And while the likes of yours truly*** and other conservatives are suspended or banned at Twitter, a judge agreed with Sullivan’s defense attorney who said it was too much punishment if Sullivan was banned from using social media like Facebook and Twitter because as his defense attorney argued that such a prohibtion was “wildly excessive and insensitive to the role that Facebook and Twitter play in the lives of many young people.”
It is how they reach their friends, he whined.
Here is Politicotrying so hard to white wash Sullivan’s Black Lives Matter instigator role at the US Capitol on January 6th.
Judge refuses to ban Capitol riot suspect from Twitter and Facebook
A federal magistrate judge has turned down prosecutors’ effort to block a man accused of participating in the Capitol riot from using Twitter and Facebook, but ordered him to end his involvement with a business he founded that the Justice Department says promotes and glorifies violent protests.
The defendant, John Sullivan of Utah, has maintained that he attends raucous demonstrations as a journalist, sharing videos through his Insurgence USA website and social media platforms. Sullivan’s defense attorney even filed invoices with the court showing that CNN and NBC each paid Sullivan’s firm $35,000 last month for rights to video he filmed of chaotic scenes outside and inside the Capitol, including the deadly shooting of protester Ashli Babbitt by a U.S. Capitol Police officer.
Sullivan’s politics remain murky. He has described himself as an opponent of Trump and a backer of Black Lives Matter. However, BLM activists in Utah have disowned him, saying he seemed intent on provoking violence at protests.
However, prosecutors contend that Sullivan is not a mere bystander or chronicler of protests. Instead, they say, he actively encourages violence, telling viewers how to make Molotov cocktails and evade identification by police.He was arrested last month on charges stemming from the Jan. 6 riot, including interfering with police during a civil disorder. Sullivan was later hit with an additional charge: obstruction of Congress.
At a hearing on Tuesday afternoon on Sullivan’s release conditions, Washington-based Magistrate Judge Robin Meriweather split the difference between prosecutors seeking to eliminate Sullivan’s presence on the United States’ most popular social media platforms and a defense lawyer who decried what he said was an assault on his client’s constitutional rights.
“I am rejecting the broader prohibition on Twitter and Facebook and encrypted social media platforms,” Meriweather said, also ordering that Sullivan be taken off of 24-hour location monitoring via GPS.
He is just hanging out at home chatting with his friends on Twitter and Facebook, etc.
However, the judge said Sullivan “is to no longer work for Insurgence USA,” will have his internet use monitored by probation officials, and will be banned from using any social media platforms to incite riots, violent protests, armed conflict or violence. He’s also under home detention.
For me the fundamental question is why had no one (Pelosi, McConnell) asked for National Guard troops to arrive before January 6th when supposedly the FBI knew in advance that violence was planned for the 6th.
I don’t know which is more frightening: either the FBI didn’t know in advance, or FBI warnings were ignored.
*** Get this! My Twitter account is suspended because I refused to give them more information about myself.
So, naturally, I figured since it is suspended and they have removed all of my followers, I would simply quit and delete my account.
Guess what! I am not permitted to “deactivate” my account because I am suspended.
First, here is the news from North Carolina at Breitbart:
12-Year-Old Shoots Alleged Intruder to Save Grandmother
A 12-year-old Goldsboro, North Carolina, boy shot and killed an alleged home intruder Saturday night after that intruder allegedly shot his grandmother.
KIRO reports that two alleged intruders entered the home, both of whom fled when the 12-year-old grandson opened fire. One of the two, 19-year-old Khalil Herring, died the grandson shot him.
ABC 11 reports that officers responded to a 911 call Saturday morning just after 1 a.m. and found the 73-year-old grandmother with a gunshot wound. They discovered Herring “at the intersection of William Street and Elm Street,” noting he was also suffering from a gunshot wound.
Both the grandmother and Herring were transported to a hospital. The grandmother survived but Herring succumbed to his injuries.
Last night when I should have been doing some work, I spent time (not wasted!) scrolling around at thePrepper blogsand although the media was already reporting it, I saw the news at Personal Defense Worldabout the Biden administration’s plans to go after your guns.
What! So you would be at the mercy of those gang bangers I told you about in my previous post this morning?
Here is Personal Defense World‘s story yesterday about the latest Chairman Joe plan to strip you of your rights. One more thing for you to get ready to do—defend the Second Amendment.
President Biden Calls on Congress for ‘Commonsense Gun Law Reform’
We finally heard the shot we’ve been expecting. President Joe Biden formally announced his plan to enact strict gun control policies today. The White House press release marks a move widely expected since Biden’s inauguration.
“Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” Biden said in a release.
Pros And Cons of Various Firearms For Home Defense
So, you’ve been watching the crime-filled news. You’ve probably heard stories from neighbors or friends about home break-ins. Maybe you’ve even been the victim of a home invasion. And you’ve finally decided to purchase a firearm. Great!
You are one step closer to being safer in your home. But now you have to decide which weapon you should purchase: handgun, assault rifle, or shotgun. Everybody you ask will have an opinion. But the choice must be yours and yours only.
Call a local gun shop and find out what training you need and what the legal requirements are in your state. I am sure you will find them eager to help you get started. And, don’t be embarrassed about being a newbie—there were millions of you in that same place in 2020.

It is not too late yet!
Please see that in response to questions from readers I’ve begun what is going to be a weekly tutorial of sorts on Community Organizing. This post will be updated regularly and you can find it in my sidebar under the photo of yes, Barack Hussein Obama, community organizer extraordinaire!
By the way, it was reportedon 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 upwhere you live. But whatever you do, don’t stoop to the level of the creeps who vandalized the home of Trump’s defense attorney.
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.
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:
