The Trump Coupers has violently suspended the certification of votes in the presidential election.

Congress had to flee and hide.

It is also the first time anyone has broken into the Capitol by force since the British Army in 1814.


From the link CrownRoyal posted:

18 U.S. Code § 2384 - Seditious conspiracy

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

"As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C., we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump

This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump
will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.

Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our Civic Integrity or Violent Threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account.

Our public interest policy — which has guided our enforcement action in this area for years — ends where we believe the risk of harm is higher and/or more severe.

We’ll continue to evaluate the situation in real time, including examining activity on the ground and statements made off Twitter. We will keep the public informed, including if further escalation in our enforcement approach is necessary.

Tom, Uhm, do you not remember this summer when hordes of people ( many black) burned and looted cities, literally overthrew a sitting government by force and the Democratic response was to largely let them go and not press charges and to let then be.

Notable exceptions to denounce the violence*

Trump goes a step further and tells people to go home.

And the same people pushing for communist riots claim he caused this.

And what about the stolen hard drives and files, and potential key logging devices and bugs that may have been placed. This is supposed to be the third most secure building in Washington, no one is talking about the data breach or how long it's going to take #CyberSec to clear.

We don’t know if foreign agents took part in the looting. Maybe they were searching for something, stole things, maybe they planted bugs. They could have planted bugs anywhere in Capitol. Perhaps even a tactical nuke that can bet set off remotely.

tw, Protests often have the point of disrupting.

These people have a grievance, which is their right.

They are allowed to protest, which is their right.

They are not allowes to break windows and humorously take the podium, or make the mess they did.

It definitley went to far. considering the police let them in, Im not sure it's trespassing though.

Compared to what we have seen over the last year, this was pretty tame. They didnt go in and destroy the place or burnt it.

They took selfies with the cops who welcomed them in for a protest.

Notice how the media doesnt stress " mostly peacefull" every time they mention it. Instead they liken it to to a coup.

However when we had an actual Coup, the thought of bringing cops/NG was " just going to make it worse" because they were democrats.

Its hypocrisy to an absurd degree.

"considering the police let them in, Im not sure it's trespassing though"

the police didn't let them in

cops -in one area- seemed to abandon the barricades far from the building... plenty of obvious struggling seen too other areas, & obviously not welcomed inside the building

which was occupied... if BLM rioters were invading places of work while workers were inside it would have been treated as much more dangerous

and there was no actual coup in Portland

& this -was- specifically called "mostly peaceful", i heard it myself... until they invaded... NO different than w/ others (that 'fiery protests' still-frame only works as a still-frame as the video shows "mostly peaceful UNTIL not...")

& this one didn't have extended periods of peacefulness during the day, & only turning violent only at night... it was quick to the invasion

There are very few politicians who probably needed to follow the protocol they did. Pence, Pelosi, McConnell, AOC, Omar come to mind. The rest could very likely chill and nothing would have happened, unless trigger-happy cops shot more people. Guys like Gosar would likely have been cheered and asked for selfies.

michael tracey:

We are being told that a “coup attempt” no longer needs to be understood as constituting an “attempt” to seize control of the government — as had generally been the common understanding of the term before the events of yesterday, which have caused the entire political and media establishment to go completely haywire.

Is it unusual for a mob to breach the Capitol Building — ransacking offices, taking goofy selfies, and disrupting the proceedings of Congress for a few hours? Yes, that’s unusual. But the idea that this was a real attempt at a “coup” — meaning an attempt to seize by force the reins of the most powerful state in world history — is so preposterous that you really have to be a special kind of deluded in order to believe it..


At no point yesterday was the American government at risk of being “overthrown,” as members of Congress have laughably suggested. Per usual, our guardians of consensus can’t bring themselves to describe what unfolded with any degree of dispassion or calm. Instead we’re told by the incoming Senate Majority Leader, for example, that January 6, 2021 will now “live in infamy” right alongside December 7, 1941. Elected officials issued emotional notices that they were “okay,” like they had just narrowly avoided being crushed in an earthquake, or escaped the World Trade Center on 9/11. This is made all the more odd because the only person upon whom lethal force was committed appears to have been a Trump-supporting woman who was shot point-blank in the throat by a Capitol Hill police officer. She’s now dead. Congress was temporarily inconvenienced.

TW, CHAZ occupied the Seattle police office IIRC. This is borderline a real coup.

I would call it a full on real coup only because they didn't arrest/kill/exile the previous leaders, they did fight them in the streets.

But for about 3 weeks they literally kicked out the police and ran it themselves until people started getting killed.

And do you recall the Democratic response? Let them go, no arrests and god forbid no NG.

Now they bitch because the NG were not there fast enough, which was within hours.

Ironically chaz was in "Capitol Hill" neighborhood, so technically they did storm Capitol Hill, Seattle.
