It is obvious that at least part of the American ruling class is determined to create a real One-Party State out of that famous constitutional republic which we have always known as the United States of America. The Democrat Party-led sabotage of the US electoral system in time for the 2020 presidential elections was the start.
In the first of two articles I will endeavour to show how the January 6 2021 riots at the Capitol in Washington DC gave all the nascent authoritarian forces the “cover” to launch what is perhaps their first major (and overt) thrust to overthrow the American Republic and to confirm forever what looks increasingly like an Oligarchy in control.
Background to January 6 at the Capitol Building
The issue of Donald Trump being an existential threat to the globalist cause was never so much in evidence than in the almost-hysterical, 4-year-long attack on everything he did, led by the combined institutions of the state, the allegedly-neutral FBI, the Intelligence Community and the Department of Justice. It was all aided and abetted by globalist financial interests, the multi-national corporations, the commercial lobby groups (Chamber of Commerce etc) and the multi-billionaires wanting to retain the overseas, low-wage labour they had come to rely on and which Trump had pledged to replace with American labour. Needless to say, the mainstream American media were with them all the way until, as now, they are as tame as any from the USSR or Baghdad 1991. Many Republican members of the Congress and party establishment only just tolerated Trump in power but sabotaged him too, especially when the 2016-2018 congress gave Trump a majority. Those Senators and members friendly to (or owned by) commercial interests, made themselves known by their opposition to Trump then and, after November 2020, didn’t even try to hide it.
Their success in having Biden installed as president in spite the massive numbers of people who had (and still have) reasonable doubts about the fairness of the 2020 election didn’t signal “It’s Over”. Not by a long shot. Not only did Trump not disappear from politics, neither did he seem to lose any large part of his following. He had apparently awoken a constituency that the old political class had abandoned. Not only were his supporters indicative of a large Trump Party Republican base, this apparent threat to globalist rule had to be destroyed as a group or tamed into powerlessness.
The catalyst came with an early break for the globalist authoritarians: The riots at the Capitol Building on January 6 2021. The massive over-hyping of these riots (in which leftist/Antifa agent provocateurs were also in evidence) gave a chance to the rulers which was taken with both arms. It is yet to be seen whether the overkill and misrepresentation of January 6 will cause any real setbacks to the false narrative surrounding it, but January 6 certainly allowed the potential tyrants to go all out to destroy the US constitutional republic. It is to this organised and ongoing attack that I will now turn in some detail.
Selected Protests now to be “Domestic Terrorism”
With a media class of Pravda/ 1960s Peking People’s Daily “mouthpieces” to do as it is told, the elites seemed determined to silence all opposition, but also to criminalise it in many contexts. Immediately after the January 6 riot/demonstration at the Capitol building, they commenced to classify it as “Domestic Terrorism”, to turn Washington DC and the Capitol precinct into an armed camp, ringed by razor wire for months. They were beating up a scare that violent armed mobs of “insurrectionists” were going to attack and burn the Capitol in – yes they seriously claimed this – an attempt to overthrow the government! It was laughable on Jan 6 and laughable at the time of writing, even many DC left wing residents groups now openly demonstrating against the lockdown of their city for what they themselves see as no reason (no reason being confirmed as each day goes on).
The serious, but pathetic attempt to turn Jan 6 window smashing, pushing and shoving by multiple small groups ranging from left to right in ideological bent, into a deliberately falsified “insurrection” beggars belief. In some ways worse, is that complicit media in many western countries, including Australia, still call it an insurrection as if they couldn’t conduct a single bit of journalism and examine what that term means and what actually happened at the Capitol that day. This makes it worse, of course, as it exposes the media as the bankrupt, lazy propagandists they have been for years past. The seriousness of the occasion has not sharpened them up at all. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Roughly half the Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters and city-burners from mid- 2020 until today in Portland, Minnesota, Oregon and California were released without charge or charges were later dropped, whilst in Washington DC after the riots and “protest” of Jan 6, charges of trespass meant remaining in custody for months at a time. This showed clearly the corruption of the justice system in both the Biden AND the Trump administration. An out of control (uncontrollable) Department of Justice, yet another corrupted institution once relied upon by the old United States.
In the January 6 Capitol riots (or, rather, the assaults, trespassing and window smashing that these over-charged individuals will probably end up facing) not a gun was seized from the participants – this was admitted in a Congressional hearing into the incident. However, small groups of a dozen (and less) each of fringe and way- out groups were branded since then as being capable of overthrowing the United States Government! We shall see that was not so and no intent could be proved either.
The serious attack on the US citizens who were at the Capitol precinct that day.
As ludicrous as that claim of “insurrection” seemed at the time, when even that worst-case scenario was being trumpeted by the FBI and the left wing political elite, it showed that the lack of weapons was only part of the ridiculous exaggeration of it as an attempted “overthrow”. Not only did the lack of numbers and weapons show it to be a lie but also the fact of them giving mass publicity to the handful of people who make up the fringe “Oathkeepers” or the inflated Proud Boys. Later, real journalists would be able to really assess these groups and explode the lies by the Department of Justice. Journalist Julie Kelly was particularly professional in showing up the DOJ and the rest of the media for the flimsy, almost non-existent case against some of them. One of each group had been FBI informants and the Proud Boys leader/informant was arrested before the Capitol action even started.
These few groups branded as insurrectionists were partly matched up by the identification (by others, NOT the FBI) of the hard left, very violent, city-burners Antifa and associates led by the BLM/Antifa leader from Utah John Sullivan– he who dressed as a Trump supporter and was present in the front line from the very start.

Calling the Oath Keepers as major Insurrectionists show the falsity of the overall narrative
In a series of very thorough articles, journalist Julie Kelly stripped bare the false- demonisation of a few fringe groups for which great responsibility for the whole riot and “insurrection” had been chosen for them by the FBI and associated controllers of the response to these riots. The overall attempts to criminalise political dissent are clearly set out, thus flouting the spirit of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and a silly comparison made of January 6 to the Oklahoma bombings of 1996.
By using a felony charge of “Obstruction of an official proceeding”, carrying 20 years as a cover-all felony to go with what is eventuating as a mass of misdemeanour charges such as Trespass, simple assault and property damage the DOJ prosecutors are using an obscure charge that was never meant to apply to a protest situation. In a Signing Statement when it was passed, then-President GW Bush stated that it was never to apply to citizen protests exercising constitutional rights! That seemed logical in that when it was the anti-Kavanagh protestors invading the hearing rooms and their surrounds by democrats or urged on by Senator Elizabeth Warren, they (and she) were never charged with anything at all
Kelly spent much time on the case of the Oath Keepers, a group who were pulled out of nowhere and claimed to be guilty as “organisers”, having reserves of “100s” and intent to “lead” the attack on the Capitol. It was once claimed that 100 had been charged but only 10 appear in court lists. I am concentrating on the Oath Keepers for the moment in order that the over-the-top claims of extreme danger from this and other small groups have later been shown to be grossly exaggerated and whether that overcharging was deliberately or incompetently done is yet to be determined. The case of Jessica Watkins of the Oath Keepers is highlighted in this article.
When considering the over-charging and prosecutorial determination to hurt Watkins and her business, no matter what, it is noted that as to the extremely violent Black Live Matter and Antifa attacks on the White House precinct in 2020 and the multiple fires:-
The same U.S. attorney’s office now prosecuting Capitol breach defendants dropped nearly all felony rioting charges after the George Floyd protests over the summer”
In yet another article Kelly concentrates on the gross overcharging of the Oath Keepers. The article goes over fertile ground to show the injustices, but Kelly’s summation as to the whole group is quite cutting. Their evidence of guilt?
One of the “domestic violent extremist” groups responsible for the “attack” on the Capitol did not commit any violence. They had no weapons, they did not lay a finger on anyone, they did not vandalize or steal anything. They did not threaten political leaders or American citizens.
Like other parts of the once-uniformly bad narrative spewed forth by the corrupt media after inspired leaks from the sieves that are the FBI and DOJ, closer inspection tears it down more than a bit. In her articles Kelly lays bare the small size of the Oath Keepers, the lack of weapons, and even the lack of actions, not to mention the embarrassing backtracking as to what supposed weapons were there or even the presence of some Oath keeper accused at all. The “leader” of this “insurrectionist group” wasn’t even there at the Capitol and was a partially disabled veteran!
That was (and is) considerable Narrative Engineering and it was engaged in from various levels of government, backed up by unceasing and instant repetition by the complicit main stream media. It had the desired effect of keeping this panic atmosphere going for months until even a pathetic ring of razor wire-topped steel fencing surrounded the Capitol precinct was supposed to remain until May.
The end result was the spreading of fear of being cancelled everywhere, from jobs and government service on a condemnation by the DOJ or FBI and, of course, all social media over mere doubts expressed about the fairness of the elections. Most serious of all, the constant talk of creating a new criminalisation of currently-protected dissent to be called Domestic Terrorism.
Unless halted the US Military to be purged and weakened beyond imagining .
Then the purges process started. The unhinged bigot, General Honore, appointed by Pelosi to do a security review of the Capitol and precincts had by Day 1 (Jan 6) declared with mere moments of “investigation” that half the Capitol Police were compromised by being Donald Trump supporters and his blinkered, unresearched view started the hares running, eagerly picked up by tame media. Democrat members of Congress and the party machine ran with it – and still runs it. The police-smearing going all the way to California where supposedly some hard left politician wants legislation to ban conservatives from serving in the Police.
Now that trusting the police to be their normal, Serve and Protect the *community* forces had been trashed as a principle, the police haters moved to target the military and ferret out the “untrustworthy” ones, patriotic ones who would damage America and supposedly betray their oath of office!
Nobody who supported Trump could be trusted any more, nobody who had expressed conservative views could be allowed to remain in the military it seemed. Now the new leaders of the Defence Department did their bidding. An immediate internal examination of NCOs and other ranks for “evil thoughts” (ie conservatism, favourable opinions of Trump policies, non-complete adoption of the false “Insurrection” narrative perhaps). However broad it went, one matter could never be allowed to compare with the Jan 6 riots, assaults and window-smashings and that was the mass BLM/Antifa burning of cities all over the USA in mid to late 2020 (including 29 deaths). These federal court house burnings, attacks on federal buildings with officers inside, even an attack on the White House precincts could never be compared to the approach to any trespass or smashed windows in the Capitol building on January 6. The latter was obstruction of a proceeding (which was delayed) whereas the threat to the lives of federal officers in Portland and elsewhere was nothing (because it was at night says the new Attorney General). How pathetic is that, but it was the case that the usual media and Democrat suspects nominated the city burnings and 29 deaths as “mainly peaceful protests” even when in background vision was violent riots and screen-filling fires.
Now, already, the military reviewers who are out to detect wrong-think everywhere are very upset when they are increasingly finding (“everywhere” as they say) that the down to earth, patriotic troops are seeing equivalency between the BLM/Antifa riots and city burnings in 2020 and January 6 riots. Asking “what about” questions (eg “How come you’re not looking at the situation that was going on in Seattle prior to that?” and “This is coming from every echelon that we’re talking to,” ) is definitely not what they want to hear as shown in this article. Those conducting the sessions wanted
to make sure that military members understand the difference between Seattle and [the Jan. 6 riot in] Washington, D.C.,” Colón-López said. “But some of our younger members are confused about this, so that’s what we need to go ahead and talk to them about and educate them on, to make sure that they know exactly what they can and cannot do
I am not sure that this bodes well for the well-informed common sense “citizens army” to continue intact.
For the US military, it is hard to gauge what the end result will be, whether the hundreds of years of tradition will finally be destroyed now that it is being so targeted. One can only hope that the ruling class will back off in what could look like an attempt to create an ideological military out of tune with up to 50% of the people and, far worse, beholden to a political class. The worst-case scenario, with open, political talk of changing constitutionally-protected free speech and freedom of association into some vague definition of “Domestic Terrorism” do we have to consider the possibility of a type of military which is already on show in authoritarian countries?
Part 2 will show the unmistakeable consolidation of the movements by the ruling class to avoid electoral accountability and further remove actual power from the citizenry of the USA.Follow
