Yesterday, we talked about what Washington, DC, looked like on “Inauguration Eve”; namely, an evacuated and secured war zone. Yes, Democrats are sending a message about their newly-established power by turning it into exactly that, but apparently House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had wanted to send it in even stronger terms.

According to Ken Cuccinelli, acting deputy secretary at the Department of Homeland Security, Pelosi had even wanted “crew-manned machine guns” (!!!). But her request was turned down, he said Tuesday evening to Martha MacCallum on FOX NEWS, “because there’s simply no use for that in a security arrangement for a civilian undertaking.”

In case you’re a leftist who pretends to know about guns but doesn’t know BBs about them, the term “machine guns” refers to fully automatic weapons, a giant step beyond the semiautomatic weapons used by many for hunting and self-defense that are so often condemned by the left. “Crew-manned machine guns” are probably best known by their associations with front-line warfare and also mass executions of Jews and other enemies by Nazi soldiers during the Holocaust. They mow people down. Personal, hand-held automatic weapons were used to commit shocking mob violence in America during Prohibition.

Just think of the image this would have projected, regardless of whether or not these guns were even loaded. I realize those on the left are trying to make a point about their new dominance, but this over-the-top show of power is shameful and dangerous and tells us a lot about their current state of mind. If anything would incite violence, it’s not Trump, who left quietly, but this symbolic boot-heel.

Pelosi had also requested, through the Capitol Police, the many thousands of extra troops, Cuccinelli said, adding, “Some of this has gone beyond any legitimate security need. But they’re disciplined, they’re professional, and the Secret Service has been choreographing this very effectively to maintain security and safety.”

When asked why there was a call for “such a tremendous force,” Cuccinelli said “all of it arose on January 6,” partially because Congress was the target.

"At the same time,” he wondered aloud, “where was this concern for the rest of America?”

Good question. He continued: “But when their own [Congress's] butt was on the line, all of a sudden they want every troop and soldier they can find to protect THEM.” He said they’re perfectly happy to do what it takes to keep members safe, but “not at the sacrifice of the rest of America.”

"Congressmen aren’t more important than any other American,” he said, and the DHS has been trying to keep everyone safe “through this entire difficult year.”

Pelosi’s requests were so out of proportion to any known threat that it actually prompted none other than Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib to join nine of her colleagues, including the other far-left members of “The Squad,” in writing to Pelosi and Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urging that national security powers not be expanded.

Consistent with the “even-a-broken-clock-is-right-twice-a-day” theory, they wrote, “We firmly believe that the national security and surveillance powers of the U.S. government are already too broad, undefined, and unaccountable to the people.” Though the letter makes some points I’d gladly debate –- including their description of the July 6th attackers simply as a “Trump mob,” as if Trump had sent them –- it must be snowing in Hades because I never thought I’d agree with Rep. Tlaib about anything, even a little.

The letter is also endorsed by the Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR), and the leftist organizations Demand Progress, Free Press and Win Without War. Could this be an issue on which at least some on both the left and right can find common ground?

"For our part,” the legislators wrote, “we pledge to oppose any attempts to expand the domestic national security or surveillance powers of the United States government at the expense of the rights of our people with every tool available to us as duly-elected members of Congress.” Is it too much to hope that when they say “our” people, they’re actually including Trump supporters? Most Democrat leaders hardly consider Trump supporters to be people at all, let alone “our people.” So pardon me if I can’t help thinking there’s something about this I’m missing.

MacCallum also reported Tuesday that pipe bombs were found at the entrances to both the RNC and the DNC headquarters. The unusually non-partisan bomber, as of this writing, is still at large.

In an update to the story on National Guard troops being “ideologically vetted,” Kevin Corke on FOX NEWS said Tuesday afternoon that the head of the Guard has confirmed that a dozen members have been removed from duty because of “suspected far-right extremist ties.” The decision to take them off inauguration duty was apparently based on “inappropriate texts or comments” these members had made. We're not told what they said that was considered inappropriate but would love to know.

Cuccinelli emphasized, “There is NO --- I repeat, NO --- identified threat from any of these people to the inauguration, or any suggestion that I’m aware of that any of them had any intention to do anything other than their duty in the National Guard.” The Secretary of Defense concurred, he said. This is what Cuccinelli called a function of the heightened anxiety in Washington.

"If only they’d been so anxious about the violence all across the country for the last year, we might not have gotten to a point where this seemed to some people to be an acceptable form of political expression,” he said. Agreed, though I'd stress that the vast majority on the right still find it totally unacceptable.

Check out the BABYLON BEE’s satirical PSA about how we learn to riot.

Chad Wolf, former acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, said this level of vetting is “the same as the vetting that was done for most inaugurations.” That includes the involvement of the Secret Service and the FBI.

We respectfully disagree that this is normal, as they’re now apparently picking apart every last tweet and chance acquaintance, placing tens of thousands of troops –- American troops –- under the intense scrutiny of multiple bureaus. This deployment represents the largest military presence in Washington in American history during peacetime. Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, who, as he puts it, “spent my life in the preparedness and security field,” DOES find the current steps deeply concerning, linking to this from Sara Carter.

The message it sends our troops: we don’t trust you.

Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott doesn’t think the vetting is normal at all and, in fact, is highly offended that the troops he sends would be subjected to this. He tweeted on Monday, “This is the most offensive thing I’ve ever heard. No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard.”

Texas sent more than 1,000 National Guardsmen to Washington for the inauguration, but Gov. Abbott said, “I’ll never do it again if they are disrespected like this.

As BREITBART editor and host Joel Pollack noted on Monday, DILBERT creator Scott Adams (who also hosts the enlightening daily podcast “Coffee with Scott Adams”) remarked that “once you start evaluating soldiers for political loyalty, you are on your way to creating something like a Revolutionary Guard that protects one party or leader. Democrats are becoming what they think Trump is.”

"Becoming”? The Democrats, as a party, are THERE.

    Gov. Huckabee, I respect you so much, thanks for giving conservatives a forum. I wrote on my FB that I wished the hate would stop, because , Hate consumes the hater, and motivates the hated. I am one who struggles with this. But I am normal . I am a Trump supporter but I do not need to be reprogrammed, or reeducated. I have always thought this way. These ideas are repulsive. Why cant someone put these news hosts on the spot with their commentary?? Who is spreading venomous stereotypes? Not me.

    Growing up in the country we learned a very valuable lesson— either you ignore the smells coming from the fields and barn and keep doing what ever it is you’re doing or try— it was never successful— to hold your breath and wait for the wind to blow the smell away! The smell we are going to have coming from Washington DC is going to be so bad, folks don’t try holding your breath. Just ignore it as best as possible. I’m saving my breath holding for the next rounds of elections. “AND THE WINNER IS—-???!!!”—- God save us.

    What has happened to our country that these crazy people without an ounce of common sense comes up with some stupid comment or dangerous decision? It’s time to roll time back a bit to where everyone was sober and didn’t have a complex about something. As to OUR PRESIDENT 45, he said that being President was a great honor, from where I stand, we were HONORED to have him. I hope he will remain involved in our country’s future.

    i have been grieved at reading all the crude/rude remarks that have been made about Pres. Trump and his beautiful wife, Melania. What is becoming of our nation, and when are people going to realize that the democrats are the ones causing the violence and disruption to unity?

    It is all about optics and propaganda! If they can make people believe they are the ones being attacked then every new attack by the violent left will be presented by the complicity media as an attack on the left ! Very calculated and the majority of GOP are just rolling with it ! We need Trump to start a new 3 rd party ( called WE THe PEOPLE) and I think there are 75 million people who will be happy to join!!

    01/20/2021 03:42 PM

    Dear Governor Huckabee,

    I am heartbroken and angry about the November travesty. The democrats have managed to gain power through lying, cheating and never ending propaganda. It’s amazing to me that they were so blatant about it and still got by with the biggest anti-American swindle in history. Plus, they had their gift of COVID from Joe’s buddies in China. That said, it is not why I am writing today.

    I am outraged with the behavior of the democrats, their propagandists and all that are aiding and abetting in the actions intended to completely destroy President Trump, his family, current and former members of his administration, congressional members, in both houses, who ever spoke of in his favor and anyone else who publicly expressed support or (*gasp!*) expressed any concern about the 2020 election. CEOs of large companies are joining in, cancelling donations to the GOP.

    They are trying to deny our first amendment rights. Parler has been taken down and big tech has decided to quash opinions, especially anyone who has positive comments about the Trump administration and supporters. I read, yesterday, that there is an effort to remove Newsmax and OAN from television.

    Many people are blaming the president for the attack on the Capitol. I understand why they blamed it on his enthusiastic rally attendees. That’s how it looked initially. Now we know that it was planned by Insurrection USA, Antifa and other anarchists. It was harmful to the president and supporters and the House and Senate members were,rightfully, terrified and angry. But, they, again (still), will not condemn Anarchist factions destroying cities and neighborhoods. They have, defended and encouraged this behavior. Violence has even been encouraged by Maxine Waters and her ilk. And there is the bail fund, for these “mostly peaceful protesters” that was set up and advertised by our new VP.

    Today I read an article about several retail sales companies who have canceled My Pillow product. Why? Well, Mike Lindell’s words, of course. They tried to pull that on Goya foods. That did not go well for the haters. I am going to cancel Bed Bath and Beyond, Wayfair, HEB, and others who pull this stunt. I will no longer buy anything from them and will purchase extra from others, like I did with Goya products.
    I am also upset about GOP politicians jumping on the left’s bandwagon. If they want to save their careers, they should not turn their back on their constituents or any of the other 74 million of the deplorable, silent majority who shop at Walmart and cling to their Bibles and guns.

    The crazy is building up steam. They will either burn themselves out or succeed to take complete control. I pray we, the people, prevail. Otherwise, our great-grandchildren will be speaking Chinese.

    God Bless,
    Cindy Taylor

    Governor, Today was Inauguration Day for Mr. Biden, I greatly respect the office of President but have absolutely no respect for Mr. Biden. Yes he will be my President and hopefully will fulfill the duties of the office without prejudice, it will surprise me. All the talk about Mr. Trumps mistreatment is exactly that and nothing will ever be done, no prosecution, no indictments, no censure, nothing. It saddens me that our great country has become what it is, but it’s what we got. Pray for our nation, pray for Biden, and pray for Mr. Trump. I am truely afraid of what’s to come, without God we are doomed!

    I do not think any reporter has looked into the acreage located in each state that has been designated for the sole use to China. I know Gov Butch Otter designated land outside the Mt. Home airforce base and a recent Ariz Republic newspaper said acreage not too far from Luke Air Force base (purchased....leased??).

    Does that country also control some of our ports?

    I really feel China is an internal threat to the US; perhaps you feel these questions are interesting enough to investigate.

    I agree that the democrats have gone too far. Just look at their cabinet appointments. People who hate this country and many who have huge issues of their own, ethically and politically. We need to pray that we can survive the next 4 years as a country. May God continue to Bless America and keep us from falling apart.....unless of course this is a part of the lead up to our Rapture!!! Get ready people!! My heart is heavy for our great country!!

    It is all about optics and propaganda! If they can make people believe they are the ones being attacked then every new attack by the violent left will be presented by the complicity media as an attack on the left ! Very calculated and the majority of GOP are just rolling with it ! We need Trump to start a new 3 rd party ( called WE THe PEOPLE) and I think there are 75 million people who will be happy to join!!

    As of today I am no longer a Republican and I will no longer focus on politics.

    Dear Governor Huckabee,

    I am heartbroken and angry about the November travesty. The democrats have managed to gain power through lying, cheating and never ending propaganda. It’s amazing to me that they were so blatant about it and still got by with the biggest anti-American swindle in history. Plus, they had their gift of COVID from Joe’s buddies in China. That said, it is not why I am writing today.

    I am outraged with the behavior of the democrats, their propagandists and all that are aiding and abetting in the actions intended to completely destroy President Trump, his family, current and former members of his administration, congressional members, in both houses, who ever spoke of in his favor and anyone else who publicly expressed support or (*gasp!*) expressed any concern about the 2020 election. CEOs of large companies are joining in, cancelling donations to the GOP.

    They are trying to deny our first amendment rights. Parler has been taken down and big tech has decided to quash opinions, especially anyone who has positive comments about the Trump administration and supporters. I read, yesterday, that there is an effort to remove Newsmax and OAN from television.

    Many people are blaming the president for the attack on the Capitol. I understand why they blamed it on his enthusiastic rally attendees. That’s how it looked initially. Now we know that it was planned by Insurrection USA, Antifa and other anarchists. It was harmful to the president and supporters and the House and Senate members were,rightfully, terrified and angry. But, they, again (still), will not condemn Anarchist factions destroying cities and neighborhoods. They have, defended and encouraged this behavior. Violence has even been encouraged by Maxine Waters and her ilk. And there is the bail fund, for these “mostly peaceful protesters” that was set up and advertised by our new VP.

    Today I read an article about several retail sales companies who have canceled My Pillow product. Why? Well, Mike Lindell’s words, of course. They tried to pull that on Goya foods. That did not go well for the haters. I am going to cancel Bed Bath and Beyond, Wayfair, HEB, and others who pull this stunt. I will no longer buy anything from them and will purchase extra from others, like I did with Goya products.
    I am also upset about GOP politicians jumping on the left’s bandwagon. If they want to save their careers, they should not turn their back on their constituents or any of the other 74 million of the deplorable, silent majority who shop at Walmart and cling to their Bibles and guns.

    The crazy is building up steam. They will either burn themselves out or succeed to take complete control. I pray we, the people, prevail. Otherwise, our great-grandchildren will be speaking Chinese.

    God Bless,
    Cindy Taylor

    Governor, Today was Inauguration Day for Mr. Biden, I greatly respect the office of President but have absolutely no respect for Mr. Biden. Yes he will be my President and hopefully will fulfill the duties of the office without prejudice, it will surprise me. All the talk about Mr. Trumps mistreatment is exactly that and nothing will ever be done, no prosecution, no indictments, no censure, nothing. It saddens me that our great country has become what it is, but it’s what we got. Pray for our nation, pray for Biden, and pray for Mr. Trump. I am truely afraid of what’s to come, without God we are doomed!

    We left USA. We don't get good reception. I am glad. All Europe angry that Trump not re-elected. Strong word "hate" but we feel like Dems cannot add...more votes than registered! God help us all!

    Dear sir,
    I am a new subscriber. I am already depending on your level-headed, knowledgeable articles to give me a true view of what is going on in my country. Thank you and please keep writing.

    I do not think any reporter has looked into the acreage located in each state that has been designated for the sole use to China. I know Gov Butch Otter designated land outside the Mt. Home airforce base and a recent Ariz Republic newspaper said acreage not too far from Luke Air Force base (purchased....leased??).

    Does that country also control some of our ports?

    I really feel China is an internal threat to the US; perhaps you feel these questions are interesting enough to investigate.

    I don't understand why some one affect by the Facebook, twitter, amazon, high techs monopolies has not filed a lawsuit to strike down sec 230 as being unconstitutional. The first amendment states the congress MAY NOT create a law the restricts freedom of speech. In effect 230 does so.

    Everything is in God’s hands.
    We need to pray for this administration to seek God’s Will in every step of the way.
    This is our prayer and hope .
    Our prayers will always continue for President Trump, his family and their continued influence upon the United States .
    May we always be thankful for President Trump and his administration’s phenomenal contribution to their beloved country.

    Is it possible the squad wants less troops so their insurgents are strong enough to cause chaos, just like they have all of 2020 in "peaceful riots" around the USA??

    Would love to read daily but comments are too long and too verbose. Just get to the point.

    Thanks

    I agree that the democrats have gone too far. Just look at their cabinet appointments. People who hate this country and many who have huge issues of their own, ethically and politically. We need to pray that we can survive the next 4 years as a country. May God continue to Bless America and keep us from falling apart.....unless of course this is a part of the lead up to our Rapture!!! Get ready people!! My heart is heavy for our great country!!
