Well, it looks like armed National Guard troops are about to become a permanent fixture in Washington, D.C., at least for the foreseeable future.
That is, according to an internal memo from Robert Salesses, assistant secretary for homeland defense and global security.
It reads: “If it's not possible to sustain at the current level with NG personnel, we need to establish the number of NG personnel (DCNG and out-of-state) we can sustain for an extended period — at least through Fall 2021 — and understand additional options for providing DoD support, to include use of reserve personnel, as well as the active component.”
Translated: One way or another, there will be armed troops encamped in the nation’s capital, even if Guard forces must be augmented with active-duty forces and their reserve components.
'The National Guard is conducting prudent planning for the eventual end of the security mission and the return of its Soldiers and Airmen to their home stations,' the National Guard added in a statement.
Now mind you, this isn’t the fault of the National Guard, which is itself a military reserve component of the Defense Department (the Guard also has an active-duty, full-time force presence in each state as well).
But most Guard troops are full-time reservists, meaning they have regular civilian jobs back home. Also, Guard troops are first answerable to governors, as they are the modern incarnation of ‘state militias.’ So it’s understandable that it would be more difficult for Guard forces to handling ongoing deployments to DC — and that’s even if governors would allow their troops to be sent.
All said, the threat — and that’s what it is — to use active-duty, regular Army forces is extraordinary. In fact, it may not even be legal under the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 if their role will be ‘law enforcement.’
It’s extraordinary because it means someone wants to make sure that the nation’s capital is militarized for a long time to come.
But why? What’s the point?
Easy: This is all fear porn.
Democrats are going to milk every last ounce of political opportunity out of the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol Building. They’re going to do so in order to push through a ‘crackdown’ agenda, if you will, involving some form of “Patriot Act 2.0” that will focus on “domestic terrorists,” all of whom, of course, will be “right-wing extremists” — even though they’re not.
And in order to milk this political opportunity, America has to look like a nation under siege — hence the ‘show of force’ in DC.
Patriots (and let’s be clear, there are no ‘patriots’ on the left despite what they say) had better understand that Marxist Democrats and globalists running Joe Biden’s presidency are going to make a push to change our country into something our founders rebelled against.
It’s coming; the warning signs are everywhere, including on the streets of our capital city. Meanwhile, the real threat — the anarchists who ‘riot’ and ‘demonstrate’ on behalf of Antifa and BLM will be free to continue on because they are one element of the Marxist revolution coming soon to a neighborhood near you.
Prepare your hearts, minds, and bodies to resist, patriots. You’re being warned daily what’s coming.
