The slippery slope to tyranny

The FBI raid of Donald Trump’s home should be a wake up call to all Americans that the Democratic Party leadership is intentional about reimagining the homeland into a statist nation. It is a slippery slope to tyranny. From David Koresh and Elian Gonzalez during the Clinton years to IRS treatment of conservative and Christian organizations to the Russian influence scam to spying on Trump’s campaign and the news media under Obama, Democrat regimes increasingly have abused government power. This week, people should at least consider that the FBI raid on Trump’s home and the passage of the misnamed Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 are harbingers to the tyrannical agenda of the extreme left.

The Obama Administration used the IRS to harass many groups critical of Obama. In May 2013, Red State reported, “Among the ministries targeted are the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Samaritan’s Purse and the Biblical Recorder–the newspaper of the North Carolina Baptist State Convention. The revelations seem to indicate the IRS was targeting more than just Tea Party groups and conservative political organizations.” In June 2021, Biden’s IRS denied the 501(c)(3) application for Christians Engaged because the IRS considered bible teachings to be affiliated with the Republican Party. This recent incident with Christians Engaged demonstrates how an unconstitutional agency like the IRS can sway back and forth on its interpretation of administrative law based on what party holds office.

In June of 2018, the Inspector General issued a report on the FBI abuse of power during the Obama Administration. The FBI and the Obama White House used the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to spy on Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. On December 17, 2019, the FISC issued an order saying that it was duped by Obama’s FBI into issuing a warrant to spy on President Trump’s campaign, stating: “This order responds to reports that personnel of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) provided false information to the National Security Division (NSD) of the Department of Justice… When FBI personnel mislead NSD in the ways described above, they equally mislead the FISC.” Obama was responsible for approving the spy request to the FISC at the urging of his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Fast forward to this week where the FBI conducted an unprecedented show-raid on Trump’s home and the Democrats rammed through the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. Trump rightly claims the FBI raid is a weaponization of the Justice System. The Inflation Reduction Act raises taxes, arming the IRS with an additional $80 billion to hire 87,000 more agents. The FBI actions with the FISA Court and Trump combined with the use of the IRS to silence political dissent should send shivers down the collective spine of all Americans. These people must be voted out of office and their agenda reversed if American liberty is to survive. As in 2 Peter 2:2, “And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.” We need to repent and turn toward the God of truth as the tide of tyranny rises before us.
