Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 11, 2021

The FBI has sent a memo to law enforcement agencies across the country warning about possible armed protests at all 50 state capitols starting Saturday and saying an armed group has threatened to travel to Washington, D.C., the same day to stage an uprising if Congress removes President Donald Trump from office, according to a senior law enforcement official.

How dangerous is an armor piercing bullet?

Are they a registered trademark or physically a better ammunition?

It would be interesting to upgrade their materials and firepower - specifically to penetrate a mountain.

But then the shooter could be in orbit! Oh, the humanity of weaponization..

Now is the part where the right-wingers claim an armed protest is a non-violent protest.

Uhhh... sure boys.

Michigan passed new rules that there could be no open carry of weapons.... which I thought was prolly a good idea. But then I saw that they meant INSIDE the Capitol building. Meaning it's usually OK to open carry weapons in there.

Oooo...K.

Or claim that the armed protesters are Antifa.

Yeah! Look at all those Antifa guys they've arrested... oh, wait...

I hope Mythbomber and Sarah Palin weren't wrong about them being Antifa. That would be SO embarrassing!

"The FBI is warning that armed protests are being planned at state capitols across the country in advance of Inauguration Day.
In a Monday bulletin obtained by ABC News, the federal law enforcement agency stated: "Armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the US Capitol from 17 January through 20 January"
Good old antifa.

It looks like we could have our own bloody Sunday on our hands:

FBI warns of potential boogaloo violence during Jan. 17 rallies. There are confirmed mobilization planned of boogaloo boys on the 17th and militias on the 20th. State Capitols also at risk.

I can see it now.

As Trumpers storm DC and several state capital buildings across the country, Republicans will be on TV lecturing us about how we need to move past this and move towards healing and unity.

Which of course means letting them and Trump off the hook.

Do any of you think the FBI is a bunch of liberals? The FBI is warning us about a real threat to our freedon, our government, our way of life. We need for the FBI to be backed up by thousands of Americans so that there can be no doubt who the American people support. And that would be our FBI. Corny, ? Yeah a little. But in today's reality I am thankful they are there for us.

DANNI is correct.

I little excited perhaps but with good cause. We all have our way to express our concern. I'm sure the FBI threats are legitimist, to the best of their intel.

I'd say it's best to be prepared rather than sorry. Personally, if there is another assignation attempt on January 20, (or even the appearance of one) I'd say Trump hasn't learned his lesson and his army of ragtag lowlifes are fair game for live ammunition.

No more Mr. Niceguy.

Sorry to say, I have to completely agree with you Twin. If they come back to disrupt government again then shoot them down like the enemies of America that they are. Americans do need to realize that these people are not playing, they do fully intend to overturn a legal election and install their hero as dictator for life. Some of you are actually dumb enough to think that would be a good thing, fortunately there are far more of us than there are of you psychos. There is no question about them succeeding, the only question is how many Americans have to die to prove we won't give in to an angry mob?

House Democrats Briefed On 3 Terrifying Plots To Overthrow Government

...One plot includes surrounding the Capitol and murdering Democrats to allow Republicans to take control of the government.

Capitol Police briefed Democrats on Monday night about three more potentially gruesome demonstrations planned in the coming days, with one plot to encircle the U.S. Capitol and assassinate Democrats and some Republicans....

The only problem with your analogy is the word "temporarily."

It was just a "ceremony"! Like any other ceremony! You know... Like the grand opening of a Taco Bell. Just a ceremony!

They threatened to murder bro. It wasn't just a "temporary" disturbance or "disruption".

It was a failed attempt at armed insurrection by a violent mob that resulted in murder and attempted murder directed by the President.

Go to jail. Go directly to jail. Do not pass go... don't not collect government benefits.

One must wonder if Biden and Harris will be outside for the swearing in when it happens as things are so rocky at the moment. This isn't the Women's March and it isn't a BLM Protest - even when those turned to riots. This is dangerous to our Democracy and insidiously evil.

He got back the members of his detail under Obama - at least for now.

The Guardian - "Several "senior" Secret Service agents are poised to return to the president-elect's protection team and Biden knows these agents well because they guarded him and his family during his time as vice-president, according to the article, echoed in a report by CNN, citing a law enforcement source."

Of course that is not the first action. There needs to be a plan to escalate the lethality of response as the situation degrades. A large enough perimeter around the ceremonies with multiple rings of barriers needs to be established such that the lethality of force used to repulse the rioters increases as the interior barriers are breached. This approach will force all but the most strident of rioters to give up and run/walk/crawl away. Any rioters reaching the last barricade should be met with such a lethal force that they would not be able to leave under their own power.

^ I forgot to add that all rioters going past the first barricade would be spray painted for later identification. Cops/troops not manning the barricades could round up these rioters as they attempted to flee.

"Now is the part where the right-wingers claim an armed protest is a non-violent protest."

BLM already disproved that rather vehemently and without any ability to refute it. NO way it will ever go back to being a consideration as it was before. Now, every armed protest is a violent protest. Well, in reality it is, but Dems will still refuse to accept reality and say that any violence done in the name of Liberal ideologies is OK.

Why do you need weapons at a peaceful protest?

Regardless it not a violent protest until it becomes violent.

Whether you have arms or not.

And speaking of still refusing to accept reality... let's see how in touch with reality you are.

Do you accept the reality that Americans did not re-elect Donald j Trump?

Do you accept the reality that this was an violent insurrection incited by none other than the President of the United States, Donald j Trump?

Do you accept the reality that he will now be impeached for the second time and this time he might actually be convicted and removed and told he can never again hold any federal office of honor or trust in the United States?
