I Love Lucy was the all time greatest situation comedy in the history of television, and set the pattern for all sitcoms that followed. Lucille Ball and her real life husband Desi Arnaz played husband and wife on the show, and Lucy was always scheming something or other, which when caught created one of the great lines in the history show business: Lucy, You Got Some Splainin To Do, and while that was another one of those lines, like, "Play it again Sam", that was a misquote, it nonetheless became iconic.
Well.......FBI, You Got Some Splainin To Do!
On August 28 I reported in my article, It's Time We Disarm the FBI, saying:
Jim Hoft reported that on There are still no answers from the FBI on why they found it necessary to raid the home of a disabled US veteran and shoot him dead on the morning of August 16th. Theodore Deschler was shot and killed when FBI agents raided his home near Henderson, Tennessee. Now Deschler’s family are looking for answers. There is still no news from the government on why they had to break out the windows, toss smoke bombs into the home, and then shoot Deschler who was unarmed at the time........
When the lady asked why they were doing this she was told it wasn't any of her business. The FBI conducts a military style raid on their home and it isn't any of her business why? Really? And why is that? Because the FBI is out of control, and far more dangerous than we knew, and more dangerous than the people they're attacking. They've even been involved in interfering with elections, and it's clear they don't intend to stop.
Yesterday, August 30, 2023 this follow up piece appeared, Family of Disabled Veteran Killed by FBI Demands Answers was published with the author noting:
There was a time not too long ago when I would naively dismiss stories like the one below as nothing much to see. Today, many of us find ourselves questioning every action from the Department of Justice in general and the FBI in particular. Instead of trusting that national law enforcement will only use force when absolutely justified, it seems more likely that they engaged in unnecessary or even criminal actions that led to the death of an unarmed man.
According to the author:
Earlier this year, Deschler had been arrested as a suspect in a gas station stabbing in a nearby town, according to the Selmer Police Department. However, details of the attack and any charges resulting from it remain unclear.
Okay, maybe that happened and maybe it didn't, but either way, why would the FBI be involved in an alleged local criminal matter, and while the FBI says this is all under review, the author has this to say about this "review".
But this isn’t about who to believe between the FBI and the family. It’s about the lack of information being put forth by the FBI. If they believe they were justified in killing Teddy Deschler, they needed to come out with information backing that claim immediately following the incident. If they believe they were wrong and Deschler should not have been killed, they needed to declare an investigation into the incident within 24 hours. The fact that the raid is two weeks old and we have heard next to nothing is completely unacceptable.
The FBI and the local police are lockstep silent and the family is considering going to court. Is this a pattern with the FBI? Yes, it is. by Biden’s FBI Shoots First – Avoids Questions Later saying:
The FBI shot dead Craig Robertson, a 74-year-old woodworker who had allegedly threatened other politicians, including Gavin Newsom and just about every Democrat except Jimmy Carter. Reports on the shooting did not include original-source documentation of the alleged threats.......... As it happens, deployment of deadly force is longstanding FBI practice.
He goes on to discuss some history about the FBI's violent mindset saying:
This month marks 31 years since the FBI deployed massive military force against a single family. For choosing to live in rural Idaho, U.S. Army veteran Randy Weaver and his family were smeared as “white separatists.” In the Ruby Ridge siege of 1992, brought on by an ATF entrapment scheme, the FBI deployed some 400 heavily armed agents, helicopters, and armored personnel carriers against Weaver and his family. The rules of engagement allowed deadly force against any family member seen with a firearm, but in effect it was shoot on sight.
An FBI sniper murdered an unarmed woman holding a child, and it was just "unfortunate". And the sniper was praised. Then 25–member FBI SWAT team that showed up at the residence of pro-life activist Mark Houck in the early morning hours with 10 or 15 marked and unmarked units.
“Long guns pointed at me, heavily armored vests, ballistic helmets, ballistic shields, a battering ram.” Houck, a father of seven children, spotted an FBI agent in the back of the house, and at least five federal agents on his porch “with M-16s pointed at me and now my wife as she entered the opening of the door.”
What threat did this peaceful family man pose to the FBI? None whatsoever, and he was found not guilty, but such blatant corruption by the FBI in their efforts to destroy those who exercise their Constitutional rights, and in this case over abortion, someone at the FBI should have been charged criminally over this. But that's not going to happen, and here's why.
“Desire to wage war on ordinary Americans—to disadvantage them and even to kill them—had long been bubbling in the ruling class’s basements,” wrote the late Angelo Codevilla in 2019. Branding ordinary Americans as white supremacists, domestic terrorists, and violent extremists is a prelude to deadly violence against them. Look for more of the same as the 2024 election approaches. The struggle against FBI violence is the struggle of memory against forgetting.
This is part and parcel of the FBI's attack on Christians, and in this particular case, , Catholics who attend mass, and especially those who attend the churches with the traditional Latin mass, who the FBI brands as "extremists" and the church faithful as "domestic terrorists".
FBI, You Got Some Splainin To Do!
