  1. So, the House objected, the Senate objected, then protestors broke in.. Capital security used lethal force on them and killed a woman..

    I’m somewhat surprised the House and Senate actually objected. I’m not terribly surprised that people got into Congress.

    I’m absolutely not surprised that the MSM is painting the situation with broad strokes, that the “protestors are a mob and violent”. Yet for nearly identical situations they were painted as “mostly peaceful”.

    A Congress woman, carried a firearm into Congress today, and I’ll bet she was a lot less nervous than the other members…

    I bet they didn’t call therapist.. interesting how they call for the police so quickly..

    I would venture this however right now.

    This was peaceful.

    If Congress doesn’t heed the demands of the people it won’t be.

    The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout ‘SAVE US!’…and I’ll look down and whisper ‘No.

    1. Be careful, that shooting of that woman, may just be theatrics! “They” want Christians to start a civil war. So they can demonize them. Watch out. Trump has set the stage for Christian persecution. If you compare both Biden’s speech and Trump’s today, they are instigating their followers to war!!!! Christians War on their face! AND defend their own when the war comes to them.

      I think Antifa and LGBTQ were at the CAPITAL. TRUE CHRISTIANS ARE NOT GOING TO STORM THE CAPITAL like that!!!. I”M NOT!

      We are not of this world. We are just passing through!

      If we didn’t play their “game” they wouldn’t win. If we threw away our cell phones and refused to be afraid of the Covid they would lose. There are only a few families that are controlling all of the airwaves and the whole narrative. People, please. Why get caught up on politics when both candidates are on the same team? We’ve been duped! PRAY and PREPARE YOUR HEART FOR THE PERSECUTION THAT IS COMING TO CHRISTIANS. Oh God have MERCY on your people!

      1. AL… may I communicate via your email… I was present at the event today … I posted earlier asking prayers from SB community…there is much to share … the media is painting a narrative… TY … you have my personal email

        1. RCB5472TN…have been remembering and lifting you up as this day developed.

          After someone complained to me about the protesters getting out of hand, i said I would not believe the coverage broadcast by ANYONE. We NEED to hear from those who were there…glad to see you post.

      2. Victor Davis Hansen’s commentary on Tucker’s program last night was one to remember ref. President Donald Trump.
        I believe Antifa most likely infiltrated our protesters and created the problems.
        I thought Pence was a very bad choice for VP from the beginning, and that several women were better suited for that job (nothing to do with yesterday’s mess). And Don Jr. needs to take a hike and disappear.
        We have not had a fair shake since way before Donald Trump became President. In my opinion he really helped our country.
        How far into the abyss would we all be right now if “the democratic” had won the 2016 election.
        I pray we have a strong candidate in the future. Maybe the Governor of South Dakota?

        God Bless America and defeat the communism eating us from within.

        Semper Fi

        God Bless America.

  2. Weird, my phone is plugged in, yet continuously losing power….

    Older phone but. I’m worried about communications black out.

    The earlier quoted is from Watchmen.

    In all seriousness. Pray.

  3. So, curiously, my other phone started to quickly lose charge. I plugged it in which didn’t help, turned it off, so I’m paranoid now. Curious time for the phone to decide to quit.

    My other phone is taking a charge from the same charger.

    One is none.
