As for many of the pubbies in the deep state, it was more like a rush to see who could cave the quickest.

I believe this was instigated by leftist. My problem is why ANY President Trump supporting American patriot would fall in line and carry on like some in fact did. Literally millions of Trump supporter had gone to his rallies over the last 4 years and never so much as thrown a coffee cup on the ground yet......

Sorry American Thinker, you became dead to me when you decided to "nuke" your comments section. True, I might miss some thoughtful commentary. But how much should Americans trust your editorial offerings, much less respect and support an entity that caves to the latest round of Big Tech censorship pressure? Monetize traffic on your opinion pages with somebody else's dime. Buh-bye.

Nasty Nancy's heavy handedness, her ruthlessness, her desperation, her hatred for Trump and his supporters, her haughtiness, her being unhinged, her lack of empathy for her constituents, her impulsiveness and every other diabolical vice are on fully display for the whole world to see. Only absolute moral blindness and cowardice can explain why she is still in office.

Of course it was a false-flag operation, and has done irreparable damage to the Trumper cause. Expect more such, with increasing violence.

Rush to judgement? You betcha! An honest reading of Trump's rally speech reveals no incitement of riot. And the more they investigate the more they are learning many of the Capitol invaders were leftist BLM and Antifa types rather than real Trump supporters. So the rush to impeach him again is nothing more than partisan hackery at its worst. But I will say that Trump did screw up by holding that rally in the first place. As Kenny Rogers said, you got to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em. Trump held a losing hand and by Jan 6 he wasn't going to change the outcome no matter how correct he is about election malfescance. I do believe that just like we now all acknowledge that the DemocRats stole the 1960 election, we will all come to know that they stole 2020 as well. But Trump was out of time to do anything about it before Inauguration Day because the Establishment UniParty had stacked the deck against him. He should have realized this and retreated to fight another day, but his ego kept him fighting a battle he wasn't going to win. By holding that rally, he provided a stage for bad actors to cause trouble on, and predictably got blamed for it by those partisan hacks who never let a crisis go to waste. It's a shame because when the dust settles decades from now he will be seen as a successful if flawed President.

The only question left is how many MSM goons and government Trump-haters knew about this Leftist plot before Trump even gave his speech?

Joe Biden’s Weird Version
of Goebbels’ Big Lie

At his press conference on July 8, Joe Biden offered a rather bizarre interpretation of history, in which he likened Ted Cruz and his challenge to some electoral votes to Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels and the “Big Lie.” Biden illustrated his point by referring to the Allied bombing of Dresden in February 1945 in which, he said, “250 or 2,500 people” were killed. (snip) As an historian I am flummoxed at Biden’s illustration of Dresden as a Big Lie. (snip) Except the Nazi Big Lie was not about Dresden. Rather it was about the British and American bombing of Hamburg in 1943.

Despite the national focus on the political battles in D.C., the state election results provide very positive news for Republicans. Republicans increased their trifectas (governor and legislature control) to 23 states (24 with Alaska if they ever finish counting). There are twelve states with divided control, and seven of those have Republican majorities in the legislature. Despite the Democrat huge advantage in money and media support, Republicans increased their number in Congress and in statehouses. This gives the Republicans a deep bench of intelligent, honest, and capable elected representatives at the state and local level.

On his Monday Fox News program, Tucker Carlson spelled out what America’s corporate overlords are doing in America. Essentially, they are “de-personing” anyone who dares to question what happened in America on November 3-8 or who even supports Trump. In a world run on computers, they are unplugging everyone who does not toe their party line. (snip) The usually ebullient Tucker is manifestly upset, even angry at what’s happening in America.

“The Republican nominee for president will be that candidate who best learns that there is no future in apologizing,” I wrote in a June 10, 2015, column. Six days later Donald Trump descended the escalator at Trump Tower and, in so doing, launched the most volatile period in American history since the Civil War. (snip) Reportedly, Louisiana Governor Huey Long was once asked, “Do you think we will ever have Fascism in America?” Said Long, “Sure, only we'll call it anti-Fascism.” What Trump exposed, and which may prove of more lasting value than what he accomplished, was the real-life unfolding of Long’s paradox.

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.

There was no revolution. There was no pro-Trump coup attempt. Everyone knows it. 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.

We’ve been reporting how Fox News seems to have abandoned “fair and balanced” and gone the way of mainstream news, all in on liberal talking points. It’s been ongoing for awhile, but got really bad and obvious around the election and after. While Fox still ended the year leading the other networks for this past year, the trouble spots were obvious and their ratings took a hammering last week where they finished third behind MSNBC and CNN, the first time that’s happened in 20 years, since the Clinton administration.

Democrats are making extraordinary efforts to suppress all discussion of whether Joe Biden actually won the 2020 presidential election. In fact, they go even farther: they want to suppress all discussion of the extent to which voter fraud occurred. That naturally makes me want to write about voter fraud, and who really won the election. First, this question: why are the Democrats so hysterical in their insistence that fraud not be mentioned? One reason is obvious. Joe Biden will take office under a cloud, since close to half of all Americans doubt that he really won the election. The Democrats want to stamp out

In an earlier article titled DOJ Watchdog & Other IGs Launch Probes Into Response to Capitol Riot: Questions Abound, I reported on a Friday announcement from the Justice Department’s inspector general that his office is conducting a probe into how the DOJ prepared for and responded to the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Apparently, it didn’t take long to come up with at least one conclusion — and solution. As reported by The New York Times, Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy has authorized the thousands of troops providing security in the area around the Capitol to use lethal force. Yeah, stuff just got serious.

The Capitol Police have over 2,000 sworn officers. A police force dedicated to protecting Capitol Hill has more personnel in its service than the police forces of most of the country. Congress' private cops are the 19th largest police force in the country. It’s a larger force than the police forces of Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, or Milwaukee with a massive $460 million budget. It’s the only legislative federal force in the country that is answerable exclusively to Congress. While Democrats advocated defunding the police, their private police force budget shot up from $375 million in 2016 to $460 million in 2020. After the Capitol Hill riot, expect it to go higher. Much higher.

Pallets of empty cardboard boxes were delivered Wednesday to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Moving day is less than a week away and preparations are underway for Trump’s departure and the Bidens arrival. Before the Bidens arrive, deep cleaning is scheduled to take place in the White House and Jill Biden has plans for a million-dollar bathroom renovation in the East Wing. We are still in a pandemic so it’s reasonable that intense cleaning will happen as one group leaves and another moves into the White House. This year the cleaning that takes place during the transition between two administrations is more intense (and costly) than normally done.
