The Capitol Hill Riot Was Pelosi’s Fault,
Not Trump’s: Why couldn’t Congress’
private police force of 2,000 protect it from
a mob of hundreds?

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.

Something smells about this so call riot. I was there. We saw bus loads of Antifa and BLM. Those were the people with body armor. Some wear Trump hats but when they got close to the Capital they took off the MAGA hat and put on black hard hats along with face shields. This was an inside job. Someone from the inside the Capital planned this and put it in action. The police were actually letting people in. The Trump people were stopping Antifa/BLM rioters from destroying the Capital. We need to know who was that person or group of people from the Capital that planned this. They need to go on trial and jailed.

South Carolina fam, Newly elected SC rep and stealth candidate and voter fraud denier nancy mace turned on President Trump and calls for investigation of Pubs who agreed with the factual evidence of voter fraud in the last election. SC now has four frauds in Washington who are siding with the swamp. Our state is in trouble; maybe we need to take a look at our own voter fraud. No wonder they need a private police force, and I don't just mean the CP; these people are pure evil! We will be paying for their protection 24/7. Their multiple homes will be guarded; they will travel around in secure vehicles, trains, and planes; they will be untouchable. We won't even be able to look at them. Even their shopping will be done securely. Someone could start a business shopping for or catering to the needs of the elite and make bank, and the money these cretins spend on their wellbeing will come from US. Expect massive pay raises and rewards, aka benefits, since they have to endure having their lives in danger 24/7. Watch what I'm telling you.

Pelosi, the queen of impeachments, should be impeached (or whatever it takes). She is a national disgrace and a threat to the survival of our country. Of course she knew about the invasion of the Capitol and it would not surprise me if she had a part in the planning. She is pure evil !!!

I´ve been wondering why the Capitol Police can´t protect the Capitol, and now this. Over 2,000 sworn officers! A $460 million budget! (That´s $230,000 per year, per officer.) I´m with #1 on this point: Most of the officers on duty on the fifth didn´t seem very eager to keep the mob out, not on videos I´ve seen. People who will do anything even half this sneaky, underhanded and reckless will do anything to acquire and retain pure power. As #2 points out, these people are evil. Fortunately, they´ve been showing all of us their playbook all summer long, as has the MSM. At least we know what we´re in for over the next four years, and it sure isn´t Dear Uncle Joe, it´s cranky, partisan, and mediocre ol´Joe and his squad. At least we know more about this incident every day, bit by bit, as more information leaks out. The MSM´s screeching "narrative" never made any sense. Rioting Trump voters?!? No, just NO. Conservative marches always disperse with trash collected, new bedding plants installed, and everything better than they found it! This whole affair has Antifa, BLM´s and the DNC´s grubby fingerprints all over it. Oh, and Twitter just had to ban a sitting president for "inciting," even though Trump clearly stated, "peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard" to the huge crowd. Some "incitement."

The other thing the 'riot' did was take attention away from the stolen election. Our elected 'leaders' are 'afraid' to challenge the election because that would put them on the side of the 'insurrectionists'. Nobody is talking about the stolen election anymore. All discussion is about the fake and manufactured riot.

We kept wondering why Trump was an hour late when all of his supporters were standing out in the cold waiting to hear him. We even saw that he was physically on site, but not coming out to speak. Then we heard that the break in at the capitol started before his speech even ended. How do you incite a crowd to go and start a riot down the street....when the riot is already happening?! I had friends who were there, and they didn't even know about the problem at the capitol until they got to their hotel and watched the news. They said the crowd was full of great people having a wonderful time together.

I viewed this so called riot on You Tube and those were not Trump supporters. Supporters of Trump don't show up with helmets, shields, bear mace and some wore protective police style vest. If the Congress wanted more security there was the National Guard which was refused. The Capital and Washington was wide open for this to happen unlike it is for the Fraud Biden inauguration.

We have passed the point where logic and facts make any difference. Congress, like SloJoe, prefers "truth" over facts. With Pelosi and the other oligarchs in what used to be called "Congress" truth is whatever they say it is and whatever the lap dog media prints. Unfortunately, most of the republicans (with some very notable exceptions, but too few to make a difference) are so easily rolled that they make no difference. We need a new party that upholds the Constitution. Maybe it will happen, but I am sure Mitch and McCarthy would demonize this as much as the democrats. In reality, there is such little difference.

I once got a parking ticket from the Capitol Police. I didn't think I deserved it but I had a very difficult time protesting it. I was told first there was no avenue for protesting it. That couldn't be right, I thought, so I kept pushing. Eventually, they said I would need to have a trial in the DC court, so I got a trial date.. When I appeared for the trial, the prosecutor asked what I was there for and I told him. He said I didn't have to pay it and dismissed the case. This makes me wonder what happens when the Capitol Police arrest someone. It seems like the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing in DC.

The Democrats are a criminal organization. We cannot continue to allow this. The only people that can hold them accountable is the Republicans, and they are not doing it. Are there any Republican lawyers? The Democrats seem to have so many that they file nuisance lawsuits to have something to do, but we can't get a subpoena issued. What do Republican DA's do? Anyone ever heard from them. What about Republican U.S. Attorneys? Didn't Trump appoint at least one that might take up a lawsuit, if they so deign. What happened to the Republican AG's? One took the job, then recused himself from it. The other took the job, never intending to do it. We have some Republican Governors, SOS, and state legislatures--but we never hear much out of them, and when we do, it is they have been accepting bribes from the Chinese to do what the Democrats want. Our FBI and CIA defends the Democrats, not our country.

There are three men who can answer any questions: The deposed Sergeants at Arms for the House and Senate (chief law enforcement officers for their respective chambers), and the Chief of Police. They, along with the Architect of the Capitol, comprise the Police Board that oversees the activities of the USCP. They made the deployment plan, approving every step. An inquiring press would go ask them. Like every government agency, USCP never lets a crisis go to waste in the budget department. They're a "good cause", and we all know nearly half a billion is "not enough", never enough for our brave first responders. Someone look in the basement of the Government Printing Office to see if their superstuffed immobile command vehicle is still parked there with its broken chassis due to overloading with "essential stuff".

I saw the video of the BML guy and the MSNBC reporter filming the 'riot'. While we are told of breaking into the Capitol, i don't understand why rioters went in a peaceful line inside the roped area to the doorways to conduct their break in... I would think if you are rioting you burst in and go all over the place tearing down pictures and statues etc. i saw none of that on this video.

# 1 & 10 I was there too. No cell service, whatever we heard about what was going on could nor be confirmed. I saw a flare shot off in front of the Capitol and wondered what that was about, 2 guys next to us put on gas masks, and disappeared, and when the large flag was hung from the scaffolding, we sang the Star Spangled Banner. Trump people do not " riot " , do not do property damage, do not loot. It was about 3PM when it went around that there was a 6 PM curfew, so, we went home.

According to outgoing Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, his repeated requests for backup, made in the days before the attacks, were denied by "House and Senate security officials." Who would those officials be? Has anyone bothered to confirm whether or not such requests were made, and when and by whom they were denied? Seems to me that House and Senate "security officials" with authority to deny Mr. Sund's requests ought to be questioned. Mr. Sund was thrown under the bus before his story could even be examined. I would like to know if it has been confirmed or denied at this late date. If not, what is taking so long?

Answer to the question posed in the headline: Because the antifa and BLM thugs were working with the FBI planners and the Capitol police leadership to make sure that the Reichstag burned. Fortunately, nothing actually burned. This was all about a few broken windows......until the murdered Ashli Babbitt. A few broken windows and they get hysterical and start shooting people. And yet in Seattle, Portland, Kenosha, and Minneapolis - antifa and BLM burned down city blocks and that was called "a mostly peaceful protest". Who killed Ashli Babbitt?

Given all the information that has come out this past week alone, I would say that Pelosi is desperate defined to keep the media from dropping this rightfully where it belongs, her and Turtle's deserving laps. Both their gate keepers denied offers of back up security for the capitol building, because I suspect they wanted exactly what happened. An Antifa riot they could lay at the feet of us and Trump. The media knows the truth, after all, they were right there, embedded with Antifa/BLM rioters.

Front line police were not expecting the militant agitprop groups to mix in with the Trump rally attendees. Before the crowd arrived, the Capitol had already been breached and reinforcements were not showing up. There was supposed to be more speakers down at the Capitol, but there wasn't, and not even anything set up for them. Someone must have warned the muckity-mucks down at the ellipse not to try to speak down at the Capitol. President Trump said he would be walking down there, but he did not show up. There was much more known that we are not being told.

Re #31. Perhaps they aren't talking about Ashli Babbitt because she was murdered by Antifa/BLM thugs, and if they report that, it would destroy the pro-Trump insurrection narrative. Another possibility was she was murdered by a panicked gun wielding Congress critter. If she had been shot by some arm of Capitol security, it would have been reported by now.

What happened at the Capitol building on Jan 6th would be small potatoes to what would have happened if it was certified by Congress that Trump had won the election. Just think about what would have occurred in DC on Inauguration Day if it was Trump who was getting sworn in. If you have put two and two together by now, it’s certain that Antifa, BLM, and other Democrat fringe crazies and groups would have staged huge riots in the area of the Mall and around the Capitol, and they would not consist of a couple of hundred morons, but planned violent attacks with the mission among other things to burn down the Capitol and other US Government buildings in DC. Remember McConnell and Pelosi are ultimately responsible for Capitol Police operations and the security of the Capitol building. In that respect have you ever heard of, or seen anyone with any go-power ask either one of them why they did not reinforce the Capitol security with the entire Capitol Police force, along with the National Guard, after all sorts of law enforcement intelligence was received that there was bound to be criminal actions take place with such a huge crowd numbering hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters present in the late afternoon who could easily be infiltrated by violent elements from both sides of the political divide. I can’t.

Exactly. All this crap about the politicians being in danger is BS. This was a demoslut organized riot with Antifa/BLM leading the charge. While I believe there were Trump supporters in the mob, the ones doing the damage and causing the most trouble were not Trump supporters because they knew their butts would be covered. For the demosluts, deaths are just icing on the cake for their narrative. The deaths to police and others aren't that important. The cause is important.

In the video when Babbitt was shot, you can clearly see the hand and forearm of the shooter. The shooter is wearing a white dress shirt (cuff extended) and a dark suit jacket. This is not a police jacket. Plain clothes security guard? (we have not been told so), or somebody else?

#41/42 - The shooter was almost certainly USCP Protective Services, who work plain clothes and act as the "Secret Service" to Congress. One video of the shooting includes a profile of the shooter, and it bears some reasonable resemblance to the officer who later committed suicide. USCP said the deceased officer was in the Senate Division...maybe he was and was detailed for the occasion.

One thing is for sure, those morons who made an unlawful entry to the US Capitol building scared the “crap” out of the Uniparty Congressional aristocracy. Remember that aristocracy is the same cabal that without thinking twice about it, would vote to send your daughters and sons serving in the US military to deploy and fight in endless foreign wars where they could easily be killed, blown up, or otherwise severely wounded.

Coke Goes Woke and Broke 20 replies
Posted by OhioNick 3/1/2021 3:18:06 AM Post Reply
“Get woke, go broke”, is a conservative meme about the cost of political correctness that has it the wrong way around. Brands don’t go broke because they get woke, they go woke because they’re going broke, and don’t know how to stop the slow but steady collapse of their business. The big brands that go woke infuriate conservatives because, like Coke, Gillette, or Nike, they have a storied name that seems entwined with America and the success of capitalism. But it’s those old, familiar brands that go woke because their products and business models are dated. Virtue signaling is their way of adapting to a changing market without really innovating.

A federal judge on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit brought by a transgender woman who accused Miss United States of America of discriminating against her after they denied her the right to compete because she was not a biological female, according to reports. Pageant contestant Anita Noelle Green sued Miss U.S.A in December of 2019 after she alleged the pageant denied her application and refunded her entry fees on the day she applied. The Miss U.S.A pageant only allows “natural born biological females” to compete, according to a Motion to Dismiss filed by the pageant. The pageant argued that under the First Amendment it has rights to free association.

The same folks to bring you “Abrahamism”—the idea that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are intricately connected—have narrowed their sights on promoting Mary, the mother of Christ, as “a Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman,” in the words of Catholic priest Fr. Gian Matteo of the Pontifical International Marian Academy. In a ten-week webinar series titled “Mary, a model for faith and life for Christianity and Islam,” the academy will seek to present Mary as a bridge between the two religions. This may be easier said than done — at least for those still interested in facts.

The Federal Communications Commission announced Friday it has approved funds to provide internet subsidies for low-income families. [SNIP] The FCC says the program will provide eligible households with discounts of up to $50 a month for broadband service, and up to $75 a month if the household is on Tribal lands. It also will provide a one-time discount of up to $100 on a computer or tablet for eligible households, the FCC added. The FCC says that the program is open to Lifeline subscribers, including those that are on Medicaid or accept SNAP benefits; households with children receiving free or reduced-price lunch or school breakfast; Pell grant recipients.

Paul, who was a practicing ophthalmologist before becoming a U.S. senator, likened transgender minors starting on transitioning treatments to genital mutilation, blaming the increasing rates of trans-identified youth on 'the social pressure to conform.'

May 31st was an ugly day in Des Moines, Iowa, as hateful mobs of Black Lives Matter extremists smashed and looted their way across Merle Hay Mall. A protest the day before had smashed up the Polk County Courthouse, shattering windows and spraying it with graffiti. Near the mall, small business owners got out their guns and stood outside closed stores. Iowa State Rep. Ako Abdul-Samad, a former Black Panther and chair of the American Muslim Alliance, a group once considered so extreme that Hillary Clinton had returned its donations, played a key role in the BLM protest. Samad had opposed a bill targeting antisemitism.

An Ohio Senate bill that seeks to catch fraud among people applying for and receiving social services will result in increased work for county case workers, as well as fewer low-income people obtaining food aid, Medicaid and unemployment benefits, advocates for the poor said Wednesday. Senate Bill 17 requires case workers to cross-check applicants and enrollees against state data such as new hire records, wage records, lottery winnings and death records, said sponsor Sen. Tim Schaffer, a Lancaster Republican. Schaffer held up pictures during Wednesday’s Ohio Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee of food aid debit cards he said were found by investigators in drug houses.

Former President Barack Obama claimed reparations for black Americans are 'justified' but explained in his podcast with Bruce Springsteen that it was a 'nonstarter' during his presidency because of 'white resistence'. [SNIP] 'There’s not much question that the wealth of this country, the power of this country was built in significant part, not exclusively, maybe not even the majority of it, but a large portion of it was built on the backs of slaves.'

My initial reaction was that Navarro occupied a position in the Trump Administration that wouldn’t have afforded him access to this kind of “inside information” with regard to the status of a closely-held criminal investigation. At the same time, however, his background and portfolio of responsibilities made him one of only a limited number of people who were part of the true inner circle of the Trump White House.

The numbers paint a daunting picture. In 2019, consumers worldwide bought 64 million new personal cars and 27 million new commercial motor vehicles, a paltry 2.1 million of which were electric-powered. Climate scientists tell us that we have less than a decade to make meaningful reductions in carbon emissions — including those from internal combustion engines — if we have any hope of staving off the worst effects of global warming. Yet manufacturers are still making, and consumers are still buying, overwhelming numbers of vehicles that will, on average, continue to spew carbon into the atmosphere for a dozen years after they

New York - OPEC and Russia's unprecedented production cuts last spring lifted oil prices out of a death spiral. Nearly a year later, the group is under pressure to cool off the red-hot market. US crude has raced back above $60 a barrel. That's a far cry from the depths it reached last April when oil crashed below zero (negative $40.32 a barrel, to be exact) for the first time in history. Prices at the pump are starting to creep higher, too. The national average hit $2.70 a gallon Friday, according to AAA. That's well above the April low of $1.76

Protesters smashed up several businesses during the latest night of destruction in Portland, Oregon—with fed-up locals screaming at them to “go home,” according to reports. Around 150 black-clad protesters marched through the troubled City of Roses late Saturday, trashing businesses during “direct action” against Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Oregonian said. “Windows were broken at a grocery store, restaurant, bank, shipping business, and multiple coffee shops,” Portland police said of the two-hour rampage. Targets included a Chipotle, Starbucks and even an Urban Pantry, KOIN News said, with social media images showing anti-ICE graffiti also scrawled across numerous buildings,

Kamala Harris has only one card and she plays it over and over again. And then she plays it some more. "When we look at black history, we know that so much of the fight — especially during the Civil Rights Movement and, of course, before — has been about equality. (Snip) You can't fight for equality and equity. No one starts out from the same place. Kamala started out as the daughter of wealthy foreign students who grew up in Canada and lives in a Brentwood mansion. That doesn't mean that she should be held back.

Orlando, Florida — Former President Donald Trump teased a 2024 White House bid and relitigated unfounded claims that the November election was stolen, initiating act two of his political career with a rousing speech to adoring supporters at the Conservative Political Action Conference that aimed to solidify his command of the Republican Party. The address lasted more than one hour, during which Trump twice suggested he was planning a third presidential campaign and several times declared he won reelection in 2020 only to watch the Democrats steal his victory and illegitimately install President Biden. The CPAC crowd of approximately 1,400

Between killing thousands of elderly folks with his deadly nursing home COVID-19 policy, and the now two allegations of sexual harassment, the Emmy Award-winning Governor Andrew Cuomo has found himself lacking in political capital recently… and it just got worse. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has finally spoken out about the allegations against the governor, and called both of the charges made against him “credible.” “The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity,” Pelosi said

Illegal aliens are in for some gravy. Unlike legal immigrants who must pay their own way to their final destinations in this 5,077-mile span country, the Biden administration has introduced free flights for illegals to their destination of choice. Want a free trip to Hawaii? Off you go, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers but only if you arrive in the U.S. illegally and can name someone (legal or not) there who will take you in. According to this report from Hot Air: Since January, according to the Washington Post, “the number of [illegal immigrant] minors in federal custody has more than tripled to 7,000” and that Health

If Joe Biden gives a State of the Union address sometime this March, it will be late, based on precedence, but still in accordance with an 87-year tradition. All of which brings up the question: if Joe Biden does not deliver or cannot deliver a State of the Union address, is he truly the president? In 38 days, he has not held a full press conference. Each of us who frequent and read the articles has known for quite a while that poor old Joe lacks the cognitive capability to handle the job.
