Justice for Ashli Babbit?

The death of Air Force veteran Ashli Babbit at the hands of a Capitol Hill Police officer last Wednesday is either murder or manslaughter.

Anyone who has ever taken a Concealed Carry Weapons class knows that you can only use deadly force–i.e. shoot someone with a pistol–in order to prevent the imminent and otherwise unavoidable danger of death or grave bodily harm to yourself or a bystander.

Ashli Babbit did not have a weapon of any kind in hand or on her person. She was not assaulting the officer. Yet the officer fired. No excuse under the circumstances visible on the video of the incident.

It is possible that the guilty officer (yes, he’s guilty of shooting an unarmed person, that’s a fact) will be charged with involuntary manslaughter–i.e., he stupidly put his finger on the trigger and fired accidentally. Maybe he did not mean to do it, but under the law if you fire a gun you are responsible for every single bullet. Ignorance nor carelessness are proper, acceptable excuses.

But if it was not an accident, then we are talking murder. A much more severe crime.

After enduring more than nine months of BLM caterwauling about police brutality, we have a classic case with the murder of Ashli Babbit and the media and the Democrat horde are mute. Instead of outrage and further protests, silence has fallen over the Capitol accompanied by self-righteous hypocrisy streaming from cowardly politicians–Democrat and Republican–who label legitimate protestors as insurrectionists and insist that Ashli got her just deserts.

The reaction of the Washington establishment to the murder of this veteran and a young mother is but one more symptom of the craven corruption and moral rot that infests Washington, DC.

The Democrats, buoyed by a pliant media and rapacious corporations, are opting for Stalinist tactics as the President, along with many of his supporters, are banned from internet media and verbally assaulted. They have crossed a line and set in motion a push-back by the majority of voters who turned out for Trump.

I fear the lesson the Trump supporters will draw from the Ashli Babbit tragedy is, “don’t bring a flag to a gun fight.”

BREAKING: Parler CEO Responds to Amazon Hosting Ban — Says It’s a ‘Coordinated Attack By Tech Giants to Kill Competition’

Parler CEO John Matze has responded to Amazon kicking the platform off their hosting services, calling it a “coordinated attack.”

On Saturday, Amazon kicked Parler off their webhosting service, meaning the platform will be offline until they find a new host.

The ban goes into effect on Sunday, effectively shutting down the platform that conservatives have flocked to since the big tech giants began banning conservatives.

In a post on Parler, Matze wrote that “Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet. There is the possibility Parler will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch. We prepared for events like this by never relying on amazons proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products.”

“We will try our best to move to a new provider right now as we have many competing for our business, however Amazon, Google and Apple purposefully did this as a coordinated effort knowing our options would be limited and knowing this would inflict the most damage right as President Trump was banned from the tech companies,” the statement continued.

Matze concluded that “this was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place. We were too successful too fast. You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don’t count us out.”

Parler has faced what can only be described as a mass coordinated cyber attack by Big Tech, first being banned by Apple and Google within a 24 hour time period.

Amazon’s employees had been lobbying for the platform to be booted so that they could further silence their political adversaries.

In an email obtained by BuzzFeed News, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Trust and Safety team told Parler Chief Policy Officer Amy Peikoff that “the calls for violence propagating across Parler violated its terms of service and that Amazon is unconvinced that the service’s plan to use volunteers to moderate such things will be effective.”

Of course, they did no such bans when Black Lives Matter was planning riots across Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Tik Tok last year.

“Recently, we’ve seen a steady increase in this violent content on your website, all of which violates our terms. It’s clear that Parler does not have an effective process to comply with the AWS terms of service,” the email reads. “[W]e cannot provide services to a customer that is unable to effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence against others,” the email reads. “Because Parler cannot comply with our terms of service and poses a very real risk to public safety, we plan to suspend Parler’s account effective Sunday, January 10th, at 11:59PM PST.”

In a post on Parler about Apple’s decision to ban them from the app store earlier in the day, CEO John Matze wrote, “Apple will be banning Parler until we give up free speech, institute broad and invasive policies like Twitter and Facebook and we become a surveillance platform by pursuing guilt of those who use Parler before innocence.”

“They claim it is due to violence on the platform. The community disagrees as we hit number 1 on their store today. The same day ‘Hang Mike Pence’, a disgusting violent suggestion, was trending nationally on Twitter. Displaying the horrible double standard Apple and their big tech pack apply to the community,” the statement contined. “Apple, a software monopoly, provides no alternatives to installing apps on your phone other then their store. We do not own our phones, Apple simply rents them to us. Apple, Google and the rest of the anti-competitive pack of big tech tyrants coordinate their moves and work together to stifle competition in the marketplace.”

“More details about our next plans coming soon as we have many options,” Matze concluded.

The ban goes into effect on Sunday, January 10th, at 11:59PM PST. 

Big tech has also been banning Trump supporters and allies at a record pace. They want you silenced.

NEW VIDEO: Antifa Hands Out Weapons from Bag During Storming of US Capitol

A new video was released that shows Antifa terrorists handing out weapons to their comrades during the storming of the US Capitol.

Clear evidence. SHARE THIS VIDEO!

— Donald J. Trump Team Trumpsec Saturday, January 9, 2021

This should come as no surprise for Gateway Pundit readers. As we reported earlier today Antifa organized a rally near the US Capitol on Wednesday.

On Friday investigative journalist Millie Weaver ran into Antifa activist and protest leader John Sullivan in Washington DC.

She overheard him say he was not being charged.

How many of his Antifa buddies were with him?

John Sullivan tweeted about BLM buses in DC during the “Stop the Steal” rally.

So BLM sent in busses of radicals for the ‘Stop the Steal’ rally?
This is all starting to come together now

Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch Suspended from Twitter for 7 Days

Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch has also been censored by Twitter for 7 days. 

Big Tech, Big Media, the Democrats and foreign states are doing all they can to prevent any mention of Joe Biden’s election steal away from President Trump.  We’ve never seen anything like this is a country that once valued free speech.

This week we saw numerous individuals censored on Twitter, including the President of the United States.  Fitton shared this on Parler:

The US Congress created monsters when they gave Big Tech special privileges in running their operations.  They are not held accountable for the things people say on their platforms yet they can censor the content that they want, preventing free speech.
