U.S. Capitol Trump Insurrection - Act 2

by Oui Wed Jan 13th, 2021 at 06:12:24 PM EST

Added to Wikipedia ... social unrest revolution to overthrow the elected government ..

2021 storming of the United States Capitol, on January 6, 2021, rioters supporting United States President Donald Trump's attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

In my Opinion, the Maidan Revolt had many Hallmarks of last week's attempt to change the results of an election. In 2014 there were foreign powers interfering and supporting the rioters. This was not the case in Washington, the rioters were a cross-section of the nation and came from many, many States.

Ukraine was divided in two large blocks ... the pro-West group with many rightwingers and anti-semites and the Russian speaking group which was represented by a lawful elected president. Corruption was everywhere and still exists today.

Many months of violence by both sides let to the outburst of Februari 2014 and the overthrow of the government.

The US Law Enforcement forces, National Guard, FBI and DOJ prosecutors are working 24/7 in a counter-terrorism mode to prevent a new attack of terror on Inauguration Day.

One week after the brutal siege of the Capitol, America's historic site of Democracy ... will more violence be prevented ...

National Guard armed to resist any further assault by militia groups on Democracy in days ahead of Inauguration Day..

The House will vote for a second Impeachment of a sitting President ... there needs to be accountability before healing can begin and Biden's presidency in the sign of uniting America.

Mike Pompeo cancels Europe trip after officials decline to meet with him | The Independent |

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has cancelled a trip to Europe trip at the last minute.

Mr Pompeo had been due to fly out on Tuesday but Reuters reports that Luxembourg's foreign minister and several top European Union officials have declined to meet with him.

Diplomats and people familiar with the matter confirmed the news to the wire service. The secretary was supposed to meet with his counterpart in Luxembourg before travelling on to Brussels.

The extraordinary snub to Washington comes just days after the storming of the Capitol by thousands of supporters of Donald Trump, an unprecedented attack on American democracy that stunned many world leaders and US allies.

Fortunately with the Trump administration all of Pompeo appointed ambassadors will be pulled. Exit the regime of harsh economic sanctions which kills tens of thousands across the region of the Middle-East and Persian Gulf. Hopefully America returns to participate in multilateral effort for Human Rights and a foreign policy not leaving out a diplomatic effort. Great relief!

Biden to unveil $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan with more stimulus checks

Biden is expected to announce the wage push, a mainstay of the Democratic Party since Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) popularized it during his 2016 presidential bid, in a Thursday evening speech outlining the broader $1.9 trillion relief proposal.

The federal minimum wage has been stuck at $7.25 since 2009, though several states and municipalities have implemented their own increases.

Democrats argue that the stagnant rate is one reason why wages overall have shown little sign of improvement over the past 12 years.

full text sell-sheet, not an OMB doc (Neera TANDEN's first opportunity would be ~ mid-summer formal draft to congress FY22).

subsidize continuation health coverage (COBRA) through the end of September. He is also asking Congress to expand and increase the value of the Premium Tax Credit to lower or eliminate health insurance premiums and ensure enrollees - including those who never had coverage through their jobs - will not pay more than 8.5 percent of their income for coverage.
COBRA fed subsidy is new-to-world; 8.5 ACA carriers' premium p.a. limit is not. So the trigger word is "eliminate" premium, ostensibly by 100% subsidy or tax credit (which is kind of redundant, because pre-tax withholding sec. 203, iirc, is SOP in firms > 50 payroll).

Wilmington 1898: When white supremacists overthrew a US government | BBC News |

Following state elections in 1898, white supremacists moved into the US port of Wilmington, North Carolina, then the largest city in the state. They destroyed black-owned businesses, murdered black residents, and forced the elected local government - a coalition of white and black politicians - to resign en masse.

Historians have described it as the only coup in US history. Its ringleaders took power the same day as the insurrection and swiftly brought in laws to strip voting and civil rights from the state's black population. They faced no consequences.

After the end of the US Civil War in 1865 - which pitted the northern Unionist states against the southern Confederacy - slavery was abolished throughout the newly-reunified country. Politicians in Washington DC passed a number of constitutional amendments granting freedom and rights to former slaves, and sent the army to enforce their policies.

But many southerners resented these changes. In the decades that followed the civil war there were growing efforts to reverse many of the efforts aimed at integrating the freed black population into society.

Wilmington in 1898 was a large and prosperous port, with a growing and successful black middle class. Undoubtedly, African Americans still faced daily prejudice and discrimination - banks for instance would refuse to lend to black people or would impose punishing interest rates. But in the 30 years after the civil war, African Americans in former Confederate states like North Carolina were slowly setting up businesses, buying homes, and exercising their freedom. Wilmington was even home to what was thought to be the only black daily newspaper in the country at that time, the Wilmington Daily Record.

Longtime Trump advisers connected to groups behind rally that led to Capitol attack | ABC News |

Roger Stone, Steve Bannon, and retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn all participated in efforts to promote the Jan. 6 "Stop the Steal" event that ultimately devolved into a riotous and deadly melee at the United States Capitol, leaving five dead and causing Trump to become the only president to be impeached for a second time.

While none of them spoke at the actual rally, Stone whipped up a crowd of Trump supporters in Washington the night before, telling them the president's enemies sought "nothing less than the heist of the 2020 election."

"And we say, No way!" Stone said at the Jan. 5 rally.

Flynn promoted the so-called "Jericho March," a rally of Christians to "pray, march, fast, and rally for election integrity," according to the group's website, that also took place on Jan. 6 in the shadow of the Capitol. In the weeks leading up to the event, Flynn told his supporters that they would "need to be fearless as Americans."

Speaking at a Dec. 12 rally in Washington to promote the Trump effort to overturn the election, Flynn told supporters they had reached a "crucible moment" and "there has to be sacrifice."

The Capitol siege was the biggest media spectacle of the Trump era | The Guardian |

Creating and maintaining the boomerwaffen universe requires an incredible amount of resources. Trump's disinformation campaigns are a media spectacle involving a stunning array of political operatives, media pundits, lawyers, and influencers who day-to-day create, publish and share a cascade of lies and speculation across webspaces, cable news and radio all at once.

This alternative media network features an all star cast of Steve Bannon, Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, Rudy Giuliani, Ali Alexander, Roger Stone, One America News, Newsmax, Peter Navarro, Mike Lindell (yes, that's the My Pillow guy), Nick Fuentes, and Ron Watkins just to name a few. This group spent the last four years building upon the networks and infrastructure of conservative media in order to serve Trump's interests. And, it pays off by creating a panoptic enclosure of Trump Media.

For example, millions of Americans believe the storming of the Capitol was orchestrated by antifa because the Washington Times placed a false story on social media during this moment of national crisis, the Republican representative Matt Gaetz repeated the claim on the congressional floor, and other influencers tweeted it. While the Washington Times later corrected the story, it accomplished a political objective: it muddied the waters and shifted blame in the moment.

Corporate donors flee Republican Party following Capitol Hill riot, and it's only the beginning

Disney has had enough.

So has Coca-Cola, Walmart, Hallmark, Amazon, Airbnb and Mastercard.

After last week's violent insurrection on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, which left five people dead, dozens of the world's biggest corporations are pulling their political donations from America's Republicans.

The companies -- many consistent Republican donors in the past -- are targeting the 147 Republicans who still challenged the results of America's presidential election after the Capitol building was stormed by Donald Trump's supporters on January 6.

Some companies say those Republicans will receive no donations for the rest of their political lives.

"The insurrection at our nation's Capital was a direct assault on one of our country's most revered tenets: the peaceful transition of power," a Disney spokesman told Politico this week.

"In the immediate aftermath of that appalling siege, Members of Congress had an opportunity to unite -- an opportunity that some sadly refused to embrace.

All National Guards participating will be vetted in concern for any insider attack. Fear and paranoia hits home ... not a surprise at all, finally.

Biden inauguration: 25,000 National Guard vetted over insider attack fears as state protests fizzle | The Guardian |

On Sunday, the only far-right groups that were visible at the protests were the ones who had first promoted the event: members of the "Boogaloo Bois", an extremist pro-gun and anti-government movement fixated on a coming civil war. Their desire to make the protest happen across all 50 states was not realized, and even in the states where protests took place, they were unable to muster significant numbers.

In Salem, Oregon, where the state capitol was breached in December, and where dozens of far-right protesters clashed with Oregon state police on 1 January, the entire protest consisted of eight heavily armed Boogaloo Bois, compared with more than 20 reporters.

In Lansing Michigan, about a dozen Boogaloo Bois showed up to protest, according to local news reports. One journalist estimated the Boogaloo Bois stayed for about 30 minutes.


The National Guard vetting process began as the first troops began deploying to DC more than a week ago, according to multiple officials.

"The question is, is that all of them? Are there others?" said McCarthy. "We need to be conscious of it and we need to put all of the mechanisms in place to thoroughly vet these men and women who would support any operations like this."

"This is a national priority. We have to be successful as an institution," said McCarthy. "We want to send the message to everyone in the United States and for the rest of the world that we can do this safely and peacefully."

A Disinformation-Misinformation Ecology: The Case of Trump

This paper lays out many of the factors that make disinformation or misinformation campaigns of Trump successful. By all rational standards, he is unfit for office, a compulsive liar, incompetent, arrogant, ignorant, mean, petty, and narcissistic. Yet his approval rating tends to remain at 40%. Why do rational assessments of his presidency fail to have any traction? This paper looks at the conflation of knowledge and beliefs in partisan minds, how beliefs lead to self-deception and social self-deception and how they reinforce one another. It then looks at psychological factors, conscious and unconscious, that predispose partisans to pursue partisan sources of information and reject non-partisan sources.

The weirdest presidential transitions in history, explained | CNN News |

The transition that took place in early 1829 was like no other in American history. For nearly three decades, presidential successions had been anointings, with each president handing power to his favorite, and the president's party and the electoral college endorsing the selection.

Andrew Jackson's inauguration marked a distinctly hostile takeover of the government. Jackson had been denied victory in 1824 as a result of what the Jacksonians called a "corrupt bargain" between John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay, an inside deal that gave Adams the presidency and made Clay the heir apparent.

The Jacksonians' resentment mounted during the next four years, and it fueled a mean, dirty campaign for the 1828 election. The Jacksonians assailed Adams as a fraud and an aristocrat; the Adams side attacked Jackson as a closet Caesar and his wife, Rachel, as a slut and a bigamist. Rachel, who hated politics, broke down and died under the strain, understandably magnifying Jackson's anger at his opponents.

Jackson won handily, and his supporters surged to Washington to prevent eleventh-hour shenanigans by the Adams men. To the residents of the capital, these calloused farmers, many from beyond the mountains that separated the East from the West in those days, seemed a horde of barbarians. They acted the part.

At Jackson's inauguration they swarmed the White House in their muddy boots, soiling the carpets, ruining the furniture and breaking the china. When the doors couldn't handle the pressure of their desire to congratulate their hero, they came in the windows. Jackson was forced to flee the celebration lest he be crushed.

Prosecutors say they planned and fundraised for the effort, then came to Washington, DC, and stormed past police and into the Capitol building as part of the violent crowd, according to a copy of the indictment.

Wednesday's indictment came shortly after the Justice Department made clear it had taken more investigative steps against Proud Boys affiliates related to the insurrection. The Proud Boys are a far-right group known for their clashes with Antifa and general support of former President Donald Trump, who even mentioned them in a presidential debate, telling them to "stand back and stand by."
