The Facts About January 6th

In the 3 years since January 6th, 2021, many lies about that day have been revealed and replaced with facts.

We now know that J6 was not an insurrection by Trump supporters, we know that the federal government had many operatives in the crowd that day, many instigating others to act violently.  We know that barricades and signs were removed, the doors were opened and protestors were welcomed in by Capitol Police.  We also know that outside, Capitol Police and DC MPD were using deadly force against non violent protestors, exposing their own officers to clouds of pepper spray, and ignoring the laws regarding dispersing crowds deemed unsafe or unlawful.  And we know that inside, Officer Michael Byrd used unnecessary and unlawful deadly force against Ashli Babbitt, who posed no threat to Officer Byrd.  Despite this, we know Officer Byrd shot and killed Ashli, an action that rightfully should be charged as a murder.

We know many, many things about the true events of January 6th thanks to the tireless efforts of organizations like StopHate.com, and great patriots like David Sumrall.  David has compiled the most complete body of information available online, and we strongly encourage you to visit StopHate.com and fully educate yourself about the truths of J6.

Ongoing Lawfare

For those targeted by the weaponized Department of Justice over the events of January 6th, the tragedy of that day is ongoing.  Hundreds and hundreds of Americans are being arrested in aggressive FBI raids, held pretrial without bail, denied the right to present exonerating evidence or witnesses.  Biased judges assist government prosecutors twist the laws to overcharge and overconvict innocent Americans.  Bigoted and hateful prison guards abuse the J6 inmates daily in some of the worst prisons in America.  Justice is not being served in our courts for J6 defendants.  Human rights are not being respected in their incarcerations.  

Organizations like Condemned USA and founder Treniss Evans have been on the front lines of the legal battle the J6 defendants are facing.  Their work in providing information, assistance and finances to Americans facing these weaponized charges is worthy of great commendation and support.

Abusive Conditions 

Whether awaiting trial or serving a J6 conviction, J6 inmates are being constantly abused.  Solitary confinement, poor and tainted food, sleep deprivation, denial of medical care, physical beatings and prolonged bondage are just a few of the tortures endured by these individuals.

The families of J6 inmates are also suffering, burdened with the lack of a loved one and the exorbitant costs of court cases and incarceration.

Thanks to organizations like the Patriot Mail Project, American Patriot Relief, the American Gulag Chronicles, J6 Patriot News and Stand In the Gap, to name a few, J6 defendants and their families are getting much needed information and support.  Please consider writing a J6er via the Patriot Mail Project, adopting a J6er with American Patriot Relief and purchasing a copy of the American Gulag Chronicles to read the letters and stories of J6 inmates and support them.  

The need for these defendants and their families held hostage by a weaponized DOJ is great and we will continue to advocate for great organizations meeting those needs.

The Case for J6 Pardons
an excerpt from
"How to Pardon the J6ers: A Comprehensive Strategy Guide for Donald J. Trump"

The Case

Chapter 1: The Case for J6 Clemency

"Clemency, noun - an act of mercy, compassion or forgiveness"

 

When the Founders forged this magnificent  country, they knew full well the capacity of governments to be cruel and tyrannical.  They themselves suffered gravely under the tyranny of the King of England, and the US Constitution was written to ensure that the power of government would forever be constrained in order to protect the God given rights of the American people.  

In that Constitution, they granted the President of the United States the power of pardons and clemency, to provide mercy when needed from even our own government.  The Founders understood that any government, including our well-devised Constitutional Republic, could become corrupted by its own power.  They granted the President the power of clemency for this purpose, to serve as a check and balance to the justice system on behalf of the American people.

Throughout history, presidents, including yourself, have used the power granted in Article II, Section II, Clause 1 of the US Constitution, to grant mercy to Americans who were denied justice or endured excessive punishment.  It has been used to rectify wrongs committed by a weaponized DOJ, as we saw in your pardon of innocence for General Flynn.  In the case of the J6ers, both mercy and rectification are required.

 

Vivek Ramaswamy has aptly stated that all J6 defendants who were "peaceful or were denied due process" deserve a pardon.  We agree with his premise.  

 

So we set out to find J6 defendants who had received due process, and found quite the opposite.  Denial of due process is a factor in all J6 prosecutions.  J6 defendants are being denied their Constitutional rights as a standard operating procedure of the DOJ.  

 

They are denied discovery.  

 

They are denied access to exculpatory evidence in government possession.  

 

They are denied the ability to present exculpatory evidence that they have in defense possession.  

 

They are denied witnesses who can provide both direct and indirect evidence of their innocence.  

 

They are told refuting doctored evidence presented by the government is "irrelevant".

  

They are denied the right to question the government about its actions on January 6th. 

They are told they are not allowed to use the First Amendment as defense.

 

In every way, at every turn, the J6 Defendants are being denied justice.  They face a jury pool and judges who allege to be “victims” of the “crimes” of January 6 and they are denied change of venue.  The supposed victims are the judge and jury in these trials.  They are paraded in front of these biased juries and vindictive judges by corrupt and unfettered government prosecutors, convicted with near 100% success and locked away for years, even decades for coming to DC to make their voices heard "peacefully and patriotically" as you asked us to do. 

 

The government (and the fake news media) has lied since day one about the events of January 6th.  In fervent opposition, there has been a great deal of amazing work done by J6 activists such as David Sumrall and Treniss Evans, as well as others.  They have compiled extensive video and physical evidence revealing the truth about what happened that fateful January day.  These great Americans have shared their work with J6 lawyers to aid in legal defense, with Congress to encourage true investigations, and in documentaries to educate the public.  

 

What the now immense body of J6 research reveals is that the narrative presented by the partisan J6 Select Committee is false.  It was not an "insurrection" designed to stop the "transfer of power".  It was a massive outpouring of peaceful patriotic Americans seeking to use their First Amendment right to redress their grievances and support the Constitutional challenges to the electors by the states, who were entrapped by a miscarriage of Capitol security.  

 

When crowds arrived, trespassing signs were long torn down..  In some areas of the Capitol, officers opened the doors and welcomed unsuspecting visitors in, while in other areas they fired on peaceful protestors with deadly force, misusing non lethal weapons to injure and incite the crowd.  

 

The FBI has admitted to having significant numbers of agents embedded in the crowds of J6, and known FBI agents entered the building and participated in the violent actions inside the US Capitol, as can be seen in the government's own video evidence.  Known Antifa provocateurs embedded in the crowd on Jan. 6 committed and instigated acts of violence, many of which have strangely gone uninvestigated and unprosecuted by the DOJ.  Peaceful protestors walked into a trap when they went to the US Capitol that day, a trap set by our own government with the help of radical leftist terrorists.

 

I want that to be a crazy conspiracy theory, Mr. President, but unfortunately it is the reality that hundreds of J6ers know only too well.  The evidence is crystal clear.  The government is using their failure to secure the Capitol building as a trap to convict and incarcerate hundreds of your supporters, patriotic Americans. They are parents, veterans, soldiers, law enforcement officers, pastors, business owners, patriots.  They are victims of a weaponized government, weaponized against YOU, and the values we all stand for, liberty and justice for all.

 

The events of J6 are just the beginning of a tyrannical nightmare which the J6ers cannot wake up from.  Beyond the events of that horrific day where four Americans lost their lives to the US Capitol security failure, the weaponized DOJ has tormented and violated J6 defendants as a rule.  Violent late night raids at gunpoint, unwarranted pretrial detention for years in horrific prison conditions, trampling the 4th amendment, while biased prosecutors and partisan judges trample the 5th and 6th amendments.  

 

Radical leftists such as the Sedition Hunters (just rebranded Antifa, many residing  in foreign nations) work hand in hand with the FBI to target patriots who were at the Capitol on J6.  They even target conservatives they hate who were not at the Capitol that day, dox them and cause other harm if they cannot convince the FBI to issue J6 charges.  It's like an online swatting of hundreds, even thousands of people by radical leftists at the behest of the corrupt FBI.  

 

These defendants are put through the legal meat grinder that is the norm with J6 cases, with similar experiences to the biased cases which you yourself have been subjected to.  They don't have the resources you do, and family after family are being bankrupted fighting and losing to this utterly corrupt DOJ.  They receive outrageous sentences for their political opinions, or for the lies the government tells the juries, and they are locked away in our most horrific prisons.  

 

In prison, as well as in pretrial detention, these J6 defendants are abused, starved, denied medical care, assaulted, bound, kept in excessive solitary, denied visitation, denied legal contact or legal privacy, and many, many other horrific and inhumane conditions they have been forced to endure both awaiting trial and while serving these unfair and excessive sentences.

 

The J6ers as a whole are being treated worse than inmates in 3rd world countries.  Their treatment is a stain of shame on the face of America, and even Putin has called out the egregious treatment of the J6 political prisoners.

Only complete justice for all of the J6ers who have been denied due process can ever end this great American shame.  What we've found is that all J6ers have been denied due process, certainly all that have been charged with the weaponized charges such as 18 USC 1512 and 18 USC 1752 ( to mention two) which have been wrongly applied to the events of January 6th to allow for huge and  unfair sentences.  We suspect that you too will find that the totality of J6ers have been denied the due process Vivek spoke about, and as such they need and deserve your clemency.  One of the goals of this guidebook is to help you be able to effectively make that argument to the American people: 

The entirety of J6 defendants were denied due process, they have been abused in incarceration, and they have suffered far more than is merited for the events of January 6th.

Perhaps one day in the future, Mr. President, those who truly caused January 6th will be brought to justice, and properly charged with their crimes of that day.  Perhaps those who killed Ashli Babbitt and Roseanne Boyland will be held accountable for their actions.  However, those who have been currently blamed for the events of that day are not the perpetrators of the horror of January 6th.  The perpetrators continue to walk free, some perhaps even in the halls of Congress, while innocent Americans who were entrapped by powerful political forces suffer untold torment in an abomination of "justice".

 

We MUST end that horror for those innocent Americans made a target of this political witch hunt against the MAGA movement.  Only massive and widespread presidential action can rectify the travesty fast enough.  And that action must be thoroughly devised to ensure the witch hunt is defeated.  Even in the process of pardoning the J6ers, the radical left is seeking to define the terms of who is "worthy" of a pardon.  They assert "only the non violent j6ers" should receive mercy, knowing full well that many of the charges of violence by J6ers are entirely falsified by the weaponized DOJ.  

 

The "Deep State" was very thorough in their plan to use J6 as a weapon to destroy our MAGA movement, and you, Mr. President, will need to be very thorough in your remedy of clemency.

 

I have openly stated that I believe all J6ers deserve clemency.  In saying so, I am not saying that they did no wrong that fateful January day, although a vast majority of them in fact did do nothing wrong, absolutely nothing wrong whatsoever, and they are being railroaded by a broken justice system.  Some people took actions that day that were unlawful, and wrong, but of all of the hundreds and hundreds of cases I have reviewed that have been charged as of the writing of this guidebook, all have been denied due process in court and in incarceration conditions.  All have suffered far more than is moral for the actions of that day.  The J6ers who have been charged, convicted and held in incarceration have ALL been denied justice and need clemency.  Those who avoided incarceration by accepting an unfair and often coerced plea deal also need clemency.  And there are those who are no longer with us, who have taken their lives or lost their lives in the process of seeking justice.  They, too, deserve your clemency.

 

We hope that you will stand with us in making the case for all of the J6ers to receive the most effective remedy to their individual legal situation to achieve some semblance of justice.  


 

Weaponized Charges

The primary reason to provide presidential clemency to all J6ers is the use of weaponized charges against them. A weaponized charge is one that has been misapplied systematically against a specific person or group of persons, often in a manner completely inconsistent with the intent of the law. 

 

18 USC 1512(c)(2)

We see this with the use of the felony charge 18 USC 1512(c)(2), a very common charge used against J6ers to impose large sentences.

Here is the charge as it is being applied to J6 defendants.

18 U.S. Code 1512 Tampering with a witness, victim, or an informant

(c)Whoever corruptly—(2)otherwise obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so,

shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

As you can see, the law is specifically intended to prevent witness tampering, which was NOT an activity that occurred on January 6th, 2021 at the US Capitol.  The portion of the law used is taken completely out of context of the law's intent to prevent witness tampering.  The DOJ has twisted the law to inaccurately apply it to the "obstruction" of "any official proceeding", whether or not any witness tampering took place.  For this reason, the US Supreme Court has seen fit to take up the case against the misuse of 18 USC 1512, as of the writing of this guidebook.  

Unfortunately for the J6ers, there are several other weaponized charges that were used against them, and so for most J6ers charged with 1512, any ruling by the Supreme Court would only lower their sentences at best, after weeks/months of filing and legal wrangling.  The Supreme Court's decision is not going to give the J6ers the legal rectification they deserve, because 1512 is only one part of the J6 puzzle, and the idea of taking each weaponized charge through the courts to the SCOTUS to finally secure J6 justice is unworkable.  It could take decades for SCOTUS to rule on all of the abused laws of J6, if ever, and the J6 political hostages do not have decades to wait. 

18 USC 1752

The DOJ also has systematically misused  18 USC 1752 against J6ers. They assert that many J6ers were violating this law against "knowingly entering or remaining in" a restricted building or grounds.

Here's the law, as written.

18 USC 1752 Restricted building or grounds

(a)Whoever—

(1)knowingly enters or remains in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so;

(2)knowingly, and with intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions, engages in disorderly or disruptive conduct in, or within such proximity to, any restricted building or grounds when, or so that, such conduct, in fact, impedes or disrupts the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions;

(3)knowingly, and with the intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions, obstructs or impedes ingress or egress to or from any restricted building or grounds; or

(4)knowingly engages in any act of physical violence against any person or property in any restricted building or grounds; 

(b)The punishment for a violation of subsection (a) is—

(1)a fine under this title or imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both, if—

(A)the person, during and in relation to the offense, uses or carries a deadly or dangerous weapon or firearm; or

(B)the offense results in significant bodily injury as defined by section 2118(e)(3); and

(2)a fine under this title or imprisonment for not more than one year, or both, in any other case.

 

The problem of course is that on January 6th, at the US Capitol, no one knew what areas were restricted, thus did not KNOWINGLY enter or remain in a restricted area.

 

For many, many J6 defendants who entered the US. Capitol that day or "breached Capitol grounds", any signs or fencing informing people that the area was "restricted" were torn down early in the day, so that people did not know they were entering areas on the Capitol grounds that were restricted. If they entered the building, the vast majority entered through open doors, past multiple US Capitol Police officers who either ignored their entry into an alleged "restricted area" or who openly welcomed them in.  They took selfies with Capitol Police officers, some J6 defendants were escorted around the building by Capitol Police who did not ask them to leave or inform them the building was a legally restricted area.  No announcements could be heard either inside or outside informing people that the area was restricted and asking them to leave the area, as is required to make a person KNOW they are in a restricted area and can thus KNOWINGLY remain.  Officers did not inform persons of the restricted area, and made no effort to clear much of the building for a significant period of time, leaving most persons who entered the Capitol to believe at the time that they were allowed to be inside what most had been taught was "the People's house".

When J6 defendants attempt to bring evidence of this fact to the court, they have been systematically denied the right to bring evidence proving that they did not KNOW they were in a restricted area.  Video evidence of officers welcoming them into the Capitol has been denied either in discovery, or denied admissibility by the judge.  Evidence that no restricted area signs were visible, nor any announcements made has also been denied.  Defendants have been denied the right to question as witnesses those officers who welcomed them in, instead only allowing a group of "acceptable" US Capitol Police to be called to testify, several of whom have provenly lied under oath.

In fact, evidence now shows that there were no "Secret Service protected" individuals left in the building by the time most people who were charged entered, through open doors past compliant police officers, thus further negating the use of this law against J6ers.

NO ONE "knowingly" entered or remained in the US Capitol that day, because there was no way to know the area was restricted.

In normal circumstances, this charge would only result in a fine or short sentence, but a 10 year sentence is possible in cases where a "deadly weapon" was used or "significant bodily injury".  

The false narrative by the J6 Select Committee that several law enforcement officers "were killed on January 6th" has been used by the DOJ to justify that harsher sentence, as well as other false testimony by Capitol police officers regarding alleged injuries.  

For example, in the case of Officer Michael Fanone, US Capitol video footage finally released to the American public reveals that he lied under oath in testimony against J6ers.  Evidence also reveals that Officer Michael Byrd deliberately provided misinformation about his shooting of Ashli Babbitt, at one point falsely claiming that he heard shots fired, despite the fact that the ONLY shots fired that day inside the Capitol were the ones that he himself fired in his use of unnecessary deadly force against Ashli Babbitt.  Though there is ample evidence to prove officer misconduct, perjury and worse, that evidence is not allowed into court by biased and corrupt judges.

In several cases, the J6 defendants are charged with the assault of an officer when in fact they were helping and protecting the officer, or were defending themselves from unwarranted assault by the officer.  These defendants have been denied in court the right to present evidence they acted in self defense, or in assistance to officers or citizens to remain safe and unharmed.  This has allowed the DOJ to wrongfully apply the larger 10 year sentence to a charge that is usually considered as a misdemeanor.  

The evidence is very clear: the four people who died on January 6th were not officers attacked by civilians, they were civilians attacked by officers.  Ashli Babbitt was shot and killed by Officer Michael Byrd in cold blood.  Roseanne Boyland was beaten to death by Officer Lila Morris and was denied life saving medical care until it was too late.  The stories of Benjamin Phillips and Kevin Greeson involve similar unwarranted attacks by police (including percussion grenades) and similar denial of needed medical care.  NO ONE should have died that day, and but for the aggressive and violent actions of certain US Capitol police and DC MPD officers, no one would have perished unnecessarily. 

This evidence is also denied in court.  Judges have repeatedly refused any evidence of the violent actions of police that day, they have denied any experts to testify to proper police procedure and whether or not it was followed.  ANY scrutiny of the actions of the US Capitol police or DC MPD involved in J6 has been summarily rejected or suppressed in court by biased DC judges.

18 USC 1752 has been wrongfully applied, and any evidence proving it has been wrongfully applied has been prohibited by the judges.  This is a complete weaponization of this law.

18 USC 231, 18 USC 111 and 40 USC 5104

Section (a)(3) of 18 USC 231 is being used against J6ers in a similarly weaponized manner.

18 USC 231 Civil Disorders (a)(3) Whoever commits or attempts to commit any act to obstruct, impede, or interfere with any fireman or law enforcement officer lawfully engaged in the lawful performance of his official duties incident to and during the commission of a civil disorder which in any way or degree obstructs, delays, or adversely affects commerce or the movement of any article or commodity in commerce or the conduct or performance of any federally protected function—Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

J6 defendants are routinely accused of impeding an officer, and denied the right to present evidence that they actually assisted officers.  Officers have lied on the stand about this charge. The actual officer is rarely able to be subpoenaed for trial while a representative of the Capitol Police appears to testify and has no information to offer under cross examination. 

Additionally, defendants are not allowed to disprove the false assertion that commerce was harmed on January 6th, as any evidence proving that commerce improved during and after the J6 weekend is rejected as "irrelevant".  In this way, again, the maximum sentence can be utilized. Worse still the same individuals are bludgeoned yet again in civil courts in cases brought by D.C. Attorney General Racine alleging these falsely charged damages exist. 

 

18 USC 111 Assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers or employees (1)forcibly assaults, resists, opposes, impedes, intimidates, or interferes with any person designated in section 1114 of this title while engaged in or on account of the performance of official duties;

 (b)Enhanced Penalty.—

Whoever, in the commission of any acts described in subsection (a), uses a deadly or dangerous weapon (including a weapon intended to cause death or danger but that fails to do so by reason of a defective component) or inflicts bodily injury, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

 

In a similar fashion, 18 USC 111 has been used against J6ers, who again are being denied the right to present evidence of self defense, officer perjury, or other falsified evidence. The courts preclude any 1st amendment arguments in trials over and again.  Our review of the numerous J6 cases of defense attorney Roger Roots showed that this denial of the relevance of the 1st amendment was denied by multiple judges in a broad swath of cases that clearly indicates a systemic violation of Constitutional and legal rights..

 

Laws against parading, demonstrating and other unlawful activities at the US Capitol have been similarly used, such as 40 USC 5104 - Unlawful Activities (e) Capitol Grounds and Buildings Security.  Evidence of the multiple permitted events that were planned at the US Capitol that day have been prohibited from presentation in court, as has evidence of police allowing and facilitating entry, and other similarly exonerating evidence has been routinely rejected by DC judges.

 

In the case of these laws, and even a few others, one of two things is happening.  Either the law is being entirely misused, as we see with 18 USC 1512, and/or evidence refuting the violation of the law is being denied, suppressed or disallowed in court, as we see with 18 USC 1752, 18 USC 231, 18 USC 111 and others.  This is a complete DENIAL of DUE PROCESS for all of the J6ers charged in this wrongful manner and denied the right to present their legal defense.

 

***THIS IS WHY ALL J6ERS MUST BE PARDONED, and it is NOT POSSIBLE to sort out the "violent" and "non violent" offenders.  The DOJ has falsified claims of violence, and denied defendants their Constitutional and God given right to defend themselves against false charges.  As such, presidential clemency is needed as a check and balance against the extralegal actions of the DOJ.  You cannot fairly base your decision for clemency on falsified charges, and as president, you must take a LEGALLY CONSISTENT position against weaponized charges and the depriving of due process.  ALL individuals who were denied due process require the justice that at this point only your clemency can provide, regardless of any alleged violent activity the DOJ accuses them of, because ALL OF THEM WERE DENIED DUE PROCESS with these weaponized charges.  The ONLY consistent legal stance is to err on the side of the rights of due process and other Constitutionally protected rights. 

 

As the great legal scholar William Blackstone said in the 1760s, "It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer".  Our legal system is built upon this basic principle.  The law is written to be fairly and equally applied to all, and we are promised the right to a fair trial, so that in fact no innocent should suffer unwarranted punishment.  

When the right to a fair trial is denied, when the DOJ has rigged the legal system against a group of individuals based on their political beliefs, when our Constitutional rights are being routinely trampled by a biased judiciary, then the only remaining protection against the destruction of justice itself is the clemency power of the president. 

Abusive Conditions

Clemency is about mercy, and most often historically that 'mercy' is from excessive punishment endured during incarceration.  

 

In spring of 2021, I became aware of egregious abuses being perpetrated on January 6th defendants being held in the DC Detention Center.  Inhumane COVID protocols were being used to "justify" the 24/7 solitary confinement, denial of hygiene and medical services, denial of legal visitations and more.  This was imposed on all inmates in the DC Detention Center at the time.  The protocols were also being used to cover up even more egregious abuses of the J6ers housed there, which included tainted food, black mold, raw sewage, physical abuse by guards and worse.  I worked to convince Congress to use its DC oversight authority provided in the US Constitution under DC Home Rule to visit the DC jail to see these heinous abuses for themselves and talk to the inmates.  

 

After considerable effort, 4 members of the House of Representatives, Congressmen Louie Gohmert, Paul Gosar, Matt Gaetz and Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene attempted to visit the DC Detention Center, and despite being turned away at their first visit, they were eventually allowed to see the facility and discuss the abuses with J6 defendants.  

This Congressional visit was the first official peek into the horrific conditions J6 inmates have been subjected to in the nearly 4 years since January 2021.  Many of the defendants arrested in the first rounds of arrests were held without bond, some held pretrial for months, even years, enduring constant abuses.  Methods of systemic abuse such as "diesel therapy" (the constant and abusive moving of an inmate from facility to facility) were used, as well as other tactics such as prison guards encouraging violence against J6ers by other inmates.  Beatings were common, excessive use of cuffs and restraining devices, food served tainted with urine and feces, sleep deprivation, and other torture tactics were frequently used against J6ers, even before conviction.

Others were held in home detention, confined inside their homes, unable to care for family or loved ones, unable to work, or even walk outside, again for extended months without trial.

These people were not "innocent until proven guilty" as our Constitution asserts all persons are.  They were punished before, during and after conviction.  They were physically, mentally and financially abused pretrial, and that abuse continues after their manufactured convictions.  

 

Any J6er who has spent time in jail during their legal process will tell you horror stories of the abuse that is routine in our prison system.  The American Gulag Chronicles: Letters From Prison details many of these abuses in letters from actual J6 inmates written from inside.  They talk about the beatings, denial of medicine, solitary confinement and mental abuse.  Sadly, many of these abuses have become commonplace for inmates in our prison system, regardless of the reason for their incarceration.  J6 defendants who were merely exercising their 1st amendment rights on 1/6/21 were nonetheless sent to endure conditions usually reserved for murderers, rapists, and drug lords.  In many cases, they were given worse treatment than our most infamous and dangerous criminals.  At one point, the Lockerbie Bomber (the inmate charged with the infamous terrorist attack that took the lives of 270 people including 190 Americans) was being held in the Alexandria detention facility under lower security protocols than was Enrique Tarrio, leader of the Proud Boys, for his charges on January 6th, despite having not even being present in DC on January 6th.  This demonstrates the absurd overcharging and excessive treatment of J6 defendants, many of whom were treated more harshly than mass murderers.

 

Those who have been inside our detention facilities, whether in DC, VA or across the nation, they have endured far more torture and punishment than anyone should, far, far more punishment than is due their "crimes" and much of this torture began even before they had the right to defend themselves in court.  They deserve mercy from this abuse, mercy only you can now give, Mr. President.


 

A Political Witch Hunt

Never before in my lifetime has the DOJ been so aggressively used to target a political candidate and his supporters.  You yourself know very well how the Department of Justice has been twisted into a politicized weapon, used to control the outcomes of elections, shut down political dissent, and rob the American people of their right to citizen governance.  

The weaponized DOJ that has been attacking you on all fronts has also turned its mighty claws on the lives of average Americans who support you, Mr. Trump, and your policies, as I do.  It has come down with the full and mighty force of the US government on regular citizens who voted for you, with the intent to undermine your campaign, and send a chilling message to those who would stand up for you, Mr. Trump.  The J6 prosecutions are designed to put fear in the hearts of Americans who would dare to support a candidate that the "establishment" did not want.  They are designed to crush dissent and destroy our 1st amendment rights through fear and intimidation.  

This is an extremely dangerous situation for our country.  If our "justice" system can be used to control political opinions, and our prisons can be used to house people who dare to voice those opinions, then we are no longer a free country, and we are no longer free people. Without your intervention into this tyrannical abuse of our justice system, our Constitution, our principles, and our very way of life may not survive to be passed on to the next generation. 

As Ronald Reagan famously said, 

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”  

Unless the J6ers are pardoned, and their justice is served, freedom itself will be lost in our nation.  We will sadly find ourselves telling our children of yesteryear, when we had the right to a fair and speedy trial, the right to defend ourselves against charges, the right to speak our mind without fear of incarceration and torture.  When men were once free to vote for the candidate of their choice, and could peaceably assemble and redress our grievances without fear of being locked up in the "Gulag".  When we were once innocent until proven guilty, not punished without convictions.  Our children will become the servants of tyrants in the years to come unless the course for our nation is reset, and our Constitutional rights are defended by your powers of presidential clemency.  Quite simply, Mr. President, if you don't pardon the J6ers, America will never recover from its fall into tyranny.


 

Justice For All

As you review the details of each J6 case, you will find many more reasons to provide mercy to these J6 defendants and their families.  They are veterans, community leaders, fathers, mothers, and grandparents.  They are pastors, teachers, cops, and firefighters.  They are good upstanding Americans with few exceptions, and they have been wrongfully accused of the most heinous of crimes.  Their individual stories of hardship are enough to understand why mercy is needed.

But as we have demonstrated here, your presidential pardons are needed not only to end the personal nightmares of the J6ers and their families.  They are needed to correct our broken system of justice, to restore faith in our Constitutional rights and their safety in these United States.  We need you to pardon the J6ers to send a message to all would-be tyrants: The American Republic and the rights of its people will endure forever, with liberty and justice for ALL.  

We have lost sight of the ideal of liberty and justice for all, America has fallen short of the Founders' hopes for a just nation.  We can restore our national honor and preserve liberty for future generations, but we must first live up to our most basic ideal of justice for all, and it must start with justice for the J6.

The fate of that justice is in your hands, Mr. President, as is the fate of liberty itself.  You must pardon the J6ers, all of them, to restore justice, defend freedom and ensure liberty for future generations.  I know you will do the right thing.
