These are challenging discussions, and they're certainly not pleasant given the heinous nature of the American Civil War. That conflict remains our nation's bloodiest war. It was also arguably our most moral struggle, which began when Confederate troops fired on Fort Sumter in South Carolina. After that attack, the Rubicon had been crossed, and both sides prepared for armed conflict. Did that just happen with the FBI's raid on Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence yesterday evening? Given how America is split, it wouldn't have shocked me if a civil war-like event occurred in my lifetime. Hopefully, I'd be almost dead, but the chances of that happening earlier increased with the latest activity from the Department of Justice.
For an absurd amount of time, we didn't even know why FBI agents busted into the domicile of the former president. 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.
What is clear is that the rule of law is relative under the governance of Democrats. They will hurl all the accusations against us conservatives about jailing political opponents being a characteristic of banana republics. That became a talking point in the waning days of the 2016 election when Trump mentioned possibly going after Hillary Clinton for her shady deeds with her foundation, which arguably was a slush fund and favor bank for the wealthy and well-connected. Trump opted not to do that, but Joe Biden decided to send it on this front, unleashing the Justice Department's full force to find something that could bar the former president from running again.
The shot has been fired across the bow. No one believes this is over documents not turned over to the National Archives. You'd have to be smoking Hunter Biden's crack to settle on that reasoning. This raid is the culmination of needless attempts to indict Trump on criminal charges, whether that be tax evasion, treason, or fomenting rebellion via January 6 and coming up short every time for the past six years.
Congress couldn't do it, and neither could the media. The endless pool of Democrat lawyers couldn't find anything either, so unleash the party's quasi-hit squad, the FBI, to dig up the dirt. The FBI manufactured evidence to secure FISA spy warrants on Trump campaign officials, like Carter Page. They spied on the Trump campaign via Crossfire Hurricane. And this agency ran with a Russian collusion investigation that they knew was fake. It was an opposition research project funded by the Clinton campaign, so it wouldn't shock me if agents planted evidence against Trump at Mar-a-Lago to secure indictments. If we know anything by now, the credibility of the FBI hit the negative years ago.
The Democrats' decision to use their institutional power to go after political opponents could be a Rubicon moment. It could be the 21st Century Fort Sumter event because anything the FBI does now will be viewed rightfully with deep suspicion and disbelief. The DOJ can do nothing to improve its image with half the country. With law and order directly applied based on political bias, there's ample reason for millions of Americans to never trust federal law enforcement again with potentially deadly consequences. Biden and the Democrats set this nation on a course for civil war. That's not hyperbole. When you turn the nation's institutions against people with whom you disagree politically, and those people see it happening in real-time, fear of government skyrockets, and confrontation increases. With a nation loaded with gun owners, Biden's healing appears to be paradoxically grounded in slash and burn, and that's not a symptom of long COVID.
