America really does have an endless supply of angry, potato-faced middle aged white guys who have a great deal to "play army men" and indulge these bizarre impulses.
The fucked up thing is that they're not poor as they have endless funds for militia gear, a hundred guns, shields, tactical gear, plane tickets, logo t-shirts and hoodies. I imagine the average insurrectionist makes $100,000 a year!

1.07 into the documentary. There's that wooden platform and scaffold with a noose hanging from it. Lucky they didn't catch Pence or Pelosi.
I 100% believe the mob would have killed both of them if they had been able to find them.

Watched it this afternoon. It's chilling. This was an armed rebellion against the United States. One of the most disturbing moments was the participation of an active-duty, Marine Corps officer, Major Christopher Warnagiris. He should be courtmartialed for treason. Also beyond the pale was the Republican representative who dismissed this violent insurrection as nothing, after watching him blockading the doors of the House against these rebels. Unconscionable.
After watching that video -- which every American should see -- I cannot ever again support Republicans. Adam Kinzinger and Lynne Cheney are the only elected ones who have a shred of character and decency...flawed as they are.

Yeah, the number of semi-interested foot-dragging cops really didn't help much that day, did they? Why didn't they have semi-automatic weapons and just start mowing these criminals down to regain order? After blowing some heads off I think the afternoon would have gone smoother. They'd rather whine about Nancy Pelosi and libruls while allowing the GOP Senators to shut down a full investigation. They make me sick!
As I've said before it would actually have been better if twenty cops were killed on January 6th. Maybe they'd remember who to whine about, and then there'd be fewer criminal cops to kill civilians on the street. A real win/win!

They had to know what the result of their negligence would be. It was obvious what would happen. They must be held accountable for the deaths they caused.

What do they want?
They want their country BACK - in the 20th Century.
Social change frightens them to death.
They want the country they thought they had: when men marrying men was impossible; where those who considered it died of AIDS.
They want back that country where no woman would seriously dream of running for high office; and where if one did, would be stricken down by a strong male WASP.
They want a country where a Black man didn’t sit in a White House. They wanted a return to a time when advertisers dare not show interracial happy families for fear of offending those who had money.
They had finally begun to rid their country of that nightmare. They replaced the aberrant President with an exaggerated return of the remembered country. A country where token minorities served in token roles. Where women did what men wanted done. Where the social order was restored.
And then, just as they were relaxing into the remembered country’s return, their leader was overthrown by the Black Man’s partner.

[quote]The fact that the cops didn't use their guns makes NO SENSE
It has been explained multiple times that they didn't shoot at the rioters because they knew the rioters were armed and a bloodbath would ensue.
This is such a simple, basic, easy concept to understand. If the police had started shooting into the crowd, there would have been mass casualties on all sides.
And the end result would be that the insurrectionists would have been seen as VICTIMS. It would have been a huge win for those who organized the coup, and in fact I would bet ANYTHING they were expecting more people to be shot by the police, so they could milk it for sympathy and victimhood talking points.

I read an interview with some CP officers & they knew that the rioters had guns; they were afraid if the started shooting, the rioters would see it as an invitation to start shooting as well & it would turn into a bloodbath.
I wonder what ever happened to the CP officer videoed taking selfies with the rioters.

That's really when this current wave of far-right domestic terrorism started. The 2008 election had a lot of interference from online trolls, like those "PUMAs" who were pretending to be Democrats angry at the "sexism" behind Hillary Clinton not getting the nomination. They encouraged women to vote McCain instead since Palin was on the ticket. It worked really well for about two months and then lost most of its influence, though the PUMAs continued to try to convince people to vote against Democrats.
But it was a pretty good trial run for online trolling influence campaigns, and the Tea Party that sprang up after Obama was elected did a better job than the PUMAs. Let's not forget the Republicans were trying to cheat in 2012 as well, when Rove went psycho on live TV when Obama won states he wasn't "supposed to."
By 2016 they had perfected the online trolling influence campaigns and the cheating, and had help from foreign influences. It's no wonder that by 2020, it had all escalated to the point that it lead to an actual coup attempt.
If social media doesn't cut off the head of this foreign-and-Republican propaganda beast, we'll have more events like January 6th.

R33, I don't doubt an after-the-insurrection explanation came forward — that the Captiol Police didn't want to shoot for fear of a bloodbath. But that doesn't make a lick of sense. Cops — every single day of their life — are trained to use their guns that are strapped to their waists. De-escalation is NOT a typical police-force reaction. Just ask Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger... Not shooting — even warning shots — doesn't make ANY sense.
|by Anonymous||reply 36||July 1, 2021 12:15 PM|
There were multiple articles saying that they were told beforehand to not shoot. I know that at least one of the Capital Police who came forward and talked to the press about how they were let down by their commanders mentioned it.
They weren't shot at, therefore not shooting makes perfect sense.

[quote] Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn, who has spoken of the racial slurs he endured while defending the Capitol, told Forbes it’s “good” the committee was approved but he “didn’t think it would be that close.”
[quote] The committee was approved 222-190, with all House Republicans except Reps. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) and Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) voting against it.
[quote] “I mean, I’m angry,” D.C. Police Officer Michael Fanone, who was injured in the attack, told Forbes of the number of GOP “no” votes, adding that he was “shocked but not surprised.”
[quote] Fanone said he was present in the chamber for the debate preceding the vote only for “what I could stomach,” calling Republican arguments against the committee “the same old song.”
[quote] Gladys Sicknick, the mother of Brian Sicknick, a Capitol police officer who died following the attack, said she “couldn’t believe” how many Republicans voted no, adding, “I just don’t believe anybody could vote no, it doesn’t make sense.”
[quote] “I try not to take these things personally, but it’s very personal for me. I almost lost my life that day. I watched a lot of my friends almost lose their lives,” Fanon told Forbes of his reaction to the vote.
[quote] Republicans argued that the membership breakdown of the committee – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appoints all 13 members, with only five in consultation with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy – made the probe “partisan.” Rep. Michelle Fischbach (R-Minn.), who previously voted against an independent commission that was blocked by Senate Republicans, claimed, "Democrats refuse to put together a truly bipartisan commission."
[quote] The officers were mostly visited in the chamber by House Democrats, as well as Cheney. Pelosi and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), who escorted the officers and Sicknick during their trip to the Capitol, both recounted how they remarked on the number of “no” votes.

[quote]We were trained in what to do if gunmen tried to storm the Capitol, but we were not trained in what to do if hundreds of people, egged on by the president of the United States, decided to rush the building and disrupt certification of the votes of the electoral college, not with an armed assault — although some had weapons — but with numbers. Huge numbers.
[quote]...the reality is that every instinct of those police officers was to not shoot, and for a number of reasons. Left alone or in small groups because of leaders’ lack of preparation for this event, each of these officers had to ask themselves the most horrible of questions: What is happening behind me? When do I kill 16 of the 1,000 people in front of me with the ammunition I have in my Glock 22 because they are pushing past me? (You won’t be able to reload.) What is my point of no return?

I think Trump meant this to be a final act of narcissistic rage against the United States for rejecting him. He's very, very lucky that no members of Congress were killed or physically harmed. If his followers weren't so brainwashed they'd see that the fact that he wasn't immediately locked up after participating in this atrocity (which he's much too dumb to have planned himself--I'm guessing it's Roger Stone's baby) is proof that there's no Deep State.

The media enabled all of this as did so-called moderate Dems, because there was a lack of empathy from all of them due to Trump's targets.

I've read a lot (probably too much) about this, R73, and I've come to something of an opposite conclusion. It seems to me that there weren't more injuries and why most of the people wandering around inside the Capitol look lost and confused is because that is exactly what they were. The video points out that there were trained military in their ranks who were looking to do some serious damage--or executions--but for the most part, the goal was just to create chaos. It really does seem like the majority thought they were going to encounter ANTIFA and have brawls in the streets.
Therein, the objective of Gosar (and Brooks, and maybe even Cruz) was just to stall the proceedings until the fighting in the streets and/or the bombs went off which then would give the White House an excuse to declare a State of Emergency. THAT was how they were planning to stop the certification. Breaking in was a secondary objective (which is why they had most of their weapons stockpiled in Virginia...for later...)
The big questions to me center around those two bombs: Why didn't they detonate? And, with all of the video and other information available, why haven't they found the individual(s) who planted them.
I think that is the going to be the key to this whole thing.

"and if you continue you're just talking to yourself as I've blocked you." ummm... you blocked me?
"one is stating a tally of arrests, the other opining why blame isn't being given."
so far, you can guarantee that the cops were derelict in arresting [which would have meant "STOPPING" the rioters... ] more than 300 criminals at the scene of the crime. there's enough footage to show the cops failed = neglected/derelict = to perform their duties. if they did start arresting, what would have happened? the rioters would, in turn, have arrested the cops?
also, something else really really bothers me. even in the NYTimes video coverage, the times does not name the officer who shot Ashli Babbit. That's a homicide and definitely justified. However, the Times' footage everyone is watching does not even bring attention to the identity of the public servant who commuted the justified homicide. Uh... Why?

It's pointless to assign any kind of reason to this since no one (even her family) *really* gives a shit about Babbit - she's just their little MAGA Joan of Arc - but I don't see how the identity of the officer is even relevant. The footage shows congress evacuating; the mob tries to break down the door to get to them. The cops on the outside clearly have given up containing the mob. The officer standing between the mob & congress pulls a gun & probably issues some sort of warning, but Babbit pops through the broken window anyway. It was clearly an effective deterrent because notice no one else said "I will pick up her fallen Trump flag & carry it forward!" - they backed the fuck off.
Doesn't this fall under that "Stand Your Ground" rule the MAGAs are so enamored with?

Given that the Q-Anoners and Trumpsters are certain that the person who shot Babbit was a member of Mike Pence's detail, they're almost surely just continuing the story of Pence being a member of the Deep State who kept Trump from his rightful place as president.
They also want to know his name so they can go after him.

"I was invited here by the President..." is one quote that particularly stands out from the documentary for me. We all watched Dump peddle the lies and then enable/encourage his supporters into frenzied action/insurrection so it's no surprise that many of them believed they were doing exactly what they were told to do with Presidential impunity. That in no way excuses what the insurrectionists did. Dump has miraculously escaped all blame just like he has his whole life. Dump and his political supporters have a lot to answer for but they will never be called to account. To believe otherwise is preposterous. I remain convinced that Pelosi and Pence are VERY fortunate they didn't find them otherwise they would have both be killed. Hung or pulled apart and beaten to death.
It was fascinating to see a complete timeline of the day which was delivered in an unbiased and factual manner. I had only seen disjointed snippets before this. Also fascinating to see how sparsely the Capitol was guarded and how requested police and army support was ignored (4 times requested by a senior commander). It's unacceptable that credible reports of planned violence delivered to various law agencies were all but ignored. They had to know what was going to happen.
It's crystal clear why police didn't shoot the insurrectionists - thousands would have ended up dead and the consequent nationwide civil unrest would have been unfathomable. This documentary was definitely worth a watch.

Not only was it interesting, it was practically beyond belief how sparsely guarded it was. Things that look like conspiracies are usually good old fashioned incompetence at work, but after seeing that video it's almost impossible to believe weak LE response & the failure to reinforce wasn't planned.
While the video was very well done, I noticed the video of the CP taking selfies with the protestors was not part of the video. I'm not saying they should smear the CP, but there were clearly officers that aided protestors.

Unfortunately, I don’t think NDP will have any of this because it would be too rude and graphic.

Question: if I’m not mistaken, wasn’t Michael Flynn’s brother Lt. Gen. Charles Flynn was a part of the Army’s response to Capitol riot.

Unless there is something specifically tying him back to his brother, getting Charles Flynn will be tough. Army senior brass already lied once he was on the call (he was), so it's not unreasonable to assume they'll continue to cover for him. Plus, there are active members of the military caught on video in the riots. The military has yet to court martial them. Maybe they will, but in the meantime, these guys keep their jobs & paychecks. I don't think you can attribute this lapse to the Biden administration so much as the military unwilling or unable to clean house.

[quote] Then, to prove his point about preparation, he revealed a new detail to me: that because of a tip he’d received about potential violence, he’d been wearing body armor at the very same Ellipse speech in which he encouraged rally attendees to “start taking down names and kicking ass.”
[quote] “I was warned on Monday that there might be risks associated with the next few days,” he said. “And as a consequence of those warnings, I did not go to my condo. Instead, I slept on the floor of my office. And when I gave my speech at the Ellipse, I was wearing body armor.
[quote] “That’s why I was wearing that nice little windbreaker,” he told me with a grin. “To cover up the body armor.”
[quote] He didn’t say who warned him, or what the “risk” was that he’d been warned about. There were probably a “half-dozen different motivations that affected people in varying degrees” to engage in insurrection. He named, for example, “financial losses suffered because of the government’s reaction to COVID-19,” “the belief that there was significant voter fraud and election theft activity,” or “a great love and respect for President Trump.”
[quote] But if he was so sure the mob would understand the peaceful intent of his words, why’d he need the Kevlar?

I want you to imagine AOC, Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib saying the things Mo Brooks was saying and tell me what the reaction would be from both sides. Then tell me white privilege doesn't exist.

Oh, most definitely; the Facebook Fraus practically froth when anger even when they express some benign opinion like "childcare should be affordable" (or some travesty like that). It's a combination of white privilege and people - even other women - who cannot abide a woman with some power & influence.

The Justice Department Is Struggling To Bring Capitol Riot Cases To Trial: Here's Why
[quote] "The evidence is significantly more complicated for them than they thought it was going to be, that's clear," Greg Hunter, a defense attorney who is working on a dozen Jan. 6 cases, told NPR. "Every one of those people was carrying a smartphone, every one of them, and they're all taking pictures and videos and all that evidence has actually slowed everything down."
[quote] Twenty-five people have pleaded guilty so far, which leaves a good 550 more cases left to resolve. To try to understand why all this is moving so slowly, NPR spent months speaking with dozens of Jan. 6 defense attorneys, prosecutors and defendants, both on and off the record.
[quote] What our reporting found was that the mountain of evidence is not the only reason why justice appears to be slow. Officials are also having trouble just finding prosecutors to assign to the cases, and some of those prosecutors said officials at headquarters are micromanaging the process, which is hobbling progress as well.
[quote] The Justice Department has created a kind of framework for prosecutions, dividing the Jan. 6 defendants into three categories. The first includes people such as Ianni who went inside the Capitol and allegedly walked around but aren't charged with property damage or assaulting police.
[quote] The second category of defendants includes those who broke into the Capitol, damaged property and attempted to stop the certification of the 2020 election. They are facing charges of civil disorder and assault and include people such as Tampa, Fla., crane operator Paul Allard Hodgkins, 38. He was seen carrying a red-and-white "Trump 2020" flag into the well of the Senate, while others stood over the vice president's abandoned chair.
[quote] And finally there is a category that prosecutors have yet to define precisely. These are the people investigators believe are connected to right-wing extremist groups such as the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers and Three Percenters. Officials are investigating whether or not there is hard evidence that shows the assault was planned in advance. Illuminating that would go a long way toward clarifying what actually took place that day.
[quote] Juliette Kayyem, a former assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security in the Obama administration, said the Justice Department has decided to play hardball with Jan. 6 defendants — hoping to prevent future attacks. It has opted for a legal strategy in the mold of shock and awe: Arrest everyone, charge everyone.
[quote] "You start with the FBI and the investigations that are going on, and you keep them coming," she said. "And every jurisdiction has these cases, and if I sound harsh, good, because this was an attempt to undermine a valid American election."

A loving crowd at the rally. Patriots! Fine people!
Then the antifa and cosplayers, crisis actors and commie pinko fags, showed up to make Republicans look bad. Paid for by Hugo Chávez and George Soros and Jane Fonda!

The last time one of them killed themselves, Trumpers on Facebook were accusing Pelosi of having him murdered in his home and covered up so it looked like a suicide. I asked one of the morons, "Why would Nancy do that?" No answer.
I feel terrible for Officer Hashida, his family and for the rest of the Capitol Police force. Realizing half of the people who you could have very easily died protecting on 6 January continue to sell you out for $$ and at the behest of a demented orange lard has to be depressing AF.

This is why I want to punch people who think we don't need CRT or try and pretend minorities aren't systematically targeted by law enforcement.
The Fraternal Order of Police and countless Police Unions were really quick to endorse Trump (a fucking CROOK), they were sure as hell quick with the Blue Lives Matter crap, but dead silence about this. I guess Blues Lives only matter when they're beating the shit out of black and brown people calling them out for precisely what they've proven to be: A racist, corrupt bunch of assholes.
