Michael Stephen Levinson for U.S. Senate, Florida 2018, then President of United
From fbi to BFI / Making It New
Michael Stephen Levinson Candidate for President
In one of the first republican debates, Rudy Giuliani remarked the 1976 Church Committee Reports gave away too much information, damaging law enforcement. Three decades later Rudy is still in love with J. Edgar’s FBI.
I’m the “nota,” candidate for president, the “none of the above” guy. It isn’t any wonder I’m leading the republican pack. Most folks don’t subscribe to phone taps, their telephones at any time a party line, the other party, Bush’s “professionals;” so the New Hampshire line has me, “nota guy, ” on top. In every state poll I’m closing in on the upper tier, as “not sure,” or “other.”
Originally congress formed the FBI, so we would have a federal agency with authority to chase bank robbers and prostitutes across state lines. But J. Edgar Hoover, the fierce bureaucrat, thirsted to be forever, a political power unto himself. The FBI Director violated our Constitution every day. Hoover saw his position the ‘Seat of Power,’ called it that, but I hold to the view the cross-dressing Edgarina was a stone hypocrite. His was the Seat of Talcum Powder. The bureaucratic framework on which J. Edgar Hoover molded FBI wrought 3000 murdered on September 11, 2001.
The 9/11 Commissioners castigated FBI, but would not lay blame on any one person for our horrible loss on that worst day in our history! They wrote FBI’s failure to perform was an “institutional” problem. Hoover fashioned the institution in his own image. The ghost of Hoover must pay!
Conclusions about FBI abuse, drawn by Senator Church’s Committee Report are quoted below. Visit www.cointel.org. See the exposures, detailed 30 years ago. Judge the tip of Hoover’s FB Ice Berg, melting down right here!
FBI was in charge of what they released to the Church Committee! Their counter intelligence operation did not cease, as Congress and the American people were led to believe. FBI merely changed labels, and stamped their files, Top Secret. Hoover’s unconstitutional rot that continues to this day will be given to the American people upon my election. Vote me, touché:
“The Committee finds that information has been collected and disseminated in order to serve the purely political interests of an intelligence agency or the administration, and to influence social policy and political action.”
“White House officials requested and obtained politically useful information from the FBI, including information on the activities of political opponents or critics. Personal information was not always requested, but was nevertheless collected and disseminated to administration officials. Neither the FBI nor the recipients differentiated in these cases between national security or law enforcement information and purely political intelligence.”
This was before bureaucratic blinds were placed to separate law enforcement from national security intelligence. Why internal rules, so agents in the field, posed to thwart the 9 / 11 terrorists were kept out of the loop?
“The FBI has assembled intelligence on its critics and on political figures it believed might influence public attitudes or Congressional support. The FBI has also used intelligence as a vehicle for covert efforts to influence social policy and political action.”
“The FBI’s interference with the democratic process was the natural consequence of attitudes within the Bureau toward social change, combined with a strong sense of duty to protect society -- from its own ‘wrong’ choices.”
Were FBI focused on the threat of actual terrorists in America, traitors–-instead of on folks they dislike, our towers would be standing, aglow, alive.
“The FBI saw itself as the guardian of the public order, and believed that it had a responsibility to counter threats to that order, using any means available. The FBI’s ability to gather information without effective restraints gave it enormous power. That power was inevitably attractive to politicians, who could use FBI information on opponents for their own advantage.”
“At the same time, the widespread -- and accurate -- belief in Congress and the administration that the Bureau had available to it, derogatory information on politicians and critics created what the late Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hale Boggs, called a ‘fear’ of the Bureau.”
“It has been widely believed among Members of Congress that the Bureau had information on each of them. The impact of that belief led Boggs to state: “Our apathy in this Congress, our silence in this House, our very fear of speaking out in other forums has watered the roots and hastened the growth of a vine of tyranny which is ensnaring that Constitution and Bill of Rights which we are each sworn to uphold. Our society can survive many challenges and many threats. It cannot survive a planned and programmed fear of its own government bureaus and agencies.”
Speaker Boggs died in a mysterious airplane crash, in Alaska, in advance of the opening scene in the action thriller, “Enemy of the State.” The freelance writer, Dan Casalaro, supposedly a Washington suicide, and Chandra Levy come to mind. Both were murdered, chilling events the “why” untold behind.
“In its efforts to ‘protect society,’ FBI engaged in activities that necessarily affected the processes by which American citizens make decisions. In doing so, it distorted and exaggerated facts, made use of the mass media, and attacked individual people it considered threats to the social order.”
“The essence of democracy is the belief that the people must be free to make decisions about matters of public policy. The FBI’s actions interfered with the democratic process; attitudes within the Bureau toward social change led to the belief that such intervention formed a part of its obligation to protect society. When a governmental agency clandestinely imposes its views of what is right upon the American people, then our democratic process is undermined.”
This ongoing undermining is the legacy of J. Edgar Hoover, fascist through and through. His name is embossed on the buildings. Hoover’s attitudes and his heavy-handed methods are still the benchmark on how FBI conducts its business. His photograph adorns every senior manager’s desk.
CIA / Central Intelligence Agency, also known as Cash In Advance shall be melded with FBI. Whether civil or criminal, domestic or foreign, evrything nthese two agencies do is under the same roof, using the same data base.
Upon my election, by Executive Order, the agency will be renamed the John P. O’Neill Bureau of Federal Investigations. J. Edgar Hoover’s name will be removed from exterior facings of all FBI buildings immediately, the first day.
The BFI will be prohibited, by executive order, from conducting name checks absent FISA Court orders, especially on families of kids who ‘question authority’ in classroom debates. Stipends paid out to more than 70,000 FBI ‘fellow travelers,’ for writing profiles on their work place associates will be suspended. All senior FBI managers, those chosen by Hoover’s chosen, shall receive an honorable, instant retirement from FBI service. Members of the press, and others, receiving FBI stipend will be invited to join the President’s False Witness Protection Program, and given spy jobs overseas.
John P. O’Neill was an American patriot who went to Yemen, hot on the trail of Osama bin Laden, after an Al Qaeda cell attacked the U.S.S. Cole. FBI managers in Washington lifted O’Neill’s passport and pulled him off the case. They pushed him out of the bureau soon after. His creativity and dedication out-classed the bureau-critters running FBI in Hoover’s image. John P. O’Neill died on September 11, inside the south tower, trying to save lives.
All BFI agents will view the movies about John P. O’Neill’s life, to understand this patriotic giant. His loose flung style shall become their benchmark. Name is your aim. By changing the name from FBI to BFI we change its aim.
Reconfigured to focus on Federal Investigations, BFI won’t fail at its mission. Hoover’s policies, his treachery, his attention to staving FBI’s position and power, let 9 / 11 happen. Bin Laden was not a mystery! I am a candidate for U.S. president. This is my agency reform proposal, to be enacted upon my election! We owe this much, more, to those who died on September 11.
Hoover feared creative intelligences. He despised Jews and poets. I qualify. I’m overqualified. We cannot deep end on Hoover’s men. They see me, a man with words for all mankind, an enemy of their status quo! The agent who stood in my living room and sneered, “Do you hear voices,” was quoting Hoover’s FBI profile suggesting I am a self-imagined mini-Moses demagogic prophet who saw a giant cow across the sky in 1969 and talked to G-d; who should have been hustled away and locked up then. Words to that effect.
That’s what you get when you compose a Television Scripture, vehicle for world peace to be performed worldwide, on television for all the world’s peoples to enjoy at once. Hoover’s losers have done all they could, all they can to marginalize this poet, kiln the peace plan. Unless I renounce my soul, even then, FBI will not cease until Iamb silenced, prophesies dashed!
The fascist in the newsroom, trashing this essay, smokes the memory of all those people who died on 9 / 11, confusing reality, terror isms’ speculation. Fascists do not subscribe to Freedom of the Press. Editors must realize we are together staked, this candidate, the 4th Estate, and the safety of our nation. Pat Tillman opposed the war in Iraq. He took three between the eyes from thirty feet. People won’t abet campaign smoky mirrors this time out.
Thanks to the no-fault judgments of George Bush, Al Qaeda is rejuvenated! From Afghanistan heroin sales bin Laden has millions to sponsor terrorists. Bush, tapping our speech, has made us unsafe. Until I am sworn into office, to uphold our constitution, we have our eyes, our ears, our good common sense for reliance, ourselves to protect from the sum of their fears.
