A couple of days ago the “pillow man,” Mike Lindell was detained by the FBI at a fast-food restaurant and was issued a subpoena from the Colorado Grand Jury demanding he turn over his phone. Lindell has been exercising his First Amendment right to speak out against the ruling class. Apparently, the FBI and the DOJ disagree. It seems half of the country are now deemed as domestic terrorists and can be the victim at any time of the overwhelming power of federal law enforcement. Never before in our history has the police state directed its power on its own law-abiding citizens all the while capital crimes are rampant in cities and criminals are routinely let out of jail without bail.
With precision, the national law enforcement apparatus of the federal government are targeting Trump allies in an effort to intimate those who oppose the progressive Biden Administration and to send a message to those who are sympathetic and detest the egregious policies of the left. Every citizen who does not agree with the Democratic party has now been issued a warning. Disagree and speak out against the corrupt Biden Administration or else pay the price, literally and figuratively. The average person does not want to be on the other side of the power because they now know they could crush them like a bug. Let there be no mistake, the federal power is too much for one person to combat, and those holding the reigns know it. So, the intimidation campaign will continue until the progressive Democratic weaponization of law enforcement is stopped.
In order to fulfill the Biden Administration’s desire to punish their political opponents and fight against domestic terrorism, a willing army of the DOJ and FBI must carry out his orders. Undoubtedly, there is a resemblance between what we are seeing now and the inner workings of crime syndicates. The orders are given from the boss on high and the lieutenants and foot soldiers dutifully oblige, not matter how repugnant they may be.
Those in middle management of the DOJ and FBI along with those lower on the totem pole have lost their connection with ordinary citizens who still believe in the Constitution and the right to engage in political discourse when they see fit. These are the same citizens who live next to the lawyers and agents of the Federal Law Enforcement. These lawyers and agents have families too, yet they are stabbing their neighbors in the back by following the orders of a despot. What happened to these men and women who wear the badge of the FBI or DOJ living in relative comfort in most suburbs across the nation? What happened to their conscience which helps a person distinguish between right and wrong?
So often you hear commentators making the claim that the DOJ and FBI top officials are corrupt along with the caveat their comments are not directed to the rank and file. Why should the rank and file get a pass? They shouldn’t. The rank and file who choose to stay on the job of a corrupt institution become material cooperators in the corruption and the desecration of the Constitution. You can’t have it both ways; either you refuse to be part of a system which is unfairly targeting American Citizens or you are aiding and abetting the corruption. The excuse of obeying orders or saving your job is not an adequate moral response. There were plenty of those kinds of people in Germany during World War II.
FBI and DOJ employees did you forget the oath you swore to your country when you agreed to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic?” The First Amendment to the Constitution which you swore to uphold is quite clear: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Federal Law Officers, where are your consciences? The totalitarian takeover of the country could not continue without your support. Will we ever see the rank and file of the DOJ and FBI upholding their oath to protect the rights of American citizens to exercise their right to free speech? If we don’t, the future of America will be more like China, rather than “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
