A Day that Shocked The World

Every four years, after each presidential election, the joint session of Congress is called for verification of each state's electoral vote count. Even when the popular vote, the total tally of the union's desired choice for president, is greater than those whom the electoral college deems the electoral winner, does the verification process dissolve into senatorial challenges, filibuster arguments, or worse a dissolution into utter chaos over the verification process.

Unfortunately, January 6, 2021, the nation, and the world, witnessed the worst and best of the American political process. A President whose message has remained constant from before the election results were confirmed. His public relations campaign, his divisive, driving message, was and has always been to leverage the boardroom tactic of a hostile takeover to secure his position.

And it has been effective. Donald Trump was the candidate the establishment felt was "dangerous" and that has been proven to be an accurate assessment of his tactical determination to take-over the political process. He simply did not know when to curb the hate, dictatorial rhetoric and check the hard-fought loss at the door.

A Mask is a Mask is a Mask

The images, masked rebels, horned gladiators, and those seeking fifteen minutes of fame hoping their solidarity, anointed moments earlier by "their" President, would be enough to subvert the process and, as images have shown masked terrorists with bundles of flex cuffs, take hostages if necessary in order to secure the "stolen election."

These terrorist intent on subvert the electoral process have sent a resounding message to allies and enemies world-wide, America is ripe for the rise in domestic terror and Al-Qaeda infiltration.

"A Saudi Air Force officer who went on a deadly gun rampage at a US naval base in December 2019 worked with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) to plan the attack, US officials say," the BBC reported.

The Origins of Subversion/Treason

The Capitol Siege and the attempt to subverting the electoral process is the culmination of events and actions that have been commonly known and simmering for twenty-five years.

Donald Trump seized upon an opportunity, created a national campaign and from the foundation of events and actions happening in New York City and Hudson County, New Jersey, beginning in 1996 and played it on a national level.

It is not simply injustice. Injustice is common, well known and even when protestors take to the streets as the nation has experienced throughout 2020, the uprising dies down, and eventually injustice rises again.

Subverting The Law's Slow Encroachment

Subverting the judicial system has become a slow encroachment. It is the Goliaths who trample on any person or group without thought or concern. The privilege of wealth and power many would say.

These actions that have played out on a national stage, trickle down and have trickled down to those who will never have the goliath global power or recognition and so they have taken the concept and built their own world where they are the goliath, the champion who through mind-control or other tactics have given the common man, those whom the Goliaths commonly trample on, the belief and freedom to become the master of the universe they have created.

We see it in religious organization where the Pastors elevate themselves to rock star status, presenting themselves above, using add-ons to seduce the followers. Every person wants to be considered valuable and each of these groups, Trump's Terrorists and Religious subversives, found their passion and cause.

The Manhattan religious subversive group, is a domestic terror organization operating out of a church that has activity, without thought or concern for any laws of the United States, created their own set of by-laws in which they freely operate a criminal system which allows their select followers to commit violent crime and circumvent the judicial process through, active and paramilitary measures, circumventing, lies, and an empowering belief they have outwitted the Federal authorities and all law enforcement.

The religious subversives have formed regional sub-groups along with regional leadership. The world witnessed similar actions from a different set of domestic terrorists on January 6, 2021. Violence is permitted if necessary, seditious determination.

How long will Law Enforcement stop at the door of the Goliath which harbors the religious who ride the coattails of the powerful?

Coronavirus Totals

The infection rates of the coronavirus have alarmingly increased around the world. The weekly account confirms that a second wave is building with European nations enforcing shutdowns for, at minimum, one month.

A new strain, a mutation, has created global concern leaders around the world are determining the best direction for the protection of the population. The importance of maintaining personal protective practices is imperative to controlling the spread.

For the week ending January 10, 2021, coronavirus cases globally increased by 5,110,500 confirmed cases, bringing the total of confirmed cases worldwide to 89,674,000 people with a total worldwide death toll of 1,925,800 deaths, an increase of 90,900 over the past week.

The coronavirus has claimed 372,600 total deaths, a weekly increase of 22,300 deaths. (Data from The New York Times).

The Aftermath and Two Defining Moments in History

On January 5, 2021 White House Press Secretary released the following statement: "Antifa activists have brutally attacked our law-abiding friends, neighbors, and business owners, and destroyed historic landmarks that our communities have cherished for decades.  This violence and lawlessness has no place in the United States and will be called out for the domestic terrorism that it is.  Today, President Donald J. Trump signed a memorandum to ensure that Federal officials assess actions of Antifa activists in light of Federal laws that restrict the entry of aliens associated with terrorist organizations and aliens, intent on criminal activity.  President Trump will not allow Antifa, or any terrorist organization, to destroy our great country."

On January 6, 2021 after weeks of broadcasted media notice of an "explosion," President Trump addressed supporters at the "Save America March" in Washington, D.C. In this speech he stated, "we love you" and encouraged the very large crowd to march to the Capitol to take back the stolen election.

On January 7, 2021 from The James Brady Briefing Room, White House Press Secretary Kaleigh McEnany said in a released statement, "I deliver this on behalf of the entire White House. The violence we saw yesterday at our nation's Capital was appalling, reprehensible, and antithetical to the American way.  We condemn it — the President and this administration — in the strongest possible terms.  It is unacceptable, and those involved should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The First Amendment guarantees the right of the people to peaceably assemble.  What we saw last night in Washington and across the country was not that.  Make no mistake: What we saw yesterday afternoon in the halls of our Capitol, was not that."


Democrats Take Georgia in Historic Turn, Capital Erupts in Chaos


Vice-President Pence

Vice President Mike Pence, who was whisked out of the Senate Chamber by Secret Service, upon returning after witnessing the riots, the appalling images, the grotesque display of treasonous actions against the very same government that grants the right to peaceful assemble, to protest, to voice distasteful words which undermine the balance of society, may have made the shortest speech of his entire political career and the most defining words of his tenure as Vice-President.

When after the shocking siege of the Capitol, and the work of verifying the electoral votes, began again, he said, simply, "Let's get back to work." His words were met with bi-partisan applause.

He survived the political fallout, in what will undoubtedly be forever known as the day Trump sent a wrecking ball into his political future.

Congress Ratifies Biden

At 3:40am, January 7, 2021, Congressional lawmakers voted to certify the Electoral College tally affirming the election of Joe Biden for president.

Cabinet Resignations

Sixteen members of President Trump's White House, including ranking members of the President's administration and members of the Frist Lady's staff have resigned over the events of January 6, 2021.

The most senior members of the President Administration include Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, Secretary of Transportation Elain Chao, the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Assistant Attorney General Eric S. Dreiband, Assistant Secretary at the Department of Health and Human Services, Elinore F. McCance-Katz, Deputy White House Press Secretary, Sarah Matthews.

Also, from the President's team, White House Council of Economic Advisers Acting Chairman, Tyler Goodspeed, Deputy Assistant Secretary at the Commerce Department John Costello, Deputy National Security Adviser Matthew Pottinger, Special Envoy to Northern Ireland and Former White House Chief of Staff, Mick Mluvaney,

From the First Lady Melania Trump's staff, First Lady's Chief of Staff Stephanie Grisham and Social Secretary Rickie Niceta.

"On Friday, officials confirmed that five National Security Council officials had resigned over the past few days. The officials were Rob Greenway, senior director for Middle Eastern and North African affairs; Anthony Ruggiero, senior director for weapons of mass destruction and biodefense; Ryan Tully, senior director for European and Russian affairs; Mark Vandroff, senior director for defense policy; and Erin Walsh, senior director for African affairs, " The New York Times reported.

Impeachment

Bi-partisan support is growing for a second impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump. House Majority leader Nancy Pelosi, announced on January 7, 2021, after the seditious action of January 6, 2021, when the president incited domestic terror on the nation's capital.

"Democrats laid the groundwork on Friday for impeaching President Trump a second time, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California threatened to bring him up on formal charges if he did not resign "immediately" over his role in inciting a violent mob attack on the Capitol this week," reported The New York Times.

"Sen. Pat Toomey said Sunday that President Donald Trump should resign from office and could face "criminal liability" after the deadly insurrection at the US Capitol, becoming the second Republican senator to call for the President's resignation." I think at this point, with just a few days left, it's the best path forward, the best way to get this person in the rearview mirror for us that could happen immediately," the Pennsylvania Republican told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union." "I'm not optimistic it will. But I think that would be the best way forward," reported CNN.com.

Trump Loses All Social Media

As a fallout over what has been determined as inciteful, seditious and treasonous rhetoric President Trump in a shocking move by Jack Dorsey's Twitter, has permanently suspended the President's accounts.

With the preferred mode of his communication lost, the president initially took to the White House Twitter account, until his tweets were removed also. The president has been rendered mute across his very large social media platforms.

Death Follows

The storming of the capitol building, which since January 6, 2021, has been replayed across media outlets and social media and captured in still photography in newspapers around the world. With these images and the on the ground footage, the disparities shown to the group of subversives whose intent was to disrupt the electoral process and burn the ballots if possible, essentially an act of domestic terror.

The initial gathering planned as a protest, which had been teased through all forms of media for two weeks and billed on social media as, "an explosion on January 6." Capitol Police had ample time to ensure the process was protected against insurgents.

The United States has backslid in its security efforts. Have we returned to the day when men can walk through Airline security and hijack planes? Are we now at a time, where militias of American citizens intent on starting a civil war can overthrow the small, and ineffective, police force that is charged with defending the nation's capital, its public servants, and our electoral process?

Failure in security is only one of the issues exposed from January 6. Resignations and admissions of ill preparedness won't remedy the root cause. The security of the United States capital is lax, and it is now known to our enemies and allies around the world.

Peaceful Turns Deadly

Gunshots rang out in the halls of Congress as terrorists, after breaking windows, breeching the walls, igniting tear gas, and running over the U.S. Capitol police, were subdued before they could enter the House chambers.

The woman fatally shot inside the Wednesday has been identified as Ashli Babbit. Babbit, a 14-year veteran who served four tours with the Air Force and resided in San Diego, was scene kicking out a window attempting to breech the House of Representatives Chamber. She was also known as a staunch Trump supporter.

Three other members of the Trump Militia died of medical emergencies and not directly related to the events.

"Benjamin Phillips, 50, from Ringtown, Pennsylvania; Kevin Greeson, 55, from Athens, Alabama; and Rosanne Boyland, 34, from Kennesaw, Georgia all died from medical emergencies on the grounds of the Capitol, Washington, D.C., police Chief Robert Contee III said in a press conference Thursday," USAToday.com reported.

Capitol Police Officer Killed in Attack, Second Commits Suicide

Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, a military veteran who served his country in Saudi Arabia and in the New Jersey Air National Guard was "pepper-sprayed and fatally bludgeoned" by a pro trump supporter while he attempted to defend the insurgence and subsequently died from his injuries.

A second officer "Officer Howard Liebengood, a 15-year veteran of the force, "was among the officers who responded to the rioting at the U.S. Capitol" on Wednesday, when insurrectionists incited by President Trump attacked the seat of American government, " The New York Times reported.
