    Document in Jan. 6 Case Shows Plan to Storm Government Buildings

    New details from evidence cited in the indictment of Enrique Tarrio, the former head of the far-right Proud Boys, reveal a plan with similarities to what unfolded at the Capitol.

    By Alan Feuer

    “A document found by federal prosecutors in the possession of a far-right leader contained a detailed plan to surveil and storm government buildings around the Capitol on Jan. 6 last year, people familiar with the document said on Monday.

    The document, titled “1776 Returns,” was cited by prosecutors last week in charging the far-right leader, Enrique Tarrio, the former head of the Proud Boys extremist group, with conspiracy. The indictment of Mr. Tarrio described the document in general terms, but the people familiar with it added substantial new details about the scope and complexity of the plan it set out for directing an effort to occupy six House and Senate office buildings and the Supreme Court last Jan. 6.”

        I live in this state and have heard nothing about this. Nothing! I read the comments on original tweet and people who live in that area were saying the same thing. WHAT the what? This is crazy. The governor has ‘crowed’ about this. I had no idea it had been stopped, or at least trying to stop.

      They can only focus on one thing at a time! If they manage to expand a little, it will still be anything that they can make negative for Pres. Biden. 😢😡. I don’t know about others, but I would like to hear other news besides CONSTANT Ukraine. There is other things that need to be covered, ie. Earthquake in Japan, etc.

    Ballerina leaves Russia for Netherlands after denouncing war.

    A leading Bolshoi prima ballerina, who recently denounced Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, is leaving the country to join Dutch National Ballet.

    Olga Smirnova, 30, said last week she was “against this war with every fibre of my soul” and was supported by other Russian ballerinas.

    The Dutch National Ballet confirmed to BBC News on Wednesday that Smirnova will start with them immediately.

    Its director Ted Brandsen described her as an “exceptional dancer”.

    Smirnova has a Ukrainian grandfather and has described herself as “one-quarter Ukrainian”.

    Remarks by President Biden Celebrating the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act

    MARCH 16, 2022

    “As a society, we literally looked away. We looked away. In many places, it wasn’t a crime.
    And I don’t recall — I don’t recall how many times I was told in the prelude to writing the legislation that it’s a “family affair.”

    “You don’t understand, Biden. It’s a family affair.”

    “They’d say, “Why didn’t — why didn’t she leave?” Well, she didn’t leave. She had no place to go, and she had two kids with her. No money. Nothing. No family to go to. Leave?”

    Vladimir Putin Has Fallen Into the Dictator Trap
    Reality doesn’t conform to the theory of the rational, calculating despot who can play the long game.
    By Brian Klaas

    “In the span of a couple of weeks, Vladimir Putin—a man recently described by Donald Trump as a strategic “genius”—managed to revitalize NATO, unify a splintered West, turn Ukraine’s little-known president into a global hero, wreck Russia’s economy, and solidify his legacy as a murderous war criminal.

    How did he miscalculate so badly?

    To answer that question, you have to understand the power and information ecosystems around dictators.
    I’ve studied and interviewed despots across the globe for more than a decade. In my research, I’ve persistently encountered a stubborn myth—of the savvy strongman, the rational, calculating despot who can play the long game because he (and it’s typically a he) doesn’t have to worry about pesky polls or angry voters. Our elected leaders, this view suggests, are no match for the tyrant who gazes into the next decade rather than fretting about next year’s election.

    Reality doesn’t conform to that rosy theory.”

    A year later, Atlanta remembers the 8 people killed in spa shootings

    “Activists and community members are preparing for the one year anniversary of the deadly shootings at Atlanta area spas when a man killed eight people, six of them of Asian descent.

    The anniversary will take place on March 16 but events began Saturday with a community remembrance day. A larger rally against anti-Asian racism and violence called “Break the Silence” is planned for Wednesday at the Georgia Capitol. Other cities such as Chicago, New York, Houston, San Francisco and Washington D.C., will host their own versions of the rally as well.”

    “And a recent survey published earlier this month from the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) found that 74% of Asian American and Pacific Islander women reported experiencing racism and/or discrimination over the last year, and 53% said the perpetrator was a stranger or someone they didn’t know.

    For East Asian respondents in particular, 51% of women said they feel less safe today than at the start of the pandemic.’

    Marina Ovsyannikova,
    who held up NO WAR sign on Russia’s most watched TV news program said:
    (from USA Today)

    ”What is currently happening in Ukraine is a crime.
    Russia is a country-aggressor.
    All responsibility for this aggression lies on the conscience of one person:
    Vladimir Putin.

    My father is Ukrainian,
    my mother is Russian.
    They were never enemies.”

    • March 17, 2022 at 6:41 pm

      Ovsyannikova said she worked for Channel One over the last few years doing Kremlin propaganda and was now ashamed of it.

      “I am ashamed that I allowed (Channel One) to tell lies from the TV screen.

      I am ashamed of letting Russian people get zombied,” Ovsyannikova said.

      “We just quietly watched this antihuman regime.”

      Imo we must find a way to inform Russian State News viewers t
      hat Putin is making fools of them, making them puppets and co-conspirators of his war crimes, his personal war on their Ukrainian brothers, sisters, friends and family members.

      Ditto Sister Fox News, OAN and Trump news outlets, Scribbs local news,
      regarding the violent deadly siege on the Capitol, lies about Covid-19, lifesaving vaccines…leading to countless American sickness and deaths. It’s time.

    Russian state-backed news channel RT has had its licence to broadcast in the UK revoked “with immediate effect” by media regulator Ofcom.

    The watchdog said RT’s parent body ANO TV Novosti was not “fit and proper to hold a UK broadcast licence”.

    RT’s coverage of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been under investigation by Ofcom, and the channel had already disappeared from UK screens.

    RT, formerly named Russia Today, called Ofcom “a tool of the government”.

    The channel became unavailable on all UK broadcast platforms earlier this month as a result of a ban imposed by the European Union.

    Seneca Mothers stand in solidarity with Ukraine mothers
    ‘Sullivan’s Campaign,’ a federal invasion to destroy the Seneca and Cayuga, cannot be forgotten. War, occupation and attempted genocide are alive and well in eastern Europe: ‘We were Ukraine’ #InternationalWomensDay

    By Leslie Logan

    “In 1779, President George Washington unleashed the “Sullivan Campaign” —
    a scorched earth policy that ordered the total destruction of the Iroquois villages in the central New York Finger Lakes region.The incursion torched more than 40 Seneca and Cayuga villages, killing women and children and burning to the ground their foods stores and hundreds of acres of orchards. The survivors fled on foot, with few possessions, to Canada and further westward to the Genesee Valley.

    The military expedition was a targeted genocidal campaign intended to annihilate the Iroquois.
    The invasion succeeded in permanently removing the Seneca and Cayuga from the highly-valued prime agricultural area.

    Today, more than 250 years after the federal attempts to brutally extinguish the Seneca and Cayuga, in order to seize all of central New York, Vladimir Putin has ordered the Russian army to invade the neighboring independent state of Ukraine.

    It is impossible to ignore the parallels we are witnessing on the world’s stage with the invasion of Ukraine and the long ago invasion of Seneca villages. The sharp echoes of my ancestors’ shared, historic experience with large-scale assaults on villages and military operations that spared no one, reverberate.”
