Bronson wrote about this last night. It’s a total disgrace. It’s unforgivable. It’s how this town treats the military. Thousands of National Guardsmen were evicted from the grounds of the US Capitol. They were caught resting in the nearby parking garages. They were deployed to protect the capital from any attack during the inauguration of Joe Biden. The January 6 riot that engulfed the US Capitol was the cause for what could only be described as a military occupation of the city. Luckily, nothing happened when Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. Yet, for the troops who stood guard, this eviction notice reeked of betrayal (via Politico):
Thousands of National Guardsmen were allowed back into the Capitol Thursday night, hours after U.S. Capitol Police officials ordered them to vacate the facilities, sending them outdoors or to nearby parking garages after two weeks pulling security duty after the deadly riot on Jan. 6.
One unit, which had been resting in the Dirksen Senate Office building, was abruptly told to vacate the facility on Thursday, according to one Guardsman. The group was forced to rest in a nearby parking garage without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops, the person said. Temperatures in Washington were in the low 40s by nightfall.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” the Guardsman said.
The news sparked outrage. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) vowed to get to the bottom of this mess. Other members of Congress sent messages of thanks to the troops while offering their office space as a place for them to rest. Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) delivered food to some of the guardsmen. Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) appears to have worked hard to ensure all of the guardsmen are cleared from the garage.
Gropin' Joe's fault. Do it.
Hey military, you SURE you want to take orders from this unelected, illegitimate communist puppet regime that treats you worse than they treat their house pets?
One Freeper noted yesterday that when you’re nothing more than a prop for a TV production, you’re going to get thrown away when the show is over.
That’s what happens when you bring in an army to swat a fly.
They have no choice in the matter (they must do as they are ordered) and likely would rather not have been there but home with their families
Face it, Dems didn’t want their Covid cooties in their private cafeteria. McTurtle agreed.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) vowed to get to the bottom of this mess.

Wile E Coyote vowed to get to the bottom of the ‘who has been harassing’ the ‘road runner’ mess.
ACME vowed to fight the investigation lest they lose all their business.
It’s not a good idea to deploy thousands of armed troops, and then mistreat them.
The Dems are already saying they need more troops in Syria.
Probably start a brand-new war over there.
And guess who gets deployed first?
Now things change. Imagine the coverage if Trump had done that...
Basically the media “cares” only when a Republican is in power...
Hey Guardsmen.....You were USED AS PROPS, and when you weren’;t needed in front of cameras, the Dems DISCARDED you.
You mean like the unitary has been doing in the Middle East's endless war and then treating them like garbage at the VA? That is until President Trump stopped waging wasteful wars and cleaned up the VA.
unitary = uniparty
Look...there is NO plan in place. It’s like you asked some fifth-grader where to put 25k Guardsmen in DC. They just know that the need them.
You look over at the Pentagon....tons of leadership and no one is discussing some ‘camp’ to be put up, or mobile FEMA shelters, or such. There’s no ‘script’.
They just know that more protests are coming for the impeachment business, and the Capital Police are just mall-type-door guards. This is all begging for some Kent State-style mess to occur with 20 unarmed Americans shoot down by aggravated/anxious Nat’l Guardsmen.
You’re most certainly correct about the compromised leadership of the military. Barry purged the high command and used his cadre of top military brass for the last five years to intrigue against Trump. The rank and file national guard troops are just trying to do their job. The rank and file are also products of our anti American public school system so who knows how many of them are brainwashed wannabe socialists too.
