Journalist Julie Kelly (January 6: How Democrats Used the Capitol Protest to Launch a War on Terror Against the Political Right) is one of those rare, intrepid reporters who will dare to speak the truth when hundreds of thousands who also recognize the undeniable reality are too fearful to speak up and thus remain silent.
“January 6 was an inside job to entrap people who attended Trump’s speech,” stated Kelly in an interview with The Epoch Times’ “Facts Matter” host Roman Balmakov.
Now, amid the debut of the notably dismally viewed six-part-planned, prime-time January 6 “witch hunt” committee hearings this week, Kelly’s assertion is drawing increasing support following the release of a raw and harrowing new documentary, The Truth About January 6th.
The brief but important 45-minute film, originally published on The Gateway Pundit, highlights the disturbing oddities of “Insurrection Day,” capturing compelling, historic video of a mostly peaceful crowd of Trump supporters being enticed, entrapped, and then attacked by not only Capitol Police, who ushered in thousands of protesters to the Capitol building, but also many still unnamed and unidentified individuals screaming into the crowd to storm the Capitol, “To Go In!”
The narrator of the film, Edward Jacob “Jake” Lang, is a January 6 defendant who, in multiple scenes, appears to be helping others in the crowd avoid being trampled by a mob rushing into the Capitol building.
As the film outlines the events of the four-hour disturbance at the Capitol that day, viewers will decide for themselves what really happened in the wake of Donald Trump’s “Save America” speech, which, in his signature style of common sense and true grit, drew millions of people to the Ellipse park in Washington, D.C., just south of the White House.
Who Is the Accused Jake Lang?
Lang, now 27 although arrested at age 25, hails from Upstate New York. He was arrested on January 16 in New York and charged with multiple crimes related to his participation in the protest in Washington, D.C. on January 6. He is considered a “threat to society” and accused of assaulting police officers using a dangerous or deadly weapon during the Capitol breach.
“The government’s evidence against him appears to be strong,” reported Kelly back in May 2021. Though Lang has pleaded not guilty to all charges, he remains holed up in a jail in Alexandria, VA, awaiting trial on January 9, 2023.
Since his arrest, Lang has spent more than 530 days behind bars.
“January 6 will be remembered as one of the darkest days in American history,” writes Kelly in her revealing new book, January 6: How Democrats Used the Capitol Protest to Launch a War on Terror Against the Political Right. “But not for the reasons given by Joe Biden, the Democrats, the news media, and Never-Trumpers…. It will be remembered as a dark day because it swiftly became a pretext for the accelerated weaponization of the federal government to target U.S. citizens on the Political Right.”
In the hours and days after the protest, Kelly argues, “the FBI relied in some cases on emergency orders that do not require court authorization to quickly secure actual communications from people who were identified at the crime scene.”
Presuming this is true, the FBI was surveilling, through geolocating, lawmakers as well as average citizens ahead of, during, and after January 6.
Convincingly, a stone-cold response by an FBI agent to Senator Ted Cruz during a congressional hearing in January of this year was nothing short of astounding, as the agent refused to answer questions as to whether FBI agents were present at the Capitol, whether they committed any crimes, or whether they were involved in any way in the events of the day.
Many other vital films that evoke the facts of January 6 that the mass media will otherwise obfuscate from the American public have been released in the past two years.
