Two things happened this week that will rock your world. Or I should say, more optimistically, they will rock the mythical world created by the MSM. The first was when one of the January 6th defendants, finally got his day in court, and he was acquitted.
Matthew Martin was a federal defense contractor with a top-secret security clearance. He was arrested and charged with entering and remaining in a restricted building; disorderly conduct in a Capitol building; violent entry and disorderly conduct in a Capitol building; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.
Judge McFadden said “it was “not unreasonable” for Martin to assume that outnumbered officers were allowing protesters to enter the Capitol. McFadden said the government didn’t show evidence of Martin crossing police lines that the mob had broken down before he arrived.”
Note that the FBI has admittedly made 775 arrests, it has hundreds of outstanding cases in the works, and the Justice Department has requested more funding for prosecutors. Never in the course of human events have so few people been harassed by so many with so little justification.
This has already sent shock waves through the system and other defendants are withdrawing guilty pleas.
But the second thing that happened will have even more effect. Several people were charged in connection with a bizarre attempt to kidnap Michigan Governor Whitmer. Barry Croft, Daniel Harris, Adam Fox, and Brandon Casert, were put on trial. Two of them were found not guilty of conspiracy. Daniel Harris was acquitted of charges related to explosives and a gun. The jury could not reach a verdict on anything else.
In a Grand Rapids courtroom, during 13 days of testimony, prosecutors offered evidence from undercover agents, a crucial informant and two men who pleaded guilty to the plot. Jurors also read and heard secretly recorded conversations, violent social media posts and chat messages.
Their defense was not that they did not do these things, but rather that they were: “weekend warriors prone to big, wild talk and often stoned on marijuana.” They said agents and informants tricked and cajoled the men into targeting the governor.
These guys are not exactly pillars of virtue. But the defense argued that these losers couldn’t have come up with this idiotic plan without the help of the FBI who “wanted” this to happen. In other words, the FBI created the problem.
“Defense attorneys contended that the FBI and its informants directed the alleged planning and, while denying their clients took part in the plot, said they were nonetheless entrapped.
Several witnesses subpoenaed by the defense invoked their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination and refused to testify. One of them, Stephen Robeson of Wisconsin, described in court records as a “double agent,” was accused by the defendants of driving the plot.”
It is impossible to ignore the implications of this result. Several have argued that much of the chaos that occurred on January 6th, 2021, was “led” by undercover FBI agents and/or informants. There are videos of people who appear to be leading the charge, but who have been ignored by the FBI and the Justice Department. Anyone who even hinted that the FBI might have been involved in these types of activities has been quickly dismissed as believing in fairy tales or ridiculous conspiracy theories. Well guess what folks, that jury in Grand Rapids, Michigan just sent the FBI and the world a strong message. “We aren’t buying this crap anymore.”
Let me be blunt. These clowns did try to kidnap Governor Whitmer and they came armed with guns and ammunition. Even if the FBI tricked them into doing this, it was beyond bad. Now compare that to the January 6th, 2021, event, where most people focused on photo-ops, and if there was some kind of organized plot to overthrow the government, it remains invisible. These guys really were trying to kidnap Governor Whitmer. If the jury did not buy this, it is solely because they cannot trust the FBI. That is nothing short of another shot that will be heard round the world.
All those fingers the FBI has been pointing at January 6th, 2021 defendants are now pointing directly as the FBI and the DOJ.
