January 6 – who’s been lying?

Tucker Carlson’s first January 6 release proves that the Select Committee and all involved authorities have been lying to the American public.

The night before last, Tucker Carlson of Fox News released, as promised, some of the surveillance footage from the Capitol on January 6, 2021. That footage can only embarrass the current administration and its loyalists. It also raises questions about miscarriage of justice, and the true role of the House January 6 Committee.

Where the January 6 footage came from

Tucker Carlson has the January 6 footage because Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Speaker of the House, granted him access. Why the Speaker granted him exclusive access, and what Tucker Carlson planned to do with it, was a subject of almost scathing speculation. Laura Loomer, for example, wanted to see a full release of all the footage. One logical reason why no Speaker would have wanted to do that, involved a real security concern. If that footage showed Members of Congress escaping the fray, bad actors could learn the escape routes. They then might plan a real attack, not the false-flag pseudo-operation the January 6 event turned out to be. And then, the lives of actual Members might have been lost, instead of one unarmed civilian and (as alleged) four Capitol Police officers.

But the Speaker actually addressed those concerns last week. He noted that his predecessor, Nancy Pelosi, might have already exposed some of those escape routes! Nevertheless, Carlson took time – two weeks, in fact – to review the footage to make sure not to divulge any more escape routes or other sensitive information of that kind.

As to Carlson having an exclusive, the Speaker said:

People like exclusives, and Tucker is some[one] that’s been asking for it. So I let him come in and see it, but everyone’s gonna get it. It almost seems like the press is jealous. You know? And that’s interesting because every person in the press works off exclusives on certain things.

The shaman was under police escort

More important than how Tucker Carlson scored his “exclusive,” is what it so far reveals. Laura Loomer does repeat that the footage reveals nothing we didn’t already know.


Perhaps, but reasonable suspicion – or even logical deduction – does not necessarily equate to direct knowledge from observation (or recording). So long as that footage remained hidden, all that conservatives – and some January 6 defendants – had, were suspicions. Now we have proof – that not only was this a false-flag pseudo-operation, but also that justice has already miscarried.

Note that Loomer also observed that Tucker Carlson did not receive facial-recognition software. One user speculated darkly on that point:

Nevertheless the footage does establish four things the American political left did not want established. First, the first Trump supporters to enter the Capitol were in fact peaceful. In fact, Jacob Chansley, the infamous “Q-Anon Shaman” with the admittedly ridiculous costume and make-up, was under Capitol Police escort while he was in the building.

Officers were seen showing Chansley around, even trying to open locked doors for him. At least nine police officers were in close proximity to Chansley, but none of them slowed him down.

Here is the key footage. Judge it for yourselves. Or read this account in The New York Post.

This year a judge sentenced him to 41 months in prison, then 36 months of supervised release. And all of it to atone an act of police entrapment.


Brian Sicknick did not die when and as authorities said

Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick must still be listed as having died in the line of duty. Before this week, the narrative always had been that someone, presumably a Trump supporter, killed him with a blow from a blunt instrument, i.e. a fire extinguisher. So why was he walking around, apparently healthy, after that fatal blow was supposed to have landed?

The New York Times first reported that fire-extinguisher narrative. They later retracted it and said he died of a stroke the next day.

Carlson said:

They lied about the police officer they claimed to revere. If they were willing to do that, then their dishonesty knew no limits.

Sicknick’s family, who are suing Trump and two other January 6 participants, seem to stand by the original narrative.

“Leave us alone,” they say. We’re sorry, ladies and gentlemen; we’re afraid we can’t do that. Not after that family sued the former President and falsely accused his supporters of murder.


Ray Epps lied under oath before the January 6 Committee

The infamous Ray Epps rears his ugly head yet again. CNAV has talked about him before. We’ve talked about his provocatively urging people to go “into the Capitol!” to shouts of, “Fed!” We’ve also talked about Rep. Adam Kinzinger (RINO-Ill.) denying that he was ever in the Capitol, and dismissing his provocative rant the night before as of no consequence.

The Tucker Carlson release now shows something else. Ray Epps said he was at his hotel when he texted his nephew that he had “orchestrated” what happened. The footage shows him on the scene – which means he perjured himself at the green table.

Last, the footage gives the lie to a story about Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) running from the scene. He was not running. Someone edited footage to show him running all alone. In fact he was last of a large group of Senators and Representatives whom the Capitol Police were urging to make some haste.

But the January 6 Committee showed him running all alone. That’s how then-Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va.) represented the footage at a public hearing, provoking laughter. (Current Rep. Jen Kiggans, R-Va., defeated Luria last Midterms.)

That’s not all. The New York Post reports that the Committee added a soundtrack with screams and shouts to the original footage, to make it more dramatic. Surveillance footage is usually silent, because surveillance cameras do not usually have microphones. So where did they get the soundtrack? John Travolta, call your copyright attorney!



Predictably, Democratic Members of Congress, and their media allies, decry the release of the footage. The New York Post quotes Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) as calling the release a “security risk.” But one reason she gave has nothing to do with January 6 or the physical security of the Capitol. She said it was because Carlson was “pro-Putin.” She could be alluding to Carlson’s opposition to continued U.S. support for Ukraine in that conflict. But is she also suggesting that Carlson is assisting Trump in colluding with the Russians, going all the way back to the Election of 2016? To determine the truth of that would require mental telepathy.

Likewise, Whoopi Goldberg accused Tucker Carlson of behaving like the “Ministry of Truth” from George Orwell’s 1984. Except, of course, that this footage is new and Carlson is exposing, not emulating, a Ministry of Truth.

Less explicable – and inexcusable – is for Sen. Mitch McConnell (RINO-Ky.) to suggest that Tucker Carlson should not contradict the Capitol Police.

The (Minority) Leader clearly has forgotten that when a “chief law enforcement officer” lies, it is the right, it is the duty, of those who can give him the lie, to do so.

Sen. Thom Tillis (RINO-N.C.) seemed to accuse Carlson of lying. He spoke of the breach of barricades, and “assaults” on Capitol Police officers.


But he said nothing about the evidence, already available, that agents provocateurs removed the barricades.


“Welcome to the D.C. Uniparty,” said Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA. CNAV agrees. “Don’t contradict law enforcement”? And who but a dictator assumes that, if law enforcement speaks, it must be the truth? Why even have criminal trials? Why not have police tribunals?

On that subject, Jacob Chansley clearly has suffered a miscarriage of justice. When those Capitol Police gave him a peaceful escort, they gave him permission – period, end of affidavit. As Charlie Kirk says:

His attorneys have asked for this footage, and a judge has denied them. That judge should face removal from the bench on impeachment for, and conviction of, skewing a trial to the prejudice of the defense.

Furthermore, those who accuse Tucker Carlson of “cherry picking” January 6 footage, are employing a Saul Alinsky Rule for Radicals.


CNAV gives kudos to Elon Musk, who actually found half these tweets. He has, in the last twenty-four hours, displayed more outrage than he has since he took over Twitter. For a first-generation American, that is powerful outrage indeed.

YouTube influencer Benny Johnson has an hour-long treatment of Tucker Carlson’s revelations:

Tucker Carlson promised more revelations to come. Those we have already, definitely prove not only that miscarriages of justice have resulted, but also – and worse – the January 6 Committee existed solely to propose bills of attainder and an ex post facto law against Donald Trump and all his voters.


CNAV cannot demand; we can only recommend. So in the interest of justice, we respectfully recommend:

  • Federal and other authorities, now holding anyone in connection with the January 6 event, release all prisoners immediately. Jacob Chansley pleaded guilty under duress; another judge should set that aside and dismiss all charges against him. A new set of judges should vacate all convictions thus far in this matter, and summarily dismiss all remaining cases.
  • A judge should dismiss at once the case of Estate of Brian Sicknick v. Trump et al. That family has sued the wrong individual; they should sue Nancy Pelosi in her capacity as Speaker of the House. She is responsible, and a judge should hold her accountable, for every untoward event of that day.
  • Ray Epps should stand trial for perjury, incitement to riot, and aiding and abetting entrapment.
  • The House of Representatives should expel any Member of the January 6 Committee still in office. Furthermore, those Members should face indictment and civil trial for misprision of a felony and tampering with evidence.
  • Senators McConnell and Tillis should resign immediately. Let their States hold special elections. Kentucky might present a problem – a Democrat now governs it. But no Democrat can be worse than McConnell has proved to be.

If these things do not happen, then the not-happening will stand as further embarrassment of the institutions involved. And more: those people continuing to support a demonstrably false narrative are actually praying for civil war.

The answer to the Title’s question is “Those who claim Jan 6 was riot”. If Jan 6 had been a riot the Capital would have been destroyed and much of DC. Look where the “Left” has had their “protests” and look at what really occurred. Our Republic is under attack.
