New January 6 Stories That Complicate the Media Narrative

The Associated Press reported in August that Robert Reeder, a Maryland man, pleaded guilty to “parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.” He argued for leniency because, “he is a registered Democrat who wasn’t a supporter of former President Donald Trump.” So why did he join the incursion into the Capitol building? Because, he says, he was an “accidental tourist” with nothing better to do.

But an online group that calls itself Sedition Hunters recently tweeted a picture it says shows that same “accidental tourist” attacking a police officer. Curiously, the “accidental tourist,” who didn’t support Donald Trump, happened to be wearing a red “MAGA”-style hat. His attorney argued in court, “Mr. Reeder is not politically active, is not and has never been a member of any right-wing or anti-government or extremist group and has, unfortunately, been publicly grouped with many others (whose) views he abhors.”

The story reminds one of John Sullivan, a Black Lives Matter activist who infiltrated the January 6 incursion to encourage violence, bully police officers, and generally stoke mayhem. While many of the trespassers remain locked up without bail, Sullivan mysteriously received pre-trial release.

 

But there’s more. As I’ve written before, the January 6 event has a statistically anomalous count of suicide victims among police officers. Additionally, one officer’s widow has now sued two men she says inflicted a grievous head injury on her husband, possibly leading to his suicide. Her complaint claims, 

Open-source intelligence materials found at https://seditionhunters.org/insider-1107/ appear to depict Defendant [Taylor F.] Taranto throughout the Capitol Insurrection engaged in other unlawful acts. In addition, and upon information and belief, said website appears to show Defendant Taranto with the weapon used to assault Officer Smith. Upon information and belief, the weapon appears to be the Ka-Bar TDI ‘self-defense’ cane.

The complaint further alleges, “Co-Defendant Taranto handed a cane or crowbar (or similar object) to Kaufman. Kaufman, in turn, violently swung the cane and struck Officer Smith in the face/head.” :snip:

Death threats leveled at Justice for J6 rally organizers

“Despite all of this entirely peaceful operation by us, I'm being bombarded with death threats and threats of violence. So, all the violence happening here is exclusively coming from the Left, all the threats of real violence that we're seeing here,” Braynard told Secrets in an interview.

His group is at the center of protests to critical race theory teachings in schools, the FBI’s hunting down of Jan. 6 protesters and state voter reform efforts.

The Sept. 18 "Justice For J6" rally at the base of the U.S. Capitol is expected to attract hundreds to watch videos and hear speakers, including some lawmakers. Braynard has stressed those coming to act peacefully and stick to the message of aiding the Jan. 6 protesters.

Capitol Fence Going Up Again Before Rally for Jailed January 6 Protesters

Police are reportedly planning to reinstall the fence that surrounded the U.S. Capitol for months after the January 6 protest in response to a rally on September 18 demanding “justice” for jailed Capitol protesters. 

According to the Associated Press, which cited an anonymous source, a security plan “is being finalized” to put fencing outside the inner perimeter of the Capitol building and the Supreme Court. :snip:

Justice Department’s Foremost Felony Charge May Be on Thin Ice

More than eight months after the worst attack on Washington since the Civil War, as Joe Biden describes it, not a single American has been charged with sedition or treason related to the alleged “insurrection” on January 6, 2021.

As Ben Boychuk explained in his Thursday essay, despite many harsh warnings insisting  the government would build sedition cases, so far Biden’s Justice Department has failed to live up to its promise.

That’s not to say, of course, that the abusive “Capitol breach” probe hasn’t been a big success for those seeking revenge against Americans who protested Joe Biden’s election. The lives of at least 600 Americans have been destroyed—families torn apart, finances bankrupted, reputations forever tarnished, and dozens held in prison, denied bail, and awaiting trials that won’t begin until next year. 

 

But the Justice Department’s premier felony charge—obstruction of an official proceeding—is on shaky legal ground, to say the least. It’s a substitute for the sedition cases they cannot prove in court.

Prosecutors have slapped the felony count, which is punishable by up to 20 years in jail, against at least 200 defendants, including mostly misdemeanor cases, in an attempt to turn Trump-supporting trespassers into convicted felons. :snip:

Mehta: Very different than destroying documents, tampering with a witness.
DOJ: They were trying to intimidate Congress. LOL.
Mehta asks if someone came in to interrupt court hearing, could they be charged with 1512c2?
DOJ: Yes.

The judge then raised different scenarios, including attempts to disrupt a congressional hearing or his own federal courtroom, and asked Nestler if the charge would apply. “What if someone stands up in a Senate confirmation hearing and says, ‘stop this proceeding.’ Is that a 20-year felony?” Mehta asked Nestler. He replied no. The difference, Nestler argued, is that the Capitol protesters attempted to “scare” Congress on January 6. Mehta noted that “scaring” Congress wasn’t part of the group’s indictment.

Then Nestler told the judge there are “no limitations” to what the obstruction statute could cover—which means Joe Biden’s Justice Department will continue to intentionally misinterpret the law and prosecute citizens for political activity that runs afoul of the regime. Americans could face a felony offense for engaging in behavior that, until 2021, was considered a Constitutionally-protected right under the First Amendment.

“Making a fool of yourself in Congress is what America is all about,” argued Carmen Hernandez, legal counsel for another Oath Keeper. Both Fischer and Hernandez noted that the law has never been applied to a demonstration in Congress. Hernandez raised the 2018 protests in Congress against Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh as an example of similar behavior. 

“Yes, but they weren’t charged with obstruction of an official proceeding,” Mehta shot back.

Exactly.

 

 

IF memory serves many Were Arrested...released maybe a small fine. Point being none of these people who Were Actually violating the law, were held without bail for 9 Months.  We can discuss the law if people want, That is not my point. That point being we have seen disruptions like this for decades, none of them were treated like the January 6 "Insurrectionists".

Republicans/Conservatives have had the Fascist card played on them since May 0f 1945. The question is IMO Who is acting like a real Fascist Government?

Judge refuses 'QAnon Shaman's' request for temporary prison release

A federal judge this week denied a request from the Capitol riot defendant known as the “QAnon Shaman” to be temporarily released from custody to visit his sick grandfather before he died Thursday. 

Albert Watkins, the attorney for 34-year-old Jacob Chansley, said in a press release Friday that he had first filed a motion in July for his client to be “released after seven months of solitary confinement to see his ailing maternal grandfather,” who Watkins referred to as “the only adult male constant in Mr. Chansley’s life,” for “one last time before he died.”:snip:

Federal Judge: Capitol Hill Rioters' Charges Might Be Unconstitutional

:snip:

A federal judge on Wednesday questioned whether the obstruction of an official proceeding charge that has been levied against at least 235 defendants in Capitol riot cases is unconstitutionally vague. 

During a lengthy hearing Wednesday for the conspiracy case involving 18 members of the far-right extremist group Oath Keepers, U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta for the District of Columbia asked about the determinations prosecutors used to file a felony charge of “obstructing an official proceeding” of Congress. 

“Essentially, what you said is, ‘Trust us,’?” Mehta said, according to The Washington Post.

“And that is a real problem when it comes to criminal statutes, to suggest, ‘We know it when we see it, and we’ll pick and choose when it is an appropriate exercise of prosecutorial discretion.’?”

Defense attorneys, including David W. Fischer, who is representing co-defendant Thomas Edward Caldwell, have argued that the felony charge was not being properly applied to the case, claiming that the congressional certification of Electoral College votes did not meet the definition of an “official proceeding.” 

The felony charge, which has been brought against Capitol riot defendants in addition to other misdemeanor offenses, carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

[…]

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Moss also expressed questions on the charge in a separate hearing last month, noting that the government must present a clear differentiation between obstructing an official proceeding and lesser charges that carry maximum punishments of six months in prison. :snip:

America had a long proud history of peaceful transfers of power. Trump terrorists ended that record.

1. I had said the March On The Capital was a bad idea. Events have shown me to be correct.

2. "Trump terrorists"?

Eight Months After January 6, Prosecutors Make Aggressive Maneuvers As Defendant Attempts Suicide, Another Beaten In Jail

Some sixty people are still behind bars eight months after the January 6 disturbance at the U.S. Capitol. A Daily Wire review of court records shows unusually aggressive prosecutorial maneuvers, which sometimes brought rebukes by judges.

For example, Jose Padilla has been detained since February. “Padilla is 40 years old and has lived in Tennessee for most of his life. He previously served in the U.S. Army during the Iraq War. After he returned home, he was diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (‘PTSD’) and began receiving disability benefits. Prior to his arrest, he was a stay-at-home dad who managed his family’s household affairs and cared for his three sons during the day while his wife worked as a librarian. He has no criminal history or history of substance abuse. He also has no known ties to extremist groups,” Judge John D. Bates summarized.:snip:

They have very little else. They were counting on making some fake news headlines with their 'insurrection' commission -  but real news by their incompetent  leader has gotten in the way and no one is even paying attention to it.

Eight Months After January 6, Prosecutors Make Aggressive Maneuvers As Defendant Attempts Suicide, Another Beaten In Jail

Some sixty people are still behind bars eight months after the January 6 disturbance at the U.S. Capitol. A Daily Wire review of court records shows unusually aggressive prosecutorial maneuvers, which sometimes brought rebukes by judges.

For example, Jose Padilla has been detained since February. “Padilla is 40 years old and has lived in Tennessee for most of his life. He previously served in the U.S. Army during the Iraq War.

He has no criminal history or history of substance abuse. He also has no known ties to extremist groups,” Judge John D. Bates summarized.

Prosecutors argued that his being a stay-at-home dad and veteran were reasons to hold him in jail.
