For two years now, we have heard about an insurrection that everyone knows was bogus. The media deliberately lied in its vain attempt to ruin President Donald John Trump — one in a series of attempts by the real deniers of election results. Tucker Carlson’s revelation that the Capitol Police incited peaceful protesters has been dismissed by a media obsessed with lying. The key to Pravda — the Soviet version of propaganda — was not to get people to believe it, but to get people to stop following the news. Judging by television ratings in the 21st century, it is working. It indoctrinates Americans to believe they are powerless and that resistance is futile.
The democrats feared Mike Pence would do his Constitutional duty to reject electors from PA, GA, AZ, WI, MI and remand back to respective state legislature to adjudicate the fraud. That could have overturned the 2020 election. The false insurrection with their Ray Epps plants stopped this even tho Pence wasn't going to do what he should have done. An insurance policy as Lisa Page's boyfriend would say
Carlson is a brave man, who unlike the Washington Post shows that Democracy does die in the dark. Thank you great read.
Jan 6th was a CIA/ FBI orchestrated riot used to “discredit” the opposition to their desired outcome. This is what they have perpetrated in countless countries (Ukraine to name one), in order to control outcomes. The certification process to be held that day was the final phase of their “steal operation” bringing the fraudulent election of Joe Biden as President to a close.
They knew they were on the shakiest of ground and were afraid, because they knew that more than half of the country knew full well the election had been riddled with fraud. Making that half of the country appear to be the “enemy”, more-so “terrorists”, was essential to shutting down and shutting up ALL dissent. The subsequent round-up and jailing of citizens, some of whom never even went into the Capitol, even denying them Due Process, was meant to intimidate and terrorize the citizenry into compliance. At the same time, a massive “disinformation- canceling” program was being instituted throughout the MSM and social-media complex, again, orchestrated by the Intelligence Community.
It was a manufactured election and a manufactured “insurrection”. Yes, to crush Trump - most certainly. But much, much more importantly, to crush the very citizens of the country who would dare to defy them. It was a coup.
As Trump most accurately stated, “It’s not me they’re after: it’s you. I’m just in the way.”
There is a lot to take away here, but I am fascinated lately by wording: "present offensive and misleading conclusions about the attack." Notice the word "conclusions." If you watched the episode, you would notice that what Tucker did was not present "a conclusion" but present evidence that undercut previous "conclusions," the "approved" ones. "Conclusions" are only "good" or "bad" based on a single criterion: are they based on evidence? They cannot be offensive or misleading unless you can prove they were not based on evidence, but no one angry at Tucker Carlson tries to prove they weren't (other than saying "cherry picked," which is exactly what I would say of the J6 committee).
What angers me most is that Congressional RINOs have mostly ignored all of the innocent people swept up in the J6 Insurrection fantasy and denied their basic Constitutional rights for purely political reasons.
Great column again, Don. Either the law is the same for everyone or we have become a nation of men, not laws. If the laws do not restrain all lawbreakers then the law is doubly an ass. Any rule that applies to citizens either applies to Congress and its staffers (aren't they citizens?) or it shouldn't be a law. Any circumstance involving citizens and any law enforcement should result in the same results. If money can get someone off for a clear violation, then the regulation, law, or ordinance should be thrown out. The people who make laws must be made to abide by that law, too. No exceptions.
Why is both not an option on the poll, sir?
Today Africa News is the voice of reason and sanity. The mainstream media are complicit in all of the criminal behavior performed by the swamp.
I was very glad to see Tucker take up the case of Jacob Chansley last night. We know him as the Q Anon Shaman, Chewbacca, or as he and his mother prefer, America's Shaman. Evidence was withheld from his lawyer that Tucker showed on Monday night that could have helped his case. The poor man, who is a Navy veteran with mental health issues, was essentially escorted around by the Capitol Police. He did nothing wrong. He was not violent. Like with the other J6 prisoners, this is all political not to mention unconstitutional. It is very, very sad to America function this way where justice is not blind. All of this was planned and calculated with the ultimate goal of getting rid of Trump. I honestly do not know how you, as Americans, can right the ship. But surely this cannot go on.
Important piece, Donald. I would have chosen both in your poll.
"The key to Pravda — the Soviet version of propaganda — was not to get people to believe it, but to get people to stop following the news." Very true.
It infuriates me that Kevin McCarthy released the January 6th videos to Fox News, the network that was all in on the 2020 steal. The carefully curated snippets that Tucker Carlson is allowed to air after going through Murdoch’s legal department are a distraction meant to appease the MAGA base. The Shaman strolling along with a police escort followed by Carlson’s scoldings - what an insult. Where is the footage from every camera angle of Ashli Babbitt being murdered and Rosanne Boyland being beaten and dragged through the corridors? I don’t watch Fox and I don’t need the media to filter through the video for me.
The Speaker and every Republican congressman needs their phone lines melted down until all the footage is released to the public. The leadership of both parties was in on this insurrection scam and they will use every means to hide it from us. I want to see the footage of every politician present and their actions on that day because there lies the truth behind J6.
Watch and listen to Tucker Carlson while you can. He is impressive and the only person I watch. At 86, I may not even see the 2024 election, much less who occupies the POTUS after that, and the mendacity and - yes - incompetence I see from our government is so massively disappointing to me that I prefer to not pay attention to it, rather focus on my QTR (quality time remaining). Orphaned early, having raised myself to upper middle class, earning a PhD in Economics, I know evil when I see it. Hell is coming for those people, one way or another.
Mr. Simon Ateba was removed from the White House correspondent's pool after publishing this, wasn't he.
The thing that confuses me the most is that anyone on the left refuses to acknowledge the truth. They are afraid of it. Look at every leftist news source and all they do is lie. That anyone who watches CNN or The View, to name a couple, is clearly insane--they cannot reason and they belong in anything such as an asylum so they cannot infect the rest of the world. That includes that walrus Whoopi Goldberg, who has had seven abortions and been married ten times. How could anyone listen to what this ugly pig has to say ?? Most of who watch that program are people fairly well off. I rid myself of my TV and haven't watched TV in over 10 years.
And who makes up the rest of these groups ? Your panhandlers. If anyone ever talked to them as I do, you would know that they have no interest in improving their lives and that is why I give them nothing. Besides, they all come from money. If you doubt what I am saying, look at their shoes and yes, they all have cell phones as well.
Tucker's other accomplishment with the J6 footage is to show what side elected politicians are on. Unsurprisingly, a number of Republicans have no interest in the J6 footage and think it was a travesty that it was released to Tucker. Tucker noted that these folks are all on the same team and that they are all liars.
The City-State of Washington, DC, controls the levers of power over the entire USA. And the votes inside DC are controlled by the Highest Bidder. And the Highest Bidder, foreign or domestic, isn't going to tolerate dissent. And remember, the Highest Foreign Bidder, is often using money voted and sent to them by the DC insiders.
It's a Republic and you can't keep it.
