Things we need to know:

1) why didn't a single member of the USCP use deadly force?

2) who exactly have the orders that resulted in only 500 of the 2000 USCP officers to be at the Capitol?
3) Who lifted the standard prohibitions against backpacks and flagpoles at the Jan. 6 demonstration?

4) Why has no federal official briefed the press on ANYTHING having to do with attack or aftermath?
5) What warnings were given (or not given) to the USCP re: armed attackers prior to the 6th?

6) What role did the new Trump actors play in the DOD, DHS and DOJ, in the days before the 6th?
7) What did objecting house and senate Republicans know and when did they know it?

8) Were there coordinated plans to kidnap people in the line of succession?
9) What DAFUQ does Trump have on Mitch, Pence, Graham and Cruz that would keep them kissing the ring even in the face of a conspiracy to overthrow the US?
I am fairly sure that this screen grab from the stairs clip answers the question of whether the USCP had sidearms. It doesn't answer why they did not use them (except perhaps once).
This article says "a police lieutenant" gave the "no deadly force" order. First I have seen that detail. If true, a full inquiry into why, and whether they were on orders from higher up CoC.…
One more: why did all the early video make the USCP look like they welcomed the protestors?
Strong reporting that Trumpists attacked the DHS threat assessment functions
Who constructed the gallows and why was that obviously violent threat allowed?
This INCREDIBLY important thread by @LiteraryMouse shows both the public threat AND that Metropolitan PD must have been under a stand down order. Who gave that order?
On this question, this makes it appear that the Metropolitan PD gave no resistance leaving the USCP to attack by the mob.
Metro PD are federalized, so now we need to know who issued the stand down order?
From this, it seems that Sund was the full guy, let down by Sargeants at Arm's and the Pentagon. It's going to take years to unpack this.…

It's time to settle this once and for all. What is the best kind of bird. Back up your answer. You too @JarBomb @Northern_Ozbird
I offer two, first the pileated wood pecker, which is bad ass it tears down entire trees with its head and laughs at you while it does.
Second, the Black Vulture, which has an awesomely pirate name and a black leather head. It flies like shit and eats death.

For 2021 I'd like it if we stopped accusing people of racism for saying a Black person is articulate
For 2021 I'd like everyone to admit peas, outside of their delicious pod, are disgusting and not food.
For 2021 I'd like everyone to admit that the Patriots are the cheatingest franchise in the history of all pro sports and probably had Putin hack their opponents.

Trump REALLY stepped in it calling for repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. He doesn't listen to lawyers, so I can see how he made the mistake - a quick thread
Sect 230 shields social media companies from liability for if they "in good faith to restrict access to or availability of material that the provider or user considers to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable."
Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc., have cited this law in taking Trumpists off line for lying, doxxing and inciting violence - Trump hates that, of course.

So if you don't think that a giant lighted phallus is likely to save a life in a Christmas miracle, well this thread is for you. This is my neighborhood, and this is my neighbor ... both of which are pretty hysterical.
My neighbor was interviewed on the radio and explained that as an ex-marine, he did it as a joke because the guy across the street (and up the hill) was ex Navy and ... so this makes sense in guy land.
Lately, they've mostly kept it turned off because there was too much traffic and the HOA (which is pretty cool for the most part) asked him to tone it down. I was out the other day taking photos for my Be The Light song, and it was a little classier
