The FBI is discounting ISIS’ claim that the Las Vegas attack was jihad. But is the FBI really trustworthy?
The Islamic State says Steven Paddock converted six months ago. He filmed himself killing; jihadis do that and post it online. The attack was meticulously planned, as jihad attacks are, and Paddock likely had an accomplice. Paddock made numerous trips to the Middle East. Over 200 of his foreign financial transactions were flagged for possible “covert terrorism financing.”
Contrary to the ignorant, misinformed and delusional talking heads in the media, ISIS does not take responsibility for events that are not theirs. This has led even the New York Times’ terrorism expert to give credence to ISIS’ claims. The Philippines attack at Resorts World Casino was theirs. And there again, ISIS’ initial claims of responsibility were dismissed.
The absolute shitshow that is James Comey, Robert Muller, the entire DOJ refusal to go after the government officials who broke the law (and are currently breaking the law), the hounding of private citizens for political reasons.... I can go on. Geller does go on, and you should read the whole thing. But that this point the FBI is a political entity used to attack the Right. The CIA is worse.
Seriously, one massive reason Donald Trump got elected is because the average person does not trust the government. And why should they? Exactly what actions have the government taken to prove that they're trustworthy? I can name multiple actions to prove why they are UN-trustworthy.
