This thread is to discuss and post any news, tweets, etc. related to the January 6, 2021 Capitol Riot/"Insurrection Day" narrative. MSM outlets are now out in full force attacking Tucker Carlson & Revolver News for their reports on questioning the FBI's involvement with the Capitol Riot.



 
Not gonna lie, I was pretty close to going to Washington DC for the protest that day. I knew our country was in peril. Although that was not my time to fight and I'm glad I didn't go.

I considered it too but thought better and was tied up. This goes to show you you should always be skeptical of anyone you haven't known for decades and even then. I also consider every major figure as compromised. How do these people fall for this stuff?

That Greenwald tweet about favorable opinions of govt agencies is an eye opener. The IRS??? Almost 70%??? Who likes paying taxes????

I sure don't like paying taxes and I've never really had a favorable opinion of the IRS, especially after they started targeting conservatives. I was on the Trump train until this year after I started learning a lot more, especially from following the information flow here on this forum. As my father told me, never trust politicians..

The irs is the only government institution that I do trust. I hate them but still think they are the only sector of government that is halfway competent.

What always strikes me as an interesting example of Liberal doublethink and/or hypocrisy, is that the MSM consistently deny the humanity of both Trump supporters and police officers (for example during BLM riots), yet constantly talk about the four Trump supporters and one police officer that died during the "Insurrection" as if it were a bad thing. Of course, to the MSM it is actually a good thing: five "subhumans" died, and their deaths are now instrumentalized to advance the Liberal narrative. A win-win for Liberalism.

I thought mistrust of FBI and CIA was a commonly held belief among people regardless of which political spectrum they're on.

This is totally bizarre! No way the polling listed above can be accurate. I can't wrap my head around anyone trusting these institutions.

In addition to the polling data above, liberals strongly choose government when asked to choose between them and Republicans.

What's the supposed Schumer "improvement" that he sold Manchin on today, reportedly at least?

Via ZeroHedge
The Hill reports that Manchin said Tuesday that he will vote in favor of advancing a sweeping election bill, after striking a deal with Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on a compromise proposal.

"We worked it out," Schumer told reporters.

In exchange for voting "yes" on Tuesday, Schumer said that if Democrats are able to advance to floor debate on the bill -- something they won't be able to do because of across-the-board Republican opposition -- he will give Manchin a vote on his proposal as an amendment.

“Over the past month, I have worked to eliminate the far reaching provisions of S.1, the For the People Act – which I do not support. I’ve found common ground with my Democratic colleagues on a new version of the bill that ensures our elections are fair, accessible and secure," Manchin said in a statement.

"Today I will vote ‘YES’ to move to debate this updated voting legislation as a substitute amendment to ensure every eligible voter is able to cast their ballot and participate in our great democracy," he added.


Under the deal, Manchin will provide the 50th Democratic vote on advancing the For the People Act later Tuesday.

However, the vote - expected later Tuesday evening - is still expected to fall well short of the 60 votes required to move ahead as the GOP seems just as united to vote against the "reforms".

Edit.

First person sentenced in the January "riot"...


Anna-Morgan-Lloyd.jpeg


An Indiana woman became the first person sentenced in the January riot at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday after entering a guilty plea and telling the court she's since educated herself with movies such as “Schindler’s List.”
...
In her plea, Morgan-Lloyd wrote she's “ashamed” of her participation in the rally-turned-riot, adding that she’s learned from her actions using movies and books recommended by her attorney — attaching plot summaries of “Schindler’s List” and “Just Mercy” as evidence.

“I’ve learned that even though we live in a wonderful country things still need to improve,” Morgan-Lloyd wrote. “People of all colors should feel as safe as I do to walk down the street.”

Her attorney, H. Heather Shaner, in court called Morgan-Lloyd the "least culpable" among the thousands of rioters.

"She was very willing to learn about American history," Shaner said. "When I offered her a book list, and the movie list, she got a library card because she lives in a remote part of Indiana."
