In earlier posts, I put forth my take on the lack of a plan for the January 6th riot that took place in the Capitol building in Washington DC. I’ve been following the news on what happened, I’ll call it the under-reaction on January 6th. Now there seems to be an overreaction for the inauguration of Joe Biden.
The FBI has now been walking-back the story of capture and assassination teams breaching the Capitol. The Norfolk FBI office states that they issued warnings, yet the DC office has been silent on whether they were aware of warnings and warned the Capitol police of those warnings. The agent in charge in Norfolk may be on his way to Billings, Montana in the very near future if Democrats in Congress have their way. One must not disturb the narrative.
Certain Dems are floating their own conspiracy theory that Republican members of Congress conducted reconnaissance tours for the rioters. The media loves that, but they don’t have any names, just memories of seeing tours being conducted with people they’ve never seen before in the building. Adam Schiff, that paragon of honesty demands an investigation.
Now the National Guard soldiers sent to DC have come under suspicion and must be vetted before the big day. What must not be vetted is M4 carbines that are not a suitable weapon for crowd control, unless of course, you’re in Caracas.
One wonders why members of Congress are in charge of the Capitol police and directly involved in tactical decisions to protect the building. I do understand the concern if Senator or Representative Snirtler decides to wade in the reflecting pool dressed in nothing but a garter belt, or is shagging a Chi-Com spy. Who wouldn’t want to keep that a secret?Published in
