DOMESTIC TERRORISM


January 6th — Rioters Break Windows, Doors, Steal, Destroy And Breach US Capitol   Watching pro-T-RUMP idiots. morons, scumbags, murderers, and rioters storm and ultimately overtake the US Capitol on Wednesday, my overwhelming emotion was anger and sadness.  Now it’s revenge , this was an attack on every Americans House and Freedom and cannot be washed under the table as the Reptilians suggest.  They are not Republicans anymore they are Reptiles, a lower form of animal.

The thought they could make a difference but are not aware they were being used by far-right activists and they truly want to make a difference — but it got out of hand by believers manipulated by activists and money and support by a select group of founders and people duped into complicity.

Four hundred have been identified. So far and some top names have been disclosed some arrested.  You may not agree with their beliefs or the way they vote on a particular issue but, you do not tear down the house of this nation.

To see our representatives those people voted into off and the reporters who cover them day in and day out — being forced to shelter in place in their workplace as lawless frickin idiots and morons egged on by a President interested solely in preserving his own self-image as a “winner” commandeered the Capitol was heartbreaking.  He should be shot, hanged or at least charged with murder, six have since died now with another suicide seven.


FBI Is Examining Communications Between Us Lawmakers And  Capitol Rioters Federal investigators are examining records of communications between members of Congress and the pro-T-RUMP mob that attacked the US Capitol, as the investigation moves closer to exploring whether lawmakers wittingly or unwittingly helped the insurrectionists, according to a US official briefed on the matter.

The data gathered so far includes indications of contact with lawmakers in the days around January 6, as well as communications between alleged rioters discussing their associations with members of Congress, the official said.

The existence of such communications doesn't necessarily indicate wrongdoing by lawmakers and investigators aren't yet targeting members of Congress in the investigation, the official noted. Should investigators find probable cause that lawmakers or their staffs possibly aided the insurrectionists, they could seek warrants to obtain the content of the communications. There’s no indication they've taken such a step at this point.


Washington (CNN)   The Justice Department is facing a tougher climb as it argues Capitol riot defendants should stay in jail — with federal judges pressing prosecutors to explain possible inconsistencies in their arguments in some of the most high-profile cases related to the insurrection this week. 

The apparent calculus prosecutors are using to determine whether they ask for jail time came to a head twice in court Tuesday, as they argued for the detention of a member of the pro-Trump extremist group the Proud Boys who carried an axe handle wrapped in a flag, and for an alleged conspirator among the paramilitary group the Oath Keepers who was suited up in armor at the riot and had said she was leading a group in response to the President's and others' signals. 

Federal judges have landed all over the map in their decisions to keep alleged Capitol rioters detained, with many judges rejecting the Justice Department's initial requests to keep defendants in jail pending trial, and several appeals ongoing. 


A New T-Rump Loyalist ‘Party’ Makes Room For The Proud Boys —  
As the cases unfurl and count into the hundreds, the Justice Department is developing some patterns outside the obvious arguments for keeping a defendant in jail before trial.  For defendants that could go either way based on their charges and criminal history alone, prosecutors have tried to push threats related to weapons they may have carried and actions they took after January 6 in making the cases for detention. 

In the Proud Boy case on Tuesday, Judge Beryl Howell in Washington, DC, pressed prosecutors to explain why one of more than a dozen Capitol riot defendants affiliated with the group should stay in jail, when the Justice Department previously took no issue with the release of other Proud Boys leaders who were arrested. 

Howell, considering whether to keep Kansas City-area Proud Boy William Chrestman detained, asked about the release of Proud Boys Hawaii leader Nicholas Ochs, who allegedly organized support before January 6 then etched the words "murder the media" on a door in the Capitol alongside his co-defendant Nicholas DeCarlo, who was also released after his arrest. 

Howell also asked about comparing Chrestman to Proud Boys leader, Enrique Tarrio, who was charged in local court before January 6 for destroying a Black Lives Matter flag in Washington, DC, and illegal ammunition position. Ochs, DeCarlo and Tarrio have pleaded not guilty, and Chrestman's case -- a conspiracy case linked to several other associates of the Proud Boys -- is still in an early stage. 


This Is What We Learned From Capitol Riot Hearing —  "Is it all because of the axe handle the defendant (Chrestman) was carrying into the Capitol?" the judge asked about Chrestman on Tuesday. Prosecutors explained Chrestman was more of a danger than the other Proud Boy rioters because they say he had carried the weapon into the Capitol. 

Howell would agree. "He wasn't coming to stroll around the reflecting pool, looking at the monuments. He was coming with a gas mask ... an axe handle. There was some preplanning there," Howell said, ordering Chrestman to stay in jail pending trial. 

She also noted Chrestman hadn't expressed any remorse, hadn't disavowed the Proud Boys and hadn't conceded the legitimacy of President Joe Biden's election. His attorneys had argued he wasn't dangerous after January 6. 

Howell has reacted strongly in recent weeks to the actions of the rioters in several cases where the Justice Department has argued to keep them in jail, often siding with prosecutors. 

But that's not how all judges have handled the arguments and legal questions over which defendants should stayed detained. 

Oath Keepers — Planned And Involved White Supremacists — In a separate hearing on Tuesday afternoon in the same Washington courthouse, the Justice Department faced a tougher reception as it tried to keep alleged Oath Keeper Jessica Watkins in jail. 

"These are issues that are going to affect not only Ms. Watkins but dozens and dozens of people who are coming through the pipeline," Judge Amit Mehta said.   Watkins has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and other charges related to January 6, and her attorney has said she was not violent that day. But the Department of Justice has shared her text messages and statements she made to argue she relished the insurrection and remained indignant afterward. 

They say she discussed wanting to go "underground" if Biden were elected, and texted that a news reporter's coverage of the Oath Keepers should prompt the group to "sue harder. Class action style.

The Oath Keeper now says she didn’t meet with Secret Service around the January 6 rally  —  “It's not clear to me ... what the government is relying on" to make the case for detention, Mehta said at Watkins' hearing on Tuesday. He did not make a decision on whether she must stay in jail, pushing additional arguments to Friday. Watkins remains detained until at least then. 

The prosecutors had tried in Watkins' case -- unlike almost any other Capitol riot case -- to claim her charges related to pre-planning and intimidating the Congress amounted to a crime of terrorism that merits her staying in jail. They also argued she could abscond.   "She turned herself in. I just have a hard time finding that it rises to a level of a serious risk of flight,” Mehta responded.

Judges Are Overturning Rulings As Well —  In two other cases this week, the Justice Department lost one argument and won another on whether to keep Capitol rioters detained -- both of which involved overturning rulings from previous judges, again showing how much the Capitol prosecutions have varied. 

Doug Jensen of Iowa, who was caught on video chasing a Capitol Police officer near the entry to the Senate, will stay in jail, Judge Timothy Kelly decided at a hearing on Tuesday.  Kelly said there was no indication Jenson's "interest in revolution" had gone away following the insurrection. Kelly also pointed to Jensen's previous criminal convictions, including a domestic assault charge. 

Kelly's decision overturned a ruling by a lower court judge in Iowa to release him. Jensen's attorneys hadn't fought for his release once his case moved to DC and he was indicted. He has pleaded not guilty.  

In the other case -- of Texas winery owner Christopher Grider, who allegedly told his wife to "get rid of his Trump things" after the riot -- Judge Kentaji Brown Jackson decided he should be released. Grider's defense attorneys had argued he had been a "passive bystander" in the insurrection. He has pleaded not guilty.  Really?

Still, Jackson condemned his actions.  "If there is a more serious offense against who we are as a society and the rules that are at the core of our democratic process, then I don't know what it is," Jackson said at a hearing Monday. 

Jackson noted it was the "closest call" on detention she'd had among the cases, after the Justice Department did not offer any new argument and failed to meet the legal threshold to keep Grider in jail that other DC federal judges were requiring. Her decision overturned a ruling by a lower court judge in Texas to keep him detained. 

How Many Have Been Charged?  —  Boogaloo Boys Fronted A Lot  —  So far, federal prosecutors have charged at least 205 people for their alleged roles in the riot and opened up over 400 more  investigations into possible criminals. Importantly was the work of the T-RUMP Gestapo the Proud Boys and the Boogaloo.

☛ THE MORONS OF BOOGALOO —  Subleski and Turner, leaders of the movement behind recent violent attacks  Acting US Attorney Michael A. Bennett said in the statement, “  I commend the outstanding work of the Louisville FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) and our state and local law enforcement task force member agencies who identify  locate, and apprehend for prosecution individuals who jeopardize the peace and safety of the citizens of the Western District of Kentucky,”

☛  Both Subleski and Turner are set to attend separate preliminary and detention hearings on Feb. 17.  If convicted, each could face a maximum of five years in prison, a $250,000 fine and a three-year term of supervised release, the DOJ said.   On Jan. 6 — the day a violent crowd of former President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the US Capitol — members of the Boogaloo - affiliated group  the United Pharaoh’s Guard allegedly joined Subleski (who is a member of the group, according to the complaint) in Louisville and pointed rifles at drivers, blocked intersections and barricaded roads.   Subleski was also captured on video firing his rifle at a vehicle that went through one of his group's barricades.

 Turner -- who also identifies as a member of the UPG and the "Boogaloo Bois," according to the complaint -- was separately charged with participating in a protest caravan on Christmas Day 2020 that confronted police officers in St. Matthews, Kentucky. He was arrested for openly carrying an AR-pistol and charged with menacing and resisting arrest.  He later made threats to police officers on social media, according to the DOJ’s statement.

FBI MOST WANTED PICTURES -  NOT IN CUSTODY YET — The list below is the most wanted section of the FBI investigation and there is no time limit on their arrest and charges pending after investigation. Some were armed and indicated might be dangerous or they would not have made the list.  These folks are not patriots, they are traitors to the democracy of our country.

The FBI is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying individuals who made unlawful entry into the DC Capitol building and committed various other alleged criminal violations, such as destruction of property, assaulting law enforcement personnel, targeting members of the media for assault, and other unlawful conduct, on January 6, 2021, in Washington, DC.

PIPE BOMBS IN D.C. — A reward of up to $100,000 is available for information leading to the location, arrest, and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the placement of pipe bombs in Washington, DC on January 5, 2021.

  Common Charges  — The FBI told CBS News on Thursday that the people who have been arrested for assault on law enforcement officers, are subject to crime chrages with penalties ranging from one to 20 years, depending on the circumstances of the assault.
While many of the alleged rioters were initially charged with minor crimes such as misdemeanor trespassing, prosecutors have continued to add serious felony charges to those cases as evidence became available. Sherwin said that “almost all" of the cases federal prosecutors have charged involved "significant federal felonies" with potential sentences ranging from five to 20 years.

  Veterans and Army Reserves —  At least 16 of those arrested are veterans and two are currently serving in the Army Reserve, according to military service records and court documents obtained by CBS News.  Of the 18, eight have served in the U.S. Marines, seven served in the Army, two served in the Navy and one served in the Air Force.

  Where Did They Come From?  —  The alleged rioters come from at least 40 states outside of Washington, D.C. Among those arrested whose home states were known, the most were from Texas 22, New York 14, Florida 14,  Pennsylvania 13,  California 11, New Jersey 9, and Virginia 9.

 How Many Have Worked In Law Enforcement?  —  At least four people worked as law enforcement officers at the time they allegedly took part in the riot, and all have since been fired or resigned. Additionally, a firefighter from Florida was also arrested for his participation in the riot.

 How many have extremist affiliations?  —  Authorities have connected at least 25 alleged rioters to extremist groups, including the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Three Percenters, Texas Freedom Force and the conspiracy group QAnon. 

 How many were women?  —  While those arrested in the January 6 mob were mostly men, at least 24 women have been arrested for their alleged participation. 

 How old were those arrested?  —  Among the 61 defendants whose ages are known, the average age was 42. The youngest-known alleged rioter is 20-year-old Emanuel Jackson, a Maryland man who prosecutors say hit police officers with a bat. The oldest was 70-year-old Lonnie Coffman, an Alabama man who authorities say brought a car full of weapons and explosives to Washington, DC, let the old bastard rot in jail

 How many were released? At least 81 people have been sent home after posting bail or agreeing to supervised release.

☛  How much evidence exists?   Federal law enforcement has issued more than 500 grand jury subpoenas and search warrants, and the FBI has fielded more than 200,000 digital media tips from people hoping to share evidence of the riot.

 Recent updates on notable cases  —  Prosecutors arrested a woman suspected to be the “ Bullhorn lady,”  who was seen instructing rioters where to go in the Capitol.  On January 29, federal prosecutors indicted two New York members of the Proud Boys after they say the men conspired to impede law enforcement.  The FBI increased the reward offered for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons who left pipe bombs in Washington on January 6 to 100,000 dollars.

 What happens next?  —  Sherwin said in January that the swift rate of arrests will soon begin to plateau as prosecutors move away from charging the easily identifiable "internet stars" who appeared in photos and on social media and begin to build more complicated conspiracy cases related to militia groups' coordination during the attack.

☛ T-RUMP Acts Of Sedition — When members of Congress have to fear for their well-being simply for doing their constitutional duty, we are in a very bad place.  When lawlessness is normalized by a President who tells people occupying the Capitol that he loves them, we are in a very bad place. I mean all of us.  Scrolling the horrific images on Capitol Hill — a makeshift gallows set up on the West Front of the Capitol, for one all that kept running through my head is: “ We are better than this. We are better than this.

☛ Donald T-RUMP has spent four years weaponizing our small differences and ignoring both our common humanity and the common good. What happened today at the US Capitol is the natural result of the total lack of leadership, we are in the hands of a maniacal sub human ignorant son of a bitch who needs more than the impeachment, he needs extermination.
He should not be bothered by small insignificant feel good charges.  

He Is A Traitor To The United States And Charged As Such

☛ Over 200,000 leads poured into the FBI’s massive manhunt with pictures and some people turning in family members and the charges of sedition, trespass, murder, attacking police on federal property are not a joke.  Those captured on pictures are being arrested, they all need to tracked down and severe penalties dolled out.   

☛ And there is conspiracy, it was thought out, planned by some groups and a direct attack of Domestic Terrorism on the United States of America.  That carries an extremely bad penalty.   Evidence uncovered so far, including weapons and tactics seen on surveillance video, suggests a level of planning that has led investigators to believe ( now they have lots of  proof as some who have committed the crimes realize they are looking at severe FEDERAL CHARGES and ten years) the attack on the US Capitol was not just a protest that spiraled out of control, a federal law enforcement official says.

☛ Among the evidence the FBI is examining, indications that some participants at the T-RUMP rally at the Ellipse, outside the White House, left the event early, perhaps to retrieve items to be used in the assault on the Capitol.   The presence of corruption prosecutors and agents is in part because of their expertise in financial investigations. “ We are following the money,” the official said.

☛ A team of investigators and prosecutors are also focused on the command and control aspect of the attack, looking at travel and communications records to determine if they can build a case that is similar to a counterterrorism investigation, the official said.


THE POINT:
If you’re not sad — and a little scared — by what happened in Washington right now, you’re not paying enough attention… there are people out to destroy our country in favor of an Authortarianism Type Government …

And like T-RUMP if you watched and cheered, you are in need of counseling.   ( Because of the ignorance and high percentage of T-RUMP converts and lemmings reading this look up Authoritarianism on Wikipedia). Best example would be Hitler or Putin

And if you believe the GOP Senate was right and acquitted  T-rump of the charges of sedition and lies… you are a total moron and not a believer, never in truth and honesty and God will handle that, you supported a liar whole lies killed  half a million people…

May they rest in peace and never be forgotten and may those whose supported it rot in hell.

You are not fit to be called an American…  


Now The Charges Have Escalated To Murder The Killing Of A Police Officer

Prosecutors in the US Attorney’s office opened a federal murder investigation into the death of Brian D. Sicknick  a US Capitol Police officer who died Thursday night, a law enforcement official tells CNN. 

Officer Sicknick was injured Wednesday when a mob of President Donald Trump's supporters stormed the US Capitol. He died at approximately 9:30 p.m. ET Thursday “ Due to injuries sustained while on-duty,” Capitol Police officials said in a statement.

The death is being investigated by the DC Metropolitan Police Department’s homicide branch, the US Capitol Police and their federal partners.  He was interned as a hero in the Capitol Rotunda attended by President Biden and Members of Congress, and will be buried with full honors at Arlington National Cemetery.

May He Rest In Peace As He Died A Hero Defending Our 

Freedoms And May He Always Be Remembered…

Update  2/27/2021  —  The FBI has identified a suspect it’s focusing on in the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, according to law enforcement officials.  The theory, as CNN has reported, is that Sicknick became ill from bear spray used by the mob that attacked the Capitol on January 6, and video evidence CNN previously reported on appears to show the attack that could have caused his death.  It remains a difficult case for investigators and it's not clear what charge they will be able to bring.

In police audio played at former President Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial, officers could be heard screaming during the attack that some members of the violent Capitol mob were spraying them with bear spray.   Investigators determined that initial reports suggesting Sicknick had been struck with a fire extinguisher weren't true, CNN previously reported.

More than 100 other police officers were injured in the melee last month, including at least 15 who required hospitalization, according to court documents.  Sicknick's body lay in honor at the Capitol in an emotional ceremony early this month, during which President Joe Biden, first lady Jill Biden and congressional leaders paid visits.


HELL’S LAST STAND


Historic Second Impeachment Debate  —  Voted Guilty — 

The House voted today to make Donald T-RUMP the first President in United States history to be impeached for a second time with a swift and bipartisan vote to condemn his role inciting the riots at the US Capitol.   232-197 with Ten Republicans agreeing.
The speed of the vote and support from at least a handful of Republicans underscores the fury that lawmakers feel about Trump’s role inciting the rioters who overtook the Capitol following months of false rhetoric about the election being stolen from him. The impeachment resolution the House voted and  on Wednesday charges T-RUMP with a single article, “ Incitement of insurrection.”  
It was expected the Senate will vote down criminal charges again. Scumbags always to the end

Additional charges may be brought at the Trial in the Senate by experienced prosecutors, election lawyers and some public officials who have piled on calling for criminal investigations into whether President Donald T-RUMP broke election fraud laws when he pressured Georgia officials on a phone call Saturday to “ Find” 11,870 votes that would reverse his loss in the state. 

He was asking them to lie and cheat.  They refused and recorded the call… If added or goes to trial it insures that T-RUMP cannot ever hold a public office… 


House Scumbags, Medal Of Freedom, Wittness Tampering  —  T-RUMP awards the Medal of Freedom to the two biggest liars and obstructionists in Congress.  Sen. Nunes and Rep. Jordan, disgusting and a mockery Of The MEDAL Of FREEDOM…    

He pardoned those who lied cheated, colluded, corrupted, cheated and were proven and judged guilty because they could testify against him… He needs to go to jail for that act alone… it’s a form of witness tampering and should be investigated… and get rid of those pardons with a committee vote of board keeping it honest not a mass throw out of criminals who did not pay the price.  Ther were far more deserving people than some he picked because he received many from lawyers.  This stunk heavier than the fish market and docks in lower Manhattan.
