‘Deadly Insurrection?’ Capitol Police Officer Died of ‘Blood Clot’ – Not Capitol Riot Injuries

ANALYSIS – In yet another blow to the deceptive narrative that the unarmed riot at the Capitol on January 6 was a ‘deadly insurrection,’ the D.C. medical examiner announced that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick suffered two strokes caused by a clot and died of natural causes the day after the riot at the U.S. Capitol Building. He did not die of any injuries sustained that day.

With this finding, we now know that the only person killed during this ‘deadly insurrection’ was an unarmed female rioter shot by the Capitol Police.

I had noted repeatedly that Sicknick’s cause of death was likely caused by a stroke based on comments from his family, and that it was odd that the autopsy took months to complete, yet the major media continued to imply he was killed by rioters.

As soon as Sicknick died the New York Times quickly reported that he was struck by a fire extinguisher, according to law enforcement officials. Later when that story proved false, two men were accused of spraying Sicknick with a chemical irritant, likely bear spray., in an attempt to continue the false narrative that the officer died at the hands of ‘deadly insurrectionists.’

But the examiner, Francisco J. Diaz, told the Washington Post on Monday that the autopsy found no evidence that Sicknick suffered an allergic reaction to chemical irritants. Diaz said that “all that transpired” during the events of January 6 “played a role in his condition.”

Due to privacy laws Diaz could not comment on whether Sicknick had any preexisting medical conditions that may have contributed to his death. The Washington Post noted that his ruling “likely will make it difficult for prosecutors to pursue homicide charges in the officer’s death.”

In a statement the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) said:

The USCP accepts the findings from the Office of the Medical Examiner, but this does not change the fact Officer Brian Sicknick died in the Line of Duty, courageously defending Congress and the Capitol. The Department continues to mourn the loss of our beloved colleague.

While Sicknick was a hero who was violently attacked, this latest news has fully debunked the ‘deadly insurrection’ narrative, as the only person directly killed during the Capitol riot was Ashli Babitt, an unarmed female veteran shot by Capitol Police. The officer involved was cleared in the shooting, though many believe the officer may have overreacted.

The other three reported deaths during the riot were all civilians who, according to USA Today, either died of natural causes, or in one case, of a drug overdose. None of the three were reported as being inside the Capitol when they died, but were simply somewhere in the crowd outside.

‘Deadly Insurrection’ narrative – 0, Truth – 1. ADN

I myth busted the Wuhan Sniffles as soon as it started here in the USA! A LOT OF INTERESTING ANOMOLIES!!! In the New York Times they said that 60,000 people died in New York City an called it the Epicenter of Coronavirus in the USA! The anomoly was that in the obituaries column of the same paper it stated that only 2 people had died that same week 1 in Queens and 1 in the Bronx neither of Coronavirus! I guess the DemoRAT party forgot to pay off the person writing the obituaries column and he forgot to go along with the front page lie! With every human body mandated by federal regulation to be put into a coffin when they are dead how did they get all of those bodies into 217 coffins??????? that was the sales figures for Batesville Casket Company, Americas Largest Coffin Mfr. which was 20 fewer than sold the same month in 2019, I don’t care how good you are at Tetris 60,000 bodies in New York City will not fit into 217 coffins! How is it that 1 hospital in New York City closed its doors during the 60,000 dying in their city due to lack of customers? Interesting wouldn’t you say? They were 1 of 6 nation wide to close their doors due to lack of customers due to people being afraid they would catch the virus that was made up to steal the 2020 Election and now they are keeping up with the lie to steal each and every right we as Americans have had for over a century!

This is why the left was not then, and is not now the least bit interested in the ‘Evidence’. It muddies up the waters of their fabricated narrative. The truth is simply never an advantage for the left. So, they do all they can to ignore, obviate, or simply bury the truth if it should ever attempt to raise its head.

The Republican politicians may be spineless but those of us (million+) who stood for freedom on January 6 were steeled in our determination to protest a fraudulent election. It was not an “armed insurrection” as the MSM and DemocRATS tried to portray. There were some who went beyond the boundaries of the law and will have to pay the penalty but 99.99999999999% of those there were peaceful and respectful of the police.
it has already been shown that if the authorities had heeded the advanced intelligence the Capital could have been properly defended no Capital breach would have occurred.

Isn’t it interesting how “long” these investigations have taken — both of the D.C. break in and the fraudulent election. It’s as if someone has put our lives on “pause” so people will forget what is actually being investigated. Doing that is unacceptable and those in charge should receive a good hard kick in the butt!!

As much as the lying manipulative democrats created the disaster of the D.C. break in so Pelosi can try to Impeach President Trump once again by saying P.T. “incited” that event, which he never did, the democrats have once again PROVEN what pathetic GIANT SCHEMERS they really are! It has been proven that the only people at the break in destroying things were actually ANTIFA AND BLM MEMBERS (the dem’s own ATTACK DOGS RECRUITED BY THE DEMS) DRESSED LIKE TRUMP SUPPORTERS. I, for one, remember seeing video footage of an Antifa member and BLM member jumping up and high fiving each other saying “We did it!” Yes, they were dressed like Trump Supporters. They looked very foreign in Trump supporter garb and stood out like a red swollen thumb. Why the Media didn’t see that I’ll never know. Guess they got “paid” to look elsewhere.

We definitely are in a Battle of Good vs Evil…and so far, evil is winning! How come Americans? Why are you letting evil into our lives and not fighting back? Why are you letting evil control what you do and believe? Where did you stick God and why isn’t He leading you forward.

America has a GIANT PROBLEM AMERICANS…AND IT IS ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE UNLESS YOU FIGHT ITS CONTROL IT HAS ON YOU! Unfortunately, too many people aren’t even aware of what is happening to them…but evil knows.

Yes indeed! I would like to know the name of the man (or was it a woman?) officer that murdered (er, shot) Ashli Babbitt! How come we have the names of police officers who shoot a black female befoe she can stab another black female to death, but we can’t know the name of Ashli Babbitt’s killer? – Yeah, I know – communist propaganda!

3 PLUS MONTHS FOR AN AUTOPSY IS A LONG TIME… HE WAS BURIED WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF DEATH… SOMETHING SMELLS AND IT IS NOT THE CORPSE.

MEANWHILE, THEY ARE PROTECTING THE BLACK FEDERAL CAPITOL COP WHO SHOT AND MURDERED AN UNARMED MIDDLEAGED FEMALE AT POINT BLANK RANGE.. ASHLI BABBITT A PATRIOT…… THE ONLY DEATH WHICH ACTUALLY OCCURED DURING THE RIOT.

THEY TRIED TO BLAME THE RIOTERS FOR 2 SUICIDES BY CAPITOL POLICE NOT INJURED DURING THE RIOT BUT WHO CASHED IT IN…FOR INCOMPETENCE OR COWARDICE.. OR MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES……BY COMMITTING SUICIDE IN THE DAYS FOLLOWING……

I saw the video of Ashli Babbit getting shot. In the video the Capitol Officer took careful aim from perhaps ten to fifteen feet away and then shot this unarmed woman. In this case it was definitely an over reaction by the officer and should have required legal action against the officer in question. This is a whitewash of a murder, period.

would-be brag about his third term? Biden has promised him a spotl on
the supreme court for all of his writing of all these that he signed. I hope every state sues him. He worries about unemployment when he canceled the pipeline and is allowing open borders. for him to open his mouth about a trial, when the jury is out, is impeachment
. That, my friend is treason. He needs to be impeached.

I bet the FBI caught all them white supremists that supposedly invaded the capital, that were probably trump supporters, like cbswray likes to call them. Or was that all planned like we found out later, Trump had nothing to do with it.The FBI is lying like they have been for yrs,u can’t trust anything they say, until it’s restructured they are a danger for not doing their job, to busy spying on law abiding citizens. They knew about all the mass shootings, and the suspects still carried out their dirty deeds, no accountability for them,pathetic

Just another LIE from DC. The only person to die in the riot (If that is even the truth) was a women MURDERED by the United States Capitol Police. His name is not being released and they are in full cover up mode. That the truth is he MURDERED an UNARMED WOMEN. Every person that was so fast to lie about the real facts need to be fired from what ever their position is Congress Senate or News organizations.

And we should be surprised that the MSM ran with a bogus story??? This was no insurrection!!! This was sort of a riot??? led by some pretty goofy people. These people are now being treated like Taliban terrorists while people who killed, injured, and terrorized the country burning and destroying aren’t hunted down and if, I say if one is arrested he is given a pass!!!

Like many of you out there, I’ve read that the “unarmed female rioter” (Ashli Babbitt) was NOT shot by a Capitol Police Officer, but by a never identified member of one of the congress-persons personal / private security teams. I.E. – She wasn’t shot by a cop, she was shot by private armed security working for one of the congress critters who were present that day. Since even having private armed security could be very bad optics for a senator or representative who is busily engaged in trying to disarm all law abiding Americans and so forth, we never got the details on exactly WHO shot that poor woman. Do you honestly believe that an openly hostile US corporate media would try to PROTECT a police officer these days? Based on recent US media reporting in general, I’d find it far easier to believe that US corporate media would be first in line to play judge & jury and convict a cop in the court of public opinion, and to hell with any contrary facts or the rule of law.

Anyway, time passes and we’re seeing more & more articles going with the ASSUMPTION that it was a Capital Police Officer who must have shot that unarmed woman, when the simple truth is – outside of the very few people who were there that day and who saw everything with their own two eyes – NOBODY KNOWS. And those few who DO know are not allowed to speak under the full penalty of law. (Another detail to note is the amazing lack of leaks by people who were there that day, when so much of the reporting from Washington DC is largely comprised of nothing but never ending leaks from insiders speaking under the condition of anonymity.)

So, until we learn differently, I will keep reminding people that we don’t actually know WHO shot Ashli Babbitt, nor whether the shooter was a cop, or private armed security, or even possibly someone else entirely. We. Simply. Do. Not. Know.

Biden State Department official Price claimed that sanctions put in place by the Trump administration were designed for the sole purpose of making it harder for the Biden administration to rejoin the Iran agreement. AP reporter Matt Lee asked State Dept official Price eight times to name one sanction that the Trump administration improperly placed on Iran, Price could not. A CNN reporter called out the Biden administration for false statements about the Columbus shooting. That’s two reporters who have broken with with the all-in stance of corporate media. Might be wishful thinking but perhaps they are an indication that the mainstream media is starting to recognize that they’re biased reporting on Democrats is wrong, or at least that it is hurting their ratings because millions of Americans now recognize their duplicity.
It was just announced that the Justice Department is charging another one hundred plus persons who participated in the Capital riot, that will bring the total charged to over five hundred. Can someone find the number of persons charged for participating in the five hundred plus violent riots in cities across America in 2020? Did anyone see billboards put up by the FBI soliciting information on, or posting pictures of, persons they were looking to identify? At last report the FBI had received over 200,000 tips on their tipline helping to identify those in the Capital building, how many tips did they solicit or receive helping to identify the activists or looters involved in the riots of 2020?
BLM protestors stormed the Oklahoma Capital on April 21, 2021 during a legislative session forcing the statehouse into lock down and pausing the session. How many were charged for that ‘insurrection’ and why have so many news organizations ignored it? Yahoo posted the story, maybe two paragraphs describing the event while approximately fifteen paragraphs were dedicated to the supposed ‘why’ of the attack.
The attack on Jan. 6 was abhorrent, those who participated in violence or looting should be charged accordingly. But–those charges should not be any more or less severe than charges for similar actions by others in 2020. Media is only reporting on the most severe charges, ignoring that the majority are for misdemeanor trespass. That fact, like their constant claims that Sicknick died from a physical attack on Jan. 6, is to create a vision in the minds of their viewers that ALL who invaded the Capital were violent, a further effort by them to taint American’s perception of Trump supporters.
