Our collective agencies are working closely together and remain vigilant to respond to potential threats that may occur anywhere in the state, including the Capitol. Collectively, we maintain strong relationships with our security and intelligence partners at the local, state, and federal levels and are continually monitoring and sharing information about possible emerging threats to the state.

Together, our role is to safeguard lives and property and ensure that California remains a safe place for those who live, work, and travel within the state while ensuring the ability of individuals and groups to lawfully exercise their First Amendment rights.

For security and safety reasons the agencies will not be commenting further on specific matters involving local preparedness plans or personnel deployment.

Yesterday, we were listening to an interview with an expert about what could happen in the short future, during and after after the inauguration. Especially with twitter and Facebook having taken down over 60,000 accounts already, conservative ones. He told MSNBC that in all probability they will go underground, and communicate on very hidden sites, or use other methods, like earth radios. He said they will organize, and be vigilant about the actions of congress and the president. You will not know who they are, and they will maintain their cohesiveness in secret. But, he said, they will act. how and when, he does not know. In this recent event last wed, there was a great deal of chatter with violent overtones, and speech of insurrection. It is how they have caught so many already. He said this will not be the case next time, there will be no warning. I wish I could remember his name, he was very serious. one more thing I can remember;, they consider Antifa and anarchists mortal enemies, and he thinks they have extensive lists of who they are, where they live, where they work. i am so glad I live 30 miles from… Read more »

We never mentioned Q-Anon, nor did he. I think the number was on TV, thank you for the correction. I never understood the pizza for kids thing or whatever it was. It was on the radio, and I was doing my scratchers, I must have misunderstood. I would never belong to such a group. We would never go to a protest or march. We like to participate in positive things, like helping the Salvation Army, and other such groups who help people. No Antifa or Proud Boy march has helped anyone. Wall Mart fed 7 million people last year for free with volunteers to help distribute the food. Helping start and maintain community gardens to lower the food worry or have enough to eat is far more important than spitting on and hitting one another. Truly these activities are done by very stupid people, people who do not posses the IQ a grasshoppers asshole has. Perhaps these two groups could embrace this commonality, a grasshoppers asshole, and learn to enjoy each others company. Oops, I said learn. They are too stupid to learn.

You didn’t mention QAnon, but you, perhaps mistakenly, conflated the Q accounts being cut with “conservativess”.

That is something I have seen elsewhere. remarkably, there are a lot of actual conservative voices out there. Don’t fall into that trap, though. The recent whining by leading Trumpers (including Trump) crying that Conservatives are being silenced, when it is the nutbars that are getting the axe.

That is a form of gaslighting.

But doesn’t it make you feel like you might be stepping over the line to actively search people’s accounts for evidence of wrongdoing without prior indication there’s a problem

No, I don’t think that looking through public information is wrong, especially when it is evident that a systemic problem exists.

I want to how many deputies subscribe to Q and promote it, I want to know who supports Start the Steal events.

In a press release trying to reaffirm that we as a State are safe, I’m curious: What is actually happening to make sure of that?

I would put any deputy that went to the Start the Steal insurrection on leave pending investigation.

There is merit.

I’m not talking about firing some guy that wore a MAGA cap in one pic, I’m talking about the extremists of Start the Steal, Proud Boys, Boogaloos, Q and more.

It is of crucial importance for the community to know if our local LEOs are conspiracy driven white supremacists working to overthrow the US Government. The GEO tracking data from the Parler data dump already shows there are some individuals in our area who are participatory. With Sheriff Honsal already spreading QAnon based conspiracy theories over the summer this is an absolutely critical question to have answered. I would also note that the FBI has been warning for ever a decade about violent far-right extremists infiltrating law enforcement nation wide. Generally I deeply appreciate the reporting you do for the community, but in this instance your attitude is very concerning. It should be paramount for our local reporters to be investigating to what level, if any, our local LEOs are sedition supporting terrorists.

Here is the bottom line. NO ONE has the right to tell us how to live, who and how to worship, what books to read or have our children read, like Huckleberry Finn, how many guns we can have, or ammo, be republican or democrat. As long as people do not try to impose their beliefs on others, they can be Antifa, Nazis, and everything in between. If you are in an eatery , no one has the right to interfere with you, or scream at you to say her name. NO ONE. NO ONE has the right to tell us what school our children have to go to. No one has the right to impose a tax, after we buy something, again. We do not have to be group think people, we are individuals, and think for ourselves. We do not have to follow the narrative others want to impose on us. In our freedom schools, the 10 most banned books in public high schools are required reading.

That’s some bullshit right there.

First, the seditionist Capital siege was promoted by many groups who are not fringe, including the President.

Second: one terrorist was shot dead that you mention, but you dont even mention officer Brian Sicknick who was killed by another terrorist.

Third: over 50 officers were injured, not ’14’.

4th: let’s do some math.

730 hours per month.
730 x 7 (BLM riot months)
Over 5,100 hours.

700 injured officers ÷ 5100 hours = 0.13 officers hurt per hour @ BLM.

(But I bet less were injured as your facts are biased and wrong.

50 officers hurt ÷ 3 hours of siege =
16.6 officers attacked per hour @ Trumps coup

Cops killed by BLM in 7 months: 0

Cops killed by seditionist traitors in 3 hours:1

5100 (BLM protest hours) ÷ 3 (Coup hours) =1,700.

1,700 x Brian Sicknick = 1,700 Sicknicks.

This country was indeed founded by very devout Christian people who left England because of persecution. The US Constitution was written based on the same Christian values. The left has made a mockery of the Country and its values for over 2 decades, trying to dissolve these values. Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Demonocrats in Congress has gone so far they are clearly demon possessed. They have even gotten a few RINOs to join their side. Their demonic chants call for “unity.” What they really mean is if we don’t join their Satanic Cult they will persecute us into submission. Nancy claims to believe in god, but her god is indeed the devil as well as her disciples.
She will not win. There will never be unity, because true US Patriots will not allow her kind of unity. I just hope and pray she and her evil culties give up before she leads the Country to either a second civil war or the world to WWIII.

As someone who has actual Mayflower ancestors this argument always makes me laugh (a few of them, my ancestors, were outright assholes). Firstly, you are ignoring all early English settlements that aren’t the Puritans/Pilgrims. Jamestown and other colonies weren’t the same and were business ventures.

Secondly, I am sort of glad that the “Christian Values” of the Puritans/Pilgrims have faded. The Salem witch trials being a great example of things to not aspire to bringing back. Though that kind of madness can be seen today in QAnon.

Not to mention the Quakers who were executed. And other “Christian” farkery.

And the myth that the Founding Fathers founded the nation on Christian values is a retcon of the Enlightenment based thinking of many of the Founders. Some were, some certainly were not, giving a nod to the “creator” at best.

History is complicated. I know that doesn’t lend itself to quick one sentence slogans, though. Sorry about that.

“The US Constitution was written based on the same Christian values.”

Really? Which ones? Can you highlight something in one of the Articles of Confederation that supports your view?

“Around the time of the Revolutionary War, most American Christians belonged to Anglican, Congregationalist, or Presbyterian groups. In 1776, there were also around 2,000 Jews (mostly Sephardic) and five synagogues in the colonies. The average size of a church congregation was around seventy-five members, and religious adherence amounted to only 17 percent of the total population.” — excerpt from article on religion in 1776 by Maria Mayo, M. Div., PhD.

The Anglicans in particular were often loyalists to the King — their clergy had to swear an oath to the King.

The document itself is decidedly secular in nature — it’s the rules for governing the country, one of which explicitly states the separation of church and state.

Article 6 of the Constitution also includes this: “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

So your argument appears to be unsupported by actual evidence.

A large part of the philosophy behind the Declaration of Independence and subsequent founding documents is very Christian in that we all have a soul and a connection to the divine. This was revolutionary in that previous governments handed down “rights” through a monarch or pope or ome other divine figurehead. We have Natural rights that supercede any government, any document or any person.

I don’t doubt that Christian philosophy played a role, albeit a minor one in the founding documents. But there is evidence that the founding fathers deliberately avoided specific religious connotations because of the tight association between the Anglican church and the English royalty (as well as between the Catholic Church and various European royals).

In the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796 John Adams wrote “The Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.” And he was one of the people who helped write it so he should probably know.

Gotta disagree. Christian philosophy played a tremendous role as it was what infused the whole culture. Fortunately the Founders seperated those ideas from the Church and expressed those ideals as God-given or Natural Rights without monopoly from any religion.

I’m a heathen, too. Religion, long term, has been largely a failure and drag on civilization. We do have some wonderful religious folks. Some great essays have emanated from the local Episcopalian church of late. I honor their commitment to the LOVE of Christ rather than fealty to lunatic Trump.

The Founders knew that religious strife and insanity were a source of evil, so they went out of their way to separate church and state. Christianity was essentially a blood bath as Charlemagne spread Christianity by the sword throughout Europe in the ninth century. The bloodbath continued against Jews and Muslims for centuries thereafter., with thousands burned to death or put to the rack for the love of Christ. The Founders may have been largely Christian, but they knew religion had a down-side. To this day, we see people as diverse as Roy Moore and William Barr actively trying to drive their spirits-and-demons mentality down our throats.

My point is, I guess, I don’t take the word of any media source. I want Mr Biden to actually say to the American public what his policies will be. He has unlimited TV networks willing to give him seemingly unlimited screen time, yet he hasn’t spoken. He has dodged more questions than there are liberal draft dodgers. Just have Washington DC quit the BS and let him speak, without his VP taking over.

The concern with any large website is that it is run by a group of people. I’ve emailed many political leaders. Many times I have received a reply. I suspect, however, there is a crew of people set up to reply and seriously doubt I have ever actually received a message from the person I emailed. That’s why I want to actually hear it spoken in real time. I just don’t generally trust anything online or in print without a lot of evidence it is true.

I’m not sure Biden even knows he has a website.
He can barely read his teleprompter.
He never answers a question not pre scripted.

One of the things I love most about Humboldt is how the hippies and the cowboys get together and drink beer and trade each other’s produce in the fall.

The Mattole Grange is the greatest place on earth at that time. Everyone sharing and sampling each other’s bounty.

Roll on, Mattole. Them folks get it figured out.

Sorry your team lost. Maybe you should get a better coach and try again next season.

Here is a question I pose to anyone who wants to philosophize with me.

Would Hitler and the NAZI party have found it easier or harder to rise to power with the internet?

I find my thoughts leaning towards a quicker rise of power, yet a potentially quicker end to his reign due to a potentially more informed and unified resistance.

I tend to believe everything sped up with the internet. I’ve heard the antique market was greatly affected. Things people once thought were extremely rare started to be common reducing their value. I’m pretty sure the Revolutionary War would have been faster too and the outcome? The internet is far faster than a ship at crossing the Atlantic! And just look how human trafficking changed with technology just as another example.

We disagree on virtually everything, but I would like to say thanks for your response. I think it’s an interesting thought excersize.

You are right about disagreeing most of the time, but most of the time you disagree with thought without insult which goes a long way. You also think things through pretty thoroughly.

I appreciate that, and you opening up is a good reminder to me to try to be better civilly, it is my biggest fault here. Kudos to us both.

I recieved a call from Samantha @ HCSO.

She recommended a 15 minute interview of the sheriff @ KMUD.

They have reviewed deputies time off around the inauguration, acknowledging that “time off around those dates does not necessarily mean they were at the Capital”.

The SO is “confident” none of it’s deputies were at the siege.

Ultimately I am thoroughly impressed by the callback and answers. I’m a nobody and that was incredible public communication.

Thanks Samantha!

Of course, these concerns of mine are not mine alone and not without merit nationally – and locally:

I guess parrots aren’t extinct, yet;
“witch hunt”

On another note, I mentioned
a few days ago that this arrest was imminent :
