Look there’s clearly a double standard. But I think what’s even more troubling and what every American, whether you’re Democrat, Republican, doesn’t matter, liberal, conservative, doesn’t matter. If 30 FBI agents can take over the house of a former president of the United States and probable candidate for president, what can they do to you? And when you look at the Democrats who are trying to add 85,000 IRS agents to the already existing 77,000, that would mean 162,000 IRS agents compared, for example, to 29,000 people that we have on the border trying to control the border. But the purpose of it is simple. They want to control you. These raid, the kind of thing you talked about earlier taking people off an airplane in chains, having a guy standing outside at three in the morning in his pajamas, these things are all designed to intimidate. If this government can get away with third world tactics worthy of Venezuela, or the east German or Zimbabwe, if that’s the future, then the constitution as a working document has ceased to exist. And I think part of the answer has to be to say to everybody who is going to get very upset, fine, go beat them at the polls in November. The answer to this is get a Republican house, a Republican senate, and let’s rip the corruption, not just in the FBI, but across the whole system. That’s rip the corruption out, but I have to tell you, I couldn’t believe it when I first heard today that 30 FBI agents had invaded Mar-a-Lago when it was totally unnecessary. And it’s clearly an effort designed I think partly to go to president trump in the hopes that will do something that will further validate the left’s fantasy about the kind of guy he is. The fact is he did nothing wrong, he’s cooperated, and for his trouble — and you just heard Eric say this, the Trump family has been persecuted more than any presidential family and history. And I just want to repeat, if they can do this to a former and potentially future president, what can they do to you or your cousin or your friends or your neighbors? And I think it’s a very scary step towards a police state eliminating the constitution as a real document.
Sean, let you in on a dirty secret. Everybody keeps trying to understand these people as though they are reasonable. This is the first big government socialist machine at a national level we’ve ever seen. We saw Tamini Hall in New York, we saw Mayor Daily in Chicago, we saw Huey Long in Louisiana. This is a machine. This machine is going to die if Donald Trump wins. And they know they are going to die because they have to survive off of corruption and they have to survive off people dolling out money like crazy. And so, they are fighting for their lives. And to ask the question, why do they do this? It’s like asking why does a lion eat a zebra. These people get up every morning terrified, they know they are at war with the American people, they know that overwhelmingly the American people disagree with them and if they can’t find some way to intimidate us to force us on defense to tell us to shut up. And that’s why they go out and they deliberately humiliate somebody, because you know what that does? That sends a signal to six or eight thousand people. You want to be humiliated? And I have friends now who tell me, serious senior professionals that they’re frankly frightened. They don’t want to stand up and say they’re for Donald Trump because they are afraid of what’s going to happen. Either their big corporations are going to fire them, or if they’re a lawyer their law firm is going to kick them out, or they may be visited one morning by the FBI or by the IRS. Remember we had a whole IRS scandal under Obama where they were targeting specific people. Do not underestimate how deliberately these people are committed to doing whatever it takes including destroying the Constitution in order to maintain power and that is going to be a major issue between now and the election this fall.
I think we are on a balance. I think if the Republicans win this fall and reassert the constitution, which is going to mean frankly firing an amazing number of corrupt people, then the constitution will survive. But if the left manages to survive and manages to stay in power, I do think Mark Levin is right, we are entering a basically Venezuelan, Zimbabwean, east German style banana republic in which the law doesn’t matter, what matters is power, what matters is favoritism, what matters is whether your team is paying off the right people. And that would be very sick and tragic end to the American dream.
No. No. What I think they owe the American people — resigning. I don’t need to be told by two liars the latest lie. The fact is they authorized something that is clearly outside the bounds of the American system. They authorized something which has never ever happened in American history. And the idea that they innocently — oh, we didn’t realize there would be 30 FBI agents, we didn’t realize that it would look bad, we really feel sorry. I’m sick of it, Sean. These people are bad people doing bad things, and it’s time we said that, and we meant it and we went out and won the election. Again I think we have to focus all of our energy on defeating the people who defend destroying the constitution.
