Storming the Capitol, cool in 2018, insurrection in 2020



“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

~ John F. Kennedy, Jr.


“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”

“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”

“The time is always right to do what is right.”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

We’ve been here before – storming the Capitol I mean. Democrats did it in 2018 to object to Justice Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court.


The Sentinel had people in D.C.  We are traditional Americans, not lunatics. In the past, I’ve covered Tea Party rallies and never saw violence from the right — ever. This last event involved a small number causing chaos in relation to the numbers who went. Judging from the streets that were filled with rally-goers, we believe there were two million. Contrary to what you heard, only hundreds, perhaps a couple of hundred, were in the Capitol. Most just followed the crowd and posed for photos smiling because they didn’t see the seriousness of their situation. They were not there to cause trouble for the most part.

The crowd was described to me by everyone I spoke with as benign. People were smiling, calm, laughing, and no one was riled up after listening to President Trump’s speech — no one.

We listened at home and there was nothing in that speech that indicated people should break into the Capitol violently.

The whole thing smells of a possible set up. Something’s not right, but we will wait and see.


So far, 68 people were arrested out of a couple of million or hundreds of thousands if you believe some reports. Not all of the people in the Capitol building realized their behavior was criminal.

Honestly, I only spotted one radical leftist in the crowd, John Sullivan. Antifa-expert Andy Ngo said he didn’t see any Antifa that he knows in the crowds. That doesn’t mean they weren’t there. It seems like the perpetrators were right-wing radicals, but let’s wait and see who is charged as ringleaders. But please know the Boogaloo Boys are not right-wing — they’re socialists.

The majority of the people were just normal Americans although far-left NPR called them all right-wing extremists.


Republicans are folding so quickly, my head is spinning. Instead of standing up for their supporters, even in bad times, they’re resigning, railing, and decrying. Stop it!  If you want to survive you better be there for us guys, even when we flounder! There is no back to business as usual.

We have so few in political office with core values. Stick with what you believe and fight for it, even in tough times.

We on the right are not here to argue, hurt, control, or cave. We love the America that gave us so much and we want that for our children and grandchildren.


The agenda put forward by Joe Biden is socialistic at best, communistic at worst. The power given to Big Tech is alarming, and the disregard of our constitutional rights is frightening.

There is hope that Joe Biden will not get to do everything he claims he will do. Senator Manchin said he won’t vote for ending the filibuster or stacking the Court. We’ll see how he holds up under the onslaught he will face.

I spoke with the man who ran our 2 million-viewer Facebook page — taken down after Election Day — and he told me what his family experienced under the monster, Adolf Hitler. He said this is pre-war Germany. If you know history, you know the policies put forward now were also embraced by certain dictators.


Officials had to do very little to prove to us that the election was legitimate, but they would not do it. If our election is going to be anyone votes whenever — we don’t have a country.



Learn your history. Obviously, we are early in the process of destruction, but it wouldn’t take long for the compromised Democrat Party to destroy this country.

Opening the borders to uneducated, needy people who don’t know what’s going on and then spending wildly until they destroy capitalism, will finish us off. The left doesn’t like capitalism.

For now, we need peaceful non-compliance and peaceful sit-ins and rallies. We must get off our couches and do it.

Personally, I will not die a socialist or a communist, will you? Republicans must resist or they’re over as a party. We are the new resistance. Either you’re with us or you’re the enemy.

Don Surber is a former newsman who has a very interesting Blogspot. He wrote a column, “Storming the Capitol was cool in 2018.” He included two of the following clips. It’s a good article. All of his articles are good when I get a chance to look at them.

We have some clips to add. This does not justify the violence on Wednesday, but it helps explain the problem of a two-tiered system:

Hey, hey, ho, ho!

The vantage point from high above the Capital crowd. It’s no wonder there weren’t many more deaths. That place was packed in and the police above Knew It. For them to gas that crowd was irresponsible in the extreme.

We can surely expect protection from an insurgent insurrection by Patriot Act 2.0. Lindsey Graham will help sponsor said bill. The secondary title will be, “Shoot to Kill”.

The DOJ is on the case. The general public damn well better not think they have a say in matters related to, “Our Shadow Government”. “We will control all that you see and hear”.

The spineless, feckless Republicans are precisely why Trump garnered such large support. He was the first “politician” that stood up and didn’t back down. He didn’t back down like Republicans when called bad names. Instead, it made him even stronger. People like me wanted someone who would Finally stand up to the left. This conjecture that Trump is so brash and even impolite is using the same tactics of the Left, only against Them. Democrats were shocked, shocked that someone would do to them as they do to others. So, as a response, the Right should double-down and keep using the Trump method of politics. Nice Guys Finish Last. The Right can and will change once the Left ends their politics of personal destruction.

Storming the Capitol, storming the Bastille. Same thing. Hopefully, they will have the same result.
