is going on right now.... multiple instances of folks being stopped with arsenals in their trunks...
I feel like it was waaaaaay too easy for ME when I went through the checkpoint by bicycle last Thursday ...and I was able to witness firsthand the process of how vehicles are passed through. My hot take then was that the shit was janky as hell...theater....hopefully they've stepped it waaaaay up since then.
The fact that i'm also in Arlington which is pretty much literally the only barrier between the Capitol area.... yeah... I just don't know. I see a few too many suspect military folks coming to & from JBMH on my daily comings and goings around my house.

still way too much of the news percolating up that's put me on edge the past few weeks...
Doesn't help that we started watching Handmaids on Hulu about 2 weeks ago and we just got to the episode where they start explaining the events that lead up to the current state of the society.... there was a line in there something to the effect of "First we attack the congress, then the white house, then the courts..."
Me and my wife both looked at each other like "..the fuuuuuuckk????"
2 National Guard Members Removed From Inauguration Duty After Militia Links Found
Two U.S. Army National Guard members are being removed from the security mission to secure Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration.
The two National Guard members have been found to have ties to fringe right group militias, a U.S. Army official and a senior U.S. intelligence official said.
A total of 25,000 National Guard troops were actively supporting D.C. and the effort to secure the inauguration as of Tuesday morning, officials told NBC News.
No plot against Biden was found.
The Army official and the intelligence official spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity due to Defense Department media regulations. They did not say which fringe group the Guard members belonged to or what unit they served in.
Contacted by the AP on Tuesday, the National Guard Bureau referred questions to the U.S. Secret Service and said, “Due to operational security, we do not discuss the process nor the outcome of the vetting process for military members supporting the inauguration.”

Particularly this bourbon one I joined to keep track of what people are interested in for my own buying purposes at my shop that in the past two days has exploded with photos of guns posed next to their drams, which has never been a trend in three years as part of the group. Desert Eagles, AR-15s, anything you can think of.
And our (NE) governor is openly inviting people to the state capitol - specifically tomorrow, the 20th - building for tours but asks that they please respect the grounds they walk on as they do.
The fuck is that? Any of it?
I asked for the day off of work today so I can drink about it.
