Former President Donald Trump says he was concerned days before the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol about the size of the crowd expected near the Capitol and requested 10,000 National Guard troops to be deployed, but that his request was rejected because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other leaders did not like the optics.

“I requested, I said this rally will be bigger than anything thinks,” Trump told Fox News’ Steve Hilton on “The Revolution” Sunday night, in an interview airing after his CPAC speech. “Everyone said we’ll be at the rally. It was, I think, the largest crowd that I have ever spoken to before. I have spoken to big crowds, hundreds of thousands of people, more than that, but hundreds of thousands of people.”

Trump said he “gave the number” to the Department of Defense that 10,000 members of the National Guard would be needed.

“They took that number, from what I understand, they gave it to people at the Capitol, that is controlled by Pelosi, and I heard they rejected it because they didn’t think it would look good,” said Trump.

According to the National Guard’s website, “the President of the United States can activate the National Guard for participation in federal missions. Examples of federal activations include Guard units deployed to Kosovo and the Sinai for stabilization operations and units deployed to the Middle East and other locations in the war on terrorism.”

On the day after the riot, Trump said in a recorded video that he “immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders.”

Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Sunday on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo” that Trump issued a “direct order” to have up to 10,000 troops ready.

Meanwhile, according to Jane Campbell, the president and CEO of the U..S. Capitol Historical society, Capitol Complex security is the direct responsibility of a four-member Capitol Police Board, which includes both the House and Senate sergeants-at-arms, who report to the leaders of those chambers, reports PolitiFact.

Paul Irving, who had been the House sergeant-at-arms at the time of the attack, Michael Stenger, the Senate’s sergeant-at-arms, and Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund all resigned after the attack.

According to reports from The Washington Post and The New York Times, Irving told Sund he didn’t want troops at the Capitol on Jan. 6 because of “bad optics.”

Pelosi’s office and the Defense Department have not immediately responded to Trump’s comments, reports Fox News.

Trump also told Hilton that he “hated” to see what unfolded at the Capitol, but denied that he was watching the events unfold on television in real time and compared the riot to unrest that took place in cities such as Portland and Seattle last summer.

Now, boys and girls, I’m just spit-balling here, but there a several things that just do not add up in Pelosi and the Democrats’ version of what happened on January 6, 2021.

Information has come out that the “insurrection” was pre-planned. An allegation proven by the fact that pipe bombs were planted and found before the end of President Trump’s speech that day.

Also, the “rioters” were already “storming” the Capitol while Trump was still speaking.

And, why, as seen in the article above, did Pelosi and McConnell block the request for 10,000 National Guard Troops from President Trump, himself?

Oh, and why did the police officers guarding the Capital Building let the rioters in?

By the way, of the two hundred fifty people, out of the tens of thousands who were at Trump’s Speech, arrested for their actions that day, they are finding nut jobs who DID NOT VOTE FOR TRUMP.

In fact, they did not even vote in the 2020 Presidential Election.

Y’know, Pelosi sure is reticent to talk about her duties as Speaker of the House as they pertain to the “insurrection”.

I hope that I do not sound like a conspiracy theorist, but…what if the entire “insurgence” on January 6th was not just preplanned but it was a political frame job by Pelosi and the Democrat Elite.

Come to think of it, my supposition is not that far-fetched when you consider the same crowd attempted to unconstitutionally impeach a private citizen simply because they were overcome with Trump Derangement Syndrome and they did not want to him to be able to run for President again in 2024 or be involved in politics in any way.

And, now those same professional politicians are going to to provide cover for themselves with a “9/11-Style Commission”, once again going after a private citizen in a vendetta which the entire nation has already recognized to be wrong and not important to the needs of our country and her people .

To quote Elmer Fudd, “Something awfuwwy scwewy is going on around heah.”

Nunes: Dems Using National Guard Like a Supporting Actor on a “Hollywood Movie Set”…Or is This “Radical Change” Deja Vu?

See the source image

Newsmax.com reports that

Democrats were using the National Guard like a supporting actor on a “Hollywood movie set,” according to Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., on Newsmax TV.

Opposed to seeing troops in Washington, D.C., under former President Donald Trump, Democrats have a different stance with President Joe Biden in the White House.

“They build a narrative, they create a narrative, and then they have to watch the narrative play out,” Nunes told host Greg Kelly on Friday’s “Greg Kelly Reports.” “And the way they do that is like building a Hollywood movie set.

“Remember at first, and I think this is ultimately going to come out if we ever do learn the truth, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi [D-Calif.] and company didn’t want the Guard there because they had criticized President Trump when the White House was under siege, churches were under fire, and we held these crazy riots all over the country. That’s why they didn’t want the military there.”

More than 25,000 National Guard men and women were positioned throughout Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day, 14 days after protesters violently rioted at the Capitol.

About 5,000 troops remained stationed near the Capitol at the beginning of this week. A Department of Defense spokesperson said they will end their deployment by mid-March.

Nunes said Democrats have tried to take advantage of the troops’ presence, aided by fencing around the Capitol.

“Now, they love it because they get to have the optics that all Republicans, all conservatives are all rioters and very dangerous,” Nunes said. “And so why not have the razor wire and military there — makes us look like a third world country.

“And thank God you’ve got all the 80-year-old Politburo members, the Socialist Democratic Party. They’re going to protect the American people. And the media’s going to protect them, and the social media companies are going to protect them.”

Welcome to the party, Congressman!

Since the long, nightmarish days of the Obama Administration, the Democrats have been moving further and further to the Left of the Political Spectrum.

All the while attempting to indoctrinate the children and grandchildren of average Americans into embracing the failed political theory known as Marxism by hiding it under the nom de plume of “Democratic Socialism” and teaching it as the greatest thing since sliced bread in our public schools and universities.

However, the attempted unraveling of the American System of Faith and Values by Obama and his Administration was just a precursor to what we are now experiencing.

The attack against Donald J. Trump, both before and after he was elected, was all a part of the Democrat’s Plan to achieve totalitarianism.

By attacking a sitting President through fake news, innuendoes, and violence by the “New Bolsheviks”, in conjunction with false charges brought by “Deep State” Operatives, already embedded within our Federal Government, the Democrats were able to tie up President Trump to where it was almost impossible for him to get anything done.,,but, he did.

The final step, which began even before the Chinese released COVID-19 upon the world, was the funding of BLM and Antifa, who were then sent out to riot and destroy our major cities, defiling National Monuments to show how “unfair” a country we are.

If you noticed, it was very rare that any Washington Democrat ever said a mumblin’ word against those Domestic Terrorists.

So, now, the Democrats, after cheating, changing state laws, and delivering “mail-n ballots” under the cover of darkness, have regained the Presidency and thanks to the help of Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Senate, as well.

After that, in a preplanned move, they used a speech given by Former President Donald J. Trump on January 6th to justify turning the “People’s House” and Capitol Hill into a new Kremlin with barbwire fences and thousands of armed National Guardsmen.

If you have watched this develop, you could not help but notice that it is the same political strategy that has been used to turn countries to Marxist Nations since the Russian Revolution of 1917, straight out of Vladimir Lenin’s Playbook.

The National Guard will not be out of there next month as Rep. Nunes believes.

Nancy Pelosi will not let them leave.

They are covering the duplicity of Pelosi and the other Democrat Elite.

Welcome to the USSA, Comrade.

Trump Vows to “Take Immediate Action” to Stop Rioting and Looting Across the Country, Then Visits “a Very Important Place”

Trump-visits-St-Johns-Church

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump said during a statement in the Rose Garden on Monday that he is taking “immediate action” to mobilize “all available federal resources” to stop riots and looting across the country, threatening to deploy the military if states don’t send in the National Guard to protests.

“I will fight to protect you,” Trump said in an evening protest, ahead of what’s expected to be more protests in the city of Washington on Monday night over the death in Minnesota of George Floyd.

Immediately following the speech, in an extraordinary scene, the president and his entourage walked outside of the White House, across Lafayette Square, to St. Johns Episcopal Church, which caught on fire during the protesters the night before.

During the brief visit, the president stood in front of the boarded-up church and held up a Bible. He was accompanied by a variety of aides and officials, including Attorney General Bill Barr, daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Defense Secretary Mark Esper.

On Sunday night rioters set fire to the parish house at St. John’s. The parish house contains offices and parlors for gatherings. The basement, which was also torched, is used for childcare during church services, and had recently undergone renovations. However, the damage could have been “a lot worse,” according to Rev. Rob Fisher.

“I am happy to share with you that I could see no other real damage besides that one room, and quite a bit of graffiti and debris around the exterior of the church,” Fisher said on Facebook. “Protestors easily could have done a lot worse to our buildings, but they chose not to do that. (The damage I saw to other nearby buildings illustrated this point.)”

Prior to his visit, police used tear gas to disperse protesters in the park. In his speech, the president vowed to end violent protests.

“I have recommended every governor deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers to dominate the streets,” the president said during his speech. “We are ending riots and lawlessness, we will end it today.”

Trump said he is dispatching “thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers and military personnel” to stop the rioting.

“I want organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties,” he said.

“We cannot allow the righteous cries of peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob,” the president added. “The biggest victims of this rioting are peace-loving citizens in our poorest communities.”

…Earlier on Monday, the president unloaded on governors in a phone call, accusing them of being “weak” in their response to the riots and urging them to “dominate.”

“Most of you are weak,” Trump said. “You have to arrest people.”

“You have to dominate, if you don’t dominate you’re wasting your time,” he said, according to a senior staffer in a governor’s office who was listening to the call. “They’re going to run over you, you’re going to look like a bunch of jerks. You have to dominate.”

“You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again,” said Trump. “We’re doing it in Washington, D.C. We’re going to do something that people haven’t seen before.”

Let’s face it, boys and girls. Since the riots began, President Trump has been in a no-win situation as far as the Democrats have been concerned.

If he would have sent in the National Guard and/or the Army the second day of the Antifa Uprising, the Dems would have complained that he was acting like a dictator and pulling the trigger too soon.

Now that he is about to take matters into his own hands, they are still saying he is a dictator.

However, he has left himself an out.

The Mayors and Governors of each state curently “playing host” to outside agitators from Antifa were supposed to be looking out for the American citizens under their care.

Instead, in every Blue State and city that Antifa invaded and set on fire, the governors and mayors told their police force and the National Guard to “stand by”, the same strategy used by the stupid Democratic Mayor in Baltimore during the riots after the death of Freddie Gray that caused Baltimore almost to be burned to the gound.

Just like Nero during the fall of Rome, these Democrat politicians have been fiddling while their cities burned.

They are not the only ones at fault, though.

Antifa has been recruiting young men with minds full of mush for 3 years while the FBI did nothing.

The inexplicable thing is that it has bee happening right before our very eyes.

Besides Bomber Bill Ayers’ website, RefuseFascism.org, there have been other anarchist websites all over the Dark Web.

Today’s modern technology has made it easy for anarchists all over the country to link up and to plan the attacks which we have been witnessing since last week.

The President and the Attorney General know this very well. That is why the President is naming Antifa a Domestic Terrorist Organization and why he made, excuse the expression, a barnburner of a speech last night.

While the Democrats were upset about the President standing in front of historic St John Church holding a Bible, “Big Fredo” Cuomo, the egotistical Governor of New York was refusing the President’s offer of help while rioters were gathering in the “Big Apple” for another night of “peaceful protests” (ie., rioting and looting).

I would love to see, as Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas has suggested, the 10st Airborne drop in on them.

Wouldn’t you?

Trump Sends National Guard to Secure Southern Border

Southern Border 4418

The ILLEGAL immigration catastrophe is our nation’s biggest challenge, not because we Americans are not a welcoming people. It is because Democrats have tried to make wanton lawlessness “acceptable” in a losing gambit to salvage their sinking party. – James Woods

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump signed a proclamation Wednesday night to send the National Guard to the southern border immediately, a senior White House official told Fox News, in response to what the administration described as an “unacceptable” flow of drugs, criminal activity and illegal immigrants.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at the White House press briefing that the signing would be done in conjunction with governors and that the administration hoped the deployment would begin “immediately.”

“Despite a number of steps this administration has taken…we continue to see unacceptable levels of illegal drugs, dangerous gang activity transnational criminal organizations and illegal immigration flow across our border,” she said.

“The president has directed that the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security work together with our governors to deploy our National Guard to our southwest border to assist the border patrol,” she said. “The president will be signing a proclamation to that effect today.”

Details about what the National Guard would do and how many would be deployed and for how long were not immediately disclosed.

Under the George W. Bush administration, deploying the National Guard to the border cost $415 million dollars.

Nielsen pointed to what she described as increasing fraud and exploited loopholes among arrivals on the southern border, saying traffickers have been advertising that if migrants have children with them, then they are more likely to be released into the U.S. She also said that almost 50 percent of arriving aliens are from Central America.

“Traffickers and smugglers know that these individuals cannot under U.S. law be easily removed in an expeditious way back to their country of origin and so they exploit the loophole,” she said, adding that the ability to game the system acts as a magnet for more migrants.

She said that the administration has drafted legislation and will ask Congress to provide legal authority and resources to address the problem.

“We will not allow illegal immigration levels to become the norm,” she said. “More than 1,000 people a day, 300,000 a year violating our sovereignty as a nation will never be acceptable to this president.”

Trump had tweeted earlier Wednesday that he would “be taking strong action today” on the Mexico border, a day after he said that he wants to send the military to secure it until a wall is built.

What we are witnessing, gentle readers, is a test of wills involving the willingness of those who have been entrusted with the security of our Sovereign Nation versus those who would break and enter our “home”.

What makes this incoming caravan from Latin America and those who are already here illegally exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world?

By attempting to use our own benevolence against us, they seek to bypass the rules and regulations which immigrants before them have followed in order to become productive American Citizens.

Even as I write this, those who have entered illegally before the caravan are in our hospitals, taking advantage of our charity and the finest health care system in the world, and driving our streets, with either forged drivers licenses or those obtained from states who have acquiesced and given them to these “undocumented workers”.

Stopping this “Breaking and Entering” at our Southern Border is in no way a human rights issue.

Freedom is God-given, and with freedom comes responsibility….the responsibility to become a productive citizen. And, with that citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way.

My concerns about granting asylum and, eventually, citizenship to those who have already invaded our country include the following…

1. Patriotism – Will these new “citizens” be willing to fly our flag above theirs? Will they be willing, if called upon, to serve in our Armed Forces, at home or abroad? Will they love this country, more than the one they left?

2. Loyalty – When these “new Americans” achieve the right to vote, are they all going to vote Democrat, so that they can receive more FREE STUFF? Is the Republican Party shooting themselves in both feet by pushing an outcome which will simply add new Democratic Voters? As I asked in the first point, will they honestly embrace our sovereign nation as their new home? Or, will they remain loyal to the Latin American Countries that they came from?

3.  Immigration – Are we rewarding illegal behavior, while at the same time, insulting all of the brave souls who have come here legally, seeking a better life for themselves and their families?

I understand that people want a better life for themselves and their children.  But there is a huge difference between immigrating here legally and sneaking in illegally, between assimilating into an existing culture, and insisting on replacing a country’s existing culture with that of the country you left.

I’m all for assisting anyone in becoming a legal citizen of the United States, if that is their wish.  But, they must enter our Sovereign Nation in the right way, showing a willingness to learn our language, and to embrace our American way of life, including respecting the American Flag.

America became a great nation because it is a melting pot of American-born and legally immigrated citizens with a shared allegiance, not a multi-cultural United Nations with everyone loyal to their home country.

As the diseases which Obama’s Mexican Munchkin Migration brought in with them in 2014 showed us, a wide-open Southern Border is as big a threat to the sovereignty of the United States as anything that our enemies can throw at us right now.

The caravan which is reportedly still heading toward the Southern Border is nothing but a political ploy and a way of testing the conviction of President Trump and the American People.

A test like this was previously attempted by our friends from down south from February 23 – March 6 in the year 1836 as they attempted to seize a small mission on the outskirts of San Antonio, Texas.

Some brave Americans, including a Former Tennessee Congressman sacrificed their lives during their siege.

For the sake of their memories, our nation’s sovereignty must be protected.

That is why President Trump had to send the National Guard to the border.

This is our country, bought and paid for by the blood of heroes.

America’s Liberty must remain a precious commodity.

And, when it comes down to it, Liberty is Freedom with Responsibility.

Until He Comes,

The Era of the “Post-Racial” President Continues: Baltimore Burning

 

th (3)I’ve made it very clear that I work with the police and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that the protesters were able to exercise their right to free speech. It’s a very delicate balancing act, because, while we tried to make sure that they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on, we also [as a result] gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well. And we worked very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to deescalate, and that’s what you saw. – Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake

As I am trying to compose today’s blog, I am sitting in my car, waiting for my wife to get off from work, listening to Sirius XM Channel 114, which is the Fox News Feed.

After the funeral of Freddie Gray, a black man who died, under mysterious circumstances, while in police custody, the city of Baltimore has erupted into rioting and looting.

The Washington, DC CBS Affiliate reported that

Residents and commuters are being urged to avoid parts of Baltimore as a large riot continues to grow violent Monday evening.

Baltimore Police say seven officers, including one who is unresponsive, have been injured. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has put the National Guard ‘on alert’ to respond to the situation.

Police have sprayed mace and used tear gas to stop the riots, but a large group of teenagers continued to throw bricks, rocks and other items at officers.

Rioters are currently looting businesses, including a CVS in the area of North Ave. and Pennsylvania Ave. The CVS is now on fire.

Police are urging all parents of Baltimore to locate their children and bring them home, as the riots consist of a large number of juveniles.

The Baltimore Orioles game against the White Sox has now been postponed because of the unrest.

The Maryland State Police has sent more than 80 of its troopers to assist Baltimore Police. Montgomery Co. police are also assisting.

One of WNEW’s reporters Steve Dorsey was injured and his phone was stolen during the protests.

WNEW’s Karen Adams reports police have arrested at least two people so far. The protests started in the area of Mondawmin Mall have spilled into nearby streets and neighborhoods.

Police say the group has refused to follow orders and the department is continuing to deploy resources into the neighborhoods near the mall. Officers are also using fire extinguishers to put out small fires that rioters started.

Later last night CBS Baltimore reported that

Fifteen Baltimore City police officers were injured, multiple vehicles were vandalized and set on fire, and businesses were looted as a massive group of rioters ran wild along North Avenue early Monday evening.As a result, a city-wide curfew was put in place in an effort to restore order.

It’s believed the riots may be a result of fliers that were apparently shared over the weekend on social media asking high schoolers to rally at Mondawmin Mall. It was supposed to be a peaceful march for Freddie Gray that extended from Mondawmin Mall to The Avenue.

Instead, things quickly spiraled out of control.

Police said the hurt officers suffered injuries from flying debris in the melee as rioters began attacking them unprovoked. At least one was knocked unconscious. Two officers remained hospitalized Monday night. Twenty-seven suspects were arrested.

By 7 p.m., Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency and activated the National Guard to address the growing violence and unrest. Many businesses in downtown Baltimore closed early and streets were eerily quiet as workers and residents feared the protests and violence would return to the heart of Charm City.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake declared a week-long curfew to be in effect from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. in the city in an effort to curb further violence and rioting. This curfew is in addition to the juvenile curfew already in effect for the city.

“What we see going on tonight that is going on in our city is very disturbing. It is very clear there is a difference between what we saw over the past week with the peaceful protests, those who wish to seek justice, those who wish to be heard and want answers, and the difference between those protests and the thugs who only want to incite violence and destroy our city,” said Rawlings-Blake during a press conference Monday evening.

The mayor said the only exceptions for people to be on the streets during the curfew would be for medical emergencies or those going to work.

“I’m a life-long resident of Baltimore, and too many people have spent generations building up this city for it to be destroyed by thugs who, in a very senseless way, are trying to tear down what so many have fought for,” she said. “We are deploying every resource possible to gain control of the situation and to ensure peace moving forward.”

And, summer hasn’t even started yet.

Is it just me, or do you also remember that we are supposed to be living under the first post-racial president?

It sure does not seem that way. Ever since Obama got into office, all I have heard from him is the Rhetoric of Racial Division and Class Warfare.

It reminded me of all the historical conflicts which I used to read about, during the course in college which I took, titled “The Rhetoric of Social “.

Karl Marx knew long ago that all you needed to do to touch the heart of the common man was to convince him of a shared struggle.

Vladimir Lenin took this a step further, by using the concept of a shared struggle to convince the Bolsheviks to help him overthrow the Czar of Russia and murder him and his family during the Russian Revolution.

Forgive me for stating the obvious, but fiery rhetoric spoken by a national leader has consequences.

President Barack Hussein Obama is as responsible for what is happening in Baltimore as any thug wannabe in that city.

However, he is not alone in his responsibility.

Also responsible are the black political leaders, including the mayor, in Baltimore. Their silence speaks volumes. By the mayor, whether on purpose or inadvertently, giving carte blanche to the rioters to destroy, she, like the Roman Emperor Nero, lit the match that has set her kingdom ablaze.

I remember, as a 9 year old in Memphis, Tennessee, watching my parents’ black and white television as the National Guard was called into action on the night that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated.

I remember after that Civil Defense Announcement that President Lyndon Johnson come on national television to make the announcement of Dr. King’s death. I remember a feeling of helplessness and of fear, as a nine-year-old, that I had not felt before.

It wasn’t just the fact that we were living in Midtown Memphis, that made me afraid.

It was the fact of the out-of-control violence itself, that caused my consternation.

And now, all these years later, I have the same feelings tugging at my gut. It’s not because I can’t take care of myself, trust me, I can.

It is because, those leaders, who have sworn to protect American Citizens, up in our nation’s capital and in Baltimore, have skirted that responsibility.
