The Free Speech Wars, part 5 - Owen Shroyer from INFOWARS sentenced to 60 days in Prison
Also today, the House announces impeachment proceedings against "Criminal Joe"
INFOWARS journalist Owen Shroyer was sentenced to 60 days in prison today.
His crime? Basically a technical violation of a prior deferment agreement, which we’ll get into below.
Shroyer is accused of participating in the Capitol riots of January 6, 2021 (“J6”), which the Democrats have called everything from “an insurrection” and “worse than Pearl Harbor” to “exactly like 9/11.”
However there is ample evidence to indicate J6 was a staged false flag operation organized to cover the real insurrection, which was the rigging of the November 2020 elections and the treasonous overthrow of the duly elected government of the United States of America.
As an independent journalist working at INFOWARS for Alex Jones, Owen Shroyer hosts a 3-hour daily show called “The War Room.” Shroyer used to be a sports reporter and a self-described liberal. Not unlike many “awakened patriots” (myself among them) who used to be fully indoctrinated into left wing views, and mostly voted Democrat.
Owen Shroyer’s true crime, of course, was leaving the political left and becoming a free thinking and free speaking independent journalist. Why? He’s really good at it.
Owen Shroyer is popular. People truly like him.
He comes across warm hearted, funny, creative, and his brain is sharp as a nail. Shroyer has a keen mind for political commentary, deep knowledge of American history and he’s relatable. So it’s no surprise the deep state is coming after him to make an example out of him. That’s why this case is worthy of attention.
Shroyer is also brave and he does not hesitate to go into hostile crowds to cover a story. He is regularly assaulted, pushed, his microphone grabbed or swatted at by rabid crowds, he’s been spit on multiple times. He’s one of the best in his field, doing true journalism and investigative reporting on top of hosting his 3 hours daily show. Shroyer often works 6-7 days a week, hosting weekend shows and emergency live broadcasts.
Whatever you hear about this case on the fake news, Owen Shroyer is a great American, a seasoned journalist, and has done nothing wrong. More info below.

Purported Violation of Deferred Prosecution Agreement
Shroyer told the court during the hearing, "I was not a part of any larger plan for illegal activity or violence that day." according to NBC News.
In fact, Shroyer is on video attempting to stop people from entering the Capitol on J6. Repeatedly stated by Alex Jones on The Alex Jones Show, both Jones and Shroyer tried to stop people from going into the Capitol, and Jones has featured video on his show of the two of them talking with Capitol Police and being allowed to climb up on a platform and use a megaphone to address the crowd and tell them to go home.
But in court, Shroyer was accused of violating the terms of a prior deferred prosecution agreement stemming from a prior incident where he interrupted a Congressional hearing in 2019. Under the deferred prosecution agreement, Shroyer was told he was not allowed to use “loud, threatening, or abusive language, or to engage in any disorderly or disruptive conduct, at any place upon the United States Capitol Grounds.”
And so effectively, using the megaphone on J6 to help stop people from entering the Capitol, is being used as the mechanism for charging Shroyer with a violation of his deferred prosecution agreement.
The Real Reason Owen Shroyer is the Target of the 2-Tiered (In)Justice System
The prosecution’s sentencing memo requested that Shroyer be imprisoned for “no less than 120 days” and up to a whole year. And the reasons given are ALL related to Shroyer’s speech.
They cite Shroyer’s speech up to 20 times in the sentencing memo, calling it rhetoric.
All the examples quoted are Constitutionally protected free speech. The two most incendiary according to the prosecution are when Owen chanted patriotic statements with the crowd:
“Death to tyrants!”
“We will not accept the fake election.”
“We’re here protesting.”
None of the above were things started by Owen but when he took the megaphone he first started chanting “1776!” and then later “Death to tyrants, sure but…” and that’s where he was trying to de-escalate the crowd.
The memo admits Shroyer was attempting to de-escalate the situation, which makes the prosecution and the sentencing even more bizarre:
“We just want to send a peaceful message.”
“We want to de-escalate the situation.”
“We should not have accepted the J6 narrative, and we should be proud to reject it.”
And of course Shroyer’s worst offense of all:
The prosecution in their sentencing memo said that Shroyer was not repentant, and still believed the 2020 election was stolen.
“Donald Trump won the 2020 election, and he will win in 2024 unless there is again the same type of fraud.”
LOCK HIM UP! says the prosecution.
60 days! says U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly, who sentenced Shroyer in a Washington, D.C., courtroom earlier today.
Shroyer is in good spirits today and made several statements from the courthouse steps. He intends to appeal the verdict, but there are concerns that the court will violate his rights further and order him to serve his 60 days before he gets his right to appeal. Time will tell.
There’s more about this at Infowars.com and Banned.Video
Greg Reese from the Infowars team just dropped an excellent short video about Shroyer’s sentencing on his Substack:
Meanwhile, on Twitter/X
I’ve been banned so many times on Twitter/X now that I stopped writing about it after the 4th time. I’m now on my 6th X account. My 5th account was gaining traction with my Hand Signs video getting over 30K views (one of the Twitter accounts I follow kindly recently reposted that video here). At some point I got banned from my 5th account for “ban evasion” because some algorithm discovered it was me, I guess.
It seems that every time one of my accounts gain traction, they ban me. So I’m not investing that much time into my 6th Twitter account and that’s also why I’m not linking to it here. If you’re on X and want to connect with me you can reply to the email, or comment on the article with your Twitter handle and I’ll follow you and you can follow me back. But stealth-like.
Will We See The Impeachment of Criminal Joe Biden?
From CNN: “House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced Tuesday he is calling on his committees to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, even as they have yet to prove allegations he directly profited off his son’s foreign business deals.”
To the bitter end, these disgusting scumbags in corrupt media will cover for Creepy Joe.
They covered his illegitimate “election”
They promoted the J6 false narrative (covering up the true insurrection of 11/3/20)
They lied about Hunter’s laptop and are now lying about the evidence
They covered up Creepy Joe’s incest molesting of his daughter Ashley as she wrote about in her diary which has been authenticated
“Shall I go on?”
Speaker McCarthy is a shill for the establishment. He talks a good game but has never taken any real action against the establishment.
About the Impeachment hearings, McCarthy said outside his office on Capitol Hill, “These are allegations of abuse of power, obstruction and corruption. They warrant further investigation by the House of Representatives. That’s why today I am directing our House (committees) to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.”
This is extremely dangerous to our democratic republic
You may remember that video clip that went viral of all the local news stations around the country reading the same exact script at the same time, exposing that there is really no independent news on TV except the scripted “fake news” they dish up. In that clip they all said the same catch phrase: “This is extremely dangerous to our democracy.”
In fact America’s so called “democracy” is the rule by the elites and oligarchs who have captured America’s institutions by infiltration from within. This allows them to funnel the money from the citizens to the corrupt establishment, where they do money laundering such as that exposed in Hunter’s laptop.
When they say that “democracy” is threatened by conservatives and patriots, what they mean is that their system of corruption and absolute rule is under threat.
That is the true purpose of their 2-tiered injustice system, and all the prosecutions, particularly giving long prison sentences to Proud Boys members who didn’t even attend J6.
Awakened patriots threaten the power of the deep state treasonists, and that’s why they are panicked and desperate to shut everyone down and imprison journalists like Shroyer, and even President Trump if they can.
America is not in fact a democracy but a “democratic republic” according to the Constitution. The US Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land.
A “republican form of government” is what the Constitution prescribes for America.
Look it up (okay fine I looked it up for you, here). It’s worth re-reading every now and then. Now seems like the right time.
