    Anybody who cites the Moonie Times as a source.... that's pretty much the end of any valid argument right there.

Then some people started breaking windows and going through them. Oddly enough you had Capitol police opening doors letting groups of people in. Read what you want but the security sucked.

    Why may it suck? They were going to hold hearings on election fraud before certifying the electoral votes. Who’s over the US Capitol Police? The House Speaker.

    He was contesting the election results. He wanted a big crowd of people in Washington DC to show that his supporters wanted election integrity. Several states wanted to re-certify their electoral votes. There were going to be hearings held with witnesses testifying that voter fraud took place.

    So having a crowd raid the Capitol due to very poor security did away with everything Trump was trying to do. So he had nothing to gain from it. He ended up where he is now.

    The Chinese Communist Party have to be celebrating like crazy. They will have a compromised puppet in the Executive Branch and a very infiltrated US Congress. The only thing keeping them from running roughshod over the world is us.

    Anyways all this proves is Washington DC is an insider’s club. Anyone like a Tulsi Gabbard on the left or a Donald Trump on the right who’s an outsider get’s kicked to the curb. There is no accountability if you are in this club and you can stay in for decades selling your office and become very rich. Joe Biden has done very well. He’s played the game since 1972. You don’t have to beat the US in a war. You can buy it.

    Oh come on Nick... Give that idea 20 seconds of serious thought and you'll realize how ridiculous that nonsense fantasy bullshit is.

    There are so many procedural security protocols with multiple stop-gaps, checks and authentication mechanisms involving multiple layers of authorized people to perform specific protocols involved that would make some whim by anyone virtually impossible to launch a nuclear strike.

    It's not just some fancy gizmo in a box with big red button that Trump keep stashed under his bed in the white house... get real.

    Sure, anything is possible if we let our imaginations run wild. Which statement are you referring to?

    There's a lot of moving parts to the events of January 6th. Lot of agendas. Lot of players from all political angles. Thousands of participants from all sides. Thousands of individual with different realities/truths and even different experiences that were there. Many perfectly legal and honorable with just as many subversive and criminal.

    None of this wraps up into some neat, simple cause and effect package of one man doing/saying something and a crowd taking a specific action as a result.

    The complexity of it all makes a reasonable informed assessment nearly impossible... best I can arrive at is calling it a multi-faceted shit show for now until it's sorted out.

    So the state and federal courts are not good enough for you if the results happen to not fall into your white supremacist favor? The GOP does not give one single fuck about election integrity. The electoral votes were already certified and the hearings were nothing more than shit shows by drunken Karens looking to scam a fast buck. Ol' F A T T Y wasn't contesting shit - he was intentionally inciting an insurrection.

    By "us" you mean American imperialism and occupation. Trump took a page right out of the CIA playbook on how to instigate coups only problem was his cultic MAGA fucksticks such as yourself are too stupid to properly carry it out. "Chinese government" my F A T fucking ass. This has been More than 76 years in the making, the fascist are openly on the rise with help from those in the AMERICAN government. I almost hate to say it but "the chickens have come home to roost". This empire has caused takeovers on a global scale for decades so there is mega kilos of experience for reference. You sound like another brain dead OAN cocksucking zombie.

    I also question the value for 2024... there's enough vindictive parties that will be making Trump's life hell starting on January 21st. Add to that, no constraints on the man himself after leaving office. I see his popularity falling not rising to win reelection in 4 years.

    I hope to see a group of far better candidates for POTUS in 2024 than we've seen in years.

    How do you "contest and election" with a fucking mob? He's lost over 60 court challenges actually and Trump asked China for help. You know why The Chinese Communist party is really happy? Trump ineffectually dealt with a pandemic, weakened US security alliances by pissing on our allies, and they have gained about a decades' worth of economic development over America in the last four years of the Trump fail. They also have really stupid, uninformed Americans like you believe in mindless conspiracy shit and are easily manipulated by demagogues who actions are divisive and contradict nearly everyone of their stated aims...

    Gee Zah, I actually see Republican congressmen on TV worried about the same thing. Maybe you shouldn't be so flippant about a fucking guy that won't even condemn Russian hacking or paying bounties on US military dead...

    Nice weak piss rationalization for what amounts to terrorism and sedition. Tell that to the family of the Capital Police that died of a medical emergency after fighting with these unwashed fascist pigs...I guess that's your way of saying there were "good people on both sides"...

    More details on the other casualties of the assault on the capitol. Previously it was reported that 3 people died of "medical emergencies" in addition to the MAGAtt terrorist who was shot while trying to break into a secured area, and the Capitol police officer killed by rampaging MAGAtts.

    The other 3 casualties were all MAGAtts. One died of a heart attack, one from a stroke, and in the biggest irony of the day, the third one was trampled to death by her fellow MAGAtts, while carrying this flag....



    Guess that proves MAGAtts can't read?

I originally hesitated on sharing my journey publicly, because at such a time as this, sharing ones experience often results in the unending attack of cyber bullies who sit behind screens, ready to digitally pummel anyone whose views they do not share. Heck, as it turns out, I have a few Canadian followers who believe my mere presence at the March is an “act of domestic terrorism.” Wowza...one might stew over that one, if one did not know the TRUTH about WHO we are and WHY my family and friends peaceably assembled.
    But hey, how can your word of the year be TRUTH and simultaneously let the truth be falsely narrated by bullies or the radical MSM? Furthermore, I believe in free speech...even the free speech of those who wish to silence me. So in the end, I chronicled our march experience, hoping you could see with your own eyes, the truth, as experienced by me and nearly a million others. My videos did just that. They also reveal the 99.999% of us, who did indeed, peaceably assemble. ����
    What the videos do not show, is that I stood beside people from the US, South Vietnam, China, Brazil, the UK and Australia. I prayed more often then I chanted....but I’m a sucker for “USA, USA, USA...” ��. I can still hear the National Anthem ringing in my ears as someone spontaneously started singing and thousands joined in...ALL peaceably assembled. ��������❤️
    I personally experienced none of what now showers the screens and we only learned of the violence after arriving back to the hotel. We were on the other side of the Capitol from where the protestors/rioters entered the rotunda. We never have and do not condone... nor can we explain, the violence that ensued. But we know why that is the only part the media chose to cover.
    For a million of us, yesterday’s, “how it started and how’s its going,” was far different from how it ended. For us it was a defining, inflection point moment. We did what we came to do...peaceably assemble.
    That said, now that you know the TRUTH of what I experienced, it seemed critical to share the truth about WHY we were there in the first place. So here’s my prequel if you will...and may God be the single director of the sequel:
    * We MARCHED because Reuters/Ipsos polling, tragically, shows that 39% of Americans believe ‘the election was rigged. That belief is held by Republicans (67%), Democrats (17%), and Independents (31%).
    * We STOOD in solidarity with our Constitution, in favor of the 1st Amendment. We stood for those who’s opinions we do not share as much as those whose values mirror our own.
    * We SANG worship because Christ is King and, well I’ve missed fellowship with my church, still ordered to be closed in my home state. ��
    * We HEARD one another’s struggles: Homeless, broke, depressed, suicidal, immigrated from communist countries...strangers one minute, friends the next, sharing their pain. We listened to them, because connection was all but banished by Big Gov in 2020 and I believe the “greater good,” is suffering greatly from that loss.
    * We SPOKE freely and kindly, because shame and blame have silenced people for millennia and censorship and shaming is at an all time high.
    * We CARRIED flags, because we love old glory. ���� It’s just that simple. We are tired of watching her be burned and trampled. She is so beautiful when the wind blows her colors against a blue sky. Which reminds me, if you ❤️ her like we do, don’t be afraid anymore to show her off.
    * And lastly, we MARCHED WITH our 17 year old son and daughter, because they are Americans too!! In 2020, our children were ordered to sit behind screens and let big tech own an even greater share of their attention and neurological bandwidth. We draw the line at Big Gov, Big Tech and bold strangers on social who call themselves “friends” raising our babies. And let me be totally clear... if my kids are soon old enough to vote and if my son is soon old enough to be drafted or he and/or his sister choose to enlist, thereby possibly sacrificing their lives for even those who hate them for being Patriots, then they better know EXACTLY who’s governing this Nation and what the Constitution says about inalienable rights.
    So, we leave today, totally aware that many will still not understand, many will never know the TRUTH, and still others will refuse and refute it in favor of one that serves their narrative. We knew that coming here, and are not surprised.
    But now that you know HOW and WHY 99.999% of us marched, please know that we do not seek understanding or approval. We do not fear the critics; the man in the arena has always been criticized by the man in the stands. We remain certain, resolved and faithful to our Constitutional right to peaceably assemble...both yesterday and in the future.
    And should you ever make your way to the arena...please tell us WHAT, WHY and HOW you plan to represent, because we may just stand beside you. ���� At the very least, we will respect you for being the man in the arena who courageously commits to peaceably assemble, especially during a climate where violence, shame, rioting, rage, bullying and censorship are far more en Vogue.
    So you are related to white trash? Me too!

    Hell, who isn't related to white trash?

    A whole branch of my mom's family is from some redneck towns up north. When those towns got too "citified" some of them literally moved to the Rockies in Northern Idaho & built log cabins. They aren't Nazis, but one of them does have an odd tattoo that looks like one of those crude prison ink jobs, and roughly resembles a Confederate flag. And they are known to spike watermelons with moonshine at the family reunions. Despite that, they all seem like a good bunch of people, at least on the rare occasions that I see them.

    Black Capitol Police Officers Describe The Racism They Faced

    buzzfeednews.com
    Black Capitol Police Officers Describe The Racism They Faced
    Emmanuel Felton
    8-10 minutes

    The first glimpse of the deadly tragedy that was about to unfold came at 9 a.m. on the morning of the insurrection for one Black veteran of the US Capitol Police. But it didn’t come from his superiors — instead the officer had to rely on a screenshot from Instagram sent to him by a friend.

    “I found out what they were planning when a friend of mine screenshot me an Instagram story from the Proud Boys saying, ‘We’re breaching the capitol today, guys. I hope y’all ready.’” The officer, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation from his superiors, told BuzzFeed News that it was just a sign of the chaos that was to come, which saw officers regularly finding themselves unprepared and then outmanned and overpowered by the mob.

    The officer said that while the department’s upper management had been telling them to prepare for Wednesday’s storming of the Capitol like they would for any other protest, that Instagram post sent a clear message: this wasn’t going to be just some kind of free speech protest, this was going to be a fight.

    Management’s inaction left Black police officers especially vulnerable to a mob that had been whipped up by President Donald Trump, a man who has a record of inspiring racist vigilantes to action. One of the most defining videos of that day was of one of their colleagues, another Black officer, trying in vain to hold back the tide of rioters who had broken into the building and were hunting for Congressional members.

    BuzzFeed News spoke to two Black officers who described a harrowing day in which they were forced to endure racist abuse — including repeatedly being called the n-word — as they tried to do their job of protecting the Capitol building, and by extension the very functioning of American democracy. The officers said they were wrong footed, fighting off an invading force that their managers had downplayed, and not prepared them for. They had all been issued gas masks, for example, but management didn’t tell them to bring them in on the day. Capitol Police did not respond to BuzzFeed News’s request for comment about the allegations made by officers.

    While some of the images from that day appeared to show officers standing by to let the mob into the Capitol building, the veteran officer said that they had fought them off for two hours before the attackers eventually gained access. The officer said that many of the widely spread images of smiling marauders, wandering the halls dressed in absurd costumes, had the effect of downplaying how well prepared some of the rioters were to overtake the building, and even to capture and kill Congress members.

    “That was a heavily trained group of militia terrorists that attacked us,” said the officer, who has been with the department for more than a decade. “They had radios, we found them, they had two-way communicators and earpieces. They had bear spray. They had flash bangs ... They were prepared. They strategically put two IEDs, pipe bombs in two different locations. These guys were military trained. A lot of them were former military,” the veteran said, referring to two suspected pipe bombs that were found outside the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committee.

    The officer even described coming face to face with police officers from across the country in the mob. He said some of them flashed the badges, telling him to let them through, and trying to explain that this was all part of a movement that was supposed to help.

    “You have the nerve to be holding a blue lives matter flag, and you are out there fucking us up,” he told one group of protestors he encountered inside the Capitol. “[One guy] pulled out his badge and he said, ‘we’re doing this for you.’ Another guy had his badge. So I was like, ‘well, you gotta be kidding.’”

    Another officer, a newer recruit, echoed these sentiments, saying that where he was on the steps to the rotunda on the east side of the Capitol, he was engaged in hand-to-hand battles trying to fight the attackers off. But he said they were outnumbered 10 to one, and described extraordinary scenes in which protesters holding Blue Lives Matter flags launched themselves at police officers.

    “We were telling them to back up and get away and stop, and they’re telling us, they are on our side, and they’re doing this for us, and they’re saying this as I’m getting punched in my face by one of them … That happened to a lot of us. We were getting pepper sprayed in the face by those protesters, I'm not going to even call them protestors, by those domestic terrorists,” said the officer.

    While it was a hard day for almost every officer at the Capitol, Black officers were in a particularly difficult position, he said, and he drew a stark contrast with how police handled the Black Lives Matter protests this summer.

    “There’s quite a big difference when the Black Lives Matter protests come up to the capitol,” he said. “[On Wednesday], some officers were catering to the rioters.”

    He said that what upset him the most was when he later saw images of a white colleague taking a selfie with the attackers, seeming to enjoy his time with the insurrectionists who were roaming the US Capitol with confederate flags and other symbols of white supremacy.

    “That one hurt me the most because I was on the other side of the Capitol getting my ass kicked,” he said.

    He is certain that if a group of Black Americans had stormed the Capitol they wouldn’t have gotten that kind of friendly reception from his white colleagues.

    “If you’re going to treat a group of demonstrators for Black Lives Matters one way, then you should treat this group the same god damn way. With this group you were being kind and nice and letting them walk back out. Some of them got arrested but a lot of them didn’t. Everyone who came into that Capitol should have been arrested regardless if they didn’t take anything.”

    The number of arrests has steadily increased in recent days, but it currently seems unlikely that everyone who breached the building on Wednesday will be arrested for their actions.

    Five people died on Wednesday including a Capitol Police officer. One protestor was shot and killed by Capitol Police, while three others died of medical emergencies during the attack

    The older Black officer didn’t think it was a simple case of treating the rioters differently from BLM protesters, but instead part of a bigger issue with how the agency is managed.

    “Our chief was nowhere to be found, I didn’t hear him on the radio. One of our other deputy chiefs was not there,” he said. “You don’t think it’s all hands on deck?”

    The veteran officer welcomed the resignation of US Capitol Police chief, Steven Sund, but he thinks more needs to change at the agency

    “Congress can bring anybody in the building that they want. They can go outside and find 200 people, and say hey, they’re with me. Come on in. They don't have to go through security as long as a Congressman said so,” he explained. “They just want to make Congress happy. So I think the next chief needs to come in and sit down with Congress.”

    At the end of the night, after the crowds had been dispersed and Congress got back to the business of certifying president-elect Joe Biden’s victory, the veteran officer was overwhelmed with emotion, and broke down in the rotunda.

    “I sat down with one of my buddies, another Black guy, and tears just started streaming down my face,” he said. “I said, ‘what the fuck, man? Is this America? What the fuck just happened? I’m so sick and tired of this shit.’”

    Soon he was screaming, so that everyone in the rotunda, including his white colleagues, could hear what he had just gone through.

    “These are racist ass terrorists,” he yelled out.

    In the seven years since Black Lives Matter has become a rallying cry, the image of a white cop, deciding how and when to enforce law and order, has become ubiquitous. On Wednesday, Americans saw something different, as Black officers tried to do the same, as they attempted to protect the very heart of American democracy. And instead of being honored by the supporters of a man who likes to call himself the “law and order” president, Black Capitol officers found themselves under attack.

    “I got called a ****** 15 times today,” the veteran officer shouted in the rotunda to no one in particular. “Trump did this and we got all of these fucking people in our department that voted for him. How the fuck can you support him?”

    “I cried for about 15 minutes and I just let it out.”

    Rioter Seen on Senate Floor in Body Armor Is Retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel


    Protesters enter the Senate Chamber on January 06, 2021 in Washington, DC. Congress held a joint session today to ratify President-elect Joe Biden's 306-232 Electoral College win over President Donald Trump. Pro-Trump protesters have entered the U.S. Capitol building after mass demonstrations in the nation's capital. (Photo by Win McNamee/Getty Images)
    9 Jan 2021
    Military.com | By Hope Hodge Seck and Oriana Pawlyk
    Larry Rendall Brock Jr., who wore a Kevlar helmet and military patches on his flak jacket during Wednesday's U.S. Capitol siege by pro-Trump demonstrators, retired from the Air Force Reserve in 2014 as a lieutenant colonel, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek told Military.com.

    A Capitol building rioter captured in news photographs wearing full body armor and brandishing zip tie handcuffs on the floor of the Senate has been identified as a retired Air Force officer.

    Larry Rendall Brock Jr., who wore a Kevlar helmet and military patches on his flak jacket during Wednesday's U.S. Capitol siege by pro-Trump demonstrators, retired from the Air Force Reserve in 2014 as a lieutenant colonel, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek told Military.com.

    "As a private citizen, we no longer have jurisdiction over him," she added.

    Queries about Brock's military record and awards did not receive an immediate response.

    The news about Brock's Air Force affiliation was broken by Ronan Farrow of the New Yorker Saturday.

    Farrow, who spoke with Brock and confirmed his participation in the riot, reported that Brock told him he had found the handcuffs on the floor and picked them up, then regretted it; and that he denied entering House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office suite, despite video that appeared to show him emerging from there.
    ....

    He should be brought back and charged with sedition, stupid motherfucker!

    If your goal is to prevent drumpf from running again, Impeachment won't be necessary. He will be investigated like fuck and will end up under indictment for something. At the very least he's paying several hundred million back for tax evasion in a civil case that could be made criminal. Money he doesn't really have. Why do you think he is carrying the whole "stole it" shenanigans this far? He doesn't even wanna be president at this point. But he knows he's in for it once his term expires...

    Rifle-Toting Militia Men Rail Against Mitch McConnell In Kentucky, Hail D.C. Rioters


    Be vewy vewy qwiet. We're hunting turtles!!


    huffpost.com
    Rifle-Toting Militia Men Rail Against Mitch McConnell In Kentucky, Hail D.C. Rioters
    Mary Papenfuss
    3 minutes

    Dozens of heavily armed self-described militia members dressed in camouflage descended on Kentucky’s statehouse Saturday to loudly bash Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and praise the Donald Trump-supporting rioters who stormed the nation’s Capitol.

    The men, toting rifles and zip ties, also railed against socialism, communism, and Kentucky’s Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.

    They were there to demand the democratic election for president be overturned.

    At one point they took a knee to honor Air Force veteran Ashli Babbit, who was fatally shot inside the Capitol Wednesday as she climbed through a window to the Speaker’s Lobby after a mob of Trump supporters had stormed the building.

    The brother-in-law of another victim in the attack, Roseanne Boyland, blamed Trump on Sunday for inciting the violence. Boyland, 34, reportedly died of crushing injuries as the mob surged into the Capitol.

    Beshear said after the militia protest on Twitter that “we will not be bullied. America is counting on the real patriots — those who condemn hate and terror when they see it.”
    Three days after domestic terrorists attacked our U.S. Capitol, there was a militia rally in Frankfort. They brought zip ties. We will not be intimidated. We will not be bullied. America is counting on the real patriots. Those who condemn hate and terror when they see it. ^AB
    — Governor Andy Beshear (@GovAndyBeshear) January 9, 2021
    Guns are allowed on the Capitol grounds in Kentucky — and even in much of the building in the “gun-friendly state,” noted the newspaper. But with COVID-19 restrictions, the building was closed Saturday to those without appointments.

    The Kentucky protest was among the most ominous of several demonstrations at state Capitols across the nation this week as Trump supporters continue to demand he continue as president, despite voters’ choice. There were rallies Wednesday in Kansas, Michigan, Idaho and California, among others.

    In Salem, Oregon, the white nationalist Proud Boys group clashed with left-wing protesters, using smoke bombs and a rapid-fire paintball rifle.
