After nearly a year-long investigation looking for the supposed crime of insurrection, the January 6 rally has the appearance of having been a false flag operation, which is defined as a hostile or harmful action that is designed to look like it was perpetrated by someone other than the person or group responsible for it.
This has been common in the socialist revolutions throughout the 20th century. Often a massacre occurs and the ones doing the deed are dressed in the uniforms of their opposition. Leaflets printed of the uniformed men near the dead are convincing to the ignorant. The innocent targeted enemy was discredited and blamed by the public.
Though billed by the controlled press as an insurrection to take over the government, only one firearm was used -- that by the capitol police killing an unarmed woman, a veteran who had defended her country in Iraq and participated in the rally. Nothing in the video coverage released showed her posing a threat to the officer who killed her.
Insurgency is defined as "the organized use of subversion and violence to seize, nullify or challenge political control of a region. Insurgents seek to subvert or displace the government and completely or partially control the resources and population of a given territory."
Democrats are anxious to define this mostly peaceful demonstration as insurgency but none of it fits the definition above. As far as I know, no insurgency in history has ever been tried without military-styled weaponry. The only "weapons" used appear to be one baton to break a window, flag poles, an alleged fire extinguisher and some hand sprayers. Good luck! Not one participant has been charged with insurrection!
But violence was a part of January 6. It is in the clips that were shown hundreds of times by our compromised media: Capitol Building windows were broken, police and demonstrators did clash and Ashley Babbit was shot and killed by Capitol Police.
A deeper dive into the clips also shows police opening doors of the building -- even waving demonstrators in, and police and demonstrators visiting with each other in a friendly manner. There also exists video footage showing the police throwing a stun grenade into the middle of a nonthreatening crowd outside.
Clearly heard on the same clip, from someone in the crowd, was, "You guys started this! You guys started this!"
The January 6 Commission demonstrates no interest in investigating any of these stories; defining Trump and followers as insurrectionists is the only thing that matters to them (Jan. 6, Insurrection, Greg Kelly, Nov 3, 2021, Newsmax).
Who were these agitators? One is likely to have been Ray Ebbs, shown in film footage telling everyone to go into the Capitol building, and others saying, "No, No, No! You're a fed! You're a fed! You're a fed!" He was initially thought to be a suspect trying to incite the crowd -- even photographed as a suspect, photo 16, on the FBI wanted list, but subsequently removed from the list. Most believe him to be an FBI informer posing as a patriot but hired to bring violence to the demonstration.
Another probable FBI informant was an alleged bomber, though photographed holding a phone, but never identified. This information was used to make the alleged "insurrection" appear more extreme. The Committee has shown no interest in investigating these stories either. Nor that of the known presence of several Antifa thugs dressed as Trump supporters known to have been bused in and previously active in the Summer 2020 riots, especially John Sullivan, who admitted on camera his activity in the supposed patriot "insurrection." If any of these stories involving the FBI are true, the long-trusted organization is taking on the characteristics of Hitler's SS.
Regarding the entrance into the Capitol building, Attorney Merrick Garland testified that the number arrested was about 650.
Congressmen Louie Gomez then asked him about the FBI's potential role on January 6. "How many protesters on January 6 were charged with obstructing an official proceeding for four to six hours? Do you know?"
Garland answered, "I do not know the exact number." These were charged he said, "into three groups: assaulting officers, obstructing proceedings and conspiring to obstruct proceedings," but again, no one for insurrection -- not one!
Then Gomez hit Garland with this revealing question. "Regarding the men who broke the glass in the two doors there at the Speakers lobby, when the two Capitol police, who had been standing there, moved to the side to allow them access. Were any of those people who broke glass and did damage to those doors working for the FBI or federal law enforcement entities?"
Garland stumbled, "Ah, ah, this is an ongoing criminal investigation. I'm really not at liberty to discuss. There have been some filings of um, um, ah, in the nature of discovery which has been provided to the defendant but ah, ah, other than that, I can't discuss that now" (Ep. 2607B--Big Tech [DS] Panic, Strategically Planned, Dark to Light, [Truth] = End, Oct. 21, 2021, 33:45).
Of course, they were. Some undercover FBI agents dressed as Trump supporters, with Capitol police looking on, broke those windows and were first to enter the building.
Not one person has been charged with insurrection nor will be. Increasingly, information is revealing the role of the FBI, the Capitol Police, Antifa and those that directed all this, especially Nancy Pelosi, as accomplices. Washington D.C. is governed by the House of Representatives, Pelosi is presently its speaker. Nothing happens there without her knowledge. Until an investigation includes these participants, the truth will remain hidden, but that may mean an investigation of the investigators. This event certainly meets the definition of a red flag event but, instead of exposing Trump as intended, the Left is exposing itself.
