Pentagon Says Proud Boys and Oath Keepers in National Guard May Try to Assassinate Biden


BREAKING NEWS: Defense officials fear possible INSIDE attack at Biden’s inauguration and will vet all 25,000 National Guard troops stationed in the Capitol

  • Defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack at the inauguration
  • It has prompted the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops
  • Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy said officials are conscious of potential threat

Daily Mail: 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 January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters.

It also 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.

About 25,000 members of the National Guard are streaming into Washington from across the country – at least two and a half times the number for previous inaugurals. And while the military routinely reviews service members for extremist connections, the FBI screening is in addition to any previous monitoring.

‘The question is, is that all of them? Are there others?’ said McCarthy. ‘We need to be conscious of it and we need to put all of the mechanisms in place to thoroughly vet these men and women who would support any operations like this.’

In a situation like this one, FBI vetting would involve running peoples’ names through databases and watchlists maintained by the bureau to see if anything alarming comes up.

That could include involvement in prior investigations or terrorism-related concerns, said David Gomez, a former FBI national security supervisor in Seattle.

Insider threats have been a persistent law enforcement priority in the years after the September 11, 2001, attacks. But in most cases, the threats are from homegrown insurgents radicalized by al-Qaida, the Islamic State group or similar groups.

In contrast, the threats against Biden´s inauguration have been fueled by supporters of President Donald Trump, far-right militants, white supremacists and other radical groups.

  1. You kow this really kills a Vietnam Veteran,
    Because when we were sent over there the
    “Brass” said we were fighting for Democracy ! What a bunch of crap! We were fighting for Capitalism, the Oligarchs.
    And when we came back home there were all these billionaire oligarchs that owned everything because of the money they made from killing Vietnamese people.
    There is no Republic
    There is no Democracy
    The United States is a colony of Oligarchs.
    Sad but true.

    • …because of the money they made from us killing Vietnamese, Lao and Cambodian people. We got the blame They got the money.

      And you’re correct on all else Sarge!

  2. The almost religious fervor of these Trumpster true-believers fits right in with how many of them are Christian Zionists who see Trump as the fulfillment of their crazy end-times theology. These are folks who already believe the Earth was created exactly 6025 years ago because they’ve counted up the “begats” in the Scofield Reference Bible. It’s only a small step from that to believing that Trump won the election and that it’s up to them to “stop the steal.” They will willingly martyr themselves, all on video, just like the Trumpsters who stormed the Capitol did. There is no way this will end well.

  3. Extremists only in the National Guard? Take a look at your Regular forces Mr. and Ms. Pentagon. Something about pointing out the mote in thy neighbor’s eye while ignoring the beam in thine own isn’t it?

  4. Watch militarized Streets , remembers Ukraine, Libya , Egypt , Afghanistan , Syria, Yemen , Iraq …. a Cocktail of Colorful revolution and civil war and Separation Division , hope these all will help destruction of Empire of Evil Satan Communist Illuminati ! I see the same Actors behind all these wars , the same who were behind WWII , Shifting brave Germans into NAZIS , thus to attack them , the same behind Occupation in Palastina , the same A +s sholes every where and now in un – united state of america

    • You see the same actors behind all these wars, and yet you don’t see that your Trump in his last minute just ordered US Central Command to add Israel to the list of countries for which it has responsibility and added a bunch of Patriot missiles in Eilat to cover the sham called iron dome making it hard for Biden to diffuse the next war.
