FBI Officials Singled Out Agents Who Were Former Military
"And again, I'll say it again because the show is fair. have I very strong opinions about things, especially police state type activities, because I a was cop and I did not abuse my authority. And I don't understand why other people, if you're going to go in that space, can't control your inclination to do that. I know what happens, you know, as corrupts. I get it, but that doesn't mean I understand it. I never did it. Why can't you just do the right thing? So the story about the FBI potentially targeting members of the military, which again, they strongly deny. And I'm going to, Jim, is there any way you can do this? Do they have a PR branch? I guess you can read the public relations or something. No, I'm serious. Can we reach out? I'd love to. I'd love to get a comment on this story. They'd like to come hear it. There's this woman, Deena Perkins and Jeffrey Veltri, who were accused by Carrie Pickett in the Washington Times, basically of targeting people who served in the Marine Corps or military branches. This is serious charges. If the woman and the guy would like to come on, I'm happy to hear him out. I don't want this story to be true, but this is devastating. I mean, just think about this for a second. If even a shred of this is true, and I'll get into the article in more depth in a second, imagine you're a young man or young woman. You sign up for the Marine Corps, one of the toughest boot camps in the world. The Marines who are at the forefront of any time the world is in conflict, the Marines go out there first. You got expeditionary units, you got reaction forces in the Marine Corps. They're there on the ground doing God's work to preserve freedom all over the world. These guys are badasses. To all the Marines in my audience, I tell you this with respect. Don't take this the wrong way. I envy you. I really do. I don't envy lot a of people. I envy you. My greatest regret in my lifetime is not going in the Marine Corps, because it's a different breed of human. It just is. When I was an instructor in our academy, in my last line of work, I always made the Marines the class presidents, because they were just, they were always on time, looked sharp, and it was their example that kept everyone else in line. I didn't care if you were the CEO of a company. We had a guy in one of the Secret Service classes, went to the San Francisco office. He was a medical doctor. He was a nice guy, but I didn't pick him for class president. We picked the Marines, because they were always five paragraph order types. Bang, bang, bang. You go into Corps, Marine and you find yourself in the FBI, and
Fresh update on "pickett" discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"There are a lot of Palestinians who hate Hamas, and they inform on Hamas to Israel, not because they love Israel. But we don't know anything about that. We've tried to find out it's all intelligence. Who knows what we could even find out if it were true, but we don't have any evidence. But the point, even if they were not actually, the point that Hamas is making is this is what will be done if you are an informant. So it was an attempt to terrorize the Palestinian population. When you are a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Hold that thought. I got to come back. Every problem it's never had, including in Palestinian society, it's solved with terrorism. One more break and I'm going to come back and ask Habib during the break, is there an ad now or anywhere in Palestine? Because that is to me, I got to ask him about war is not map as well. I'll get two more questions in with Habib and I'll try and trap him into coming back again and again and again. But he's doing he's doing Israel's best work. Dr. Warren and Habib Reddy Gur are doing Israel's best work in the American media. And it's important because it's slipping here. It's slipping almost every day I can see it slip. Don't go anywhere America. I'll be right back. Habib Reddy Gur. Well, all of it will be broadcast. So stay tuned. I'm back with Habib Reddy Gur. Habib, yesterday in the Dan Senor podcast called me back. You noted that international law benefits the powerful. That's absolutely true. I took it. I teach it. I know exactly what it does. You're absolutely correct about that. It does. And so I reject all the proportionality arguments by people who don't know what they're saying or the context. But I do wonder whether or not there's someone who might not return Palestine and add an hour to the nations that benefit from international law, because if they ever did, there would be arguments that could be made about how much of the West Bank they should receive in the final allotment of the two state solution if there is a two state solution. Is there an add an hour? Is there anyone like that? A Yoshida? Anybody that you can identify or does identifying them endanger them? No, there have been. There have been. There was a gentleman in Salem Fayed, World Bank economist, a professor at University of Texas, who became prime minister of the Palestinian Authority briefly. America supported him. He began to root out corruption. He began to create a serious and responsible budget, and he began to build out the institutions of statehood. And he was very quickly pushed out of Palestinian politics by the forces that be, essentially because he was trying to weaken the regime and establish something more liberal and more open in the West Bank. It's important to remember that while Hamas is this horrific, oppressive regime, Mahmoud Abbas is a slightly less horrific, slightly less oppressive, but nevertheless, pretty terrible, oppressive regime. And so Salem Fayed was someone who, when he ran in an election, I believe he won something like 3% of the vote. Voting among the Palestinians is something that doesn't happen often. It follows tribal lines and plan lines and religious loyalty lines. And so it's not really a healthy democratic world in that sense that we can really measure by our standards, both Israeli or American standards. So there are such people. There are activists, phenomenal activists. I won't name them because if I name them, it'll only hurt their PR. But there are activists on the ground working on building out civil society. I once spoke with a Palestinian activist, no fan of Israel, spent some time in an Israeli jail, who said to me, I can't come to peace talks with you. I can't even sit at the table because when we sign something, I don't have the state institutions to implement it and ensure it and control it. I have to build out my society. I'll meet you at that table in 20 years and I'll be stronger and you'll be sorry because he'll negotiate, squeeze more out of me. That was how he put it, me being Israel, not me, Haviv. And he goes around the West Bank, establishing literally women's knitting circles, literally just walking around the West Bank, establishing civil society because you can't trust the West Bank leadership of the Palestinian authority. Of course, you can't trust Hamas. And so what he is doing is actually going around trying to establish a social life, a civil society in Palestine that can be built out. There are such people. I have one last question. And I have five minutes for you to answer it in. So I want to give you the time. You said yesterday, Dan, war is not math and you cited Pickett's Charge. And I just seen Napoleon. I thought about water. I thought about every big battle ever. What did you mean? And what do you want? And especially an American audience understand when they look at Gaza, that war is not math.
A highlight from "Wait A Minute,Jada Pinkett Smith Says Her & Will Have Been Separated Since 2016!!"
"Welcome to another edition of Convo Over Cigars. I'm your host Derek Andre Flemming. Let's talk about a very interesting woman and despite the fact that people have very mixed opinions about Jada Pickett -Smith, I think a lot of people have lost a lot of respect for the woman. her I think recent admission to People magazine, she came out and said to people that she is writing a book. It's going to be released soon. It's called Worthy. And she talks about her trials and tribulations and the fact that she was depressed. I think she said at the age of 40 she contemplated suicide. She contemplated taking her own life. She's always battled depression. She was on prescription medications for depression, but she also says that her children were also on a certain drug for depression and things like that. I just think the thing with Jada Pinkett -Smith, if I'm being honest, and I always tell people to live their truth. I applaud her for opening up about her trials and tribulations, living in the limelight, being a part of Hollywood's it couple. Because for years, her and Will Smith seemed to be the it couple in Hollywood. He was the multi -million dollar man. She was the supportive spouse who also had a very successful run with her podcast Red Table Talk. And she always seemed like a woman who knew who she was. And nobody's perfect. We know that nobody is perfect. But I think the thing about Jada is she opened up a can of worms that I'm not sure she wanted to go that far. I think she was a little bit too open about her marriage with Will Smith because it's one thing to say, you know, we've had our problems. We, you know, we've just like any other couple, we've been through our share of, you know, ups and downs. But she was too specific about some of the things that they went through, some of the things that they did in the bedroom. She obviously admitted that she had a quote unquote entanglement with artist August Alsina, who is a very good friend of her son, Jaydens. So I think when you start opening up your bedroom and your household to America, I think you're going down the wrong path. And I think so many women have said, I'm just tired of them. I'm tired of Will. I'm tired of Jada. The infamous Oscar slap that was orchestrated back in, I think it was 2022 when Will Smith strutted up there on that Oscar stage and smacked Chris Rock when he basically teased his wife, Jada, about having alopecia, which is baldness. I think America is just tired of them as a couple where they will once be loved and admired and respected. I think many people are just tired. And now that Jada is writing this book, Worthy, and she recently came out and told people that her and Will Smith have been separated since 2016. I think it was a shocker, but I think at this point, people are just like enough. We just don't really care anymore about your personal life, about the fact that you and Will are separated. They are thinking she's just doing anything to get some attention, to sell this book so that it becomes a bestseller. If you and Will have been separated since 2016, that would mean that the infamous Oscar slap didn't make any sense. It would mean that Will went up there and slapped Chris Rock for no reason because you guys technically had already been separated for six years when he did that. So it doesn't make any sense. And then I'm also reading that she admitted that Chris Rock has asked her out on a date amid the divorce rumors and the fact that her and Will are not in the same house. She also said that comedian Chris Rock asked her out that at one time he asked her out. So my thing is with Jada, why are you so open about your private life? Why can't you save something for your marriage? You know, inside, you know, inside your household. Why have to why do you have to be so vocal about that? I am going to read the book. I'm going to read the book Worthy because I think it's going to be an interesting read simply because of the fact that I think so many people are interested in what she has to say. I definitely want to hear Jada's side of her story and anybody that talks openly about their battle with drugs or drug addiction or depression or any of those things that plague so many people. I think her book is worth reading. So you guys have been locked into another edition of Convo Over Cigars. I'm your host, Derrick Andre Flemming. Everybody have a fantastic Thursday. Take care, guys.
Fresh update on "pickett" discussed on Bloomberg Surveillance
"Best on record. Cyber Monday expected to be the biggest Monday. Cyber Monday on record. TK, where is that slow down? The combination of the two I think is germane and I was told JFK was sport as well. I'm sure around the nation you're all seeing on it radio and television as well. You're right John, every time you bring these up you go okay what's the problem here and we're going to get economic data today that may underscore that because there's a lot of housing gloom out there and we're going find to really out if there's price elasticity with yields coming down. I'm not so sure there is. Jobless claims just around the corner as well bear in mind jobless claims last week Lisa 209 209 000 on jobless claims so claims are low unemployment's still low payroll's growth still looks decent city looking for 200k plus next in Friday the payrolls report at least looking at the numbers coming out of Black Friday and Cyber Monday pretty and the spending gone into the holiday season. Consumers are doing really well. How do you compare that to a Walmart CEO coming out and saying that here's they're seeing a dramatic pullback in consumers over the past three months. How do you pair that with what we heard from Best Buy. We heard from Target. We heard from a lot of the retailers. It doesn't really work unless there are different trends in different sectors which is the reason why it has been so hard to get this economic cycle right. We did you know what surveillance does. We talked to Dana Telsey and Oliver Chen back to back. Those are two hugely competent. You should see Dana Telsey in a TJ Maxx. She gets into aisle four. People just clear up. I saw Dana once at aisle four of TJ Maxx. People clear out. She's so intimidating. I know you're it making up. Let me give you a number you can get your hands around. This from Reid Pickett here at Bloomberg. It now requires $119 to .27 buy the same goods and services a family could afford with $100 the before pandemic. Tom, if I can pick only one number that matters right now to how the consumer feels about what's happening in America. That's it. That number right there. Economist of the Year. Lyle Brainard silent at the White House. She was doing better as vice chairman. We heard more from her and she gives credit to the idea of cumulative. It's not year over year. I've said this eight times. It's not month over month. It's this cumulative study that pickets picket study is great here. The latest number I saw is groceries from the beginning of the pandemic up 17 18 % of 25 % of 2020. Wow, that's the number that matters Tom. You know what I'm paying for a fancy overpriced capital? But don't you think we need to talk about how we talk about inflation in this country on programs like this when we sit here saying month over month. It's this core this inflation is slowing and then you've got a whole group of people away from Wall Street that are just sitting there like what on earth are you talking about? Well we've always talked to both audiences but to your point John our answer is we have to have the responsibility to do both. We've got to play the eco go game you know as you say claims coming out extremely important. adjustment The second quarter GDP third quarter GDP second look I should say 5 % an uptick is the model right now and that statistic but then we got to look at the real world as well. Real wage growth is good but is that real world? I mean a lot of economists would say absolutely yes but I don't think Tom people should be telling people how they should feel. I see so much of that Brahmo when people stand down account and say we should feel better about this economy. This is how you should feel about things and then you go through numbers like that you look at the cumulative inflation over the last three years. Let's not talk down to people about how they should feel about this US economy. Things are a lot more expensive and what people feel is that they can't spend they can't buy as much with their money and that is a very real feeling. The key question is what is the remedy? Is it time or things to stabilize period of time given the fact that people have earned more or is it a more material deflation which typically is negative although if it's a goods deflation which we are seeing on the margins? Could that give a bit of a lift? Extremely well said and the answer is the x -axis. You work it out time. over What I suggest John is we've had a massive pandemic stimulus that was the choice of America. Did that stimulus was it equally applied across 300 million people? The answer is no. The stimulus benefit went to the haves and the have -nots across broad middle class got crushed. Let's turn to the scores. Your equity market right now Tuesday morning pulling back by a tenth of 1 % on the S &P 500 just a touch lighter over the last 24 hours yesterday and this morning yields a little bit higher by a couple of basis points Lisa up to to 440 .40 on a US 10 year.

A highlight from The Power of Hispanic Serving Institutions
"Hello, and welcome to the College Admissions Decoded podcast, an occasional series in the National Association for College Admission Counseling, or NACAC. I'm your host, Eddie Pickett. I'm a longtime NACAC member and a member of the NACAC board of directors. In my day job, I'm a senior associate dean of admissions and director of recruitment at Pomona College in Claremont, California. NACAC is an association of more than 25 ,000 professionals at high schools, colleges, universities, and nonprofit organizations, as well as independent counselors who support and advise students and families through the college admissions process. Our topic today is Hispanic Serving Institutions, also known as HSIs. Historically, HSIs are colleges and universities with Hispanic undergraduate enrollment of at least 25%. In 1992, Congress formally recognized HSIs and created federal appropriations to support these institutions. Today there are over 500 HSIs in the United States. HSIs play a vital role in the communities they serve, offering culturally relevant programs, a sense of belonging, and services that help students succeed. For this episode, we're joined by Belinda Sandoval -Sasweta, associate vice president of at admissions University of Redlands in California. Welcome Belinda. Thanks Eddie. Happy to be here. We're also joined by Argenis Rodriguez, director of a support program for students. Welcome Argenis. Happy to be here. Thank you both for joining us today on the podcast, particularly after this summer and the Supreme Court decision that came down. So let's just get started with the first question. Belinda, can you tell us a little bit about your background and the work with HSIs that you've done? My pronouns are she, hers, and Aya. I am a Mexican -American. I identify as a Chicana. And so I serve on the advisory council, which is made up of faculty, staff, and students. And we work together as a council to write our first grant for Hispanic -serving institutions, which we were proud recipients of this summer. And Argenis, same question. Can you tell us a little bit about your background and your work that you've done with HSIs? So I'm currently the director of a program that's aimed to support the specific needs of students as they are pursuing an undergraduate degree. And the program balances academic advising and personal support, along with career exploration, leadership development, and community engagement. And so what do Hispanic -serving institutions guarantee to offer students that other colleges and universities might not? Hispanic -serving institutions are intentional in supporting this population of students, like offering a sense of community and relatability. And Hispanic -serving institutions also offer a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. And they will continue to play that critical role in providing Hispanic students with the education they need in order to enter their career fields. Very similar to Argenis, you know, I think that institutions are, they show their commitment to serving students. And I was actually reading Gina Garcia's book on Hispanic institutions in practice. And part of that really does a call, really has a call for us to not just be an institution that enrolls students, but be an institution that serves Hispanic students or Latinx or Latinos. So I think a Hispanic -serving institution is thinking about how to not just enroll them, but really truly serve them and serve them well while they are students. I like that idea of serving but also being intentional. So Argenis, can you start this next one? Just how do institutions approach students' success for HSIs? So the way that HSIs approach students' success is by utilizing data to determine what programming can provide support to Hispanic students in close equity gaps. So the data is utilized specifically to track multiple factors, such as first -year progress, graduation rates, and cohort program involvement. Then to Belinda, sitting on the admissions side, are there other unique factors that colleges and universities are tracking, such as first -gen or anything else with this HSI population? We certainly track first -gen. We also do a lot of programming at the recruitment level around language. So for example, we might do sessions in Spanish, we give tours in Spanish, just to give families an opportunity to really feel like they belong on a college campus. And I think that's a big part of that recruitment phase of being an HSI, is really thinking about how to incorporate families into this process. I would also say, you know, that student success looks at both how the student performs while they are a student, but it also is about how a student does once they transition out of the college community, right, and that professional sense of, or transitioning into the professional workspace. And so we're still thinking about ways to do that. With our new HSI grant, we were able to infuse funds into existing programs that we know are doing very well to retain both Latino students, but really all students. Can you tell us a few of those programs that you're specifically referencing? Sure. The programs that I'm referencing are things like our First -Year Journey, which are a couple of days of an outdoor experience that students do very well in transitioning to the university. And so we really want and encourage our Hispanic students, our first generation college students to participate in things like that, as well as our summer bridge program, and our mentor program, which is called STEP. Sounds like you're doing some great work over there, University of Redlands. Kudos to you all. Thanks, Eddie. And what I've noticed also with HSI, similar to HBCUs, is there's an immense version of pride in their schools, and both graduates, staff, and students affiliated with these schools. So Argenis, coming to you, can you talk about how that pride is nurtured on campus, and why so many students find the HSI experience attractive? Community colleges are an essential building block in the education journey of many Hispanic students. HSIs continue to be attractive because they foster community. Our commitment to Hispanic students and the status as an HSI is reflected in the college's participation in the Excelencia in Education National Initiative. You know, the CO is a national certification for institutions intentionally serving Latino students through data, practice, and leadership. So you pointed out community colleges being a strong support system. Can we just talk about how to get students comfortable at the community college and then also transitioning them from the two -year into the four -year and the importance of that too? So an example of this is by one of our programs that we have on campus called Connexiones and Connexions, which is a program designed for Latinx students. And the purpose is to increase engagement and clarify their academic and career interests. And another example, I guess if we're talking about how we are assisting transitioning them out, it's through a program that we also have on campus, which is Grow with Google. And that's a career readiness program that is centered on helping students, providing them with the preparation needed to enter the workforce through digital skills and career workshops. Thank you for that. It definitely always thinking about what are the opportunities presented by different colleges. And we hear about certain schools, not about all. And so as we think about the vastness of higher ed, that's also really important. And so Belinda, similar question coming to you, but just how does the University of Redlands build pride on your campus? I think there's a lot of different ways that we build pride, certainly with the traditions that are just part of the institution and making sure that all students feel like they are part of who, you know, of the institution and the fabric of the institution and making them like feel this isn't just, you know, an age old tradition that certain students happen to connect to, but that we try to infuse that into everything that we do. But I think, you know, at the end of the day, it's really about validating who a student is. And I think that is a real big part of coming into the institution. I mean, a lot of what I talk about with families when I do Spanish programming, for example, is that, you know, this is their community, too. And for a lot of our students that are first gen that are part of that identifies Latino or that are part of the Hispanic community, they've never been or have never set foot on a campus before. It's really talking about this is your space, too, really is powerful for them. And we get questions like, can I bring salsa to my daughter, you know, during on the weekends? Or can I, you know, go to the soccer game or can I do those kinds of things that if you've gone to college feels so like, of course you can do that. But if you are a first gen family who's never been to a college in the U .S. before, those are, you know, important questions to ask because they just don't know. And so I think that validation of who a student is and who, you know, their family is and the make of the dynamic of that family and where they come from really is important. It goes a long way. If you know me, I'm a numbers person. I love some good numbers. I want to give a shout out to University of Redlands as well. They're about 50 percent first gen students. You want to talk about creating opportunities. That's creating an opportunity. You know, at Pomona, we're about 20 percent and we're really excited about that for a private school being at nearly 50 percent. Kudos to you. So thank you for doing that great work and creating those opportunities for everyone. So staying in that numbers scene, I'm going to throw out this other stat that I saw was pretty interesting. So according to Excelencia in Education, HSIs in the U .S. enroll 66 percent of Latino students. For reference, there are 500 of them. There are about 4000 colleges, so 66 percent of students and about an eighth of the schools. So more power to HSIs to start. But with the student population increasing in the U .S. faster than any other population in terms of higher education enrollment, what does that mean for the future of HSIs? Well, I think that it means good things for all of us that are currently identified as a HSI. You know, we are committed to the work. We want to make sure that we are creating spaces that validate our students. I would also say, you know, that it really does speak also to all institutions. And I think it's a call for all institutions to really think about, you know, you have this fast growing minority group. And so that so I think the HSIs are in a unique position and that we have been thinking about how we are serving our Hispanic and Latino students. But I do think that all institutions really need to be thinking about that, about how they are serving this fast growing group, demographic group. I mean, it's a wonderful opportunity, right, because HSIs are now at the forefront of educating and preparing Hispanic students, you know, for the future. And that it seems like a very colorful future from the data that we're seeing as well coming down the pipeline. Students are starting to make their choices. Many prospective HSI students have a variety of options when selecting a college, including PWIs or predominantly white institutions, the term that we've used historically by the Department of Education. What should students think about when considering whether to attend an HSI or a PWI? And what have you heard from students on this question? And we'll go to our hand is first. So students who have expressed interest on PWIs, from my perspective, like they often worry about the cost of attendance and HSI community colleges offer Hispanic students a quality, affordable education that can prepare them to continue their education at a PWI if that's what the student is wanting to go for afterwards. Belinda. What I would say is, you know, every institution opens the door. And so I think whether a student selects a PWI or an HSI, I think it really is about whether a student is going to take advantage of the resources that are available. And a student that is thinking about an HSI oftentimes really has a good sense of who they are and what it is that they're looking to do and what kind of community they're going to be able to, you know, be, let's say, successful in. A student attending a PWI and I was one of them, I was a student that came from the Inland Empire and in California and went straight to PWI and I loved my experience there. It challenged me to think about who I was and my identity in a different way and how I could, you know, challenge the system a little bit to include me into it. But I would say that it made me that much stronger when I moved into the professional workforce. So I wouldn't say that one is better than the other. I would just say that when you're looking at institutions, the HSI's are going to provide a different environment than a PWI. And there are some very basic things. Like I give examples of, you know, you go from things like selling Mexican candy in the inspired out music of the commons and the quad area to the pedagogy and that is is being taught in the classroom to the faculty that are being hired. There's an intentionality there in a way that is not present in other places. Yeah, thank you. I always just tell students, like, know what you're getting yourself into. You know, as you're making your choices, you don't have to have a list of all PWIs or all HSIs. You can have a mix of them. As you get your decisions back, that's when you really have to make those choices. But understand the situation you're walking yourself into and also what do you want out of college? Because what you want isn't always the same as your peer or somebody who looks like you. So understand what you are wanting and what I and why I'm here at this school. So that's what I tell students. And now the question that we've all been waiting for, probably, and particularly thinking about this Supreme Court case, the SFFA case that just came out. And so considering the recent decision on race conscious admissions in the Supreme Court, some may question the need to focus on and provide federal funding to HSIs and other institutions that serve specific populations. What would you say to those who question the value of supporting HSIs? The recent decisions are not a deterrent. Like, HSIs understand that race does impact the student's access to higher education. You know, this can also affect persistence, retention, graduation and career outcomes. But that HSIs are also committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. And I would add that we talked about this fact earlier, right, that with that Latinos, they're the fastest growing demographic group in the United States. And I think a big part of what we are here to talk about is how do we make sure that our institutions are serving our students well? And so really thinking about what the value is of supporting HSIs, I think the value is that we are educating the future of the country. I want to be very clear to the students and counselors listening to this podcast that the discussion topic that you can write about in your essays, you can still write about whatever you want because I've been asked, well, you know, I'm Latino, can I write about my application? Yes, you can write about whatever you want. What the Supreme Court has done is it's limited our ability to evaluate race as a status alone. And so we can evaluate the discrimination faced. We can evaluate the motivation because of and the characters you've learned because of your race. But we can't just use race alone. So that's what the Supreme Court has done. It has not actually limited your ability to speak about race in your application whatsoever. So I want to be clear about that. I'm afraid that's all the time we have today.

Julie Kelly: We Need More Whistleblowers From the FBI
"A Kerry Pickett as a piece out at the Washington times Again this is just stuff from this week about the FBI Clearly an organization that's failed in its mission at this point Apparently some FBI whistleblowers and thanked the lord and I'm not using his name in vain that we're starting to see whistleblowers trickle out I wish we had more but a whistleblower or a couple of them told the Washington times that apparently ray and the DoJ have some headquarters based white supremacy type quota They're calling it like what was the line about it before Some kind of a oh internal metric for white supremacists and the whistleblowers are saying that they're being pushed to recategorize people as white supremacists I mean can you think of a more destructive thing to do to law enforcement than to set up a perverse incentive that we're going to measure your performance based on how many white supremacists you can go and find This is crazy It is crazy and it's all to bolster Christopher ray's phony narrative that he launched in 2019 that white supremacist militia men et cetera opposed a grave threat to the country This was his idea This was also again the motivation to put together the Whitmer fed mapping hoax And so now you have Joe Biden is going to host the summit I think it's today talking about white supremacy and what a danger it is and yet you have these people inside the FBI who unfortunately yes we have whistleblowers but for the most part these agents and officials are going along with this Yeah A lot more whistleblowers We need a lot more people in there speaking out because if it doesn't come from within the FBI we know the GOP doesn't have the guts to reform it or dismantle it It has to be come from inside that agency
