The FBI and local law enforcement are working together regarding "threats of violence" and Virginia clergy leaders are urging prayer and peace as the state's capital braces for a guns rights rally on Monday -- a date which coincides with the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr's legacy.

The authorities needed some antifascist martyrs to to be horribly martyred by the horrible gunners to show how evil the gunners are. All the antigunners knew that some of them were going to be martyred and declined to show up.

Antifa said "hell no", and vigil people (realizing that they were ideal martyrs) said "no".

The normal tactic is to attack the protesters, and all the press says "See how evil they are. When attacked they fight back." The protesters had enough guns to conquer a small nation. If attacked, they might have conquered Virginia.

Observe. Not a single counterprotester. Not one. A few shills, but the protesters were on their guard for shills and spotted them immediately.

The global warming scam exposed

More Twitter diplomacy:

General Gholamali Abuhamzeh:

"vital American targets in the region have been identified by Iran since long time ago … some 35 U.S. targets in the region as well as Tel Aviv are within our reach,”

@realDonaldTrump:

"if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!"

Iranian capability to escalate is limited by economic problems. To make war costs blood and treasure, and they are mighty short of treasure.

Trump is using the same tactic as Reagan successfully used against the Soviet Union. Socialism impaired the Soviet logistic capability, so Reagan engaged them in an arms race they could not afford, and bled them in innumerable small wars in client states whose hand was always out and which the Soviet Union could not afford. It was not bombs that defeated the Soviet army in Afghanistan but lack of potatoes.

Iran has already escalated beyond what they can afford, and further escalation will worsen their economic crisis.

Bumping off Soleimani was covered by an authorization to use force in Iraq. The moment Soleimani and his entourage swept through airport customs, he was a combatant in a combat zone, and immediately after sweeping through airport customs, Trump blew him up.

There is no congressional authorization to use force on Iranian targets, but if Iran strikes at American targets in the straights, Trump probably will not care, and if he does care, congress will probably give him authorization.

I don't think Iranians will try it. If they escalate, will find it hard to feed and supply their troops.

We saw with Isis that killing leaders works. You cannot fight a war without a supreme commander. Trump killed the top dog in Isis, they promptly appointed a replacement, and Trump promptly killed the replacement. Since then, no more Isis.

I predict there will be no "massive retaliation" by Iranian proxies, because no one wants to replace Soleimani.

The protocol has the unanimous support of " “UMCNext; Mainstream UMC; Uniting Methodists; The Confessing Movement; Good News; The Institute on Religion & Democracy; the Wesleyan Covenant Association; Affirmation; Methodist Federation for Social Action; Reconciling Ministries Network; and the United Methodist Queer Clergy Caucus; "

Which is to say, has the unanimous support of hostile entryists who hate Christ, hate the God of the Old and New Testaments, and hate Christians as Trump voting deplorables.

What could go wrong?

Trump opens the new year with a war priest calling on God to strengthen him in the coming battle.

Holy war is on the table.

For a long time the progressive priesthood has deemed us unholy, racist, and deplorable. Sinners deserving of the wrath of the state.

For decades they have been making steadily escalating war upon all who they deemed sinners, and have come to deem ever more Americans sinners.

Is the fight back going to begin?

It has not begun yet, and may not begin ever, but you have to bring a knife to a gunfight, and Trump has brought a religion to a holy war.

Trump in his Christmas message appeals to God, Christians, and the US Military. Good positioning for civil war. Remember, it is peace on earth for all men of good will . After you are out of cheeks and have walked the extra mile, then you can kill them and take their stuff.

House Republicans stormed a closed-door hearing Wednesday to protest Democrats' impeachment inquiry process, breaking up the deposition of a top Defense Department official who was testifying about President Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

Republicans stormed in to the Cooper hearing, and, predictably, Democrats refused to hear his testimony where they could not leak their spin on Cooper's unchallenged.

The left's plan for impeachment was escalating defiance of the rules until they finally impeach Trump in an irregular fashion contrary to the constitution. But this only maintains the appearance of legality and precedent if Republicans go along with it.

The color revolution script is "he is weak, weaker, weaker, he is falling, he is falling, falling, falling, falling, he has fallen". And if he has already fallen no need to hold a merely formal impeachment.

Color revolutions are apt to turn into genocidal holy war when the other side does not play along with the script. The "he has fallen announcement" is apt to be made prematurely, and actual fighting ensues between the new "government" and the "fallen" government. Not that I am betting on civil war before 2026, but the Democrats are on a path where they either fail, or proceed to civil war. Likely they will accept failing this time, whereupon the older smarter whiter Democrats lose power to the crazies, who complain than the saner Democrats stabbed the crazier Democrats in the back, as of course they did.

If they go with impeachment according to the rules and precedent, will totally blow up in their faces. If they back off from impeachment, the left will devour them. If they follow the color revolution script to the bitter end, irregular impeachment proceedings followed by premature proclamation of decisive victory and irregular impeachment, Civil War II.

We probably will not have Civil War II this time around, but everywhere around the American Hegemony, elite civility is collapsing, and they are playing with tactics that bring us closer to civil war. in many places in the American hegemony the elite are maneuvering to start arresting each other, everywhere political events are deviating further and further from established precedent and established legality.

Ukrainian officials ... provided information that generated the investigation of Mr. Manafort—acts that one Ukrainian court has said violated Ukrainian law and “led to interference in the electoral processes of the United States in 2016 and harmed the interests of Ukraine as a state.”

It looks like they did this under pressure from Biden, Soros connected ngos, and Victoria Nuland acting for Hillary Clinton, that US pressure and bribery was applied by multiple people to create a pretext to spy on Trump and on people in his campaign.

Supposing this to be so, and supposing that Trump has the goods on them, an impeachment hearing in the Senate would be a great place for the big reveal.
