The Federal Bureau of Investigation under James Comey was weaponized to assist in the destruction of the rule of law. He has placed American lives at risk because of his willingness to overlook the danger of radical Islam to our nation. His incompetence has been in full view.
Yet the picture that the media presents of an Upright Boy Scout in constant search of the truth is a laughable affront to all patriotic American citizens.
Comey ignored the counter-terrorism terms, concepts, and findings that is the bulwark against the terrorism in our country. Groups such as Muslims of America (MOA), also known as Jamaat al-Furqa, have been consistently ignored as terrorist training camps that have been created here in the United States.
Investigations have shown that MOA has been the cause of many murders, one disappearance and three firebombings. MOA also calls for jihad against those it considers hostile to Islam, including the federal government.
Along with the Muslim sympathizers in the Obama administration, all information and presentations concerning Muslims and Islamic Jihad were purged from the FBI training manuals by Robert Mueller, then head of the FBI, with the willing help of James Comey. This was done because Muslim groups like CAIR, ISNA, and the SPLC found the truthful information about them to be offensive.
These groups continue to this day working with the Deep State to foment anarchy, even going as far as to form an alliance with ANTIFA and other radical groups to create the chaos that they so desperately need to overcome the culture and way of life that has served our country so well for all these years.
Obama had appointed numerous Muslim Brotherhood acolytes to his administration, and Comey dutifully suppressed of all information of the group and any link that associated the Brotherhood with terrorism.
The FBI even went so far as to assist a shooter in Garland Texas. In 2015, two terrorists attempted to kill attendees at a “Draw Mohammed” contest in Garland Texas hosted by Pamela Geller. The FBI had an undercover agent working with these terrorists and knew what was to happen. At the location during the attack, he drove off after photographing the act of terrorism. Only a local heroic security guard, after being wounded, stopped the attack by killing the terrorists. The FBI did nothing, did not intervene, and did not warn the attendees of the event. The FBI never explained why the attack was allowed to happen, and it has never been explained that, if the attack had succeeded, and Pamela Geller and the attendees had been killed or seriously wounded, how the FBI would explain allowing it to happen.
The initial purging took place by none other than Robert Mueller under the instructions of Obama. It is very clear that Comey continued with the Mueller “Guiding Principles” so that friendly contact with terrorists would continue. And even though the DOJ banned the FBI from associating with CAIR, field offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, New Haven and Philadelphia continued to maintain friendly relations with Brotherhood front group.
The FBI has been extremely active in recruiting agents from the Muslim community – even going so far as to place recruitment ads in extremist publications. This led to the infiltration of the FBI by these same extremists, and as a consequence, a Los Angeles field agent tipping off a Muslim suspect under investigation.
It also led to terrorist acts that were swept under the rug. Ahmad Kan Rahami set off bombs in Manhattan even though his father had contacted the FBI two years earlier and told them he feared his son was a terrorist. Rahami had made trips to Pakistan and Qatar to receive training, but under James Comey, these trips did not matter and Ahmad Kan Rahami was cleared.
Omar Mateen murdered 49 people and injured 53 in the Pulse nightclub massacre, in 2016. Mateen was investigated by the FBI twice and was cleared in both because the FBI decided that Mateen was acting in reaction to the comments made by some coworkers about his Muslim faith.
Mateen had traveled to Saudi Arabia in 2011, and even this did not raise a red flag to Comey’s FBI. The agency further did not investigate the mosque Mateen attended, knowing it may have been a terror-supporting entity.
In short, James Comey was not the naive righteous Boy Scout that he purports to be. Rather, during his years at the FBI, Comey made it far easier for Islamic radicals to create the situation that our country finds itself in now. Islamic terrorists have infiltrated our country and Comey did nothing to put an end to this danger, but instead went along with the anarchy and chaos that grips our country.
