It Doesn’t Pass the Smell Test


Annie Peterson | Civil Patriot

As a young mom I often bought gallons of milk for the kids. We went through a lot of it! As you know, milk has a “purchase by” date, but it can sit in the fridge past that date. Usually. 

I used to do a “sniff test” if I wanted to check the freshness of the milk, (to know if it was safe to use). If it smelled okay, I’ll put it in the kids’ cereal bowls. If it stunk, I’d throw it out. 

Speaking of the Democrats, they’re up to nonsense again. With Biden’s upcoming SOTU (State of the Union) address they’ve decided they need to keep more troops in D.C. 

It’s all about appearances, you see. The longer they keep our politicians surrounded by the military, the longer they can keep the narrative going that they need to. Because, Republicans are dangerous, you see. SO dangerous that the President of the United States (and Democrats, as a whole) aren’t safe unless they’re surrounded. 

Which is weird, considering how much these same people have devalued the police over the past year. But I digress. . .

They’ve blamed most of this “need” on the January 6th “insurrection” of the Capitol. I get that. But, according to an FBI Counterterrorism Official, no firearms were recovered during that breach. 

No firearms. 

That should tell you something. 

So, if the “worst thing ever” didn’t involve firearms, then why the need for so much security now? It makes no sense to me. 

There have been stirrings that a militia group might plan a breach on March 4th. (This information, I believe, is tied to an Internet rumor/conspiracy theory that Trump will return on that date.) So, I do understand that security is being beefed up at the U.S. Capitol. Probably wise. But, how long are we going to see our nation’s capital looking like a military zone? 

House Acting Sergeant at Arms Timothy Blodgett told all members of Congress in a message on Monday that his office and Capitol Police are monitoring information surrounding the date, which he said some have described as the “true Inauguration Day.”

Blodgett, however, appeared to dispute claims that armed groups are plotting to storm the Capitol on March 4, saying officials have “no indication” that groups are planning to travel to Washington D.C. to protest or commit acts of violence. (Epoch Times)

Perhaps, after March 4th, things will calm down in D.C. One can hope. Then, perhaps, we can send those troops to other places where they’re needed—like the border states, for instance.
