Imagine you are a colonist in 1770s America. As the tyranny of King George continues to increase its authoritarian rule over the colonists, there is anger and talk of revolution. At first, minor skirmishes occur that eventually lead to major incidents such as the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party in which your friends are shot and killed by British troops. Small groups of colonists begin to meet in secret, afraid of British retaliation. Samuel Adams forms the Sons of Liberty and establishes a network for communication among patriot groups in each of the colonies called the Committees of Correspondence.
On the evening of April 18, 1775, Dr. Joseph Warren, a noted patriot leader in Boston, got word that the British planned to march to Concord, destroy guns and supplies of the colonists, and arrest Samuel Adams and John Hancock in Lexington. Dr. Warren asked friend and fellow patriot Paul Revere to ride to Lexington and Concord to spread the word. Paul Revere’s written history of that night tells of a second rider from Boston, William Dawes, who met up with Revere after midnight in Lexington to warn Adams and Hancock. There, they were joined by a third rider, Dr. Samuel Prescott, who rode on to Concord, stopping at houses all along the way to prepare to intercept the British forces on Lexington Green and in Concord.

Early in the civil war President Lincoln had Federal Troops occupy the State of Maryland. Though the power vested only with the US Congress, Mr. Lincoln also took it upon himself to suspend the writ of Habeas Corpus (the right of trial) throughout Maryland and eventually throughout the entire Union. Mr. Lincoln also authorized his military commanders to imprison and even execute non-combatant civilians both within Maryland and throughout the Union. Thousands of Marylanders were imprisoned with no charges filed and it is estimated that 14,000 civilians were arrested and imprisoned throughout the Union under this policy.
Military executions, though rare, did happen and were used to show a public display of force to the civilian population. In Fredrick Maryland the citizens were shocked over the execution by Federal troops of Mr. William Richardson a local paper and map peddler. William was hung naked from a locust tree along the roadside about one mile outside of the town of Fredrick and his corpse was left to rot for nearly a week in the hot summer sun. The Union Commander had a note pined to William’s chest that stated “Anybody cutting down the body without orders will take his place”

I'm sorry; I don't understand the use of the word "riot" even though English is the only language in which I'm fluent.
Where are the fires set by the rioters? I didn't see any garbage strewn in the streets; I didn't see any overturned garbage cans or other impedimenta that might prevent the police or ambulances from getting to crisis points; I didn't see any thugs jumping up and down on the hoods and roofs of parked cars.
I agree: as I get older my vision certainly hasn't improved, but I didn't see any of this. I did see an orderly line of people waiting to enter and some entering the Capitol between lines of velvet ropes.
Was this a different day? Did I miss something, other than hearing the announcers on NPR screaming about rioters.
This certainly isn't anything similar to the riots I've seen in my hometown of Portland, Oregon.
I guess I've missed out on something big!
"There’s a lot of people demanding the end of violence…I am glad the men at Lexington and Concord didn’t feel that way."
Fox News has appeared to turn on President Trump.
Vice President Pence has appeared to backstab Trump.
And even Senate Republicans appear to have lost their backbone…
Conservative author and commentator Mark Steyn addressed on his website Thursday what he sees as the overwhelming hypocrisy and “sanctimonious drivel” of the continued media coverage of the chaos at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
In his trademark acutely witty manner, Steyn observed the high moralistic tone of many in the political class and their allies in the media judging the events of the violence at “the people’s house,” particularly those who stood “on the Capitol’s dignity”:
The media may be sentimental about the Capitol, but in my unscientific survey of my North Country neighbors the people aren’t. Congress has an approval rating that falls somewhere between Isis and child pornographers. Pundits and politicians can wax mawkish about “the people’s house” but you’d be hard-pressed to find one in a thousand citizens who’s ever used those words in a non-contemptuous sense – and most of the other 999 would assume that the phrase referred to some long-term care facility Andrew Cuomo moves the old folks into for his Covid express checkout.

Social media is aflame after it emerged that John Earle Sullivan, a
Utah-based Black Lives Matter organizer, was one of the people who
entered the Capitol building with Trump-supporters on Wednesday.
Some are theorizing that Sullivan, who was arrested on felony rioting and multiple other charges last Summer after a shooting in Provo, is part of a Black Lives Matter conspiracy to make Trump-supporters look bad. Sullivan, the leader of Insurgence USA, was filmed in July as the ringleader directing a group of armed men who trapped a car and opened fire on the motorist.
Yet unlike dozens of others arrested by the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) after they left the Capitol building, Sullivan was released without charges after a short detention.
Despite the Department of Justice and FBI vowing to viciously punish every individual who entered the federal building, Sullivan continues to do public interviews incriminating himself after online sleuths identified him. He also witnessed and filmed the shooting of the unarmed white woman Ashli Babbitt by a black federal agent, but refuses to publish the footage.
While it is certain that Sullivan was at the Trump march to collect intelligence and act as an agent provocateur, evidence suggests he was operating on behalf of the FBI rather than Antifa.
The one that got away.
Maria Zack: Italy Did It - Arturo D'Elia Admits to Stealing Election: This May Be The Biggest News Story Of The Year.
Via Mike "Youtube took this down but you need to watch it. The proof from the actual man in Italy who worked for Leonardo, one of the biggest defense contractors in the world, who uploaded the info from Leonardo to the satellite that was then downloaded to the servers we have taken in Germany that then flipped the necessary votes from Trump to Biden.
He has already been in court in Italy and signed an affidavit which has been delivered to Congressman Loudermilk, Mark Meadows, Congressman Hice, and a few others in Congress. He apparently just could not understand why they were stealing the America election and felt that he had to fess up. The information has been delivered to President Trump by hand as well from the lady in the video on Christmas Eve. Delivered on January 6th, I think. Our own CIA was involved."
Documents were delivered to people in Congress and the Presidents Chief of Staff.This May Be The Biggest News Story Of The Year.
President Trump Was Right, There Was Foreign Interference In The Election.

Dear Brock,Here's how I see it, Antifa would have shown up at the DC protest regardless. Because they are always active, in a sense. They would have shown up to counter Trump supporters, and support Biden's certification. The fact that they didn't show up at the protest, means they were busy doing something else. Like preparing for a raid? Lol. That says a lot. That's just my point of view.
Thank you for taking the time to respond, I appreciate it.
Trump: ‘I’ll be with you’ and encouraged the.... march to the Capitol to protest the certification of the electoral college votes.” How does this Condone Riots?

Given my massive discomfort with a Joe Biden presidency, I think it only right to call a Spade a Spade and give some equal time an analysis to his Pompous, Arrogant, and Bombastic opponent!
For now Nancy Pelosi is calling for an immediate impeachment of President Trump, blaming him for what happened yesterday. She said he’s a “dangerous man, dangerous to the democracy and to the American people.” It’s funny but Trump supporters, who she refers to as “Trump thugs,” were let into the Capitol by Capitol policemen.It was caught on video and it was part of their plan. The Capitol is one of the most Secure federal buildings in the nation. I learned that from serving in The Old Guard. It’s the main responsibility of the President’s Guard, to keep our Nation’s Capitol safe. What happened yesterday was a definitely a setup!
