From the NYT:

The Army activated the entire D.C. National Guard, 1,100 troops, an Army official said Wednesday, and Virginia’s governor dispatched members of the Virginia Guard along with 200 Virginia State Troopers to quell the violence in the nation’s capital.

What the hell is this all about?  Trump's last gasp to install marshal law?

Defense Department refuses to provide aid to the DC police force.. but do the Trumpers really think they have the numbers to pull this off? 

It's like looking at the working of a deranged mind in real time. Fascinating, appalling, breathtaking and downright disgusting all in one.

The Capitol is being overrun by terrorists. What they are doing is unquestionably illegal.

They need to be tear-gassed immediately.
I am not joking.

Trump, speaking to protesters, declares ‘we will never concede.’
Time and again he returned to the theme that the news media is “the biggest problem we have in this country.” He complained about polls conducted for the Washington Post several months ago, speaking with specifics about the poll he was referring to.

Talking about his inability to get his unvarnished statements into news circulation, Mr. Trump falsely declared, “That’s what happens in a communist country.”

Biden is picking Merrick Garland as attorney general...  I wonder if McConnel has anything to be investigated?

The US Capital is on lock-down due to Trump protesters marching to the site. No one can leave or enter.  It's come to this.  Thanks Donnie!

 

And you think he, the President of the United States, is
1) ashamed of the chaos and anger infecting his citizens or
2) glad to see he has people who will riot in his name

From the NYT's running commentary:

Michael S. SchmidtWashington Correspondent
Cruz says that half the country thinks the election is rigged. I wonder if he’s going to point out that the person with the largest bullhorn in the country (the president) has pushed this specious claim.

Sad really.  Americans are stupid and easy to manipulate.  It is becoming a FACT. 

In passing, I agree that American economic and political elites should enjoy an exclusive monopoly on misleading and manipulating American citizens.   

.....  Just like men of great stature should be able to sexually assault and rape women of their choice.

If we're using history as a proxy, then be careful about over-exuberance following a pandemic.

..... The stock markets are up in 2020 because of the pandemic, not in spite of it.  Higher government spending comes from higher taxes, and increasing taxes never drives the stock market higher.

Is prior Democratic Presidency financial performance causation or correlation?  It appears very likely the Senate will flip, and futures are flat.

In 3 years, I'm willing to bet that all you'll hear from the Republican candidates is how much better the markets did under Trump than Biden.  Joe's inheriting a bubble, not a rocketship.

 
Well, markets also tend to prefer lame duck presidents.   I see markets as a short-term voting machine by folks who seek to increase private wealth levels and are not concerned about longer-term social outcomes. A Democratic sweep of these two seats may not be well received by all.  

Higher government spending also comes with larger deficits and debts.   

I am sure that once the Biden regime is in full swing that Republicans will re-discover fiscal conservatism (the rhetoric at the least) and implicitly renounce their current Marxist-Keynesian fiscal policy position.
