Watching concertina wire installed on the "unscalable" fence encircling the Capitol reminds me of a story told about my Great-Grandfather Harold.
It was the 1930s, telephones were new in homes and Harold's neighbor, Hulda, didn't yet have a phone and was constantly using Harold's phone!
So Great-Grandpa got out his hammer, nails and lumber and quietly set to work building a fence.
"Why ya building a fence, Harold?" Hulda asked, flirtatiously. "Why do you need a fence?"
"Well, I'll tell ya, Hulda," responded Grandpa around a mouthful of nails. "It's to keep some chickens in and some chickens out."
Hulda spun on her heel and flounced away in a huff. Problem solved.
That's why I'm grinning so broadly as concrete barriers, fences, concertina wire, the National Guard, FEMA, etc. encircle the Capitol buildings.
The Mainstream Media has spun it as a necessary precaution against those rabidly violent frothing-at-the-mouth MAGA folk who rioted, attacked, looted, beat and murdered at the Save America rally last Wednesday.
Oh wait. That was Antifa last Summer. My bad. Never mind.
Apparently, the Bad People in Government are so bloated with power and/or so incredibly stupid that they don't realize all those security precautions are to keep the chickens, I mean, traitors IN..not the patriots out.
And the bait? Biden's so-called Inauguration Ceremony.
Oh, Patriots, this is getting good!
If you listen very closely, you'll hear President Trump's voice shaking with emotion in this video.
Can you feel it? Fatigue. While many patriots are still gun-ho, many are plumb bone weary. After the surge of enthusiastic patriotism on Election Day followed by the gut punch of massive fraud on 11/4 and the stiff-upper-lip rallying-yet-afraid-to-hope-too-much during the month of November, many patriots are exhausted from the emotional roller-coaster.
Exhausted and impatient. "C'mon! Let's do this already," is a tweet I often see. "Isn't the storm upon us yet!?! I'm sick of stashing away canned goods and bottled water."
Don't get me wrong: We all still support President Trump 150% but headlines come, headlines go. Tweets come, tweets go. Hopes are raised only to be dashed. Trump's inner circle swirls, sometimes supporting him, sometimes seeming to stab him in the back. Promises of "booms coming" fleet by while the the Swamp still appears to be footloose, fancy free and powerful, running thither and yon, passing bills, giving interviews, threatening lawsuits and ignoring subpoenas. It's maddening!
Through it all, the horrible, gnawing mystery hangs over the nation: Will Trump remain in the Presidency for four more years as the People want?
We know he won the election in a landslide. We know the Left blatantly cheated their a$$e$ off. We know he'll never quit until the Will of the People is carried out. We know he's going to have to win the election all over again via the Electoral College, the Supreme Court and/or the Military. It's the not knowing what will ultimately happen that is gnawing at us.
How can we keep our spirits high and our prayers winging Heavenward when our souls are so tired?
I suggest we take a leaf from the Left's book. After all, they've been fighting Trump for over four years and they're not tired of losing yet! C'mon! We can't let Them have more sticktoitiveness than us!
"Holy crap!" my husband exclaimed.
"What!? What's going on?" I responded, peering over his shoulder at the flight tracking map on his screen.
"Usually there are no more than three military refueling tankers flying over the United States on any given night. I got to ride on one when I was a teen in Civil Air Patrol," he said. "But look! Tonight there are eleven refueling tankers in the air simultaneously. What the hell is going on!?!"
If military air traffic gets your motor going, your go-to guy is "MonkeyWerx" aka "MilSpecOpsMonkey." His profile describes him as a "Christian, Prayer Warrior, For God and Country, USAF Spec Ops Veteran, Texan, Aerospace and Defense Guru" and more specifically, "third generation military veteran who has spent more than thirty years in the aerospace and defense industry working on advanced weapons programs." That's good enough for me.
For the past three years, MonkeyWerx has been following military air traffic above the US, writing about it and making YouTube videos once a week...until now. Now he makes videos almost daily because there's just so damn much going on!
Military air traffic above the continental United States has quadrupled (at least!) since MonkeyWerx started his YouTube channel and he's quick to remind us that's only the air traffic we're allowed to see. The increase can't be simply explained away by bringing our men and women in uniform home from overseas so the question on everyone's lips is, "What the *$&@%!$# is going on!?!"
