Maybe Storming The Capitol Wasn't Such A Good Idea


Recommended Posts

Andrew Clyde (

), the person screaming at the far left of this photo, is the person who recently likened the brutal, wildly out of control, deadly violent Jan. 6 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol to overthrow the will of the people, to a "normal tourist visit."

Some folks take great pride in their ignorance and go out of their way to flaunt it, even to exaggerate it. They like to show it off like they are wearing a lair of the latest Air Jordans. I don't get

You are talking about folks that were taking selfies, some with their company IDs hanging from their necks. Burner phones to cover their tracks?  I'm surprised they didn't order delivered pizzas

Who's the guy on the right with what appears to be a pistol in the House chambers?

If this is what everyday Capitol tourists look like, I have to admit, that I must have been blind folded in 1974 when I went there with my school trip. Yes we were mini terrorists who just wanted to grope our female classmates, while our "chaperones" hooked up w/ each other one floor beneath us. But we did not shit on the floor, nor smear said shit on the walls of congress, nor did we break any doors/windows, or bones...... Well, there was that one guy who fell down the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and broke his wrist, but....

If stupidity becomes an accepted legal defence we might as well close the prisons and eliminate the police.

The party of personal responsibility doesn't want an investigation into the broad scope of the insurrection, and she also has the sads about how they are being treated.

How do fish get caught?

He bragged at the dentist’s office about attending the Capitol riot, feds say. Another patient turned him in.

Less than a week after the failed insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, a patient at a dentist’s office in western New York couldn’t believe what was being said nearby. During a routine checkup on Jan. 12, a patient listened in as an alleged rioter who was getting his teeth cleaned bragged about his breach of the building, according to federal authorities.

Daniel Warmus, of Alden, N.Y., talked of smoking marijuana inside the Capitol and refusing a police officer’s order to leave the building, and even proudly played a video from Jan. 6, a federal complaint states.

After the patient “overheard Warmus talking about his experience while at a dentist’s office,” the person, who authorities said wished to remain anonymous, alerted the FBI and passed along Warmus’s phone number and home address. That mundane trip to the dentist’s office led to an investigation that concluded this week with Warmus, 37, in police custody.

New York man charged in Capitol insurrection made 143 violent calls to Michigan 911 line, FBI says

CALHOUN COUNTY, MI – A New York man made about 143 threatening calls to Calhoun County 911 dispatchers, according to a federal indictment.

The caller, who identified himself as “Yankee Patriot,” spent several hours Jan. 5 calling Calhoun County’s 911 line and threatening the dispatcher that he would kill her and attack her family if she did not put a police officer on the line, the indictment said.

The man, identified by the FBI as Jonathan Joshua Munafo from Albany, New York, is also facing charges after he allegedly took part in the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, court documents show.

Munafo is accused of punching a U.S. Capitol Police officer, using a flagpole to attempt to break windows at the U.S. Capitol and stealing a riot shield, according the FBI’s statement of facts.

‘Breached the Door, Baby’: Feds Charge Oath Keeper Who Allegedly Plotted With Group Ahead of Riots

A leader of the New Jersey chapter of the Oath Keepers has been charged for allegedly planning with other members of the paramilitary group to storm the U.S. Capitol. James Breheny, the Bergen County, New Jersey, “coordinator” for the far-right group, has been charged with several crimes, including violent entry and impeding an official proceeding, for his role in the Jan. 6 siege. According to a criminal complaint unsealed on Thursday, Breheny had been planning for the siege with other members as early as December, when he invited Oath Keeper founder Stewart Rhodes to a meeting of “multiple patriot groups” three days before the Capitol riots to “prepare.” “This will be the day we get our comms on point with multiple other patriot groups, share rally points etc,” Breheny said, according to the complaint. “This one is important and I believe this is our last chance to organize before the show. This meeting will be for leaders only.”

Capitol Rioters Not Willing to Take Plea Deals

May 21, 2021 at 11:54 am EDT By Taegan Goddard 146 Comments

Reuters: “Nearly four months after the U.S. Capitol attack, just one of more than 440 people charged has pleaded guilty, a sign of tough conditions set by prosecutors for plea deals and resistance by defense lawyers to their demands.”

“Lawyers for more than a dozen defendants said plea talks so far have foundered because prosecutors demanded their clients turn over social media data, cell phones and other evidence, while also pushing for prison sentences they would not accept.”

Quoted just so everyone can have another look.

It would appear that Republicans didn't give a fuck about the law long before the Trump era, although those four long years tweaked the figures bigly.

Democrats are apparently either mostly ethical and law-abiding, or master criminal Socialist satanist pedophile cannibal email users who just keep successfully avoiding arrest and conviction.....

Why service members charged in the Capitol riot are staying in uniform — for now

Commanders are waiting for legal proceedings at the Justice Department before they make administrative decisions for charged troops, defense officials have said.

At least five service members face federal charges for allegedly participating: an active-duty Marine Corps officer who was arrested last week, two part-time soldiers in the Army Reserve and two in the National Guard.

“The harm is against the civilian government. The civilian government should be prosecuting it,” said Rachel E. VanLandingham, a former Air Force lawyer and president of the National Institute of Military Justice, a nonprofit focused on military law issues.

Only one of the service members, Maj. Christopher Warnagiris, serves on active duty and is subject to UCMJ considerations.

Warnagiris, a Marine Corps officer, was accused last week of leading rioters in through the east doors of the Capitol Rotunda. He has been charged with five counts, including assaulting and obstructing police during a civil disorder and obstructing an official proceeding of Congress, according to federal prosecutors.

Military officials will coordinate with civilian prosecutors any UCMJ action that Warnagiris might face to “avoid negatively impacting the case due to legal and other logistical considerations,” said Maj. J.A. Hernandez, a Marine Corps spokesperson.

Waiting for a decision before determining whether Warnagiris should be kicked out of the military is practical, VanLandingham said.

Warnagiris could be removed from the service before a verdict in his case is reached in civilian court. But he would be entitled to a hearing, where a board would decide his fate, VanLandingham said. A criminal conviction would take away that right, and the Marine Corps could separate him without going through a lengthy process.

If the Marine Corps wanted to go through a trial, it could not charge him with the same charges he faced in civilian court, VanLandingham said. But some military offenses, like conduct unbecoming of an officer and a gentleman, would not violate double jeopardy rules if the underlying conduct is distinct from that alleged in the original charges.

Prosecutors may have asked the Marine Corps to apply a light touch with Warnagiris for now in case they need to seek his cooperation. It is possible, for instance, that he knows others involved in the Jan. 6 events and could provide helpful information, VanLandingham said.

Warnagiris, a field artillery officer with several combat deployments, is assigned to a policy and standards office at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia.

“He reports to work each day and is closely supervised,” Hernandez said. It is unclear whether he is allowed to use firearms or retains the security clearance that every military officer receives.

We should edit out the late-arriving and politically-motivated inclusion of "under god" and get back to the true basics of the nation.  

"indivisible, and with liberty and justice for all." would do just fine as a pledge.

No, another person who misses the point. 

See the lot of you are fixed on a few people that pushed their way into the Capitol Building during the election certification. Not the least bit what I am talking about.
I think there comes a time when our elected officials need to understand that the citizens of the United States are a bit pissed off at how the government is being run. At a certain point a wake-up call will become absolutely necessary. The reason for this is our elected officials fancy themselves as some sort of political elite class not really beholden to the will of the people.

The pledge, in whichever form, is not a blind loyalty to our failed leaders. It is an allegiance to uphold and protect our constitution. Again, you are confused that the political class and the Republic are interchangeable, they are not.

As far voting for minor candidates.  Have at it!  Or don't bother to vote.  Which is the same thing in the US system.  Regrettably perthaps, but that is the case.
