Let's talk about Ray Epps
Let’s start with what we know. Ray Epps was caught on camera encouraging everyone to raid the capital on the night of January 5th (encouraging them to do it on the 6th) . Nearly everyone nearby was rejecting his pleas.
Here he is again.
In the video you can see him standing next to known and convicted Antifa leader John Sullivan.
And a picture of Sullivan after his arrest, side by side with his selfie when he dressed up prior to arriving on Jan 6th.
Anyway, back to Ray Epps. How do we know his name is Ray Epps? From an article done by the Arizona Republic from January 11th.
Ray Epps told the Arizona Republic in that telephone interview that he had been advised by an attorney not to speak about it.
Alright, fine. His name is Ray Epps. But we can't possibly know if he is a Fed. Right?
Yeah but that could be anyone named Ray Epps.
Alright, let's go a little deeper. If we use the name from the Arizona Republic article as well as it describing him as a 'Queen Creek man', we can get some results on Queen Creek, Arizona with the name Ray Epps. It appears that Ray Epps is the owner of 'Rocking R Farms' in Queen Creek and the Knotty Barn, a wedding and event venue in the East Valley. The Rocking R Farms website has scrubbed Ray's name from its site but the Knotty Barn website still has his name in the 'Our Story' section of the site. Or you can go to sites like DNB and check their business directory where James Ray Epps is listed as Key Principal of Rocking R Farms.
Ok, fine. His name is Ray Epps. But just because a man named Ray Epps attended the FBI Academy doesn't mean it's this Ray Epps.
Well, we have 2 videos of him at the Capitol inciting the crowd. We have an article from the Arizona Republic naming him, saying where he is from, and showing a picture of him at the Capitol. Surely if I can find all of that information the FBI, who is tracking down and jailing people identified to have been at the Capitol on Jan. 6th knows who he is and has already jailed him, right?
Well, that's possible. So let's check the DoJ website and do a search on Capitol Breach Cases. Hmmm. Nothing comes up under Epps, Ray Epps, or James Ray Epps. Now with all these pictures and videos, why hasn't the FBI tracked this guy down and charged him? I mean, there's video evidence of this guy standing next to an Antifa provocateur who was arrested and charged in his role at the Capitol and was knowingly paid $35,000 by CNN to storm the capitol and film it.
So charges filed against John Sullivan who was caught on video encouraging people to raid the Capitol and 'burn it down' but no charges against Ray Epps, who was standing next to John Sullivan and encouraging people to raid the Capitol?
Maybe we can find some more about Ray Epps. Let's check out his Facebook. Wait...what's this? This guy has been running Ops at the capital since at least September 2012???!?!?! (non-ops pictures for person identification).
Apparently, he is an Oathkeepers chapter President. We know for a fact that Oathkeepers is compromised. Just the other day, former Green Beret Jeremy Brown published videos of FBI and DHS coming to his home to recruit him to spy on Oathkeepers.
Revolver has done a great piece on FBI/CIA involvement with the three primary militia groups (Oathkeepers, Proud Boys, Three Percenters).
Make of this what you will. As for me, outright denying anything fishy surrounding Jan. 6th would be foolish. Too many questions, not enough answers. Still far too little video released for my liking. This is the seat of our government and you're telling me there is no video surveillance of anything? Pull my other leg, it plays Jingle Bells.
