A Study Shows Very Few Capitol Hill Rioters
Were QAnon Red-Staters With Ties to 'Right
Wing' Groups

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 3/15/2021 11:23:17 PM

A survey by the University of Chicago finds that most Capitol Hill rioters had no ties to any fringe right-wing groups and were engaged people outraged by what they believed was a rigged election. While colorful weirdos with names such as QAnon Shaman and Baked Alaska stole the headlines, people who were arrested by federal officials during and after the riot were a “broader core of people” with a healthy skepticism about the veracity of the November 2020 election, according to the study. There was plenty of reason for the skepticism, considering the collusion between Big Tech, unions, law fare, and Democrats’ combined efforts to sway the election.

A lot of people are invested in making sure that the "riots" on Jan. 6th did NOT include antifa or blm provocateurs. How hard is it to buy a MAGA hat and / or American flag?

Apparently we can now be arrested for believing that there was massive vote fraud in the last election and getting upset about it. It's bad enough that they stole the election, lie about it constantly in the media, and call us all conspiracy theorists for believing what we all saw with our own eyes, but then they have to go overboard and actively persecute us. They are either really trying to start a civil war or they actually believe their own lies.

Fact is the Military-Democrat Complex is now holding about 300 political prisoners without bail to be condemned in the Kangaroo courts of the District of Communism. Fact is that the USA had a fraudulent election used to remove the winner, wonderful president

Anybody who went into the Capitol building on January 6 was either Antifa or a fool. I believe if that crowd had really planned to overturn the government, it would have gone differently.

The infiltraters with fake MAGA hats and signs made up far less than 1% of the huge crowd of Trump supporters, a similar percentage to the death rate caused by COVID that they are using to keep America locked down. At least Joseph Goebbels provided the Nazis with plausible lies used to control the German people. Our Satanic government tells such obvious lies that it would be laughable if they weren't doing actual harm to the people who built this country in favor of all of the various parasites who live from the fruits of our labors.

What the hell you mean real educated hard working Americans are po'd? Whoda thunk it? FTA: “Normally, we don’t even have a category for ‘business owner’ when we study political violence, so this is a very big sign that we’re dealing with a new political movement with violence at its core that can’t be reduced to the usual suspects.” Violence at it's core, how about the freedoms guarantied in the constitution at its core? And FTA: "Nearly 90% had no ties or right-wing affiliations whatsoever." Well that depends on your definitions. When we are commonly labeled as "right wing" for believing in the constitutional republic and simultaneously national socialists and the KKK who are directly opposed to constitutional freedoms are called right wing, I don't know what is meant by defining 90% as not from right wing groups. The left has had their boot on our necks for decades the first significant challenge took place under Trump, he is denied a second term under suspicious circumstances, some even boated of in the Times, and it takes a study to figure our why we are miffed?

"Very few"? What is that? It's a term you use when you don't want to state the facts. It can literally mean anything. Was it 1%, 2% 5% 10%? Who the heck knows. This is just about as useless an article, as it gets. No details, no facts and... no truth. Just how much data and videos would the University of Chicago have access to anyway? Besides, this was a SURVEY; it was an OPINION, about what group you thought, the other person in the crowd was a member of. How would you know? GARBAGE!

There was no riot. There were no "rioters". There were some demonstrators who knocked over a few temporary bike-rack type "barriers" and walked in, unopposed by the "security" force. And four windows were broken by antifa infiltrators. There was some trespassing.....although it is "the People's house". Who murdered Ashli Babbitt? Why isn't the murderer in prison?

Why does it always take a months' long study by a group of academics to prove what most of us knew within five minutes was just another democrat lying scam? The plan was devised before January 6th just as the George Floyd riots were planned before George Floyd decided to get high and to pass off a fake $20 bill. Now his corrupt family gets $27 million simply because they raised a big dummy for a son. It's very obvious where the stupidity thrives in this country

Understanding the military’s attack on Tucker Carlson 9 replies
Posted by Dreadnought 3/16/2021 9:34:16 PM Post Reply
The U.S. military is pushing woke, “social justice” leftism. Given the importance of this push, its otherwise bizarre attack on Tucker Carlson is not difficult to understand. Let’s step back for a moment. The left has been marching through America’s institutions for decades. The media was in the vanguard. Universities were captured easily. Corporations fell without much resistance. The military is a tougher nut to crack, but its leaders are drawn from a pool not that different from those who run universities and corporations, and these leaders crave approval from the same elites. Universities sometimes select presidents from the military brass.

During the last administration it was hard to go a week or even a day without someone decrying a supposedly appalling “attack” on members of the press by President Donald Trump. These assaults largely consisted of Trump objecting to loaded questions and other gasbaggery from members of the fourth estate. We expect politicians with partisan agendas to spar with journalists. Not so much members of the armed forces speaking in their official capacity, which is what happened last week after Tucker Carlson of Fox News dared to comment about the role of women in the military. The Second Marine Expeditionary Force responded with a snotty, childish tweet

Stephanopoulos asks Biden in a newly released clip of the interview, which will air in full on Wednesday morning at 7 a.m. ET. "Yes," Biden says.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday encouraged his Republican supporters -- one of the main groups resistant to Covid-19 vaccines -- to get their shots. "I would recommend it," Trump said during an interview on Fox News. "I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly," he said. "It's a great vaccine, it's a safe vaccine and it's something that works." This was Trump's most explicit endorsement for the national mass vaccination campaign since he left office in January.

Yaphet Kotto, the actor known for indelible roles in Homicide: Life on the Street, Alien and Midnight Run, as well as for being the first major Black James Bond villain in Live and Let Die, has died. He was 81. Kotto’s wife, Tessie Sinahon, first revealed the news on Facebook, and Kotto’s agent confirmed his death to Variety. “You played a villain on some of your movies but for me you’re a real hero and to a lot of people also.

I can’t understand how anyone involved in this thought it was a good idea but it’s not the first time lately that the military has bent the rules against service members playing politics while in uniform in order to embarrass a populist Republican. The Marine Corps had to apologize for unprofessional behavior a few days ago when one of its social-media accounts started snarking at Tucker Carlson for wondering why pregnant women are allowed to serve. The Pentagon went so far as to issue a press release responding to Carlson with the clickbait-y headline, “Press Secretary Smites Fox Host That Dissed Diversity in U.S. Military.” A Twitter pal recently observed

Georgia elections officials said their description of a much-scrutinized phone call between Donald Trump and a top investigator wasn’t meant to be presented as a “word-for-word transcript” after a recording of the call revealed the former president was misquoted. Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday that the office’s initial report about the conversation between Trump and Frances Watson, the chief investigator, relied on Watson’s recollection. A recording of the conversation, located on a trash folder in Watson’s email account during an open records request, was released last week. It revealed that Trump told Watson she would find “dishonesty” if she scrutinized absentee ballots in Fulton County

With few other viable options, Texas Democrats are hoping that next year former Rep. Beto O’Rourke challenges Republican incumbent Greg Abbott for governor.

On Monday, conservatives were outraged when the Washington Post, in a teeny little paragraph appended to a major story from January, admitted that the core of the story was a lie based upon false quotations. I find myself surprisingly unmoved. First, this is par for the course for the modern Pravda media. Second, as long as there are no consequences, and there never are, it's irrelevant that the Washington Post behaved in a morally corrupt, fraudulent way. This example of moral turpitude from the Washington Post began on January 9.

Election irregularities in the 2020 presidential election continue to be uncovered through independent analysis. An expert team led by physicist and Mensa John Droz, Jr., has been relentlessly examining election-related data and lawsuits since November, uncovering significant anomalies that warrant further investigation. The team’s objective throughout has been to help ascertain that all legal votes – and only legal votes – were counted. These efforts were previously reported out here, here, and here. The team has just completed a “contrast analysis” of Biden versus Trump results in 2020 and Trump versus Clinton results in 2016 that exposes some irregularities that cannot be easily explained.
