Comments:

Quite an extreme reaction for a dedicated family man with a steady job, versus a relatively minor infraction. Did he see something he shouldn't have?

Since the "riot" ended, 2 people have been forced to kill themselves because of the inflammatory statements by congresspeople and the press. When are they going to step up and take responsibility? 1 person definitely was killed during the "riot" and 1 more may have been. How many more deaths will the grandstanding politicians cause?

This was a relatively minor infraction, but the Dems are blowing it up into charges of sedition and before it's over they may even suggest firing squads.

People are losing their jobs for just peacefully attending the rally/speech. By the time this is over, they may all be labeled "domestic terrorists," and will be barred from airlines, and who-knows-what-all else. I can understand why someone would feel desperate enough to do this.

Who knows what kind of abuse he was subjected to, from neighbors, his employer, his wife, his children? Perhaps that support system was okay, but i suspect something else (other than a history of depression. Suicide, after all, usually nullifies a life insurance policy. It was said he love his daughters). I have heard on local talk radio about a business owner who had called in to the show to talk about his experiences in DC on the 6th. He had not had any involvement in the melee. Within the day, he became to object of brutal internet attacks, like a bunch of rapacious hyenas, so bad that the man was in tears. It was excruciating to listen to this man who had exercised his First Amendment Rights became the target of self-righteous busybody minders intent on RUINING the man, his life with their ugly, sneering censorious "cancel culture" mania. We may get an update today, i can only hope and pray that he has overcome the hate. I take this opportunity to decry the behavior of Republicans in Congress who have joined, like lemmings, the machinations of the Leftist Democrats who have been on a bloodthirsty hunt for President Trump, for all of 5 years. And even after exonerations from false charges and atrocious concoctions, they hounded him, all the while ridiculing and disrespecting his voters. Instead of calling for calm, condemning the insatiable craving for revenge against anyone who has supported DJT, they have done the opposite, and this is yet another insult on the Body Politic. It is inexcusable. They could have taken the high road, the FAIR road, after the President had been harassed by the hounds of hell for NO crime, grinding him down into the teeth of Cerberus, but they haven't. Furthermore, they have left their colleagues exposed to the poison darts of partisan hatred and opprobrium. McConnell could have risen above the corrosive atmosphere. He and others could have asked for calm and wisdom during days when the Republic needs men and women who care more about her than their momentary political advantage. They could have demonstrated a deed of profoundest inner fortitude during these hot political times: thank the President for his many accomplishments on behalf of the American people (and i would say the Middle East, to, where ISIS blood-letting has stopped), call for a truce in the hateful attacks on him; ask for forgiveness, and give forgiveness. They must stop the vendetta or else they will tear down walls of our great nation, not easily, if ever, restored.

There’s a central room in the new National Museum of African American Music–one that connects to all other corners of the 56,000-square-foot space. It’s called the “Rivers of Rhythm” corridor, and once you step inside, you’re awash in the sounds that have defined America for 400 years. On one end, you hear voices harmonizing over centuries-old spirituals, blending into the earliest recordings of Delta blues. At the same time, the opening saxophone flourishes of John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme” beckon from the other side of the hall, while Ice Cube tears into the first bars of “Straight Outta Compton.”

President Trump served up a brief summary on Thursday of his achievements in stopping U.S. involvement in “endless” wars, days before he is to leave office. Cut off from Twitter and other social media platforms, Mr. Trump issued a statement via a White House press release calling attention to his efforts to bring home troops from various theaters of conflict. “United States military troops in Afghanistan are at a 19-year low,” Mr. Trump said. “Likewise, Iraq and Syria are also at the lowest point in many years.

The White House on Wednesday released a 10-page document outlining the Trump administration’s strategy as of 2018 for countering China—stressing the role of India as a new ally in Asia. The document contains few surprises, outlining plans to support allies and boost the economic and counter-espionage efforts of neighboring states. But US cooperation with India features prominently in the assessment. “A strong India, in cooperation with like-minded countries, would act as a counterbalance to China,” it says. “China aims to dissolve US alliances and partnerships in the region. China will exploit vacuums and opportunities created by these diminished bonds.”

President Trump and his supporters were likened to dictators, despots, terrorists, and genocidal maniacs this week by dueling cable news competitors and elected officials. MSNBC viewers watched programming on Wednesday with analogies to the Ba’ath Party under Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, while CNN’s were warned about large amounts of “Nazis” and “Klan” members permeating the Republican Party. The cable news punditry was punctuated by Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California likening Mr. Trump to the terrorist who orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks—Osama bin Laden—during an interview with “PBS NewsHour.”(Snip) CNN’s Don Lemon went rhetorically darker by bringing up the Third Reich.

It was the first blockbuster case to surface in the federal corruption probe of Los Angeles City Hall—a multi-count indictment accusing former Councilman Mitchell Englander of taking envelopes of cash, lying to the FBI about that money and obstructing its investigation. Englander, while serving in office, made false statements to FBI agents during three separate interviews, prosecutors said, providing untrue information about his dealings with a businessman who gave him $15,000 in two casino bathrooms.(Snip) But now, prosecutors are voicing objections to the sentence recommended by federal probation officials: three years’ probation, a $9,500 fine and no jail time or community service.

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.
