    The wife of Department of Justice-targeted pro-life activist Mark Houck is speaking out about her husband's arrest, which she says included at least 20 armed FBI agents and more than a dozen vehicles.

    The DOJ charged Houck over an incident that occurred last year involving his then-12-year-old son at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility. The family says Houck, who is now facing 11 years behind bars and fines up to $350,000, was defending his child from a harassing pro-abortion activist.

    "They're scared, there's a lot of crying," wife Ryan-Marie Houck, who has seven children with husband Mark, said of the arrest.

    Ryan-Marie told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that, from her estimation, there could have been up to 30 armed feds at her home on Friday and at least 15 vehicles.

    "It had to have been 20, 25, 30 - we have a large property, my entire front yard, you could barely see it," she recalled. "It was covered with at least 15 trucks and cars."

    She added that her children have been receiving and will continue to receive counseling over the raid,

    Joining Ryan-Marie was Thomas More Society Vice President Peter Breen, representing the Houcks with the legal case.

    "The Philadelphia DA refused to press charges - and he's not a friend of pro-life, he's a [George] Soros ally," Breen explained. "Then the alleged victim filed a private criminal complaint, which eventually the local courts threw out because the guy couldn't be bothered to show up to the hearings."

    That's where the handling of the incident should have stopped, the attorney asserted. But the DOJ chose to target Houck to send a message to pro-lifers, he claimed. "They took an innocent man and made an example out of him," Breen said.

    "We offered to bring [Houck] in - we didn't get a response," he explained, adding that the arrest was "outrageous and uncalled for."

    Earlier in the week, Breen similarly called the arrest "a political prosecution."

    "And what's clear from the Department of Justice at its highest levels, which is directing this case, [is] that they are trying to send a message to pro-life and people of faith: 'Don't mess with us,'" the attorney said. "They want to intimidate - they want to cause good people like Mark to stop praying and counseling at the abortion clinics of our country. And that's not going to happen."

Considering what is being reported as the most divisive presidential speech - September 1, 2022 - in modern American history, where over 74,000,000 people, many of whom are OUR greatest patriots, were named as fascists by inference or otherwise: Is Joe Biden clearly capable of governing all of the American People to the betterment of this Representative Republic?
  Yes, it is important that Haters are named.
  No, Joe Biden cannot accept criticism when the real truth is his cruelest taskmaster.
  I have no idea what is going on because I only consume Democratic Socialist Media.

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.

With respect to the leaked opinion not yet written for ratification regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's revisiting the original decision of Roe v Wade, whence now nonstop protests have erupted in neighborhoods where U.S. Supreme Court justices live, exhibiting the firm intent to intimidate these officers of the highest court in the land: What action should the federal authorities take?
  Do nothing ... Protests are a fixture of a free society.
  Enforce the law ... Federal codes exist to prohibit any intimidation through the pubic harassment of federal judges, especially Supreme Court justices.
  I have no idea, however, northern Virginia School Board Members must be shielded from protests at all costs.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
