"You got Joe Biden out there trying to compare what happened to Paul Pelosi to January 6th, cut number 9, please. He woke him up. He wanted to tie him up the assailant ended up using a hammer to smash Paul's skull. Thankfully, by the grace of God, Paul survived. All this happened after the assault, and I saw a hard to even say, it's hard to even say, after the assailant entered the home asking, where's Nancy? Where's Nancy? Those are the very same words used by the mob when they stormed the United States Capitol on January 6th. So here's what's going to happen. The next time anybody comes into Pelosi's office up on Capitol Hill and says, hey, where's Nancy? Boom. They're taking out their taser and dragged out of the building and thrown in jail. Apparently that's a crime. But just because the guy allegedly said where's Nancy doesn't mean he's a right wing extremist.

J6 Committee Votes to Subpoena Donald Trump
"6 panel plans a Trump subpoena. This is what they now have. They have failed at every single turn now in the month of October, halfway through the month of October, where we are just days away from one of the most consequential midterm elections of our lifetime, their way of now having their big October surprise is to subpoena Donald Trump for what exactly. Play cut 96, please. I am offering this resolution. That the committee direct the chairman to issue a subpoena for relevant documents and testimony under oath from Donald John Trump. In connection with the January 6th attack on the United States Capitol. That's Liz Cheney making the announcement that now the January 6th committee is going to use their resources their taxpayer funded resources to go subpoena Donald Trump. In the list of priorities for voters, what do you think? Where do you think January 6th ends up for battleground voters in Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania? They have nothing else. They can't run on a record. They can't run on governing. They can't run on anything. It is a total collapse of the Democrat party. And instead of trying to moderate their views, instead of trying to find some sort of messaging adjustment, it's, hey, let's go after the head of the snake. And I believe this is only going to boost Democrat turnout. I'd love
Stephanie Miller's Happy Hour Podcast
Glenn Kirschner: Trump's Actions on Jan 6th Are Unforgivable
"Steph, this was not negligence. This was not incompetence. This was an orchestration by Donald Trump. This came from the top down. He wanted to set the capital up to be taken. He wanted to set the people in the capitol up to be hurt, including Mike Pence. He made no secret about that. Maybe Mike Pence should be hanged. So what he did Steph and I've been saying this since not long after January 6th, he deprived the United States Capitol of the law enforcement resources it needed to defend against an attack. He launched. Think about it. There were only two law enforcement agencies there that day. The capitol police, which is the only federal law enforcement agency under the control of Congress rather than of the executive branch and the Metropolitan Police department, my partners in local crime fighting the city cops, right? Who was absent Marshall service, ATF, DEA, largely FBI, park police. The bureau of prisons, prisons, riot squad. Why do I cite that organization? They were deployed to BLM. They were the federal government knows how to deploy massive law enforcement resources and Donald Trump refused to do it because he wanted the capital to be taken. That's going to be part of this conspiracy, and that is unforgivable.

And Nancy Pelosi controls the federal capital police and therefore they report it to her and why they did not want it I would leave it to the political experts I'm a national security guide but they seem to be worried about the optics just like they were worried about the optics of Lafayette square though there was the hypocrisy of their way And they also could have put up a no crime fence around the capitol They failed to do that And they failed that federal law enforcement there surrounding the capital such as the FBI and DHS They failed to do a great many things that would have been very simple to do

"united states capitol" Discussed on The Experiment
"I can't help but see that. You had a situation where the National Guard was readily deployed. You guys were put into place during protests where quite frankly it was about black people and police killing black. Those were the concerns, and then you had this situation on January 6th where it was almost 100% white people. And there was a hesitancy to call you all. Did you make that connection? Have you thought about that connection? Well, I'm African American. I'm a black person. George Floyd could have been my brother. My son, my uncle. My father, George Floyd. Could be me. You know, so it wasn't lost on me. Yeah. And not just George Floyd. Sandra bland and so many others. It's not lost on me. So it's inescapable to see the difference in the response. In the summer, and the response on January 6th. Yeah. And that was that also in your mind on January 6th. You can not not be able to be on your mind. It could not be on my mind. And I'll tell you something, ma'am. It was undermined of everybody. Not just black. Airmen and black soldiers. It was on every guardsman. The difference was undeniable. What do you think that people don't understand about January 6? Well, I think they understand. Yeah. So I think it's just willful, blindness. It's willful, they're deceiving themselves. Anybody who says that there was not a riot here. Anybody who could watch the video of what occurred here and walk away from that saying that it was not what it was. Then the self deceived. Yeah. I mean, I was here. They're either being deceived or they're deceiving themselves, or maybe both. Yeah. I guess I'm not convinced that it's so innocent as just denial. I think it's lying. And I don't disagree with you. But denial, sometimes there's a reflex. You know, it's something to this can't be happening. I can't be here. This couldn't have occurred. That type of denial. Which I cause self deception. You're somebody who's very methodical, you believe in the chain of command, you believe in these rules, and that was a day when the rules weren't working. Well, the rules work because as bad as I wanted to show up here with every available guardsman, I didn't. And I was like, really wanted to come. I came very close to just doing something I had, which would just be so outrageous to me. And that was to come anyway. And I had my army lawyer. My command sergeant major and others said sir, there's no way you can just tell us to go. Now, we will go if you tell us. But you just can't do that. Yeah. So, so, yeah, so the rules do work. As bad as I wanted to come, I didn't. I guess the rule I'm thinking of is you need to be backed up. It shouldn't have taken three hours for this person to call this person to get a sheet of paper that said that you can go I feel like that there was definitely a let down there. Yeah. So I felt let down. But more than that, I feel like the United States Capitol police, the Metropolitan Police, and everybody that was out here felt that now. It.

'Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right': Chris Christie Discusses the Capitol Riots and BLM Protests
"There. We got to talk about, you know, the debate about January 6th in our world. You got people. I mean, I think the common sense reaction to January 6th is that it was a horrible, terrible, unforgivable kind of event, but it was not Pearl Harbor meets 9 11 meets Armageddon. It was not something that should be weaponized politically, there are a whole lot of people who think that January 6th coverage is sort of backfiring on a common sense perspective that says, wait a minute. What about all of the buildings that were burned to the ground and the rioting and the police precincts? Torched and the federal courthouse put on fire. To many my listeners governor, January 6th was terrible, but it sort of paled in comparison to the George Floyd riots. Is that fair? Well, look, I think what's fair is what my mother taught me. Two wrongs don't make a right. And the fact is that what happened over the summer and the violence that happened all across the country in the summer after the George Floyd murder was completely unacceptable conduct and it was rationalized and justified and in many ways supported by large elements of the Democratic Party. And that's absolutely unacceptable. And we should as a country be ashamed that that stuff was going on. By the same token, what happened on January 6th in an attempt to interfere with or intimidate elected officials from doing their constitutional duty as to do that at the cost of the kind of vandalism and damage that happened at the United States Capitol is also wrong. And I think that people who are trying to make January 6th more than that are doing it for purely political reasons. And so we need to save this is wrong. Those who encouraged it and didn't stand in front of stopping it, were wrong. But by the way, the Democratic Party as well has a great deal to answer for regarding the violence that happened in the summer, George Floyd made this country more divided, made this country more angry and made violence normalized. And that is an awful awful sin to have committed as a public official in this

Rep. Banks Says Pelosi Must Answer Questions About Capitol Security
"Nancy pelosi has broken a few norms by kicking you off the kangaroo commission for the ridiculous january sixth thing what are you guys going to do exactly the kind of vengeance. It's necessary to deter this kind of norm destruction in the future. Well that's a great question for first and foremost where we're going to have a press conference here about a half an hour. The group that she or that that kevin mccarthy rather appointed to serve on the committee that she rejected as you said this has never happened before completely unprecedented in congressional history for the leader of one party to reject the appointments to a select committee from the other parties. So i suppose. I'll be an asterik in history when it comes to that but as far as the as far as the topic at hand the reason that nancy pelosi targeted a rejected me and jim jordan because we were beginning to ask the questions this she did not want this committee to head toward answering. What questions on am i talking about. Specifically about why. The united states capitol was vulnerable on january. Six to begin with when there was intelligence report three weeks before january six that told the told the capitol police that something was going to happen that day. Why why did the leadership of the capitol. Police failed to act on that intelligence. And and why didn't they do anything about it. But by the way when you look at the leadership structure of the united states capitol and the oversight of the of the united states capitol police. The speaker of the house says more authority than anybody. So all of this happened on nancy. Pelosi's watch and and those are the questions. Jim jordan and i started asking about about those vulnerabilities why nothing was done about it and those are questions. That clearly doesn't want to doesn't want to answer.

They literally had no place to go on. Go another one of my colleagues, Reuben Diego, who was right there at the time. You know, he said. My office is just one floor up. But by that point it was nearby On by that point, we were, um, uh, away from the capital, where the threat wasn't so He gave them his office for them to secure themselves in his office. So, um, you know my gratitude for him for responding in that manner as well. But it was pretty astounding that these people had just been no huddling on the ground with the rest of us.

What is pandemonium sound like what's the most kind of productive way to respond to it? You know, I never had any similar experiences on the job at CIA, but certainly the training prepares you for it. But I will say Michael, One of the unbelievable things is that you know, even though earlier in my career when I wasn't CIA, we prepared for these sorts of things right? We land ran through the scenario. What happens when there's an attack on the building you're in when they come looking For high ranking U. S officials like how you respond to that. What do you do?

We're lucky to get you to seven o'clock every day. 13 30 in the morning. My name is Nigel that states and hammer even old Lady Pelosi didn't get home until five o'clock this morning, she said As soon as I got home at five o'clock this morning, I prayed for President Trump.

I'm not glad that Joe Biden In Kamala Harris are you know in office? I'm not glad they're in power. But I am glad the lawmakers and the people in power did not let the mob beat them last night, right? They got together. It was late, and a lot of people who said they were going to object to the certification got cold feet, and Mike Brown of Indiana was one of them. Which is interesting, because if you want to say, you know, I think this election was squirrely. I think that we need to talk about verifying some of these ballots. But then you change your mind That tells me you're just doing it for show. If you really are passionate about trying to get changes, an election laws, some morons that broke into your building shouldn't change your mind on that, should they? No, No, not at all in my backed. Oh, vice President Pence for for just a second. I read. I was reading an interesting article about the senator from Oklahoma in half and what he said He kind of let it leak out that he'd been in contact with Mike Pence and said that he was fuming. Yesterday. Quote. I had a long conversation with him, he said. Quote after all the things I've done for him, referring Donald Trump spokesperson from Pence didn't get back with them. But, you know, I think it's funny. That old good old vice president Pence is under the assumption that Trump gives a flying flip about about what he has done for him. He cares about what you're doing for me now. What have you done for me lately? Right? And I don't know. Mike Pence with his wife and his daughter. Yesterday. I mean, they literally that could have been killed yesterday. You really think about what went down yesterday? Hammer? They some powerful politicians could have lost their lives, right? I mean, that was a complete breach of security. Yes. Uh, And by the way, I'm not criticizing Capitol police. You're brave. They did what they had to do They they stood their ground and tried not to let the mob through. But they just got overwhelmed. They weren't prepared. But how are you not prepared, though, when you've got a meeting of the most powerful people in the world, doing their most important task, picking the next leader of the free world, and you knew that there was going to be a protest A spirited protest. How are you not prepared? I mean, that's the safest place in the world. You would think next to the Oval Office with White House, the United States Capitol. I don't. They just they were prepared. They were overwhelmed. And, um, I think we're gonna learn all that there's gonna be some investigations into exactly what happened with the Capitol police and why there was a shortage. What do you think? President G or Vladimir Putin or hell? Even fat boy were thinking when they saw just a bunch of hillbillies storming Nancy Pelosi's office. They were probably like in a three way call going, bro. You watching there if that easy What the hell of we've been waiting for, like, you know, we're laughing about it, but that's really concerning.

"M W Welcome back with Lars Larson. Joe. It's a pleasure to be with you. In Washington, D C. There are crowds of people conducting a rally and the protest of sorts. They have crowded onto the steps of the United States Capitol and a couple of Windows have been broken and members of that protest have actually gone inside the building. And we're told that some of the security guards inside probably a number of different agencies because you know they're about four different levels of security within the state, the federal capital building, But we're being told That guns have been drawn not by the protesters, but only by security. I thought we talked with Randy Pebble who is with shift W A shift What ship wa dot org, which is a great sight for alternative information outside of the daily Dead fish wrapper in the mainstream media. Randy, Welcome back to the program. How are you today? Thank you for having me on ours. I'm doing well. So what happened last night in Georgia? Because as we watch the capital, and I'll let my audience no, we're gonna keep an eye on What's going on in Washington. D C is this as this continues today? What happened last night in Georgia. It appears very simple Math equation, Unfortunately large and that is that over a quarter million voters who voted for Senator Purdue, the Georgia incumbents Just two months ago in November. Did not turn out yesterday. They did not cast about yesterday, whereas the Democrats his opponent, John Awesome. Only 160,000. The Democrats didn't show back up. So ultimately that 100,000 more Republican voters deciding it wasn't worth voting yesterday. Decided that race because right now it's about 18,000 votes. Yeah. And the only reason I do this Randy is I tell my audience I'm gonna be intellectually honest with you. I could be tempted to say this was cheating. I could be tempted because I think there was cheating in Georgia on November 3rd. But I also think that the Democrats knew that the whole world of the whole country at least, was going to be watching What happened in Georgia yesterday. So there may have been some cheating, but they knew that they were very much under the microscope. And when I heard the numbers that you had put together, saying we had a certain number of voters turn out for Purdue in November, And then we had a much smaller quarter million smaller net 100,000 smaller than the reduction that the Democrats, so I thought, Well, that's all it takes. To make a dramatic difference. So if those 100,000 had shown up then Purdue if you did them out that way, would have won by 80,000 votes, right? Absolutely and what it shows is it was the ground game and what we're hearing. It was the difference in tactics by the Democrats, whereas up until November, 3rd Democrat activists were not going door to door. They were relying on text messages and phone calls. To get their message out and to get voters out because they were afraid to go door to door. Republicans were going door to door. And they changed their tactics and they would literally dragging people out to the polls, and it shows because turnout to this special election And first week in January, 2 weeks after the general turnout for that special election is approaching 90% of what the turnout was when the president was on the ballot just two months ago, and that shows the nature of the effort going into turn out. And each side had over $100 million mortar spend After the general election on this special election than they had before. You're going to end up spending over a half a billion dollars just on these races and Georgia this election. You mean end It was ready. I should tell people If they haven't gone to shift walk dot org. You're a conservative, right? Absolutely. I'm a conservative as well. But but one of the ways one of the ways we make sure that we win in elections is not just making sure the election is valid but also remembering that some of it is just plain old campaigning, and I saw some of the numbers. I don't know if you saw these, but they said that where the Purdue and Leffler put 1000 people on the ground. Go out and go door to door and to engage in other activities to encourage people to vote. The other side put 2000 on the ground. You've got a war in which you've got 1000 soldiers on one side in 2000. On the other side, it's going to make a difference, and the second thing was they were, they were still making a lot of phone calls they, apparently in the last few days before Tuesday's election. They literally made millions of phone calls. You know, they would get lists of people who hadn't voted yet who are marked, As you know, their ballot hadn't been voted early voting or whatever, and they would get on the phone and encourage them to come down in. And so when you when you make that kind of effort, and the other side doesn't there's gonna be a long right. Absolutely enlarged. Even more than that. It wasn't just the phone calls wasn't just the door to door. They also were getting post comes handwritten postcards from people around the country. If you were a Democrat voters who had cast your ballot By yesterday. You were getting postcards. But people around the country saying do the country a favor. You have to go, but I mean that type of activity. It's really hyper grassroots activity, and that's how you win elections and, frankly, that's what the Republicans are gonna have to do in two years. Because Raphael Warnock pastor Warnock is going to be on the ballot in just two years. It is a special election to one and Republicans in Georgia going to have to retool their grassroots efforts to win that race. I would project now that will be the most expensive Senate race in U. S history. I'm talking to Randy Pebble from shift wad and shift w A like Washington state dot org. Randy, Let me ask you what you make of what's going on in Washington, D C today with this massive rally, the president's speech and then the effective occupation of the Capitol building. At my own perspective is that there is no excuse ever. Uh, for type of protests Were you start ignoring the instructions of law enforcement and people entering a public building. It's just as bad as Just last summer when we saw protesters allowed it to Seattle City Hall to take over that building that is crossing one, and that's the disrespect the law enforcement that I don't think we see. Out of true conservatives on I understand that tensions are high, and this is immensely immensely important issue. But that doesn't mean you take belong to your own hands. And I think that's what we're seeing their unfortunate see. I'm gonna stick to my usual line and that is that I don't have a problem with civil disobedience as long as you are willing to take the consequences, So if you want to occupy a building, it's not my style. But if if somebody wants do it great, they can go ahead and do it as long as they may end up spending a Couple of hours in booking, or they may actually get cited or whatever. But as long as you're willing to take that, let me ask you about Ted Cruz proposal because he's saying Look in American history, 150 years or so years ago, the Congress did say We're going to investigate an election and make sure that the election was valid. That's a reasonable proposal, isn't it? He has a reasonable proposal. If you have the evidence behind it to show that the that the election is truly in question, and that's the evidence that is lacking. So far, there's a lot of anecdotal points and large, you pointed out correctly. The dead people vote in this election. People vote in every election did people who are not registered in the particular precinct vote in that precinct anyway, that happens Every election, but it happens on a minuscule scale one right to person sitting there and so do you have the evidence to present as was done after the 18. Uh, six election. Um Do you have the evidence to show that there was massive Prasit impacted the outcome and today We have not seen that. Well, see, I'm gonna have to respectfully disagree with you on that because Randy, if you say an investigation is needed by definition, you don't have the evidence because that's what investigations air designed to gather. But do we have probable cause to believe that there were at least 12,000 illicit votes in the state of Georgia, which was the difference between Biden and Trump in Georgia? I think there were I think they did..

"All of a sudden it started to happen. But more than just swear words. The president made a demand today that election law reform come to make sure that those abuses we saw on the night of November 3rd and heard evidence of for more than the last two months. With long changes to make American elections happen in a legal way. Take a listen to that Come, and then I'll tell you what's going on on Capitol Hill. At this moment, we will stop the practice of universal unsolicited mail in balloting. We will clean up the voter rolls that ensure that every single person who cast a vote is a citizen of our country, a resident of the state in which they vote and their vote is cast in a lawful and honest manner. We will restore the vital civic tradition. In person voting on Election Day. So that voters could be fully informed when they make their choice. There are tens of thousands, if not more than 100,000 people who've gathered on the Capitol mall. The exact count is going to be a matter of dispute. But what's happening right now A massive American flag has been deployed dozens of feet in every dimension. It hangs from one of the walls in front of the United States Capitol as thousands and thousands of protesters Forced their way inside the United States Capitol building. But unlike a lot of the violence and the riots that all the mainstream media and the well, the politically correct crowd thought was so nice that they called it mostly peaceful. This really is mostly peaceful. You see crowds of Americans who are angry, they have crowded onto the steps of the House of Representatives onto the steps of the Senate. And inside the building. Well, politicians are in a panic at this point, because what they had planned for today was to simply put a rubber stamp on the electoral college vote. Say Now, there may have been fraud. But we're just gonna move on to the next election that Americans have to accept the ideas that the president just spoke about the idea that you can have open election fraud, illegal aliens voting non residents of states voting dead people voting people voting twice, or three times thousands million. The ballots sent out to people who never even requested them. And people who did want to vote told I'm sorry somebody has already voted. Your mark down is having voted. You can't have a ballot that actually happened in Georgia. And last night in Georgia, we saw the two Senate elections that were so critical. Both go to Democrats, but by very, very small margins. Although a bit bigger than what Joe Biden claimed he got in Georgia Once again, we're gonna have to check and find out whether or not there was cheating. But in the United States and the joint session, I should say in the joint session today, they had planned to simply count of the electoral college votes. Call it good and move along. Take a listen to that electoral vote as it began. Mr President..

Secretary of the Army will make comments on We will take brief questions. An update from the mayor of Washington now the police chief. All right, Eh? So you been listening to ABC news here on K C. A. R. M. J Does. He's Chad gave us and Chad show We've been monitoring everything from Washington, D. C. The mayhem the destruction. The looting of the capital. Yeah, that's what they were talking about Looting and and and as people are interacting with me on the interwebs and stuff. What B l am in the protesters did and how they burned and and, you know, they set up the chopping Seattle. He did things like that. All of that was wrong. And this is wrong. And these air, not antifa super plants, super actors. He's not any of those things. This is absolutely wrong. And you've got a president who continues to wink wink, nudge, nudge this And at some point in time you've got to say even and I'm getting a lot of people saying Look, I support the president. But at this point, I'm over it absolutely totally understand, and I think a lot of people are right now. This is not what we're all about. That should not be anything that we're all about. And if you think that that invading the people's house, essentially and going and tearing apart stuff, and looting is cool. No. Well, they're stepping on the Constitution you many times. Politicians step on the constitution on a daily basis. They have expanded their their power for years. Upon years upon years, we can't pick and choose this game, but that's what they're doing. I mean, I've never wanted this president removed from office. Russia was Bs. I said it from the beginning has spent almost no time talking about it Any think there was anything there? Some of the things he's done Some of the things he said Sure, he's definitely gone too far. But the impeachment I thought was silly. But I got to tell you I know he only has a couple weeks. But that 25th amendment looks pretty good to me. It's Ah, I've never said that before. But after today, you just wonder what else he can do. What do we do in two weeks from today, right? I just think he's become the most dangerous man in America. As if you didn't hear a speech today it was filled with hate and lies. And the people there ate it up. And then they went. Became domestic terrorists. And direct the capital. Americans stormed their own capital. And it's because of Trump. I'm not a guy who blames Trump for everything. I think that has been a ridiculous thing over the last four years. Certainly he's got a lot to blame. But you know what he could take. Hey, could take a victory lap on a whole bunch of stuff. Absolutely. And by the way, I've said that over many process again, If if, if you I love how people like Well, BLM got to do all this stuff. Stop thinking Hey, two wrong. Things are okay if you're wanted. The whole thought process is if you think you are law and order, that's what you're all about. But then it's okay to allow this to happen. You. You're missing the plot because it's about Trump. It's not about the life. I just I just don't I don't know what we do well in this country anymore with a lot of stuff. Well, I understand that, but it doesn't feel like it. We had this pandemic. We handled it worse than anybody. We're the most powerful country in the world where the richest country in the world we should have the smartest people, right. We should doesn't seem like we know what we're doing on any aspect of anything. I I know that we do things right. But over the last year, it's like We're gonna ignore a pandemic..
