Members of the National Guard set up a perimeter around the Capitol Building in downtown DC ahead of possible unrest the weekend before the 2021 inauguration.
The FBI is vetting every National Guard member stationed in the nation's capital for Inauguration Day after concerns of a possible attack from within the ranks.

The vetting process, spurned by worries from defense officials, was confirmed by Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy in an interview with The Associated Press.

"We're continually going through the process, and taking second, third looks at every one of the individuals assigned to this operation," McCarthy said.

Honduran migrants, part of a caravan heading to the United States, walk along a road in Camotan, Guatemala, on Jan. 16, 2021.
NBC News reports that a senior Biden transition team member warned the newest caravan of Honduran migrants not to come to the U.S. at this time. The official reportedly advised that if they come they will not be allowed to enter the U.S. — for now.

"The situation at the border isn't going to be transformed overnight," the unnamed transition official told NBC News. "There's help on the way, but now is not the time to make the journey."

Currently, there are multiple programs put in place by the Trump administration to prevent the caravan migrants that are now forcing their way into Guatemala from Honduras from entering the U.S. if they make it this far. Those programs include immigration enforcement programs in the Northern Triangle countries of Central America and Mexico.

New Japanese PM hints at end to dispute with Russia over Kuril Islands that's kept the two countries technically at war since 1945

Yoshihide Suga, Japan's new prime minister, has told his country's parliament that an end to its long-running territorial row with Russia might soon be in sight, potentially signaling closer ties between the two nations.

Speaking at the opening of the parliamentary session on Monday, Suga said the over half-a-century-long diplomatic tensions over the Kuril Islands, "should not be passed on to future generations." The prime minister added that "there should now be a final resolution to it... We will move forward on the basis of previous agreements between the two countries." Later on that day, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov used an annual press conference to welcome future talks with "our Japanese friends" and emphasized the strength of their relationship.

Japan has previously claimed sovereignty over the four southernmost islands of the archipelago, located in the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of the Russian Far East. Historically inhabited by the Ainu people, Moscow insists the islands were handed over to the Soviet Union as part of the 1945 Yalta agreement, in exchange for its part in defeating Imperial Japan in World War Two. The islands have been administered by Russia since then.

Stamos: 'Turn down the capability of these conservative influencers'

The former chief security officer of Facebook suggested conservative news outlets One America News and Newsmax be deplatformed following the siege of the Capitol and the proliferation of "radical views" online.

"We have to turn down the capability of these conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences. There are people on YouTube, for example, that have a larger audience than daytime CNN, and they are extremely radical and pushing extremely radical views," Alex Stamos said Sunday on CNN's Reliable Sources.

Video taken just days before the start of the coronavirus pandemic shows a current World Health Organization (WHO) inspector discuss the testing of modified coronaviruses on human cells and humanized mice in the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), just weeks before the first cases of COVID-19 were announced in the city of Wuhan itself.

In a video that was originally taken on Dec. 9, 2019, three weeks before the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission announced an outbreak of a new form of pneumonia, virologist Vincent Racaniello interviewed British zoologist and president of EcoHealth Alliance Peter Daszak about his work at the nonprofit to protect the world from the emergence of new diseases and predict pandemics. Since 2014, Daszak's organization has received millions of dollars of funding from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), which it has funneled to the WIV to carry out research on bat coronaviruses.

Capitol put on lockdown after fire reported several blocks away

capitol lockdown fire
The Capitol complex was briefly locked down on Monday due to an "external security threat," U.S. Capitol Police said, after a fire was reported several blocks away under a nearby bridge.

An email alert sent out to lawmakers shortly before 10:30 a.m. said that there was no entry or exit from the complex. Those inside the buildings were instructed to stay away from exterior windows and doors. Those outside were ordered to "seek cover."


Comment: RT would add that:
Rehearsals for Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony were interrupted on Monday by an "exterior security threat," according to loudspeaker messages heard by witnesses.


Sheeple

The 'sheep syndrome' being imposed on us

unlosk economy
People are unhappy. Yes, but not enough to stop this tyranny! - Well, I better behave otherwise I'm going to be punished. - FEAR! - Fear leads to the sheep syndrome - that deep-deep social disease which besets us today. They keep to the narrative - MUST wear a mask - MUST keep the safe 2-meter distance - police enforced.

Today and during the last few days new "measures" - restrictions of freedom imposed by governments for reasons of "public health security", i. e. preventing the spread of covid infections - have been tightened throughout Europe. Literally, these treacherous governments say, "we have to tighten the screws". Seriously. WTF - who do they think they are? Servants of the people who elected them and who pay them. This is high treason. But people take it without asking too many questions, some complaints but not strong enough... we are living in the midst of the Sheep Syndrome.

They - these supposedly people friendly governments - call them "measures", a euphemism for lockdown - sounds better in the ears of a public tired of continuous and more and more repressions. This second, in some countries even third lockdown, includes further business closing, more sever control on home-office work, police-enhanced social distancing, mask wearing, no indoor group activities, only 5 people may meet in an apartment... and, and, and.

'As if it was Baghdad': US Secret Service creates fortified 'Capitol Green Zone' ahead of inauguration

U.S. National Guard soldiers staff a checkpoint a few blocks from the Capitol in Washington, U.S. January 15, 2021.
The US Secret Service has created a militarized zone around the nation's capital in the lead-up to Inauguration Day, prompting comparisons to fortifications set up in Baghdad after the US invasion of Iraq.

Amid fears that Joe Biden's swearing-in ceremony on January 20 could spark unrest, authorities have decided to drastically expand a security perimeter established around the Capitol, which was stormed by demonstrators earlier this month.

The new 'red' and 'green' zones laid out by the Secret Service encompass areas near the White House, Lincoln Memorial, National Mall, and the Capitol. Even some nearby residential and commercial areas have been included in the guarded security perimeter. The Secret Service defined the 'Green Zone' as streets that are only accessible to residents and businesses. Individuals who want to travel through the Green Zone will have to show identification. The more extreme 'Red Zone', on the other hand, is closed to all traffic, with the exception of authorized vehicles.

CCTV Cameras Are Being Installed All Over Green and Red Zones in Washington DC
Jim Hoft January 17, 2021 at 10:51am

Democrats are preparing the US Capitol for the inauguration of Joe Biden this week. And already the statement they and their allies are making to the American people is that "we fear you" and "we will crush any dissent."

In the days leading up to the Biden inaugural, the nation's capital has been turned into an occupied military zone like Baghdad. In fact, there are more US troops in the nation's capital today than in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan combined.

Armed US troops authorized to use lethal force are manning checkpoints to enter and leave downtown Washington, D.C. Green Zone and and Red Zone perimeters have been established. Several bridges into the city from neighboring Virginia are scheduled to be closed next week for the inaugural

And now they are putting up CCTV cameras so they can spy on the people they don't trust.

What are they so afraid of? Getting caught on the steal?

We are moving into a new totalitarian rule in our country. And they said Trump was the tyrant?

Surprise! Trudeau wants to turn back clock on free speech

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attends a news conference held to discuss the country's coronavirus disease (COVID-19) response in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Nov. 6, 2020.
Appears feds really want to target speech that offends Liberals

Federal Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault plans to introduce legislation and regulations this year to "protect Canadians online" when using social media.

Be very afraid.

"We intend a comprehensive approach with the tabling of a bill in early 2021 that will apply to the various platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.)," according to a briefing note from his department on "Regulation of Social Media Platforms" to "promote a safer and more inclusive online environment."


Comment: Orwellian double speak. What "inclusive" really means is censoring voices that disagree with the prevailing ideologically liberal positions.


"Social media platforms," it continues, "can ... be used to threaten, intimidate, bully and harass people, or used to promote racist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, misogynistic and homophobic views that target communities, put people's safety at risk and undermine Canada's social cohesion or democracy."

Comment: Trudeau is quite simply a puppet of globalist interests and ideologies. As predictable and mechanical as a wind-up doll.

QAnon: An FBI Psyop?

A man holds up a large "Q" sign while waiting in line to see President Donald J. Trump at his rally on August 2, 2018 at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.
A recent Reuters investigation may indicate that "Q Anon" was in fact an FBI cyber psyop.

The "Q Anon" phenomenon has generally been regarded as a hoax or prank, originated by online message board users in late October 2017, that got out of control. The "Q Anon" persona was preceded by similar personae, including "FBI anon", "CIA anon" and "White House insider anon".

"Q Anon" originally called himself "Q clearance patriot". Former CIA counterintelligence operative Kevin M. Shipp explained that an actual "Q clearance leaker" - i.e. someone possessing the highest security clearance at the US Department of Energy, required to access top secret nuclear weapons information - would have been identified and removed within days.
