New Photograph Shows Person of Interest
in Death of US Capitol Police Officer

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 1/12/2021 4:11:38 PM

A newly released picture shows a person of interest in the death of U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick. “U.S. Capitol Police just shared this picture with me. This man is wanted for questioning in connection with the murder” of Sicknick, Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) said Tuesday. The U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) didn’t immediately return a request for comment, nor did the FBI or the Metropolitan Police Department. The photograph showed an older man with a grey beard, wearing a blue knit cap emblazoned with the letters “CFD.” He was wearing a checkered coat and carrying a backpack.

Comments:

My first impression was that CFD stood for a fire department, but those could be many other initials and, if a firefighter’s cap, isn’t necessarily his.

I don't really care until they release the name of the murderer of Ashli Babbit and arrest him.

I watched the video and it showed the man just casually throwing the canister into the crowd. It did not look like he threw it in order to kill someone. Let's see the name of the man who shot the young woman.

The guy probably died of a heart attach or stroke. He walked back to his station and collapsed. I want them to show post mortem on him

The attack was a cowardly hit and run, he didn't wait around for peer approval. Looks like a union thug, might as well be James Hodgkinson, Scalise shooter.

I was wondering why the flags were at half-staff today. Honestly, I don't pay attention anymore. In recent years it seems the flag is lowered more than raised - so much so that it has become meaningless.

Obviously, I feel bad for the officer. But I wish I could see one aerial view of the crowd of patriots on January 6th.

(Video) As the threat of violence ramps up in America again, hundreds of exhausted National Guard troops have been forced to sleep on the cold marble floor of the Capitol building. Incredible images show politicians practically stepping over the troops clinging to their rifles in the hallways of the heart of the US government. Sleeping in almost any spot they can find, some are forced to use stairs as a makeshift pillow to get some rest as they ready for a potential insurgence in the run-up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next Wednesday.

Once Trump leaves office, the Senate

On Sunday, House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.) said that, while House Democrats would take up articles of impeachment this week against President Trump, the House might delay sending to the Senate any articles passed by the House until after President-elect Biden’s first 100 days in office.(Snip) Once Trump’s term ends on Jan. 20, Congress loses its constitutional authority to continue impeachment proceedings against him — even if the House has already approved articles of impeachment. Therefore, if the House of Representatives were to impeach the president before he leaves office, the Senate could not thereafter convict the former president and disqualify him under the Constitution from future public

The increasingly fascistic American left is setting a trap for the rest of their fellow citizens—often termed “deplorables,” but more appropriately dubbed “normals” by Kurt Schlichter—by warning that we intend violence all over the country during Joe Biden’s inauguration. This is nonsense, of course, but any kind of demonstration can be declared violent by a complaisant media or, more ominously, manipulated in that direction by provocateurs,(Snip)Part of their intent is clearly to undermine the Second Amendment—actually to disarm us.

A group tied to Beijing has organized trips to China for more than 120 journalists from almost 50 U.S. media outlets since 2009, as part of a broad campaign to deepen the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) influence in the United States. Called the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF), the group is a Hong Kong-based nonprofit headed by billionaire Tung Chee-hwa, a Chinese regime official. Tung was formerly the Chief Executive (top government leader) of Hong Kong and is currently a vice-chairman of the CCP’s political advisory body, the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. CUSEF is registered as a “foreign principal” under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

Shares of Twitter on Monday dropped 12 percent, after the company banned President Donald Trump and a slew of other conservatives. Shares dropped after the market opened on Monday, reaching a low of $45.17. Twitter shares closed at $51.48 on Jan. 8. Twitter said it removed Trump’s account on Friday because some of his recent posts were glorifying violence. The company echoed critics who attempted to connect Trump’s rhetoric with the breach of the U.S. Capitol. Trump responded by accusing Twitter of coordinating “with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me—and YOU, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me.”

Our country is in a very challenging time.”

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says to stem the spread of COVID-19, all Americans should wear a mask. The New York Times says if one mask works, maybe two will be twice as nice. “Football coaches do it. President-elects do it. Even science-savvy senators do it. As cases of the coronavirus continue to surge on a global scale, some of the nation’s most prominent people have begun to double up on masks — a move that researchers say is increasingly being backed up by data,” the paper writes. (Snip) Of course, there’s a drawback: “We run the risk of making it too hard to breathe.”

Right-wing pundit Rush Limbaugh turned 70 years old Tuesday — a landmark he wasn’t expecting to see. While hitting seven-o is a big birthday for anyone, Limbaugh said almost a year ago that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. Shortly before Christmas, an emotional Limbaugh said he was grateful to be outliving his doctors’ prognosis. “I wasn’t expected to make it to October and then to November and then to December and yet here I am,” Limbaugh told listeners. A column in his hometown publication the Southeast Missourian praised Limbaugh, a Cape Girardeau native, as “the first to develop a prominent place for conservatives in media”
