The Metropolitan Police Department is expected to ramp up its presence for the upcoming ‘Justice for J6‘ rally on the grounds of the capitol. On September 18, protesters will gather on the capitol grounds in defense of the rights of those jailed in connection with the events that took place on January 6.
The event, planned by Look Ahead America, is expected to be peaceful as several thousand people are set to attend. Leaders of the organizing group have implored attendees to be mindful and respectful when at the event, also urging them to remember the purpose behind the rally.
Matt Braynard, the leader of Look Ahead America, previously served as a a campaign staffer for 45th President Donald Trump. He told the media that he has received numerous death threats, particularly from left-leaning activists.
“Despite all of this entirely peaceful operation by us, I’m being bombarded with death threats and threats of violence,” he explained. “So, all the violence happening here is exclusively coming from the left, all the threats of real violence that we’re seeing here.”
Nonetheless, Braynard has invited those who plan to attend the event to make signs that call for justice in regards to those who he referred to as “political prisoners” and “patriots.”
“The small handful who so far have been credibly charged with violence, they are due a fair hearing,” he stated. ” I don’t think that that’s happening for them. They’re still having the deck stacked against them and in many cases, those who have been accused of violence have had the government slow walk evidence and say that they may not even be able to present the evidence for another year.”
After months of blustering authoritarian bullshit, it looks like the Feds have to walk back their tough talk:
……a funny thing happened on the way to the insurrection gulag; the overwhelming number of cases consist only of low-level offenses. That is not what Michael Sherwin, the head prosecutor handling the first few months of the Capitol breach probe, promised one week after the protest. “The initial charges we’re filing, these misdemeanors, these are only the beginning,” Sherwin said at a January 12 press conference. “We’re looking at serious felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy.”
Yet, in spite of Twitter’s best efforts, no one so far has been charged with insurrection or sedition; the best the government can do is file hard-to-prove charges of obstruction of an official proceeding or conspiracy, both felonies.
The Justice Department set expectations extremely high early on. Revenge against Americans who dared to protest the election of Joe Biden would come fast and fierce, the public was assured. Attorney General Merrick Garland promised the investigation into January 6, which he compares to the Oklahoma City bombing, would be his top priority. And when FBI Director Chris Wray designated January 6 an act of “domestic terrorism,” Trump haters smelled blood in the water.
……The Justice Department now seems to be prepping the ground for a major letdown. “The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result,” Reuters reported August 20. Nearly all of the cases, four former and current law enforcement officials said, are “one-offs” while roughly five percent are associated with so-called militia groups.
“FBI investigators did find that cells of protesters, including followers of the far-right Oath Keepers and Proud Boys groups, had aimed to break into the Capitol. But they found no evidence that the groups had serious plans about what to do if they made it inside,” the unnamed sources told Reuters.
Of course, raiding people’s homes and concocting ludicrous charges such as “parading, picketing, or demonstrating” in the Capitol is the easy part. Proving these cases in court is much more difficult, even as Obama-appointed Beltway judges who have shown no mercy for the accused sit in judgment.
……defense attorneys also are pushing back on the government’s obstruction charges, levied against at least 200 defendants.
Earlier this month, Judge Randolph Moss warned prosecutors they faced a “constitutional vagueness problem” in applying the obstruction charge to January 6. Moss asked how the obstruction felony, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, is different from the other misdemeanor charges that only allow for up to six months in jail. “Unless we can tell the public where that line is, there’s a problem.”
Now if the FBI would only admit their part in it.
The FBI framed the 6 January MAGA protesters by inserting undercover agents and informants in the crowd to encourage violence. It backfired, but that’s not stopping the Feds from persecuting people who simply wandered the hallways, stood outside the building, and peacefully protested.
The FBI needs to be dismantled from the top down. The criminal malfeasants in the agency should be indicted and prosecuted. We know that won’t happen because agencies weaponized by Dem regimes trample all over the Constitution while Congress does nothing. All the hot air and indignation during oversight hearings are a dog and pony show.
The protesters being held without due process are political prisoners. Their only crime was to demand accountability from the hallowed halls of corruption.
On the other hand, Antifa/BLM goons responsible for murder and the destruction of entire neighborhood businesses, police stations, and courthouses, have skated out of legal consequences for their crimes. The Feds refuse to prosecute.
The Dems have created a system of bullying and persecution of political opponents. This shit usually happens in Communist countries and Banana Republics.
Now it’s happening here.
