The long arm of the law reached down today and arrested eleven (11) people in Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Alabama and Georgia, charGing them with seditious conspiracy in connection with the fatal January 6, 2021 attack on our Nation's Capitol.
Thanks to federal law enforcement and the citizens who have told the truth on these reprehensible radicals, who tried to steal our democracy by halting the Electoral College on January 6, 2021, a date that will forever live in infamy.
To the alleged seditious conspirators and enablers, God forgive you for your evil acts.
Federal courts and juries will decide their fate.
In the words of the ancient equitable maxim;
Let justice be done though the heavens fall.
Fiat justitia ruat caelum
