What Happened to Officer Brian Sicknick? via @julie_kelly2 amgreatness.com/2021/02/08/wha…
“Investigators are struggling to build a federal murder case regarding fallen U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, vexed by a lack of evidence that could prove someone caused his death,” CNN disclosed last week.
“Authorities have reviewed video and photographs that show Sicknick engaging with rioters amid the siege but have yet to identify a moment in which he suffered his fatal injuries.”
A medical examiner’s report has not been released and law enforcement authorities are tight-lipped; in a January 26 email to me, an FBI spokeswoman refused to comment on the status of the investigation.
The D.C. medical examiner’s office stated Monday by email they “will release the cause and manner of death when this information is available.”
Sources, however, told CNN that the medical examiner “did not find signs that the officer sustained any blunt force trauma . . . and early reports that he was fatally struck by a fire extinguisher are not true.”
Investigators also couldn’t confirm that Sicknick died as a result of reaction to pepper spray.

Messaging from the FBI does little to inspire trust in the Sicknick storyline.
The agency at first issued a statement that claimed 37 suspects were under investigation for the officer’s death but later said the statement was in error and relied on “incorrect internal information.”
The widely-accepted circumstances surrounding Sicknick’s death are part of the Democrats’ impeachment crusade against Donald Trump.
“The insurrectionists killed a Capitol Police officer by striking him in the head with a fire extinguisher,” House impeachment managers allege in a memorandum detailing their evidence.
But that inflammatory accusation isn’t backed by an autopsy report or any hard evidence such as a video clip. It isn’t backed by charging documents filed against anyone suspected of killing Sicknick;
nearly five weeks later, no one has been accused of murdering the officer even though federal law enforcement officials have arrested more than 200 people tied to their involvement in the January 6 melee.
No, the only proof the House impeachment managers can find is the January 8, New York Times article that relied not on evidence but on background from “two law enforcement officials.”

The issue with @neeratanden was never her tweets. It's her character washex.am/3p92mMq
Any Democrat who calls Susan Collins, the most centrist Republican in the Senate, "the worst," is not a person capable of following Biden's call to unity and civility.
And Tanden's problems go deeper than just the fact that she spent the last several years starting Twitter flame-wars in a manner that could be deemed unprofessional.

An Arrest in the US Shows the Islamic Republic's Influence in the West

The FBI recently arrested an Iranian academic for failing to register as a foreign agent in accordance with the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
Kaveh Afrasiabi was arrested in Massachusetts and is believed to have received more than $250,000 from the Iranian regime to disseminate its propaganda in the guise of objective analysis.

We must never surrender to the New Normal spiked-online.com/2021/02/05/we-…
The ‘dream of going back to normal’ is a ‘huge distraction’, says a writer for the Guardian. The inescapable Devi Sridhar, the public-health academic whose voice of doom is enthusiastically coveted by the media, speaks to us as if we are patients on a therapist’s couch-
– ‘it is perfectly normal to grieve for our lost normality, but denial needs to be followed by acceptance’, she has counselled.

No, We Don’t Need a ‘Reality-Czar’: Let Truth and Falsehood Grapple

“Truth…needs no policies or stratagems…to make her victorious.”

fee.org/articles/no-we… via @feeonline
The Times, the Biden campaign, the Democrat leadership, and others on board with the idea have come nowhere close to pursuing “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”
Yet despite a history of disseminating misinformation, clear biases, and suppression of those with different views, they would select the arbiters of Orwellian truth.

So who could be trusted as the reality czar? No one.

YOU should be ashamed.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, the ADL and AJc have all termed the anti-Israeli rhetoric of Jilani & fellow @amprog writers Eli Clifton, Ali Gharib, Matt Duss & Ben Armbruster to be infected with Jew-hatred and discriminatory policy positions toward Israel.
“Duss, CAP’s Middle East Progress director, wrote on ThinkProgress that “the entire Israeli occupation” of the Gaza Strip is “a moral abomination” comparable to the former Jim Crow South in the US.” m.jpost.com/International/…
For Matt, Serge, and Brian Duss, criticism of Israel is all in the family freebeacon.com/national-secur…

Some Maricopa County Republicans sought to censure Cindy McCain azcentral.com/story/news/pol…
The county GOP did censure former U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake, who did not seek a second term in 2018 and who also endorsed Biden over Republican President Trump.
The resolution, mockingly, commended Flake “for standing up for your principles, but recognizes that those principles are not those of the Republican Party.”
