Peace Through Military Power in D.C.



by Mustang

According to Reuters News Agency and Politico sources, up to 21,000 national guard troops were authorized for service inside Washington DC to provide security for the Biden inauguration.  They continue to serve under Major General William Walker, Commanding General, District of Columbia National Guard (which is the only national guard unit that answers directly to the President of the United States through the Secretary of the Army).

According to official national guard officials, their mission is to provide a back-up force to the District of Columbia Police Department, a federal agency, with infantry, communications, air guard, logistics, and coordination responsibilities with all other supporting agencies.


According to General Daniel Hokanson, Chief, National Guard Bureau, the national guard’s “first priority is to protect people and property and the safety and well-being of our national guard personnel and their families.”

The typical mission of the national guard, supporting state governments, is (a) to support civil authorities whose capabilities are insufficient to meet current requirements, (b) protect the life and property of all US citizens, (c) protect critical US infrastructure (d) provide humanitarian assistance during disasters and domestic emergencies, and (e) support law enforcement agencies.  In Washington, D. C., the national guard has been authorized to carry loaded weapons to protect individual members of Congress and their staffs.

Apparently, the President, his cabinet, personal staff, Congress members, and their staff are living in fear for their lives.  To the amazement of any clear-thinking person, the mission seems hardly justified since no one is authorized to carry firearms inside DC except government officials.

The costs associated with this deployment of national guard personnel, funded by the US Department of Defense, suggests that instead of serving in Washington “on loan” from their various states, the federal government federalized these weekend warriors at an estimated cost of around $550.00 per day/per guardsman – or roughly $11.5 million per day.  Their “tour of duty” has been extended through the end of March 2021, equating to around $460 million.

In contrast to the difficulty earmarking money for the southern border security wall, which Trump actually intended to provide security to American citizens and communities located near the Mexican border, the decision to expend forty million dollars to protect the political elite from radicals took all of about forty seconds.

The basis of the threat, the justification for national guardsmen, to begin with, was an FBI assessment that Trump supporters posed a clear and present danger to the “orderly and peaceful” transition of power to the new administration.

According to my sources, the FBI assessment took place in the third stall of the FBI building’s executive washroom.  An entire “division” of national guard expeditionary forces seems a bit of overkill, however.  Still, nothing is too good to protect the lives and well-being of Nancy Pelosi and her sidekick, AOC (who, along with Senator Richard Blumenthal from Connecticut, was a distinguished veteran of the Vietnam War).

    Mustang, local reports of explosive sounds, maybe coming from Eglin. I’m a little too far west to hear unless wind blows just right.
    Few years ago heard the MOAB tests.
    You heard anything as you are closer?
    Some speculation locally that somethings up.

      We’re just west of the gunnery range; we hear the sound of freedom almost every night — the 25’s and 105’s. I have heard a few large explosions … enough to rattle windows, but in the middle of the day and I attribute these to the quarry a few miles east from where we live.

    Sorry Bunker I didn’t see your reply. Guess we’re of the same mind at times.

    Some musings:
    The politicians are finding themselves hiding behind security systems and guns they don’t have to pay for for now but more than ever there is no free lunch. Should the people who’ve been bought off with their own pennies wake up and realize they’re not getting their monies worth what then? Do the pols bring in the Chinese to overwhelm or align with our military to subdue the rabble? I’m not sophisticated enough to go further but the Pelosies and Schumers may already have a price on their heads and a target on their backs. Meanwhile their whipping boy Trump is insignificant in the greater scheme of things. With the sand monkeys no longer of any significance having outlived their usefulness where does Russia and India fit in? Kudos go to corporate and high-tech for buying the presidency for the party that will hand over the country to the foreign powers without so much as a whimper. While the republicans are of no significance whatsoever and the Democrats having been used as a means to an end the GOP will be swept into the dustbin of history with the Democrats being laughed and scoffed at for the coming hundred years. Imagine they thought they would rule the world by using an old man courting Alzheimer’s and a faux negress whose best days were spent on her back.
    Now where the hell did I leave my medications?

      Well, Peter … if you find the clown show amusing, the Chinese, Russians, Taliban, French, and North Koreans are falling down laughing. And the best part of the Biden Administration so far is that the Secretary of State has ordered the rainbow flag (Q Flag) flown at all US Embassies throughout the world. So there are giggles no matter where you go in the world.

      So we know who the Brutus is in this scene. Who are the other generals that will divide the empire after Caesar falls?

      Um … no. The 3,800 DC cops weren’t enough to bring order to the nation’s capital, so we needed a division of NG to bring everything back to normal. Normal … in DC … equates to around 4,000 incidents of violent crime per year. No Pax Romana, I’m afraid, but we have found the yellow brick road, which if we stay on course, takes us absolutely nowhere.

    They’re “fear” is of the monster they created in AntiFa & BLM who apparently aren’t happy with the DemoKKKrats & feel used by them & still to this day continue to riot & burn it down
    Just some information

    Gateway Pundit finally got their request from Detroit Center where they counted the votes for the film footage

    That’s the place where they put cardboard on the windows

    Many people came forward who witnessed ballots being rolled in at 3:30am even signing affidavits

    GP has some 1200 hours of film footage to sort through

    They will be posting what’s on there possibly as soon as today
    For my thoughts I do believe there is something much more going on in DC then just Pelosi & the Lucerferian gang needing protection from We The People

    We used to do this in Banana (and oil, rubber, precious metals and coca) republics all the time. So this makes us a Banana Republic. This has been the goal of the Progressive New Left for 50 years. If you have kids in the military talk with them about the true definitions of duty and loyalty.
