Liberal activist arrested, charged with participating in Capitol riot
A progressive activist has been arrested and charged with participating in last week’s U.S. Capitol riot a week after he uploaded footage of the event to YouTube.
Utah resident and anti-Trump activist John Sullivan told Just the News last week that he had been present at the riot, including inside the Capitol, “specifically [as] a journalist, just to record the events that were going down.”
Yet FBI agent Matthew Foulger alleged in an affidavit on Wednesday that, rather than merely act as a journalist during the riots, Sullivan “knowingly and willfully joined a crowd of individuals who forcibly entered the U.S. Capitol and impeded, disrupted, and disturbed the orderly conduct of business by the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.”
Foulger in the affidavit said that footage taken by Sullivan at the riotshows the activist accompanying and cheering on the rioting crowd by saying things such as “Let’s go. This shit is ours!” and “Let’s burn this shit down.”
A national security expert from the Center for Security Policy tells in minute detail what he witnessed on January 6th when he arrived at the US Capitol.
Before you even read this incredible account, here (below), is author Michael Waller’s bio. I know some of the experts at the Center and in fact met Donald Trump in 2015 when he was considering his run for the White House and I was a speaker at a conference put on by the Center for Security Policy in Iowa.
I’m giving you Waller’s bio first, so you know he isn’t just a casual Trump fan who happened to attend the rally, but is an expert in security.
And, by the way, his accountmatches reports I have had from friends of mine who were at the Capitol on that fateful afternoon.
J. Michael Waller is Senior Analyst for Strategy at the Center for Security Policy. His areas of concentration are propaganda, political warfare, psychological warfare, and subversion. He is the former Walter and Leonore Annenberg Professor of International Communication at the Institute of World Politics, a graduate school in Washington, DC. A former instructor with the Naval Postgraduate School, he is an instructor/lecturer at the John F Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg.
Covert Cadre: What I saw leading up to the US Capitol attack
The deadly riot at the US Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the January 6 joint session of Congress.
A small number of cadre used the cover of a huge rally to stage its attack. Before it began, I saw from my vantage point on the West Front of the Capitol, what appeared to be four separate cells or units:
Plainclothes militants. Militant, aggressive men in Trump and MAGA gear at a front police line at the base of the temporary presidential inaugural platform;
Agents-provocateurs. Scattered groups of men exhorting the marchers to gather closely and tightly toward the center of the outside of the Capitol building and prevent them from leaving;
Fake Trump protesters. A few young men wearing Trump or MAGA hats backwards and who did not fit in with the rest of the crowd in terms of their actions and demeanor, whom I presumed to be Antifa or other leftist agitators; and
Disciplined, uniformed column of attackers. A column of organized, disciplined men, wearing similar but not identical camouflage uniforms and black gear, some with helmets and GoPro cameras or wearing subdued Punisher skull patches.
All of these cells or groups stood out from the very large crowd by their behavior and overall demeanor. However, they did not all appear at the same time. Not until the very end did it become apparent there was a prearranged plan to storm the Capitol building, and to manipulate the unsuspecting crowd as cover and as a follow-on force.
It is especially mind-blowing to consider that President Trump was impeached today (again) because our security apparatus failed us and the lives and well-being of tens of thousands of Patriots who had come to peacefully protest were jeopardized.
And, it surely will go down in the history books as a cataclysmic intelligence failure, although not as deadly as the attack on the Twin Towers, but in many ways more impactful for the future of the United States of America.
How is it that the FBI and law enforcement did not see this coming?
Whoever these people are, and I believe they are involved in a massivepsyopsoperation to further suck decent, patriotic and angry Trump supporters into legal trouble, they are not Patriots.
Frankly, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that the FBI was warning that rally goers in all 50 states and at the US Capitol would be armed.
What! Is the FBI trying to instigate trouble?
Here at the Baltimore Sun (breathlessly reporting the news):
FBI warns of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitals next week
WASHINGTON — The FBI is warning of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitals and in Washington, D.C., in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, stoking fears of more bloodshed after last week’s deadly siege at the U.S. Capitol.
An internal FBI bulletin warned, as of Sunday, that the nationwide protests may start later this week and extend through Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration, according to two law enforcement officials who read details of the memo to The Associated Press. Investigators believe some of the people are members of extremist groups, the officials said. The bulletin was first reported by ABC.
“Armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the U.S. Capitol from 17 January through 20 January,” the bulletin said, according to one official. The officials were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
Fortunately the word has gone out to true members of the Patriot movement to stay away.
I saw many alerts on Twitter from reputable people warning that these events (likely fictitious) are not connected to the President but involve shadow groups whose mission it seems is to destabilize the government (as if it isn’t destabilized enough), and to further paint Patriots as wild gun-toting crazies.
Who Is Behind the Planned “Armed March on Capitol Hill” and Is It a Deep State Plot? –UPDATED
WARNING! There are several armed protests at state capitols across the country before inaugural ceremonies next week.
WE ARE URGING YOU NOT TO ATTEND!
Think about this– The far-left tech giants took away President Trump’s ability to communicate freely to the American public following the storming of the US Capitol by Trump supporters, Antifa and other individuals. [Be sure to follow that Antifa link—ed]
For the record, these “armed protests” in the coming days ARE NOT sanctioned by the Trump Campaign.
We are looking more into who is behind this movement.
This is the flyer you may have seen:
Notice there is no organizing group listed on the flyer.
And The Sun posted a social media post on Parler by “Kenneth Brooks” @KennethBrooks1911 who posted the flyer.
Kenneth includes the hashtag “boogaloo” in his announcement.
That is suspect in itself.
The “boogaloo” group is a mysterious group that popped up in the last few years since Trump became president. Although, it does not appear to be a large group, its name pops up frequently in liberal media reports.
After seeing that the AP reported that MOST of the 120 arrested in the immediate aftermath of the Capitol riot were “longtime” Trump supporters I wanted to know who are the others who are not Trump supporters, how many and why were they there.
I do believe that some Patriots were sucked into the chaos, but clearly something else was going on.
For example, why was Black Lives Matteractivist John Sullivan there? Why was he released after taken in for questioning? Very interesting that he was near the scene of the only murder victim.
I was planning to write about Sullivan and some of the others involved, but realized the media morass was too complex for lowly me to unravel.
Will we ever see a thorough and honest investigation of what happened that day? I’m afraid we might not. Trump’s enemies are making sure that Trump will forever be blamed for the violence.
My recommendation to Patriots is to stay away from any rallies this week.
Read, read, read! Keep investigating and exposing where you can through social media, the bias, the fraud and corruption that mainstream media refuses to cover.
LOL! I know we aren’t James O’Keefe, but you must do what you can to spread his superb work far and wide.
SUCCESS: James O’Keefe catches PBS lawyer inciting violence, PBS quickly fires him [VIDEO]
James O’Keefe published a video today where his operatives caught a lawyer working for PBS inciting violence and wanting to take the children of Trump supporters put them in a re-education camp.
And, quietly find like-minded people in your communities and make plans to support each other if the Leftwingers make their move now that they control the government.
I’m looking forward to having a laugh (Leftists do not like to be ridiculed!) next week as Biden is installed surrounded by a veritable Army of National Guardsmen from all surrounding states and even from as far away as Nevada. And, they will be armed we are told!
Heck, they might likely out-number legitimate Biden voters….
Jordan Davidson writing at theFederalistlists some of the many occasions over the last few years when leading Democrats used language to incite unrest among their followers.
We are all aware of the massive, really shameful, double standard when it comes to the media and their favored political pals, but honestly it is this double standard and its blatant unfairness that will fuel further unrest.
While Democratic politicians and the corporate media blamed President Donald Trump for the mob riot at the Capitol on Wednesday, saying his rhetoric incited violence, many of these same lawmakers and bureaucrats have for years called for violence and physical action against those who believe differently than they do.
“Hate to break it to you but if Trump had won, there would have been violence on Wednesday, and it most certainly would have been worse. How do I know? Because Democrats have been endorsing violence as a political tactic throughout the Trump Administration,” wrote Grabien founder Tom Elliott on Twitter.
In 2018, Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California said on MSNBC that if Trump fired special counsel Robert Mueller, there would be “widespread civil unrest” as people would “take to the streets.”
Similarly, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper agreed that if Trump fired Mueller, it would “set off a firestorm not only on the Hill but also in the streets.”
Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged a group of “liberal activists,” to fight back, a sentiment that was met with applause and laughter.
“Michelle [Obama] always says, ‘When they go low, we go high,’” Holder began. “No. No. When they go low, we kick them.”
More recently, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that, in politics, “when you’re in the arena, you have to be ready to take a punch, and you have to be ready to throw a punch … for the children.”
I’m sorry but I can’t help laughing at an image we likely will never see of Nancy in her heels running for cover on Wednesday.
