There was one main story yesterday, and it seemed like everyone had it. Reuters claims an Exclusive: FBI finds scant evidence U.S. Capitol attack was coordinated
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, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.Funny they should mention those names, almost like they were hoping to pin this on them. Lot's of acknowledgements and responses; mostly with the similar titles, Capt. Ed at Hot Hair Reuters: FBI finding "scant evidence" of any coordination behind January 6 riot , "“Scant” in this case means almost none, especially for any particular point other than just to riot." At Da Wire, FBI Finds ‘Scant Evidence’ That January 6 Riot Was ‘Result Of Organized Plot To Overturn’ Election. PM, FBI finds 'scant evidence' that Jan. 6 Capitol riot was 'centrally coordinated'. By way of the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 08.20.21, Steven Hayward at Power Line, Breaking: The Left’s January 6 Narrative Just Went Poof—FBI, "As with the Muller report on the 2016 election, don’t expect the left, and the media, to give up on their “insurrection” narrative easily" and also The Geller Report: FBI Finally Admits “Scant Evidence” The 1/6 Capitol Attack Was Coordinated. I do want to highlight one article, from the conspiracy minded sundance at CTH, who looks the gift horse straight in the chops, FBI Starts Cover Story to Cloud Their Involvement in January 6th Events – Now Claim No Evidence of Coordination For J6 Insurrection. It's true; if they had people inside conspiracies, and they took them to trial on that, it could be revealed in court, and that wouldn't be a good look for the FBI:
Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations.
"Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases," said a former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. "Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages."
Glenn Greenwald previously wrote a solid outline on Substack worth reading (excerpt):
Greenwald – […] “If the FBI had advanced knowledge of what was being plotted yet did nothing to stop the attack, it raises numerous possibilities about why that is. It could be that they just had yet another “intelligence failure” of the kind that they claimed caused them to miss the 9/11 attack and therefore need massive new surveillance authorities, budget increases, and new Patriot-Act-type laws to fix it.Given the history of the FBI, I think we can all agree on the most likely scenario. The FBI was deeply involved in orchestrating the events on January 6th, and the FBI would now like to see any inquiry into any process of “coordination” for those events quickly stopped. Hence, today the FBI proclaims there was no evidence of coordination.
It could be that they allowed the riot to happen because they did not take it seriously enough or because some of them supported the cause behind it, or because they realized that there would be benefits to the security state if it happened.
Or it could be that they were using those operatives under their control to plot with, direct, and drive the attack — as they have done so many times in the past — and allowed it to happen out of either negligence or intent.” (continue reading)
Move along, move along… no coordination… don’t investigate the FBI folks… move along.
And the investigations go on; Kevin Downey Jr at PJ Media, FBI Raids Home of Couple Accused of January 6 Capitol Trespassing, Aims Gun at Their Child, Father Claims That was damn brave of them.
Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, (FBI) raided a farm near Covington, Ga., looking for a husband-and-wife team accused of walking into the Capitol on January 6. The couple insists they didn’t enter the building and claims the FBI aimed a gun with a laser sight at their 11-year-old daughter. Forty FBI agents, reportedly arriving in four armored vehicles, moved in on the family’s farm at 7 a.m. on August 10.
The FBI refused to provide comment when contacted by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The ultimate false flag would be an assassination of Biden by a so-called “white supremacist” or at least a self-declared member of the far-right. This would give the Deep State the excuse to enact martial law against Americans in general, but against a very specific type of American in reality – those stubborn whites who just refuse to get with the program and roll over and die. Either they didn’t die in the military, nor by their own hand from PTSD, nor from the created opioid epidemic, and now the bastards won’t take the poison jab. So set them up for a big false flag and then take away their guns. As a start.
To all of the American patriots who read my scribblings here, I would be very careful if I were you over the next few months. Organised demonstrations by what seems to be your side will be very suspect indeed. The time is to watch and wait, not to act rashly. Let the other side make a move and then don’t react. Stay silent and foreboding. Make them wonder what you are going to do and if and when something will happen. They have the patience of a five year old at his birthday party.

The Peacock, Capitol Police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt exonerated in internal probe, "A Capitol Police memo obtained by NBC News says “no further action will be taken in this matter” after the officer was exonerated for use of force." I thought this was already a done deal. Maybe it was, and they just have to trot it out occasionally to rub it in. It's funny how they can do this without naming the officer involved.

David Solway at PJ Media, Cutting to the Chase: Why Trump Was Driven from Office
There were essentially three called strikes against him, all that was needed to count him out.
There really is no need, then, for the discursive tsunami of books, essays, articles, evaluative documents, and position papers analyzing in minuscule detail all the intricacies, controversies, intrigues, diplomatic obscurities, personal records, intimate relations, interior struggles, and historical precedents purporting to explain the rise and fall of the 45th president, except for entertainment or scholarly purposes. For the “question of Trump” factors down to the three elements for which he was held accountable—personality, independence, and ability—and, of course, to the unbridgeable rift between the “anointed” and the “deplorables.”
- He was not “presidential.” He was considered crude in speech, rough-hewn in manner, and given over to bluster and hyperbole unbefitting the highest office in the land. For these transgressions, he could not be forgiven.
- He was an outsider, the first president in American history with no military or political experience. He was not a politician, a general, a lawyer, or a holder of public office. He was never a member of the Beltway club, whether Republicrats or Democrats. He was not followed by a train of professional lobbyists, owed no political debts, did not accept a salary, and did not enrich himself when in power. For these transgressions, he could not be forgiven.
- He was competent and proudly patriotic. He put America first, cutting taxes, renegotiating bad trade deals to the nation’s advantage, reducing a red-tape regulatory nightmare, making the country energy-independent and a net exporter of energy, rebuilding the military, defending the southern border, re-establishing global prominence, and connecting with the commons. For such transgressions, he could not be forgiven.
