Gaslighting the Patriot Movement: The False Narrative of January 6th (Pt. 2)

(This is a four article series to help discover the truth behind what took place at the US Capitol one year ago on January 6, 2021)

In my previous article, we asked one of the key questions to discovering the truth about January 6. Was There a violent insurrection by Trump supporters on the US Capitol as widely reported, or was there evidence there may have been something else? Ali Alexander has been a target of the federal investigation from day one. But there is serious doubt given the testimony of people at the Capitol protest, along with zero history of violence* at the events he organized prior to this. We will examine other targets. But before we do, let’s examine the evidence that we do know, which seems to suggest there was something else in play.

What we do know about the initial group that entered the Capitol Building:

  • They entered long before the president’s speech had ended, putting into question that these were all Trump supporters
  • There were other known agitators and instigators on the Capitol grounds discovered before, during and after the so-called insurrection.
  • There were several tells that people in power may have known about this act in advance that clearly WERE NOT Trump supporters.
  • The strange behavior of Capitol Police.
  • The refusal to provide reinforcements for Capitol Police that were approved to activate if things got out of hand.

Among the first group of people entering the Capitol Building was freelance journalist Taylor Hanson. He noticed several behaviors from that initial group that strongly suggests actors, agitators, and instigators, were heavily represented in that initial pack of citizens that climbed the staircase. “I saw multiple agitators changing clothes. You know, they had huge backpacks, they’d have someone guarding the corner, go and change clothes.” Taylor goes on to explain why they were changing clothes. “In the initial phase, it was changing from black bloc into Trump gear…right before it all started.”

These agitators started attacking police, while instigating the people in that group that entered early in the “breech”. Hanson was one of the few that witnessed the murder of Ashli Babbitt at the hands of a Capitol police officer, that Tucker Carlson stated in Patriot Purge, had a history of violence. “She was literally there just to support her president. She wasn’t being violent. She wasn’t breaking anything. She just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.” I would add to that testimony that Babbitt was unarmed and never brandished a weapon. Tragic.

Then there was the mystery man. He had worked up the crowd the night before, and then again before the initial group went into the building. The most intriguing person of interest seen with the leading group was a man by the name of Ray Epps. This man was seen in the crowd inciting Trump supporters to enter the Capitol. Revolver News confirmed that Epps was one of the primary instigators that day. There are many more interesting facts about Epps that call into question his role in this event. One of which was Epps was on the top 20 Insurrection Most Wanted List, yet was never indicted and mysteriously removed after the article from Revolver was released.

In October, Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky questioned Attorney General Merrick Garland about whether there we’re federal agents present. He also asked him about Ray Epps, why he was never arrested, and why he was surreptitiously removed from their most wanted list. AG Garland’s response and inability to maintain eye contact with Massie makes both of these possibilities even more suspect.

Another primary instigator at the Capitol that day was Antifa agitator and Insurgence USA Founder John Sullivan. Unlike Ali Alexander’s group, this activist had a history of inciting crowds to violence. Hanson had witnessed this firsthand when he was attacked by members of his group and Antifa in Utah the year before this event. In a video clip that morning, Sullivan is seen agitating the crowd to violence. “We’re about to burn this place down. And we ain’t waitin’ ‘til the next election!”

There were also stories of individuals present in the Capitol grounds that either worked for government agencies, or had at one time. Many of these people faced charges, lost their security clearances, and were fired from there jobs. In all these cases, again, no evidence of violence or of entering the Capitol Building. Some were invited to attend and simply wanted to witness this historic moment (meaning the peaceful protest of the election certification, which is why many attended in the first place).

One of these good people caught in the swirl of the impromptu Capitol riot (for lack of a better term). This was the story of Mark Ibrahim, a former DEA agent that was, according to Carlson’s report, “forced from his job and indicted just for being there (on Jan. 6)”. Listen to this incredible testimony provided by Tucker Carlson:

“Mark was invited by an FBI informant. A man he had known in Iraq. We have confirmed this is true.

“We have reached out to that man. He denies he encouraged anyone to break the law. But the man DID confirm he was an FBI informant and confirmed the FBI knew he was at the Capitol that day. And he confirmed he invited Mark Ibrahim to the protest

“Ibrahim said the two of them stood outside the building. The FBI informant turned to him and strongly encouraged him to enter the Capitol Building. Ibrahim knew that was illegal and refused to do it. Ibrahim now faces 15 years in federal prison.”

There were many other stories like Mark Ibrahim’s. Too many to cover in this short series. So I encourage you to do your own research about this day and determine for yourself what happened. To assist your research, I will provide more witnesses with links to their stories.

Tomorrow, we will discuss the narrative of how Donald J. Trump incited the crowd at the Capitol that day, which still has not been substantiated to the point of bringing charges against the president. And how the federal government is still attempting to prove that he caused people to break the law. We will review firsthand accounts from peaceful protestors who were there that day and witnessed something entirely different than PM and government reports.

Thank you for finding, revealing and assembling all this timely information.

    1. William,

      Thank you for your kind words and thoughtful response. This is an issue that’s deeply important to me for many reasons. I realize that it is a polarizing subject, as was most everything involving 45. But, obviously, there is something going on here that should concern every citizen. And the sooner we all can set aside the establishment media narrative, the sooner we can discover the truth.


  2. Wow! I can’t believe I had never seen that video with Mr. Massie. I mean, that Epps guy is clearly instigating! He asked whether there were federal agents present and instigating and Garland wouldn’t even comment! That fact that we cannot be reassured otherwise is alarming. It is a shame that people were prosecuted simply for being present! Now that is un-American! You should reference some of this article headlines from CNN or MSNBC to highlight how biased and politicized they are!

    1. John,

      If I’m guilty of anything, its not giving ultra-biased media outlets, like CNN and MSNBC, the time of day. They have plenty of airtime to spew their vile untruths and hate! But to your point, I have used them only to show that bias in past writings. And I will again at the appropriate time. But only peppered lightly. I’ll take it under advisement.

      Thanks, as always!
