Carlson's report came on the heels of a claim by Attorney General Merrick Garland accusing “the white race” of being the “top domestic violent extremist threat” in the country, using the Capitol false flag incident as "proof."
“He, like most people you see on television, wants you to believe, and wants history to record, that Jan. 6 was an attempted insurrection by white supremacist revolutionaries bent on taking over this country,” Carlson stated during the segment.
“We came this close, Merrick Garland said. And that’s why ‘We must adopt a broader societal response to tackle the problem’s deeper roots.'”
But it turns out that it is very likely -- very likely -- that the FBI was involved in setting up the false flag incident.
“Without fail, the government has thrown the book at most people who were present in the Capitol on Jan. 6,” Carlson stated. “There was a nationwide dragnet to find them. And many of them are still in solitary confinement tonight.”
“But, strangely, some of the key people who participated on Jan. 6 have not been charged. Look at the documents. The government calls those people ‘unindicted co-conspirators.’ What does that mean? Well, it means that in potentially every single case, they were FBI operatives.”
Is Carlson just making this stuff up as he goes? Hardly; and a recent investigative study backs him up.
Published by the Columbia [University] Human Rights Review, the report, "The Anatomy of a Federal Terrorism Prosecution: A Blueprint for Repression and Entrapment," published in December 2020, lays out in great detail the myriad of FBI operations utilizing deep cover operatives whose job it is to set up otherwise innocent Americans as "terrorists" to then justify persecuting entire segments of our society.
The bureau was responsible for this during the War on Terror, targeting many innocent Muslims, and now the Biden regime appears to be using the same blueprint to entrap and persecute MAGA-supporting Trump followers.
"The events of September 11th sparked a massive transformation in both the shape and scope of United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) surveillance and counter-terrorism operations. In the wake of September 11th, the FBI shifted from being an agency that investigated past or ongoing crimes to one focused on proactively gathering information to prevent future crimes," the report begins.
"The FBI not only developed a new framework for identifying likely future terrorists—the so-called ‘radicalization’ spectrum—but also created new investigative tools, expanding the strategies of surveillance and entrapment that it had honed during the Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) era," it added.
"While many have highlighted the diagnostic flaws and political implications of the FBI’s use of the radicalization spectrum as an analytical tool," the report says, not many have attempted to draw lessons and conclusions from improper use of the tactic to entrap and prosecute people who otherwise would not have attempted to commit an act of terrorism.
"President Donald Trump’s May 2020 announcement that the United States would declare 'Antifa' (short for Anti-Fascist) a domestic terrorist organization is only the most recent example of the FBI’s widening aperture for domestic terrorism, and follows on the heels of prior revelations regarding the targeting of other communities and activist movements, including the Black Lives Matter and immigrants’ rights movements," the report states.
And now, it's being expanded again by the Biden regime -- to white Trump supporters. This includes otherwise unconstitutional surveillance practices that are conducted covertly, without a proper court order, and increasingly with the assistance of big tech.
[...[A] hypothetical FBI agent could initially insert themself into a group or community using a fake name or back-story, and then attend meetings, recruit informants, collect and look through the group’s trash, and take photographic and video surveillance of the group members, all without any 'factual predicate' (i.e. any factual basis for suspecting criminal activity)," the report states.
Researchers were sure to note that this kind of unconstitutional surveillance hasn't just happened a couple of times -- it has happened tens of thousands of times in recent years.
"The FBI has used these assessment tactics extensively since their authorization, massively expanding its network of informants and surveillance," the report states.
"The most recent statistics from FBI documents released under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that, between 2009 and 2011, the Bureau opened 82,325 assessments [our emphasis] of different individuals and communities, only 1,986 of which resulted in factual predicates necessary for a preliminary or full investigation," said the report.
But the FBI isn't the only agency involved here. In fact, you could say violating Americans' privacy rights now involves a 'whole of government' approach.
"Not only has the FBI made it easier for its own agents to surveil community members without factual justification, but, in recent years, it has also enjoyed increased access to information held by other agencies, such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the National Security Administration (NSA), and local police departments," says the report, adding that "fusion centers" serve as a sort of one-stop shop for various local, state, and federal law enforcement.
But how to get convictions? Easy, as the report explains:
Mass surveillance and profiling through SARs and assessments, combined with enhanced inter-agency information-sharing through the fusion centers, has provided the FBI with an engine to dramatically expand its web of confidential informants and agent provocateurs.
According to investigative journalist Trevor Aaronson, there are roughly ten-times as many confidential informants in the FBI’s network now as there were at the peak of COINTELPRO.
And for each of the fifteen thousand registered informants, “there are as many as three unofficial ones, known in FBI parlance as ‘hip pockets.’”
These hip pockets are used “in contravention of FBI and Guidelines mandates so [the agents] will not have to complete the paperwork, obtain required approvals, or risk disclosing their informants’ identities to prosecutors or others,” according to the Office of the Inspector General.
Without question, Americans have lost control of their premier federal law enforcement agency, which is now actively deployed against the very citizens its agents have sworn to protect.
It's time for the FBI to be disbanded, period. It's gone rogue, and no one is being held accountable.
