Needed: Resolute American Patriots

I am deeply concerned. My phone blew up Monday evening because, as you know, I was a Congressional Representative in South Florida. Mar-a-Lago is a place I have been to many times, and it was part of the district that I had the honor and privilege of representing.

A former President of the United States of America had his private residence raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation! I grew up watching “The FBI.” Remember Ephraim Zimbalist, Jr. on Sunday nights on ABC? The FBI was a respected and lauded organization then; now it is a politicized, weaponized organization.

When you have Karine Jean-Pierre — the mouthpiece of the Biden administration — saying that the President didn’t know anything about this, that no one in the White House knew anything about the raid beforehand, that’s not good. If he did know about it and approved it, that’s still not good. Either we have rogue agents in the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or we have a willful targeting of a former President and potential presidential candidate for 2024. That’s not how we roll in the United States of America! That’s the essence of tyranny. That’s the essence of fascism. That’s the essence of Marxism. That’s the East German Stasi police state.

Tuesday morning, when I woke up to go out for my morning run, it was a completely
different America, and it is an America I never thought that I would live in. I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic. I never thought we would so clearly see enemies of the Constitution of the United States of America right here.

It’s not just the weaponizing of the Department of Justice, which started in the Obama administration with Eric Holder, but we have seen the weaponizing of the Internal Revenue Service. This Inflation Reduction Act has 87,000 new IRS agents out there purchasing ammunition. Why? That should be a concern. If you want to reduce inflation, reverse the policies of these past 18 months to 1.6 to 1.8 percent inflation, not 9.1 percent. Why are we spending $80 billion dollars to hire 87,000 new IRS agents? They say they are only going to go after people that are making more than 400 000 a year. You don’t need 87,000 new IRS agents to go after so small a segment of the American economic strata. There’s something amiss here. Let’s not forget how, under Barack Obama, the IRS was weaponized. Lois Lerner went after the Tea Party Movement. No one said anything.

How many emails did Hillary Clinton destroy? How many government devices did she destroy? She had classified information. Top Secret Secure Compartmented Information (TSSCI) on a private server in her own residence. The FBI never showed up at her home.

Churches are being vandalized. Pro-life centers are being burned to the ground. The Department of Justice and the FBI, I guess they just don’t have time to deal with that. But, they had time to raid the private residence of a former President.

Here’s the bottom line: they’ll come after anybody. If you don’t realize that they will come after you; if you don’t realize that 87,000 new IRS agents isn’t just for people making over $400,000 a year. It’s meant for anyone that they can go after, just like the IRS did with the Tea Party Movement.

The battle lines have been drawn. There is an ideological Civil War that has happened here in the United States of America. The other side has shown that they are willing to do what every single authoritarian autocratic dictatorship has done. First and foremost, they disarmed the people, turning them from citizens to subjects.

The GOP needs a strategic plan, a concerted Grassroots strategic plan. We need you to get involved. We need you engaged in this upcoming midterm election cycle. We need you to be poll workers. We need you to be poll watchers. We need people out there, with eyes out to make sure that there are no nefarious actions going on.

You need to be resolute. You need to be focused. You need to be talking to people and getting them to understand how critical a moment this is in the life-cycle of the longest-running Constitutional Republic that this world has ever known.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation the Department of Justice have weaponized themselves against the American people. And, if President Joe Biden knew nothing about this, who did? Who sat down and said, “Yep this is cool; go ahead and do it”? We are going to find out.

Remember this day, the day that the progressive socialist left, the Marxists, the statists, the communists in the United States of America fully declared war against the American people by going after a former President in his private residence.

I did not take an oath to see this happen in my country. I will stand up and push back against this. I will use my voice. I will not surrender. I will not retreat. The only thing that I know is victory, and the victory starts in these midterm elections. We have got to win the House, and we have got to win the Senate. My message to Republicans in office: find your big boy pants. Now is not the time to back down. Merrick Garland needs to be brought before you. Mayorkas, the Secretary of Homeland Security — who continuously says that the border is secure — he needs to be brought before you. And, if need be, the Constitution gives you the ability to impeach and remove these individuals. It has to be done because the American people deserve better. The people that have fought and died for this country, and the people that have come to this country because they wanted to escape the exact same type of Banana Republic tactics we saw on Monday, we owe it to them. We owe it to our children and grandchildren, that they will grow up in liberty and freedom and not tyranny and subjugation.

I remain Steadfast and Loyal to the Constitution of the United States of America, and I pledge my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor to always uphold it.
