(NYPost)   US Capitol Police announce increased security, citing "concerning information". In a better world there would be a "this is not a repeat from January 4th" joke next. Sadly, the world is far from better   (nypost.com) divider line

A lot of Congress people want the fences down, less security. They remain oblivious to the problem.

January 4th?

Best be safe.  Babbitt all the Ashlis.  Won't be a problem then.

sources said that officers' days off and vacation days have been canceled this week as a result of this new threat.

Because if you make the cops this week, they can't participate in the insurrection.

Iworkformsn: January 4th?


Also on Jan. 4:Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund asks the Senate and House sergeants at arms for permission to put the National Guard on emergency standby. They reject that idea and suggest instead that he informally seek out his Guard contacts, asking them to "lean forward" and be on alert in case the Capitol Police need help.

From here: https://billmoyers.com/story/in​surrect​ion-timeline-first-the-coup-and-then-t​he-cover-up-updated/

I believe this is the reference subby is making.

Don't announce it dammit, just get in place.  We didn't announce the D-Day plans.  These clowns will probably stay home now and brag about how terrifying they are, and the complicit congresscritters will moan and whine about the costs and waste.

Hell, announce that everyone is going on leave and not even a skeleton crew will be guarding the place.  These cowards want to take over, lure them in, lock the door behind them and unleash on them.  You don't alert the media when dealing with terrorists.

Not to take away from any service member's intent on defending this country, but the question has to be asked if all of those supporting 'the cause' have been sufficiently screened out?
 
2021-03-03 9:47:19 AM  
I don't care what the police are doing.  I bought a very pricey pair of VIP inauguration tickets for tomorrow and I be there to see Trump sworn in (on a real signed Bible) come hell or high water.
 
2021-03-03 9:48:18 AM  
I just cannot wrap my head around the fact that Trump has tripled his hotel cost because his supporters might show up en masse, yet they apparently still plan on coming to the capital. How can they not see that he playing them and sees them as income opportunity?

It infuriates me watching the things that are happening right now. I watched about five minutes of Trump's word vomit at the CPAC rally and had to turn off the TV and go for a jog. I think that hideous, cartoonish statue is a ridiculous distortion of reality and a perfect representation of his followers.

What an unbelievable disgrace.

Don't even need to unleash on them, just remove all food from the building in advance, barricade the exits and shut off all the utilities.  After 2-3 days the problem solves itself.

This is going to be real dumb if it happens. Mostly because it will exclusively include people that watched it happen before, saw a bunch of morons with no legitimate cause get arrested, then decided doing it again was smart.

I've only entered into a chili eating contest with a Thai man or a vodka drinking contest with a Polish man once.

Because afterwards, while it seemed fun, turns out that was a really stupid thing to do.

The fact that our US Capitol is surrounded by fences and barbwire makes me sick to my stomach.
Thanks a lot Trump.

There's a sucker born every minute as  P.T. Barnum said.  I like the expression "they saw you coming" as con sees his mark.  However, with Trump, it is worst than that.  He not only "saw them coming" he actually sent for them.

I have two nephews from one sister.  I taught them newfie arm wrestling.  That's where you get them to hold a fist in front of your face and they have to keep from pulling the fist down.  Then you release and they accidentally punch themselves in their own head.

I did it to my first nephew.  Released early before he was resisting too much so he didn't punch himself hard at all.  We all had a big laugh.  My  younger nephew than said loudly "My turn!" and held up his fist.

Trumpers are like my younger nephew.

abhorrent1: IIRC isn't tomorrow the day the Qanon nutters think Trump is somehow coming back to take back the presidency or something?


Trump is having a very discrete ceremony.  It will be inside the Washington monument which is the true seat of power of the executive.  He will do it discretely because he does not want to interfere with the mass arrest all democratic party politicians which will be his first act of office.  He does not want to blow the element of surprise for the safety and security of military personnel leading this huge operation.
 
2021-03-03 10:06:54 AM  
I see that our nutty downvoter still thinks that is a thing. No riot because most of them are cowards and don't want to get fired when they return home, and Trump has not told them to come. We still need tight security due to the seriously damaged among us who don't want to play nice. Some features will surely become standard now that deficiencies have been exposed.

The problem at this point is imaginary.  Given the fences, massive guard presence, the charges coming for those who breeched the capitol last time, and the general level of concern there is no chance a sufficiently sized crowd could gather in striking distance of the capitol any time in the foreseeable future.

We're talking about some of the stupidest human beings who are still capable of breathing on their own.  It doesn't matter what anyone says, they live in their own imaginary worlds and are resistant to all information. We could show live webcams of Apache attack helicopters hovering over the steps of the Capitol building and they'd still probably show up for another insurrection, believing that their god daddy Trump and their bulletproof MyPillow vests will protect them from all harm.

bacchanalias and consequences: Haha we just posted two allegories about the same sentiment.

Lots of allegories but they never learned from them.  I remember a French Quebecois jokes that's very long but I will summarize.

A guy calls a girl in the morning and asks her for a date.  She agrees and they go on a date later that day.  He drives her home but stops a mile short and says "put out or walk".  She says "I'm not that type of girl" so he kicks her out of the car and she walks home.

Calls her early the next morning and asks her out on a date again and she says yes.  This time he stops the car 5 miles away from her home and says "put out or walk".  Again, She says "I'm not that type of girl" so he kicks her out of the car and she walks home.

He does this every day for over a week but always parking farther from her home.  Finally, after a date, he drives over 100 miles from her home and says "put out or walk".  Again, She says "I'm not that type of girl" so he kicks her out of the car, but as he starts to drive away, she waves him down and she runs up to his window and says "don't call me early tomorrow, I won't be home yet."
 
2021-03-03 10:16:02 AM  
Without Trump egging them on, and with 500 of their more vocal leaders in prison, I think the capital police can handle them, especially if the leadership doesn't send the night shift guys home before the attack, or send out half the riot gear without their gear.

That said we certainly should beef them up with the National Gaurd and pull in SWAT teams from the FBI and all other Federal agencies that have one, incase the idiots decide to use their AR 15s as anything other than a flesh light.

All you need are a half-dozen sharpshooters at strategic spots, with 7.62 semi-autos and a half-dozen full mags each. 7.62 Nato laughs at vests or improvised armour. These morons will be stampeding over each other to get away after the first guys heads or ribcages blow up, and later you collect bodies, identify them, and tell the families that they have 48 hours to pay for shipping the bodies home, embalming not included, or they get sent to the nearest hazardous waste site to get incinerated.

Exactly. He knows they will pay to stay in his crappy hotel. I'm anticipating a day when Melania finds a richer man and dumps Trump. His female slobbering sycophants will swoon and fantasize while Trump strokes their egos and declares he'd never grab that by the pussy when they turn their backs.

I honestly feel sorry for his base. They are deluded. He doesn't give a rat's ass about them. The left hates them and laughs at them. And all the while at least some of them believe the unbelievable crap they're being fed. I'm not saying they should feel stepped on and disenfranchised, but I do think a lot of them truly believe they are, so in their minds all of this crap they are clinging to is real. And apparently no one in the GOP has the balls to stand up and say enough is enough.

I wish I could live a couple hundred years to read how history books will finally right the lies.
