You may have heard of recently elected Lauren Opal Boebert: a COVID clown and QAnon freak who opposed mail voting and carries a gun around DC.
During the terrorist seige on the capitol building, she was actively tweeting out Nancy Pelosi’s location. When security was trying to evacuate Pelosi to a safe location.
There are multiple tweets.
The Speaker has been removed from the chambers.

Forget profanities, I’m tempted to say something about her that other FtB members wouldn’t tolerate.
More from Daily Kos:
Multiple reports have FBI documents warning of far-right violence in the coming days. An internal FBI bulletin obtained by ABC News says every state capitol in addition to the U.S. Capitol could be targeted between now and Inauguration Day. State, local, and federal courthouses and buildings are also under threat.
“The FBI received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January,” according to the bulletin. “They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment, a huge uprising will occur.”
I’ve seen multiple places claiming that the next attack won’t be solely in DC – it will be a “50 state strategy” aimed at every state’s capital.
This one is beyond my skill level. Marcus Ranum would be better qualified to talk about the details. Short version: the clowns running parler were so inept they made it easy to create admin passwords without legitimate access. The entirety of parler’s data has been downloaded – names, emails, phone numbers, the lot. The question is, who has it?
If there’s going to be anything that turns the Republican Party away from Donald Trump and forces it to abandon its effort to reignite a civil war, it’s the growing abandonment of their big donors. In all sectors—health care, financial services, hospitality, retail—major corporations are cutting off the Republicans they previously supported, specifically the 147 House and Senate Republicans who voted to overturn the presidential election.
Facebook, Google, BlackRock, Marriott, and Dow were among the largest and first companies to announce they were either suspending donations to those lawmakers for this cycle, or cutting them off completely. Marriott, the largest hotel chain in the world, said it was suspending donations to the 147 because of “the destructive events at the Capitol to undermine a legitimate and fair election.” The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association—knowing what the current Democratic Congress might very well have in store for them—is also going to end contributions “to those lawmakers who voted to undermine our democracy.” That includes, by the way, House Republican leadership Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise.
Just like pornhub a month ago, the republiclowns are only paying attention now that they’re being cut off from money. “Corporate america” is speaking, and they said no more. They should have known what the last four years were leading to, but at least they’re speaking up. And unlike politicians jumping ship, corporations benefit from fascist regimes, so to do this speaks volumes.
