As President Trump promised, the “Save America Rally” in the nation’s capital on January 6th was indeed “wild.”
According to the mainstream:
The 2021 storming of the United States Capitol was a failed armed insurrection by Trump supporters against the United States government on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. Incited by President Donald Trump to overturn his defeat in the 2020 presidential election, a mob of thousands of his supporters stormed the United States Capitol in an effort to disrupt the electoral college vote count during a joint session of Congress to formalize President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory. After breaching police perimeters, they occupied, vandalized, and ransacked parts of the building for several hours. The insurrection led to the evacuation and lockdown of the Capitol building and five deaths.
Wikipedia, representing the mainstream, tinkers with the storyline and weaponizes words, therefore influencing people’s perception of history and reality.
But this is a distorted trope. I was there. This narrative is full of tries (truth mixed with lies) and has fallen prey to a bad case of broken telephone. Now that it’s over, the Ministry of Truth can spin it the way they see fit. January 6th represents the birth of a “wide-scale national terror movement” and supposed subsequent formations of “kill or capture teams.” US Attorney Michael Sherwin tells reporters no direct evidence other than “bread crumbs” that suggest coordination among some groups in and outside the Capitol.
But the more than a million people who flocked to D.C. during the joint session of the United States Congress can attest that the event was a mostly peaceful show of support for the President, and a stand against an election rife with an overwhelming amount of election irregularities, allegations of fraud, and unconstitutional voting rule changes.
In fact, many of us spotted bad actors engaging in suspicious activity that day. After pouring over footage, there seems to have been agent provocateurs and agitators, like this woman in a green T-shirt later identified as 22-year-old Riley Williams from Pennsylvania. As the MSM narrative goes, Riley stole Nancy Pelosi’s computer and was going to hand it to the Russians. In any case, when you station agitators who hate Trump’s guts and factor in the “bystander effect,” which is when a crowd goes along for the ride — you get a chaotic mob.
Were innocent patriots led into a trap in a fascistic plot to thoroughly undermine a legal determination of the actual election 2020 votes? What a better false flag to run than fake MAGA supporters storming the capitol building during a constitutional process ?
We bought the bait,” says Sarmo, a musical producer who traveled to D.C. with his father and brother. He caught a lot of shady looking characters on camera egging on the crowd. And then he was banned from FB and IG for sharing his footage. “There were paid actors. I am convinced that both sides are being duped. So many unanswered questions. Feels like the Vegas shooting when it comes to transparency.”
Personally, I feel like I was reduced to a background actor caught in a reality show with bison-hat-wearing, half-naked actors — a Live Action Role Playing (LARP) called “Civil War In The Making: The Ripping Down Of Trump & His Army.”
Even government officials attest there’s more to the narrative being presented.
“Those who stormed the capitol yesterday were not Trump supporters,” claimed Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. “They have been confirmed to be Antifa. Violence is not the answer.”
Meanwhile, Congressman Rep. Mo Brooks was warned on Tuesday by a Capitol Police officer that intelligence suggested fascist ANTIFA was going to try to infiltrate the Trump rally by dressing like Trump supporters,” he said in a January 7 tweet. He was advised to sleep in his office rather than leaving the Capitol complex and sleeping in his condo, which he did for four straight nights.
Also, consider that John Earle Sullivan, who trespassed into the U.S. Capitol through a broken window wearing a ballistics vest and gasmask, is not a Trump supporter. He leads a group called Insurgence USA, founded in the wake of the death of George Floyd. He is suspected of being a BLM activist from Utah, although they affirm no association with him. But in a speech in D.C. in August, he identifies as being part of a violent left-wing revolution and is seen on camera saying “we have to rip Trump out of office.”
In other footage, Sullivan can be seen telling a crowd, over a microphone, “we about to burn this shit down,” “we got to rip Trump out of office . . . f*cking pull him out of that sh*t . . . we ain’t waiting until the next election . . . we about to go get that motherf*cker.”
Despite several charges, including one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, Sullivan was released conditionally without bail by a Utah federal judge on January 15th. Others were not. More on him later.
So here we have a Trump-hater infiltrating the event, and yet the mainstream media wants you to believe this is nothing less than an “insurrection” and “coup” by white supremacist domestic terrorists instigated by the President. Groups you’ve likely never heard of before that Trump has supposedly been riling up “for more than a decade.”
What transpired is not Trump’s fault. Just like the supposed deaths attributed (and misattributed) to COVID-19 are not Trump’s fault either. Using Trump as a scapegoat and getting stuck in blame-mode is a one-dimensional tactic that negates the hundreds of shades of grey.
Trump is not the one who divided America. The Deep State and mainstream media that have spread an orgy of lies for four years, calling Trump a racist, anti-Semite, Hitler, etc. are the ones that have divided America. The banks of London, the controllers, the Davos billionaires behind the “Great Reset.”
So why is the Ministry of Truth rewriting history in real time, reducing January 6th to a “deadly insurrection?” To usher in stricter surveillances and a police state? To falsely call patriots deplorables and “domestic terrorists”? To banish all those on the Right? To further divide and conquer the nation? To justify turning the capital into a Baghdad war zone?
The truth is, there still exists a huge cloud over that day as we process the details and continue to investigate. Were both patriots and left-wing insurgents involved, influenced by mob manipulation and a bystander effect? If you trust the FBI, here is a current list of those who are implicated with the Capitol fiasco.
Let’s retrace the day.
Bulletproof Trump & Barbed Wire on The Horizon
I woke up at around 5:30 a.m. to attend Trump’s speech in the Ellipse. I was already bereft of sleep due to a masked red-eye flight, but that didn’t stop me. I wanted to take part in history and listen to the President in person not only to get a vibe, but to feel the energy of the crowd. I recently missed seeing him at a Miami rally prior to the election.
When we got to the front of the line, “Stop the Steal” organizer, Ali Alexander, gave Google Whistleblower Zach Vorhies 2 VIP passes, since Zach was speaking later that day. Zach, however, returned to our hotel room so he could practice his speech. I took the passes and joined friends.
After watching Trump almost every day for the past year, I found myself standing four rows from his bulletproof podium. Alex Jones, Owen Shroyer, and Ricky Rebel were among the crowd who waited more than three hours in the freezing cold, listening to a lineup of conservative personalities, including Donald Trump Jr.
Trump, who was supposed to speak at 11:00 a.m., finally took to the stage, an hour after the fact.
“… I just, again, I want to thank you. It’s just a great honor to have this kind of crowd and to be before you and hundreds of thousands of American patriots who are committed to the honesty of our elections and the integrity of our glorious republic,” Trump said.
During the speech, President Trump also called Pence out:
“Mike Pence, I hope you’re going to stand up for the good of our Constitution and for the good of our country. And if you’re not, I’m going to be very disappointed in you. I’m going to tell you right now. I’m not hearing good stories.”
Trump added, “I hope Mike has the courage to do what he has to do, and I hope he doesn’t listen to the RINOs and the stupid people that he’s listening to.”
Thirty minutes into Trump’s talk, I decided to walk back a mile to my hotel so I could warm up and head back to the Freedom Plaza for 2:00 p.m. to listen to talks by warriors such as Zach Vorhies and Dr. Carrie Madej, and to livestream for Robert Scott Bell. I found RSB on YouTube broadcasting the President’s speech, and continued listening to him through earphones. As I left the VIP section, I moved through the super-spreader event (read: sarcasm). I was moved by the sea of patriots that extended from the Ellipse to the President’s Park just south of the White House all the way to the Washington Monument building. The positive energy was palpable.
Marxist Tactics — Stir Up & ConQuer
“… I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,” Trump said during his speech.
I was so grateful to have gotten so close. When I scanned his energy, I did not get an evil swamp vibe. I did not. I have spoken to people who have hugged this man and cried. You can feel evil. With this said, he is an actor playing himself. Trump was very arguably a successful operation levels too many to mention here.
A stream of people were already heading down Constitution Avenue toward the Capitol before Trump had even finished speaking.
Although I had no idea at the time; it was around 12:45 p.m. that a suspicious package, later revealed as a pipe bomb, was reportedly found at the Republican Committee headquarters, just south of the Capitol. I was just returning to the Moxy Hotel on K Street.
The first wave of ‘protestors’ arrived at 12:40 p.m. At around 12:57 p.m. several people were caught jumping a fence at 1st Street behind the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial. A minute later, a crowd broke through a fence near the Peace Monument. At 1:01 p.m., the first police line broke on the west side of the Capitol. The President finished his speech at the Ellipse in the President’s Park at 1:12 p.m. It was around 1:50 p.m. that the Capitol was breached. You can check out this The Epoch Times timeline.
By the time I got to the Freedom Plaza at 2:20 p.m., I learned that people had “stormed the Capitol.” What did that mean? When I asked a MAGA hat wearer, I was told Pence was a traitor. This confused me further since I was listening to the live session on my phone as I walked, and Pence hadn’t yet spoken. The move to the Capitol was seemingly prompted by a 2.5-page letter Pence sent to lawmakers around 12:53 p.m., stating that he planned to certify the election of Biden — therefore rejecting the alternate slate of electors in contested states. Remember people were seen heading that way prior to this letter.
“It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not,” Pence claimed.
It would only be after the storming at around 3:00 p.m. that Mike Pence officially certified Joe Biden’s election “victory,” signing off on the results — 306 electoral votes for Biden and 232 for President Donald Trump.
Sarmo, who was also headed to the Capitol to suss out what was happening, spotted a makeshift gallows set up with a noose erected near the Capitol Reflecting Pool. By whom?
“The gallows was the first thing that made me say ‘what the hell is going on?’ It seemed staged.”
Meanwhile, I spotted a fleet of cops on Pennsylvania Avenue whizzing past me with sirens headed to the Capitol. Some guy yelled “don’t let them through. Don’t let them through,” which I found odd.
Days later, I would see footage of several police officers actually waving people in with almost feigned resistance. Who gave them the order to open the doors and let people just walk in? I also saw footage of people dressing in Trump gear from their Antifa uniforms of black.
I say, the only way to storm the Capitol is if someone lets you storm the Capitol.
“Do police officers opening doors fit the narrative of a violent insurrection?” wonders Cat McGuire, a New York City activist who attended the January 6th event. “The media should be broadcasting footage to document that many people were practically ‘invited in.’” Why?
Michael Yon, an author, a former member of U.S. Special Forces who was at the Capitol protests himself, said that the areas near the Capitol had no real security that day.
“ It was like a straight shot, like Atlanta airport, with lights telling you where to land,” Yon said. “It was a clear shot to the Capitol. Where was the security on a day like this? It was unbelievable.”
Yon said that lack of security also looked like an “invitation” to proceed to storm the Capitol.
“They had taken down the barriers, which were nothing. They were like the snow fence—you know, the plastic ones that you can unfurl—so those were nothing. I mean, literally, a child can take them down,” he said.
He believes the storming of the Capitol was influenced by some typical crowd-control methods. Evidence uncovered so far, including weapons and tactics seen on surveillance video, suggests a level of planning that has led investigators to believe the attack was not just a protest that spiraled out of control.
By the following day, barricades were apparently placed around the Capitol. By January 16th, it looked like a prison complex. Drones, military choppers, 30,000 soldiers, shoot-to-kill orders, barbed wire fences, and armored vehicles. What a festive time. All this for a virtual inauguration that could have arguably been pre-taped and is illegitimate? They claimed they didn’t want optics for the President, but one week later, the Capitol looked like a Baghdad war zone? What was the real reason why Mayor Muriel Bowser didn’t add enforcements on January 6th?
According to Colorado Congressman Jason Crow, acting Secretary of Defense, Christopher Miller, approved the deployment of 340 D.C. National Guard personnel in non-tactical gear for traffic control. The Department of Defense’s several offerings of National Guard resources were refused. Apparently, they were preparing for “a gathering similar in size” to that which occurred on December 12th, which was supposedly a few thousand.
Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund was concerned about the size of the pro-Trump crowds expected to stream into Washington in protest. To be on the safe side, Sund asked that the D.C. National Guard be placed on standby in case he needed quick backup.
The National Pulse reported that “Sund recalled a conference call with Pentagon officials and officials from the D.C. government. He said on the call: ‘I am making an urgent, urgent immediate request for National Guard assistance… I have got to get boots on the ground.’”
The police rejected several offers of help, while Sund, who resigned effective Jan.16th, says House and Senate security officials rejected or slow-walked multiple requests to call in the National Guard.
Pentagon officials said the National Guard wasn’t suited for an immediate deployment and couldn’t be engaged in law enforcement actions.
