        "This isn’t even all of the videos. Who knows what other embarrassments for the media lie in the rest of the 14,000 hours of January 6 footage?"

Now We Know Why Prosecutors Wanted to Keep Jan. 6 Videos Away from the Public

Now We Know Why Prosecutors Wanted to Keep Jan. 6 Videos Away from the Public

US prosecutors say militia members conspired in Capitol riot | Crime News |  Al Jazeera

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When some of this video made its way into the hands of the public, everyone could see exactly why the prosecution didn’t want it to get out: It doesn’t fit the narrative of the ‘deadly insurrection’ that the fake news media has been propagating. Watch for yourself:

The clips cover a period of about 15 minutes on Jan. 6 — between 2:25 p.m. and 2:40 p.m. — in different locations inside the Capitol. They show rioters streaming through open doors and broken windows at an entrance on the Senate side; crowds of people walking into the Crypt, standing in a large crowd, and eventually dispersing; and, finally, rioters exiting as US Capitol Police officers in riot gear gather at the Senate entrance point to stand guard as a mob that’s outside looks in through the broken windows. There is no audio. The cameras are stationed up high and at a distance, providing a wide, stable perspective on the scene.

Tillman is far from a faithful narrator of the footage. She describes the event as an “insurrection,” instead of a riot, although no one has been charged for the “insurrection” and the FBI has not been able to determine that there was any centralized plot to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

There was, indeed, violence in some areas of the Capitol grounds on January 6. But it is not entirely clear that the worst offenders were Trump supporters, rather than anomalous extremists; it appears that the groups are all conflated into a misleading picture of what happened. There were Trump supporters who were merely let into the Capitol building by the Capitol police officers who were supposed to be protecting the building. Many of them merely walked around, took pictures, and protested in a reasonably orderly fashion. This is why many defendants are charged with crimes such as “trespassing” and “parading without a permit.”

       "Crowl did not destroy property, injure anyone or threaten to do so. He is not accused of possessing any weapons or of stealing documents or other items"

The Government’s Case Against Many Jan. 6 Defendants is in Legal Jeopardy

Over 650 people have been criminally charged in connection with the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6.  The main charge against hundreds of these defendants is felony “obstruction” under 18 U.S.C. § 1512(c)(2).

That statute provides:

“Whoever corruptly … obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.”

Most of the other charges against the Jan. 6 defendants involve misdemeanors sounding in trespass, vandalism and disorderly conduct for which the maximum sentence is one year imprisonment, thus making the obstruction charge the most serious by far.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Crowl did not destroy property, injure anyone or threaten to do so. He is not accused of possessing any weapons or of stealing documents or other items belonging to members of Congress. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment provides that “no person shall . . . be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.” The Supreme Court has made clear that this guarantee is violated when the government “takes away someone’s life, liberty, or property under a criminal law so vague that it fails to give ordinary people fair notice of the conduct it punishes, or so standardless that it invites arbitrary enforcement.”

Without such guidelines, explained the high court, a criminal statute would permit “a standardless sweep” that would “allow policemen, prosecutors, and juries to pursue their personal predilections.” How dangerous that would be in the hands of a vengeful DOJ.

       "The substantial loans, designed for businesses hard-hit during the pandemic including to help cover salaries, were granted despite Georges Bergès Gallery employing just two people."

Gallery selling Hunter's art saw federal COVID loan rise from $150k to $500k after Biden took office

The art gallery selling Hunter Biden's paintings saw its federal COVID-19 loan increased from $150,000 to $500,000 after his father took office, it has been revealed.   

Public records, seen by the New York Post, show the Georges Bergès Gallery in Soho, New York City, applied for and was granted a $150,000 COVID disaster assistance loan from the Small Business Administration last year.

In July 2021 - six months after Joe Biden took office - this figure was then revised, awarding the company another $350,000 and more than trebling the total value of the loan.

Just over two months later, the gallery hosted a pop-up show at the famous Milk studios in Hollywood to sell the president's son's paintings which cost between $75,000 and $500,000.

The Soho gallery is also set to hold a New York City show of his work this spring, after it was pushed back from the original launch date this month.

In total, the gallery received around $580,000 in COVID-19 relief payments, after it also received two Paycheck Protection Program loans totaling around $80,000 in April 2020 and February 2021.

The substantial loans, designed for businesses hard-hit during the pandemic including to help cover salaries, were granted despite Georges Bergès Gallery employing just two people.

There is no indication that the president was involved in granting these loans or that his son Hunter profited from the payments - either through payment from the gallery or by it using the money to market his paintings.

However, it comes as questions have already been raised about the ethical implications of Hunter's art dealings. 

Prior to the LA show, an agreement was reached that Bergès would vet sales of Hunter's artwork for potential conflicts of interest and that all buyers would remain anonymous to avoid any potential efforts to influence the Biden administration.  

Yet, video and photos exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com showed Hunter and Bergès entertaining around 200 people at the Milk studios on October 1 for an exclusive invite-only event to showcase his 15 high-priced paintings.

       “It’s unclear who purchased the reproductions (for $75,000 each) — which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece"

        So Hunter can fetch $75,000 for a REPRODUCTION. It doens't even have to be an original. WOW! A person has to be a mighty fine artist to accomplish that feat.

Report: Hunter Biden Sells 5 Pieces of Art for $75,000 Each in Los Angeles Show

Hunter Biden, the president’s son, reportedly sold at least five pieces of art for $75,000 each at his Los Angeles exhibit on October 1.

“The Georges Berges Gallery sold the prints before the Oct. 1 opening of a ‘pop-up’ presentation in Los Angeles, a source familiar with the matter said Thursday,” the New York Post reported. “It’s unclear who purchased the reproductions — which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece by President Biden’s scandal-scarred son — or if any more were sold after the LA show opened.”

The source told the Post the majority of those “allowed to buy works are long-term, private collectors with the gallery, people that Berges knows personally.”

The White House has defended Hunter’s ability to sell art to anonymous investors for up to $500,000, which the administration suggested was under a “veil-of secrecy.”

But reported photos indicate Biden mingled with nearly 200 people, which includes Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, artist Shepard Fairey (maker of the Barack Obama “Hope” poster), musician and animal rights activist Moby, Sugar Ray Leonard, British performance artist Millie Brown, and Gary Baseman.

President George W. Bush’s chief ethics lawyer Richard Painter told the Post the attendees “just illustrates how this veil-of-secrecy idea is not happening.”

Police documents show 'no good reason' for shooting of Ashli Babbitt

Government watchdog gets internal police documents ~~~~~~~~~~

Fox News reports the watchdog obtained more than 500 pages of internal documents from D.C. Metropolitan Police regarding Babbitt's shooting. ~~~~~~~~~~

"These previously secret records show there was no good reason to shoot and kill Ashli Babbitt," said Judicial Watch chief Tom Fitton.

"The Biden-Garland Justice Department and the Pelosi Congress have much to answer for the over the mishandling and cover-up of this scandalous killing of an American citizen by the U.S. Capitol Police."

Babbitt was among those who entered the building, sometimes through broken doors and windows, sometimes through doors held open by security officers, that day. They were protesting the plans for Congress to adopt the suspicious 2020 presidential election race results that gave the White House to Joe Biden.

Those results still remain the subject of various audits that focus on, among other allegations, the fact that state and local officials sometimes changed state law for ballots even though they were not authorized to do that. Further, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg handed out nearly $420 million to two activist groups that then turned the money over to local elections officials with instructions that they use it mostly for recruiting voters from Democrat neighborhoods, an investigation revealed.

The officer who fired the shot was Capitol Police officer Lt. Michael Byrd, who faces no punishment or charges for the killing. The report explained the documents showed "witnesses did not see Babbitt holding a weapon prior to her being shot, and reveal conflicting accounts of whether Byrd verbally warned Babbitt before shooting her."

"Sergeant [redacted] observed a white, female protester was climbing through an opened area where the glass pane had been knocked out. He heard a gunshot and this female fell backwards through the opening. The crowd on the other side of the barricaded east doors, began to step back and some put their hands in the air. Sergeant [redacted] observed Lieutenant Byrd step back just after hearing the gunshot. He did not see anything in the female protester’s hands prior to the gunshot," the police documents confirmed.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Byrd claimed, in his own testimony, that he "saved countless lives" that day.

Corrupt Biden DOJ and FBI Are Now Arresting Any of the Tens of Thousands of Trump Supporters Who Were Standing HUNDREDS of Yards Away from US Capitol

~~~~~~~~~~~

In their arrest affidavit that American hero Jeremy Brown was arrested only because he was standing outside the US Capitol on January 6th. The FBI and Biden DOJ even released a new map that shows anyone who was standing near the US Capitol on January 6th can now be arrested.

This is a new maneuver for the Corrupt FBI and DOJ. They are now arresting anyone who stood within hundreds of feet near the US Capitol. The Capitol was not marked that day when the protesters arrived and the protesters were NEVER warned that they were in an “illegal space.”

This is the two-tiered US Justice system at its finest.

The Justice Department explained in its peculiar arrest affidavit for Brown, an Army Green Beret veteran and Oath Keeper associate, that anyone who set foot anywhere in a giant swath of land ranging from the Capitol’s West side lawn to its East side promenade is technically guilty of trespassing:

Under ordinary circumstances, these “grounds” are open to the public, not “restricted.” But because law enforcement erected some police barriers and fencing there on January 6—barriers that were all but removed before most of the attendees even arrived at the Capitol—thousands of Trump supporters unknowingly crossed an imaginary Maginot Line.

The Trump protesters had NO IDEA this was restricted space.

There were neither signs nor warnings form officials that it was illegal to be standing nearly a quarter-mile from the US Capitol on the one side. The FBI and DOJ are making this up as they go.

        "John Cassara, a former U.S. Intelligence Officer and Treasury Special Agent who is an expert in money laundering investigations, said that were Joe not president, he would probably be in prosecutors' crosshairs by now along with his son."

Joe Biden and Hunter's shared bank accounts could make president target of FBI probe

President Joe Biden could become embroiled in an FBI investigation of Hunter's finances, experts say, as emails reveal the father and son shared accounts and paid each other's bills. 

~~~~~~~~~

Hunter's claim that he and his father shared a bank account also raises serious questions whether funds from the alleged joint account were used for Hunter's May 2018 week-long bender with a prostitute in a Hollywood hotel.

Last December, Hunter admitted in a public statement that he was under federal investigation over his tax affairs. A former federal prosecutor and expert on money laundering and criminal tax law tells DailyMail.com that if money was flowing between Hunter and his father, that could make Joe a target of the probe – but that investigators would have a tough time sitting down with the president.

'Whatever transaction you're looking at, if there's a connection to a family member or a friend, sure the answer is yes [they would be investigated],' the ex-prosecutor, who asked not to be named, said.

'Obviously, if you're talking about the President of the United States, you'd better have a pretty damn good reason to talk to that person.'

The FBI and IRS probe is reportedly also looking into his foreign business relationships and the potential for money laundering charges.

The Senate security committee issued a report last year raising fears that the Chinese government was attempting to influence the White House through a billion-dollar business deal between Hunter's company he co-founded with Schwerin, Rosemont Seneca, and Chinese oil giant CEFC.

John Cassara, a former U.S. Intelligence Officer and Treasury Special Agent who is an expert in money laundering investigations, said that were Joe not president, he would probably be in prosecutors' crosshairs by now along with his son.

'The information available publicly is very worrisome, particularly in the areas of corruption,' Cassara told DailyMail.com.

'They could go at this from all different avenues. Follow the corruption trail and then charge money laundering.

'Corruption is a predicate offense for money laundering. And besides corruption, it's the perception of corruption. This kind of thing should not be happening. It undermines full faith in the US government. It undermines trust and our international reputation. It's an embarrassment.'

       "The second scandal is that many Americans are still unaware of the Biden deals and Joe’s involvement because of the embargo by major outlets. That embargo, which largely continues today, revealed the coordinated corruption of Big Media and Big Tech."

https://nypost.com/2021/10/12/so-wheres-post-pulitzer-for-hunter-biden-expose-goodwin/

So, where’s The Post’s Pulitzer for Hunter Biden exposé?

~~~~~~~~

In many cases, those differences are admirable, but not always, and certainly were not admirable when The Post stood virtually alone a year ago. On this, its first anniversary, the Hunter Biden saga remains an outrageous scandal for two reasons.

One for what it revealed about how Joe Biden’s brothers and surviving son got big payments domestically and from foreign governments and nationals for years while he held public office. The laptop that Hunter abandoned at a Delaware repair shop was bursting with emails and messages revealing a sordid pattern of deals with oligarchs, Chinese Communists and thugs that brought the family tens of millions of dollars.

Moreover, the laptop contained compelling evidence that contradicted Joe's risible claim he never discussed his son's businesses with him. In fact, there was correspondence showing Joe aided Hunter by meeting with his foreign associates.

The second scandal is that many Americans are still unaware of the Biden deals and Joe’s involvement because of the embargo by major outlets. That embargo, which largely continues today, revealed the coordinated corruption of Big Media and Big Tech.

Rather than do their own work on The Post reports, the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN and others tried either to ignore the stories or knock them down. Without a shred of evidence, they swallowed whole the Biden campaign claim of "Russian disinformation" and were aided and abetted when Twitter, Facebook and YouTube blacked out The Post's reports.

This was not an honest case of differing judgments about the laptop’s contents. This was a shared decision to protect Joe Biden during the 2020 presidential campaign.

It was not journalism. It was propaganda.
