What the J6 Videos Tell Us

To get the easy part out first: they tell us the DNC/MSM Narrative about J6 is false. But, we already knew that.

If you wish to put the worst possible spin on it, what you come away with is a riot. Certainly not something you want to happen and certainly something worth pursuing judicial action against the worst offenders. But it was not an insurrection. They were not trying to overthrow the government nor prevent the normal functions of government. They were just there to express their anger over a vote they felt was tainted and demand that Congress examine the vote before certifying the Presidential winner. Perhaps a forlorn hope. Perhaps even a silly hope. But it is what they wanted – not to end the American system of government, but to ensure that the American system of government functioned as designed.

That is what is really causing the fracture: the sense on the Right – and especially among normal, everyday people – that the system isn’t functioning as it is supposed to. Our Senators are supposed to represent our States. Our Congresspeople are supposed to represent us. The Executive Branch is supposed to see to it that the laws are faithfully enforced. The Judiciary is supposed to smack down with finality any attempt by government to act outside the Constitution. That’s all the protestors wanted – and maybe they did get far more rowdy than they should have, but the demand was for justice and transparency.

What they got was arrested and called domestic terrorists. People who are the very backbone of our nation – the people who do the actual work. Who serve in the military. Who pay their bills, pay their taxes, never steal…they were called domestic terrorists.

Not, it must be said, the people who looted the stores of small businesses. Not the people who burned down buildings. Not the people who set up “autonomous zones” where crime ran rampant. Not the people who attacked the White House. They aren’t the domestic terrorists. The people who live off the workers, who are mostly rich and privileged or welfare bums…they can commit horrific acts of violence and they are barely even arrested…but regular folks go to their government to demand redress of grievances…domestic terrorists.

So, even if you want to puff up J6 as a riot, there is still the massive disparity in treatment – one side gets the book thrown at them, the other side gets barely a slap on the wrist. The shaman guy was apparently escorted at least part of the way in by the police. Plenty of officers had opportunities to quietly arrest the loon, or at least escort him off the premises. They didn’t. And now this harmless kook gets four years…for nothing.

And that brings us to the more difficult aspect of this. Ever since the videos were released last night a growing chorus of voices on the Right have called for them to be ignored, to be denigrated. They demand we accept the Official Narrative (McConnell specifically urged this today) rather than what we can see with our own eyes. They are slandering Tucker Carlson every chance they get (you know I have no love for Carlson: to me, he’s just another MSMer…maybe better than most, but still not my ally). They are still insisting it was an insurrection and that the book needed to be thrown at the J6 protestors. I have never been more angry and disgusted in all my life. Rely on it, a part of me wants the Left to win now, just so I can see these cretins hauled before a tribunal they can’t defend themselves against.

And the GOP politicians and Conservative pundits did this on their own. It wasn’t Democrats or MSMers making their rote demands that the GOP condemn whatever the DNC has targeted for opprobrium…these people did it on their own. They volunteered to be water carriers for the Ruling Class. They are absolutely committed to the DNC Narrative.

And, so, the last fig leaf is off. We know. We can’t ignore it any longer: these people are not on our side. They weren’t fooled. They weren’t uncertain. They weren’t just misinterpreting the data: all along they were maliciously lying, just as the Democrats were. Oh, to be sure, they dressed it up a bit…making this or that complaint about the process and maybe making a barbed remark or two about this or that Democrat involved…but from the start they signed on for the cruise. The story agreed upon by the DNC after January 6th was that Trump incited an attempted coup: and plenty of our own GOPers and fellow Conservatives bought it and committed themselves to it. And they are sticking with it: and that can only mean they’re being paid to do it. No way anyone with a shred of decency sticks to the Narrative after the videos were released. Even if Carlson edited them to be as unfair as possible to the Narrative, the bottom line is that you can see, with your own eyes, that the cops didn’t act to stop people from coming in and, indeed, showed them around.

As of right now, I’m re-committed to Trump in 2024. I can’t vote for anyone else: he’s the only person who has demonstrated by word and deed that he’s on my side. Maybe DeSantis can still do it. We’ll see. But absent DeSantis or some other candidate conclusively proving that they are on my side, I have to stick with Trump. One thing is certain, we can’t go on like this – we must get a political party which is on our side. If we can’t force the GOP to do that, then we’ll have to start from scratch. We must bring an end to this corrupt, lying, murderous Ruling Class.

    Nah, the videos that Tucker Carlson selected—that would be the Tucker Carlson who under oath admitted that he lies to his audience for money—were carefully selected to avoid the violent parts. If I show you some footage of soldiers at the Battle of Bulge sitting around smoking, would you then claim there was no battle? Of course not. But there were certainly times when soldiers were not in the midst of action.

    You act as if it is shear coincidence that the protestors just happened to pick the day that Congress certified the results of the presidential election to forcibly enter the capital building and disrupt the proceedings. The leaders of the Oath Keepers have been convicted of sedition. You have on this blog a prominent commenter who is an officer of a state chapter of the Oath Keepers. It is a seditious organization, not a bunch of tourists who just happened to be in Washington, D.C. on January 6.

    “That is what is really causing the fracture: the sense on the Right – and especially among normal, everyday people – that the system isn’t functioning as it is supposed to.”

    No. What is really causing the fracture is the sense on the right that they aren’t getting their way. That’s what this boils down to. You aren’t getting your way via lawful means so you resort to violence and unlawful means in order to achieve your aims.

    • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 10:05 am

      You act as if it is shear (sic) coincidence that the protestors just happened to pick the day that Congress certified the results of the presidential election to forcibly enter the capital building and disrupt the proceedings.

      Yet every single reference to what happened on January 6 focuses on the intent, so clearly and repeatedly stated, that it was to protest what was looking like a rubber-stamp approval of uncertifiable “certifications” and to request a ten-day delay in doing so. Your panic is evident when you stoop to such a strange and obvious lie.

      “Disrupt” !! Ooooh! So scary, so…….insurrectionist. Not, you understand, to take over the governance of the United States and assume the powers of the government. No, just to engage in some felony strolling and picture-taking.

      You’ve had Oath Keepers—past and present—-explained to you way too many times for you to pretend you don’t know the difference. Spook has also explained his participation—-past and present—-way too many times for you to pretend you don’t know the difference there either. But you just keep on keeping on, reminding us how deeply dishonest you are.

      Why should Tucker show what you people have been showing incessantly for more than a year? Why are you whining that he didn’t repeat your narrative? Did he deny that there was any violence? Of course not. We have all seen THOSE videos. What he is doing is presenting additional information that the Left has desperately tried to hide from us because it proves that they are liars.

      You bleat that the Right “resort(s) to violence and unlawful means” in order to achieve our aims. “Violent”—we know that the acts of violence from the Right are so few, and result in so little damage, that the isolated incident of a few engaging in violence on J6 must be replayed ad nauseum in an attempt to convey the message that “the Right” is violent and scary. Got it.

      So let’s look at the “illegal” part of your whine. 90%, if not more, of what took place on January 6 was not only legal, but an expression of the Constitutional right to petition the government for redress of wrong, and of the right of assembly. 90%, if not more, of what took place on January 6 was peaceful. What we are learning is that of the few who did break laws, many if not most of those incidents were incited by law enforcement and/or government agents. What has your panties in such a twist is that “the Right” is fighting back. Not with the Left’s weapons of choice—bricks and lasers and Molotov cocktails and a wholly complicit lapdog press—but with the simple tactic of presenting the truth so people can make up their own minds.

      And it is driving you people batshit crazy. Like roaches scurrying from the light, you are frantically scurrying about, looking for something that might distract from the devastating revelation of your lies and deceptions. Look what a good little foot soldier you are, obediently repeating the mantra that Tucker Carlson admitted that he lies to his audience for money. Of course he did no such thing, but that flimsy bit of tattered script is pretty much all you people have, so of course you are going to wave it around as if it were true.

      You repeated this so you could try to discredit it. (major fail, by the way) I will repeat it because it is so important, and so true.

      “If you wish to put the worst possible spin on it, what you come away with is a riot. Certainly not something you want to happen and certainly something worth pursuing judicial action against the worst offenders. But it was not an insurrection. They were not trying to overthrow the government nor prevent the normal functions of government. ”

        Why do you lie? Tucker absolutely lies to his audience and hates Trump to boot. Also, here is a hardcore democrat not on board with Tucker & McCarthy.

      • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 12:41 pm

        You insist on reminding us that to the Left, presenting all information instead of just what the presenter likes or believes is unforgivable and proof that he “absolutely lies”. Got it. You’ve made that abundantly clear. To the Left the job of the presenter is to screen material and only present what he or she believes. You’re just going to have to get used to the fact that this is not a belief shared by everyone. The carefully curated “news” you and your kind have so eagerly slurped up has always been predigested with any contrasting information carefully filtered out, so the presence of such information is having an understandable effect on you. It’s very very scary, because to accept it, even in small bits and pieces, implies that at some time you will have to admit that you are wrong.

        I do quibble with your characterization of McConnell as a “hardcore Democrat”. I don’t think he is a hardcore anything. “Hard” is not a word associated with McConnell, in any context.

        Tip: Stop flapping your arms and squawking in feigned outrage, and please drop the transparent effort to deflect attention away from the reality of what is shown on the videos to Tucker Carlson. I know truth is a bitter pill and one which your Leftist masters have not allowed you to taste before. Get used to it. The Left gained its powers in the United States step by step and by not attracting too much attention to its sinister machinations. But Americans aren’t good at that kind of patient generational achievement and pushed too hard, too fast and too dramatically, and now find their blundering lies catching up to them, while the public is starting to catch on to the scams.

        Wait till reality really sets in—when parents realize they mutilated their children based politically based lies, when heart problems show up in such huge numbers that it will no longer work to pretend that this is not due to a lethal combination of government corruption and efforts to control the public, when the planet continues to cool as we increase our distance from the sun and solar activity is proved (once again) to be the defining element of our climate changes, when the utter foolishness of the current (no pun intended) fad of promoting electric vehicles starts to run into its inevitable defects—the speed with which the pendulum is shifting will accelerate. That’s when the Left’s base will be going through what Pennsylvania Dems are dealing with now—“What the F were we thinking?”

        No, around the time that Fielding posted the video I was listening to Dan Bongino’s radio show, and he commented that Mitch was saying the same thing as Schumer. Forty is definitely tuned into that same channel, though.

    • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 10:13 am

      BTW, the fracture started long before J6. It is what got Trump elected, and the threat of closing it is what made the Left so frantic they realized they had to get rid of him at any cost, no matter what it might take.

      The American people recognized this fracture, and were bombarded with propaganda from the Left blaming it on the Right. The Right in American recognized it for what it is—Leftist determination to destabilize our society and divide it into warring factions, to make it easier to take over the country.

      And it is the Right’s growing determination to defend this country with the most potent weapon in any arsenal of public opinion, that of truth, that has you and your fellow travelers so panicked.

      The truth about Covid Panic is coming out, and building momentum as people are starting to realize that they have not only been lied to but subjected to harm and even death in this Stalinesque attack on the very lives of the people to gain political power.

      The truth about other fantasies, such as the “trans” fad, is coming out, as people are starting to see through the silliness and not only recognize that gender can’t be changed but that mentally ill people are being used as pawns by the Left.

      The lies about alleged AGW are falling apart, in spite of the passions of those who fell for them and have the fervor of the truly converted.

      And now the newest and bestest, to the Left, weapon to defeat the Right (and Trump)–that of the J6 narrative—-is blowing up in your faces. No wonder you are so freaked out.

      • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 10:48 am

        One example: Merrick Garland talked about officers assaulted on “that day” and then says, “Five officers died.”

        No officers died that day. The only person “killed” that day was Ashli Babbitt who was shot by a Capitol Police officer. Now multiple police officers committed suicide in the subsequent months. That might raise other questions as to why that might be. But it’s a lie, and grossly misleading to say that they were killed or that they died that day.

        But this is just an example of why Tucker Carlson’s Jan. 6 coverage was so important. Dems and media have been lying about this specific point since the beginning, as Carlson noted, to make the riot worse, to add “deadly” to it. That’s why this lie is so disgusting, yet even now, it’s continuing, proving Tucker’s point. The Democrats don’t care about honesty or the facts, just that narrative.

        I will add that another woman, Roseanne Boyland, also died that day. While the official narrative is that she was crushed to death by the surging crowd, there is video of her being repeatedly slammed over the head with a pole wielded by a DC officer.

      • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 10:55 am

        Kira Davis, on RedState, makes a very good point about the concerns surrounding the release of the videos. I suggest reading her article.

        But I will copy an anecdote of hers, at the end of the article, because it is so important.

        I once, many years ago (too long ago to have made the proper mental notes about title or names) saw a fantastic documentary on The History Channel on the making of the Berlin Wall. It may surprise those of you who even remember what that looked like that it had an architect. Someone actually designed that monstrosity. Someone recorded an interview with that man just before he died…perhaps the early 90s. He was old and cantankerous. He clearly was not pleased with the fall of communism.

        The interviewer must have asked him why East Germany felt it was necessary to put a wall between their nation and West Germany (for you kids – Germany was one Germany, and then it was two, before it was one again). I will never forget his words. I’m not even sure I was a conservative at the time I heard them, it was so long ago. I just remember that they made me feel cold. He said – and I’m paraphrasing to the best of my failing memory, here – “We had to build the wall, so the people could see that socialism works. The people kept leaving, running away, but socialism can’t work without the people, so we had to find a way to keep them in. And then if they would just give it a chance, they could see how great socialism can be.

        This is the attitude of the gatekeepers. They are the ones who believe they have to build the walls around you so that you’ll be forced to sit still long enough to see their plan works, their ideas are the best, and their intentions are right. Once you see that, the walls will melt away. Of course, they’ll melt away not because they’ve been removed, but because you’ve been retrained to see them as blankets instead. They don’t trap you, they warm you.

        IF THEY WOULD JUST GIVE IT A CHANCE. And to make that more likely, the “correct” narratives have to be the only ones allowed.

      • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 11:07 am

        The Eastern Bloc claimed that the Wall was erected to protect its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the “will of the people” in building a socialist state in East Germany. In practice, the Wall prevented the massive emigration and defection that had marked East Germany and the communist Eastern Bloc during the post-World War II period.

        The Berlin Wall was officially referred to as the “Anti-Fascist Protective Wall” by GDR authorities, implying that the NATO countries and West Germany in particular were considered “fascists” by GDR propaganda.

        The Left’s rhetoric and tactics never really change. Even back in the 1940s it had latched onto the word “fascist” as a pejorative describing, in its view, anything anti-Left. But what is really interesting is the same “you will be forced to do this for your own good’ mentality of the tyrant—in this particular example, the claim that “the will of the people” might be tainted by information from the “fascists”, meaning that “the people” must be isolated (“protected”) from the corrosive influence of facts.

        forty is just part of the latest crop of this belief system.

      • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 11:17 am

        If we want the whole picture, the clearest view, it’s critical to assess whether words match with actions and conclusions align with evidence. And that holds true whether we dislike the message in question or it’s music to our ears.

        forty is fighting the conclusions that line up with the evidence.

      • Retired Spook March 8, 2023 / 11:26 am

        I view Forty the same way most news outlets view serial killers and people who engage in mass shootings. Responsible news outlets don’t mention the perpetrator’s name because to do so would give that individual even more recognition than they’ve already gotten by their heinous actions. Forty has never posted anything here that cause me to reflect that I’ve never looked at (fill in the blank) that way before. Why anyone here responds to him/her at this point is beyond me.

      • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 11:29 am

        I do only because, when his/her posts are left on the blog, they just sit there like the steaming pile they are, and to lurkers who read the blog but never post they might appear to be ignored because they represent facts.

        I recognize one of the problems, as some people respond to forty posts instead of waiting for the janitor to show up, so when forty (et al) posts are removed there are orphan “responses” dangling with no context.

    We must bring an end to this corrupt, lying, murderous Ruling Class.

    And it starts by getting rid of people like Forty, Fielding, and Casper. People who aid and abet a corrupt and dishonest ruling class because it feeds some deep insecure pathology within them.

    And Jan 6 is just one of the dishonest layers of shit the Democrats heap upon this country. How about “safe and effective vaccines” which I hope Forty has taken, or how about saving democracy in Ukraine, or open borders so “people can just have a better life”, or climate change and how our SUV’s are destroying the planet, or the best one yet, gender fluidity and men who become women.

    And then the little piece of fuck Forty claims, “well it’s because you’re not getting your way” LOL, no fuck face, it’s because your mental retardation and insecurities and the wholly corrupt people you ignorantly support are a clear and present danger to the country. Time to eliminate people like Forty, then we move up the ladder.

    Here’s a thought after watching Tucker last night. The chief of the capital police is an equity hire (fat, black woman) and the Speaker at the time was an over botoxed bitch from SF, another equity hire, and both were responsible for securing the Capital. It appears as though the female equity hires failed spectacularly. Maybe we should discuss that a bit.

    • Retired Spook March 8, 2023 / 11:48 am

      The biggest difference, though, is that there is no footage in any of that thousands of hours of J6 video that shows a reporter standing in front of a burning building while reporting that “it’s mostly peaceful.”

        Come to think of it, I’m not sure if there is even footage of Tucker Carlson saying “I absolutely believe that the election was stolen” rather than just presenting information that no other ‘news” outlet would touch.

    • Retired Spook March 8, 2023 / 12:27 pm

      I held my nose tightly when I voted for Trump in 2016, and then became one of his staunchest supporters after he kept promise after promise. I’ll have different reservations if he’s the nominee in 2024, but I won’t have to hold my nose. My biggest reservation is that he listened to the wrong people early in his presidency and hired people close to him (John Kelly, Jim Mattis, Christopher Wray, Gina Haspel Anthony Scaramucci, and Tom Price, just to name a few) who were either disloyal or incompetent – or both . He needs to assure me that he learned his lesson.

      If DeSantis is smart, he’ll pass in 2024.

      • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 12:57 pm

        If DeSantis is smart, he’ll pass in 2024.

        I agree. For one thing, Florida law won’t allow him to run unless he resigns as governor. For another, another four years of success in Florida will only help him in 2028. And finally, sadly, running against Trump will just drag the party, and the country, into another Jerry Springer election cycle with Trump bellowing infantile insults and throwing chairs at everyone.

        I wish I had more faith in Trump, but it is waning as I see him attacking people he doesn’t need to attack, in stupid and distasteful ways. I, too, was won over by Trump’s performance as president, but he is rapidly changing my mind when he keeps illustrating bad judgment and cluelessness.

    • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 12:49 pm

      I think DeSantis would and could do it, though it would be with a little more finesse.

      Look at what happened with Disney for an example. And CRT. And venues that allow children to attend drag shows. And the D.A. who refused to prosecute criminals. And the effort to use schools to indoctrinate young children into early sexual activity and deviance.

      • Cluster March 8, 2023 / 1:28 pm

        True. Those are all solid examples. But does he have the stomach to completely overhaul the FBI, CIA, DHS, IRS, etc. ?? My ideal would be to have Trump for four more years to obliterate the Deep State, and pave the way for 8 years of DeSantis.

      • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 1:35 pm

        It’s not that I disagree with having Trump finish what he started in dismantling the Deep State, but I also think DeSantis could do it. He has a deep law background as a prosecutor, and a military background, as well as time in Congress. I think he probably has a better grasp of the details and nuances of the structures of the Deep State than Trump.

        The sole reason I would like DeSantis to back off for now is the predictability of Trump turning the whole election cycle into another Trump shitstorm of petty insults and silly attacks. If he would just shut up about other Republicans and work on what is important, I’d feel a lot better about him. DeSantis is his only real threat, and I think that a reasonable and civil approach to that would probably result in a 2028 DeSantis win. As is, Trump is going to drive away more than he brings in with his childish temper tantrums and insecurity.

        We had, and liked, Trump as warrior. I think it’s time to see if there is such a thing as Trump as statesman.

      • Amazona March 8, 2023 / 2:14 pm

        Here is what I think is a likely scenario—this or a version of this.

        The 2024 election cycle begins, with a Biden/Trump faceoff. Biden is being attacked by a horde of equally inept wannabes, none of whom pose a threat because he has the Left’s machine behind him and controlling things, and Trump is flailing away blindly at real or imagined contenders. Biden support remains stable, because 90% of it isn’t really for Biden, it’s against Trump, and Trump is the most visible and viable opponent at this time.

        Trump fails to bring in new supporters, because the things that made it hard to support him in the past are still there, often magnified. And he is losing support from Trump supporters tired of the melodrama and temper tantrums. They will hold their noses again, if he is the only choice, but they are not enthusiastic.

        And then, in the middle of this Clash of the Titans reformatted as the Stumbling Into Each Other by the Variously Abled, steps up—Tulsi Gabbard. And she is the savior of the moderate Left AND the falling-away Trumpists. She is the sweet voice of reason. She is well known and is eminently likeable. She is a veteran, she is pretty, she is articulate, she has served in Congress, and she isn’t hard-core regarding either party. She was a Democrat who held to some Republican views and then became an Independent, so she would appeal to those to whom the party has become a nightmare of wokism and radical Leftism. In a nation so deeply polarized, a moderate would appeal to voters from either side.

        Tulsi, or someone like her (but I can’t think of anyone) is the real threat to both parties. Biden is a time bomb ready to go off (collapse) at any moment, and an attractive, competent, articulate woman would meet the Dem need to have “the first woman president”. Trump, instead of modifying his blustering persona to broaden his base is narrowing it to the most ardent Trumpists, leaving way too many Republicans unmoored and ready for anyone who seems acceptable.

        I predict that Tulsi Gabbard, particularly if she were to run as a Republican, would fill the vacuum left by the Biden voters who find him scary and distasteful and the Trump voters who feel the same way about him. And I think there would be a surge from both sides toward the middle she would represent.

        What’s the football play where the ball ends up being thrown to the guy on the sidelines no one was watching? Yeah, that play in our national politics.

        I’m with you on Tulsi Gabbard. I like her a lot and think she has the right world views and the right temperament to bring to the executive branch.

        Too bad she’s kind of a socialist. Though when I hear her talk I wonder how committed she is to the structure of socialism, instead of some of the window dressing. She does seem to be reconsidering some of her prior positions so who knows?

    I’ll take my good news where I can find it, even if it falls short of celebration time

    I find it comical that Democrats really think they are landing some shots by pointing out that Tucker said he hated Trump … really? Most of us did at one time or another lol, but more importantly, that’s called “diversity of thought”, a concept lost on Democrats. They are so use to marching in lock step with each other and adoring their leaders (The One We Have All Been Waiting For) that they have lost sight of mature thought processes.

      Look at the accusations we are supposed to find so appalling.

      (1) People on Fox present information on what is happening, letting us make up our own minds about what we see, instead of curating the information and only presenting what they personally believe and—-more important—what they want us to believe.

      (2) Attitudes evolve and change as new information comes in—that is, when they are not locked into a narrative fed to them by their masters.

      This all seems so deeply offensive and significant, the poor trolls just can’t figure out why we don’t care. Well, it’s because we are not robots programmed to believe whatever is fed to us, and we understand human nature.

    RIP Clint Eastwood. He had a long & successful career as an actor, director and producer. His films were quite varied and included westerns, military, police detective, and numerous other roles. He was well liked in Hollywood circles and inspired many others in their acting and directing careers. He was also a life long Republican / Conservative and even spoke at republican the convention.

      My Eastwood fandom goes all the way back to his Rowdy Yates character and I always liked and respected him. He was always a class act

      Love the man, but are you sure he passed?

        It’s a hoax. Clint Eastwood is not dead.

        Are you actually trying to tell us that there might be stuff on the Internet that isn’t true? Oh, no, Jeremiah, say it ain’t so!

        After additional research, it appears he is still alive. My bad. Thanks for catching that. Not sure why there are reports suggesting otherwise.
