Breaking: Huge Capitol Security failure

One person shot inside Capitol

First protestor shot, looks like a woman, and seems to be the only casualty.

[ Editor’s Note: The Chaos gets ramped up into high gear. Early news showing no preparation to deflect such an attempt, starting with allowing large crowds to gather in front with no major security forces in sight to signal the Capitol was well protected.

Notice in top feature image, there were backpacks galore on the people, where one satchel charge with a five second fuse dropped at the door of both the House and the Senate would have made this a different day. Even an fake protestor could have done this. This was the insanity of have totally insufficient security in the first place, almost like the door was left open for the Trumpers.

There does not even seem to have been a joint command center operating so reinforcement deployment decisions could have been made in minutes, nor even a few hundred riot police within quick deployment range.

Normally the protestors would have been infiltrated to give warning to the Capitol security that the protestor plans were. It looks like a complete failure on that.

One could describe it as almost a stand down. I watched the moment when the crowd sensed the weakness of the then line of cops on the front steps. Someone said “go” and the cops immediately retreated, and it was game over from that point on.… Jim W. Dean]

President-elect Joe Biden condemns the actions the mob that has overtaken the Capitol:

“This is not dissent, it’s disorder. It’s chaos. It borders on sedition. And it must end, Now.” Biden is calling on on President Donald Trump to address violent protests on national television and demand they end. He called on protesters to leave: “It’s not protest, it’s insurrection.”

The DC Mayor’s office and the Speaker’s office have both requested the presence of the National Guard to clear the U.S. Capitol.

…from Politico:

Vice President Mike Pence rejected President Donald Trump’s last-ditch pressure campaign to reverse the 2020 election results, delivering the fatal blow to the president’s attempt to subvert President-elect Joe Biden’s win.

Vice President Mike Pence rejected President Donald Trump’s last-ditch pressure campaign to attempt to reverse the 2020 election results, delivering the fatal blow to the president’s already-doomed attempt to subvert President-elect Joe Biden’s win.

“It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not,” Pence wrote.

Trumper enjoying Nancy Pelosi’s office… and it looks like her laptop righ on her desk. My, my…what wonderful precautions were taken. This is an outrage.

“Friends of mine & people I’ve hired: I don’t have an explanation of their failure,” the former Sergeant at Arms says as law enforcement attempts to retake the Capitol grounds from protesters. “But there was a freaking failure.”

Sen. Duckworth (D- Ill.) on resuming the count of Electoral College votes: “We will continue to have the democratic process, and I won’t yield to these protesters.”

The Telegraph: House and Senate are in recess after Donald Trump supporters breached the Capitol building. It came after Vice President Mike Pence has said that he will not intervene to stop the certification by Congress of Democrat Joe Biden’s election victory, in defiance of Donald Trump.

The statement was released as Trump urged Pence to decline to certify the Electoral College results. In Congress, Republican lawmakers objected to certifying Arizona’s electors, forcing a debate on the baseless fraud claims.

…The DC Mayor’s office and the Speaker’s office have both requested the presence of the National Guard to clear the U.S. Capitol.

…NBC’s Chuck Todd says the Sen. Mitch McConnell’s speech “was the clearest rebuke of President Trump’s behavior we’ve heard from any sitting Republican leader.”

  1. “Ashli Babbitt, who served four tours with the Air Force, and was a “high level security official,” was fatally shot in the U.S. Capitol”. She was married, and from San Diego, CA. I wonder if this will be mentioned on MSM. Sad…This circus side show, staged for the delusional mad man is absurd.
    Look what they’ve done to our country……

  2. Those Zy0 Xristians of whom you speak are fully complicit and persuaded by the Scofield Bible to purchase ‘rapture-suits’! How embarrassing for everyone.

  3. Yea, less security than the average day, on a day that was telegraphed for four years. For cryin out loud. Calling it a failure, is not accurate.

    Also Pence claiming he is “constrained” is a bit telling of what he may do if not “constrained” which is not accurate either. The proper wording for this is “not within my power, and directly against my oath and duty” Spineless, or traitorous ? If I had to guess, both, because his church wants to subvert the law immediately.

  4. The DC debacle is nothing more than a tempest in a tea pot orchestrated by j00-know-who.
    USN Nimitz plus IsRealHell sub’s prowling in the Persian Gulf indicate yet another false flag event which elevate my concerns. Has everyone read Giraldi’s latest posts?

  5. Kept hearing about National Guard on the way, still a no show. Looks like Blue Lives Matter and the police unions were in on the stand-down.
