On December 12, 2020, Tarrio indicated on his Parler social media account that he was invited to the Trump White House. 


And what was discussed at the White House three weeks before the  Jan. 6 attempted coup that involved that Proud Boy? 

Has any Republican spoken out against this proto-fascist gang, Proud Boys, the leader of which will now spend 22 years behind bars for committing sedition against the United States?

Tarrio was a guest at the White House?  Why?

  • "Tarrio wasn't at the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot because he was arrested days earlier for vandalizing a Black Lives Matter banner at a historic Black church in D.C. in 2020.
  • However, prosecutors have argued that Tarrio maintained command over Proud Boys members after his arrest and cheered on the group as its members stormed the Capitol.
  • Prosecutors also noted Tarrio took credit for the riot on behalf of the group.

What they're saying: "No organization put more boots on the ground at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, than the Proud Boys, and they were at the forefront of every major breach of the Capitol's defenses, leading the on-the-ground efforts to storm the seat of government," said Matthew Graves, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, in a statement.

  • "The leaders of the Proud Boys and the leaders of the Oath Keepers, who conspired before, during, and after the siege of the Capitol to use force against their own government to prevent the peaceful transfer of power, have now been held accountable."

It's a beautiful thing thing when justice shines and holds accountable those responsible for the mayhem of J6 2020.

May the accountability continue until finally DJT's karma comes home to roost and he is behind bars for his most eregious abuse of power and lies to the American people.

Why? Trump needed security for his event. W/O the Proud Boys, Antifa would have attacked the attendees on the Mall.

RU Antifa loving gimps really that stupid?

Les Carpenter said...

No they are not.

But you, on the other hand may very well be just that.

Shaw Kenawe said...


Can you get hold of your emotions and simmer down? Apparently not.

You claimed that one of my commenters is a Nazi, and you applied that to me as well -- a Nazi because I run my own blog the way I want to, just like AOW ran her blog they way she wanted to and the way Geeez runs her blog the way she wants to. Are they Nazis, too?

And now you insult me again my calling me and my commenters "Antifa loving gimps and asking if we're stupid?"

If someone said that to my face, I'd ask him or her what he or she is suffering from and why he or she is so lonely.

Here's something to think about, -FJ: Not everyone is out to get you.

Dave Dubya said...

Poor -FJ.
"Trump needed security" LOL!!

He only has the best SS protection money can buy. Remember Trump's comment on all the weapons being confiscated from his cult? "They're not here to hurt me".

So full of hate and lies he can't even understand there WAS NO ANTIFA at Trump's rally. Those thugs and neo-Nazis are HIS peers.

Dave Dubya said...

At Ed's blog, -FJ joins the neo-Nazis in calling us every dirty name in the book. Yes their hate defines them as neo-Nazis, as they follow Hitler's playbook in demonizing and scapegoating.

They are utterly incapable of rational discourse and evidence based reasoning. Name calling and false accusations are their only tools in their shed.

Here's a sample of their vicious extremism and racism in a thread under a post that PRAISED Robert E. Lee:

"Sparky": Abraham Lincoln was a tyrant and a lunatic. The crimes he committed while in office would (and does) fill a book. The South has been vilified ever since that creton was in office. Personally, having a statue of him in DC offends me (yeah, I went there) and I want it torn down. He is unworthy of even remembering.

Ed: The question of Lincoln is one I was hoping to have Harry back on to talk about.

As Maya Angelou said, “When they show you who they are, believe them the first time”.

How is Trump a threat to democracy?
And let me say if Biden should win, then we won’t have to worry about a Democracy, we won’t have a Country!

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dear DragonLady,

Biden already won. In 2020. And we still have a democracy, despite what Trump and his thugs tried to do to it.

Mike said...

FJ and DragonLady, 🤦‍♂️.

Dave Dubya said...

Dragon Lady asked the same question at Ed'd blog, where my reply will surely be deleted:

Well, Biden won and Trump was a crybaby sore loser who lied about the election.

And we still have our country with what's left of our democracy, but Republicans are doing their best to dismantle it by gerrymandering Blacks out of fair representation (see Alabama) and promoting Trump's Big Lie.

Here's how Trump is a threat to democracy.

First, he whines that every election he's in is "rigged", even BEFORE IT HAPPENS.

Then there's this, ALL supported by SWORN TESTIMONY by Republicans and Trump staff:
Liz Cheney (R WY):

"On the morning of January 6, President Donald Trump's intention was to remain president of the United States, despite the lawful outcome of the 2020 election and in violation of his Constitutional obligation to relinquish power. President Trump summoned the mob, assembled the mob and lit the flame of this attack."

“To my Republican colleagues I say there will come a day when Donald Trump is gone but your dishonor will remain.”

"President Trump oversaw a sophisticated seven-part plan to overturn the 2020 election and prevent the transition of presidential power.”

1. President Trump engaged in a massive effort to spread false and fraudulent information to the American public claiming the 2020 election was stolen from him.

2. President Trump corruptly planned to replace the Acting Attorney General, so that the Department of Justice would support his fake election claims.

3. President Trump corruptly pressured Vice President Pence to refuse to count certified electoral votes in violation of the US Constitution and the law.

4. President Trump corruptly pressured state election officials, and state legislators, to change election results.

5. President Trump's legal team and other Trump associates instructed Republicans in multiple states to create false electoral slates and transmit those slates to Congress and the National Archives.

6. President Trump summoned and assembled a violent mob in Washington and directed them to march on the US Capitol.

7. As the violence was underway, President Trump ignored multiple pleas for assistance and failed to take immediate action to stop the violence and instruct his supporters to leave the Capitol.

They REALLY hate facts over there.

Is DragonLady FJ's new sock puppet? Or maybe his wife?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Those commenters over at Bonderenka's blog are escapees from "Who's Your Daddy" blog that shut down a month or so ago.

If you read some of the commenters, they seem to be one person with dozens of names. They all read alike and most of the comments appear as so much illiterate encephalopathy.

I'm surprised that the Bonderenka blog allowed the takeover by those trolls, but I suppose as long as they stick to Biden bashing, they can remain.

Bonderenka has some sort of radio program but his mantra about the "stolen election" remains:

BONDERENKA: "It’s Day 993 of the coup, the theft of the American Government, by enemies both foreign and domestic.

There is a war going on for control of America. And you.

This country was founded on the notion of individual liberty and the freedoms given to us by God, or as the Founders put it: The Creator, or Providence.

We have a government in Washington that is going to extraordinary lengths to prosecute anyone it disagrees with or fears. Donald Trump is on that list. The January 6th Patriots are on that list. You are on that list."

Bonderenka fails to notice that he is still free to spread his whacko ideas about the 2020 election, and no one from the government is coming to shut that lunacy down. But rational thinking isn't strong in Trump cultists.

I consider you a brave man for trying to get them back into reality by posting there.

Shaw Kenawe said...


I hadn't thought of that. You may be onto something! LOL!

Dear DragonLady,
Biden already won. In 2020. And we still have a democracy, despite what Trump and his thugs tried to do to it.

WE DO????

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dragon Lady

Yes, we do.

Your right to free speech has not been taken away, you can stand on a street corner and shout "Let's Go Brandon!" and the government won't come to take you away. So please go ahead and ride in your truck with a humongous American flag with "Let's Go Brandon!" imprinted on it. You and a lot of insecure whackos are free to do that.

You and your pals have the right to assemble and protest (this doesn't include arming yourself and marching on the US Capitol building, beating up LEOs, and to interfering with the certification of the electoral counts -- that's a crime). I assume you'd be against this crime as well?

You have the right to worship any god or gods you choose, but you cannot impose your god or gods on other Americans. Has anyone from the government come into your home or place of worship and prevented you from worshipping your god or gods? Please let us know.

You have the right to keep and bear arms, even weapons of war that slaughtered and maim children in their schools (so far). Have your guns been taken away?

Your home cannot be used for the quartering of military personnel by the government in your home. But you already knew that. Right? Has this happened to you lately?

The government cannot REASONABLY search and seize an individual on their private property, unless that individual HAS STOLEN PROPERTY THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO HIM (LIKE TOP SECRET DOCUMENTS), then the government has to provide a warrant for the search and seizure, signed off by a judge. That's serious business, and that's what happened to Trump. So don't steal top secret property from the government, and no one will come with a warrant to search and seize! This hasn't happened to you, I hope. Has it?

People have the right to protect themselves against self-incrimination and they cannot be imprisoned without due process of law (fair procedures and trials.) This is what's happening to Trump, - he's experiencing "due process of law" for the crimes he's been charged with. Also, he took the 5th Amendment dozens of times on the stand. Remember when he stated that only crooks take the 5th? I do. Apparently, Trump didn't remember.

The Sixth Amendment provides additional protections to people accused of crimes, such as the right to a speedy and public trial, trial by an impartial jury in criminal cases, and to be informed of criminal charges. Witnesses must face the accused, and the accused is allowed his or her own witnesses and to be represented by a lawyer. This is happening to Trump and the people who conspired with him to overthrow the US government. Those rights have not been taken away, they are being implemented even as we speak.

The Seventh Amendment extends the right to a jury trial in Federal civil cases. This is happening to Trump and the people who conspired with him to commit sedition against the United States.

The Eighth Amendment bars excessive bail and fines and cruel and unusual punishment. This happened according to the law when Trump was arrested. So this right was NOT taken away.

The Ninth Amendment states that listing specific rights in the Constitution does not mean that people do not have other rights that have not been spelled out. This is an interesting "right," since lots of religious conservative judges and others have banned abortion in because "it's not protected in the Constitution." I think this Amendment disagrees with that.

The Tenth Amendment says that the Federal Government only has those powers delegated in the Constitution. If it isn’t listed, it belongs to the states or to the people.

So there it is. Your rights haven't been taken away. You're just angry that Trump is being held accountable for his crimes.

pShaw's "democracy"...

-FJ the Dangerous and Extreme MAGA Jew said...

ps - "Have your guns been taken away?"

No, just the right to "possess" them, like in Albuquerque.

Shaw Kenawe said...


New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Friday issued an emergency order suspending the right to carry firearms in public across Albuquerque and the surrounding county for at least 30 days in response to a spate of gun violence.

The Democratic governor said she expects legal challenges but was compelled to act because of recent shootings, including the death of an 11-year-old boy outside a minor league baseball stadium this week.

The firearms suspension, classified as an emergency public health order, applies to open and concealed carry in most public places, from city sidewalks to urban recreational parks. The restriction is tied to a threshold for violent crime rates currently only met by the metropolitan Albuquerque. Police and licensed security guards are exempt from the temporary ban.

I and most normal human being agree completely with this.

Shaw Kenawe said...


RFK,Jr., is a conspiracy nut. It is no wonder you'd support him.

He's not a Democrat, he's a puppet disrupter being used by the convicted felons Steve Bannon and Roger Stone and all the other anti-democracy whackos surrounding Donald Trump.

RFK,Jr., was a heroine addict and and suffers from satryiasis. His own family doesn't support his craziness.

Joe Conservative said...

@ Dave Dubya,

FYI- You sparked my interest when you talked about Ed Boderenka's blog. The following comment: -FJ the Dangerous and Extreme MAGA Jew
I agree with you 200. Percent.
Don’t let that Bitch dictate ANYTHING to you. She isn’t worth the sweat on your Brow. Her lousy blog is all BS, and her Obsession with Donald Trump is HILARIOUS, and everyone except 2-3 other Jerks know it.

...was NOT posted by me.

Shaw Kenawe said...


J the Dangerous and Extreme MAGA Jew said...
ps - "Have your guns been taken away?"

No, just the right to "possess" them, like in Albuquerque.

That, of course, is an hysterical exaggeration. People were not dispossessed of their right to own guns.

" emergency order suspending the right to carry firearms in public across Albuquerque and the surrounding county for at least 30 days.

Gun were NOT confiscated. Those who own them can keep them, they just can't open and conceal-carry for 30 days. This is a public health decision. And if I lived in Alburquerque, I'd be thankful that my and my family's safety came before someone's "right" to conceal and open carry.

Joe Conservative said...

Possession and confiscation are two entirely different terms. A refresher for you:

Second Amendment
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

One term, "confiscation", relates to the right to keep arms. The other, "possession", refers to the right to bear arms.

Saying that you satisfied half of the 2nd amendment doesn't mean your compliant with the other half.

Shaw Kenawe said...


It doesn't matter what you or I think. The governor of New Mexico is doing what she believes is the correct thing to do regarding a public health problem.

No one confiscated anyone's guns. No one took their right away from owning guns.

You just like to argue for the sake of argument.

The 2nd Amendment is NOT an unlimited right. Period.

This has nothing to do with Enrique Tarrio and his visit to Trump's WH weeks before the J6 insurrection by Trump's goons in order to stop the certification of the electoral vote.

No more discussion on what's happening in New Mexico.

Dave Dubya said...

2nd Amendment militia nuts think they have the right to keep and bear nuclear missiles.

The real reason for the "militia amendment" was to kill Native Americans and to allow the South to hunt and kill uppity slaves. It wasn't intended as a tool for traitors to kill people they didn't want elected.

Andry’s Rebellion, also known as the German Coast Uprising, was a slave revolt that occurred in the Territory of Louisiana between January 8 and 10, 1811...William C.C. Claiborne, the territorial governor at the time, called out the militia and imposed a curfew.

Joe Conservative said...

lol! A public health problem? Are the guns contagious? Are police officer's with guns affected? Are Security guards part of the public health service? Then it sounds like an unconstitutional bill of attainder to me.

Joe Conservative said...

btw - "shall not be infringed" Sounds kinda like an "unlimited right" to me.

Dave Dubya said...

I bet they'll hate this observation I left over at Cult Central:

Want to see what stupidity looks like?

Trump has his cult convinced the DOJ should be eliminated, because they won't allow Trump to break the law. Every drug cartel agrees with Trump and his cult.

The DEA would no longer interdict and enforce laws against fentanyl. You know, the drug that MAGAts howl about Biden "allowing" into the country. Never mind record amounts of fentanyl have been seized under Biden.

Just more proof that you cannot reason with a cult.

Dave Dubya said...

Joe is quite ignorant to ignore the conditional "well regulated militia" part of the antiquated 2nd Amendment for some reason.

The South wanted militias to capture runaway slaves, and the Western states wanted it to kill Native Americans.

Once the US established a military for the common defense, militias were used almost exclusively for killing minorities. The 2nd Amendment has racist roots, and today's racists are still the most ardent supporters of it.

Sport hunting and self defense/home protection are the only reasons to own firearms. MAGAts think the 2nd is for shooting Blacks, Democrats and politicians they didn't vote for.

Joe Conservative said...

Maybe, Dave, the colonists and writers of the US Constitution in America should have simply surrendered their arms to King George III, and rely upon His majesty's forces for their complete protection. We'd all have UK passports today.

Dave Dubya said...

Joe has a reading retention disability or just ignores what we say.
Remember CONSERVATIVES were the loyalists.
CONSERVATIVES waged a war to protect SLAVERY.
CONSERVATIVES objected to voting rights, civil rights and women's suffrage.
Radical Right CONSERVATIVES push Trump's election Big Lie and deny his crimes.
No wonder he needs to deflect from the radical Right's threats of civil war if they don't win elections.
