Dear #journalists,

Can you please stop calling what happened on January 6th a "riot"? It was an attempted coup. A #putsch, if you prefer. Or coup d'état if you're high-falutin'.

A riot is #chaos, usually #spontaneous, with no particular end-goal except "show them we're #angry".

The January 6 attempted #coup was organized, from the top down, with the express aim of preventing the #lawful transfer of #power.

It wasn't a goddam #riot.

Quando fomos abduzidos para #sc brusque, os nossos algozes, talvez os mesmos covardes, fdp lá fora agora, pressionaram um membro da #family para nos pressionar a comprar um terreno, no nosso NÃO!

Os algozes mandaram, obrigaram ou fizeram o familiar sentir ou fingir dor de cabeça, pressão alta e até febre.

Quando decidimos pela compra do terreno, todas as doenças passaram, ou talvez pararam de o pressionar, a nos pressionar na comprar o terreno.

Eis que no cartório, observei que o valor acertado foi alterado para mais, disse-lhes: "não foi esse o valor que acertamos."

Os ADVENTISTAS da sétima ganância falaram-nos: "não podemos vender pelo valor que ontem acertamos!?"

Então disse-lhes: "muito obrigado pelo seu tempo", e nos retiramos, na rua a esposa falou-me da rapidez com que disse-lhes: "Adeus!"

Voltando para o bairro do Maluche de Brusque, eu e ela, lembramos e mui, muito falamos da sofrência e das maldades que fomos vítimas quando a diretoria do IPAC era ADVENTISTA, assim aquela atipicidade era normal, mas não era normal, EU NÃO!

Em casa, a desgraça da dor de cabeça e a pressão alta voltaram com força, mas 3 dias depois, numa manhã os ADVENTISTAS nos ligaram e falaram que venderiam o terreno pelo valor que havia sido acertado.

Lá nós fomos ao fórum de Brusque, mas os ADVENTISTAS queriam que pagasse o valor acertado, com um valor muito mais maior no documento, EU NÃO!

Para completar, no Bradesco, um caixa e o gerente exigiu-nos saber o objetivo fim do valor!?

Por fim, no verso do recibo, o fdp do caixa do Bradesco, escreveu de caneta vermelha "Kleber/IPAC"

Este era o nome de um dos ADVENTISTAS da diretoria do ipac.

Could Perry related indictment have been handed up. DC Cir unsealed then re-sealed judge Howell's redacted opinion. Rule 6(e) secrecy often ends with the indictment. Free article. Details of Scott Perry’s role in Trump efforts to stay in power unsealed.

The investigation might connect Perry and Clark could link the Koch funding machine to the attempted coup.

The day after Perry’s told Jeffrey Clark would be installed at DoJ , Trump proposed making Clark the acting attorney general as part of an attempt to steal the 2020 election by telling officials in states that went for President Biden that they could instead send fraudulent electors for Trump to Washington. That plan was thwarted because of pushback from top Justice Department officials, who warned of mass resignations if Clark — previously an obscure environmental attorney — was put in charge.

The Chuck Grassley Plot Thickens: An ABC News Bombshell Report Sheds New Light on the One Coup Plot Trump Believed Could Actually WorkThis was the one—the coup plot Trump seems to have thought was the simplest, the most elegant, and the easiest to accomplish. And we now have all the evidence we need to confirm that he was right. This report builds on the Grassley Plot. Until you understand this plot, you don’t understand January 6.

Mike Pence told special counsel Jack Smith’s team that he tried to get someone else to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election because he did not want to upset Donald Trump, according to ABC News.

Pence, who may be called to testify at Trump’s D.C. election crimes trial scheduled to begin in March, told prosecutors that Trump surrounded himself with “crank” lawyers after his election LOSS that espoused “un-American” legal theories & nearly pushed the country into a “constitutional crisis,” via ABC News.

"Republicans like Turner, who betrayed their oath of office and committed sedition, must defend the Jan 6 insurrectionists because they know that they will eventually be implicated because of their complicity. Therefore, the only way that they can be “innocent” is if the Jan 6 insurrectionists are innocent."

The real outrage here is the corporate media giving republicans a platform to gaslight the American public about the insurrection and #Jan6th attack.

Buy bikes this holiday shopping season! Not only are they fun and good exercise, but bicycles may be a critical from of transportation as we resist the next attack from the far-right (perhaps triggered by Trump's conviction or election loss in 2024). Our fuel infrastructure is vulnerable to attack -- whether cyberattacks (like the Colonial pipeline in 2021) or physical attacks. This could be especially bad if the far-right gains control of any territory in the US (they already have control of many large companies, and may decide to cut off supplies to some areas). Bicycles and e-bikes would be incredibly valuable to maintain some mobility within our cities. They have even proven to be useful in military operations outside of cities.

Additionally, the U.S. intelligence community released a report on Russian interference in the 2020 United States elections. According to the declassified DNI report released on March 16, 2021, there was evidence of broad efforts by Russia to shape the election’s outcome.

The report detailed a massive disinformation push that successfully targeted, and was openly embraced, by Trump’s allies. The Russian government meddled in the 2020 election with an influence campaign “denigrating” President Joe Biden and “supporting” Donald Trump.

The chief U.S. intelligence office concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin oversaw sweeping efforts aimed at “denigrating” President Joe Biden’s candidacy ahead of the 2020 election.

The report also mentioned that Russian proxies met with and provided materials to Trump-administration-linked U.S. figures.

Fascism is associated with violence because it views violence as a means to achieve its goals. Violence is seen as a primary characteristic of fascism, and every fascist movement in history has lifted itself to power on the scaffold of violence. Fascism rejects assertions that violence is negative. The republican-fascist aka #maga party is very dangerous.

EXCLUSIVE: ABC News has obtained video from Georgia prosecutors' interview with ex-Trump attorney Jenna Ellis, in which Ellis tells them she was personally informed by a top Trump adviser that Trump was "not going to leave" the White House — despite losing the 2020 election.

Note that this conversation allegedly occurred on Dec. 19 — after the safe harbor deadline to resolve intrastate election disputes and certify their results (Dec. 8) and the date that electors had met to cast their votes (Dec. 14). They knew it was over, they just didn’t care.

Today in Labor History November 10, 1898: White supremacists launched a coup d’etat in Wilmington, North Carolina. The Wilmington Insurrection of 1898 is the only instance of a municipal government being overthrown in U.S. history. The local white press declared it a race riot, caused by blacks, but it was actually a coup by members of the state's Democratic party, who conspired and led a mob of 2,000 white men to overthrow the legitimately elected biracial government. They deported opposition black and white political leaders from the city and may have killed over 300 people. They destroyed black property and businesses, including the only black newspaper in the city. And they got away with it, too. Charles Aycock, one of the main organizers, went on to become governor of North Carolina. Rebecca Felton, a feminist who supported equal pay for women and the lynching of black residents, went on to become the nation’s first female senator. Numerous other coup leaders and supporters went on to hold state and federal offices.

Defendant Donald Trump was indicted in connection with the January 6, 2021 attack. Charges include:
- Conspiracy to defraud the United States
- Conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding
- Obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding
- Conspiracy against rights

These charges are part of a total of 91 charges across four criminal cases, including 44 federal charges and 47 state charges, all of them felonies. The most severe federal counts are those related to obstruction, which is punishable by up to 20 years imprisonment.

The EU has adopted a framework to impose sanctions on the leaders of the military #coup in #Niger. The EU's foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, said the move sent a clear message that there were consequences for those who carried out coups. The European Union has already suspended security cooperation and financial support for Niger since the military takeover in July. The ousted president, Mohamed Bazoum, and his family are being held under house arrest.

Corrupt Bill Barr reached out to get Powell iot get her onto Flynn's case, and solicited that letter as a mechanism to give him cover to wade in and sabotage the plea/cooperation agreement..

The letter may be asked as part of the federal/D.C. case, since the reason Flynn’s charges were dropped and he was pardoned likely has to do with his post-election activities.

1973: #Chile

"When Chile elected #socialist #SalvadorAllende as president in 1970, U.S. President Richard Nixon originally wanted to block him from taking office, or else mount a #coup soon after Allende became president. On Nixon’s orders, the #CIA began supporting different Chilean groups plotting to overthrow the new socialist president. In 1973, military leader #AugustoPinochet staged a coup that ousted Allende. Pinochet assumed his #dictatorship the following year, ruling as Chile’s president until 1990.

"Whether the CIA was directly involved in #Pinochet’s coup is still contested. However, the agency’s support of earlier coup plots contributed to political instability that Pinochet took advantage of to seize power. In a transcribed phone conversation between #Nixon and National Security Advisor #HenryKissinger about Pinochet’s coup, Kissinger complained that the U.S. media wasn’t celebrating the coup, complaining that 'in the Eisenhower period, we would be heroes.'

"'Well, we didn't—as you know—our hand doesn't show on this one,' Nixon responded. Kissinger clarified, 'I mean we helped them…created the conditions as great as possible.'"

"By 1963, the United States had sent thousands of U.S. soldiers to Vietnam to fight the northern communist government led by President #HoChiMinh. The U.S. initially supported Diem because he was fighting the north. However, Diem’s persecution of Buddhists made him an unpopular ruler, leading the Kennedy administration to doubt Diem’s ability to win the war. The coup and Diem’s assassination took place in early November 1963, just a few weeks before Kennedy’s assassination."

"In 1954, the #CIA orchestrated another coup of a democratically elected leader: Guatemalan President Jacobo Árbenz. The CIA #coup, code-named Operation PBSuccess, replaced the president with military dictator Carlos Castillo Armas in the name of stopping the spread of communism. However, the CIA’s main motivation for ousting Árbenz was the fear that his land reforms would threaten the interests of the American-owned #UnitedFruitCompany, which owned 42 percent of the nation’s land and paid no taxes.
High-ranking officials in the Eisenhower administration had close ties to the company: Secretary of State John Foster Dulles had worked for United Fruit’s U.S. law firm, and his brother, CIA director Allen Dulles, sat on its board. The CIA continued toppling Latin American governments; in the first year of the Kennedy administration, it backed an assassination in the Dominican Republic and, under Lyndon B.

"DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — While revealing new details about one of the most famed CIA operations of all times — the spiriting out of six American diplomats who escaped the 1979 U.S. Embassy seizure in Iran — the intelligence agency for the first time has acknowledged something else as well.

"The CIA now officially describes the 1953 coup it backed in Iran that overthrew its prime minister and cemented the rule of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi as #undemocratic.

"Other American officials have made similar remarks in the past, but the CIA’s acknowledgment in a podcast about the agency’s history comes as much of its official history of the coup remains classified 70 years after the putsch. That complicates the public’s understanding of an event that still resonates, as tensions remain high between #Tehran and Washington over the Islamic Republic’s rapidly advancing nuclear program, its aiding of militia groups across the #Mideast and as it cracks down on dissent."

The #Congo-Brazzaville government has denied reports of a #coup attempt against President Denis #Nguesso , who has been in power for 39 years.
It follows unconfirmed social media reports that the military was trying to oust the 79-year old leader, who is currently in New York for the 78th session of the UN General Assembly.

Legal Update: Taken together, the filings are an extraordinary assessment by prosecutors that a former US president poses a unique danger to the justice system, spreading "knowing lies" in ways that stoke threats and actual violence — but continuing to do so anyway

Report: Prosecutors secretly warned a federal judge in April 2023 that if Donald learned of the search warrant for his Twitter account, his public disclosure could "precipitate violence."

"The former President presents a significant risk of tampering with evidence."

Jack Smith argued in April that Donald's "obstructive efforts continue unabated" related to the investigation of his efforts to subvert the 2020 election.

Jack Smith's warning that Donald presents an ongoing threat to obstruct and tamper with witnesses was a key reason Judge Beryl Howell rejected Twitter's bid to disclose the warrant to the criminal defendant and ultimately held Twitter in contempt for dragging it's feet.
