January 8, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Incoming Democrat President Joe Biden announced the return of another name from the Obama administration Thursday with his selection of Judge Merrick Garland as his nominee to become Attorney General of the United States.

Biden called Garland, former President Barack Obama’s nominee to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court (a seat President Donald Trump eventually filled with Justice Neil Gorsuch) “one of the most respected jurists of our time, and specifically cited his work supervising the prosecutions of Oklahoma City bombers Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols and “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski in the 1990s.

In related remarks, Biden called the Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday “insurrectionists” and “domestic terrorists,” whom his and Garland’s Department of Justice would “take on.”

“Today, we are at another inflection point. Some of the challenges we face are familiar — racial inequality; the need for criminal justice reform; domestic terrorism and threats to public safety,” Garland himself declared. “Yesterday’s horrific events at the Capitol reminded us that our democracy cannot be taken for granted — that our nation has a long history of disinformation and racial terror.”

For the next two years, state legislators will be the last line of defense against a radical, leftist ideology invading every aspect of our lives.

Our federal institutions - especially, the judiciary - utterly betrayed America and the Constitution in their dereliction of duty towards seeking the truth in the outcome of the 2020 election.

And now, with the Senate in the hands of the leftists, freedom-loving Americans must DEMAND that our state institutions, and every patriotic state legislator, do everything in his or her power to oppose the assaults on our Freedom, on Life, on Family, and on Faith which are sure to come from Washington, D.C. after January, 20th.

Please SIGN this petition and DEMAND that state legislators, in every state, PLEDGE to defend America from the tyranny of the Left.

January 6th, 2021 will be remembered by patriotic Americans, for generations to come, as a turning point.

January 6th will be remembered as conservative America's vote of no confidence in official institutions. Simultaneously a primordial cry for freedom and a tragic scene where the last vestiges of law and order succumbed under the reality of current events.

(After you have signed this petition, take a couple of minutes to personally contact your state legislators by email, Twitter, or by phone, using the Voter Voice tool provided to you by LifeSite. With one click of a button, you can contact them without having to look up any contact details yourself!)

Don't be mistaken: unlike so many politicians who are supposed to be on our side, the left almost always follows through with what they set out to do. So, yes, you can believe all of the predictions of impending doom for conservative causes.

Therefore, we must now DEMAND that our state legislators ACT to defend us from the federal government's future attempts to attack our freedoms, human life, the natural family, and our right to freely practise our faith.

And we, ourselves, must also be willing to strongly advocate for those freedoms, for life, for family and for our Faith.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition. And then, please take 5 minutes to contact your local state representatives using the Voter Voice link below. With Voter Voice, it really couldn't be easier.

Thank you!

Dozens of protesters entered the U.S. Capitol Building on Wednesday after the “March to Save America” rally where the president said supporters would march “over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,” where “we're going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen-and-women” who were meeting to formally object to the certification of electoral votes from a handful of states.

As covered live by LifeSiteNews, viral videos showed groups of protesters engaging in physical altercations with police, pushing against security barricades, breaking through a window, trespassing in congressional offices, and climbing on walls, causing the vote certification to be suspended and lawmakers to be evacuated from the chambers. While many were allowed to enter by police and simply walked through the building (which is normally open to the public) after the initial breach, there were several deaths, including a protester shot by Capitol Hill police, a protestor trampled amid the chaos, a police officer whose cause of death is unknown but is being investigated as a potential murder, and several due to unspecified “medical emergencies.”

Trump told the breachers to “go home in peace” via tweets and video message, yet a coalition of Democrats and establishment Republicans quickly decided that Trump had “incited” the violence, some by blaming his support of marching to the building (which was a pre-planned part of the event, advertised before Trump’s remarks), others by blaming Trump’s refusal to concede in the first place.

The Wall Street Journal added that Biden “has said he plans to make a priority of passing a law against domestic terrorism, and he has been urged to create a White House post overseeing the fight against ideologically inspired violent extremists and increasing funding to combat them.”

Conservatives fear such measures would be used to persecute peaceful, mainstream conservative groups and critics of the Democrats, while continuing to downplay and ignore the more frequent and widespread violence of liberal-aligned groups, such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM).

Even while condemning Wednesday’s crimes, Biden claimed that BLM protesters “would have been treated very differently” by law enforcement. In fact, BLM has been treated differently over the past year, but contrary to Biden’s implication, they were handled much more leniently, such as in Seattle, where BLM and associated anarchists were allowed to “seize six square blocks of the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood” and renamed it the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ) or “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” (CHOP). Police were “ordered to abandon their precinct within the CHOP,” leading to a 525 percent increase in crimes such as homicide, robbery, and assault.
