In recent months, the American people have consumed a firehose of disclosures about the FBI.
From the raid on Mar-a-Lago to arrests at school board meetings, civil liberty violations are now standard procedure for the FBI. This is unprecedented, and it appears politically-motivated considering that focus and treatment by the FBI varies based on their target’s political ideology (see treatment of peaceful protesters).
Despite all these disclosures about a rogue government agency that desperately needs a course correction, we learn that the FBI is being rewarded (compensated?) for their misdeeds with a massive new building upgrade. From American Greatness:
“The federal government is proceeding with plans to build a new FBI headquarters complex twice the size of the Pentagon building. Riveted into the colossal new project are woke regulations to ensure that the FBI center will comply with diversity, equity, LGBTQ+, and climate change political goals. For years the FBI has sought to vacate its present headquarters, a brutalist concrete bunker on stilts and occupying two city blocks between the White House and the Capitol.”
For years, the FBI has wanted to vacate its current proximity to Executive and Legislative oversight? Why? The piece continues:
“Plans for the new FBI headquarters specify that it will be built on one of three sites in suburban Virginia and Maryland. Those sites are large parcels of 58, 61, and 80 acres. That means, at minimum, the new FBI headquarters complex would be twice the size of the Pentagon building. Covering about 29 acres plus a five-acre courtyard, the Pentagon, until recently, was the largest office building on earth.”
According to The Gateway Pundit this morning:
“The bureau is reportedly planning to build a new headquarters which will be twice the size of the Pentagon. This raises a few obvious questions. Why do they need such a massive building? Are they increasing the size of their ranks to fill it? Should the American people be concerned about this?”
All good questions.
As part of the Legislative Branch, answering those questions is your responsibility. Certainly Joe Biden’s Executive Branch isn’t going to police itself.
You must exercise all power available to you to stop the expansion of the FBI, immediately. Remember your oath.
