National Guard troops hunkered down at the Capitol building Wednesday night following the House of Representative's historic impeachment vote as workers toiled into the night setting up additional barricades and a non-scalable fence was erected outside the Trump hotel.
Security measures are being heightened inside and surrounding the Capitol in the wake of the January 6 riot that left five dead and ahead of anticipated violence in the countdown to Inauguration Day.
A total of 20,000 National Guardsman have been authorized to descend on Washington to safeguard the nation’s capital. There are already 6,200 troops on the ground in DC and at least 10,000 more will arrive by Saturday.

Kabuki theater. Whatever that is.
I’m not following. Why would antifa riot over the impeachment vote?
Yup...nothing will happen and they’ll still state we’re dangerous Nazis. I don’t care at all regarding our optics...they will demonize for handing out money and food.
Lol. I learned a few years ago to never say “it can’t get any worse.”
Of course no one was going to riot over the impeachment. If they did then it would have only been antifa there. Sad part is that Trump rallies will die down out of fear of this happening again. This is part of there plan. I wish a million people could have shown up outside of the WH with candles in support for Trump. But it would just turn into a mess. Something needs to be done. Trump supporters are going to have to form there own security to rid the rally of antifa.
They’re not making these preparations for we PEACEFUL Trump supporters.
Theater, in fancy Asiatic costume. An elaborate charade.
Such drama. Are Chinese troops preparing to invade or something?
My kids were talking about how glad they were that 2020 was over. I told them that we can be hopeful, but I warned them that 2021 was no magic switch, and there are numerous reasons to think that it will be much worse. (See my tagline).
They gave circulated a flyer promoting armed insurrection—to incite Trump voters—into what is really another false flag operation.
STAY HOME , GUYS. Let the good guys take care of things. Who does the National Guard in DC report to? Yeah, that guy.
“Kabuki theater. Whatever that is.”
It’s a show of strength by the left. The concept of “The Hunger Games” is becoming a reality right before our eyes. Penam is the capitol and each state will now be known as a district. Being from Texas, we will now be called District 43 and we will be known as the energy district.
I propose we send actors to the Hunger Games. For Texas, I suggest Michelle Rodriquez and Jamie Foxx.
Who would you send from your state?
Is 20000 troops more then they deployed for for 9-11? Just wondering, I was to busy in the sand box to know.
“Why would antifa riot over the impeachment vote?”
Because they can with no one to stop them.
I like these visuals; looks like the government in “The Hunger Games”, where it is very clear that they rule without the consent of the governed.
Just saw your post (see 14); spot on.
We’d send Phail Murphy and Cory Booker from NJ; don’t think they’d survive long in the arena...
Looks like the inauguration of any third world dictator.
All the democrats need now are tanks and rockets parading down the street.
These people should not be running OUR country. At least they are scared.
That is bizarre to use Guard troops; these are usually people with 9-5 jobs. This should give some pause before joining, and unfortunately, give some employers pause before hiring (if they can be used as props like this).
