The USA is Burning

As the blogmaster is typing he is witnessing a scene in the US Capitol akin to what is associated in countries often described as banana republics. It is impossible to find the words to accurately describe events which have caused the ceremonial event of the Electoral College to be suspended as members scatter to preserve life and limb.

In the animal kingdom there are evolution revolutions that occur at same time in several different distance places. It has been proven that penguins on the North and South pole on opposite sides of the world often exhibit similar changes in behavioural patterns at same time.

    Free speech of prejudiced white extremists with their long talk of the lowest common denominator going around the houses with propaganda and hidden agendas and ulterior motives can not and will not ever be tolerated by the free speech of righteous freedom fighters on a higher level like a soul rebel iron lion in zion who believe in truths and rights human rights and equal rights for calling out all cunts as cunts daily as daily operation as they are big cunts, but white extremists and filthy warmongers complain like bitches and snitches and rats in the ditches about the tone of a person to silence freedom fighters for peace using every dirty trick in the book. That’s why there is racist populist white trash rising in USA UK EU public and Government power like a virus and all the while media and press are missing in action as they are controlled by same white racists and their bottom line scam is their own interests of money.

    The only people at Biden’s inauguration will be the invited who decide to show up, antifa types looking to start something and US troops. Maybe the huge buildup of US troops is so they can don plain clothes and pretend to be Biden supporters to have some people in the audience otherwise the place will be like a ghost town without the troops there.

    “WASHINGTON D.C., DC — A Harrisburg woman is wanted for her alleged role in the riot at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. on January 6.

    Riley June Williams is charged with knowingly entering a restricted building or ground without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol Grounds.

    According to the criminal complaint, a former romantic partner of Williams reported to law enforcement that she was depicted in video footage taken inside the U.S. Capitol building on January 6.

    The caller told police that Williams can be seen directing crowds up a staircase inside the U.S. Capitol in this Youtube video. According to the criminal complaint, Williams can be seen at about 20 minutes and 40 seconds in the video, wearing a green t-shirt and brown trench coat while carrying a zebra-print bag over her shoulders.

    The tipster also claimed to have spoken to friends of Williams who showed them a video of Williams taking a laptop computer or hard drive from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office.

    According to the caller, Williams had intended to sell the device to a friend in Russia, who then planned to sell the device to SVR, which is Russia’s foreign intelligence service.

    The criminal complaint states law enforcement was able to confirm that the staircase depicted in the video does lead to Speaker Pelosi’s office, and they were able to grab screenshots of the video that appears to show Williams directing and pointing intruders in a certain direction.

    According to the criminal complaint, other videos obtained by the FBI also depict Williams outside the U.S. Capitol in the same clothing.

    On January 11, law enforcement agents in Harrisburg received a suspicious persons report from Williams’ mother.”

    “A pro-Trump non-profit group called ‘Women for America First’ hosted the “Save America Rally” on January 6 at the Ellipse, an oval shaped, federally owned patch of land near the White House. But an attachment to the National Park Service public gathering permit granted to the group lists more than half a dozen people in staff positions for the event who just weeks earlier had been paid thousands of dollars by Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign. Other staff scheduled to be “on site” during the demonstration have close ties to the White House.

    In a statement, the the president’s re-election campaign said it “did not organise, operate or finance the event.” No campaign staff members were involved in the organisation or operation of the rally, according to the statement. It said that if any former employees or independent contractors for the campaign took part, “they did not do so at the direction of the Trump campaign.”

    The AP’s review found at least three of the names of the Trump campaign aides named on the permit rushed to obscure their connections to the demonstration. They deactivated or locked down their social media profiles, removed tweets that referenced the rally and blocked a reporter who asked questions.

    Caroline Wren, a veteran GOP fundraiser, is named as a “VIP Advisor” on the attachment to the permit that Women For America provided the agency. Between mid-March and mid-November, Donald J. Trump for President Inc. paid Wren $20,000 a month, according to Federal Election Commission records.

    Maggie Mulvaney, a niece of former top Trump aide Mark Mulvaney, is listed on the permit as the “VIP Lead.” She worked as director of finance operations for the Trump campaign. FEC records show Maggie Mulvaney was earning $5,000 every two weeks from Trump’s re-election campaign, with the most recent payment reported on November 13, 2020.”

    “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: These Capitol coup criminals just aren’t very smart.

    Ever since the whiney wypipo war on reality took place at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, The FBI and other law enforcement agencies have been locating participants and taking them into custody. Maybe it was unmitigated whiteness that had these criminal MAGA-minds thinking they could attempt to overthrow the government without facing consequences, but they’ve been so arrogant in their idiocy that they allowed themselves to be photographed and recorded committing insurrection, and they’ve even bragged about it publicly. (Of course, now they’re begging their cult leader for pardons and some have been released since their arrest.)

    It’ll be worth watching the process of American justice as it is applied to the mostly white…

    In Maryland, a self-professed white supremacist was arrested Sunday after the FBI found evidence that he participated in the attack on the Capitol. How did they find him? Well, this genius was wearing a GPS monitor—which he was required to wear after being released from a previous crime—and it placed him at the Capitol during the riot.

    From CBS Baltimore:

    According to a federal affidavit, Bryan Betancur has made statements to law enforcement officers that he is a member of several white supremacy organizations and has voiced “homicidal ideations, made comments about conducting a school shooting and has researched mass shootings,”

    Betancur was previously convicted for fourth-degree burglary and after he was released engaged with “racially motivated violent extremist groups on the internet, expressing his desire to be a ‘lone wolf killer,’” according to CBS News’ David Begnaud.

    His parole officer told the FBI that he claimed to have been inside the Capitol with the rioters on January 6. He also said he was tear gassed and was paranoid about the FBI watching him.

    Maybe I’m just not as smart as I think I am, but I’m guessing Betancur was paranoid about being monitored because he was WEARING A FUCKING MONITORING DEVICE!

    Betancur reportedly lived with his mother in Silver Spring, Md., before January 6, according to the affidavit. He’d been living there since after he was released from jail in November for a previous probation violation. Despite his prior violation—and because maybe some legal officials aren’t much smarter than these criminals are—Betancur was given permission to leave the state and go to D.C. on January 6 to “distribute bibles,” according to CBS, with an organization called Gideon International. (He was probably thinking, “What would Jesus do? Punch the U.S. Capitol in the nuts, that’s what!”)

    Based on a screenshot from the software, Betancur appeared to gone in the direction of the White House Ellipse before moving East to the area around the west front of the U.S. Capitol building, the affidavit says.

    They believe he was in the area of the Capitol building from 2 p.m. to around 5 p.m. based on this information. He was also identified in a social media post from the account “bryan_patriot_1776” holding the corner of the Confederate battle flag.

    Another photograph showed him to appear to be in a Proud Boys t-shirt flashing the “OK” hand signal, commonly used among white supremacy group.

    According to Newsweek, Betancur is facing multiple charges including unlawful activities on Capitol grounds and disorderly conduct.”

    “Hundreds of writers and book agents sign joint letter demanding publishing industry bans Trump memoir
    More than 250 signatories say there should be no book deals for ‘an administration that caged children’ and encouraged a ‘coup’

    Gino Spocchia
    9 hours ago

    Editors, publishing agents and authors have signed-up to a letter in the hundreds, demanding the industry deny Donald Trump the publication of any post-presidential memoir.

    The letter, titled “No Book Deals for Traitors,” was signed by more than 250 editors, authors and publishing agents last week.

    Together, they oppose any Trump administration official from publishing a future book – including the outgoing president, who is rumoured to be considering a memoir.

    Barry Lyga, a novelist who organised the letter, wrote that “As members of the writing and publishing community of the United States, we affirm that participation in the administration of Donald Trump must be considered a uniquely mitigating criterion for publishing houses when considering book deals.”

    He continued: “No participant in an administration that caged children, performed involuntary surgeries on captive women, and scoffed at science as millions were infected with a deadly virus should be enriched by the almost rote largesse of a big book deal.”

    Among the letter’s signatories are staffers from the five biggest publishing houses, Penguin Random House, Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, and Macmillan.

    Mr Lyga told the Los Angeles Times in an email that publishers should “act to the dictates of their conscience and to the extent they are able to effect change,” when it comes to publishing any Trump administration titles.

    Publishing houses have already begun to turn away from Mr Trump’s allies, after Simon & Schuster cancelled a book deal with the Republican senator Josh Hawley.

    Mr Hawley had been among those Republicans in Congress who still voted against Joe Biden’s 2020 election win against Mr Trump, after the president’s supporters stormed the US Capitol in his name, leaving five dead.

    Mr Lyga wrote in the letter to publishers that “no one who incited, suborned, instigated, or otherwise supported the January 6, 2021 coup attempt should have their philosophies remunerated and disseminated through our beloved publishing houses.”

    Mr Trump himself was said to be planning on a memoir once he leaves office, the Washington Post reported in November, following his predecessors. Although no official announcement has been made.
    Such a move would prove valuable to the outgoing president, who has $400 million (£295,242 million) in loans to pay off in the next four years.

    Publishing industry figures are invited to add their names to the”No Book Deals for Traitors”.

    Some of the videos are the equivalent of “I went to (pick a spot) and all I got was this video”, now a woman in Texas who has been charged after posting a video has appealed to Trump for a pardon and why not? Everyone is getting one.

  • Trump will be denied daily Intelligence briefings a courtesy normally extended to ex-Presidents; Why? The Intelligence community does not trust him and believes he is a security risk, this is a man who destroyed his interpreter’s notes of a private meeting he had with Putin.

  • The Trump White House on Monday released the report of the presidential “1776 Commission,” a sweeping attack on liberal thought and activism that calls for a “patriotic education,” defends America’s founding on the basis of slavery and likens progressivism to fascism.

    Its report, released on Martin Luther King’s Birthday, denounces the charge that the American founders were hypocrites who preached equality even as they codified it in the Constitution and held slaves themselves. “This charge is untrue, and has done enormous damage, especially in recent years, with a devastating effect on our civic unity and social fabric,” it says.

    The commission and its report are in part a rebuke to The New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project, which reframes American history around the consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans. The report denounces the project, as did Mr. Trump in his September speech announcing the commission.

    The last paragraph is the operative one, conservatives didn’t appreciate the 1619 project that was overwhelmingly accepted by academics and the general public and Trump came up with a commission to “trump” it. His commission produced this report in less than four months I don’t think anyone will take it seriously.

    You do realise Virginia was settled by Puritans in 1607, don’t you?

    Obviously any academics who overwhelmingly accept that America begun in 1619 are overwhelmingly ignorant!!

    As per wiki

    The project dedicated an issue of the magazine to a re-examination of the legacy of slavery in America, at the anniversary of the 1619 arrival of the first slaves to Virginia, challenging the notion that the history of the United States began in 1776. The initiative quickly grew into a larger project.[22] The project encompasses multiple issues of the magazine, with related materials in multiple other publications of the Times as well as a project curriculum developed in collaboration with the Pulitzer Center, for use in schools.[22] The project employed a panel of historians and had support from the Smithsonian, for fact-checking, research and development.[23] The project was envisioned with the condition that almost all of the contributions would be from African-American contributors, deeming the perspective of black writers an essential element of the story to be told.[24]

  • It appears as though John has given up his ‘count downs’ and Trump receiving 2 or 3 more terms in office, to focus more on American history.

    I’ll remind him it’s only one (1) day remaining before Biden’s inauguration.

    Rush Limbaugh admitted Trump is gone, perhaps it’s time for John to do the same.
