Insurrection Update #9

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…..

Closing Thought–26Jul21

Let me see….a 30 something that lives with his Mama….has to have a special diet….dresses in shaman’s headdress…paints his bod…..howls…..and thinks he is related to Jesus…..would you think this dude is mentally ill?

The lawyer for the QAnon Shaman has confirmed that his client is off his nutter…..

One of the most recognizable members of the mob that stormed the Capitol has been diagnosed with multiple mental illnesses that include transient schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, his lawyer tells Reuters. Psychologists with the Federal Bureau of Prisons made the findings after testing Jacob Chansley, aka the QAnon Shaman, says attorney Albert Watkins. A shirtless Chansley was widely photographed in the Capitol building wearing a headdress with fur and horns. He faces six charges stemming from the riot, per Insider, but Watkins is now working on a plea deal in the wake of the mental health diagnoses. The test results mesh with what the US Navy found in regard to Chansley back when he served in 2006, Watkins adds.

“What we’ve done is we’ve taken a guy who is unarmed, harmless, peaceful … with a pre-existing mental vulnerability of significance, and we’ve rendered him a chocolate soup mess,” says Watkins. He says his client’s problems have been made worse because of solitary confinement. Prosecutors have generally pushed back against the notion that Chansley is harmless. They say video evidence shows Chansley inside the Senate chamber, where he called then VP Mike Pence a “f—ing traitor” and left behind a threatening note. Watkins, though, says his client is delusional and has expressed the belief that he is directly related to Jesus and Buddha.

Good!

Now put this d/bag in a rubber room for 20 years…..he deserves nothing for his part in the insurrection…..

Period!

Insurrection Update #8

My continuing series on the events and situations around the insurrection of 06 January and the aftermath…..

The “Most Wanted” of the insurrectionists, Evan Neumann, is still cowering like the spineless toad that he is…..

Neumann, 48, of Mill Valley, CA continues to occupy a spot on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. He was captured on police bodycams at the riot wearing a MAGA hat and gas mask and launching both physical and profane verbal attacks against police, the FBI says.

Details of his violent action and profane tirade against police were released by the bureau just three days after Donald Trump ranted that there was “a lovefest” between Capitol Police and the insurrectionists and that the rioters were “tremendous.”

https://www.rawstory.com/evan-neumann/

The riot was a family affair….the family that riots together can go down together….

Relatives have been charged with participating in the January 6 riot at the US Capitol before, but this is the biggest family unit yet: Five members of a Texas nuclear family were arrested Tuesday. Kristi Munn, Tom Munn, Dawn Munn, Josh Munn, and Kayli Munn each face four federal charges, News Channel 10 reports: knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly conduct in a capitol building; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a capitol building. An unidentified minor child was also allegedly brought into the building by the family; that child was not charged, ABC News reports.

A tipster alerted authorities that Kristi Munn posted on social media about having been at the Capitol that day; authorities then combed through the family members’ social media posts to gain information. Tom Munn, for example, allegedly posted, “The only damage to the capital building was several windows and sets of doors. Nothing inside the capital was damaged. I can tell you, patriots NEVER made it to the chamber. There was no violence in the capital building, the crowd was NOT out of control … they were ANGRY!!!”

This illustrate the level of stupidity that these insurrectionists possess…..

A U.S. Capitol rioter who was diverted away from the Senate chamber will be released from jail while he awaits charges.

Doug Jensen, who was wearing a QAnon T-shirt when he confronted Capitol police officer Eugene Goodman during the Jan. 6 insurrection, was granted pretrial release after attorneys convinced District Court Judge Tim Kelly the Donald Trump supporter mistakenly believed he was at the White House.

“This is me touching the f*cking White House,” Jensen says in a newly released cell phone video, his hand placed on the Capitol as the riot raged around him.

https://www.rawstory.com/doug-jensen-iowa/

This gutless wonder did not know the difference between the White House and the Capitol….how proud his Mama must be.

The dangling dipshit in the doom of the Capitol has cowered in the corner and agreed to turn on his fellow insurrectionists….

A man photographed dangling from the Senate balcony and sitting in the presiding officer’s chair during the Jan. 6 Capitol attack has pleaded guilty to felony obstruction of Congress in a deal that will see him cooperate with prosecutors. (You can see the photo from Getty via the Washington Post.) Josiah Colt, 34, of Idaho admitted Wednesday to joining two others from Nevada and Tennessee in raising money, arranging travel, and purchasing paramilitary gear before breaking in to the Capitol building and rushing the Senate chamber, where he believed senators were meeting, reports the Post. Colt, who agreed to pay $1,000 in restitution, admitted to traveling to DC from Tennessee with the intention of obstructing the certification of the election results.

Ronald Sandlin of Memphis had shared a photo of Colt in bed holding a handgun on Jan. 4. “My fellow patriot Josiah Colt sleeping ready for the boogaloo Jan 6,” read the caption. Colt said he did not bring a gun to the Capitol and denied knowing the meaning of “boogaloo”—often used to refer to a violent uprising or civil war—at the time Sandlin used it. But he acknowledged breaching the Senate chamber and sitting in the presiding officer’s chair, mistakenly believing it was Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s chair. US District Judge Thomas F. Hogan recommended 51 months to 63 months in jail and a fine between $20,000 to $200,000, reports CBS News. Colt is due back in court on Oct. 18. Sandlin, 33, accused of punching a police officer, and Nate DeGrave, 31, of Las Vegas are both in custody after pleading not guilty to numerous charges.

The idiots on the Far Right are recruiting using the pandemic as a cover…..

Business Insider reported that far-right militias like the Oath Keepers and Three Percenters have faced legal and recruiting setbacks after the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol — but that they are trying to regroup with a new strategy: pushing anti-vaxxer propaganda.

“Members of the groups use apps such as Telegram to evade scrutiny and plot their next moves, experts told Insider,” reported Tom Porter. “On mainstream platforms such as Facebook they are seeking to pull in new recruits under the anti-vaccine cause. The development marked a new intertwining of two dangerous conspiracy-theory movements, according to Jason Blazakis, Director of Center on Terrorism, Extremism, and Counterterrorism at California’s Middlebury Institute of International Studies.”

According to the report, a Three Percenters affiliated Facebook page known as Mike’s Corner, which has half a million followers, has been selling anti-vaccine merchandise, including a shirt saying “PLANDEMIC: MY BODY, MY CHOICE”. Facebook, which likely made revenue off the page, took it down for violating community standards after Insider reached out to them.

One of the insurrectionists ‘heroes’……

This bitch should have never been allowed as a lawmaker……proof people are stupid to allow this d/bag in Congress.

These fools wanted to kill Dems….

wo California men plotted to destroy the state Democratic headquarters in Sacramento, hoping the attack would inspire a political movement, the Justice Department says. Ian Benjamin Rogers, 45, of Napa, and Jarrod Copeland, 37, of Vallejo, have been indicted by a federal grand jury, NBC reports. The charges include conspiracy to destroy a building with fire or explosives and possession of machine guns. The men had been planning the attack since the presidential election last fall, officials said, and had turned to a militia group for help. Copeland was arrested Wednesday, while Rogers was arrested in January and already faces charges of stockpiling illegal weapons.

Searches of Rogers’ home and business found close to 50 guns, thousands of rounds of ammunition, materials that could be used to produce explosives, and how-to books such as The Anarchist Cookbook, officials said. “I thank the FBI for their work,” the state Democratic chair of Sacramento County said, “but in this day and age we should not be concerned about violence and terrorism just for participating in the democratic process.” This is no way to support a constitutional democracy, the acting US attorney in Sacramento agreed, per KCRA. “Investigation and prosecution of those who choose violence over discussion is as important as anything else we do to protect our free society,” she said

 

 

Insurrection Update #7

I have taken upon myself to keep the memory of the events in and around the 06 January in the minds of my readers…….NOTHING about that day should ever be forgotten.

I will try to write about the events of the day and any info that pertains to the situation in the continuing saga of the insurrection……

These militias…those overweight in- bred mental midgets some of the same thinking has flexed it’s muscle in Washington (the state not the city)….

Tensions are rising in Whidbey Island, Seattle, after residents say a right-wing extremist group is tearing the fabric of the community apart, The Daily Beast reports.

The tension started when the The Washington III Percent militia took control of the local Grange association (a community gathering place) and began rejecting membership applications from anyone not aligned with them. Now, III Percenter flags and bumper stickers have increasingly popped up around town and left-wing rallies.

“They’ve been trying to do this for quite some time now: Extremists running for office, local elections, you know, county councils, state legislatures, things like that,” said Daryl Johnson, a former Homeland Security analyst who runs DT Analytics. “Once it creeps in, if nobody challenges, it becomes the new norm.”

https://www.rawstory.com/far-right-militia-takes-hold-of-island-town-in-washington-they-re-becoming-the-new-norm/

Those participants on 06 January are trying to delete their footprint off social media ahead of their arrest…..proves they are ‘guilty’….

At least 49 people charged in connection with the riots were accused of deleting incriminating content off their social media and phones, the AP found, but only a handful have actually faced charges for tampering with online content.

Experts told the AP, deleting the content shows how desperate the defendants were to manipulate evidence against them once they realized they were in legal trouble and that could make getting a plea deal or any other kind of leniency difficult.

https://www.insider.com/capitol-rioters-deleted-social-media-posts-of-their-involvement-2021-7

The spineless in-breds in the “patriotic’ Oath Keepers are doing what cowards do….turn on everyone around them….

According to a report from the Daily Beast’s Kelly Weill, members of the Oath Keepers militia— reportedly comprised of former law enforcement officers and military vets — are breaking ranks and pointing fingers at each other as they pursue plea bargain deals related to their participation in the Jan 6th Capitol insurrection.

While the Wall Street Journal has been reporting on internal strife as members question how the organization’s founder Stewart Rhoades is funding his “lifestyle” with their dues, others are more concerned with staying out of jail. And if that means providing investigators with information about their compatriots for a lighter sentence or charges being dropped — they don’t have a problem with that.

“In recent weeks, a steady drumbeat of Oath Keepers and their associates have pleaded guilty to crimes related to the Jan. 6 break-in at the U.S. Capitol, and agreed to cooperate with further investigations into the deadly riot. For the Oath Keepers, more so than almost any other group that participated in the break-in, those cooperation agreements could prove troubling to members anxious about catching charges,” Weill wrote. “Of the more than 500 people charged in the riot, members of the Oath Keepers are among the only defendants accused of conspiracy for allegedly plotting the assault on the building, in an attempt to block the certification of President Joe Biden’s election victory.”

https://www.rawstory.com/oath-keepers-riot-2653648268/

Like I said just what I would expect spineless cowards to do.

But what is next?

Some say that August may be the next attempt by these slugs…..and it could, if it occurs, could get messy….

You want to know what has doomed Nancy Pelosi’s attempts to get a bipartisan agreement to investigate the violent assault on the Capitol on Jan. 6? Every time she has talked about why we need a bipartisan commission or the select committee, she said they were necessary “so nothing like this will ever happen again.” 

Republicans aren’t against investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection because they fear it will make them look bad. They’re against doing anything to make sure that such an insurrection doesn’t happen again.

The assault on the Capitol is already damaging to the Republican Party image, at least to outsiders. The Capitol was attacked by a violent mob of Trump supporters. It’s doubtful there were any Democrats among them. The assault took place immediately after a Trump rally on the Ellipse and was incited by the then-president. Several Republican members of Congress joined Trump in addressing the crowd, along with other famous party stalwarts like Rudy Giuliani. It was a Republican rally with a Republican crowd. So was the mob at the Capitol.

https://www.salon.com/2021/07/03/the-next-insurrection-they-dont-have-the-votes-but-theyve-got-the-guns/

One leader had a model of the Capitol….

Federal investigators seized an unusual piece of evidence from a Pennsylvania man indicted last month for his role in the Capitol riot—a Lego replica of the building he allegedly stormed. Robert Morss, 27, is accused of leading fellow rioters in what prosecutors say was “one of the most intense and prolonged clashes” with officers on Jan. 6. According to court documents obtained by Smoking Gun, FBI investigators seized an array of firearms from his home—as well as what the court filings described as a “fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set.” The prosecutors didn’t say whether Morss used his toy to help plan the Capitol insurrection.  Another item seized from Morss was a notebook containing a “Step by Step to Create Hometown Militia,” with steps such as “Ambush” and “Battle Drills” and reminders to “Bring Assault Rifle” and “4 Magazines.”

DOJ charges Floridians in their part in the insurrection…..

The Justice Department unveiled a major indictment Thursday against five Floridians accused of attacking at least seven police officers during the US Capitol insurrection.

Prosecutors say the defendants, all from the Tampa Bay area, repeatedly attacked members of Washington, DC’s police force. They allegedly used stolen riot shields and flagpoles to assault officers in the head and neck, and later resorted to punching, kicking, and elbowing the officers.
 
The indictment includes 19 criminal counts, which is among the most for a Capitol riot case.
 
Then there are those the claim the ‘Bible made them do it’…..
According to a report from the Daily Beast’s Kelly Weill, one of the Capitol rioters taken into custody by the FBI has chosen to represent herself on charges of multiple counts of violent entry, disruptive conduct, and obstruction of Congress — and is citing the Bible as part of her defense.

Prosecutors maintain that Pauline Bauer, owner of a Pennsylvania pizza parlor, took part in the Jan 6th insurrection and reportedly told Capitol police “bring Nancy Pelosi out here now… we want to hang that f*cking b*tch.”

Weill reports that Bauer is using a sovereign citizen defense — saying she doesn’t recognize the laws of the U.S. government — and that she is operating under “divine guidance.”

https://www.rawstory.com/capitol-riot-2653744510/

One insurrectionist gets out with “Time Served”….

A defendant in the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol was given a six-month jail sentence Monday, but because he’s been held since the week after the riot, Michael Curzio will go free Wednesday. Judge Carl Nichols said in federal court that he lacked the authority to impose a longer sentence anyway, CNN reports. “I think that six-month sentence is appropriate here,” Nichols said, nothing that “Mr. Curzio will have, in two days, served that entire sentence.” Curzio took the standard deal offered to riot defendants who didn’t commit violence, pleading guilty to one count of unlawfully protesting in the Capitol and being fined $500 for repairs to the building. “Obviously, I was in the wrong,” Curzio said in court, per ClickOrlando. “I did do it.”

Curzio’s record is the reason he hadn’t been released before trial. He was convicted of attempted murder for shooting the boyfriend of his ex-girlfriend. While in prison, Curzio became a member of a white supremacist gang. He has said that he did that for his own protection and that he’s no longer an active member. But he still has gang tattoos and Nazi markings. On Jan. 6, prosecutors said, Curzio was in a group that invaded the Capitol Visitors Center. Police arrested Curzio and others after they didn’t leave when ordered to. Curzio said he didn’t hear the order to leave but said, “I did parade, demonstrate and picket.” He said he complied during his arrest. “I accept responsibility for my actions and what I did,” Curzio told the judge. More than a dozen other riot defendants are awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty.

From The ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ Files

Closing Thought–12Jul21

South Dakota AG is in a spot of trouble….seems he hit and killed a man with his car…..but like all politicians it was not his fault…..

Jason Ravnsborg is really looking for an out. The South Dakota attorney general who struck and killed Joe Boever with his car back in September of 2020 is now claiming the victim wanted to die. Boever, whose glasses were found inside Ravnsborg’s car and whose lit flashlight was found off the road and near his body, had recently started taking a prescription anti-anxiety medicine, Keloland reports. Ravnsborg’s defense team filed a court document requesting the victim’s psychiatric records. That document quotes Boever’s cousin Barnabas Nemec saying he believes Boever threw himself in front of the car on purpose.

The filing claims that Boever was working his way through a bottle of Lorazepam faster than prescribed, and that the common medicine can cause suicidal ideation. It also says evidence points to Boever walking in the road instead of the shoulder. That’s a take that another cousin, Nick Nemec, disputes, the Daily Beast reports. “Joe was on the shoulder of the road,” he said, “So, that, I would think, would indicate he wasn’t out trying to jump in front of a car.” He also said that he’d seen no indication that Boever was suicidal. Prosecutors say Ravnsborg had been using his phone while driving shortly before the accident, per the Argus Leader

Scapegoating the victim…..a great American legal tradition.

No one knows what was in the ind of the victim other than himself…..this defense is as old as this country…..use someone who cannot testify as the culprit.

Insurrection Update

MY continuing series to keep the deeds and the the people involved in the attack on the republic in the minds of my readers.

You remember that in-bred moron with the buffalo hat and the painted skin that went through the Capitol yelling and singing (I cannot imagine how badly off key that was)……

It seems that ‘titty baby’ that needed a special diet is being handed over for a psych eval…..

The man who wore no shirt, a fur-lined hat with horns, face paint, and carried a spear with a flag on it into the US Capitol Building during the Jan. 6 attack has been ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation. You may know Jacob Anthony Chansley as Jake Angeli or possibly as the QAnon shaman. He’s the one who requested organic food in prison for hard to parse religious beliefs, and has been characterized as having a “detachment from reality” by a DC federal judge. He’s been detained since January, but the exam will take place in a facility in Colorado he’s been housed at since June 10, the Hill reports.

At issue is whether Chansley is competent to stand trial, a question raised by his own lawyer. Albert Watkins, Chansley’s attorney, argued that months in prison have taken a mental health toll, the Washington Post reports. The case’s prosecutors did not raise any objection to the evaluation. This isn’t the first time that Chansley’s lawyer has questioned his client’s faculties. Watkins told Talking Points Memo that his client and some of the other Jan. 6 defendants “are people with brain damage.”

Sounds more like a defense ploy than a fact…..say one is batcrap crazy to avoid being held accountable for his acts.

The first sentence has been handed down for a Capitol attacker….

An Indiana woman on Wednesday became the first defendant to be sentenced in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the US Capitol and avoided time behind bars. And a member of the Oath Keepers extremist group pleaded guilty in a conspiracy case and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors in a major step forward for the massive investigation. The two developments signal that the cases against those charged in the deadly siege are slowly advancing, the AP reports, even as the US Department of Justice and the courthouse in Washington, DC, struggle under the weight of roughly 500 federal arrests across the nation. And it comes as Republicans attempt to play down the violence committed by members of the mob supporting former President Trump. Graydon Young, who was accused alongside 15 other members and associates of the Oath Keepers of conspiring to block the congressional certification of President Biden’s electoral victory, pleaded guilty to two counts: conspiracy and obstruction of an official proceeding.

It was the first guilty plea in the conspiracy case against members of the group. The second charge calls for up to 20 years in prison, but US District Judge Amit Mehta said federal sentencing guidelines call for Young to serve 5¼ to 6½ years. Prosecutors may seek less time in exchange for his cooperation against other defendants. Young, 55, of Englewood, Florida, was arrested in February and charged in the conspiracy case accusing members of the Oath Keepers of coming to Washington prepared to use violence and intent on stopping the certification of the vote. Anna Morgan Lloyd, 49, of Indiana, was ordered by a federal judge to serve three years’ probation, perform 120 hours of community service, and pay $500 in restitution after admitting to unlawfully entering the Capitol. She pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor charge under a deal with prosecutors. After the riot, Lloyd described Jan. 6 on Facebook as the “best day ever.” On Wednesday, she apologized to the court, her family and “the American people,” saying she went to Washington that day to peacefully show her support for Trump.

Personally I think these are too light.

An apology?

Screw her!

She deserves to be exposed to the maximum for her actions…..to the point that her penalty follows her for the rest of her and their lives.

“I did nothing wrong”  This seems to be the common defense for those idiots that breached the Capitol…..

A former long-haul truck driver in Washington state facing misdemeanor charges for entering the US Capitol building after marching with the Proud Boys on Jan. 6 said he expects to receive an additional felony charge for lying to the FBI.

Jeff Grace told an FBI agent who interviewed him at his home in Battle Ground, Wash. on Jan. 21 that he and his son, Jeremy, traveled to DC to attend the rally for Donald Trump, but he said the two got separated before he entered the Capitol. Jeff Grace was arrested on Feb. 4, and charged with entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly conduct in a Capitol building, and parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.

Jeremy Grace was arrested almost four months later, after the FBI retrieved a deleted video in which the father and son can be seen together inside the Capitol.

https://www.rawstory.com/jeff-grace/

Did nothing wrong?

Maybe these low IQ in-bred dingle berries should have spent more time in school and less time helping their uncle make meth and then they may understand what THEY DID WRONG!

There are those like myself that think the rhetoric and the actions of lawmakers on and around 06 January should be barred from ever holding office again…..

Calling on election officials across the U.S. to recognize that the nation “is at a critical crossroads,” a non-profit legal advocacy group on Tuesday cited the 14th Amendment as it demanded Republicans who aided the January 6 insurrection—including former President Donald Trump—be barred from holding public office in the future.

The democracy watchdog Free Speech for People sent letters to the secretaries of state of all 50 states as part of its 14point3 campaign, calling attention to Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which states:

No Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.

https://www.rawstory.com/watchdog-says-insurrectionist-lawmakers-including-trump-should-be-barred-from-public-office/

I agree….throw the worthless slugs out in the street covered with honey and feathers.

Then there are the warnings from the spineless slugs that support Trump and their ominous words…..

CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan traveled to former President Donald Trump’s weekend rally in Ohio and spoke to some of his supporters who warned of more violence like that witnessed at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

In a CNN clip posted to his Twitter page, O’Sullivan interviewed one Trump supporter who was convinced the former president would be reinstated by August. He espoused a fictional conspiracy theory holding that the “military” already knows Trump won the 2020 election by “over 80 percent.”

“He’s coming back,” the supporter said.

“And what if that doesn’t happen?” asked O’Sullivan, pointing out that the Constitution doesn’t have a mechanism to “reinstate” a defeated president.

“We’re gonna be in a civil war,” the supporter said. “Because the militia will be taking over.”

A Murderer Gets His Due

The policeman that killed Floyd has been convicted of his crimes and now he has been sentenced.

Derek Chauvin is going to prison for the murder of George Floyd. A judge in Minneapolis on Friday sentenced the former city police officer to 22 and a half years behind bars, reports the AP. Prosecutors had asked for 30 years, while Chauvin’s legal team said he deserved only probation. The 45-year-old Chauvin was previously convicted of murder and manslaughter charges after he pinned his knee to Floyd’s neck and kept it there for more than nine minutes during an arrest in May 2020. With good behavior, he could be paroled in 15 years. Prior to sentencing, Chauvin himself addressed the court, per the Star Tribune:

  • Examples of other statements before the sentencing, per CNN:

    • Chauvin’s mother: “It’s been difficult for me to hear and read what the media, public and prosecution team believe Derek to be an aggressive, heartless and uncaring person,” said Carolyn Pawlenty. “I can tell you that is far from the truth.” Chauvin is a “good man,” she said.
    • Floyd’s brother: “On behalf of me and my family, we seek the maximum penalty,” said Terence Floyd. “We don’t want to see no more slaps on the wrist. We’ve been through that already… no, no, no, no.”
    • Floyd’s daughter: 7-year-old Gianna Floyd delivered a victim impact statement via video. Asked what she would tell her father if she could see him again, she answered, “It would be I miss you and I love you.”
    • Another brother: “Every day, I have begged for justice to be served, reliving the execution of George while others begged and pleaded for officer Chauvin to simply just allow George to take a breath,” said Philonise Floyd. “I haven’t had a real night’s sleep because of the nightmares I constantly have, hearing my brother beg and plead for his life over and over again. Even saying, ‘They’re going to kill me, please, officer,’ screaming for our mom.'”
    • More to come: This is far from the end of the Chauvin-Floyd saga. Chauvin will almost certainly appeal, plus he faces separate federal civil rights charges. And three other fired Minneapolis officers are awaiting trials of their own.
       

     

One down many more to go…..use this and get justice where justice is needed.

Not to worry…..Chauvin will probably become the darling (in more ways than one) of the imprisoned white supremacists…..or he will find religion (a usual occurrence)…..either way he will have 22.5 years to contemplate his actions.

#AbbotHatesDogs

Closing Thought–24Jun21

Texas is a wonderful place.

They love to suppress the vote, their guns but somehow they hate dogs.

Why would anyone say that?

First since Gov. Abbot is the leader of the state…then he represents the people of that state…..

But how does that translate to hating dogs?

Easy Abbot has vetoed a bill that is anti-cruelty to dogs……

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) vetoed 20 bills passed by the GOP-controlled state Legislature, most of them announced Monday, The Texas Tribune reports. Abbott canceled two criminal justice reform bills prioritized by House Speaker Dade Phelan (R), a bill requiring schools to teach high school and middle school students about child abuse prevention and domestic violence, another one expanding rural broadband access, and legislation offering reduced penalties for criminal trespassing, arguing it would hurt tools to arrest homeless people and immigrants at the border.

Abbott also vetoed a bill Friday that would have banned tethering dogs outside with heavy chains, earning him the ire of dog owners and the hashtag #AbbottHatesDogs, the Houston Chronicle reported Monday. The bill, which would have expanded and clarified the state’s animal cruelty laws, had the support of animal control officers, law enforcement agencies and organizations, county prosecutors, and advocates for animals, and it passed 28-3 in the Senate and 83-32 in the House.

What part of this bill deserved the veto?

Sorry but you people elected this piece of manure…..ergo the state hates dogs.

The next time we go on a road trip and pass through Texas I will be sure to let MoMo out so she can crap on the state.

Insurrection Update

My continuing series to keep the spotlight on the traitorous pigs that participated in the breach of 06 January…..

First what did Tsar Vlad have to say about the riot of in-bred morons?

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is to meet President Biden at a summit Wednesday, has suggested that the hundreds of people arrested for rioting at the US Capitol are being subjected to “persecution for political opinions,” per the AP. The context: Putin is likely to come under strong criticism from Biden at their meeting in Geneva for moves against his political opponents in Russia, particularly the imprisonment of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, the detention of thousands of demonstrators protesting his arrest, and the outlawing of Navalny’s organizations as extremist. “You are presenting it as dissent and intolerance toward dissent in Russia,” Putin said in an interview with NBC News. “We view it completely differently.” He then pointed to the Jan. 6 unrest in Washington.

“Do you know that 450 individuals were arrested after entering the Congress?” he said. “They came there with political demands.”

One of the in-bred slugs that broke into Pelosi’s office has his moment in the spotlight….

An accused Capitol rioter who was pictured with his foot on Nancy Pelosi’s desk during the January 6 insurrection did an interview with Russian state TV ahead of a summit between US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Richard Barnett appeared on Russian state TV with his attorney Joseph McBride on Sunday. The interview was first reported on by the Daily Beast.

https://www.businessinsider.com/accused-capitol-rioter-interviewed-on-russian-state-tv-2021-6

Was he paid for the interview?

Then there is the idiot rioter that wants to run for state office…..

A New Hampshire man who admitted in a media interview to entering the Capitol and drinking wine he stole from a lawmaker’s office said he’s running to unseat Democrat Ann Kuster as state representative.

There was just one small problem with Jason Riddle’s plan to run for the statehouse.

Kuster serves in the U.S. House of Representatives, a fact that reporter Katherine Underwood pointed out during an interview with Riddle that aired on Sunday. That resulted in this exchange:

Political Candidate Charged In Capitol Riot Learns Mid-Interview He’s Running For the Wrong Seat

As with most morons in the insurrection ranks….this guy gives a new meaning to the word…STUPID!

Legal news about those that have been arrested….

Josh and Jessica Bustle have reached a plea agreement for their participation in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. Jessica infamously posted on social media that Vice President Mike “Pence is a traitor.”

The couple was charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, knowingly engaging in disorderly or disruptive conduct in restricted building or grounds, violent entry and disorderly conduct on capitol grounds, and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in Capitol buildings.

“Several tips were received indicating that Jessica BUSTLE and her husband Joshua BUSTLE were present at the Capitol and entered the building,” said the Statement of Facts from the Justice Department. “These tips included Facebook postings which appear to have been made by Jessica BUSTLE.”

Full extent of the law….throw that book at these slugs.

What is it that Yogi would say?  “It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over”

Intel says that there could be more violence of the horizon……

A new federal intelligence report warns that adherents of QAnon, the conspiracy theory embraced by some in the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol, could target Democrats and other political opponents for more violence as the movement’s false prophecies don’t come true.

Many QAnon followers believe former President Donald Trump was fighting enemies within the so-called “deep state” to expose a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibals operating a child sex-trafficking ring. Trump’s loss to President Joe Biden disillusioned some believers in “The Storm,” a supposed reckoning in which Trump’s enemies would be tried and executed. Some adherents have now pivoted to believing Trump is the “shadow president” or Biden’s victory was an illusion.

The report was compiled by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security and released Monday by Senator Martin Heinrich, a New Mexico Democrat. It predicts that while some QAnon adherents will pull back, others “likely will begin to believe they can no longer “trust the plan” referenced in QAnon posts and that they have an obligation to change from serving as “digital soldiers” toward engaging in real-world violence.”

To illustrate how delusional the in-bred morons that stormed the Capitol truly have become….

Drew Griffin, who put together the upcoming special “Assault on Democracy: The Roots of Trump’s Insurrection,” opened up about some of what he learned by speaking with Capitol rioters

“The participants almost universally had a delusional view that nothing serious happened that day, and those facing very serious charges are failing to grasp the seriousness that they themselves are in,” said Griffin. “Their relatives describe something far different, describing their own loved ones as being radicalized by this cult of lies around a president.”

As an example, Griffin showed part of his discussion with Donovan Crowl, a retired Marine and member of the far-right paramilitary group the Oath Keepers, who is facing multiple charges stemming from his invasion of the Capitol — but who doesn’t view it as a serious situation. “I was hanging out with some of the wrong people it seems like, but I didn’t really do anything, so I feel pretty good that my case is going to come out and show that.”

A couple of the morons….

A U.S. Capitol rioter says he attacked a police officer during the Jan. 6 insurrection because the officer made fun of the Donald Trump supporters violently storming the building.

Newly released video shows 54-year-old Thomas Webster, a Marine Corps veteran and former New York City police officer, screaming profanities at officers and striking at least one of them with a flagpole before tackling the officer, but his defense attorneys intend to blame the victim for the attack, reported MSNBC’s Scott MacFarlane.

“Showing little regard for the peaceful protesters present, Officer N.R. can be seen reaching over the metal barrier and pushing a peaceful male protester wearing a maroon sweatshirt who was blinded by pepper spray,” a court filing says. “Officer N.R. can also be observed mocking several protesters who were complaining about this Officer’s excessive use of force.”

https://www.rawstory.com/thomas-webster/

Then there is the chest thumbing moron…..

Waco Tribune-Herald reported that a man from Gatesville, Texas who claimed he felt “invincible” storming the Capitol is among the many arrested by the FBI for their involvement in the incident.

Stacy Wade Hager, 57, was arrested May 27 in Waco after someone who saw his Facebook posts alerted federal authorities.

“Photos from the riot show Hager wearing a ‘Trump’ baseball cap and carrying a Texas flag. Hager is seen on a video talking to a District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department officer outside the Capitol, according to records in his case. The officer told Hager, ‘Nah, nah, I get it, you are just walking up behind our line,’ according to federal records,” wrote the Waco Tribune-Herald. “‘Hager then responded: ‘Actually that was my purpose.’ The MPD officer continued, ‘If you could not, we are all trying to stay safe and get home.’ Hager replied, ‘I know you are and I really appreciate y’all.’ However, Hager continued to walk past the MPD officer and through the barricades where he was instructed by police not to go,’ according to federal records.”

Finally….the FBI is investigating the ties that Stone, Jones and the insurrectionists in the Capitol breach…

The Justice Department and the FBI are investigating whether high-profile right-wing figures — including Roger Stone and Alex Jones — may have played a role in the Jan. 6 Capitol breach as part of a broader look into the mind-set of those who committed violence and their apparent paths to radicalization, according to people familiar with the investigation.

The investigation into potential ties between key figures in the riot and those who promoted former president Donald Trump’s false assertions that the election was stolen from him does not mean those who may have influenced rioters will face criminal charges, particularly given U.S. case law surrounding incitement and free speech, the people said. Officials at this stage said they are principally seeking to understand what the rioters were thinking — and who may have influenced beliefs — which could be critical to showing their intentions at trial.

One insurrectionist is trying to find a way to lessen the penalty for her actions on 06 January….

An Indiana woman, expected Wednesday to be the first of more than 400 people charged in the Capitol attack to be sentenced, has agreed to plead guilty to a single federal charge, saying movies and books have showed her what life is like for nonwhite people. In a letter to the judge, Anna Morgan-Lloyd of Bloomfield apologized for entering the Capitol building and failing to remove herself from a violent crowd. Had she done so, violent participants “may have lost the nerve to do what they did,” wrote the 49-year-old grandmother, per the Indianapolis Star. “For that I am sorry and take responsibility.” Attached to her letter were movie and book reports for Schindler’s List, which tells of a factory owner’s efforts to save 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust, and Just Mercy, which explores Bryan Stevenson’s career fighting against racial injustice in the legal system.

Morgan-Lloyd said she’d “lived a sheltered life,” per HuffPost. But “I’ve learned that even though we live in a wonderful country, things still need to improve. People of all colors should feel as safe as I do to walk down the street.” On Facebook, she’d described Jan. 6 as the “best day ever,” adding she was among “the first 50 people” inside the Capitol, per WUSA. But she now says she’s “ashamed” at how the events of the day unfolded. Initially charged with four counts, she’ll plead guilty to misdemeanor parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building in exchange for three years probation, a $500 fine, and 40 hours of community service, per WUSA. Acting US Attorney Channing Phillips has agreed to the deal, acknowledging her remorse, lack of criminal history, and cooperation. Authorities note she didn’t engage in violence or damage property.

I do not trust her sincerity….she believes lies and passes on more lies and yet she had no idea….(A-Choo…sorry I am allergic to bullshit)

TO all participants….Time to hit these worthless slugs with the MAX in fines and jail time….they deserve NO consideration at all.

Give this country the justice it deserves for the country deserves justice for the crimes inflicted on it.

Biden Takes On Domestic Terrorism

After a rise in hate groups over the last decade and then the breach of the Capitol on 06 January Biden has decided to take on the situation of domestic terrorism (about damn time)……

The Biden administration says it will enhance its analysis of threats from domestic terrorists, including the sharing of intelligence within law-enforcement agencies, and will work with tech companies to eliminate terrorist content online as part of a nationwide strategy to combat domestic terrorism.

The National Security Council on Tuesday released the strategy, which comes more than six months after a mob of insurgents loyal to President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress was voting to certify Joe Biden’s presidential win.

“Domestic terrorism — driven by hate, bigotry, and other forms of extremism — is a stain on the soul of America,” Biden, who’s traveling in Europe, said in a statement. “It goes against everything our country strives for and it poses a direct challenge to our national security, democracy, and unity.”

(Market Watch)

Under Federal law, “domestic terrorism” is defined as “activities that involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population, to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion, or to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.”

The Biden plan is a 4 pillar approach…..

PILLAR 1: UNDERSTAND AND SHARE DOMESTIC TERRORISM-RELATED INFORMATION

PILLAR 2: PREVENT DOMESTIC TERRORISM RECRUITMENT AND MOBILIZATION TO VIOLENCE

PILLAR 3: DISRUPT AND DETER DOMESTIC TERRORISM ACTIVITY

PILLAR 4: CONFRONT LONG-TERM CONTRIBUTORS TO DOMESTIC TERRORISM

Something needs to be done….this is a pretty good start but more will need to be done to protect our nation from those in-bred morons that commit domestic terrorism against this nation.

If you would like to see just what the president and his team want to accomplish then read the plan for yourself….

Click to access National-Strategy-for-Countering-Domestic-Terrorism.pdf

Like I stated….a good start but success will depend on the cooperation of all agencies involved….and I foresee a problem there.

We need to assure the American people (those with half a brain that is) that the events of 06 January was a one off and will never occur again.

Can this plan guarantee that?

Thoughts?
