The sheer velocity at which SCOTUS is taking away rights & pulling the country backwards feels unprecedented.
Decades of progress wiped out overnight.

There's a lot to be angry about.

It may sound petty, but I can't forgive the big name legal scholars who assured the rest of us that we were being unnecessarily alarmist about these justices.

I hope they feel some shame.
He's right. The sum of these regressive changes is actually a brave new era of awfulness.

The "no guns on #January6th" line keeps cropping up.

It's flat wrong.
There were plenty of guns on #January6th

"I'm the one in the video with the gun right here"

And who can forget Lonnie Coffman, who brought a small arsenal to DC?

I count six rigs with the People’s Convoy currently heading westbound on Constitution Avenue, just north of and parallel to DC’s National Mall.

Two MPD vehicles shadow the group.
So I found the source of this livestream.

US Parks Police has a helicopter flying at a low altitude, circling above this small contingent of the #PeoplesConvoy driving around the National Mall.

One witness helped another offered life saving care

Fight the censorship & algorithms: like, comment, retweet, share, follow!
Two shocking eye-witness accounts corroborate something worse than we could have ever imagined. The @CapitolPolice appear to not only be responsible for the #death of multiple #protesters (which they lied about) but also for the #death of a fellow officer, #BrianSicknick.

Ein brisantes Datum nähert sich - am 06. Januar (übermorgen) ist der erste Jahrestag des Sturmes auf das US-Kapitol.
In #Washington werden Provokationen befürchtet.
Für Aufmerksamkeit sorgte eine Warnung von 3 US-Generälen a.D. über einen möglichen Aufstand im Jahr 2024.
Der entsprechende Artikel wurde bereits am 17.Dezember veröffentlicht, die pensionierten US-Generäle widmeten ihn aber explizit dem 6.Januar.
Darin erklären sie, im US-Militär lasse sich eine gefährliche Spaltung betrachten.
Zahlreiche Militärs seien am 06.01. dabei gewesen
Der 06.01.21 habe auch gezeigt, dass die Wahlen 2024 einen gefährlichen Punkt erreichen könnten und sprachen von einem möglichen Aufstand, auf den sich das US-Militär vorbereiten muss.
Ein "tödliches Chaos innerhalb unseres Militärs" könnte die USA in erhebliche Gefahren bringen.

... looking for original reporting on @JerryBrownGov selling pardons out the back door of the Capital, or have we all moved on?
Ben Swig owned Cannery Row before "selling it" to Ted Balestreri and Company. Brown was part owner

Ted Balestreri was implicated with his partner Burt Curtino of moving 20 to 40 pounds of cocaine "per delivery" in a huge 1988 Monterey County cocaine trafficking bust by @DEAHQ.
You see @cmarinucci & @Elex_Michaelson, THIS is what it looks like when you know California politics and refuse to bullshit the people - or cover for name brand pols who pull this level of corrupt crap without any pushback.

Since the #January6th #Capitol attack, US-based militia movement groups have somewhat altered their strategies. @jaredlholt and @avaniyadav_ took a look at the state of play and identified 8 trends to know about. 🧵⬇️…
@jaredlholt @avaniyadav_ The first 3 deal w/ how militia groups are organizing online. In the fallout of #January6th, many groups are splintering, dissolving, & regrouping at a smaller scale - including rebranding & using @Facebook to attract users before migrating to alternative platforms like @telegram
@jaredlholt @avaniyadav_ @Facebook @telegram Other militia groups have turned to hawking merchandise from sympathetic companies. One site, MyMilitia, uses a service called Flex Offers, offering users more than 45 affiliate links to retailers selling products likely to be popular w/ members: clothing, guns, ammo, tools, etc.

EXCLUSIVE: The man who rammed a car into Capitol Police, killing one, has been identified as Noah Green. Green was armed w/a large blade when he was shot dead. He identified as a follower of the black nationalist Nation of Islam movement.

FB has immediately deleted his profile.
I only had seconds to look at Noah Green's Facebook page before it was deleted. He was living in Norfolk, Va.

From what I saw, many of his posts were of a religious (Islamic) nature. He appeared to be a deeply devout follower of the Nation of Islam & went by the name, "Noah X."
Here is another photo of the deceased U.S. Capitol attacker (25-year-old Noah Green aka "Noah X") that I managed to save before Facebook deleted his entire profile. #NationofIslam #Capitol #CapitolHill

„Law and Order“ when white people cause the threat.

You are aware of the fact that Mitch McConnell reacted the way he did 2 weeks ago (!) only because he wanted to play down the risk of domestic terror by white supremacists?

But sure. Tell me more about me being the racist.

JUST IN: National Guard deployed at #Capitol after Car attack. 3 people in hospital include attacker and 2 Police.

Streets around building blocked, building in lockdown mode. FBI assisting:
This is much faster deployment of National Guard than the January attack where it took hours. In part because many remain in DC.

Security precautions in place but fence had been taken down recently

1/ Update on this story and it's a doozie, (but not a whopper). We don't tell whoppers around here. All of this is true and open-sourced. Marshall left the Infrastructure Ministry after his Proud Boy ties were revealed in this expose:…
2/ His dad (Jim Darbyshire)'s LinkedIn shows he was put in charge of the Toronto Police Public Order Unit - Special Events section AFTER his son participated in and emcee'd a pro-Proud Boys support rally with the JDL in 2017.…
3/ Daddy was also logistics lead at the G20. He has a certificate from the RCMP for ‘Counter-terrorism’ (also 2018). His son was at Queens Park demonstrating with extremists, on behalf of a now designated terror group! Is every journalist in this country asleep at their desks?

NEW: latest #ProudBoys conspiracy indictment for the #Capitol breach is damning, and shows plenty of planning.

Proud Boys "Chairman" Enrique Tarrio also shows up, and appears to have been briefed on elements the plan.

Quick THREAD 1/
2/ The indictment covers Nov-Dec fundraising & organizing (also covered in superseded indictments) but gets INTERESTING on January 4th...

When #ProudBoys "Chairman" Enrique Tarrio is arrested, accused conspirators panic that communications are compromised & create new channels.
3/ KEY: one of the indicted #ProudBoys posts messages on various PB chats claiming "no plan" [me speculating: meant to confuse listeners?]...

An hour later unindicted co-conspirator 1 ("UCC-1") is busy planning & directing the newly created small group.

Who is this UCC-1?

NEW: Timothy Hale-Cusanell breached the #Capitol.

He is a @USNavy contractor obsessed with antisemitism. He wore a hitler mustache on his base at @NWSEarleNJ & quizzed colleagues about whether they were jewish.

It gets worse... 1/

2/ SHOCKING: a @USArmy sergeant at @NWSEarleNJ wrote to judge he'd be:

"Proud to have someone like Mr. Hale serve under me." Said he was 'appalled' by 'slander' about white supremacy.

BUT same Sergeant had *confirmed* Hale-Cusanell's antisemitism to a @RealNCIS investigation! Screenshot of the positively worded letter, saying he was aptext from the article linked in above tweet. Sargeant said hPics of defendant with hitler mustache

NEW: #ProudBoys member Christopher Worrell was just arrested for participating in the #Capitol siege... and unloading his pepper spray at the police.

He got 'agitated' when the @FBI first contacted him..

Let me share fact about Chris aka #SgtPepperSprayer...

2/ Worrell was in Forgiato Blow's cringeworthy "We Outside" music video, filmed during the siege (left)

Casting beautiful shade, the @FBI used a still from video in the ID the brand of pepper spray Worrell used (right).

Fact check: Yes! There were guns at the #Capitol siege.

Look for yourself: Sig P320/M17 on a man heading up the steps.

(@EpochTimes & @LawEnforceToday making misleading mileage out of the @FBI saying no guns recovered *during* siege.)

2 / Moreover, the @FBI was explicitly NOT speaking for #Capitol Police or @DCPoliceDept when they gave that answer to @SenRonJohnson.

Multiple people got gun charges on the 6th, as @RickRouan @USATODAY reports.…
3/ The source of this deeply misleading factoid is, of course, questioning last week by @SenRonJohnson who continues to float the falsehood hat the mob was unarmed.
