On this episode of “The Federalist Radio Hour,” Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss how the corporate media’s lie that U.S. Park Police cleared “peaceful protesters” at Lafayette Square last summer so then-President Donald Trump could take a photo in front of St. John’s Church was weaponized by the left to push an agenda.

    Interesting point on the police presence at Jan. 6.  I was at the first stop the steal rally in December 2020.  Police were everywhere.  Up until about 11:00 am there were more police than ralliers.  At one point, a phalanx of bicycle cops, at least a dozen, rode in formation through the crowd, and be the crowd cheered them!   About a dozen Antifa were present at one street corner, but completely inactive. Apparently Antifa watched and learned and planned for their actions on Jan. 6, and seemingly colluded with the powers that be, assuring that very few cops would be around.

    Terrific podcast!

    Aside from the egregious Liz Cheney (may she be voted out next year), I’d be interested to know who are the Republican suckers who fall for false media narratives again and again.

    A healthy dose of shame might make them hesitate before they jump aboard the next media bandwagon.

    Loved hearing Molly as usual. Indeed, it is terrible that these narratives are taken as gospel by Republicans, conservatives, whoever. I’ve been trying to figure out what has caused the reversal on the Wuhan virus – something or someone that cannot be kept hidden?

    Some scientists admit they kept their doubts to themselves until now so that they didn’t get Trump cooties on them.  

    This meant that something coming out was only a matter of time, once Biden had been carried over the finish line.
