FBI boss Christopher Wray denies Capitol
riot taken more seriously than 2020 riots

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 2/3/2022 7:44:33 PM

FBI Director Christopher Wray claimed the FBI is working just as hard to punish participants in the 2020 George Floyd riots as those involved in the Capitol riot, though neither the numbers nor his own boss's words seem to back him up. Wray made the improbable claim in response to questions during an appearance earlier this week at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. “I mean, absolutely," Wray said. "We have one standard, which is, I don’t care whether you’re upset about an election, upset about our criminal justice system, whatever it is you’re upset about, there is a right way and a wrong way to express what you’re upset

That's why hundreds of BLM/Antifa rioters are locked up right now not knowing when their cases will be heard, right Chris?

There was no riot. There is no video of it because there was no riot. The Capitol riot cannot be taken more seriously than 2020 riots because there was no Capitol riot.

This unbelievable injustice makes me so angry I can’t even gather my thoughts together. Our Republican leadership has ignored these men. They do not want to know the truth because they are part of the wretched deep state that continue to carry out this travesty of Justice. They are nothing but cold hearted sons of guns whose only goal is to protect the ruling class and status quo and they are happy to let these men suffer. I cannot loathe McConnell and McCarthy more than I already do. It is they who have delivered this country into the hands of this totalitarian cabal.

It would be interesting to see some statistics comparing arrests and prosecutions of BLM riots vs. J6. This would necessarily include property damage in $$, injuries and deaths. The problem these days is that with the corruptly biased MSM, some way to disseminate the results would have to be invented. Normally, to successfully address crimes, several elements are required: law enforcement arrests, honest prosecutors, and honest journalists to keep the pressure on the aforementioned. The perception is that none of these elements are effected in the BLM cases, whereas all are abundantly present in the J6 case.

Quite obviously, the man is either lying or too ignorant to hold such a position. I doubt he's that totally lacking in that specific knowledge; after all, if FBI agents were so blatantly observed during the January 6th 'riot/insurrection' doing their very best to incite the crowds in DC, they had to have had the same type of individuals doing the same thing with BLM & Antifa. They had far more success with the leftist activists, as we've seen but not with those patriots who were in attendance over a year ago in DC. Christopher Wray has a lying leftist narrative & he's sticking to it..

The US State Department is waiving sanctions on Iran's civilian nuclear program in the hope that Tehran will return to the 2015 nuclear agreement, a senior official said Friday.As U.S. negotiators head back to Vienna for what could be a make-or-break session, Secretary of State Antony Blinken signed several sanctions waivers related to Iran's civilian nuclear activities. The move reverses the Trump administration's decision to rescind them. The resumption of the waiver, ended by Trump in 2020, 'would be essential to ensuring Iran's swift compliance' if a new deal on controlling Tehran's nuclear program can be reached in talks in Vienna, the State Department official said

A new study from Johns Hopkins University’s Institute for Applied Economics supports what I and others have long maintained: lockdowns do not work, and their economic, social, educational, and psychological costs far outweigh any health benefits they might bring.Early in the pandemic, epidemiological modelers predicted catastrophic casualties that could be averted only with stringent lockdown measures. In response, nearly every country around the world imposed lockdown measures by the end of March 2020. Yet little evidence existed to support such actions, and the modeling studies were fatally flawed.

“Progressive” caucus leader Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) accused Israel of “war crimes” shortly after visiting Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial, prompting then-U.S. Ambassador David Friedman to walk out of a meeting with her in 2018.The story is told in Friedman’s new memoir, Sledgehammer: How Breaking with the Past Brought Peace to the Middle East, set to be released on February 8 by HarperCollins.Friedman was opposed by many Democrats, but met with congressional delegations when they came to Israel — except, he notes, left-wing Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), whom Israel barred because of an Israeli law preventing those who advocate boycotts of Israel from entering the country.

A new super-mutant HIV strain that makes infected individuals ill twice as fast as current versions of the virus has been detected in the Netherlands. The new mutant—called the VB variant—has infected at least 109 people, according to a study by Oxford University. The strain damages the immune system and weakens a person's ability to fight everyday infections and disease faster than previous versions of the virus. It means those who catch this strain could develop AIDS more quickly. The VB variant also has a viral load between 3.5 and 5.5 times higher than the current strain, meaning infected people are more likely to transmit the virus

Sixteen members of the University of Pennsylvania women’s swim team sent a letter to the school and to the Ivy League, asking them not to take legal action that would challenge the new NCAA rules for transgender athletes to compete. The new rules would make it very difficult for their trans teammate, Lia Thomas, to compete as a female.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday urged US athletes competing in the Beijing Winter Olympics to keep mum on China’s human rights abuses because the country’s government is “ruthless.”Pelosi issued the warning during testimony at a Congressional-Executive Commission on China. She acknowledged the US has a moral obligation to condemn the rights violations – but insisted the Olympic games were not the proper venue for athletes to voice their concerns.“If we do not speak out against human rights violations in China, because of commercial interests, we lose all moral authority to speak out against human rights violations anywhere,” Pelosi said.

Attorney-turned-criminal Michael Avenatti was convicted Friday of swiping nearly $300,000 in book-advance money from his then-client Stormy Daniels. The now twice-convicted felon — and one time rising star — now faces a maximum of 22 years in prison for his conviction on wire fraud and aggravated identity theft charges. A sentencing date has not yet been set. Throughout the trial, prosecutors painted Avenatti, 50, as a calculating thief who stole two book-advance payments from Daniels in 2018 that totaled nearly $300,000. The porn star, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, inked a book deal that year with St. Martin’s Press after it was revealed she was paid $130,000

I'm sure you are aware the border is going to be an issue, also President Biden promised immigration reform he hasn't been able to deliver. Why would you say Latinos should vote for the Democrats this November?' Harris sidestepped the question, instead saying that 'Congress is not acting' on immigration.(Snip)'The way our democracy works is you need a majority and sometimes in the Senate you need 60
