I walked Capitol Hill ➡️ Downtown ➡️ Capitol Hill yesterday. 20,000+ steps.

I walked through the crowds. Normal and happy and kind and optimistic people.

Media hyping a few minutes where a handful of troubleseekers broke into a govt building is wildly irresponsible. Not news.
I’ve seen friends posting “omg is it safe to be in DC?”

It was totally safe and remains so.

All the “action” was in one tiny area, fomented by bad actors, bad policing, and entryists.

The whole thing reminds me of what Jefferson said about rebellions.
He said “I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical” *but* he also warned...
“Unsuccessful rebellions indeed generally establish the incroachments on the rights of the people which have produced them.”

Someone wanted yesterday to be and look “unsuccessful”. Many did. And the cameras and media coverage today will reflect that.

Turn it off. Calm down.
PS: Am I letting folks who performed criminal acts off the hook? No. People act stupid sometimes. That’s Planet Earth. They’ll be charged.

But who was it posing for pics in the Capitol? Oh yeh it was Neo Nazis. Infiltrators who have been rejected by both sides. Losers.
PPS: Do I understand the desperation and frustration of real Trump supporters who rushed into the building alongside the troublemakers? Yep. Compassion and understanding each other are what’s missing today. But was this instigated by ordinary Trump folks? Doesn’t seem so.

I’be said it before, I’ll say it again: Q and the “trust the plan” thing was always a psyop to control conservatives and ultimately destroy them.
The fact that so many people are crying over this tweet because they’ve become emotionally attached to an internet game is proof of my point. Please unfollow me. You’re mentally ill.
I literally just gained like 300 followers.

Can you believe the Pulse has only been around one year and despite being censored by Big Tech is already one of the largest properties in conservative media?

Here are the stories that cemented that growth for us. Happy New Year!

The whole “LiN wOoD vOtEd dEmOcRaT!” thing is actually neoliberal signalling.

The GOP establishment puts party over country. Remember they dinged Trump for the same thing in 15/16.

I don’t know Wood or his background. But I know this is a dumb hack reason to write someone off.
Open to your feedback of course. I actually have no dog in that weird internet fight. It just annoyed me that people were being so... petty.
As an addendum to this I see Breitbart is going big on this tonight. But do an archive search and it’s interesting how they promoted Lin Wood until they didn’t.

In the past 24hrs I’ve had FOUR attacks on my legal status in the U.S. from deranged leftists upset about my reporting.

Let me be explicit: I am legally in the United States. I would never attempt to be an illegal, anywhere!

Weird they suddenly care about borders!
It’s clear what’s going on here. Someone has instructed an attack on my status. Disgusting! I’ve gone thru ALL the right channels and paid all the right fees. Have ALL the right paperwork!

But they want open borders too!

Mental!
Btw if our reporting was so obviously false it would be easy to ignore/dismiss.

They are PANICKED! AND I LOVE IT.
