Phil Mudd on @CuomoPrimeTime is answering my earlier question in re simultaneous terrorist/mass violent events right now.
I like Phil Mudd.
Phil essentially said what I said (obviously Phil is the CT experienced practitioner) but was along same lines. Can't deploy everywhere-- replying heavily on local police; depletes resources.

I am assuming that newly radicalized actors potentially moving to the far reaches of the dark web to plan multi-event simultaneous violence/terrorist events in the US have digital trails from their radicalization on social media. Thinking out loud (con't)
Here is the deal-- very high impact singular terrorist events in the US were rare, because they requires expertise (specialty bomb making), tightly organized groups (e.g.) AQ, and clean skins. AQ was born in secret war, and also religiously had
adopted some 'ketman'-like Sufis qualities. So that is one thing-- a lot of the so-called lone wolf events are people ramming cars or mass shootings. The thing is what seems to be happening with the FBI bulletin

Hey, is this a fire extinguisher guys? Guy is using it to smash the window. (This is around were the police officer was murdered.) It is shaped similarly in body. Or is this something else? It's black. It has top pin, tho and a side handle with straps. Image
This is a freeze frame from :32. It looks like a fire extinguisher to me, except for the top, clamp with the silver pin? Has a red label on the cylinder. Image
Reason I am curious is that AP reported, "one protester hurled a fire extinguisher at a officer" who was murdered at this location after this…

"'[T]he recent precedent of the plot to storm the Michigan Capitol building while Congress was in session...mind-boggling that the police were not better-prepared,'” said Rita Katz, executive director of SITE Intelligence Group."
"Twitter said it was particularly concerned about contributing to a possible 'secondary attack' on the U.S. Capitol and state government facilities next weekend."

You know this argument by Senators, who say that they are afraid to oppose Trump, because of their constituents is suspect. For one thing, for so-called American Constitutionalists, who profess a love for Founder's intent , they should re-read Fed No 62. Their role is sobriety
both in terms of experience and stability of character to temper the passions and factionalism of Congress (and to steady ship of state). We have a hoard of Senators who are basically moral relativists who appeal to the worst in Americans. They are only making the case for why
they are not elite or special enough to handle that level of responsibility. They are to afraid to lead-- they merely follow the passions of the mob.…

Hey, I want to discuss something in the public interest, that is speculation, but informed in a narrow respect, at least from my experiences in 2011; & it would be related reports I have read from folks like @warkin about intelligence on any possible violence on Inauguration.
I can't speak to the historical precedence of 'occupying capitols,' but in Wisconsin 2011 protests were to my mind where this notion arose right at the pt when the Internet began becoming a force in protests/politics around the world.
This time period 2010 and 2011 was not the first time social media was used as a mechanism for protests politics (Iran in 2009 was probably the first I can remember, and there were prior hints of this capacity in the 2004 US presidential election, where Joe Trippi surmised that
