American Insurrection Editorial – January 6, 2021

(TrueNewsBlog) January 5, 2021, will be remembered as the day of infamy when the United States President encouraged his supporters to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power. The world watched in disbelief as protesters take over Capitol Hill, and Congress members had to run for cover.
Donald Trump said he would never agree to a peaceful transfer of power. Those who cajoled, supported, and encouraged him over the last four years are as guilty as the people who violently invaded the Capitol and disrupted the process. This was an affront to the United States Constitution and the world, who believe America is the beacon of freedom.
America has lost its place in the world as a law and order nation. It has lost its moral fortitude and the ability to advise or dictate to other countries how to conduct peaceful elections and a peaceful transfer of power.
Donald Trump has committed treason, and I wonder whether he is an agent provocateur of a foreign enemy.
DONALD TRUMP did little to calm things down in a video message shared online late Wednesday afternoon. While encouraging the rioters to “go home,” he told them “we love you” and reiterated without evidence that the election was stolen.
The melee put a stop to the Electoral College certification process. Hours later, when the mob was forced to leave, members of Congress came back under heavily armed security and resumed the certification process.
As I sit at my desk writing this, a chill went through my spine, the country that has given so much to so many has been brought to its knees. All of this caused by a man who too many of us failed to realize the extent of his tyranical rage. Donald Trump must be impeached now and charged with treason.
President-Elect Biden has promised to unify the country. Today’s unprecedented scenes of looting and rioting at the Capitol, shortly after Republican lawmakers formally challenged the election results, reinforce how deeply divided it is.
Biden condemned the mob’s actions while also being the voice of calm that Trump was not. “It borders on sedition, and it must end now,” he said in remarks that were originally supposed to be about the economy.
But he also suggested the riots were the work of a “small number of extremists dedicated to lawlessness,” seeming to draw a line between the violence and the broader push among a chunk of the Republican party to invalidate his election.
“The work of the moment and the work of the next four years must be the restoration of democracy, of decency, honor, respect, the rule of law. Just plain simple decency,” he said. This country needs to heal, and it will take time and effort to piece America back together.
