In this Counterpunch episode, “Why Are Congressional Security Risks Leading the Investigation Into the Jan. 6 “Insurrection?” host Trevor Loudon exposes who is really behind the investigation of the Jan. 6 protests at the Capitol in Washington, D.C. The video begins with the host announcing that in July of this year, the U.S. House of Representatives set up a special committee called the House Select Committee to Investigate the Jan. 6 Attack. This is referring to the protests held on Capitol Hill after former President Donald Trump’s speech, when the election results were still in question. These protests paled in comparison to the damage done and life lost in the riots committed by the Black Lives Matter organization, which Loudon advises is a front for the Chinese communist organization Liberation Road, also called Freedom Road Socialist Organization. The host then poses the question of how objective and honest this committee will be in conducting the investigation. Loudon surmises that it will be used as a way to stifle conservatives and Trump supporters. He talks about the leadership of the committee. It is comprised of seven Democrats and two Republicans. Surprisingly, the two Republicans Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger are both staunch anti-Trump representatives. Four influential Democrats that Loudon lists, who are heading the committee are:
· Bennie Thompson, chairman and head of Homeland Security in the House of Representatives. While serving as a politician in his home state of Mississippi, he supported several Marxist groups and attended an event organized by the Democratic Socialists of America. In 2000, Bennie Thompson, Jim Clyburn, and Greg Meeks all traveled to Cuba to meet with Fidel Castro and others, many of whom were children of communist party leaders.
· Zoe Lofgren from California who headed the Trump impeachment efforts in her state. She also has close ties to the National Iranian Action Committee, which lobbied to end Iranian sanctions and restore the American–Iran nuclear deal
· Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who is largely responsible for promoting the Russia collusion story against Donald Trump. He was elected by a coalition of radical labor unions led by Democratic Socialists of America activists. He also worked closely with the Committee of 100, which was founded by Henry Kissinger to serve as a lobby group for Chinese communist interests in America. Loudon states, “I regard it as one of the most dangerous organizations in America. I think it is communist China’s main propaganda vehicle, main influence operation in this country.” Schiff is also known for his support of communist China.
· Jamie Raskin of Maryland, who is serving on the Judiciary Committee, is the son of pro-communist activist, Marcus Raskin who in the 60s co-founded the Institute for Policy Studies. This was described by British intelligence as the perfect intellectual front for Soviet activities, which would have met with resistance if they were done openly by the KGB. He also works very closely with the Democratic Socialists of America and has employed their people as staff members and written articles for their publication. On an interesting side note, the Democratic Socialists of America hold their meetings at the headquarters of the Institute of Policy Studies. Raskin also worked for Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition in the 1980s, which was run for the most part by the Communist Workers’ Party and the League of Revolutionary Struggle with help from the Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA. He is also involved with the National Iranian Action Committee and was instrumental in the successful campaign to reinstate the American Iranian nuclear deal.
Why Are Congressional Security Risks Leaking the Investigation Into the Jan. 6th “Insurrection”? l Counterpunch [Full Episode]
Watch the full episode here.
The host points out that when you look at these Democrats who are on the committee to investigate the Jan. 6 protests, the bias is clearly seen as they are all anti-conservative and anti-Trump. Loudon describes them as anti-Republican and anti-American as they work closely with Iran, China, Cuba, and other radical communist groups. The host then states, “These people are all hard-core leftists, but they are running a select committee that could have huge implications coming into the mid-term elections. A committee that could make major recommendations for the FBI to crack down on conservatives, Republicans [and] Trump supporters.”
The video ends with the host questioning what will happen in the future if this committee recommends closer scrutiny and more action and even persecution of anyone who aligns themselves against the Democratic Party. He states that he believes that this will be like a witch hunt and that these recommendations by this committee will have detrimental effects on the conservative movement and upcoming elections. He compares it to what happened in Germany with the Nazi attack on the Bundestag, which was the only federal representative body that was elected by the German people. He believes this committee is designed to give leftist Democrats and communists an excuse to crack down on anyone that might try and oppose them.
