    To whom? To whom does such a trivial difference matter in this context? Maybe in the histories that will be written of this day, but please explain how the difference is of rational importance at the moment?

    Trump has called out the Guard. Guess he is part of the deep state conspiracy!

    Confederate battle flags have reached the inside of the capitol. Something that didn't happen in the Civil War.

    The American Capitol building is being occupied by armed, violent people trying to shut down a function of the Government key to insuring an orderly transfer of power. But you're right. The issue of the day is whether or not we can properly pin down the precise politics of one of the organizations involved.

    Jeewiz!!! I have never seen scenes like this in years of watching American politics from a distance.

    Storming the capitol building, capital police being overwhelmed, busting into the senate chambers, disorderly violence....

    Democracy is under assault at the heart of the Republic.

    And that says it all. At this moment, not his friends nor his WH staffers can reach him -- he's not taking calls. He is the acting leader of this very real coup attempt, and only he can stop it by getting on television right now and telling everybody to stand down.

    He wil not -- and this time, I say it with real sorrow. Donald Trump is now a traitor and must be treated as one

    Sure was an astonishingly wise move to acquit him in his impeachment trial. That's worked out so well.

    And why do they believe the election was stolen? Because they were told that by their leader and his enablers -- lied to continuously for months for precisely this purpose.

    Donald Trump is a traitor. Proceed accordingly.

    But haven't you heard? He's called out the National Guard, thus proving he is wholly innocent of any wrong-doing or complicity in what has been going on.

    I've given @polymath permission to use the word, "traitor".
    You may too...just don't over-use it. Others may want to.

    It continually strikes me how people are this zealously committed to Trump. Donald Trump.

    Crazy stuff.

    I'm shocked how easy, apparently, it was for this mob to overwhelm security by "raiding" and pillaging the capitol building - the "citadel of liberty" - in the country. I mean, it's a de facto siege.

    How on earth could this have happened?

    They're shutting down congressional activity, an arm of government and roaming around at will! Pipe-bombs, threats outside Nancy Pelosi's office!

    It's tantamount - in effective political terms - to what desecrating a sacred place, like St. Peters Basilica, would be in a religious context.

    If the capital police had not exercised such consummate restraint, though, a veritable bloodbath might have ensued.

    A powerful speech from Joe Biden, I must add.

    Listen to how he starts telling people to go home --- by doubling down on the lie, that the election was stolen even though he won in a landslide.

    At least these muppets think they're responding to election fraud. In the UK we always seem to be about 15 minutes from a violent insurgency by middle-aged Daily Mail readers foaming and furious about straight bananas.
