On Wednesday, when Joe Biden is inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States, Washington, DC, will host nearly 30,000 armed troops, more than five times the number currently stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. For the first time, the entire week preceding the inauguration was declared a “National Special Security Event.”

As described by THE EPOCH TIMES, the city has been brought “to almost a complete halt. More than a dozen Metro stations around the National Mall and the U.S. Capitol Building were closed...the streets of Washington are eerily empty. Buses, streetcars and other forms of public transportation, even bicycles, have been shut down. Most stores are closed, and many have been boarded up.”


The area for blocks around the White House looks like a war zone.

Now, if the new administration really were afraid of some kind of armed insurrection, they could've simply announced that the oath of office would take place inside the White House with streaming video for all who cared to watch. Truly, many of us will be finding better things to do. Even Trump has kindly RSVP'd that he and his "plus-one" will not be attending, thank-you-very-much.

The pandemic would've given Biden the perfect reason to take it inside. But no, Democrats WANT the accompanying visuals of an occupied city, a militarized zone, the rows of National Guard troops bussed in from every state, the bomb detectors, the dogs, the block after block of high fencing topped by razor wire. Because it makes a statement the likes of which we have never seen.

A statement about conservatives.

All this theater is to convey the message that anyone who didn’t support Biden, who (gasp) might have voted for Trump and who (double gasp) might even slightly question one single vote is –- like Trump himself –- a “dangerous extremist" and WILL be kept in check.

The media have their role to play in making this connection, of course. Don’t click on this link unless you have a strong stomach, but...this is CNN.

So far, though, things have been calm, and Trump has told his supporters to remain peaceful. He said, "In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking, and NO violence of any kind. That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You.”

I will never make light of what happened on January 6 or try to shift blame away from those on the right who participated as some have done. That said, it was a relative handful of brain-dead protesters (augmented, as we have learned, by some Antifa and BLM) who breached the Capitol and horrified most conservatives.

Never mind all the looting, burning and assorted violence during 2020 in “blue” cities that were turned into occupied zones for real. And never mind the pathetic lack of crowd control around the Capitol. The left is using the Capitol Hill breach as an excuse to treat all conservatives like members of ISIS.

Think I’m kidding? Oh, this is going to get much worse.

As Tucker Carlson reported Monday night, Democrats, to ramp-up the drama, demanded that all troops sent to Washington for Inauguration Week undergo a sort of “ideological vetting” (their words), to make sure every one of them professes loyalty to the new regime. “Not loyalty to our country, not loyalty to our Constitution, but loyalty to the aims of a specific political party,” was the way he put it.

The concern among leftists apparently was that the National Guard is mostly white, male and conservative-leaning, with only about 25 percent of them having voted for Biden. Memphis Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen (also white and male, incidentally) assumes that the other 75 percent “are in the large class of folks who might want to, uh, do something.”

"Do something”? If Rep. Cohen stands by this –- he said it on CNN, among friends –- it sure sounds as if he suspects the 75 percent of the National Guard that is white, male and conservative of wanting to assassinate the incoming President.

I wonder how the more conservative members of the Guard might think about this. What about all those Americans who join out of love of country and would never dream of “doing something” to government officials of either party? Now they’re automatically suspect?

Gen. William Walker said on GOOD MORNING, AMERICA that members of the Guard are being “screened before they leave their state. It’s a “credentialing process so they’re screened and they’re repeatedly screened until they are actually put out on the street.” Also, “it's layered so the FBI is part of it, the Secret Service is part of it, and once they are certain there’s no insider threat, then that soldier, guardsman or airman is given a credential. Gen. Walker did not elaborate on the nature of the “inside threat.”


In a statement, the Army said they’re working with the FBI to identify all who were part of the attack on the Capitol to see if any of those people have a connection to the Army. And that makes sense if those individuals were part of the violence. But if they just happened to be in the huge, overwhelmingly peaceful crowd of Trump supporters, we are heading into dangerous territory.

Here’s another report about the vetting of troops, but leading into that discussion are pictures of something we don’t quite know what to make of. Are “armed” soldiers patrolling the streets around the White House and Capitol with rifles that don’t have magazines? We’re not offering any speculation about what this means, just expressing bewilderment.

It does seem we might have an intra-military conflict brewing, with those who share the ideology of the incoming administration to be trusted and those who disagree with it to be suspected. If it’s true, this is a far cry from what the military used to be, with Republicans and Democrats proudly fighting alongside one another, as buddies, to defend their flag and their nation. This radical change is a prescription for disaster.

And how will the new administration know who is with them or against them? Why, they’ll have to spy on them, of course, with a new internal spy agency created just to deal with “domestic terrorism.” And that is already in the works, in the form of a bill with over 100 co-sponsors in the House.

Leftists will love this new power as a way to go after “pro-Trump fanatics.” Every word uttered by every conservative white male in America (especially if he owns guns and a MAGA hat) will likely be monitored if this becomes law, and not just by Facebook and Twitter. It's like another Patriot Act for these times --- what could go wrong?

    It looks like their expecting WWIII. This is a sad state of affairs in our country. I was so hoping President Trump would put a stop to all this before he left office and invoke Marshall law and have all those corrupt politicians arrested. But, even after heartfelt prayer, I know God is in control and his will be done. I will not fear because my God is near.

We will be peaceful as we always are as the President said we should do and we know how much he loves this country and it’s people. Do I believe the destruction at the Capital was planned by BLM, Antifa, the democrats, yes I do. Thank you.

    Can you imagine if President Trump had tried this in Washington state or Oregon when they had the Antifa protests? The left would have been screaming at him, but I thought he should have done something like this because I knew this is the way they would re-act!
    Maybe this is what Biden learned from his dealings with China, how to control the people!

    Thanks to you and Tucker Carlson we know the truth!

    I was horrified and insulted to hear that the new administration doesn't trust the National Guard! These young men and women have given much to our country and have sworn an oath to protect America. How do they then have to "prove" their loyalty to one man? Not all white men should be suspected of disloyalty just because of their race and gender. Isn't that racial profiling"?

    This all seems unreal. No president in American History, and not in the time I've been alive (I'm in my 60's) has ever needed guarding by so many military troops. This scenario so reminds me of other socialist leaders that had military surrounding them as they took office. I thought that was only in movies, but it's happening here. I'm swallowing the fear that wells up now and again. I hesitate to see "evangelical Christian" at the top of the list of ideological enemies they conjure up, but who know? Jesus said we would suffer persecution - is this it? Not that I'm fearful, I just don't put it past those presently taking power. Those who take power on this earth should seek to know the One who is the source of ALL power, lest it is wrested from their hands... Hopefully, Biden doesn't have to learn the lesson about power the way Nebuchadnezzar did, or many of the other rulers in the book of Kings in the bible, but who knows? Something tells me that this country is ripe for a lesson or two on turning your back on God. Hang in there, Remnant. Buckle your seat belt, get on your knees, pray your socks off for this country, and watch the spectacle. That's all I can say. Not fear, just a call to prayer that's long overdue.

    Excellent analysis about DC War Zone. So much is optics. It feels like Nancy Pelosi's EVIL handling of Covid relief was the catalyst for lack of preparedness on Jan. 6 and this phony show for tomorrow.
    I worked in a Holocaust Education Center for 12 years. The liberal cancel culture/racial profiling/ plans for "re-education" are eerily familiar.

    This is the most disturbing start of a new presidential agenda I have ever seen. I am scared beyond by belief of what I am experiencing, and especially for my children and grandchildren. God Bless us all, we truly are going to need it.
    I knew things were tough over the last few years, but I truly never thought we would really be headed to a socialist society so soon. I had hung on to hope that our Conservative party would be able to hold on, and we could continue to be a God fearing America. Unfortunately, we ended up with a lot of turn coat, treasonous Republican leaders... in the likes of Mitch McConnell, Kevin McCarthy, Bill Barr and so many others. I am disappointed and scared.
    What a world we are headed to when we have, not our politicians but big tech basically leading the country.
    Sad day for Americans. ??

    Dear Gov. Huckabee: Thanks for caring what I think, 1st of all. How well do you (and I ) know Facists or Marxists?...I have learned that they, like their leader Karl Marx, "hate God" and "hate God's people"; however, remember the scriptures where the Lord Jesus told Pilate that he would have no power over him at all, unless it had been given to him from above? So, I believe God let Biden and the other Dems have power at this time; but God's will - will be done nevertheless! We know that, right? Thank you for all you do; my husband and I follow you and the show!

    It is extremely frightening to think about a Biden/Harris leadership. To think that all the good that President Trump has accomplished being destroyed in one day is unforgiveable. I myself don't believe that Biden won fairly, but all the evidence is being removed from view (Italy article about Dominion voting machines). People have been brainwashed to think that Trump was wrong and Biden is right. Put on the Armor of God and pray. Stand up for our beliefs! God is still in control. Pray for protection of our country before it is destroyed!

    The scene of 30,000 National Guard troops surrounding the inauguration of an illigitimate soon to be resident of the White House because of a stolen election, should be an alarming wake-up call. The military surrounding China Joe should make people see that scene is one that plays out in Communist countries like N. Korea or Iran. Will the new fraudulent Biden-Harris go full steam ahead to go after Conservatives, Christians, Patriots- Absolutely!!!! Thanks corrupt RINO'S, Swamp Court of the United States, phony state Supreme Courts for allowing an election to be stolen and not wanting to hear evidence, facts and truth. What happened to over 1000 affidavits, the investigation of the Dominion voting machines, the camera evidence of voting place crookedness. What happened at the Capitol on January 6th was a complete set-up, planned and schemed up by Dem-Socialist, RINO'S, with almost all Republicans using the Capitol scene as an excuse to not present evidence or back up President Trump. Most Republicans only represent the dirty, corrupt D.C. swamp and 80+ supporters of President Trump won't forget these phony corrupt and probably China bought and paid for fake Republicans, who try to convince We the People that they are conservatives as they talk out both sides of their mouth!! Only a half dozen Republicans stood up and now they are being targeted. The rest of the Republicans just traitorous swamp creatures. Other swamp creatures include AG Barr and way too many in the DOJ, FBI, etc. We are in for disasterous times with the Dem-Socialist out to fundamentally transform, ruin and destroy our America. Thanks again RINO'S, Enemies of the People- all MSM and big tech companies and ignorant blind Biden voters and for all involved in allowing an election to be stolen and doing nothing about it!!!

    The Democrats are today's Nazi Party. They are fascists, hate Jews and would like to see the destruction of the State of Israel.

    The Republican Party also is no longer the Republican Party. They are complicit liars who do nothing (except for a few good patriots.) I will no longer support the Republican Party in any manner. Time for a Patriot Party.

    The idea of a military junta headed by Biden/Harris scares me more than the fear of continued fraudulent elections.

    How long will the decent white men in this country take this until they begin to react? Most white men are decent human beings, as well as black men for that matter, and Asian men, and Latino men. Do these white men running these companies and supporting the Dems think they are somehow exempted? One problem I see is that some may gravitate to the more violent supremacist groups. We don’t want that. Right now the GOP is in chaos. I hope that can be fixed. I am sorry to say but .I think the grand experiment is done with. Another I don’t understand is how Dems keep saying whites conservatives are anti Semitic when most support Israel big time and most Libs are sympathetic to the PLO. I have seen more and more minority faces on conservative shows and columns. Hoorah. They are getting it because they are smart and one way or the other getting educated.

    None of this surprises me. As a Christian and a Nam War vet I have seen a slow erosion of the military over the decades. The DOD is full of CRC advocates niw. The War College now reaches CRC. Both land and sea forces now have " commissars" to insure all talk in lock step.
    With Sleepy and his consort in we will become a protectorate of the "Great Red Nation" of Red China. The CCP will dictate thru their puppet Joe.
    Out here in the Pacific Northwest the churches have imploded and are accepting Fascist Joe and Kamala's teachings.
    I can no longer feel safe in a church due to the hatred the Karen's are spewing
    Believers in persecuted nations can teach us how to live for Christ .

    Hello Mike,
    I don't leave comments on sites. I am not on Twitter, Facebook, or any social media sites. I did put the Parler App on my IPHONE before they took the platform offline. My husband and I voted for you in the Republican Primary. As we all know, Donald Trump won. I am a lifetime Republican and will continue to be. We may not have liked all that Trump said and did, but I still feel he was the best President in my lifetime. I just watched his farewell speech on FOX news. I kept flipping back to other networks to see if they aired it as well. I am so upset that they did not air the full speech, or the speech at all. This is the President of the United States. Everyone should be able to hear what he has to say. It is disgusting what the media and Dem's have done to our country. I am very upset and sad what our country has and will become with them in charge. They are so filled with hatred and are also liars. It is sad to see half of the US believes them. I have friends that support them, and I am finding it a bit difficult to not say something to them about their choices. But, I bite my tongue, even if they don't. I look up to you, and I love your daughter Sarah. I am a lifelong Floridian, I pray our state does not turn Blue. Well, I just had to write you and let you know I appreciate your daily email and will continue to support the republican party.

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    I’m so distraught about the lack of leadership in the Republican Party. The party is fractured & has no leadership. I’ve been shocked & dismayed to see leading Republicans, such as Senator Tom Cotton from my home state of AR, turn against the President. I’m in shock the way that Senators Ted Cruz & Josh Harley have been persecuted. What is the Republican Party doing to defend & protect them? The party has no leadership. Republican Senators & Congressmen/women, have apparently been bullied, threatened, black mailed or paid off. Who will stand up for conservatives? Who will represent us? I know that God is in control, but will He send leadership to mend the fractured party? I’ve been a donor to Republicans running for office, but I have no interest in supporting Republicans unless they can get their act together. I’ve recently joined Republican Women, but feel discouraged about it. One thing is certain. Democrats stand together, even for bad stuff. Please share my concerns w/leaders within the party. I appreciate reading your newsletters morning & evening. God’s Word is the only truth. However, I trust the information that you share. Thank you. Janie Russell
