(Video) As the threat of violence ramps up in America again, hundreds of exhausted National Guard troops have been forced to sleep on the cold marble floor of the Capitol building. Incredible images show politicians practically stepping over the troops clinging to their rifles in the hallways of the heart of the US government. Sleeping in almost any spot they can find, some are forced to use stairs as a makeshift pillow to get some rest as they ready for a potential insurgence in the run-up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next Wednesday.

Appalling. There are photos here you will never see on our MSM. And this is the best article. Why? Because it is the foreign press. Ours has been cancelled for a long, long time. They are putting out minimal photos, taken this morning in daylight, describing what is shown as “resting”.

They are determined to turn us into a police state. Does anyone actually think there are going to be any people at his inauguration?

Bee Ess! The NG officers are full of it! Where are ***they*** “resting? These troops deserve better. Different subject: there are weapons, but is there any ammunition? Probably not.

You would think that the political party of big government (the Democrats) would have access to and have provided enough cots so that the National Guard troops would not have to sleep on the floor.

I don't believe much of this is necessary. Noise to detract from the stolen election, and the inauguration of a fake president.

When I was in the military we could and did sleep everywhere. In trucks, in the desert, in tents, in airports, in warehouses, in forests and foxholes, pretty much wherever one could catch a few minutes of sleep. Whatever purely political purpose they were doing there I dont know, but they probably dont feel abused. Its just another day in uniform.

#5, first, thank you for your service. :) Second, my daughter is a Marine, and when I had a layover on a flight to visit, there was a young Marine sleeping on the floor in the airport. People kept staring at him. I texted my daughter and said I felt so bad for him. She said, I promise it does not bother him, he's probably glad for a little extra sleep! LOL

Where is big mouth Gen. Millie?? It is an outrage that cots, mattresses or other floor covering can't be provided for the troops. Hotels always have extra. I doubt there will be huge crowds coming to see the pedophile, traitor, plagiarist faux Alzheimer freak being sworn in. This is how our troops are treated??? The entire General bunch of hypocrites that Pelausi recently contacted, (can't she be impeached for that, trying to wrest power from the President?) should be on the carpet and the President should chew them out and then spit them out! What a disgrace!!!!!!!

I have no idea what that was all about. The DC Armory is a mile from the Capitol and there is ample room to set up cots. I just hope they are eating MREs so that Congress can smell the after effects.

The ability and the need to grab some sleep pert near anywhere and at any time you're not on the line is a hallmark of Infantry troops everywhere, across all centuries and millennia. On the other hand, it's kind of jarring to see what looks like a battalion of soldiers kitted up for combat in various states of repose while their Commander in Chief is being impeached in the same building.

I'm sorry, but I thought they looked quite rag-tagged. What the heck? What are they doing to get ready for the antifa insurgence that keeps them all at the Capitol? Why do they need to be laid out on the Capitol floor like that? Why are so many of them resting at the same time? Resting from what? They're not in battle. Don't they work in shifts? Why can't they go home? Do all of them have to be there at the same time? Have they occupied the Capitol? Why are they all so darn sleepy? This doesn't look right to me. FTA "In a bid to stop a repeat of last week’s scenes, some 20,000 guardsmen are being deployed to Washington, DC, by the weekend. That’s more than triple the amount of troops on the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan combined."

To address some of #16's concerns, a great deal of deployment is hurry up and wait. They have everyone assemble at some ungodly hour and make everyone go through a processing line to make double dead dog sure everyone has shots, a will, all their gear and paperwork. Then they sit tight while the cargo is palletized and taken to the terminal. They get briefing after briefing about what to expect, rules of engagement and whatever information they can be given. I've seen that take as much as six or seven hours. Then they load up into the busses and trucks and go to the terminal themselves, where they wait for an airplane that may or may not be on time. Then they watch their cargo being loaded and try to squeeze into the airplane seats with their gear, where they often wait for hours for someone to give the order to take off. At this point you are still on adrenaline so its fine. You dont want to sleep anyway, because orders can and do come down with no notice. Or they dont. So you arrive at the destination and assemble at some point, where you drag your bags and equipment to wherever it is you are going, and you wait some more. Eventually you get sick of war stories and bad jokes, and the cards arent fun anymore. The exhaustion hits and you zonk out. The elite units may be able to deploy very quickly, but the regular outfits, not so much.

Ridiculous drama. A handful of protesters, including members of Antifa and BLM broke thru the hapless Capital Police to enter the building and the Democrats are treating it like it was the Alamo.

There are more troops in DC right now than are in Afghanistan or anywhere else. Sorry, Nancy, there won't be any Trump supporters there to be violent. They will be stopping Antifa and BLM from causing trouble. Then you will have a real mess because those evil groups will protest being arrested. But have no fear; our new Vice President will pub up bail for them.. What a mess you have created!

I hate to tell the Democrats, but the barn door (Capitol security) was left open last week for a moronic mob to rush into the Capitol building and scare the crap out of the Congressional aristocracy, and now all the horses are gone. In reality the chances of the Capitol building being rushed again appear to be low. Regardless the Democrats are putting on a show for the media by bringing in a lot of National Guard troops from many States without having the logistics in place to support them, as can be seen by the troops sleeping on the floor and eating out of field ration containers. When I was in Vietnam during all of 1968 we slept in many hard places, that in itself does not phase the troops, one of the safest places to sleep was on top of a hard low sandbag wall. As when the mortar shells and rockets started coming in and you rolled off onto the ground, you immediately lowered your chances of being hit by 50% depending on the side of the wall you landed. But DC is not Vietnam, and these days the Democrats are now building barbed wire fences with concertina wire on the top around the Capitol building, and are requesting that the military bring in even 50 caliber machine guns to use against American protestors. Not a good look for America around the world.

Thank you, poster #17. I can see waiting for a C-130 or something, but they are in the Capitol building. I was married to a Marine for 25 years, I never saw anything like this. Our military is full of professionals; this looks like a bunch of third world soldiers. The Capitol building is not a hangar.

Gab CEO completely backed up President Trump’s Twitter account before it was deleted and recreated him on Gab.

Social media giants Facebook and Twitter have collectively seen $51.2 billion in combined market value wiped out over the last two trading sessions since they banned President Donald Trump from their platforms following the U.S. Capitol breach. Large tech firms and a number of Democratic political figures have claimed Trump incited violence at the U.S. Capitol last week. (Snip) Trump took to Twitter following the outbreak of violence to call on protesters to “go home in peace.” He denounced the violence as a “heinous attack” that “defiled the seat of American democracy” on Jan. 7. It is unclear who instigated the breach of the building.

On Jan. 6, supporters of President Donald Trump gathered in the nation’s capital for a demonstration, called the “Save America March.” The plan was to hold a rally in The President’s Park just south of the White House and then march to the Capitol building to demand that Congress and Vice President Mike Pence reject electoral votes for former Vice President Joe Biden from states where election results were marred by irregularities, allegations of fraud, and unconstitutional voting rule changes. By the end of the day, the Capitol went through several rounds of lockdown after a sizable group of protesters broke inside.

On Sunday, House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.) said that, while House Democrats would take up articles of impeachment this week against President Trump, the House might delay sending to the Senate any articles passed by the House until after President-elect Biden’s first 100 days in office.(Snip) Once Trump’s term ends on Jan. 20, Congress loses its constitutional authority to continue impeachment proceedings against him — even if the House has already approved articles of impeachment. Therefore, if the House of Representatives were to impeach the president before he leaves office, the Senate could not thereafter convict the former president and disqualify him under the Constitution from future public

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

President Trump potentially faces a torrent of criminal charges when he leaves office, including charges linked to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, making prosecutors worry that he is a flight risk. Mr. Trump’s real estate empire extends to multiple luxury properties in countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the United States. And Mr. Trump himself publicly mused in October that he’d leave the country if he lost to Democrat Joseph R. Biden. Douglas McNabb, a private attorney with expertise in international extradition defense, said that if criminal charges are brought, Mr. Trump fits the bill for becoming a fugitive from justice.
