Let’s be clear about the fact that the fascist military occupation of Washington D.C. is a Biden administration policy being pushed by a handpicked hack over the opposition of actual professionals in the National Guard and the Army.
It’s a dangerous political move that ought to be condemned.
The Biden regime has pushed for yet another extension of his military occupation of the nation’s capital over the protests of the National Guard.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin overruled the opinion of National Guard Bureau Chief Dan Hokanson when he approved a two-month extension of the National Guard presence at the Capitol following the riot of former President Donald Trump’s supporters on Jan. 6.
Austin’s decision to allow 2,300 National Guard members to continue patrolling a vast, barbed wire perimeter surrounding the Capitol complex was not rooted in specific threats, the Pentagon recently admitted, but to give Capitol Police more time to fill staff and capability gaps.
Hokanson wrote a memo, obtained by Fox News, outlining his concerns with the mission, which began after the Capitol riot and was initially slated to end on Friday.
“I am concerned that the continued indefinite nature of this requirement may also impede our ability to man future missions,” the memo reportedly said. “Efforts to date have not secured enough volunteers among supporting states to meet the USCP request of 2,280 soldiers, nor Option B of 1,000 soldiers.”
That’s why the Biden regime has been talking about involuntary activation.
The Department of Defense is reportedly considering issuing involuntary activation orders to keep National Guard troops stationed at the U.S. Capitol.
The deliberation on a mandatory activation of reservists comes just one day after Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said he will be extending the National Guard troop’s time stationed at the U.S. Capitol until May 28, following a request from Capitol Police.
All this is happening after National Guard troops were fed undercooked meat, metal shavings, and worms, resulting in hospitalizations. And that comes after a protest by a Democrat staffer banished troops from sleeping in the Capitol to sleeping in a cold parking garage. Coronavirus cases have been rising among the troops and at least one soldier is reported to have died recently.
The Army wanted to cut troop numbers, but Austin, Biden’s handpicked hack, refused.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s decision to keep nearly 2,300 National Guard troops on Capitol Hill security duty through May 23 came after the secretary decided against an Army recommendation that less than half that number was actually needed to support US Capitol Police.
And so the illegal Biden military occupation continues to the detriment of the troops, of our constitution, and our country.
