WASHINGTON, D.C. – A man was arrested at a Washington D.C. inauguration checkpoint with a loaded gun and hundreds of rounds of ammo.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. on Friday, January 15, 2021, United States Capitol Police (USCP) officers stopped a suspect at North Capitol Street and E Street, NE, at a security checkpoint put in place for the Presidential Inauguration for election winner Joe Biden. The suspect presented a non-government issued credential, and the officers observed a handgun in plain sight – reportedly loaded with 17 rounds and ready to fire – in the suspect’s vehicle. A search of the vehicle also found numerous rounds of ammunition – reportedly over 500 hollow point rounds.

The suspect was placed under arrest and transported to USCP Headquarters for processing.

The suspect has been identified as Wesley Allen Beeler, 31, of Front Royal, Virginia. He has been charged with Carrying a Pistol without a License (CPWOL); Possession of Unregistered Firearm, and Possession of Unregistered Ammunition.

Beeler was reportedly released on his own recognizance but judge issued a “stay away” order from D.C. Reports say Beeler’s pickup truck has bumper sticker saying, “If they come for your guns giv ‘em your bullets first”.

    Never has a president been so radically attacked by the swamp. He’s been railroaded from before day one.

    He was a hired security guard and says he didn’t have anywhere near that amount of ammo. More Democrat lies.

      Hired by who? The whole attack on the capitol was planned by trump and his cartel. It was set up months ago in case he lost the election. They planned to overthrow the results of the election thru armed insurrection and used those trump supporters to feed the insurrection.

          I know you all know this, but I’m kind of a numbers nerd. I like to put things in that context. Let’s go back in time to the buildup of Trump’s narrative that the election was “stolen” from him. He started pushing that talking point long before Election Day. In fact, he said several times over the past few years; “The only way I can lose, is if they cheat.” Absurd, I know, but as his followers have demonstrated, a thinking person’s absurdity is an Orc’s reality. The cult leader said it, ergo, it’s true.
          There are 744 hours in the month of January— 31 days X 24 hours. (See? Nerdy already). Donald Trump first summoned his Orcs to Washington on December 19th at 6:42 AM, in a tweet: “Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election. Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!” That gave them 18 days advance notice. All the various Orc chapters and their deranged affiliates; the Proud Boys, QAnon, Oath Keepers, etc. made arrangements to be at the Ellipse in Washington, per Trump’s invitation, on that day. The same day Speaker Pelosi was to preside over the certification of the 2020 election.
          The whole gang was at the Ellipse to greet them. Trump himself of course, but also Butchwax and Lurch, accompanied by their respective molls, Kimberley and Lara. As well as Ghouliani. Freshly pardoned Michael Flynn and Roger Stone were there too. (Flynn later said the siege at the Capitol “reminded me of the Bible, when soldiers and priests breached the walls of Jericho.”)
          .For several hours before Flynn’s sick Bible fantasy took place, Trump’s entourage stepped up to the mic, taking turns working up the crowd. They timed it perfectly.
          .Approximately half an hour before the certification of the 2020 election was to take place—about as long as it would take to walk the mile and a half from the Ellipse to the Capitol, Donald Trump instructed the slobbering horde to “walk down to the Capitol,” their arrival perfectly coinciding with the commencement of the process that would end Donald Trump’s political career—and begin his new life as a defendant in multiple courtrooms.
          .The location of the “Stop the Steal” rally was a 30 minute walk from the Capitol.

            The date of the rally was the very same day the House of Representatives was to certify the election.
            The hour…the VERY HOUR Donald Trump turned his army of miscreants loose was as perfectly timed as any Olympic synchronized swimming event. They stormed the building at the EXACT moment the official tally had begun. At that one hour out of 744 during the month of January, a thirty minute walk from the epicenter of Trump’s political and personal demise.
            As I said, you already know all this. It’s history now. But for any Trump defenders to still claim the events of January 6, 2021 weren’t carefully choreographed; that it was just a rally that got out of control, they’re lying through their teeth. They KNOW better. It was classic Trump showmanship taken to its ugliest.
            .We’re barely at the beginning of the discovery process that will (hopefully) expose who else was in on the conspiracy. The Stop the Steal rally didn’t devolve into an insurrection in a vacuum. No way in hell. It was as carefully choreographed as the Bolshoi Ballet. Donald Trump’s gold medal for his performance was bestowed upon him on Wednesday by the very people he tried to have KILLED… in the form of his second impeachment in a year.

            In my opinion, the entire attack was planned by Trump and his allies. The investigation is showing this day after day as more facts and evidence are uncovered. The attackers are troubled people. They are bored. They are angry at how their lives turned out. Looking for purpose. They want to be heroes and have found a “cause” or causes – much of that rooted in the “Q” conspiracies. This movement is turning troubled people into dangerous people who are armed and think they are fighting to change the world and re-shape it in a way that they are no longer the losers that they are, the outcome of their war will be meaning and equality for THEM, as opposed to the loserdom that they are currently wallowing in.

            Trump accused Ted Cruz of cheating in the 2016 Iowa Republican presidential caucuses in Iowa, which Cruz won Iowa over Trump. In a book, it is claimed Trump pressured the Iowa GOP to throw out the results. Trump cannot fathom losing and if he does lose, the other guy cheated.
