DOJ Actions Reveal Their Playbook – What Happens Next?
The 12th in a series of articles that examine where America is headed following the 2020 election.
This week, the DOJ decided not to prosecute the police officer who killed Ashli Babbit at the January 6th Capitol protest. They’ve also refused to release the name of the officer who shot Babbit. Yesterday, Samuel Montoya, a journalist who captured Babbit’s murder on video, was arrested on charges including interfering with government business and disorderly and disruptive conduct. Today, a founding member of the Oath Keepers, Jon Ryan Schaffer, pled guilty to multiple charges related to the protest and has agreed to cooperate with investigators. Much can be learned about the deep state’s playbook by examining these and other actions.
Let’s begin by looking at the big picture.
Barack Obama has been used by globalist billionaire George Soros to weaken America in the hope of bringing it under the control of a one-world superstate. Late in 2015, the Obama intelligence community launched a campaign against high-profile patriots and President Trump. Their opening move was the now-debunked claim of colluding with Russia during the 2016 election. They followed that with a smear campaign against General Flynn with the goal of removing him as Trump’s National Security Adviser.
The intelligence community used a legitimate phone call between Flynn and a Russian ambassador as a pretext for claims of collusion with Russia, knowing the details of the call would not be made public due to national security concerns. With support from a corrupt media complex, the DOJ opened an investigation of the Trump campaign then prosecuted and harassed patriots in Trump’s orbit. The larger goal was to make an example of anyone who dared to challenge the establishment. But there were other goals. Focusing on allegations that Flynn and Trump conspired with Russia allowed them to distract the public’s attention away from crimes committed by Obama and the Clintons.
Fast forward four years.
The DOJ and FBI claim that patriots came together in Washington DC on January 6th to overthrow the government. They continue to spread unfounded allegations that conservative patriotic groups like the Oath Keepers and Three Percenters are a threat to national security. Yesterday, Devin Nunes responded to allegations to that effect:
“The Democrats see political benefits in characterizing wide swathes of American citizens, particularly Republicans and conservatives, as politically suspect, potentially violent, and deserving of government surveillance. However, I will remind those assembled here today that our Intelligence Community exists solely to counteract foreign threats… History shows that major abuses occur when our intelligence capabilities are turned inward to spy on our own citizens—from the FBI spying on Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1950s and ‘60s to its surveillance of Republican party members in 2016. This is a red line that simply cannot be crossed—in fact, this committee was created in large part to ensure that line would not be crossed.”
Nunes expressed concern that the Biden Administration has directed the DNI to lead a report on domestic violent extremism. Attempts by the IC to blur the line between domestic and foreign threats will “provoke severe repercussions from every Republican on this committee, every Republican in Congress, and the American people.” Nunes said he hopes the IC will focus on other things besides “investigating conservatives and spying on Republican presidential campaigns.”
Politicians and their allies in the deep state know that investigating patriots over their participation at the capitol on January 6th will only further inflame the situation and potentially lead to more violence. The wise move would be to let it go and admit there was no insurrection. But won’t do that. They can’t afford to.
With the help of the media, politicians and the intel community have sold the fake insurrection story to the public. They’re committed to a narrative that paints them as victims and Trump supporters as criminals. They can’t just admit it never happened. If they did, then Trump and his supporters would no longer the bad guys. And if they aren’t the bad guys, who is?
Without the media and politicians pushing the insurrection narrative, election fraud would take the spotlight. And if election fraud were to take center stage, the rigged process that puts politicians in office would be exposed. They have no intention of letting that happen. Thus, the fake insurrection narrative will continue and I would expect it to be pushed harder as the election audit in Arizona approaches.
The Obama/Biden intel community set a trap on January 6th. They planted agitators in the crowd they knew would gather at the Capitol and had members of the media present to manufacture the narrative that Trump supporters tried to overthrow the government. This claiming paints conservatives as criminals and diverts public attention away from November’s stolen election. As they did with General Flynn, the “Just Us” Department will now try to make examples of patriots.
Continued targeting of groups like the Oath Keepers and Three Percenters seems like a recipe for disaster. Do officials at the DOJ think they can harass other law enforcement officers and members of the military without suffering reprisal? This seems to be what Nunes implied when he said continued harassment would “provoke severe repercussions from every Republican on this committee, every Republican in Congress, and the American people.”
The deep state’s playbook has been revealed, and with an assault on the rights of patriots in full swing, it looks like we’re in for a long, hot summer.
