    From a news article: The FBI is requesting the public's help in identifying other Trump supporters who unlawfully invaded the Capitol for about four hours, with investigators poring over surveillance footage and social media posts. But the vast majority of the hundreds of people who stormed the building were allowed to leave without getting arrested, making the task of tracking them down exceedingly difficult.

    From Same article: Also charged Friday in connection with the rioting at the Capitol was a state lawmaker from West Virginia, Republican Del. Derrick Evans, who had recordedand then deleted a video of himself joining the throng. A petition has been started for him to step down.



    From me: I guess it's different from when mayors marched with BLM/Anqueefa.

    From another article:
    According to Ghosh, the machine learning algorithms that serve up the content users see on social media platforms to bring in advertising dollars have gone out of control, and need to be reined in.

    “To get it back under control, we need to put not the commercial interests of companies like Facebook as the objective for these algorithms, but rather the public interest, what we want to see, what is socially acceptable political speech and content on thinks kinds of platforms,” he said.

    I predict civil war by 4th of July. You just can't openly lie to people who can clearly see the truth. This has been building for years and in the last 7 months has accelerated into an out of control freight train and Wednesday was the cork popping. And they have no clue what's really coming. buckle up, it's gonna be ugly.

    Brothers, I and men in my family are going to take the next three days (Saturday morning until Tuesday morning) and dedicate them to prayer and fasting. Praying for wisdom to see our Lord's will and plan in the apparent chaos and wickedness of the times, boldness to stand and do what is right regardless of the cost, courage to love and pray for our enemies that they may see their folly and turn away from it, and repentance for living like we answer to no one and have all the time in the world.

    I welcome you and encourage you to join and enlist your friends, church, anyone who is willing to take it on.

    Behind the Hesco
    Tens of thousands of people watched the president undermined, assaulted and subverted for four years.

    As he did things for the people no president in recent memory has done.

    Not a single person went to jail or paid a price.

    During this time people were treated to mind boggling double-standards and hypocrisy. The media assisted the process in ways that probably kept a permanent smile on Goebbels in hell.

    People were physically attacked for supporting the president. Some lost their jobs and livelihoods. Still, nobody helped. People were locked into their homes and treated to the most egregious assaults on our liberty in history.

    Still, nobody helped.

    Major, demonstrable and substantive fraud was committed to steal a presidential election. There are material lawsuits, affidavits and clear cases of government officials usurping constitutional authority of the legislatures.

    Still, nobody helped us.

    Social media banned anyone who dared to mention the material fraud or any difference of opinion that would hurt their Democrat Party overlords.

    Still, nobody came to help us.

    Now they want to outright ban free speech, add states in order to secure a permanent tyranny, ban and register all firearms and ammo, silence anyone with a different opinion, attack any supporter of the president and throw the country into socialism. At this point I could think of few things that would better spark the tinderbox they've created over the last four years.

    It's about time we help ourselves. It's clear by now nobody else will.

    No, we are not playing by "their rules"... I just stated that I want to see the Hide becoming razor sharp with coverage of urgent events and breaking news that we can be the sole source for news for millions of people, gunnies and non gun owners alike. I get up each morning, open ARF and the Hide and within 10 minutes, I know everything that is happening around the world... From new mysterious illnesses emerging from Asia to some batshit cat lady in the UK marrying a chandelier... Lets keep it that way...

    Point being that God expects you to take care of yourself and not rely on him to miracle your problems away.
    Rely on Him always, He did not create man to be neutered, soyboy, helpless, indecisive creatures. He meets us where we are and helps us through. But make no mistake, God does not exist to help us, we exist to glorify Him.

    No offense but we are WAY past the point of praying at this point.
    I try not to respond to comments regarding religion because this is LL’s house and I intend to be respectful of his rules, but I fully disagree with this statement. I have been in situations in far away lands that seemed hopeless. No backup coming. Many on here have been in worse for sure. Prayer and the feeling of knowing that no matter what comes you are not alone is unexplainable and invaluable. This is a site for realism and the Pit is for rough play but I can tell you that prayer is a thing because God is real and not to be trifled with. You can downvote and disagree but I have btdt with this. It’s real and so is God.

    Majority of news articles refer to the DC protesters as insurrectionists.

    From Huffpost: WASHINGTON ― A right-wing West Virginia lawmaker who stormed the U.S. Capitol during an insurrectionist attack in support of President Donald Trump’s losing reelection campaign will face charges, a federal official said Friday.

    The charge was an indication that federal officials would use social media posts and other evidence to go after the insurrectionists even though they were allowed to leave the Capitol Building without being arrested and processed.

    WASHINGTON ― A right-wing West Virginia lawmaker who stormed the U.S. Capitol during an insurrectionist attack in support of President Donald Trump’s losing reelection campaign will face charges, a federal official said Friday.
    Derrick Evans, a member of the West Virginia House of Delegates who livestreamed himself invading the U.S. Capitol but claims he “committed no criminal act,” will face charges, an official with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia said. The case was expected to appear on a court docket on Friday.

    The charge was an indication that federal officials would use social media posts and other evidence to go after the insurrectionists even though they were allowed to leave the Capitol Building without being arrested and processed.
    Also charged was Richard Barnett, who posed for photos inside House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and gave an interview identifying himself.



    Ken Kohl, the No. 2 official in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, said the investigation was the highest priority for the Justice Department. “We literally have hundreds of prosecutors and agents working from three command centers on what is really a 24-7 operation,” he said. “It is active, it is fluid, it is evolving.”

    Steven D’Antuono, the assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington field office, said the bureau was “far from done” and that the rioting and destruction “would not be tolerated” by the FBI.

    “I want to stress this: Just because you’ve left the D.C. region, you can still expect a knock on the door if we find out that you were part of the criminal activity at the Capitol,” D’Antuono said._END

    Damn, they should have just looted and lit private property on fire like the other peaceful protestors did this summer.

    Laying the ground work to take your livelihood if you disagree with the left: https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/rioters-stormed-us-capitol-now-015719810.html

    JOSEPH PISANI and CATHY BUSSEWITZ
    Fri, January 8, 2021, 8:57 PM EST


    NEW YORK (AP) — A printing company in Maryland saw the photo on Twitter Wednesday night: an employee roaming the halls of the U.S. Capitol with a company badge around his neck. He was fired the next day.

    Others are facing similar repercussions at work for their participation in Wednesday's riot at the U.S. Capitol. Some business owners are being trashed on social media and their establishments boycotted, while rank-and-file employees at other businesses have been fired.
    The printing company, Navistar Direct Marketing, declined to name the worker but said it can’t offer employment to people “demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others.”

    More than 90 people have been arrested since Wednesday when loyalists to outgoing President Donald Trump disrupted lawmakers as they met to confirm the Electoral College results and President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. People on social media have been trying to identify rioters photographed or filmed at the Capitol Wednesday, pressuring companies that employ them to fire them.

    At a data analytics firm in suburban Chicago, the employee in question was the top boss. Cogensia fired CEO Bradley Rukstales Friday night for his participation in the riot.

    “This decision was made because Rukstales’ actions were inconsistent with the core values of Cogensia," said newly-named acting CEO Joel Schiltz in a statement. "Cogensia condemns what occurred at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, and we intend to continue to embrace the values of integrity, diversity and transparency in our business operations, and expect all employees to embrace those values as well.”
    Rukstales, who was arrested for unlawful entry, told a local CBS news channel that he had entered the Capitol and apologized for his role in the events. Calls and emails to Rukstales weren’t returned.

    A Cleveland school occupational therapist resigned from the district after her alleged involvement in the riot. A spokeswoman for a fire department near Orlando, Florida said one of its firefighters was being investigated for his participation. Sanford Fire Department firefighter Andy Williams has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome, said spokeswoman Bianca Gillett.
    Most private employers can fire workers for attending protests, since First Amendment rights only prohibit people from being punished by the government for their speech, not by a private employer, said Susan Kline, an Indianapolis-based labor and employment attorney at law firm Faegre Drinker.

    There are some exceptions: Those who work for the government may be more legally protected, and so too are many unionized workers, who typically have a contract listing the reasons for which they could be fired. And some states may have laws that protect workers' free speech.
    But “what people did at the Capitol Wednesday was rioting, not protesting,” said Aaron Holt, a labor and employment attorney with law firm Cozen O’Connor. “When someone violates the law, that’s almost never going to be protected, and a private employer is going to be within their rights to discipline or take some kind of action in response to that that might go against their fundamental core values.”

    Small businesses are also facing backlash on online review sites such as Yelp, which flagged at least 20 businesses for unusual review activity related to Wednesday’s rioting.

    One business, Becky’s Flowers in Midland, Texas, is owned by Jenny Cudd, a former mayoral candidate who posted a video on Facebook bragging about breaking into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office. By Friday, Cudd’s flower shop was flooded with dozens of one-star reviews in which she was called a traitor and domestic terrorist, along with photos of her inside the Capitol.
    Cudd later said in a video message to The Associated Press that she didn’t personally go into Pelosi’s office or see people break down the door, and that when she said “we,” she meant all of the people who were at the Capitol. She said she didn’t do anything violent or destroy any property.

    “I walked through an open door into the Capitol along with several hundred other people,” Cudd said.
    She added that she had “received several death threats along with thousands of one-star reviews from across the country of people who have never frequented my business."

    Yelp has flagged businesses for unusual review activity following less egregious but still controversial events. Reviewers raged on the Yelp page of Virginia restaurant The Red Hen after it booted former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders from its establishment a few years ago. And commenters from the left and right bombarded Big Apple Pizza’s Yelp page with political beliefs after former President Barack Obama was enthusiastically hugged by a customer there.

    Social media has outed people for their involvement in activities outside of the workplace, landing them in trouble with their employers. In 2017 after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, many posted photos on social media of those who participated, leading in some cases to their firing.

    In Louisiana, customers said they would boycott supermarket chain Rouses Market after retired owner Donald Rouse was shown in a photo at Wednesday's riot. Rouse said in an email statement that he attended the rally as a supporter of the president but left before the violence began.

    “I’m horrified by the violence and destruction we saw yesterday and the pain it has caused so many,” Rouse said. “Our country desperately needs to come together to heal, and I will do everything I can to be a part of that process.”

    The Krewe of Red Beans, a group which organizes parades, posted on Instagram that it would return $20,000 in donations it received from the market.

    I see that there is a lot of confusion on the difference between freedom of speech and reach...

    There have never been any guarantee or right that everyone can get everything then mean broadcasted to everybody on the face of the planet; we have just gotten accustomed to the privilege and the opportunity that the Internet provided.

    btw. On my side of the globe Parler is up both feed and on AppStore, might be regional shutdown?

    I find it odd that the FBI can solve the Tennessee bombing with DNA BACKUP in less than 24 hours.

    Then post up 100's pictures of suspects within hours.

    But they sure as fuck sat on a total POS little girl rapping assholes laptop for almost a year and can't find anything on it.

    By the way, did the skies open up and God smote the enemy to save you? No...you and your mates did what you were trained to do and thus walked out the other side.
