The inauguration of a President is something to be celebrated, not feared. But because of the hatred of Donald Trump by so many angry leftists in this country, the Secret Service is having to take unprecedented steps on Inauguration Day!
The worst part is, the danger isn’t going to come from groups like ISIS or other terror groups. No, the Secret Service and other security experts believe domestic leftist and anarchist groups will be the most dangerous.
Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy said, “I think people today are willing to do things they may not have been willing to do in the past.”
Added Paul Abbate, the FBI’s executive assistant director for the Criminal, Cyber, Response and Services Branch, “We know that this (Washington region) is a high-profile [terror] target.”
Security expert Mike Maness of Trapwire, said, “The bigger threat is probably coming from anti-government/anarchist groups who are likely to try and disrupt the inauguration, and may engage in violence to do so.”
SCARY. There’s more:
Soft perimeters will permit access to only those vehicles belonging to people who live or work in the area. Hard vehicle perimeters will be off limits to all but official vehicles.
This year in particular, Jeh Johnson said, “The hard vehicle perimeter will be heavily fortified by trucks, dumpsters, buses and the like, given the current threat environment.”
That environment he spoke of is created by terror groups’ constant online prodding of sympathizers to conduct not just spectacular attacks like those in Paris, Brussels, Turkey, Germany and Orlando in the past year, but single-casualty attacks as well.
Another key part of Secret Service attack prevention planning started months ago, and is designed to cover large and small incidents.
If you’re going to be there, remember…..report suspicious activity. Too many times bad things happen because people are afraid to speak up. Do it and let’s help to make sure this inauguration goes off without a hitch!
Tell others about this. If you know people who will be there, let them know of the crazy (but necessary) security measures that will be taken. It’s tough but it’s great. The Secret Service are pros and they won’t allow a bunch of leftists prevent Trump from beginning to make America great again!
