Joe Biden keeps preaching “unity” in his first weeks in office.
But now that he’s President, many of his top supporters are letting slip their true intentions.
And now, all hell broke loose after a top Biden backer and former head of the CIA compared conservatives to al-Qaeda.
The Biden administration announced they are launching an all-out war against their political enemies, under the guise of going after “domestic terrorists.” The Deep State is gearing up to seize even more power, so that they can hunt down anyone who opposes their agenda.
Of course, the prospect of a president classifying his own political enemies as “domestic terrorists” should terrify freedom-loving Americans everywhere, but it shouldn’t come as any surprise.
Just like the Patriot Act after 9/11, Deep State spooks love taking advantage of a crisis to expand their power.
In fact, the “domestic terror” bill being pushed through Congress was introduced in 2019 by Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff, who made a name for himself pursuing allegations that former President Trump had colluded with the Russians during the 2016 election – allegations which were dismissed by Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Schiff’s legislation was introduced long before Joe Biden’s swearing into office, but after the events of January 6th, Schiff and his allies appear to be under the impression that the perfect crisis has come along to finally get the bill passed.
Of course, Democrats being in favor of a larger Federal government with more power over Americans across the country is nothing new.
What makes this even worse is that Republicans are now jumping on board.
To date, three Republican House members (Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Don Bacon of Nebraska, and Fred Upton of Michigan) have co-sponsored legislation that would target conservative activists under the guise of fighting “domestic terrorism.”
And most observers fully expect Liz Cheney, who recently voted to impeach Trump in his final days in office and who holds a long history of supporting expansions of the Federal surveillance state, to lead the charge for this bill on the Republican side.
However, opposition to these government crackdowns is coming from both sides of the political spectrum.
Rand Paul, Thomas Massie, and Matt Gaetz have come out solidly against it. And even the left-wing “squad” signed a letter opposing the new law, fearing that these powers could one day be turned on them.
Furthermore, over 135 civil liberties and civil rights organizations, from both sides of the political spectrum, signed a letter on the day of Biden’s inauguration, calling for the defeat of this radical legislation.
But what does the legislation do?
Schiff’s bill would make it a crime to provide “material support” to an organization deemed to be a domestic terrorism organization.
Of course, John Brennan, the former head of the CIA and a leading Biden supporter, stated this week on national TV that “even libertarians” could be classified as domestic terrorists.
Brennan also said “religious extremists” are domestic terrorists on par with al Qaeda. But what does Brennan (who famously voted for the Communist Party as a young adult) consider to be religious extremism?
Critics of the bill fear that simply being an Evangelical Christian might count as religious extremism. Could donating to a conservative Evangelical church land you in the crosshairs of the FBI?
Unless Congress acts to stop this legislation, the public might never know the true extent of it. The intelligence community is famous for operating under the cloak of secrecy.
Just this week, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has been tracking Americans’ cell phone locations for years without a warrant.
These types of programs were supposedly ended in the wake of the Edward Snowden revelations against the Obama administration in 2013, but to no one’s surprise, the Deep State refuses to give up power.
These next few months will be critical to the fate of the U.S. Constitution. It remains to be seen whether Republicans in Congress will step up and protect conservative American citizens from being hunted by the Biden administration, or whether they will roll over and allow it to happen.
