QAnon nutballs think Trump will be inaugurated, today

Capitol Police are beefing up security this week at the Capitol as a precaution against potential extremist activity amid a far-right conspiracy theory that ex-President Donald Trump will rise to power on March 4, the original inauguration day for presidents before 1933.

The acting sergeant-at-arms for the House of Representatives, Timothy Blodgett, informed members of Congress on Tuesday of the increased security measures. Wednesday morning, Capitol Police released a statement that the department had “obtained intelligence that shows a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group on Thursday, March 4.”

Yesterday, Wednesday afternoon, the House of Representatives canceled its Thursday session as a precaution…

On the other hand…

“The most prominent and most vocal QAnon promoters are not on board with the March 4 date,” said Travis View, a QAnon researcher and host of the QAnon Anonymous podcast. “Setting up big for big events and flagging that something big is going to happen, and then nothing happens, is a years-long QAnon tradition.”

There is a rumor or two floating through the most serious nutballs…the armed insurrection-types…of another try at an uprising. This is being taken seriously by law enforcement, local and national level coppers.

Me? I’ll absolutely be in front of the TV, this afternoon. I’ll be watching West Bromwich Albion vs Everton [0-1]. My wife will be watching Liverpool vs Chelsea [0-1]. We’re both Scouser supporters.

    “March 4, 1933. “Inauguration of Franklin D. Roosevelt as President and John Nance Garner as Vice President. Podium at U.S. Capitol East Portico, Washington, D.C.” This 37th presidential inauguration, the first of four for FDR, was the last to be held in March before Inauguration Day was moved to January by the 20th Amendment.” https://www.shorpy.com/node/26101
