'The Leaders Of The Riot Were Paid!'



- Loyal insurgents gather.
_______________

- 'The Leaders Of The Riot were Paid.' Daily Kos, Jan. 14, 2021.

Yahoo News has the exclusive story: Large bitcoin payments to right-wing activists a month before Capitol riot linked to foreign account:

- Right-wing figures and websites, including VDARE, the Daily Stormer and Nick Fuentes, received generous donations from a bitcoin account linked to a French cryptocurrency exchange, according to research done by software company Chainalysis, which maintains a repository of information about public cryptocurrency exchanges and whose tools aid in government, law enforcement and private sector investigations. Chainalysis investigated the donations after Yahoo News shared the data points about the transaction. -

If this happened, now, one can be sure it’s happened before. The 1/6 riots have done more then expose the weakness in protecting the seats of our government, it has brought to the forefront the terror we face within.

Under the Biden Department of Justice these fringe terrorist groups and organizations will be watched, scrutinized, and indicted. The cow-towed media, beaten into submission by Trump, will be hungry for any story on domestic terrorism and it’s sponsors. Their enablers within the government will be flushed out and punished.

The fact that the monies have been traced to overseas will bring multiple agencies into play. We are under attack from within and abroad.

There was a reason Trump and Republicans feared losing, this is a big one... ~

- Yahoo News, 'Large Bitcoin Payments To Rightwing Activists A Month Before Capitol Riot Linked To Foreign Account'

WASHINGTON — On Dec. 8, someone made a simultaneous transfer of 28.15 bitcoins — worth more than $500,000 at the time — to 22 different virtual wallets, most of them belonging to prominent right-wing organizations and personalities.

Now cryptocurrency researchers believe they have identified who made the transfer, and suspect it was intended to bolster those far-right causes. U.S. law enforcement is investigating whether the donations were linked to the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol.

While the motivation is difficult to prove, the transfer came just a month before the violent riot in the Capitol, which took place after President Trump invited supporters to “walk down Pennsylvania Avenue” and “take back our country.”...

Looks like it is leading to a foreign adversary. Maybe linked to Mr. 45.

There had to be money flowing in.
Who paid for bus and airline tickets?
Hotel rooms? Food and booze?

People were acting like they were on a free vacation.
Maybe they were.

22. Turning Point USA claimed to be paying dozens of buses, maybe accomodations too

However, keep one thing in mind: based on the people who have been identified, this wasn't exactly a gathering of the "economically anxious." There were a lot of people who could very much afford to shell out for tickets and hotel rooms and drinks to party over afterward.

There may be a lot for whom "they" (whoever that might be) paid to get people there, but there's also a large portion, maybe the majority, who just put it on their own credit cards.

we don't even want to think about the amount of TopSecret Intelligence they have collected to sell after they are no longer in power.

Do you remember the Valerie Plame incident. When she was "outed" as a CIA operative by W/Cheney/Rumsfeld?????????

Someone I was sitting with when the news of that was on TV said: There will be dozens of *people* all over the world, "disappearing, or found dead" in the next 24 hours.....

44. Cheney is responsible for the death of covert agents, yes.

Scooter Libby should still be in prison.

I am sure agents have died with Trump giving intel to Putin, perhaps North Korea too.

Some say there is not much left for Trump to sell.
He and Jared have sold everything.
Jared has not been getting huge loans from Saudi for nothing.

Think about what they did in secret.

Yep Bush and Cheney, Cheney in particular belongs at the Hague.

31. The insurgency just got worse.

It was bad enough....oh, I guess it wasn't quite bad enough, because this little bombshell takes it to a whole different realm.

Agree with someone's sincerely-derived political postures or not, there is a certain amount of honour in going after that which you sincerely believe. I know a lot of people are too young to remember this, but...the Republican party used to be made up of largely reasonable people with whom were disagreed. Sometimes, bitterly and fully, but we could at least agree to disagree about most things.

Pimping yourself out as having a defensible disagreement arising from a thorough examination of a subject, then acting on it is not honourable in the least, when you're paid for that "deliberation." It is the moral equivalent of no-questions-asked mercenaries. Hell, it is pretty much the direct equivalent.
