By The Federalist. Americans have been gaslighted, again. After a horde of Trump supporters sacked the U.S. Capitol building over Congress certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win in the Electoral College this month, Democrats and legacy media raised hysteria that the recent incursion was the first in what was supposed to become a series of domestic attacks targeting state capitols ahead of the inauguration. . .
Upwards of 25,000 federal troops descended on Washington to prepare for the imminent insurrection, occupying the city with more boots on the ground in the Beltway than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. At least 17 other states called up the National Guard. Police ramped up security in all 50 state capitols, bracing for an attack, while Democrats exploiting the Jan. 6 crisis at the Capitol continued to feed fears of a right-wing revolution after spending eight months vilifying law enforcement in the wake of their own in the name of social justice. . .
Reminder that our nation's capital looked like this at the beginning of the summer and most Democrats/media shrugged it off as mostly peaceful https://t.co/1zvsLVRuQc

As the New York Times published on Sunday, however, FBI warnings of a violent uprising, amplified by Democrats with hysterical theatrics featuring more troops occupying Washington than parts of the Middle East, have yet to substantiate.
“After Capitols Become Fortresses, Far-Right Protesters Are Mostly a No-Show,” the Times headlined its reporting.
The nation’s militarized streets on Sunday were a remarkable spectacle as police and National Guard officers faced off with promised right-wing protests that, at least on Sunday, were reduced to a whimper. Protesters in some states could be counted on one hand.
Planned protests stay small and quiet Sunday despite preparations https://t.co/ZmphPVFKTc

Hillary Clinton: Trump’s Phone Records Should Be Checked To See If He Called Putin During Capitol Riot
By Daily Caller. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday that President Donald Trump’s phone records should be checked to see if he called Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Capitol riot.
. . .During a podcast interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Clinton suggested that Trump was in cahoots with Putin during the riot.
“I would love to see his phone records, to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our capitol,” Clinton, who lost the presidential race against Trump in 2016, said. “But we all know that not just him, his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy.”
.@SpeakerPelosi and I agree:
Congress needs to establish an investigative body like the 9/11 Commission to determine Trump's ties to Putin so we can repair the damage to our national security and prevent a puppet from occupying the presidency ever again. pic.twitter.com/yR7LQmXm5Z
