President Joe Biden compared the January 6th Capitol riot to an ‘attempted coup’ while giving remarks on a proposed voting rights bill in Atlanta.

As The Hill reports:

“The violent mob of January 6, 2021, empowered and encouraged by a defeated former president, sought to win through violence what he had lost at the ballot box,” Biden said during a speech in Atlanta pushing for the passage of voting rights legislation. “To impose the will of the mob, to overturn free and fair election, and for the first time, the first time in American history, to stop the peaceful transfer of power. They failed, they failed, but democracy’s victory was not certain nor is democracy’s future.”

“That’s why we’re here today: to stand against the forces in America that value power over principle, forces that attempted a coup, a coup against the legally expressed will of the American people by sowing doubt, inventing charges of fraud and seeking to steal the 2020 election from the people,” he continued. “They want chaos to reign. We want the people to rule.”

The speech came on the heels of Biden’s forceful address marking the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 attack last week. Tuesday’s speech appears to be the first instance of the president using the word “coup” to describe the attack, which he called an “armed insurrection” last week.

Biden remarks come as he is trying to convince members of the House and Senate to pass a radical new ‘voting rights’ act to try and prevent GOP run states from passing laws to force voters to show identification before voting.

Of course he would say that, they weaseled their way into the office by the culmination of their devious ways, and COVID with the illegal voting practices. They are threated now, people have awakened from all of this and see just where all their policies, practices and lies, upon lies are going. People need to take back their power.

There is no license on how people of the catholic faith vote or support idiocy. THis is how they are wired they ARE VERY LIBERAL that is how they support all this garbage it really has nothing to do with religious belief inspite of what they may say. Everyone that is like this thinks Jesus Christ was a liberal no he wasn’t he just did the right things and took care of things. I am very Catholic and I donot agree with smiley miley what an idiot for a career Military General at COmmand level. He is pandering for a job s/p retirement. the other Pelosi etc it is about power and votes nothing else. Who know what they really believe in her case She was raised in the days of the powerful Mafia and so therefore she has a strong Mafia Philosophy Congtrol and POWER.the other are much the same FJB is just a total dummy and has never in his career or life made a right decision. Just read Roberts Gates book he will lay it our for you.

I’m Catholic, but also a conservative Republican, what does religion have to do with it?

Nothing at all! More people have died in the name of Religion, this is a proven fact, of human history! But as always, some people just swing out, by-standers usually get the brunt of the flack! I myself don’t believe in religion, no matter what form it is wrapped up, I have three bishops as life long friends, they tell me I’m the nicest person they have ever met, but the only problem they see with me, is the fact I will always stand my ground and saying I’m always right until someone can prove wrong! I’ve noticed with life people don’t lake the facts that’s placed in front of them!

Paul – this guy Alf has been on a Catholic ax-grinding mission for a LONG time. Just ignore him – not worth trying to argue . . . . many have already tried and without success (obviously).

The main fact a lot of people are missing in the USA, that being every single service man/woman, have families of their own! There’s no way, they are going to step to one side, letting their own grown reds under their beds, taking control of the USA, there’s all the veterans out there, that give their services to the country they love, they won’t stand bye and let it happen, more personal weapons out there to feed five armies, the Democrats are well aware of this fact, that’s why Biden made the comment, they don’t have nukes, if this hasn’t frightened the masses I don’t know what will, these four words he spoke, say a thousand things of his intentions!

No wonder they put up a fence with barbed wire and soldiers to protect the Capitol AFTERWARDS. They thought people would react poorly to THEIR COUP. But that’s ok. We are on to them and are even beginning to ask questions like how many times before 2020 did they get away with these election “irregularities”.

The coup is the current administration who cheated in the election and was installed not elected, and still cheating by changing voting laws to make this a communist country against the will of the people

Oh Mutzika, just as Emperor Hirohito said after attacking Pearl Harbor, same holds true for today, if you go against the American people when we now know the truth. You have awakened a sleeping giant! Their power grab (The Elite) will be futile in the end!

Doing research on the “Allison Journal” points toward your being right. Allison is the daughter of Sleepy Joe and Jill. She wrote the journal as part of her recent drug addiction treatment. A group got the journal and released select pages. The FBI confiscated it no more to be seen.

If Trump gets back in office, I sure as heck hopes he gives Michael Flynn a VERY POWERFUL ROLE in his administration – one that can gut all the garbage out of the FBI and set new rules so that ANYONE who does what Comey or McCabe did end up immediately tried and hanged for their actions.
