Dear Sen. @RonWyden:
I'm your constituent in Oregon. Thank you for your letter to the IRS Commissioner about the tax-exempt org chaired by @AmyKremer. "The group that largely organized the Jan. 6 rally is Women for America First, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit." cnbc.com/2021/01/15/top…
In May, I wrote a backgrounder on @AmyKremer. An attorney told me about her nonprofit Women for America First: “The [website] content raises serious questions about what this organization is doing,” adding, “The IRS could look at this and decide to audit.”

Trump administration's IRS conferred tax-exempt status on @AmyKremer's Women for America First in Feb 2020. The organization is required to file IRS Form 990 this year, showing its gross receipts. Women for America First was the permit-holder for the Jan 6th event at the Capitol.

This is tragically funny, but there's a broader point here

People who call this an insurrection aren't paying attention, the perpetrators are simply handing evidence of their crimes over to the FBI out of public-spiritedness!
Antifa: "Journalists aren't allowed at our events, they lead to our members being arrested."

StopTheStealers: "Hi there nice FBI lady, why yes, I'd be perfectly happy to give you my video of our riot!"
Also, ffs, if you attended the #StopTheSteal protest and the FBI comes knocking DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM WITHOUT A LAWYER PRESENT no matter how "nice" they are being

A Man Isolated, Does He Have The Power?

It's Thursday morning and we're not in a globalized war with China, far as I can tell. I was happy to give Simon, Charlie, and Danielle their time from Tuesday to Wednesday. Where to now?
2) I never hold being wrong over someone, as I am so often the last wrong man standing. I have made many predictions that have failed. Many predictions I should have made but did not. My track record is very spotty, indeed. But my specialty is not prediction.
3) Rather, my true gift is as a situation analyst based on hard facts, data, and I call for either support or opposition to a given action set. If I have the data, then I am as good at that form of analysis as anyone you might hope to meet. My track record there is damned good.

Some deceitful idiot from the New York Times yesterday posted a screen shot of my tweet, out of context, to imply I said no Parler users were involved in the protest.

Anyone literate could see my point: FB & YouTube were used far more, exactly what this new reporting shows:
WPost: "A growing body of evidence shows Facebook played a much larger role than Sandberg suggested.

The #StopTheSteal hashtag was widely used on the service ...when a search on Facebook reported 128,000 people were talking about it and ... using it to coordinate for the rally."
That prompts again the same question I asked in my article and tweets (that the NYT reporter blatantly distorted):

Why didn't Dem politicians, and journalists, demand that Apple & Google remove *FB* from their stores given the much larger role it played than Parler?

1/17 Generally speaking. The left hates the right FAR more than the right hates the left.

The right will disagree with the left, but die for their freedom to say whatever they believe. The left will disagree with the right, but mercilessly kill the right, & piss on their ashes
2/17 This is why the left has historically dominated media, academia, & popular culture. They are authoritarian minded individuals who do not tolerate dissent. This behavior naturally orients them toward positions where they can lecture others.
3/17 They are like the Borg on Star Trek: “Resistance is futile,” submit or die.

We’re currently watching this behavior play out culturally in real time. Conservatives are being mass banned & censored on social media, essential services like banking & web hosting are being...

#StopTheSteal inciter @laurenboebert tweeted out Nancy’s location three minutes after Trump terrorists stormed the Capitol. Image
@laurenboebert was tweeting out the location of Nancy Pelosi, a target of her terrorist followers, during the Capitol Building lockdown.

In June, Boebert called for Pelosi’s “immediate removal” in order to protect Confederate statues. #Sedition

@TwitterSafety, with #TrumpBanned, we noticed Trump tried to tweet from other accounts. In the midst of this, @laurenboebert changed her profile pic to Trump’s Twitter avi. She has a blue check. Was Trump using her account? ImageImage

This begins on Monday, 48 hours before the #CapitolAttack. I was reading about the #StopTheSteal rally and realized it was on the same day as certification. I told a colleague I was concerned there would be a takeover the Capitol Building to block the vote.

What would come was not a surprise.

On Wednesday, that colleague sent me a Slack message: “Not to freak you out, but…”

The violence in Washington shocked the world and caught the authorities off guard.

But for anyone who had been watching the unfolding story - online and on the streets of US cities - it came as no surprise.

We tell the story of 65 days that led to chaos.
bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-…
Videos, images, graphics and claims that went viral on and after election day gave rise to a hashtag: #StopTheSteal

The message was clear - Mr Trump had won a landslide victory, but dark forces in the establishment "deep state" had stolen it from him.
bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-…
A Facebook group called "Stop the Steal" was created on 4 November and became one of the fastest-growing in the platform's history, adding more than 300,000 members.

Some of the posts were alarming, speaking of the need for a "civil war" or "revolution".

We will “rush into battle, we will look into the eye of the enemy. We will not stop. We will not relent. We will fight...”

@thecjpearson incited the #StopTheSteal crowd before the storming of the Capitol. Yes, @TwitterSafety, @Facebook, and @Instagram should delete his accounts.
🔊 (Sound Up) Watch #StopTheSteal founder @Ali Alexander smile at a racist joke yelled out by a crowd member about Barack Obama not being Black.
On January 5th, #StoptheSteal founder Ali Alexander proclaimed, “the rebellion starts now!” The next day his rally attendees stormed the Capitol Building.

The Million MAGA March on Nov 14, 2020 was a preview of the collaboration between GOP politicians, conservative groups, and neo-Nazis that we saw again on Jan 6, 2021.

The 11/14 rally was organized by @america1stwomen, w turnout generated by @NickjFuentes & his groypers, Proud Boys, Alex Jones, politicians like @RepMTG. It was the largest gathering of white nationalists, neo-Nazis, militias, and hate groups since UTR in Charlottesville in 2017.
On 1/6, the group came together again for another rally. The site listed organizing groups as @america1stwomen, @ali's Stop the Steal, Rule of Law Defense Fund (led by @AGSteveMarshall), Turning Point Action (led by @charliekirk11), Tea Party Patriots, etc alreporter.com/2021/01/07/ala…

Friends, The Fat Lady Has Not Sung

As we'll contemplate, it is very possible that this message is layered. It may have more than just its surface level meaning. We'll look at the possibilities below.

2) @KateScopelliti is a little upset with me. After I watched the video message, I conveyed to her that I thought this to be a concession speech. I shouldn't have said that, and I'm sorry. Here's why. Kate didn't watch it for about 10 or 12 hours. She just couldn't bear to.
3) But when she finally did watch it, she told me, emphatically, "That is NO concession speech!"

I apologized and told her that that was what everyone was saying to me at Twitter. Everybody disagreed with me when I posted my reaction.

"They were right," she said.

So not “#StopTheSteal?”

The invasion of the U.S. Capitol was discussed for weeks in plain sight.

We reviewed scores of social media posts — many of them public — welcoming violence leading up to Wednesday’s attack.

See for yourself 👇
More than a week ago, the founder of the #StoptheSteal movement encouraged people to bring tents and sleeping bags and avoid wearing masks for the event.

“If D.C. escalates… so do we,” he wrote.
But far-right supporters of President Donald Trump had been rallying on social media and saying the election had been stolen even weeks *before* that.

They openly discussed the idea of violent protest on the day Congress met to certify the result.

...are also incapable of seeing live footage and widespread reporting, including photos and videos *from the insurrectionists themselves,* and admit that MAGA #StoptheSteal Trump supporters are responsible for yesterday's madness and treason...
...which is itself caused by another ignorant conspiracy theory: the inability to accept the widespread and well-documented and throughout audited 2020 federal election results.
This is a form of public insanity, it is a failure of civic and public reason, and if evidence and reality won't convict you, then the proper and just use of the law may well be the conviction that eventually wakes some people up to reality.

Ashli Babbitt wasn’t a victim. Ashlie Babbitt was a QAnon terrorist, a traitor attempting to subvert the Constitition she swore to uphold as a veteran. #CapitolRiots
Ashli Babbit posted “heated,” anti-migrant rants on Twitter and told politicians, she was “putting them on notice.” #CapitolRiots
“Where is Kamala?” In another anti-migrant rant, Ashli Babbitt, the QAnon terrorist who was stopped dead in the Capitol Building, was upset about Kamala comparing the KKK to terrorists. #CapitolRiots

1. Can't believe this is happening? Then you are deaf, blind or corrupt.
2. This is what happens when all the safety nets our Founding Fathers created in our constitution FAIL the people.
3. This is not unAmerican. Just the opposite.

Italian Defense Contractor Leonardo Satellites Used In Us Election Hacking – Ex Cia Bradley Johnson
According to new information revealed by former CIA officer Bradley Johnson, Italian defense contractor Leonardo satellites were used in 2020 US Election hacking.

#StopTheSteal
Frankfurt servers only hosted partial tracks of the hacking. The operation to re-calibrate the hacking attack took place through Leonardo servers & after this switching of numbers the new manipulated data was sent back to the Dominion voting machines in the US. #StopTheSteal
This data transfer explains the infamous “glitch” in Dominion Voting machines during the election, according to the officer. #StopTheSteal
