Trump supporters continue demonstrations in DC, defy curfew after violent Capitol Hill riots
Quote
WARNING: This event is streaming live and may contain adult language and footage not suitable for all viewers. Viewer discretion is advised.

Pro-Trump protesters stormed the Capitol building in Washington, DC after a march decrying the vote in the Electoral College and oppose Congress' certification of the Republican president's Nov. 3 election loss to president-elect Joe Biden.

Now police have responded to remove the angry mob.

The protests interrupted Congress as Republican lawmakers mounted their first official challenge to the certification of Biden’s presidential election win, objecting to state results from Arizona as they took up Trump’s relentless effort to overturn the election results in an extraordinary joint session of Congress.

Police rightist bias is more obvious than ever, and there might be a military rightist bias in play also (17:20):

For the record, I can't stand how False Leftist Uygur insists on making this about "loving vs hating democracy". If we have three countries A, B and C whose people have the characteristics:

A: agree to not have elections
B: agree to have elections and then respect the election results
C: agree to have elections but then do not respect the election results

it is perfectly possible to consider B (which displays commitment to keeping contract) superior to C (which fails to keep contract) without considering B superior to A (which does not fail to keep contract, but merely has better contractual content). So here is how the split works:

False Left worldview: B > C > A
True Left worldview: A > B > C

Mary Trump Predicts A “Dangerous”  Next Two Weeks Under the Trump Administration

I chatted with President Donald Trump’s niece Mary, the author of “Too Much and Never Enough,” on her uncle’s behavior today.  “Donald is feeling on the one hand emboldened they got away with it,” Mary said.  “On the other hand he’s locked out of Twitter, he’s probably more desperate than he’s ever been in his life. Short of the congress stepping in impeaching and removing him the next two weeks are going to be the most dangerous in our countries history and after today that’s really saying something.”

Keilar: Trump's GOP enablers have blood on their hands
Quote
CNN's Brianna Keilar says that Republican lawmakers who support President Trump have fueled the language and conspiracy theories that led to the riots at the US Capitol.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lG_Brq8CSM

People have been pointing out a lot lately how much blood Trump and the GOP have on their hands, are we ever actually going to do something about it or just keep paying it lip service? What about Alex Jones while we're on the subject of people with blood on their hands? I saw plenty of INFO WARS signs among the terrorists on Capitol Hill yesterday....

Perhaps Americans are finally starting to learn that 'freedom of speech' does not imply a free soap box and a megaphone, contrary to what social media corporations would like you to think? Everything in this life has consequences, including speech.

Late Thursday sources told CNN that Trump's mental state was deteriorating and he was 'ranting' and 'raving' as he watched the 25th Amendment being discussed on television - with Pelosi and Schumer's demand being played repeatedly.

But if they had hopes that Pence might join in a speedy potential effort to seize the reins of power from a volatile Trump in his final days in office, the reception they got may provide an answer.

'Speaker Pelosi and I tried to call the vice president this morning to tell him to do this,' Schumer told reporters in New York Thursday. 'They kept us on hold for 25 minutes and then said the Vice President wouldn't come on the phone.'

A newly elected lawmaker from West Virginia is facing calls to resign and could be imprisoned after filming himself storming the US Capitol building and whipping up the angry mob with chants of “freedom”

Derrick Evans, who was sworn into West Virginia’s House of delegates last month, wore a black helmet as he forced his way into the building among a crush of rioters, live streaming the whole episode on the internet.

In the now-deleted video, Evans can be heard encouraging people to push into the building, shouting: “They’re in! They’re in! They’re in!” when the doors were finally breached.

Referring to himself in third person, he then shouts: “Derrick Evans is in the Capitol!”

Alexey Kovalyov, an investigative editor at the Meduza Project, in turn, added that the Malimons arrived in the United States from Moldova.

"Before you succumb to #Russiagate rage, please mind that the Malimons arrived to the US from Moldova, not Russia (which is evident from their social media). So yes, gullible and reckless, but very unlikely a nefarious GRU op," he said on Twitter.

It's not like Moldova had an entire breakaway region (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transnistria) of "Russian world"-subhumans. In any case, her presence is a clear testament to the un-American nature of the riot.

Daniel Dale debunks GOP lawmakers' Antifa claims
Quote
In the wake of pro-Trump supporters storming the Capitol Wednesday, several Republican allies of the President are attempting to shift blame to supposed left-wing activists, namely Antifa.
Reps. Mo Brooks, Paul Gosar and Matt Gaetz have all promoted the idea that left-wing extremist group Antifa snuck in with Trump supporters during the rally to provoke the mob.
"Evidence growing that fascist ANTIFA orchestrated Capitol attack with clever mob control tactics," Brooks, an Alabama Republican, tweeted.
"This has all the hallmarks of Antifa provocation," Gosar, an Arizona Republican, wrote.
Gaetz was more specific when he cited, on the House floor -- and to loud boos from his Democratic colleagues -- an article from the Washington Times, which has since been removed from their website. The article said that a facial recognition firm, XRVision, "claims Antifa infiltrated Trump protesters who stormed Capitol."
The Florida congressman began by saying he didn't "know if the reports are true" but went on to cite the Washington Times article, saying it contained "compelling evidence" that Antifa had infiltrated the Trump-supporting rioters' ranks.
"(S)ome of the people who breached the Capitol today were not Trump supporters," Gaetz said. "They were masquerading as Trump supporters and, in fact, were members of the violent terrorist group antifa."
Facts First: None of this is true. The firm cited by the Washington Times has told two news outlets the story is false. The Federal Bureau of Investigation said there is no indication, as of Friday, that Antifa infiltrated the mob. Furthermore, right-wing extremists have been identified in the crowd that stormed the Capitol and CNN has, as of the publishing of this article, seen no evidence whatsoever of a left-wing infiltration of the mob.

Trump Family, Meadows, Guilfoyle, et al., Festively Watching Capitol Assault at Their Private Party
Quote
Summary: Yesterday, while people were dying, bombs being safely detonated, Legislators' offices breached, and property destroyed or defaced, the question came up, "WHERE'S TRUMP? He's needed to tell these rioters to stand down."


Media reported that calls to Trump were being IGNORED. He must be busy on something else, right? No, he wasn't. This video shows why Trump was not answering the phone. He was watching the CAPITOL ASSAULT ON TV (I assume with drool running down the corners of his mouth).


As you watch it notice the festive party atmosphere. Music is blaring. Everyone has smiles on their faces. Even Kimberly Guilfoyle does a little dance for you. The cheery on top, at the end she asks the rioters to get out there sand FIGHT.



Yes, this video is as disgusting as you think it is.

Trump Rioters Bring Violence To State Capitols Across The Country
...
In Arizona, members of a pro-Trump group **** the window of a museum at the state Capitol, reportedly while shouting for Republican Gov. Doug Ducey to exit the building.

Ducey had tweeted an hour earlier condemning the scene at the U.S. Capitol and imploring followers to respect “peaceful transitions of power.”

AZ Central reports protesters brought a guillotine to the building.
...
Separately, the Texas Republican Party fired its sergeant-at-arms Wednesday after the man, Walter West, posted a message on social media apparently endorsing violence at the Capitol in Washington, D.C.

In Colorado, at least one protester was arrested at the state Capitol, with CBS Denver’s Rick Sallinger reporting the use of a stun gun. Denver Mayor Michael Hancock (D) ordered all city buildings closed as a precaution.

Protesters in Kansas entered the Statehouse on Wednesday afternoon. Unlike what transpired elsewhere around the country, the group in Kansas obtained a permit that granted them legal access to the building, according to KSNT.

In Georgia, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) was forced to leave the Capitol building out of concerns for his safety as militia members gathered outside.

In New Mexico, the Statehouse in Santa Fe was evacuated as a precaution after hundreds of Trump supporters congregated outside, with some shouting to “arrest the governor.”
...
Protesters gathered outside the Utah Capitol also forced the evacuation of that building. Rioters reportedly pepper-sprayed a Salt Lake City Tribune photographer after growing upset he was documenting the protest.

Similar protests also broke out at state capitol buildings in Wyoming, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and California.

Quote
At least six Republican state legislators took part in events surrounding the storming of the US Capitol. West Virginia Delegate Derrick Evans posted a video of himself entering the building but later deleted it, The New York Times reported.

Tennessee state lawmaker Terri Lynn Weaver told the Tennessean that she was “in the thick of it” during the rally before the storming of the Capitol. She said there was “Just a whole heck of a lot of patriots here". She later tweeted a picture of the mob at the base of the Capitol, saying: “Epic and historic day gathering with fellow Patriots from all over the nation DC.”

Virginia state Senator Amanda Chase denied that any violence had taken place, despite the overwhelming evidence, and later accused the police of murder after the shooting of a California woman inside the Capitol. "A veteran who was brutally murdered by Capitol Police today,” Chase wrote on Facebook according to the Henrico Citizen.

“These were not rioters and looters; these were Patriots who love their country and do not want to see our great republic turn into a socialist country. I was there with the people; I know. Don’t believe the fake media narrative," she wrote.

Missouri State Representative Justin Hill skipped his swearing-in ceremony to be in DC. He marched to the Capitol but didn’t enter, the St Louis Post-Dispatch reported him as saying.

Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano made sure that a busload of people could be in DC. He said in a video that he didn’t participate in the clashes with police, The Hill reported.

Michigan State Representative Matt Maddock was also at the scene, according to The Hill.

Gov. Hogan: Congress Leaders Were ‘Pleading For Help’ From National Guard
Quote
Governor Larry Hogan (R-MD) describes his call with Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) while the Capitol was under attack, who he says was "pleading for help" as he was huddled with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi in the Capitol bunkers. But for more than an hour, Hogan was unable to send in national guard troops because he "didn't have authorization yet" from the Pentagon.

Quote
A far-right, pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol with Confederate flags and weapons in an attempt to stop members of Congress from counting Electoral College votes on Wednesday. Senators and representatives ran for cover, remaining on lockdown until the extremists left.

The response by both law enforcement and political leaders is still being parsed out, but activists and scholars say there is a deeper, underlying issue that must be considered: Violent expressions of white power are the norm when white anger and resentment rooted in racism exists.

No, violent expressions of "white" power are the norm, period. The colonialists were neither angry at nor resentful towards the people whom they colonized.

Quote
“What we’re seeing is vintage white rage,” says Carol Anderson, an Emory University professor and the author of “White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide.”

In "White Rage," Anderson highlights the ways that white violence is carried out subtly through legislation and oppressive policies. And others say Wednesday's display is a clear picture of how common visible white violence is in the face of the social advancement of nonwhite people.

"It's entirely about the perceived loss of the power of whiteness," said Bree Newsome Bass, the human rights activists known for taking down a Confederate flag at the South Carolina Statehouse in 2015. "People feel like they are losing something if whiteness no longer carries privilege and power. If there's racial equality, they feel like they have been denied what the country was supposed to be."

No, they are being denied what Western civilization was supposed to be.

Quote
"Part of why Trump inspires this cult-like loyalty is because he embodies that grievance," Newsome Bass added. "When he says 'I have been robbed,' he is speaking for the white supremacist cause. When there's a perception that the power of whiteness is being lost, the act of violence is what reinforces and reassures it."
...
Bass added: “Whiteness is a political power dynamic. Events like yesterday serve to remind everyone of the rules of race. I’m part of a chorus of people who have been sounding the alarm for a while now. It even goes back to the Bush administration. There is a long-standing history of ritual violence that reinforces the racial dynamic.”

And the only way to change these rules is with retaliatory violence. Not "decency", as Biden advocates. Not "deprogramming", as the False Left advocates. 74.2 million corpses' worth of blood fertilizing US soil could do it, though. But does the will exist to get it done?

Its owners, Thu and Thuc Ly, and their son and the general manager of the restaurant, Thien Ly, all attended the rally by plane. They returned to Chicago by Thursday, Thien Ly told TODAY Food.

Hundreds of people shared screenshots on all social media platforms of Thu Ly’s post from the rally, which was originally shared on Facebook by Thien’s sister, Gwen Ly. Screenshots were also shared of a selfie posted to Facebook by Thien Ly of him and his father, Thuc Ly, on the plane to Chicago.

“Jan#6 Get Wild! #fightfortrump,” Thien Ly's caption said.
...
Now, Thien Ly says, ownership and the restaurant's employees are getting death threats over the phone and on social media.

“I’m being labeled a terrorist for attending the rally,” he said. “We’re getting death threats called in to the restaurant, people threatening my employees, people saying they’re gonna burn down our restaurant.”

I would love to see it happen, preferably with the entire family trapped inside.

Tank Noodle, a Vietnamese restaurant in Chicago, is being bombarded by hate mail and threats after its owners attended the “Save America” rally in Washington D.C. on Wednesday. Its owners, Thu and Thuc Ly, and their son and the general manager of the restaurant, Thien Ly, all attended the rally by plane. They returned to Chicago by Thursday, Thien Ly told TODAY Food.

“Jan#6 Get Wild! #fightfortrump,” Thien Ly's caption said.

Thien Ly, 33, verified the screenshots to TODAY, saying he traveled to Washington, D.C. with his parents, his mother-in-law, and a family friend for the rally. Thien Ly said the group was unaware of the violence occurring at the Capitol during the time they were at the rally at the White House. He said they had not gone to the Capitol and only attended the rally.

"We’re not violent people and it’s horrifying to see what happened at the Capitol," he told TODAY. "It’s a sad day for the country. We’re in disbelief about what’s going on right now."

Now, Thien Ly says, ownership and the restaurant's employees are getting death threats over the phone and on social media.

“I’m being labeled a terrorist for attending the rally,” he said. “We’re getting death threats called in to the restaurant, people threatening my employees, people saying they’re gonna burn down our restaurant.”

His sister arrived to open the restaurant on Friday morning and found a shotgun shell casing sitting in front of the store.

Thien Ly deactivated his Facebook profile and the Facebook page of Tank Noodle because he was receiving so many death threats, he told TODAY.
...
“We had a great following, which now is probably going to get worse for us,” Thien Ly said. “We’ve been making it through just enough to keep our employees employed and pay our bills and stay afloat.”

People have also flooded the Tank Noodle Yelp page with 1-star reviews, causing Yelp to issue an alert on their page, warning people were posting "their views on the news rather than actual consumer experiences with the business."

"I do not want to spend my money at a place that is run by people who support white supremacist insurrectionists," one of the new reviews, posted Jan. 6, reads. "AVOID this place since the owners are coming back from the super spreader event."

Another thing leftists can do is find out if they are renting the property for the restaurant. If so, they should contact the property owner and pressure them to throw Tank Noodle off the property.

Capitol Riot Signifies ‘End Of The Trump Era,’ Says Former CIA Director
Quote
Former CIA Director and NBC’s senior intelligence and national security analyst John Brennan joins Weekend TODAY to discuss the aftermath following the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol. Brennan also says there needs to be “a unanimous denunciation of any type of use of violence” as white nationalists and militia groups attempt “to take action into their own hands.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sq74yliVlyY

It is SO easy to debunk the ideology of "white nationalism" as the oxymoron it truly is, when are people in the government actually going to do it? "White" is a tribal identity not a race, tribalism and nationalism are mutually exclusive. It's 2021 and no one in the U.S. government is able to recognize this fact? Does anyone in the U.S. government even truly understand what a nation-state is and how they came into being in the first place? And now we're all supposed to believe the U.S. government has what it takes to resolve these issues once and for all and heal this country and unite Americans? This is turning into a sicker joke by the minute....

How long have we here been railing against "white nationalism" and it's danger to the nation-state now, 15 years, 20? I know I starting talking **** to "white nationalists" on their forums and blogs 2006-2007 ish, before I even found you folks. Amazing! Absolutely amazing!!!

Quote
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 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.

Corporations halt donations to GOP who voted to overturn elections
Quote
Some of America's biggest companies are suspending donations to Republican Congress members who objected to the Electoral College's votes.
The growing list of those corporations, including BlueCross BlueShield, Citigroup (C), Commerce Bank and Marriott (MAR), comes after a pro-Trump mob breached the US Capitol last Wednesday to fight against the ceremonial counting of electoral votes that confirmed President-elect Joe Biden's win.
147 Republicans voted against certification of the electoral votes in a joint session of Congress last Wednesday evening. They included Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville, among hundreds other congress members.
"At the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, we continuously evaluate our political contributions to ensure that those we support share our values and goals," said Kim Keck, BlueCross BlueShield's president and CEO, in a statement. "In light of this week's violent, shocking assault on the United States Capitol, and the votes of some members of Congress to subvert the results of November's election by challenging Electoral College results, BCBSA will suspend contributions to those lawmakers who voted to undermine our democracy."
The health insurance company's BLUEPAC political action committee -- supported only by employee contributions -- donated $246,750 to Republican lawmakers during the 2020 cycle. That included $10,000 to Sen. Tuberville, $1,000 to Sen. Marshall and $500 to Sen. Hawley.
BlueCross BlueShield said it's stopping donations to all 147 Republicans who challenged the Electoral College results.

FBI warns 'armed protests' being planned at all 50 state capitols and in Washington DC
Quote
The FBI has received information indicating "armed protests" are being planned at all 50 state capitols and the US Capitol in Washington, DC in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20, according to an internal bulletin obtained by CNN.
The news comes as security measures are being stepped up ahead of Inauguration Day, with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies preparing for the possibility of more violence after rioters stormed the US Capitol last week leaving five people dead, including a Capitol Police officer.
Even as federal investigators continue to track down suspects from last week's attack, the bulletin highlights concerns that the US Capitol siege was perhaps just the beginning of potentially violent actions from supporters of President Donald Trump who have been animated by his lies about a stolen election.

Fmr. Sen. Jeff Flake: Not One GOP Colleague Believed There Was Election Fraud
Quote
House Republican leaders have announced they’ll not be whipping colleagues at tomorrow’s impeachment vote, instead allowing members to vote their conscience. This comes in the midst of major soul-searching for the GOP after last week’s violent insurrection at the Capitol. What's next for a party that has been dominated by Trumpism these past four years? Jeff Flake, who left the Senate in 2018, was one of the few Republicans to speak out against the President. He speaks with Michel Martin about what lies ahead.

Quote
Capitol Police informed Democrats on Monday night on a private call that there could be three more possibly grim attacks happening in the coming days, Huffington Post reports. New leaders of the U.S. Capitol Police told House Democrats that they were keeping an eye on the three separate plans that could be seriously dangerous for members of Congress, particularly as Washington D.C. gets ready for Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration on Jan. 20.

According to the USCP, the first is a demonstration advertised as the “largest armed protest ever to take place on American soil.” The second is a demonstration in honor of Ashli Babbitt, the woman who was shot while attempting to get into the Speaker’s Lobby during last Wednesday’s siege of the Capitol.

The third demonstration would comprise of insurrectionists encircling the Capitol, the White House, and the Supreme Court, and then obstructing Democrats’ entrance into the Capitol—maybe even assassinating them—so that the government can be handed over to Trump-supporting Republicans. The rioters hoped to protect Trump in the White House and shut down the courts.

Investigators pursuing signs US Capitol riot was planned
Quote
Evidence uncovered so far, including weapons and tactics seen on surveillance video, suggests a level of planning that has led investigators to believe the attack on the US Capitol was not just a protest that spiraled out of control, a federal law enforcement official says.
Among the evidence the FBI is examining are indications that some participants at the Trump rally at the Ellipse, outside the White House, left the event early, perhaps to retrieve items to be used in the assault on the Capitol.
A team of investigators and prosecutors are also focused on the command and control aspect of the attack, looking at travel and communications records to determine if they can build a case that is similar to a counterterrorism investigation, the official said.

Since the GOP was literally maskless and taunting congress just prior to the attack this should not be surprising at all. Removing the panic buttons though, these people wanted Democrats to get murdered by the numbers didn't they, how else do you explain that strategy?

Think about this too, as the GOP members taunted congress right before the attack, they knew they were doing so in the hopes that their democratic colleagues would be murdered shortly after right in front of them by an angry mob....

And they're not going to go away. They either need to be brought back to reality, or some other demagogue who is even more effective than Donald Trump is going to come along and capitalize....

Indeed. "I think most of us are open to suggestions at this point"? Or perhaps; Americans, leftist Americans especially, (and if they can be honest with themselves?) are for the first time going to understand what would make Germans put on skull and cross bone and thunderbolt insignias and vote a military dictatorship into power. Two things the U.S. still has going for itself that aren't similar, the bottom has not completely fallen out of the economy and it doesn't have other countries knocking on the door asking for money, nor did it lose WWI just prior to all of those problems occurring. Germany had pretty much defeated Russia, France, and England, when the United States entered the war. The Marxist 'general strike' in Germany did not help Germany in the fight against the U.S. either....

Did we not hear how the GOP tried to defend not voting for Trump's impeachment? Only 10 republicans voted for Trump's impeachment. The rest played the victim and blamed democrats for an insurrection many of the Republicans obviously planned. They even verbally attacked democrats for things that had absolutely nothing to with the impeachment or insurrection. Jews still play the victims today for what happened to them during WWII while they simultaneously colonize Palestine, yet Marx himself was Jewish and many Jews were Bolsheviks and Marxists themselves at the time. Jews will often attack you with their "anti-Semitic" slander and defamation if you point these type of facts out in a public space.

It is untrue, however, that the rightists cannot function by denying reality. If they win, they will be the ones writing history, and their version would then be what will be assumed to be real by people in the future.

We should be talking about how to stop the rightists from winning, not behaving as if there is no chance they can win. But False Leftists are proving incapable of seriously confronting this problem, because to seriously confront the problem starts with admitting that the rightists are not going to be "deprogrammed", which means either they are exterminated or they win eventually.

But no, False Leftists are just going to keep saying "I don't know what to do with these people" at the end of every video.....

As DC Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone lay on the ground at the US Capitol building, stunned and injured, he knew a group of rioters were stripping him of his gear. They grabbed spare ammunition, ripped the police radio off his chest and even stole his badge.
Then, Fanone, who had just been Tasered several times in the back of the neck, heard something chilling that made him go into survival mode.
"Some guys started getting a hold of my gun and they were screaming out, 'Kill him with his own gun,'" said Fanone, who's been a police officer for almost two decades.
Fanone, one of three officers who spoke with CNN, described his experience fighting a mob of President Donald Trump's supporters who'd invaded the Capitol in an insurrection unheard of in modern American history.
Federal officials have said the details of the violence that come out will be disturbing.
"People are going to be shocked by some of the egregious contact that happened in the Capitol," acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin said Tuesday in reference to attacks on police officers.

Federal prosecutors have found 'strong evidence’ that the mobs of pro-Trump rioters who attacked the U.S. Capitol last week were hoping to kill members of Congress.
Quote
A new court filing by federal prosecutors says that the domestic terrorists violently broke into the Capitol with a plan to ‘capture and assassinate elected officials.’

The court document was filed as part of an effort to keep Jacob Chansley—the man who was seen inside the Senate chamber covered in body paint, wearing a horned headdress, and carrying a spear—detained. In addition to violently entering the Capitol building, Chansley left a note for VP Pence at his place in the Senate chamber that read: ‘It’s only a matter of time, justice is coming.’ Chansley has said that he was planning to go back to D.C. for the inauguration.

‘Chansley is a self-proclaimed leader of the QAnon,’ the prosecutors wrote. ‘[He] is an active participant in—and has made himself the most prominent symbol of—a violent insurrection that attempted to overthrow the United States government.’

Federal prosecutors raised similar considerations last week for a retired Air Force officer who held bunches of zip ties, allegedly hoping ‘to restrain those he viewed as enemies—presumably, federal lawmakers’ and ‘to take hostages.’

Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin has recently contradicted these claims, however, saying that there is ‘no direct evidence at this point of kill, capture teams.’ Sherwin added that ‘there may be a disconnect’ and confusion among the multiple prosecutors under different jurisdictions across the country.

The FBI has requested help from the public in identifying those who were part of the attack. Yesterday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said that the bureau has already made more than 100 arrests related to the event.

A captured Arab ISIS fighter in Syria who holds Israeli citizenship has said that living through the Second Intifada and in the West Bank has taught him that Israel “has not done 1% of what Bashar al-Assad has done.”

In an interview with BBC Arabic’s Feras Kilani, as reported by MEMRI, Sayyaf Sharif Daoud said in a July 16 interview that despite tensions between Israelis and Palestinians, Israel does not **** women nor brutally kill its own citizens. Assad’s forces have been accused of using **** as a weapon of war and summary executions since the Syrian conflict started in 2011.

“There was fighting and all that, but Israel has not raped women or stripped them naked on TV, and it has not killed with such barbarity,” Daoud said in the interview.

While Daout joined ISIS, he claims that his father had warned him against joining either Hamas or Fatah, the ruling factions in Gaza and the West Bank. Now, he said he hopes to be able to return to Israel and a “normal life.”

He said Israel is a democratic state.

“Us Arabs live together in Israel with the Jews. There is no injustice. We are treated just like the Jews,” Daoud said.

Over 120 people connected to the attack on the Capitol have been arrested, but only around 25 domestic terror cases have been opened since the attack.

Suspected U.S. Capitol 'smiling lectern guy' getting death threats, attorney says
Quote
Adam Johnson, 36, made his first federal court appearance Monday afternoon in downtown Tampa. Federal officials said Johnson was caught on camera holding House Speak Nancy Pelosi’s lectern.

The judge agreed to give Johnson a $25,000 bond, with several conditions that include surrendering all of his weapons and his passport. He will also have a curfew and an ankle monitor. Johnson will be allowed to travel anywhere in Florida and parts of Washington, D.C. However, he can only travel to D.C. for court matters and meeting with his attorneys.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jiIgvDLyvE4

So, he reminds us after the death threats that he is a father of five, but putting his life in the hands of a violent insurrection did not concern him that day? Or, did he understand before hand that there would be little to no resistance against the insurrection that day, and if so, how did he know?

One thing we can be sure about is that if rightists are defeated, it will not be by False Leftists. You cannot talk your way out of this situation, False Leftist. Barbarians do not care for your framing. Barbarians will not stop doing what they are doing just because you tell them they are not the future. The only effective way to stop barbarians like the one in the video in the previous post requires them dying by the tens of millions. But False Leftists will not only refuse to say this, but will call us the bad guys for saying it.

For the record, AOC is pathetic on this issue:

Funding?! The entire GDP of the US could not deprogram just the one barbarian in the video in the previous post, let alone the tens of millions more of them, and you are a moron if you do not see this! You can throw money at barbarians all day long and they will just laugh at you!

The only person so far who apparently senses something is wrong with the left's current approach is Bowser:

What she's saying: In response to anchor Chuck Todd's question on how long D.C. will be guarded like a fortress or "armed camp," Bowser countered: "I think the question is a bigger question, Chuck. It is how serious is our country going to take domestic white extremism?"

    "And I think what we saw here last week is that we didn't take it seriously enough. We never believed that so-called patriots would attempt to overthrow their government and kill police officers, but that's exactly what happened."

    "So I do think we have to take another posture in our city that is more domestic terrorist-focused and external to our country and enact accordingly."

    Bowser added that fences and armed troops in the streets of D.C. should not be permanent, but "we do have to take a different posture."

Once upon a time, there was a great True Leftist who had the required posture for dealing with barbarians:

The Hunger Plan caused the deaths of millions of citizens in the German-occupied territories of the Soviet Union.[10] The historian Timothy Snyder estimates that “4.2 million Soviet citizens (largely Russians, Belarusians, and Ukrainians) [were] starved by the German occupiers in 1941–1944″.[11]

His message to Trumpists (4:07):

Quote
"Trump's not going to win, so if Trump's not going to win, now's not the time to do your revolution."

Allow me to interject some strategic logic into this absurdity. If I know the enemy's attack will fail, I would be trying to goad the enemy into attempting the attack so that they can actually fail and expose themselves at the same time (rather than stay concealed and be able to attack later). So to ask the enemy not to attack BECAUSE their attack will (supposedly) fail makes no sense whatsoever. And the fact that he is able to say something like that makes clear he does not understand the first thing about conflict. My guess is that asking the enemy not to attack (a.k.a. begging for mercy) is in fact the only thing this guy knows how to do. Faced with an actual attack, does he look like he would know how to respond? His speaking tone alone reveals he is no warrior!

The existence of guys like this on the left should be considered an embarassment to leftists.

GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert gave Capitol tour to ‘large’ group before the riots, Democratic lawmaker says
Quote
Amid a push to investigate whether any GOP lawmakers aided rioters at the Capitol, several Democrats last week accused an unnamed House Republican of leading groups on “reconnaissance” tours of the building before the Jan. 6 attack.

Now, two Democratic lawmakers say they personally saw one Republican — Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado — with a “large” group in a tunnel connected to the Capitol days before the attempted insurrection that left four rioters and one police officer dead.

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) said on Monday that he and Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) had both seen Boebert in the tunnel outside the Cannon House Office Building with a group sometime in the three days before the riots. He said he didn’t know who was in the group or if anyone with Boebert later participated in the attack.

Trump supporters, some armed, gather outside US state capitol buildings
Quote
Supporters of President Donald Trump gathered outside several state capitol buildings in various U.S. states on Sunday, some of whom were armed, but despite FBI warnings of potential violence leading up to inauguration day, most of the demonstrations remained calm with some groups leaving in various states after a few hours. Some states, however, saw no protesters at all.

From Pennsylvania to Texas, Ohio to Michigan, capitol buildings saw increased security, with National Guard and military members stationed outside less than two weeks since Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6.

Ohio saw one of the larger demonstrations, with several people carrying long guns outside the Statehouse.

Others who attended some of the protests said they weren't backing Trump and had instead come to voice their support for gun rights or oppose government overreach.

More than a third of state governors had called out the National Guard to help protect their state capitols and aid local law enforcement officers, with some issuing states of emergency. Some capitol buildings have also been closed to the public until after the inauguration of Joe Biden on Wednesday.

Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) agreeing with debunked conspiracy theories about deadly mass school shootings, including the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

According to Media Matters, Greene appeared to agree with a comment on Facebook that said, ‘none of the school shootings were real or done by the ones who were supposedly arrested for them,’ a false claim with no merit or evidence to support it. Greene also wrote this baseless conspiracy theory herself on Facebook in 2018: ‘I am told that Nancy Pelosi tells Hillary Clinton several times a month that ‘we need another school shooting’ in order to persuade the public to want strict gun control.’

Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), whose district includes Parkland, Florida, denounced Greene, saying she should ‘disavow these comments, she should apologize to everyone that she has offended, and, most importantly, she should tell her followers the truth.’

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter died in the Parkland shooting, wrote on Twitter, ‘This is my daughter Jaime, she was killed that day. Do you still believe this? Why would you say this?' Guttenberg called on Greene to resign or for the House to expel her. Everytown for Gun Safety, and Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action, have also called on Greene to resign.

Over a third of the Senate opposes impeaching Trump
Quote
The Senate tabled an effort by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to force a vote on the constitutionality of former President Donald Trump's impeachment trial, but the vote offered an indicator for how Republican senators -- who overwhelmingly voted for Paul's measure -- feel about the trial.
Paul's motion was killed on a 55-45 vote, with five Republicans joining all Democrats, meaning 45 Republicans voted for Paul's effort. Republican Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania crossed party lines to vote with Democrats.
In order to convict Trump at his trial, at least 17 Republicans will need to vote with all Democrats when the trial begins next month. Significantly, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell sided with Paul in the vote -- a potential indicator that he agrees the constitutionality of impeaching a former President is in question.
Paul argued after the vote that the fact that 45 Republicans sided with him "shows that impeachment is dead on arrival."
"If you voted that it was unconstitutional then how in the world would you ever hope to convict somebody for this?" Paul asked, adding ,"45 of us, almost the entire caucus, 95% of the caucus, voted that the whole proceeding was unconstitutional. This is a big victory for us. Democrats can beat this partisan horse as long as they want -- this vote indicates it's over, the trial is all over."
Paul, a Kentucky Republican, told reporters earlier in the day, "I think there will be enough (votes) to show that more than a third of the Senate thinks that the whole proceeding is unconstitutional, which will show that ultimately they don't have the votes to do an impeachment." #CNN​ #News

Pelosi slams Republican response to Marjorie Taylor Greene
Quote
Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed House Republican leaders for not doing more to rebuke GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia over her shocking rhetoric and past statements, saying the focus must be on leadership.
"What I'm concerned about is the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives, who is willing to overlook, ignore those statements," Pelosi said at her weekly news conference, days after CNN reported Greene repeatedly indicated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians -- including Pelosi -- in 2018 and 2019 before being elected to Congress. The statements were part a CNN KFile review of hundreds of posts and comments from Greene's Facebook page.
Greene is also facing criticism for a video of her confronting Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg before she was elected to Congress went viral Wednesday. And last week, other students who survived the Parkland, Florida, school shooting and families of the victims are calling for Greene's resignation, after comments surfaced that showed her agreeing with people who said the 2018 shooting was a "false flag" operation, remarks Pelosi called special attention to Thursday. The California Democrat also criticized Greene's placement on the House Committee on Education and Labor.
"Assigning her to the Education Committee when she has mocked the killing of little children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, when she has mocked the killing of teenagers in high school at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school -- what could they be thinking?" Pelosi asked Thursday. "Or is thinking too generous a word for what they might be doing? It's absolutely appalling, and I think the focus has to be on the Republican leadership of this House of Representatives for the disregard they have for the death of those children."

The Department of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System bulletin today due to a ‘heightened threat environment across the United States.’ Though the department says it does not have ‘any information to indicate a specific, credible plot,’ it does warn that ‘ideologically-motivated violent extremists’ could pose a potential threat to the U.S. in the coming weeks.

The warning states that potential domestic violent extremists could be motivated by any number of ‘perceived grievances.’ It specifically cites the deadly January 6 attack on the United States Capitol—and the violent rhetoric and election denialism that stoked it—as a cause of concern, saying that some domestic violent extremists may ‘be emboldened’ by the attack to ‘target elected official and government facilities.’

Quote
Democrats and legal experts have accused Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of seeking to intimidate GOP colleague Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler in a tweet in which Greene warned that millions of Donald Trump loyalists "are watching" her.

In a tweet, Georgia representative Greene attacked Herrera Beutler after she released a statement Friday saying that she could corroborate details of a report claiming that Trump has sided with rioters in a call with House minority leader Kevin McCarthy on January 6 as they tore through the Capitol.

The latest evidence briefly promised to disrupt the impeachment trial as it drew to a close. At first, House impeachment managers decided to call Herrera Beutler as a witness, then reversed the decision and instead admitted her testimony to the record.

Greene sent the tweet when it appeared likely that Herrera Beutler would be subpoenaed as a witness.

"First voting to impeach innocent President Trump, then yapping to the press and throwing @GOPLeader under the bus," tweeted Greene about Herrera Beutler Saturday. "And now a tool as a witness for the Democrats running the circus trial. The Trump loyal 75 million are watching."

Why is Greene still alive?

Granted anonymity to discuss internal politics, a GOP senator said it would be surprising to see more than six Republicans vote to convict but conceded everyone was blindly guessing at the vote count: "That's the nature of surprises."

Judging from what many U.S. citizens are talking about most of them do not realize, or even care, that the GOP has officially endorsed 'coup' and insurrection as a strategy for their party moving forward. This article proves it more than any other. Most Republicans are literally asking themselves how any of their colleagues could have even considered a conviction vote against Trump....

The U.S.A. and "white" supremacy are very much products of Western civilization, whereas the original America is not. Perhaps it's finally time for the 'true' Americans to finish the revolution they started against Western civilization in 1775?

Clarence Thomas can now also be officially considered part of the coup:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/dissent-justice-thomas-election-case-223407739.html

Quote
WASHINGTON – A blistering dissent in a high-profile election case written by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas prompted blowback Monday from Democrats who accused one of the court's most conservative members of embracing baseless claims of voter fraud promoted by President Donald Trump after the November election.
...
he raised questions about the reliability of mail-in voting that echoed many of the same arguments Trump raised in the weeks before and after the election.
...
Critics said Thomas' argument played into an idea espoused by Trump and others that fraud could have existed, even though the former president did not ever prove it.
...
"None of us should be shocked that Justice Thomas would write an out of touch, radical & unhinged opinion," the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Jaime Harrison, tweeted. "He and his wife showed us who they were a very long time ago."

Harrison's response was in part a reference to a report this month that Virginia Thomas, a conservative activist and the justice's wife, apologized to her husband’s former law clerks for posting a series of messages supporting Trump's claims of fraud. Thomas has declined to comment on his wife's apology or her earlier pro-Trump statements.
...
"You don’t have to be a prosecutor to understand how ludicrous Justice Thomas’ dissent is," tweeted Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., noting a conspiracy theory raised by some of Trump's attorneys that Venezuelan socialists hand a hand in helping Biden win.

"Fraud requires a perpetrator; that’s why Trump folks came up with Hugo Chavez," Lieu said. "Otherwise you’re saying over 7 million uncoordinated voters figured out how to commit voter fraud undetected."

Sen. Mitt Romney has not been shy about sharing his distaste for President Trump, going so far as to be the only GOP senator to vote to convict Trump in both impeachment trials. However, in recent remarks to the NY Times, Romney acknowledged the strong grip Trump continues to have over his party, saying he expects the 45th president to win the GOP nomination ‘in a landslide’ in 2024, should he run.

Should Trump run again, he won’t have Romney’s support. ‘I would not be voting for President Trump again,’ Romney told the NYT’s Andrew Ross Sorkin. ‘I haven’t voted for him in the past. And I would probably be getting behind somebody who I thought more represented the tiny wing of the Republican Party that I represent.’

Militia Group May Be Plotting to Attack U.S. Capitol on Thursday, FBI Warns
Quote
Law enforcement warnings that a militia group may be plotting to attack the U.S. Capitol on Thursday raised tensions again in Washington and helped prompt the House to cancel plans to meet for votes.

“We have obtained intelligence that shows a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group on Thursday, March 4,” the U.S. Capitol Police said in a statement Wednesday. “We are taking the intelligence seriously.”

That alert followed a joint intelligence bulletin late Tuesday from the Homeland Security Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation about extremists discussing carrying out attacks at the Capitol from March 4 to March 6. Melissa Smislova, a senior Homeland Security official, told two Senate committees about the threat on Wednesday.

The police warning didn’t give specifics, citing the “sensitive nature of this information” that comes about two months after a Jan. 6 siege of the Capitol by extremist supporters of then-President Donald Trump. That attack led to at least five fatalities.

Two congressional aides said the House canceled plans to vote on Thursday and is scaling back other events at least in part because of the threat. The Senate still plans to meet.

Representative Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican, told CNN on Wednesday that Trump “has a responsibility” to defuse the threat by telling his supporters to “stand down.”

“This threat is credible,” McCaul said. “It’s real.”

The March 4 timing coincides with the date linked to conspiracy theories about it being the “true inauguration day.” Presidents were sworn in on that date until the 20th Amendment to the Constitution shifted the ceremony to Jan. 20, in 1933.

The warnings also come after Capitol Police and federal law enforcement came under severe criticism for not acting faster on intelligence that the Jan. 6 protests could turn violent.

The latest warnings caught many in Washington by surprise because they came a day after acting Sergeant at Arms Timothy Blodgett told lawmakers that Capitol Police had no indication groups would travel to Washington to protest or commit acts of violence.

However, Blodgett said there would be heightened security Thursday because of baseless conspiracies circulating among extremist groups.

Alaina Gertz, a spokeswoman for Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department, said that “MPD does not discuss operational tactics. However, we will continue to monitor and assess information in collaboration with our local and federal partners to ensure the public’s safety.”

In a sign of lingering tensions in the U.S. capital, about 5,000 National Guard troops remain deployed following the Jan. 6 riot. Pentagon officials say they are scheduled to depart late next week unless requested to stay on. In addition, the Capitol grounds remain ringed by tall, razor wire-topped fencing with limited access points, a perimeter that was established after the Jan. 6 attack.

The latest alerts follow warnings by U.S. national security officials, including FBI Director Christopher Wray, that domestic extremists pose the greatest terrorist threat to the U.S. and are intent on carrying out attacks, especially after the riot, which sought to disrupt the ratification of President Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

“The problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a long time now and it’s not going away anytime soon,” Wray said during a Senate hearing Tuesday. The FBI declined to comment on the new threat warning from the Capitol Police.

“The United States Capitol Police Department is aware of and prepared for any potential threats towards members of Congress or towards the Capitol complex,” according to the Capitol Police statement. “We have already made significant security upgrades to include establishing a physical structure and increasing manpower to ensure the protection of Congress, the public and our police officers.”

Lawmakers and congressional staffers are being asked to carry identification, report any threats or suspicious activity and keep emergency numbers on hand.

Zoe Lofgren has compiled a useful database:

https://lofgren.house.gov/socialreview

Quote
Foreword by Rep. Lofgren

On January 6, 2021, both chambers of Congress convened in a joint session for what should have been a demonstration of a fundamental feature of our democracy: the peaceful transition of power. Instead, domestic terrorists attacked the U.S. Capitol, and January 6th will now forever be remembered as one of the darkest days in our nation’s history.

I have deep concerns about the behavior of former President Trump and the actions he took which incited and encouraged the domestic terrorists who attacked the Capitol. I agree with the bipartisan and historic majorities in the House and Senate which concluded that it was both constitutional and necessary to impeach and convict former President Trump for those actions, including his false statements, and to disqualify him from holding future office. The Article of Impeachment expressly discussed the prohibition of Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution on any person who has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” the United States from “hold[ing] any office … under the United States.”

Like former President Trump, any elected Member of Congress who aided and abetted the insurrection or incited the attack seriously threatened our democratic government. They would have betrayed their oath of office and would be implicated in the same constitutional provision cited in the Article of Impeachment. That provision prohibits any person who has previously taken an oath as a member of Congress to support the Constitution but subsequently engaged in insurrection or rebellion from serving in Congress.

This is my fourteenth term representing most of the City of San Jose and Santa Clara County in Congress. I have been serving as a Member of the House Judiciary Committee since 1995, I served as Chair of the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct (now named the House Ethics Committee) from 2009 to 2011, and I am the current Chair of the Committee on House Administration. I also participated, either as a Member or as staff, in all four modern presidential impeachment proceedings. As a Member, I participated in three of the four proceedings in our nation’s history in which a President was impeached. I have participated in congressional proceedings to consider the removal of officials in all three branches of the federal government, including serving as an Impeachment Manager in the Senate trial for former President Trump’s first impeachment; serving as an Impeachment Manager in the Senate trial for former federal Judge G. Thomas Porteous, Jr., who was convicted and removed from office; and helping to lead the investigation of and subsequent debate in expulsion proceedings of former Representative James Traficant, the only Member of the House to be expelled in the last 40 years. In view of this experience, colleagues and constituents alike have asked my opinion about possible recourse for and appropriate action regarding Members’ involvement in the January 6th attempt to overthrow the lawful government of the United States.

Some have asked about the criteria related to expulsion where there are violations of the 14th Amendment provisions related to insurrection. Although scholars can disagree, from reading the Constitution, it appears that a two-thirds vote of the U.S. House of Representatives would be required, if it were determined that a Member(s) violated the 14th Amendment’s prohibition of the support of insurrection. In addition to the 14th Amendment, Congress has broad and express authority under Article I to “punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour.” More research on this question is warranted. Additionally, actions that incited, encouraged, and/or coordinated the attack on the Capitol – which among other things delayed Congress from completing its constitutional responsibilities with respect to the Electoral College – could also violate a number of criminal statutes, although the decision about whether to file such charges is outside the purview of Congress.

Any appropriate disciplinary action is a matter not only of the Constitution and law, but also of fact. Many of former President Trump’s false statements were made in very public settings. Had Members made similar public statements in the weeks and months before the January 6th attack?

Statements which are readily available in the public arena may be part of any consideration of Congress’ constitutional prerogatives and responsibilities. Accordingly, I asked my staff to take a quick look at public social media posts of Members who voted to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Below is the social media review they shared with me, and I am now sharing it with you.

Donald Trump will be presented with a framed copy of a resolution, passed by the Alabama Republican Party, declaring him as "one of the greatest and most effective" presidents in the history of the United States.

Perry Hooper Jr., a former state representative and a member of the state party’s executive committee, said:

"The resolution, basically, it just talks about the greatness of Donald J. Trump, how he made America great again, and I hope other states will follow suit."

A framed copy of the resolution was given to Trump at a reception at Mar-a-Lago, Florida, on Saturday evening.
...
Hooper said he would go a step further and say Trump was the best president ever.
...
The resolution signals massive support for Trump from the conservative and Republican Party base.

Trump won the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll in Florida, with attendees saying they would vote for him in 2024.

Hooper said he was speaking for many Americans who voted for the 45th president in 2020.

"We love him in Alabama, America loves him, and he got 75 million votes for a reason, and I'm speaking basically for 75 million people in America," he said.

Yes, 75 million is the number which must be exterminated before there will be peace again. No, none of these 75 million are American.

12 Republicans vote against honoring Capitol police for protecting Congress
Quote
House voted 413-12 to award congressional gold medals to all members of Capitol force for their efforts on 6 January
Quote
A dozen Republicans voted against a resolution honoring US Capitol police for their efforts to protect members of Congress during the insurrection on 6 January.

The House voted 413-12 on Wednesday to award congressional gold medals, Congress’s “highest expression of national appreciation”, to all members of the Capitol police force.

The Republicans who opposed this honor included Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Matt Gaetz of Florida and Thomas Massie of Kentucky. They and other opposing members said they had problems with the text of the legislation.

Massie told reporters he disagreed with the terms “insurrection” and “temple” in the legislation.

The resolution said: “On January 6, 2021, a mob of insurrectionists forced its way into the US Capitol building and congressional office buildings and engaged in acts of vandalism, looting, and violently attacked Capitol police officers.”

It also named the three officers who responded to the attack and died shortly after – Capitol police officers Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood and Metropolitan police department officer Jeffrey Smith – and said seven other people died and more than 140 law enforcement officers were injured.

“The desecration of the US Capitol, which is the temple of our American democracy, and the violence targeting Congress are horrors that will forever stain our nation’s history,” the bill said.

Louie Gohmert, a congressman from Texas, said in a statement that the text “does not honor anyone, but rather seeks to drive a narrative that isn’t substantiated by known facts”.

A police officer from Pennsylvania is reportedly divorcing his wife after she was photographed participating in the U.S. Capitol insurrection alongside another man.

Jennifer Heinl, 55, was photographed at the January 6 riot alongside Kenneth Grayson. Both have been charged for their alleged actions that day. According to Insider, Heinl told the FBI she did not enter the Capitol as the riot was unfolding, but FBI believes they have evidence to dispute that claim. Heinl is facing charges of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.

She's also facing the break up of her marriage. Police Detective Michael Heinl of the Shaler Township Police Department, near Pittsburgh, had reportedly filed for divorce from Heinl in February. It's also been reported that Detective Heinl supposedly urged his wife not to attend the rally in the first place. Said his department's police chief, per the Pittsburgh Post Gazette: “His wife was a part of that situation. He didn’t condone it. He didn’t ask her to go there. He wasn’t there. He was here working. She’s an adult. And I don’t think he had any part in her going there.'

When Trump’s Next Coup Happens, the Republican Party Will Fully Support It
Quote
Throughout the Trump era, Republican Party officials and its professional class have gone through a constant and frequently vicious internecine struggle, pitting the small, but well-placed, bloc of anti-Trump elites against an opposing bloc of genuine Trump cultists. Throughout, the balance of power has been held by Republicans who abhor Trump personally and consider him a net liability, but temper their disdain with complacency laced with contempt.

What they hate about Trump is his untrustworthiness on policy matters like trade and foreign policy, lack of professionalism, and irrepressible tendency to embarrass them by putting the party’s agenda in the crudest terms. They do not consider Trump any serious threat to the Republic — not during his presidency, and certainly not since January 20.

Understanding those beliefs is key to following the party through the ongoing purge of Liz Cheney. The party’s middle faction initially sympathized with Cheney’s anger at Trump for his reckless and cringe-inducing effort to goad a mob into storming the Capitol on January 6. Putting Mike Pence’s life in danger is not a stunt any of them take lightly. But now the balance of their anger has tilted against Cheney. She refuses to let this thing go, and she is putting the party’s messaging at risk.

The document that most clearly expresses the mainstream Republican view is a column by National Review’s Dan McLaughlin. To begin with, McLaughlin lays out the party Establishment’s view of the stakes: While the dispute is “dressed up as disagreements over issues and approaches,” it “is actually almost entirely about the personality and character of Donald J. Trump.” Trump is a boor and a sleaze, but there’s no larger principle at stake.

Next, McLaughlin insists that Trump’s embarrassing behavior is all behind them. “Cheney has made herself a symbol of inter-Republican resistance to Trump’s post-election temper tantrum, to his fables about a stolen election, and to his role in provoking the Capitol riot — all of which is fair to call out, but all of which is now in the past.” [Emphasis added.]

Of course, this very assumption is what Cheney contests. Her op-ed explicitly argues that Trump is laying the groundwork to undermine democracy going forward. The very first paragraph asserts, “There is good reason to believe that Trump’s language can provoke violence again. Trump is seeking to unravel critical elements of our constitutional structure that make democracy work — confidence in the result of elections and the rule of law.” Its headline says the party is “at a turning point.”

Right now, Trump is energetically spreading his lies, and succeeding in bringing the party’s base over to his side. Republicans are enacting voting restrictions nationwide premised on his lies, holding a sham “recount” in Arizona, and purging a slate of state and local officials who resisted Trump’s autogolpe.

Perhaps McLaughlin disagrees, but it’s telling that, rather than defend his disagreement, he simply assumes there is no danger going forward. Why is that?

Well, the answer can probably be deduced from this passage:
Quote
In order to continue representing the desires and interests of their voters, they would rather put the issue behind them and focus on the actual, current president and his actual, current agenda. Cheney writes in a Washington Post op-ed published Wednesday, “The question before us now is whether we will join Trump’s crusade to delegitimize and undo the legal outcome of the 2020 election, with all the consequences that might have.” But it is in no way in the interests of the Republican Party or its voters for this to be the question currently before the House or the party.
Quote
In the first sentence, McLaughlin asserts that Republicans should represent “the desires and interests of their voters.” In the last, he asserts “the
interests of the Republican Party” and “its voters” are not to question Trump’s crusade to delegitimize the election.

He is almost certainly right about the party’s interest. Contesting Biden’s election is a poor public-facing message for the GOP, which indeed has a stronger interest in changing the subject to issues that poll better. On the other hand, the communication by Trump and his cultists has not stopped and will not stop. They are laying the groundwork for another challenge to the democratic system with a more favorable response. The question is whether Cheney can answer their arguments, or whether the party’s leadership should stay silent and leave the field to Trump.

If and when Republicans mount their next effort to subvert an election, it will be in their interest to succeed, though it will not be in the country’s interest. But note that while Cheney’s argument is framed around the country’s interest, McLaughlin’s response is framed around the party’s interest. The reason he doesn’t even bother addressing Cheney’s concern about the ongoing danger of a Republican Party that refuses to accept defeat is that he does not see it as a danger to the party.

There is a long-standing belief on the right that Democratic Party victories are inherently fraudulent. They rely on massive levels of undetected fraud in Democratic-run cities teeming with lawlessness, and mobilize majorities who use their power to illegitimately redistribute wealth from its rightful owners to themselves.

The highbrow version of this belief has long been articulated in conservative organs such as National Review. Trump expressed a crude, lowbrow version, and employed crude, lowbrow tactics. Highbrow right-wing authoritarians look at their lowbrow cousins with contempt and embarrassment. The lowbrow authoritarians look at the highbrows as snobs and wimps. Ultimately, however, their shared beliefs outweigh their differences.

So when the next right-wing coup attempt takes place, backed by the overwhelming majority of Republican voters who believe Trump legitimately won in 2020, what will the mainstream Republicans do? The answer should already be clear. The next insurrection will be a Brooks Brothers riot.
https://nymag.com/intelligencer/article/trumps-next-coup-cheney-purge-riot-insurrection-democracy.html

Quote
The Brooks Brothers riot was a demonstration at a meeting of election canvassers in Miami-Dade County, Florida, on November 22, 2000, during a recount of votes made during the 2000 United States presidential election, with the goal of shutting down the recount. After demonstrations and acts of violence, local officials shut down the recount early.

The name referenced the protesters' corporate attire; described by Paul Gigot in an editorial for The Wall Street Journal as "50-year-old white lawyers with cell phones and Hermès ties," differentiating them from local citizens concerned about vote counting.[1] Many of the demonstrators were Republican staffers.[2] Both Roger Stone and Brad Blakeman take credit for managing the riot from a command post, although their accounts contradict each other.[2] Republican New York Representative John E. Sweeney[3] gave the signal that started the riot, telling an aide to "shut it down".[4][5]

Reminder that far-right operative Roger Stone was the main organizer of the Brooks Brothers riot, which successfully disrupted the vote recount enough to allow the Supreme Court to declare Bush as the president, even though subsequent vote recounts demonstrated he actually lost in Florida. So I guess technically the 2000 election was the first Red Coup.

Quote
Within two hours after the event, the canvassing board unanimously voted to shut down the count, in part due to perceptions that the process was not open or fair, and in part because the court-mandated deadline had become impossible to meet, due to the interference.[13][14]

The same **** they said during the 2020 recounts:
Quote
Sweeney defended his actions, arguing that his aim was not to stop the hand recount, but to restore the process to public view.[7] Other Bush supporters acknowledged they hoped to end the recount. "We were trying to stop the recount; Bush had already won," said Evilio Cepero, a reporter for WAQI, an influential Spanish talk radio station in Miami. "We were urging people to come downtown and support and protest this injustice." A Republican lawyer commented, "People were pounding on the doors, but they had an absolute right to get in."[13]


During the 2016 and 2020 elections, Stone once again tried to disrupt vote recounts and cast doubt on the outcome of the election:
Quote
But while Stop the Steal may sound like a new 2020 political slogan to many, it did not emerge organically over widespread concerns about voting fraud in President Donald Trump's race against Joe Biden. It has been in the works for years.
Its origin traces to Roger Stone, a veteran Republican operative and self-described "dirty trickster" whose 40-month prison sentence for seven felonies was cut short by Trump's commutation in July.

Stone's political action committee launched a "Stop the Steal" website in 2016 to fundraise ahead of that election, asking for $10,000 donations by saying, "If this election is close, THEY WILL STEAL IT."
https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/13/business/stop-the-steal-disinformation-campaign-invs/index.html

Stone helped do Trump's dirty work to aid him in the 2016 election, being criminally convicted for it:
Quote
The FBI arrested Stone in January 2019 on charges that he misled the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee in 2017 about his efforts to learn of plans by WikiLeaks to release emails hacked from the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. A federal jury in November found Stone guilty of lying to Congress by falsely claiming that he never asked anyone to contact WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange about the emails and that he never spoke to anyone in the Trump campaign about the efforts. Prosecutors said Stone asked a radio talk show host, Randy Credico, to contact Assange and pass messages back and forth.
https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/justice-department/trump-associate-roger-stone-sentenced-3-years-4-months-prison-n1138516/

Stone also worked closely with insurrection-organizer Ali Alexander:
Quote
In a helpful moment of clarity, the emcee for the evening, Stone associate and fellow convicted felon Ali Alexander (formerly Ali Akbar), a driving force behind the events that led to the attack the following afternoon, noted that "It was Roger Stone who coined the term first: Stop the Steal."

Stone did more than coin the term. He registered it with the federal government as a political nonprofit more than four years earlier, in 2016, and appears to have a hand in its successor, which was created less than a month before the 2020 election.

But while Alexander went on to claim to be the "father of the movement," that too traces to Stone, who had organized not just the 2016 effort, but another one two years later. All of this traces back deep in Republican dirty-trick history, all the way to the "Brooks Brothers Riot" orchestrated by Stone to interfere with the 2000 Miami-Dade County recount and help make George W. Bush president.

When Stone, escorted by bodyguards from the Oath Keepers anti-government militia group, delivered the keynote speech at the Freedom Plaza rally on Jan. 5, after showing off his dance moves, in his pinstripe suit and fedora hat, to a hip-hop remix of a song honoring his innocence, he made clear that Alexander had only "revived the Stop the Steal movement." In other words, all of this was, at its root, a Roger Stone production.

It appears that Stone bears as much responsibility as anyone — and quite a bit more than most — for the deadly riot that unfolded the next day, though the extent of his influence has not yet come into public focus.

Quote
A Colorado man who allegedly participated in the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol is now accused of shooting a mountain lion – after a judge warned him he is not allowed to possess illegal firearms.

Patrick Montgomery was charged in January with illegally entering the Capitol and disorderly conduct during the riots, among other things, according to court documents.

Since his arrest, Montgomery has been on pre-trial release, but according to court documents, he has violated his release conditions, and prosecutors are seeking to revoke it.

In February, he was was ordered, among other things, "not [to] violate federal, state, or local law while on release," "do not commit any Federal or State crimes," and "do not possess illegal firearms," according to the documents.

Earlier this month, FBI Task Force Officer Michael Timmerman learned that Montgomery used a handgun to shoot a mountain lion at a Colorado Parks and Wildlife park in March.

"Montgomery is a convicted felon and is prohibited by law to carry a firearm, including a handgun," the documents state.

(https://trueleft.createaforum.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2F%5Bimg%5Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fs.yimg.com%2Fny%2Fapi%2Fres%2F1.2%2F_ub_48ENTMLWsaNCbTws_w--%2FYXBwaWQ9aGlnaGxhbmRlcjt3PTcwNTtoPTk0Ny40NzEwOTgyNjU4OTY7Y2Y9d2VicA--%2Fhttps%3A%2F%2Fs.yimg.com%2Fuu%2Fapi%2Fres%2F1.2%2FqbxvdStpD6UMCMTUbCCzhw--%7EB%2FaD05MzA7dz02OTI7YXBwaWQ9eXRhY2h5b24-%2Fhttps%3A%2F%2Fmedia.zenfs.com%2Fen%2Fcbs_news_897%2F5946e6a80bb0a1205faab1bef52f8aa4&hash=b2be9a6c2d6170205a7fa599defcf09a642761cd)[/img]
...
This is not the first time Montgomery is accused of violating local laws while on pre-trial release. Earlier this year, he admitted to the parks officer that he and his dogs followed a bobcat for approximately 11 miles before his dogs killed the bobcat, which violates local hunting rules.

"Montgomery has no respect for the Court's orders, just like he had no respect for law enforcement at the Capitol on January 6," Acting United States Attorney Channing Phillips writes in the court documents.

Which is why they should all have been shot on the spot inside the Capitol.

It's OK to be Steve Bannon:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/indictment-against-former-trump-advisor-202852481.html

Quote
Indictment against former Trump advisor Bannon is dismissed

NEW YORK (AP) — An indictment against Steve Bannon was dismissed Tuesday over the objection of prosecutors who said it should stand despite ex-President Donald Trump's decision to pardon his former chief strategist.

The dismissal came in a written ruling by U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres, who called it the “proper course.”
...
Bannon’s attorney, Robert Costello, said in an email: “We are delighted that the Judge reached the right conclusion. Winning always beats the alternative. An unconditional pardon is final and it merits the finality of a dismissed indictment.”
...
After Trump's last-minute decision to pardon Bannon before leaving office in January, prosecutors asked the judge to let the indictment against him stand, saying it could leave ill effects on Bannon even without a conviction.

They wrote that dismissing the indictment “could have a broader effect than the pardon itself, among other things potentially relieving Bannon of certain consequences not covered by the pardon.”

“Arresting low-level operatives is merely a speed bump, not a roadblock. In order to really tackle terrorism — and this time domestically — you’ve got to attack and dismantle the command-and-control element of a terrorist group. And unfortunately, and I know this is painful to hear, that may mean people sitting in Congress right now, people in and around the former president. That’s how you do this. Otherwise recruitment, inciting, and cult-like leadership continues to recruit people to violence.”

Alex Jones May Get Trump Locked Up By Claiming White House Coordinated 1/6 Attack With Him

Jones said, “Then the White House told me three days before, we’re going to have you lead the march. The Secret Service before Trump finishes thirty minutes before. We’ll lead you to a point, take you out of the front row, and lead you to the place where we want you to start the march, and then Trump will tell people go and I will meet you at the Capitol.”
...
There are independent reports that appear to support some of Jones’s claim as Trump White House officials were in contact and coordinating with the domestic terrorists who attacked the Capitol before January 6.

If Jones’s story is true, and given his relationship with the former president, there are strong indicators that it could be, Trump and his administration tried to overthrow the government on January 6, 2021.

If substantiated, the story could provide enough evidence to lock up members of the Trump administration, Alex Jones, and Donald Trump.

The oversight panel said a cache of more than 200 pages of newly released emails from Justice Department officials and White House staff sheds new light on how Trump tried to undermine the results of the 2020 election and advance unsupported voter fraud claims with the “apparent goal” of keeping himself in power.

The documents show, among other allegations, that Trump in December pressed the Justice Department to file a Supreme Court lawsuit to nullify the election, the committee said.

The dump of new materials came hours before the Oversight Committee was set to hold its second hearing on the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol invasion.

“These documents show that President Trump tried to corrupt our nation’s chief law enforcement agency in a brazen attempt to overturn an election that he lost,” Oversight Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., said in a press release.

A judge told a Capitol riot suspect to get rid of his guns. The feds say he bought 34 more.

Federal prosecutors say an ex-cop and Capitol riot suspect violated his pre-trial release conditions by buying 34 guns, and possessing a loaded M4 carbine and partially assembled pipe bomb at his home, according to court documents.

Thomas Robertson, ex-officer of the Rocky Mount Police Department in Virginia, is one of the 545 people that have been arrested and charged in connection to the January 6 insurrection so far. The Washington Post was first to report the latest court filing.

Robertson, who faces four federal charges, was released from jail in January. A judge agreed to release him pending trial, but one of the conditions was that he "refrain from possessing a firearm, destructive device, or other dangerous weapon," court documents said.

But just four days after Robertson's release, authorities discovered eight firearms, including a Hawken Rifle and Smith and Wesson, at his Virginia residence, according to a motion to revoke Robertson's release order.

Why would someone like this be released from jail in the first place?

Have you ever sat around wondering, “What does a white man in America have to do to stay locked up?” Well, if you have, you can, unfortunately, cross “be convicted of attempted murder, join a white supremacist prison gang and then later take part in an attempt to overthrow the U.S. government” off of your list of potential offenses that will put a white man under the jail.

As it turns out, a man who fits the above description was allowed on Monday to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge related to the Jan. 6 riot in the U.S. Capitol and was sentenced to six months in jail with credit for time served on all but two days of that sentence.
...
According to CNN, other Capitol rioters who pleaded guilty to the same charges as Curzio are likely to be treated even more leniently.

From CNN:

    It’s highly unlikely that other rioters who plead guilty to the same charge will receive the full six-month maximum sentence. Curzio’s case is unique, given his attempted murder conviction, and the fact that he has been incarcerated while awaiting trial since his arrest on January 14.

    Curzio, 35, pleaded guilty to one count of unlawfully protesting inside the Capitol and agreed to pay $500 to repair damages to the complex. This has become the standard plea deal that the Justice Department has offered to many Capitol rioters who didn’t act violently.


That $500 Curzio agreed to pay is actually just another instance of him receiving a light penalty for his crimes, seeing as the charges he pleaded guilty to carry a maximum fine of $5,000, which prosecutors decided to waive, according to News 6.

Is it egregious that Curzio has been treated with kid gloves like this? Sure it is. It sounds about white, though.

The judges should be considered part of the coup.

New book shows top US generals planned ways to stop Trump in case of coup

The top US military officer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley, was so shaken that then-President Donald Trump and his allies might attempt a coup or take other dangerous or illegal measures after the November election that Milley and other top officials informally planned for different ways to stop Trump, according to excerpts of an upcoming book obtained by CNN.

Kelly Armstrong did not vote in favor of the coup, but he was one of 7 Republicans who signed a statement supporting Trump's bogus voter fraud narrative nevertheless. He voted against Trump's 2nd impeachment.

Rodney Davis did not support the Coup Vote, but did not support Trump's 2nd impeachment. Davis was, however, one of 35 Republican Representatives who supported the establishment of the January 6th Commission. So maybe he alone can be tolerated...maybe?
https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/19/politics/house-republicans-january-6-commission/index.html


Well, Davis isn't really tolerable when Trump was impeached for inciting the very insurrection that the committee is tasked to investigate... Every Republican who attempted to shield Trump and their party from consequences is an accomplice to all these crimes...

Less than a year after a pro-Trump mob stormed the US Capitol, nearly half of Republican voters (47%) say that "a time will come when patriotic Americans have to take the law into their own hands," per a new nationwide survey by George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs.

Only about 29% of Americans agreed with this statement on some level, the poll found, including just 9% of Democrats. And 49% said they disagree or strongly disagree.

The poll also found that a majority of Republicans (55%) say "the traditional American way of life is disappearing so fast we may have to use force to save it." About 15% of Democrats agreed with this statement, but more Americans disagreed (46%) than agreed (34%).

More Republicans (27%) than Democrats (18%) said that "strong leaders sometimes have to bend the rules in order to get things done."
...
More than one quarter of Americans qualify as having right-wing authoritarian political beliefs, according to polling from Morning Consult released in late June.

As I have been saying, what has happened so far is just the beginning. Reaching anything like the end requires at least this same one quarter of the US population to be physically exterminated.

The article title should read "Why is terrorist Lauren Boebert not in prison yet?"

The language used in the bill forming the January 6th Commission established that the events of January 6th were terrorism, i.e. all the Republicans who participated in the coup (or who have given aid and comfort to the participants by downplaying their actions and pushing conspiracy theories) are themselves terrorists. (This also means all the Democrats who are engaging in a coverup by refusing to arrest the Republican participants are themselves terrorists).

Quote
Why did Lauren Boebert lead a late-night Capitol tour three weeks before Jan. 6?
Before she became a member of Congress, Boebert led a family tour that appeared to break all the Capitol's rules
[...]
On the night of Dec. 12, 2020, the day of the first Stop the Steal rally in Washington and three weeks ahead of the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, several guests of then-Rep.-elect Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., received an exclusive after-hours tour of the Capitol building from the far-right firebrand.

There are several unanswered questions about this visit, which appears to have violated normal Capitol protocol in various ways. It's not clear who authorized it, since Boebert was not yet a member of Congress and had no official standing in D.C. It's perhaps even stranger that it occurred on a Saturday night, when the Capitol complex is closed.
[...]
As mentioned above, the rules for observation deck tours stipulate that a member of Congress and an official guide must accompany each group that climbs the Capitol Dome. There's no indication that either a member or a guide was present on this occasion.
[...]
After Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and other lawmakers accused Boebert of "involvement in instigating and aiding the violent riot at the Capitol Building" after Jan. 6, Boebert responded by saying that she hadn't given tours to anyone but her family during the 117th Congress, which began on Jan. 3, the day she was sworn in as a member.

Her choice of words was notably specific, and potentially significant: "I haven't given a tour of the U.S. Capitol in the 117th Congress to anyone but family," she said, specifically not addressing the unauthorized tour she seems to have given during the 116th Congress.

Ted Cruz under fire for calling arrests of Capitol rioters ‘persecution’

Mr Cruz's views on prosecution of protesters has been somewhat inconsistent. In June, Mr Cruz and Senator Tommy Tuberville sent a letter to US Attorney General Merrick Garland complaining that Capitol rioters are facing harsher treatment than people who protested during the George Floyd demonstrations in 2020.

“DOJ’s apparent unwillingness to punish these individuals who allegedly committed crimes during the spring and summer 2020 protests stands in stark contrast to the harsher treatment of the individuals charged in connection with the January 6, 2021 breach of the US Capitol,” the duo wrote.

Calls for violence online similar to before January 6 Capitol attack, DHS Intel chief says
Quote
Online extremist rhetoric is strikingly similar to the buildup to the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, with increasing calls for violence linked to conspiracy theories and false narratives, Homeland Security Intelligence chief John Cohen said in an interview with CNN.

There have been online comments such as “the system is broken,” “take action into their own hands” and “bring out the gallows,” Cohen said, offering as paraphrases of what has been observed.

While the conspiracy theories vary, there has been an ongoing narrative focused on the false premise that the presidential election was illegitimate, Cohen said. That narrative is paired with an increase in calls for violence to rectify the situation.

His comments come as the Department of Homeland Security issued a new terrorism bulletin warning the public about increasingly complex and volatile threats and days after DHS alerted state and local authorities to an increase in calls for violence online tied to election-related conspiracy theories.

“It’s very similar to the stuff we saw prior to January 6,” said Cohen, the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis senior official performing the duties of the under secretary. But the comments have stopped short of specific dates and threats, he noted.

Several swirling conspiracy theories point to a process that will change the results of the election.

“Concern from a law enforcement perspective is at a certain point in time, all of the conspiracy theories that point to a change occurring through process are going to sort of wear out. And the question is going to be, are people going to try to resort to violence, in or in furtherance of, that false narrative?” Cohen said.

There's no evidence to back up this claim - but there is plenty of evidence to the contrary. Individuals like Powell are becoming more extreme in their conspiracies as they continue to get proven wrong, as Farron Cousins explains.

Secret Service Warned Capitol Police About Dangerous Trump Fans Day Before Riot
Quote
New emails have revealed that the Secret Service shared information with the Capitol Police about potential violence from Trump supporters on January 6th. The only problem is that this warning came just one day before the Capitol Riot, on January 5th. This was hardly enough time for the police to properly prepare, but it gives us a good picture of the complete breakdown in communications at the highest levels. Farron Cousins discusses this.

It's taken a turn for the worse. The FBI is now covering up the coup, demonstrating they are complicit.

Quote
WASHINGTON, Aug 20 (Reuters) - The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.

Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations.

"Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases," said a former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. "Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages."
https://www.reuters.com/world/us/exclusive-fbi-finds-scant-evidence-us-capitol-attack-was-coordinated-sources-2021-08-20/


This is the laziest coverup ever. They arrested the rioters who just wandered into the Capitol with no plan or organization, but haven't arrested any of the politicians or far-right activists who spent months PUBLICLY ORGANIZING the f*cking insurrection. Without them the insurrection never would have happened. These people wouldn't have come to DC, they wouldn't have gone to the Capitol, and they wouldn't have broken in, murdered cops, and attempted to attack politicians.

As early as 7 days after the insurrection, journalists confirmed that at least 3 members of Congress worked directly with a far-right organizer to coordinate the insurrection. This isn't even touching all the other evidence (such as the fact that military-coup-advocate General Michael Flynn's brother--General Charles Flynn--was one of the generals who delayed the National Guard on January 6th!!!). Ffs, look at all the headlines in the posts above! This was a massive, organized, inside job.

Quote
Weeks before a mob of President Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, right-wing activist Ali Alexander told his followers he was planning something big for Jan. 6.

Alexander, who organized the “Stop the Steal” movement, said he hatched the plan — coinciding with Congress’s vote to certify the electoral college votes — alongside three GOP lawmakers: Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Mo Brooks (Ala.) and Paul A. Gosar (Ariz.), all hard-line Trump supporters.

“We four schemed up of putting maximum pressure on Congress while they were voting,” Alexander said in a since-deleted video on Periscope highlighted by the Project on Government Oversight, an investigative nonprofit.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/01/13/ali-alexander-capitol-biggs-gosar/

If you watch the video of Gosar speaking on January 6th immediately before the Capitol was breached and Congress was forced to stop their session, his body language was extremely nervous. He knew what was coming. He knew the severity of his treasonous acts. It was all planned. (It starts at 54:13 and he gets more nervous as he continues):

Seven U.S. Capitol Police officers filed a federal lawsuit Thursday accusing former President Donald Trump, far-right “violent extremist groups” and others of being directly responsible for the deadly invasion of the Capitol on Jan. 6.

The lawsuit was filed against more than two dozen people and entities, including Republican operative Roger Stone and the far-right Proud Boys group. It alleges the defendants conspired to stop Congress from confirming President Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory “through the use of force, intimidation, and threats.”

We thought Republicans couldn't have been any more bold in their blatant coverup of the coup. Now we know that even a Democrat-controlled Justice Department is willing to coverup the coup.

This is the beginning of the end of the US. I hope we are all making preparations to defend ourselves in the chaos that will unfold within the next few years. This coverup is the green light for Republicans to go full steam ahead with their next coup attempt. Even if the January 6th Committee does its job and investigates the politicians who organized the coup, if the Justice Department is already pushing the narrative that "there was no insurrection", it is too late to avert the next one.

Trump's Groups Paid MILLIONS To Organizers Of January 6th Rally
Quote
A new report has revealed that fundraising groups run by the Trump campaign ended up paying millions of dollars to the same people and groups who set up the "Stop the Steal" rally on January 6th. This happened mostly due to the fact that there was so much overlap between Trump's fundraising arms and the rally itself, NOT because Trump's group actually paid for the rally. But there are some other bombshells in the report that show that organizers knew more than we thought about the potential for violence. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins discusses this.

Trump Funding Network Paid $4.3 Million To People, Firms Who Set Up Jan. 6 Rally: Report

Former President Donald Trump’s political fundraising operation reported has paid more than $4.3 million since the start of the 2020 election cycle to individuals and firms that organized the Jan. 6 rally that preceded the attack on the U.S. Capitol, according to a report published Monday by the government watchdog group OpenSecrets.

The full extent of the Trump-linked funding and organizational support for the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally is not yet fully known, but the report reveals a powerful push funded by Trump backers to deny the results of the presidential election. And more may be discovered soon as the House select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection begins a deep dive to uncover the players behind the day’s events, their activities and those who funded them.

The committee last week demanded a trove of materials linked to the Capitol attack, including social media messages, Republican lawmakers’ phone records, and information from the Trump White House and executive agencies, including the Department of Justice and the FBI.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed on Tuesday that any telecommunications company that complies with a request to hand over Republicans' messages to the January 6 commission would be "shut down."

On Friday, the group asked social-media companies to turn over records related to the riot. On Monday, it asked 35 social-media and telecommunications companies to "preserve" records from a list of Republicans in Congress, former President Donald Trump, and Trump's family.

"If members of Congress can have their personal cellphone data exposed ... just to hurt us politically in the next election, then we are going into a dangerous place in this country," she said.

If 147 Republican members of Congress attempt to overthrow the government just to win an election, the FBI covers it up, and the Democrats basically turn a blind eye, then we are going into a dangerous place in this country...

Of course, its not just Greene, the party leadership endorses this threat:

Quote
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Tuesday that Republicans “will not forget” if telecommunications companies turn phone and email records over to the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
[...]
McCarthy did not cite which law prohibits telecommunications companies from complying with the committee’s request.

If companies still choose to violate federal law, a Republican majority will not forget and will stand with Americans to hold them fully accountable under the law,” he said.

What other mandate or organizational culture could exist within the FBI, other than "whiteness", that would make the FBI behave in this way?

According to the U.S. government it does not discriminate due to "race" (arguably it doesn't even understand "race"), so I am always hesitant to make general statements about a U.S. government institution over what could just be rogue elements in such an institution subverting that body to their own aims, but this is really looking like the entire FBI is in fact protecting "white" insurrectionists.

Top investigator Adam Schiff says the committee plans to go “straight to subpoenas” for resistant witnesses. This comes as a new Reuters report finds the majority of Republican candidates running in races for the job of overseeing elections are in denial about Trump’s election loss. MSNBC’s Ari Melber breaks it down with The Nation’s Elie Mystal and The New York.

Steve Bannon Calls For 'Shock Troops' To 'Deconstruct' State As GOP Takes Oval Office

Donald Trump’s former White House strategist Steve Bannon on Saturday evoked a dystopian future when he called for “shock troops” to quickly “deconstruct” the state as soon as a Republican takes the Oval Office again.

Bannon made the chilling comments in a phone interview on NBC News after it reported that he had met Wednesday with the party faithful to urge them to be prepared to “reconfigure the government” with a Republican leader.

“If you’re going to take over the administrative state and deconstruct it, then you have to have shock troops prepared to take it over immediately,” Bannon told NBC. “I gave ’em fire and brimstone.”

Bannon, who ran Trump’s 2016 campaign, said the former president’s agenda packing the government with loyalists was delayed because he couldn’t move quickly enough to fill some 4,000 posts.

Bannon spoke at the Capitol Hill Club Wednesday at the invitation of a new organization called the Association of Republican Presidential Appointees, according to NBC. The group was formed as a resource for future GOP officials to tap into to quickly fill federal jobs.

Bannon told NBC that he wants to see “pre-trained teams ready to jump into federal agencies” when the next Republican president takes office.

“We’re going to have a sweeping victory in 2022, and that’s just the preamble to a sweeping victory in 2024, and this time we’re going to be ready — and have a MAGA perspective, MAGA policies, not the standard Republican policies,” he said, referring to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

Bannon was one of four close Trump associates subpoenaed earlier this week to appear before the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection. Investigators said Bannon urged Trump to focus efforts to return to the White House on the Jan. 6 action. He rallied his listeners on his “War Room” broadcast that “all hell is going to break out” that day.

Bannon admitted last week on his podcast that he told Trump before the insurrection: “You need to kill this [Biden] administration in its crib.” That led Harvard constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe to wonder why the Department of Justice hadn’t convened a grand jury to consider sedition charges against Bannon.

Biden declines Trump request to withhold White House records from Jan. 6 committee
Quote
The White House is authorizing the National Archives to turn over an initial set of documents related to Trump’s activities on Jan. 6.
Quote
WASHINGTON — The White House on Friday formally blocked an attempt by former President Donald Trump to withhold documents from Congress related to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, setting up a legal showdown between the current and former presidents over executive privilege.

In a letter to the National Archives obtained by NBC News, White House Counsel Dana Remus rejected an attempt by Trump’s attorneys to withhold documents requested by the House Select Committee regarding the then-president’s activities on Jan. 6, writing that “President Biden has determined that an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interests of the United States, and therefore is not justified as to any of the documents.”

“These are unique and extraordinary circumstances,” Remus added. “Congress is examining an assault on our Constitution and democratic institutions provoked and fanned by those sworn to protect them, and the conduct under investigation extends far beyond typical deliberations concerning the proper discharge of the President’s constitutional responsibilities. The constitutional protections of executive privilege should not be used to shield, from Congress or the public, information that reflects a clear and apparent effort to subvert the Constitution itself.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki had telegraphed the move two weeks ago, saying President Joe Biden had already concluded that it would not be appropriate to assert executive privilege related to Jan. 6 requests. But White House officials added that they had not yet done so related to requests from the Select Committee, and would make any determinations on a case-by-case basis.

The White House now is authorizing the National Archives to turn over an initial batch of documents that fell under a broad category requested by the committee, covering Trump’s actions and communications on Jan. 6, including his rally at The Ellipse on White House grounds, and subsequent meetings and communications throughout the day.

That request sought everything from Twitter messages, phone and visitor logs, and any videos and photos of events he participated in. It also included documents and communications related to then-Vice President Mike Pence’s movements and security, and broadly any other documents referring to the rally at The Ellipse and the subsequent violent riot at the Capitol, as well as to planning around the ceremonial event of counting of electoral votes during a joint session of Congress.

According to a source familiar with the matter, the National Archives immediately began scouring records in its possession for items responsive to the committee’s request issued in August. It has been producing relevant documents both to Trump’s legal representatives and the Biden White House on a regular basis since then. The specific batch of documents in question were initially produced to both parties on Sept. 8.

A White House official could not characterize what specific documents are included in that set, beyond saying that they will shed light on certain events within the White House on Jan. 6. They said Trump’s representatives concluded that executive privilege should be asserted on some, but not all of the documents. But Biden has concluded privilege does not pertain to any of the records.

Remus says in her letter that the White House is continuing to review other materials the archives have provided since then, and will respond “at an appropriate time.”

Trump, in a lengthy statement, sharply criticized the probe and accused Democrats of attempting "to use Congress to persecute their political opponents."

https://www.salon.com/2021/10/12/black-flag-understanding-the-trumpists-latest-threatening-symbol/

Quote
In one troubling new development, Trump supporters have begun flying all-black American flags, in an implicit threat to harm or kill their opponents — meaning nonwhite people, "socialist liberals," Muslims, vaccinated people and others deemed to be "enemies" of "real America." As media critic Eric Boehlert recently noted, the liberal opinion site Living Blue in Texas is sounding the alarm about the specific meaning of the black flag and the Republican-fascists support for terrorism and other political violence. That post, "Are Your Republican Neighbors Planning on Killing You?", merits lengthy quotation:

It didn't take long to find hundreds of videos where these Trumpers and so-called patriots were hanging black American flags. ...

Black American flags are the flags that mean "no quarter shall be given." They are the opposite of the white flag of surrender.

According to the people on TikTok and the Sun (British tabloid), the black American flag originated in the civil war and was flown by the Confederates.

It means that they will not surrender, will not take prisoners, and are willing to die for their cause. It means they will execute their enemies.


Who are their enemies? Pretty much any non-Conservative. You know, Democrats, Liberals, LGBTQ, BIPOC, and the vaccinated. ...

So, we're the enemy, and they're openly professing to want to execute us.

So, are we willing to execute them first? If not, we will lose. It is that simple.

Quote
Public opinion polls and other research have repeatedly shown that millions of Republican voters and Trump followers would support the use of violence to remove Joe Biden from office because of the "Big Lie" and their belief that that he is not a legitimate president. Similarly, a large proportion of Republicans believe that the rioters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 were "patriots" whose use of violence was justified.

And a new poll from the University of Virginia's Center for Politics even suggests that more than 50 percent of Trump supporters want "red states" to secede from the Union. Republican elected officials and other right-wing opinion leaders have continued to escalate their threats of political violence against Democrats and other targeted groups.
...
As Hussein Ibish warned in a recent article in the Atlantic, "The cancer of political violence is not an endemic American disease. At the moment, it is a Republican disease. No one but Republicans themselves can cure it. Until they do, the violence of the right is only going to keep swelling and crashing.

The line in bold is possibly the most stupid advice I have ever heard. Why would they want to cure it, given that it is making them stronger? So, if they refuse to cure it, do we just let them do what they want until they win? Or do we cure it by finding the will to kill them? The truth is the exact opposite: only WE can cure it, and the way to cure it is by destroying all 75 million infected.

While Republicans failed to steal the Presidential election, it looks like they (legally) stole a senate seat from Arizona. This is also evidence that the (successful) Republican self-coup which usurped the Senate in 2016 is still ongoing, just as I warned.

Quote
Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat, received the maximum donation allowed by law by several longtime GOP donors, according to a campaign fundraising report filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission.

According to the FEC data, first reported by Mother Jones, Sinema raised $1.1 million between July and September this year, about the same amount she raised in previous fundraising cycles, according to the report, despite growing frustration among Arizona Democrats.

Included in the FEC disclosure are several GOP donors who have previously supported efforts to elect former President Donald Trump and to help Republicans get the majority in the Senate.

https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2021/10/sinema-gop-donors-money-budget-republican-megadonors/


The question is, how long will the Democratic party allow a known Republican operative remain in their party? If they kick her out, she will just join the Republicans and give them a majority, so the 2022 election for the Senate will be critical.

Most senate seats up for reelection are in red states, so there is a potential to get an actual blue majority.


On a side note, it would be great if the US didn't face an existential threat every 2 goddamn years...

Meanwhile, a "black" woman got sentenced to FIVE YEARS in prison for casting a provisional ballot which was later found to be invalid. Not using fraudulent information to cast a 'real' ballot, but using real information to cast a provisional ballot!

Attempt to overthrow the government = 3 months in prison. A poll worker allows you to vote = 5 years in prison.

On the way, she picked up her niece Joanna, who was also going to vote. Crystal stood in line and gave her name and ID to the poll worker. He told her she wasn’t on the list of registered voters, but if she wanted, she could fill out a provisional ballot.

“He said that if I’m in the right place, my vote would count. If I’m not, it wouldn’t.”

Crystal had lived in the same house for years and didn’t have any reason to think she was at the incorrect polling location. She filled out the ballot. Unbeknownst to her, Texas considered Crystal ineligible to vote because, at the time, she was on federal supervised release after serving almost three years in prison for tax fraud. No one ever told her that she wasn’t allowed to vote until her federal supervised release was over.

The January 6th Committee continues to be a disappointment. They voted to hold Bannon in Contempt of Congress for defying their subpoena, but are not utilizing Congress's power to immediately arrest him and imprison him until he complies. Instead, they have asked Garland at the Justice Department to consider pressing charges against him, thereby allowing him to get the issue entangled in the court for years.

The millisecond Bannon indicated he would defy the subpoena, they should have held him in contempt and arrested him.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/21/politics/steve-bannon-house-contempt-vote/index.html

The only charitable explanation is that they think Bannon will get a harsher punishment from Garland/the Justice Department if Congress decides to be "nice" and forego their ability to arrest him themselves. But I don't have much confidence.

Don McGahn was held in Contempt of Congress for refusing to obey a subpoena related to information he had on the Mueller investigation, but it took OVER TWO YEARS for the courts to compel him to testify...

Adam Schiff, a Democratic party leader in the House of Representatives recently answered the public's questions online. I think some of the commenters might be too hasty in declaring us to be doomed, but it all hinges on Garland now. If he drops the ball on Bannon, then it indicates he is an active part of the cover up. After the January 6th Committee finishes its investigation, it will be Garland/the Justice Department are the ones who actually file the criminal charges against the organizers of the coup. If Garland won't even pursue charges against Bannon, then I don't see any hope that he will go after sitting politicians.

Why didn't the select committee use it's inherent powers to arrest Bannon instead of sending it to Garland?

Adam Schiff:
This is a really good question. We are not ruling it out, but the most speedy process is criminal prosecution, so we are going the route of referral. The House no longer has a jail (it used to), and if we tried to fine people, we would have to go to court to garnish their wages, and that takes time. Still, nothing is off the table while we pursue criminal contempt.

if the people who need to see that either only watch propaganda that won't cover it, or won't believe you anyway?

What good are words without action? What good are you even doing by merely sending strongly worded letters to people who refuse to honor subpoenas?

What good is the power you currently have if you won't use it? We know for a fact that if Republicans were in your position right now, they would have long since put people ignoring subpoenas in jail. They would have the democratic party on full(er) blast and would actually be using the power the clawed to themselves for personal enrichment and for the benefit of their donors while calling it the "mandate of the people."

You have the chance to actually use some power for once to bring justice to a lawless party who does not engage in speech and debate in good faith. You have the power to actually do something, and you refuse? Why? What good are words against someone who doesn't care about them? You actually have the mandate of the people. You just don't want to use it.

What's the point of having subpoenas if people served with them simply choose to ignore them, as Trump has recommended his subordinates do (and as they did during his impeachment trials)?

And while we see now that Bannon may be held in contempt of Congress, at what point does this actually translate to him being forced to show up in court?

Adam Schiff:
Agree. During Trump, we had no remedy but impeachment. Now, we can refer for criminal contempt (Barr wouldn’t do anything about those lying to cover up for Trump so it would have been futile to refer cases to him for prosecution. With new leadership now at DOJ, that has changed).

​Depends on DOJ and the court, but he could be imprisoned for up to a year for noncompliance …

Quote
House of Representatives could have set up a jail, had the Sargent at Arms arrest people who are in contempt, and held them there until they comply.

You've had 2.5+ years since 2018, two impeachments, multiple liars and people who have ignored subpoenas, and none of this was completed.

There are a many people in this thread who would be qualified of making sure the jail, the arrest, and the contempt charges are compliant with the law.

Rice echoes GOP’s un-American talking points: Jan. 6? Sure, it was awful, but get over it | Opinion

Condoleezza Rice wants to move on.

She concedes that what happened on Jan. 6 was “wrong.” It was, she told the hosts of “The View” last week, an “assault on law and order, and an assault on our democratic processes.” And Rice, a former national security advisor and secretary of state, thinks those who attacked and ransacked the U.S. Capitol should be punished. That day, she said, made her cry for the first time since Sept. 11.

So yes, it was a terrible day. It was a stunning day. It was a day that defiled democracy. But . . . “It’s time to move on,” she said.

Given Rice’s gravitas and credibility, it was a stunning pronouncement, but perhaps we ought not be surprised. After all, Republicans have been urging the rest of us to move on from Jan. 6 almost since Jan. 7. They refused to convict the former president for inciting the mob. They refused to authorize an independent bipartisan commission to investigate the insurrection. Some even questioned whether there was an insurrection to begin with.

Now comes Rice, urging us to “move on.” No more investigating. No more discussion. No more grappling with the hard questions it raises.

The mind seizes as it struggles to imagine anyone saying that about Sept. 11. That day is a livid scar upon American memory: the iconic buildings felled, the people caked in dust, the sudden sense of vulnerability, the candlelight vigils for those who were never coming home. Sept. 11 spawned an independent bipartisan commission, joint House and Senate committee hearings and two wars. We did not just “move on.”

And yet, ghastly and frightening as they were, the events of that day posed no threat to our national existence. There was never a chance that a band of thugs ambitiously punching above their weight could topple American democracy.

But that threat, however distant, was certainly in play on Jan. 6. What makes it worse is that the threat came from inside our own national house. Worse still, it’s still there, just as virulent as it ever was. So it is jarring to hear Condoleezza Rice chirp about the need to “move on to a better America.”

How, exactly, does that happen? How much must we ignore? How much must we forget?

And why would they even ask it of us? The only answer that presents itself is that Republicans fear Jan. 6 because it contains too many embarrassing truths.

Those were not, after all, Democrats breaking the windows, beating the cops, erecting the gallows. No, those were Republicans, albeit Republicans of a stripe that would have been a stranger to Reagan, McCain, Eisenhower or any other politician with even a molecule of statesmanship in them. Sadly, that’s a quality in short supply in the GOP just now. Even in places where you’d expect to find it — i.e., a respected former government official — it turns out the cupboard is bare. But the capacity for political expedience? That, they have in abundance.

“Move on,” she says.

To which the only patriotic reply is: No. Not until the questions are answered, the lessons learned, the nation secured, the culprits — those in the streets and those in the suites — held to account.

The forces that animated the events of Jan. 6 did not spring from nowhere. Nor did they disappear into mist when the clock struck midnight. We face a clear and abiding danger, one we ignore at great peril. With all due respect to Rice, if we don’t treat this with the seriousness it deserves, we won’t have a “better America” to move on to.

We’ll be lucky to have an America at all.

Rice also wants us to "move on" from the colonial era:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/issues/academic-decolonization/msg9539/#msg9539

We should give the same answer: not until the culprits - the Western colonial powers and the bloodlines which created them - are held to account.

Mainstream journalism is always late to the obvious conclusions:

https://www.salon.com/2021/10/27/donald-slow-motion-coup-is-becoming-a-runaway-train/

Quote
It is important to understand how this coup is playing out — how the runaway train is gaining steam. Several actions are occurring simultaneously. First, changes in state legislatures will allow partisans to determine election winners regardless of the actual vote and the will of the people. These changes in legislatures have already begun in Texas, Georgia and South Carolina. Second, voter suppression laws are being enacted in numerous states, with the almost overt priority of preventing people of color from voting is a top priority. Third, gerrymandering by Republicans is a growing strategy to affect election results: This week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott approved a pernicious new plan. Fourth, Trump's promulgation of his Big Lie and other disinformation continues. He keeps claiming that the presidential election was stolen from him and that Democrats must be defeated because they are "socialists."
...
This must be said again: Donald Trump is not just another typical politician. He is a malignant narcissist whose worst intentions are to destroy anything and anyone that threatens to deprive him of power, wealth and reverence. He will not stop until he is stopped by others because he has no conscience or moral compass. He is beyond political or personal salvation — he is deceitful, conniving, corrupt and dangerous, without any regard for others. He has no business being the leader of a country; to him, public service is an anarchic playground for his personal gratification. His malicious intentions cannot be overestimated.

Trump's "slow-moving coup" — his runaway train — must be stopped. To accomplish that, several steps need to be taken immediately.  First, Trump must be prosecuted for his misdeeds, his incitement of the insurrection of the Capitol and his attempts to sabotage the election by trying to alter the vote count (for example, in Georgia). Second, the congressional investigation of the Jan. 6 Capitol attack must be fully completed. Third, elected Republican officials who supported the insurrection must be held accountable. All the saboteurs must be rooted out — otherwise, they are like a cancer that is metastasizing with deadly force. We know with a high degree of certainty that Reps. Mo Brooks, Lauren Boebert, Andy Biggs, Louie Gohmert and others had contact with the insurrectionists in the days leading up to the Capitol attack. These members should resign or be expelled.

But what if the stuff in the last paragraph doesn't happen? Then clearly he will have to be stopped with bullets if he is to be stopped at all. Of course, mainstream journalism refuses to write this even though it is the only logical endpoint.

As I keep warning, it is impossible to appease rightists by making concessions to them:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/try-not-laugh-madison-cawthorn-100000916.html

Quote
Cawthorn said when announcing the switch that he feared that another “establishment, go-along-to-get-along Republican” would prevail in the 13th district if he didn’t run there.

You heard that right.

Tim Moore — yes, that Tim Moore, a conservative stalwart who even went on a “Stop the Steal” field trip to Pennsylvania — is now considered an establishment Republican.

That says a lot about what the Republican Party has become, especially here in North Carolina, where Trumpism is threatening to become the norm. The irony is that Moore and his fellow Republicans are the ones who got us — and themselves — here. Too many of them stood by and watched while extremists like Cawthorn lied and fear-mongered their way into power. They could have stopped it, but too often went along with it, particularly when they thought it could get them more money, more endorsements and more votes.

Turns out that unconditional loyalty isn’t as politically productive as Republicans thought it would be. Apparently, they’ve yet to learn what others have long known: people like Cawthorn aren’t loyal to anyone but themselves.

The only effective way to stop rightists is with the Second Amendment.

Quote
Then there are Dustin Stockton and Jen Lawrence.

The Jan. 6 rally was, for them, the culmination of work they had been doing for the past decade — work that long predated the election conspiracy, or QAnon, or Donald Trump’s political career. They surfed the waves of a populist tide that grew larger than anyone imagined, one dedicated to tearing down the establishment of both parties and the government itself, replacing it with a government they saw as closer to the people, closer to God, closer to the Constitution.

For years, Stockton and Lawrence had built a career around that movement — as fundraisers, campaign consultants, rally organizers, schemers; engineering ever-more-outlandish media stunts to serve up to an online audience ever more primed to click on them, raising millions in small-dollar donations that relied on Ethernet connections and outrage, taking advantage of loose electioneering laws to give any kind of advantage to favored candidates. They existed on what seemed like the margins of conservative politics until, suddenly, it wasn’t the margins anymore at all.

A number of non-governmental organizations that have long worked to rebuild communities in countries beset by violent and intractable conflicts — places that have collapsed under the weight of mass atrocities, political assassinations, authoritarian take overs, and widespread citizen violence — have shifted focus to a new subject: The United States.

For a country that has long thought of itself as a beacon of democracy, this is a wake-up call.

At this moment, our country is in great need of lessons on what it takes to restore crumbling political systems. This week, the United States was added to a list of “backsliding” democracies in an annual report on the global state of democracy, marking a serious decline in international observers’ assessments of our political stability.
https://www.msnbc.com/opinion/america-s-democracy-failing-world-knows-it-n1284597

Just now "backsliding"? We had a bloody coup attempt back in January. Trump openly boasted about sabotaging the Postal Service to rig the election back in like July 2020. And I'm not even going to mention all the other insane and illegal things that happened during the Trump administration (like the politicians in the Senate impeachment trial openly declaring they would not be impartial and that they were openly working with Trump, or Trump's Muslim Ban--which was one of his first acts President...)

Quote
Luckily, just because a democracy is in crisis does not mean it will collapse. On average, it takes about a decade from the onset of democratic backsliding to end in either democratic breakdown or recovery. But we are long overdue for a course correction.

In 2016, Trump asked an enemy nation to hack his opponent on live TV, and later received help from that nation giving him a critical edge to win the election. So, we're halfway through those 10 average years... Also, I don't see what's "lucky" about kicking the can down the road so a democracy can just face all of its structural problems again in a generation or two....

Quote
These cases demonstrate that it is possible — with sustained educational, national, and community investments — to create more informed citizens, restore trust across dividing lines, energize youth engagement, and reduce political violence. Doing so requires significant educational and media literacy programming. It requires engagement across sectors, through partnerships with civil society, the tech and media sector, local governments, and faith communities.

LOL. That is never going to happen. The media (including MSNBC) are what helped give us Trump and made people retarded by pushing yellow journalism and insane propaganda. All of those other things are basic ways to improve society that should already be happening on a routine basis, but never will, since the government doesn't give a damn.

Quote
Ultimately, restoring democracy requires creating a nation in which every citizen and resident feels part of a shared community in which they have a voice and a path to a common future.

Which will never happen in a democracy where 51% acts as a tyranny over the 49% (and where the politicians, in reality, don't give a damn about anyone who isn't in the 1% anyway!)

This author is delusional to think that people who literally believe in "alternative facts" (a term RIGHTISTS coined to refer to THEIR BELIEFS!) and live in an alternate reality will ever be able to be deprogrammed or spontaneously come back to reality so we can have a "common future".

There are two competing versions of the US. Which one will win? Just like the 1860s, there cannot simultaneously be two. One will eventually have to come out on top. Dumbass articles like this will ensure that the rightist version easily defeats the leftist version.

Trump admits his coup actually began in 2017:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-draws-attention-admission-fired-145805083.html

Quote
Former President Trump is drawing attention after giving an interview in which he admitted to firing ex-FBI Director James Comey and suggested that doing so allowed him to remain in office for four years.

"A lot of people say to me, how you survived is one of the most incredible things," Trump told Fox News host Mark Levin in an interview that aired Sunday night.

"Don't forget, I fired Comey. Had I not fired Comey, you might not be talking to me right now about a beautiful book of four years at the White House, and we'll see about the future. The future is going to be very interesting," Trump continued.

Trump was appearing on Levin's show to promote his new book of photos from his time in the White House. But the interview devolved into a series of grievances and boasts about his four years in office.

The former president's open admission that he fired Comey has garnered particular attention, as critics have argued it would amount to obstruction of justice if Trump removed the FBI director for investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russia.

Trump fired Comey in May 2017, which led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller. He has offered varying explanations for why he removed Comey and has at times acknowledged the Russia investigation played a role.

But Sunday's comments were among his most direct in saying firing the former FBI director may have prevented his removal from office.

Mueller in a 2019 report laid out 10 instances where Trump may have obstructed justice, one of which was Comey's ouster. Mueller declined to charge Trump at the time because a sitting president cannot be indicted.

Mueller has been vindicated by Trump himself!

A mainstream article says what we have been saying for much longer:

https://archive.md/Cx6Li

Quote
Trump’s Next Coup Has Already Begun
January 6 was practice. Donald Trump’s GOP is much better positioned to subvert the next election.
...
For more than a year now, with tacit and explicit support from their party’s national leaders, state Republican operatives have been building an apparatus of election theft. Elected officials in Arizona, Texas, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and other states have studied Donald Trump’s crusade to overturn the 2020 election. They have noted the points of failure and have taken concrete steps to avoid failure next time. Some of them have rewritten statutes to seize partisan control of decisions about which ballots to count and which to discard, which results to certify and which to reject. They are driving out or stripping power from election officials who refused to go along with the plot last November, aiming to replace them with exponents of the Big Lie. They are fine-tuning a legal argument that purports to allow state legislators to override the choice of the voters.
...
Any Republican might benefit from these machinations, but let’s not pretend there’s any suspense. Unless biology intercedes, Donald Trump will seek and win the Republican nomination for president in 2024.

A bullet can also intercede.

Quote
The party is in his thrall. No opponent can break it and few will try. Neither will a setback outside politics—indictment, say, or a disastrous turn in business—prevent Trump from running. If anything, it will redouble his will to power.

A bullet can prevent Trump from running.

Quote
Trump is successfully shaping the narrative of the insurrection in the only political ecosystem that matters to him. The immediate shock of the event, which briefly led some senior Republicans to break with him, has given way to a near-unanimous embrace. Virtually no one a year ago, certainly not I, predicted that Trump could compel the whole party’s genuflection to the Big Lie and the recasting of insurgents as martyrs.

Actually:

https://authenticamericandream.blogspot.com/2021/01/index-of-trump-republican-coup-news-articles-commentary.html

Quote
Today the few GOP dissenters are being cast out. “2 down, 8 to go!” Trump gloated at the retirement announcement of Representative Adam Kinzinger, one of 10 House Republicans to vote for his second impeachment.

Trump has reconquered his party by setting its base on fire. Tens of millions of Americans perceive their world through black clouds of his smoke. His deepest source of strength is the bitter grievance of Republican voters that they lost the White House, and are losing their country, to alien forces with no legitimate claim to power. This is not some transient or loosely committed population. Trump has built the first American mass political movement in the past century that is ready to fight by any means necessary, including bloodshed, for its cause.

As I have already said many times, all 75 million 2020 Trump voters must be exterminated.

Quote
With a sufficient dose of truth serum, most Republican politicians would likely confess that Biden won in 2020, but the great mass of lumpen Trumpers, who believe the Big Lie with unshakable force, oblige them to pretend otherwise.

No "deprogramming" (the False Left's favourite word for the last year) is possible. The choice is between exterminating them or letting them win.

Robert A. Pape, a well-credentialed connoisseur of political violence, watched the mob attack the Capitol on a television at home on January 6. A name came unbidden to his mind: Slobodan Milošević.

Back in June 1989, Pape had been a postdoctoral fellow in political science when the late president of Serbia delivered a notorious speech. Milošević compared Muslims in the former Yugoslavia to Ottomans who had enslaved the Serbs six centuries before. He fomented years of genocidal war that destroyed the hope for a multiethnic democracy, casting Serbs as defenders against a Muslim onslaught on “European culture, religion, and European society in general.”

Which reminds us of the rhetoric of someone else too:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/enemies/eric-zemmour-948/

Quote
By the time Trump unleashed the angry crowd on Congress, Pape, who is 61, had become a leading scholar on the intersection of warfare and politics. He saw an essential similarity between Milošević and Trump—one that suggested disturbing hypotheses about Trump’s most fervent supporters. Pape, who directs the University of Chicago Project on Security and Threats, or CPOST, called a staff meeting two days after the Capitol attack. “I talked to my research team and told them we were going to reorient everything we were doing,” he told me.

Milošević, Pape said, inspired bloodshed by appealing to fears that Serbs were losing their dominant place to upstart minorities. “What he is arguing” in the 1989 speech “is that Muslims in Kosovo and generally throughout the former Yugoslavia are essentially waging genocide on the Serbs,” Pape said. “And really, he doesn’t use the word replaced. But this is what the modern term would be.”

Pape was alluding to a theory called the “Great Replacement.” The term itself has its origins in Europe. But the theory is the latest incarnation of a racist trope that dates back to Reconstruction in the United States. Replacement ideology holds that a hidden hand (often imagined as Jewish) is encouraging the invasion of nonwhite immigrants, and the rise of nonwhite citizens, to take power from white Christian people of European stock. When white supremacists marched with torches in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017, they chanted, “Jews will not replace us!”

In reality, it is Zemmour who is the Jew. Here is another Jew:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/enemies/stephen-miller/

Which side are they on FFS?

The Charlottesville marchers are correct: Jews will not replace them. Jews never wanted to replace them. WE ARE THE ONES WHO WANT TO REPLACE THEM (AND JEWS)!

Quote
Trump borrowed periodically from the rhetorical canon of replacement. His remarks on January 6 were more disciplined than usual for a president who typically spoke in tangents and unfinished thoughts. Pape shared with me an analysis he had made of the text that Trump read from his prompter.

“Our country has been under siege for a long time, far longer than this four-year period,” Trump told the crowd. “You’re the real people. You’re the people that built this nation.” He famously added, “And we fight. We fight like hell. And if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

Just like Milošević, Trump had skillfully deployed three classic themes of mobilization to violence, Pape wrote: “The survival of a way of life is at stake. The fate of the nation is being determined now. Only genuine brave patriots can save the country.”

Watching how the Great Replacement message was resonating with Trump supporters, Pape and his colleagues suspected that the bloodshed on January 6 might augur something more than an aberrant moment in American politics. The prevailing framework for analyzing extremist violence in the U.S., they thought, might not be adequate to explain what was happening.

Leftists must not deny the Great Replacement. We must celebrate it. Denying it only makes it appear unethical, when it is in fact it would be, if it succeeds, one of most carthartic acts of justice in history. It will be finally Western civilization, after 500 years of colonialism, being made to face its victims.

Quote
When the Biden administration published a new homeland-security strategy in June, it described the assault on the Capitol as a product of “domestic violent extremists,” and invoked an intelligence assessment that said attacks by such extremists come primarily from lone wolves or small cells. Pape and his colleagues doubted that this captured what had happened on January 6.

The "small cell" is ~75 million in number.

Quote
They set about seeking systematic answers to two basic questions: Who were the insurgents, in demographic terms? And what political beliefs animated them and their sympathizers?
...
only 7 percent of the January 6 insurgents were jobless, and more than half of the group had a white-collar job or owned their own business. There were doctors, architects, a Google field-operations specialist, the CEO of a marketing firm, a State Department official. “The last time America saw middle-class whites involved in violence was the expansion of the second KKK in the 1920s,” Pape told me.

Yes:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/colonial-era/trumpism-is-an-echo/

Quote
The researchers tried a hypothesis: Insurgents might be more likely to come from counties where white household income was dropping. Not so. Household income made no difference at all.

I told you so:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/true-left-vs-false-left/true-left-breakthrough-non-economic-explanations/

Quote
Only one meaningful correlation emerged. Other things being equal, insurgents were much more likely to come from a county where the white share of the population was in decline. For every one-point drop in a county’s percentage of non-Hispanic whites from 2015 to 2019, the likelihood of an insurgent hailing from that county increased by 25 percent. This was a strong link, and it held up in every state.

Yawn.

Quote
Trump and some of his most vocal allies, Tucker Carlson of Fox News notably among them, had taught supporters to fear that Black and brown people were coming to replace them. According to the latest census projections, white Americans will become a minority, nationally, in 2045. The insurgents could see their majority status slipping before their eyes.

No, Trump and Carlson only stirred up what was already there. Wake up and smell the racist bloodlines!

Quote
Pollsters ordinarily expect survey respondents to give less support to more transgressive language. “The more you asked pointed questions about violence, the more you should be getting ‘social-desirability bias,’ where people are just more reluctant,” Pape told me.

Here, the opposite happened: the more extreme the sentiments, the greater the number of respondents who endorsed them. In the June results, just over 8 percent agreed that Biden was illegitimate and that violence was justified to restore Trump to the White House. That corresponds to 21 million American adults. Pape called them “committed insurrectionists.” (An unrelated Public Religion Research Institute survey on November 1 found that an even larger proportion of Americans, 12 percent, believed both that the election had been stolen from Trump and that “true American patriots may have to resort to violence in order to save our country.”)

Why such a large increase? Pape believed that Trump supporters simply preferred the harsher language, but “we cannot rule out that attitudes hardened” between the first and second surveys. Either interpretation is troubling. The latter, Pape said, “would be even more concerning since over time we would normally think passions would cool.”

You think that way because you are a False Leftist. True Leftists still remember the colonial era and hate Westerners for it.

Quote
In the CPOST polls, only one other statement won overwhelming support among the 21 million committed insurrectionists. Almost two-thirds of them agreed that “African American people or Hispanic people in our country will eventually have more rights than whites.”

How long have "whites" had more "rights" than "non-whites" in US history? Should not "non-whites" have more "rights" (though I dislike the term) than "whites" for at least the same duration just in order to make it fair?

Quote
Slicing the data another way: Respondents who believed in the Great Replacement theory, regardless of their views on anything else, were nearly four times as likely as those who did not to support the violent removal of the president.

I know.

Quote
What Pape was seeing in these results did not fit the government model of lone wolves and small groups of extremists. “This really is a new, politically violent mass movement,” he told me. “This is collective political violence.”

Yes. And it takes collective political retaliatory violence to defeat this.

Quote
The former Coast Guard rescue diver from Kentucky had joined the crowd at the Capitol on January 6 but said he has not heard from law enforcement. Civil war is coming, he told me, and “I would fight for my country.”

Was he speaking metaphorically?

“No, I’m not,”

See?

Quote
Violent political conflict, he told me, was inevitable, because Trump’s opponents “want actual war here in America. That’s what they want.”

No, I would have infinitely preferred Western civilization to have died peacefully as it was supposed to have done via the Counterculture era. But Trump, despite living during the Counterculture era, was one of those who never adopted its attitudes (as was always evident from the decor of his properties: https://trueleft.createaforum.com/true-left-vs-right/western-civilization-is-ugly-48/msg4197/#msg4197 ). So Trump is the one who wants a war.

Quote
the Trump team achieved something crucial and enduring by convincing tens of millions of angry supporters, including a catastrophic 68 percent of all Republicans in a November PRRI poll, that the election had been stolen from Trump.
...
For a few short weeks, Republicans recoiled at the insurrection and distanced themselves from Trump. That would not last.
...
Trump himself proposed the final inversion of January 6 as a political symbol: “The insurrection took place on November 3, Election Day. January 6 was the Protest!” he wrote in a statement released by his fundraising group in October.

It is difficult today to find a Republican elected official who will take issue with that proposition in public. With Trump loyalists ascendant, no room is left for dissent in a party now fully devoted to twisting the electoral system for the former president.
...
Now a GOP-dominated state board, beholden to the legislature, may overrule and take control of voting tallies in any jurisdiction—for example, a heavily Black and Democratic one like Fulton County. The State Election Board can suspend a county board if it deems the board to be “underperforming” and replace it with a handpicked administrator. The administrator, in turn, will have final say on disqualifying voters and declaring ballots null and void. Instead of complaining about balls and strikes, Team Trump will now own the referee.

And the Biden administration is letting it happen:

Quote
The Justice Department has filed suit to overturn some provisions of the new Georgia law—but not to challenge the hostile takeover of election authorities. Instead, the federal lawsuit takes issue with a long list of traditional voter-suppression tactics that, according to Attorney General Merrick Garland, have the intent and effect of disadvantaging Black voters. These include prohibitions and “onerous fines” that restrict the distribution of absentee ballots, limit the use of ballot drop boxes, and forbid handing out food or water to voters waiting in line. These provisions make it harder, by design, for Democrats to vote in Georgia. The provisions that Garland did not challenge make it easier for Republicans to fix the outcome. They represent danger of a whole different magnitude.

By the way:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merrick_Garland

Quote
Garland was raised in Conservative Judaism, the family name having been changed from Garfinkel several generations prior.

So again, Jews will not replace our enemies. Either we do it ourselves, or it won't happen.

Continuing:

Quote
The infinite scroll of right-wing social media is relentlessly bloody-minded. One commentator on Telegram posted on January 7 that “the congress is literally begging the people to hang them.” Another replied, “Anyone who certifies a fraudulent election has commited treason punishable by death.” One week later came, “The last stand is a civil war.” In response, another user wrote, “No protests. To late for that.” The fire burns, if anything, even hotter now, a year later.

Four justices—Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Clarence Thomas—have already signaled support for a doctrine that disallows any such deviation from the election rules passed by a state legislature. It is an absolutist reading of legislative control over the “manner” of appointing electors under Article II of the U.S. Constitution. Justice Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s last appointee, has never opined on the issue.

Duh!

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/news/court-packing/

And Biden won't help us:

Quote
having looked directly toward the threat on the horizon, Biden seemed to turn away, as if he doubted the evidence before his eyes. There was no appreciable call to action, save for the bare words themselves: “We’ve got to act.” Biden’s list of remedies was short and grossly incommensurate with the challenge. He expressed support for two bills—the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act—that were dead on arrival in the Senate because Democrats had no answer to the Republican filibuster. He said the attorney general would double the Department of Justice staff devoted to voting-rights enforcement. Civil-rights groups would “stay vigilant.” Vice President Kamala Harris would lead “an all-out effort to educate voters about the changing laws, register them to vote, and then get the vote out.”

And then he mentioned one last plan that proved he did not accept the nature of the threat: “We will be asking my Republican friends—in Congress, in states, in cities, in counties—to stand up, for God’s sake, and help prevent this concerted effort to undermine our elections and the sacred right to vote.”

So: enforcement of inadequate laws, wishful thinking about new laws, vigilance, voter education, and a friendly request that Republicans stand athwart their own electoral schemes.

Conspicuously missing from Biden’s speech was any mention even of filibuster reform, without which voting-rights legislation is doomed. Nor was there any mention of holding Trump and his minions accountable, legally, for plotting a coup.

What will happen next is obvious to anyone who can see:

Quote
Absent consequences, they will certainly try again. An unpunished plot is practice for the next.

There is only one way left to stop it:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-advisor-peter-navarro-lays-out-how-he-and-steve-bannon-planned-to-overturn-bidens-electoral-win

Quote
A former Trump White House official says he and right-wing provocateur Steve Bannon were actually behind the last-ditch coordinated effort by rogue Republicans in Congress to halt certification of the 2020 election results and keep President Donald Trump in power earlier this year, in a plan dubbed the “Green Bay Sweep.”

In his recently published memoir, Peter Navarro, then-President Donald Trump’s trade adviser, details how he stayed in close contact with Bannon as they put the Green Bay Sweep in motion with help from members of Congress loyal to the cause.

But in an interview last week with The Daily Beast, Navarro shed additional light on his role in the operation and their coordination with politicians like Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“We spent a lot of time lining up over 100 congressmen, including some senators. It started out perfectly. At 1 p.m., Gosar and Cruz did exactly what was expected of them,” Navarro told The Daily Beast. “It was a perfect plan. And it all predicated on peace and calm on Capitol Hill. We didn’t even need any protestors, because we had over 100 congressmen committed to it.”

That commitment appeared as Congress was certifying the 2020 Electoral College votes reflecting that Joe Biden beat Trump. Sen. Cruz signed off on Gosar’s official objection to counting Arizona’s electoral ballots, an effort that was supported by dozens of other Trump loyalists.

Staffers for Cruz and Gosar did not respond to requests for comment. There’s no public indication whether the Jan. 6 Committee has sought testimony or documents from Sen. Cruz or Rep. Gosar. But the committee has only recently begun to seek evidence from fellow members of Congress who were involved in the general effort to keep Trump in the White House, such as Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA).

This last-minute maneuvering never had any chance of actually decertifying the election results on its own, a point that Navarro quickly acknowledges. But their hope was to run the clock as long as possible to increase public pressure on then-Vice President Mike Pence to send the electoral votes back to six contested states, where Republican-led legislatures could try to overturn the results. And in their mind, ramping up pressure on Pence would require media coverage. While most respected news organizations refused to regurgitate unproven conspiracy theories about widespread election fraud, this plan hoped to force journalists to cover the allegations by creating a historic delay to the certification process.

“The Green Bay Sweep was very well thought out. It was designed to get us 24 hours of televised hearings,” he said. “But we thought that we could bypass the corporate media by getting this stuff televised.”

Navarro’s part in this ploy was to provide the raw materials, he said in an interview on Thursday. That came in the form of a three-part White House report he put together during his final weeks in the Trump administration with volume titles like, “The Immaculate Deception” and “The Art of the Steal.”

“My role was to provide the receipts for the 100 congressmen or so who would make their cases… who could rely in part on the body of evidence I'd collected,” he told The Daily Beast. “To lay the legal predicate for the actions to be taken.” (Ultimately, states have not found any evidence of electoral fraud above the norm, which is exceedingly small.)

The next phase of the plan was up to Bannon, Navarro describes in his memoir, In Trump Time.

“Steve Bannon’s role was to figure out how to use this information—what he called ‘receipts’—to overturn the election result. That’s how Steve had come up with the Green Bay Sweep idea,” he wrote.

“The political and legal beauty of the strategy was this: by law, both the House of Representatives and the Senate must spend up to two hours of debate per state on each requested challenge. For the six battleground states, that would add up to as much as twenty-four hours of nationally televised hearings across the two chambers of Congress.”

His book also notes that Bannon was the first person he communicated with when he woke up at dawn on Jan. 6, writing, “I check my messages and am pleased to see Steve Bannon has us fully ready to implement our Green Bay Sweep on Capitol Hill. Call the play. Run the play.”

Navarro told The Daily Beast he felt fortunate that someone cancelled his scheduled appearance to speak to Trump supporters that morning at the Ellipse, a park south of the White House that would serve as a staging area before the violent assault on the U.S. Capitol building.

“It was better for me to spend that morning working on the Green Bay Sweep. Just checking to see that everything was in line, that congressmen were on board,” he said during the interview. “It was a pretty mellow morning for me. I was convinced everything was set in place.”

Later that day, Bannon made several references to the football-themed strategy on his daily podcast, War Room Pandemic.

"We are right on the cusp of victory,” Bannon said on the show. “It’s quite simple. Play’s been called. Mike Pence, run the play. Take the football. Take the handoff from the quarterback. You’ve got guards in front of you. You’ve got big, strong people in front of you. Just do your duty."

Chilling Trump Letter Calling For 'Seizure' Of Election Material Revealed In Log To Jan. 6 Probers

The letter was created a day before Trump discussed naming conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell "special counsel" to probe baseless election fraud claims.

A chilling item in a document log provided to Jan. 6 investigators describes a draft letter by then-President Donald Trump calling for the “seizure” of election materials after he lost.

The log, along with a trove of documents, was provided last week to the House select committee probing the insurrection. They were handed over by Trump ally Bernard Kerik, former New York City police commissioner and a confidant of Trump’s one-time attorney Rudy Giuliani, Politico reported.

Kerik was a key adviser to Trump’s legal team trying to cook up a narrative of fraud in the presidential election Joe Biden won.

Besides the documents Kerik turned over to the committee, he also offered a log of documents he refused to provide, including the Trump letter, according to Politico.

Among the documents withheld is one described as a “Draft Letter from POTUS to Seize Evidence in the Interest of National Security for the 2020 Elections.”

Though Trump ultimately didn’t take action to seize election materials, such a letter could be a key piece of information in the investigation into Trump’s strategy to undermine a legitimate election.

Authorities have found no evidence of any notable fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

The letter was created Dec. 17, 2020, a day before Trump met in the Oval Office with advisers including retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and discussed seizing election equipment in states Trump lost.

Trump also discussed naming controversial far-right attorney and conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell as a “special counsel” to investigate alleged election fraud, The New York Times reported, but Trump didn’t follow through with it.

Flynn had already suggested Trump could invoke martial law to seize control of the election.

The Dominion Voting Systems has since sued Powell for $1.3 billion for the “unprecedented harm” it says Powell wreaked with her “wild,” baseless allegations of voter fraud.

Powell and other attorneys were ordered to pay $175,000 in sanctions to Michigan officials they had unsuccessfully sued over baseless claims of election fraud.

A U.S. District judge said the lawyers had engaged in “a historic and profound abuse of the judicial process,” and called some of the claims “fantastical.”

Kerik has agreed to a voluntary interview with the House select committee, possibly on Jan. 13. He was subpoenaed by the panel in November.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just realized the full significance of this. Peter Navarro just confessed he and Bannon planned the Coup Vote on live TV. WTF!

https://authenticamericandream.blogspot.com/2021/01/46-republican-congressmen-pledge-to-support-coup.html


While he probably already described this in detail in his book and Bannon seems to already described it as well, this is yet another smoking gun (1) proving that this was an inside job coordinated by the majority of the Republican party, (2) proving there was a seditious conspiracy (the "Green Bay Sweep"), and (3) this just reinforces that carrying out the Coup Vote/Green Bay Sweep itself on January 6th was an act of sedition.

'Do you realize you are describing a coup?': MSNBC host challenges Trump aide after he described plans to overturn the 2020 election

The MSNBC host Ari Melber on Tuesday challenged Peter Navarro, a former Trump White House economic advisor, over his description of plans to challenge the 2020 presidential election result, saying Navarro was actually "describing a coup."

Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, was asked by Trump to do research on China, and turned to Amazon, the report said.

There, he found a book co-written by Peter Navarro and was struck by its title, "Death by China."

Kushner then cold-called Navarro and invited him to be an adviser to the Trump campaign, according to the report. Navarro now directs the White House National Trade Council and serves as the Assistant to the President.

When the Trump campaign brought on Navarro, he was the only economic adviser on the team and likely reinforced Trump's convictions about China's trade policies.

A Capitol rioter said participating in the insurrection gave him 'street cred' and a 'badge of honor' among conservatives
Quote
A man who participated in the storming of the US Capitol last year said he believes he's earned a "badge of honor" among conservatives for participating in the January 6, 2021, insurrection.

Paul Davis told the New York Times that he initially felt ashamed of himself for having participated in the Capitol riot. He was fired from his job as a lawyer and his fiancée left him, the Times reported.

But then he had a change of heart and began to feel proud of his involvement, he told the Times.

"It definitely activated me more," Davis said. "It gave me street cred."
Quote
He said the Capitol riot motivated him to start up his own law firm that represents workers who do not want to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Davis was among the 12 people interviewed by the Times who said their participation in the Capitol riot now represents resistance to the status quo.

The Capitol riot left five people, including one police officer, dead. Members of right-wing extremist groups, including the Proud Boys, which is classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, were present.

Organizers were emboldened by former President Donald Trump's urges to protest the results of the 2020 election, despite President Joe Biden's election victory. While members of Congress were meeting inside the Capitol building day to certify the results, supporters organized an attempted coup and stormed the building.
Quote
Upon news that the riot breached the Capitol building, lawmakers sheltered in place and many evacuated.

On the day of the riot and in the weeks after, those who attended posted selfies and other photos to their social media platforms, which has been a vital tool for federal investors tracking down who participated. More than 750 people have been charged in connection with the insurrection, according to Insider's database.

Vox, for example, reported that many rioters posed for photos. Others bragged of their attempt to pull off a coup, the Washington Post said. One woman even identified herself by name in an interview with a reporter posted to Twitter.

Some Capitol rioters, upon realizing that the FBI was investigating the origin of the riot, have scrambled to delete evidence of their participation.

By now, this is simply about who manages to round up whom first:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/newt-gingrich-says-jan-6-205532148.html

Quote
Newt Gingrich says that Jan. 6 Committee is 'basically a lynch mob' that could go to jail if Republicans get power
...
The House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot has subpoenaed dozens of people close to former President Donald Trump, including Mark Meadows, Steve Bannon, Rudy Giuliani, and Sidney Powell. Last week, the committee asked Ivanka Trump for her voluntary cooperation with its probe.

The committee is "literally just running over the law" and "pursuing innocent people," Gingrich said, claiming the committee is "basically a lynch mob" and that Garland is "misusing the FBI."

"What they need to understand is on January 4 next year, you're going to have a Republican majority in the House, and a Republican majority in the Senate," Gingrich predicted Sunday, adding "all these people who have been so tough and so mean and so nasty are gonna be delivered subpoenas for every document, every conversation, every tweet, every email."
...
"I think when you have a Republican Congress, this is all going to come crashing down, and the wolves are going to find out that they're now sheep," Gingrich said. "And they're the ones who are, in fact, going to, I think, face a real risk of jail for the kind of laws they're breaking."

This is why I keep saying it is stupid to think it is enough to passively wait for the investigation to be completed at its own pace, because our enemies will never allow this to happen. Everyone supporting the coup who wasn't immediately thrown in jail on Jan 6th should have begun to be Second Amendment targets from Jan 7th onwards. It is because this has not happened that Gingrich now feels emboldened enough to talk like this. The correct response now is to start by shooting him.

Proud Boys leader has no sympathy for lawmakers targeted by Capitol riot
Quote
Miami (CNN)The leader of the far-right Proud Boys group does not care that lawmakers were terrorized by rioters inside the US Capitol on January 6 as they tried to do their jobs. 
Quote
"I'm not gonna cry about people who don't give a crap about their constituents. I'm not going to sympathize with them," Enrique Tarrio says. 
 More than a dozen people affiliated with the often violent, far-right  "Western Chauvinist" group have been charged for their roles in the insurrection, so CNN sat down with Tarrio to hear if he had any explanation or justification for their actions, or if he would now change tack. 

He gives pointed responses, but then adds lots of caveats.

 What he has not done is change his mind about the role the Proud Boys played on January 6 or his feelings about the targeting of members of Congress despite the release of so much stunningly violent video. The attack left five people dead and dozens of police officers injured.

The day after the attack, Tarrio posted a photo of House members crouched down and hiding, with a caption, "When the people fear the government, there is tyranny ... When the government fears the people ... There is liberty." He told CNN he was quoting Thomas Jefferson, though there is no evidence the third President ever said that, according to his foundation.
Quote
"When they support drone-bombing children in the Middle East ... [and] those people are dead and they're just cowering because a group of misfits came into the Capitol, I'm not going to be sympathetic," Tarrio tells CNN.

He doubles down, dismissing the specter of a mob that had hammered on doors to the House and Senate trying to get to those inside: "I'm not going to worry about people that their only worry is to be reelected."
Tarrio was not at the Capitol on January 6. He was ordered to stay away from Washington, after being arrested in the city two days prior to the insurrection on a misdemeanor charge in connection to the burning of a church's Black Lives Matter banner  in December, in addition to weapons charges. He admitted to both to CNN.
He says over and over that he doesn't support the attack on the Capitol, but he won't condemn the attackers either.
It's not that simple, he says. "I think condemn is a very strong word."
Tarrio says he understands what got people so frustrated. Donald Trump supporters have felt demonized after being called "deplorables" and have been angry about protests that have turned violent in places like Portland and Minneapolis, shutdowns due to coronavirus and being kicked off popular social media sites, he says. Some, though not Tarrio, believe the lie that the election was stolen.
Tarrio believes members of his organization got caught up in the moment, adding he might have done the same if he had been there.
But he is also adamant the group never had plans to storm the Capitol.
Entire article: https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/25/politics/capitol-riot-proud-boys-enrique-tarrio-soh/index.html

I like the term "Western Chauvinist" used here. Basically the same as saying "Western tribalists". Lest we forget though that all Westerners are tribalists via their support, often implicit, for an anthropocentric and humanist sociopolitical system.

Fulton judges greenlight special grand jury for Trump probe
Quote
The judges on Fulton County’s Superior Court bench on Monday cleared the way for a special grand jury to be used for District Attorney Fani Willis’ investigation of former President Donald Trump and his efforts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results.

Chief Judge Christopher S. Brasher wrote that a majority of the judges had agreed to the request issued by Willis’ office late last week.

The special grand jury will be impaneled May 2 and can continue for a period “not to exceed 12 months,” Brasher wrote in an order.

“The special purpose grand jury shall be authorized to investigate any and all facts and circumstances relating directly or indirectly to alleged violations of the laws of the State of Georgia,” Brasher wrote.
Quote
Willis’ criminal probe, launched nearly a year ago, is centered on the Jan. 2, 2021, phone call that Trump placed to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which he urged the Republican to “find” the 11,780 votes to overcome Joe Biden’s win here.

The veteran prosecutor has indicated that her team is also examining the abrupt resignation of former Atlanta-based U.S. Attorney BJay Pak; a November 2020 call U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., placed to Raffensperger; and false claims made by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani during a hearing before the Georgia Senate Judiciary Committee.

Willis previously told state officials that her office was probing potential violations of Georgia law including criminal solicitation to commit election fraud, intentional interference with the performance of election duties, conspiracy and racketeering, among others.
Quote
Willis previously argued that appointing a special grand jury was necessary because a “significant number of witnesses and prospective witnesses have refused to cooperate with the investigation absent a subpoena requiring their testimony.” That includes Raffensperger, she said, who would presumably be the case’s star witness.

For his part, Raffensperger insisted that his office has been cooperative and slammed Willis, a Democrat, for trying to score political points. Despite that, he vowed during an interview on Fox News last week to “follow the law and come before a grand jury and testify.”

Special grand juries, which include 16 to 23 people, are rare in Georgia. They can’t issue indictments but can subpoena witnesses and compel the production of documents and information. Unlike regular grand juries, they can be seated for longer than two months and are focused on a singular topic rather than many.

At the end of their service, special grand juries file a report of their findings and sometimes recommend a course of action. If prosecutors ultimately want to seek an indictment, they’d need to present evidence to a regular grand jury.

A spokesperson for Willis did not immediately respond to a request for comment about next steps. But the selection process for jurors is expected to be similar to that of regular grand juries, and the proceedings done in secret.

Some legal observers believe that a special grand jury could benefit Willis given the complexity of the case.

“Special grand juries do have the capacity to streamline investigations,” said Norman Eisen, President Barack Obama’s ethics czar who recently co-authored a report assessing Trump’s legal risk for the Brookings Institution think tank. “You don’t have to reteach the case to each successive regular grand jury.”

Should a case against Trump move forward, his lawyers are expected to fight every request made by prosecutors, which could drag out the investigative process for months or longer.
Quote
A spokesperson for the former president did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday. Trump last week called his phone call to Raffensperger “perfect” and said that a special grand jury should instead be looking at “the large scale voter fraud that took place in Georgia,” a falsehood that’s been proven wrong by three ballot counts and multiple investigations that found no evidence of a coordinated effort to change votes.

Brasher noted that Judge Robert C.I. McBurney, who’s been on the court for a decade, has been assigned to supervise the special grand jury and receive its reports. McBurney is a former prosecutor for the Fulton DA’s office and for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Atlanta.

Willis recently said that a decision on whether to bring charges against Trump could come in the first half of 2022.

“We’re going to just get the facts, get the law, be very methodical, very patient and, in some extent, unemotional about this quest for justice,” she told The Associated Press earlier this month.

Fulton prosecutors are sharing information with investigators in New York and on Capitol Hill, where Trump is facing other local, state and federal probes.

Willis faces critics who believe the DA’s office should focus its limited resources on clearing the 11,000-case backlog of criminal cases created by the COVID-19 pandemic rather than chasing Trump.


Brasher said that impaneling a special grand jury will free up Fulton’s two regular grand juries to focus on that backlog.

The QAnon cult is going to interpret this as the signal that "The Storm"--a massive purge/massacre of all left-leaning Americans--will soon begin. They were prophesying Trump would give the signal for this around January 6th, but they were disappointed that he "merely" gave the signal for a localized insurrection.

Even "regular" die-hard Trump fans may stop short of initiating an actual ethnic cleansing, but the schizo QAnon cult followers will have no problems. (And once they begin it, the "regular" Trumpers will join in the chaos). Things are going to get really, really, really bad soon if Trump and his co-conspirators are not arrested. (And even if Trump is arrested, since Trump said the signal will be if he faces any legal consequences... Sigh, they should have arrested him prior to that ffs...)



Each time we think things can't get any worse or crazier, they do...

In key battleground states still under GOP control such as Georgia and Texas, the party is removing the civil servants who confirm who has won and replacing them with party loyalists. I am not making this up. They are replacing the refs with their own players. That way if the other side wins, they can site some evidence of voter fraud — there’s always some small error in a statewide election — and throw out the results. And because the ultimate power to select delegates to the Electoral College belongs to the state legislatures, they can simply send an alternative slate of delegates who will vote the party line.
...
That’s the state of our union in 2022 whatever President Joe Biden has to say about it to Congress in his State of the Union Address on March 1. And you can forget counting on good Christians like Gov. Bill Lee or U.S. Sens. Bill Hagerty and Marsha Blackburn to do anything about it. They seem devilishly delighted by the prospects of a game where their side cannot lose.

The correct response, therefore, is to assassinate the refs put in by the GOP, and keep doing this until no one on their side is willing to take up these positions anymore. This is what the Second Amendment was intended for.

It takes what to us may seem an unbelievably long time for the mainstream to reach obvious conclusions, but better late than never:

https://us.yahoo.com/news/opinion-no-hope-saving-republican-153030513.html

Quote
As of February 2022, it is now official and incontrovertible: the Republican Party is the party of sedition.
...
in the year since the insurrection, when even more proof of the plot has come out, the Republican leadership has continued to insist, against all evidence, that the 2020 election was stolen – Big Lie One.

Now we have Big Lie Two – that the rioters’ coup attempt was just a bunch of Rotarians visiting the Capitol.
...
Until about last week, some of us thought that possibly, just possibly, the GOP could be saved. Perhaps when Trump and his ilk were gone, sanity could be restored. But when Mitch McConnell said of the GOP Big Lies, "We saw it happen. It was a violent insurrection for the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election, from one administration to the next. That’s what it was," he was not praised and honored for defending truth. He was excoriated by most other Republicans for contradicting the Big Lies.

If there was a time when the GOP breathed its last dying breath, this was it. The Republican Party became the Big Lies Sedition Party, mandating that its members believe the obvious lies. (I would term it Treason Party, meaning the common definition, but someone will counter that the Constitution has a specific definition.)

There is no hope for resurrection. Everyone associated with the present GOP who has supported what the party has become must be driven from office. A new party must be formed, based on some of the principles above. Trump may comment from prison for countless felonies.

GOP delenda est. What’s to be done with the ashes I must leave to others.

They’re refusing to cooperate ― and in some cases, defying subpoenas ― knowing their court cases will take time and hoping to stall past the midterm elections. Republicans appear poised to retake control of the House and shut down the investigation, which would let all of Trump’s allies off the hook:

Post by: guest55 on March 13, 2022, 12:56:14 am
Yes, of course, Donald Trump can win in 2024
Quote
When I meet people and they find out I am a political reporter, they inevitably -- and immediately -- ask some version of this question: "Is he going to run again? And can he win?"
The "he" there -- just in case you've spent the last six years on another planet -- is Donald Trump.
And the answers to those questions are "probably yes" and "definitely." As in, yes, Trump is probably going to run for president again in 2024. And, yes, he would have a very real chance of winning.

Let's take the second half of that question first. A new Wall Street Journal poll shows Trump and President Joe Biden each at 45% among registered voters in a hypothetical 2024 matchup, results that are largely unchanged since the last time WSJ asked the question in November.

The simple fact is that if the 2020 presidential race was re-run today, it would effectively be a pure toss up.

Which, if you think about it, makes sense. While Biden took more than 300 electoral votes, his margins in a series of swing states -- like Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania -- were decidedly narrow. And had those states gone for Trump, he would have almost certainly been reelected.
Now, that is putting the cart before the horse. So, let's return to the first question: Will Trump run?

If you believe him, then yes.
"We've already won two presidential elections," Trump told a group of Republican donors in New Orleans recently. (Fact check: he won the 2016 election and lost the 2020 election.) "And now I feel obligated that we have to really look strongly at doing it again. We are looking at it very, very strongly. We have to do it. We have to do it."
At the Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida late last month, Trump sounded a similar note. "On November 2024, they will find out like never before," he said. "We did it twice and we'll do it again, we're going to be doing it again a third time." (Trump won a 2024 straw poll at CPAC with ease.)
It may be hard to believe given all Trump has said and done since leaving office -- repeatedly pushing a false conspiracy about the 2020 election, praising Russian President Vladimir Putin as a genius -- that he is a) an overwhelming favorite for the Republican nomination and b) a coin toss, at worst, to win the 2024 general election.

But, it's true.
The Point: Trump is the least predictable politician, well, ever. Which means that you can never bank of anything with him -- including another run for president. But, man does it look and sound like he is going to run again. And, yes, he can win.

The federal prosecutors in the case of Enrique Tarrio, leader of the so-called Proud Boys group, just filed a motion seeking to detain Tarrio pending trial. In that motion, the prosecutors mention that the Proud Boys leapt into action as a result of Donald Trump's tweet of December 19, 2020, telling them to come to DC on Jan. 6, "will be wild."

Navarro was subpoenaed after admitting his plan to overturn the 2020 election, along with Steve Bannon, in a newsworthy interview with MSNBC anchor Ari Melber.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Conflicts of Interest & the Need for an Impeachment Inquiry
Quote
There is a crisis at the Supreme Court as a result of the deeply unethical conduct of Justice Clarence Thomas. There are many suggestions and proposals emerging about what should be done to deal with the current crisis, as well as how to deter future misconduct by Supreme Court Justices. Those proposals include future recusal of Thomas from all January 6 and 2020 election related cases. Others involve the court adopting a code of conduct and mechanisms to enforce violations thereof.

This video argues in favor of public hearings into what Justice Thomas did, why he did it, and whether his conduct warrants impeachment.

I didn't watch the video, but that seems like old news? Back in October, John Eastman already admitted he was on a conference call with over 300 Republican officials:
Quote
Days later, on October 26, investigative journalist Lauren Windsor talked to Eastman and recorded Eastman reiterating his support for the coup plan.
[...]
Part 4. This is one of the most interesting videos, as Eastman says he, Trump, Giuliani, and 300 Republican legislators met on a conference call on January 2nd. He may be referring to state level legislators, who were being encouraged to decertify their states' electors. Although, it could also be referring to meeting with Republicans in federal Congress in order to run through their plan for the Coup Vote. Worse, Eastman says in "every precinct across the country" there are "homegrown" Republican agents who are preparing to steal the upcoming elections.

NY DA Bragg tries to double-talk his way out of his decision to end the Trump criminal investigation
Quote
During the course of the extended criminal investigation into Donald Trump's financial crimes by the New York District Attorney's Office, the lead prosecutors, Mark Pomerantz and Carey Dunne, were preparing to indict Trump for "multiple felonies" which they believed they could prove beyond a reasonable doubt. However, the newly elected District Attorney Alvin Bragg took office on January 1 and promptly killed the investigating, including returning evidence to witnesses. A public outcry followed. So now, DA Bragg is trying to talk his way out of his earlier decision attempting to sell to New Yorkers the claim that he really is still investigating Donald Trump's crimes.

This video highlights the reasons Alvin Bragg's claims are not credible.

Quote
CNN just reported that Donald Trump Jr. sent text messages to his father's then-Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on Nov. 5, 2020 - two days BEFORE the votes were counted and the election called - saying "we have operational control" and urging that his father's second term as president "must start now."

This conduct is breathtaking in its treasonous bravado and in its casual disregard for the will of the American voters. These texts distinguish Don Jr. as a charter member of his father's criminal conspiracy to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, as this video discusses.

We seem to be living in an upside-down world, where the three branches of government have not yet come into proper alignment after the destruction and deconstruction of the Trump years. We are seeing a legislative branch that is investigating the crimes of Donald Trump and his co-conspirators and announcing that they have enough evidence to conclude that Trump committed crimes against the United States. We are seeing the judicial branch - through the statements and rulings of multiple federal judges - announcing that Donald Trump committed crimes against the United States. But we have yet to see or hear anything from the executive branch, the only branch that can actually indict and prosecute Trump for the crimes the other two branches of government have concluded he committed.

Insurrectionist Dustin Thompson Testifies he was following Trump''s Orders, Jury Finds Him Guilty
Quote
A Washington DC jury just convicted Capitol attacker Dustin Thompson on all six counts for storming the US Capitol on January 6 to stop the certification of Joe Biden's election win. Thompson testified that he was following then-President Donald Trump's express orders. The problem for Thompson is that "following presidential orders" is not a legal defense to his crimes. But it IS evidence that can be introduced against Donald Trump in the future in the event he is indicted for inciting the insurrection.

As Georgia Grand Jury Investigation into Trump Proceeds, Trump Co-conspirator Eastman Keeps Criming
Quote
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution just broke a story about the progress and timing of the grand jury investigation into Donald Trump's Georgia state election crimes. In another development, the New York Times reported about the ongoing efforts of attorney John Eastman and others to overturn the results of the 2020 prestidential election, even AFTER a federal judge ruled it is "more likely than not" that Trump and Eastman were members of a criminal conspiracy to overturn the election's results.

This raises a fundamental question: how can Eastman and others continue their corrupt efforts even after their earlier crimes have been exposed? The only answer is that the lack of accountability for past crimes encourages them to commit future crimes.

This video discusses the balance that prosecutors must strike between investigating cases fully and thoroughly and arresting/indicting people to deter future crime, protect society and preserve our democracy.

Mandel was aggressive in both seeking Trump’s endorsement and in repeating the former president’s false claims that the 2020 election was stolen, despite the thorough debunking of all such claims. Mandel also had robust support from the Club for Growth, a pro-business advocacy group that spent more than $7 million promoting him and running negative ads against his rivals, and the endorsement of Texas Sen.

Quote
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who had final jurisdiction on the congresswoman’s eligibility, accepted the ruling of a judge Friday that will allow Greene to seek reelection. A group of voters in her district made the case that she could not run again for office under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, a Civil War-era clause that bars from public office anyone who has aided in an insurrection or rebellion.

Administrative Law Judge Charles Beaudrot made the recommendation that she remain on the ballot Friday afternoon, and Raffensperger confirmed that decision shortly after. Raffensperger was not expected to remove Greene, who is popular in her conservative northwest Georgia district and among Trump supporters nationwide.
...
“In this case, Challengers assert that Representative Greene’s political statements and actions disqualify her from office,” Raffensperger’s decision said. “That is rightfully a question for the voters of Georgia’s 14th Congressional District.”

In other words, rule of law does not matter to rightists.

Quote
Similar efforts to use the Jan. 6 fallout to prevent other House members from reelection have also failed. An Arizona judge threw out a measure to ban Republican Reps. Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar, as well as state Rep. Mark Finchem (who is running for Arizona secretary of state) last month, and efforts against Reps. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) and Jim Banks (R-IN) failed as well.

All this is part of the continuing coup. Everyone who votes for any of these politicians are part of the coup.

Ginni Thomas' Emails Deepen Her Involvement In 2020 Election

Virginia "Ginni" Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and a conservative political activist, urged Republican lawmakers in Arizona after the 2020 presidential election to choose their own slate of electors, arguing that results giving now President Joe Biden a victory in the state were marred by fraud. The revelations first published by The Washington Post on Friday show that Thomas was more involved than previously known in efforts, based on unsubstantiated claims of fraud, to overturn President Biden's victory and keep then-President Donald Trump in office. #ginnithomas #election #emails #newsy

The January 6th Committee hearings in June are going to be big.

But will there be any consequences for the coup organizers?

Quote
    "We now have evidence to support the story of the worst presidential political offense against the Union in American history," Raskin tweeted Friday. "The [January 6th Committee] hearings in June will expose every facet of the assault against our democracy and Constitution on 1/6."

    "No president has ever come close to doing what happened here in terms of trying to organize an inside coup to overthrow an election and bypass the constitutional order," Raskin said at an event on Thursday, according to NBC.

https://www.newsweek.com/jamie-raskin-says-june-hearings-will-expose-every-facet-insurrection-1702364

Quote
    “Well, people still have not yet fully understood the distinction between the violent insurrection and the attempted coup. Even with the insurrection, even within the insurrectionary violence, a lot of people think that this was just a rowdy demonstration that got out of hand,” Raskin told Daily Kos.

    [...]

    “So there’s a lot of confusion about what took place. And I think people will come to understand that this was a premeditated and coordinated violent attack on Congress and the vice president in order to thwart the counting of electoral votes,” Raskin said.

    But the insurrection is only comprehensible when you understand that it was unleashed as a way to assist this political coup, this inside political coup. Donald Trump and his entourage had been looking for ways to overthrow the 2020 presidential election results for months,” Raskin said.

    What the public hearings will do is tell the story of “every step in that process,” he explained.

    “And it is a harrowing and gripping and utterly sobering story rooted in the events of the day and the weeks before it,” he added.

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2022/4/20/2092837/-Who-cares-about-an-insurrection-An-interview-with-Jan-6-investigator-Jamie-Raskin

Note that Raskin is on the January 6th Committee and was previously one of the people who put together the evidence during Trump's Senate trial for the Insurrection. In all likelihood, he has been authorized by the Committee to make such comments to the press.

His characterization of the coup attempt agrees with ours on almost every key point:
Quote
Like us, he agrees that (1) the Republican Party is operating "outside the constitutional order", (2) the 2020 election coup attempt was bigger than the Insurrection and rioting, (3) the 2020 coup attempt was a political coup organized by Republicans at least months prior to January 6th itself, (4) the Republican Party recently declaring that coup attempts are "legitimate political discourse" for their party is something to take extremely seriously, and (5) Republicans are going to attempt more coups if they are not held accountable. Raskin also agrees that Trump confessed to the coup attempt a few months ago.

Georgia DA Could Bury Trump With His Own Words, Says Former Fed Prosecutor
...
To charge Trump with a crime, Willis will “need what everyone else who is investigating the former president’s involvement in election fraud or outright election criminality needs — proof of the former president’s state of mind,” Joyce Vance, a former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama, said on MSNBC’s “The Katie Phang Show” Sunday.

Willis “has a good case walking in the door to that grand jury because she’s got the tape” of Trump soliciting votes after the election, Vance added.

Trump called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger ahead of the official vote certification, telling him to “find” enough votes to change his loss to Joe Biden in the state into a victory. “Fellas, I need 11,000 votes. Give me a break,” Trump pleaded on the call, which Raffensperger recorded.

The call is particularly damning, Vance said, because Trump is “asking not for an investigation into potential voting fraud, not for a look to see whether something went wrong, but he’s asking” Raffensperger simply to “find him the specific number of votes that he needs” to make him a winner.

“That’s pretty good evidence of criminal intent walking into it,”
and Willis will rely on witnesses to “put some flesh on the bones,” Vance added.


Meanwhile, the coup continues:

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/trump-former-lawyer-recruiting-wing-160439659.html

Quote
Cleta Mitchell, one of a handful of lawyers who attempted to get the 2020 presidential election overturned on behalf of then-President Donald Trump in part by making baseless allegations of fraud, is now working with right-wing organizations to recruit an “army of citizens” in order to monitor elections, The New York Times detailed in a report Monday.
...
The nature of Mitchell’s work “promotes particularly aggressive methods — with a focus on surveillance — that appear intended to feed on activists’ distrust and create pressure on local officials, rather than ensure voters’ access to the ballot,” the report states. Her organizing efforts in Virginia, for instance, have supported a coalition that includes a group that favors the hand-counting of ballots. That group, Virginians for Americans First, was financed by Patrick Byrne, a major figure in Trump allies’ fundraising schemes based off false election fraud claims.

Speaking to more than 150 activists in Pennsylvania recently, Mitchell described the motivations for her work: “We are taking the lessons we learned in 2020 and we are going forward to make sure they never happen again.”
...
Mitchell has worked on activist outreach with Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, through the Council for National Policy, a conservative networking group, the report notes. Thomas herself worked to have the 2020 election results overridden, as she contacted not only the Trump White House and Republican members of Congress with pleas to ignore the will of the people, but GOP state lawmakers in Arizona as well.

It was Mitchell who, having been selected by Trump in August 2020 to lead lawsuits after the election, brought onboard lawyer John Eastman. A memo Eastman composed in which he instructed then-Vice President Mike Pence to reject electors from battleground states like Arizona where Joe Biden had won was clearly illegal, a judge ruled in March. Like Thomas, Eastman contacted state GOP legislators — this time in Pennsylvania — claiming they could just toss out valid absentee ballots.

Mitchell was also on the January 2021 phone call in which Trump urged Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger to “find” enough votes to ensure that Biden did not come out on top.

Exactly as we have been warning, unless they are stopped, they will keep trying until they succeed. And they are openly admitting it.

A judge has ruled a coup memo was "likely" evidence of a criminal conspiracy:
https://authenticamericandream.blogspot.com/2022/05/the-coup-memos.html#Chesebro


Quote
Read the Trump-world legal memo that a judge ruled was likely part of a criminal effort to overturn the election.
    [...]
    Chesebro's memo became public last week as a little-noticed exhibit in a legal battle between the Jan. 6 select committee and John Eastman, who conferred with Chesebro about that last-ditch strategy to delay or prevent the certification of Biden’s election. U.S. District Court Judge David Carter described the memo in his March ruling as perhaps “the first time members of President Trump’s team transformed a legal interpretation of the Electoral Count Act” — the law that governs the transition of power — into a day-by-day plan of action.” Carter wrote in his opinion that this memo “likely furthered the crimes of obstruction of an official proceeding and conspiracy to defraud the United States.” He ordered it released to the select committee under the "crime-fraud" exception to attorney client privilege.

    The strategy: The plan offered by Chesebro depended on the existence of competing slates of presidential electors in a handful of states where Biden won the popular vote. In fact, just a day after Chesebro sent his memo to Giuliani, pro-Trump activists gathered in several state capitals and signed documents falsely claiming to be the true presidential electors from their states.

As I keep saying, the coup is not just the politicians, but also the base:

https://us.yahoo.com/finance/news/capitol-riot-apologists-unpunished-memories-120019978.html

Quote
Less than a year after the attack, a poll showed more than half of Republican voters opposed continuing to identify and prosecute the people who carried it out.
...
Just after the riot, two-thirds of Republican voters said the presidential election results were marred by widespread fraud. Three-quarters of Republicans without a college degree held that view, according to a January 2021 poll by the center-right American Enterprise Institute. Half of Republicans said the left-wing group Antifa was mostly responsible for violence at the Capitol, a discredited theory advanced by some conservative commentators. Those views have hardened with time.

Executing all the politicians who have participated in any aspect of the coup is better than doing nothing, but it will not be enough. New politicians will rise from the base to take their places. Unless the base itself is eradicated, the coup will just keep going until it succeeds.

Fox News confirmed it will not broadcast or provide full live coverage on the first public hearing on the Jan 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, which is set for June 9 in primetime. The long-awaited hearing will take place at the same time as Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity’s usual slots, but the company said that it will cover the hearing only ‘as news warrants’ in a press release. Instead, it will broadcast the hearing on its business network, with Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum set to offer live coverage.

Fox News’ disinterest in comprehensively covering the January 6 hearings is unsurprising but noteworthy, given the breathless, nonstop coverage they have lent to other political investigations in the past of much lesser magnitude, such as Benghazi.

‘Fox News ran 1,098 primetime segments on Benghazi from the day of the attack until the committee hearings, which they carried live for more than 7 hours. Today they announced they won’t cover the hearings on the January 6th insurrection,’ said Sawyer Hackett, a Democratic communications strategist, in a tweet on Monday.

Bannon Subpoenas Pelosi And Jan. 6 Panel In Attempt To Hit Back At Contempt Charges
Quote
Former Trump White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has reportedly subpoenaed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and members of the committee in an attempt to push back at the contempt charges he faces, according to CNN. Bannon is scheduled to go on trial next month in the contempt charges the Justice Department brought against him last year for failing to cooperate with the Jan. 6 Select Committee’s investigation.

Late last year, Bannon was charged with two counts of contempt of Congress follow his refusal to comply with the committee’s subpoena. Bannon pleaded not guilty.

In an effort to fight the contempt charges he’s facing, Bannon’s legal team reportedly subpoenaed 15 lawmakers and congressional staffers to testify at his trial next month, one of Bannon’s attorneys and copies of the subpoenas obtained by CNN indicated. The subpoenas reportedly target all nine members of the committee, three committee staffers and House general counsel Douglas Letter. Additionally, Bannon reportedly subpoenaed Pelosi and other House Democratic leaders such as Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC).

Ahead of the first public House hearings on the insurrection, former President Donald Trump on Thursday defended his "Save America" rally on January 6, 2021, which morphed into the Capitol riot, calling it "the greatest movement in the history of our Country."
...
Trump continues to falsely claim that he won the 2020 election and that there was "massive" voter fraud, despite even some of his top advisors admitting that Joe Biden won. The former president also repeated his debunked claim that he ordered 10,000 National Guard troops to protect the Capitol. He increased the number to 20,000 in his statement.

"The Unselect Committee has now learned that I, as President, suggested & offered up to 20,000 National Guard, or troops, be deployed in D.C. because it was felt that the crowd was going to be very large," Trump wrote.

The Washington Post found no evidence of such an order as far back as December.
...
Further evidence also shows that those troops may not have protected just the Capitol. Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff at the time, wrote in a January 5, 2021, email that Guard members were on standby to "protect pro-Trump people."

After enabling Trump's lawlessness for years, Pence did the bare minimum on 1/6. But he's no hero
Quote
We have long known that Donald Trump, together with one of his corrupt attorneys John Eastman, were pressuring former Vice President Mike Pence to refuse to certify Joe Biden's election win on January 6, ruching him to put the wheels in motion for Trump to be installed for a second presidential term contrary to the will of the American voters.

Based on some new reporting by Politico, we now know that Mike Pence's top lawyer, Greg Jacob, had authored a memo setting out how Pence would violate the law, specifically the Electoral Count Act, if he gave in to Trump's pressure and threats, and refused to perform his constitutional duty on Jan. 6 while presiding over the count of the electoral votes.

Jacob is scheduled to appear and testify in the January 6 select committee public hearings in the coming days.

This video discusses why Mike Pence may have abided by the law on Jan. 6, but he is far from a hero.

Quote
The news that multiple House Republicans asked the Trump White House for pardons – an apparent consciousness of guilt – was one of three revelations portending potentially perilous legal and political moments to come for Trump and his allies.
...
The extraordinary claim also raised the prospect that the Republican members of Congress seeking clemency believed Trump’s election fraud claims were baseless: for why would they need pardons if they really were only raising legitimate questions about the election.

“It’s hard to find a more explicit statement of consciousness of guilt than looking for a pardon for actions you’ve just taken, assisting in a plan to overthrow the results of a presidential election,” Jamie Raskin, a member of the select committee, told reporters.
...
The disclosure about the pardons came during the opening hour of the hearing where the panel made the case that Trump could not credibly believe he had won the 2020 election after some of his most senior advisors told him repeatedly that he had lost to Joe Biden.

Trump, according to videos of closed-door depositions played by the select committee, was told by his data experts he lost the election, told by former attorney general Bill Barr that his election fraud claims were “bullshit”, a conclusion Ivanka Trump said she accepted.

The admissions by some of Trump’s top aides are important since they could put federal prosecutors one step closer to being able to charge Trump with obstructing an official proceeding or defrauding the United States on the basis of election fraud claims he knew were false.

All reasonable. And how does Bannon respond?

So far, the January 6th hearings haven't really told us anything major we didn't already know. They are very much a condensed narrative.

I guess the media has been granted permission to once again call the coup attempt a coup attempt, though? There is no reason for anyone to hold back now that the Committee themselves has officially declared it a coup attempt, and implied the Insurrection was a treasonous act.


Summary of the hearings:

This hearing is worth listening to (at least until you get the gist of what Greg Jacob is saying).
https://authenticamericandream.blogspot.com/2022/06/january-6th-committee-hearings-day-3-june-16-summary.html


Greg Jacob was Pence's lawyer and was with him during January 6th. He was also the primary person on Pence's team who researched the legality of whether Pence could overturn the election.

Jacob discussed with John Eastman numerous times, and Eastman and Trump were aware the plot to overthrow the election was illegal.


There was also testimony from retired conservative judge Michael Luttig. As far as I can tell, it is a pretty big deal for a conservative judge of his standing to take such a firm and public position on the coup attempt. It is better to read his statements than to listen to him speak. Most importantly, he warns the coup attempt currently being prepared for 2024 is a major threat to America:

Quote
"I have written, as you said, Chairman Thompson, that today, almost two years after that fateful day in January 2021, that still, Donald Trump and his allies and supporters are a clear and present danger to American democracy. That's not because of what happened on January 6th. It's because, to this very day, the former President, his allies, and supporters pledge that in the presidential election of 2024, if the former president or his anointed successor as the Republican Party presidential candidate were to lose that election, that they would attempt to overturn that 2024 election in the same way that they attempted to overturn the 2020 election, but succeed in 2024 where they failed in 2020.

I don't speak those words lightly. I would have never spoken those words ever in my life, except that that's what the former president and his allies are telling us. As I said in that New York Times op-ed, wherein I was speaking about the Electoral Count Act of 1887, the former president and his allies are executing that blueprint for 2024 in open and plain view of the American public. I repeat, I would have never uttered one single one of those words, unless the former president and his allies were candidly and proudly speaking those exact words to America."


Lastly, the Proud Boys had genuine plans to kill Pence and others.

Quote
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans in Texas formally rejected President Joe Biden's election in 2020 as illegitimate and voted in a state-wide convention that wrapped up this weekend on a party platform that calls homosexuality an "abnormal lifestyle choice."
...
"We reject the certified results of the 2020 presidential election, and we hold that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States," the Texas party said in a resolution, passed in a voice vote at its convention.

Texas is a major player in U.S. national politics, with 38 electoral votes, the second highest after California. Voters there have backed Republican presidents for the past four decades.
...
According to a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll, about two-thirds of Republicans believe the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump. State and federal judges dismissed more than 50 lawsuits brought by Trump and his allies challenging the election while reviews and audits found no evidence of widespread fraud.

https://us.yahoo.com/news/trump-lunged-for-steering-wheel-on-jan-6-demanded-to-be-taken-to-us-capitol-ex-aide-testifies-184557713.html

Quote
Following a Jan. 6, 2021 speech to thousands of his supporters in Washington, former President Donald Trump angrily demanded that his staff take him to the U.S. Capitol to press his efforts to block the certification of his election loss to Joe Biden, a former White House aide testified Tuesday.
...
as the president had gotten into the vehicle with Bobby, he thought that they were going up to the Capitol, and when Bobby had relayed to him that 'We're not, we don't have the assets to do it. It's not secure. We're going back to the West Wing,' the president had [a] very strong, very angry response to that. Tony described him as being irate. The president said something to the effect of 'I'm the effing president. Take me up to the Capitol now!' To which Bobby responded, 'Sir, we have to go back to the West Wing.'"

Earlier in her testimony, Hutchinson described how White House lawyers had refused to sign off on a plan for Trump to travel "off-the-record," and drive from the rally to the Capitol, saying that this departure from the president's official schedule would result in them getting "charged with every crime imaginable.”

Trump, however, was undeterred, and escalated the situation inside the limousine, Hutchinson testified.

"The president reached up to the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. Mr. Engel grabbed his arm, said, 'Sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. We're going back to the West Wing. We're not going to the Capitol.' Mr. Trump then used his free hand to lunge toward Bobby Engel, and when Mr. Ornato had recounted this story to me, he motioned to his clavicles."

Engel, who had been listening to Ornato's retelling of events, did not correct any part of the account, Hutchinson said.

The point I want to emphasize related to this is that it debunks the popular False Left narrative that Trump told his supporters to march on the Capitol without any intention of going himself. The False Left thinks it can win back Trump supporters by portraying Trump as someone who has no emotional connection with his supporters, and is 100% cynically grifting. This reveals a fundamental failure by False Leftists to understand rightist psychology. Trump gets off on crowd worship. He wanted to go to the Capitol to receive more of that crowd worship. It is that simple.

https://twitter.com/January6thCmte/status/154184064367642624

Quote
Trump was furious the Secret Service was screening people at his rally for weapons.

"They're not here to hurt me. Take the F'ing mags away. Let my people in. They can march to the Capitol from here."

Yes, Trump is a grifter. But he is also "white". False Leftists do not understand the second part. Thus to this day they underestimate the danger Trumpism poses. It will not pass. It will not dissipate. Either we physically exterminate all the Trumpists or they eventually they win.

Former Mueller prosecutor has major issues with Merrick Garland’s Jan. 6 investigation
Quote
Weissmann, in his Times op-ed, had a lot to say about two separate investigations of the January 6, 2021 insurrection: the one conducted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 select committee, and the investigation being conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice under Attorney General Merrick Garland. As Weissmann sees it, Garland — in light of all the revelations the committee has presented during its series of hearings — needs to be more aggressive.

In his Times op-ed, Weissmann wrote, “The tenacious work of the Jan. 6 committee has transformed how we think about the Jan. 6 rebellion. It should also transform the Justice Department’s investigation into efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Before the hearings, federal agents and prosecutors were performing a classic ‘bottom up’ criminal investigation of the Jan. 6 rioters, which means prosecuting the lowest-ranking members of a conspiracy, flipping people as it proceeds and following the evidence as high as it goes…. But that is actually the wrong approach for investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection. That approach sees the attack on the Capitol as a single event — an isolated riot, separate from other efforts by Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the election.”

Trump releases statement admitting his scheme to overturn the 2020 election

As the Jan. 6 select committee presented damning evidence of Donald Trump allowing his violent coup attempt to continue for 187 minutes, Donald Trump basically admitted to seditious conspiracy on his Truth Social website.

In his statement, Trump admitted he wanted Vice President Mike Pence to reject the valid electors in multiple states in violation of the Constitution.

And then he went on to admit the goal was to overturn the 2020 presidential election, which was won by Joe Biden.

"This may have proven to be an election-changing event," Trump admitted before attacking Biden.

"What a difference it would have made if state legislatures had another crack at looking at all of the fraud, abuse, and irregularities that have been found," Trump said, even though all his delusions had been thoroughly debunked and laughed out of court by Jan. 6.

Walorski voted against the second impeachment of Donald Trump[33] and voted to object to the certification of the 2020 United States presidential election.[34][35]

Walorski supported Trump's 2017 executive order to impose a temporary ban on entry to the U.S. to citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries, saying she believed it would "allow our national security officials to examine the vetting process and strengthen safeguards to prevent terrorists from entering our homeland."[50]
...
In December 2020, Walorski was one of 126 Republican members of the House of Representatives to sign an amicus brief in support of Texas v. Pennsylvania, a lawsuit filed at the United States Supreme Court contesting the results of the 2020 presidential election, in which Joe Biden defeated Trump.[51]

That more coup supporters have since died in accidents than have been executed for treason is testimony to the lack of a functioning state in the present-day US.

Bannon, now the host of the “War Room” podcast, brought his bellicose message to CPAC, appearing as the headline speaker at the convention’s Friday night ball. “We are at war,” Bannon told the MAGA faithful. “We are in a political and ideological war.” Repeating the Big Lie that the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump, Bannon insisted that Joe Biden is an “illegitimate imposter.” Calling on Republicans to send “shock troops” to Washington, Bannon promised the crowd they had an opportunity to “shatter the Democratic party as a national political institution.” He alleged that the party has been overrun by “radical, cultural Marxists” and “groomers” who “want to destroy the Republic.” Bannon insisted the GOP must pursue absolute victory over “power-mad and lawless” Democrats, asserting: “There can be no half measures anymore.”
...
Posobiec took his turn in the spotlight to promote the New Right (effectively the latest rebranding of the hateful “alt-right”). And he, too, painted the coming conflicts of the culture war in militaristic terms: “Are you ready for new ideas to actually take the fight to the front lines,” he asked, “because that’s where we live and we’re not stopping.”
...
Kari Lake, the GOP nominee for governor in Arizona, directly threatened confrontation with the federal government over immigration at the Southern border should she win office in November.

“We have an invasion at the border,” Lake insisted, referring to undocumented immigrants and refugees. Lake then vowed that, after being sworn in, she would mount a military response, even lacking approval from the Biden administration: “As soon as my hand comes off the Bible, we’re going to send the Arizona National Guard troops to the border,” Lake said. Insisting on the “sovereignty” of the states, she insisted: “We will take the fight to the federal government. We’re not going to be victims of what they’re doing to us.”
...
While damning the Democrats in terms that seemed to encourage political violence, CPAC speakers consistently minimized the actual political violence perpetrated by the MAGA movement on Jan. 6. Avowed “Christian nationalist” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), for example, slammed Liz Cheney — chair of the committee investigating the Capitol insurrection — for pushing a “lie about Jan. 6.”
...
Driving home this down-is-up worldview of justice — insisting that participants in an attempted coup directed by former President Trump are being mistreated by the justice system that’s attempting to hold them to account — the CPAC convention hall also presented a novel performance art installation.

It featured a caged man in an orange jumpsuit — meant to symbolize the Jan. 6 defendants — weeping over the injustice of his incarceration while wearing a MAGA hat. Convention attendees could don headphones to listen to testimonials from actual alleged rioters. This already-surreal scene got turned up to 11 in the late afternoon, when Greene spotted the installation and entered the jail cell to comfort and pray with the actor portraying the weeping man.

Armed Man Who Was At Capitol On Jan. 6 Is Fatally Shot After Firing Into An FBI Field Office In Ohio
Quote
A man entered the visitor screening area of the FBI field office in Cincinnati this morning, wielding an AR-15 style weapon and a nail gun, which he fired at people in the office, according to law enforcement sources. The gunman then fled in his car onto the interstate, leading to a chase and eventually to a standoff in a corn field that lasted for hours. The incident comes just days after the FBI searched former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. The gunman’s motive is unknown.

Leftists lacked the motivation to do the same to ICE/CBP offices despite their daily atrocities ongoing year after year:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/enemies/ice/

But the FBI merely searching Mar-a-Lago gave rightists enough motivation to shoot up an FBI office. This is a good indicator of the extent of the motivational gulf between leftists and rightists, which should worry us.

Republicans Rally Around Trump, While Election Deniers Are Winning Primaries

Following the FBI's search of Mar-a-Lago, elected Republicans are rallying around the former President while election deniers are winning primary races around the country -- and many of them are routinely spewing lies about the 2020 election.

I feel like many American's have buried their head in the sand so-to-speak and have told themselves Trumpism is just a phase that will pass, so that they may sleep better at night. We have actually been warning that Trumpism is not a phase that will pass long before Trump was even elected. Trumpists are here to stay. No argument, no matter how good it sounds in a good persons mind, will detour Trumpists from the path they have chosen to walk down. The only thing Trump supporters understand at this point is the language of force and violence. At this juncture in history I feel 90SRF is absolutely correct in his calculation that the only way out for leftists from this mess is the extermination of rightists. It's not an enjoyable opinion to express, but I feel that it's closer to the truth than most people's analysis these days.

Armed Trump supporters gathered outside Phoenix FBI office
Quote
A group of approximately 25 people gathered outside of an FBI office in Phoenix. Some in the group were armed and wearing tactical gear. CNN has reached out to the FBI Phoenix field office for comment. Phoenix Police Department Sgt. Phil Krynsky told CNN “the group was peaceful and there are no incidents to report.” #CNN #News

"Ideological subversion" is what it is. No argument has the power to undo the subversion of the subverted. Will genuine leftists understand this in time to save themselves and America?

Why waste resources on keeping them alive? Better to exterminate them and have resources for an extra 75 million climate refugees.

'Where is Nancy?': Assailant shouted before attacking Pelosi's husband, source says

National Socialists were socialists! National Socialists openly fought against rightists in the streets of Germany. You're setting yourselves up for failure in the face of rightism when you do not understand history accurately!

Case in point:
Quote
Adam Something
1 hour ago (edited)
So today there was an assassination attempt on Nancy Pelosi, Democrat speaker of the US House. Make no mistake, there will be more and more events like these as the Republicans shift further towards the far-right. Their ranks will be filled with the likes of Greene and Boebert, who will keep encouraging domestic terrorism more and more openly.

This of course didn't come from nowhere. For the US, this is the ultimate chicken coming back to roost. And I doubt US democracy will survive it.

The primary reason I think is the unresolved history with the Confederacy, and the consequences thereof. The Confederacy, a traitorous breakaway slave state, is still openly celebrated by tens of millions. Some schools to this day still teach falsehoods about it, like the Lost Cause myth, where the evil North attacked the peaceful, noble, virtuous South for no good reason.
There are groups like the United Daughters of the Confederacy to this day, operating without any hindrance out in the open.

Can you imagine the same thing in Germany? If there was still a Nazi culture celebrated by millions. If certain schools taught that World War 2 as a war of Anglo-American agression, against peaceful Germany merely wanting its Lebensraum it deserved. If groups like "Sons of the Third Reich" were still a part of German culture. If people still flew the Nazi flag en-masse, calling it "tradition". Also if far-right parties held half the seats, and there was already a coup attempt on the Reichstag.

That's the situation America is in right now, teetering on the edge of Fascism. Should it pass the threshold, nothing short of a pro-Democracy military coup could save the country.

As things stand now, America looks more and more like a failed experiment. The haphazard system of conventions, gentlemens' agreements, regionalism and first past the post voting coupled with Capitalism run amok is too vulnerable and cumbersome against malicious actors like MAGA politicians. The latter can paralyze the entire political system by refusing to govern via obstructionism, thus help pre-empt any countermeasures against them.

Hopefully the non-MAGA political elite and the non-Republican majority will recognize the danger as cases of assassination attempts and domestic terrorism mount, though if Republicans gain power beforehand it might not matter in the end.

These are my first, not fully formed thoughts on the matter. Once I figure out my positions I'll be doing a video about this.

EDIT: the reason why the assassin got into the house is because only Nancy Pelosi gets security, her husband doesn't if he's alone at home. The security detail moves with Nancy Pelosi.

Quote
David DePape, 42, was identified by police Friday as the suspect in the assault on Paul Pelosi at the speaker's San Francisco home.
...
Last year, David DePape posted links on his Facebook page to multiple videos produced by My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell falsely alleging that the 2020 election was stolen. Other posts included transphobic images
...
DePape also posted links to YouTube videos with titles like "Democrat FARCE Commission to Investigate January 6th Capitol Riot COLLAPSES in Congress!!!" and "Global Elites Plan To Take Control Of YOUR Money! (Revealed)"

Two days after former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of killing George Floyd, DePape wrote that the trial was "a modern lynching," falsely indicating that Floyd died of a drug overdose.
...
In earlier years, DePape also posted long screeds about religion, including claims that "Jesus is the anti christ."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attack_on_Paul_Pelosi#Accused

Quote
In the lead-up to his attack, he promoted QAnon and other far-right conspiracy theories on his WordPress.com blog attacking "The elites/ruling class", "immigrants, people of color, women, LGBTQ people and Muslims."[14] DePape made posts with headlines such as "Communist Voodoo science," "Feminist gets owned.", and "The woke are Racists with a guilty conscience".[14]
