DHS: ‘No Insurrection Here, No Siree!’

H/T Scissorhead Skinny-D

As Shakespeare once said, Something is rotten in Denmark, er, DHS:

`No major incidents of illegal activity`: DHS told Pentagon as pro-Trump mob breached Capitol

On Jan. 6, more than 30 minutes after the first attackers breached barricades erected to protect the Capitol, the Department of Homeland Security sent an incongruous update to the Pentagon.

Incongruous is one word for it; incompetent is another. Do continue:

“There are no major incidents of illegal activity at this time,” read an internal Army email sent to senior leaders at 1:40 p.m. that day, referring to an update the service had just received from DHS’s National Operations Center.

You may recall that Chad Wolf was Hair Füror’s Acting Secretary of Homeland Security in November 2019. In November 2020, a federal court ruled his appointment unlawful and overturned a set of his orders as lacking “legal authority”. Wolf resigned on January 11, 2021. You know, AFTER the Stupid Coup. Oddly, Politico’s article does not mention Chad Wolf’s name. Not even once.

The Pentagon has faced scorching criticism for taking hours to deploy National Guard units to the Capitol. But the glaring omission, detailed in an email obtained through a public records request, provides new information about inaccurate communications the Defense Department received as the day’s horrors unfolded. And it heightens concerns about the role of DHS, established in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, as pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol, and the department’s ability to respond to crises.

You can draw your own conclusions.

    Most RWNJ’s will tell you that they were just a bunch of tourists touring the Capitol Building. They were simply there to witness part of the process of the peaceful transfer of power. You know, republicans.

    Incongruous; incompetent, or supporting the insurrection?
    This proves that some Americans will help other Americans attack America.
    Allegedly.

  4. I would go with criminal, rather than ‘incompetient’ or ‘incongruous’ This was clearly meant to keep the Pentagon from sending re0inforcments until Mikey had been hangs and Nancy had been ‘shot in the friggin brain’ as [checks notes] one member of the attempted coup said after climbing through a broken window into the Capitol. Yesterday that person plead guilty to [checks notes] misdemeanor ‘illegally demonstrating’. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/legal-issues/pelosi-threat-dawn-bancroft-plea/2021/09/28/d2f0bbb8-209b-11ec-9309-b743b79abc59_story.html
