Biden Set to Take January 6 Theater to the Next Level With New Awards

President Biden will award the Presidential Citizens Medal to 12 individuals on the second “anniversary” of the January 6th riot at the Capitol, with the recipients including several Capitol Police officers.

In yet another sign that Democrats are working feverishly to make events of January 6th the newest National Myth, Biden will present those involved that day with one of the country’s highest civilian honors.

The Citizens Medal recognizes those Americans “who have performed exemplary deeds of service for their country or their fellow citizens.”

On the list are Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman, a former officer and current CNN contributor Michael Fanone, Capitol Police Officer Caroline Edwards, and a posthumous award for Officer Brian Sicknick.

The award for Sicknick is meant to further perpetuate the myth that he died in the line of duty while defending the Capitol.

In reality, Sicknick died of a stroke after the riot, and his death was ruled by “natural” causes and not “hastened by an injury.”

Fanone, who has spread that misinformation in appearances on CNN, is known for his melodramatic testimony before the January 6th select committee, which even his own colleagues have criticized as playing to the national media.

He was dragged into a mob and beaten during the chaos at the Capitol and suffered a heart attack during the melee. The man who pulled him into the crowd was just sentenced to 90 months in prison, rightfully.

Spitting in the Face of Capt. David Dorn

Democrats have repeatedly tried to foment the narrative that January 6th was the worst act of violence they’ve seen perpetrated on American democracy since the Civil War.

Biden made the false claim that five Capitol police officers were killed during the Capitol riot while asking reporters to imagine a similar scenario happening at other locations of import.

“Look, how would you feel if you saw crowds storm and break down the doors of the British Parliament, kill five cops, injure 145 — or the German Bundestag or the Italian Parliament?” he asked.

Tensions escalated. Violence did take place. But “five cops” were not killed on January 6th. Zero cops were killed.

During last year’s anniversary celebration, outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held a candlelight vigil on the Capitol steps to honor the “heroes” who “lost their lives and sacrificed” on January 6.

She listed Sicknick along with police officer Billy Evans, who was killed months later by a Nation of Islam follower, officer Jeffrey Smith, who died on January 15th due to suicide, and officer Howard Liebengood, who died by suicide on January 9th.

It is important to remember that a total of four people died during the Capitol riot, but only unarmed Air Force veteran and avid supporter of former President Trump, Ashli Babbitt was killed.

She was killed by a Capitol Police officer.

Also important to note that Biden’s handing out of the Presidential Citizens Medal is an absolute middle finger to the hundreds of police officers who defended their cities and towns during the Black Lives Matter riots.

It is a spit in the eye of the family of retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn who, as U.S. News & World Report writes, was murdered “during a night of violence and looting sparked by racial injustice protests.”

Where are their medals? Where is Captain Dorn’s posthumous award?

Dorn rightly was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor Citizen Honors Award in 2021, nominated by Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri.

Other recipients of the Presidential Citizens Medal will be a host of election workers who reportedly did their part to preserve Biden’s 2020 presidential victory.

They join other famous recipients of the award such as Muhammad Ali, Bob Dole, Roberto Clemente, and Gary Sinise.

  • CORRECTION !! Ashli Babbitt was MURDERED - NOT "Killed" !
    Lying in Ambush and armed to kill an UNARMED Peaceful Protester constitutes nothing less than MURDER according to MY reading and understanding of the LAW. It is only under the current Mr EightyoneMillionHaHa President that "Justice" finally fled the room.
    God Forgive America for her heinous SINS ! There will be an ongoing price to pay for the sins of this present malignant "administration".

  • Biden is a real piece of dog feces! All of these awards should be shameful and make these idiots go to prison for being traitors to America. This was NOT Trump's Riot, it was Pelosi's Riot! She is responsible for all the deaths and injuries during Jan 6th and she needs to rot in prison. All of these government thugs need to also see prison time for their actions on Jan 6! The US Government should pay each of the victims of Jan 6 large sums of damages, and this includes ALL the Heroes they have illegally charged, prosecuted and wrongfully convicted of any crime. Full Pardons and large monetary settlements from the USA will be forthcoming. What a fiasco caused 100% by the radical left wing Liberal Democrats with NO responsibility of any Conservatives especially Donald Trump our True President.

  • Check out this website, Americans for justice on you tube with Mel Holly. Check out Bryan Smith. The FBI has arrested 900 people. Since Thanksgiving they have arrested another 15. Their goal is to arrest 3000. They are voracious to destroy lives of anyone, especially veterans, who were at the rally.

  • Biden is using his bully pulpet to spread lies and mal-information about the J6 event.
    Such a tragedy the American people will belive it as the legacy media pump it into their minds over and over again

  • They aren't giving the one to the officer who murdered a protester are they? Biden is such an exaggerating liar with a big assist from Pelosi and the partisan offices of the DOJ. 9-11? Pearl Harbor? It was more like Kent State, the only people in both instances killed were killed inadvertently or not by the authorities. Only Kent State got a genuine investigation Biden has turned this into propaganda. He is the worse President in US history and no kind of a man. His fate is written he will burn like straw and be trodden under the feet of the righteous.

  • Yeah, well Obama won a Nobel Prize for peace. Tell me again how significant the Nobel Award for peace is. Or, for that matter, the Presidential Citizens Award. The radical, liberal snow flakes are good at cultural destruction. Honestly, I think that an over-whelming majority of democrats are genetically related to the Roman's responsible for the fall of the Roman Empire.
