Well, we regret to inform you that Mr. Jack Smith is back at it. This time, he’s employing a well-worn weapon against President Trump known as “stochastic terrorism.” If you haven’t heard of this term before, be prepared—you’ll likely be hearing it frequently in the future. Here’s what the renowned investigative reporter, Julie Kelly, had to say about Mr. Smith’s recent actions in a recent thread on X:
New: Jack Smith just filed a motion describing the evidence he plans to use in Trump’s J6 trial in DC.
It’s like reading the J6 Committee TV script:
* Historical Evidence of the Defendant’s Consistent Plan of Baselessly Claiming Election Fraud
* Historical Evidence of the Defendant’s Common Plan to Refuse to Commit to a Peaceful Transition of Power
* Evidence of the Defendant and Co-Conspirators’ Knowledge of the Unfavorable Election Results and Motive and Intent to Subvert Them
* Pre- and Post-Conspiracy Evidence That the Defendant and Co-Conspirators Suppressed Proof Their Fraud Claims Were False and Retaliated Against Officials Who Undermined Their Criminal Plans
* Pre- and Post-Conspiracy Evidence of the Defendant’s Public Attacks on Individuals, Encouragement of Violence, and Knowledge of the Foreseeable Consequences
* Post-Conspiracy Evidence of the Defendant’s Steadfast Support and Endorsement of Rioters
The motion is stunning in its level of sophistry, demagoguery, and hypocrisy. The same DOJ that concocted the Trump-Russia election collusion hoax in 2016 to derail his candidacy/presidency now claims Trump tried to undermine the transition of power that year.

Smith cites Trump’s recent comments about excessive sentences for Proud Boys and promises to pardon J6ers as evidence he supported the “riot.”
Smith will use proposed pardon to impeach credibility of defense witnesses, esp anyone tied to Jan 6.
Important to note: On Monday, Rudy Giuliani will stand trial by jury in DC under the glaring eye of Judge Beryl Howell in defamation lawsuit filed by Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss.
Certain conviction and awarded damages will help Smith’s case, which is why he included it here:
What Mr. Smith is outlining in his legal brief is commonly referred to as “stochastic terrorism,” and it’s not the first instance where Democrats have drawn from this source for their toxic agenda. As a matter of fact, a year ago, Revolver extensively covered this topic in a viral article that is both informative and eye-opening and sheds light on the “meat and potatoes” of the Democrats’ crusade against President Trump.
Liberals and the left have been stealthily and subversively designing a justification for sweeping speech crackdowns for the past decade, under the label of “stochastic terrorism.”
Basically, “stochastic terrorism” is the idea that, when somebody on the right criticizes somebody, they aren’t really just making a political argument. Instead, they are trying to “stoke hatred” in the expectation that some random third party will be “radicalized” and then commit political violence on their behalf.
In the modern sense of the phrase, “stochastic terrorism” was first coined by a left-wing blogger in 2011, who used it to describe the nefarious terrorist activities of, er, Sean Hannity:
Stochastic terrorism is the use of mass communications to incite random actors to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable. In short, remote-control murder by lone wolf.
This is what occurs when Bin Laden releases a video that stirs random extremists halfway around the globe to commit a bombing or shooting.
This is also the term for what Beck, O’Reilly, Hannity, and others do.
The stochastic terrorist is the person who is responsible for the incitement. For example they go on radio or television and stir up hatred toward a particular person or group.
The random actor, or “lone wolf” as the term is used in law enforcement and intel, is the person who responds to the incitement by carrying out the violent or terrorist act against the target person or group. For example they shoot someone or detonate a bomb. While their action may have been statistically predictable (e.g. “given sufficient provocation, someone will probably do such-and-such”), the specific person and the specific act are not yet predictable.
But “stochastic terror” really took off as a favored term with the arrival of Donald Trump, and the concomitant conclusion on the left that America was becoming a fascist dystopian hate-hellscape.
There’s much more to explore in this article that will provide you with a deeper understanding of what the left aims to achieve with “stochastic terrorism.” So, we encourage you to read it in its entirety. We can’t fight back if we don’t understand the plot.
Many folks tend to dismiss this legal mumbo jumbo Jack is hurling against the wall as irrelevant or point out that it’s non-criminal, which might be helpful in a civilized nation. Sadly, that’s not the situation we’re currently facing in this polarized, dystopian country. This type of legal brief, with its accusations of “stochastic terror,” is precisely what an Obama-appointed judge needs to give her weak case some semblance of credibility, allowing it to be swiftly disseminated by the propaganda media.
