WASHINGTON, D.C., January 7, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Pundits and Politicos rushed to express outrage over the “storming” of the Capitol yesterday, showcasing their presumed moral superiority.

However, yesterday’s events are unsurprising given the fact that for many, it has felt as if our entire nation has been under martial law for nearly a year. We have been atomized, deprived of church attendance and all other social functions. Schools have been shuttered. We’ve even been denied comforting sick loved ones on their deathbeds.

With millions of small businesses wiped out and tens of millions thrown out of work — as many as 25 million at one point — while elites continued their lives of privilege unruffled, the most powerful and prosperous nation in the history of the world has felt like a third world country.

Heartland America remembers scenes of lone surfers and joggers, moms taking their kids to playgrounds, Christians sitting in their cars in church parking lots, and peaceful pro-life abortion protesters being ticketed or arrested and hauled off by police — despite practicing common sense social distancing.

We can’t forget how cities encouraged citizens to snitch on their neighbors suspected of skirting lockdown orders. And with police departments cracking down on worshipers, retailers, and restaurateurs simply trying to survive, the U.S. has begun to feel more like communist East Germany under the Stasi’s reign of terror rather than the land of the free and the home of the brave.

We have watched in stunned disbelief as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brazenly ripped apart President Donald Trump’s speech as he wrapped up his 2020 State of the Union Address.

We’ve endured the constant hypocrisy of our elected officials’ “Do as I say and not as I do” attitude as they wag their fingers at us. Americans are sick of being scandalized by leaders such as California Governor Gavin Newsom or White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Deborah Birx enacting strict measures and then disregarding their own rules.

We’ve watched in horror as governors and big city mayors condoned and excused destructive violence against private property and then treated those who tried to protect themselves as criminals.

Normal people living peaceful lives, who don’t have a racist bone in their bodies, suddenly have been deemed racists, with everything they do and say judged to be the product of systemic racism.

Catholics suffered having their faith demeaned during Supreme Court nominee confirmation hearings by senators who suggested their Catholicism disqualified the nominees.

The nation watched President Donald Trump targeted by congressional investigations, the FBI and CIA, and hostile media for his entire presidency, while the demonstrably criminal Hillary Clinton skated by, her traitorous actions swept under the rug.

We’ve watched the most pro-life president in the history of the United States, whose list of economic and diplomatic accomplishments is unmatched, be attacked endlessly.

Pictured above c.2009: Lisa Miller with her daughter Isabella

More than 10 years ago, in 2009, Lisa Miller took her daughter Isabella and traveled to Nicaragua because of her deep concern that her daughter was being "traumatized" by court-ordered visits with her former lesbian partner.

Two court-appointed advocates – one clinical therapist and one social worker – testified to the apparent trauma experienced by Isabella in sworn testimony. And, Miller, herself, also testified to the apparent trauma experienced by her daughter.

Other affidavits filed with the courts at that time alleged that abuse was taking place.

And so, in 2009, Miller decided to take action and remove Isabella from a deteriorating situation, traveling to Central America.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which asks President Trump to show clemency to all involved with the Lisa Miller case by granting them a presidential pardon.

Since 2009, three other people – including two Mennonite pastors and a businessman – who helped Lisa and Isabella travel to Nicaragua were convicted of “international kidnapping” for helping Lisa and her daughter, despite the fact that Lisa had custody of her daughter when they went to Central America.

These Mennonite pastors and businessman have already served their time in federal prisons, but their unjust convictions are a stain on their records.  

And now, even though Isabella is considered a legal adult, Lisa Miller is still forced to “hide out” abroad, away from her home country.

The time has come to call an end to the Millers’ exile.

Please SIGN this petition, urging President Trump to issue all involved with Lisa a presidential pardon, and give the Millers a chance to freely return to the United States.

President Trump has been an unwavering ally to the Christian community, and he and his administration have done more for the pro-life cause and religious freedom than all other administrations combined.

By pardoning Lisa and the men who helped her and her daughter, President Trump could once again show his solidarity with the Christians who support and love him and continue to stand with him.

At the time that these events transpired, Miller thought she was doing the right thing to protect her daughter and she has already “served time” in exile.

Therefore, a presidential pardon could never be taken to mean that an actual kidnapping won't be pursued by federal authorities in the future.

But, given the special set of circumstances in this particular case, we urge President Trump to issue the pardon because the time the Millers have spent abroad – away from family, friends, and colleagues – could be considered “time served.”

And, by pardoning Lisa, President Trump could also give Isabella a new lease on life. By pardoning Kenneth Miller and Timothy Miller (who are unrelated to Lisa and Isabella) and Christian businessman Philip Zodhiates, President Trump could clear their records and give them a new lease on life, too.

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

And now many have legitimate concerns that the presidential election has been stolen, and they further believe that those in authority, whether Republicans or Democrats, have done nothing about it.

The political duopoly which runs Washington, together with a kowtowing media industry, have boxed in the average American, constantly reaffirming their judgment against those they deem to be “Deplorables.”

The people who came to Washington today are tired of being given the brushoff; they are Americans, and they did what good Americans do when their leaders prove themselves unfit for the jobs: They took matters into their own hands.

Instead of being polite and allowing themselves to be steamrolled, they did something stunning that got the attention of the nation and the world.

“We’ve been betrayed by Congress, we’ve been betrayed by the judiciary, we’ve been betrayed by our local governments,” one man who entered the U.S. Capitol today told LifeSiteNews.

“You come to the end of your rope. What else am I supposed to do?” he asked. “This was a chance to be a voice for the legitimacy of votes. Finally there was a chance, and we took that chance.”

Good for him. Good for them. And good for us.

“Smug DC elite disrespected 63 mil voters, dismissing them as deplorables & smelly Wal-Mart trash, and subverted their will for 4 years. When 74 mil doubled down on Trump, they wrote them off as chumps & racists,” tweeted Paul Speery, Former D.C. bureau chief for Investor’s Business Daily, Hoover Institution media fellow.

“And now they wonder why they'd be angry enough to storm the Bastille?” he asked.

The photo at the top of this story tells an important story, revealing how Washington elites view regular Americans.
