In the days following the attempted insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6th, as the faux fog of war lifted, Americans began to notice something peculiar in the never-ending replays that we watched on the nightly news: Capitol Police were woefully unprepared for even the potential of violence that day.
Of course, many have suggested that this was on account of the agency being caught off guard that day, but new evidence suggests that this was not the case.
A bipartisan probe led by two Senate committees has found that U.S. Capitol Police and other authorities were in possession of more alarming intelligence clues ahead of the Jan. 6 attack on the complex than previously documented.
The findings are part of a report issued Tuesday by the Senate Rules and Homeland Security committees looking into the series of failures of intelligence, security preparations and emergency response before and during the insurrection.take our poll - story continues below
Among new public details, the panels say Capitol Police had seen information from a pro-Trump website that included comments about the Capitol’s tunnel system and that encouraged demonstrators to bring weapons to subdue members of Congress and police and reverse the presidential election’s results.
Just how worrisome were these posts?
“This is do or die. Bring your guns,” one comment read in part, the report said.
The website also had comments that demonstrators should surround every building with a tunnel entrance or exit, be prepared to drag down police, and that they could “enter the Capitol as the Third Continental Congress and certify the Trump Electors,” referring to an alliance of militia groups.
Also, the report said, a Capitol Police official had shared a tip the night before the riot, which was received by the FBI National Threat Operations Center, of a “significant uptick” in new visitors to a website called WashingtonTunnels.com.
Authorities are still investigating the incident, with the FBI having already arrested well over 400 individuals in the case.
This clear intelligence failure could add a new element to the investigation, however, and have more Americans wondering just how it was that one of the most sensitive sites in the nation’s capital was so vulnerable on that day.
McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself
Social media users were quick to remind the world of McAfee’s own words.
John McAfee is a computing legend, having pioneered the way in which systems and networks protect themselves from viruses, malware, spyware, and all the other assorted evils of this internet age. But now he lies dead, having allegedly committed suicide in a Spanish prison cell. Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media. The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais. The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death. Authorities aren’t shying away from calling it a suicide already. “Everything points to suicide,” the newspaper reported, citing justice department officials in the country. A second Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, also reported McAfee had died by an apparent suicide in the jail. But here is where it gets strange: McAfee has been utterly insistent and consistent about the fact that he would never, ever take his own life, explicitly telling his followers on social media that, should he ever be found dead of suicide, he was killed. https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1316801215083225096?s=20 https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1200864283766251521?s=20 https://twitter.com/truthcrumbs/status/1407788935628079113?s=20 The investigation is ongoing at this time.
Lab Finds Zero Fish DNA After Testing Subway’s Tuna Sandwich
You can “eat fresh” at Subway, but can you eat fish?
For years we’ve told ourselves that there has to be a better way to do fast food. Or, at the very least, a healthier way. And so new chains are constantly popping up, while the old staples adapt. There are salads for sale as places like McDonald’s these days, which is something that kids who grew up in the 80’s might have had a hard time believing would ever occur. In the realm of healthy fast food, there is but one king: The unbreakable Subway. Not only did the brand survive having a pedophile as their spokesperson, but they currently operate more physical restaurants in the world than even the aforementioned burger purveyor. But an alarming new study has some wondering if, while they were “eating fresh” with a tuna sub, they were even eating fish. The New York Times published a report Sunday, which revealed that lab tests didn’t find “amplifiable tuna DNA” in Subway’s infamous tuna sandwich. NYT submitted “60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches” from three separate Los Angeles locations for lab analysis in wake of the lawsuit filed earlier this year alleging the sandwich chain was serving customers “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna.” The suit claims that independent lab tests showed the company meant to “imitate” tuna’s appearance by blending together these unknown ingredients. The study, commissioned by NYT, failed to not only identify tuna DNA, but the lab couldn’t even determine the origins of the fish in the provided sandwiches. “No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species,” the results read. But it’s not all bad news: “There’s two conclusions. One, it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an…
