    Where was the analysis of CHAZ/CHOP Seattle when 4 black people including 2 under 18 years old were shot to death? Lefty weirdos just like those conservative weirdos took over a part of America. In this case the lefty weirdos took 6 blocks of a major city in the Western World. Surely this was unprecedented? Nothing was done for 3 weeks. Nothing of appropriate proportion was said on the news or shows like this. Ignoring news breeds conspiracy.

    I am scared that FBI and national guard will have met their match with the Trump terrorists. I honestly do not feel confident that FBI and national guard will be able to protect us. Not only that but while our attention is on the war within our country RUSSIA CAN ATTACK.

    In 2017 I predicted if he lost, he’d start a insurrection. I have been expecting it for four years. As the day got closer, I watched him publicly plan it, instruct his paramilitary to go wild. I’m a retired nurse in the UK. How come everyone is acting surprised if I 3000 miles away, years ago, knew it for a certainty?

    The World Trade Center Association’s mission in 1969 was to spread worldwide that the market and the economy are the foundation of freedom and morality.
    Now we in the West must all learn that the market does not automatically guarantee freedom, but that morality and freedom must be the foundations of the market. This means that the free market must also serve society, at least by avoiding the excesses and extremes that have caused the division of society and made Trump possible in the first place. The massive division between rich and poor, the massive injustice has brought us here.

    Yep, American paranoia about being attacked by outsiders has taken on a new reality. It’s other Americans you have to fear.

    yes, the loss of accessibility is sad. don’t kid yourselves, Americans privacy has been ruined by the “Patriot Act”. Much long-term damage to our way of life, our constitutional rights. Patriot Act must be abolished.

    Wow! The president kicked back, and watched it unfold on TV. He didn’t immediately send help, Wasn’t it Pence who had to authorize backup? Trump wasn’t whisked away to his Bunker by the Secret Service. Who knew that he wasn’t in danger? I saw the pictures with Guiliani and the terrorist with the Horns…Were they invited to the “Wild Tme” by him, and the president? Who gave these tours on the 5th? It’s starting to look like an inside job. This needs a Bipartisan Commission to be fully investigated .

    Congressional Republicans are appeasing terrorists…because that’s their voter base, that’s what they have cultivated, nourished, exploited, and profited from.

    Elmer Fudd’s always trying to convince me he just wants unity.
    What he really means is that he wants to eat me.

    The Obsidian Order. The Tal Shi’ar. Section 31. Republican Domestic Terrorists dumb enough to record themselves attempting to overthrow the gov’t…

    *sigh*

    It seems we can’t even learn from TV history, much less our own…

    Republican cult: “We respect the flag, the Constitution, and law enforcement…that’s why we use the business end of the American flag as a lethal weapon to brutally beat police officers while committing sedition, conducting a terrorist attack against the Capitol in insurrection!”

    Toxic Trump is the snowflake melting down because his coup against his own government failed.
