    The Rushingbrook Children's Choir's rendition of the National Anthem in the Statuary Hall at the United States Capitol was interrupted mid-song by the Capitol Police on the grounds that singing this song is considered "an unauthorized protest." Spokesperson for the choir Christina Chapman Heffernan's attempt to present evidence that the performance was authorized in advance by Reps. Russell Fry, Joe Wilson, and William Timmons was brushed aside by Capitol Police Officer Jack Boute who insisted that "some Capitol visitors might consider it offensive. It is our national anthem. Why should foreign visitors be subjected to it? On top of this,...

    In a shocking turn of events, the Rushingbrook Children’s Choir was interrupted and stopped while singing the National Anthem in Statuary Hall at the United States Capitol. The children, part of the esteemed Rushingbrook Children’s Choir, had traveled to Washington, D.C., for a scheduled Capitol tour and had received prior approval to sing a short set of patriotic songs inside the historic Statuary Hall. However, as their angelic voices filled the grand hall while singing The Star-Spangled Banner with pride, Capitol Police rudely intervened, insisting that the children stop singing immediately. The abrupt interruption stunned the young performers, the choir...

    WASHINGTON—Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.), a former Louisiana sheriff, physically removed a protester who crossed into a Republican news conference on May 17 and approached Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) in a way Higgins described as “threatening.” The news conference, during which Higgins, Boebert, Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), and others expressed their opposition to ongoing treaty negotiations with the World Health Organization, was interrupted when a left-wing protester began heckling members of Congress. After the protester crossed into the news conference, Higgins removed him. The conference was in the House Triangle, one of the most popular news conference...

    The Capitol Police couldn’t even defend their own building, nor could they defend Pelosi’s San Francisco home from an illegal alien hammer man, but somehow, they have now established national offices to monitor U.S. citizens outside their jurisdiction? Now they want more money and authority. Are you kidding me? This week, House Republicans crafted the annual appropriations bill funding the legislative branch of government, typically the smallest and least controversial of the 12 annual spending bills. However, in that bill they plan to provide $780.9 million to the U.S. Capitol police, which is $46.3 million more than enacted fiscal year...

    Michael A. Bolton, the inspector general for the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP), detailed the changes he recommended that the force needs before a House committee on Thursday Bolton said that the culture of the Capitol Police force needs to change and address the areas of intelligence, training and operational planning. "In regards to culture change, we see that the department needs to move away from the thought process as a traditional police department and move to the posture as ...... a protective agency," ...... ..Bolton said in his statement. A police department is a reactive force. A crime is committed;...

    In March Tucker Carlson aired several minutes of footage out of the 40,000 hours of total video taken by government cameras on January 6, 2021, in Washington DC. Tucker’s producers were given access to the footage by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. Tucker showed peaceful protesters walking through the halls of the US Capitol, police waving Trump supporters into the building, and police escorting the “Q-Shamen” Jacob Chansley through the halls that day. Chansley was later sentenced to four years in prison for walking inside the US Capitol with police escort On Monday, Tucker Carlson was let go by FOX News....

    President Biden fired Architect of the Capitol Brett Blanton on Monday, a White House official told The Hill, following outrage over an inspector general report that found Blanton misused a government vehicle and allegedly impersonated a law enforcement officer. “After doing our due diligence, the Architect of Capitol was terminated at the President’s direction,” the official said. The president’s move comes just hours after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) called for Blanton to step down or be removed by Biden. House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil (R-Wis.) and ranking member Joseph Morelle (D-N.Y.) had also called for the resignation of...

    Former President Trump said Thursday that he “totally” disagrees with Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on the death of Ashli Babbitt, a Jan. 6 rioter who was shot and killed by Capitol Police. After Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed on Tuesday that Babbitt had been murdered during the pro-Trump insurrection, McCarthy broke with the Georgia congresswoman, who has become one of his most important supporters within the Republican conference. “I think the police officer did his job,” McCarthy told reporters when asked if he agreed with Greene’s take on Babbitt’s death. Trump fired back in a post on Truth Social, claiming...

    A little-noticed bill passed before Christmas shows that the U.S. Senate knows Nancy Pelosi had more to do with the U.S. Capitol breach on January 6, 2021, than anything President Trump did that day. Indeed, Nancy Pelosi could be crowned Queen of the Mob, since her actions led to the crashing of the perimeter fences, general dysfunction, and deaths of Trump supporters that day. Even after the one-sided January 6 Committee left Pelosi’s role on the cutting room floor, there’s one inescapable conclusion: If she’d done her job, there would have been no riot, no deaths of Trump supporters, no...

    The Capitol Police chief who handled the Jan. 6 riot says political bureaucracy under Speaker Nancy Pelosi put optics over safety and hampered his department from crafting an appropriate security plan to protect the home of Congress that fateful day. Steven Sund, who resigned as the head of the $600 million a year Capitol Police Department after the tragedy, told the "Just the News, No Noise" television show on Wednesday that significant lapses occurred inside his department, inside the political leadership of Congress and across federal law enforcement and security agencies in the days before the Capitol riot. Sund warned...

    WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell thanked police officers Thursday for “saving our country” by defending Congress from a mob of then-President Donald Trump’s supporters on Jan. 6, 2021. The Kentucky Republican hailed members of the US Capitol Police and DC Metropolitan Police departments during the presentation of the Congressional Gold Medal to the forces that battled rioters who disrupted certification of Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election. “Because of your bravery and professionalism, Congress finished our job that very night. Because you honor your oath to support and defend the Constitution, we were able to honor...

The officers were monitoring a live-feed of many cameras, which include surveillance of the capitol complex, but also monitor some points away from the capitol, which include the Pelosi residence.

The California field office will be located in San Francisco, with another new field office to be located in Tampa, Florida to help investigate threats in the Southeast.

    In 2021, TGP asked how come Trump supporters were searched and detained on Jan 6 because of the so-called pipe bomber, but the members of Antifa who were at the Capitol with guns were allowed to leave town. In August of this year, Revolver released information on the mysterious pip bomber. It was uncovered that the FBI had video of the bomber planting the bomb at the DC headquarters that was not being released. Today, Darren Beattie, from Revolver released more information on the mysterious pipe bomber from Jan 6.

    He was the only person on camera speaking about going into the capitol the day before the fateful events of January 6. For an event that led to arrests for people who just walked on the grass, Ray Epps was left alone. When many were locked in jail for over a year, Ray never spent a moment incarcerated. When old ladies with cancer were locked up for a month, Ray was in his camper in Arizona. Why would the FBI and Capitol Police take such a hands off approach to such a pivotal figure in the greatest potentially staged government...
