In a couple of days, the anniversary of the January 6, 2021, D.C. riot will be upon us. Fanned by the Press, the riot still seems fresh in our minds. While the U.S. House Select Committee has been an utter failure, if you watch or read the news you can still see that liberals are trying their best to make this a political knockout punch for the upcoming election. But polls indicate that the public isn’t buying what they are selling.
Well, let’s take a closer look.
Still called an insurrection by liberal demagogues, it was actually a short to medium riot. It began about 12:40 p.m., some 30 minutes before President Trump ended his speech, and wasn’t over until 8 p.m. That’s less than 8 hours, which seems rather short compared to the many riots our nation had endured during 2021.
But the irresponsible press and leftwing politicians saw and still see opportunity in calling it an insurrection. In my book The Facts About the Insurrection, I not only provide a definition of what an insurrection is, but I report on the ‘weapons’ that were used. The facts point to a riot, but an insurrection is more politically correct.
Before and since the book was written the U.S. House Select Committee has been “investigating”. With all their publicity they have failed to prove their case that it was an insurrection and they have muddied the waters with baseless claims.
We will explore more on the other side of the break.

Now back to the article.
The Facts About the Insurrection remains relevant. It not only sheds light on what happened but explores events occurring before the riot. And it raises questions that have never been answered.
I read an article on January 2, 2022 from the Associated Press. The AP was once a proud beacon of truth that Americans could trust. But not anymore. Today you constantly see reporters mixing their opinions within an article, thus making it appear that their opinion is actually fact.
I challenge to read any article about that day by an AP writer and not come across the phrase ‘a baseless claim’ or something similar. That is an opinion, not a fact.
Oh, once in a while it might actually be true, but in most cases it is the writer’s opinion. And that is just one easy example.
It is a sad day when you can’t believe the Press who are supposed to be above politics, but to this day you still see articles coming from reporters featured in the Associated Press proclaiming what amounts to opinions as facts, as stated above. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind reporters stating opinions, they have a right to have opinions, but when they write their articles that are loaded with opinions and call them facts, that is too much!
Apparently, our colleges and other educational institutions no longer teach ethics in journalism. At least ethics in news reporting. And for a representative democracy such as ours, we need the Press to be honest and trustworthy, something I find increasingly difficult to find.
The Facts About the Insurrection includes facts and my opinions. And the reader will know the difference. There are a lot of conspiracy theories being expressed on the Internet. Some of these have merit and should be investigated by our police, but others have gotten outlandish.
In my book I take a brief look at a few theories. There is still merit in a couple of them and one is not a theory at all, but rests on facts unearthed in the digital world and is being reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
