Here Comes the Crackdown

After the Capitol protest/riot occurred, I said to my colleagues the folks on the left will use it to go after President Donald Trump, Republicans and Trump supporters in general. They will use it to justify a crack down on social media and other arenas. That’s already coming to pass and it only happened yesterday. They’re calling to ban anyone who went into the building from plane travel. From Washington Examiner: “Given the heinous domestic terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol yesterday, I am urging the Transportation Security Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to use their authorities to add the names

Will they do that to everyone arrested for riotng in the blue cities and states? If not, that's not equal justice under the law and would amount to s political prosecution.

This is exactly what the Chinese government is doing to the people in Hong Kong. They just recently arrested 59 politicians and staff for undermining the government election policy. They have also arrested thousands of student demonstrators and leaders for inciting alleged violence against the government. Sounds familiar?

How about the hundreds of antifa thugs who burned down whole sections of several cities? Thus is a purely political witch hunt.

Gettysburg was the turning point of the first Civil War. All because a Confederate victory there would have meant DC would have fallen. Seems more than appropriate that DC should be ground zero for the last battle for the USA. Less than 600 people have sold out the country of 300 million. I can't believe that will be the end of this great nation. IF there is an uprising against what is coming, I hope it includes the liars in the media who covered up for the rats and who pushed the rat brainwashing year after year. Everyone will have to decide what is worth fighting for and Oath takers will have to decide if they are going to protect obvious evil. Some are gleefully siding with them now, so don't count on anything but misery from this coup.

The degree to which they are screaming with outrage, and banning everything Trump, and gaslighting with propaganda, and clamping down on conservatives is the degree to which they are guilty of stealing the election and betraying their country. This is their all-out, hold nothing back, last minute blitzkrieg to finally destroy Trump and to cover up their odious crimes. Total power is within their grasp. And they are succeeding.

I’m old enough to have seen political winds change direction many times. The stink in Washington crosses both aisles. Cheer up. The Biden Administration will be the most corrupt, incompetent clown show we’ve seen yet. The Republicans will then have to find a way to win back the voters they betrayed and stabbed in the back. And so it goes.

We can begin to let those in D.C. that we have no intention of going away by backing Josh Hawley. Do not buy anything published by Simon and Schuster. They will feel it! You can't ignore 72 million people! We need to begin pushing back by putting our money where our mouth is! Also, get off of Twtter and Facebook. We don't need to support Zuckerberg, who financed this fraudulent win for Biden. Go to Parler!

I don't think I can read news and commentary anymore. It's more shocking and frightening every day. It seems wrong that the whole country should be taken over by these communists - or whatever they are - when giant swaths of any election map are red. Which governors are going to stand up for their states and citizens? How about if we decline to let rabid democrats live in red cities/towns/counties? Voting isn't the solution, as that obviously doesn't work anymore. So, what then?

Republicans/conservatives are out of their element, and it's time to make that element theirs. That element is militantism and enforcement. Politically it can only come when those UNIPARTY false flag "Republicans" are removed from office...preferably by the good sense of good citizens at the ballot box. Eff the "Buckley Rule". No more "Vote for the Republican" because this entire era clearly proves that is a false choice with the UNIPARTY. No more holding noses, knowing better. How many here were boosting Romney, for example, acting the enforcer fools? No Fox News favorite will be the answer, either. Turn that crap off. Start at your local and state levels, where the gains are more immediate because these parties often operate in a vacuum of leadership. Summon some courage, attend meeting, speak up, and run for office. (I'd bet dozens of precinct chairs in your area are empty or inert...take them! Do something!!) In those six "controversial" states start RECALL. Get out there with petitions. Make these bastards pay for their dereliction of Constitutional duty. And for any recall there should be one issue: Election integrity and their failure to ensure that much. Stop supporting the UNIPARTY with money. Stop your auto contributions to anything associated with the Senate or House committees, or Mitch McConnell or Kevin McCarthy. Don't try telling me these are honest, honorable men. Those with freshman members of Congress or Senators, get on their arses. They may be salvagable given backing. Take the political route, and meanwhile stop the "water the liberty with blood" claptrap, mostly keyboard Rambos spouting, I suspect. I haven't seen any militia mustering. There will be plenty of time for these "patriots" to muster if Americans cannot restore their political situation otherwise.

Updated at 5:05 p.m. with response from Cruz and Hawley. WASHINGTON — In extraordinarily sharp remarks Friday, President-elect Joe Biden compared Sen. Ted Cruz to Hitler’s propaganda master in the way he peddled Donald Trump’s “big lie” about election fraud, though Biden stopped short of blaming Cruz for the riot by a pro-Trump mob at the Capitol as many Texas Democrats have done. Biden called Cruz’s effort “shameful.” The Texas Republican led an attempt in the Senate to block congressional certification of Biden’s victory in the Electoral College, insisting that widespread doubts about the legitimacy of the election demanded an emergency investigation to allay public concerns.

WASHINGTON — There were infamous white nationalists and noted conspiracy theorists who have spread dark visions of pedophile Satanists running the country. Others were more anonymous, people who had journeyed from Indiana and South Carolina to heed President Donald Trump’s call to show their support. One person, a West Virginia lawmaker, had only been elected to office in November.

Manchin, a moderate who will hold great sway in a Senate split 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans, made his views known even as the Biden team worked to develop a coronavirus relief package that would include new stimulus checks, extended unemployment benefits, and more.

He went down to Georgia and insulted everyone, refusing to talk about anything but himself. Based on his rally speech this week, Trump apparently thinks he won the November election because there was a red wave for everyone except him. How else could all those Republicans win congressional seats on his “coattails,” while he lost?

January 6th’s events are being seized on as a game-changer, leading to calls to invoke the 25th Amendment, calls to impeach and remove President Trump, and discrediting Trump, his supporters, and conservatism. It has distracted attention from issues around the legitimacy of voting procedures in several key states, and guaranteed the Electoral College vote just before 4 AM that ratified Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’s inauguration as president and vice president. Applying the classic legal question “cui bono?” (“who benefits?”), it is clear that Democrats, anti-Trump establishment Republicans, the leftist media, and TDS sufferers all are victorious.
