ALG Urges Public to Stay Calm and Not Take the Bait

July 18, 2023, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the public to remain calm in response to reports that former President Donald Trump may once again be arrested by the Justice Department, this time for alleged violations of the Insurrection Act:

“Having observed the politicized and weaponized U.S. Department of Justice and how they have used January 6 as an excuse to eviscerate First, Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights, the reported pending arrest of President Donald Trump is a time to respond with a calm resoluteness and dedication to exhausting every ounce of energy to ending this abuse of power at the ballot box.  Any GOP member in Congress who chooses to stand with the DOJ and FBI should be primaried and defeated.  Most know or suspect that the Biden administration secretly hopes for protests which can be goaded into violence.  Do not take the bait.  We have seen the pictures of suspected FBI actors instructing others to lead the attack on the Capitol police barricades on January 6.  Please do not give those who would use any incident as an excuse to escalate their war on individual liberty.

“I am sick of this garbage as much as anyone.  We have one choice.  To beat the corrupt elites in charge of the White House and our intelligence agencies at the ballot box, and then sweep them into the ash heap of history where they belong.  Stay calm, but do not be defeated.”
