It’s January 3rd

So my wife, the Fed, was just informed by her office that she should stay away from the DC area tomorrow, the legendary January 4, because of theoretical threats facing the walled and armed encampment of the Capital Mall.

Of course, here in Redneck-ville I still have zero idea of where the “f” they come up with this shit. It’s not like Richmond and 25,000 of us openly planning to show up and discuss 2nd amendment rights with our legislature and clean up behind us before we leave. Hell, I still can’t figure out what Qanon even means.

But there it is.

So for all y’all out in flyover land, continue to plan on not going near DC tomorrow.

This has been a public service announcement.

Oh, I see. It’s March 3rd isn’t it?

Thought you could trick me didn’t you?

Seriously. Tomorrow is the date of the inauguration as it used to be last century or something stupid like that. So DC is hunkered down with 8 or 9 thousand National Guard troops behind a big old wall to stay safe from the “others” that are ready to finish the job started on January 6th by storming the Capital and having Trump installed as President. It seems to involve a lot of the so far mythical Qanon people that seem to exist somewhere not related to this plane of reality.

Never mind that pretty much everything about the January 6th hyperbole has been debunked. Dammit, this time they mean war!

It’s all over the news.

Seriously.

Looks like they’re suddenly deciding that the Qanon vapor buddies didn’t show up after all. Now the wide spread conspiracy theory is that, according to the internet (that bastion of truth and information and stuff) March 4th was a “false flag” and it’s now been moved to March 20th. Crafty bastards these Qanon people are.

Incidentally, March 20th is my wedding anniversary. Guess I won’t be going to DC to celebrate.

Damn.

Happy Anniversary!

Thank you very much, sir. I’ve been lucky to have circled the sun enough to have reached the land of big numbers. And March has always been the busiest celebration month. I’ll be buying at least a couple large dinners this month.

Onward and upward!

I finally got wind of this. If I understand it right, The Usual Suspects got themselves all wrapped around the axle over the possibility of an armed insurrection that didn’t happen?

on March 5, 2021

Correct, sir. March 4 is the original inauguration day so after January 6, they’ve fenced off Capital Hill and brought in something like 25,000 armed National Guard troops to man the barricades for the Biden inauguration, which turned into an incompetent yawner without a single incident.

Then some of the Governors that had loaned troops got miffed and pulled their troops reducing the number to something like 8-9000. Still more than something like the middle east combined.

So after the impeachment failed miserably and Trump didn’t order the militias to stand down, it became “just wait until March 4th, that’s when Qanon internet chatter says they’ll be coming out of the hills out where I live to overthrow the Gummit, damn it!”

So they threw a party yesterday and made a big deal of shutting down the House (except for one useless usual suspect who showed how courageous he is by sitting on the Capital steps all day waiting for the white supremacist onslaught) because they’re all skeered of the revenge of the rubes.

Then literally nothing happened. It’s Capital Hill. Nobody ever needs to go there for anything and since the surrounding city has been shut down by COVID for a year, there’s nobody there on a good day.

Caught a little news report last night where a camera crew walked around the fence saying hi to the poor schmucks who have to be there. A block or two away there’s a new homeless tent encampment that the city has outfitted with porta johns. There were more news crews there than real people.

So now the “intelligence” (FBI and shit) says that March 4 was a “false flag” event and the “real” date is now March 20. Again, based on the mysterious Qanon guy.

And this General Honorae (sp?) lunatic that Pelosi hired to do a security review of the Capital has recommended that the troops be permanently stationed there. For, like, forever.

This is one of the perks of living where I live. A literally infinite source of entertainment.

Just remember, it’s the 4chan / Q types that are paranoid.

He already did the heavy lifting on writing the current situation up. JMO.

Greenwald is a stone killer.

I’m old enough…barely…to remember when that’s how all liberals sounded. Nixon/Vietnam/CIA/FBI…all distrusted. My mom and her hippie friends from that era wouldn’t understand how 2021 “liberals”, having read that article, are calling Greenwald a “Fascist”.

Feels like a good place to mention “The Iron Law of Woke Projection”, a phrase I just picked up from James Lindsey.

For sure. I need to run off and google the new iron law. I have found Pournelle’s “iron law” to be both iron and law, in actual application, myself.
