GOP Leaders Try to Stop Capitol Hill Riot


Nancy Pelosi’s personal Select Committee has selectively leaked a number of communications from Trump allies to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows as the Capitol Hill demonstration was evolving into a violent riot.

Consistent with Democrats’ and the media’s bogus political narrative, they spun this as evidence that those close to Trump were concerned about the violence and wanted Trump to intervene to stop it asap.  The media then spins that information into a prosecutorial accusation by claiming that the immediate concern was inconsistent with their later “playing down” the riot.  

The latter, of course, is a propaganda lie.  Those on the right – including Republican leaders and officeholders — did not play down the riot – but rejected the Democrat’s specious claim that the riot was a failed insurrection advanced to overthrow the government and install Trump as a dictator— and that the coup plotting is still going on.

The media is filled with people advancing the narrative that what happened on Capitol Hill was an insurrection … sedition … treason … coup attempt – all words used repeatedly.  That, however, is the initial lie upon which they piled the latest lie.

First of all, I have not heard anyone on the Republican side praising the riot – although President Trump, himself, was inconsistent and waffling in his public statements and actions.  It seems from the latest information, everyone else being accused by the left of promoting the attack on the Capitol were concerned and condemning the riot — and subsequently called for the rioters to be prosecuted.  They were repulsed by what they were seeing.

Yes, there were some on social media who thought keeping the rioters in jail without bail was a bit extreme or that they had patriotic motivations – but those of that opinion were small voices amplified for political purposes by the media.  Most references to “patriots” were directed to the peaceful demonstrators –not the rioters.

Ironically, many of those who the left-leaning media accused of supporting the mislabeled insurrection are now shown to have been sending messages to beg President Trump to do what he could to stop the rioting – mainly, give a quick and definitive statement that those rioting were not representing him and that they should cease and desist immediately.

Why it took so long for Trump to issue such a statement is a fair and open question.  But it is clear from all the communications released by the Select Committee that there was no broad-based Republican effort to violently overthrow the government.  

Even Trump’s son, Don, Jr., sent messages to the White House that his dad needed to step in to end the “sh*t” that was going on on Capitol Hill.  And that brings up another interesting point.  On both CNN and MSNBC, the anchors and panelists were fairly consistent in their negative observation that even Don, Jr. had to send the message to Meadows instead of his father.

As is so typical, that was a pure ignorant speculative claim – designed to create more mud for the mudslinger media machine. To his credit, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough slapped down both his partner, Mika Brzezinski, and the shows hoary panelist, Mike Barnicle, for claiming that Don, Jr. had not communicated directly with his father.  “We just do not know whether he did or not,” according to Scarborough.  CNN, however, played that petty propaganda ploy without conscience or correction. As a footnote, you should also keep in mind that Barnicle was kicked off the Boston Globe for making up fake stories in his reporting.  Just saying.

If you remove all the media propaganda fog, you can see the situation much more clearly.  Republicans – and even many non-Republicans – saw a very shameful riot by a lot of people who are allied to President Trump and arguably some “trouble makers.”  Republicans and conservatives – like myself – want to see those who committed crimes of violence on Capitol Hill arrested and tried.  

Where we strongly disagree with those on the left – and all those hyperbolic and partisan media interpretations (spin) – is that the riot was not the touchpoint of a planned or impromptu conspiracy to illegally overthrow the government.  It was never a threat to democracy or an imminent danger to the Republic any more than all those other violent, destructive and deadly riots against the citizens AND government that we saw repeatedly erupt in our major urban centers.

As also in the case of the iconic urban riots, the failure of those in charge of providing adequate protective measures to discourage potential rioters played a major role in the evolution of the riot.  We have consistently seen how riots escalate in size and violence when police are not prepared to engage — or worse are ordered to stand down.  The best way to prevent protests and demonstrations from turning into violent riots is through an overpowering show of force – and swift police action at the first signs of violence.  

A very important part of any investigation of the Capitol Hill riot is finding the answers as to why the Capitol Building had such pathetically poor protection in view of all the advance knowledge and warnings.  The Select Committee claims to be exploring that aspect, but do not expect it to give it much serious consideration – and virtually no consideration by the media.

From all the communications recently leaked or issued by the Select Committee, it is perfectly clear now that there was no grand conspiracy of Trump “people” to overthrow the government in a violent coup.  Quite the contrary.

For some reason, Democrats and their media cronies seem to believe that they have hooked a big fish with this insurrection spin – and fearmongering claims that the Republic was about to turn into another banana Republic.  Such nonsense.  

The left can get its base – those affixed to MSNBC – to believe, or at least parrot, the propaganda, but it seems increasingly clear that the greater majority of the American people are not buying the Democrats’ brand of snake oil.  The test will come in November of 2022, when the people will speak.

So. There ‘tis.

    At this point any logical thinking person has come to understand that the politics of the left can no longer be trusted. Absolutely everything that comes from Biden Pelosi Schumer and their minions has been shown to have very little basis in reality. No reasonable person felt the country was in danger although the actions of those who were showing their frustration did so in an unacceptable manner. This is a result of the democrats nonstop attack on their beliefs and way of life. I awoke to the ridiculous outcome of an election I knew would be stolen regardless of the narrative the media portrayed and I too was angry and frustrated. Never in my 60 years have I witnessed such a relentless smear campaign against a sitting president with no facts to back it up. I personally didn’t have any particular love for Trump but I also recognized that anyone that could cause so many entrenched lifelong politicians to literally lose their collective minds was clearly on the right path to ending the strangle hold these people had on American government. Trump’s presidency exposed our government on both sides of their hypocrisy and absolute unwillingness to represent the citizens of this nation and how dedicated they were to preserving their own power. They proved that an outsider in Washington would not be tolerated by the status quotient. They have sold out any credibility and integrity they might have once had and you can believe many if not most Americans walked away with a very bad taste in their mouths after 4 years of constant lies and actions all designed for one purpose and that was to destroy a duly elected president that wasn’t willing to compromise when it came to representing the people who voted for him. Aa we are seeing the truth is inevitable and it can’t be hidden forever. We know the entire collusion story was a ploy and we know that none of these specious claims have any basis in reality. What we as Americans can take away from this entire experience is that “We The People” have had our eyes opened to the swamp that is Washington and once that pandora’s box is opened it can not be closed. The future of this country is now in the hands of these Political hacks and the results of their incessant games is eminent. They simply can not repair the damage they have done to their own credibility along with exposing their failed liberal policies. The democrats have sold their souls in their unhinged attacks on what most Americans considered a real opportunity for change of direction in the US. So I can not say what the future holds for Trump is American politics bit he can rest assured his presidency has made a lasting impact on the future of American politics that will last for decades. He awakened us to the realities of a corrupt media and more importantly he forced the left to expose themselves as the socialists they truly are. We know understand that this is a war on the American way of life and we know understand complacency won’t stop the push towards socialism. Those who supported the democrats can no longer deny the foolish and evil attacks on their country and they have begun to understand the true costs of socialism on their own lives. So president Trump should continue to fight for America in whatever capacity he chooses but Americans have learned or relearned a very valuable lesson in trusting leftist policies.
    God Bless America

      After experiencing communism for 11 months I wonder just how many good people will not make sure they not only vote “in person” in 2022, but will volunteer to work at the polls and demand to be Certified Election Observers that will NOT be refused entry during all polling hours. The democRAT communists will NOT interfere with or manipulate another election…..EVER. Mail-in voting must be banned altogether except for certified absentee votes.

    From what I saw on videos and cell phone recordings even to call it a “riot” is pure B.S. It didn’t even come close to the stuff the media called “peaceful protests” in Portland & Seattle by Antifa and BLM. It was also NOT an insurrection. It could barely even be called “trespassing” because Capitol Police held the doors open. . But of course anything the democRAT communist party supporters do is always perfectly okay because our government is now too “woke” to be honest about anything. Communism and America cannot co-exist therefore communism must be purged from our sovereign territory by force if necessary. That is why we have a Second Amendment to be used to refresh the Tree of Liberty when required. Thank you Mr. Jefferson.
