Election 2020: Feds Reluctantly Release Some Jan. 6 Video

We'll start with Jan. 6, where a Federal judge has ruled against the DOJ, and permitted a bit of the recordings from the Capitols video surveillance system to be released. 'Bonchie' at Red State, The Feds Are Forced to Release January 6th Surveillance Footage and Narratives Crumble, Not my narrative, 

If you can’t watch the video, what you’ll see are open doors/windows and people casually walking in. There’s no mad rush, no violence, no weapons, and certainly no organized insurrection. Instead, people mingle, take selfies, and snap pictures of the surrounding architecture. Yes, it’s trespassing and that’s illegal, but what’s on that video is a far cry from the vast threat we’ve been assured was present that day. Does it look like Congressional members were about to be murdered?

Again, I’m not trying to suggest that January 6th wasn’t dumb. I think the short-sighted idiots who perpetrated it did real damage to Trump and his movement. Yet, I also like to live in reality, and what these videos show is not a nation-shaking insurrection organized by some higher authority. Rather, it shows individuals who made a stupid choice.

But trespassing is not a justification to keep people locked up indefinitely, and it’s not an excuse for the government to withhold evidence from the public simply because they think it’ll be embarrassing to their narrative. There are thousands more hours of footage that should be released at this point. Let the evidence or lack thereof speak for itself. The idea that any of this is endangering national security is a joke, and I’m glad this judge saw through that farce.

In “INSURRECTION:” Insty, cites John Cardillo, "Hell they weren’t even trespassers, they were a tour group.". Via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 09.22.21, Twitchy has a long thread of funny tweets in Judge orders federal prosecutors to release new collection of Capitol surveillance videos from January 6. No wonder 538 whines that Jan. 6 Has Given The Right Hundreds Of New Martyrs.

More non-news about the fed 'arrested' for carrying a weapon at the Sept.18 Justice for Jan 6 rally. PM, Officer arrested at 'Justice for J6' Capitol rally will not face charges andYahoo! Federal officer arrested carrying gun at ‘Justice for J6’ rally won’t be charged but officials won’t say why . Because he was operating 'undercover' that's why. 

The Week trumpets Lindsey Graham told Trump over the summer 'you f---ed your presidency up,' book claims. Trump hung up. Yeah? So what? At Da Fed, Tristan Justice reports Cheney Family BFF Tapped As Top Investigator On Cheney’s January 6 Committee. Getting her licks in before she loses her election. Mona Charen, who I used to admire, is now a Bulwark Girlz, Why I’m a Single-Issue Voter, "I’ll vote against the party threatening the republic—simple as that."

From Kaelen Deese at WaEx, Arizona Senate previews Maricopa audit report presentation. And George Walsh from Am Think wonders What Will Democrats Do about the Maricopa County 2020 Election Audit?. If it's unfavorable, and all indications are it is, they'll kick and scream and cry "racism", "sexism" and a few more isms that most of us have never heard of.

Nick Arama at Red State thinks Ted Cruz Asked Richard Blumenthal a Question About Black Voter Participation That Blows up Dem Narrative “Why is it that Connecticut has lower African American registration and lower African American turnout than Georgia and Mississippi?” (Blumenthal is from CT). Twitchy has some responses

Mediaite claims Sidney Powell Claims Democrats Murdered Kelly Loeffler’s Aide To Cover Up Georgia Voter Fraud: ‘Pure Evil’. It's possible she's crazy; it's also possible she's sufficiently paranoid. 

Brandon Morse at Red State, Democrats Are Watching Helplessly as Their Influence Over Florida Is Destroyed, and 'Bonchie' reports A New Poll out of Virginia Is Five-Alarm Territory for Democrats. Ace, Polls Turn Poisonous for Democrats as Biden Bungles and the Cities Bleed.

From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 09.22.21, Don Surber think he knows How Republicans Could Take The Senate This Year. Kyrsten Sinema going Independent. That would be interesting.

At the Wa Free Bee, Liberal Group Includes Call to ‘Shoot Republicans’ in Letter to FCC. That might be a little strong, and we might shoot back. 

A left-wing group funded by the Center for American Progress and George Soros's Open Society Foundations submitted a letter to the government that advocated for murdering Republicans.

Free Press, a well-funded liberal group that aims to "reshape media" in the United States, sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission that included the question: "Are we going to have to shoot Republican[s] to reclaim our democracy?"
Are we going to have to shoot Democrats to reclaim our Republic? As Glenn Greenwald notes (via John Sexton at Haut Hair),  'There are no editorial standards as long as you feed liberals what they want'

News Thud's Paul Goldberg informs us that GW Bush to hold fundraiser for Liz Cheney reelection. Well she is kind of a friend of the family, FBOW. Then from JTN, West Wing slugfest: Trump throws haymaker at Bush for hosting Liz Cheney fundraiser.

HS Burnett at Town Hall thinks The Case of General "Righteous Strike" Milley Is a Test of America’s Constitutional Republic, and Oliver L. North and David L. Goetsch think Milley and Blinken Must Resign. OK with me.
