Trump Reportedly Bullied Pence: You Can Be a Patriot ‘or a Pussy’


Hours before the Capitol riots, President Trump took one last stab at convincing Vice President Mike Pence to try and overturn the election—telling him, “You can either go down in history as a patriot, or you can go down in history as a pussy.” That’s according to a New York Times report with new details about the schism between Pence and Trump. After Pence rebuffed Trump and headed to the Capitol to oversee the Electoral College count, Trump blasted him in the speech that incited a mob to storm the building. The Times reports that after Pence was evacuated to the basement, Trump never called to check on his safety, instead attacking him on Twitter. The newspaper says that five days after the riots, Pence returned to the West Wing and was invited that evening to meet with Trump. “The official description of the hourlong conversation was ‘good’; the unofficial description was ‘nonsubstantive’ and ‘stilted,’” the Times wrote.

Trumps actual net worth is fucking negative my guy. Literally floating on loans coming due this year and crashing other rich peoples functions to appear to have money.
In some ghettos in the south, yes.
He's about to be homeless. He had to re-classify his Mar-a-lago home as a "club" and charge other members fees to be part of it because he couldn't afford the mansion on his own. Because of that, he cannot legally reside there.
Rioters storming Capitol came dangerously close to Pence

(Amanda Voisard/for The Washington Post)
About one minute after the vice president was hustled out of the Senate chamber and into a nearby room, members of the pro-Trump mob arrived at the top of a nearby landing.

Rioters wanted to ‘capture and assassinate’ lawmakers, prosecutors say. Note left by ‘QAnon Shaman’ is evidence.

Amazon notified Parler that it would be cutting off the social network favored by conservatives and extremists from its cloud hosting service Amazon Web Services, according to an email obtained by BuzzFeed News. The suspension, which will go into effect on Sunday just before midnight, means that Parler will be unable to operate and will go offline unless it can find another hosting service.

People on Parler used the social network to stoke fear, spread hate, and coordinate the insurrection at the Capitol building on Wednesday. The app has recently been overrun with death threats, celebrations of violence, and posts encouraging “Patriots” to march on Washington, DC with weapons on January 19, the day before the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

In an email obtained by BuzzFeed News, an AWS Trust and Safety team told Parler Chief Policy Officer Amy Peikoff that the calls for violence propagating across the social network violated its terms of service. Amazon said it was unconvinced that the service’s plan to use volunteers to moderate calls for violence and hate speech would be effective.

“Recently, we’ve seen a steady increase in this violent content on your website, all of which violates our terms," the email reads. "It’s clear that Parler does not have an effective process to comply with the AWS terms of service.”

An Amazon spokesperson declined to comment on the suspension.

In a post on Sunday evening following publication of this story, Parler CEO John Matze, who did not return a request for comment from BuzzFeed News, said it is possible the social network will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch."

"This was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place," he wrote on Parler. "We were too successful too fast."

The desperation is quite a thing to behold.
No, because more modern ways of communication make it really easy to spread misinformation, but really hard to change that misinformation afterwards.

Looks like the FBI gave Parler a new server.

CHAOTIC LIFE Capitol riot Anti-Trump ‘infiltrator’ John Sullivan thrives on chaos & has violent history, feds warn as he’s freed

Henry Holloway

Jan 16 2021, 6:29 ETUpdated: Jan 16 2021, 6:30 ET

AN ANTI-Trump rioter who allegedly infiltrated the Capitol Hill carnage has a history of violence and thrives on chaos, prosecutors warned as he was freed on bail.Left wing activist John Sullivan was arrested after a video revealed he shouted "it's our house" and "we got to get this s**t burned."

Federal prosecutors warned he likes to pose as members of organizations and stir up trouble in a failed bid to lock him up.DC-based prosecutor Bryan N. Reeves issued the warning to a judge in Sullivan's home state of Utah during a Zoom hearing on Friday.Sullivan, a former Olympic speed skater turned liberal activist, was however released to house arrest despite his plea, reports the New York Times.Reeves said: "He thrives on chaos."“The defendant uses messaging apps to set up meetings and set up riots,” he told the judge."He will pose as different members of organizations, even those that have disavowed him."The prosecutor also warned the Sullivan had planned to return to the Capitol on Inauguration Day.Sullivan turned himself in Thursday in Utah on charges of civil disorder after taking part in the riot as Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol.

He is also charged with inciting a riot in Provo, Utah, during a rally which resulted in a motorist being shot after he urged protesters to "block public roadways"

>why make this shit up since its so obvious - and all too real:


SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – A Utah activist is facing charges for his alleged involvement in the deadly U.S. Capitol protest last week.

The Tooele County Sheriff’s Office tells ABC4’s Jason Nguyen that John Sullivan has been booked into their custody under a U.S. Marshall’s warrant.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Sullivan has been charged with entering a restricted building or grounds without authority; civil disorders; and violent entry or disorderly conduct.

The criminal complaint filed against Sullivan lists him as the “leader of an organization called Insurgence USA through which he organizes protests.”

According to Sullivan’s website, Sullivan was in the U.S. Capitol in early January when rioters violently entered the building. A video at the top of his website shows rioters smashing glass on a set of doors that had been barricaded.

As a self-proclaimed video journalist, Sullivan has numerous videos also posted on his Twitter of the violence in the Capitol.

The only ceremonial words that really matter at patriotic rituals are "pass and review". Who even really cares about this sort of thing?
The article does not state that Clyburn wants to replace the national anthem with Lift Every Voice and Sing, but rather that he wants to make that song our national hymn. However, as per the 1st amendment, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion; which, a national hymn clearly would be.
Everyone, including suburban soccer moms, are sick of the GOP's white victimhood whining and bitching. It's one reason why you magats lost the Presidency, Senate and House. If the GOP doesn't evolve with the zeitgeist, they'll never win another national election anywhere but knuckledragging, die hard red states. And even those are slowly changing blue as corporations requiring brains move in and intelligent/educated citizens from Progressive States follow along. Billy Bob might be a good employee in a low paying, no benefits, non-union factory to screw on 4 bolts as the products pass, but he ain't cutting it when brain power is required.

Change your tune, or face the consequences at the polls.

>Poland ends censorship

yeah sure.
Does a social media company censoring Trump, a known authoritarian, who believes violence a legitimate part of the political process, with a stated antipathy toward free speech and a cultish, politically significant following, lead us down the road toward greater censorship and more authoritarianism as a society than if they didn't censor Trump? I don't think so.

For approximately the same reason why I agree with a Muslim travel ban. Even if individual Muslims may be perfectly decent, worthy immigrants, Islam isn't compatible with a free society. Even if they're moderate, abrahamic faiths tend to be hereditary and their children may not remain moderate. Is using government policy to restrict the speech of authoritarians, authoritarian in itself? Maybe. Or maybe it can protect from authoritarianism. Or maybe any regulation around speech is a slippery slope to authoritarianism.

I think these sorts of things are questions for political scientists and philosphers. Cause and effect seem ethereal here.


It would be disastrous for free speech. Social media would have to choose between being flooded with lawsuits for leaving illegal content up, and flooded with lawsuits for removing legal content.

Any time millions of post a day have to be vetted by teams numbering in the hundreds, AI has to be employed and the net that's caste will inevitably miss things that are illegal and catch things that are legal. Social media would be rendered mostly non-viable financially and legacy media would predominate again.

The correct way to regulate social media to facilitate free speech is to have something like the FCC wherein government regulates and monitors moderation policies.

The answer is stronger AI with more authority. Activate Skynet and put an end to moral ambiguity once and for all.


A self-described "hardcore leftist" was arrested Friday for allegedly issuing a call to arms online to recruit like-minded individuals to join him in violently confronting pro-Trump supporters expected to gather at the Florida state Capitol in Tallahassee on Sunday, just days before the presidential inauguration.

Daniel Alan Baker – an alleged Antifa supporter who participated in several anti-police protests last year around the country, including in Seattle’s CHOP/CHAZ zone – was arrested "without incident" by FBI agents early Friday with assistance from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Tallahassee Police Department.

Baker, who prosecutors say was kicked out of the Army and was homeless for several years in the Tallahassee-area before choosing to fight alongside a U.S.-designated terrorist group in Syria, is now charged with violating a federal law that makes it a felony to "transmit in interstate or foreign commerce any communication containing any threat to kidnap any person or any threat to injure the person of another."

He appeared before Magistrate Judge Charles A. Stampelos on Friday and is scheduled to remain at a federal detention center in Tallahassee until his next court appearance scheduled on Jan. 21, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Saturday granted Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey’s request to have the National Guard brought in to help protect the state Capitol. This comes as an FBI internal memo warned of potential armed protests at state Capitol buildings in all 50 states in the days leading up to the inauguration. The Tallahassee City Hall and the Leon County Courthouse will be closed early this week.

more of these fucks are going to be arrested in the next few days, rest assured.

US imposed sanctions on Ukrainians for meddling in presidential elections
Rada deputy Alexander Dubinsky, the former prosecutor in charge of the Burisma case, Konstantin Kulik and Begemot Media were under the sanctions. Some of the defendants in the US list are suspected of having links with deputy Andrei Derkach

The US authorities believe that some of them are associated with the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andriy Derkach, against whom sanctions have already been imposed. Dmitry Kovalchuk, Anton Symonenko and Pyotr Zhuravel have such a mark.

So what specifically did Joe Biden get caught doing wrong? All you people have ever had is the fact that Burisma hired Hunter to attempt to exploit his connections. That's not a problem for Joe or Hunter and you people have never been able to show any actual wrongdoing or crime.

Cope lmao
>(and I have to emphasize this was the entire US government, not just Biden, going after this prosecutor. Biden just had the luck of having a son that could be reasonably targeted).

Don't forget the other European countries that wanted that asshole out. This was a multinational effort against obvious corruption and they keep trying to pretend it was Joe Biden acting on his own to protect his son from imaginary charges.
>sanctions on Ukrainians for almost getting Hillary and Joe arrested for corruption

>Several major Chinese cities have reportedly gone dark as authorities limit power usage, citing a shortage of coal.
>Analysts said prices of the commodity in the country have shot up due to the reported crunch and some tie the shortages and blackouts to the unofficial ban on Australian coal.
>Chinese authorities have not tied the blackouts to tensions with Australia or the coal restrictions. They instead attribute the restrictions on power use to exceptionally high demand and routine maintenance.

SINGAPORE — Several major Chinese cities have reportedly gone dark as authorities limit power usage, citing a shortage of coal.

Analysts said prices of the commodity in the country have shot up due to the reported crunch. The reports also follow rising trade tensions between Beijing and Canberra, leading some analysts to tie the coal shortages and blackouts to the unofficial ban on Australian coal.

Relations between the two nations soured last year after Australia supported an international inquiry into China's handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Coal is just one in a growing list of Australian goods that China is targeting, as a result of their escalating dispute.

Last year, China told its power plants to limit the amount of coal imports from other countries to keep a lid on prices.

Beijing reportedly lifted those restrictions later, but didn't remove curbs on coal imports from Australia. China also reportedly gave state-owned utilities and steel mills verbal notice to stop importing Australian coal.

What are they doing with all of the indigenous venomous plants, reptiles, amphibians, arachnids, and insects, eating them?
Desperate westerncuck propaganda. Just like all the desperate predictions of the Three Gorges Dam collapsing earlier this year. Propaganda news praying for the destruction of China is America’s coping mechanism for their own eventual demise
If that's the case, it doesn't seem to have fixed this coal problem they put themselves in now.
America doesn't want china to fail though(I mean, low-iq types are pissy about it but whatever). china is a cheap labor consortium for us to import goods from. It's like Britain wanting india to fail during colony times.
if China is doing so well why don't they just invade countries instead of being sneaky little shits that have to suck dicks to get anything done?

Senator Chuck Schumer's staffers found out on Thursday that some rioters had defecated in the Capitol, a source says
They are believed to have defecated in one of the bathrooms after breaching the Capitol before 'tracking' their excrement in multiple hallways in the building
Brown footprints were found in parts of the Capitol hallways
The feces left behind was just some of extensive damage caused by the mob when they stormed the Capitol in a violent siege that has left five dead
Harrowing images show shattered windows, graffiti-covered statues and teargas stains lining the walls of the historic building

yeah, i gave up on /ck/ in 2008 or 2009 when it started to become dominated by paid commercial spam and "forced meme" type advertising. reeses' puffs was the first big campaign of that kind of stuff i remember. before that it was a pretty interesting board
how do you boomers get wrapped up so hard in the democrat vs republican thing?
if I was an Indian, the women who either have to shit or have just finished shitting outside would be the last people I would rape.
They'd basically be the safest women in all of India.
Well just from me, obviously the rest of the Indians will still rape them. I'd try to be a good Indian, if I was an Indian but I draw the line at deliberately fucking shit.
Although I suppose I could fit a pressure washer into a rickshaw, which might be more predictable and less of a pain then exclusively raping women who poop indoors in India.
Indian food is damn good though. Maybe not the most hygienic but extremely good.
Thanks. I will continue generally avoiding it.

Poll finds majority back charging Trump for inciting Capitol riot


A Washington Post-ABC News poll found that 54 percent of Americans believe President Trump should be charged with inciting a riot for the mob that stormed the Capitol last week.

A majority of people in the poll believe Trump should be charged, and 56 percent said Trump should be removed from office and not allowed to run again.

However, there was a stark difference between Democrats and Republicans over whether Trump should be allowed to run for the White House again.

News Alert: U.S. coronavirus death toll approaches 400,000 nearly a year after the first case

U.S. coronavirus death toll approaches 400,000 nearly a year after the first case
The nation’s covid-19 death count leaped from 300,000 to almost 400,000 in less than five weeks as hospitals in California and elsewhere were pushed to the brink. The first person in the nation with covid-19 was diagnosed Jan. 20, 2020, in Washington state.

government doesn't sell guns to people like that.
best way to take advantage of those "buy backs" is to make cheap slamfire shotguns out of pipe and wood, vacuum up the buyback cards/money, then offer two of those cards for decent guns from the people who showed up to turn theirs in.

>probably because they are diseased with the mentality that blacks should be given a pass at doing stupid shit because they are "oppressed".
Given that there aren't a lot of left wing gun shop owners, probably more the disease that causes them to assume they are too stupid to reason with.

...or just getting caught up in the excitement of spawning a new fellow gun enthusiast, and forgetting themselves in the process, as so often happens whenever there's a potential new born anything in the room, crying with fear and wonder.
Last thing you want to do with a new customer, is clamp down on his excitement, and the dazzling light of dollar signs do have this nasty habit of making people blind to the personal responsibility they have to others.
