'Mississippi Burning' - A good movie that falls a little short

I was reading excerpts of Spike Lee’s critique of “Mississippi Burning,” which can be found easily online. Anyway, I had watched the movie recently, so here’s my take on the controversy: Though it’s a great, hard hitting movie, I was disappointed to learn that the FBI agents were completely fictionalized and have come to agree that, yes, it does falsely glorify the FBI, who had actually played a substantially negative role during the civil rights struggle, and against black people generally (especially with COINTELPRO). 67 more words

I will like to expound on the U.S. government-sanctioned attacks on the MOVE Organization within the larger context of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) campaign of harassment, murder, and imprisonment during the revolutionary 60s and 70s, and even today, in an effort to thwart the realization and actualization of Black Power and Black Liberation . 851 more words

USA Today: Time to Dethrone the FBI - James Bovard


The FBI-The story that keeps on giving.

In the late 1990s, the FBI Academy taught agents that subjects of investigations “have forfeited their right to the truth.” This doctrine helped fuel pervasive entrapment operations after 9/11. 143 more words

If the FBI Approaches You to Become an Informant


Federal agents approach you. Perhaps they just ask a couple offhand questions; perhaps they have a deal to propose. They might tell you they are trying to help you; they might tell you that you are in a lot of trouble and it will just get worse unless you cooperate with them; they might tell you that they need your help to prevent something terrible from happening. 1,558 more words

No support to James Comey or the FBI - Mortal Enemies of the US Working Class!

This week’s firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey by President Donald Trump has aroused the indignation of conservatives and liberals alike, who decry the Trump Administration’s alleged attempt at “politicization” of the FBI by interfering with the “work” of the agency as it investigated alleged collusion between members of the Trump for President campaign and the Russian Government of Vladimir Putin in order to “rig” the US Presidential election of 2016 in favor of Trump. 3,059 more words
