On January 7, one day after the Capitol riots, yours truly was assuring you that “there is no doubt in my mind that Antifa infiltrators were involved in the riots“, and I presented evidence that this was their regular practice. And I suggested that the whole truth will come out before long… Yesterday the evidence was finally presented as John Sullivan, an Antifa infiltrator was arrested: His brother called the FBI and gave him in stressing that he was not simply an anonymous infiltrator but a leader (please watch the first video below). In the second video, CNN-NPR Photo-Journalist Jade Sacker was embedded with John Sullivan during the siege of the US Capitol who cheered “We Did It!” after inciting the riot…
Meanwhile, we learned that Antifa Already Had A Protest In Capitol Before Trump Finished Speaking At The Ellipse… Now we understand why the Democrats rushed the impeachment proceedings before the truth would be clear to all… If their goal was to separate Trump from his supporters this was a desperate goal… Even inexperienced people in politics would understand that this goal cannot be achieved by just personal attacks on the President. These attacks make Donald Trump an even bigger hero than he already is among his more than 75 million voters… Already, Rasmussen shows Trump with a 49% approval at the end of his term, more than almost any other president in recent history!!!
If the Democrats keep playing this stupid game, including the illegalities involving censorship of free speech by the “geeks” of social media, very soon they will lose even more ground than they already have… Already Biden’s inauguration looks more like a funeral than a happy occasion. Has anybody ever seen more miserable (supposed) winners of an election?
The self-styled civil rights activist charged in the US Capitol riots is a former Olympic speed skater — and alleged conman accused of trying to sabotage left-wing movements under the name “Activist John.”
The checkered past of John Sullivan — the Utah man who claimed he embedded himself among the pro-Trumpers to record the storming of the Capitol last week — has many questioning the black, left-wing activist’s true motive.
The 26-year-old competed in the 2018 Olympic trials and appeared in a 2016 commercial for Uber that’s since been made private. At one point, his Twitter page was filled with posts about fulfilling his skating dreams.
But somewhere along the way, Sullivan shifted his sights to activism.
He founded Insurgence USA, a protest group for “racial justice and police reform,” and began referring to himself as “Activist John” — filling his Twitter feeds with anti-President Trump rhetoric and posts supporting Black Lives Matter, as well as about his participation in recent protests.
He documented his day infiltrating the Jan. 6 MAGA riot on his account, @realjaydenx, posting snippets of the footage he shot on his phone of the chaos inside the Capitol building — and the fatal shooting of QAnon supporter Ashli Babbitt.
“I was worried about people recognizing me and thinking that I was Antifa or, like, BLM or whatever,” he told the outlet. “The entire time they’re yelling, ‘F— Antifa! F—, BLM.’ I’m not saying I’m Antifa, by any means. But I definitely believe Black Lives Matter.”
But in Sullivan’s own videos, he can be heard enthusiastically egging on the saboteurs, at one point yelling, “It’s our house, motherf—ers!”
His true motives have already been called into question by leftist activist groups online, including Rebellion Baby, which tweeted an extensive takedown accusing him of being an “infiltrator/agent provocateur.”
“John has been kicked from the #SaltLakeCity and #Portland protest scenes due to alarming behaviors including grifting/profiteering, self-promotion/clout chasing, sabotage of community actions, threats of violence, and — maybe most disturbingly — ties to the far-right,” the group tweeted on Nov. 26.
Sullivan is facing riot and criminal mischief charges for his participation in a Black Lives Matter protest in Utah in June, according to Rolling Stone.
But Rebellion Baby also pointed to Sullivan’s brother, James Sullivan, a Trump diehard who founded the conservative political organization Civilized Awakening. The group, they alleged, has “strong ties to Proud Poys — even having spoken at a Proud Boy rally.”
“The brothers’ polarized political stances conveniently bolster the other’s public personas,” Rebellion Baby noted.
In a post Friday on Facebook, James Sullivan defended his brother, writing that he knew him to be “a patriotic athlete who had a dream to represent his country at the world games as a speed skater.”
“Mainstream media corrupts, it’s important to stay wary and educated,” he wrote.
On Thursday, Rebellion Baby posted another lengthy thread calling out John Sullivan’s post-siege behavior as being dangerously narcissistic and posting a CNN clip in which he discusses witnessing Babbitt’s death.
Trump supporters, meanwhile, have seized on Sullivan’s participation in the riots to boost their claims that Antifa infiltrated their circle and instigated the deadly siege.
A clip circulated on social media shows Sullivan with filmmaker Jade Sacker cheering right after reaching the Capitol Rotunda.
“You were right, we did it!” Sacker tells Sullivan.
“I was trying to tell you — I couldn’t say much. Is this not going to be the best film you ever made in your life?” he replies.
Sullivan is federally charged with knowingly entering a restricted area, violent entry, disorderly conduct and interfering with law enforcement. A virtual court appearance is scheduled for Friday afternoon. It is unclear if he’s hired an attorney.
He’s claimed to be a journalist, telling law enforcement and media outlets that he was only inside the Capitol building to “document and report,” according to an affidavit.
But an FBI special agent noted “he has admitted, however, that he has no press credentials and the investigation has not revealed any connection between Sullivan and any journalistic organizations.”
