Joe Biden’s Justice Department had even more reason not to command the FBI raid of Mark Houck’s home. The pro-life advocate and family man offered to speak to them around 3 months ago.

At 5:00 am on September 23rd, 20 to 30 armed FBI agents showed up at his private home. They banged on the door and terrified his wife and their seven young children. They threatened to break down the door if he didn’t open it. The agents then proceeded to arrest him at gunpoint in front of his family and take him away.

What did Houck do wrong? He was counseling women outside of an abortion clinic. He wanted them to know that they had other options. A man who the clinic hired to usher women in without seeing or hearing other options began to confront his child. The man shouted at his young son and screamed obscenities in his face. Houck shoved the man away from his son and the man fell to the ground.

This all happened around a year ago and a court even dismissed charges his prosecutors filed.

The problem? Houck violated what is known as the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, also known as FACE. This act makes it illegal for anyone to present options that might persuade a woman not to kill her child. Biden’s Justice Department deems this offense serious enough to unnecessarily traumatize children.

Yes, the arrest was entirely unnecessary. According to Houck’s attorney, Thomas More Society Vice President and Senior Counsel Peter Breen, Houck offered to turn himself in voluntarily months ago.

In June 2022, Thomas More Society attorneys notified the Biden Department of Justice that the FACE Act does not cover one-on-one altercations like the one involving Houck, which was initiated by the abortion proponent who was harassing Houck’s son. The Department of Justice was also advised that if the decision was made to bring a charge against Houck despite lack of legal foundation, Houck would appear voluntarily.

“Rather than accepting Mark Houck’s offer to appear voluntarily, the Biden Department of Justice chose to make an unnecessary show of potentially deadly force, sending twenty heavily armed federal agents to the Houck residence at dawn this past Friday,” explained Breen. “In threatening form, after nearly breaking down the family’s front door, at least five agents pointed guns at Mark’s head and arrested him in front of his wife and seven young children, who were terrified that their husband and father would be shot dead before their eyes.”

“This case is being brought solely to intimidate people of faith and pro-life Americans,” stated Breen. “Mark Houck is innocent of these lawless charges, and we intend to prove that in court.”

The devoted family man and community leader will appear in federal court in Philadelphia for a 1:30 p.m. (Eastern) arraignment on September 27, 2022, with his Thomas More Society attorneys by his side.

Biden’s FBI is not what was intended in 1908, or even 1950 or 2000. It has been weaponized and now is a mere instrument of the president who uses the Attorney General as a shield against public criticism. Biden is the perfect marionette for America’s powerful oligarchy.

Clearly, our president answers to an oligarchy that has seized control of the nation. Its members cannot tolerate criticism that jeopardizes their wealth. Intimidation works wonders against the cowed American people. But they seem to be running out of patience. Resistance is forming.

Well unfortunately, he put his hands on an evil person. If he did not want his child yelled at he should not have brought them into a volatile situation. Better to have warned the child what might happen as these people do not want anyone to know that they are murdering.

What kind of man yells and curses at a child. I guess that’s what you get from somebody who will support the death of babies alive in the wombs of women. PS, God is watching!

Bidens Stasi force. Is this what voters thought that they were siging up for when they voted for this nasty, cognitively impaired dolt as president? they thought he was mild mannnered grandpa. Biden is so filled with hate because he knows there were many irregularities and questions about the 2020 election that, like a spoiled brat, he’s acting out using a weaponized DOJ to do so. Send him into “time out” NOW.
