America, the Prison State

Now that the impeachment scam has been completed, the narrative-creators will start letting the truth about what really happened in the Capitol riot on January 6 to start dribbling out. Thus it is that today we see the narrative creators at the Department of Justice who rashly promoted a false claim that those who entered the Capitol that day were planning to “capture and assassinate” various lawmakers, including Mike Pence and San Fran Nan Pelosi suddenly walking that claim back.

From a story at Townhall.com:

Justice Department attorneys have walked back the claim that Capitol rioters planned to “capture and assassinate” lawmakers. The move follows acting US attorney Michael Sherwin’s comments earlier in the day that “no direct evidence” establishes the presence of so-called “kill capture teams” during last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Prosecutors in the case of Jacob Anthony Chansley, the man captured in viral images wearing a horned fur headdress and carrying a spear, have formally requested the court strike a line from a recent filing where prosecutors assert that “strong evidence” exists showing “the intent of the Capitol rioters was to capture and assassinate elected officials in the United States Government,” CNN reported. Prosecutors have described Chansley as a regular drug user who suffers from mental illness.

At a press conference on Friday, acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin said, “We don’t have any direct evidence of kill capture teams.”

[End]

Oh. You don’t say.

The DOJ’s original false claim, of course, was used by the Democrats  and supporting Republicans in congress to dummy up a justification for an actual impeachment vote this week, a vote that was held without any due process or the holding of a single hearing prior to that vote. Now that the deal is one, oh hey, they were just kiddin’.

Despicable.

Hey, no one could have seen this one coming! – Oh, wait, we saw it coming right here at DBDailyUpdate just yesterday, didn’t we?

That’s when I detailed the arrest of one John E. Sullivan, a professional BLM/Antifa rioter/agitator who helped organize and execute the Capitol riot, and who was arrested on Thursday in Provo, Utah. In yesterday’s report, I predicted that Sullivan would almost certainly be released very quickly. Later in the day on Friday, he was released without having to even post bail.

I swear I do not make this stuff up. From a report in the Salt Lake City Tribune:

Judge Daphne Oberg denied a prosecutor’s request to keep Utah activist John Sullivan in jail, but she agreed to release him only under conditions that include electronic monitoring and a mental health evaluation.
Sullivan was in virtual court Friday afternoon, one day after being booked at the Tooele County Jail on a warrant for allegedly participating in the rioting at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Sullivan was charged in federal court in the District of Columbia with civil disorder, being in a restricted area and disorderly conduct.
He previously told The Salt Lake Tribune that he attended the riot to document what was happening, but a government affidavit alleges he did more than just film. The affidavit says Sullivan yelled things such as “We accomplished this sh–. We did this together,” and, “We are all a part of this history. … Let’s burn this s— down.” He also broke a window and claimed to have a knife, according to the affidavit.
Sullivan claimed in a YouTube video that he was just trying to fit in at the riot for his own safety.
[End]

Oh, yeah, sure, uh-huh, you betcha: This professional rioter scumbag was “just trying to fit in.”

Holy crap.

Meanwhile, here is what Washington, DC, the national capital city of the formerly free nation of the United States of America, looks like today:

This is what a police state looks like, folks, and if the Democans and Republicrats in the DC UniParty have their way, it is what all of the country will look like soon. They are using the false narrative created in the wake of the Capitol riot to advance their real agenda right before our very eyes, supported by their agents in the corrupt news media and the Big Tech monopolies.

There are 26,000 National Guard troops in DC right now, advancing the false narrative that congress and the incoming Biden/Harris Harris/Biden Administration must be protected from violent Trump supporters. They have closed all of the bridges coming into the city and established checkpoints on all the main roads and arteries as well. In order to get into the City of Washington DC today, you must be able to present the proper papers to the authorities.

Sound familiar?

Friday News Roundup: Trump Declassification Comes Far Too Late To Matter

Classic DC Swamp Kabuki theater. – The media is now reporting that Washington DC is home to no fewer than 26,000 activated National Guard Troops. Here are photos of some of them being forced to sleep on the floor in various congressional office buildings right now:

Meanwhile, the streets of DC are filled with…no one. No protesters. No demonstrators. Certainly no rioters.

So, why is the National Guard there? Well, justifying an impeachment scam and the installation of a fraudulent President requires a great deal of theater. That theater includes “warnings” from the dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence that is the FBI about its supposed expectation of “violent riots” being planned by “Trump supporters” for January 17, and running all the way through Inauguration Day.

Of course, the truth is that there will be violent riots leading up to and on Inauguration Day, and have been at every inauguration since 2000. But they’ve never in the past been organized by conservatives and/or Republicans: They have always been organized and carried out by anarchists and leftists like those who now run BLM and Antifa.

As I discuss in depth elsewhere this morning, this FBI narrative is obviously being set up to discourage any protests by actual Trump supporters and to pre-set the blame for the riots that the left will inevitably execute on those Trump supporters.

Yes, it’s depraved and despicable and demented and frankly evil, but hey, this is the FBI and DC Swamp we’re talking about here. You expected something else?

It’s ok to reopen now that a Democrat sock puppet is about to be installed in the presidency. – Speaking of depraved Democrats, communist Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot followed the lead of thug New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday, announcing new plans to suddenly allow the reopening of bars and restaurants in her city. Her hilarious justification for this move is that the bars and restaurants need to reopen now because too many of her beaten-down citizens are holding “large” gatherings of more than 4 people in their homes!

I swear I do not make this stuff up. From a story at the Chicago Tribune:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Thursday she wants the city’s bars and restaurants to reopen for indoor service “as soon as possible” and plans to discuss the issue with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, despite the fact that the city hasn’t met the state’s requirements for lifting the restrictions.

“I am very, very focused on getting our restaurants reopened. If we look at the various criteria that the state has set, we are meeting most if not all of those. So that’s a conversation that I will have with the governor,” Lightfoot said at a news conference about the city’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution sites. “But I want to get our restaurants and our bars reopened as quickly as possible.”

In fact, the city has not yet reached the metrics set by Pritzker’s administration.

On Thursday, Chicago’s test positivity stood at 10%, according to city statistics. Under the current pandemic rules, the city would have to have a positivity rate of 6.5% or less for three straight days in order for restaurants and bars to reopen.

Lightfoot also said people are holding underground parties that spread COVID-19 and that reopening bars and restaurants to indoor service could help.

“Let’s bring it out of the shadows, let’s allow them to have some recreation in restaurants, in bars, where we can actually work with responsible owners and managers to regulate and protect people from COVID-19, so I feel very strongly that we are very close to a point where we should be talking about opening our bars and restaurants,” Lightfoot said.

[End]

The obvious real reason why these Democrat thugs like Lightfoot and Cuomo are suddenly talking about reopening the economies they have destroyed is because none of the closings ever had the slightest thing to do with data or science, as they falsely claimed. Those failed tactics had everything to do with politics and destroying millions of people’s lives and livelihoods in a craven effort to impact the November 3 elections.

These are the very worst people on the face of the earth, and dimwitted Democrat voters keep electing them. Surreal.

Today’s Short Term Memory Reminder… – Hey, remember when hundreds of leftist agitators stormed the Capitol Building during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and posed for photos like this one?:

Image

I do, and now you do, too.

Remember all the uproar and condemnation of this insurrection from the UniParty Democans and Republicrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media when this happened? Yeah, neither do I.

This concludes your Short Term Memory Update for today.

Democrats, promoting “Unity” through slander and lies. – Here is the despicable Don Lemon and steroid freak Fredo Cuomo helping China Joe Potato Head Biden and his sock puppet campaign for “unity” among the American people:

You seriously could never make these people up if they didn’t already exist.

Oh, you don’t saaaaayyyyyy… – Check out this report from CBS News:

Now, you’ll have to excuse Ms. Herridge and the talking head in the video, since CBS has steadfastly refused to report the truth about the BLM/Antifa riots that have been destroying Democrat-run cities since last May, but the use of “military-style tactics” like “hand signals to communicate” has been the stock in trade of the professional BLM/Antifa rioters since the day those two armed Democrat paramilitary support groups were created.

So yes, the corrupt federal “investigators” are no doubt seeing these things in those videos, which is just further proof that BLM/Antifa agitators played a major planning and execution role in that riot.

This is neither hard nor complicated, folks, if you just pay a little attention.

A little late for this, Mr. President. – Not sure what he’s trying to accomplish at this very late date, but President Donald Trump is finally, at long last going to declassify a bunch of Spygate/Obamagate-related documents today.

From a report at JustTheNews.com:

Delivering in his final days on one of his last unfulfilled promises, President Trump is declassifying a massive trove of FBI documents showing the Russia collusion story was leaked in the final weeks of the 2016 election in an effort to counteract Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

The memos to be released as early as Friday include FBI interviews and human source evaluation reports for two of the main informants in the Russia case, former MI6 agent Christopher Steele and academic Stefan Halper.

The president authorized the release of a foot-high stack of internal FBI and DOJ documents that detail significant flaws in the investigation and provide a detailed timeline of when the FBI first realized the Steele dossier was problematic, multiple government officials told Just the News.

Among the bombshell revelations is an admission by Steele that he violated his confidential human source agreement with the FBI and leaked information from his dossier to the news media in the final weeks of the election because he wanted to counteract new revelations in the Hillary Clinton email scandal that were hurting her election efforts. The former foreign intelligence officer made the confession in a fall 2017 interview with agents.

[End]

Don’t get me wrong: I’m all for getting all of these documents and thousands more that remain classified out into the public domain, but this is an action that should have been taken two years ago, when it would have made a difference. Doing it now is like a football team opening up the playbook while trailing by 35 points with 2 minutes remaining in the game. You might get one last touchdown out of it, but the ultimate outcome is a fait accompli.

Look for the corrupt news media to studiously ignore all of this. Because that is what our corrupt news media does.

That is all.

More Proof of BLM/Antifa Capitol Riot Involvement Emerges [UPDATED]

It was a classic false flag operation. – In case you still labor under the illusion that BLM/Antifa agitators did not help cause the Capitol riot on January 6, the federal government disagrees. Radical BLM/Antifa professional agitator John E. Sullivan was arrested yesterday for his role in the rioting:

From the story at Fox 13 in Salt Lake City:

OOELE COUNTY, Utah — Utah activist John Sullivan was taken into custody in Provo Thursday, over a week after he shared video of himself inside the U.S. Capitol as protesters breached security.

Sullivan, 26, was charged in federal court with:

  • One count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority
  • One count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds
  • One count of interfering with law enforcement engaged in the lawful performance of their official duties incident to and during the commission of civil disorder

The arrest document states Sullivan can be seen outside the Capitol building using a microphone as he told the crowd “we about to burn this s___ down,” “we got to rip Trump out of office… f_______ pull him out of that shit… we ain’t waiting until the next election… we about to go get that m__________.”

While in the Capitol, Sullivan was wearing a ballistics vest and gas mask.

In a video posted to social media last week, Sullivan said he ran into the Capitol building with the others to document what was transpiring.

“I was there to record,” said Sullivan in a video posted to Periscope Friday. “I was there to let people see that situation in the best possible way.”

Sullivan is the founder of Insurgence USA, an activist group formed after the killing of George Floyd in the summer of 2020. He says he voluntarily interviewed with the FBI in Washington, DC on Jan. 7.

[End]

Maria Bartiromo is sharing video on Fox Business this morning of Sullivan and his fellow BLM/Antifa rioters running through the Capitol Building yelling about want to “burn this sh*t down!” Sullivan is also one of the people who took video of the shooting of 14-year Air Force veteran Ashlii Babbitt during the riot.

UPDATE: Oh, yeah, I forgot to include this in the first draft of this piece, but, after he helped execute the Capitol Riot, Sullivan was invited to appear with Anderson Cooper on CNN that same night:

The story doesn’t doesn’t recount it, but Sullivan was one of the organizers of the riot in Provo, Utah in which two innocent car drivers who just happened to be caught in its midst were shot. He was briefly arrested, released by a Marxist judge, and has been running around free ever since. Judging from the pissant charges he is facing in this case and the fact that Washington, DC is controlled by radical Marxist Democrats, he will likely be running around free again today.

As I have said all along to the dismay of many readers, there is no question that thousands of actual Trump supporters did indeed participate in the forced breaching of the outer security perimeter at the Capitol on January 6. There is also no question that dozens, if not hundreds of actual Trump supporters, including the late Ms. Babbitt, did indeed participate in the invasion of the Capitol building itself.

But, as I have also pointed out from Day 1, there is also no question that this riot was a classic false flag operation, led at least in part by professional BLM/Antifa agitators like Sullivan.

And the troubling news is that there is another obvious false flag setup brewing on Sunday. The FBI and its plants in the fake news media have been pushing the narrative all week that the raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence law enforcement agency expects “violent riots” to take place on January 17. The claim is that the same “Trump supporters” who organized the Capitol riot on January 6 are now organizing these “violent riots” to take place in all 50 state Capitols that day.

Here’s an excerpt from a typical fake media story at MSN.com:

The FBI is expecting armed protests at state capitols across the country, according to tweets from ABC News correspondent Aaron Katersky.

On Monday, Katersky tweeted that ABC had received a bulletin from the FBI stating that the protests are being planned and are expected to begin January 16 and continue through at least January 20 – Inauguration Day.

He also tweeted “The FBI has ‘received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January. They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment a huge uprising will occur,’ according to a bulletin obtained by @ABC”

The news comes less than a week after violence erupted in the nation’s capital on Wednesday as congress was set to count the Electoral College votes, confirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory over President Donald Trump.

[End]

This is an obvious setup, designed to accomplish two goals: 1)To discourage any and all supporters of President Trump from exercising their right to assemble and peacefully express their beliefs, and 2) to set up a narrative that will lay the blame at their feet for any violence professional BLM/Antifa rioters like Sullivan wish to foment on Sunday.

Because deception is the FBI’s stock in trade, its core competency as an organization, and has been for many decades now.

If you are planning to participate in a peaceful protest against this blatantly stolen election on Sunday, keep your head on a swivel and be ready to loudly identify and shun the professional agitators in your midst, because they will certainly be there with you.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: What Did Pelosi and McConnell Know and When Did They Know It?

Let’s start with a little DC Swamp humor found on Twitter yesterday:

Image may contain: 2 people, closeup, text that says 'D 1 5 MANURE WOMANURE'

It’s just perfect, really.

Coverage of the DC Swamp UniParty’s second sham impeachment of President Donald Trump can be found here and here.

The Little Menace to Society pushes the goal posts even further down the field. – If you’re planning any actual vacation trips or attending events at the local theater anytime in 2021, you might want to cool your heels on that action.

The little menace to American society Anthony Fauci is already pushing the next virus:

Well, of course. The “new strain” of the virus supposedly imported from England hasn’t taken hold of the public’s imagination, so now Fauci switches to the tactic of claiming America has somehow developed a completely unique strain of its own.

Just accept it: The Swamp wants to keep you cowering in your homes and wearing masks forever. This madness will not end until it is ended by force. And one of the myriad disastrous consequences of the fraudulent election we’ve just experienced is that the people who want to keep you in that sorry state will soon be in control of the armed forces of the United States.

It’s cleanup time at Twitter, everyone! – A week after his company coordinated in monopolistic fashion with other Big Tech giants to de-platform President Donald Trump and destroy Parler, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was out on the hustings trying to do some half-assed cleanup because Twitter’s stock is tanking.

From a story at DailyWire:

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey acknowledged in a statement on Wednesday evening that his company’s decision to ban President Donald Trump from the platform set a “dangerous” precedent and said that it was ultimately a “failure” by the company to “promote healthy conversation.”

Dorsey’s remarks come after the company has taken a hit in its value since banning the president last week, following a riot that broke out at the U.S. Capitol.

“I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter,” Dorsey wrote. “Was this correct? I believe this was the right decision for Twitter. We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all.”

“That said, having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications. While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I feel a ban is a failure of ours ultimately to promote healthy conversation. And a time for us to reflect on our operations and the environment around us,” he continued. “Having to take these actions fragment the public conversation. They divide us. They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning. And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation.”

Dorsey claimed that the company did not coordinate with other tech companies with its decision to ban the president and that other companies either made their own choices or “were emboldened by the actions of others.”

[End]

All of that is, of course, an outright lie, especially the part about not coordinating with the other Big Tech firms. This is just the CEO of a major corporation reading the talking points handed to him by his enormous staff of talking points monkeys in an effort to prevent the company from continuing to bleed billions of dollars in market value every day.

Sadly, he’ll probably succeed in that effort.

I’d rather have a prostate exam than watch this:

Futile Gesture of the Week Award goes to…

Talk about a waste of time and energy – that effort has about as much chance of succeeding as this year’s Houston Rockets.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder – Just a reminder that, on January 5, the day before the riot took place at the U.S. Capitol when the small contingent of Capitol Police guarding the building were overwhelmed by a crowd of thousands, Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser did this:

Oh.

So, as you continue to hear and see the corrupt news media claim that President Trump delayed calling out the National Guard to help secure the Capitol, know that the communist Democrat Mayor of the City had specifically and publicly discouraged making any such move just 24 hours earlier.

Everyone in the nation’s capitol knew that upwards of a million people were going to descend on the city on January 6 as congress debated whether or not to accept the clearly fraudulent electoral vote, and that professional agitators would certainly be in their midst. The FBI and Department of Justice admitted on Monday that they had been monitoring social media platforms and were aware in advance of plans by some agitators on both the left and the right to mount an effort to storm the Capitol. As is the habit of the raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence that is the FBI, it chose to do nothing more than send out the most rudimentary, standard warnings to the Capitol Police and other law enforcement officials.

There was no reason whatsoever for the Capitol building to have been left so lightly-guarded, other than the Mayor of DC’s refusal to beef up the Capitol Police in advance. We do not know right now if Mayor Bowser had been made aware of the FBI’s warning before January 6 or not, nor do we know what Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Pelosi knew in advance of the riot.

Given that Pelosi has now staged a second impeachment scam based on the riot, and McConnell has expressed his own support of that effort, it is crucial that we find out whether they were warned in advance of the threat and chose to do nothing to prevent it, since that in and of itself might amount to at best an act of criminal negligence.

But you can be sure that it will be a cold day in hell before anyone at the FBI or DOJ will deliver that information to the public. After all, the interests of the DC Swamp UniParty are paramount. You little people can go pound sand.

That is all.

Leftists: You Could Never Make Them Up If They Didn’t Already Infest Our Country

Some days you just cannot believe the crap that emanates from the American political left.

No, correct that: MOST days you cannot believe that crap, and today is no exception. Let’s take a look at a few examples.

First, there is this from fascist New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo:

Now, in all seriousness, is it really possible that this uncaring, unfeeling brute is just now coming aware of the massive cost of his unconsionable, unconstitutional executive edicts being borne disproportionately by the middle class and lower class citizens of his state? Do you really think that’s possible?

Or do you think it is far more likely – exponentially more likely, in fact – that the fascist Governor of New York was informed of some really bad polling numbers related to his conduct in office, and, now that he didn’t get the appointment he was seeking as China Joe Potato Head Biden’s Attorney General, is suddenly worried about his political future, or lack thereof?

Yeah, that’s a ton more likely, isn’t it?

Then there is Cuomo’s counterpart in California, communist Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom. Defending his own record as governor and his state’s increasingly pervasive reputation as being unfriendly to the business community, San Fran Nan’s step-nephew had this to say over the weekend:

Well, golly, Governor, I’m just sure that all the thousands of small business owners whose livelihoods you’ve destroyed and the hundreds of thousands you have put out of work over the past 10 months with your own unconstitutional and unconscionable edicts feel really great knowing that you’ve been taking care of all the dotcom billionaires up in Silicon Valley.

I mean, seriously: What sort of inhuman ghoul even has that thought, much less entertains saying it out loud?

Oh, but let’s not stop with the governors, shall we? How about this from Maryland Congressman David Trone, who actually thought it would be a peachy idea to tweet out these photographs of himself fleeing in a panic last Wednesday:

Holy crap, it’s like a scene out of Forbidden Planet or something. What a pathetic cretin.

Finally, I kid you not, here is a real, true, actual chyron the despicable, corrupt hacks at CNN ran this morning on behalf of their favorite domestic terrorist group:

Image may contain: 1 person, text that says 'Yountville, CA 6:28 AM PT #CNNSOTU ANTIFA LEFTIST MOVEMENT SEEKS PEACE THROUGH VIOLENCE CNN Rep. Adam Schiff (D) Ranking Member, Intelligence Committee :28 AM ET STATE OF THE UNION'

“Antifa Leftist Movement Seeks Peace Through Violence.” That is not a doctored photo.

How long can it be before we see CNN run chyrons on behalf of Antifa that read:

“Antifa Nutritionists: Solving Hunger Through Starvation.”

Or…

“Antifa Doctors: Saving Lives Through Death.”

Or…

“Antifa Quarterbacks: Winning Games By Fumbling in the Endzone and Throwing Pick-Sixes.”

And why limit it to Antifa? How long can it be before we see CNN chyrons that read:

“Nancy Pelosi: Promoting National Unity Through Impeachment.”

Or…

“Andrew Cuomo: Relieving Nursing Home Overcrowding Through COVID.”

Or…

“Joe Biden: Instilling National Confidence Through Forgetting Which City He’s In.”

Ok, that’s enough – this could literally go on forever.

Suffice it to say that if these leftists didn’t already infest our country, you could never, never, ever make them up in a million years.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: Clyburn Signals Impeachment Polling Badly; More Senate RINOs Pile On

This whole impeachment thing is obviously not polling well for them. – As is always the case, Democrats make every decision based on polls and focus groups. This is nothing new, it’s how they have functioned as a party since the advent of the Clinton national plague in 1992.

So, why would anyone think this latest nonsense about impeaching a President who has 9 days remaining in office would be any different? Since last Thursday, all the Democrat chatter has been about kicking the process in the House off when the members convene today. That still would not allow enough time for a Senate trial and conviction prior to January 20 – which, by the way, is not going to happen in any event – but it would be plenty of time for the Adam Schiffs and Gerrold Nadlers and James Clyburns of the world to demagogue the matter for the TV cameras and then get the articles of impeachment over to the Senate before inauguration day.

But a funny thing happened Sunday afternoon. Clyburn, the third-ranking member of San Fran Nans leadership junta in the House, floated the idea during an appearance on Fake Jake Tapper’s CNN show of holding up sending over whatever articles of impeachment he and his band of thugs come up with until after China Joe Potato Head Biden’s 100th day in office. That of course is assuming China Joe remains in office for 100 days, which is not cinch if you know what I mean.

From a story at The Hill:

“We will take the vote that we should take in the House. And [Pelosi] will make the determination as to when is the best time to get that vote and get the managers appointed and move that legislation over to the Senate,” Clyburn added.

“Let’s give President-elect Biden the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running,” Clyburn added. “And maybe we will send the articles some time after that.”

Clyburn went on to say he expected the House to have its final articles of impeachment sometime Monday and take floor action on them by Tuesday or Wednesday. While Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) has written a single article for incitement to insurrection in relation to last week’s deadly Capitol riots, Clyburn said House leaders are also exploring articles related to the president pressuring Georgia officials to change election results.

[End]

“…maybe we will send the articles some time after that.” And if the polling still isn’t going well for them, they’ll never send the articles over to the House. Because that’s how the Democrats operate.

Brain Dead Op/Ed of the Week, by Juan Williams:

Again, last Wednesday was a riot, not a “coup attempt.” If it had been a coup attempt, all those National Guard troops who the President called in would have been charged with arresting members of congress, not with dispersing the rioters and securing the scene.

This is not hard, yet most Americans will sadly fall for the Big Lie.

Nothing to see here, move along… – Meanwhile, as Juan and the rest of the corrupt news media were pushing the Big Lie about last Wednesday, here is a sample of what was happening around the rest of the country.

New York City:

San Diego:

Portland:

“Mostly peaceful.” *sigh*

Friendly Recent History Reminder of the Day. – Just a reminder that, during last Summer’s BLM/Antifa protests in Washington, DC, there was a definite air of insurrection in the air. A national landmark Church was burned. Stores were torched and looted. More than 100 Secret Service, National Guard and police officers were injured. The President was moved by the Secret Service to a bunker in the basement of the White House in order to keep him safe.

On that same night, Kamala Harris and other Democrat members of congress came out to join the BLM/Antifa riot. Joe Biden and the media mocked the President for moving into the bunker. The next day, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser dedicated a park to the rioters and had the BLM motto painted on 17th street. There were few arrests, and no one in the media or in congress talked about having Harris or any other member of congress who supported the rioters removed from office for their obvious insurrection against the federal government.

This concludes your Friendly Recent History Reminder of the Day.

And for those of you still filling my in-box with claims that last Wednesday wasn’t a riot at all… – Well, ‘splain this one to me:

If that doesn’t look like a riot to you, then go somewhere else. Thanks.

Useless Parliamentary Suggestion of the Week comes from Ohio’s Rob Portman:

Dear Sen. Portman: Any “blue ribbon panel” involving Democrats will simply work to lie about all the massive fraud that took place in November’s election and make the fraud processes permanent going forward. But then, you already knew that, didn’t you?

Utterly spineless.

Finally, over in the Senate, the RINOs are forming a stampede. – Since Alaska RINO Lisa Murkowski kicked off the “Trump should resign” mantra late last week, her fellow Trump haters in the Senate have begun to form up their own pro-impeachment/25th amendment/forced resignation caucus. It hasn’t yet reached the critical mass that would be needed to get to a 2/3rds vote in the senate for conviction and removal, but that won’t keep them from trying.

From a story at The Hill:

GOP lawmakers are wrestling with whether to stick with President Trump between now and Jan. 20 as members of his Cabinet consider resigning or invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska became the first Republican senator to call on Trump to resign, declaring on Friday afternoon that “he has caused enough damage.”

“I want him to resign. I want him out,” she told the Anchorage Daily News.

A day later, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), who is retiring at the end of 2022, said Trump’s actions rise to the level of impeachment.

“I do think the president committed impeachable offenses,” Toomey told Fox News during an interview.

Murkowski and Toomey’s comments put pressure on Republican centrists, such as Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah) and Susan Collins (Maine), who as of Saturday night had not addressed whether Trump should step down or be removed from office.

Romney, the only Republican senator to vote to convict Trump on an article of impeachment in February, accused Trump of inciting a mob of supporters to storm the Capitol while Congress was counting the vote of the Electoral College on Wednesday.

Rep. Garrett Graves (R-La.) on Friday called for Trump to step back from the duties of his office, though he said he did not support impeaching the president or invoking the 25th Amendment.

“He effectively needs to resign. And what I mean by that is, effectively, he will not be out there talking, speaking, wielding the full authority and power of the White House, maybe even technically finding a way to hand over the keys to [Vice President] Pence,” he said.

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), a prominent conservative and potential presidential candidate in 2024, said Thursday he would consider voting to convict Trump on an article of impeachment — something he voted against less than a year ago when House Democrats impeached Trump, charging him with abuse of power and obstructing justice.

“If they come together and have a process, I will definitely consider whatever articles they might move, because as I told you I believe the president has disregarded his oath of office,” Sasse said in an interview on “CBS This Morning.”

Murkowski. Romney. Collins. Sasse. Graves. Toomey. Keep a list of these people, folks. Never forget their actions this week. They detest you every bit as much as any Democrat does.

Sunday News Roundup: Murkowski Betrays the Nation; the Truth About the Capitol Riot is Complicated

Can we just trade Lisa Murkowski for Tulsi Gabbard? – Just a reminder that freedom of speech is being eliminated in real time right out in the open, and Alaska RINO Sen. Lisa Murkowski is spending her time talking about impeaching a President who is the main target of Big Tech.

From a story at NPR:

Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska has become the first Republican senator to call on President Trump to resign in the wake of the deadly insurrection this week at the U.S. Capitol, according to two separate, blistering interviews with publications from her home state, the Anchorage Daily News and Alaska Public Media.

Murkowski joins a chorus of Democrats who have said Trump should step down, less than two weeks before President-elect Joe Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration.

[End]

Responding to the calls for impeachment from Murkowski and her comrades in the Democrat Party, Missouri Senator Roy Blunt said impeachment “is not going to happen,” at least before the end of President Trump’s term on January 20.

From a story at The Hill:

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) on Friday dismissed calls to impeach President Trump in the wake of riots inside the U.S. Capitol, signaling that the effort will ultimately fall short.

“No, I think it’s a ridiculous discussion to have. I’ve got enough decisions to make about things that can happen rather than to spend time on things that can’t happen,” Blunt told a Missouri TV station when asked if he supported removing Trump and if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) would bring the Senate back before Jan. 19.

“The Speaker knows this is not going to happen. Sen. Schumer knows this isn’t going to happen. You don’t have the time for it to happen, even if there was a reason. So there’s no reason to debate this except just pure politics,” Blunt added, referring to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.).

Blunt added in a separate interview with KSHB, another Missouri TV station, that impeaching Trump was “not going to happen.”

[End]

Meanwhile, others in the Democrat party are actually entertaining the concept of the House impeaching the President before Inauguration Day on Jan. 20, and then the Senate taking up a trial and attempting to convict President Trump when Chuck Schumer assumes nominal control in the new congress. That would be the height of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater absurdity, of course, but no one should assume this bunch of depraved, demented, despicable Democrats won’t take us there.

Still think Antifa/BLM weren’t involved in what happened on Wednesday at the Capitol Building? – If you do, you’re almost certainly a Democrat, and thus incapable of allowing yourself to learn the actual truth, but here goes nothing anyway.

Andy Ngo reports that the Antifa/BLM thug who organized the Provo, Utah riots last summer during which one person was shot was in the Capitol Building on Wednesday during the riot there:

Who you gonna believe? The corrupt news media or your own lyin’ eyes? If you’re a Democrat, you’re gonna throw in with the creepy liars at CNN.

Welcome to the Capitol Building! The Capitol Police welcome you into our humble home! – What is up with these videos?

Looks pretty suspicious, for sure. What were the rules of engagement that the Capitol Police were working under on Wednesday, and who set those rules? That’s a question no one will likely answer anytime soon.

But, if you’re going to keep filling my in-box with videos like those in an effort to play down what took place at the Capitol on Wednesday, then you should also acknowledge this:

…and this:

…and this:

There is no way to justify or rationalize what took place on Wednesday, folks. It was a bad, bad scene, and two people are dead as the result of it. That can’t just be wiped away.

Yes, Antifa/BLM were involved and likely led the charge, but well over a thousand Trump supporters clearly followed them. Yes, the corrupt news media is lying about everything that took place, but the President himself helped provide the opening for them to do that. Yes, Big Tech is now using it all as a false basis for destroying the right to free speech in America, but the President and Republicans in congress had four long years to do something about Section 230, and did nothing.

It’s a complicated world, and the truth is that everyone must share the blame for the situation in which we currently find ourselves. The Democrats and the corrupt media and the Big Tech oligarchs have all the power now, and they are going to happily and brutishly wield it against all of us, including all you leftist dimwits who are currently sitting out there thinking you are somehow immune from the impacts.

Boy, are y’all in for a big surprise.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Trump Concedes, but the Drumbeat for Impeachment Will Pound on

It’s all over but the peaceful transition. – I told you in yesterday’s Thursday News Roundup that the Trump Administration was over after the riots at the Capitol Building. That made a bunch of people mad at me for pointing out reality – if you think the comments section around here yesterday was something to behold, you should have seen my email inbox – and that’s understandable. But President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) confirmed reality Thursday evening in a short video posted by his proxies on social media:

Here’s an excerpt from a story at DailyWire:

President Donald Trump acknowledged that the 2020 election is officially over in a video statement that he tweeted out late on Thursday where he also promised that those who broke laws yesterday during a riot at the nation’s capital would be criminally prosecuted.

“I’d like to begin by addressing the heinous attack on the United States Capitol,” Trump began. “Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness, and mayhem. I immediately deployed the national guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders. America is and must always be a nation of law and order. The demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy. To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction, you do not represent our country, and to those who broke the law, you will pay.”

“We have just been through an intense election, and emotions are high,” he said. “But now tempers must be cooled and calm restored. We must get on with the business of America. My campaign vigorously pursued every legal avenue to contest the election results. My only goal was to ensure the integrity of the vote. In so doing, I was fighting to defend American democracy. I continue to strongly believe that we must reform our election laws to verify the identity and eligibility of all voters and to ensure faith and confidence in all future elections. Now, Congress has certified the results. A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20; my focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly, and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation.”

“2020 has been a challenging time for our people,” he concluded. “A menacing pandemic has upended the lives of our citizens, isolated millions in their homes, damaged our economy, and claimed countless lives. Defeating this pandemic and rebuilding the greatest economy on earth will require all of us working together. It will require a renewed emphasis on the civic values of patriotism, faith, charity, community, and family. We must revitalize the sacred bonds of love and loyalty that bind us together as one national family. To the citizens of our country, serving as your president has been the honor of my lifetime, and to all of my wonderful supporters, I know you are disappointed, but I also want you to know that our incredible journey is only just beginning. Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.”

[End]

We may never find out, but I think it’s fairly likely that Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham or some other Trump semi-ally in the Senate got on the phone with the President yesterday and told him that unless he issued a concession such as this and promised an orderly transition, there were at least 20 Republican votes in the Senate in favor of removing him from office in an impeachment process. Probably more.

The pre-existence of that many votes, along with the now-50 Democrat votes, would be more than enough to facilitate a very quick impeachment/removal process without holding any hearings, given that the House only requires a majority vote to impeach and the Democrats hold such a majority there. The Q people on Twitter are still out there trying to convince you all that Donald Trump will remain in the presidency past January 20, but that’s not going to happen, folks. There really aren’t any magic bullets in the world.

For those of you still clinging to this nonsense, I’d give you this advice: You can’t take action to solve problems in the real world when you live in a fantasy world.

The President conceded last night. The deed is done. Now let’s all get to work.

The President’s concession won’t stop the drums of resignation and impeachment from beating, though, even among nominal Republicans. – Witness this tweet from reliable RINO Andy McCarthy:

McCarthy, of course, is a member in good standing of the DC Swamp Rat class, the pretend Republicans who put up the pretense of trying to preserve the American Republic during GOP administrations, but who become ultra-malleable squishes whenever the Democrats regain power. No wonder he works for The National Review, which has become one of the reliable homes for such squishes over the past five years.

The only people who say there was an “attempted coup” on Wednesday are people who have no idea what a coup really is. – We have seen that description of Wednesday’s riot – which is what really took place – bandied around by politicians and corrupt media outlets like CNN, the Washington Post and the New York Times.

Here’s a great example from The New Yorker:

Folks, if there had been an attempted coup, then when Trump authorized the activation of the National Guard, the Guard’s assignment would have been to arrest the members of congress who were cowering in their office closets, not to arrest and disperse the rioters. That is what an actual coup attempt by a sitting executive looks like.

But hey, everything you are told by the news media is a lie: Why should this be any different?

I’m just wondering what drug the other half of U.S. voters are addicted to:

The Federalist’s Sean Davis knocks this one out of the park:

Hey, at least it isn’t Andrew Cuomo. – In a preview of coming attractions, China Joe Potato Head Biden nominated Merrick Garland to be the next Attorney General of the United States:

Thus, Mr. Garland gets to be the Wing Man for a President who won’t remember who he is half the time. Should be fun.

But listen: Be glad it’s Garland and not Andrew Cuomo, who was also under consideration. If you think Cuomo has killed a lot of people while serving as Governor of New York, think about what he would have been capable of doing were he put in control of the FBI and the Department of Justice. Garland’s a Democrat, but he does have a reputation for fairness and actual adherence to the law from his years serving on the federal bench.

America dodged a bullet here.

So, on that cheery note…

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: The Trump Administration is Officially Over

Here we see (l to r) Gerrold Nadler, Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi responding to the news yesterday that the barbarians are at the gate:

Image may contain: 5 people

Ok, that isn’t really them, but it might as well be.

Isn’t it interesting that the same DC Swamp class of politicians, bureaucrats, lobbyists and corrupt journalists who have allowed Big Tech to censor our free speech, just gave $700 billion away to foreign countries while awarding the little people with $600 for their troubles, deprived millions of Americans of jobs and small businesses and shut down our churches and schools under the false pretense of fighting a virus have no suddenly formed a consensus that it’s all Trump’s fault? Funny how that works.

Why, even the former presidents weighed in on the matter:

Hey, remind me what they all got together to say when this happened:

MSNBC on Twitter

That was October 4, 2018, when the Hart and Russell buildings were mobbed by Democrats protesting the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. Members of the Senate like Rand Paul were accosted and physically threatened by these activists in the halls of the Russell building. Wonder what the presidential trio said then. Oh, nothing? Well, of course.

Someone should really let Mitt know that congress has a public approval rating in the low-teens among American adults. – In his self-serving speech during yesterday’s DC Swamp Kabuki theater rubber stamping of the electoral vote, Mitt Romney told his fellow senators that they’re “an extraordinary group of people” & “he’s proud to serve” with all of them. That got a round of applause, because of course it did.

Here’s the biggest tragedy of the day:

The woman shot in that video was Ashli Babbit, a 14-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force. Rabble rousers on social media this morning are squealing either that a) she was a violent criminal who deserved to be shot or b) that her shooting by the lone Capitol Police officer on the scene was a completely unjustified “assassination” of an innocent person.

As is always the case, the video shows that the truth lies somewhere in the middle, doesn’t it? That looks to me like a Capitol Police officer who is being confronted with an angry crowd. He doesn’t know if that crowd is carrying guns, knives or other deadly weapons, but he does know that his job is to prevent the rioters from entering further into the Capitol Building.

Shamefully, some pro-Trump agitators on Twitter and Facebook are spreading the lie that Ms. Babbit was not trying to climb through the window that the video clearly shows her trying to climb through, and that she was murdered by the officer in cold blood while she was just standing around, minding her own business. That’s gaslighting on a CNN scale, folks. If you are helping to spread this and myriad other lies being spread around right now by the rabble rousers on either side, you are part of the problem and you need to stop.

Here is more about Ms. Babbit, from a report at Newsweek:

Ashli Elizabeth Babbit, one of four people who died in connection with the violent riots at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, was a 14-year U.S. Air Force veteran and resident of Ocean Beach, a neighborhood in San Diego, California.

She was “transported to a local hospital where, after all life-saving efforts failed, she was announced deceased,” said Police Chief Robert Contee of Washington, D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department (MPD).

The woman began climbing through a broken window near the Speaker’s Lobby at the Capitol building before a single gunshot was heard and she fell back to the ground.

Babbit, who was a high-level security official throughout her tenure with the Air Force, was a strong supporter of President Donald Trump, her husband told KUSI News.

Her previous husband, Timothy McEntee, noted the pair were married from April 2005 to May 2019 and they served in the Air Force together.

Describing her as “a wonderful woman with a big heart and a strong mind” McEntee told The San Diego Union-Tribune: “I am in a state of shock and feel absolutely terrible for her family. She loved America with all her heart. It’s truly a sad day.”

[End]

RIP, Ashli Babbit.

Here’s what needs to happen now if America is to remain a truly civil society: The organizers and leaders of yesterday’s riots need to be identified by law enforcement and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, including being held accountable for Ms. Babbit’s death. It is crystal clear now that at least some of the organizers and leaders of the riot were Antifa terrorists who infiltrated yesterday’s enormous crowd. It is equally clear, however, that many who broke into the Capitol Building were, like Ms. Babbit, Trump supporters.

All of them must be relentlessly hunted down by local, state and federal law enforcement officials and brought to justice.

But I won’t hold my breath waiting for that to happen, and none of you should, either.

Meanwhile, in Riot City USA… – Oh, hey, guess what was happening in Portland, Oregon last night?

It was the city’s third officially-declared riot in the first six days of 2021. But, see, that riot’s ok, because it was conducted by “peaceful” Antifa and BLM terrorists. Nothing to see here, folks, move along.

That is the state of today’s America, like it or not.

And this is how it all ends for President Donald Trump, not with a whimper, but with a bang. His presidency still has 13 days to run, but it ended for all intents and purposes when several thousand of his supporters decided to bust through the perimeter fencing that surrounds the Capitol grounds and hundreds of them stormed the building itself along with a group of obvious Antifa agitators.

If the President is lucky and behaves himself, he will be allowed to serve out his remaining 13 days and leave the White House voluntarily. Or, his cabinet and/or might decide to remove him from office using the 25th amendment should he continue to make (rightful) claims of a stolen election.

Like it or not, rightly or wrongly, President Trump and his supporters yesterday handed his enemies the opening they’ve spent the last four years fruitlessly searching for to use to end his presidency. Make no mistake about it: They will use it.

That is all.

Do These Nitwits Look Like Trump Supporters To You? [UPDATED]

These are the clowns who led the storming of the House Chamber today and took the dais for awhile:

Image may contain: 3 people

Here’s the clown wearing the fur hat with horns at the dais:

Image may contain: one or more people, people sitting, people on stage, table and indoor

Also, note the tattoo on the hand of the clown dressed in the tan sweatshirt:

Image may contain: one or more people

How many Trump supporters have you ever seen with a modified hammer and sickle Antifa tattoo on their left hand?

UPDATE: Oh, hey, horn guy was photographed at a BLM/Antifa rally last summer:

I know, shocking, right?

Riiiiiigggghhhht.

These are not Trump supporters, as the media is uniformly claiming. They are obvious, stereotypical Antifa, who were instructed by organizers to infiltrate today’s protest and dress in this manner:

Image may contain: 1 person, text that says '@KatherineGarth2 Replying to THE_OG_G_Mand @MeidasTouch But just in case. spoke to my Antifa operative in Portland and she said the ones going to DC are going to wear camouflage, cut-offs, and Trump 125 paraphernalia to blend in, but turning their MAGA hats backward for indentification, so feel free to pass along. @onehappyfish 1h ago #millionmagamarch 10, 2020 Twitter #trump2 #holdtheline #conservativehypehouse 23'

That’s what is really happening here. The real Trump supporters marched peacefully down Pennsylvania Avenue and then either milled around or proceeded to disperse.

As is always the case, nothing you are being told by TV news is true. Literally none of it.

As I type this, China Joe Biden is on TV condemning these people under the pretense they are Trump people. You will note that he never one time made any similar statement at any point over the past four years condemning the thousands of incidents of Antifa/BLM violence and destruction.

That failure by not just Biden, but every Democrat and media outlet in America is what leads directly to what we are seeing today. An absolutely inevitable outcome that could have all been prevented had anyone in the Democrat Party delivered a similar speech at any point since their Party literally created and funded Antifa in the wake of the 2016 election.

Anyone who believes that Biden now has some sort of moral authority to calm the waters is living in a dream world.

That is all.
