There may have been plants who deliberately instigated storming the Capitol Building just as others placed skids of bricks and broke windows to encourage the Black Live protests into looting. The object here is far deeper than the people the press is reporting. The Democrats are now calling this an “insurrection” and demanding that Pence invoke the 25th Amendment or they will impeach Trump by January 20th? An insurrection is defined as a violent uprising against an authority or government. Yet many are saying that the Capitol Police opened the barricades to let the Trump protesters in.
I have been saying all along, even when Ronald Reagan was elected, in Washington the republican establishment said they would have to train him. For nearly 40 years of working with people in Washington, it was always evident – they do not like an outsider. Trump was not a politician and the press was trying to manipulate the 2016 election for Hillary. They focused on Trump 90% of the time and gave little air time coverage to other candidates. The decision was to push Trump because they assumed he could never win. When Trump won, they were blaming themselves and set out on their mission to hate everything Trump had to say. Even the Republicans were against Trump – i.e. John McCain and Lindsey Grahm smashed his phone in protest of Trump.
The chief of police of Capitol Hill has resigned. Look at this photo, It appears staged with these crazily dressed people. But more importantly, it is being used to demean every conservative who supported Trump against the socialist New Green Deal coming. The purpose of allowing the people into the Capitol was to create this image of the people who support Trump are crazy radicals because they know 80 million people voted for Trump. They now need to demoralize them and suppress them and their ideas to further the take over of the United States with this new Agenda.
Already, the alternative energy groups are rallying and telling everyone fossil fuels are history. Others keep spinning wild conspiracy theory claiming it is not over and somehow Trump will prevail. Is this to keep the violence coming? Trump, on the other hand, has come out and said that this was a “heinous” attack on Capitol. He also called for “healing and reconciliation” and an “orderly transition of power.” This is over – there is no path to victory for Trump! When the Supreme Court refused to hear the Texas case, they showed their cards – it was a royal flush and they won – no intervention regardless of the allegations. There was no Trump card.
The protests surrounding the 2020 US election reached a climax on Wednesday afternoon. Nevertheless, it had been steadily brewing for weeks, and its implications will last for years way beyond Trump. Trump played into this because he made a fatal mistake. He had no idea that his attempt to train the swamp would backfire in the form of a covert coup. Every person Trump took on in his administration was a seasoned politician. Their loyalties would NEVER lie with him – Washington will be there long after he is gone. They would NEVER bite the system that feeds them.
The goal from the outset was to control Trump. The more he tried to buck the trend, the more they conspired against him. What he did not realize is that there is no Constitution. That is something people invoke to make a point but they never abide by its fundamental intent – to restrict the power of government. All the Bill of Rights has been flipped by the courts to make people think they have rights, when in fact they are NEGATIVE restrains upon government. Look at any of the Amendments. Take the first!
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The very words “Congress shall make no laws” is a restraint upon government, it is not your right to free speech, it is a prohibition against Congress from infringing upon free speech. They have inverted the Constitution to where you must prove you have a right. Those in government IGNORE the Constitution and do as they like and it always our burden to say they did something wrong.
Trump thought that he had won more votes than any incumbent and that the election was stolen. Our model projected it would be a razor thing election, but Trump should have won. Nevertheless, I have warned that the computer was right and wrong in the 2000 election. It projected Gore should have won. It was handed to Bush. Later it was shown that Gore should have won. So the computer was correct, yet wrong.
I warned that there was a global coup against Trump and this was not merely Trump v Biden. After everything is said and done, the evidence will show the election was stolen, but there will be nothing anyone can do. Trump’s mistake was thinking there is some ethical morality in Washington. There is none! “Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!” he tweeted of the protest to mark the day Biden’s win would be certified. That was classic Trump thinking he could fight when the system that was determined to purge him from office.
After pro-Trump protestors stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, the president has suffered several high-profile resignations from his administration and growing calls from Democrats for him to be removed from office. Meanwhile, the DC federal prosecutor claims he may indict Trump for the riot. All the resignations are the people showing that they all along were loyal to the system – never Trump.
The entire object of this has been to discredit all conservative resistance and to render that futile. The Republicans will not be there to defend the people. They are there to defend the system. The future going into 2022 will see a third party rise. Who will be at the head is anyone’s guess.
