Reporter Exposes How Democrats Defied National Guard Chief To Keep DC Under Military Occupation

The Biden Administration overruled a request from the head of the National Guard to remove troops from the nation’s capital, instead ordering that the military occupation around the centre of government must continue.

Fox News reporter Gillian Turner revealed Thursday that Gen. Daniel R. Hokanson, penned a letter opposing a further stay of thousands of his National Guard troops in DC, yet was ignored by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, referred to as ‘the guy that runs that outfit over there’ by a president who cannot remember his name or that of the building he works in.

Austin instead decided that almost 3000 National Guard troops will stay at the Capitol at least into May.

Hokanson outlined how the National Guard is already over-stretched due to coronavirus constraints, civil disturbances and wildfires.

The General also expressed concerns about how Democrats are using the guard as a permanent military presence.

“I am concerned that the continued indefinite nature of this requirement may also impede our ability to man future missions as both adjutants general and guardsmen alike may be skeptical about committing to future endeavors,” the memo stated.

Pentagon press secretary John Kirby announced that the guard’s presence will continue to be funded by the US military, but refused to reveal specifics of why troops are being kept in DC.

“I’m not going to speak to specific threat. And as I’ve been trying to say over the last few days, it’s not just about the threat environment in a highly polarized, hypercharged environment that we’re in right now,” Kirby declared.

“It is very much about a capacity assistance to the Capitol Police as they begin to flesh out and develop what they’re going to need long term to deal with a new reality on Capitol Hill,” he added.

“A new reality.”

As we highlighted earlier this week, Democrats want that new reality to consist of some sort of permanent military reaction force.

As commentators such as Tucker Carlson have warned, the troops are not going away, they are there to “prop up the regime”.

Since January 6th, phantom threats, including the likes of “QAnon Inauguration Day”, have been continually touted to maintain the martial law style lockdown of Capitol Hill.

Video: Gulag Fencing Goes Back Up Around Capitol; Trump Warns ‘It’s a Setup’

Complete with a motion sensing watchtower

The black prison-like fencing that was a mainstay around Capitol Hill during the first half of the year has gone back up ahead of a protest scheduled this weekend, which President Trump has warned is a “setup”.

The fencing has been re-erected in response to the “Justice for J6” rally planned for Saturday at the US Capitol building, which is focused on the 600 defendants being detained for being part of the January 6th incident.

Video of the fencing also reveals that a motion-tracking watchtower has been put into place, presumably fitted with face recognition cameras and whatever other surveillance equipment is at hand to deploy on Americans practising their right to freedom of speech.

Capitol Police have said the fencing will come down again straight away, if the protest is carried out peacefully.

A statement also noted that “The USCP has asked the Department of Defense for the ability to receive National Guard support should the need arise on September 18.”

As The Hill contributor Don Wolfensberger notes, “The new protective barrier, even if only temporary, as officials insist, still reinforces public perceptions that Congress is once again walling itself off as fortress on a Hill, above and apart from the people it purports to represent.”

He continues, “And that perception only further exacerbates the widening gulf of distrust between the government and the governed. Will a new fence be re-installed every time a planned rally threatens potential violence against Congress?”

Meanwhile, President Trump has warned that the event on Saturday could be used as a “setup”.

In an interview with The Federalist, Trump said “On Saturday, that’s a setup,” adding “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed.”

In a further statement, Trump noted “Our hearts and minds are with the people being persecuted so unfairly relating to the January 6th protest concerning the Rigged Presidential Election.”

He added that “in addition to everything else, it has proven conclusively that we are a two-tiered system of justice. In the end, however, JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL!”

    Carlson: Milley Undercutting President Trump “One Of The Scariest Things That Has Ever Happened In This Country”

    “You often hear people say they’re worried about authoritarianism coming to America, well it’s here.”

    Tucker Carlson responded to the news that General Milley went behind President Trump’s back and promised to warn China ahead of any military operations, by labelling it “one of the scariest things that has ever happened in this country.”

    “Let that sink in,” Carlson urged, quoting Milley allegedly saying to China’s top military commander, General Li Zuocheng “If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”

    Carlson continued “So according to this account, our country’s top defense officials secretly colluded with our chief military rival to undercut the elected President of the United States.”

    “That’s treason. It is a crime. And apparently, Mark Milley is not the only person who was implicated in this crime. Others knew it was happening,” Carlson continued.

    “Our intelligence agencies almost certainly heard Mark Milley’s call. If they can read emails from a cable news show on Fox, what are the chances they were aware that the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff was speaking to a senior Chinese general and what they were saying,” Carlson said, referring to previous allegations that the U.S. intelligence spied on his communications.

    Carlson concluded, “You often hear people say they’re worried about authoritarianism coming to America, well it’s here. That’s what this is. It’s authoritarian government. It’s government by unelected unaccountable leaders who are willing to use violence to preserve their power.”

    VIDEO: Senator Demands To Know “Who Cuts Off Biden’s Mic?”; “We Need To Know Who’s In Charge”; “This Is A Puppeteer Act”

    Leftists claim that it’s ‘absurd,’ ‘bizarre’ and ‘ridiculous’ to suggest Biden is being muted by someone during live streams, despite clear evidence

    Republican Senator James Risch demanded Tuesday to know who is in charge of cutting off Joe Biden’s microphone when he goes off script, as has been witnessed several times over the past few months.

    During a hearing before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Risch  asked Secretary of State Anthony Blinken who is “calling the shots?”

    “One of the things we need to get to the bottom to is who is responsible for this? Who made the decisions?” Risch said, referring to Biden’s Afghanistan debacle. The Senator then added that Biden “can’t even speak without someone in the White House censoring it or signing off on it.”

    Risch further urged “This is a puppeteer act, if you would, and we need to know who’s in charge and who is making the decisions.”

    “There is not enough lipstick in the world to put on this pig to make it look any differently than what it actually is,” Risch added regarding the Afghanistan mess, adding “The American people want to know who is responsible for this?” 

    “Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and stop the president, cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound. Who is that person?” Risch then directly asked Blinken, who denied that this had ever happened or that there was any such person.

    Tweeting out the video, leftists insisted the claims were ‘bizarre,’ ‘ridiculous’ and ‘absurd’:

    The incident Risch was specifically referring to happened a few days ago:

    Yet, this isn’t the first time the White House has cut Biden’s feed. Biden’s audio feed was cut last month as he was about to respond to a reporter’s question on his administration’s military withdrawal deadline from Afghanistan.

    As we reported at the time, the feed was muted (it’s on a delay) because Biden made a sardonic comment.

    The White House also cut the feed during a live streamed event in March after Biden said, “I’m happy to take questions if that’s what I’m supposed to do …” 

    Also, according to Politico, Biden’s staffers have admitted to cutting him off to avoid gaffes.

    And as we have seen, it isn’t far fetched to suggest Biden is micromanaged:
