    I'm now convinced...Trump and Russians form an alliance to take over the US. They were able to remain secret because of the asleep at the wheel press, always sympathetic to Trump, the people's House who chose to look the other way and not speak out on his crimes and the Hollywood elite who stayed quiet so as not to alienate the general public. If only someone would have investigated Trump and his family there is no doubt he would have been charged and convicted by now.

    Someone "snuck around a back door" to come open the front door. People were leaving through a bashed window...in front of tons of cops.
    Cops weren't doing anything inside.

    I saw less than 20 cops initially guarding the entire front entrance.
    Wonder how many missed work yesterday....

    We have become Venezuela. With our new socialist government it is only a matter of time before our currency crumbles.

    So what you're saying is the media is lying again? Absolutely shocking

    When neighborhoods and lives are being destroyed, when people die, when law enforcement officers are being attacked, when cars and buildings are set on fire... the democrats call it a peaceful protest

    When people walk into the Capital as described above, when nothing is destroyed save for a couple of windows, they call it a revolution

    They are truly THE SCUM OF THIS EARTH

    I'm as Conservative as anyone on this board but Trump lost the election and it's time to move on. In four years, let's take to the battlefield and win the Presidency but for now, it's time to accept our electoral process results and move on so we can attempt to get some stuff done together.

    I didn't like what I saw in NYC, Kenosha, Seattle, Portland this summer. I didn't like it then and don't like it now. Equally, I don't like what I saw yesterday. Any protest that ends in violence or destruction is not a protest for me.

    So now is the time where my Conservative and Liberal friends at the RX express their disgust for any violent protests with no excuses. We should condemn them, not make excuses for them and call them out.
    Welchers are the worst.

    Well, I'm just expressing my views as I see them. Yesterday was embarassing. Our country is not a country of lawlessness and foolishness which is exactly what we saw play out on our TVs. It's also the same thing we saw in Minneapolis over the summer.

    I thought about it for a minute or two yesterday. If you were one of those criminals in the Capitol building yesterday, do you think they stopped and pondered what in the world they were doing in the building? What was the goal? Did they think they were overturning an election or something?

    I think a majority of Americans these days just lack basic critical thinking and decision making skills and you see that play out with their actions.

    I didn’t really see any rioters at all. There were a couple of instances but that’s it.
    Everyone was very mindful of everyone else.
    Cops were constantly gassing the crowd from the very start before the breach occurred.
    Like I said, there just wasn’t many of them out there.

    I saw one cop get pulled into a giant crowd. He lost his shield...but then people consciously surrounded him to get him up and back without anything happening to him. Except not getting his shield back.

    People were using the Biden stands to actually get to the capital area where doors were opened.

    I would also add that the stereotyping has gotten old. The people today that stormed the capitol no more represent everyone that voted for a Republican, then someone that engaged in the violent protests this summer represents everyone that voted for a Democrat.

    A client of mine shared a similar sentiment with me when she saw some guys in a pickup truck this summer driving around honking their horn and trying to antagonize people with a Trump Flag and a Confederate flag posted on both sides of the vehicle. She said those are not the people that represent her, nor does she want to be associated with that, even if they may all vote the same way. I would concur.

    These are fringe groups that tend to get the headlines with acts like these and many also pollute internet forums with the same foolishness.

    Come on man, be honest with yourself. I saw hundreds of dirtbags storming the Capitol building. Those folks are rioters hell bent on creating damage and chaos.

    I agree with all of this. I don't condone or act like most of these fools that support Trump even though we vote along the same party lines. I understand them but don't act like them if that makes any sort of sense.

    I saw hundreds of them walking in and then out peacefully as well.
    Right by cops
    Didn’t hear about much damage inside. Did you?

    All the staged photos inside were ridiculous. Still nothing violent.
    I would say it was a handful of people doing it. Out of hundreds of thousands.

    Come on man, you aren't being honest with yourself.

    There were hundreds of thugs in the building. They caused damage and fought with police officers. I'm not going to go back and forth with you on this topic because you're wrong and the photos and video are everywhere.

    Just condemn their actions and be the bigger man. The very fact they were even in the building is wrong and not peaceful.

    Thankfully there’s a little bit of humour in this story, which has been hard to find in such an awful day in American politics.
    As you can see above, the original image posted to Twitter was paired with the caption: “Via Getty, one of the rioters steals a podium from the Capitol.” Now obviously, the caption is referring to Getty Images, where the image comes from, however, some people online thought that Via Getty was the name of the actual rioter, which is definitely something.
    One user wrote in response: “BOOM! WE got one of these MAGA CHUDS! Via Getty look him up I bet he flunked out of high school and fucks his sister! Via Getty that is his name let’s get this guy and serve justice.”

    Just look at these dumbasses....

    You think those things haven't been on going for the last 4 years?...It's not like that shit happen over night, Trumps relationship with Russia and Putin looks less than "enemies".
    Joke is what a mess the administration made of foreign policy..If this were a race we've been lapped over the past 4.

    Now if they burned down their neighborhoods and maybe killed some police officers, instead of scaring Pelosi, libtard nation would be loving them


    After four years of treasonous bullshit, I'm laughing. You reap what you sow. There is no coming together for me and democratic leaders or their media. May their souls rot in hell. Absolutely no empathy from me

    Peace in the ME, gave 1 million Obama refugees their homes back in Syria, bombed Syria and Russia steps down, cracks down on China without any of the predictions of bad consequences happening, gets out of worthless treaties with Iran, gets out of the Paris Climate Accords that no other country on the world was making commitments to, makes Mexico secure their southern border and pay for it


    The best foreign policy in fucking history. But don't worry, democrats will fuck that all up again, the press will lie about it, and liberals will be all giddy sgain
