Biden Inauguration Practice Rescheduled After Terror Threat

This will be an inauguration like no other, and a moment that we will not soon forget here in the United States. 

Our nation’s capital, (and Capitol), look like a third-world country at the moment.  The streets are empty of tourists, replaced instead with tens of thousands of National Guard troops and local law enforcement.  Enormous, unscalable fences have been erected around sensitive sites, and the travel industry is disrupting their normal business to restrict access to the DC area.

It’s a fortress, for all intents and purposes, but even the modern ramparts and seas of soldiers weren’t enough to keep rehearsal of the Biden inaugural on-schedule.

A rehearsal for Joe Biden’s inauguration scheduled for Sunday has been postponed because of security concerns, according to two people with knowledge of the decision.

After last week’s riots in Washington, security officials have locked down the Capitol complex, and the National Guard is expected to deploy more than 20,000 troops to assist with security. Top lawmakers and Homeland Security officials have been alarmed about the rising threats around the inauguration, and the FBI warned this weekend of armed protests in all 50 states.
