Axios Alerts us that…

D.C. lockdown for inauguration to start Wednesday

In an escalation of inauguration security following the Capitol riot, federal authorities plan to lock down a massive swath of downtown Washington on Wednesday, six days earlier than originally planned.

Why it matters: The earlier shutdown is based on warnings about pre-inauguration demonstrations planned for this weekend in capitals throughout the country, as well as tighter security after the Capitol siege.

Axios has already started softening the language, downgrading the insurrection to merely “riots.”

In cause you’re wondering about the Washington Monument, they are closing it to the Public during the inauguration, too. I guess snipers got first dibs?

  1. Axios has already started softening the language, downgrading the insurrection to merely “riots.”

    Bet 400 quatloos in a month or two it’s “a few broken windows during a rowdy and vocal protest” and later “somewhat raucous protests” as the Republican treason is stuffed down the memory hole.

    Well, Trump won’t be there, so he’ll be fine whatever happens.
    Sorry, but I really thought that all the inauguration stuff would be Zoomed and not in person. That had the benefit of Not Being a Target. Also, Pandemic, anyone?

    Some people are worried that drumpf’s announcement that he’s not attending the Inauguration is a signal to his yahoos to raise hell. Going into lockdown on Wednesday is a good start.

      I found it –

      LATimes email thingie:

      “Underscoring the concerns, the National Park Service said it would close the Washington Monument for two weeks, starting Monday, and might close other areas because of potential security threats between now and Jan. 20.”

    He’s been pissed for four years that nobody showed up for his inauguration (despite all the alternative facts). And now he gets to ruin Biden’s inauguration. Winning!

    Governors Northam and Hogan should set up roadblocks and checkpoints to thwart MAGA Marauders.
