If you want to pick the moment when the U.S. slid irretrievably into a police state, the January 6 persecution is probably it. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:
On October 11, FBI Special Agent Justin Eller testified at the seditious conspiracy trial of four Oath Keepers in federal court. An attorney for the defense asked Eller if in the Oath Keepers’ communications that he reviewed there was any indication that the Oath Keepers intended to storm the Capitol or stop the certification of the stolen presidential election. He answered “no” to both questions.
In other words, the FBI and the federal prosecutor had no evidence in support of the charges against the Oath Keepers who were on trial.
Today this is commonplace in America.
Before we go further, let us establish the identity of Oath Keepers. According to the whore media they are far rightwing white supremacists who are a threat to American democracy. But in actual fact they seem to be for the most part military veterans who swore the oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. As the Oath Keepers were formed for that purpose, why, if they are Oath Keepers, would they violate their oath by conspiring against the United States?
The Democrats know, as does the whore media, that the Democrats stole the last presidential election. The presstitute mantra that “there is no evidence of a stolen election” is demonstrably false from the hard evidence and its presentation by many independent experts. But as the presstitutes say it is not so, it is not so.
