Election 2020: Insurrection or Not?

 Althouse finds a Sheryl Attkisson tweet: The riot at your doorstep is an insurrection.

Any "riot" is bad. But while traveling across US, I hear some say Congress overreacted like little kings & their experience was far milder than what many went thru in the past yr without the same fervor for hearings, to prosecute, find organizers, etc. What do you think?

Henry Rodgers at Da Caller, Sources: ‘Conversations’ Pelosi Had With Sgt At Arms About National Guard Presence Factored Into ‘Blender Of Decision Making’ That Led Up To Riot. What did Nancy know and when did she know it?

In the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Former Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving recalled to House Admin how previous discussions with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her office factored in to his “blender of decision making,” according to three sources with direct knowledge of Irving’s talk with House Admin.

Pelosi’s office had previously impressed upon Irving that the National Guard was to remain off Capitol Grounds, Irving allegedly told House Admin. The discussions, which centered around “optics,” allegedly occurred in the months prior to the Jan. 6 riot, during a time when deployment of federal resources for civil unrest was unpopular with Democrats and many members of Congress.
PM, Tucker Carlson argues cause of Capitol riot was financial troubles—not white supremacy. Democrats are attempting to force the link that any resistance to any of their goals is due to "white supremacy" from white supremacists. This must be resisted at all times, where ever it appears. Tweet apology. CNN says Trump supporters who breached the Capitol: 'It was not Antifa' How  do they know? Did they know everyone inside? I'm willing to concede that the majority of the invaders were Trump supporters but we know there were at least two leftist agitators, John Sullivan and his girl friend. But muh narratives! 

WSJ wonders If Nice Guys Finish Last, How Could Trump Have Lost? "At the very least, outright nastiness seems to be a strike against a politician." Massive cheating? ¡No Pasar√°n! instructs on How to Reply If You Are Being Badgered by Leftists Insisting that You Accept the 2020 Outcome as Fair'n'Square
About the Tour de France. I fully accept that Lance Armstrong is the winner of the Tour de France (not just once but seven times), and that anybody questioning his victory is a crank, a seditionist, and a conspiracy theorist, as well as a jealous sourpuss.

— The Tour de — wait a minute! Those events have nothing to do with each other!

True, a sports event has little to do with a (with any) nation's election, but the reaction is similar: the politicians and media outlets all over the country were claiming that the election was fair and square the within half a dozen days! They — as well as just about everybody else — did the same for Lance Armstrong's (record seven) victories for a dozen years — yes, exactly 12 years (!) — before we all discovered that fraud was involved.

So tell me: Who made the leftists of 2020 all-knowing? Who made 'em God?

From JTN,  Joe Collins, defeated GOP challenger to Maxine Waters, vows to use ballot harvesting in rematch. As I've noted before, Democrats will only agree to ban it if it bites them in the ass.

"So one thing that I learned from this last election is we should have collected the ballots," Collins said in an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast. "They collected the ballots and turned them in — 'threw [theirs out], turn ours in' — that's the game they play, we should have played the same exact game.
