Why did the Capitol Police
fail to protect the Capitol?

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.

A Pyrrhic Victory at best. Now let's see the Utopia that they are going to give us now that they control all the levers of Power including the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Somehow, I in my 75 yrs have never seen it end well for communists, but then who knows what can come from this Brave New World. We already have the Ministry of Truth run by the major networks and Cable News so now it is just a matter of time for the Ministry of Love, I don't think Orwell imagined quite like this but he did fear the bureaucrats most of all and they after all are the real slave owners aren't they? His 1984 was a very dull place with no one really communicating. Looks like the masks have accomplished much of that goal. Texting being the choice of the young there really are no real connections are there? It is much easier to shut down the network of cell phones than the one of real people after all. I say congratulate all your leftist friends and wait for the never ending party to begin. Looking forward to it.

I think the larger question is where was our vaunted domestic intelligence service? We are supposed to believe the FBI didn't know anything about this? Exactly what have they been doing? The depth of the corruption is astounding. I thought that much of what we were seeing was activity by the self protective bureaucracy. I was wrong. The deep state exists and extends it's tentacles through all three branches of government. Having betrayed it's entire base, I wonder where the GOPe expects to get donations from?

Yesterday was the glorification of fake news, Republican venality and treachery, and Congressional depravity all rolled into one brief spectacle. President Trump's speech and his magnificent turn out of support was the foil upon which the traitors to our country danced and leered. Let it, as the President said, never be forgotten.

None of the criminals going back to the Hillary era will ever serve a day in jail, the president SELECT and his family will enjoy their ill gotten millions and life for the citizens of our lost country will never be the same. Biden will be outta' there within six months and the laughing lady he selected as his VP will become president. Enjoy the next few days before the evil devils take over.

Just like in Charlottesville - local and state police along with the Governor of Virginia, mayor of Charlottesville conspired to force the two opposing groups to confront each other in that small and easily controlled Lee Park. This was a a set up. The Capitol Police and the Metropolitan DC Police work closely along with other law enforcement to protect the Capitol and our precious representatives all the time and no one saw this coming?

Let's party like it's 1999 because it'll be the gulags for the 74 million of us who made the mistake of voting Republican. And don't think that some call to arms from patriot militias or secession will save us. They will either ignore or shred the Posse Comitatus act just as quickly as they did the Constitution.

This was all a set up. The final nail in the coffin for MAGA by the deep state. Their goal was to prevent a 2024 comeback and this did the trick. Yes, some Trump supporters were wrong but the ANTIFA infiltrators did their job (prescribed by Obama/Soros) to rile up the crowd and the Capital police folded faster than the Philadelphia Eagles did last Sunday night. What is so shameful and despicable was the "rush to judgement" against the President. Sadly, in Tampa, our spawn of Satan(Nancy Pelosi disciple) Rep. Kathy Castor teamed with Rep. Charlie Crist to call for President Trump being removed from office. Total hysterics and likely all pre-planned - like this all was.

Just a historical note... Nicolae Ceausescu disarmed the Romanian people in the late 1940’s and became a socialist dictator with not just an army at his beck and call, but also a huge militia, armed with machine guns, who were posted on every street corner and secret police patterned after the Nazi SS. Go check out what happened to him and his wife on Christmas Day 1989. And remember once again - those people were disarmed.

It is easy to prove that it was a set-up .... and right out of the Chi-Com playbook of planting a false flag. Watch how many of the most prominent people seen breaking the law DO NOT get arrested! Why? Because that will show their real identities and their links to the Dems. In Hong Kong many of the "rioters" were actually working for mainland China. They started the fires as an excuse to allow the military to be called out and wade into the crowds to break heads. The D.C. police knew about this rally weeks ago! They knew the Capitol "invasion" was a possibility and stood aside to let some Antifa & BLM types lead the crowds by yelling "Follow me!". The purpose was to get today's headlines calling for Trump to resign and hand the "transition" over to Pence. This is our "Reichstag fire" ... an arson set off by Hitler's own supporters so he could have the excuse of cracking down on the opposition. We're not in Kansas anymore! Brace yourselves.

I wish Lifson could have posted the strangest video of all. A Capitol police officer is "blocking" protestors on the stairs with his baton but then turns around and seems to lead them up a flight of stairs. On the next landing he faces them again and acts like he is blocking them but turns around and they follow him up the stairs. This is the video everyone needs to see.

Congress puts on a great show. They (the Republicans) needed an 'emergency' to stab Trump in the back. Voila! The capitol 'breach' by a 'mob' of 'Trump supporting rioters'. Roll the fake shock and outrage. We just cannot give into a mob! Biden is confirmed as President elect. DC has been dealing with protests and riots for over a year. They knew what was coming, what would be needed to control it, and chose to 'use' it rather than maintain order.

If you look very carefully on Twitter, you will find one pic and one video. The pic shows the "viking" standing with Pelosi's son-in-law. The video shows the Capitol Hill police taking down the barriers and escorting the anti-farts through to enter the Capitol building. The fix was in to blame the Trump supporters!

The police made NO SERIOUS EFFORT to keep people out. Watch the videos. I saw about 25 officers confronted on the upper steps by about 50 protesters. One squirt of what I assume was pepper spray, then the officers push a bit, shove a bit, then just back up and run away, with the people following them at a slow walk. The LET them just walk in from the videos I saw, other than pushing over some flimsy temporary fences.

Most all articles on Lucianne come from the Media. The Media portrays Jan 6 in DC as an all out riot. However, I heard on the radio yesterday on the 6th that one security guy noted that his staff members were without food and locked in. So ..he called a spaghetti restaurant that delivered ... and the delivery was made without difficulty. How do these scenarios relate? One of them is a fabrication.

Americans are expected to be aghast at the events in Washington, D.C. on January 6. A vicious mob of revolutionary Trump supporters, we are told, swarmed the nation’s capital and, in an act of insurrection, unlawfully entered the hallowed halls of Congress. Unlike the “fiery but mostly peaceful protests” that were reported over the summer, the media have been quick to claim that this was not a “mostly peaceful” protest (despite the protestors being, by any estimation, mostly peaceful), but the entire event is being categorized as a bona fide riot that had been fueled by Donald Trump’s irresponsible and untruthful rhetoric.

In 2020, Democrat riots caused billions of dollars in property damage, destroyed historic sites, and assaulted and murdered dozens of people. Meanwhile, on January 6, President Trump asked patriots to walk peacefully to the Capitol to cheer politicians who, copying Democrat, objected to Electoral College votes. Some hotheads (encouraged by Antifa plants?) entered the Capitol, as Democrat protesters have done many times before. This time, though, Democrats demand that Trump leave office immediately under the 25th Amendment or be impeached and that all Trump-supporting politicians across America be expelled from office.

A couple of crackpots who pranked at the Capitol are now being called a “revolution.” As if that crazy, painted-face shaman with the buffalo-horn hat was leading -- what are they calling it? Ah yes, an insurrection. There was a call by millions of Americans for election integrity. It was met with “shoot to kill” behavior and then a great purge. It wasn’t a revolution; it was more like an ambush. No one is asking who gave the shoot-to-kill order or who gave the order to invite protesters into the Capitol building.

Democrats will proceed with the impeachment of 'deranged, unhinged and dangerous' Donald Trump this week unless Mike Pence uses the 25th Amendment to force him from office, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday night.

WASHINGTON—Democrats’ momentum for a fresh drive to quickly impeach outgoing President Donald Trump gained support Saturday, and a top Republican said the president’s role in the deadly riot at the Capitol by a violent mob of Trump supporters was worthy of rebuke.Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., said he believed Trump had committed “impeachable offenses.” But he did not explicitly say whether he would vote to remove the president from office at the conclusion of a Senate trial if the House sent over articles of impeachment.“I don’t know what they are going to send over and one of the things that I’m concerned about, frankly, is whether

Several lawmakers who went into lockdown during rioting by pro-Trump demonstrators at the Capitol last week were hunkered down with a person who tested positive for the coronavirus, the House Office of the Attending Physician said Sunday. “On Wednesday January 6, many members of the House community were in protective isolation in room located in a large committee hearing space,” Brian Monahan, Congress's attending physician, said in an email to lawmakers, according to The Washington Post. “The time in this room was several hours for some and briefer for others. During this time, individuals may have been exposed to another

Remember the Trump-hating Lincoln Project? That was the big-dollar NeverTrump group that included among its luminaries George Conway, the unhinged Trump-hating husband of the unfortunate Kellyanne Conway. They included many Dubya Bush administration operatives who'd been left out of the Trump administration and wanted revenge. (snip) They're now back to their old tricks in the post-election, with a new game to please Democrats: creating blacklists. They've announced they've compiled a databasee of all Republicans who worked for President Donald Trump with the aim of ensuring they never land jobs in the private sector.

Justin Thomas wishes he could get a mulligan. The PGA Tour star called himself a homophobic slur Saturday during the third round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii. Thomas uttered the slur on the fourth hole after missing a 4-foot put for par, and he was caught on a Golf Channel microphone. The 27-year-old Thomas, who has won the PGA Championship and 13 PGA Tour events, was apologetic when he discovered his slur was caught on TV after his round. “There’s just no excuse. I’m an adult, I’m a grown man,” Thomas told the Golf Channel after his round. “There’s absolutely

No one can point to any statement from President Trump calling upon his supporters to storm the Capitol, much less to stage a coup against the U.S. government, but it doesn’t matter anymore. The establishment media and the social media giants are insisting that he incited the attack on the Capitol and was trying to install himself as a dictator by means of a guy with a buffalo horn hat and some other dopes and wingnuts, and if you don’t believe it, you’re a racist, bigoted, MAGA-hat-wearing fascist who deserves to be silenced along with the president, and soon will be.
