In reality, Petey Buttgag's communist daddy helped MAKE the Kool-Aid.

Petey was what is known as a "Red Diaper Baby" which explains a lot about his extreme Leftism today.

WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that former President Donald Trump cannot prevent the House Jan. 6 committee from getting hundreds of documents that were created when he was in the White House.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that although Trump retained some authority to claim executive privilege, it was not strong enough to overcome President Joe Biden's decision that Congress has a legitimate need for the material.

"The executive privilege for presidential communications is a qualified one that Mr. Trump agrees must give way when necessary to protect overriding interests. The president and the legislative branch have shown a national interest in and pressing need for the prompt disclosure of these documents," Judge Patricia Millett wrote for the court.

Trump's lawyers are likely to file an emergency appeal with the Supreme Court to block the release. The court put a 14-day hold on its own ruling to give his lawyers time to pursue an appeal.

The appeals court said Trump could not show any specific harm that he would suffer from the disclosure of the documents.

Millett closed her ruling by quoting a remark attributed to Benjamin Franklin that we have a “Republic, if [we] can keep it.”

“The events of January 6th exposed the fragility of those democratic institutions and traditions that we had perhaps come to take for granted,” she wrote. “In response, the President of the United States and Congress have each made the judgment that access to this subset of presidential communication records is necessary to address a matter of great constitutional moment for the Republic.” . . .
That's already about half of the text that's there to read. It's prefaced with a video report from perennial NBC News correspondent Pete Williams that runs for 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

"Appeals court rules against Trump in fight over Jan. 6 committee documents request"

On Thursday evening, a "stoked" Rachel Maddow highlighted some of the language in the ruling from the three-judge panel.

Worth a reminder:


https://www.newsweek.com/jo...twing-antifa-1561898


"Prior to entering the Capitol building, Sullivan can be seen using a microphone to address the crowd outside and yelling "we about to burn this s**t down" before leading the crowd in a chant of "it's time for a revolution," FBI Special Agent Matthew Foulger said in an affidavit.


As the mob pushed through barricades towards the Capitol, Sullivan was heard shouting: "We accomplished this s**t. We did this together. F**k yeah! We are all a part of this history," and "Let's burn this s**t down."


Following the attack, Sullivan gave a number of media interviews including to CNN and ABC's Good Morning America where he discussed being inside the Capitol during the attempted siege.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Sullivan said: "I was worried about people recognizing me and thinking that I was Antifa or, like, BLM or whatever.

“As I detailed several weeks ago, so many of the most harrowing and widespread media claims about the January 6 riot proved to be total fabrications.

A pro-Trump mob did not bash Office Brian Sicknick’s skull in with a fire extinguisher.

No protester brought zip-ties with them as some premeditated plot to kidnap members of Congress (two rioters found them on a table inside).

There’s no evidence anyone intended to assassinate Mike Pence, Mitt Romney or anyone else.




Yet the maximalist narrative of an attempted coup or armed insurrection is so crucial to Democrats — regardless of whether it is true — that pointing out these facts deeply infuriates them.”




““Ultimately, if this “armed insurrection” and threat of domestic terrorism are so grave, why do media figures and politicians in both parties — from Adam Schiff to Liz Cheney — keep lying about it and peddling fictions?

Politicians and media figures do that only when they know that the threat, in reality, is not nearly as menacing as they need it to be to fulfill their objectives of political gain and coercive power..”

"ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl believes January 6 rioters were searching for ballots"
 
quote
Karl believes Jan. 6 rioters who ransacked the Senate parliamentarian’s office were searching for [the] state ballots [from electors that had been delivered] to Washington, D.C. that day to be certified, [in order] to destroy them in an attempt to further disrupt the election.

“One of the striking things about the riot was that the room that got ransacked the most was the parliamentarian’s office. And I believe those rioters were searching for the ballots with the intent of destroying them.”



And I thought I'd already been tipped to everything worth remembering about the Capitol Building incursion on January 6.

Its hard to decide if the most twisted lies are the initial story they make up, or the creative later ones.

Also to note, the media must be using a new word for it now, to be puppeted?

incursion
n.
1. An aggressive entrance into foreign territory; a raid or invasion.
2. The act of entering another's territory or domain.
3. The act of entering or running into.

I don't think there is anything surprising or "hard to swallow" about the idea that some of the January 6 people were thinking that they could get their hands on the Electoral College ballots by rummaging through the Senate parliamentarian's office.

I seriously doubt that this was an idea that came from Trump or any of his closest advisors and confidantes.

YUP.

There is nothing new about this so-called story, other than it's just another bullshit twist on the bullshit narrative.

The Leftist media was hooting about the Senate Parliamentarian's office being ransacked THE DAY AFTER IT HAPPENED




The Pennocks Purveyor Of Perjury's latest propagandist "hero", ABC Johnny the dead horse beater, is almost A YEAR LATE to the party with his unfounded speculation.

"1832"

It's not a new brand of "olde time" beer or root beer. It's the last time a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives had been voted "In Contempt" by the House--until yesterday. Among the House Republicans, only Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger joined the Democrats to vote to hold former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadowns in contempt, for refusing to testify before the "Jan. 6" committee.

Everyone already knows that, including the voters in their respective home districts.

All the rest of it is just your usual obsessive propaganda bullshit.

Your preoccupation with meaningless crap and trivial nonsense continues wildly unabated.

Cheney's 2022 reelection chances range between none and none. She's underwater by 20 points.

Kinzinger announced he isn't running again in 2022 and his (former) R constituents are gleeful.


As for Mr. Meadows, he and Mr. Bannon will spend as much time in jail, (none), and pay similar fines, (nothing), as did other people contemptuous of Congress, like Eric Holder (255–67) and Lois Lerner (231-187)


OH, and as far as that moronic "1832" reference, Sam Houston, (yes that Sam Houston), was reprimanded but not censured and never spent a moment in jail or paid any fines....the same as Mr. Meadows fate will be.

As of today the FBI has officially determined that THERE WAS NO INSURRECTION and that THERE WAS NO LARGE ORGANIZED CONSPIRACY BY ANY "RIGHT WING" GROUPS and that NEITHER FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP NOR ANY OF HIS ASSOCIATES OR ADVISORS WERE INVOLVED IN ANY PLANNING OF A RIOT OR VIOLENCE arising from the MOSTLY PEACEFUL events of the January 6, 2021 rally in DC.

As of today the Leftist Congress is trying to soak the American taxpayers for HALF A BILLION DOLLARS in "damages" after telling the DOJ and the federal courts that the capitol building sustained $1.5 million in damages.

As of today 6 Capitol police officers are facing disciplinary action for their actions related to the MOSTLY PEACEFUL January 6, 2021 rally in DC

Get their hands on the Electoral College ballots ? ? ? ?

Do you really think that there are paper Electoral College ballots ? No doubt that it was not an idea that came from Trump or any of his closest advisors and confidantes.

What do you think are inside those mahogany wood boxes that feature in the reporting? They're just empty mahogany wood boxes?

If you know more about this than I do, by all means set me straight.

"Proud Boy pleads guilty to felony charge in Capitol riot"
Rachel Weiner for the Washington Post; December 22, 2021.
https://www.washingtonpost....ew-greene-proud-boy/

"IT'S NOT EASY BEING GREENE"
 
quote
A New York man who was a member of the Proud Boys pleaded guilty Wednesday to obstructing Congress and conspiring to obstruct law enforcement during the pro-Trump riot on Jan. 6.

The plea to the felony charge is significant because Matthew Greene, 34, of Syracuse admitted coordinating with other New York-based members of the extremist group at the front of the Capitol mob, although there is no evidence he actually entered the building. Greene is the first self-admitted member of the Proud Boys to plead guilty in a felony conspiracy case stemming from the riot and agree to cooperate with law enforcement. He is set to be sentenced March 10.

 
quote
Pepe and Pezzola are also both defendants in a lawsuit filed by D.C.'s attorney general accusing members of the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers, another far-right group, of working together to “terrorize the district.” Greene is not named in that case.

 
quote
Greene’s plea comes two days after a federal judge overseeing an Oath Keepers conspiracy case found that the felony obstruction of Congress charge does not violate the Constitution. The judge overseeing Greene’s case has made a similar finding, although not in writing.


The case is also described, more summarily, in a new press release from the United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia:

"New York Man Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy and Obstruction Charges Related to Jan. 6 Capitol Breach"

Defendant Planned Activities as Member of Proud Boys Chapter in Central New York

Having failed in his bid to receive a 100% lifetime disability check and having apparently also failed to keep getting media attention for himself by chasing and harassing various Republican members of Congress the infamous crybaby now finds himself despised and deeply mistrusted by nearly the entire U.S. Capitol police force and has chosen to quit and become a temporary paid tool of CNN until the 2022 midterm elections are over.

"Fanone's appearances in Congress and on cable news drew scorn from his colleagues, he told The Post.

"I no longer felt like I could trust my fellow officers and decided it was time to make a change."

It's about YOU breaking the posting rules.....those same posting rules that you hoot endlessly at others about...and having your attempted "insurrection end run" thread SHUT DOWN by Cliff Pennock.

Rick knows it. williegoat knows it. I know it. Everyone knows it.

The rules on this forum apply to YOU just like they do to everyone else.....you just somehow think they don't.

Here is another clue why major media coverage concerning Jan 6 was and continues to be an overblown scare fest. It helps keep us divided, it sells fear, and among other things it promotes one of the end goals of: in effect removing the 2nd amendment. Prepping listeners into a frenzy as "the next one" gets closer...

https://www.ammoland.com/20...trump-loses-in-2024/

"Newsweek: Armed Republicans will Overthrow Government if Trump Loses in 2024"

"There is fearmongering, and then there is Newsweek-level fearmongering. The once-respected news magazine – which a former reporter recently described as “a painful embarrassment to anyone who toiled there in its golden age,” which is now known for its incendiary click-bait – is at it again, blasting conservatives, gun owners and the Second Amendment, while warning its shrinking über-woke readership of a coming civil war.

A recent story by their science writer, David H. Freedman, titled “Millions of Angry, Armed Americans Stand Ready to Seize Power If Trump Loses in 2024,” is so biased, so heavily spun and just so damn creepy, it defies belief that it was actually set into type by an alleged news publication, or what purports to be a news publication or, more accurately, what used to be an actual news publication.

Those responsible for this inflammatory hit piece should be ashamed. It went lightyears beyond the normal partisan sniping. It defames conservatives, the military and everyone who owns a gun.
Like most anti-gun stories, there are no facts or data. Rather, Freedman stacked a few quotes from anti-gun “experts,” added a dash of propaganda from Everytown, slapped on his byline and hit send.

He opens by creating a straw man out of a 73-year-old Vietnam veteran who, like millions of other Americans, does not support the Biden-Harris administration.

“He is one of many rank-and-file Republicans who own guns and in recent months have talked openly of the need to take down – by force if necessary – a federal government they see as illegitimate, overreaching and corrosive to American freedom,” Freedman wrote.

And then the unprecedented lies begin to flow:

“In 2020, 17 million Americans bought 40 million guns and in 2021 were on track to add another 20 million. If historical trends hold, the buyers will be overwhelmingly white, Republican and southern or rural,” he wrote.

Historical trends? Actually, an overwhelming number of liberal city dwellers including many people of color bought their first firearm over the past two years.
“The idea that people would take up arms against an American election has gone from completely farfetched to something we have to start planning for and preparing for,” Freedman quoted UCLA law professor Adam Winkler as saying. He described Winkler as “an expert on gun policy and constitutional law.”

I wonder how the good professor thinks we should start preparing for a civil war. Build internment camps? Abolish Fourth Amendment protections? Electronically chip and track any American suspected of disloyalty?

“An October study from Everytown for Gun Safety and the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED) looked at 560 protests involving armed participants over an 18-month period through mid-2021, and found that a sixth of them turned violent, and some involved fatalities,” he wrote.

Personally, I trust Everytown data about as much as I’d trust a $20 EOTECH from Wish.com.
“If armed violence erupts the 2024 elections, quelling it could fall to the U.S. military, which may be reluctant to take arms against U.S. citizens,” Freedman wrote. “In that case, the fate of the nation might well be decided by a simple fact: a big subset of one of the two parties has for years been systemically arming itself for this very reason.”

In other words, Freedman says the military is unlikely to fire on American citizens, so Republicans and Democrats will shoot it out amongst themselves unhindered, and only Republicans actually own guns since they’ve been prepping for a civil war for years. Sure, pal.

“Absent a strong response from some combination of police, National Guard and military, it’s easy to see how Republicans would be in a position to essentially take control of the country simply by virtue of their massive arsenal,” Freedman claims.
...

Freedman’s work isn’t a typical opinion piece. It’s defamatory and harmful – by far the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s so far over the top that we cannot let it stand without voicing strong opposition. If you would care to share your thoughts with Newsweek’s editors, you can reach them at support@newsweek.com

One of the main reasons we created the Second Amendment Foundation’s Investigative Journalism Project was to counter the legacy media’s lies and false narratives. However, I never dreamed I’d ever see anything this bad. In my humble opinion, Newsweek’s story is dangerous – damn near an open declaration of war."


-

Is the Ammoland article slanted? Sure. Accurate? Seems like it.

Newsweek's article seems to me to be made to incite fear, and prompt those who are afraid to remove rights from their fellow citizens, I.E. from themselves.


incite
verb (used with object), in·cit·ed, in·cit·ing.
to stir, encourage, or urge on; stimulate or prompt to action:
