The show in Washington, D.C. is over for Biden and Pelosi – they showed us all how they can flex their political muscle and have some 25,000+ National Guard soldiers deployed to the nation’s Capital to remind us all that they are now in charge of Washington! It did not bother them in the slightest that they disrupted the private lives of these Guardsmen and women that were sent to D.C. from all 50 states. Pelosi demanded their presence because the threat from you and me was considered extreme – not because they are afraid of us; it was because they stole a presidential election, and they all know it. They are afraid that we are not over it yet – and they would be correct. However, we are not ANTIFA or BLM, and because of that, there were no riots nor even a single inauguration-related arrest in D.C. on January 20th.
But Biden and Pelosi needed a show of force to remind us that we need to stay in our place and just obey! So, the National Guard was brought to D.C., in the middle of a Pandemic which they have told us all was mismanaged by Trump.
But they will get it right…WRONG! What they have done is create a “Super Spreader” event. The troops did not receive proper housing upon their arrival and were told to billet inside the Capital Building.
The picture below tells the story: literally thousands of soldiers sleeping and eating on top of each other with no social distancing being enforced. Sleeping in the halls and on the floors with limited toilet facilities, all so Nancy and Joey could look good.
This is followed by the really bad news. As reported in Politico:
“Already, hundreds of Guard members who poured into Washington…have tested positive for Covid-19 or are quarantining in nearby hotels, three Guard sources said. Guard leadership has declined to release an official number of positive cases, but troops and lawmakers alike worry that the deployment is becoming a super spreader event.”
This was not a deployment to war; this was a presidential inauguration, so why was everyone so careless with the disposition of these men and women who do this job out of love of country?
Where was the leadership in all of this? The Chief of the National Guard Bureau did not waste any time getting on television to tell us about the 12 soldiers they found that might have tweeted that they did not like Biden, but he did not have time to inspect the living conditions that his troops were subjected to?
The Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff – AWOL!
The Secretary of the Army – MIA!
The Governors of the States – “NOT PRESENT SIR!”
It was reported that Governor Hogan of Maryland made a special trip to D.C. to see his troops. Perhaps if he had ever served, he would know the difference between wartime accommodations and sleeping on the floor of your Nation’s Capital. And the unit chain of command from State Attorney Generals to the lowest Second Lieutenant – DISMAL FAILURES!
At last report there are now over 100 soldiers who have tested positive for the virus:
So please Joey, stop lecturing the rest of us about how you are going to “smash” this virus or why we should wear masks or keep the children from school or allow businesses all over the country to fail. This is an EPIC FAIL, and if any of these Patriots die from their exposure, you can be sure that their death is on your hands and the hands of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. It could be speculated that you might just be charged with MURDER – right, Nancy?
