Pelosi declines to send National Guard troops home from DC duty

After turning Washington, D.C. into something resembling an armed camp in response to unrest that rocked the Capitol on Jan. 6, the current powers-that-be appear to have no intention of restoring conditions in the city to normal anytime soon.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Thursday that the thousands of National Guard troops currently present in the capital city should not be sent home and ought to stay in place “for as long as they are needed,” a statement in apparent agreement with a request from the U.S. Capitol Police that they remain for at least another 30-60 days, according to the Washington Examiner.

Ever since a group of pro-Trump protestors breached the Capitol building earlier this year, thousands of National Guard forces have been brought in and charged with monitoring the area, creating a bizarre, highly militarized atmosphere, complete with 7-feet tall barbed wire fencing.

Pelosi made reference to the request of the Capitol Police to retain roughly 2,000 National Guard forces for upwards of two more months, explaining, “we have to have what we need when we need it, and in the numbers that we need,” ever eager to perpetuate the unsupported narrative that Washington remains under mortal threat from right-wing extremists.

While there has yet to be a final decision on the troop request, Pelosi indicated that it will be reviewed in the very near future, saying:

Hopefully, next week, we will be able to have presentations. The issue of the National Guard is one that will be made by the Capitol Police and the Police Board, and the rest.

The speaker curtailed this week’s House schedule in the wake of new rumors of a potential threat of unrest stemming from a conspiracy theory positing that former President Donald Trump would be returned to power on March 4, the date on which American presidents were inaugurated prior to 1933.

While Pelosi denied that the move was specifically prompted by the talk of a possible attack, she did state that it “made sense” to reduce the number of people at the Capitol on that day, just in case “there were any troublemakers around.”

There have been few, if any, specific explanations of why thousands of National Guard troops are still in D.C., and the inhospitable treatment they have received since their arrival has attracted the attention of many. In addition to reportedly being sent to take rest breaks in freezing parking garages, whistleblowers just this week revealed that at least a dozen soldiers have been sickened by vendor-provided meals that contained raw meat, shaved metal fragments, and moldy produce.

Pelosi’s recent professions of respect and gratitude for the service being rendered by the National Guard stand in stark, yet sadly predictable, contrast to remarks this past summer in which she analogized federal law enforcement officers attempting to restore order to Antifa riot-ravaged Portland, Oregon to “storm troopers.”

  10. PILLOUSER the only loser in dc is you and your an old hag so you have no worries their either, the dc police need to man up and do their job so the National Guard can go home to their FAMILIES, and stop being poisoned with the rotten food from the restaurants in DC, I need one other thing if I ever go their I’m going to bring my own food!

  11. The protestors did NOT BREACH the Capitol Building the doors were UNLOCKED by White House Personnel and the protesters were allowed access to the building !!! STOP LYING about what happened and grow up !!!

    1. I have personally talked with several people who attended the Jan 6 incident. It was posted on Jan 6 showing the busses with the REAL terrorists being escorted to the House. Of course that post was live via an i-phone and was taken down shortly after it appeared.

      The folks who supported Trump were simply walking about, wearing their flags being guided by the capital police. All I have talked with say the same thing. It was NOT the Trump supporters who caused the destruction.

  12. I have a question for Pelosi why wasn’t the National Guard called out when all the riots,stealing, fires destroying peoples property, people being beaten all summer long. I will tell you why because there wasn’t any danger to YOU. The hell with everyone else. You have the nerve to say you care about the American people. You, The Puppet, Kamalface are all a bunch of selfish LIARS!

  13. Queen Nancy need to put her big girl panties and send the troops home. Doesn’t she realize that if someone wanted her dead it would have already happened and it would come from someone on the inside.

  14. Why do they call it ” the peoples house” if the “people” aren’t welcome. Just call it what it is; Nancy’s house of greed and power. She’s outlived her usefulness. How about that seat going to someone that is not an elitist, a drunk, or a vindictive hate-filled prune. How about someone in touch with reality. She claims to speak for the people. She sure as hell does not speak for this American.

  15. The military National Guards need to be pulled out of Washington D.C, let the Democrats and people that chose Biden and Harris defend for themselves. After the way the National Guards have been treated, raw food, metal in their food and having to sleep on the floor of a garage. That is wrong, the military and police need to be treated with respect. Those people that voted for Biden and Harris are a joke. They need to open their damn eyes and see what’s happening. I’m an American that believes that we should fight for the the ones that fought for our country and our freedom. That old hag needs to resign

  16. Hey Pighead these troops have families and jobs they are not your personal security detail to obviously abuse. Yes abuse hell you poisoned some and made them sleep in a parking garage. Remember dim wit your building is the people’s house and we don’t and won’t allow you and other Democratic loser to turn-it into a high security facility. If you and others are afraid then do your job for the people or better yet QUIT and go home to a ticker tape parade in your honor. Oh when your time is up, which many hope will be soon, don’t expect a plot with our heroes at Arlington! Also you can lay in review in the same parking garage you put our heroes in, on the floor

    1. NP has her own security, now she wants the tax payers to foot the bill because she is scared she will fill her depends again…….Those troops/Nat’l Guard, are not even given a decent place to stay, nor decent food………Why should they guard the WH, when it was the DEMS/RINOS all along that caused the riot on Jan 6th…………

      Get all those DEMS/RINOS to pack their own protection………Why should they be any different then JOHN Q PUBLIC that walk the streets of chaos, killers, rapists, etc. etc……….Those politicians are no better than WE THE LEGAL PEOPLE, but were voted in to protect US, and not try to get our tax $$$$ to use for their whims and chaos making……….They let those rioters in other States do anything they wanted………

  17. It would be more cost effective and pragmatic for All the Members of Congress to return to their home states than to pay the salaries and expenses to keep National Guard Troops in place indefinitely.
    Very Selfish and Foolish of Congress and the State Governments not to realize that National Guard Troops have families, Jobs, and real lives outside the organization.

    1. They don’t care about their own people and that is why the dims are NEVER cost effective, but WASTE a lot of TAX PAYERS money, and also, they know they are in the WRONG and are FEARFUL of the People of this country, of which is a FIRST in this country’s history – then again, they are asking for it, when you do RIGHT, you have nothing to FEAR…..!!!!!!

    2. Agree. What has congress done to help any thing. Not for you , not for me, not for the squirrel in the tree. All they have done is make more trouble for all of us.
