The Jongleur

"When clowns swarm, go for the juggler." ~ Mac Siccar

The Democrats are weaponizing agencies of your federal government to round up and dispose of citizens with whom they disagree. Let's review.

The FBI published a tweet on Sunday telling Americans to report their own family members and peers for “suspicious behaviors.” The FBI’s tweet read: "Family members and peers are often best positioned to witness signs of mobilization to violence. Help prevent homegrown violent extremism. Visit https://go.usa.gov/x6mjf to learn how to spot suspicious behaviors and report them to the #FBI. #NatSec"

The Postal Service is running a 'covert operations program' that monitors Americans' social media posts. The law enforcement arm of the U.S. Postal Service has been quietly running a program that tracks and collects Americans’ social media posts, including those about planned protests, according to a document obtained by Yahoo News.
The details of the surveillance effort, known as iCOP, or Internet Covert Operations Program, have not previously been made public. The work involves having analysts trawl through social media sites to look for what the document describes as “inflammatory” postings and then sharing that information across government agencies.

Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are also planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages. The goal is to ensure that people who may have difficulty getting a vaccination because of issues like transportation see those barriers lessened or removed entirely. The implication is now that AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, T-Mobile etc. etc. will deploy monitors and fact-checkers to control what you are allowed to say in text messages to your friends and family.

Bank of America handed over customer data to FBI following Capitol riot.  Bank of America, the second-largest bank in the country with more than 60 million customers, is actively but secretly engaged in the hunt for extremists in cooperation with the government. Bank of America is, without the knowledge or the consent of its customers, sharing private information with federal law enforcement agencies. Bank of America effectively is acting as an intelligence agency, but they're not telling you about it. Any purchases of anything in Washington, D.C.; any overnight stay anywhere in an area spanning three jurisdictions and hundreds of miles; any purchase not just of legal firearms, but anything bought from a "weapons-related merchant," T-shirts included; and any airline-related purchases -- not just flights to Washington, but flights to anywhere, from Omaha to Thailand. That is an absurdly wide net. The FBI hauls you in for questioning in a terror investigation, not because you've done anything suspicious, but because you bought plane tickets and visited your country's capital. 

In Congressional testimony, the counsel for a group called the National Consumer Law Center, Chi Chi Wu, a product of Harvard and Johns Hopkins, gave away the game on how her law-fare grifting group and people like them want to change FICO credit scores. The Wall Street Journal reported in May that banks are planning to “issue credit cards to people with no credit scores” as part of a government program. Supporters of the government takeover of FICO scores also want student loans, medical bills, pandemic-related expenses, and other items to be exempted from credit scoring. Wu wants student loans forgiven entirely. Of course, the government runs that program, too, so that should work out well.

Joe Biden wants to know what's in your bank account, and he'd like to keep watching. Buried deep within Biden's much-touted tax hikes for "infrastructure" American Families Act unveiled last April 28 is a sneaky Democrat plot called the American Families Tax Compliance Agenda.  That will force the IRS to hire 87,000 new IRS agents, all of them armed with vast, new, and expanded surveillance powers. Those powers include the "right" to continuously spy on Americans' checking accounts through forced reporting requirements from banks on all cash flows.  They will also spy on Americans' PayPal and Venmo accounts in the name of knowing whether they are reporting their petty side income.  It's definitely a war on the little guy. 

It's almost incomprehensible that Senate Republicans are about to help pass an infrastructure package that unleashes the IRS to collect more revenue through aggressive policing of small businesses. If you wanted to find the group getting the rawest deal in 2021 America, you might start with small-business owners. Many are finding themselves working 60- or 80-hour weeks just to scrape by. During the height of COVID-19, these companies were especially beaten down. Between Jan. 1, 2020, and Dec. 31, 2020, about 30% of U.S. small businesses closed, while total small-business revenue decreased by 31%, according to Economic Tracker. During the same period, the stock market boomed, and multinational corporations continued to thrive. The effects of this economic destruction are apparent in communities all over the country. Boxed-up storefronts on main streets across America are the norm.

HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra Decrees “it is absolutely the government’s business” to Know Who Has and Has Not Been Vaccinated.  The same political voices who said the Census Bureau was not allowed to ask about the citizenship status of U.S. residents are now saying HHS has the right to know if you have been vaccinated or not.   This is not hypocrisy, this is the ideological mindset of totalitarian elites who will tell you what is, and is not, permitted behavior. Having previously announced the government will go door-to-door asking about vaccination compliance, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra declared Thursday that “it is absolutely the government’s business” to know people’s vaccination status, arguing the federal government has a vested interest in keeping Americans safe.

U.S. Capitol Police announces field offices across U.S. to probe threats to Congress members. The agency said it is expanding operations beyond Washington, D.C., to include the opening of regional field offices in California, Florida and elsewhere in the country to investigate threats to members of Congress. "The unleashing of a newly empowered law enforcement and "intelligence" agency now spreading to other states, commanded by Congress, has been enabled by one tactic: the weaponization and exaggeration of the events of January 6 and the supposed grave domestic threat it reflects" Glenn Greenwald writes. "Before Biden was even inaugurated, he made clear he intended to launch a new War on Terror -- this one domestic -- in the name of fighting "domestic extremism." This radically expanded Capitol Police force is the latest step in that war."

Jan. 6 Detainees Confined 23 hrs/day; Risking All for American Dream. Nearly 500 people have been charged in cases* related to the breach of the Capitol on January 6, with more charges expected. Some of dozens detained in federal prison awaiting trail, say they are being subject to Third World treatment, including solitary confinement, lack of required medical care, and restricted access to defense counsel.

FBI Makes Shock Demand, Orders News Site to Hand Over Data of Everyone Who Read This One Article. The FBI is asking USA Today to disclose data about the readers of a Feb. 2 story about a gunfight between a man suspected of having child porn and two FBI agents in which two agents were killed.

DHS to scan social media posts looking for “domestic terrorists” after Capitol breach. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plans to launch a warning system to detect “domestic terrorism” threats by gathering and analyzing intelligence on public social media posts and making predictions on future actions.

As the New York Post puts it, "Team Biden keeps hyping a basically phony ‘domestic violent extremism’ threat:"
 
  • DHS “plans to ramp up social media tracking as part of an enhanced focus on domestic violent extremism,” for which the department has opened a new office in its intelligence branch.
  • Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines published a “threat assessment” focusing on “white extremism.”
  • DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has ordered an internal review to address “threats” within the department’s ranks.
  • Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin ordered a 60-day stand down in February to review the ranks of the military for this extremism.
  • Attorney General Merrick Garland marked the 26th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing by saying, “The Department of Justice is pouring its resources into stopping domestic violent extremists before they can attack.”
This is a radical left government going after conservatives. This is especially alarming if you know how miuch 58 non-military federal agencies spent on guns and ammo.
