Chaotic Week With DC Change Ahead

On a personal note, last Sunday was the 50th anniversary of my taking the oath as a Congressional staffer when I became the legislative assistant for my hometown Congressman while finishing my senior year at American University. In 1971 there were large anti-Vietnam protests in DC and the Capitol was surrounded by armed troops. One day I was driving to work, and my car was surrounded by protesters and troops came to my rescue and escorted me up to Capitol Hill. Disruption and even violence are not new. The lack of preparation on Capitol Hill Wednesday was inexcusable. In my Monday note for Fundstrat, I wrote about the likelihood of trouble with those attending the rally on the National Mall, so I just don’t understand how the Capitol stood basically unprotected. A very troubling day for the USA.

Georgia race: It’s hard to believe that the news of two Democratic wins in Georgia was all but overlooked by the invasion of the Capitol; it was an historic election which will change control of the Senate on Jan. 20th when Vice President Harris starts to preside.
