    A bloody woman was just just wheeled out of the capital on a stretcher.

    And apparently the Defence department refuses to allow the national guard to respond. I'm guessing on Trumps direct order.

    A CBS commentator condemned one of the protesters for "breaking glass" - that seemed a little under-stated for mine.

    I sure hope to see the same unilateral and solemn condemnation people treated the notable behaviour at the anti-racist protests to.

    Any word from evangelical leaders who supported Trump on whether the occupiers of the chamber are doing God's work?

    Trump is forcing Republican politicians to take a side
    the only position Trump will accept is that they support this protest action

    Trump is tweeting that protestors should support the police, and stay peaceful.

    Pelosi is reportedly asking the National Guard for help.

    Trump has won the day by preventing the electoral process today.

    Appalling suggestion!

    In Portland peaceful protesters were teargassed and kidnapped. But when the Capitol gets infiltrated ... nothing.

    Imagine the same scene, but this time it's BLM.

    White protesters are immune to police control.
