The morning started out just like any other Trump rally: beach balls being tossed around, complete strangers talking, venders selling their wares, and people dancing. Not a formal dance, or even a rave, but rather the type of movements one does when listening to the Village People, Elton John, and Michael Jackson, while the temperature is in the mid 30s and the wind is blowing.
It was a good time, yesterday morning and early afternoon, with the crowd filling the space from the White House Ellipse to past the Washington Monument. The crowd was eagerly anticipating the speakers, especially Donald Trump, Jr, Rudolph Giuliani, and finally the Orange One himself.
Trump laid out in detail, state by state, the voter irregularities - both statistical evidence as well as the direct evidence of fraud. These irregularities are more than large enough to contest the results in the swing states, and therefore warrant investigation. But asking journalists or law makers to do their job is like asking the FBI to do theirs. These irregularities have been completely ignored by mainstream media and the suppression of this information is more proof that the product of those news outlets is only "news" in the Tokyo Rose sense of the word. Trump did a very good job presenting this information, though he did cut his remarks short because it was just so cold.
He stated several times that the rally wasn't about him, it was about election integrity - that if these irregularities were not addressed and the perpetrators punished, then we will never trust the outcome of an American election again. He's right, and the politicians who accept the Electoral College results are betraying the American voter and not just Trump.
Trump further stated that some of his advisors asked him to concede and try again in four years. He rejected this advice because the present fraud must be addressed. He's right about that, too. Each delay is just time for those who perpetrated or benefitted from this fraud to cover their tracks and consolidate power.
At no point did either Trump or Giuliani encourage violence. Anything to the contrary is a bald lie supported only by intentional fabrication as pablum for those who would rather trust the media instead of their own lying eyes.
At the conclusion of Trump's remarks, we proceeded to the Capitol Building. The crowd was so large that both Pennsylvania and Constitution Avenues were filled.
No one was expecting trouble. Trump rallies, despite the propaganda, are extremely peaceful affairs. People of all races and all religions attend Trump rallies, particularly at yesterday's rally - in contrast to BLM rallies, which are attended mostly by guilty white liberals. Even people who hate crowds are comfortable there. Our rallies are permeated by a sense of good will and mutual respect, and attendees routinely bring along their young children and dogs. There were representatives of several militias present, and none of us were prepared for subsequent events.
There were some who carried and later wore gas masks, however...
By the time I reached the Capitol Building, people were already at the uppermost level, where the dome meets the roof. In preparation for (somebody's) inauguration, bleachers were being erected on both the left and right of the building, and people were scaling those. The steps in front were filled with people.
We didn't know it at the time but a 6 PM curfew was declared. The curfew was never once announced over loudspeakers by the police, nor was the death of at least one of the people who penetrated the building. Phone service was interrupted and Internet connection was spotty, and we had only rumor and hearsay, not actual information. We certainly didn't learn of Pence's decision to ignore the voter fraud, which was probably a good thing given the mood of the crowd.
The police action occurred as follows:
At least four sharp shooters and spotters were positioned in at least two locations on top of the Capitol. They were acting as overwatch.
The police made their appearance at the highest part of the building and began lobbing either tear gas or CS gas at us, purely as a "softening up" move. They then cleared out the highest part that the occupiers gained, using gas to disperse the majority of the people and arresting the remainders.
They then lobbed CS at the bleachers on the left in order to clear them. They arrested at least one person. They repeated this with the bleachers on the right. This was done in an extremely methodical fashion.
Finally, they got to the lowest level, the part with the Capitol steps. They repeated the same process there to clear us out.
In typical Trump-supporter humor/irony, we began chanting "hands up don't shoot" and "I can't breathe."
I absorbed what I assume was CS on three occasions. The first was when I was trying to help a man who absorbed quite a bit more of the gas. I told him not to rub his eyes. He insisted on using water to wash the chemicals out of his eyes, even though that prolongs the burning. I got caught when the wind shifted direction.
The second time (the worst of the three) was when I was helping a man who was blinded from the gas. What alerted me to his plight was that while everybody was either walking or running to get away from the gas, he was still, just standing still, facing away from the Capitol. He wasn't completely frozen, but he was mostly standing in place. When he did move it was towards a step over which he would fall. I walked him away from that step and had him sit on one of the low walls found throughout the Capitol. He later told me that he was a USMC veteran, and I have never seen a more disappointed man.
The third time happened just because I wasn't upwind from the gas.
While CS may not go well with whiskey, it should be a good mix with vodka. It is certainly good for the sinuses.
The crowd was indignant over the police officers' actions, mostly over our removal from the Capitol steps. After all, it was us who supported them while Antifa and BLM burned and looted cities. It was us who supported them when Antifa and BLM attacked them and firebombed their cruisers. It was us who opposed all attempts at defunding or disbanding them.
We demanded that they uphold their oaths and reminded them that refusal to do so makes them traitors. This fell on death ears, ears which were hidden under black helmets with face shields attached.
As I was leaving, one person with a megaphone was imploring us not to hate the police for all this. He said that we can't hate them for just doing their job, and that we would be as bad as Antifa and BLM if we did criticize them.
I confronted this man, and said two things to him:
First, the "just doing my job" excuse may sometimes be appropriate for pre-adolescent burger flippers or gas station attendants, but is never fitting for a law enforcement officer, whose salary is publicly funded, and who must be held to far higher standards. Decisions of conscience are never above anyone's pay grade.
Second: both sides in any conflict take actions designed to do harm to the other. What makes one side good and one side bad is determined mostly by what they're fighting for. Antifa and BLM are fighting for the servitude of socialism, for permanent revolution, and for the termination of the American culture. They pine for a Looking Glass world where black is white, where men can get pregnant, and the ones who can't and are of a certain skin color are by nature evil. They're not afraid of doing dirty work, but they are also not above getting others to do their dirty work.
We're fighting for freedom and the American way of life, and we do the work ourselves.
Antifa chants "death to America" while they loot and burn innocent businesses. Yesterday at the Capitol we were reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, singing "the Star-Spangled Banner" and "God Bless America."
For anyone who believes that all political movements are equivalent, consider this: there were plenty of opportunities for us to set the Capitol Building on fire - the bleachers were partially covered with cloth and canvas, they had wooden decks, and there were numerous small wooden construction projects underway. Each of those could have easily been set ablaze. But we did not set them on fire. Why didn't we? Because we are intelligent enough to separate the founding ideals of our country from the politicians and bureaucrats who claim they are managing it but are really plundering it.
I exited when the police officers were about five feet from me. The reason I left was this: when facing an opponent with a tactical advantage, there is nothing wrong with breaking contact... so long as this is followed by consideration of lessons learned, and the willingness and intention to use those lessons in subsequent engagements.
Yesterday's events didn't occur in a vacuum.
We have been called racists, Nazis, sexists, homophobes, transphobes, Islamophobes, and deplorables for the last 12 years. All of these claims are made with zero evidence against the vast majority of patriots. Being called a Nazi or a racist used to be grounds for a fist fight. Now it has become not only acceptable but common. It became that way thanks to the anonymity of the Internet, through the intellectual sugaring-over implied by the term "microaggression", and, honestly, due to the politeness of those on the Right. It is espoused repeatedly by Barack Hussein Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and numerous athletes, all of whom are the epitome of poor and oppressed people.
Add to this the China Flu lockdowns, arbitrary business closures, and pointless mask regulations dictated by certain governors with zero legislative approval.
Add to this the way that tech companies have been allowed to censor conservatives, deplatform them, and fire their conservative employees, all without consequence and all with the protections granted by Section 230.
Add to this the way that the "justice" system turns a blind eye to the actions of Antifa and BLM, not only last summer but going all the way back to January 2017 when rioters destroyed DC buildings as well as a limousine driven by a Pakistani immigrant.
Add to this the Republicans' move to deny giving Americans $2000 in China Flu relief and instead giving us $600 while funding numerous pork projects - all while sending money to Pakistan, Bangladesh, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Curacao, and Trinidad and Tobago, exactly none of which are American states.
The cherry on top of this shit sundae is the fraudulent election, and the way all the people who could and should do something are refusing to act. They refuse to act purely for political opportunity, not realizing that the outcome of all future elections will be determined not by the American people but rather by Dominion Voting Systems and similar companies.
These events impact all Americans, not just those on the Right. Those on the Left or in the middle mostly have yet to experience this, but their time is coming.
This modern-day Bill of Particulars is the context of yesterday's occupation of the Capitol Building, and it will determine our foreseeable future.
One outcome from this is that patriots must reevaluate our relationship with the police. Almost all of us generally favor the police, have some type of "Blue Lives Matter" sticker, or a "Support our Police" yard sign, or even a US flag with one of the stripes painted blue. We continued to support them even when they allowed Milo Yiannopoulos to be chased by rioters from the campus of UC Berkeley, the home of the Free Speech Movement. This support continued through the riots they allowed to happen in Portland, Seattle, and other major cities. The police have been given the moral equivalent of a blank check, and they cashed it.
Another consequence is that the Republican Party has been given a well-deserved black eye. Between the stimulus bill debacle, their willingness to throw President Trump under the bus, and their unwillingness to investigate this fraudulent election, they have failed everybody in this country.
Speaking of Cuckservatives, Vice President Mike Pence, the largest cuck of them all, could have stopped all this. There is more than sufficient evidence indicating that the 2020 election was massively fraudulent, and what Pence needed to do was state that fact and initiate a thorough audit of the votes, a review of the voting equipment, and a review of the governors that implemented mail-in voting without the required legislative approval.
Instead, that coward caved. He was working under the mistaken assumption that he has a future in politics. He doesn't, but he surely arranged to have a golden parachute.
One must ask whether agents provocateurs were involved and patriots must now be on guard for this possibility. If patriots were acting alone, would we have occupied the steps of the Capitol? Yes, and proudly so. Would we have scaled the bleachers? Maybe so, maybe not. Would we have broken into the rotunda? Absolutely not.
A good friend of mine compared yesterday's events to the Storming of the Bastille. If agents provocateurs were involved, then the proper parallel would be the false flag operation at Gleiwitz. Either way, the establishment response will parallel the German's reaction to the Reichstag fire or the American response to 9-11.
Ultimately, yesterday's events supplied direct proof that the Right is willing to fight for what we believe. We have been in a war in this country with Leftist ideologies for a long time, yet only one side was fighting. Very much of what the Right does is merely posturing and bravado, unfortunately.
This allowed journalists and media personalities to slander, and businesses to commit the fraud that is deplatforming. It allowed district attorneys, judges, and politicians to commit fraud and treason. This is all because they are all cowards who are afraid of implied or actual intimidation from the woke mob. They knew that the Right would only verbally defend them, and that the Justice Department wears rose-colored blindfolds.
Yesterday's events (regardless of involvement by any agents provocateurs) prove that we can indeed fight. We put all of the establishment on alert - they can no longer act with impunity. We eliminated the safe space afforded by the middle ground, and that their time is up.
