When the FBI raided Donald Trump’s home on Monday, a key aspect of what made the United States of America great and free has been lost, and likely cannot be recovered. John Adams and Thomas Jefferson detested one another for years before their eventual reconciliation, but neither one used the agencies of the U.S. government to hound, persecute or discredit the other. Other bitter political opponents throughout the history of the republic have never before used the government’s own mechanisms of justice to do injustice to their foes. Joe Biden, Merrick Garland, and their henchmen have brought America to a new phase of its history, and it is not likely to be one that is marked by respect for the rule of law or defense of the rights of individual citizens. Instead, we are entering an ugly age of authoritarianism, in which the brute force of the state is used to bend the people to the will of the tyrant.

Trump announced on Monday, “These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.”

The 45th president is not given to understatement, but the FBI raid on his home is much more than just unnecessary and inappropriate. It is criminal. The FBI that was heavily involved in trying to frame and destroy Trump in the Russian Collusion hoax is now trying once again to destroy him, apparently by claiming that he improperly took classified material from the White House. They never cared when Hillary Clinton misused classified material on a grand scale; what is the difference? They’re also likely trying to find something to link him more firmly to the January 6 “insurrection” that never was. The Left’s January 6 narrative has been full of holes from the beginning: Trump told the demonstrators to proceed peacefully, the people who entered the Capitol had no weapons, and no one had sketched out any kind of plan to do what the Left continues to claim that Trump was trying to do all along, overthrow the government and rule as a dictator.

But Joe Biden’s handlers are desperately afraid that Trump will return to the White House on January 20, 2025 and that things will go harder for them next time than they did during his first term. They’re afraid that a vengeful Trump will do a genuine and thorough housecleaning of the desperately corrupt and compromised Washington bureaucracy, and that many of them will, quite justly, end up out of power, and some of them will, even more justly, end up in prison. So they’ve determined to pre-emptively do the same to Trump. If they can’t actually find anything to prosecute him for (and Lord knows they’ve tried, this is the most investigated and poked and prodded and scrutinized man in American history, and still those who hate him have nothing), then at very least they hope to taint Trump so completely in the eyes of the distracted and indifferent public that they will have a fighting chance in 2024.

This is banana republic stuff. This is the kind of thing that moved Woodrow Wilson to intervene militarily in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua, explaining: “We are friends of constitutional government in America; we are more than its friends, we are its champions. I am going to teach the South American republics to elect good men.” Wilson was an authoritarian scoundrel and one of the worst presidents we have ever endured, but much as he hated Theodore Roosevelt and feared that he would be reelected to the presidency in 1920 (instead, Roosevelt died in 1919), Wilson never had rogue government agents raid Roosevelt’s home looking for something they could use to pin some crime on him.

Merrick Garland recently signaled that something like this was in the offing when he emphasized that no one was above the law and anyone could be prosecuted. No one is above that law, that is, except Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden, all the FBI officials who have been implicated in the Russian Collusion hoax, and all the other Leftists who have escaped and will continue to escape prosecution because they hold what the elites consider to be acceptable political opinions.

The two-tier justice system that aggressively prosecutes conservatives while turning a blind eye to Leftists who have committed similar or worse crimes is now out in the open. Trump did nothing, but the FBI will find some crime for which the Justice Department will prosecute him. Hillary Clinton and Hunter Biden did a great deal, but none of it matters to corrupt officials who share their worldview.

The lesson is clear: in America today, in the corrupt kleptocracy of Joe Biden, you have to have the right opinions. Then all doors will open for you and you can even break laws with impunity, and have no fear of prosecution. But if you dare to dissent from the opinions of the elites, prepare to be hounded by the new super-IRS and the weaponized FBI, and you’ll face raids, prison, and who knows what else is coming.

Many conservatives are saying that this ensures Trump’s victory in 2024. But what makes them think that this corrupt regime will allow the man whom they fear and hate above all others to return to the White House? It’s clear now. They will stop at nothing.

This is no longer a republic, except of the banana variety. It may be a republic again someday, but for now, the great American experiment is over. Born July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia, died August 8, 2022, in Mar-A-Lago, at the hands of Joe Biden, Merrick Garland, and Christopher Wray.

FBI Raids Trump’s Home at Mar-A-Lago

In a statement released on Monday, Donald Trump revealed that the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago home.

“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump said. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.”

Trump believes that the raid, which he called “political persecution,” is part of the Democrats’ plan to weaponize the Justice Department to prevent him from running for president again in 2024, and hurt Republicans in midterm elections in November.

“They even broke into my safe!” Trump said. “It is political targeting at the highest level!”

Trump was not done slamming the raid, which he compared to Watergate. “What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee?” he asked. “Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.”

He then pointed out that he’s been the target of government persecution for years, “with the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and so much more, it just never ends. It is political targeting at the highest level!”

Trump also pointed out the difference between how he is being treated and how his former rival was treated. “Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress. Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable,” Trump pointed out. “She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House.”

A raid as consequential as this most certainly had to be approved at the highest levels of the Department of Justice. Attorney General Merrick Garland will have to answer for what is most certainly a gross abuse of power by a Democrat-controlled federal government.

Garland has proven to be one of the most partisan individuals to hold the office. Under Garland’s leadership, the FBI conducted searches of Project Veritas over the alleged theft of Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley’s diary, and threatened states that pass voter integrity laws over bogus allegations of minority voter suppression. Garland has also abused his power to protect Biden and his allies and targets Biden’s enemies whenever possible. He even declined to launch an investigation into COVID-19 nursing home deaths in New York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, protecting the Democrat governors of those states.

Garland has also shown a grudge against Donald Trump. Not only did he allow disgraced FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to win back his full pension, he also allowed for Donald Trump’s private tax records to be released to Congress despite Congress having no legitimate claim to access them.

In recent weeks, Garland refused to respond to the assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh by a radical left-wing abortion activist. Not only did he refuse to remove the protestors who were illegally assembled outside of Kavanaugh’s home before the assassination attempt, but he refused to after the attempt as well.

Republicans in Congress will most certainly demand answers from Garland on this raid.

After firing unvaccinated workers, Hershey’s says it can’t make enough candy for Halloween; blames Putin

(Natural News) If there is even still a recognizable America later this fall, you can expect to see a whole lot less candy in your child’s Halloween bag.

According to reports, The Hershey Company is facing “capacity constraints” that will greatly reduce the output of candy in the coming months, resulting in demand exceeding supply. And get this: Hershey’s is blaming Russian President Vladimir Putin for its self-induced problems.

Earlier in the year, you may recall, Hershey’s fired all of its unvaccinated employees, which created a worker shortage. Now, company CEO Michele Buck wants to blame Putin, “supply chain issues,” and everything else other than herself for Hershey’s going down the tubes.

Buck made these and other false accusations against others for her company’s fate during a recent quarterly earnings call with investors. In a nutshell, Hershey’s will not have the capacity to maintain output in anticipation of its busiest holiday because it previously engaged in medical fascism against its un-jabbed employees.

“We had a strategy of prioritizing every day, on-shelf availability,” Buck stated during the call, explaining that the company uses the same equipment to produce both everyday and specialty holiday items. (Related: Remember when Hershey’s was caught engaging in illegal price fixing?)

“It was a tough decision to balance that with the seasons, but we thought that was really important. And so that was a choice that we needed to make. We had [an] opportunity to deliver more Halloween [candy], but we weren’t able to supply that.”

How is it Russia’s fault that Hershey’s fired all of its unvaccinated employees?

Consumer engagement with Hershey’s, all things considered, is expected to remain high, according to Buck. The problem is that the company no longer has the capacity to deliver, thanks to the unvaccinated employees it “separated from the company.”

From now on, Buck indicated, Hershey’s “will not be able to fully meet consumer demand due to capacity restraints” – a deflective way of admitting that she and others in the executive leadership team at Hershey’s screwed up big time.

Buck expects “high single-digit growth” for Hershey’s during Halloween and Christmas, which she says she feels “really good about.” Perhaps there will even be more capacity during that time, she hinted.

Is Hershey’s planning to hire more workers to meet demand? Or perhaps a better way of wording that question is: Will Hershey’s be able to find anyone who isn’t already sick and dying from Fauci Flu shots who is willing to work for the company going into the holiday season?

Buck seems to think this might happen, all while she shifts the blame onto Putin and the “Russian invasion” for her company’s decline.

“I think generally we continue to see struggles across the supply chain,” Buck stated.

“We’re now starting to see bigger concerns relative to scarcity of ingredients needing to leverage different suppliers at higher cost and price points in order to secure production.”

A whopping 10 percent of annual sales at Hershey’s occur during the Halloween season.

If the company is unable to meet demand – which seems likely – then it will face a major revenue hit, which is certainly of interest to shareholders.

“This is the same company that about 15 years ago almost shut down because it couldn’t figure out how to put in a new enterprise system (SAP),” wrote a commenter at The Epoch Times.

“I’m sure that Nestlé and Mars will figure out how to take advantage of this company’s incompetence.”

Another wrote that because Hershey’s fired its unvaccinated employees in a demonstration of medical tyranny, consumers should do the same by firing Hershey’s and not buying any more of its products.

SUPPLY CHAIN COLLAPSE! – A Globalist Agenda – From The Climate HOAX To Civil Unrest!

Josh Sigurdson reports on the long-thought-out modus operandi of the establishment as the supply chain collapses and the globalists come in with their "replacement." Technocracy.

As central bank digital currencies around the world are readied and attached to social credit and carbon credit systems, magically, the world is being hit by all of the crises that would lead to such tyranny as a so-called solution.

This is a planned collapse. The hope of the state is dependency and with that compliance to a new level of tyranny, the likes of which we've never seen before.

In this video, we talk about the planned collapse of the supply chain, the false flag blackouts, food and power rationing, and more.

“Inflation Reduction Act” Is “Economic Malpractice”

“Inflation Reduction Act” Is “Economic Malpractice”

On Sunday afternoon, it took all 50 Democratic senators, along with Vice President Kamala Harris, to pass their deceptively named Inflation Reduction Act (H.R. 5376) by a 51–50 vote, sending it to the House. The bill at one time was thought to have been “dead in the water,” but gained life with the support of Senators Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.V.).

Today’s sky-high inflation is largely caused by last year’s Democratic spending of $1.9 trillion in the taxpayer-funded American Rescue Plan. Spending another $740 billion on climate and healthcare boondoggles with this bill will only accelerate inflation.  

Political analyst David Harsanyi notes, “The Inflation Reduction Act is to inflation what the Affordable Care Act — which doubled premium costs — was to health care insurance.”

Even Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who voted for the new bill, complained that it doesn’t do what its title claims — namely, reduce inflation — referring to it as the  “so-called” Inflation Reduction Act. “I say so-called by the way, because according to the CBO and other economic organizations that have studied this bill, it will, in fact, have a minimal impact on inflation,” Sanders said on Saturday.

The Inflation Reduction Act includes hundreds of billions for boondoggle “green energy” projects and hundreds of billions in tax increases — all of which will fuel inflation, not reduce it. Democrats have claimed this bill as a big win, especially for their leftist constituents, but it’s a big loser for American consumers and taxpayers, who will actually be paying for corporate tax increases and government redistribution of tax benefits for this bill’s pet projects.

Here are key points from the Democrats’ own summary of the Inflation Reduction Act:

• Enacts historic deficit reduction to fight inflation

• Lowers energy costs, increases cleaner production, and reduces carbon emissions by roughly 40 percent by 2030

• Allows Medicare to negotiate drug prices and caps out-of-pocket costs to $2,000

• Lowers ACA health care premiums for millions of Americans

• Make biggest corporations and ultra-wealthy pay their fair share

• There are no new taxes on families making $400,000 or less and no new taxes on small businesses — we are closing tax loopholes and enforcing the tax code.

In a recent interview on Fox & Friends Weekend, American Legislative Exchange Council economist Jonathan Williams hammered Democrats’ latest effort to combat inflation with the Inflation Reduction Act, arguing that raising taxes and increasing spending is “economic malpractice.”

Williams shared, “What we need is [to go] in the opposite direction and actually cut spending in Washington. It’s clear we don’t have a problem with the lack of tax revenue here. We’ve hit record tax revenue numbers time and time again in recent years, but we just spend faster than the taxes are coming in. And this is a huge problem here.”

All the Republican senators pushed hard against the bill, including Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) who blasted Biden’s $369 billion on “climate” and $433 billion in new spending: “This bill is going to fuel even more inflation. It’s not going to fight inflation, no matter what Joe Manchin says. And it is going to kill jobs by raising taxes on businesses. And by the way, those taxes will also fuel more inflation because businesses will pass tax hikes along to consumers. The last thing we should be doing is putting another trillion-dollar tax and spending bill into an economy that has both record-high inflation and a recession. That is something that only Joe Biden could have accomplished.”

If this bill becomes law, The Heritage Foundation estimates: “Taxpayers with adjusted gross incomes below $75,000 would ultimately shoulder an estimated $136 billion of new revenues from the corporate minimum tax and the IRS enforcement provisions, or about 26% of the total. Indeed, the revenues would fall disproportionately hard on taxpayers making less than $25,000 per year.”

What will the House of Representatives do with the Senate’s Inflation Reduction Act? If they pass it as it stands now, Americans will continue to suffer under Biden’s leftist regime. And with November elections nearing, Democrats in the House will need to consider their electability as their constituents decide if they deserve to remain in office. We can only hope this bill is too much for House Democrats to pass.
