And when only antifa shows up they will call them white supremacists.

Kind off hard to hold an armed insurrection without, ummm, arms.

So.......I am not advocating anything, but if someone were to make threats for the next year or two, could we get the House to cancel sessions for a while longer?  ...like a couple years?

Well, now I'm leaning towards gaslighting and agenda pushing. I read this morning that they claim the "threat" came from the Three Percenters ("but we can't go into more detail because of security"), so fake news. That's not what the Three Percenters do.

If they wanted to make it sound more credible, they should have picked some wacko group, but I guess that thanks to the MSM, Three Percenters are more well known as a "militia".

3 percent types are no first use of force in their bylaws. Zero details, sources, or arrests. If they actually had something there would be a Roger Stone arrest and show trial.

Of course it was.  Everybody knew this ... except the MSM.

No, they knew it as well. They were lying, just as the rest of the Democrats were and are.
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

Funny how this little dance works. The MSM finds a new date for a new insurrection, and the gov wants the National Guard presence extended. They of course don't say that one is related to the other, but kind of a coinkidink that they keep happening, one followed by the other.

Holy hell, at least 100 more arrests on the way. At the same time that at least triple that number have had their cases dismissed with prejudice over the antifa and blm riots.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/at-least-100-more-expected-to-be-charged-in-capitol-breach-investigation-doj_3731136.html

Quote
“While most of the cases have been brought against individual defendants, the government is also investigating conspiratorial activity that occurred prior to and on January 6, 2021,” the court documents said. “Some of the conspiratorial activity being investigated, such as the activity under investigation in this matter, involves a large number of participants.”

"Conspiratorial activity" sounds like a dangerous and undefined catch-all.

ETA: Also this:

Quote
They noted that more than 15,000 hours of surveillance and body-camera footage is being reviewed, 1,600 devices have been confiscated, “hundreds of searches of electronic communication providers” have been carried out by law enforcement, and more than 200,000 tips have been received so far.

You may have misread.  Those are antifa/blm riot charges that are being dismissed.

The message is loud and clear.

I was unaware of that. These are the same people pushing elimination of bail and letting (certain) people loose on their own recognizance, no?

a court filing on Friday by the U.S. asks for “a 60-day continuance” and for the court “to exclude the time within which the trial must commence under the Speedy Trial Act.”

Two men have been charged with assaulting fallen U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick on Jan. 6 after prosecutors say video evidence shows them dousing Sicknick and other law enforcement officers with a chemical spray outside the building.

Quote
He faces several felonies, including assault with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to injure a law enforcement officer and obstruction of a federal proceeding. He faces up to 60 years in prison.

Up to 60 years in prison for using what appears to be bear spray, which antifa uses every night on anyone they don't like, in every city where they protest. I see video after video of them spraying people, yet none are arrested and certainly not charged with assault or carrying a dangerous weapon, and especially not faced with 60 years in the slammer.

The capitol riots were wrong, but the extremely uneven application of the legal system is even more wrong.

I try hard to see both sides of an issue.  Things wouldn't be "an issue" if there weren't multiple perspectives.

I have a hard time seeing any balance with how the capitol hill riots are being treated vs the routine riots that have gripped major US cities for the past year.

It's quite clear that legal force being applied much more heavily to protesters/rioters of one particular political ideology vs another.
