    1. Lol i replied with a link to NPR story from the former Capitol police chief. and youtube deleted it.. no wonder liberals are so uneducated, you are being spoonfed your truths.

    2. They wont let me post a link so Ill post the article.
      “The former chief of U.S. Capitol Police says security officials at the House and Senate rebuffed his early requests to call in the National Guard ahead of a demonstration in support of President Trump that turned into a deadly attack on Congress.
      Former chief Steven Sund — who resigned his post last week after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for him to step down — made the assertions in an interview with The Washington Post published Sunday.
      Sund contradicts claims made by officials after Wednesday’s assault on Capitol Hill. Sund’s superiors said previously that the National Guard and other additional security support could have been provided, but no one at the Capitol requested it.
      Sund told the Post that House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving was concerned with the “optics” of declaring an emergency ahead of the protests and rejected a National Guard presence. He says Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Michael Stenger recommended that he informally request the Guard to be ready in case it was needed to maintain security.
      Like Sund, Irving and Stenger have also since resigned their posts”

    “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”
    –Voltaire

    On January 6, the world witnessed the truth in Voltaire’s words on Capitol Hill.

    1. It was an FBI false flag.
      The absurdity is calling unarmed patriots being shot at and inflitrated by blm (john Sullivan) an insurection.

    1. Yes! Good point! Sure hope some of those delusional traitorous Congressional officials, take a hike!

  2. Republican politicians are about to get very desperate.
    Even the ones who weren’t involved have been giving aid and comfort to enemies of the Constitution, with a couple exceptions.

    1. Corrupt beyond the pale, and fascist, but “that side” doesn’t care about that, they are okay with it.

    1. @kingintyellow excellent summary… unfortunately Bruce cannot comprehend logical reasoning. Orange kool-aid has fried the motherboard!

    2. @kingintyellow you nailed it! Absolutely spot on! These conspiracy loving freaks in the republican party are shaking in their boots right about now. I’m guessing taylor Greene,boebert,Jim Jordan,MC carthy all involved.

    3. @Bruce Smith weird cause I remember the republicans not wanting an investigation.

      So it was antifa, BLM, the fbi, but also like a tourist event and no investigations must be done according to the republicans .. you don’t have a one brain cell do you

  3. everyone who was part of this must be expelled and tried for treason also we need to lower threshold on vote to expel members of congress from 2/3 to 1/3

  4. Good! It should be a terror to the ones if we actually find any seditious members of congress.

  5. I’m still sayin an 8 man Squad with Reloads & Ar platforms at the stone arch.
    Weapons Release Authorization for other armed officers at the Windows.
    No Problem’s at all.
    It was a Complete Tactical Failure to hold a Fortified Entrance.
    The ONLY officer that did his job, shot that woman. And he’s catching Grief About it.
    You GOTTA Draw A Line.
    They shoulda never got further than the top 3 steps.
    OR the Pressure Washers Would Have Been Working OverTime the next morning.
    The National Guard Details,,,
    that were supposed to be on standby. That should have been a Army Guard Command Call for Immediate Mobilization.
    Needed water cannons.
    In 30 degree weather, Push them all into the Reflecting Pool,,, till their body temp drops significantly.
    Put Zem In Da Kooler!!

    This Was Organized HomeGrown Terrorists with Inside Instructions & Co-Operation.
    Command Failure from the Get Go.
    If they had Not Been White AngloSaxon men,,,
    Any Other Shade of Brown to Black, Asian, Middle-astern. Any color but White.
    It Would Have Been A BloodBath.

  6. trump incited an armed insurrection on january 6 2021 to overthrow a fair democratic election

  7. That’s what’s up been waiting for that to happen inside forces are going to include many of the extreme crazies in our Congress. I’m pretty sure that’s what has Lindsey spooked, guess what man they in fact do want to open that can of worms. Might be a good time to get your story straight.

  8. the blind ignorance of republicons who refuse to get vaccinated, many of whom will die from Covid-19 or the Delta Variant might just equal or even surpass the number of people denied their right to vote. THIS COULD BE POETIC JUSTICE IN THE MAKING!!! LET THEM DIE

    1. No. We can fight them by becoming more like them. Besides, their ignorance & selfishness doesn’t only hurt them. It also endangers people who are immune compromised or too young to be vaccinated. Children under 12 can’t be vaccinated for Covid. Among children, infants are the most at risk for severe Covid & there likely will never be a Covid vaccine available for their age group.

  9. I’m sick and tired of seeing “Content May Be Disturbing” warnings. The only thing that was disturbing was seeing the police allowing that mob to leave the Capitol and go home.

    1. The protesters walked away because it was not an insurrection.
      The FBI operatives and the anti Trump agitators stuck around longer disappointed they couldn’t stir up more violence.

  10. ” Conspiring, planning, plotting ” They are coming for you next Republican Senators. Smash those phones, burn those emails lols.

  11. This was organized in Dec. as the reality of the failures in the courts sunk in. Who funded the event? Did all the rioters pay their own way? Who invited all the militia-style groups? There is money-back there … whose? Who neutered the Capitol Police with a no extreme force order? What was the secretary of defense doing in those 4.5 hrs before the guard showed up?
