  1. We need phone records and secret service testimony. What did they communicate with the President and what was his reaction, or lack thereof? Was anyone from Congress involved?

    • @Dog Poo Fairy Q adherents suffer from a very real condition; they are hopelessly addicted to Q-drops.

    • @Dog Poo Fairy
      That’s why Trump should be called to the Senate to testify under oath, and also when a commission is convened.
      What missing in this is the big question of why minutes after the Capitol was attacked, Trump didn’t call in the National Guard, but sat back and watched it on TV.
      Will he claim that he didn’t know that the Capitol was under attack?
      McCarthy had called him to tell him and we know his response.

    • @Dog Poo Fairy What about Biden? What about Trump has you whataboutering about Biden?

    • @Kicky Doggy Doo Doo is attempting to defend the indefensible, because it’s addicted to Q-conspiracies and suffers from TDS.

      Pelosi needs to testify..

  2. 43T replublican senators allowed the leader of the rioter to go free.

    • he technically couldn’t have NOT go free since it was just a political trial. But your point still stands. Hopefully lady justice will catch him if not for this act, then for all the financial crimes he is surely guilty of.

      Well call them up and tell them they will not be returning mine was kicked to the curb using this and other methods. Those numbers are 202-224-3121 0r 202-225-3121 those will take you to the capitol switchboard operators. Tell them your state and which one of your worthless Republican Senators you wish to speak to. You more than likely will get a machine or an aide but I and many did get my now gone Senator. Tell them your thoughts and also to enjoy the 2,4 or 6 years they have left because they will not be returning. Do NOT threaten them. Then get 5 of your friends to call and then have them have 5 of their friends call etc. I used this and called every 2 weeks or so. Do not delay get on the phone and tell them you are going to show them a new way to the door on their way back to their state in disgrace. A certain number will not be making it back to their states they will be imprisoned by the time it all comes out.

  3. Cmon weeks before they did the same thing in Michigan and Oregon. SMH they knew.

    • Yep, but numerous times in Trumps presidency he tried to quiet intelligence about his most violent supporters. We need more investigations…

    • 💯That’s what I keep saying. The only media that really points that out are independently funded progressive sources & a few MSM hosts. It needs to be repeated every time someone says this wasn’t predictable. Regular people were worried about that day. MSM even warned of the risks… Because something like it was planned & practiced in the open, for at least a year!

    • @T D True. There were original versions of reports leaked, showing they were edited to make them more PC toward the far right. Agents mentioned having to balance each reference to white nationalists with a reference to eco terrorists, etc. He also defunded an Obama era task force that focused on monitoring extremist social media.

  4. Where there’s even a whiff of potential, you go w/the “dressing for a football game” approach. Wear more than you need. You can always take it off if you don’t need it, but if you need it and don’t have it, that’s a problem!

  5. The Capital guards also said they were ordered to turn in their riot gear that it was “old.” They never got a replacement and were severely compromised on 1/6

  6. Oi, #MSNBC it wasn’t lack of anything. Trump told them to go and then a buncha traitorous cops let em in.

    General Flynn’s brother would not release the guard he was part of the plot he should be taken into custody and court marshalled…

    • republicanism is fascism.

    • @sandias2005 ~ “If we are to have another contest in the near future of our national existence, I predict that the dividing line will not be Mason and Dixon’s but between patriotism and intelligence on the one side, and superstition, ambition and ignorance on the other.” ~ Ulysses S. Grant, 1875
      “When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” ~ Typically misattributed to Sinclair Lewis, the original source of this quote is unknown, but likely derived from labor activist Eugene V. Debs 1917 quote, “Every robber or oppressor in history has wrapped himself in a cloak of patriotism or religion, or both.”

      Before World War II, Charles Lindbergh typified American heroism with his daring flights, including the first solo transatlantic flight, and his celebration of new technology. He parlayed his fame and heroic stature into a leading role in the America First movement, which opposed America’s entrance into the war against Nazi Germany. In 1939, in an essay entitled “Aviation, Geography, and Race,” published in that most American of journals, Reader’s Digest, Lindbergh embraced something close to Nazism for America:

      “It is time to turn from our quarrels and to build our White ramparts again. This alliance with foreign races means nothing but death to us. It is our turn to guard our heritage from Mongol and Persian and Moor, before we become engulfed in a limitless foreign sea.”

      The America First movement was the public face of pro-fascist sentiment in the United States at that time. In the twenties and thirties, many Americans shared Lindbergh’s views against immigration, especially by non-Europeans. The Immigration Act of 1924 strictly limited immigration into the country, and it was specifically intended to restrict the immigration of both nonwhites and Jews.

      In this era, the likes of Toxic Trump and Marginalized Greene have become the face of the new “America First” fascist movement built up over the last four decades by the GOP, Reich-wing plutocrats, demagogues, and media. But, as with Lindbergh, the American people gradually come to recognize their dysfunctional poison and reject it. Most Americans understand, accept, and appreciate that the enduring strength of America is that we are a nation of immigrants and multiculturalism, a “melting pot” where the best ideas rise to the top, and superficial differences are meaningless in the face of our common humanity and purpose. Most Americans want competent leaders who speak truth, who strive to unite, who are not corrupt, who care about them. So, it should come as no surprise that President Biden is already receiving high marks from the public, while Toxic Trump never managed to rise above even a 50% approval rating. To conclude where begun, the following quotes are submitted for further reflection:

      “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” ~ George Santayana
      “History doesn’t repeat itself. But it does rhyme. ~ Mark Twain
      “That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.” ~ Aldous Huxley
      “If men could learn from history, what lessons it might teach us! But passion and party blind our eyes, and the light which experience gives us is a lantern on the stern which shines only on the waves behind.” ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    • @mike briganti he was in charge moron.

    • @wily wascal
      Weww stated yew wascawwy wascaw!

  8. We should all be thankful that sergeant of arms lost his job. Clearly he was incapable of protecting democracy and our Capitol building.

  9. Anyone with half a brain knew there was going to be trouble that day.

  10. Cops call say they need back up and your response is does the situation warrant back up ? … Who asks for back up and doesn’t need it ?

  11. WHEREisTHEbalance | February 24, 2021 at 9:08 AM | Reply

    but they mobilized over night for BLM, interesting. They werent worried about optics then. I wonder what changed?

    • @seth ask the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

    • @Dog Poo Fairy they would say the people released were protesting and did not participate in any riotous activities.

      Cops used techniques like kettling to make mass arrests of protesters. I know facts won’t get in the way of your bigoted talking points. The fact you don’t add any substance to your own statements in evidence as such.

    • @Dog Poo Fairy you are a traitor to this country. Put your real name up so we can get you on the no fly list.

    • @Dog Poo Fairy There was no dozens of people killed. You are a liar and an idolator. Jesus is going to get you.

      @Dog Poo Fairy I cant believe how mind F’d these people are… or like you said, all they watch is leftist propaganda media and never see the truth.

    When he said the intelligence didn’t warrant boots on the ground, he means HIS intelligence. Because there was clearly lots of intelligence out there that warranted it.

    • Even down here in NZ we were reading that there was going to be trouble, but apparently not in Washington? Yeah right.

    • I literally turned on the live coverage on the 6th because I was worried about the potential of what happened. Worst fears realized. 😞 There’s no question that there was evidence.

    • @Mindi Kruse Exactly. I was worried, too. I just naively thought Trump’s influence wouldn’t be able to interfere so much with security preparations, because so many agencies were involved. Sadly, it came down to him & his new DOD lackeys, refusing to send help & the longstanding bias of law enforcement that blinds them to the level of danger from the far right. Guaranteed, there were white officers shocked at being called “traitors” by Trump fans who spent five years saying “Back the Blue”.

    • @H K S they never really meant back the blue lives matter. The mean we are against the blacks.

  13. yep, the buck stops over there, to busy shining those stars and badges

  14. We all know this was allowed to happen.

    All of them reading from scripts like they dont have a single cell in their brain.

  16. The truth is hidden. I’m sure that intelligence sources knew. Hopefully, one day we’ll know the real truth.

  17. Unlike money, incompetence trickles down.

  19. Investigate the then sec of defense. This whole thing stinks of corruption and conspiracy.

    • I’d guess it has much more to do with why Barr resigned, he left after Trump asked for the riot but before it happened. This needs much further investigation into every member of Trumps DOJ.

  20. We know who is responsible for holding up the National Guard. At the higher level of intelligence agency they were told to wait. Anyone who was watching the riot were asking themselves “Where is the National guard? every minute.
