Did the FBI Finally Go Too Far?

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 9/26/2022 5:05:13 AM

On reading about the Saturday arrest of pro-life activist Mark Houck, I thought the author at this alternative site had to be exaggerating. It struck me as beyond belief that two dozen or so armed FBI agents would swarm the house of a Catholic father of seven, rifles drawn, and arrest him in front of his weeping children for anything short of murder. I have had to recalibrate my belief system. The “crime” fell quite a bit short of murder. (snip) As has become much too obvious, only one side of the abortion debate has been awarded federal protection.

"Too far" is a speck in the rear view mirror. Garland is sending a message to conservative Christians.

As I recall the 0 and the dims told us Garland was a "moderate" when he nominated him for SCOTUS. Non-violent abortion opponents draw FBI attention while murdering gangs and drug dealers walk freely among us. Is it not ironic that "pro-choice" advocates want to shut down pregnancy crisis centers which do not offer abortion services? Do pro-life advocates lack a "spark of divinity", nancy?

I’m doing 12 months probation for touching a 300lbs homosexual who laughed in my face at having successfully lied to get me in trouble in a federal workplace (VHA). He would come into my office and brag about being the wife in his marriage. Leftists (with the support of “conservative” women) have created a hostile environment for all Christian white men in the workplace. This is the world you’ve created, so don’t whine about it too much. I’ve stopped crying for any protected class who meet with extreme violence. You made it, you own it. Let’s not pretend that this women’s world isn’t EXACTLY what you’ve voted for in the past.

The uncontrolled hatred on the left has been provoked by a President calling those who voted for his opponent “domestic terrorists,” by Democrat Maxine Waters saying to “get in their faces in public places and tell them they’re not wanted here,” etc, etc. Our corrupt media has justified their provocation. Now we have a crazy, extremist 41 year old liberal running down an 18 year old and murdering him, all while accusing the conservative of being an “extremist.” We have the uncontrolled hatred of Letitia James harassing not only a former President, but his children as well. Then 30 FBI terrorizing a man’s wife and children for absolutely no reason beyond politics. They have rolled a boulder down on others that surely will crush them.

The abuse became public back when Billy Jeff and Jackal Reno had them point an automatic rifle in the face of Elian Gonzalez, the child survivor of a boat trip from Cuba. Then they barbecued David Koresch and a bunch of kids in Texas. Scaring people with gangs of armed thugs has become their modus operandi ever since.

"...“Assault is always a serious offense, and under the FACE Act, if the victim is targeted because of their association with a reproductive... clinic, it is a federal crime,” huffed U.S. Attorney Jacqueline Romero...." "“Put simply, violence is never the answer,” said agent Maguire. “Violating the FACE Act by committing a physical assault is a serious crime..." In other words: 'If certain people of certain groups claim you did violence, our jackbooted thugs will invade your home weapons drawn, threaten and scare your kids, chain you up, haul you away, throw you in a cage and watch as you lose everything you have trying to get your freedom back.' No, that's violence.

The lawfare unit of Biden’s puppet masters (who are behind these Stasi raids) are intentionally provoking civil war. “See, we told you they’re really insurrectionists”, they’ll say. Well, if you keep poking and prodding a sleeping dog, guess what happens? In the near term, if this scenario (FBI/BATF raid at your home) happens to you, contact local law enforcement, particularly the County Sheriff office, immediately. They are probably in the dark about what’s happening as much as you are. Don’t open the door until local LE arrives and then demand to see the warrant. Local LE can help de-escalate the situation (at least holstering drawn weapons) until everyone cools off. If there’s no search or arrest warrant, they’re trespassing and they must leave. If there is a warrant, contact a lawyer and then don’t say anything to the FBI/BATF agents until he or she arrives.

As it rips the US Constitution to shreds, the true business of the FBI goes unresolved: - the Mexican cartels have taken over the southern border, - illegal immigration has exploded, - Venezuelan convicts are entering the USA en masse, - fentanyl is flooding the USA, - systemic election fraud remains uninvestigated, - the Biden crime family remains uninvestigated, - the Covid vaccine fraud continues killing Americans by the thousands while its enablers remain uninvestigated, - etc etc etc

Do I see Americans taking to the streets to protest? Uh, no. While "conservative" influencers preach "Keep your powder dry", and the usual conservative sloth and fear impede any sort of public demonstration, what does one expect? If the elections are rigged, as many suggest they will be, it seems the ballot box is a futile place to "protest". And then what? Another J6 "trap"? The chilling effect is appearing to be more a "freezing effect", and it's working well while "conservatives" remain quiescent in the wake of every "outrage".

#21 - I offer the path of quiet resistance. Our enemies are taunting us for a violent response, just as you mock us. History as shown the path to true victory is such taken by the Poles' Solidarity movement. The great march led by Lech Walenza did not spring up overnight, but was the result of long years of silent work. We're behind the time line, but we are starting with a different political culture. This mid-term election the MAGA candidates are gaining ground, while Dim candidates are failing. The people are fueling these winning candidates and the Uniparty is really not part of the equation. That is why the FBI has been weaponized against the people. They believe the fear they are instilling will keep us quiet and inactive. They are only half right. It will keep us quiet, but it will make us more active. We will continue to use peaceful means to get our messages around, even if it comes down to word of mouth. We will limit our interactions with government to its absolute minimum by ignoring any "voluntary" programs offered by local governments or neighborhood organizations. Do not comply. Remember the masks. #16 - Great Post! Your sheriff is a constitutionally elected official; elected by you, to protect you. Call him first!

For two years, a U.S. presidential administration has perpetrated a racial hoax. Teamed up with Black Lives Matter (BLM), an unscrupulous, failed, corrupt organization that promotes violence, Americans have been duped by the world’s largest racial hoax. In mid-2019, driven by Trump hatred, congressional hearings on Confronting White Supremacy laid the groundwork. Those hearings introduced a concept that Team Biden and the media would recite endlessly: White supremacists are extremist domestic terrorists and the biggest threat to the nation. Democrat congressman Jamie Raskin said that, in 2018, the FBI identified 39 such murders (less than 0.02% of deaths from drug overdoses).

The day before yesterday, amid all the United Nations festivities, Joe Biden was addressing the Global Fund's Seventh Replenishment Conference in New York. The event was organized to raise funds to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Biden ended his speech by thanking all the participants for their contributions. Biden had managed the challenging part of the exercise, reading off the teleprompter devoid of major gaffes. All he had to do was exit the stage into a safe zone away from prying eyes and camera lenses. Anyone with functioning cognitive abilities could achieve this with ease; alas that wasn't the case with Biden.

According to an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education, Black student enrollment in American colleges and universities has declined dramatically in the past ten years, 24 percent in fact, from 2.5 million students in 2010 to 1.9 million in 2020. Prior to that ten-year period, argues Chronicle reporter Oyin Adedoyin, “The story of Black college students in the USA was a narrative of success.” Judging only by numbers, Adedoyin is right. Black population on campus grew nine-fold from 1966 to 2010. The decline since 2010 puzzles administrators given the thousands of DEI officers they have hired and the myriad enticements they have offered to Black students.

President Joe Biden warned oil executives on Wednesday not to use Hurricane Ian as an excuse to raise oil prices, illustrating how important the issue is ahead of the midterm elections. The president issued the dire warning, even repeating himself, during opening remarks at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health. “I want to add one more warning. That’s warning to the oil and gas industry executives. Do not, let me repeat, do not! Do not use this as an excuse to raise gasoline prices or gouge the American people,” Biden said during a briefing on Hurricane Ian preparations. “The price of oil has stayed relatively low.

President Biden once again shirked any responsibility for skyrocketing gas prices and instead demanded that gas stations cut prices at the pump for drivers despite their costs to stay in business being dictated by the market. [Video] His flawed economic reasoning is that oil prices are dropping. Oil prices are not the only factor in the price of a gallon of gasoline. Taxation and crushing regulation as well as progressive policies have a lot to do with it. It’s almost as if Biden and the left want to drive gas stations out of business. In a meeting with economic aides on Monday, Biden excoriated gas stations,

President Biden asked for the late Rep. Jackie Walorski to identify herself at a Washington event Wednesday, forgetting that the Indiana Republican died in a car crash last month.

Transgender men and nonbinary teenagers who underwent breast removal surgery reported having a better body image afterward, according to a new study. Northwestern Medicine looked at 70 female-body patients between the ages of 13 and 24 who either received “top surgery,” or mastectomies (36 patients), or who received testosterone therapy but didn’t get mastectomies (34 patients). Researchers had patients report about their body image before they began their treatment path and then three months later. The study found that “gender-affirming top surgery is associated with significant improvement in chest dysphoria, gender congruence and body image in transmasculine and nonbinary teens and young adults,” according to a press release

In his first inaugural address in March 1933, President Franklin D.

An estimated 12 million people were out of work, about one-fourth of the civilian labor force. “More than 11,000 of 24,000 banks had failed, destroying the savings of depositors,” according to the National Archives.
