  1. More stuff was released by Tucker last night, so let the teeth gnashing begin anew. 🙂

    And what’s been released already has changed the landscape on these malicious prosecutions still taking place as well.

    This is what real news reporting looks like, and Julie has been all over this from the start.

  3. So we also now know that not one member of the Jan6 Farce Committee actually viewed the video in question. Not. A. One.

    And this will be why his conviction is tossed.

  4. They lie right to your face, yet some still believe the garbage they push.

    Again, no officers died that day. Some of the 4 suicides were weeks later. One has to wonder if their conscience got the best of them.

  6. These clueless and corrupt judges are being exposed as well. They keep allowing the govt to hide exculpatory evidence from defendants, a clear violation of their rights and our legal system.

  12. Looks like that “entertainer” is showing the the media how to do journalism. Be nice if they paid attention, maybe try it sometime.


    “Pundits have been lining up to echo Schumer in attacking Carlson for being sleazy and dangerous. But Carlson has gone to some lengths to avoid being irresponsible: he ran the footage he’s used past Capitol police and complied with their requests to avoid security risks.”

    “Last night, Carlson further explored the biggest and most mystifying question around January 6: how did the Capitol’s security forces, then presided by Democratic House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi fail quite so spectacularly? All sorts of intelligence analysts had warned that January 6, the day the 2020 election result was confirmed in the Senate, was likely to be an occasion of angry protests. Yet the Capitol police were unprepared and some of their behavior was perplexing. Asking questions about their failure isn’t dangerous. It’s good journalism.”


    Good journalists would have asked for and FOIAed all this video.

    But they didn’t bother, they just ran with the Dem narrative, like good little propagandists.

    Tucker’s crime is he showed them up. Again.

  13. You’d think the media might be interested when folks have their civil liberties and rights taken away.

    But you’d be wrong. They don’t care, as long as the right people are targeted.

    Instead they double down on the lies, because this exposes them too.

    “An egregious denial of due process for Jan. 6 protesters”


    “For more than two years, while they controlled every lever of power in Washington, the Democratic Party and their media allies told a one-sided story about what happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

    For more than two years, the surveillance footage from the 2021 Capitol riot, aired this week by Tucker Carlson, was kept from the American public by a Democratic Congress so a false narrative became cemented in the public consciousness.

    For more than two years, footage that could have exonerated Jan. 6 defendants was kept from their legal teams.

    People are in prison because of that cover-up.

    Take the footage aired by Carlson Monday night of so-called “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley being escorted around the Capitol by police officers who help him open the door and enter the empty Senate chamber.

    It is hard to reconcile these calm and even cordial scenes with the nearly four-year prison sentence Chansley now is serving for “obstructing an official proceeding.”

    Contrary to what apologists have been saying since Carlson began airing the footage, all this material has not previously been made available to the J6 defendants, some of whom have been jailed without trial for two years, in violation of their constitutional right to a fair and speedy trial.

    Grounds for appeal
    New York lawyer Joseph McBride, one of the few heroes of this ugly saga, represents six J6 defendants and says a significant proportion of the 41,000 hours of surveillance footage House Speaker Kevin McCarthy released to Carlson was kept from his clients and should give them “grounds for appeal.”

    Chansley lawyer Bill Shipley, also told Fox News legal analyst Jonathan Turley that his defense team “did not have this material.”

    McBride says the J6 committee’s deceptions and pejorative comments about “MAGA Republicans” from President Biden “have poisoned the DC jury pool beyond repair,” which also is grounds for appeal.”

    “It is egregious the way these people have been treated, for as much as two years pretrial, before any finding of fact. When people find out what has been going on in the DC gulag, it is going to shock the American conscience forever,” the lawyer said.

    A new book about the J6 prisoners, “Due Process Denied,” tells a tale of hell in the Washington, DC, “gulag,” the Central Detention Facility in southeast Washington where most have been housed.

    Cynthia Hughes writes poignantly of one defendant who committed suicide rather than go back to jail.

    The defendants have been kept in a separate unit with mold on the walls, brown water and generally unsanitary conditions, are subjected to 23 hours a day of solitary confinement, denied adequate food, medical treatment and religious services.

    Their only solace is that every night at 9 p.m., they gather to sing the national anthem.”


    And the media could care less.

  14. Self reflection?

    Not from these clowns.

    “Critics of Fox News Need To Look in the Mirror”


    “Seizing an opening in their long war against Fox News, mainstream news outlets are blasting out reports that some of the network’s leading stars appear to have knowingly lied about the 2020 election.

    In blanket coverage that echoes reporting on the invasion of Normandy, they are hammering Fox with one-sided court documents that suggest they deceived their audience by pretending Trump might have won when they knew he had lost. The charge that this episode proves Fox is not a legitimate news outlet is overkill, but if the emails and texts released so far are not just cherry-picked tidbits, the actions of some of its hosts were indefensible.

    At a time when trust in the media is near all-time lows, it is heartening to see news outlets draw a red line by defining dishonesty as one of our profession’s grave sins. We must never lie to you.

    But this raises a question for Fox’s accusers: Do you ever look in the mirror? During the past few years, the New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, CNN, and the many national and local outlets that take their cues from them have advanced a cavalcade of false narratives.

    If they are not lying about their commitment to truth, they must honestly believe that:

    Donald Trump and his advisors conspired with Vladimir Putin to steal the 2020 election.

    Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation.

    The summer protests of 2020 were mostly peaceful.

    Jan. 6 was a dress rehearsal for civil war.

    Antifa is just an idea.

    The southern U.S. border is secure.

    John Fetterman was healthy enough to serve in the Senate.

    Only a racist conspiracy theorist could suspect that COVID-19 could have leaked from the Chinese lab that was experimenting with similar viruses.
    Critical race theory is only taught in a few law school classes.

    The American Revolution was fought to preserve slavery.

    Ron DeSantis is seeking to prevent Florida teachers from discussing slavery or saying the word “gay.”

    Men can menstruate and give birth.

    Six-year-olds are capable of making irrevocable life decisions.

    A gang of MAGA Republicans carrying nooses were roaming the frigid streets of Chicago at 2 a.m. when they happened upon Jussie Smollett.

    A man repeatedly shouted racial slurs during a Duke v. Brigham Young volleyball game and not a single fan in the crowded arena tried to stop him.

    Though far from complete, this list suggests the blizzard of misinformation mainstream outlets are burying us in. You wonder: Are they intentionally dishonest or just damn fools?

    Journalists occupy a special place in our society – they are members of the vaunted Fourth Estate – because they are supposed to be honest brokers in a world of shading spinners. Their mandate is to combine open-minded curiosity with unforgiving skepticism to challenge claims.

    Instead, they have embraced ideology and result-oriented activism that seeks to shape reality rather than report it, which has eroded trust in the industry – and hurt the country in the process.”

    Or C, Both.

    C. Final answer.

  15. Minnesota is lost.

    “Minnesota about to become a kidnapping sanctuary state”


    “My governor Tim Walz has decided that kidnapping a child is a good thing if you do it for the right reasons.

    He has issued an Executive Order to ensure that the State of Minnesota will protect a child’s kidnapper if they promise it was to sterilize and mutilate him or her.

    No, I am not kidding. He apparently likes the cut of Gavin Newsom’s jib and decided to one-up the California governor by foregoing the niceties of passing an unconstitutional law and simply issuing an executive order.

    There is, of course, an “emergency” that requires him to do this. Children, you see, live in states where their “right” to have their breasts and penises chopped off is under threat. Something, surely, must be done, and Minnesota is the place to do it.

    I am not joking or even exaggerating about the protection of kidnapping. The order literally puts the resources of the state behind protecting people who illegally bring a child to Minnesota in order to subject them to experimental, life-altering procedures.”

    “The governor’s order is bizarre and appalling, and of course, based entirely upon a ridiculous interpretation of the scientific literature regarding gender care. Nearly every other country in the Western world is pulling back from the mad rush to sterilize and mutilate children; the United States is becoming increasingly isolated in this regard.

    For obvious reasons. There is literally no actual science backing up the expansive claims of either the safety of gender-affirming care or the effectiveness of the practices in alleviating the distress that patients suffer.

    Worse, there is literally no long-term research regarding the effects over the years, because there simply could not be any. The practices on children are new. What we do know is that the claims regarding side effects being minimal to non-existent are total bunk.

    None of this is science. It is an ideology that some scientists are promoting, as some scientists have promoted literally every quack practice in history.”

  21. AJ – Towards the end of yesterday’s thread, you replied to DJ with:

    “DJ at 7:11,

    And that has nothing at all to do with Jan 6.

    But you knew that.”

    That “But you knew that” is a quip you sometimes add at the end of a comment replying to someone, usually to HRW. That statement rudely insinuates that the person is lying or is being disingenuous. Do you think that DJ was doing either of those?

    Btw, she was not referring to Jan. 6 particularly, but to Carlson’s disingenuousness (to say the least) on his show.
