Governor Hogan (R-Md) explains what really happened when the rioters attacked the Capitol
Maryland's requests to deploy National Guard to Capitol were repeatedly denied

I've been following this story closely, but all the news coverage I saw never said why law enforcement did such a terrible job in containing the rioters. (Especially strange because as our nation's capitol they frequently deal with all sorts demonstrations-- and have for decades).

I've never seen many of these facts in all the other news coverage of this that I saw. But finally, after watching this video, I understood what actually happened.

There's lot of info-- including the "bombshell he dropped" on the topic of Trump. But unfortunately you have to watch the entire video to learn all the facts.

P.S. I couldn't get the video to embed and the versions on Youtube have omitted important parts of it, so if you want to see it you have to click on the link to the article)

Related: here's a seed about another politician who's also taken a strong stand for the highest values. (And  also a Republican):

I was able to watch the whole video as it was not a YouTube, and I can see why a State that is blue would keep the Republican Hogan as their Governor.  What I believe from what I hear is that it was Trump himself who most likely told his toady Secretary of Defense to hold off providing permission for the Maryland National Guard to proceed.  It fits with Pence's refusal to accept Pelosi's phone call about the 25th Amendment.  Why should I NOT believe it - after all, Trump INSTIGATED the insurrection.  What a sorry POS Trump is. 

In light of all this, what surprises me the most is that there are members of NT who STILL support Trump.  I do not disagree with all conservative views, I have some myself and in fact have been a supporter of the Canadian and Ontario Conservative Parties for the past 40 years, yet still accept that Trudeau is my Prime Minister. and I agree with the fact that the Republicans should have the right to provide the checks and balances to Biden's policies.  There is nothing wrong with being a conservative and defending conservative policies but what is beyond my comprehension is that ANYONE WITH A BRAIN IN HIS HEAD AND ANY COMMON SENSE WHATSOEVER CAN STILL, AT THIS POINT, SUPPORT TRUMP.,

I was impressed with how passionate he felt about the desecration of the invaders and his contempt for Trump.

Based on Gov. Hogan's timeline report, sounds like Trump had nothing to do with FINALLY getting approval for the National Guard deployment.

video is just under 19 minutes, informative watch.

You don’t call the Trump administration, you wait for him to call you to demand your assistance in whatever suits his personal desires.

On a side note, I watched this last night and, like always, I couldn’t even concentrate on what Hogan was saying because of that sign language guy.  That was some of the most sarcastic looking stuff I’ve ever seen.  It’s hard to believe that that is a serious way of communicating.

Mocking any disability is now taboo.

NOW?!?!?!?!? It NEVER should be and never should have been acceptable to mock a disability or a person with a disability.

It is difficult to choose the very worst things Trump has done. There are so many, but mocking someone with a disability has got to be way up near the top. I think he did this even before he was elected. Trump is the very worst of humanity.

I do my best to avoid being hateful... but I gotta admit, I hate Trump. 

Mocking any disability is a bad thing for a sophomoric junior high looser. But a grown man... the President of the United States... it is beyond comprehension... and it is beyond my comprehension that he was actually elected. Worse yet, that after all he has done, I fail to understand why 74 million people still think he is just what they want. That makes evident that there is deep deep trouble in America.

Often people tend to over-generalize-- for example, stereotyping all Republicans-- or all Democrats as have identical opinions. But of course that's an inaccurate and misleading way to look at things.

(I wish had more politicians like Gov. Hogan!!!)

This independent centrist worries about extremists from the far right and far left.

Used to be in the SDS and knew weather folk as a kid. They went too far at times.

All extremists who operate under emotion rather than logic tend to go too far. 

Trump's sub 100 IQ minions that he sent to attack congress were all fascist tools.

Yet another of the many crimes Trump will be prosecuted for after 1/20.

I used to be quite an activist in those days.I never actually joined the SDS, but knew a lot of them. Worked together with them and on some issues...Also with people in the  SPU (Student Peace Union) WRL (War Resisters League). SNCC, CORE (Core was much more radical back then )And the Quakers.

IIRC The Weatherman were really a bit nuts...

I had always thought Dylan's "You don't have to be a weatherman to know which way the wind blows" was inspired by the actual group The Weatherman-- but it might be just the opposite?

This phrase is famously used in  Subterranean Homesick Blues by Bob Dylan. The metaphor itself is so simple and powerful I'm sure it would've been a proverb by now had we weather forecasts a couple of hundred years ago. Now imagine my surprise when I learned that Dylan apparently coined the phrase himself ( Read it all)

I think its pretty certain he didn't. 

In fact it was his chief sycophant over at the defense Dept.that deliberately refused permission for Hogan to send in the Guard.

After listening to this, it seems blatant that "someone" wanted the rioters to overrun the Capitol. 

It simply is not possible for career law enforcement officers to be incompetent to this extent.

I hope the FBI is still seaworthy.

Now that he's told the truth about Trump, I'm wondering if Trump is going to start perpetrating another of his Big Lies-- and if he will now claim that Hogan's election was marked by fraud?

Perhaps initiate a lawsuit attempting to have Hogan's last election over-turned?

I used to buy supplies as opposed to brokering them, anyway a Vendor on the Chesapeake used to send me crab cakes from G&M Restaurant in Linthicum Heights MD, on the Patapsco, right off 895

I just looked them up and the 8oz crab cake is $20 but the shipping is almost as much as the food order.

They were the best.
