    The deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week marked a shocking milestone in the evolution of extremist groups when, for the first time, a diverse mix of organizations converging for a major assault, said current and former federal law enforcement officials. ........ [Stuff about John Sullivan / Insurgence USA, Black Lives Matter, QAnon, Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Three Percenters, etc] “If you look at social media, you can see a lot of affiliation with some of the protest activity and it runs the whole gamut from soup to nuts,” Michael Sherwin ...... “We don’t have any direct evidence of...
  • Amnesia of the anarcho-tyrannists Michelle Malkin: 'Riots and invasive protest are the primary means by which the left operates'

    Is it just me or has the entire universe of establishment media, politics and Hollywood forgotten that this country has endured an entire year of relentless violent anarcho-tyranny? Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters set businesses and churches ablaze, smashed state capitols and laid siege to federal courthouses. They permanently destroyed precious statues and symbols of America's heritage. They assaulted elderly people, stalked and menaced bystanders, taunted and terrorized law enforcement. And they committed murder – dozens of times – in the name of social justice while the powers that be sat idly by. How conveniently they have all forgotten...

    Very simple here for this morning. I have in my Internet Radio preset radio frequencies WMAC, 970 AM, Macon, Georgia. I have kept that preset for years and have used it as a source for conservative talk and commentary. We have very many Christian conservative friends in that region. Of late, Erick Erickson has been the morning host (9 to 12 Eastern). And today I am writing him, not in my Free Republic screen name, but in my own name to ask him, "Mr. Erickson, are you, in actuality, a tool of the left, or worse?" My impression of this...

    A West Virginia senator who traveled to the rally that turned into a riot in Washington, D.C., last week said he hopes to be summoned back. “The rally was something that our president called for,” said Senator Mike Azinger, R-Wood. “I didn’t necessarily want to make that long trip and stay out in the cold. I didn’t necessarily want to put myself through that. I’d rather watch on TV, but there’s a time where we all have to make a little bit of sacrifice. Our president called us to D.C.” Azinger concluded, “It was inspiring to be there and I...

    Donald Trump declared a state of emergency in the District of Columbia on Monday. His announcement comes ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20. Federal assistance has been ordered to the District beginning Monday and continuing through January 24, enabling FEMA to "coordinate all disaster relief efforts" with the purpose of "alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population" and provide assistance in any emergencies that arise. As Biden's inauguration day gets closer, authorities in Washington, D.C., are preparing for marches and more potential violence after the failed insurrection attempt on Wednesday that...

    I am having problem to understand and reconcile the storm against president Trump: 1. Is Donald Trump still president of the USA? 2. Is he still in charge of present government? 3. Is he being accused of sedition, treason, whatever, against government? So he is inciting "overthrow" of his own government??? Against himself??? Impeach, impeach, impeach for what?

    The attitude of much of the media in which they display amazing tolerance for leftist rioting versus their sudden extreme antipathy towards the recent riots at the Capitol has been visually illustrated by author James Lindsay in his Thursday tweet. Lindsay contrasted the headlines of Vox writer German Lopez on the topics of riots which showed a most definite and convenient change in attitude from 2016 to now.

    We all know about our own Revolution, but how many know how the French Revolution started? It took only about 1,000 citizens armed with muskets and a limited supply of ammunition, to storm the Bastille on the July 14 in 1789. They demanded surrender of the prison, because they wanted to free their friends and relatives the King had arrested for various unwarranted reasons. Negotiations began but, a few hours later, the angry crowd attacked the undefended outer courtyard and cut the drawbridge chains. 3 1/2years later, King Louis XVI lost his head. (9 Months later his wife, Marie Antoinette,...

    Epoch Times via NOQ Report ^ | 01/08/2021 | Zachary Steiber
    A Black Lives Matter activist was part of the group that entered the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. John Earle Sullivan, who has advocated for an armed revolution on social media, was arrested in July 2020 for making a threat of violence and criminal mischief. He organized a protest with Black Lives Matter activists and members of the far-left Antifa network. According to the Deseret News, Sullivan damaged vehicles and urged people to block roadways. Video footage captured him threatening to beat a woman. Photographs showed Sullivan inside the Capitol in Washington on Jan. 6. Sullivan has since given interviews claiming...

    The U.S. Capitol Police has disputed reports that an officer has died one day after protests in Washington. “Media reports regarding the death of a United States Capitol Police (USCP) officer are not accurate,” Capitol Police said in a statement to The Epoch Times. “Although some officers were injured and hospitalized yesterday, no USCP officers have passed away,” the statement continues. “We ask that our officers’ and their families’ privacy be respected at this time. Should a statement become necessary, the Department will issue one at the appropriate time.” The statement did not identify the officer. Reports came from CNN...

    It may be weeks before we fully understand the fallout from the January 6, 2021 storming of the Capitol building. The prevailing consensus from conservative talk radio hosts and editors is that this event provided ammunition to Trump’s enemies and gave squishy Republicans an excuse to abandon their objections to the certification of Biden’s electors. They may be true, but based on what I saw experienced first-hand, I am conflicted on what to say about those who entered the building.According to the website “wildprotest.com,” the original plan was to gather at the Whitehouse Ellipse from 9am to 12pm, then gather...

    Like pretty much all conservatives, I have consistently criticized riots and other forms of political violence for many years. That includes yesterday’s Washington, D.C. riot. You can’t say the same about liberals, however. Until yesterday, one might have thought that liberals consider rioting and other forms of political violence to be as American as apple pie.You could write a book in support of that proposition, but for now let’s cite just a few examples. Do you remember when President Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017? Leftist Democrats rioted in Washington that day. That riot was arguably worse, more violent...

    I guess someone has to do it…With all the network traffic going on out there, it’s time to pose questions I haven’t heard asked:1. Other than Ashli Babbit, do we have any more casualties? Anyone in the hospital? Minor injuries?2. Have there been any arrests? If so, how many? Are contingency plans needed for those who may be incarcerated?3. Is anyone who went to the protest still trapped in DC?4. Is anyone planning on staying? If so, are replenishments needed?5. For those returning – did you arrive back safe?6. (not to be shared publicly) Did anyone learn any intelligence they...

    The Federalist ^ | January 7, 2020 | Ben Domenech
    A little over a decade ago, I was tear-gassed for the first time. It was the first day of September in the Twin Cities, and the anti-globalist, anti-war protesters were milling about with giant papier-mache heads of the people they hated. Mark Hemingway was there. My future wife and mother of my child was inside. It was painful. Afterward, I left and set up my laptop at a nearby rooftop bar and had the best Guinness I’ve ever ordered in my life. The reports about the protesters were overwhelmingly sympathetic. These were justified because of the wars. The New York...

    Wild footage posted online shows the moment a mass of rioters easily overtakes police outside the Capitol building on Wednesday. The video, first posted to TikTok, then shared on Twitter, is shot from behind the flimsy barricades that proved to be no match for a sea of President Trump supporters set on breaching the Capitol building. The demonstrators can be seen easily pushing through the barriers and the limited police presence.

    Facebook is removing calls for peaceful protests in Washington DC, and photos and videos from protestors, which are tantamount to “promotion of criminal activity.” Hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters gathered in the nation’s capital, to protest the Electoral College certification in Congress, where many states allegedly won by Joe Biden suffered from severe election integrity issues, and massive voter fraud.Thousands of patriots stormed the Capitol Building, forcing the joint session of Congress to be suspended. One unarmed Trump supporter, purportedly a young woman, was shot and killed by DC Police just outside the Senate chambers. An eyewitness told National...

    Trump supporters say that antifa members disguised as one of them infiltrated the protesters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. A retired military officer told The Washington Times that the firm XRVision used its software to do facial recognition of protesters and matched two Philadelphia antifa members to two men inside the Senate. The source provided the photo match to The Times. One has a tattoo that indicates he is a Stalinist sympathizer. antifa promotes anarchy through violence and wants the end of America in favor of a Stalinist-state. “No more USA at all” is a protest chant. XRVision...

    NY Post ^ | December 18, 2020 | By Craig McCarthy
    The NYPD’s tactics during the George Floyd protests earlier this year “heightened tensions” between cops and protesters — and “inconsistent” enforcement of the curfew by cops led to unnecessary use of force, a new report says. “NYPD use of force and crowd control tactics often failed to discriminate between lawful, peaceful protesters and unlawful actors, and contributed to the perception that officers were exercising force in some cases beyond what was necessary under the circumstances,” the city’s Department of Investigation found. The long-awaited 100-page report, which was released Friday morning, doesn’t address individual officer allegations but the systemic issues in...
