If you truly want to understand what the FBI is then read Curt Gentry’s biography: J. Edgar Hoover– The man and his secrets (1991). It turns out Hoover was a closet homosexual & cross-dresser. Of course he kept this secret, because he used precisely this kind of personal blackmail to manipulate nine US presidents (and anyone else necessary), to remain Director of the FBI (which he basically founded) for 48 years, until his death from heart failure in 1972.
The truth is J. Edgar Hoover’s heart was at least two sizes too small, and it shrank even further with each passing May Day. Hoover was a virulent anti-communist agitator, policemen, judge, & executioner (all-in-one) as head of a US Gestapo known as the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Originally it was the Bureau of Investigation (BI), and he was John Edgar Hoover, until the young Justice Department attorney heard of another John Edgar Hoover in the Washington DC area who frequented whorehouses. It was then that this young bureaucrat changed his signature to J. Edgar Hoover, and in 1924 was assigned the position as Director of the BI, which was later renamed the FBI in 1935 by Hoover. Little did US president Calvin Coolidge know at the time, that this would be an appointment for life, as the 29-year old Hoover already had compiled a vast catalog of files on thousands of American citizens.
Hoover was a central figure in the infamous Palmer Raids of 1919-20, a brutal round-out of “communists,” most of whom had no affiliation, much less participation in socialist agitation, which wasn’t/isn’t illegal by any US law. The public backlash was severe, as it cost Mitchell Palmer his chances at the US Presidency in 1920, which he coveted above all else. An ambitious J. Edgar Hoover had directed the operation from his lists of informants. He obtained information from illegal surveillance using wire-tapping, tailing, and early microphone bugging to gather the data which filled his vast & bulging files.
The infamous “Hoover Files,” were the most-tightly held secret within the FBI. They contained Hoover’s darkest & murkiest secrets on the most powerful people in Washington– and the world. These “Personal Files” were located in his faithful secretary’s office, and cross-organized by index cards.
Helen Gandy was J. Edgar Hoover’s secretary for 54 years (since 1918), whom he regarded as indispensable. She exercised great influence over the FBI– behind-the-scenes. She never married, and was always referred to as “Miss Gandy,” by Hoover. She remained faithful to him after his death, by removing many and destroying the rest of the Hoover Files.
She did this calmly & efficiently over two months as US politicians everywhere clamored Hoover’s second & third in command (Clyde Tolson & John Mohr) as to the location of these explosive secret documents. President Richard Nixon was among the many who were misled and lied to while Helen Gandy sorted through every single document in the Hoover Files.
A large chunk was sent to Clyde Tolson’s residence, and the rest evidentially shredded in secrecy at FBI headquarters. Tolson was Hoover’s long-time gay lover and second-in command at the FBI until the Director’s death. The contents of these secret files were enough to trigger an American Revolution, as Hoover was responsible for such crimes as:
1) Withholding evidence from a M-6 British agent that the US Naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was in the advanced stages of being targeted for a military attack by the Japanese fleet. He was given this intelligence in microdot form in August/September of 1941 by Duško Popov (photo below), and Hoover bungled it because he didn’t trust British double agents. Hoover suppressed this truth both during, and after World War II. The given reason (as always): “national security.”
2) Hoover was directly responsible for the assassinations of JFK, RFK, Malcolm X & Martin Luther King, Jr. All of these political leaders were hated by Hoover, and kept under constant illegal surveillance. Large files were kept on all of them in the FBI main offices, and in Hoover’s personal files. Black leaders were targeted (among other leftists) under Hoover’s secret & dirty COINTELPRO operation.
3) J. Edgar Hoover ignored & downplayed the parasitic & destructive activities of organized crime for decades, publicly insisting (as Director of the FBI) that there was no such thing as the mafia [!], when in fact he worked with mobsters behind the scenes to do FBI dirty work such as political assassinations.
There’s so much more, and honestly it gets really hard to read & handle all of it at certain points, because the abuse-of-power is so gross & unchecked; and because everyone is so corrupt and afraid to confront the one who knows everyone’s darkest secrets. Gentry’s authoritative biography is 800+ pages with its notes & index, which means its hardback form is really good for throwing, and it’s contents generate that inclination with explosive frequency. One of Hoover’s favorites quotes is, “There’s something addicting about a secret.” That’s J. Edgar Hoover in a nutshell: addictive, manipulative & abusive. The moral is, no one should ever be allowed to wield such power.
Since Hoover was the FBI to its core, what is this organization today? It’s still a Gestapo, with no accountability, and gross abuses-of-power. It’s probably still secretly run by creeper homosexuals (or the like), who get off on invading anyone’s privacy at will, knowing they are immune to prosecution or even detection. There are more blacks & women involved in this, which is considered “progress” by some. The FBI still acts & classifies everything it does in the name of “national security.” Organized crime is still allow to “do business.”
This is the FBI in 2018, and in the interests of the youth & working masses everywhere, it can’t be allowed to continue unchecked. There’s something creepy about knowing everyone’s secrets. Don’t you think?
Postscript (Film Review):
Who killed Tupac? According to Snoop Dogg (who knows): “The big guy next to him in the car… Suge Knight.” Knight had Tupac killed before he could part ways with Death Row Records. The supposed East coast vs. West coast rivalry was a narrative created by Suge Knight to cover for his murder of Tupac, to whom he owed $10 million in back royalties. This set up Biggie to be killed.
Ex-detective Russelle Poole. describes how L.A.P.D. conspired to cover up Suge Knight’s conspiracy to kill Tupac and Biggie, with Poole forced out of his position as an L.A.P.D. detective for independently pursuing the investigation. Russell Poole suspected ex-cop David Mack, and Amir Muhammad (AKA- Harry Billups) to have worked with Suge Knight to kill Biggie.
The FBI was on site, with complete surveillance during the Biggie murder, yet the lone assassin was allowed to drive up, and in gangland style fire five shots into the side of the car where Biggie was seated, and then drive off without being identified or pursued by any authorities on the scene. The only rational explanation for that is the Feds & police being in on the hit, ordered by Suge Knight. Both murders remain unsolved, and hundreds of youth were killed in the ensuing gang wars after these high-profile assassinations. It is no coincidence that it took a UK filmmaker (Nick Broomfield) to tell Americans the truth we don’t want to hear.
In the end it’s not a black thing, or a white thing, or a straight/gay thing, or even a man/woman thing. It’s a green thing. When you put a large enough pile of money in front of someone, they can justify anything. The corrupting power & influence of money can’t be reformed, which is the fundamental lesson of capitalism.
