    Thinking about it, the statement gives the impression that three otter people died in the building, which almost certainly isn't the case. They probably died at the rally before everything kicked off.

    It doesn't seem quite so weird that three people might die out of a population of a few tens of thousands. It could just be that three fat old bastards had heart attacks.

    They aren't exactly pictures of health, and a bit of tear gas could easily send them into medical distress.

    This Q-Anon, Trumpism, Deep State, Voter Fraud nonsense will not go away after Jan 20th. I think it will continue and become more entrenched. This is the fodder that right wing needs to survive and thrive and now they will just continue to run with it through the next four years and beyond. It was during the Clinton era when right wing wackery got it's foothold in the American psyche and has just grown exponentially since. Biden or the Dems won't turn things around, everything they do will be scrutinized and twisted by the masters of spin and this not-so-cold civil war will lurch along, folks yelling at each other and occasional violence to bring an extra sparkle to American life.

    This ends with the downfall of the US and it's hegemony over world affairs, possibly knocking the US Dollar off the pedestal as the default world currency. Putin's wet dream come true.

    A Great Reset. Maybe in my lifetime.

    US Capitol police officer dies of injuries in riot by Donald Trump supporters
    Good, no-one gets treated better in custody than a cop killer. Let's see if their parler membership saves them.

    Publishers have cancelled a planned book by Senator Josh Hawley, who objected to Joe Biden’s presidential election win and backed baseless claims that the vote was stolen.

    Thousands of Trump supporters gathered in Washington on Wednesday and many ended up storming into the Capitol building and occupying it for hours, resulting in four deaths and delaying the certification of Biden’s win. A widely seen photo, taken before the occupation, shows Hawley raising a fist in solidarity to the crowd.

    In a statement on Thursday, Simon & Schuster announced: “After witnessing the disturbing, deadly insurrection that took place on Wednesday in Washington DC, Simon & Schuster has decided to cancel publication of Senator Josh Hawley’s forthcoming book, The Tyranny of Big Tech.


    “We did not come to this decision lightly,” the publisher added. “As a publisher it will always be our mission to amplify a variety of voices and viewpoints: at the same time we take seriously our larger public responsibility as citizens, and cannot support Senator Hawley after his role in what became a dangerous threat to our democracy and freedom.”

    More details emerging....

    Three others died after suffering unspecified medical emergencies on Capitol grounds: Benjamin Philips, 50, from Pennsylvania; Kevin Greeson, 55, from Alabama; and Rosanne Boyland, 34, from Georgia. Mr Greeson's family said he died of a heart attack.

    Greeson, a father of five with high blood pressure, was reportedly on the phone with his wife when he fell to the sidewalk


    Phillips, a computer programmer from Pennsylvania who founded the website Trumparoo for the president's supporters to communicate, suffered a stroke


    Boyland was "trampled in the Rotunda," her family confirmed to the Daily Mail after police said she may have been "crushed" in the mob.

    The photograph suggests a fair bit of trampling was required.

    So baldy orange loser has spent his entire career answering any challenge by burying his opponents in lawsuits and legal bills. This might have worked when he was stiffing small businesses.

    Someone should tell the dumb orange wanker that it doesn't work with the SCOTUS.



    WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court rejected pleas from President Trump and his allies to expedite their pending challenges to November’s election, all but assuring the justices won’t consider the appeals before Joe Biden assumes the presidency Jan. 20.

    In unsigned orders issued Monday, the court without comment denied requests to expedite more than half a dozen cases seeking to overturn Mr. Biden’s victories in states including Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. By leaving them on the regular calendar, the Trump appeals won’t be scheduled for consideration until late January at earliest.

    The justices are under no obligation to hear the cases, and few legal observers expect that they will.

    Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), the congresswoman whom President Donald Trump called a star over her defenses of him during 2019 impeachment hearings, has been booted off a prestigious committee at the Harvard Institute of Politics.

    The institute on Tuesday announced that it has removed Stefanik from its Senior Advisory Committee over her lies about the 2020 presidential election being "stolen" from Trump.


    In a letter sent to the committee, Harvard Kennedy School Dean Douglas Elmendorf said that Stefanik's false claims about voter fraud in the election had forced him to conclude that she did not deserve a spot at the Harvard Institute of Politics.

    Elmendorf also revealed that he asked Stefanik to voluntarily step aside from her post -- but she refused.

    "I told her that I would therefore remove her from the IOP's Senior Advisory Committee at this time," he wrote.


    Stefanik issued a defiant response to Elmendorf in which she said she was proud to have been "canceled" by Harvard.


    "The decision by Harvard's administration to cower and cave to the woke Left will continue to erode the diversity of thought, public discourage, and ultimately the student experience," she said.

    Things are getting really crazy.

    One domestic terrorist plot uncovered ahead of next week’s inauguration involved thousands of people surrounding the US Capitol building.

    “They were talking about 4,000 armed ‘patriots’ to surround the Capitol and prevent any Democrat from going in,” Lamb, of Pennsylvania, told CNN earlier on Tuesday.

    He said they were painting themselves as patriots on a mission to reclaim the country as if they were overthrowing the British colonial power in the American revolution prior to the United States declaring independence in 1776.
    They have published ‘rules of engagement’, meaning when you shoot and when you don’t. So this is an organized group that has a plan. They are committed to doing what they’re doing because I think in their minds, you know, they are patriots and they’re talking about 1776 and so this is now a contest of wills,” Lamb said.

    He said that law enforcement departments in and near Washington were taking the threats seriously and planning for them.

    Meanwhile Ro Khanna, Democratic congressman of California, told CNN that some Republican members of Congress as well as Democrats have received death threats.

    And Lamb added, “We are not negotiating with or reasoning with these people. They have to be prosecuted. They have to be stopped. And unfortunately, that includes the president, which is why he needs to be impeached and removed from office.”
    The House of Representatives will on Wednesday debate the impeachment article introduced against Donald Trump on Monday and are expected to vote to impeach the president for an unprecedented second time.

    Washington mayor Muriel Bowser, told ABC on Tuesday the pro-Trump mob that invaded the US Capitol last week seeking forcefully to overturn Joe Biden’s election victory are “white supremacist rioters”.
