    There’s going to be a rally in Washington DC this weekend. It’s why the fencing is going back up around the US Capitol Building. There have been over 400 arrests stemming from the January 6 riot that has incorrectly been dubbed an armed insurrection. It was not worse than 9/11. It was not worse than Pearl Harbor and it sure wasn’t as bad as the Civil War. That’s the narrative in newsrooms. Everyone else has moved the hell on with their lives. NO ONE cares. MSNBC and CNN don’t count. It was not our nation’s best day. It was dark...
  • Half of America Says Jan 6 Protesters are ‘Persecuted, Political Prisoners’... New Rasmussen data reveals a dark underbelly to the Biden regime.

    Peaceful protesters caught in the maelstrom of the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol are being held as “political prisoners” and are being persecuted by law enforcement, says a plurality of American voters. The data, from a new Rasmussen poll, reveals that 49 percent of American “likely voters” either strongly or somewhat agree with the concept that the U.S. government is holding political prisoners. Forty-two percent are in disagreement, with nine percent “unsure”. This means more people than not believe the January 6th protesters are being unjustly held by their government. Recent reports suggest some of the individuals still...

    Washington, DC – The fence around the U.S. Capitol complex that was erected after the Capitol riot will be put back up ahead of the Sept. 18 rally in support of the rioters who were arrested on Jan. 6, and law enforcement officials have promised lawmakers there will not be another breach of the U.S. Capitol building. The “Justice for J6” protest is in support of the more than 600 people who have been arrested so far for their participation in the Capitol riot, Reuters reported. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) Chief Thomas Manger briefed House and Senate leadership on Monday...

    First, some blamed the deadly Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol on left-wing antifa antagonists, a theory quickly debunked. Then came comparisons of the rioters to peaceful protesters or even tourists. Now, allies of former President Donald Trump are calling those charged in the Capitol riot “political prisoners,” a stunning effort to revise the narrative of that deadly day. […] “Some people are calling it Jan. 6 trutherism — they’re rewriting the narrative to make it seem like Jan. 6 was no big deal, and it was a damn big deal, and an attack on our democracy,” said Heidi...

    Even in this toxic political atmosphere, will American juries consent to criminalize previously lawful political protest in the nation’s capital? More than eight months after the worst attack on Washington since the Civil War, as Joe Biden describes it, not a single American has been charged with sedition or treason related to the alleged “insurrection” on January 6, 2021. (SNIP) But the Justice Department’s premier felony charge—obstruction of an official proceeding—is on shaky legal ground, to say the least. It’s a substitute for the sedition cases they cannot prove in court. Prosecutors have slapped the felony count, which is punishable...

    A second federal judge in Washington questioned whether the lead felony charge leveled by the government against Capitol riot defendants is unconstitutionally vague, as 18 Oath Keepers accused in a conspiracy case urged the court on Wednesday to toss out a count carrying one of the heaviest penalties against them. U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta asked how federal prosecutors distinguish felony conduct qualifying as “obstructing an official proceeding” of Congress — punishable by up to 20 years in prison — from misdemeanor offenses the government has charged others with, such as shouting to interrupt a congressional hearing. “Essentially, what...

    Members of Congress and law enforcement are bracing for potential security threats on Sept. 18 when a “Justice for J6” rally is planned to support the more than 570 people charged with crimes related to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. The Capitol Police are expected to present their security plan to the Capitol Police Board this week, according to a congressional source, while the Metropolitan Police Department is also expected to ramp up its presence for the planned rally near the Capitol’s west front. The group organizing the rally, Look Ahead America, is led by Matt Braynard, who...

    The QAnon supporter who chased Officer Eugene Goodman near the Senate chamber during the US Capitol insurrection was sent back to jail Thursday, in part because he violated the rules of his release by going online to access conspiracy theories about the 2020 election. Those conditions included a prohibition on using the internet -- to keep Jensen away from the QAnon conspiracy, which he previously admitted to investigators was the reason he breached the Capitol. But when court officials made their first unannounced visit to check on Jensen at his home last month, they found him in his garage, using...

    The attorney for the Capitol rioter known as “QAnon Shaman” said that his client will plead guilty to charges stemming from the deadly insurrection, HuffPost reported. Attorney Albert Watkins said that Jacob Chansley, also known as QAnon Shaman, has reached a plea deal with prosecutors in his case. Chansley is facing multiple federal charges, including a felony count of obstructing an official proceeding and a felony charge of civil disorder, according to HuffPost. Watkins said that Chansely doesn’t want to be associated with QAnon anymore, saying his client experienced “pain, depression, solitary confinement,” among other mental health issues after participating...

    The Justice Department on Wednesday secured its 50th guilty plea in the January 6 insurrection, a key milestone as it nears its 600th arrest in the massive investigation. In the eight months since the attack on the US Capitol, the investigation has ballooned into a nationwide manhunt for the Trump supporters and right-wing extremists who stormed the building and grounds, assaulted dozens of police officers and temporarily halted the certification of President Joe Biden's victory. Nearly 600 people from 44 states and Washington, DC, have been charged in federal court, according to CNN's latest tally, with authorities announcing new arrests...

    Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) is describing those in law enforcement custody for allegedly storming the Capitol on Jan. 6 in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying President Biden's election victory as "political hostages" while repeating false claims that the 2020 election was "stolen." Cawthorn made the remarks over the weekend during an event with supporters that was streamed on Facebook by the Macon County Republican Party. During the event, which included a question-and-answer session with constituents, Cawthorn cast doubt on Biden's legitimate electoral victory over former President Trump and warned of violence "if our election systems continue to be...

    January 6 detainees stand before a judge in federal court to adjudicate conspiracy charges and allegations of domestic terrorism after languishing in a Washington, D.C. jail for months, at first glance they may be mistaken for cavemen or Islamic jihadists. Inmates who refuse to get an experimental COVID19 vaccination are prohibited from using razors, getting haircuts, endure even longer periods of solitary confinement and are barred from visitation privileges, their families explained in an exclusive interview with The Gateway Pundit. Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, an Army reservist who worked on a Naval base in New Jersey, was apprehended on January 15 after...

    WASHINGTON—Attorney General Merrick Garland’s move last month to limit Justice Department probes of journalists is facing an early test from an unlikely source: a federal judge overseeing a criminal case against a talk-show host on Infowars, a right-wing website known for touting discredited conspiracy theories. In an order made public Tuesday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Zia Faruqui said prosecutors refused to answer on the record whether they had complied with the department’s updated media policy when seeking a warrant to arrest the talk-show host, Owen Shroyer, for his alleged involvement in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. “The events...

    FBI Report DEBUNKS Democrat Lies About Jan 6th, Says it Was NOT Coordinated By Trump or Anyone Else. The new report shines a light on the reality of january 6th. It was not an insurrection or a coup attempt, it was an angry riot. While many of the men and women at the capitol were there causing trouble and will face justice, most people were just there to see the president speak and left peacefully. But some walked into open doors, some were allowed in by police. The democrat narrative of republicans trying to overthrow the election has collapse. Negative...
