“What is truth?” Pilate asked. And having said this, he went out again to the Jews and told them, “I find no basis for a charge against Him. But it is your custom that I release to you one prisoner at the Passover. So then, do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?” “Not this man,” they shouted, “but Barabbas!” (John 18:38-40)
In the accepted Christian narrative, Jesus is brought before the Roman governor Pontius Pilate, who finds nothing to charge Jesus with. But the crowd demands that the customary prisoner release during the Passover be the thief (or insurrectionist, depending on the translation) Barabbas rather than Jesus, who has not harmed anyone but merely challenged the authority of the Jewish leadership. In the end, Pilate relents and Jesus is sentenced to crucifixion.
The outcome of Jesus’ brief rendezvous with Barabbas is a common theme in history, where peaceful political or social rejection of authority is often considered more dangerous to the elites than common criminal activity, violent or not. Orwell noted this in his novel 1984, where the main protagonist Winston Smith is throw in jail and quickly sees how the common criminals are treated with more respect by the guards than are the “party prisoners”.
Such is the case in many areas of the United States currently. District attorneys in large “blue” cities such as Alvin Bragg in New York City and George Gascon in Los Angeles are dispensing with bail requirements or not even charging many crimes, including trespassing, resisting arrest, drug possession, gang-related offenses, etc.; not surprisingly, an unprecedented wave of mass looting, random assaults, subway attacks, carjackings, and the like has hit those same cities.
Meanwhile, not wearing a mask or trying to enter an establishment while unvaccinated, peacefully challenging the teaching of “critical race theory” in the public schools, or protesting peacefully against an obviously fraudulent election, can get one labelled a domestic terrorist or insurrectionist by Federal or local authorities and placed in jail very quickly, in some cases even in solitary confinement without due process.
This explains why the Oath-Keepers, a diverse group of veterans and active-duty law enforcement officers and servicemen, have been targeted so directly by the FBI and the Department of Justice. The Oath-Keepers are dangerous not because they are violent but because they refuse to commit violence against the American people as members of the United States military without the consent of the governor of a particular state. In doing so, they are merely upholding the tenets of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 and also the military officer oath, which is to the Constitution of the United States, not the president.
The FBI prior to January 6th tried to infiltrate the Oath Keepers and compromise them, and it evidently was somewhat successful based on the amount of communications listed in the indictment. But the Oath-Keeper leadership, headed by Yale Law School graduate Stewart Rhoades, was presumably made aware of the infiltration and setup by their followers who refused to go along.
In the end, the Oath Keeper leadership did not enter the Capitol, did not carry firearms, and did not direct violence against it. It is one thing to indict in America—almost anyone or anything can be indicted by authorities for something—and another to convict in a court of law.
But the main goal of the indictments may have been less to imprison the Oath-Keepers and its leadership than to intimidate and delegitimatize them and any supporters among the United States military. This would be extra insurance should the U.S. military be asked to move against its own citizens in the foreseeable future.
For now, it seems that the populace in many cities is, if not outright welcoming the Barabbas’s back into the community, at least tolerating them or merely apathetic to the entire situation. We don’t know if Barabbas ever committed another crime after being released by Pilate, but releasing criminals who re-engage in criminal activity while punishing nonviolent protesters is not without risk to the authorities.
Even repressive governments need a veil of legitimacy to them, and if the average person no longer trusts or believes in the government as cities descend into mayhem and the social order breaks down, a few mask-mandate protesters may be the least of the authorities’ problems.

I just watched Bart Sibrel’s latest interview about his upcoming book about the death bed confession of Security Chief for a military base that filmed the first fake moon landing. The Chief named 15 people that were there including LBJ, Buzz and Neil. The film was made the first three days of June 1968 when LBJ was still President. I think Bart is correct that exposing the Moon Landing Fakery is even more important than exposing the 911 scam. Because it’s the mother of all scams. It’s the one that made the Deep State think they could pull off anything they wanted.
Check it out.
Dave……that is the final straw.
Good article. A little bit off topic but did anyone heard about this event. The alphabet agencies have been busy lately and this event comes out of a small college in Virginia not too far from the FBI Farm complex.
And you gotta love the three named assassin : Alexander Wyatt Campbell
What’s your thoughts on this Prof. Jim ?
Jews are not a race, according the USA Census reporting. Jews are an Ethnic, a cultural group and a religion.
The US Holocaust Memorial Museum’s thoughts are just words.
Words have power, Don; they are not “just words”. Words rule or lives. Are YOUR words just words? There is a line of reasoning which I came across in EST too many years ago that says reality (I would argue at least for humans) would not exist without words….distinctions. What do you think?
Yes Will Two, my words are just words. Mark Twain’s words were also just words. Readers might or might not give them power.
I’ll keep trying. Do you think Helen Keller experienced reality as we know it prior to learning language and distinctions between “things” she experienced?
Does a three year old experience the taste of a certain fruit before they know the word strawberry?
A famous news reporter that I heard this week said that 20 children were killed at Sandy Hook school in 2012. Does mean they’re really dead?
William…An excellent and concise article …..they are freeing the murders and thieves, turning major crimes into misdemeanors (would that include treason??) and surveilling and arresting those protesting their policies of hatred, proper pronouns, perversion and transgender story time.
Something is seriously wrong with that picture.
…along with this:
Professor says an adult wanting to have sex with a kid is accepted as being wrong but “it’s not obvious to me that it is in fact wrong” pic.twitter.com/ygC5nuHDNa
Me…until it’s his child being violated, eh? Hypocritical prick!
Tucker’s piece is irrefutable. But since people feel that there is no hope at the ballot box in the big cities of America, they are simply leaving for the suburbs and rural areas and to states where sanity prevails.
As for the professor, don’t assume that he would be bothered if his own child were approached by a pedophile.
“But since people feel that there is no hope at the ballot box in the big cities of America, they are simply leaving for the suburbs and rural areas and to states where sanity prevails.”
I might tend to disagree here, William. Considering the permeation of computer voting nationwide, leaving cities does not solve that problem. Creating a paper ballot system with multiple levels of verification does.
I would say most are leaving for rural areas to get away from DAs who are turning serious crime into misdemeanors. I don’t blame that at all.
I’ll add that any father who would allow his child any sexual interaction with an adult is not a father…he’s a monster who deserves the fires of hell or worse.
SO happy to see her gone….(not that I watch TV and certainly never the “View”), but this just substantiates what many of us have known; say anything you wish about this country, its leaders…even to the point of supporting treason, BUT DON”T MESS WITH THE SMALL HATS!!
ANYONE who says anything that disrupts the victim hood of the holocaust narrative will suffer the same fate as those in the UNITED STATES CONGRESS who do not take a bow to the Jewish lobby. Ask Cynthia McKinney.
“While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments. The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities,” the statement continues.
“According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Nazi regime did define Jews as a “race.” Embracing a social Darwinist “survival of the fittest” view on human society, the Nazis attributed a wide variety of negative stereotypes about Jews to an unchanging, biologically determined heritage that supposedly drove the “Jewish race” to struggle to survive by expansion at the expense of other races.”
…no argument from moi, eh?
….all this from the perverts at Disney…..
Not to worry, Goldberg will be back in two weeks. All the while collecting her $96K a week paycheck.
I hear now she will not collect her pay for this time-out.
