I will say her name: Ashli Babbitt. Killed by Capitol Police on January 6

The propagandists in the Democrat Party and their willing accomplices in the media continue to insult us with their details of the so-called “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. 

Their quick summary always states something like, “during the insurrection a woman was shot and killed inside the Capitol.”

Generally they avoid mentioning her name and who shot her.

Their hope is that by eliminating as many details as possible, and repeating their mini-version of the story over and over and over, the public at large will believe the shooter was a wild-eyed Trump supporter who crashed the Capitol and the victim was a Congressional staffer or perhaps even a Capitol police officer.

And that’s exactly what most in the public now think. 

Actually, as those read this website know, the deceased woman’s name is Ashli Babbitt. She was from Southern California. Ashli was 36 years old. There was a memorial held for her this Saturday. Those closest to Ashli described her as a loving, passionate, patriotic woman.

When the media’s talking heads do reveal Ashli’s identity they make her out to be a conspiracy kook.

Hardly the case.

According to a GoFundMe account set up to fund her memorial:

Ashli’s love for America started early. She joined the United States Air Force in 2003 at age 18 and served for the next 14 years. During that time, Ashli deployed four times.  It was during one of those deployments she was injured during an attack. Throughout her challenges, she never lost her unwavering patriotism and love for her country. After active duty, Ashli joined the National Guard and went back to school to earn a degree in business. She used that knowledge to run her own company along with her husband, Aaron.

She was also a proud supporter of President Trump. That’s why she was in Washington D.C. on January 6.

What do we know about the person who killed Ashli Babbitt?

Only that he or she is a Capitol Police officer. We’re told a preliminary investigation did not find enough evidence to criminally charge the officer.

Unlike other police killings in the United States, this officer’s identity is being withheld. Unlike other recent police killings, the victim’s name is not continually being repeated by talking heads and activists screaming, SAY HER NAME.

Ashli’s parents certainly raised a wonderful daughter. It sounds as if all of our lives would have benefited from knowing Ashli.

Let’s keep her family and friends in prayer.

    Thanks, James.
    Ashli was a patriot and Trump remains my President as well.
    I’m not buying this charade and neither are millions of others.

    Sorry, but her death was one for the Darwin awards . This woman was incredibly stupid and put herself in harm’s way . She didn’t have to join that crazed team of deranged, degenerate , racist, xenophobic , Neanderthal rioters who were Trump’s useful idiots .
    I saw the video . She jumped up trying to get a better look through the high windows and was shot . She has no one to blame but herself . That riot on January 6 was one of the most shameful and disgraceful days in the history of the USA .
    And who incited it ? Donald Trump. Who worst, most corrupt, incompetent, abysmally stupid , ruthless, power-hungry , clueless, inept , self-serving , mendacious , cruel, callous, unthinking , divisive, racist, misogynistic, xenophobic , dangerous and destructive president in US history . His presidency was an unmitigated disaster .

      Your comments, Robert, illustrate the great divide, between that of truth and illusion, which I attempt to describe in several of my recent posts. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read those and get back to me.

      I also hope people are more kind to you (than you have been to Ashli) upon your date with the one who says, “I am the way, truth, and life. No man comes to the [Eternal] Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

      With great sincerity and best regards,

    Hi Brian. Great to see you on WND. Really appreciate you. Hope you are well. I noticed KSFO went leftist. Sad. Their emails are very pro-globalists and anti-Trump. 28 Feb 2020, was last day I listened to AM radio – when your brother and Katie said goodbye. Best wishes to you.

      Thanks for the comments, Brian.
      Yeah, the last time I listened to KSFO was the last time I was on the air.
      Now that Rush has passed (and Savage let go), the station is a mess.
      Very Best Regards, and God Have Mercy on America.
