Mystery Shrouds Death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick

You watched it all, the dramatic days before the trial to convict President Trump of inciting insurrection, when the remains of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was honored in the US Capitol and the Dems led by Chairman Joe came to pay their respects.

Don’t misunderstand, I am not saying the officer who died the day after the January 6th attack on the Capitol was unworthy of such an honor, but you know this was all staged by the Dems to create the most emotional impact they could muster in advance of the trial.

Finally however, the story that has been swirling through the media for weeks that the officer died due to a blow to the head by a Trump supporter wielding a fire extinguisher, a story launched into the media ether by the New York Times, is unraveling.

NYT headline on January 8th:

Here (below) at American Greatness, reporter Julie Kelly says the NYT has quietly updated its story.  Hat tip: Bob

Yesterday, I was out and about and got into a discussion about January 6th with my otherwise sensible (but not well-informed) friend who went into an angry tirade about the officer dying by beaten over the head with a fire extinguisher.

Sadly, the myth has now seeped into American consciousness, likely to stay there forever.

The Times’ Superspreader Lie About Officer Sicknick

 

It looks like they did it again.

Like so many fabricated storylines intended to damage Donald Trump and his supporters, the New York Times cited anonymous sources to support a shocking claim in an article alleging Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was murdered by a Trump “insurrectionist” on January 6.

“[P]ro-Trump rioters attacked that citadel of democracy, overpowered Mr. Sicknick, 42, and struck him in the head with a fire extinguisher, according to two law enforcement officials,” Times reporters claimed January 8, the day after Sicknick died. “With a bloody gash in his head, Mr. Sicknick was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support. He died on Thursday evening.”

That horrifying account quickly made its way into the vernacular of journalists, lawmakers, political pundits, and regular Americans without dispute. CNN, as Raheem Kassam detailed here, for weeks repeated the line as fact. Ditto for MSNBC. In a tirade earlier this week, “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough called Donald Trump a “cop killer” and raged that GOP Senators wouldn’t vote to convict. “When you . . . bash police officers’ brains with fire extinguishers, you don’t get a mulligan,” Scarborough fumed in response to Senator Mike Lee’s comment that the president deserved a pass.

The Washington Post editorial board couldn’t get the basics of the sketchy story straight. “Officer Sicknick was pummeled by a rioter wielding a fire extinguisher, according to witnesses,” the paper alleged, even though the Times cited law enforcement officials and not on-the-ground witnesses. The Wall Street Journal also published the claim repeatedly.

Conservatives Took the Bait

Even the once highly respected ‘conservative’ Andrew McCarthy piled on to bash Trump and his supporters.

Building on the Times-seeded Sicknick story, so-called conservative opinion outlets insisted Sicknick had been murdered. In a column advising Democrats how to frame impeachment, National Review’s Andrew McCarthy suggested Sicknick should be the “face of impeachment” because he was “murdered” by Trump-supporting thugs.

“An impeachment manager opening the presentation to the Senate could have declared without hesitation: ‘When Officer Sicknick needed a president, Donald Trump was missing in action. When America needed a commander-in-chief to protect the seat of its democracy, Donald Trump wouldn’t be disturbed—he was busy watching television,’” McCarthy wrote on January 17.

Continue reading the recitation of the lie being spread far and wide.  Then this:

But the narrative about what happened to Sicknick is quickly unraveling, as I wrote earlier this week. Not only is CNN, the network that helped perpetuate the initial storyline for more than a month, questioning the circumstances about Sicknick’s death, so too is the New York Times.

“Though law enforcement officials initially said Officer Sicknick was struck with a fire extinguisher, police sources and investigators are at odds over whether he was hit,” the Times reported February 11.

Medical experts have said he did not die of blunt force trauma, according to one law enforcement official. Investigators have found little evidence to back up the attack with the fire extinguisher as the cause of death, the official said. Instead, they increasingly suspect that a factor was Officer Sicknick being sprayed in the face by some sort of irritant, like mace or bear spray, the law enforcement official said. The development, reported earlier by CNN, has complicated efforts to arrest suspects in Officer Sicknick’s death, as both the police and rioters used spray in the siege. It is difficult to prove who sprayed irritant on Officer Sicknick. [There are some reports that Sicknick’s brother said he was sprayed with pepper spray.—ed]

In fact, the Times has slowly backed away from its original reporting without acknowledging its sole culpability in launching the narrative.The paper’s extensive coverage of Sicknick’s memorial at the Capitol included no mention of the fire extinguisher attack.

“Officer Sicknick was ‘injured while physically engaging with protesters,’ after which he returned to his division office, the Capitol Police said. There, Officer Sicknick collapsed and later died in the hospital,” one reporter wrote February 3.

Read the whole piece here.

Just like the murder of Ashli Babbitt, I expect we will never have the full story.  I agree if it weren’t for the break-in, Sicknick might be alive today, but the mainstream media has once again been complicit in spreading an apparent falsehood for their own purely political agenda.

 

 

Trump Acquitted Again! MAGA Lives!

Surely you have seen the news before now, but I would be remiss if I didn’t give you the ending to the latest assault on President Trump and you, the America Firsters who these people despise.

Attorney Van der veen has hired private security and police have officers guarding his home.

It was riveting TV, well at least the defense lawyers were inspiring, Raskin not so much.

The defense’s testimony featured videos of the hateful threatening language used by Democrats and their supporters as they encouraged rioters who burned and destroyed American cities in 2020.

Keep these videos handy and use them extensively in the days and weeks ahead.

Day 4: President Trump’s Impeachment Defense Team was Superb

 

By the way, it was reported on Fox last night that yesterday’s primary defense lawyer, Michael Van der veen, had experienced attacks to his family home and law firm from the crazed Biden/Harris/Pelosi lovers.  At least a hundred death threats were reported.

Following his acquittal, President Trump issued the following statement.  This line stands out:

“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it!

 

 

Disgraced, in addition to Senator Mitch McConnell who apparently hates the President so much that he took to the Senate floor following the vote to blast him, are seven Senators who voted to convict the President in what Trump’s lawyers meticulously showed was a shameful and unconstitutional witch-hunt.

Even if you didn’t like Trump, the vote to convict was clearly wrong for the future well-being of our Constitutional government.

If one of these is your Senator, speak up where you live.  But whatever you do, don’t stoop to the level of the creeps who vandalized the home of Trump’s defense attorney.

 

Patriots in Utah, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Alaska, Maine, Nebraska, North Carolina, and yes, Kentucky, you have work to do! It might take years in some cases, but never forget!

 

In some ways, I wish we had heard from witnesses, because one of the most pressing questions remaining, at least for me, is this one:

What did Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell know from law enforcement about the coming attack on the Capitol, and yet obviously did nothing to beef up security in advance? 

Either our supposedly great FBI was caught flat-footed by an assortment of troublemakers or they knew what was coming and nothing was done to stop it.  Very scary either way!

I suspect it is that question that the Dems feared when they backed down on their last minute demand for witnesses.

Day 4: President Trump’s Impeachment Defense Team was Superb

I didn’t see all of it, but what I saw was brilliant and exposed the Socialist Dems as liars and hypocrites for the world to see.

In fact, one could argue that the Democrats have done a great service by bringing this phony unconstitutional impeachment trial because there was so much shown on Day 4 that most Americans have never seen before— important facts—because the fake news has been hiding the truth from the country for over 4 years.

But, they succeeded in further driving a wedge to divide America, and maybe that was their goal.

Trump’s America First! followers will be more energized and eager to, shall I say—Fight back—after the crass and shameful attack on Donald Trump and on us!

To warm you up, see this bit of footage the lawyers for our President showed:

And, if you didn’t see it live yesterday, you should make watching the day’s legal arguments a priority this weekend.

Trump’s legal team eviscerated the Democrats.

Some great video showing the hypocrisy of Pelosi, Schumer, Raskin and the rest, was displayed in the first hour.  Some here at 46:20 and again at 57:50 (more throughout the day’s legal arguments).

 

 

The trial should wrap-up today, and once again President Trump will not be found guilty.

We will be watching, however, to see how many Republican Senators ignore the Constitution and the FACTS, display their hatred of the man (and us, his supporters), and vote to impeach Donald Trump.

If you find individual clips at Youtube for the various longer clips used by Trump’s lawyers, send the links my way.  We should have them handy to use throughout social media for years to come!

AFL-CIO’s Trumka: Biden Mistake to Kill XL Pipeline

Correction!  Duh!  I was so p***** that my first version of this post went out with Trumka spelled wrong!  How many of you will let me know?

Foolish Trumka conspired with big business to bring down Trump, the best friend working people ever had in the White House.

 

What an absolute fool this man is!  

I had no sooner posted my previous post about the incredible Time magazine story that fingers one of Trumka’s right hand men as the leader of the “conspiracy” to bring down Donald Trump, and we are expected to believe Trumpka’s crocodile tears over the loss of thousands of union jobs on the pipeline.

Hard Left and Big Business Came Together to “oust” Trump

Hubris personified! Time fingers Mike Podhorzer, senior adviser to the president of the AFL-CIO, as the architect of the “conspiracy.”

You union idiots who listened to Trumka and voted for Biden deserve what you get!

And, one more thing on the Time publication by reporter Molly Ball.

You were fools to publish it. You ‘smart people’ wanted the world to know how clever you were.

Most Trump-loving Americans would have gone to their graves scratching their heads wondering how you traitorous creeps did it, including the role Trumpka and the unions played, but now we know.

It was a conspiracy to steal the presidency!  

Reap what you sow!

From Breitbart:

AFL-CIO’s Trumka: Killing Keystone Pipeline a Mistake — ‘Will Cost Jobs’

AFL-CIO head Richard Trumka on Sunday voiced his criticism of President Joe Biden’s decision to revoke the permit of the Keystone XL Pipeline, a move that directly eliminates 11,000 jobs and could affect 60,000 more.

Trumka told “Axios on HBO” he thinks it was a mistake to halt the construction because it cost jobs and will cost more down the road. He added he thinks Biden acknowledges he made a mistake.

“I wish [Biden] hadn’t done that on the first day,” Trumka said of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Trumka is left hoping and praying that Chairman Joe will find more jobs! What! Building solar panels!

Hard Left and Big Business Came Together to “oust” Trump

.…the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election….

(Molly Ball, Time magazine)

 

If you haven’t yet read the massive tome at Time magazine about the “conspiracy” to defeat Donald Trump, a conspiracy Time writer Molly Ball is cheering.  You must read it, but try not to vomit.

Apparently they all thought they were working to bring peace and harmony (or so they say) back to America by making sure Donald Trump did not win the 2020 presidential race.

Instead they have made a bargain with the devil that I believe will, sooner than later, bring more chaos with the potential to destroy the country.

Nearly 80 million Trump voters are not simply going to walk away.

The first thing we will see is the floodgates open to migrants of all stripes because the Left wants more impoverished people as voters and big business wants the cheap compliant labor (changing America by changing the people).

(I do believe Trump’s controls on immigration were for all of the conspirators his great and fundamental sin.)

But, the destruction of the country and our Constitution will go much, much farther than that.

The Leftwing riots over the summer were part of the plan, but then how do they explain the continued unrest we are seeing now in Biden’s America?

Biden/Harris have not brought peace and harmony and will be merely puppets for the conspirators who put them in the White House. Perhaps sending that message to Biden is why this story was written.

Just this weekend in Washington, DC for example:

Here is how Time begins….

(Thanks to several readers who directed my attention to this depressing, disgusting, but vital-to-see information.)

Trump was right, there was a conspiracy to steal the election from Americans who love Trump, from the deplorables, the smelly Walmart shoppers. The rich, the powerful, and the Left hate us —Trump supporters who make up middle America. 

The article of course doesn’t say that, it couches the work of the conspirators in noble tones.

Save the article, Ball proudly names names (one was Norm Eisen, remember him telling Tucker about the color revolution); make a list of all those who stole the election and never forget what they did….

The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved Stole the 2020 Election

A weird thing happened right after the Nov. 3 election: nothing.

The nation was braced for chaos. Liberal groups had vowed to take to the streets, planning hundreds of protests across the country. Right-wing militias were girding for battle. In a poll before Election Day, 75% of Americans voiced concern about violence.

Frankly I was expecting massive violence on the Left because it was clear that there was no way Hiden Biden was going to win.  And, of course, he didn’t win.  The election was stolen.

Ball continues…

Instead, an eerie quiet descended. As President Trump refused to concede, the response was not mass action but crickets. When media organizations called the race for Joe Biden on Nov. 7, jubilation broke out instead, as people thronged cities across the U.S. to celebrate the democratic process that resulted in Trump’s ouster.

Ball fingers Mike Podhorzer, senior adviser to the president of the AFL-CIO, as the architect of the conspiracy.

A second odd thing happened amid Trump’s attempts to reverse the result: corporate America turned on him.

Hundreds of major business leaders, many of whom had backed Trump’s candidacy and supported his policies, called on him to concede. To the President, something felt amiss. “It was all very, very strange,” Trump said on Dec. 2. “Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint the winner, even while many key states were still being counted.”

In a way, Trump was right.

There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans.

The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day.

Update!  See the AFL-CIO crying crocodile tears after Biden shut down the XL pipeline costing thousands of union jobs.

Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain–inspired by the summer’s massive, sometimes destructive racial-justice protests–in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy.

[….]

This is the inside story of the conspiracy to save [steal!] the 2020 election, based on access to the group’s inner workings, never-before-seen documents and interviews with dozens of those involved from across the political spectrum.

[….]

…. it’s massively important for the country to understand that it didn’t happen accidentally. The system didn’t work magically. Democracy is not self-executing.”

That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures.

The “system’s fragility”—what the hell, she is saying that the system can be hijacked. And, these conspirators have done a marvelous service to America by showing us how that can be done.

In fact, we will see in time, that the conspirators have proven that democracy cannot endure if the people, 75-80 million of us, are treated like scum and mocked by the supposed smart people—elitists on the Left and the Right.

I don’t know about you, but after reading this braggadocious article I now love the word REVENGE.

I’m supposed to deplore the violence at the Capitol on January 6th…but these revelations make it all the more understandable why some patriots lost their cool.  (Yes, I know there were Antifa types there egging people on.)

History has taught that the perception of unfairness is a great motivator for revolution.
