Marxist Tactics — Stir Up & ConQuer
“… I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,” Trump said during his speech.
I was so grateful to have gotten so close. When I scanned his energy, I did not get an evil swamp vibe. I did not. I have spoken to people who have hugged this man and cried. You can feel evil. With this said, he is an actor playing himself. Trump was very arguably a successful operation, on many levels.
A stream of people were already heading down Constitution Avenue toward the Capitol before Trump had even finished speaking.
Although I had no idea at the time; it was around 12:45 p.m. that a suspicious package, later revealed as a pipe bomb, was reportedly found at the Republican Committee headquarters, just south of the Capitol. I was just returning to the Moxy Hotel on K Street.

The first wave of ‘protestors’ arrived at 12:40 p.m. At around 12:57 p.m. several people were caught jumping a fence at 1st Street behind the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial. A minute later, a crowd broke through a fence near the Peace Monument. At 1:01 p.m., the first police line broke on the west side of the Capitol. The President finished his speech at the Ellipse in the President’s Park at 1:12 p.m. It was around 1:50 p.m. that the Capitol was breached. You can check out this The Epoch Times timeline.
By the time I got to the Freedom Plaza at 2:20 p.m., I learned that people had “stormed the Capitol.” What did that mean? When I asked a MAGA hat wearer, I was told Pence was a traitor. This confused me further since I was listening to the live session on my phone as I walked, and Pence hadn’t yet spoken. The move to the Capitol was seemingly prompted by a 2.5-page letter Pence sent to lawmakers around 12:53 p.m., stating that he planned to certify the election of Biden — therefore rejecting the alternate slate of electors in contested states. Remember people were seen heading that way prior to this letter.
“It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not,” Pence claimed.
It would only be after the storming past 3:00 a.m. that Mike Pence officially certified Joe Biden’s election “victory,” signing off on the results — 306 electoral votes for Biden and 232 for President Donald Trump.
Sarmo, who was also headed to the Capitol to suss out what was happening, spotted a makeshift gallows set up with a noose erected near the Capitol Reflecting Pool. By whom?
“The gallows was the first thing that made me say ‘what the hell is going on?’ It seemed staged.”
Meanwhile, I spotted a fleet of cops on Pennsylvania Avenue whizzing past me with sirens headed to the Capitol. Some guy yelled “don’t let them through. Don’t let them through,” which I found odd.
Days later, I would see footage of several police officers actually waving people in with almost feigned resistance. Who gave them the order to open the doors and let people just walk in? I also saw footage of people dressing in Trump gear from their Antifa uniforms of black.
I say, the only way to storm the Capitol is if someone lets you storm the Capitol.
“Do police officers opening doors fit the narrative of a violent insurrection?” wonders Cat McGuire, a New York City activist who attended the January 6th event. “The media should be broadcasting footage to document that many people were practically ‘invited in.’” Why?
Michael Yon, an author, a former member of U.S. Special Forces who was at the Capitol protests himself, said that the areas near the Capitol had no real security that day.
“ It was like a straight shot, like Atlanta airport, with lights telling you where to land,” Yon said. “It was a clear shot to the Capitol. Where was the security on a day like this? It was unbelievable.”
Yon said that lack of security also looked like an “invitation” to proceed to storm the Capitol.
“They had taken down the barriers, which were nothing. They were like the snow fence—you know, the plastic ones that you can unfurl—so those were nothing. I mean, literally, a child can take them down,” he said.
He believes the storming of the Capitol was influenced by some typical crowd-control methods. 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 was not just a protest that spiraled out of control.
By the following day, barricades were apparently placed around the Capitol. By January 16th, it looked like a prison complex. Drones, military choppers, 30,000 soldiers, shoot-to-kill orders, barbed wire fences, and armored vehicles. What a festive time. All this for a virtual inauguration that could have arguably been pre-taped and is illegitimate? They claimed they didn’t want optics for the President, but one week later, the Capitol looked like a Baghdad war zone? What was the real reason why Mayor Muriel Bowser didn’t add enforcements on January 6th?
According to Colorado Congressman Jason Crow, acting Secretary of Defense, Christopher Miller, approved the deployment of 340 D.C. National Guard personnel in non-tactical gear for traffic control. The Department of Defense’s several offerings of National Guard resources were refused. Apparently, they were preparing for “a gathering similar in size” to that which occurred on December 12th, which was supposedly a few thousand.
Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund was concerned about the size of the pro-Trump crowds expected to stream into Washington in protest. To be on the safe side, Sund asked that the D.C. National Guard be placed on standby in case he needed quick backup.
The National Pulse reported that “Sund recalled a conference call with Pentagon officials and officials from the D.C. government. He said on the call: ‘I am making an urgent, urgent immediate request for National Guard assistance… I have got to get boots on the ground.’”
The police rejected several offers of help, while Sund, who resigned effective Jan.16th, says House and Senate security officials rejected or slow-walked multiple requests to call in the National Guard.
Pentagon officials said the National Guard wasn’t suited for an immediate deployment and couldn’t be engaged in law enforcement actions.
