Yesterday: Pro-Trump Protestors Storm Capitol Hill, Clash with Police. Excerpt:
As Congress debates the 2020 Electoral College vote, legions of Trump supporters descended into the nation’s capital for the Save America rally, which was addressed by President Trump. Now, they’re marching on Capitol Hill—and pandemonium has broken out. Capitol Police are besieged and overwhelmed. The Madison building has been evacuated. Elijah Schaffer of the Blaze captured one melee. This is an increasingly dangerous situation.
Right now, the Senate and House are debating for up to two hours the Electoral College results of Arizona after an objection was lobbed by congressional Republicans. We can expect this to happen at least three times today.
Our own Julio Rosas is on the ground as well, capturing Trump supporters rushing the Hill.

I’m suspecting this is Stage One of a major shitshow. And I’m not entirely certain where it will go.
A few years before he died, the Old Man told me that he and Mom were lucky to have lived through America’s best years. This from a WW2 vet and a child of the Depression. I think he was probably right. We’re on the down-slope now.
So, True Believers – thoughts?
