Police have apparently found a new pretext to keep a militarized security shield around the US Capitol, warning that pro-Trump militias are plotting to bomb Congress during President Joe Biden’s upcoming State of the Union speech?
Such an attack would carry out unfinished business that the election-fraud protesters who rioted in Washington last month intended to achieve when they stormed the Capitol.
We believe that the insurrectionists that attacked the Capitol weren’t only interested in attacking members of Congress. They wanted to send a symbolic message to the nation as to who was in charge of that legislative process.
Razor-wire-topped fencing around the Capitol was erected the day after the January 6 riot, and more than 25,000 National Guard troops were summoned to Washington from across the USA to help seal off the government district for Biden’s January 20 illegal inauguration.
Federal authorities decided to keep 5,600 troops in Washington until mid-March, when they estimated that former President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial would end.
But the violent protests that were predicted for Inauguration Day didn’t occur, and Trump’s impeachment trial ended without incident on February 13, about a month earlier than was expected at the time the troop deployments were set.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed last week that Biden won’t give such a speech in February. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) has said that Congress won’t hold a joint session for Biden’s speech until after Covid-19 aid legislation is passed.
Given Republican opposition to the $1.9 trillion bill proposed by Democrats, it’s not clear whether Pelosi will achieve her goal of having a bill ready for Biden to sign before March 14, 2021.
