    'Trump is my president': Protesters gather in DC a day before Congress certifies election, clash with police at night

    WASHINGTON — Crowds of President Donald Trump's supporters gathered Tuesday, a day before planned rallies and protests likely to attract conspiracy theorists and far-right extremists to the nation's capital.


    By Tuesday night, DC police had announced six protest-related arrests. The Metropolitan Police Department made five arrests — three men, two women — with charges ranging from carrying a pistol without a license to assault of a police officer, according to a spokesman.


    The spokesman added the U.S. Park Police also made one arrest.


    Fervent Trump supporters are convening in D.C. this week to contest what they call a rigged election, despite a lack of evidence of widespread voter fraud. The rallies coincide with a congressional vote to certify President-elect Joe Biden's win in the Electoral College on Wednesday.

    Changed their usernames/profiles b/c they're too ashamed of losing and who they are, and rightly so. They'll reappear soon enough like cockroaches.

    Rioters storm Capitol after Trump urges action, halting declaration of Biden victory



    WASHINGTON – Vice President Mike Pence was ushered out of the Senate as the U.S. Capitol Complex went into lockdown due to an external security threat, while Trump supporters rioted outside the building.


    A member of the Senate told NBC News that Vice President Pence and Sen. Charles Grassley, the president pro-tem, have been taken to a secure location. The Senate doors are closed and locked, and senators have been told to stay away from the doors.

    There are reports of SWAT gathering, teargas being fired, congressmen being issued gasmasks, shots being fired, a girl having been killed....

    Of course, none of this is confirmed.

    Trump Is Furious—but Not at the MAGA Mob That Stormed the Capitol


    As President Trump watched a mob of thousands of his supporters storm the seat of the United States government on Wednesday from a safe distance, he characteristically stewed and blew off steam in the White House—but not at the public displays of anti-democratic action that were unfolding in the nation’s capital.


    Upon arrival back at the White House, the president vented his fury that politicians and people on cable news were already starting to hold him responsible for the day’s mayhem, according to two people familiar with the situation. Predictably, Trump held the position that it wasn’t his fault, and that a strong public denunciation was not necessary at the time, the sources relayed.


    Trump did, however, make time to continue privately griping throughout Wednesday afternoon about how unfair his own vice president was being to him.


    White House spokespeople did not immediately provide comment for this story.


    Trump’s only public statements of the afternoon came via his preferred medium of Twitter. As the mob stormed the gates of the Capitol Building, the president was busy lashing out at his own vice president for refusing to nullify a presidential election in order to illegally keep him in power.

    Talk of carrying on later tonight. Pence and the rest are still in the capitol building. Perhaps they are hanging out in a closet or something.

    The electoral college ballots, which will finalize Joe Biden’s victory, are now on their way back to the Senate chamber.
    Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer has indicated that the chambers will reconvene to continue with the certification in about 45 minutes.

    Twitter locks Trump's account for at least 12 hours


    Twitter has announced that Donald Trump’s account will be locked for at least 12 hours, after the removal of three of the president’s tweets.

    “As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C., we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy,” the Twitter Safety account said in a tweet thread.


    “This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.”


    The social media giant added, “Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our Civic Integrity or Violent Threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account.”


    The White House has also already called a lid for tonight, meaning the president will not make any other public appearances today, so we won’t be hearing from him for the rest of the night.

    Democracy ‘must be respected’! France, UK & NATO condemn chaos in Washington, call for ‘peaceful transfer of power’

    6 Jan, 2021 22:00 / Updated 1 hour ago

    "European leaders and NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg have condemned the storming of the US Congress by supporters of President Donald Trump and called for Joe Biden to be confirmed as the new US leader.


    “Shocking scenes in Washington, DC. The outcome of this democratic election must be respected,
    Stoltenberg tweeted on Wednesday, as videos of protesters breaching the chambers of Congress and disrupting the joint session that was supposed to certify the 2020 election for Biden traveled around the world.


    “Disgraceful scenes in US Congress,” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson chimed in. “The United States stands for democracy around the world and it is now vital that there should be a peaceful and orderly transfer of power,” added the British PM.

    "Violence against American institutions is a serious attack on democracy. I condemn them," tweeted French Minister of European and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian. "The will and vote of the American people must be respected."

    Rumors in the media says Mike Pence gave the order for the National Guard to come in to DC instead of Trump. The Pentagon has been consulting with Pence.

    Do you realize now what you have done? US gets the kind of ‘democracy’ it championed overseas

    "A crowd of protesters stormed Congress protesting a presidential election they claimed had been fraudulent. When this happened in Serbia in 2000, the US called it democracy. When it happened in Washington, DC – not so much.
    Scenes from the US Capitol on Wednesday, as protesters backing President Donald Trump disrupted the joint session of Congress meeting to certify the election of Democrat Joe Biden, looked very much like Belgrade in October 2000.

    The sight was later repeated in Ukraine – twice, in 2004 and 2014 – Georgia, Moldova, Belarus, and several Central Asian former Soviet republics. On every occasion, the US backed the “people power,” because American NGOs and embassies were supporting what became known as “color revolutions.”

    Same thing happened in 2011 with the “Arab Spring” that started in Tunisia and then burned its way across North Africa to the Persian Gulf. In some places it “succeeded,” overthrowing decades-old governments. In others it failed, setting off wars in Libya and Syria and blood on the streets of Bahrain. Again, the US cheered this on as democracy – except for Bahrain, which hosts a major naval base.
    More recently, the US denounced as illegitimate the presidential elections in Belarus, Bolivia and Venezuela. While Minsk and Caracas managed to resist – and got sanctioned for it – the “democrats” in La Paz were successful for a while, but ended up losing the vote last year.

    Way back in 2004, the Guardian wrote approvingly about how the US has created a “slick” operation of “engineering democracy through the ballot box and civil disobedience,” developing since Belgrade a “template for winning other people’s elections.”

    Now the same mainstream media that slavishly followed the State Department line in denouncing elections elsewhere as “rigged” and color revolutions as spontaneous democracy are clutching their pearls when Americans who believe their election was stolen take to the streets and storm their Capitol.

    Ah, but this election wasn’t stolen, they’d say – it was pure as driven snow, “most secure ever,” all the experts who told us for four years the previous one was “hacked by Russia” tell us so! And Joe Biden won the most votes in history while hardly leaving his basement. Whether you believe this official narrative about the US election or not doesn’t really matter, however. Partisan myopia simply won’t let people understand the magnitude of what is on display here: utter moral bankruptcy of the entire US political and media establishment.

    Republicans and Democrats alike used “color revolutions” as a political weapon for years, preaching democracy even as their astroturfed coups snuffed out any vestiges of it that might have developed organically. Over the past year, they’ve done so at home as well, using Covid-19 lockdowns to abolish elementary constitutional rights, culminating with changing the electoral rules to better serve “our democracy,” defined as whatever gets them power.

    What did they think people would do when all avenues of airing their grievances were closed off? Meekly submit – or take a page out of the same playbook the politicians and the media spent 20 years celebrating?

    Don’t go “but Trump,” either. The supposed Nazi fascist dictator himself ordered National Guard and police to clear out the protesters who sided with him, and protect the establishment that did not. He’s a real Hitler, right? No matter, expect the media to paint him as such anyway.

    Perhaps the US ought to take a long, hard look at its own house before it continues calling out, sanctioning, regime-changing or bombing other countries over their supposed lack of “democracy.” Maybe actually answer the question Russian President Vladimir Putin asked at the UN back in 2015, addressing the consequences of the ‘Arab Spring’: “Do you realize now what you have done?”

    But we all know that’s not going to happen, don’t we?"
