Julie Kelly: Feds Keep Claiming It Was an "Armed Insurrection."
And They Keep Failing to Produce the Actual "Arms" Carried During It.

How could it have been an "armed insurrection" when none of the "insurrectionists" were carrying arms?

No Proof January 6 Was an 'Armed Insurrection'

Not one person has been charged with possessing or using a gun inside the Capitol. Further, no one even has been identified as carrying a gun inside the building.

Since the Justice Department launched its nationwide manhunt to track down and arrest anyone involved with the Capitol breach on January 6, hundreds of perpetrators have been arrested.

Most face misdemeanor charges for trespassing or disorderly conduct, but dozens are in jail and denied bond for the thoughtcrime of believing the 2020 presidential election wasn't on the up-and-up. The acting U.S. attorney general overseeing the investigation promises to apprehend hundreds more, however, it's been two weeks since authorities have arrested anyone in connection to the probe.

...

Hundreds of crazed Trumpists carrying deadly weapons, the public believes, stormed the Capitol to injure or kill senators, representatives, and even Vice President Mike Pence in order to avenge a "stolen" election.

Most news outlets--as they did with the coverage of Sicknick's death--unflinchingly repeat the "armed insurrection" trope, which can be traced back to House Speaker Nancy Pelosiís January 7 press conference. "[Y[esterday, the President of the United States incited an armed insurrection against America, the gleeful desecration of the US Capitol...and the violence targeting Congress are horrors that will forever stay in our nationís history," Pelosi ranted.
...

When a thinking person hears the word "armed," he usually thinks of a firearm, or a gun. Yet here is how the Justice Department describes the trove of deadly weapons seen at the Capitol that day: "During the course of the violent protests, several violent protestors were armed with weapons including bats, pepper spray, sticks, zip ties, as well as bulletproof vests and anti-tear gas masks." (The zip ties, it's important to note, weren't brought into the building by Trumpists but by law enforcement officials.)

Vests and gas masks are "weapons," now, as far as the feds are concerned?

...

But so far, just two people have been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm--and thereís no proof either man "breached" the Capitol let alone threatened lawmakers as part of a coordinated, armed insurrection.

...

Only one defendant had a handgun on his person outside the building hours after the "insurrection" ended. The other defendant had two guns on his person but investigators don't allege he was inside the Capitol on January 6.

Read the whole thing. She notes the feds are claiming a helmet is a weapon, because the helmet was used to break a window.

This is an occupation government. This is a lying, brazenly corrupt repressive government. It is not of the people, nor by the people, and certainly not for the people.

She spoke with Tucker Carlson about this last night. Video below.

By the way, Brian Sicknick's family say is is their understanding that he died of a stroke, not due to a Magic Bullet fire extinguisher, though the feds continue to block them from getting an official medical report.

EXCLUSIVE: He was the martyred face of the Capitol riot but now mother of hero cop Brian Sicknick says she believes her son died of a fatal stroke - not a fire extinguisher to the head - while authorities won't say a word

The family of US Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick is still awaiting answers more than one month after his death on January 7

Sicknick's mother Gladys, 74, told DailyMail.com her son may have suffered a fatal stroke after trying to defend the Capitol from violent protesters Initial reports stated Sicknick, 42, was killed after being bludgeoned to death with a fire extinguisher - though those claims were later debunked

Another theory is that he had an adverse reaction to pepper spray or bear spray - both of which contain capsaicin

DailyMail.com has learned that one cop was indeed admitted to the hospital with these symptoms on January 6 after having inhaled pepper spray during the riot

Sicknick, was involved in confronting rioters at the Capitol, but appeared to be fine after the mob dispersed and had returned to his office

That evening, Sicknick texted his elder brother that he had been pepper sprayed twice but felt fine. He later collapsed and died at the hospital

Yet more than one month after Officer Sicknick's death on January 7, his mother says that they are still in the dark as to what exactly caused that catastrophic episode

Julie Kelly was also the first to rebut the left's (and Establishment pseudoright's) narrative that Sicknick was killed by a bludgeoning attack, thus setting in motion the chain of events that would lead to the New York Times, and then the National Review's liberal gimp Andy McCarthy, retracting their false claims.
