With the controversy surrounding the choice of a new Speaker of the House of Representatives resolved, the American people must demand of their newly elected and installed congressional representatives the formation and active functioning of a 2023 version of the 1975 SELECT COMMITTEE TO STUDY GOVERNMENTAL OPERATIONS WITH RESPECT TO INTELLIGENCE ACTIVITIES OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE, more popularly known as the Church Committee, named after its chairman Senator Frank Church of Idaho. This is imperative and essential to the full and complete investigation of crucial questions surrounding government weaponizing, malfeasance, corruption, cronyism, misuse, and abuse of those three letter covert entities of the deep state such as the CIA, NSA, FBI, DEA, as well as the full panoply of the surveillance state regime intelligence community of the military-industrial complex comprised of pentagon profiteers, sub-contractors, the Big Tech/security state nexus. Such areas as intelligence community illegal and unlawful interface or collusion with the mainstream news media, social media platforms, the biomedical research and pharmaceutical industries, and other relevant and related subject areas the committee may discover of interest, focus and detailed investigation.
For those unfamiliar with the research and investigatory subject areas of the original “Church Committee,” here are their published Reports:
