US Capitol Attack January 6 2021

Florida An Outlier, Likely To Continue To Defy Common Decency By Government Leaders

This author and blogger lives in the “Sunshine” State, Florida, and has lived in South Florida since the summer of 1989.

Sadly, Florida has some of the most horrendous political leaders imaginable, with the state legislature heavily Republican, and promoting right wing extremism in every way they can.

The Governor, Ron DeSantis, has no concern about public health in the midst of the COVID 19 Pandemic.

The former Governor, now a US Senator, Rick Scott, has a record of Medicare fraud, but was allowed to run for public office after paying a fine, rather than serve time in prison, and he has a steel heart.

The other Senator, Marco Rubio, is a mediocre Senator and not very bright, although less harmful than DeSantis and Scott.

Only in South Florida do Democrats have much impact, other than in selected Congressional districts in the central part of the state.

And Florida is the home of the disgraced former President, Donald Trump, who continues to divide the nation, and perpetrate a big lie that he won the Presidential Election Of 2020, and he has blood on his hands by having incited the US Capitol Insurrection on January 6, 2021.

Florida desperately needs a renaissance in state government and in national representation, as it is an outlier defying common decency, and is likely to see all three statewide officials competing for President in 2024, unless Trump is somehow able to poison the nation again.

In any case, right now, all three Florida leaders are competing with many others for Trump’s endorsement and support, so common decency is not present in Florida Government in 2021.

Donald Trump’s Continuing War On Truth, And Continued Mission To Divide America!

Three months since the January Capitol Insurrection, and former President Donald Trump is still continuing the war on truth, and continues his mission to divide America.

Trump still contends he won the Presidential Election of 2020, despite all of the 61 lawsuits that were dismissed, and he still condemns Mike Pence for doing his constitutional duty, and has lashed out at many Republican officeholders, including Mitch McConnell.

Trump has expressed no sorrow over the loss of life and injuries caused by his minions attacking the US Capitol, and is showing total lack of morality, ethics, compassion, and empathy, all attributes he has NEVER had.

Trump is a nightmare for the Republican Party and the nation, and yet he still gets a majority of Republicans in public opinion polls to swear loyalty to him, as he continues to promote the BIG LIE technique used in the 20th century by Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany!

The threat to the US Capitol remains, but the prosecution and imprisonment of all of the Capitol rioters must move forward, and Donald Trump and those who aided him in his criminal actions surrounding the events of January 6, must be held responsible, and Donald Trump must serve prison time as a disgraced President, before the nation can move on from the nightmare four years of this despicable excuse for a human being!

Donald Trump (Alternative Reality) Defends Rioters in January 6 Capitol Insurrection As No Threat, And “Hugging And Kissing”!

Donald Trump, the former “Insurrectionist in Chief” and would be “Dictator in Chief” is trying to change history, when he said this week that the rioters in the January 6 Capitol Insurrection, which caused the death of Brian Sicknick, two other Capitol officers committing suicide, and more than one hundred injuries to other Capitol Officers, was a “zero threat”, and that his supporters were “hugging and kissing”!

The desecration at the US Capitol is also overlooked by a man who clearly is the most dangerous person to American democracy, and now faces legal actions on many fronts. Trump also had nothing to say about the threat to former Vice President Mike Pence, who the rioters were chanting that he should be hanged, and a noose was present outside the US Capitol!

Trump is poisoning the Republican Party, and his loyal followers still represent a threat in the coming years, and one can sadly expect other violence and destruction being perpetrated by his Fascist supporters, who are white supremacists, racists, nativists, antisemites, and a threat to civil order as domestic terrorists!

Donald Trump needs to be held accountable in a court of law for his massive crimes against women; his promotion of violence and bloodshed among his crazy followers; and his economic crimes!

Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson Emerges As Unapologetically Racist, A Variation Of Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy Sixty Years Ago!

Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson defeated the superb Senator Russ Feingold for his Senate seat in 2010 and 2016, a shocking state of affairs!

Johnson has embarrassed himself and his state with his outrageous racist and moronic utterances over the past ten years, but now he has gone beyond the pale in trying to claim that the January 6 Capitol Insurrection was really not so, even though five people died, and many Capitol Police were badly injured, in the process of the destruction and desecration in that building, the first time since the War of 1812!

And Johnson defends the white supremacists and racists who stormed the building, and says he would be more worried if Black Lives Matter demonstrators and Antifa, both promoting social justice and opposing Trump Fascism, had been involved in the attack.

Hopefully, Johnson will not run for reelection, but if he does, the motivation must be to remove from the Senate, as he is a total disgrace.

It reminds one of the similar tragedy of anti Communist “witch hunter” Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin defeating the great progressive Republican Senator Robert La Follette Jr, for his Senate seat in 1946, and then unleashing the disgraceful Red Scare, known as McCarthyism from 1950-1954.

And McCarthy’s chief aide, the infamous Roy Cohn, ended up later as an advisor to businessman Donald Trump, so the curse of Roy Cohn stretched from Joseph McCarthy, a true demagogic Fascist, to Donald Trump, another true demagogic Fascist!

Attorney General Merrick Garland Confirmed; Now Time For Prosecutions Of January 6 Traitors In Congress!

Attorney General Merrick Garland was finally confirmed today by a vote of 70-30 in the Senate.

It is now time for prosecutions of the January 6 Capitol Attack Conspirators, not only the men and women who stormed the building and threatened members of Congress, but also those traitors in Congress who promoted and encouraged the seditionist actions.

This includes the Senators and Congressmen who refused to support the Electoral College results, and those who took some of the people involved in the insurrection on tours of the building a day or two before.

The evidence is strong against Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Madison Cawthorn, Paul Gosar, Jim Jordan, Mo Brooks and others in the House, and against Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, and six other Senators. Also, House Republican leaders, including Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise and others need to be held accountable!

It is time for them to pay the price for their treasonous actions, and they all need the full prosecution and punishment that they deserve!

Mike Pence Is A Disgrace To The Vice Presidency, And Assuredly, Has No Future!

Mike Pence will go down in Vice Presidential history as a total disgrace to the office!

Pence demonstrated no guts, no courage, ever to oppose the abuse of Presidential power by Donald Trump!

Pence was a lackey, servile, a sycophant, totally obsequious, even though he claims to be a devout Christian, or better said, “a good Christian”!

But if one was truly, he would show his ethics and morality on the way Donald Trump handled his office, but instead he kowtowed to the point of behavior that would embarrass any man who has a conscience!

Even when he was directly threatened by Donald Trump supporters on January 6, 2021, he just fled, kept quiet for two months, and now defends Donald Trump’s false claims of a fixed election, all for his naked ambition to be President!

But Mike Pence will never gain the backing of Donald Trump, who refused even to call Pence for five days after his close shave with possible harm and death!

Mike Pence is pitiful, a coward, a man who cannot control his own behavior around women and calls his wife “Mother”, indicating deep seated psychological issues!

We have had horrific Vice Presidents come to us from the Republican Party, including Dan Quayle under George H. W. Bush; Spiro Agnew under Richard Nixon; and Dick Cheney under George W. Bush, but with all of their faults, none of them would be perceived as lacking in manhood as Mike Pence displayed in office, and now as a former Vice President who desperately wants to be President, but will, thankfully, never reach that office!

Lawsuit Against Donald Trump And Rudy Giuliani And Right Wing Hate Groups Under Ku Klux Klan Act Of 1871

A lawsuit against Donald Trump, Rudy Guiliani, and two right wing hate groups has been filed in court under the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, passed to deal with domestic terrorism in the South during Reconstruction after the Civil War.

This law was passed and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant, and now, the NAACP and Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson of Mississippi is taking the fight to hold Trump, Guiliani and the terrorist groups in the Capitol Insurrection of January 6, 2021 accountable under criminal law.

So these two racist demagogues will face trial and prosecution for their inciting the attack that caused the death of seven people, including three Capitol Hill Officers, and caused great damage to the Capitol Building, the symbol of American democracy!

And every member of Congress who participated in the scam about a corrupt Presidential Election of 2020 must also face similar lawsuits and trials, including Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, who claims that there was no Insurrection on January 6, 2021. For trying to promote that fake news alone, Johnson should be punished with expulsion and a prison term, as a disgrace to his state and to the institution of the US Senate!

The Capitol Police Force: True Heroes Who Need To Be Applauded And Appreciated For Their Sacrifices!

The US Capitol Police Force demonstrated great courage on the day of the Capitol Insurrection, January 6, 2021.

The tragedy of Brian Sicknick being murdered, and two other officers committing suicide after the horrific event, is a tremendous sacrifice. It needs to lead to prosecution of former President Donald Trump, after the end of the Second Impeachment Trial, made more outrageous by the reality that there has been no expressions of regret or sorrow by Trump.

Capitol Hill Police Officer Eugene Goodman was given notice of a Congressional Gold Medal, for steering the insurrectionists away from the Senate chamber, and saving Senator Mitt Romney and others in the process,

Other officers will also be rewarded for their sacrifices.

The Capitol Police Force are true heroes who need to be applauded and appreciated for their sacrifices!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Brilliant, And Very Perceptive About Truth Of Capitol Insurrection

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York is a brilliant young woman, highly perceptive about the truth of the Capitol Insurrection of January 6, 2021, an event she lived through in fear and terror of being assassinated.

It is clear that the right wing Fascist mob that attacked the Capitol had the goal of hanging Vice President Mike Pence; putting a bullet in the head of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi; and pursuing minority Democratic Congressmen and women as part of a racist, white supremacist conspiracy.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sensed that new freshmen Republican Fascists, including Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, and Lauren Boebert of Colorado, along with veterans including Jim Jordan of Ohio, as well as Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Missouri Senator Josh Hawley were ready and willing to provoke right wing extremists to fix the Electoral College results, and kill or maim whoever stood in their way!

It is Ocasio-Cortez and others like her with courage and brains who are working to expose the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about the willingness of these traitors and seditionists to kill as many Democrats as they could, as well as the top two office holders under the President!

Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and Eight Other Republicans In House Of Representatives Buck The Trump Tide

Ten Republican members of the House of Representatives have been pilloried for having principles, and voting to impeach Donald Trump in the second impeachment he has faced, with the trial coming up next week.

The two best known members of this group are Liz Cheney of Wyoming, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, and third ranking in the Republican House leadership as the House Republican Conference Chair; and Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger, who has been a regular critic of Donald Trump over a period of time.

But the others who have also become part of this select group of principled Republicans also face anger and threats from other Republicans and from portions of their voting populations.

These include:

Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio
Peter Mejier of Michigan
Dan Newhouse of Washington
Fred Upton of Michigan
John Katko of New York
Tom Rice of South Carolina
Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washingto
David Valadao of Washington

Meanwhile, seditious Congressmen and Congresswomen, such as Jim Jordan of Ohio, Paul Gosar of Arizona, Andy Harris of Maryland, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, and most notably Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, and innumerable others, have committed and been involved in promoting criminal acts, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California has made clear his goal is to take action against the ten principled members, and support the traitors instead!
