Schindler: J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI Wouldn’t Have Punted EmailGate

On loan from Madame Tussauds Washington, DC is this likeness in wax of former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, that has real hair and must be washed using only Paul Mitchell hair products, is part of the Newseum's first changing exhibition, "G-Men and Journalists" on view June 17, 2008 in Washington, DC. The exhibit which which covers the top news stories of the FBI's first century explores the role of the media in shaping the bureau's image and the sometimes cooperative, sometimes combative relationship between the press and the FBI.

Unaccountable national secret police are bad.

Ask Vicki Weaver.

Or the poor folks at Waco.

Secret police used as tools to achieve political cover-ups are much worse.

Anyone who thinks that you are living in anything other than a crumbling banana republic is dangerously delusional.


Plan – and act – accordingly.

Don’t be a freaking Greenwood.

  1. At this point, there have been NO resignations (at least made public) from the FBI over this event, this most disgraceful event. One may infer from this pattern that the employees/agents/administration at the FBI is copacetic with what went down, or at least not so moved as to disassociate themselves from it.

    What this communicates to the American people is an utterly unavoidable truth.

    Well, it’s hard to punt anything when you’re wearing high heels. (Or so I’ve been told.)

    JEH’s FBI was no different from what’s going on today. He was just better at hiding it.

  4. Well, did you reach Lavoy Finicum for comment, at least?

  5. I commented to a few in our very small community (that I actually trust), “ does it feel to be first hand witness to the end of a country”? And silly me, I thought the late 60’s and early 70’s were rocken’ times – I think (and this is just me pounding on a key board) that as others have mentioned, better cowboy up cuz (really) tough times are a comin’. We’re on our own now ………………….

    We all know that voting doesn’t work for us. Are we waiting for a sign from above? God has a sick sense of humor. Or maybe the bible is just Jewish mythology. Let’s kick it into high gear, boys and girls.

    J. Edna was a political figure, too. He’d have played ball, he just would have leveraged it to expand his own personal power and that of his Bureau.

  8. Hoover would have kept their secrets and leveraged them to his advantage. Nothing is different today. The toadies who work there know this and continue their work diligently.

    Don’t marry a nut job selling VHS tapes on sawed off shotguns. Waco? Don’t follow an Edomite claiming to be Jesus.

    FBI: Faking Bogus “Investigations.”

    Nah. He’ use it to blackmail her

  12. Hoover liked power. He was director of the FBI (and it’s predecessor) for nearly 50 years. He had all the dirt on all the powerful people. He was arguably more powerful (domestically) than the last few Presidents he “served”. He would have gladly taken down a candidate to scare the next one.

      “Would have gladly” – does that mean you don’t believe he didn’t? They saw him in a dress and heels, for God’s sake…

  13. What does todays G-Man wear?
    Tidy whites or a leather thong goes well with heels. Fishnets are still in vogue. Rouge is out.
    The use of Bondo is recommended.
    The French Maid,a timeless classic, is still a hit with the agent on the street.
    The newest rage at headquarters is traditional tastefull garb…much like the Janet Reno style or the Hillary pear shaped, pant-suit. The stove pipe leg design appeals to cankle lovers from coast to coast.
    J Edgar. You can’t make this shit up!

    what’s the dig at Lee Greenwood about?
