Fight Over New FBI HQ Part of Larger Debate
on Draining the Federal Swamp

Original Article

As of now, House Republicans have removed funds from the FY 2024 budget for the controversial $3.5 billion proposed relocation of the FBI’s Washington, D.C. headquarters to a new complex at one of three locations in the D.C. suburbs of Virginia or Maryland. Some House Republicans want to keep the FBI headquarters at its current location and view the relocation proposal as unwise and wasteful. Others want to downsize, defund or eliminate the Bureau – and not to reward it with a sprawling new headquarters complex – because they believe it has been weaponized against conservatives.

Not holding my breath that House GOP can hold this line, but this is encouraging news. The FBI does not deserve any kind of reward like a new HQ building in the suburbs. Let them stay in the crime ridden DC metro area.

If the Republicans fund the FBI HQ, they may as well resign, and go on home.

Their new HQ should have white tiles on the walls and flush handles on every chair.

Defund and disband the FBI. Raze the current building to the ground and salt the earth. Pour concrete over the whole thing. Raise an appropriate memorial to all those killed by the FBI, such as the Weaver family members on Ruby Ridge. F'in Basturd Inbreds.

Move FBI HQs to downtown Detroit. Let their employees take their lives into their hands getting to work every day. Perhaps then they will do their jobs.

You’ve got to be kidding me! This is still in the works after everything regarding this corrupt agency has been revealed?! Are Republicans tone deaf? No sane person wants to reward the FBI with new facilities, they want them in jail. Period.

While we are draining the Swamp, can we get rid of that architect or federal procured who is responsible for that AWFUL building in Houston that serves as FBI local HQ? It looks like an unfinished project left and abandoned by a bankrupt builder. I am glad I don't have to start my day looking at that demoralizing piece of trash that libels the environment.

DC needs cleaned out. Every department should be moved to different locations through out the country. Put the FBI in Nashville as an example or DOJ in Idaho and just close down the worthless departments such as DOEducation. Our schools started going down immediately after this department was formed and it is only getting worse.

Relocate the headquarters to Biteme's mansion grounds...or better yet the sewers in D.C. which is where they belong. There are probably a lot of great agents, but not the head..a fish rots from the head down...

I have heard that few agents want the HQ in Maryland anyways. Most live on the VA side of the border and few live in DC itself. But - Maryland has a new Democrat governor while VA is Republican, so 2 of the 3 sites are in the blue state.

Ask Alan Dershowitz about other people’s opinions and he’d likely say, “There's no such thing as a false idea or a false opinion.” The Harvard constitutional law professor emeritus and celebrated defense attorney made that observation during an interview August 9 in reference to some of Donald Trump’s legal travails, but Dershowitz’s analysis could just as easily apply to the broader society. At least it should.Until recently, simple opinions were unremarkable; people would observe things and formulate a point of view. Not everyone would agree with a particular opinion, but that’s okay,

Republicans continue to sour on former Vice President Mike Pence, the latest survey from the Economist/YouGov found. Republicans remain relatively split regarding their opinions on presidential hopeful Pence. Overall, 47 percent have a very or somewhat favorable view of the former vice president, compared to 45 percent who have an unfavorable view. For greater perspective, according to a summary of the survey, 89 percent of Republicans had a favorable view of Pence prior to the 2020 presidential election.

Chutkan signaled she will gag Trump in the middle of a presidential campaign.

There’s a group of people who control what you are allowed to see – the news you read, the videos you watch, the posts you engage with. You haven’t heard of them. You don’t know their names, but they determine, through methods both direct and indirect, whether you are allowed to be exposed to particular messages. Their decisions can bankrupt companies, silence voices and fundamentally shift cultural norms. Who are these people and how do they do this? Well, at the top level you have a network of global elites who have created a universal framework full of guidelines and ratings designed to enforce “approved” narratives and punish disapproved ones.

Since Taiwanese President Lee Teng-hui’s June 1995 visit to his alma mater, Cornell University, to give the commencement address, China has reacted with coercive measures against Taiwan. Lee’s visit was used by Beijing to launch a series of ballistic missiles into the waters around the island. Beijing reaction caused the Third Taiwan Straits Crisis of 1995-1996. Unlike the previous crises of 1954-1955 and 1958, the Third Crisis demonstrated Beijing’s growing capabilities to implement a blockade or invasion of Taiwan. Since the late-1990s, China’s military capabilities have grown spectacularly to the point where they are a formidable danger to the U.S., its allies, and to Taiwan.

Special counsel Jack Smith's team obtained a search warrant in January for records related to former President Donald Trump's Twitter account, and a judge levied a $350,000 fine on the company for a delay in complying, according to court documents released Wednesday. The details were included in a decision from the federal appeals court in Washington rejecting Twitter's claim that it should not have been held in contempt or sanctioned. X, the San Francisco-based platform formerly known as Twitter, sent an automated reply to a request for comment, saying it would respond soon.

Gun sales do not seem to be affected by the Biden economy or the inflation that has come with it. July of this year marked 48 straight months of record gun sales. People are obviously concerned about crime, but one of the other things driving this is the constant threat of greater gun control from Democrats. People used to call Obama the world’s greatest gun salesman, but this trend has continued even with him out of office.

In April, the Democratic Party announced it would no longer use its longtime lawyer Marc Elias, and now we know why. The Democrats got tired of losing, or as Axios put it, Elias’ approach often “backfired.” Elias himself does not tire of losing, and here’s why. His lawsuits — parading as a fight for “democracy” by tearing down voter ID, secure drop boxes, and signature matching — have nothing to do with our nation’s interests. Instead, as Elias’ allies admitted to Axios, his work is nothing more than “a political strategy that is actually a business strategy,”

With each new piece of shocking evidence that Joe Biden, as vice president, engaged with his son in a foreign bribery scheme, the national media react with something along the lines of, “But, ya know, in the end, Republicans haven’t yet proven anything in their Republican-y investigations.” Devon Archer, a former business partner of Biden’s son Hunter, testified Monday to Congress that Joe Biden had been included on calls between the two partners by speakerphone. That’s in contradiction to the president’s repeated claim that when it comes to Hunter’s unreal professional life, he’s Helen Keller in a burka. Those speakerphone calls happened at least 20 times, according to Archer’s testimony.

Doctors are free to prescribe ivermectin to treat COVID-19, a lawyer representing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said this week. "FDA explicitly recognizes that doctors do have the authority to prescribe ivermectin to treat COVID," Ashley Cheung Honold, a Department of Justice lawyer representing the FDA, said during oral arguments on Aug. 8 in the U.S. Court of Appeals (snip)"The fundamental issue in this case is straightforward. After the FDA approves the human drug for sale, does it then have the authority to interfere with how that drug is used within the doctor-patient relationship? The answer is no," Jared Kelson, representing the doctors, told the appeals court.

Video and photos posted on social media show the historic Maria Lanakila church, which was founded in 1846, apparently unscathed despite surrounding buildings and vegetation having been incinerated. The church is located in the town of Lahaina, which was largely wiped out by the fire with more than 1,700 buildings reported burned.

'From what we’ve learned, we believe the Lahaina fires could have been prevented had proper safety precautions been taken,' said Gerald Singleton, a lawyer involved with the potential legal action, to the New York Times.
