FAST FIVE: Biden Plans Expansion Of Feds' Army Of Snitches In "Dollars For Collars" Program
The Biden administration may soon recruit an army of private snoops to conduct surveillance that would be illegal if done by federal agents.
DHS-funded Fusion Centers have attached the “extremist” tag to gun-rights activists, anti-immigration zealots, and individuals and groups “rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority”-even though many of the Founding Fathers shared the same creed.
Other FBI informants browbeat their targets into discussing bombing government buildings, providing sufficient verbal rope to hang them.
One purpose of relying on private informants is to assure that there are no federal fingerprints when people are coaxed or shoved into breaking the law.
But the FBI swayed the local sheriff's department to drop its investigation of Mateen because a “confidential informant” assured FBI agents that Mateen was not a terrorist and would not “go postal or anything like that.” The federal case against the killer's widow collapsed in 2018 after jurors belatedly learned that the killer's father, an Afghan immigrant, had been an FBI informant since 2005 and may have used his influence to assure that his son was not arrested prior to his killing spree.
