I trust this threat has been anticipated and will be neutralized.

    Anarchists Are Hoping To Turn Donald Trump’s Inauguration On January 20th Into One Of The Biggest Riots In U.S. History By Michael Snyder January 10, 2017 http://www.infowars.com/anarchists-are-hoping-to-turn-donald-trumps-inauguration-on-january-20th-into-one-of-the-biggest-riots-in-u-s-history/ Radical leftists are planning to make January 20th the most chaotic Inauguration Day in American history.   Their stated goal is to “disrupt” the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of “actions” to achieve that stated  goal.  Some of the more moderate groups are using terms such as “civil resistance” and “civil disobedience”, but others are openly talking about “blockades”, jumping barricades, throwing projectiles and “citywide paralysis”.   It is important to understand that these groups are well funded, highly organized and extremely motivated.  The election of Donald Trump has been perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and they are working very hard to turn January 20th into a major political statement. Thousands of activists, journalists, scientists, entertainers, and other prominent voices took out a full-page call to action in the New York Times  (see below) making clear their rejection of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence with the simple message: “No!”  Donald  Trump, the President-elect, has assembled a regime  of grave danger. Millions of people in the U.S. and around  the world are filled  with deep anxiety, fear, and disgust. Our anguish is right and just.  Our anger  must  now become massive resistance—before Donald  Trump  is inaugurated and has the full reins of power  in his hands. 
  Should we fail to rise with determination and daring  in our millions  now to stop this, the consequences for humanity will be disastrous. We, the under-signed, know in the depths of our beings, the catastrophe that will befall the people of the world should the Trump/Pence regime  assume full power. We therefore call for a month of resistance that reaches a crescendo by the January 20th 2017 Inauguration. Because we refuse to accept a fascist America, millions  must  rise up in a resistance with a deep determination such that we create  a political crisis that prevents the Trump/Pence fascist regime  from consolidating its hold on the governance of society. The Presidency of Donald Trump is illegitimate. 
  Donald  Trump did not win the popular vote. Not even close, he lost by nearly 3 million  votes. He won the Electoral College—an institution set up in 1787 to protect slavery. More fundamentally, it is the fascist character of the  Trump/Pence regime  and what they are planning to do which renders it illegitimate and an immoral peril to the future of humanity and the earth itself. By any definition, Donald Trump is a fascist. He has put together a regime who will carry out this program, and worse. Fascism is a strong word. It is a very serious thing.  It has direction and momentum that must  be stopped before it becomes too late.  Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic  nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive “traditional values.”  
  Fascism feeds on and encourages the threat and use of violence to build a movement and come to power.  Fascism, once in power, essentially eliminates tradition- al democratic rights. No election, whether fair or fraudulent, should legitimize this. “Reaching across the aisle” only legitimizes that which is illegitimate.      If you work with fascists you normalize the road to horror. You cannot try to “wait things out.” Those who lived through Nazi Germany and sat on the sidelines, looking on as Hitler demonized, criminalized, and eventually rounded  up one group  after another, became  shameful collaborators with monstrous crimes. Don’t Conciliate...Don’t Accommodate...Don’t Collaborate! The Trump Regime Must and Can Be Stopped Before It Starts! This is not wishful thinking but  could be made a reality if all who hate what is represented by this fascist regime  translate our outrage into massive mobilization to create  the political conditions which make this possible.  
  We are millions. 
  Our only recourse now is to act together outside normal channels. Every faction within the established power structure must be forced to respond to what we do—creating a situation where the Trump/Pence regime is prevented from ruling. We call on each and every one who opposes what  this regime stands for, and what it will do, to take part in and actively build, this resistance and refusal. 
  Organize. Plan. Act. 
  The Month of Resistance must grow to millions—becoming protests that don’t stop—where people refuse to leave, occupying  public space, and more and more people stand  up with conviction and courage demanding:  
  NO!  We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!

  If you go to refusefascism.org, you will discover that the protests that they are organizing in Washington D.C. will begin on January 14th. They say that they want to “stop the Trump-Pence regime before it starts”, and they hope to have protests going “every day and every night” without interruption through at least January 20th. Another group that plans to kick things off on January 14th is DisruptJ20.  Of course that is short for “Disrupt January 20th”.  If you go to their official website, you will find a long slate of events that have already been scheduled. According to Legba Carrefour, a spokesperson for DisruptJ20, one of the goals of the group is to block major transportation routes into and throughout our nation’s capital.  And he is not shy about the fact that they literally want to “shut down the Inauguration”… “We are planning to shut down the inauguration, that’s the short of it,” he says.  “We’re pretty literal about that, we are trying to create citywide paralysis on a level that I don’t think has been seen in D.C. before.  We’re trying to shut down pretty much every ingress into the city as well as every checkpoint around the actual inauguration parade route.” If Carrefour and his fellow conspirators are able to actually accomplish that, it truly would be unprecedented. And while DisruptJ20 is not publicly advocating violence, they are not exactly discouraging it either… Carrefour says DisruptJ20 has not publicly announced plans to jump barricades along the inauguration parade route or throw projectiles at the new president, but that autonomous direct  actions are encouraged. “I can’t comment on specific stuff we’re doing like that, mostly because that would be illegal. But, yeah, it will get pretty crazy, I expect,” he says. “‘Have fun!’ I say.” After the rioting that we have seen in Baltimore, Ferguson, Charlotte and many other communities around the nation in recent years, I hope that authorities are taking these threats quite seriously. Once Donald Trump won the election, many conservatives seemed to think that the war was won.  But the truth of the matter is that many on the left were completely blindsided by Trump’s surprise victory, and now that they are fully awake they are gearing up for battle like never before. And these protests are not going to end on January 20th.  In fact, abortion advocates are hoping to get close to a million women into Washington D.C. on the day following the Inauguration to protest for abortion rights.  Filmmaker Michael Moore is hoping that this march will be the beginning of “100 days of resistance” against Trump’s presidency…Filmmaker and liberal icon Michael Moore has announced his plans to attend the Women’s March on Washington to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration later this month and has called for sore loser liberals to go further — by staging protests acts of resistance through the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency. In an appearance, this weekend on MSNBC’s The Last Word, the 62-year-old Trumpland and Fahrenheit 9/11 director made a “call to arms” to those opposed to Trump’s presidency to join the Women’s March on Washington scheduled for January 21, the day after the presidential inauguration. It’s important that everybody go there,” Moore told MSNBC’s Ari Melber. Of course it is easy to imagine how all of this could spiral wildly out of control.  If Trump cracks down on these protests really hard in an attempt to restore law and order, that could end up sparking a dramatic backlash against his “police state tactics”.  And if the protests become even bigger and more violent, Trump could respond by cracking down even more harshly. Let us hope for some really cold weather in D.C. at the end of January so that as many troublemakers as possible get discouraged and stay home.  Violent protests, blockades and riots aren’t going to solve anything, and they could easily open fresh wounds in a nation that is becoming more divided with each passing day.
