OPINION:

Joe Biden and Merrick Garland have intentionally undermined the rule of law in the United States. This unprecedented, unlawful raid on President Donald Trump’s private residence should alarm every American citizen regardless of political affiliation. For years, the DOJ, FBI, and others have targeted law-abiding citizens and ignored blatant corruption on the left. Now, their motives are no longer hidden as they brazenly target Mr. Trump and other conservative warriors in acts of political retribution. 

The FBI should be investigated and held accountable. This rogue organization lied to the public about the Hunter Biden laptop, Steele dossier, and under Mr. Garland’s leadership serves as the enforcement arm of the Democrat Party. When Republicans take back the House, Chris Wray, Peter Strzok, and other intelligence officials must testify before Congress regarding the politicization of this once respected institution. 


America shouldn’t operate under a two-tiered justice system. It is a double standard that Hillary Clinton can acid wash over 33,000 subpoenaed emails with no consequence, Hunter Biden has a free pass despite his lengthy, documented record of illegality, and Andrew Cuomo can escape the nursing home scandal without any repercussions. FBI its leaders have deeply undermined their own credibility, and their raid on Mr. Trump highlights this dark era of corruption. In Congress, the House must lock in on investigations. The American people deserve justice and accountability. 

The Democrats have no platform for 2022, and they have openly declared war on the American public. In addition to targeting Mr. Trump, the Democrats are planning to unleash 87,000 more IRS agents on the public. Instead of winning on policy, Mr. Biden and his enablers resort to intimidation and Gestapo tactics since they know the majority of Americans do not support their agenda. These radicals have no limits, and they will target anyone who backs Mr. Trump. For reference, they seized Congressman Scott Perry’s cell phone shortly after the raid. 

Joe Biden and the Democrats are terrified at the prospect of a 2024 Trump campaign. Mr. Trump still dominates the political landscape as his endorsed candidates continue to win across the nation. The establishment fears Mr. Trump because he cannot be bought, and his economic and foreign policies run contrary to the trend of globalism. This raid on Mar-a-Lago displays the Democrats’ paranoia, and it has united our party. 

Americans must realize the importance of this upcoming midterm election. At the federal, state, and local levels, law-abiding citizens of all stripes need to get behind conservative candidates who are committed to upholding a free and fair justice system. If we are going to get America back on the right track, Republicans must run the table in November. We must defend President Trump and stand firm in the face of tyranny. Everything from the Russia collusion hoax, to threatening parents at school boards, and the dereliction of duty on our border needs to be fully investigated. Merrick Garland, Alejandro Mayorkas, and Joe Biden have derailed our once prosperous nation. We must take peaceful action to take back control of our government and return the power to We the People. The fate of our Republic hangs in the balance.
