He said he hadn’t seen an FBI field office report that warned of potential violence citing online posts about a “war.”

When a politician admits to incompetence, you can always be sure they are guilty of the more serious offense of deliberate endangerment.

GDTokyo is correct.

Also, here is more info about the airport.

As a sidenote, Maxwell AFB is also located in Montgomery, Ala. It is the U.S. Air Force's premier Air War College and also has a very large foreign exchange training program.

Here is more info on the T-38.

Posted in: Impeachment isn't the final word on Capitol riot for Trump See in context

To answer your question PTwonsend, the FBI knew there would be violence on Jan 6th by the extremists and did in fact, warn all D.C. law enforcement of this fact.

Law enforcement were then directed, at the highest level (by those above them) to only deploy minimal manpower.

This is all documented and easily found on all major news agencies.

And, to put lie to Trump deploying the National Guard, the fact is, he did not. This is also documented and can be found on all major news agencies.

Stochastic terrorism


the public demonization of a person or group resulting in the incitement of a violent act, which is statistically probable but whose specifics cannot be predicted.

It is very real thing. One that Trump was engaging in from the start during his campaign and continued through his time in office.

Posted in: Party over at Clubhouse, the app that had China talking See in context

You should maybe look up the word "dictator." Dictators don't lose elections.

Only if their first coup and insurrection is successful while claiming they didn't lose the election.

China is gonna "China". It's what they do. Now that they are the second largest economy in the world, nobody can stop them. Maybe outsourcing everything to them in the race to bottom for the highest profits to those at the top, wasn't such a great idea. Too late now.

Exactly Yubaru. Even worse, when the stock market is doing good, most people do not benefit, but when the stock market is doing bad, most people get hurt.

Doesn't seem very fair, does it? Of course it isn't.

It's also possible that these after effects are actually side effects from the volley of medications and treatments given to Covid patients.

No. That was taken into account from the beginning.

Posted in: Doctors warn of long-lasting COVID aftereffects among youths See in context

There are long lasting consequences from this virus for anyone who caught it. Something many people have either forgotten or choose to ignore.

This was reported many months ago, although the experts were not sure of the effects on young people. Now they are. There is nothing trivial about this virus. Except to those who deny its danger.
