In open letter to elected officials released to @wusa9 by @DCPoliceDept Officer Mike Fanone, severely injured by angry mob in #CapitolRiots, Fanone writes "The indifference shown to my colleagues and I is disgraceful." "The time to fully recognize these Officers actions is NOW!"
Fanone took this photo showing Commander Ramey Kyle in the tunnel commanding officers to “Hold the line” as @DCPoliceDept fought back the violent crowd. Fanone writes “It was one of the most inspirational moments of my entire life. Even as I write this it brings me to tears.”
Fanone says "I struggle daily with the emotional anxiety of having survived such a traumatic event but I also struggle with the anxiety of hearing those who continue to downplay the events of that day and those who would ignore them altogether with their lack of acknowledgement."

Among the tales of intrigue from Jan 6 is what was Ukrainian Serhiy Dubynin (Russian sp: Sergei Dybynyn), a member of the neo-Nazi Ukranian paramilitary 'The Right Sector', doing at the #CapitolRiots seen in a Happy Snap w/ Jake ‘The Shaman’ Angeli? #CapitolHunters See below 1/
2/ Sergei Dybynyn in a 2014 photo at Russian occupied Donetsk airport. Anti-Putin pundits claim he was an "infowarrior for Inter TV, owned by fugitive oligarch Firtash but beneficially owned by Putin pal Medvedchuk," proving the dark hand of Russia was behind the #CapitolRiots 2/
3/ But Putin friendly pundits contend Sergei Dybynyn (they use the Ukranian sp Serhiy Dubynin) is a Ukraine supporting Neo-Nazi who is wanted on criminal charges in the “pro-Russian” Donbas region of East Ukraine. Pictured below is his arrest wanted poster #SeditionHunters 3/

Ah oui quand même.
Elle est un peu folle cette interview de #PhilippedeVilliers dans Valeurs actuelles.
Pour aller au delà du titre, voici un petit florilège.
On commence très fort par une "découverte" de Philippe de Villiers: un exercice de préparation à une pandémie mondiale qui a eu lieu fin 2019.
Conclusion: "je ne dis pas 'ils ont inventé le virus' car je ne suis pas complotiste (... ) Ils s'y attendaient". 🙃
Alors sur cette "découverte":
1) elle était tellement cachée que le site internet qui annonçait cet exercice est toujours en ligne et présente ouvertement tous les intervenants

I would say that society is at fault. The government was not behind Jenny McCarthy, Oprah, Dr. Oz, etc.
#vaccine #VaccinesSaveLives #VaccinesWork #MedTwitter #ScienceTwitter
What the government DID do wrong: “#security” & espionage via vaccines Frankenstein monster unleashed on Muslims

If the US government does do things like this it’s not a “#conspiracy

...all while what led to #CapitolRiots was brewing 🤦🏻‍♀️

If Prius-driving Whole Foods-consuming suburbanites would STOP #misinformation #disinformation to #trauma ridden #refugee populations


the jobs of minority & Muslim doctors would not be so hard

This is lack of *societal* control

Why were entries in this Dept of Defense timeline not included in the DoD timeline presented to public and to Congress?


"previously undisclosed document prepared by the Pentagon for internal use"

(@LisaMascaro @benfoxatap @lbaldor report)…

"By 3:37 p.m., the Pentagon sent its own security forces to guard the homes of defense leaders. No troops had yet reached the Capitol."

At 4:08 p.m. Pence places urgent phone call to acting SecDef Miller, demanding answers.

Associated Press: “Pence said the Capitol was not secure and he asked military leaders for a deadline for securing the building.”

“'Clear the Capitol,'” Pence said.

It’s important for us Americans to understand that this same tactic is being deployed here in the US. This is a war. But in the US, they are not using guns and bombs. The armament of choice is #disinformation. It’s happening on all social media platforms.
How do you avoid being tricked by it? Read a variety of news sources, because the way disinformation campaigns often work is to appeal to an emotional theme and once the reader is drawn in, the demand to isolate yourself from other narratives and people begins.
That’s how QAnon drew in so many Americans ahead of the #CapitolRiots. People lost their homes, families & jobs because they followed baseless conspiracy theories. They were radicalized, just like #terrorists are. @threadreaderapp unroll @john_sipher @GenMhayden @mvhaydencenter

NEW: Feds defend use of '68 anti-riot law critics say is racist. Justice Dept boasts of charging 80+ cases in response to last year's #BLM protests & #CapitolRiots Earlier:… New doc:…
Note: Unlike a similar filing in Oregon a couple weeks ago, this new one has sign-off of DOJ HQ's National Security Division. DOJ wouldn't say if it signed off on the earlier one.
The new Main-Justice-approved brief appears to omit the provocative claim that prosecutors' use of the statute, which has an interference-with-commerce provision, was appropriate because many #BLM demonstrations included paid protesters.

#CapitolRiots According to multiple law enforcement sources federal investigators have narrowed down the retail chain where the two 60-minute kitchen timers were bought as well as the end caps used to assemble the two viable pipe bombs placed outside the RNC + DNC. A forensic Image
review of the 2 viable devices obtained Thursday @CBSNews shows the kitchen timer was the sole method for detonation, no evidence of secondary or remote detonation. NOTE: If planted on January 5th, as the FBI bureau has suggested, + the 60-minute timer set, the sources said ImageImage
then the devices were designed to explode the day before the riots. CONTEXT: CBS understands there is still internal debate among investigators about when the devices planted January 5 vs. January 6 (day of riots.)

One week ago #AZ04 Rep. Paul Gosar validated & emboldened white supremacists when he took the same stage as Steve King & Nick Fuentes at AFPAC.

This reprehensible behavior generated a lot of media attention <THREAD>

#RemovePaulGosar #DemCastAZ #ONEV1 Image
Sadly, it has not generated condemnation from either the GOP or Gosar supporter @AmerDentalAssn.

Are you seriously cool with this ADA? Silence is complicity.

Call (312) 440-2500 & ask the ADA why they continue to fund Paul Gosar. #RemovePaulGosar #CallYourDentist #DemCast Image
Let's start with our conservative leaning hometown paper @TheDailyCourier.

#CapitolRiots After calling it "Domestic Terrorism," FBI Director Wray said the January 5 FBI Norfolk warning of violence at the Capitol was widely shared. Wray said FBI Norfolk pushed out raw, unverified intelligence called a "Situational Information Report" on the evening
of Jan 5 + the SIR was sent via email to the JTTF, Joint Terrorism Task Force (which Wray said included Capitol, DC police), verbally provided through a command post briefing (Wray said also included Capitol, DC Police) + posted to a national law enforcement portal. This SIR was
pulled from a web posting,  saying go to the Capitol and be "ready for war." Wray was pressed on why FBI has not provided Jan 5 Norfolk memo to lawmakers, he said it was "law enforcement sensitive" (1 of the lowest classification levels) + part ongoing investigation @CBSNews

Does @IowaGOP @realiowacrs appreciate the good work that @ChuckGrassley is doing to point blame at #antifa for the #CapitolRiots? Understand that y'all need it because jailed constituents can't vote.
The #IAGOP could use to support remedial #literacy program for seniors elected from their ranks. They might be able to understand the #CapitolRiots better.…
It's something that @iowacrs @YoungIowaGOP @officialifcr could volunteer to better their community.
How many contacts do the #scgop have with these types?…
How many of the @SCGOP's constituents would end up in jail for those contacts, be unable to vote for either @TimScottSC or @LindseyGrahamSC? #CapitolRiots

Was It Antifa, Or Not⁉️
Fact checking the fact checkers ⤵️
One of the first rioters arrested on #Jan6 was a member of Antifa/BLM

Various MSM “fact-checkers” determined this claim was false…

Well, in this THREAD, the fact-checkers are fact-checked !
2️⃣ An “agent provocateur” was John Earle Sullivan aka JaydenX

Before his arrest at the Capitol on Jan 6th Sullivan was active in the BLM movement throughout the summer of 2020…

The #CapitolRiots Were A Trap

A Set Up, A Planned Op To Derail The Process Of Objecting To The Fraudulent Biden Electors

👀 Watch: PEACEFUL Trump supporters trying to stop Antifa from breaking the #Capitol windows ⤵️

#insurrection #SenateHearing
Trump supporters called off the siege of the #CapitolBuilding from the beginning, even physically stopping the windows from breaking.

There’s plenty more of such videos.

Why isn’t the Media reporting?

#CapitolRiots #Jan6Hearing #SaveAmericaRally
Police opened the barricades and directed protestors to “breach” the Capitol grounds.

And of course, most Police were NOT part of the set up, just a few, well placed — and that's all it took!

Just not buying this was a big intelligence failure if I and many other Americans could see it coming while sitting at our houses using a basic Internet connection. No doubt those in government could see it as well, issue isn't intelligence but selection bias. #CapitolRiots
Alright, coming back to this, even more frustrating hear of intelligence failure & finger pointing Jan. 6. Even the "failure of imagination" argument just sucks. Yesterday 4 officials were interrogated for being attacked by a mob incited by the President…
Why would it be a failure of imagination that an armed mob, dressed in body armor, carrying weapons, who openly posted and spoke of attacking the Capitol would do so? Because everyone gave the elected officials a pass.

Senator @RonJohnsonWI is a cheesehead: a thread.
In today’s episode of Up is the New Down, the Wisconsin senator doesn’t think the Capitol violence was predictable. 🤔
I mean, the DC hotel previously frequented by Proud Boys decided 3 WEEKS ahead of time to close due to credible threats of violence, and it was reported in multiple news outlets. Does @RonJohnsonWI read news?
Any casual user of social media saw the violent chatter everywhere, not just on sympathizer sites eg Parler or podcasts from Steve Bannon (which by the way described war.) You would have to lodge your head firmly in the sand @FormerSenMajLdr McConnell style to miss all of this.
