Wow #2. The FBI is screening National Guard troops over worries of an INSIDER attack?

 via Stars & Stripes

U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event.

The massive undertaking reflects the extraordinary security concerns that have gripped Washington following the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. And it underscores fears that some of the very people assigned to protect the city over the next several days could present a threat to the incoming president and other VIPs in attendance.

Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy told The Associated Press on Sunday that officials are conscious of the potential threat, and he warned commanders to be on the lookout for any problems within their ranks as the inauguration approaches. So far, however, he and other leaders say they have seen no evidence of any threats, and officials said the vetting hadn't flagged any issues.


If they're this concerned then maybe they shouldn't even have the detail!  If we've actually sunk to this level then we're worse off than even I thought.


God save the United States Of America. 

Question.  How did the election of one moron (party immaterial) become a threat to the Republic of this magnitude?  I wasn't happy with Clinton but I grinned and dealt with it.  Turned out not so bad.  Some were pissed beyond belief with Obama.  They did the same, with same results.  How did we get to this????
