Nothing screams political malfeasance more than telling lies about tragic events to advance one’s narrative and agenda. But the act of lying for political expediency has been the centerpiece of Joe Biden’s five-decade career in Washington DC. That’s why it’s no surprise that he would use the two-year anniversary of the January 6 protests to continue to gaslight the people.

Here are 4 lies fact-checked by Fred Lucas at Daily Signal followed by a bit of commentary:

Fact-Checking 4 Claims in Biden’s Jan. 6 Anniversary Speech

Marking the second anniversary of the Capitol riot that occurred Jan. 6, 2021, President Joe Biden struck a mostly unifying tone Friday by recognizing law enforcement officers with the Presidential Citizens Medal.

The White House event, held in the East Room, was a significant departure from the president’s more partisan, red meat speech at the Capitol to mark the first anniversary of the riot.

Biden strayed from the facts on a few occasions during his speech, however, and here are four fact checks.

1.  Officer Not Killed on Jan. 6

In all, Biden honored 10 officers from the U.S. Capitol Police or the Metropolitan Police Department with the Presidential Citizens Medal. He also bestowed the medal on two politicians, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, and former Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers, a Republican, for resisting efforts to change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election in their states.

The White House event primarily was about honoring more police officers for exemplary conduct on the day of the Jan. 6 riot, when rioters supporting Donald Trump fought with police to breach the Capitol and some then attempted to stop lawmakers’ certification of Biden’s election victory over Trump.

However, Biden also honored Capitol Police Officer Billy Evans, who was murdered in April 2021 when a member of the Nation of Islam ran over him with a car.

The president strongly implied that Evans’ murder was related to Trump supporters.

“Today is a ceremony to honor heroes of Jan. 6, but also to recognize the late U.S. Capitol Police Officer Billy Evans,” Biden said. “His family is with us today. Three months after Jan. 6, while they were still cordoning off the Capitol because … threats by these sick insurrectionists continued to be profligated on the internet, again all of America saw what happened when Officer Evans was killed defending a checkpoint he had to go through to get to the Capitol because of these God-awful, sick threats that continue to move forward.”

The Biden economy has decimated wealth and retirement accounts and things will continue to get worse until at least after the 2024 election. It behooves patriots to acquire physical gold and silver or make the move to self-directed precious metals IRAs from America-First companies that do not donate to Democrats.

Or go to GoldCo for peace of mind from a bigger company.

Evans was among officers honored posthumously by the president.

2. ‘Never Happened Before’

Ar one point in his speech, Biden said there never before had been an attack on the U.S. Capitol. This is not correct, since history records that the Capitol was attacked at least four times before Jan. 6, 2021, three by domestic terrorists.

“Two years ago, Jan. 6, our democracy was attacked,” Biden said. “The U.S. Capitol was breached, which had never happened before in the history of the United States, even during the Civil War.”

It’s true such an attack didn’t occur during the Civil War. But 47 years earlier, in 1814, British soldiers burned the Capitol during the War of 1812. It took about five years to rebuild the House chamber.

In 1954, four Puerto Rican terrorists—Andres Figueroa Cordero, Lolita Lebrón, Irvin Flores Rodríguez, and Rafael Cancel Miranda—attacked the Capitol.

Unlike those who got inside the Capitol building two years ago, these terrorist were armed with guns. The four opened fire from the House gallery, wounding five lawmakers: Reps. Alvin Bentley, Ben Jensen, Clifford Davis, George Hyde Fallon, and Kenneth Roberts.

Before leaving office in 1981, President Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, commuted the sentences of the attackers.

In 1971, a domestic terrorist group called the Weather Underground bombed the Capitol, causing $300,000 worth of damage. No one was harmed.

The so-called Weathermen returned in 1983 and set off another bomb that “tore through the second floor of the Capitol’s north wing,” according to the Senate’s history site. No fatalities occurred.

3. ‘Zero Place’ for Voter Intimidation, Political Violence

Biden said leaders of all political persuasions should agree on protecting democracy.

“Defending and protecting our democracy means that despite our differences of opinion, we must say clearly with a united voice that there is no place—none, zero, zero place—in America for voter intimidation—zero, never—and political violence,” Biden said. “They are completely contrary to the notion of democracy. America is a land of laws and not chaos, a nation of peace and not violence.”

However, Democrats’ 2020 presidential ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris was less clear about condemning political violence when riots fueled by Black Lives Matter and Antifa raged.

At the time, Biden, a former vice president and senator, seemed to take a different view than his running mate Harris, a senator from California.

“Protesting such brutality is right and necessary. It’s an utterly American response,” Biden said of nationwide protests after the apparent killing of a black man named George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. “But burning down communities and needless destruction is not. Violence that endangers lives is not. Violence that guts and shutters businesses that serve the community is not.”

However, Harris called on her Twitter followers to donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund to bail out arrested protesters and rioters. The bail fund secured the release of a convicted criminal who allegedly killed someone three weeks after his release, Fox News reported.

“If you’re able to,” Harris tweeted in June 2020, “chip in now to the [Minnesota Freedom Fund] to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.”

As for the president’s mention of voter intimidation in his speech: In 2021, both Biden and Harris supported HR 1, dubbed the For the People Act.

Among other provisions, the bill effectively would have expanded ballot harvesting, the controversial practice of allowing political operatives to engage in mass collection and distribution of absentee ballots. The practice historically has led to major voter intimidation scandals that in some cases led to the reversal of election outcomes.

4. ‘Insurrectionists’

At several points during the speech, Biden referred to the events of Jan. 6, 2021, as an insurrection. He mentioned “charging insurrectionists” who threatened police officers and talked about “sick insurrectionists.”

However, the term “insurrection” has a specific legal definition under the U.S. code (U.S.C. 2383), which says: “

Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

Biden’s own Justice Department issued a press release this week about prosecutions resulting from the Capitol riot; none of the 950 arrested in connection with the riot was charged with insurrection.

Prosecutors did charge 50 defendants with conspiracy, and four have been convicted of seditious conspiracy. The other conspiracy-related charges were conspiracy to obstruct a congressional proceeding, conspiracy to obstruct law enforcement during a civil disorder, or conspiracy to injure an officer.

Seditious conspiracy (under U.S.C. 2384) is defined this way:

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

Editor’s Commentary

As I’ve long said, the morphing of January 6 by Democrats, RINOs, and the Department of Justice was only partially due to their desire to stop Donald Trump. The real targets of the lies and the continued imprisonment of activists are us. The people who may have been willing to stand up against the advancing tyranny in America are less likely to engage in opposition actions today for fear of being thrown in the gulag like the January 6 political prisoners.

Unfortunately, it has worked. For the last two years, we have had many more reasons to be angry and protest the insane actions of our government, but few people do because of the example the FBI and DoJ have set with January 6 “insurrectionists.” We are being suppressed and intimidated and thus far there has been minimal pushback against the authoritarian regime or their Deep State puppet masters.

In 2023, we MUST reverse the trend of patriots self-censoring, of patriots staying home so they don’t risk getting targeted. In the long term, we’re ALL going to get targeted whether we protest or not if we do not stop the advancing Neo-Marxism that is taking hold in and out of the halls of government. They want us silent and scared until they’re powerful enough to stop us even if we do revolt. The window of opportunity is closing on America. Who will stand and be counted?

The Biden economy has decimated wealth and retirement accounts and things will continue to get worse until at least after the 2024 election. It behooves patriots to acquire physical gold and silver or make the move to self-directed precious metals IRAs from America-First companies that do not donate to Democrats. Go to Our Gold Guy for the personal buying experience with Ira Bershatsky. Go to Genesis Gold Group, a Christian fellowship-driven precious metals company. Or go to GoldCo for peace of mind from a bigger company.


Yes, We Need Your Help

I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…

When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.

Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.

The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.

We currently operate:

I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.

For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
