"All Hands On Deck" - Up To 25,000 National Guard Now Authorized In DC For Biden Inauguration

This is how the Capitol looks from inside

ZeroHedge reports:

The National Guard has authorized up to 25,000 Guardsmen around the Capitol complex to support security efforts surrounding President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.

Much of the National Mall will be closed to the public ahead of inauguration day. Armed Guardsmen with M4 carbines will be patrolling the streets around the Capitol, federal buildings, and monuments, including the Lincoln Memorial.

Guardsmen have been briefed about bomb threats and have been authorized to use lethal force if necessary.

Due to unspecified threats, Biden’s rehearsal dinner slated for Sunday has been postponed. The rehearsal is now scheduled for Monday.

Security throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area is very tight as FBI warnings of protests and possibly armed extremists could cause chaos next week.

Businesses near the Capitol have boarded up their windows in anticipation of violent clashes between extremists and the Metropolitan Police Department, Secret Service, Park Police, Capitol Police, FBI, and Guardsmen ahead of next Wednesday.

Roadblocks and metal fences have been installed around the area to limit large crowds’ mobility.

Over the last five days, a metal fence perimeter has been erected around the Capitol building, with thousands of Guardsmen protecting the grounds in a show of force against extremists.

The U.S. House panel sent letters this morning to local businesses asking for their help to prevent violence ahead of Wednesday. They also urged businesses to beef up security because protests may begin as early as this weekend.

Fox News reports large armed demonstrations at or near the Capitol and around other state Capitol buildings will begin on Jan. 17.

D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee told reporters Friday that “all hands on deck” ahead of next week. He said a massive show of force of federal agents and Guardsmen would protect neighborhoods throughout the metro area.

“Our officers can focus on keeping D.C. safe from any aspects of crime, including these extremist groups that have attacked our capital,” Mayor Muriel Bowser said.

To mitigate extremist groups’ ability to attack the Capitol, downtown security has been divided into two zones. The first zone is called the “red line,” attempting to enter the space would require an ID. The second is the “green line” with a soft perimeter and won’t be locked down as severely.

Capitol security is already at an unprecedented level. Still, there are talks that advanced surveillance technology, such as facial recognition algorithms to identify extremists, could be deployed during the inauguration or perhaps in the future.

I don’t think so. The so-called Americans are the rejects of colonial British Rothschild monarchy and too cowardly to rise up, unlike large hearted real people like the Russians and Iranians who have history of revolutions. US is a Zionist police state and the sheeple are too cowardly to come out even out of their trailer parks. Nothing will happen, Walmart will have another 10% sale of MADE IN CHINA trinkets and the idiots would line there instead..

After a year of civil unrest on police brutality, the U.S. is running low on body armor and gas masks and will resort to live fire to intimidate any unrest. The media is already preparing the people with these scare tactics.

Just days before a new president enters the White House, promising to unify a dangerously divided country, the state of the union can perhaps be judged by this metric: The U.S. is facing a shortage of bulletproof vests, gas masks and ballistic helmets.

You are being too harsh to the GDR, it was a peaceful democratic republic compared to the US murderous thuggish police state.

” GDR, it was a peaceful democratic republic compared to the US ”

That is true, because it was a racially and culturally homogeneous society. Check out US crime statistics to to understand better.

The German Democratic Republic was a very organised and peaceful functioning state compared to the criminal US. American brutal fascism has no equal in history, it has killed more people at home and abroad than the Mongols, Huns, Nazis and Fascists combined.

And yet for the moment they dominate global finance and other spheres. How to replace or proposing an alternative might be more fruitful.

US dopey cowardly population will be disarmed next:

Zionist agenda is to disarm the entire US population on the Palestine occupation police state model. Why do you think they “trained” the American police forces and the wide use of ” I can’t breathe” death chokehold they apply on Palestinians.

JIMI JAMES

It looks it,They wanna ban guns let them,but you need constitiuate respecting copt to honour service and help the communites cops,
not the politicized fkwits like they have in usa,good luck ny with trying,
Texas on the otherhand is huge,who knows better to confederate than go down crying with tails between their legs,thus assume somehow freedom has to give?

The whole ” I can’t breathe” shtick was a psyop.

“The East German Stasi could only have dreamed of having a police surveillance state like Amerika” Thomas Drake (senior NSA administrator subsequently prosecuted by Obama using the Espionage Act)…after obama bankrupted him he settled for 1 misdemeanor count of misuse of a govt computer

Indians know the cowardly, thuggish and criminal nature of the Anglos the best. US, Australia, Canada and NZ are British crown colonies and mostly penal ones with a suppressed controlled populations. These cowards will never rise against anything unless there is money, plunder or profit involved. Dr. Noam Chomsky, one the most brilliant elders among the independent breed of intellectuals dubbed US the culture of Manufactured Consent, in other words a brainwashed compliant population that is fed a steady diet of “exceptionalism” propaganda and ignorance.

Anglos only attack the weakest or the most vulnerable and now with thousands of police, national guard and military deployed and streets locked down in a fascist police state, do anyone think that an an obese dumb redneck will show up and lay seize to the Congress Bastille overflowing with heavily armed FBI and tools of suppression? Not even a remote possibility.

see Nancy Isenberg’s recent book, ‘White trash: the 400 year untold History of class in amerika’

Is Nancy Isenberg Amish ?

No thanks. I dont read court historians, especially not ones who capitalize on the only form of racism still permissible – even sanctioned – by the big globohomo gay disco, aka USA.

You shouldnt either.

occupybacon

Funny how eurasians just get out of a yurta, drink some fresh blood of their horse and scream white trash :))

You should check out Bill Kristol’s new book, ‘Goy Schmucks: How Iran and Russia are mass-producing flying gas chambers and gearing up for another HolyCaust’, now available at bookstores everywhere.

Frankly, US is a shithole!

more news from the savage military dictatorship–inverted totalitarian jello empire….they have become Disney cartoon; American dignity exists with their only God, money. “of all peoples in an advanced stage of economic civilization amerikans are least accessible to long views, always and everywhere in a hurry to get rich they give no thought to remote consequences, they see only present advantages…amerikans do not remember. amerikans do not feel. amerikans live in a materialist dream”. Moisede Ostrogorski

A new uniparty regime- (s)elected by specious mail-in ballots in the dead of night, rubber-stamped by a CONgress in the dead of night – is about to be sworn in to power, at an empty national mall, protected by five brigades of regime troops, and no one must question it.

Prepare for turbo-globohomo.

Is this the land of the free and the brave or some third world country with an imposed government.
