI to, in essence, stay out of its way and not interfere in the ongoing federal investigation into sex abuse crimes within the Explorers program at LMPD. It is unclear how far along the FBI’s investigation is in bringing federal sex abuse crimes, if any, against both past and current officers. Harvey also stated that a number of additional factors limited his investigation.

First, he was not given access to the items seized by the LMPD’s “Public Integrity Unit” when it conducted search warrants and seizures of items such as cell phones, social media accounts, and items taken from homes and vehicles. Harvey’s report also stated that since the team did not have subpoena power, no one they contacted was compelled by law to cooperate. As a result, Harvey’s subsequent investigation focused almost exclusively on Wood and Betts, two former LMPD officers who have both since been convicted for abusing multiple children.

    It would seem that if Trump’s power with signing statements can remove an entire federal agency, he might be able to warn America about the jews and their destructive nature.

    • Remember that Trump was recruited and supported by spooks and high-ranking military guys. Trump is an outsider relative to most of D.C., but Trump is connected to much of the Power Elite. Even if the cannibal child traffickers are shut down, that doesn’t mean that the USA will be returned to a pristine state.
