    " An internal FBI bulletin warned that, as of Sunday, the nationwide protests may start later this week and extend through Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration. "

    We're entering dangerous days ahead. Whatever liberals and progressives do, they should remove their Biden/Harris campaign signs from the vehicles and front yards, or anything related to their campaign. I have a feeling these far right groups will be targeting government officials and ordinary citizens.

    “No matter how all this plays out, its only the beginning,” posted a user on TheDonald message board, according to the report.

    What is interesting about the demographic differences between Democrats and Republicans, Democratic groups such as Black Lives Matter are focused on bringing about change through non-voliont protesting, while republican groups tend to believe that the most effective way to bring about political change is through violence\war\destruction. These are two very different perspectives. Non-Violence vs Violence. Non Violent protesting by republicans is difficult for them to do because it is not their nature. Their nature is to attack and destroy, that is how they try to solve problems. A hammer, a baseball bat, and a gun is what they use to solve problems.

    Capitol Police briefed Democrats on Monday night about three more potentially gruesome demonstrations planned in the coming days, with one plot to encircle the U.S. Capitol and assassinate Democrats and some Republicans.

    The first is a demonstration billed as the “largest armed protest ever to take place on American soil.”

    Another is a protest in honor of Ashli Babbitt, the woman killed while trying to climb into the Speaker’s Lobby during Wednesday’s pro-Trump siege of the Capitol.

    And another demonstration, which three members said was by far the most concerning plot, would involve insurrectionists forming a perimeter around the Capitol, the White House and the Supreme Court, and then blocking Democrats from entering the Capitol ― perhaps even killing them ― so that Republicans could take control of the government.

    One Democrat on the call also raised the issue of security for members coming from their residences to the Capitol, as well as traveling to Washington, given recent confrontations at airports and on flights between some protesters and lawmakers. One member who spoke to HuffPost said the Capitol Police didn’t have a satisfactory answer about that concern.

    This member mentioned how the briefing had underscored the wisdom of Twitter suspending Trump’s account, as well as tens of thousands of accounts associated with the right-wing conspiracy theory QAnon, and said the decision to cut off the social media platform Parler “looked a lot smarter” given the efforts to recruit armed extremists to come to the nation’s capital in the coming days.

    “It’s a decision that might ultimately save lives,” this member said.

    We'll wait and see; It may be the same after effect; the Trump party is busy on an "self termination course" the more they act this way, then may be people here start to think for a change, I hope.

    But, since I wrote about "cause and effect" then we all should know the "cause" by now.

    These far right wing groups have wanting to do this for decades, and Trump gave them the ultimate permission and the ultimate target. Its akin to doomsday preppers, they want a nuclear war so they can use their bomb shelter and have bragging rights that they were right about the end of world.

    These groups that stormed the capitol did exactly wanted to do, and really no more than that. If you think about it, they were just protesting because for them "Protesting" is storming a federal building, being destructive, looting, and harming anyone that was inside. That is how they protest. What they didn't do is develop a serious plan that used bombs, automatic weapons, etc, etc, and proceed to totally destroy the capitol along with everybody there.... To be clear, I am not defending them, I am just pointing out that they are soooo far to the right that what they consider protesting is attacking, destroying and harming. From their perspective Peacefully protesting is for pussies, fags, and wimps, real Americans dominate and destroy.

    Well, I hope government officials keep their travel plans a secret, and am hoping we don't have any insiders giving sensitive information to outside groups. I think government officials should conceal carry, for self protection.
