    Just another fun Saturday night in Portland. Federal building being attacked with agents having to hide inside from "ideas".

    "Antifa isn't a group; it's an an idea" - Joe Biden

    I think Trump being banned from tweets reduced the risk biggly

    Censorship of political leaders increases divisions.

    I do see what you mean......
    this is an exceptionally good point!


    One of the reasons as to why I am so hopeful is that I do consider Mr. Jarrin Jackson to be exceptionally well informed on an angle on this that even AmericanThinker is not fully aware of.


    Is Mr. Jarrin Jackson the best at analyzing President Trump's situation?

    and on that note.. .I did not yet listen to Mr. Jackson's latest update on how he thinks things are going......

    ~ Some people do not pay attention at all to the sad facts in front of us. It is quite obvious that " insurrection " will be tolerated as evidenced by recent events - particularly in Democrat run cities and states. Only Capitol Hill was needlessly "protected" as a show of theatrical drama while working-class neighborhoods are left to burn.

    Police in Seattle and Portland obeyed the law and obeyed orders. They did not act on a personal political agenda. And that's just how they would act with any mob foolish enough to attempt to overthrow the government.

    If there is going to be a civil war, it will be because of people like you that think the opposition to your ideology are terrorists and treating them as such.

    Truly well said!

    A guy named Robert David Steele also does some brilliant analysis of all that is happening......
    but I tend to put the links to his messages over in the Conspiracy forum............
    (for the next three months anyway but after March 4, 2021.... his links may fit
    right in over here as well).

    Because the following concept is kind of funny there is a segment of the population who will
    catch onto this faster....... especially once they begin looking for somebody to blame for what just happened......

    Are many of Joe Biden's troubles P. M. Justin Trudeau's fault?


    actually yes... I am thinking more like hundreds of thousands.... or even more...... perhaps millions.... our P. M. is kind of "famous"... or something like that!

    Because silencing the opposition leads to unity and peace.

    It is government censorship of political opponents which is most likely to lead to a real civil war. Senate Democrats called for Big Tech to increase banning and silencing during the hearings with Twitter and Facebook CEO's. Now that a Democrat is heading every committee in the House and Senate, they are in control of whether they "allow" Big Tech to maintain their oligarchy power or whether they use anti-trust to break them up. That provides that impetus for the CEO's to cave in and censor people for nothing other than the basis of political affiliation. Big Tech is an "unofficial" arm of the Democrat-controlled government now.

    Chillingly, Biden is quickly moving toward a focus on "Domestic Terrorism". The very first cabinet appointee to be confirmed was Avril Haines, Director of the National Security Council. While working under Obama-appointee, John Brennan, Haines determined it was legal to put people on Obama's "kill list", resulting in both foreign and American citizens abroad, who committed no crimes, being killed with no due process. The CIA was hacking into the Senate Intelligence Committee's computers to try to hide evidence of inhumane torture techniques being used by our government intelligence agencies.

    Pretty scary how easily federal government legislation on "Domestic Terrorism" could get out of control here on our own soil. This signifies a huge expansion of the Patriot Act. Will Biden only focus on actual terrorists? The Obama administration did not do so, and Biden is rebuilding that same team. Even if, by the grace of God, Biden's administration legitimately goes after a handful of people who are a domestic threat, will some future president be so constrained in using such immense power to essentially stomp people down once a precedent is set? Sounds like due process is about to go out the window for some citizens either way.

    John Brennan is on the air suggesting that even Libertarians can pose a security threat to "democracy". Biden's press secretary announced Friday that they are already making progress on DVE (domestic violent extremism) work with the incoming NSC/FBI/CIA and other public/private partners outside of government.

    Left-leaning Democracy Now interviewed a CIA whistleblower, John Kiriakou, about CIA/FBI torture about Avril Haines. For exposing CIA/FBI torture of innocents, Kiriakou was arrested and jailed.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Media scorned Trump for holding a Bible photo op in front of a burned historic church.

    Today, Black Lives Matter would probably not even attempt a peaceful protest near the Capitol grounds to speak out against extreme use of police force.

    Only the Progressives and Trump supporters are alarmed at watching Joe Biden set up a Police State in America to squelch dissent.

    How ironic.

    Oh well, at least the nation is no longer subject to "mean Tweets".

    Yes, arrest, torture and murder with no due process have been proven to be exceptionally effective containment measures by U.S. Intelligence.

    Biden is working on "Domestic Terrorism" as one of his first priorities. I expect punitive measures will be modeled after "successful" foreign War on Terror techniques which our government under CIA director, John Brennan, used against both guilty and innocent people (including Americans) on foreign soil: Torture and murder with no due process.

    Listen to John Brennan's current rhetoric now that he's a CNN contributor. He's publicly naming and threatening political dissidents as "monsters". That is not going to bring "unity".

    Yeah but Trump didn't incite violence or cause the capitol hill riot, so silencing him isn't about that at all, it's about silencing political opposition.

    I've posted this request multiple times on this forum, but could you quote from Trump's speech his incitment?

    any mention of 'civil war' should be considered terror language and be banned.

    Yeah, nah... removing free speech won't be that easy. It isn't that I believe that our wonderful Democrat neighbors wouldn't use DHS as a new Geheime Staats Polizei, it's that when THAT begins, the game changes for EVERYONE. You folks might want to pause and ponder before assuming that tens of millions of other AMERICANS will be cowed and silenced by such tactics. Would YOU be? Then why assume the rest of US wouldn't fight it with everything we have?
    When Brennan's little Gestapo wannabes begin to kick doors or grab and bag people for "wrong think", America will have seen its last peaceful day. THAT is something we all should desire to avoid. NO ONE WINS.
