I believe this scene from the final Hunger Games movie sums up the Capitol Hill Riot

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 (8/10) Movie CLIP – These Things Happen in War (2015) HD – YouTube

It was obvious to me as I watched it unfold live on TV that there was a lot that was not right about the rioting that took place at the US Capitol on January 6th.  The nature of the US Capitol violence seemed so contrived and it seemed that is was so divorced from the massive peaceful protest that bore all of hallmarks of a true MAGA protest. 

The nature of the violence and the nature the more colorful characters on video leading the way and committing most of the violence seemed much more appropriate for an ANTIFA or a Black Lives Matters riot than a MAGA rally.

It made no sense that such a small group would break away from the rest and storm what was supposed to be one of the most secure buildings in the country.  It made no sense that the US Capitol Building could be so easily stormed period yet alone from such a small group. Nothing made sense until I started seeing the following articles indicating that the whole incident was a setup. 

Worrisome Signs the Capitol Breach was Planned to Discredit Trump Supporters: An Eyewitness Account – American Thinker

Based on what I saw and read, I have no doubt that dozens and possibly even hundreds of Antifa and/or other provocateurs had infiltrated the rally in order to carry out violent acts and suck impressionable Trump supporters into their antics. None of this violence was justified, but contrast the frustration and conflicted attitude of this Capitol building trespasser with that of the proud of this BLM rioter. One calls for prayer while the other calls for “reparations.”

Some of the more impulsive Trump supporters fell into a trap that served to scapegoat both the Trump administration and the 99.9% of rally participants who neither condoned nor participated in any of the violence.

Were leftist provocateurs leading the way into the Capitol? – American Thinker

First, to state the obvious, there is no question that Trump-supporters criminally entered the Capitol and behaved abominably.  All who breached the inadequate protective perimeter must be prosecuted to the full measure of the law.  Throw the book at them!

But there are grounds for suspicion that provocateurs, anxious to discredit Trump, his supporters, conservatives, and those who question the integrity of the presidential vote may have been the point of the spear in violently attacking the Capitol. 

The breach of the Capitol was an obvious set-up – American Thinker

What happened at the Capitol building on Wednesday, to my eyes, obviously was a stratagem to destroy the president’s popularity and support and overshadow the challenges to the Electoral College vote.  The building was breached at the beginning of that process and riveted the media news feeds.  Members of Congress were evacuated with hoods over their heads as if they were in grave danger.

As a group of protesters approached the building, a policeman removed the barricade and appeared to invite them in.

That group entered the rotunda peacefully and stayed behind the rope line.  Those who observed this noted that there were several instigators embedded among the crowd.  They were using bullhorns to agitate and move people.  A couple of them set off flash bangs.

We now know that several known Antifa activists were among the agitators.  As they broke windows, Trump-supporters tried to stop them.  But the distraction worked, frightened the pathetically spineless Republicans who were set to challenge the stolen election.  They quickly capitulated, and Biden was certified.  The Republicans, even the ones we thought had grit, got rolled.

As I read each of the articles I was continuously reminded of the scene from the final Hunger Games movie. which I shared at the beginning of the article.  If you have not read the Hunger Games novels I strongly recommend you do so.  They have an very libertarian message.  They are about a successful rebellion against an extremely powerful and oppressive central government led by President Snow. 

When the main character, Katniss Everdeen, and the rebel forces make it to the presidential mansion they notice that it is surrounded by pens containing capitol children serving as human shields for the president.  Out of nowhere a capitol hovercraft appears and drops bombs on the pens of capitol children.  At that point the remaining capitol forces abandon President Snow, ending the war.

As you can see from the scene I shared, President Snow informs Katniss that the head of the rebellion, President Coin, is the person who actually ordered a disguised hovercraft to bomb the capitol children as a ploy to break the will of the remaining capitol forces, ending the war.

I believed that the riot at the US Capitol was the same sort of political ploy by leftists to discredit President Trump and his supporter, just like the authors of the articles I shared here earlier, and the authors of so may other articles I have read on the subject.  I am no conspiracy theorist, I am just the opposite.  I am someone who has studied a great deal of history.  Similar tactics have been used by leftists over and over again.  The Germans during World War II and the Soviets both used that type of tactic. 

The #Unexpectedly Chronicles: Stock Manipulation is Fine Unless Done by the “Wrong” People

Mr. Jaggers: We’ll start setting his stocks short and keep selling it short until we break him.

Aide: But Mr. Jaggers his company has a solid reputation

Mr. Jaggers: Then start spreading rumors. Use that ugly word “mismanagement”… be inventive now, see to it.

So let me get this straight.

If well connected multi billion dollar hedge funds conspire to sell a stock short thus make a huge profit at the expense of the shareholders in a move that might damage or destroy the prospects of a company, why that’s is simply the free market at work with some people winning and some losing and anyone who objects is a communist!

BUT

If ordinary citizens seeing this move conspire to boost the value of a stock that been shorted strengthening the value of the company & the stock and making a huge profit at the expense of the hedge fund managers who were conspiring to destroy them, well that not only an example of online hate but it’s a travesty of justice that has to be stopped by new regulation and the shutting down of any recourse that makes it possible.

Now me, I don’t like either game. I’m for the the old fashioned concept of the value of a company & its stock being based on the quality of the product or service it creates and the demand or lack thereof said product or service generates, rather than on manipulation or tax breaks to shore it up.

Perhaps if traders worked on that principle rather than playing games they would not be in a dead panic now and remember, if this can happen with Gamestop or AMC it can happen with any publicly traded company.
