OpenCdA hopes that eventually there will be a complete, accurate, and non-deceptive report written and publicly released about the events surrounding the entry and damage to the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

The “news” media are going to try and give you their often-skewed version which will be mostly based for now on the Joint Intelligence Bulletin (JIB) hyperlinked above.  OpenCdA is providing the entire warning in hopes readers will read it and then compare it to what you hear from the skews media.

In particular, please read most carefully the “Outlook” section on page 5 of 6 of the JIB.  Readers who choose to exercise their right to participate in lawful exercises of free speech and assembly at special events should avoid carrying even lawfully possessed weapons, especially firearms whether carried openly or concealed pursuant to a valid concealed weapons permit.

Responding to recent events including the incident at the US Capitol building law enforcement at forthcoming special events will be hyper-vigilant for weapons.  They will see the weapon and react appropriately to the weapon.  A citizen carrying a lawful weapon lawfully may unwittingly and unintentionally distract a law enforcement officer (or several) thereby giving a violent attacker the diversion he needs to emplace a destructive device or begin an attack.  It will not end well for anyone.


  1. I am hesitate to share this post .. I read the last portion of page 6 and it says no portion of the bulletin “should” be released to the media or general public. But, I guess, the key word is “should”? I have been reading some MSM articles about an “internal” FBI memo that is expecting violence in all 50 states, but find no reference on the FBI site or anywhere else. I wonder if it might be this bulletin. Such a mess we are in and I am reading, we will go thru another extremely deadly wave of Covid. Looks like the Biden presidency is one of real doom and gloom.

  2. Stebbijo,

    If you’re not comfortable sharing the post, then don’t. The document is unclassified. The FOUO or FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY is often applied to information or material which, although unclassified, may not be appropriate for public release.
    I obtained the document from a Yahoo News! hyperlink in an online article. When initially issued, the JIB may or may not have been properly exempt from release under the Freedom of Information Act. If DoJ had exempted it initially, DoJ would have been required to include some statutorily-prescribed information about who exempted it and what the statutory exemption was. I don’t know for sure, but that may be the redacted part under the portion you cited. It is both proper and highly desirable that a federal agency which has exempted material redact the exemption certification when the material is subsequently authorized for release.

    If this JIB had contained national security information that could be lawfully classified, then the entire document would have to display at the top and bottom the highest classification (CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, or TOP SECRET) along with any other protective markings. Additionally, each paragraph(s) would have to have displayed a portion marking showing the highest classification of information in that paragraph (U//FOUO, C//FOUO, S//FOUO, TS//FOUO) along with any protective markings.

  3. I get it, just thought it was kind of ‘goofy’ to read that clause. It should have been redacted before release. But, nothing appears as it seems, these days. I always share your posts because they are among the very few credible out the sources of information out there. Thank you for the explanation.
