Experts slam decision to extend National Guard occupation of the Capitol

Experts are slamming the Pentagon’s decision to extend National Guard deployment of 2,300 members at the U.S. Capitol until May 23 to protect against unknown threats, a decision that is also championed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who continues to swipe at phantom threats to the Capitol. 

Heritage Foundation security analyst Jim Carafano called the action “a collusion of stupidity” in a Washington Examiner interview. “It doesn’t pass the commonsense test. You’re gonna have a mob show up in Washington with no notice whatsoever?”

National Guard personnel have been stationed at the U.S. Capitol since the riots on Jan. 6. More than 25,000 troops guarded the Inauguration Day events.

Retired Gen. Russel Honoré recently recommended a quick reaction force always on the ready to respond to capital emergencies that could be composed of National Guard members on three or six month rotation. The general was selected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)  to review Capitol security following the security breach on Jan. 6.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby stated Wednesday that the ongoing Guard presence includes more than threat protection. “It’s not just about the threat environment,” he said.

“In a highly polarized, hypercharged environment that we’re in right now, its 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.”

Cost increasingly becomes a question as Guard troops remain a long-term Capitol presence. The deployment originally intended to end today was estimated at $483 million, though the updated figure for the Guard’s extended presence has not been released.

The news comes as Rep. Lauren Boeber (R-CO) has launched a video ad calling on Pelosi to “tear down this wall.” The ad blames Democrat actions for the ongoing fence around the U.S. Capitol.

The U.S. Capitol needs protection, but Americans increasingly grow weary of National Guard troops as the best option. As the nation longs for a return to normal, citizens hope for more normality in Washington as well.

  1. Send home the troops and take down the prison fencing. We dont pay to protect traitors. Hire your own guard with the millions you have stolen.

    1. I agree! Those soldiers were not meant to be used at her disposal, after all they do have jobs, families to go home to plus a nice warm bed and untainted good food waiting for them. I wish she would just retire and go back to CA and take of her own family, that’s if she has one left.

      1. Pelosi knows she hated🤣 Remember the man who stormed the Capital, he was walking in the hall saying “ Nancy, oh Nancy, where are you!” 🤣🤣🤣

    2. I LOVE IT JUNE. THEY SEEM TO FORGET THAT THE CAPITOL BELONGS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ALSO PAY THEIR SALARIES. WE DO NOT NEED A WALL AROUND THE CAPITAL. WE NEED THE WALL THAT TRUMP STARTED AT THE BORDER. HOPE ALL THE IMMIGRANTS LOOK UP EVERY DEMOCRAT THEY CAN FIND FOR A VISIT TO LET THEM KNOW HOW GRATEFUL THEY ARE TO THE DEMOCRATS TO LET THEM IN.

    3. Absolutely and use their own salaries to fund their personal interests…not our taxes… finish the wall on the boarder… Tear that fencing down… it’s the Americans house…use their… rats…to fund all illegals being let in…go back to being a civil servants pay… most worked jobs outside their service…not a full time job in congress etc….only pay them a reasonable wage when working… they only work a total of a few months in total for the year… they don’t need a quarter mill salary… they are already millionaires n billionaires in their own right…

  2. Send the troops home remove you 3rd world fence and quit trying to destroy the country. You and members of the Democratic Senators were saying to revolt the same day 1/6/2021. Enough of the lies and stop paying the states that are broke and having trouble because of their actions.

  3. Pelosi’ 12 ft fence with razor wire!!! She doesn’t need our National Guard as her private protector’s. If she wasn’t so filled with Hate and Evil, then she wouldn’t have to be worried about her safety.

  4. Law enforcement has already arrested and holding without bail anyone that even came close to the Capitol so what is there to fear? What about the riots and damage being done to the courthouse in Portland? Since the rioters are antifa there will be no arrests and probably hefty paychecks for the ones breaking window and spray painting graffiti all over the building. Is not the courthouse a federal building? Where is the fences and National Guard when you need them? Oh, sorry I forgot they are in DC keeping the btch safe.

  5. Stop using them to protect yourselves use your police department to keep you all safe if you’re that scared of being harmed but we all no it’s not that at all it is to make all americans look bad to your side well stop acting like little crying baby’s stomping there feet you’s are way more immature than a1 or 2 year old child latly

  6. I would like to pose a question. How much longer are Congressmen and women going to take before that start fighting back against that OLD BIDDY who thinks she runs the government an
    d the American people

  7. It sounds like the only one that is afraid of something is Nancy. Could it be because she is the one who started something? The answer to this is tear down all the fencing, send back all the troops and just leave one guard outside Nancy’s door to protect her. Deduct his salary out of her paycheck. End of all of DC’s problems and everything is restored to National Mall order.

  8. the Pentagon is a Big Frigging joke now by caving in to Pelosi. The National Guard need to return to there homes

  9. I think Pelosi is catching Joe’s dementia or vice-versus. Its just not obvious since we are so used to her crazy antics.
    I just never knew it was contagious. Actually contagious dementia also explains the rest of them also: Schumer, Nadler, Schiff, AOC,etc.

  10. The troops are needed at the border to protect American Citizens, you know, the ones who pay Pelosi’s salary. If IT worked for an American business, IT would have been fired years ago, incompetent, vindictive, angry. hateful IT, whose time in Congress should have been over years ago. IT needs to hire and pay for a body guard just for ITSELF, IT needs to stand outside IT’S door and follow IT everywhere IT goes. Had to use ‘IT’ because we can’t use gender anymore, wonder if IT likes being identified as an IT?

    1. ROFL…I thought you used “IT” because no human could be as disgustingly evil as “Pollute-ski.” (The czar wannabe.) I pray almost daily for her, Schumer, Biden, Harris, AOC and the squad, McConnell, Cheney, Romney, and others, asking God to PLEASE remove them from office Himself.

  11. Peelosi is using the military to protect her from what ? They keep saying they have cause but have yet to actually show any kind of proof. This is nothing more than a power grab by the democrats.
