Trump Raid: A Shameful Abuse of Power

Trump

This is my take on the beginning of an early, ugly — very ugly — start of the 2024 Presidential Election cycle. If I am right, it is a shame that will hover over us for many election cycles to come. Whether you like or dislike President Donald Trump, he served in office honorably and no one can take that away from him. That is a fact.  Rather than give him the respect he deserves, the current administration seeks to defame him. Their latest attempt? Raiding President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home. Joe Biden is afraid of him; he fears that Mr. Trump might easily earn another four years as president. The indicators are on his side.

Thus it is a grievous, unprecedented attack on a likely opponent that has ever been attempted by a political rival.  Biden’s use of the FBI to denigrate President Trump is a downright slimy way to run for office. The man is not only senile, he is a clear and present danger that cannot be ignored. What he did — ordering the FBI to be his accomplice — exposes the fact that either he suffers from dementia or that he deliberately used his office to disgrace Mr. Trump, Biden’s potential and powerful rival in the 2024 election. Either way he is the loser. Never has a president resorted to such chicanery, to such underhanded trickery this far in advance of a reelection campaign. He gives senior citizens a bad name.  We sixty and seventy year-olds should be ashamed of this old man’s penchant for power.

Were the optics of Biden’s DOJ and FBI raid on President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago, FL  intended to suggest that he is some sort of a criminal? As Senior Editor Matt Vespa at Townhall.com writes it “looked as if the Democrat-run Department of Justice had been unleashed against the top political opponent of the opposing party. Then, we learned that agents were combing the grounds for papers relating to the preservation of documents under the auspices of the National Archives. Are you kidding me? They unleashed an army of federal agents to find those 15 or so boxes that allegedly weren’t turned over after the end of the first Trump presidency. That’s rich—and pure propaganda. No one believes that.” Perhaps Biden was “unleashing the Justice Department’s full force to find something that could bar the former president from running again.”

Newsmax took to the air waves with a panel of guests to unravel the truth about what the raid was all about. Congresswoman Claudia Tenney [R-NY] was among them and she called the raid an “abuse of power…These are just like show trials; these are all about the perp walk. They don’t care if they ultimately get somebody arrested or indicted and then convicted of anything. This is about humiliating and embarrassing people to get that perp-walk effect, get the media, get everyone against the person and then it’s almost impossible for them to have any kind of trial.”

Congresswoman Tenney wasn’t the only one to express concern over the Biden FBI surprise. Note the repeated suggestion that Biden “weaponized” the Department of Justice and the FBI:

Senator Ted Cruz [R-TX]: “The FBI raiding Donald Trump is unprecedented. It is corrupt & an abuse of power. What Nixon tried to do, Biden has now implemented: The Biden Admin has fully weaponized DOJ & FBI to target their political enemies. And with 87K new IRS agents, they’re coming for YOU too.”

Ronna McDaniel, Republican National Committee chairwoman: “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Countless times we have examples of Democrats flouting the law and abusing power with no recourse, including Hunter Biden.  Democrats continually weaponize the bureaucracy against Republicans. This raid is outrageous.”

Kari Lake Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate: “This is one of the darkest days in American history: the day our Government, originally created by the People, turned against us. This illegitimate, corrupt Regime hates America and has weaponized the entirety of the Federal Government to take down President Donald Trump.”

The Justice Department and FBI declined to comment, according to an ABC News report. They were speechless.

The FBI wire tapped MLK and spied on JFK. More recently, we’ve had James Rosens parents phone tapped, RussiaGate, and Project Veritas… this is not one isolated incident but a PATTERN of abuse by Democrats who, while calling for defunding police, never mention the FBI in that conversation. But why would they when the FBI is in their pocket?

I am very frightened of the way our government is running. They are turning to communism. People are afraid to say or do anything anymore for fear of getting sued or jailed. What happened to our country? I don’t like the way things are headed.

I joined the Army in 1964 and accordingly took an oath to “defend the Constitution of the United States of America from all enemies, foreign and domestic.” I have always been proud of my six years of active duty. During that time I served here in the USA, served in Vietnam and served in Germany. I spent many days in the hospital because I didn’t duck fast enough a couple of times. After all of that, now I have to see the greatest president in my 78 years of my life treated with total contempt by the very people who are supposed to be concerned with protecting our once great Republic. It makes me absolutely sick! For the record, the Sgt Pops nickname is recorded as a legitimate pen name in the copyright division of the US Library of Congress. My books of Veteran poetry are used by many councillors in PTSD treatment programs.

I would also suggest that Mara Lago is now compromised I can almost guarantee it has been bugged. I know how advanced the technology had become in the 1980’s and that was far more advanced than most people realize with micro technologies, I have no idea how advanced the technology has become with nano technologies but you can bet that you couldn’t expect to have a private conversation at Mara Lago

This is totally ridiculous, this wanna be president and incompetent lying administration should be kicked out of the white house and tried for treason, and abuse of power they should not be running the country period . The way I see it America has never in counter any thing like this before and, none of the officials who aren’t crooked don’t know what to do , so they let this cancerous administration stay in the white house what a cop out if it was Trump doin what Biden was doin his whole administration would have been tried for treason and out on their ear.

All I can say is that history will write the true story despite the push to narrate the storyline. Even famous writers who suffer from TDS have had problems trying to negate the current situation when they incorporate into their own stories. Like a previous article had discussed, they can not see any other views than their own because they can’t ACCEPT being not right because they would have to compromise their own personal views.
The problem is that they have never had to face the consequences of their actions. They created the problem and use their TDS as a fallback tactic. Let’s hope that positive change will occur and their actions will have consequences.

I don’t know who was in charge of that awful raid. They should be in jail for a long time. If that was the President he should be out of office and locked up. People like that do not belong in public let alone in office for this wonderful country. God bless America.

I wish you people would quit saying Biden ordered this or Biden ordered that , he can’t dress himself or think for himself someone else is ordering all this crap and we need to find out who. And us Republicans need to stick together and vote to get every Democrat out of office first and then every RINO. This country is broken but easily fixed if Republicans grow some balls.

They wouldn’t allow Trumps lawyers to see the warrant. Why?

Eric Trump says they went anywhere on the property that they wanted, even “places they shouldn’t have been allowed”. Why?

They wanted all security cameras turned off! Why?

30 agents looking for 10 hours! Why?

The whole point of a “warrant” is so they can present it to the property owner to show that they have legal cause to enter and search.
Also, the warrant will contain any restrictions pertaining to what property / items they can look for (probable cause) and where on the premises they may look for said property. They don’t usually have free reign to take anything they want or go wherever they want! Warrants aren’t usually open-ended like that, there are usually restrictions involved! This operation is HIGHLY suspicious!
Big surprise!

Look at the timing! three months before the primary election and will do anything to hinder Trump from running. I saw the January 6 videos and those security/police held open the doors to let people in. Ashley Babbitt was unarmed and she should not have been shot. The dirty Dems will not stop. They have destroyed our country, illegals coming across the border (I have no problem with coming legally) bringing drugs, crime and diseases. This administration has ruined our country and our lives. Many of these illegals will not assimilate to our culture and laws. I have medical issues and had retired but had to take a job to make ends meet yet our taxes pay for a free for all toward illegals. Crime which goes unpunished, drugs, inflation, lies and hate. Biden has been a liar and plagiarizer his entire life. The FBI should have performed this raid on the Bidens’ homes including Hunter’s. They really made a big deal out of it with automatic weapons and 30 agents. I truly hope they have to face the consequences but I doubt it. It was stated Paul Pelosi’s blood work for his DUI wasn’t done until hours after they took him in. Paul Jr. went with Nancy to visit Taiwan, Japan, etc. Is he the second Hunter Biden?
Meanwhile Adams in NY is threatening to take persons down to Texas to knock on doors and just recently played the race card stating he will support Beto who has done nothing in his life. Adams has to realize NY is a sanctuary city. He hasn’t done anything on crime and now complains about illegals. He should take a trip to the border and face what Abbot and those in the south have had to deal with. May God bless our country.

The Communists within the DNC are going for it now. We can all sit back and not say the truth of what is happening but we have had Communists within our government. Communist tactics to take control. Be aware folks, they are laying the groundwork for the implementation of Communism into the US.

Do we really need further proof that Communism through the leadership of the DNC has infiltrated the US government and they now are working very hard to take us down. Think about the big money laundered to the Biden’s from Communist China. Not to mention the corrupt Clintons and Obama leadership and their Communist background.

Communists in action is what Antifa and the other Dem protesters are. Kamela has Communism in her background. Removing our historical statues is part of the Communist plan of removing a country’s history The leadership of the Democrat Party is Communist—Nancy Pelosi’s mentor was Vivian Halinan whose far-left lawyer husband defended communists and hosted parties for the CPUSA.

America better wakeup you’re under assault from within by people who are funded by foreign sources.
I refer to it as the Communist DNC as most in the leadership are Communists. I don’t say this lightly. Why I believe this is can be found in the book “You Can Still Trust the Communists (to be Communists).pdf The book can be found for free online by searching the title. The first 20 pages or so are slow reading but after that, I couldn’t put the book down. An updated version of this book by David Noebel can be found online.

This book reminded me of Bill Clinton’s desire to visit Russia and Russia allowed him in.
This book states the USSR only allowed those to visit that they believed they could use and then remember, they gave permission for Bill Clinton to visit when he was a Rhodes scholar.
Bernie Sanders was able to visit. People should ask, why were these two men were so infatuated with Russia.

Obama also has Communism in his upbringing. Remember Obama and Michelle hung Mao Christmas ornaments on the White House tree and no one made a big deal out it.

These Dems are working to destroy our country by creating chaos (Antifa) as well as attempting to remove history (statues, renaming schools as Feinstein did the other day even taking her own name off of one) & they have already taken over education. Many of these Communists are getting to their end time and therefore, they are pushing what they have worked for their entire political lives, before they die.

The outline for what is happening now is in the book I noted above. My grandparents fled Communism a hundred years ago and now it is here. After the US is taken over, there is nowhere else to go.

I expressed my disgust with the FBI raid on President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in other media, but I will repeat my sentiments here. This could’ve been handled differently; if it’s really about missing classified documents not turned over to the National Archives, a subpoena would’ve been sufficient. But no, that wouldn’t have provided the optics the Biden DOJ wanted. This was all about political persecution. It was pure political drama designed to humiliate Donald Trump and poison public opinion against him. This raid was well-planned and some discussion of the government’s next steps had to be calculated in advance considering a move of this magnitude.
It begs the question: Did the FBI have probable cause for a search warrant? I’m inclined to doubt it.
What did they hope to find? We don’t know and neither did the FBI because they removed a number of boxes without examining any of the contents. Which also raises more questions than answers.
I expect the DOJ will go for an indictment and if they do, they had better have a lot more weight behind it than some fundamentally weak allegation predicated upon legally questionable grounds.

This sort of thing is what we might expect from a dictatorship, but not from the United States. The Biden FBI and DOJ have become the Gestapo for today’s Democratic Party. First, we saw signs of this when the IRS targeted conservative PACs,denying their ability to participate in the political process. We witnessed this when the DOJ began investigating parents who railed against local school boards as “domestic terrorists” because they objected to the radical Marxist curriculum being spoon-fed to their.children. We saw the same heavy-handed tactics used against anyone who was part of Donald Trump’s circle — Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Peter Navarro, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, and others. In every instance, it was government overreach on parade. The same is true of Nancy Pelosi’s Jan. 6th Committee investigating the Capitol Hill riot, a clear example of a Stalinist show trial conspicuously devoid of constitutional “due process” protections — an illegal use of taxpayer money to attack and malign a political opponent.

To date, the FBI and DOJ have been unsurprisingly silent about the raid on Mar-a-Lago. This only reinforces the old adage, “Democracy dies in darkness.” The American public must demand full accountability for this unprecedented abuse of power. It doesn’t matter whether you like or dislike Donald J. Trump. But it does matter that a government wielding this kind of power is a clear and present danger to the survival of our republic.

NO ONE is safe from this crooked and wicked and ungodly administration if you are not a Democrat. No one is too little for them to humiliate of tear to pieces with their viscous talk and accusations – absolutely no one. Now, if you are on the other side, you can commit any crime you wish and not even the pitiful media will mention it. The consolation is have is “GOD WILL HAVE THE LAST WORD.”

Abusive? YES? IMO also criminal, not just a simple violation of Constitutional rights. The DemocRats are showing how to abuse out Constitutional governance and using this abuse to try to establish a quasi-Communist governmental citizen that they try to convince the citizenry is Constitutional. It is beginning to look like the biggest enemy of our Constitutional governance is not Russia, China, etc. It is the DemocRat Party!!!!! As I’ve said before, the dominating goal of the DemocRat Party is not to GOVERN, but instead to RULE (Commie style). Sigh … election do matter … and a rigged election can have hellacious consequences to the great majority of the citizenry.

IMO, the news media in general is pretty low-key in their presentation and analysis of this criminal violation of an outgoing POTUS. It is so obvious that when the next non-DemocRat POTUS takes office he/she fires ever single member of the FBI (Feckless Biden Idiots) group that was involved with this outrage.

Biden is sailing along in the direction of converting our Constitutional Democracy into a Communist Rule bit-by-bit. He has now destroyed the majority of trust of the citizenry with regard to the FBI (Feckless Biden Interlopers). Seems to me it is the present FBI personnel that need to be intrusively investigated.

Jesse Watters: Live on FOX Five yesterday made statement: that: maybe FBI planted evidence during this raid as the CIA & FBI have done this before”. That is a very strong accusation only couple of days after MaraLago raid. We do not need more conspiracy theories in this country & I hope that a whole bunch of people learned from Alex Jones trial & especially when he admitted that he knew he was telling a false conspiracy on INFO Wars program. FOX needs to question Watters on his statement & I suggest to all to quit jumping to conclusions before the truth comes out on what the affidavit & Search Warrant are made of.

My take is that this is the only way the Dems get their base out to vote. They know they are headed to losing in the mid-terms as well as the next presidential election. Rile up Trump as well as those who support him on the fringes, and you end up with the same outcome and turnout as 2020. And now that some one has taken drastic action against the FBI in Cincinnati, it is playing right into their hands.
