He had a board member of gatekeepers on. The guy resigned shortly before Jan 6. Said he'd been on the board of directors for 10+ years and smelled a setup. Rhodes introduced him to a black guy named "Wit"...claiming he was the new VP. No one had ever heard of this guy before and no one had voted for him. said this guy who is suspect #10 was advocating they go to war.

You would think someone in Stewar Rhodes' position would be a little more careful, wouldn't you?

There used to be a KKK-Nazi type living here in Tulsa, Dennis Mahon, who became locally famous after the OKC bombing in the mid 90's. He published a newspaper, "White Aryan Resistance" (WAR). He came to one of our Libertarian meetings once. We were polite to him, and let him speak his mind. (I think he was a little surprised we didn't throw him out on his ass.) Anyway, he mentioned going to a meeting with other leaders in his movement - and realized that everyone but him was an agent or an informant.

He wasn't always so careful. A couple years later he moved to Arizona, and was arrested with his twin brother for trying to blow up the office of a local civil rights attorney. He said they were set up, and I have no reason to doubt it.

The guy on AJ said Stuart wasn't the same the past year or so after his wife divorced him and took everything. Said Stuart was all but homeless and seemed on a downhill spiral. He thinks Stuart was set up by the 'Wit" character.

I've heard his wife, or ex-wife, didn't have too many good things to say about him. Does anyone know just who this "Wit" guy is? Is there a photo of him somewhere?

Just as an aside, I think most of Dennis Mahon's problems stemmed from his alcoholism. He was in my jail a few times, and usually spent some time in the drunk tank before we could book him in. If Rhodes was hitting the bottle it could explain his lack of judgment.

Oathkeeper Joshua James has pleaded guilty to seditious conspiracy. The story is from the Washington Post, which isn't very sympathetic to us or the Oathkeepers.

Quote
A member of the far-right Oath Keepers extremist group has become the first to admit to engaging in seditious conspiracy on Jan. 6, 2021, to keep President Biden from taking office.

Joshua James, 34, of Arab, Ala., pleaded guilty in federal court in Washington on Wednesday to helping lead a group that prosecutors say sent two tactically equipped teams into the Capitol and organized a cache of weapons in a hotel just outside the city. He also pleaded guilty to one count of obstructing an official proceeding, and he may face the stiffest sentence of any Jan. 6 defendant so far, according to preliminary sentencing guidelines.

As part of his plea, James agreed to cooperate with federal investigators, including testifying in front of a grand jury.

James, an Army veteran who was injured fighting in Iraq, was indicted on the sedition charge in January along with 10 others, including Oath Keepers founder and leader Stewart Rhodes. James faced multiple felony counts of obstructing the formal count of the electoral college, as well as assaulting a D.C. police officer during his time inside the Capitol. He was also accused of tampering with documents to destroy his communications with other Oath Keepers. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss the charges other than the seditious conspiracy and obstruction counts. Both charges carry a maximum 20-year prison term. No defendant has yet been sentenced to a maximum term.

James appeared in court virtually from Alabama; he was released on GPS monitoring in April over government objections. U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta said the sentencing guidelines for both the sedition and the obstruction charge were calculated to a range of 87 to 108 months in prison. The range is advisory, and both sides can ask for the judge to go above or below the range at sentencing.

The longest sentence any Jan. 6 defendant has received so far is 63 months for Robert S. Palmer, who admitted to hurling a fire extinguisher, a plank and a long pole at officers.

Five other Oath Keepers, apart from the 11 charged with seditious conspiracy, have already pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with the government. But James is the first to plead to sedition, a rarely used and politically significant crime of conspiring against the U.S. government.

James did not make any statements in court other than to answer the judge’s questions. No sentencing date was set, which Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy Edwards Jr. said was done to enable James to provide his cooperation before the hearing.

The plea marks the first successful use of a sedition charge by federal prosecutors in decades. Federal law defines seditious conspiracy as two or more people who “conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States,” or act “by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States.”

James’s defense attorneys, Chris Leibig and Joni Robin, said in a statement that he pleaded not to the first part of the law but only the second part, “preventing, hindering or delaying, by force, a federal law.” ...

It looks like Joshua James punked out by pleading guilty. He is a political prisoner. What he did was protesting. He did nothing compared to the rioters who burned and looted cities and Biden's minions who committed election fraud stealing the election.

Remember our goal is not another revolution nor the violent over throw of the government. Our goal is to hold the government to the US Constitution.

Federal judge blasts double standards in J6 sentences.

Quote
A federal judge blasted U.S. prosecutors seeking excessive sentences for some nonviolent participants in the Capitol riot, pointing to the treatment of BLM rioters as an example of a clear double standard.

“I know that the government believes that the January 6th cases are sui generis [one of a kind] and therefore can’t be compared to other cases. But I don’t agree,” said U.S. District Judge Trevor N. McFadden.

“It does feel like the government has had two standards here, and I can’t abide by that,” he added, noting that before January 6, he couldn’t remember an instance where a nonviolent, first-time offender was “sentenced to serious jail time … regardless of their race, gender or political affiliation.”

McFadden expressed his views during the sentencing of a defendant who pleaded guilty to misdemeanor trespassing. The Biden administration called for her to be sentenced to 75 days in jail and one year of probation, which McFadden believed to be excessive. “The government’s sentencing recommendation here is just so disproportionate to other sentences for people who have engaged in similar conduct,” he said.

Instead, McFadden sentenced her to two months probation and a $5,000 fine. McFadden noted the same U.S. prosecutor’s office that recommended jail time for the J6 defendant sought a much lighter sentence for a Code Pink activist with a lengthy criminal record who infiltrated Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearings in September 2018.

McFadden also noted that last fall, government prosecutors treated pro-Trump rioters more harshly than violent BLM rioters in Washington, D.C. back in 2020, after the death of George Floyd.


The Biden administration’s excessive targeting of J6 defendants has had dire consequences. One defendant, Matthew Perna — who merely walked through the Capitol building for a few minutes yet was facing more than four years of jail time from Biden administration prosecutors — ultimately committed suicide before being sentenced.

J6 defendants have also been detained by the government without indictment, which is a violation of their constitutional rights.

Finally! One defendant has beaten the charges against him!

Quote
New Mexico man becomes the first January 6 defendant to be acquitted. Matthew Martin—who faced four federal charges as a result of entering the U.S. Capitol building during the January 6 protests and riots—has been found not guilty on all counts.

The feds had charged Martin with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; disorderly conduct which impedes the conduct of government business; disruptive conduct in the Capitol buildings; and pandering, demonstrating, or picketing in Capitol buildings.

Martin contended that Capitol police had let him into the building, leading him to think it was OK to enter. "According to MARTIN, Capitol guards opened the doors to the Rotunda and let them in, though MARTIN did acknowledge seeing smashed glass," stated the government's complaint against him.

This seems reasonable—and Judge Trevor McFadden of the U.S. District Court for the District of Washington agreed. McFadden called Martin's defense "plausible" and noted that "people were streaming by and the officers made no attempt to stop the people."


The judge said that while he did not believe that an officer had actually waved Martin into the Rotunda as Martin claimed, video of the scene shows how Martin may have gotten that impression. "I do think the defendant reasonably believed the officers allowed him into the Capitol," opined the judge.

After a two-day bench trial, McFadden acquitted Martin of all charges.

While it was a "close call" on the charge of knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building without lawful authority, "under our system of justice close calls go to the defendant," said McFadden.

The decision is bad news for the feds' cases against the many other January 6 defendants charged with illegally entering the U.S. Capitol. But it's good news for due process and justice.

Certainly not all people who entered the Capitol building that day are blameless. But neither were all of them necessarily acting with criminal intent, and McFadden's decision reinforces this.

[/quote]Proud Boys indicted on sedition charges. Four members of the Proud Boys and the group's former chair, Enrique Tarrio, have been charged with seditious conspiracy for their role in the January 6 riots last year. "The men had already been charged in an earlier indictment filed in March with conspiring to obstruct the certification of the 2020 presidential election," notes The New York Times.

Quote
The new indictment marked the second time a far-right group has been charged with seditious conspiracy in connection with the Jan. 6 attack. In January, Stewart Rhodes, the leader and founder of the far-right Oath Keepers militia, was arrested and charged along with 10 others with the same crime.

The charge of seditious conspiracy — which can be difficult to prove and carries particular legal weight as well as political overtones — requires prosecutors to show that at least two people agreed to use force to overthrow government authority or delay the execution of a U.S. law. It carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

It was not immediately clear what evidence led to the new charges, but the indictment underscored the central role played by the Proud Boys in the effort to forestall President Donald J. Trump's defeat and "oppose the lawful transfer of presidential power by force" by storming the Capitol.


The charges come as Congress is preparing for the first public hearing on the events of January 6. "Several major networks and cable news programs are expected to carry the first hearing live in its prime-time slot," notes the Associated Press. "The committee is also expected to live-stream it on C-SPAN and on its YouTube page."[/quote]

Will tonight's congressional hearing on Jan. 6 be a bombshell, or a dud? The House Committee are promising lost of new information about the riot, but I have serious doubts. It's been a year and a half, it's hard to believe anything new is going to come out of it.

What is new, of course, is the (mostly) Democratic committee is going to milk it for every political point they can make. And if they manage to get the news organizations to focus on something other than inflation, the economy, and Biden's ineptness, even for a day, then I suppose they will have succeeded.

Will we actually learn anything new? I seriously doubt it. But we'll see.

The ratings are in for the Jan. 6 Committee hearings. To make a long story short, they were abysmal.

The hearings had about 11 million viewers. By contrast, Joe Biden's "State of the Union" address got 38 million, and Trump SOTU got 45 million.

Quote
...Bottom line? This didn’t work out as the Democrats had hoped. Most people aren’t interested in seeing a political show. They blame Biden and the Democrats for the failures that are happening now. They know that Democrats are throwing this out as their last gasp before the midterms. They know by comparison the Democrats ignored and even mocked President Donald Trump when rioters were outside the White House in 2020....

How many people are watching the Jan. 6 Committee hearings?

I don't know exactly, but NBC ended its coverage of the hearing to televise golf. Since there's more credible information at the US Open, it actually makes sense.

Patriots do not watch NBC or any major news media. It's slanted deceptive liberal leftist propaganda.

NBC isn't much more than a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party, so it's a little useful to hear what they're latest talking points are. If you're looking for real news, you'll have to look elsewhere.

The Jan. 6 hearings don't seem to be having the desired effect. More Americans would vote for trump over Biden.

Quote
...The survey of 1,541 U.S. adults, which was conducted from June 10-13, found that if another presidential election were held today, more registered voters say they would cast ballots for Donald Trump (44%) than for Biden (42%) — even though the House Jan. 6 committee has spent the last week linking Trump to what it called a “seditious conspiracy” to overturn the 2020 election and laying the groundwork for possible criminal prosecution.

Since Biden took office, no previous Yahoo News/YouGov poll has shown him trailing Trump (though Biden’s most recent leads have been within the margin of error, like this one is for Trump). One year ago, Biden led Trump by 9 percentage points. In 2020, Biden won the White House by more than 7 million votes.

Yet Biden’s job approval rating has been atrophying for much of the last year, and the new survey shows that it has never been weaker. A full 56% of Americans now disapprove of the president’s performance — the highest share to date — while just 39% approve. Three weeks ago, those numbers were 53% and 42%, respectively....

The 42% of people surveyed who said they would vote for Biden, the senile, Chi-Com Agent, child molester who is trying to cause economic collapse are total idiots.

Why a January 6th commission when it started on January 5th? by Trevor Zantos

*Warning, I’m not an expert, not claiming to be one just asking questions! *

There are many unanswered questions about the events surrounding January 6th, 2020, and the riot in the Capital. A few brave reporters are asking very good questions about what the government knew and when it knew it as well as the unequal prosecutorial pressure and conditions (Julie Kelly, Lee Smith, and Daren Beattie stand out). However, while they have asked about the “bomber” and why the FBI hasn’t seemingly tried quite as hard to find them vs the 70yr old Grandma that’s charging crime is trespassing, they have not asked about the “IED”. This is evidence that the Federal government has in hand and can answer all these questions, it also occurred at approx 8:00 PM EST on Jan 5th, 2020 so it really should be the focal point as it is the first event in the sequence.

Based on the FBI’s own data, statements, and photos there are many questions that need to be answered and can be all with materials on hand. My PERSONAL theory is that the “IEDs” were not live devices and were not intended to go off, they were intended to further draw resources and attention at the precise time the group was planning on gaining entry to the Capital. According to the former US Capitol Police Chief’s testimony, they accomplished it perfectly. as I will show below. My best guess is that the person that dropped the devices was just a cutout, who built the fakes? Who paid for the operation? Were any of these individuals known to the federal government through undercover officers, and informants whether directly or indirectly? As always, the language used by the Government is very important, every press release and interview I have seen refers to the devices as “viable” not “live”. According to the FBI, the device was 1”x8” which has a volume of less than 103cc, it was filled with homemade black powder. Regular black powder is 1/3 as powerful as smokeless powder. Both are widely available across the US with no need for ID and limited tracking ability. The home-made black powder would have a much more unique signature and potentially even less explosive potential. Why would the bomber/people behind it do that? Finally, even if they were live, they were packed with one of the least powerful explosives and the 60min egg timers would have had them going off the evening of January 5th. Had it gone off it would have probably done little physical damage but would have canceled Trump’s rally and probably most of the events. I’m just some aspiring writer, hopefully, writers with an audience will see these questions and start getting answers because I believe they will reveal much more than people imagine.

Questions for FBI/DOJ/ATF/White House

Were the devices live when they were neutralized?
Was there a secondary activation device besides the 60 min mechanical egg timer? If not, did the timer malfunction? Were there any differences between the two devices?
Have both the FBI explosives lab and the ATF explosives lab had full access to all the data?
What parts of the chemical signature of the homemade black powder distinguish it from commercial off-the-shelf powder (COTS)? What is the powder’s Relative Effectiveness Factor compared to factory back powder (scale used to compare explosive’s potential energy vs TNT)? Does the government have any previous incidents that match this black powder compound? What would the damage be had the devices gone off?
Who did the US Capital Police get the call from at 12:52 pm regarding the device by the RNC headquarters? If it was a law enforcement agency that called, who tipped them? Who exactly located the second device? Were they operating on any tips?
Has the FBI reviewed video from the two IED placement sites to discover how the devices weren’t discovered until 1/6?

Questions/observations as far as intentions/desired reaction by the bomber/bombers.

Why would the individual use homemade black powder? It seems logical that factory black powder would probably contain more potential energy. Even then, smokeless powder is roughly 3 times more powerful than black powder. All these powders generally are sold in a minimum of 1lb jugs and are not regulated and widely available across the US and are not super unique. There are different types but it’s not as easy to track a specific lot of powder and where it was sold etc. The device is described as a 1”x8” pipe, according to math that means the maximum volume would be 103ccs or about 100 grams. Without knowing the exact composition of the black powder it’s hard to know exactly how large the grains are vs density but working on those rough numbers it would be equivalent to .055kg TNT=.1KG black powder (assuming the homemade powder was as effective as a commercial black powder but that is highly doubtful.
If the 60min timer was the only activation device, why didn’t the devices go off the night of Jan 5th? Why would the individual/individuals set it to go off the night of Jan 5th, there were some limited gatherings, but had they gone off the logical outcome is the activities of 1/6, like the president’s speech, would have been severely affected if not canceled outright.
What if the devices weren’t designed to explode? The former US Capitol Police Chief Sund testified the following to Congress excerpts from Pg 5-6: “We were monitoring the actions and demeanor of the crowd, which at the time did not raise any concerns when we received word at 12:52 p.m. that a pipe bomb had been located at the Republican National Committee Headquarters, immediately adjacent to Capitol Grounds. We responded immediately to coordinate and send resources to the scene, including a number of officers, officials, and a bomb squad. We also dispatched resources to look for other explosive devices, suspects, and vehicles.”

He continues: “Meanwhile, at approximately 1:50 p.m., USCP resources dispatched to look for other possible explosives located another pipe bomb at the Democratic National Committee headquarters, as well as a vehicle with explosives and a weapon, all within close proximity of the Capitol Grounds. As a result of these explosive devices, extensive USCP resources were dispatched to the scenes, and two congressional office buildings had to be evacuated. I believe all of this was part of a coordinated plan related to the attack on the Capitol.”

Would it be reasonable to postulate that this diversion of vital resources and mind power could have been the exact desired outcome? According to Elijah Shaffer’s detailed timeline the breach of the Capital, it started at 1 pm EST, right as resources are being directed towards the suspicious devices. The first entry of the capital is at 1:15 PM. Near the height of the chaos inside the Capital, authorities are made aware of the 2nd device at 1:52 PM and must send additional resources there. Another interesting question is raised in a recent interview with Kash Patel, Chief of Staff for the Secretary of Defense, he remarked the South part of the capital was left completely undefended, why was that?

Chief Sund stated, “I believe all of this was part of a coordinated plan related to the attack on the Capitol“. So, who coordinated this attack? The Proud Boys? Antifa? The 3 Percenters? If the placing of devices was coordinated with the activities the next day, then obviously that would be further proof that President Trump didn’t incite violence during his speech. It appears irrefutable that the FBI and possibly other agencies knew beforehand through confidential informants/undercover agents that the specific individuals planned to agitate an assault, were there any communications known by Federal/State/Local law enforcement that the IEDs were part of the plan?

Addendum: Without knowing the exact composition of the black powder it’s hard to know exactly how much potential explosive energy the device contained, but the REF of 100g of factory black power =.055kg TNT black powder (assuming the homemade powder was as effective as a commercial black powder but highly doubtful).

Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes Wants to Give Jan. 6 Testimony Live
Rhodes believes Jan. 6 Committee could misrepresent comments if he submits to taped deposition.

By Infowars.com Friday, July 08, 2022

Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes says he’ll testify before the Jan. 6 House Select Committee – but only if his testimony can be made in public.

On Friday, Rhodes’ lawyer said his client, who’s currently in federal custody on seditious conspiracy charges, would offer testimony if he could give it live in-person, instead of from jail.

“He’s willing to waive his Fifth Amendment rights, he wants to testify in public, and he wants to testify live,” Rhodes’ attorney James Lee Bright stated Friday.

“I don’t think they’ll go along with that,” he added.

Bright argued Rhodes does not want to submit a videotaped deposition, “saying he doesn’t trust the panel to air Rhodes’ remarks in full,” reports Politico.

Besides, Rhodes has already been deposed by the committee, and invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination several times.

Rhodes’ offer comes as the committee is set to meet again next Tuesday where they will focus on alleged Proud Boy and Oath Keeper involvement in the events of Jan. 6.
Look sharp by wearing exclusive gear found only at our store.

According to Politico, Bright doesn’t anticipate the committee will take Rhodes up on his offer, since they have thus far not honored other requests to give live testimony.

If they did acquiesce to the request, it could cause a shake-up unlike anything seen in the previous kangaroo court processions. Bloomberg notes:

The nine-member panel has been able to make its presentations mostly with scripted narratives, limited questioning of mostly cooperative witnesses, and edited video of previous closed-door testimony.

Rhodes is currently awaiting a Sept. 26 trial and is being held in solitary confinement at a detention center in Oklahoma, from which he last testified to the committee in February.

Report: Arrest of Donald Trump Will Be The Democrats’ October Surprise Ahead of Midterms
July 9th 2022
https://www.infowars.com/posts/repo...crats-october-surprise-ahead-of-midterms

"The Democrats are planning to arrest former President Donald J. Trump in a desperate bid to turn the tide ahead of their imminent midterm election defeat, according to reports.
Investigative reporter Julie Kelly from American Greatness joined author Lee Smith on EpochTV.com on Friday to discuss the Democrats’ plan for an “October Surprise” to advance their “insurrection” narrative and pivot from Joe Biden’s spate of epic domestic and foreign policy disasters."

If they do this… it will make a martyr of him, making the November red wave into a red super nova. It would also put Ron Desantis an even better possition come ‘24. It would bring out conservatives and moderates that don’t vote like nothing seen before, and would convince the few moderates left in the party of slavery, secession, the klan, Jim Crow laws, lynching and segregation that their party has gone too far. They will either switch sides or stay home out of disgust.

Leaked Docs: FBI Infiltrated Proud Boys On Jan 6, Group Did Not Plan ‘Insurrection’
'The Proud Boys were not involved in, nor did they inspire the breaking of the barriers at the Capitol building,' mole stated.


By Kelen McBreen | INFOWARS.COM Monday, July 11, 2022

The Gateway Pundit obtained documents and text messages from a whistleblower showing the FBI allegedly had a mole inside the Kansas City Proud Boys group on January 6th.

Joe Hoft of the Gateway Pundit joined Steve Bannon’s War Room on Monday to further detail the explosive leaked documents.

The information published Monday reveals the supposed informant told FBI handlers the Proud Boys did not participate in or inspire the breaking of the barriers at the US Capitol.

The undercover FBI confidential source also said the group only intended to act as security for Trump supporters and to help them “get back to their hotels safely” amid rumors of Antifa planning violence on Jan. 6.

Despite texts showing the agency’s informant confirmed nobody in the group engaged in or planned to be violent, members of the Kansas City Proud Boys as well as others he was associated with are facing decades in jail.

According to the leaked FBI report documenting the confidential source’s January 6th discussion with his handlers, the mole stated, “The Proud Boys were not involved in, nor did they inspire the breaking of the barriers at the Capitol building.”
Get back in the game, jump on our major sale at the store now!

He also described the crowd as acting in an unorganized, “herd mentality.”

Regarding the group entering the capitol, the source claimed they were trying to stop violence between protesters and police.

“The KC Proud Boys (KCPB) in attendance at the rally entered the Capitol building 30 minutes after the building was breached to help deescalate Trump supporters and law enforcement,” the testimonial explained.

The Proud Boys allegedly “told people to stop acting like anarchists and leave” before beginning to pick up garbage after trash cans were thrown at law enforcement by those who stormed the building.

The FBI source added, “No one from KCPB were involved with the battery of a law enforcement officer, nor did anyone damage property in the capital building. KCPB then went back to a rental house and adhered to the curfew in place.”

The statement was provided to the FBI on the evening of January 6th and that same day, the informant was also said to be communicating with them via text message.

One leaked screenshot shows the source telling the FBI, “PB did not do it, nor inspire.”

According to The Gateway Pundit, the agency’s mole provided videos and photos captured during the Capitol debacle which were used in court and resulted in individuals being raided by the FBI and arrested.

The whistleblower documents add to the proof that American patriots are being unjustly held as political prisoners of the Biden administration.

In any REAL hearings, such (exculpatory) accounts would be presented to undermine and destroy the false narratives. Truly a stalinesque show trial.

First Capitol rioter to stand trial gets seven years - the longest sentence yet: Texas far-right militia member 'egged crowd on' and warned his kids not to turn him in to FBI because 'traitors get shot'


Guy Reffitt, 49, a member of the far-right group the Three Percenters got 7.25 years behind bars and ordered to pay $2000 in restitution
He was convicted in March on five felony counts, including bringing a gun onto the Capitol grounds
During the sentencing he called himself an 'idiot' and said he was done with extremist groups
He was recorded on video outside the Capitol during the January 6 riot and later threatened his wife and children if they turned him in
His son, Jackson Reffitt, said he was in contact with the FBI after the DC riot on January 6
The son testified in court that that his father told him 'If you turn me in, you're a traitor and traitor's get shot'
Under federal sentencing guidelines, Reffitt Sr. faces up to 11 years at his sentencing on Monday
Federal prosecutors are asking for 15 years behind bars for his crimes

By Reuters and Janon Fisher For Dailymail.Com

Published: 16:06 EDT, 1 August 2022 | Updated: 08:25 EDT, 2 August 2022


A member of the far-right Three Percenters militia was sentenced to more than seven years in prison for his role in the January 6 riot at the Capitol Building - the longest sentence yet for any of the insurrectionists.

Guy Reffitt, 49, of Wylie, Texas, was convicted by a jury in March of five felony charges, including bringing a gun onto the Capitol grounds and obstructing an official proceeding.

He had threatened to harm his own children if they ratted him out to the FBI.

'He said, 'If you turn me in, you're a traitor,'' his 19-year-old son, Jackson Reffitt told jurors. ''And traitors get shot.'

Federal guidelines recommend a prison sentence of 9 to 11.25 years for those crimes, prosecutors say.

Reffitt never entered the Capitol, but video evidence showed him egging on the crowd and leading other rioters up a set of stairs outside the building.

He was heard on his GoPo camera recording saying he planned to drag House Speaker Nancy Pelosi out by her feet 'with her head hitting every step on the way down,' according to a copy of the recording submitted at trial.

Reffitt lost his swagger at the hours-long sentencing where the feds sought 15 years for his crimes.

He decided to address the court, reversing his previous decision, though he said that his anxiety over public speaking was 'crushing him,' according to NBC News.

'I don't want anything to do with any groups or militias or any stupid sh*t like that,' he said. 'I do deeply regret everything.'

Reffitt was brought to tears at trial as his son told the jury about how his father threatened him if he dared to call the FBI. The elder Reffitt wiped away tears as his son Jackson testified that he felt 'gross' when he googled 'FBI tip' in order to report his father.

Later, Jackson Reffitt told The New York Times that he felt bad for turning his father in, but he doesn't regret it.

'I would say I'm sorry, because I don't feel like I put him in this situation, but I still feel guilty. I would do it again,' Jackson told the paper.

Judge Dabney Freidrich doubted Reffitt's conversion.

'I can't help but wonder, whether like many other Jan. 6 defendants, [if] I'm hearing what I'd like to hear from you as opposed to what you really believe,' the judge said.

'I clearly f**ked up,' he replied.

Even after his arrest, he wrote a letter on behalf of other incarcerated rioters.

'I hope that was the only day in American history we would without doubt feel the need to notify our government they have transgressed much too far,' he said.

Freidrich said that the claims in his letter 'border on the delusional.'

'He hasn't walked back his statements about being a martyr,' she said. 'He hasn't walked back his statements about being a patriot. And so, as here he sits, I have to consider: what is this man going to do when he's released from prison?'

Still, his family stuck by his side after turning him in.

The insurrectionist's wife Nicole Reffitt said that she didn't think her husband would act on his statements, but said that the family was 'disturbed' by the comments.

His family set up a crowdfunding page on GiveSendGo asking for donations for his defense.

'Guy stood on the stairs of our Capitol that day not to cause terror, but to stand up to the corruption and evil that has eroded our government. You, the American people, have supported the Reffitts through some of the darkest days this family has endured, and I am now asking for a rally,' Nicole Reffitt wrote.

After the sentencing, Nicole Reffitt defended her husband, calling him a 'patriot' and saying the trial was 'political,' according to CBS reporter Rob Legare.

His daughters Peyton and Sara, defended their dad, after the sentencing, blaming former President Donald Trump.

'Trump deserves life in prison if my father's in prison for this long,' Sara Reffitt said.

The Texas dad was the first Capitol rioter to go to trial in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

He was caught on camera with a Smith & Wesson pistol in a hip holster. He also carried zip-tie handcuffs

To date, federal prosecutors have prevailed and won convictions in all but one of 13 trials tied to the Capitol attack.

Federal prosecutors had asked U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich to sentence Reffitt to 15 years, more than the U.S. sentencing guidelines recommend, citing Reffitt's crime as being 'calculated to influence or affect the conduct of government by intimidation or coercion.'

But on Monday, as the sentencing stretched into its fifth hour, the judge rejected the federal prosecutors' arguments.

'There are a lot of cases where defendants possessed weapons or committed very violent assaults,' Politico reported the judge saying. Friedrich noted that the harshest sentences so far have been for little more than five years.

'The government is asking for a sentence that is three times as long as any other defendant and the defendant did not assault an officer,' according to Politico's coverage.

Reffitt's attorney has sought to portray him as man who felt marginalized and down on his luck after losing his job in 2019.

Depressed and suicidal, his attorney said he turned to political news on social media and became a fervent believer in former President Donald Trump.

His daughter Peyton told the court in a letter she could see how her father's ego and personality 'fell to his knees when President Trump spoke.'

'You could tell he listened to Trump's words as if he was really truly speaking to him ... Constantly feeding polarizing racial thought.'

His attorney F. Clinton Broden said that while his client broke the law, his actions were not as egregious as those of others who entered the Capitol and assaulted police.

He noted that Reffitt will get credit for the 19 months he has already spent behind bars since his arrest, and has asked the judge to impose a sentence of no more than two years.

There is more information in this article of Guy Reffitt's sentencing here:
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...es-11-years-prison-children-turn-in.html

The fedcoats identified Mr. Reffit by posting videos of the protest here
"FBI Washington Field Office Releases New Videos of Suspects in Violent Assaults on Federal Officers at U.S. Capitol, Seeks Public’s Help in Identifying Them"
https://www.fbi.gov/contact-us/fiel...-publics-help-in-identifying-them-070621

The Feds always run video cameras at right wing protests to identify patriots to persecute them. Militiamen who are fit for combat should never go to protests.

Mr. Reffitt made a mistake carrying a handgun to a protest in the anti-gun District of Criminals. If he had to carry a handgun he should have worn a concealment holster not an outside the waist band belt holster.

Mr. Reffitt with his handgun at the protest.

I would never open carry in public because many career criminals when they are not pumping iron in prison practice disarming techniques on each other. Many career criminals when they get out are looking for someone open carrying so they can knock them out and steal their handgun.

Mr. Reffitt should not have worn a running Go Pro video and audio camera that recorded evidence against him.

Mr. Reffitt and the other D.C. protesters are political prisoners who committed no crimes and caused no damage. They should not have been arrested, locked up in the gulags, and held without bail.

The so-called protesters that should be arrested are the Antifa and BLM criminals who burnt down police cars, burnt businesses to the ground, blinded police with lasers, and threw improvised explosives at police while the corrupt Demorats in the major cites allowed the left wing arson and assaults to continue to further their goal of disrupting the presidential election and install Obama's senile puppet Biden through massive election fraud.

The Real Story of January 6,” a documentary by The Epoch Times
https://www.theepochtimes.com/the-real-story-of-jan-6-documentary_4596670.html?utm_source=Morningbrief&utm_campaign=mb-2022-07-27&utm_medium=email&est=FkkUWr6H%2BNaVD0Q9cvV6IZbEhEKTr7o%2F7ileEBnfPnnGKwgp93hTukb9250uBf31ybt4cZFb

The Real Story of January 6,” a documentary by The Epoch Times, reveals the truth that has been hidden from the American people. While a narrative has been set that what took place that day was an insurrection, key events and witnesses have been ignored until now. The documentary takes an unvarnished look at police use of force and the deaths that resulted in some measure from it. The film asks tough questions about who was responsible for the chaos that day. With compelling interviews and exclusive video footage, the documentary tells the real story of January 6. The film is narrated by Joshua Philipp, host of “Crossroads” on EpochTV and a senior investigative reporter at The Epoch Times.

Jasper Fakkert, editor-in-chief of The Epoch Times, said: “There has been a narrative perpetuated about January 6 that omits many of the facts about what
happened that day.

“With in-depth interviews and exclusive video footage, we take an objective look at the issues, the people, and the impacts of the events.”

The film takes a close look at the shooting of 35-year-old Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt and the deaths of three other supporters of former President Donald J. Trump. It analyzes the police response to the massive crowds and use of force around the U.S. Capitol.

It examines the human impacts of Jan. 6, including the suicide of one defendant and the long pretrial imprisonment of dozens of others. It also investigates claims that some attacks on the Capitol and police were carried out by unindicted suspicious actors.

What Really Happened on January 6? | The Real Story of January 6

While the dust from Jan. 6, 2021, has long cleared, it has been replaced by a smoke screen. A carefully crafted narrative has been set that claims the events of that day amounted to a “violent insurrection.” This claim, however, does not match the facts. “The Real Story of January 6” takes an objective look at what happened through the eyes of those who were there. The Epoch Times provides the first comprehensive look into what really happened that day. The Truth can’t be hidden.

We are Being Censored. Help Spread This Documentary

While this documentary is groundbreaking in providing a complete overview of what happened on January 6, The Epoch Times has been censored and suppressed by Big Tech. In order to spread the documentary, The Epoch Times relies on its own Epoch TV as well as other non-cancelable platforms to spread the truth. Stand up for free speech and oppose censorship by sharing the documentary with as many people as you can.

Jan 6 Political Prisoner Says Ray Epps Recruited Him to Storm Capitol
https://www.infowars.com/posts/jan-6-political-prisoner-says-ray-epps-recruited-him-to-storm-capitol
August 4th 2022, 1:28 pm

'He put his hand on my shoulder and said to me, 'You have a bullhorn! You have a loud voice to get the word out!'' says Sean McHugh.

A man imprisoned for entering the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, penned a letter from jail fingering Ray Epps as the person who recruited him to tell others to storm the federal building that day.

Writing from his cell in a Washington DC jail, Sean Michael McHugh says Epps told him to use his bullhorn in order to “get the word out” to other protesters about coordinating a siege on the Capitol building that day, according to a letter obtained by The Gateway Pundit.

Epps was caught on film encouraging a siege on the Capitol, and has even been suspected of being an FBI operative, informant, provocateur, or asset, by many including various US lawmakers.

A man imprisoned for entering the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, penned a letter from jail fingering Ray Epps as the person who recruited him to tell others to storm the federal building that day.

Despite footage showing Epps inciting crowds to enter the Capitol, he has not been arrested or charged for his involvement that day, the FBI has refused to answer whether he works for them or not, and the New York Times https://www.infowars.com/posts/new-...-ray-epps-as-victim-of-conspiracy-theory even wrote a puff piece defending him as a sweetheart.

In his letter, the father of four from California also calls out inhumane conditions inside the prison where he’s being held, and claims Capitol Police officers that day were attacking otherwise peaceful protesters without provocation.

Read McHugh’s letter singling out Epps below, with emphasis from The Gateway Pundit:

My fellow patriots,

I’m a January 6th political prisoner being held in the DC-Gulag. My name is Sean McHugh. I’m being held in very inhumane conditions in the DOJ’s effort to try and make me plead guilty under duress. I believe they are trying to do this because I had direct contact as seen on video with Ray Epps, an individual who has been reported by multiple media sources to possibly have FBI connections and involvement for incitement. At the very least he appears to be a government cutout protected by a lawyer who was formally known as an employee of the FBI. In fact, the FBI has covered for him by scrubbing his name from the most wanted list for January 6th after real journalism exposed his identity.

I encountered Ray Epps, the real de facto leader of January 6th 2021, multiple times while in D.C. I had coincidental contact with Ray Epps throughout the day and people who appeared to be working in concert with Ray Epps. Other than Capitol Police attacking peaceful protesters without provocation or warning, Ray Epps was more responsible for the for initiating the events that happened at the Capitol than anyone else. He is seen on video January 5th encouraging other patriots to go inside the Capitol which is the very inception of the whole idea to actually go inside. However, he is still not indicted or spent one day in jail. I’m actually the one labeled as the de facto leader of January 6th by the government and Chief Judge Howell of the DC Circuit.

Here is a brief account of the morning of January 6th 2021. Some details are left out as I still face trial.

On the morning of January 6th my mother, friend, and I were walking down Constitution Avenue toward Ellipse Park. I was talking into my megaphone something about Joe Biden when I was waived down by who I now know as Ray Epps. We walked over to Ray Epps and associates who were wearing military colors. He was yelling, “We are marching over to the Capitol at 1:00pm whether Trump is done speaking or not and we are going inside.”

When we were close to Ray Epps he put his hand on my shoulder and said to me, “You have a bullhorn! You have a loud voice to get the word out!” Trying to place responsibility on me Ray Epps said, “You need to tell people the plans. At 1:00pm we are going inside the Capitol whether Trump is done speaking or not.” Ray Epps said, “We are leaving from here and we will walk that way to the Capitol and through the front door.” That was near the corner of what I believe is Constitution Avenue and Ellipse Park.

We continued on with our day at the Trump rally and as Trump was speaking, sure enough, a crowd was on its way down Constitution Avenue towards our nation’s Capitol Building. This was the beginning of a peaceful protest, or so I thought. At the Capitol Ray Epps was whispering in Ryan Samsel’s ear egging him on to take down the barricade as seen on video. I can tell you Ray Epps was inciting the crowd all day. Ray Epps was yelling to the crowd “Push forward” on the West Terrace. I heard Ray Epps on multiple occasions saying “We are going inside”, even after peaceful protesters were met with police force on the West Terrace.

Not once did my mother, my friend, or I pass the police line or continue into the Capitol Building that day. However I was attacked multiple times with rubber bullets and sprayed repeatedly directly in the face with various chemicals for speaking on my megaphone. My mother was also sprayed with multiple different chemicals in her face and shot with rubber bullets and pepper balls in her head for no reason. Capitol police were aiming for faces leaving multiple people’s faces riddled with holes bleeding profusely.

My friend was hit in the head with a concussion grenade and it went off severely injuring him and cracking one of his teeth without warning or any provocation. It was clear they wanted to severely injure people without any announced reason or any apparent provocation. I watched as Capitol Police beat unarmed women with batons. I watched a very petite woman pushed over by Capitol police onto a sharp leg of a barricade that was on its side purposely and unwarranted. They wanted to hurt the vulnerable and elderly. Everyone was asking “Why are you doing this?” They were out for blood!

I remember walking back into the crowd to find my mother and hearing Ray Epps yelling “keep going, push forward” and still pushing the idea that we were “going inside”. He even said, “We knew this would happen, this is why we showed up.” He was pushing the same metal sign in the same way that the DOJ has used to charge me with felony assault. (We were trying to push it upright, not to harm anyone.) Never did I expect the events to unfold as they did that day. Yet cool, calm, and collected Ray Epps was still there directing others to “remember the plan”. The plan that he and his corrupt cronies had in place on a very specific timeline, seemingly in order to stop the truth from coming out on the house floor as representatives started to contest the election. Imagine if our representatives had time to present the evidence in a constitutional debate on the house floor in front of millions on national television. I knew something was off. It was an ominous feeling I know shared by many patriots that day.

I decided to leave early on, well before any breach in the police line actually occurred. Little did I know that the Capitol police were already waiving people inside the building on the east side.

Now I am facing decades in prison. I’m up against the full weight of the DOJ, the DC-Gulag, a very bias court circuit and the mainstream media lies with nothing but a court appointed lawyer who seems to be working against me.

I wish to put Ray Epps on the stand to answer the tough questions. Why is Ray Epps not in jail for inciting the crowd or obstruction of congress or seditious conspiracy? Where is equal application of the law? Who was he there with? What were his motives and who does he work for? Why did he keep repeating that we need to go inside not only a day before January 6th but even after being met with police force outside the Capitol?

Why am I being treated harshly and Ray Epps is free to go when he was clearly more involved in the events of January 6th? God bless America. Pray for justice pray for truth.

Thank you for supporting my family and I during these hard times.

Knew it: Jan. 6 defense attorney says nearly two dozen federal ‘assets’ were embedded in Capitol during riot

Wednesday, August 17, 2022
https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-08...assets-embedded-capitol-during-riot.html

A defense attorney for members of the Oath Keepers organization who have been charged with seditious conspiracy in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021 false flag at the U.S. Capitol Building says that scores of federal “assets” were present in the building that day.

David W. Fischer, attorney for Thomas E. Caldwell of Berryville, Va., filed a motion with U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta in Washington, D.C., seeking to dismiss the conspiracy and obstruction charges against 10 members of the group, The Epoch Times reported.

While Caldwell is listed in the indictment, he is not a member of the Oath Keepers, the outlet reported in March.

“At least 20 FBI and ATF assets were embedded around the Capitol on J6,” says a footnote on page 6 of the 41-page motion, though no other details were provided.

The Epoch Times added:

In addition to the information about law-enforcement assets on the ground at the Capitol, the footnote says, the Oath Keepers “were being monitored and recorded prior to J6.”

An examination of evidence turned over in discovery by prosecutors in two major Oath Keepers cases has “not found one iota of proof” that defendants “had any plan, intention, design, or scheme to specifically enter the Capitol Building on J6,” the motion says.

Fischer told The Epoch Times he couldn’t comment on the motion or provide more details on the footnote.

There have been reports for months that federal agents were replete in the crowds that descended on the Capitol Building, with many suggesting that it was a straight-up false flag attack with one objective: Blaming it all on then-President Donald Trump so as to permanently tarnish him in the eyes of Americans.

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Jan. 11, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) pressed top FBI officials about the allegations.

“How many FBI agents or confidential informants actively participated in the events of Jan. 6?” Cruz asked Jill Sanborn, executive assistant director of the FBI’s National Security Branch.

“Sir, I’m sure you can appreciate that I can’t go into the specifics of sources and methods,” Sanborn responded.

Cruz replied, “Did any FBI agents or confidential informants actively participate in the events of Jan. 6, yes or no?”

“Sir, I can’t answer that,” Sanborn replied.

“Did any FBI agents or confidential informants commit crimes of violence on Jan. 6?” Cruz pressed.

“I can’t answer that, sir,” Sanborn said.

Jeremy M. Brown, an Oath Keepers member from Florida who is not part of either major Oath Keepers conspiracy case but has nonetheless been charged with two counts related to Jan. 6, told The Epoch Times that the FBI attempted to recruit him in December 2020 as a plant and spy. He refused; he was summarily arrested by a swarm of FBI agents in September 2021, months after the incident.

“When asked by me and my girlfriend to produce the warrants at the time of arrest, they refused to produce them,” Brown told the outlet. “One agent was even recorded stating, ‘We don’t know what we are looking for yet.’ They should look for a copy of the Constitution and read it.”

A noted expert has said he saw trained cadres suggesting federal agitators moving toward the U.S. Capitol ahead of the riot on Jan. 6.

J. Michael Waller, who was at the Capitol that day, wrote about what he saw in a piece for The Federalist a week after the breach:

Plainclothes militants. Militant, aggressive men in Donald Trump and MAGA gear at a front police line at the base of the temporary presidential inaugural platform;
Agents-provocateurs. Scattered groups of men exhorting the marchers to gather closely and tightly toward the center of the outside of the Capitol building and prevent them from leaving;
Fake Trump protesters. A few young men wearing Trump or MAGA hats backwards and who did not fit in with the rest of the crowd in terms of their actions and demeanor, whom I presumed to be Antifa or other leftist agitators; and
Disciplined, uniformed column of attackers. A column of organized, disciplined men, wearing similar but not identical camouflage uniforms and black gear, some with helmets and GoPro cameras or wearing subdued Punisher skull patches.

The Democrat deep state is moving to criminalize its political opponents. We’ve seen this before, and we know how it ends.

I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you! wink

The FBI has been doing stuff like this since at least the '60's. There's no way the FBI can be reformed, the corruption is too deep and embedded. It should be disbanded, and the sooner the better.

Onward and upward,
