Democrats Exploiting Limited Capitol Disturbance to Crack Down on All Opposition

Nancy Pelosi and fellow travelers in politics and the media are about to prove that — as long as they control things — they’re not against “weapons of war on the street” at all. (House Speaker Nancy Pelosi/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste,” then-Congressman and soon to be Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel told assembled head honchos at a Wall Street Journal corporate CEO conference in 2008. Politicians have learned that lesson well, and the brains behind the Biden administration are proving no different in exploiting the so-called Capitol “riots.”

I used quotation marks there because the term appears situational and relative. Case in point,  Maxine Waters used the terms “rebellion” and “resistance” to qualify an “uprising” that resulted in “more than 50 killed, 2,000 injured, 9,500 arrests and $1 billion in property damages.” Those numbers could have been significantly reduced had political leaders used their influence to appeal for real justice and peace instead of pouring fuel on the flames for political gain:

“Waters’ mantra was ‘No Justice, No Peace.’ Over and over to any camera or microphone in sight, ‘No Justice, No Peace.’ Her message to the streets was unmistakable: ‘If it’s not a guilty verdict, go to war.  ‘No Justice, No Peace.’”

Naturally, she voted to impeach Donald Trump for supposedly conveying his expectation and blessing to the Capitol intrusion. That’s the crux of the case, that’s what the DSM (Duranty/Streicher Media) is trumpeting, and now, that’s what those trying to save their skins are latching on to.

“What’s really curious is the reality that our president, as a matter of public record, invited these individuals, as President, to walk down to the Capitol with him,” the attorney for “QAnon Shaman” Anthony Chansley maintained.

What’s even more curious is the reality that the president, as a matter of public record, did not invite protestors to do anything more than that, all perfectly legal and supposedly protected by the First Amendment.

It’s valid to put things in perspective.

“More than 116 people from around the country are now facing federal charges,” we are told. That’s out of an estimated 30,000 lawful and peaceable demonstrators.  In other words, those gathered in support of President Trump were (what did CNN call arsonists setting a building ablaze?) “mostly peaceful protestors.”

In other words, between 3/10 and 4/10 of one percent of the protestors let provocateurs goad them into believing that what Antifa and BLM routinely get away with is the new normal. And that has resulted in all “Republicans,” “conservatives” and gun owners being smeared as “violent right-wing extremists” and “the greatest threat” “our Democracy” faces, and, of course, the kiss of death designator, as racists.

Consider this Vanity Fair “report,” filed as “news,” not as an editorial:

“On the evening of January 5—the night before a white supremacist mob stormed Capitol Hill… “

Stop right there. The presumption is there is no need to prove or quantify such an outrageous libel. Just say those targeted for the purge are racists and it becomes so. It’s the way of the Big Lie.

Are there any questions on what the goals of those spreading it are? If so, reliable media narrative parrot MSN will be glad to clarify things for us:

“Capitol attack will spur broad crackdown on domestic extremists.”

Right on cue, “Joe Biden orders review of [the] US domestic extremism threat.” Democrat Adam Schiff explains the focus:

“In particular, far-right, white supremacist extremism, nurtured on online platforms, has become one of the most dangerous threats to our nation.”

You’ll note the National Guard troops aren’t mobilizing to liberate Portland or Seattle.

David, I was there and it wasn’t “30,000” peaceful demonstrators on January 6. It is difficult to estimate the exact number, but standing in front of the Ellipse, people stretched out as far as one could see. 100,000? More? I say this to emphasize the ratio of peaceful citizens protesting to the few who breached the capitol.

Illinois ‘ legislature just passed HB 3653 ,,and is awaiting the Governor’s signature …( it is 763 pages long ) and among many restrictions on law enforcement the new “Law” bans “law enforcement ” from any “military style ” equipment including .50 caliber weapons and armored vehicles ..But the National Guard ..of course has such weapons ..and are not trained like police officers to deal with the citizenry … So if the Governor signs the Bill …will he be able to call out the National Guard if there is a civil disturbance ?

The Feds will come for us next. Suggest a consensus on our own DEFCON Level. Given the new buzzword DVE, perhaps DEFCON-4. For now. See the CNN article. Find the link. [SNIP] Acting DHS Secretary David Pekoske issued the National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin “due to a heightened threat environment across the United States,” which DHS believes will persist in the weeks following the January 20 presidential inauguration. “Information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to… Read more »

Are we the DVE’s?

[SNIP]
Throughout 2020, Domestic Violent Extremists (DVEs) targeted individuals with opposing views engaged in First Amendment-protected, non-violent protest activity. DVEs motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and police use of force have plotted and on occasion carried out attacks against government facilities. 

Long-standing racial and ethnic tension—including opposition to immigration—has driven DVE attacks, …

Pelosi and her minions of Trump haters will keep as many of the military people in DC until after they try and pull off the big lie of impeachment and trial of our former president in the senate, the big goal they have which I think is unconstitutional is find Trump guilty so he can’t run for office again. Nancy is afraid of the people who will be very upset and would possibly go to DC to extract their revenge over another sham pulled on the public. We have a country that looks more like a banana republic, so much… Read more »

Those National Guardsmen with M4/M16s on city streets are why I’ll take a 300 Norma Magnum and 338 Norma Magnum and 1500-2000 meters stand off distance.

From what I have seen and read, the Capitol “invasion” was a setup. There are videos (which I have seen) showing Capitol police officers moving aside the barricades and then opening up the locked doors to the Capitol for the demonstrators to enter. Furthermore, there is evidence that those who were in the lead on entering the Capitol (in other words, those who led the way) were Antifa. So what does this all sound like to a thinking person? To me, it sounds like a prearranged excuse for the Left to implement martial law, shut down anyone who disagrees with… Read more »

One thing I have noticed about all the so called news reports about what happened in DC. When the National Guard was deployed to DC Pelosi requested crew served machine guns set up around DC. When someone wants that kind of fire power to use on civilians that tells me they are very very scared and afraid of all civilians that think differently than they do and will disagree to their policies. Remember that dead people can vote during an election but have no voice to disagree with asinine policies.

The article makes one thing absolutely clear. We no longer live in a Constitutional Republic. We live in an Oligarchy. The Federal Government combined with corporate interests and supported by a compliant media have made that so without a shot being fired. The answer must be from the bottom up: Just Say No.

We are now officially being ruled not governed. When we are under rule of one party. We are in a bad place. The record number of royal decrees proves that.
