As if the regime’s war on Americans wasn’t already apparent by rampant inflation, rising gas prices, an open border, and a two-tiered system of justice, the FBI’s Monday raid on former President Donald Trump’s home Mar-a-Lago proves that the elites who control the federal government are not on the side of the American people.
Over and over and over, the FBI has proven it is a weapon to be used against the left’s political enemies. As a result, the country that once was a bastion of freedom of speech, rule of law, and free elections is dead and gone.
Trump even said so in his statement announcing the “unannounced” raid.
“It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections,” Trump said. “Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third World Countries.”
Only the most totalitarian regimes can bust down the door of a former president’s home and have the entire Democrat Party, the propaganda press, and those amplified most on Twitter cheering them on.
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” Trump said.
Unless, of course, you count that time the FBI sought to frame Trump for colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election. To do so, the FBI fabricated warrants so they could spy on Trump’s campaign and then lied about the coverup in federal court. This operation to take out Hillary Clinton’s biggest rival was also shamelessly supported, egged on, and promoted by the elitist class and its media counterparts.
True accountability for that hoax never came. The deceitful FBI is still clearly operating with the intent of hampering Trump’s political aspirations, the corrupt press still holds prizes for its false reporting about collusion, and the Democrats who officially control at least two branches of government are still using bureaucratic agencies to do their political dirty work.
What republic survives a government hellbent on destroying the people it is supposed to be of, by, and for? None of them. The FBI’s raid on Trump is part of a large, coordinated effort to subvert and silence half of the nation and to deprive them of their right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and self-governance.
The Biden administration is fostering and fomenting a bureaucracy that works not for the American people but against them. The recent actions of Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray have made that abundantly clear that concerned parents, pregnancy centers, Republican-nominated Supreme Court justices, families who lost their loved ones to deadly Covid-19 policies, and anyone who believes the 2020 election was not “the most secure in history” do not deserve justice in their eyes.
When the FBI raided Trump’s home, they weren’t just targeting the former president, the leader of the Republican party, and a likely future presidential candidate, they were waging an open war on the Americans and the ideals that Trump represents.
What used to be the land of the free and the home of the brave has turned into a crumbling nation that is governed by people who target their political enemies and funnel billions of dollars to siccing federal agents on average Americans.
This is not the America our founding fathers envisioned. As a matter of fact, it’s quite the opposite.
There is no equal justice under the law in the United States anymore. The FBI ransacking the former president’s home without explanation proves no one is safe from the tentacles of the corrupt bureaucracy. The power-hungry regime will stop at nothing to take revenge on its political enemies, even if that means angering half of the country.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pledged to “conduct immediate oversight” over the FBI’s political persecution, but hearings easily disregarded by an FBI head who is dead set on jetting off to his vacation in upstate New York instead of submitting to congressional oversight are simply not enough to save the country.
The preservation of our nation rests on whether the nefarious elites who control the regime will be prosecuted and imprisoned for their crimes against the constitutional republic.
For years now, the kingpins who run the Swamp have shown their true colors without consequence or any semblance of accountability. As a result, Americans have lost their right to criticize the administration online, have lost their businesses to rioters and thieves, have lost their jobs because they refused to get the jab, have lost their preferred president to an election marred by fraud and inconsistencies, and have lost the ability to defend themselves against the January 6 Committee and their illegitimate, partisan show trials.
Republicans like McCarthy can talk the talk on Twitter, but they have to decide if they are going to keep playing by the rules that power-hungry leftists constantly change to fit their agenda or end the game. The FBI’s deliberate raid on Trump is the biggest sign that it’s time to end the game.
If no one is punished, this will happen again. The fact that the FBI has already dredged up a reason to raid a former president’s home means it’s already happening again.
While Republicans tweet about how our precious republic has turned into a banana republic, their constituents sit at home, silenced by Big Tech, stranded by federal law enforcement, stripped of the confidence that the bureaucratic rot eating at the nation’s will ever be treated or trustable again.
The time for action was in 2016, the first time the FBI targeted Trump. Republicans should not make the mistake of ignoring the FBI’s persecution of everything and everyone they claim to represent again.
Simply put, liberty and justice for all is only possible if the FBI and every other corrupt government agency is completely gutted from head to toe.
