    TC may be well off the mark with this CT but the relevant authorities downplayed the enormity of the situation – it almost feels like they wanted something bad to happen.

    LOL. How to destroy a newspaper that people used to rely on for news: allow its takeover by a monopoly capitalist with an antisocial agenda hellbent on preventing DC lawmakers, its primary audience, from breaking up said destructive, all-consuming monopoly – which lately can’t hide its voracious appetite for nation-wrecking propaganda with its expansion into TV and “entertainment”.

    The guy in the MAGA hat next to Antifa John Sullivan has been identified as a former FBI agent, Ray Epps, who was inciting the crowd to go INTO the Capitol not just TO the Capitol. There is also 14000 hours of video of the day being with held which may show what involvement False Flag organisers had in the “insurrection”. The first people through the doors were wearing the all black outfits synonymous with Antifa. The Commission may turn up some unpleasant truths for Madam Pelosi and her crooked Democrats.

    If the Washington Post says an allegation is “wild, baseless”, then it must be true.

  5. Petros says:

    Did they really think that people were not going to review the video footage and try to identify the participants?

  6. harrys on the boat says:

    Is that an Onion piece? This Aaron tossers claim that Tucker’s theory is wild and baseless is that he doesn’t like Carlson or a guest he had on (who was white heaven forbid) and he got a single quote from someone saying that it probably is.

    Its exactly how that fat fucking turd Monty argues a point – utter disgrace.

  7. Professor Fred Lenin says:

    What a distraction from the election theft a false “insurrection ” would be it would distract from the Putsch by the Swamp. Itwould also give an excuse to protect the thieves with thousands of troops and razor wire . It has all the hallmarks of a CIA plan to dispose of a foreign government the Swamp didnt like.
    They could not risk another 4 years of Trump he might start charging them with the crimes ,they had commited,and jailing them
    Can you imagine what a genuine inestigation of their corruption would reveal ?
    America has been corrupt forever ,but not as blatantly obvious as now ,Wall street has been giving politicias billions annually to help them get elected ,and of course expecting nothingin return?

  8. Mother Lode says:

    WaPo denies it?

    It should be confirmed in the next few weeks then.

  9. Timothy Neilson says:

    WaPo denies it?

    It should be confirmed in the next few weeks then.

    Then WaPo will go back to its internet archives and change the story from “wild, baseless” to “unconfirmed”.

  10. Leo G says:

    “… an unindicted co-conspirator has committed the crime of conspiracy, and investigative agents doing their jobs undercover are not committing crimes.”

    How difficult can it be to accept that investigative agents committing crimes undercover are not committing crimes? After all, it’s no problem for a Washington Post hack journalist.

  11. Damon says:

    change the story from “wild, baseless” to “unconfirmed”
    Sounds just like ‘their’ ABC.

  12. Xenophon says:

    Yet more evidence of Trump’s genius and the total integrity of Tucker Carlson (named of course for the best seller of the Carlson family’s TV dinner empire). It’s probably best that the FBI is disbanded and replaced by someone competent chosen by Trump. FSB would be a good step up.

  13. Richard says:

    The Darren Beattie/Tucker Carlson analysis of 1/6 is undoubtedly the most accurate one so far – we know so because we know that what they reported matches precisely with the FBI’s counter-terrorism Modus Operandi – and the FBI have explicitly stated that “far-right” “white nationalism” is the primary target of their counter-terrorism activities these days. (As have ASIO, insanely enough…)

    That’s why this story was hit so many of us on the right like a freight train this week – we know its true because we can feel the gravity of truth in the report.

    And it makes us feel embarrassed for not realising it earlier.

    We already knew that the FBI had been targetting “far-right” extremists since pretty much the moment Hilary Clinton lost the 2016 election. And we already knew about the counter-terrorism tactics the FBI had been using for the past decade or so – routinely using entrapment to catch terrorists.

    But we hadn’t put two and two together in the context the 1/6 events until it was literally spelled out, and now we’re like “of course! It all makes sense now…”

  14. Tom says:

    Brilliant summary, Richard at 5.29pm.

  15. hzhousewife says:

    I hope Tucker’s security is good.

  16. Richard says:

    Thanks Tom. If you have time though, a far more brilliant summary of the situation so far has been written by Glenn Greenwald: https://greenwald.substack.com/p/questions-about-the-fbis-role-in

    Grip just had a broken clock moment. I hope it didn’t spontaneously combust afterwards…

    Well done, bugman. 🙂

  18. Chrism says:

    unfortunately we outside a security service find it difficult to weigh such claims and derive reliable estimates of truth

    the usual media process leaves much to be desired

    somewhere someone may have an AI that can sift through the billions of references and come up with a better estimate

    for me, the ‘cui bono’ principle is the best I have

    when Dan says he fell at a ‘Mornington Peninsula holiday home’ we know it is likely he is covering his tracks for some reason – the cui bono is him & the owner of the residence & the assumption is that the owner benefits from state govt contracts & takes care of and will take care of Dan

    in the 6/1 insurrection the assumption for me is that the recognition of trump supporter dissatisfaction and threats to protest at the Capitol has lead to a number of parties facilitating the invasion, one of which is very likely to be the FBI for reasonable but possibly also for partisan reasons – the relative FBI lack of identification of ANTIFA actors leads to the conclusion of partisanship being a significant factor – in Victoria compare ANZAC march with BLM march

    If you start from the dead in a ditch Fourth Estate and a hopelessly corrupted media, where do you finish up?

  20. Andre Lewis says:

    I’m getting in early – “Tucker Carlson did not commit suicide.”

  21. Mango Man says:

    Not at all Rex. Trump has clearly cured COVID, wiped out the debt of the US, thoroughly cowed Iran, wrecked China’s strategy and completely fixed the US border issues. Sadly he did not get around to ditching the FBI and maybe outsourcing it to Putin, but it’s a small fail.

    Lazy, unimaginative and stupid.

    Typical leftwit troll, mesmerised by Orange Man Bad.

  23. W Hogg says:

    The Commission may turn up some unpleasant truths for Madam Pelosi and her crooked Democrats.

    Did the Mueller “investigation” turn up the unpleasant truth that the primary Russian involvement in the 2016 election was actually the Illary-Kremlin-Steele kompromat JV, in which the DNC purchased their campaign material from the Kremlin in the hope of steeleing the election? Who was jailed for illegal election interference:
    A. Illary
    B. Trump666’s lawyer

  24. W Hogg says:

    BTW I too have been tending to hold off believing conspiracy theories I see until the FakeNews meeja “debunks” them as proof they’re true.

    MAGA theories on the Jan 6 riot/assault/insurrection/tourist visit so far

    – It was Antifa
    – It was an FBI false flag
    – The Capitol cops just let them in (ties in with the FBI false flag I guess, but that would make the 140 injured cops/ 3 post Jan 6 cop suicides / 1 cop who died the next day “crisis actors”).
    – It wasn’t so bad anyway, the so-called insurrectionists walked around like tourists
    – Ashli Babbit was an innocent freedom fighter murdered in cold blood

    Truly a “firehose of bullshit” (credit to Steve Bannon).

    Two things I don’t get;

    1) if MAGA honestly thinks it was an FBI and/or Antifa false flag then why were/are they so against an independent bipartisan congressional investigation so this could be uncovered?

    2) Storming the capitol to prevent certification of the election is actually logical and justified if you believe the election was rigged and stolen, so why throw your fellow right wingers under the bus (by denying they are real right wingers) when they had the balls to turn up and try and save their country (I mean from the MAGA POV)?

    Lastly; John Sullivan is and was not an “Antifa Activist” …he was cast out of U.S far left groups as a right wing agitator and criminal and grifter in November 2020. I have posted the twitter link (dated November 2020) proving this previously on CF, can post again if requested.

    What convenient timing!

  27. Mango Man says:

    Rex, when you say “Orange Man bad” do you mean President Trump? If so, is that something an infant told you?
    Surely you know that he is a godsend and, with the time on his hands these days, he will no doubt cure cancer or raise millions out of poverty?

    Your sarcasm is an unimaginative and lazy as the NPC drivel you are programmed to spout, troll.

    You flatter the fool.
