It’s frankly hilarious that Pelosi presumably denied Trump’s request for 10,000 National Guard members on January 6. Now she apparently can’t get enough of the National Guard for varied reasons, which can also mean no reason at all.
For weeks, various political representatives, particularly within the GOP, have attempted to have Nancy Pelosi explain herself in terms of the apparent need for a massive, ongoing military presence in D.C. Unsurprisingly, the most information the left will give pertains to vague threats of “political extremism” and other deliberately general words.
So vague and general that virtually anyone could attract that label from the Democrats, such as anyone who voted for Trump, for instance.
Well, apparently the Democrats have suddenly decided some imminent threat is coming to D.C., and now the Capitol Police have enhanced their own security in response to this sudden change in near-term political stability.
This plot is apparently aimed at March 4 for some reason, as announced by the U.S. Capitol Police.
“The United States Capitol Police Department is aware of and prepared for any potential threats towards members of Congress or towards the Capitol complex … We have obtained intelligence that shows a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group on Thursday, March 4 …
[We] have already made significant security upgrades to include establishing a physical structure and increasing manpower to ensure the protection of Congress, the public and our police officers.” [Source: Fox News]
Gotta love the ordering of the words at the end of the statement from the Capitol Police. Apparently, protect Congress first, then the public, and then, lastly, police officers. In other words, politicians take precedence above all.
It would be just lovely if they had the same consideration for Americans living near the border, who are currently dealing with the massive influx of illegal immigrants (wearing Biden shirts, no less) entering the nation.
And while Americans who travel overseas now have to have a negative COVID test taken within the past 72 hours, illegal immigrants are also apparently exempt from this requirement. On the contrary, even when the illegal immigrants are COVID positive, they are still permitted to enter the nation.
Americans, on the other hand, will be blocked from re-entering the nation without a negative COVID test. Real message of “unity,” right?
Including the unity wherein all of the swamp is united towards their long-term political power, rather than genuine representation of all American citizens and all their needs.
Speaking of long-term political power, the Democrats, once again, have failed to offer evidence for their demands for increased National Guard member presence on Capitol Hill.
For instance, Fox News discovered that D.C. has “no increase in hotel occupancy or flights,” and even “less detail” appears in the memo regarding March 4 than the Norfolk memo regarding January 6.
Nonetheless, Democrats apparently remain fearful over “a small contingent” causing great harm to the Capitol, noting that “all it takes is a van full of people with weapons to mess with the National Guard.”
A van full of people with weapons. Hm. Where else has that been seen before? Oh, that’s right … all over New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Portland, where federal structures were also under attack.
Where was the “increased” security then? Oh, that’s right … Trump offered to send in the National Guard to help, though he was resoundingly rejected. And the clear and present danger of those riots, which included multiple deaths, was fully on display.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) also apparently has limited information, noting that they had no “specific” information, aside from the fact that “violent riots” continue to break out across the nation.
“DHS does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot; however, violent riots have continued in recent days and we remain concerned that individuals frustrated with the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances and ideological causes fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize a broad range of ideologically-motivated actors to incite or commit violence.” [Source: Fox News]
Did DHS bother to check out the origins of those riots? As Portland and Seattle appear to be the locales most routinely impacted by “peaceful protests.”
One can only hope that nothing occurs on Capitol Hill again, as that would likely make the leftists in charge even more inclined to propel the United States of America straight into the United States of Communism.
