The American RFA’s Phase Three: Biden’s Election Coup

As in Russia’s RFA, the DP’s RFA involved an illegal seizure of power using state institutions. In particular, executive branches at the state level seized control of the electoral system and rigged it in favor of Biden and the Democrats. As in Russia’s RFA, affiliated societal elements took to the streets. However, unlike Russia’s case, America’s vibrant civil society included American oligarchs, backed by globalist allies. Together, these forces were able to tilt the electoral playing field in the 2020 presidential election in favor of Biden.

Thus, the U.S. State Department and the U. S. Agency for International Development (USAID) have given millions of dollars in grants to ‘private’ organizations such as George Soros’s Open Society and other of his projects and institutes, the Ford Foundation (on the board of which sits Vice President Kamala Harris’s sister), and other groups, which in turn funded Black Lives Matter (BLM), the communist World Workers’ Party, and other groups that fomented the riots of summer 2020.[1] The ubiquitous DP-allied media focused on incessantly and interpreted te violence for their viewers as justified in view of America’s and Republicans’ innate ‘systemic’, ‘institutionalized racism’ along with other pro-Biden, pro-DP propaganda. In each case that supposedly sparked these violent protest riots, the spark was a false myth. Rather than an innocent black man being shot and killed, as the DP state officials, their media, and BLM, Antifa another radical revolutionaries claimed, these cases involved repeat criminals who had just committed or were involved in committing a crime and either ignored or attacked police when confronted. These protest riots led to the deaths of tens of citizens and police and tens of milliosn of dollars in property damage, including arson and other attacks and destruction of federal court and other building, with local government officials fro the DP in places like Seattle and Portland verbally supporting the protests and the ‘fascist’ Trump never undertaking any significant effort to stop the violence other than verbally pressuring the DP local officials to intervene. In the Russian/Soviet RFA, Yeltsin’s revolutionaries from above acting inside the Russian republic government’s executive and legislative branches against the Union government divided between Gorbachevite reformers and hardline communists, also mobilized the populace on occasion to support the RFA, though the nascent revolution from below did not overthrow the Soviet communist regime. The difference between the Russian/Soviet and American cases so far is that the former did not mobilize violent demonstrators, whereas American revolutionaries from above are.

With the 2020 presidential election over the horizon, Trump was moving to investigate what were being exposed as the various Russiagate hoaxes, and his doubts about the state apparat’s claims as to the cause of COVID-19 pandemic suggested he might seek investigation of that issue as well. The latter, as we now know, represented a grave threat to the DP, since it was durning Obama administration that the U.S. funded ‘gain of function’ biological weapons research in communist China’s now infamous Wuhan laboratory, leading to the accidental leak of the engineered disease.[2] Thus, the new and old DP-controlled media geared up once again for a major disinformation campaign against Trump. They blocked news about the Bidens’ corruption, played up the manufactured impeachment and any misplaced word by Trump, shut down Trump’s and Trump supporters’ social media accounts in the middle of the campaign, and continued to hype the various false Russiagate claims such as the Steel dossier and the hacking of the DNC. At the same time, there was a coordinated state and DP effort to further rig the playing field in the 2020 election to ensure Trump would not be elected.[3]

Most infamously, state governments with federal government and media backing rigged the voting process, opening the way for massive corruption through newly created loopholes and for outright fraud in the voting.[4] In key swing states, most notably, electoral process changes were adopted unconstitutionally by gubernatorial executive orders and/or election commission decisions rather than by the state legislatire as mandated by the states’ and the U.S. constitutions on the pretext of the pandemic. Moreover, in many cases this was done late in the 2020 election campaign. Thus, in the wake of the election, some states have moved to roll back the illegal decisions. In Wisconsin, the state’s supreme court struck down the 2020 electoral changes but only after the election. The court found illegal the discarding of voter identification (ID) requirement.[5] In Virginia, a circuit court ruled illegal the decision by the Virginia Board of Elections that allowed elections officials to count mail-in ballots lacking a postmark and arriving up to three days after the 2020 presidential election.[6] In Pennsylvania the pandemic emergency election changes were not passed by two votes by the Pennsylvania state assembly as required by the Pennsylvanian constitution. In an important challenge after the election, a local Pennsylvania judge ordered a halt to the confirmation of the state’s electoral college delegates because of this violation of constitutional procedure, but the politicized state supreme court stepped in without having been sent an appeal request and overturned the lower court’s decision. The changes are again under legal challenge in the Pennsylvania court and could lead to the repeal of the pandemic emergency voting rules if not the recall of the electors. The plaintiffs argue that Democrat Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf violated the constitution in declaring “emergency and police powers” in response to the pandemic and using those powers to enact election process changes. “Wolf’s unconstitutional actions were part of a designed, nationwide strategy to undermine the 2020 election,” the lawyers note, arguing that the DP governor favored urban Democrat districts over rural Republican ones.[7]

Such improper and illegal pandemic emergency laws allowed machinations to add to Biden and the DP’s take in the election and perhaps push them over the top in these key swing states. For example, DP-supporter Facebook’s Marc Zuckerberg spent $419 million to take advantage of the loopholes created by the states’ DP officials to manufacture and collect pro-DP ballots.[8] Zuckerberg’s money went to pro-DP NGOs which partnered secretly with state election commissions to get out the vote in pro-DP voting districts and help ‘challenged’ voters fill out and turn in their ballots. Just as Russian oligarchs during and immediately after the RFA privatized the state and effectively stole billions of dollars in formerly state property and financed Yeltsin’s RFA-consolidating 1996 election campaign in exchange for more property holdings at bargain prices, American oligarchs effectively bought and rigged an election by privatizing the states’ election management. Thus, one of the Green Bay, Wisconsin partners of the two pro-DP NGOs given grants by Zuckerberg, The National Vote at Home Institute (NVHI), was sold as “a ‘technical assistance partner’ that could ‘support outreach around absentee voting,’ provide and oversee voting machines, consult on methods to cure absentee ballots and even take the duty of curing absentee ballots off of Green Bay’s hands. A few weeks after the cities received their grant, CTCL e-mailed Claire Woodall-Vogg, the executive director of the Milwaukee Election Commission, to offer “an experienced elections staffer that could potentially embed with your staff in Milwaukee in a matter of days. The staffer leading Wisconsin’s portion of the National Vote at Home Institute was an out-of-state Democratic activist named Michael Spitzer-Rubenstein. As soon as he met with Woodall-Vogg, he asked for contacts at the Wisconsin Elections Commission and in the other cities. Spitzer-Rubenstein would eventually take over much of Green Bay’s election planning from the official charged with running the election, Green Bay city clerk Kris Teske.”[9]

One example of a cheating method connected with, but beyond the mail-in balloting scheme that had no legal basis and rigged the voting in Biden’s favor was Facebook’s grant to public organizations supporting DP policy positions that placed mail-in ballot collection boxes to benefit Biden and the DP. This was done again in swing states’ major cities and voting districts that tend to vote for the DP, while Republican districts were virtually ignored. Special targets were the cities of Philadelphia, Detroit, and Milwaukee, where much of the 2020 voter fraud was being reported. One research report notes that the Facebook scheme “violated state law in, at least, the following fashion: 1) the plan circumvented voter identification requirements for absentee ballots by attempting to classify all voters as ‘indefinitely confined’ due to COVID and later, after Wisconsin Supreme Court criticism, by ordering election clerks to not question such claims. 2) the plan initiated the use of drop boxes for ballot collection, significantly breaching the chain of custody of the ballot and failing to maintain proper logs and reviews to ensure all properly cast ballots were counted and all improperly cast ballots were not counted. 3) Initiated the consolidation of counting centers, justifying the flow of hundreds of thousands of ballots to one location and the marginalization of Republican poll watchers such that bipartisan participation in the management, handling, and counting of the ballots was compromised. These are but examples of radical changes in election processes that opened the door for significant fraud. … In Democrat Delaware County, Pennsylvania, one drop box was placed every four square miles and for every 4,000 voters. In the 59 counties carried by Trump in 2016, there was one drop box for every 1,100 square miles and every 72,000 voters.”[10] It is important to remember that coordinated with these efforts in predominantly Afro-American cities in key swing states was the hyper-campaign by the media, the DP, BLM, and Antifa claiming under the banner of false slogans like ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ and claims of institutional racism, including in predominantly black police departments, which mobilized the black vote.

The produced ballots were often deposited in boxes located highly disproportionately in pro-DP districts. The Zuckerberg boxes violated ‘chain of custody requirements mandated by state laws, including special seals, 24-hour camera surveillance, methids of conveyance to vote counting centers, where Republican election observers were often intimidated and routeinely kept to far from the ballot and signature verification process to carry out their legally mandated functions.[11] Moreover, the effort involved sending specially hired curators sent to homes for the elderly and mentally ill to ‘cure’ ballots, help sign and submit mail-in ballots, and recently the first whistleblower of sorts, a Wisconsin county sheriff has disclosed to the state legislature evidence of the kind of benefit this may have brought to the Biden campaing. In one nursing home, 8 of 42 ballots were filled out by elderly persons, whose relatives testified were mentally incapable of performing such an act. The sheriff believes this is just one of many such cases and hopes people will now come forward to expose this one of many forms of fraud the DP facilitated, benenfited from, and denies occurred.[12] Some states are beginning to respond to public complaints and anger over the fraud by conducting audits that are revealing some major questions about whether Biden really one the election. The findings of an official audit carried out in Arizona and completed in September showed that there were 55,000 illegal or improper ballots that should not have been counted in a state where Biden won by a mere 11,000 votes.[13] In just one county in Georgia, where auditing and investigations continue, nearly 7,000 mail-in ballots had no chain of custody record, meaning they probably were completed and inserted into the system illegally in order to commit fraud.[14]

But perhaps the most shocking state intervention in the campaign came from the CIA. Information emerged from Hunter Biden’s laptop in a New York Post article showing extensive involvement of VP Biden — the “Big Guy” as Hunter referred to him in emails – as his son developed business ventures with corrupt Ukrainians, Chinese, and Russians. In response, the CIA – that is 50 former CIA oficials including four directors Brennan, Clapper Panetta, Hayden – like the old U.S. cavalry, charged in to save Biden’s presidential campaign by issuing a statement claiming that the laptop story was “Russian disinformation.”[15] Since then, the FBI has obtained the laptop and a new book by Politico reporter Ben Schreckinger demonstrates without a shadow of doubt that the documents were real and the CIA through its ‘elderly statesmen’ and complicit functionaries knowingly issued a false statement to sway the outcome of a U.S. election.[16] Biden was able to use the CIA alumni’s statement in a presidential debate with Trump.[17] Trump’s FBI began to acknowledge that it had been in possession of Hunter’s laptop since 2019, and an independent analysis confirmed the authenticity of the emails, all of which Hunter then reiterated was nothing but a Russian plot.[18]

Reichstag, Kirov, Trump’s ‘Insurrection’

In February 1933 the Nazis set the German parliament aflame and blamed it on communists in order to clamp down on German society, Jews and other supposedly ‘unclean’ racial and genetic elements, and what remained of constitutional republican government. In December 1934, Soviet dictator Iosif Stalin ordered the assassinatin of his chief competitor for the leadership of the Bolshevik Party, using the assassination to begin the Great Terror. In January 2021, the DP leadership – just inaugurated U.S. President Joe Biden, his Vice President Kamala Harris, House of Representatives minority leader soon to be Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate minority leader soon to be chairman Chuck Schumer, House congressman from Mississipi Bennie Thompson, congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez manufactured a false narrative of the January 6th riot and storming of the Capitol building without investigation and began the process of arresting thousands of innocent attendees to Trump’s speech who marched to the Capitol but did not attempt to enter the Capitol as well as of pursuing people who had nothing to do with the riot or even attended the speech in order to intimidate the RP, other conservatives, and Trump supporters. This has led to the creation of a Select Committee that will function like a Stalinist show trial at least by intimidating political opponents if not leading to thousands more arrests of even people more innocent and distant from the riot-storm (see below).  

There is growing evidence showing that the ‘Trump’s’ 6 January 2021 ‘insurrection’ was at worst a demonstration that got out of hand and had little to do with Trump and ‘at the best’ something quite different that not only did not invlve Trump but was intended to target him and all other enemies, as Obama phrased it, of the DP and its state-embedded agents. The storming of the U.S. Capitol building may not have been led by Trump supporters alone or even at all, and it may have been a false flag operation aided and abeeted if not wholly manufactured andorganized by the FBI. Trump clearly played no role in the ‘insurrection’ other than giving his speech which may have prompted some to join the actual stormers, ‘insurrectionists.’ As I have noted elsewhere, this was a grave mistake by Trump and renders him partially responsible for 1/6, but what happened on that day has been exaggerated by the DP and its state agents beyond even the vaguest resemblance to reality.

The DP-FBI-DC-Capitol Police scenario, promoted most vociferously by DP Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, is as follows. Trump and perhaps others in his administration deliberately whipped up the crowd so that they would storm the Capitol and prevent the Congress’s certification of the presidential election’s results and that Trump, administration officials and/or other Republicans may have helped organize the storming. Here is how one Obama-Clinton-Biden acolyte characterized the ‘insurrection.’ Trump allegedly led a “disorganized but deadly serious attempt to stage a self-coup and halt the peaceful transfer of executive power after he lost the 2020 election to Biden.…on January 6, when a mob whipped up by Trump and his allies—who had spent weeks claiming that the 2020 election had been stolen from him—stormed the U.S. Capitol and tried to stop the formal certification of the election results. The attack on the Capitol was the culmination of four years of conspiracies and lies that Trump and his allies had fed to his supporters on social media platforms, in speeches, and on television.”[19] DP-FBI operatives have provided no evidence to support these claims, and the evidence suggests that Trump did not want or foresee any incursion into the Capitol.

The first picture of history is often distorted in ordinary times, but in the age of disinformation and post-modernist simulacra, journalism has become falsified propaganda frequently diametrically contrary to the facts. Contrary to whipping up hysteria, Trump called on marchers in his Jan. 6 speech to be “peaceful.”[20] Moreover, the attendees to Trump’s speech did not initiate the storm of the Capitol, and the degree to which they joined in remains unclear. As the Washington Post even reported, when the attendees to the speech arrived to the Capitol, the forced entry into the Capitol had already been in progress for more than an hour. “President Trump’s speech didn’t conclude until 1:11pm, and with at least a 45-minute walk between the two locations with crowd-related delays, that would put the first people from Trump’s speech at Capitol Hill no earlier than 1:56pm — a full hour and sixteen minutes after troublemakers arrived. …” The Washington Post also states: “[Capitol Police Chief, Steve] Sund’s outer perimeter on the Capitol’s west side was breached within 15 minutes,” meaning the Capitol was breached over an hour before Trump speech attendees could have even begun to arrive.[21] The New York Times showed that the breach of the Capitol began 20 minutes before Trump’s speech ended.[22] Nevertheless, I consider it to have been irresponsible for Trump to call such a demonstration in the tense circumstances after the election, but those circumstances — the deep polarization and distrust among Americans today — is a function of DP policy and actors, and much less so of Trump’s loose mouth and certainly not of other Republicans.

In fact, before the event Trump sought but was refused additional Capitol police and National Guard troops to secure DC for January 6th, this according to Trump and his chief of staff Mark Meadows have stated that they warned the crowd at the Trump rally would be larger than expected and requested an additional 10,000 troops from the Defense Department and congressional security officials.[23] Then chief of the Capitol police has said he requested but was refused additional forces to secure the Capitol six times by both House and Senate security officials, who are subordinated to those bodies’ leaderships—that is, two of Trump’s most bitter opponents, Pelosi and Senate majority leader and Republican senator from Kentucky Mitch McConnel. Pelosi and McConnell have refused to comment, and the security officials and the Capitol police chief all resigned after 1/6.[24] It appears that DP government officials in the federal and Washington, DC administrations may have intentionally left the Capitol insufficiently secure. What did House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the other leaders in Congress know about the possibility for violence reported by the NYPD and other law enforcement sources about a potential assault on the Congress and the requests prior to 1/6 for additional National Guardsmen and/or Capitol Police? The FBI and NYPD warned the Capitol police and the U.S. Secret Service ahead of 1/6 that some extremists were preparing something perhaps violent and were coming armed. But Capitol Police chief Sund claims he never received the warnings.[25]

The FBI was well aware of extremists who might act disorderly or violently in DC on 1/6; its agents were actively working with them and encouraging them. Elements in the FBI may have instigated or helped to instigate the revolt by infiltrating politicized groups, encouraging them to violence, coordinating their logistics, and otherwise assisting them prepare to crash the Capitol, and those who have been designated as the main plotters told their FBI handlers beforehand that they had no interest in storming the Capitol.[26] Even the New York Times reports that FBI agents were in communications with their insurrectionist minions after they entered the Capitol building.[27]

The ‘insurrection’ was indeed an odd one. No firearms were used or even brandished by the participants on 1/6, and only three persons who were arrested were in possession of firearms at the Capitol.[28] Indeed, as many Antifa counter-protestors were arrested for firearms possession near the Capitol at the time.[29] Capitol police encouraged demonstrators to go onto the Capitol grounds, removing crowd-control barriers, waving demonstrators through, and yelling “Go, go, go”, and some apparent (not necessarily actual) ringleaders of the Capitol ‘insurrectionists’ cordially negotiated with, and promised Capitol police that after they entered the landmark building they would be orderly.[30] It is also known now that at least one Black Lives Matter and/or Antifa member played a very active role in the storming of the Capitol, for which he was arrested and charged. John Sullivan is also a member of a group called ‘Insurgence USA” set up “to end police brutality” and “empower and uplifting black and indigenous voices.” He can be seen in a video of the storming of the Capitol urging rioters forward and once inside called for burning the Capitol down. Sullivan was joined in storming the Capitol by a freelance journalist occasionally employed by the lieft-liberal media organs CNBC and NPR. Ms. Jade Sacker apparently did not inform her occasional employers or law enforcement of the coming ‘insurrection’ but instead participated in it. They took key footage of the shooting of pro-Trump rioter Ashli Babbit, who was the only person killed on 1/6, as well as footage of themselves celebrating their breach of the Capitol.[31]

All of the above raises a slew of questions to determine whether the DP and its allied state apparatus in the FBI, Capitol, other federal agencies, and/or DC government escalated the RFA to the level of risking or inciting violence in the nation’s capital, marking yet another operation in the RFA in which the DP state undertook what it claims others have done. With its warnings, informers, and instigators regarding ‘right-wing’ ‘white supremacist’ extremist plans for 1/6, why did the FBI fail to stop the ‘insurrection’? With its information why did the FBI fail to contact the responsible departments or recommend additional security at the Capitol and/or in DC for 1/6? Why did the various agenices’ supposedly prior warnings of possible violence at the Capitol or in DC on 1/6 come to light only after the event? Should not such law enforcement and security bodies warn the public of potential threats to their safety? It is crucial to determine who were the first intruders into the Capitol building on that fateful day and how many if any of them were the FBI’s recruits, informers, or even agents. This would be germaine to the question of whether the FBI was attempting a standard pre-emptive entrapment or had in fact organized a false flag operation in yet another FBI-DP scheme to incriminate Trump, his supporters, and the RP. Were any of the FBI informant/instigators or those they supposedly were surveilling among the group that first entered the Capitol building before Trump speech attendees arrived? More to the point, did the FBI and other U.S. government organizations instigate and/or lead the ‘insirrection’ as a false flag operation.

The answer to the last question now seems almost certainly to be ‘yes’. Indeed, even the New York Times confirmed in September reported that at least two FBI informants embedded with the Proud Boys were in close contact with their FBI handlers that day. “In a detailed account of his activities contained in the records, the informant, who was part of a group chat of other Proud Boys, described meeting up with scores of men from chapters around the country at 10 a.m. on Jan. 6 at the Washington Monument and eventually marching to the Capitol,” NYT’s Alan Feuer wrote.[32] He added that “the F.B.I. also had an additional informant with ties to another Proud Boys chapter that took part in the sacking of the Capitol.”[33] On 31 October even the DP state’s other organ, The Washington Post (WP) reported that another FBI informant was working with another radical group, the Three-Percenters militia. WP also reported the activity of an FBI “informant in the Midwest,” who tracked militia ‘chatter’ discussing plans to travel to Washington for 1/6. Yet the FBI was unable to warn other agencies to act against the ‘threat’ or to thwart it on its own? This is so because the FBI or elements within and perhaps others in the U.S. government were themselves instigating the ‘insurrection.’[34] Discovery beginning recently in the mostly misdemeanor cases of 1/6 detainees, are confirming that in distinction from and thus addition the FBI’s informants and agents provocateuers (see below), “FBI agents were in the crowd” at the Capitol on 1/6.[35]

More detailed, magisterial journalistic investigations by Revolver have uncovered facts that showing that the FBI beyond simply possessing knowledge that some some could be radicalizing to the point where they might undertake some sort of violence on 1/6, actively and encouraging and mobilizing particular members of the radical conservative groups The Proud Boys and The Oath Keepers’ to act on 1/6, but it had long ago infiltrated these groups with informers, led them in an alleged 2020 plot some reluctantly joined to kidnap the Democrat governor of Michigan, mobilized and helped organize these groups to come to DC for actions on 1/6, and then operationally led them in the days before 1/6 and during the breach of the Capitol itself. The Revolver report on Epps’ 1/6 activity details the activity of ex-Marine Ray Epps on 1/5 and 1/6 inciting Trump followers “to go into the Capitol” and advising them at the Capitol on how to breach the Capitol while avoiding bloodshed. Epps appears in tens of videos taking these actions, in some instances micromanaging the breach, including the first overcoming of Capitol police barriers 10 minutes before the end of Trump’s speech on the Mall some 30 minutes away by foot, leading to the breach of the West Wing. He also helped organize the second breach which occurred at the Western Plaza entrance.[36]

Originally, included in the FBI’s Capitol Violence Most Wanted List, Epps was removed from the list the day after the 30 July 2021 publication of an earlier Revolver report the mysterious FBI protection of Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes. Like Epps, Rhodes has not been charged, no less arrested like 16 members of the group he founded and leads, despite the fact that: (1) he repeatedly called or insurrection after the massive election fraud; (2) he convened planning meetings with his lieutenants; (3) he helped finance the deployment of special teams to the DC area prior to 1/6; (4) on 1/6 he communicated to his charges that he was gong to the Capitol since Trump’s speech had not included a call for insurrection; and (5) that associates of his were arrested for conspiracy to undertake ‘insurrection’, communicating and meeting with Rhodes, including on the Capitol grounds, and entering the Capitol from the South Side on 1/6. Rhodes met with his Oath Keepers after they exited the Capitol, later praised their action, but did not enter the Capitol himself. The state’s indictments and denial of bail briefs in the cases of Rhodes’ associates refer to “PERSON ONE,” who is Rhodes and remains unindicted, and his statements, their meetings with him, and gathering with him outside the Capitol in order to establish their guilt in a conspiracy charge against said associates. That these documents refer to all of the Rhodes’ associates by name but mask Rhodes’ identity by way of the nomenclature ‘PERSON ONE’ – not to mention his and his second in command on 1/6 not having been arrested – demonstrates FBI-state protection for this group’s long-acting leader.[37] In addition, remember that Rhodes is the founder of Oath Keepers, to which these detainees belonged and which the FBI says was at the center of plots to carry out insurrection. Thus, a Revolver report reasonably concludes that Rhodes was the organizer of a “honey trap” to recruit Oath Keepers, an organization over which he had total control, and essentially entrap them for the FBI.[38] In this case the targets of entrapment extended far beyond the perpetrators of 1/6, who violated the Capitol. The DP’s state network centered in the FBI sought to entrap many more and, politically speaking, all Republicans and conservatives, as we shall see below.

But this was not the first false flag operation targeting Republicans and conservatives during the Trump administration. The first was the alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Megan Whitmer, which involved 12 FBI agents and informers among the 26 people involved, indicating another government-led plot to entrap extremists. The plot also involved a plan to storm the Capitol. Both plans were suggested by FBI figures, and Merrick Garland, present U.S. Attorney General, who is investigating 1/6, played a key role in burying the FBI’s tracks in bringing to ‘justice’ the citizens brought into or perhaps entrapped by the plot.[39]

Revolver’s October report on Epps also exposed that Epps worked with other unindicted individuals who led others breach the police barricades. In one video he can be seen standing next to the abovementioned Sullivan, whom Revolver identifies as an ex-Antifa member and who, most astonishingly of all, was expelled from Antifa because of suspicions he was a federal agent. Similar suspicions were aired quite vocally by many Trump supporters about Epps, when he tried to rally them on 1/5 to storm the Capitol the next day. Ryan Samsel, who seems in one video to take orders from Epps to begin the first breach of the Capitol and can then be seen in a different video leaving with Epps for the Western Plaza where they organized the second Capitol breach. Yet, whereas Samsel was arrested within weeks of 1/6, Epps remains free, unwanted, indeed seemingly under the FBI’s protection, suggesting he was its agent provocateur on 1/6.[40] Attorney General Merrick Garland refused to answer questions from Republican congressmen at congressional hearing, but since Repubican congressman Matt Gaetz and eight other congressmen have sent a letter Garland requesting an answer he cannot so easily evade.[41]

What Revolver asks about Rhodes can be said in relation to Epps: “(H)ow does the Justice Department explain its failure to indict Stewart Rhodes on conspiracy charges for nearly six months, when its declared purpose for seeking bail denial for simple trespassers was the DOJ’s stated need to prevent “the immediate danger to the community” defendants allegedly posed? Given that multiple Oath Keepers were charged before the January 20th inauguration citing the need to stop their “immediate danger,” why did the DOJ not file immediate charges against Rhodes, and then make a superseding indictment later in time, as is their routine practice in 1/6 cases?.”[42] Finally, is it far beyond curious that the Biden administration and its FBI warned for months that there was continuing threat from ‘white supremacists’ and ‘Trump insurrectionists’ after 1/6, yet the only actual insurrectionist leaders have not been charged? So it appears that the FBI, Justice Department, and Attorney General Garland are covering up a false flag operation carried out by its operatives and organized by DP-state-FBI elements on 1/6. This matches the RFA pattern of tactically mobilizing potential revolutionary elements ‘below’ in society to assist the kinetic RFA.

We also now know that the FBI informants and agents provocateurs were working on the same insurrection project and the groups they had helped organize to implement it. A video of 1/6 created by the Old Gray Lady, the NYT, shows the FBI-infiltrated Proud Boys joined by what the NYT video’s narrator is an FBI-infiltrated group of some 15 orange-hatted, supposed protesters while walking from the Washington Monument to the Capitol. The narrator identifies a group that a group that includes at least one informant: “Many are marked with orange tape or hats.” Another video in the NYT report shows these same ‘orange men’ stormed the Capitol grounds in the breach led by Epps and Samsel.[43] None of these orange men appear to have been listed on the FBI’s 1/6 wanted list.[44]

The claim that Trump had been involved in a conspiracy to organize an ‘insurrection’ was used by the DP congressional majority to stage another unfounded impeachment—this time the impeachment attained surrealism as it was conducted against private citizen Trump weeks after Biden’s inauguration. The 9-13 February 2020 impeachment trial charging Trump ‘only’ with “incitement to insurrection” acquitted the former president. This next show trial, succeeding the first impeachment and trials of Trump campaign officials in 2017-2019, has justified more censorship on social media, people being fired from work for having supported Trump, and most dangerously the harsh repression of the nearly 700 arrested, almost all for misdemeanors at the Capitol – some of whom were denied access to lawyers, and allegedly beaten, placed in solitary confinement for months, and denied medical care – and the production of yet another ‘show trial’ (see below), signaling the RFA’s road to authoritariaism.[45]

The DP state’s authoritarian disdain for the rule of law has been demonstrated eloquently by the DC government’s refusal to obey a court order to investigate the conditions – beatings and solitary confinement – under which 1/6 detainees are being held and one of DC’s courts being held in contempt by a federal judge.[46] Finally, in November 2021, a federal judge ordered the release of a January 6 detainee with cancer, whom the jail refused treatment – recall this was a charge made against the Russian government in relation to Alexei Navalnyi’s poor health at some point shortly after being imprisoned last year. In doing so, Judge Royce Lamberth described the jail’s conditions as “deplorable” and “beyond belief,” ordered defendant Christopher Worrell be transferred immediately to another jail and released on home detention to start chemotherapy. “This court has zero confidence that the DC jail” will provide the treatment correctly and not retaliate against Worrell,” noted Lamberth. The U.S. Marshals Service is now to tranfer 400 prisoners out of a section of the DC Jail after its inspection discovered cruel conditions in the jail: water being shutoff in many cells for several days, clogged toilets, and one inmate who had been pepper sprayed and withut water could not wash off the spray for days, leading to an infection. According to the Marshals Service, DC Department of Corrections staff was “antagonizing detainees” and “directing detainees to not cooperate with” their inspection. The Marshals’ report noted that “water to cells is routinely shut off for punitive reasons” with many cells being “shut off for days, inhibiting detainees from drinking water, washing hands, or flushing toilets.”[47] DC, of course, is a DP-run state apparatus, controlled by pro-BLM, cultural Marxist politicians. The stage was now set for the revolutionaries from above to ‘come out’ and consummate the transformation of the regime.

That 1/6 was a political ploy and false flag operation undertaken to allow the DP state to make a power grab in a revolution frm above can be best understood by pondering Glen Greenwald’s exposure of the hypocrisy the DP state and its media minions have displayed: “why are you not every day angrily protesting outside of the Biden Justice Department? Or if you can’t get to Washington somewhere on the streets of your own city, angrily protesting the fact that the Biden Justice Department, eight months after or nine months after the events of January 6th, still has not charged even a single person with any of the very grave crimes that you’ve been told over and over by your political leaders, by your party, by the media outlets with which they’re aligned, were committed on that day. Treason, sedition, inciting an insurrection, attempts to kill or murder or kidnap elected political officials. All these crimes that you were told with certainty were committed on that dark, dark day in history what Joe Biden called the gravest attack on American democracy since the Civil War.”[48}
