It’s Time For The GOP to End Biden’s Capitol Occupation—Free countries do not turn their legislatures into armed camps
@Panzerhund @TimeBandit @Highlander @Werwolf @Cathy @PotstickerSwatstika @Auslander-Raus! @Vilis_Hāzners

The Democratic Party’s Praetorian Guard isn’t leaving any time soon. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin (the guy Joe Biden can’t remember the name of) announced Tuesday that 2,300 National Guard troops will stay deployed around the U.S. Capitol until at least May 28. For a minimum of four and a half months, the nerve center of America’s “civilian” government will be under occupation, with four soldiers on hand for every elected lawmaker. Leaked emails indicate there are already plans for keeping soldiers around into the fall.

Don’t be surprised if they stay even longer.

It is now overwhelmingly clear that the only thing the Capitol troops are “protecting” is a Democratic political offensive against supporters of President Trump.

After the Capitol riot on January 6, the U.S. government initially deployed a ludicrous 25,000 Guardsmen around Washington D.C. In 1877, America had a mere 24,000 soldiers for a country of 45 million, 12 years removed from a civil war and still battling Indians on the frontier. Now, an army of that size is deployed just to protect the government against its own voters.

The truth, though, is that not a single Guardsman was ever needed in Washington. There was no coordinated plan to “attack” the Capitol en masse, before or after poor police crowd control allowed the incident on January 6. During her testimony before Congress on March 3, FBI assistant director for counterterrorism Jill Sanborn admitted that, to her knowledge, not a single firearm was confiscated at the scene of the Capitol riot, and the only shot fired was by police, not one of the protesters:

“How many firearms were confiscated in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds during that day?” Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson asked Jill Sanborn, the FBI official, during a Senate Homeland Security hearing.

“To my knowledge, we have not recovered any on that day from any other arrests at the scene at this point,” replied Sanborn, who serves as FBI assistant director for counterterrorism.

“I don’t want to speak on behalf of Metro and Capitol police, but, to my knowledge, none,” she added.

Sanborn also said that no shots were fired at the Capitol, save for the one fired by a police officer that killed Ashli Babbit, an Air Force veteran from California.
“I believe that the only shots that were fired were the ones that resulted in the death of the lady,” Sanborn testified, referring to Babbit. [Daily Caller]

Even now, exactly one person has been charged with illegally bringing a gun onto Capitol grounds. That charge, and all other gun charges against Capitol riot participants, have all been for illegally possessing weapons or accessories, not for using them in any manner to attack others.

So, the “threat” to the Capitol was a flimsy one from the beginning. Nothing since has changed that reality. Last week, the House canceled its Thursday work session. The justification was Capitol Police “intelligence” of a planned militia breach of the Capitol. Of course, the cancellation was a stunt; the Senate continued its work as normal and absolutely no threat materialized. Nobody genuinely expected one. Even the January 6 riot was the product of poor police crowd control, not any kind of organized “plan.”


Every remotely-plausible “threat” to the Capitol is something that can be handled just fine by the Capitol Police, provided they decide to do their jobs instead of be recklessly incompetent. Said police force has 2,300 personnel and an annual budget of $460 million, larger than the Atlanta police department. The idea that thousands of soldiers are needed to “secure” the Capitol for months on end is ludicrous.

But of course, that reveals the truth: The soldiers aren’t there to secure the Capitol at all. Their purpose is not military defense, but instead ideological offense. They are there to humiliate and intimidate Republicans and their supporters.


Free countries do not turn their legislatures into armed camps. The United States made it more than two centuries without permanent fencing around the Capitol, but now the Capitol Police are demanding exactly that. The fortification and military occupation of the U.S. Capitol is a fitting symbol of what America has become: A decaying and increasingly unfree empire, managed by a corrupt, dysfunctional, clownish and illegitimate ruling class that despises the people it governs.




For as long as the National Guard stays deployed around the Capitol, they are a political weapon in the hands of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and the collection of Democratic White House known by the synecdoche “President Biden.” The message they send, amplified by a compliant press, is “Republicans and their voters have put the republic in danger. We need a huge military force to protect us from the massive threat of right-wing violence.”

The omnipresent National Guard is a justification for a political state of emergency, an excuse to roll back constitutional rights and reduce conservatives and nationalists to a subservient role. And because Republicans have been trained to reflexively “support the troops” regardless of context, many elected Republicans have eagerly played along.

This article should be read by every GOP mug off.

Anyone in support of this treason should be arrested and the jogger assasin of Ms Babbit prosecuted for politically/racially motivated murder.

Who believes this is a free country? Someone, anyone out there? Lol yeah right. The illusion of freedom no longer serves them so they’re removing the carpet, drapes and we’re seeing the bare wall now, like Frank Zappa said.

Also not surprised to Mittens Romney tweeting some stupid bullshit. God forgive me for how much I utterly loathe that unctuous pile of excrement. It simply MUST be a sin to hate someone so much.

Its fortified not for what was allegedly done to the Capitol, its fortified for what those on the Capitol are still planning on doing to this country and its citizens.

They ain't done destroying this country

The GOP was complicit and abandoned their own supporters. Some will do the we support the troops bit. Then the freedom caucus and Rand Paul tier Republicans will make this an issue. Call the Democrats tyrants and be outraged by this abuse of power. The troops at the Capitol is just a political Football now.

2500 troops? I'm pretty sure there's more in DC than in Iraq right now.

I'm sure the ones in Iraq are happier and better fed 😉

Why is anyone still calling for the GOP to do anything?
Yes. I like the gist of this article, but it’s disheartening to see anyone talking about the GOP fixing the situation. Author needs to wake up on that.

I hit maximum cringe anytime I hear someone who would ostensibly be on my side start talking about “the Democrats” as if Republicans aren’t a bigger problem.

They literally are the rear guard party of liberalism, defending the leftward march from any real conservative pushback.

It's as stupid looking and pointless as talking to a ventriloquist's dummy.
Sad, but true. We did the whole bit of "let's be honest and use the system's full resources" has done what we wanted. Which was use all political avenues available before we use unconventional methods. Now we know without a shadow of a doubt that elections on a federal level are useless, but we still have some control over local elections. Use this to our advantage for better way of life and secession.

While we do that we know the republicans will be lincoln loggin' each other and accepting defeat in the name of never possible revenge, us common sense folk know now it is pointless. That makes our challenge more virtuous in my opinion.

@Panzerhund @Gian @anyone, really.

Look at all the White troops in those photo ops! Are they starting to do this on purpose? As in if it was all darkies, more Whites would view this as a foreign occupation?
Good question? 🤔

I am surprised the black cop who murdered Ashli Babbit is still being hidden from scrutiny.
Those armed forces patrolling OUR capitol might turn their guns around and go berzerkers on congress. Leadership better cut them loose soon, or individual soldiers will snap and a bloodlust spiral will spin in our favor, loyalty is a razor's edge here.
The other side of the coin is the minute they leave, a domestic terrorist/patriot will attack the softened target rich beltway.
Washington, DC will look like ancient Greece one day, marble ruins with softened edges, in piles, worn smoothe by the winds of war and the sands of time.
The ancient human relics that shuffle down those halls are as frail as a spider's web, hardly worth the effort to swat them out of the way.
Don't doubt me, no two stones will stand together on any of those buildings. As it is, our nation is like a drop of dew in the morning of a hot summer day.

They are just there to absorb the coming false flag CIA attacks so that there can be a high body-count that doesn't include any of the congress.

That’s a brilliant observation.

It’s a similar question as the one we were all asking back when the troops first arrived and they were only publishing pics of shlubby wahmen NG eating takeout and unkempt piles of camo sleeping in the halls, guns leaned up far away against the wall...
