Excellent suggestion!

Since USG owns the Old Post Office (they're leasing it to someone, I forget who), and since there's an urgent need to quarter the National Guard protecting against Trump's terrorists, I say we let them sleep there.
And now for a less amusing tweet...
In the category of shocking but not surprising: CNN’s @jamiegangel reports that the WH is putting huge pressure on members, and that members are saying "they want to vote to impeach but they legitimately fear for their lives and their families’ lives."
We're going to find out, I think, that Trump owed much of his support to intimidation. His crew loves The Godfather -- especially the scene with the horse's head.

The Trump International in DC has 263 rooms and occupancy is about 50%. So if we assume that 125 rooms are empty with 2 beds, then 250 NG Troops can sleep there. But the landlord's right to get use of these rooms free-of-charge is unlikely. Average rent is $450/night so that works out to $31.250 every day put into the pockets of the Trump family. Times 10 days makes $313K.

QAnon Woke Up The Real Deep State, by Nicholas Grossman

(Stupid QAnon…)

Link to article

I quote:

To the QAnon community, and others involved in storming the Capitol:

The Deep State is real, but it’s not what you think. The Deep State you worry about is mostly made up; a fiction, a lie, a product of active imaginations, grifter manipulations, and the internet. I’m telling you this now because storming the Capitol building has drawn the attention of the real Deep State — the national security bureaucracy — and it’s important you understand what that means.

You attacked America. Maybe you think it was justified — as a response to a stolen election, or a cabal of child-trafficking pedophiles, or whatever — but it was still a violent attack on the United States. No matter how you describe it, that’s how the real Deep State is going to treat it.

The impact of that will make everything else feel like a LARP.

End quote.

TL;DR: If you are one of the terrorists or their sympathizers:

Run. Very Fast. Right Now.

The ultra-rich don't care about ideology (unless they're Zionists, of course). They only care about wealth, power, safety for themselves and tight control of the unruly masses. Whether it's the righties or the lefties that start to "run riot" on their own, as opposed to being used as pawns in the ultra-rich folks' social-control games, those uppity non-elites will eventually be put down, with an iron fist if necessary. It has always been thus.

The Far Right did not nearly murder Congressmen and Senators before.

Attack dogs who turn on their masters get sent to the pound--or put to sleep.
