VIDEO: “If You Need All This To Protect Your Inauguration from the People, Maybe the F-ing People Didn’t F-ing Elect You!” – DC Worker Shows Video of Military Checkpoints in City

 By Jim Hoft |The Gateway Pundit


RELATED COMMENTARY by Pamela Geller | The Geller Report : The election was stolen — they know it.


A worker in DC filmed the military presence in the city early in the morning. He asks why would someone need to put up such barriers if he legitimately won the election?

At the end of this video the worker shares:

This is what our intersections look like now. If you need all this to protect your inauguration from the people, maybe the f***ing people didn’t f***ing elect you!”




Biden Inaugural Like Baghdad: Green Zone, Red Zone, Military Checkpoints to Enter and Leave Downtown D.C., Bridges Into City to Be Closed

By Kristinn Taylor | Gateway Pundit

In the days leading up to the Biden inaugural, the nation’s capital has been turned into an occupied military zone like Baghdad.  Armed troops authorized to use lethal force are manning checkpoints to enter and leave downtown Washington, D.C.  Green Zone and and Red Zone perimeters have been established. Several bridges into the city from neighboring Virginia are scheduled to be closed next week for the inaugural.

Sean Spicer, President Trump’s first press secretary and current Newsmax TV host, posted video apparently taken Friday night that shows a military checkpoint to leave D.C. near the Lincoln Memorial. The video also shows cars on 16th Street near K Street parked in rows blockading the roadway. But first, a scene-setter report by Spicer’s Newsmax co-host Lyndsay Keith from 16th and K in the daytime.





Washington D.C. remains locked down with barricades and thousands of National Guard troops.

Another report on checkpoints to leave D.C., “A friend just called me from his car in DC, he was dropping his wife off at her office in NW. They had to go through an Armed Checkpoint to enter the city! Leaving the city, he had to stop at another Armed Checkpoint.
He was required to show his ID. #UnlikeAnElection”

Report by a construction early Friday morning:

Four of the main bridges in and out of D.C. from Virginia will be closed for 48 hours around the inauguration. Two bridges from Virginia to D.C. are not set to be closed: Key Bridge from Rosslyn to Georgetown and Chain Bridge from McLean to Canal Rd. near the Palisades neighborhood.

The Secret Service posted a detailed list on Thursday of the streets blockaded by military checkpoints and divided into a Green Zone and Red Zone.

“Green Zone – Vehicle Restricted Zone Vehicle traffic restricted to residents or businesses within the restricted area and National Guard Personnel will be assisting with verifying traffic entering into the Green Zone.”

“Red Zone – Street Closures Vehicle traffic restricted to authorized vehicles only with proper vehicle placard.”

Extra checks are in place for those flying to D.C., “Extra security for flights coming into DC: I boarded a flight from LGA to DC a moment ago. At the gate, a TSA agent checked (again) all passenger IDs against boarding passes. Homeland Security officer w/ a dog was standing beside the door and said, Yes, this is for inauguration.”

Also, airlines are banning guns in checked luggage on flights to D.C. area airports.

These restrictions and security checkpoints are supposed to be temporary–just for the inauguration.

Poll: Republicans Overwhelmingly Side with President Trump over Mitch McConnell

 By KRISTINA WONG | Breitbart News 

Republicans are overwhelmingly siding with President Trump over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), according to a new Axios-Ipsos poll published Wednesday evening.

The poll showed that 62 percent of Republicans think Trump was right to contest the election results and an even higher 69 percent do not blame him for violence at the Capitol last week.

The poll showed that 91 percent of those who identified as “Trump supporters” supported his continued contesting of the election. Of those who identified as “traditional” Republicans, 46 percent supported it, with 36 opposed.

An even higher percentage of Trump supporters — 96 percent — said Trump makes the Republican party better, and a slim majority of traditional Republicans — 51 percent — agreed.

Ninety-two percent of Trump supporters want to see Trump run in 2024, while 41 percent of traditional Republicans agreed.

The poll also showed that only 42 percent of Republicans approved of the recent behavior of McConnell, versus 63 percent for Trump.

The poll was conducted January 11-13, 2021, with 1,019 general population adults age 18 or older, and had a margin of sampling error of +/- 3.4 percentage points.

Axios reported:

Why it matters: The survey shows why Trump could run again in 2024 (and possibly win) if he isn’t convicted — or banned from holding federal office — by the Senate. It also shows the peril and opportunity for institutionalists like McConnell trying to reclaim the GOP.

A sizeable portion of Republicans polled identified as “Trump Republicans” — 36 percent. Fifty-six percent considered themselves “traditional” Republicans.

The Trump Republicans are still large enough of a group to either stay and dominate primary politics or walk away if Trump is cast out, which would weaken the GOP’s force against Democrats.

McConnell has said he has not yet made up his mind whether he would vote to impeach Trump, despite reporting that he was in favor of it.

A House vote to impeach Trump passed because of Democrat support but was a flop among Republicans, with only ten GOPs led by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) voting to impeach. Cheney now faces mounting calls for her resignation as the GOP conference chair.

The poll showed very little appetite for removing Trump among Trump Republicans — one percent — and among traditional Republicans — about one in four.



New Poll Should Have Mitch McConnell Rethinking Support for Trump's Removal

The 2016 election showed the gulf between the GOP base and its leadership in Congress. The base didn’t want Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan anymore. They wanted something new. Donald Trump zeroed in on the issue that the base was truly passionate about, which was immigration. There were others, but Trump getting on that narrative first catapulted him to the top of the GOP field. The base wanted fair trade deals; there was an increased skepticism on free trade. The GOP leadership was the opposite.

As we leave 2020, it’s now a fact that the GOP is Trump’s party. Trumpism is here to stay, and there’s not much that can be done about it. For starters, it’s not like there’s much of a difference between this right-leaning populist variant and the traditional conservative Republican agenda. Both sides want a smaller government, fewer taxes, and less regulation. They want economic growth. They want a strong national defense. They’re both against the authoritarian political correctness ethos. They’re for school choice. They may differ on criminal justice reform, tariffs (though that was mostly a negotiating tactic with the Chinese), and some aspects of the America First doctrine, but overall both wings overlap a lot. Oh, and both sides want a conservative judiciary. I don’t see where the massive divide is here. On foreign policy, Trumpism is averse to nation-building and long protracted wars. The horror!

It’s also an ideology that has brought millions more into the GOP camp concerning those who have never voted before. The GOP of old is gone. Dead. It’s over. To use a quote from "The Mandalorian," "This is the way."

It’s why Sen. Mitch McConnell’s somewhat aggressive support for the Democratic impeachment push over the Capitol Hill riot is fraught with danger. The base isn’t leaving Trump. In fact, it wants GOP politicians to be more like the president. Even after the chaotic scene last week, where five people died, the base isn’t leaving the 45th president. Ninety-one percent of GOP voters are still dedicated to making America great again (via Washington Examiner):

An overwhelming majority of President Trump supporters surveyed by pollster Frank Luntz over the weekend said they’d still vote for the president again despite last week’s riot on Capitol Hill.

“Despite their criticism of his conduct since November 3rd and last week,  Trump voters say they’d still vote for him if another presidential election were held today,” Luntz tweeted Monday.

Okay, I get it. They’re Trump voters. They’re not leaving, but other polls are also showing the changes that have occurred in the base. When it comes to choosing between Mitch McConnell and Trump, GOP voters break for Trump. It’s not shocking at all. It’s why McConnell’s alliance with Senate Democrats here on impeachment could be a monumental blunder. Does the Capitol Hill riot change the situation? No. As of now, and as it will be until the next election in 2024, Donald J. Trump is bound to be the nominee should he decide to run again. Also, the so-called Trump Republican wing is numerous in their millions — and has the ability to truly chop the more traditional GOP at the knees if the latter does stuff like, I don’t know — support the impeachment of Donald Trump (via Axios):

Big majorities of Republicans still think Trump was right to challenge his election loss, support him, don’t blame him for the Capitol mob and want him to be the Republican nominee in 2024, Margaret Talev and David Nather write.

The survey shows why Trump could run again in 2024 (and possibly win) if he isn't convicted — or banned from holding federal office — by the Senate. It also shows the peril and opportunity for institutionalists like McConnell trying to reclaim the GOP.

In addition, it helps explain why a majority of House Republicans voted against certifying the election, and against impeachment.

There's a deep schism in the GOP, with a 56% majority considering themselves "traditional" Republicans and 36% calling themselves Trump Republicans.


The Trump Republicans are still large enough of a group to either stay and dominate primary politics or walk away if Trump is cast out, which would weaken the GOP's force posture against Democrats.

Sorry, Never Trumpers, but this populist wave is going to be sticking around for a long time. You can’t purge this wing. It’ll be political suicide.

Veritas Vid: Ex-PBS Attorney Dreams of Taking Republicans’ Kids to ‘Enlightenment Camps’

 By Web McMaster

Project Veritas’ latest video catches ex-PBS attorney Michael Beller as he dreams of using Joe Biden’s presidency as an opportunity to take the kids of Republicans to ‘enlightenment camps.’ PBS has since denounced Beller, but what is it that makes some activists so comfortable with their radical ideas that they’ll openly share them with a virtual stranger?


PBS Lawyer Caught on Tape Saying Trump Supporters' Kids Should Be Taken Away and Thrown in Camps


An undercover video released by Project Veritas shows PBS principal counsel Michael Beller saying violence and insurrection are appropriate actions when your candidate loses. Asked what he would do if Trump were to win the election, he replies, “Go to the White House and throw Molotov cocktails.”

Left-wing violence doesn’t shock anyone. This is par for the course. Most disturbing were his statements about Trump supporters’ children. “Even if Biden wins,” he said, “We go for all the Republican voters, Homeland Security will take their children away and we’ll put them into reeducation camps.”

Beller went on to express his concerns that Republicans are all bad parents. “Kids are growing up knowing nothing but Trump for four years. You’ve got to wonder what they’re going to be like. They’ll be raising a generation of intolerant horrible people — horrible kids.”

What Beller doesn’t seem to understand about most Republicans is that we don’t involve our children in politics for the most part and, instead, like to shield them from the unbridled hatred that is thrown our way by people like Beller until they are at least teens. No Republicans I know are saturating their young kids in politics. That’s unhealthy and, dare I say, bad parenting.

PBS is a publicly-funded operation. James O’Keefe’s undercover sting made them move fast. Beller has been fired.

My favorite part of an O’Keefe series is when James confronts the subject after the video has been released. This is the kind of journalism I love. Project Veritas gets results. I’m proud of PBS for firing Beller immediately and not quibbling about it. PBS offers wonderful programming that people on both sides of the aisle enjoy and benefit from. There’s no room for this kind of hatred and bigotry in public programming.

Capitol rioter arrested for encouraging violence is an anti-Trump agitator and a Black Lives Matter supporter


James Earle Sullivan said he was there to document the protests - Image Source: YouTube screenshot

A Utah man arrested for his part in the rioting at the U.S. Capitol admitted that he was not a Trump supporter but in fact an anti-Trump activist.

John Earle Sullivan told KUTV after the riot that he is the founder of Insurgence USA, and that he does not align with the president politically. He said that he founded Insurgence USA after the killing of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The mission statement of the group on their website said that they sought "the unification of our nation because a people united will never be divided."

Sullivan told KUTV that he was in the Capitol in order to document several protests. But he also admitted that he entered into the Capitol building through a window.

Once inside, federal prosecutors allege that he shouted for more violence.

The affidavit for Sullivan's arrest documents his actions on the day of the rioting from the footage that Sullivan himself took and posted. It claims that he encouraged the violence as he documented it:

After the crowd broke through the last barricade, and as SULLIVAN and the others approach the Capitol Building, SULLIVAN can be heard in the video saying at various points: 'There are so many people. Let's go. This s--- is ours! F--- yeah,' 'We accomplished this s---. We did this together. F--- yeah! We are all a part of this history,' and 'Let's burn this s--- down.

In video obtained from Insurgence USA by KSTU-TV, Sullivan says to the camera that he is a supporter of Black Lives Matter.

After the rioting, Sullivan was invited onto CNN to discuss what he witnessed at the U.S. Capitol.

Sullivan was arrested and charged with entering a restricted building or grounds, "civil disorders," and violent entry or disorderly conduct.

He is scheduled to appear before court on Friday in Utah.



BLM instigator of Capitol riots, John Earle Sullivan, arrested

By JD Rucker | January 14, 2021 

The Utah Black Lives Matter "activist" has been bragging about his involvement in instigating the Capitol riots. Now, he's been arrested.

The deadly riots at the Capitol last week that have sparked Big Tech cancelations and prompted another impeachment of President Trump were instigated in part by Black Lives Matter and Antifa “activists,” according to multiple media reports. One of the highest profile suspects, John Earle Sullivan from Utah, has been arrested.

He was there and documented the murder of Ashli Babbitt, who was shot in the neck by law enforcement. His arrest warrant, available here, lists three reasons for probable cause: 

1.      committed or attempted to commit, any act to obstruct, impede, or interfere with any fireman or law enforcement officer lawfully engaged in the lawful performance of his official duties incident to and during the commission of a civil disorder which in any way or degree obstructs, delays, or adversely affects the performance of any federally protected function;

2.      did knowingly enter or remain in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, or did knowingly, and with intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions, engage in disorderly or disruptive conduct, and

3.      did willfully and knowingly engage in disorderly or disruptive conduct, at any place in the Grounds or  in any of the Capitol Buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session of Congress or either House of Congress, or the orderly conduct in that building of any deliberations of either House of Congress. Specifically, on or about January 6, 2021, SULLIVAN knowingly and willfully joined a crowd of individuals who forcibly entered the U.S. Capitol and impeded, disrupted, and disturbed the orderly conduct of business by the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.

Mainstream media reports have, from the start, claimed that the riots were initiated entirely by supporters of President Trump. Moreover, they have gone so far as to doctor a video to support the contention of Democrats and even some Republicans that the President sparked the attack by calling on his supporters to storm the Capitol.

Moreover, they have gone so far as to doctor a video to support the contention of Democrats and even some Republicans that the President sparked the attack by calling on his supporters to storm the Capitol. 

According to Information Liberation, Sullivan was filmed instigating the attack on the Capitol. 

One America News reporter Jack Posobiec said on Twitter, “According to the FBI, anarchist John Sullivan told police officers to stand down in the Speaker’s Lobby, then agitated the crowd to attack the doors and windows while he filmed. Moments later Ashley Babbitt was shot and killed.” 

Sullivan was a guest on CNN after the riots that left between four and six people dead. The circumstances surrounding the deaths of two police officers are still being investigated. Some media outlets have reported that they did not die as a result of injuries sustained at the riots on January 6.

This story will be buried by mainstream media and suppressed by Big Tech. The arrest of John Earle Sullivan, a known Black Lives Matter leader and provocateur, belies the accepted narrative that Trump-supporters alone caused the riots.

Tucker: Impeaching Trump only enhances his stature with GOP voters

'Tucker Carlson Tonight' host explains why Democrats need to keep talking about Trump to keep party united


Major Twist in US Capitol Storming Might Have Gutted the Democrats' Narrative on Trump Impeachment

 By Matt Vespa | 

President Trump was impeached yesterday by a mostly party-line vote. Ten House Republicans did cross the picket line to back the Democratic Party’s unhealthy fetish with impeaching this president. They did it using the Russian collusion hoax and now with this riot that erupted on Capitol Hill last week. The chaos occurred on January 6 when Congress was certifying the 2020 Electoral College results. Pro-Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol. Five people died. It renewed an impeachment push from Democrats. More Republicans were going to back it. In the Senate, Mitch McConnell reportedly is not all that upset over the move and did not rule out convicting the president. Did Trump mean to urge his supporters to storm the Hill? No. But it doesn't take much after a contentious election with mountains of voter fraud allegations and years of populist rage to create a situation for things to boil over.

So, after the articles were passed after a day of political theater from these clowns, we're getting reports that this whole incident may have been pre-planned. Yes, our great and hopelessly anti-Trump FBI finally came in promptly to drop this development after the Democrats had set this "remove Trump" train into motion. And of all outlets, CNN was the one to report on it.

Evidence uncovered so far, including weapons and tactics seen on surveillance video, suggests a level of planning that has led investigators to believe the attack on the US Capitol was not just a protest that spiraled out of control, a federal law enforcement official says.

Among the evidence the FBI is examining are indications that some participants at the Trump rally at the Ellipse, outside the White House, left the event early, perhaps to retrieve items to be used in the assault on the Capitol.

A team of investigators and prosecutors are also focused on the command and control aspect of the attack, looking at travel and communications records to determine if they can build a case that is similar to a counterterrorism investigation, the official said.

But wait, Congress is moving to impeach Trump on the basis that he incited the riot and fomented an insurrection, right? That was the allegation lobbed by the Left. But this development at the FBI sort of torpedoes the incitement aspect of the narrative, no? There’s a host of nutty stuff going on here. We have Democrats alleging Republican members of Congress gave these Capitol Building rioters "reconnaissance" tours prior to the January 6 rally. We have some alleging that Capitol Police were involved. It’s an inside job — all of this is being lobbed without any evidence. Will something be found to corroborate any of this? Maybe — but as of now, you simply cannot toss out allegations that explosive without proof. One could argue that’s peddling…conspiracy theories. Either way, it could be that the entire narrative behind impeaching Trump just got gutted — but it doesn’t matter. First, Trump is gone in less than a week. Second, while there will be more GOP votes in the Senate for a conviction, it won’t reach the two-thirds majority and Trump will be able to run again in 2024.

Wednesday, January 13, 2021


Impeaching a president is incredibly serious, so I want you to hear directly from me on this important matter.

Voting in support of the impeachment of President Trump under these circumstances will do great damage to the institutions of government and could invite further violence at a time the President is calling for calm.

If there was a time for America's political leaders to bend a knee and ask for God's counsel and guidance, it is now. The most important thing for leaders to do in times of crisis is to make things better, not worse.

The process used in the House of Representatives today to impeach President Trump was an affront to any concept of due process and will further divide the country. The President, who will be leaving office in less than a week, has committed to an orderly transfer of power, encouraging calm, and rejecting violence.

The House sought to legitimize a snap impeachment totally void of due process. There were no hearings or witnesses. It was a rushed process that sets a new precedent, and it will become a threat to future presidents.

Additionally, I fear leaders of the Senate are making the problem worse, not better. The last thing the country needs is an impeachment trial of a president who is leaving office in one week.

Democrats previously impeached the President over a matter which was not worthy of that process. Now they have done it again, believing that this effort will wash for history the fact that the first impeachment was based on the thinnest of pretenses: a phone call with the leader of Ukraine. Impeachment should never be a 'do-over,' but that is what Democrats have done today.

I believe my Republican colleagues who legitimize this process are doing great damage to the country, the future of the presidency, and the Republican Party.

The millions who have supported President Trump and his agenda should not be demonized because of the despicable actions of a seditious mob. The individuals who participated in the storming of the U.S. Capitol should be met with the full force of the law. They should and will be held accountable.
