Media Hysteria And The Insurrection That Wasn’t
Media Hysteria And The Insurrection That Wasn’t
In the worst case yet of media hysteria, the Media Industrial Complex accused President Donald Trump of inciting an insurrection, when about 100 cretins breached the Capitol. Five deaths were attributed to this violent action. I owe Donald Trump a huge mea culpa. Listening to the media hysteria, I laid part of the blame on President Trump when I wrote a post last week. The Capitol breach is far more complicated than it originally looked.
With 20/20 hindsight, this situation needs far more scrutiny than what we saw on our screens. It used to be said that the unblinking eye of the camera told the truth. So not true. The camera only gives you a sliver of the truth.
As the Democrat leaders became more frenzied in their calls for Trump to resign or Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and threatened a second Impeachment Trial, it made me question the sequence of events. There are times when a situation is just too convenient.
Trump was late to his talk at the Save America rally. Because Trump is Trump, he fed off of the crowd He began speaking just after noon and spoke for about one hour and 15 minutes. Nowhere in his rally talk did Trump incite violence. I have watched the speech twice now and read the transcript. From the last part of the Trump speech:
Donald Trump: (01:12:43)
So we’re going to, we’re going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, I love Pennsylvania Avenue, and we’re going to the Capitol and we’re going to try and give… The Democrats are hopeless. They’re never voting for anything, not even one vote. But we’re going to try and give our Republicans, the weak ones, because the strong ones don’t need any of our help, we’re going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country.
Donald Trump: (01:13:19)
So let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. I want to thank you all. God bless you and God bless America. Thank you all for being here, this is incredible. Thank you very much. Thank you.
If you care to watch the speech again, here it is in full:
And, the crowd begins shuffling their way to Capitol Hill. The distance from the Ellipse to Capitol Hill is about 1.6 miles or about 35 minutes. Except, I walked with a Trump rally crowd on December 11. Because everyone was talking and taking pictures and there were people with walkers and canes, it took longer than it should have.
Think about all of the Trump rallies you have seen. Those are happy, law-abiding people. If Trump had told them to breach the Capitol, they would have said, “Are you nuts?” But, the media hates us. They really don’t care about stopping Donald Trump. It is those of us on the Trump Train who must learn our places. We are here to serve our betters. We need to shut up and do as we are told.
The rally participants are walking to the Capitol, but the breach has already begun. According to USA Today, law enforcement began contact with protesters at ten minutes after 1.00 P.m. Eastern Time. Notice Trump was still talking.
Ashli Babbitt, one of the protesters, was a fervent Qanon type who embraced “the storm”:
She wanted to march on Washington DC alongside other Trump supporters, and posted excitedly that a “storm” was about to arrive.
Among those who support the conspiracy, the protest was said to have indicated that “The Storm” was imminent, which they believed was the day Mr Trump would overcome the so-called “deep state”.
Miss Babbitt was killed early on in the melee. I have watched the video 15 to 20 times and it makes me ask more and more questions. The black gloved shooter on the other side of the door, Miss Babbitt at the front of a group. After she is shot, the police coming up the stairs tell the unseen shooter to back up. I know how chaotic the moment must have been, but it smells big time.
And, Nancy Pelosi’s son in law, Michiel Voss, a journalist, film producer, and lawyer was there “covering the event” and stopped to take a selfie with another Qanon-type. You remember the guy in the horns and face paint. From Twitter:
And take a look at this guy next to him. It's Michiel Vos. His mother in law is Pelosi pic.twitter.com/MVkbZDVt5a

Yes, it’s all so weird. Squish Republicans can’t wait to throw Trump overboard to save their own careers. As our guest blogger wrote, there is the feel of a script to this. So many questions. No answers. Olympic leaps to conclusions.
Trump didn’t encourage violence and I beg his forgiveness and yours. I let the media hysteria get the better of me. The whole point of this pointless, deadly mise en scene was to blame Trump.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared the incursion equivalent to Kristallnacht. Clearly he did not study the history of the Third Reich when a young lad in Austria. Kristallnacht was a direct by the SA on the Jews and everything Jewish. Perhaps he meant the burning of the Reichstag “widely believed to have been contrived by the newly formed Nazi government itself to turn public opinion against its opponents and to assume emergency powers”?
Further after the fire: ‘”Hitler urged President Paul von Hindenburg to issue an emergency decree to suspend civil liberties and pursue a ruthless confrontation” with the Communist Party of Germany. After the decree was issued, the government instituted mass arrests of communists, including all of the Communist Party’s parliamentary delegates. With their bitter rival communists gone and their seats empty, the Nazi Party went from having a plurality to a majority, thus enabling Hitler to consolidate his power.’
There seems little doubt that the Democrats will endeavour to cement their power by distorting the events at and concerning the riot and go after anyone they can tie to it with the same fervour shown by AH as he killed off his rivals. Lies, lies and more lies will be the Democrat order of the day. Smirking Pelosi, shown on local TV news last night, was in her unctuous element. What a horrible person she is, so sincere in her insincerity.

Some of them are now pushing for the 14th Amendment to be used to kick the Republicans out of the House. Curiouser and curiouser.
It is obvious that the USA has just suffered a Coup, and now the plotters are coming for all Opposition.
I suggest the following:
1.Duck Duck Go search engine.
2. Proton Email.
3 Overseas VPN not connected to NSA.
4.Move over to Gab and Parler and Rumble.
5. Start making sure you have back-up hiding site for any legal weapons you have, they will be coming for them soon enough.
6.Start leaning Ham Radio again, just in case.
7. Buy nothing off Amazon or Google or Microsoft.Make them pay for their deceit.Sell all their stock.
8.Primary any Republican Politician that did not stand up to vote fraud.
9.Start learning Linux.
10.Start thinking like the French Resistance did in WW2, because these will people come for you i can assure you.You have Democrats,Deep State, Judiciary,Media,Big Tech and Education system wanting to destroy you
100% support efforts to clean up your Voter Rolls and help people track down all the Fraud voters. If you take their fraud voters off them, they will be wiped from the electoral map.
If need be, a National Strike is the only way to force them to stop.
<emBuy nothing off Amazon or Google or Microsoft.Make them pay for their deceit.
Or, buy lots. Then return it.
It is those of us on the Trump Train who must learn our places.
Well, there’s loads of us not on the “Trump Train” that they desire to tread into the dirt, as well.
I let the media hysteria get the better of me.
It was “obvious” what was going on and plenty of people were overwhelmed by the initial reporting.
We are living in the age of the Ministry of Truth. But it’s more of a priesthood than an actual gov’t program. The cardinals of Progressivism preach the truth of the day and the priests repeat it in mainstream and social media.
Also, don’t forget there are videos of Capital police letting in the so called “rioters”. You can even hear the folks being let in questioning whether or not it was a trap.
Also, Pelosi’s office was previously “occupied” by AOC and climate change protestors, so it should not have been viewed as new or shocking.
I tried looking up pictures of the “damage” inside the Capitol and there’s surprisingly little. USA today has a montage and if you look closely there are several photos from different angles of the same broken window and a couple of pushed over tables/lectern-thingys. No smashed or defaced statues, no “ransacking”. But who needs truth when you have the Narrative?
Oh hey now. Did you forget about the Speaker’s podium? Someone lifted that – at least as far as the cameras in the rotunda.
“Did you forget about the Speaker’s podium? Someone lifted that”
Well, I guess he was just taking a political stand, so to speak.
I’ll be here all week, folks!
If there is one thing you always have to remember, it is to read or watch things that purport to contradict your view of what happened.
There is another thing – whether it is contradictory or supporting, look at it with a critical eye, and verify it.
This is no exception.
This video shows people trying to enter the Capitol Building, against opposition from people (reasonably assumed to be officers, either DC Metro or Capitol Police). That is a truth.
What it also shows is that mace was being sprayed from inside. Reasonable. It also shows batons being wielded from inside. It shows what appears to be an officer down (there is a typical arm patch, although not completely identifiable). It shows him on his face, pointed OUT of the building entrance – which says he was struck from BEHIND. Ah. Who was behind him that might have struck him? Only other officers. Slightly later, as the batons were still being frantically wielded, it shows a protestor standing over the fallen officer, holding up his crutch as a makeshift SHIELD over the officer.
Doesn’t look at all like the claim that this was a beating BY the PROTESTORS, does it?
Then look at the source of the video. You have to go to the Twitter account of Hull, where he attributes it to one Ron Filipkowski. Hmm. Look up that name, and his posts elsewhere. Ah. This person is a rabid TRUMP HATER from Florida. Registered as a Republican, true – but that is meaningless in this day and age. What is he doing in DC, among the protestors, when he wants nothing more than to demonize and destroy Trump? No, he’s not a “journalist” either official or citizen – he’s a lawyer that had a political appointment to a judicial selection committee (which he resigned from when one of the CoViD panic scammers in his State was raided). There is also one INDIVIDUAL voice that comes clearly in the video – one that had to be very close to the camera, and most likely Filipkowski himself. That voice utters one phrase – “Get that son of a b**** out of there!” That was undeniably an incitement to further violence – but by WHOM?
I appreciate the mea culpa. I walked away from a lot of the platforms I get right of center views from because they were so quick to assume the media portrayal was the truth. It lead me to question a) why do I need you, I get this from my left of center media. and b) where did all the years of “beware the media gas lightings!” write ups go in this moment? It was frankly shocking to see people I thought knew better, I KNOW knew better based upon past writing, buy into this.
