Timeline of Events in DC on Jan. 6

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 1/14/2021 12:38:59 PM

On Jan. 6, supporters of President Donald Trump gathered in the nation’s capital for a demonstration, called the “Save America March.” The plan was to hold a rally in The President’s Park just south of the White House and then march to the Capitol building to demand that Congress and Vice President Mike Pence reject electoral votes for former Vice President Joe Biden from states where election results were marred by irregularities, allegations of fraud, and unconstitutional voting rule changes. By the end of the day, the Capitol went through several rounds of lockdown after a sizable group of protesters broke inside.

Comments:

Four of the protesters died: Ashley Babbitt (shot dead by a Capitol police officer; and three others - one from a stroke, one from a heart attack, and one crushed in crowd. One police officer died the next day as a result of injuries suffered in “engaging with the crowd”. ABC News reported he also had a medical condition that contributed. There is as yet no proof of what caused his injuries, although it was said he was hit with a fire extinguisher. No video of that.

So if the problems started before Trump was even through speaking, how could any reasonable person say that he incited insurrection with his speech?

I still think it is unusual that no counter protestors were present at this event. They have been at every Trump rally previous. It could be that they were outnumbered, but they were always out numbered. It may have been they were aware that there would be trouble, but then again, they like trouble. Based on what Pelosi and Schumer are saying it seems they are going to make it a federal crime be a conservative Republican. There was a former Obama Homeland Security official on PBS saying that Trump was using code words to direct the actions of the insurrection. The Dems are going to stoke enough fear and paranoia that we could see some Ruby Ridge type events which will only help to justify the crackdown on the “Deplorables” which they have now promoted to White Supremacists.

If you have the stomach for it you need to watch the latest podcast that Giuliani has posted before it gets permanently banned. It shows what really happened using the video that was shot by the Antifa/BLM organizer as they stormed the Capitol building before the Trump speech even ended. What is amazing is that it shows how they staged the break in to Pelosi's office. They break the window even though everyone could see that the Capitol officer had a handgun drawn on them and then lift the unarmed woman who was killed through the broken window where she was shot point blank. This was a murder. Its now clear why the USCP won't identify the officer involved to the public. No one tried to stop them even though there were multiple USCP officers on the protester side of the window and the gun was plainly visible to all. Also, as the camera is rolling before the shooting two people who look like detectives and are out of place nod acknowledgement to the camera as if they knew this was all staged. Judge for yourself. https://rudygiulianics.com/censored-videos/

In my opinion, the 'counter protesters' carefully managed to blend in with the Patriot MAGA parade. Hats, flags, banners, etc., are easily counterfeited. And quickly. Just think about where the summer protesters got their bricks, and the organized piles of molotov cocktails.

#1 The counter protest people were busy pretending to be Trump people , it was they that smashed windows, went into the Capitol and otherwise did all they could to have the Trump people vilified.

I think this article is pretty fair. I believe the crowd estimate is light. I have been in festivals with 150k ticket sales and this rally was an order of magnitude larger. But shamefully the security was an order of magnitude lighter and less armed until some of the riot squads showed up. It is evident that bad guys were on the front line and their were good guys there too and even heros. I would like to see some of them be recognised. I saw a video of 2 guys taking blows to protect an officer. I watched all of trumps speech and saw no bad guys. I allso went to the capital oblivious to the preceding violence. The crowd eas so massive if u were 50 yards from the front line u may have been oblivious to any violence.

How Did Officer Brian Sicknick Die? 6 replies

Days after the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick during the DC riots, there remains a cloud of uncertainty as to how he died.(Snip) no official description of the attack on Sicknick, 42, has been given. A report in The New York Times that cites “two law enforcement officials” the Times did not name, said Sicknick was hit on the head with a fire extinguisher during Wednesday’s rioting at the U.S. Capitol.(Snip) Moreover, the website ProPublica offered a different explanation. It quoted Ken Sicknick, whom the site identified as the late officer’s brother, as saying that Brian Sicknick had communicated with his family and never mentioned a fire extinguisher attack.

Twenty-three people died in Norway within days of receiving their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, with 13 of those deaths — all nursing home patients — apparently related to the side effects of the shots, health officials said. Common reactions to the vaccine, including fever and nausea, “may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients,” Sigurd Hortemo, chief physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency, said in a Friday statement. All 13 were nursing home patients and at least 80 years old. While officials aren’t expressing serious concern, they are adjusting their guidance on who should receive the vaccine.

The deadly riot at the US Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the January 6 joint session of Congress. A small number of cadre used the cover of a huge rally to stage its attack. Before it began, I saw from my vantage point on the West Front of the Capitol, what appeared to be four separate cells or units: Plainclothes militants. Militant, aggressive men in Trump and MAGA gear at a front police line at the base of the temporary presidential inaugural platform; Agents-provocateurs. Scattered groups of men exhorting the marchers to gather closely and tightly toward the center of the outside of the Capitol

After the lockdowns and election issues of 2020, the MAGA movement is now a full-on “anti-regime” movement rather than a Trump-focused one. The domestic spying, impeachment, and election irregularities of the Trump presidency matter because of what they tell us about the managerial system. All the public talk of democracy is for show; the whole point of the bureaucracy and the party system is to prevent any popular, democratic movement that would threaten the ruling class’ privileges. As President Trump put it, “They don’t hate you because they hate me. They hate me because they hate you.” In this, he was correct.

Social media giants Facebook and Twitter have collectively seen $51.2 billion in combined market value wiped out over the last two trading sessions since they banned President Donald Trump from their platforms following the U.S. Capitol breach. Large tech firms and a number of Democratic political figures have claimed Trump incited violence at the U.S. Capitol last week. (Snip) Trump took to Twitter following the outbreak of violence to call on protesters to “go home in peace.” He denounced the violence as a “heinous attack” that “defiled the seat of American democracy” on Jan. 7. It is unclear who instigated the breach of the building.

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.
