    And, wouldn’t the media’s continuous totting of where was the national guard on Jan 6?, be in conflict of laws prohibiting the use of military personnel against US citizens? Direct violation of The Posse Comitatus Act signed by president Hayes?

    I keep promising myself that I will stop commenting on this site, forgive me.
    Now, Berlin government acts (action) on “controlling costs” on rent, forced takeovers of large conglomerate real estates controlled by foreign capitalists (us), public wide laws established by the state, upheld by the courts (under state control) against profiteering financial forces to protect the people for the “better of the whole”, and only through government decision, participation and force IS this possible, as we are witness.

    Is this not reminiscent of certain “20th century forced government” doctrine?

    Your guests point is also well taken. I said it early that the far right, white support of trump or change as they had hoped for represents the poorest of our “superior” economic system. Those who need social reform and securities most were the first to bite the hand that feeds them, and for them not to see the immediate benefits of Bernie Sanders was a sign of widespread ignorance to the rest of the planet representing the severe lack of education and honorable media in this nation.
    What must also be mentioned here, is the awareness of perpetual manipulation that is working relentlessly from all controlling authorities in a cesspool system of govt. Let us be aware that 2nd amendment rights are still active law and that the attack on the capital will now be used by the opposing parties to condemn such acts and declare them sacrilegious! Aside from the motive for Jan. 6, which I see as one of complete ignorance, we will now be hammered with programming that says no motive “what so ever” can ever again justify such acts against these representative gods (all who reign free of prosecution). Therefore; the intent of the “right to bear arms” is to use them on yourself when democracy is threatened (and or shopping malls and public schools)
