Christopher Wray's Failing PR Campaign
to Save the FBI's Reputation

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 3/2/2023 4:20:27 AM

In the last couple of days, I’ve written about how FBI Director Christopher Wray admitted that his agency concluded “quite some time ago” that the COVID virus escaped from a Wuhan, China virology lab, and how “sources” recently told the Washington Post that FBI agents were against the August 2022 raid on former President’s Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. What’s the commonality between the two stories? They both make the FBI look better, and they both indicate that Wray might be playing a game of CYA and distancing himself from the dictatorial, partisan Attorney General, Merrick Garland.

He offers no facts, just keeps repeating that the FBI treats everyone the same, regardless of the facts in front of him.

Bret Baier Is Chris Wallace and Shep Smith all dressed up! As you may recall, Baier was the dirtbag who called Arizona WAAAY too early in 2020 and started the dominos. I do not under any circumstances ever trust anything he says or does! Someone in the FBI or on the left BOUGHT him!

Both Baier and Wray are liars so this interview didn't accomplish what both tried to do. Bottom line is no sane person will ever trust the FBI or Fox News for that matter ever again.

How can you 'save' something that is already lost? More lies? They used to be highly regarded...but when they come into a local investigation they have heavy boots and stomp all over it...the days of Eliot Ness are long is trust and accountability...

Why Faye Wray wasn't fired as FBI head by Pres Trump following the 2020 election is beyond me. I understand that Trump took the advice of people who did not share his interests and I'll chalk that up to his entry into a field where he wasn't up-to-snuff on how things work. But Wray should have been gone after the election, if for no reason than to bring the FBI cimes to the light of day.

Their reputation has been exactly the same since the FBI was created by the cross-dressing Hoover. When you are above the law, anything goes.

The House voted unanimously Friday to pass a bill requiring Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines to declassify existing intelligence on Covid’s origins, sending the bill to President Biden’s desk. The bill, which was previously approved by the Senate, passed the House 419-0 and would require that Haines declassify any intelligence related to links between the pandemic and the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the bat coronavirus research lab that was operating under unsafe conditions in the very city where the first cases of Covid emerged. The bill’s sponsor, Senator Josh Hawley (R., Mo.), hailed the vote as a step towards greater transparency.

Financial regulators have closed Silicon Valley Bank and taken control of its deposits, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. announced Friday, leaving companies and wealthy individuals largely tied to the tech sector unsure of what will happen to their money. According to press releases from regulators, the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation closed SVB and named the FDIC as the receiver. The FDIC in turn has created the Deposit Insurance National Bank of Santa Clara, which now holds the insured deposits from SVB. The FDIC said in the announcement that insured depositors will have access to their deposits no later than Monday morning. SVB's branch offices will also reopen

James L. Buckley celebrated many firsts in his long career as one of America’s most influential conservatives, and today, that includes his birthday. “This is his 100th birthday,” said Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) in a Senate floor speech today. “James Buckley's commitment to service whether on the battlefield in these halls in Congress or in the courtroom is a reminder of the power, joy and honor of being an American,” Lee added, a noted constitutional conservative himself. In many conservative corners of Washington and the country, Buckley parties are taking place to recall his influence on American politics as a one-term New York senator, a top aide in President Ronald Reagan’s

The second stage of a Chinese rocket that launched three spy satellites has just broken up this week over Texas, according to the U.S. Naval Institute. Here’s what the Chang Zheng “Long March” rocket looked like taking off from China in June. The four-ton rocket reentered the atmosphere on Wednesday at 17,000 miles per hour and disintegrated, but it’s only being reported now. While they haven’t found any debris yet from the rocket stage, they’re saying the debris field could be miles wide and hundreds of miles long. It’s not clear what kind of a hazard this could pose, and the Chinese have had issues in the past
Federal Court Reinstates Law Allowing

Florida will be allowed to defund Planned Parenthood on June 1, after a federal judge ended a permanent injunction on Tuesday blocking part of a 2016 law. U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle, of the United States District Court Northern District of Florida, reversed the permanent injunction on part of House Bill 1411, which prohibits state and local dollars from going to institutions that provide abortions. Hinkle stated in his order that the “essential basis of the ruling [in 2016] was the right to an abortion under Roe v. Wade.” But with Roe overturned in the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision last summer, the previous order no longer had legal standing.

Eight people have been shot dead and three others seriously injured in an attack on a Jehovah's Witness building in the German city of Hamburg. Police say the shooting was carried out by a lone gunman who may be among the dead, although this has yet to be officially confirmed. Shots were fired at the Jehovah's Witnesses' Kingdom Hall in the Gross Borstel district, with police alerted at 9.03pm on Thursday. Police said the gunman opened fire after entering the building, before allegedly fleeing to the first floor. Officers arriving on the scene then heard a shot from an upper floor and found a body upstairs.

The House voted to place new restrictions on federal employees pressuring or helping private entities to censor political speech , a response by Republicans to the release of internal Twitter documents that detailed the close relationship that federal agencies have with Big Tech. The Protecting Speech from Government Interference Act passed 219-206 in the lower chamber . The legislation would expand the Hatch Act, a law prohibiting federal employees from engaging in political activity, to include a prohibition on employees working with private companies or platforms to censor lawful speech. Republicans have argued that government officials have collaborated with Big Tech to censor conservatives.

When Republican border governors began busing illegal aliens that the federal government released into their states to northern big cities like New York, Washington, and Chicago, the Democratic mayors in those cities whined incessantly that they were being forced to make good on their promises to be a welcome haven for illegal aliens. Actually, their whine was more of a political attack. “It is unimaginable what the governor of Texas has done, when you think about this country, a country that has always been open to those who were fleeing persecution,” New York City Mayor Eric Adams said. “We’ve always welcomed them.

Kamala Harris's verbal utterances are bizarre, repetitive, and often not completed. (snip) Aphasics may do this to hide the fact that they can literally not hold onto the meaning of their narrative, to carry it to completion. So, they make up an ending to the story and then perhaps flip into a semantically weird ending. Harris often simply repeats her first sentence. This is not planned for a rational purpose, and she often solves her semantic confusion by bursting out in stereotypical laughter, with gestures, to encourage her listeners to think she just did a funny.

For forty-five years (1964 to 2009), the United States experienced significant progress in race relations. Thanks to the efforts of individual citizens in their communities throughout all regions of the country, this nation was well on its way to racial healing. In 2008 only 18% of Americans were greatly concerned or worried about the state of race relations in the country as nearly 70% thought that relations between Whites and Blacks were very or somewhat good. In 2009, the most divisive and societally destructive president in American history, Barack Obama, came into office determined to reverse this trend by manipulating the Black citizenry into abandoning racial harmony by utilizing
