Dozens of FBI Agents Raid Respected Pro-Life Advocate’s Home While His Wife, Seven Children Watch In Terror

Dozens of FBI Agents Raid Respected Pro-Life Advocate’s Home While His Wife, Seven Children Watch In Terror

“After asking them why they were at the house, the agents said they were there to arrest Mark. When Ryan-Marie asked for their warrant, ‘they said that they were going to take him whether they had a warrant or not’.”

In a disgusting display of abusive political retribution, 25-30 FBI agents with guns drawn raided the home of a father of seven over disputed charges that were dropped by the state of Pennsylvania but picked up for apparently political purposes by the vengeful and disgraceful Garland DOJ.

Mark Houck was indicted for alleged violations of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE). The FACE Act makes it a federal offense to interfere with access to abortion (and other) clinics.

The National Law Review reports:

According to court documents, Mark Houck, 48, of Kintnersville, Pennsylvania, is alleged to have twice assaulted a man because he was a volunteer reproductive health clinic escort. The two-count indictment charges Houck with a violation of the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, which makes it a federal crime to use force with the intent to injure, intimidate, and interfere with anyone because that person is a provider of reproductive health care.

The charges stem from two separate incidents on Oct. 13, 2021, where Houck assaulted the victim, identified in the indictment as “B.L.,” because B.L. was a volunteer escort at the reproductive health care clinic.

If convicted of the offenses, Houck faces up to a maximum of 11 years in prison, three years of supervised release and fines of up to $350,000.

The FBI Philadelphia Field Office investigated the case. Trial Attorney Sanjay Patel of the Civil Rights Division and Assistant U.S. Attorney Anita Eve for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania are prosecuting the case.

According to Houck’s wife and various other sources who know the family, the incident in question is not what it appears. Houck has reportedly been providing sidewalk counseling to women outside abortion centers for years without incident, and it was only when Houck’s then 12-year-old son was allegedly accosted by a volunteer abortion escort spewing profanities and insults that Houck shoved him away from his son, and the 72-year-old escort fell back. This reportedly happened twice on the same day in October 2021. The escort attempted to sue Houck and failed, and the charges were dropped in PA . . . only to be picked up by Garland’s corrupt DOJ.

The details of the terrifying raid as told by Houck’s wife are very problematic. There is no justification for this level of manpower and intimidation to serve a warrant on a family man who poses no threat to anyone.

LifeSite News reports:

According to his wife Ryan-Marie, who spoke with LifeSiteNews, he also drives two hours south to Philadelphia every Wednesday to sidewalk counsel for six to eight hours at two different abortion centers.

Ryan-Marie, who is a homeschooling mother, described how the SWAT team of 25 to 30 FBI agents swarmed their property with around 15 vehicles at 7:05 a.m. this morning. Having quickly surrounded the house with rifles in firing position, “they started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it.”

Before opening the door, she explained, her husband tried to calm them, saying, “‘Please, I’m going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house.’ But they just kept pounding and screaming,” she said.

When he opened the door, “they had big, huge rifles pointed at Mark and pointed at me and kind of pointed throughout the house,” Ryan-Marie described.

When they came in, they ordered the kids to stay upstairs. “Our staircase is open, so [the kids] were all at the top of the stairs which faces the front door, and I was on the stairs as well, coming down.”

“The kids were all just screaming. It was all just very scary and traumatic,” she explained.

After asking them why they were at the house, the agents said they were there to arrest Mark. When Ryan-Marie asked for their warrant, “they said that they were going to take him whether they had a warrant or not.”

When Ryan-Marie protested, saying that is kidnapping, “you can’t just come to a person’s house and kidnap them at gunpoint,” they agreed to get the warrant for her from one of their vehicles.

At this point, Mark asked her to get him a sweatshirt and his rosaries, but when she returned, they already had loaded him into a vehicle.

They provided the first page of the warrant and said they were taking him to “the federal building in downtown Philadelphia.”

“After they had taken Mark, and the kids were all screaming that he was their best friend, the [FBI agents on her porch] kind of softened a bit. I think they realized what was happening. Or maybe they actually looked at the warrant,” Ryan-Marie explained. “They looked pretty ashamed at what had just happened.”

As a result, the homeschool mother said her kids were “really sad and stressed. So, I’ve already reached out to some psychiatrists or psychologists to try and help us through this. I don’t really know what’s going to come of it when you see guns pointed at your dad and your mom in your house when you first wake up in the morning,” she lamented.

. . . . On several occasions when Mark went to sidewalk counsel last year, he took his eldest son, who was only 12 at the time, she explained. For “weeks and weeks,” a “pro-abortion protester” would speak to the boy saying “crude … inappropriate and disgusting things,” such as “you’re dad’s a fag,” and other statements that were too vulgar for her to convey.

Repeatedly, Mark would tell this pro-abortion man that he did not have permission to speak to his son and please refrain from doing so. And “he kept doing it and kind of came into [the son’s] personal space” obscenely ridiculing his father. At this point, “Mark shoved him away from his child, and the guy fell back.”

“He didn’t have any injuries or anything, but he tried to sue Mark,” and the case was thrown out of court in the early summer.

The alleged statement that the FBI doesn’t need a warrant to take a man from his own home at gunpoint is very worrying and needs to be investigated immediately.

The FBI has done this repeatedly to families across the nation in their ever-expanding search for “domestic terrorists” and “insurrectionists” who have done nothing wrong or who are engaging in their First Amendment-protected rights, and if the FBI is engaging in these actions with this air of arrogant lawlessness and disregard for American citizens’ Constitutional rights, it must be stopped and all involved investigated and, if founded, indicted.

The FBI is being deliberately weaponized against conservatives and anyone who does not support Biden, Democrats, or their evil, unAmerican, tyrannical leftist worldview.

Note the sentence immediately after the highlight above: Biden says his condemnation of MAGA Republicans as enemies of the state and threats to the “soul” of our nation includes those Americans “who have a different view of how the institutions should function.” Read that again. It’s important.

America is not longer the Land of the Free, nor is it the Home of the Brave.

Communists RULE our former country!

Where is local law enforcement in all of this…. When did FBI start working without local law enforcement involvement. Where is the county sheriff,, wouldn’t the sheriff be the proper authority to serve a warrant like this?

    Charles Martel in reply to starride. | September 26, 2022 at 8:17 am

    Because it happened at an abortion clinic, rather than just being an assault-type crime, they are charging a Federal crime related to obstructing an abortion clinic.

      “He’s now being charged by the Biden DOJ with a law called the “Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances,” which makes it a federal crime to “injure, intimidate, and interfere with anyone because that person is a provider of reproductive health care.”

      So this is a federal crime, but entering our country as an invader is not?

      And it took THIRTY agents to contain this family? Did they have laser dots on their hearts too? No doubt they had drones in the air ready to drop missiles on them too.

      The FIB has lost all of its reputation. For being good, constitutional Americans, anyway.

      How very, very sad.

    Charles Martel in reply to starride. | September 26, 2022 at 8:19 am

    The question is why not just send two agents dressed in suits instead of 25-30 with guns drawn?

    If/when such a raid happens again (to anyone) should targeted person’s best bet be to call the sheriff who would likely be able to get there before an attorney?

      taurus the judge in reply to lc. | September 26, 2022 at 10:15 am

      absolutely not- call the attorney FIRST

      Reason is simple here- this is “allegedly” a FEDERAL crime so local LE would have no jurisdiction/say in the matter.

    taurus the judge in reply to starride. | September 26, 2022 at 10:17 am

    @ Star

    No, this is allegedly a Federal warrant.

    I would love to see both the charges and specifications as well as the affidavit for cause.

For the time being this type of operation is the closest Biden’s Gestapo can get to a Nacht und Nebel campaign to terrorize and eliminate political opponents.

    SophieA in reply to JHogan. | September 26, 2022 at 1:29 am

    What you say has never been truer. Ground zero for spiritual warfare has always been abortion clinics. Since Roe v Wade was overturned, the leftists have become even more unhinged.

    Also true is the left’s constant attack on the innocence of children.

    Street counseling in front of an abortion clinic is no place for a 12 year old child. This battle has become too dangerous and toxic for minor children.

    This FBI raid never should have happened, but we must remain as wise as serpents and understand that this evil administration will stop at nothing to destroy decent Americans especially those parents who protect their children.

    Prayers for this family’s protection and healing from this trauma.

      Amen!

      JohnSmith100 in reply to SophieA. | September 26, 2022 at 3:54 pm

      I agree, but I also think it is stupid to take children to intentional confrontations. I would never put my children in that situation. Lets be truthful, “sidewalk counsels outside Planned Parenthoods” are really badgering.

      Also, it is foolish to force people to have children that they do not want, that they will often not raise well. Then we all pay for their shiftless parenting.

      This raid was over the top, far beyond reason, and those responsible should be held accountable.

        So the answer is to torture and murder the baby.

        Nice. There is nothing stopping anyone form exercising post birth abortion upon theirselves, proving you really support it.

          Barry in reply to Barry. | September 26, 2022 at 8:05 pm

          By the way, no one is forced to get pregnant and have a child except for victims of rape.

          Do you have any idea of how many conceptions end with spontaneous miscarriage?
          Life is a continuous process, sperm and embryos are both alive. taking these life arguments to their logical conclusion, every wasted sperm and embryo must be murder Rhythm results in periodic murder, I say periodic because it is so ineffective.

Is anyone compiling information about the chain of command in these cases? I seems like that might me a good way of identifying swamp critters.

    OK, the “Swamp Critters” get identified, what will that accomplish?

    taurus the judge in reply to JohnSmith100. | September 26, 2022 at 12:13 pm

    For what purpose?

    I grant that most of us are absolutely furious about this gross miscarriage of justice but we MUST attack the problem at the SOURCE- not where we think it should be.

    Regardless of their actions in this arrest ( that’s a different subject altogether) the FBI did NOT initiate the arrest warrant.

    A Federal Prosecutor convened a Grand Jury and got a True Bill. After that, there was no option but to serve the warrant.

    THATS THE PRIMARY FOCUS.

      “A Federal Prosecutor convened a Grand Jury and got a True Bill. After that, there was no option but to serve the warrant.”

      True they did have to serve the warrant. However they had lots of choices in HOW to serve the warrant. Serving a warrant with weapons at the ready without provocation needs to be stopped.

      Baloney. Who initiates the warrant?

      The DOJ.

      Who runs the FBI?

      The DOJ.

      One and same and both a complete farce.

        taurus the judge in reply to Barry. | September 27, 2022 at 7:38 am

        No Barry, as with most things- you are totally wrong in almost every detail and despite the fact I often agree with your “concept”, everything else you say detracts from the point and heart of the issue thus negating any possible value to what you say.

        The “charge” (not warrant) is brought by a HUMAN ( prosecutor having jurisdiction) to a GJ following established law.

        The GJ issues a true bill which becomes the warrant- LE serves said warrant.

        The “DOJ” is an ORGANIZATION- not a sentient life form so don’t attribute those points to an organization.

          JohnSmith100 in reply to taurus the judge. | September 27, 2022 at 11:31 am

          Now this was useful information, much better than tossing out insults.

          1) The prosecutor is at fault.

          2) Now we need to know who ordered the extreme raid. Clearly, there is no excuse for traumatizing the whole family.

          So that person(s) needs to be identified and held accountable. We need all swamp critters unmasked.

          taurus the judge in reply to taurus the judge. | September 27, 2022 at 12:21 pm

          Well John, the prosecutor brought the charge. That may not be the “fault”

          In general,

          ALL charges start with an INCIDENT REPORT then a cursory investigation ( cause) then it moves to an “official investigation” leading to a formal charge or dropping it- THEN it goes to trial.

          Police have submitted false information to DA’s before. DA’s have gone rogue before too.

          If I were an IG looking at this, I would want to see the actual INCIDENT REPORT and here’s why.

          The statute he is charged under (FACE act 18USC.248- need to read it for what I’m saying to have proper significance)

          says interfering with the duties and all that ( section 1 & 2)- OTHERWISE this “alleged” A&B would be a routine state level offense.

          That’s important because the “alleged” underlying act ( this assault as claimed) did NOT get the suspect arrested that day and could NOT “shore” a civil case.

          So, how did it become an issue now?

          Find out that and we will then see exactly who did what and why.

Thank you for covering this, and adding in the story of agent Friend.
This is so over the top stasi tactics.

Pension uber alles. F the FBI and 99.9% of the scumbags that work there.

What recourse do any of us have?

Very scary

It’s a show-raid, like a show trial. The guy seems to have been a bit of an activist though.

    Massinsanity in reply to rhhardin. | September 25, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Your comments are insipid.

    Whitewall in reply to rhhardin. | September 26, 2022 at 7:31 am

    What kind of jackassery are you talking?

    “The guy seems to have been a bit of an activist though.”

    What does that comment mean? I’m a “bit of an activist”. The guy was an unapologetic activist in support of life for the unborn, opposed to the torture and murder of babies.

    I think your comment needs an explanation for your sake because I don’t think it’s being taken the way you meant it. Or, maybe it is.

Very terrifying and they are just going to keep abusing the American people

It’s amazing how many FBI are willing to do this

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to gonzotx. | September 25, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    It doesn’t amaze me in the slightest. Cops are cops.

      “After they had taken Mark, and the kids were all screaming that he was their best friend, the [FBI agents on her porch] kind of softened a bit. I think they realized what was happening. Or maybe they actually looked at the warrant,” Ryan-Marie explained. “They looked pretty ashamed at what had just happened.”

      Or maybe the answer is simpler — their bosses LIED to them about what a DEMON the accused was before sending them out to stomp him with their jackboots. And after actually meeting the guy, they got a glimpse that their bosses had played them for suckers.

      All you conservatives who have convinced yourself that “the cops / military will never turn on American citizens,” disabuse yourself of it now. Because they won’t be told you’re an “American citizen,” they’ll be told you’re a “domestic terrorist.”

        Fair point. I don’t trust anyone from the federal govt. I don’t trust the local police either.

        I do think the saving grace of law enforcement are sheriffs and the deputy’s. They are closer to the community they serve. Not perfect, but much less likely to pull shit like this.

        TheOldZombie in reply to henrybowman. | September 26, 2022 at 1:28 pm

        That’s how I read that paragraph. They were probably told they were apprehending a dangerous person which is why they had 25-30 armed agents. Than when they started hearing about the warrant and what this guy was being charged with they got pissed off.

        I’d be ashamed too to be part of 25-30 agent heavily armed team to take down a guy that pushed another guy.

        Dathurtz in reply to henrybowman. | September 26, 2022 at 4:56 pm

        Wait until you realize they would have done it anyways even if they knew the truth.

    Dimsdale in reply to gonzotx. | September 26, 2022 at 1:41 pm

    “We were chust follovink orders….”

Those kids will live with that terror for the rest of their lives and that was intended, to send a message to anyone who thinks about resisting this regime.

They were just following orders
Germany 1933

Didn’t happen, Milhouse said so.

There is only one thing good about this event, that it didn’t end like Ruby Ridge. This is actually a worse raid than that one, but without the deadly ending.
It is time to disband the FBI. Remove it, bulldoze the buildings, salt the ground they stood on.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Barry. | September 26, 2022 at 10:54 am

    The issue is: the fibbies are barreling headlong down a path of one of their raids turning into a Ruby Ridge or a Waco, and soon.

This is another reason I believe that we need a Federal Department of Internal Affairs. We need someone to watch the watchmen.

    LOL, more government employees to watch the government’s employees..Genius! …BTW there are inspector generals around , see how well that is working out?

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to CountMontyC. | September 26, 2022 at 10:55 am

    What? Another layer of bureaucracy? “Internal Affairs”? More like whitewash.

    Dimsdale in reply to CountMontyC. | September 26, 2022 at 1:42 pm

    We just need the Untouchables to return…

    BierceAmbrose in reply to CountMontyC. | September 26, 2022 at 2:35 pm

    The Federal Department off Internal Affairs is the Citizens of The Republic, monitoring what is done with our delegated authority, for us, and *to* us, in our name, in principle for our advantage.

      taurus the judge in reply to BierceAmbrose. | September 26, 2022 at 3:03 pm

      Please explain how this would work in a legal framework?

        BierceAmbrose in reply to taurus the judge. | September 27, 2022 at 10:58 pm

        Failing at some irony there, The Federal Department of Internal Affairs can work if it’s not a federal department. It doesn’t have a legal framework, because it has a political one.

        Outside an inside “legal framework” free information and the autonomy to vote the bastards out for any reason or none makes a backstop on shenanigans, sometimes, eventually. Politics doesn’t work case by case, but coarsely “What are you doing letting those clowns mess with us like this?”

        Systems outside the system you’re looking at get a veto sometimes. Politics surrounds legal systems. There’s another layer of steering feedback outside politics in people’s playing along. Irish Democracy is a thing. There’s another layer outside even people’s participation. Biology got a veto on regieme and policy in the Soviet Union eventually.

    taurus the judge in reply to CountMontyC. | September 26, 2022 at 3:02 pm

    In this case, what would this hypothetical “FDIA” have done?

    We must get our emotions in check and think rationally or we will lose due to our own implosion.

    No “IA” department would have any oversight , input or say in a prosecutor choosing to convene a Grand Jury or its decision.

    Once the GJ returns a true bill- there WILL be an arrest.

    As to 25-30 people and all the hyperbole…

    Yeah, its silly, overkill, an intimidation tactic and all of that- will not get any argument from me whatsoever.

    But its not illegal or outside the norm when arresting a “reported” violent person. ( and yes if one is accused of “assault” that’s considered a violent offense)

    paracelsus in reply to CountMontyC. | September 26, 2022 at 3:13 pm

    Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? ad infinitum?

Garland, Wray and Biden are insane. Harris is obviously mentally impaired, Schumer is strange and mentally feeble, and Pelosi suffers from alcoholic dementia…and that is about as dangerous as sweating explosives for someone in her position.

The absolute absence of fear of any kind of consequences for their actions is a stunning indictment of the GOPe RINO cowards.

They do not believe that there will be consequences at any point for how they are behaving.

And thus far, they are absolutely right.

Bitch McConnell isn’t even PRETENDING he’s going to do a thing to stop them if he’s put back in as Senate ‘leader’.

    MarkS in reply to Olinser. | September 26, 2022 at 8:10 am

    taurus the judge in reply to Olinser. | September 26, 2022 at 10:22 am

    @Olsiner

    Don’t take this in any way as supporting or defending the GOPe or a turtle but:

    In reality, there is no direct leadership or supervisory role available to either the House or Senate over the AG and DOJ ( executive branch and separation of powers).

    That said, their total silence is infuriating but even that’s nothing new.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to taurus the judge. | September 26, 2022 at 10:58 am

      At the very least, I was expecting some home-spun wisecracking from Senator Kennedy. None yet, and likely be none. Sellouts like Cruz won’t say anything.

        taurus the judge in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | September 26, 2022 at 11:17 am

        Well Griz,

        I had to face the painful reality that if they remained “silent’ throughout both the J6 and Trump obvious Gestapo raids, then nothing is going to get a reaction out of them unless someone accosts a trans type trying to vote.

        This is untrue. Cruz (and Mike Lee) are and have been calling for a house-cleaning at the FBI due to all its overreach. This didn’t even happen in their states. Cruz is focused on the border (in Texas, the state the elected him to the Senate) and on the IRS buildup, along with some other issues like Texas ranchers and farmers.

        There is SO. MUCH. HORROR. and awful that no one can possibly address every bit of it. Our country is almost unrecognizable: CRT, racist training, Big Tech colluding with a tyrannical administration, Bidenflation, energy and gas issues, supply issues, food and other shortages, a lawless DOJ and FBI, a president calling half the population terrorists, and on and on. And on.

        I get being frustrated, but it’s not helpful to demand from elected officials something that is unreasonable. EVERYTHING is shit, what the heck would YOU do if you were a Senator (or U.S. Rep)? What would YOU comment on or react to or focus on or do? It’s a gigantic multi-pronged attack on our nation from within, and it needs to be addressed as such. And that means methodical, thoughtful, effective changes, not being expected to wisecrack about every injustice this administration does (there’s not enough hours in the day to cover it all!).

        And also, not necessarily to Grizz as I went off on one of my rants again, it’s important to get that Congress isn’t a collective president or king, and no individual in the legislative branch has power to DO anything on his or her (or its) own. That’s just not how it works, how it was intended to work, or how it should work. Imagine if AOC or Pelosi or Schumer could “DO” anything they wanted across government and the country? Aren’t you glad they CAN NOT? I sure am. But it also works the other way, no single Congresscritter can DO anything outside their purview, either.

    Congress has no say over what the Executive branch agencies do. They can defund them and investigate them (as Grassley is doing and WHY we know what we know at all), but they have no power over the Executive (remember separation of powers?).

      Fuzzy, Congress has lots of authority to impact and control what agencies and departments do.
      1. Congress can alter the statutes the agency enforces to narrow the scope of authority.
      2. They can end the discretionary powers of each agency by requiring all proposed regulations to be put to a vote by Congress, ie ending the Secretary shall make such rules bs.
      3. They could reduce their budget.
      4. They could even eliminate an agency.

      Lots of steps in between. The Congress doesn’t want to do those things. They like setting up the executive branch as the bad guy. Congress in essence, out sources their responsibility to the bureaucracy and then use them as foil to raise money and complain about big govt doing X or failing to do Y.

        These actions would take supermajorities voting in support of them, so we need to carry on with replacing as many RINOs as possible with more Constitutional-minded Republicans and Democrats with RINOs if that’s all we can get (it’s still better than what Democrats are voting for/against).

          Just who are you, taurus the judge cum spec-op dude cum cop on the beat cum engineer of all things cum decider of who agrees with/takes my comments to heart? Inquiring minds want to know.

          CommoChief in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | September 27, 2022 at 8:07 pm

          Fuzzy,

          Simple majority needed to change a statute. Simple majority needed to alter how future regulations are instituted. Simple majority needed for funding.

          All that’s really needed is to require a speaking filibuster v the BS they use now. That is also a simple majority vote even in the Senate.

          The teal issue as you identified is WHO we send to Congress. If our Rep and Senators choose to place other interests in front of those their constituents want accomplished it doesn’t matter how big a majority we hold.

          We must start rooting out the rino in every race possible. Some CD and States that will be easier. In some that rino is as good as it gets for the area and we need to live with it.

          Maine isn’t TX and we shouldn’t expect a Rep or Senator from Maine to be a fire eater. At the same time Cornyn isn’t the most conservative candidate much less the most populist right candidate that can be elected in TX.

          That should be our goal. Elect the most populist right sort of candidate possible in that State or CD. Rhode Island isn’t Alabama and until we accept that the electorate of each CD and State are different we waste time. Better to force candidates in red CD and red States to act like it instead of allowing them to wonder to the NYT for more hugs and kisses from neo liberal puedo intellectuals.

          Supermajority required to overcome Biden’s veto.

          Agree with everything else you said and have said the same thing myself many times. 😛

I would like to think it’s a false flag kind of thing, but I am overwhelmed by the conviction that the democrats really think they can get somewhere by pulling stunts like this.

At the rate things are going, there is going to be an incident and it will cost the FBI one of their goon squads…raid teams.

If it happens, it won’t end there.

The FBI can not be reformed, it needs to be disbanded and all personnel terminated from government employment.

    Yes, the feds definitely monitor LI and other sites. And on some sites they post nonsense trying to get people to say things that can be used to frame them.

    Sure, and all of us need to speak up and fight the gestapo, not calmly enter the cattle cars.

    Let’s be clear, the FBI agents don’t care. They have been selected to follow orders, legal or not. There are some exceptions, but they are few.

Does anyone have a link to the lawsuit filed by the clinic escort – that the articles says the person pushed lost in court?

I’d like to read the description of the incident from the lawsuit.

Additionally, a Special Agent named Steve Friend says he was disarmed, stripped of their badge, and kicked out of the FBI office because he refused to participate in what sounds like a similar incident with a huge number of armed FBI agents showing up to arrest an otherwise non-violent suspect.

“He was declared absent without leave last month for refusing to participate in SWAT raids that he believed violated FBI policy and were a use of excessive force against Jan. 6 ­subjects accused of misdemeanor ­offenses.”

simply unbelievable–whether you should take your young son to an abortion clinic to counsel (“protest”) or not is a parenting issue–no one, including the obnoxious old man who allegedly did so, has the right to verbally assault / threaten your child–period

there is simply no excuse, as a judge / court evidently decided when they dismissed the case

similarly, there is no excuse for this man’s treatment by the fbi–this type of behaviour, whether condoned/ignored/encouraged or not, goes straight to the top, to the main man, wray–allowing this type of behaviour in your organization is, as the presumed leader of such, your personal responsibility–disgusting indeed

to humiliate/threaten a peaceful man and in the process terrify his wife and their children without a mote of justification is beyond the pale–simply unforgiveable and beneath the dignity of grown men/women

would like to know who signed/authorized the “warrant” for such an action–they should be in prison

    I did some legwork

    This “warrant” was a true bill returned from a Grand Jury so its another Ham Sandwich attack.

    Tells me how weak the case really is now.

      Perhaps it’s time to reform the Grand Jury system. I don’t think it’s working anymore as it was originally intended.

        taurus the judge in reply to TheOldZombie. | September 26, 2022 at 2:01 pm

        I have believed that for decades. That’s actually one of the reasons I left LE for a different career path.

          Was that your LE career as a beat cop? Or that time, at band camp, when you were a SWAT team specialist? Was that before or after your career in multiple fields of engineering? Or during your time as a respected lawyer/jurist? It all gets so confusing.

          I’ve been watching you with great interest, as you know (thus your attacks on me), and I haven’t figured it out yet. But I am confident that you are not just a normal LI commenter.

Maybe if a few honest law enforcement types in the. Community started arresting FBI agents for kidnapping this would end pretty quick.

    That’s what I have been saying. The states, especially those that value freedom and liberty, need to shut down the fbi.

    I am in no way supporting or condoning the DOJ’s actions but we are not going to win this by proposing impossible scenarios.

    Since they are serving a warrant from a Grand Jury, what would the basis be for “kidnapping”?

      Surely, there should be a reasonable course of action for the abuse of power of a 30 member federal swat team to arrest someone accused of shoving that was judged a reasonable response in self defense by local criminal and civil authorities. What could it be?
      Not arguing with you at all, just wondering what prudent actions are possible.

        taurus the judge in reply to MDP. | September 27, 2022 at 12:04 pm

        Here’s the problem and I understand your anger and frustration ( right there with you myself)

        Nothing they did is “illegal”- that’s the problem.

        I can guarantee you that no “I don’t like the way they do it” based argument will even get anyone’s attention.

        They will argue “erring on the side of caution for the good of the public” and that IS going to “win the day”

          Again, not arguing.
          We all know that arguing that a 30 member swat team to arrest someone for pushing someone away from their child is not erring on the side of caution for the good of the public, that should be laughed at. Whether it is prudent and feasible to pay for a lawyer and seek accountability is another question.

          @MDP

          You wont get any argument from me on the absolute absurdity on the way this ( and many other raids) were executed. You have seen me comment enough to know where I am on this.

          There is simply no excuse I would accept for the execution of this raid.

          That said, my opinion doesn’t matter to them either because I already know how they will respond and that response is going to win. (live to fight another day)

          This conduct must be addressed from the top down or else it will fail.

Reproductive health is politically congruent (“=”) human rites a.k.a. wicked solution.

There is no mystery in sex and conception. A woman and man have four choices, and an equal right to self-defense through reconciliation. The wicked solution is neither a good nor exclusive choice to a hard problem: keep women affordable, available, and taxable, and the “burdens” of evidence” aborted, sometimes [clinically] cannibalized, and the carbon sequestered in darkness. The Pro-Choice ethical religion denies women and men’s dignity and agency, and reduces human life to negotiable commodities.

Schindler’s… Houck’s List.

Germany had his Choice. China had State’s Choice. America has her Choice or shared responsibility through religious (“ethical”) sanction of human rites performed for social, redistributive, clinical, political, and fair weather causes. One step forward, two steps backward.

This overt fascism according to our institutions is Democracy; Italy electing a woman who disagrees with them=fascism

“Facsism will be coming back as anti-fascism”

    Just like racism is “anti-racism.” The left is always guilty of what it accuses the right of doing/being.

      False accusations have been a thing ever since the serpent told Eve that God wasn’t good.

      While right you are missing something

      How did the term “racist” impact you 20 years ago and how did the term “fascist” impact you 6 years ago? Haven’t those terms lost their sting?

      They hit a lot of birds with one stone in their language.

        You’re right, Danny, I vividly remember the first time I was (falsely) called a racist, and it hurt. It was also, however, the moment I truly understood that the “racist” accusation was being used as a weapon, not as a means to promote equality but to promote and stoke division and hate.

If Ring, Alexa, Siri, and all things MetaFace can continuously stream media and more to store n forward to the FBI … your door camera and personal phone can stream to hosted storage your friends, family, and lawyer can all access without you.

Surveillance: it’s not just for the proles any more.

The FBI has pretty much denied it all. I don’t believe them..

    Yes, I should do a follow-up on their statement. I don’t believe them, either, and that’s a huge problem for the FBI. They have lost public trust (and if they lost ME, who clung to my fantasy version of them for far longer than I should have, it’s a safe bet they lost people much less prone to support them than I.).

The only terrorism that is in the United States is

1. Leftist terrorism-Coming towards pro-life pregnancy centers especially

2. Der Garland und Der Biden und Der Wray’s terrorism-Abusing the FBI as a tool of political intimidation (definition of terrorism).

Murdering more 5 year old children in Pakistan and Yemen will not help overcome our terror problem.

I just want to point out this is the kinder and gentler FBI. They waited until 7AM to do the raid instead of the traditional 3AM, they didn’t include a helicopter or a speedboat, they actually forgot to tell CNN, and they only used 30 agents to do the arrest instead of the normal 70 or so complete with an extensive rip-the-walls-apart search of the house, confiscation of every electronic device down to calculators, and shooting the dog. I mean I don’t think the family had a dog, but that’s immaterial. It’s all totally justified, because where would this world be if fathers started actually defending their sons against obscenity-spewing men who bully them off the sidewalk and threaten them? That’s madness.
