COMMENT: These people posing for this photo certainly do not represent conservatives. One even has a mask. The Davy Crocket guy has the bull horn to lead the charge. Something is not right.
REPLY: This breach into the Capitol Building was a false flag. There was no doubt about Trump supporters there. The guy in the Davy Crocket outfit was a QAnon supporter Jacob Anthony Chansley, who is said to be extreme right-wing. Adam Johnson was arrested for carrying-off Pelosi’s podium, but he did not take it from the building. These people being caught seem to have viewed this as a college prank posting their pictures on social media.
Nevertheless, there are reports that Antifa was there posing as Trump supporters who were the first to breach but had vacated quickly while hiding their faces. Still, John Earle Sullivan is a Black Lives Matter terrorist who has advocated for an armed revolution on social media was one inside the Capitol Building and he claims he took part in the illegal breach of the building as part of an effort to understand supporters of President Donald Trump.
Others are saying that since Black Lives Matter was there, then Pelosi and Schumer should also be impeached since they incited riots all over the United States. There is a great disparity between how the Black Lives Matter rioters were treated when looting and burning down buildings verse the Trump supporters. This whole thing is merely inspiring divisions even more. What Trump did was by no means an impeachable offense. His statements do not qualify for calling for an insurrection. Besides that, they are protected speech just like those in Congress. How many Democrats made excuses for the burning of cities and all the protests? Even a legal professor who is not a supporter of Trump concurs – this is not an impeachable offense.
People from Germany are immediately calling it a false flag which they should know. False Flags are deliberate actions used to blame an opponent to gain power. Historically, Hitler used a very famous event that was the origin of the term “False flag” back in 1933 to reinforce his power. The German False flag used by Hitler was known as the Reichstag Fire. Hitler had a problem. He won less than 35% of the vote. The Reichstag Fire was an arson attack on the German parliament in Berlin on February 27th, 1933, one month after Adolf Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor of Germany. Hitler’s government claimed it was set by Communists because the 1918 German Revolution which installed the Weimar Republic and resulted in the hyperinflation was a Communist movement which even asked the Russian to take Germany.
One man was prosecuted named Marinus van der Lubbe, a Dutch council Communist, who was simply found near the building. A German court later decided that van der Lubbe had acted alone as was the case with Oswald in the Kennedy Assassination. After the Reichstag Fire, a Decree was passed that the Nazi Party used as evidence that Communists were plotting against the German government. This event was critical in the establishment of Nazi Germany. The very term Reichstag Fire in Germany has been ever since used to refer to False flag actions perpetrated by the government to promote their own interests to gain more power and infuriate the public for retribution that has ALWAYS resulted in the loss of civil rights necessary to catch the conspirators.
President Trump campaigned in 2016 on ending “ridiculous endless wars.” When I was invited to listen to Trump privately at his Palm Beach, Florida, property Mar-a-Lago, he said the same thing. We were in the middle east fighting over borders that have been disputed for 1,000 years. ONLY John F. Kennedy was against the war. I believe the CIA et al took him out so they could enter Vietnam. Even Johnson remarked in 1965: “For all I know, our Navy was shooting at whales out there.” They fired 249 5-inch shells, 123 3-inch shells, and four or five depth charges, according to Navy records. They never hit anything. Over 50,000 Americans die for a war we could not win and was never necessary.
They have lied to start every war from weapons of mass destruction to the fact that Germans sank the Lusitania because the US was secretly using passenger ships to move weapons to Britain. I have stated on personal knowledge that the terrorists from the first World Trade Center attack drew pictures of planes crashing into the towers on the wall of their cells in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center in advance of 9/11. They knew what they were doing and let it happen.
Then there is Operation Northwoods, which was a proposal of the Department of Defense. The Joint Chiefs of Staff would involve CIA operatives to commit acts of terrorism against American civilians. They would then blame the Cuban government to justify a war against Cuba. The proposals were rejected by the Kennedy administration and have long been part of the reason people support the theory that the CIA is responsible for the killing of Kennedy.
The State Department blew everyone away after admitting that they officially and intentionally deleted several minutes of video footage from a 2013 press briefing to mislead the press over the Iranian nuclear deal. Those in power are all about just them. They are constantly showing that they cannot be trusted on anything. Yet, we are risking the lives of our children with wars that are manufactured for political gain all so they can in their mind rule the world.
Obama, who has made a mockery out of the Nobel Peace Prize, attempted the standard lie to invade Syria, but the American people rejected it because they became tired of the lies. There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and Iraq had nothing to do with the 9/11 attack even in fake allegations. The failure of Obama to “sell” the Syrian war to the American people noted the shift in confidence from Public (trust everything) to Private (trust nothing).
Wherever there is military action involved, there are lies to further another agenda. The benefit of a Private Wave is that people begin to distrust the government. However, the war cycle turns up and that warns of a rise in civil unrest that can even go as far as a new age of revolution if the government does not stop trying to manipulate the people for nonsense.
The latest information coming from Italy interfering in the 2020 election also involved a military defense contractor. Like Kennedy, Trump was against endless wars so they had to put an end to Trump. I lost just about every friend from high school to Vietnam. What did they die for? Communism collapses all on its own because it is unsustainable.
History is written by the victory. They will rewrite the history of America and paint Trump as some sort of anarchist just as Cicero wrote the fake news calling Gaius Julius Caesar was a horrible dictator when he crossed the Rubicon and the Senate fled because they had no support of the people who then cheered Senate’s flight from Rome because they were corrupt oligarchs.
History repeats because human nature never changes no matter how much we progress technologically. So many people think history is irrelevant and you will often hear that this time it’s different. I have found no exceptions whatsoever and I have really searched very hard by studying the rise and fall of empires, nations, and city-states.
Flavius Claudius Julianus, known to history as Julian II, was born in Constantinople around 332 AD, the son of Julius Constantius who was the half-brother of Constantine the Great. His father was born to his grandfather’s second wife, Theodora. When Constantine the Great died in 337 AD, his son, Constantine II launched a midnight Palace Massacre whereby all persons who might be his rival for the throne and were not the direct descendant of Constantine I’s first wife were slaughtered. Fortunately for Julian, he managed to escape the Palace Massacre only due to his extremely young age. Julian was restored to the imperial favor as he grew and was given the rank of Caesar (Vice President) on November 6th, 355 AD, about the same time he married Constantius’ youngest sister, Helena.
Yet the Palace Massacre left a deep mark upon his character whereby he saw Christianity as just another cult and the preachings of thou shalt not kill meant really nothing when power was at stake or swearing oaths in the Supreme Court today or to sit in Congress. As a result, Julian II was dubbed by theologians as Julian the Apostate rather than acknowledge Christianity did not restrain the murder of his family.
Julian’s coinage changed when he became Emperor. He grew a beard which was taken as a sign of being a pagan whereas Christians were clean-shaven. His coins would often display pagan motifs as well. Julian began his reign by throwing off his Christian cloak and declaring that all religions would be tolerated. He gave especially large donations to the pagan causes. He dismissed his Christian teachers and ended state subsidies for the church. He then took an active role in organizing pagan worship throughout all the provinces.
Julian’s own philosophical beliefs led him to idealize the reigns of Hadrian (117-138 AD) and Marcus Aurelius (161-180 AD). He described the ideal ruler as being essentially primus inter pares (“first among equals”), and thus not above the same laws that applied to everyone else. Julian frequently attended the Senate, participating in debates and making speeches. He was opposed to the traditional royal court operations that were used by his predecessors as inefficient, corrupt, and highly expensive.
Julian cut the bureaucratic waste by dismissing thousands of servants, eunuchs, and duplicated officials drastically reducing the cost of government for the taxpayers. He went as far as to prosecute corruption in government establishing the Chalcedon tribunal under the supervision of a magister militum Arbitio. He prosecuted former officials under Constantius including the chamberlain Eusebius who ran the royal court finding them guilty and sentenced to death. Yet Julian did not attend these proceedings that some argued meant he did not approve of these actions yet he took no steps to prevent them.
Julian also adopted the philosophy of Thomas Jefferson whereby he tried to reduce the federal bureaucracy expanding state and local authority at the expense of the imperial bureaucracy as Julian sought to reduce direct imperial involvement in urban affairs. For example, he went as far as to return city land owned by the imperial government, and city council members were then compelled to resume civic authority.
Julian was fatally wounded by a spear thrown by perhaps a Persian but perhaps by one of his own men during a minor skirmish. He made the mistake of surrounding himself with too few men because he did not trust the bureaucrats.
