On Thursday, during a hearing in the chamber, Congressman Troy Nehls of Texas called out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the January 6 Committee for failing to prepare appropriately for the safety and security of the Nation’s Capitol in 2020.
During a roughly 3-minute speech from the House floor, Nehls referred to an internal intelligence briefing from January 3, 2020, in which federal intelligence agents warned of the impending violence and possible protests that would occur just three days later.
“Congress itself is the target” as a “worry-some call for violence” has been identified, and a “possibility that protestors may be inclined to become violent,” he read from the briefing. The briefing said that there was concern the day’s events would attract “white supremacists” and “militia members,” who, the memo said, “actively promote violence.”
Ultimately it conveyed the day’s events may lead to a “significantly dangerous situation for law enforcement and the general public alike.”

The stark warning was issued just days before the January 6 riots at the capitol; a notice shared with the U.S. Capitol Police .
Nehls asked the Speaker, “So, why didn’t they request the National Guard?” He was referring to the U.S. Capitol Police, tasked with guarding the nation’s capital and preserving peace.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
