Biden DOJ Ramps Up Crusade to Persecute, Imprison Pro-Life Americans

AMAC Exclusive – By Aaron Flanigan

The deep-rooted corruption of the Biden administration has already reached new and frightening lows this year when the Department of Justice shockingly convicted six pro-life activists—who now face up to 11 years in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines—for doing nothing more than peacefully singing hymns and praying in the hallway outside a Nashville abortion clinic.

The Biden administration’s record of anti-Christian persecution has garnered increasing attention from Republican leaders, and the conviction of the Nashville activists reveals the chilling extent to which the left is willing to weaponize the law to silence, intimidate, and ultimately imprison Christians, pro-life Americans, and other citizens who oppose the Democrat Party’s extreme views on social and cultural issues.

At the end of January, Chester Gallagher, Paul Vaughn, Heather Idoni, Calvin Zastrow, Coleman Boyd, and Dennis Green were found guilty of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act and of “conspiracy against rights,” both of which are felony charges. The Biden DOJ accused the activists of “force and physical obstruction to injure, intimidate and interfere with employees of the clinic and a patient who was seeking reproductive health services.”

But since-released video footage of the protest, which occurred in March 2021, tells a vastly different story. Rather than seeking to “injure” or “intimidate” expectant mothers, the activists were simply sitting in the abortion clinic hallway singing Christian songs without any discernible intention of threatening or causing harm to any women.

As many conservative analysts and legal scholars have argued, an honest reading of the FACE Act would preclude such severe prosecution of the Nashville protestors. As a recent Washington Examiner editorial notes, the FACE Act “prohibits intimidation and the use of force that is used to interfere with access to abortion clinics.” It does not, however “prohibit nonintrusive protest or supersede activists’ free speech rights.”

As such, the editorial continues, it is difficult to reach any conclusion other than that the Biden DOJ was eager to target pro-life American in violation of their First Amendment rights.

The Biden administration has notably pursued no comparable charges against the individuals responsible for vandalizing pro-life pregnancy centers and churches in the wake of the 2022 Dobbs decision. While the FACE Act is supposed to protect abortion clinics and pro-life clinics equally, in practice it has only been used to against pro-lifers.

The conviction of the Nashville protesters is not the only instance of Biden’s abuse of the FACE Act. In the fall of 2022, the FBI sent a team of armed agents to raid the home of Mark Houck, a Catholic pro-life activist and father of seven. Houck was arrested and charged with violating the FACE Act stemming from an incident outside an abortion center.

As video evidence showed, Houck was praying the rosary outside a clinic with his son when a pro-abortion activist approached and verbally harassed them. Houck described how the abortion activist hurled expletive-laced insults at his son, which prompted Houck to shove him to the ground.

For this act, Houck faced 11 years in prison and a $350,000 fine—a sentence slammed by conservatives and religious freedom advocates as further evidence of the Biden administration’s targeting of Christians.

“The Biden administration has filed two brazenly defective and discriminatory charges against Mark Houck under the FACE Act,” said Mark Breen, a lawyer from the conservative Thomas More Society. “This case is being brought solely to intimidate people of faith and pro-life Americans.” Even a U.S. district judge noted that the FACE Act seemed to “be stretched a little thin” in the case of Houck.

Though Houck was ultimately acquitted by a Pennsylvania jury in January of last year, the Biden administration has sent the clear message to pro-life Americans that they are not safe to freely express their views.

Since Biden took office, the DOJ has also deployed FBI agents to target patriotic parents objecting to far-left content in their school curriculums, sent agents to Catholic parishes to root out alleged “extremist” threats (defined as “traditional” Catholics), and refused to invoke the FACE Act or take any concrete action to stop the onslaught of violent attacks against crisis pregnancy centers, Catholic parishes, and Christian churches.

Meanwhile, left-wing protestors are openly defiling the U.S. Constitution at the National Archives, blocking major highways in support of Hamas-controlled Gaza, illegally invading state legislative chambers, and holding “die-ins” at DMV offices—yet they all do so confident that they will never face anything close to the charges now being levied against the Nashville pro-life activists.

Is it any wonder that Christians and conservatives have lost confidence in the Biden DOJ’s willingness to enforce the law impartially, without fear or favor?

“You wouldn’t be here if the Trump administration was in the White House,” Mark Houck recalled saying to the multitude of agents who stormed his home. As these attacks continue to escalate, Christians’ best hope may be for Trump to return to the executive mansion.

They should have protested outside the family homes of Supreme Court Justices because apparently that isn’t a law that’s enforced. Better yet, protest in “drag” and claim you’re “transgender”… nobody will dare touch you! America is upside down.

Biden and his goons treat pro-life Americans as if they are cows that have escaped their fences and need to be stopped from causing more trouble to the surrounding population. If a cow gets out of its fence and raises trouble with the neighborhood, its common for the farmer to make the fence stronger and even confine the animal to more closed quarters. Biden has the exact same attitude toward Americans who have the bravery and heart to speak up for the unborn children that are being butchered by the millions. To Biden, even nonviolent protest against violent abortion is an afront to the Woke Marxists, and Biden and his administration are totally in bed with the far left extremists.

This very same DOJ dealt swiftly with Jan 6 insurrection but turns the blind eye to criminal illegals trafficking of children and to the fact that there no longer is a rule of law We are on the way to justice a la chinese where every movement of every person is monitored and those not complying are pronounced the enemy of the state I can see a new department sprouting up and citizens comities as well

True Conservative 

I’m a True Conservative. I took a political test at my workplace in Connecticut and was the most conservative. I scored 91% conservative in the top 2% for all Americans. I have impressive conservative credentials. I even did a tea party. 

I was unfairly zotted from Free Republic in June 2010. I stated that I was very conservative in a thread. Then darkwing104 tried to lie about my position on an issue related to the BP oil spill. Then 50mm started in by agreeing with darkwing104 even though he was misrepresenting me. I was a conservative, am a conservative and always will be a conservative. A true conservative, in the top 2% of all Americans. 

I TAKE MY CONSERVATISM VERY VERY VERY SERIOUSLY!!!!! 

VOTE REPUBLICAN!!! 

YOU OWE ME RESPECT!!!

The world’s biggest bigots are the one’s who purport to crusade against bigotry. This is a specialty of our President Biden and his deep bench of Democrat influencers… including former President Obama, who is, perhaps, the most extreme bigot I have ever witnessed in action.
The Democrat’s pursuit of the “Self-Righteous Soundbite” is their highest purpose, and they will relentlessly utter pretentious, humanitarian platitudes to a constituency that they chose solely on the basis of their lack of intelligence and/or common sense.
It’s been rumored that the Democrats have been using, in conjunction with their patented “Pretentious Platitude Platform”, a secret weapon called the “Atmospheric Abject Supid-o-Graph”, which detects and maps the IQ’s of the most intellectually ungifted individuals in their voting districts and beyond… and compells them to support Democrat initiatives that most conspicuously uphold their most morally bereft principles.
This is becoming a “tech war”, folks, that requires the most indelicate and condescending remarks we can put forth… in a Supreme effort to aquaint the misguided Democrat constituencies with the irony that makes them recognize that lies are not truth, bad is not good, and the plumbing fixture that sits next to the toilet brush is not a filing cabinet.
Go forward, then, and MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR HUMANITY !!!

Use the Constitution “as written” which begins with free speech and implement any attempt to attack it, being free speech, as a crime hard and fast. That’s a start. Too darn much is spoken, written, displayed as truth, is not. Let no amount of money, political pressure or influence should have the right to lie. Make lying a crime against the citizens of this country. I should never trump the truth. No amount of changing “how” we should speak should alter the truth. If we can’t have actual protection by the government, fire every damn one to them whose lies have taken precedence over fact. Let’s clean the slate. And hold back on AI for sure in every instance that does not benefit the well being of all citizens.

A person without a conscience, a sociopath. What kind of president who has the supposed top protection agency in the world needs trained guard dogs? A person who has something to hide, many things to hide. What kind of person, uses, supposed semi-adult adicted child, to extend his own wealth? What kind of person lies compulsively? If there is such a “thing” as that, I would never ever vote for such. A hell of a lot of we with consciences won’t either.

Article broken.
The author of the article mentions “left wing protesters.”
What “the left” does is not “protest,” when they knowingly, intentionally use the tools of fear, intimidation, overt violence in affecting change THEY believe in.
This is the de facto definition of TERRORISM in thought and deed, so, not to put too fine a point on it, “Left wing TERRORISTS” (fill in the blank).
There, I fixed it for you.

The DOJ of course has field reps and offices across the country and regularly a member of the DOJ will make area wide speaking engagements so as to assure the citizens that unlike what they perceive, the DOJ exists solely for the betterment of man. In other words they go out into the community to repeat their narrative of lies.
Attend these meetings and hang around afterward until the speaker goes out to his vehicle to leave. Carefully follow the spokesman and if he goes home you can then determine his address. If he goes to the office, sit and wait until the end of the workday and then follow the speaker home. The important thing is to find the home address.
Once found go online and doxx the holy heck out of the creature and let God and human nature take care of everything else.
