Representative Massie questions Merrick Garland on 6 January FBI infiltrators
AZ Central reports Representative Massie’s use of a 6 January video during hearings with Merrick Garland.
One Arizona man who appeared prominently in videos from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot — but has never been charged — returned to prominence this week when those videos were replayed in Congress.
A video of Queen Creek resident Ray Epps was shown by U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky during a House oversight hearing where lawmakers questioned Attorney General Merrick Garland about the attack on the Capitol.
Massie used the video as occasion to ask Garland not just about Epps, but about the belief that federal agents were present and agitating people before the riot.
One video shows Epps telling people on Jan. 5 they need to go into the U.S. Capitol. Other video shows him directing them on Jan. 6 toward the historic building.
Massie showed video and images of Epps during the hearing, then asked Garland, “as far as we can find, this individual has not been charged with anything. You said this is one of the most sweeping investigations in history.”
Garland responded that the U.S. Department of Justice does not comment on pending investigations, especially particular scenes or individuals.
“Can you tell us — without talking about particular incidents or particular videos — how many agents or assets of the federal government were present on January 6? Whether they agitated to go into the Capitol and if any of them did?
“I’m not going to comment on an investigation that’s ongoing,” Garland responded.

I have posted recently on this issue; however, attention to this is only beginning
For over three years, we have endured burning of Democrat havens like Seattle, Detroit, Portland, and other liberal notables, but it obviously has not sunk into the collective psyche of the nation. Nobody notices.
Now, over the past few weeks, this blog and innumerable other conservative outlets look into the possible connections between Ray Epps and the FBI. This must have hit a liberal nerve, since The Hill is calling those who make note of this “right-wing conspiracy theorists.”
Have we been scammed? There seems to be odd connections between Ray Epps, the Oath Keepers, the FBI, and the 6 January protest
100 Percent Fed Up questions the identity of Ray Epps, the relation of the Oath Keepers to the FBI, and why Epps worked so hard to get people to go inside the Capitol on 6 January.
Speaking of scams…Who is Ray Epps? And why did he spend two days inciting Trump supporters to go inside the Capitol?
Here’s what we know.
Ray Epps was the president of the Oath Keepers in Arizona.
Mr. Epps worked alongside the Oath Keeper Founder and President Stewart Rhodes.
On Memorial Day 2011, Oath Keepers held a memorial service for a fallen member. Epps and Rhodes stood side-by-side for much of the memorial service.
Epps can be seen standing behind Stewart Rhodes while Taps is being played.
Since then, Epps has been relatively quiet but has recently been ID’d by Revolver News as one of the primary influencers in the January 6th “insurrection.”
The night before the “insurrection,” Epps appeared to be encouraging Trump supporters gathered near BLM Square in Washington DC to join him, as he announced that he planned to go “inside the Capitol.” Epps told an unidentified male (fed agent?) “In fact, tomorrow—I’m not even gonna say it because I might be arrested, but tomorrow—We need to go IN to the Capitol!” Trump supporters who could smell a rat shout, “Fed…Fed…Fed!”
On January 6th, Epps stood in front of a piece of heavy machinery, shouting at Trump supporters, “We are going to the Capitol, where our problems are,” he yelled. “It’s that direction!” he said, pointing. He encouraged the Trump supporters to tell everyone, “Please spread the word,” he implored.
As protesters first reach the Capitol, where Epps has been encouraging them to go for two days, they began to confront the scant number of police officers standing near low-security barriers. A young man wearing a black t-shirt and red MAGA cap can be seen engaging with police officers at the barriers. Suddenly, out of nowhere, Ray Epps appears and whispers in the ear of Ryan Samsel, a PA resident with an extensive violent criminal background. Epps seems to know to target Samsel, as he whispers in his ear. Almost immediately afterward, Samsel begins to push down the barriers, allowing protesters to run through the barriers and onto the Capitol grounds. Epps disappears.
Here’s Epps re-appearing with the protesters as they march toward the Capitol:

2. The protection of our children
A boy wearing a skirt rapes a girl and the boy gets protected due to it being “Pride month”
Townhall comments on the rapes committed by a boy wearing a skirt and protected by the school district by not initially reporting the first crime.
It’s no longer just conservative news outlets and local activists finally realizing they can no longer ignore the rape allegations that are haunting the Loudoun County School District. But, there are still some who haven’t woken up enough just yet, and then are gaslighting everybody else for it.
Perhaps most disturbing of all is that this includes the commonwealth’s governor, Democrat Ralph Northam, who actually signed into law House Bill 257, which allows the school district to decide for itself if it’s going to alert law enforcement about misdemeanors, including sexual battery.
This revelation comes from reporting by Scott Taylor for 7 News, with the headline of “Gov. Ralph Northam silent as Virginia law on schools reporting crimes is under scrutiny.” Taylor tried to reach out to Gov. Northam for comment, but says he was turned away by Renzo Olivari, who works for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s campaign.
According to Taylor:
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam signed the bill into law. In Arlington on Friday I-Team Investigative Reporter Scott Taylor attempted to ask Northam if he still thought the law was a great idea.
After the Governor answered two questions from other media outlets, Renzo Olivari, a member of former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe’s media team blocked 7 News from asking any questions.
“Awesome. Ok, thank you very much,” says Renzo Olivari with McAuliffe’s media team.
“Governor, I would like to ask you one question. I want to ask you about Loudon County why are you,” asked Scott Taylor.
“I got to get back,” said Governor Northam.
“Why are you not allowing us to ask a question? You deliberately didn’t allow 7 News to ask a question? Why is that?” asked Taylor to Oliviari.
A few moments later.
“Thanks, everybody. Thanks for coming,” says Olivari.
“You came over earlier and asked if I have questions. Can you explain why you ignored those questions?” asks Taylor.
“Thank you,” says Olivari.
Not deterred, Taylor says they reached out to governor’s office:
After the Governor didn’t answer our questions we reached out to the governor’s office asking the governor to answer the following questions:
- Last year you signed a bill into law that gave school officials the ability not to report misdemeanor sex crimes to law enforcement, which created less transparency for parents and students. In light of two recent alleged sex crimes by the same student in Loudon County Public Schools, can you explain to parents and students why you believe that law was a great idea?
- With that lack of transparency on a laundry list of crimes not having to be reported to law enforcement, why should parents believe schools are safe in Virginia?
HB 257 passed 46-44 in the House of Delegates, and 28-11 in the State Senate, with substitution.
As Brett Hall reported in February 2020 for WAVY, another local outlet, “Republicans call on Gov. Northam to veto bill that would stop requiring schools to report misdemeanor crimes to police.” Hall noted in his reporting that the governor’s office did not respond with comment in time for the article’s publication.
Gov. Northam approved of the legislation on March 12, 2020. It went into effect on July 1, 2020.
Local parent, Scott Smith, is alleging that his ninth-grade daughter was raped in the bathroom by a biological boy wearing a skirt.

This is nothing but the reinstitution of Obama’s get-out-of-jail-free program
This is nothing but a a transsexual twist on the reimplementation of Obama’s PROMISE program that resulted in the Parkland shootings. Bleeding heart liberals want to forgive criminals of things that do not happen to the liberals.
Additionally, in reference to the last quoted paragraph, two girls were violated by this boy wearing a skirt. First, Smith’s daughter was accosted in a bathroom. Then, after the school district tried to “handle the matter internally” by transferring the boy to another school, a girl was victimized in a classroom.
Loudoun County Schools tried to conceal multiple sexual assaults
The Daily Wire reviews how Loudoun County schools tried to conceal the sexual assault against Scott Smith’s daughter.
On June 22, Scott Smith was arrested at a Loudoun County, Virginia, school board meeting, a meeting that was ultimately deemed an “unlawful assembly” after many attendees vocally opposed a policy on transgender students.
What people did not know is that weeks prior on May 28, Smith says, a boy allegedly wearing a skirt entered a girls’ bathroom at nearby Stone Bridge High School, where he sexually assaulted Smith’s ninth-grade daughter.
Juvenile records are sealed, but Smith’s attorney Elizabeth Lancaster told The Daily Wire that a boy was charged with two counts of forcible sodomy – one count of anal sodomy and one count of forcible fellatio – related to an incident that day at that school.
As a result of the viral video showing his arrest, Smith became the poster child for what the National School Boards Association has since suggested could be a form of “domestic terrorism”: a white blue-collar male who showed up to harangue obscure public servants on his local school board.
“If someone would have sat and listened for thirty seconds to what Scott had to say, they would have been mortified and heartbroken,” Lancaster said.
Minutes before Smith’s arrest, the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) superintendent lectured the public that concerns about the transgender policy were misplaced because the school system had no record of any assault occurring in any school bathroom.
Then a woman wearing a rainbow heart shirt – a left-wing community activist – told Smith she did not believe his daughter, he says. His rage reached a boil and he had a heated exchange of words with the woman. A police officer, there to keep the peace in the meeting, pulled on his arm. Smith yanked it away. Before he knew it, Smith says, he was hit in the face, handcuffed, and dragged across the floor, with his pants pulled down. Images of the incident were splashed on televisions and newspapers across the world.
Buta Biberaj, the county’s progressive, top elected prosecutor, who has close ties to the school board’s most liberal members, appeared in court to personally prosecute Smith for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Biberaj ran on a platform of ending “mass incarceration,” but she wanted to put Smith in jail for the misdemeanors.

Just like Biden’s beach house wall, liberals want “the little people” to pay for their stupidity
President Obama was all too willing to let a repeat offender stay out of jail (who ended killing 17 and wounding 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School). That didn’t matter, since his daughters went to a private school and have a Secret Service protection detail.
Governor Northam obviously had no problem recycling transgender offenders back into the schools. However, again, he probably had no children in those schools that were not protected by armed guards.
High school girls exploited as they give lap dances to teachers and administrators
USA Today tells us of lap dances and inappropriate dress at a school event.
The superintendent of an Eastern Kentucky school district said “appropriate disciplinary action has been taken” after photos surfaced showing students giving lap dances to staff Tuesday as part of a high school’s homecoming week.
Sondra Combs, superintendent of Hazard Independent Schools, did not specify who had been punished.
“As it is a personnel matter, we are not allowed to disclose any further information regarding the specifics of the discipline,” her statement said.
Combs said students were behind the homecoming festivities that included a “man pageant” and led to photos of students giving lap dances in their undergarments being shared on social media.
The photos were initially posted to the “Hazard High School Athletics” Facebook page, but that post was later deleted. Among them was a photo showing a student dancing in front of the high school’s principal, Donald “Happy” Mobelini, who is also mayor of the Perry County city. Screenshots have continued to circulate on social media.
Other photos on the athletics page that also were taken down showed female students dressed in “Hooters” outfits and students and staff appearing to paddle one another.

Yes, sometimes children need protection both from themselves and those who would exploit them
Sometimes, as parents, it is our duty to protect our kids from outside predators. However, sometimes our children come under the sway of unsavory characters who have worked themselves into positions of authority. This is where we need to work and weed out the exploiters.
3. Our borders and jobs
Migrant caravan containing thousands travels through Mexico toward US border
Fox News reports on the thousands travelling through Mexico toward the U.S. border and the message they bring.
A massive migrant caravan organized via QR code left the town of Huehuetán in the south of Mexico Monday morning on the third day of their long trek toward the U.S. southern border.
The caravan, made up of mostly Central Americans, South Americans and Haitians, is the largest and most organized of its kind this year, with participants registering to join via QR code starting on Oct. 15.
“Tell Biden we are coming,” one migrant named William from El Salvador told Fox News.
Video footage captured by Fox News showed thousands of migrants, including small children being pushed in strollers, walking north about 20 miles north of Tapachula. One migrant carried a large wooden cross at the front of the caravan while others carried American flags and signs with President Biden’s name.
“President Biden, we need your help,” one migrant said.

Ask the chicken plant workers of Mississippi whether illegal aliens drove the wages down
On this physical Earth, there are limits. Biden has proven it by breaking the supply chains and emptying once plentiful grocery store shelves.
If we do not want the #EmptyShelvesBiden and the continually increasing prices on every thing needed for life to become commonplace, we need to set some limits. We need to enforce borders.
Border Patrol arrests of criminal illegal immigrants skyrocket
Fox News tells us here how criminal illegal aliens have been arrested.
Border Patrol agents in the Laredo Sector in Texas have seen arrests of criminal illegal immigrants skyrocket this fiscal year, as agents at the border continue to deal with an overwhelming migration crisis — which includes gang members and sex offenders trying to make their way into the U.S.
In a release, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said that since the beginning of the fiscal year in October, nearly 760 criminal illegal immigrants have been arrested by Laredo Sector agents, compared to more than 60 arrests in the same time last year. That is an increase of approximately 1,166%.
It comes as part of an aggressive spike in migrant encounters at the border, with 178,000 migrants encountered in April alone, an increase from the already high 172,000 encountered in March. While many of those are single adults being removed by the Title 42 public health protections, agents have previously estimated there have been up to 1,000 “gotaways” getting past agents every day.
Sources have told Fox that smugglers will dump children in one part of the border so that adults can get in in another part of the border — something through uncompleted border wall — as overwhelmed agents attend to the children.
CBP announced the surge in criminal arrests in Laredo in a release announcing that agents had apprehended a 20-year old Mexican national who was a member of the Sureno Gang, and had a criminal history including robbery, battery and theft of property. Agents across the border have encountered gang members from a number of gangs, including MS-13.

Add to this, Biden wants to pay “reparations” to those who broke into our country illegally and were punished
Biden wants to pay “reparations” to those who broke our immigration laws and then (usually by breaking yet another law) were caught and deported. However, he doesn’t want to pay them $100,000 (the amount paid to the spouse and children of a soldier or sailor who died in service to our country). Biden doesn’t want to give them the equivalent of 40 acres and a mule (the promise made to former slaves). No, Biden wants to pay these people who broke our laws $450,000.00.
