Insurrection Derangement Syndrome… Not An Insurrection


The only death caused by the January 6 demonstration was that of a combat veteran lady, a Trump supporter. She was unarmed, and, without warning, and without a warning shot, she was shot in the throat, by an armed guard, while she tried to go through a door with a window. Ashli Babbitt, 35, an Air Force veteran, died a slow death on the ground, drenched in flowing blood and bewildered.

Propagandists claim there were 5 deaths in what they call an “insurrection“, but that’s a true lie: the deaths happened among this huge crowd, but they were causally unrelated to the demonstration (an officer who was in the riot died that night of an unrelated natural cause, an autopsy showed)… And this was not an “insurrection” but rather a parody of an insurrection… in other terms, a vast joke. Fortunately most of the Capitol Police understood this. An insurrection requires a plot. The only plot found so far is that the chain of command from Speaker Pelosi decided to not use enough police to defend the US Capitol, an isolated gigantic building on a hill, up impressive stairs, deliberately so (see addendum). 

By way of comparison, rioters were never able to breach the French National Assembly or Senate, although they are much harder to defend inside Paris, and the riots have been much more violent there (one in the 1960s related to the Franco-Algerian civil war, killed more than 100). Why? Because enough police was used. The only time the Assembly and Senate fell was during a real insurrection, the Commune, in 1871. (A famous leader of the Commune, Louise Michel, was sent to New Caledonia later…)

By violent demonstrations standards, January 6 was a nothing burger. I have been in violent demonstrations, they are something else entirely. Flying molotov cocktails, fires, smothering smoke, police charges, beatings, tear gas, concussion grenades… Consider what just happened in Kazakhstan, with dozens dead, and shot to kill orders from the president… Even Kazakhstan is not yet an insurrection… Just very violent demonstrations by a legitimately angry population.

I was also, as a child in a country during an attempted coup (Senegal) and later lived in state-of-siege countries, or dictatorships (Iran, Peru, Bolivia). 

On January 6, 2021, A half naked guy with buffalo horn, carrying the US flag invaded an empty chamber in US Congress, followed by an armed police officer who asked him when he intended to leave (he got 41 months in prison, the most of any rioters). Viewing that as an insurrection, comparing it to Pearl Harbor or The Holocaust (as grandees of the “Democratic” Party just did, January 6, 2022, see below) is Insurrection Derangement Syndrome (ISD)

Gentlemen having an explanation and debate, as should be the case in the house of democracy. Notice that the police officer on the left is fully armed. The so-called “insurgents” in sight are rotting in jail in the last year. A federal judge sentenced Jacob Chansley, the Capitol rioter known as the “QAnon Shaman,” above with the horns, to 41 months in prison on Wednesday –
Prior to his sentencing, Chansley spoke at length about his time in solitary confinement and his respect for Jesus and Gandhi. He was not, he said, a violent criminal or an insurrectionist.
U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth told Chansley he was moved by his statement of contrition, but that he was unable to justify a downward departure from the sentencing guidelines for the obstruction charge Chansley pleaded guilty to.
“I guess the basic problem I have, in considering a departure downward, is that, although you have evolved in your thinking in many ways, what you did here was horrific. Obstructing the government… is so serious that I cannot justify a downward departure,” Lamberth said. “You made yourself the center of the riot.”

Technically, the demonstrators slowed down the “certification” of the election, one of several ridiculous and obsolete mechanisms related to the US presidential election…

“Certain dates echo throughout history,” US Vice President Harris said. “Including dates that instantly remind all who have lived them where they were and what they were doing when our democracy came under assault. Dates that occupy not only a place on our calendar but a place in our collective memory. Dec. 7, 1941, Sept. 11, 2001, and Jan. 6, 2021.

Harris said that the rioters that day sought to attack “the institutions, the values, the ideals that generations of Americans have marched, picketed, and shed blood to establish and defend. On Jan. 6 we all saw what our nation would look like if the forces who seek to dismantle our democracy are successful: the lawlessness, the violence, the chaos…

Biden: “The Bible tells us that we shall know the truth, and the truth shall make us free.  We shall know the truth.

Well, here is the God’s truth about January 6th, 2021:

Close your eyes.  Go back to that day.  What do you see? Rioters rampaging, waving for the first time inside this Capitol a Confederate flag that symbolized the cause to destroy America, to rip us apart.

Even during the Civil War, that never, ever happened.  But it happened here in 2021.

What else do you see?  A mob breaking windows, kicking in doors, breaching the Capitol.  American flags on poles being used as weapons, as spears…..”

An “insurrection” it was not, but a security failure, certainly. And who is responsible? The Congress Speaker’s Office, who is the “top of command” (the US president is not).

Former Capitol Police chief Steven Sund has attested that before Jan. 6 he approached House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving about obtaining the assistance of National Guard troops on the day the electoral votes were to be counted, but Mr. Irving said he was concerned about “optics.” Mr. Sund says that during the violence he again urgently asked for troops, but help was delayed because Mr. Irving said he “needed to run it up the chain of command.” Mr. Irving disputes this version of events. One obvious way to settle it is to examine documents, and the Capitol Police have produced theirs to the House Administration Committee, which has jurisdiction over the Capitol complex.

But the House sergeant-at-arms and chief administrative officer—both of whom report to Mrs. Pelosi—have steadfastly refused to produce anything to HAC. Likewise, the House general counsel has stonewalled requests. The speaker’s office controls Capitol security decisions—as evidenced by Mrs. Pelosi’s decrees on fencing or magnetometers or National Guard troops—and any authetic investigation would start by looking at her office’s briefings and involvement in Jan. 6 security—as the top of that “chain of command.” But the Jan 6 com. of the so-called “Democrats”… does not. Instead it produced hundreds of documents from the White House, showing no connection whatsoever with the Shaman and his horns… or any of his hirsute colleagues…

    January 6 was a protest that spiraled out of control, but with less violence and less destruction than the BLM “peaceful protests” of 2020. Whomever takes office after Pretender Biden should pardon all the January 6 protesters.

    It’s remarkable that we went from the most corrupt and fraudulent election in history in 2016, overseen by Obama’s Justice Department, to the most pristine election ever in 2020, despite the autocrat/Nazi/fascist/literally Hitler Donald Trump managing the vote. Questioning the 2016 election was a patriotic duty; questioning the 2020 election is treason.

    And now January 6 is being used a pretext by the Democrats to seize more power from the demos. It’s the spear’s tip of their five-year assault against democracy and the norms and traditions of the US republic.

    With a hostility to a commitment to real democracy, to transparent and fully auditable elections and to a platform of anti-plutocracy, the Democrats have completed their metamorphosis into a fully fascist party.

    But this is no time to bemoan the Democratic descent into darkness. Action is needed. A counterrevolution needs to be won. Sense-making institutions like the media, the academy and scientific organizations must be restored and expected to act with real independence. A pandemic must be cured. Liberty must be preserved. China must be opposed. And for all of these, the Republican Party needs to be transformed.

      Yes. Indeed. The gigantic Target not far from where I lived was (partially?) burned in an act of arson. A week ago. It will stay closed indefinitely. The arson apparently to hide a theft. This is typical of the breakdown of civil society one can continually observe… BTW, lots of “blacks” and various “colored” were using it. They made a majority of users… Now of course minorities are the majority in California…

        The Democrat elite don’t care and won’t until the destruction breaches their compounds and gated communities. For now, they are and have been encouraging it. Is there precedent of an elite encouraging the sacking of their own cities for political gain? And am I wrong to worry that if the current trajectory holds, the future of CA (and the US?) will look like Brazil? Low-trust, high-violence, deep and wide class and racial divides. Assuming no national divorce or civil war.

          An essay on France?
          Hmmmmm… Nothing much to say: Macron has improved, and will be re-elected, the first French president to be re-elected in a very long time… IFF… Pecresse does not win on the first round.
          The only one who can defeat Macron is Valerie Pecresse… However, she would have to clear the first round. At this point she is starting to lead Le Pen. If she finishes second in the first round, she has a high probability of winning. The anti-Muslim block is roughly 30% (Le Pen + Zenmour). Pecresse and Macron are going to have to compete within it.

          The left is basically ridiculous et very divided… 40 years of “woke” and pseudo-socialism, you know… The way the Dems are going to end up in the USA if the present craziness goes on (I have to pay 40K in family health insurance… while Newsom decided to offer free health care to illegal immigrants). “Ecologists” want to save the planet with anti-growth, return France to the Middle Ages. Grotesque, but they have a following….

          Immigration in the USA right now, meaning in last 50 years, was enormous in the USA… nearly 100 million people. A lot of it was made of highly qualified high education immigrants from all over the world. That class is without much equivalent in Brazil…
          Left to themselves, the Dems would probably turn the US in a sort of high tech Brazil… Brazil itself is becoming high tech, in part from French help:

          In line with the three-year-long agreement, both companies and Eletrobras Eletronuclear, a subsidiary of Eletrobras, will study opportunities to collaborate for the conclusion of the Angra 3 nuclear plant and the development of new nuclear power plants in Brazil.
