This a.m. the news said deadly force would be used in DC at least. Also chatter around insurrectionist communication “don’t go to DC. Go to state targets” (paraphrased) Don’t know what states will do with protection...deadly force or no.

2. Capitol Attackers' Tactics, New Plans Emerge With Arrests

He planned to take and perhaps execute hostages. That’s how federal prosecutors characterize a handcuff-equipped retired Air Force officer arrested in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol. His is one of more than 100 cases offering new details of the event, such as the retiree urging “patriots” online to “shoot their way in.” Dozens of rioters were reportedly on terrorist watchlists, indicating intelligence lapses. But enforcement might be working: The leader of the far-right Proud Boys claims members will “take a chill pill,” and like similar groups avoid Washington, D.C., where “this part of the battle is over.

You'd have to be pretty stupid to face the forces in DC. But some of these folks are not the sharpest knives in the drawer. And some are capable of making bombs and napalm.

I'm worried about Richmond. That would definitely be a target.

I was telling my husband just this morning that I think state capitols will the targets this weekend/inauguration day. The only good thing about that is at least they will be diluted, but then there might also be more "locals" that show up.
They were putting more security around the capitol here in Atlanta, so I hope they have planned well enough for whatever happens.

Something happening to a state capitol would also draw a nasty Federal response. You know, the military - drones, bombs, nukes. Enjoy your protest, Cletus.

Yeah, I hope they stay home, but they seem to be needing to do something, anything, right now.

My state is probably setting up a voter's registration booth and job interviews, maybe even play pin the tail on the donkey.

Ohio guard is deployed to the state capitol right now. So are the staties.

I want all these Maganuts to get arrested and jailed. And for them to discover that the law DOES apply to them.

Maybe they should all agree to meet over at Gettysburg instead of downtown.

I hear they're putting up "Recall Gavin" and "Impeach Gavin" petition signature tents/booths all around the Capitol in Sacramento, with no security presence (other than the cameras collecting images of the peeps, er, perps for facial rec) to garner info on the Orangangers. In addition, there's gonna be some "Trump was right.... far right!", "Enroll in Insurrection v.2", "Sedition Now!" tents/booths offering free (fake) pepper spray (and other faux weapons), to grab images of even more of 'em. On the steps of the State Capitol there will be "Free Hot Dogs & Lemonade for Trump Supporters" stands. Draped over the entrances to the Capitol compounds will be "Trump Won, 2020!" banners.

Hit 'em w/ kindly force (and info/image grabbing) instead of deadly force.
Disarm 'em w/ syrupy sweetness, so no need to make a federal case at our State Capitol.

Ahhhh, a boy and his dreams.

Gavin activated somewhere over 1000 Guard troops for deployment in Sacramento - maybe we can send Hal over to report back.
