People do not need to ask questions when things happen as they always do, only when there is a sudden and unexpected change that cannot be accounted for. The violence on January 6th is an example of such change.
Strangely, most of the people who SHOULD be asking these questions — including the partisan press — are taking very little interest in such details. They have an event to hang like an albatross around Trump’s neck, and they really don’t care about the truth of what sparked it.
All they care about is how they can make sure this crisis does not ‘go to waste’.
They never stop to ask, for instance, how one of Trump’s rallies — which, against a backdrop of several years of periodic outbursts of political violence, rioting, burning, and unprovoked physical attacks on strangers from various leftist groups for a variety of causes –have been characterized by a remarkable display of the very kind of peaceable assembly provided for by the First Amendment.
What made this one different?
The left has been feeding us their explanation for a while now, but these are the same people who have been giving us one disproven and discredited version of ‘Trump is the personification of Evil’ after another from almost the moment he came down that escalator.
But we still want to know what sparked this event. Thy ‘why’ matters.
Especially since the official narrative about it being a spontaneous reaction to inflammatory marks by the President are getting shredded to ribbons in the face of known facts.
Raheem Kassam’s National Pulse has been at the knife’s edge of digging into these questions, including issues with the timeline.
Now he has unearthed some conversations in his online chats that make it look very much like there was an explicit intent to whip an ordinary protest into something much more volatile and dangerous.
The Discord chat channel is allegedly affiliated with Sullivan’s Insurgence USA group, which describes itself as “forming a rainbow coalition to unite all people under one banner to fight for liberation and freedom for all people.”
“We are the revolution, lets [sic] show them the power of the people united,” the group’s page adds.
The chat logs corroborate the recent federal charge against Sullivan, noting he didn’t attend the riot to “report” but rather to serve as an agent provocateur. Sullivan – who uses the name Jayden X – can be seen sending an image of himself in a Trump 2020 hat captioned with “counter intel” on January 6th:
Following the riots, other Discord user revealed they disguised themselves as Trump supporters by wearing hats and shirts with the president’s insignia: NationalPulse
He includes other screenshots about users flipping off Trump supporters, or claiming that many users whose views aligned with their own showed up wearing Trump regalia.
This, by itself isn’t conclusive. But…
…it is an important data point.
Many of the people present were, in fact, Trump supporters — including the lady who was shot dead. But crowd dynamics are such that sometimes a fairly small ‘push’ can set off a chain of events were even ordinarily law-abiding people do things that they would never have done in the cool light of reason.
Just ask the celebrants at any city that’s been torn apart when the home team wins a championship whether their actions were pre-meditated or driven by rage.
Sometimes, bad s**t happens and people get swept up in it.
The crticial question WE are asking here, and would like an answer to, is not who did the mob consist of — that’s the lesser of the two questions. We’re more interested in who broke the first laws, and more importantly — what was the driving reason behind it?
If this action was intended by an agent provocateur to create a Constitutional crisis, then the press and the Democrats have given them exactly the payoff they were looking for.
Such a successfull manipulation of the public discourse will only motivate them to do this again in the future.
This is why we need to know not just ‘whodunnit’ but who BEGAN it, and more importantly, why.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
