They've breached the Capitol, buildings being evacuated

So this is how the coup proceeds? Disrupt the normal constitutional process, which they know they can't win legitimately.

Confederacy of dunces.

And that doesn't mean southerners.

From WaPo:

Part of the playlist Wednesday included the usual, if baffling, songs played before Trump rallies — Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortunate Son,” the Village People’s “Macho Man.”

But as Trump supporters waited for the next speaker at the “Save America March” on the Ellipse, the playlist grew stranger, prompting many comments of confusion on Twitter.

Pink Floyd’s “Brain Damage,” Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” Elton John’s decidedly uncheery hits “Funeral for a Friend,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and “Candle in the Wind,” and even Phil Collins’s “In the Air Tonight” — an intense song about divorce that many mistakenly think is about murder.

As Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” the theme song to the film “Titanic,” played, even Fox News’s Steve Doocy commented on the choice, saying, with eyebrows furrowed, “Isn’t that interesting?”

Oh that Doocy. Can’t put anything past him!

There are reports they are inside the building and actually outside the doors of the senate chamber. It’s unknown if any are armed.

Police/security are remarkably passive compared to other situations. Reporters are hearing what they are describing as flashbangs and gunshots.

Watching the live reminds me of the Russian coup attempt in 1991 that I watched live on TV.

NEVER thought I'd see this in the USA.

Security is beginning to react, tear gas is being deployed, perimeters set, etc. But the situation is still much less than contained. Several unknown packages are being investigated, there have been bomb threats, the certification has been halted.

Trump is tweeting, but doing nothing to halt the situation. He’s criticizing Pence for not trying to disrupt the certification.



Protesters have been streaming into the building by the dozens, if not hundreds. Many with backpacks, etc., all, of course, unsearched by any security.

It's hard to believe that anyone would've ever thought that this could happen in the USA. Dumbf has almost succeeded in whatever base act of sedition that he envisioned. Hope the mayor calls in the National Guard and these lawless a-holes start getting what they deserve.

Law and order. Right.

Lisa Dejarden (pbs reporter) along with congress people (wearing gas masks) are being evacuated from the building (or to a basement??) - seems that police are taking charge now.

The DC weather forecast is for the overnight temperature to be at about freezing. Not cold enough to get rid of the dummies.

They have called for a 6pm curfew however, so there is precedent to make people leave:

Today,
@MayorBowser
ordered a citywide curfew for the District of Columbia from 6pm on Wednesday, January 6, until 6am on Thursday, January 7.

Well, the election is not gonna be certified today. As has been reported many times, Trump considers every day a battle to be won - worry about tomorrow tomorrow.

Trump wins the day.

And yes, Dump incited a riot -- he should be arrested forthwith, on those grounds.
