Biden Falsely Claims 'Criminal' Trump Supporters Killed Cop Brian Sicknick During Jan. 6 Unrest

The Jan. 6 incursion into the U.S. Capitol was jarring and contentious, and nearly every major Republican admitted that many individuals acted inappropriately. With that said, leftists have lied about the event ever since as they attempt to villainize Trump supporters at large.

On Wednesday, President Joe Biden lied once again about the Jan. 6 incursion. After meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Biden held a news conference in which a reporter asked him to respond to Putin’s ban on protests in Russia.

According to the U.K. Daily Mail, Putin said he banned protests because “he did not want a repeat of the January 6 riots in his country, or for a group like Black Lives Matter to form there.” This comment angered Biden, probably because he hypocritically defends one of those groups while condemning the other.

“I think that’s a ridiculous comparison,” Biden said. “It’s one thing for, literally, criminals to break through a cordon, go into the Capitol, kill a police officer, and be held unaccountable than it is for people objecting and marching on the Capitol and saying you are not allowing me to speak freely, you are not allowing me to do A, B, C or D. And so they’re very different criteria.”

In addition to the fact that this response highlights Biden’s inability to understand basic English sentence structure, there are two glaring inaccuracies in these comments.

The first and most striking lie is the suggestion that Trump supporters in the Capitol on Jan. 6 “killed” a police officer. Biden was presumably talking about Brian Sicknick, the Capitol Police officer who died the day after the incursion.

The problem with that statement is that the chief medical examiner of Washington, D.C., determined in April that Sicknick died of natural causes. He suffered two strokes and collapsed sometime around 10 p.m. on the night of Jan. 6, after he had already left the scene of the incursion and returned to his office.

This discovery was a stark contrast to the public assumption at the time that Sicknick had died as a result of injuries sustained during the incursion. The Daily Mail confirmed that a determination of “natural causes” means the examiner found a disease to be the sole cause of death and that the death was not “hastened by an injury.”

This means that according to the chief medical examiner of the District of Columbia, Trump supporters in the Capitol on Jan. 6 did not “kill” a Capitol Police officer like Biden claimed.

That determination was made two months ago, yet Biden continues to lie and blame Trump supporters for Sicknick’s death. It is a clearly dishonest attempt to paint those who support the former president as criminals.

To make matters worse, Biden promulgated these lies on foreign soil. A press conference in Geneva after a summit with Putin is a time to display America’s strength, not attack fellow citizens with lies.

The second lie that Biden forwarded in his comments was the implication that Black Lives Matter protesters were peaceful and could not be compared to Trump supporters on Jan. 6.

Biden claimed that BLM supporters were simply “marching on the Capitol and saying you are not allowing me to speak freely.” Here is just one video showing BLM rioters across the country in May 2020, courtesy of The Sun:

Can you see the peaceful marching? Can you hear the BLM supporters calmly saying, “you are not allowing me to do A, B, C or D”?

There are countless stories and videos from around the country of BLM rioters looting, burning buildings, attacking police officers and more. The suggestion that their actions are morally superior to every Trump supporter’s actions on Jan. 6 is simply ridiculous.

Obviously, Putin’s strategy of banning protests is inappropriate and should never take place in a free country like the United States. However, his implication that both BLM and the Jan. 6 incursion show that protests can quickly devolve into riots is absolutely correct.

It would not have been hard for Biden to issue an appropriate response to this issue. All he had to say was, “We support the right to protest in America, and we condemn any rioters who turn to violence instead of protesting peacefully.”

Instead, he had to use the opportunity to lie, attack his political opponents and embarrass America on the world stage. Unfortunately, he has already made habits of each of those three behaviors.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

Western Journal

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
