Jill Duggar: Taunting Jim Bob Following Government Raid?

These are wild times for reality TV's most famous fundamentalists.

As you've likely heard by now, the Duggars' property was raided by federal agents last week.

Details have been slow to trickle in, thanks in part to the family's obfuscation efforts, but at least one Arkansas media outlet has remained dogged in its pursuit of the truth.

Northwest Arkansas NBC affiliate KNWA has confirmed that despite the Duggars' denials, the family has caught the attention of federal authorities.

Initial reports that Josh Duggar's home was raided by the FBI proved to be inaccurate, but it wasn't kong before the truth emerged.

It now looks as though the Duggars are under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security.

A Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) spokesperson confirmed this week that agents were present at a car lot owned by Josh -- a car lot that is suspiciously no longer open for business.

It's impossible to say at this point what will come of all this.

It could be much ado about nothing, or it could be the start of yet another Duggar scandal.

Whatever the case, it seems Jill Duggar is unconcerned.

As you may recall, Jill's husband, Derick Dillard, was fired by TLC back in 2017, and he's been more or less estranged from his in-laws ever since.

Last month, Derick went on a rant against his father-in-law, in which he seemed to imply that Jim Bob would soon be held accountable for his shady financial dealings.

All of this might serve to explain why Derick and Jill have refused to sheepishly bury their head in the sand like the rest of the family.

The Duggars have maintained a united front throughout this latest crisis, universally denying any wrongdoing and keeping social media activity to a bare minimum.

Jill Duggar Got Her Hair Done

But Jill and Derick aren't sticking to the family strategy.

In fact, Jill has been especially active on social media these past few days.

Earlier this week, the mother of two posted a video in which she's seen showing off a new Bible that she apparently received as a gift.

The cover of the Bible bears an inscription reading:

The Dillards' New House

“She believed she was loved and it made her brave."

We probably don't need to tell you that when it comes to the Duggars, the public tends to favor the most dramatic interpretations for every situation.

And so, Jill's social media activity and fancy new Bible are being interpreted as subtle shots at Jim Bob.

Is she saying she's been brave in the face of mistreatment from her family?

Or is she saying she doesn't need to be brave because she's not under criminal investigation?

Either way, we're guessing JB is less than thrilled.
