Jan. 6th Committee Goes Dark, Requests Secret Help from Telecom Companies

What confidence can the American people have in such a secretive endeavor?

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been hard at work trying to sell her January 6th select committee to the American people, but without much success.

The House panel was meant to be two things:  A bipartisan affair, and anything but a rehashing of Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial.  Thus far, the committee has failed on both counts, having not only chased away the Republican Party’s preferred participants, but also revealing that a main point of focus are those who were in contact with Donald Trump on the day of the attempted insurrection.

Now it appears as though the Democrats are hoping to obscure their targets in the probe – a move that will almost certainly be met with scrutiny from the GOP.

The House Select Committee investigating the deadly January 6 riot is set to request that a group of telecommunications companies preserve the phone records of a group of GOP members of Congress and former President Donald Trump, as well as members of the Trump family, who played some role in the “Stop the Steal” rally that served as the prelude to the Capitol insurrection.

The records request is the first step in the committee’s investigatory process and could signal the direction they plan to go when they call witnesses.

It is unclear what means the committee will use to compel the telecommunications companies to cooperate with their request. The committee does have subpoena power, but requesting the information — especially from members of Congress — could lead to a lengthy legal battle.

The committee decided against making public the names of the lawmakers whose records they are targeting, three sources told CNN.

Numerous unnamed sources, however, have suggested that there are multiple members of Congress for whom records are being sought.

FBI Informants Stormed Capitol on Jan. 6th, Muddying MSM Narrative

The infotainment industry is going to have a hard time spinning this one.

Published

on

For months on end, those who stormed the Capitol on January 6th claimed that there were interlopers among them, possibly even working to incite the violence and bring trouble to their ranks.

Of course, the mainstream media wasn’t having it.  They had the MAGA Movement right where they wanted them, and there was no scenario in which they were going to let this precious attack on the far-right go to waste.  No, they had decided that this was purely an incident of their own doing, and that they should be punished and ostracized ad nauseam on account of it.

But new reports seem to indicate that yes, indeed, there were some double agents among the throngs of Americans who stormed the building, and it’s putting the infotainment industry in a real bind.

As scores of Proud Boys made their way, chanting and shouting, toward the Capitol on Jan. 6, one member of the far-right group was busy texting a real-time account of the march.

The recipient was his F.B.I. handler.

In the middle of an unfolding melee that shook a pillar of American democracy — the peaceful transfer of power — the bureau had an informant in the crowd, providing an inside glimpse of the action, according to confidential records obtained by The New York Times. In the informant’s version of events, the Proud Boys, famous for their street fights, were largely following a pro-Trump mob consumed by a herd mentality rather than carrying out any type of preplanned attack.

And that’s not all:

After meeting his fellow Proud Boys at the Washington Monument that morning, the informant described his path to the Capitol grounds where he saw barriers knocked down and Trump supporters streaming into the building, the records show. At one point, his handler appeared not to grasp that the building had been breached, the records show, and asked the informant to keep him in the loop — especially if there was any violence.

The FBI has long been considered one of the shadier branches of federal law enforcement, often resorting to these sorts of tactics and infiltrations in order to achieve their mission.

Vaccine Mandate Cold Cause Healthcare Worker Shortage in Major City

This is WILD!

Published

on

With the number of Americans concerned about the potential side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine remaining steady, establishments that are now dealing in vaccine mandates are in for a rude awakening.

For months now, the vaccination rate has remained steady here in the United States, despite full FDA approval for some of the inoculations, and a steady stream of pressure from the Biden administration.  The issue is that, of all the folks who want to receive a vaccine, nearly all have.  Those remaining unvaccinated are doing so by choice.

And that’s why a coming vaccine mandate could wreak havoc on the New York City healthcare worker population.

New York state officials are bracing for staffing shortages when the state’s health care worker vaccination mandate takes effect on Monday, and could be looking to the National Guard — as well as medical professionals from other states and countries — to help address them.

Gov. Kathy Hochul released a plan on Saturday, outlining the steps she could take to increase the workforce in the event that large numbers of hospital and nursing home employees do not meet the state’s deadline.

“We are still in a battle against COVID to protect our loved ones, and we need to fight with every tool at our disposal,” she said.

That could mean declaring a state of emergency to allow health care professionals licensed outside of New York, as well as recent graduates and retirees, to practice there. Other options include deploying medically trained National Guard members, partnering with the federal government to send Disaster Medical Assistance Teams to local health and medical systems and “exploring ways to expedite visa requests for medical professionals.”

And, to make matters worse, those who find themselves terminated for their choice to remain unvaccinated will not be eligible for unemployment benefits, further infuriating those who believe that waive their cache to receive an inoculation are being discriminated against.
