Three years ago at 2:44PM, I watched an unarmed woman (Ashli Babbitt)— get shot and killed in front of me.
This single handily changed my life forever. Even though it’s been three years, it feels like it was just yesterday. The J6th committee refused to speak with me.
January 6th, 2021, started like any other day of Reporting. I woke up early and planned to conduct interviews and to document what was taking place.
I anticipated violence from Left-Wing groups due to the pattern I had seen emerge at prior Trump rallies once it got dark.
Around 12:20PM, I heard someone gathering a group to “head to the Capitol”.
Trump was still speaking so I found it odd, so naturally, I followed.
Later on, I would find out this was Ray Epps as well as other key actors.
The Ellipse is 1.6 mi away from the Capitol, it takes around 30-33 minutes via walk.
Trump began addressing the crowd at 11:58AM, and made his final remarks at 1:12PM.
Capitol Grounds were breached 19 minutes prior to Trump’s speech concluding.
I arrived outside the Capitol at 12:50PM, within 3 minutes, the initial barrier which had under 7 officers standing post was overwhelmed.
The second barrier went down within the same minute, this time it was Ray Epps who visibly spoke to Ryan Samsel and others right before.
For a while, all was calm and peaceful. Then a concussion grenade was thrown deep into what was a peaceful crowd. This caused an eruption within the crowd.
The crowd surged due to those in the back not understanding what was happening, pushing others forward consistently.
For over an hour, a continuous barrage of concussion grenades, tear gas, pepper spray, and other crowd munitions were deployed on the crowd.
This affected thousands of people, most of whom had no idea what was going on and hadn’t been violent at all.
I was hit by multiple rubber munitions and maced into absolute oblivion, even while wearing visible Press Credentials.
The Police were 10x more aggressive than I have ever seen at any riot I covered in 2020.
For over an hour this went on, during this barrage Kevin Greeson and Benjamin Phillips both suffered fatal heart attacks from the munitions being thrown. (Munitions we’re not authorized to be used on the 6th)
Here’s the moment I had to put out a man that was on fire after the USCP bombarded the crowd with explosive munitions.
In under 30 seconds, over 4 munitions were thrown into a peaceful crowd.

People were on fire and had holes blown in them at this point.
After an Officer pushed Derrick Vargo off of the inaugural stairs, breaking his legs, the Officer taunted the crowd below who were visibly upset. This caused a crowd to surge up the staircase which eventually arrived at the Western doors of the Capitol.
The Police then stood back and watched as people broke windows with a two by four and riot shield.
Those who broke the windows of the Capitol on the West Side were initially placed on an FBI wanted list, only to be taken off.
They of course, have not been charged.
Once inside the building it was a weird scene, people wandering aimlessly not really understanding where to go or what to do.
Almost everyone had their phones out and were recording, many were singing songs and chanting “stop the steal”.
I eventually followed a line of people up a spiral staircase which led me to a rotunda.
There was a small line of Police present initially and it quickly took a turn, tear gas was deployed, and a few people within the crowd began pushing the officers back.
The rotunda quickly became jam packed with people, like outside, there was what I would describe as a crowd surge. People in the back pushing so those in the front had no choice but to advance.
I saw multiple people escort police forward so they did not get caught in the surge.
Eventually I ended up outside the Speakers doors, alongside the ‘Q Shaman’, Podium Man, and others.
This is where police negotiated (on video) with the crowd claiming that if protesters remained calm and peaceful they would be allowed to “sit in” on the session.
Obviously this was not the case but it was tried anyways. This calmed the crowd quite a bit for a few minutes, until Zachary Alam and a few other people in the crowd begin to scream and get loud.
At this point only about 3 officers were standing in front of the lobby.
Officers moved and that’s when a large crowd formed against the door of the speakers chamber.
After minutes of nothing happening I noticed Ashli B walking left, so I followed. I walked down the hallway behind her and turned left into a room where a large G.W. portrait hanged.
This was the room seen on John Sullivans stream where he broke the window.
I turned around and walked straight out of the room, once again seeing Ashli Babbitt and deciding to follow her.
She was on her phone and didn’t seem to know where she was either.
At this point Ashli and I were walking side by side, and we passed a calm SGT at Arms employee who was on his phone.
I asked him how he was doing and he said good.
Ashli and I were the first to arrive at the doors in the speakers hallway, I offered Officer Yetter water.
NEW— Corrupted video footage shows the moment Ashli Babbitt and I arrived at the Speakers doors.
Ashli is seen briefly talking with Officers.

Ashli talked with the Officers briefly, then the room began to fill up quickly.
John Sullivan reached the front of the crowd by telling others he “had a knife”.
Zachary Alam became erratic and started breaking windows, this is where everything really took a turn.
Something that is extremely unreported about those moments is the fact that Ashli Babbitt tried to physically stop Zachary Alam after the officers standing in front of the doors shifted over.
She physically grabbed him, pulled him, and landed a punch in an attempt to stop him.
The @January6thCmte hasn’t mentioned Ashli Babbitt, who was shot and killed in the Capitol a single time during these hearings…
I wonder why?
— Tayler Hansen (@TaylerUSA) June 21, 2022
Ashli Babbitt did not break anything, she tried to stop those attacking the barriers multiple times.
To this day I wish I could have done more after she was shot, anyone who has seen someone die in a violent manner understands this.
The CERT team was entering the room atm.
Michael Byrd claims he shot Ashli because CERT had not arrived, they were present in the room and were moving forward to de escalate. They did not feel the need to shoot anyone or to resort to violence.
Michael Byrd became trigger happy and shot an unarmed woman posing no threat
What I witnessed on the 6th was Government sanctioned murder. The Media immediately reported inaccurately on what happened and spun a false narrative, labeling Ashli a terrorist.
No real investigation was made into Byrd, instead he profited over $164,000 from killing Ashli.
The Committee refused to talk to me even though I offered testimony and video.
@AdamKinzinger and others did not seriously “investigate” what took place. Instead, he donated to Michael Byrds GoFundMe.
My prayers are with those affected by violence on todays anniversary.
This makes me sick.
Even more sickening is how quickly and easily leftists accept and celebrate Babbitt’s murder. Those people are truly vindictive, bloodthirsty and rendered stupid by the propaganda they prefer.
This sounds like the crowd was not getting violent or not getting violent quickly enough, so some on the Capital Police decided to provoke the crowd with munitions. Perhaps they assumed that, these being patriots, they would not back down and run away from unprovoked violence.
Like with every other aspect of this riot, the Democrats have to exaggerate the events to emphasize their false claims of an “insurrection”. To them, it’s good Babbitt was killed. It’s good Officer Sicknick died. When they are allowed to delete all the context and actual facts, they can make a protest that got out of hand (thanks to government machinations) turn into an “insurrection”
I saw a post that said the federal government was looking at Babbitt’s killing as a wrongful death. While this is a no-brainer if there ever was one, I have little or no faith in the federal government under this corrupt regime would ever examine any case like this honestly.
Trump might as well have shot her himself.
Biden Bungles Jan. 6 Speech: “What Happened on JULY 6th Had International Repercussions Beyond What I Think Any of You Can Fully Understand”
Perhaps the only factual statement Obama ever made; “Never underestimate Joe’s ability to f**k things up.” Of course, even knowing this, Obama promoted idiot Biden for President, which tells you what regard he as for the United States.
But Trump didn’t. He had nothing to do with it. He was in no way, form or fashion responsible. Pelosi is responsible. Epps is responsible. Byrd is responsible. YOU are responsible, for excusing and accepting election fraud, government censorship and a fascist police state.
Of course Trump was responsible. He incited the mob, sent it to the Capitol, and refused to call it off, even after they broke in. Everybody knows this.
Nobody knows this, Pelosi’s aggitators and gassing a peaceful crowd so they would throw out objections to the fake election did this.
Reminder: Trump did nothing except legally win an election that was supposed to be gamed for HRC.
No incitement. No insurrection. Absolutely told everyone to be peaceful. Completely innocent and exonerated of any wrongdoing.
J6th was a false flag.
Everybody knows this.
Pigs like you trying to repeat your Big Lie in hopes it somehow gets written into history are an embarrassment…and traitors.
Everybody knows you’re all prone to violence.
Mike Rogers restrained in angry confrontation with Matt Gaetz over speaker vote
No one was promised anything? HA! In return for the chair, McCarthy has surrendered control of the House to a handful of disruptive loons who are going to create total chaos. We’ll see in 2024 how much American voters appreciate that.
Is this your signal you know your lies aren’t working, so you change the subject? You don’t need to remind us how chickenshit you are; your evasion of any and all questions confirms it.
What do you expect from a man-boy who’s now getting a fixed income from the government for being average, unthinking, and ultimately useless for his entire life?
I bet he has no kids or grandkids. His yammering smacks of the original “incel” strain that started in the 20th Century.
That’s how men solve problems, in the end.
You’d best be well to remember that, useless cuck who’s been allowed to enjoy an easy life that you are.
As for real violence, the Left commits it….in spades.
2020 antifa/BLM riots, killing 25 people and humiliating old women. Insurrection against local, state, and federal governments.
The Janurary 6th coup, in which Trump supporters DIDN’T KILL ONE PERSON, but the complicit Capitol Police did, with impunity.
The Left is violent, by empirical evidence and proof.
The “Right” is not.
This is the America greg and his cowardly ilk are actively fighting to institute:
You fit a profile.
So say all psychopaths when normal people stand up and say “no” to them.
We all know you’re a government spook of some kind.
The “Trump caused an insurrection” hoax is dead…like all the other hoaxes before it.
Let it go.
Get some therapy so you understand just how toxic your own unoriginal “profile” is to the rest of humanity…and stop bothering the rest of us with your weak, failed propaganda.
I forgive you of your ignorance, but I also ask you turn from your wicked ways and get a life.
The instances of the Left committing violence are several multiples more than any rogue “right winger” that usually ends up being a standard crazy.
We saw how a match up between violent, insane Leftists and simple patriots saying “no” ended up when Kyle Rittenhouse dispatched and neutered a few wanna-be tough guys committing violence against our nation, our people, and our governments in Kenosha.
Right now, Americans who understand our election are fraudulent, work hard, actually build things and build wealth, will be able to bypass the useless fools like you and the tyrants you’ve invited to squat in our House and governments, at large.
Losers lose, and winners win.
The Left is losing, and they are imploding as they do. Simple thing to stand back and let them.
Only those actually responsible (shifting blame, politicizing, weaponizing the event) and brainless, gullible fools used to and addicted to being lied to “knows this”. It cannot be “known” because it simply isn’t true. You haven’t seen one particle of valid evidence supporting your lie and, amazingly, the FBI (yeah, THAT FBI, the one that hates him and has persecuted him) found him and all other Republicans to be innocent of any role in organizing any such riot.
“Peacefully go” is probably the worst attempt to incite any violence ever in history. He called for peaceful protest and called for the rioters to stand down… but, of course, his Twitter account was suspended.
What of the 20 + FBI assets in the crowd? What of Ray Epps? What of the “pipe bomber”? What of the refusal of Trump’s offer of 20,000 National Guard troops for security? What of Pelosi’s staff objecting to Capital Police reinforcing security? What of Pelosi banning anyone from the so-called “committee” that wasn’t a hand-picked Trump hater? What of the complete lack of hostile questioning on that committee? What of the suppression of so much video of that day? What of Pelosi just “happening” to have a documentary crew on site? This was a Democrat operation from beginning to end.
Only the stupidest of stupid, willfully ignorant useful idiot perpetual fool “knows this”.
If you can ever find any real evidence of this that counters the clear, video evidence of Trump NOT doing that, by all means.
Partisan, regime-commissioned lies don’t count.
Trump is innocent, on every single hoax you anti-American slugs have leveled at him.
You’re on the wrong side of this, greg….and I’m not talking about Trump or Biden.
The cold blooded murder could have not shot her in a kill spot point blank or pushed her back out the window. she wasnt an Amazon. If a true threat the 2 heavily armed police would have stopped her.
Now go get your fill of mockingbird, mk ultra programming from your anti american boob tube.
She was the first person through the last barrier between a violent mob that was breaking through and elected officials. Under the circumstances, the shot was entirely justified. Her death is Trump’s fault. He’ll NEVER hold office again.
Push her back out, if the crowd was so violent why did the 2 heavily armed officers not stop the men from breaking in the glass? They stood down, just watched it happen.
The shooting was not justified in any way.. That doorway led to a hallway outside the chambers, there was another set of doors the shooter came through to murder Ashi.
This from the article above you didnt bother to read before you just made up a big fat lie.
Ashli and I were the first to arrive at the doors in the speakers hallway, I offered Officer Yetter water.
Go look at the footage those doors do not lead directly into the chambers.
The only way Trump won’t hold office would be if fascists like you illegally invent more crimes and false stories (for which you should be charged and arrested for Treason).
There was no “violent mob,” just a small group of people, from a historically large crowd, literally invited in and provoked by government agents.
Trump did nothing wrong, and saying he did just makes you look more and more like a schizophrenic who’s, until now, been slipping through the cracks.
What mental illness you have might be debatable, but that you have one isn’t.
Why? A Fed did it for theater.
Everybody knows that.
Why Can’t We See the Other 14,000 Hours of J6 Video Footage?
Would the release of this evidence destroy the narrative? It would seem so. Scumbag Byrd should be charged with 1st degree murder.
Michael Byrd had already shown he was irresponsible.
Previously to Jan 6th he had just left his loaded gun in a men’s room at the Capitol.
On Jan 6th, inside the House chambers he was video’d with his finger on the trigger of his gun when no one was in the room but him and congress people.
More footage of him from that day would be enlightening.
Why was he hanging out with the only Antifa menber to be filming inside the hallway right as he shot Ashley Babbett?
The guy who recorded the shooting and shouted, “We got one!” as Ashley was hit.
Why did the gov’t (don’t know which part) pay for him to hide out on a military air base for 18 months starting that day of Jan 6th?
He was allowed to stay where only generals are housed, he and his pet.
Did he ever pay for the “incidentals,” the air base claimed he used but the gov’t had not paid for?
What’s wrong with this picture?
Federal appeals court strikes down ban on bump stocks
6-year-old shot teacher at Newport News, Virginia, elementary school, police say
Meh. “What’s wrong with this picture” is that you don’t understand that parenting matters.
Not the existence of guns and our right to bear them.
J6th was a false-flag and Trump did nothing.
The kid didnt use a bumpstock, but maybe transferred in from Illinois…
Odd, that your “timeline” omits the times.
Trump ended his speech—which was steamed live and being followed on cellphones en route to the Capitol on cell phones—at 1:10 PM.
Trump’s motorcade arrived back at the White House at 1:19 PM.
Trump began watching events unfold on a White House television at 1:25 PM.
The mob broke through the final outside barrier guarding the east side of the Capitol at 2:00 PM.
The first rioters entered the building through the broken window at the rear at 2:12 PM.
Ashley Babbitt wasn’t shot until 2:44 PM.
Trump tweeted: “I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!” at 3:13 PM—29 minutes after Babbitt was killed.
At 6:06 PM, Trump tweets: “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!”
You can damn well BELIEVE it will all be remembered forever.
Care for the verified timeline including all significant events? Click here.
There’s just no evidence that would even remotely incriminate Trump.
I don’t know why you idiots keep doubling down on this.
It’s a dead hoax.
Like the Deep State killing JFK, their treasonous coup against Trump will TRULY be remembered forever…
At the very least, you’ve got dereliction of duty. His own people were pleading with him to call off his mob. Right wing extremists are trying to turn Babbitt into Horst Wessel.
Only a goose stepper like yourself would know who this brown shirt, Horst Wessel. was. Ashli was murdered, she isnt a martyr, but your lack of empathy for her death supposed fellow veteran is quite telling. What of the political prisoners of Biden. Nearly 2 years held in horrid conditions with no charges or bail, what kind of regime is he running here? No speedy trial?
Anyone who knows the history of the rise of Nazism and Adolf Hitler knows who Horst Wessel was. Many people will even recognize The Horst Wessel Song from documentaries and movies about the period. It was the Nazi Party’s official anthem from 1930 until 1945.
Wise words, from George Santayana: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
I’m more and more convinced the “greg” account is simply government spook software.
So disjointed and crazy are these responses of “his.”
Either it’s a robot, or it’s a batshit crazy moron who somehow got radicalized by Leftwing propaganda.
Either way, the “greg” account is irrelevant.
And Democrats are repeating it, step by step, with their own Reichstag Fire, government propaganda and censorship, their own Sturmabteilung, their own election fraud and their own fascism. Following the playbook to a T.
Wow you are really into this Nazi stuff, not me we kicked their asses they are losers, Endless european squabbles and wars first tribes then kingdoms now WEF ruled territories invaded by gimmiegrant africans. I like American History and stuff about the Megalithic era.
Poor Ashli she was murdered, now her mother has done more time in jail than the guy who was handsomely rewarded after he put a lethal bullet in her neck at point blank range. Arrested for jaywalking on the anniversary of her daughters death.
While those that tried to trap Federal officers in a building then burn it down are walking around free as birds.
Those that stormed the White House, burned a historic church along and many other acts of violent rioting in DC got a speedy dismissal of charges.
Doomed to repeat it? 100 billion to Euro-Nazis proxy war and you have the ignorance to to use that quote?
greg fears a real investigation into the events surrounding January 6. A real investigation that seeks the truth as opposed to producing narratives that suppress the actual truth.
Who is Ray Epps and who is Megan Paradise?
Why has the FBI been unable to identify and arrest the DC pipe bomber?
Uh, Trump told people to be peaceful.
Shut up with your “Horst Wessel” nonsense.
The Left acted like Nazi’s during the “summer of love” and continue to do so. In the wake of a rigged election, they needed to “flip the script” and accuse the Right of doing what they were already doing, publicly.
TRUMP IS COMPLETELY, IRREFUTABLY INNOCENT OF ANY ACCUSATION YOU PIGS THROW.
You know this.
What you can remember is STATE FARM ARENA.
Why didn’t you include “Peacefully go and make your voices heard”? Not, “Go commit violence”, not “go follow FBI instructions and riot”, put “PEACEFULLY go”.
Babbitt was murdered by a coward and Democrats love cowards that commit violence for them.
And you can take all your propaganda and shove it up your leftist ass.
All excused because it’s part of the Democrat character.
After brokering the deal to allow McCarthy to become Speaker, Donald Trump proves ONCE AGAIN he has the real power, influence, and leadership in this country…as opposed to idiots like Jeffies or installed dictator Biden.
Trump is not only relevant, he’s pretty much in charge of our country.
Leftist propaganda nuts can’t overturn reality, thank God.
If Trump’s in charge, he’s responsible. Keep that in mind as his MAGA Morons gridlock Congress, crash the economy, and throw people’s lives into chaos.
Biden’s already done most of that. Inflation, war, rolling power outages, crime, fentanyl deaths, etc. All courtesy of Biden. Biden/Fetterman 2024. It’s a no brainier.
