Americans increasingly see FBI as ‘Biden’s Gestapo’ – poll

Samizdat | August 20, 2022

A majority of respondents in a new survey have said they view the FBI as President Joe Biden‘s “personal Gestapo,” reflecting increasingly polarized views about the federal policing agency amid an investigation into the former commander in chief.

A Rasmussen poll published on Thursday showed major divisions in Americans’ attitudes toward the FBI, with 44% of respondents stating a recent raid on Trump’s Florida home made them lose some trust in the bureau. However, a significant 29% said the move only increased their confidence in the FBI, while 23% said it made no difference.

Asked about previous comments by former Trump adviser Roger Stone – who said “politicized thugs at the top of the FBI” are using the agency as “Joe Biden‘s personal Gestapo” – a majority (53%) of those polled agreed, including 34% who concurred “strongly.” That figure is up from 46% last December, though the more recent survey still found 36% disagree with Stone’s characterization. The results were split along party lines, with 76% of Republican and 37% Democrat respondents agreeing with the “Gestapo” claim.

According to officials and an unsealed property receipt, the federal raid on Trump’s Florida home on August 8 was centered on a probe into classified documents allegedly taken from the White House – some of them said to be top-secret and even potentially related to nuclear weapons – with the bureau hoping to recover 11 different sets of material from the residence. It remains unclear what was found in the search, however, and unnamed sources cited by NBC recently said agents will need time to sift through the seized files.

Trump, for his part, has accused the FBI of a politicized raid, and claimed the agency “stole” his passports and privileged legal documents “which they knowingly should not have taken,” although the passports had since been returned. The former president’s lawyers were not permitted to observe the search of his property, and said FBI agents ordered them to shut off security cameras while it was conducted.

  1. Hmmm–I’ll stay tuned on this one. The FBI, domestic, (…JEHoover) and CIA, abroad, have always been rogues, IMO. Untrammelled power, unlimited budgets, an “enemy(ies)” always lurking, arrogance, and — yes — political influence, always lead to suspicious/deleterious/dangerous activity. I sure don’t like Biden-Harris-Pelosi and their regime ilk, but I dislike the thought of a Trump horror-movie rerun even more…Ralph Nader, anyone? better: outright revolution, anyone? I’m ready for big-time change…but in fractured, failed America, what would “change” bring?

  2. What if this involves the possibility of a Trump Executive Order implementing the Insurrection Act before he ‘left office’ and with the knowledge that an insurrection/coup/election steal had happened. The associated seized documents may establish the vast conspiracy to take down the US economy and politics while harming health and welfare of We, the People. If the enemies within have and are accomplishing the take-down of America, is this classified SECRET or public domain information of urgency to our emotional and physical survival? It might take about 10 days of Emergency Broadcast to convey to all of us the details necessitating temporary military control. Seems like we are approaching an optimum time for disclosure.

    • First of all, say I: purge gummint institutions, thinktanks, media et al of (mostly Jewish) neocons. They’ve been around since the 1970s or so, gaining power with the ilk of Richard Perle in the ’80s, entrenching themselves in all facets and sectors of the body politic…working the angles within their fervid/psychotic designs and machinations, drawing in and creating puppets of such as Dubya (the ultimate-false-flag 9-11, Afghanistan, Iraq…), Obama, Trump (his “dealing” dalliance with ZioSheldon Adelson stands out via Jerusalem, the Golan, the Abraham Accords [sic] aimed at putting Zionist Jews/Dispensationalist ‘Christians’, Arab oligarchs and riffraff egomaniacs like Trump in the same bed for the purpose of genocide of the Palestinians-cum-uninhibited ‘full-spectrum global domination’), Biden/Pelosi (Dem-duopoly entrenchment of Trump’s ad hoc/wheeling-dealing foreign policy [sic] et al).

      BUT don’t let the neolibs — Killary, Samantha Power, Condi Rice, Pelosi et al — simply “fill the void” and continue the “US Exceptionalist” beat from their own warped perspective. I don’t know, obviously, how to navigate “We, the People”‘s way through this entangling thicket, but navigate, and prevail we must…toward a kinder, gentler, humbler, non-MIC/non-Zionist America “loving our neighbors as we love ourselves”….

      Sh*t: We, the People are in a pickle, and most of us — including I — don’t even know it or how to extricate ourselves from the brine before it chokes and drowns us….

      • It’s as simple as defunding the FBI, Homeland Security and TSA for good measure also.

        • I don’t think it’s that “simple,” but I take your point…CIA also? Chop the Pentagon/security/intel behemoth/monolith to the bare bones consistent with the constitutional mandate of “providing for the common defense”?

          • By the way, has there been ANY forensic investigation into where the Trillions of dollars went from the Pentagon, which was discovered one day before “9/11” happened in NYC?
            Or, has it just been casually written off?
            It never seems to get mentioned these days…….

            • Brian, as I recall those days, SECDEF Rumsfeld — to my amazement — admitted that the DoD was “incapable of audit” because at least $1.2 Trillion could not be traced…then came “9/11”, and the Zionists/neocons haven’t missed any opportunity to exploit every opportunity to pursue their enterprise of full-spectrum dominance and control–worldwide. I guess I’d have to agree that “it [surely multi-trillion$ by now, 20 years later] has just been casually written off.”

              • “has been casually written off”…..”If you’re going to tell a lie, make it a big one”….And the American people just accept that???
                There must be Bank Statements available, at the very least. A Bank should be able to provide details of Cheques. and payees……. “Surely they can’t be serious”?
