AG Garland Ignores Maine’s Cry For Help

Merrick Garland is the United States Attorney General and heads up our Justice Department, which includes 115,000 employees. Garland is obviously a very busy man working with Joe Biden and Christopher Wray to find ways to target and harass people with a Conservative ideology. He also is too busy and understaffed to respond to an urgent letter of request sent to him in August from a United States Senator and Congressman. For five months, Senator Susan Collins and Congressman Jared Golden have been waiting anxiously to get at least a response from Garland, but their wait continues. I can guarantee that Randi Weingarten doesn’t have to wait five months for a response.

Collins and Golden reached out to Merrick Garland for help with the growing problem of illegal, Chinese-owned pot farms that have popped up in Central Maine. These farms are causing fear, anxiety, and health hazards to the residents of rural Maine by a group of Chinese Nationals that many have claimed are more ruthless than the MAFIA. Collins and Golden’s cry for help has remained unanswered.

Maine is a large rural state with a very low population density. Besides a few large city areas like Portland, Augusta, and Auburn/Lewiston, the state comprises small towns with limited law enforcement resources. The State Police is understaffed and stretched across the state. Real estate is relatively cheap, and all of these factors lead to Maine being a target for the Chinese Cartel’s illegal marijuana farms popping up throughout central Maine. There are as many as 200 of the “farms” identified, but the Maine Congressional Delegation cannot get a response from the Justice Department.

Maine State Reps. Mike Soboleski (R-Phillips) has sponsored L.R. 2903, “An Act to Provide Investigative Authority to the Maine State Police, Sheriffs, and Local Police Regarding Maine’s Recreational Cannabis Laws and Ordinances to Ensure Proper Enforcement,” so we can tackle this crisis head-on and take back our land and protect our Maine way of life,” he said.

The fate of L.R. 2903 will hinge on Thursday’s meeting of the Legislative Council, where the bills that will be considered next year will be decided by legislative leadership. Democrats control Maine’s state government, and it will be interesting to see if this Bill sees the light of day. Democrat Governor Janet Mills refused to comment on this developing situation in her state.

We know the Biden Administration is in bed with the Chinese Government, but does this influence extend to our Justice Department? If Washington can turn its head and ignore 100,000 annual deaths caused by Chinese Fentanyl, is it surprising they have no concern over 200 Chinese Nationals turning Maine homes into Pot Farms? The people of Maine cannot let this effort to get help die, nor can the thousands of people who own seasonal homes in the Pine State. We must support Senator Collins and Representative Golden in their efforts and force Governor Mills out of her silence and into action.

I have written about the current state of Maine and the frustration many of us have over the liberal Marijuana and Abortion bills recently passed. Faced now with a severe safety issue facing their constituents, the politicians have gone underground. This situation is a failure of the Government to do the primary job they are tasked with: to protect the people. It is a shame that these shortcomings are forgotten as we go to the polls, and these inept individuals are rewarded with reelection.
