Stuff Just Got Serious: National Guard
Troops Stationed at US Capitol Have
Been Cleared to Use Lethal Force

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 1/15/2021 10:18:40 PM

In an earlier article titled DOJ Watchdog & Other IGs Launch Probes Into Response to Capitol Riot: Questions Abound, I reported on a Friday announcement from the Justice Department’s inspector general that his office is conducting a probe into how the DOJ prepared for and responded to the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Apparently, it didn’t take long to come up with at least one conclusion — and solution. As reported by The New York Times, Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy has authorized the thousands of troops providing security in the area around the Capitol to use lethal force. Yeah, stuff just got serious.

How much do you want to bet that the rules of engagement are much less restrictive than in Iraq or Afghanistan?

So where were these guys and where were these rules of engagement when Portland was assaulting federal courthouses, trying to burn federal agents alive inside? And Seattle when rioters seized a portion of the city and declared it an "autonomous zone"? Seriously, why aren't Republicans demanding an answer to those questions?

It’s all part of the charade. The hysteria is all manufactured to besmirch Trump and supporters. They are now using the National Guard as a prop in their theater.

Doesn’t appear that any of the previous posters have spent much time understanding the message that was sent last week by the cretins who organized the charade. Had any serious group of killers actually been on site, it would have been one of the worst days in US political history. It’s still extremely difficult to imagine that the organizers (and idiotic local government) purposely exposed Congress by refusing appropriate security measures. Any hostile foreign enemy who watched the idiocy of 1/6/21 may easily conclude that American political leaders are more dangerously and foolishly irresponsible than previously imagined. This is an enormous invitation to every anti-American on the planet hoping to show that the USA isn’t what it used to be. Someone with some brains has figured this out and is in a mild panic. Having this many undisciplined weekend warriors playing such an important security role is a terrorist’s dream. The announcement of the level of force being authorized is nearly as stupid as using part-time sugarplums. Something bad is going to happen. [Wouldn’t it be absolutely AWFUL if the MOSSAD was to make the first day of Iran’s BFF President (Biden) one of the worst days on American soil?]

They have already killed a Trump supporter without being accused of murder. In fact, the name of the officer who killed her has not been named. They got away with it once so now they have said they can do it again. I wouldn't go to this fake inauguration if they paid me. I am not even going to watch it on TV. I have to wash my hair.

No way are they gonna shoot anybody. Fake, bogus news. This is all just a part of their psych/photo op to intimidate. No matter WHAT their orders, do you really think an NG member would take a chance of ruining his/her entire life by firing a weapon---what if an infiltrator were mideastern, black, LGBQT or whatever? Just imagine what would happen if a minority protected class were killed or severely injured during an altercation? Hundreds of people would materialize swearing they heard, "Hands up, don't shoot!" Having said that, we should definitely stay away from DC. I'm pretty worried that while all attention is focused there, someone will decide to wreak havoc elsewhere. It's a perfect opportunity for an evil mind. Stay alert.

A trap for Trump supporters is very likely being laid right before our eyes. Why else would DC be starting to look like a replay of the 1930's Germany right now? 10's of thousands of troops with no exit strategy, razor wire by the mile, looks like something big and nasty is being set up. Part of being courageous is also being prudent. I would say, let democrats have DC for that day. We have plenty of time for future battles.

On the eve of Joe Biden’s inauguration as president of the United States, he and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris participated in a national memorial at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., to honor the more than 400,000 Americans who have died from COVID-19. The inaugural committee encouraged Americans to join in the memorial by lighting candles in their windows and ringing bells. The event, billed as “A National Moment of Unity and Remembrance,” included the first-ever lighting of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool in memory of the lives lost. Leaders across the country were asked to light up city buildings in amber and ring church bells.

For four years, Donald Trump gave the U.S. a sane, America-first immigration policy. A legal one, too; he actually did his best to enforce the immigration laws, unlike the scofflaw Barack Obama. All of that will come to an end with Joe Biden’s inauguration tomorrow, and the results will be disastrous for millions of Americans. From Breitbart: President-elect Joe Biden’s amnesty plan will reportedly provide the glittering prize of U.S. citizenship to everyone who can show they were in the United States illegally on January 1, if Congress passes the wage-cutting, nation-changing legislation amid a deep economic recession. “To qualify

This week, Hillary Clinton and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called for a “9/11-type commission” into the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol following a pro-Trump rally. This may suggest the Democrats are mulling a new War on Terror — against domestic enemies. Both Clinton and Pelosi also returned to the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory, suggesting Russian President Vladimir Putin played a role in the Capitol riot. Pelosi appeared on Clinton’s podcast on Monday. Clinton claimed that Trump “disdains democracy” and suggested that Putin may be controlling him. “I hope, historically, we will find out who he’s beholden to, who pulls his strings.

Thomas Edward Caldwell, Jessica Marie Watkins and Donovan Ray Crowl were charged Tuesday by federal prosecutors in Washington with conspiracy as well as obstruction of official proceedings and destruction of government property, among other charges.

President Donald Trump received an unsettling warning on his final Saturday night in the White House. Huddled for a lengthy meeting with his legal advisers, Trump was warned the pardons he once hoped to bestow upon his family and even himself would place him in a legally perilous position, convey the appearance of guilt and potentially make him more vulnerable to reprisals. So, too, was Trump warned that pardons for Republican lawmakers who had sought them for their role in the Capitol insurrection would anger the very Senate Republicans who will determine his fate in an upcoming impeachment trial.

According to the NY Times, Biden’s incoming economic team has one goal: Get back to the booming pre-Covid economy of the Trump administration: As President-elect Joseph R. Biden, Jr. prepares to take office this week, his administration and the Federal Reserve are pointed toward a singular economic goal: Get the job market back to where it was before the pandemic hit. The humming labor backdrop that existed 11 months ago — with 3.5 percent unemployment, stable or rising work force participation and steadily climbing wages — turned out to be a recipe for lifting all boats, creating economic opportunities for long-disenfranchised groups and lowering poverty rates.

A Senate trial on whether to convict Trump and perhaps bar him from ever again holding federal office is expected to begin in coming days. After years of supporting Trump
