Crossed a threshold

Crossed a threshold,” Carmel Pine Cone – August 12, 2022

A line in the sand has been drawn by the raid on Mar-A-Lago. Those who know their history may recognize the noble but futile historical event to which I refer. Hopefully this does not end the same. There can be no indecisiveness over the events of Aug. 8. Either one is stupidly gloating over an attempt to humiliate and demonize a former president for purely political motives, or one knows full well that the very future of this nation, in truth the world, is absolutely at stake here.

Foreign intruders blatantly trespass across our borders with less concern about apprehension or search than someone who stands against the Democratic Party’s massive abuse towards the well-being and security of the United States. Common, often violent, criminals are more quickly released from arrest than a political opponent’s property is held hostage by Democrat Party goons (aka, the FBI). Ask one of the dull-witted gloaters why Donald Trump’s mean and spiteful regime did not sic the FBI on Hillary Clinton’s private cell phone with its thousands of state department emails never surrendered when she left office. Or why it did not investigate thousands of President Obama’s records which were deleted totally without oversight. Or when Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion of aid to Ukraine to coerce its government to drop corruption charges against Biden’s son, Hunter. There is no answer from them because they have none.

We crossed a threshold on Aug. 8. A threshold to a very dangerous world once occupied by the KGB, the Gestapo, the Khmer Rouge and the Red Guards. We are entering a world where the abuses of the FBI, the DOJ, and the DNC now replace the safeguards of liberty that all those organizations once stood for. Doubt me? Consider the 87,000 new IRS agents approved by a thin Democrat majority vote in Congress. Who do you think they are put there to investigate? The answer is YOU.
