More sympathetic to the protestors than I expected.

A minor point: do you think Congresswoman-elect Boebert will still be allowed to carry her pistol in the Capitol?

That very question went through my head earlier

CBS News claims that Trump's cabinet is considering invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him:

For now, file it under rumor or wishful thinking.

Or will a whole bunch of Congresspeople start carrying in the Capitol?

Oh yea,  I mean, two weeks before he's out of office, all of a sudden,  he needs to be removed via 25th amendment.  :facepalm:

The cabinet can consider all they want; they can't do anything w/o the vice-president signing-off on it.

I would say that when a representative republic cannot hold elections without this level of distrust and uncertainty, and congress can't hold congressional proceedings without barricading doors and shooting people... well the system is failed and walking dead.

I think that we are witnessing "the day" the USA fell. The storming of Capitol Hill is for the US sort of what the tearing down of the Berlin wall was for the Soviets.

I sooooo hope you're wrong, Blakenzy.  Unfortunatly,   for a number of years I've had the feeling that this country was getting closer to some type of ...... dystopic event that would cause a nasty schizm in America ......  :'( 

I somehow doubt the current president-elect has the ability or wisdom to solve the problem and redirect our country's current path.

Looks like a 15-20 foot fall.  Did the guy really die?

Nothing in the news about his death.  The news says four people died: the one lady who was shot and three others who had personal medical emergencies.

So....

These were riots.

I guess to have mostly peaceful protests you need more arson and looting.

The riot organizers will likely be charged with the death of Ashli Babbitt.

It will be interesting to see if this is the case. I read confirmation that the police shot her.

It has been a bit disgusting for me to see the people who were excusing/supporting/cheering antifa now suddenly finding the need to punish rioters at all costs. The hypocricy makes me want to vomit.

Also all the conservative legislators that were rightly questioning all the fishy stuff during the election now doing a 180, I'm guessing to save their careers, though they may have misidentified their audience.

"Pearl Harbor".

I'm starting to feel like this guy:

Part two of my three part plan for living through the death of America - laying low in the sticks and being an outlaw against progressive laws - sounds about right for me these days.

And the MSM has been telling people for years that the biggest threat to the country is right wing extremism, and (lately) "Christian nationalism", whatever that is.  So, roll in the tanks.

The woman killed was a 14 year AF veteran. Just to show how things can get twisted I've seen comments where people are foaming at the mouth that they shot a 14 year old.

The globalist Uni-Party is not happy.

It's good to see all the fake Republicans/conservatives out themselves.

Trump the court jester continues to trigger all the fakes and phonies on the "right" to unmask themselves as sycophants to the globalist Uni-Party.

Actually a very healthy development.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

This guy looks a little more antifa than trumper with the hippie hair and skinny jeans.



I've come to believe anything is possible, regardless of how tinfoil-hattish it might be. For example, these guys look like they got swept up in the moment while on their way to some gaming convention:
