Following an impromptu inspection of the D.C. jail, a federal judge has ordered the release of January 6 defendant, Christopher Worrell, over the mistreatment of detainees. The surprise inspection of the jail by U.S. Marshals took place last month, but the report from the inspection was not made public until Wednesday. Due to the findings, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth said he has “‘zero confidence that the D.C. jail’ will provide the treatment correctly and not retaliate against Worrell,” who has cancer, CNN reported Wednesday.

Considering that ALL of them are being mistreated... Political prisoners, guilty of misdemeanors at the very worst, they ALL should be released.... All but the ANTIFA-FBI-Deep State instigators, that is...

And where is news coverage letting Americans know what’s really going on. A total miscarriage of justice and it seems our DOJ is worth less than a warm bucket or spit.

The Article includes: “I don’t know if it’s because he’s a January 6th defendant or not, but I find this matter should be referred to the attorney general of the United States for a civil rights investigation into whether the D.C. Department of Corrections is violating the civil rights of January 6th defendants … in this and maybe other cases,” Lamberth said. Judge Lamberth, appointed by Ronald Reagan, has been a great judge since 1987. It's been a disgrace that the abuse of the Jan 6 defendants has existed one single day after the abuse was first discovered, which was many months ago. He also said: “It’s more than just inept and bureaucratic shuffling of papers,” Lamberth blasted. “Does no one care? Does no one follow up?” He's 100% correct! Only a few Republican Senators and a few Republican Congressman has said a word about this national disgrace. These Jan. 6 detainees are political prisoners and very few people seem to give a damn, but this abuse could easily happen to each of us. It's far too similiar to 1933 Germany when residents of Germany remained silent and meekly allowed Nazis to abuse Jews, believing the abuse would never happen to them.

Here's the sad fact why the political prisoners on the "Right" are languishing: the majority of members of the Bar are flaming lefties who have little or no allegiance to the Constitution and have no desire to protect and defend the rights of any defendant, equally. This is especially true in such deeply leftist regions of the country as DC, and where a defendant is not in the "acceptable defendant" category. Hubby is a member of the legal defense Bar in the northeast. I can tell you that on the local Bar news blogs there is no righteous indignation expressed for the 1/6/21 political prisoners (or any person or entity on the Conservative or LEO side of things). They have NO curiosity about or interest in the facts of 1/6 and instead abide by silly pontifications coming from biased and stupid pundits on MSNBC etc. Add to this scenario what Durham is finally CONFIRMING which many of us here have known from real investigative journalists that Justice Department entities and agencies colluded with a Dem candidate to, first, bring the defeat of Donald Trump, and second, when he was elected, to bring about the ouster, the overthrow, of the duly elected President... an act of Sedition. And we should note that this ordeal revealed the remarkably STABLE man our President Trump was, through years of torment of false accusations and betrayals and treacheries, and how much he was able to nevertheless accomplish for the benefit of the American people. So, the Justice system is in deep doo-doo. And this leads us back to the education system, all the way back to elementary school (and to infancy if the Dem/Left gets its way) has been utterly corrupted and deformed by the Left, the end goal being the overthrow of our Republic. Like termites which work undetected until the house begins to shudder and collapse, these leftists have been eating away at the Foundations, and our nation is in trouble. More people are waking up. Virginia may be the proverbial shot-in-the-arm to stimulate parents out of their self-indulgent stupor to guard and protect their children and to re-energize their own patriotism. "The price of Liberty is eternal vigilance." It will take this and more to bring education reform which will in the long run revive a legal system to be newly dedicated to the protection of the rights of all Citizens. The matter is urgent.

They say justice delayed is justice denied. In the case of the Jan 6 demonstrators this is painfully true. The treatment of these political prisoners has been deplorable. The abuses at the D.C. jail are more like Stalin's Russia than the United States. Calling the 6 hour demonstration on Jan 6 an insurrection is absurd. The vast majority of the demonstrators were not armed. Unheard of in the history of insurrections.

How about the J6 prisoner at the DC jail, Ryan Samsel, who was brutally beaten by prison guards and lost and eye and suffered brain damage as a result of the beating. Why hasn't he been released. As well as the other prisoners who were dragged out of their cells in the dead of the night and beaten severely. Have Nanie, Chuckie, the Shifter, biden the cheater, Kamalie, and aoc among others spend a night or two at the prison and try it out for size.

Why Judge Lamberth would you send to AG Garland, also known as accuser of parents as domestic terrorists, your report on the D.C. jail holding the J6 prisoners? You do remember that Garland is just a mouth piece for Obama/Biden/Susan Rice/Valeria Jarrett? And others of the 3rd Adm. of Obama? Their hatred of anything connected to President Trump is so deranged that it's in the mentally ill range. A 12 step recovery program for them would be useless. We would suggest Judge Lamberth try to go to someone on the Supreme Court that might care about Civil Rights for those J6 prisoners. GOD HELP THE U.S. IF THESE J6 PRISONERS AREN'T RELEASED SOON. GOD HATES injustice and evil. There is a Day of Reckoning is coming soon. PRAY!

While I agree with the sentiments and frustrations here, we must be slow and patient. The only way that our efforts to get ALL of the peps in jail is to slowly chip away at the lower levels. Start with the DC Jailers, who obviously know a lot of facts.Burn them if you can, and them move up. Each level will dump on the next. No home-runs just lots of serious convictions. Conspiracies should be taxed on to all charges. There's way more of us to raise money to hire the best "Friends of the Court" lawyers.

Supposedly Reps. Gohmert and Taylor-Greene were finally supposed to have been allowed in last night to see and talk to the prisoners. They had been turned away for months. I haven't heard what came of it yet. However, that surprise Marshall visit was still fooled by the jail staff. Apparently, the staff scrambled at the last minute and showed the Marshall those who already had been to court (who had been held in better conditions) first, while a truckload of employees went to where the pre-trial folks were held and did a quick emergency massive cleanup and scrubbing before being inspected. So, the Marshall said the people in the first place they saw should be moved because conditions were deplorable. After seeing the quickly cleaned up section, the Marshall said it wasn't much better but it was ok enough that they didn't need to be moved. They were fooled by the rotten jail staff. If anyone should have moved it was those who had not been ro court yet.

US employers shrugged off virus and stepped

America’s employers accelerated their hiring last month, adding a solid 531,000 jobs, the most since July and a sign that the recovery from the pandemic recession is overcoming a virus-induced slowdown. Friday’s report from the Labor Department also showed that the unemployment rate fell to 4.6% last month from 4.8% in September. That is a comparatively low level though still well above the pre-pandemic jobless rate of 3.5%. And the job gains in August and September weren’t as weak as initially reported: The government increased its estimate of hiring for those two months by a hefty combined 235,000 jobs.  CORRECTION*

The Democrats’ $1.75 trillion social spending bill would massively increase fines imposed on employers for occupational hazards. President Biden’s vaccine mandate will be enforced through such penalties. Businesses with over 100 employees must ensure by Jan. 4 that their workers are either fully vaccinated or undergo weekly COVID-19 testing, according to the mandate, which was finalized Thursday. Fines, enforced through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), could be as high as $14,000 per violation.

Thirteen Republicans voted with the Democrats to pass the infrastructure bill, which passed the Senate August, while six Democrats voted against it.

It is putting a vaccine mandate into place for its more than 26,000 America-based employees, which will require them to get vaccinated, meet a “company-approved” exemption, or take weekly COVID tests. Those employees opposed to the vaccine mandate are pushing back. To that end, they released a powerful video warning, not P&G, but all Americans, what will happen if these employees lose their jobs.

President Biden said the country 'took a monumental step forward' after the House passed the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill with a vote of 228 to 206 on Friday night. The vote late on Friday night is a substantial triumph for Biden's Democrats, who have bickered for months over the ambitious spending bills that make up the bulk of his domestic agenda. Six Democrats, part of the progressive 'Squad' wing of the party, voted against it. The bill had become one of two key pieces of President Joe Biden's and it will now head to his desk for him to sign it into law.
