National Guard Starts Departing D.C. This Week After Four Months

National Guard Starts Departing D.C. This Week After Four Months

They’ve been in D.C. since January after the Capitol Hill riots.

The National Guard who have been in Washington, D.C., since January 6th will leave this week.

From WUSA9:

The 2,149 National Guard troops will return home this week after there were no further requests from the Department of Defense (DoD) to extend the mission supporting the Capitol mission.

“The Capitol Police have not requested the Guard to stay past May 23. Once the mission concludes, D.C. National Guard will return to normal operations and the out-of-state Guard members will return to their home station,” Capt. Chelsi B. Johnson with D.C. National Guard Public Affairs said in a statement to WUSA9.

The Pentagon deployed about 26,000 National Guard troops after the Capitol Hill riots, which cost $500 million.

The troops hit hardships upon their arrival:

The Guard’s deployment to the Capitol has been troubled. Early on, Guard members were briefly forced to take rest breaks and meals in a nearby cold garage, sparking outrage within the Biden administration. Officials quickly found new spaces within Congressional buildings for the on-duty breaks.

in [sic] addition, Guard members complained of bad food, including some who said they became sick.

They were supposed to leave by March 12, but Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin extended a stay for 2,300 troops.

The National Guard’s presence was just theater, Penance should be a uniform for all those special people, with large bullseyes, front and back. and one on the cap 🙂 They can wear Kevlar under it. Media would love it.

All just for show, same as the original BS. Kevlar in summer would make them stink, same as their character.

1) I assume that the National Guard troops will be relieved at their posts by ANTIFA.

2) Just in passing, there are reports today that the Capitol building’s exterior doors are secured by electronic locks operated from a control center inside the building. They can only be unlocked from that center, on command OR by a fire alarm for evacuation purposes. There was no fire alarm, which mean that those who were inside had to be let in by someone’s command.

There’s a tour of duty that anyone should be ashamed of.

Medals for everyone!!

Remember how much the Dems howled when Trump sent the National Guard into Portland for a week to keep Antifa from burning down the Federal courthouse? They said it was dictatorial.

But when the Dems sent the NG into DC for 20 times as long, that was just fine for a free country.

So does this mean The Insurrection is over?

First 9/11 and now this. We really dodged a bullet. It took only four months to save our ‘Sacred Democracy’ this time. Imagine… It could have been worse than 9/11 if Comrades Biden and Pelosi had not acted so quickly and so decisively.

Too bad a lot of misguided angry flag waving grandpas and grandmas will have to do some hard time.

So they finally are getting out of that parking garage. I hope they learned to hate democrats while there. It is what could be classed as a mugging by a liberal.

Good bye you NAZI bastards.

How much you want to bet the administration shorts them on deployment pay?

That’s a hallmark Democrat tactic — stiff the useful idiots.

I don’t understand this story at all. I read it three times. It didn’t mention trans National Guards(people) at all.

Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff and the rest of the America Haters found out that there is a price for stealing a national election. If you are stupid enough to believe that a fossilized, totally corrupt, sexual deviant, pathological liar with a 47 year history of accomplishing absolutely nothing of significance in Washington and who has early stage dementia actually got more votes than any president in history….then you are an incredibly naive fool.

Bet they were bored to tears waiting for the next “insurrection.”

Four months of serving as powerless stage props for the vile Dhimmi-crats’ theatrical and contrived vilification of conservative Americans.

Too bad the Dhimmi-crats didn’t feel like calling out the Guard when the Dhimmi-crats’ goose-stepping, jackbooted thug-supporters in the Party’s paramilitary arms of “Anti-fa” and “Black Lives Matter” were murdering innocents, destroying neighborhoods and businesses in scores of cities, desecrating synagogues and generally engaged in insurrectionist/terrorist behavior, throughout most of the year 2020.
