The Media’s False & Exaggerated Claims About The Capitol Riot

Post by Riddick » 03-04-2021 01:05 AM

The Capitol riot sent the mainstream press into meltdown. Outlets declared it a terrorist attack and said fascists were trying to seize control of the nation. Commentators made frenzied calls for a ‘domestic war on terror’. In his inaugural address, Joe Biden promised to make security a priority of his administration.

But as journalist Glenn Greenwald highlights, key aspects of the media’s Capitol story have fallen apart. In a piece on Substack, he explodes various myths and tears apart the hysterical tales of ‘armed insurrection’. For all the talk there is virtually no evidence, he says, that arms were present. Claims that rioters intended to ‘capture and assassinate elected officials’ have also since been rejected by the US attorney general.

Then there’s the story, reported by numerous media outlets, that Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick was beaten to death with a fire extinguisher by Trump supporters. ‘The problem with this story is that it is false in all respects’, writes Greenwald. ‘From the start, there was almost no evidence to substantiate it.’

The Capitol riot risks becoming the founding myth for a new era of surveillance and censorship. Read Greenwald’s full piece here.

I know people who will believe anything CNN says about it, including believing things about me that are so nasty.

What Would a Real Capitol Hill Riot Look Like?

Post by Riddick » 04-13-2021 11:06 PM

Edited & Excerpted From Dan Gelernter's American Greatness Article:

By some estimates, 1.5 million Americans showed up on January 6 to protest the theft of their right to vote. They were angry as hell, but overwhelmingly peaceful. Even with the FBI in maximum repression mode, there has been a grand total of 127 arrests. No one burned cars or besieged police stations. What, in contrast, would a million-and-a-half Antifa have done?

Suppose if, instead of saying “let’s walk to the Capitol peacefully,” Trump had said what everyone accuses him of saying. If Trump had one ounce of the autocratic, dictatorial tendencies the press accuse him of having, he need only have asked his supporters to defend him with force. It’s hard to say what would have followed, but it would not have been pretty.

Had he actually encouraged violence, the “Capitol Riot” would have been a bona fide riot. That he never made such a call is patently obvious, most of all to the liars and blackguards who make these accusations. They feel safe to say whatever they want because they secretly understand that Trump is a vastly better man than they.

Trump believes honestly (and in my view correctly) that he won reelection. He believes the most powerful office in the world was stolen from him. Yet he loves America far too much to bring it to violence on his account. His accusers know this, or else they wouldn’t dare utter a peep—because it would actually be dangerous for them.

The current administration takes a cynical view of January 6: It is their Reichstag fire. It is their Beslan school siege. They’re not actually worried about Trump supporters—Trump supporters make lousy rioters. They know that Trump supporters don’t even produce as much violence as Antifa manages on any given afternoon in Portland or Seattle.

All that remains is simulated outrage, and phony pathos. January 6 is nothing but an excuse to attack, intimidate, and even imprison political enemies. The people who continue to lie about January 6 can do so only because they believe they can continue to push with no real consequences. It’s easy to push good people as long as you do it a little at a time.

The only danger is accidentally pushing too far at once. They cry wolf over “domestic terrorism” without understanding that, in a real confrontation, theirs is the losing hand. So it might be instructive for them to take a quiet moment to imagine what January 6 would have looked like if it had actually happened.

Don't Look Now, But...

Climate protesters just tried to take over a federal building in Washington, which is "insurrection" under the new rules ... right??

In what will surely be deemed a harrowing and terrifying Assault on Democracy™, a group of aggressive left-wing protesters attempted to physically occupy the Department of the Interior building on Thursday as a means to further their own political agenda. No doubt the MSM will cover this horrific event exhaustively in the months to come. FULL STORY
..
If the Woke Left didn't have double standards they'd have no standards at all.
But we already knew that.

When Will the Jan. 6 Commission Call in Philip Anderson to Testify?


When will the Jan. 6 Commission call in Philip Anderson to testify?

Philip witnessed the first killing that day.
Phlip was holding Rosanne Boyland’s hand when she died.

In July Trump supporter and activist, Philip Anderson confirmed to The Gateway Pundit that Capitol Police killed Trump protester Rosanne Boyland on January 6.
Philip knows this because he was next to her when she died. He was holding her hand. And Philip nearly died himself.

Activist Philip Anderson spoke with The Gateway Pundit about the Jan. 6 protests at the US Capitol and how the Capitol police murdered Rosanne Boyland and nearly took his life too.

This was an amazing eyewitness report that has been ignored by the fake news media because it does not fit their narrative. A black Trump supporter was gassed with clouds of pepper spray, pushed down, and then nearly trampled to death as police officers continued to push people on top of a pile outside the US Capitol.

Anderson described how Rosanne Boyland was the first woman killed by Capitol police that day.

Ashli Babbitt was the second woman killed by Capitol Hill police.


This photo shows Philip Anderson nearly unconscious being dragged away by Trump supporters after being crushed under a pile on Jan. 6. Roseanne Boylan was next to him when she died.

Philip Anderson fell and was being smothered as police officers continued to push Trump supporters on top of
him. Philip told The Gateway Pundit how he was holding Rosanne’s hand when she died.

A second eye-witness also contacted The Gateway Pundit following our interview with Philip and confirmed his account.

A third eye-witness then contacted The Gateway Pundit last weekend and told her story on how the Capitol Police pushed Trump supporters down the stairs. She was also afraid she would die that day by the actions of the police.

I had no idea that 2 women where killed. I do recall watching the video of the white house cops , opening gates and encouraging all to "come on in", Nancies goon squad set this up, quite well. A set up from the get go.

The Bolsheviks of history and the Democrats Now, very difficult to tell the difference these days. :evil:

January 6 Update: Five Things You Might Have Missed

1) Two Washington D.C. officials have been held in contempt of court for their treatment of January 6 defendant and Proud Boy Chris Worrell.

Judge Royce Lamberth found prison warden Wanda Patten and Washington D.C. Department of Corrections Director Quincy Booth in contempt of court. The judge also ordered a civil rights investigation into the treatment of Worrell and the other January 6 defendants. That means Merrick Garland would lead the case. Oh good. I hope he can take time away from chasing concerned parents “domestic terrorists” at school board meetings.

Worrell was unable to receive medical help for lymphoma, possibly COVID, a broken hand, and a broken tooth, the latter two supposedly received in jail, because necessary medical records were never forwarded to the proper parties. Worrell’s lawyer claims his client was not able to get recommended surgeries.

2) The FBI quietly admitted in August that they couldn’t find proof that January 6 was a planned “insurrection.” One insider went so far as to say that 90-95% of protestors who entered the Capitol were “one-offs.” No one has been charged with sedition/insurrection. Most of those charged have been hit with ridiculous charges like “parading” in the Capitol.

3) Trump-appointed federal judge Trevor McFadden recently stated that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is treating January 6 suspects with more fervor than they used in regards to Antifa and BLM riots in Washington, D.C.


4) Not all the news is good. Judge Chutkan, appointed by Obama, is routinely handing down sentences harsher than what prosecutors are asking for.

Chutkan recently sentenced two cousins to 45 days in jail, after the prosecutors had asked for 30 days, for the crimes of entering the Capitol and taking selfies.

“There have to be consequences for participating in an attempted violent overthrow of the government, beyond sitting at home,” the judge declared in a sentencing hearing. Apparently, the judge didn’t get the message that the FBI found no evidence of a coordinated “insurrection.”

5) Due to the Democrats’ desperate need to keep January 6 relevant, they are now voting to hold former Trump advisor Steve Bannon in contempt of court for not complying with a subpoena.

Bannon is refusing to play ball with the committee. Prosecuting him would fall to the Department of Justice. Garland is probably licking his chops at the chance to go after Bannon. Knowing Garland’s past, Bannon would likely not be facing prosecution if he were to wear a BLM shirt.

The Dems champion those who burn , pilliage and Murder. FREE PASS . But someone standing around the Capital is guilty of ? And gets 6 months hard time. But, then that is exactly how Communism works, intimidate and abuse until submission. Their brand of "Democracy. No trial, just hang them.
