Sipsey Street Exclusive: "The greater fear within the beast." The FBI looks "invincible, but
Sipsey Street Irregulars ^ | 12/11/11 | Dutchman 6

We see the beast without and

We fear the greater beast within.

But those who win, fear the least, and

Sense the greater fear within the beast.

-- Mike Vanderboegh, Dangerous Doggerel, 1997.

As a self-made military historian without much of a portfolio, I still know that you cannot understand a battle without walking the ground of the battlefield. To see the ground from the perspective of the combatants tells you almost everything you need to know to understand why they did what they did. This past week I walked the battlefield of the Gunwalker Scandal. I talked to the combatants of both sides. And now I understand both the shape of the battle to come and how it may be won.

Fascinating. It explains much. There can’t be too many people in the Senate or House these days with clean hands, at least not among those who have been there for more than a year or two.

I wonder what grounds there are to think that the FBI might cave on this one? There are still a lot of clintonoids at the top levels, and although Sessions was appointed by Bush, he has always struck me as being on the other side.

Well, we shall see. There are certainly some unnamed Democrat insiders who think that Holder doesn’t have much chance of avoiding an ouster, if not worse. And neither Obama nor hillary has clean hands.

Went to the link, read the article, and he missed the target.

Early in the 1980s, Iran-Contra involved smuggling drugs into the US through Mena, Arkansas. The pilots of those planes were blamed for the illegal trafficking, but the drugs were sent in different directions, including Illinois and Texas.

The reason we still have an open border is because the politically powerful in various state and federal offices, and the politically connected, are making money. Lots of money.

Does the FBI know all about it? Maybe they know just enough to know that talking about it will eliminate them and theirs.

Sorry Nachum, but in this case I think the guys at Sipsey Street missed their target.

Don't think the smuggling actually went through Mena. (been there many times) It did happen in AR. I have never been convinced it happened from the top.

Ollie? (no way he was in on it) Felix Rodriquez? (doubt it) Barry Seal? (probably, he was killed in LA before he could talk about it) Other players? sure.

The Clinton Chronicles, by Patrick Matrisciana, has details about covert operations at the airport at Mena, Arkansas. VP Bush had to get Gov. Clinton’s permission to fly into and out of that small airport. Drugs were distributed from there, with Clinton getting a cut.

A lot of people involved in that operation, people in the know, were later murdered.

Note: at this moment there are five copies of The Clinton Chronicles for sale on Ebay. (None of them are mine.)

Comment from Retired FBI Agent
Posted by Ann Barnhardt - December 1, AD 2011 8:45 PM MST
http://www.barnhardt.biz/

This caught my eye in the inbox tonight:

Ann,
I just listened to your interview on financial sense. I am a retired FBI White Collar Crime Supervisor who supervised a Securities Fraud Desk, in the {city name redacted} Division, prior to retiring in {year redacted}. Your analysis of the CME, the Obama Administration, and the sad state of our republic is right on the money. In addition, your 8(a) minority, affirmative action hire comment could not be more true. The effectiveness of federal law enforcement has been jeopardized by the politically correct hiring practices ongoing since George Herbert Walker Bush was elected President in 1988. My squad was responsible for the investigation of complex, white collar crime investigations (primarily securities fraud and corporate fraud). My career in the FBI spanned 24 years in five field divisions including New York, and FBI Headquarters. When I began my career, hires and promotion were merit based. The quality of agents working complex white collar crime investigations was high, most having worked for big eight accounting firms or brokerage houses prior to hire by the FBI. By the time I retired, minority and female agents were being assigned to my squad with no pertinent qualifications, and no apparent talent, dedication, work ethic or experience. As a result, senior agents had to double up on complex investigations, and my minimum threshold for initiating investigation was dramatically increased to assure the greatest offenders were addressed adequately. Needless to say, cases that should have been addressed were no longer addressed due to the lack of qualified agents capable of successfully investigating and taking through trial, complex white collar crime cases. After 9.11 the FBI all but abandoned complex criminal investigations, and transformed itself from the premier law enforcement agency in the world to a fourth rate domestic spy agency more concerned with violating citizens constitutional rights in the name of “protecting the general public from terrorism” than in completing its primary mission, enforcing Title 18 of the US Criminal Code.

***************

I’m SO GLAD he mentioned women as a subset of affirmative action hiring. I always forget to mention that. I think most people associate “affirmative action” with black and Hispanic hires - but a HUGE component of affirmative action is the hiring and elevating of monumentally unqualified WOMEN, and the placing of unqualified, untalented women in positions of corporate governance. Any time you are around a company that is bragging about how many female executives they have, RUN. Run for the hills as hard and as fast as you can, because most of those broads shouldn’t be doing anything more complex than ANSWERING THE PHONE.

The men of civilized societies are not the Taliban. If a woman has brains and chops, she will do better than fine. Feminism and affirmative action are a SCOURGE on civilization. Perform and excel or sit your candy@$$ down and stay out of the way of those who can perform and excel.

So, gman992, was it Sessions or Freah or the men they worked for, who have screwed things up? If the FBI could do its job free from politics I suspect the agents and general population would prefer it so.

Article; then read comments 2 through 11.

I agree with SatinDoll's Affirmative Action comment at # 11.

Thanks Cicero.

I was an affirmative action hire at one job. My boss told me so at my first review where I was taken off probation and given a raise and a promotion as a result of my performance.

Hard work, a good attitude, and a couple of brain cells knocking around in your noggin will do that every time.

None of the other AA employees fared so well, but the company was stuck with them until they quit. I got a good job because of AA, but I'm still opposed to its practice, for it is, for the most part, detrimental to the health of industry.

“....Perform and excel or sit your candy@$$ down and stay out of the way of those who can perform and excel...”

You have absolutely, completely, and totally nailed the ultimate end-all, be-all quote of all time.

A wonderful variation of “Either Lead, Follow, or get the hell out of the way”.

Outstanding post!
