10:35 a.m.

Two U.S. Army National Guard members are being removed from the security mission to secure Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration. A U.S. Army official and a senior U.S. intelligence official say the two National Guard members have been found to have ties to fringe right group militias.

No plot against Biden was found.

The Army official and the intelligence official spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity due to Defense Department media regulations. They did not say what fringe group the Guard members belonged to or what unit they served in.

Contacted by the AP on Tuesday, the National Guard Bureau referred questions to the U.S. Secret Service and said, “Due to operational security, we do not discuss the process nor the outcome of the vetting process for military members supporting the inauguration.”

The Secret Service told the AP on Monday it would not comment on if any National Guard members had been pulled from securing the inauguration for operational security reasons.

But what about ANTIFA? Why don’t they remove antifa members also.

Anyhoo... the inauguration should be safe now?

Or do you think something will happen? Are there more militia members that they haven’t found yet?

So, Secret Service has removed 12 people from the National Guard now. The reason is that they have written inappropriate things online.

Looks like the purge has begun now?

I wonder if the regulations say, "don't share operational information with the press" or if they say, "share whatever you want willy nilly, just be sure to do it anonymously."

[habebe ]: "set.to be the least watched inauguration in modern history..."

Speaking of which, the Biden team concocted a clever propaganda strategy!

Given the Trump inauguration coverage, leading into tomorrow, DNC media found themselves in yet another situation where their partisan double standards and hypocrisies would expose themselves. They had two main options:
• Option 1 -> Try to get a huge real-life crowd to beat Trump's numbers.
Hypocrisy of Option 2 -> People have been calling out DNC media for excusing BLM riots and even claiming that BLM riots *reduced* the spread of COVID (e.g., "Black Lives Matter protests may have slowed overall spread of coronavirus in Denver and other cities, new study finds"; The Colorado Sun; June 30th, 2020; http://col...e-protests-coronavirus-spread/ ). If the DNC put together a huge group for the inauguration, this hypocrisy would reach new heights, with the DNC admitting that they knew all along that crowds could be together safely under controlled circumstances and that their COVID policies were not rational.
• Option 2 -> Say that small crowd sizes at the Biden inauguration were unfair to compare to real life crowd sizes of the past because so many people had chosen to watch online.
Hypocrisy of Option 2 -> Trump made this same claim in 2016, and DNC media mocked it, dismissed it, and added it to a list of claimed lies and misstatements. If they were to make the same claim in 2021, their hypocrisy would be on full display.

But, they found an alternate option:
• Pretend that people attended "symbolically" by placing about 200,000 little flags on the National Mall ( http://people.com/politics/what-to-know-about-the-flags-at-joe-bidens-inauguration/ )

Perfect! Now they only need 400,000 more attendees to exceed upper estimates of Trump's 600,000-person crowd. And it just so happens...

Last night (Tuesday, January 19), inauguration festivities included a Reflecting Pool memorial for the now 400,000 Americans who have died of COVID. Jill and Joe Biden stood behind bullet-proof glass while Harris and Emhoff stood off to the side ( http://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2021/01/19/958449203/400-lights-for-400-000-dead-to-illuminate-lincoln-memorial-reflecting-pool ). Very moving! The prole memes have been congratulating the dignified presidential action already (e.g., http://imgur.com/gallery/JElhaDq ). CNN even posted the headline "At last, a nation mourns" ( http://imgur.com/gallery/Zijrht2 ), before they realized that there had actually been several COVID milestone ceremonies before this and that CNN was maybe being too obvious about their distorted version of reality wherein things like mourning can only take place without Trump (thus, CNN changed the article headline to, "Joe Biden grieves Covid victims on eve of his inauguration: 'To heal, we must remember'" http://www.cnn.com/2021/01/19/politics/biden-covid-victims-memorial/index.html ).

But, as part of a well-timed inauguration event, it fits the narrative propagated by DNC media and reflected in the l0w-level meme discourse: that every U.S. COVID death was due to Trump. This is, of course, irrational, since anyone can see that the U.S. is not the only country losing scores of people to COVID, but the memes do not really ask for a percentage of responsibility. Luckily, for m3dium-level discourse followers, an article from August has been circulating to cast a more numeric blame ("Nationwide Mask Mandate in April Would Likely Have Saved Nearly 40,000 American Lives, Study Finds" http://www.newsweek.com/nationwide-mask-mandate-april-would-likely-have-saved-nearly-40000-american-lives-study-finds-1523039 ). The article made the front page of Reddit, but the headline cast the information as a total percentage that could have been saved.

So, in the propaganda message, on the even of his inauguration, Biden symbolically mourns for the Americans that Trump has killed with COVID, and we equally see that all of these people surely would have been alive and present at Biden's inauguration in great numbers had Trump not killed them. :'(

In that line, we see Biden standing over the graves of the dead, having them speak for Biden’s message — the dead and voiceless used as his political props. All of these people attending his inauguration when many likely would not have made such a decision. Alas, it is simply not possible to delay such a photo op for times not directly related to the inauguration (those 400,000 could not wait!), so it must be an acceptable misgiving that DNC vanity has been surgically attached to the mere appearance of reverence in the same vein as social media manipulators taking selfie videos while giving food to the exploited poor. :'(

This further cements the DNC media strategy: DNC figures had their fair share of blame in creating many of these dead in order to diminish Trump's successes in the election. Many admitted to this strategy through the denial of relief measures and the science-denying measures that were employed to stop businesses from opening. They wanted economic ruin and death for a win, and on these graves they can say, "Thank you," and shed a tear: "I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have [watched them die to secure this presidency]."

It's funny that people don't think they exist as an organization. There has been significant coverage from Portland journalists in particular about how Antifa has been practicing their mob tactics for years — even before Trump. They even have nodes on Twitter, so it's not exactly a secret.

..
[hood]: "Option 3: who gives a shit how many people attended the inauguration?"

I certainly don't, but DNC media was super interested. Trump's inauguration was a major launching point for their misinformation campaigns. They started by under-reporting his crowd size, which caused Trump's vanity to use available statistics to put Sean Spicer in front of the press core with more accurate numbers; but then DNC media did additional research, coming up with still more accurate/complete numbers, which caused Kellyanne Conway's "alternative facts" explanation, which, in context, meant that the White House research did not have the metro ridership data that had been researched after their statements, but DNC misinformation campaigns gladly misinterpreted the statement to start off the Trump presidency with a commitment to willful misinterpretation and misinformation. It is only fitting that they would apply similar propaganda to the Biden presidency, because why would the corrupt waste that power?

Its just a blanket term for a large number of smaller associations. Antifa is as much an organization as "alt right"

Trump and you care about attendance numbers.

That is not true. The Trump campaign started their misinformation campaign by saying that there was hundreds of thousands of people, even millions of people at Trump's inauguration. When everyone else pointed out that there wasn't that many, they said "it was more than at Obama's inauguration!!!" ... People then pointed out that that wasn't true either, by comparing actual photos. For the Trump campaign it was very important how many people watched Trump. No one else really cared if there was 1,000 or 10,000. Just don't lie about it. The lies was what got people riled up against Trump. And then it only got worse when that Kellyanne Conway woman explained that what they had was "alternative facts".

Or, that Trump before the event touted how his inauguration will be the the biggest ever attended or witnessed. Because his ego is all he has due to his small hands. Thus, making it a focal point for media to observe and report it and seeing that it wasn't all that it was built up to be by Trump and his fan club, causing him to have toddler rage and send out little old spice in his first press briefing to again make that a point of contention.

Hey, let's be careful with the whole "alternative facts", because, we don't want to invoke that terminology again so you can find some dumb excuse to justify it's usage due to your unbelievable devotion to trump.

Not my fault that refuting your points can be done in meme format.

Antifa is as much a national or global conspiracy as Altright. Both are just blanket terms we use to describe a large number of formal and informal associations.

Its just a blanket term we use to cover all kinds of stuff we imagine stand in opposition to Altright

Which in turn is a blanket term we use to cover all kinds of stuff we imagine stand in opposition to Antifa.

The question you asked is better addressed to those that believe Antifa, or the Altright are organizations.

CT nuttery in other words. We might as well talk about the Illuminati and The Elders of Zion as organizations.

If Antifa are planning to go out and beat nazis and fascists, they don’t advertise it beforehand.

Antifa are usually not welcome to particapte in ordinary left-wing or socialist protests/demonstrations, because Antifa-members usually use violence and starts riots.

Antifa is just a small group of people who don’t organize demonstrations or take part in demonstrations.

Instead, they show up at other people’s demonstrations if they believe that there are going to be fascist and nazi counter demonstrators there.

Or they show up at nazi and fascist demonstrations to counter them.
