    I am a huge fan of Dov Fischer. He’s smart, funny, and very insightful. I shouldn’t be surprised then that Fischer has written what I think is the best article putting the events of January 6 in their proper perspective. The premise is a simple one: “I remain adamant that January 6 was not an insurrection. To say otherwise is a despicable lie.” This is an important point. By calling events on January 6 an insurrection, the Biden administration is getting away with grossly abusing the rule of law and the Constitution to punish the people who were present at...
  • National Police Association slams Jan. 6 probe as ‘dog and pony show,' calls for investigation of Floyd riots

    The National Police Association on Wednesday slammed Congress’ investigation of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot as a politically motivated "dog and pony show" that has no intention of uncovering the truth of what really happened that day. In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, association spokeswoman Betsy Brantner Smith, a retired police sergeant who describes herself as a conservative, said Congress should hear from the thousands of police officers who were injured during the George Floyd riots last year. "People need to see that police officers go through horrible things, and Jan. 6 was a horrible thing for some...

    Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio suggested Wednesday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had been responsible for the security presence at the US Capitol on January 6, after Pelosi rejected his appointment to serve on the select committee investigating the insurrection. "Why wasn't there a proper security presence at the Capitol that day," Jordan asked at a news conference after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pulled all five members he had tapped for the committee in response to Pelosi rejecting two of them. The Ohio Republican added, "Only one person can answer that question. Only one. The Speaker of the...

    Fox News ^ | June 16, 2021 | Tucker Carlson is a new site and turned out to be one of the last honest outlets on the internet. A new piece on the site suggests an answer to some of these questions. We know the government is hiding the identity of many law enforcement officers who were present at the capitol on January 6, not just the one who killed Ashli Babbitt. According to the government's own court filings, those law enforcement officers participated in the riot. Sometimes in violent ways. We know that because, without fail, the government has thrown the book at most of the people who...
  • Report on What Happened to BLM Organizer Who Was at Capitol Protest, More on Antifa Presence (John Sullivan)

    Democrats and liberal media have already dismissed the concept of radical leftists or Antifa being at the Capitol protest, that all the people there were Trump supporters. But as we reported, that’s not exactly true. What is true was there was at least some radical leftist presence there among the Trump supporters. What they did or what influence they may have had in the action is not clear. BLM protest organizer John Sullivan who frequently posted with BLM and Antifa hashtags was there at the doors to the Speaker’s Lobby next to Ashli Babbitt when she was shot. In fact,...

    Reading between the lines – and paying special attention to what the government refuses to say – tells us that we’ve been fed propaganda, not facts. It takes three days after any event to find out what happened, and 30 days to find out what really happened. The dust storm of information and misinformation takes a while to settle in the perpetually-online United States. The truth lodges in fewer places now. Emigres from the 1970’s Soviet Union advised us that the only real information in Pravda lay between the lines. So it is with the bulk of U.S. media, which...
  • FBI Director Wray won’t share Officer Brian Sicknick’s cause of death with senators

    FBI Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday refused to tell senators the cause of death for Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, whose death heavily influenced coverage of the Capitol riot. Reports after Jan. 6 originally said Sicknick died after being bludgeoned by a fire extinguisher while fighting off then-President Donald Trump’s supporters, which authorities didn’t deny at the time. The claim became part of the impeachment trial case against Trump for allegedly inciting the riot — though his family now says it’s untrue. Wray cited an “ongoing” investigation into Sicknick’s death. “I certainly understand and respect and appreciate the keen interest...
  • US takes back its assertion that Capitol rioters wanted to 'capture and assassinate' officials

    ustice Department prosecutors have formally walked back their assertion in a court filing that said Capitol rioters sought to "capture and assassinate elected officials." A federal prosecutor in Arizona asked a magistrate judge in a hearing on Friday to strike the line in a recent court filing about defendant Jacob Anthony Chansley, a man who is alleged to have led some in the crowd in the first wave into the Capitol with a bullhorn while carrying a spear and wearing a fur headdress. The entire line the prosecutors want to omit from their court filing is: "Strong evidence, including Chansley's...

    John Sullivan was arrested yesterday for his involvement in instigating the Capitol riots on January 6th. A video of him and CNN photojournalist Jade Sacker emerged this week that showing them giddy following the death of Trump-supporter Ashli Babbitt. John Sullivan can allegedly be heard egging on protesters in video he provided to the FBI, according to a federal criminal complaint. He has also shared the video to his YouTube and Twitter accounts under the pseudonym Jayden X. He was charged Thursday in federal court in Washington after being arrested by the FBI. He remains in custody in Toeele County,...

    IN HIS highly entertaining 2018 travelogue, Another Fine Mess, English journalist Tim Moore drove an old Ford Model T through the American regions which had voted most heavily in favour of Donald Trump. A self-confessed “typical liberal”, Moore was curious about the kind of people who would vote for a man that Moore and his peers viewed with a mixture of contempt and derision. As it happened, the author was surprised to discover that the vast majority of those Trump supporters he encountered were kind, good natured and eager to offer a helping hand. He freely admitted that they flew...

    THEY came. They stormed. They wandered. On screen, a ragged line of polyester-clad insurgents sauntering through the vestibule of the Capitol, the red ropes on brass stands confirming their status of visitor or tourist to the home of their government. At the cordon, they seemed to lose their anarchic zeal, lining up between the ropes, raising their phones to record the moment of their arrival, literal and metaphoric. An incongruous sight. Shock came with the signal shaman in bared teeth, chest, furs, horns; the ‘freedom-fighter’ advertising Camp Auschwitz; rebels in assorted MAGA gear designed by fear, embroidered by hate, the...
