Two days ago, Joe Biden's Department of Justice, convicted 6 pro-life activists for praying outside of an abortion clinic in Tennessee, on March 5, 2021, for violating the FACE Act. They are all facing potentially 11 years in Federal Prison. Their crime is praying. Their crime is believing in God, believing that God is the ultimate authority in the universe, and not Joe Biden, not Merrick Garland and not the United States government. They believe in God, and they must be punished. They believe that human life in all its forms is sacred and must be protected, so they need to be silenced. They believe that neither the state nor the individual can determine whether another human being is inherently valuable, is worthy of being protected, or should live or die, so they must go to prison.
Why is it that 6 people who prayed outside an abortion clinic are facing 11 years in prison, but most of the people who burned large sections of our major cities to the ground in 2020, were let out on cashless bail and had their charges dripped? Why is it that over 1,000 protestors at the Capitol on January 6, have been arrested, held without bail, charged, convicted and imprisoned – most of whom committed no acts of violence, they merely trespassed at the Capitol after the Capitol police opened the doors for them, while BLM and Antifa rioters who attacked the police and secret service personnel protecting the White House on June 1, 2020, never spend a day behind bars?
What Biden’s DOJ is doing is painfully obvious. They are making every political, social or religious belief that they disagree with, illegal. Biden’s DOJ has charged more pro-life activists under the FACE Act than pro-abortion activists, despite the fact that 70 percent of abortion-related threats of violence in the United States have been against pro-life groups. It is not the actions or even the threats that Biden’s DOJ targets, it’s the ideology of the group. Last year, it was revealed that the FBI field offices in Richmond, Milwaukee, and Portland, targeted traditional Catholics as potential violent extremists. If you attend a traditional Latin Mass, then the FBI will view you as a potential terrorist. At the same time that Joe Biden’s FBI was designating Catholic churches as breeding grounds for terrorism, Biden was taking the Iranian-backed Houthis off the FBI’s terror watchlist which allowed them access to the global banking system, to travel freely, to engage in business with allies, to get funded by Iran while preventing the United States from taking out their leadership.
And what was the result of Joe Biden’s actions? According to the U.S. State Department, “since November, the Houthis have launched unprecedented attacks against international maritime vessels in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, as well as military forces positioned in the area to defend the safety and security of commercial shipping.” When was the last time traditional Catholics have committed acts of international terrorism? Never. The Houthis have been terrorizing the Middle East for the last 20 years in places such as Yemen, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Their two favorites slogans to chant as a group in public is “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”. But Joe Biden didn’t view them as a threat to America. It was the 82-year-old woman kneeling in the front of the church at 6 AM on a Sunday morning praying her rosaries who is the real threat. This is what happens when a President puts his politics first and America last.
Joe Biden does not care about protecting America. Our southern border is wide open. 7 million foreign nationals have walked into our country since Biden was inaugurated, most of whom are single males between the ages of 16 and 30. In his first week in office, Biden signed dozens of executive orders which reversed all of Donald Trump’s border security measures. And the result? The Mexican drug cartels control our southern border, human trafficking across our southern border is at an all-time high, deadly drugs like fentanyl has been flowing freely across our border at unprecedented levels, and over one hundred thousand Americans are dying each year from drug overdoses. And what is Joe Biden’s response to deal with this crisis? He not only sued the State of Texas which took measures in its own hands to secure the southern border in its state to protect its citizens, but Biden is now threatening military action against the Texas State National Guard because they are protecting Texas’ border and saving lives.
So, Biden’s DOJ isn’t trying to send 6 people who prayed outside of an abortion clinic to prison for 11 years to protect the public. Nothing the Biden administration has done in his 3 plus years in office has been meant to protect the America people. In fact, his policies have made American citizens more vulnerable attack, injury and even death. It is estimated that hundreds, if not thousands of potential terrorists have entered our country through our southern border under Joe Biden’s watch, and he refuses to take executive action to at least try to secure the border.
So, by sending 6 abortion protesters to prison, Joe Biden is not protecting the public, he is protecting a woman’s right to have a doctor tear the baby that is growing inside her womb, limb from limb, or to inject saline into that baby so it burns to death from the inside out. Those acts are what Joe Biden is protecting by throwing those 6 people in prison for praying outside a clinic where those atrocities were occurring daily. Everything that Joe Biden is about is death, whether it is his stance on abortion, soft on terrorism, soft on violent crime, opening the borders, enabling the drug cartels, a war in Ukraine, wars in the Middle East, turning a blind eye to homelessness, creating poverty inducing inflation, everything that he touches brings more death and more destruction to our country, to the world. Everything that Biden and the Democrats falsely claimed that Trump would bring to America, Biden has brought and then some.
