Mainstream corporate media is far more guilty of overthrowing the government than any person who charged into the US Capitol building in January 2021.
Media and Deep State operatives fabricated much of the storyline to deliberately blame President Donald J. Trump and his patriotic supporters with the breach.
Developing reports indicate that none of the 402 people arrested for their involvement in the breech have been charged with sedition, according to the Post Millennial. The most serious charge that has been brought against any defendant is assault. Nothing even close to charges of conspiring to overthrow the government have been brought forward.
The real outrage is the media. From Russian Hoax to the deceitful impeachments, their coverage has been deceptive at best.
Outrage and the threats of charging “insurrectionists” with sedition—the act of attempting to overthrow the government—proving them based upon actual facts and evidence seems to be more unlikely each day.
“Many of the trials for individuals involved in the Capitol riot of January 6th have started and much to the chagrin of liberals everywhere, the charges these folks are facing aren’t quite as serious as we were all led to believe they would be,” wrote Michael Cantrell in America’s Sheriff. “In fact, the Justice Department has now said that the body of evidence in these cases is not as damaging as it was previously thought to be.”
The Post Millenial lays it out: “Others have been charged with conspiracy, and obstruction. While five people lost their lives during the riot, only one was killed with a weapon, and that was Ashli Babbit, who died after being shot by an unnamed Capitol Police Officer.”
This inconvenient fact counters media narrative and Democrats hypocritically. Prosecutors will have a difficult challenge to overcome this truth.
The secrecy surrounding the death investigations of officer Brian Sicknick and Babbit do nothing to sustain confidence in “transparency” or media tales. The other three victims suffered medical emergencies, but all official accounts are lackluster at best. Maybe it will go away and be written off in the media like Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 emails, Jeffery Epstein power over high profile politicians, or Hunter Biden’s “earnings.”
While prosecutors have been toiling to prove some kind of imagined mass conspiracy, “less than 25 people are facing that charge, and ten people are said to have ties to the Oath Keeper militia movement,” the report confirms.
Media elites originally reported Arizona prosecutors who detained Jacob Chansley–the strange tall horned guy in the Capitol–had a lot of strong evidence to support the charge of sedition and/or mass conspiracy. This supposedly included “intent of Capitol rioters was to capture and assassinate elected officials.” However, Cantrell asserts that no proof of this was ever submitted.
Post Millenial reports, “Another man, Ethan Nordean, was accused of sending ‘encrypted communications’ to the Proud Boys, but this, too, was dropped when it turned out that his phone battery died and he was unable to use it. The judge in Nordean’s case said there was a ‘dearth of evidence’ and declined to jail him. Prosecutors are trying again, however.”
A report cited Michael Ferrara, an attorney with Kaplan Hecker & Fink, LLP, and former federal prosecutor, explaining that “if it becomes clear that prosecutors overreached, engaged in hyperbole, or simply misunderstood social media and text messages, it would be no ‘small error.’”
Ferrara also stated that the zeal of the prosecutors could “color the way the judge sees the case going forward,” which could have a huge impact on the outcome for many of the defendants.
Ferrara isn’t the only one concerned. During a hearing in the case against the Oath Keepers, U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta said that remarks made by DOJ officials “threatened to taint the prosecution of individuals accused of taking part in the assault,” as the Washington Examiner reported.
Predictably to most Americans, we know media continues to steer opinion away from reality to the point it’s nearly impossible to ignore their hyperbole, the overzealousness, and the hypocrisy of politicians and prosecutors.
LawOfficer publication said it best: “No matter the outcome of these cases, they stand in even starker contrast to the far less aggressive—practically encouraged—violence and rioting that have taken place in the past year.”
