The FBI’s raid on former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate—ever so conveniently timed as the White House occupant’s approval numbers sink, the Swamp prepares to shovel a whopping $5.5 billion in foreign and military aid down the bottomless Ukrainian black hole and the American economy keels over like Biden on a bike—gives us a national teachable moment.
Armies of MAGA supporters who had never previously been engaged in politics are only now beginning to fathom the depths of corruption in the bowels of the (In)Justice Department. Cries of “banana republic,” “Stasi,” and “Gestapo” flooded conservative social media channels on Monday night. But a weaponized goon squad of armed and unaccountable Feds Behaving Incorrigibly is nothing new.
Let us count a few of the FBI’s nefarious ways:
— Since the Jan. 6 Capitol rally, untold numbers of peaceful American citizens and their families have been harassed in their homes over their constitutionally protected exercise of free speech and assembly. As America’s Frontline Doctors founder Dr. Simone Gold told me in March 2021 after 20 armed FBI agents broke down her door:
“I was paid a visit by the FBI in a Roger Stone kind of take down moment, which is quite uncalled for. You know, if anybody wanted to get a hold of me, they could have picked up the phone and called. I’m very easy to find. But there were literally twenty guys with guns blazing, (and they) broke down my door.”
The Stanford-trained lawyer and Chicago Medical School-trained doctor’s “crime”? Following a crowd that was waved into the Capitol by none other than the Capitol police to deliver a speech on medical freedom that was forced to relocate to National Statuary Hall when chaos broke out. Following the terrifying FBI raid of her family’s home, Gold was sentenced in June to a 60-day prison term and fined $9,500. Her warning to my viewers and me last spring resonates like a clarion trumpet in light of the FBI Mar-a-Lago raid:
“I’m telling you, America, this can happen to you.”
— Remember: Before Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland dispatched his jackboots to Mar-a-Lago, he launched a vindictive crusade against grassroots parents who revolted against anti-white critical race theory and “social emotional learning” claptrap in K-12 public schools across the country last fall. Garland’s infamous Oct. 4, 2021, memorandum framed peaceful school board protests as a national security threat. Garland vowed to use his “authority and resources to discourage these threats, identify them when they occur, and prosecute them when appropriate.”
