FBI Arrests Christian Activist In Guns-Drawn Raid, Leave Children ‘Screaming’

15 FBI vehicles, including SWAT trucks, raided a young couple’s rural home to arrest a man for an incident local police had already dropped

The FBI raided the home of a Catholic activist in Pennsylvania, arresting the man and leaving his wife with his traumatized and screaming children. The arrest, allegedly, because the man violated a Clinton-era law while engaging in street activism.

Christian activist Mark Houck was arrested at his rural home, according to LifeSiteNews, when 15 vehicles, including a SWAT team, stormed the residence with his family inside at 7:05 a.m. yesterday.

Recounting that the couple knew there were police outside, Houck’s wife Ryan-Marie told the outlet that “they started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it.”

She explained that her husband attempted to calm the men, telling them “‘Please, I’m going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house.’ But they just kept pounding and screaming,” reported LifeSiteNews.

When Houck opened the door, federal police stormed the room with rifles drawn, leaving the couple’s children “just screaming” in a panic Ryan-Marie described as “scary and traumatic” for the kids.

Ryan-Marie asserts that the FBI originally refused to let her see the warrant, but eventually retrieved the first page of the document from their vehicle after she accused the men of “kidnapping” her husband at gunpoint.

LifeSiteNews explains that the arrest related to Houck’s Christian activism, but that separate state level charges had already been dropped.

Joe Biden’s Department of Justice, under Merrick Garland, decided to bring their own charges against Houck and raided him with guns drawn, the outlet explained.

Republican Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano released a statement condemning “The continued weaponization of the FBI and persecution by Joe Biden’s DOJ” as “an outrage” and promised that “As Governor, I will not allow the police state of Biden to enforce his persecution against his political enemies on sacred PA soil.”

The law enforcement action comes as a growing number of conservatives fear that the FBI and Department of Justice are being used by Democrats as political weapons to hurt 45th President Donald Trump and his supporters.

FBI whistleblowers are compounding this fear, with one whistleblower recently telling the New York Post that the agency has become totally politicized and obsessed with the January 6 protests. He accused the agency of ignoring child sex crimes to focus on rooting out Trump supporters who attended the protest.

    What crime was committed? Was it the State or Federal government that dropped the charges? Very VITAl questions.

    What about about the FBI tactics?

    Why show up as SWAT teams when there’s no need? Two agents in dark suits and dark glasses wired for security to backup would be sufficient in this type of situation, that of Juiliani’s office and that of Roger Stone’s home.

    Or did they show up as armed troops to terrorize these people and those who hold the same view to portray them as Deplorable domestic terrorists? Didn’t they show up at the former President’s home in like manner?

    Secondly, why are they so often not show the accused the COMPLETE warrant BEFORE entering or searching? Isn’t that required under the 4th Amendment?

      One of these people being harassed by the Gestapo tactics of the Biden Administration are going to bring a class action suit against the FBI, DOJ, etc., get it up to the Supreme court and not only win millions but shut down these unheard tactics. I grew up in the best country in the world and now I live in one of the worse.

    Why the outrage? Citizens of PA show that they approve of this as Fetterman is leading in the polls. PA voted Biden. Citizens get the government that they deserve.

    The Department of Justice (What a misnomer!) and its FBI have become like the Stassi, MVD, or Gestapo. As crazy as it sounds, the US government should be prosecuted under the RICO Act.

    That’s the whole point: To make everyone traumatized and uncomfortable, the point being control. Biden Inc. DOJ is gunning for every “MAGA” Republican, fed charges being 10x heavier than state. It will backfire.
