After the events at the Capitol on January 6th, the pressure increases to ramp up security before Joe Biden is inaugurated on our nation’s hallowed steps. Fox News reports that “federal law enforcement agencies are launching a massive security initiative as they brace for more violence.”
At another moment in our young country’s history, Americans find themselves violently divided. The left waged war on American cities all summer long. The war ruined businesses, homes, schools, police precincts, and state and federal buildings.
These rioters were given a free pass by the media, the Democrats including Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and our neighbors. Despite our country’s state, Joe Biden insists that his inauguration’s theme should be “America United” and says that he is “not afraid of taking the oath outside.”
To protect the incoming President, President Trump declared a state of emergency, which included an “enhanced National Guard presence and ramped-up law enforcement by state and local officials.”
The report states that “officials increased the number of National Guard members who will be deployed in Washington during the presidential inauguration from 15,000 to 20,000 on Wednesday, about three times the number of U.S. troops currently deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan combined.”

CNN correspondent to the Capitol, Daniella Diaz, shows massive numbers of National Guard sleeping in the hallways as she arrived to work.
The report shares a circulating FBI memo stating that “the FBI received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January.” The memo continued saying that the group threatened “a huge uprising will occur” if Congress tries to invoke the 25th Amendment to take President Trump prematurely out of office.
It read: “We will work together, and with our partners in the federal government, to ensure the safety of the National Capital Region. Due to the unique circumstances surrounding the 59th Presidential Inauguration, including last week’s violent insurrection as well as the ongoing and deadly Covid-19 pandemic, we are taking the extraordinary step of encouraging Americans not to come to Washington.”
It is shocking the difference in security when the FBI likes the person they need to protect. Were there any such memos sent out on President Trump’s behalf when violent left “protesters” broke onto the White House grounds? All summer long, while Americans feared the sun going down in Democrat cities, where was the FBI?
Democrat Rep. Connor Lamb reportedly claimed that “about 4,000 armed ‘patriots’ to surround the Capitol and prevent any Democrat from going in.”
Democrats will never let a crisis go to waste. Instead of creating a sense of calm and unity in our country, the Democrats are working hard to label 75 million Americans as white supremacists intent on destroying America.
