(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) The deep state and corporate media’s efforts to silence any inquiry into the role Ray Epps may have played in a “fedsurrection” on Jan. 6, 2021 have been ramped up, according to a recent report from Revolver News.
First came the New York Times‘ clumsy “puff piece” on the unindicted Epps, the only man who can be seen on video encouraging Trump supporters to “go into the Capitol” on Jan. 5 and 6.
Taking a page from the old Hillary Clinton textbook, the Times suggested that Epps has been the victim of “a vast right-wing conspiracy,” and lent a sympathetic ear to his complaints that “all of this, it’s just been hell.”
After Revolver’s Darren Beattie offered a thorough debunking of the Times‘ article, however, the Epps drama entered its next phase with the viral appearance on Twitter of unsourced claims about Epps that Beattie believes are part of a “disinfo campaign” designed to “muddy the waters” surrounding Epps’ role.
“It looks like the next phase in the effort to silence inconvenient discussion about Ray Epps is to flood the zone with false stories regarding Epps,” Beattie wrote. “[The aim is to] use those stories to silence the genuine, legitimate, and critical questions regarding Epps that are making the powers that be sweat big league.”
The first example of the possible “black influence op” involved a July 21 tweet from an unknown and unverified Twitter account that claimed Epps had spoken with Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi more than 10 times in advance of the J6 riots.
“Freedom of Information Act requests show a dozen phone calls between the cell phone of Ray Epps and the office of Speaker Pelosi in the week before #January6th,” Retro Tech Noir wrote.
Enticing but there is zero evidence for this claim
Let’s not muddy the waters with bullshit https://t.co/48cWC7XqPV

“Take a gander,” Kinzinger tweeted in response to Retro Tech Noir’s claim. “Absolutely false, literally made up, yet tens of thousands of RT’s, This is what democracy is up against.”
Beattie also highlighted another apparent piece of fed disinformation in which Epps’ wife is alleged to be the employee of the parent company of Dominion Voting Systems, whose voting machines are alleged to have been vulnerable to fraud during the 2020 election.
Again, need to be careful about spreading bullshit regarding Epps.
Just like the nonsense story that FOIA requests reveal calls from Epps to Pelosi, there is zero evidence that Dominion Enterprises has anything to do with Dominion Voting Systems https://t.co/tF2SuQr2pZ
