In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Trump told McCarthy he bore some blame for riot at the Capitol: Report

According to Fox News:

President Trump acknowledged that he bears some blame for the Capitol riot last week during a conversation with House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, a source familiar told Fox News.

Two sources say McCarthy R-Calif., relayed the president’s sentiment on a call Monday with the House GOP Conference.

McCarthy, on the call Monday with Republicans, agreed that Trump bore blame for the unrest which sent Congress into lockdown as they tried to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election last week.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The riot left five people dead, including one Capitol Police officer.

The riot came after the president spoke at a rally last Wednesday, telling supporters that he would “never concede,” and repeated unsubstantiated claims that the election was “stolen” from him and that he won in a “landslide.”

Trump also told demonstrators to protest “peacefully” at the Capitol.

  1. We had actual riots all summer, looting and burning cities, with unprecedented violence against police and everyday citizens…and we’re fixated on this.

    Bravo, MSM. You win.

  2. For all the good Trump did, this egregious day will be the blemish that never goes away. But Americans tend to move on and so we will. Somehow all the violence and destruction of private property happened and we moved on. Not good, but its the way it is.
    We simply need to move on, question the election process, work to make our country safer and preserve the values that built our nation.


  3. He is responsible for a lot of things, but not the riot at the Capitol building.
    Let’s be honest here, too: Only one death happened during the riot and that was at the hand of a policeman charged with protecting members of Congress.
    The other deaths were from ‘medical’ issues and had nothing to do with marching, rioting or violence.
    He may be in an anguished state over what happened but it’s not his fault that adults rioted and committed vandalism.
    The fault for this incident lies on the shoulders of all the cheaters who stole the election, who created a political atmosphere where name-calling of the worst insults was deemed to be fitting against ordinary citizens.
    He is responsible for giving us back our country, for allowing us to be proud to be Americans, to open up employment opportunities, to having a foreign policy that made sense, and for giving us someone we knew worked for us, no one else.

    1. My comment is awaiting “moderation”? Why?
      I’m not a profane person, I don’t advocate violence for anyone or anything, I am a reasonable and thoughtful thinker and writer.

      I won’t be silenced.

    2. srdem65 – I agree with what you wrote with respect to President Trump. He may have some rough edges; he speaks like a regular person not like a politician (think obama). I am not in a position to criticize President Trump’s character “flaws” for I also have my character “flaws”; I am not perfect. The reasons you gave for Trump being so loved by a significant number of average, hard working Americans may just be the reasons the Elite, Democrats, the Establishment, the politically correct, Deep State, etc (ad nauseam) want to destroy him. May God protect and be with President Trump.
