None of these people can ever again say that BLM is violent. Smashing windows and spray painting is nothing compared to these MAGA supporters. Red flags up all over the place this would happen and all we heard was "but... but... but..." We told you so. LOCK THEM UP! LOCK THEM UP! LOCK THEM UP!

DC is going on a curfew. The airlines are probably worried they can’t staff their planes with crew stuck at hotels.

I watched this on CNN and was dismayed that Jake Tapper kept reciting the term "armed insurrection" constantly did not see any body excluding law enforcement that was armed. If I am wrong please correct me with a source. To call it an insurrection at this point I think is a little sensational. I am getting the impression the person shot was one of the people who breached the capital and was shot by police in the chaos early on. I will reserve judgement till we know for sure.

I am constantly surprised by your need to equivocate these dumb actions. I assume you did the same for the BLM protests.

Likely unnecessary as once the National Guard has a reasonable presence, they will push out or roll over this band of merry goons and they will meet their fate. It's just a matter of doing it as safely and quickly as possible.

Doesn't matter about safely, just restore order whatever it takes and however it needs to be done.

Well by safely I mean the fact that there at one point were still a lot of innocent people in there (and I don't mean any of the "protestors.")

No, he's right, they don't sit around crying for 4 years, they just invade the capital and storm the government buildings. This will forever hang around the necks of Republican party and all of the supporters of that party.

They changed things up, so law enforcement might as well respond likewise.

I didn't see any looting or violence against persons going on in DC today, so I'm not sure BLM/Antifa compares favorable. You don't need a comparison anyway to conclude extremists on both sides are thugs.

Not yet, but because of commander douchebag and his bagettes moronism it was going to take a couple days anyway. All the bagettes making their objections and commander douchebag spouting off on twitter.

It'll happen by Thursday, as expected (expected only due to the douche and the bagettes).

As far as I'm aware republican members have succeeded in delaying certification until their mob could invade the Capitol.

Unfortunately for them, however, their mob couldn't gain hold of the votes, so certification will proceed once order is restored:
https://twitter.com/SenJeffMerkley/stat ... rump-biden

Although even if the mob had burned the votes the states would certainly have provided certified copies quickly and the result would have been the same even then.

This is just an attempted coup, very much as in any "s***hole country" in the third world: The true meaning of "MAGA"!

In my opinion, some criminal/terrorist elements have conveniently taken advantage of this to cause the mayhem at the capitol today. Saw the video of the lady being shot, she seemed to be along with the Trump supporters. So its pretty confusing what happened there, hopefully no one else gets hurt. Its freaking disappointing to say the least.

The law should be forced upon those who have caused violence. No matter who they are.


Isn't it the Virginia National guard that has been sent and not the DC national guard?


Virginia and Maryland deployed their National Guards before DC did but supposedly now the White House has given in and allowed the deployment of the DC National Guard


NYT is now reporting that VP Pence, not Trump, approved the order to deploy the National Guard.

I’m dubious about that from a constitutional perspective, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Pence organised everything and then told Trump to sign or they would consider the 25th. It is notable that Acting Dep Sec doesn’t appear to have spoken to the Pres this afternoon.

There are video images of protesters getting into a punch up with riot police outside the Capitol. DC Police Chief said that the rioters attacked police officers with “chemical irritants”. That is violence.

Some smart ass waltzed out with the Speaker’s podium. That is looting. Or theft, take your pick.

Let’s not pretend that this is a noble civil protest, some sort of sit-in, but no doubt the right wing media will be spinning that line, especially once the late night hosts go on air.

The vote counting session was recessed, so no, not all of the EC votes have not been certified yet. The session will resume at some point when order has been restored. It may be a while before the Secret Service allows VP Pence out of his "secure location", and as president of the Senate, he's necessary for the process to continue.

Since the certification process is spelled out in the 12th Amendment to the Constitution, I assume it has to be completed before Biden can be officially inaugurated. But I'm not a constitutional law scholar or attorney, so that's my educated guess at this point.

Karl Rove:
What happened at the U.S.Capitol on Wednesday afternoon – what we saw on our screens – should sicken anyone who loves America.
[...]
Those who defiled the chambers of the United States House and Senate, parading with Confederate flags and defying lawful orders to stop and disperse are nothing more than common criminals. They have stained America’s Capitol and thereby our national government in front of the entire world and they did it claiming they were doing this for us.

Mr. President, the people who did this are responsible for their vile actions, but you brought them together today, asked them to share your anger and sent them down Constitution Avenue to the Capitol. It’s up to you to end this attack on our government and the rule of law by people declaring they act in your name and for your benefit.

Two pathetically weak tweets followed by a video that didn’t condemn the violence won’t cut it, Mr. President.

At a Press Conference an hour ago, the DC Police refused to admit (1) If the unarmed woman shot in the neck was shot by police, and (2) if she was still alive.

They know, but they would just prefer to not release that information tonight...

According to Dutch NOS TV, the lady shot earlier today in the Capitol building has died in hospital.


At a Press Conference an hour ago, the DC Police refused to admit (1) If the unarmed woman shot in the neck was shot by police, and (2) if she was still alive.

They know, but they would just prefer to not release that information tonight...


Yes Jake Tapper asked Bowser this directly and she punted.

Obviously I am an ocean distance away so easy talking for me, but i would not be surprised if the police dot not yet know who shot. It’s a mess there. No doubt they will know in a few days or even hours as security footage is reviewed, but for now they got more urgent matters to deal with.


Edited to add: found the first link confirming the lady passed away.
