    Oklahoma state Rep. Justin Humphrey (R-Lane) sent a letter to the Oklahoma Attorney General, the Sheriff of Pushmataha County, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt and “All Oklahoma judicial authorities and other law enforcement entities,” requesting an investigation into ATF’s SWAT team raid at the home of his constituent, Russell Fincher. According to a press release, Humphrey said he was contacted by Fincher after a dozen ATF SWAT team members bearing “automatic weapons” raided Fincher’s home, handcuffed him on his porch in front of his 13-year-old son and coerced him into relinquishing his Federal Firearm License. “If this report is true, and...

    A clearer picture is emerging of the 75-year-old Utah man shot dead by the FBI after they tried to serve a search warrant hours before Joe Biden arrived in the state on a re-election campaign swing. But questions are also being asked as to whether Craig Robertson was a “credible threat”, as the FBI claims, or as neighbors in Provo, Utah, have described to local media as a man harboring anti-government views who walked with a cane and liked to bluster and tell big stories, especially on social media. Robertson had posted threats against the president, including asking whether Utah...

    Many Americans were no doubt surprised Wednesday by reports that the FBI had shot and killed a Provo man who had posted threats against President Joe Biden and other Democratic elected and appointed officials on social media. The shooting appears to be the latest manifestation of just how deep and potentially dangerous the nation’s political divide has become to some Americans. Graphic and specific threats of violence are indeed disgusting and concerning. Such threats are not protected free speech, and federal agents cannot afford to take physical threats to the president or other officials lightly. However, the incident was a...

The deadly shooting occurred in Provo around 6:15 a.m., when the feds tried to serve arrest and search warrants at a home, the FBI office in Salt Lake City told The Post in a statement.

It remains to be seen if he'll have any right to compensation.It took Carlos Pena decades to build his local business after immigrating to North Hollywood, California, from El Salvador. It only took a few hours to destroy it. While Pena is the one who created NoHo Printing & Graphics, where he fashioned commercial signs and banners, T-shirts, headshots, and other products, he is not the one who did the damage, despite the fact that he has been left with the bill and without a livelihood.

    The correct ‘processes were all followed’ regarding the widely-criticized SWAT raid of the Houck family, FBI Director Christoper Wray claimed.(LifeSiteNews) — The director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently defended the agency’s dramatic raid of pro-life advocate Mark Houck. During an interview with Fox News anchor Bret Baier on Tuesday, FBI director Christopher Wray backed his agency’s actions on September 23, 2022, when numerous armed agents swarmed Houck’s Pennsylvania home early in the morning and arrested him in front of his seven children. After an incident occurred with an “escort” outside an abortion center, Houck was accused of...

The Washington Post's correction, which was added to the top of an article published Friday titled "Democrats challenge credibility of GOP witnesses who embrace false Jan. 6 claims," stated: "An earlier version of this article erroneously said former FBI official Stephen Friend had not reported to a supervisor one of his concerns related to the use of a SWAT team in arrests related to the Jan. 6, 2021, riots.

On a Jan. 31 episode of the podcast “War Room,” the host, Steve Bannon, asked Houck: “Do you intend to press charges for prosecutorial abuse? And are you going to press charges against the FBI agents and the state troopers?” “We most definitely will and we will be seeking counsel on that,”...

    A Philadelphia jury has found pro-life father Mark Houck not guilty on both counts in the case of the bogus charges the Biden administration filed against him. Houck is facing bogus charges that he violated the federal FACE law when he was helping women outside an abortion center. An abortion business escort accosted and bullied his son and Houck stepped in to stop it – and, in doing so, the older abortion center volunteer fell down. Houck could have faced over a decade in prison if he was found guilty. But a jury today reached a not guilty verdict –...

    The SWAT team used a battering ram on Johnson's garage door, and in the fruitless search that followed, "a prized doll from our client's collection had its head broken off — and the things in her home were left in disarray," Silverstein recounts. And although almost a year has passed since the raid, Johnson still "feels unsafe in her home," he adds. "She's afraid to answer the phone, and for several months, she stayed with her daughter, and then she stayed with her son, rather than the home she's owned and lived in for forty years."

    Marjorie Taylor Greene spoke at a rally for Donald Trump in Michigan on Saturday night. A video shows her accusing Democrats of murdering Republicans, saying the "killings" have already begun. She referenced two local stories, neither of which appear to back the claim that Republicans are being hunted down. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene deceptively claimed at a rally for former President Donald Trump in Warren, Michigan, on Saturday that Democrats are murdering Republicans. "I'm not going to mince words with you all," Greene said. "Democrats want Republicans dead. They've already started the killings." Greene, who has repeatedly spread bizarre conspiracy...

    Simone Gold is a fighter for medical freedom. Many Americans first learned of her when in July of 2020 Gold, who founded America’s Frontline Doctors, spoke along with other doctors at a Washington, DC press conference. The doctors challenged the coronavirus party line that had been pushed relentlessly in America over the preceding few months. That press conference, at which Gold spoke first among the doctors and served as the master of ceremonies, was a refreshing breakthrough of the voice of dissident doctors challenging the coronavirus crackdown and the accompanying propaganda campaign. Gold and her organization continued fighting for medical...

    A Word About Swatting…By J. JohnsonIt appears to be the new rave among the enemy hostiles among us: The art of calling 911 with false statements in an attempt to generate a possibly lethal interaction with law enforcement. Although the expected response is outrage and shock, if we look at this through a ‘war time’ lens (thank you Joe Biden for saying the quiet part out loud), an analysis may provide a few lessons on how to address these matters down the road since of course – this could happen to any Real American fighting for freedom.… and it probably...

    Aprank call led local law enforcement officers to the home of Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene early Wednesday morning in what her office described as a "political attack on her family and home." Greene tweeted Wednesday that "she was swatted just after 1 a.m." and expressed her gratitude to the Rome Police Department in Floyd County, Georgia. On Wednesday morning, police confirmed the swatting incident in a press release that included a redacted report on the incident. "Swatting" often refers to the harassment or deception of emergency personnel in order to get authorities to go to a particular residence. "Right...

She described her arrest days after the January 6 incident as a “violent assault,” saying that an “FBI SWAT team raided my home with assault rifles and a battering ram.” She...

    Add the U.S. Department of Education to the list of federal agencies that can invade your home at gunpoint and hold you and your family in custody for hours. Kenneth Wright learned this the hard way last week, when federal "education" agents busted down the front door of his Stockton, Calif., home at 6 in the morning. "They surrounded the house; it was like a task force or SWAT team," a neighbor told a national news affiliate. "They all had guns. They dragged him out in his boxer shorts, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him." Wright's terrified children...
