TEHRAN (Iran News) – Capitol Riot, Sign of U.S. Empire’s Decline. On Thursday, the U.S. marked the first anniversary of the brief January 6 occupation of the U.S. Capitol building by a large crowd of Americans protesting the outcome of the disputed 2020 election and President Joe Biden in his speech launched a scathing attack at the former U.S. President Donald Trump by calling him a threat to democracy while that incident was a clear sign of the U.S. empire’s decline and a serious rift and division in this country.
For years most politicians and analysts have warned that the U.S. is on the verge of collapse and the countdown for this collapse has already begun and any moment it can happen and the Capitol occupation was another proof for this belief and decline a.
The U.S., the self-proclaimed flag-bearer of democracy, was dealt a devastating blow to its image by insurrectionists, apparently encouraged by the then President Trump, storming the Capitol Building in an attempt to overturn the result of the 2020 Presidential election.
The anniversary finds the United States of America on thin ice as far-right and alternative groups and extremist republican politicians have all been instrumental in inciting divisions within the nation.
A recent report has warned of the rising threat of extremism in the United States.
The report, prepared by the Atlantic Council’s digital forensic research lab, states that 12 months after the attack on the Capitol by a pro Trump mob, far right groups were traced and arrested by police and federal authorities.
It clarifies that other groups have reorganized, often with an emphasis on local level politics. It found that domestic extremist groups have recruited and spread their messages through culture war debates, including vaccines, race and education.
The report asserts that groups such as proud boys and QAnon conspiracy movements have reemerged in recent months.
They have made progress by shifting to alternative online platforms, embracing rhetoric to engage more broadly with a mainstream conservative base and engaging in new political activities, particularly public health and education issues, at the local level.
On Thursday Biden accused his predecessor, Trump, of posing “a continuing threat to democracy.”
The Democratic president accused Trump of creating a “web of lies” to pursue “power over principle.”
“We must be absolutely clear about what is true and what is lie. Here’s the truth: A former president of the United States of America has created and spread a web of lies about the 2020 election. He’s done so because he values power over principle,” Biden said.
Biden added that “for the first time in our history a president had not just lost the election he tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power.”
Biden condemned Trump for watching the protest on television “and doing nothing for hours.”
“The former president and his supporters have decided the only way for them to win is to suppress your vote and subvert our elections,” Biden said.
“One year ago today in this sacred place, democracy was attacked. Simply attacked,” Biden said. “The will of the people was under assault. The Constitution, our Constitution, faced the gravest of threats.”
Despite Biden’s accusation against Trump, all those incidents in the recent years bespeak of this fact that Americans are losing their faiths in their politicians and the elections and it is a step forward to the collapse of this country which has always pro-claimed supporting democracy.
According to a recent conducted polls, Americans’ faith in the integrity of their country’s election system has dropped following the events of Jan. 6.
Now, just 20% of the public say that it is very confident about the system, a new ABC/Ipsos poll finds.
The new findings show a significant fall from 37% in an ABC News/Washington Post poll carried out in the days after the insurrection last year.
The lack of strong confidence in the U.S.’ ability to hold an honest election crosses partisan lines.
Among Democrats, 30% believe they are very confident in the election systems overall, while among, only 1 in 5 consider themselves “very confident” in the country’s elections.
And among Republicans, only 13% are very confident, with a significant majority (59%) having little faith in the system.
A recent poll has found that at least 50 percent of Republican voters surveyed believe their vote will not be counted accurately the next time they cast a ballot.
Commenting on Biden’s statement, American journalist Don DeBar said, “In 2016, Trump was elected in the face of the most aggressive negative campaign U.S. intelligence and U.S. media have ever conducted. For the 4 years he governed, the FBI, the CIA, the leadership of both political parties and the entire U.S. media attempted to drive him from office. Despite all of that, Trump nearly won in 2020 and, absent massive fraud, would have been re-elected.”
So the U.S. as the flag-bearer of the so-called democracy and fair election is no longer a haven for democracy and what the American politicians claim are void, and through the time the world public will see more signs of U.S. decline no matter who rules the country whether a Democrat or a Republican as this car is falling the bottom of the valley of mistrust and rift which ultimately leads to full collapse and there will be no longer any United States but divided states.
