The operative word is morons.
They are going to try something in the Jan 17 to 20 time range; I doubt it will be another assault on the capitol but they will try some stupid stunt.

BTW, I did not rule out who or how many people were involved in this perfect storm of inadequate, under-armed Capitol Police. I merely said stupidity was another possibility.

More and more information is coming in however and until certain things get investigated we can't really say what was involved here.

There are some important observations in this personal account.

And obviously we need to know more about the civilian heads of the Pentagon that Trump only installed after the election he lost.

Something very bad happened here. Don't go ragging on my case just because I haven't bought into some well organized planning. Consider for, example, if it was so well planned, why was it so poorly executed?

And likely massacred in the process, too stupid to know how stupid they are.

Is it the mole machine? Please tell me it's the mole machine.

I've always wanted to see one in action. Yet since at least the 60s, they've only shown up in cartoons. I'm sure there were a lot of technical kinks to work out. But you got it working, right? Come on, let's see it. Right up through the Reflecting Pool at the right dramatic moment would be good. (Plus, that way, you can call it the Kraken and pretend that's what you were talking about all along.) The world owes me mole machines!

Um dude, you really need to turn on the news. The Secret Service just rushed Trump to Walter Reed. He had a stroke, he's in a coma.

And, as you're demonstrating, easiest of all is to do neither.

I'll admit that I don't have an answer for that. But I dont' need one. The facts speak for themselves: people bringing bundles of flex cuffs, caches of explosives and weapons found, cops stepping aside and letting rioters through. NG told initially to stay out of it.

One is meaningless, twice is coincidence, three times suspicious. More than that reeks of planning.

No, you made vague comments that stick to the safe saide of the line while hinting at foreknowledge of more insurrection to come.

“KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — PGA of America votes to move 2022 PGA Championship event away from Trump National Golf Club after Capitol insurrection.”

Trump: a losing loser who loses.

What hasn’t sunk in yet for the Thumbsucker-in-Chief is how little use all the people and companies who have coddled him so far will have for him going forward. His crappy hotels will be ghost towns. Businesses won’t hold events there, won’t donate to his MAGA2024SuperPatriotVictory Fund (99.7% of donations to which will go to paying off Russian mob loans), cities will deny him permits for his grift’n’ego fests, and subpoenas from state prosecutors will rain down.

In a few more months, the Senate will vote to convict him and he’ll be officially unable to fundraise on the flimsy premise of a 2024 run. He’ll have to have his idiot large adult sons do all his social media whining for him, but nobody will care, because even Rupert (spit) Murdoch media will treat him like the embarrassing crazy uncle who kept unzipping at the dinner table.

Even the Q dolts will move on from him to fixate on the next loser as their messiah. That is, those who aren’t in jails, insane asylums, or just managed to grow up.

You know why pigeons fly upside down over Trump properties?

It was not well planned (nothing involving Trump is). Point is that it was planned.

Do not even try to argue "incompetently done plan does not count as plan" again like with coup.

Of course it was "planned": Date, time, place, advertised by Trump, amplified on Net, permit to be in the park...

I'm not going to respond to your straw man taunt.
