Using unnamed sources, all mainstream media is reporting the same thing, that the FBI is warning of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitals and in Washington in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Further, to go to Alaska’s Capital, protesters would have to fly to Juneau, and in doing so, would have to alert Alaska Airlines that they were shipping their firearms.
Juneau is the most isolated state capital in the nation.

Back in 2018, Democrat protesters went to Wasilla, Alaska and occupied the legal proceedings of the Legislature, including taking over legislators’ chairs, where they were set up in a gymnasium. They also chained themselves to the doors, as shown in photos above and yelled at legislators, preventing them from conducting business, and generally creating an unsafe building.
Today, The Washington Post reported that the radio station that hosts conservative talk shows such as Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro, and Dan Bongino, has ordered the hosts to stop saying the election was stolen or they will have their shows cancelled.
