When the domestic terrorists smashed their way

into the capital building January 6, 2021, they were more than ready to cause destruction and violence. When they encountered Officer Brian Sicknick, they didn't care if he was a Democrat or a Republican. He was simply the enemy. They then, without a thought of who he was, of his loved ones and those dear to him at home, bashed his head in with a fire extinguisher

On the flipside, Officer Brian Sicknick didn't care whether the people in the building were Republicans or Democrats. He had taken an oath to protect them. All of them. People like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Amy Klobuchar, and hundreds of of other Senators and Congressmen and women on both sides of the
aisle. The few seconds he gave everyone in the chambers by giving up his own life may have been just the time needed to alert the danger, begin locking down and begin the evacuations.

I am at a loss to why this hasn't been stated here on DU before this. At least some of the terrorists were going to, at the least, take hostages. At the worst, take out the entire line of Succession. This didn't happen thank the Gods. But every second counted. And our country survived THIS exchange. We need brave people who at the right time do the right thing up to and including giving their lives for even strangers and political opposites. I have no more words to say (that wouldn't get my post hidden, that is) except RIP Officer Brian Sicknick.


Question for the legal eagles here at DU.

Can those charged in the violent insurrection and tresspass/vandalism of The Peoples House yesterday be charged with murder as at least one of the deaths occurred during the act of committing a felony?

What do DC laws say about this.

I went to Parler to check out the claims about requiring a ss number

to sign up. Right away I found this in their 'terms of service'.

So yes.... Many Parler members SS numbers and IDs probably where compromised if they chose to join the 'Influencer Network'. And what self respecting fascist and Trumpazoid wouldn't want to join such a fancy, powerful sounding network?

Tots and Pears idiots...

Edited to add: Any doubt that the Trumpazoids have about the security of Parler MUST be exploited. Their ingrained paranoia will be their downfall when all is said and done.

Sow the fields folks.....plant the doubt.


It's not clown surgery!

Undecided voters are like...

If someone from either party has told you

in person or on social media in the last 6 months that they will never vote for Joe Biden, do you think after all that has happened in the United States, they will end up voting for Biden or are they a lost cause.

I wrote this while I was in college.

I published it in various periodicals the last being a Pagan newsletter in 1988.

tRump's bringing us to the brink of war makes it more relevant then ever before.


A flash.
A roar.
The gates of Hell opened and then closed again
in a blinding moment of Armageddon.

A tool of the gods.
A loaded gun in the grasp of an unbalanced child
whose hand no parent dares to slap.

What fate lies in a world of instant death
where the sun can touch the soil of peace
and burn out life forever?

No one knows but the formula.

Peace to all here on DU as we move into unknown realms.

ONLY!!! 2020 and beyond.

Just had a drive by shooting right out in front of our Apartment.

15 shots fired. One victim taken to the hospital.

Just another day in 'Merca.

But guns don't kill peo..... never the fuck mind!

ONLY!!! 2019 and beyond.

Simple online Russian enablers spotting post with links to the DU archives and Archive.org.

Here are some links DUers can use to search for past and current Russian enablers on DU and JPR.

These resources are the DU archives here on DU itself and The Wayback
Machine on archive.org.

Here are the links -



For the DU archives I have given January 1st, 2014 in the link above. You can change the dates by simply
changing the last numbers of the link. Example: 2018x8x5 will give you posts from Aug 5th, 2018. You can
search forward and backward through the years as needed.

I suggest looking for samples in anti DNC posts, posts praising Assange or Russian tools such as Grucifer 2.0,
those claiming the DNC has rigged elections, etc. Names of banned posters will be very familiar to long time
DUers and you will have tons of posts for reference. Very eye opening.

For archive.org, put www.democraticunderground.com into the Wayback Machine and choose the year and day. Days
that have a snapshot will have a colored circle. click on those.

Fortunately for the enabler hunter, a large number of archives for JPR are also available on archive.org. Pity that all those who thought that they had purged their past posts leaving no evidence were sadly mistaken but
as we all know...the internet is truly forever.

Put JPRs web address starting with www. into the Wayback Machine to find possible troll samples from this vile site.

IMHO, no one who supported the Russian hacking of the past election and the DNC has any right to post any attacks on primary candidates in this election.

So enjoy, or not as the case may be but happy Russian enablers hunting all.


ONLY!!! 2019 and beyond

If you are not watching 'Jake Tapper Ruins The Debates'

like I'm not and you're not tied down to a computer screen or cell phone, what new or favorite book title is your choice for this evening?

Myself, I'm taking a walk down the path of the seen and unseen by rereading the English translation of Morning Of The Magicians by Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier. If you have never read this classic tome of fortian knowledge, mysticism and Pseudoscience you should find a copy to read right away.

What's your paper poison tonight?

Peabody and Sherman...DU style (or ,why all the negative attacks).

With the Democratic primary season well underway, the ghosts of primaries past are already rearing
their ugly heads.

The attacks ( or perceived attacks ) here on DU of Democratic candidates seem to be happening
on a daily basis and many have a familiar deja vu quality about them. Well I
had a free day yesterday to go exploring for older DU posts and I came across this
wonderful site...


This site has a great internet archive called WAYBACK MACHINE with the ability to
search the history of over 357 billion web pages.

Type www.democraticunderground.com into the Wayback Machine and get ready to explore

My internet search specifically concentrated on past posts on DU and on the bizzaro
anti-Democratic site Jack Pine Radicals (which I wont type the link here but you can find on Google).
I searched the Jack Pine Radicals site because most of the old posts and members
lists have been purged and I was VERY curious to see why and I know there are others who wonder too.

Not every day is represented, but the hundreds of page screen shots will give the curious a LOT to digest.

I concentrated on the year 2016 at DU and I was dismayed by the number of anti-Democratic posts I
found there all the way up to the general election and beyond. Most of the negative posts were from long
FFRed and PPRed DU members, but sadly many posts and responses are from DU members who left for a
while and have returned and some who stayed.

I will not post any of the disturbing links that I found at this time since I'm posting the link to the archive for fellow
DUers to use or not.

I do encourage the curious at DU to take a stroll down this particular memory lane. But be sure to wear hip
boots for much of 2016.

Paraphrasing from a famous Chinese proverb - A journey of a thousand miles begins with a couple clicks.

Good luck.

Edit - Green links seem to have the most Ops saved. Blue links may only have DUs main page archived.
