This week, Tucker Carlson and Fox News aired some video footage from the January 6 “insurrection.” It’s not the video we’ve seen all over the media, filled with terrifying images of barely contained rage.

Instead, it’s footage of a man who was supposedly murdered by the crowd going about his business. It’s a video of that dude with the bison hat, calmly and submissively walking along with Capitol guards who clearly escorted him into the building and took him around to different doors to “breach” the Senate floor.

I’ve largely stayed away from coverage of the incidents that took place on January 6th, 2021. I felt that we weren’t getting the whole story and that it was incredibly biased, but it also really did appear that people were behaving badly. Since we weren’t getting accurate information, I left it alone for the most part.

However, watching this footage and comparing it to the public narrative that is seeing these people prosecuted, imprisoned, and severely punished is mind-blowingly destructive to that work of fiction that the Congressional January 6 committee is trying to pass off as fact. The report is filled with breathless rhetoric about the fear the members of Congress felt, and how they were told to take off their lapel pins to make them harder to identify.

After watching this other video that has, up until now, been hidden from the public, their “findings” make me want to vomit.

It makes a lot of other people feel queasy too, but for entirely different reasons.

The MSM is trying to do damage control.

People who still believe in the mainstream media are having their opinions formed for them. They probably won’t even bother to watch the video footage that Carlson aired.

If you Google “Tucker Carlson Jan 6 Video” you get something like this.

Not unsurprisingly, there isn’t a single link on the first two pages of Google’s search results to Carlson’s show or the video embedded above, even though it is clearly what I was looking for. (I imagine that video won’t be allowed on YouTube for very long, so be sure to watch it now.)

No, they want to spoonfeed you what your response should be. Any time you see this much outrage, you need to pull back the curtain.

Chuck Schumer’s reaction is particularly breathless and dramatic. Laughably, he says he doesn’t think he’s seen a primetime cable news anchor “manipulate his viewers the way Mr. Carlson did.” I guess Chuck doesn’t watch MSNBC, CNN, or any of the other mainstream news outlets because that’s literally…




Watch Schumer’s response.

“Don’t believe your own lying eyes,” the MSM and politicians say.

“Believe what we tell you to believe.  You and your judgment cannot be trusted.”

Here’s Carlson’s response to the outrage.

They’re calling it a “threat to democracy” for Americans to have both sides of the story. (Obviously, we all know that our government is a constitutional republic, but let’s let that slide.)

Let that sink in.

They are threatened by us being able to see footage that goes against their narrative. They want to censor it. They want to hang Tucker Carlson in the court of public opinion and silence anyone who doesn’t swallow their story.

What’s the real story?

You may be wondering, what’s the real story? Is Tucker Carlson more accurate and unbiased, or is the mainstream media closer to reality?

I sincerely believe that the truth lies somewhere in the middle. I think it’s likely more to one side than the other, but I’ll let you watch the footage and make up your own mind about which side that is. I’m not saying that you’re getting the entire story just by only watching Carlson’s videos – it’s more important than ever to pay attention to both sides of a discussion. Soon, you’ll see patterns, and keep in mind that you’ll be influenced by your own biases too.

I’m not saying that nobody did anything wrong on January 6th, but I do think some people who were jailed should not have been and that some people who weren’t punished should’ve been. I don’t believe justice has been served in any way, shape, or form. I think that the 3 million dollars or so that Congress spent “investigating” this was all for show and that the conclusions drawn were – you guessed it – biased.

What is obvious is that nobody is showing us both sides of the story and letting us do that. There is no neutrality, no journalistic objectivity. Everybody is biased, and they present biased stories.

I just think that in Carlson’s case, his bias is spurred on in retaliation to the narrative that’s been shoved down our collective throat for the past two years.

One thing is clear.

Those who have the most control over the narrative have the most control over the country. If we were watching this go down in someone else’s country, it would be so much easier to see it for what it is. Think about how we’ve talked about “state-sponsored media” in Russia, China, Venezuela, and other countries that don’t boast of a free press. We pity their citizens because they are oppressed and don’t even know it. Now, these countries probably pity us.

And that isn’t even the most worrisome thing about this entire scandal.

Your takeaway should be this.

It could happen to any of us.

Wrong place, wrong time, wrong political t-shirt, and you’re one of the people lined up in front of the congressional firing squad. You could be the victim of judicious video editing that makes you seem like a violent criminal when you were, in fact, just a tourist who happened to have voted for “the bad man.”

Our government holds a kangaroo court, and our media is Pravda. We officially live in a banana republic, a country that is echoing the works of George Orwell so closely that it seems like they took a masterclass in dystopia.

I’m embarrassed.

I’m sickened.

I’m furious.

We used to be an example of freedom and a system that worked in the eyes of the rest of the world. We are watching the rapid extinction of all the things that made our country one that was the envy of modern civilization.

But this?

This shows you just how easy it is to become an enemy of the state simply because you disagree with the state. That’s not supposed to be how it is here. The founding fathers built the right to dissent into our founding documents.

Now, though, it looks like you do so at your peril.

What do you think?

Who do you think is providing the more accurate portrayal of the events of January 6th? The MSM or Tucker Carlson? Do you feel that Carlson’s reporting is as concerning as the media seems to say it is? And if you do agree with Carlson, what can be done about the possible miscarriage of justice that has taken place?

Let’s discuss it in the comments.

PS: To be clear, yes, I will moderate the comments. If you threaten to kill, harm, or otherwise do violence to a member of Congress or anybody else, your comment will not be posted. Seriously – that’s how websites get shut down. Civil discourse, please.

  • Our nation is a democratic republic, so we vote for who we want to govern us. If it mattered, we wouldn’t be allowed to do it, (Mark Twain, a great American) but I’ll let that slide. How much is the narrator of this documentary paid? Who paid him? This ‘gathering’ on Jan. 6 was organized on social media. Therefore, one can conclude these people, the majority, knew what they were there for. A doctor concluded that the police officer mentioned in this article died as a result of what happened on Jan. 6. Mental trauma is real and can result in death, people die from broken heart syndrome, for example. When we don’t like our government, we vote in the voting booth not gather and cause mayhem and death, and cause a mob, which has it’s own dangers.

      • We’re all brainwashed. Like Linda posted, hopefully soon more will come to realize who the enemy is. But,. it may b us

    • We voted, and Trump won. I stayed up until midnight Election Night, unable to rest until It was clear that Trump had won. And he did, at that time there was no way Biden could overtake him. So in the middle of the night, the cheating kicked into gear. That’s why so many thousands were there. To protest the stolen election. To uphold legitimate government, not overturn it. Sicknick died of a stroke which occurred after the protest was over. Ashli Babbitt, unarmed and non-violent, was murdered by a Capitol police officer. She wouldn’t have been there if the election had not been stolen. This last two years of the destruction of our country, of profound suffering by most, would not have occurred if the election had not been stolen. Carlson, as always, is doing the world a great service in revealing the lies and the horrendous injustice done to those imprisoned for being there, but having done nothing wrong. I hope these political prisoners will be freed now that Carlson has shone a light into their dungeon.

    • Do you hold the same thought for the ‘mostly peaceful’ protesters that burned down cities?! What is your reasoning for the BLM riots & the prolife clinics that were bombed? Righteous?

      The officer you must be speaking of was seen after his ‘death’ walking around the Capital. Total lie that he died of a heart attack there. He probably got Hillaried at home. 😉

      I’m not meaning to disrespect you, just encourage you to please consider another thought than completely agreeing with the destructive lies the left has vomited on the country for years. The lies are slowly coming out that some (not enough) God fearing Republicans spoke about & have never waivered on but were ostracized & slandered for.

      Question everything.

        • I read it twice and realized you were replying to her. I continue to be incensed at the BLM riots, arson, and looting. I just hope that this fracas over J6, the lab leak, and the Project Veritas sting of Pfizer’s gain of function work, will lead to something positive. We really deserve to have something positive after all these lies and exploitation.

    • The Unselect Committee re-told us the officer died that day after being hit by a fire extinguisher. THEY LIED.

  • I saw the video of the Capitol police officer showing the two men around some time ago. There was audio with the police officer talking as if he were a tour guide showing these 2 around. Also, the officer who died the day after, Schnick, I believe his name was did not get injured. The story before the family tried to get money was he had spoken with his brother after the incident s of January 6 from the station house. He was fine at that time.

  • My opinion has never waivered from that day. It was a set up & I stand firm on that. Trump won, period. His values for this country won. We the people knew it then, we know it now. The ‘new’ findings show me nothing I didn’t know. People were in the crowd to create ‘mostly peaceful’ oh wait… total ‘anarchy & an insurrection’…chaos on purpose. Pelosi turned down the National Guard Trump offered. WHO does that unless they have planned something? Pullleeeese. The power hungry left is so transparent it’s nauseating.

    God fearing people &/or Republicans (speaking of a majority of them) do NOT disrespect institutions or the law & would not & did not cause the destruction of the Capitol. Nor did the majority of us wear masks (sorry, just a tell tale sign for me) to hide behind. Those afraid of being identified wore them & were the culprits. People who have nothing to hide…hide nothing.

    Sadly, the people who NEED to see this truth, will not because they watch the wrong channel & read the wrong news.

    I will continue to pray, ‘God expose the lies & reveal the truth’. Thank you Daisy for your timely post!

    • I too watched the election, trump was winning, but all of sudden I saw the numbers change online, so you know it was rigged….probably about the same time you did….I also believe the jan 5 was setup to ruin trump, everything being done nowdays to destroy this country has been orchestrated by soros, obama, biden, hillery and all the rest of them! and they ALL need to be prosecuted!

  • Why?
    Why is MSM, Politicians, Desperately Attempt Damage Control Over Jan 6 Videos?
    Why the need for secrecy? The need to make some videos public, and keep others under wraps?
    Why was some of the Jan 6th hearing, testimony, held behind closed doors?
    Why the non-transparency?
    Why the need to hire a ABC producer?
    Why not allow the GOP selected members to sit on the committee, but choose two obviously biased members?

  • The whole Jan 6 was orchestrated to make Trump look bad and impeach him again. The hate for him for the 4 years was constant. They did not leave him alone, I’ve wondered why they didn’t try to assassinate him like JFK and others it would have been easier. Our country has been taken over by the Deep Cabal and I see no end in sight. It is so obvious. We have been in WWIII since March 2020. Good Luck God can only save us now.

  • I think it was Stalin that said, “It does not matter who votes, it matters who counts the votes”.
    That being said, there were many Red Flags during the count up. Especially in the key swing states.
    Every time the counts were challenged in courts, it was thrown out for procedure (too early, too late, not the proper context, ets.).
    When VP Pence certified the votes, he should have entered into the record that “The US Constitution does not allow me not to certify but there seems to be many irregularities in crucial key states that call into questions our voting system.”

  • I’m just an old “Hippie” , but one thing that I learned from tht time is … NEVER . TRUST . THE GOVERNMENT ……. EVER!!!
    or media that does not raise ” uncomfortable” questions to all sides . PEACEFUL protest is the only way .

  • Still waiting to see the 40k+ hours of video.
    It’s past time for a full release to the public so anyone who wants to can see them.

    • You planning on watch all 40k+ hours?
      BTW 40,000 hours is roughly 1,666 Days. Which is over 4 and half years of video.
      Enjoy watching. You better have a shitload of Popcorn.

    • Supposedly more than 35,000+ hours were videos of empty hallways and stairwells so they only reviewed the areas that actually had people on video. But I agree, make all the videos available to the public, after all we paid for the videos.

  • We live in TWO different countries.
    Country A: Is the United States we all know and Love. The country of Truth, Justice and the American Way. Where Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness is key. The Constitution is the Law of the Land. Where we have REAL FREEDOM. Elections are Free & Fair. The Bill of Rights matters.

    Country B: Is the Bizarro Version of the United States (Marxist States of America – MSA). Where Marxists are in charge. There is NO Freedom, NO Constitution, NO Freedom of Thought, NO Truth. It’s Their Way or NO way.

    Country A & B can not live together. They can not co-exist in relative peace any longer. Yes folks, there is a Civil War II coming. See you on the battlefield….January 2025.

    • FLAPrepper1 Amen! I’m w/u, wrote my long missive (waiting moderation). As MTG said ‘Time for a National Divorce’, you know she’s right as she got pushback from the Uniparty.

  • I’ve known since Jan. 6th, 2021, that there wasn’t an Insurrection or even a Riot. That it was more like a Tail Gate Party that got rowdy. How did I know? My Seditious Arse wasn’t there.
    I’ve long believed that our corrupt government and courts cannot be fixed from within. The Swamp isn’t drainable because it’s not a Swamp, but an Overflowing Septic Tank full of Excretia.
    The only way it can be cleaned up, is if We the People “throw off such Government, and establish New Guards for our future security.”

  • Our leaders have a credibility problem nowadays: lone gunmen/magic bullets, box cutters and old men in caves, yellowcake, election flips at 3AM, 81 million votes, bats in wet markets, safe and effective, mostly peaceful riots, now crazy Ukie sailors deep diving in the middle of an international military exercise and foam-flecked insurrectionistas guided thru the Capitol by the cops. Isn’t it all a bit much? It’s hard to believe anyone takes the news seriously, but plenty folks still do. As is the line going around this week, IQ and gullibility are not related.

    • Yes, it started with nine 1 one. Had we had a love for the truth and seen our government was out to murder us, we could have prevented where we are today. We’ve turned from God and we are paying the price. We are in a spiritual battle. Ephesians 6:10+, 2 Chronicles 7:14, 2 Thessalonians 2:10.

  • I don’t vote, I don’t care but I did see our capital surrounded by razor wire after the last election,seems legit….

  • Attacking Carlson for lying is so over the top, as it’s actual footage that Pelosi & her goon squad hid. They Only people that died were 2 female patriots at the hands of Capitol police! Babitt was shot almost point blank by black officer, the other caught up in tunnel was beaten senseless by a black female officer. Neither got charged cuz they’re black and Black Lives Matter! Get it? Btw Both victims were unarmed & posing No threat! Several Capitol Police members committed suicide in days after cuz of the narrative they didn’t agree with but forced to shut up!
    TC attacks, very similar to attacks on Elon Musk for exposing the Twitter collusion with emails from FBI rather than videos to suppress truth!!

    Wake Up to Lies & Manipulation of the Woke Marxists and Deep State running agenda while RINOs go along as part of Uniparty to maintain status quo and split the spoils (think FTX)! Destroy ???????? one Day at a Time!

    If you don’t like the Truth then it truly is time for a National Divorce!
    The crazy left in the coastal states and the heartland of constitutional conservatives! This way no arguments, you want abortion on demand, grooming of your kids, puberty blockers & transgender operations, Drag queen shows for your kids, satanic Hollywood events, homeless tent cities, drugs and welfare on demand, empty prisons of hard criminals, bankrupt financial system (Biden spent $ 8Trillion so far) etc..did I miss anything? So if you want the ⬆️ stay or go to your nearest blue state!

    The rest of us will do fine following our Constitution that served us well for close to 250 years! There’s a reason why Kommiefornia & New York are bleeding residents to Texas (750K) Florida (680K). People are voting w/ their feet, even progressives in Miami got it & voted (first time) Red.
    My long 2c, Save The Republic If You can Keep it! Ben Franklin quote:)

  • When I saw the video on Jan 6th, and saw officers pulling the “bicycle rack” barricades aside, letting people in, I remarked to my wife it’s a trap or a trick. That classic tactic would have been familiar to Julius Caesar, who used it quite a bit for just that purpose.

  • “PS: To be clear, yes, I will moderate the comments. If you threaten to kill, harm, or otherwise do violence to a member of Congress or anybody else, your comment will not be posted. Seriously – that’s how websites get shut down. Civil discourse, please.” It is good to have posted this because the types of unbelievable crap that has been happening to our country since JB took office would have Kim Jong murdering his closest family members. It is difficult to be restrained when one is not offered any other opportunity but ‘uncivil’ action in response to despotic, UNCONSTITUTIONAL behavior by one’s leaders. I really hope that there are aliens our there that are sympathetic to our cause because nothing would please me more than to see this entire administration transported and dropped onto N.Korean soil and told to ‘just get along’. I hope this doesn’t offend the moderators!
