Hopefully those who pay attention will learn the lesson imparted to them. They will have a greater understanding of what they are actually dealing with. I say this because they obviously were not paying attention before, otherwise they would not have been so foolhardy as to hand their lives and futures over as they did.

On the brighter side, it did indeed showcase the true face of of our "Leaders"View attachment 2478
Let us never forget the absolute terror that AOC had to endure when Ted Cruz almost murdered her

Clearly just a protest that got out of hand, like thousands of others.

There was no insurrection. The protest was no worse than hundreds of violent events by Antifa and BLM all summer long, killing cops and destroying cities. The OP's friends.

Carl Nichols, a federal judge appointed by former President Donald Trump, has declined further examination of a charge raised by an accused Capitol rioter alleging that federal officials should also arrest racial justice protesters from Portland, Oregon for committing similar crimes against the government.

The accused rioter, Garret Miller, claimed that he was the victim of "selective prosecution." As proof, Miller pointed to the Department of Justice's decision not to issue mass prosecutions against Black Lives Matter (BLM) and anti-fascist (Antifa) rioters involved in demonstrations in Portland, Oregon during summer 2020.

Miller asked the court to compel discovery and grant an evidentiary hearing on his claim. In other words, he wanted additional time to explore his claim and then hold a court hearing to lay out his case of "selective prosecution."

However, Nichols denied Miller's request in a December 21 decision.

"There are obvious differences between those, like Miller, who stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, and those who rioted in the streets of Portland in the summer of 2020," Nichols wrote in his decision.

"The Portland rioters' conduct, while obviously serious, did not target a proceeding prescribed by the Constitution and established to ensure a peaceful transition of power," the judge added. "Nor did the Portland rioters, unlike those who assailed America's Capitol in 2021, make it past the buildings' outer defenses."

That sounds like a precedence...I wonder if future rioters will take note?

"That the government allegedly dismissed cases against some (but not all) Portland rioters, or offered others (but not all) favorable plea deals, does not show the federal government is pursuing its claims against Miller and others like him because of a difference in politics," Nichols wrote.

Nichols noted that part of the reason that the DOJ prosecuted more rioters is that the January 6 attack happened in broad daylight. Also, many of the riot's alleged crimes were captured on video, taken by law enforcement officers and the rioters themselves. In Portland, much of the illegal activity occurred at night with substantially less video evidence.

:) That's nice....Has nothing to do with my response but....

That sort of thing is kinda obvious....Isn't it? :rolleyes:

Sadly, those who admit non-violently protesting voter fraud on Jan 6 are being rounded up and torched by the vengeful democrat Garland, while none of those black-clad leftist rogues who smashed windows, doors, and furniture are even identified or charged.

"Those weren't Trump supporters," said a man named Phil from Kentucky, claiming the only people breaking in were dressed all in black.

"So they were black helmets, black clothes, black backpacks who started busting the windows first," said Janie, a nurse from South Carolina, who said she saw members of Antifa and Black Lives Matter committing the violence. She also claimed the Trump supporters were actually trying to fight them off. But when we mentioned we were on site that day, she admitted that she never actually came close enough to the Capitol to see any violence.

We let her know that the Proud Boys were dressed in all black that day, having planned to forego their usual colors of black and yellow in order to be "incognito."

"I didn't know that," she said.

But the thread attempting to blame Antifa and Black Lives Matter was repeated by former President Trump himself as recently as two weeks ago. In an interview with Candace Owens on Dec. 21, he also said it was FBI informants instigating the crowd.

But we know who was there.

So far, more than 700 people have been charged. The defendants are largely white, and 13% of them have ties to the military or law enforcement. More than 100 of them have alleged ties to known extremist or fringe organizations, like the pro-Trump conspiracy theory QAnon, the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers, and the Three Percenters, a part of the anti-government militia movement. But the bulk had no ties to extremist groups.

Tampa Bay attorney Bjorn Brunvand represents several people who were at the Capitol that day, including Robert Scott Palmer, who was recently sentenced to five years in prison for assaulting law enforcement officers with a fire extinguisher, a wood plank and a flagpole. His is the longest such term yet.

"He believed in the lies that were being professed by former President Trump and his accomplices," Brunvand said.

He said Palmer took President Trump's words that day as a directive. That he did it for him. And now he feels abandoned.

"Not only did he not show up, he's not there for anyone who were there and supposedly were there to save democracy and save the country. When in fact, they were doing quite the opposite," Brunvand said.

I notice you fail to note how the OathKeepers are an FBI outfit. The organization isn't long lived either.

With the help of Ray Epps and other FBI informants, of course.
But mostly with the help of Trump, of course, who told his crowd of rabid followers that Mike Pence didn't "have the courage to do what needed to be done" by refusing to certify the election results, and then telling them to march to the Capitol and "fight like hell to take your country back." No FBI informants were needed to spark the Capitol riot because Trump and his gang had it covered.

Riots are never spontaneous, and your denials notwithstanding; the FBI planned this riot.

Trump planned this riot, the "Stop the Steal" organizers planned this riot, the Oath Keepers planned this riot, the Three Percenters planned this riot, the Proud Boys planned this riot, MAGA planned this riot, and QAnon planned this riot. The FBI just went along for the ride.

After firing so many FBI agents, the DOJ and the FBI went along for the ride, and so did Mueller too *sarcasm* . The FBI wanted to get Trump on tax evasion and couldn't do it. You are full of it.
