Next week, a young college student will face a federal judge in Washington, D.C., at a sentencing hearing over his nonviolent participation in the Jan. 6 Capitol rally. UCLA undergrad Christian Secor was arrested last February and spent more than a month in solitary confinement. Think about that.

Unlike the weekly parade of repeat violent criminal rapists, robbers, pedophiles and murderers across the country with massive rap sheets who enjoy a no-bail revolving door, Christian had never, ever been in trouble with the law before his arrest.

The un-American Department of Injustice has made life hell for hundreds of peaceful Trump rally participants — locking them up, throwing away the key, harassing their families, withholding evidence and obliterating their constitutional rights to stifle dissent, punish the Democrats’ political enemies and weaponize J6 till kingdom come. Don’t take my word for it. A D.C. magistrate overseeing some of the cases, Zia Faruqui, decried the gargantuan prosecutions of nearly 900 defendants, including at least two Americans who were left to languish in custody after being “lost” for weeks without scheduled hearings.

“It feels like the government has bitten off more than it can chew here,” Faruqui complained in March.

Yes, the vengeful federal beast has an insatiable appetite and bottomless resources to ruin lives. The D.C. witch-hunt prosecutors threw a pile of charges at Christian that made sensational headlines, including “assaulting, resisting or impeding officers,” as liberal National Public Radio reported. Christian pleaded not guilty to all charges in March 2021 but, 14 wearying months later, entered an agreement to plead guilty to a single felony charge of “obstructing a federal proceeding.”

Here is what I wrote to the judge in Christian’s case, the Honorable Trevor McFadden, to share what I know about this bright young man as he faces up to 20 years in prison next week.

Dear Judge McFadden,

My name is Michelle Malkin and I am writing on behalf of Christian Secor, whom you will sentence on October 19, 2022. I am a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist, investigative journalist, author of 7 books, campus speaker, and mentor to countless young conservative activists across the country for the past 30 years.

In November 2019, I first met Christian before giving a speech at UCLA sponsored by the Bruin Republicans. I instantly found him to be polite, witty, and highly intelligent. He demonstrated broad and deep knowledge of world affairs. We share similar perspectives as passionate defenders of American sovereignty and unapologetic nationalism. I saw or communicated with Christian several times between the fall of 2019 and the fall of 2020. He was constructively engaged in student activism on campus locally and in helping to unite conservative students nationally on immigration and public health and safety issues as the pandemic era erupted.

ORDER IT NOW

Knowing my love of the outdoors, Christian sent me a beautiful mountain and rainbow photo from his summer 2020 vacation in flyover country. He thoughtfully messaged to wish me happy birthday in October 2020. Four months later, I learned of his arrest and the shocking 40 days he spent in solitary confinement.

A non-violent college kid with zero criminal record held in isolation for 40 days? This isn’t the America my immigrant parents from the Philippines thought they were getting when they left an authoritarian regime that jailed political opponents and punished student activists.

Never in any of my conversations or interactions with Christian did he ever express support for violence.

Never in any of my conversations or interactions with Christian did he ever express any sentiments of “racism,” “Nazism,” “white supremacy,” “fascism,” or “insurrection.”

As a veteran journalist who has worked in newspapers and on TV for the past three decades, as well as an Internet entrepreneur who founded two influential political news and opinion websites, I am deeply disturbed by the distorted media profiles of Christian that have baselessly savaged his character and transformed him from a peacefully provocative student activist into some sort of dangerous agent provocateur. This is patently untrue and unjust.

I understand Christian has pled guilty to one felony charge of “obstructing a federal proceeding.”

I also understand that Christian did not bring any weapons, touch an officer, or ignore any police requests. I understand he walked in a door that Capitol police opened and then stepped aside. I understand that after entering the main Senate floor, he was told by a police officer to leave — and he dutifully complied.

Judge McFadden, I ask that justice be served in Christian’s case by granting him probation and allowing this 24-year-old to continue his educational pursuits in freedom instead of continuing to serve as a political scapegoat behind bars. Thank you for considering this letter of support.

Pray for sanity and justice to prevail in this case and so many others still suffering in solitude and silence. End-stage America’s victims are legion.

    Complete hogwash. That may be the totalitarian hellhole you have wet dreams about, but you can demonstrate peacefully (as the VAST majority did on J6) and not be charged with a ridiculous guilt-by-association charge like that. By your logic, everyone participating in the Floyd riots (which did magnitudes more damage than J6 and included attempted mass assaults on the White House and numerous Federal buildings and police stations) should also be thrown in jail...even if they were just walking around yelling annoying BLM chants.

  5. The overreaction to simple trespass by the feds is going to have long-term consequences. It’s already turned a lot of people against the FBI, people who used to have good will towards them, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some have become more militant or even revolutionary because of these show trials. In the past, overreactions by governmental authorities have resulted in terrorism, revolution and even government’s being overthrown. French revolution, Russian revolution are easy examples of this. A thick-headed bureaucracy is unable to learn from the past. They are sowing trouble.

  6. Never in any of my conversations or interactions with Christian did he ever express any sentiments of “racism,” “Nazism,” “white supremacy,” “fascism,” or “insurrection.”

    And so what if he did? This used to be America. In the America I grew up in I’ve heard people say all kinds of things and people used to respond by saying “It’s a free country, he/she is entitled to their opinion. But no longer. Now you must express semitically correct sentiments or else.

    I have little confidence in judge Trevor McFadden. If he were truly an honest judge he would have thrown this case and many others related to January 6th out of court and chastised the DOJ and FBI. But like almost all judges he seeks higher judicial office, so he is playing along with this charade.

  7. I challenge Michelle or any reader to name even one white “repeat violent” rapist, pedophile, or murderer with a “massive rap sheet” who was released with no bail and not prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced to prison.

    We live in a country in which the criminal injustice system is perverted and politicized by blacks and anti-white leftists of all races and defended as “justice” and “equity.” Thus, increasingly, grotesquely draconian penalties are inflicted on Jan. 6 protesters who committed no acts of violence or other felonies while violent and/or recidivist black criminals are not sentenced to prison or even prosecuted by Soros-funded leftist DAs.

    Thus, in the name of “equity” and “justice,” significantly fewer violent and/or recidivist black criminals will be sentenced to prison, and those who are sentenced to prison will receive far shorter sentences and will often be granted “early release,” while far more whites who are despised by blacks and leftists, including first offenders convicted of nonviolent and often victimless and malum prohibitum felonies, will be sentenced to prison for longer periods of time.

  12. **Sarcasm Alert!**

    I love it when foreigners come to the USA and start telling Americans how our country “should” be and what we Americans “should” do. They can do this because they or their parents fled the responsibility of making their own country better to feed off of what generations of Americans built here. What is the justification for these foreigners giving us all of this advice? There are a few. One is that they went to publicly funded schools and turned in all of their homework, so they were then selected to go “study” at publicly funded colleges or universities to continue the process of turning in all of their homework. This allowed them to be selected for coveted positions as propagandists on the corporate media and on the private foundations circuit. It truly is the life of Riley. The second thing is that dumb White cuck-servatives believe the tripe these foreigners are spewing because at least their rhetoric is anti-Black. If one’s rhetoric is decidedly against the interests of the Black descendants of American slaves, then you can rattle of any allegedly profound talking points to give the goyim their daily dose of detritus in the form of “political commentary”.

    I have been to many countries around the world and many of them have immigrants living there. The one difference between “Western” countries on immigration policy and other countries is that in non-Western countries immigrants have no rights, and they definitely have no privileges over natural born citizens. They have no political representation, they can’t vote, and native citizens get consideration for the best jobs and spots in universities first over so-called “more talented & hard-working” foreigners. One would think if we accepted the canard of meritocracy that this results in these sorts of countries not being run very well. However, the opposite is true. They run just as well as the USA used to, and the best part is that when the foreigners turn 55-65 years old, they have to go back to their own countries. No citizenship, no permanent residency for sale, no state provided retirement funds, no chain migration, no overrunning the cities with cultural ghettos of Chinese, Filipinos, Somalis, etc.

    The simple fact is that the anti-Black sentiment among white Americans is what allowed the Jews to take over the political economy in the USA and allowed immigrants to eventually supplant whites themselves, all the while, whites still claim that “This is their country”. Dream on…!

    You are correct. The "deep state" has (finally) exposed itself. Many of us have known all along that the American "government" was always corrupt to the core, but as long as they left "us" alone, they could go on with their mechanations and other scams. One only has to observe every federal politician who enters elected office as a pauper and within a few years emerges a millionaire.
    The January 6, political prisoners are indeed "between a rock and a hard place". The next bunch will not be so forgiving. Problems arise as those on the right are not prone to destruction of buildings and by inference civilized society.
    The seeds of the 2020 "summer of love" riots were sown during the O'bama administration with leftists being installed in local, state and federal posts, especially those in the judicial systems--prosecutors, judges, etc. where they could do the most damage. All one has to do is observe the breakdown of civil society during the 2020 "summer of love" when almost no one was arrested for rioting. In fact, pallet loads of bricks were strategically placed where the "peaceful protesters" could get to them.
    The 2020 "summer of love" riots were the beginning of a marxist revolution which is still not recognized as such.
    Federal agencies are now "weaponized" and not only encouraged, but are mandated to go after "dissenters", now named "terrorists". Ask "attorney general" merrick garland (nee garfinkle) about THAT.
    The FBI actively going after pro-life protesters, those who were let into the Capitol, and others who merely expressed their concerns about rampant vote fraud, or speaking up about the perverted homosexual, LGBTQXYZ and "transgender" agendas being pushed on vulnerable school children by "public school" officials is but a large part of the marxist plan.
    Their aim is to prosecute those who participate in Constitutionally protected speech that does not agree with their marxist agenda.
    There was a time when federal agencies were prohibited from commenting on purely political processes and decisions. That all changed in the 1980s with the "war on (some) drugs" when federal agencies were finally allowed to comment on pending legislation.


    "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 goodbye 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 in 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 . . ."

Many of us have known all along that the American “government” was always corrupt to the core, but as long as they left “us” alone, they could go on with their mechanations and other scams. One only has to observe every federal politician who enters elected office as a pauper and within a few years emerges a millionaire.
    The January 6, political prisoners are indeed “between a rock and a hard place”. The next bunch will not be so forgiving. Problems arise as those on the right are not prone to destruction of buildings and by inference civilized society.
    The seeds of the 2020 “summer of love” riots were sown during the O’bama administration with leftists being installed in local, state and federal posts, especially those in the judicial systems–prosecutors, judges, etc. where they could do the most damage. All one has to do is observe the breakdown of civil society during the 2020 “summer of love” when almost no one was arrested for rioting. In fact, pallet loads of bricks were strategically placed where the “peaceful protesters” could get to them.
    The 2020 “summer of love” riots were the beginning of a marxist revolution which is still not recognized as such.
    Federal agencies are now “weaponized” and not only encouraged, but are mandated to go after “dissenters”, now named “terrorists”. Ask “attorney general” merrick garland (nee garfinkle) about THAT.
    The FBI actively going after pro-life protesters, those who were let into the Capitol, and others who merely expressed their concerns about rampant vote fraud, or speaking up about the perverted homosexual, LGBTQXYZ and “transgender” agendas being pushed on vulnerable school children by “public school” officials is but a large part of the marxist plan.
    Their aim is to prosecute those who participate in Constitutionally protected speech that does not agree with their marxist agenda.
    There was a time when federal agencies were prohibited from commenting on purely political processes and decisions. That all changed in the 1980s with the “war on (some) drugs” when federal agencies were finally allowed to comment on pending legislation.

    “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 goodbye 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 in 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 . . .”

  23. So this demonstration happened about 21 months ago and now; just weeks away from the midterms, the US House Select Committee hearing to Investigate the January 6 ‘incident’ comes to a decision to subpoena Donald Trump in the middle of a hugely important election?
    Well they certainly got their timing right but anyone can see that this was probably planned from way back to damage the Donald and any candidate he supports in this election. Also to destroy the reputation of anyone who supported him in the last election.
    That is very dirty politics.

  24. EXPOSING JAN 6 LIES: Ray Epps, AGENT or A-HOLE?!

  25. It’s kind of amazing (well, actually it isn’t) that Jan 6 is not recognized for what it really was- a Democrat murderfest. It was the biggest one day massacre of unarmed protesters in the US since Kent State in 1970. The four killed: Ashley Babbitt, Rosanne Boyland, Kevin Greeson and Benjamin Phillips. The last two were the first and second to die when cops began firing flashbang explosive devices deep into the crowd for some unknown reason and without warning/orders to disperse. Witnesses say both were hit by the devices and died shortly thereafter. The video of Boyland’s final minutes indicates she was likely trampled or beaten to death. The ME claimed she died of the medication she took every day for years, but no second autopsy was possible since her body was cremated shortly after the autopsy. Those interested can most easily access the relevant videos at the Tayler Hansen substack.
