The Central Absurd Inconsistency of the Ray Epps Conundrum Described in Two Sentences

Well, Leftists, which is it?

EITHER the January 6 protests were so wicked that the fiendish scoundrels who participated — all of them (not least the ringleaders) — should be persecuted to the full extent of the law. 

OR ELSE, insofar as we accept that one of the protesters — and a ringleader, at that — is no more than a "poor schmuck" who should be left alone (as the man most visible in urging the masses to march on the capitol was described by one irate Democrat member of the Jan. 6 Committee), then all (or at least the majority) of the other protesters should be left off the hook, exactly like Ray Epps, no more and no less.

As usual, we are presented with the drama queens' usual double standards

But you cannot have it both ways. (We know that you would like to, and we know that the MSM is covering for you here, but the fact remains that you cannot have it both ways…)

• In that perspective, be sure to read The January 6 Protest Summarized in One Single Sentence

The Patriots Beacon points to the central absurd inconsistency of the January 6 committee (emphasis theirs):

As the so-called investigation moves forward each day, more and more pieces of evidence prove that the riot at the Capitol was plotted but they are doing their best to blame the whole thing on Trump and his supporters.

The most iconic rat is Ray Epps whom the agency keeps on protecting from claims that he is a Federal informant, his removal from the most wanted lists, and claiming that this guy is a law-abiding citizen. Really?

But shreds of evidence cannot tamper especially when it’s posted online.

And Tucker Carlson calling out Adam Kinzinger as a liar is just a complete fact.

Indeed, one seething Democrat on the Jan.6 Committee interrupted a GOP colleague and shamed him, claiming that Ray Epps is nothing more than a "poor schmuck" "just trying to survive and he's on your side." Maryland's Jamie Raskin chided the Republicans to: "Leave that guy alone, whoever he is." 

To repeat: Look, no matter what you think about the January 6 protest (or about a participant like Ray Epps, for that matter), one thing should be perfectly clear:

EITHER the January 6 protests were so despicable and destructive of "(our) democracy" that anybody and everybody who participated in them should be thrown into jail and prosecuted (persecuted?) to the full extent of the law. 

OR ELSE the average protester is no more than a "poor schmuck" — as, again, the man most visible in urging the masses to march on the capitol was described by one irate Democrat member of the Jan. 6 Committee — and then all (or at least the majority) of the protesters should be left alone, off the hook, exactly like Ray Epps, no more and no less. (Thanks for the Instalink, Ed…)

UpdateTwitchy's Brett T reports (thanks to Instapundit) that with the final report of the January 6 select committee having "zero mentions of one-time Oath Keeper Ray Epps", this means that “The one person on film telling people to go into the Capitol (multiple times) disappears from FBI list and is not even mentioned in the 845-page final report”. This leads Catturd to tweet the obvious: If they can’t explain Ray Epps, ‘They were in on it.’ with Detective51 saying Right, and adding that 

"if they weren’t they would have made him the poster boy of the whole thing and demanded his head."

Update: On his Substack, lists the "top 12 strange, stand-out moments" of the January 6th Committee's interview with Ray Epps (you’ll never see Kinzinger be so nice to a supposed Trump supporter as he is throughout this interview)…

Speaking of (more or less related) scams, Dick Morris writes:

Don’t Let The Media Con YouThe GOP Did Not Lose The Midterms

One of the biggest media hoaxes is that the Republicans lost the midterm elections…and that it was a sign voters are tiring of Donald Trump.

The Republican candidates for the House got 52,690,787 votes while Democrats only got 48,096,016 votes — almost a 5 million-vote Republican majority.

 … The only defeat we suffered was at the hands of our own expectations.

And none of it was Trump’s fault.

 … The main tactical reason for the Senate defeats was the Democrats’ advantage in early voting combined with their control of Election Day machinery.

In Pennsylvania, for example, Democrats had banked a 300,000-vote advantage in the Senate race before the polls even opened. Such a handicap was almost impossible to overcome, especially with the Democratic secretary of state gladly tolerating machine breakdowns that lengthened lines around the block on Election Day.

 … Our victory in the House has been obscured, likely deliberately, by the absurd delay in vote counting. But 2022 was one of the best years for Republican House candidates ever, so don’t let the media con you into believing it was a defeat.

No, the “greatest threat to democracy” is not MAGA Republicans; the true and actual threat to democracy is the Biden Administration and the Democrat Party

On December 2, writes Paul Reen, Elon Musk

exposed a bombshell of internal communications by 2020 Twitter leadership. E-mail exchanges prove Twitter had actively colluded with the 2020 Biden Presidential Campaign, as well as the Democrat National Committee, to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story in order to help sway the election for Joe Biden. Twitter deliberately suppressed the first Amendment, free speech of both a major American news journal and ordinary citizens to interfere in the presidential election. It’s one of the biggest scandals in America because it not only confirms the political bias of a major social media platform but, more importantly, it exposes the coordinated attacks on U.S. democracy by Biden and the Democrat Party who have used the weight and power of the government to help censure truth-telling , opposition voices. After the Hunter laptop story had been authenticated, surveys have shown that 79% of American voters believe that “truthful” coverage of the Hunter Biden laptop story would have changed the outcome of the 2020 election (NY Post), including 17% of Biden voters who stated that they would NOT have voted for Biden had they known the truth (Media Research Center). Prior to the recent U.S. midterm elections, Biden gave numerous divisive speeches that slandered MAGA Republicans as the “greatest threat to democracy”. It is finally becoming clear that the true and actual threat to democracy is the Biden Administration and the Democrat Party. 

Democracy dies with Censorship 

What was censored? Musk exposed the coordinated censoring of a New York Post’s Oct 2020 article, one month before the Nov 2020 Presidential elections. The New York Post article was damaging to then candidate Joe Biden because it revealed that his son Hunter Biden, through actual emails found on his abandoned laptop, had been involved in nefarious “pay to play” activities while his father was Vice President under Obama. Hunter’s laptop, which has since been authenticated, showed that he was involved in managing access to his father for Ukrainian officials while he received a massive salary from a Ukrainian Energy Company. After conferring with the 2020 Biden Campaign team, Twitter leadership decided to label the Hunter Biden laptop bombshell as “Russian disinformation” and block any and all tweets trying to discuss and share the Hunter Biden laptop story. The biased media and all other social media platforms decided to collectively support this false narrative in order to avoid the “...disaster of 2016” (Trump being elected) per Twitter leadership exchanges exposed by Musk. We have since learned that Hunter had been paid millions of dollars by both Chinese and Russian companies and, allegedly, his father received 10% of the money. 

None of this, of course, is news to Conservatives who have known about this laptop scandal since mid-2020, even before the New York Post article. Conservatives who have tried to speak about the scandal have been censored, shamed and slandered for speaking out- not just by Twitter but by all social media platforms including Facebook, Google and Instagram as well as the Mainstream “News” outlets, and not just in Oct 2020 but throughout 2021 and 2022. The Democrat, left wing control of US society is so strong that it took Elon Musk’s buying of Twitter and exposing the actual communication behind the scenes to finally prove what we already knew. This left wing control consists of the Democrat Party, biased left wing media, Big Tech Social Media, Academia, Hollywood and even much of today’s Corporate America who have bowed to the woke, left wing ideological mob. Together they create a powerful “left-wing cabal” that suppresses right wing opposition voices as extreme and hate-filled. In fact Joe Biden is the one giving hate-filled speeches against ordinary, right wing American citizens smearing them as extremist, election denying threats to Democracy. 

Horrendous as it is, the Twitter collusion with the Biden Administration is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Biden’s efforts to censure opposition and destroy democracy. After he was elected, Biden tried to create something called the “Misinformation Governance Board”, as part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). He hired an openly biased left wing activist to run the department and be responsible for “fact checking” so-called right wing “misinformation”. This was so blatantly partisan akin to totalitarian governments that public outraged ensued, referring to it as the “Ministry of Truth” as in George Orwell’s novel “1984”. All Republicans and even some Democrats called for the group to be immediately disbanded and Biden was forced to in a matter of weeks. 

Biden’s Politicization of the Intelligence Agencies and Department of Justice 

Even more concerning and totalitarian has been the way in which the Biden Administration and the Democrat Party have politicized and weaponized the US Intelligence Agencies and the Department of Justice (DOJ), which oversees the FBI. When the Hunter Biden laptop information was first exposed by the New York Post in Oct 2020, somehow 51 former U.S. “Intelligence” officials, many of which had served under President Obama and were then contributors to leftwing “news” sites like CNN and MSNBC, quickly published a joint response. This response stated that the laptop “had all the earmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign”, even after admitting they had no evidence of this and they had no idea whether the e-mails were genuine or not. They’re just “suspicious” they said. Why? Because they hurt Biden’s campaign, that’s evidence enough. This ambiguous “earmark” statement enabled the entire left-wing cabal to use this letter as cover to slander Republicans as dangerous conspiracy theorists while giving the authors room to say they never actually confirmed it was Russian disinformation. This was the clear politicization of the intelligence community to protect Joe Biden’s campaign right before the election. Since the laptop and its contents have now been authenticated and in no way Russian disinformation, not one of the “intelligence “officers have apologized or been held accountable for their own disinformation. 

Since Biden’s election, his Justice Department has constantly harassed American citizens for having opposing views to the Biden White House narrative. Attorney General Merrick Garland, head of the Justice Department, drafted a widely criticized letter comparing concerned parents to domestic terrorists for simply voicing their concerns at local school board meetings over hyper, left-wing ideologies contaminating their children’s education. Garland instructed FBI agents to monitor these so-called dangerous parents which resulted in undercover FBI agents appearing at school board meetings to intimidate them into silence. But it didn’t work, not surprisingly brave parents continue to speak out to protect their children and are beginning to make a difference. 

After 6 Jan 2021, Biden’s FBI harassed and arrested Americans all over the country, some who had not even entered the Capital Building. Some of those that did enter the Capital in order to take selfies at Pelosi’s desk, have been held in Gulag like prison conditions for nearly 2 years, many in solitary confinement, denied legal representation or even private visits, most still awaiting trial with no bail. Biden has created, for the first time in America, political prisoners. He doesn’t hesitate to send armed FBI agents on surprise, early morning raids on Trump supporter’s homes, culminating of course with the raid on Trumps own Mar-A-Lago estate this past August.

Throughout 2021 Biden’s Justice Department helped strong arm the mandating of COVID vaccinations for all government officials or risk termination, including the military and even first line health care responders. This resulted in tens of thousands of people losing their jobs and benefits. 

After the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs Wade and sent the question of abortion rights back to each state, Biden did nothing to stop left wing thugs from illegally harassing Justices at their own homes. Harassing Supreme Court Justices is illegal per the U.S. Constitution. Justice Bret Kavanaugh, a frequent target of the hate-filled left wing mob, even had an assassination attempt on his life, thwarted by quick acting police. Biden, of course, said nothing to protect the Justices. Biden, rather than trying to unite Americans behind his policies would rather threaten to change the US proven, democratic structures – like stacking the Supreme Court with nearly double the number of Justices to ensure a left-wing activist majority, or to eliminate the Senate filibuster which forces Senators to make compromises and prevents simple majority rule. 

When considering the constant totalitarian behavior of the Biden Administration, it should come as no surprise that Biden is silent and absent when asked to condemn the Chinese Communist Party for their horrific and inhumane COVID lockdown treatment of their own citizens, or to actually do something to support the killing and suppression of the brave Iranian people by their own Islamo- fascist government. Biden’s silence is not unlike the pathetic silence of Obama during the 2009 Iranian Green revolution. 

Republicans retake majority of the House of Representatives 

After winning back the House of Representatives in last month’s midterm elections, Republicans will take control in Jan 2023 and have already announced they will begin investigations immediately on Joe Biden’s role in Hunters corrupt business affairs. Republicans will also start to hold the various Biden Executive Departments accountable for their unconstitutional attacks on free speech of opposing views, their unjustified targeting of concerned parents, their creation of political prisoners and their irresponsible “open border” policies that have allowed a record number 5 million illegal aliens to enter the US over the past 2 years. This is a good start as we head into the 2024 Presidential Election season and begin the slow process of undoing the wrongs of Biden and returning actual democracy to the USA.
