      One of the most notorious defendants charged in the Jan. 6 riot by Trump supporters thought that he and other rioters had invaded the White House that day and not the U.S. Capitol, newly released video reveals.
      “This is me, touching the f—— White House,” bragged Douglas Austin Jensen as he was stood on the Capitol grounds, according to a selfie video from his own cellphone that day, during which he also chased a police officer while leading a pack of rioters.

      “This is why we’re here.”

      “I am at the White House, just so you know,” Jensen said after capturing on video other members of the mob gathered outside the Capitol building.

      Jensen’s lack of awareness about where he actually was played a role in the decision Tuesday by Washington federal court Judge Timothy Kelly to release Jensen after six months in jail into home confinement in Iowa.

      Judge Kelly reportedly said during a court hearing that Jensen does not seem as someone who could have planned the attack since he seemed to have “no basic understanding of where he even was that day.”

      Jensen, 41, was not the only supporter of then-President Donald Trump who was ignorant of the names of Washington landmarks as they swarmed outside and inside the Capitol and disrupted the confirmation by a joint session of Congress of the election of Joe Biden as president.

      “Storm the White House, that’s what we do,” said someone else on video taken by Jensen, a resident of Des Moines.

      But the third video from Jensen’s phone released in Washington federal court shows that many people in the mob knew which country they were in, as they chanted “USA, USA!”

      I hate it when people call it an “insurrection” as if they don’t really know what the word means, or that it’s interchangeable with “riot”. I have friends who are more intelligent than me who say it was an insurrection, and I know they know better. I suspect they use it wrong on purpose, as if Trump has the brains or attention span to plan anything insidious like a real insurrection. He only wanted to rile up his base, and they were all stupid enough to do as they were told.

      Now, if Cheney or Rumsfeld had done that, I would call it an insurrection, because I would know they would have planned it all out months or ever years in advance.

        Because they let 5 Bush Crime Family appointees in black robes do the dirty work, rather than a bunch of dim bulbs storming the castle. Millions of people barely noticed, and most of them probably actually believed it was legal for the Supreme Court to throw out an election.

        The only reason the Confederates didn’t have a chance to destroy Washington was because the Federals made damned sure DC was fortified in accordance with the best military defensive doctrine of the time, which was so damned good that Robert E. Lee never attacked Washington directly.

        But he seriously considered it, and the government of the time recognized the threat and acted on it.

        There’s simply no comparison between the 1/6/21 rioters, who consisted mostly very confused people who didn’t even understand what was going on after they got into the Capitol and figured they’d play tourist while they were there in classic American fashion, and the Confederates and the very real insurrectionists that they were.

        For that matter, the gross incompetence or complicity of our current federal government and the 1/6/21 riot makes the Lincoln Administration look really competent.

      And these revolutionaries were the guys that were so close to taking over the American government!

      All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

      How else could they stop the Electoral College vote?  They knew who and what was going on in the Capitol building. They couldn’t stop the vote from the White House, when Congress was in session, in the Capitol, voting. I smell some major spin here.

        There was never any danger they could actually prevent it. And the cure proposed by Biden and the Democrats is worse than the disease. Do you really want the government monitoring and censoring your text messages? I don’t, but that’s exactly what those Fascists want to do.

      tell you how many branches of government we have, let alone name them!  I argued with one the other day when he was blaming Biden for the high inflation.  I ended up saying I wish you would make up your mind, one minute Biden is a socialist and now you are calling him a predatory capitalist wanting more profits.
