ATTENTION NEWS JUNKIES: We are the new Drudge, click here for the News Feed 

Within hours of Revolver’s analysis yesterday, an important new leak of unofficial information was circulated by The New York Times concerning Officer Brian Sicknick’s death.

On the one hand, the American public should be encouraged to receive long-awaited word on a high priority case in which it has has taken longer for the authorities to locate a suspect than it has for them to find and charge more than 300 criminal defendants. For reference, only 800 people entered the Capitol that day, and files have been opened on 540 suspects.  The set of “unidentified assailants” belongs to an ever-shrinking universe indeed.

On the other hand, as discussed below, these revelations raise as many questions as they provide answers. 

Assuming their veracity, however, these revelations fully vindicate MAGA of the original “Blood Libel” murder charge that antagonists have sought for seven straight weeks to pin on the tens of millions of supporters of the 45th President, which sins would pass down the generations and history books concerning the events of 1/6.

Bear Spray Theory Redux

According to the New York Times, the FBI has made “a significant breakthrough on the case,” pinpointing a single unidentified assailant as the prime suspect. That suspect was evidently seen on video spraying irritant at officers and discussing attacking the officers with the irritant beforehand.

It is unclear if the New York Times intended to definitively imply the irritant was “bear spray” when their own FBI sources said only “irritant” in the paragraph above and the authors speak generally of “irritants” below.

Above:

Below: 

The credibility of the New York Times being so low, we cannot rule out the possibility that the article’s authors simply used “bear spray” and “irritant” interchangeably, leaving uninformed readers to assume that “bear spray” was the culprit.

We still don’t have the toxicology report, which by now even the Washington Post is acknowledging is “unusual after 7 weeks,” so the truth is anyone’s guess.

But while taking the time to inform readers about different classes of irritants, the New York Times casually leaves out that bear spray is actually significantly less dangerous and more humane than pepper spray, and is indeed the tamest class of nonlethal crowd control irritants. So at best, the New York Times was being sloppy and bad journalists. At worst, they were deliberately deceptive, hoped you didn’t notice, and just deceitful primed you with the image of a snarling “bear” to insinuate the most lethal, aggressive or primal intent. 

As discussed in a compelling account by a 30-year law enforcement veteran:

Recall that multiple hours after the protest had already concluded, Sicknick texted his own brother Ken that he was basically fine, other than being “pepper sprayed twice,” confirming he was safe and “in good shape.”

Nevertheless, the definitive culprit “bear spray” has spread mockingbird-like through CNN, CBS, the DailyMail, the Sun, Yahoo, high low and everywhere you go, until we’re back in Gaslight Groundhog’s Ground.

The Unidentified Assailant

It is unclear why the “unnamed assailant” is still unidentified. On the one hand, an eerily similar case concerning a protester spraying a large group of police officers and admitting it on video was also just unsealed yesterday.

But that defendant made his remarks on camera about the spraying event after that had taken place, rather than beforehand, as the New York Times’s sources allege.

If the FBI has not named the suspect because they simply cannot find him yet, it is mindboggling that they would continue to issue “WANTED” posters on bus stops and Twitter for random teenage girls, while the key Sicknick suspect remains outstanding. Just two days ago, the FBI posted:

How strange. The FBI has crowd-sourced intelligence to the general public for virtually every other suspect of the Capitol siege. Why not release the “breakthrough” video and have the public help locate this suspect too?

Anonymous Sources

While it may turn out to be true that the FBI has identified the irritant perpetrator, it is disconcerting to see the speed at which this story is becoming accepted as Gospel Truth by media faithful. Both the FBI and the Department of Justice have formally denied comment on the story. That means the entire claim rests on two anonymous law enforcement officials leaking unofficial rumors to the New York Times. That’s exactly how we got the MAGA Blood Libel “fire extinguisher” hoax to begin with

Recall:

And now:

Hope it’s not the same two sources!

At any rate, if the New York Times report is to be trusted, it is a total vindication for the MAGA movement on the charge of brutal, bloody murder. It would render the official charge of the House Trial Memorandum, on whose basis President Trump was successfully impeached at the House of Representatives level, a total, thorough, shameful, dirty lie.

A gruesome murder by a bloodthirsty mob would be reduced to:

  • A nonlethal charge (prosecutors pursuing assault rather than murder);
  • A nonlethal weapon (irritant spray);
  • A nonlethal intent (indiscriminate release at large group of officers);
  • A nonlethal incident (victim in good shape multiple hours after); 
  • Turned somehow lethal by extremely unusual, highly atypical medical complications. 

It is one more reminder that the Official Narrative about 1/6 cannot be allowed to become sacred before it can become challenged. We are fortunate to have busted the New York Times’s MAGA Blood Libel lie so early in the process. Had it taken months or years to go unchecked, revisiting the issue would have had to painfully open long-sutured public and personal wounds.

In the following installment, our investigation will pursue lingering questions about the curious role of the FBI in separate aspects of the 1/6 story, such as how the “armed insurrectionists” became “armed.”

Revolver News is to be saluted and commended for its heroic challenges to the bastions of power in the name of truth and justice. Brian Sicknick must not be allowed to become the Biden regime’s Sergei Kirov, whose suspicious murder in Leningrad in1934 inaugurated the horrendously bloody and brutal Great Terror carried out by Stalin and his party and police henchmen.

If nothing else, at the very least the tyrant "Stalin" put an end to the torture and mass murder of White Christian people being carried out mostly by jews.

This is illogical obfuscation in the name of revelation and does not begin to address the questions that many of us have including why the family still does not know his cause of death and were not allowed to view his remains? Why was he prematurely cremated, destroying evidence, etc. This reeks of coverup during the most crucial phase of an investigation and seems to be moving further away from the truth.

They have bodycams as well, so they're definitely hiding something. If the 1/6 myth were as bad as they claimed for it to be, then they would show it to everyone unedited.

I see Witness 1 had the obligatory charge of “white supremacy” against the protester, I suppose that’s all it took. The Colony is a rather exclusive northern suburb of Dallas, very interesting this is where they found their suspect. I’m sure he will be able to afford a good lawyer.

I'd at least forgive the lying and gaslighting if 1/6 mythicist used it to get $10k checks and end wars in the middle east, but these partisan hacks are using it to imprison and reduce the inalienable rights of half of the country while enthusiastically enforcing the policies that they criticized Trump, Putin, and GWB for. Those totalitarians are inherently evil people and so are those who side with them.

If the "irritant" suspect exchanged irritant spray with officers, the FBI will have to provide evidence that 1.) Officer Sicknick was at that particular place and at that particular time when the exchange of irritant took place; and 2.) that it was the suspect's irritant spray, and not the police's, that affected Officer Sicknick, resulting in his death.

Casval

They know the truth as they have bodycam footage every officer in 1/6, it's clearly politically motivated for them to be silent about it. Just like they were with George Floyd. The 1/6 myth provides a valuable pretext for a surveillance state and political persecution.

Casval

I find amazing that our supposed "pro-democracy" intelligence agencies and media outlets call for the indefinite imprisonment (via withholding bail) and murder of their political opposition over falsehoods. Rather than evaluating the actions of 1/6 from the minuscule actions and tangible evidence alone, they determine it from the overladen amount of inflammatory buzzwords in media agitprop. That's why they whined about "children in cages", but didn't care when it was rebranded to "migrant overflow facility". That's why they complained endlessly about Trump's airstrike onto an empty airfield, but why they recently fellated Biden for killing Syrian civilians who were supposedly supported by Iran. When you think about it these gaslighting propagandists don't really believe in anything at all, they're totalitarians who will use any pretext to enrich and empower themselves. Every conservative should look through their facade and never submit to those evil people.

Face it, they are fascists, there is no reason about anything they are doing other than trying to eliminate their very popular and growing political opposition because they got super addicted to power and they know they are on the way out.

We don’t need to feel better than everybody. They do. It’s a pathology with them.

The thing about the truly evil is they cannot tolerate the idea they are evil.

As a retired police officer from the NYPD, I can attest that any media coverage from local papers that defends us, outside of the NY Post is doing so in order to place blame on a) The opposition; b) Other cops. Whatever The NY Times prints, the information is more than likely the polar opposite.

imagine trying to prosecute the "Killer". They sprayed me, I sprayed them. Everyone was spraying everyone. 14 different sprays used at the capital . . . How can FBI prove it was this non lethal spray that killed him? Even the victim states he was sprayed twice. No body for the defense to get their own facts. They handed the family ashes.

No one will ever be charged. As intended. This is just to support a narritive until it becomes embedded in "history"

If there should be criminal charges as a result of the death of Officer Sicknick could we see a viable defense of “despoiling the evidence” due to the authorities releasing the body for cremation leaving only the official autopsy as evidence of any alleged cause of death? 

The accepted way that courts deal with despoilment of critical evidence is to presume the evidence, should it have existed, would have held against the position of those responsible for the ruination or despoilment. In this case the presumption would be that the spray did not cause the death.

A lot of this could be solved by eliminating down votes. Proboards for example found this out a long time ago. It helps maintain peace and congeniality by only allowing up votes.

Face it, Openweb boards stink. Proboards requires there to be a legitimate moderator / administrator for each board. They have the discretion to remove flame war posts. Openweb, we don't even know who controls them. I sent them an email asking them some questions, from the email address they post on their website, and it came back to me as undeliverable! For all we know Openweb could have been created and controlled by the communist Chinese. Revolver, if they care at all, should scrap Openweb boards for a board with more accountability and far better design.
