So hopefully you've seen the news that the FBI was looking at traditional Catholic believers as the next front line against the US, but the story that Lincoln Brown wrote had a lot of details about how the FBI is operating today:

According to Hill, agents at the Boston field office were pressured to open criminal cases against people who had done nothing wrong. Originally, agents were told to open cases against seven people who raised red flags during a sweep of records from the Bank of America. Then, the scope increased to include people who had merely taken a bus to the Trump rally. Hill said that the act of getting on a bus was not enough to merit criminal probes, and the Boston office refused to conduct the investigations. This greatly displeased the Washington field office. The issue moved up the chain of command in an effort to paint J6 participants as domestic terrorists, but the Boston office held its ground.
Hill told the committee that the FBI analyzed bank records without evidence of any crimes with the intent to discover who went to Washington around the time of the incident and to look for any records that might indicate gun ownership. Hill said that the banks voluntarily offered up the data on the people under investigation.

I found the following wording interesting, though: 

As this information comes to light, National Review reportsthat an internal memo was issued at the FBI’s Richmond field office in January. This time the cause for concern was radical traditionalist Catholic ideology, which “almost certainly presents new mitigation opportunities.”

"Mitigation opportunities"? That's written as if the poor guys are bored out of their minds and they need to find work for themselves. While they could have more work than they can shake a stick at investigating the shenanigans in the federal government and little things like Chinese infiltration, they want to focus on making Catholics shake in their boots. 

These people pretty much all need to be fired.

Sign of Hope: Mayor, Entire Town Council Flip to GOP in New Jersey Township

Sign of hope, or hopelessly opportunistic? It's VIP, so to read it you'll need to go look it up on the Internet Archive. No time this morning to do so...Time to actually do, you know, that work thing.

I'm old enough to remember when J. Edgar Hoover preferred to hire Catholics and Mormons because of their sterling reputation for moral rectitude.

Within the FBI hiring database, I have no doubt that there is a filter on anyone who has certain keywords. The question then becomes, how long is the list?

Heh. That's chuckle worthy.

Chinese astronauts complete first spacewalk outside Tiangong space station

I wonder if they left a bunch of takeout menus outside the door of the ISS.

Where do you start with that? "Restorative justice?" If anything this heinous ever happens to me, I want vengeance.
