Jacob Anthony Chansley, known as Jake Angeli, is in custody on charges including violent entry and disorderly conduct connected with the January 6, 2021 uprising in Washington, DC. Chansley is known as “the QAnon Shaman” and is allegedly the man pictured with a painted face, fur hat and horns inside Congress that day.  Chansley is accused (not yet convicted) of violent entry and disorderly conduct. Disregarding our honored presumption of innocence, Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Senator John McCain, already calls for Chansley to be sent to the Guantanamo Bay detention camp and fed dog food!  For violent entry and disorderly conduct!? This past summer, where I live, mobs of rioters committed violent entry and disorderly conduct yet received mostly probation. No one in their right mind would have called for them to be sent to Gitmo and fed dog food.
This (above) is only one of the current incidents causing widespread astonishment. There begins to be astonishment overload, the mind short-circuits, and befuddlement arises. People tune out because the overload is more than they can handle.
Astonished enough ’twas I when I saw all the Christopher Columbus statues being torn down in the summer of 2020. It was insurrection and yet no “BOLO” (Be On the Look Out) alerts were issued seeking help identifying the perpetrators. When a mob destroyed the Columbus statue near Little Italy in Baltimore over the Fourth of July, Nancy Pelosi shrugged her shoulders and said, “People will do what they do.”  BUT: When a mob committed breaking and entering at the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, the same Pelosi howls for blood! Add this to the list of astonishments.
Impeachment proceedings are underway against a president who leaves office in less than a week. Add this to the list of astonishments.
Hidden camera footage of PBS executive Michael Beller shows him advocating taking children from their Republican parents and sending them to re-education camps. 
The U.S. president has had his freedom of speech curtailed.
Something is wrong at the U.S. Post Office. An email from my credit card company advises the U.S. mails are inexplicably delayed and monthly statements will likely arrive late, if at all. I myself had already noticed a pattern change in mail deliveries.
A dubious public health issue has superseded the U.S. Constitution for a prolonged and indefinite period of time.
“Please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful” in the Constitution, sneered CNN anchor Chris Cuomo after this summer’s BLM riots. Yet Cuomo last week turned on a dime and condemned last week’s riot at the US Capitol. 
“If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” says the 11th Psalm. “How can you say to me, flee like a bird to the mountains?” Even in the mountains, still “the wicked bend the bow” and “shoot in the dark at the upright in heart.” Millions of Americans believe the 2020 election was fraudulent, but what can the righteous do? In 1963 also there was a coup d’état. Back then many of the righteous, such as journalist Dorothy Kilgallen, came forward – and look what happened to them! An astonishing number of witness deaths were clearly linked to a “clean-up operation” after the murder of President Kennedy.
