The criminal prosecution of the opposition has begun. Infowars reporter Owen Shroyer has been indicted by the feds for standing on the steps outside of the Capitol on January 6.

It actually began with the prosecution of Ricky Vaughn, days after the Other Biden took office.

But yeah – the federal government is prosecuting opposition journalists for otherwise legal political protests.

He was standing with Alex Jones, though Alex has yet to be charged. This BuzzFeed article implies that Shroyer moved further up the stairs than Jones – but if they’re now talking about how far up the stairs you were, they can just start charging anyone who was in Washington on the 6th.

These are the photos the media is using to identify his illegal standing:

Nick Fuentes was standing on the same stairs, meaning he’s likely to get hit with the same charges. They dribble these indictments out, in order to build tension.

I don’t think anyone could have imagined that you weren’t allowed to stand on the stairs. But it is likely that they are going to use this as the first big push to start normalizing charging people with crimes for disagreeing with Democrats.

I mean, it’s to be expected. I did expect it, and I’ve been saying it.

This is particularly egregious given that Shroyer is a credentialed journalist, which actually gives him legal status.

Remember all of the photos of the people inside the Capitol itself?

Well, those photos were not taken by cops – journalists followed the protesters into the building. None of them are being charged.

The crackdown is already here, and it has been here since January 6.

But things are on their way to getting really hot.

The coronavirus hoax, and the big pump on that coming this fall, is going to provide cover for a large scale movement against political dissidents.

Obviously, if the feds just start swooping and arresting random people, the obvious thing would be a mass protest. But protests will be banned under Virus Law. They’re also obviously going to be shutting down cities, setting up checkpoints, and intensifying censorship to the point where they’re prosecuting people for posting information about their operations under national security legislation.

Questioning anything about the Virus Regime will be considered an attack on national security.

They are going to throw Alex Jones in prison, probably, and do something to Tucker Carlson. They are also just going to start doing random arrests of random people from the internet and accusing them of being terrorists.

It’s a very good time to lay low.

I hope you’ve all taken what I’ve been saying for the last year and a half seriously, and made good decisions. Because now is the time when you’re going to have to live with those decisions.

I don’t know what to say about this anymore.

I feel like I’m just writing the same thing over and over again.

I’m going to work on something more fun.

    I’m afraid if we do, that will fully and completely ensure a communist victory. Do we wait until they have complete control before opposing them?

  2. Last night Tucker Carlson commented on Shroyer’s arrest warrant, occurring on the same date that the FBI declared that their was no organized conspiracy to overthrow the government on 1/6. Shouldn’t that mean that all those non-conspirators who have been held in horrid conditions in DC jails for months, many just guilty of trespassing or nothing at all, should be granted bail immediately? I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    However, I couldn’t disagree more with Anglin’s advice that “it is a very good time to lay low.” That’s what our side has been doing since Biden’s se-lection, and we’re getting run over. Now is the time to stand up to the growing tyranny, and many people are starting to do it in greater and greater numbers. George Washington didn’t lay low in the face of a tyrannical British King. Only compared to today’s government tyranny, King George was a saint.

    The truth is usually what nobody is saying: if it is said, it certainly won’t be amplified. Narratives that do get amplified may include one aspect of the truth, to the exclusion of the rest of the truth. Just like scientific theories, conspiracy theories can be grounded in evidence, or they can be absurd, or twisted to serve a vested interest. Unfortunately the CIA has trained the public to think of conspiracy theories as universally false, and when anyone puts forward an evidence based conspiracy theory, that person is then assumed by the public to believe in all conspiracy theories. Bring up the Apollo hoax and you will promptly be labeled a flat earther. This is why the CIA goes around making absurd conspiracy theories, to promote and enforce their tenet that all conspiracy theories are false.

    Anyway, I think the truth of COVID 19 is what some would consider mutually exclusive: that the virus leaked from a lab, AND the pandemic has been a hoax. Consider the 2020 election season. The first wave of COVID had peaked in August, when California was doing ~150k tests per day. CA started increasing its testing rate again the first week of September and continued increasing it until Biden was inaugurated, when it peaked at ~450k tests per day. In other words, they tripled the testing rate. During this same period, the positivity also tripled, from 5% to 15%+. Amazingly, the increase in positivity rate also peaked on Inauguration Day.

    One could argue that the increasing positivity rate motivated the increased testing rate, but the result was still a total misrepresentation of pandemic growth. Cases and deaths went up by a factor of *9* when the disease was only *3* times more prevalent (assuming the PCR tests, which determine the positivity rate, are always consistent, which we know they are not). The more likely explanation is that the positivity rate and the testing rate were both purposefully pumped up after the election, and purposely deflated once Biden was in office. Without a steady testing rate and fixed PCR rate, we cannot rely on statistics to gauge the severity of the pandemic. They are manufactured numbers.

    You can observe the same pattern with the “Delta” wave: our testing rate has tripled since the beginning of June, while the positivity rate went from ~2% to ~7%. So instead of seeing a 4x jump in cases, we saw a 12x jump. You will also note how the positivity rate absolutely plummeted once Biden was inaugurated, dropping about eightfold by March 1 before vaccines were widely available.

    There are dark, malignant authoritarian forces within a hairs breadth of seizing total control of the US government. That is when the real nightmare will begin. Who are these anti-Christs?

  6. There need to be two proper investigations around this, conducted by independent parties, that need to occur for the American public.

    The first is in the Populus side. Which of the demonstrators were targets of ongoing FBI surveillance/investigations, and which were informants, and which were outright undercover agents. This information should not be allowed to be kept secret.

    The second is on the Governance side. Why was there such a massive LEO failure here? Particularly, where were the reinforcements? And what delayed them from coming?

    As the FBI has finally admitted, the vast majority of those people came to DC to protest at the behest of the president, followed the crowd, and were just looking for the keg when they went in the building. The small number of obvious provacateurs should be the focus. The Orwellian crack down on the rest is a bad omen for this great country.

    NWO Bolsheviks running the USA are not going to back off –listen to one who lived their evil before:

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?

    Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?…

    The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

    Broadly speaking, most people in the police and military are conservative Whites. All of these people have families, friends and communities that support them. But what if they didn’t?

    What if, instead of “thanking them for their service” when they walk into a restaurant, people hissed and booed and the wait staff treated them rudely?

    What if friends and family members asked them not to call or visit anymore because they don’t feel safe talking to them or spending time with them?

    What if other parents forbade their kids from playing with the kids of cops and soldiers?

    What if pastors and priests told their congregation that soldiers and cops are no longer welcome because people don’t feel safe being around them?

    Shunning has been one of the most powerful and effective punishments people have used on outcasts since the beginning of time because it’s so effective.

  10. The (anti-Trump/anti-white/anti-constitution) GlobalHomo/BLM/CRT/ZIO cops are trying their damndest to incite patriots to the point of a real insurrection, where we just say ‘fuck it, lock and load, we aren’t taking anymore of this police state bs’.

    They don’t have the infrastructure to arrest and detain millions of patriots. They know we will be coming for them, and they will receive the culling they so deserve.

    I’m not scared, intimidated or threatened one bit by what they’re doing. I’m afraid of what I may be forced to do to them.

  11. @Supply and Demand

    Better idea: Let’s arrest all those who have criminally used the levers of power under the color of authority. This includes severe prosecution for domestic propaganda operations. Paid operatives will not have “it was my job” as an excuse.

    That should thin out the riff-raff. The hobbyist (as I suspect you are) ought to be careful as they are difficult to distinguish from the professional. After all, trolling isn’t exactly rocket science. And this one was particularly lame.

  12. I don’t want to spend 10 hours sifting via TOR through Daily Stormer articles from last Fall/Winter, if it’s even possible, but I was a regular reader and have a mild to good recollection that Anglin reversed course after the Selection and urged all to get in streets and resist tangibly yet peacefully; an action he’d been deriding was stated to have been converted to necessity, because voting was dead.

    Is that a false recollection?

    It must be frustrating for Anglin to be mostly right all the time, including predictions, yet be treated as a clod by stodgy dullards like so many at UR. However, did he simply repeat, out of desperation, the same mistake he acknowledges from Charlottesville?

    He’s usually right, and I think he’s providing valuable nuggets for contemplation re today’s state of crime. Was he wrong to encourage walking into a trap on 6 Jan? Did he do that?

    I know that I don’t feel remotely calm about exploring DS openly (standard internet connection) to figure out if my impression of his writing is wrong. Being here is bad enough.

  13. It’s stupid to fight to occupy a building in DC that’s targeted with nukes. Its fast-tracking it will all be radioactive rubble sooner then everyone thinks. How soon? Well it happens slowly at first, then all at once.

    I read an assessment published in the early 80s when a practice evacuation on Washington DC was proposed by the Reagan administration. The evacuation was called off when West Virginia warned that the people responsible for causing a nuclear attack would not be welcome there. Other states followed suit. The message? Stay there and take your medicine.

    What was the medicine? In the District of Colombia and Arlington-Northern Virginia, estimates that at least twenty-five over-lapping nukes would hit every major federal target. Not one nuke. Many.

    With this knowledge, knowing that all that grandeur will ultimately be blown to kingdom come, or at least as far away as Baltimore and Annapolis, only a fool would want to be sitting there.

    Sitting at the Friday concerts on the West Capitol steps forty plus years ago, I recall pointing out to friends that it would all be rubble one day. Ruins I’d tell them. Absolute ruins. I also used to also point this out at night walking home from the bars past the grand illuminated edifice.

    All these things will be taken away. Me and lots of other Punks in DC said the same thing forty years ago.

    The Russians used to test big, effing nukes in the arctic. BIG. The Czar Bomb was early in the JFK presidency (maybe the reason Boy Jack wanted a Test Ban Treaty so bad?) and American measuring stations tracked that sucker at 200 MEGATONS!

    The number was quickly corrected to “between 50-60 megatons” but I think that was just to settle the Cold War jitters. Even so, 60 megatons would give us Potomac Lake.

    My undergrad classmates (Georgetown late 1970s) consist of very high percentage of Mid to Upper Level Federal apparatchniks and consultants. About 70 of us are in a wide ranging, oft boisterous email group. In mid-January, one of the group emailed a article questioning the validity of the election. The responses were illuminating.

    Every single one of my classmates associated with the Federal Government responded with observations that they saw nothing untoward with the vote. Every single one of these apparatchniks parroted a similar party line. Their tone was odd.

    My apparatchnik classmates knew intuitively, post-Jan 6th, there would be a night-of-the-long-knives. Anyone even remotely suspected of questioning the new regime would be cast out or rounded up.

    I fail to understand why anyone would voluntarily take a rigged PCR test unless they are forced to to keep their job. (We never hear about what percentage of the population haven’t even been tested, making all these Covid statistics worthless).

    Even capitulation to the test is doomed to failure, as they will be forced to quarantine for up to two week if they test positive, then have to be tested again to return to work. Finally, as the screws tighten, the next required step will be: take the dope or find another job. Good luck finding one.

    “…assuming the PCR tests, which determine the positivity rate, are always consistent, which we know they are not…”
    Even the CDC finally acknowledged that the PCR results are absolutely meaningless, but they will still keep using them til January. Any charts, any conversation based on PCR are meaningless, wipe them right out of how you are thinking about this whole ‘pandemic’ thing. You have to just throw them out and look at what remains.
    Spend a bit more time at CDC on the stats of the vax. The vax campaign should have been stopped long ago. It should never have begun, this is a live test with all the jabbed as guinea pigs. Why do they desperately not want a control group of the unvaxxed to exist? Why would they want people with superior natural immunity to take the vax, as it destroys their convalescent plasma? Why all the miscoding of cause of death, or preventing doctors using effective, old, cheap drugs? And relegating eminent clinicians and researchers to posting on YT, Rumble, or their own websites? The info being put out by the MSM is not the truth, it is an actual disinfo campaign; we have a psy-op in addition to the vax assault on health.
    We tend to think of a vax as being an actual sterilizing vaccine that prevents infection, which this is not. There is not even a whole virus to study anywhere, much less attenuate and put in a vaccine. The spike protein is the true pandemic, and they have made the body to produce it. This continued use of the jab, and now calling for boosters, will only drive the selection of further variants. Which they cynically and falsely blame on the unvaxxed.

    they really want to call it an insurrection for optics and their political agenda. I have a sibling who thinks there were people in the front of the crowd who really would have strung up Pelosi and the VP if they could have gotten their hands on them. I have a hard time seeing that they would have gone that far, and the noose was a prop.
    I am quite certain there were people who got up to the top of the stairs and even into the building who had no idea they were breaking any laws, and any signage to keep out would have been pushed over before they got up there.
    It is a slippery slope to prosecute journalists, but Assange has been languishing for years and all we do is talk about it.

What if those people that went to DC on 1-06, instead of going home, went to one their member’s farm and hunkered down with cash and gold and arms and prepper supplies? About 400 of them. Would the FBI take on all 400 of them as a group? Are there any among us who would have sent food or drink to sustain them?

    Commenters are debating whether to lay low or stick your neck out. My advice would be if people make a point to make it a smart move with a plan. What was the plan for 01-06? To go home like sitting ducks and realize it was for nothing?

    I think the gov’t would welcome the opportunity to put down a rebellion by white supremacist terrorists, anti vax, constitution spouting, gun toting anarchist lunatics. The media would make sure that all those people are not principled men and women, but raging violent deranged thugs and the bulk of the US population would cheer the Feds on.

    That’s the sorry state of the country, I’m afraid. The propaganda effort has been applied for so long and with such intensity that the bulk of the population is too stupid to know they’re being had, again.

    Are there any among us who would have sent food or drink to sustain them?

    The intent wouldn’t matter as there would be no opportunity to ferry in supplies as the entire area would be surrounded.

    The only option the decent people have of changing the current direction is to destroy the economy and the Fed Gov and Federal Reserve with it. Violence or the threat of violence would be an invitation the gov’t is dreaming about because they would have the upper hand and complete control over the narrative.

    I recommend people remove their support in any way they can by no longer voting, quitting their jobs and retiring early if the can, legally getting on as many entitlement programs as possible, stop the idiocy of thanking the troops and backing the blue, etc. People need to quietly throw sand into the gears that keep the country operating. About 10% of the population could crater the entire thing.

This is why so much wanton destruction was conducted by the Union.

    Some ‘boomer conservatives’ continue to believe that a republic still exists.
