Permanent Washington is using January 6 to settle old scores.

People who oppose or simply question the Washington, D.C. Swamp are being treated like terrorists.

And Merrick Garland just took the January 6 witch hunt to a disturbing new level.

The establishment has argued with a straight face that the Capitol Hill riot was worse than Pearl Harbor and 9/11.

People who were simply in Washington, D.C. on that day and attended the rally have been put on no-fly lists and much worse.

Now journalists are being arrested.

Making the DOJ look bad is a crime

Investigative Journalist Steve Baker, who was at the January 6 protest in the capacity of a reporter, was just perp-walked by the FBI.

Prior to his arrest, Baker wrote on Twitter, “The prosecutor informed my attorney that I am to arrive at the FBI field office wearing ‘shorts and sandals.’ They didn’t have to go this route, as we’ve been told that my charges are non-violent misdemeanors. My attorneys have also been assured by the gov. that this will be an ‘in and out’ affair and that they have ‘no intention’ of detaining me. But, rather than issuing a simple order to appear, they seem to feel the need to give me a dose of the personal humiliation treatment. We do not yet know the specific charges. Technically … they are still ‘under seal’ until the warrant is served. All else is as yet unknown. By this weekend, I will officially be a misdemeanor domestic journo-terrorist. (Something like that.) And so it begins…”

Baker has been one of the journalists most instrumental in exposing many of the lies parroted about January 6.

For example, Baker spoke with Capitol Police Officers who contradicted the official narrative about how the building was overrun on January 6 and why the security failure was so acute.

Banana republic territory

The Blaze reported that Baker was charged with “Knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; Disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds; Disorderly conduct in a capitol building; Parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a capitol building.”

Baker’s attorneys pointed out that the Department of Justice has known about Baker’s “crimes” for years, and did nothing.

They argued that “it is only now — after Steve has broken two major stories greatly embarrassing to the DOJ — that he is possibly being targeted for arrest and possibly felony prosecution. Any action taken to put him in handcuffs, hold him in custody, and have him transported to court by federal law enforcement will be nothing other than retaliation for his recent reporting.”

The Democrats and their media allies have screeched about the end of democracy and threats to the press, but they are eerily silent on the arrest of Baker for clearly political reasons.
