US Capitol Ordered Evacuated Because Everything Is Stupid

Wednesday evening, US Capitol Police, who we last encountered carrying out the cold-blooded execution of an unarmed woman on January 6, 2021, ordered the US Capitol evacuated


“The USCP is tracking an aircraft that poses a probable threat to the Capitol Complex,” read the email announcement issued a little after 6:30 p.m.

The AP report sheds some light on the incident.

The aircraft, a single-engine plane, was reported to be circling around Washington after taking off from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, two people familiar with the matter. The people said the aircraft did not report taking off and did not have appropriate clearance. The people were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

From this description, it seems that the Capitol Police knew that the aircraft had taken off from a military installation. In the law enforcement business, that is what used to be known as a “clue.” Perhaps in these days of sexual and species diversity, it no longer occurs to anyone that an aircraft launching from the military airbase that supports Air Force One is not hostile. Instead, they claim that the plane didn’t report taking off (this implies the Capitol Police were waiting for a take-off notice) and didn’t have proper clearance. The odds of either of those being true approach zero.

How can I be so sure of those statements? Well, we know who was on the aircraft.


It was the US Army parachute team, the Golden Knights, jumping into a Nationals game. The Golden Knights are no strangers to making parachute jumps around DC. They have a support team devoted to ensuring their flights follow all regulations. When the smoke clears on this, it is a safe bet that the issue had nothing to do with the take-off or the proper permission and everything to do with some bureaucrat trying to show they owned a particular fire hydrant.

We are ruled by idiots. Our government is staffed by idiots doing idiot things. What does that make us?
