Biden Wants You to Be Afraid

Most of the leading arguments by Washington leftists are only persuasive if you have already accepted a proposition on which they are based. Many of these assumptions are, unfortunately for them, simply not true.

An example is the suggestion that the greatest domestic threat to our nation comes from right-wing activists. It is possible no political party has made more of an effort to persuade Americans of a false narrative. The Biden Administration wants Americans to believe right-wing extremism is the most dangerous and prevalent domestic threat and that January 6 is part of a broader problem.

Leftists think you will not push back on their attempts to squelch free speech, punish their critics, and use the DOJ to pursue their political enemies if you believe there is an existential threat from conservatives. If you are afraid, in other words, you may not focus on the dumpster fire that is Biden’s America.

The DOJ has established an entirely new department to pursue, investigate, and prosecute “extremists,” which they define as people who question government authority or its policies. Got it? If you question government, take issue with its actions, the Biden Administration thinks you are a potentially violent and dangerous terrorist.

You may recall – assuming you went to high school somewhere that still teaches government or U. S. history – that our nation was founded by people who encouraged dissent. People like Franklin, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison were all about confronting government. They won by mobilizing people, offering better arguments, and fearlessly taking on the powers that be.

Now that kind of attitude is considered dangerous by the same government those men made possible.

To further amplify their hypocrisy, there is no focus in the new DOJ effort to hold accountable organizations like ANTIFA and BLM. Those groups were overwhelmingly behind the 2020 riots that included arson, looting, assaults, and murders. But the DOJ is not focusing on them. Nor has there been even a single congressional hearing about them. Zero.

You can almost hear the panic of the Biden Administration and Congressional leadership as they search for evidence that conservatives are more dangerous than reality has yet shown them to be.

As we have said repeatedly, January 6 was a riot for which the participants should be held accountable. File charges, prove the cases, let the chips fall where they may. For now, it is indefensible to maintain that it was a “deadly event,” implying the MAGA crowd killed people. They did not. The only person killed was a Trump supporter who was shot, without warning, by a police officer. There is no evidence the riot was part of a nationwide pattern of dangerous conservative attacks.

A real terrorist attack did take place recently, in WI. But it was a BLM-inspired leftist who committed it. At least six innocent people were killed, and dozens injured, by an anti-white racist who plowed his car through a parade. If team Biden gave a damn about human lives, or really cared about domestic terrorism, they would be talking about that rather than trying to convince us the bigger threat is from their political opponents.

Why Is It Dangerous
To Ask Questions About January 6?

You’ve heard January 6 was the biggest attack on our democracy since the Civil War. This statement is so ridiculous, by itself, that you don’t need more examples. But you have also heard it was a deadly, armed action, with killings by domestic terrorists. You’ve heard it was an insurrection, seditious, a treasonous act. You’ve heard it was instigated, planned, and coordinated by Trump and his supporters.

The problem is none of that is supported by facts.

When Americans are being accused of committing treason, yet the FBI announces it has found no evidence of that, it should put an end to much of that talk. Check out the extensive discussion about whether January 6 involved treason or sedition, from the Guardian. (The Guardian: Treason or Sedition?)

It is inarguable that January 6 saw a riot. People should be held accountable for violence and any other criminal activities. If a protestor swung a flagpole at a police officer, or shot bear spray at them, they should be punished. No one in authority on either side denies that.

It is unproven, and hyperbolic in the extreme, to suggest it was a deadly insurrection. No one was killed that day by MAGA supporters. The only person shot was an unarmed female U. S. veteran who was killed in cold blood by a Capitol Hill police officer.

If January 6 Was So Bad,
Why Do They Lie About It?

The mainstream media, leftists, socialists, Democratic leaders, and anti-Trumpers – but I repeat myself – have worked 24/7 to convince you the January 6 riot was worse than it was.

Question: if January 6 was the worst attack on our democracy in history, WHY do they have to lie, exaggerate, and claim it was something it was not? No one had to exaggerate the negative aspects of the Civil War, MLK assassination, or 9-11. Those were genuinely terrible events based entirely on a reasonable look at the facts.

Yet, with January 6, there are non-stop articles that exaggerate, mischaracterize, and lie.

The attached article raises just five of the lies and injustices that are involved in reacting to these events. Among them:

  • A federal judge has ordered an investigation into violations of civil rights of people arrested in the riot. Some have even been denied necessary medical care.
  • People are being sentenced to longer terms than even prosecutors requested, for crimes as innocuous as entering the Capitol to take selfies.
  • People have been held in solitary confinement for being in the Capitol, denied bail, and not yet even assigned a trial date.
  • No one has been charged with insurrection, treason, etc. The FBI has said they found no evidence that it was a coordinated, planned, national act of insurrection.
  • The most egregious lie being spread is that the attack was deadly. Well, it was if you were a Trump supporter. The ONLY person killed in the Capitol was Ashli Babbitt, a veteran who was shot, in cold blood, with no warning, by a Capitol Police Officer. She was unarmed and presented no threat to anyone. Yet the officer claimed he saved lives that day.

In addition to Babbitt, a Capitol Police officer died later, after the riot, from a stroke. Others also died from natural causes. But Trump supporters killed no one. They carried no guns. And they did not present a deadly threat. Period.

There isn’t a person in leadership or prominent in the media who has said the January 6 attack was a good thing. None. For the nascent fascists in charge of our nation, however, it is important for you to believe it was something that it was not: a planned, deadly, coordinated effort to overthrow the government carried out by armed domestic terrorists.

It was a mostly impromptu riot, with fights and scuffles, by people who are frustrated by an election they do not believe was legally conducted. The violence they actually carried out was bad enough. No one defends it. But it was not the worst attack on our Democracy in a century. Anyone who claims that is either uninformed or intentionally lying to you. Or both.

If You Aren’t Worried About the DOJ and FBI, You Aren’t Paying Attention

Two-Tiered Law Enforcement is Here

Once respected, the FBI has become a disgrace

At one point most of us trusted the nation’s pre-imminent law enforcement agency to be effective, honorable, and non-partisan. I remember watching the FBI Story, with Jimmy Stewart (he was in the movie, not watching with me). A good flick that holds up well.
No institution has ever been perfect, but Americans in general had confidence in the FBI. Even under the tutelage of a flawed and narcissistic J. Edgar Hoover, the agency was revered. (If people had known Hoover was dressing up in women’s clothes, as widely reported, it might have changed things years ago. Today, of course, it wouldn’t be a big deal. Cross-dressing? Who doesn’t?) The agency that was once thought to be above politics is now a hostage to it.
