I have great faith in the FBI but I have this feeling they are behind the curve on

this. I mean, I hope they didn't learn about this from the Friday Twitter press release, which seemed to be the first that most news organizations learned about this.

Those of us who read a lot of journalism and watch the #OSINT on Twitter seem to know when these things are coming. I usually hate those posts that say, "Who is surprised by this?" but honestly, this is a bit ridiculous since the domestic terrorists have been explicit and crystal clear in their intentions with respect to threats, locations and dates.

I bet the Southern Poverty Law Center could have told them all of this.

Sorry, this is just the way I strongly feel right now. No disrespect to the FBI (I'm an avid fan, especially of the BSU)

And not just here.

He scored successes, with some help, in Hungary, the UK (Brexit/UKIP) and has supported the dismantling of democracies in Poland, Italy (attempted), Spain (attempt underway) and, Anne Applebaum claims, in Brazil. All the NATO hate is a Russian export, too, as well as the distrust of the EU. He also assists the Christian Nationalists with their agenda to reject Western democracy and replace it with a "Christian State."

The internet is much cheaper than nuclear weapons.

I think it will turn out to be mostly House Reps...

...like my scumbag of a congressman.

Seize the phones of all arrested protesters and see who sent them directions, sketches or schematics of the offices. How the f*ck did they know how to find Clyburn's office, and some of the other hard-to-find offices?

Haha. Can you believe it? We've got a Supreme Court Justice who

has a conflict of interest over cases involving overthrowing our government?

Unbelievable times, my dearest DU friends.

There is circumstantial evidence, everywhere now, that this insurrection

was seeded at the highest levels of state and federal government.

We need a 9/11 Commission style deep dive into this travesty.

If we don't punish this to the extreme, we are suicidally stupid.

Disgusting people. Here's an article about Susan Block being driven to resign from a board:

Ohio Arts Council board member Susan Allan Block resigns after inflammatory comments''

Ohio Arts Council board member Susan Allan Block resigned Friday after social media comments surfaced in which she referred to the vice president-elect Kamala Harris as a "whore" and called for "no peace" during the U.S. Capitol riots on Wednesday.

DeWine announced Block's resignation early Friday afternoon without further comment. On Thursday, his spokeswoman had denounced the comments.

Block, of Toledo, was first appointed to the unpaid council, which allocates state and federal money to Ohio artists and arts organizations, in 2016 by then-Gov. John Kasich. She was reappointed by DeWine in July 2019 for a term that expires in 2024. DeWine, a Republican, supported Trump's re-election.

Ohio artists, art organizations and museums called for Block's resignation or removal.

"For all we know, it was filled with cans of spray paint."

My brother in law was a cop, and in a situation like that they don't have time to play guessing games. Especially if your verbal commands are ignored and that person is moving in your direction.

But it's good to ask questions. I don't see anything wrong with what you're asking. I have questions too.

What people are/were saying is that she suddenly came through a

broken window with a duffel bag, surprising the officers (who had no idea what her intentions were or what the duffel bag was), but I'm not sure now because I've heard different stories. I've subsequently heard they repeatedly issued verbal warnings which were ignored.

It happens very fast. Not that you'd want to see it but if you do there's video floating around. You can see how hard it is to tell what happens at the very beginning of the incident.


Yeah, I admit I got this one dead wrong.

The more I read about her, the less sympathy I have for her.

Also, some of the eyewitness reports circulating earlier in the day were not completely correct.

She wasn't an innocent "girl" shoved through the broken window with a duffel bag. She was about 34 years old and she was there because she wanted to be and was all in for Trump, and an obnoxious scumbag with a rap sheet.

Same here. I really got this one wrong.

The more I learn about her, any shred of sympathy I had vanished.

The first two eye witness statements I read turned out to be wrong (or at least not the complete story).

But I never thought the shooting was unjustified. What were the police supposed to do?
