I note the news reporters are calling them rioters, whereas the #blm were called protesters.

It's obviously not a riot, and not a coup attempt.
What is it then?

Time to open a new poll, if Trump gets impeached for the 2nd time.

So Trump went public and said he loved them? Clearly this is a good reason to invoke the 25th amendment as he must have lost his mind

Am I the only one who feels that the real victims here are the Capitol Hill cleaning staff?
Not only. A woman has died.

Absolute mess. Trump needs to go now. As for that lousy video he posted... he needs arresting for incitement.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

BTW, just read that the national guard was deployed by Pence, not Trump

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...08de1e3e7448c6

Seems like Pence is preparing to become the president for a few days.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Protests happening at multiple state capitals as well.

Put the popcorn aside and break out the booze.

"Protesters swarmed into the Kansas statehouse in Topeka and gathered inside the first floor of the Capitol rotunda, though the rally remained orderly, television station KSNT reported."

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Trump is drunk with power fueled by his supporters. His latest tweet:

These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!

25th Amendment.

Right now would be good, while all of Congress is in Washington for the joint session.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

So photos have confirmed it was indeed members of antifa and several BLM members from Philly as the group who raided the capital.

Oh really? Because you can tell a Trump supporter from.a BLM or Antifa "member" from a photo, right? Source?

I suspect you've been reading what's left of Trump's Twitter feed after Twitter finally stepped in and deleted some of his more egregious tweets, and banned him for 12 hours. One of my favourite replies there stated that it was definitely Antifa who invaded the Capitol because in photos "they were wearing helmets and backpacks". 😂

With powers of observation like that your talent is wasted, surely some intelligence agency must be ready to recruit you.

Hard to take someone seriously that feels that need to attempt to justify this kind of behavior, especially at this late stage.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I am beyond perplexed as to how to sow the divisive seeds in the US.

Not surprising that Trump waged war rather than concede. He reminds me of a 3 year old in a sandpit fighting over a shovel. He will do anything NOT to lose or have the "loser" name forever etched in his legacy. I happen to find this ironic and funny on many levels.

His efforts not to lose rendered him more pathetic than if he just conceded when he should have done. He did the Republican Party no favors; maybe that was his intent? If he was going to go down, why not wreak havoc and take all in his party with him. Narcissism at its best.

That said, for Guilianni, Trump and his son incite lawlessness?! Unforgivable in my view. Such a travesty on all levels.

The questions remains though, how does one mend this divided country?

Uncharted territories for Biden and in my view, not an easy one to govern.

I am not justifing anything, just passing along info. I find it a bit funny tbh as we all saw this coming, long before Trump ever took office.
I believe it was somone like Lin Wood or Andy Gno who had identified the known Antifa and BLM people as being some of those smashing windows, breaking down doors, then staying in que and between the ropes as they "stormed" the building. Lol
When certain players keep showing up to certain events you tend to become known. Rumors that antifa was there happened BEFORE any of this happened. They, along with Trump himself, were the match for the Trumpers fuel.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

What happened yesterday was awesome because now Trump has truly sealed his own doom with his public approval of the protestors and their actions. All of that never-seen-before craziness will now make it easier for Republicans to distance themselves from Trump in order to preserve what little reputation and dignity (if any) they have left. The storming of the Capitol will have outraged, shocked and scared even hard-line Republicans who didn't see it coming and will really make them aware of the gravity of the situation and the dangers of being associated with such a man.

In 2 weeks he will be out and then the real fun will begin with seeing how the media can collectively destroy tear him to shreds by cataloguing his litany of failures and what legal cases are brought against him. I'm really looking forward to it.

My FB Feed has some US friends claiming it was the antifa too. Itís like the refuse to see the truth and will find any excuse to exonerate those protestors and Trump as well.

It doesnít matter who it was ..... Trump called people to Washington and sent them to the Capitol... he gave them the opportunity. Whatever you name the group of people, Trump caused it!
