But does it really matter?

Extremely embarrassing to spend months mocking antifa and licking cop boot, only to go out there and get absolutely rinsed by cops who were barely even trying. Weak stuff. Those teenage commies managed to take on and beat whole armies of cops(and proud boys) and they’re all skinny wimp soyboy betas, but we got scrubbed like it was nothing. And all for the sake of some rich orange pedophile who doesn’t give a shit about any of us? Sad.

I genuinely hope this is real, one of them realizing how spineless and soft they are compared to Black Lives Matter and others. And they are, having run away after a can of single pepper spray.
If those clowns have any ideas about trying again during the inauguration, they can forget it. DC’s mayor plans to have the city ready in two weeks’ time – armed cops and national guard at the ready.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has issued a public emergency order that will last until January 21 at 3 p.m.
That’s the day after President-elect Joe Biden is scheduled to be sworn into office.
Today, First Amendment protests turned violent,” the order reads. “Many persons came to the District armed and for the purpose of engaging in violence and destruction and have engaged in violence and destruction. They have fired chemical irritants, bricks, bottles, and guns. They have breached the security of the Capitol and their destructive and riotous behavior has the potential to spread beyond the Capitol. Their motivation is ongoing. Today, they sought to disrupt the Congressional proceedings relating to the acceptance of electoral college votes. President Trump continues to fan rage and violence by contending that the Presidential election was invalid. Persons are dissatisfied with judicial rulings and the findings of State Boards of Elections, and some persons can be expected to continue their violent protests through the inauguration.
You can read the full order HERE. Basically, it gives city officials the power to “implement such measures as may be necessary or appropriate to protect persons and property in the District of Columbia from the conditions caused by this public emergency,” including issuing a curfew, reducing or altering the hours of businesses and request assistance from the federal government.
Bowser did institute a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew for Wednesday into Thursday, after a mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol building.
Others have beaten me to it, reporting verification of how the white supremacist’s house and pentagon intentionaly detoothed and disarmed the DC cops and security. Business Insider has more on that, seen below.
Although the terrorists have talked about going back a second time with guns in hand, that’s not likely to happen or work. Surprise attacks only work once. But I would suggest turning DC and Maryland into “no fly” zones, and Harris not attend the inauguration. Have her sworn in at a remote location, just in case. Tell everyone she caught COVID-19.
The Pentagon placed major restrictions on the DC National Guard leading up to Wednesday’s insurrection, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
Officials curtailed the ability of DC guardsmen to deploy troops, receive ammo and riot gear, engage with protesters, share equipment with local police, and use surveillance without explicit approval from President Trump’s acting defense secretary, Christopher Miller, according to The Post.
Guardsmen didn’t arrive to support US Capitol Police — who were ill-prepared and quickly overrun — until more than two hours after its chief called for them, according to the Post.
The muted approach was said to be intended to avoid backlash that followed an aggressive response to Black Lives Matter protests over the summer, but the response has drawn sharp criticism from Democratic lawmakers, activists, and even some law-enforcement experts for being insufficient.
