Trump Protected the Rioters

Trump let officers in riot gear protect his Bible waving at St. John’s Church, but as a commander in chief he refused to protect the Capitol, the constitution, the Vice President and the Congress.

The GOP will acquit Trump, the man who turned the GOP into an organization which depends on the sympathy of domestic terrorists.

McConnell sees Trumpism as a Liability for the GOP

[…] McConnell clearly has come to see Trump — and Trumpism — as a liability for his party in the future. Comparisons are drawn with the rise of the Tea Party roughly a decade ago — a development which on one hand gave the GOP a new infusion of energy and on the other produced eccentric nominees who lost winnable Senate races.

“I don’t think that the every day American understands what actually happened here.”

I don’t think that the every day American understands what actually happened here. I don’t think they’ve tried to put themselves in AOC’s shoes. Can you imagine knowing that there have been plans and threats to storm your place of work for months, all the while your employer not only actively works against protecting you, but also invites the behavior? Just down the road, you have components to the most powerful military in the world, and they were ordered to standby and do nothing.

How can anybody trust in that process in a meaningful way ever again? The only way is to have harsh and real consequences. The reality is none of these consequences have really been given yet… Sure we have seen charges and indictments, but it will be really telling to see how this actually plays out in court, and who receives prison sentences commiserate with the crimes. Examples need to be made of every participant, and even more so of every person who took a leadership or influential role in allowing this to happen, whether that be incitement, funding, encouragement, the whole 9 yards. We need accountability.

Take to the US Capitol Lawn and Steps

Peter Navarro releases 36-page report alleging election fraud ‘more than sufficient’ to swing victory to Trump
https://t.co/D8KrMHnFdK. A great report by Peter. Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election. Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!

We the People must take to the US Capitol lawn and steps and tell Congress #DoNotCertify on #JAN6! Congress cannot certify this fraudulent Electoral College. Our presence in Washington D.C. will let Members of Congress know that we stand with Rep. Mo Brooks and his colleagues in the House of Representatives who will bravely object to the certification of the Electoral College. We’re in need of at least one Senator. We’ve identified six (seven including Senator-elect Tommy Tuberville) that could join our cause.
StopTheSteal.us is working closely, whipping the vote up, with patriots in the Congress.

‘Be There. Will Be Wild!’: Trump All but Circled the Date

Inside Trump supporters’ online echo chambers, the chaos of Jan. 6 could be seen coming. People posted their plans to come to Washington — and showed the weapons they would carry.

[…]

Mr. Trump concluded his 70-minute exhortation by encouraging everyone to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue to give Republicans at the Capitol “the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country.” Then the president of the United States returned to the White House, at a safe distance from the mayhem that was to unfold.

Things and Events That Happen

The President of the USA justified domestic terror:

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with & in peace. Remember this day forever!

Jan 6, 2021

Before that Tweet, Trump posted a video in which he said (according to Snopes.com):

I know your pain. Your hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election, and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt. It’s a very tough period of time. There’s never been a time like this where such a thing happened where they could take it away from all of us. From me, from you and from our country.

This was a fraudulent election, but we can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So, go home, we love you, you’re very special. You’ve seen what happens. You’ve seen the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel. But go home and go home in peace.
