The “siege” on January 6, 2021, has been called a “coup” (Jamie Raskin, D‒Maryland), a “brutal assault on our Republic” (Dan Newhouse, R‒Washington), a “white nationalist insurrection” (Adam Schiff, D‒California) that caused “death and destruction in the most sacred space in our Republic” (Liz Cheney, R‒Wyoming), an “act of sedition” (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D‒New York), and “one of the darkest days in American history” (NPR):
“Wednesday will go down as one of the darkest days in American history. It was all egged on by a sitting president, who has been unable to accept losing his bid for reelection and who persuaded millions of his followers to buy into baseless, debunked and disproved conspiracy theories.”
Hundreds of “protesters” with flags and Trump paraphernalia “stormed” the Capitol building, pushing down barricades, charging up the stairs, climbing the walls, and barging into the building, where they roamed around, broke glass, carried off souvenirs like Nancy Pelosi’s lectern, terrorized the Senators and Congressmen, and reportedly killed several people.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spelled it out in a lengthy video for her supporters, saying she had “a very close encounter where I thought I was going to die” and “many, many members of the House were nearly assassinated.” As it turns out, AOC was not in the Capitol building at the time but in her office in the Cannon building instead.
This “traumatized” young woman is practicing her acting skills while having trouble keeping a straight face. Her message is that Trump must be removed from office immediately, due to his role in inciting the “insurrection.” Not only Trump, but all those in his cabinet have the blood of five people on their hands, according to AOC.

Unfortunately, many in America were actually traumatized, just by watching the event as presented on TV. This official story has been repeated over and over, accompanied by video clips, stills, and interviews, driving home a scenario that is totally false, as will be seen.
Who stormed the Capitol?
The official narrative blames Trump supporters, who were supposedly “egged on” by the President’s rhetoric at his “Save America” rally on January 6 at the Ellipse near the White House. After Trump’s speech, the crowd walked to the Capitol to protest the certification of the Electoral College vote, in the hope that totals for Biden in the swing states might be successfully challenged. The President’s speech ended at 1:11 pm, and the walk took approximately 45 minutes, with the Trump crowd arriving around 2 pm. However, the first “protesters” arrived at the Capitol at 12:40 pm, and flash bangs were going off even before Trump had finished his speech.

The “mob” in the vanguard did not even hear Trump’s speech. So who were they, and why were they there? Evidence points to a bunch of leftists, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter operatives who dressed up as Trump supporters and led the charge, pulling in others behind them. A “manhunt” for the perpetrators has turned up some inconvenient rioters, who were identified by cell phone videos that were posted online. These include the flamboyant actor and “shaman” Jake Angeli, with a horned fur hat and a face painted like an American flag, along with various other miscreants who look nothing like Trump supporters.

Aaron Mostofsky, wearing fur pelts and a bullet-proof vest, is a registered Democrat and the son of Brooklyn judge Shlomo Mostofsky. Posing as a Trump supporter, no matter how unlikely his appearance and pedigree, he told the New York Post, “We were cheated. I don’t think 75 million people voted for Trump – I think it was close to 85 million.” His brother claimed that Aaron was “pushed inside” the building and “he definitely was not part of the riot.”

One of the most transparent imposters is John Sullivan, aka Jayden X, who posted many of the videos taken during the “riot.” A Black Lives Matter activist from Utah, Sullivan is the founder of Insurgence USA, which was “started in 2020 in response to the George Floyd tragedy.” The staged George Floyd tragedy, that is, which has been shown many times over to have been faked. Sullivan spoke at a rally in Washington DC in August 2020, where he yelled “it’s time for revolution” and “rip Trump outta that office right over there.”
The media, however, calls Sullivan “a civil rights activist” who was in the Capitol on January 6 only as a reporter. He has now been arrested after bragging about posing as a Trump supporter and breaking a window in the building. In a video exposé by The Gateway Pundit, Sullivan is shown with CNN/NPR reporter Jade Sacker, who took part in the staged raid on the Capitol. This important video has now been removed from YouTube and Rumble but can be seen at BitChute (after signing in) and 153News.net.

Leftists, Democrats, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter are not front and center in media coverage, however. Instead, we learn that “suspected white supremacists,” military and ex-military, police personnel, firefighters, “Pro-Trump extremists,” and “people on a terrorist watch list” were among the “mob that stormed the Capitol.” Thus the rationale for the thousands of National Guard troops that have descended on Washington DC, to “bolster security” for the January 20 inauguration.
The staged death of Ashli Babbitt
Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran and alleged Trump supporter, was captured on video as she tried to climb through a glass panel in a door inside the Capitol building, when a shot rang out and she fell backwards to the floor. Extensive footage, posted by several bystanders including Jayden X, shows her lying on the ground, next to a stone pillar, with blood pouring out of her mouth. She was reportedly shot in the neck (or the chest) by a gunman on the other side of the door, said to be Capitol Police but not yet identified or charged with a crime.

The circumstances look suspicious, with many unlikely “Trump supporters” gathered at the scene and riot police arriving via the stairs but doing nothing to apprehend the gunman. The crowd of onlookers seems curiously unaffected by the presence of an “active shooter” (as one calls out) despite the possibility that they themselves would have been in danger.

One young man, Thomas Baranyi, stands right next to the door, his back to the shooter, busy on his phone. That man, coincidentally, was found later by a reporter from a CBS affiliate and interviewed about Babbitt’s death. What are the chances? The interview has since circulated online and forms the basis for the official story of the shooting incident. Baranyi holds up his hand for the reporter, showing what he says is the blood of Ashli Babbitt, which he somehow chose to preserve in situ. He has since been arrested by the FBI, who tracked him down from the interview.

Close analysis of the footage shows that Ashli Babbitt cannot have been shot by the man with the gun shown in the videos. Great care was taken to photograph the gunman on the other side of the door, who is aiming in the direction of Babbitt. Before shooting, however, he moves the gun to his left, away from his target, and shoots straight ahead, with his gun level.

Moreover, Babbitt is high off the ground, having climbed into the window. Even if the man had shot before he moved the gun away, he would have hit her in the leg, not the neck. As she fell, she was protected from the stone pillar and cushioned by her backpack.

Curiously, and again coincidentally, not only is John Sullivan (Jayden X) the source of most of this footage, he himself appears in an interview at the scene conducted by InfoWars. He was interviewed later by Anderson Cooper on CNN along with Jade Sacker, retailing the official story. As with the testimony of Thomas Baranyi, John Sullivan’s story aligns closely with the official narrative – much like the eye witnesses on 9/11 who are in on the scam and report seeing planes flying into the buildings for a gullible TV audience.
John Sullivan at the scene of Ashli Babbitt’s shooting, interviewed by InfoWars: “She got shot right here in the neck…I have the video of the guy with the gun.”
The aftermath is equally anomalous. The riot police behave strangely, milling around the fallen Ashli Babbitt, telling everyone to get back, but making no effort to protect the crowd or apprehend the gunman. One of the “rioters” walks past the police, down the stairs, and changes his clothes, assuming a new identity – one of many details indicating a coordinated effort by the various players in this drama.
There was very little blood at the scene, considering that Babbitt was supposedly shot in the neck. In fact, she bit on a fake blood capsule, producing the bright red “blood” seen running from her mouth in the videos. A photo of the nearly spotless area shows “blood…seen on the floor after a woman was shot and killed inside the Capitol,” according to the Daily Mail.

Finally, Babbitt was brought out on a stretcher, as captured by the news media, with the same bright “blood” on her face but now augmented. Her body was not covered but exposed for the cameras, and the paramedics show no particular urgency in getting her to an ambulance. This pre-planned, scripted event involved many players, and Ashli Babbitt, the star of the show, was a highly skilled actor.

Meanwhile, four other people are supposed to have died as a result of the Capitol “riots,” including Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who allegedly was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher. Few details are available on Sicknick, as opposed to the large amount of data on Babbitt. He supposedly “returned to his division office and collapsed,” according to the Capitol Police. “He was taken to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.” This lack of information notwithstanding, Sicknick has become a cause célèbre, with hundreds of police officers attending his funeral. And Sicknick has a GoFundMe page that has raised over $700,000 to date.
Of the three other victims, Kevin Greeson, alleged Trump supporter and longtime Democrat, died of a heart attack “in the midst of the excitement,” Rosanne Boyland collapsed while in the Capitol rotunda, and Benjamin Philips died of a stroke. Sicknick himself has been said to have died of “a medical condition.”
So did anyone actually die as a result of the “mob riots” and “violent insurrection”? It looks like Nobody Died, as in so many staged psyops of the past decade.
The security forces stand down
Much hand-wringing has occurred in the mainstream media over the alleged mistakes and oversights that left the Capitol building vulnerable to the “mob.” The Capitol Police were strangely unprepared for the Trump rally, although they knew well in advance about the march to the Capitol. In addition, John Sullivan and friends had scheduled a “Dump Trump for Good” rally at the Washington Monument on January 6 at 11 am.
Nothing but flimsy bike-rack barricades protected the Capitol building, and these were quickly dispensed with by the “rioters,” who seem to have been let into the site by the very police who were tasked with defending it. The officers stepped back or were pushed aside with no apparent means of stopping the incursions.

One week before the rally, Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser asked for support from the DC National Guard in support of the Metropolitan Police, but the Capitol Police, responsible for Capitol Hill, did not follow suit. The US Department of Defense reached out to the Capitol Police to see if they wanted support, but they declined. According to the timeline released, the chief of the Capitol Police finally requested help from the DC National Guard only at 1:49 pm on January 6. The Guard then made an emergency deployment, which took hours to complete.
The city looked much different on January 6, 2021, than it did on June 2, 2020, when troops were called out to protect the Lincoln Memorial during a Black Lives Matter “peaceful protest” over the staged death of George Floyd. Obviously, the Capitol could have been better protected if the authorities had wished to step in.

Once inside the building, protesters were courteously admitted and ushered through the halls, allowed to pose with statues, enter private offices, and sit in Mike Pence’s Senate chair and at Nancy Pelosi’s desk. Guards were shown conferring with and even posing for selfies with the “rioters.” This was a planned event, an inside job, organized and funded by the same forces that have called for Trump’s removal from the White House.

The media is casting the standdown in a different light, however, suggesting that police had been caught unawares or had colluded with Trump supporters. Democrat Representative Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey has called for an investigation into suspicious access to the Capitol building on January 5, as though Congressional staff had aided and abetted the “Trump mob” by giving “outside groups” pre-event tours so they could plan their “riot.”
All this being the case, what purpose did the staged “siege of the Capitol” serve? Most obviously, it moved the Congress to expedite the certification of the election results, without any further investigation into the obvious fraud, although half the country has called for it. Trump laid out extensive evidence that the election was stolen in his speech at the Ellipse on January 6. The “riot” at the Capitol directed attention away from “Stop the Steal” and toward protecting “the most sacred space in our Republic” – even though it was left unprotected on purpose.
With the election certified, Joe Biden, who lost in a landslide, was officially canonized as President-Elect, with his inauguration set for January 20. Thereupon, 20,000 National Guard troops were mobilized, erecting roadblocks and fences in downtown DC and sleeping en masse on the floors of the Capitol. America has become a rank security state, and Washington DC is an armed camp with its own Green Zone. Warnings of more “Trump-fueled right-wing violence” have been circulated, with threats of civil war.

The internet purge continues, ostensibly to protect us from “violent content,” with heads of social media platforms more powerful than the President of the United States. Trump supporters are losing their jobs, Democrats in Congress are calling for blacklists and re-education centers, and ordinary Americans are branded “domestic terrorists” that must be tracked and surveilled.
And COVID restrictions are still in place to protect us from the Plandemic, which is nothing more than the flu. We are primed to enter The Great Reset, which the “storming of the Capitol” has facilitated. It is those participating in the stolen election, the destruction of the Constitution, the move toward world government, and the “siege” in DC who will benefit if the plan succeeds.
Many are wondering how Trump, a master strategist, fell into this obvious trap. Why did he call his supporters to DC on January 6 for the “Save America” rally – and direct them to the Capitol, into the heart of the “insurrection”? For those who believe that he is authentic, his speech shows that he hoped the election would not be certified:
“All Vice President Pence has to do is send it back to the states to recertify, and we become President, and you are the happiest people…Mike Pence has to agree to send it back.”
For those more skeptical, perhaps Trump’s rally was part of the deal.
