Suddenly The Democrats Are Pro-Wall

Watch the Democrats and you’ll see more flip-flops than on all the beaches in Florida (pre-covid). It seems like just yesterday they were telling us that “walls don’t work.”

The Hill:

A review of Capitol security after the Jan. 6 riots is going to recommend adding more fencing around the building, as well as more than 1,000 Capitol Police officers, two sources with direct knowledge of the findings told CNN.

The draft proposal of recommendations comes just over a month after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tapped retired Lt. General Russel Honoré to review security around the Capitol in the wake of a mob of former President Trump’s supporters laying siege to the building in an attempt to prevent the certification of President Biden’s Electoral College victory.

At the time, Pelosi said Honoré’s review was to focus on “security infrastructure, interagency processes and procedures, and command and control.”

1000 additional Capitol Cops? When I was living in San Jose in the mid-80’s I recall that the city of St. Joe had 972 sworn police officers. That was about the time that SJ passed SF in population.

That was what I thought of when I read “1000 additional officers.” Then I got to this part:

The additional 1,000 personnel, which could cost nearly $100 million, would include roughly 350 officers and expanded staffing in regional offices for when lawmakers are at home, one of the sources told CNN.

If they are guarding all Congressional offices in all 57 states then 1000 doesn’t sound quite so outrageous. But do we need a national security force just for Congress? I’ll point out that it was a couple plainclothes Capitol cops who stopped the attack that nearly killed Steve Scalise.

The network reported that the recommendations also include establishing a quick reaction force composed of a National Guard military police battalion that’s on standby in Washington full-time.

And the report advises long-term security changes to perimeter security, including building an integrated system of walls and fences around the complex.

The Hill has reached out to Pelosi’s office and the Capitol Police for comment.

Capitol Police officials have reportedly called for the current 7-foot-tall security fence that was erected after the Jan. 6 insurrection to be in place until September. This came after acting U.S. Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman recommended the fencing be left in place permanently, which garnered bipartisan backlash.

Pittman told lawmakers on Thursday that the security measures were “not popular,” but said that they will have to remain while Congress faces security threats.

The report recommends a wall because Nancy Pelosi wants a wall around her fiefdom. (You can call it a wall or a fence but that’s samey-same. Nomenclature is macht nichts.) If Nancy didn’t want that wall it would not be there. General Honoré is Pelosi’s puppet.

Nancy’s political acumen seems to have eroded from TDS and syphilitic insanity. Fencing off the Capitol Building is a bad idea. We used to take pride in the fact that our nation’s capitol didn’t look like a military fortress.

Visitors from other countries have often been amazed at how wide open Washington DC has historically been. Certainly the British found it easy enough to march right in and burn down the White House and set fire to the Capitol in 1814. But we didn’t build a wall around the Capitol when we rebuilt it.

The first fence around the White House was built during Jefferson’s administration, but it was put up to keep livestock and wild animals from wandering onto the grounds. It’s been about 120 years since you could walk right up to the White House.

But the Capitol Building is “The People’s House.” Except for a few brief periods, the Capitol Building has always been accessible to the public. The Capitol was targeted in the 9/11 attacks (Foiled when Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania) but afterward we didn’t build a wall around it.

Don’t get me wrong – I think we should build a wall around all of Washington DC. Then we should close the gates, lock them, and throw away the keys. Ever seen “Escape From New York?” That’s what I’m talking about.

The Capitol Building is an important historical artifact. It has a rich history and contains a lot of American art. But do you know what the Constitution says about the Capitol? Nada planada. The building was started in 1800 and the British only burned part of it. The original version did not have electricity, let alone telephone and wi-fi. The place is too small for the current size of Congress, and it is infested with roaches and politicians.

We should turn all of Washington DC into a historical monument and build a new state-of-the-art capital in a central location like Kansas. The deep state bureaus and agencies should be broken down into regional offices and spread around the country.

If a small army of white supremacists (good luck finding that many) took possession of the Capitol Bldg (#OccupyCapitolHill) and declared themselves to be the new US Congress they would have no more actual power or legal standing than the autonomous “CHOP” zone had in Seattle last summer.

If a terrorist group detonated a nuclear weapon that leveled Washington DC and left it uninhabitable but the POTUS and most of Congress escaped/survived, we could absorb the blow and move on, just as we did after 9/11.

Donald Trump was not the president because he lived in the White House, he lived in the White House because he was the president. Take away Nancy Pelosi’s gavel and she is still the Speaker of the House. When we say that someone “holds office” we are not talking about possessing a piece of real estate.

As far as the National Guard units currently wandering around our nation’s capital, how many of them have been issued ammunition for their rifles? They are going to be there until next fall, and ever since Kent State we have been leery of armed troops facing Leftist protestors.

One last thing: Too many people on the right accept the Left’s framing of the mostly peaceful 1/6/21 Capitol Open House.

“. . . in the wake of a mob of former President Trump’s supporters laying siege to the building in an attempt to prevent the certification of President Biden’s Electoral College victory.”

How many untrue statements can you pack in a single sentence? I’ll just point out one that is central to the Insurrection Lie: Trump supporters were not trying to prevent anything. They were hoping to persuade Congress to reject the votes of the electors from certain states where there were unexplained shenanigans on election night. The Capitol was breached while Trump was still on stage a couple miles away. We don’t know how many Trump supporters were involved with the initial breach, but we know for sure that some of the people involved were not Trump supporters.

    after the speech by president trump, I changed the channel and listened to 50 years of music on PBS. Mostly protest songs of the 60s. brought back a lot of memories.
    this might not make a lot of sense but while I listened, I thought about what is going on today in this country and many of the songs seemed relevant,how weird is that?
    In the 60s they were anti-war songs by the left. Today they seemed like they could be anti-socialst songs by the right. Guess the song Turn, Turn, Turn is right

        No bias in the article, eh? It’s all shit.

        • Constance says:

          Yes! Total BS. The FBI is probably who hacked it as intimidation. The hacker spokesperson is really self-righteous. Supposedly this was all done for the public good to see how “misinformation” and hate and racism spread online. Except the misinformation is nothing but views these assholes don’t agree with and there isn’t any racism or hate. I block about 1 or 2 anti Jewish rants a week but those are probably Fed posters trying to develop a following to “prove” there is hate on these sites.

          • taw46 says:

            Just another way to intimidate conservatives, trying to make them afraid to speak out anywhere. I agree with you, it was probably the FBI, lol.

    • Constance says:

      Who cares if there is a hack. I worked for the Feds when they were hacked. Since then I have had accounts with companies that were hacked. I think some of them hack themselves and then try to sell you insurance for being hacked. So far nothing has happened. Closer to home my ex tried to steal all the money in the brokerage account that my parents left me right before our divorce was final. that left to all my accounts being frozen for months on end but he didn’t get a dime. He also didn’t get any punishment. Nothing is fool proof. You do the best you can to keep safe from the bad guys but I’m not going to stop living.

      • lyn5 says:

    That acyrologia paragraph is great! I especially love “post-dramatic stress disorder” I know a few people who probably have that. Also the sentence “suffer a complete mental break down leaving them curled up in the feeble position” is pretty funny.
    I absolutely agree, Fence off DC, call it a historic site and move the capitol to the mid-west. I like breaking up all the agencies too. And this time we need to buy a huge piece of property so there can be no K street near to the congress. I realize Washington state isn’t central but we have some nice property in eastern WA that is really remote. They actually have signs up on the road that say “no services for the next 100 miles”. That would be a nice US capitol. It’s kind of by Hanford Nuclear Site.

    I segue between sadness and anger since the selection.
    I was proud to be an American. I thought my vote meant something. It’s a lie.
    Imagine though being a vet who lost a limb for this country. Or a parent who lost a child for oil wars.

      It kind of seems like the MSM did the same thing. Pretend there was no speech by Trump. Didn’t Ben Rhodes brag about how well they had the MSM trained during the Obama administration? Looks like now no training is needed, all in the MSM publish the same crap. Since there is no difference in perspective why even have different MSM sources? Seems like all but one should be forced out of business just for consistency sake.

    I wonder when it was we last had a real president before Trump? Reagan? Seems to me they distract us with little things like abortion, borders, and tranny sports. Switch from D to R every few years, but the deep state chugs right along with its agenda uninterrupted.

    • Constance says:

      I know. I think it would be a great move to leave the Deep State government fenced in, in DC. Set up the new and real government in the middle of the country and see which side the military takes. Because we are headed for a blood bath one way or the other. If we do nothing they will do a socialist style mass killing of us but of course it will never have happened because the tech companies and MSM will ignore it. I think we don’t have any choice but to fight. “they” are making that clear. It’s “on your feet or on your knees” time.

      Good! Glad they caught him. I’m baffled by the Democrat/Union move to close public schools. They are truly harming the most vulnerable children and losing their focus of indoctrination at the same time. Before the shut down many public schools were so bad people were looking for alternatives and it won’t take much to replace public schools with something more relevant and effective. It is a dead end situation to take a hard stand on. Very self defeating.

    Just stopping by before I look for a birthday gift for Calamity. Her 7th birthday is Wednesday.
    I have No. Idea. Of an appropriate gift for her. None. I am completely baffled.

    I wanted to let you all know that if you have tubi – a streaming service (I think it’s free) you can watch the Clarence Thomas documentary. It is called “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in his own Words”. You can stream it online or on tv. Roku has the Tubi app and it is free there.
    I watched it last fall and some of the scenes have given me much to think about. They have even entered into my dreams. I know Amazon has eliminated the video and will not allow other services to stream it on their “platform”. It reeks of a conspiracy between Amazon and PBS and YouTube and other online services.
    Gotta go. Still at a loss when it comes to birthday gift for a little girl who not only has everything, but who is not interested in much of what she he does have.

    • Somebody says:

      At 7 she’s old enough for a lot of the craft or science kits. Anything from stamp kits to a pottery wheel. Science kits can be fun like making bath bombs or more complicated like building a robot or simple chemistry sets.

      There are so many wonderful and educational games out there. Does she have magnetic blocks? Those are fun. How about dolls? Baby or Barbie or you could get her a styling head so she can practice styling hair. How about her very first diary? Time is tight, but some Walgreens and Walmarts offer this service and in Chicago surely there is someone. Take a baby picture or other cute picture of her and turn it into a puzzle for her. Is she interested in cooking? Buy her a kids cookbook and a few accessories and tell her the two of you will cook your way through the book.

      • Somebody says:

        Is there a book series she’s shown interest in?

        • lateblum says:

          Thanks, Somebody. Calamity likes messy. Anything messy. Oddly enough, she either has her own or she and sister share EVERYTHING you mentioned. Including the styling head!
          I wasn’t kidding about she’s a tough kid to shop for. And now, since the school shutdown, she is glued to a screen ALL the time. I am so frustrated. I got the girls an “at-home” science and engineering project book for kids. I thought the entire family would like it. Instead, they looked at me as if I had 3 heads when they opened the gift.
          I love the idea of the puzzle and I think I’ll go over to Office Depot and see what they can do. They’ve helped with other “projects” in the past. Maybe they can come through today.
          I also will look into the book Denise mentioned..

          Leslie my grandkids love scratch art, all 3 of them like it. They also like those invisible ink or magic pen whatever you call them art books. Both are available at Target or on Amazon. At my target they are near the office supplies. There is an aisle with craft kits and art stuff.

          Scratch art is black paper that you scratch off with a wood stick to reveal colors. Some have patterns some are free style. The others thing is a little spiral book that has a pen it come with. The pen is like magic looks blank but creates color where it is used. On that same aisle Crayola has some neat things in a range of prices.

          How about those LOL surprise boxes? The kids love those or some other brand of surprise or mystery gift. Again, those are available on Amazon or at Target

          • Somebody says:

            You can put together a hodge podge of small things. Bath bombs, girls that age love bath bombs. Flavored lip balm, a couple of cute headbands or hairbows. A book, a small art something or other, a small surprise gift (just so you know they are generally not too small on price🙄) The puzzle if you can swing it. A small game like a card game, Target has a section with card and travel games.

            Any combination of the above, use the surprise gift as the bow or the hair bow or her favorite candy

          • Somebody says:

            Last idea…..if all of the above is a bust, go with a gift card and one small item. Have one small something or other for her to open, but give the bulk of her gift in a gift card and let her go on Amazon and pick out something she really wants or give her cash and a piggy bank, maybe even a piggy bank she can paint herself. They sell those at Target

        • elliesmom says:

          I’ve been having Crash make a wishlist for me. We use Amazon’s app because we both can see it. Then I pick something off of it or at least get an idea of what she’s interested in at the moment. A few years ago I was surprised to see a cash register for a much smaller child on it. When I asked her about it, she reminded me how much she likes to play “shoe store” or “cafe” at my house, but she had no way to get paid. So I went looking for one more suitable for an older kid. It has a built in calculator, math games, takes “credit cards and coupons”, and even has a scale for weighing produce. I’m not suggesting a cash register for Calamity. Just that sometimes asking gets you surprising results. Crash is still playing with the cash register, and she still packs it up and brings it along to my house. When I bought it, I never thought it would still be a favorite toy 3 years later. She’s also really good at making change. 😉

        That is exactly what I decided to do! I checked with her mother who said it was a “great” idea! We have 2 nice shopping malls that have been “mostly open” since summer. She can pick the mall and the stores and we will spend the day together. In fact, if she so chooses, she can take the entire day of her birthday off school. Btw, I completely disagree with that. They’ve been out of school since a year ago this month and have only returned to in-person learning 2wks ago. So I guess I’m a bad gramma.

    • lateblum says:

      Thank you everyone! Thre were so many great ideas. Sadly – or luckily for the grand girlies – these girls either already have what you suggested, or someone has beaten me to it. BUT, we will have a nice celebration together.

    Satanic temple in Texas files lawsuit demanding “religious right” to sacrifice babies through abortion

    The leaders in charge of the Satanic Temple in Texas are suing the Lone Star State for not allowing them to perform abortions on demand, which they claim is their “religious right.”

    Texas’ informed consent laws, these Satanists claim, are a violation of religious freedom because part of worshipping Satan means aborting human babies as a sacrament, similar to how Christians take communion or get baptized.

      “”Nothing in the history and current practice of mathematics justifies the notion that it is in any way different or dependent on the particular race or ethnic group engaged in it,”
      ****
      I accidentally went down that rabbit hole a few months ago while looking up a specific Nobel Prize in Physics. The search results quickly went to rabid “progressive” anti-Semitism; Whites and especially Jews are awarded Nobel Prizes and Math prizes to the exclusion of Blacks. IIRC ~25% of Nobels have been awarded to Jews and ~30% of Math awards. This really pisses off the “new Left” who demand equity in awarding Nobel Prizes. Sergiu Klainerman is a Romanian Jew and I’m sure is feeling the “Jew hate” from the woke at Princeton.

      • elliesmom says:

        I don’t know if it’s genetic or not, but professions tend to run in families and communities. How many black physicists and mathematicians working at a Nobel Prize level are there? That’s not to imply blacks aren’t capable of doing it, Just that you need a large pool of people interested in a subject to improve the odds of finding the brilliant one. I know the school I went to would have hired pretty much any black science, math, or engineering person who applied. At the same time they were recruiting women. In the past 50 years there have been many women added to the engineering faculty, but the only black professors have been in the humanities.
