Joe Biden’s FBI Raid
Crossed the Rubicon

In raiding Donald Trump’s Florida home at Mar-a-Lago on Monday, the Biden Administration has just crossed the Rubicon with an irresponsible and irrevocable decision. Siccing the state police on the former president is only the latest attempt by the radicals on Biden’s team to prevent the great disrupter from returning to the White House. 

The extremists who now control the Democrats have spilled the beans. In two ways, at least, Donald Trump is an impediment to their goal of disassembling the republic and replacing it with collectivism. He is a Washington, D.C. and political outsider who wants to dismantle the extraconstitutional power structure that enriches and empowers the uni-party, the deep state, the “swamp,” the status quo. He also symbolizes the return to a more egalitarian, capitalist interpretation of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence that recognizes the value of every human being.

If you think it isn’t about preventing Trump from running and winning the election in 2024, you have been sleeping.

Fanatic Democratic Party lawyer Marc Elias stated the obvious rationale driving the politically motivated attacks on Trump: obtaining a conviction would prevent Trump from ever holding office again, and even if a crime couldn’t be proven, mounting a criminal defense in the midst of a presidential election would be a “blockbuster” in American politics.

The abusive raid by the FBI is unprecedented in American history. Somehow, the FBI was able to marshal its resources to raid Mar-a-Lago and seize 15 boxes that were packed by Trump’s staff before leaving the White House. Boxes containing everything from newspaper clippings to memorabilia are now in the FBI’s hands.

The documents—if there are documents—that the FBI reportedly sought were in no imminent danger of being destroyed. The FBI simply wanted to demonstrate its power against the former president to make all Americans cower.

In the meantime, the FBI has done virtually nothing with the Hunter Biden laptop. The bureau has not pursued Jeffrey Epstein’s associates. And FBI officials looked the other way when Hillary Clinton broke numerous laws mishandling classified documents, but they were happy to help run surveillance on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

It is obvious that this is an abuse of power against an important political opponent. For 250 years, America has avoided such corruption, but it is now endemic in our government departments and agencies. 

Donald Trump dominates the Left. Trump is so popular that he is the single most potent political power in the country today. And his followers continue to push back against pervasive left-wing extremism. Not only did Trump interrupt the Left’s steady march to remake America, but he also taunted the purveyors of that destructive dogma. And he inspired Americans who had been the traditional Democrat base to stand up against the new orthodoxy of extremism as well.

For the Communists, Marxists, neofascists, radical environmentalists, and fanatics, Donald Trump is the biggest enemy on the planet.

So, the crazies hate Trump and any of those who support him and the America First Agenda.

This week we see the continued weaponization of the federal government against the American people.

Trump continues to be pursued by the unethical Attorney General Merrick Garland and his squad. January 6 prisoners continue to be held in solitary confinement and unconstitutionally in pretrial detention. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas directs his officers to ignore enforcing the law. How can freedom exist when the rule of law is gone—killed by our own government?

The weaponization of government bureaucracy will continue when the ironically named “Inflation Reduction Act” is passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and signed into law. While the bill is replete with regulations that will further strangle our economic freedoms, the Democrats want to turn more than 87,000 new IRS personnel against their fellow Americans. It is not hard to see that there will be attacks by these new agents of the state against political opponents of the Biden regime–the most extreme administration in American history.

For those paying attention, we are seeing the systematic dismantling of the great American experiment in self-governance. Every institution is dominated by anti-American zealots eager to arrogate power to the national government in order to bring about, through an institutional revolution, a regime change. The hoped-for world order is one based on Marxist principles, coupled with neofascist dogma, and shrouded in post-Westphalian globalism, with a portion of the religiously dogmatic radical environmentalism added to the recipe.

And Biden has his police force, like former East Germany’s Stasi, the former Soviet Union’s KGB, and like every tyrannical government in history.

Biden’s police state and the Goebbels-like propaganda of the media have been investigating and chasing Trump for years with no success. Invading his home is like crossing the Rubicon, not just for Biden and the Left’s obsession with Trump, but for the future of American freedom as well. Is there any turning back now?
