Watching a press conference by DC Mayor, Bowser, and relevant team leaders involved in security for the inauguration, and they seem to have things well covered. This information comes after seeing and hearing headline reports of thousands of National Guard personnel around a very well secured DC in the days before and after the event.

 

Two questions come to mind;

 

Are there sufficient National Guard and other security measures being made available for the 50 State capitals which will be subject to an onslaught of very well publicised armed protests?

 

The security appears to be very much based on the presence of human restriction in the area, but given how mad these bastards are, and with the amount of ex-servicemen among their ranks with specialist expertise, is there any focus on the possibility of an external threat, such as aerial or even a remote launched missile attack?

 

They may sound either naive or sensationalist, or both, but it's been something I've been thinking about, as surreal as it may be to think of this.

What about the current servicemen amongst their ranks? What about Q in Congress?

Everyone's favorite Wookie - the QAnon Shaman - he of organic prison food - has had his lawyer publicly call for a pardon from Trump cuz "he owes it to him."

 

This is a thread on the prosecution filing to keep him in custody. I get the impression they don’t like him...

 

Starts here...

Pelosi just appointed retired Lt. Gen. Russell Honoré to investigate Capitol security. Comes with a rep as a bit of a badass. Looking at his Twitter stream he looks like he has no time for QAnon and the Proud Boys, or the Capitol police alleged to have been involved in allowing the protesters in. May get interesting.

Excerpt from the prosecution papers of that Jenna Ryan bird who took a private jet to the Capitol protests. Love the bit where she takes time out from insurrection to do some business networking.

And this is from an article on various rioters. Crying laughing.

 

Quote

Ryan, who runs a life-coaching business called SelfLoveU and has previously hosted an advertising segment on a local radio station, dug in further on Twitter, retweeting election conspiracies and offering to provide real estate services if Texas secedes from the Union. 
 

“Can’t face federal charges for exercising my right to freedom of speech and assembly,” she wrote last week, adding that she was “an innocent person who is not a professional rioter; someone just living and standing up for what I believe in.” 

 

“You can never cancel Jenna Ryan,” she wrote. However, by Monday, she said her publisher had canceled her self help book that was due out next month.

I wonder what her clients would have thought, had the "Life or death, it doesn't matter, here we go" bit, gone to the extreme, if their property was being handled be a dead realtor.

Was just going to post this. If true, it looks like he might not be going peacefully! 

Its the old 'show my notes to the camera' trick. Worth a few more million to Trump's funding.

Interesting Joe Rogan podcast in the wake of the Capital Coup.

 

”Whoever has the power is the danger to your civil liberties....the price you pay for free speech, is that some of it is hard to listen to”

That video starts with the premise:

 

"When people say they want to ban hate speech, what they mean is, they want to ban the speech that they hate"

 

Which is incorrect. So I stopped there. Does it get any better?

No, that’s pretty much it. He does say that as corporations, Facebook, Twitter, etc, have the right to withhold publishing that they disagree with, but because these platforms are bigger than anything we’ve known in the past, they have the power.

 

Basically he’s saying ‘it’s early days’ in terms of where it will lead us to. Probably better than having the government do it. (Mcarthy-ism)

How come Joe Rogan dropped loads of far right interviews from his podcast when he took millions from Spotify?

Spotify probably called the shots, don’t you think?

I don't think that's always incorrect but either way I just watched up to 6 mins and the guy explained what he meant more clearly by that point.

Hopefully we can evolve as a species to the point that "hate speech" is never a thing we consider having any types of laws for because we simply understand that it's stupid and there's no point in it.

 

That's surely the best solution, even if it does seem utopian where we are at this point, which by comparison is some type of dark age of people getting sucked into all types of shit from the result of it and getting overly offended when there's no benefit to that. No speech with negative aims can touch us if we use our awareness properly and it's only the reaction that the speech triggers, maybe that should be the focus instead. Educating people not to forget what they or their friends, families, communities or races have gone through related to hate speech and where it's often led, but instead to work towards letting all of the negative effects of it pass.

 

Not like the global elites are going to help us get to work on that enough though when one of their main aims is divide and conquer. We'll probably have to try and work towards it ourselves for the most part.

 

I get that it's also easier for me to sit here typing this as a white person when people of other races have gone through all types of horrors related to hate speech, propaganda and so on. I think the solution is easy to word out in seconds but if it ever became a reality putting it into effect could take a long time and a lot of people would have to deal with shitloads of trauma related to it all.

 

tl;dr : hate speech isn't the real problem I don't think, it's used as a distraction. The real problem is our reaction to it and lack of awareness.
