    Army and Air National Guard members deploying to Washington, D.C. to help guard the capital and stay through the Jan. 20 inauguration will have access to lethal weapons at their commanders' discretion, Guard commanders said Friday.

    Yep. It's going to be an historic image. If there's ever going to be a re-awakening in America, they will look back at this image as a reminder of what went wrong.

    No sh*t.

    Oddly, though, them playing all of their cards like this in 2020 and over the last couple weeks is also a sign that they think they've won. So, I'm wondering which is it? Maybe a combo of both.

    We need to stick together more than ever now in these coming days.
    Time to reconnect and strengthen bonds with family, friends, and anyone else we can reach.

    They do not think they've won. This is not how people who feel secure in victory behave.

    Another relevant Malicism: "The propaganda wouldn't be necessary if they were winning."

    Very fair points...

    I'm curious to see how this next week plays out. Will this weekend's events have pronounced impacts across the board, particularly with the stock market? I am very curious to see.

    Are emotional, hysterical, pathological people ever “secure”?

    Trump joked he could shoot someone in the street and no one would care. When given that power, Pelosi and friends will exercise it.

    Regardless of what happens with things like stock prices and the like, they'll just try to put some positive spin on it (or blame it on something or someone else).

    But the more strident their proclamations and protestations to the contrary, the less confident they are in their triumph.

    Therein lies the real problem.

    Animals that feel cornered are the most dangerous - but they do feel cornered (rather than secure), regardless of any noises they make to the contrary.

    Empty Guns for Show.

    I remember waving at those guys on my way home from the pub.

    Big Coppeteers had Bullets in their guns.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    This is nuts. This is the type of thing that happens with occupying armies - not a new administration.

    1049th Transportation Company (Aviation trans... couple here'n there... ass and trash)
    262nd Component Repair Company (you break it, they fix it, No-Go on deployments... to me, this means they expect to need to repair $#@! right then and there as opposed to waiting til they get home)

    On January 20th, 2017 I was in DC celebrating the inauguration of our DULY ELECTED 45th President Donald J Trump.

    On January 20th, 2020 DC will be a police state , where the CRIMINALLY SELECTED USURPER-IN-CHIEF Biden will require the presence of over 6,000 military troops to secure his safety. Who says that crime doesn't pay ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Why am I also hearing China has troops staged in Canada and Mexico, ready to invade?

    This may be about to become an ACTUAL WAR. Tanks. Bombs. The whole nine yards.

    And we have teh people still stuck in DENIAL. They really believe "that could never happen here". I am sure the people that lived in Germany also believed something very similar just before Hitler took power...

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.
