1920 reenactment of the 1917 Seizing of the Winter Palace, in Putin’s hometown of St. Petersburg, by Bolshevik Baltic Sailors, during the Russian Revolution of 1917. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Storming_of_the_Winter_Palace

Proud Boys leader, Enrique Tarrio, an Afro-Cuban American, was charged on Monday, under a too broadly and vaguely written “sedition” law. Others were charged, too. The law itself undermines US democratic tradition. However, there needs to be further investigation of Enrique Tarrio. And, there needs to be an investigation of the head of the January 6th committee, Bennie Thompson, and his proven ties to both Cuba and the “Republic of New Afrika”, as well.

Why would a supposedly anti-communist Cuban American, Enrique Tarrio, say “Winter Palace”, clearly meaning the storming of the Winter Palace during Russia’s October Revolution, in response to another person saying “1776”? Who would think of the Russian Revolution when watching people go to protest in the US Capitol? Did Tarrio even control his messages or was it someone else? His friend Roger Stone, who’s a Putin apologist/apparent fan-boy? This should be investigated. Instead, he is being charged under a dangerously written law, which needs to be rewritten, as it lumps true attempts to overthrow the US government with vaguely written charges of disobedience to authority, which could be legitimate.

The law lumps together the very serious and narrow “conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them,” with the broad and not necessarily that serious “force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States.” Force is too vague a term, and has been sometimes interpreted as grabbing or pushing.

Tarrio, who allegedly corrected the cry by one person of “1776” to “Winter Palace” should be further investigated and probably charged, since that clearly refers to a Russian communist overthrow of government (October of 1917) – if he really wrote this. However, those who enthusiastically and naively cried “1776”, a reference to the US Declaration of Independence should not be charged for “sedition”.

Ultimately, these extreme charges play into the hands of Putin, and other adversaries, who wish to divide and distract the American people. This shouldn’t be surprising, considering that Biden’s Secretary of State (Blinken) overrode and waived the sanctions against Russia’s NordStream 2 and against former Stasi agent/friend of Putin, Matthias Warnig, until it was too late, and Biden implied that he might be ok with Putin taking a little bit of Ukraine. What is Blinken’s relationship to Ghislaine Maxwell? Tony Blinken’s stepfather, Sam Pisar, was the lawyer and confidant of her father, Robert Maxwell. Did Robert Maxwell work for the KGB? Did Sam Pisar? Ghislaine and Tony are within a few months of the same age. Her mother is French. Tony lived in Paris, while she lived near London.

And, how about the Head of the Jan. 6th Committee, Bennie Thompson’s communist connections? Who’s going to investigate his connections to Castro and to the Republic of New Afrika which set up their headquarters in Bennie Thompson’s hometown of Bolton and who arrived in Mississippi – not during the Civil Rights movement – but just as Mississippi pubic schools were to be fully integrated from First Grade up (1970)? New Afrika wanted to make a large section of the United States a separate country under their control. Why is no one investigating that? How can Thompson be responsible for US Homeland Security Oversight, given his background? https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2021/10/21/visits-to-cuba-by-biden-kingmaker-clyburn-jan-6th-coms-bennie-thompson-maxine-waters-and-other-cbc-members-of-us-congress-castro-praised-colin-powell/ https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2021/04/12/member-of-communist-group-m19co-that-bombed-us-capitol-in-1983-was-blm-fiscal-sponsor-2016-july-2020-vice-chair-board-thousand-currents-pardoned-by-clinton/

J-6 Committee member Jamie Raskin’s father was Marcus Raskin: “In the 1980s, in order to undermine Reagan’s defense buildup, Marcus Raskin and the IPS planned several conferences with Soviet officials believed to be under the influence or control of the Soviet intelligence services. At the time, 12 members of the U.S. Senate and 70 members of the House wrote to Secretary of State George Shultz, warning that the Soviet Union would use the events for intelligence purposes.” https://www.aim.org/aim-column/progressive-congressman-defends-fathers-soviet-ties Shouldn’t this be investigated, as well?

It turns out that Liz Cheney, another committee member, met Vladimir Putin in 1992, though she suspiciously claims that he made “no impression”. Who would believe that? Putin was, above all, a charming charismatic figure, and, according to West German intelligence archives was a womanizer. She was working for USAID, while her father was US Secretary of Defense! https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2022/06/10/liz-cheney-met-putin-in-1992-in-st-petersburg-she-led-us-state-dept-delegation-on-creation-of-russian-american-foundation-assistance-to-businesses-while-her-father-was-us-sec-of-defense/

What should be under investigation is any any foreign funding or foreign agents involved in January 6th – both protestors and questionable Congressional committee members.

Accusing people of sedition because they protest, engage in free speech, and possibly commit property damage, runs against the traditions of the English speaking peoples in the US and the UK. Property damage during protest and screaming “1776” is not “sedition”. Increasingly substandard education and massive immigration from the non-English speaking world, especially from authoritarian regimes, has apparently destroyed the traditions of a free people. The extreme way that the J6 protestors are being handled appears to be the nail in the coffin of US democratic traditions.

The President of the Confederacy spent only two years in prison, after the US Civil War.

Putin’s achieving his goals with this “show trial” run by Bennie Thompson, an apparent communist sympathizer and friend to/advocate of secessionist Republic of New Afrika– Lumumba: https://www.leagle.com/decision/1984753741f2d121750 The Republic of New Afrika was almost certainly funded by the USSR to sow division, just as Mississippi had finally arrived at the point of full school integration in 1970. And, Lumumba isn’t the famous African leader Lumumba. This one renamed himself after the original.

In the United States, seditious conspiracy is codified at 18 U.S.C. § 2384:
If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

This law was enacted in 1861 after secessionists gained control of most slaveholding states, although it was originally sought by Senator Stephen A. Douglas in response to John Brown’s 1859 raid on a federal arsenal. A substantially similar offense appeared in the Sedition Act of 1798, which expired in 1801”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seditious_conspiracy

It’s mind boggling that a Cuban-American would make reference to the Russian Revolution, if he was going to refer to a non-American revolution, unless he is Russian trained. Latin America and the Carribbean have had many leaders fighting for democracy – not just communist leaders. Why not Latin America’s Simon Bolivar or France’s Bastille? Why the “Winter Palace”? Since Tarrio is Cuban American, from Little Havana (Miami), it’s worth looking at the beginning stages of the Cuban Revolution, which started rather small: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuban_Revolution#Early_stages

Reference is also made to “No quarter. Raise the black flag.”

The black American flag first appeared during the American Civil War of 1861-1865. Confederate army soldiers flew the black flag to symbolize the opposite of the white flag of surrender. The black flag meant that the unit would not give in nor surrender and that enemy combatants would be killed…” See: “What does the black American flag mean?” by Katrina Schollenberger, SEO Reporter NY18:30 ET, Oct 3 2021 https://www.the-sun.com/news/2101328/black-american-flag-meaning-thin-blue-line/

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, June 6, 2022
Leader of Proud Boys and Four Other Members Indicted in Federal Court For Seditious Conspiracy and Other Offenses Related to U.S. Capitol Breach

New Charges in Superseding Indictment
A federal grand jury in the District of Columbia returned a superseding indictment today charging five members of the Proud Boys, including the group’s former national chairman, with seditious conspiracy and other charges for their actions before and during the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Their actions disrupted a joint session of the U.S. Congress convened to ascertain and count the electoral votes related to the presidential election.
The defendants include Henry “Enrique” Tarrio, 38, of Miami, Florida, the former national chairman of the Proud Boys; Ethan Nordean, 31, of Auburn, Washington; Joseph Biggs, 38, of Ormond Beach, Florida; Zachary Rehl, 37, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Dominic Pezzola, 44, of Rochester, New York. All previously were indicted and remain detained. They pleaded not guilty to charges contained in earlier indictments.

The superseding indictment adds two charges to the earlier indictment: one count of seditious conspiracy and one count of conspiracy to prevent an officer from discharging any duties. All defendants now face a total of nine charges and Pezzola faces an additional robbery charge. The defendants are scheduled to appear for a hearing on June 9, 2022, in the District of Columbia.

According to court documents, the Proud Boys describe themselves as members of a “pro-Western fraternal organization for men who refuse to apologize for creating the modern world, aka Western Chauvinists.” Through at least Jan. 6, 2021, Tarrio was the national chairman of the organization. In mid-December of 2020, Tarrio created a special chapter of the Proud Boys known as the “Ministry of Self Defense.” As alleged in the indictment, from in or around December 2020, Tarrio and his co-defendants, all of whom were leaders or members of the Ministry of Self Defense, conspired to prevent, hinder and delay the certification of the Electoral College vote, and to oppose by force the authority of the government of the United States. On Jan. 6, 2021, the defendants directed, mobilized and led members of the crowd onto the Capitol grounds and into the Capitol, leading to dismantling of metal barricades, destruction of property, breaching of the Capitol building, and assaults on law enforcement. During and after the attack, Tarrio and his co-defendants claimed credit for what had happened on social media and in an encrypted chat room.

A sixth defendant, who was earlier charged with the group, pleaded guilty on April 8, 2022. Charles Donohoe, 34, of Kernersville, North Carolina, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding and assaulting, resisting, or impeding officers.

This case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, the Department of Justice National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section and the Department of Justice Criminal Division’s Organized Crime and Gang Section.
The case is being investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office. The charges in the investigation are the result of significant cooperation between agents and staff across numerous FBI Field Offices and law enforcement agencies.

In the 17 months since Jan. 6, 2021, more than 800 individuals have been arrested in nearly all 50 states for crimes related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol, including over 250 individuals charged with assaulting or impeding law enforcement. The investigation remains ongoing.

An indictment is merely an allegation, and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

October Revolution (Russia): “A final assault against the Winter Palace—against 3,000 cadets, officers, cossacks, and female soldiers—was not vigorously resisted.[24][26] The Bolsheviks delayed the assault because they could not find functioning artillery[27] At 6:15 p.m., a large group of artillery cadets abandoned the palace, taking their artillery with them. At 8:00 p.m., 200 cossacks left the palace and returned to their barracks.[24] While the cabinet of the provisional government within the palace debated what action to take, the Bolsheviks issued an ultimatum to surrender. Workers and soldiers occupied the last of the telegraph stations, cutting off the cabinet’s communications with loyal military forces outside the city. As the night progressed, crowds of insurgents surrounded the palace, and many infiltrated it.[24] At 9:45 p.m, the cruiser Aurora fired a blank shot from the harbor. Some of the revolutionaries entered the palace at 10:25 p.m. and there was a mass entry 3 hours later. By 2:10 a.m. on 26 October, Bolshevik forces had gained control. The Cadets and the 140 volunteers of the Women’s Battalion surrendered rather than resist the 40,000 strong attacking force.[28][29] After sporadic gunfire throughout the building, the cabinet of the Provisional Government surrendered, and were imprisoned in Peter and Paul Fortress. The only member who was not arrested was Kerensky himself, who had already left the palace.[24][30]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_Revolution#Assault_on_the_Winter_Palace
