If we are expecting the national Republican Party to save our nation, we are going to be sadly disappointed. We would be just as effective if John Durham pulled one of his “special investigations” on the DOJ and FBI. We could get a couple of secretaries and IT programmers locked up for a whole month.
It is all one big club, and the average person is not in it. Carlin was ahead of his time, and right on point. He exposed the lies, deceptions and betrayals. (Caution: bad language ahead)
The Ohio Christian Alliance statement concerning the FBI raid on former President Trump’s residence
The Ohio Christian Alliance is shocked and dismayed at this unprecedented overreach by the Justice Department and the FBI. This raid on former President Trump’s residence is alarming to many citizens of the United States. This has never happened before in our nation’s history. It is a bell that has rung that cannot be unrung, and has set a precedent that has led many Americans to ask what is next.
We are witnessing the political weaponizing of our federal agencies, creating an atmosphere of grave uncertainty about the future of our nation and of our civil liberties. We call on members of Congress to press the issue with the Democratic majority to hold hearings concerning the FBI raid on former President Trump’s residence as to what happened and why. We agree with Congressmen Jim Jordan and Bill Johnson that the FBI Director Christopher Wray and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland need to answer questions before members of Congress. We are in uncharted waters at this point in our nation’s history and the Ohio Christian Alliance would ask all our followers to be watching and praying at this time.

Here is what Americans are saying about the unprecedented FBI raid on former President Trump’s residence.
Rep. Jim Jordan: The Raid Of Mar-A-Lago Is One Of The Most Frightening Things I’ve Ever Seen In Our Country
“They spied on his campaign with altered evidence back in 2016 and 2017. They impeached him once. They impeached him the second time. And now they’ve got the January 6th committee going full tilt against him, trying to keep him from running for office in 2024. And, oh, they raid his private residence. You’ve got to be kidding me. And this comes just one day after they said we’re going to unleash 87,000 IRS agents to come harass Republican small business owners. We know what that’s all about. So that’s the context. Oh, and a year ago, they said we’re going to use the Patriot Act against moms and dads who have the crazy idea that they should be able to speak up for their kids at a school board meeting. So that’s the context. And we’re supposed to say, oh no, this is just fine? Give me a break. Everyone is nervous. But this is one of the most frightening things I have ever seen about our country. And that’s why this is the first time it’s ever happened because it’s not supposed to happen.”
Bill Johnson on FBI’s Raid at Mar-a-Lago
Washington, August 9, 2022, | Ben Keeler (330.337.6951)
U.S. Representative Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) released the following statement:
“The Attorney General and FBI Director should brief Congress immediately on this unprecedented action. The Democrats’ willingness to weaponize the FBI and DOJ for political purposes has already been established, especially when it comes to President Trump…but this action has crossed a dangerous red line in our Republic…one that cannot be uncrossed.
“We’ve seen over and over that only one side of our political spectrum is held accountable by the powers that be in Washington…it will be the duty of House Republicans next January to thoroughly and relentlessly investigate this. If the FBI is brazen enough to raid the home of a former president, and possible future opponent of the current president, then every American should be concerned that federal agencies can be weaponized against them.”
Following the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) raid on Mar-a-Lago, military historian Victor Davis Hanson is calling for the dissolution of the agency, which he calls “one of the great threats to democracy.”
“This idea of a Federal Bureau of Investigation … its record is too dangerous to democracy,” Hanson said in an interview with EpochTV’s American Thought Leaders program following the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. “The left always says democracy dies in darkness. Right now, at this moment, the FBI is one of the great threats to democracy.”
“It’s a terrible thing to say,” Hanson said. But he holds his position: the FBI, he says, intervenes in elections, lies under oath, and is a “massive behemoth that is out of control.”
[The Justice Department] must immediately explain the reason for its raid and it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives, or it will be viewed as a political tactic and undermine any future credible investigation and legitimacy of January 6 investigations.
Former Democratic Congresswoman and Presidential Candidate Calls Out Biden Administration for ‘Abuse of Power
Meanwhile, former congresswoman and Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard said the FBI’s raid on Trump’s home shows an “escalating, very dangerous trend of abuse of power” by the Biden administration.
“This is something that every American should be extremely concerned about because this raid is just the latest serious escalation of this disturbing trend that we’ve seen of blatant abuse of power by those in power, to not only protect their friends but to target their political opponents or frankly anyone who dares to dissent or challenge or disagree or even question what this administration is doing,” Gabbard told Fox News.
The former U.S. Representative from Hawaii also listed several examples of this abuse of power in different agencies, including the FBI’s investigation of Trump for the Russia Hoax. Gabbard also called out the targeting of conservative organizations by the IRS during the Obama administration.
“It’s never happened, and it never would happen if it weren’t Trump,” constitutional rights attorney Alan Dershowitz told the Washington Examiner.
Dershowitz charged that “of course” the raid was politically motivated, equating it to the government’s pursuit of a Chicago mobster on federal income tax evasion or the tactics waged by Joseph Stalin’s longest-serving secret police chief.
“This is an Al Capone prosecution. They couldn’t get Capone on what [they] really wanted to get him on, so they got him on tax evasion,” he said. “This is a Lavrentiy Beria prosecution. Beria said to Stalin, ‘Show me the man, and I’ll find you the crime.’ They’re looking too hard for crimes with which to charge Trump. Their goal is to get him.”
Dershowitz said he believed federal agents might have been searching for materials that could strengthen the investigation into Trump over Jan. 6. However, he said the measures reveal a double standard.

The raid of Mar-a-Lago is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic. – Governor Ron DeSantis
Franklin Graham: Thirty years ago the FBI lost a lot of credibility over the unfortunate events that surrounded Ruby Ridge. Last night as we watched the events that unfolded at Mar-a-Lago, I couldn’t help but think that the FBI and DOJ are losing credibility and the trust of the American people again. I have no idea what was in former President Trump’s safe, but if the government thought there was something there that belonged to them, they certainly could have asked for it. What is happening is that politics has entered into the FBI, the DOJ, and even the IRS. Should we be concerned that there are plans to supercharge the IRS and hire 87,000 new agents? Definitely. This is a step in weaponizing the IRS to act against people, organizations, and businesses who have a voice of dissent against government agendas.
It is an issue of freedom—as Americans, we are losing our freedoms. Our nation has become so corrupt politically and morally. We need to repent and turn from our sins and call on the name of God, asking for His forgiveness. We need changes in leadership. We need men and women who respect Biblical principles and values to run for office at the local, state, and national level. Join me in praying for this country. Ultimately, our hope is not in politicians or leaders, but in Almighty God.
Some dismiss the uproar over the Mar a Lago raid as right-wing paranoid. This helps explain why it’s not – Britt Hume
Dr. Sebastian Gorka, nationally syndicated radio host of America First and former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, told NTD TV that the raid on Trump’s residence in Florida is a Nazi-Gestapo-like tactic.
Gorka said the FBI is supposed to be apolitical and serve justice but the raid by the FBI on Mar-a-Lago, authorized by the Biden administration against a political opponent, shows that the FBI is too corrupted and not salvageable.
“We need transparency, we need to finish draining the swamp, and sadly, as somebody who has trained 1,000s of FBI agents over the years before I joined the White House, it saddens me to say this: the FBI has to be dismantled,” Gorka said during a recent interview with NTD TV.
“The FBI has been corrupted beyond any salvation [and] changing the director or the leadership on the seventh floor,” is not enough.
