    My, how professional and Congressional she looks. Seriously though, she is dangerous and I can't fathom how she was elected. If she assisted with the riot planning in any way they need to eject her from Congress and throw the legal book at her. She's also the one that made such a huge stink about having metal detectors in the Capitol now. She is sick. If 2a people are okay with making little kids go through metal detectors, have clear backpacks, and have armed police around them at school because of school violence, then she can suck it up. Has she never been to a courthouse before? I can't believe they didn't already have that kind of security at the Capitol.

    Former USA Olympic swimmer Klete Keller has been charged in federal court for participating in the Capitol riot, court records show. Keller, who won gold and silver medals in the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympics was seen on video in the Capitol wearing a USA Swimming jacket.

    I can't believe it either. You can't set foot in a government building around here without going through the metal detectors, have your purse checked, etc. And she can just waltz in there with that motley crew for a "tour"??? Who knows if they had weapons or could have planted things. I am truly baffled at the lack of security, especially after 9/11, I thought they tightened up.

    And yes, she needs to be thrown out on her ass.

    He's also 6'6" so he was really noticeable in the crowd as he shoved cops. And Klete belongs in the awful baby names thread.

    He's now lost his job as a real estate salesweasel. Which reminds me, anybody else notice that a disproportionate number of the identified mob are in sales (usually real estate or automotive) or medicine? What's up with that? There are so many nurses and sales types. Is there something about the personality type that would be drawn to professions like that and would also be into violent nuttery? some weird Venn diagram there

    3) Have any additional law enforcement agencies requested access to these logs?

    4) What would prevent the SAA/USCP from permitting a visitor from entering the building?

    5) What tracking does the SAA/USCP employ to ensure that one staffer did not bring more than their allotted “official visitors” through multiple entrances?

    a) If Yes, will SAA/USCP provide the video logs?

    7) Is facial recognition software used for visitors entering the complex?

    "As people rushed out of other buildings on the Capitol grounds, staffers in Pressley’s office barricaded the entrance with furniture and water jugs that had piled up during the pandemic. Groh pulled out gas masks and looked for the special panic buttons in the office.“Every panic button in my office had been torn out — the whole unit,” she said,though they could come up with no rationale as to why. She had used them before and hadn’t switched offices since then. As they were escorted to several different secure locations, Groh and Pressley and her husband tried to remain calm and vigilant — not only of rioters but of officers they did not know or trust, she said."

    ^^ I read something similar about Tammy Duckworth not feeling able to trust officers or fellow members of Congress. She didnt know who could be in on it and she stayed hidden until she was told that Amy Klobacher said it was safe for her to come out. Then she knew it was ok.

    AOC said she feared her fellow GOP lawmakers wound lead the rioters to her: https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...blicans-death/

    Agreed. I wonder if they don't work well with others and need to shark on their own or if it was just a soft place to land because they wouldn't follow COVID protocols, got fired and thought sales was "easy." (<-- not scientific, but I've known a few pre-COVID like that)

    As someone who’s been in sales most of my career, if you are good at it, you have more free time and a flexible schedule than most people.

    and, to clarify, I am in no way saying that most or all people in those professions would be into Q-anon stuff. It just seemed weird to keep seeing the same jobs keep coming up.

    I can explain it - since I'm halfway in Sales. There are a lot of itinerant sales reps out there, who basically travel from job to job once they use up the time they've been given to actually drum up sales. I think that you are basically more susceptible to being indoctrinated by the virtues of a "product" and then turning around and extolling it to others. There's probably a strong sense of exhilaration and purpose that goes with that.

    Unrelated to Sales, I also think that adopting an ideology where you have to travel the dark alleys of some place, picking up "clues", instead of legitimate boring sources, makes you feel like some kind of intrepid explorer helping to discover the "truth" and "keep the flame". I saw this with a couple of seemingly smart coworkers who either believed in Noah's ark and a young Earth, or though 9/11 was an inside job.

    When I was in college at UMD, I would get stopped occasionally by religious nuts who wanted to convert me to their kooky religion/ideology. I never came close to falling for it. I'm a very skeptical person, but also going to a Xaverian high school turned me into a soft atheist and disillusioned Christian. Not because the Brothers were a-holes, but because they completely de-constructed all the Bible's supposed miracle passages.

    Amy Klobuchar, along with that African American security guard, practically saved the Republic. The guard led the mob away from the chambers where people were sheltering in place (while the door was temporarily open). And Klobuchar had the presence of mind to make sure that the Electoral College ballots were scooped up and taken to a secure location before the Senate chamber was breached. I cannot tell you how incredibly hot I find Amy Klobuchar right now!
