The U.S. Capitol Police said it "asked the Department of Defense for the ability to receive National Guard support should the need arise" during an upcoming rally in support of the deadly Jan. 6 invasion.

"The USCP said in a press release Monday that they are "aware of concerning online chatter" surrounding the rally, and that the Capitol Police Board had approved plans to temporarily erect fencing around the Capitol. The board also issued an emergency declaration that will allow USCP to deputize outside law enforcement officers.

The rally follows other incidents by lone actors in recent weeks. On Monday, police arrested a man who allegedly had knives in a pickup truck displaying swastikas that was outside the Democratic National Committee headquarters.

Last month, police arrested another man who parked his pickup truck outside the Library of Congress on Capitol Hill and claimed he had a bomb."

The Capitol Police are expecting 700 attendees... so the Rally organizers are prolly expecting 700,000.

70 may be the right number.

"Organizers of a Saturday rally supporting defendants charged in the Capitol riot Jan. 6 are urging participants not to wear clothing or carry signs supporting former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

Matt Braynard, the former Trump campaign staffer who organized the rally, said participants who supported the political figures would be considered infiltrators.

"We request that anybody attending our events not wear any clothing or have signs supportive of either President Trump or Biden," Braynard said in a tweet.

"Anyone not honoring this request will be assumed to be an infiltrator and we will take your picture, find out who you are, and make you famous."

"former" Trump staffer? yeah, right.

Guess they want to keep the fact that it's really a Trump Rally under wraps, rofl!!

I can't imagime you being outraged by that.
Only by this.

I'm not outraged at all. This is a stupid and unnecessary measure but that's par for the course with our government. Do this in advance of a BLM rally and progressives would lose their minds.

So why bring up BLM? You sure it's not because BLM outraged you?

Oh, like a BLM protest before the police instigate violence.

That would be nice.

The police instigated lasers in their eyes, fireworks and blunt objects thrown at them, arson, looting, assault and even murder?

Derek Chauvin and his accomplices on Line 2 for you, BellRinger.

If Gloria Swanson lived another couple of decades, piled on the pounds by negotiating the continuum between "sloth" and "sloth," decided she was a makeup artist in addition to being the World's Foremost Authority, kept muttering lines from Sunset Boulevard about how the "pictures have gotten smaller," and then warbled, "I'm ready when you are, CB!" then you, too, have been to Mar-a-Lardo.

Well this time they will get it since the brother of a traitorous ------- is not in charge.

This is a stupid and unnecessary measure

And January 6th was just some living tourists hugging and kissing.

That would be a pleasant surprise.

Plan for the worst...hope for the best.

Given the millions of dollars in damage the "tourists" did on January 6th as well as the dead and injured from all the "hugging and kissing" I would say having the national guard staged at a very close location is a prudent precaution.

The National Guard is appropriate given history. This event is likely to be yawner precisely because those attending know they can't get away with anything. Plus, whoever does attend is going to have their faces all over the internet for purposes of identification thirty minutes after the festivities end.

These aren't brave people we're talking about here. Only fascist cowards.

BellRinger is as proud as he is ignorant.

He says he's pro-vaccine, but he isn't vaccinated.

That's pretty much all you need to know to form an accurate opinion of him.

I'm betting this will be a small turnout. Despite the rwing media howling and Team Trump political theatre, I don't think a lot of people truly support the Jan 6 coup attempt.

But it's smart to be prepared.

I agree... the cl0wn brigade gets all oinky only when the coast is clear... or they have permission.
They got away with what they did on 1/6 because Trumptidumped denied resources to law enforcement.

Will the Ohio National Guard's Jim Rhodes Brigade be there, with fixed bayonets and live ammo in their M-1s? Any mess and these criminal insurrectionists might get the Kent State treatment...

Like most bullies they're cowards at heart. They'll only attack if they have 20-1 numerical advantage, perceived anonymity, the element of surprise (or unpreparedness), and believe there'll be no accountability for their actions. 8 months later it's probably a different story. We'll find out in a few days.

I hope the DC police have orders to shoot to kill, if anyone dares to scale the fence. If someone wants martyr themselves so be it.

Can the National Guard support cops with flamethrowers?

They just have to burn 1 fascist and the rest will die in the ensuing stampede to escape Justice.

Dear Monson,

Maybe better might be to have the company of NG infantry preload with the first round fired a blank. Give it a few seconds to sink in, then light up the insurrectionists who refuse to retreat. I am already sick of their sxxt.

Best,
