If you Google “Darren Beattie,” you will know the power of algorithmic character assassination. His identity, according to the arbiter of reality that controls 92 percent of worldwide online searches, is defined by the fact that he attended a “white nationalist” rally. The actual transgression, if you want to call it that, was to speak at the Mencken Club, a group that takes its name and its inspiration from H.L. Menken, and like him, revel in the writer’s iconoclastic spirit.
If you review Darren Beattie’s work, you will find him to be a journalist and political commentator whose only flaw, if you want to call it that, is elitism. He doesn’t shrink from accusing his critics of low IQs. Problem is, they usually deserve it.
More to the point, Darren Beattie has characterized a recent investigative report on the always interesting, relatively new website Revolver, which he helped found, as “the most important piece we’ve ever published.” That’s a big statement, and it might just be true.
Titled “Unindicted Co-Conspirators in 1/6 Cases Raise Disturbing Questions of Federal Foreknowledge,” the article presents evidence that many of the most egregious actions committed by the mob during the January 6 capitol protest were done by provocateurs under the supervision of Federal agents.
Typically in cases where there are criminal cases, the informants are themselves indicted, then granted immunity in a plea deal in exchange for testimony. But in the cases pending against January 6 protesters, the witnesses are “unindicted co-conspirators.” Yet in many cases these individuals committed more serious crimes than the people who are sitting in jail awaiting trial.
Also noted in the lengthy report is a recap of the supposedly deadly plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. The article alleges that five of the eleven key individuals involved in that plot were Federal agents, and goes on to describe how these Federal agents encouraged the would be kidnappers and provided them material support right up until their arrest. Continuing, the article identifies some of the Federal agents running what might be characterized as an entrapment operation in Michigan as the same agents transferred to Washington DC and on the scene January 6th.
The sad reality of mainstream news today is there is very little that can be trusted. Revolver, while clearly hewing to its own set of biases, offers crucial balance. This article should be read, carefully, by anyone trying to better understand what’s really going on in America’s Federal government, and who is really in charge.
