I’m seeing some encouraging signs of life on the right, with more conservatives fighting back against the left’s assumption that they get to play Big Brother and determine the limits of OUR conversation. As long as we stick to facts --- not facts as determined by leftist “fact”-checkers but real, verifiable information --- it’s time to fly over the target and bomb away. Especially, we need the courage to ask questions and demand real answers. That’s true most of all when it comes to the 2020 election.

Former President Trump is right out in front on this and sets a great example. He DOES NOT CARE what the left says about him, and this weekend, he spoke out in Phoenix at Turning Point USA about cancel culture and the need to speak up about the election. Self-censoring is exactly what the left wants us to do. Regardless of what we’ve able to determine thus far about the security of Dominion Voting Systems, there’s much that leftists did to turn the 2020 election into a legal and logistical --- and unverifiable --- mess, and much they continue to do to keep us from looking at it.

“Just so you understand, you know, we talk about cancel culture,” Trump began. The biggest thing that they want canceled, is they don’t want you talking about the election that just took place. Because they say, ‘Holy sh**, they caught us! [wild applause] They caught us. [even wilder applause] THEY CAUGHT US. And you know, we’ve seen it: the scandal, the likes of which we’ve never had. But the only way you get away with the scandal, is if they don’t talk about it. They don’t want to talk about it.”

But Trump said –- and he’s right –- that they won’t be able to avoid it. They talk in general about banning speech, “but what they don’t want...is anything having to do with the 2020 election.”

Another fighter who refuses to be cowed is attorney Sidney Powell, best known for representing another deeply wronged individual, Michael Flynn. We don’t see much of Powell on TV right now because of legal saber-rattling by Dominion Voting Systems, which is acting on the theory that the best defense is a big, blustery offense. But that’s okay; the legal stuff will work itself out, and it might actually be better for Powell to fly mostly under the radar right now.

Readers have asked what she’s up to, though, and I’m happy to be able to answer that question, at least partially. Powell happens to be in the news this very day, concerning a desperately important matter: the treatment of those who “breached” the Capitol Building and are still being held without bail.

https://thenewamerican.com/sidney-powell-to-assist-jan-6-prisoners-as-inmate-letter-sheds-light-on-jail-conditions/

Last Thursday, conservative radio host Pete Santilli announced on his show that Powell will be involved in helping the January 6 detainees, who are called “political prisoners” by many (who have a point). Another attorney on the team, Cynthia Hughes, made the same claim on Steve Bannon’s show. “She [Powell] is really, really, really gonna get behind us,” Hughes said.

The announcement essentially coincided with the release of a letter from a member of the Proud Boys on the three-month anniversary of being locked up. I will not in any way defend the Proud Boys, who are labeled as by the media as being neo-facist and leaning in to white supremacy. But even if they are as evil and they have been reported to be, its members are still protected by the Constitution and are innocent until proven guilty and are guaranteed due process and not subject to unreasonable “search and seizure.” I’ll leave it up to you to determine if the treatment of this person is reasonable. It’s bad enough that he and others are being held without bail, but his description of the conditions he faces is shocking. “My body feels as if it’s aged so much,” he writes, as he can’t work out and suffers a lot of back pain. He sleeps on a thin mattress on a piece of steel welded to the wall. He gets very little protein to eat –- there’s some kind of soy-based “gelatin dog food looking stuff” –- and feels himself weakening, saying he can hardly walk.

Also, there is no privacy, ever, he says; even going to the bathroom is in full view. He has one small window in the cell, but it’s sandblasted to be opaque, so he can never see the outdoors.

If you break any rule, he says,, they put you in a brightly lit, freezing room, naked. Now he has panic attacks, “so bad I black out.”

He knows he’s not a white supremacist, he says, because he’s there with guys who really ARE white supremacists. In fact, they tell him they hate that the Proud Boys are being called white supremacists. “They all say I’m too nice,” he writes, “and nothing like the media makes me out to be.” And, in an ironic twist, the black guys he’s met there say that if the Proud Boys as a group are like him, they want to join!

He says he spends most of his time alone, reading the Bible and other Christian books. “The plus side to this [is] God was able to get ahold of me in this place,” he writes. “In the end I just pray people see the truth. I had nothing to do with that day. I never planned what happened. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

The man’s name is Joe Biggs. (In fact, he signed his letter “Joe Biggs, political prisoner.”) He’s a retired Army staff sergeant, a two-time Purple Heart recipient, and described by another of the Proud Boys as a “war hero” who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He’s also an online personality. If you know the story, Biggs is the man who simply walked in, took a few selfies to document his peaceful protest of what he believes was a stolen election, asked a security guard if he could use the restroom and was directed to it, used the restroom, and walked out.

He’s been in a cell in Florida’s Seminole County Jail for three months. If the report of what he did is accurate, and I’ve seen nothing to the contrary, this man shouldn’t even have been detained, let alone held without bail. The left has gone so far that we can’t even recognize our country. This is why we can’t be silent any longer.

Mark Tapscott in THE EPOCH TIMES has a story about four GOP members of Congress –- Matt Gaetz of Florida, Louis Gohmert of Texas, Paul Gosar of Arizona, and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Ggeorgia –- taking this issue to the door of the “Justice” Department Tuesday. They have questions for law enforcement authorities about what they knew and when, and why Congress wasn’t told. They also have “unanswered questions relating to the treatment of January 6 prisoners.”

For several months, they’ve received no response from Attorney General Merrick Garland. (The only bright spot about having this political hack as attorney general is that I get to thank my lucky stars he didn’t get on the Supreme Court.) His failure to provide answers is why they’re headed to the DOJ in person. Texas Rep. Gohmert, in a statement, compared what has been done to these detainees to what is done in “tyrannical third-world countries, not the United States.”

So, at least some Republicans have a spine. It’s time to join them, and speak out in every way we can.

    Why aren't we all standing with President Trump. Don't they see that this leads to NO MORE FREEDOM. I don't understand people. That's like I cannot believe people getting a shot (it is not a vaccine) that they know nothing about! I want to know it is not going to cripple me. Go to daystar.covid. This silencing of the frontline doctors, the media did all of this to the public too. The fda must know something because they have yet to okay this SHOT. It is not a vaccine. The shot has MRNA a metal where a vaccine has a certain antibody. That is why this covid is coming back, it's not the unvaccinated, it is the vaccinated that are the carriers. The frontline doctors warned everyone. Go get'em President Trump for silencing the truth of any subject!

    It is totally unconstitutional what is happening to these political prisoners! The real criminals are running this country! How can we help these people? Go funds? Are there sites already set up? Americans want to stop this BS!

    I know I am kinda slow, but it just dawned on me:

    One of the proven tactics of Marxists is "Accuse your opponent of what you are doing". They knew they would have to cheat eventually, so they preemptively accused Trump of colluding with Russia while KNOWING it was a lie. Now, people will think the REAL cheating that happened this time is just a non-story also.

    What is happening now in this country is downright scary. Is there anyone who can actually protect the American people form these insane liberals? Abuse of American citizen political prisoners, the forcing of a dangerous vaccine on unwilling people that could kill them or create irreparable harm? There are lots of people speaking out but it seems they are all actually impotent.

    Of all the horrible things this Administration has done and wants to do to destroy our country, the treatment of the people involved in the Jan. 6th protest has to be the most un-American thing I have heard about. The vice-president paid the bail for the animals that destroyed cities on the west coast as the cities burned. NYC turns every one loose without bond. And yet an unarmed person who was in the Capitol Building on 1/6 has been held in solidarity confinement, under deplorable conditions for months for what??? Please, God, let there be something or someone to help!!

    Good Evening,
    God bless the political prisoners. God please watch over them and keep them safe. It's hard to put into words how I feel about this mistreatment, it is truly disturbing. This could be anyone of us. This is the United States of America, we have laws and why aren't the laws being followed??? I pray the people behind this treatment are exposed and they are punished for their crimes. God save America! God save our children!

    This is SO disheartening how they are treating these people for that DUMB Capitol RIOT!! That was ALL PLANNED and they know it cause the Deep State Dems PLANNED it!!! If there were any Trump supporters like Joe Biggs.........they never did any harm to the Capitol or anyone in it!!! And they were ALLOWED in there since WE OWN that BUILDING in the FIRST PLACE!!! This is SO maddening. I hope that Florida Governor joins in to get these people out on bail.

  • Donna Oates

    I love Louie Gohmert, fellow Texan! Wish there were more like him! So proud someone is trying to help those poor people like the man you wrote about. I said a prayer for him to get out soon.

    Thank you for speaking up for those of us who have real concerns about the vaccines. No one seems to remember that these are not approved by the FDA. I have been reading the newsletters of two doctors who have spent 2,000+ hours each researching Covid and the vaccines. They are Dr. Russell Blaylock, "The Blaylock Report", and Dr. Sherry Rogers, "Total Wellness". It will scare you to death to hear of the deaths and the reactions people have had after taking the vaccines. Most vaccines in the past have been taken off the market with less than 20 deaths. These are not true vaccines, antibodies. they are messing with people's genes. Dr. Blaylock is very concerned what is coming down the road neurologically for some. Quite a few people have had paralysis. Dr. Rogers teaches people how to boost their immune with D3, zinc, and
    Quercetin or Hydroxychloroquine. She says that the Standard American Diet (SAD) makes us corona bait. If you want to know more, I am sure they would both talk to you.

    I live in Birmingham, AL, and it concerns me that we have a low percentage of our population that is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. However, it angers me that CNN was running a story yesterday that equated the low vaccination rate in Alabama with a high number of Trump supporters in the state. The story implied that it was Trump supporters who were not being vaccinated. I voted for President Trump in 2016 and 2020, and I am fully vaccinated. When I was vaccinated no one asked me for whom I voted in the 2020 presidential election. To the best of my knowledge there is no valid data to support an allegation that the majority of those who are unvaccinated are Trump supporters. This just shows me that the main stream media is less intelligent than I am.

But even if they are as evil and they have been reported to be, its members are still protected by the Constitution and are innocent until proven guilty and are guaranteed due process and not subject to unreasonable “search and seizure.” I’ll leave it up to you to determine if the treatment of this person is reasonable. It’s bad enough that he and others are being held without bail, but his description of the conditions he faces is shocking. “My body feels as if it’s aged so much,” he writes, as he can’t work out and suffers a lot of back pain. He sleeps on a thin mattress on a piece of steel welded to the wall. He gets very little protein to eat –- there’s some kind of soy-based “gelatin dog food looking stuff” –- and feels himself weakening, saying he can hardly walk.

    Also, there is no privacy, ever, he says; even going to the bathroom is in full view. He has one small window in the cell, but it’s sandblasted to be opaque, so he can never see the outdoors.

    If you break any rule, he says,, they put you in a brightly lit, freezing room, naked. Now he has panic attacks, “so bad I black out.”

    He knows he’s not a white supremacist, he says, because he’s there with guys who really ARE white supremacists. In fact, they tell him they hate that the Proud Boys are being called white supremacists. “They all say I’m too nice,” he writes, “and nothing like the media makes me out to be.” And, in an ironic twist, the black guys he’s met there say that if the Proud Boys as a group are like him, they want to join!

    He says he spends most of his time alone, reading the Bible and other Christian books. “The plus side to this [is] God was able to get ahold of me in this place,” he writes. “In the end I just pray people see the truth. I had nothing to do with that day. I never planned what happened. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

    The man’s name is Joe Biggs. (In fact, he signed his letter “Joe Biggs, political prisoner.”) He’s a retired Army staff sergeant, a two-time Purple Heart recipient, and described by another of the Proud Boys as a “war hero” who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He’s also an online personality. If you know the story, Biggs is the man who simply walked in, took a few selfies to document his peaceful protest of what he believes was a stolen election, asked a security guard if he could use the restroom and was directed to it, used the restroom, and walked out.

    He’s been in a cell in Florida’s Seminole County Jail for three months. If the report of what he did is accurate, and I’ve seen nothing to the contrary, this man shouldn’t even have been detained, let alone held without bail. The left has gone so far that we can’t even recognize our country. This is why we can’t be silent any longer.

    Mark Tapscott in THE EPOCH TIMES has a story about four GOP members of Congress –- Matt Gaetz of Florida, Louis Gohmert of Texas, Paul Gosar of Arizona, and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Ggeorgia –- taking this issue to the door of the “Justice” Department Tuesday. They have questions for law enforcement authorities about what they knew and when, and why Congress wasn’t told. They also have “unanswered questions relating to the treatment of January 6 prisoners.”

    For several months, they’ve received no response from Attorney General Merrick Garland. (The only bright spot about having this political hack as attorney general is that I get to thank my lucky stars he didn’t get on the Supreme Court.) His failure to provide answers is why they’re headed to the DOJ in person. Texas Rep. Gohmert, in a statement, compared what has been done to these detainees to what is done in “tyrannical third-world countries, not the United States.”

    So, at least some Republicans have a spine. It’s time to join them, and speak out in every way we can.

      Why aren't we all standing with President Trump. Don't they see that this leads to NO MORE FREEDOM. I don't understand people. That's like I cannot believe people getting a shot (it is not a vaccine) that they know nothing about! I want to know it is not going to cripple me. Go to daystar.covid. This silencing of the frontline doctors, the media did all of this to the public too. The fda must know something because they have yet to okay this SHOT. It is not a vaccine. The shot has MRNA a metal where a vaccine has a certain antibody. That is why this covid is coming back, it's not the unvaccinated, it is the vaccinated that are the carriers. The frontline doctors warned everyone. Go get'em President Trump for silencing the truth of any subject!

      I know I am kinda slow, but it just dawned on me:

      One of the proven tactics of Marxists is "Accuse your opponent of what you are doing". They knew they would have to cheat eventually, so they preemptively accused Trump of colluding with Russia while KNOWING it was a lie. Now, people will think the REAL cheating that happened this time is just a non-story also.

      What is happening now in this country is downright scary. Is there anyone who can actually protect the American people form these insane liberals? Abuse of American citizen political prisoners, the forcing of a dangerous vaccine on unwilling people that could kill them or create irreparable harm? There are lots of people speaking out but it seems they are all actually impotent.

      Of all the horrible things this Administration has done and wants to do to destroy our country, the treatment of the people involved in the Jan. 6th protest has to be the most un-American thing I have heard about. The vice-president paid the bail for the animals that destroyed cities on the west coast as the cities burned. NYC turns every one loose without bond. And yet an unarmed person who was in the Capitol Building on 1/6 has been held in solidarity confinement, under deplorable conditions for months for what??? Please, God, let there be something or someone to help!!

      Good Evening,
      God bless the political prisoners. God please watch over them and keep them safe. It's hard to put into words how I feel about this mistreatment, it is truly disturbing. This could be anyone of us. This is the United States of America, we have laws and why aren't the laws being followed??? I pray the people behind this treatment are exposed and they are punished for their crimes. God save America! God save our children!

      This is SO disheartening how they are treating these people for that DUMB Capitol RIOT!! That was ALL PLANNED and they know it cause the Deep State Dems PLANNED it!!! If there were any Trump supporters like Joe Biggs.........they never did any harm to the Capitol or anyone in it!!! And they were ALLOWED in there since WE OWN that BUILDING in the FIRST PLACE!!! This is SO maddening. I hope that Florida Governor joins in to get these people out on bail.

      I love Louie Gohmert, fellow Texan! Wish there were more like him! So proud someone is trying to help those poor people like the man you wrote about. I said a prayer for him to get out soon.

      Thank you for speaking up for those of us who have real concerns about the vaccines. No one seems to remember that these are not approved by the FDA. I have been reading the newsletters of two doctors who have spent 2,000+ hours each researching Covid and the vaccines. They are Dr. Russell Blaylock, "The Blaylock Report", and Dr. Sherry Rogers, "Total Wellness". It will scare you to death to hear of the deaths and the reactions people have had after taking the vaccines. Most vaccines in the past have been taken off the market with less than 20 deaths. These are not true vaccines, antibodies. they are messing with people's genes. Dr. Blaylock is very concerned what is coming down the road neurologically for some. Quite a few people have had paralysis. Dr. Rogers teaches people how to boost their immune with D3, zinc, and
      Quercetin or Hydroxychloroquine. She says that the Standard American Diet (SAD) makes us corona bait. If you want to know more, I am sure they would both talk to you.

      I live in Birmingham, AL, and it concerns me that we have a low percentage of our population that is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. However, it angers me that CNN was running a story yesterday that equated the low vaccination rate in Alabama with a high number of Trump supporters in the state. The story implied that it was Trump supporters who were not being vaccinated. I voted for President Trump in 2016 and 2020, and I am fully vaccinated. When I was vaccinated no one asked me for whom I voted in the 2020 presidential election. To the best of my knowledge there is no valid data to support an allegation that the majority of those who are unvaccinated are Trump supporters. This just shows me that the main stream media is less intelligent than I am.

    Election 2024 Coverage

    July 27, 2021
    |

    I’m seeing some encouraging signs of life on the right, with more conservatives fighting back against the left’s assumption that they get to play Big Brother and determine the limits of OUR conversation. As long as we stick to facts --- not facts as determined by leftist “fact”-checkers but real, verifiable information --- it’s time to fly over the target and bomb away. Especially, we need the courage to ask questions and demand real answers. That’s true most of all when it comes to the 2020 election.

    Former President Trump is right out in front on this and sets a great example. He DOES NOT CARE what the left says about him, and this weekend, he spoke out in Phoenix at Turning Point USA about cancel culture and the need to speak up about the election. Self-censoring is exactly what the left wants us to do. Regardless of what we’ve able to determine thus far about the security of Dominion Voting Systems, there’s much that leftists did to turn the 2020 election into a legal and logistical --- and unverifiable --- mess, and much they continue to do to keep us from looking at it.

    “Just so you understand, you know, we talk about cancel culture,” Trump began. The biggest thing that they want canceled, is they don’t want you talking about the election that just took place. Because they say, ‘Holy sh**, they caught us! [wild applause] They caught us. [even wilder applause] THEY CAUGHT US. And you know, we’ve seen it: the scandal, the likes of which we’ve never had. But the only way you get away with the scandal, is if they don’t talk about it. They don’t want to talk about it.”

    But Trump said –- and he’s right –- that they won’t be able to avoid it. They talk in general about banning speech, “but what they don’t want...is anything having to do with the 2020 election.”

    Another fighter who refuses to be cowed is attorney Sidney Powell, best known for representing another deeply wronged individual, Michael Flynn. We don’t see much of Powell on TV right now because of legal saber-rattling by Dominion Voting Systems, which is acting on the theory that the best defense is a big, blustery offense. But that’s okay; the legal stuff will work itself out, and it might actually be better for Powell to fly mostly under the radar right now.

    Readers have asked what she’s up to, though, and I’m happy to be able to answer that question, at least partially. Powell happens to be in the news this very day, concerning a desperately important matter: the treatment of those who “breached” the Capitol Building and are still being held without bail.

    https://thenewamerican.com/sidney-powell-to-assist-jan-6-prisoners-as-inmate-letter-sheds-light-on-jail-conditions/

    Last Thursday, conservative radio host Pete Santilli announced on his show that Powell will be involved in helping the January 6 detainees, who are called “political prisoners” by many (who have a point). Another attorney on the team, Cynthia Hughes, made the same claim on Steve Bannon’s show. “She [Powell] is really, really, really gonna get behind us,” Hughes said.

    The announcement essentially coincided with the release of a letter from a member of the Proud Boys on the three-month anniversary of being locked up. I will not in any way defend the Proud Boys, who are labeled as by the media as being neo-facist and leaning in to white supremacy. But even if they are as evil and they have been reported to be, its members are still protected by the Constitution and are innocent until proven guilty and are guaranteed due process and not subject to unreasonable “search and seizure.” I’ll leave it up to you to determine if the treatment of this person is reasonable.
