For months, mainstream media outlets ran with the story that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was struck in the head with a fire extinguisher by Trump supporters, leading to his death. The claim reportedly came from anonymous law enforcement officials, but the U.S. Capitol Police’s statement about Sicknick—that he was injured “while physically engaging with protesters”—didn’t help. Despite the record being set straight months later by an autopsy report, some outlets never updated their stories while Democrats continued spreading the false claim.
In fact, President Biden has been among the worst offenders. Speaking about the Safer America Plan , Biden relayed a conversation he had with a counterpart at the 47th G7 Summit in England last June, suggesting Trump supporters killed “several police officers.”
CLAIM: “And one of them said to me, ‘Imagine, Joe, if you turned on the television in Washington, D.C., and saw a mob of a thousand people storming down the hallways of the parliament, breaking down the doors trying to overturn an outcome of election and killing several police officers in the meantime. Imagine. Imagine what you’d think.'”
FACTS: According to a Washington, D.C., medical examiner, Sicknick died of natural causes on Jan. 7 following “two strokes at the base of the brain stem caused by a clot in an artery that supplies blood to that area of the body,” The Washington Post reports.
Sicknick was assaulted with bear spray on Jan. 6 and two men have been charged, but neither the medical examiner nor prosecutors tied the chemical substance to his death.
The medical examiner’s office noted, “If death is hastened by an injury, the manner of death is not considered natural.”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
