contradicting claims that there was no indication
of looming violence

WASHINGTON — A day before rioters stormed Congress, an FBI office in Virginia issued an explicit internal warning that extremists were preparing to travel to Washington to commit violence and "war," according to an internal document reviewed by The Washington Post that contradicts a senior official's declaration that the bureau had no intelligence indicating that anyone at last week's pro-Trump protest planned to do harm. A situational information report approved for release the day before the U.S. Capitol riot painted a dire portrait of dangerous plans, including individuals sharing a map of the complex's tunnels, and possible rally points for would-be conspirators to meet up

Government, media, and tech are painting all that attended the jan. 6 DC rally wIth being a violent mob rather than a massive peaceable assembly with a fringe violent element on the frontline. The violent frontline opened the path that was taken by the peaceful assembly that had no way of knowing what had preceded them. To them it was a tour of our beautiful capital grounds.

We know that there are undercover agents infiltrating antifa groups, so they might have been the source of some warnings. Clearly they brought tools for breaking windows. Then there might have been a few militia types that got worked up enough to join in. But many of those that walked in were patriots, who were welcomed in by capitol officers. I saw one man sitting and eating a sandwich in the rotunda...all smiles. The ones who interest me are the military folks who used the chaos as cover to grab laptops with evidence on Nancy and others. Seven days of hope.

Why would anyone believe anything the FBI says. They will promote anything that looks bad for Trump and his supporters. The swamp is very deep and it’s tentacles go everywhere in government. Every department. Every state in the country.

You can't see this? Really? The FBI is running cover for BLM and antifa, that's all. They KNEW both groups were going to insight riots and they coordinated with capitol police. Have you ever visited DC? The capitol? The guards at the doors are there to ensure that NO ONE enters the capitol building through the exits. That IS their job. Now, multiply that with the Chicom crap, especially in DC and entering through the exit door is an even bigger no-no. Did you see the videos of capitol police letting in BLM and antifa? Have you not been awake for the past four years? Let that and complete absence of reporting of that sink in. Trump and his supporters were set up. It was staged. It was on purpose. The FBI knew it and they helped make sure it happened. The DC MAGA was a rope-a-dope long before anyone got there. Trump supporters walked right into it without a clue. Pollyanna has do be sent to Fiji. Communications are about to disappear with NO alternative. McQuisling (Rio Lindans that would be McConnell, look up Quisling) thinks this will get us Constitution lovers in line and it will if you have to get in line in order to eat, or keep your job. Truth, facts, data will have no effect just like the past four years only soon they will be impossible to find.

We have heard more about the fbi in the last three weeks (including the bombing in Nashville) than we did in the previous four years of the President's term. Now all of the sudden the fbi can assign resources to investigate something. Now Wray comes out of his closet and can suddenly speak. So now we see that the fbi had early knowledge of the capitol siege. Wray, what to do, bro? Time for another coverup? How convenient.

The FBI has zero credibility. Like DHS under Obama's Napolitano and their report that the biggest domestic terror threat were white male veterans, the FBI and other members of our vaunted law enforcement an intel agencies have been waiting, hoping for the excuse to now actively go after white conservatives.

Indeed, it appears the "extreme right wing" was set-up, and now hoist on their own petards. The thing about it is that this has done, intentionally, I believe, mortal damage to the MAGA movement and crowd. It has sent the Republican party scrambling for cover from the fallout. This offers less extreme conservatives opportunities. You want a "third party"? Take over a battered Republican party instead. It really is there for the taking...

In 2020, the ANTIFA and BLM bums burned and stormed many police stations and city halls. They killed 4 policemen and injured 210 more. Obama Democrats and their commie media did not say a word. A black Security Guard killed a pretty Air Force woman in the White House and that was OK. Joe Biden, Kamala and lying Hillary are modern bums. Trump won the 2020 election. He should never concede. Trump should fight for America until the cows come home.

The most serious fault lies with the Capitol Police. Just knowing that there will be tens of thousands of emotional people in town, regardless of their intentions, calls for extra police and defense of the Capitol building where highly controversial legislation would be taking place. This was definitely a setup. Bowser, the Capitol Police, the DC Police and the FBI all dropped the ball and chances are it was a deliberate fumble.

The FUBARS (FBI) never, ever get it right. They went ballistic over Y2K and the damage that would cause. The only thing that happened there is that consulting software engineers made millions reprograming computers for idiot company managers! I laughed all year while they did it leading up to Y2K. The FBI even called me (I was known to be a White Supremacist) and asked if we were planning any actions once the computers all went down. I laughed again and told them they were as stupid as the corporate managers!

The Mayor of DC ordered a light presence at the capitol. The FBI warned there would be a large crowd and announced the organized participants, BLM, Antifa, and Qanon. The leaders of these groups were photographed inside the capitol building. They intend to prosecute 100 plus for the siege. This is not what was done in other riots around the country, in particular, the blue states.

I just received an email from Ronna McDaniel of the Republican party basically saying don't come to D.C. armed and ready to battle. Since I no such intention of doing that, I assumed she is swallowing the MSM line hook, line, and sinker that all Republicans are a domestic terrorists. I quickly shot back a response stating that the Republicans in D.C. are as much responsible for the Capitol Building mess as the Antifa and BLM idiots who caused most of the damage. I also told her the second amendment was placed in the Constitution for exactly the reason what the government is doing. Ignoring the rights of citizens and ignoring the Constitution. I also mentioned Thomas Jefferson's Tree of Liberty quote. The present government as a whole, does not represent the majority of citizens or the Constitution.

So let me understand, during President Trump’s inauguration it was okay for the libs to riot by the thousands, set the town on fire, hold anti Trump speeches threatening violence including burning down the White House, but when we want to voice our outrage, we are criminals and Trump is held accountable for the action of others? I didn’t hear anyone condemning Pelosi and her gang, what a joke. Nice knowing you America.

Now that Nanci has succeded in getting the military into D.C., you can bet that some of them will have orders to "escort" Trump from the White House on Jan 20 in order to capture images that they can use in propaganda: See, Trump refused to leave and we had to send in troops to haul him out. Trump needs to deny them the photo op.

Poll: Strong majority of GOP voters see
themselves as Republicans instead of 'MAGA Nation'

Posted by Dreadnought 1/14/2021 7:34:53 PM Post Reply
A strong majority of GOP voters view themselves as Republicans rather than devotees of President Trump's Make America Great Again, or "MAGA," movement, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. Among the Republican voters, 74% consider themselves "more of a Republican," while 19% see themselves as "part of MAGA nation." The numbers could reflect the fallout from last week's Capitol riot, which has been broadly characterized as being led by Trump's MAGA devotees, a key part of the president's base, helped him become president in 2016. However, there is no similar, previous polls to compared percentages.

I am a huge fan of classic Disney fare. Over the years, though, I've come to see Disney as a truly toxic company. The only reason I won't boycott it over its announcement that it will not fund politicians who challenged the Electoral College certification is that I'm already boycotting it. Before I get to Disney's current fall (even farther) from grace, let me explain why I've been boycotting Disney for years. It was actually a hard habit to break. As is true for every American, I grew up on Disney fare. The early works are utterly enchanting.

Politico is facing backlash on Thursday—both internally and externally—for handing over the keys to its signature news product for the day to Ben Shapiro, an oft-incendiary right-wing commentator. “We published a piece by a very prominent writer, provocateur, and podcaster.

At another point, the top editor added: “Mischief making has always been a part of Politico’s secret sauce. We were an upstart. Some of that sensibility is always going to be a part of this publication.”

Those were all quotes from our speaker. Of course, many other instances of prominent Democrats encouraging violence could be cited as well. But journalists failed to get the point

A small number of cadre appeared to use the cover of a huge rally to stage its attack.

In the days leading up to last week’s march on the Capitol, supporters of President Trump promoted it extensively on Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram and used the services to organize bus trips to Washington. More than 100,000 users posted hashtags affiliated with the movement prompted by baseless claims of election fraud, including #StopTheSteal and #FightForTrump. The details, emerging from researchers who have combed the service in recent days, shed new light on how Facebook services were used to bring attention to and boost attendance at the rally, which turned violent when a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol while Congress was in session.

Essentially, the duo argued that the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots from last spring and summer were cooler than last week’s Capitol Hill attack because they were “justified” and the cases were not “apples to apples.” Their griping was spurred on by this exchange between Cuomo and DHS Undersecretary Ken Cuccinelli, after the latter recalled the destructive violence that raged for months

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.

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.
