The Washington Post recently published an article titled “Tucker Carlson draws bipartisan backlash for ‘false flag’ claim about Jan. 6 in new documentary.” It quotes politicians critical of Carlson’s documentary. But not one of them had viewed it. It hadn't been released.

But the article does ignore evidence that the media’s Jan. 6 narrative is rubbish.

The media uses the word "insurrection" concerning the Jan. 6 riots — but no one has been charged with that crime (18 U.S. Code § 2383).

Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert asked Attorney General Merrick Garland in a hearing, “Has any defendant involved in the January 6 events been charged with insurrection?” Garland responded, “I don’t believe so.”

Are we to believe that the Department of Justice pays more attention to concerned parents at school board meetings than insurrectionists? Or is it a fact that there were no insurrectionists at the Capitol on Jan. 6?

We've been through this before — the Russian collusion hoax. Funded by the Democrats, enabled by the FBI, and disseminated by the news media, that fiction served the same purpose as the debunked “Jan. 6 insurrection.”

Why is the truth not good enough for the mainstream news?

But let your heart not be troubled. The majority of Americans do not hold the propagandist mainstream media in high regard.

They know obfuscation when they see or hear it.

They know hyperbole when they hear it.

They know lies when they hear it.

They recognize "gaslighting".

The lies started with the death of Officer Brian Sicknick. Liberal media first said he was bludgeoned to death.... only it did not happen. He died of a heart attack. Then they claimed his heart attack was brought on by "bear spray". The medical examiner ruled that out as well. Medical examine Francisco J. Diaz said the autopsy found no evidence of internal or external injuries or of an allergic reaction to the chemical substance.

Gary Miller

534 violent riots during the "summer of love". police injured or killed, businesses burned and looted, public property damaged, or burned with no one arrested or convicted? Jan. 6 one unarmed woman killed by capital cop called an insurection and dozens of people charged with trespassing held for months in solitary confinement. Something is wrong with this comparison.

Gary Scoggin

If not an insurrection what was it?

If it was (as Tucker Carlson and Alex Jones claim) a false flag operation started by a few instigators are you telling me that the crowd of Trump supporters that went along were so weak minded that they were so easily duped into this “protest”?

Carlos Ponce

"If not an insurrection what was it?"

Well, the Liberal media during "The Summer of Love" called looting,rioting, attacks on police, arson on Federal buildings and private property a "Peaceful Demonstration". What happened in the Capitol was far less than that, Gary Scoggin.

Russell Rac

The big difference was all that you listed was not heated and stirred up by a sitting US President.

BTW. Holler at me when your esteemed leader returns to the White House. Luckily that will be never.

Carlos Ponce

"hat they were so easily duped into this 'protest'?"

The majority were selfie-taking grandmas and grandpas. The Capitol police OPENED THE DOORS for them.The most the MAJORITY were charged with was TRESPASSING. But the Liberal media shows only the few that were charged with more than trespassing. So gullible weak minded viewers all ASSume the whole lot acted that way.

Bailey Jones

Gary, it wasn't an insurrection - it was a whole bunch of Trumpsters who broke into the capitol, beat up police, stole government property, pooped all over the walls and terrorized our elected representatives. All at the invitation of a petty wannabe despot and with the tacit support and defense of his minions who - even a year later - still fail to acknowledge the legitimate electoral loss of #worldsbiggestloser. Because they are idiots. And because there is no evidence to the contrary, they can only justify their stupidity and gullibility by making up nonsensical narratives to populate the bizarro world in which they live. And exactly like those who have called the tragic mass murders at Sandy Hook and Parkland "false flag operations" have destroyed their reputations and delegitimized their standing as Americans who deserve to be treated with anything other than absolute disdain and disgust.

Why anyone still entertains the opinions of these traitors and cowards is beyond me.

Carlos Ponce

Bailey is engaged in hyperbole, obfuscation with a lie tossed into the mix.The Democrat Party has the correct mascot but they don't realize they have become jacka...s.

Gary Miller

Bailey > During 2020 there were 534 more violent "riots" with public and private buildings burned and looted, Police were attacked and some killed with none of the rioters arrested. Who decides a riot is bad or not?

Bailey Jones

Gary, we've had 1000s of riots in the history of this country and for a host of reasons. As far as I'm aware, none of them (Civil War excepted) were attempts to overthrow the legitimate government of the US. All riots are bad, this riot was treason.

Let me illustrate how silly your argument sounds to me - "Those 534 "riots" were just happy rallies until a few careless people caused minor damage. If between 100,000 and 1,000,000 people had actually intended to destroy the city they would have been successful."

Gary Miller

Gary S. > It was a happy rally until every media came out with the same lie that it was an insurrection.

Bailey Jones

I'd offer a reply to this letter, but the author's invocation of both Tucker Carlson and Louie Gohmert says it all. Throw in "Baclilff" and we've got a Trumpster Trifecta.

If the Jan. 6 insurrection was a "false flag" operation according to right wingers, then why are the insurrectionists being called "patriots" by those same right wingers? [whistling]

Carlos Ponce

Diane Turski, there are NO insurrectionists. NO ONE has been charged with insurrection.The FBI found NO insurrection. Why are you repeating a lie?

George Laiacona

It would appear that Paula is just another disgruntled Trumper that was hiding under a rock on January 6th. The nonRepublican stations covered the Trump traitor event in real time. The insurrection of South Carolina led to a bloody war. Fortunately we have patriotic authorities that were able to prevent the repeat of the South Carolina disaster. Comments like this one will continue as long as jerks think white supremacy should control our democracy.

Carlos Ponce

Comparing the events of January 6 to the events of South Carolina is really a stretch, George Laiacona.

Charles Douglas

What ever happened to that security police who shot that young female veteran on Janurary 6th because she was protesting? She did not have a weapon of any kind BUT SHE WAS EXECUTED ANYWAY! The Radicals hid the shooter out for months because they knew it was a bad shoot! Nobody from the "LEFT" want to discuss this![beam][beam]

Jim Forsythe

Below is one examples of charges the grandmas and grandpa are facing. Age has nothing to do with the conduct of people that day. The number of people being charged for this is increasing each day. More charges may be added to the ones, now being charged. Those wanted for Capitol violence against the Capitol, have some trying to justify their conduct by saying, they were only taking selfies, which is agreeing that the attempted coup and is ok with you.

Any crowd that wants to “Hang Mike Pence" is not a peaceful crowd. They were attacking the USA, and not just a building. No one was duped into actions against the USA, when they entered a

a restricted building. At that point, they were acting against the USA.

Steven Cappuccio Arrested or charged on: Aug. 9, 2021 Home state: Texas

Charges

Assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers and aiding and abetting; assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers, and aiding and abetting using a dangerous weapon; robbery and aiding and abetting; obstruction of an official proceeding and aiding and abetting; civil disorder; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon; engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon; engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon; disorderly conduct in a Capitol building; act of physical violence in the Capitol grounds or buildings.

With eight others in the indictment, he is charged with attempting to obstruct an official proceeding of Congress.

Cappuccio is listed as No. 123 on the FBI's most wanted list for Capitol violence. At least 123 people acted that way. They are a growing number being charged with more than taking selfies.

Carlos Ponce

8 more people....... REALLY, JIM!

Jim Forsythe

No need in post all.

Jim Forsythe

Carlos, do you not know how to count? Carlos said "8 more people....... REALLY, JIM!"

Please take your time and recount the number of people I posted.

Carlos Ponce

No need? Soooo, it was just a handful, right, Jim?

Carlos Ponce

All together - a handful, not hundreds.

Jim Forsythe

No one would want all to be posted.

Carlos Ponce

Is that the excuse you are using?[rolleyes]

Gary Miller

If between 100,000 and 1,000,000 people had actually intended resurection they would have been successful. A few careless people caused minor damage and will be responcible for it. Most have been charged with trespassing? Trespassing with doors held open for them?

Bailey Jones

Gary, I always enjoy your dispatches from Bizarro Land.

"The cost of repairing damages from the attack on the U.S. Capitol and related security expenses have already topped $30 million and will keep rising, Architect of the Capitol J. Brett Blanton told lawmakers on Wednesday."

https://www.npr.org/sections/insurrection-at-the-capitol/2021/02/24/970977612/architect-of-the-capitol-outlines-30-million-in-damages-from-pro-trump-riot

But I like your term - resurrection. Trying to bring the rotting corpse of a failed presidency back to life is the perfect metaphor.

Carlos Ponce

"The cost of repairing damages from the attack on the U.S. Capitol and related security expenses have already topped $30 million and will keep rising"

That price tag includes more than just repair, Bailey. J. Brett Blanton includes "improvements" - some security, most cosmetic, most not involving the events of January 6th. If the Capitol building was as bad as J. Brett Blanton describes they could not hold legislative sessions there. Some "repairs" are for areas of the Capitol building no one entered.The higher the price tag, the more the "architect" gets. But the gullible believe....[rolleyes]

Gary Miller

I'm curious. Are you people satisfied with the Biden administration you elected (?). A President so stupid he shuts down pipelines? You and he should know the products carried by the pipeline will be delivered by thousands of trucks. A thousand trucks that drive hundreds of miles round trip will be millions of miles of fuel burned. The emissions produced will be hundreds of times more than the pipeline would have produced. Aren't you proud of your stupid president? Are you pleased with the inflation ( a tax ) he creates with his destructive policies?

Bailey Jones

Gary, I don't know of a single person who is satisfied with Biden. He'll probably be a mediocre president at best. But he's achieving the one thing he was elected for - not being Donald J Trump. And I thank God every morning for that.

Admittedly, not being Trump is a low bar, but that's the place that Trumpism has brought us to.

I'll leave it to others to point out the errors in the rest of your analysis.

Carlos Ponce

"I don't know of a single person who is satisfied with Biden."[thumbup]

"But he's achieving the one thing he was elected for - not being Donald J Trump." And that's why no one is satisfied.

Jim Forsythe

One does not have to like Biden to be glade that Trump is not President. Trump has never had the majority of American people vote for him or say they liked Trump.. He has now turned more people against him by doing things like saying he lost because the voting was rigged. Many people were turned off by his handling and or part in the Capital attempted takeover.

Some may think everyone loves Trump, but it is just a select group. Why would the people that voted against Trump in 2020 now be motived to embrace Trump? Trump has not done anything for these individual, for them to think Trump is now OK.

The group that determines who is elected President is the Independent voters, who have no reason to change their mind about Trump.

Carlos Ponce

Stay tuned Jim. I take it you have not been listening nor reading about the Durham findings.

Jim Forsythe

What ever comes out of the Durham findings, will not cause people that do not like Trump, to change their option of him.

How is this report going to change the minds of people who dislike Trump? You never know, it may expose a greater Russia-Trump tie.

Carlos Ponce

Apparently, Jim has not kept up with the Durham indictments.

Charles Douglas

I spect gas will go up to $10 a gallon after a while! Lets see how many friends Joe China will have after that! Lets see how many Radicals will keep lying, and there heads buried in the sand while he keep destroying this nation.

Now Joe China ( Captain Fecal Touch )...has his sights on another Canadian Pipeline coming through Michigan which he and his Green Deal handlers wants to close!

I love it! Lets just see how low Captain Fecal can take this country! I hear Red China has the biggest navy NOW! I'm not surprised. They are getting ready to open up a can of [censored] - WHUP, while JOE FECAL and his clan are over here worried about " Racist Bridges" "Racist Rocks" & "Racist Statues" existing in America! Great Leadership we have in DC!

Jim Forsythe

More USA production restarting, will mean that we are now getting closer to the level of USA crude we had in the past. What we are experiencing with oil prices is a result of reduced amount of domestic crude production because of shutting down USA oil wells.

EIA expects the rising price of crude oil, which started in the fourth quarter of 2020, will contribute to more U.S. crude oil production later this year and next. EIA forecasts monthly domestic crude oil production will reach 11.3 million b/d by the end of 2021 and 11.9 million b/d by the end of 2022.

The building the 2 pipelines will not have any short term effect on supply, because it takes years to get a pipeline open. The price of gas we pay now, is not because of the XL Pipeline not being built .

Carlos Ponce

"More USA production restarting, will mean that we are now getting closer to the level of USA crude we had in the past." so that's why Biden is begging OPEC to increase production.

And I hear, Biden is producing natural gas.

https://www.wtrf.com/top-stories/a-member-of-the-royal-family-claims-joe-biden-allegedly-had-a-long-fart-at-climate-summit/

Gary Miller

Jim > The price of oil is responsible for the price of gasoline. The price of oil has increased because Biden reduced the US share of world production by shutting down drilling on federal property.

Bailey Jones

I admit I don't understand the stance of some of our fine local conservatives. The price of gas in Texas is about $3. That's due to the price of oil being about $80. These are hardly record-setting prices. (see for yourself - https://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/hist/LeafHandler.ashx?n=PET&s=EMM_EPMRU_PTE_STX_DPG&f=W )

I'm no expert - and unlike some ultracrepidarian trolls, I don't pretend to be - but my understanding is that the local oil economy makes money and creates jobs when oil prices are at these moderately high levels, and loses money and kills jobs when oil prices drop - as we experienced during the last few years. I prefer the former to the latter.

Gary Miller

If Gas gets to or close to $10 a gallon a lot of anti Trumpers will be wishing Biden was Trump.

Jim Forsythe

What's your point Carlos? June 30, 2018 Trump said King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud had agreed to his request to boost production by "maybe up to 2,000,000 barrels." Presidents have to contended with others to secure our oil supply. We are in a period where we are increasing production, but until we get all the production

that we lost in the last few years back, we may need help. When wells shut down because of lack of demand for crude, it takes awhile to get production to get back up to the level we were in the past. With the shutdown of wells because of Covid19, we are not producing enough to provide for our needs at this time.

Ted Gillis

The Durham report does not change a thing. It only means that someone lied to the FBI. Lying to the FBI will get you indicted every time. (Go ask Michael Flynn, George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Rick Gates, and the others). The facts are still the facts no matter how you spin it.

Carlos Ponce

There's more to it than that, Ted. There are ties into Biden's administration.

Ted Gillis

Someone in the Biden Administration lied to the FBI? When?

Carlos Ponce

"There are ties into Biden's administration." ,,,, from this Ted Gillis derived "lied to the FBI". TIES, TED, TIES!

First, Quit using capital letters. It’s childish.

Second, I don’t open links.

So I have no idea what you claim is.

Carlos Ponce

Ted, I mean... TED, find a fifth grader to teach you how to open a link.

Note the GCDN has dropped the request not to use caps locks.

I capitalize to grab attention. IT GOT YOUR ATTENTION, DIDN'T IT?

It is not childish.

So you have no idea what my claim is?

"White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan is the 'foreign policy adviser' identified in special counsel John Durham’s indictment of Democratic lawyer Michael Sussmann, according to a report Tuesday."

I’m fully aware of how to open links Carlos, I just don’t trust yours.

You don't trust "my" links because they contradict your FALSE narrative.
