Jan 6 Video Shows Undercover DC Cops Incited Rioters

ANALYSIS – In the latest evidence that the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol was not exactly as it was portrayed by partisan Democrats and the establishment media, a sealed video shows D.C. undercover Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers acting as provocateurs.

And a federal prosecutor has admitted they did so but is still fighting in court to keep the video evidence sealed or ‘masked.’

Videos from Jan. 6, still hidden under court seal, have become an increasingly hot topic, especially as we learn more about the involvement of multiple FBI informants in the riot.

One of the Jan. 6 defendants, William Pope of Topeka, Kansas, filed a motion on Feb. 21 to remove the court seal on one video.

The undercover video, part of which was posted on Rumble, shows three members of the MPD’s Electronic Surveillance Unit (ESU) approach the Capitol’s northwest steps.

The Epoch Times (ET) reports:

Nearly 30 members of the Electronic Surveillance Unit were assigned to duty on Jan. 6, some of whom were gathering evidence on crowd activity. Members wore special bands on their left wrists to identify themselves as part of the Electronic Surveillance Unit, according to the MPD’s 96-page Jan. 6 action plan.

ET quotes undercover MPD ESU officers chanting or yelling terms of encouragement and incitement at protesters. These included:

Officer 1 repeatedly joined in chants of “Drain the swamp!” and “Our house! Our house! Our house!”

“This is amazing,” Officer 2 said. Officer 1, who was shooting the GoPro video, replied, “Yeah, I’ve never seen anything like this.”

Officer 1 encouraged the crowd to move up the stairs with repeated shouts, “Keep going! Keep going!” and “Keep going, keep going, come on!”

“This video clearly evidences undercover law enforcement officers urging the crowds to advance up the stairs and scaffolding towards the Capitol on January 6,” Pope wrote in an earlier case filing.

“The officer clearly incited that area, and we still don’t have video from all other undercover MPD,” said Pope.

“And,” Pope added to ET, “as the numerous informants in the Proud Boys trial demonstrates, we are only just beginning to scratch the surface on FBI involvement.”

In a March 24 filing before U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras, however, prosecutors asked the court to keep video footage shot by the officers under court seal.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kelly Moran argued against unsealing closed-circuit television (CCTV) security video, saying it could put officers at risk.

“There are very specific and highly worrisome risks associated with the specific videos the defendant seeks to share en masse,” she wrote.

Moran also accused Pope of attempting “to try his case in the media rather than in a court of law …”

But trying the Jan. 6 rioters in the media has been the government’s goal all along. And now it’s time to finally see the other side of the story.

And this side could be very damaging to those blindly pushing the ‘insurrection’ narrative.

At one point in the video, one of the undercover officers stated, “Someone’s going to get shot.”

Another video reportedly shows Officer 2 and Officer 3 walking behind the late Ashli Babbitt on the northwest steps of the Capitol.

An hour later, Babbitt, a former Air Force Security Forces officer who was unarmed and peaceful, was shot and died at the entry of the Speaker’s Lobby by a Capitol Police Lieutenant.

Babbitt was the only person directly killed in the violence at the Capitol.

Hunter Biden Used FBI Mole to Tip Off Chinese Partners of Investigation: Israeli Source


ANALYSIS – The establishment media continues to mostly ignore the constant drip of information on the Biden family’s deep China ties and corruption. But the evidence keeps coming in. 

Now, an explosive claim by an Israeli source says Hunter Biden used an FBI mole named ‘One-Eye’ to tip off his Chinese business partners that they were being investigated.

The high-level Israeli had his own dealings with Hunter’s Chinese partners.

But this one FBI informant Hunter used is only part of the bigger story.

The New York Post reports:

The House Oversight Committee is investigating the explosive claims by Dr. Gal Luft, a former Israel Defense Forces lieutenant colonel with deep intelligence ties in Washington and Beijing, who says he was arrested to stop him from revealing what he knows about the Biden family and FBI corruption — details he told the Department of Justice in 2019, which he says it ignored.

And the claims sound quite plausible. 

Luft is just anyone. 

He is a respected intelligence expert in DC, where he runs the Institute for Analysis of Global Security, a think tank, with former CIA Director James Woolsey and former national security adviser Robert McFarlane as advisers.

The Israeli defense expert reportedly contacted the Department of Justice (DOJ) and federal investigators flew to Brussels to interview him between March 28 and 29, 2019.

This was less than four weeks before Joe Biden announced he was running for president.

Luft never heard from the DOJ again.

And now Luft has been arrested in Cypress and is being detained in Israel as he fights extradition to the United States. He is being charged with ‘gunrunning’ by the Biden Justice Department.

Luft says the charges of arms trafficking to China and Libya, and violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act are trumped-up to discredit him and keep him quiet.

The Jerusalem Post quotes Luft’s attorney in Israel, Mordechai Tzivin as saying Luft’s arrest was “a good way to shut him up because he knows a lot of information on Hunter.

And some of this information will help the GOP-led House better grasp the enormity of the Biden corruption.

The Post continues:

Through his American lawyer, Robert Henoch, Luft said he tried four years ago to inform the DOJ that Chinese state-controlled energy company CEFC had paid $100,000 a month to President Biden’s son Hunter and $65,000 to Joe’s brother Jim, in exchange for their FBI connections and use of the Biden name to promote China’s Belt and Road Initiative around the world.

Luft reportedly learned about the corrupt scheme through his own relationship with Hunter’s Chinese business partners, Patrick Ho and Ye Jianming, the chairman of CEFC.

According to Henoch, Ye confided to Luft that Hunter had an informant in the FBI “or formerly of the bureau, extremely well placed, who they paid lots of money to [provide] sealed law enforcement information.” 

“The DOJ had this information in March 2019 and did nothing,” Henoch said.

The attorney is currently in Israel where he is fighting Luft’s extradition to the United States.

The Post adds:

The House Oversight Committee released bank statements last week, showing an additional $1,065,000 was funneled from a Chinese company affiliated with CEFC to Hunter, Jim, and Hallie Biden, Hunter’s former lover, and widow of his late brother, Beau. The payments were made in increments over three months through Biden associate Rob Walker, whose wife, Betsy, had been personal assistant to then-second lady Jill Biden.

Luft’s U.S. attorney concluded: “Congress has the Biden bank records but it doesn’t know the reason for the payments. Now it does. The information that the whistleblower Dr. Luft gave the DOJ four years ago is the missing link for the reason behind the China-Biden money transfers. Clearly, this is explosive stuff.”

Explosive stuff indeed. Now when will the establishment media begin reporting on all this?

Is Mexico’s President Working With US To Stop Deadly Fentanyl Wave?

ANALYSIS – Maybe the realistic threat of the U.S. taking some sort of limited military action against the Mexican drug cartels is having an effect on Mexico’s socialist president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO).

Because Joe Biden’s administration is certainly not the reason — more likely though, this is just wishful thinking and AMLO, as the president is better known, is just pretending to play nice.

Still, AMLO now appears to be quietly meeting with American lawmakers on security and drug policy.

This, after several prominent GOP lawmakers recently called for the authority to use military force against the drug cartels, as part of the broader battle to protect our borders.

A massive wave of illegal Fentanyl is today killing thousands of young Americans each month (over 100,000 in a year) thanks to the Mexican drug cartels which control parts of the border.

The deadly drug is made in Mexico with precursor chemicals shipped from China.

These cartels along the border also recently kidnapped and murdered several Americans who legally crossed the border into Mexico. Others have disappeared. (RELATED: Mexican Drug Cartels Worried About GOP Calls To Use American Military Against Them)

Earlier AMLO delivered insulting lectures blaming the U.S. for the fentanyl overdose crisis because American families don’t hug their kids enough. (RELATED: Mexican President Says Mexico Is Safer Than US, But Murder Rate Is 4x Higher)

And this week, AMLO sent his foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, to Washington, D.C., to mobilize Mexico’s 52 consulates, the most foreign consulates in the U.S., to launch a nationwide information campaign “in defense of our country,” he said, following “unacceptable attacks” by GOP legislators.

In what I called foreign election interference, AMLO also called on Mexican Americans and U.S. Hispanics to vote against Republicans.

But now a bipartisan delegation of U.S. lawmakers met with AMLO over the weekend.

Six Republicans and five Democrats met with the Mexican president.

And they report he told them he would work with China to stop their shipments of fentanyl precursors that are brought into Mexico and processed before being smuggled into the United States.

According to their press release, Senator John Cornyn, R-Texas, a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees, led the congressional delegation (CODEL) which returned to the U.S. Monday afternoon.

This month, Cornyn visited the U.S.-Mexican border and called on Joe Biden to enforce existing U.S. immigration laws.

In addition to their meeting with AMLO, the group also met with intelligence, drug enforcement and government officials in Mexico.

Senators Chris Coons, D-Del., Jerry Moran, R-Kan., Chris Murphy, D-Conn., Mike Lee, R-Utah, Kyrsten Sinema, I-Ariz., Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., and Peter Welch, D-Vt., along with Representatives Tony Gonzales (TX-23), Henry Cuellar (TX-28), Veronica Escobar (TX-16) and Maria Salazar (FL-27) rounded out the rest of the delegation.

Their press release stated that they received:

…briefings from U.S. intelligence officials, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Ken Salazar on the United States’ security posture with regards to Mexico, recent killings of Americans in the country, efforts to stop drug trafficking, and illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border. The delegation shared their concerns with Mexico’s handling of these issues with President López Obrador and members of his administration.

“One of the interesting parts is he agreed to meet with China on how they could prevent getting some of the raw materials, the precursors, from China,” Rep. Tony Gonzales, R-Texas, told The Hill.

“So that in itself acknowledges the fact that China is sending these things through, mainly through Manzanillo and some of the ports on that side of Mexico.”

However, the threats of U.S. military action from GOP lawmakers have also helped AMLO whip the country into a nationalistic frenzy. And I trust his actions more than his words.

Potential Trump Arrest a ‘Manufactured Circus’ by ‘Weaponized’ Prosecutor

ANALYSIS – Former President Donald Trump announced on his Truth Social media Saturday that he was going to be arrested on Tuesday, March 21. 

He also urged his supporters to protest.

So far no other news media has confirmed his claim and Trump remains untouched.

It appears that this announcement citing illegal leaks in the Manhattan DA’s office was Trump’s successful attempt to get ahead of the story.

In part, he wanted to mobilize the GOP.

Still, if or when, this does happen, an arrest of a former president, and current candidate, would be an unprecedented event in U.S. history.

It would look like third-world criminalization of politics, and can only further alienate many of the 70 million Americans who voted for Trump in 2020.

Most Republicans will see it as a politicized witch hunt. It would also only deepens the belief that there continues to be a years-long conspiracy to bring down Trump.

It will seem that the Russia collusion hoax, the ‘resistance’ inside and outside of government, lawsuits, and two highly partisan, manufactured, and failed, impeachments against Trump by then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi didn’t suffice.

Provoking a reaction from potential GOP primary opponents was also a Trump goal. 

And Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has not announced he is running for president, had a few things to say about the issue, even while claiming he wasn’t “going to be involved.”

DeSantis called the whole prosecution a ‘manufactured circus.’

The conservative governor focused on how the George Soros-backed New York City prosecutor Alvin L. Bragg, has seen major crime skyrocket in Manhattan while focusing on a relatively petty alleged crime to go after the former president.

The petty prosecution is over alleged hush money payments to adult performer Stormy Daniels to, as DeSantis said dismissively, “secure silence over some type of alleged affair.”

But it’s not even about the alleged payments made on his behalf by his then-attorney Michael Cohen (which wouldn’t be too different from the numerous illicit ways Bill Clinton tried to hide his many affairs while in office from the public. 

This case is expected to actually focus on Trump’s role in recording the reimbursements he made to Cohen in the internal records of his company, the Trump Organization, which were entered as “legal expenses.”

That’s even pettier. The DA calls it “fraud.” Others might call it “sloppy bookkeeping.”

According to the Epoch Times (ET), DeSantis said:

We are not involved in this. We won’t be involved in this. I have no interest in getting involved in some kind of manufactured circus by a Soros-funded DA. He’s trying to do a political spectacle. He’s trying to virtue signal for his base.

He added: “I can’t spend my time worrying about things of that nature. So, we’re not going to be involved in it in any way.”

Well, DeSantis is correct, even if he is getting somewhat “involved.”

And DeSantis does know a thing or two about ideologically motivated, Soros-backed prosecutors.

As ET reports:

DeSantis removed Hillsborough County District Attorney Andrew Warren from office last year for stating he wouldn’t prosecute certain crimes. DeSantis’s action has so far survived a review by a federal judge.

DeSantis added: “He [Bragg] is a Soros-funded prosecutor and, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety.”

The governor continued: “He has downgraded over 50 percent of felonies to misdemeanors. He says he doesn’t want to even have jail time for the vast majority of crimes. And what we’ve seen in Manhattan is, we’ve seen the crime rate go up and we’ve seen citizens become less safe,” DeSantis said.

But it’s not just DeSantis who sees this as a politically motivated vendetta that could cause far more harm to the American system than good. The New York Times reported that some Democrats and legal experts have their own doubts as well:

Charging former President Donald J. Trump in connection with a hush-money payment to a porn star would catapult Mr. Bragg onto the national stage. Already he faces second-guessing, even from putative allies, about the strength of the case and the wisdom of bringing it. 

The Times continued:

…Bragg has been in a difficult situation. Rebecca Roiphe, a professor at New York Law School and a former prosecutor in Manhattan, said that even though investigators do not target individuals for political reasons, politics does come into play in that “there is always a question of whether it is [in] the public interest to bring a certain charge or not.”

If he does not bring a case even though there is clear evidence to prove it, Ms. Roiphe suggested, he could violate the longstanding principle that no person is above the law. But if he does indict Mr. Trump, who has begun a third presidential campaign, the choice could also be “incredibly destabilizing and harmful,” Ms. Roiphe said.

Meanwhile, many Republicans will be getting very “involved” in this potential outrage. Speaker of the House, Rep. Kevin McCarthy has already accused Bragg of “abusing his office to target President Trump.”

He also is threatening to defund Bragg and is investigating whether federal funds were used by Bragg to pursue Trump.
