    A Democrat Congressman from Maryland excoriated Republicans for their investigation into how the Department of Justice and FBI handled the Hunter Biden investigation, declaring that those agencies, as well as the IRS, "keep this democracy in check."

    Rep. Kweisi Mfume (D-MD) spoke during the House Oversight Committee's investigation into the Biden family.

    "We're spending our time talking about Hunter Biden, someone who has already pleaded guilty to not filing his taxes, having a gun charge, and now I hear also paying for prostitution," Mfume noted.

    "Now, here's what galls me," he fumed. "I don't like these attacks on the Department of Justice, the FBI, the IRS, as if they are somehow anti-U.S. agencies. Those agencies keep this democracy in check. They provide the checks and they provide the balance."

    As he concluded his time before the committee, he snapped, "This is ludicrous. Beam me up, Scotty. There's no intelligent life down here. None."

    The hearing featured two IRS whistleblowers, special agent Joseph Ziegler and his supervisor Gary Shapley, testifying on the ongoing investigation into the Biden family, alleging there had been obstruction.

    Shapley told Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) of his attempt to interview Hunter Biden in December 2020: "The FBI, SSA and I were assigned with interviewing Hunter Biden that day. The day previous we went to the FBI LA field office and asked the special agent in charge to contact the Secret Service special agent in charge for the LA field office at 8 a.m. on the morning of December 8 and tell them that two agents were going to approach Hunter Biden as part of an official investigation. The night before, all of that changed."

    "And all of that changed because FBI headquarters and Secret Service headquarters coordinated and that information had gotten out to everybody the night before," Armstrong added. "There was another group of people that was made aware of that the night before, wasn't there."

    "That's correct," Shapley answered.

    "And that would be the transition team," Armstrong finished.

    "That's correct," Shapley agreed.

    "They have any special investigative powers I don't know about?" Armstrong asked.

    "Not that I would know of," Shapley replied.

    "Last question: did you ever get to interview Hunter Biden?" Armstrong asked.

    "We did not," Shapley replied.

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
