They tried to overthrow the government (which means an attempt to take over the United States of America) and tried to kill the Vice President, the second highest figure in command of the USA.

Why are you defending them?
I am not defending anyone. Simply trying to understand the duplicity of western governments.
in 2014 in Ukraine armed protesters backed by the US and Canadian governments did overthrow the elected government. Did you know that Canadian embassy in Ukraine was giving refuge to those armed protesters? Would it be acceptable of any foreign embassy in the USA to give refuge to people that stormed American parliament ? Thanks

You would have to ask former Conservative PM Stephen Harper about the political considerations at the time.

The embassy opened the door for a person being chased by riot police. He had a Canadian passport.

Apparently others rushed in with him when the embassy opened the door.

Foreign embassies could choose to provide safe haven for a US protestors who stormed the capital.

It is neither here nor there, as they would be arrested as soon as they left the embassy.

Given that each these situations can be rather complex it would probably be best to start your own thread on the Ukraine (or any other country) related issues rather than discuss them in the Washington thread here.

The big tech oligopoly is really going after Parler. Amazon has informed Parler that they are terminating AWS hosting services on Sunday.

Gab gaining 10,000 users per hour, CEO claims, after Trump's permanent Twitter suspension
Unlike Parler, Gab runs on its own servers, meaning a provider like Amazon can’t decide to pull the plug. After being blacklisted by payment processors and email providers, Gab built its own in-house payment and mail infrastructure, as well as its own messaging service, web browser, and video app.
However, the sudden influx of new traffic has slowed Gab to a crawl. Torba wrote on Wednesday that new servers will be added, and that he has already invited Trump to take up residence on Gab.

Sure......but the domain name gab.com is only leased by the user and the US government can seize it any time. They also control the internet infrastructure.

Any talk of violent protests or insurrection and the website will show an FBI logo on a welcome page.

Torba is building a house on land he doesn't own.

Video on social media of some people getting told they are on a "no fly" terrorist list when they tried to return home from Washington DC.

Also videos of some arrests and social media "investigators" tracking down "suspects" by their picture in the Capital.

Interesting development is that much is still to be disclosed.

Some US officials, including in the Congress and Senate are suspected of being involved in planning the riot on the Capital.

If federal prosecutors are able to put together enough evidence that these people were planning to execute top government officials, these people (including Giuliani) are screwed beyond belief. Giuliani told the crowd that they will have "trial by combat".

The makeshift gallows, noose, and man in commando gear carrying handcuffs sure makes it look like they were going to take hostages and planned to kill them. The crowd was also chanting to kill the Vice President. There's plenty of video evidence that the MAGA terrorists were hunting for specific government people.

IMO the US Government has to be extremely strong in showing absolutely zero tolerance for rebellion and insurrection, and throw maximum sentences at all involved.

If others, including Republican party members, continue to push for (non-democratic, illegal) rebellion and government overthrow, they also have to be rounded up and charged as members of the MAGA insurgency.

Have you seen the #noflylist videos? Many of the suspects have been put on no fly lists and are literally getting arrested at airports and on planes waiting on the tarmac.

Armed protests being planned at all 50 state capitols, FBI bulletin says
This is why the insurrection attempt has to be put down hard. That headline is improper, because these aren't "protests". Using guns and bombs, and trying to kill government people, is not a "protest" and never has been. Showing up at political (democratic) institutions with rifles is not a protest.

These are terrorist attacks and attempts to overthrow the US Government. Attacks on state governments already started earlier, at Trump's direction. Remember that he told his supporters to attack the Michigan governor. Eventually they mobilized and were preparing to kidnap (and perhaps kill) her.

The FBI is fully aware that armed right wing extremists are the greatest threat the USA faces, and has been for many years now.

Trump likes to tell people he is a scratch golfer........which he isn't even close.

The USGA should announce his official handicap is 36.4.........the highest there is. :mad:

Is an armed protest really a protest or is it a mob?
Media likes to use catching headlines. Mark my word nothing will happen. All the publicity is about to justify implementing more restrictions and turn the USA into authoritarian country with one governing party (basically large corporations will rule) . That’s all.

I can barely make sense of your post.

Every country has to protect itself from those who fight the state and try to overthrow it. Rebellion, insurrection, whatever you call it ... has to be extinguished. America now will have to protect its democratic form of government against authoritarians like Trump/MAGA.
