How did a horned Shamen end up representing the Christian right?

It was the perfect PsyOp photo. With hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters to pick from, somehow the photo on every media front page last week was of Jake Angeli standing in The Capitol. Listen to him talk about his beliefs to ward off evil spirits and witches.

Try to think of an image designed to horrify middle America more than a hairy chested horned man with tats and bare nipples in a furry hunting hood? Perhaps a hooded storm-trooper with an AK47 smattered in blood. But that might be confused with Antifa.

Nothing says barbaric quite as well as an escapee from the neolithic. So once Angeli was inside the heart of Democracy, it’s no accident or conspiracy that the hate-media picked up his photo.

The question is, why was the door open to Mr Horns, but a bullet headed for the Air Force Vet?

How is it, that the path to the Speakers Chair was blocked from so many but not to the most toxic photo-op possible? If Ashli Babbitt was sitting in the chair instead, the Shock and Awe campaign wouldn’t have had much ammo.

It’s almost like a PR committee sat down to ask: “What photo do we want to associate Trump with to horrify good Americans?”

        Ohio Focus Group, 77 Percent Like Trump More, 23 Percent Same Opinion, Zero Percent Like Less

        There is no precedent here. Seventy-four million angry Americans resolved to a common objective is not something to be trifled with. The extreme actions taken by all of the social media tech oligarchs to control their platforms is a result of the need to control a large assembly of voices who can see the illegitimacy of JoeBama’s presidency.

        We do not yet know where this current political crisis is going to end; but we do know that 74,000,000+ Americans will not accept the outcome of a political process transparently filled with fraud and manipulation. That makes President Trump a very dangerous entity to the DC system; thus, the intense efforts to ridicule, isolate and marginalize.

        There is no reference point for 74+ million Americans being disenfranchised by Wall Street, bribery, corporations, media and big tech. That 74+ million person army is fuel for a stunning and cataclysmic shift in the American landscape.

        The Republican wing of the UniParty vulture has destroyed itself… Things will never go back to the place they were before.

      PeterS – the following article could be our future and remember Alphabet – Google owns DeepMind

      Calculations Show It’ll Be Impossible to Control a Super-Intelligent AI

      The idea of artificial intelligence overthrowing humankind has been talked about for many decades, and scientists have just delivered their verdict on whether we’d be able to control a high-level computer super-intelligence. The answer? Almost definitely not.

      The catch is that controlling a super-intelligence far beyond human comprehension would require a simulation of that super-intelligence which we can analyse. But if we’re unable to comprehend it, it’s impossible to create such a simulation.

      Rules such as ’cause no harm to humans’ can’t be set if we don’t understand the kind of scenarios that an AI is going to come up with, suggest the authors of the new paper. Once a computer system is working on a level above the scope of our programmers, we can no longer set limits.

      “A super-intelligence poses a fundamentally different problem than those typically studied under the banner of ‘robot ethics’,” write the researchers.

      “This is because a superintelligence is multi-faceted, and therefore potentially capable of mobilising a diversity of resources in order to achieve objectives that are potentially incomprehensible to humans, let alone controllable.”

        “seems to appear at most street parties ie Antifa and BLM. ”

        Seems to appear? You seem very uncertain. And can you be sure that, if indeed a “hairy chested horned man with tats and bare nipples in a furry hunting hood” rally does appear at Antifa and BLM, is he really Mr Angeli or an imposter?

        The Right is getting even more desperate as Trump himself was clear that the Capitol invaders were his supporters, and even though the president had encouraged his followers to go to Washington and disrupt the certification of an election outcome that he falsely claimed was illegitimate.

        Still, all being well, only a few days to go until Biden is inaugurated and perhaps this will

          Ian — “Trump himself was clear that the Capitol invaders were his supporters” Not exactly “his.”

          Who were the insiders on the House side of vast Capitol building handing out baseball bats to rioters? Republican law makers don’t do such things, ever.

          And now cones word that the FBI had foreknowledge of violent plotters, especially coming from New York City, who planted IEDs or pipe bombs in the Capitsl building, some found in cars.

          The FIB knew but did not brief the President:

          the official timeline of events constructed by the New York Times through videos shows protesters began breaching the perimeter of the Capitol a full 20 minutes before Trump finished his speech.

          This new evidence raises the first compelling question that remains unanswered. How could Trump incite an attack that had already been pre-planned and was in motion before his speech ended?

          A senior intelligence official told Just the News he has found no evidence that the president, the White House or the National Security Council was alerted in formal intelligence briefings to the pre-warnings or suspicions of violence the FBI and NYPD have admitted they had.

            Interesting speculation.

            Earlier today, REDPILED Media released an exclusive report identifying Ashli Babbitt’s killer as US Capitol Special Agent David Bailey — the same man who let US Rep. Steve Scalise get shot nearly to death in 2017.

            Now, REDPILLED Media has uncovered evidence confirming our previous reporting through self-incriminating Facebook posts, and revealing Agent Bailey as a Brazilian immigrant who has pledged his allegiance to the deadly Black Lives Matter movement — even going so far as vowing to murder Trump supporters.

            I hope that the truth gets out about the FBI and Capitol police being warned days before the Capital entry that this was to happen. And hey, guess what. Nobody is saying it, but it is very likely it was Antifa plans to enter the Capitol that were known about.

            Nancy is in charge of Capitol police and its very unlikely she would not have been made aware of the issue. If she was aware then all her huffing and puffing has been a complete series of lies and smearing. But what else would one expect of her, who has been totally venomous towards Trump and his supporters at every turn.

              On FOX this morning , it was revealed that the FBI knew two days before the incursion, that ‘known white supremacists on their FBI watchlist’ were planning to be at the Capitol on the day of the protest.

              The FBI notified the police ..even including NYPD…but didn’t notify Trump or his people.

              If that’s true ..and I think it’s official…it would mean that they wanted the Trump supporters to be infiltrated and tarnished…and especially Trump of course….and they sat on it to give the Dems time to impeach.

              I’m pretty sure they said the Capitol police were informed…so Pelosi should have known.

              Maybe they calculated that it was worth playing dead and risking loss of control of the situation…if they could get Trump tarred with the White Supremacist brush and thereby have a watertight pretext for impeachment.

              Hopefully there’s going to be a lot of egg-on-face for the likes of Liz Cheney and other RINOS re the rush to impeachment because Hannity’s announced that copious documents re the last four years regarding Hillary…Obama ..the spying on Trump etc have been declassified today.

          He has appeared twice before in Washington, and I have seen him at another Antifa party but I’m not sure which city it was. Does he attend all riots – I don’t know. The Epoch times have interviewed him accompanied by photographs, also Angeli is his stage name. He is a QAnon fan.

          A lot of videos have come forward to show Trump supporters trying to stop Antifa breaking windows. A Japanese reporter showed an Antifa person changing clothes from a MAGA Trump supporter to Antifa. This person was beside the lady who was shot. He then moved down the stairs to change his clothes.

          I recommend the Epoch Times if you want deeper and more detailed news.

      Liberal activist arrested, charged with participating in Capitol riot

      Activist has claimed he was there to film the event.

      Utah resident and anti-Trump activist John Sullivan told Just the News last week that he had been present at the riot, including inside the Capitol, “specifically [as] a journalist, just to record the events that were going down.”

      Yet FBI agent Matthew Foulger alleged in an affidavit on Wednesday that, rather than merely act as a journalist during the riots, Sullivan “knowingly and willfully joined a crowd of individuals who forcibly entered the U.S. Capitol and impeded, disrupted, and disturbed the orderly conduct of business by the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.”

      Foulger in the affidavit said that footage taken by Sullivan at the riot shows the activist accompanying and cheering on the rioting crowd by saying things such as “Let’s go. This shit is ours!” and “Let’s burn this shit down.”

      Sullivan has been arrested and charged pursuant to the incident, Salt Lake City station Fox 13 reported on Thursday evening. The station said the activist has been charged with “rioting and criminal mischief.”

      Ashli Babbitt was in a milling crowd and within 2 metres of a closed double door, with glass panels, I think at the head of a staircase, when she was shot. It would have been difficult to fire a shot and injure only one person. I estimate that there might have been 20 people, mostly in dark dress, within 5 metres of her at the time.
      There was no crowd on the other side of the door. The video that I saw showed a number of features which could identify people. I saw at least one shoulder mounted camera there. I didn’t see any broken glass.

        One of the US new media outlets (NBC?) put a video on YouTube with a name “Inside the Capitol riot” (or similar). It was the usual spin (rinse, repeat) drivel except for one thing. One of the well-equipped “protestors” (hint!) was supposedly carrying a gun, or at least that’s what the voice-over said. I wonder if it was (a) media exaggeration or (b) the gun that was used to shoot Ashli Babbit.

        One of the mainstream media outlets posted a YouTube video titles “Inside the capitol riots” (or similar). They showed supposed protesters – when do normal protesters have googles, dark glasses, home-made shields and changes of clothes? – include one people that the voice-over said was carrying a g.u.n. I wonder if this was true and not a media fabrication and I wonder whether it was used within the building.

      Rush to judgement? Three crucial questions remain unanswered about Capitol siege

      What did Nancy Pelosi know? A prior plot or spontaneous riot? Were there inside facilitators?

      One thing recent history has taught America is the first storyline of major tragedies or controversies is never the most accurate.

      Americans were told by the Bush administration that they were sucker-punched by a surprise attack on 9/11 by terrorists, only to learn the CIA and FBI had significant advance evidence of the plot and its players and failed to connect the dots.

      Susan Rice originally told the nation that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was carried out spontaneously by a mob angered by an anti-Muslim video. The attack, it turned out, was pre-planned and carried out by an al-Qaeda-aligned terror group in Libya.

      The country was assured Christopher Steele’s dossier provided credible evidence of Donald Trump colluding with Russia, when in fact the CIA and FBI knew almost immediately it was uncorroborated and based in part on Russian disinformation.

      And now just a week after the heinous and deadly siege of the U.S. Capitol, the final narrative of what actually happened is still being written, revised and unmasked.

      Since the weekend, major bombshell revelations already have substantially revised the initial story of a spontaneous mob overrunning an unsuspecting Capitol police force.

      The FBI admitted Tuesday it received information ahead of the Jan. 6 tragedy suggesting some participants were planning a “war” on the Capitol, including killing officers and distributing maps of the complex. It alerted Washington D.C. law enforcement through the joint terrorism task force alert system. It also “disrupted” the travel plans of some of the suspected trouble-makers.

      Exactly…Henning-Nielsen…

      And why can the FBI triumphantly say today that they’ve identified amongst the trespassers inside the Capitol……and arrested ….’known white supremacists who were on an FBI watchlist’…without any reporters or pundits asking why….if these people were on the FBI watchlist….were they allowed to get anywhere near the Capitol?

      Why were white supremacists allowed …by the FBI…to infiltrate a crowd of law-abiding protestors who have an unblemished record…over five years…of many joyful peaceful gatherings across the country….with zero violence?

      The FBI should be asked if they deliberately…maliciously…for political reasons… to aid their Democrat co-conspirators once again…. allowed that infiltration to go ahead…in order to discredit Trump and his supporters.

      Blind Freddie would have known white supremacist violence would be used against Trump….despite the fact that the Democrats are the party of the white supremacists historically.

      And now the insufferable lawless Comey who colluded with the Clinton campaign…Democrats…LW ‘journalists’…Russian spies and other nefarious characters to confect a dossier of lies …knowing it was bogus….to bring down the Trump Presidency… seeks attention and moral high ground for his miserable narcissist self…. by sanctimoniously pontificating that he thinks Trump should be pardoned .

      It’s not as if the collusion by the FBI to bring down ..first a candidate and then a Presidency… is not on the public record…and clearly admitted under oath by Comey.

      The forbearance of the Trump supporters amidst this five year long malevolent incitement by the Left…is truly remarkable….and Trump should pardon himself…his family members…all of his peacefully-protesting supporters …and Julian Assange….IMO.

    Trump set in place all that was needed to have a post-election trap created just for him, and then walked right into it.

    His opponents must not have believed they would be lucky enough for him to go through with the mass protest, but he did. Now the conversation has shifted away from the Stolen Election.

    From the evolving content of his tweets since Election Day, I get the impression that he has been going through the stages of a grieving process. With a cooler mind, he would not have planned this mass protest.

      The crowds fed Trump. It was always where he came across so well.

      He and Alex Jones both knew, as did the crowd, that Antifa would be there. They may not have realized the optics of a manufactured event that sprang in Congress itself.

      Presumably Trump was focused more on trying to get Pence to allow an extension of time and the States to decertify their votes.

      Pence has a lot to answer for by not at least declaring his honest position to Trump privately in the week leading up to it.

      It’s easy to say “in hindsight” it was a PR disaster, but it wouldn’t have been if we had honest media, or an honest FBI, or honest Dems/ RINO’s, or braver judges and state legislatures. Trump was working against every institution.

      Trump makes plenty of mistakes, his strength is that he never quits.
      Over turning the election was always a long shot. It’s one of those ‘Too big to fail’ things.

      The first step in fixing anything is acknowledging it’s broken.
      Trump has well and truly got that conversation started.
      There has been grumbles about US elections for ages, but no one has wanted to know.

Austin is a merry pranksters town so even “nucular combat” was treated with a sort of Strangelovian hilarity. My question is: what was a young woman veteran doing with the superstitious rabble gathered primarily to force women into involuntary labor and breeding?

    According to our progressive comrades,like Global Warming,there is nothing Donald J Trump cannot do.
    Somehow he was able to instigate a riot ,while giving a speech about 1 mile away,which went at least 1/2 an hour overtime..
    So the mystery deepens,how did Trump communicate to the Capitol Rioters?
    Was it by “Dog Whistle”?
    Telepathy?
    Time Machine?
    After all every presstitute is adamant,Trump did it,no allegedly,utter statement of fact,pure certainty..
    So why can they not show us how this miracle of communication was performed?
    And then,”The Trump Supporter”.
    I must lack that 6th sense by which Reporters,trolls,democrats and other such fools,can identify a “Trump Supporter”.

    However I guess we are playing by their rules now.
    I suspect they will not enjoy the experience.

      . Somehow he was able to instigate a riot ,while giving a speech about 1 mile away,which went at least 1/2 an hour overtime..
      So the mystery deepens,how did Trump communicate to the Capitol Rioters?

      If you are going to have a serious attempt at a discussion ,..it pays to think before you put it to print.
      If you can not think how Trump could have initiated the riot , (not that i think he did !) then do not bother trying to argue the point.
      Time lines , and distances , are not relevent..at no point did DJT say …”Lets attack the building now !”
      …But A simple innocent comment near the start of the speech,..relayed by on line coverage or mobile phone, to the leaders at the Capitol building…could be seen as “initiation of the events”… by someone with a point to make
      In this type of “inquisition” real evidence is not necessary ..only acusations !

        There are flyers everywhere telling people to go to the state capitols with arms on JAN 20, Trump is screaming dont go, dont be violent, follow the rule of law. Unfortunately no one can hear him due to censorship. He is censored because the deep state want to incite violence, the capitol attack was a false flag event the same as the JAN 20 event is a false flag, if it was not and the deep state truly want peace they would give Trump a platform to tell everyone not to go.

        The deep state is pathetic but they will be taken down before Joe Bananas becomes president

      It’s clear to me now why it all happened the way it did. More and more politicians including many Republicans wanted to see Trump out of office ASAP. He is now becoming a lone voice in a world screaming for the Great Reset and adoption of the climate change measures to stop climate change. I’m sure our PM Morrison would be happy too to see Trump gone. Sit back and watch the West keep on declining at a more rapid rate. Enjoy the ride. I wonder if many Americans though will sit back and do nothing once they see how badly things become. Only time will tell.

      In short, I think it was a set-up to leverage the most radical elements who exist in any crowd of that size and “dirty up” the Trump Supporters (who were the most polite and orderly crowed I’ve ever been in…), while providing RINO Swamp Dwellers cover to do a Bums Rush vote to accept Biden and dodge responsibility for endorsing the voting fraud.

      But hey, it worked. You gotta give them credit for that. DNC does dirty tricks better than anyone else…

      Chiefio’s conclusion is well said.

        One thing I noticed in Chiefio’s photos, from DC on Jan 6, was a discernible lack of globalist worming – oops, I mean climate change – what with everyone rugged up in layers & jackets & hoodies & beanies to keep from… freezing.

        And as for our antipodean ‘summer’, not only did it snow on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, AND New Year’s Day, there’s snow warnings for this weekend down south, in the middle of what used to be known as high summer. They were the best of times, they were the blurst of times!

    Our politicians in Ontario are absolutely freaking right now and has the whole Province on lockdown with law enforcement warnings and even used the emergency broadcast to enforced that Ontario is in lockdown which they never done before.
    They are blaming the Pandemic but our borders onto the US.
    Sounds like our politicians are terrified of January 20.

      I have no doubt that that and similar incidents will be engineered by the Left in order to make Trump and his supporters look bad. Just look to their instruction manual, Orwell’s “1984”, and the behaviour of their predecessors, the National Socialists and International Socialists.

        Get a life, this is not history repeating, its a clean slate.

        The authorities are determined to keep a lid on things and have a quiet transition in a robust political environment. So lets talk about the future, get rid of Second Amendment Rights and it will be a recognition to the world that the US is finally growing up.

                Donald has been beating the drum even before the election, deliberately stirring up the citizens. Like a tinpot politician desperate not to lose, very common in other parts of the world. He should be impeached and banished from political life, a warning to any other outlier who fancies taking on the oligarchic swamp.

            Problems often arises in political coalitions where fundamental divisions open up, we can see it happening in all democracies. There will be a honeymoon period and with the stimulus Biden will battle Covid and get the economy moving again.

            What about floating the concept of a universal basic income for all citizens? That might be too hard in this term, so how about universal health care? You see what I’m getting at, something really socialist to alleviate any grass roots tensions.

    We are dealing with an octopus … Advertising as news. It’s very skilfully done. The methods of seducing the media, the ingenuity of the spin has reached the point where we, as a general public, have never been lied to by such sophisticated means as now.

    Lies, fabrications, character assassinations, repetitional rapes, point scoring, axe grinding, sneering, smearing and generalised weaselling have become standard fare in the media.

    Did CNN Accidentally Prove That Trump Did NOT Incite the Violence at the Capitol?

    But according to a new report from CNN, “Evidence uncovered so far, including weapons and tactics seen on surveillance video, suggests a level of planning that has led investigators to believe the attack on the US Capitol was not just a protest that spiraled out of control, a federal law enforcement official says.”

    This completely undermines the entire case Democrats made for impeaching Trump.

    CNN’s story also seems to support other reports that that the FBI had warned Capitol Police a day before the assault that there was evidence that an attack on the Capitol was expected and being planned on social media platforms, including Twitter.

    The bottom line: CNN’s report contradicts everything the left has alleged about the violence at the Capitol and undermines the justification for impeaching Trump. The riot at the Capitol was either planned in advance, or inspired by President Trump’s speech. It simply cannot be both.

    Fox Business reporting that the FBI has arrested John Sullivan, a BLM protest organizer with a criminal record for inciting riots. Apparently the FBI have a lot of evidence he was the ringleader who trained and organized his usual suspects (FBI has their names too). More arrests are pending as the story unfolds.

      HUGE! CNN-NPR Photo-Journalist Jade Sacker was Embedded with Antifa Leader John Sullivan During Siege of US Capitol – Cheered “We Did It!” After Inciting Riot (VIDEO)

      Moments after Sullivan captured Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt getting shot and killed in the Capitol, a blonde woman accompanying Sullivan who appears to be his accomplice, Jade Sacker, gleefully exclaims, “We did it!”

      “You were right! We did it,” she boasts.

      “Dude, I was trying to tell you. I couldn’t say much,” Sullivan replies. “Is this not going to be the best film you’ve ever made in your life?”

      While the FBI and the mainstream media insist there is no evidence Antifa or BLM played any role in the deadly mob that stormed the Capitol last Wednesday, Sullivan admits in the footage that he strategically wore a Trump hat and carried a “big ass camera” at the rally to guise himself as a journalist and mislead law enforcement and the media about his true motives.

      Now there is more on the two radicals who stormed the US Capitol together during the riots.

      BREAKING: CNN’s Jade Sacker penetrating the Capitol with a member of BLM/Antifa cheering, “We did it!” And then asking her conspirator if he was filming, he said he’d delete it, he lied. CNN was in on it.

    Systematic Racism Is Real and Democrats Are the Ones Engineering It

    Why can’t Republicans be as smart as this caller, J.C., on Rush Limbaugh’s program on Thursday? Want to solve the problem of reaching the black community, Republicans? Then find this man and put him in charge of the whole darn party.

    The reason they don’t accuse Waters of being a racist for preferring illegal border-jumpers over black Americans is that no one ever taught squishy Republicans how to fight. They’re useless. They run crying at the first charge of “racism.” They have no game. They’re pitiful. Take your pick of any number of reasons for it, but Republicans are historically big, fat failures and we’ve all known it for a long time. This is why Donald Trump is so wildly popular with the American conservative voter. This man fights. After years of watching our supposed champions turn tail and run and compromise and quibble, Trump’s “burn it to the ground and salt the ashes” attitude was a welcome and awe-inspiring phenomenon. (Not surprisingly, all the Republican squishes hated him from the beginning. Mittens, fetch me my smelling salts! He’s so uncouth!)

    Republicans are missing the boat by not putting people like J.C. out front and giving them the wheel to turn this boat around. There is so much systemic racism that Democrats have installed in our system, like stopping black families from being able to send their kids to any school they want. Democrats stop school-choice initiatives every chance they get and it keeps black children in drug-infested, failing schools. How is that not systemic racism? Abortion targets black women disproportionately, exterminating black babies. How is that not systemic racism? Democrats continually give more money and power to Child Protective Services that disproportionately targets black families who are poor, often removing their children unlawfully. How is that not systematic racism?

    Remember that the Democrat Party was created from the slave (Southern) states in the 19th Century. The original Democrat symbol was the Confederate Flag. And, 150 years later, leopards do not change their spots. Despite their rhetoric, Democrats are far more racist than Republicans (think of the Kennedys…racists all). The next 4 years will be most interesting, and challenging for African-Americans
