Patriots Seize US Capitol

Patriots Seize US Capitol

US Capitol

Patriots have breached the protective barricade around the US Capitol as the joint session of Congress convened to count electoral votes that would officially make Democrat Joe Biden the next president despite widespread accusations of voter fraud.

Images from inside the US capitol are showing what appears to be an armed stand-off between police and Trump supporters at the door to the chamber of the House of Representatives.

Capitol Police have locked off the Senate chamber and have guns drawn as protesters are pounding on the doors and reportedly vandalizing the building.

As Vice President Mike Pence opened the joint session of the Senate and the House of Representatives in Washington, DC on Wednesday, the Patriots outside pressed against the police holding the perimeter fence on Capitol Hill.

Bearing US flags, the protesters gathered outside the westward-facing steps of the Capitol.

Inside, a number of Republican lawmakers have said they would object to certifying election results from half a dozen states where many have alleged fraud and irregularities. Minutes before opening the joint session of Congress, however, Pence said he did not believe he had the authority to unilaterally throw out electoral votes, as some hoped he might do.

US President Donald Trump has doubled down on his conviction that his political nemeses stole his rightful victory in November. In a rally outside the White House, the president declared he will “never concede.”

Trump delivered his remarks in front of a large crowd of supporters, many of whom were in Washington for the ‘Save America’ rally to protest the allegedly stolen election.

We will never give up, we will never concede,” the president said. “You don’t concede when there’s theft.”

Trump continued to go after the vote-counting, declaring it “so corrupt that in the history of this country we’ve never seen anything like it.” He likened the sudden spike in Biden votes on Election Day night to “explosions of bulls**t,” then mocked failed candidates including Mitt Romney (R-UT) and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
