While yet unconfirmed by reliable media outlets, some Trump supporters gathered at the January 6th rally claim that those who stormed the capitol building were rogue actors part of the ANTIFA crowd that gathered among the protesters in Washington today. Mainstream media is outraged at the “deplorables,” of course. Anchors are pontificating now the way they should have been during the city-wide riots that occurred this past summer–the same riots Nadler called a “myth.”
Trump quickly denounced the show of violence via Twitter at approximately 1:30 pm EST, as other congress members followed suit. Yet, while pundits and political leaders call the acts in Washington despicable and harangue the perpetrators who breached the capital, many of the talking heads forget how despicable it must look to nearly half the voting public when the courts, legislators, governors and election officials–all of whom are charged with the fiduciary responsibility of protecting our freedoms–completely ignore the mounting evidence of election fraud and malfeasance over the last month-and-a-half. I do not condone violence; however, I saw it coming.
There is a black powder trail leading to a mound of dynamite, and only part of that mound was ignited today. The trail consists of denying mathematical facts, ignoring eye-witness testimony, and disregarding video footage altogether. When a maddening crowd considers such evidence the only plausible explanation for a nearly impossible election result of 2020, the legislators and governors would be well advised to take heed.
Some senators and house members were doing just that today in their objections to the electors and in their pleadings to other senate and house members for a full and complete audit of the election results in the swing states. But rumors were strong that Pence and Pelosi were refusing a debate on the subject matter altogether. Regardless whether this was the case, we did see Pence unequivocally abdicate his power to reject electors before the electoral count even began (as he intimated in his letter), and hear establishment senators give their moral condemnation speeches about the “rule of law” while whistling past the proverbial graveyard. This perhaps brought the spark to the black powder.
Hopefully, Trump supporters and patriots were not ultimately responsible for the violence that broke out inside the capitol building on January 6th, where one woman was shot and has since perished. However, if state and federal legislators, governors, election officials, and bureaucrats don’t become extremely transparent within the next several days, I fear more of the same will follow. Though I don’t necessarily believe it was us today, history tells us one thing: This could escalate until it becomes 1776 again, and we are pressed toward our responsibility to our fellow Americans and to our progeny, that [w]hen a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce (citizens) under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
Stay watchful and prayerful patriots, hold the line…
