    1. Yeah. We know. It’s why 45 lost & Dems got the Senate back. It’s why many states that have been “red” for decades, elected Democratic governors & legislators in 2018. It’s why we’ve had the biggest protests in US history, which inspired protests for women’s & racial minorities’ rights, worldwide. With that, came civil unrest, increased far right domestic terror & hate crimes. We have dramatically shifted left on many social issues. As usual, it triggered a backlash from our shrinking, but extreme, right- wing minority. It’s not just the US, though. Most Western democracies are dealing with some degree of increased nationalist or autocratic movements.

    2. @H K S Yep, that’s the problem with the US “government”. It’s always republican vs democrat, red vs blue, extreme right vs radical left, us vs them. It’s never one for all and all for one. How about one party, the Peoples Republic of America? Nah, that will never work.

    3. @Sal Spencer The Democrats benefitted from this. Obviously. They are going to use it to shred what’s left of our Constitutional rights. They have ALWAYS supported political violence in the capital before. Hmmmmm.

    1. @Caleb Fowler The same one killed a deputy in Santa Cruz county. He injured others with an IED. He was armed, but the second guy he tried to carjack, tackled him as he handed over his keys. Neighbors helped hold him, until cops arrived. The guy wouldn’t let the press release his name, afterward, but I hope he got some sort of recognition from law enforcement.

    2. @Richie Tattersall I recently found out, an ally categorizing groups that way, to enables them to share intel with some of our agencies that aren’t supposed to surveil US citizens. Then, those agencies can pass it to the FBI. I think the requirements in Canada are that it has to involve finances, which is how many US white supremacist groups have been taken down by the FBI. Interstate organizing makes it the FBI’s jurisdiction & financial dealings, bring federal anti-organized crime laws into play.

    3. @m jones “The FBI does not officially designate domestic terrorist organizations, but they have openly delineated domestic terrorist “threats.” They identified domestic terrorism threats to include criminal activity by
      certain groups, such as the Proud Boys, or by individuals that adhere to a certain ideology, such as antifa.”

    4. @Ellie James I think Homeland Security designates who is a domestic terrorist org.. The Patriot Act has laws about dealing with these people. Thanks for the info!

    2. @Daniel Leblanc The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.

  1. Trump and enablers set the platforms for all racist groups, individuals, whom are racist corporations, to just treat people any kind of way. The party of Trump has to resign, and wait for trump and his next move. American people need leadership and they are in the way.

    1. @Swamp Yankee You right wing dumbasses do all the damage and yet are always ready to point your crooked finger at everyone else when you get caught. You’re all a bunch of stupid morons who thrive on hate and racist ideology. You never own up to your own faults and failures and use projection as your only way to defend the indefensible. You people are sick! Get some help!

    2. @Swamp Yankee : RRRIIGHT…
      Like usual.. us DEMOCRATS have too CLEAN Republicans MESS up, AND Do The job at hand. That’s okay…
      We’ll Do it, Cuz WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY, UNLIKE… REPUBLICAN commie lovin Racist.

    3. @Marie-Flo Reddy : humm
      And your part of the Republican commie lovin RACIST Group .
      Where’s YOUR ALL MIGHTY LEADER ?
      Why didn’t he come out and help on the attack? He was watching it from his window? Like the COWARD HE and ALL of you are. Guess what?? Keep crying over… NO MORE.. ! Time for REAL POLITICS. You Elephants can stay in your Circus tents and CRY for the next (8) years, And more. While us DEMOCRATS FIX the REPUBLICANS MESS (like usual) AND Take CARE of the Business of POLITICS.

  2. Ron The QAnon keeps on spreading conspiracy theories. People in Wisconsin should be ashamed of themselves for electing people like Ron The QAnon as their senator.

    1. @The DAWG “Oregon Republican Party falsely calls U.S. Capitol riot a ‘false flag’ meant to ‘discredit President Trump’”
      Shows how crazy conspiracies have taken hold of the Republican party…

    2. @The DAWG “Why y’all scared of Trump?” Because Trump is a corrupt lying traitor who tried to overthrow our democracy and get himself installed as unelected dictator. His cultists hate America and spit on the constitution. All decent patriotic Americans are concerned about Trump, and are determined that he will never get power again.

    1. @ARLENE WUK 
      Who is sitting in the white house? Answer: Biden.
      Apparently, you don’t know what it is and you are the one that is delusional and demented since you can’t accept Biden won the election and Trump lost. Fact.

    2. @Dev Carter Trump won by a LANDSLIDE

      The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.
      Joseph Stalin
      He stole the election, that’s why we call him “Joseph Stealin”

    3. @Dev Carter You would not know a fact, if it smacked you in the face Try the Epoch Times and NTD — then come back when you know something

  3. Have a True Capitol Police Force” stationed at the capitol…with command and control…to protect the capitol !!! Not one dependent on D.C. police…except for back-up !!! And these Senators…that feed the lies…not only cancel them…”erase them ” from the House !!!

  4. They need to take steps to stop these lies they are corrupt and this is getting ridiculous where is are f’n government

    1. Yes. Where is the f—ing government? Impotent states people sitting with right wing terrorists as if they just ordered high tea.

    2. Seriously, they’re going crazier by the minute. It’s bizarro world, and it seems like with each passing week, they are growing more and more delusional/dishonest. This is so far gone, I wonder about the future.

    3. @Lizanne Whitlow LOL! I wrote directly to Johnson and told him he makes himself look stupid spewing conspiracies…

    1. So you don’t really want an investigation. Just the appearance of one that can be used against political opponents whether they had anything to do with the violence or not. It’s what you’ll get. Another clown show that only dumbasses like yourself will buy.

    1. @High Mellow A mellon head – sweet, did you wash your dirty little hands and scream at sky
      joe your man
      Facts confuse you Lack skills joe needs help with the dogs

    2. @High Mellow Insanity Wrap needs to know: If it’s malpractice to treat the symptom instead of the disease, what’s it called when you mistreat something that isn’t even a symptom?
      Answer: Democratic governance in action.

    3. @High Mellow
      REVEALED: The Democrats’ ‘expert’ in Senate hearing on ‘misinformation’ is a prolific conspiracy theorist

  5. This is why we must continue to vote! We out number the crazies. And we must ensure they never run the country ever again

  6. Vote Johnson out of office he’s part of the insurection and the big lie and the other 139 insurection traitors vote them out blood on their hands

    1. Prosecute them. Lying cannot be allowed to go unpunished. It is the main Republican tool right now, and they will keep using it until they face consequences for it.

  7. ‘Provoked them’ by not allowing them to walk straight in and hang who they want to hang? Is that what he meant?

  8. The comments are actually funny. “It’s China and the Russians fault.” Whatever people. I guess the Chinese and Russians started Qanon too huh? Morons.
