Xiden says penetration of Capitol greatest threat to our Democracy since the Civil War.

Greater than 911? Greater than Oklahoma Bombing? Greater than the stolen election of 2020? Greater than the mass surveillance by the NSA? Greater than JFK assassination? Greater than the attempted Coup by the FBI of Trump?

This sounded like a no knock warrant. Wow 7 guns pointed at you at 6 in the morning.

Parents of Ashli Babbit will file civil charges over violation of her constitutional rights.

Am I the only one who thinks the office had his finger on the trigger and had a negligent discharge? Or was it just murder?
I hope they win. When the shooting occurred, I said to hold off on judging the officer. There are different rules of engagement for them, especially if they are protecting certain VIPs or areas that are designated as vital to national security. It would not surprise me that Pelosi's office was so designated or she was if she was still in there.

As time went by and they tried to hide the shooting, refused to name the officer, and refused to say how it was justified, I came to the conclusion that the officer must have been wrong and there was a coverup going on. Ms. Babbit certainly deserved better than that.
This has to be a joke? She had no business entering or “storming” the capital anyway.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

Parents won’t win anything.

Lawmakers propose $200 million for new Guard quick reaction force to aid Capitol security

https://www.militarytimes.com/news/pent ... -security/
The District of Columbia Air National Guard would receive $200 million to set up a quick reaction force of service members prepared to respond to any violence or threats on Capitol Hill under a $1.9 billion security supplemental unveiled by House leaders on Friday. [The $1.9 billion package] also includes nearly $521 million for unanticipated pay and operations cost for the still-ongoing Guard deployment to protect Congress in the wake of the attack on the Capitol building in January.

Those reimbursement costs nearly match the amount of money in the measure for future grounds security projects around the Capitol complex, to include retractable fencing designed to prevent a large surge of crowds onto the grounds during future protests or events.
So lemme get this straight. We, the taxpayers, are paying over $520 million for new fencing (and other physical security measures) to provide extra security to the capitol grounds and our congress critters because a bunch of unarmed people broke in (well, they did find two handguns carried in DC without a permit and one spear). We've also already spent almost $520 million since last January to keep the National Guard at the capitol grounds to protect our congress critters. And now we'll pay $200 million to establish a new quick reaction force to protect our congress critters. That's around $1.6 billion, so there's another $300 million in there somewhere.

We have 100 members of the Senate and 435 in the House of Representatives, for a total of 535 people. At $1.9 billion of taxpayers' dollars, that's $3,551,402 per person. This doesn't count aides and pages and administrative assistants, of course. So maybe it comes in at a little less than $1 million per full-time employee. How much did you spend last year on additional security hardening for your home or business?

The capitol complex is a group of 20 buildings; Senate chambers are in the north wing and chambers for the House of Representatives and the offices of Congressional leaders are in the south wing. Each chamber has a sergeant at arms who serves as the chief law enforcement officer.

The capitol complex already has its own, dedicated police force. The U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) are charged with protecting Congress' members, employees, visitors, and all facilities. The USCP has about 2,100 sworn law enforcement officers plus another 200 or so civilian employees. Congress recently approved an increase to the USCP's budget, which increase was already a done deal and not included in the new $1.9 billion package. Its annual budget was increased from $462 million to $516 million. Guess who pays for that, too.
About the 2015 Congressional hearing following a string of embarrassing incidents on the part of the USCP, former congressman Richard B. Nugent (R-Fla.), a retired county sheriff wrote: "What that hearing really showed was the ineptness in the organizational hierarchy, the inability to get a handle on the agency, their lack of transparency and accountability to anybody. If you let things like that go, there’s larger questions to be asked — what else are you sweeping under the rug or not paying attention to?"
The entire grounds of the capitol complex covers 175,170 square feet, or 4.02 acres...or 0.00628 square miles. Let's be conservative and say there are as many as 10,000 people working at or visiting the capitol grounds at any given time, and that the U.S. Capitol Police have a total of 2,400 employees. Their $516 million annual budget equates to $215,000 per employee; $51,600 per capita served; and $129 million per acre of area policed.

The annual budget of the Dallas Police Department is $509 million, and that cuts police overtime by $7 million. That budget covers 3,640 sworn officers and 556 civilians for a total of 4,196. Dallas proper covers 383.4 square miles (245,376 acres) and a population of over 1.3 million. So Dallas's budget breaks down as: $121,306 per employee; $392 per capita served; and $2,074 per acre of area policed.

The Houston Police Department's 2020 budget was $837 million. HPD has 5,256 sworn officers and 976 civilian employees for a total of 6,232. Houston proper covers 669 square miles (428,160 acres) and a population of over 2.3 million. So Houston's budget breakdown is: $134,307 per employee; $364 per capita served; and $1,955 per acre of area policed.

Yet the USCP can't do its job and is so underfunded that we have to spend $1.9 billion to shore up the inadequacies? So let's defund all police agencies across the country except the agency that protects out congress critters? And let's build fancy new walls around the 4 acres of the capitol complex while immediately stopping the Trump wall and opening up our southern borders to an illegal immigration crisis the numbers of which we've never seen before? Immigration agents caught almost 179,000 people trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border last month...and it's anybody's guess as to how many crossed without being caught. Compared to arrests in April 2020 under Trump, border arrests last month were up over 1,000%...that's not a typo. The number of unaccompanied minors taken into custody in April was 17,171; in March it hit an all-time record high of 18,960.

Bottom line: Democrats want as many new voters as they can cram into the country (and of course any new legislation that seeks to simply define extant minimal voter identification is labeled with outrage as "voter suppression"); they absolutely do not care about your personal safety or that of your family; but they are very willing to spend quite literally billions of dollars of your tax money to help help protect themselves from the plebeians and rabble.

Happy 2021 national tax day, everyone.

when do they start arresting the capitol police that OPENED the secured doors and guided the so called insurgents into the building, along with their camera crews to take selfies with capitol police?

I’ve been seeing photos of the Capitol doors. They have magnetic locks, easy to unlock from the inside, impossible to open from the outside.

thats what i have been saying since day one. they are hardened magnetically locked doors. the same as we use in embassies world wide. they were opened from inside. not from people yanking on them from outside. the level of corruption within the capitol police and those who coordinated this is pretty deep. nancy left the house chamber a full 4 minutes before first "protester" ever entered the grounds. We were watching cspan live and just happened to catch the missing in action, it was most likely 6 5or 6 minutes as i was not watching her 100% of time

What Is The FBI Hiding About The DC Pipe Bomb Suspect?
There are, however, some curious omissions in the FBI’s description. By now, we assume the FBI (if it has done a thorough investigation) has the suspect’s height, approximate weight, and shoe size...

Why keep the suspect’s identifying information under wraps?

A couple possibilities. First, the FBI’s investigation is probably further along than any of us know. They’re collecting data on purchases of the suspect’s Nike Air Max Speed Turf and the timers, etc. used to make the pipe bombs. From that data they cross-reference travel, locations on 1/5/2021, height, shoe size, etc.

Second, maybe there’s something else to this story. The FBI has always been sensitive to its public perception and controls information to serve that purpose. For example, the FBI has never been forthcoming about its agents’ involvement with terror suspects. Or, consider whether the pipe bomb investigation would cut against the politics of January 6. I take no pleasure in skepticism of the FBI, but this is a reputation the FBI has earned.

Either way, this outside observer can’t help but notice that one group of targets – those who entered the Capitol Building on January 6 – are pursued in the public sphere more aggressively than the person who set out pipe bombs the night before.

Unindicted Co-Conspirators in 1/6 Cases Raise Disturbing Questions of Federal Foreknowledge
Something’s Rotten in Michigan: The Forgotten Case of the Whitmer Kidnapping Plot

Of course, we could point to countless examples in America’s history of undercover agents and informants being actively involved in various “domestic terror plots.” But for the purposes of the argument we’re making here we need only go back a few months prior to 1/6 — to the so-called “Whitmer Kidnapping Plot.”

Indeed, what if we told you that scarcely three months before the 1/6 Capitol Siege, the FBI arrested 14 people for planning to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and overthrow the State Government — and that the alleged conspiracy to overthrow the State government involved storming of the State Capitol?

And what if we told you that of the 14 individuals who allegedly plotted the “kidnapping” and overthrow of the state government, at least five were undercover agents and federal informants? And as if that’s not enough, many of the individuals allegedly involved in this plot appear to belong to the “Three Percenters,” one of the very same militia groups now blamed for storming January 6.

And, as the cherry on top, what if we told you that the director of the Detroit FBI Field Office, who oversaw the infiltration operation of the Michigan Plot, was subsequently granted a highly coincidental promotion to the D.C. office, where he is now the lead FBI agent for all 1/6 cases?

As crazy as it sounds, all of this is true.
