“We are a part of history.” Words shouted by John Earl Sullivan from inside the Capitol January 6. Sullivan the 26 year old black founder of Insurgence USA. A social justice group set up to protest police authority in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
Sullivan first helped others scale the outside wall to the second floor. Exclaiming as he did, “Let’s burn this shit down.”
Then inside, “That’s what I’m sayin’, break that shit.”
Finally, “We accomplished this shit. We did this together. Fuck, yeah! We are all a part of history.”
Another who “gained” fame is John Francis Stager from Arkansas. His picture all over the media. The insurgent who was running around carrying a large American flag who beat a Metropolitan police officer with the flagpole. The officer was guarding the entrance to the Capitol.
The mob stormed the building, grabbed the officer, dragged him down a flight of stairs, and forced him into a “prone position.” He “remained prone on the steps” as Stager and friends “forcibly and repeatedly” beat him on his head and body with “various objects.”
Stager shouting during the beating: “Everybody in there is a treasonous traitor. Death is the only remedy for what’s in that building.”
Then there is Alabama’s Joshua Blod. He said, “The spirit of God wanted him to storm the Senate.” Also the following confluted statement” “Plead the blood of Jesus over it.”
Blod claimed, “They stole my country.” He said afterwards, The crowd went crazy when they “found out Pence turned on us and they had stolen the election like officially.”
The proceeding examples of the extreme nuts the U.S. has bred in past years.
As the days pass, it is becoming increasingly clear that certain lawmakers may have conspired with the Capitol attackers in placing legitimate Congressional persons and their staffs in legal peril. The conspiring having taken place the day before the attack.
If true, they should be sought out and charged with the most serious seditious crimes carrying the longest sentences. Benedict Arnolds one and all.
Trump’s reputation has dropped swiftly the past 2 weeks. He is toxic and no one wants to be close to him in any fashion.
Many companies have withdrawn their support. Many prominent persons who previously supported Trump, also.
Ariel Pink, the Indie rock artist, is one who now suffers because of his past support of Trump.
Ariel was on the Tucker Carlson show. Sorrowfully complaining. His label has dropped him. He told Carlson his support of Trump now “leaves me destitute and on the street.” He claims he has been “stripped of his livelihood…..People are so mean.”
Substantiation once again of the Biblical words: “As ye sow so shall ye reap.” In today’s words: “If you go to bed with a dog, you wake with fleas.”
It was announced yesterday that Trump and his entourage will leave Washington the morning of January 20 on Air Force One. Trump heading for his new home at Mar-a-Lago.
Trump’s toxicity and actions over the years have left many Mar-a-Lago neighbors unhappy with Trump. They do not want him as a neighbor. Palm Beach County is looking for a way to end Trump’s agreement in 1993 giving permission to run a business at Mar-a-Lago. The agreement does not provide for Trump or anyone else to live there.
Every nation having a problem with coronavirus has the elderly listed near the top of the priority list to receive shots first. Except, one. Indonesia.
The elderly are at or near the bottom of the list. Vaccines are being reserved for those under 60. Considered “young” by Indonesian standards.
Two reasons therefore. Indonesians claim there is a lack of research as to how the vaccine will affect older recipients. They believe vaccinating the young first is the best way to dampen widespread transmission of the virus. Younger persons are the largest group spreading the virus.
Two years ago, a tiki hut vessel appeared on Key West waters. A boat. Merely a tiki hut with a small bar beneath it. A good way to enjoy a drink by day and to view the sunset in the evening.
Someone stole the Tiki Hut boat. Twenty four hours later the thief was arrested. Stone drunk!
He is Tyln Earl Morlang, a 36 year old from Missouri.
He apparently spent the night on the boat. Whether he got drunk while on or before not known yet. Could be while on. It was a cold evening. He might have consumed a few bottles of alcohol to keep warm.
He did try to start a fire to keep warm. A series of small fires. One in a coconut, others in plastic cups. None took sufficiently to remain ongoing for very long.
He’s lucky he did not burn the Tiki Hut and kill himself during his night long cruise.
This day in 2009 a happy and proud one. For all concerned.
I am sure you recall.
U.S. Airways Captain Chesley “Suny” Stullenberger was flying an Airbus 320. The plane hit a flock of birds just after take off. Both engines were disabled.
Sully accomplished the impossible. He landed the plane on the Hudson River. All 155 persons on board were saved.
Enjoy your day!
As an aside, Captain Sully urged Americans to vote Trump out.
On the happy side Joe is put in money, tax payers money , to bail out big cities retirement funds. So State workers, Police, Teachers, Chemist, engineers lawyers, etc from States like NY can still come to Florida to retire thanks to workers in States like Florida which do not over spend. Again thank you for supporting the over spending elected officials in the big cities so the frugal folks of Florida, Texas can pay through their federal taxes. Thank you Joe.
Sandy is a Racist troll, who has no relationship with truth or honesty. He posts here on Lou’s blog mostly rants and hate filled MAGA themed distortions, often incoherent rants. He loves far right conspiracy theories and lately is trying to tell people he’s not a Republican.
I agree that Sandy can be irritating and somewhat incoherent at times, but racist? What makes you say something like that?
That would be because of his frequent racist comments over the past several years. He has also been VERY demeaning of women. Not a very nice guy at all.
He can be pretty vulgar too. He once made reference to my Mother’s Vagina on Lou’s blog.
Very much not a nice person.
Last night I was watching a news video showing National Guard troops installing razor wire on the new fences that surround the Capitol building. So now we have razor wire fences, street barricades and 20 thousand troops in place to insure that Biden’s inauguration is not disrupted by protesters. Those who still wish to peacefully protest what they believe to be a wrongful transition will no doubt be arrested and labeled as terrorists.
Welcome to Venezuela. Viva El Presidente!
So, why is this different than when Trump put up razor wire and non scalable inner walls around the White House, when there was no evidence of any impending riot or physical violence?
Or, why is this different from when Trump used aggressive tactics and tear gazzing with the aid of the nation Guard in Lafayette Park in Washington DC when there was no evidence that the protesters there would be anything but peaceful?
For which YOU never objected to his uncalled for, heavy handed repression.
Because there is widely reported probability by, the FBI and other official government agencies, that various terrorist organizations have threatened and are planning violent demonstrations, including azzazzinations in Washington, during the inauguration.
And because we are only ten days since the Capitol was attacked in what Federal prosecutors are now officially describing last week’s azzault on the U.S. Capitol as a “violent insurrection that attempted to overthrow the United States Government.” Where 5 people were killed.
Can you please tell us why you posted such an idiotic question with you post?
Do you think of your self as a troll, an azzhole or just a jerk?
No. Actually, I used to think of myself as an American. But now I think of myself as an oppressed citizen of a third world country. Because, as you point out, America has been tilting toward anarchy for years now. And the presence of guns and uniforms and barricades and razor wire in our streets is an obvious sign of lawlessness and rebellion usually found in countries far less developed than ours. The heavy military presence in the US Capitol is just an extension of what has gone before, and one more step on the road to hell.
You ONLY have Trump and his band of blind followers to thank for that and that weirt Cheney dude before him. But to post that you’ve lost your freedoms because we’re shutting down the inauguration, seems overly myopic and attempted political nonsense.
Are you spelling wrong so that government workers do not put you on the no fly list? Hiding your words from the deep state.
Sandy – just shut up!
There goes the 1st and 2ed amendments. Yes jeff
No Sandy, and no, my comments in no way effect the 1st and 2ed amendments – or what ever you THINK you are talking about. But it is clear you do not know what you are talking about and are willing to blab on and on anyhow. You really are a pest.
Whtch what you say there bare eyes watching this blog. See how fast the FBI cough them in DC but not at the other riots this summer. The swamp is watching everything.
Sandy you political toad. The riots in Portland alone rounded up people, sometimes innocent people as it turns out but NOTHING like you are trying to twist things. I suppose because you are a total lter. How about the Boogaloo killings in Oakland and the Santa Cruz shootings too, both Boogaloo. How about the right wing wacko’s posing as Antifa in both Minnesota and Portland. Or are you forgettign those and all the other false flag arrests, because you don’t want to talk about them and only about things that DID NOT happen but better fir your constant lies?
The Trumps should be stripped of their Citizenships and deported.
That takes a trial and we have not had a trial yet.
Just a lynching and who is next?
Sandy you troll, you are so full of sh*t. Name the lynching please, and your source for that nonsense, or just STFU.
We real Americans have work to do to get this country back to a working democracy.
define “Real Americans”
Are they ones who let the dead vote?
Let votes be counted in the dark?
let some one harvested votes?
Shut down free speech?
Please list here ANY incident or evidence of dead votes counted (or even found), apart from those 3 Republicans in Pennsylvania. Or for that matter, any illegal votes counted in the dark or any case or actual evidence of so call harvested votes.
If you cannot do that, please offer an appology for lying and a promise not to post further lies and garbage.
While you are at it, please explain why you accept any of Trump’s repression of free speech with his requirement, threats and prosecution of free speech by government employees, especially with his requirement they sign NDAs.
If you can’t, or won’t do that. please STFU
Oh, and a real American is someone who doesn’t lie on Lou’s blog
Lynching, a form of violence in which a mob, under the pretext of administering justice without trial, executes a presumed offender, often after inflicting torture and corporal mutilation.
No trial yet, Just like China
Sandy you dishonest troll, You were asked to “Name the lynching please, and your source for that nonsense.”
Lynching, besides the racial implications, is a serious implications, you have been throwing around with abandon. But instead of answering the question asked, you avoided that and gave a dictionary definition of the term instead. We all know the dictionary definition but no one but you apparently knows who specifically was lynched and that was the reason the question was asked.
Wy can’t you answer the question asked? Is it because it has not happened and you were lying about it? Why are you actively and aggressively trying to spread such obvious lies. Do your children and grandchildren know you are such an outright lier?
Let me ask again – Name the lynching please, and your source for that nonsense.
Trump wrecked this Country. It will never be the same or recover.
Unconfirmed sources report that Eric Trump was so depressed about the family failure that he locked himself inside a closed garage for over an hour with his Tesla running.
But they moved to Texas not tax free FL
Sandy, your really don’t know what you are talking about do you?
Why isn’t Trump in jail awaiting his trial? He caused innocent people to die. Instead he is busy planning a grand exit from DC.
What a cruel joke.
Trump is going out with a bang. He is giving himself a 21 gun salute on Inauguration Day. I guess that the dumber you are, the higher you go in the GOP.
It looks like Trump is mentally incapable of fully comprehending what happened during the attack on the Capitol by his fans on the 6th.
More likely he just doesn’t care. Comprehension, is not something he does.
I have been a long time Republican, but I am giving up. And I’m throwing out my ‘My Pillow.’ That guy gives me the creeps.
Impeachment is too good for Trump. Prison time.
