I understand that the USSS is in charge of security for the Inauguration.

But do they have authorization to call upon Nat. Guard or the military?

Honestly if the Trumpsters assemble a huge crowd in the hundreds of thousands, any security could be easily overwhelmed, especially if there is some "inside" assistance like we saw with the Capitol Police. (Which calls to mind the need to purge the USSS of any Trumpsters before Inauguration, so that they don't spill the beans about any preparations.)

This will be Trump's last stand, and he's not going to call out reinforcements....and he's got his army pumped up for "revolution." It's likely why he has said he will not attend the inauguration, expecting another riot....

I still say that the Inauguration should be relocated indoors to some secure location and live-streamed to the nation. Let the rioters and seditionists wander around the streets with no place to go....

3. they would not be overwhelmed. they would start shooting

with no hesitation. hundreds of armed secret services would not let rioters overwhelm them. There would be many casualties.

8. I applaud Biden for going ahead, but OK with not. Insurrectionists will try to disrupt anyway


Loud noises, maybe some diversionary explosions, starting brawls, etc.

9. I am afraid even the USSS could be compromised. He has fired people

in every agency of the federal government and replaced them with his lackeys. He has actually created the
Deep State nobody can be trusted. There again he telegraphed his intentions. He blamed everything on the Deep
State then he created one.

10. I wish left leaning billionaires would rent all of the DC area hotel rooms.

At least for the two nights leading up to the inaugurations. Chump change for them and help the local hotels. This would knock the crowd sizes down dramatically and make them manageable.

11. I imagine this inauguration will be conspicuously security heavy. I'm not worried.
