(Congress Report) – Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced that they will be filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Justice Department for records pertaining to the use of the United States Marines for the highly controversial September 1, 2022 campaign speech delivered by President Joe Biden in the city of Philadelphia. I’m sure you all remember that doozy. The one with the red background that made Biden look like some sort of angry old tyrant in the same vein as Mussolini or Hitler. Kind of hard to forget that one.
According to a release from Judicial Watch, the president was panned for using the Marines as props during a political speech that was used to attack an entire group of Americans, which he dubbed “MAGA Republicans,” calling them a threat to our nation’s democracy. Once again, I feel compelled to inform folks that we do not live in a democracy. Our country is a constitutional republic. Huge difference between the two.
“Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the Department of Defense failed to comply with an October 31, 2022, FOIA request for all communications within the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Secretary of the Navy, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and Commandant of Marine Corps – and those shared with the White House Military Office and Office of the President – regarding Marines standing behind the President during his September 1, 2022, speech in Philadelphia,” the release continued. “Speaking on September 1 in front of a red backdrop and flanked by two Marines, Biden claimed Trump supporters ‘represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.'”
“Biden’s infamous ‘Red Speech,’ which included the abuse of our Marines in its totalitarian imagery, painted a target on Trump and tens of millions of Americans for political suppression and worse,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton remarked. “And, to make matters worse, the Pentagon is violating federal law by hiding records about Biden’s misuse of our military in his attempt to intimidate Americans.”
Bob Unruh of WND wrote that Biden made the claim during his infamous speech that “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”
The president added, “There is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.”
“MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election. And they’re working right now, as I speak, in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine democracy itself,” Biden continued.
Ever since that speech, Biden has had a change of heart — it’s fake and politically motivated of course — making a call for both major political parties in the U.S. to be civil to one another. This sudden tonal shift came about after the Republican Party officially took control of the House of Representatives.
While using federal assets to help drop the hammer on his own political opponents, Biden said, “MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies.”
The president then stated he would choose a different path and would reject “violence as a political tool.”
“We are still, at our core, a democracy,” he declared. Again, not a democracy.
Biden then asserted that these so-called “MAGA Republicans” demanded that they either “win or were cheated,” speaking of the 2020 presidential election, which was marred by all kinds of election fraud and shenanigans.
Biden chose Independence Hall for the backdrop of the speech, having red lights installed, which ended up giving the brick wall a rather ominous glow, especially with the Marines standing there.
“Dramatic setup here, with red and blue spotlights coloring Independence Hall and a uniformed member of the military standing on each side of the main door. Several American flags and a long red carpet were behind POTUS as he spoke,” a press pool report noted.
The whole speech was extremely unsettling and was designed to intimidate the so-called “MAGA Republicans” into silence. It failed.
