FBI warns ‘armed protests’ being planned at all 50 state capitols and Washington DC
By Zachary Cohen and Whitney Wild 31 mins ago
The FBI has received information indicating “armed protests” are being planned at all 50 state capitols and the US Capitol in Washington, DC in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, according to an internal bulletin obtained by CNN.
“Armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the US Capitol from 17 January through 20 January,” it says.
The bulletin, which was circulated after rioters stormed the US Capitol last week, also suggests there are threats of an “uprising” if President Donald Trump is removed via the 25th Amendment before inauguration day.
“On 8 January, the FBI received information on an identified group calling for others to join them in ‘storming’ state, local and federal government courthouses and administrative buildings in the event POTUS is removed as President prior to Inauguration Day. This identified group is also planning to ‘storm’ government offices including in the District of Columbia and in every state, regardless of whether the states certified electoral votes for Biden or Trump, on 20 January,” the bulletin adds.

Some of these asshats are total cowards and only “talk tough”.
But then again, some of these loonie-tunes are totally wacked out of their mind just enough to set off a major riot, or civil war-whatever you want to call it.
I see them showing off their guns to indicate they have a small penis which may be the case. More for intimidation than anything else. But it only takes one person to start a fire. Hope that doesn’t happen. My assessment is if law enforcement is smart, they can prevent a disaster from happening. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this is just a lot of hot air and nothing more. But hey! If the National Guard is at these events, let them take on the National Guard. It will be the last stunt they ever try against the government.

Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland National Guard troops deployed to Washington, D.C.
About 1,500 National Guard troops from Pennsylvania and New Jersey are in Washington, D.C., to help keep the peace. The troops are helping the D.C. National Guard protect monuments and buildings. The National Guard members will also be there for Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration.
There are still Trump/Pence signs around here and gun nuts, too.

sign out in front of my house these days.
Sad, but I’m not old for a confrontation. Still prepared though…just not looking for “none”.

The problem is the infection a mob situation creates. I
remember the book “The Oxbow Incident “, and also people
who applauded Goebbels,when he spoke, then left aghast at
what they had cheered later. Somehow even some reasonable
people lose it when they are within such a mob. As a youngster
I attended a Billy Graham revival meeting for fun. It took me
an hour or longer to shake off that influence. I don’t know
how that can be counteracted, but it serves us well to recognize

four years, I’ll never again wonder how “Hitler was able to do it”.
Thank God they have outted themselves fully and stymied for now.
