There are hundreds of protesters from the January 6 incident at the Capitol languishing in a special cell block in a D.C. prison in solitary confinement. The most well known is “QAnon Shaman,” Jacob Chansley. In shades of Stalinist Russia, he has been moved to a federal prison in Colorado for the infamous “forensic evaluation.” If found too ill to stand trial he no doubt will be sent to a mental institution until such time as he is “fit to stand trial.”
These poor souls are not getting the attention they deserve. They are being rounded up all over America.
NBC News reporter Scott MacFarlane reported Monday that the so-called “QAnon Shaman,” Jacob Chansley, is being transferred from the jail in Alexandria, Virginia, to Colorado where he’ll undergo a forensic evaluation, according to the Justice Department.
“Specific details were confirmed with the government that that use of a spear or a finial on a spear dates to the Native Americans, a fact consistent with the Shamanic faith of the defendant,” the motion continues. “It was further noted for the government that the U.S. Army uses the spear finial with open wings on the sides, however, the traditional Native American design only contains the central point, akin to the defendant’s flagpole.”

A federal judge ruled Monday that the man often called the “QAnon Shaman” must remain in jail pending his trial for his role in the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol because he remains a threat to the public.
Judge Royce Lamberth said in his order rejecting Jacob Chansley’s request for release that “no condition or combination of conditions” would ensure Chansley’s return to court if he were released.
Lamberth said Chansley believes his actions during the siege of the Capitol, an attack in which five people died, were peaceful. That mindset, Lamberth wrote, shows “a detachment from reality.”
“Defendant characterizes himself as a peaceful person who was welcomed into the Capitol building on January 6th by police officers,” Lamberth wrote in the order. “The Court finds none of his many attempts to manipulate the evidence and minimize the seriousness of his actions persuasive.”
Lamberth declined to release him and focused, in part, on the accusation that Chansley stormed the Capitol with a dangerous weapon. Chansley’s attorney described it as a flagpole with a “spear finial.”
Little of the reported 12000 hours of footage from January 6 has been released. Yet those accused have no access. No one died from the so called “armed insurrection” except one of the protesters. Thanks to Rumble we have this one.
One officer, identified in the video and confirmed by charging documents as Officer Keith Robishaw, appears to tell Chansely’s group they won’t stop them from entering the building. “We’re not against . . . you need to show us . . . no attacking, no assault, remain calm,” Robishaw warns. Chansley and another protestor instruct the crowd to act peacefully. “This has to be peaceful,” Chansley yelled. “We have the right to peacefully assemble.”
Welcome to America. The best of the swamp today.
