Soon-to-be former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who sat on President Trump’s request for 10,000 National Guard troops to be available that fateful day, invoked no moment of silence for Ashli Babbitt,  an unarmed Trump supporter, the only person killed on Jan. 6, shot, some would say murdered, by armed security, her red MAGA hat making her an easy target.

Babbitt was unarmed, and if this was an armed insurrection why were no guns found or confiscated? Babbitt was not there to stage a coup, overthrow a government, or overturn an election. She was there to protest an election that a great deal of evidence suggests was stolen. Ashli’s mother was at Pelosi’s politicization of this day and Babbitt’s killing, offering through her ignored tears what she felt really went down that day:

Speaking to media in Washington, Babbitt’s mother, Micki Witthoeft, said, “I’m here to commemorate the 6th, to exercise my first amendment right, to support the prisoners who showed up for America on the 6th last year”.

Witthoeft said those who were arrested in the aftermath of the January 6 attacks “were suffering for no reason” and were “losing their businesses, losing their houses, losing their lives – lots of them for little more than carrying a flag”.

You know, the flag that won our independence from foreign tyrants and saved our country at Gettysburg when the Republicans of Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves own bt Democrats. Those who assembled in Washington D.C. on Ja n. 6 were largely there to protest domestic tyrants that used their cash and big tech censorship to manipulate an election and turn the government of the people into a government of, by, and for the likes of George Soros and Mark Zuckerberg.


Ashli Babbitt literally lost her life believing that silly little line about the consent of the governed. Clearly, on Jan. 6 many of the governed did not consent to an election they had every right to believe was stolen. The Democrats had no such evidence when Trump won in 26, spending the next 4 years calling him illegitimate and saying the Russians manipulated the vote to put him in office, and manufacturing a collusion hoax that was the mother of all conspiracy theories.

Ashli Babbitt, a veteran of the US Air Force who served two tours in Afghanistan and Iraq before later deployments with the National Guard to Kuwait and Qatar, didn’t have to die. She was killed by an officer who violated every guideline in every law enforcement training manual ever written. Like Judicial Watch, a watchdog group that has obtained relevant documents and video footage, notes, the killing of Ashli Babbitt was completely unjustified:

Judicial Watch announced today that it received multiple audio, visual, and photo records from the DC Metropolitan Police Department about the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt on January 6, 2021, in the U.S. Capitol Building.  The records include a cell phone video of the shooting and an audio of a brief police interview of the shooter, Lt. Michael Byrd.

Judicial Watch obtained the material through a May 2021 FOIA lawsuit filed after DC officials failed to respond to two April, 2021 FOIA requests submitted by Judicial Watch to the Metropolitan Police Department and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for records related to Babbitt’s death (Judicial Watch v. The District of Columbia (No. 2021 CA 001710 B)).

 Babbitt was shot and killed as she climbed through a broken interior window in the United States Capitol. She was unarmed, and a 14-year Air Force veteran. The identity of the shooter was kept secret by Congress as well as federal and local authorities for eight months until U.S. Capitol Police officer Michael Byrd went public to try to defend his killing of Babbitt….

“These recordings and photos provide dramatic, first-hand evidence that the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt was unjustified,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is disturbing that neither the Pelosi Congress nor the Biden/Garland DOJ took no action over this needless death.”


In an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt Byrd attempted to justify his killing an unarmed Babbitt despite no evidence that she was armed, no evidence that she presented an imminent and serious threat to anyone, and no evidence of her intent to do anything other than enter a prohibited area. Byrd shot and killed Babbitt simply on a hunch: she might be dangerous:

Byrd said he had no idea whether the person he shot was carrying a weapon. It was only later that night that he found out that the rioter was a woman who was unarmed….

“It was impossible for me to see what was on the other side,” he said.

But he did see the person now known to be Babbitt start coming through the broken glass.


“I could not fully see her hands or what was in the backpack or what the intentions are,” Byrd said.

So Byrd shot and killed Babbitt just to be on the safe side. Despite the unexplained dead body, Byrd was cleared of all wrongdoing. There was to be no Kyle Rittenhouse show trial for Byrd. The deep state knows how to protect its own, Noyjing else to see here so move along.

Democrats were silent when “peaceful protests” attempted to burn down a federal court house in Portland or the Interior building and offices. No insurrection there.  “Peacefully and patriotically,” as President Trump urged his supporters to act, are not words you heard when progressives like Kamala Harris formed their “resistance” against Trump or as our cities burned in Antifa and BLM led riots. The George Floyd/BLM protests cost 1-2 billion dollars in damage. They protested in over 140 Cities. Dozens of people died and over 14,000 were arrested, a federal courthouse in Portland was burned, as well as a historic church in Washington, D.C. but only the Capitol Hill protestors threatened our democracy. And Kamala Harris was cheering them on and helping to bail them out of jail.


President Trump gave a fiery political speech on Jan’ 6, but he has done so at scores of political rallies to over a million supporters, none off whom afterwards stormed government buildings, assaulted elected officials and cops, damaged and burned down businesses. No one died at or after any of Trump’s campaign rallies.

Pelosi has apparently forget this nation was born in a messy protest such as the Boston Tea Party when patriots protested unjust taxation by throwing British tea into Boston Harbor. Was that “white supremacy” because they were dressed as Indians, cultural misappropriation at the very least? The Constitution you say is under attack gives us the right to petition for redress of grievances and sometimes it ain’t pretty. Just witness the angry patriot parents at local school board meetings as so-called educators try to force critical race theory down the children’s throats just as you want to force it down all our throats. .

No hearings on the progressive insurrection of 2920.

 No moments of silence for its casualties like David Dorn. No mention of the killing of Ashli Babbitt by Nancy Pelosii. Say her name, Nancy. SAY HER NAME!
