The Capitol Hill Riot Was Pelosi’s Fault, Not Trump’s
Why couldn’t Congress’ private police force of 2,000 protect it from a mob of hundreds?

By Daniel Greenfield | Front Page Mag Friday, March 05, 2021

The Capitol Police have over 2,000 sworn officers. A police force dedicated to protecting Capitol Hill has more personnel in its service than the police forces of most of the country.

Congress’ private cops are the 19th largest police force in the country. It’s a larger force than the police forces of Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, or Milwaukee with a massive $460 million budget.

It’s the only legislative federal force in the country that is answerable exclusively to Congress.

While Democrats advocated defunding the police, their private police force budget shot up from $375 million in 2016 to $460 million in 2020. After the Capitol Hill riot, expect it to go higher.

Much higher.

The media claimed that the Capitol Police were overwhelmed by a massive riot. Except that the number of violent rioters was, at most, in the hundreds, while the Capitol Police could deploy a force the size that protects entire cities to protect a few buildings from hundreds of people.

Media narratives have blamed President Trump for not calling out the National Guard, but the military should not have been needed to supplement a police force as big as those of Atlanta or Denver, but was not tied down with an entire city to police, and really only had one simple job.
Let Big Tech and the corporate media know they are powerless in stopping the spread of truth by visiting our store now!

And it catastrophically failed at that one job.

When Black Lives Matter rioters, incited by Democrats and the media, besieged the White House, 60 members of the Secret Service’s Uniformed Division were injured holding the line while President Trump and his family were taken to a bunker. 11 members of the Service were hospitalized due to the violence of the BLM riot that Democrats falsely claimed was peaceful.

Much of the heavy lifting was done by the Park Police, another one of the innumerable mini police forces swarming the city, which has only 641 sworn officers spread across three cities.

65 Park Police officers were wounded in the BLM riots and 11 had to be hospitalized.

This roughly matches the 60 Capitol Police and 58 D.C. cops injured in the Capitol riot.

Attorney General Barr listed a figure of 150 officers injured in total in the BLM riots in D.C.

That puts the lie to the false Democrat claim that those riots were peaceful and these weren’t.

The only objective metric for measuring what is and isn’t a riot is the amount of violence involved. Both sets of riots targeted a center of government, the White House for BLM and Capitol Hill for the alt-right, and the BLM riot was objectively more destructive.

In the Capitol riot, Brian Sicknick, a pro-Trump veteran, was struck on the head, suffered a brain clot and died. During the BLM riots, law enforcement officers suffered concussions. None died, but that’s a matter of luck, not restraint on the part of BLM thugs using clubs and bricks.

Despite the heavy toll on the injured officers from the Secret Service and the Park Police, Democrats and the media falsely accused both forces of violently assaulting “peaceful protesters”. Instead of condemning the violence which included bricks, bottles, fireworks, and bodily fluids being thrown at law enforcement officers, Democrats formed a lynch mob.

Rep. Grijalva demanded that White House fencing come down and that the head of the Park Police come down to testify. The Park Police were attacked for using tear gas. The Washington Post assailed a Secret Service officer for using mace against a BLM rioter attacking him.

Unlike the Capitol Police, the Park Police and the Secret Service did not kill a single BLM rioter despite provocations and bodily injuries. The same can’t be said of Congress’ keystone cops who managed to kill an unarmed woman who was not physically assaulting them at the time.

During the BLM riots, Democrats and their media considered mace against a violent assailant an overreaction, but think that shooting an unarmed woman who was not attacking anyone to be an underreaction proving that it’s not about policing, but that leftist lives matters, others don’t.

But the tactical question is why the Capitol rioters got into Congress and the BLM rioters never made it inside the White House. Intruders have gotten into the White House before, but the Secret Service and the Park Police kept the violent racist mob from getting through.

The White House has better security, but the question is why is Congress’ security so bad?

It’s not for a lack of money or manpower. The Capitol Police force is ridiculously huge. It has a massive budget. But it also has virtually no oversight except from a corrupt congressional system. The last time anyone paid attention to the Capitol Police, they were bungling the Awan investigation under pressure from Congressional Democrats. But that’s what the ‘Caps’ are for.

The Capitol Police are a patronage force. Things have improved since the days when joining meant knowing the right people. But not by that much. The level of professionalism of the various D.C. forces is fairly low, and the Capitol Police are notorious as the worst of them.

There’s very little oversight of the Capitol Police whose leadership is notorious for ignoring information requests and complaints. The massive force answers to Congress and it acts less like a police force than as bodyguards for a fairly corrupt organization with no accountability.

But that’s what it is.

When the FBI raided Rep. William ‘Cold Cash’ Jefferson’s office, there was outrage and Rep. Nancy Pelosi signed on to a statement demanding that the feds return the papers that they had “unconstitutionally” seized from the corrupt Dem’s office. The issue at stake was the FBI, which answers to the executive, was not supposed to operate on Capitol Hill and on Pelosi’s turf.

“Not anyone here is above the law,” Pelosi argued. But that was exactly the point. Congress had its own private police and the FBI was not supposed to set foot in her domain.

Now, Pelosi is complaining that the executive didn’t dispatch a force quickly enough to her aid.

President Trump, despite false claims by Democrats and the media, did not tell anyone to attack Congress. Like Pelosi and other Democrats, he supported political protests. The violence began while President Trump was giving his speech and had nothing to do with his words.

It was up to Congress and its private police force to secure the premises and stop the violence.

The Capitol Police failed badly where the Secret Service and the Park Police had prevailed against BLM’s attack on the White House. They failed in ways that are baffling and inexcusable.

The most obvious problem is that some Capitol Police appeared to allow many of the protesters inside. Why this happened is a subject of heated debate, but the range of possibilities include an environment where leftist protesters storming and occupying Capitol Hill had been normalized, sympathy by the police, provocation by some higher authority, or miscommunication. All of this reflects badly on Congress and on its private police force.

The Capitol Police had the manpower and the budget to secure Congress. And there’s no excuse why Congress could not and should not have been secured. There was no brilliant strategy here. And the Capitol Police, despite being praised as heroes, behaved ineptly and showed no coherent plan, some trying to deescalate, while others lashed out violently.

These mixed messages may have been due to the Black Lives Matter effect, a successor to the Ferguson Effect, which left many police officers afraid to resist criminals for fear of losing their jobs and even going to jail. When the White House came under attack, Attorney General Barr and national security officials rallied law enforcement personnel to make a strong stand.

When Capitol Hill came under siege, there was no congressional leadership to respond to it. Instead of taking command of the situation, House members panicked, squabbled, and let their private police flail with the situation while they hid away. The sharp contrast between President Trump and Attorney General Barr in Lafayette Square, and members of Congress waiting for their police force to protect them isn’t just ideological. It’s a basic question of crisis leadership.

Democrats and the media falsely claimed that what happened in Lafayette Square was a photo op for which peaceful protesters were gassed, but it’s how you show leadership in a riot.

Congress waited for their private police force to protect them whose members knew that whatever happened, they would be blamed for overreacting or underreacting to the protest by a leadership that doesn’t understand what they do and is sacrificing them to cover its asses.

President Trump, AG Barr, and administration officials gave clear orders to federal law enforcement to stand their ground. Administration officials then protected officers from the fallout as the same Democrats howling for the heads of Capitol rioters were howling for the heads of Secret Service and Park Police leaders who were holding back the hordes of racist BLM rioters.

Capitol Police members had no sense that Pelosi or that members of Congress were behind them. They were operating in a BLMized law enforcement environment in which violent attacks against police and timid responses to them by the authorities had been normalized. They had no clear orders, they were divided by their own political sympathies and by internal politics.

The Capitol riot should have been just another stressful encounter that would have been contained at the expense of injuring some officers and rioters without breaching Congress.

The media has constructed a false narrative in which the White House overreacted to BLM and underreacted to the Capitol riot. But it wasn’t the White House’s job to protect Congress. That’s why Congress has a force of 2,300 people and a $460 million budget with just one job to do.

The question of why it failed at that job ought to be directed to Pelosi and congressional leaders.

The Capitol riot is Pelosi’s disaster and she’s making the most of it by blaming it on everyone else. Her private police force had the resources and the people to keep out the Visigoths, never mind a few hundred people, and instead turned what should have been a riot into a disaster.

Whether that was intentional or not is a question that pits Hanlon’s Razor “never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity” against Washington D.C. cynicism.

But there is little question that Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have massively profited from their mismanagement, initiating proposals to impeach President Trump, expel legislators, purge Republicans from social media platforms, and to cut off corporate donations to them.

While the media propaganda blares non-stop, heads are quietly rolling at the Capitol Police, but don’t expect that to do anything except lower morale and water down the force even further.

Meanwhile the party of police defunding will see to it that the Capitol Police budget tops those of most major cities, that its ranks continue to swell, and that it remains as incompetent as ever.

And then the next disaster in Congress will also be blamed on someone who isn’t in Congress.

Why couldn’t Congress’ private police force of 2,000 protect it from a mob of hundreds? Don’t ask Congress. Just pay the $460 million, cry over the headlines, and keep your mouth shut.

Gov. Abbott Deploys Texas National Guard, State Troopers to Counter Biden’s ‘Open Border Policies

Bob Price6 Mar 2021

Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced the deployment of the state’s National Guard and State Troopers to respond to the growing border crisis.

Governor Abbott announced Operation Lone Star “to combat the smuggling of people and drugs into Texas” on Saturday. The operation will integrate the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) with the National Guard, Abbott said. He is ordering the deployment of air, ground, marine, and tactical border security assets to high threat areas.

“The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration,” the governor said in a written statement Saturday evening. “Texas supports legal immigration but will not be an accomplice to the open border policies that cause, rather than prevent, a humanitarian crisis in our state and endanger the lives of Texans. We will surge the resources and law enforcement personnel needed to confront this crisis.”

Abbott issued the deployment order following a meeting with Texas DPS Director Colonel Steve McCraw. The two discussed strategies to increase safety and security along the border.

The announcement follows a massive increase in illegal border crossings since President Joe Biden took office in January.

Earlier this week, Democrat Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) announced that Border Patrol agents apprehended approximately 10,000 migrants in the Rio Grande Valley Sector during a seven-day period ending on Wednesday, Breitbart Texas reported.

“We are weeks, maybe even days, away from a crisis on the southern border. Inaction is simply not an option,” Congressman Cuellar said in a written statement. “Our country is currently unprepared to handle a surge in migrants in the middle of the pandemic.”

In Brownsville, Texas, city officials said that six percent of the migrants being released at the bus station to obtain transportation into the U.S. interior are testing positive for COVID-19, Breitbart Texas reported. The Brownsville official said they do not have the authority to prevent those who test positive from boarding buses to travel into the U.S. interior. A worker at the bus station told Fox News they cannot ask passengers for proof of coronavirus test results before transit. Cuellar added, “I urge the Biden Administration to listen and work with the communities on the southern border who are dealing with the surge of migrants.”

Pentagon ‘assessing systems’ after TENS OF THOUSANDS of servers compromised in global Microsoft hack… blamed on ‘Chinese hackers’

By RT Saturday, March 06, 2021

The US military is reviewing its networks following a hacking spree linked to a vulnerability that gave backdoor access to tens of thousands of Microsoft Exchange servers, in a massive attack the company has blamed on China.

“We are aware of the Microsoft threat intelligence center’s report. We are currently assessing our networks right now for any evidence of impact,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby told reporters at a Friday presser. “We’re also taking all necessary steps to identify and remedy any possible issues related to the situation.”

Joint Force headquarters… is coordinating with the National Security Agency and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency on guidance and directives to make sure we can protect DoD networks and IT systems.

Microsoft announced the massive cyber breach on its Exchange email platform earlier this week, noting a vulnerability in its servers had given “long-term access” to hackers while attributing the attack to a group named Hafnium – an allegedly “state-sponsored” outfit operating out of China – with “high confidence.” While the company has since released patches to plug the vulnerability, White House press secretary Jen Psaki warned on Friday that future attacks remain an “active threat.”

Evelyn Rae joins Owen on the War Room to share these strangely racist Google search results.

“This is a significant vulnerability that could have far-reaching impacts. First and foremost, this is an active threat,” Psaki said at a daily press briefing. “We are concerned there are a large number of victims and we are working with our partners to understand the scope of this.”

US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan meanwhile warned in a tweet of “potential compromises” not only for American think tanks and other orgs, but for “defense industrial base entities,” though he declined to offer details.

Cybersecurity analyst Brian Krebs estimated the breach affected up to 30,000 organizations across the US, including “a significant number of small businesses, towns, cities and local governments.” He also said the black-hat group may have infiltrated “hundreds of thousands” of Exchange servers worldwide, citing two anonymous hacking experts who briefed US national security officials on the attack. A Thursday blog post by FireEye, meanwhile, said “US-based retailers, local governments, a university, and an engineering firm” were also swept up in the hack.

The breach appears to have impacted entities well beyond the US, with a Czech government cybersecurity agency stating this week that it is helping affected organizations in the country to secure their networks, while FireEye suggested “a Southeast Asian government and Central Asian telecom” were hit as well.

03/06/2021 06:12 PM US Politics Is Now a War for Survival [by airforce]
And we can't vote our way out of it.

I've written several articles pointing out that we can't vote our way out of this mess. When the November 2020 elections were stolen - literally, through electoral fraud - the conservative side of US politics was (rightly) furious; but they're talking in terms of winning the next election, and undoing the damage. That's not going to happen. The electoral legislation that the Democratic Party is right now ramming through Congress is designed to ensure that it alone wins elections from now on. Anyone else won't get a look-in unless the powers that be decide to throw the other side a bone or two, to satisfy those they consider dangerous or obsessive.

This has led several commenters to talk (in so many words) in terms of civil war, armed resistance, and the like. I've said on more than one occasion that I've seen it happen too often in other parts of the world, and it doesn't solve the problem. It merely compounds the misery for the survivors. However, I fear greatly that it'll be inevitable sooner or later, because those who've seized power are adamant that they'll never give it up.

Perhaps the best summary of their perspective, and the almost religious way in which the progressive left sees its mission, has been penned by The Smallest Minority in his essay "Immanentize the Eschaton!" If you haven't already read it, I highly recommend that you click over there and do so, not just once, but repeatedly. It clarifies the stakes for both sides, and provides an immense amount of food for thought. In fact, go read it before you continue with this article. It's worth your time.

Conservatives may believe that the restoration of our constitutional republic is of overriding importance (and, from a political perspective, I agree with them): but, in terms of that same constitution, the progressive Left has committed high treason. They've subverted and undermined the US political process to steal power from the legitimately elected candidate. They know that if they ever lose power, those who take the reins from them will want criminal investigation and prosecution of all those involved in that electoral fraud - and one of the penalties for high treason is death. For the left to allow the right to win would be to commit at least political, if not a very physical suicide. This they will never do voluntarily.

That's why I get very tired and cynical when I hear conservative and/or right-wing politicians talk about "taking back the House" or "taking back the Senate" or "taking back the Presidency". The "deep State" that facilitated last November's electoral fraud is going to make sure that even if one or more of those institutions changes hands, it will be so emasculated and hamstrung and controlled that it will be effectively meaningless. We've seen far too many RINO's - Republicans In Name Only - who've abandoned their allegedly conservative principles and voted in lockstep with the progressive left on important issues. What makes you think there won't be even more of them in future? There'll be "Trojan Horse" candidates whom the Republican Party lets into its ranks, only to find they're traitors when push comes to shove - and that's only one way in which our political process will be manipulated.

TINVOWOOT. There Is No Voting Our Way Out Of This.

The first step is for us to hold individuals accountable for their deeds. That means we have to watch like hawks, to identify the real "powers that be" behind the electoral facade. We know that former President Obama and his "Organizing for America" are in this up to their necks. The White House and the Presidential administration are staffed with Obama loyalists and their cronies. However, Obama isn't the kingpin behind this. He's just a figurehead himself. We'll need to look much, much deeper than that. We'll also have to identify every member of the executive branch, in any and every department, who either stood by and did nothing to stop the progressive left take-over, or who actively aided, encouraged and participated in it. They've got to go, just as much as the politicians - and they're just as determined, if not more so, to protect themselves.

This will almost certainly "turn kinetic" in due course. The progressive left knows what awaits them if they fail; so they'll embrace violence, and subvert the justice system to serve their interests in order to jail or "disappear" their opponents, rather than allow that to happen. The conservative right knows that'll be their tactic; so they'll adopt a more robust defense of themselves and their positions, up to and including physical resistance to oppression.

I expect a lot of this to play out in the so-called "Red states", where state governments will seek to pass laws restricting federal agencies from unrestricted operations in their state. The central government will, of course, retaliate, and will have the force of federal law on its side. Irresistible force, meet immovable object.

However, much will come down to the individual level. If local officials seek to enforce a progressive left-wing edict, they'll have to be resisted by locals who refuse to allow tyranny to rule over them. Based on my experience in the Third World, I have little doubt that'll turn physical in short order. When officials know that enforcing an unpopular law or dictatorial edict might get them shot or burned out of their homes, they'll be a lot more circumspect in doing so. No matter how much I hate it, that's the reality of the matter. I've seen it in several countries so far, and I see no reason why it won't come to our shores before long.

So, when you talk politics in the USA today, bear in mind that it's not just politics. It's a conflict for survival. If we all come to our senses and seek mutual accommodation, that can be mutual survival . . . but that's no longer likely. The progressive left has gone all-in on seizing and maintaining control, at any cost. They're maintaining a puppet President in power, a man mentally incompetent to and incapable of exercising that office, because they can manipulate him to achieve their ends. They've shut off the capital city of our nation from its people, and are protecting themselves and their institutions behind barbed wire and military guards, to keep the people out and keep themselves in power. Those realities alone should illustrate that they're not going to give up, and they're not going to go away.

There Is No Voting Our Way Out Of This.

Our Founding Fathers had an answer for that. I fear we may have to follow their example.

As NC Renegade summarizes it:

It’s sad what we have allowed to happen to our country. There is only one way to defeat communism, and yes we are now a communist nation, heck I think the Russians have more freedom than us at this point, but we are going to have to fight. This is going to be an elimination event. They hate us and everything we stand for. They want us dead and wiped from history. Personally I hope we get to write the History Books when this is over. Right now it seems all we can do is prepare, but sooner or later someone, some group, somewhere is going to have nothing left to lose soon and then that tiny event, that catalyst, will set this whole thing off.

I fear greatly that he's right. My personal experience persuades me that he probably is.

Onward and upward,

Shakes head, strokes chin,... thinks before typing,...

Folks, what I am about to share may or may not get me grief. I am being advised as I type this , not to.

I consider myself a 1%r , 2%r , and 3%r. I think highly of my involvement in the Militia, and since I have aged out, well as narcissistic as it might appear, I think highly of my involvement with the Militia currently. Since 1996 I have grown from a prepper secret squirel , into a militia man , and currently a Sea Dragon (basically an old guy who knows more and has done more than he will ever discuss). In my interaction as Militia and Citizen I have witnessed and experienced numerous times where because of short sightedness , delusion , ignorance , and yes arrogance, The Militia, my militia (not this site but everyone that has stood up and said Here I Am), has made some poor decisions.

There are some on this board who know what I am about to say will seen coldhearted, yet true. They may or may not acknowledge it publicly. That still does not change the fact.

A True Warrior Will Step Aside If Reality Reveals Their Actions Are Harming Their Cause.

A True Warrior Would Rather Perish Than Be The Reason Their Mission Failed.

A True Warrior Seeks Out Imperfection In His Own Reality Acknowledges It And Refines It To Remove It.

Folks, III% r s , have been as an organization , lost for quite some time. There is a Universal Law, The 1 pound weight held 10 feet away unsupported will generate 10 pounds of resistance. Some would call this over reach. It is the foundation of my teaching. Dont try to save a drowning individual if you don't know how to swim. The Militia, and others in my position (aged out and no longer able bodied as I used to be), will continue to be conquered until they acknowledge and correct this desire to over reach .

Tire Iron, some one I have known for over 2 decades, teaches shoot the target closest to you first, keep yourself between the farthest target and the closest one. I remember asking him why. His answer still rings in my mind. The target closest to you has an unobstructed path a direct line. By placing the closest target between you and the farthest, if you miss you might hit the farthest target. If the closest target shoots and misses you then they have gained a miss.

Now before you trolls out there stick your finger in the light socket and straighten your hair. Yes there is a strategy where you shoot the farthest target first. It is also a last resort for those who know they are about to die anyway and whose goal is to create a hole for comrades to escape through. Stay focused.

Admitting ones inadequacies is difficult. It however is a result of Honesty and Awareness. I am disappointed that These Fine Folks got bested. Their cause is just. They are doing the noble thing so another group with similar goals can take their place.

Our task therefore is to examine their actions with the blessing of hindsight, examine the actions of other groups again with the blessings of hindsight. Identify the inadequacies and replace them with something else. We live in the Information age! In not other era of history has humanity had the abilitiy to access any knowledge of anything. Think about that. The answers are out there. Do what you have always done and you will get what you always have gotten.

I wish them well. Thank Them For Their Efforts. Would welcome them into my home. Pick their brains clean.
