The 50 Armed Protests that came to nothing apart from a few guys “who work with BLM and Antifa”

The FBI apparently didn’t save the nation from a semi-naked man with a spear who walked into the US Senate on one of the most important sitting days of Congress ever. But it warned a week ago of “Armed Protests” between Jan 17 and Jan 20th. There are still a few days left before inauguration day, but the big threat supposedly was 50 armed events at all state capitols on Jan 17th.

What threat?

(CNN)The FBI has received information indicating “armed protests” are being planned at all 50 state capitols and the US Capitol in Washington, DC in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, according to an internal bulletin obtained by CNN.

The news comes as security measures are being stepped up ahead of Inauguration Day, …
But who called for an armed protest — a reckless and risky move in the current environment? Not President Trump. The main evidence, apparently, was a flyer that called for an Armed March for 12PM Jan 17th. Was there any other credible threat?
Oddly,  the flyer was issued without any author or organisation.  Warnings went out on conservative sites saying “it’s a trap”. 
Poster calling for an Armed Protest

An anonymous flyer calling for an armed protest?

Andrea Wideberg: “DO NOT ATTEND.  There is a 99.99999% certainty that this is a trap intended to give Democrats an excuse to destroy the Second Amendment and, quite possibly, to cordon off from society all Republicans and conservatives. Here’s the flyer, which we reproduce so that you’ll recognize it should you see it.  As you look at it, realize that you are the mouse, and this flyer is the cheese. “

Gateway Pundit also warned against it, and tracked a source (sorta, maybe) to  KennethBrooks1911 on Parler with a hashtag of #boogaloo. A Gateway reader followed the flyer back further and found someone called ““Turtle” at Tree of Liberty who announced the rally fully 2 months ago.

What emergency?

A thread called Capitol City Protest Tracker today couldn’t find a single big event on Sunday at 12 noon:

On Sunday, law enforcement members and journalists outnumbered the few people who showed up at state capitols across the nation.  A few states like Michigan and Ohio had large groups show up, some wearing attire or affiliating themselves with the boogaloo movement. Other than that it was a peaceful Sunday for most.

Police officers and journalists vastly outnumbered the small number of protesters who made an appearance. One of the more colorful demonstrators came with a sign reading “Spread the Love Honk Honk.” “It’s a beautiful day — nothing happening here,” one man said as he biked past the Old Capitol.

Jack Posobiec (a reporter at OANN) tweets about the Boogaloo Movement:

The Right Wing Boogaloo Movement are so far right they wear BLM shirts.
Brendan Gutenschwager reports from a protest in Lansing:
@BGOnTheScene ·
While discussing Joe Biden at today’s Lansing protest, one of the Boogaloo members says “at least the BLM and the Antifa people we work with hate them just as much” and speaks out against the Democratic establishment #Michigan #Lansing #BoogalooBois #Capitol    [Link to video]
If only the FBI had seen the January 6 Capitol event coming?
Is the FBI just incompetent,  or is it “successful” but mainly as a PR wing for the Democrats?  Could there be a pattern here? The fails both under and overstate the risks. But seemingly every fail allows media messages that are helpful to the Democrats: Hunter-Biden laptop held for 12 months while the Democrats pick his father as “best” candidate for President and the nation goes to the polls. Then there is the lack of any real protection for Capitol Hill on Jan 6, followed by the huge preparation for the fifty armed protests that were almost nothing. Tick, tick, tick.
Reuters doesn’t see it as an FBI failure, instead it hints unnecessarily, in a cumbersome sentence, that not many Trump supporters believe the Presidents “False Claim” that he won the 2020 election.
HARRISBURG, Pa./LANSING, Mich. (Reuters) – Law enforcement officers far outnumbered protesters at state capitol grounds on Sunday, as few Trump supporters who believe the president’s false claim that he won the 2020 election turned out for what authorities feared could be violent demonstrations.
Now is not the time to mention that when Trump did call for supporters to turn up, hundreds of thousands came.

More than a dozen states activated National Guard troops to help secure their capitol buildings following an FBI warning of armed demonstrations, with right-wing extremists emboldened by the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol in Washington on Jan. 6.

Security officials had eyed Sunday as the first major flashpoint, as the anti-government “boogaloo” movement made plans weeks ago to hold rallies in all 50 states.

    Great moments in the history of the FBI

    10 August 1941, the top British agent, code named “Tricycle”, Dusko Popov, told the FBI of the planned attack on Pearl Harbor and that it would be soon. The FBI told him that his information was “too precise, too complete to be believed. The questionnaire plus the other information you brought spell out in detail exactly where, when, how, and by whom we are to be attacked. If anything, it sounds like a trap.” He also reported that a senior Japanese naval person had gone to Taranto to collect all secret data on the attack there and that it was of utmost importance to them. The info was given to Naval IQ.

      Recent review of historical documents suggest that both Truman and Churchill both knew the exact timing of the PH attack days in advance but did not Move to prevent it because they BOTH wanted a situation that would convince Congress to approve a declaration of USA entering the war.

        Buy and read “American Betrayal” by Diana West. She has thoroughly documented these events, among many others.

        They were all part of a plan, well thought out and accomplished. In service to Stalin and the USSR.

        Her book is replete with footnotes galore. It is a magnificent book.

      FBI Supervisory Special Agent Joseph Pientka Testified The Review of Chris Steele was “Turned Off” By FBI Director of Counter Intel Bill Priestap

      Within recently released transcripts of documents by Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham there is a deposition by FBI Supervisory Special Agent 1, Joseph Pientka.

      SSA Pientka has always been a little bit of an enigma because his name, exclusively, has been redacted from every official government document within the full investigation of DOJ and FBI misconduct. Even in tangential court documents (Flynn), related to Joseph Pientka and Peter Strzok’s investigative collaboration, Pientka is ALWAYS redacted from everything. The system in DC essentially ‘ghosted’ him in all things. Now, the nature of that motive is surfacing.

    ANALYSIS
    The Media’s Incitement Campaign Against Congress Is What Really Radicalized Americans.

    JANUARY 17, 2021 RAHEEM KASSAM

    As most now recognize, the January 6th timeline disproves the claim that a singular Donald Trump speech caused simultaneous violence two miles away. He hadn’t even taken to the stage while thugs made their move on the Capitol. Thugs we now know include members of Black Lives Matter and registered Democrats.

    So clearly some people were pissed off at Congress, but who caused that rancor?

    How Radicalization Works.

    Counter-terrorism experts suggest the median radicalization time is over four years long, with 10 percent of those studied taking a decade or longer to influence with extremist propaganda.

    Brandeis University’s Jytta Klausen noted in 2016 that men especially took longer: taking a median of 52 months to radicalize.

    – A Dehumanizing Campaign.
    – The Echo Chamber.
    – The Firearm Chamber.
    – The Radicalization Rationale.

    What would be the point of me claiming anything can be fixed without a total reset of the way American media works? They’re just not going to do that, are they? The status quo serves them handsomely.

    Washington reporters fraternize with Washington operatives and everyone gets to benefit from the revolving doors between politics, lobbying, and “news”.

    Everyone serves the profit interest of major corporations, and no one can ever hold them accountable.

    When they try – like the the Tea Party movement, or the election of Donald Trump, or even the Occupy movement – the media classes plot a course to demonize and radicalize anyone who got in their path.

    It’s not the only rationale, of course. Many reporters today earn paltry amounts and expect nothing more in their lives. They’ve romanticized serfdom, and in most cases are victims of radical Marxist education trends that have told them a 600 sq ft apartment in the Navy Yard and a cat is all they were ever worth anyway. Now they’re projecting that onto the rest of us.

    And that’s broadly the way American media works. And it’s more of an answer than “TRUMP!!!” as to why psychopaths keep shooting and blowing things up.

        Hundreds of rioters destroyed property, set fires during Trump’s 2017 inauguration, and all charges were dropped

        As the FBI continues to arrest dozens of people allegedly involved in the Capitol Building riot earlier this month ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, it was just four years ago when similar rioting took place throughout Washington, D.C., as newly-inaugurated President Donald Trump began his term.

        Only then, instead of right-wing protesters, it was a riot dominated by supporters of anarchist groups like Antifa and left-wing organizations including Black Lives Matter.

        Video footage that was taken the morning of Trump’s inaugural shows black-clad mobs occupying streets, smashing storefront windows, attacking police officers, overturning trash cans, and generally causing mayhem in protest of what they perceived as a stolen election.

        Reports at the time noted that more than 214 people were indicted on felony rioting charges.

        “On the morning of January 20, protests over Donald Trump’s inauguration turned violent when black-clad ‘anti-fascist’ protesters smashed storefronts and bus stops, hammered out the windows of a limousine, and eventually launched rocks at a phalanx of police,” CNN reported Feb. 22, 2017.

        The network reported that police were forced to respond to the throngs of rioters with flash-bangs and other crowd control devices. Six police officers were reportedly injured; 230 people were arrested on Inauguration Day.

        Felony rioting, CNN noted, carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $25,000.

        But in the end, not a single rioter who was arrested during Trump’s inauguration was actually tried or convicted; the U.S. government dropped all charges against the more than 214 people arrested that day, the Associated Press reported.

        VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Film Crew Releases Never Before Seen Footage of 2017 Inauguration Riots

        Chicago, Illinois – Documentary film crew releases dramatic, never before seen footage of the 2017 Inauguration riots. The footage was gathered as part of an ongoing documentary about the fight for dominance playing out between establishment and independent news organizations.

        The shocking footage exposes a coordinated attack on the 2017 inauguration of President Donald Trump. Highlights include anarchists preparing for violent clashes with police (10:22), violent attacks on attendees (2:08), destruction of property (9:50), and the physical premeditated blockades that succeed in preventing voters from attending the Presidential Inauguration (3:29).

        Additional highlights include interviews with blockade organizers Code Pink and Disrupt J20, whose stated goal was to “shut this inauguration down.”

        Code Pink organizer Tighe Barry is asked, “Are you guys going to cause some mayhem?” His response is an emphatic “Yes sir!” (3:56) He adds, “We blocked this street because we feel like we have the right to tell them not to come into our city.” (4:27)

        J20 organizer is quoted saying, “These people should be referred to as neo-nazis, as fascist, as the legitimate scum they are, so they can be wiped from this country!” (1:48)

        Black Trump supporters are seen being called “Uncle Toms!” while also having their Trump hats snatched off their heads. (10:51)

      Re your first question Fitz.. My answer.. You can disprove a specific negative claim by providing contradictory factual evidence.

      As an investigator. Even if this is out of my remit. I would ask 100 questions… I’ll spare u 97 and give u 3.

      Is what I am being told the truth?
      What information has been censored or been held back?
      Is there anything Machiavellian going on?

      My gut feeling, (borrowing from Shakespeare), is that… Something is rotten in the State of America.

                Ian, do you grasp what election fraud and voting fraud is? And how it is done?

                One man actually hired to research it for officials In Texas gives us a thumbnail version in his three posts, beginning here as “Larry is Right”
                https://monsterhunternation.com/2021/01/05/one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-other/#comment-100334

                …Which is really a summary statement followed by supporting details:

                There’s a team of auditors, investigators, and data analysts, of which I’m a member of, that has been looking at the election data in Texas, mostly one large county.

                I have seen the data that the county is required legally to release to the state. Every possible scam you can think of and more took place. Combine that with criminal levels of apathy from the government and press, there goes your so-called republic.

                Anyone that claims there are no issues, or that cheating doesn’t affect the races, is a liar. This just isn’t a statistical analysis. This is going over the voter records and finding unregistered voters voting, non-residents voting, dead voting, people residing in foreign countries voting, voters voting twice or thrice, voters being illegally purged, ghost voters, computers changing votes, observers being denied entry to the polls, and so on…

                And the “press” will not acknowledge any issue with this election regardless of the credentials of the auditors.

                Now multiply this to a national scale especially the swing states. This is warfare through cheating, propaganda and corruption. You don’t need an army if you count the votes and decide the winners beforehand.

                In short, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin was right: it’s not voting that matters, but who [and therefore HOW the votes are) counts them.

                Truthfully I don’t understand it as well as do the 86 or so judges that rejected all of Trump’s lawsuits for lacking any acceptable evidence.

                Nor as well as former Attorney General William Barr who said there was no evidence of anything that would have altered the result of the election.

                Nor as well as Cristopher Krebs who presided over an elaborate election security effort by the Department of Homeland Security who stated that the general election was the most secure in U.S. history. Krebs has also been using Twitter to actively combat misinformation about the election, including issuing repeated denials of a false conspiracy theory claiming secret computer systems are committing voter fraud.

                Nor as well as the 59 top election security specialists who wrote a letter calling the president’s fraud assertions “ unsubstantiated” and “technically incoherent.

                Nor as well as the top election officials contacted by the NYT in all states who stated “It would be nearly impossible to do voter fraud in this election”

                That’s a lot of people that know a lot more than I do about election and voter fraud and collectively possibly know more than does the researcher in Texas

You have these young, gullible, highly programmed left wing journalist reporting these stories based upon emotion and not facts. They report what they feel, what others told them to feel, and what they want their truth to be. Neither article speaks to the facts of the case, they speak to the emotion.

                But Ian, what’s even worse is that millions of people digest it as fact because they know no better. And others can’t see past the propaganda because they want to see what they want to see also, and over, and over repeat the same false narrative. Please try again!

              I can find plenty of reporting on the affidavits, but none where they were accepted by the courts. An affidavit is just a statement, its veracity is what the court looks at. At this point in time, none of those affidavits have managed to get over the first legal hurdle.

                An affidavit is a sworn written statement of witness. It has NO hurdle to jump at all.

                Definition:
                An affidavit is a written statement from an individual which is sworn to be true. It is an oath that what the individual is saying is the truth. An affidavit is used along with witness statements to prove the truthfulness of a certain statement in court.

                There is video evidence, from both personnel phones and from security cameras.

                The courts and the many hearings didn’t try the cases.

                The courts looked at the affidavits and other evidence presented which was judged inadequate in every case. The reasons why those judgements were made were given in writing by the judges.

                As for video evidence that is just a joke. In one instance where 169,000 votes were delivered in boxes the reason was the votes were from absentee voters and the rules stated all the votes must be counted before they are sent to the rental counting station. Nothing sinister there at all.

    For a moment – Imagine that a left wing activist (in right wing attire) actually assassinated Biden on Inauguration day

    1. Kamala would neatly step into the role, bypassing her toxic political stances.
    2. Conservatives would be purged – socially & politically
    3. The entrenchment of leftist policy would be total
    4. It would be decades before the Republicans could conceivably challenge for the Presidency.
    5. Biden would be a Martyr for all progressive causes – held in higher esteem than their last, JFK.

    Not saying this would happen – but the rewards are so great it has got to be a possibility?

      Both Churchill and Stalin eventually cancelled all plans to asassinate Hitler, Churchil because he saw Hitler as a great military asset for the allies (making mistakes that made Germany’s defeat more certain), and Stalin because he feared a Germany without Hitler could be an anti-USSR partner of the western allies, not that that was ever realistic.

      Maybe Trump should provide Biden with some extra protection, if possible?

    Biden – “We are party of unity and love, everyone is welcome”. Biden today “My message to the large caravan of illegals heading to the US, don’t come”. Leader of the caravan “Is Biden serious, he is the one who invited us”.

    The police and National Guard combined will make it the largest crowd Biden’s ever seen. Joe will wonder why so many people have come out to see him.

    My advice to everyone is to learn Mandarin, it will come in handy.
    The USA will become a vassal state to the CCP and there goes our nuclear umbrella.

      If I was the CCP chairman and I just acquired the USA, what would I do?
      I wouldn’t even try to keep it as a country or a people. I would nuke the cities with no retaliation, then I could start to “restore it” in my own image. Quicker and less bloody in the long run.

      Jo; delete if this goes too far. It’s a hypothetical only; but it would be my choice for the next move if I was the CCP owning Biden and the country.

    Biden must be having a bad trip as his paranoia just went up another notch, all NG have been questioned if they voted for or donated to trump. They were originally armed to the teeth with orders to use lethal force but have now been disarmed.

    All of his security team have been demoted.

    Either the DS smells a rat or Biden is thinking the d
    razor wire is to keep him and not “them” out.

    48 hours to go……….

    The FBI has been impotent since J Edgar Hoover ruined it (and that’s been a long time). America would be better off if it eliminated the FBI and the CIA, and created a restructured Security Service under the control of the Department of Homeland Defense

    The fact that troops, concrete barriers and razor wire are needed for the installation (not inauguration) of a fake “president” suggest that Biden wasn’t the peoples’ choice.

      This is going to be a Civil War moment as Mainstream media Biden will be yelling that Trump stole his Presidency when President Trump is legally sworn in. As this idiot was disqualified almost two months ago.
      So, who has the army usually wins the war.

    UNCHARTED TYRANNY

    *****
    All tyrannies rule through fraud and force, but once the fraud is exposed they must rely exclusively on force. 
    — attributed to George Orwell


    By rights, by laws, by elections, by facts, by courts, by states, by both houses of Congress, we should on this Sunday before Inauguration Day be practically tired of winning. We should be almost past the initial waves of giddiness and relief that should have carried us through the shank of 2020 as we congratulated ourselves and our neighbors on the glorious fact that on November 3, American voted themselves “Trump country,” re-electing the president in a historic landslide.
    [snip]

    For those aware of Pence’s deep swamp roots, there was only the slimmest hope that naked political opportunism would drive him to permit the states to finish their electoral business, which was not only the right thing to do, but the popular thing — if, that is, We, the People still mattered.  

    We, the People, did not. If We did, the election wouldn’t have been stolen in the first place.

      Another explanation for the 25.000 + soldiers in DC:

      “British Trump-supporter Katie Hopkins is in DC right now with an interesting “take” on the massive military lockdowns.

      During the 2020 campaign, Biden spent most of his time in the basement – and even when his handlers did drag him out, nobody showed up to his so-called rallies. The left and media blamed the abysmal attendance on COVID, saying the hordes and hordes (82+ million??) Americans were such responsible pandemic citizens that they worshiped and celebrated the “great” Joe Biden from afar.

      Well, the same goes with this “inauguration” or installation as it’s more accurately called — Katie Hopkins says that the real reason they don’t want you in DC is so they can control the messaging and tell you whatever story they want and you won’t know any better.

      It’s also to cover up the fact that Biden literally has zero enthusiasm personally and for support.”

    Biden’s goons taking ammo away from National Guard.

    Biden’s transition team has revealed there is a very real fear that members of the national guard who support President Trump might kill Biden during the inauguration so they’ve asked commanders to confiscate all ammo and magazines from the soldiers. See photo: https://t.co/WUp8FKj0DZ

      That twit thread is hilarious!

      And it just goes on and on…tons of (what reads like) Trump supporters! Some of those are just priceless!

      Thanks for that, David!

      “2/ Biden’s transition team asked if it would be possible to determine which soldiers voted in GOP primaries or who have contributed to GOP candidates so commanders could station them away from the president-elect. The request was refused fueling their fear of attack.”

      https://twitter.com/amuse/status/1350800988496687106

      Oh come on! We all know that ALL soldiers voted for Biden! But soliders without ammo is nothing new. British troops in India in the 1930’s were not issued with ammo when on guard during riots, as told in “Rifleman” by Victor Gregg. Highly recommended!

    Time to drop the “Right Wing” nonsense and call them what they are – right or left extremism as it is called today is simply the Extremist Party, neither right nor left. Extremism is unwelcome anywere along the bell curve of rational, reasonable citizens. Extremists belong on another chart entirely.

    isnt it obvious? the fence around the capitol isnt to keep people out but to keep prisoners in. When can you be sure that all the loyal democrats will be in one place at one time….the inauguration. 25000 troops stationed in and around DC (and it appears that the Democrats dont trust them with ammo or having the right political bias) ready to secure the thousands of traitors. Pence will be there, he can be sworn in by the Chief justice after Biden and Harris have been arrested, Trump will step aside to a golf course in Florida (and annoy his neighbors) as a gesture of goodwill and to ensure solidarity of the nation.
