US Prepares for One of the Most Unusual Inaugurations in History

President-elect Joe Biden is set to be sworn in on Jan. 20 amid unparalleled security measures and the pandemic lockdown, making it one of the most untraditional inaugurations in U.S. history.

Like many predecessors, Biden is going to be sworn in on the steps of the Capitol building. But the traditional parade down Pennsylvania Avenue, which normally draws hundreds of thousands of Americans, has been canceled, to be replaced by a virtual parade. Inaugural balls have been canceled as well.

The viewing stand near the White House has been dismantled, making this event likely the smallest inauguration in history, in terms of physical attendance. While a low turnout is expected, the event will be unusually tight in security and law enforcement.

Optics & Timing Are Extremely Important, Insurgency Is Real The News Is Fake

The [CB]/[DS] economic plan failed before it began. The plan they are pushing is the same old garbage, it’s about destroying jobs while making it look like people are making more money, this will make more people dependent on the government. Trump has done the complete opposite and he is showing the people. The direction is clear. The [DS]/[MSM] are now trapped in the largest sting operation. Everything that is being implemented is not for their protection. Optics are very important. Trump will act like he is not involved in the operation. While the events happen Trump will be flying on AF1. The [MSM] will be none the wiser because this is tradition. The insurgency is real, the news is fake. It’s time to take back the country.

THE AMERICAN FRINGES GO MAINSTREAM

America is an occupied territory. The invaders aren’t foreign but rather an enemy from within: Americans fighting to push extreme ideologies into the mainstream. This resulting chaos is reflected in divisive rhetoric and burning cities, in militarized citizenry and dictatorial echo chambers. These are the American Fringes. The roots go back decades, but the past few months are instructive.

Amid a pandemic that has ravaged lives and decimated the economy while also fueling conspiracy theories, Black Lives Matter protests broke out following a series of police killings — and garnered large bipartisan support for a racial reckoning in America. But the fringes have come to dominate both the street theater and discussions around the issues, with meaningful consequences. Over the next two days (see part two here), we will explore how the fringes are threatening to become the America of tomorrow … if we don’t confront them today.
