In a normal world, the national outcry that ensued after Biden delivered his “war” speech against Donald Trump and MAGA Americans from outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia on Sept. 1 would have given a troubled administration pause.
But we are not living in a normal world. We are living in a world where those who do not believe in a free America will do anything, at any cost, to advance the regime they have pledged allegiance to, including trampling on the civil rights of a former president and seizing the phones and communications of his colleagues and lawyers.
What started with the raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Largo home and escalated into the delivery of one of the most despicable speeches to ever be delivered by an American president, is culminating in an unprecedent political inquest with enough abuse of power to make you believe you are in the former Soviet Union.
The Justice Department’s attack against President Trump and MAGA supporters has expanded into what is now a three-pronged campaign: rounding up anyone who may or may not have breached the Capitol on Jan. 6 during the election protest, demonizing advisers and aides alleged to have been involved in overturning the 2020 election and accusing Trump’s chief fundraising vehicle, the Save America PAC, of mismanagement.
According to The New York Times, Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Justice Department issued about 40 subpoenas in the last week leading up to the midterm elections on Nov. 8, 2022, greatly expanding the investigation beyond a simple breach of the Capitol building on Jan. 6.
The subpoenas are said to be related to the actions of former President Donald Trump and his closest colleagues and aides who are alleged to have participated in an effort to “overturn the 2020 election.”
To-date, victims of the Biden Gestapo have included heavy hitters Steve Bannon, Peter Navarro, Trump lawyers Boris Epshteyn and Rudy Giuliani and Steven Miller.
The inquest will likely become more intense when, according to Just the News, the Jan. 6 committee reconvenes after a six-week recess:
“Over the roughly six-week recess, committee members reportedly interviewed witnesses and tried to get cooperation from others, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and former Vice President Mike Pence.”
Biden’s dark, ominous war cry on Sept. 1 was perhaps this nation’s second shot heard around the world. In his angry speech, Biden talked of the soul of America and Democracy while decrying the Make America Great Again populist movement and demonizing his political opponents.
And as Biden himself said, “We must be honest with each other and with ourselves: Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal.” And old Joe would be right.
It isn’t normal in America that a presidential administration conduct a prolonged witch hunt on a former President who is no longer in power but may run for re-election.
It isn’t normal in America to seize the telephones and communications of attorney-client privileged information.
It isn’t normal to hold protestors in a jail cell without bond for trespassing and misdemeanors.
It isn’t normal for an entire administration to weaponize the Justice Department against its own citizens.
It isn’t normal for a presidential administration to treat Americans who question the outcome of an election as domestic terrorists.
No, we are not living in a “normal” world.
