Stupid about AGW!!
At least you finally concede his innocence.
He built the temple, picked the type of people he wanted to worship at it, then gave them all the material of ignorance and hatred and then they went extreme and Trump is acting surprised. He built his own sacrafice and now he himself is trying to turn himself into a scapegoat in the eyes of others

This is messed up.

A week ago, if you told me Trump got a bunch of yokels into a frenzy and they tried to burn down the capitol I would have believed it. I don't think Trump understands the consequences of his actions and a bunch of idiots thought they could take down the government and for a few hours were successful. It was a dark stain on our democracy but more luck than skill. I bought into that.

But now it's starting to look like a coordinated attack that was an inside job. And I'd bet folding money Trump was more pawn than planner. We'll never know exactly what happened but wow.

I would have believed. This is because there are a lot of people who pretty strongly believe that the Democrats are going to force socialism, communism and Marxism down upon them along with grabbing their guns, and let China have whatever it wants for starters. There are lots of people who take Alex Jones and his snake oil seriously. He boasted of having $30 million dollars worth of equipment to get his message out. So he sells a lot of that crap. Fortunately, Jones told his listeners not to go protest at the state capitols this weekend. The Deep State and suggestable Q people are largely behind it. If trouble happens, Trump and his supporters will be blamed for it.

I bet China and Russia love how gullible Americans can be, have surely exploited it and will again in the future.

On Wednesday, Alex Jones engaged in a fascinating interview with an old man, Dr. Steve Pieczenik. He talked of a military coup. He insists that Trump will remain president. Biden and his people will be arrested, along with Hunter. So will Pelosi, Schumer, and even Mitt Romney. Supreme Court Justice Roberts who was a CIA operative, is a homosexual and on drugs is also in trouble. Jones became bewildered and skeptical. It annoyed the old man. Pieczenik told Jones he will never appear on his show again, if he's proven wrong. Later, Jones pressed Pieczenik again to make clear how this magic of Biden being forced to step down with Trump remaining was supposed to happen. Once again, Pieczenik said it was all about the arrests. Jones annoyed him again by asking, "I agree, I hope you're right. Can I meet your cat, please?" Pieczenik added that Trump knows what is going to happen and is the genius who put it together. People don't know how brilliant Trump is. Jones never met the cat on camera. Quite frankly to me, it's just another example of how being for Trump can mess up your mind bad.

(Dr. Steve Pieczenik is a New York Times best selling author with over 20 years experience in resolving international crises for four U.S. administrations.)

These calls must be coming from white supremacists and militia groups. No conservative groups I know, nationwide or local, called for armed protest, let alone violent. There's a poster floating around though that everyone is using as a warning to not get involved. It talks about supporting Trump, and the Capitol and all 50 state capitals, but it literally looks like some communist propaganda poster. Don't know who made this call for violence, but sure wasn't any of the major Trump supporting groups run by regular people or any conservative leaning organization that any of us could find.

Either that or it's left groups trying to get conservatives to come out and get blamed for anything that happens those days.

While group texting my siblings, when the dreaded topic of politics pop up (not very often, thankfully), they all agree that socialism is coming our way now, and gun ownership will cease (or at least try)...oh yeah, and there Was voter fraud that costs trump the election...

Would you bet someone in his camp wasn’t selfish enough to record it for their get-out-of-jail-free card? The selfless folk that they are...
