Photographs and video from Washington, DC over the weekend show National Guard troops allegedly tasked with protecting the Capitol do not have magazines in their rifles.
National Guard are all over the streets with rifles at the ready -- but none of them appear to be loaded.
For contrast, the National Guard troops protecting government buildings in Sacramento and the Illinois State Capitol both have magazines in their rifles.
The Army Times reported on Tuesday that the National Guard troops being sent for Joe Biden's inauguration are being "screened" at the request of Democrats "to ensure that deployed members are not sympathetic to domestic terrorists" -- i.e. Trump supporters.
From The Army Times, "After deadly Capitol riot, Army looking at which troops require security screening ahead of Biden inauguration" (HT: Amuse):
The Army is working to determine which National Guard troops assisting the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration require additional security checks, and is also offering more training on threat detection for those Guardsmen arriving to Washington, D.C., in the coming days, according to the service.It appears as though the regime in Washington doesn't trust the National Guard to be armed -- even despite their additional screening efforts.
In contrast, Saddam Hussein -- who Joe Biden told us was the worst dictator in the world to justify supporting regime change in Iraq -- used to walk around in large crowds surrounded by civilians and soldiers armed with AK-47s (who were known for firing celebratory shots into the air).
Though Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer et al. have spent the last week virtue-signalling and posing as the guardians of democracy against so-called "insurrectionists," the latest Gallup poll shows Congress has only a 15 percent approval rating.
A YouGov poll taken immediately after the "storming" of the Capitol found 21% of Americans overall and a plurality of Republicans 45%-43% were willing to tell a pollster they "approve of the storming of the Capitol Building."
Taken in aggregate, it's probably the right decision for our widely-despised Congress to keep the troops unarmed!
