It’s been over 100 days since protesters entered the Capitol building on January 6th as part of a protest against what many believe was a stolen election. While violent Antifa and BLM rioters are arrested, processed, and released so fast it would make your head spin, our Deep State is keeping hundreds of protesters locked down in jails without bail, and thanks to our dishonest media, most Americans aren’t even aware that this is happening.
American Greatness wrote a lengthy and important piece on the unequal treatment of the men and women charged with entering the Capitol building versus the violent BLM and Antifa rioters. Here’s a part of the article that focuses on the group of more than 200 people who have been charged so far. The FBI has described its effort as a “24/7, full bore extensive operation” and warned that agents from its 56 field offices will be fully engaged.
“The scope and scale of these investigations . . . is really unprecedented not only in FBI history but in DOJ history,” acting Attorney General Michael Sherwin said during a press conference on January 12.
Since all cases will be adjudicated in Washington, D.C., it’s a sure bet that defendants will be shown no mercy in the Trump-hating Beltway legal system also responsible for prosecuting Roger Stone and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn—just a few of the Americans targeted by law enforcement solely based on their ties to Donald Trump.
Authorities admit that the Justice Department’s various sedition strike forces will leverage minor offenses in an attempt to manufacture bigger cases against Trump allies.
“Some of the misdemeanors we’re filing, these are only the beginning; this is not the end,” Sherwin warned. “We’re looking at significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy. Their only marching orders from me are to build sedition and conspiracy charges related to the most heinous acts that occurred in the Capitol, and these are significant charges that have felonies with prison terms of up to 20 years.”
Law enforcement, as promised, isn’t dragging its feet. A federal grand jury already has issued a trove of indictments against several people; charges range from serious assault allegations to silly “obstruction of an official proceeding” technicalities. Some defendants appear to suffer from mental health problems: the so-called “QAnon Shaman” and “Helmet Boy” clearly have issues—neither can organize a cogent sentence, let alone a coup.
Without question, dozens of people acted badly that day. Conduct that resulted in bodily injury or severe property damage should be punished accordingly.
For example, Robert Sanford, a retired firefighter, has been in a Pennsylvania county jail since his arrest on January 14. He’s charged with four counts, including assaulting officers; the FBI alleges he threw something resembling a fire extinguisher at a group of Capitol police.
Sanford will remain behind bars until his trial. Government lawyers accused Sanford of belonging to an “extremist” group because when Sanford’s home was raided after he turned himself in, “agents found a T-shirt worn by members of the white supremacist group the Proud Boys.” (Sanford denied the association.)
A judge agreed, condemning Sanford as a “danger to democracy and our legislators.”
Was he wrong to throw something at cops? Yes. Is he being treated differently because of his political affiliation? Doubtless.
Both the so-called “zip-tie” agitator and his mother are being held without bail and will be transferred from their homes in Tennessee to Washington, D.C. for trial. Eric Munchel and Lisa Eisenhart face various charges including conspiracy and disorderly conduct; despite the media narrative, they did not bring the zip-tie constraints into the Capitol but rather found them in the building.
Today, the Democrat Party’s mainstream media breathlessly reported about Jon Schaffer, a heavy metal guitarist, self-described Anarchist, and lifetime member of the Oathkeepers.
According to CNN, He admitted to carrying bear spray into the Capitol complex during the formal certification of the Electoral College votes.
One hundred days after the January 6 attack, Schaffer is now the first pro-Trump rioter to plead guilty and admit his crimes.
The CNN article presents NO evidence that Schaffer is pro-Trump, but that doesn’t stop the low-ratings cable network from reporting that the heavy metal guitarist is somehow connected to Trump and/or his supporters.
Local WTHR News does, however, report about a 2017 interview with the heavy metal guitarist where Schaffer admits he’s an “Anarchist.”
According to their report, he was among the rioters who sprayed bear spray at Capitol Police (not exactly consistent with the actions of a group made up of former law enforcement officers and veterans).
Watch the dishonest report here:
In the WTHR report, they call the Oathkeepers a “self-described militia group., considered extremist and anti-government” In the “About” section of their website, the Oakthkeepers do NOT refer to themselves as a “militia group.” Perhaps WTHR considers a group of first responders, former law enforcement officers, and veterans “extremists,” but most Americans would consider them heroes.
From the Oathkeepers website: Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial. See the Oath Keepers Declaration of Orders We Will Not Obey for details.
When did defending the US Constitution become an extremist position?
CNN reports – His plea was in the works for at least a few weeks, and recent court filings revealed that he met with federal investigators for several “debrief interviews” last month.
Prosecutors and Schaffer’s attorneys agreed to recommend that he get between 3.5 and 4.5 years in prison, based on how fruitful his cooperation is with the government. The sentencing decision will ultimately be made by federal Judge Amit Mehta, who is overseeing the case.
The Gateway Pundit reached out to Kellye SoRelle, attorney for the Oathkeepers founder Stuart Rhodes to ask about Schaffer and the reports about him being a “founding member” of the Oathkeepers. According to SoRelle, Schaffer’s status as a “founding member” means that he is considered a “lifetime member” of the Oathkeepers. She told us that Schaffer, unlike other Oathkeepers who were at the Elipse to provide security for speakers, Schaffer played no role in the Oathkeeper’s security detail on January 6th.
SoRelle also told the Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft that members of the Oathkeepers arrested in connection with entering the Capitol building on January 6th have been kept in jail without bond since the incident took place and that they have not been allowed to visit with anyone, including family members. According to SoRelle, our government finally allowed the prisoners a 20-minute visit with relatives on Easter Sunday.
Are we still living in America?
