FBI vetting National Guard troops in DC
amid fears of insider attack at inauguration

Original Article

U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event. The massive undertaking reflects the extraordinary security concerns that have gripped Washington following the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. And it underscores fears that some of the very people assigned to protect the city over the next several days could present a threat to the incoming president and other VIPs in attendance.

What a bunch of hysterical crap! How insulting is this to the National Guard members who are being submitted to conditions like sleeping on the floor of the capitol as part of a fake news event to support the faux President Elect. As people are asking, if 80 million people really voted for Dementia / Cheating Joe - why does he need this level of a show of force? Afraid of the truth coming out? That's what I think!

So let me get this straight...they're worried about an assassination attempt on the, allegedly, most popular president elect in history? One would almost think the election was stolen and they're concerned about somebody trying to get payback. Wait.......the election was stolen and the president elect is an idiot so maybe they should look to see if Kamala Harris is behind the plot.

I think this is great for our side, and I hope the military folks are paying attention. This is what they really think of them. May these demons fear for their lives every second of every hour for the rest of their lives. May they never sleep another night without terrifying nightmares of what some random person could do to them. Think I'm a terrible person? This is what they actually plan for millions of US; I'm simply wishing it for them.

If I may ask a really silly question: Why does it take 30,000 highly-armed troops, miles and miles of riot fencing and barbwire, hundreds of security checkpoints, total lockdown of the peoples' city, complete messaging blackouts, press misdirection and disinformation campaigns, loyalty vetting of sworn National Guard soldiers (loyalty to Democrats, not to the U.S. or Constitution), calls for, open threats of, and actual retribution by "elected" officials against the entire opposition party and constituencies, and Stalinist and Maoist proposals for fascist actions such as "deprogramming", gulags, "disappearing", etc directed against the entire opposition base, ostensibly to inaugurate "the most popular" and "highest vote-getting" (though clearly functionally-fragmented) Super-Star Presidential candidate the country has ever seen (except... during the...campaign)? Especially since it's only slated as a "virtual" event? This is the Great Reset meets the Green New Deal, crossed with a Progressive endgame and International Marxist wet dream, with elements of the Nazi Final Solution thrown in for giggles. There will be a special place in H@ll for the people that perpetrated, and permitted, this travesty on the Beacon of the Free World.

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.

At age 15, I joined the biggest white-nationalist party in the UK, the British National Party. In the last decade, the BNP became hugely popular in blue-collar areas, feeding off workers’ misery following the 2008 crash and mainstream politicians’ refusal to discuss mass migration amid an economic crisis. I have since left the BNP and rededicated myself to countering its poison. And there is a lesson in my radicalization for the incoming Biden administration and US elites.

As the Biden administration looks to make its mark on healthcare, one policy it is likely to overturn is President Trump’s 2018 executive order loosening rules for short-term health insurance policies, an effort to provide alternatives to Obamacare plans that Democrats described as sabotage. While such policies account for a small part of the health insurance market, it is likely indicative of healthcare policy battles to come during the Biden administration, pitting liberal groups who want to defend and build upon Obamacare against conservative groups who want more free-market alternatives.
