The White House is our house. It belongs to the American people. Yesterday’s insurgency raid affects us all. We should be upset to the nth degree.
I have been predicting such an attack for some time. I have written in my Key West Lou blog several times of my concern. I have also spoken to the danger in at least two blog talk radio shows.
As part of today’s blog, I would ask that you also read yesterday’s blog if you have not. In order to get the total picture. Titled: Attila the Hun, Sherman, and Trump. 1/6/21. www.keywestlou.com.
We have all seen yesterday’s carnage. Properly described, an insult to the American people. The news on TV, internet, and media kept us well abreast of things as they were happening. I am not going to bore you with repetition. What I am going to do is share some brief thoughts. Mine, those of persons who have contacted me, and those expressed in media reports.
Dark day for America / Comparable to 9/11 / Chaos / Protesters really insurgents / Trump’s comments to the protesters before they headed for the White House: “I’ll be there with you…..walk down to the Capitol…..You’ll never take back our country with weakness.”
Rudy Giuliani: “Trial by combat” / Donald Jr.: “We’re coming for you and we’re going to have a good time doing it.”
Five killed / One a woman shot by police / No other information available re the deaths / The conduct that of a banana republic, not a democratic republic / Improvised explosives were found on Capitol grounds.
Number arrested by various police agencies difficult to determine / Whatever the number, arrests insufficient / No organization, no leadership by authorities / Authorities warned but were not ready / Heads will roll.
Passions of protesters intensified by falsehoods and false hopes / Trump lit the match/ Trump fueled the event / An insurrection, not a protest / Trump used Presidency to destroy trust in our elections / Protesters thugs / Rioters should be prosecuted to full extent of the law.
Impeachment too slow and arduous / Amendment 25 also too slow / Mob violent / Republican Party in disarray / Trump’s protesting mob received white glove treatment / Compared to police tactics against BLM in previous Washington protest.
Trump has committed treason / Trump’s actions leading up to the attack and on the day of the attack seditious / Capitol Police poorly prepared / Arrest Trump and his key followers / No bail for Trump / Trump has money and ability to leave the country.
Today another day.
Enjoy your day!
