We came mere minutes from losing our freedoms, from living under the thumb of a dictator, just as the people in Cuba, in Russia, and in North Korea. The idea appears to be so fantastical we cannot quite get our minds around it. But we must fight our natural inclination to turn away. We must do our part by calling out its truth.

The people sitting in the House of Representatives, those in the Senate, and the President of these United States all take an oath to protect us from “foreign or domestic’ attackers. The members of the military do, too, as do the Capitol police. And yet on January 6, only a relatively few Americans lived up to their oaths:
The Lincoln Project’s newest powerful ad Which Side draws a chilling comparison between the terrorists possessed by a twisted ideology that Osama bin Laden sent forth to destroy America’s “temple of democracy” and Donald Trump’s twisted insurrectionists.
Never before has one of our nation’s presidents sent his terrorists in to overthrow our country’s democracy:
‘The plot was an attack on the temple of America’s democracy by a handful of people who followed a sick corrupt policy promoted by a charismatic leader. One obsessed with grievances and conspiracy theories.’
‘Driven by fear to take the innocent lives for their leaders. A handful of Americans with nothing in common but bravery and love for our nation answered their call to courage, to protect us all.’
‘There have only been two large-scale attacks on America in recent history. The first was by Al Qaeda on September 11, 2001. The attack on January 6 was ordered by an American president.’
‘[I]mpulsive, mentally unstable and unbalanced individual who suffers from an inferiority complex.’
Finally, The Lincoln Project asked the most important question of all:
‘Where do you stand? With the terrorists or America?’
Check out this dynamic ad by The Lincoln Project in this tweet:
‘An attack on the U.S. Capitol is an act of terrorism, whether the attackers are foreign or domestic.’

Senior White House Reporter for The Wall Street Journal Michael Bender just released his new book Frankly, We Did Win This Election. He wrote about Donald Trump being the only president “Whose defeat culminated in a violent insurrection,” The Twelve Books site read:
‘[The book] is the inside story of how Trump lost, and the definitive account of his final year in office that draws a straight line from the president’s repeated insistence that he would never lose to the deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol that imperiled one of his most loyal lieutenants—his own vice president.’
Twitter world went nuts when they saw this. Take a look at how they responded:
