The initial charges against those few who entered the Capitol during the Trump rally were “entering a restricted building without permission and engaging in disorderly conduct while inside.” This charge does not carry sufficient punishment for the kind of example the Establishment intends to make of Trump supporters.

Michael Sherwin, the acting U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, sees a chance for his 15 minutes of fame. He announced in a press conference that he has built a team of national security attorneys to create sedition and conspiracy charges against Trump “rioters who stormed the Capitol.”

Note that excessive language accompanies excessive charges. Whether those who got into the Capitol were let in or broke in, there was no “storming,” and certainly no conspiracy to commit sedition. Sherwin says that he is “treating this just like a significant international counterterrorism or counterintelligence operation.”

Even the videos shown on anti-Trump news sites, such as The Hill, show the “insurrectionists” in the Capitol walking peacefully and keeping within the roped lane. How is this violent insurrection? There are videos making the rounds that show Trump supporters restraining a man who is trying to break a window in the Capitol. It is clear that the Trump supporters regard the person as an Antifa member.

In any demonstration there will be nutcases and provocateurs. To define a peaceful demonstration by the acts of a few is dishonest. Remember, the presstitutes repeatedly called the Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots that looted and burned business areas of Minneapolis, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Atlanta and other cities “peaceful protests.” When the presstitutes had to acknowledge that there was violence, they blamed it on Trump supporters or white supremacists who had allegedly infiltrated the peaceful protests.

Infiltration does seem to have happened to Trump supporters at the Capitol. According to a report by a person present at the Capitol to film the event that was sent to Professor Mark Crispin Miller at New York University, agitators suddenly appeared with bull horns and provoked Trump supporters to rush up the steps at the back of the Capitol. The relatively few who entered the Capitol apparently entered from the front. Some reports say they were allowed in. Here is the account of the cameraman that I reported on January 7:

“我今天在华盛顿特区拍摄特朗普集会和相关事件。 我还看到了你关于今晚国会大厦示威的帖子。 也许这个简短的帐户将帮助您以小的方式评估其他人在说什么。

“在人群出现之前,我也在国会大厦,将我的相机安装在国会大厦后部周边的石墙上(面向宪法大道的后方)。 然后我等待特朗普总统的演讲结束,等待支持者沿着宪法大道步行到国会大厦。 我所在的确切位置是支持者在抛开第一道国会大厦外围屏障的一部分后首先冲向国会大厦后面的斜坡。 支持者大致聚集在国会大厦后部的中央,但随着人群越来越多,一个圆圈开始围绕周边扩大。 我不知道越来越多的人群打算冲向国会大厦。

“在一大群人出现在外围后,一个可能是 30 多岁或 40 多岁的男子出现了,他在人群面前迅速向左踱步,然后向右走,基本上开始向人群投掷侮辱,挑战他们的政治智慧。 他谴责人群认为国会议员会认真对待他们的出席。 (很难说他错了,不管他是谁)。 我记不得他说的具体内容了,但在很短的时间里,他和支持者进行了一场大喊大叫,顿时支持者们推开了第一道屏障,冲向了国会大厦的后方。 外围北部边缘的其他人也纷纷效仿。 但第一次冲刺就在国会大厦后面的中心。 我跟着冲到国会大厦后面台阶的底部,并从内围石墙的顶部再次开始拍摄。

“看起来,警察对这种匆忙感到有些惊讶,这让支持者有机会爬上台阶。 在警察逮捕他们之前,一两个人甚至走到了通往国会大厦南侧脚手架的台阶上。 这时候,五十个人已经爬到了面对国会大厦的高大钢塔结构的顶部。 然后,警察在国会大厦台阶脚下的新屏障外围竖立并排成一列。 国会大厦台阶顶部的警察将步枪瞄准人群(也许是橡皮子弹步枪,我不知道)。 人群开始与警察发生争执,并用力推向新的屏障。 警察不时向直接压在屏障上的男子喷洒催泪瓦斯,使他们撤退。 “与此同时,塔顶的人开始召集人群挑战新的障碍(在牛角上方),填补障碍和我用作拍摄有利位置的石墙之间的任何空隙。 另一名男子在我面前立即用牛角向人群工作,并鼓励支持者爬过内围石墙(我的拍摄有利位置),并在国会大厦后台阶底部的新屏障上制造一堵压力墙.

“大约 30 分钟到一个小时后,我跌落到石墙底部重新加载相机,但突然障碍物让位,警察试图通过向石墙和障碍物之间的区域发射催泪瓦斯来加固它。 我自己也被毒气击中,为了呼吸而挣扎着翻过石墙。 毒气使许多人群陷入恐慌。 当两个女人开始拼命拉我的外套后背,将自己拉上并越过中等高的墙壁撤退时,我几乎被踩踏了。

“在第二个外围屏障让路后,拿着牛角的人开始非常努力地工作,让特朗普的支持者填满国会大厦的台阶和两侧的脚手架。 在这一点上,为了鼓励人们爬上国会大厦台阶,长着牛角的人不时重复的呼吁是“这不是集会;这不是集会; 这是真的。” 另一个常见的电话是“现在或永远不会”。 经过大约两个小时的努力,充满了这种性质的牛角声,整个国会大厦的后面都挤满了特朗普的支持者,国会大厦的整个正面都覆盖着大大小小的特朗普横幅、美国国旗和各种其他类型的旗帜和横幅。

“在国会大厦后面的匆忙之后的某个时候,人们显然能够从前面进入国会大厦本身。 但我没有看到任何在前面或国会大厦里面的东西。

“一个显然是自己进入国会大厦的明显善意的特朗普支持者正在情绪激动和愤怒地告诉其他人(包括某种形式的新闻代表,甚至是外国新闻记者),他目睹了国会大厦内有人鼓励暴力,他强烈怀疑这不是合法的特朗普的支持者(显然是因为该男子在他的服装上没有表现出任何特朗普支持的迹象)。 我没有密切关注他的说法(例如鼓励暴力的确切说法),因为自然我还没有阅读你的帖子,而且我没有想到专业的局外人可能会在煽动特定的暴力行为中发挥作用为抹黑事件而采取行动。

“我无意中听到一位特朗普支持者(他本人也跟随国会大厦的匆忙)大声说,“我带了很多其他人参加这次集会,但我们没有为此签字”,因为他眼睁睁地看着事情升级。

“Still, from my seat, I would say that large numbers of very legitimate Trump supporters felt that it was their patriotic duty to occupy the Capitol in light of their unshakable beliefs that (1) the 2020 election was a fraud, (2) that the vast majority of the members of congress are corrupt and compromised, and (3) that the country is in the throes of what they consider a “communist” takeover (although many use the expression “communism” as a synonym for “totalitarianism”). They are also convinced that the virus narrative is a fraud and an essential part of an effort to undermine the Constitution –in particular the Bill of Rights. They have a very real fear that the country and the very conception of any culture of liberty is on the verge of an irreparable collapse. For most (if not a very large majority) rushing the Capitol was a desperate eleventh hour act of patriotism –even of the order of the revolution that created our nation. Some Trump supporters sang the Star Spangled Banner and other patriotic songs as others climbed the Capitol steps. They also demonstrated a measure of respect for the Capitol itself. I saw no attempt by anyone to deface the Capitol simply for the sake of defacing it.

“无可争议的妥协媒体称这一事件为骚乱。 但从我所见所闻来看,这充其量确实是一种粗暴和故意误导的过度简化。 至少从支持者的角度来看,如果他们的国会大厦事件是一场骚乱,那么波士顿倾茶事件也是如此。 在我看来,一些专业的帮助(非常了解深刻的情绪)可能来自某个地方,以确保聚会的举行。”

It was a riot and violent and an insurrection, because that is what the Establishment wants it to be. Overstating what happened turns it into a weapon that can be used against Trump and his supporters as Acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin intends to do.

If Sherwin were to conduct a real investigation, he would probably find that the organized plan he is looking for was an Antifa plan or a plan of some Establishment group to use provocateurs to stampede rally attendees into some action that would discredit Trump and the rally. Of course, this is nothing that Sherwin wants to find.

The violent looters who rampaged through American cities have not been held accountable. Yet the US Justice Department is intent on framing people protesting what they believe was a stolen election as “insurrectionists” with a conspiracy of sedition. If Sherwin and the Establishment he serves had any judgment, they would not throw gasoline on a fire unless they want a bigger fire. It seems that a bigger fire is what they do want.

A bigger fire would help the new domestic terrorism bill that criminalizes dissent. Under this bill, those who challenge Establishment explanations could find themselves charged with terrorism. Law is what prosecutors establish it to be. What is terrorism becomes a subjective judgment and is whatever a prosecutor says it is.

There was no insurrection on January 6, which is puzzling in a way. If tens of millions of Americans believe that their democracy is threatened by a stolen election and nothing was being done about it, who would be surprised if there was an insurrection? It seems to me that everyone but the Establishment and its minons would support such an insurrection.

To charge Trump supporters for something that did not happen, while not charging Antifa for what did happen, is the best way to split the population. Why does Michael Sherwin want to splint the American population?
