they are late for the inauguration. That was a month ago.

About 700 people expected for 'J6' rally, DHS official says

Roughly 700 people are expected to attend the “Justice for J6” rally on Saturday, according to an official at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Pro-Trump protesters have plans to travel to Washington, D.C., this weekend to attend the rally, which is being held in support of people who were charged with crimes related to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, according to NBC News.

DHS expects that a number of demonstrators connected to the groups that stormed the Capitol will return for Saturday’s event.

The department, however, says that the expected crowd will likely be far less than the thousands of protesters who flocked to the nation’s capital at the beginning of the year.

Melissa Smislova, the deputy undersecretary for intelligence enterprise readiness at DHS, said during Tuesday’s Homeland Security Enterprise Forum that the department has been tracking publicly available information on protesters, permit applications for large gatherings with the U.S. Park Police and hotel reservations to gauge how many protesters are expected to attend the rally, according to NBC News.

Smislova also said that DHS has learned through social media posts that similar demonstrations are set to take place in other cities throughout the country, according to NBC.

Wonder what their rally attire will be. Will they be wearing helmets, body armor and ready for battle?

Again, something about how the last one turned out, I would guess.

700, just about the exact number of people arrested for their J6 actions.

I hope this signals the dying echos of The Big Lie. But I'm afraid that even though it may be small that it represents the more passive side of the patriot* mob. It's the second amendment patriots that worry me.

*In Trump world a patriot is anyone who believes in Trump and believes what he says and is willing to act - to varying degrees - to have his will be imposed upon the homeland. Amen.

Back in my day, I think we called this the government spying on the public. I can understand looking at social media posts, which are kind of -- by definition -- out there in the public domain. But the part about checking on hotel reservations would have been kind of creepy in the 1960s environment.

Good one!





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
