Panic In D.C.

What amuses me about the whole patriotic “invasion” of the Capitol has been the panicked response from the Establishment.  Here are a few examples:

Justice Department warns of national security fallout from Capitol Hill insurrection

“We have to do a full review of what was taken, or copied, or even left behind in terms of bugs and listening devices, etc.,” said Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), raising the possibility that foreign adversaries could have easily infiltrated the crowd that encircled the Capitol.

You mean, apart from the listening devices already in place, planted by (oh, say) Eric Swalwell’s ChiCom mistress or Dianne Feinstein’s ChiCom chauffeur?

But wait, it gets better:

“If this were an organized, fully intent terrorist group — and there were certainly terrorist activities yesterday, but I mean, al Qaeda style — they could have killed a lot of representatives and god knows what else,” Gallego said.

You mean the terrorist who walked around with Nancy Pelosi’s lectern, or the terrorist who was sitting behind her desk?  The whole thing looked more like a college fraternity romp, no matter how scawwwwy it appeared to the timorous at the time.

To be serious for a moment:  from all accounts, there were about 200,000 pissed-off Trump supporters in D.C. last Wednesday, of which about 0.001% decided to “invade” the Capitol and disrupt the oh-so august proceedings of certifying the results of a fraudulent election.  Imagine if that percentage had been, say, 13% — the percentage of Americans who actually fought in the Revolution under George Washington — and if those 26,000 people had been fully armed and quite intent on overthrowing the government?

But they weren’t, of course.  They were, to coin a phrase, mostly peaceful people who just wanted their voices to be heard.

But that seems to have been enough to disturb the Establishment from their everyday job of fucking over the people in this country:

Beyond the security question, this person told me the mob action has been a psychological blow on the DC bureaucracy which didn’t think such an open expression of tangible disrespect for the government was possible. In other words, the capitol mob was a blow to their status, and Washingtonians believe the entire protest represents more than just anger at the election outcome: the disrespectful spirit of the day represents a real threat to their power going forward. This is one reason for the paranoia of Democrats at the moment, and they worry that more such protests are not only possible but likely. Part of the reason there is such fury on the left to run Trump out of office right away is that DC is genuinely afraid of him and his followers.

And here’s a news flash for these pricks:  we’re not going away, no matter how hard you try to suppress us.

One last giggle:

Among other things, the fact that apparently some Capitol Police were friendly with the protestors who entered the building have federal bureaucrats wondering whether they can fully trust their own security personnel.

Just remember, socialists:  these are also the people whom you are going to send out to try to disarm American citizens.

Good luck with that shit.

  1. What amuses me is that the Democrats routinely smuggle Code Pink and other astroturf protesters into the building to make a grand display whenever legislation or nominations are being debated…but when real grass roots Americans show up in force, they run for the hills. They had a similar fit when the Tea Party protests were so much more successful than their bought and paid for rent-a-mobs.

  2. Well…..

    1) “….the DC bureaucracy which didn’t think such an open expression of tangible disrespect for the government was possible.”

    They ain’t seen nothin’ yet; “disrespect for the government” will be regular and constant over the next several years (not that it hasn’t been recently, but it’ll be on steroids now).

    And, RE: “Panic in D.C.” – they better get used to the idea of us living in their heads rent free, and bringing all our furniture with us; we’ll know it’s working when we see back page stories in the Washington Post about Pelosi and Chuckles waking up screaming at 2 AM.

    Life gets different from here on.

    Incidentally, there’s a very good Jan 11 Michael Yon video interview with The Epoch Times’ Joshua Phillipp; Yon details the Antifa involvement at the Capitol building, how to identify Antifa cells and how they operated on Jan 6 (The Epoch Times requires a free membership, so here’s the Youtube link from Instapundit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bIeKj7fZ8U).

  3. Just saw this on FOX News this morning. They want even more armed troops in D.C. than they had when Clinton wat inaugurated, up to 20,000 plus. They are expanding the “no-go” zone even farther out from the White House, and are calling for a ban on all trucks in the city (because Conservatives have military experience and know how to make TRUCK BOMBS,) and they’ve even requested .50 cal. machine guns to protect Gropin ‘Joe.

    Lets look back just six months. Who was building bombs, setting them off, starting fires, looting businesses, etc.? Conservatives or Anarchists? When cities were burning, the Dems in charge refused to call out the Guard, much less called for heavy weapons. Machine guns? Why not mortars? Why not artillery and tanks?

    Think about it. Where, exactly, is the threat to America coming from?

  4. Every law they pass has to be enforced by someone, either civil/financial or criminal. If the enforcers decide not to enforce what have they got. They also have to be protected by someone. What if these protectors decide it isn’t worth their lives, liberties or sacred honor to do so?

    I am hoping we have enough enforcers and protectors become turncoat to make the difference.

    1. Don’t bet on it. The majority of them will continue serving those who sign their paychecks.

      Plus note the instant disinformation shoveled out. They weren’t calling them protestors anymore, they were insurrectionists, terrorists, enemies of democracy, etc. At this point, any LEO that shoots one becomes an instant hero.

      Plus, I know, deep down, there must be good cops out there. Honest men and women with decent background, normal upbringing, no hidden psychological issues, who honestly just want to help others. I’ve just never met one of those. Every LEO I meet reminds me of the weird kid who got picked on in school and got a badge and a gun so all the bullies from his past would finally respect him.

      Apologies to any LEO’s on this forum, I assume you’re the type I’ve never met.

    2. “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

    These morons actually think anyone EVER had a single shred of respect for them? Hahahahahaha, I have never had any respect for any politician or any institution of government, at any level, my entire life! I look down on them as scum, mentally ill freaks who are incompetent and incapable of contributing anything to society. At election time, I choose the lesser of two evils and lived with the consequences as long as they left me mostly alone. Those days are over.

  6. That the bulk of the American people think poorly of their elected representatives is not a new phenomenon.

    “If America has a native criminal class, it’s the Congress “.

  7. They’re just setting the stage for martial law. Once they’ve imposed that then they’ll begin purging Deplorables and sending kids to re-education camps.

    Yeah, sounds paranoid, I know. I put nothing past them anymore.

  8. To paraphrase a magical negro,” Since 2008, your side has put a foreign born fraud in the White House, obviously stolen 2 elections, then gaslighted us about it, spent 5 years committing violence, arson, and looting by your antifa/BLM minions, coerced or blackmailed the few unwilling corporations into going along with your socialist agenda, impeached Trump not once, but twice, for obviously spurious reasons, shut down dissent on social media, forcing businesses to close, banning churches from holding services, again for bogus “science”, caused the deaths of thousands of people by forcing them into facilities unprepared to care for them, putting millions of people out of work, calling us deplorable and White supremacists, or worse, right wing terrorists or Nazis, when we protest your policies that are ruining this country, and I’m certainly forgetting a myriad list of other transgressions. Do you think that makes us less dangerous, or more dangerous?”
