Securing the US Capitol

After the attack on the Capitol, efforts are underway to secure it for congress and for the Inauguration of Joe Biden. 1000s of Nation Guard members along with The Capitol and DC police have been called to provide security.  Fencing have be put up around the Capitol and the national Mall.  The National Mall wall will be closed so no one will be allowed there for the inauguration.

The FBI is reviewing video, photos, and social media to track down people that participated at the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan 6, 2021.  They claim to have received lots of tips that will help them find the perpetrators.  Alerts have gone out to secure all 50 state capitols because of alleged planned attacks on them.  

Trump recently gave a speech saying that people that do violence and vandalism are not his followers.  He basically called for calm during the speech.  He did not apologize for the remarks he made at the January 6th rally which incited the insurrection.

Who Is to Blame For the Insurrection of 2021

  Who is responsible for the insurrection at the US Capitol?  Many blame Trump who spoke at a rally on January 6th.  There was a "call" for people to come from all over the country.  At the rally Trump again and again told his followers to fight and to march down to the Capitol and seek justice for the election that was "being stolen" from him. People are responsible for their own actions but did Trump incite a riot?  Yes he did.  He has been spewing false claims since the November Election in which Biden won.  Trump has stated that the election has been stolen and their was widespread fraud.  He said the only way he would lose is if the election was stolen. CNN has shown the footage again and again that Rudy Giuliani said there has to be "Trial by Combat".  There was a senator who I can't remeber his name said at the rally, "It's time to start taking names and kicking ass."    There were congressmen and women that objected to ratifying t

Black Lives Matter has come into its own

A few years back when the Black Lives Matter movement came about during the Trayvon shooting, and Fergueson and etc I don't think it was embraced as it is now.  I think White America felt hesitant to embrace it because I think they felt "left out" or excluded in the protests somehow.  You would hear the phrase All Lives Matter.  Hillary Clinton used it during one of the debates. Eric Garner died uttering the phrase, "I can't breathe."  When the officer had a choke hold on him for selling loosies (individual cigarettes).  This was definitely a case of excessive force Fast forward to now with George Floyd died saying I can't breathe when a White officer pressed his knee into Floyd's neck for eight minutes.  That awoke everyone, well almost.  This case went world wide even during a pandemic.  People of all colors risked their lives protesting.  Those Black Lives Matter signs were everywhere as well as "I can't breathe."  Even in Europe.

First Pitch by Dr. Fauci - Yankees vs Nationals tonight on ESPN at 7pm EST

Dr. Fauci one of America's leading doctors concerning an infectious disease Covid-19, is throwing the first pitch in tonight's MLB game: The New York Yankees vs. The Washington Nationals in Washington DC.  A lot of people have been talking about this and how it will go over since it will be played with no fans. Today is opening day and we will see. No slight to Dr. Fauci, but I wonder with the protests and Black Lives Matter would major league baseball ever let one of their founders throw out the pitch or someone like Derrick Johnson president of the NAACP?  Has Jesse Jackson ever thrown out a first pitch?  Just curious.  I did some research and the answer is yes.  Jesse Jackson threw out the first pitch on April 6, 2013 between the Chicago Cubs vs. Texas Rangers.  Rep. John Lewis who recently passed away threw it at Washington Nationals game back in April 2018. I caught the first pitch and Dr. Fauci threw it to the far right of the catcher.  No biggie we know why he was there
