FBI Misses Another Mass Shooter, Middle East Heating Up, Banks Melting Down Again

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (WNW 322 2.16.18)  (Updated with actual letter form 24 year FBI veteran in “After the Wrap-Up” section)

Looks like the FBI was told about the mass murderer before he went on a rampage that left 17 dead in a Florida high school this week. This isn’t the first time the FBI was tipped off about a mass murder plot and did not stop it.  The shooter that killed 9 in a South Carolina church was allowed by the FBI to buy a gun.  The FBI were tipped off about the Boston Bombers, the Fort Hood Shooter and the Pulse Nightclub mass murderer all well ahead of time.  Is this incompetence or “too stupid to be stupid”??  Should someone be fired?

Looks like the Middle East is heating up again. An Israeli F-16 was shot down, and Israel warned Iran about intruding into its airspace with a drone.  The Iranian drone was also recently shot down.  New threats are coming from both sides.

Are the markets on the mend after the latest sell-off, or are we setting up for an even bigger plunge? Why are 10-Year Treasury rates headed higher?  Are we headed for another credit crisis?  These are all questions Wall Street money managers are contemplating before the next big market moves.

Charles Hugh Smith of the popular financial website OfTwoMinds.com will be the guest for the Early Sunday Release.

By the way below is the entire letter sent to me last week from a retired veteran FBI agent with 24 years of service:



Thank you for, in my opinion, your best Weekly News Wrap!

I spent 24 years in the FBI as a Special Agent and Supervisor. I retired in 2007, at which time the fissures within the FBI were becoming more and more apparent. There was a distinct dividing line developing between the old line FBI Agents, whose fealty lies with the Constitution and the American people, and the new line agents whose fealty was with Director Mueller, and what has been revealed with time to be the Deep State.

The reason I retired was Mueller’s Five Year Up or Out Policy, adopted to remove senior FBI Supervisors, loyal to the Constitution, from the ranks of FBI Management. The Policy, simply stated, required anyone who had held a Supervisory Special Agent ( SSA) position for more than 5 years, to return to FBIHQ, or be forced out of management. Prior to Mueller, all field Supervisors were required to spend 7-10 years as successful Street Agents, then spend 3-5 years as SSAs at FBIHQ, then become SSAs in the Field. To become a SSA in Division 6 ( Criminal Investigative Division), as a Street Agent you were required to have successfully taken several cases through trial, to have been a Case Agent on a Group I Undercover Operation, with positive results / convictions, and preferably have served as an Undercover Agent, before you could even apply for a SSA position at FBIHQ. This policy guaranteed that agents applying for SSA were battle tested, experienced, accomplished and hardworking men and woman admired by their peers. Mueller’s policy turned all that upside down, allowed politically motivated, less qualified, woefully inexperienced candidates to become Supervisors and to hold the key positions ( SSA) which determine the workload of Criminal, Counter Terrorism, and FCI squads,  throughout the country. The last place a great SSA wanted to be was FBIHQ. The real work is in the field not at FBIHQ. Needless to say, most experienced SSAs stepped down and retired rather than return to morass of FBIHQ.

In my opinion, this is how the Deep State got its foot in the door of the FBI. During the Obama Administration, all of the FBI SSAs, that achieved their position through merit, had been forced from their positions under the 5 Years Up or Out Plan. This allowed the Deep State to take over middle management, whose ranks become upper management.

The rest is history. The FBI Senior Executive Service (SES) on the 7th Floor was politicized, middle management politicized, and good Street Agents were not allowed to pursuit public corruption investigations, or any investigations which encroached on Deep State criminal activity or operations.

Sadly, in my opinion, most of the FBI Management is compromised, and the corruption has now begun to spread to the rank and file, as you so astutely point out.

I have lost friends, inside the ranks of retired FBI Agents, because I believe that the corruption in the FBI has reached Agent level. It was not a Senior Executive Service (SES) Member(s) of the FBI looking at and analyzing Clinton’s Computer Server, it was not SES personnel reviewing and analyzing the information on Anthony Weiner’s lap top, it was not SES personnel testifying before the Judge in FISA Court, it was not SES personnel interviewing Tea Party Members when working jointly with the IRS, it was not SES personnel handling the Cooperating Witness, writing the debriefing FD-302s, listening to, and transcribing ELSUR tapes, in connection with Uranium 1.

The list can go on, you get my point.

Many case agents, and support personnel, who uncovered evidence of criminal activity,  stood down their criminal investigations based on being told to do so by corrupt management, not based on the evidence, or based on the results of presenting the case to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for a Prosecutive Opinion.

Thank you for having the courage ( unlike Sean Hannity and others) to state the obvious, the FBI, DOJ, CIA, NSA, and State Department have traitors throughout their ranks. All of these agencies need to be purged of these individuals. Failure to investigate, identify, indict, and prosecute, these traitors poses a direct threat to the Constitution, our God given rights, the Republic and the Rule of Law.

God Bless you and your family.”

    I’m watching all this from another country and I saw the police chief come out and immediately ask for more surveillance!! If they can’t manage to stop an attack when the person has written in plain english, on an open site, you have to wonder what they’re really doing spying on people. It doesn’t look good.

    • Efrem Erskine

      Ann you hit the nail on the head.
      The FBI has been infiltrated by the Muslim Brothers, a monkey wrench purposely gumming up the works with the goal of the removal of a free press set out by the founding fathers of these still United States of America, then bring Muslim order out of chaos.

      December 2001, the U.S. Treasury Department designated the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, then the largest Muslim charity based in the U.S., as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” group. U.S. authorities raided the group’s headquarters and seized its assets.*

      In November 2008, five former leaders of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), a Muslim charity based in the U.S., were found guilty by a U.S. court for facilitating the transfer of more than $12 million to Hamas.*

      The U.S. government presented testimony during the trial. According to the FBI, “[I]n the early 1990’s, Hamas’ parent organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, planned to establish a network of organizations in the U.S. to spread a militant Islamist message and raise money for Hamas. The HLF became the chief fundraising arm for the Palestine Committee in the U.S. created by the Muslim Brotherhood to support Hamas.” Among the seized evidence presented by the U.S. government was an internal Brotherhood “Explanatory Memorandum On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” addressed to the members of the Brotherhood’s Shura Council, and dated May 22, 1991. The document articulated the Brotherhood’s goals for North America as, among others, “present[ing] Islam as a civilization alternative, and support[ing] the global Islamic State wherever it is.”* The document also emphasized that to achieve these and other multi-stage goals, “the Movement must… carry out this grand mission as a ‘Civilization Jihadist’ responsibility which lies on the shoulders of Muslims and—on top of them—the Muslim Brotherhood in this country.”* This meant that the Brotherhood’s “work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

      The document emphasized the importance of establishing an “Islamic Center” in each city as a base for the Brotherhood’s multifaceted work, as well as many other institutions that would serve as the foundation of the group’s jihad efforts in North America. The document also included a list of Brotherhood organizations and “the organizations of our friends,” which included prominent Muslim organizations in America, including the Islamic Society of North America, Muslim Students Association, North American Islamic Trust, and Islamic Circle of North America.

      Kalergi-Coudenhove plan, Frederick? But, Efrem, it ain’t the Muslims in charge of the plan.

        And it makes me sick someone could be that evil to inclined to wipe out their own race!

      • Marie

        Please do a piece on the Kalergi-Coudenhove Plan. Thank you.

  4. Paul ...

    Why are Treasury rates headed higher? … likely because the Deep State’s intention is to crash the markets (in order to pin the blame on Trump) … however … once they are forced to abandon rate rises (as is very likely) … the dollar is toast … and precious metals will soar!!

  5. Paul ...

    The FBI traitors to the Constitution purposely allow crazy deranged terrorists to shoot our precious children just so they can call again for gun control … how come we don’t hear the Demon-rats calling for the removal of steering wheels from trucks when crazy deranged terrorists drive them into pedestrians???

    • Paul ...

      The Demon-rats … say to the American people … give up your guns or we will shoot and kill your children! …
      The Reptile-kins … say to foreign people … give up your missiles or we will nuke and kill your children! …
      Who are we to support? … the Demon-rats or the Reptile-kins? …
      How about “We the People” supporting Humanity … NO WOMEN – NO CHILDREN!!!!

      • Paul ...

        Where do these Rat-Snakes that “kill children” hang out? … many are found in Washington DC … within the very halls of Congress, the State Dept., FBI and Justice Dept … but they exist “everywhere” in the world … Trump is trying his best to root out “these child murders” … starting with the pedophiles!!

        • Paul ...

          Do these Evil Demons really think that by sacrificing our children … they will be Saved from our guns! … the way other murderers were saved from their sins of lust and greed by sacrificing Christ? … wake up you murderers of good in the world … we the people are rising from the dead!!

          • Paul ...

            And we have the support of “off world entities” (i.e. God the Father and his Son) … who abhor the sacrificial murder of women and children … and likely somehow helped Trump get elected to purge us of all the evil pedophile murderers (just like “entities from Heaven” helped humanity out years ago (by nuking Sodom and Gomorrah) … those reports of earthquakes in Denver, Washington DC, etc.. etc. suggests that many of the evil Elites underground bases are now being “systematically nuked” (to once again protect humanity from the evil monsters who will willingly kill children for political reasons)!

  6. Silence is Golden

    I do have something to add …after all…..and its quite alarming.

    • Paul from Indiana

      The only way “money” comes into the system now is via debt, i.e. the money is “loaned” into existence. If you pay off a credit card balance or a bank loan, the money is “paid” out of existence. The fact that interbank lending is freezing up points to a credit crisis in my mind. Along with the extremely low velocity of money, we have economic stagnation on Main Street and everybody but the people on the coasts see this all the time. Love him or hate him, our fellow Watchdogger, Jerry, talks about these things all the time when he isn’t cheerleading for the Chicoms and their world-beating petro-yuan. Best always. PM

      • Silence is Golden

        Take another look at the link I posted.
        The Fed has decided to discontinue to publish the IB Lending data!!!
        Credit crisis. …perhaps.
        It’s looking like 2007 all over again.
        What happened to all that liquidity that greased the wheels and freed the markets up?? It’s tied up in Debt instruments.
        I agree….Stagnation is here ….and here to stay.
        When the TNX crosses the 30yr. ..we have the dreaded inverted yield curve….a precursor of Bad times.
        You are correct. …only MUCH HIGHER LEVELS OF DEBT can keep the sinking ship afloat….temporarily.
        As I’ve said many times….expect a lower dollar….Inflation….higher PM’s ….and continuation of the Greater Depression.
        In my mind there are many similarities today with what occurred in late 1920s -early 30s. When the trade wars kick into gear…..we will see untold human suffering. The US will not give up the King Dollar regime without a fight.

      • Paul ...

        As loans are paid off … the imaginary fiat Ponzi money that the banksters created out of thin air “goes out of existence” … but everyone should keep this in mind … and remember it well … what “doesn’t go out of existence” is the physical things that were bought with the banksters fiat Ponzi loan (i.e. a house, land, gold, silver, etc.) … which represents collateral (a real form of money) that can be used in barter and trade … so lets not simply look at one side of the equation (worrying like Harry Dent about money disappearing from the system creating deflation) … as the Fed prints more and more Ponzi fiat money out of thin air with its hyper-inflationary QE to infinity programs … the world’s two(2) quadrillion in debt will be paid off … but “remember what will remain” … the physical tangible things you bought with those bankster Ponzi loans … and it is those physical tangible things that will become the foundation of “a new money system” (as the worthless fiat Ponzi paper disappears from existence) … so what would you rather keep under your bed? … fiat paper Ponzi IOU’s from the Federal Reserve (as Harry Dent proposes) or some real “physical” gold and silver coins that will “not disappear out of existence” as the Fed’s Ponzi money scheme comes crashing down … if you don’t grab “a physical chair” now … you are going to be left standing with nothing but worthless fiat Ponzi “promises to pay” when the music stops!!

        • Paul ...

          The Fed and World central banks are now in panic mode … and are printing fiat Ponzi paper dollars, yen, euro’s, yuan, etc. at a level never seen before in human history … this will inevitably lead to collapsing fiat paper currencies and hyper-inflation … this is not the time to be saving under your bed “Fed Ponzi notes promising to pay you more fiat Ponzi paper” (as Harry Dent suggests) … this is the time to be buying gold and silver (at current very low prices) … for soon … it will be virtually impossible to buy precious metals at any Ponzi fiat price!

          • Paul ...

            And all the wars fought … and all the women and children murdered and killed for the lust of more and more fiat paper money … will have been all for naught … for as Hillary, Bush, etc., etc. stack “paper” (money, stocks, bonds, etc.) under their beds … all the gold and silver in the world is being accumulated by us Watchdogs along with Russia, China, India, etc.!

  7. Matt M

    The frequency of corruption within the Feds is not only stunning but sickening. I don’t think the U.S. will ever be the same after all this lawless behavior is shown the light of day.
    My hope is the just citizenry unite, and greatly outnumber, those who disregard all things Constitutional for a flawed ideology. May we, the Constitutional patriots, use the post reveal platform for taking our country back to law, order, liberty, and justice.

    • Paul ...

      You know … instead of outlawing guns … we should outlaw wood chippers and wood shredders … and at a minimum have all politicians (like Hillary for instance) … register their purchases with a newly created Trump “Wood Chipper Control Agency” … so we can have a record of just how many wood chippers were purchased by our politicians every year … go here if you don’t know the difference between a wood chipper and wood shredder … https://www.google.com/search?q=wood+shredder+vs+wood+chipper&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b

    Very insightful analysis not seen elsewhere Greg! “Truth Bombs” a bit disheartening but we have to realize them before we can start to address them. FEAR NOT, catch our breath and continue onward! Also, take time to enjoy some of the simple and good things life has to offer along the way. My mother used to say; “The best things in life are free” and “Your health is your wealth”.

    Australians and Americans More Alike Than They Think

    The Untold Lives of British Convicts Sold to America

    Many know that Australia was once a colony of convicts hailing from Britain. But have you heard about America’s very own convict past?
    One Australian scholar set out to tell their story.

    Between 50,000 and 120,000 British convicts were transported to America, a fact that makes many Americans “incredulous,” says Railton. This is often because convicts were politely referred to as “servants.”
    In addition, the scarcity of distinct record sets for convicts decreases the odds of Americans knowing about their British convict ancestors.
    Railton is an advocate for Americans discovering their similarities to Australians, “I also think it is important for people to understand that Australians are not unique in having convict ancestors.”

    Greg, I recall hearing/seeing Globalist Controlled Hypocritical Trojan Horse Obama say at an event while POTUS “The End of the Republic Never Looked So Good” with a smirk on his face. I saw it on the internet somewhere a while ago. That said it all to me about what he REALLY was about. Yes, you are correct he REALLY was out to DESTROY the country and from the numerous info on the internet and alternative media since still works toward that agenda behind the scenes.

    I am a great fan of yours, but I think you oversimplify the problem with tracking potential criminals. There are just too many threats to track and most of these invariably turn out to be benign. Our efforts are much better spent on our infiltration efforts of dissident separatist groups that threaten our way of life. Just for the record, we have prevented many large rogue terror operations that are never even reported in the news. In addition, it is batter for us to supply and assist local SWAT teams to do the actual serving of Warrants and other intervention operations, since they don’t illicit the extreme criticism that federally orchestrated interventions do. During the Boston lockdown for example, some people accused us of violating peoples civil rights. The thing they forget is that we had dangerous killers on the loose that had to be stopped. Its amazing to me that when people need us, we receive resounding praise for our service to the cointry, but then the same people are always so quick to criticize. There is only one way to deal with a terrorist and that is to decapitate them all with a high energy round shot from a high powered snipers rifle shot through their skulls. We are safe only when they are all dead. Unfortunately, there is a lot of killing left to do.

    • Greg Hunter

      Then why doesn’t the FBI and DOJ stop wasting resources trying to frame the Trump Administration? They wasted resources exonerating Hillary (who is a criminal and traitor) and used resources trying to frame Trump of crimes he DID NOT COMMIT. It is that simple. Thank you for your comment.

      • LEO Punisher

        Cant speak for the DOJ, but most rank and file agents are decent hardworking people with records that are spotless. There’s a few at the top that get into the political end for what reason I cant imagine, but I grant you it stinks.

        • Greg Hunter

          I didn’t say all but I do have a 24 year veteran FBI source that laid out the plane to take good agents with much experience and replace them with political hacks all the way down to the mid management level. He also said there were some at the agent level in the field as well. I am hoping these good players can step up and reveal the treason and sedition that is clearly happening with the attempt to frame Donald trump to remove him form office and the overt exoneration of a pure indictable criminal Hillary Clinton for fraud and treason with U.S. uranium and bribes taken as “donations” in a global charity fraud. This is a bit too big to miss and too stupid to be stupid. There is a huge problem at the FBI and many rooms of the house need to be bleached. I simply want the real FBI to stand up and take these traitors to “We the People” down–hard.

          • LEO Punisher

            Frankly, thats a bunch of conspiracy bunk. Our scope of involvement has been limited because peoples feelings were hurt after the situation at Waco with the Branch Davidians who killed their own kids rather than surrender to us. Then to boot, we got blamed for it and some fine officers defamed. Take Lon Horiuchi for example who was a fine upstanding agent with an impeccable record all the way back to his years as a decorated graduate of West Point. They absolutely vilified this man for merely performing his job. When dealing with Clive Bundy we had to soft pedal so that we didnt upset the apple cart. So we let an arch criminal have his way despite the law when justice would have been served by killing him and all of his accomplices. Now, we arent even permitted to present a show of force and have to pass the real work to local SWAT teams in order to avoid controversy ourselves. Local SWAT teams do a good job, but tts demoralizing for many of our agents to limit their role to merely detective work and not see any real action. Its what we train for on the gun ranges that makes the job worthwhile.

            • Greg Hunter

              Please stop. “Lon Horiuchi” was an FBI sniper who shot an unarmed woman while she was holding a newborn baby at the infamous “Ruby Ridge.” Do I really have to say anymore? If so read: http://www.gunssavelife.com/guess-who-else-troy-has-hired-lon-horiuchis-partner/ It’s not all FBI and I am not talking about local and state law enforcement. That said, there is a very large problem at the FBI given the revelations in the past few years and most recently the FBI trying to frame Donald Trump with a fake Russian collusion crime with fake “Intel” paid for by Hillary Clinton.

              • LEO Punisher

                With regards to Trump I agree 100% with you that the initial plots to smear his campaign were improper. Hell, I even voted for the guy because he was a much better candidate than Hillary Clinton ever could have been.
                That said, there were several in management (high paid guys) that wanted to disqualify him early and Brennan even wanted to push the button on him several times but got cold feet because he was afraid of getting pawn sacrificed and outed after the fact. However, regarding Ruby Ridge involvement at the Federal level was completely proper. It wasnt until it was all over that we all found out that Weaver wasn’t properly served on the bench warrant and the surveillance showed the whole family walking around with guns. It was the locals that stirred things up to a frenzy. That said, in the very first interaction with the Weavers, one of our officers was killed by the Harris boy after the young Weaver kid opened up on the Federal position. It was plain to everyone that all the individuals on the hill were prepared to fire upon Federal agents. When Lon felt he had the chance, he was attempting to put down two critters with one shot, but Mr. Weaver moved to the left so Mrs. Weaver took a direct hit to the skull and mercifully did not suffer. Our agent that got shot and killed suffered immeasurably before he succumbed due to his wound. The rules of engagement were clear that the lethal force could AND SHOULD be used. You might not like it, but Lon Horiuchi is a patriot and a true hero and performed his duty according to his training.

                • Greg Hunter

                  You said, “regarding Ruby Ridge involvement at the Federal level was completely proper.” I said and FNI sniper, sot an unarmed woman holding a new born.” How and the hell is that “proper.
