Jason Goodman at CrowdSourcetheTruth was in D.C. on January 6, 2021 and inadvertently filmed Ray Epps, who is widely suspected of being an FBI informant. Jason’s new video material and photos appear below. Why is Epps believed to be an FBI informant? Epps appeared on video inciting Trump supporters to storm the Capitol and assaulting a police officer, yet he was never arrested and charged. Quite a contrast with more than a hundred Trump supporters who were arrested for merely walking into the Capitol. For readers outside the United States, I want to ensure you understand the expression, “If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it is a duck!” The “duck” with respect to Ray Epps strongly suggests that he was collaborating with the FBI or acting at their direction.
Here are some key articles that first appeared on The Gateway Pundit. If you read these you will be up to speed.
So here is the new video evidence courtesy of Crowd Source the Truth. At the 12 second mark you can see a man in the background just to the left of the man standing by a bicycle. The man is making some unusual gestures with his hands and then, enter stage left, you will see Ray Epps suddenly emerge and walk past the man who was gesturing. It appears that the man did a “brush pass” with Ray Epps. It is tough to tell. It is possible they had no contact beyond walking past each other.
With the Republicans taking control of the House of Representatives, there is enormous pressure from the Republican side to expose how the FBI infiltrated the crowd on January 6, 2021 and facilitated what is now described as the January 6th Insurrection. I believe evidence will show that the FBI played a major role in instigating the insurrection and did so by using assets like Ray Epps.
You can watch Jason’s video in its entirety here:
When you compare the behavior of the average Trump supporter interviewed by Jason over the course of two hours with Ray Epps various video appearances that day, there is a distinct difference. Although Epps is costumed as a Trump supporter, he certainly does not appear to act like one.
The Australian version is: Looks like shit. Smells like shit. Tastes like shit……….
Glad I didn’t step in it.

Never heard it .
Charlie is from Canberra , our very small take on DC.
ie full of overpaid public servants and expensive real estate.
Fake news. Sad.
Who the hell would taste shit?
No, no, no that’s just Canberra which is full of shite because, wait for it, it’s full of politicians and bureaucrats.
The South African version is similar, but does not include the taste part…….. 🙂
Eric Newhill says
Epps, the FBI and the “committee” got some splainin’ to do.
Hope you have an enjoyable Thanksgiving, Larry. And thank you for this blog.
Larry Johnson says
Thank you Eric. Glad you are part of this community.
The psyops / IO is so wide and deep, I doubt anything positive will happen.
James Cook says
Indeed there are an enormous number of moving parts in the deceit machine (lie factory).
Many are there just to confuse astute observers while others have more important roles. The size and sound of objects can be used to advantage to distract observers from other discrete, but more important parts. All use crowd camouflage and small bits and pieces of a plan rarely expose the bigger operation and again are useful as distraction.
Useful idiots versus important assets……. distraction is a magicians miracle and the lie factories grease.
I suspect Larry knows more than this ‘flash-bang reminder piece’ exposes/distracts.

Well, with you around, it won’t, will it?
There’s an old piece of Christian apologetics:
Joe dies and goes to heaven. The minute he sees God, he starts ranting: “You should be ashamed of yourself. There’s poverty everywhere, sickness, needless wars, oligarchs hogging everything, Why don’t you do something”.
God replies, “I did. I created you.”
Enjoy your articles & videos on Rumble. Happy Thanksgiving!

Regardless of whether you like Trump or not, he was the people’s candidate and they can’t aow that to stand.
Thank you Larry for all you do and happy Thanksgiving and God Bless.
Populism is the threat…
Remind me, which elected representative of the people in Congress declared the real problem isn’t Trump, but his supporters? Most of the folks I’ve met that support Trump are populists…
To Larry, you and other contributors to the blog — Happy Thanksgiving.

“the FBI played a major role in instigating the insurrection”
There was no insurrection, just a constitutionally guaranteed protest — plus at least one murder and a number of beatings by deep state thugs.
Even our side uses the Enemies Syntax.
There’s your clue

Happy Thanksgiving, Larry.
And thanks for what you do to keep the embers of the Spirit of 1776 glowing despite the spread of the sickening fumes and stench of the DC swamp.

Nothing like rolling over and giving up….
No one is giving up over here.
There is no giving up. If this republic is dead, we work towards getting a 2nd American Republic. Nothing lasts forever, and renewal is part of the civilizational cycle.

Very salient points once again , Larry.
However, in a minor point , instead of saying of readers outside of the US you could have said outside the English speaking world as the expression is quite well known.
I think ( and as our elementary school teacher used to say : no, you don’t ) it comes from the 18 C and a French gent who invented a duck that is what we might today call a robot.
Back to your main point, it is very worrying , especially given the lustre of your ancestors .
Hi from a former convict settlement.
If you have government agencies like FBI, CIA, police, the DOJ all partisan, beholden, and propping up a single party, you are only one step away from a dictatorship! All that is missing is the military declaring themselves serving only the Democrats.
Scarfell UK says
Never did understand how the “insurrectionists” were filmed calmly walking through the central hall sticking between the visitor guide ropes; surely someone just let them in?
That kind of ‘insurrection’ can only be staged when you have control of all the levers of power, the treatment of the ‘perpetrators’ who seemed about as dangerous as exicted tourists indicates the level of contempt those with authority have for the system. I can only envision this going two ways, either there’s a civil war between different factions of enforcement leading to a period of martial law where either things are restored to something like people imagine things to actually be, or the empowered elite wins and a period of purges ensue until a psychopathic megalomaniac emerges and in turn purges every source of resistance, real or imagined. Aristotle had much to say about these transitions, https://www.crf-usa.org/bill-of-rights-in-action/bria-26-1-plato-and-aristotle-on-tyranny-and-the-rule-of-law.html For those near the peak of your [USA] power pyramid ‘do what that wilt shall be the whole of the law’ is already true and the purges may have already begun.

I found this a very informative take on Jan6 events
If permitted (?) and accessible, pse promulgate IF it is of use to your clients – cannot speak for US opinion on Epoch
The three letter mobs have had plenty of practice destabilising countries and governments across the World. Hence, have to say I am not surprised they use their honed-to-perfection tactics against their own population.
Meanwhile, I did however follow the pointer to gateway pundit.
And fell at the first hurdle. Headline:-
”EXCLUSIVE: Down Ballot AZ GOP US House Races Received Thousands More Votes Than AZ Races for Gov, SoS, AG and US Senate – IMPOSSIBLE”
AZ – azimuth; Races – something horses?; Sos -save our souls; Ag – silver . . . yes impossible!
Just a gentle reminder, not all of us understand the abbreviations used on that site and many obscure abbreviations used on this one too. The machine translator couldn’t cope either!
As the joke goes: why did the coup d’état fail? There is no US Embassy in Washington DC
Biswapriya Purkayastha says
It seems to me that you’re electoral system is a deliberate circus to keep your population divided, distracted, and demented. It certainly doesn’t seem to make any difference who’s in power where real issues are concerned as far as I can see.
Indeed, if it were not for the relentless attacks on Trump how would we know he is a conservative? He did nothing but perpetuate the agenda. Likewise with Biden, were it not for Fox News and other right wing outfits how would we know that that war monger was a liberal. There is no Republican or Democrat agenda, there is only the agenda, and the only debate is over how rapidly that agenda can be implemented.
Epps was a leading Oath Keeper here in Arizona. The whole organization was an intelligence operation to expose “subversives” when it was founded under the Obama’s administration. From the beginning it was infiltrated by intelligence assets/informants. IMO. That is how a statist government finds out who are opposed to its policies, by creating the opposition. The main founder, who is now in jail, was just a dupe. Orwell wrote about such operations in his book 1984. Although, I don’t need to explain any of this to Larry or his readers. It is prima facie….
“The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” – V. Lenin
They set up a fake anti-Bolshevik group to do the same thing way back when –
Thanks for all the insight and different points of view this blog gives us average people around the globe. Here it is American Thanksgiving and I almost forgot. Don’t have enough time to thaw out a turkey but will dust off my beloved Cowboys jersey. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and go Cowboys

Sadly a “real” insurrection is the only one solution for Americans. But just as sadly that will never happen because the country has been dumbed down and dividend. American and the western societies are in for a rough ride, either a complete economic collapse or a military/ nuclear exchange with the emerging powers, Russia/ China. To say you need to stay and fight are stupid. Best thing to do is move yourself from the country. It’s not salvageable.
OK move – but where to?
Go to New Zealand, spend a month there and you will go back to the USA thinking things aren’t so bad after all.
Happy Thanksgiving, Larry, you do OUTSTANDING work that is much needed. God bless!
Curt Nichols says
This is not new. Back in the 60’s there was a running joke. If the Weathermen, or the Black Panthers had a meeting? And there were 6 people present? 5 of them were FBI. The old Resistance formula was 3-man cells. With only one person knowing a way to contact another cell, etc. That is dead. With the information 1984 state present in every facet of our life, only lone wolf tactics will work. Not to mention the torture tactics perfected by the US in Abu Ghraib prison. And being kept alive for the J6 political prisoners. And that is what the Overlords fear. A man that keeps his mouth shut. Does not have a Manifesto. That consciously avoids family and connections so that they cannot be used against him and be punished later. And just makes a decision that his purpose is worth his life. It’s not for me anymore. I fought for this country once. Never again. Because it never was what I thought it was. All governments are evil. Ours is no exception. And if you think your “side” is the good guys? You have another stage or two of realization to come. And one thing the Viva la Revolution crowd never remembers? The first ones up against the wall after the “Victory” are the true believers. I have a few blessed years left with my Belgian Malinois Stella. When I lose her, I am de-assing this country. Going somewhere with a beach, and no internet. And going to send a lot of 25- to 30-year-old young women to hair and nail college on my military retirement and disability pay. It’s not much of a plan. But it’s what I got left.
A very sober comment. Revolutions came up because people had something to complain. And the complaint is inequality. Some being super rich, some having privileges.
The “good” idea of the USA is to claim that this inequality is because some people deserve it, as they were more cunning, and that everyone had a chance in his life. This is of course nonsense.
Anyway: do you know the film Life stinks? It shows the dilemma: Though the American dream is nonsense, the USA clings to it.
Mark Gisleson says
Never commented here before. Long time Democratic party activist and campaign staff, now politically homeless. Saw the pictures and videos of Epps in real time, gobsmacked at how the 1/6 Committee inverted all the evidence and gaslighted the nation with the full approval of the major news media.
Thank you for this reminder. Any outcome at this point that does not result in several top Democrats and FBI officials going to prison will be unsatisfactory. I have no desire to return to the Republican party (the party of my birth) absent them kicking all the Reagan Democrat racists out of the GOP. Please investigate, arrest and convict the criminals running the Democrat party as I would like to return to it some day.
Or you could kick the racists out of the Republican party to make it a majority party again. (churched ADOS would flock to the GOP banner if the party ever stopped spitting on them)
P.S. I was working a congressional race in Wisconsin in 2016. You still don’t know the half of all the ways Hillary kneecapped fellow Democrats and Democratic candidates to shackle the party to her Deep State platform. Wisconsin should be a solid D state but as such the state party implodes when the national party is run by frauds and bag men who sabotage local efforts with absurd national agendas.
Watch January 6, Kiev uprising in 2014 and blm. Very similar, stars as regular protest, then becomes violent and a few people die later on. Have you also seen uprising in Iran? Dirty CIA hands everywhere.
Paulo Guerra says
For those who still see in America some kind of neoliberal democracy. Howls of outrage after New York Times confirms SBF will speak alongside Zelenskyy, Yellen, etc.
Ray Epp’s actions were every bit as egregious as those of people who have been denied bail and are awaiting trial. How to explain the fact that he has not been arrested other than he is a government informant/provocateur? Hopefully the House Republicans will push for answers but I am not holding my breath.
John Guthrie says
Larry, Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for all you do in seeking out the truth. Your work is invaluable. Looking at the video it looks to me like the man giving a hand signal and the man on the bike had some recognition of each other.
Bob In Portland says
Yup. Any time there’s a new “radical” group examine closely. When Antifa was streetfighting with the Proud Boys you can bet that there were people on both sides who are going to be getting federal pensions.
That doesn’t mean that there weren’t people who believe in their political beliefs and are willing to demonstrate for them, but the guy too quick to throw the brick, or the guy who wants to talk you into blowing up a federal building or an ROTC office, will very often walk away while you’re sitting handcuffed in the back of a police car.
life experience tells me you are 100% correct, sir:
” When Antifa was streetfighting with the Proud Boys you can bet that there were people on both sides who are going to be getting federal pensions”
and often the angriest person who encourages others to put their own well-being at risk. There is no “good side” here, only good people being pitted against one another by those pulling the strings high above us.
Carlton Meyer says
Watch Senator Cruz grill the FBI about Ray Epps. Only 3-mins long and ignored by our corporate media.
Mr. Epps’ version as told to NYT does not agree:
Larry Johnson says
The videos and his own words recorded that day refute the NY Times version.
Ken B says
Get this Ray Epps character to testify under oath in house committee that Republican congressmen will supposedly be organizing in near future.

Juan Valdez says
Certainly, none of this is new.
I don’t know why anyone would be shocked to find a government agent provocateur (or dozens) in situations like this (or the “BLM” riots). As another poster mentioned this happened back in the 1960s with the antiwar movement. It also was the purpose of Operation Gladio in Europe post WWII:
“Operation Gladio formed part of the ‘Strategy of Tension’, which was a theory that Western governments during the Cold war used tactics that aimed to divide, manipulate, and control public opinion using fear, propaganda, disinformation, psychological warfare, agents provocateurs, and false flag terrorist actions in order to achieve their strategic aims.”
“Governments regard their own citizens as their main enemy, and they have to protect themselves. That’s why you have state secret laws. Citizens are not supposed to know what their government is doing to them.”
I’m not sure there is an answer for this. We all want America to live up to its ideals but, hey, we’re just honest citizens who love our country and don’t wake up every morning lusting for endless wealth and the power of life and death over others. Unfortunately, those are the people running the show – mass murdering psychopaths and monumental thieves all.
Revolution? Yeah, sure, uh huh. Any kind of mass movement is quickly crushed by the power structure. Besides, as Kafka said:
“Every revolution evaporates and leaves behind only the slime of a new bureaucracy.”
So what are we to do?
I wish I knew.
All we can do in this life is strive to be good and decent and kind. But I think the reality is we’re up against the Devil himself.
The late Norman Mailer wrote this prior to our invasion of Iraq back in 2003:
“America is going to become a mega-banana republic where the army will have more and more importance in Americans’ lives. It will be an ever greater and greater overlay on the American system. And before it is all over, democracy, noble and delicate as it is, may give way. My long experience with human nature – I’m 80 years old now – suggests that it is possible that fascism, not democracy, is the natural state.
Indeed, democracy is the special condition – a condition we will be called upon to defend in the coming years. That will be enormously difficult because the combination of the corporation, the military and the complete investiture of the flag with mass spectator sports has set up a pre-fascistic atmosphere in America already.”
Hug your kids. Love the good things that we have. Happy Thanksgiving all.
Paulo Guerra says
Which Democracy? For years, neoliberalism and completely unregulated financial power have corrupted all democratic powers in the US. Executive, legislative and judicial. Elections no longer make any difference in the US today! And even for someone like me who hates mobs, hysteria and popular justice characteristic of power in the street contrary to any Democracy how does anyone justify that the guy, CEO of FTX, responsible for the biggest financial scandal of cryptocurrency that stole millions of customers continues to live as if nothing is happening had passed? Whether judged or not! Societies are also governed by moral standards!
Even after named bankruptcy manager John J. Ray, who also oversaw the liquidation of Enron Corp. come to say that the Enron scandal was a joke in terms of criminal negligence compared to the FTX scandal? The fact that the main protagonist of the FTX continues to participate as a speaker in Summits with the Secretary of State for the US Treasury and Zelensky configures not only the corruption of all democratic powers and the loss of any moral standard in the financial sector that we had already verified in the 2008 crash but the loss of any standard of morale across all US powers. Formal or informal. Elected or not elected! That is, in the US as a nation! Good Thanksgiving Day to everyone in the US!
the blame-e says
Some say this country died on January 6TH. I don’t know. Maybe the country has been drying several deaths, so far. What I do know is the United States Capitol is the “People’s House.”
The US Capitol Building does not belong to these entrenched professional politicians, like Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, AOC, Dianne Feinstein, or this Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, who somehow keep getting re-elected over and over.
These people are guests in the People’s House. And yet the Americans who visited their house on January 6TH are in jail. Something is really fucked up.
Ray Epps, the FBI, and those like him are pond scum and traitors to their country.
Paulo Guerra says
Nice talk with George, Larry!
Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for all!

Conveniently enough, on January 4th, 2021 the leader of the Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio, was arrested on charges of destroying a “Black Lives Matter” banner. Even more conveniently, he had been a FBI informant for many years.
Nothing to see here, just move along.
Merrick Garland is dog excrement.
Barbara Boyd says
Hey Larry: Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for all that you do. The role you are now playing and the calm, experienced analysis you are proving is critical to our nation’s present survival. You wrote a piece awhile back about walking in the footsteps of our founders. You are now doing so. More people need not only to do that but to do so with a competent understanding of who our founders were. Again, thank you.
Larry Johnson says
I really appreciate the complement. We’re getting a taste of what the founders lived through.

An unfortunate truth…
USG hybrid-warfare capabilities long deployed against other nations and peoples are now focused on US citizens. The USG may not be able to engage a peer-state competitor militarily, but it has beau coup population control / insurgency capabilities as well as over one hundred years of experience. And no moral compass.
How does one attack the legitimacy of such a government?
Art Ventura says
I think the Dem-Socialist are always two steps ahead of Trump. No matter what he does they turn it into a dramatic event and Trump has to waste his time defended it. No doubt the Dems planed the event to happen the way it did and make Trump look like the bad guy. Then the mainstream media hyped it up and went with the narrative. I remember when no body was getting arrested for anything consequential and the Dems were getting pissed off. Finally someone in the Whitehouse came up with the phrase “Insurrection” and the rest is history. What ever happened to that “Bomber” or better known as the back-up plan.
The actual Duck saying is if looks like a duck,quacks like a duck and leaves Duck shit all over the place it’s a Duck. As a pedant It bothers me when people misquote such sayings, one of the most often mangled is the pudding one. Here’s how it actually goes. The proof OF the pudding is in the eating, NOT the proof is in the pudding. That’s all I’ve got.
