The 117th Congress: Guns, Tribes & Getting Mobbed-Up : The Hand Grenade

The 117th Congress: Guns, Tribes & Getting Mobbed-Up

by Webster Bernell Brooks lll on 01/30/21

Three weeks after the January 6, "MAGA Coup" attempt, the new 117th Congress is an active war zone. 

Donald Trump's white nationalist terror syndicate and Nancy Pelosi's, AKA, "Power Nana," California-based family are "going to the mattresses."  

On Friday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Green (MTG) and Rep. Cori Bush's sharp verbal exchange over MTG not wearing a face mask went viral. Come on. We all know what time it is. If MTG wanted to make a go of it, Cori would have smacked her into the next zip code. But Cori didn't take the bait, and she damn sure isn't trying to get COVID-19. 

Instead, Bush moved her office and staff to avoid another dust up, but this is an alarming indicator of how far things are spiraling out of control at the Capitol.   

If you thought things would cool down after the deadly January 6, assault on the U.S. Capitol, think again. Two Republican congressman were stopped trying to bring guns on the House chambers floor. Another GOP congressperson is under investigation for taking January 6, riot participants on a reconnaissance tour of the Capitol layout the day before the insurrection.  

The FBI is investigating several Republican congressional members with high profile ties to white nationalists groups: the Three-Percenters, The Oath Keepers, Q-anon and the Proud Boys, whose Afro-Cuban leader was unmasked last week as an FBI informant.        

As for MTG--the "The QAnon Lady,"--events escalated this week when it was revealed in January 2019, her Facebook page posted a "like" to a comment calling for "a bullet to the head" of Speaker Pelosi. That prompted some Democrats to call for her expulsion from the House. 

Pelosi, still pissed off that Trump's stormtroopers sent a hit-team to "neutralize" her on January 6, called for more money for Capitol security enhancements. Reimbursements for forty members who purchased bulletproof vests have been approved, and other members are requesting personal security details. "Power Nana" said the security measures had to be taken to deal with "the enemy within."    

Clearly, Marjorie Taylor-Greene was out of her depth when she crossed swords with hard-hitting Rep. Cori Bush. But endorsing a Facebook contract on "Power Nana's" life, took things to a whole new level." 

Apparently, 'shorty' from Milledgeville, Georgia, doesn't know who she's f---king with. "Power Nana," is the daughter of Thomas "Big Tommy" D' Alesandro Jr. 

"Big Tommy was elected to the U.S. Congress representing Baltimore from 1938-47, and mayor from 1947-59. He was a major player connected to New York's Lucchese crime family operatives Luigi Morichi, Tommy Carbo, and the Corbi brothers. "Big Tommy" served as a front man and contract fixer with businesses and unions in exchange for kickbacks.

How big was Pelosi's father?" In 1961, when President Kennedy complained that D' Alesandro needed to be investigated for contract deals that blocked his administration's federal negotiating efforts, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover told Kennedy to "forget about it." 

MTG may want to think twice before becoming a stone in "Power Nana's" shoe. Nancy ain't Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden: she's the apple that didn't fall far from "Big Tommy's" tree.                
 
Now obviously, New Black Nationalists are trying to inject a modicum of levity into a serious and escalating situation. But despite 2,000 Capitol police, several thousand National Guardsmen ringing the capitol, metal detectors, and state of the art electronic surveillance, the capitol complex and its 535 congressional members are on edge. 

Since the civil war's opening shot was fired on January 6, the back-and-forth between Trump's sycophants and Democrats shows no signs of abating. Quite the opposite, tension is sharpening in Congress as Republicans have overwhelmingly endorsed insurrection, and coup plotting as legitimate forms of opposition. Thus, the GOP has officially declared itself to be an instrument of white nationalists authoritarian rule. 

On Thursday, House Republican minority leader Kevin McCarthy, flew to MAGASTAN's exile government headquarters at Mar a Largo in West Palm Beach, to kiss Trump's ring. If he can't discipline MTG for endorsing the execution of the Speaker of the House, then America is certainly moving down a path that can only end in civil war.       

With Trump's impeachment trial for "Incitement to Insurrection" scheduled to begin the week of February 8, a Homeland Security directive warned that Trump's white nationalist legions are preparing for further attacks. Five-thousand National Guard will remain in Washington, D.C.   

Two weeks ago, New Black Nationalist noted that for the first time in modern American history, the security state under Biden's administration has an open national mandate to smash significant sectors of violent white supremist movements. 

Protecting and holding these racist mercenaries in reserve, until they are needed to put "uppity" Black people back in their place, has been the standard operating procedure. But, as the Black Lives Matter 2.0 protests in the summer of 2020 demonstrated, the days of terrorizing Black people into submission are over. 

We are anxious see what "Fighting Joe," who supported locking up millions of Black people in the 90's, is going to do now with these violent white nationalists scum.   

As of January 26, approximately 150 riot participants have been arrested on charges from disorderly conduct to conspiracy to riot. Interestingly enough, the Q-Anon Shamon dressed in fur skins and a horned helmet, the "zip tie guy" who propelled into the Senate chambers with plastic handcuffs, the woman who stole a laptop from Pelosi's office, and the armed wingnut who sat in Pelosi's chair, ransacked and stole a document from her desk, were all released by local authorities when they returned home. They were only detained when federal judges in Washington, D.C., overrode local judges decisions allowing them to roam the streets. 

New Black Nationalists also raised the question if violent white nationalists would be going underground, to step up their campaign of protracted asymmetric warfare against the U.S. government. The "Accelerationist" trend among white nationalists are committed to this path as a strategy of speeding up the internal crisis and collapse of American Empire. 

Based on the response we have witnessed thus far, violent white nationalists will likely continue to have a robust public presence. They feel emboldened. When Trump is found not guilty in his second impeachment trial, they will feel even more emboldened. Indeed, many of them are biding their time, waiting for the next green light from MAGASTAN headquarters in South Florida to go into action. 

Just as alarming is the fact a number of riot participants were ex-military personnel. That is a dangerous sign of the potential for significant sections of the military to back a future right-wing white nationalist coup. As we learned last week, it took the U.S, military three hours to respond to the Capitol Police request for support.      

We fully expect a growing underground white nationalist movement to  increasingly engage in terrorism and destabilizing actions. As one commentator put it, "We could be headed for a period in which the U.S. looks and feels like Northern Ireland three decades ago.   

The fights, skirmishes, and melodramas unfolding in Congress in Washington, D.C., may appear to be somewhat petty and pedestrian on the surface. People avoiding metal detectors, trying to sneak guns on the floor of Congress, and tweeting about executions of public officials sounds like adolescent teenagers with too much time on their hands. It's not.

They are signs that we have a entered a new period: the opening stages of the civil war to come.
