Today’s blacklisted American: The FBI’s purge of conservatives forces one agent to sue

Chris Wray, head of the FBI, the Democratic Party's Gestapo

They’re coming for you next: The effort of the FBI’s management, led by FBI director Christopher Wray, to purge all conservative agents from the agency by using false charges of treason in connection to the January 6, 2021 protests has forced one agent to sue.

Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a lawsuit on behalf of FBI analyst Marcus Allen in the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina against FBI Director Christopher Wray for violating Allen’s constitutional rights by falsely accusing him of holding “conspiratorial views,” stripping his security clearance, and suspending him from duty without pay. The FBI revoked his security clearance because apparently the FBI believes that any views contrary to its own regarding what occurred on January 6 constitutes disloyalty to the United States.

You can read the full lawsuit complaint here [pdf].

The FBI suspended Allen in January 2022, claiming in a one page letter [pdf] that:

The Security Division has learned you have espoused conspiratorial views both orally and in writing and promoted unreliable information which indicates support for the events of January 6th. These allegations raise sufficient concerns about your allegiance to the United States and your judgment to warrant a suspension of your clearance pending further investigation.

In other words, the FBI was accusing Allen of being a traitor, but it did so without citing any evidence. As Allen’s complaint notes,

[Allen’s] allegiance is to the United States, as he has demonstrated during his years of exemplary military and law enforcement service to his country. [Allen] was not involved in the events of January 6 and did not support them in any material way. The FBI has made no allegation or offered any evidence to the contrary. [Allen] has expressed no view that could be reasonably interpreted as personally expressing support or sympathy for any unlawful activity that occurred on January 6.

The FBI has not identified any specific statements or actions supporting its contention that Plaintiff has done otherwise. [emphasis mine]

The suspension, with no pay, also required Allen to get FBI permission before obtaining outside employment, or lose his standing with the agency.

Since that suspension in January 2022, however, the FBI has done nothing to move his case forward. It has held no hearings, refused to respond to any inquiries by Allen or his lawyers, and has refused his requests to sell a “prayer journal” in order to earn money. As his complaint notes,

Plaintiff is a father of three young children and sole income-earner for his family. His family has exhausted its savings and currently lives off withdrawals from a retirement account.

This vicious and vindictive action by Wray and the FBI is simply part of an ongoing campaign [pdf] to purge the agency of conservatives so that it can more aggressively serve as a Gestapo for the Democratic Party, without fear of discovery. This purge is also an extension of a similar purge that took place in the military during the Obama administration.

At this moment that purge is succeeding, based on the partisan attacks against Republicans by the federal intelligence agencies in the past six years. These agencies have harassed Republicans repeatedly. They have performed illegal house searches, confiscated cell phones for no cause, spied on Trump and others, and filed false charges against them, all as part of acting as the Democratic Party’s goon squad.

By suspending Allen and men like him, Wray and the leftist agents under him have been free to act aggressively for Democrats with no fear of consequences, and they have done so. Nor is this lawsuit likely to change things much. At best, it will clear Allen’s name and get him back pay. I suspect he will never be able to recover his job, even if the court orders the FBI to reinstate him. This Democratic Party goon squad might put him back on the payroll, but it will also likely ostracize him so that he is unable to report on their illegal actions.

A government house-cleaning now near impossible
A government house-cleaning now near impossible

The only solution is a full house-cleaning in the executive branch, but the opportunity to do that was from 2017 to 2021, when Trump was president. He didn’t do it, and the likelihood of another Republican president willing to act aggressively has vanished. Even if one such person could get nominated, the Democrats now control the election process nationwide, and will do any underhanded and illegal thing they can think of to guarantee their victory.

There remains one way — unlikely as it is — to clean up the FBI and the other corrupt executive agencies, and it lies in the power of the purse. Come January the Republicans will control the House of Representatives, and will thus be in a position to slash the budgets of these agencies. If those agencies don’t have money, they won’t have any power to abuse. They will be gone.

Of course, this route requires a Republican Party willing to fight, and that is something the Republican Party has been unwilling to do for decades. Since the 1980s it has been quite willing to sell the Democrats the rope that the left has been using hang conservatives. Expect more of the same.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.


Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

  • McConnell and McCarthy are probably all in on this. Maybe, because the Federal Bureau of Intimidation has the dirt on them. I don’t believe Congress will do anything to stop them. The Left keeps pushing and pushing to get this country into a kinetic Civil War which they think they will win because they have F-15s and Nukes. Whatever happens, this Nation is toast.

    Reform in the Republican Party and any chance at winning future elections begins with new leadership at the RNC. Please visit and contact your state and local party chairs to fire Ronna McDaniel. The grassroots must take back the GOP and get officials elected at all levels that will follow the will of the people.

    Yes, zero out the budget for the entire FBI! Once this happens, all the other federal agencies will realize their budgets can also be zeroed out, so perhaps they will shape up & stop the nonsense.

    Sundance at the Conservative Treehouse thinks after 9/11 congress loosened restrictions on America’s intelligence agencies which they used to spy on the American people. Barack Obama and Eric Holder redirected this to spying on their political enemies. He also thinks our intelligence agencies run social media platforms which explains how such costly systems can operate “free”. This is what this article is based on:

    “Elon Musk Perplexed as Twitter Begins Widespread Suspensions of Accounts Critical of U.S. Funding for Ukraine and Zelenskyy Grift”
    “Either Elon Musk really doesn’t know who is operating his platform, or this is a very public exhibition of Mr Musk pretending not to know. You decide.”

    Three paragraphs from the article:

    “The FBI was fully aware of the Boston Marathon bombers, the Tsarnaev brothers, before they executed their plot. The FBI took no action. The FBI knew about the San Bernardino terrorists, specifically Tasfeen Malik, and were monitoring her phone calls and communications before her and Syed Farook executed their attack killing 14 people and leaving 22 others seriously injured. The FBI took no action. The FBI knew Colorado grocery store shooter Ahmad Alissa before he executed his attack. The FBI took no action.

    The FBI knew in advance of the Pulse Nightclub shooter (Omar Mateen) and were tipped off by the local sheriff. The FBI knew in advance of the San Bernardino Terrorists (Tashfeen Malik). The FBI knew in advance of the Boston Marathon Bombers (the Tsarnaev brothers) tipped off by Russians. The FBI knew in advance of the Parkland High School shooter (Nikolas Cruz). The FBI knew in advance of the Fort Hood shooter (Nidal Hasan), and the FBI knew in advance of Colorado grocery store shooter Ahmad al-Aliwi Alissa. The FBI took no action.

    ♦ My point is this…
    The FBI is a U.S. version of the Russian “State Police”; and the FBI is deployed -almost exclusively- to attack domestic enemies of those who control government, while they protect the interests of the U.S. Fourth Branch of Government. That is the clear and accurate domestic prism to contextualize their perceived mission: “domestic violent extremists pose the greatest threat” to their objective.”

    Progressive California empties their jails of dangerous criminals……THEN.

    “California County Prohibits Landlords from Conducting Criminal Background Checks on Applicants”

    Then the California “Woke” / “Progressive” / Liberal / Globalist / Leftists prohibits landlords (An offensive oppressive colonial white master term I am sure) from doing any background check on any potential renter to see who they are renting *THEIR* property to in the process of doing their due diligence and running THEIR business.

    They let these criminals all out of jail en masse as per their Leftist political agenda, and now the criminals are unable to find any rentals because they are criminals and that contributes to the homelessness and those living and crapping on the streets.

    You would prefer to not rent / live with a convicted child molester? A violent rapist? Or convicted murderer? Too *XXXXXX* bad!

    Soon landlords or any citizen in America will have no rights whatsoever.

    (And PS: Just make sure you keep paying your taxes.)

    Our politicians in the many states and in Washington DC are in the process of bankrupting and selling the country out and taking it over. Both Left and Right are in the process of relieving all private citizens of most or all of their Rights and managing them, they have flipped the intent of the Constitution.

    But that is their nature, they cannot help themselves. You have to help them and yourself by firing most of them.

    How do you feel about that.

    If the House of Representatives fails to remove the budget from the FBI and CIA to serve as an example to the rest of the executive branch of what can happen when the deep state runs amok, there are only two remaining paths for the United States to follow:
    1. The current path, which is a descent into leftist tyranny, following the well-worn examples of other countries in this hemisphere such as Venezuela and Argentina, with perhaps a civil war thrown in for good measure; or
    2. The (I hope peaceful) dissolution of the Union into its constituent states, starting with Texas, and with the red states of the South quickly following.
    I am hoping for #2, which will allow people to choose the form of government which they believe best suits their preferences, and does away with the non-responsive federal bureaucracy.

    Mitch, Nancy, Chuck, Lyndsey, Mitt, Ma Barker and her ex-president Jeffery Epstein best friend husband, John Kerry, the “Kenyan” most all of you old wrinkled up, boozed up, drugged up, now very, very rich, now very, very elite boomers and older in the permanent government club you have destroyed OUR country with your political uniparty perversion, corruption and abuse of power.

    You have all in effect sold us all out to a Leftist dominated Democrat agenda. You know who you are. We know who you are, party affiliation aside, you are all the same. YOU SUCK!

    You and those of your generation and those in the permanent government club and their proxy operatives who take care of “necessary” business. You killed Kennedy, you probably killed his brother. Not that I was so enamored with either of them, you double cross the wrong people within the government club and / or the men who operate in the olive oiled streets, and their agendas and “Things” can happen. They take care of business.

    You have promoted endless war, you allowed three buildings to be taken down in one day (I’m being kind), you freely spend trillions of other people’s money without concern, you are all mostly owned or are aligned with or are compromised by the Communist Chinese international machine and / or the Globalists. You seek to permanently rule over OUR country through perverted, corrupted and compromised elections. Need I go on?

    I could go on, but you get the point. You all are the worst and one way or another you need to go. You represent the worst that the Founders were attempting to protect the people and the country from.

    You need to retire, OR? How about taking a nice long group around the world cruise on the S.S. George Soros to celebrate your successes? Give George a nice white uniform and a captain’s hat and let him steer the boat. What are you waiting for? Go and enjoy yourself. And please don’t forget to get your Covid19 mRNA booster shots before you board the ship, get a bunch of them just in case. First stop? Bejing!

    Most all of you in leadership have got to go! You are purposefully bankrupting, destabilizing and literally killing us! And those clearly appear to be the goals.

    And who comes after you? Will they be just as bad? Maybe, in time probably, that is the nature of such things. But they will also have to be dealt with in time. Your performance today however regarding the fiduciary trust and political power that you have been entrusted with has been wasted on America and most of you are frauds, criminals and spineless traitors IMO.

    And who threatens it all being revealed and stopped and or reversed? Just one man who you have without doubt used every criminal, un and anti-Constitutional conspiratorial measure with whomever you could enlist in the corrupt media and corrupt multinational corporate world you could possibly fashion. Just one man who you desperately want and now need to jail and ban from ever again running for and holding office again. Now that says it all, now we know who you fear the most. And so, these corrupted criminal abusers of their political fiduciary trust must be denied their desperate wish.

    And how much does truth cost in America today? $44 billion dollars. And so, we can expect one other man to be added to your hit list. The first thing that the Constitution structures is political warfare, and that is exactly what we see before us, ruthless warfare. And we understand that there are no rules in such things and that it is the only way.

    You have not disappointed, you are the Founders worst nightmares. Merry Christmas.

    You say “conservative”. I do not think this word means what you think it means.

  • Max

    The continuing resolution fully funds everything for the “left” long after they give up power… the conservatives who now hold the purse strings, that were elected to stop this… They can do nothing. By the time the money runs out it’ll be too late.

    Ray Epps J6 Committee Testimony Released: Admitted “I Was in the Front … I Also Orchestrated It” – Is Still a Free Man and Was Ignored in Final Report

    Crazy, right? Maybe he is related to Nacy Pelosi in some way, shape or form and he gets a pass?

    This man, Ray Epps, actively instigated the riot in Washington D.C., is recorded telling others that they had to “Enter the Capital building” before and on Jan. 6th, 2020. And the FBI nor the DOJ has any interest in him? AND he has not been in jail for one minute, let alone two years?

    An arm’s length Political Realm proxy operative setting up a false flag in Washington D.C. in order to dirty up the opposition (Trump: R) in order to retain and acquire political power? Trump wanted enhanced security on Jan. 6th, documented; the Democrats run by Nancy Pelosi in charge of Capital Hill security went out of their way NOT to have enhanced security.

    (Trump represented the highest existential threat to the permanent now clearly perverted and corrupt anti Constitution government dominated by the Liberal, radical Leftist Media anti America controlled Democrat party.

    Love him or hate him to his core, President D.J Trump has served a very valuable purpose in American politics.)

    Looks like a duck to me, but an undetectable duck to the FBI and the other elite law enforcement agencies in our government (D)?

    Are you paying attention yet? Can you figure out what’s going on yet?

    We are not playing marbles here, this is hard ball, and it’s for all the marbles. And you will never get your marbles back if you are on the losing end of this game.

    Happy New Year?

    That is Jan 6th, 2021

  • Unfortunately, there is little that can be done by using the power of the purse – they simply have to “regretfully” let the uncorrupted agents and staff go, and move their minions around to vacated places.
    Nuke ’em (euphemistically, of course). Completely SHUT THEM DOWN.
    Start new agencies, ruthlessly vetted to keep the weasels out. Those agencies should be MINIMAL – tech support for state/local police ONLY.
    And, use the same methods of eliminating the traitors – suspend them without pay, force them to get permission for ANY paid activity, and forbid them to discuss any aspect of the cases with ANY media. Attorneys for those traitors to be held to the same standards – i.e., no leaking.
