National Guard: Toddler snack meals

The fiasco involving the Democrats' misuse of the National Guard just keeps expanding. According to the Washington Examiner's Tim Carney: National Guard troops stationed at the Capitol famously have had to nap on the building's marble floors, but that's not the worst thing about their working conditions. The food is. The reason: The National Guard Bureau hired a food contractor to feed the troops, but the contractor simply messed up. The fare, it turns out, was junk food, which one Guardsman's wife called "toddler snacks." One example, from Carney, whose story has all the miserable proof in the pictures:

Meals cost less than $3 a pop.

Less than $3 a pop, retail - but how much did WE pay for those meals?

The National Guard, deployed to save inaugural Washington from an onrush of violent MAGA hat-wearing barber shop quartets, alter guild ladies, Sunday morning service ushers, historical reenactors, Elks, small business owners and other Conservatives, is still there. The preferred story by Democrats and other loons is that on January 6th the Right attempted a coup by storming the Capitol Building with a small number of unarmed trespassers who mainly wandered around aimlessly and gawked in what was reported as a highly threatening manner. At that, the Communists in charge of the whole damned District brought their foot soldiers in place and are, no doubt, going to use them. We see those troops as brothers, sisters, daughters, sons, boyfriends, wives, husbands, patriots and heroes but to the criminal Left they are just the help, just bitter clingers and deplorables and their well-being is a mere afterthought. The toddler snacks are the modern equivalent of slave food and are meant as an insult.

This is really sad, our troops deserve better than this, but wait, the small kid- size meals are perfect when you only have one bathroom w two stalls to accommodate 5, 000 men. I bet the illegal aliens fare better w Biden in office then these soldiers.

Aren't there a some McDonalds, Wendys, Burger Kings, Jack In The Boxes and a few other local breakfast joints they could have gotten food from? How 'bout pizza delivery. That was always good in college - even for breakfast. If I was using hired security I'd be paying top dollar to keep them happy. Might check out Roman emperor Caligula and his untimely demise.

The National Guard were used as a prop by the Democrats to gin up easily manipulated liberals and to villanize Trump supporters. Maybe next time the Governors of red States will think twice.

A deployment that size is a logistical nightmare. We used to avoid much of it by bringing our own tents, heaters, food (MRE's) and heavy construction equipment. We had engineers from all the trades who could build just about anything. We did have to contract locally for fuel and outhouses, but that beats contracting everything. Our squadron had two engineer teams back then, 100 man and 250 man. I imagine 25,000 would be a lot trickier.

No, Monica, the ultimate blame falls on the logisticians and commanders - especially the Chief of the Guard Bureau. The Chief and his G-4 should be sacked immediately. As #10 says there are many moving parts to this, and given the lack of mobe orders it was a slap dash operation. But that doesn’t mean they can’t improvise. For example, we are a total Army, right? What about Fort Myer as a support area? Joint Base Anacostia? Or would that disturb the generals in their quarters? I’m just thinking out loud here, but from a military chain of command aspect this was an epic fail, and the Army Chief of Staff needs to get on the podium and answer for this.

Governors, call your National Guard Home! It is outrageous to leave them there when they are treated like that! There is no good reason for them to be there. D.C is not under siege! If Members of congress are afraid for their lives, they should quit and to home and get a real job. Otherwise, shut up and quit whining!

FTA, "So whoever it was, it kind of looks as though a contractor took the cash and minimized delivery, quite possibly keeping the extra for himself. There are more ways than one of creating a $6,000 toilet seat, it seems." Always, follow the money. I would bet the "contractor" had no experience but had all the correct qualifications to get a payback from the RATs. The reason the Guard Bureau won't name the "contractor" is probably because it's some relative of a member of the House or Senate. Maybe Xiden's brother or son Hunter got the contract. We'll never know.

Perhaps the troops would be better off if they told 'officials' whoever these jerks are, that they are illegals. They will rush mattresses, solid food, toilettes, showers and anything else they need. WHO is the jerk of a general supposedly 'handling' our troops?? Hunter Biden in charge of them????

A portion of Highway 1 near Big Sur, Calif., collapsed this week and fell into the Pacific Ocean after heavy rains caused a “debris flow” of trees, boulders, water and mud, leaving behind a 150-foot-wide gap. Workers from the California Department of Transportation had been assessing the section of the road near Rat Creek, about 20 miles by highway from Big Sur, on Thursday when they discovered the debris on the road, the department said. The department entered into an emergency contract that evening with a construction company to repair the road, but on Friday morning, workers discovered that both lanes had fallen into the ocean below.

In Mexico and in camps along the U.S.-Mexico border, migrants and refugees are gathering, awaiting the day when the new president tells them they can come on in. A humanitarian crisis is building on our border, forcing Joe Biden to scale back his immediate plans to radically change immigration policies. He has delayed the formation of a committee to reunite families who were separated when the parents were caught trying to enter the U.S. illegally with their children. A federal judge ordered a halt to his 100-day moratorium on deportations. And Republicans in the Senate are dragging their feet on confirming Biden’s Homeland Security secretary.

"Donald Trump poses an imminent threat, not just to another person but to all of humanity.” That was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week justifying an immediate impeachment trial of Trump, right? Nope. That was from an article published in 2017 about a book by a group of psychiatrists who, having never met or talked to Trump, decreed that for the sake of the human race he had to be removed from office. Throughout Trump’s presidency, in fact, he’s been described as an “imminent threat” to the future of the country. Tom Steyer said in 2017 that “he really is

Shortly after President Trump was banned on Twitter on Friday, Hillary Clinton was out in force on Twitter, spending the time and effort it takes to dig up one of her years-old tweets against him in order to crow about the event as some kind of victory. On Twitter, she put out this: (Snip for tweet) Her tweet is a reference to an old pre-2016-election tweet she put out, demanding that President Trump close his entire account. "Delete your account" was her insulting demand to something then-candidate Donald Trump tweeted at the time, and among her supporters, she got a lot of applause.

The new party line that social media and the propaganda narrative media are enforcing is that any questioning of the fairness of the past presidential election amounts to incitement to violence. Apparently using that illogic as a basis, Jack Dorsey’s Twitter actually censored a video that President Trump posted, calling for demonstrators to go home and be peaceful. That sort of thinking would lead to Twitter suspending the accounts of anyone complaining about racial injustice, since Black Lives Matter demonstrations have wreaked so much damage on so many cities, in the name of racial justice. Of course, the same standards never apply to leftists and conservatives when Twitter is censoring.

But while Biden made the election all about battling COVID-19 and “healing the nation,” that is not what the far left that controls the Democratic Party cares about. It has bigger plans — namely, to turn the nation into a California-style one-party state. By all rights, the 2020 elections should be a warning to extremists on the left.
