Abolish the FBI, America's KGB

• Jacob Hornberger-Future Freedom Foundation

In his ongoing fight with President Trump, former FBI Director James Comey is now speculating that the reason that President Trump hasn't adopted the fierce anti-Russia mindset of the U.S. national-security establishment is because the Russians might have secret dirt on the president and are blackmailing him into establishing normal relations between the United States and Russia.

There is another possibility — one also involving blackmail of the president — that unfortunately Comey doesn't seem to consider: that the U.S. national-security establishment, including the FBI, has acquired secret dirt on the president and has blackmailed him into embracing and supporting their forever wars and their permanent control over the U.S. government and the American people.

Before one cries "Conspiracy theory, Jacob!" let us keep in mind two things:

First, if the Russian Deep State is capable of blackmail, as Comey suggests, so is the U.S. Deep State. I haven't seen anyone in the establishment press say, "Conspiracy theory, James!" in response to Comey's assertion. That's because the establishment press believes that blackmail by the Russian Deep State is a reasonable possibility. It's only when it comes to the U.S. Deep State that they react with horror and exclaim, "My Deep State would never do such a nefarious thing. It's only the Russian Deep State that would do such thing."

Second, the FBI was founded on dirt and blackmail. That's what J. Edgar Hoover, the longtime FBI director specialized in — spying on people with the intent of discovering their dark secrets and then blackmailing them with it, with the intent of maintaining Hoover's and the FBI's ever-expanding power within the U.S. government and ever-growing control over American society.

Don't forget COINTELPRO, the infamous FBI program that involved illegal surveillance of the American people, just like the KGB did to the Russian people. In fact, President Truman even compared the FBI to the Gestapo, the national police force of the Nazi regime, writing "We want no Gestapo or Secret Police. F.B.I. is tending in that direction."

For an excellent example of the use of secret dirt and blackmail on the part of the FBI, just recall what these people did to Martin Luther King (who they now conveniently extol as a great American). They illegally spied on him because they were convinced that he was part of a worldwide communist conspiracy to take over America and the world. In the process of doing that, they learned that King had apparently engaged in extra-marital relations. They then used that illegally acquired dirt to blackmail King into hopefully committing suicide. It was all done under the supervision and with the full support of none other than the FBI director himself, J. Edgar Hoover.

The crimes that the FBI enforces, like kidnapping or transporting underaged girls across state lines for nefarious reasons, were always just a veneer to justify the existence of a national police force that specialized in illegal surveillance, dirt, and blackmail. They wanted to make it look like law enforcement was what the FBI was all about. In reality, the FBI was about secret surveillance, acquiring dirt on people, and then blackmailing them to maintaining Hoover's and the FBI's grip on power.

Ancient history? Come on! They have named their building after their icon. It's called the J. Edgar Hoover Building. Any normal person would be ashamed of having had a scoundrel and blackmailer in charge of his agency. Not the FBI. They glorify Hoover. They revere him. They honor him by having their building named after him.

In his presidential campaign, Trump made it clear that he was opposed to the forever wars in which the U.S. national-security establishment has embroiled America. Trump was going to put a stop to them. He was going to bring the troops home. He was questioning America's roll in NATO, the Cold War dinosaur that should have gone out of existence with the end of the Cold War.
