    Thankfully, his speech got recorded in its entirety. We know what he said. Eyewitness testimony in the 1800s was often speculative
    and subjective. Even with easily several million people watching the rally remotely by a TV or on an internet stream, there is a vast
    range of opinions as to the intent of his words. We spent the 90s legally defining the word "IS" becuz Newt Gingrich had a bright idea.
    Bull$#@!, Trump told them to go to the Capitol and peacefully cheer on the politicians presenting evidence for vote fraud. Don't pretend you listened to the speech.

    I rather like her, but the idea of IMPEACHING her might be a most sore temptation for many in today's GOP if
    poor Senator Grassley was next on the list. PENCE held back from going the distance with the 25th. He clearly
    does not want the job. Congress as a body is almost as riled up as it was in 1867 to 1868.... !974 was quieter.

    Luv... i am open to the idea that a very charismatic person met up with the mob at the upper end of PENN AVE and aimed them
    at the steps precisely becuz Trump had gone home at that point. I am very open to the idea at least 4 to 5 radical groups came
    together and reached the critical mass whereby they became a "mobocracy" mob with a mind of its own. Auld Tory definition of
    vintage 1700s mobocracy. Normally not a 21st Century mind*frame. Trump may only be guilty of being a total idiot, not an agitator.

    "The breaches happened before the speech was even over, by people who were such big "Trump supporters" that they didn't even bother to go listen to him speak down the street.

    That ruined everything, and they didn't get to present the evidence of the vote fraud. It turned into a huge disaster for Trump. Cui bono? (who benefits?)."


    THERE IS ONE ANSWER. ---- Bread and circuses...yes. Mitch McConnell. Who is to now micro-managing Donald Trump's new impeachment trial.
    The Democrats get reality TV done on the cheap, as they try to get legislation thru the U.S Senate, D.C getz turned into a 7 ring circus like 1868.

    Full text of the Riot Act (c. 1714 - 1715)
    Typed in this February 8, 2002 by Jonathan Walther. The source was cap V, volume XIII, pages 142-146 of the "Statutes At Large" series, printed in the year 1764. Also indexed as "Anno primo GEORGEII I. Stat. 2. C. 5." Many sources on the Internet claim the Riot Act was passed in 1715; according to Statutes At Large it was passed in 1714. The confusion may be caused by the fact that the Act took effect in August of 1715. This is, of course, the famous Riot Act that gave rise to the expression Read them the Riot Act!.

    CAP. V.
    An act for preventing tumults and riotous assemblies, and for the more speedy and effectual punishing the rioters.

    I.
    Whereas of late many rebellious riots and tumults have been in divers parts of this kingdom, to the disturbance of the publick peace, and the endangering of his Majesty's person and government, and the same are yet continued and fomented by persons disaffected to his Majesty, presuming so to do, for that the punishments provided by the laws now in being are not adequate to such heinous offences; and by such rioters his Majesty and his administration have been most maliciously and falsly traduced, with an intent to raise divisions, and to alienate the affections of the people from his Majesty therefore for the preventing and suppressing of such riots and tumults, and for the more speedy and effectual punishing the offenders therein; be it enacted by the King's most excellent majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the lords spiritual and temporal and of the commons, in this present parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, That if any persons to the number of twelve or more, being unlawfully, riotously, and tumultuously assembled together, to the disturbance of the publick peace, at any time after the last day of July in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and fifteen, and being required or commanded by any one or more justice or justices of the peace, or by the sheriff of the county, or his under-sheriff, or by the mayor, bailiff or bailiffs, or other head-officer, or justice of the peace of any city or town corporate, where such assembly shall be, by proclamation to be made in the King's name, in the form herin after directed, to disperse themselves, and peaceably to depart to their habitations, or to their lawful business, shall, to the number of twelve or more (notwithstanding such proclamation made) unlawfully, riotously, and tumultuously remain or continue together by the space of one hour after such command or request made by proclamation, that then such continuing together to the number of twelve or more, after such command or request made by proclamation, shall be adjudged felony without benefit of clergy, and the offenders therein shall be adjudged felons, and shall suffer death as in a case of felony without benefit of clergy.

    II.
    And be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid, That the order and form of the proclamation that shall be made by the authority of this act, shall be as hereafter followeth (that is to say) the justice of the peace, or other person authorized by this act to make the said proclamation shall, among the said rioters, or as near to them as he can safely come, with a loud voice command, or cause to be commanded silence to be, while proclamation is making, and after that, shall openly and with loud voice make or cause to be made proclamation in these words, or like in effect:

    Our sovereign Lord the King chargeth and commandeth all persons, being assembled, immediately to disperse themselves, and peaceably to depart to their habitations, or to their lawful business, upon the pains contained in the act made in the first year of King George, for preventing tumults and riotous assemblies. God save the King.

    And every such justice and justices of the peace, sheriff, under-sheriff, mayor, bailiff, and other head-officer aforesaid, within the limits of their respective jurisdictions, are hereby authorized, impowered and required, on notice or knowledge of any such unlawful, riotous and tumultuous assembly, to resort to the place where such unlawful, riotous, and tumultuous assemblies shall be, of persons to the number of twelve or more, and there to make or cause to be made proclamation in manner aforesaid.

    III.
    And be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid, That if such persons so unlawfully, riotously, and tumultuously assembled, or twelve or more of them, after proclamation made in manner aforesaid, shall continue together and not disperse themselves within one hour, That then it shall and may be lawful to and for every justice of the peace, sheriff, or under-sheriff of the county where such assembly shall be, and also to and for every high or petty constable, and other peace-officer within such county, and also to and for every mayor, justice of the peace, sheriff, bailiff, and other head-officer, high or petty constable, and other peace-officer of any city or town corporate where such assembly shall be, and to and for such other person and persons as shall be commanded to be assisting unto any such justice of the peace, sheriff or under-sheriff, mayor, bailiff, or other head-officer aforesaid (who are hereby authorized and impowered to command all his Majesty's subjects of age and ability to be assisting to them therein) to seize and apprehend, and they are hereby required to seize and apprehend such persons so unlawfully, riotously and tumultuously continuing together after proclamation made, as aforesaid, and forthwith to carry the persons so apprehended before one or more of his Majesty's justices of the peace of the county or place where such persons shall be so apprehended, in order to their being proceeded against for such their offences according to law; and that if the persons so unlawfully, riotously and tumultuously assembled, or any of them, shall happen to be killed, maimed or hurt, in the dispersing, seizing or apprehending, or endeavouring to disperse, seize or apprehend them, that then every such justice of the peace, sheriff, under-sheriff, mayor, bailiff, head-officer, high or petty constable, or other peace-officer, and all and singular persons, being aiding and assisting to them, or any of them, shall be free, discharged and indemnified, as well against the King's Majesty, his heirs and successors, as against all and every other person and persons, of, for, or concerning the killing, maiming, or hurting of any such person or persons so unlawfully, riotously and tumultuously assembled, that shall happen to be so killed, maimed or hurt, as aforesaid.

    IV.

    If he did such a thing at all, then it was entirely by accident. Given all of the fight has gone out of him since the events of January 6th, it is clear that he is no warrior intent on bringing the left's evil to task. Self-preservation is very much at the top of his priorities at this time.

    Do you actually read any of Ron Paul's columns or watch any of his videos? Because it's easy to tell, he's worried. Have you read about the upcoming World Economic Forum's plan for The Great Reset? Have you read what RP said about it?

    Really? Trump did more in 4 years to awaken the American people to the sheer corruptness of both so-called sides of our government, the FBI, the CIA, the Justice Dept, etc. than all the libertarian organizations put together for the last 50 years.

    Now, they need to be shown that more freedom and less government is the answer and steps to get them there.

    He gets full credit from me for increasing general awareness of corruption. However, that was not some heroic crusade he waged against the left as was insinuated in the post I responded to. It was a beneficial side-effect of his presidency, and I am thankful for it. At the present time, his fight against the corruption is over due to his need for self-preservation, and it falls to patriots to be absolutely ungovernable pains in the asses that actively subvert the left at every turn.

    Nope..Though socialism has existed here my entire lifetime,,the "progressive" democrats have gone off the rails..

    and over the last 2 years I have gathered with Folks at the Capitol,, Libertarians,Voluntarists,Republicans,,and even had discussion with a Pro-life Democrat that was running.,,and some Trump Fans.
    Huge rallies at the Capitol without Violence,,

    Those folks are not the problem..

    Anarcho-Communists are a problem. repeatedly.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    So, after three pages now, is it safe to say that there is no readily available evidence that suggest or shows or records Trump inciting a riot on 6 Jan?
    We must picture Hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives the deadly serious passions of envy, self-importance, and resentment. - C. S. Lewis

    I definitely don't think that Trump did anything that would meet the standard of inciting a riot in a trial for that crime in a court. If I were on a jury for that case, I'd rule innocent.

    But impeachment of a president and conviction by the Senate are political processes, not juridical ones, so that's not necessarily the question that really matters. I don't think the standard for impeachment and conviction of a president, so as to remove him from holding office (which is only the loss of a privilege and not a right) should be limited to actual crimes with their legal definitions. The Constitution refers to high crimes and misdemeanors, which is a much broader standard of anything unbefitting of the office, whether against a law or not.

    I do agree with Massie that Trump bears some responsibility for what happened on January 6th, both on account of the speech he gave and in other things he said in speeches and tweets leading up to that. I think it's stupid to remove him from office with less than a week to go in his term. But I don't deny that he deserves it.

    The House probably should have used some other charge that didn't already have an accepted legal definition.

    This. 1,000X this. No, the usual suspects showed up with their usual bull$#@!. It was simple question. Much like those that stood and called for impeachment, nothing but demagoguery.

    I will take a stab at it. His comments made while the masses are all fired up at a time you have to worry about whether they would read between the lines with these formerly known as speaking figuratively fighting words. The other candidates comments in the past like McCain were made at a time when people were not fired up over some so serious like a fraudulent election. The supporters figure Trump cannot come out to say what he really wants them to do and is saying it in code so they would take matters into their own hands for their dear leader that had been firing them up all along.

    You had his most fervent supporters/surrogates being fired up on social media before hand. Was this organic or was this being fired up from either side for their own reasons? An entire news media narrative was built around him and by his followers before hand about this possibly ending badly. So was it really as if he did not know they are going to read between the lines with strong language at his rallies?

    Everyone was talking about it before hand what might happen and then you have him which sounds like he was holding back. There was even a segment of vocal Trump supporters that thought through whatever action he would overturn the election through this process. So what really did anyone expect when you think about it.

    not directly. nothing said at the rally. none of the quotes normally would be enough to send total strangers into action in unison.
    which then suggests the rioters were not total strangers to each other. it does look like he provided a way for them to meet up,
    and stood back as they gathered up the resolve to do what they did. i think he could have quieted them all down, or maybe been
    honest with them. as it stands now, they could have been talked to, and the situation might have been defused. i think he knew
    what they possibly might do, but he let them do it. he didn't talk them out of it. he let the situation fester. he vented, they took
    everything literally, and felt he was backing them up to the 100 percentile. he wasn't. he simply played games with their emotions.

    Most legal scholars agree with that position. https://apnews.com/article/a4ac94cbd...dce82d0f60d0a4
    We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."
