Testimony at Tuesday’s hearing by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s special committee to review the violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6 quickly devolved into political talking points.
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
That would be use of the long debunked claim that officer Brian Sicknick of the Capitol police died “in the line of duty.”
The Washington Examiner said that “evidence-free claim” reemerged in a claim from Rep. Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat appointed to lead the committee, that “seven people lost their lives” in the events.
That would appear to include Sicknick, two officers who died by suicide in subsequent days, two protesters who had heart attacks, another death from suspected drug overdose and the death of an unarmed protester who was shot and killed by a police officer.
The report said the facts are that Sicknick, 42, died the day after responding to the riot, which happened as members of Congress were voting to affirm Joe Biden as president.
News outlets falsely claimed Sicknick was beaten with a fire extinguisher, but the medical examiner concluded Sicknick suffered two strokes and that his death was from “natural” causes.
After Thompson’s claim, Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn perpetuated the misinformation in his remarks.
“I’d like to take a moment of my time to ask for a moment of silence for my fallen colleague, Officer Brian Sicknick, who died from injuries he sustained in the line of duty defending the Capitol of our beloved democracy,” Dunn claimed.
The only person actually killed during the events was Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old Air Force vet and Trump supporter who was shot and killed by a Capitol police officer whose name still hasn’t been officially released.
Sicknick’s death, however, was from two strokes, not the violence, the medical examiner confirmed.
“The medical examiner said Sicknick was sprayed with a chemical substance at about 2:20 p.m. on Jan. 6, collapsed at the Capitol at about 10 p.m., and was taken to a local hospital. He died at about 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 7,” the Examiner confirmed.
Officials in Washington – ever since the events – claimed Sicknick was “injured while physically engaging with protesters.”
Metropolitan Police Officer Jeffrey Smith and Capitol Police Officer Howard Liebengood both died by suicide days after the events.
The New York Times, at the time, had perpetuated the story about Sicknick, claiming he was beaten, then died hours later, and that portrayal of events even made it into the impeachment process Democrats immediately launched against President Trump, the second time they failed in their agenda to remove him from office.
The mischaracterization of Sicknick’s death even has been spread by Biden, who claimed he died while “protecting the Capitol.”
American Patriots Uniting to Fight Tyranny from, Well, Everywhere
We’re building a new conservative news network. Based on responses from fellow patriots, we’re heading in the right direction.
It may be hard to believe based on what we’re seeing around the nation today, but there are many reasons to be hopeful. First and foremost, the false narrative that most of America hates traditional values or the foundations of our nation are finally being proven false. Despite the best efforts of globalists and Neo-Marxists, patriotic Americans are starting to unify in droves. Meanwhile, Joe Biden can barely muster a half-filled auditorium to deliver his message to the scant few watching CNN and the paid shills in the “crowd.”
The “silent majority” that drove Donald Trump to victory in 2016 and 2020 (yes, he won by a landslide but was robbed along with the American people) is finally starting to realize we cannot stay silent any longer. We used to win with our votes, but those are being stolen. We used to win with truth, but the radical left and their agents in mainstream media, Big Tech, and academia are building a post-truth society to drown out reality. Today, we are waking up to the realization that only through direct action and fearlessly spreading the truth can we overcome the nefarious forces working against us.
We are proud to be working our way up to the tip of the conservative media spear. Our network is growing. We’re establishing strong partnerships with like-minded news outlets and courageous journalists. Even as Big Tech suppresses us, the honest messages they’re trying to quash are finding their way to the eyes and ears of patriots across the nation. With the help of new content partners like The Epoch Times and The Liberty Daily, we’re starting to see a real impact.
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
Some of our content is spread across all of these sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $2200-$7800 per month. May, 2021, for example, was amazing and we almost broke even. June, revenue was sluggish at best and we had to make up a big difference out of our pockets. But we’re not just trying to get out of the red. If and when we start getting enough contributions to expand, we will do just that. Very few get into journalism to try to get rich and we’re definitely not among those who do. Our success is driven by spreading the truth, profitable or not.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Time is short. As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
