Extremists Plotting to ‘Blow Up’ the Capitol During State of The Union

Have these last seven weeks just been the calm between the storms?

Other than the occasional headline coming form a courtroom defense diatribe, the right-wing extremists of America have been fairly quiet these past few weeks.

“So based on that information,” she added, “we think that it’s prudent that Capitol Police maintain its enhanced and robust security posture until we address those vulnerabilities going forward.”
