Inequity in the application of justice between pro-death and pro-life forces
Biden’s Department of Justice prosecutes a Planned Parenthood window breaker, but has yet to arrest the Crisis Pregnancy Center attackers
The Daily Caller reports the inequity in the application of law by the Biden Department of Justice when it comes to protesters around the topic of abortion.
The Justice Department (DOJ) announced Monday that a man pleaded guilty to vandalizing a Planned Parenthood clinic, despite reportedly going months without arresting anyone responsible for a number of attacks on crisis pregnancy centers since May.
Devin Friedrick Kruse entered guilty pleas for two misdemeanor counts of Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act violations, having destroyed property and broken windows at a Grants Pass, Oregon, Planned Parenthood clinic on Nov. 23 and Nov. 26 2021, the DOJ’s press release said. He later claimed to have acted out of anger over Planned Parenthood killing unborn children.
“Citizens have a legal right to peacefully protest, but Mr. Kruse’s actions of repeated violence toward a Planned Parenthood clinic crossed a line,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Kieran L. Ramsey said, according to the press release. “The FBI will continue to work with our federal, state and local law enforcement partners to ensure the safety of our communities while respecting individuals’ First Amendment rights.”
However, as of Sept. 14, the DOJ has so far failed to make any arrests in numerous attacks on crisis pregnancy centers since the Supreme Court’s draft opinion calling for Roe v. Wade’s reversal became public.
The Jane’s Revenge pro-abortion group took credit for vandalizing or setting fire to the facilities of faith-based groups including crisis pregnancy centers on more than 15 occasions between the draft’s May 2 leak and Sept. 14, Fox News reported. None of the attacks had led to an arrest by then.

One late June attack left a Washington D.C. pregnancy center smeared with red paint and eggs, while organizations in Wisconsin and Oregon have reportedly been attacked with Molotov cocktails, according to the Catholic News Agency. A Washington state pregnancy center was spray-painted with “Jane’s revenge” and the words, “If abortions aren’t safe, you aren’t either,” according to KTTH radio host Jason Rantz.

This makes sense, considering the bail-raising Kamala and Joe did for Antifa and BLM
Joe may deny it now, but anyone with a non-Google search engine can link to the articles on how “Joe’s staffers” and “Kamala’s staffers” raised funds to bail out murderers and sex offenders.
Therefore, for someone to get prosecuted for breaking a window of Planned Parenthood while gangs roam free after vandalizing a Crisis Pregnancy Center (a place where women go to get baby formula, food, diapers, job training, and other help) — that makes sense to the radical socialists like Biden.
Inequity in the area of the Mar-A-Lago raid
If this is an “even-handed application of the law,” can Merrick Garland be serious?
The Texas Insider uses the logic of Cal Thomas to point out the illogic of the Biden raid on Mar-A-Lago.
Commenting about the FBI executing a search warrant on former president Donald Trump’s Florida home – which he approved – Attorney General Merrick Garland said:
“Faithful adherence to the rule of law is the bedrock principle of the Justice Department and of our democracy. … All Americans are entitled to the even-handed application of the law, to due process, and to the presumption of innocence.”
None of this applies to the way the Department of Justice, the FBI and most of the media have treated Donald Trump.
From the Steele Dossier, Russia “collusion,” the labeling of Trump as a Russian “asset,” the Mueller Report, and the refusal by the Biden administration to enforce our immigration laws, the Justice Department in this administration has done just the opposite when it comes to equal application of the law and due process.
Whatever one thinks of Trump’s character, he is entitled to the same presumption of innocence as any other American. Trump always suffers from a presumption of guilt. He is forced to continually prove he is innocent of charges, often made by “sources” who leak information to anti-Trump media, or must explain himself to hostile Democrats (and a few hostile Republicans).
The specter of armed federal agents outside Trump’s Florida home is not an image I suspect many of us are comfortable with. Even those who do not like Trump and hope he does not run for president in 2024 should be alarmed at how this focus on him is contributing to what has been a long slide in the trust Americans place in our institutions.
- In 1973, when the Gallup organization began polling on the subject, 42% of respondents had a “great deal/quite a lot” of confidence in Congress.
- This year that number is just 7%.
- In 1991, 73% of the public had a great deal/quite a lot of confidence in the presidency.
- This year only 23% feel that way.
Confidence in the criminal justice system has reached a new low with just 14% coming down on the side of great deal/quite a lot. Is it any wonder with stories of woke prosecutors freeing criminals with low or no bail only to see many of them commit new crimes?
In what should be a warning to the media – a warning that has been apparent for many years – confidence in the trustworthiness of newspapers has declined from a high of 51% in 1979, to a record low of 16% today.
Confidence in TV news reflects a similar drop – from 46% in 1993, to the current 11%.
Perhaps some introspection by the media as to the “root causes” might be beneficial to the profession and the public.
Gallup has recorded similar declines in confidence levels for other institutions, including the church (no wonder with all the scandals and some TV evangelists still living the lifestyles of potentates as opposed to that of the One they claim to follow).

I would be glad if Merrick just applied the standard to Trump once applied to Hillary
Although Hillary was never and will never be president (and, therefore, did not have the authority to determine which documents were classified), it would be nice if the standard of “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case” would be applied to the last President.
Inequity in the courts for Trump protesters
Senator Johnson and colleagues request answers from DOJ on unequal application of justice to Trump protestors
The office of Senator Ron Johnson and a team of conservatives called for attention from the Department of Justice on the unequal treatment of the Trump protesters.
U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), along with senators Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), sent a letter on Monday to Attorney General Merrick Garland requesting information on the unequal application of justice between the individuals who breached the Capitol on Jan. 6, and those involved in the unrest during the spring and summer of 2020. The senators sent 18 questions to the attorney general on what steps the DOJ has taken to prosecute individuals who committed crimes during both events, and requested a response by June 21.
“Americans have the constitutional right to peaceably assemble and petition the government for a redress of grievances,” the senators wrote. “This constitutional right should be cherished and protected. Violence, property damage, and vandalism of any kind should not be tolerated and individuals that break the law should be prosecuted. However, the potential unequal administration of justice with respect to certain protestors is particularly concerning.”

While it would be nice to get an update on this, I know the FBI and DOJ are stonewalling and Ron Johnson is under attack
Although it would be almost imperative to get a resolution on this inequity, you have to know that the true fascists at the FBI and DOJ have stonewalled this. Additionally, Ron Johnson finds himself in what seems to be a tight race.
