    This is going to be a super spreader event…of enormous proportions.

    Biden should nominate Anita Hill to the Supreme Court.

      Trump hates Pence, always has. He wants to destroy any chance Pence might have in 2024. I certainly don’t want Pence to be in a position to run for POTUS either but the way Trump is doing this is just sadistic.

    • NW Luna says:

      Trump is pounding his fists on his desk and screaming “Lies, lies! You’re fired!” while Pence ignores him.

  8. dakinikat says:

    Ted Cruz and his minion of motherfuckers actually stood up clapping for what is basically an act of sedition. Clapping for an attempt to overturn the result of a state’s democratic votes in our Federalist system and delineated in the Constitution. Scalise just said that Arizonia did not select duly elected electors. This is a coup. These folks should be put on a boat in the middle of the ocean and abandoned there.

  9. RonStill4Hills says:

    Coup D’etat in progress.

    If this were anyone other than white conservatives they would be getting the Tiannenmen Square treatment.

    But since they are Trump they are coddled.

    WhatTheEverlovingFuck.

  10. RonStill4Hills says:

    This is the ultimate expression of White Privilege.

    • NW Luna says:

      And White Male privilege. Haven’t seen a whole lot of women except for a token few at the back.

      • NW Luna says:

        I also think they’re pissed and worried now that a Black won Georgia.

      • RonStill4Hills says:

        Correct. White hippies, gays, feminists, antiwar protestors, and a few others groups are favored PD punching bags. Excommunicated Whites. BLM sympathyzers, (aka N****r Lovers).

        How the hell are they still in the Capitol?

        If BLM had telegraphed for months that they were going to do this on Jan 6, dawn would have seen a shoulder to shoulder cordon of officers ringing the entire Capitol Hill.

        • Enheduanna says:

          Like this?

        • NW Luna says:

          also from the WaPo updates:

          “Top Pentagon officials, in answering a request by D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) to deploy National Guardsmen in the nation’s capital in advance of Wednesday’s protests, emphasized that the Guard wouldn’t carry firearms, use armored vehicles or helicopters, or receive backup from units in other states — a far more muted presence than in June after the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd.”

          Helluva difference.

  11. NW Luna says:

    Shortly before 3 p.m., an ambulance pulled up to the southeast corner of the Capitol on Independence Avenue. A team of paramedics with a gurney rushed to the south side of the building, where a Capitol Police officer stepped aside to let them pass. “White female, shot in the shoulder,” the officer said as they hurried past.

    Minutes later, they emerged. On the gurney was a woman in jeans, gazing vacantly to one side, her torso and face covered in blood.

    William LeGate 🇺🇸 (@williamlegate) Tweeted:
    This was the capitol’s security when there were black protestors on the streets https://t.co/WpYT2Lz0md

    I thought the security beforehand was light and easily overwhelmed. Those fuckers who are wrecking the capitol should be locked up! Not enough cops to repel that crowd.

  14. NW Luna says:

    (snicker) Sounds like something my governor would write.

  15. NW Luna says:

  16. NW Luna says:

  17. Enheduanna says:

    Have they even made one single arrest? Where are the tanks they roll out for when black people sit on their front porch?

    • NW Luna says:

      Apparently white terrorists are allowed to disperse.

      • Enheduanna says:

        Just saw a report they made a whopping 15 arrests so far. Every person in the Capitol building should have been arrested on the spot. They’re not arresting any of the curfew breakers either.

    • dakinikat says:

      I heard them say the Capitol police were concerned with giving them a photo op like a Tienaman Square moment. I guess that’s more concerning when it’s a bunch of white people invited into the compound by the Seditionist in chief.

  18. bostonboomer says:

    The woman who was shot and killed was a black woman. The entire thing is on video and I watched it on Twitter. She must have been a Congressional staffer. She was bleeding from the neck.

  20. bostonboomer says:

  21. bostonboomer says:

    On CNN, Jim Acosta said he talked to a WH staff member who said Trump is literally “out of his mind.” Some business groups are trying to get Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and get Trump out immediately.

  23. bostonboomer says:

  24. MsMass says:

    Anybody listening to the Senate? Boy ,the Repugs are walking it back, blaming Trump if they blame anybody, no regret over what their party did. So hesitant in their outrage.
    The Dems are doing pretty damn good, Schumer was forceful.
    Now to just get Trump out tomorrow!

  25. NW Luna says:

    Finally the MSM (WaPo banner) uses the right words: “President incites crowd to acts of insurrection, violence”

  26. NW Luna says:

    • quixote says:

      I went back through her tweets and it sounds in context that she’s saying “just go ahead and expel these two jerks right now.”

      In other words, not that they already have been expelled which is what I was hoping she meant. Ah well. Can’t have everything.

      But maybe we’ll wake up tomorrow to the news that the Cheeto-topped Dogpile has been put in a poopy bag and removed from the White House. /*dreams beautiful dream*/

      • NW Luna says:

        Yeah, I thought at first they were expelled, like the ones expelled for denying the valid electoral votes for Lincoln back in the 1800s. No such luck.

  27. NW Luna says:

  28. NW Luna says:

    Storm the Capitol in insurrection — and walk away. Meanwhile, reporters are being arrested.

  29. RonStill4Hills says:

    Morning Joke just said they “Opened the fucking doors…”

    True.

    • Enheduanna says:

      What the hell??? The damage inside is horrifying. Just watched a report there are even cigarette butts lying around. Did they destroy any valuable art works? What about those “packages” they found? They literally could have blown the place up.

      So essentially, law enforcement can’t be trusted to protect America against Dump’s goons?

  30. RonStill4Hills says:

    The Repugs wanted to hold Hills and Obama criminally liable for not preventing the Benghazi riot on their watch. So what about this? Who should we lock up? The ones who solicited rioters on the internet? The ones who gave them marching orders down the block from the riot? I am not being hyperbolic. I want to see prosecutions.

    • NW Luna says:

      And Benghazi was in a foreign country. This is America. Throw the book at them and lock them up.

  31. NW Luna says:

    • Enheduanna says:

      He’s banned from Faceborg, Twitter and Instagram indefinitely. Too little too late IMO.

      He’s going to make the next two weeks even more of a living hell than the past four years.
