‘6 dead in armed insurrection at US Capitol’ a headline blared. 

Hundreds of other headlines or story ledes in the Lame Stream Media noted the same, if not identical, message in the days immediately following the “peaceful protest” that turned into a riot Jan. 6.

The headlines and stories had to be true, didn’t they? 

Why even Socialist Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said it was true in a Jan. 7 press conference. 

“Yesterday, the President of the United States incited an armed insurrection against America, the gleeful desecration of the US Capitol … and the violence targeting Congress are horrors that will forever stay in our nation’s history,” Pelosi ranted.

However, the message was “not” the truth, as were most of the messages or stories explaining how some of the deaths were told. It was – and is – the false narrative of our traitorous Fake News in the country today.

Julie Kelly, political commentator and senior contributor to American Greatness, reviewed the charges filed against the more than 200 people arrested for criminal misconduct related to Jan. 6 and found only 14 defendants face any sort of weapons charge.

Of those 14, “ … just two people have been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm – and there’s no proof either man ‘breached’ the Capitol let alone threatened lawmakers as part of a coordinated, armed insurrection.

The other 12 “dangerous and deadly weapons” charges involved weapons like “two baseball bats, a can of pepper spray, a walking stick/stun gun, an axe, a few fire extinguishers (one in question), a helmet, a riot shield and a collapsible baton,” according to Kelly research.

Of the two firearms charges, one man, Lonnie Coffman, 70, was arrested on 17 firearms violations and was thrown into jail. 

Seems around 1 p.m. that day, officers “noticed what appeared to be a gun on the front seat of a pickup truck parked near the Capitol.” Not actually on Capitol grounds.

“Cops searched the vehicle and found a handgun, a rifle, loaded magazines, and mason jars filled with material they believed were components to make Molotov cocktails.

“Coffman showed up at 6:30 with two small handguns on his possession and was immediately arrested.

“Although he’s been charged with more than a dozen violations of D.C.’s strict gun possession laws, Coffman has not been charged with using his guns, ammunition, or the alleged Molotov cocktails. Further, it’s worth noting that aside from the two pistols found on his person, the other contraband was locked in his truck as the ‘insurrection’ occurred,” Kelly reported.

Coffman – a veteran with no criminal record – is still in jail with no bond. And, authorities are yet to prove he even stepped in a Capitol building.

The other firearm violator was Christopher Alberts, who was arrested near the Capitol … after police found a 9 mm handgun and ammunition in his possession. He “has been charged with one count of unlawful possession of a firearm on Capitol grounds or building, one count of carrying a pistol without a license, one count of possession of ammunition, and one count of trespassing,” Kelly discovered.

“Again, although Alberts was detained near the Capitol, prosecutors do not allege he entered the building or attempted to use his weapon,” she added.

So, we have 14 people arrested on “dangerous and deadly weapons” charges, yet not one of the two “armed insurrectionists” used their firearms in any way that day.

Kelly detailed the written charges provided by freedom of information requests of the charging documents. Examples are rioters used baseball bats to hit, jab at and push officers.

And then we have the death of  Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick.

The New York Times, a deadly enemy within this nation, started things off with the article claiming Sicknick was killed by a fire extinguisher at the hands of Trump “loyalists.”

Again, fast fake news that was picked up by every left-wing news outlet in the nation. Talking heads at MSNBC and CNN were the worst – mimicking falsehoods they knew were not true for every hour of two-and-a-half days until The tash bag NYTimes had to retract its phoney claims.

Since that day, authorities are turning over every stone and twisting every arm trying to prove “bear spray” killed Sicknick. They have reviewed every video they can find, all the Facebook accounts of the more than 300 charged (as of Feb. 26) but cannot find anything other than Sicknick got sprayed – with many others – with a bear repellent.

No autopsy or toxicology report has been made public, which is very unusual seven weeks after a death (as of Feb. 26.)

The left continues to throw around the “fact” that five others – with Sicknick – were murdered by Trump supporters that day.

Again, not true – not a one. Look it up because media isn’t reporting the truth. Go to Metropolitan Police records in D.C.

However one truth is Ashli E. Babbitt, an Air Force veteran from the San Diego area, was shot dead by a Capitol Police Officer that day.

Babbitt, 35, was a senior airman who had served in Iraq, defending this nation. She was reaching through a broken window in the doors to the Capitol Floor when she was shot through the jugular vein and died within minutes. There is a public video of the act. It’s truly sad.

She was unarmed and white.

Had she been an unarmed woman of color, it would be a different story. As it is, the media won’t say a word about her. It’s been quietly swept under the rug. After all, she was a low-life Trump supporter in the left’s eyes.

But, we have the knowledge the FBI is using hundreds of agents and tens of thousands of man hours “investigating the armed insurrection.”

Did they arrest any person during the 30 killings in the summer riots of 2020? Christopher Wray’s FBI is continuing to prove it’s a corrupt partisan swamp dweller.
