Jan 6 ‘Insurrection’ Cost $1.5 Million in Damages, But Black Lives Matter Riots Cost $2 Billion

The so-called “insurrection” on Jan. 6 reportedly cost the federal government $1.5 million in damages.

The so-called “insurrection” on Jan. 6 reportedly cost the federal government $1.5 million in damages. But that’s a drop in the bucket compared to the more than $2 billion the Black Lives Matter rioting cost in 2020.

According to a recent estimate published by the Washington Post, the Jan. 6 incursion in the Capitol caused $1.5 million in damages.

U.S. prosecutors this week put a price tag on damage to the U.S. Capitol from the Jan. 6 breach — $1.5 million so far — and for the first time are asking defendants to cover some of the bill in plea offers, prosecutors and defense lawyers said.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Washington cited the damage estimate Wednesday in court and in plea papers filed in the case of Paul Hodgkins, 38. The Tampa crane operator pleaded guilty to one felony count of obstructing an official proceeding of Congress and faces sentencing July 19 in Washington.

But while the hardcore left and its minions in the left-wing media continue to claim that the Jan. 6 event was the “worst attack since the Civil War,” the truth is, the many Black Lives Matter riots were far, far worse on the nation.

Last Sept., Fox News reported that the costs to the nation of the BLM riots was already past $2 billion.

Regardless of the dollars and cents of the situation, though, the left is lying to you about the Jan. 6 incursion being the “worst attack since the Civil War.”

This is a flat-out lie. There have been more than a dozen attacks on the U.S. Capital that were far worse than what happened when some patriots broke a window and went sight-seeing in the Capitol building.

Joe Biden continues to lie about the severity of the incursion of the Capitol building on Jan. 6th when he says it was the “worst attack since the Civil War.” Sorry, pal, not even close.

First of all, the Confederate Army never even got into Washington D.C. proper. The closest they got was 6 miles away when C.S. General Jubal Early tried a raid toward the Yankee Capital in 1864. So, in fact, the C.S.A. never launched a serious attack on D.C. during the war. And in the only case where they got close, Early and his troops were so exhausted, they ended up being not much of a threat even when they did.

But, even if you fudge the situation and claim that the rebel general got “close enough,” there have been more than a dozen incidents since the Civil War that were far worse than the day this year when a handful of protesters broke a glass and did a little sightseeing.

Biden has repeatedly claimed that the incident on Jan. 6 was somehow the worst attack since the Civil War. He alluded to the claim during his first address to Congress in April. But more recently, he reiterated it on May 26 when he criticized Republicans for not supporting the Democrat’s Jan. 6 commission.

“I can’t imagine anyone voting against the establishing commission on the greatest assault since the Civil War on the Capitol,” Biden said.

Joe Biden is a liar.

Airline Kicks Family Off Flight After Toddler Removes Mask During Asthma Attack

Unbelievable.

Published

on

At times, it is easy to see why some of us are losing faith in humanity as a whole.

Somewhere in the mix, we’ve all turned cold and calculated.  Mathematically prepared for litigation at all times.  We’re robotic in our understanding of the rules and consequences, but all the while shunning common sense and the idea that decency often depends on extenuating circumstances.

Such was the case this week on an American Airlines flight.

A mother and her 2-year-old son were forced to deplane an American Airlines flight on Monday after the child would not keep a mask on.

Amanda Pendarvis posted to her Instagram story that she, her young son and her mother were removed from the flight. Pendarvis said her son was having an asthma attack at the time.

Flight 1284 returned to its gate at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport before departing for Colorado after the party refused to “comply with crew member instructions to remain seated while on an active taxiway and to wear face coverings securely over their nose and mouth,” American Airlines said in a statement to FOX Business.

The company attempted to shift the blame in a statement.

The airline said crew members were never made aware that the child was having an asthma attack or issues breathing. Additionally, the passengers were not addressed for failure to comply with face-covering requirements at any point while administering treatment, according to the carrier.

The move comes amid a heated national debate on COVID-19 precautions, and among a populace who is growing ever more irate with the idea of remaining masked indefinitely.

Gabby Petito’s stepfather, Jim Schmidt, called out his stepdaughter’s fiancé for not cooperating with authorities or assisting the investigation.

“You say she’s the love of your life. She’s missing. You were on a trip with her, but you have no comment. You have nothing to say and you’re hiding behind an attorney,” he told Fox News on Thursday.

“I understand the constitutional rights that people have, but you have pieces to this puzzle that we need to find Gabby and you’re withholding them from us.”

Police have revealed that the two were in contact with police during their trip, after a domestic argument resulted in a call to local law enforcement.

The silence of Laundrie has been a sharply criticized decision, and many around the country find the choice to be a vile one.
