A DIFFERENT LOOK AT THE CAPITOL RIOT

Father, reveal truth to our nation and its leaders. Guide our president with Your wisdom in this decision and protect our nation from evil.

The Capitol Police have over 2,000 sworn officers. A police force dedicated to protecting Capitol Hill has more personnel in its service than the police forces of most of the country.

Congress’ private cops are the 19th largest police force in the country. It’s a larger force than the police forces of Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, or Milwaukee with a massive $460 million budget. . . .

While Democrats advocated defunding the police, their private police force budget shot up from $375 million in 2016 to $460 million in 2020. After the Capitol Hill riot, expect it to go higher. . . .

Media narratives have blamed President Trump for not calling out the National Guard, but the military should not have been needed to supplement a police force as big as those of Atlanta or Denver, but was not tied down with an entire city to police, and really only had one simple job. . ..

When Black Lives Matter rioters, incited by Democrats and the media, besieged the White House, 60 members of the Secret Service’s Uniformed Division were injured holding the line while President Trump and his family were taken to a bunker. 11 members of the Service were hospitalized due to the violence of the BLM riot that Democrats falsely claimed was peaceful.

Much of the heavy lifting was done by the Park Police, another one of the innumerable mini police forces swarming the city, which has only 641 sworn officers spread across three cities.

65 Park Police officers were wounded in the BLM riots and 11 had to be hospitalized.

This roughly matches the 60 Capitol Police and 58 D.C. cops injured in the Capitol riot.

Attorney General Barr listed a figure of 150 officers injured in total in the BLM riots in D.C. . . .

In the Capitol riot, Brian Sicknick, a pro-Trump veteran, was struck on the head, suffered a brain clot and died. During the BLM riots, law enforcement officers suffered concussions. None died, but that’s a matter of luck, not restraint on the part of BLM thugs using clubs and bricks.

Despite the heavy toll on the injured officers from the Secret Service and the Park Police, Democrats and the media falsely accused both forces of violently assaulting “peaceful protesters”. Instead of condemning the violence which included bricks, bottles, fireworks, and bodily fluids being thrown at law enforcement officers, Democrats formed a lynch mob. . ..

During the BLM riots, Democrats and their media considered mace against a violent assailant an overreaction, but think that shooting an unarmed woman who was not attacking anyone to be an underreaction proving that it’s not about policing, but that leftist lives matters, others don’t.

But the tactical question is why the Capitol rioters got into Congress and the BLM rioters never made it inside the White House. Intruders have gotten into the White House before, but the Secret Service and the Park Police kept the violent racist mob from getting through.

The White House has better security, but the question is why is Congress’ security so bad?

It’s not for a lack of money or manpower. The Capitol Police force is ridiculously huge. It has a massive budget. But it also has virtually no oversight except from a corrupt congressional system.  . . .

When the FBI raided Rep. William ‘Cold Cash’ Jefferson’s office, there was outrage and Rep. Nancy Pelosi signed on to a statement demanding that the feds return the papers that they had “unconstitutionally” seized from the corrupt Dem’s office. The issue at stake was the FBI, which answers to the executive, was not supposed to operate on Capitol Hill and on Pelosi’s turf.

“Not anyone here is above the law,” Pelosi argued. But that was exactly the point. Congress had its own private police and the FBI was not supposed to set foot in her domain. . ..

The Capitol Police failed badly where the Secret Service and the Park Police had prevailed against BLM’s attack on the White House. They failed in ways that are baffling and inexcusable.

The most obvious problem is that some Capitol Police appeared to allow many of the protesters inside. . . .

The Capitol Police had the manpower and the budget to secure Congress. And there’s no excuse why Congress could not and should not have been secured.  . . .

These mixed messages may have been due to the Black Lives Matter effect, a successor to the Ferguson Effect, which left many police officers afraid to resist criminals for fear of losing their jobs and even going to jail. When the White House came under attack, Attorney General Barr and national security officials rallied law enforcement personnel to make a strong stand.

When Capitol Hill came under siege, there was no congressional leadership to respond to it. Instead of taking command of the situation, House members panicked, squabbled, and let their private police flail with the situation while they hid away. The sharp contrast between President Trump and Attorney General Barr in Lafayette Square, and members of Congress waiting for their police force to protect them isn’t just ideological.  . . .

President Trump, AG Barr, and administration officials gave clear orders to federal law enforcement to stand their ground. Administration officials then protected officers from the fallout as the same Democrats howling for the heads of Capitol rioters were howling for the heads of Secret Service and Park Police leaders who were holding back the hordes of racist BLM rioters. . .

The Capitol riot should have been just another stressful encounter that would have been contained at the expense of injuring some officers and rioters without breaching Congress.

The media has constructed a false narrative in which the White House overreacted to BLM and underreacted to the Capitol riot. But it wasn’t the White House’s job to protect Congress. That’s why Congress has a force of 2,300 people and a $460 million budget with just one job to do. . . .

But there is little question that Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have massively profited from their mismanagement, initiating proposals to impeach President Trump, expel legislators, purge Republicans from social media platforms, and to cut off corporate donations to them.

While the media propaganda blares non-stop, heads are quietly rolling at the Capitol Police, but don’t expect that to do anything except lower morale and water down the force even further.

Meanwhile the party of police defunding will see to it that the Capitol Police budget tops those of most major cities, that its ranks continue to swell, and that it remains as incompetent as ever. .. .

Why couldn’t Congress’ private police force of 2,000 protect it from a mob of hundreds? Don’t ask Congress. Just pay the $460 million, cry over the headlines, and keep your mouth shut.

  1. Thank You for stating truth.
    Lord we ask the TRUTH be revealed and all deception uncovered.
    Thank you for all those who stand for truth in America and are fighting on the frontline to bring it forth.

  2. Just what we need to see on a regular basis: accurate analysis, free from emotional manipulation and partisan deception! Thank you for having the courage to write this article, and thanks to IFA for sharing this article with all of us. I now feel confident that I can pray with both the spirit and the understanding. I have read several other articles that give details about some of the Capitol Hill rioters who have been arrested. Lord, may the light of Your glory shine down on us, revealing corruption and protecting us from evil. Amen.

  3. God,

    We are asking in Your Holy Name to bring us help. To make a way for our President of the United States to help us in these crisis times in our lives as United States citizens hit hard because of the illnesses and deaths in our lives. The struggles and challenges. In Jesus Christ Holy Name. Amen

    1. now was not the time, but when will be? “… We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.-

  4. This info is helpful to remind us how not to repeat in the future.it is not necessary to go around this mountain again. Pray for seeking the truth that will come forth if we persevere. Lord,here our cry for mercy&justice.

    15
  5. Good question! But I think we all know the answer to that question already. That’s why Jesus called us to pray without ceasing and to fast for these hard and difficult things with Him and eachother and to call things that be not , as tho they are and those things that are in heaven will manifest themselves in front of our very
    own eyes here on Earth so The world will finally know and confess Jesus, alone, is Lord and every knee will bow to Him. Amen.

  6. Dear Heavenly Father, please protect our men and women in law enforcement from the lies, abuse, and misrepresentation they have increasingly suffered from the forces of the left over the last year or more. Lord please prevent the enemy from forcing good people out of law enforcement and replacing them with their evil operatives. Lord let the hypocrisy and dark designs of the left be revealed for all to see. Confound the efforts of radical groups and their allies in government and the media who seek to vilify our police. Lord may you give us the power, courage, and wisdom to hold the line and push back against this tide of evil. In Jesus precious name I pray, O’ Lord, Amen.

  7. The same decision making patterns are mentioned throughout this article on securing the Capital.
    1. It’s someone else’s fault not theirs.
    2. More of the tax payers money is the answer.
    3. They don’t have to live under the same rules, limitations, and restrictions as “We the people.”
    May God bless the brave people in law enforcement who are trying to function under this type of leadership. May God’s hand be upon them. May he bless them with wisdom, discernment, strength, and sustaining courage. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

    Praying for term limits.

    34
    1. When it comes to term limits, watch out what you pray for. The statists have a nasty way of not upholding the rules for themselves while enforcing them or writing new rules for those they disagree with. We might be better off with a few of these:
      The Read The Bills Act (https://downsizedc.org/blog/evidence-read-bills/ )
      The Write The Laws Act (https://downsizedc.org/act/write-the-laws-act/ )
      The One Subject at a Time Act (https://downsizedc.org/act/one-subject-at-a-time-act/ )

      May God bring us leaders who respect the rule of law, and especially the Bill of Rights, and who will not hypocritically pass laws for the people the leaders themselves don’t have to keep.

  8. We as prayer warriors need to pray for those who are charged with protecting the public and upholding the rule of law. I sometimes forget that in praying for this nation. Thank you for this article. My prayer:
    Dear Lord,please give guidance to these brave men and women who are now targets of the leftist agenda. Give them a loud voice to be able to show truth. I pray especially for those whose “heads will roll” because of the Capitol breach…I pray safety for any whistleblowers in the Capitol police. And I pray that this will be a time for them to trust in You. In Jesus name, and in His authority, I pray

  9. Thank you, Daniel, for that incisive reporting on what really happened at the Capitol riots. We need more reporting like this, Bravo!!!Thank you from another American, who is alarmed and dismayed at the absolute corruption and vileness of Congress and the present regime. May God have mercy upon our souls.

  10. reviewing article thank you for a most revealing article you really put this in the proper perspective we appreciate your work and we’re praying that the truth will be told we are praying
