Meet Ray Epps: The Fed-Protected Provocateur Who Appears To Have Led The Very First 1/6 Attack On The U.S. Capitol

by RevolverNews

In a House hearing on Thursday, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) questioned AG Merrick Garland about a mysterious man, Ray Epps, instructing protesters to enter the US Capitol building on January 5, and who later shepherded crowds towards the Capitol on January 6.

There is good reason why AG Garland ran from Massie’s question faster than he could find words — and why he couldn’t even keep eye contact as he was dodging Massie’s gaze.

After months of research, Revolver’s investigative reporting team can now reveal that Ray Epps appears to be among the primary orchestrators of the very first breach of the Capitol’s police barricades at 12:50pm on January 6. Epps appears to have led the “breach team” that committed the very first illegal acts on that fateful day. What’s more, Epps and his “breach team” did all their dirty work with 10 minutes still remaining in President Trump’s National Mall speech, and with the vast majority of Trump supporters still 30 minutes away from the Capitol.

Secondly, Revolver also determined, and will prove below, that the the FBI stealthily removed Ray Epps from its Capitol Violence Most Wanted List on July 1, just one day after Revolver exposed the inexplicable and puzzlesome FBI protection of known Epps associate and Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes. July 1 was also just one day after separate New York Times report amplified a glaring, falsifiable lie about Epps’s role in the events of January 6.

Lastly, Ray Epps appears to have worked alongside several individuals — many of them suspiciously unindicted — to carry out a breach of the police barricades that induced a subsequent flood of unsuspecting MAGA protesters to unwittingly trespass on Capitol restricted grounds and place themselves in legal jeopardy.

Corroborating Ray Epps’s Identity

Identifying the individual in Thomas Massie’s video as Ray Epps was a surprisingly quick and easy task for the Internet.

The story of the mystery man, Ray Epps, featured in Rep. Massie’s video above is in fact far more shocking than even the good Congressman implies in the hearing. It’s a story so strange, and so scandalous at every turn, that it threatens to shatter the entire official narrative of the “Capitol Breach” and expose yet another dimension of proactive federal involvement in the so-called “insurrection” of January 6th.

If Revolver News’s previous reporting points to a proactive role of the federal government in relation to the conspiracy cases against Oath Keepers and Proud Boys, the Ray Epps story that follows suggests a similar, yet more egregious, explicit, direct and immediate degree of federal involvement in the breach of the Capitol itself.

Here is a transcript of Thomas Massie’s exchange with the Attorney General, just in case you skipped past the video above.

Rep. Massie: As far as we can determine, the individual who was saying he’ll probably go to jail, he’ll probably be arrested, but they need to go into the Capitol the next day, is then directing people into the Capitol the next day, is then the next day directing people to the Capitol. And as far as we can find. You said this is one of the most sweeping in history. Have you seen that video, or those frames from that video?

AG Garland: So as I said at the outset, one of the norms of the Justice Department is to not comment on pending investigations, and particularly not to comment on particular scenes or particular individuals.

Rep. Massie: I was hoping today to give you an opportunity to put to rest the concerns that people have that there were federal agents or assets of the federal government present on January 5 and January 6. Can you tell us, without talking about particular incidents or particular videos, how many agents or assets of the federal government were present on January 6, whether they agitated to go into the Capitol, and if any of them did?

AG Garland: So I’m not going to violate this norm of, uh, of, of, of, the rule of law.

[Looks down and away]

I’m not going to comment on an investigation that’s ongoing.

There is good reason why AG Garland ran from Massie’s question faster than he could find words — and why he couldn’t even keep eye contact as he was dodging Massie’s gaze.

The Shotgun

                                  This is coming to America if we don’t stand up against the socialist Left….

 

 You're sound asleep when  you hear a thump outside your bedroom door.  Half-awake, and nearly  paralyzed with fear, you hear muffled whispers.
 
At least two people have  broken into your house and are moving your way.  With your heart pumping, you reach down beside your bed and pick up your shotgun.  You rack a shell into the chamber, then inch toward the door and open  it... 

In the darkness, you make out two shadows.  One holds something that  looks like a  crowbar.  When the intruder brandishes it as if to strike, you raise the  shotgun and fire.  The blast knocks both  thugs to the floor.  One writhes and screams while the second man crawls to the front door and lurches outside.

 As you pick up the telephone to call police, you know you're in  trouble.In your country, most guns were outlawed years before, and the few that are privately owned are so stringently regulated as to make them useless.  Yours was never registered.

  Police arrive and inform you that the second burglar has died.They arrest you for First Degree Murder and Illegal Possession of a Firearm. 

 When you talk to your attorney, he tells you not to worry: authorities will probably plea the case down to manslaughter.

"What kind of sentence will I get?" you ask.

 "Only ten-to-twelve  years," he replies, as if that's nothing.  "Behave yourself, and you'll be out in seven."

 The next day, the shooting is the lead story in the local newspaper.

Somehow, you're portrayed as an eccentric vigilante while the two men you shot are  represented as choirboys.

  Their friends and relatives can't find an unkind word to say about them.

Buried deep down in the article, authorities acknowledge that both "victims" have been arrested numerous times.

 But the next day's headline says it  all: "Lovable Rogue Son Didn't Deserve to Die."

The thieves have been transformed from career criminals into Robin Hood-type pranksters.

 As the days wear on, the story takes wings. The  national media picks it up, then the international media.  The surviving burglar has become a folk  hero.  Your attorney says the thief is preparing to sue you, and he'll probably win.

 The media publishes reports that your home has been burglarized several times in the past and that you've been critical of local police for their lack of effort in apprehending the suspects.

 After the last break-in, you told your neighbor that you would be prepared next time.

 The  District Attorney uses this to allege that you were lying in wait for the burglars.

 A  few months later, you go to trial.  The  charges haven't been reduced, as  your lawyer had so confidently predicted.  When you take the stand, your anger at the injustice of it all works against you.

 Prosecutors paint a picture of you as a mean, vengeful man.  It doesn't take long for the jury to convict you of all charges.  The judge sentences you to life in prison.

  

 

This case really  happened.

 On  August 22, 1999, Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk,  England, killed one burglar and wounded a  second.

 In  April, 2000, he was convicted  and  is now serving a life  term.

How did it become a crime to defend one's own life in the once great British Empire?

  It started with the Pistols Act of 1903.

 This seemingly reasonable law forbade selling pistols to minors or felons and established that handgun sales were to be made only to  those who had a license.

 The Firearms Act of 1920 expanded licensing to include not only handguns but all firearms except shotguns..

 Later laws passed in 1953 and 1967 outlawed the carrying of any weapon by private citizens and mandated the registration of all shotguns.

 Momentum for total handgun confiscation began in earnest after the Hungerford mass shooting in 1987. 

  Michael  Ryan, a mentally disturbed man with a Kalashnikov rifle, walked down the street shooting everyone he  saw.  When the  smoke cleared, 17 people were dead.

The British public, already de-sensitized by eighty years of "gun  control", demanded even tougher restrictions.  (The seizure of all privately owned handguns was the objective even though Ryan used a rifle.)


Nine years later, at Dunblane, Scotland, Thomas Hamilton used a  semi-automatic weapon to murder 16 children and a teacher at a public school.

For many  years, the media had portrayed all gun owners as mentally unstable, or worse, criminals. Now the press had a real kook with which to beat up law-abiding  gun owners.

 Day after day, week after week, the media gave up all pretense of objectivity and demanded a total ban on all handguns.  The Dunblane Inquiry, a few months later, sealed the fate of the few sidearm's still owned by private citizens.

During the years in which the British government incrementally took away most gun rights, the notion that a citizen had the right to armed self-defense came to be seen as vigilantism.

 Authorities refused to grant gun licenses to people who were threatened, claiming that self-defense was no longer considered a reason to own a gun.  Citizens who shot burglars or robbers or rapists were charged while the real criminals were released.
Indeed,  after the Martin shooting, a police spokesman was quoted  as saying,  "We cannot have people take the law into their own hands."

All of Tony
 Martin's neighbors had been robbed numerous times, and several elderly people were severely injured in beatings by young thugs who had no fear of the  consequences.  Martin himself, a collector of antiques, had seen most of his collection trashed or stolen by burglars.

When the  Dunblane Inquiry ended, citizens who owned handguns were given three months to turn them over to local  authorities.


Being good British subjects, most people obeyed the law. 
The few who didn't were visited by police and threatened with ten-year prison sentences if they didn't  comply.


Police  later bragged that they'd taken nearly 200,000  handguns from private citizens.


How did the authorities know who had handguns? . . .


The guns had been registered and  licensed.
Kind of like cars. Sound familiar?


WAKE UP AMERICA;

 THIS IS  WHY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS PUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT IN OUR CONSTITUTION.

"...It does not require a  majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's  minds.."

WOW! TIME Magazine Admits in Great Detail How 2020 Election Was Rigged Against Trump by Secret Cabal of Wealthy and Politically Connected Elites



For weeks after the 2020 election President Trump and anyone paying attention argued the election was rigged.

President Trump even warned months before the election that the only way Republicans could lose was in a rigged election.

Trump was right.

And today TIME Magazine even admitted in a long and detailed screed by leftist Molly Ball that a secret cabal of wealthy and politically connected elites joined together to rig the election against Trump.

This is a confession

Rigged.

I just want to say that it is the opposite of Democracy when a secret cabal of wealthy and politically connected elites conspire to manipulate the rules and laws of an election in order to win But shit, not like this is a new story...

The Supreme Court is still scheduled to decide on the illegal moves by Pennsylvania officials before the 2020 election.

The alliance of Trump-haters was even behind the illegal moves by far-left swing state officials to change voter laws without consent of the state legislatures.
TIME Magazine cheers this.

It was the definition of “rigged.”

So were they behind the illegal late-night ballot dumps too?

Molly Ball at TIME Magazine reported:

There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain–inspired by the summer’s massive, sometimes destructive racial-justice protests–in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy.

The handshake between business and labor was just one component of a vast, cross-partisan campaign to protect the election–an extraordinary shadow effort dedicated not to winning the vote but to ensuring it would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted. For more than a year, a loosely organized coalition of operatives scrambled to shore up America’s institutions as they came under simultaneous attack from a remorseless pandemic and an autocratically inclined President. Though much of this activity took place on the left, it was separate from the Biden campaign and crossed ideological lines, with crucial contributions by nonpartisan and conservative actors. The scenario the shadow campaigners were desperate to stop was not a Trump victory. It was an election so calamitous that no result could be discerned at all, a failure of the central act of democratic self-governance that has been a hallmark of America since its founding.

Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction. After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result. “The untold story of the election is the thousands of people of both parties who accomplished the triumph of American democracy at its very foundation,” says Norm Eisen, a prominent lawyer and former Obama Administration official who recruited Republicans and Democrats to the board of the Voter Protection Program.
