National Security Expert: The Capitol attack appears to have been planned in advance

A national security expert from the Center for Security Policy  tells in minute detail what he witnessed on January 6th when he arrived at the US Capitol.


Before you even read this incredible account, here (below), is author Michael Waller’s bio.  I know some of the experts at the Center and in fact met Donald Trump in 2015 when he was considering his run for the White House and I was a speaker at a conference put on by the Center for Security Policy in Iowa.

I’m giving you Waller’s bio first, so you know he isn’t just a casual Trump fan who happened to attend the rally, but is an expert in security.

And, by the way, his account matches reports I have had from friends of mine who were at the Capitol on that fateful afternoon.

J. Michael Waller is Senior Analyst for Strategy at the Center for Security Policy. His areas of concentration are propaganda, political warfare, psychological warfare, and subversion. He is the former Walter and Leonore Annenberg Professor of International Communication at the Institute of World Politics, a graduate school in Washington, DC. A former instructor with the Naval Postgraduate School, he is an instructor/lecturer at the John F Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg.

Covert Cadre: What I saw leading up to the US Capitol attack


The deadly riot at the US Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the January 6 joint session of Congress.

A small number of cadre used the cover of a huge rally to stage its attack. Before it began, I saw from my vantage point on the West Front of the Capitol, what appeared to be four separate cells or units:

  1. Plainclothes militants. Militant, aggressive men in Trump and MAGA gear at a front police line at the base of the temporary presidential inaugural platform;
  2. Agents-provocateurs. Scattered groups of men exhorting the marchers to gather closely and tightly toward the center of the outside of the Capitol building and prevent them from leaving;
  3. Fake Trump protesters. A few young men wearing Trump or MAGA hats backwards and who did not fit in with the rest of the crowd in terms of their actions and demeanor, whom I presumed to be Antifa or other leftist agitators; and
  4. Disciplined, uniformed column of attackers. A column of organized, disciplined men, wearing similar but not identical camouflage uniforms and black gear, some with helmets and GoPro cameras or wearing subdued Punisher skull patches.

All of these cells or groups stood out from the very large crowd by their behavior and overall demeanor. However, they did not all appear at the same time. Not until the very end did it become apparent there was a prearranged plan to storm the Capitol building, and to manipulate the unsuspecting crowd as cover and as a follow-on force.

Continue reading.  It is long but riveting!

It is especially mind-blowing to consider that President Trump was impeached today (again) because our security apparatus failed us and the lives and well-being of tens of thousands of Patriots who had come to peacefully protest were jeopardized.

And, it surely will go down in the history books as a cataclysmic intelligence failure, although not as deadly as the attack on the Twin Towers, but in many ways more impactful for the future of the United States of America.    

How is it that the FBI and law enforcement did not see this coming?

Or, did they?

  1. Since 9/11, Washington DC has become the most thoroughly surveilled, security-intensive city on Earth. The Capitol police, DC police, Secret Service, FBI, and other alphabet soup security agencies undoubtedly train and re-train for every terrorist contingency or breach. They have to be prepared for Al-Qaida-type operations on DC’s federal institutions, correct? And most assuredly at a Joint Session of Congress. And likely every superstar in private security and counter-measures is under contract to the federal government for consulting. Yet, with all that, we are expected to believe that a rag-tag bunch of 100 or so civilians with MAGA hats breached security and established a position within the Capitol Rotunda? Just not possible. If this doesn’t fail the smell test, nothing does.

    1. I don’t know why people think it can’t be done. There is video tape of large BLM protest going on, all the sudden you see a group of say 50 or more people. stop. All the sudden a circle is formed. Almost like to shield the others inside. All the sudden the people within the circle that were dressed like regular BLM Protesters, strip. Underneath they have all black clothing. They dig into their back packs get out black gloves, face coverings, weapons, bags of weapons, they are being fed weapons by others in the crowd, It happened at the protest where they were using the high tech lasers, and has the umbrellas to shield themselves from the police after they were throwing frozen bottles of water, cocktails, but the umbrellas were altered at the end to a very sharp point to stab the officers with. Can’t remember where it was. I want to say Portland , hmm not sure but if you googled professional lasers used at BLM protest. Because they weren’t sure if some of the officers were permanently blind in one eye or vision loss, etc. But I do remember several officers that day were hurt badly.

  2. A video was released that showed (supposedly) Nancy Pelosi’s son-in-law in gear that was animal costume from head to body parts. True or false?
