  • ‘Four Hours at the Capitol’: Powerful HBO documentary takes no sides

    10/26/2021 6:19:25 AM PDT · by lowbridge · 26 replies ^ | October 19, 2021 | Richard Roeper
    Perhaps some viewpoints WILL be changed by watching this documentary, which carries no distinct political slant and employs an old-fashioned “fly on the wall” technique, thus allowing the footage and the comments from participants on both sides to speak for itself. You can hear the sometimes-heartbreaking recollection of U.S. representatives and their staffers, journalists who were in the midst of the fray and police officers who were under attack and in some cases feared for their lives, and then hear from the insurrectionists who speak with boastful pride and zero regret about their nauseating actions that day — and while...
  • Meet Ray Epps: The Fed-Protected Provocateur Who Appears To Have Led The Very First 1/6 Attack On The U.S. Capitol

    The story of the mystery man, Ray Epps, featured in Rep. Massie’s video above is in fact far more shocking than even the good Congressman implies in the hearing. It’s a story so strange, and so scandalous at every turn, that it threatens to shatter the entire official narrative of the “Capitol Breach” and expose yet another dimension of proactive federal involvement in the so-called “insurrection” of January
  • Tuberville says ask Nancy Pelosi, ‘Were you warned?’ about Jan. 6 riots at Capitol

    In his weekly press briefing Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville answered a question about the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. “I want to know what we knew,” Tuberville said. “Hopefully, they get Nancy Pelosi and put her on the stand and ask her, ‘Did you know? Were you warned by the FBI?’ Because you, Nancy Pelosi, are in charge of the Capitol. You’re in charge of the security of the Capitol. We never hear anything like that.” Tuberville said the House panel investigating Jan. 6 is partisan and invalid. “The first thing I...
  • 'I Want The Sentence To Hurt': Judge Imposes Largest Fine Yet on Capitol Riot Couple

    On Friday, a federal judge imposed the largest fine yet in any Capitol riot case. U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton sentenced husband and wife Thomas Vinson and Lori Vinson to five years of probation and 120 hours of community service for their participation in the January 6 insurrection. The Kentucky couple was also ordered to pay $5,000 each, which Buzzfeed's Zoe Tillman noted is the largest fine so far. "I know that's a lot, but I want the sentence to hurt," Walton said. In July, the Vinsons pleaded guilty to charges of entering and remaining in a restricted building; disorderly...
  • Robert Mueller Investigated For Staging Alleged Militia Hoax Now Used To Prosecute Jan 6 Defendant The Feds Are Out of Control

    10/21/2021 5:52:11 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 34 replies ^ | October 20, 2021 | PATRICK HOWLEY
    The FBI under former director Robert Mueller stands accused of staging a hoax in Madisonville, Tennessee in 2010 to falsely entrap a man on a rare gun charge — and that case is now used as precedent to prosecute a January 6 protester on the same rare gun charge. Evidence provided to National File suggests that Mueller’s FBI completely invented the details of a supposed militia attempt to take over a courthouse, framing a man named Darren Wesley Huff. One of Mueller’s top deputies is alleged to have provided a false statement that contradicts numerous other sworn statements and evidence...
  • US Marshals: We're Looking To See If The January 6 Defendants Are Being Deliberately Mistreated

    The feds have locked up hundreds of people connected to the January 6 riot. That’s all it was, by the way. It was a riot. It was not a violent insurrection. It wasn’t an armed coup. It wasn’t worse than the American Civil War. It sure as hell wasn’t worse than the 9/11 attacks. It was mostly a bunch of people walking around inside the Capitol Building. It’s why Democrats don’t want us to see all the security camera footage. It’s bland and boring as hell—far from the "end of the republic" narrative they’ve been stroking for months. Get over...

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), the chairman of the House select committee investigating the January 6 riot at the Capitol, said the public would be shocked at the findings of their probe. Maddow said, “Can I ask you if you feel like thus far you have learned things that surprise you? You have, obviously, you are not ready to report what you found, not ready to tell the country what the results of your investigation are, but as far as it’s gone thus far, have you learned things that surprised you? Have you learned...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Ky.) said late Tuesday that former White House strategist Steve Bannon’s refusal to cooperate with the House committee investigating the Capitol riot suggests President Trump was "personally involved in the planning and execution of January 6th." "Based on the committee’s investigation, it appears that Mr. Bannon had substantial advance knowledge of the plans for January 6th and likely had an important role in formulating those plans. Mr. Bannon was in the war room at the Willard on January 6th. He also appears to have detailed knowledge regarding the president’s efforts to sell millions of Americans the fraud...

    The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday evening unanimously approved a criminal contempt report against Steve Bannon, an ally of former President Donald Trump's, for defying a subpoena from the panel. The vote sends the measure to the full House for a planned vote Thursday. If the chamber approves it, the referral would be sent on to federal law enforcement for potential charges. The nine-member committee, made up of seven Democrats and two Republicans, was united in their scathing response to Bannon's refusal to come before the panel. Bannon no-showed for a deposition...

    Over the objection of Joe Biden’s Justice Department, a lengthy video clip showing U.S. Capitol Police allowing hundreds of people into the building on the afternoon of January 6 has been released to the public. In July, Ethan Nordean, an alleged Proud Boy member charged for various crimes now held in a Seattle jail awaiting trial, petitioned the court to remove the “highly sensitive” designation on surveillance video that recorded Nordean entering the building with permission by U.S. Capitol Police. A group called the Press Coalition, representing news organizations including CNN, the New York Times, and the three major broadcast...
  • Civil Liberties Are Being Trampled by Exploiting "Insurrection" Fears. Congress's 1/6 Committee May Be the Worst Abuse Yet

    When a population is placed in a state of sufficiently grave fear and anger regarding a perceived threat, concerns about the constitutionality, legality and morality of measures adopted in the name of punishing the enemy typically disappear. The first priority, indeed the sole priority, is to crush the threat. Questions about the legality of actions ostensibly undertaken against the guilty parties are brushed aside as trivial annoyances at best, or, worse, castigated as efforts to sympathize with and protect those responsible for the danger. When a population is subsumed with pulsating fear and rage, there is little patience for seemingly...

    nly person killed during the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol Building as a result of direct action taken by others, was an Air Force veteran who served the country proudly for more than a dozen years, but according to her mother, she was denied a military burial earlier this year. Babbitt, who was shot and killed by Lt. Michael Byrd as it appeared as though she was about to crawl through the broken window of a door leading to the House floor, should have been able to be buried with full military honors, her mother, Micki Witthoeft, told...

    President Joe Biden spoke at the 40th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service on Saturday, using the occasion to push gun control, police reform, and the narrative that the January 6 protests were an “insurrection” and a fundamental threat to democracy. The president spoke on the steps of Capitol Hill, praising the Capitol Police who defended the building during the January 6 protests. “Here, nine months ago, your brothers and sisters thwarted an unconstitutional and fundamentally un-American attack on our nation’s values and our votes,” Biden said. “Because of you, Democracy survived.”

    A Capitol Police officer is facing two counts of obstruction of justice for allegedly trying to help someone avoid being prosecuted for the Jan. 6 riot by telling them to change Facebook posts to indicate they were not in the Capitol at the time of the riot. The Capitol Police officer, Michael Angelo Riley, had been with the department for more than 25 years when he was indicted for allegedly helping someone, referred to as “Person 1” in court documents obtained by Law & Crime. The court documents allege that Person 1 had accepted a friend request from the Capitol...

    Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, who testified before Congress on Tuesday about her former employer, will be meeting with House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, CNN reported, citing three sources. The House select committee could hear from Haugen as early as Thursday, according to the network. The lawmakers on the committee are tasked with investigating the events surrounding the Jan. 6 insurrection, in which supporters of former President Trump stormed the Capitol in an effort to stop Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s 2020 election win. CNN reported that the committee wants to know from Haugen how...

    A Facebook whistleblower revealed her identity in a Sunday night interview while trashing the social media giant for prioritizing divisive content over safety to garner higher profits. Frances Haugen, 37, spoke out publicly for the first time since quitting Facebook in May when the company dismantled her unit that attempted to address misinformation on the popular platform. Before leaving the company, Haugen copied thousands of pages on internal documents — some of which had already been reported on — to back up her claims. “The thing I saw at Facebook over and over again was there were conflicts of interest...

    While the rest of the country comes to its senses and realizes that "Jan. 6" was a way overblown example of fake news intended to crush dissent from the vantage point of wokedom, here comes The New York Times to assert that "Jan. 6 Was Worse Than We Knew." Methinks the dissembling Times is desperately employing a smokescreen, the better to divert attention from the disaster the Biden presidency has proven to be, from the unconditional surrender to the Taliban to Biden's failure, thus far, to rally the country to the banner of his "spend until economic ruination" paralyzes the...
