“You can judge an audience by how much bullshit they accept from the podium. By that standard, the World Economic Forum attendees in Davos, Switzerland last week were either depraved or craven. Why else would FBI chief Christopher Wray not get hooted down for portraying his agency as ‘good guys?’ Why was the FBI boss even making an appearance at a conference chockful of political weasels, billionaires, and depraved activists like former Vice President Al Gore? Actually, Wray was part of a panel on national security that included luminaries such as Ukrainian Vice-Prime Minister Yulia Svyrydenko, who could have offered insights from her government’s perpetual failed war against pervasive corruption. Wray boasted that ‘the level of collaboration between the private sector and the government, especially the FBI has, I think, made significant strides.’ A month before Wray’s appearance, Americans learned that ‘collaboration’ meant the FBI massively censoring Twitter in recent years.” (01/24/23)
