SRH: Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In....
I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply Put, I Do Not Believe the Government Is the Solution for Everything.
I Do Not Place Any Faith, Trust, or Hope in Any Politicians to Fix What Is Wrong with the World. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20) The prophet does not confuse truth with consensus. The prophet does not confuse God’s word with the word of those who happen to hold power at present, or with the opinion of the majority. This is because power-holders and the majority can fall victim to a lying spirit-and this means a power that actually seizes the majority of experts, the political leadership, and the public.

HNewsWire: 'I wouldn't put it past this FBI or department of justice to go after upstanding Americans who are defending America's values and upholding the rule of law.' The FBI has shown to be more corrupt than the KGB.
Following the unanticipated fallout from an Aug. 8 media pitch, a military veteran has rescheduled a demonstration outside the FBI offices in Washington on Sunday, Aug. 14.
Following the unprecedented raid on former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence, an Aug. 8 media pitch announced that Adam Hardage, a 20-year military and former Special Ops veteran, was "calling on fellow veterans and Americans of all walks to join him Sunday 8/14 at the FBI HQ in Washington DC to protest the out of control FBI and its actions against President Trump."
Adam Hardage, a veteran of the military and Special Operations, Adam Hardage, a veteran of the military and Special Operations, The unanticipated consequences that rapidly followed, however, forced Hardage to rethink his ideas.
It all started with a news on the upcoming protest highlighted in the media pitch on August 9.
For anyone who desired to interview Hardage, contact information was supplied in the media pitch. While Hardage did receive requests for radio and podcast appearances, the media relations firm that distributed the media pitch reported that The Epoch Times was the only print/web news outlet to request and receive an interview with Hardage on his scheduled protest.
There has been much speculation that Jan. 6, 2021 was a set-up, a coordinated campaign to use the rage of those who believe the 2020 election was stolen against them in order to bring down former President Donald Trump and arrest and imprison his supporters, with the ultimate goal of destroying the MAGA movement.
According to The Epoch Times, evidence has emerged proving that demonstrators were calm until Capitol Police began hurling tear gas and flash-bangs into the crowd, shooting them with rubber bullets, and spraying them with pepper gel in the face. According to experts, a "cadre of provocateurs" then caused confrontations, smashed bike rack barricades, and encouraged demonstrators to storm the Capitol. Members of a secret, plainclothes Electronic Surveillance Unit were even embedded in the crowd, identifiable to Capitol Police by a special multi-colored bracelet worn on their left wrist, for the express purpose of filming the ensuing confrontations between protesters and law enforcement for entrapment.
It wasn't long before rumors developed that the intended protest at the FBI headquarters on Aug. 14, 2022, could be arranged as a trap to entrap demonstrators similar to those who attended the Jan. 6, 2021, rally at the Capitol. 'It's a Scam.'
In response to the Aug. 9 news, comments on social media and right-wing blogs ranged from encouragement to warnings that the proposed protest could be a "trap." Other opinions on social media posts range from Trump's guaranteed victory in 2024 as a result of the raid to claims that the FBI planted evidence at the former president's Mar-a-Lago estate. According to a report published on August 11, Trump supporters were telling people to "beware of probable FBI agents promoting revolt."
"We advise those participating in protest actions to keep alert of their immediate surroundings and to report any suspicious conduct to local law enforcement," said another social media post.
Misinformation followed warnings of entrapment. The host of one social media video incorrectly ascribed to Hardage a comment from "another worried veteran" cited at the end of one story, claiming Hardage indicated he wasn't even planning on attending his own protest.
"I am a 20-year retired navy commander and J6 attendee," stated the unidentified "concerned veteran" in the Aug. 9 story. "I am outraged by yesterday's FBI raid on DJT's residence. In full dress, I will be protesting the termination of the FBI on the busiest junction in my town of Kingwood, TX on Saturday."
Hardage and his wife and two children live in Virginia.The intended Aug. 14 demonstration, according to Dave Scarlett, a Marine and pastor of His Glory Ministries, will "most definitely" end up being another Jan. 6 "trap."
"If you live in the Washington, D.C. area, your liberties are gone," Scarlett told The Epoch Times. "Do not enter Washington. D.C. If you want to demonstrate peacefully, get outside of Washington. D.C.
"That is not the place to represent the nation, patriots, Christians, and the military in our country," Scarlett stated. "It's a snare. Keep your distance. "Don't go there," Scarlett advised. "I have numerous military intelligence sources who are retired generals, and they all say the same thing. Do not enter Washington, D.C.; it is a trap."
"The raid on Mar-a-Lago was a major federal overreach," Hardage argues. He is not by himself.Even a number of prominent Democratic legislators and liberal media outlets have called the raid an outrageous overreach that would require extensive explanation.
While he recognizes that the Mar-a-Lago raid "was intended to scare Americans and intimidate individuals," Hardage feels the raid instead served to "energize Trump's base and the MAGA crowd."
Former President Donald Trump speaks to supporters on June 26, 2021, at the Lorain County Fairgrounds in Wellington, Ohio. "I'm looking forward to seeing MAGA 2.0 because I believe it'll be just fantastic," Hardage remarked. "It'll make the original Trump Train and Trump Wave look like a bore."
"The FBI and tyrants in Washington have overplayed their hand by desecrating the residence of the People's President and the most powerful Leader of the Free World—a cowardly conduct previously only witnessed in Third-World countries," Scarlett stated after the raid. "They have attacked not only the legitimate President, but every freedom-loving American Patriot in our country." This heinous abuse of authority and display of lawlessness will be remembered as the precise moment they sealed their fate. I see a completely committed and united MAGA party, the likes of which this wonderful nation has never seen before. Christians, patriots, the military, and all citizens who value liberty will now band together. They've woken up a sleeping giant. We will be One Nation Under God once more, where justice, truth, and light reign."
"The FBI raid on President Trump's home will go down in history as a watershed moment for a generation," Green told The Epoch Times, adding that "the unknown is whether the turn will be towards total tyranny or a return to liberty, and the answer depends on whether we ordinary Americans say enough is enough."
"The church-going, hard-working, family- and community-focused individuals who form America's backbone are not generally the kind to protest," Green added. "They vote, donate, and may write a letter of concern." None of this is sufficient any longer. Saving America from these Marxists would necessitate civically active, loud, and consistent citizenship, and we're about to see if enough Americans are up to the task."
According to recent polls, the emergence of the "civically active" and "loud" population is already underway.
Following the Jan. 6 protests, the government has done everything it can to use the event against Donald Trump and anyone who supports him. The arrest, incarceration, and torture of demonstrators; the Select Committee's continuous efforts to convict Trump of rebellion and bar him from running for office again; and the raid on Mar-a-Lago, some, including Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), feel "it's about retribution." It's all about fear." Nonetheless, a run of recent studies showed a simultaneous anger with expanding government overreach, a surge in the proportion of Americans who believe the country has a two-tiered judicial system, and an increase in the number of Americans becoming tangibly involved in civic activism.
According to an online poll conducted by the Daily Mail, more than 70% of its readers oppose the Mar-a-Lago raid. According to the Nationwide Issues Survey (pdf) conducted by the Trafalgar Group in collaboration with the Convention of States Action between July 24-28, 79 percent of 1,080 likely U.S. voters polled believe "there are two tiers of justice: one set of laws for politicians and Washington D.C. insiders vs one set of laws for everyday Americans."
According to a national survey of general election likely voters conducted by McLaughlin & Associates for Summit Ministries from July 21-25, while 48% of American voters say their level of civic engagement has remained constant in recent years, nearly 30% have become more involved in the civic process in the last two years. Eighty-one percent of those polled say they are civically engaged because they believe their activism is making a difference.
According to the results of the first national poll conducted following the FBI raid on Trump at Mar-a-Lago, 83 percent of Republicans, 72 percent of independents, and 55.2 percent of Democrats are now more likely to vote in the 2022 Midterm Elections as a result of the raid. While only 11.9 percent of Democrats feel Trump's political opponents are responsible for the FBI raid on the former president's private home, 53.9 percent of Independent voters and 76.7 percent of Republican voters do. More surprising, a majority of independents and Republicans say the raid was unreasonable and is pushing America closer to being a police state. Democrats, on the other hand, believe that such an invasion is entirely reasonable.
"I initially called for a rally in the Northern Virginia/DC area after the politically motivated raid on President Trump's residence at Mar-a-Lago," Hardage told The Epoch Times in the aftermath of the Aug. 9 story. "My intention was to demonstrate unity and support for freedom, the US Constitution, and President Trump." After hearing thousands of online comments and emails from veterans on all sides of the political spectrum around the country, I have decided to alter our plans to peacefully oppose the FBI."
While Hardage stated that the majority of the feedback he received was in favor of the protest, the threats of Jan. 6-style entrapment prompted some concerns. "I wouldn't put it past this FBI or department of justice to go after upstanding Americans who are defending America's principles and upholding the rule of law," Hardage added. "The FBI and the Department of Justice are anything but lawful."
Some veterans said they couldn't make it all the way to Washington, such as the "concerned veteran" who wants to "protest an end to the FBI on the busiest junction" in his town of Kingwood, Texas, "in full uniform" on Saturday, Aug. 13. Instead of staging a single march in Washington, Hardage now encourages all Americans, "particularly the men and women who have served our great nation, to gather in their own hometowns in protest of what occurred to President Trump," according to The Epoch Times.
According to one CBS story, individuals have already been encouraged to protest at the FBI offices in Riverside, California."Whether it's one veteran on a street corner with a sign rebuking tyranny or thousands gathered with me as I speak at Clay Clark's ReAwaken America Tour in New York this Saturday," Hardage stated. "I am also urging all Americans to support local political candidates who embrace an America-first agenda." "Involve your friends and help us save America at the polls in 2022."
Finally, Hardage feels that what Americans are seeing now is "nothing less than an attempted Marxist revolution of the West and the United States." "It's well-coordinated. "It's purposeful and demeaning to the American people," Hardage said, "and very honestly, the awakened patriot movement, the MAGA mob, will not let this pass."
The current political behavior of the Department of Justice and the FBI. They seek to entice individuals to follow their lead and create another WACO or Doug McVey. They want the public response to events to legitimize their actions.
DC isn't even a state in the United States. Don't worry about it. Send them a message from our home in the United States. Fight on our turf; it deprives them of their advantages and offers us the high ground we know.
