Just imagine what would have happened if they weren't stopped by those damn velvet ropes!

[UPDATE: DOJ Official Admits No 'Direct Evidence' Of Plot to Kidnap And Kill Lawmakers in Capitol Protests]

NPR, "U.S. Says Rioters At Capitol Aimed 'To Capture And Assassinate Elected Officials'":
Members of the pro-Trump mob that staged an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week intended "to capture and assassinate elected officials," federal prosecutors say in a new court filing against Jacob Chansley, also known as the "QAnon Shaman."

Chansley wore horns, face paint and fur as he stood on the Senate dais where he left a threatening note for Vice President Pence, prosecutors say.

"It's only a matter of time, justice is coming," the handwritten note to Pence read, according to the court document. The note was left at the spot where, moments earlier, Pence had been poised to preside over a joint session to certify President-elect Joe Biden's victory over President Trump. Chansley told the FBI he believes Pence is a "child-trafficking traitor."

Chansley told investigators that he didn't mean the message to Pence as a threat.

"The Government strongly disagrees," prosecutors say.

[...] Chansley is charged with two felonies: obstructing the conduct of a law enforcement officer and obstructing an official proceeding. Prosecutors say that as he committed those actions, Chansley was also carrying a dangerous weapon specifically, "a six-foot spear."

[...] It notes Chansley's status as a "shaman" within QAnon, which the prosecutors variously define as "a dangerous extremist group ... founded on an imaginary conspiracy theory," and a cult that "preaches debunked and fictitious anti-government conspiracy theories that a deep state is out to take down the current administration."

Describing the threat they say the defendant poses, the memo says, "Strong evidence, including Chansley's own words and actions at the Capitol, supports that the intent of the Capitol rioters was to capture and assassinate elected officials in the United States Government."
No doubt, just as soon as they got done with all those selfies!
Prosecutors also note that Chansley sought to mislead officials about his drug use. While he allegedly claimed to be a weekly user of marijuana, they note, he has described using peyote and mushrooms in his podcast (on which he uses the name "Jake Angeli"), describing the practice as part of his pursuit of spiritual insights.

There are also mental health concerns, the memorandum says: "Chansley has spoken openly about his belief that he is an alien, a higher being, and he is here on Earth to ascend to another reality."
The case reads like satire, unfortunately it's all too real.
[...] The memorandum says of Chansley:

"He believes that global elites are running the world, that United States leaders are part of a secret rings of child abusers who practice satanic worship, and other debunked theories.

"He has repeatedly demonstrated dramatic, erratic behavior, an inability to conform to societal norms, and an unwillingness to appreciate the consequences of his actions.

"He abides by his own belief system, acts accordingly regardless of the criminal consequences, and brings others along with him.

"His ability and willingness to conform his behavior to pre-trial supervision conditions appears to be virtually nil."
Q-Anon is a psy-op which I spoke out against over a year ago but it must be noted that Dennis Hastert, the former leader of the GOP from 1999 to 2007 who was the longest-serving Republican Speaker of the House in history, was exposed in 2015 and 2016 as a homosexual "serial child molester."

More recently, we had the whole Jeffrey Epstein saga which was made to go away after he "killed himself" in prison.

People are willing to believe crazy Q nonsense because our government and media have thoroughly discredited themselves by constantly lying to the public for political gain.

They spent the last year taking knees for Black Lives Matter rioters and hailing the rioters as "peaceful protesters" whose riots reduced the spread of coronavirus while demonizing and arresting anti-lockdown protesters and small business owners and claiming they're "super-spreaders."

The effort to overcharge these genuinely mostly peaceful protesters as though they're violent insurrectionists is just more of the same self-discrediting nonsense.

Of course, our rulers don't actually care because this is all just about seizing power and suppressing opposition.
