It’s all over the news. The FBI staged (correct word) a raid on Giuliani’s apartment, with a search warrant. The warrant had to be approved at the highest levels of the Justice Department. It was as fake as any of the FISA warrants sworn to by James Comey’s FBI during the Russia hoax. The ostensible crime: failing to register as a foreign lobbyist (which Giuliani never was). In violation of the warrant, the FBI agents refused to take Hunter Biden’s hard drive. So the person who actually violated (known) the FARA statutes is of no interest to the Justice Department. Giuliani. who worked to defend Trump in the Impeachment trial, claims to have had the government spying on him to access attorney-client exchanges in the Cloud, and thus already had all the information on his electronic devices, thus no need for the raid. Plus Giuliani had long since offered to provide all of the material sought in the warrant to the government.
The issue is Giuliani’s activities in Ukraine. Joe Biden famously bragged about interfering to stop an investigation into Burisma, where his son was on the board, using the leverage of US Foreign aid dollars. The Big Guy will protect his son and attack anyone who might provide compromising information against him or his son and further expose the international criminal scams run by the Bidens. He will use all the resources of the Justice Department to do so now that he controls the levers of power. However, this is one petard that might turn out to hoist Joe Biden: Acting under the color of law to protect criminals.
The US Department of Justice is a criminal enterprise.
James Jacobs, in his book, Mobsters, Unions, and Feds, observed that for the better part of the 20th Century, the US Federal government was under the de facto control of the Mob–through Mob control of Unions that were part of the Democratic machine. Of course, it was Giuliani who was most responsible for taking down the Mob and breaking that control in his time at the Justice Department under Reagan (kudos to Bobby Kennedy for trying to do so under his brother, both of whom lost their lives, if you believe Jack Anderson, over their betrayal of the Mob that had provided indispensable aid to their electoral success). So he is a marked man for 2 reasons: both for interfering with Union/Mob/Democrat control of the US government; 2) attempting to interfere with Biden’s criminal grifting during his time in power in the Obama administration. The Democrats have simply in-housed the Mob activities and now run a criminal organization called the Democratic Party, and have again gained control of the US Government. So Mafiosos still run the country. Merrick Garland appears to be naught but Joe’s Tom Hayden, Biden’s consigliere. While Joe is giving an address to Congress and the Nation (or he could have been in church–but not receiving communion?–at his niece’s baptism?), Garland is attempting to destroy Biden’s enemies. Took a page straight out of Michael Corleone’s strategy book, it would appear. Will we have to start calling Joe “The Godfather?” When asked about his pre-knowledge of the raid, he of course claimed total unawareness.
You’d think Giuliani’s humiliation in the attempt to litigate the 2020 election would suffice. Apparently not.
Looks like Biden is looking over his shoulder and trying to pre-empt a Trump comeback. In a similar fashion as the Russian hoax? That worked so well. In the Election of 2020 Joe was working hand in glove with the big Social Media companies, it is alleged, to suppress adverse news (including Hunter Biden’s lap-top story), to enable his campaign. No wonder he could campaign from his basement and win. Perhaps he feels like he needs a more sure approach to electoral success this time around–something on the order of a Castro level of electoral certainty and landslide? Leave nothing to chance and the voters, of course.
I breathlessly anticipate Andrew McCarthy’s explanation of why the Justice Department is fully justified in this raid and how Giuliani is one short step away from the Federal penitentiary (maybe he’ll be detained in Jeffrey Epstein’s old cell).
Again, the Dennis Miller caveat: That’s just my opinion. I could be wrong.Published in
