In two days Joe Biden will be inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States. The city of Washington, D.C. looks to be a city under martial law with ten-foot tall fencing (topped with razor wire), armed military troops as far as you can see and soldiers sleeping on the floors inside the nation’s Capitol. There are some 25,000 armed National Guard troops in Washington, D.C., more than are deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. According to intelligence there is fear of further attacks on the inauguration ceremony and possible assassination attempts on president-elect Biden. If the Washington mayor and police had been diligent additional security would have been secured days before the planned Trump rally at the Capitol. If proper precautions had been taken ahead of time there would not have been a storming of the Capitol. A show of force would likely have prevented any hostile behavior that fateful day. The events of January 6 were no insurrection as the media insists. An insurrection is a widespread rebellion, whereas this was an isolated incident. You could possibly have called the activities that took place this summer an insurrection where protests in numerous cities turned into coordinated riots and attacks on law enforcement. But any violence done in the name of social justice is always given a pass by the media but conservatives who commit violence are dangerous and need to be “controlled.” When it comes to protecting their own hides, Congress will turn Washington into a military encampment to keep themselves safe.
The National Guard soldiers are undergoing background checks because intelligence is concerned there may be “inside attacks” at the inauguration of Mr. Biden. Apparently they are interested in knowing if any of them supported President Trump or perhaps voted for him. That is an obvious infringement of our first amendment rights. To be on the safe side they have removed live rounds from some of the soldiers “just in case.” I think that speaks volumes for the legitimacy of our election. If everyone really trusted that this was a fair and honest election Mr. Biden would have nothing to fear. We are looking more and more like a third world country that rules by military force and rigged elections. We have already become a nation that suppresses free speech and persecutes people for their political beliefs. It is a nation that indoctrinates our college students and is now doing the same to our grade school children as well. I barely recognize my America and I can only imagine what it will look like after four years of Democratic control. If you’ve never read Orwell’s 1984, you must do so. We are becoming Oceania and Big Brother (the media) is controlling our every thought.
