Believers Memorialize Those Killed on Jan. 6, 2021

Believers remembered Jan. 6, 2021, with a pair of events memorializing the four who died that day, beginning with a press conference held inside the Capitol by U.S. Reps. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., and Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga. This replaced a suddenly-canceled press conference with former President Donald J. Trump.

Gaetz opened the press conference by saying, "It was not an insurrection, but a fedsurrection," referencing breaking information from journalist Darren Beatty who, after extensive reporting, discovered a well-planned and coordinated attack, mirroring the one on Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The Capitol attack featured suspected FBI plants Ray Epps, Stuart Rhodes, John Sullivan and others still unidentified, who are seen in numerous videos urging the unsuspecting Trump supporters on Jan. 5 to "go into the Capitol." This resulted in the immediate reaction of the president's supporters of "Fed! Fed! Fed!" as they, on the record, pushed back against Epps' urging entrance to the Capitol.

Reference to the Michigan attempt at assassinating the unpopular governor discovered that out of the 14 involved in the supposed plot, an amazing 12 were in fact federal agents and the whole plot has completely unwound with marked similarity to the Jan. 6 conspiracy. This was identified by the two congressmen, who referenced the reporting by

In a series of videos, first presented publicly in House hearings in December, Gaetz and Greene clearly outlined how well-organized professionals first removed the fencing from the Capitol complex so those coming for the first time would have no idea they were entering a restricted area.

Further, Epps and others show up multiple times in the videos, urging unsuspecting rally attendees to move toward the Capitol, with another, still-unidentified alleged FBI plant standing atop of a large platform and shouting nonstop to the innocent rally attendees to "enter the Capitol."

Gaetz and Greene challenged the attending media to continue the investigation, saying, "This was an obvious setup by the government: to put its agents into an unsuspecting crowd, to keep them from knowing there were restrictions where they were, and to push them on to enter the Capitol. You can clearly see this from these videos, which have been discovered not by the so-called committee but by regular citizens and small media."

Participants in the violent summer riots left an estimated $2 billion in damage; 2,000 police officers injured; 624 fires and 16,200 arrests, with nearly 90% having charges dropped.

As Jan. 6, 2022 wound to a close, a group of believers lit candles, sang "God Bless America" and said the Pledge of Allegiance. They were led by Micki Witthoeft, the mother of Ashli Babbit, who was murdered by Capitol Police officer Mike Byrd. The remaining three killed that day included Roseanne Borland, who was beaten by another Capitol Police officer; Kevin Gerson; and Benjamin Phillips.

Most people are unaware that the Capitol Complex has always been open to the public, with individuals regularly "arrested" in the Capitol for violent sit-ins, for occupying offices—released without exception with, at worst, a fine but otherwise escorted out. These circumstances provided the foundation for the rally: the shocking dual justice system, a clear case of third-world dictatorship and political persecution, with many still imprisoned nine months later.

Matt Braynard, director of Look Ahead America and former Trump campaign staffer, led the rally in front of the Washington , D.C., Central Detention Facility to remember Jan. 6 and to encourage the 39 political prisoners still being held nearly a year after the event.

"This is America—it is supposed to be equal justice under the law," Braynard said. "If we don't stand up now, there will never be a chance to stand up." He urged supporters to join the upcoming nationwide rallies demanding immediate freedom for the peaceful participants of the Jan. 6 rally, many nearing their ninth month in prison.

Isaiah 1:17 (ESV) says, "Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause." As bestselling author of God and Cancel Culture Stephen Strang say in his book God, Trump, and the 2020 Election, "I believe there are spiritual forces at work that the Bible calls spiritual warfare."
