RELATED COMMENTARY by Pamela Geller | The Geller Report : The election was stolen — they know it.
A worker in DC filmed the military presence in the city early in the morning. He asks why would someone need to put up such barriers if he legitimately won the election?
At the end of this video the worker shares:
This is what our intersections look like now. If you need all this to protect your inauguration from the people, maybe the f***ing people didn’t f***ing elect you!”
Biden Inaugural Like Baghdad: Green Zone, Red Zone, Military Checkpoints to Enter and Leave Downtown D.C., Bridges Into City to Be Closed
By Kristinn Taylor |
In the days leading up to the Biden inaugural, the nation’s capital has been turned into an occupied military zone like Baghdad. Armed troops authorized to use lethal force are manning checkpoints to enter and leave downtown Washington, D.C. Green Zone and and Red Zone perimeters have been established. Several bridges into the city from neighboring Virginia are scheduled to be closed next week for the inaugural.
Sean Spicer, President Trump’s first press secretary and current Newsmax TV host, posted video apparently taken Friday night that shows a military checkpoint to leave D.C. near the Lincoln Memorial. The video also shows cars on 16th Street near K Street parked in rows blockading the roadway. But first, a scene-setter report by Spicer’s Newsmax co-host Lyndsay Keith from 16th and K in the daytime.
Washington D.C. remains locked down with barricades and thousands of National Guard troops.

Another report on checkpoints to leave D.C., “A friend
just called me from his car in DC, he was dropping his wife off at her office
in NW. They had to go through an Armed Checkpoint to enter the city! Leaving
the city, he had to stop at another Armed Checkpoint.
He was required to show his ID. #UnlikeAnElection”

Report by a construction early Friday morning:
Four of the main bridges in and out of D.C. from Virginia will be closed for 48 hours around the inauguration. Two bridges from Virginia to D.C. are not set to be closed: Key Bridge from Rosslyn to Georgetown and Chain Bridge from McLean to Canal Rd. near the Palisades neighborhood.
The Secret Service posted a detailed list on Thursday of the streets blockaded by military checkpoints and divided into a Green Zone and Red Zone.
“Green Zone – Vehicle Restricted Zone Vehicle traffic restricted to residents or businesses within the restricted area and National Guard Personnel will be assisting with verifying traffic entering into the Green Zone.”
“Red Zone – Street Closures Vehicle traffic restricted to authorized vehicles only with proper vehicle placard.”
Extra checks are in place for those flying to D.C., “Extra security for flights coming into DC: I boarded a flight from LGA to DC a moment ago. At the gate, a TSA agent checked (again) all passenger IDs against boarding passes. Homeland Security officer w/ a dog was standing beside the door and said, Yes, this is for inauguration.”
Also, airlines are banning guns in checked luggage on flights to D.C. area airports.
These restrictions and security checkpoints are supposed to be temporary–just for the inauguration.
