FBI warns of armed protesters headed to all 50 state capitols

Plans exist for armed protests through Inauguration Day at all 50 state capitols, as well as at the United States Capitol, according to an internal FBI bulletin. [ABC News]

One group is calling for storming local, state and federal courthouses and administrative buildings in the event President Donald Trump is removed from office prior to Inauguration Day. The group is also planning to storm government offices in every state on Jan. 20 — the day President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated, regardless of whether individuals states certified electoral votes for Trump or Biden, the FBI is warning.

“The FBI received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, D.C. on Jan. 16,” the bulletin says. “They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment, a huge uprising will occur.”

On Monday, in the aftermath of last week’s storming of the United States Capitol by a pro-Trump crowd, Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives moved forward with an effort to make Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet invoke the 25th Amendment, declaring Trump incapable of performing his duties and replacing him with Pence until Biden’s inauguration. However, Republican Rep. Alex Mooney, of West Virginia, blocked the effort, prompting House Democrats to introduce an article of impeachment against Trump for “incitement of insurrection.”

These idiot lunatic fringe on both the left and right have literally exhausted the normal people who don’t give a shit about whatever cause they may be so worked up over.

Bingo! Their fervent ideologies have led them astray. Subjected them to the manipulations of others. Others, who have nefarious designs on the public largess and a desire for power. Trump hit the nail on the head, but was himself, a craven con. Wise up, Republican, return to your roots! … and

Live your life

Before it’s gone.

Free your mind

While there’s still time.

The 25th Amendment tactic is in essence a trial run. It won’t be long before Puppet Elect Biden will have it used on him by his own party. They can’t wait to get rid of him. They used his sorry ass to open the door until real Wizard can appear.

If you believe this, then you’re quite the fool. Posters are being shown to be of identical construction/design by Antifa groups. Nobody on the side of conservatives is calling fo these actions. It’s a ploy to attack the right as well as foster more reasons for leftist control of 2A and 1A.


Funny how this comes about when big tech chooses to remove the 1A from ANYONE on the right, including a sutting US President.

A classic example of denial.

Side_Show, the FBI is interested in what you have to say, as it goes against their conclusion this was carried out by a majority White Christian Right Wing Extremism, I hate labels, crime is crime, greed is greed, with ignorant understanding of scholastics, therefore, pity them by circumstance, just as dangerous as Anarachy in Poverty stricken communities taking advantage of a Civil Rights Movement BLM and causing anarchy vs protest and safe civil disobedience under duress; Again……., Chavez in Vein, MLK in Vein. Racism and snake oil is real. To say its Antifa is a Giant discovery, and could get some awesome federal attention for you! 8 pipe bombs, officers, firemen, politicians, etc all confirmed Criminals taking advantage the like of Charlie Manson. But amplified by a google, this was and will be the biggest terrorist attack on our soil ever.

Aren’t these “armed protestors “ the same groups of people who were recently being hailed here at CCN as “hero protectors” during the BLM protests? I seem to remember more than a few here applauding the Proud Boys, 3%ers, and Oath Keeper’s coming to town with guns this summer.


commonsenseguy

There’s nothing wrong a person protecting their own family business with uncivil thugs all around threatening damage to them and their personal property. I would think you would do the same it threat was aimed at your way of making a living and providing for your family. Not every situation is cut and dry as you present it. There should be accountability on both sides. It appears your blinded by your own hatred for certain people.


MrYan

I was not talking about the locals on top of their own businesses. It was the biker gangs that showed up that I was referring to.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy: “Undisputedly” no evidence Antifa participated in deadly Capitol siege

Just preempting the deflection.

Enough is enough. We need to round these folks up and vote out the politicians that are ‘fellow travelers’ to these traitors.


Apolitical

Does anybody know exactly what Trump said to “incite” the riot? Does anybody know why the Democrats incited and condoned violence most of last year, and now are complaining about the “rule of law” not being followed? Does anybody care that freedom of speech by conservatives is being squashed…one example being businesses that are no longer donating to politicians who exercised their freedom of speech and constitutional right to not certify Biden’s “win”? Inquiring minds want to know.

President Trump said: “Be peaceful and go home”. but they knew what he really meant.

If it’s the same caliber of buffoons in their coup cosplay costumes (aka the Pillage People led by Facist Gump) that rioted in DC, I don’t think we have anything to worry about. They will be squashed like bugs, which is what should have happened to them on Jan 6th.


Adam Trask

Last ditch efforts, maybe. Seems like the Trump thing is dying on the vine. Cheney of Wyoming is signaling she will vote for impeachment, and seems like McConnell is happy about it.


Looks like Donald has worn out his welcome and I doubt that some disgruntled white supremacists, who have stormed out of their closets in recent years, will pursue things further than what has already taken place. At least I hope not.


At any rate, Biden will be inaugurated next Wednesday and Trump will retreat to Florida or wherever. The U.S. will move on with scars and all, but, you know what, Jefferson, Madison, Hamilton, etc. designed something that could not be overthrown by the idiots who follow one man.


God bless our nation.
