Biden Admin Goes Full Drama Queen on Jan 6

Biden Admin Goes Full Drama Queen on Jan 6

If you remember last year about this time, there was a demonstration. A whole lot of people walked over to the Capitol building and they made a lot of noise.  Since the Democrats pulled all of the security from around the Capitol and refused to reinforce them, some people went inside.  As happens with demonstrations, some people broke a window. An incompetent police officer shot a person – as she was climbing in a window, apparently with no challenge.

Nobody else was killed because of it (some older conservatives apparently died of heart attacks), no footage that I have seen indicated that anyone in the Capitol building was ever in danger – although a lot of Democrats were hiding under desks. And I watched pretty much everything that was made public. A few people were assholes, but if that was a crime certain of my ‘fans’ would be in jail for life.

That’s it.

Now on the anniversary of this non-event, the Biden Administration is memorializing it like it was the combination of 9/11, a COVID outbreak and a massively fraudulent election!

The Democrats have spent the whole year pursuing the people who harmlessly entered the Capitol. I’ve heard many tales of basic rights trampled upon, people incarcerated for months without a trial, people sentenced to long terms on trumped up charges, and the FBI invading people’s privacy without warrants.

We saw various clips on the drive-by media, and somehow they convey nothing like the violence in the riots we saw in Portland, or even the violence of your average rock concert (Trump fans are a little bit older crowd). With the pervasiveness of cameras in today’s society, it seems they would have caught specific acts with a bit more conclusiveness.

But that is how dirty politics work. And here is the other side, the faux legit side.

These are some of the rather funny, certainly holier-than-thou remarks from the Biden Administration. Try not to shed a tear, or

Some quotes from Biden:

“watching it all on television and doing nothing” as police were assaulted and “the nation’s Capitol was under siege.”

“And I will allow no one to place a dagger at the throat of democracy.” (Like Biden is a REALLY fierce warrior, right?)

“…want to own this day of Jan. 6 so they can stoke fears and divide America. I say, let them have it because America sees through their lies and polarizations.” (as he spews lies and polarizations…)

“It is especially jaw-dropping to hear some Senate Democrats invoke the mob’s attempt to disrupt our country’s norms, rules and institutions as a justification to discard our norms, rules, and institutions themselves.”  (Like cheating in an election isn’t disrupting our country’s norms?)

Dramatic arts from VP Harris:

“We all saw what our nation would look like if the forces who seek to dismantle our democracy are successful. The lawlessness, the violence, the chaos.” (Did she not see the riots in Portland?)

“What the extremists who roamed these halls targeted was not only the lives of elected leaders. What they sought to degrade and destroy was not only a building, hallowed as it is. What they were assaulting were the institutions, the values, the ideals that generations of Americans have marched, picketed, and shed blood to establish and defend.” (Targeted??? Degrade and Destroy?? Who the hell is she talking about??)

“We cannot let our future be decided by those bent on silencing our voices, overturning our votes, and peddling lies and misinformation; by some radical faction that may be newly resurgent but whose roots run old and deep.” (Can’t stand hypocrites…)

“The violent assault that took place here, the very fact of how close we came to an election overturned — that reflects the fragility of democracy.”  (The only violence was against the crowd, not by the crowd)

Are you crying into your hanky yet? Can you believe the Democrats have this much imagination?

As an expert in propaganda, I think the point has been made. The true believers  believe even more that on January 6th, 2020 America was almost sucked into a hole.  Politicians on both sides have carefully decided to express their feigned outrage, just like they decided to not investigate an election rigged like the worst in the third world.  The proper messages are getting through.

And a few of us choose to sniff out the facts as they appear without the rhetoric, the second guessing of audience reaction or the chants of the Animal-Farm-like media.

And the strongest odor still smells like what I used to scrape back off the floor of the barn back in Kentucky.

    The Cline Institute categorized this as an “Auto Coup”., not a demonstration.

    Lol. Nice try.

    The former President LOST!!!!

    • Micala

      You mean BIDDYBOY BIDEN L O S T!! OF COURSE AMERICANS KNOW THAT! That ole Fart was just installed into office — NOT VOTED IN!

      This WILL BE RESOLVED SOON AND OUR NATION WILL BE DONE WITH THE “LOSERS” in D.C. that just keep digging our country deeper and deeper into a humongous hole!

      What the democrats are famous for doing is ignoring what reality is happening around them! THAT will be their undoing…and it is coming faster than you know! Don’t stand in the way— you’ll get hurt as those immature dem children come screaming out of the Capitol to hide — not from Patriots, but from their own selfish ignorant selves!

    Gee, Joe, I find it impossible to believe that you conclude that just “a whole lot of people” made a lot of noise” at the Capitol on 1.6.2021. You state that since the Democrats “pulled all the Security from around the Capitol,” you say the Democrats refused to reinforce and that’s the reason and THEREFORE, “some” people went inside.

    Ah — it’s the Democrats that forced them inside, made them turn violent, and ultimately forced them to wreck the place. You say the Democrats made them do it.

    And it was crowded so, of course, “some people broke a window.” A window? And you say there was an innocent person shot was just climbing in a window without a challenge even though she was at the door of the chamber….

    Do you have eyes or does partisan blindness rule? You can’t prove these lies. Your story does not jibe with any of the pictures. I see the Confederate Flag, a favored symbol of White Supremacy and later used to spear the police. I see a gallows with Mike Pence lynched in effigy as the crowd screams for the real thing. I see police being pummeled and crushed.. I hear violent threats against Pence, Pelosi, others.

    You are lying; impossible to be simply misled. Because I have no problem proving:

    It’s the largest criminal investigation in US history. Over 725 arrested so far, 300 more in the crosshairs, over 2,000 people may be charged. Hundreds broke into the Capitol. The FBI classifies this an act of domestic terrorism, Joe sees tourists gone bad. The FBI says: domestic terrorism. The terrorists were Trumpers; many have disowned Trump, a number have claimed in court, on the record, that they were misled through Republican-generated misinformation. They are mostly white, there is a fair percentage of military and police.

    Pence was taken away, apparently due to noise, to hide in the basement.

    Of the 725 arrested, 225 are charged with assault or resisting arrest; that’s not noise. Over 75 have dangerous/deadly weapons charges. 10 were charged with assaulting the press.

    Over 150 have already pleaded guilty, 31 have been jailed. Average prison time is 115 days with the violent ones getting 4-5 years.

    13% have ties to military or police — that is truly disheartening and a good reason to investigate these organizations for extremism.

    At least 119 have ties to known extremist organizations including QAnon, the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers, and the Three Percenters, a part of the anti-government militia movement.

    Over 140 police were injured, apparently by a lot of noise. We got brain damage due to noise. Crushed spinal disks due to tourism. Five people died, perhaps not of injuries during the fracas, but certainly the riot did not help.

    Over 1.5M in damages to the Capitol estimated.

    I have no problem with Biden’s speech; I do not think Trump will be suing for defamation even though he was portrayed in tough language. Tough but fair. Biden said: “And on this day of remembrance, we must make sure that such an attack never, never happens again.” You got a problem with that Joe?

    How about when Biden said: “Go back to that day. What do you see? Rioters rampaging, waving, for the first time inside this Capitol the Confederate flag that symbolizes the cause to destroy America, to rip us apart.

    Even during the Civil War that never, ever happened. But it happened here in 2021. What else do you see? The mob breaking windows, kicking in doors, breaching the Capitol. American flags on poles being used as weapons, as spears. Fire extinguishers being thrown at the heads of police officers. A crowd that professes their love for law enforcement assaulted those police officers. Dragged them, sprayed them, stomped on them. Over 140 police officers were injured.

    We all heard the police officers who were there that day testify to what happened. One officer called it, quote, ‘a medieval battle’ and said that he was more afraid that day than he was fighting the war in Iraq. They’ve repeatedly asked since that day, ‘How dare anyone, anyone, diminish, belittle or deny the hell they were put through, we saw with our own eyes?’ Rioters menaced these halls, threatening life of the speaker of the House, literally erecting gallows to hang the vice president of the United States of America.

    But what did we not see? We didn’t see a former president, who had just rallied the mob to attack, sitting in the private dining room of the Oval Office in the White House watching it all on television and doing nothing for hours as Police were assaulted, lives at risk, the nation’s Capitol under siege.

    He can’t accept he lost even though that’s what 93 United States senators, his own attorney general, his own vice president, governors and state officials in every battleground state have all said: He lost.

    That’s what 81 million of you did as you voted for a new way forward. He’s done what no president in American history, in the history of this country, has ever, ever done: He refused to accept the results of an election and the will of the American people.”

    Really Joe… see something not factual in all that? Cuz there’s more. It was brutal. It was honest. It was the truth. There was not even much spin.

    • Joe Gilbertson

      I interesting, you say that I’m lying, but you don’t present anything that indicates that I am lying.

      You merely repeat the statistics of the big show that happened afterwards, staged by the Democrats. You list “extremist” organizations that have never done anything extreme (except in liberal minds). You count off the liberal points of propaganda without any substance whatsoever.

      Bottom line this was the equivalent of a rock concert where someone (intentionally) skimped on security.

      You know, I watch the Avengers movies they an entertaining fantasy. What did you think? Did you try to find the Stark building in New York on Google maps?

      • Theodore Sueck

        You have your facts straight. Poor old Frank and Ben can’t seem to leave their crack pipe alone long enough to come up with any real facts. All they have is their lefts Bullshi* to spew on the uninformed masses.

        • frank stetson

          But yet Teddy can’t find a fact to disprove any of it; Teddy can find a fact to prove anything Joe said. All Teddy has is his acrimony and name calling, the tools of the weak debater. He can’t muster a cogent argument so he vents his spleen — it’s all he’s got.

      • frank stetson

        You say it’s “staged by Democrats.” I ask for proof, you respond that I have none. Then you attempt a diversion saying my proof it weak because all I showed were the statistics of what happened that day, what’s on the record in court, and you call that propaganda. Of course, this is deflection away from the fact you can not prove what you say, you are a liar in this. You seem to think you can say any lie and if someone pushes back, you’re proof is that their proof is weak. Uh…..answer the question: can you prove what you say? Do you have ANY evidence to back up your claims?

        You call it “the equivalent of a rock concert.” You are a liar purposeful misleading your readers with misinformation and mistruths, none of which you can prove, either because you are deluded, want to make a buck, or both. When was the last rock concert where they hung the Vice President in effigy and spent over four hours attacking police as they stormed the stage? Not even in Texas.

        You say it’s because “someone (intentionally) skimped on security.” Liar. Who? Because last I checked, only one guy is ultimately tasked with defense of our nation, only one here where the buck stops. And after sending his minions to the Capitol, he watched the events unfold from a dining room TV outside the oval office as Hannity, McCarthy and others called, tweeted, asked him to call it off. Not one said: “it’s like a rock concert out there.” I believe that an attack on the US Capitol falls under something considered worth defending in our nation and watching it unfold for hour after hour is a dereliction of duty, a breach of the oath of office.

        And then you attempt some humor about comic book characters to indicate I have the tin foil hat that is so firmly planted on your head.

        OK, let’s try some more facts:
        More than 140 police officers were injured. Does that sound like a lie, like a rock concert?
        Close to 200 people have been charged with assault. Is that a lie, is that a rock concert.

        Did the police sergeant lie when he said: “”What we were subjected to that day was like something from a medieval battle. We fought hand to hand, inch by inch, to prevent an invasion of the Capitol by a violent mob intent on subverting our democratic process.”

        Another police officer said: “”The objects thrown at us varied in size, shape and consistency, some were frozen cans and bottles, rebar from the construction, bricks, liquids, pepper spray, bear spray, sticks of various widths, pipes, bats, some were armed with guns and some had tasers or something similar. I specifically remember being sprayed with bear spray at least 6-8 times while tussling with rioters who were trying to use the bike racks against us as weapons.” Now, I have been in some rock concert scuffles, but even at Altamont, I have never seen this level of being armed at a rock concert.

        In the rock concert audience there were at least four Three Percenters militia members, close to 20 Oath Keepers, and over a dozen Proud Boys. This is a fact from court records. Must have been a very special band on stage that night. So, Joe, what facts are in your wallet, —– or just some more crickets, deflections and diversions?

        Show us how the Democrats are to blame? Quit throwing out lies and misinformation, and show us some evidence.

      • frank stetson

        But wait, there’s more. Let’s hear from the horses mouths, Joe’s friendly concert goers gone bad, the Trumpers, the domestic terrorists. That’s right, our first fact: the FBI calls this domestic terrorism, not a rock concert. Sorry Joe, you must have been mistaken. Or a purposeful liar with some agenda, political, pecuniary, or both. Let’s listen……

        One of the terrorists, Scott Kevin Fairlamb of New Jersey who pleaded guilty to assaulting on a police officer. Amazingly this guy lives in a NJ covid hotspot due to a heavy saturation of Trumpers not getting vaccinated. Go figure. Well, at the time of the rock concert gone bad, he grabbed an officer’s baton and screamed: “What patriots do? We fucking disarm them and then we storm the fucking Capitol!” That’s on tape Joe. In court, he got 3.5 years for his rock concert, not many concert goers pay that freight. He claims he was misled by Donald J. Trump and misinformation in The Epoch Times. Isn’t that your main source of information? Fairlamb said that “he had been duped by the social media that he had consumed prior to the riot and was deeply regretful for his conduct on January 6.” Duped Joe. Right-wing info sources Joe. Not Democrats Joe.

        Another rocket scientist who missed the concert due to truck trouble but got convicted because of death threats to Pelosi, illegal weapons, etc. said: “Thinking about heading over to Pelosi fucking’s speech and putting a bullet in her noggin on Live TV.” Earlier he had written: “I may wander over to the Mayor’s office and put a 5.56 in her skull.” Must be hard rock.

        Scott Palmer, also of NJ I think, pleaded guilty to assault said: “Trump supporters were lied to by those that at the time had great power meaning the sitting President, they kept spitting out the false narrative about a stolen election and how it was ‘our duty’ to stand up to tyranny.” Yes, it was a good show filled with fantasies…..but I am glad it is cleansing NJ of some of our finer citizens. So much for Blue State….

        One of the convicted perhaps summed it up: “I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I am truly remorseful and regretful for my actions, not because I face consequences but because of the damage that day’s incident caused and the way this country that I love has been hurt.”

        Joe, they know they were hurting the country, that ain’t no rock concert. They know that Trump sent them, that the right-wing misinformation media moguls sent them, that they were lied to, over and over, by people like Joe who tell lies that they just can’t support with facts.

        There’s a lot more Joe, a lot. And still more to come. So just let us know if you need a few more facts to get you to either stand and deliver some evidence that Democrats caused this or stfu and start telling the truth.

        Not one convicted criminal on that day has said “this is the Democrats fault.” That appears to be the fairy tale of those who stand outside the arena, those keyboard warriors of the internet, and the sheep that follow and accept these lies. Somehow there is more profit in this than just some political ideology. I would surmise, I admit I have not facts, but I would surmise Joe is making money from saying these things and that the people he is talking to don’t need further proof.

        Hey, Larry H; do you believe Joe on this one? If so, maybe you can lend him a few facts. Facts are our friends, afterall.

      • Joseph S. Bruder

        Wow, what total bullshit. “Just a peaceful protest that got out of hand”… After their initial reactions of horror and disgust and blaming Trump, this has been the fallback position of Republicans in Congress, AFTER Trump put the fear of God into them. Are you following the Conservative position or the GOP position?

        Trump started a good 6 months before the election telling people that Democrats were going to steal the election. He was sowing the seeds for his attempted coup because he knew way back that he was going to lose to Biden. The day he lost the election, he doubled down, made a whole bunch of false claims about stolen elections, and when he lost ALL of those challenges in the courts (all the way up to SCOTUS, including many of the judges he appointed), he and his lawyers and a handful of members of Congress thought up a way to get around the election. As Ari Melber said to Peter Navarro, “Do you realize you are describing a coup?”

        It was a coup attempt, by traitors to the US Constitution, plain and simple. They had fucking Powerpoints on how it was going to happen. They had a “war room” at the Willard and Trump hotels where the traitors met to plot their takeover. Trump spent months whipping up his followers to come to the Capitol while the votes were being counted to “Stop the Steal”. All of this out in the open, and all of it to subvert the results of a blowout election that Trump very clearly and obviously lost. Witnesses in the White House are testifying to Trump’s role, and how he watched the storming of the Capitol unfold when he could have stopped it.

        The bipartisan Committee on January 6th will lay out all of the details and refer it to the DOJ. Trump will be indicted, and most likely a handful of Reps and a couple of Senators. Trump “advisors” like Bannon, Meadows, Stone, Jones (and hopefully a few FOX “News” hosts) will get charged as well.

        Trump’s financial crimes will soon result in indictments too. Trump will die in prison, like the career criminal and traitor that he is.

  3. bob

    The Jan. 6th committee is nothing but a bunch of Liberal clowns running a circus !!! It’s nothing but ANOTHER political witch hunt or RUSSIA HOAX 2.0 . You won’t hear anything about Jan. 6th after the 2020 election from the GESTOPO of the democratic Party and all their little NAZIS because they want to use it for political purposes BEFORE the election . For Snake Harris and the rest of the inbred degenerate Socialist to compare Jan. 6th to Pearl Harbor or 9/11 is a DISGRACE !! The Veterans Administration is having a fit for the democrats to belittle what happened at Pearl Harbor which is what put us into WW11 . The vigil Perv Biden and all his puppets had at the Capital yesterday was a JOKE !!!! LETS GO BRANDON !!

    • Ben

      Bob, why you being such a pussy? Just say Fuck Joe Biden. It really doesn’t bother anyone. Honestly, if he was running against trump, I would have had serious reservations voting for him. Biden is far to conservative for my taste.
      So go ahead, grab your tiny cult balls, and just say Fuck Joe Biden, you pussy.

          That maybe so, but no man has ever said that to my face, so I guess I’ll never know.

  4. Ben

    I never thought I’d say this, but I agree with Ted Cruz when he said, “ it was a terrorist attack on our Capital.

    • Micala

      Yes, it was a Terrorist attack on our Capitol by Antifa and BLM dressed as Trump Supporters, paid by Speaker Pelosi to rampage our Capitol! THERE ARE YOUR TERRORISTS — groups who already have caused riots and demonstrations who know how to destroy buildings!! Pelosi chose smartly because she knew those individuals would make our Capitol a mess — and they did!

      What Pelosi didn’t expect was for anyone to die just standing there doing nothing!! I saw that video tape LIVE as Ashley Babbitt was shot dead by the Capitol Police! She wasn’t doing anything but standing and she was cut down like a hardened criminal!

      What Pelosi didn’t count on was her RABID ATTACK DOGS (bought and paid for) DID NOT LOOK LIKE ANY TRUMP SUPPORTERS AT ALL, but looked EXACTLY like her sloppily costumed ATTACK DOGS ANTIFA AND BLM — too young, running around like IMMATURE CHILDREN, laughing and having fun! Wouldn’t you be laughing if the Speaker of the House PAID YOU A NICE SUM TO DESTROY OUR CAPITOL?? Hell yes! Antifa and BLM have no allegiance to anyone — pay them $$ and they’ll attack anyone!

      I was watching ALL those first videos of the break in and when I saw a Black Dred headed young man and a sloppily dressed unkempt young blonde female both jump up and high five each other over a clump of destruction, I knew those supposed Trump supporters WERE NOT REAL BUT FAKERS DRESSED TO LOOK LIKE THEM!
      👉All of those FAKERS were the wrong age, the wrong race, and were sloppily dressed, NOT AT ALL LIKE A REAL TRUMP SUPPORTER!👈

      THE REAL INSTIGATOR OF THE JAN 6th BREAK IN WAS/IS SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO TRY TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP ONE MORE TIME — and she needed an event to blame on him so she could impeach him! THIS WHOLE EVENT WAS “ORCHESTRATED” by Nancy Pelosi for two powerful reasons:

      (1). Pelosi needed a nasty event that she could blame on DJT in order to try to impeach him again,

      THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE IS 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR THE JAN 6 Break In— 100% responsible — NO ONE ELSE, JUST HER! Why do you think SHE has been pushing all these INVESTIGATIONS? She is DEFLECTING HER GUILT FROM THAT BREAK IN FIASCO ON TO ALL TRUMP ASSOCIATES! They had ABSOLUTELY ZERO TO DO WITH THE BREAK IN, but Pelosi knows she overstepped and now is trying to cover up her HUGE ROLL IN THE BREAK IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE!!!

      So please understand that the one person 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BREAK IN IS


      • Ben


        I have a sneaking suspicion that you’re a Russian bot, but I’ll be your huckleberry.

        If and that’s a BIG IF, it was AntiFa, how come the former President called them very special people and cheered them on?

        Why did radical right politicians and fox propaganda network celebrities and his kids text trump’s chief of staff to beg trump to call off his cult as opposed to the head of AntiFa ?

        And finally, all Ashley Babbitt had to do was comply…. Isn’t that what all you boot lockers say when the cops shoot an unarmed black man?

        • Joe Gilbertson

          Ashley Babbitt was not given a chance to comply, she was shot without warning. Name me one on those famous cases where the perp wasn’t given warning first, or the perp didn’t shoot first.

          • frank stetson

            DOJ acknowledge there’s not enough evidence to pursue charges against the officer. Most experts agree. Joe, if you have the evidence, here’s your chance to step up, do the right thing, and show them the money. Otherwise, history seems to disagree with you.

            Babbitt was shot, not going through a window as Joe stated, but as she climbed through a broken window in the main door into the hallway in front of the Speaker’s Chamber where members of Congress from both sides were sheltering with no where else to go. Members were seen in that hallway shortly before Babbitt was shot and killed.

            Babbitt was far from perfect. She assaulted the live-in girlfriend of the man she was having an extramarital affair with. She rammed her car three times with her SUV, got out, pounded on the glass challenging her to fight where Babbitt would “beat her ass” Remember, Babbitt’s the one having the affair.

            She had spent her time before her terrorist attack putting all sorts of violent screeds up on the web, profane and violent in nature, mostly naming prominent Democrats. She even noted that Trump secretly battles deep-state Democratic enemies including that cabal of Satan-worshiping cannibals, some operating a child sex trafficking ring.

            On January 5th, Babbitt tweets: ““Nothing will stop us. They can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours….dark to light!” You know what the storm is Joe, don’t you?

            She was being sued by her bank having stopped loan payments days after taking the money. Her pool supply store proudly stated it was a mask-free autonomous zone where we shake hands like men and bump fists like homies. And she wonders why business fell off in San Diego. Ask the Pillow Guy, his $89 pillow is now $29 as he begs for money even on MSNBC.

            “Nothing will stop us,” she wrote on Twitter the day before her death. “They can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours …. dark to light!”

            OK, so Babbitt does not exactly fit with our concept of a patriot, is she martyr material. According to Joe, since she was not warned, yes. But that’s not what people on the seen say. From The Intercept: “The officer’s statement matches the account of a fellow member of the pro-Trump mob, Thomas Baranyi, who caught Babbitt as she fell back. Baranyi, who still had Babbitt’s blood on his hand when he spoke to a local news crew outside the Capitol minutes later, said that “a number of police and Secret Service were saying, ‘Get back, get down, get out of the way.’ She didn’t heed the call.”

            The Intercept further notes: “Further evidence that Byrd’s warning was clear to those around Babbitt comes from graphic video of the shooting posted on Twitter less than 40 minutes after the event by another witness. Those images clearly show that Baranyi, who was wearing a backward blue Trump cap and standing close to Babbitt, raised his hand and nodded in Byrd’s direction to signal his compliance with the command to stay back. Three seconds later, Babbitt climbed into the window to cross the barricade and was shot.”

            Here’s that tape:

          • Joseph S. Bruder

            If you look at the video, the officer is standing there with a gun pointed at the door while insurrectionists are trying to break the glass. There were members of Congress being evacuated at the other end of the hall. As soon as a hole opened on top, she climbed over the backs of others to get through the hole. If she had gotten through, that lone officer would have been overrun.

            Now, I ask you, is an officer pointing a gun at you NOT a warning? I don’t know if any of the videos have audio of him shouting anything… but she’s breaking into a secure area of the Capitol building, through a window that he fellow traitors have just broken. How much warning should she have gotten, and how much time did the officer have to protect the members of Congress? Do you think she would have gotten that far trying to breach the White House?

            She was a traitor, convinced to overrun the Capitol by a lying President. Trump’s actions killed Ashley Babbit. He may has well have pulled the trigger. Instead, he wound up a bunch of toy soldiers and aimed them at the Capitol knowing full well that they were going to get broken. Trump has as little regard for people as a kid playing with toys.

          • Joseph S. Bruder

            First one to come to mind was the cop that jumped out of his car and within 3 seconds shot a 12 year old playing on a swingset with a plastic gun. Now warning there…

            Second one would be George Floyd, who had a knee on his neck for 9 minutes until he was dead. No chance for him to comply to instructions there either.

          • Ben

            Joe, she passed the outside gates ( warning 1)
            She entered the building (warning 2)
            She entered an obviously barricaded pinch point ( warning 3)

            How many warnings did she need ?

            I’ll go with the Castle doctrine, she was trespassing in the people’s, house. As you radical right gun nuts like to say, “ shoot fist, ask questions later. “

      Wait until next time. Y’all ain’t seen nothing yet

      • Ben

        Noah, I’m pretty excited to see another 1,000 radical right winged cult members get locked up

      • frank stetson

        Really, so what are we gonna see next time? How will you up your ante, improve your game?

        You got noah to say?

    Nice audience Joe, bunch of reality seekers. did you provide the tin foil hats? They all believe your lies and put a bunch of even better ones right on top. No, this wasn’t Pearl Harbor or 9/11 —-> this was domestic terrorism incited by Trump for months in advance with Trump election lies, believed by useful-idiot Trumpers like Joe, Micala, and Bob – well never mind Bob, he just spewed a bunch of childish names, nothing to prove in that useless tirade. He got nothing to prove, much to apologize for, I leave to him and his maker.

    You all spewed a lot of stuff: got any proof whatsoever? Come on, show us a fact. We’ll even accept Fox or Epoch Times as a source. Especially Micala who says it was all antifa and blm dressed up like Trumpers after being paid by Pelosi. What do you get for a job that gives you five years? How a blm-er pulls that costume off I don’t know. She’s got one in dreadlocks, can’t wait to see that picture. Wanna bet she can’t find it again….. What sports these blm-ers and antifa-ers are; they are taking up to 5 years in jail without a peep. They continue to cry how Trump and Republicans like Joe misled them all the way to jail. Way to take one for the Democratic team. Pelosi appreciates your pause for the cause.

    I mean all I have is convictions and real people blaming Donald J. Trump and Republicans, like Joe, of misleading them with misinformation that they no longer believe and please, please, don’t give me too much time, Judge please……

    So kids, once again on a Joe-thread we wait anxiously for the facts:

    Joe to prove how Democrats are to blame here. You can’t just say it, you really need to show us. I mean all we got is videos, pictures, pre-planning documents, court testimony, convictions and that kind a wishy-washy stuff. Show us the money Joe, here’s dollar, but a clue….. If Joe can show us how all of 1.6.2021 is the Democrats fault —- with facts, not false allegations, I will stop posting. How’s that for incentive for you to do what you do so well —- show us the beef.

    Micala just has to show us the blm-ers or antifa-ers dressed as Trumpers…. especially the blm-ers. (Probably the ones who had to sit at the back of the riot). Micala, did the Shaman start this years ago given he’s been right wing-nutting in for a decade. I mean a large percentage of them joined The Proud Boys, Q, etc. and fooled them for years apparently. How did they fool Trump at the rally, can’t he spot a Democrat a mile away?

    By the by Joe, still waiting for your actual factual evidence on how the 2020 election was rigged, how Trump won, and you got the proof cuz you told us so. Not a web site, not a discredited, $1.3B defamation lawsuit-ed Pillow Man. But an actual fact. Just one. Even a little one.

    Talk, talk, talk, Elephant talk. But can they walk the walk. Not these three. They can’t back up what they say. They can’t prove it. Amazing how Joe can bring the tin-foil hats out of the closet. Then again, it’s “let me point you in the right direction and you find it” Joe. That’s how confident of his facts he is; he just can’t remember where he put them.

    • Joe Gilbertson

      You do ramble a lot. Reality seekers? You are as far from reality as it gets. And I already provided you the evidence.

      • frank stetson

        No, you have not provided evidence that the Democrats are to blame for the domestic terrorist attack on the US Capitol to stop the election of 2020.

        Nor have you shown any evidence of voter fraud during said election.

        You whine, you deflect, you blame the fault on my rambling, my lack of disproving you, but you do not stand and deliver one shred of actual evidence. You are a liar, based on your own words and lack of supporting evidence.

    You know shit has gone horribly sideways when Dick Chaney, the mastermind of the murder of hundreds of thousands of middle Eastern people, is the voice of reason for the GOP.

    • frank stetson

      Yeah, I never thought I would see the day when I respect the Cheney’s more than almost every other Republican that has either turned full Trumper like sycophant Joe here or nose-holding Republican like Larry who holds his nose, objects to a few things, but votes for Trump cuz he loves the policies. Not many Real Republicans any more so even the Cheney’s seem like a breadth of fresh air.

  7. Ben

    We know it was trump’s coup because it failed.

    • frank stetson

      Unfortunately as Bill Maher noted: first they came at The WTC in vans. the next time they came in planes…..

      This time the ringmaster sent in the clowns and they will be dealt with. It’s the next time we need to focus on.

      Let’s Go Big Bird.

  8. AC

    Hey, PBP which of your esteemed pontificators will next post some lamb excuse for the entire Republican contingent save one elected against showing up on the 6th? They were no shows because sheep do as they are lead. They are following the former big guy’s orders fearing reprisal for acting responsibly honoring their oath of office.
    Republicans are running after a headless horseman who will not admit he is headless.
    In 2016 he came up short in the popular vote but made it on a technicality. The Democrats had reason at that time of the wanted to dispute the Electoral College result. It came as a surprise for Trump that he won the Party’s nomination in the first place. These second time around the ballot box he lost the popular vote again. The Electoral College he thought was his way to win again. He just had to convince his most rapid supporters the election was stolen. The patriotic thing to do is steal it back. So, there it is, January 6 was D-day and the Capital Building was ground-0. It all happened on Trump’s watch. In Republican Trump World he is the supreme righteous dude and untouchable.
    The situation reeks of stupidity without equal in American democracy. Sanity held about 48 hours while Republican memories were fresh. Then Republicans’ memory collectively went south and ridiculousness ensued as one after another fell under Trump’s mind numbing spell. The first were those known for flipping consciences. Even a few who spoke against Trump before 2014.
    We know the culprits enabling Trump and rubber stamping his autocratic demands for loyalty.
    At what cost is such loyalty when the promised reward is not his to give, nor are any possible.
    Promises made by him are like his pardons, accepting either amounts to a confession of guilt.
    Whether Republicans are like imagine kids cutting the principal’s assembly after an incident on campus or irresponsible adults avoiding just consequences due them.
    Their sin is one of omission following through the past year after the sin of rampant commission
    Their commission is misinforming and propagandizing on Trump’s behalf the past year and 4 years prior. Their sins of omission are not showing up and not owning up.
    Democrats, are the assumed villainous communist nazi, socialist, fascist pack, in Republican nomenclature. The facts do not support Republican accusations. Both parties have less than stellar records, but neither do we the people held our end of the.bargain
    Republicans’ no show can not be allowable as an excepted demonstration for disapproval.
    Is it any wonder the.that creativity is seen lacking and legislation not appearing in answer to calls for action.
    Lincoln did famously speak on disunity. A house divided can not stand is a truism. As is truth found in actual unity is strength. Americans have been weakened by their self inflicted wounds.
    We will survive only after all own up and heal binding each-others wounds.

    Expected from PBP in reply is silence and from others ridicule. And there ……

    • Joseph S. Bruder

      I would disagree, at least partly, that these are self-inflicted wounds. Trump was encouraged, financed, and supported by the Russians. Whether he knew it or not, Putin used Trump. Putin knew that Trump was all about chaos and instability, and that Trump would always put his own interests first, which is the very definition of an oligarchy. I would put the blame about 50/50 – half to Putin, and half to the industrialists, racists, and religious zealots who thought they could manipulate Trump to do their bidding.

  9. Joseph S. Bruder

    Off topic:

    Here’s an interesting article from Daily KOS, about the differences between liberalism and conservatism. The article is a reaction to an article talking about the direction of the conservative alt-right movement.

    What’s even more interesting is the level of discourse and diversity of opinions. There’s no insulting of other writers, no cursing, no all caps rants. It makes the columns of Horist and Gilbertson look like they were written by 8th graders.

      • frank stetson

        Joe, you have yet to provide factual evidence that the Democrats are to blame for the domestic terrorist attack on the US Capitol to stop the election of 2020. Nor have you shown evidence of rampant voter fraud during said election.

        Now turd is a word, a word you seem to be in love with But on the facts, you whine, you deflect, you blame the fault on ramblings, that others have not disproved you so it must be true. The closet you come to evidence is when you say: “And I already provided you the evidence,” which you haven’t, that’s a lie. You seem unable to stand and deliver support on your sewage spewage.


        This act of domestic terrorism was caused by Trumpers, many of who, in open court, on the record, under oath, blame Donald J. Trump for inciting the riot of the tourists and there is NO EVIDENCE of rampant voter fraud in the 2020 election as shown by the recounts, the courts, and even many leading Republicans. As shown, with sources, here, many times.

  10. Ben

    It just occurred to me, that you called Biden a Drama Queen without a hint of irony.
    Your President has been whining since the day he announced his candidacy about how unfair everyone is being to him. About how the world conspired against him. Calling people nasty and all kinds of childish nick names.
    Biden speaks the truth and you get your panties in a bunch.

  11. frank stetson

    Sedition, sedition……Stewart Rhodes, Oath Keepers militia leader was arrested on today, charged with seditious conspiracy for his plot to storm the Capitol on January 6th.

    And here we go…….

    Not to worry, chances of tagging Trump or anyone else of import is slim.

    Sure ain’t no fuckin tourist though.
