  1. Trump has been screaming ” Go Wild” on January 6 but still Law enforcement didn’t take it seriously. In fact cops were taking selfies with these Terrorists. This is Appalling.

  2. These were not riots.!!! This was an insurrection.!! There is no difference between Osama Bin Laden and Donald Trump at this point.

    • @frictionRx9
      You have more than one account gramps.
      No one agrees with you old fart.
      Not a Democrat, never have been.
      So continue to embarrass yourself and your lack of intellect will be made fun of everytime you post.
      Gotta go..
      Got a turbo to install and a business to run.
      REAL Republicans need their vehicles.

    • @Graham show me a video and I’d agree, but I watched for 6 hours yesterday and seen no violence..

    • @don juran there’s no violence in a bank robbery, kidnapping, shoplifting, etc… but they’re all still crimes. Are you really that stupid Trump Trash.??

      Don’t let any MAGA nuts on planes unless they are thoroughly searched.

    • @don juran Take off your MAGA glasses and you’ll start to see clearly!!

  3. 25th amendment!

      @Tech ti storming the capital to pull down the American flag is NOT “preventing trampling of civil liberties”, it’s terroism & SHOULD be called out as such!

    • You really want even worse rioting?

      @Cory Allen Who would care about a hornet’s nest when the country is at stake. They should take the gloves off and fight to destroy fascism.

      @Susan Grimm If you follow your logic about how to handle Trump, you’re basically making a case on how dangerous he is to America. It never turns out well for anyone assumed to be a tyrant and refuses to go away. He should have his day in court for his own benefit because it could be much worse for him and his cult.

  4. America was far from great yesterday. Trump must pay a severe price.

    • Shakuntla Singh | January 7, 2021 at 1:56 PM | Reply

      This incident from trump must not be seen without any severe consequence as it promotes others to act in the manner that is drown grading the constitution along with the people who believe in democracy and take again to unruly manner! Lock trump, Julianne and don jr the biggest fools of this country!!

    • Trump needs to pay the ultimate price. His life.

    • pretty much 4+ years that america hasn’t been great…

    • And his enablers

      @Eric Lipten For years, I couldn’t understand regicide during the French Revolution, Russian Revolution, and the English Civil War, but it’s usually from tyrants who pose an ongoing threat, won’t go away, and refuse to respect the will of the people. He should be removed, tried, and sentenced to the maximum extent under the law.

  5. Ted Cruz and criminal associates should be kicked out of Washington with His Greatness

    Biden should reinstate Chirs Kerbs.

  7. Invoke the 25th, impeach & arrest him.

    Clear thinker, articulate, insightful, competent…get Chris Krebs back on the payroll and let him serve our nation now at a time his talents are sorely needed,

    • @zenoist2 why would they, because of Trump’s whining because he can’t believe and won’t accept he lost. Because the man who so easily degrades others and calls them losers is a loser himself? Because there are people like you who are so ignorant and weak minded that when he opens his mouth they think they’re hearing from some kind of prophet? Get real. The man is the joke, unfit for office and the majority of Americans recognized this and made him a one term President. Next is holding him accountable and all those complicit, not pandering to your alternative reality.

      @Tech ti Accidently voted on your comment when trying to hit the ‘Read More’ link. Your equating BLM protests with what happened yesterday (instead of just commenting on one or the other) is a problem. Secondly, as Carl Sagan and many others repeatedly said: “Real patriots ask questions”. They don’t accept arguments from people they support without checking. They don’t believe an election was stolen because they are told so. They demand evidence first. Evidence is not rumor, hearsay, gossip, social media posts, politically aligned media, or anyone who directly benefits from you believing what they claim without producing the evidence. Patriots don’t fall for tactics as obvious and dishonest as Trump’s.

    • @zenoist2 stop the lies and foolery please it’s getting old… if the elections are rigged then the gop senators and house reps that got reelected should be audited to right? stop it

    • @Tech ti they are terrorist… they stormed a building of elected officials and looted it and destroyed elements of it if you find nothing wrong with that you will never be reached

      Krebs should be press secretary for the Biden admin.

    Use cell phone technology to identify every Domestic Terrorist who attacked the Capitol yesterday. Ping, ping, ping…

    25 th ammendment NOW. Every minute you wait is dangerous! Talk later.

    • I believe there will Not be a Republican Party left if they keep Trump in Power because he has now become a maniac & lunatic & will try to start a War with another country or let Russia come Right into the USA through his updated goons in the Defense Department, etc. in the next 13 days to stay in Power past January. He is a pathological liar & con artist like his press secretary, etc. Get rid of the bum now.

      The 25th amendment only states what should happen if a president is removed, resigns or dies. It does not provide a path to removal.

      The 25th Amendment all depends on Pence, and I just don’t see him doing it

      Patricia Schwartz couldn’t have said it better. Trump has to be removed now! He is a traitor to his position and the USA.

  11. Now Chris you know Why he fired you, you spoiled his attempt’s to circumvent the election result’s.

    • @Jason Jensen Chris Krebs actually did create the CISA website, which Trump promoted himself! Did you forget it was Trump that appointed him? Just like all the trump appointed judges who dimissed Trump’s lawsuits. Quit being a sheep jason. Trump doesn’t care about Americans

    • Ahmad Abdullah | January 7, 2021 at 4:52 PM | Reply

      @Jason Jensen Of course in your little world everything is upside down! I guess it isn’t a stretch to say you enjoyed what happened at the Capitol yesterday too!

    • @Ahmad Abdullah I didn’t mind it what happened at the capital, much like you enjoyed antifa burning and looting.

    • Catherine Sorensen | January 7, 2021 at 10:26 PM | Reply

      @Jason Jensen are you stupid he made sure it was a fair and secure election and if you don’t believe that you’re probably one of the ones that went to the capital and might be charged

    • @Catherine Sorensen haha. Is that the devil speaking in you? Are you the one that cheated in the election to get the CCP of Biden elected?

  12. Ted Cruz is the most pathetic round-a-clock lackey of them all. He must be held accountable!

    The world is watching us. France and Germany have made there positions clear. Democracy is at stake.

    • Condolences to decent Americans from NZ.
      We can feel the shame.

      @R Wags Thanks. The Kiwis have always been good friends of America. Good job on managing Covid-19!

    • It is true, I thought my country the UK was mental but American MAGAs have the crown. They know full well Trump lost the election but they dont like democracy so they decided to abandon it and take matters into their own hands, just like the Confederacy 150 years before.

  14. The police were told to stand down!! National guard wasn’t sent in until hours after?? This is what people in leadership wanted to happen!!!

    • @Elke I honestly don’t no what your referring to. Please clarify.

    • The Capitol police and D.C. National Guard are under the direct control of the President and Vice President.

    • @Johnny Harry, I was responding to Mark Ford’s original comment.

    • @Mr Rodgers Political Playtime No you go find an all communist 1 to live in. This is a Democratic Republic. I have no problem with people of color, I do have a problem with Marxist regardless of their color. BLM is Marxist, as well as a larger % of the dem party.

    • @El Ram Honestly we would need another venue to discuss this to make any progress, like a Skype call or something like that. If you want to do that let me know: Johnny – a patriotic American.

    “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.”

  16. If there’s any justice, Mr. Krebs will be hired back to his former position.

  17. I have never seen a patriot throw the flag on the ground and replace it with a Trump flag. I still haven’t, but I did watch a Trumpist do it yesterday.

      Alvarado, You only proved how stupid you are because in the same speech you are referring to Trump specifically said he was not talking about white supremacists! Its pathetic and amazing that you are so dumb that you didn’t understand that! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    This man should be reinstated to CISA immediately when Biden comes to office.
