The three fired Capitol security officials seem to be full of shit on no intellegence...

They claimed that they had not called in the national guard before hand because they had no intelligence before hand that it was that big of threat. Of course the FBI warning email from the evening before seemed to have disappeared into the either.

BUT their own capitol police intellegence group issued a 12 PAGE warning THREE days before with a hair on fire report.

This does not add up.

How is this not Seditious Conspiracy?

Axios described a 4 hour screaming meeting with Trump in the White house in late December to use the military to seize power.

This sure seems like a conspiracy to overthrow the government and install Trump as president for life.

CNN reporter at Trump Screen door to the ass Rally, "House of the Rising Sun" playing

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain
Well, there is a house in New Orleans

They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

Fitting I suppose.

Off duty cops and military in the mob tried to get in by "flashing their IDs"!!

Meanwhile, a current Metro D.C. police officer on the scene yesterday said in a public Facebook post that off-duty police officers and members of the military, who were among the rioters, flashed their badges and I.D. cards as they attempted to overrun the Capitol.

I VOTED in OHIO in-person TODAY! Blue wave coming!

Early In-Person voting in Ohio began TODAY.
I voted a few minutes after the polls opened at my rural county Board Of Elections office. There were only about 10 or 15 people in line spaced out at 6 feet. We now vote on fill in the dot paper ballots that we then feed into an electronic scanner. (Much better than the Diebold touch screens.)

I voted straight Democratic, and did not even vote for a Republican when they were un-opposed like our sheriff and coroner.

I wore my N-95 mask, and everyone there was wearing a mask. Certainly no worse and actually much better than the grocery store.

As a great man one said : "Don't Boo, VOTE!"

Trump's infection was SELF INFLICTED!

He has gone to great lengths to do and encourage his followers to do the EXACT OPPOSITE of what the infectious disease professionals have said to do.
Everyone wears a mask
and social distancing.

Trump has been pushing groups of tightly packed people and mocked anyone wearing a mask. A single infected person (even without symptoms) could be spewing billions of virus particles into the air with ever breath. Trump is on tape as knowing this months ago. But he has insisted on having these super spreader in person events over and over.

Well, it has finally caught up with him. Now his family, white house staff and advisers and several US senators all have tested positive for this virus as well as Trump himself. With the best medical care in the world (literally) he will probably recover, but he still has a 1 in 10 chance of dying from this.

The United States has the largest number of infections and the largest number of deaths per population of any industrialized country in the world by a wide margin. Much if not most of this is due to Trump's mis-information and mis-leading his followers to NOT do the simple things needed to get this pandemic down to a manageable level like so many other countries have been able to do.

Make no mistake about it. Trump had done this to himself, and he has made this worse for ALL of us.
