After they murdered unarmed Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt in cold blood on January 6, 2021, we have now learned that the roughly 30 FBI agents who raided Trump’s home were authorized to use deadly force as they rifled through Melania Trump’s wardrobe.

Those defending this assault as “standard operating procedure” are part of the problem. And the problem is that, as we celebrate Memorial Day, we must understand the nature of the war being waged by the federal government on the American people. It has been decades in the making.

These are dangerous times. Trump is being portrayed by the liberal media and its Democratic Party allies as a threat to democracy, creating an atmosphere in which assassination plots can be carried out for the benefit of the Deep State and another Trump enemy, the United Nations, under the control of China, Russia, and Iran.

On Memorial Day, let us remember that Ashli Babbitt, who was unarmed and murdered by the Capitol Police on January 6, 2021, in cold blood, was a military vet and Trump supporter.

In that protest, more than 500 people have been sentenced to prison. Yet, many of them were invited and escorted into the Capitol. It was at this time that Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old California woman, a 14-year veteran of the Air Force, and a UNARMED Trump supporter, was surrounded and killed by a U.S. Capitol Police officer. He was NOT prosecuted or even reprimanded for this murder.

Equally shocking, we just learned that the search warrant for the raid on Trump’s home was, essentially, a license to kill that included a medic to take care of the wounded and dying. The liberal media claim this is much ado about nothing.

But remember that an FBI sniper killed Randy Weaver’s wife in the 1992 Ruby Ridge operation. She was killed as she was holding her baby daughter in her arms. Weaver’s 14-year-old son was shot to death by federal Marshalls carrying machine guns. Ruby Ridge is the scandal involving federal agencies such as the FBI and ATF assaulting a so-called “white supremacist” living in Idaho who had been set up on a charge of selling an illegal weapon, a sawed-off shotgun.

This time, they tried to set up Trump, first with manipulation of the crowd on January 6, 2021, and then as Trump prepared to run for the presidency again.

Ruby Ridge was followed by the federal siege of the Waco religious compound on April 19, 1993, when more than eighty men, women, and children were shot or burned to death. Federal agencies attacked the compound of a religious cult, the Branch Davidians, on the pretext that children were being abused. They could have apprehended the leader of the religious compound without killing all those people. It was another demonstration of their power.

Now they are using their power against Trump.

But Trump also faces foreign threats.

Remember that, in a threat personally directed against President Trump, the head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps promised revenge for the U.S. assassination that Trump ordered of an Iranian terrorist, Qassem Soleimani.

But that’s not all. In 2023, a radical woman named Pascale Ferrier pleaded guilty to sending deadly Ricin letters to Trump and had a loaded gun, 294 rounds of ammunition, a fake I.D., and a knife. She had made postings to “kill Trump.”

James Hodgkinson, who opened fire on a group of Republican members of Congress in June 2017, was a “Bolshevik Bernie” Sanders supporter who declared he wanted to “terminate” Trump and the Republicans.

We must conclude that federal agencies, left-wing extremists, and Iranian terrorists are targeting President Trump by using KGB-style tactics and creating an atmosphere in which death threats against our former president are encouraged and assassination plots are carried out.

As we honor those who honorably served our country in foreign wars, remember the domestic wars being waged by the federal government against the people of the United States.

As we witness the assault on Trump’s home and the mass imprisonment of those protesting the stolen election of 2020, let us remember the scandals of the FBI/ATF armed assaults on Randy Weaver’s home and family at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, and the Waco religious compound in Texas.

These are the templates for what is happening today.
