Default Fortress DC

https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/11/polit...ity/index.html

Law makers on both sides do not understand why the capital still looks like a military base.

Members of Congress have sought clarity from US Capitol Police and the Pentagon as to why the deployment of Guard troops was extended this week through May but have not been given a clear explanation, according to a source familiar with the outreach.

This has to be some type of sick political move by Democrats.

The left is afraid of their constituents. And they should be as they try to cram their left wing wish list down our throats in spite of our objections.

It's typical of socialist dictators to loyal military guard and fortifications to maintain their grip on the power they obtained on power they obtained in a revolutionary war or sham election. Biden is no different from his tyrannical predecessors in Cuba or Venezuela.

I believe Biden is too retarded to have made the move to armor the capitol. This looks like something a stinking, communistic, totalitarian ass hole like Kamala would do.

Oh I see, so the left thinks that one nut job that rammed his car into a barricade is a reason for the military fortification?

Let me guess, the perp is the mastermind of an army of Trump supporters that are going to ram cars and trucks into barricades. Is that how you will spread the new conspiracy?

Other than that one guy, NOTHING has happened since Jan 6th.

Do we know is the guy is a Trump supporter? Or is he with the folks below?

March 1, 1971 - A bomb planted in a restroom on the Senate side of the Capitol exploded causing damage but no deaths or injuries. The device was detonated by the leftist group, the Weather Underground, to protest the U.S.-backed invasion of Laos. Bill Ayers ( Obama's Mentor )


Shots were fired and the building was locked down.

Nov. 7, 1983: A bomb under a bench outside the Senate chamber planted by a leftist group exploded late at night, blowing the hinges off the door to the office of then-Senate Democratic leader Robert Byrd of West Virginia. The chamber was deserted and no one was hurt. Members of the group, known as the Resistance Conspiracy, were upset about U.S. military involvement in Lebanon and Grenada.

American Citizens cannot visit the capital because of fences and armed border guards behind them and yet our southern border is open to anyone willing to walk just walk in.

Oddly,,,; Citizens are not safe from our enemies but the government is safe and secluded from the citizens.

How can anyone not see what is wrong with this picture.

The shlt hitting the fan (especially at the border) can be restrained only for a short time. My opinion, so you Biden lovers don't get your panties in a knot.

I'm not a Biden fan. Where did you ever get that idea?

A Despicable politician. Plagiarism, infidelity, racist race baiting bigot, his entire family is corrupt.

Drug addict Hunter admits to infidelity with his wife's sister. What he doesn't admit is screwing her @ss whilst his BIL was lying in hospital dying of cancer.
What a despicable @ss.
Of course his dad, Sleepy Joe, was , according to her ex-husband, screwing Jill while his own first wife was dying. Infidelity and immorality and disgusting behavior seems ok if you are a Democrat. Especially if you are a Biden democrat.
Add to that the immoral Kamala Harris and one can see why they get along so well.

What I cannot understand is how they all got elected to high office by the same people who claimed Donald Trump was immoral.

By making Trump out to be "the worst", they can justify voting for anyone corrupt and dangerous by yelling "better than Trump!!!!"...It's sole purpose is justification...

You can insert any actual despot, foreign or domestic, and they'll reflexively snap, "At least they're not Trump!" and make themselves feel good about it...
