60 Minutes to Mislead the Public by Painting Ray Epps as a Victim


by Mark Schwendau

Today, this Sunday evening, the “60 Minutes” news magazine show is to air an episode called “Who is Ray Epps?” where they will attempt to portray him as a victim of the January 6th protest turned riot at the Capitol.  This move leaves many real journalists scratching their heads and asking, “Why?”

What 60 Minutes will tell you is Epps is a former Marine, Oath Keeper, and supposed Trump supporter. They will not address and explain how he was caught on video as a provocateur and has avoided prosecution. In contrast, others remained in the Washington, D.C. jail living in deplorable conditions and being denied their fundamental human rights.

The story will prove to be propaganda and far less interesting than the motivation behind its production and airing. Tucker Carlson painted Epps in a new light on Monday, March 6, when a clip from the 44,000 hours of the video aired on his show. Epps actively engaged in the riot pushing a sign and/or police barricade into police lines. This destroyed the socialist Democrats’ narrative that he was a simple, peaceful protester only using the power of his words protected by his First Amendment right to free speech.

Others argue it is against the law to yell “Fire!” in a darkened movie theater when there is no fire, just as it is illegal to cry, “We need to go into the Capitol!”, during a peaceful protest.

Many believe Epps was a paid Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) employee or a nefarious actor of some three-letter government agency. Officials have stonewalled any efforts to root out Epps’ role in the January 6 riot or his motivation. Those who have previously tracked him down near his home in Arizona have been accused of stalking or harassing him.

The other interesting aspect of what 60 Minutes is about to do is to throw shade at the alternative online news source Revolver. Revolver did some outstanding REAL NEWS pieces dating back to October of 2021, with their first one titled Meet Ray Epps: The Fed-Protected Provocateur Who Appears to Have Led the Very First 1/6 Attack on the US Capitol.

The three articles I reviewed of that publication were all chock-full of facts and documentation, unlike the fluff pieces 60 Minutes is so famous for another one most likely to air on Ray Epps this evening.

This scenario so outraged the writer of the Revolver article to post to Twitter:


The Biden bias brigade needs to be stopped dead in its tracks, as it is dangerous to our national security. From my vantage point is Nazi-style propaganda, if not simple misinformation of today’s age.

I would respectfully suggest that the Bud Light Boycott worked out so well that perhaps it is time we target television broadcasts like this one that’s about to go down using the same tactic. I notice one of the commercial sponsors is Pfizer which should make the idea of such a boycott very easy.

Everything points to Ray Epps being a former Marine who went to work under cover for the CIA and/or the FBI. He was used to infiltrate the Oath Keepers, then as a Shit Stirrer for 6 January 2021. As a Motorboat in a Cesspool, it is clear he was instigating a Riot at the Capitol.

If things get too hot Epps will have an accident. The Government will never let him tell the truth but it is also obvious he is a true Deep State Cult Believer.

CBS hasn’t had credibility since Dan Rather was anchorman

Everytime a leftist ( such as Raskin ) or a leftist Media ( such as the New York Times or CBS ) defends Ray Epps, they make it even more obvious that Ray Epps is not a Trump supporter, but is part of their team; the anti-Trump leftist team.

The left and their Media have spent over 2 years demonizing Trump supporters who protested the 2020 election certification, hundreds of them are in priison and are being treated the same way Muslim terrorists were treated at Gitmo…but Ray Epps is getting the exact opposite treatment from the left and their media.

It is super obvious Ray Epps is a leftist, and almost certainly hired to incite violence at the jan 6 protests, and that is why the left is bending over back wards to defend him; hhe is one of them, he is NOT a trump supporter.

If Raskin or the Media cared about how mistreated Trump supporters are, they would deploy as much time and energy defending those held in prison right now.

The more the left defends Ray Epps the more they confirm he is one of them.

60 minutes is no longer capable of balanced factual journalism. Ray Epps is an FBI stooge. 60 minutes and CBS are part of the problem of democrat manipulated media.
