"Yesterday I received the following email from a fellow Bureau [FBI] retiree... 'I believe that the Republican/GOP establishment has decided on DeSantis as a means of protecting the elite in DC'"
Former FBI agent Mark Mauck recieved an email that "expressed views regarding the Bureau [that] are fairly typical for something like a majority of retired agents—nostalgia for what the Bureau once was, or seemed to be, and fear for the future":
First, thank you for your ongoing insightful commentary. Your thoughts have significant value and I appreciate your careful analysis.
Second, as I mentioned when I first emailed you, the Bureau continues to descend into greater depths of politicization. I was talking with several other retired agents I worked with and the first question that comes up is whether the Bureau can recover from all of this? What is more telling is the second or follow on question, which is should the Bureau recover? I think the answer to the first question would necessitate an immediate and complete overhaul and essentially the dismissal of everyone above the GS14 level, with significant oversight including real, honest to God prosecutions and jail time where former agents actually turn big rocks into little rocks. This of course says nothing about the remainder of the intelligence community. I am not sure it can be accomplished. I am still undecided about the answer to the second question. That said, I believe that all of the other Republican "also rans" such as DeSantis are woefully unprepared to attack this problem. I don't think they have a clue to the depths of corruption that they face, nor do they fully comprehend that this is a struggle for the very nature of our Republic. I believe that the Republican/GOP establishment has decided on DeSantis as a means of protecting the elite in DC.
Third, as I previously mentioned, I volunteer in local conservative politics in [Red State]. I can tell you that from my neck of the woods, there is a civil war going on in the GOP and it will likely manifest itself in the Trump nomination process. The folks who are conservative who have faithfully voted R because they have been cajoled by the Republican elite, are pretty much fed up with the GOP both at the national level and state level. I suspect that this will manifest itself in large numbers of traditional Republican voters not voting in 2024 if Trump isn't on the ticket and either the destruction of the GOP as we know (See Senator Josh Hawley's comments about the death of the old GOP) and rebirth of a new party out of the ashes of the old. If the GOP elite are successful at remaining in control of the party, you will see a significant defection among the grassroots faithful. Folks are actively questioning just exactly what the GOP does for them in various issues [at the state level] and they are finding that the juice isn't worth the squeeze.
Thanks for your attention to all of this. I wish you and your family a fabulous Thanksgiving. I am now going back to prepping our meal for tomorrow. Take care,
Pray an Our Father now in reparation for the sins of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost - Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.
