Donald Trump’s presidency has quite clearly driven much of the American population insane. Yesterday we ran a story about the rapidly growing Treason Industry; today let’s consider the more extreme case of former CIA official Michael Scheuer, who on July 14 all but called upon Trump supporters to prepare to carry out the mass execution of the president’s opponents.
Scheuer served in the CIA for 22 years and headed the bin Laden unit at the Counterterrorist Center from 1996 to 1999. Five years later he resigned from the agency, apparently under duress.
Scheuer became known for having authored, anonymously initially, Imperial Hubris: Why the West is Losing the War on Terror. In that 2004 book he proposed, quite rationally, that Muslim animosity towards the United States wasn’t due to “what we are and think, rather than what we do” — namely a foreign policy of blanket support for Israel and Arab dictators, and periodic invasion of Islamic countries. He was always — how shall I put this? — a bit eccentric, but his positions could be interesting and I interviewed him from time to time.
I haven’t kept up with Scheuer for many years but his current views are far beyond eccentric. In a July 14 blog post, “A republican citizenry’s greatest, last-resort duty is to kill those seeking to impose tyranny,” he wrote:
This week saw a significant and quickening advance toward the moment when those millions of well-armed citizens who voted for Trump, and who have been abused or wounded by Democrats, their Antifa-thugs, and their thug-civil servants for exercising their franchise to elect Trump, cannot be, in good conscience, patient for much longer.
Fortunately, they have in hand a long and very precise list of the names and photographs of those who hate and threaten them, their families, their way-of-life, their liberty, their livelihoods and their republic. No self-respecting and determined-to-remain-independent citizenry can let themselves forever be held hostage by thug-civil-servants like Strzok, Comey, McCabe, Page, and Rosenstein; worshipers of tyranny, like the Democratic members of Congress, the Clintons, the FBI, and the Obamas; apparent traitors like Brennan, Hayden, and Clapper; all of the mainstream media; and the tens of thousands of government-admitted-and-protected, violent, criminal, and illegal immigrants.
American patriots have so far, praise God, been remarkably disciplined in not responding to tyranny and violence with violence. For now they must remain so, armed but steady. But the time for such patience is fast slipping away; indeed, that patience is quickly becoming an obviously rank and self-destructive foolishness. If Trump does not act soon to erase the above noted tyranny and tyrants, the armed citizenry must step in and eliminate them.
It is, of course, far better if Trump does so, and I pray and believe he will. That said, the sheer, nay, utter joy and satisfaction to be derived from beholding great piles of dead U.S.-citizen tyrants is not one that will be missed if Trump does not soon do the necessary to save the republic.
His remarks raise a number of questions:
Was Scheuer always this nuts, or is this a recent development? How did he rise to such a powerful position within the agency? What sort of vetting system does the CIA have to weed out people like this and how many others slip through the cracks?
In 2014, Scheuer reportedly married Alfreda Bikowski, the CIA’s “Queen of Torture,” who previously worked for him and who became one of the agency’s top officials. Are they still married? Does she still work at the agency?
Lastly, has anyone knocked on Scheuer’s bunker lately?
