“They Should Resign”

After the debacle of 06 January a new metal detector system has been installed to prevent any weapons and such could not get into the Capitol…….everyone including Congress people must enter the detector before entering…..

It appears the some Congress people think they are above the law and have decided that they do not the inconvenience……

Flippantly disregarding a basic safety measure put in place in the wake of last week’s deadly invasion the U.S. Capitol, numerous Republican lawmakers on Wednesday dodged metal detectors as they entered the House chamber to take part in debate over an article of impeachment charging President Donald Trump with inciting the mob attack.

In a series of tweets Wednesday, HuffPost reporter Matt Fuller named the GOP members he watched evade the newly installed magnetometers or walk through the detectors, set them off, and completely disregard their alarms and proceed into the House chamber without consequence.

“This system has been rendered meaningless,” Fuller lamented as one House Republican after another sidestepped the metal detectors, the establishment of which one GOP member called an “atrocity.”

Not to worry these slugs were caught on camera avoiding their duty The article has most of the evidence included).

There will be penalties for stupidity…..

Some Republican lawmakers are furious about new security measures in the House after last week’s Capitol riot, but if they keep trying to dodge the newly installed metal detectors, they’re going to face steep fines. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that lawmakers evading the detectors will be fined $5,000 for a first offense and $10,000 for a second, with the money coming directly out of their House salaries, Fox reports. Several Republicans walked around the detectors or refused to stop after they were set off Tuesday and Wednesday. GOP Rep. Debbie Lesko complained in a tweet that lawmakers were being treated “like criminals,” the Washington Post reports. “We now live in Nancy Pelosi’s Communist America!” said the Arizona lawmaker.

“On behalf of the House, I express my deepest gratitude to the US Capitol Police for the valor that they showed during the deadly insurrection on the Capitol, as they protected the lives of the staff and the Congress,” Pelosi said in a statement announcing the fines Wednesday, per the Hill. “Sadly, just days later, many House Republicans have disrespected our heroes by verbally abusing them and refusing to adhere to basic precautions keeping members of our Congressional community, including the Capitol Police, safe.” Under a new rule introduced Tuesday, lawmakers will also face fines of $500 for a first offense and $2,500 for a second if they refuse to wear masks on the House floor.

Hit them in the pocketbook…..what about the third time or the fourth….so on?

I agree with the first article….make them resign and then ban them from public office.

Just look at the US Constitution….Section Three of the 14th Amendment

I like it!

Let the Constitution punish these traitors to their oath of office.

This is typical of the Repubs….they want laws but do not think they must obey them….and you wonder where the stupid came from….look NO further than the GOP.

Closing Thought–15Jan21

UFOS!

THere has much speculation on what the US government knows about so-called UFOs.

Is there a cover-up?

The CIA has finally released some documents to the public.

Want to know the Central Intelligence Agency’s lowdown on UFOs? If you’ve got the time and the curiosity, download every single file that’s in the public domain, because they’re now available for the taking. Motherboard reports that, after years of behind-the-scenes wrangling, declassified-docs repository the Black Vault has opened an archive where anyone can browse and download PDFs of CIA intel on unidentified aerial phenomena (the agency’s fancy alt name for unidentified flying objects, or UFOs), some of them stretching back to the ’80s. Black Vault founder John Greenewald Jr. says he started filing Freedom of Information Act requests for some of the files back in 1996, and the CIA finally acquiesced, as well as on other previously unreleased records, placing them all on a CD-ROM that Greenewald bought from them sometime last year.

t was like pulling teeth,” he tells Motherboard of his efforts to get the files. The New York Post notes Greenewald’s obsession with filing FOIAs with the CIA and getting his hands on such documents began when he was a teen. Users can either download the entire intel collection as Greenewald originally received it from the CIA (though he says those TIF files are “incredibly difficult” to sift through, as they’re not searchable) or as an easier-to-use file, created by him converting the original TIFs to PDFs. The files can also be downloaded individually. The CIA insists this is everything they’ve got on the matter, though Greenewald notes on the Black Vault site we can’t know if that’s really true. If it actually isn’t, Greenewald is on the case. “Research by the Black Vault will continue to see if there are additional documents still uncovered within the CIA’s holdings,” he vows on his site.

This should give the Ancient Alien crowd something to do….before they spin it in their direction.

Biden Nominates Another Hawk

I have watching and writing about the nominations within the Biden admin….so far I have seen nothing that would lead me to believe that our interventionist policies will NOT change.

He has tapped Samantha Power, a hawk, to run USAID…..

Joe Biden announced that he will nominate Samantha Power to head the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

Power served as ambassador to the UN for President Obama from 2013 to 2017. Before that, she worked on Obama’s National Security Council, where she played an instrumental role in pushing for US intervention in Libya in 2011.

Power argued in favor of US intervention in Libya under the guise of protecting human rights and preventing genocide. She was joined in her crusade by then-Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and Susan Rice, who served as the UN ambassador at the time.

Reports from 2011 say the pressure from Power, Rice, and Clinton is what led Obama to intervene militarily in Libya, even though his other top advisors were against it. Then-Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates would later say that in a “51 to 49” decision, Obama decided to bomb Libya.

The US-NATO intervention in Libya that led to the brutal murder of former Libyan ruler Moammar Gaddafi was an absolute disaster. Destabilizing Libya turned the country into a haven for al-Qaeda-linked militants, resulted in targeted killings of black Africans, sparked a refugee crisis in North Africa, and even led to the creation of slave markets.

For her efforts in convincing Obama to destroy Libya, Power was promoted. As the US ambassador to the UN, Power advocated for US intervention in Syria and stood by as the Obama administration backed the Saudis in their brutal war against Yemen’s Houthis.

While Powers has since taken a public stance against the war in Yemen, she omitted her early role in supporting the vicious war from her memoir that was published in 2019. In the book, Power defended her decision to intervene in Libya and argued that more intervention in Syria could have prevented some of the war’s atrocities.

While it’s not exactly a national security position, Power will have a lot of influence on foreign policy from her future role as the head of USAID. The agency is often used to fund US regime change efforts. For example, in September 2019, USAID announced it would be providing $52 million to Juan Guaido, who the US recognizes as president of Venezuela, despite the fact that Nicolas Maduro holds the office. Earlier in 2019, the US supported Guaido in a failed coup attempt.

So far I am unimpressed by the picks of Biden….but none of it was a surprise to me.

Was It A “Come To Jesus” Moment?

Opening thought–the title alone should generate some interest and most likely some negative comments.

Let the healing begin!

First it would be delusional to even consider that this situation can be “healed”.

Interesting that the Congressional Republicans are starting to call for a come together…a healing process….of our country.

And yet none seems to want to admit their complacency in the events in and around 06 January…..

Republicans have spent the past two months lying about the election being stolen from President Donald Trump and refusing to acknowledge President-elect Joe Biden as the race’s winner.

But after thousands of Trump followers took what they were saying seriously and rioted last Wednesday at the Capitol, leaving five people dead — and as Trump faces impeachment for his role in inciting that riot — those same Republicans are trying to turn the page without any accountability for the role they played in poisoning the minds of their supporters.

“It’s not healthy for the nation,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said Sunday on Fox News of Trump’s possible impeachment. “I’m very concerned about where we’re at. I’m hoping we can come back together.”

https://www.vox.com/2021/1/11/22224872/trump-republican-election-lies-jim-jordan-ted-cruz

Seriously?  After months, nay years of lying to the people and enabling a crazed president to flaunt our Constitution they now want us to forget their crap.

The people with the Bulwark have an excellent idea how the Repubs can help with the healing….

So let us take them at their word. Let us provide them, and their colleagues, the opportunity to becalm the troubled waters.

Here’s how I imagine it might go:

At a joint press conference, a dozen or more of the most prominent figures in the “Stop the Steal” movement gather. There’s Kevin McCarthy, Rep. Steve Scalise, Newt Gingrich, and a claque of Fox News primetime anchors. (Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley are at a separate table, because no one will agree to sit with them.)

Yes, by All Means, Let the Healing Begin

I like some of their ideas but for me it does not go far enough.

I want these so-called people to suffer the way they made the country suffer.

I want them censured, a loss of ALL benefits then removed for office and banned from ever holding an office ever again.

This would apply mostly to all but the ones that need to be targeted are people like Josh Hawley the face of American fascism….

“No one other than President Donald Trump himself is more responsible for Wednesday’s [January 6th] coup attempt at the U.S. Capitol than one Joshua David Hawley, the 41-year-old junior senator from Missouri, who put out a fundraising appeal while the siege was underway.”

Sen. Josh Hawley: The Face of New American Fascism?

This stupidity needs to stop.

But if you think for a minute that this country will heal then you are deluding yourself…..the leaders are still in Congress and still on the air…..little will change in the next four years…..and then we will fight this fight again.

Second Time A Charm?

Yep it is impeachment time again.

A good place to start…..

The federal criminal code (18 USC 373) makes it a crime to solicit, command, induce or “endeavor to persuade” another person to commit a felony that includes the threat or use of physical force. Simply put, it is a crime to persuade another person, or a mob of several thousand, to commit a violent felony.

The federal criminal code makes it a crime for “two or more persons … to oppose by force the authority [of the United States] or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States” (18 USC 2384). That felony, including the use of force, clearly was committed by the mob after being encouraged by the president.

Now act!

After the breaching of the Capitol by protesters the Congress is taking it very seriously and is blaming the president for the instigation of violence and destruction.

For the second time in a couple of years there is a vote in the Congress to impeach the president of the United States….

There were 130 years between the first and second presidential impeachments in American history—and 13 months between the third and fourth. A majority of House members on Wednesday voted to support a a single article of impeachment charging President Trump with “incitement of insurrection,” making Trump the first president to be impeached twice, the AP reports. Roll Call points out the second impeachment differed from the first in that it had bipartisan support, with 10 Republicans, including No. 3 House Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, joining House Democrats. In Trump’s first impeachment, three Democrats broke with their party, but Democrats were unified this time. The final vote Wednesday was 232 to 197.

 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi—the first speaker to oversee two impeachment efforts—said in a floor speech before the vote that Trump is a “clear and present danger to the nation we all love.” “We know we experienced the insurrection that violated the sanctity of the people’s Capitol,” Pelosi said, per the Hill. “And we know that the president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion, against our common country.” House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy argued that while Trump should “accept responsibility” for his role in the violence, a “vote to impeach would further divide this nation,” Politico reports. The next step will be a trial in the Senate, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he won’t bring senators back early for a trial before Trump’s term ends next week.

Why will McConnell NOT convene the SEnate for a vote?

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) office told Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) staff on Wednesday that the GOP will not agree to reconvene the Senate before Jan. 19 to allow an impeachment trial while President Trump is still in office.

A senior Senate Republican aide confirmed that McConnell’s office reached out to Schumer’s office to relay the message that Republicans will not agree to a Friday session to enable House Democrats to present an article of impeachment to the Senate while Trump is in office.

McConnell said in a memo circulated to colleagues last week that the Senate will not be able to handle business on the floor until senators are scheduled to return to Washington on Jan. 19 unless all 100 senators agree to reconvene sooner.

Run The Country Like a Business

How many times in your lifetime have you heard that a business has the skill set to be a good and effective president?

For decades the GOP has been running businessmen as presidential candidates with the slogan that a successful businessman would be best for the country.

First let me say….It Is Bullshit!

I think the last GOP president that was a businessman proved just how much crap that promise is.

A business needs to turn a profit to remain alive…..the government cannot turn a profit when the very people that should know better spend their energy stopping the flow of revenue.

A lot of Americans think the country should be run like a business.

This is a problem on a few levels. Most obviously, a country isn’t a company. Businesses exist to turn a profit; countries do not, and competence in business rarely translates to competence in politics.

Treating the country like a business also encourages Americans to think of themselves as customers rather than citizens. Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner spoke directly to this idea in a 2017 interview: “We should have excellence in government … The government should be run like a great company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers.”

06Jan21–If Only……

Just a few thoughts about the breaching of the Capitol building….after this I will attempt to stay away from this subject unless there is major events breaking.

I was a radical in my younger days….I went to protests and even was arrested….but in my wildest radicalized days I never considered the actions that were perpetrated on this day.

There a few things to consider…..things that would have made me attempt such an afront to the American republic….

If the people who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, and eventually overtook the Capitol, quite easily by the way, with police literally opening gates for them, snapping some selfies, and participating in a few friendly shoving matches before ceding the building completely.

If those people stormed the Capitol because their government had abandoned them for nearly a year while an unprecedented pandemic ravaged the country.

If they stormed the Capitol because the government shut down their jobs and asked them to stay home but didn’t provide stimulus to replace their lost income, didn’t provide rent relief, mortgage relief, debt relief during an unprecedented pandemic.

If they stormed the Capitol because they were recently evicted or on the edge of eviction or their children were going hungry because the government abandoned them during an unprecedented pandemic.

If they stormed the Capitol because they couldn’t afford healthcare in the midst of a health crisis. Because they saw family, friends, coworkers die needlessly because the government abandoned them during an unprecedented pandemic. I would have supported them.

If the people who stormed the Capitol were black and indigenous and fed up with the state violence and oppression and systemic racism they endure every day.

If they stormed the Capitol demanding justice, equality, and reparations for how they and their families and their ancestors have been brutally treated since before this country was a country. I would have supported them.

If the people who stormed the Capitol were environmental activists demanding the government finally act on climate change. Something the government has known was a real crisis for decades and has done nothing to combat.

If they stormed the Capitol because the oceans are warming, the forests are on fire, the coral reefs are bleaching, insects are disappearing, birds are falling out of the sky, and much more disaster will follow if the government doesn’t act now. I would have supported them.

If the people who stormed the Capitol were part of the anti-war movement, disgusted that our military is still in Afghanistan, the longest war in American history, and still in Iraq, a war predicated on lies and misinformation that has killed hundreds of thousands of civilians and displaced over a million.

If they stormed the Capitol because our military is supporting with weapons and logistics the Saudi-led genocide in Yemen which has been deemed the World’s worst humanitarian crisis by the UN, where an estimated 24 million people – close to 80 percent of the population – need assistance and protection.

If they stormed the Capitol for any of those reasons, I would have supported them.

The Pointless Putsch

Even in the most radicalized days of the 60s and 70s….this was NEVER considered (I am sure that there were some wishful thinking back in those days)

I have seen nothing that has happened to warrant such destruction…..I have heard words that were the driving force behind the breach of the Capitol building…..

This was a dark day for Americans….those responsible should be held accountability for their culpability for the violence.  ALL OF THEM!

Is there a possibility that there could be something that can be done about this domestic terrorism?

Yep and it is entitled as the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2019….maybe it is time for this to come out of committee and do something about this violence….

Let The Prosecutions Begin!

Thanx to social media the FBI has starting arresting some of the morons that breached the police line at the Capitol building last Wednesday.

Two of the most high-profile participants in this week’s DC riots have been arrested:

  • Richard Barnett, who was pictured sitting in Nancy Pelosi’s office during the melee, was taken into custody in Little Rock, Arkansas, on Friday, reports CNN. The 60-year-old is charged with entering and remaining in restricted building grounds without authority, violent entry, disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and theft of public property. Barnett spoke publicly after his stunt and admitted taking a personalized envelope from Pelosi’s desk. However, he left a quarter behind and says he didn’t steal it.
  • West Virginia state lawmaker Derrick Evans, who live-streamed himself in the throng, also was charged Friday with illegally entering the Capitol, per West Virginia Metro News. A petition is in the works calling the newly sworn-in Evans to resign, notes NBC News. However, Evans’ attorney says his client “committed no criminal act that day” and will not step down.

The moron with the headdress was arrested and  as well as the idiot that stole Pelosi’s lectern….

You’ve seen the photograph: A guy wearing a Trump beanie smiles and waves in the US Capitol while holding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s lectern. That man, identified as 36-year-old Adam Johnson of Parrish, Fla., was arrested Friday night and is being held on a federal warrant, NBC News reports. Johnson, who is married to a physician and is reportedly a stay-at-home father of five, was booked into Pinellas County jail on charges of unlawfully entering a restricted building, theft of government property, and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, per WLFA, in connection to Wednesday’s violent events at the Capitol. He was quickly identified by residents who saw the viral photo. One of them was Allan Mestal, who tells WFLA that he called the FBI.

“Couldn’t believe it, the fact that I recognize somebody from our hometown, I was floored,” he says. In since-deleted social media posts, Johnson said he was in Washington DC ahead of the riots and spoke out against Black Lives Matter, per the Bradenton Herald. Johnson is among dozens who have been arrested or charged in connection to the events at the Capitol. On Saturday, federal agents arrested Jacob Anthony Chansley—AKA Jacob Angeli, AKA the QAnon Shaman—the New York Post reports. Chansley was seen in the Capitol “dressed in horns, a bearskin headdress, red, white, and blue face paint, shirtless, and tan pants,” according to a Justice Department statement. He is accused of unlawful entry into a restricted building and violent entry and disorderly conduct.

Even lawyers were part of this fiasco…..this one is from Atlanta…..

McCall Calhoun, an attorney from Americus, was among the hundreds in a pro-Trump riot who forced their way into the U.S. Capitol Jan. 6, 2021.

When hundreds of pro-Trump protesters stunned and horrified the nation by forcing their way into the United States Capitol Wednesday, self-described “Anti-Communist Counter-Revolutionary” McCall Calhoun was among the first through the doors.

“The Deep State cannot stop us,” he wrote on Parler, a social media network popular with Trump supporters, “They learned that today when we stormed the Capitol and took it. The word is we’re all coming back armed for war.”

Calhoun, a practicing attorney in Americus for 30 years, admitted his participation in the riot in an exclusive interview with the AJC in which he described the mob as patriotic and heroic.

This tool needs to be disbarred then fully prosecuted.

Let the good times roll!

There should be more arrests coming….and make an example out of the idiots that have been caught.

As the FBI starts arresting the slimy slugs…..what about those behind the scenes that made this day possible?

Like the state AGs that made phone calls….

An arm of the Republican Attorneys General Association, a national group representing the top law enforcement officers in their states, sent out robocalls encouraging people to march to the U.S. Capitol the day before the building was stormed by a pro-Trump mob.

“At 1 p.m., we will march to the Capitol building and call on Congress to stop the steal,” said the voice on the recording, which was obtained by NBC News.

The calls, which did not advocate violence or suggest the building should be breached, was sent out by the Rule of Law Defense Fund, a fundraising arm of the Republican Attorneys General Association. The groups share funding, staff and office space in Washington, D.C.

More info here…..https://documented.net/2021/01/republican-attorneys-general-dark-money-group-organized-protest-preceding-capitol-mob-attack/

What about the state legislators that attended the riot?

Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate and state Sen. Amanda Chase is facing calls to resign after attending the pro-Trump rally in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. Chase addressed a crowd at the event but said she departed “just in time” before a mob began to riot and force its way into the U.S. Capitol.

Chase is one of more than a dozen state lawmakers from across the country who were in the nation’s capital Wednesday, including newly elected West Virginia state Del. Derrick Evans, a Republican who is now facing charges after a video he live-streamed showed him entering the Capitol building.

Republican lawmakers from at least eight other states — Michigan, Missouri, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Alaska, Arizona and Illinois — were present ahead of the riot or said they departed as the mob began to storm. Two outgoing state representatives — Rep. Anthony Kern of Arizona and Rep. Vernon Jones of Georgia, who announced earlier that day he had become a Republican — were in attendance. Another Virginia lawmaker, Del. Dave LaRock, was also at the rally.

These people need to censured and a loss of benefits for contributing to the chaos…..then criminal charges for aiding and abetting.

What would you say if a Supreme Court justice wife was heavily involved in the riot?

Guess what?

Clarence Thomas’ wife was ass deep in the conspiracy to comment violence…..

It has been reported from numerous sources that Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, sponsored 80 busloads of “protesters” to Wednesday’s insurrection at the Capitol. Let’s say each bus held 30 people. That’s over 2,000 individuals. This is in addition to promulgating the lies about Donald Trump’s “stolen election” through her social media up to and including the morning of Wednesday’s insurrection. What’s the likelihood that any one of those 2,400 individuals participated in the seditious attempt at overthrowing our government? Of course, Mrs. Thomas has since deleted the relevant social media posts, but they were already captured.

(Daily Kos)

These people are traitors to the country and no penalty is too great for the lot of them.

There is one twist to this…..Pres. Trump……

A former assistant U.S. attorney raised the unnerving possibility that Donald Trump could pardon his supporters who violently stormed the Capitol on Wednesday.

Five people were dead at the end of the attack, including a police officer.

The chance of a Trump pardon — including for himself — is particularly jarring in this case because the president been accused of inciting the violence.

“If he pardons people who directly attacked our democratic process, committing crimes while they were doing it, how much more egregious, unjust, unfair, inappropriate does a presidential pardon get?” former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said Friday on NBC 4 in Washington.

“It doesn’t get any more democracy-damaging than not being able to hold those folks accountable,” added Kirschner, who spent 30 years prosecuting crimes in the District of Columbia.

This Is America Now!

I know there is lots of blame being spread around for the recent violence and destruction that occurred in DC….but for me the blame lands squarely on the shoulders of Donald the Orange…..President Trump’s words on his supporters that day, including, “You’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength.” Supporters began moving toward the Capitol before he had even finished.
 
Words of sedition!
 
Then all Hell broke loose.
 
WE all know about the breach of the Capitol building by slobbering protesters…..the WV rep that was part of the breach…..or the rhetoric from Trump and his congressional sycophants…..
 
The FBI is starting to identify and arrest some of the traitors that tried and failed to stop the certification of Biden as the winner in 2020.

The FBI and Washington, DC, police are trying to identify members of the mob that stormed the Capitol Wednesday—and they have plenty of photos, some of them taken by the rioters themselves, to help them in that effort. DC police released 26 photos of suspects Thursday and offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to arrests, CBS reports. Most of the “persons of interest” are wanted for unlawful entry. One woman seen outside the Capitol holding what appears to be part of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office sign is wanted for receiving stolen property. Prosecutors say that since almost all the rioters left the Capitol without being arrested, they now have to identify hundreds of suspects from all over the country. More:

  • First federal cases filed. The first federal cases were filed against suspects Thursday, and more than 40 more were filed in a non-federal court, NBC Washington reports. Acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin, the top federal prosecutor in DC, said seditious conspiracy, rioting, and insurrection charges are “on the table” in connection with the riot.
  • FBI asks for tips. The FBI has asked for “tips and digital media” depicting the rioting. The agency “is working closely with our federal, state, and local partners to aggressively pursue those involved in criminal activity during the events of January 6,” FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement. “Make no mistake: With our partners, we will hold accountable those who participated in yesterday’s siege of the Capitol.”
  • Suspect gloats. One of the most high-profile suspects, Jake Angeli, gloated about the riot before leaving the capital for Arizona Thursday. “The fact that we had a bunch of our traitors in office hunker down, put on their gas masks and retreat into their underground bunker, I consider that a win,” he told NBC. Angeli, known as “Q Shaman,” was seen inside the Senate chamber shirtless, wearing a fur headdress with horns.
  • Man who wore company badge fired. Maryland company Navistar Direct Marketing says it has fired an employee who was seen inside the Capitol wearing his employee badge, the AP reports.
  • More firings. Other people fired over social media posts include Rick Saccone, an adjunct professor from Pennsylvania who lost his job at Saint Vincent College after they reviewed his Facebook video from the scene, reports Reuters. In Texas, Goosehead Insurance canned lawyer Paul Davis over an Instagram post in which he said getting tear-gassed at the Capitol was “quite the experience.”
  • Suspects posted evidence on social media. Law enforcement investigators and independent online sleuths have been using social media to identify rioters. Many of those who stormed the Capitol gleefully shared their photos from the scene—or, like West Virginia lawmaker Derrick Evans—livestreamed their entry to the building. “Those who stormed the Capitol didn’t leave social media breadcrumbs for law enforcement to follow to their front doors—they left entire loaves of bread,” writes Sara Morrison at Vox.
  • At least 6 GOP lawmakers were present. The Hill reports that besides Evans, at least five other Republican lawmakers were present at the Capitol rioting. They denied entering the building or participating in violence. Tennessee state Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver denied that violence had even occurred. “Just a whole heck of a lot of patriots here,” Weaver told the Tennessean Wednesday. Missouri state Rep. Justin Hill marched to the Capitol with fellow Trump supporters after skipping his own swearing-in.

Thanx to the idiots that post their crimes proudly on line….the arrests have begun.

Richard Barnett, the man who allegedly broke into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, posed for pictures and stole mail from her desk, was arrested Friday morning in Little Rock, Arkansas, and has been charged with three federal counts.

Barnett allegedly entered the restricted office area and took photographs with his feet propped up on furniture, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

Barnett, who goes by the name “Bigo,” was captured in news media photographs and took an envelope off of Pelosi’s desk addressed to Rep. Billy Long, R-Mo., the complaint says.

 
All these people are seditious pigs in my book…..but there are some that are so low that they need to be publicly dragged over the coals.
 
People like the Oregon GOP rep that allowed the protesters to enter into the building…..
 
 
This person should be barred from ever entering the Capitol building again and should be barred from ever holding public office again for his treason and violated his oath of office.
 
Then there are those police that allow the protesters to enter and start the carnage.
 
Below are the names of the Republican lawmakers in the House and Senate who voted in favor of rejecting electoral votes from Arizona and Pennsylvania, battleground states that Biden carried.
 
 
Is your Representative and/or Senator on the list?
 
Does that make you proud or disgusted?
 
For me it is pathetic and they are traitors to the Constitution and should never be allowed in government again.
I agree with AOC on this front….

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday vehemently rejected a call by Sen. Ted Cruz for lawmakers and Americans to put the current “anger and division behind us,” 24 hours after the senator himself baselessly contested the presidential election results—an action which helped incite a mob of thousands to storm the Capitol building in what has been characterized as an insurrection.

Cruz and other lawmakers who challenged the results “must resign,” the New York Democrat tweeted. “If you do not, the Senate should move for your expulsion.”

MAKE IT SO!

I must share this with you…..

This guy during the breach tasered himself in the balls and died of a heart attack…..
