Insurrection on U.S. Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021

I was watching CNBC while trading stock market simultaneously on January 6, 2021 morning. Then the CNBC switched to the U.S. Capitol Hill and broadcasted the news of riot on Capitol. The unbelievable violent scene unfolded on TV screen. Please refer to the photos inserted.

Trump is a demagogue. He lost the presidential election since November 2020, and January 6, 2021 was the day "Electoral College" scheduled to cast vote count in Congress. Trump took the failure of his reelection into his own hands and encouraged his supporters to go on U.S. Capitol and caused chaotic riot.

The invasion of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 was stoked in plain sight. For weeks, the far-right supporters of President Donald Trump railed on social media that the election had been stolen. They openly discussed the idea of violent protest on the day Congress met to certify the result.

We came up with the idea to occupy just outside the CAPITOL on Jan 6th,” leaders of the Stop the Steal movement wrote on Dec. 23. They called their Wednesday demonstration the Wild Protest, a name taken from a tweet by Trump that encouraged his supporters to take their grievances to the streets of Washington. “Will be wild,” the president tweeted.

The next day, and blocked Trump's to prevent his foolish tweeting. The House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will proceed 2nd impeachment on Trump even the Joe Biden's inauguration day (January 20, 2021) is approaching.

Those rioters are chauvinists (盲目的愛國者) and violent people. They are easily to be incited. Trump for his own selfish failure on presidential election reason and he incited his supporters to go on Capitol Hill for insurrection. He became the world laughingstock.

I am worry about the "SECURITY" of Capitol Hill. Those mobs (thugs) could storm into the highest government building, what else they can't go? The security guards couldn't defend themselves to the mobs. The security system is too weak. The mobs broke gate, entered the Capitol.

I, as an ordinary woman, I have Ring Doorbell, and surveillance cameras around my house. I can detect who is at my front door, my two side yards and backyard. I can see the theft or burglar are around my house because those equipment are "motion sensitive" and I can immediately know through my smartphone app. The app alerts me with a tone of sound and I just click the app and it shows who is there at my house. It gives me time to call 911, police, ... to defend myself before they can approach my doors. I can see them even I am in Europe or Australia, or anywhere, as long as WiFi is available.

My Tesla car also has the same "alert theft system" too. It is same as Ring Doorbell. Tesla has 8 surveillance cameras around the car. Tesla car also has images of the cars around my car when driving too close to front car, two side lanes, and at rear.

High tech is good.

Trump detached with realty that he lost the presidential election. He made up with many excuses that "massive frauds" and "voting machine switched the votes for him to Biden" after he left to sleep on election night. He couldn't accept the fact that he lost the election. So, he encourage his supports to go on Capitol and those mobs entered the Capitol where "electoral college" will cast their votes. The rioters interrupted the Congressmen and Senators during the section. They barricaded the door and draw their guns and hide themselves behind the tables.

Trump has done a huge mistake to encourage his supporters to Capitol. It is his fault to make a terrible scene just 2 weeks before he leave the White House. What a shame!!

Many Trump's cabinet members announced resignation including U.S. Transportation secretary, Elain Chao. Elain Chao was born in Taiwan. She served as U.S. Secretary of Labor from 2001 to January 2009, and is the first Taiwanese-American woman to be appointed to the President's cabinet in American history. Her husband is Mitch McConnell, currently serving as Senate majority leader.

As the consequence of the insurrection, 4 persons died and police arrested 68 people and investigate the whole incident.

Trump's selfishness caused this riot. He still said "massive fraud" and unfair election.

The election is over for 2 months, Trump is over. It is water under the bridge, it is over. There is no need to cause turmoil on Capitol Hill.

I think Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Guliani made a fake story about Hunter Biden's three laptop computers that contain many obscene pictures. Rudy said the 3 laptops were purchased in April 2019, water damaged in April 2019 and sent to repair in April 2019. How that possible that 3 laptop all happened in the same month?? I wonder Rudy Guliani made up the story. Rudy is an attorney but he committed crime in order to help Trump's election.
