Election 2020: The Reviews are In

The reviews of the Sept. 18 rally at the Capitol in support of the political prisoners still be being kept in jail for their hijinks on Jan. 6 are coming in. Jacob Heilbrun at Spectator World claims The ‘Justice for J6’ rally was a total dud, "The media hyped it as the next potential Capitol riot but Washington has rarely been more peaceful." I can't read the rest because I'm out of free views. Damn you paywall. I'm free, why aren't you! At LI, Leslie Eastman “Justice for J6” Entrapment Rally was a Bust, "Police, media and “fedboi” infiltrators outnumber ‘Justice for J6’ protesters. As expected." It's what I expected. At Da Caller, PHOTOS: Lightly Attended Rally For January 6 Rioters A ‘Huge Success,’ Organizer Says. Of course the organizer would call it a success, but I think any rally that shows off the peaceful conservative activists is successful too. Brian Joondeph at Am Think wonders What If the FBI Threw an Insurrection and Nobody Came?. At News Max complains, Police Overestimated Security Force for Peaceful 'Justice for J6' Rally. Better to overestimate than underestimate. Matt Vespa at Town Hall claims to know The Photo That Sums Up the 'Far-Right' Rally That Terrified DC and Liberal America

If that doesn't make sense, look at yesterday's post. A lot of the items above also glanced upon the obvious Federal infiltration of the the rally, and the apparent "arrest" of a gun toting fed by the Cap Cops. Andrea Widburg at Am Think thinks (no, not yet) While the Rally for January 6 prisoners was a bust, it still mattered a lot
What happened Saturday had barely any sound or fury and it truly signified nothing. At least, it signified nothing insofar as it was meant to gather non-leftists to protest the fact that, almost ten months after January 6, Americans are being held under miserable circumstances without the benefit of a “speedy and public trial,” and without being “informed of the nature and cause of the accusation” against each of them. The Sixth Amendment means nothing in D.C. and the rally didn’t change that.

Julie Kelly at Am Great has been stalwart in recounting the horrors of the bailless detention of people who committed minor infractions (at best) on Jan 6. Joe Biden’s Political Prisoners "BLM rioters, Antifa thugs, and anti-Kavanaugh protesters are off the hook while Trump-supporting, anti-Biden protesters suffer in jail for months, charged with obstruction and other silly crimes."

“The idea that people are languishing unfairly in grim detention facilities, though, fits neatly with a broad narrative that the Biden administration is rounding up and jailing political opponents,” Philip Bump, national correspondent for the Washington Post, wrote on Thursday. “This weekend’s rally is called ‘Justice for J6,’ implying that those still held are being detained unjustly for punitive reasons.”
Breitbart, ‘Subject to the Same Torture’: Family of January 6 Protesters Claim Deplorable D.C. Jail Conditions. I don't think it's any great secret that the Harris/Biden administration, backed by the DOJ and FBI, as well as Democrat friendly judges, are taking the opportunity to punish the Jan. 6 protesters for their beliefs. In the American judicial system, bail is the usual case, until a trial "proves" guilt, pre-trial detention is meant to be the exception, and not the rule, imposed on people who are unlikely to show for trial, and/or likely to reoffend. Sundance at CTH, Let’s Take the FBI at Their Word
The leadership of the FBI have been very clear in saying, the number one threat in the United States is the rise of “Domestic Extremists.” This, they say, is the greatest threat to what they perceive as domestic peace and tranquility. Take them at their word, what does that say about their perspective?

At Da Caller, Judge Rules There’s No Proof Rittenhouse Is Tied To Far Right Groups
During a hearing Friday, Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger asked to argue during the trial that Kyle Rittenhouse had ties to the right-wing group, the Proud Boys. Binger pointed out to the judge that Rittenhouse had been seen at a bar with members of the group’s Wisconsin chapter and that he had traveled to Miami to meet the national president of the group shortly after.

Binger had also asked the judge to allow evidence showing that Kyle Rittenhouse had gotten into a physical altercation with a girl who was fighting his sister in June of 2020.

Rittenhouse’s attorney, Corey Chirafisi, argued conversely that none of what Binger had asked to present was relevant. Chirafisi stated that the shooting couldn’t have been racially motivated as both Rittenhouse and the men he shot were white and that there is no connection between Rittenhouse and the Proud Boys on the night of the shooting.

Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder agreed with Chirafisi and stated that evidence of ties to the Proud Boys and the altercation with the woman would be excluded from the trial.

Rick Moran at PJ Media,  Judges Strike Down North Carolina Voter ID Law Citing 'Discriminatory Purpose' Yes, it was designed to discriminate against Democrats who cheat. HE notes Georgia Secretary of State Expects to be Subpoenaed by Jan. 6 Commission, Vows Not to Comply "“We aren’t participating in a partisan sideshow solely for the purpose of providing soundbites about an event we have no connection to,” he said. " At Da Caller, AG William Barr Warned Trump That Even Some Of His Supporters Thought Him A ‘F**king A**hole’. Sure, I think he's a fucking asshole, but sometimes you need a fucking asshole on your side. 

Da Hill, The future of the Democratic Party relies upon the swing vote. It's kind of sad that the fate of the country rests in the hands of people who don't see the big picture. Also, The Memo: Never Trumpers sink into gloom as Gonzalez bows out

Debby Saunders at Am Spec speculates about Recall Fails: What’s Next for California? "California voters chose to remain a one-party state." Continued suck. Jay Whig at Am Great, You Win Some, You Newsom, "California voters like the COVID-19 lockdowns, masking, and vax mandates because they think a benevolent power can save them from the inevitability of death." They're also desperately afraid Republicans might take away their "free" goodies. Cited at Haut Hair, NYT remembers the glory days, In Orange County, the recall's defeat echoes years of GOP erosion, while at Am Great, Lloyd Billingsley has less than fond memories, Recalling a Recall, "Here’s what happened when California replaced a Democratic governor with Arnold Schwarzenegger." Ahnold wasn't much of a Republican. 

On Gen. Mark "Righteous Strike" Milley, I think it will be while before lets reporters ask him questions. Frank Miniter at Am Think calls him a Deep State Poster Boy, while at Front Page, Bruce Thornton writes of General Milley and the 'Perfumed Princes' of the Pentagon. Predictably, Deep State mouth piece David Ignatius at WaPoo steps up to protect him, in Gen. Milley’s stress test

Milley was determined to prevent this politicization of the military, and the nation owes him a debt of thanks for his vigilance. But Milley’s efforts also took him into dangerous constitutional terrain that no soldier should have to patrol, edging close to violating the sacrosanct principle ­of civilian control of the military.
By totally politicizing the military. You can read a bigger except at Haut Hair. JB Shurk at Am Think thinks Bush and Milley Have Chosen Obama's False History of America. Not shockingly, Trump Sends Out Scathing Message About ‘Dumbo’ Milley (Da Caller). 
“For Lightweight General Mark Milley to have called the Chinese to “bring down the temperature” of my negotiations with them, negotiations that were having a major positive impact on large-scale benefits to the United States, is outrageous. We were not going to make any Military moves—never even thought of it, but we were hitting them so hard in all other ways,” Trump said.

“‘Dumbo’ Milley inserted himself right in the middle of my trade negotiation, and if he did what is reported, he would have had a profound negative effect on those negotiations,” Trump said. “Milley is an idiot with no common sense or ability to negotiate—that’s why he left $85 Billion of the World’s best Military equipment in the hands of the Taliban for no reason whatsoever. That’s also why 13 young Warriors are not with their families tonight.”

That smarts.
