This has been eye-opening to me, and I've been following this. The testimony of the officers has just started, and is stunning. The opening video presentation was horrific.

As we hear the powerful stories from officers on Jan 6 can't help but think of the entire USCP force, including those that lost their lives as a result of that day.

As you walk around the Capitol today officers are glued to the hearing, watching their colleagues testify.

D.C. officer: "It was clear the terrorists perceived themselves to be Christians"
www.axios.com

..."The sea of people was punctuated by flags. Mostly varieties of American flags and Trump flags. There was Gadsden flags.

It was clear the terrorists perceived themselves to be Christians. I saw the Christian flag directly to my front and another had 'Jesus is my savor, Trump is my president.' Another, 'Jesus is king,'" [D.C. Metropolitan Police officer Daniel] Hodges said.

"To my perpetual confusion, I saw the thin blue line flag, a symbol of support for law enforcement, more than once being carried by the terrorists as they ignored our commands and continued to assault us," he continued.

Hodges detailed how rioters identifying as veterans said they had "fought for this country and were fighting for it again."

Others demanded that law enforcement refrain from attacking them because they "were not Black Lives Matter ... as if political affiliation is how we determine when to use force," Hodges noted....

The entire idea that it was a love fest or it simply got out of control is just plain --------.

The attackers were wearing shirts that said "Civil War January 6, 2021".

Who brings a gallows to a love fest?

The GQP wants to sweep this under the rug because they are at the heart of this.

People had bear spray, guns, molatov cocktails, pepper spray, spears disguised as American flag poles.

Some of the Qidiots got swept up into it, but a good many of them planned and executed the attack. Roger Stone is somewhere in the planning of this 100%. It was funded by GQP political operatives.

Trump and Rudy Colludy knew what was going to happen. Some of the GQP senators and house members knew it was going to happen. They gave tours to the attackers the day before. Trump was delighted when he saw the Capitol breached and the certification stopped. He could not understand why people were upset over it. The response by the National Guard was delayed by the administration for hours. His fat greasy orange hand prints are all over it. It took him hours to tell the attackers to stop and even then he told them they were very special to him and he loved them.

...Sergeant Aquilino Gonell on Tuesday shared an emotional testimony for the first of the Jan. 6 committee hearings, detailing the events of the Capitol insurrection.

Gonell, an Army veteran who served in Iraq, said he was "more afraid to work at the Capitol" on Jan. 6 "than in my entire deployment."

"[N]othing in my experience in the Army or as a law enforcement officer prepared me for what we confronted on Jan. 6," Gonell said.

"The verbal assaults and disrespect we endure from the riots were bad enough.

I was falsely accused of betraying my oath, of trusting my paycheck, choosing my paycheck over my loyalty to the U.S. Constitution. Even as I defended the very democratic process that protected everyone in the hostile crowd," he added.

"The rioters called me traitor, a disgrace, and shouted that I, an Army veteran and a police officer, should be executed."

"[T]he physical violence we experienced was horrific and devastating. My fellow officers and I were punched, kicked, shoved, sprayed with chemical irritants and even blinded with eye-damaging lasers by a violent mob apparently who saw us, law enforcement, officers dedicated to ironically protecting them as U.S. Citizens, as an impediment to their attempt of insurrection."...

"There was an attack on Jan. 6, and a hitman sent them. I want you to get to the bottom of that." - Officer Harry Dunn

"As patrol officers, we can only deal with the crimes that happen on the streets, the misdemeanors and occasionally the violent felonies, but you guys are the only ones we've got to deal with crimes that occur above us. I need you guys to address if anyone in power had a role in this." - Officer Daniel Hodges

"The time, the place, and the circumstances of that rally, that rhetoric, and those events to me leads in the direction of our president and other members" (referring to Congress members) - Officer Michael Fanone

Remember that Congressional Republicans were nearly unanimous in their view that Congress should not investigate this. They didn't want to you to hear first hand from these cops who came under attack that day. Now that the cops have been given a voice it is pretty clear why the GOP didn't want to hear from them. They are pointing the finger directly at the President and other members of the GOP.

"The fact that so many members of our leadership and others, the fact they've gone from recognizing what happened on the 6th to protesting in front of the Justice Department, on behalf of those who were part of the insurrection is something that I can't explain. I think it's a disgrace. This is not a political campaign. This is deadly serious, and we'll investigate every aspect." Rep Liz Cheney (R)

"All I have to say to that is we had a big attack on Jan. 6. We heard emotional testimony today, and that's what's on the forefront of my mind, and if people want to get petty, that's fine. I think that reflects more on people than it does on the situation at hand. This is a historic moment, and this is a democracy defending moment. And no matter the consequences, me, and I know Liz will stand and defend democracy," Rep Adam Kinzinger (R)

Every republican who tried to block this investigation needs to explain why Cheney and Kinzinger are wrong.

They can provide criminal referrals to the justice department. They can seek to censure or expel members of Congress who are found to have participated. They can work to give the DOJ more power and resources to prosecute anyone involved. They can introduce bills in Congress to make this sort of thing more difficult in the future. The findings from this investigation should help shape the legislative agenda for this congress.

Too little, too late. It is fine that this is being recorded for posterity, but nothing that is being said is not already well documented in the record.

And will change no minds.

This should have been done every day since February, not during the summer when people are too busy vacationing to pay attention.

They should have called ------- and every republican who supported -------'s lies to account. They should have had every member of congress who have supported -------'s lies go under oath and either defend or reject those lies.

I suppose it is better than nothing, but until ------- is forced to sit in front of the committee for hours on end, and McCarthy and Taylor Greene and the rest, it is pointless.

They also believe that the means justifies the end ~ no matter how much violence it takes. It was Trump's last defense against losing an election. Somehow he thought that if Biden wasn't officially confirmed that he, Trump, could buy some time to contest the election ~~ or at least order devastating riots all across the country so he could declare Martial Law before January 20 and order a new election while he was still president.

The man obviously never laid eyes on the Constitution but that's the kind of marbles that were rattling around in his head leading up to January 6th.

I hope this House Select Committee subpoenas Pence. He knows the whole truth.

Because they stopped them long enough for everyone to be rescued and saved our

They held the line.

What a story!! A day that will live in infamy.

And this is only the first day of testimony.

They literally saved our democracy. They should be granted the highest respect this country can offer.

SO I can follow it on the thread, too.

(OK, yes, I'm stoned. These Delta 8 gummies werk!)

Careful corky!

If you watch it too stoned you will cry your heart out. It will be like an emotional roller coaster. I am speaking from personal experience here!

I think it is the most riveting testimony I have ever witnessed.

The videos of the tunnels filled with gas and battling Americans were surreal.

The testimony was devastating to the Criminal Circus Right.

One can only hope some of this sticks in the minds of tweeners.

Tweeners, yes maybe. But the hard core, probably not. The only thing that will shock his followers to the core is if their ringleader reaches the end of his rope and decides the only way out is to take a dirt nap.

Or somebody else does it for him.

Look at how lathered the loony left is getting. Panty dropper thread alert.
-Bellringer

If by 'lathered', you mean justifiably outraged, or angered at the
lengths the officers have to go to, just to get the word out to
Numbskull Americans (like yourself) that they 'actually were attacked'
and that this, 'actually did represent an act of terrorism', then
considered me lathered!

'Americans' like you are nothing but traitors.
Might as well where an SS patch on your shoulder...

A review of the police reports related to the arrests show that police seized at least 3,071 rounds of ammunition during their arrests of insurrectionists " enough ammunition to shoot every member of the House and Senate five times. https://t.co/fKIAbU4lnH https://t.co/ICUfPukNs8" igorvolsky (@igorvolsky) July 28, 2021

If the riot had continued, the Merican Democracy could have ended. Many Republicans believe the election was stolen. Many Congressmen and Senators are pushing the Big Lie. This game is only paused. When the Republicans Lose another election they will be convinced it was stolen again and they don't have a voice. If Democrats become apathetic, the Republicans will be reelected. The Republicans have no boundaries. I don't believe Merica will survive in it's present form with a return of Republicans. Their intent is to retain power, not govern. A bitter divorce is happening and a house divided will not stand.
