Mar-A-Lago: The Second “Shot Heard ‘Round The World”

Written by Allan Erickson on August 12, 2022

The raid on Mar-a-Lago is the second shot heard ’round the world. Like the colonists in 1775 at Lexington, Americans were fired upon Aug. 9th. The British fired first in 1775, starting the Revolution.

The FBI/DOJ/WH launched the 2nd American Revolution by means of an outrageous raid on the private residence of a former President.

It’s one thing to manufacture documents and lie to the FISA court. It’s one thing to launch endless investigations without merit. It is one thing to lie, sue and slander, threaten and conspire to destroy an opposition President.

It is quite another thing to totally ignore the rule of law. It is clearly dictatorial to weaponize law enforcement against political opponents. With this action, Democrats have openly declared war against more than half the American people, against the Republic itself.

From what we know so far, someone at DOJ ordered this farce. Officials are so far quite silent, raising suspicions higher. Something this monumental was not merely a pet project of some underling. We know FBI agents met with President Trump and his lawyers on June 3. His documents were the topic. Reportedly, Trump cooperated with all FBI requirements, answering all questions, and complying completely.

The raid was entirely unnecessary unless, of course, the aim is to destroy Trump and the America First movement.

Concurrently, when Congress allows Biden to sign into law the latest Build Back Better fiasco, 87,000 new IRS agents will be hired and deployed to audit America First voters. (Side note: a recently discovered job posting by the IRS informs applicants they must be willing to use lethal force. Never before has the IRS had arrest power. Never before has the IRS been armed to the teeth as was accomplished in recent years. Never before has the IRS hailed the establishment of a Gestapo-like police state.)

Do you recall last year Biden signing an EO telling all 600 federal agencies to submit plans for turning out the vote: turning down certain voters, turning up preferred voters.

Taking these elements together, a horrible picture forms.

This unprecedented raid is illegal and immoral, a complete betrayal of trust. Documents were withheld, a biased judge was used to sign the warrant, observers were disallowed, and the warrant was withheld until after the raid. As many commentators have noted, no such action was taken against Hillary Clinton when she took Top Secret documents, stored them on her home computer, sent many out, then destroyed the evidence. Clear evidence pointed to probable cause that felonies were committed. Still, no prosecution. You might ask why? Why was Clinton given a pass? Because no sitting President had ever used the full force of federal law enforcement against a presidential opponent, and no sitting President had ever unleashed the feds against a former President. Trump, no doubt, declined using his power to prosecute Clinton, demonstrating respect for tradition, and an understanding of the terrible fallout from such action. For without trust no government can function on behalf of free people. Government cannot protect your rights even as it violates them! Without trust the rule of law is easily demolished, and martial law is inevitable.

This raid is the second shot heard ’round the world. Democrats have kindled the rage of the majority, letting their hatred for this country show clear as day.

Democrats will pay for this, very dearly, in future elections, the correct place to fight the 2nd American Revolution.
