Video transcript: We dissect the mythology that has arisen around the events of January 6
The GOP needs to release all the videos, not hide them away for 50 years. And if you haven't read through the 'interview' with the 1/6 committee and Ray Epps, I highly recommend it. You'll immediately notice the difference in how they treat him versus other people who were there that day, and how they aren't interested at all in the important details of his story:
Fantastic recap and accounting. Saving for my archives.
Is there a day in the future where we will see a class-action law suit with the protestors as plaintiffs against the media that lied?
THIS article is a historical document. Thank you, because the MSM has been feeding us only "hysterical" documents.
It's disgusting that people are STILL rotting in jail without trial. It's outrageous that a Capitol cop got away with cold blooded murder, and despicably, the mother of the victim was recently arrested, much as would happen in Communist China.
It's going to take a Republican President and Congress to get any justice for these people, and to BRING to justice those politicians and journalists who framed a bunch of nonviolent protesters, all while ignoring if not outright condoning actual violence by leftists.
This is a very good assessment of how J6 has been twisted into something it was not in order to serve the goals of the permanent/deep state.
I think more focus needs to be directed to the stories of the people who participated and who have been persecuted and falsely imprisoned since. That deserves its own monologue/article.
All true, Glenn. But Trump shoulda seen this one coming. If you announce in advance "I'm planning to bring a half million supporters to D.C." you gotta expect the other side to take advantage of the opportunity you've given them. Trump's naivete did him in.
Fantastic analysis! I had believed the propaganda that you have exposed, so you have turned me around at least partially on this Jan. 6 event.
I watched the events of Jan 6th on tv and wondered why no helicopters were overhead? Cops injured---what does that mean? A sprained ankle? What a coincidence that Nancy Pelosi was filmed calling to ask for additional security. A filmmaker just happened to be there? The blood of Ashili Babbitt is on Pelosi's hands.
"...citadel of democacy..." I think most people have a hard time believing how deep, and dirty, the Deep State is.
I'd like to provide some feedback to you about the direction your content has moved. I feel for your family situation and have kept my sub despite the understandable decrease in content. But this subscription has become you simply emailing a transcribe from videos. I am sorry, but that is not the reason I paid for a subscription (to read your videos); nor did I sign up on SS for you to transfer to another outlet that you unilaterally decide to drag my subscription over for the remaining paid months (whatever Locals is). I will forgo the last paid 2 months of my yearly sub, but your consumers should have been offered the option of a refund.
Thank you for laying all of the lies bare and the case of the evolving lies upon lies. How anyone could claim that there is an insurrection when you lack armed paramilitary forces in significant number (500+) is beyond me.
That the DNC and legacy press were able to add to the police 'death count' by counting suicides and unrelated murders makes things all the more sickening, as does the near absence of any focus on the pipe bomber and Ray Epps.
Boylan was clubbed to death t a woman police. All on video with an eyewitness who was there with her.
You said the mob didn't bring a single gun into the Capitol. There is no evidence that that is true. Everybody (but the shaman) were wearing winter coats and could have been packing heat under them.
Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony under oath was that that she heard rump, during or before his speech at the oval, was upset that the oval wasn't full, and asked why the crowd outside the oval wasn't coming in. He was told that the people lingering outside the oval were armed and didn't want to go through metal detectors to get into the oval and have their weapons confiscated. So Trump knew that many people in the mob were armed, and this did not stop him from telling them to march on the Capitol and "fight like hell, because if you don't, you won't have a country any more".
Now the mob never got within line of sight of the politicians they were mad at, so they never had any reason to draw weapons from under their coats.
Eventually Trump told them to go home, which they did. Very few were arrested at the Capitol and searched for weapons. Most of the arrests were by tracking them down by social media posts, at which time it was impossible to prove whether they had been packing heat in the Capitol.
Politicians get death threats from the public all the time. Have a large angry crowd get into the Capitol and nearly reach the politicians without being searched for weapons is a terrible breach of security, and Trump deliberately caused that breach.
The cop who shot Ashleigh Babbit did the right thing. He knew that if she got past him, she'd reach the politicians, and since she hadn't been searched for weapons, it was his duty to assume she was armed. If he tackled her, the next person after her would pass them and reach the politicians. It was his job to lay down the law that anyone who came through that door would die. If you watch the video of that with the audience on, the mob was howling like a pack of rabid wolves -- they couldn't be reasoned with. Hot lead was the only language they would understand.
I agree with everything you say here but only point out that the obvious fruitlessness of the whole thing is not a complete argument against charges against particular people for incitement, attempted interference with the transfer of power, and even felony murder.
Trump and even more clearly Giuliani, had convinced people that an election that wasn't even close had been stolen and that an angry mob could disrupt the process and somehow change the outcome. A small segment of the group believed they were doing that, stopping the steal (and not necessarily unreasonably given what they were convinced had happened). In the foreseeable riot that ensued Ashley Babbit was killed.
None of this will be charged amidst all of the truly fucked up stuff that has been charged and the mass of lies and the government overeach, but as with most complicated situations that are spun into large blatant false narratives, there is that nugget of truth.
Keep up your heroic reporting. You're one of the best we have.
Until the Twitter Files are addressed in Congress in a real way on liberal control of the media, it is all a moot point, IMO.
I'm sure that Nero didn't set fire to Rome. It was the Christian-Bolsheviks who did that, just as the Commune set fire to Paris in 1871 and the Communists set fire to the Reichstag in 1932. — Adolf Hitler
I do wonder if any of the capitol police officers who committed suicide may have been thinking about going on record contradicting the party narrative. Was it suicide, or was it "suicide?"
