Something totally weird going on here. This happen over two weeks ago and we are just now hearing about it? So that makes two more cops who supposedly killed themselves. What was it they knew and who swore them to silence? Any suicide notes assuming these really were suicides?

Did any of the officers have knowledge of who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt?Does Chief Robert J. Contee III know who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt? Was it a member of the Capitol Police force? Are the facts sealed such that only a select few will ever know who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt?

For what it's worth, the two officers who committed suicide in July were both Washington Metro PD, or police employed by the city who are not part of the U. S. Capitol Police, which is a different outfit that works for Congress, not the people. I agree with those who believe there is something ugly going on in DC, though.

Now we know what the crocodile tear-fest last week in congress was all about. It was cover for these Arkancides - to make these “traumatized” officers’ “suicides” look valid. I wonder. Did they use the Clinton 2 gunshots to the back of the head suicide technique? I got news for you Nancy, just like the latest covid scam, we aren’t buying this.

How is this even possible? Another huge story being ignored by the Luciferian media. And what about the numerous NY City police officers who also committed suicide after viewing images of alleged child sex abuse/torture on Weiner's laptop? It was reported in the NY Post. What was on that laptop? Where is it? Where is Hunter's laptop? There is also an infamous video clip known as "Frazzle drip," but as we know certain people are immune to prosecution for even the most wretched acts. The FBI is a national joke.

While the leftists are blaming PTSD resulting from the "insurrection" for these suicides, I'm wondering if the MPD officers also responded to the 2020 DC riots, which probably also left a few psychological scars.

Don't ask what these officers did on January 6. Ask what they have been doing since then. Have they been guarding political prisoners? Have they been involved in indoctrination (giving or receiving)? If they didn't like what they were doing, why didn't they just quit? They aren't allowed? Half my mind says there is nothing here, while the other half is suspicious.

After watching the Capitol Police Officers testifying at the Pelosi inquisition proceeding targeting Trump, it became rather obvious that the Capitol Police Department has some pretty emotional and unstable individuals employed as police officers. Since as Speaker of the House of Representatives, Pelosi bears the ultimate responsibility for the physical security of the Capitol building, and if the inquisition was on the up and up, you would think that the first witness called to testify, subject to further recall, would have been Pelosi herself!

A federal judge issued a temporary restraining order on Texas Tuesday, blocking Gov. Greg Abbott’s latest get-tough border policy aimed at preventing illegal immigrants from dispersing throughout his state. Judge Kathleen Cardone, a Bush appointee to the bench, said Texas was interfering with the way the federal government wanted to carry out its immigration policy. The two-page ruling is a victory for President Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, giving them a continued free hand in catching and releasing tens of thousands of illegal immigrants each month. Mr. Abbott had said he feared the migrants were spurring a COVID surge, and he flexed state powers

Wisconsin GOP Sen.

During his remarks, he repeatedly downplayed the actions of the mob that took part in the Capitol riot, saying there were 'a couple hundred really bad actors' among thousands he defended. 'By and large those folks were peaceful protesters,' said Johnson, days after four police officers testified about battling crowd members outside the Capitol.

And when press on the data during an appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed that viral load meant the vaccinated were spreading it at the same rate as the unvaccinated. But Fauci would be later proven wrong by a high-ranking Israeli public health official and a former FDA commissioner. CBS moderator John Dickerson began by asking Fauci what new understanding

But until this weekend, Berry would not say if she intended to mount any protests if she medals at the Games in Tokyo. On Sunday, Berry put to rest any questions about her intentions.
