THIRD WORLD JUNTA: The DOJ Just Executed a Surprise Raid on the President's Home

Are we supposed to still be loyal to this Regime?

Are we still fighting the "authoritarians" or nah?


Charlie Kirk
@charliekirk11


The FBI just completed an unannounced raid of President Trump's home at Mar-A-Lago. America is devolving into a Third-World Nation and this latest escalation by Merrick Garland and the Biden Regime should shock every single American--regardless of who you voted for in 2020. Wow.

I don't want to hear another thing about norms, and I don't want to hear a complaint from the left or NeverTrump -- but I repeat myself -- when what they have coming starts coming.

You bought the tickets, settle in for the ride.

NeverTrump Leaps to Endorse!


David French
@DavidAFrench


A note about "banana republics."

Yes, corrupt regimes politicize prosecutions. But corrupt regimes also permit powerful people to break the law with impunity.

If the legal and evidentiary grounds for a search exist, then even a former president *should* be searched.

David French has believed and supported every single anti-democracy hoax operation his Deep State pals have against a president the public voted for but whom the Deep State "vetoed."

Why stop now?

He's "fighting authoritarianism," you know.

40 They need to keep up appearances with their co-religionists. This is why the left still goes on about Russia Collusion, Impeachment, the phone call, and the January 6 Insurrection.

Right, a lot of this has to do with shoring up votes on their side and keeping the donations flowing. They have to be seen DOING something.

He has the ability and right to determine what is and isn't classified, and his ruling tops any other in this matter. He is the CinC.

Regardless, I cannot imagine him taking or keeping anything incriminating. And if he did, his safe at Mar a Lago is not where it is kept.

236 Well, I guess it’s here. The event that we all knew was coming, but it kinda seemed like it would be SO bad, that we didn’t really believe it would ever actually arrive. Maybe we could get a few more years of domestic tranquility (in a relative sense, anyway), and we weren’t REALLY going over the waterfall.

I bet the more realistic, canny, logical residents of Charleston, South Carolina in 1861 felt something like this when they heard a single cannon shot from the harbor, and then a massive bombardment started, and their lives would be over as they once knew them, starting right then.

Democrats were responsible for that calamity then, too.

Well, folks, our Fort Sumter may haul down the flag at some point, and the destruction will be like nothing known before in our history.

But even if many of us are not around to see it, we will all be there when they stack arms and furl their flags.

He said that former president s have security clearances and are legally permitted to posses classified materials.

Yeah I can't imagine what kind of documents he might have which they consider wrong for the president to have. The only other alternative I can think of is that it has something to do with classified conversations and information on January 6th that they were not permitted to simply subpoena him for? So they raided the place.

But again, they have to get permission from a federal judge for that kind of action, and it has to be in the district that the raid takes place; they cannot just shop up a DC judge to rubber stamp everything.

"Of the more than 200 defendants to be sentenced, approximately 100 received terms of imprisonment.

No former president has ever been federally prosecuted by the Justice Department. Attorney General Merrick Garland said Wednesday that Jan. 6 is “the most wide-ranging investigation and the most important investigation that the Justice Department has ever entered into.”

Charge PDT, prosecute him, find him to have Willfully committed certain federal violations and he, too, could be punished as the lowly followers.

Syria too. Some cons out there somehow had a hard-on for going after Assad too, even after the Iraq debacle. How that is possible is only explainable by the "stupid or liar" formulation. This person was otherwise smart but man is being any sort of neocon at this point really really stupid.

521 A precedent has now been set. I see three possible outcomes:
1. The government produces incontrovertible evidence of malfeasance in the part of President Trump, evidence so devastating that the most ardent Trump supporters turn their backs on him.
2. The next Republican President proceeds similarly against Biden, Pelosi and other corrupt Democrats.
3. There never is another Republican President or a Republican House or Senate, as the Democrats realize the results of applying this precedent to their own leaders.

To my mind, options 2 and 3 are life-threatening to the Republic. I find myself hoping that option 1 is the case. I just don't believe it is.

551 WA-03 GOP Primary:

GOP challenger Joe Kent has now taken the lead over RINO impeacher Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler for the first time!

Kent now leads JHB by 816 votes.

When vote counting stopped on Friday, JHB led by 259 votes.

Granted its just a primary, but if Kent wins it, it will be the first time in my memory that a recount in this State has gone to the republican.

While they encourage and make way for a "million man march", they'd roadblock us in Topeka, in Boise and a thousand other junctions. The surge of vehicles would be blocked at every turn, and well before they could "form up" in large enough numbers to present A FORCE.

Conversely. Lots n' Lots n' Lotsa Feddle Buildings out there. In damn near any sizeable city. Each has an office of damn near every Feddle Agency in the Alphabet. Siege and take those, and damn near all Feddle power in the Hinterlands stops on a dime.

- "The FBI doesn't do something like this unless it's a slam-dunk, they have a 96% conviction rate"

I seem to remember that somewhere.

I'm sure there were plenty of good Lutherans in Germany who were surprised Jesus didn't return to rescue them from their evil government. God may have eventually sent the Allies to do it.

This is pretty much the end game. They are hoping to find something, anything, to stop him from running in 2024. It is desperation.

They knew they were going to lose to him, the polls are pretty clear.

Now they have to find something, because this just guaranteed a Trump victory in 2024. Not that he wasn't going to win anyway. But this just locked in the votes of 45% of the electorate, and pushed them to "crawl over glass to vote for Trump" voters.

The FBI raid on President Trump's home is an unprecedented political weaponization of the Justice Department. They've been after President Trump as a candidate, as President, and now as a former President. Using the criminal justice system in this manner is un-American.

The raid by the FBI is political. There is no way to make this a legitimate raid. I don't care if the FBI finds a Russian hookers tied up in the basement of Mar A Lago, it's still political.

"Eric Trump told Fox News there was 'nothing in the safe' and confirmed the raid was tied to the National Archives. He called it 'outrageous' and said has to have come from the president 'and/or someone in White House.'

But President Joe Biden's White House had no heads up on the matter. Senior White House officials found out about it via Twitter, the New York Times reported.(huh ???)

Lara Trump told Fox News 'look, my father-in-law, as anybody knows, who's been around him a lot, loves to save things like newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, photographs, documents that he had every authority ... to take from the White House.'

She called the raid an attempt to hurt him as 'he's going to announce any day that he's running for president in 2024.' "

There is a procedure for that - a court order to produce material. You raid people that you've convinced a Federal judge is 1) a flight risk 2) is involved in a criminally ongoing enterprise or 3) likely to destroy material relevant to a criminal investigation.

A former President fits none of these - a federal judge had to sign off on this warrant. God help that idiot if this turns out to be just a panty raid to threaten the rubes...

They lost SCOTUS. Public perception of their media organs and the national security apparatus are in the toilet - the propaganda is no longer effective. They have no bench for the 2024 election. They are going to lose bigger in 2022 than we thought even just two months ago. They have very strong pushback from big states that can control DC's response - Florida and Texas with more red states lining up behind them. Federalism is back in a big way - they are going to increasingly lose more power.

They have the perception of power. It's a facade. It's crumbling.

790 If the governors want to get tough, they can start making being a Fed in their state a living hell. First, cancel all Fed/state/local law enforcement joint initiatives. Let the ATF/FBI/DOJ show up on someone's doorstep all on their own. Then send the cops to properly vet the Feds. Meanwhile traffic laws, building codes, and state taxes should be enforced ruthlessly to-the-letter for all Federal employees. Make it known that local businesses catering to the Feds might have issues. Oh, and local crimes against the Feds are no-bail issues.

Yeah, that whole dying in bed thing doesn't appear to be in the cards for many of us, but none of that 'Why me?' from me, which is what people often ask in calamitous times. I've had a challenging, interesting life, one with a few regrets, sure, but who doesn't? So no, no complaints on that score.

Maybe this persecution of Trump is intended as a provocation, a way to rile the conservative base to the point of violence. I can imagine Biden--at the bidding of his handlers--declaring a state of national insurrection and suspending elections and ordering arrests using that justification.

We'll see soon enough, I suppose.

And the Dieppe raid was a tragedy and disaster, but was not entirely in vain, in terms of the impact on Allied self-awareness regarding the preparation and planning that would be needed for what became D-Day. Lessons were learned, at great bloody cost.

835 Dieppe was a test to see if a port could be taken and held for the full invasion and to placate the Soviets. A German naval group accidentally ran into the invaders; the Commandos on the two flanks landed too early, alerting the Germans; the round pebble beach untracked the Churchills [I think they arrived late too]; I think it was the largest fighter battle of the [European?] war as the RAF/RCAF tried to cover the operation.

So, for 6/6/44 seizing a port wasn't feasible; sand beaches; bomb the shit out of everything first; Mulberry Harbours; etc. and it had the Germans convinced that the invasion would be at the shortest distance -- the Pas de Calais.

According to Stevenson, pp423+, operation JUBILEE, two radar experts were sent with accompanying commando teams to get/inspect the German cavity magnetron, and steal some of their equipment. Then, blow it up under cover of bombing runs during the raid.

They also cut land lines, to force the Germans to use radio, so they can compare data to determine the progress of their research.

Apparently, Frank Koons, from Iowa, was on that raid, and was the first American to kill a German in WWII.

881 They already raided Trump's lawyers and other associates, stole "attorney/client privileged info", fabricated Trump/Russia "evidence" using assets to attempt to entrap several Trump associates ... They are a full blown Criminal Operation.

So how to stop them is the question. Will they place fake evidence at the scene? Likely ... hopefully Trump has cameras right in the safe .. but not sure that would stop them from claiming documents were in some folder they pulled out.

Doesn't matter what it says. According to Fox News, the agents searched every office area in the residence and took every document they found. As I write this, everything is being photocopied or copied if an electronic file on pc's, thumb drives, cd's, etc. Even if SCOTUS told FBI tomorrow to return everything and destroy any copies made, Wray will keep a copy.

Posted by: Stuck in a Blue State at August 08, 2022 10:26 PM (/g1fY)

920 Marc Elias was on Twitter giving away what this is all about.

Apparently violating the records law makes someone ineligible to hold office. They really are that desperate to keep him out of office. All they need is one agent to drop a document somewhere and bingo...

30,000 classified e-mails on an illegal server and Hillary gets to scrub it. Obama carted off all of his records and did not let the National Archives have them. Hunter had child porn on his laptop and he and Joe sold out the US through influence peddling just as a matter of course --- and not one of them is raided. They are rubbing our noses in the double standard and daring someone to do something about it.

I don't know what is going to happen, but none of this is going to end how the left/GOPe thinks it is going to end. We will be lucky to avoid sectarian violence and the country splitting apart now that there are no non-corrupt institutions to turn to in order to seek justice.

I hope all Trump had in his safe was a copy of Hunter's hard drive and a note that said, "Since you dumb bastards can't seem to find this, I put it in the one place I knew you would look."
