When President Biden celebrated the Democrats victory over former President Trump, on Jan. 20, his inauguration was surrounded with barbed wire, military patrolling the streets, and an underlying threat of political repression.
Twenty-five thousand National Guard were deployed to Washington to act as a deterrent against a nonexistent threat from Americans.
There were more than ten times the troops that were deployed to fight Al-Qaeda.
“Every state, territory, and the District of Columbia will have National Guard men and women supporting the inauguration,” the Defense Department declared.
Tourists to the Capitol were shocked at the scene—razor wire and armed checkpoints were everywhere.
U.S. officials stated the cost of this deployment to protect the president was $500 million, but the troops were getting little benefit.
The National Guard slept in the corridors of the Capitol Building, then when that became offensive to some Democrats, they were relegated to the cold hard cement floors of a parking lot.
Frontpage Mag reported that a whistleblower told 7 Action News nearly 75 meals were thrown out Feb. 28 after metal shavings were found, other meals showed up undercooked with worms, making soldiers sick, forcing soldiers to pay for their own meals to avoid poisoning.
A staff sergeant with the Michigan National Guard, whose identity 7 Action News is protecting, said the problem is not isolated.
“Yesterday, for instance, there were 74 different meals found with raw beef in them,” the sergeant said. “Just yesterday, the lunches were, soldiers had found metal shavings in their food.”
On Monday, the anonymous sergeant provided another update saying, “Now after the raw meat yesterday for dinner they have told us not to eat the meals for the next two days and are giving us MRE’s instead. Soldiers are now paying for all their meals for the next two days in order to get real food.”
According to a closed-door National Guard update given to members of Congress, 59 people had wide-ranging gastrointestinal issues because of food consumed at the Capitol. Some of the troops managed their conditions in their quarters, others required a hospital diagnosis, reported Frontpage.
FBI briefings claimed that “malicious actors may incite violence during First Amendment-protected protests,” and this was the basis for the military occupation. No such protests occurred.
With more than 5,000 police officers already present in the city, and at least 2,000 of them assigned the duty of protecting Congress, no emergency existed that justifies the deployment of 25,000 National Guardsmen.
After Biden’s inauguration, some Republican governors, including De Santis in Florida and Abbott in Texas, began withdrawing their troops, but terrified Democrats have insisted on retaining thousands of guardsmen.
Gov.Pritzker of Illinois declared, “We must root out the dark forces of racism, white supremacy, and disinformation that have created this moment.”
Secretary of the Army John Whitley said that although they don’t know—”There are several upcoming events—we don’t know what they are—over the next several weeks, and they’re concerned that there could be situations where there are lawful protests, First Amendment-protected protests, that could either be used by malicious actors, or other problems that could emerge.”
The Capitol Police issued a press release claiming there was, “obtained intelligence that shows a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group on Thursday, March 4.”
“Now they are thinking maybe we should gather again and storm the Capitol on March 4,” Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) claimed. “Stuff like that circulates all the time, does it mean it’s going to happen, probably not.”
This military occupation was then slated to end on March 4, after the supposed inauguration of President Trump would occur, according to QAnon, but nothing happened.
“Right now, in terms of our expected stay, it is March 12,” Biden’s Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin had told the media. “My plan is to not keep (the troops) there one day longer than is necessary.”
That has turned out to be untrue, as the troops have been given a two month extension. They now will protect the city until May 24.
Biden, Pelosi, and the Democrats want to place Washington under a state of permanent military emergency, reported Frontpage Mag, and this appears to be the case.
