A January 19th Department of Justice memo obtained by Evan Semones shows that intelligence operatives are expressing reluctance about the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act (H.R.5602), which is being frantically pushed by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin.

The dispute revolves around transparency, disempowering the FBI by deepening the bureaucracy, and fears that open politicization will exacerbate the DoJ and FBI’s credibility crisis.

Most of the reforms Durbin and company are seeking are redundant, the memo says. Federal agencies have already been prioritizing “domestic extremism,” and they are claiming that creating new offices and requirements for monthly reports on “domestic terror” arrests would burden them with too much paper work.

One aspect of H.R.5602 the DoJ expresses strong opposition to is a provision requiring them to draw up reports detailing the names and qualifications of individuals hired to provide the FBI’s Joint Terrorist Task Forces with “domestic terror” training.

Their excuse for opposing this is that publicizing the names of who exactly the federal government is instructing the FBI and its partners on what groups and individuals to target as “domestic terrorists” is a threat to their privacy and potentially could make them targets of said groups.

Their stated reasoning is a lie.

It is public knowledge that the FBI continues to work closely with agenda-ridden groups like the Anti-Defamation League, National Center for Transgender Equity, Human Rights Campaign and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Organizations like the ADL and SPLC have along with other left-wing NGOs positioned themselves as white, militia and even conservative “extremism experts.

In 2014, many had assumed that the FBI had severed ties with the SPLC — which goes out of its way to employ actual extremists — because they had erased their name from their list of partners following public pushback. But in 2018, Rep. Matt Gaetz discovered that the SPLC and the FBI were still working together. The exact nature of this relationship is kept opaque.

In response to Gaetz’s inquiry on the subject, the FBI gave a very general response, “The FBI has forged partnerships nationally and locally with many civil rights organizations to establish rapport, share information, address concerns, and cooperate in solving problems.” None of their “partners” are right-leaning, or even groups specializing in privacy rights and civil liberties.

One law enforcement source who has attended FBI sponsored “counter-terrorism” and “extremism” seminars told National Justice that the ADL is involved in authoring JTTF materials, which are highly editorialized and intended to politically prejudice police against the Zionist group’s critics.

The source’s claims are substantiated by the ADL’s Anita Gray, who upon receiving an award from FBI Director Christopher Wray, bragged about “working closely with a bunch of people at the FBI,” and declared that the ADL is “the country’s largest non-governmental trainers of law enforcement.”

In other words, the caginess about letting the public know who they are using as “domestic terrorism” instructors and analysts is driven by fears of public scrutiny and controversy over bias and ideological animus.

While the DoJ and FBI don’t want us to know specifics, their relationship with the ADL is an open secret.

FBI.gov hosts a self-proclaimed “love letter” to the Israel lobbyists from former Director James Comey in 2017, where he told them,

I first met with you in the spring of 2014, when I was relatively new on the job—just seven months in.I sang your praises as an organization that fights for inclusivity and diversity, equality and justice. An organization that works with us to fight hate crime and terrorism, to educate law enforcement, and to build bridges with underrepresented communities.

I labeled that last speech a love letter to the ADL. Three years later I can say, from the perspective of the FBI, we’re still in love with you.

The speech ends with the following,

You make us better.

For more than 100 years, you have advocated for fairness and equality. For inclusion and acceptance. You have never been indifferent or complacent. And the word “silence” simply isn’t part of your vocabulary.

You have advocated for voting rights and immigration issues. You have fought against anti-Muslim prejudice and cyber bullying.

You have stood up for LGBT and gender equality. You have pushed and prodded for hate crime legislation. And you have helped us identify and track domestic and international terrorist threats.

And for all of that, we are grateful. As a law enforcement and national security agency, yes. But also as Americans. As humans.

My thanks to this room full of people who have chosen to devote their lives to ensuring that evil does not hold the field. To Jonathan Greenblatt and David Friedman and Michael Lieberman, and everyone who is part of this important work.

And on behalf of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, thank you for standing by us, for giving us the benefit of your experience, and for making us better.

And so I close my letter,

Love,

The FBI

The DoJ memo to Durbin goes on to express fears that having a direct connection to the Biden administration will lead to perceptions that their “domestic terrorism” crusade is politically motivated.

With federal prosecutors are quietly dropping cases for violent anarchist rioters while fiercely prosecuting veterans and grandmothers just for entering the Capitol off hours, who do they think they’re fooling?

  1. The Zionist lobby is holding the American security apparatus in a friendship hug which is purposeful.

    If the three-letter agencies were ever to encounter pro-Zionist espionage on their watch, it would be quietly handled collegially. A phone call here, a phone call there, and the misunderstandings are all gone. Friends don’t make trouble for friends.

    The threat is that anyone in the FBI, NSA, or DHS who doesn’t get with the program is going to suffer in his job and pension.

    The Zio-lobby hated the OathKeepers, because the OathKeepers were a competing NGO with a competing ethos. OathKeepers were recruiting the security apparatus people the Zio-lobby wants to keep under its thumb.

    It is public knowledge that the FBI continues to work closely with agenda-ridden groups like the Anti-Defamation League, National Center for Transgender Equity, Human Rights Campaign and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Organizations like the ADL and SPLC have along with other left-wing NGOs positioned themselves as white, militia and even conservative “extremism experts… The DoJ memo to Durbin goes on to express fears that having a direct connection to the Biden administration will lead to perceptions that their “domestic terrorism” crusade is politically motivated.

    Are the Zionists politically motivated, socially motivated or cosmically motivated? How about all three?

    The federal government has allowed the “Jewish lobby” to maneuver it behind the wrong horse. Or rather, has corrupted the federal government to get behind the Zionist horse.

    All the mistakes it has made (geopolitically and domestically) and will continue to make as the Anglosphere Empire continues disintegrate are attributable to the bad karma of the Zionists, who are the definition of insanity (continuing to the same evil over and over and expecting different results) because they’re irrational fanatics and megalomaniacs, utterly convinced that their rainbow kabbalah is the source of existence.

    This is what insane Jewish egomaniacs do: attribute the glory and beauty of natural phenomenon as old as the world to Jewishness, and take “ownership” of it for purposes of exploitation. They do the same to governments and nations. They’re the ultimate parasites.

    When you think about it, this is exactly what they did on the shores of the Mediterranean thousands of years ago, and have been doing ever since.

    In many ways, all the systematic wars and destruction of the natural world by the ZOG-infected going back eons can be laid at Jewish feet, who continue to associate themselves with the mystical rainbow as yet another parasite means of shilling for their true destructive, exploitive and murderous nature.

    FBI = KGB for the NWO Agenda

  4. The love letter admits that FBI sees itself as a “law enforcement” agency.

    Police powers were left to the States.

    Also alarming, the function of the legal police continues to tilt in the direction of enforcement (e.g. speeding tickets).

    The job of the cops is to bring-in those accused of real wrongdoing (e.g. where the victims, and their “losses”, are clearly identifiable), and preferably alive.

    Taxpayers who are peaceful, not bothering anybody, etc. have no need for armed (and how!), government bureaucrats, hired by agenda-driven, busybody politicians, to tell them how to run their lives.

    [MORE]

    Typically, net proceeds from criminal/nuisance imposed fees, like fines for motor vehicle-related violation, are reserved for public education (babysitting) purposes.

  5. The gaping hole in this article, is the bit where every “domestic terrorist” gets recruited, armed, assisted and then arrested by the FBI just before they commit their “act of terror”, while every single actual horrible mass murder goes by without as much as a howdy-do from the privately-owned and privately-run Federal Reserve Bank’s armed tax-enforcement agency, the FBI.
    This tax-enforcement role is best illustrated by the FBI’s attitude towards drugs, prostitution and child exploitation; they swarm over every individual or gang that intrudes on that very lucrative turf, while standing guard for the “properly licenced” dealers, like the Clintons (cocaine) Bushes (heroin) Epstein, Gates, Adelson etc etc etc.
    Contraband is nothing other than state-protected trade monopoly, and THAT is what the FBI’s brief is, protecting the Mafias, like the CDC and ATF.

  6. Their excuse for opposing this is that publicizing the names of who exactly the federal government is instructing the FBI and its partners on

    More ‘bergs than the North & South Poles.

    They make hair splitting an art form, accomplishing nothing.

    The Izzie fifth column is going to stuff this bill up FBI’s ass and FBI is going to relax and enjoy it. Izzie spies need this bill so they can sic cops on people who call out Jew State bribery and blackmail.

    Izzies are cowardly weasels who can only win wars on eight year old boys or teenage girls, so they need the professional assholes of FBI to push Americans around for them.

  9. FBI.gov hosts a self-proclaimed “love letter” to the Israel lobbyists from former Director James Comey in 2017, where he told them,

    That’s some remarkably sycophantic slobbering from Comey — directed at an openly semitic supremacist anti-White hate group. Yet morons still attempt to deny the power (and even the existence) of institutional semitism.
