EXCLUSIVE: Jim Banks Demands White House Surveillance Logs To Vet Contested J6 Testimony

EXCLUSIVE: Jim Banks Demands White House Surveillance Logs To Vet Contested J6 Testimony

Indiana Republican Congressman Jim Banks is demanding the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) disclose White House surveillance records to lawmakers in their investigation of blockbuster claims by the Jan. 6 Committee’s latest star witness.

On Tuesday, a top aide to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Cassidy Hutchinson, offered sensational revelations in public testimony before the nine-member House panel depicting a president in rage as supporters ransacked congressional chambers. At one point, Hutchinson said President Donald Trump assaulted a Secret Service agent and attempted to hijack the presidential limousine with plans to drive himself to the Capitol.

“The president said something to the effect of, ‘I’m the f’ing president, take me up to the Capitol now,’” Hutchinson told lawmakers, citing a conversation with then-White House Deputy Chief of Staff Tony Ornato in the absence of a firsthand account.

Hours later, Hutchinson’s sources disputed the graphic events in question and told news outlets they were prepared to offer on-the-record denials under oath. Days after a centerpiece of Hutchinson’s uncorroborated testimony fell apart, more claims are beginning to fail the credibility test under closer scrutiny.

While Trump was intent on going to the Capitol, Hutchinson said, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone allegedly pressured aides to make sure the president remained far from the complex.

“We understand, Ms. Hutchinson, that you also spoke to Mr. Cipollone on the morning of the 6th, as you were about to go to the rally on the Ellipse,” said Committee Vice Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., who led Tuesday’s questioning. “Mr. Cipollone said something to you like, ‘make sure the movement to the Capitol does not happen.’ Is that correct?”

Hutchinson nodded.

That’s correct. I saw Mr. Cipollone right before I walked out onto West Exec that morning, and Mr. Cipollone said something to the effect of ‘please make sure we don’t go up to the Capitol, Cassidy. Keep in touch with me. We’re going to get charged with every crime imaginable if we make that movement happen.’

According to multiple sources with direct knowledge of White House staffing on Jan. 6, however, Cipollone was not at the White House that morning.

“Every Trump White House senior staff member knows that Cipollone was not at the White House that morning so that conversation could not have taken place,” one source who spoke on the condition of anonymity told The Federalist. “In Cipollone’s absence, Pat Philbin was filling in for Pat [Cipollone] that morning.”

“Besides the fact that Pat [Cipollone] wasn’t there,” they added, “He simply doesn’t speak like that.”

To independently investigate Hutchinson’s claims, Banks sent a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas requesting to “review White House gate logs, surveillance video, and all other records that could indicate which of these senior staff were present at the White House during the times referenced in Ms. Hutchinson’s attached testimony.”

The Indiana congressman spearheading House Republicans’ own probe into the Capitol riot after Speaker Nancy Pelosi stripped his appointment as ranking member of the Jan. 6 Committee gave Mayorkas until July 8 to comply.

Banks also sent a letter to Cipollone over the White House counsel’s whereabouts.

“Approximately, at what time did you enter the White House campus on January 6, 2021?” Banks asked. “Please provide my office with written responses to the following questions by July 9, 2022.”

Cipollone did not respond to The Federalist’s inquiries.

Biden Regime Admits On Camera: Ushering In ‘Liberal World Order’ Is More Important Than Affordable Gas

Biden Regime Admits On Camera: Ushering In ‘Liberal World Order’ Is More Important Than Affordable Gas

The Biden White House admitted on Thursday that record-high gas prices are part of a broader scheme to usher in the “liberal world order” at Americans’ expense.

On CNN, Biden’s director of the National Economic Council, Brian Deese, made clear that high gas prices are a part of the plan, as the administration promotes prohibitively expensive electric vehicles to struggling consumers.

“What do you say to those families who say, ‘Listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months if not years. It’s just not sustainable’?” the CNN host asked.

“What you heard from the president today was a clear articulation of the stakes,” Deese said. “This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm.”

Deese was referring to Joe Biden’s comments at the NATO summit in Madrid, after one reporter asked the president, “How long is it fair to expect American drivers and drivers around the world to pay that premium for this war?” in reference to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, which only spiked prices that were already elevated long before the war started.

“As long as it takes,” Biden said.

Deese then highlighted the administration’s efforts to “blunt” rising gas prices, including proposals for global price caps on Russian oil and a temporary gas tax holiday. Such policy maneuvers, however, are unlikely to make a difference without more oil and gas production in the United States, operations the White House has continued to shut down.

In May, Biden’s Department of the Interior killed plans for major oil and gas projects across the country from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico. When the administration announced the resumption of new oil and gas leases on federal lands to comply with a court order, the White House did so with a 50 percent spike in royalties while offering only 20 percent of the land initially nominated for exploration.

Other administration officials have left no room for doubt about their intentions, which has choked investment in the capital- and labor-intensive industry.

“President Biden remains absolutely committed to not moving forward with additional drilling on public lands,” White House climate adviser Gina McCarthy pledged on MSNBC.

Meanwhile, the president’s proposed break on federal gas taxes is a gimmick that will only offer more revenues for corporate sellers, who are able to pocket the savings as gas prices remain dictated by the open market and driven higher by the government-induced scarcity.

Deese also said the White House was “engaged with the industry” to increase oil and gas supplies and bring refinery capacity back online. But as the administration shutters down oil and gas operations, Biden also shut down plans for a major refinery in the U.S. Virgin Islands two months ago. Five refineries have closed down operations since 2020, with few prospects of reopening under an administration that has followed through on its pledge to regulate the industry out of business.

Joe Biden Instructive Note Card from Staff: YOU Enter the Room, ‘YOU Take YOUR Seat’

Joe Biden Instructive Note Card from Staff: YOU Enter the Room, ‘YOU Take YOUR Seat’

A recent photo of President Joe Biden’s note card is going viral online as it reveals a new level of detailed instructions provided to the leader of the free world.

“YOU enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to the participants,” the note card instructs Biden. “YOU take YOUR seat.”

The photo of the note card was taken by Drew Angerer of Getty Images during a meeting Biden conducted at the White House about the Federal-State Offshore Wind Implementation Partnership Thursday.

The instructions continue for Biden, telling him to give brief comments for two minutes before the press leaves.

The card tells Biden to ask a question of Liz Shuler, the president of the AFL-CIO, who appeared in the meeting virtually.

“YOU thank participants,” the card concludes. “YOU depart.”


White House Begins Engineering Narrative that Biden Policy U.S. Food Shortages are Fault of Vladimir Putin

White House Begins Engineering Narrative that Biden Policy U.S. Food Shortages are Fault of Vladimir Putin

The current White House Press Secretary, Karine Jeanne-Pierre, is hopelessly over her head and does not possess the intellectual or professional skills to articulate clear policy or answer questions.  Her professional inability is brutally obvious, yet political correctness dictates everyone is supposed to pretend not to notice.  In a weird way she is a perfect representation of the Biden White House.  Jeanne-Pierre is the Kamala Harris of Hank ‘tippy guam’ Johnsons.

That said, the White House is using former Pentagon spokesperson, and current National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications, John Kirby, as a crutch to support Jeanne-Pierre until enough time passes and the permanent switch can take place without backlash from the media and left-wing cultural police.   Narrative engineering is a tenuous business and relies upon media pretense to continue.

With the shortage of infant formula still visible as an example of Biden incompetence, today the White House began selling a proactive strategic communication message in advance of looming food shortages.  {Direct Rumble Link} Yes, you guess it, the advanced position of the Biden administration is that the future U.S. food shortages are Vladimir Putin’s fault.

Apparently, Russian President Vladimir Putin has the ability to drive up U.S. inflation, explode U.S. energy costs, increase gasoline prices, influence global agriculture, weaken U.S. oil refining capability, disrupt availability of diesel fuel, impede the transportation of U.S. goods, force municipal energy companies to raise prices, cancel airline flights, stop the manufacturing of infant formula and now block the production -and increase the cost- of food in North America.

It’s worth noting how John Kirby says NATO and the western allies can deliver thousands of tons of heavy weapons and arms into Ukraine from western Europe without issue; however, the western allies cannot get thousands of tons of grain and foodstuffs out of Ukraine.   I digress.  The propaganda around World War Reddit is remarkable.


If you follow the trajectory, perhaps the White House will now claim Vladimir Putin is the reason why we need to start eating bugs.


White House Blames Vladimir Putin for ‘Weaponizing Food’

White House Blames Vladimir Putin for ‘Weaponizing Food’

The White House blamed food shortages across the country on Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, accusing him of “weaponizing food.”

“President Putin is, no kidding, weaponizing food,” said White House National Security Council coordinator for strategic communications John Kirby on Tuesday. “Let’s just call it what it is, he’s weaponizing food.”

Kirby appeared at the White House daily briefing to discuss the president’s foreign policy agenda, including his efforts to get grain out of Ukraine and into global markets.

Thousand of tons of grain are currently stuck in Ukraine as Russia has blockaded the Black Sea port from Ukrainian producers.

He indicated that Biden would discuss “supply chain issues” and “food and fuel supply around the world” with international leaders at the G-7 summit next week.

“Multilateral leadership matters a lot because this isn’t affecting just the United States,” he said.

Kirby stated that Putin needed to be held accountable for invading Ukraine.

“He also believes and stands strongly on the principle that Mr. Putin needs to suffer consequences for this war of aggression,” he said.

The White House and President Joe Biden continue to blame Putin for the high costs of food and gas in the United States, referring to it as “Putin’s price hike.”

But only 11 percent of the public in a recent Rasmussen poll believe that Putin is responsible for high energy prices.

Fifty-two percent blame Biden’s own anti-oil energy policies for the high prices, as he articulated during his presidential campaign.


Aussie Black Hats exposed being tied up with Big Pharma and just about every corrupt done deal

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen’s nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no ‘government’ of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.


Joe Biden Botches LGBTQI+ Acronym as He Condemns ‘Ultra MAGA’ Agenda at Pride Celebration

Joe Biden Botches LGBTQI+ Acronym as He Condemns ‘Ultra MAGA’ Agenda at Pride Celebration

President Joe Biden struggled to correctly use the latest politically correct acronym to refer to homosexual and transgender Americans during a “Pride” event at the White House on Wednesday.

During his speech, Biden vowed to defend “LGBTQL” Americans before correcting himself.

“I,” he added, correcting himself, “Excuse me – ‘plus’ Americans.”

The president also misread the word “lesbian” as “liberation” when he was reading the title of an executive order he signed at the event.

Biden’s executive order instructs the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Education to create new sample policies for states to enact in order to be compliant with “LGBTQI+” demands.

The order also requires HHS, as well as the departments of Treasury and State, to find ways to restrict “conversion therapy” for gay and transgender individuals.

Biden said his order would use the “full force of the federal government” to ban “inhuman” practices like “conversion therapy.”

The president criticized Republicans in states like Florida, Texas, and Alabama for passing legislation prohibiting public school teachers from encouraging children to have conversations about gender and sexuality.

“I don’t have to tell you about the ultra-MAGA agenda attacking families and our freedoms,” Biden said, mocking Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis for “going after Mickey Mouse for God’s sake.”

“These attacks are real and consequential for real families,” Joe Biden continued.

Biden blamed Republicans for a group of “White Supremacists” who gathered in Idaho to riot at Pride parade.

“Thirty-one White Supremacists stopped just before they reached the Pride celebration, where apparently planned to unleash violence on people gathering peacefully,” he said.

The president boasted that his administration was the most “pro-equality” administration, crediting his openly gay Transportation Secretary for leading the way.

“Pride is back at the White House,” he said celebrating his efforts to get a “record number of out and proud appointees at every single level of our government.”


Joe Biden Admits to Elite Donors: ‘We’re Gonna Live with This Inflation for a While’

President Joe Biden shifted his narrative on inflation at a California fundraiser Friday night, despite his administration stressing for months that inflation was only temporary.

“We’re gonna live with this inflation for a while,” Biden said at the event. “It’s gonna come down gradually, but we’re going to live with it for a while.”

The Beverly Hills fundraiser with wealthy Democrat donors was hosted by billionaire Haim Saban, a media mogul.

That was a slightly different message from the more positive one he issued to Americans while visiting the Port of Los Angeles earlier Friday afternoon.

“Inflation outside of energy and food, what the economists call core inflation, moderated the last two months,” Biden said. “Not enough, but it moderated. It’s come down, and we need it to come down much more quickly.”

According to the latest consumer price index numbers for May, month-to-month core inflation was at 0.6 percent, the same percentage it was in April. Year-to-year core inflation was up 6 percent in May compared to a year ago, down from 6.5 percent in March.

The president has failed to offer any new solutions to solve inflation, despite calling it his “top economic priority.”

During his speech, Biden blamed oil companies for high gas prices and shipping companies for high shipping prices.

He also blamed all of the food and gas hikes on Russian President Vladimir Putin, even though prices were already rising before the invasion of Ukraine.

“I understand Americans are anxious, and they’re anxious for good reason,” Biden said, adding, “We have never seen anything like Putin’s tax on both food and gas.”
