The PBS NewsHour live stream is pretty good, they have Yamiche Alcindor on right now speaking some good stuff

uspol 

oh fuck. unconfirmed reports on TV of someone being shot in the Capitol

uspol 

"reports that people are rummaging through Senators' desks" (PBS)

uspol 

Just watched some dudes use a police shield to break through a window at the capitol and climb in

uspol 

hahahaha PBS anchor just accidentally revealed an off-the-record source, a high up military official whose name and position I did not catch

Yamiche is back on the PBS feed, always worth tuning in for her pscp.tv/w/1ypJdgMEwOrGW

uspol, gun violence 

Friend-of-friend in the neighborhood of the Capitol building reporting shots fired outside her home, "Proud Boys are roaming around with guns, and the police said lots of similar calls are coming in"

uspol, twitter video 

Video that seems to show cops just opening the barricades and allowing the rioters in twitter.com/moonddng/status/13

@darius This European here doesn't understand how something can even happen! Like do they really grap power through this? https://twitter.com/byaaroncdavis/status/1346908166030766080

@eest9 one of my friends with close ties to DC politics says that the reason for the thing you are linking is that the city of Washington DC doesn't have jurisdiction over the Capitol itself, so they were kind of asking for something they technically couldn't get

(it's weird)

re: uspol 

@darius saw video of person on stretcher being removed to ambulance from msnbc feed

re: uspol 

@djsundog @darius I hear the ABC news anchors mention shots fired in the Capitol. I didn't see the stretcher, but did see the ambulance being closed up ready to depart.

uspol 

@darius that just made my heart sink, the look on her face

uspol 

@darius confirmed that Darius and I are watching the same live video

uspol 

@darius just finding a bunch of covid-tainted jellybeans

uspol 

@darius my polish-canadian wife who is currently in the US with me made a weird sound when she overheard that line

any idea of any other news sources for this? Though quite frankly I shouldn't look but

uspol 

@Truck I unfortunately only have this one

uspol 

@darius This is ok. Your other feeds of PBS and CSPAN are... well... less likely to be garbage. And I'm fairly sure I can get info from the BBC, or ... well Finnish news will cover it and maybe I'd better just be sure I can read that.

@whoisgina @darius new type of guy just dropped

uspol, twitter photo 

@courtney @darius i saw a better photo of this guy on twitter that ideally i'll never find again but uh...he has pretty sick face paint

uspol, twitter photo 

@darius That's the "Q Shaman", a known figure in the QAnon movement or whatever you want to call that.

uspol, twitter video 

@darius god i just sent this to britt with a string of 300 consonants

uspol, twitter video 

@jeffcutsinger not to split hairs but I'm from DC and that looks like the Lincoln Memorial

uspol, twitter video 

@darius Well, it's important. Maybe it's misleading, but it doesn't say the Capitol *building* in the tweet. And arguably that makes it worse since the Memorial isn't a seat of power. But point well taken.

uspol, twitter photo 

@darius I fuckin hate this guy the most out of every insurgent there

re: uspol, twitter photo 

@somarasu @darius

The layers in which he angers me are innumerable.

re: uspol, twitter photo 

@thegibson @somarasu @darius he brought a smaller american flag in to pose with

uspol 

@darius I saw video of it on NBC- absolutely sickening to see.

uspol, actually decent news feed 

@darius thanks, this is great

re: uspol, actually decent news feed 

@darius
