My continuing series looking at the day of infamy, 06 January, and the events swirling around that could assist in yet another attempt to take over the government.
All the whining and bluster can be summed up by one Capitol rioter…..
“We weren’t there to steal things,” Kiczenski, who entered the Capitol on January 6, said, according to the book excerpt. “We weren’t there to do damage. We were just there to overthrow the government.”
That one statement alone should tell you everything you need to know about the day and the riot.
This is what wild conspiratorial BS wrought…..
Jarrod Copeland and Ian Rogers, who are part of a militia group linked to the Three Percenter network, are facing federal and state charges for their “specific, detailed, and serious” plot to attack a government building, destroying evidence, assembling bombs, and owning illegal machine guns.
Prosecutors say the two men started hatching their plot on November 25, a few weeks after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election.
“It will send a fucking message, man… Scare the whole country,” Rogers told Copeland in text messages recovered by the government.
They initially talked about attacking the governor’s mansion but then shifted focus to the Democratic headquarters in Sacramento. According to prosecutors, they spent nearly two months planning their attack: they reviewed maps of the building’s layout, and discussed weaponry in-depth. They weighed various options; riddling it with gunfire, setting pipe bombs, or fire-bombing it.
Then there is the idiot that decided to defend herself….and uses stupidity as a defense….
A court hearing for MAGA rioter Pauline Bauer went off the rails on Monday after she began yelling at the judge while declaring herself a “sovereign citizen.”
NBC 4 Washington’s Scott MacFarlane reports that Bauer, who infamously called for the hanging of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during the Capitol riots, immediately went off the deep end by telling the judge that she is not subject to American laws.
According to MacFarlane, Bauer during her court hearing repeatedly interrupted the judge while also demanding that the court recognize her own personal judicial authority.
“Every man is independent of all laws, except those of nature,” declared Bauer, who decided to represent herself in court.
I have garden slugs that have more brains than this twat…..Burn Her Ass!
Now on to the actual Capitol rioters…..
A Florida man who breached the Senate chamber carrying a Trump campaign flag was sentenced Monday to eight months behind bars, the first resolution for a felony case in the Capitol insurrection, per the AP. Paul Allard Hodgkins apologized and said he was ashamed of his actions on Jan 6. Speaking calmly from a prepared text, he described being caught up in the euphoria as he walked down Washington’s most famous avenue, then followed a crowd of hundreds up Capitol Hill and into the Capitol building. “If I had any idea that the protest … would escalate (the way) it did … I would never have ventured farther than the sidewalk of Pennsylvania Avenue,” Hodgkins told the judge. He added: “This was a foolish decision on my part.”
Prosecutors had asked for Hodgkins to serve 18 months behind bars, saying in a recent filing that he, “like each rioter, contributed to the collective threat to democracy” by forcing lawmakers to temporarily abandon their certification of Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory over President Trump and to scramble for shelter from incoming mobs. His sentencing could set the bar for punishments of hundreds of other defendants as they decide whether to accept plea deals or go to trial. He and others are accused of serious crimes but were not indicted, as some others were, for roles in larger conspiracies. Hodgkins pleaded guilty last month to one count of obstructing an official proceeding, which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop lesser charges, including entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct.
BS! This tool should have served the full sentence…..I do not care if he apologized….there has got to be a lesson for stupidity.
8 months? Tommy Chong of Cheech and Chong fame, was given 9 months for selling a bong…..and his ‘crime’ did not involve violence or destruction…..
And then there are the idiots that boast about their violence on social media…..and they get busted.
Andrew Quentin Taake was arrested Friday by the FBI, which has accused him of pepper-spraying officers and striking them with a metal “whip-like device” at the January 6 Capitol riot.
And apparently it was Taake’s online dating foray that helped get him in trouble.
Taake, 32, of Houston, was tipped off to the FBI by someone who said they hadn’t met him — but was texting with him about the riot — on Bumble.
“Witness 1 messaged Taake on a dating app, Bumble, while he was in Washington, D.C.,” prosecutors allege. “Although Taake and Witness 1 never met in person, Taake discussed his participation in the riot with Witness 1 and sent Witness 1 several pictures of himself, including a picture of himself taken on January 6, 2021, after he was allegedly pepper sprayed by law enforcement officers. Witness 1 said Taake admitted to being inside the U.S. Capitol for approximately 30 minutes.”
This goes to show just how mentally challenged these in-bred slugs truly are.
These idiots are turning on each other trying to get a better deal from the government….
Authorities in Ohio have arrested a suspect in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, after a fellow rioter allegedly identified him and provided investigators with his phone number.
Erik Rau was arrested Thursday after being identified by fellow Central Ohioan Derek Jancart, Columbus’ ABC affilate reports.
“Court documents say Jancart admitted to entering the building with Rau and provided investigators with Rau’s phone number,” the station reported. “After a search warrant was filed, phone records show Rau was at the Capitol during the insurrection.”
Jancart was arrested in February after being identified by a former co-worker in a photo he posted on Facebook showing him inside the Capitol, the Columbus Dispatch reported. “We’re in,” Jancart wrote in the caption.
Gutless cowards are doing what cowards do…..running scared when not part of the horde…..
