| "Three Days of the Condor" Is Only Steps Away From Being Real...
I had the honor of attending the premiere of Top Priority - the story of Julia Davis and her husband BJ Davis endure the full wrath of the federal government - simply because Julia did her job. Most folks who have not been a whistleblower or had to deal with government wrongdoing have a hard time accepting the concept of U.S. government wrongdoing against its own citizens - but it happened here in a severe case. Julia was targeted by the senior leadership of Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) simply for following official procedures given her by her leadership and notifying the DC Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) of a breach of security at our southwest border...for this act she was persecuted - she and her husband BJ charged with false felony charges - endured a raid on their residence which resulted in the death of Julia's father - and because of the government's desperation, federal officers likely had a role in the death of BJ and Julia's friend - Brittney Murphy...

Until it happens to you (and I'm speaking from experience here - I've been thru the grinder of the Federal Government machine) it is hard to believe officers who take the Oath of Office can behave in illegal and unconstitutional ways - but they do - and this documentary exposes their illegal acts - often in their own words...I honestly wonder how they sleep at night...

I HIGHLY recommend you see Top Priority when it hit general or limited release - it is not only shocking due to the facts, it is a well made movie that grabs the viewer (and - no - I am NOT just saying this because BJ and Julia are friends) - this is an outstanding movie - one that exceeds every other modern documentary I've seen...and indicates that we are only steps away from "Three Days of the Condor" - if they can do this to the Davis' there is nothing holding back these government officials, with the new federal authorities, to engage in the next step of such wrongdoing: targeting for death of citizens they deem 'dangerous'.

One last note - we should all be grateful for Julia and BJ - for having had the courage to endure the painful turn of events where the government of our nation not only turned its back on them - it did everything it could to destroy them - and still, they have been able to tell their story - to expose the wrongdoing of the federal bureaucratic for what it is...they are true patriots, and I am proud to call them friends.
