The Trump Movement As
We Knew It Ended Today

It’s often hard to understand the impact an event will have in the future when you are going through it in real time or soon after. Today’s storming of the Capitol, including rioting, is one of those real-time events about which I’m comfortable reaching some conclusions.(Snip)The fact that we have seen violent conduct from the left in recent years also directed at key institutions does not excuse it.(Snip) And yes, it’s possible (but not clear) that some of the violent rioters were outside agitators. Politics is not fair, and it’s never been more unfair than how Trump supporters are treated by the media.


Professor Jacobson had no problem with litigating election disputes, but contends that none of the challenges were upheld so it became time to move to more productive action which did not happen. He holds firm to the belief that Vice President Pence could not simply reject electoral votes based on the clear wording of the Constitution. At this point he is not certain whether or not President Trump’s alliance can hold together and/or by whom, and speculates that some Trump supporters, “maybe even the majority,” things have become too much.

We do not like to be 'led'. We have defaulted to being 'herded'. Our 'leaders' understand that. Trump did not.

So just because the left does it and gets away with it is no reason for Trump protesters to do the same. And yes it's probable that some of the so called Trump protestors were actually blm and antifa but that's still no excuse for today's behavior. Did I get that right?

#8, show me some video of ANY violence by one of the protesters, if you can. I won't claim there was none, but I looked at many videos, and I saw not the slightest hint of any violence, just an unwillingness to obey the cops, and a push to get inside the Capitol. Walking steadily, refusing to be stopped by flimsy fencing and cops saying "you can't go in there". I saw one cop do one single one second squirt of something, likely pepper spray, and then the cops walked off, falling back. Nobody hit anybody that I saw. The only documented violence I have seen was the cop shooting an unarmed young lady, for no apparent reason. Were there antifa in the group? I don't know for sure, but I would not be surprised at all if there were. I didn't see any violence from anyone, though. So, if they were antifa present.....did they do anything violent? Did anyone? Anyone who has a link to actual violence in a video, I'd like to see it. So far, I saw none.

No, what ended today was our constitutional Republic. We are seeing the end-game of a coup. Trump is surrounded. No matter which way he turns, there is a back-stabber. The election was stolen, but somehow that doesn't matter because a few idiots got out of hand, probably egged on by Antifa instigators? If the woman murdered by a cop had been black and the rioters Leftists, she would have become a martyr, and held up as proof of the justice of their cause.

I think I can tell the difference in a Trump supporter versus an Antifa member by their appearance after watching months of our cities being burned down and hundreds of Trump rallies. The guy using a barrier to break a window or whatever he was doing with it was not a Trump supporter. So don't tell me there MAY have been some Antifa or BLM people in the crowd. BTW, I had trouble getting the word 'Antifa' to post. Are we not supposed to use that word?

Geez, Bill, everything today was "unacceptable" but a woman being shot dead by the police was merely a "consequence"? Seriously? And everything thrown at Trump and his supporters to date is merely "not fair" because that's simply how politics works? And yes, it’s possible (but not clear) that some of the violent rioters were outside agitators. It's clear, Bill. Clear as day because none of the antifa regulars showed up for what promised to be the mother of all protests. They were told to stay home and let the clandestine operators do the dirty work and get it all pinned on Trump. Who do you think told them that?

#14, I was there. The Trump supporters were NOT breaking windows. In fact, we picked up our trash in DC. We respected our nation's Capital. The protesters were disorderly and push over a flimsy fence and entered the capital, flew our flags from the balcony but they did NOT destroy anything. There were Antifa and I believe BLM supporters mixed in the crowd that would have created those problems. I saw on facebook the same guy was at a BLM riot that busted into the Capital. The answer to your question. Yes, Antifa and BLM were there trying to give the Trump protesters a bad name.

The people, and the left media, have 'elected' and will willingly support a political party that will do anything, legal or illegal, to stay in power, while the people, who will become poorer, will get bits and pieces of help, similar to welfare, but just enough to keep them from storming their strongholds.

So according to Jacobson, storming the Capitol Building, the alleged People's House is bad, but meanwhile inside the same building Congress is busy being part and parcel of a coup d'etat brought about by massive election fraud and is handing over the Federal Government to communists. But hey, as long as the the legal formalities are followed it is ok and basically you Trump idiots need to accept this overthrow of the government and move on. There is not one sentence is this surrender article referencing the fact that the Presidential and many Senate races were stolen by the communist death democrats as the reason so many people are deeply enraged and disenfranchised. He also uses the Constitution to justify Pence the Traitor Putz's cowardly actions but meanwhile the communist death democrats routinely ignore the Constitution. The Swamp runs deep in Jacobson.

In your Dreams, Mr. Jacobson. What happened to Republicans, in this Election, is the BEGINNING of an NEW PARTY. Trump may, or may not, become the Leader. Maybe it will be Don Trump, or some Republican who worked day and night to get Trump re-elected. One thing is for sure, We KNOW who will be allowed in this Party and who sat on their Hands and did nothing to stop this Fraudulent Election. Those in Congress who refused to take part yesterday are all on that NO List! Those who went on CNN and talked about there being NO Fraud, are on that NO List. Those Republicans, in any of the Battleground States, RUN by Republicans, who did not come forward with evidence of Fraud when they KNEW it was going on, will be on the NO List! Our New Party will be picky who we ALLOW in! We do not want Never Trumpers, Fake Republicans or Republicans who allowed Biden to become President. The sooner this Party begins to form, the better. We need to be up and running WAY before the Mid-Terms. Then before the next Presidential Election, we need to be on the Ballot as our OWN Party. I favor the Name Patriot Party, but I'm sure there other names others have in mind as well! Lets Roll!

President trump might not have executive power. But he still has the character, leadership and communication skills that won him two consecutive elections. Now he is free of burdens of office and the support of seventy five million defrauded and outraged citizens. The most potent political force Washington has seen in a long time. I see a king maker of 2022 and a candidate for 2024.

The Left/Democrats have been advocating and inciting violence for 4 years; but, that doesn't count. There have been riots promoted by the Left throughout the USA for 2 years, but, that doesn't count.Trump has been attacked every which way for 4+ years, but that doesn't count. A National election was just conducted in a fraudulent manner and stolen from Trump, but that doesn't count. ALL THAT COUNTS is the RIGHT finally resorting to the only thing the opposition knows, which is PROTEST. I expect it will continue, no matter what the Rhinos, the GOp whimps, the media, and the Democrats say or do. The chicken has come home to roost.

What do people expect from our side? Are we never to act out, express our anger? I have nothing to say about those who stormed the Capitol. If I were there, I might have joined them. We were told for years that when we write our electeds, we are to be respectful and nice--to get them to listen and be swayed. What did writing and calling do for us? What did voting in Republicans get us local, state, or federal? Four of the states in question have Republican majorities! We are clearly the majority in this country, but we got punked and beat by the minority, the elite. And now they rule over US, and there's nothing we can do. We can't rally and talk sweetly to them. Wish them well and hope they won't destroy US and our way of life? What?

The UNIPARTY and its sponsors proved with this that they are willing to go to any measure to destroy Trump and any following. Those pointing out the Reichstag fire had better understand that the wrong party took the blame when it mattered, and the propaganda took hold. We've seen this before with the Tea Party movement, except that was much easier to disrupt as naive patriots trusted their "conservative" made-by-FoxNews heroes, disregarding those fancy wrapped buses that lined the street signaling the big bux were gearing up to take over. The Tea Party went quietly into the night until it elected PDT. If that attempted eradication failed, the next four years showed growing desperation by the UNIPARTY, who rightly saw Trump as an existential threat. They threw kitchen sink after kitchen sink at him, his family and supporters, from rape and tawdry sex payoffs to impeachment. It all failed. This election was the UNIPARTY's last chance, and they took it...and won. That part if over. If Trump's movement is to survive it must attack REPUBLICANS at the state level, particularly those six "controversial" states whose legislatures failed their residents and all America. REMOVE those from office. ELECT new faces of reformers. Then let it rip... Go start a third party, or water the liberty tree with blood...all fool's errands. Rip up half the UNIPARTY and there's a chance. Just don't let the slicks stop you or the movement this time. And turn off Fox News and all the other polemicists.

FTA: "I had no problem with litigating election disputes, even if some of those disputes were suspect. Let the court process run its course, I advocated. But once that process had run out, and not a single judge, not even Trump appointed judges, upheld any challenges, it was time to move onto more productive action." THAT"S THE POINT, STUPID. Trump never had his day in court and never had any law enforcement investigation of any sort. The FBI spent more time investigating NASCAR's Bubba Wallace's fake noose. The Supreme Court denied Texas had standing to sue Pennsylvania for election theft, and that the PA Legislature had no standing either in the suit against PA. This was a railroad job, pure and simple. Millions of Americans who watched the Trump rally at the Capitol yesterday heard the magnitude, widespread prevalence, and the details of The Steal for the first time, because the LeftMedia has suppressed the facts. All they read or heard was "falsely claimed," and "without any evidence."

We had a slim chance with a Trump second turn to bring back an economy strong enough to stop the coming Depression and flushing of the US Dollar. People like this guy will be like the stunned Germans trying to buy food in about 1928. Not being dramatic, just drawing the inescapable conclusion to a mass invasion of parasites from the 3rd world and unrestrained looting by rats in DC. You think the 'shovel ready' fiasco of a Trillion made up dollars was bad, wait till the moron biden slams you with all the taxes Trump eliminated. All that pumped up money in the stock market will dissolve when companies have nothing to sell to busted American workers. The Rats will not allow jobs to return until they try and clamp down with their chinese advisors and 'citizen army.' Most workers are at the end of their rope now. Many will never, ever see a job under the rats. They told us this. Your jobs are never coming back, learn to code or something. Trump reversed all of that, but the rat media convinced lots of morons not to believe reality and said it wasn't true. The record economy of 2019 wasn't real, but a worthless dollar backed up by unbelievable debt and zero value, will be real. Guess what villains, we drop dead, the world's economy drops dead, including china which can chock on it's manufactured junk. A lot of fools are going to realize how stupid they were when the rats promises destroy their lives. I hope it starts with the media and ends up burning every liar in congress.

Hours after a violent mob of President Trump’s supporters breached the U.S. Capitol Building, forcing a lockdown and leaving four people dead, Congress reconvened to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election. Vice President Mike Pence, who presided over the vote count, formally announced the results of Biden’s 306-232 win over Trump in the Electoral College.(Snip)At 3:32 a.m. ET, Congress had certified enough electoral votes to surpass the 270 threshold that guaranteed Biden would become the 46th president, effectively ending a futile bid by Trump and his supporters to overturn the results of November’s election.

Now that the Georgia runoffs are over, let’s talk about Donald Trump. When we really needed all hands on deck in Georgia, Trump was a wrecking ball. 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?

A bill reintroduced in the House this week to create a commission to examine reparations for the African American descendants of slavery is being seen by many as an early test of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’ proclaimed commitment to tackling structural oppression. (Snip) “Given the role that Black people played in the election, getting him nominated and saving his campaign — there’s no reason they shouldn’t support this bill,” Mary Frances Berry, a professor of history at the University of Pennsylvania, said of Biden and Harris. “This is one of the best ways to make good

Beware, 75 million Trump voters.The media is calling for your ideological “cleansing” of Trump thought.In a column and tweet, ABC’s well-respected political director Rick Klein made the call after yesterday’s pro-Trump riots inside the halls of Congress.It is a sentiment throughout much of the political media and among Democrats who are also pointing an accusing finger at aides to President Trump who are resigning before their jobs end on Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day in 13 days. Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.

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.
