SHAMAN SENTENCED: Recognizable Capitol Rioter Learns His Fate

Will the outcome affect other upcoming trials as well?

Published

on

On January 6th 2021, as the US Capitol was being stormed, there was no singular would-be insurrectionist more noticeable than Jacob Chansley.

Chansley, the so-called “QAnon Shaman” entered the halls of Congress shirtless, face-painted in patriotic colors, carrying a flag-adorned spear and and wearing a large fur headdress complete with buffalo horns.  The images of his sauntering around the Capitol and entering the chambers of Congress itself were indelible to the event itself, and will forever live in the memories of Americans who were witnessing the event in real time.

Now, some ten months later, Chansley has learned of his legal fate.

“QAnon shaman” Jacob Chansley, one of the most notorious figures of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, was sentenced Wednesday to three years and five months in prison for his role in the invasion of the halls of Congress by a horde of Trump supporters.

“What you did was terrible,” said Judge Royce Lamberth in federal court in Washington, D.C., even as he called Chansley’s stated remorse for his crime genuine.

“What you did was so serious that I cannot justify a” sentence lower than what was suggested by federal sentencing guidelines,” Lamberty said.

Chansley was repentant in the courtroom.

“I broke the law, and if I believe in freedom, and if I believe in law and order, and I believe in responsibility, then I should do what Gandhi would do, and take responsibility,” he said.

“I hope that you see my heart and my desire to live the life of Christ or Gandhi,” Chansley told Lamberth.

“I make this holy vow and this sacred oath, I will never re-offend again,” he added.

The sentencing comes as those on the far right continue to dear the treatment of the January 6th insurrectionists as “persecution”, insisting that they are “political prisoners”.

Polling Shows Abysmal Support for Biden Reelection…Among Democrats

The numbers are simply staggering.

Published

on

US President Joe Biden’s approval ratings are abysmal.  They’re so terrible, in fact, that the White House really has no way of denying it any longer.  Instead, they’ve turned to a strategy of simply suggesting that Biden will run for reelection again, essentially putting off all of the controversy until the voters have a chance to chime in.

It’s a slick trick, that’s for sure, but the latest polling among Democrats now shows why this is a terrible idea.

Just over one-third of Democrats want to see President Joe Biden as the candidate on the 2024 Democrat presidential ticket, an I&I/TIPP poll released Monday found.

The survey asked respondents, “Who do you want to see run for president on the Democratic ticket in 2024?”

Overall, 22 percent said Biden, followed by 12 percent who said Vice President Kamala Harris, four percent who said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, and three percent who said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA), and Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. The remaining potential candidates garnered two percent support or less. Thirty-one percent, overall, say they are unsure.

It gets worse…

Even among Democrats, specifically, Biden fails to see overwhelming support, as only 37 percent say they want to see him run again on the Democrat ticket in the next presidential election cycle. Another 16 percent of Democrats chose Harris, and 13 percent, overall, remain unsure.

37 percent of independents say they are “not sure” who they want to see run on the Democrat ticket, but only eight percent say it should be Biden.

And then, in a troubling blow to Biden’s perceived ability to snatch up votes in the political middle, only 8% of independents said that they were in favor of Biden running again.
