Classic DC Swamp Kabuki theater. – The media is now reporting that Washington DC is home to no fewer than 26,000 activated National Guard Troops. Here are photos of some of them being forced to sleep on the floor in various congressional office buildings right now:
Meanwhile, the streets of DC are filled with…no one. No protesters. No demonstrators. Certainly no rioters.
So, why is the National Guard there? Well, justifying an impeachment scam and the installation of a fraudulent President requires a great deal of theater. That theater includes “warnings” from the dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence that is the FBI about its supposed expectation of “violent riots” being planned by “Trump supporters” for January 17, and running all the way through Inauguration Day.
Of course, the truth is that there will be violent riots leading up to and on Inauguration Day, and have been at every inauguration since 2000. But they’ve never in the past been organized by conservatives and/or Republicans: They have always been organized and carried out by anarchists and leftists like those who now run BLM and Antifa.
As I discuss in depth elsewhere this morning, this FBI narrative is obviously being set up to discourage any protests by actual Trump supporters and to pre-set the blame for the riots that the left will inevitably execute on those Trump supporters.
Yes, it’s depraved and despicable and demented and frankly evil, but hey, this is the FBI and DC Swamp we’re talking about here. You expected something else?
It’s ok to reopen now that a Democrat sock puppet is about to be installed in the presidency. – Speaking of depraved Democrats, communist Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot followed the lead of thug New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday, announcing new plans to suddenly allow the reopening of bars and restaurants in her city. Her hilarious justification for this move is that the bars and restaurants need to reopen now because too many of her beaten-down citizens are holding “large” gatherings of more than 4 people in their homes!
I swear I do not make this stuff up. From a story at the Chicago Tribune:
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Thursday she wants the city’s bars and restaurants to reopen for indoor service “as soon as possible” and plans to discuss the issue with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, despite the fact that the city hasn’t met the state’s requirements for lifting the restrictions.
“I am very, very focused on getting our restaurants reopened. If we look at the various criteria that the state has set, we are meeting most if not all of those. So that’s a conversation that I will have with the governor,” Lightfoot said at a news conference about the city’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution sites. “But I want to get our restaurants and our bars reopened as quickly as possible.”
In fact, the city has not yet reached the metrics set by Pritzker’s administration.
On Thursday, Chicago’s test positivity stood at 10%, according to city statistics. Under the current pandemic rules, the city would have to have a positivity rate of 6.5% or less for three straight days in order for restaurants and bars to reopen.
Lightfoot also said people are holding underground parties that spread COVID-19 and that reopening bars and restaurants to indoor service could help.
“Let’s bring it out of the shadows, let’s allow them to have some recreation in restaurants, in bars, where we can actually work with responsible owners and managers to regulate and protect people from COVID-19, so I feel very strongly that we are very close to a point where we should be talking about opening our bars and restaurants,” Lightfoot said.
The obvious real reason why these Democrat thugs like Lightfoot and Cuomo are suddenly talking about reopening the economies they have destroyed is because none of the closings ever had the slightest thing to do with data or science, as they falsely claimed. Those failed tactics had everything to do with politics and destroying millions of people’s lives and livelihoods in a craven effort to impact the November 3 elections.
These are the very worst people on the face of the earth, and dimwitted Democrat voters keep electing them. Surreal.
Today’s Short Term Memory Reminder… – Hey, remember when hundreds of leftist agitators stormed the Capitol Building during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and posed for photos like this one?:
I do, and now you do, too.
Remember all the uproar and condemnation of this insurrection from the UniParty Democans and Republicrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media when this happened? Yeah, neither do I.
This concludes your Short Term Memory Update for today.
Democrats, promoting “Unity” through slander and lies. – Here is the despicable Don Lemon and steroid freak Fredo Cuomo helping China Joe Potato Head Biden and his sock puppet campaign for “unity” among the American people:

Oh, you don’t saaaaayyyyyy… – Check out this report from CBS News:
#CapitolRiot WATCH: As federal investigators review videos from last week's Capitol assault, they are learning that some rioters used military-style tactics. Those rioters appeared to use methods like hand signals to communicate, suggesting prior training. pic.twitter.com/k4D3s9cs0X

Now, you’ll have to excuse Ms. Herridge and the talking head in the video, since CBS has steadfastly refused to report the truth about the BLM/Antifa riots that have been destroying Democrat-run cities since last May, but the use of “military-style tactics” like “hand signals to communicate” has been the stock in trade of the professional BLM/Antifa rioters since the day those two armed Democrat paramilitary support groups were created.
So yes, the corrupt federal “investigators” are no doubt seeing these things in those videos, which is just further proof that BLM/Antifa agitators played a major planning and execution role in that riot.
This is neither hard nor complicated, folks, if you just pay a little attention.
A little late for this, Mr. President. – Not sure what he’s trying to accomplish at this very late date, but President Donald Trump is finally, at long last going to declassify a bunch of Spygate/Obamagate-related documents today.
From a report at JustTheNews.com:
Delivering in his final days on one of his last unfulfilled promises, President Trump is declassifying a massive trove of FBI documents showing the Russia collusion story was leaked in the final weeks of the 2016 election in an effort to counteract Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
The memos to be released as early as Friday include FBI interviews and human source evaluation reports for two of the main informants in the Russia case, former MI6 agent Christopher Steele and academic Stefan Halper.
The president authorized the release of a foot-high stack of internal FBI and DOJ documents that detail significant flaws in the investigation and provide a detailed timeline of when the FBI first realized the Steele dossier was problematic, multiple government officials told Just the News.
Among the bombshell revelations is an admission by Steele that he violated his confidential human source agreement with the FBI and leaked information from his dossier to the news media in the final weeks of the election because he wanted to counteract new revelations in the Hillary Clinton email scandal that were hurting her election efforts. The former foreign intelligence officer made the confession in a fall 2017 interview with agents.
Don’t get me wrong: I’m all for getting all of these documents and thousands more that remain classified out into the public domain, but this is an action that should have been taken two years ago, when it would have made a difference. Doing it now is like a football team opening up the playbook while trailing by 35 points with 2 minutes remaining in the game. You might get one last touchdown out of it, but the ultimate outcome is a fait accompli.
Look for the corrupt news media to studiously ignore all of this. Because that is what our corrupt news media does.
That is all.
